Attorney general supports crime
In the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal, we have seen rioting with the implication that justice was denied Trayvon Martin.
One of the jurors said that jurors had diligently considered the evidence and came to the tearful resolution that Zimmerman had acted in self-defense in shooting Martin. Hence, justice was done.
The evidence showed only Zimmerman was beaten, having been assaulted by Martin. The juror stated they had come to the conclusion that Zimmerman’s heart was in the right place, intending only to protect his community.
The jury’s finding should be accepted by all Americans with respect to our system of justice. The Sanford Police Department released Zimmerman without charges. That decision was backed up by the acquittal.
Attorney General Eric Holder’s reaction was disappointing and unprofessional. Of all people, he should accept the jury’s decision.
Instead, he revealed himself to be one of three things: an idiot, an ignorant fool or a lying propagandist. He referred to the shooting of Trayvon Martin as unnecessary and stated “stand your ground laws” led to an exclamation of violence. The fact is that in most cases where a gun is displayed, aggressors step down and the weapon is never fired.
Holder wants people to be required to retreat even to the point of abandoning their homes to the miscreants. I’m sure the criminals appreciate Holder’s support.

AARF kennel to open Satuday
TheAshland Animal Rescue Fund (AARF) is excited! This coming Saturday, August 3, we will be opening our kennel facilities to the public. We invite everyone to come visit us as we celebrate
Our new opening hours for the public. On Fridays and Saturdays we will be open from noon to 5 p.m..
Our kennel is located at 3238 Ky. 5, Ashland.
Our adoptable dogs, puppies, cats and kitties look forward to meeting you. AARF has many beautiful, healthy animals just waiting for their family to come and adopt them.
All age ranges are available. The volunteers have worked long hours preparing for this event so that the animals can have a greater chance for a quicker adoption. AARF is a no kill shelter.
We will have volunteer, adoption and foster forms available. We are always in great need for foster homes to help transition our furbabies to a home setting before their adoption. If you have considered volunteering or fostering, this will be a good day to ask questions about our programs. We welcome all those who love animals and want to make a difference in their lives. The rewards are immeasurable!
This Saturday we will have a bounce house on site, balloons and face painting for the younger crowd. Also there will be door prizes and a 50/50 drawing in which you do not have to be present to win. Newly designed AARF T-shirts and other AARF merchandise will be offered for sale.
We look forward to meeting you this Saturday. Come grow with AARF!!
