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!

Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye!

Why not a trifecta for the Examiner today?!

From the article in the Examiner:
Raleigh, NC - U.S. District Judge Terrence Boyle doled out the harshest punishment that he could to Harry Hargrove, 78.

Judge Boyle seemed to be as repulsed by the details surrounding Hargrove's dog-fighting "prowess" as the undercover investigators who cracked the dog-fighting ring that Hargrove was involved in.

Yesterday, Hargrove was sentenced to 60 months in prison - the maximum punishment available for his crime. Hargrove had been involved in the dark underworld of dog-fighting for an astonishing 40 years.
