Hundreds of Athens-area children received a free book this month, thanks to a $3,000 grant from Zombie Donuts & Coffee via the First Book UGA program.
The Athens-Clarke County Library's Summer Reading program invites children from birth to age 11 to attend special events and fill out reading logs to win prizes. Children who read at least 50 books or log at least 25 hours of reading can choose a book as a prize.
"Super readers"—those who read at least 100 books or 50 hours—also received a golden ticket to a Willy Wonka-themed party July 26. Flagpole contributing photographer Richard Hamm was there.
When we last checked in with our local roller derby squad, skaters were taking the track to the familiar chug of “Crazy Train,” and for the next 60 minutes an alarmingly sparse but attentive crowd at the Classic Center witnessed a blizzard of quads. The visiting, and heavily favored, team from Baton Rouge jumped out to an early 4-0 lead, thanks to some deft jamming from Sparkles Fantastic, but they were shut out during their next three scoring attempts, and found themselves down 10 points after five minutes of play—and trailing by 15 at halftime.
The Amazing Acro-Cats wowed cat lovers and skeptics alike during their two-night stand at the Morton Theatre this week. Below, check out photos from the show, courtesy of contributor Richard Hamm:

Best known for playing an exaggerated version of himself on NBC’s “The Office,” Creed Bratton has a storied history as an American icon. In the late 1960s, Bratton was recruited to be the lead singer and guitarist in folk-rock group The Grass Roots. During his brief time with the band, it released its most enduring single, “Let’s Live for Today." Years later, he began a new career as an actor, taking bit parts in a slew of TV shows and movies before landing the “Office” role and becoming one of the show’s most popular figures. Bratton has also released music under his own name since the early 2000s. His current tour is a unique mix of comedy and music that aims to please fans from every generation.
Ahead of his show at The Foundry Monday, May 8, Flagpole picked Bratton’s brain on his unique dual career, the current state of his live show and what he thinks the future may hold. (Warning: Some his answers may or may not be facetious.)
