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.

I've tried diet after diet with success at losing weight, but always gaining it back plus extra. I've seen your column in my local paper and would always roll my eyes when reading about "no sugar, no flour." I would say, "Yeah, right," and go on my merry way on a rollercoaster of ups and downs. In April 2004, I decided to give your way a try ...

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.

Slow down and enjoy the moment

Twenty-five years ago when Julie and I drove into Statesboro with the kids, we knew we had been blessed by God Who had brought us home. Strangers waved at us as we drove in, the streets were clean and there was little traffic up and down old two-lane Fair Road. I think there were only a few places to eat - mostly family style - and Georgia Southern College had perhaps 9,000 students.
