Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 25, 2004]  American Cab Company has replaced American City Cab Company in Lincoln. The new service has obtained the same phone number, 735-9696. An additional line is available at 732-9696. This is a new company with a new owner, new name and a new slogan, "Service for You."

"Itís our desire to provide Lincoln with the best cab service possible. If you need a ride, we want you to know that this is the 'Service for You,'" said Michelle Squaire, the public relations officer. She continued, "We are thrilled that the most reliable drivers who drove for American City Cab will now be driving for American Cab. We feel they are dependable drivers and that many people are comfortable riding with them. Also, we are going to be continually upgrading and maintaining our equipment. We want our customers to know how important they are to us and feel appreciated.

"In fact, in honor of our grand opening, we will be offering $1 off every ride on each Tuesday in October. We hope this introduction to our services will encourage people to continue riding with us.

"We do want to apologize for any inconveniences that were experienced during the week of Sept. 20. Our phone services experienced a few glitches during the transition period, but we want to assure everyone we are definitely open and ready for business.

"Our hours are currently 7 a.m. - 11 p.m., but we can modify that with advanced notice or if there appears to be a real need."

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.
