A double shot of good economic news--
The government says employers added nearly 250- thousand jobs last month.
May was the third straight month of solid growth.
That's validating the opinion that the job market is finally healthy enough to allow the Fed to raise interest rates for the first time in nearly four years.
Meanwhile, crude oil futures are trading below 39-dollars a barrel, following OPEC's announcement that it would boost production.

A Franklin County veterinarian has accepted the fine and punishment of the state veterinary board.
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Roanoke/February 4]

A committee concluded Dr. Richard Flint "practiced veterinary medicine so as to endanger the health and welfare of his patients." The Committee proposed a fine of 10-thousand dollars and a four-month suspension of Flint's license. He had two weeks to decide whether to appeal. He chose not to fight it, and last week the Board accepted that decision.
[SUPER=03-Franklin Co.]

The case stemmed from the death of a dog at Noah's Ark Animal Complex while Dr. Flint was pre-occupied with a photo shoot of the clinic. That case was one of nine instances where Flint was found to have violated state laws and regulations.
