1. Brett Atchley
The CEO of AthCon—scheduled for this weekend at the Classic Center—is expanding the sci-fi/comics convention. Read more in this week’s Flagpole cover story.
2. Tim Denson
The former mayoral candidate has been a busy little bee, going straight from bonding out of jail for protesting in Atlanta to the Athens-Clarke County Commission meeting last Tuesday, where he agitated for Sunday bus service.
3. Tim and Carrie Kelly
They’re starting a board game cafe downtown, and from the looks of the Facebook feedback, it’s going to be a hit.
4. Bain Mattox
The unofficial Mayor of Normaltown stays on the list for a second straight week. Look for a review of Automatic Pizza on Wednesday.
5. Knowa and Mokah Johnson
Check out a photo gallery of the third annual Athens Hip Awards, organized by the Johnsons.
