Ryan Richardson: Preventing heat stroke can save your pet's life

Ann Leach: A truck for sale demonstrates how to chase dreams
My neighbor is selling a pretty sharp Ford truck. It is sitting in front of his house and is adorned with signs indicating its availability, along with a contact number for more information.
Rich Brown: Local church participates in national campaign to treat malaria
