1.)     This weekend, you could win a role in the upcoming sequel to “Magic Mike.”    An open call for any 21 and older, for all ethnicities and body types will be held in Savannah on Sunday.    Bring 2 recent photos of yourself with your name, email address, phone number, plus your height and weight clear marked on the back.   The open call is Sunday morning at Forsyth Park for people to play club and restaurant patrons and beachgoers.   

2.)     What member of your family is the most depressed because school is back in session?    It might not be your son or daughter, but rather your dog.     According to a study out of Tufts University’s Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine, dogs don’t deal well with severe abandonment issues, and may try to lash out.    As many as 80 million dogs suffer from separation anxiety.  In more extreme cases, the dogs can start damaging property, or even stop eating until their owners return.    The experts say it is important you not indulge this bad behavior, as it might never go away. You don’t do it for your kids, why should you do it for your dog.

3.)     The University of Maryland enters the Big Ten Conference this season, and while they’re not anticipating a lot of success on the field, they are working on things for their fans in the stands.    In the concession stands at Terrapins games this fall will be the “Cheesie,” a 1.5 pound soft pretzel that serves four. It’s baked with back fin crab dip and melted cheese.     According to the school’s press report:
“The ‘Chessie,’ named after the Loch Ness Monster’s less famous Chesapeake Bay cousin, is a monster-sized 24-ounce hot soft pretzel smothered in back fin crab dip and melted cheddar cheese, then topped with a dusting of Old Bay for two to four hungry fans.”
