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.

When Jesus first spoke to the brothers Andrew and Peter, who were fishermen by profession, he told them to follow Him and He would make them fishers of men. Andrew and Peter might not have grasped exactly what those words meant at the time, but in the coming months and years, they would see the Lord’s words come to fruition.

Are you looking for a sweet, petite tabby? Well, meet Mollie. She likes warms baths, being held like a baby and looking out the window. She loves to play with toys and even gets along well with small dogs. Mollie is a 2-year old, 8.02-pound, female domestic shorthair mix, a grey and black tabby. She has very distinct stripes and intense, green eyes that implore you to take her home! Mollie was found by a kind individual who brought her to the shelter to find a loving, forever home.

Q. My family was involved in a car accident. My brother was driving and my 80 year-old grandmother was also in the vehicle, along with my mother. It was the other driver’s fault. We are attempting to settle, but the insurance company only wants to pay for medical bills and damage to our car, even though we went through a lot of stress and other financial loss. What can I do to have them compensate us?

Q. Three years ago, a credit card company filed a lawsuit against me. I answered the lawsuit. I heard nothing for almost two years, until I received a notice of hearing on a motion for summary judgment. Isn’t there a four-year statute of limitations for lawsuits? Shouldn’t this case now be dismissed?
