To pet owners, our furry friends are people too.

We go through the joys of raising them much like we do our children—and in return, they bring us endless happiness and unconditional love. We learn our pets' individual characters and adore them for their quirks and unique personalities.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Hits the London Stage

Just days into its relatively lengthy run in nearby London, Ontario, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is already earning rave reviews! The musical comedy will be on stage at the beautiful and historic Grand Theatre through April 12, giving you plenty of time to make the journey to “The Forest City.”

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee promises to have audiences in S-T-I-T-C-H-E-S when six young people in the throes of adolescence compete for the spelling championship of a lifetime.

Cantor Calls For Economic Reform, School Choice in Lecture

Cantor Calls For Economic Reform, School Choice in Lecture

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, a leading proponent of school choice, addressed education, health care and other pressing national issues in the House Republican Party’s four-point policy agenda as featured speaker at the Daemen College Distinguished Leaders Lecture Series held March 10.

Introduced by Congressman Chris Collins, Cantor emphasized an “American That Works” plan in response to major challenges being faced today largely by the middle class.

“Many have lost faith in our nation and in the American dream. The American people deserve better and that’s why the House Republican leadership’s number one issue is to restore an America that works,” said Cantor, a six-term Virginia congressman.

Cantor pointed to the “middle-class squeeze” brought on by minimal wage growth and rising costs in making it harder for middle-class families to make ends meet. “Three out of four Americans are living paycheck to paycheck,” he said.
