Memphis' own Prince Mongo appealing latest nuisance finding at Daytona Beach home

Longtime Memphis provocateur, political candidate and misunderstood landscape artist Robert "Prince Mongo" Hodges has appealed a recent finding that his Daytona Beach, Fla.-area home is a nuisance, what with its "manmade sand dunes, sculptures, kitsch and clotheslines with panties, bras and other clothing."

Mongo, of course, is no stranger to this sort of thing. When last we heard about the Zambodian snowbird, authorities in Florida were excavating his uniquely decorated yard with heavy equipment while he was away for the summer. The latest alleged violation is a result of his "redecorating." Nor is he a stranger to lawyering up and making it very expensive for local governments to deal with him.

Hodges has been quarreling for several years over his yard with neighbors and county code enforcement. Similar issues over his yard decor have followed Hodges at his home in Memphis and former home in Fort Lauderdale.

"I call it decorating, art and landscaping," Hodges said. "They are like Hitler, like back in Germany. I have a house and I'm landscaping it, but this is all a political thing and totally irritating."


Heya excellent website! Does running a blog such as this take a lot of work?

I have absolutely no knowledge of programming however I was hoping to start
my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners
please share. I understand this is off topic however I simply had to ask.
Thank you!
