Plugs

For Sale: Tuffy, an one-year-old standard poodle, light chocolate brown in color. He is a well-potty-trained, indoor dog. $250. Contact jprahm@gustavus.edu. (The Obamas passed...)

'All I Want Is a Room Somewhere'... Peter Shea, who will be teaching "Philosophy for Children" for the Gustavus Philosophy Department during the January Interim, needs a place to stay in St. Peter for that period. "It doesn't have to be fancy: a room would be fine, especially if I had access to a kitchen. It has to be pretty quiet at night, and the air quality has to be good: I don't do well with smoke and I am allergic to cats. I won't have much stuff, and I likely will be gone on weekends, so this would be a pretty painless sublet opportunity, if someone is going out of town. I can be somewhat flexible about moving-in and moving-out days; I just need housing for the major part of the time I am working in St. Peter. Any help or referrals you could give me would be appreciated." Contact Peter Shea at shea0017@umn.edu or 612-250-4207.
