Check out Lois Henry's Bakersfield Californian column regarding the licensing program Bill Bruce spoke about during his presentation to the Animal Control Commission.
It was a great column for a few reasons. She reports the success of the city's licensing pilot program that took place last year, something I've been hoping to see for some time. She's got the first public mention I've seen of Denise Haynes' departure from Kern County Animal Control which, whether you agreed with the way she handled the department or not, is news. And she once again puts a little fire under the feet of a Board of Supervisors who appear quite long on talk, but painfully short on action.
Maybe, if we all get together, they will finally get the message that we'd like to see a little action for a change.
