Neighbors Resist Wifey's World
Wednesday, November 8, 2006
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. â€” The randy couple behind the website WifeysWorld.com wants to move to a snazzy neighborhood in Scottsdale, Ariz., but the locals are trying to stop them.
Residents of the upscale neighborhood have started a mailing campaign to stop Kevin and Sandra Otterson from joining their community and bringing with them their eight-year-old adult site. They currently live in Oregon.
â€œThere is no [adult] studio going in,â€ Kevin Otterson said. â€œIâ€™ve never had a studio. [The mailer] made it sound like we hang out with this porn element, and weâ€™re going to be having all these people over. Itâ€™s complete nonsense.â€
The mailer encourages residents to contact Scottsdale city officials and was written by an unknown organization called the Northwest Valley Coalition Against Pornography.
â€œIn order to protect your neighborhood and your children it is important that you take action now,â€ the glossy mailer reads.
Some residents have already responded to the mailer by writing to the city government, asking what they can do to keep the Ottersons from moving in.
â€œAlthough I support freedom of speech, as a parent and homeowner in the area, I am concerned that this business would be established or moved to our area,â€ resident Phil Mihok wrote to the city.
City staff members said that it is not illegal to operate an online adult business from a home.
Judy Register, manager of Scottsdale's Citizen and Neighborhood Resources staff, said there is nothing her organization or the city of Scottsdale can do to prevent the couple from building a home and moving there.
