Immunizations important for kids and adults

I am always amazed at how many parents wait until after school has started before they bring their children into the health department or doctors' offices for vaccine updates. This places children at a disadvantage and adds extra confusion to a time when they already are uncertain and bewildered. Kids have a tough enough time finding their classrooms and figuring out who their teachers are. And then there is the class time and information they miss while they're out getting their immunizations.

GOP governor's race too close to call

ATLANTA - Leaders in Georgia's fractured Republican Party preached unity even as the outcome of the bruising primary runoff for governor remained in doubt. Some 2,500 votes separated the two candidates, leaving the race too close to call and a recount likely.

In unofficial returns, Nathan Deal and Karen Handel each claimed 50 percent of the vote with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

Under Georgia law, the runner-up can request a recount if the margin is less than 1 ...
