Cabe Cox earns State Star in Agribusiness

Cade Cox of the Clinton FFA Chapter earned top honors at the 85th Tennessee State FFA Convention when selected as the State Star in Agribusiness on March 26. The State Star in Agribusiness is one of the highest honors given by the Tennessee FFA. Cox’s supervised agricultural experience, or SAE, was rated the best agribusiness program in the state. The Star in Agribusiness award is the second oldest star award in the state and is given to a student whose SAE project involves working in one of many business occupations in agriculture other than production agriculture. The Clinton FFA member’s agricultural education instructors and FFA advisors are David Rogers and Rodney Mann. This award is sponsored on the state level by Farm Bureau Insurance and USDA/Farm Service Agency.

The good work of Little Ponderosa

Oak Ridge Observer

Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue dedicates itself to providing a safe and secure home for abandoned abused and neglected exotic and domestic animals. James Cox, founder and director of the non profit, recently adopted two coyote hybrids from The Oak Ridge Animal Shelter. As their coyote lineage prevented them from being adopted out to the general public, he saved them from certain euthanasia. Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue believes their responsibility toward wildlife extends beyond just safeguarding the animals in their care. As the weather gets cooler, climate control for many of the animals is crucial. The zoo would like for the community to know that donations are always greatly appreciated and much needed, especially at this time of year. If you would like to learn more about Little Ponderosa Zoo and Rescue or to support their efforts, please visit the zoo at 629 Granite Road, Clinton, TN 37716 or at littleponderosazoo.com
