Mail disruption

I have been told that although the mail carriers in Athens showed up for work today, there was virtually no mail to deliver because trucks were not able to make deliveries from the distribution center to our post offices. So don't expect to get that check I sent you just yet.

The Clarke County Health Department is looking for women ages 20 to 35

$20 gift card for participating in the focus group (must be present the
full time), and pizza and refreshments will also be provided.

control advertisements, so participants should be comfortable speaking
about this topic in a small, confidential environment.

participation because space is limited. For more information about the
