Peter Giambro, 70, who stood up to his condo association and refused to let them put the dangerous and potentially lethal drug, Avitrol, out on his balcony to control pigeons, has convinced the association to stop using Avitrol.  He risked a $25 per day fine from the association, which, at this point, totals over $17,000.  The association is said to be reconsidering the fine.  Congratulations, Peter Giambro, and Happy Thanksgiving!
