As we say goodbye to February and hello to March, let's remember to keep our furry friends warm and safe because I am sure Mother Nature has a few more days and nights of less than desirable weather planned for us. Food, water and shelter should always be available for our pets whether they are outside for short or extended periods of time. Bargain sale This is the weekend to find treasures and bargains. The Women's Club on South Prospect Street will hold its spring bargain sale Friday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturday from nine to noon.  There will be household items, jewelry, gently worn shoes and clothing for sale at reduced prices.

Good morning and happy Fourth of July, a day early.  Please remember to keep plenty of fresh water available for your furry friends during these hot and humid “dog days” of summer. Also make sure to give them access to a shady, covered area out of the direct blaring heat when they are outside. This should go without saying, but please leave your pets at home while running errands. Even a few minutes in a closed car in this heat can be cruel, even deadly, to pets. Fireworks and baseball There is so much to get into on Wednesday for the Fourth of July.
