Kimball Tri-County News--Thursday, April 25, 1991 Letter to the Editor A bill has been introduced and is moving in the Minnesota Legislature that would subsidize spay/neuter surgery on dogs and cats, raising the money through a one percent sales tax on pet food. Every pet owner, regard- less of income, would be eligi- ble for this subsidy, which is es- timated to be about $10 per surgery. I am opposing this legislation because it will only have a marginal effect on the dog and cat population. Many veterinari- ans predict this small subsidy will only increase sterilizations performed by about ten to fif- teen porcenL The Legislature is having a difficult time balancing the bud- get for the next biennium, mak- ing this a very poor time to be starting new programs and im- posing new taxes. This bill is a move towards socialized veteri- nary medicine, which I am philosophically opposed to. Sincerely, Steve DiUe Veterinarian/State Repres. Dassel, MN Letter to the Editor Girl Scout Leader's Day The times are changing. Mothers are working more outside the home, parents are spending a lot of time commuting to and from work, and families have less time to spend together. But one thing hasn't changed. Parents remain vitally concerned about the well-being of their children. One organization that shares parents' concerns is the Girl Scouts. The Girl Scouts understand that self-reliance, self-esteem and leadership experiences are three of the most important gifts a girl can receive. Girl Scout leaders find the time to give girls these gifts, and more.

The remarkable thing is that Girl Scout troop leaders make every developmental step along the way fun. April 22 was Girl Scout Leader's Day. I take great pride in recognizing the accomplishments of Girl Scout leaders in Kimball. If you know a Girl Scout leader, take a moment to say thanks.
