'Blair Witch' star to host talk, book signing

'Blair Witch' star to host talk, book signing

ATLANTA -- After starring in the hit 1999 indie film The Blair Witch Project, Heather Donahue became a household name.

However, when the afterglow faded and her acting career began to slow down, Donahue's life went to pot -- literally.

In her memoir Growgirl: How My Life After 'The Blair Witch Project' Went to Pot, Donahue chronicles her decision, at age 34, to start growing pot with her new boyfriend. She provides a rare glimpse into the lives of pot growers and their "pot wives," and describes how it unexpectedly brought her peace and a feeling of normalcy.

Donahue will give a talk and sign copies of Growgirl at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12 at the Highland Inn Ballroom. Her appearance is sponsored by A Cappella Books.

Merry Christmas from Gov. Deal

Merry Christmas from Gov. Deal

ATLANTA -- Governor Nathan Deal issued a special holiday greeting for Georgia residents on Friday.

As Christmas nears, I wanted to wish every Georgian a merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.

Christmas has a special way of reminding us what is really important: our faith in God, family and the well-being of our fellow man.

But Christmas is not limited to a single season or date on a calendar. These feelings of peace and love are always with us throughout our lives. For many, Christmas serves as a rejuvenation of these values and ideals.

After the gifts are all unwrapped and the candles begin to dim, our spirits will once again be enriched and fully restored.

As we reflect on all we have been able to accomplish this past year, we will cary this rejuvenated spirit to achieve all the goals that we have set for the coming years.
