    Neighbor denied restraining order

    CLEARWATER -- A Largo woman embroiled in a nine-month feud with her neighbor over squawking cockatiels was denied a restraining order Wednesday that sought to displace the bird's owner.

    Judge Irene Sullivan dismissed the injunction requested by Eileen Nece and said neighbor Mary Chamblin never demonstrated a real threat in the past.

    Chamblin, 23, and her husband moved into the unattached duplex next door in January. In March, Nece wrote them the first of several letters complaining about Minnie, Mo Mo and Ray Ray, the three cockatiels.

    Since then the dispute has escalated to a point at which both parties requested restraining orders. Chamblin's was denied earlier this month.

    Sullivan recommended the neighbors try voluntary mediation. Nece, 52, of 11431-A 126th Ave. N, said she is not interested.
