State funding for adult literacy classes proved insufficient, classes continue with schools' aid

The state's amended budget for the 2007 fiscal year left the needs of the Technical College System of Georgia unmet, which caused system leaders to consider furloughing adult literacy instructors. An interruption in the June classes would have meant no education programs for the more than 68,000 literacy students who are currently enrolled throughout the state.

Ask Dr. Gott 5/25

DEAR DR. GOTT: I've been meaning to write to you for several months now. I am one of those people who has struggled with her weight for many, many years. I've tried diet after diet with success at losing weight, but always gaining it back plus extra.

Ask Dr. Gott 5/24

DEAR DR. GOTT: I suffer from restless-legs syndrome and have tried the soap-under-the-sheet treatment without experiencing relief. I am now using Excedrin during the day and 20 milligrams OxyContin at night, when the pain in my legs gets so bad I can't get rid of it. I even get up and take hot baths or ride my bicycle to get some relief. This does help a little but not for long.

Dear Abby 5/24

DEAR ABBY: Like "Fine, Thank You in Gastonia, N.C.," I, too, was annoyed when people greeted me with the mindless, "How are you?" "How ya doin'?" etc., which required me to respond to someone who clearly had no interest in a real response. (I understand their feigned interest is more automatic than rude.)
