Meteorologist Carol Erickson of CBS 3 and The CW Philly visited St. Joseph Elementary School, Hammonton, on Tuesday, Jan. 26, to read her children’s book, “Not A Used Dog, At All,” to the second graders. Parents also were invited to attend. Erickson is a passionate animal rights advocate and her book, released this year by AuthorHouse, encourages adoption of shelter dogs. Profits from the book benefit animal shelters and rescue groups locally.
