The best candidate was not on the ballot

If you’re like me, you’re tired of the election cycle, tired of politics and most of all, tired of political ads.
By the time you arrived at this page, you’ve heard the results (endlessly) of Tuesday night’s election results.
Unfortunately, the best candidate was not on the ballot Tuesday. This candidate could make a real difference in Nashville, Raleigh and Washington, D.C. This candidate could help cut (there is no cure) corruption, money and ineffective leadership.

Nash County Animal Friends’ Notebook

For some time, Nash County Animal Friends has been hoping that a TNR program for feral cats would be developed for our county. We have yet to see it materialize but would be very open to participating in any discussions about developing a program. A program like this would initially require a bit of organization, fundraising and many volunteers but the benefits would be well worth the effort.
