And by Sunday evening, the AFC East will have its division leader — barring a tie.Two teams in the division remain undefeated: the Patriots and the Bills. Buffalo, led by sophomore starting quarterback Josh Allen, will host the reigning Super Bowl champion Patriots and Tom Brady. To this point, the Bills have won by narrow margins against more lackluster talent. They beat the Jets Week 1 17-16. They won against the Giants 28-14. They came back late against the Bengals 21-17. Those three teams are a combined 1-8, with the Giants picking up the win last week thanks to a comeback effort from rookie Daniel Jones.The Patriots have won against a similarly weak slate of teams, but in much different ways. It trounced the Steelers 33-3, blanked the Dolphins 43-0 and rolled the Jets 30-14. Those teams are a combined 0-9. Week 4 NFL PICKS:Against the spread | Straight-up picksBut New England has established early that it is one of the premier teams on both sides of the ball. Brady continues to be an ageless wonder, having completed 72 of 106 passes for 911 yards and seven touchdowns, and both Rex Burkhead and Sony Michel have rushed for more than 100 yards. The defense has allowed the fewest yards per game at just 199 — 84.3 yards fewer than second — and it averages just 5.7 points allowed per game. The offense is fifth in yards per game (408.3) and second in points (36.7).Meanwhile Allen, though leading the team to a spotless record, has himself been far from spotless, having completed just 66 of 103 passes for three touchdowns and interceptions a piece. He has rushed 26 times for 105 yards with two touchdowns.The Pats opened as touchdown favorites over the hosting Bills, per Sportsbook Review. Bill Belichick’s team seems to be once again one of the best in the league, if not the one in the best position to again win the Super Bowl. But the game is in Buffalo, and Sean McDermott has led Buffalo to success before — his 2017 team was the first postseason Bills team in 18 years. If his team can get the edge on Sunday, it could signal a true battle for AFC East supremacy. Below is all the info you need to watch the Patriots vs. Bills on Sunday, including the TV channels and kickoff time.What channel is Patriots vs. Bills on today?TV channel (national): CBSTV channel (New England): WBZTV channel (Buffalo): WIVBLive stream: fuboTV (regional)The game will be available live on CBS in select market areas, mostly centered around the New York and New England areas.

Hey, national news types, Wellington’s cat law isn’t that uncommon!

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Wellington, Kansas has been getting a lot of national exposure concerning its new law limiting the number of cats per household. But Wellington city officials are puzzled as to why.The new city law enacted on Dec. 18, which limits the number of cats to four per owner is not unusual, said Tracy Heath, Wellington City Police Chief. Actually, it is quite commonplace.“I know Ark City does, and there are several other communities who have cat regulations,” Heath said. “In fact when we started the process a year and a half ago I did some research around the state. And there are several communities that limit the number of animals per household.“In fact, there are other communities that have had a similar law for years. And I’d venture to say there are cities in other states that have a similar ordinance.”So why was Wellington singled out making it a national news story?“I haven’t a clue,” Heath said.Perhaps, the answer may be timing, and how news disseminates these days.Earlier this week, a news report on ABC News had listed Wellington’s cat limitation law as one of the many “oddball” laws being enacted for 2013. It was attributed to a story on the Wellington Daily News website. Since that broadcast on the morning show Good Morning America on Dec. 31, the story has been repeated throughout the national cable and internet circuit.People have reported to Sumner Newscow that the story was on NBC’s Today Show, the Sean Hannity show on Fox News, The Five on Fox News — not to mention a plethora of national news and gossip websites out there.Shane Farley, owner of Newscow.net in Winfield, said national cable news networks are like news outlets on the local level. There are slow news days. And typically when it comes to news, the week between Christmas and New Years is usually the slowest news week of the year.The new cat stipulation was part of an overall sweeping change to Wellington’s pet ordinance which also included creating an animal control officer, penalizing repeated animal abusers and an exotic pet stipulation (see story here).As far as the cat stipulation, Heath said it isn’t like law enforcement is going to make it a top priority and look for more homes where there are more than four felines. It gives the city a specific law to use in case there are complaints from neighbors about a house with an exorbitant number of cats.Heath reported that through November 2012, the city has picked up 231 cats and has euthanized 201 of those cats for the year.

Thank you for your input. 0 Vote up Vote down Cats galore · 396 weeks ago I’m surprised Farley didn’t comment on what it’s like owning a plethora of cats. I hear he has quite a houseful. Report Reply 0 replies · active 396 weeks ago +2 Vote up Vote down Sonny · 396 weeks ago I think it’s a good law. The cats are running all over the place. The dog has to been controlled so what is so damn wrong with the cat lovers that don’t want to comply, cost ya money. Join the others for tags and shots. I had a trap to get some around my place. I couldn’t let my 2 dogs out with out going out myself looking for cats in or around the yard. They barked and run up and down the fence trying to get at the cats. Maybe I could have just turned them loose but I love animals too. So control you cats. Report Reply 0 replies · active 396 weeks ago +2 Vote up Vote down Jim · 396 weeks ago Sonny I have the feeling you need to get your eyes checked as it was probably a squirrel running on the fence. Maybe we should have an ordinance for having too many of them in your yard and feeding them. I sure see alot of them squashed on the roads every year.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 396 weeks ago +3 Vote up Vote down hah! · 396 weeks ago So everybody with more than 4 cats, you’d better be nice to your neighbors! Report Reply 0 replies · active 396 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down birdfan · 396 weeks ago If it’s a small town in Kansas, it’s quaint or quirky. If it’s a big town in Ca that passes the same law well that’s just common sense to the national media.
