Yosef is a very dignified gentleman. He walks well on a leash and enjoys being outside in the sunshine. He likes treats and playing in the grass on a beautiful day. Yosef is a little head-shy upon first meeting, so make sure to introduce yourself first. Because of this, the shelter thinks Yosef would do better in a home with older children. Yosef is heartworm positive and will need to come back to the shelter for treatment in a few weeks.
Sasha loves to cuddle, give kisses, and receive lots of attention for her favorite people! Sasha loves people and seems to do well with other dogs, though we do suggest a meet-n-greet before adopting. Sasha enjoys being outside but also loves to snuggle up inside after enjoying a day of play. She walks pretty well on a leash with minimal pulling. She is such a happy-go-lucky girl who is ready to find her forever home!Sasha has recently been treated for heartworms and will require limited activity for the next few weeks.
Tiny Tina is what the shelter affectionately calls a “Pocket Pit.” Weighing in around 30 pounds, Tina is the true definition of ‘big things come in small packages’! This little girl is spicy, and we love her for it! She has so much spunk, personality, and attitude to bring to the table. Her fiery spirit is what makes her all the more adorable! Tina seems to get along with most other dogs, but we definitely suggest a meet-n-greet before adopting. Tina does not do well with small children.
As I indicated to you in my last note, we completed the bridge (Moore’s), and were ready to cross at daybreak yesterday morning, but before we essayed it a report came from Major Buck, in command of a battalion seven miles above, that the enemy had been crossing above him on a boat or a bridge, and that his pickets had been cut off.
Colonel Biddle, who was left with his brigade at Campbellton, reports the enemy quite strong at that point, with two guns of long range in each of the two redoubts on the opposite bluff, which are opened upon him whenever any of his men show themselves.
I was very anxious to strike the railroad from personal as well as other considerations, but I became convinced that to attempt it would incur risks inadequate to the results, and unless we could hold the bridge, as well as penetrate into the country, the risk of capture or dispersion, with loss of animals (as I could hear of no ford), was almost certain.
On July 15, 2006, a group messaging service called Twttr launched, later changing its name to Twitter. May God have mercy upon their souls.
After Williams asked the team of 14 employees to brainstorm their best ideas for the flailing startup, one of the company’s engineers, Jack Dorsey, came up with the concept of a service allowing users to share personal status updates via SMS to groups of people. By March 2006, they had a working prototype, and a name—Twttr—inspired in part by bird sounds, and adopted after some other choices (including FriendStalker) were rejected. Dorsey (@Jack) sent the first-ever tweet (“just setting up my twttr”) on March 21.
Within six months after the launch, Twttr had become Twitter. Once the service went public, its founders imposed a 140-character limit for messages, based on the maximum length of text messages at the time; this was later expanded to 280 characters.
Chickory was brought to the shelter as a stray. According to the person who brought him in, he rides great in a car. He enjoys playing ball in the outside pens, seems good with other dogs, has not been tested with cats.
Bingo was surrendered to the shelter for chasing chickens. His owner stated that he is good with children , dog and cats. The shelter found he is a little too interested in the cats. He seems okay with other dogs, but he has a lot of energy and could be intimidating to a small dog or small child. He is very friendly and almost always has a smile on his face.
The first three acts took aim at the rights of immigrants. The period of residency required before immigrants could apply for citizenship was extended from five to 14 years, and the president gained the power to detain and deport those he deemed enemies. President Adams never took advantage of his newfound ability to deny rights to immigrants. However, the fourth act, the Sedition Act, was put into practice and became a black mark on the nation’s reputation. In direct violation of the Constitution’s guarantee of freedom of speech, the Sedition Act permitted the prosecution of individuals who voiced or printed what the government deemed to be malicious remarks about the president or government of the United States. Fourteen Republicans, mainly journalists, were prosecuted, and some imprisoned, under the act.
Crash is a bubbly, excited-about-life boy that loves to bounce like Tigger and play, play, play! Crash came to us as an unclaimed stray in our county which has no animal control. Crash walks well on a leash and would prefer a home where he doesn’t spend a lot of time in a crate- it’s just not his favorite as he has so much learning about the world to do! He would love to go for a hike and smell the entire world. Crash would make a great family dog or companion to an active family.
Reese is a little girl that came to us with her sister Twix after the elderly owner she had recently passed away. In his declining years, he did the best he could to care for his dogs but due to age and health related issues, Reese and her sister did not receive the socialization that they needed to be truly well-rounded dogs.
As such, Reese does not know what it means to actually live in a home environment and is learning things like how to walk on a leash, and how to be approached by people regularly. Reese needs a home with a confident dog who she can take her cues from and learn how to be part of a family with. She also needs a secure fence.
Isis is a good girl that came from an absolutely horrible situation. Her previous owner bred her, didn’t feed her much and then dumped her on a friend that reached out to us for help. Isis is as sweet as pie and LOVES people so much. Some of her favorite things include carrying anything and everything – toys, flowers, a piece of your heart – playing with toys, and sitting on your foot in order to laugh into your face. She is a real heartbreaker, and deserves the good life now!
Because of Isis’ rough past she would prefer to be an only pet in her home, where she can be the center of your heart. She is an absolute love that does well on a leash and listens obediently. Isis would make a lovely family pet and friend.
In the British House of Commons, Percival served on the committee on jails with a young member named James Oglethorpe, who shared his idea about a new colony in North America for the deserving poor. Percival, like Oglethorpe became a Georgia Trustee, and during Georgia’s first decade, with Oglethorpe in America, Percival worked harder than anyone to champion Georgia’s cause and secure its future.
The first U.S. Army soldiers to receive what would become the nation’s highest military honor were six members of a Union raiding party who in 1862 penetrated deep into Confederate territory to destroy bridges and railroad tracks between Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Atlanta, Georgia.
Lt. Frank Reasoner of Kellogg, Idaho died in action on July 12, 1965 and was later posthumously awarded the first Medal of Honor to a United States Marines for action in Vietnam.
“We need everyone engaged, because we know the Democrats are united,” Kemp told a crowd of supporters Saturday at his campaign kickoff at the Georgia National Fairgrounds in Perry, a solidly conservative part of the Peach State.
Kemp, working to shore up his base, closed his speech by arguing that the Democrats have overplayed their hand in Georgia. “Make no mistake. They’re going to continue to cancel conservatives across the country,” he said. “They are trying to go after anyone in the country that doesn’t share their values.”
Kemp also revealed his fundraising figures, announcing he hauled in $3.9 million over the past three months, with roughly $9.2 million in his campaign coffers with a year to go until the Georgia primary.
“We want all Georgians, no matter what zip codes or what neighborhood they’re in to have great opportunities, to be safe, and to be strong,” he said in his speech. “We live in the greatest state in the country.”
Hello! My name is Buddy! And, I want to be your “buddy!” I am a sweet older gentleman who is looking for a new forever home because, sadly, my mom became ill and could no longer care for me. I am a friendly, outgoing, healthy, little guy, still active, loves walks, and I get along with other dogs. I like getting my exercise daily and am always ready for a nice, nap—preferably on your lap or beside you. Take a look at my cute, sweet, happy face, and I know you will want to meet me. I sure hope so anyway. Love, Buddy.
**I qualify for Foster First which means you may foster me for 14 days before adopting me to make sure we all get along. Let’s give it a try.
Hello, I’m Nala. I’m a beautiful, very affectionate girl who can’t get enough pets. When my previous owner had to move and couldn’t take me along, AHS found me a wonderful foster home. My foster Mom said I’m the perfect height to lay my head in your lap when you are on the couch, and I would like to cuddle with you if you say it’s ok to get on the furniture. I just wanted to be wherever she is, so I slept on the floor next to her bed at night and woke her up with nose rubs when it’s time to go out to potty in the morning. She says I get along great with other dogs and would enjoy living with a “buddy” to keep me company when I have to be left alone.
Hi, I’m Towee. I am very excited to meet you, and I just know we are going to be best friends. My hobbies include sleeping (a lot!), exploring the world (there’s so much to see!), and getting into a little trouble (I’m a puppy after all!). I don’t have much life experience yet, but I’m willing to learn if you have the time to teach me. If you have other pets in your home already, I would love to meet them! Do you think I might be the perfect match for you? I sure hope so. Love, Towee
On July 11, 1782, British colonists including British Royal Governor Sir James Wright, fled Georgia.
Wright had been the only colonial governor and Georgia the only colony to successfully implement the Stamp Act in 1765. As revolutionary fervor grew elsewhere in the colonies, Georgia remained the most loyal colony, declining to send delegates to the Continental Congress in 1774.
Burr was a fugitive, but his killing Hamilton in a duel held a certain justifiable reasoning since dueling was not illegal, though morally questionable, to be sure. According to H. S. Parmet and M. B. Hecht in their Aaron Burr: Portrait of an Ambitious Man, after the duel, he immediately completed, by mid-August, plans which he had already initiated, to go to St. Simons, “an island off the coast of Georgia, one mile below the town of Darien.”
Jonathan Daniels’ “Ordeal of Ambition” handles the situation this way: “With Samuel Swartwout and a slave named Peter (‘the most intelligent and best disposed black I have ever known’), Burr secretly embarked for Georgia. There on St. Simons Island at the Hampton Plantation of his friend, rich former Senator Pierce Butler, he found refuge…” As Georgia Historian Bernice McCullar, author of “Georgia” puts it, Burr was “fleeing the ghost of Alexander Hamilton” when he arrived on the Georgia island.
“Major Pierce Butler,” she relates, “had fought in the British army and remained in America after the war.” He had married a South Carolina heiress, Miss Polly Middleton, and acquired two Georgia Coastal plantations, which he ran like a general storming after the troops. In fact, he was so strict that none of his slaves could associate with any of the others. He also required anyone who visited his plantations to give his or her name at the gate. With this tight security, Burr should have felt safe..
Actually, Butler’s invitation to visit the island fitted the escapee’s plans nicely. Not only was the Hamilton affair a bother, but also Burr needed to get away from a lady by the name of Celeste; however, the real reason, aside from being near his daughter, who was also in the South, was the nearness of the Floridas. No real purpose is given why the Vice-President wanted to spend “five or six weeks on this hazardous and arduous undertaking.”
Daniels underscores that from this St. Simons point Burr could “make any forays into Florida he wished to make. He traveled under the name ‘Roswell King.” After his Florida odyssey, he planned to meet his South Carolina son-in-law “at any healthy point.”
Clark lived in the home from 1804 until his death in 1848. He was appointed in 1807 by then-President Thomas Jefferson as customs collector for the Port of St. Marys, a position he held until his death. The year Clark bought the house, he is said to have provided a temporary hideout to Aaron Burr, who was traveling in the South to evade federal authorities holding a warrant for his arrest after he killed Alexander Hamilton in their infamous duel in July 1804.
Verification of Burr’s stay in St. Marys is hard to come by. But it is confirmed that he stayed on St. Simons Island and Cumberland Island late in the summer after he killed Hamilton. That Burr knew Clark is not disputed. The two attended law school together in Litchfield, Conn., but there is no mention in either man’s records that Burr stayed in the home.
General Garrard Moved rapidly on Roswell, and destroyed the factories which had supplied the rebel armies with cloth for years.
Over General Garrard was then ordered to secure the shallow ford at Roswell and hold it until he could be relieved by infantry, and as I contemplated transferring the Army of the Tennessee from the extreme right to the left, I ordered General Thomas to send a division of his infantry that was nearest up to Roswell to hold the ford until General McPherson could send up a corps from the neighborhood of Nickajack.
General Newton’s division was sent and held the ford until the arrival of General Dodge’s corps, which was soon followed by General McPherson’s whole army.
The Scopes “Monkey Trial” began on July 10, 1925, in which a Tennessee public school teacher was tried for teaching evolution, against state law. Three-time Democratic candidate for President William Jennings Bryan volunteered to help the prosecution, and famed lawyer Clarence Darrow defended John Thomas Scopes.
As the first pitch in the relocated MLB All-Star Game approaches, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp is targeting Stacey Abrams and other prominent Democrats in a new ad campaign and reiterating his pledge to fight legal challenges to the state’s controversial election law.
Set to debut Friday and air during the All-Star Game, the 30-second ad features Kemp outside the Atlanta Braves’ home stadium, Truist Park, the site once selected to host this year’s event. The Republican governor asserts Abrams and other members of what he describes in the ad as a “liberal mob” disregarded the economic losses of local small business in favor of partisan political goals.
“We’re going to keep fighting,” Kemp said in an interview with Fox News. “The Elections Integrity Act is a good piece of legislation that makes it easy to vote and hard to cheat. In my opinion, Stacey Abrams, all these activists, a lot of these corporate ‘woke’ cancel culture people, including Major League Baseball, overplayed their hand here and we’re going to push back.”
Kemp said the Biden administration’s lawsuit constituted a federal effort to influence election laws debated and passed by a state legislature.
“They lost the federal takeover that they wanted to do that was an unconstitutional power grab,” Kemp said. “I think this is just the next course of action to show the activists and the folks that are pressuring them. The president got way out there talking about the bill and labeling it was Jim Crow 2.0 and whatever else. Didn’t even read our bill, didn’t even know what the bill did.”
Kemp singles out Abrams for criticism in the ad, declaring that she and other members of “the liberal mob forced the All-Star Game to move, despite the fact that we made it easier to vote and harder to cheat.” He adds that critics of the election bill will “put their political agenda ahead of jobs, small business, even the truth.”
The Georgia governor also pushed back on reports that Abrams urged the MLB to keep the All-Star Game in Atlanta before the decision was made to relocate, asserting the Democratic voting rights activist had “flip-flopped” on the issue.
“When they figured out this was not a good political position for them to be in, they started trying to put the narrative out there that oh, you shouldn’t move the game,” he added. “Well, you can’t have it both ways and we’re calling them out on that.”
