words from the editors:

I am actually feeling blindsided. Where did the summer go? Kids went back to school; Labor Day came and went and summer is officially over. It doesn’t have to be over, at least not yet. I’m sure we will have some beautiful summer-like days through Septemberand Octber assuming that the weather patterns follows the norm with an Indian Summer like we usually have in the Delaware Valley. But wait, there is no norm anymore. We could expect just about anything moving into the fall season. The weather has been so erratic lately that I don’t think anything is certain any more. Scientists attribute the unpredictable weather patterns to climate change, and for those who don’t believe in the scientific evidence, Wake Up and look out your window. Do you think that the damage is done? Are we too late? IF we make the suggested changes can we reverse the trends? Kudos to Delaware for being recognized as the first no kill state! Read about it in this issue and check out some of the cats and dogs, like Archibald (below) that were saved and many are still available for adoption at the Brandywine Valley SPCA.
