Dear Bay Weekly: Just wanted to let you know I was quite shocked and thrilled when I walked into Safeway to get my copy of Bay Weekly [No. 34: Aug. 26] and saw my cat Rascal on the front cover. My kids were thrilled, too! Thanks so much! –Charlotte Sanders, Chesapeake Beach
Dear Bay Weekly: We are thrilled with the story on Friends of Felines [Scratching Out a Home in the Woods]. We can’t thank you enough. We have had calls from people wanting to know who does trap, neuter, release and maintain in Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties. Who knows? Maybe we’ve really got some momentum going. Thanks again. –Carol Hall for Friends of Felines
Dear Bay Weekly: We loved the pets issue of Bay Weekly [Aug. 26]. Having six cats and a German shepherd, we had to take turns reading the stories. The Bay Gardener’s Maine coon cat sounds like a real character … sort of like pets and humans resembling one another. Three of my six are also Maine coons. You’ll see two of them in the enclosed photos of our cats. –Marilyn Harmon, Shady Side
Dear Bay Weekly: Congratulations on the Voting Edition [Primary Primer, Sept. 9]. Excellent. My wife and I thought your comments were right on, and we were very impressed. –Mick Blackistone, Fairhaven
Dear Bay Gardener:
Dear Bay Weekly: Lola loved Pet Tales for the Dog Days of Summer (Aug. 26), even though as the dog of two staffers she was banned from the photo competition. She carried the issue around with her for about 30 minutes — until it finally fell apart in her mouth. –Margaret and Tom Tearman, Huntingtown
It’s a long way from the war in the Middle East to the Patuxent River. But that is where a number of our brave and wounded veterans found themselves on August 7. On that day, the U.S. Power Squadrons of Northern Virginia, Rockville and the Patuxent River hosted a Wounded Warrior Cruise for veterans who are recovering from their wounds at the Walter Reed and Fort Belvoir medical facilities.
Dear Bay Weekly: Federal officials have determined that SeaWorld is at fault in the death of trainer Dawn Brancheau and issued citations for three safety violations, including one for willfully exposing employees to life-threatening hazards. A willful violation is defined as one committed with plain indifference to or intentional disregard for employee safety and health. SeaWorld was fined $75,000.
