My just-after-Earth Day message is this: There is an alligator in my lake.
Actually, that may not quite true, the little fellow—between two and three feet in length—may be a Spectacled Caiman or a species that goes by the name of Cuvier’s Dwarf Caiman. All three of these crocodilians are available in the pet trade, and Missouri, where my lake is located, has the most spectacularly lax regulations for exotic pets in the nation.

We must secure the existence of our people and the future of White children. — David Lane’s 14-word creed.
Hardly any concept is thrown around as carelessly these days as “white supremacy.” It has become the go-to term of condemnation, applied as loosely as “fascism,” with similar ramifications in terms of lack of clarity.
By Ben Felder Staff Writer firstname.lastname@example.orgNinety-seven public school districts across Oklahoma now operate just four days a week, which is twice as many as last year.
Districts that have made the decision to drop one day a week are mostly rural school systems with a combined enrollment of 47,000, or just 7 percent of all Oklahoma public school students, according to an analysis of October enrollment numbers from the state Department of Education.
Most schools that have moved to a four-day school week said it was an effort to cut costs on transportation, utilities and support staff.
But many district leaders also have said it is used as a tool to recruit and retain teachers as schools struggle to compete with the higher salaries offered in neighboring states.
Two-thirds of schools with a four-day week are within 50 miles of the state border and include school districts just a short drive from Arkansas and Texas, which have siphoned many teachers in recent years.
The growth in four-day schedules have even put pressure on some Oklahoma districts to consider the change as a way to retain teachers.
"We had two (Oklahoma) districts very close to us that moved to four-day weeks and we have lost some teachers to them," said David Pennington, superintendent of Ponca City Public Schools in northern Oklahoma.
Ponca City school leaders are discussing the idea of moving to a four-day week, which Pennington said will depend on what type of education budget the state Legislature hands down next month.
While he said a three-day weekend could help recruit teachers, Pennington also believes there are some cost savings associated with the switch, even if it's minimal.
“My initial reaction is that I don't think it really saves us a whole lot of money, but that's not to say it doesn't save any money at all,” Pennington said.
By Brianna Bailey Staff Writer email@example.comEmily Deffner described her father, Timothy "Michael" Deffner, as an angry, unpredictable man with a red face, big nose and a bowed-out chest, in a request for a protective order she filed against him.
Michael Deffner once sent his daughter photographs of a knife and threatened to slit her boyfriend's throat and kill him, she said in the petition.
In a separate request for a protective order, Michael Deffner's wife, Cayann Patterson Deffner, said her husband possessed multiple guns that belonged to her mother and that he had threatened to kill her and her children.
"He hides guns throughout our house — most recently in my daughter's room," Cayann Deffner, wrote in a 2015 application for a protective order against her estranged husband
Two five-year protective orders — filed separately in two counties — didn't stop Michael Deffner, 55, from using a .30-caliber hunting rifle to shoot and kill Cayann Deffner, 49, and her divorce attorney, Bryan Young, 47, in Norman in February.
