NEWPORT CITY – Writing on the sidewalks has gotten three area residents in trouble with the city.
Diane Peel and Tom Farrow of Newport City and Jack Rogers of Irasburg were ticketed for writing in chalk between Second Street and Central Street. The three plan to fight the tickets in court.
After the group finished their project, Peel walked home, got into her car and passed by where the group had been 15-minutes earlier. There she saw a police officer taking pictures but she did not stop to question why. An hour later, Peel passed by again and the artwork was gone.
