1. Food truck owners
When they weren't governmenting the hell out of a new sewer plan last week, the ACC commission gave local food trucks the ability to set up shop downtown one day a week. It's not cutting-edge legislation, but we'll take it.
2. Sony Michel
The UGA running back racked up 165 yards in a win (!) over Kentucky on Saturday. He may have saved the head coach's job in the process.
3. Cicada Rhythm
The Athens folk duo appears on this week's Flagpole cover! Read about their debut album, which they celebrate with a show next Monday, in this week's issue.
4. Dodd Ferrelle
Say hello to the next mayor of Winterville.
5. Jianna Justice
The force behind new lo-fi folk project Penny Lame has Flagpole's Gordon Lamb singing her praises. See this week's Threats & Promises for more.
