N.H. Town Settles With Home for People With HIV, Hep C

The Cleve Jones Wellness House, a home for people with HIV and hepatitis C, has reached a settlement in a legal dispute with the Town of Gilsum, New Hampshire, according to New Hampshire Public Radio (NHPR). As a result, the house can remain in operation. Legal action began after the town denied the facility a property tax exemption because it had filed the necessary application several days late, even though town administrators were usually lenient in dealings with similar, non-HIV-related organizations. This was Gilsum’s second legal battle with the facility since the AIDS Services of the Monadnock Region purchased the property in 2005.

Really? In New Hampshire of all places? I wouldn't have been surprised by a story like this coming out of the Midwest but to see this happening in New England really disappoints me. The first thought to cross my mind was to tell the town of Gilsum that the 1980s called and wanted it's AIDS panic back.
