    That was the comment from my husband last Tuesday night, Feb. 28. Wow! Was he correct! WAVE 3 had three meteorologists analyzing and reporting what they knew about the storm, throughout the night. They were providing the general public with times, areas, and expectations. Their timeline was impeccable.

    What can you do?
    At this point there is not a new bill being voted on, addressing animal cruelty. Therefore, you may feel your hands are tied. However, you can begin to make some noise to start the much-needed process.
