Saving a slice of history for all to savor - Bob Paslay

I was raised in a mid-size Southern town called Spartanburg in South Carolina. We boast of Marshall Tucker, Marshall Chapman and textile magnate Roger Milliken. There are some very smart, friendly people and some fine colleges. But the public officials have always been real yahoos when it comes to any concern for history and preserving history.

The wonderful world of weddings - Chris Zimmerman

Weddings are wonderful aren't they? I think that may depend on what role you have in a particular wedding. Attending the wedding and reception can be very much fun and relaxing, but being involved in the actual planning can be another story.

Pets of the Week

Beauty and Beast are 4 years old. Both are black with white markings, and both have long hair. They have both been sterilized and are current on vaccinations. Beauty and Beast are brother and sister, and have been together since their birth. As small kittens they were adopted by a single man, who kept them until last year when he decided to marry. His new wife refused to allow him to keep the cats. They moved to a new house, and left these two pitiful babies in the basement of the old house, totally alone except when they went in to feed them, for 6 long months. By the time the pair ended up with Clayton Co. Humane, they were frightened and severely traumatized. It has taken much time and patience to convince these cats that they were finally safe and with people who truly love them. Though still a little frightened of strangers, they have become very loving and affectionate with the staff at the shelter. Humane society staff firmly believes that the cats will adjust well in a new home, but it will be necessary to keep them together, as they are very bonded with each other. In order to allow them to stay together at the shelter, they are currently living in a very small, cramped space. Because of their inadequate living quarters, it is imperative that these cats secure a permanent home very soon. VERY SPECIAL adoption fee will be considered for anyone interested in giving these angels a chance at a real home and family. For more information about Beauty and Beast, please call Robin at 770/478-7531. Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.
