A home birth in Jane’s animal family

VERNON COUNTY - To think I once called Dr. Miller, a local veterinarian, and innocently asked her, "How do I get my cat pregnant?" Dr. Miller is retired now. I can imagine her repeating this story to her friends on a golf course-that is, if she's the golfing kind of retired veterinarian.

Flood flashbacks

GAYS MILLS - It was nearly impossible to avoid seeing and hearing the disaster coverage last week. It was also hard to watch and hear the news. It still is. Very good reporting continues on the ongoing recovery. Hurricane Harvey, and then the flooding it caused when it didn't move on like a regular storm, was awful to behold. The coverage is and was extensive and matches the size of the catastrophe.

‘Crazy for books’ annual book cleanse

VERNON COUNTY - It's happening, the event of the year that could last for four months, while making my house look like a tornado hit. I'm cleaning and reorganizing my books, bookshelves, book trunk, and any stray books that have found their way under the couch or bed. A bulldozer would be useful, but I have only my arms and they can carry only so many books at a time.
