The mystery in life is the unforeseen bends and turns in the journey. What we plan for doesn’t always happen, and what we never expected is often the outcome.  Human beings are blessed with the freedom to adjust or change direction when encountering unfavorable situations, but pets are completely dependent on the kindness of humanity to help them to adjust.
Dora is far from an “explorer” in the shelter. Rescued from euthanasia, this shy girl entered the shelter weak and endured a lengthy illness. With the medical attention and time she needed to heal, Dora became eligible for adoption. In a short time, a beautiful little g ...

The Akron sound is getting some love with The Black Keys winning Grammy awards, Chrissie Hynde performing with Faith Hill for a Super Bowl Crossroads telecast, and Joseph Arthur teaming with Dhani Harrison (George’s son) and Ben Harper in the band Fistful of Mercy, which performed on NPR’s World Café. But those Firestone High School graduates will need to make room for Kent’s own Jessica Lea Mayfield, who recently showcased her talent on the Late Show with David Letterman promoting her newly released record Tell Me.
The 21-year-old singer/songwriter first performed with her family band One Way Rider at the age of eight and ma ...

What could be the album of 2011 has already hit store shelves. The King is Dead, by The Decemberists, is topping both the Top 40 and College Radio album charts. The sixth studio release from Colin Meloy (lead vocals), Chris Funk (guitar), Jenny Conlee (accordion), John Moen (drums), and Nate Query (bass) is comprised of 10 impressive tracks that were recorded in a converted barn.  Located near Portland, Oregon on 80 acres of lush meadows, forest, and views of Mt. Hood, the setting provided the album’s earthy attitude.
Meloy took a few leftover songs not released on the previous album, The Hazards of Love, and started working on a set of more str ...

Mixer was brought in after an employee witnessed him getting thrown from a car. He immediately rolled across the road and then got his bearings. Upon approach, it was apparent that he wasn’t just dazed from the assault he’d endured but that something was also very wrong with his sight. After being rushed to the clinic it was determined that Mixer was blind and appeared to have suffered significant head trauma. Because there were multiple injuries ...
