Or if you know a 2-bedroom near Morrison (area) house or apartment under $600 a month let me know.


Please help the Dearborn County shelter dogs!!

For those with friends or family in Aurora, Indiana, please pass this on! Even donations help if you're not in the market for a pet. And of course, always look to local shelters before buying a dog from a store or breeder, etc etc.

Time is running out for and dozens of dogs in Dearborn County.

"We're so over crowed right now...we're at the point here, where somebody's going to have to be going," says Dearborn county animal shelter officer Lisa Harrison.

They need your help, and without it these big eyes and wagging tails will be gone forever...put to sleep. And shelter director Ann Averill says that's not what she wants.

"We really don't want to euthanize any of them if we can help it," Averill says.

But soon that won't be a choice and even this week some have already been put down. Recently the shelter saw a 30 percent increase in the dog population. Some picked up on the side of the road...others simply left outside.

"We find them tied to the trailer and just roaming around outside the shelter. Our numbers are defiantly up," Averill says

A new addition to the shelter is Venus. She is a yellow lab mix and was recently abandoned and needs a great home. "She is an excellent dog, she makes a great pet for any family, she seems to like kids...she's house broken," Harrison says

The process is fun and even easy on the wallet.

Adoption fees are just forty dollars. If the dog is not spayed or neutered, the shelter will pay for the procedure at one of the local veterinarians. Another perk, the shelter is running a special where they'll give you a brand new leader leash. You can even bring in your other pets for a meet and greet.

The shelter is also in need of all donations, including dog and cat food, litter, hay or straw for bedding and cash donations to help with medical expenses.

The Dearborn County Animal Shelter is located at 11681 County Farm Road, Aurora, Indiana 47001 or you can visit the website at

parking meters

I've been doing online courses for 1 1/2 years now and can't remember...
do you have to pay for the parking meters by AJ on Saturday now? (the one across from the library)

I need to work on finals but I don't have a permit. I'd work on them at home, but I need some QUIET! :)

Roommate(s) wanted or a place to live.

Hey everybody,
My name is Tyler and I'm a second year architecture student without a place to live or people to even live with next year.  I've been doing some searching online and I would prefer to live in a house if at all possible, but I suppose I'll take what I can get at this point.  Let me know if you're interested or know somebody who is.  Email would be the best way to get ahold of me but you could also try my cell phone.

Strength of Sisters

This is a group for mentoring girls at Southside High school. From my understanding, there is some level of sex education as well as actual mentoring involved. There is a fund for these girls to be able to buy prom dresses, etc. Also, these girls have not been out of Indiana (or likely Muncie) so money is also being collected for them to be able to go on a trip out of state to experience some diversity and go outside of their norms.

If you would like to participate in this project, please contact me ( or Cecilia Peralta at
