Forgotten Laws of Belvidere, Nebraska.....

While going over the Town Charter, I came across some long forgotten laws that are still on the books. Many are very much applicable to today's modern Belvidere. Who hasn't been frustrated with late season turnip pickers?

(The burying of a Belvidere woman who had picked turnips after Founder's Day circa 1983.)

Law 137.9a: There shall be no picking of turnips after Founder's Day until the first full moon of the new year. Violaters of this law shall be buried unto their waist for a sixth night.
