I like the way Hillsboro works. I had a cop come to our house and tell me I need a kennel license or Hillsboro will kill our dogs.
I do what Hillsboro tells me to do. I had an inspector at our house. He gave me an application to fill out for a kennel license.
Hillsboro said I had to talk to a building inspector. I talked to the building inspector and he said I cannot have a kennel. Who is back-stabbing who? Hillsboro leaves the building inspector out of certain things.
When it comes to our dogs, I will fight. Hillsboro cannot murder my dogs. I will build my kennel. I won’t listen to anyone. I ain’t playing your games anymore. My kennels are going up. I’m starting a business.

On behalf of the hospitals and patients served by American Red Cross blood services, thank-you to all the generous donors who turned out to give blood at the Parkview MB?Church Dec. 7. We had 49 people who responded to the need in our community and throughout the country.

Why are we all so rude these days?
Has anyone noticed how rude we all are? Like when there is a yellow floor placard telling you to be careful because the floor is wet and slippery? Most...

Last Tuesday around 3:30 p.m., in broad, clear, sunny daylight, our dog was hit by a car and killed. Whoever hit her did not stop or call us. This is quite disappointing.
While we understand that some vehicle-animal collisions cannot be avoided due to animals darting out into the road, we feel it would have been common courtesy for the person who hit our dog to come forward and at least apologize.
Joel, who had been making a fence at the other end of a large field, noticed a section of bumper in the road a short distance away from our now-deceased dog.
We had specifically put not one but two collars on our dog so that if she was away from home, people would know she is somebody’s dog. One of...

Veterans book is a ‘job well done’
I Received my copy of “Our Nation Called” and must say, a job well done. The book exceeded my expectations and I could not put it down until I read every page.
I found it a real privilege to be pictured along with my brothers, cousins, uncles, classmates and other great Americans from Hillsboro and Marion County that served our nation.
To the Hillsboro Free Press publisher, staff and others who contributed and worked to produce this book, I give you my hardy congratulations on this excellent publication. Hillsboro and all of Marion County should be very proud of your patriotic achievement.

We at Main Street Ministries Inc. would like to offer our sincere gratitude to the community for its participation and giving during Trick-or-Treat So Others Can Eat.
We had 70 youth plus sponsors from Hillsboro churches spread out across town to collect donations from the community on Halloween night.
Once all the food was accounted for, including donations from people living just outside of town, the youth had collected 1,925 pounds of food from the community. That exceeds the total from last year by nearly 400 pounds!
Our shelves at the food bank are now bursting at the seams, due in large part to this event. This boost comes at the perfect time, as the late fall and winter seasons bring in the...
