I was disappointed after reading the story about the man from South Williamsport being reported to the borough by his neighbor for a garden box. It reminded of something that happened to my dad when I was younger. We had just moved into a new house and my dad used a lawn aerator on our front yard which resulted in the yard being filled with little dirt clumps.
One of our neighbors came over and gently suggested to my dad that we should take care of all the dog poop in our yard. We had a small dog, but my dad informed our neighbor that he had just used a lawn aerator and that they were actually just dirt clumps. The neighbor was embarrassed, but my dad and him developed a mutual respect since he cared enough to walk over and talk to my dad himself.
