Missouri law prohibits digging without permission of the land owner. One great example of a violation of this Missouri law is where the road association "trustees" were caught trying to dig up an old street sign on Carter Drive in House Springs, Missouri WITHOUT THE PERMISSION OF THE LAND OWNER. The violaters, when confronted by the land owner, claimed the sign was on an easement, so therefore he supposedly could dig. The land owner informed him that he was wrong, the easement is on the other side of the road.
Besides, only the UTILITY COMPANIES can dig without permission on an easement, not private individuals. Then the other violater claimed the sign belonged to the road association. The land owner then informed the violater that he was wrong, as the sign was paid for and installed by another road association up the hill many years ago. If these two "trustees" had bothered to ask permission to dig, they would have been educated as to these facts. The land owner demanded the violators leave, which they grudgingly did. Two weeks later, the road association newsletter was distributed to all members of the association. The opening paragraph of the letter deceitfully claimed the land owner would not allow the "trustees" on the property to remove the sign. It was not disclosed that the "trustees" had been caught ILLEGALLY DIGGING on the property WITHOUT PERMISSION. Ignorance of the law is not the issue here, as previous newsletters mentioned asking permission to dig on other neighbors property where 15MPH signs were erected. The violaters were clearly aware what the law is and chose not to ask permission simply because they have a pattern of antagonizing and slandering the land owner. Those land owners should get an attorney if they haven't already.

Since the trustees used road association materials to bad mouth the property owners who objected to these same trustees illegally digging on their land, the landowner can sue the road assoication as well. Members will find out very fast what these dishonest trustees have done, lied to them AND used road fund money to slander their neighbor.
I agree with the previous person, SUE EM!

Yeh, if someone came along and started digging on these Ahole trustees' property, they'd be raising a ruckus. How can anyone trust them with the road association money?! They've already proven themselves not to be trustworthy by lying in the newsletter.

From what I heard about this, the landowners were road association trustees for many years and they quit, because the current trustees spread vicious rumors around the neighborhood that they were stealing money from the road fund. There was no evidence of stealing. When the good trustees quit, no one wanted the trustees position because everyone saw how the good trustees were treated. So, now those who started the false rumor are now the trustees. And yes, they have control of the money.

The trustees motto: "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to DECEIVE".

Considering the individuals involved, there should be an annual audit of this association's finances so that members know their dues are being used properly.

The trustees distributed a statement to each member of the association stating that they were sorry that permission was not obtained to dig on the neigbor's property and that the Carter Drive sign does not belong to Carter Drive Road Association. If these trustees had an ounce of integrity, they would have issued the retraction within 24 hours of slandering thier neighbors AGAIN. Instead it took them 3 months to issue the retraction, which makes everyone think they only did so to cover their own behinds in order not to get sued.

The land owner sent a letter demanding a retraction of the false statements made in the libelous road association letter. This fact was conveniently omitted in the "apology" issued letter. Many road association members are to this day totally unaware of the facts. This is typical of what goes on, on Carter Dr.

I don't know why you're quoting Scripture, people who slander others have no respect for God and will never admit that they're wrong. They can go to church every Sunday, sing God's praises & then come home & stir up trouble.

Slander is what passive aggressive bullies do in order to destroy a person's reputation, to set people against the one being slandered. Passive aggressive bullies paint themselves as the victim. It is secretive bullying because the person being slandered isn't there to defend themselves against the false accusations. Many times people don't recognize the bullying as such, because passive aggressive bullies don't engage in physical violence, threats or property damage. Passive aggressive bullying and slandering is very destructive in the work place, as well as neighborhoods, pitting groups of people against each other creating a hostile environment whereby people don't trust each other and end up hating each other. It is no wonder that God considers slander as serious as murder.
