Letter: Gilland responds to crape myrtle criticism

Please accept my sincere apology for the perceived tone of the recent column on crape murder. My passion for trees can and did, I suppose, get the better of me.

Help dogs cope with separation anxiety

Dog owners are typically bewildered when man's best friend exhibits destructive or disruptive behavior. Chewing furniture or urinating or defecating indoors is upsetting for dog owners, who might feel they need to discipline their pooch to ensure it does not happen again. But discipline might not be the remedy for destructive or disruptive behavior, which might be a sign of separation anxiety.
