Ousted over a pyramid of Peeps
A Colorado woman says she is being evicted for leaving her Easter decorations up too long. Carol Burdick, 59, admits she festooned her apartment door with plastic grass, Easter eggs, and a pyramid of Peeps marshmallows, and that she initially refused to take the decorations down when asked to do so by apartment managers. Her lawyer says Burdick’s constitutional rights are being violated. “An Easter decoration is a religious statement and should be protected,” the lawyer said. “Even if it’s just bunnies.”

Collection agency pursues unpaid lunch fees
As the recession deepens, one Iowa school district has hired a collection agency to extract students’ lunch money from parents. Marshalltown Community School District officials say local families owe them $25,900 in unpaid lunch fees, and that using a collection agency was preferable to denying food to the children of the deadbeats. “I’m hoping that we see a little more response,” said Ann Feilmann, the district’s food service director.
