With the leaves changing colors and the cool, crisp air moving in, it is difficult not to feel just the slightest bit of excitement for the festivities ahead. While the holiday season often serves as a source of stress for families across the nation, that's not the case for the HER staff. We simply love it! It is not just the promise of warm sweaters and memories made around the campfire, but the chance to share our favorite fall activities with our readers.
The cover of this month's issue features a playful pooch named Zach who currently lives in the kennels at Hot Springs Animal Services. Zach is just one of many animals living in a local shelter, waiting to find his "fur-ever" home. This month we sat down with both a local veterinarian and the coordinator of HSAS to bring our readers the most relevant and useful information in regards to adding a four-legged friend to the family this holiday season. We also feature pet profiles from animals currently under the care of HSAS, in hopes that these animals can find a loving family who will care for them for years to come.
This issue also features two new sections of HER Magazine, the addition of a columnist and a new twist on the HER Eats section. Local veterinarian Jessica Rhodes has partnered with the magazine to bring about even more awareness to caring for our furry friends. In her column, Rhodes plans to take an in-depth look at some of the cases she sees throughout the year and educate pet owners on how to keep their pets healthy and happy. Her articles will cover everything to the importance of keeping your pet up-to-date on flea and tick medication to the more intricate details of preventing and combating Parvovirus.
Our new twist on the HER Eats sections is easily a fan-favorite among the HER staff. Around the Table is all about bringing our friends and families to the table to share wonderful food and good times. To kick off the new section, we're featuring easy to make holiday hits. Members of the HER staff went back to their own family cookbooks to bring together three tasty recipes our reader can recreate in no time at all. So pull out your Instant Pot and rinse out your crockpots; it's time to get cooking!
With the Thanksgiving holiday quickly approaching, the HER staff decided to do some research on Garland County's own history with Native Americans. Mary Beth Trubitt, an archaeologist and professor at Henderson State University, opened up the display case and used the artifacts to tell the story of the indigenous people who once called the valley with healing vapors home.
As you gather around your own dinner table, surrounded by family near and far, take some time to reflect on what you have to be thankful for. The list might be longer than you thought. From everyone here at HER Magazine, happy Thanksgiving!
