Due to their intelligence and extended lifespan, parrots can b

CSR Sauvetage Felins endeavours to maintain healthy community cat colonies supported by the public and municipalities. Cat colonies, a more humane and less costly solution, also help control rodents, which are a principal vector for illnesses.

Photo by Tara Fitzgerald I needed an attitude adjustment. I'd been sad, I mean heartbroken, deep in your bones sad, for too long.

Pine Lake Dear Editor, It is time for a contest to rename Pine Lake. So my entry is, ‘The Garden of Weeden.’ This would bring biblical scholars from around the world to view firsthand the site of a disaster! They will come, they will shop, and they will buy...a veritable BOOM to the economy of Hudson – and it's all in a name change! Perhaps, Pine Lake will become a World Heritage Site because of its new name. Al Jared Hudson
