Real Neighborly


Children can still play outside in Pinehurst, North Carolina, so long as their neighbors can't hear them after 8:30 p.m. The town has banned any recreational activities that neighbors might hear after 8:30 in the summer, 7 p.m. in the winter. The new rule came after one family complained about late night basketball games at a neighbor's house. But city residents who weren't involved in that dispute aren't happy about the new rule. We're being punished for two neighbors who can't get along," said Jamie Baddour.
