On the Radar: Animal Cruelty Laws
Animal cruelty and neglect are serious crimes that often go unreported. The most common animal victims of these crimes are dogs, cats, horses and livestock. According to the Humane Society of U.S. website, various studies have indicated a strong correlation between animal cruelty and domestic violence.
The biggest changes to our state animal cruelty law include more specific definitions of various abuse and neglect violations and increased penalties for these crimes. It also makes these crimes similar to assaults against a person with various grading dependent on the severity of the injuries.

Personal Profiles: Jason Matthews
Not everyone can say they grew up in their dad’s footsteps and went on to purchase the family business and continue a tradition that began 35 years ago, but Jason Matthews of Matthews Motor Company has done just that.
“I’ve learned a ton from my dad,” says Matthews. “He’s a hard worker and he taught me how to work hard. We’d stay up really late around the kitchen table talking about business, selling cars…he also taught me how to go for it. He encouraged me to take [calculated] risks. If it’s something you’ve thought through and are passionate about, go for it.”
