Many of you have been following the ongoing medical kidnapping attempt of a seven-year-old little girl named Kennedy Willey at Children’s Hospital of Orange County, California.

I have known Kennedy’s mother, Dawn, for a couple of years now and I met her whole family earlier this year on my way through Southern California. Kennedy’s parents are two of my favorite parents of all-time. They are mother-effing warriors, I tell you.  We should all aspire to be so strong.

They have worked very hard to manage their daughter’s seizure disorder without pharmaceutical drugs (which were failing her) by providing her with the healthiest, most nutritious foods available. They have left their home state to allow Kennedy to live on the water where allergy pollen is…

In every case across the country where children are taken by the state, there is a mandatory hearing a few days after the children have been kidnapped, where the…

They didn’t know his name, but cautioned shelters and pet owners to be on high alert.

Animal Control officers in Marion were also warning about dog fighters who forced dogs to fight in the trunks of cars.

Officer Becky Blundell said abusers will drive until the noise from the trunk stopped and either one or both of the dogs was dead.

Blundell said people like the man looking for bait dogs online was the reason the Marion Shelter does background checks on anyone adopting an animal.

She said pet owners also have to be watchful for dog thieves.

“Keep an eye on your pet. Identification tags are always necessary,” she said.

11th Hour for Arizona’s Wild Burros

The burros have never had it easy with our government agencies. The fox is guarding the hen house when it comes to protections for this nation’s icons of our pioneering past. They are symbols of our culture and living natural icons of our pioneering history. Yet, our own governmental agency which is tasked with protecting our wild burros and horses, because of this important connection to our past, is cavalierly managing them to extinction without remorse.

MANSFIELD, Ohio- A local family is speaking out after a federal marshal shot their dog at their house Wednesday night.

Destiny Harvey said her dog Shady, a 3-year-old Labrador-Mastiff mix, was shot in the neck by a U.S. Marshal with the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force. Marshals were inquiring about the whereabouts of a fugitive on South Foster Street in Mansfield.

“They said he charged them, but I doubt he did that.  He just barks a lot,” Harvey said.

Harvey said her 13-year-old brother answered the front door.

“He said the cops came and knocked on the door, and asked him to put the dogs out. He put one dog that can’t walk very well into my mom’s room.  And then he let the other dog out back, not knowing there were officers in the back yard,” Harvey said.

According to Pete Elliot with the U.S…

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) Film Review by Gareth Rhodes

Silver Fang:

This was my favorite movie from my teen years.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) Directed by James Cameron. With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, Edward Furlong, Earl Boen and Joe Morton.

If someone told me “Terminator 2 is the greatest film ever made“, I wouldn’t argue. It is the kind of film that has you blindly spewing sentences like that, such is its vast, enduring appeal. I must have enjoyed it a dozen times, by now, but with each repeat viewing, I marvel at its many achievements. With Aliens (1986), James Cameron proved he could continue a story in a new and interesting way. Returning to his own baby, Cameron’s sequel to his 1984 sci-fi horror is a tour-de-force of high spectacle, invention, and just downright thrills.

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns on top billing as the Terminator, travelling through time to intercept John Connor (Edward Furlong). Joining him is Robert Patrick’s T-1000, a new and improved liquid…

The Greenville Co pound in SC has implemented two new policies concerning cats:

1. Kittens born at the pound who weigh less than 100 grams will be taken from their mothers and killed immediately.  The reason, as stated in an e-mail written by Susan Bufano, the community relations coordinator for the Greenville Co pound, in response to a concerned citizen:

It is not a normal, healthy birth weight and our vet has determined that they will probably not survive.

“Probably not” indicates to me an inherent admission that there is some hope for survival. And I think that hope is very reasonable, considering the following:
