Pets of the Week

Tank is a 7 year old, gray and white Persian mix. He has been neutered, declawed, and all vaccinations are current. Tank was originally adopted out from CCHS in 2000. He was recently returned to CCHS, not because of anything he had done, but simply because there was a new baby in the house. Tank is an exceptionally sweet and gentle boy, and he does fine with other cats and dogs. Weighing in at approximately 18 pounds, Tank is a BIG boy! Though not a young cat, he is really only "middle-age" for a cat, and he has many good years ahead of him.

In college, I felt the pain while reading of President Woodrow Wilson's struggles to form the League of Nations. In fact, my grandfather, a great old Southern lawyer and Shriner, attended the convention that nominated Wilson and somewhere in my mountain of junk, I have the platform and booklet from that convention.

The big move is going down - Rob Felt

As reliably as you throw away your old calendar every Jan. 1 and get a new one, I move into a new apartment. The cycle has been hard to break, and each move has been surrounded by its own set of supporting arguments and issues to work out.
