Competition would help raise standards

In response to John Mazarous' letter ("School taxes not equitable for those with no children," To the Editor, Nov. 29), he does not look at the big picture.

Pets of the Week

Gilmore is a black domestic shorthair. He is approximately 18 months old, and has been neutered and vaccinated. Gilmore was abandoned; left behind to fend for himself when his former family packed up and moved without him. At first, very frightened and shy, Gilmore has become very secure and comfortable, and meets no strangers. He is extremely friendly and will go to great lengths to get a little attention. He does well with other cats. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane at (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.

You can shop early and its never too late - Jeffery Whitfield

It begins. Starting at the crack of dawn, beginning at 5 a.m., the morning when the motor is turned off.
