Dog bites commissioner

As the Clark County Commissioners got into the ins and outs of increasing fines for those who haven’t licensed their dogs and cats Tuesday, Commissioner Steve Stuart said he was a bit worried that the increased fine of $100 for no license was the same as the fine for a vicious dog.

In a court of law, that’s like giving the same penalty to someone who committed an assault as someone who was driving without a license.

Commissioner Tom Mielke joined in on the talk and as they went back and forth, Mielke finally said to Stuart: “Obviously, you’ve never been bit by a dog.”

“I have, actually!” Stuart replied. “On my fanny by a German Shepherd while I was delivering papers. It was my friend’s dog too!”

We didn’t ask Stuart if he has any lasting scars.
