A woman is going head to head with her homeowner's association after complaints were filed over her “inappropriate” Halloween decorations that show skeletons dancing on poles. Angela Nava lives in a community in Richmond, Texas. She received a letter on Sunday saying she has thirty days to remove the decorations. The letter said the decorations are “offensively positioned.” “It's modeled after an adult club,” she said. “We just really had a good time changing the scene up every night. Every night, we change the positions of the skeletons, and it's really been just a great creative outlet for me.” Nava said the idea came up during the early stages of the pandemic. She said since Halloween is this weekend, and falls before the HOA's deadline, she's going to leave her decorations in her yard. (https://abc13.co/2TAb21c)

are civic duties and there are motherly responsibilities – and one
pregnant Florida woman fulfilled both Tuesday as she stopped to vote
on her way to the hospital to give birth. She had already gone into
labor by the time she arrived at the Orange County Supervisor of
Elections Office in Orlando last Tuesday. Poll worker Karen Brinceno
Gonzalez told Fox 35 that the woman had asked her husband to stop and
vote on their way to the hospital. The wife reportedly waited in the
car as her husband went inside, waited in line, and asked for poll
workers to help his wife vote early. Gonzalez went out to the car,
where she reportedly found the pregnant woman breathing heavily. She
checked her ID, handed her a mail-in ballot and told her to send it
in by 7:00 p.m. on November 3rd. “She said, ‘No! No! No! I need
to fill it out right now,’” Gonzalez told Fox 35. “So, she
filled it out. I gave her an 'I VOTED' sticker, and she was off to
the hospital.” Eileen Deliz, another early voting clerk, told the
Orlando Sentinel that it was a unique event for poll workers.
