Fortunately, cash registers make the change these days, since half of our high school students can't seem to add, subtract, multiply or divide. Much of this does have to do with family issues and lack of concern for education, but let's face it - standardized tests are not the problem. Let's end social promotion and keep kids in the early grades where they belong until they can read and write.

Consider the source - these people are so desperate to get their vicious dogs back, they will do and say anything. They are incapable of keeping other people's dogs safe from theirs, so they want to deflect from that fact by complaining about the shelter. I have a dog and I am an animal lover, and I hate to see dogs put down because their owners are stupid. But they allowed their dogs to get out and kill someone else's dog. And that was their THIRD attack. Their credibility is pretty low. I know the full time animal control officers and I doubt they torture or mistreat dogs.

These people are clearly nuts. The dogs bit three other dogs and killed one of them - but they are great dogs and not dangerous?? How would Lindsey feel if these dogs were out being walked and were attacked and killed? These people are amazingly selfish and clearly not the kind of people who should be allowed to own animals other than maybe hamsters.

Nice family. They do not seem to care in the least what the dogs did and that it's THEIR fault. The son is feeling sorry for himself and the father is acting like an idiot, screaming at the son in court. The daughter is off hiding the dogs. And right there, Carol Falotico, who caused all of this, suddenly demanding that the dogs be turned over IMMEDIATELY. Way to try to cover up your mess, Carl. I feel sorry for the dogs who had to deal with these people.

It's not up to Carl whether they have an attorney or not. That's up to the judge. Their attorney had to know that something would happen and he should have found someone to take his place while he was away. They're just looking to keep this going and waste time.

That's the problem with the thinking (if you could call it that) of the council - every little bit adds up. And the pension costs are outrageous. Again - why do we need a police chief, a fire chief and Wayne Double Dipper Bennett????

Brilliant!! Great job, Carl. Perhaps Judge Loyola will get pissed off and hold them in contempt and throw you off the case. You should be fired.

Gary McCarthy has NO business being the mayor of anything. The city is a filthy mess. Half the people here don't shovel, forcing pedestrians into the street all winter long. There are so many derelict property it's not believable. Many, many properties for sale. I have been here 15 years and it has gotten WORSE, not better. Other than the downtown area, there has been no improvement. The casino is seen as the savior but that's a fantasy. Let's raise taxes and maybe ALL the working people will leave. Then Gary and the council will be left to pay all the taxes and license all the thousands of unlicensed dogs.
