Cool cats know how to chill as well as any old dog

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

Normally, you might find us anywhere around the community with a camera and note pad, asking simple questions and looking for thoughtful answers. During this coronavirus pandemic, we are practicing social distancing and turned to social media to ask readers and followers: “Never mind the Dog Days of Summer; as the heat of the season prevails, how are your cool cats chilling out?”
