The Catfish FestivalBuys K9 Asher A Vest


Profits from the Shoals Catfish Festival recently enabled Martin County K9 Officer Asher to receive a new protective vest. Sheriff’s Department Major Andy Burkhardt, Asher’s partner, thanks the Festival Steering Committee for the $850 donation needed for the vest. Asher, a German Shepherd, posed beside Andy atop a gypsum rock located on the lawn between the Martin County Museum and the Security Center, in West Shoals. — Shoals News Photo by Audra P. Deckard
