Storm Destroys Animal Shelter

People in Drexel are still recovering from the storm earlier this week, but the local animal shelter fears it can't recover. Warm Fuzzys needs to get all 25 cats new homes, because the storm blew the trailer off its foundation, and it is too unstable to house the cats. The damage to the building was so bad, they think it will have to be demolished, and since insurance didn't cover the building, their rescue shelter days are over. That is unless someone can help them.

On Wednesday, I did a story about a freak accident causing a major power outage in St Joe. About 50-thousand homes and businesses were without power for almost two hours:

I was in Lawrence yesterday covering the theft and vandalism of some fairly rare and valuable books on the KU Campus Watson Library. Hard to believe there's a market for illustrations and maps STOLEN OUT OF BOOKS!! That seems strange to me. You'd think being removed from the book would lessen its value, but what do I know. Just kind of sad to see taxpayer dollars wasted because of someone's selfishness.

More coverage of Tiller murder

I talked to a former friend of Roeder's who fanned the flames of some of the pro-life rhetoric going around now about Tiller's murder, namely that it's "a shame it didn't happen sooner." It's not included in the story, but I did ask her about the pro-life groups denouncing Tiller's death and she said that because they profit from abortion being in existence, they don't really want it abolished, and that's why they sympathize with Tiller.

My story also included our interview with the KCK clinic employee who was also familiar with Roeder, from his protests at the clinic. He carries a gun and said if "they" want to take this fight to the streets, he's ready to do that.

Today's story kind of worried me about the future of any abortion dialog in this country.

Tiller Coverage

Dr. George Tiller, an abortion doctor well known throughout the country because he performed controversial late-term abortions, was shot in the head and killed Sunday. He was an usher at his church, when witnesses say a man walked up to him and ended his life. I went to Wichita today for a follow up story.
