Search for a Raw Food Family to be on a popular Family TV show
To Whom It May Concern:

I'm a Casting Producer with ABC Television and we're
looking to feature fabulous families who follow the raw foods
diet - or a similar philosophy - on our upcoming show.  I'd love
to talk with families who are passionate about truly living and
eating healthy. Has this diet enhanced your quality of life - or
influenced your lifestyle and parenting style in other positive
ways?  Could another family learn a thing or two by experiencing
your lifestyle?
We want to hear from you!

We're currently casting for ABC's hit family show,
Wife Swap! Please don't be confused by the title - Wife Swap is
a family show on ABC primetime. The premise is simple: two moms
from two very different families get the opportunity to swap lives
(but not bedrooms - everyone has their own!) for a week to
experience what it's like to live a different lifestyle - and to see
what they can teach each other about their own!   The goal is for
both families to take away something positive from the experience
while also teaching each other why their beliefs and
philosophies are so important and beneficial.  

Again, I think the raw
foods movement is a fascinating philosophy that many families may
never have heard of - and could possibly benefit from!  I found your
information online and thought you would be a great resource - I would
greatly appreciate you forwarding my information on to any
families who might be interested in sharing their lives with us
for a week!

All featured families will receive a $20,000
financial honorarium for their time - and $1000 goes to anyone who refers
a family that makes it on the show! We are looking for two parent
families with children (between the ages of 5 and 18) who are
ready for adventure! I appreciate your assistance in reaching
out to these great families and look forward to hearing from you

Woman Arrested For Animal Cruelty (US )

Jan 13 - A 31-year-old Kyle woman is facing jail time Thursday night for killing her husband's dog. It started as a domestic dispute and ended when the woman grabbed the dog and a knife.

The gruesome nature of this crime could send the woman to prison for several years.

"This was a particularly nasty crime and such a criminal act is not going to be tolerated here in the city of Austin," Lt. Doug Dukes with APD Strategic Command said.

An act simply heinous by definition, and a woman obviously saddled with emotional problems. Thirty-one-year-old Joanne Hinojosa turned herself in to police just before 3 p.m.

Police say she butchered her estranged husband's dog stabbing it 27 times.

"Family violence and cruelty to animals are very, very closely related. Usually when one happens, it's not far off for the other on to happen soon after," Dukes said.

That is how witnesses say this started, when Hinojosa came to her estranged husband's house. Police say they argued. She took a swing at him, and he ran down the street and called police.

It was then Hinojosa called the dog, took her inside and started stabbing.

"A lot of times when you're seeing domestic abuse or child abuse situations happen you're also going to have animal abuse in these same types of households. So there's not anything that's going to predict the kind of person that would do that," TLAC Director Dorinda Pulliam said.

The dog was taken to the Ben White Pet Hospital for emergency surgery. Because of blood loss and severe organ damage, she was euthanized.

"This will not be tolerated and we're going to deal with it to the full extent of the law," Dukes said.

Hinojosa faces up to four years behind bars and a $14,000 fine for family violence and animal cruelty charges.

Bond was set at $30,000. Additional charges are pending.

"Animal cruelty is a crime, and it's something that needs to be taken seriously. If you're involved in harming an animal, you can do felony time for that so it is something we take very seriously," Pulliam said.

The dog, named Marti, suffered stab wounds to the abdomen, lungs, spleen, diaphragm and other internal organs.

Police found the dog with the knife blade still in the abdomen.

Police say Mrs. Hinojosa also caused damage to her husband's truck, and his friend's truck.

Because of that, criminal mischief charges could also be filed.
