Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

Here's an excerpt:

“As a result of the investigation into the latest incident at the animal shelter, Police Chief Dwight Duch has assumed control of the Forrest City Animal Control Division as of June 4, 2010,” Mayor Gordon McCoy said in a press release. “I am currently evaluating the department, as I have been for some time, and the facility. I believe that there is a solution to the situation, and I am going to work with the Forrest City Area Humane Society to get this situation resolved and ensure that it doesn’t happen again.”

We'll be watching. I have inquired about an attorney being hired and will be reporting back. I have been busy with a weekend long event, and cannot post the information yet that I have promised. In the meantime this has unfolded, and I think it's good news.
