S.N.I.P.S. of Watauga Humane Society’s 3rd Annual “Everything but …

The expression “everything but the kitchen sink” was popularized in World War II, during the naval bombardments in the South Pacific. The US Navy, intent on winning sea battles, threw “everything but the kitchen sink” at the enemy. In sponsoring and raising funds through the 3rd Annual “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” sale, the S.N.I.P.S. (Spay Neuter Is a Positive Solution) Committee of Watauga Humane Society (W.H.S.) is fighting a battle, as well, against the formidable enemies of animal suffering, overpopulation, homelessness, and euthanasia. With public support, it’s a war that can be won.

Come shop for the cause on Saturday, March 17th, from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., at Boone United Methodist Church (in the Family Life Center), at 471 New Market Blvd., when S.N.I.P.S. troops and strategists will throw “everything but the kitchen sink” at you at this annual sales extravaganza!

Included in the huge inventory of multifarious items large and small, common and unique, useful and ornamental, will be baskets and bowls; boots and boot trays; caps and hats; children’s toys, including a rocking horse, a child’s porcelain tea set circa 1950, and many other treasures from childhoods past; coffee table and animal-themed books; crockery and pottery; desks and chairs; end tables and magazine racks, fine and costume jewelry; garden accessories and tools; glassware and cookware; headboards and footboards; kitchen and end tables; lamps and shades; linens, pillows and throws including a brand new Ikea comforter cover; microwaves and mixers; music and movies; an Oreck upright vacuum cleaner; pet essentials and accessories; pictures, paintings and wormy chestnut frames of all sizes; saws, blades and bicycle pumps; small appliances in good working order; sofas and couches; rockers and footstools, and who knows – maybe even a kitchen sink. The prices are rock bottom, and if you don’t find what you need, you’ll certainly find what you want!

All proceeds support S.N.I.P.S. low cost spay/neuter services for high country pets through Watauga Humane Society and ASPCA Spay Neuter Alliance of Asheville, NC.

Don’t miss this opportunity to help S.N.I.P.S. win the battle against suffering, neglect and abandonment, so that the animal kingdom is peaceable, the animal shelters are empty, and every pet is a wanted pet. Last year, 496 animals were spayed or neutered through S.N.I.P.S./W.H.S. programs at a cost of only $10 to their owners, which included a rabies shot.

For more information about low-cost spay neuter for your pet, call Watauga Humane Society at 828-264-7865 and ask for the “S.N.I.P.S. $10 Special,” which is ongoing while funds last. Beginning in February, male cats are being neutered locally, through a pilot program established by S.N.I.P.S. with local veterinarians.

The College Student Who Smeared Bodily Fluids Over Her Roommate’s Belongings Has Been Sentenced To Probation

On Monday, a judge ordered former University of Hartford student Brianna Brochu into a probation program after she was charged with criminal mischief and breach of peace. The charges came after Brochu was accused of harassing her former college roommate, Chennel Rowe, last November.

Brochu previously told police she sought revenge against Rowe because she claimed Rowe was rude to her, and posted videos of her snoring online. To retaliate, Brochu told the police she licked Rowe’s dinnerware — and “put tampon blood on her backpack.”

Brochu allegedly wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post that she had also put Rowe’s toothbrush “places where the sun doesn’t shine,” mixed her beauty products with moldy clam dip.” In the post, Brochu, who is white, allegedly called Rowe, who is black, “Jamaican Barbie.” In court, however, Brochu denied all claims made in the Instagram post, having told police she’d lied in the Instagram post in an attempt to “appear funny.” She pled not guilty.

Rowe said Brochu committed “acts of hate” against her, which made her sick and caused her to have trouble succeeding in school (as well as suffering from trust issues, and nightmares).

Judge Omar Williams gave Brochu probation so she could avoid a criminal record — instead, Williams said, Brochu would be punished enough if/when anyone searches her name and reads the stories about her alleged harassment. Despite public outcry and demands from the NAACP that she be charged under hate crime laws, Hartford State Attorney Gail Hardy said they didn’t seek those charges because investigators didn’t find any previous racist messaging on her social media pages.

And because Rowe didn’t oppose Brochu’s request for an “accelerated rehabilitation” program, her probation program includes 200 hours of community service, and she must also complete a mental health evaluation. Rowe attended the sentencing on Monday, and gave a statement: “By giving her this second chance, I hope she will change her ways and finds love for all mankind no matter what race,” she said.

Brochu’s attorney, Tom Stevens, apologized to Rowe on his client’s behalf on Monday. He said Brochu wanted to apologize sooner, but that he had advised her not to because of a potential civil lawsuit. If Brochu completes the community service and isn’t charged with any other crimes, the criminal mischief and breach of peace charges will be dropped in two years.
