    """INSPECTOR GENERAL: McCabe & Wife Were Neighbors for Years With Bill & Hillary Clinton; Friendship Spans Decades Before McCabe Cleared Hillary in Email Probe""" Inspector General investigators and real estate records confirm Andrew McCabe and his wife were long-time neighbors and likely family friends with Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, NY where the former President and Secretary of State still reside. Decades before McCabe cleared Hillary in the FBI’s controversial email investigation. From recent revelations, it appears the two families — the McCabe’s and the Clinton’s — have a personal and professional alliance spanning three decades.

    LEOMINSTER - After their futon caught fire, Paul Legere and his fiancee, Rosemary Allen, wondered whether they’d left something near it that started the blaze. After another fire in their house nine days later, they had a different suspicion. And after a third fire this week, they were in court to see a neighbor facing an arson charge.
  • Should You Call in a Noise Complaint on a Family With a Crying Baby?

    You’ve had a long day, and you have to get up early tomorrow morning. You’re tucked into bed and ready for a good night’s sleep when you hear it: Your neighbor’s baby is wailing away once again. Your sleep-deprived mind is split between two options: either do your best to ignore the infant’s unending crying fit, or file a noise complaint and let the police handle the problem. Many people have had to deal with this same scenario, and some folks on Quora shared their own stories on how they’ve dealt with it, but what would YOU do?
  • Houston's 'Cajun Navy,' brilliantly profiled

    The most remarkable fact about the horrible events in Texas was the minimal loss of life and of storm-related injuries. Much credit goes to the long advance warning, early and near total evacuations of "Ground Zero" residents, other preparations, and the fact that Hurricane Harvey's landfall was at a sparsely populated section of the coast. For all of that, we must be most grateful. The biggest lesson that must be reinforced is "stay out of your car," since many of the deaths were related to drownings associated with vehicle travel. The most engrossing story is that of the "Cajun Navy."...

    Looking for a way to end hate, intolerance, racism, and the rampant Islamophobia plaguing our country? Well, perhaps not end those things so much as signal to others that you stand against those things because you're a morally superior being? Then, the George Soros-backed progressive group that worked so hard to get Barack Obama elected twice, has just the thing for you: a plain white t-shirt emblazoned with the bold, smug declaration, "I Stand With My Muslim Neighbors."

The neighbor charged that the small child was: Running free in his backyard Laughing Giggling Carrying on without end My advice to this neighbor: Get out and get some fresh air — maybe even engage in a little “carrying on” yourself. I bet your dogs will thank you for it! How would you respond to the busybody neighbor?

    The couple and their five children are fond of unusual animals and urban agriculture. So the couple found an emu farm near Martinsville and brought home a chick about a year ago and named it Zazu. “It’s grown up with our family,” Mike Powell said. It started out sleeping in the couple’s bed. “Not the prettiest creature in the world, but we love it,” Mike Powell said. Today, it’s about 5 feet tall, and looks like a shaggy umbrella on long legs with large, reptilian feet. At the end of a long neck is a head with an expression that...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A man who walks around his neighborhood with a rifle strapped to his back says he is not a threat to harm anyone, but some neighbors fear he is an incident of vigilante justice waiting to happen. John Schultz, 19, also wears a bullet-proof vest, carries ammunition and has a knife in a holster as he walks through Walnut Creek, which is off Sunset Road in north Charlotte. The gun is his grandfather’s 303 British Enfield from WWII. His walks cause double-takes as well as safety concerns for some. Schultz says others thank him and wave at...

    Character is consistent. Voters say moral character is one of the most important things they look for in choosing the president. The character of a public figure can be hard to discern amidst a fog of self-advertising, hype, and the distorting effects of TV. ~snip~ An unusual personal story gives us insight into Mitt Romney. It is 1996. Mitt Romney is the head of Bain Capital in Boston. One of his employees comes to him, utterly distraught. His 14-year-old daughter snuck out of the house to go to a rave in New York and has been missing for three days....

    Actually this is an old story that has been going on for some time. Turns out the neighbors, not the city was the ones who had the beef with Michael Salman. Guy really ticked off his neighbors who all sided against him. From the story: But then Salman announced that he was planning to build a church right there in his backyard. He talked about not just Sunday services, but weeknight Bible studies, a workout room and basketball court, even a Christian day care center. "He gave us a lecture on the fact that all of us were going to...

    Last year our little household was forced to move from its home of 28 years to a new one. One thing we're having to deal with now that we've never had to worry about before is neighbors. We have cats. Two of them are fairly settled, but one (the sweetest one of course) is a little spitfire who enjoys going to the neighbor's house and getting on his cars. One of these cars is very rare (only so many were made), and apparently this little cat has been getting on it. Now our neighbor has no desire to be unpleasant...

    An Idaho businessman and his wife are pleading with the U.S. Supreme Court to stop the federal government’s “bullying” over the family’s simple plan to build a three-bedroom home on a plot of ground they purchased in an existing subdivision in Idaho, plans for which they already have obtained all the legally necessary building permits. The issue is that the Environmental Protection Agency claims that the land – which is surrounded by existing homes on three adjacent lots, has no standing water, and has no streams or creeks on it – is “wetlands.” This is how Mike and Chantell Sackett...

    COPLEY, Ohio — A gunman who killed seven people during a weekend rampage in his Ohio neighborhood cornered one of his victims, his girlfriend's 11-year-old nephew, in the basement of a house, ordered out the family sheltering the boy and then shot him, police said Monday. Michael Hance's cold-blooded killing of such a young victim after stalking seven other people on a tidy suburban Akron street named Goodenough Avenue was, neighbors said, the culmination of a dispute over a home that once belonged to his girlfriend's parents.
