  • Humane Society needs donations

    To the editor:
    I am writing to request that your readers remember the Humane Society of Harrison County in their end of the year giving. It is particularly important as 2012 draws to a close because we have been informed that due to budget cuts we will not be receiving the generous American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals grant that we were given in 2011. With the help of that grant the Humane Society of Harrison County was able to pay for or sponsor almost 400 spaying and neuters in 2012.

  • Don’t fall victim to holiday scammers

    ‘Tis the season.
    Yes siree. Gifting. Baking. Decorating. Sharing. Scamming.
    Huh?
    That’s right. It’s one of the busiest times of the year for cheating thy neighbor.
    Well, maybe not neighbor precisely, but certainly cheating others.
    We are supposed to be living a Hallmark movie at this time of year. You know, no stress, perfect children, plenty of money for gift-buying; that’s the Hallmark life. Right?
    Then why is the Better Business Bureau warning about scams and bogus bargains?
