Hi, you need to take this to the news papers and go public with it. I also
would seek legal advice. I know there is attorneys on the list and they
might give advice or take the case. I also would put in a call to WFLA FM (
100.7 FM ) and get this out to the morning show. Try their number at
850-205-9352. Also see their email address below. I think this will put a
kick in the process and get things on track. I would also if I was the Vet
that own the business I would ban the person and his dog from my place of
business. He should have went in and out the back door of the office or at
least said to the Vet I have a bull dog that is a aggressive towards other
animal and need to bring him or her thru the back door when it is time. JMT!

Hi to everyone,   I know I don't contribute much to this list but do lurk
around a lot.  I wanted all the guide dog people to know what happened to
Santino and me yesterday. It is a bad story but Santino and I are both ok. 

 

I took Santino to the vet for his annual checkup and shots.  While we were
waiting for Dial-A-Ride in the waiting room a man came in to pick up his pit
bull (or part pit bull).  The dog pulled away from the man, raced across the
room to Santino who was lying calmly beside my chair and viciously attacked
Santino.  The barking and my screams brought instant help.  I could feel
that the attack dog had picked Santino up off his feet and was flinging him
around; then he nailed Santino on his back to the floor.  Three vet techs
had a difficult time getting the dogs jaws open so Santino would be
released. 

 

One vet witnessed most of this and as soon as Santino was released took him
back to check him.  Praise God, the attack dog had latched onto Santino's
harness right at his throat.  Santino had no wounds; the vet was shocked,
could hardly believe it; but he and I were and are a very shook up pair
after all that.  While Santino was being checked the man took his dog and
left - he never said a word.  

 

Dial-A-Ride came and the driver saw the man and dog, and said he had no
control of the dog and barely got him into his vehicle.  

 

I called GDB  to report this and ask for advice and they said I should file
a police and animal control report.  The vet's office contacted Animal
Control for information; however they did not file a report. They checked
Fl. statutes and told me the attack dogs owner would be responsible for all
costs if Santino needed any retraining.  

 

The police tried to talk me out of filing a report saying it was not a
crime; the officer who did come to take the report kind of gave the
impression it was a nuciance, and did give it an "incident report."  Today I
called Tallahassee Animal Control to inquire if a report had been filed.
The woman I talked with said she was aware of the call  yesterday; she was
reluctant to say if a report had or had not been filed.  I was insistent;
she then started to tell me what the animal control laws are; I had just
read them online, and pointed out to her there were several violations.  She
then agreed to refer it.  She called me later and said she had contacted the
vet for name and address of the owner; the address was in the county so it
was out of there jurisdiction; I kept pushing and she reluctantly agreed to
refer it to Leon Co Animal Control, which she did.  

 

A deputy came to the house very soon after the referral and was going
investigate and cite the owner. I have no doubt Leon Co. will follow up.
This is all I want.  I want the owners, who later called the vet and said
the dog had never done anything like this before,  to know there dog is a
danger; I  want children and other animals protected from him. 

 

Santino worked pretty well today; he is a little timid; we did not encounter
any other dogs.  GDB advised me to take him back to the vets office several
times next week and give lots of praise and rewards so he does not associate
going to the vet with the trauma.  I am anxious to see how he does the next
time we meet a  stranger dog; I am sure we will have lots of work to do
before he is back to normal.  Any further thoughts or suggestions from any
of you would be appreciated.  Norine

        Like convenience stores you must pay for the convenience. smile. Yes
Star Metro will still have the ticket booth at the plaza. The plaza will
stay in use. People will still be buying weekly passes along with the
monthly pass. 5 busses will still be going to the plaza. They are  A,B,C,D,
an E, Azalea,  Big Bend, Canopy, Dogwood and Evergreen.

                I wonder if there's going to be any way to purchase a fare
card, after C.K. Steel is closed, a fare card without having to pay these
additional processing fees (and also having to possess a credit card)?

                 

                I wonder how many of Star Metro's riders don't own a credit
card?

                 

                Chip

StarMetro Offers Online Purchase of 31-Day Fare Card

Today, StarMetro launches a new application that will allow customers to
purchase a 31-day fare card online with a credit card.

"Currently, customers must purchase fare cards at C.K. Steele Plaza or
StarMetro's main offices off of Appleyard Drive; in addition, customers must
have cash to purchase that fare card," said Ron Garrison, executive director
of StarMetro. "By employing this new application, we will make purchasing
StarMetro fare more convenient for our customers."

In order to purchase a 31-day fare card online, customers must first
register for an account. Through a secure provider, the customer must submit
personal information. Once the customer establishes an account, he/she may
be able to use a credit card to purchase the 31-day fare card. The initial
purchase of a 31-day fare card online will total $43.75. This total includes
a $3.00 service charge, which is applied to the purchase of all new
reloadable fare cards, and a $2.75 processing fee. Within three to five
days, the customer should receive their fare card in the mail.

During the registration process, customers may choose to execute the
automatic reload function, which simply reloads the fare card every 31 days.
This reload will total $40.75; all subsequent reloads will total this
amount, which includes the fare of $38.00 plus the $2.75 processing fee. If
a customer chooses not to execute the automatic reload feature, then that
customer will receive an email expiration notice within five days of the
expiration.

"In the future, we hope to offer more than just our 31-day fare card
online," Garrison said.

The StarCard will also allow customers to access information about
StarMetro's partners via a quick response, or QR, code displayed on the back
of the card.
