Creatures great and small: Cedarhill still offers sanctuary to big (and little) cats in need of a home

Posted 3/9/2013 in Community

"Well, hello, it's about time you woke up, girl!" Michelle Cranford calls in a sing-song greeting to Cinderella, a female Bengal tiger lazily waking from a morning bask in the sun. Like the other 10 tigers, six lions, three bobcats, two cougars, two wolves, six horses, seven pot belly pigs, four exotic birds and almost 200 domestic cats who call Cedarhill Animal Sanctuary in Caledonia home, Cinderella has come to understand she is safe and cared for, so she is not startled.

It is a heartfelt testament, a celebration of a young man who overcame a traumatic brain injury and the loving support of family and friends that helped him do it.

Re-lent-ing

Posted 3/2/2013 in Columns

We are once again in the season of Lent -- a somber six weeks, which is observed by many Christians, between Ash Wednesday and Holy Thursday. According to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, this time commemorates the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert. There he fasted, had a run-in with the devil, and emerged a changed man. Or, you might say, a carpenter went into the desert and the son of God came out.

 

 

Betty Stone: Road trip

Posted 3/2/2013 in Columns

Back when we went to the "picture show" for our movies, we saw newsreels that ended with "Time Marches On." Today time does not march; it stampedes. I did not realize it had been so long since I had tried to get around the Ole Miss campus until I went there recently. Like Mississippi State University, it has changed dramatically. We recognized a few landmarks, of course, but we could not find half of what we wanted.
