energy and according to Tom McGee, who spends a lot of time with Molly, “she is great for an active family”, citing hiking and mountain climbing as family activities that Molly would love to be a
part of. Similarly, Mia is also an Australian Cattle Dog, who is incredibly affectionate, smart and full of energy; “they’re just meant to have a job,” noted McGee. And certainly not to exclude the Labs, brothers Joe and Rocky were there looking for a new home. The Labrador Retriever (mix) pair was also parading the grounds looking for that special someone to adopt them.

And finally, a recent arrival that certainly stole my heart was Cora, a Shepard- Border Collie mix. According to Katherine Curry, a volunteer for the day, Cora is 13 weeks old and has all her shots. Having arrived in Pelham, just hours earlier from South Carolina, Cora is certainly worth checking out, as is the entire Pelham facility. The pet adoption day is typically held on the last

Pitman-Robertson Act Marks 75 Years
This year, 2012, marks the 75th anniversary of the passage of the landmark Pittman-Robertson Act. In 1932, Congress authorized an excise tax on firearms and ammunition that went into the general treasury of the United States. Five years later, with the passage of Pittman-Robertson, those excise taxes had to be passed on to state game agencies for the exclusive use of funding programs designed to improve wildlife habitat, as well as improve hunter access. Here’s a look at the state of game populations and hunting opportunities at the time Pittman-Robertson was passed: • In 1937, 11 states had no open seasons for deer and three others only had local seasons. Missouri’s deer season was only three days long.

Saturday of each month. For more information on bringing one of these dogs into your life and for the entire adoption process, contact the Pelham Animal Holding Facility at 233-4801 or go to www.arnne.org
• No states had dedicated archery or muzzleloader seasons. Here’s how things stand now:
• Today, virtually every state boasts lengthy deer seasons. • Missouri hunters enjoy more than 123 days of hunting for deer each year.
• Special archery-only and muzzleloader-only seasons are held in nearly every state. Even considering recent declines in the total number of hunters, there is still more than twice the number of hunters in 2010 than there were in 1937. Celebrate the passage of the Pittman-Robertson Act and all it has done for hunters and wildlife.

Learn About One Family’s Fight Against Cancer
submitted by Ken Eyring, Southern NH 9.12 Imagine hearing the news that you or a loved one has just been diagnosed with brain cancer. A surreal feeling overtakes you as a flood of uncertainty rushes through your mind. You try to process
all of the conflicting emotions while fielding questions that you are bombarded with by the doctors – pushing you for decisions on their recommended procedures. Time is short as you try to come to grips with the fact that life hangs in the balance. The weight on your shoulders grows exponentially as the frightening reality sinks in that it is your responsibility to make the life or death decisions. If you are like most Americans, you will feel helpless, unprepared and completely reliant on the advice of a few individuals. It is only after situations like this, that hindsight is 20/20, and
(many times) we wish that some of the decisions we made were different. This is what happened to Mark Lutter and his wife when their two year old daughter Alexa, was diagnosed with brain cancer last year. While Alexa is now cancer free, the surgery produced numerous complications and Mark is haunted by the fact that many of their decisions were made without the benefit of knowing all of the available facts and options. It is his desire to educate others, and to share why some of their decisions would have been different had they known then, what they know now. Please join us at the next Southern NH 9.12 meeting on Tuesday,
May 8, at 7 p.m. at the Windham Senior Center, 2 North Lowell Road. This meeting is free and open to the public, snacks and refreshments will be served, and everyone is encouraged to attend.
