Lawrence Humane Society executive director stepping down

It's a highly stressful, gut-wrenching position that will be a challenge to fill.

Lawrence Memorial Hospital agrees to be part of health information network

The article says: "Patients in Kansas who don't want to be part of the exchange have to opt out" - but does not indicate how ones opts out. Does LJW have this info?

Jackie Bunnell: Our dog has been going to HSH twice a week for ove...

Good point. Obviously, it just wigged me out at the time. We kept our dog home for a couple of weeks until things had cleared up. He's since back at HSH twice a week, so he can visit his buddies and blow out all that pent up energy.

Our dog has been going to HSH twice a week for over 5 years. We recently boarded him there for a week - and he came back with coccidia. We had heard rumors that things had gone down hill at HSH - not being properly cleaned. I'd say a case of coccidia confirms those rumors. I'm very disappointed because our dog loves to go there - but I'm going to have very strong reservations about taking him there again, until things improve. Also, I'm one who is frequently asked by others for doggie day care & boarding suggestions. It's gonna be tough to recommend HSH now.

Tweeters gather offline to aid shelter

We at the Lawrence Humane Society are just really, really grateful for all the folks that came out to support the shelter and all the "fuzzies" that need to be fed and cared for, while they await a new home. Many thanks to all!!!

Subject: VIOLATION - MIGRATORY BIRD TREATY ACT

Greg-

We wish to also make the Kansas office of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service aware of this violation. While it may seem like a minor issue to some, I believe that each individual animal often has no recourse but to rely on human counterparts to help protect them.

This morning, one of your workers pruned the maple tree in front of 805 New Hampshire. He blatantly ignored the fact that there was an actively occupied bird's nest in the branch he chose to cut off and discard.

This is a reminder that this is in violation of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (noted below), for which we believe the City of Lawrence and its employees should be held accountable.

The Migratory Bird Treaty Act
This Act, originally passed in 1918, provides protection for migratory birds. Under the Act, it is unlawful to take, import, export, possess, buy, sell, purchase, or barter any migratory bird. Feathers or other parts, nests, eggs, and products made from migratory birds are also covered by the Act. Take is defined as pursuing, hunting, shooting, poisoning, wounding, killing, capturing, trapping, or collecting.

Exceptions:
Migratory bird hunting regulations, established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, allow the taking, during designated seasons, of ducks, geese, doves, rail, woodcock, and some other species. In addition, permits may be granted for various non-commercial activities involving migratory birds and some commercial activities involving captive-bred migratory birds.

Penalties:
Individuals or organizations may be fined up to $5,000 and $10,000 respectively, and may face up to six months imprisonment for misdemeanor violations of the Act. Felony violations may result in fines of up to $250,000 for individuals, $500,000 for organizations, and up to two years imprisonment.
