Not a dream in Ivins

10 May 2019 | : blog


I had a dream that I did lose the appeal in an actual court room and when outside
of the court room a lady asked me why I was fighting it.
My attorney even said I was technically guilty.
My response started just to her and then to another lady and then to a whole  crowd with nothing but positive response.

My response:
It’s the principle of the matter.
They have been harassing me, singling me out.
Another lady remarked about the developer.
Yes, he and his buddies at the zoning department, each time he barks, they jump.
At first using drone obtained photos, which is illegal.
So then they used county tax assessor aerial photos that can be zoomed in to see
a mole on your face.
If drone photos taken under 450 feet are illegal, then aerial photos that can zoom in are illegal.   The crowd agreed.

Then what is the purpose of fences?
There is none.
The only way the zoning guys saw and complained is that they basically looked
through knot holes and used the aerial photos.
And my acreage is not residential but agricultural of 3.63 acres.
Can’t park RVs unless a primary residence is there.
But prior to the 2008 ordinance, RVs*, unless registered with DMV, were illegal to
be parked at a residence.

(Under penalty of fines of $25 daily, I was forced to move my motor home to my acreage 2 months prior to the ordinance.)
For 9 years and 11 months none of this was an issue until
the developer barked.
(I had a construction trailer, a green house, several storage trailers, and several
trailers being demolished on my acreage.)
Why did the judge rule against you? was asked me.
That’s what they do; they never intend to support the defendant, guilty is all they
ever want to say.
Then the court recess was over.

This is not a dream In Ivins.

Yesterday,  a Judge Ryan Harris of the Utah Appeals Court,  ruled that nothing
illegal was done by the AL* court or District Court or the ALJ* or District Judge.

I am guilty.

Reminds me of a play I directed in  the early 1970s.

part of a song from the play went like this:

“Guilty, Guilty,  that’s all we ever say

Guilty, Guilty,  that’s how we get our pay

All it takes is a cap and a gown”
(Remember that it was legal in Germany to report and turn in Jews and legal for the government to imprison and kill Jews.)

*ALJ means Administrative Law Judge.
*.Types of RVs include motorhomes, campervans, caravans (also known as travel trailers and camper trailers), fifth-wheel trailers, popup campers and truck campers.
Typical amenities of an RV include a kitchen, a bathroom, and one or more sleeping facilities. RVs can range from the utilitarian — containing only sleeping quarters and basic cooking facilities — to the luxurious, with features like air conditioning (AC), water heaters, televisions and satellite receptors, and quartz countertops, for example.

RVs can either be trailers (which are towed behind motor vehicles) or self-motorized. Most RVs are single-deck; however, double-deck RVs also exist. To allow a more compact size while in transit, larger RVs often have expandable sides or canopies.

Quick Tips, Guides & DMV BasicsWhat Qualifies as an RV or Motorhome?
What Qualifies as an RV or Motorhome?
By: Kathy Teel July 21, 2012
The term “motor home” is often used interchangeably with “RV.” “Motor home,” however, is an informal phrase, used to describe a variety of recreational vehicles, while “recreational vehicle” (or RV) is a technical and legal term. Understanding which kind of RV or motorhome you have will help you with RV registration.

In asking which vehicles qualify as RVs or motor homes during the registration process, it’s easiest to remember that the U.S. Department of Transportation categorizes RVs by class.

Class A Recreational Vehicles

Class A recreational vehicles are motor homes, regardless of the type of chassis beneath them and whether or not the vehicle contains “slide-outs” (additional living spaces that slide out when the vehicle is stopped for camping). Class A also includes commercial passenger and school buses that are converted into RVs (these are often the largest mobile homes available).

Class A RVs are generally luxurious mobile homes with a solid body, a panoramic front window, berths that convert from living room or dinette areas, and bathroom facilities.

Class B Recreational Vehicles

Class B recreational vehicles are campervans. Campervans are conventional vans with raised roofs (either “pop up” or “fixed”). They often have small kitchens with refrigerators and gas grills.

Larger models may have a water heater, heat and air conditioning, a portable toilet, or an internal shower. (Smaller models usually have a portable toilet and an external shower, which can be used with an awning to ensure privacy.)

Class C Recreational Vehicles

Unlike a Class A mobile home, which is built on a single chassis, a Class C vehicle is attached to a truck and hauled behind. Class C RVs are characterized by a distinctive alcove which fits over the truck cab, providing either a double berth for sleeping or, sometimes, an “entertainment” section, with a TV and video games.

Other Recreational Vehicle Types

In addition to the three classes of RVs, there are also other types of recreational vehicles or motorhomes:

Truck Campers: Similar to the C-class vehicles described above, these are smaller RVs, carried in the beds of pickup truck.
Pop-up Campers: Collapsible campers with pull-out berths and tent walls, towed in a compact unit behind a vehicle.
Travel Trailers (sometimes called “caravans”): Non-collapsible, light-weight trailers with simple amenities, towed behind a vehicle.

None of the trailers on my acreage had “… amenities of an RV include a kitchen, a bathroom, and one or more sleeping facilities. “
