Osborns Lose AGAIN!

From the Eagle Tribune;

March 31, 2011
Atkinson couple loses another case

By Cara Hogan chogan@eagletribune.com The Eagle Tribune Thu Mar 31, 2011, 12:13 AM EDT

ATKINSON — Margaret and Daniel Osborn just can't seem to win.

Earlier this month, they lost a civil lawsuit brought by their neighbor, Carol Davis, costing them more than $25,000 in damages.

Just a few months ago, in December, the Osborns lost a related case brought by the town of Atkinson, which cost them $122,000. In total, recent court actions have cost the Osborns more than $147,000, plus legal fees.

In 2008, the town issued the Osborns a building permit for their home, but that came with a requirement to install a sprinkler system because the property was not accessible by fire trucks or other emergency vehicles.

Instead, the Osborns built a driveway connecting their property to Chase Island Road, hoping that would allow them to qualify for an occupancy permit.

But they cut down trees and built the driveway across land owned by Davis, who lives at 6 Chase Island Road.

"The respondents acted without right or authority when they entered upon Davis' land, cut trees and created a new driveway," Rockingham Superior Court Judge John Lewis wrote in the ruling in the case brought by Davis.

"Although the court finds that they did not do this with a malicious or hostile intent, they acted to use the property at issue for their own benefit, to deal in particular with access concerns raised by local authorities, and acted as well expressly in the face of Davis' opposition."

Lewis awarded Davis $25,436 in damages for emotional distress and for the cost of removing asphalt and replanting trees.

Attorney Michael Bedard represented Carol Davis and said the case should never have gotten this far.

"(The Osborns) were wrong all around," Bedard said. "It seems that it would have been a lot easier from the beginning to install the sprinkler system, get this occupancy permit and go on with their lives."

Bedard said the Osborns didn't have the right to build through Davis' property. He said they should have stopped when Davis first approached them and told them it was her land.

"Instead of going to an attorney and getting their advice, after Mrs. Davis had asked her to stop the clearing, they kept going," he said.

"It would have cost them no money. Instead, they went through a year, maybe more, of litigation. They could have saved a lot of money just being a little more prudent."

Bedard said the ruling also orders the Osborns to stop using the right of way immediately.

"That was my client's main concern," he said. "The new road was maybe 75 yards away from her house. She testified that she could see it from her window."

Atkinson Town Administrator Philip Smith said he had no comment on the case because it was a civil matter that did not involve the town.

Bernard Campbell represented the Osborns and also had no comment on the case. The Osborns can appeal the decision.

This is the third time the Osborn's have thumbed their nose at Town officials and surrounding neighbors, while doing their building projects.

Looks like the third time was a charm for townspeople.

Now perhaps the OSBORNS will crawl back under the rock with the rest of the snakes.


Couldn't happen to better people, right Maggie?

Anonymous said...

Dont think fine was enough, sounds like it would cost more than that to replace Davis land to its original state. Hopefully Davis can appeal the monetary amount, it probably cost her more than that just to fight this case. I doubt Osborns will give in, and do what is needed. It is not in their nature, unfortunately they can't see past their humility, that they will bankrupt themselves over an easy fix, and just move on from all this and learn from their mistakes.

Not enough justice for Mrs. Davis. I hope she appeals the award.

25,000 sounds about right to me. land is still in same place. just some dirt trees was moved around.

Anonymous said...

ZBA didn't do their job. They issued a variance when they shouldn't have which caused the Osborns to think and act as if they could do what they did.

Noone is debating they went too far. BUT if our ZBA didn't ask for certified copies of deeds, plot plans, septic designs, etc, and then actually read them and obtained advice from legal counsel I'm guessing this is far from over. Registry of Deeds is online so anyone can look up and verify information easily.

The entire mess never shoulda happened.

Anonymous said...

I doubt $25k would reimburse her for restoring the area, removing the road, and paying for the legal bills. Not fair at all.

tim dziechowski said...

The ZBA did seek the advice of town counsel before hearing the variance request. Sumner told them the driveway/ROW was a civil matter which they should not get involved in.

I was approached back around Thanksgiving with questions about the value of the trees. I have posted before on one of these Osborn threads that you can't replace even a single large tree for less than $5K. The Osborns had their contractor cut down dozens. I spoke with some foresters who said that they as well as members of the American Society of Consulting Arborists could use the time-lapse photography in Google Earth to prove what was there before. I am surprised that Carol's lawyer didn't have an expert witness testify as to tree value. What was removed is worth at least four times what the court awarded.

Anonymous said...

$25,000 what a joke. That won't cover the cost of the damage that the Osborns caused the land. They probably made money selling the trees & the rock they had blasted to selfishly create an illegal driveway. I say the driveway should be torn up and deposited in the Osborns driveway since they paid for the ashpalt. Get a work crew & I'll be there.

Anonymous said...

And when the Osborns cry to the town that the asphalt was deposited in their driveway...just tell the town IT'S A CIVIL MATTER, STAY OUT OF IT.

Anonymous said...

If you cut down someone else trees under the law you allowed a stump tax fee thats it. But you must be able to verify each tree and size which Mrs Davis did not.

A wrong driveway is a wrong driveway. judge could think over his low bucks and make the land and trees put with enough money to get it done right.

Lookin at that driveway makes me sick to see it, Needs to be taken out cause it's a disgusting hole in the ladys land. Osborns trespass on my land? Better stay the hell-0 off. I'm putting up no trespassing signs all over my land. and you should so no neighber builds on your land. Stone walls good too.

The judge says osborns never ripped out the land cause they was viscous mean malicious. People in town know whats goin on. Just what good people osbornes really is. Right on judge. You sure got your facts straight!!!!

Anonymous said...

Well, here we go again. Key phrase from the judge was "the court finds that they did not do this with a malicious or hostile intent". But legally they were wrong, they're paying the equivalent of a second home in damages between the two cases and those of you who want to hate the family feel vindicated. Are you going to continue kicking the family to the curb or act like the good people you profess to be?

Anonymous said...

The court may have mistakenly decided the Osborns "that they did not do this with a malicious or hostile intent". But anyone who has had dealings with Maggie knows her to be a narcissistic manipulative witch who will walk over anyone who gets in her way of taking whatever she wants. She is pure evil. So yes, I would continue kick this family down until all monies have been paid to the town & the Davis family, the illegally built driveway is demolished & returned to a natural state, the sprinkler system it installed, and the eyesore of a structure on the shoreline is demolished. Then & only then will the community & town feel vindicated.

Anonymous said...

People aren't kicking Osborn's to the curb, all they are asking is that they follow the rules, like everyone else has to. They can still make their wrongs right, even though it will be costly. Was avoiding sprinklers worth more than 147,000 dollars when they could have spent 5000 or more? If they actually want to live there without anymore accusations, then go back to the Town and pay the bills, and follow the rules.

Anonymous said...

Not only should the Osborns be kicked down the road, they both should be put in JAIL along with the Town officals that allowed the Osborns to get to this point.

The town allowed this to happen through the zoning laws that allowed this to happen. Certain Town officials should go to jail in their support of the Osborns.

Your comments about Maggie are completely misguided and only point out the hatred and evil in your own twisted mind. What a despicable thing to write! So the family made a series of mistakes, largely around trusting people at their word. They're paying for that in time, money and having their names dragged through the paper and in venom pools like this blog. EVERYTHING they do outside of this situation demonstrates how warm, positive and genuine they are to the rest of the world. If you aren't getting the warm and fuzzies maybe it's because you're spewing rage and contempt at them all the time? We all choose how we react to the world around us, and your choice is ugly.

School principals always enjoy the playground little troublemaker telling them they are innocent and never did nothing to nobody, "My shoe got up his bum but my foot wasn't in it. He put it there!" After the guilty child exits they all have a good laugh at the show put on for them by the little darling."

Later in life, it's the judge who listens to the adult liar proclaiming their innocense and how they are the victim. "I am a wonderful, wonderful person your honor. That lady victimized herself stepping in front of my car jaywalking! Wasn't me! I never did nothing to nobody. She victimized me, your honor! And who you going to believe, your honor, ME or that lying video they took when I refused the breath analyzer test?"

Judges hear these lies day in and day out from slick practiced liars so often they don't laugh. A judge's eyes do get a little squinty when delivering the guilty verdict and sentence.

In fact, a good judge finds liars boring. So don't lie in court. Show some integrity.

Just my view from the courthouse.

You can go to ZBA for a varince on your property. Which the Osborns did. They assumed they had right to build a driveway where they did. The driveway was never part of the varince.

Now if you chose to build on your neighbors property thats your choice. But it becomes a civil matter not a ZBA matter

Anonymous said...

Not if the ZBA issued the variance and allowed the building inspector to issue the permit, knowing the builder didn't own the land he was building on. The town forced a civil action to be filed because they are corrupt. They wanted that big nice house for tax purposes and didn’t care that Carol Davis would have to pay to pick up their mess. Just another reason why taxpayers shouldn’t vote to give these guys any more power. In fact, if town officials won’t protect our property rights, they should have that power taken away from them.

They issued a permit for house land owned by the Osborn. They didnt issue a permit for a driveway. The Osborn assumed the right to build the driveway there. They have frontage on a town road. No conspiracy theory here. Get over it.

Anonymous said...

Town issued a driveway permit, and later withdrew it when it was found out Osborn's didn't own the land. Town was prewarned Osborn's didn't own the land needed to build a bigger house, and issued permit anyway. Town won't do their job, town shouldn't have any say in our private property rights.

the permit was for access to osborn lot. where the osborns put it was thier own problem.

Hey April 2, 2011 8:54 AM:
The family purposely made these mistakes. When the Davis family first tried to stop the Osborns from destroying the land, the Osborns should have ceased what they were doing until the situation was resolved. But NO, the Osborns continued to cut trees, regrade the land from approx 23% to 13%, pave property they did not own. Now the Davis family is stuck with ruined land that a mere $25,000 can not restore. Maggie new exactly what she was doing. She thumbed her nose at the system. She has shown no remorse. If she displays another face to the rest of the town: Town hall, country club set, she is showing you a false side. She is a mean spiteful woman who has demonstrated again, and again her lack of regard for playing by the rules of society.
I am not gloating that the Osborns lost. No, I am rejoycing that the people the Osborns have wronged have finally won.
Also series of mistakes goes way back: 1. building an addition on their island without a permit or DES approval. 2. Trying to build too close to the lake at the 1st new house they built, then having to correct that issue. 3. Trying to have variances granted to them for their recent home eliminated. 4. Building on the Davis land.
The list goes on. One infraction, maybe it's a mistake. But to continue to defy the system. That shows a clear lack of regard for the system. Hence the narcissistic manipulative witch label.

If town officials would simply obey the laws instead of take liberties with them, ignore them, bend them, break them, apply them unequally to all citizens, then they will performing their sworn duty.

There is this way of operating outside the law where town officials think they actually MAKE the laws... that has earned Atkinson the reputation of one of the two most troubled towns in the state of New Hampshire.

When public officials lie or decieve about breaking the law this compounds the damage to the honor of the town.

The legal system in NH itself can exercise greater probity when it comes to upholding the standards of their own profession. If they did they would clamp down on Atkinson over the myriad of complaints filled by honest citizens over the last 30 years.

Just a legal opinion.

You are exactly right! But, how do we find the people that agree to help us.
The State of New Hampshire has been doing just fine for many years. If we can have the caliber of Selectmen that we can trust to follow the rules.
They swear this oath of office when they enter this important job.

Write to any of the offices at State level that you can think of,that might help us, and the pen may be mightier than the sword so I've been told.

What rules are the current slate of selectman breaking? There was complaints that they weren't doing anything about the Osborn's, but yet they went after Mason. Now we see that the Osborn's have lost BIG to the town. If anyone doesn't think a 100K plus fine isn't big, please share your wealth with the rest of us. The charges were that the selectman weren't even applying the rules. It looks to me that they've held the Osborn's accountable. So, what, exactly, are the selectman falling down on?

Our Selectmen could talk to DES about the Osbornes removing their building junk from Big Island Pond? You could make a phone call and wake up DES and get em to follow through with their ruling. Is that too much to ask to protect the lake? Maybe Big Island Pond Association can talk to the Selectmen cause this rule needs to be enforced by the DES.

Will someone do something, PLEASE?

In my opinion.

Selectmen can't get involved with the pond or people who use it because it is a civil matter between the Osborns and the pond.

So you are saying our selectmen can only get involved with taking our rights away, but NOT to protect our rights within the Town?

Best argument I've heard for getting rid of "Double Talking" selectmen that honest citizens can't afford. They don’t deserve our turst.

The ideal of the system SOUNDS GOOD, but put crooks into office and there goes the system.

That is the problem with this Town. Too many crooks in office and not enough honest people to expose them. That our friends is the reason crooked politicians feel they will never be caught.

The nation is rallying to change this notion, and now the taxpayers of Atkinson need to do the same.

If you think the selectmen are engaged in a cover up or aren't abiding by the RSA's, then show what RSA that they've broken and contact the state attorney general so charges can be pressed. Of course, you won't because they haven't broken any RSA's in this matter. You complain when the selectmen over step their bounds, but yet you want them to get involved in a matter in which they have no jurisdiction. Do you realize how deranged some of you folks are? Also, it's so nice to see all you 'caring' people sending the Childs your condolences. Fred and his family have far more important things to deal with than your deranged points of view.

Then apologize to the person you say needs mental health services. You are way out of line. You didn't do your homework! Many people want justice and all Atkinson residents to be treated the same under the rules and laws by town officials. That and that they protect the rights of citizens from others who would injure them. Is that so crazy? The Davis family is a good example of a family that was not protected by Atkinson Town Officials and it is shameful.

It is wrongs to citizens for decades that have caused a revolt against this oppression. We are all imperfect but some have more courage and had the decency to bring forward the truth.

Dear Maggie,

I understand your pain but you have to take responsibility for what you did and make it right. you have to give up making yourself right and others wrong.

Otherwise, you just boycott enjoying your life and that is a terrible price to pay.

Go to Mrs Davis and her family and admit what you did in front of them and you were wrong to do it. Plead for forgiveness from the Davis family from the bottom of your heart Then settle up with them and the town.

It is a chance to save yourself for yourself. And gain forgiveness from all townspeople and your neighbors. Forgiveness is a possibility, but you must make it so.

That in and of itself is wrong. Don't you agree?

It's not a civil matter. The Osborns have to remove the junk house at the waters edge because that was part of the variance granted to them to build their house in the 1st place. They can not get their certificate of occupancy until the entire variance is granted.

Mrs. Osborn was an Atkinson town official and the BOS must pay her attorney fees. If Osborns sue, the BOS is obligated to treat all former town officials the same.

If they pay for one former town official to sue another town resident they must pick up the Osborn legal bills for their legal battles against town residents.

And the legal fees must be paid by taxpayer dollars, in the name of fairness.

So go get em Maggs, you qualify for taxpayer dollars. Go get that pond scum. And don't worry about those pesky fines. You have wiggle room there.

One long timer with a lot of power in this town of Atkinson set the example a long time ago that the rules are only "guidelines" instead of to be obeyed exactly. Well heck, that's how it used to be done in the olden days when things were easy and even bankers made a loan with just a handshake because he knew you and your family from way back. And what are friends for but to get you out of a jan best they could.

Times have changed. The town of Atkinson can't do business that way any more and not follow the rules as written or make exceptions to enforcing the law, or do favors, just because they know you and your family and your good people.

It is 2011 not 1950. Time to change how the rule of law is applied and no favors cause you just want to help them out.

Bankers today don't do business on a promise and a handshake either. (But they didn't follow current banking lawn causing the housing bubble and bankrupted the nation.)

The lazy days of doing special favors for friends and coworkers are gone by now in Atkinson and it is time for our officials and employees to obey and protect and do their sworn duty. It's time.

Only my opinion. Not a word of truth in it.

Mrs Danile Osborn was not a town official when she started the proceedings over her new McMansion. So the town is not obligated to pay her leagal bills. She is. In addition she should be paying the legal bills for the Davis family. She has lost that case but only received a slight slap from the court system for all the damage & ill will she has caused. I can only hope, that someday someone will screw her the way she screws everyone in town.

Doesn't matter when the Osborns started to build a home. That's not the point. Mrs.Osborn was a town official, member ZBA and that's all that counts. BOS can fund the Osborn private legal expenses as they do for others. It's up to the BOS and they can spend taxpayer dollars on private legal expenses however they darn well please. it's their money to spend.

The BOS has already paid the private legal expenses for other ex-town officials in court. Why should the Osborns be denied the same taxpayer dollars? Osborns should go to the BOS and demand their money. Because this wonderful warm and fuzzy family has the right to taxpayer dollars for all they have done for the town. Osborns defend the town constantly from whackjobs here. Where is the Osborn payback? They earned it.

BOS. Do something to help out this loyal wonderful family. Mrs. Osborn deserves your favors for all the good work she did for herself and others, serving the town as an Atkinson town official.

Give Carol Davis a rest by fixing her land. Send Teddy over to take out the asphalt driveway at town expense. It's a town caused problem in my opinion.

Town should accept the road from Mrs. Davis, remove it sq.footage from her tax card. I drive by there daily. The road is needed. Mrs. Davis 10 cars in her drive for her house alone. Kids, dogs , toys. I understand she doesn't like what the Osborn's have done and they should pay. But if you take the blog influence out, the emotion. Seems that Mrs. Davis could make a good deal for the future and safety of her family and property. I heard another neighbor has rights to the drive. What do they think?

The bloggers have made this situation worse. Seems like there could be a better outcome for poor Mrs. Davis.

That's nice, have the town take over the driveway from Mrs Davis, reduce her property, reduce her taxes, then what do you think open it up for the Osborn's?. Nice try Osbornes. Its her business if she wants to put 10 cars and toys and grandbabies on her property. It's her choice not to sell it and restore it back to it's previous state. It's her choice, and it was always her land that you tried to take away. That would be the easy way out for you, and for the Town. Of course, money does talk, Osborn's, you or the Town would have to offer a heck of alot of money for it to be worth it, since it's her choice.

What the heck kind of drugs are you on? The Town is supposed to pick up Osborn's legal fee's? Should they pick up Davis' fees too? Have the taxpayer's pay for stealing someone's land?

Seems the judge may have made problems by not awarding mrs Davis enough to put her land back and pay her attorney. If Davis wants her land put back the judge could reconsider and award the money to do it. He did proclaim Osborns would have to return the land to it's pristine condition. Now is the time to reconsider the financial award because it isn't enough.

Then again the town could step in and restore the land at town cost as there are mistakes that wouldn't have been made in any other town.

25000 dollars should be just for emotional stress, dont have any idea what it cost to bring land back to original state or close to it, but there should be an appeal for more money after figures come in, inclusive of attorney's fee's. Stinks that Davis would have to continue a legal fight, but I wouldn't settle for it either.

Anonymous said...

Again Mrs. Davis could not prove what was there. No tree sizes type. I have said it before you only get a stump tax plus a little extra if you cut someone else trees. 25000 sounds reasonable to me. This blog wanted Mrs. Davis to get one million dollars. Which is unreasonable. She would have been better off to sell the Osborn’s the land in question. She could have got around 35000 or 40000 dollars.

But when your brain is run by your wallet and not logic this is what happens.

Anonymous said...

Some people make money selling off land, and others like Mrs Davis chose not to, it was her option, dont even know if she was ever even offered anything for it in the first place. 25000 doesn't cover dirt, boulders, fill, and trees, along with the contractor costs for releveling the drivewa and and the right of way which was also dug out. I drive by there and it is a hugh hole with sides as deep as guessing 10 feet high walls of dirt, it would be costly to try to get it back to the same way it was before, someone must have pictures, people have lived in this area with families over time.

Ms Davis could not sell the land to Osborns since it would then make her lot nonconforming in size. She did not have this option. If she could, she probably would have done so.
And whether she had an option or not, does not give someone else the right to take her land illegally.
I like the idea someone put forth earlier: get a volunteer work crew to crack up & remove the asphalt, then give the asphalt back to the Osborns. Let them pay to have it trucked away.

Yes but if she sold the Osborns the land in question that would reduce her lot to a non conforming lot of less than an acre, which she then would have trouble selling, with TWO ROW's through it. And the Osborns never offered to buy the ROW, claiming that they OWNED it from the start, even though they could produce no document granting them ownership.

Lots of people have been driving thru and by her property for years. File a bunch of affidavits with the appeal and ask for a higher judgement. Witnesses can attest to the size and number of trees removed.

The nuts want it all for themselves and not for the majority and it results in constant belittlement of the majority bloggers. Their attempts of the towns political control is the problem . But then, silent or not on this site, they continue to be selfish and unrelenting. I ask this question-- would you use the death of any person to have a blog site destroyed? I'd have to venture a guess and say it is a matter of conscience and a failure of respectful family and religion up bringing that is the cause for their actions. Most in town go to their houses of worship but they aren't really listening to what is being said from the pulpit.

It is particularly fascinating the very weird non-public meeting our current selectmen had in their big black chairs with only two members of the conflict on interest committee.

(They were FORCED to do it to AVERT a disasterous ethical tsunami from hitting the town!)

Is that going by the rules? No. It is wrong because there was no quorum of CIC members but even worse, the other members had no clue it was going to happen or what it was about. The BOS violated the town ethics committee? Must of been one HELL of a "civil matter" to do THAT!

Then there all the right to know information not forked over by the town to the CIC for over a year AND COUNTING! Should be 5 days according to the law. A year? And the CIC is still ignored and left twisting in the wind waiting for legal RTK info?

There is nothing gone wrong in this town of Atkinson. The BOS does everything POSSIBLE to enforce the rules and the laws swiftly and make sure their employees do the same. And that's the truth.

"Hey Carol darling,

Say you remember that driveway that I was told I could build over there? Well, I'm so very sorry the town made those bad, bad mistakes to you. They misled us both, you know. They took down your trees, because of their big mistakes. It wasn't me. It was them. But tell you what, if you give me the driveway I'll sponsor your family to a years membership at my golf club. Wait a minute, wait a minute, thats not going to work. We can't really socialize with your kibs....but I will use my influence to get you the right to use the driveway at my country club! And that's something!

You know, Carol, Carol, I could even throw in a few bucks to maintain our new driveway and that will take a load off your back, pal.

So, ok, tomorrow I'll start using my wonderful new driveway again and you get to use the driveway at my golf club. Isn't that that wonderful, my dear?

Oh and we will just chalk that 25K that nutty judge mentioned to a little misunderstanding on his part. So he got a little confused. Happens all the time, you know.

So welcome to the country club. I mean, you know, the driveway. You just have to be very careful, Carol, to wash your car and clean up before you drive on it, OK? We can't take any chances, now can we?

Whew, I'm so glad we got this all worked out. I and i just have to tattle this little bit of news to you. His lordship, Mr Shay plans to contribute to your land by another little driveway just for him. Carol, Carol, you are going to love it as it will be diagonal so you can come on over and visit me with a lot fewer steps. We expect you once every Halloween eve and we will give you some chewies. But one thing, because of the third ROW and Mr Shays sensitivities, you really should speak to the grandkids because Mr Shay has this issue about little kids with dirty faces where he can see them. So it is best if you paid for a wall so his eyes are not offended. You understand how it is. One of the better people and all.

Oh and before I forget, I thank you for taking a bath before I came over today. I was liquefied at first, you know, the smells are so strong over here. But I brought my Hermes hankie just in case If you forgot. my nose. It is so sensitive now, after the surgery and.........."

I am sure your kids are getting tired of that game too. Leave the kids out of it, they dont know whats going on. I guess your just mad, that you have to rant about her grandchildren, and bring Mr Shay into it too, throw him under the bus. I am sure he appreciates it.

I don't follow all this like some in town. I have a question.

Who gave the Osborns permission to cut the curb to put in the driveway in the first place? Or is all this considered a mere formality now?

Sorry if this has been covered earlier.

OMG, another suit to remove the chain that the Davis property owns and was won in court ruled by a judge. Osbornes you make yourself so much more guilty. I know your plan, keep the courts going wasting more time, because you don't want to abide by the C/O which would mean the Town has to come in and inspect your property, and you know measure the dwelling's size. Take your losses and abide and do what is needed to live in your house legally, not illegally. This isn't setting a good example for your kids. They must be tortured not being able to enjoy their property, or have friends over like kids should. Wake up and smell the coffee instead of the alcohol running your thinking.

Its not right this family goes on living in the house with no permit but the town does nothing. OMG, it is scary to live here. I worry about the children. There is no fire protection for that house. I am scared because it is permitted and allowed by our police and fire department and the people in the house are in danger. For Christs sake!

Anonymous said...

Yes, obviously the parents are not worried about the safety of their children. The police and fire could only react if something went wrong, and the response time probably takes a little longer than other Towns. The Osbornes are just playing Russian Roulette with this fact. We just saw on TV a newer home killed two in the house. Just because it is a new home doesn't mean it's safe. Our Town was never able to check on it and give occupancy for that reason. So all I can say is Bless them with Safety for the children's sake, can't imagine why someone would take chances like this, it is beyond me.

Can those calling for the immediate physical ouster of the Osborns please cite:

1. The enabling laws that would support immediate physical eviction;

2. What enforcement agency would carry out this action?

People seem to believe the Selectmen went down this long legal road, prevailed, but are now just asleep at the wheel. I have more faith in them and presume they are continuing to follow due process until physical (if necessary) eviction is legally sanctioned.

But I'm guessing physical eviction cannot occur until all legal appeals have been exhausted. If they go in there now like Nazi storm troopers, the town might become open to a cross-complaint.
