Aviation and Animal Rescue Making a Positive Impact

Publication: GREENVILLE NEWS
Publication Date: 2017-01-12
Publication Author: DEBI BOIES

Throughout the country, each year more than 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized due to shelter overcrowding.  Overburdened shelters take in 7.6 million stray, abused, surrendered, or lost animals every year, and the simple fact is that in many places they are taken into shelters faster than they can be adopted.

The problem is compounded by animals that are not neutered or spayed, which account for 90 percent of the animals that enter animal shelters. “No-kill” shelters help to absorb some of these animals as well, but such shelters have limited capacity and frequently do not

Privatizing Air Traffic Control is a Mistake

Each year, trucks move 9.2 billion tons of freight across the United States. The trucking industry employs 1.4 million workers, and each day transports pretty much anything you can think of — tools, parts, materials, vehicles, animals, equipment … you name it, we transport it. When I started in 1996, I could not have imagined that we would eventually have 325 trucks and 1,000 trailers hauling manufacturing and consumer goods across the U.S., and even into Mexico and Canada. Yet, you might be surprised to know that this growth was only possible because of general aviation.

Regarding the Dec. 14 editorial, “Trump election could be breakthrough for S.J. aviation research”:

This editorial unfortunately missed a few key points about a recent proposal to privatize the nation’s air traffic control system.

First, all agree the air traffic control system needs to be upgraded to continue important progress being made toward satellite-based, NextGen technology. But privatizing the air traffic control system would result in many more problems than it would solve, and leave smaller businesses and communities out.

For example, the non-partisan Government Accountability Office cautioned it could not guarantee that privatizing air traffic
