Welcome to Buckley Veterinary Hospital’s monthly pet care column. The holiday season is here! This month we are discussing keeping your pets safe and healthy during the holidays, including the importance of not feeding table scraps to avoid stomach upset and intestinal obstructions, and reducing your pet’s anxiety.
Mr. Rich Elfers' article about Republicans being the party of change – with a question mark, no less – makes me wonder if conservatives are now liberals. No, probably not. Both parties have their own ideas and they have had their own ideas for a long, long time. The term conservative means opposed to change, but Republicans certainly seem to effect change.
I was very impressed by Josiah Hokanson's commentary "Use the gifts you've been given" (11/13/13) calling us all to value two of the gifts that our military has fought and died for which he found the most compelling. The gift of the privilege to vote and our right to a trial by jury.
Have you heard it? Or more likely felt it in your chest? That low rumbling almost sound that seems to pervade your house and life now in Bonney Lake. Maybe you have noted it before but more now? Barely on the edge of perception during the day before bed when the TVs are on and home work at the kitchen table is in progress.

Rich Elfer's column often presents thought provoking material and so it was again with his comments on dealing with conflict. However, I might suggest that in spite of his "official" class on dealing with conflict, there is another approach, a sixth method, that is often employed in the real world.
In over 50 years of residing on the lake we have observed many changes; most of them have been due to residential growth but then many have been changes to our fish and wildlife.
According to Rich Elfers (In Focus, July 24) women only need be armed with "the pill" to reach their peak in business, society and life in general.
The League of Women Voters has created a website to help you better understand who you are voting for. We have listed each contested race in the county, given the salary and job description and asked each candidate a list of questions. Their responses can be compared side by side.
My kidneys have stopped working and, as a result, home dialysis treatments have become a critical part of my life. Dialysis allows me to stay healthy. Dialysis is already a challenge to be overcome on a daily basis and I am extremely concerned about the [Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services] proposed rule released on July 1 which will cut end-stage renal disease reimbursements for dialysis care by 12 percent.
