Sometimes the lowliest of creatures can bring out the best in humans.

The one that caught my attention recently started out life in Iraq, but recently has become a resident of this county.
I read the Associated Press account with not just a few tears.
This was a touching story of Smoke, a donkey, who became a friend and mascot to a group of U.S. Marines living in a province in Iraq nearly three years ago.
Unfortunately, because of bureaucratic red tape, the donkey had to be left behind.
Almost everyone has heard about the Loch Ness monster, but did you know that Arkansas has a lake monster too? More than one, in fact.
Work was started in the late 1940s and by the time Lake Conway was stocked with fish and boaters were beginning to spend time on its waters, rumors of the â€śLake Conway monsterâ€ť began to circulate through the town.
It seems like we just got out of an election season. In fact, some campaign signs may still be found along roadways. Last fall was a particularly divisive stretch with accusations and allegations flying around like flies at a picnic. Itâ€™s a time of year when some residents begin to feel renewed and rejuvenated. The batteries of the political machine are charged and the only thing left to do is to find a driver. Depending on how you look at it, candidate selection is oftentimes done way before filing periods and campaigns even begin.
