A city changed? Maybe not - Justin Boron

I agreed with a lot of people in New Orleans who said it wouldn't ever happen – that a massive "hurricane would come right up the mouth of the river," as my friend from New Orleans said. Maybe, the reason I agreed with them was just denial. I had grown to love the city so much that I didn't want to fathom the idea of it being destroyed.

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.

A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another - Aisha I. Jefferson

Katrina won't kill Big Easy - Ed Brock

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.

Spread the love ... don't forget the ketchup - Michael Davis

Some would say "food group," but it still flavors, enhances and texturizes some of our other favorite foods.

Goverment's relief efforts were disaster

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.

Quit if you can, try if you can't - Johnny Jackson

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.
