STAR Ranch Rescue, a refuge for abused and neglected horses and other animals in Haywood County, has received a $750 grant from the Haywood County Community Foundation to help purchase horse feed for the winter.
Thanks to the generosity of dear friends, my family gets to vacation on Isle of Palms every summer. If you follow the “Naturalist’s Corner” regularly, you’ve seen accounts of these expeditions — maybe about “pluff mud,” “gourd heads,” “sister island,” etc. Every year it’s a wonderful trip, and this year was no different. Four-and-a-half days flew by in the blink of an eye. There were tried-and-true adventures, new adventures and one mild curiosity.
