"Paws in the Piazza," a novel for middle grade readers by Jerilyn McIntyre, describes the adventures of Harley, a black cat who has moved to Venice with his American family. Inspired by the antics of the cat owned by her neighbors when McIntyre was President of Central Washington University in Ellensburg, Washington, the fictional Harley takes up with a group of local cats who roam wild in the alleys and neighborhoods of Venice, and meets the mysterious Angela, a beautiful white Angora who steals his heart. Then he becomes embroiled in a fierce and ongoing war between his friends and a rival band of cats, and discovers the magical order that underlies life in the enchanting and historic city that is his new home.

The Rising Apple Report reconvenes again for its 53rd episode! Dan Haefeli will be hosting this week, joined by Report veteran Sam Maxwell, as well as returning guest Gary Mack, host of his own podcast, Mets Musings, on which Sam was a guest last month.
The big news of the day, of course, is the Hall of Fame. We Mets fans are dismayed that former Mets catcher Mike Piazza was not elected, appearing on just 62.2% of the ballots. We'll break down this year's inductees, and project ahead to what continues to look like a stacked ballot for the next several years.
Last time Gary joined us, we discussed our hopes for the 2014 Mets roster and outfield in particular. Since then, it has shaped up with the signings of Chris Young and former Yankee Curtis Granderson to surround defensive ace Juan Lagares, and the rotation was bolstered by the signing of Bartolo Colon. We'll break down what we'd like to see the lineup look like, and where we'd like to see any additional moves before spring training starts next month.
So, join us at 6:30PM ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!
And we have reached the (unfortunate) finale!
The Rising Apple Report wraps up its first season with a bonus Closing Day special! Sam Maxwell will host, with Rich Sparago calling in live from the Citi Field parking lot!
The last series of the season has been a microcosm of how poorly the Mets have played at home all year (32-48). We'll discuss some theories on why they played so much better in other people's ballparks (41-40).
Terry Collins will receive, as speculated, a 2-year extension. We'll discuss how we feel about this first bit of offseason news.
And Mike Piazza will be a Mets Hall of Famer in a couple of hours. We'll reminisce on some of our favorite memories regarding the all-time catcher.
So, tune it at 11:30AM ET for the last in-season episode of the Rising Apple Report!
2nd hour co-host Rep. Bill Otto will not be appearing today. We share our condolences on his family's loss.

Mike discusses the future of the Yankees post Mariano Rivera, and remembers Mike Piazza on the eve of his induction to the Mets Hall of Fame. Watchdog contributor Nick Pearl talks about the new NHL playoff setup, and previews the Rangers and Islanders going into the 2013-2014 season.
Join co-hosts Mark McNease and Rick Rose as we welcome ally, friend and guest Vivian Piazza. Vivian is a landscape designer and owner of Earth Angel Garden Design in Nassau County, NY. After spending over 20 years in the music business, Vivian left the corporate world and, following her passion for plants and design, re-invented herself.
At the height of her music business career, Vivian was VP of Media Relations for Epic Records, part of Sony Music. Spanning 24 years and four record labels, she has handled PR campaigns for Gloria Estefan, Celine Dion, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jeff Beck, Luther Vandross, Cyndi Lauper, Bonnie Raitt, Crowded House, and hundreds of other musical artists.
In 2003, as the music business was changing and labels were downsizing, Vivian was laid off. Although music was (and still is) a huge part of her life, instead of staying in a shrinking business, she went back to school (at the age of 44) and studied Horticulture and Landscape Design. She designs rooftop and terrace gardens, as well as residential and commercial landscapes. She literally went from having an office with a view of the park to working in the park!
Opening Day is almost here!
The Rising Apple Report is stoked the season is less than 5 days away, and what better way to conduct the 98th episode than a preview of the first Metsian series against the Nationals of the America's Capitol? With Mike Lecolant hosting, he will welcome the Co-Editor of the Fansided Nats fan site District on Deck, Mr. Ricky Keeler.
The two will preview the series from a pitching and offensive perspective, Ricky's opinion on the Nats' offseason transactions, his prediction for 2015, his opinion about the Mets, plus much much more.
After we say goodbye to Ricky (as he must dash off to his Yanks Go Yard radio show!) Mike will welcome Rising Apple staff writer Ryan Punzalan. They'll discuss the latest Mets news, including the lefty relievers trades and the state of the roster as camp winds down.
And don't forget we'll discuss the '98 Mets!
So, join us at 8pm ET for the latest edition of the Rising Apple Report!

Monday, February 23rd, Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson allowed a new law to block future anti-discrimination laws (to go into effect 90 days after the legislative session ends later this summer). While the premise of the new law known as SB 202 appears reasonable, in actuality this law allows legal discrimination for all non-protected classes.
In this episode, we hear from three Arkansas residents. Meet once again Scott Wyant, Founder of Straight Talk Arkansas, a website dedicated to Living liberally in the Mid-South.
We'll also hear from Cathey Shoshone and Christina Harrison. Cathey is the Co-Chair and Christina is the Founder of Arkansans For Equality.
Christina Harrison was born and raised in Arkansas. She founded Arkansans for Equality in 2011. As an ally, she had become frustrated with the bigotry she came across towards our fellow Arkansans in the LGBTQ community and wanted to do something to help. She began a ballot initiative to repeal Amendment 83 soon after. Christina is a combat veteran in the Army National Guard, and has just recently returned from a tour in Afghanistan.
Cathey Shoshone, also an ally, was born in Arkansas but has lived in several states around the South. She lives in Arkansas currently, She "liked" the Arkansan for Equality facebook page and volunteered to collect signatures for the ballot initiative. The ballot initiative became obsolete when Cheryl Maples and Jack Wagoner won their case in Judge Piazza's courtroom legalizing same-sex marriage. A federal case has also overthrown Amendment 83 to the Arkansas State Constitution. This decision has been stayed pending an appeal hearing.
