Opinion: Where did civility go?

In a recent “Parade” article a writer had an interesting solution for a dog who pooed on a person’s lawn. The article title was “Manner up.”

The city of San Diego has noise abatement codes. As you probably know this relates to dogs barking as well as any other noise in the city. If you pass a neighbor whose dog barks, this person is violating the noise code. How do you solve this mishmash that is going on in a year when we would like to see civility. Is civility too much to ask from dog owners.

    That is interesting Frieda,
    do you know that there is a noise abatement code at our beaches to restrict disturbing noise and even a beach sign with pictures of a mega phone with a cross through it and a code that no disturbing noises within 500 feet of a retirement home like Casa de Manana, and the city does not enforce these codes after several call to the police!
    Guess where this location is ?
    Children's Pool.
