Ask Howard • 02-09-18

How to do the wrong thing right Blow a kiss up to heaven, bois and girlz, for eternally grim and gray, truncated February’s firmament this year has miraculously aligned.

Pet of the week • 02-09-18 • STARSKY

Meet Starsky, a 5-year-old cream Labrador mix weighing 65 pounds. He’s a playful, fun guy with lots of energy once he gets to know you. He’s a little shy around new people at first, but bring a few treats and you’ll be friends in no time.
