Several teams finding success this season - Doug Gorman

It's hard to believe the fall high school sports seasons are quickly coming to an end.

Moore comedy, less truth - Zach Porter

Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 is a really hilarious film. Watching some of its opening scenes, like the one where Bush asks "anybody want some grits?" I can't help but double over in a fit of laughter. And who could forget song and dance man John Ashcroft gracing our ears with, "Let the Eagle Soar." What a great comedy! But wait a minute, it's not supposed to be a comedy, it's a "documentary."

Doing it my way in New York again - Kathy Jefcoats

Well, folks, I am headed off to New York again but this time I am flying. For the first time. Not the first time flying to New York but the first time flying ever.

I said, "Of course, idiot, I just never went anywhere I couldn't drive to."

Trapped in the airport - Justin Boron

A visit to Ground Zero - Bob Paslay

I had not given much thought to how I would feel when I finally stood at the stark open space that once housed the World Trade Center.

Pets of the Week

Lazlo is a 3-month-old tabby domestic medium-hair. He has been neutered and vaccinations are current. When he was only a few weeks old, Lazlo became a victim of animal cruelty when he was tossed from a moving vehicle. Luckily, his injuries were minor and he recuperated quickly. He's a sweet kitten who craves human attention. For adoption information call the Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436.

Communicating from the basement - Todd Defeo
