Kiwanis trees       Send a link to a friend

[DEC. 9, 2004]  The Lincoln Kiwanis Club has received its last shipment of Christmas trees to be sold this season at the Mitchell-Newhouse Lumber Company lot. The final shipment arrived Wednesday night and will be available through Sunday.

The trees will be available from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Lincoln Kiwanis Club uses funds from the sale of Christmas trees to help finance various youth activities in the Lincoln and Logan County area.

Life Sentence, No Parole

If we tried to invent the cruelest punishment for dogs, we probably couldn't come up with anything worse than "solitary confinement" on a chain or in a kennel.

Dogs are pack animals who crave the companionship of others.  Scratches behind the ears, games of fetch, or even just walks around the block mean the world to them.  Curling up at your feet while you watch TV is their idea of heaven.

Many dogs left to fend for themselves at the end of a chain fall prey to attacks by other animals or cruel people, and many others are injured or hanged or choke as a result of getting entangled or caught in their tether.

If you have a backyard dog, please, bring him or her inside.  They don't want much--just you.
