Oh, the horror!

Lowell Sun

LOWELL — The city’s chicken lady is all cooped up.

Rachel Chandler, one of the leaders of the push for the city to allow backyard chickens, has been illegally keeping hens on her property.

The city’s Animal Control department recently issued a notice of violation to Chandler’s husband, Richard Stec, for the keeping of chickens at their home on Lawrence Street in the city’s Back Central neighborhood.

According to a Lowell police-incident report, animal-control-compliance officer Darleen Wood visited the property Aug. 14.

“All cooped up?” What a doozie. Make no mistake about it, our friends down at the Sun wanted to make sure you got your 75 cents worth this week. Just in case you weren’t floored by the STUNNING scenario that someone championing backyard chickens at City Hall might actually have few chickaroos roaming their property, the Sun staff goes for the kill with “All Cooped up.” “Running a fowl” had to be a finalist, no?

More importantly, Rachel Chandler and her husband are obviously fans of the Cabot, and enjoyed Mark and Tobes’ emails regarding Lowell Chickens. Practically copied the entire play book. And if you’re keeping track at home, that puts our blog readership at about 6, if you count Mark’s wife. Don’t tell our friend over at LiL but Revolutions have started with less.

  1. I don’t know why you guys always link to that left in Lowell site? The women who runs it is a maniac. She doesn’t make sense ever, gets hysterical when you disagree with her, and hijacks discussions in the comment section yapping about IP addresses and new commenters.

    • Jack isn’t bad…a bit wordy, but he at least tries to engage people. I check regularly for his updates.

      Lynne is a maniac and get’s so hysterically involved. I think she thinks that it’s her thoughts and wisdom that people stop by the blog for. I cringe when I see her name pop up in comments.

    • We like LIL, Marty. That’s why we link to it.

      …And we may or may not agree with everything you just said.

  2. Back Central is soooo backyard chicken! That neighborhood should be nothing but back yard chickens.

    Love the Sun photo btw. Making these poor people look like criminals. Somebody should call the cops on campanini and his fire pit. Would the Sun post a picture of the passed out wine queen?

  3. We also may or may not agree with everything New Lowell said too.

  4. I checked out that site, specifically a post about Scott Brown being a self involved, immature boob who takes himself too seriously. (Probably true) Then I read a bunch of comments in other posts where the moderator is yelling at commenters for I guess being new or disagreeing with the post. Then I made a comment suggesting that it was rather hypocritical to be calling out Scott Brown for something that the moderator practices regularly. Nothing profane. Nothing but crickets. Still waiting for that one to get approved.

    No thanks LeftieLowell. It’s not fun to read. And the discussion seems like a members only circle jerk.
