Anna & Timus Applegate, Editor

Hello, I’m Timus Applegate. I am the co-editor of the “All About Animals” blog on and I work from home as I help my owner Anna Applegate compile information for the weekly blog about animal rescue groups, their fundraisers and their adoptable pets. With my unfettered enthusiasm and curiosity, I am the “purrfect” one for the job.

Newsroom staffer Anna Applegate has worked for The Derrick. and The News-Herald for nearly 14 years. She has worked in a variety of posts at the paper. She builds pages, edits copy and dabbles in reporting. She is a Cranberry High School and Clarion University graduate.

She is the editor for The Good Times and can be reached at (814) 677-8364. Feel free to send your event information to She would also like to gently remind readers that the deadline is Monday for the following Friday’s edition of our weekly entertainment section. Anna also has a photo blog titled “A Walk in The Woods” on the VenangoExtra and ClarionExtra websites.

Anyone interested in sharing animal photos or information or nature photos for either the “All About Animals” blog which posts on Fridays or the “Walk in the Woods” blog which posts on Tuesdays may email them to

(Timus Applegate was a stray kitten who just happened to have the good fortune to be born in the Applegates’ “old garage.” He, his brother Ernie and many other critters have taken over the Applegate household.)
