  • Getting fixed when you’re broke, feline edition: Benzie Animal Welfare League spokesperson Norma Awl confirms that on February 25 from 10 am to noon at the Benzie Animal Shelter, coupons for discounts on spaying and neutering will be handed out. “Cats only, Benzie residents only, ID required.” Check with your vet to make sure they will honor the coupon and what the cost will be. Northwoods Animal Hospital and Betsie River Veterinary Clinic both accept coupons.

  • The deadline to register to vote in the Presidential Primary (February 28) is January 30. Contact township clerk Sharyn Bower at 231-352-4901 between 5 pm and 8 pm to register, or you can register at the Secretary of State office.

  • On Wednesday [Jan. 24], the Greater Traverse Continuum of Care is counting homeless people in the five-county region. 740 homeless were counted last year.
