BLACKSBURG, Va. – Te Virgin-
ia State Police Bureau of Criminal
Investigation’s Salem Field Ofce
is continuing its eforts to identify
a motive in the murder-suicide
that occurred Dec. 8, 2011, on the
Virginia Tech campus. State police
investigators worked through the
weekend and on into this week
interviewing family, friends and
acquaintances of Ross T. Ashley,
22, in order to piece together his
movements and actions leading
up to the murder of Virginia Tech
Police Ofcer Deriek W. Crouse.
Despite investigators’ non-stop
pursuit of this case, there still
remains no prior connection or
contact between Ashley and Of-
fcer Crouse. Te Virginia State
Police High-Tech Crimes Unit has
been extensively reviewing Ofcer
Crouse’s in-car camera video and
surveillance video from on and
of the campus. State police have
secured surveillance video that
does place Ashley at a local retail
store in the Town of Blacksburg on
Wednesday afternoon (Dec. 7).
Te .40-caliber, semi-automatic
handgun used in both shootings
was legally purchased by Ashley
from a licensed, Virginia gun
dealer. He purchased the weapon
in January 2011. (For more infor-
mation on Virginia law pertaining
to the purchase of a handgun, go
to http://www.vsp.state.va.us/Fire-
arms_PurchaseEligibility.shtm )
Timeline
(Please note that times are ap-
proximate)
12/7/11 - 11:25 a.m. – At gun-
point, Ashley steals a 2011 white
Mercedes SUV from Gilbert Real
Estate in the 600 block of Calhoun
Street in the City of Radford.
12/7/11 - 12:11 p.m. – City of
Radford Police issue multi-state
teletype message to law enforce-
ment for a “Be on the Lookout” for
the stolen Mercedes SUV.
12/7/11 – Later that afternoon,
surveillance video places Ashley
inside a Town of Blacksburg retail-
er. Tis video was not discovered
by investigators until Thursday
Dec. 8 - when they were conduct-
ing their investigation into the
murder-suicide.
12/8/11 – 9:30 a.m. - Te Virginia
Tech Transportation Institute
(VTTI) notifes Blacksburg Police
of an abandoned vehicle parked
on a gravel drive near the VTTI
complex. Police immediately re-
spond, confrm the vehicle is the
stolen Mercedes SUV and notify
Radford Police.
12/8/11 – 12:15 p.m. –Virginia
Tech Police Officer Deriek W.
Crouse has stopped a car in the
Coliseum parking lot along Wash-
ington Street near the intersection
of Spring Road. Ofcer Crouse is
seated inside his unmarked patrol
car when Ashley approaches the
officer and fatally shoots him.
Ashley then flees on foot from
the scene.
12/8/11 – 12:45 p.m. - As law
enforcement search the campus
for the shooting suspect, a Mont-
gomery County Deputy Sheriff
spots a male pedestrian walking
by himself in the “Cage” parking
lot along Duck Pond Drive. As the
deputy drives towards the man, he
momentarily loses sight of him.
When the deputy fnally reaches
the subject, the man is on the
ground and deceased from a self-
inficted gunshot wound.
12/8/11 5:20 p.m. - Outside of
the Greenhouses, police recover
a backpack containing a wool cap
and pullover worn by Ashley at the
time of Ofcer Crouse’s shooting.
At this stage of the investigation,
state police investigators have
found no connection between
Ashley and a handwritten mes-
sage on the wall of one of the
Greenhouses.
Te Virginia State Police, with
the assistance of local and federal
law enforcement, have executed
search warrants during the course
of the investigation. Because this
is still an ongoing investigation,
the warrants remain sealed at this
time.
Virginia State Police has been
assisted during the course of this
active investigation by the Virginia
Tech, Blacksburg, Christiansburg
and Radford City police depart-
ments, Montgomery County
Sheriff ’s Office, FBI and Secret
Service.

When the Holidays
Won’t Light Up
Q:
I bought three strings of exte-
rior holiday lights last year to
decorate the trees in my backyard.
This year, although I put them up
the same way, half the bulbs on one
string won’t light. What’s going
on? — Carol in Cocoa, Fla.
A:
The problem is likely as sim-
ple as a single burned-out light
bulb halfway down the string. Turn
on the lights as you normally do and
locate the first bulb on the string that
will not light up. Mark that bulb with
a small bit of masking tape so you
can find it again, and then unplug the
string.
Go to the box where you stored your
holiday lights and look for a container
or a small plastic bag that contains
replacement bulbs and fuses. Return
to your string, locate the burned-out
bulb, remove it by pulling it firmly
straight out of the socket, and put a
replacement bulb in its place. (The
new bulb must be the same size and
type as the old one.) Plug the string
back in and turn on. If the bulb was the
culprit, the entire string will relight.
If that method doesn’t work, you
may have a fuse issue. Fuses are locat-
ed in each of the plugs. If your strings
are attached end-to-end and the fail-
ure occurs at one of these attachment
points, try removing the old fuse
from the attached end and putting in
a replacement fuse (be sure to unplug
the entire string before doing this, just
to be safe).
Fuse faults can occur when too many
strings are attached end-to-end, over-
loading the circuit. Read the package
instructions to find out the maximum
number of light strings that can be
attached to each other (three strings is
a good limit).

Avoid using
holiday lights
marked “indoor
use only” on the
outside of your
house or in your
yard, for safety reasons. Use exte-
rior lights instead.
Post-Deployment
Brain Tests
Military personnel who served in
Iraq or Afghanistan should have been
given a post-deployment test specific
to Traumatic Brain Injury, in addi-
tion to the standard post-deployment
health assessments.
In 2008, Congress mandated that
all military personnel be given tests
of brain function before and after
being deployed. Initial tests would
set a baseline. The “after” tests would
show differences and discrepancies,
if any, and anyone needing care for
TBI would get it.
National Public Radio, in conjunc-
tion with ProPublica, conducted an
investigation into how all that test-
ing-plus-treatment was working out
for veterans.
What NPR and ProPublica discov-
ered was that while most military per-
sonnel (millions) were given the tests
pre-deployment, few got the tests lat-
er — when it would matter the most.
The test, called Automated Neuro-
psychological Assessment Metric,
either was or wasn’t designed to reveal
TBI, depending on whom you ask.
(But, if the media stories are correct, no
other test was considered because the
Army itself developed the program.)
Some medical types thought that
any test was better than none, espe-
cially if the “after” test was done
quickly. Others wanted to wait until
the “right” test came along, and the
“after” test results were ignored.
The Army wants a good test, of
course, so it wants to compare others
that are available — which will take
years. Meanwhile, how many cases
of mild TBI won’t be diagnosed?

Brain-Testing Program a Debacle”

the article to the companion piece on
ProPublica, “Brain Wars.”

Frederick County Report
Te Middletown Town Council
meeting started of heated on Mon-
day night, as the Council debated
whether to spend $175 to check for
asbestos in the upstairs of the 1880s
section of the Town Hall building.
Te upstairs is used primarily for
storage. Police records and holiday
decorations, among other things,
are stored in the attic in a former
meeting room. Te old section of
the building has leaks, and plaster
is falling from the ceiling.
Various members of the Council
inspected the plaster, and came to
different conclusions. Councilor
Mark Davis, who is renovating an
old home, believes that spending
money to test for asbestos will be
a waste of money the Town does
not have. Following his inspection
of the plaster, Councilor Davis said
there was no reason to test, because
he did not believe it is an asbestos
hazard. If asbestos were to be found
in the building, hazmat rules kick
in, and any cleanup would be very
expensive.
Councilors John Blaisdell and Gil
Barrington argued that the money
would be well spent; whatever the
fnding, the Town needs to deal with
the situation. Tey agreed that if no
testing is done, the Town could face
major liability issues.
Councilor Carl H. Bernhards, Jr.
argued that an inspection of the
plaster showed it be horse-hair
plaster, which is consistent with
an 1880s building, so there will not
be asbestos. Besides, the attic is
used for storage space, not for of-
fces. Councilor Bernhards queried
whether there was an intention to
move ofces to the attic? Councilor
Bernhards noted that, under the
contract presented to Council, the
samples needed to be sent out.
Mayor Mark Brown forcefully
replied that there was no intention
to move ofces upstairs. However,
the Mayor noted that the upstairs
space has active leaks, and water
bulges. Both the walls and ceiling
are plaster. Plastic over some chairs
in storage show how much plaster
is falling. Te Mayor noted “I do
know the danger of asbestos fber.
It cannot be seen nor smelled, but
it kills. I will not take the chance of
a multi-million dollar law suit, or
put someone’s life at rick, for $175.
When a roll call vote was taken,
there was an even split by the Coun-
cil. Mayor Brown, noting that he
only gets to vote on tie votes, voted
to test the samples.
Councilors Bernhards, Davis, and
Donna M.G. Gray voted against the
testing.
Council then voted for a new Vice
Mayor to replace John Owings who
left the Council. In informal discus-
sions, the Council voted to elect
Councilor Charles H. Harbaugh,
IV. When a roll call vote was taken,
Councilors Barrington, Blaisdell,
and Davis voted against the election.
Councilor Harbaugh is the new Vice
Major.
Things remained testy as the
Council received the Treasurer’s
report from Councilor Bernhard.
The report itself was uneventful,
but the issue of bank fees arose. Te
question was the diference charged
by First Bank and BB&T. Councilor
Bernhards tried to explain the dif-
ference, but was told by the Mayor
that he was to provide a full report
at the Committee Meeting. When
Councilor Bernhards tried to coun-
ter the Mayor, the Mayor issued a
“call to order” order, and moved
on.
Councilor Bernhards noted that
the last election for a Town Coun-
cil seat was held at Middletown
Elementary, instead of at Town
Hall. Te invoice from the Frederick
County Board of Elections was for
$2,131.51. Councilor Bernhards be-
lieves the Town saved approximately
$4,000.
Another point of contention was
the annual audit for the 2009/10
fiscal year. Councilor Bernhards
explained that the audit was taking
some time. Mayor Brown wanted to
know what was taking so long with
the audit, noting that we are com-
ing up on tax time again. Councilor
Gray wanted to know whether the
2010/11 was scheduled, noting that
the Town is very behind. Councilor
Bernhards said the next audit has
not been scheduled. Mayor Brown
again noted his concern about the
time the audit was taking, and said
he did not want to rehire the frm,
if the Council was not happy with

their audit.
Councilor Gray noted that the
Council normally starts the year au-
dit once the books are closed for that
year. She inquired whether another
auditor could start on the 2010/11
audit. Councilor Bernhards said the
Council had delayed the audit in
order to hire a new frm; he believes
the delay is due to actions taken by
both the Town and the frm.
Councilor Davis tried to recap,
saying that part of the “confusion”
was that the Council had talked in-
formally about changing its audits to
every other year, since the audits are
expensive, and not required every
year. He reminded the Council that
they had changed auditors to get a
“new set of eyes.”
Bids for the repair of the water
pipes on Church Street, between
3rd and 4th Streets were presented
to the Council. The low bid for
the repairs was from G. B. Foltz
Contracting, Inc. Superintendent
of Public Works Donald Rifey said
the company is a large one, comes
well-recommended and is woman-
owned. Councilor Bernhrds noted
that the Council budgeted enough
money to pay for supplies and mate-
rial, in addition to the Foltz contract
for labor. Te Council unanimously
approved the contract.
Police Chief R. Phillip Breeden
reported that the forces recent
hire decided not to go back into
law enforcement. Te Chief hired
Enrique Lazarte, who is fresh from
the Police Academy, for the open-
ing on the force. Peruvian “Rico”
is bilingual and is in great demand
since there are no bilingual ofces
in most of the counties and towns
surrounding Middletown. Chief
Breeden noted that “requests to
borrow Rico are almost as great as
those to borrow Trooper,” the Town
drug-snifng dog.
Te Planning and Zoning Com-
mittee again noted that no one has
applied for any of its vacancies. Any-
one interested should contact Town
Hall. Te Committee will not have a
work session this month. Its meet-
ing will be on December 19th.
On December 4, the Frederick
County Board of Supervisors will
review, and may vote on, a revised
Trafc Mitigation and Control Plan
for the Reliance Road adjustment.
A fat, yellow lab with a red col-
lar was found wandering around
Middletown. It was brought to the
Frederick County SPCA.
St. Tomas Church will have a
concert at 7 pm, on December 17th.
Te concert is free, although dona-
tions will be accepted.
Mayor Brown bid a fond adieu to
Town Lawyer Stephen Butler, who
has served the Town for 37 years.
Mr. Butler is retiring at the end of
the year. Mr. Butler said he has en-
joyed serving Middletown, and that
all of the parties he has worked with
in Town have always put the Town
ahead of self.
January 3, 2012 at 7 pm, will be
the next Work Session.
January 17, 2012 at 7 pm will be
the next Committee Meeting.
February 15, 2012 at 7 pm will
be the July 4th Committee kick-of
meeting.
Mayor Brown praised Councilor
Harbaugh and his friends for once
again installing a Christmas tree
on Reliance Road. Since the tree is
lit by gas generator, the Mayor said
anyone wanting to donate to the
cost of the tree can contact Town
Hall.
Does the sound of train
whistles take you back?

Owners Margaret and Steve
Querolo of Shenandoah Beauty
Academy, located at 629 East
Main Street in Berryville, have
announced that they are in the
process of enrolling students for
next September.
“Our main purpose is to pre-
pare and train students to suc-
cessfully complete licensing and
examination requirements in
Cosmetology for careers in the
beauty industry,” said Margaret,
who is also the Academy’s direc-
tor and teacher of cosmetology.
Teir goal is to inspire stu-
dents with a nurturing environ-
ment that will maximize their
students’ potential to become
beauty industry professionals
of exceptional quality and the
teacher-training program trains
students and former students to
become cosmetology teachers,
as well. “We Believe the Future
belongs to those Who Believe in
the Beauty of their Dreams” is the
philosophy behind the school’s
success.
So far, they are reaching or ex-
ceeding those goals and their phi-
losophy appears to be a factor.
“Academy students have won
numerous hair styling, make-
up and manikin display design
awards at local, district and state
levels,” Margaret stated.
Students created the award-
winning fashion designs during
the hair and fashion week work-
shop held at the Academy.
New courses are also being
added for next year. Fall’s cur-
riculum will include Nail Tech-
nology, barbering and esthetician
courses.
Te school has something for
every customer.
“I love the professional envi-
ronment and love the fact that
the students have learned how
not to get me soaking wet. My
perms always turn out so beauti-
ful,” said satisfed customer Mrs.
Hutchinson. And Mr. Hender-
son added, “Te students always
give me great haircuts and beard
trims.”
Te lollipop reward is an in-
centive for seven-year-old Tom-
my Alexander who testifed that
he loves coming to SBA to get his
haircut because of the treat.
Margaret is highly qualifed in
her chosen feld. She has an asso-
ciate’s degree in cosmetology, has
been a licensed cosmetologist for
45 years and holds a Technical
Professional License Certifcate.
She was also a teacher in the
Loudoun County public school
system for thirty years.
She has numerous professional
awards in the feld of cosmetol-
ogy and education and received
the Certifcate of Achievement
Award from the American Can-
cer Society’s “Look Good Feel
Better Program.”
She also received the VATIE
Tirty Year Service Award from
the Virginia Association of Trade
and Industrial Education and
holds an Advanced Consultant
Certifcation for various cosmetic
companies.
Specials for customers right
now include great deals on regu-
lar and spiral perms for both short
and long hair, and manicures and
pedicures.
School hours to the public are
by appointment only.
Tey are: Tursday – Friday
from 10 a.m. to 3:00 pm. and Sat-
urdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Holiday Weight-Gain Myth
Is Bunk, Scientists Say
The common assumption that people
put on 5 pounds over the holidays has
been studied and actually found to
be a myth, according to scientists at
Vanderbilt University. In fact, weight
gain from Thanksgiving through New
Year’s is, on average, closer to three-
quarters of a pound to 1 pound.
And while this doesn’t sound as dras-
tic, what typically happens with obe-
sity is that people gain weight slowly
and keep it on, said Vanderbilt obesity
expert Roger Cone, Ph.D., professor
and chairman of Molecular Physiol-
ogy & Biophysics.
“It’s not just overeating at holidays.
We are chronically overeating and
under-exercising in this country,”
Cone said. “And what happens then is
your weight gradually creeps up.”
“If we do become obese, it’s because
there is a minor difference between
what we are consuming and what we
are burning,” he said. “So the trick is
to try to match your energy expendi-
ture with your energy intake, to try to
control your diet overall and keep it
healthy, and to try to up your activity
until the two are in balance.”
Obesity leads to health-care costs
that are 36 percent higher, on average,
and a 77 percent increase in medica-
tion costs.
Liz Aleman, Healthy Children’s pro-
gram manager for Monroe Carell Jr.
Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, said
obesity is the result of poor choices
and behaviors more than genetics and
metabolism, which means there is a lot
a person can do to fight obesity.
Focus beyond the Thanksgiving table
and holiday overeating. The struggle
with obesity is year-round.

Tips for Healthier Eating
• Drink more water throughout meals
to help feel fuller, quicker.
• Be careful with portions (one-half
plate should be fruits and vegetables,
one-fourth proteins and one-fourth
grains.)
• Take a long walk after a meal; it is
good for digestion and will make you
feel better.
• Cook healthy versions of traditional
recipes by using resources such as eat-
betteramerica.com and mypyramid.
gov.
• Use whole grains instead of white
for making bread, stuffing and pasta.
• Substitute applesauce for oil when
making baked goods such as cookies
and cakes.
• Use herbs instead of salt to add fla-
vor to food.
• Adults should exercise 30 minutes a
day, which can be divided into 10-min-
ute segments if necessary.
• Use local produce whenever pos-
sible. It tends to maintain its nutrients
longer than produce that has traveled
long distances.

Te stylists at For Mei Beauty
Salon at 831 Green Street in
Stephen City believe in bring-
ing out the best feature in their
clients. Along with a full line of
beauty services they ofer some
that aren’t usually found in rural
areas.
“Our goal is to be the favorite
salon for fashion-forward, fam-
ily-focused or for those teetering
in between,” Toni said.
Te name itself carries in it the
philosophy of the business. Te
word “Me” in Latin is “Mei”. Toni
explained that, “Beauty is in ev-
eryone, but not everyone sees it
in themselves, and when people
leave here, they feel beautiful
themselves.”
People tell her “We’re so glad
you’re here,” because they ofer
specialized services that they’d
have to go out of the area like
Manassas, D. C. or Maryland to
fnd. “But they can get that right
here now,” she added.
A partial list of services usu-
ally found closer to the city in-
cludes Brazilian blowouts, braids,
weaves, perms, relaxers and full
or partial fusion extensions. “Ce-
lebrities use fusion extensions
because they last somewhere
between six and eight months,”
Toni said.
And clients can receive a 15
percent discount during the holi-
days just by mentioning where
they heard about it when they
come in for an appointment.
Toni invites everyone to come
in to “experience ‘For Mei Beauty’
for yourself to discover for you,
beauty.”
For Mei Salon opened in Ste-
phens City in July but Toni has
been a stylist for 24 years. She
is originally from Maryland and
grew up in California. Her hus-
band Edward Fife, who pastors
Calvary Chapel in Winchester
is originally from Virginia. Tey
moved to Stephens City nine
years ago where she started styl-
ing hair in her home.
Eventually her son Ian became
a stylist and they decided to open
For Mei Salon and added Ashley
Adcock to their styling team.
She said her clients like the
new place and that they are en-
joying a steady business. Many of
their clients were with her during
the years she styled hair in her
home.
Toni is also a licensed Cosme-
tology instructor with Jamison
Valerie Salon and Beauty Acad-
emy. She plans to open a beauty
school one door down from her
shop by the fall of next year.
Toni is also a Registered Nurse,
a licensed Real Estate agent with
Keller Williams in Winchester
and a Christian counselor.

Sweet facts
Candy canes are very popular holiday treats and are of-
ten used to decorate Christmas trees. Tat hooked shape
certainly makes them whimsical and able to hang on tree
boughs. But candy canes weren’t always the curved and col-
orful treats they are today. In the 1700s, candy canes were
nothing more than straight white sticks of sugar candy used
to decorate Christmas trees. A choirmaster at Cologne Ca-
thedral decided that having the ends bent to depict a shep-
herd’s crook and passing them out during church services
would help keep children quiet. It was not until roughly the
20th century that candy canes acquired their red stripes.
Some surmise that the candy cane is shaped like a shepherd’s
crook to represent Jesus Christ, who tended to his fock of
supporters. Others say that it’s a “J” for Jesus. Regardless of
their shape, hundreds of thousands of candy canes are now
manufactured and shipped for the holiday season each year.

Bob Claytor, President of H.N.
Funkhouser & Company, and a
1965 graduate of James Wood
High School, continues to give
back to his community. On Tues-
day, Bob and Ken Rice, Execu-
tive Vice President and Chief
Operating Ofcer of Funkhouser
presented each of the twenty
Frederick County Public School
principals with a check for $500.
Te grant money is to be used for
science and math programs.
Each year since 2001, Ken
has organized the grants for the
FCPS. Under the Exxon/Mobile
Educational Alliance, each school
with an Exxon/Mobile within
its school district is eligible for
the grant. Tis year, Funkhouser
chipped in to give grant money
to the four schools without an
Exxon
According to Ken, “Exxon is a
great company that is focused on
helping its local communities.”
Te company targets the science
and math departments because
“Exxon has plenty of job openings
for geologists and other scientists
but cannot fnd trained people to
fll the positions.” Ken says that
welders out west are “making
$150,000 year, working in the gas
industry.”
Since 2001, the FCPS system
has received almost $100,000
from the program. Mark Whittle,
principal at Admiral Byrd Middle
spoke on behalf of all of the
principals when he praised the
program for its ease, seeing as
Ken does most of the work and
its fexibility. Te principals can
use the money as they think best
for their school.
John Nelson, principal at She-
rando High, will be giving his
grant to the head of the Science
Department. Sherando is having
an increased enrollment in its
AP physics program; John said
most of the money will be used
to buy additional lab equipment
to supplement its current labs.
Carrie Butler, principal at Mill-
brook High used her grant money
last year to buy additional labs for
the AP physics program. Tis year
Carrie will use the grant money
for Millbrook’s AP chemistry pro-
gram. Last year there was no AP
chemistry class at Millbrook. Tis
year there are fourteen students.

It was American inventor and busi-
nessman Tomas Alva Edison who made
the following sage observation: “Oppor-
tunity is missed by most people because
it comes dressed in overalls and looks like
work.”
•••
If you’re planning a trip to Peru to ring
in the new year, you might want to bring
along some yellow underwear. In that
country it’s considered lucky to wear it
on the frst day of the new year.
•••
Another story to add to the file on
clueless criminals: In 2010, two men in
Portland, Ore., went to a supermarket and
started removing price tags from items
and flling their backpacks with the loot.
However, they didn’t even make it out
of the store with their ill-gotten gains. It
seems that the would-be crooks decided
to do their shoplifting during a “Shop
With a Cop” promotion, and there were
60 police ofcers already in the store -- in
uniform.
•••
You may be surprised to learn that the
Statue of Liberty is not located in New
York. While it is on Liberty Island in New
York Harbor, it’s technically within the
territorial waters of Jersey City, N.J.
•••
If you’re going to be traveling to Cali-
fornia anytime soon, you might want to
keep this in mind: In that state, shooting
game from a moving vehicle is illegal --
unless the animal you’re aiming for is a
whale.
•••
A baseball will travel farther on a hot
day than on a cold one.
•••
Te oldest bakery yet uncovered was
found by archaeologists digging in the
Egyptian city of Giza in 2002. Tey say
that the baking trays, bread molds and
ovens there date back to 2500 B.C., right
around the time the pyramids were being
built.

Yes, You Can Aford a Pet
Tose of us who have pets know the
benefts of pet ownership. Tere’s just
something very physically and emo-
tionally positive about owning a cat or
dog, and the research literature is full
of proof.
We generally have lower blood pres-
sure because pets reduce stress and
anxiety. Maybe it’s the soft fur to pet,
the funny antics or the happy welcome
when we come home, but we’re happier
and better able to fend of depression.
We’re also in better shape, more active
and physical, because of the care we need
to give: walking, throwing toys, feeding,
bending to put down food and water,
daily brushing.
Limited incomes can come into play,
however. If you have a pet but are con-
sidering giving it up because of the cost
of pet food, wait. All across the country
there are local groups that can help you
keep your pet. Some will help fnancially
if the cost of food is too much. Others
will help with the cost of veterinary care.
One group will even take care of your
pet if you go into the hospital. Other
groups will match seniors with pets and
provide help.
If you receive Meals on Wheels or
another program, they often have pet
food they can deliver too. Your frst calls
should be to the local humane society, the
pet store or the veterinarian: Tey’re the
ones most likely to know about programs
available in your area. Or go online and
search for “pet food assistance” and put
in your town and state.
If you don’t have a pet, consider start-
ing the New Year with an adult pet that’s
outgrown the puppy/kitten stage and
needs someone to love. It will be good
for both of you!

Milo
Hi! I’m Milo! I’m a calm, tolerant boy
who really wants a home of my own.
I am good with dogs, cats, and kids
so I’m really an easy guy to wel-
come into your home! Apparently,
my previous owner let me get very
flea infested so I had some hair loss,
but now most of my hair has grown
back. Even though I’m around 40 pounds, I really like to be
in your lap. I sleep soundly in my crate all night and I LOVE
getting treats. I know how to sit and my foster parents are
working on teaching me more. I have been at the shelter for
a while now and am wondering why no one wants me...the
only thing I can think of is I am not a puppy--I am probably
around 10 years old but don’t let that scare you--I’m no old
man! I’ve got the whole second half of my life to live! Won’t
you adopt me so I can have a home for the holidays?
