Hunter, a 4-year-old Weimaraner, waits in a kennel at Pima Animal Care Center. His owner surrendered him for adoption because she could no longer afford to care for him.

Hunter’s owner had him for three years. That was long enough to count him as part of her family, long enough to know he loves to play with her grandchildren and that he is afraid of rain. And long enough to weep when she had to leave him behind after she got laid off from work. Read more»

A law taking effect later this month authorizes an Arizona Gold Star Military Medal for families of Arizonans killed in action. But Bons said she’d like money that would go toward the medals to be spent on living military members and veterans.

The dogtag around Margy Bons’ neck bears a picture of her son, Marine Sgt. Michael Marzano. Her office contains a shrine of sorts to him: a portrait, a service medallion, a folded flag. Under a new law, she is to receive an Arizona Gold Star Military Medal honoring her son’s sacrifice. Read more»
