The Hunt is On

The Hunt is On

Augusta attorney Bo Hunter isn’t interested in taking the easy road. He never has been. Whether he was facing a legal battle against the cigarette giant R.J. Reynolds or defending Richmond County Probate Judge Harry James III in a case involving the politically charged gun-owner-rights group georgiacarry.org, Hunter stands by the law and each of […]

Remembering the 1996 Summer Olympics

Remembering the 1996 Summer Olympics

With the 2016 Summer Olympics right around the corner and all of the controversy surrounding the games being held in Rio de Janeiro, it’s hard not to reflect back on the Peach State’s own experience hosting the major international multi-sporting event back in 1996.

The Monkees Return

The Monkees Return

The Monkees return to the Bell Auditorium this Sunday, July 24, for the first time since 1969, and their third visit to the Augusta Entertainment Complex, having played to a sellout crowd at the James Brown Arena in 1987.

Food Stuff

Food Stuff

Belair Donuts proves the old adage the early bird gets the worm. Or, in this case, the donut. Not only are they open extraordinarily early — 5 a.m. at their Evans location and 5:30 a.m. at the location near Fort Gordon’s Gate 2 most days — but those who visit near their 1 p.m. closing […]

This Week’s Whine Line

This Week’s Whine Line

If you play PokemonGo, you are a loser. End of story…end of discussion…end of your last two brain cells. Sorry, but it’s the truth. Tried hard to have a simi-intelligent conversation with Lee Anderson last week…like someone else told me, “his bread ain’t done”. Everybody’s all buying into the racist comments and division in the […]

Metro’s Best 2016

Metro’s Best 2016

Last year, the Metro Spirit revived Metro’s Best and readers proved that they sure missed it during the five years we didn’t hold the contest. We had record nominations and voting in the more than 100 categories representing everything from Best Hamburger to Most Inspiring Community Leader. Now it’s time to do it again, readers. […]
