Keep up with story of Merry the dog
I wanted to thank the Salisbury Post for your coverage of the story about Merry the puppy. I’m one of the many people that donated money to help pay for Merry’s medical bills. I was very disappointed with the results of the recent court hearing in this matter and was hoping to see a follow-up story based on what happened at the trial, according to the district attorney’s office.
Again, you’ve done a nice job on this story ó I’d encourage you to keep following it through.

Be a Santa success
Our first Be a Santa to a Senior program in Salisbury was a huge success. We at Home Instead Senior Care were overwhelmed by the tremendous support of this caring community. Not only did you respond with wonderful gifts for needy seniors, but also with offers to volunteer to help with the wrapping, delivering and more. The outpouring of support was incredible and folks truly went above and beyond.
We provided gifts to over 70 needy seniors in three different locations here in Salisbury, and they were most grateful. Your efforts truly mattered.
We want to especially thank the youth group from Community Baptist Church which created beautiful Christmas cards for all the seniors and came caroling at Brightmoor Nursing Center; all three Walgreens stores for displaying the trees with ornaments for each senior; WSTP, the Salisbury Post and Senior Savvy for helping us get the word out about BASTAS.
We look forward to an even bigger and better Be a Santa to a Senior program next year!

Tiger problem
OK, let’s get this straight.
Does everyone remember Sidney? Does everyone remember where Sidney escaped from? I would think that everyone in the Rockwell area should invest in some sort of firearm due to these tigers being placed so close to your homes.
This is just an opinion, but if you have kids and you live anywhere close, think about Sidney. Think about the zoo in Asheboro. What types of fences do they have?
Be forewarned. This is a major problem. Do not take it lightly. These are nasty and vicious hunters, not kitty cats. Lions are at the top of the food chain, and so are tigers. Just an opinion.
