Letters to the Editor

Thanks to many for help

On Tuesday in the 5 p.m. traffic on Buford Dam Road during a severe thunderstorm, it was absolutely amazing the number of men and women who tried to help save our neighbor's two dogs that freaked out from the thunder, left the comfort of their home and escaped through their fenced yard into the traffic.

To the kind lady who opened her car door and captured one of the rain-soaked dogs and drove my wife home. To the man who stood out in the pouring rain and others who opened their car doors in an effort to help corral and capture the other dog, only to watch the dog dart out and get hit by a driver who did not stop. To the lady who offered a rug so we could sling the dog for lifting into the car and another man who offered to help move his injured body. All the people who patiently waited in their cars while we scooped the dog from the pavement. The neighbor who kindly called her veterinary clinic telling them a nonpatient accident victim was coming in. All the veterinarians and techs at the Animal Hospital of North Gwinnett and Animal Emergency Center Gwinnett who tried to save this little dog' s life.

In spite of all the efforts, the dog died during surgery. Our heartfelt thanks go out to all of these caring people.

Pets of the Week

Josie is a one-year-old, tortie domestic medium-hair. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Josie was originally abandoned at the humane society shelter, left in a box at the front door. She was adopted very quickly and went into a home with another cat already living there. After just a few months, Josie's new mom returned Josie because the other cat was refusing to accept Josie. Josie is a very friendly cat, and has done well with other cats living at the humane society. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.

Yawl come visit now, you hear ... (please stay away) - Bob Paslay

The late, great humorist Lewis Grizzard said the difference between the two words naked and nekkid is that if you are naked you aren't wearing any clothes and if you're nekkid you aren't wearing any clothes and are up to no good.
