WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement today on his intent to vote against cloture and final confirmation for the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court:
“After meeting with Judge Gorsuch and reviewing his testimony and past decisions, I’ve observed that he has repeatedly taken an activist approach to cases involving a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her health. He has made the astounding argument that bosses have an individual right to prevent their company’s female employees from using their own health insurance to buy contraception. He has taken extraordinary steps to force reconsideration

Oct. 26, 2008: Roanoke Valley SPCA held its 16th Annual Walk for the Animals in Elmwood Park. Jean Jadhon, WDBJ7 anchor and radio station K92 were the main sponsors of the event. Weatherman Brent Watts was one of the judges.
There was a “dog walk” around through downtown though it could be argued that Amy Sparks’ Great Perinese was walking her. The walk culminated with a costume contest with categories for the scariest, cutest, and the owner that looked most like his dog. It was a tough call except for the look a-like contest. Shawn Mason and his Wolf Hound, Cider, won that category hands down. Jean Jadhon claimed that Cider looked more like weatherman Robin Reed but Robin was not there to defend himself.
Kujo, a Saint Bernard with red coloring dribbled on his fur won scariest. Emily Nichols with three varieties of dogs dressed as cops and robbers won cutest. Kathy Perdue, Marketing Director and Special Events Coordinator for the SPCA was in charge of the fundraiser and said they raised $30,000 and she was still counting.
