The AP reports:

"Some Long Islanders are in hot water --because of their backyard pools. The town of Riverhead, New York, is using Google Earth to find pools that don't have the proper permits. Officials say satellite images revealed about 250 pools whose owners never filled out the required paperwork. Violators have paid a total of about $75,000 in fees."

Now, look--I'm all for following the rules, but when this (link below) is what one has to contend with, is it all that surprising some homeowners figured out an easier way to do things?
