UGA to change student seating procedures after Clemson miscues

@dawgette: I bring my 7 and 4 year old to games, they love it. At different times they watch the game, cheer, keep track of Hairy Dawg, eat popcorn, drink sprite and play games on the phone. What's wrong with that?

Athens cop's weather observation leads to arrests of motorcycle thieves

He's not Winston Wolf. Always check the car!

The Wolf
"About the car, is there anything I need to know? Does it stall, does it make a lot of noise, does it smoke, is there gas in it, anything?

Jules
"Aside from how it looks, the car’s
cool."

The Wolf
"Positive? Don’t get me out on the
road and I find out the brake
lights don’t work."

Second degree homicide by vehicle encompasses all other homicides by vehicle, involving any other violation of the laws governing motor vehicles, that are not classed as first degree homicides.[8]

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.
