Q. My neighbors have a whole bunch of trash out in the back yard and out in the front yard along the side of their house and it has gotten to the point that it is unbearable to smell. Is there a city ordinance about having that much trash in your yard or can we do something about the smell? A.

She said Storm would survey the site to determine whether the situation violated city codes. If there is a violation, she said, the city would give the owner or occupant a deadline for cleaning up the mess. If the owner or occupant fails to rectify the situation, the city will clean up the trash at the owner or occupant’s expense.

Q: Earlier this summer the J-W had a poll of favorite comics. I must have been on vacation when the results came out. Could you rerun the top five? A: Calvin and Hobbes easily outpolled the other J-W comics in our readership survey. Calvin garnered 1,178 “thumbs up” votes while only registering 42 “thumbs down” votes. “The Far Side” came in second with 908 thumbs up and a mere 25 thumbs down. In third place was “For Better Or For Worse” with 856 up and 143 down. In fourth place was “Outland” with 768 up and 272 down. Rounding out the top five was “Doonesbury” with 677 thumbs up and 113 thumbs down. The J-W used the results of the poll to reformat the Sunday comics. But the J-W is still interested in your comics opinions. We’re running daily test strips on the third page of the classified section, the results of which will be used when we consider changes to the daily comics page.
