Citizens come to aid of elderly woman jailed for sewage bill.

In the continuing story of Dolores Pennline, an elderly woman jailed for not paying her sewage bill (see previous posts,) the Observer-Reporter reports that donations from across the nation have been coming in to pay her fines. I was happy to see this article as it validates my belief that the majority of persons in this country are hard working, sensible folks who don't need a law degree to know that one of their fellow citizens is getting screwed by the government. In other positive news regarding this matter, Ms. Pennline's attorney is now working on a civil rights appeal and he claims that additional persons who were treated the same way have come forward to be heard. I sincerely hope that those responsible for this travesty are called to account.
