The holiday season is one filled with gleeful celebrations among friends and family. Often, these celebrations entail large holiday meals, festive desserts and snacks, and enough leftovers for a month's worth of sandwiches. While we try to be cautious of our own health and nutrition throughout the season, it is just as important that we care for our pet's nutrition as well-no matter how convincing Fido's "begging" face is for the chocolate cake in the center of the table.
A police officer escorts a group of children across Little Street along DeKalb Street near the Little Theater in either 1955 or 1956.

Archives staff believe the officer may be either Safety Officer Albert Hare, or Officer Dan E. Stuber. If you can help, please call Director Katherine Richardson at 425-6050.

Still, we're glad to see House Speaker John Boehner finally stand up to Tea Party-motivated members of Congress and call them out for being obstinate.
