Q: This going to sound like a stupid question, but our neighbor's dog comes into our yard and does his business. Is there anything that we can do to stop this? We don't own dogs and feel we shouldn't have to clean up after someone else's pet. A: Thank you for picking up after your neighbor's dog, but you are correct it is not your job. Pet waste is not only a smelly, unsightly problem but it can also pollute our water supply ( clean-water.uwex.edu/pubs/pdf/pet.pdf).
Q: My friend is addicted to opioids and one time I thought he overdosed. If I call 911 to get help for my friend, will I get in trouble?

Q: Are dashboard and windshield mount/holder for global positioning systems/navigational systems legal for use? A: Yes. You can now lawfully use a GPS in your automobile if mounted properly. The GPS must be mounted near the bottommost part of a vehicle's windshield. I want to caution you that the navigational system must be mounted in the "bottommost" portion of the window, the system must not obstruct your vision of the road. If mounted too high on the windshield, you may be stopped for a windshield obstruction.
