  • Porcupines in the storm

    Years ago, a pastor friend of mine did a series of seminary talks titled “Porcupines in the Storm.”

    Porcupines actually have soft hair, but on their backs, sides and tails the soft hair is mixed with sharp quills; Africa’s crested porcupines have quills nearly a foot long.
    As porcupines go about their day, their quills lie flat — until the animal feels threatened. Then the quills leap to attention.

  • Kattleman's Kreek re-opens

    Almost two months after an early morning electrical fire forced its closure, Kattlemen’s Kreek restaurant officially re-opened Sunday, Nov. 3.
    The process took several weeks longer than anticipated, owner Mary McKinley said, but she used that additional time to install a new HVAC system and a new roof.
    “These were projects that I wanted to do while the restaurant was operating. But since we were doing these other repairs, it was the perfect time to knock those out,” McKinley said.
