In 1963, the television cartoon series Rocky & Bullwinkle aired a segment in which a fictional university, Wossamotta U, decides it can solve its financial and enrollment problems by creating a successful football team.
When the question arises of how to pay for it, the answer is, "How else - we'll fire a few English teachers."
Fifty years later, life is imitating cartoon art.

To the Editor: Dog shelter full of furry friends

I am a member of the new volunteer group at the Wood County Dog Shelter in Bowling Green. Everyday stray dogs are brought in to the shelter from all over the county. Almost all of them are very nice, adoptable dogs. I can't understand why, when owners realize their dogs have gone missing, they don't visit the shelter to see if the dog is there? I realize in some cases the dogs are intentionally abandoned on the rural country roads, and others are surrendered to or left at the shelter, but I would think most of the dogs brought in as strays have a family somewhere missing them. Please, if your dog runs away or is otherwise missing, please call or better yet, visit the shelter to see if he or she is there waiting for you.

I've been reading with amusement the sparkling repartee between Dr. Feeman and his numerous detractors; and while I'm not qualified to comment on his non-peer reviewed "studies,"I will take issue with some of his pronouncements on the issue of firearms. First he asserts that if our elected officials pass a stand-your-ground law, the streets will run red with blood. This inspite of the fact that states with this type of law have experienced no major bloodbaths to date. They have, however, experienced a drop in violent crime.
Dr. Feeman's asserts that, "many of the killers of our citizens are apparently stable people who, for one reason or another, just snap and if they have a gun in their hands will shoot someone..." This claim is particularly revealing. To a gun-ban fanatic, a firearm is not an inanimate object, but rather a living, breathing force of evil.
