Dear Bay Weekly:
    I enjoyed reading Peggy Traband’s story about Mr. Owl [Creature Feature, April 14: http://bit.ly/gZhs2Z], who was rescued from Sudwell-Nutley Rd.

    Just wanted to tell you that Companion Canines for Independence fundraiser Sails & Tails on April 9 was a smashing success. Everyone was happy, and we grew a lot from last year. Next year we’ll grow even more. Already thinking and planning.

Dear Bay Weekly:
    Your Home and Garden Guide [March 31] was a great edition, practical and perfect this time of year.

Now I want to try the purple Gita bean the Bay Garden wrote about, if he can tell me where to find them.
