    "The haunted pillar, they say you would have bad luck if you touched it. So we would touch and it see what happened," said Jennings. Years later and the childish curiosity over Augusta's haunted pillar is peaking because a driver did more than just touch it, they mowed it over trying to make a left hand turn, knocking down all the legends wrapped in the ton of bricks. ... The liquor store across the street has had a front row seat to the madness. "There's been people busting it up and taking pieces of it away," said Bill's Place owner,...

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- Augusta's famous Haunted Pillar on the corner of Broad Street and Fifth Street has a legend for being cursed. But the site is much less eerie after a car crash brings the 10-foot tower crumbling down Sunday morning. The popular tourist attraction, known for its urban legend and long history near Downtown Augusta, is actually being credited for possibly saving a life. "It didn't really kick in until I talked to the officer," says an awestruck Cory Tyler. "After that, I realized it was the Haunted Pillar." A haunting piece of Augusta history is not looking...

    The Nation magazine used to think that getting the Augusta National Golf Club (that atavistic private institution in Georgia that hosts the prestigious Masters tournament each year) to open its membership to women was at least a moderately big deal. In 2002, Eric Alterman in those pages ridiculed what he called were the club's "Cro-Magnon men-only admissions policies," the controversies over which were "aptly described by the Toronto Star's Antonia Zerbisias as 'a dust-up over how a rich white man's club won't let rich white women join, and how CBS still plans to showcase the course when it hosts the...

Augusta -- located in Georgia -- had been a woman-free zone since it opened for business in 1933 ... and only started allowing black men into the club in 1990. Seriously, 1990. But this morning Augusta announced it had invited the former Secretary of State, along with South Carolina businesswoman Darla Moore, to join the club. Rice is an avid golfer. Guess they'll have to build a new locker...
