Racing car finds home

The Georgia Racing Hall of Fame has recently acquired a famed racecar that was thought to be lost until a few years ago.

Known as the Dixie Twister, the Huston Platt-owned car had disappeared after a deadly accident on March 2, 1969, that killed 12 and injured more than 40 at the Yellow River Drag Strip in Covington.

Outback Bowl proves some phrases never go out of style

The folks at Lake Superior State University in Michigan have just released their recommendation for words and phrases that should be erased from our vocabulary in its annual List of Words Banished from the Queen's English for Misuse, Overuse and General Uselessness.

Why Lake Superior State? And why the list? Well, for one thing, they don't have a football team which gives them a lot of time to think about stuff like this. I wish Lake Superior State did have a football team and maybe Georgia could have played them in the Outback Bowl instead of that other ...

Mama said there’d be days like this …

I have never been a big couponer. I tried it when I was younger during grocery trips with Granny.
