My friend Jane Yelliott has been honored

My friend Jane Yelliot, "local artist and longtime supporter of the arts" (as described her), was honored with the installation of a plaque on the Walk of Honor at the historic Walnut Street Bridge last week.  (See photos of the installation.)  She joins other notable Chattanoogans such as Bessie Smith, world famous blues singer, and Adolph S. Ochs, publisher of the Chattanooga Times and the New York Times.

I've written about Jane on this blog many times, like when she gave me a tiger "cat" to hug after Kiki died.  She's a special person, and I'm happy to see her honored like this.
