In an “act of random kindness,” a team from Fayetteville-based Mitchell Communications Group sponsored every available pet at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter last week, meaning all adoption fees are covered.

There are only two public meetings scheduled for this week in Fayetteville – a City Council agenda-setting session and a meeting of the council’s Equipment Committee.

In his latest pet column, Bill McQuade tackles the question of how to deal with a dog that likes to chew on shoes.

In his latest review, Tobias Wray takes a look at The Moscow Classical Ballet’s performance of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker which ran through Dec. 23 at the Walton Arts Center.
