Odie is a 5-year-old dish found running the roads in Beaumont. His coat looks like a Dreamsicle with its beautiful markings. Odie is a talker and loves to have morning talks while you prepare his breakfast. He enjoys watching the birds out the window during the day. Not big on toys but litter box trained, we think he would be great in any home. He loves to sit in your lap and have his ears scratched. If you want a big handsome boy, go on down to the shelter before someone else snatches him up.

History tells us that the story of Valentine’s Day begins in the third century with an oppressive Roman emperor, Claudius II, and a humble Christian martyr, Valentinus. We of course, do not know for certain if this is the case, but this version has lasted through countless years and has been repeated from generation to generation.

Q. A gravel truck was driving past the entrance to the freeway when I entered. His wheel threw a rock that hit my windshield. I called, and the company said it was not responsible. Who is at fault and how can I get reimbursed for my windshield?

Ginger, 4-month old Corgi mix puppy

You will fall for Ginger in a snap! This cute cookie is a 4-month old, 11-pound Corgi mix pup. Ginger’s owners surrendered her to our shelter because they did not want to housetrain a puppy. This takes a little patience and creativity! She has a beautiful golden-blond, medium-length coat, and cute, fluffy tufts of fur on her ears. She most likely will remain a fairly small dog. Ginger is affectionate and fun to cuddle. She is as playful and fun as any pup could be.

If you follow my column regularly (and I appreciate those who do), you may remember that we met Mary Magdalene, the person I believe received the most important message ever given: “Go and tell My disciples that I am alive.” These words came from the Lord Jesus after He had risen from the dead as He said He would. We then met Peter, also called Son of Jonah, the Apostle Peter, Simon Peter and “the Rock.” (Yes, I know we have a modern day wrestler named the Rock, but he has little strength compared to the man Jesus called the Rock).

Change is not surprising in human experience. We are humorously told that as Adam and Eve left the Garden of Eden, Adam said, “Well, Eve, things are changing!” And it has been that way ever since. In a meeting Jan. 26, 2015, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell announced measurable goals and a timeline to move the Medicare program, and the health care system at large, toward paying providers based on the quality, rather than the quantity of care they give patients.
