BAD NEWS - Loose dogs attacked dogs who were on their owners' property and have been aggressive toward humans numerous times recently. Having your dog, licensed or unlicensed, unrestrained off your property is a violation of Village ordinance. These dogs may be impounded and if determined to be vicious, euthanized. For those who are concerned, help identify the loose animals be getting pictures with date and time. Even if you don't live in the village, when you bring your dog into town, you are subject to the same ordinance as residents. Dog licensing ordinance update will be discussed at the July board meeting.

Only 4 are normal to abnormally dry; 1 is abnormally dry, but 12 in the Southeast are abnormally dry to moderate drought, 4 range from normal to moderate drought and six are moderate drought. There are no severe drought conditions anywhere in our state - YET! Cass County is still in the abnormally dry to moderate drought group.
Nationally, only 14 states - Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia have normal moisture levels. Things are better in the Northeast and Midwest. Puerto Rico, Hawaii and Alaska are drying out.
