Georgia Power says its construction budget remains steady but could change in the future as it builds a nuclear plant near the South Carolina line with Georgia. The Southern Co. subsidiary estimates it will spend $6.7 billion for its share of the cost of building two reactors at Plant Vogtle (VOH'-gohl). 

  AAA Carolinas says about 1.5 million people will take to the road and to the air for travel this long Labor Day weekend in North and South Carolina. The group says that's the highest number of people traveling on the last weekend of the summer season in years.

Authorities say an 84-year-old man rammed his car into an assisted living home in Clinton and has now been charged with attempted murder. Clinton Public Safety Director Robin Morse says he consulted with prosecutors before filing the serious felony charges against Alton Payton, who awaits a bond hearing.
South Carolina's 52-28 loss at the hands of Texas A&M ends an 18-game home winning streak and may end a good bit of the preseason hype the Gamecocks were getting.

Friends Reunion, Sort Of

A lot of fans of Friends have been pining for a reunion show.

This week, Jimmy Kimmel made that wish come true – well, halfway anyway.

A huge fan of the show, Jimmy wrote some fan fiction, casting himself as Ross, and somehow convincing Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox and Lisa Kudrow to perform it with him on an exact replica of the kitchen set.

It’s fun to see the ladies together – too bad the skit wasn’t a bit funnier…

Doctor Doom Leaked!

Sci-fi geeks are burning up Twitter and other social media platforms with pictures of the new Doctor Doom from the upcoming reboot of Fantastic Four.
Couple of questions here:
  1. Does the original Fantastic Four merit a do-over? I think not.
  2. Isn’t Doctor Doom a super villain? So why does he look like a cross between Dorothy’s Tin Man and Sir Alec Guinness’s Obi Wan Kenobi?
Take a look – maybe you’ll see something I’m missing.

Peyton Manning: Vicious Taunter?

The National Football League yesterday announced that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was being fined $8200 for taunting Houston Texans’ safety DJ Swearinger during a pre-season game.

Swearinger had been flagged for tackling Wes Welker, who ended up getting a concussion on the play.

Manning got in Swearinger’s face mask and dropped an F-bomb.

Boom. $8200. Manning says he won’t appeal the ruling.

He even called it “money well spent” according to one source.

Those aren’t pads on Manning’s shoulders. Those are major-league chips!

Near Water Much?

Both the Pacific and Atlantic coasts of the United States are being pounded by heavy surf caused by tropical storms.

To the east, Hurricane Cristobal. To the west, Tropical Storm Marie.

Both are causing much larger waves than normal, to the delight and peril of surfers and body-boarders.

Check out this video showing a large group of people on the California coast, iPhones and cameras held over their heads to capture the ocean’s fury.

And watch what happens when the ocean catches them with their pants down.

Beyonce's Jedi Mind Trick?

Mathew Knowles, father of Beyonce and Solange, the famous feuding siblings, says everything that’s happened with and between his daughters this summer is nothing more than a Jedi mind trick.

During an interview yesterday, PapaBey was asked about the infamous elevator fight, and about the rumors of the possible royal split of Queen Bey and Jay Z.

“Everybody’s talking about it,” he said. And sales for the On The Run Tour went up, plus Solange’s album sales increased by 200%.

All because of the Jedi mind trick.

In case you don’t know your Star Wars lore, PapaBey’s suggesting that his kids have taken over our minds, and fooled us into doing exactly what they want.

“These are not the droids we’re looking for” after all…

The Phoenix Mayor?

Here’s something none of us ever thought we’d hear. According to The Washington Post, Rob Ford, the embattled and admittedly addicted mayor of Toronto, has a decent chance of being reelected.

Let’s recap. Rob Ford has admitted to abusing drugs and alcohol. He’s been at times completely out of control while in office. He’s checked himself into rehab, emerging just a couple of months ago to pick up his campaign where he left off.

Back in June, 63% of the people in Toronto wanted him to resign. That number has dropped to about 50% - still a lot of people! – but according to the poll numbers, Ford is now just three percentage points away from the front runner.

Statistically, that’s dead even.

Amazing how he seems to be rising out of the ashes of his self-destruction.

Chelsea Gets a Wet Send-Off

Among Chelsea Handler’s funniest moments on Chelsea Lately were her famous shower scenes with celebrities like Sandra Bullock and Conan O’Brien.

To get in the spirit, the celebrities would get naked and pixelated with Chelsea, in some flat-out hilarious scenes.

In her farewell to the E! Network, Chelsea was joined in the shower by a fully-clothed and shower-capped Ellen DeGeneres.

And honestly, it’s one of the most hilarious five minutes on TV in a long time – and a great way to retire the bit. Unless of course it happens to come up again in Chelsea’s new Netflix show.

Does it border on brilliant? You know what? I’m going to go ahead and say yes it does!

Check it out – but be warned! It might be a little NSFW.
