  4. Unfortunately, Mourdock is NOT representing his constituents when he voices his beliefs. They are HIS beliefs, not the beliefs of the majority of Indiana residents. The polls are reflecting that.

  5. @SusanZ, the property is much too dangerous to take my kids. The stickers would seriously hurt them. Also, not mentioned, the fence is 81' wide by 72' deep! That would cost a fortune, and would serve no purpose in the spring, fall and winter when the bush is not in bloom!
    The town did plant Arborvitae around the outside of the fence, They quickly died and are now tied with twine around the fence posts to keep them standing. Thanks for the suggestion!
    @Taxpayer: It is a shame that government is allowed to destroy someone's property and dreams of retirement at it's whim. It allows them to make decisions without accountability, and that is never a good combination.

  6. A fence may be warranted to deter vandalism, but a responsible and common sense approach would be to match the quality of the surrounding properties to the appropriate fencing material. Try to step out of the Cedartucky age instead of back into it.

  7. For clarification, the fence is 8 feet tall, PLUS the barbed wire. The property is zoned residential, not industrial. It is surrounded by wetlands, and 3 residential properties. No variances were applied for and no prior notification of installation of the fence was offered. The property was previously privately owned and well cared for. Arborvitae trees surrounded and hid the watershed. The town of Cedar Lake took over ownership a couple of years ago. The property is no longer maintained. The Arborvitae was cut down. The weeds grow over 3 feet tall and sticker bushes that could maim a child flourish.
    A fence is warranted to protect
