Music loses another King and other observations
Music loses another King and other observations

Though many body parts seem to be breaking down the old adage, "The mind is the first thing to go," seems to hold true.
Last week I penned a piece of deathless prose about the legendary musical contributions of Ben E. King.
Later in the week, the legendary blues singer BB King died.
You guessed it. I go into "The sky is falling mode." Did I get it wrong? Was The Graphic getting letters to the editor wondering about my sanity? Was it BB King or Ben E. King that died?

Happy birthday to my
Happy birthday to my "almost four-year-old"

Well, in just a week and a half, I will have a four-year-old.
Everyone was right. Time goes by way too fast!

Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook
Nash County Animal Friends' Notebook

Why can't that the Nash County Animal Control Shelter be open on Saturdays? How can we save the pets if we can't make them accessible for adoptions?
However, the Shelter is only open 1-4 pm, Monday through Friday. So if you work during that time and off on the weekend, like so many, that would mean you have to take time off to save a pet! We want to change that!
What is a Shelter? The word shelter means to provide cover or protection. Under that definition, in broad terms, the Nash County Animal Shelter is a shelter.
