  • A WORD FROM OUR READERS . . .

    I’m really tired of hearing how the animal shelter is overcrowded with unwanted animals and how they’re going to enforce dog licenses this year for revenue and to help find lost animals (Channel 9 and Kentucky Post Web site).

    I have always got my dogs licensed so they can be found and because it’s the law. I wonder how many elected officials have bought their dog licenses? I’m not just talking this year, but in year’s past? Enforcement should begin at the top.
