  1. The only thing I can find states the Health Department in Paulding County, but you have to call ahead and be certain category, i.e. first responders, medical staff, etc.
  2. The boys in Burnt Hickory will be cooking up a storm to make Bar-B-Que plates available: November 2nd, starting at 11:00 am. This is to help Mike and Tammy Crowe raise money to pay medical expenses as Mike continues his battle with cancer. Mike is a native of Paulding County as is his wife, Tammy (Davis). Both are wonderful people with big hearts! Mike has been fighting cancer for over two years and is facing surgery at Emory Hospital. Burnt Hickory Boys are asking for donations thru the purchase of this food. Also, Kay will bake a cake in Mike's honor, per your specs. The cost is $20 - $26 dollars and proceeds from her efforts will also be donated. You can call her at 770-294-2226. Just mention this benefit fund raiser so that she can designate the money. Food to be available at the old Burnt Hickory Fire Station on HWY61 North at Burnt Hickory Road behind A&R Shoppette. Thank you and tell all your friends, this food is delicious and these guys have always done a fantastic job!

  6. Thank you for posting this notice, Lady Raider. Lynn was a lovely lady and she touched many lives in many ways. I am sorry to hear of her loss.
  7. In front of Hiram Station/Farmers Furniture strip mall in Hiram at 120 & 278.
  8. We went in a couple of weeks ago, lots of tools, some baby things and artificial trees. Hubby loved it! I got a new iron and a paper shredder. They had lawn mowers. Not clothes, shoes or usual thrift store fare. Edited to add: Endless Yard Sale at Paulding Plaza is closing after Christmas.
  9. Wishing Pubby a happy day!
  10. To the best of my knowledge and as a native if Cobb, I believe Cobb has at least 3 commercial airports - Charlie Brown and Mccullom and a big ole' air force base that is known as Dobbins AFB, althought the National Guard is there now and don't forget Lockheed, heck the cargo planes flew over our house in test flights in the 1970s. Maybe your definition of "commercial airport" is different because these facilities certainly have commercial and military air traffic. Not to mention presidential planes and escorts - even Ronald Reagan landed at Dobbins back in the day and he wasn't in a two seater.
  11. The increase in diagnosis in this subgroup is a “significant contributor to the increasing prevalence trend overall,” says Craig Newschaffer, director of the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute in Philadelphia, who was not involved in the study. Although changes in underlying risk cannot be ruled out, he says, the finding “suggests that parents, educators and clinicians are still becoming better equipped at recognizing [autism] in cognitively able children.” While this is true to a certain extent, I am old enough to have gone through school and work careers and have encountered many many people, some of whom I can look back on and say "they were probably autistic", but not to the degree that it is now. I am certain that one day we will find that it is something we put in prenatal vitamins or a food additive that triggered the "reaction" in the fetus as it was developing while pregnant, but genetics and environment are key, too. Early intervention is practically unheard of - especially in Georgia - as we "middle class" persons can't afford the cost and there are so few facilities and/or trained personnel. Forget the school system - their idea of intervention and training is a bad joke and for the most part they can not provide the necessary, continuous intervention and patience needed. Unfortunately, the articles I have read also say the diagnosis is determined, on average, at age 4 - way too late! I know of what I speak and someday I'll write a book, but today I just wanted to put in my two cents worth.
  12. Georgia Army National Guard Youth Challenge Program. For teens 16 - 18, military mindset but civilian goals of GED and jobs training in some areas. Worth a look. see if this link works. www.ngycp.org/site/state/gafs
