Great items added to auction fund-raiser
Please join us on Friday evening, August 6, from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at VFW for Dog Days Goes Country, a fund-raiser to benefit the many homeless and neglected animals of Marshall County.
During one recent day, on our phone line, we were asked to take 5l dogs from members of the community. The needs are endless and we only make a small dent in what is needed. We do operate a weekly, low cost, spay-neuter clinic. This is our best effort at reducing the stray dog and cat population. Since our program began in 1999, we have surgically altered more than 8,000 animals. This has all been done with the help of an all-volunteer staff and a low paid veterinarian. We take in a small number of animals at our shelter, but have limited space and limited volunteers to take care of them every day.
We need the support of the community, with the help of this fund-raiser, to keep our efforts going!
We have some really exciting items for our auction, such as a custom-made castle doghouse, antique Rosewood sewing rocker, hand-painted wine glasses, two nights in the Smokys, memorabilia from Morgan Freeman, plants, some great dinners for two, and some surprises we won’t mention.

Help Cubans drive Castro out
In reply to the Khrushchev threat of Red missile retaliation for U.S. “aggression” in Cuba, and Khrushchev’s remark that the Monroe Doctrine is dead, the U.S. State Department has suggested sharply that he keep out of Latin America. Khrushchev’s minions are already in Cuba and we doubt this advice will cause him to withdraw them.
