Flock Focus Friday, 9/5/14

My backyard.
I dislike politics more than I dislike having poison ivy, so to be caught up in local politics simply because I keep chickens in my backyard is like purgatory here on earth. The good news is, the constant, unrelenting public pressure from my supporters all around the world is making a difference in the battle to keep my birds. Both print and television media are covering the story and the public officials are feeling the heat!


Attorney and former Suffield First Selectman, Scott Lingenfelter has called upon the current First Selectman, Ed McAnaney, to terminate the employment of the Zoning Enforcement Officer, Jim Taylor in no uncertain terms. Here is a portion of his email yesterday: 


"I understand that Jim Taylor has a grudge against the Morminos and has had a vendetta against them for some time. His lies and misrepresentations over the course of the last year plus are unacceptable and have cost the Town of Suffield financially, as well as negatively impacted the Town from a public perception standpoint. The actions are now illegal and may put the town in serious jeopardy. If the Town is now interfering with a private transaction, then you need to step up and take charge as First Selectman. This cannot continue. Jim Taylor’s improper conduct cannot continue and he needs to be disciplined. 

I beg of you to show some leadership and stop Mr. Taylor from his continued improper conduct. At this point, nothing short of termination is acceptable.  

I would like a copy of all invoices from Attorney Smith to the Town of Suffield for services rendered related to the Mormino matter, so that we can see what Jim’s actions have cost the town so far. 

Sincerely,

Scott R. Lingenfelter, Esq."

    I love reading about your chickens. I have 5 of my own, but nowhere near as much room as you do. Luckily I have other neighbors with chickens too, so no complaints so far! I'm sure my girls would love to snack on some of those yummy chubby mealworms!

    I sent an e-mail suggesting Mr. Taylor resign. Pointing out that he is a detriment to his community and that the attention this is receiving nationwide is not good publicity. I kept it logical and unheated and analyzed his situation and made my suggestion. I hope he takes heed and does so.

  21. Have been keeping you in our prayers!! My ladles have never had mealworms!

    I've been following your story and the issues you are having with your 'wonderful' neighbors and city officials. Hope I never have neighbors like that. I don't think I could have kept my cool as you have. I know you will succeed in your fight; don't give up. Keeping my fingers crossed for you. I have a question though......Do your neighbors have a life, a hobby? Because in my experience people that don't have a life or a hobby are the ones that create problems. They must be bored, jealous and miserable; but I am a firm believer that what goes around, comes around.....Keep your chin up and have a great weekend......:)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm still shocked by all of these things that you're going through! Glad to see you're keeping positive!

    The whole thing is such a stupid waste of resources. You're doing a good thing in a way that has always been respectful of your neighbors and they're spending money to fight you when I'm sure Suffield has other needs and ways to spend that money. I hope this ends quickly for your sake!

    I just think it's crazy that the town is wasting so much money and time over chickens. Raising your backyard chickens should be a right of residents. I know people in the City of Boston that keep chickens. I sent you the USDA poster that the US government insisted that people should keep a backyard flock. I don't think the town government can fight the US government.

  149. Hey Kathy! Not to get off the subject of chickens but I'd be interested in contacting your lawyer - Lingenfelter. I have been working on my family tree and have been able to go all the way back to my 10th great grandparents (Lingenfelters) in the 1500s in Germany. I thought it funny that his name should come up just as I was up to my elbows in Lingenfelters and I wonder if/how he might be related. If you would pass my email address along to him I'd appreciate it so I could share the family tree with him. eschwanke1@aol.com (Please don't publish this comment!)

    I have a "worms for eggs" policy. I hold up their eggs and tell them what good girls they are, then I pass out the worms. It also stops them from being mad at me after I clip their wings.

    Shame on them all but especially those 2 next door. None of this would be happening if it wasn't for them.

    I'll be sending an email too. This whole thing is just nuts! I live in the city and can have 30 chickens. And I have about 1/3 of the space you have! Anyway..My girls do love their bugs. That's what we call the mealworms! Thanks for another opportunity!

  164. I don't get what the "problem" is....Is it the roosters making noise or just you have chickens? my tiny town has some chickens in town. They don't bother anyone.Now my kids might sing for mealworms.

  178. Finally someone with some common sense in this situation. What a waste of time and money. I can see by your posts and pics, that you take very good care of your chickens and property. I doubt there are any noise or smell issues. I hope this gets resolved soon. Press on girl!
