My favorite watering hole, the fountain at The Pleasance on South Main Street, is out of commission for a bit. The main stem has rusted out after these many years, and work is underway to repair it. I’m feeling mighty thirsty these hot summer days (yes, summer officially started on Sunday!) so hopefully, it won’t be long before the fountain is bubbling over again.

My back arched and my tail stood up straight last week when I heard about two acts of vandalism at Sandy Ground playgrounds, built in the tri-state area to honor each woman and child killed on 12/14. In another show of love winning over evil, however, both senseless acts have been turned on their head. Nelba Marquez-Greene has said that she would like to have a message board installed at the playground in Hartford honoring her daughter, Ana Marquez-Greene.

For those who are concerned about the welfare of the pets affected by last week’s tornado that laid low the town of Moore, Okla. and surrounding area, Reed Intermediate School student Aubrey Christensen is coming to the rescue.
Aubrey and her mother, Nicole, have set up collection boxes at Your Healthy Pet, 224 South Main Street, and at the Parks and Recreation office, Town Hall South, Main Street, for donations of pet food, cat litter, and leashes.
