ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — When Alexis Kozmon and her husband decided to get a dog for their 6-year-old daughter, they chose to adopt rather than buy from a breeder to teach the child the value of rescuing.Four weeks later, the puppy the family named Sugar was dying painfully from distemper, and despite $3,000 in veterinary treatments, the only humane option was to put her down. Two of Sugar's siblings met the same fate. Kozmon faulted the volunteer-based rescue that had trucked the puppies from Texas, but when she complained to New York's consumer protection agency, she learned such groups are exempt from oversight."There was a loophole," said Kozmon, who lives in Middletown, Connecticut, but adopted from a group in southeastern New York.

By John McMurtrie - Tuesday Sep 26, 2017
Margaret Wilkerson Sexton is well familiar with Berkeley, having graduated from UC Berkeley School of Law. This week, the New Orleans native, who now lives in Oakland, will be back in Berkeley not as a student, but as a celebrated author. Sexton’s debut novel, “A Kind of Freedom” (published by Counterpoint Press of Berkeley), has been receiving high praise from critics and was recently long-listed for the National Book Award for Fiction. The story follows the travails, over three generations, of a New Orleans family that must confront, like millions of others in this country, pervasive racism in its quest to attain something like the American dream. Sexton will read from her novel at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 28, at Books Inc.
