    Hmmm. I agree that the left can be dang hypocritical, but I wonder about this story. I'd like to hear the property owner's side or at least get his name.

    MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - It's been said that good fences make good neighbors, but trees can be a different story.
    Two homeowners in this exclusive coastal enclave are tangled up in a court fight involving the mysterious felling of a stand of eucalyptus trees that might have been cut down to improve one resident's prized ocean views.
    In March, homeowner Rick Thurman, a sports agent, discovered that 18 eucalyptus trees in his backyard been chopped to the stump while he was out of town on business.
    He concluded that a neighbor, real estate investor Milton Sidley, 73, was the culprit.
    The district attorney charged Sidley with felony vandalism, and Sidley faced a possible five-year prison sentence until a judge reduced the case to a misdemeanor Friday. The decision by Superior Court Judge Lawrence J. Mira leaves open the possibility of a one-year jail sentence, and restitution that could reach tens of thousands of dollars.
    Authorities say Sidley paid to have the trees removed to improve his ocean view, sending a work crew onto Thurman's land without permission.
    "This guy went onto someone else's property and basically destroyed a small habitat," said Deputy District Attorney Ralph Shapiro. "It's wrong."
    Sidley denied he did anything inappropriate and has offered to work out a solution with Thurman.
    "This whole thing, as far as I'm concerned, is a fabrication. It's not what I would do. I spent my whole life dealing with people on an aboveboard basis," Sidley said.
    Thurman said one landscaper estimated it would cost $595,000 to replace the mature trees. He misses the greenery, which framed his backyard and provided habitat for deer and hawks.
    "What's next, he doesn't like the color of my roof tiles, so the next time I'm out of town he comes and has them taken down?" Thurman asked.

    No chance that Milton and Hugh Sidely could be connected. That would be like weird.
