Claira the pig loses appeal

By Carla Bass

City Editor


Following the story two weeks ago, we stated in error that Kristin Aldridge plead guilty and accepted to pay her $500 fine, but she was wanting to have a jury hear her case. She went to City Hall to file an appeal. The fee for the appeal would have been twice the amount of the fine. She said she would return with the right amount to file the appeal.


Aldridge never returned, so the appeal was rejected.


According to Jim Finstrom, “No second chance for an appeal will be provided.”


After driving by the Steamboat Inn several times, it does not look as though Claire is still in residence there. All of the lattice work trim around the bottom of the house is back in place, an under the bed and breakfast was where she spent the most of her day.
