Attorney general joins fight against robo-calls

in

BATON ROUGE — Attorney General Buddy Caldwell today joined 53 other attorneys general in asking Congress to oppose legislation targeting consumers’ telephone privacy. The “Mobile Informational Call Act of 2011” (H.R. 3035) would amend the Communications Act of 1934 and allow for robo-calling to all cell phones, leaving consumers to foot the bill, Caldwell said.
For example, debt collectors and other businesses could place automated “informational” calls to cell phones, impacting those who pay by the minute or have a limited number of minutes available.
“This federal measure is an attack on Americans’ telephone privacy and diminishes the ability of attorneys general to protect consumers,” said Caldwell.

The 6-2 and 215-pound junior was presented with a huge, sparkling trophy during the ESPN nationally-televised Home Depot College Football Awards show held at the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla.

Training dog to find wounded deer

120911 JERRY HESTER C.jpg

Her name was Susie. She was owned by the parents of my future son-in-law, Keith. During deer season one day long ago, I shot a doe, followed and lost the blood trail and was about to give up when I remembered Susie.
I called Keith, he brought Susie over and within half an hour, she was barking at my downed deer.
This happens all across our part of the country this time of year; a hunter makes an errant shot, a deer is wounded and would become food for coyotes and buzzards except for a good blood trailing dog.
