Sacrifice is something that goes with the territory for any athlete. So Peachtree Ridge forward Brittany Jack wasn't at all surprised when her coach, James Clanahan, asked her last summer to make some sacrifices for this season.
The Collins Hill wrestling team hung with some of the top teams in the nation over the Christmas break. Now the Eagles are ready to defend their Class AAAAA dual state championship.

Former Georgia Gov. Roy Barnes has raised $2.7 million in his comeback bid. The Democrat reported the six-month haul in a campaign filing provided to The Associated Press on Thursday. It's the largest amount reported so far over a six-month period in the race to replace outgoing Gov. Sonny Perdue.

So, you think you're good at movie trivia? Every week, we give readers the opportunity to flex their movie muscles by answering five trivia questions from our movie critic, Michael Clark.
This follow-up to Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody's "Juno" is a mash-up of the snarky high school satire a la "Heathers" and blood-soaked horror B-films and is far deeper than most critics or audiences realized. Poking fun at her own public image, Megan Fox stars as the title character, a cheerleader-turned-groupie who manipulates her sycophant best friend (Amanda Seyfried) both before and after becoming undead. The commentary by director Karyn Kusama and Cody is often funnier and more enlightening than what's taking place on screen.
Considering the conditions director Terry Gilliam faced in finishing his acid trip of a movie after the death of leading man Heath Ledger during principal photography, it's amazing this film makes any sense at all.
It happens about once a decade. Someone somewhere stumbles upon a previously unknown work by a major, long-gone artist and for a brief while, everyone is giddy. In theory, finding an unproduced play by Tennessee Williams is the literary equivalent of a new Mozart symphony or a Picasso painting.
In the space of just two years, the 21-year-old Michael Cera has established himself as the go-to nice guy arthouse movie teen.
