His water partially frozen in a bowl behind him, this big-eyed canine at the Clinton animal shelter may be wishing for a loving owner and something to keep him warm from the freezing temperatures that enveloped Clinton this week.

Plans for a new city-operated animal shelter have been put on hold.

City Manager Mark Skiles confirmed Thursday that Fetch Inc. has withdrawn from a memorandum of understanding approved by the City Council last February under which a new $300,000 facility was going to be built with Fetch raising money to pay half the cost.

Fifteen-year school board veteran Rod Kinney, who has been chairman of the Clinton Board of Education three times, has decided to retire from his position. The local banker has heard of the possibility of one and maybe two candidates seeking his seat.

Baker Hughes Inc., one of Clinton’s major employers, will be acquired by Halliburton in a stock-and-cash deal valued at $34.6 billion, it was announced Monday.

The deal will make Halliburton the largest oil-and-gas service company in the United States, surpassing Schlumberger.
