No vegetables allowedOfficials have charged an Oak Park, Mich., homeowner with a crime for growing vegetables in her own front yard. Although Julie Bass’s vegetable garden is tidy, city planner Kevin Rulkowski says vegetables are “not what we want to see in a front yard.” The city code requires “suitable” vegetation, says Rulkowski, which he defines as “a nice, grass yard with beautiful trees and bushes and flowers.”

Visiting the wrong graveTwo sisters are suing a New Jersey cemetery for $25 million because their mother was buried in the wrong grave. Evelyn and Hortense Edwards were distressed to learn that their mother was not in grave 103, which they’ve visited for 20 years, and are seeking damages to ensure that the cemetery “would not be inclined to do that again.”
