ADOPT A PET: Meet Macy

NEWNAN, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a cool purr or a comforting meow adopt a kitten from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a “companion” for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

Macy is an adult female, Miniture Pincher and Chihuahua mix and she is availible for adoption. According to the Humane Society, she is seven years old and weighs about twelve pounds; she is a healthy size for her breed and has a temperment consitent with it, also. Like most Chihuahua’s, Macy thinks she must take preceence in you life and is, also, a great watchdog. She is smart and active and like getting her nails painted.

Take-back event yields 3,800 pounds of drugs

ATLANTA -- The third National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day on Oct. 29 was a huge success in Georgia.

Participants turned in about 3,794.35 pounds of unwanted and expired medication for safe disposal at numerous sites across the state.

This amount exceeded the weight of the drugs collected at the second event in April, which was about 3,509 pounds.

"The total number of drugs taken back in Georgia speaks volumes about the problem of unused and unneeded prescriptions, the danger they pose to the community and the communities' commitment to making prescription drug abuse a top priority in the state," John Comer, acting special agent in charge of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration Atlanta Field Division, said in a statement.

Veteran's Day recognition in Hampton

HAMPTON, Ga. -- Three years ago, a small group of Hamptonians decided to commemmorate the town's deceased veterans by displaying crosses with the names of the soldiers and the wars in which they fought.

The display has now reached over 170 markers, complete with flags.

The Hampton Veteran's Day program will be in the historic Hampton Depot at 11 a.m., on Friday, Nov. 11.

Hampton resident Bill Dodd will showcase an excellent array of military memorabilia and uniforms on the depot's lower level. The display can be seen before and after the scheduled program.

Anyone who would like to make a donation to the Hampton veterans tribute can do so at City Hall, 17 East Main Street.
