You can make a difference
I am writing to inform the community about SAFE (Saving Animals from Euthanasia). I am not a member of the Logan community geographically speaking, but I am a member of the SAFE page on Facebook.
It was recently brought to my attention that Logan County Dog Pound has received a large number of medium to large sized dogs from a terrible hoarding situation. The volunteers work tirelessly on Facebook promoting the adoption of cats and dogs. Not a day goes by that these volunteers aren’t advocating for change, help, adoption, transport, money or networking for these helpless creatures.
The time has come for all of us to come together to work on solutions for solving the problem of pet overpopulation throughout the US. Please get the word out about the many, many, many wonderful animals at the Logan County Dog Pound and please do whatever you can to help save homeless pets.
If you’re reading this, please know that you are one person and that you can make a difference. Volunteer, network, transport, foster, hang fliers, donate blankets, food, or money. If you can’t do any of those things, tell your friends about how amazing the volunteers are at Logan County Dog Pound.

Recently I attended the funeral of a family member in Man and I must say I was very disturbed by one of your local customs. It seems it is the custom to “reserve” gifts and flowers for anyone you wish to have the item at the end of the funeral services.
This became a problem after the funeral when the family had to “divide” the gifts. It was very uncomfortable.
What was even more disturbing was finding out that the flower shop had reserved gifts for the wrong person and had to correct it in the following days. Can you imagine the embarrassment of having someone call you and ask you to return the gift/flowers to the flower shop so they can see that it gets to the correct person? Can you imagine the family wondering how many other mistakes were made?
It would certainly save a lot of heartache and embarrassment if people would just send a gift to the individual’s home if they want them to have it after the service rather than “reserve” it?
