I am worried for the safety of my mom. We live on Old Finchville Road, and there are packs of dogs running around our street. My mom lives 2 houses down from me and is scared to even walk to her mailbox.
I have called every official in our city for months and could not get anything done. I called and called and called our dog warden, and every time he would ask me if the dogs were aggressive. When you have a pack of dogs running around in your neighborhood, are you suppose to walk up to the dogs to see if they are aggressive?
I was told animal control officers were patrolling our streets. But yet I see these dogs every day, and I find it so strange that they don’t.
I called our county judge-executive, our police, our county prosecuting attorney, and most of the time no one would even call me back.
My mom had a cat, and since my dad died, she has been so afraid that these dogs would kill her cat. When she got home one Saturday morning, her cat was lying bit in half in her yard, the dogs tore up her cat.
I called the sheriff and asked what if it had been my mom lying in the yard, would they do something then? He said it was a dog warden issue.
When I called animal control again and told them what the dogs had done to mom’s cat, I was asked the same question: Are they aggressive?
The elected officials in our town don’t care. My mom can’t even go out in her yard. We live 1 mile from town. There is a dog ordinance. This has been going on for months.
Please help us.
Impressed again by theater
I wrote a letter to the editor awhile back in regard to the inappropriate language concerning a play at the Shelby County Community Theatre. I am now very pleased to write that the production of Cinderellawas a great delight. I again took my granddaughters; and it was a pleasure to share the experience of this play with them. The acting, the music, the whole presentation was so much fun and entertaining; a fantastic job of talent and hard work.
I am so glad we have the Shelby County Community Theatre and the quality of this last production.
Lots of help for reunion
Thank you so much to everyone who helped make the Shelby County High School Class of 1986 reunion a success! The Shelbyville Country Club was the perfect setting, and The Lodge featuring Barrel Smoked BBQ served phenomenal food.
Through a live auction, we were able to raise enough money to make a donation to our fellow classmate, Casey Phillips, whose son Robbie is receiving treatment for a severe brain injury. That would not have been possible without the donations and support of numerous individuals and businesses.
I would also like to thank everyone involved in making the entrance to The Lodge handicapped accessible. We had a problem with a power wheelchair not being able to make it in through the handicapped entrance the night of the reunion because of a raised threshold, and I am proud to report that the problem has been solved.
Harper Fouts Kelly, who is a member of both the class of 1986 and the Shelbyville Country Club, wrote a letter to the board explaining the problem with the entrance, and less than a week later they found someone to build it.
A very special thanks to Stanley Fister, who donated his time and materials to make sure that allare welcome at The Lodge. Just another of the many reasons that Shelby County and the SCHS class of 1986 rock!
