Blind woman says she and service dog were booted from American Airlines flight

A blind woman claims she and her guide dog were asked to leave an American Airlines plane after an employee called her "a danger to the flight."

According to the Portland Press-Herald and WLBZ, Sue Martin, 61, of Franklin, Maine, was traveling to San Diego earlier this month when she tried to take a connecting flight with her husband and service dog from Washington, D.C., to Dallas.

Martin told the Press-Herald that the trouble began when she realized there was no room for her dog, a German shepherd named Quan, near her seat. She then asked a flight attendant and ticketing agent about switching seats or upgrading to first-class but was denied, the Press-Herald reported

Martin thought the problem had been solved when a first-class passenger gave her his seat, but then an employee asked her to leave, she said.

"The man said, 'You have to leave the plane,'" Martin told WLBZ. "I asked him why and he said the crew had decided I was a danger to the flight. I've never had anything  happen like this before."

American Airlines said it is "thoroughly investigating these allegations" and takes "all disability complaints very seriously," WLBZ reported.

Cat yoga: Felines, humans get zen together in new classes

Yoga lovers in Georgia are getting into downward-facing dog with the assistance of a few friendly cats.

The “Yoga With Cats” class has become a regular, sold-out feature at Good Mews Animal Foundation in the Atlanta suburb of Marietta in just a few months since it launched.

In each class, up to 15 humans spend an hour getting zen with a some of the shelter’s feline residents. A certified yoga instructor guides the beginner level classes as the cats roam freely around the room – often stopping for a little class participation or maybe a nap.

“The cats are so curious. They are all up in your business but not in a bad way,”  said shelter manager Lisa Johns. “It is also a fun way for people to interact with the cats. The cats get attention and get loved on and the people are in a calming environment where they can practice yoga and hang out. All and all, it is a fun experience if you are into yoga and you are a cat person.”

Each class costs $20 – and since the instructor is a Good Mews volunteer who donates her time, all of the proceeds go toward care of the cats.

A few months ago, the creators weren’t so sure the idea would take off with the public. They heard about a shelter in California that did something similar and decided to give it a try.

“We are always trying to get new people into the shelter,” said board member, Nancy Riley. “We started our first class in July, and now people are coming back month after month. The people love it, but the cats really love it. It is so fun to watch them.”

In any given class, at least five of the 15 attendees have never been to Good Mews shelter before offering the organization valuable exposure to new people and the potential to find more homes for their cats.

Some of the cats have become yoga regulars, as well. Sampson, an orange tabby, has participated in every class, often getting into poses with humans. During corpse pose (savasana) at end of class, Sampson and his fellow felines take the invitation to lie across the chest of the nearest yogi.

Ouch! 5 home features that hurt your home's resale value most, according to an Atlanta realtor

If you're thinking of selling anytime soon, you may want to dump those 1970s avocado appliances and invest in some stainless steel.

According to Berkshire Hathaway Home Services realtor Susan Castle, having a kitchen no one's remodeled in 30 years is like begging for a lower offer. "Outdated kitchens decrease sales prices dramatically, because buyers are quick to realize the money to update them will be coming out of their own pockets after the sale," she said.

You may be looking at as much as a $10,000 reduction in your list price if potential buyers are looking at an outdated kitchen. "I would recommend at the very minimum that sellers install new appliances," Castle said.

Along with taking a long, hard look at the kitchen, Castle and Kara Conway, a realtor at Virtual Properties Realty in Snellville, recommend fixing the following home features before they slash your list price.

Bad carpeting

"Update the carpeting, please!" Conway said. "Awful carpet from the '70s and '80s can really discourage buyers."

It can also encourage buyers to ask for a several-thousand-dollar replacement allowance. If you can make the switch with less expense, do it.

Part of the carpeting conundrum involves outdated colors, like blue or green instead of today's preferred neutrals. "Even if a carpet is brand new, if it's not in a modern color, it will have to be replaced," Conway said. "Old-style colors make a buyer assume the carpet is old, too."

Bath fixtures

Replacing outdated bathroom fixtures is another way to protect your home's resale value with little expense. "The faux crystal knobs and brass fixtures are very '80s," said Conway. "Replace them with a more modern option."

Bathroom counters

Laminate counters might have been a necessity when your house was built, but there's no need to keep them if you're selling. "You can replace them with granite or even solid wood and repaint the cabinets for $1,000 or so and add $5,000 to the price of your home," Conway said.

The front yard

Having a rangy lawn or unkempt gardens might burn the whole sale altogether. "Pay to have the beds weeded, the grass edged, maybe a fresh coat of pine straw," Conway said. "The curb is the first impression. If it's not presentable, you may not get any serious buyers at all."

When Rohnert Park police Sgt. Rick Bates arrived, Starbucks employees were trying to feed Milly a banana, but she was more interested in a nearby box, he told the AP. He took the goat to the local animal shelter until the owner, Alan Ergenbright, got word and came to retrieve her.

"We are pleased to report the goat's owner sprung him from the Animal Shelter," the department wrote on its Facebook page Sunday evening. "Thanks to our followers for the assist!"
