Pageant focus is on inner beauty - Kathy Jefcoats

I am not a fan of beauty pageants, for most of the same reasons they are not popular with a lot of people - they exploit women and focus too much on appearances only. But I covered a pageant Saturday night where looks were not important at all and there wasn't a bathing suit in sight.

Pets of the Week

Jesse is a 5-year-old, blue merle Australian shepherd. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Jesse was rescued from Animal Control, when Clayton County Humane Society staff found him there, nearly dead. After months of intensive treatment and care, Jesse began to improve. He is now a healthy, active dog. However, Jesse has become depressed and sad after his longtime roommate, Brandy, was adopted. Attempts to give him a new friend have failed. Jesse really needs to be in a loving home, where he can be the center of somebody's world. He is an active dog and attempts to "herd" everyone around him, being true to his breed. Jesse is wary of strangers, so potential adopters should be prepared to visit Jesse at the shelter, and begin to build a bond with him before taking him into a new home. When Jesse plays, he plays hard. Because of this, Jesse should not be in a home with small children. For adoption information call the Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.
