Carey deserves thanks for tractor pull

To the editor:

I would like to take a moment to say thanks to Eddie Carey, the local 4-H club, the competitors and everyone else who worked so hard to put on a good truck and tractor pull.

The crowd was large, very polite and there wasn’t any trouble. It was a good time for all who attended.

I just hope we can have more of this type of entertainment in the future.

Keep up the good work, Eddie.

Adopt a super sidekick this month

To the editor:

Want to be a Superhero? Rescue a shelter dog and get a loyal sidekick for all of life’s adventures,

You can save the day for a homeless dog — and find a faithful companion that will be at your side for all of life’s adventures — by adopting a dog from your local shelter during Adopt-A-Dog Month in October.

Adopting a dog is a heroic feat that’s easy to perform, and animal shelters are filled with amazing dogs: large, small, mixed breeds, even purebreds.In fact, millions of loyal, lovable dogs are surrendered to our nation’s animal welfare organizations every year because their owners simply couldn’t take care of them anymore. Now they’re homeless and just waiting for a hero like you.

During Adopt-A-Dog Month, we encourage you to visit your local shelter, meet potential sidekicks and discover the many super-size benefits of having a dog: happiness, companionship, improved physical and emotional health, and devoted love. Dogs also encourage people to exercise, enhance family and social relationships, promote laughter and act as a nonjudgmental audience and sounding board.

Now that’s super.

The Humane Society works year-round to support animal welfare organizations, promote adoptions and enhance the bond that people share with their companion animals. And each year during Adopt-A-Dog Month, we encourage you to check out at the adoptable dogs we are hoping to find good homes for.

If you’re ready to find your very own faithful canine companion, check out our website at www.andersonhumane.org or come visit the adoption center at 1410 Versailles Road.
