Find a fawn? Best to leave it alone

in
062616 Fawn C.jpg

This is about the time when I’ll receive a call from a concerned citizen about finding an abandoned baby deer that the mother has obviously deserted or else the mother has met with an untimely fate.
Seeing no other deer around, the caller will report doing something that on the surface seems to be a noble deed. The fawn was picked up — they’re easy to handle when newborn — placed in a protective pen and the caller wants to know what they should do next. What should they feed the little fellow; how can they keep it as a pet; do fawns actually make good pets.

The view from here: Be thankful

Asher, Jemery.jpg

Have you ever been captivated by the beauty of a mountain? There are few things in nature that evoke such visceral reaction in my heart than when I witness the grandeur of a towering, majestic mountain. Even Katharine Lee Bates, the poet who penned “America the Beautiful,” wrote of “purple mountain’s majesty” after visiting Pike’s Peak in Colorado. She further described her experience: “But when I saw the view, I felt great joy. All the wonder of America seemed displayed there, with the sea-like expanse.”

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Louisiana lawmakers completed their special session on taxes Thursday after raising $263 million more for the state's operating budget, lessening — but not completely closing — gaps in health and education programs.
The House and Senate fell far short of the revenue goal set by Gov. John Bel Edwards to raise $600 million more for the $26 billion budget that starts July 1. But on top of taxes boosted earlier this year, they had raised about $1.5 billion to shrink holes in the spending plan.
