The general consensus in the Turlock Journal office on Monday was "awwww, he's so cute!" The coos and baby talk were in response to a blind kitten that was brought in by LeeAnne Pinkerton from the Friends of Turlock Animals shelter. The kitten, who is looking for a home, sauntered around the conference room table, exploring with his paws and nose, oblivious to the bright flash of the camera that would usually scare a cat his age.

In July of 1950, Amos Moss scribbled a letter to his father from a fox hole in Korea. The note was on a Father's Day card that his sergeant had given him. Until he was handed the card, he didn't even realize what day it was. Moss wrote to his father that he missed him and was proud to be his son. He sent the letter back to his father, Amos Moss Sr., in the states and didn't think much about it after that.
