Another hot week predicted for Georgia

ATLANTA (AP) - More temperatures well into the 90s are forecast for Georgia this week.

Except for slightly cooler weather in the mountains, the National Weather Service says Georgians can expect highs in the 90s at least through Thursday. The weather service is calling for highs in the mid to upper 90s on Tuesday.

Forecasters say there's a chance of showers and thunderstorms around the state every day this week.

The good news for metro Atlanta is the state's Environmental Protection Division expects air quality to be moderate on Monday.

ADOPT A PET: Meet Central

ADOPT A PET: Meet Central

MARIETTA, Ga. – If you dream of coming home to a wet nose, wagging tail and tons of kisses (in addition to, perhaps, a half chewed shoe or overturned trashcan) adopt a puppy from your local pet shelter. According to the ASPCA, approximately 5 million to 7 million domesticated animals enter animal shelters nationwide, every year, and approximately 3 million to 4 million are euthanized. However, you can change those numbers but adopting a “companion” for yourself or your family. Pets are an investment but, in our opinion, an investment well worth the money.

According to the Humane Society, Central was found in a park and brought to us. She would love to have a quiet, peaceful home.

Metro mother given multiple blessings

ATLANTA -- The next time you think you've got your hands full, think of Maritza Salinas.

The metro Atlanta mother gave birth to triplets at Emory University Hospital Midtown last week. 15 years earlier she had twins, and two years before that, another baby.

The newest additions to her family are Salvador, Julio, and Miguel. Right now, they are also known as A, B, and C.

Salinas' pregnancy was a surprise, and finding out they were natural triplets was another surprise.

When asked if she was scared, Salinas said, "Not really."

"I thought she was done. I would never think she was going to have brothers, especially," said daughter Maritza.

Another daughter, Yazmin, shared her surprise saying, "I always wanted brothers but I wasn't expecting that there would be three!"

Cagle raises $18K in off-election year

Cagle raises $18K in off-election year

ATLANTA -- Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle has more than $208,000 in the bank for a possible re-election bid in 2014.

A report Cagle filed with state officials Friday showed the Gainesville Republican has raised a little more than $18,000 in the first six months of 2011, a non-election year when fundraising is typically sluggish.

He already had $344,262 left over from last year's successful bid for a second term as the state's No. 2.

Finance reports detailing campaign contributions and expenditures were due with the state ethics commission by Friday night.

Cagle trailed at least one other top Republican in the Senate, where he presides. House Rules Committee Chairman Don Balfour of Snellville raked in $137,000 for the first six months of the year. He has more than $174,000 in the bank.
