Who are the people who wait until the last minute to complete their taxes for the extension they filed for months earlier?
In our age of a shrinking globe and a growing dependence on technology there are those who fear a small, uniform world and a massive computer crash.
Although I only lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a little more than four years, I consider it home.
Some would say "food group," but it still flavors, enhances and texturizes some of our other favorite foods.
My soul soared like an eagle and then suddenly crashed and began to bleed. I saw the stories of people opening their hearts to help the devastated families after Hurricane Katrina ripped the coast apart. And then I saw the ugly face of darkness, the looting, people taking what they could from liquor to appliances, pushing along carts of stolen items through the flooded streets of New Orleans.
I've been doing a lot of wrestling with our health care system lately and frankly the whole thing is making me sick.

Animal shelter not intended as dump for unwanted pets

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 www.claytoncountyhumane.org to see other animals available for adoption.

I wouldn't consider myself an authority on the game of soccer, (After playing the game as a child, and writing about the sport for years, I still have trouble explaining the offsides rule) but I know one thing, the way the Eagle's Landing girls teams plays the game is pretty amazing.

One man is a new grandfather, willing to do about any silly thing with his young granddaughters. Occasionally, he wakes up from a nap with a little lip gloss and rouge painted on no particular part of his face. Sometimes he pretends to drink tea, kneeling down to a small orderly table of plastic kitchen ware. He even takes his granddaughters for afternoon joyrides on his riding lawn mower.
