ADOPT A PET: Meet Benson

ADOPT A PET: Meet Benson

ATLANTA - If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half-chewed shoe or an overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local Humane Society. 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.

According to the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia, Benson is a German Shepherd mix and he has a happy sweet temperament.  Benson is about four months old, so, he is very active and loves to play. He isn’t housetrained or declawed. But he’s eager to be trained and have a loving family of his own.

CUMMING: Top court to consider assisted suicide law

CUMMING: Top court to consider assisted suicide law

ATLANTA -- Georgia's top court will consider a free-speech challenge to the state's law against assisted suicide brought by four members of a suicide group charged with helping a cancer-stricken man kill himself.

On Monday, the Georgia Supreme Court will consider whether to overturn a Forsyth County judge's decision that free speech isn't limited by the law, which makes it a felony for anyone who publicly advertises to assist someone in the act of suicide.

The four claimed it violated their free speech rights because instead of criminalizing suicide or assisted suicide, it bans people from publicly speaking about assisted suicide and then participating in the death.

But prosecutors argued the statute was drafted to discourage assisted suicide, even if that wasn't spelled out in the law.

Take-back event yields 3,800 pounds of drugs

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.
