Board of Supervisors to repeal courthouse camping ordinance; GPU meeting canceled, Open Space, Conservation Elements …

The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors directed staff at its Tuesday meeting to draft an ordinance that would repeal the 2012 ordinance which set restrictions on the courthouse campsites like those of the Occupy movement. With the county Human Rights Commission listing a number of state laws that already provide similar restrictions in a staff report, 2nd District Supervisor Estelle Fennell said there was no need for a separate county ordinance

Gay marriage licenses draw protesters to Montco

Not many people get their marriage licenses with a prayer group protesting a few feet away.

But that’s what happened to Lynn Zeitlin and Gabriela Assagioli on Friday in Norristown.

The couple, from Penn Valley, have been together for several years and had put on a wedding ceremony in the past, but they came to the Register of Wills’ Office on Friday to obtain a Montgomery County marriage license. Even though same-sex marriage is not legal in Pennsylvania, D. Bruce Hanes, the register of wills, has allowed his office to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples since Wednesday.

As of Friday afternoon, more than 25 licenses had been granted to same-sex couples, according to Frank Custer, the county communications director, including the one for Zeitlin and Assagioli.

Thirteen protesters, most aligned with the Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania, entered the office lobby just after noon, several carrying signs with phrases including “Marriage: One Man. One Woman” and “Children Need a Mom and Dad.”

Michael McMonagle, the coalition’s president, distributed sheets of paper to office employees that contained descriptions of several crimes he said office employees are committing by issuing the licenses, such as obstructing the administration of law, or tampering with public records. He and several other protesters delivered remarks denouncing gay marriage, and the group recited prayers in unison for about a half-hour.

“You put yourselves above state law,” McMonagle said to office employees, adding that Hanes’ decision was akin to tyranny.

Around 12:40 p.m., the group headed across the street to the courthouse, hoping to meet with District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman, who they say should charge Hanes with the misdemeanor crimes listed on McMonagle’s flier. A receptionist told McMonagle that no one was available to meet the group. On Thursday, Ferman issued a statement saying she did not plan to take action against Hanes.
