Police Reports Are Worth The Effort! - We were robbed and made the effort to file the "denunciation". It is paying off, as the police are now finding our stuff. Without a filed report, they have much less opportunity to deal with these crimes. I believe that we all have a moral and ethical responsibility to assist the police to the fullest extent possible. ☞ Les Schubert, 612-139-1209, 11/7/2015

Dogs In Danger - In Pescadero - Alert dog owners: I've been told by the farmers that there are several dogs running through their crop fields and damaging them. Their only recourse, as it's always been, is to put poison out in the fields. I don't think any of us want to lose our pets like this, or any way for that matter. The only answer is to keep your dogs in their yards. Keep them home where they'll be safe, always know where they're at. ☞ Name Withheld By Request, Pescadero

Mother And Two Males - In May, a mama kitty and her litter of two adopted me. The plan then was to live in TS.I am returning to US with the 2 cats I came with to a rental.
