The executive director of the Humane Society of the Palouse said that members of the public started contacting the shelter last week regarding the trapping of the cats. The director then reached out to the school. She said that the cats were put down using a “gas chamber” a method approved by the AVMA. A University of Idaho spokesperson did not comment on that and only said the cats were put down by AVMA standards.

Here is the full statement from the

“Over the summer, the seven identified cats were trapped and the veterinarian ruled each to be feral, sickly and unlikely to recover,” University of Idaho officials said in a statement provided to KREM 2. “The seven were euthanized by the University’s veterinarian via American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) standards.”

The school said no traps are currently on campus. School officials said they teamed up with the Humane Society of the Palouse if any more feral cats were to be found on campus. The shelter’s executive director said that if any more cats are found, the Humane Society will help relocate the cats to farms where they could be used to hunt vermin.


The Hungry Chum: An eater’s guide to the Alaska State Fair – KTVA.com – Anchorage, Alaska

Fish On! is brings the flavors of a fish camp to the fair. Their Umiak — a salmon, bacon and cheese-stuffed jalapeño — called to me early in the evening yet I didn’t heed the call. As we left Thursday night, a young girl walked by with a piece of fry bread covered in powdered sugar and I knew what a mistake I had made. Luckily for me, I have two more weeks to right my wrong.

These are a beloved Alaska State Fair tradition. Take a light, airy pastry and fill it with smooth, rich cream and cover it in your choice of chocolate, caramel or berries. Now imagine that on steroids and you’ll have the Denali Cream Puff. We decided to split the topping, half chocolate and half salted caramel. There was a perfect balance of the three elements and it was sweet but not sickeningly so. It’s easy to see why this is a crowd-pleaser with fairgoers.

For food fanatics in the Last Frontier, that day is the first day of the Alaska State Fair.

Dave Gottsegen: Hypnosis treatment helps many patients – GazetteNET


Dr. David Gottsegen

But by focusing on the case of a boy with anxiety, your reporter chose a condition for which hypnosis may be helpful, in addition to psychotherapy.

And hypnosis works equally well for adults with those conditions. So behavioral treatments like hypnosis should be the standard treatment, not “alternative” for most patients with headaches and IBS or functional abdominal pain.

For children with headaches and functional abdominal pain or irritable bowel syndrome, however, hypnosis and biofeedback are the best evidence-based treatments, surpassing any medicine, herb, or supplement.


Federal Judge Curbs Enforcement of North Carolina Transgender Access Law – New York Times

Judge Schroeder will preside.

“Today is a great day for me, and hopefully this is a start to chipping away at the injustice of H.B. 2 that is harming thousands of other transgender people who call people home,” Joaquín Carcaño, a transgender man who is a plaintiff in the case and a University of North Carolina employee, said in a statement. “Today, the tightness that I have felt in my chest every day since H.B. 2 passed has eased. But the fight is not over: We won’t rest until this discriminatory law is defeated.”

Mr. McCrory, who signed H.B. 2 into law, and others have spent months arguing that the statute, which the Republican-controlled General Assembly approved during a special session, is free of discriminatory intent. But they have struggled to persuade civil rights activists and major businesses, and the state has endured an enormous backlash. Last month, the National Basketball Association protested the law by abandoning plans to hold its 2017 All-Star Game in Charlotte, the state’s largest city.


New Jersey stays out of NY’s fight to clean up the Hudson – NorthJersey.com

Despite those concerns, EPA officials allowed GE to dismantle the company’s decontamination facility, a move that environmentalists feared would ensure that dredging work on the Hudson was over.

Almost the entire river down to Bayonne is a federal Superfund site because the pollution is so widespread.

“I don’t recall ever having a significant phone call with any New Jersey official on this,” said Steinberg, who lives in New Jersey and served as administrator from 2005 to 2009.

After years of legal battles, GE agreed to one of the largest Superfund cleanups in history. Last year the company completed a $1.6 billion dredging project that saw 2.8 million cubic yards of polluted mud — enough to fill two football stadiums — removed from a 40-mile stretch in upstate New York.
