Evacuees receiving much love in Ocala, Florida

The same neighborhood association that sued a homeowner to make him remove a flagpole and the American flag from his yard is at it again. The board of the Majestic Oaks Homeowners Association distributed fliers to the 500 homes in the subdivision with instructions that "their deed restrictions prohibit housing people who fled the Gulf Coast." Some homeowners are angry and ashamed by the actions of the association.

Bob Watson and Audrey Andrews, president and vice president (respectively) of the homeowners association, defend their actions in ludicrous fashion. They feel, being single family dwellings, homes in the neighborhood are not capable of handling the legal liability. Watson said he feels bad but there's no real solution.
