Dispute between neighbors has deadly end
wgn news ^ | 4/25/2014 | Erik Runge

There is no question two households in the 8400 block of Carpenter in the Gresham neighborhood did not like each other.

In one house an off-duty officer identified by family as Courtney Hill and his wife Cathy, in the other, 86-year-old Joe Huff JR. and his wife Hazel.

Fraternal order of police spokesperson Pat Camden says the two women were fighting when one through some dirt at the other. Then both husbands come see what is going on.

Huffs family says the officer and his wife are to blame in this case. They point to a neighbor who says she called 9-1-1 when she heard yelling, she didn’t want to be identified.

“The minute a shot gun gets involved and someone pulled the trigger it’s gone from a simple dispute to a tragedy.

Whoever wrote that story did not grow up with English as his/her first language. And WGN has apparently laid off all of their editors.

The quality of writing by this reporter is execrable. I could write better than this in high school.

I agree, the writing stinks. It was hell to snip it down to excerpt size and still at least give a clue as to what happened.

..."one through some dirt at the other".

By God, that's how the "reporter" wrote it.

"Professional journalists" Yeah, right.

A good neighbor is a blessing and I’ve always been blessed with wonderful neighbors.

And I am in no way saying if you have a bad neighbor it’s your fault.

I’m just being grateful here.

You are correct but having a good neighbor is probably your fault :) LOL

Which is what Grant Balfour did for the Rays this evening: threw three walks, and threw the grand slam ball, which threw the game. Jose Abreu is pleased. Rays fans are less than pleased; one might say that they are angered through and through, or threw and threw, or perhaps thru and thru.

One might be correct in saying that they were angered through and through. One would not be correct in saying that they were angered threw and threw. "Thru" is a somewhat popular shorthand spelling for "through," that is not a correct spelling since it is not actually a word, nor is it interchangeable with "threw."

Getting into a beef with a neighbor is the nightmare scenario - no way out of it unless one or both parties grow up fast or someone moves and in the meantime there could be years of petty tantrums over tree branches, sprinkler coverage, dogs barking, any random trivia. Oh, and there’s the part where they expect others in the neighborhood to choose sides and take part in their very important debates.

“A good neighbor is a blessing and I’ve always been blessed with wonderful neighbors.”.....

When someone moves into a new neighborhood and asks, “How are the neighbors here? The best answer you can give is, “How were the neighbors where you came from?” Simply, if YOU are a good neighbor, chances are your new neighbors will also be “good neighbors”.

If Obama had a son, and his son was an author, he would write just like this!
