Noise ordinance states 9PM quiet time. Kids will be kids, I get that. Kids should have fun, and should be allowed to play basketball on their own property. But past 10PM or even 11:30PM to midnight. Dude, you can hear the basketball thump, thump, whack, thud, every bounce. Cannot block the sound out or ignore it any longer. How to handle this situation? I have already asked nicely 3 times, I don't want them to get in trouble with the police either. I would have hoped thier parents would have the common sense not to let them play when it is dark outside. Oh Well.

This is Maysville/Mason County! There should be no noise ordinance for playing basketball at any hour of the night. We ball hard in this town!

Yes, noise is noise. The maysville noise ordinance says 50 DB at 50 ft. A basketball bounce is well over 50Db at 100Ft. Think I will call the cops instead of personally getting involved. They should know better than making all that noise after 11PM anyway.

Try living next door to a family with 10 dogs and a bunch of people that sleep all day and stay up and at it all night. I for one would much rather put up with ball players than what this mess is!

I think the city does have a limit on the # of dogs allowed. Anyway, noise is noise, dogs are not immune from the ordinance.

I feel your pain. My asshole neighbor put up one of these hoops and opened it up to any kid in the area who wants to come around and slam that ball on the pavement. There is one little shit across the street who's out there on Saturday mornings at about 7:30 am slamming away. I have called the police numerous times about the racket, but they seldom even show up. I talked to the public relations officer at the precinct that has jurisdiction in our area. He says that there's not really much the police can do because technically it's not illegal.

A friend of mine who is an attorney advised me to make some noise of my own. So, I put my 1100-watt stereo, with 9" subwoofers, right in front of a window that faces the street. The vast majority of the basketball-thudders are members of the black community, so I play a variety of music that I know they really hate, such as organ cantatas by J.S. Bach, Hank Williams and Scottish bagpipe marches. The bagpipes really do the trick. After about 10 minutes of Ian MacDudlesac and his 20-man bagpipe band, they decide to leave, uttering numerous "muhfukkas" and grabbing crotches. Whatever! Just as long as they go. You might give this method a try. It's very effective and there's absolutely nothing they can do about it.

They play ball and sell drugs and carry firearms and plan home invasions and car thefts and..., well, you get the idea.

Surely you can't be so na´ve as to think that playing basketball somehow magically deters the dope trade or random thefts and violence.

"Maing, since I started playin' b-ball late at night, I don't wants to smoke rock no mo'. Noamsayne, maing? Now get yo' honky azz on outta heah or I bus cap in it. Noamsayne>

Being black and playing basketball automatically = selling drugs, carrying firearms, and planning home invasions.

Rubbish. There seems to be little hope for the majority of you people. The only information that you have is that they're playing basketball, and are black. Surely you can't be so naive and ignorant to assume you can draw conclusions from your bullshit stereotype? No..it looks like I'm wrong. Thank goodness for the internet, and its ability to give people the courage to be themselves, through anonymity.

Where are you from? Oh my, Beverly Hills! Rahthuh! I'll wager that it's just so dreary and commonplace for you, living in your gated community, relaxing from a hard day of spending money, ordering the servants around and being a pompous ass, then browsing the internet on your computer (which Mr. Charles, your groveling interior decorator picked out for you because it matches your living room drapes) and coming across bourgeois commoners like me who can't ever seem to grasp that there are two ways of looking at things, your way and the wrong way. Perfectly hideous, dahling!

I never stated that playing basketball automatically equated to dope dealing and thuggery. I was pointing out the naivete of thinking that if a kid plays basketball, he doesn't also deal dope or participate in home invasions. There are those who are capable of doing all three. By the same token, not every kid who plays basketball also sells dope, etc.

By the way, what characteristics do you assign to those you refer to as "you people?" I am certainly very well educated and hold multiple degrees. As you can see, I am erudite and possess a solid command of English and grammar. My IQ is 172. So is it lack of education or inability to express oneself properly that would fit your criteria? Rubbish! It's those who are not denizens of your social strata and simply do not know they should be bowing down to your superior breeding and fine old money. How gauche! Buffy and Num-Nums would be simply appalled, appalled I tell you, if she came to find out that there were backwoods barbarians like me didn't know their PLACE!

Thank GOD for the internet, dahling. It does indeed allow all to see the true nature of any beast. Oh, sorry. I'm keeping you too long. I know you have to get to the club for some squash with Freddie and Mumsies. Ta-ta, penis!

Your IQ of 172 and "solid command of English and grammar" do little for your understanding of routers, TOR, or internet protocol. If your claims are true, bully for you, but this isn't MENSA or the MacArthur Foundation.

If I've offended your sensibilities by pointing out how you've associated being black with dealing drugs, home invasions, etc., then shame on me. I guess. My use of "you people" is reserved for those who would draw such conclusions, and I offer no apology to those, who display that degree of ignorance. If I've misjudged you, then I am sorry, but looking at your post..it seems I'm not mistaken.

Furthermore, you are obviously racist, and have several issues. I stumbled upon several of your other posts, from different locations; the common ground being your resentment toward the black community.

Attention hard-working white people: The black ghetto coonmunity has come up with a new scam to rob your house. First, they put three fat, ugly sherillas out in the street in front of the victim's house. These creatures then proceed to bobble dem haids back and forff and holler, "Oh no you did'ent," "Ah know das right," and "We finna see." While this is happening, merchandise stolen from Walmart is falling out from under the folds of fat and the muh coohie where they stuffed it. Meanwhile, de bruvvas be bussin' in de back do' and grabbing whatever they can. But before they leave, dey whips out dey MUH DIKKKKKKKs and has a downlow session in yo' libbin' room. Keep your disinfectant handy in case this happens to you.

The world also does not revolve around kids playing "baggaball" or around Brooklyn badasses like you. Why don't we erect one of these hoops 50 feet from your front door and have every baggy-panted, gangsta wannabe crotch grabber within a 5-mile radius drop by and slam that ball whenever they feel like it. "Tough One" indeed. Another internet badass.
You are a clueless, classless, parasitic drain on society. All of the education in the world can't change the fact that you are, currently, socially inferior, and an existential nightmare. Please, take your gaudy rhetoric and faux intelligence elsewhere, until you develop some respect for your fellow man.
