PIKE’S CORNER Ok so I am apparently a criminal if you read my mom’s Pet Chronicle about my super bad sister last week. I have to say in my defense that it is mostly true but unlike Bamboo, I do not go out of my way to be bad I just happen to fi nd myself in situations that depending on your view point could be perceived as well… criminal. I tried to re-imagine myself this week as a nice English bloke instead of the Hawaii renegade that I am. I imagined fi rst living in a castle like in Harry Potter, rich tapestries surround me, dark wall paneling lines the halls. The sofas are leather and the smell of a books from the vast library where my mom spend most of her time permeate the house. The smell of a crumb cake and scones with clotted cream drift out from the kitchen. I take afternoon tea with my family with a bit of milk and a lump of sugar making it sweet and delicious. Mom takes her afternoon tea with milk and honey so I may try that as well. I lay on the rug by a crackling fi re and take in the days events which including chasing rabbits in the garden and getting my feet dipped in warm sudsy water when I came back inside to as to not get the house dirty. In my adventure as an English dog I imagine speaking with a grand accent and saying things like brilliant and fantastic. I watched the telly with my sister and sat with my dad as he had a pint at the pub after work with some friends. I just walked right in alongside him and no one seemed to notice. I really liked being a British dog, so much so in fact I am thinking of trying to recreate my imaginary high street dog adventures all the time. I am having a bit of trouble with the “pinky out” during tea, but I am learning to speak words I had not heard before, and I am getting it. I am spending my days watching things like Harry Potter and Top Gear to get the really sense of the British vocabulary. Perhaps by the next time you see me I will be channeling Prince William or Sherlock Holmes. Maybe I will be eating baked potatoes with sweet corn, tuna fi sh and mayonnaise or Bangers and Mash. I looked up British food and it all looks amazing. I asked my mom and she said you can also get some really good curry in London as well as fi sh and chips. She then told me a story about taking my sister to London and showed me pictures of it as well; what can I say it sounds like a great place for me. Here is to my imagination running on over drive and to sweet dreams of Stonehenge and Westminster Abbey and all things British. I need to go and do a bit more research so I can make this imaginary adventure a reality. I think I will go stick my head in the freezer so I can see what a crisp morning might be like. Mom says it will not be the same but it can’t hurt for me to try right? Let’s do this… Umm BURRR!!! I may need to get myself one of those puffy parkas before I set off. Maybe I can borrow my sisters coat? Ruff Ruff!! Well what do to know… I look great in purple ~ Ruff. 808-322-2988/Fax 808-322-2303 7:30-5:00 Monday-Friday 78-6728 Walua Road • Kailua Kona www.keauhouvet.com 8-5 pm on Saturday Emergency call 24/7 Pike Jacob Head, DVM Prices good Friday & Saturday only!

If confirmed that the piece of tail section came from Flight MH370, a small piece of the puzzle will have been found, but it might not be enough to help solve one of aviation’s greatest mysteries. In an interview with The Associated Press, Blaine Gibson described how a boat operator took him to a sandbar named Paluma and then called him over after seeing a piece of debris with “NO STEP” written on it. “It was so light,” said Gibson, who has told reporters that he has spent a long time searching for evidence of missing Flight MH370. Photos of the debris appear to show the fixed leading edge of the right-hand tail section of a Boeing 777, said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly. Flight MH370 is the only known missing 777. Astronomers spot record distant galaxy from early cosmos WASHINGTON— Astronomers say they have discovered a hot, star-popping galaxy that is far, far away — farther than any previously detected, from a time when the universe was a mere toddler of about 400 million years old. By employing a different technique — one that has raised some skepticism — a team of astronomers exposed a time period they’d thought was impossible to observe with today’s technology. They used the Hubble Space Telescope and found the light wave signature of an extremely bright galaxy 13.4 billion light-years away, according to a study published Thursday by Astrophysical Journal. The margin of error is plus or minus 5 million light-years. A light-year is about 5.8 trillion miles. It shatters old records for distance and time in a big way, and may remain the farthest that can be seen for years, until a new space telescope is launched, the team of astronomers said. With that light signature, astronomers were able to produce a photo of this galaxy that’s fuzzy and all-too deceptive in color. It appears darkish red and indistinct, when in reality it’s so hot it is bright blue, but the light has traveled so long and far that it has shifted to the very end of the color spectrum, to dark red. And that fuzziness masks an incredible rate of star formation that’s 10 times more frenetic than our Milky Way, said study co-author Gabriel Brammer, an astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute. Teacher loses job after student takes her phone, shares nude COLUMBIA, S.C. — A high school teacher lost her job after a teenager went through her cellphone between classes, found a nude picture of her and shared it on social media. No students have been disciplined, pending a police investigation. Union County School District Superintendent David Eubanks, who forced Leigh Anne Arthur to resign or be fired, said Thursday that it’s her fault for leaving students unattended during a four-minute break between classes. “She has tried to make this out as though it was strictly related to the photos,” Eubanks told The Associated Press. “I could care less what her pictures are on the cellphone.” More than 8,000 people signed a petition by Thursday afternoon urging that the teacher get her job back. Nearly 3,000 commented as well, many expressing shock that the victim is being blamed. Arthur, 33, told police on Feb. 18 that while she stepped out of her classroom, a 16-yearold boy took her unlocked smartphone from her desk, opened the photos application and found a nude selfie she had taken for her husband as a Valentine’s present. Then, using his own phone, the boy took a picture of the image and shared it. Soon, other students were sharing it on social media, and someone left copies, along with a harassing note, in Arthur’s mailbox. By wire sources in brief
