Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? And dinner… and breakfast…
Free waffles and hash browns are being handed out at the downtown Waffle House today courtesy of Georgia beating Auburn this past Saturday, thanks to the “waffle wager.”
Athens is 65 percent Democratic, so it's no surprise that Athens residents are contributing far more to Jason Carter and Michelle Nunn than Gov. Nathan Deal and David Perdue.
Using data from FollowTheMoney.org, Flagpole looked at where Carter, Nunn, Deal and Perdue are getting their money from.
In Athens, the answer is the Westside. Carter, Nunn and Deal all raised far more from the 30606 zip code than any other. (The 30603 zip code consists of P.O. boxes at the downtown post office.) Perdue is not included in this analysis because he has raised just $500 locally.

Another University of Georgia student was hit by a vehicle on campus today while trying to cross Baldwin Street. This marks the second student struck within three day of classes in the same location. Once again, the student was lucky and walked away with just minor scrapes and bruises.
Rob Richards, Jr. may be invincible. Or just really lucky.
Yesterday, a car struck Richards on the first day of classes at the University of Georgia. Today, he was miraculously walking the streets of downtown Athens on his way to a martial arts class after putting in some hours working at UGA’s main library.

At the top of the agenda for the Athens-Clarke County Planning Commission Thursday night was a plan for more student housing.
Campus Acquisitions, a company based in Chicago, wants to turn 165 E. Dougherty St. into a five-story mixed use development with retail spaces at ground level and student apartments above. Until recently, an office building on the property housed Advantage Behavioral Health Systems, and it's now occupied by the tech incubator Four Athens.
The biggest concern voiced by the public and the planning commission was the waiver for residential density. The plan would add 81 residential dwelling units, or 237 bedrooms, which is 27 bedrooms too many, according to the current zoning codes.
Athens Clarke County's new District 3 commissioner is Melissa Link, who won the runoff tonight with 54 percent of the vote, 436 votes to 372, in a low-turnout second round of voting.
Album 88 Alumni, the nonprofit group formed to save the beloved college radio station WRAS, released a proposal today that was submitted to Georgia State Unversity President Mark Becker last week as an alternative to the recent partnernship with Georgia Public Broadcasting.
I spent last night, the night before my last two final exams, in the typical fashion of a college student, cramming every last bit of information from a semester’s worth of notes into my brain. And of course that came with an ample amount of “break time,” also known as mindlessly scrolling through Facebook, Twitter and random websites on the Internet.
And that brings us to the job section of Craigslist, where I found this little gem.
A University of Georgia student was found dead in his East Campus Village dorm room Tuesday night after his suitemates called housing officials to say they thought something was wrong.
After every UGA home football game, Flagpole news intern David Schick will be checking the police blotter to find the weekend's strangest drunken antics. Here's the fifth installment:
About three dozen people came out to a public meeting last night to voice their concern over Georgia Power’s plan to raise power rates.
Georgia Power has proposed a $478 million increase and a new fee on property owners who install solar panels on their homes and businesses.
If the proposal is passed, the new hike and fee would go into effect on Jan. 1, and many see it as Georgia Power’s way of adding a tax or tariff on people who attempt to use sustainable energy.
