New shelter great, what about outreach | Letter to the Editor

  • Nov 30, 2013 at 9:00AM

Thank you for the update on WAIF’s new shelter building. It was surprising that Mr. Rupp and the “leaders” you mentioned (not sure exactly who) did not include reference to their more important news, the hiring of a new executive director who hails from a well-regarded no-kill shelter in Kansas. Maybe WAIF will now be able to evolve from a “minimal kill” to a no-kill shelter as so many “leaders” connected to WAG are hoping.

Keeping plants warm, snuggly in the winter | Sowin ’n’ the Trowel

  • Dec 2, 2013 at 9:00AM

It makes good financial sense to get your home and vehicle ready for the winter. So doesn’t it make just as much sense to put some effort into winterizing your landscaping?

Not only that, but that added value can grow as the landscaping grows and matures over time. Besides, if you’re reading this column, you either enjoy gardening or you enjoy the results of gardening.
