Agency went beyond
to help an injured cat

Caring For Injured Animal

Sunday afternoon, a driver spotted an injured cat beside the road. The injured cat was taken nearby to Happy’s Farm, a nonprofit facility specializing in tutoring and after-school programs, because the driver spotted a lot of cars there.

It turns out Happy’s Farm was hosting a private birthday for one of its 80 students.

The caring staff there contacted Jane Hartness of Rowan Humane Society, who quickly responded to have someone assist in the cat’s needs.

These two fine organizations are to be applauded for their effort to save the cat, which was transported for medical attention.

It speaks highly that they both saw a need and reacted to the situation unselfishly.

The Humane Society does so much for the care of animals and the public never hears about it, so this is just one example of what it does.

Your support of the Humane Society would go a long way to help fund situations just like this one.

The members work on a volunteer basis, which speaks of their character and love of animals.

And a big thanks to Happy’s Farm, which went above the norm to care for this animal.  I praise you both.

Why trade Mexico
for life in the U.S.?

I don’t understand why so many people want to come here from Mexico. I’ve spent enough time there to know there is not that much difference. They have laws to cover any and everything, but they only enforce the ones they want to. Just like we do.

I’ve learned that most people who work for county, state and federal government have no difficulty in lying to cover up for each other. I guess we’re a lot alike.

I also don’t understand why some people hate global warming. I think it’s pretty nice myself.
