Pets of the Week

Hemmi is a one and a half year old domestic shorthair orange tabby. He has been neutered and all vaccinations are current. Hemmi is a polydactyl (has extra toes), and it is believed that polydactyl cats bring good luck to the homes in which they live. He is extremely playful, and very loving and affectionate with people. However, he has an extreme dislike for other cats, so he should likely be an "only cat." Due to his inability to get along with other cats, Hemmi's days at the humane society shelter are spent in a cage, so it is imperative that he find a permanent home soon. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society a (770) 471-9436 Visit www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.

This nation, which should be figuring out how to balance our budget, is having to spend billions on the Iraq war and on helping rebuild the hurricane ravaged coast.

Don't drink and bid - Rob Felt

Silent auctions for charity are a great way to bring people to an event while keeping them entertained and raising money for a good cause at the same time. Throw a wine tasting into the equation and things become even more interesting.
