Today's Features

  • The Williston Veterinary Clinic in cooperation with Merial, a company that produces pharmaceutical and biological products for dogs, cats and other animals, has recently sponsored a program that gives money back to worthy causes. The program is called Paws for Charity and gives money back for Frontline, a product that controls fleas and tickets, and Heartgard, a product that prevents heartworm disease and controls hookworms and roundworms, that are sold.

    Williston Veterinary Clinic chose the Williston Animal Group as the recipient of the money that was given back by Merial.

  • It can be difficult finding things to write about in this column when I haven't made any trips to some different wildlife area. Winter can also pose a challenge even in Florida, because many plants have gone to seed and birds are not migrating through or nesting.

    One flock of birds is migrating now, made late by weather conditions. The whooping cranes, accompanied by their human escort, will be traveling through our area. By the time this column is published they may already be in Crystal River, their winter home. It seems they will have little time before heading north again.

  • The chilly January days make most of us want to cook or bake and eat foods we refer to as comfort foods; something that one might say makes you feel "warm and fuzzy" all over. These are dishes that will evoke a memory from childhood or of a special person or past event which helps to create that "warm and fuzzy" feeling.

    ESE parent panel to sponsor workshop

  • In selecting a topic for this week I did some soul searching about how and why I, as a senior citizen, find it difficult to stick to any New Year's resolution regarding a diet plan or new healthy eating habits and exercise. Any nutritionist or doctor will tell you that dieting is pretty much a "quick fix", most of the time, and then the pounds return once you reach your goal weight and slowly slip back into your old eating habits. Changing your eating habits and developing a reasonable exercise program are the keys to successful weight loss and keeping it off.

  • Ever since the Frisbee went into production in 1957, the plastic platter has been a popular play toy for dogs. The animals have shown natural athleticism by leaping great heights to catch a flying disc thrown by their owners.
