Help Rooster the rooster find his new forever home!

Help Rooster the rooster find his new forever home!

Update: ADOPTED! But don't leave yet! Roosters can be hard for animal shelters to adopt out, and our rooster, Rooster, wants to help his roostery friends in other shelters get some visibility, too! (And... maybe barn homes of their own?!?!)

Rocco the rooster is available from our friends over at Loudoun County Animal Services: https://www.loudoun.gov/534/Available-Pets

And if you want to take a little drive out to the Calvert County Animal Shelter, they have six roosters available (Barnaby and the NSYNC boys!!): https://calvertcountyanimalshelter.com/181/Other-Animals-Available-for-Adoption

This rooster's name is Rooster. He was surrendered because he wasn't technically allowed to live where he was, due to county ordinance. He is EXTREMELY handsome and majestic-looking!!!!!!!! Also he is sometimes afraid of tomatoes, but only for a second, and please don't make fun of him for it. When a staff person gently tossed a small tomato into his coop for him, he squawked and ungracefully ran away! But just a short distance, and soon enough he came back to happily eat said intruder tomato. Rooster is looking to live that country life, and is hoping someone out there has a barn with some property big enough for him. He's a friendly, docile rooster and he doesn't mind being held. If you'd like to adopt, send in a completed adoption questionnaire and we'll go from there! All adoption info, steps, and forms can be found online at: www.fairfaxcounty.gov/animalshelter/adopt/steps

Tami’s music is a like…a riveting mystery novel you can’t put down. With each song she sings, she reveals another clue to her soul. She crosses all genres of music, wrapped in her voice is the sweetness and twang of country, the sorrow and guts of rhythm and blues, and the hope and reverence of gospel. When sewn together, Tami is a portrait of strength -- a strong woman with a story that needs to be told. Born and raised in Oklahoma with loving support and an abundance of music, she is an internationally known soul/pop/blues singer probably best known for the global hit song "The Sugar Shack” in 2017, which propelled her to Billboard Magazine’s #1 Breakout Artist of the Week and a 12 week run on the charts. Among other albums and musical triumphs, she has also just written a new EP Together Apart, recorded virtually with her band while isolating. While witnessing the uncertainty of the world, and like many other kindred spirits during this time, Tami found comfort in music.

Living On Music host and producer Steve Houk is a three-time Emmy-winning TV writer, director and producer, and music writer for his own website livingonmusic.com and other websites, as well as a lead singer in several local bands.

Join Steve and Tami for another remarkable edition of Z TV's Living On Music, this Monday night at 7:00 pm on Z-TV on Facebook. Click GET REMINDER below and you’ll be pinged right before the show on Monday.

Bulletin from your Living On Music host...I was interviewed for a story yesterday about what my COVID test was like, thanks to a former DC TV colleague now at WINK TV in Florida. Funny talking about what it felt like when I put something up my nose.
I'm looking forward to my discussion tomorrow evening (July 14 at 7:00 pm) with Ralph Peluso on Z-TV! We'll be talking about the two books I've written -- one about a WWII medic who served in Europe entitled "I Closed Too Many Eyes" -- and the other about my Norwegian emigrant grandmother entitled "I Couldn't Milk Another Goat." To see a short video on my grandmother see: www.tinyurl.com/CarriesBio Hope you'll tune in!
This would be a great story for the Zebra! Alexandria’s very own Margaret Chisley turns 109 today. She is a living legend and deserves local media coverage. Still here and can enlighten us ALL on the changes her city has made. Let’s show Ms. Chisley some love AVA! What a blessing to be 109 years old.
My little noticed the bin fell over, so she made me stop so she could fix it 😂 We can’t wait until the papers come our way 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
I, Kelly Hutchinson, am a victim of abuse of power by politicians & law enforcement in the City of Alexandria, VA and Oxford, MD. The abuse started under former Mayor Bill Euille and former Police Chief Earl Cook. Politicians and law enforcement in Alexandria deliberately escalated a dispute with my neighbors which resulted in me being placed under U.S. Marshal Federal Protection and at least two of my neighbors going to prison. In order to cover up the ethic issues within the police department and government the city sued themselves and my neighbors on my behalf without my consent. An agreement was created by the neighbors and city which prohibits me from consulting with an attorney or speaking about my situation with anyone. This ordeal started about seven years ago and during that time I have lost my home, a rental property, my brick & mortar business and my online business. The abuse by Maryland and Virginia law enforcement includes but not limited to: refusing to enforce restraining orders, allowing criminal noise harassment at all hours of the day and night to cause me extreme emotional pain, mirroring my electronic devices & sharing sensitive personal info. with the individuals abusing me to cause more pain, abusing thermal imaging protective surveillance in order to time the harassment based on my location in the house, tracking my movements with my cell phone, using my electronic devices to listen to personal conversations, interfering with my online business to stop cash flow, refusing to arrest and remove the individuals that are stalking, harassing, emotionally & financially abusing me and my 84 year old mother. The amount of police resources being used in this civil lawsuit is appalling. In order to prove the unprecedented lawsuit the situation has been repeated in Oxford, MD where I live with my mother. I have contacted numerous Maryland and Virginia Government offices requesting that they dissolve the agreement that I never consented to and that is keeping me trapped, abused and in unknown danger but no one is willing to help me. I am now turning to the press in hopes that exposing this injustice will end it. If you are able to assist me please contact Joe King attorney at 703-683-7070. Thank you.
