You take care of what you have a deed for and leave other property owners alone. In the South, we mind our own business. If you want to control everything within a mile, then buy it and it is yours to control. Otherwise mind you own business. I will repeat it one more time so you can understand. Mind Your Own Business. That means your property and your property only. I hate it when busybodies move in.

NCN, you are probably the Resident or Owner of the Neighborhood Eyesore. Didn't mean to step on your toes I'm getting a detailed image of a very large Female with a couple of Babies on one hip, chewing on some snuff, while stepping over old tires,barrels, batteries,etc. I am very concerned with this situation, as there are small Children that live and play at this residence. They are in constant danger of being injured on objects thrown in the yard, or being bitten by Rodents, snakes, etc. ~~~Anyone else have any suggestions for my ORIGINAL post? Thanks

You're making a lot of assumptions that are both unnecessary and offensive. When you post on the internet you may get responses that you don't like. That's just part of it.

If you are in an incorporated area, call the city code enforcement.

If you're not, why not be neighborly and chat up your neighbor and see if they are in some sort of distress - no $$ to fix broken mower, injured and can't mow, depressed, etc. If you care about your fellow human being that can go a long way towards improving the neighborhood.

I was simply asking a Question: Couldn't help what "popped" in my mind when reading NCN 's reply. That's just part of it. I would be more than Happy to be "neighborly" and offer my help. However, when I see several Adult men (early twenties??) sitting under the shade tree for several hours a day, can't seem to offer my assistance while they watch me cut the grass ???? Just Keepin' it real here ~~~ Have a good day

Hope everything works out for you...but I'm not Fran. She is the point of contact I got when I had the same problem. I was merely forwarding her information. So she's the one you want. Good Luck!
