H.A.N.D.D.S dog rescue group
H.A.N.D.D.S. to the Rescue is a all volunteer group that is dedicated to saving those dogs that would otherwise be euthanized due to lack of space, medical conditions or severe injuries.
The organizer of the group spoke with 7&4 News about the challenges they're facing and what community members can do to help including volunteering with H.A.N.D.D.S or adopting dogs that need foster homes.

Fire Crews Bracing For A Critical Fire Week

Rejected Whiting plan
City commissioners in August voted down a plan that involved Sutherland and developer Gene LaFave renovating the downtown Whiting Hotel with millions in public dollars. Commissioners defeated the measure by a 4 to 2 vote.
The $7.4 million Whiting project was meant to create 27 affordable housing units and 11 low-income apartments around an expanded Cherry Republic store on the ground floor.
Proponents said the project would have created 190 new construction jobs and fit with The Grand Vision land use study that calls for public investment in city and village centers. Opponents questioned the large use of public dollars that eliminated 54 rooms for existing tenants.
