Neighborly fence care

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Christine Gelley, Agriculture and Natural Resources Educator, OSU Extension Noble CountyFence care can make tempers flare between neighbors. Typically, when neighbors have similar goals, an agreeable strategy for fence maintenance can be worked out easily. When land use pursuits differ, there is a higher likelihood for conflict.One of Ohio’s oldest rural laws is built around the care of partition fence. Ohio R.C. Chapter 971 defines a partition fence or “line fence” as a fence placed on the division line between two adjacent properties. In 2008, the law was updated to state “Partition fence includes a fence that has been considered a division line between two such properties even though a subsequent land survey indicates that the fence is not located directly on the division line.”If both neighbors utilize the fence for similar purposes then the responsibilities are typically split evenly, which includes keeping the fence line clear of brush, briers, thistle and weeds within four feet of the fence.Historically, in all cases, the responsibility of maintaining the fence fell on both landowners equally, but revisions made in 2008 determined that the responsibility of existing (prior to 2008) fence can be divided more fairly by considering six factors:The topography of the property where the fence is or will be located.The presence of streams, creeks, rivers or other bodies of water on the property.The presences of trees, vines or other vegetation on the property.The level of risk of trespassers on either property due to the population density surrounding the property or the recreational use of adjoining properties.The importance of marking division lines between the properties.The number and type of livestock that each landowner may contain with the fence.If new fence is constructed, the responsibilities are different than in decades past. By definition, a “new” line fence is one constructed where a partition fence has never existed. In this case, the construction and maintenance responsibility are wholly the initiating landowner’s responsibility, unless the neighbor uses the fence for livestock containment within 30 years of construction. In that case, the landowner who built the fence could seek reimbursement from their neighbor by filing an affidavit with the county recorder.To be compliant with state law, a new partition fence containing livestock must meet the standards of “preferred partition fence.” The following are considered preferred:A woven wire fence of either standard or high tensile wire and topped with one or two strands of barbed wire that is at least 48 inches from the ground.A nonelectric high tensile fence with at least seven strands of wire constructed in accordance with NRCS standards.A barbed wire, electric or live fence to which the adjoining landowners agree, in writing.Neighbors who wish to construct new fence must be granted ten feet on the adjoining property to perform construction and maintenance. However, the fence builder is liable for damages caused by the entry onto the adjoining property, including damages to crops.Alternative landowner agreements are tools that can allow neighbors to create their own fence line agreements that alter how state law applies in their situation. In order to be considered valid and binding the agreement must:Be in writing.Include a description of the land where the fence is located.Include a description of the purpose and use of the fence.Be filed with the county recorder in the county where the land is located.If a dispute regarding partition fence cannot be resolved between neighbors, there are two ways to proceed through resolution. A complaint may be filed with the board of township trustees or directly in the court of common pleas. Working through a resolution in these manners can be lengthy and complicated. Details on appropriate procedures for filing a complaint can be found in R.C. 971.09.By far, the easiest way to decide on a plan for fence care is communicating with your neighbor. Openly stating your intentions and wishes in a courteous and polite manner with each other is best. Once you have reached an agreement, seal it with a handshake, but also, put it in writing and file it appropriately.The information communicated in this article is gathered from Ohio Revised Code Chapter 971 and OSU Extension’s Fence Law Factsheet by Peggy Hall, which can be accessed online at: http://go.osu.edu/aglawlinefence.last_img read more

Temple ‘purified’ after woman MLA’s visit

first_imgA temple and ashram in Uttar Pradesh’s Hamirpur district were “purified” and the idols in it cleansed with Ganga-water after a BJP woman MLA visited it.Local tradition bars women from entering the Dhurm Rishi temple. According to locals, Manisha Anuragi, a legislator from the reserved seat Rath, had visited the village Muskura Khurd on July 12 to attend a school function in her constituency. She also offered prayers at the local temple.Following her visit, the village residents called for a meeting, where they decided that the premises of the ashram would have to be “purified.” The idols were sent to Allahabad to get “purified” with the waters of the Sangam.“How could she be allowed to enter the temple. No woman has ever gone there,” a villager told journalists. The villagers believe that if a woman enters the temple, a natural calamity would befall them. They claimed that after the visit, they have stopped getting rainfall.Ms. Anuragi said she was hurt by the incident, calling it an “insult” to women.“There is no ban on women from entering any temple. There should not be any discrimination on the basis of gender,” said the first-time MLA.last_img read more

Assam BJP leader praises JNU poll winner, quits party

first_imgA BJP leader in Assam has quit his post in the party’s Information Technology and Social Media department after his praise for a Leftist woman from Assam, who won in the Jawaharlal Nehru Students’ Union polls, drew criticism.In a letter to Assam BJP president Ranjeet Kumar Dass on Tuesday, Suranjan Dutta said he was resigning from the post of co-convenor of the party’s social media wing for causing “hurt” to party workers for praising the election of Srijani Bhaswa Mahanta as a councillor for the university’s School of International Studies.Ms. Mahanta, who represented the Students’ Federation of India (SFI), is the daughter of Assam’s Additional Director General of Police Bhaskar Jyoti Manahta.

I have admitted my moral responsibility for that Facebook post and hence, asking for apology from everyone,” he wrote in his resignation letter.Assam BJP’s general secretary Dilip Saikia accepted Mr. Dutta’s resignation letter.last_img read more

Christopher Tufton, who addressed the students, urged them to make wise choices as it relates to their health.He lamented that there is a growing prevalence of physical inactivity among the youth.“Youngsters today are more interested in engaging with their electronic devices, and so they are living a more sedentary lifestyle than their predecessors,” he pointed out.Dr. Tufton encouraged the students to take the information garnered back to their homes and communities.He said they should encourage those they care about to practise a healthy lifestyle, including adopting good eating habits and getting annual check-ups.Executive Director of the JCS, Yulit Gordon, for her part, charged the young people in attendance to be responsible in their decision-making as it relates to their well-being, and avoid the dangerous practice of tobacco smoking.She indicated that tobacco-related illnesses globally have severely impacted healthcare systems, and a number of countries, including Jamaica, have moved to implement tobacco regulations to minimise the overall impact of tobacco use.Ms. Gordon further appealed to those who may have already begun using tobacco to take advantage of a cessation programme that is available through the JCS and the National Council on Drug Abuse (NCDA).
