The Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter's fashion show held Sunday afternoon featured models not yet booked for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. The models were each known by one name - not unlike Tyra, Gisele and Heidi. However, Panda, Tia and Leda strutted down the runway and licked the people in the front row. The model dogs donned scarves and outfits to join the human models displaying fashions available in the shelter's thrift shop. “We have a lot of nice stuff here, and it's a way for our volunteers to show it off,” Jennifer Vanderau said, adding that many of the clothes are familiar brands with tags still attached.

I recently read an article online titled “The Ten Reasons They Hate You So” at www.truthinfood.com . The article wasn't hostile like the title might suggest. The author was attempting to explain why seemingly well-educated urbanites and suburbanites loathe many modern agricultural practices. Mike Smith, the author, made several valid points that go beyond the current mantra that if we just educate them they will understand. He goes on to point out that “modern agriculture's vulnerability is this: Today's farmer is just as generationally divorced from the modern, urban liberal-arts university as his city cousin is from the farm.

With temperatures nearing the 100-degree mark during the past week, some area residents expressed concerns about animals being left in cars and what agencies to call to report such activity. “I called the humane society a few days ago and they were closed in the evening when I saw two dogs at the City Park, locked in the car,” a Hagerstown resident said recently in Mail Call. “Then I called the police department, and they told me they don't handle such matters, that I was to call the humane society.” Another person in Mail Call a day later said she was told that as long as the vehicle's windows were cracked and there was ventilation, there was nothing that could be done about an animal being left in a car. “But I'm curious about who you also call when you do see this, if the city police or anybody doesn't respond to it,” the Hagerstown resident said.
