Peace Triggers Fight
Lisa Jensen is about to discover that peace comes with a price. Jensen's Christmas decor includes a wreath styled as a peace sign and that's got her neighbours in Pagosa Springs, Colorado up in arms.
The Loma Linda Homeowners' Association has told Jensen to remove the wreath or face fines of $25 a day. Apparently the peace symbol offends some residents who have children in Iraq and feel the wreath is an anti-war protest. Others complain the wreath is satanic.
The President of the Homeowners' Association, Bob Kearns, ordered the architectural control committee to direct Jensen to take down the wreath. When they refused, Kearns simply fired them. So far Jensen is digging in her heels.
