  • As summer arrives, enjoy its warmth and activities

    Everyone will take advantage of the summer heat this June. The toasty sun is something everyone has been looking forward to.

  • Lady Panthers basketball camp
  • City, county laws are in place on pets to protect residents

    At the start of summer, everyone wants to be outside enjoying the warm weather, nature and the beautiful surroundings that we have in our county. Sometimes that enjoyment is hampered by others’ actions.

    It seems as though my office and the office of the county judge-executive have been inundated with complaints about dogs. The complaints have included dogs running loose, people having too many dogs and allowing vicious dogs to run loose. As such, I decided to write this month’s column to clarify the various laws dealing with dogs that we should all live by.
