Internet communications more vital than ever - Rob Felt

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.

At our best - and worst - after the storm - Bob Paslay

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.

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

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.
