    Cat breeding
    season is upon us

        According to a study published in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, feral and free-roaming domestic cats have their highest pregnancy rates in March, April and May each year. 
        In the study, female cats had an average of 1.4 litters per year with an average of 3 kittens per litter.  The study also found that 75% of these kittens were dead or missing within 6 months.

  • The Mothers Mountain March

    By James F. Burns
    Retired professor
    University of Florida

        What’s the nicest thing you can give a working wife with children on Mother’s Day?  Answer—a week off, a week away from alarm clocks, cooking, cleaning, laundry, lunches, and endless to-do lists.  I have given my wife this gift for forty years.  What she did with it was surprising.

  • Fighting back against Trump’s poison

        I hope the “Trump Christians” noticed that their “God’s choice” president was directly caught in a blatant lie this past week. Rudy Giuliani only had to speak once and proved that Trump has been lying all along about Stormy Daniels.

  • Republicans need a new party symbol

        The great advantage I have over Rick Howell, who writes The Liberal Agenda, is that I’m not a political party hack. As a good “Democratic” Party activist, he is bound to take a “my party, right or wrong” attitude, defending whatever the party does.

    Preserve the music hall

        As a new Bedford City resident, I can’t tell you how thrilled my husband and I were when we found out that our little town of Bedford had an Orchestra.

  • Herbs are superb for the garden

    By Sue Becker
    Bedford Extension Master Gardener

        Herbs are terrific plants to grow, even for gardeners with the blackest of thumbs.  They are generally tough, and if planted in the right place, can often provide lasting enjoyment throughout the years.

  • Time to curb America’s gun madness

        Given the political upheaval after the Florida school shooting, there is reason to hope that the gun madness in this culture might be on its last legs.
        First, we’ll need this fall’s blue wave of Democratic victories to take back the House, and maybe even the U.S. Senate. As long as too many Republicans both support the gun-worship agenda, and live in fear of an NRA-sponsored primary challenge, they won’t budge.

  • I finally got a rise out of him

        I love to needle liberals! It’s so easy as most of them have that combination of self-righteousness and anger that makes them easy to antagonize. I often do this on Facebook. I have some liberal Facebook friends and I sometimes jump in on one of their threads, make a comment and watch the fun as their angry friends go ballistic. Replies that I have received have included obscenities and personal threats.
