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. Though the car engine never got hot after it left your driveway for the short drive, steam still radiates from under the hood, between the joints of the car's metal frame after it's parked at the shopping mall.

The cardigan sweater is a fashion mystery for me - Justin Boron

While I can't speak for how everybody else feels about this article of clothing, I can say in my impression few have mastered it. I certainly haven't. Off the top of my head, Mr. Rogers and Kurt Cobain are two people to have adorned themselves with the awkward garment in an unusual grace and unique style. (Seriously, I thought of these two off the top of my head, and after some research into the sweater, to my surprise, I found that confirms it, listing both the late songwriter and children's storyteller as two of the most "notable wearers of cardigans.")

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.
