Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

No parking in Lincoln yards

To the editor:

Recently, my husband came home from work to help a neighbor. He parked in the yard and ran across the street for about 20 minutes.

The next day we received a letter from the city inspector with a picture of OUR truck parked in OUR yard. By parking in OUR yard, we had violated a CITY ordinance.

I was under the impression it was our property. We pay the house payment, we pay the property taxes. Apparently, because our yard is not gravel or asphalt we are not allowed to park in it. We were given seven days to correct the problem or else face a $75 fine.

[to top of second column in this letter]

Have no fear, city of Lincoln, the violation was corrected as soon as my husband finished helping our neighbor. Lincolnites, be aware of what you are allowed to do on your OWN property.
