Egyptian armored vehicle protects building

An Egyptian army armored vehicle guards the television building following protests in Cairo, Egypt on Friday. The Egyptian capital Cairo was the scene of violent chaos Friday, when tens of thousands of anti-government protesters stoned and confronted police, who fired back with rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons. It was a major escalation in what was already the biggest challenge to authoritarian President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year rule.

The 'Handyman' trailer

A busted box

A tree branch grows through an electrical meter box in a resident's backyard at Regency Mobile Home Park on Oct. 27. Many people living at the park complain about exorbitant electrical bills, and some trailers use as much electricity as a 3,000 square-foot home. Columbia Water and Light officials have investigated two complaints but have not come up with any definitive cause, or answer to, the issue.

Community policing

Columbia Police Officer Brandon Crites participates in community policing, stopping to talk with residents Nov. 11. Crites sees Regency as a personal project, but because the park is on private property, he and other officers are limited by rules much different than those on city property. A few days after this photo was taken, the residents — one not pictured here — were arrested for burglarizing a home.

Abandonment and infestation

Many homes in the Columbia Regency park are abandoned and left to rot for months on end, sometimes becoming a breeding ground for mice and snakes and other infestations. The Office of Neighborhood Services can cite the park for those health violations.
