Letter from the president: Green thumbs beautify CY

One of the greatest challenges of home ownership for me has always been maintaining a nice looking yard. I can’t stand digging in the dirt, pulling weeds, or getting eaten by or touching bugs of any kind. Basically, the only thing that I like about gardening is the end result, and I’m one more encounter with a snake away from planting fake flowers in all of my flowerbeds. Luckily, I have the world’s most awesome mother that helps me...

Dear Editor: One of my favorite hobbies is researching family history.

Praise for Memphis Animal Clinic

Recently, a friend of mine picked up an 8-month-old mamma dog and her 2 puppies from the area near Jefferson and Cox in Midtown. As the picture shows, they were in deplorable condition. She took them to Memphis Animal Clinic in CY where Dr. Tower, Dr. Seratt, and their terrific staff cared for them day and night. One of the puppies had parvo but is now doing well. Many vets would have put her down. I thank Memphis Animal Clinic for...
