    Attracted by tax incentives that went into effect Jan. 1, Universal Pictures has committed to shooting portions of its upcoming Johnny Depp film "Public Enemies" in Wisconsin, Gov. Jim Doyle said Tuesday. The movie is likely to include scenes filmed at locations in Milwaukee, Baraboo, Oshkosh, Madison and Columbus, Wis., said Scott Robbe, executive director for Film Wisconsin and a leader behind the development of the tax incentive program. "Milwaukee will play prominently in the film," Robbe said, adding that Depp will come to the city for the shoot. The movie company reached agreement Tuesday with the Wisconsin Department of...

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Delegates to the state Republican convention unleashed a rare chorus of boos and hisses at U.S. Sen.

Chambliss had just finished emphasizing his devotion to border security provisions contained in the measure, and brought up agricultures need for temporary, foreign workers.

    Poor Johnny: One day a fourth-grade teacher asked the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came up -- fireman, mechanic, businessman, salesman, doctor, lawyer, and so forth. But Johnny was being uncharacteristically quiet, so when the teacher prodded him about his father, he replied, "My father's an exotic dancer in a gay cabaret and takes off all his clothes in front of other men and they put money in his underwear. Sometimes, if the offer is really good, he will go home with some guy and make love with him for money." The teacher,...

Kim Willsher in Paris and Justin Stares in Brussels (Filed: 15/01/2006) Disbelieving French fans have accused the country's ageing national pop icon, , of betrayal following the revelation that he has applied to become a Belgian. News that the 62-year-old singer known as the "French Elvis" is seeking to become a citizen of France's small neighbour has been greeted with widespread astonishment. Bad enough that Hallyday should consider turning his back on the country which has taken him to its heart - much worse that he should turn instead to the nation...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. Sick and consumed by grief after his wife's death, Johnny Cash struggled to record his last songs and spoke regularly with the Rev. Billy Graham for comfort, according to a new family authorized biography. "He would look at me, a couple of times with tears in his eyes, and he would say, 'I can hardly wait to see heaven, to see the Lord and to see our family,"' Cash's sister Joanne Yates tells author Steve Turner in his book, "The Man Called Cash: The Life, Love and Faith of an American Legend," set for release Sept. 13....

    Georgia Right to Life Action Alert 7-17-04 At 6:53 p.m. Wednesday, May 19, 2004, Congressman Johnny Isakson cast a fateful vote for H.R. 4200, Vote #197. No other Georgia Republican Congressman joined him in the vote to allow abortions in military hospitals. Yet, four Georgia Democrats (Sanford Bishop, John Lewis, David Scott and Denise Majette) voted with Johnny Isakson. The vote failed just as it did the two previous years that Congressman Isakson voted to allow abortions in military hospitals. The day after the vote, Sadie Fields, executive director of the Georgia Christian Coalition, said, "We're extremely disappointed in the...

    Shaking the 'M-word' Can Johnny Isakson out-conservative the conservatives? BY SCOTT HENRY In the summer of 1990, just after losing the Democratic gubernatorial nomination to Zell Miller, then-state Sen. Roy Barnes was making the obligatory bury-the-hatchet speech to endorse his former primary opponent. Joining Miller in the Marietta Square, Barnes attacked GOP nominee for governor Johnny Isakson on his home turf with the most damning charge he could muster -- accusing the east Cobb Republican of being "more liberal than Zell." Just another example of how, if you wait long enough, nearly every statement made in the heat of a...

Rep. Mac Collins and businessman Herman Cain have accepted invitations for a Sunday night debate at the RiverCenter for the Performing Arts. Rep. Johnny Isakson has declined. This won't be the first debate held without the presence of the GOP frontrunner. To date, he has passed on five different debates, most...

    Friday 3.26.04 Like an unexpected third topping, Cain is changing the face of the GOP race for U.S. SenateWhile the Legislature has dithered, the shape of the U.S. Senate race in Georgia has undergone a subtle change. Not the Democratic side. That remains an embarrassing disaster. We're talking about the Republican contest. The campaign of Johnny Isakson on Thursday passed around some points from his well-known Washington pollster, Linda DiVall. Any candidate poll that reaches the public eye is by definition self-serving. And Isakson's is no different. His name ID is high, his favorability ratings are unassailable. Ho-hum. The real...

    The three-day shoot for the video was about to wrap, and director Mark Romanek needed just one more shot from his singer star, Johnny Cash. As Romanek recalls, "I said to John, 'This is the last take. So if you want to get angry or smash something up, this is your last chance.'" Cash didn't get it. He thought Romanek meant this would be the final shot in the ailing star's life, so he had better make it good. Cash wouldn't, couldn't surrender to such defeatism. "I hope it's not the last take," he said in that baritone growl, which...

You can go to the market, walk about, buy fruits and vegetables -- the things they did 100 and 200 years ago.

    1941 Bismarck sunk by Royal Navy On May 27, 1941, the British navy sinks the German battleship Bismarck in the North Atlantic near France. The German death toll was more than 2,000. On February 14, 1939, the 823-foot Bismarck was launched at Hamburg. Nazi leader Adolf Hitler hoped that the state-of-the-art battleship would herald the rebirth of the German surface battle fleet. However, after the outbreak of war, Britain closely guarded ocean routes from Germany to the Atlantic Ocean, and only U-boats moved freely through the war zone. In May 1941, the order was given for the Bismarck to break...

    Congressman raises money, eyes Senate seat By ROB CHRISTENSEN, Staff Writer WASHINGTON -- There is little mystery why U.S. Rep. Richard Burr has become the hottest commodity in the North Carolina Republican Party -- the White House's choice for the Senate seat held by Democrat John Edwards. Burr, a 47-year-old Winston-Salem resident, is bright enough to master the intricacies of national health-care policy, funny enough to trade quips with radio host Don Imus, and charming enough to sell his political views the way he once sold microwaves. With the endorsement of party elders ranging from former Sen. Jesse Helms to...
