Focus on Clarkston

Clarkston will be getting some time in the spotlight with an upcoming episode of the PBS series "America By the Numbers." The city near Stone Mountain has been noted for its dramatic increase in refugees, going from 90% white in 1980 to 14% in 2000. Talk about melting pot: 85% of the city's businesses are owned by immigrants from 40 different countries. [AJC]
