You can email your questions to to the attention of Freeway. Don't forget folks, Freeway is not a vet, so please keep the questions light-hearted! Thanks. In my last column, I wrote an article on Auto Insurance for Dogs and this week more interesting news Insurance for Pet Damages. Does your homeowners or renter's in- surance cover the damage your pet does? Imagine your doorbell rings and it's that cute little 64 grade little boy from down the street deliv- ering the frozen pizzas you ordered from him for his school fundraiser. You open the door and your normally well-behaved dog wants to greet him, but smelling that pepperoni, he gets a little too friendly, and in his exuber- ance to become his new best friend, he jumps up and ac- cidentally knocks him off the porch and he's injured. Or your next door neighbor calls to tell you that your cat crawled in their base- ment window and shredded a sofa they where storing there. He is not pleased. We expect that our pets may cause minor damage now and then in our own home, but sometimes our pets wreak havoc on a neighbor's property -- or a neighbor -- and we're not always pre- pared to deal with that, In- surance policies vary and often there are not hard and fast rules about pets, but many homeowner policies provide some coverage for liabilities arising from your pet's actions. One of the most costly things your dog can do, and the most common, is to bite someone. Because dog bites are more common than you may imagine, some insur- ance companies have be- come more leery of insuring some breeds of dogs who have garnered a bad reputa- tion for biting. Some insur- ance companies will exclude certain breeds from their policies while others may consider the nature of the individual dog, regardless of breed, if permitted under the state and local laws. So, if you have a breed you suspect may be on your insurance company's black- list, fred out for sure -- you may want to sniff around for another insurance company. I hope you found this ar- ticle interesting. Let's see what I can come up with in my next article. That's all for now. Life isn't bad ff you can keep out of mischief. This is just a reminder.

Saint Gothard-Bishop by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Friends of ours were in Europe during the travel chaos caused by the volcano to fly from Switzerland to Italy they decided to hire a car and drive. Their journey took them through the Saint Gothard Pass, a stunningly beautiful stretch of land, carved out by the Reuss River, connecting the north- ern German-speaking part of Switzerland with the Italian speaking part along the route to Italy. The high mountain pass was known in antiquity but not gener- ally used until the early 13th century. Early in the 13th century the pass was dedicated to Saint Gothard whose Feast is celebrated on May 4th. Gothard was born in the Bavarian village of Reichers- dorf, near the Abbey of Altach about the year 960. He received a lengthy religious education and came to the attention of Archbishop Frederick of Salzburg as a result of his learning and sanctity. He became a priest and in 990 received the monastic habit of the Benedictine Abbey of Nieder- Altach where, shortly, he became prior and finally abbot. As abbot he insisted on the rigorous observance of the Benedictine rule and went on to reform the Abbeys of Hersfeld, in Hesse; Tegernsee, in the Diocese of Freising; and Kremsmfin- ster, in the Diocese of Passau.

Fitzgibbons A Service Family Afiliate of AFFS/Service Corporation International 206 Winter St., Fall River, MA 02720 Telephone 508-676-2454 J On the death of St. Ber- nard. Bishop of Hildesheirn (IO21), Gothard was chosen schools for the education of youth, maintained a rigor- ous personal supervision over his seminary; and fos- tered a strict observance of the liturgy. During the fif- teen years of his episcopate, he won the respect of his clergy and ordered the con- struction of some thirty churches. He also exercised a paternal care for the material needs of his people. After a brief sickness, he died on May 4, 1038. Many churches in Ger- many honor Saint Gothard as patron and several bear his name. Gothard is buried in the cathedral at Hildesheim. He was canon- ized by Pope Innocent 2nd in 1132.
