Lincolnite wants to hear from friends          Send a link to a friend


I'm Nonnie Loveless of Minnesota. My son John has cancer, and I would like for his friends and anyone that would care to send him a card to cheer him up. Send it to John Loveless, 109 S. Ellsworth St., Houston, MN 55943.

He was born and lived in Lincoln until he came here so that he can be treated for the cancer. He would enjoy hearing from all of his friends. He will be having surgery in December.

Thank you.

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.
