Owners of dogs and cats in need of rabies vaccinations are invited to bring their pet companions to the low cost Rabies Clinic at the Humane Society of Scott County from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14th. The rabies vaccination fee is $7.50. All dogs must be on leashes and cats must be in carriers. Bring previous rabies vaccination paperwork if available.

ATTENTION MILITARY FAMILIES! Thanks to a grant from the Rock Island Arsenal Welcome Club, 13 military families, currently in service to our country and veterans, can bring a dog or cat to one of our rabies clinics and have their pet companion vaccinated FREE. Please present a valid ID. Only one pet per military family, please, so that we may serve as many families as made possible by the grant.

For more information, contact the Humane Society of Scott County at (563) 388-6655.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night. Phyllis Diller sent the audience with her offbeat humor. And send them she did! It was Miss Diller's third appearance in the Quad-Cities area.
1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
