Regarding the cats: if you obtain a trap from the Humane Society, it would solve the problem in a short period of time, esp if you have as many cats as you say, though the more humane and better solution would be for you and your neighbors to spay/neuter pets and strays in the area, as we did in our neighborhood. I have bird feeders, two fat lazy pet cats (spayed/neutered) who aren't interested in the bird feeders, and zero problems with strays. Put the feeders in an open area away from shrubs for extra protection for birds. You can spay/neuter ferals (and pets) for cheap at Lifeline in DeKalb (http://lifelineanimal.org/) or from various other nonprofits in the metro -- I think there's one in Newton, ask around. Owners of cats should not let them run around multiplying, I agree.
Oh, here we go again. Dragging that cloak of victimhood over to the Newton paper now, Zo? The facts regarding Oden, Nesbitt and Ferguson are the deciding factor in upcoming elections, not skin color; and I can tell you as someone who voted for Oden that, based on the facts, I (and many many others) will not be voting for him again.
And I got "search local jobs". I see a trend.
King? A true leader? Please don't use this sad state of affairs in Newton to try and defend another sad state of affairs in Rockdale. The two counties may be different in the specifics of their problems, but they are facing the same basic issues -- among them, politicians and public employees who feel a sense of entitlement and 'untouchable' status and who abuse the powers inherent in their positions for their own (or their family members, or friends) personal gain, to the detriment of the county at large.
"How can you know what someone else is thinking, in this case an officer who pulls someone over?" From what I gather, that was the point of the comment in the poll. Reminded me of a Thomas Sowell article: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2007/10/driving_while_black.html
