I find it really disappointing that there is not a mention in the Banner-Herald that Brown Hall, my daughter's dorm on the UGA Health Sciences campus, caught fire last night and sent all the students into the drizzling, freezing cold. After shivering for a while, they were moved to wait in an adjacent building until at midnight, they had a few minutes to grab a few things and get somewhere to sleep. Some had places to go, some went to hotels. By the time my daughter got in, got quickly packed, and got settled at some friends' house, it was 1:30 am. She has bronchitis, and her cough is worse today.(Imagine that!) One boy was in the shower and had no warm coat and his hair froze! If the Banner-Herald doesn't report this, folks, don't go there for your news - they don't have any!
