Don't let anyone fool you into saying that Unofficial is about anything other than binge drinking. It's not about getting an early start for St. Patrick's Day, nor is it about academically minded students wanting to study on the actual St. Patrick's Day and still get in a night of drinking at some point. It is most certainly not about the most misused word in Champaign County: tradition.

If you’ve been wondering, “Where can I catch a cheesy film about cave explorers being menaced by giant centipedes?” you’re in luck. This year’s Insect Fear Film Festival, which has been dubbed “Centipede Cinema,” features just such a production.
We looked very carefully at whether to spend the money for a new bookmobile in
this time of tightening budgets. The cost of a new vehicle, along with annual operating costs, didn't seem like the best use of taxpayer dollars when we're working hard to meet overall increases in demand for library services.
The current bookmobile, a 20-year-old vehicle that served as a library on wheels and stopped at around 20 locations each week, would have cost the library approximately $200,000 to replace, according to the library's press release. The bookmobile's annual operating costs totaled $150,879.
He admitted the facts, and the judge found him guilty.
In a sad and twisted case that involved more than a few missteps, it seems like Gene Amberg is going to have to pay the piper for failure to report suspicions of child abuse to the Department of Children and Family Services.
The SPlog is available to our community of readers and Editors to get the word out about upcoming shows, events, ideas, quick opinions, photos, videos, overheard quotes — anything really, provided that it doesn't break the law.
SPlog posts aren't meant to be read as full articles — most often, they are short, quick bits of information about something that doesn't necessarily warrant a full article, though are worthy of posting.
Smile Politely also allows businesses who advertise with the magazine to access the SPlog to promote most anything and everything that's going on with them in their world.
Ultimately, we monitor the SPlog closely, so if we don't post your submission, we'll get in touch with you and discuss why. If every submission got posted, well, things would get messy in a hurry. We hope you understand.
Editors' note: Smile Politely maintains the right to edit all SPlog entries for grammar, punctuation, and syntax, but will never change the meaning or content of any submissions.
