    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee was going to offer a speech class for its workers next month to do just that, until it got canceled.

(CNN) - Actor, Shia LaBeouf gets artsy for his next stunt.  The actor, who was recently seen sporting a paper bag that read, "I'm not famous anymore" at the Berlin International Film Festival, now has a gallery show in L.A.  It's called "Hashtag I Am Sorry."  According to accounts, visitors enter one at a time, and select something from a table of items corresponding to his career, like a "Transformers" toy.  They then get to spend some one-on-one time with the actor, who is wearing a tux and the paper bag.

Paula Deen is making a comeback.  She has created a new company that touts her southern cuisine.  Paula Deen Ventures is launching less than a year after she lost a TV contract and many sponsors over a racial slur.  Her new company includes restaurants, cruises, cookbooks and other Deen products.  Deen is partnering with Najafi Media, a Phoenix-based company which specializes in consumer distribution.  Najafi is betting on Deen's loyal fan base to put her back on top.

The Cheetah Hunt roller coaster gave riders more than they bargained for when it broke down in the middle of its ride.  It happened at Busch Gardens in Tampa.  Tampa Fire Rescue used a bucket truck to get at least 15 riders back down to safety.  The Cheetah Hunt towers 102 feet over the theme park.  It takes riders to 60-miles-an-hour in just seconds using three magnetic launchers.  Park officials are trying to determine what caused the ride to stop.
