Washington, DC...As we celebrate Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's. federal holiday we thought it was appropriate to share with you his iconic "I Have A Dream" speech. It was delivered on August 28, 1963. We have the full text of the speech and video as well. "I Have a Dream" Speech Text.....I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation. Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity......

Ruger Is Missing Have You Seen Her? (Update...Happy Ending...Ruger was returned)
Posted by: thepinetree on 01/14/2017 07:53 PM
Angels Camp, CA...From a viewer..."We are currently on vacation and we're boarding our dog at The pet Bath House in Angels camp. She jumped the fence and has been missing since 10:30am this morning. I was hoping you could post something if found to please take her back to the kennel. She is a boxer and her name is Ruger. My number is 209 768 3931." Update...(Ruger has been located safe and sound. A good hearted person collected her and kept her safe . Calaveras County Animal Services played an important part in helping out. In all fairness to the kennel owners, they did everything they could in recovering the escaped dog. As it turns out, Ruger can scale most fences and make good her escape better than most ordinary dogs when given the slightest opportunity. Boxers are known "escape artists".
A number of people participated in various ways in this effort for a happy ending.
Ruger is now accounted for. Thanks to all concerned.....")
