I am traveling from Houston to work on the disaster team in NJ. I found out we will not work onRead More Thanksgiving day so I would love to volunteer my time. Please email me at dftsjt@Gmail.com. I am flying in on today. Thanks

What a wonderful story! However I question the use of the word "quadriplegic". From theRead More photos it appears that Lauren has use of her arms, so she would be called "paraplegic". Just wanting clarification - thanks.
Lyn Bratton August 23, 2012 at 01:38 am
Marian, she's a quadriplegic because of the location of her injury, and because she has limitedRead More dexterity in her hands. She has control of the muscles of her arms but lacks the fine motor skills.

Thank you, Rhiannon. That information conflicts with what is listed on this web page.Read More http://www.haywardanimals.org/volunteers.html I will call the shelter tomorrow and find out which is correct and report back in the comments section.

Maybe rather than just copy random things from websites, Patch writers should do some fact-checkingRead More /before/ posting a story.

Rhiannon - The shelter is still accepting volunteers, however, the next training and orientationRead More session will not be held for another month or so. Rather than accepting individual applications one by one, the shelter has just started requesting people sign up for the orientation class and submit their application at the time of the orientation. I have updated the story and suggest you call in September for the next orientation date.

This program has been going on since I was in high school and has had its ups and downs. A personalRead More friend of mine kept the aquarium program, not the newer MAST program, going over the summer the year after we graduated back in 2005 so it's nice to see students working over the summer still (even if its under these circumstances). Maybe the school district should look into aquiring aid from local pet stores with workers whom understand the delicate balance of caring for these animals and the mechanincs of the sumps and overflow filters. I have seen animals just placed in the tanks not really thinking of the proper conditions or proper spacial requirements for the fish. I really do hope the school district takes the assistance from all the volunteers and not just those who think they know everything. The long term results are more important than the quick fixes that are being done now.

Thanks Gary, unfortunately it takes a lot of unpaid time and commitment for one teacher to run suchRead More a great program.For such a program to succeed, it will need a true community effort modeled by Mr Stadler.Ms.Montgomery and the students who re helping. hopefully the new teacher will have the passion and incentive to keep the program alive and thriving!

With all the interest in this vampire stuff the REd Cross should have a "Twilight" Drive.Read More Shirtless hunky male vamps for female donors, toothy vampirellas for the guys.

I would LOVE to donate - used to 4x a year until I lived in Europe for a while. Now the Red CrossRead More doesn't want my blood because they think I might have mad cow disease. It's a shame too - I've got the good old, common stuff that they always run low on. When is the Red Cross going to change their rules requiring people living outside the country for a while?

I wouldn't expect that to happen anytime in the foreseeable future.

As I recall, it was the strong liberal/anti-war movement's self-centered mentality in San FranciscoRead More that allowed this fine example of US seapower in WWII to be taken from our hands and delivered to San Pedro! That was a major mistake and our Bay Area will suffer from this great battleship not being here for us and millions of tourists to enjoy. For all the influence and participation San Francisco as a seaport has had in the development of America's seapower over the years, it seems a real shame not to have at least one example of these great battleships be a star attraction at this seaport. Thanks to many forward thinking volunteers at all leverls, we have the USS Hornet aircraft carrier tied up at Alameda. The USS Hornet is a state and national landmark! If you want to see a piece of US history from WWII to space travel, stop on by and visit this veteran today. On Monday, 28 May, there will be a Memorial Day program starting at 1 p.m. And be sure to take the family, it will be worth your time!
