Q. I am in a dispute with my landlord. Is it legal to record my phone calls with him? Do I have to tell him I am recording it or have a beeping sound?

Cold and wet weather put the skids to fishing on inland lakes and bays last weekend, but with a decent warming trend this week, things should pick up.

Cool weather flowers

Just when you think one more day of dreary drizzly weather will send you straight to Mexico, you see a patch of colorful winter blooms that cheer you up. February is when I need a splash of color the most. We seldom freeze, but our cool weather temperatures have scared away most of our summer bloomers by now. But think about cheery pansies, snapdragons, ornamental kale, English daisies and my favorites, primrose and cyclamen. We can enjoy them here until temperatures start to climb in late spring.

As we continue to celebrate “Black History Month” each February, it is important that this not just be a date on the calendar but that it contributes to the changing of our future by making us aware of our past.

Clyde the Cat

Meet Clyde, a male black and white domestic house cat weighing about 12 pounds. Clyde came to the shelter on Christmas Eve 2017, where staff was told he had an owner. Sadly, the owner never came for Clyde. He is very sweet, loving and a little lazy. He loves attention and will let you know when he needs an ear rub. Clyde has been at the shelter too long and needs to be with a loving family or individual for companionship. Clyde is meowing for YOU! Adoption fee for cats is $90, which includes vaccinations, spay or neuter, worming and flea treatment.
