Diana and Patti express outrage over the light sentence that Santa Barbara’s Judge Hill,

Patti Teel

Patti Teel

imposed upon a 19 year old man who was convicted of felony animal cruelty.  This puppy was tortured throughout his short life and and died after suffering unimaginable abuse.  A March of Mourning is being planned in Santa Barbara on July 19th, to call attention to this light sentence and to show our lawmakers that we support maximum sentences for those convicted of felony animal cruelty. Like an ‘Amber Alert,’ Diana would also like to start a ‘Davey’s Alert’ to let communities throughout the country be on the alert for animal abusers.  Please come back to this site for more details about the upcoming march and ways you can help to call attention to the rights of animals.  For the latest information, you can also visit  https://www.facebook.com/justiceforpuppydavey

On a lighter note, Patti interviews Douglas Borcoman.  He created the first online Environmental Ethics course for Coastline College and for CSU (CA State University).  Douglas is the recipient of local and national awards for classroom and teaching excellence.  He’s also an avid hiker, poet, philosopher and astronomer.  He recently led a stargazing event at Sedona Mago Retreat and the enthusiastic response of participants was phenomenal!   To learn more about Douglas, visit https://philosophicalquest.coursesites.com/
