  • Don't call me if a neighbor shoots your dog or cat

    Please don’t call me if your neighbor shoots your dog or poisons your cats. Call law enforcement and if they can’t do anything about it, then I can’t either. For one thing, I am not getting in the middle of a dispute between neighbors. Second, if I interview one neighbor, then I have to interview the other, which never ends well. Third, we don’t have an investigative reporter or other resources.
