How about you pay attention. Course maybe if the baby was shaped like a cell phone (they never seemRead More to forget those).

Already this summer there are far too many incidents of children and pets being left to die in hotRead More cars. Make a statement. Be alert. Let others know that this negligence is unacceptable. Buy a shirt, form a team, grab your friends and volunteer some time to do a car check the next time you are in a hot parking lot. Bring a hammer or crowbar just in case. This is a two tier project. First, preorder your t-shirt, tank top or hoody at http://teespring.com/windowbreaker T-shirt sales goal = 50 shirts in 20 days. For those who not familiar with teespring. com, pre-order your shirt on reserve. When the goal of 50 shirts is met or exceeded, shirts will be shipped to you by the company. If the goal is not met, the order is cancelled and no money is charged to you or your credit card. Proceeds from shirt sales will be reinvested to purchase bumper stickers that will be available locally and online. Bumper stickers will spread the message to a greater audience and remind the ignorant that we are paying attention - even if they are not! It is our moral obligation to protect those who cannot protect themselves. There comes a time when we are called to act. The time to act is now before another victim headlines the news. Will you choose to be part of the answer? I did. I ordered my shirt last night. Join this worthwhile cause TODAY! Please share

Great idea and kudos to this kid who invented this but this poor kid is in for a rude awakening whenRead More some moron tries to sue him because he put it in his car and it broke or fell off and the person didn't get reminded that his baby was in the car and it died. Sorry but this is the society we have raised!

Thanks Smyrna-Vinings Patch readers for voting to send me to Atlanta Pet Rescue. I had a great timeRead More volunteering and hard as it was, I didn't adopt all the dogs. I'd call it a success. :)

Mr. Wood's list of accomplishments always amazes me. He has served not only the City of Smyrna, butRead More Cobb County and beyond for many years. My thanks goes out to both he and Mrs. Wood for the service that they have both provided. They are both quality citizens and friends.

Having worked with literally hundreds, if not thousands, of local elected officials, I can, withoutRead More qualification, state that Pete Wood is one of the very finest elected officials to serve a local community. He was always hard working, well informed, thoughtful, fair, honest,visionary and a team player who was willing to compromise on issues but never on principle. He is the model of a public servant. When all of his public service is complete we can all say...a job well done.

There is no finer individual than Pete Wood. He and Lillie are true inspirational figures toRead More hundreds of us and we are so fortunate to have them both committed to making Smyrna a great city for over 50 years. We wish them many more years to enjoy their hometown, which they have made far better by their untiring works. Those of us blessed to have them as friends, know that angels do walk among us. Congratulations for the well-deserved recognition! Ron Fennel, Ward 7 Smyrna City Council

Congrats Councilwoman Anulewicz - well deserved. And congrats to Sydney Busby, who was stripped ofRead More her interim title this week and is now the full-time Smyrna-Vinings Patch editor. Well deserved, as well.
