Zombie, horror and sci-fi fans fans descended on Atlanta recently for the second annual Walker Stalker Convention.
"We had 600 people come together for a party and I thought well, if we can do a fan meet up, slowly ticket sales went from 1,000 to 2,000 to 3,000," said James Frazier, co-founder of Walker Stalker Con. "It's people that all have a common bond, a common love for zombies."
From costumes to custom-made zombie weaponry, vendors had it all for the horror fans.
That electric car could save you a lot of money at the pump. But when you buy less gas, you also pay less in gas taxes, which help pay for road repair.
"As we have more fuel-efficient vehicles on the road, less and less funding to maintain roads, and it just spells disaster, ultimately, for our transportation system," said Michelle Godfrey with the Oregon Department of Transportation, "So, we have to find an alternative."
The alternative, Godfrey said, is a pilot program starting next year, where 5,000 volunteers can pay their road repair taxes per mile, rather than per gallon of gas.
