LA HABRA HEIGHTS, Calif. (AP) - Phil and Aida Lough faced off against city officials over a fertilizer made from llama feces. La Habra Heights sued the couple, saying the animals and open drums of animal waste at their home were a stinky, unsanitary mess.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge ordered the Loughs to stop producing their "Llama Brew," but that was only the start of a running battle that has brought turmoil to a suburb known for its quiet locale and sprawling lots.
The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1fC1M1K) reports that the Loughs and other gadflies have filed thousands of public records requests. City Hall limited its public hours because the nine full-time employees are overwhelmed by daily visits from the group. The city's finance manager quit, saying she couldn't take the stress.
