BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Residents tee off lawsuit over wayward golf balls


The new 15th hole at a City of Anaheim, California, golf course has gotten on the last nerve of nearby residents who say the changed trajectory of golf balls has caused damage to their homes, KTLA 5 reported.

Casa Hermosa Mobile Home Park residents, now suing the city, said the problem started about two to three years ago when some trees were cleared and the tee box was moved in order, they claim, to speed up play on the course, according to the news report.

“What happened over here is one came flying and broke my window,” Casa Hermosa resident Heide Thomas told KTLA, as she pointed to her damaged window. Another resident, George Kezios, pointed out a window he replaced after it was broken by a golf ball, as well as actual holes in his home from other wayward balls.

Just as it’s been raining golf balls since, the city claimed it needed to move the 15th hole to accommodate some of the work the county had to do along a flood control channel.

The lawsuit is asking the city to make changes to the 15th hole or put up large nets to protect the homes and residents from potential injuries.
