God loves you and so do I. Take a Break for Breakfast: Waffles are very good for breakfast. Here is a good recipe: Waffle Hill Waffles 1-1/2 c flour 2/3 c yellow cornmeal 2 T sugar, 1 T baking powder 1/4 t salt 2 beaten eggs 1-1/2 c milk 1/2 c cooking oil In large bowl combine flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. Beat eggs, milk and oil together. Add to dry ingredients, beat just til! dry ingredients are moistened and batter is nearly smooth. Cook in pre-heated waffle iron until golden brown. Serves 6. (NOTE: the secret is the cornmeal!) chain." Basically the ordinance states that dogs "must be controlled"; that is, fenced in, kept on a leash, or visually controlled. Failure to com- ply results in a $20.00 impoundment fee plus $5.00/day upkeep. The animals are kept for five days, and if not claimed or adopted, are disposed of by the Perkins Y Clinic, with whom the Town of Perkins has a contract. If the animals are tagged, every effort will be made to contact the owner and notify them their animal has been picked up. Edwards said she also utilizes the Stillwater Rottweiler Rescue, who rescues pure-bred dogs and pays for thei÷ shots and spay/neutering costs, then tries to find them suitable homes. Edwards also said she is not sure residents are aware that ifa dog bites someone and the skin is broken there is a mandatory ten-day i: holding period for observation, regardless of current vaccinations, and must be performed by a licensed veterinarian. Thevet's charges are passed on to the owner when they claim their animal, t Occasionally, a mother and/or puppies fire picked Up, as in the l case of a female Cockerfrerrier mix she has right now. "We have three six-week old female puppies waiting to be adopted: one tan i~ with a black muzzle, one black Schnauzer:mix, and one dark brown puppy. Only the $20.00 fee will be charged." If interested, contact City Hall at 547-2855. Edwards encouraged Perkins residents to see to their pets' needs - "not just providing food and necessary shots, but keep them safe."
