The Leaf, in downtown Abilene, is recognized as the 4th Best Cigar Retailer in the Nation

Abilene’s own premium cigar and pipe tobacco shop lands among top 5 in the nation according to votes tallied through www.cigarscore.com. Since taking ownership of this Abilene staple, Cory Enderson and Jay Patterson have worked hard to provide a “big city” amenity to the Key City. Cory, Jay, and their amazing staff have climbed the ranks of popular cigar lounges across the country and have been voted number 4 in the country. “The nomination came as a surprise to me,” Jay commented. He went on to say; “I didn’t realize we were competing with other stores nation wide including online retailers. It’s a pretty big deal that our little Abilene shop made a national list. We definitely could not have done it without the staff we have, they are all customer-centric and very knowledgeable.”


Foster Care Simulation Hosted by Big Country Casa!

We at Big Country CASA believe our Abilene Community has the ability to grow in awareness and meet the needs of these children and families. As participants follow the child’s journey through the system, they will become more aware of the plight our children face. Upon the close of the simulation, participants will have a deeper knowledge and understanding of the child welfare system and recognize ways they can be a part of the solution; whether it’s becoming a foster parent, CASA volunteer, employed worker in the system or maybe the simple task of engaging a Sunday School class to collect socks for the children. Regardless of the participant’s ability, we all can be part of the solution.

The question being asked is “Could you survive a month in foster care?” The simulation involves several case scenarios where a child or sibling group is in care and the group consisting of the child, biological parents, foster parents, relatives, CASA Volunteer and 2INgage workers navigate meeting the needs of the child, systematic barriers, conflicting schedules and trauma, to reach a resolution.
