Lacey's Spring new Hole-In-The-Wall?

The Hole-In-The-Wall was a place in Wyoming where outlaws went to elude the law during the late 1800s and early 1900s.

It was a fertile valley a day's ride from civilization. A narrow trail over the canyon wall was the only way into the valley from the east. Even the lawmen left those in The Hole-In-The-Wall alone.

The Hole came to mind this week after an Athens man threatened to put his washing machine on his porch to protest citations for litter and a junked vehicle. He'd fit right in with a lot of people in Lacey's Spring, where some residents say what they have in their yard is their business.

Perhaps, the County Commission could tout Lacey's Spring as a 21st century Hole-In-The-Wall for people who choose junk and litter as a lifestyle.

Decatur has some residents who would be at home in Lacey's Spring, too, including public officials who ignore the problem.
