Writers and literary enthusiasts from across the city will come out to narrate excerpts of the famously dense, Ulysess.

Clowns Down: Jesters Blow Must-Win To Georgia Revolution, 1-5

By Andrew Mullins, III

Facing a must win game to enter the playoffs, the Jesters lost 1-5 to the Georgia Revolution after bad weather, bad play, and bad referees. The loss almost surely eliminates the Jesters from the NPSL Southeast Division playoffs, even with two road games to spare. 

Auctions & Judgement

At today’s (6.25) City Council Budget meeting, the council heard and discussed a pair presentations.
