Roadside Puppy Sales Continue - Ordinance Takes Effect Today

Local News, Notes and Events

Note: this post has been updated to account for information provided by Lewisville's Chief of Police
Here in Lewisville, our City Council recently passed a new animal ordinance which among other things banned the roadside sales of animals. One of the big problems with this kind of thing is the safety issue, but another thing is that it promotes an irresponsible industry that ultimately harms society.

Here on February 14th, weeks after the ordinance passed, is yet another roadside puppy sale:

Due to timing issues, the ordinance will not take effect until February 16th, though the city originally had said February 9th.

The ordinance allows an exception where properties are "certified to sell animals". I was on my way to a meeting, so I didn't ask to see a permit, but I would think it's safe to assume that the government doesn't issue permits for an address like "grassy area alongside the intersection of I-35 and 3040".

Clinton stumps for Noriega in North Texas

Local News, Notes and Events
Posted by Toni on 2008/10/16 1:30:00 (1867 reads)

The event was very well attended and garnered the Noriega campaign lots of coverage in the Star Telegram, the Dallas Morning News, the Denton Record Chronicle, and the Houston Chronicle.
Mom and I got lucky and had seats near the front next to Dallas County District Judge Larry Mitchell. We also had a chance to visit with State Representative Roberto Alonzo, State Representative Rafael Anchia, Dallas Sheriff Lupe Valdez, and County Commissioner John Wiley Price.

These are some of my favorite quotes from the evening:

Dallas County Democratic Party Chair, Darlene Ewing: "One punch and you're done. Vote a STRAIGHT DEMOCRATIC TICKET."

President Clinton: "It won't be enough to get a new President. We need a whole new Congress. . . The supporting cast matters. . . . This [election] is about the survival of the United States . . . the survival of the American Dream." Clinton also added that he came to Texas at Hillary's request saying she told him she was so "mad at the DSCC" for not giving more help to Noriega.

Well, Bill, I'm mad, too. So, the next time you get an email from the DSCC asking for money for a Senate candidate in some other part of the country. Tell them: "no thank you, we have a great Senate Candidate right here in Texas." Then visit Noriega's website and make a contribution.

When Noriega took the stage--to thunderous applause--he reminded everyone of John Cornyn's terrible record (Texas ranks last in children's health insurance coverage; Cornyn actually said he wanted Texas to be a model for national healthcare reform!) and pledged to stand by "Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama" to sign a health care reform package.

Pictures from the event are posted at Dos Centavos
