Discuss vaccination of beloved pet cat with veterinarian To the editor: I am writing this letter in response to Kenneth and Krista Wireman's editorial about their cat Kali's unfortunate illness. Kali has developed a type of tumor called a sarcoma at a site over her shoulder which may be associated with a previous vaccination in that area. These tumors are malignant and very aggressive. Complete removal of the tumor is difficult due to its branching structure, and there is no known effective chemotherapy treatment protocol at this time.

Not bad for a girl who couldn't walk or speak eight months ago. "When she first got out of surgery and was in the ICU, she couldn't talk. She couldn't even swallow," said the 13-year-old's mother, Teresa Roseberry, of Boonsboro.

Chris, the son of Bill and Judi Lewis of Hagerstown, "has spread good cheer to all he has met" and "displayed the heart of a champion and fortitude of a warrior in the midst of suffering, with maturity beyond his years," the proclamation said. Commissioner James F. Kercheval visited the boy and his family Wednesday to deliver the proclamation, along with Randy Buchman, pastor of Tri-State Fellowship Church.

Editor's Note: This column by Tim Rowland was originally published on Dec. 12, 2006. No one would be surprised to learn that last week I went to Washington County Hospital and got my throat slit. What might be revealing is that I asked for it. For the past few years now, I've had a knot on the side of my neck that made it look as if I'd been bitten by a 250-pound mosquito. It didn't bother me in the least, but it almost always made children cry, and stuff.
