Hot Springs On The GO!

The Sentinel-Record - HER - Hot Springs - - In This Issue - Lindsey Wells As­so­ciate editor

Greet­ings, Hot Springs! You may have no­ticed a new face as you opened up this month's is­sue. Born in Illinois and raised in Hot Springs since in­fancy, most of my 27 years have been spent in the Spa City with my par­ents and younger brother.

I'm a grad­u­ate of Mag­net Cove High School and have been with The Senti

nel-Record team for nearly a year and a half. As the new as­so­ciate editor of this mag­a­zine, I can truly say I've found the place I'm sup­posed to be.

The theme of this month's is­sue is es­pe­cially im­por­tant to me as it fo­cuses on some­thing very near and dear to my heart: pet ap­pre­ci­a­tion. I have two “fur ba­bies” of my own, and any­one who knows me knows that the first thing I would do if I won the lot­tery is build an an­i­mal refuge for res­cued an­i­mals.

This month, you'll meet Nera, the 14-year-old bor­der col­lie/chow mix who has lived at the Hu­mane So­ci­ety of Gar­land County since the age of 3. A quiet and shy dog, she's been looked over, ig­nored and for­got­ten, sit­ting in a cage for the past 11 years of her life. We're telling her story and doc­u­ment­ing the process of her pet makeover in this is­sue, in hopes that she will catch some­one's eye and find her “fur­ever” home.

As win­ter will soon turn into spring and we'll be­gin spend­ing more time out­doors with our four-legged com­pan­ions, we'll cover the do's and don'ts of tak­ing care of our pets and show­ing them the ap­pre­ci­a­tion they de­serve.

Whether you're en­joy­ing the races at Oak­lawn Park, walk­ing down­town and bask­ing in the un­usu­ally warm weather (tem­per­a­tures in the high 60s, low 70s in Fe­bru­ary!), or at­tend­ing one of the many events that our artsy, quirky town has to of­fer, I hope 2016 has in store for you new mem­o­ries, health and hap­pi­ness and I look for­ward to this new ad­ven­ture!
