Stem Cell Therapy for Ivory

… a story about potential help for cats experiencing kidney failure
by Sandra Crosnoe

Ivory is 15 years old (2017) and recently she was getting pretty lethargic, loosing weight and not grooming herself properly, so I took her to Arrowhead Veterinary Clinic in Dewey on January 25th. They did a blood analysis on her and found she was in early stage renal (kidney) failure. This is the story of how we discovered stem cell therapy and what that process has been like for Ivory.

New Series for New Moms — Dear Mama by Rachael Joy Tapp

If you are just starting a family or well on the way you don’t want to miss this series.  i’ve only known Rachael Joy Tapp for a few years, but it seems like we’ve been friends forever.  She has wisdom beyond her years.  She lives in the Panhandle with her husband, Joshua and their children.

Rachael and Joshua lost their first child during the pregnancy. They have a precious two year old daughter, Hadassah, and just recently gave birth to premature twins, Levi and Gideon.  So she has a bit of life experience but she wraps that in practical tips and guidance from above.   I know you will enjoy each segment so be sure to connect with her and her blog.   I will try to add links to this post as they are released.

Here is her own bio in her own words.

Here is the series announcement.

Article one: Dear Mama, Who Just Gave Birth

Article two: Dear Mama, Who Wonders why Kids are like This

William Norman Grigg died this afternoon. He was a journalist, broadcaster, editor, musician, father, husband, and self-described Christian Individualist. He was also my hero.

Will’s main beat was stories about individual victims of the state: particularly Americans who have been unjustly imprisoned or wrongfully assaulted by government officers. His research for each article was exhaustive. From his home in Idaho, he traveled all around the northwest to get the story in person. He would get to know each subject personally, and seek face-to-face interviews with their powerful persecutors. His tireless work has saved several innocent lives from being slowly drained away in prison. He wrote so many pieces about Christopher Tapp, a man who has spent two decades in prison for a murder he did not commit, that the Libertarian Institute, where he was managing editor, will publish a whole book collecting them.

[Editor’s note: Will Grigg stood in the gap for all of us for many years. He will be greatly missed. My personal condolences to his family./sc]

FORT SUPPLY, Okla. (KOKH) — Residents in Northwest Oklahoma are being asked to evacuate immediately due to large grass fires spreading. A fire warning has been issued for the towns of Fort Supply, Laverne and Buffalo in Harper County. Residents of Fort Supply have been asked to evacuate south toward Woodward, where a shelter is available at the Woodward Pioneer Room, located at 1212 9th Street. (see rest of the story here via OKCFox)

Trump says a lot in a few words  “We must do a lot more with less”  Hiring freezes are already in place and he is working on a cabinet that knows how to manage wisely.  All this bodes well for the overworked American taxpayer.

Congratulations to Mick Mulvaney — here’s the backstory and some insight into how good he is as an appointment .

“Part of the job is saying ‘no,'” Mulvaney told The Post and Courier on Friday, less than 24 hours after being sworn in as the new Director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas, current National Director of OR/OSA states, “Looking back on how the Lord has used this ministry, we rejoice in the thousands of lives that have been spared, the souls that have been saved, like Miss Norma, and the many death camps that have been shut down. We pray the death of Roe (Miss Norma) prophetically signals the death of Roe vs. Wade. May the destroyer of men made in the image of God be destroyed in Jesus’ mighty name!”

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men who have been made in God’s likeness. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. James 3:9-12

Isn’t it interesting how good and evil can come forth from the same mouth? One minute we are praising God and the next we are cursing or tearing down our fellow man. Out of the same mouth that praises God comes insults, cursing, slander, gossip, etc., etc. The Bible tells us that this should not be. It also tells us that the tongue is very difficult to tame and control. I believe, though, that with God’s help, it can be tamed and controlled.
