Now I know this picture and story
should be on the adopt-a-pet page but I have been receiving heavy
criticism of all the dog pictures we have been running for the
Humane Society. Of course all those pooches would make great pets
but the cat lovers out there and my own cat, Jackson, say they want
a little equal time. I agree and so may I introduce all of you to
Stripes. Stripes is an adult, neutered male and he is definitely a
people person cat! He loves being around people and enjoys hanging
around and appreciates a good lap and scratch as much as anyone. If
you would like to meet him or be a foster parent to someone like
Stripes, please call the Humane Society of Logan County at 737-4042.

works at the Chamber of Commerce, with the Chamber or just
volunteers for that weekend deserves our thanks and praise. So do
something nice this weekend. When you are out and about enjoying the
moment stop one or several of the many volunteers and tell them

takes funds to run this festival
Nothing of the magnitude of our Art and Balloon
Festival comes without heavy costs and every year this community has
to rely on the generous donations of so many organizations and
individuals to allow the festival to continue to be the success that
it is. In Thursday's Top Stories, the LDN was pleased to list all
the sponsors of this year's event and we have included them in our
Balloon Fest section of the paper for the remainder of the weekend.
