MINNEAPOLIS/MASON CITY, Iowa (KTTC) — The calico cat thrown into the Winnebago River in a duffel bag and nursed back to health by the Humane Society of North Iowa has been adopted.
In an email to KTTC, Donna Avery says her son in the Twin Cities adopted Winnie on Thursday. Avery says she contacted her son after seeing a story last week on KTTC about Winnie. Winnie, who now goes by the name Minnie, was rescued by an anonymous couple last week who saw a man throw a duffel bag into the Winnebago River. The couple called police while retrieving the bag, where they found the cat alive inside. Police later arrested William Hill, 69, for allegedly attempting to drown the cat, and he has been charged with animal torture. Continue reading

When it comes to marbles, there aren’t just cat’s eyes and aggies; there can also be Uncle Roy.
Glassblower Vaughn Evans takes the ashes of loved ones and seals them in creative marbles forever.
Evans, a Hutchinson High School graduate, has always been interested in the arts. He learned jewelry making at a young age and by the time he was 16 he was learning to create glass beads and marbles. Over the years he has practiced and improved and now the 33-year-old is a professional glassblower who works out of a studio in Linwood, near Lawrence.
Several years ago, while at a show at the Lawrence Public Library, a customer asked if he could use ashes from remains and he tried experimenting with the medium. Then he wrote a blog post about cremation marbles.
“Soon after, I started getting random emails from across the world, asking if I could make more,” he said. One of his customers sent ashes from a punk rocker in England.
With the help of his wife, Aly, he has expanded the business through his website http://www.cremationmarbles.com. Continue

As the stray disappeared, Craig yelled out one last sentiment — “You’re welcome!”
