New lyric video "Imminent":
Brian May for may? How bout playing Blue on Black ft. Five finger death punch, kenny wayne shepard, brantley gilbert and BRIAN MAY
A good holiday to get rid of ? X-MAS ! Many people get cheated out of their birthday celebration with X-mas in the same month. People are exhausted with shopping and get lazy so they give you a gift and look at it as your birthday/Xmas present. However, fruit cake instead of birthday cake with no candles ?! No streamers & balloons hanging, but only angels and church bells?! Everyone recognizing birth of Christ but no attention to my birth?! Frankincense and muir brought by wise men? One of them brought GOLD so give me some gold watches, necklaces, rings and bracelets?! Then I'll feel better and get by with celebrating X-mas and birthday in same month and we'll keep X-mas !
Clutch!!!

Tj Dercks rescues pot belly pigs who have been abused, neglected, have medical issues, as well as special needs.

The Town of Buchanan told TJ that she had to move, TJ was informed of this just 3 weeks before the pandemic began. The Town of Buchanan is NOT taking the pandemic into consideration. TJ has been actively looking for a new property to call home for her, her father, and the pigs that she has rescued.

TJ runs Saving Snouts Pig Sanctuary with her own money, she receives no financial assistance. Each day TJ is given a fine of $50 from the Town of Buchanan, the total cost of the daily fine is $125 with the added court costs.

Lets help TJ!!!!!

Beginning today until October 1, 2021, I will donate all proceeds from the book "Yes, a Pig Lives in Our House!" to Saving Snout Sanctuary. To order this book please send me a private message. The cost of the book is $15.00, shipping is $8.00.

If you would like to help TJ and not purchase "Yes, a Pig Lives in Our House!", please visit https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2OC1D2DVYFZM1/.... This is the Amazon wish list for food and supplies needed to care for these pigs on a daily basis.

Thank you VERY much for supporting TJ Dercks and all of the loving care that she gives these rescued pigs.

Visiting TJ and watching her interact and care for these pigs is extremely heartwarming, her love and compassion shine bright.
Town of Buchanan issuing $50 daily fines to pig sanctuary

TOWN OF BUCHANAN, Wis. (WLUK) -- At the beginning of the month, the Town of Buchanan started issuing $50 daily fines to the owners of a pig sanctuary.

The town says it's just trying to gain compliance after giving the sanctuary more than a year to meet the town code. However, the pigs' owner believes future development is fueling the town's fines.

The Town of Buchanan issues daily fines to a pig sanctuary in the town, citing a violation of its code. (WLUK video){ }

More than 20 pigs that either have a disability or were unwanted now live at the Saving Snouts pig sanctuary in the Town of Buchanan.

TJ Dercks' family has had farm animals on its land for more than 40 years.

She started the pig sanctuary about six years ago, but Dercks says it wasn't until early last year when town officials told her the operation was against town code.

“I know they want to urbanize,” said Dercks. “We honestly want to move as well because we don't want the view of condos and a park across the street from us.”

In an email, Town of Buchnan administrator Maggie Mahoney told FOX 11 the Dercks were first mailed a notice about operating without a permit in 2018. Last February, the town board granted the Dercks a special exception for the pigs. It was for 17 months, expiring July 31, 2021.

Town board minutes show the exception was to allow the Dercks time to find a new place to keep the pigs, partly because development across the street was expected within a year or two.

“We go to these houses and there's 20 people lined up that are also looking at these houses,” said Dercks. “That is the most challenging part. It's frustrating.... Not to mention the year that they gave me happened to be during the pandemic and when lumber prices were about eight times the amount they were typically.”

A month after the exception expired was when the fines started. Dercks says with court costs the daily fine amount is $124.

FOX 11 had an interview setup with Mahoney, but she emailed us back saying something came up and instead sent us a statement.

“The Town Board is seeking compliance in moving the pigs out of the sanitary sewer district and is enacting enforcement per the Town Code,” reads Mahoney’s statement. “The Town has, and continues, to work closely with the property owner on this matter. No further information is available at this time.”

FOX 11 then tried contacting town chairperson Greg Sprangers. He declined our interview request, but told us the fines aren't about any potential development nearby, it's only to gain compliance.

“I mean I guess it's a little bit of a coincidence that as soon as the property across the street gets talked about that it's up for sale, all of a sudden my animal sanctuary is an issue,” said Dercks.

Dercks says she continues to look for a spot to relocate. She is also considering legal action against the town.

“We have a special bond with these animals,” said Dercks. “We don't plan on giving up.”

When the town board granted the special exception last year, minutes from the meeting show three neighbors spoke in support of the pig sanctuary.
