Nov 24, 2009 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Kalamazoo Gazette

When psychic Carli Lesterhouse, whose professional name is Carli Ray, arranged to rent space in downtown Otsego for her business, Bewitching Wares, she didn't foresee a hurdle that a 93-year-old city ordinance would put in her path.

This is a very interesting story! As an update, just a few days ago, an under cover cop wearing wires went into Carli's & asked for a readings but turned down the healing portion of the session. Consequently she was sited under this antiquated ordinance! I consider this an infringement of Carli's constitutional rights under freedom of speech as giving psychic advice is considered "opinion" which is protected under the Constitution. I hope she sues the pants off of these witch hunters. Maybe then these haters will realize that we live in a free country.

Yup, you're right. Anyone should be free to blow their money as they wish, even if it involves handing it over to someone to hear some superstitious nonsense.

It never ceases to amaze me how the police have some much time on their hands when it comes to what should be a violation of our rights in this free land..What hurt is this doing--is it that much difference than going to church and asking your pastor his advice on if everythings going to turn out all right in your life--or anyone else for that matter?

Sounds like a vedeta. Chief having "flashbacks" from his days at Kalamazoo Police. Really big time bust.... You would'nt see that in a city with a populatioin over 3,500.

Go get the criminals!
