1. Gail Schrader
Above is the line for Sunday voting. Thanks to Schrader, Athens-Clarke County’s election supervisor, and the Board of Elections for making it happen.
2. Jason Carter
Agree with his politics or not, he’s a whole lot cooler than the other guy.
3. Timi Conley
The Wild Rumpus mastermind is the king of the city come Oct. 31. Check this week’s Flagpole for the lowdown on Halloween shows.
4. Grant Henry
Sister Louisa’s Church opened its Athens branch Friday to great fanfare. Check back later for a gallery and an interview with Henry. Getcher asses to church!
5. Stephanie Talmadge
She made it! Flagpole‘s news intern ran the AthHalf and lived to tell about it (in an upcoming issue; keep your eye out).
