The Marshall County Commission plans to replace the huge oak trees that were destroyed by the weekend storms with palm trees.
The commission is doing this in honor of Marshall County District Judge Mitch Floyd, according to county arborist Tara Diddle.
Floyd was tangled in a legal mess when he was in college after cutting down a palm tree while on a beach trip to Florida.
Tara Diddle, or taradiddle, is another word for fool, as in Happy April Fool's Day.
Most everything in this story is a lie – except that Floyd is a district judge.
