What do you do when a fight breaks out in the middle of a play? Do you rush up onto the stage to help break up the fight, join in with the cast as they cheer or simply sit back and enjoy the show?

“I’ve seen a version of Godspell before, but this one was way better,” Catherine Rice, a Liberty County High School student, said. “It was fun and I liked the music.” Continue reading

A loving lefty defeated a talented righty at this year’s Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. Close your eyes and you would initially envision Phil Mickelson beating Tiger Woods, but in reality neither were seen on Sunday in Augusta.
Woods could not play in the Masters due to an unhealthy back, and Phil found himself in golf hell after multiple double and triple bogeys, causing him to miss the cut.
