Southern Crittenden County News: Nov. 27, 2008

By Michelle Henderson and Matthew T. Patton

The health, safety and general welfare of the residents of this area would improve by significantly reducing the number of stray dogs and cats. Not only is it cruel for the animals, but the town of Dycusburg has also used county funds and donations from several residents to clean up our little village on the river. Unfortunately, stray dogs are ruining the cleaning efforts in the early morning hours before the trash company comes, leaving yards full of garbage for residents to clean up. Help end this vicious cycle of irresponsible pet owners who allow their dogs and cats to run wild and breed uncontrollably by calling the county dog catcher, Rick Winters, at 704-0408.

Happy belated birthday to Rick Holsapple (Nov. 19). Josh Mahns's mother is in the Cancer Treatment Center of America. She loves the facility and staff and highly recommends the place to anyone in a similar situation. They have not only helped treat her disease but also given her hope.

Barbara Ethridge is spending the week with her daughter, Gina Noffsinger and her family in Owensboro celebrating Thanksgiving a little early.

The Dycusburg Community Group has a few t-shirts from the 4th of July and Dycusburg Day available for $5. Contact Michelle Henderson at 988-2758 or to see if your size is still available at this special discount. They won't last long, and might even make a good stocking stuffer!

To share your news, e-mail or call 988-2758.

We wish everyone a healthy and happy Thanksgiving!
