This week is set aside by the Georgia Municipal Association to recognize the many services, programs and events city governments provide and their contribution to a better quality of life in Georgia.

This week, I reluctantly attended my very first MOPS meeting. Most know that MOPS stands for mothers of preschoolers, and since my daughter won't be a preschooler for another few years, I was a little confused about why I was invited in the first place.

Junior E. Lee, general manager of the Yarbrough Worldwide Media and Pest Control Company in Greater Garfield, Ga., recently called me, all out of breath.

He isn't scheduled to de-flea Arven's place for another two months.
