Headed down to Flowery Branch - 08/03/14

Tomorrow, Fox 17 will be heading down to Georgia to see the Titans scrimmage against the Falcons. Specifically, I'll be heading down along with news photographer Scott Simpson. It should be interesting. After a week of hitting each other at training camp, the Titans get a chance to run their plays and take out frustrations on a different team. Their first preseason game is still 6 days away, so any opportunity to mix things up and do it against another team will be well received.

In a scrimmage, we won't really be able to see the results of plays, but we will get a chance to see how physical this year's team will be. Hopefully, the Titans can set the tone for a season where they won't be pushed around. I'll have reports tomorrow at 5:30 and 9pm on the scrimmage on Fox 17 News!

PORN SAFETY STANDARDS

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Some porn stars don't like California's proposed regs. The safety standards wouldn't be restricted to below the belt. Sex performers would even be required to wear protective eye gear in some situations. Producers of X-rated videos would also have to pay for medical tests and hepatitis B vaccine. The porn stars say if the new rules go in effect their adult videos will look like medical shows.

STRANDED BEER DRINKERS

JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) -- At least they didn't go thirsty. Hundreds of people at an Alaska beer fest were stranded because of a broken down ferry. The Alaska Marine Highway System suffered a mechanical problem Sunday, during the annual Great Alaska Craft Beer and Home Brew Festival in Haines. The Juneau Empire reports many of those left high and dry scrambled to make alternative travel plans, including flights home.

MAINE PARK PASSES

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- It's just what the doctor ordered. Maine's primary care physicians are giving out more than 13,000 free Maine State Park Passes. The park freebies are to go to pediatric patients and families starting today. There's no rush to use those park passes. They're good through December.

CLEAN BEACHES

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- "Keep it Beachy Clean." That's the message to folks visiting Virginia Beach. The campaign is reminding beach-goers in the Virginia resort city to pick up their trash, don't leave cigarette butts and clean up after Fido. The Virginian-Pilot reports cigarette receptacles are being installed on the Boardwalk and at hotel entrances. Hotels will also get pocket ashtrays to hand out to guests.
