  1. The Home Team: A wag's survey of dog parks across AmericaRead the original story w/Photo

    33 min ago | Westport News

    I enter through the security gates of the dog park at the corner of Main Avenue and Pacific in Santa Monica, Calif., and a young woman with a smallish white-and-black dog says, "Is that Kemba?" Which kind of blows my mind, because I've never laid eyes on this woman before. Turns out that Carol, my wife, had taken Kemba to Joslyn Park -- yet another dog park in Santa Monica -- the day before, and had met this woman, Tanya, and her dog, Parker.

    After all, NRA chief Wayne LaPierre traded his dog whistle for an air horn at a recent gathering of the gun faithful in Washington, D.C. "I have to tell you," he said, "eight years of one demographically-symbolic president is enough." Still, as insults go, it was a rather neatly-crafted twofer.

    The mountain lion known as P-22, fitted with a GPS collar, is caught on camera on Griffith park. When we wrote an editorial last week suggesting that the mountain lion P-22, who strolled out of his usual Griffith Park habitat and temporarily hunkered down in the crawl space of a nearby Los Feliz house, should be given a proper name, our readers took up the challenge.

    Typically this is followed by a lot of paperwork, but the handshake seals the deal. If on the original copy of the paperwork there is one set of numbers and on the final copy there is a different set, maybe a number got transposed, so we go back to the original documents.

    55 min ago | Bangor Daily News

    See Hillary ride in a van! Watch her meet everyday Americans! Witness her ordering a burrito bowl at Chipotle! Which she did wearing shades, as did her chief aide Huma Abedin, yielding security-camera pictures that made them look - to borrow from Karl Rove - like fugitives on the lam, wanted in seven states for a failed foreign policy. There's something surreal about Hillary Clinton's Marie Antoinette tour, sampling cake and commoners.

    55 min ago | Bangor Daily News

    It is exceedingly frustrating and unfair to Maine residents that several Maine media organizations continue to portray the staffing of key positions at the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention as the sole determinant of the state's ability to handle an outbreak of disease or a public health emergency. Most recently, Dr. Peter Millard was interviewed by the Bangor Daily News and was quoted as saying Maine's level of preparedness is "terrible."

    I urge Genoa Township residents to vote for the fire and police levies that will be on the May 5 ballot. It is very important that voters turn out because without the levy passage, there will be no fire/ EMS or police department in Genoa Township.

  18. Buckeye Lake promotion is waste of moneyRead the original story w/Photo

    57 min ago | The Columbus Dispatch

    In response to the Thursday Dispatch article "Signs of hope ahead?" I had to laugh when I read that the state of Ohio plans to spend $1 million to promote Buckeye Lake. Even years before it was determined the dam was unsafe and the water level was ordered to be held at unusable levels, Buckeye Lake has been used as a septic-tank leech bed for the hundreds of properties lining the lake banks with aged, crushed and cracked septic tanks and piping.
