Featured Letter

Victimizing Lamborn

Our Constitution depends on informed American voters with access to honest, reliable and complete information. Yet many generals have lied to us on behalf of our presidents and have tolerated lies by our presidents, including "no boots on the ground" in Syria.

Does this mean that the CIA, our "detached" special forces and U.S. "contractors" in Syria are now wearing sneakers instead of combat boots? Our Vietnam War began with similar American "advisers" whom President Kennedy assured us "are not combat troops in the generally understood sense of the word."

HI MY NAME IS REX
I am a 7 year old, 4 1/2 lb. male Lynx Mini Rex rabbit. Curious, good-natured, and easy-going best describes me. As an indoor bunny, I am litter box trained and enjoy nibbling on a daily diet of hay and fresh greens. My coat is dense, smooth and level with a firm, plush texture so grooming is not necessary. I am very affectionate and love being petted and held. While Rex is hoping to find his new forever home soon, some of his best furry friends at SAFE PLACE FOR PETS are in need of a temporary home with a foster family. For more information about Rex or to find out how you can be a part of our Foster Family Connection please call SAFE PLACE FOR PETS at 719-359-0201 or visit www.safeplacepets.org. Our Pet Adoption Center is located at 1141 Manitou Ave
