“You know those people you meet whose eyes are sort of vacant and dull, lifeless? Those who are just slumping along life’s crowded highways, not ever really reaching deeper into their soul’s pockets? What about the opposite type, those whose eyes dance and beam and cry and flash? The ones who seem to glow, despite their imperfections, who tend to attract good friends and good happenings like a magnet, who seem to beam out a calm and fearless sense of self? Well, which would you rather be? How clearly do you want to see? I thought so. Here’s looking at you, kid.” — Sera Beak, “The Red Book: A Deliciously Unorthodox Approach to Igniting Your Divine Spark.”

he Charleston Jazz Orchestra is changing the pace for the fifth show in its 2010 concert season. On Oct. 23 at 7 p.m., the 20-piece aggregation will take the stage at the Charleston Music Hall under the hand of conductor and artistic director Charlton Singleton. It’s billed as Pops! and will offer a repertoire of gems, mostly from the 1970s and ’80s. This presentation is an example of how deep Singleton’s musical bag of tricks is. Along with its fabulous execution, his orchestra is known for taking on challenging music of all types that it expresses through the jazz idiom. This time, he has mined the treasure trove of American popular music for two sets of songs that are full of heavy, backbeat grooves driven home by brilliant brass, funky rhythms and mellifluous melodies. Vocals are back, too. Regular patrons of CJO shows know, and keep requesting, that the band use singers. They’ve seen Bobby Alvarez, Ann Caldwell, Duda Lucena, Tony Burke, Leah Suarez, Singleton himself and others on the stage of the band’s home, the House of Swing. Debuting at Pops! will be Amanda Hudson, lead singer with Hot Sauce, a local band that plays from the rock, R&B and pop books. Singleton, like all the great bandleaders, is a master at picking the right musicians for the right situations. I had that affirmed, once again, for me at the band’s rehearsal Saturday at Charleston Southern University. One of the songs he’s using is “You’ll Never Find,” an evergreen ballad written by Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff and released by the great baritone crooner, Lou Rawls, on his 1976 album, “All Things in Time.” Present-day pop star Michael Buble released it on his self-titled debut album in 1973. The easy-going shuffle rhythm and the lush bed laid down by the horns envelop the simple, elegant,

CJO pops concert features oldies but goodies

No pops show – at least one performed by a jazz band – would be complete without funk, the R&B form that’s highlighted by its inthe-pocket swing, bluesy melodies and earthy harmonies that run like syrup and sound just as sweet.

Fred Wesley performed last spring at McCrady’s in the Mark Sterbank Jazz Group.

if you go

Another thing that bodes well for this show with Wesley is that he’s been playing with many CJO members in small bands for years now. He feels right in Charleston, too. He lives in Manning now but was born in another great American river city like Charleston, Mobile, Ala. Wesley last played here in the Jazz Artists of Charleston Upstairs at McCrady’s series during this year’s Piccolo Spoleto Festival. He was front and center in Mark Sterbank’s Hymns & Spirituals concert there. He and Sterbank, a CJO saxophone section leader and JAC board member, are very good friends. Other songs featured that night will include Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” a country hit written by Don Gibson and made popular by Kitty Wells that the great Ray Charles made into a pop hit and a Grammy winner in 1962. You’ll also get to hear Hudson sing the chestnut “At Last,” written in 1941 by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren for the 1941 film “Orchestra

Wives,” and improvised on for a wildly popular version by Etta James in 1960. Nat “King” Cole had it on a best-selling album, “Love Is the Thing,” in 1957. Then, there’s Earth Wind and Fire, whose sound will be in the House of Swing the Saturday after next. Singleton scored for orchestra an arrangement of “Getaway,” the EWF major hit from the 1976 Spirit album, written by Beloyd Taylor and Peter Cor Belenky, from a small band arrangement by percussionist Quentin Baxter. Again, if rehearsal Saturday was any indication, on show night, this one will go to the heart of the matter. It’s a straight ahead interpretation that shows how the rhythm section is fundamental in small or large bands. This is probably the jazziest rendition of a pop song on the program. If you thought Latin Night, CJO’s last concert, was a blast, this one promises to be a blast-off. Jack McCray, author of “Charleston Jazz,” can be reached at jackjmccray@aol.com.


Tweet, tweet ...

F

or the past few weeks, Twitter has been gradually unveiling a redesign of its site. And, in good news, Twitter is allowing users to go back and forth between the “old” and “new” versions of the site, letting Twitterers become accustomed to the new features and layout before forcing it upon them. Personally, I never got into Twitter. It just seems too disorganized. The redesign seems to be help make the site a bit more usable. For example, because Twitter updates are limited to 140-characters, if you want to post a link, you usually have to have the URL shortened through a website such as bit.ly or TinyURL. And, if you want to post a photo, you have to do it through TwitPic or Yfrog photo uploaders. While some tweeters are comfortable with it, I’m not keen on clicking on any link if I don’t know where it’s going. The “new” Twitter, however, is supposed to make it a

lot easier to view photos and videos posted on the site. Also, the homepage is updated in the redesign. The old Twitter format featured mostly chronological tweets by users one follows, with a small sidebar on the right with suggestions of Twitterers to follow, follower requests, and user statistics, such as how many followers you have or how many Tweets you’ve sent out. The redesign turns the homepage into more of a split screen, with updates from people you follow on the left and the right sidebar expanded to about half the page. I only noticed one real advantage to this new design: When you click on a

Twitter user’s screen-name, a miniprofile of the user appears in the right box. Another perk to the new design moved interactive information from the right sidebar to just underneath the “What’s Happening?” update box. Now it’s easier to see who’s mentioned you in a Tweet (through the “@yourTwittername” tab), who’s re-tweeted your update (aka re-posted whatever you’ve written) and so on. Hash tags (the # sign before a keyword) just help with searching. Anyone can create one, but by putting say “#knitting” in a tweet, other Twitterers can use the search function to find related knitting tweets. If you’re looking for breaking news, then the hash tag search seems totally helpful. All-in-all, the new design might be a little awkward at first, but it seems to be mostly good changes. Also, in my Twitter research, I checked out an online Twitter dictionary, an

easy way to catch up with the Twitter-lingo: www.webopedia.com/quick_ref/Twitter_Dictionary_Guide.asp. Beside definitions for more mainstream online references such as “ttyl,” “brb” and “idk,” Twitter dictionaries also offer some more interesting fare: A few Twitter words that scared me include “emerga-tweet,” which is defined as “a tweet sent out during an emergency when 911 is unavailable,” and “twalking,” which isn’t Twitter stalking as I guessed, but instead “tweeting while walking.” Also of concern is “twitterphoria,” defined as the “feelings of elation one experiences when they add someone as a friend and the person adds them in return.” Can’t say I’ve ever been that jazzed about any online friendship, but maybe that’s just me. Hopefully, you will like the new Twitter features. If not, you can (almost) always rely on a phone for basic communication.

which I did briefly. I thought it was far more interesting to watch the dancers with no sound. It was kind of comical, actually. The visual art that lined so many walls and rooms at KK represented too many artists to list here (personal props though, to artist Matt Foreman’s stencil sketches of pro wrestlers), and I must admit, as someone who can barely draw a stick figure, I was impressed by most of what I saw. But truth be told, Kulture Klash is as much a social event as an art show, and arguably the most fun event of its type in the Lowcountry.

Last week was the sixth installment of Kulture Klash and my favorite to date. Granted, I’ve only been to two, but I was thoroughly impressed with the KK held at the Navy Yard’s Noisette building last November. The successful arts festival overwhelmed me with a barrage of visual and performance art in a large setting, and seemed to be part philanthropy and part party. Yes, please. This year, KK kicked the party into high gear. Past events had been held at the Navy Yard’s smaller 10 Storehouse Row building. I had heard past attendees say they preferred that setting and now I can see why. For every brief moment of uncomfortable, heavy foot traffic, the overall vibe was

We were making fairy beds. Obviously. The artists from the “Unearthed” show opening at Rick Rhodes Studios last week made me wish I still made fairy beds. It was clear that these artists — Kristy Bishop, Sarah Frierson, Nina Garner, and Hirona Matsuda — view the world with fresh perspectives, and use their works to attempt to redefine beauty in things that many of us pass right by, every day, all day long.

Beats Antique

BY MATTHEW GODBEY

Special to The Post and Courier

Beats Antique Friday at The Pour House It’s unlike most anything you’ve ever heard. A collaboration of Middle East, World and jazz music with strong influences of electronic and hip-hop all in one band. Hailing from San Francisco, Beats Antique is a trio featuring renowned belly dancer Zoe Jakes (The Indigo Belly Dance Company and Bellydance Superstars), drummer Tommy Cappel and multi-instrumentalist David Satori that combines performance art and dance into its live music performances. Formed in 2007, Beats Antique has already seen the release of four albums and tours and collaborations with Bassnectar, John Popper (Blues Traveler) and Les Claypool. Beats Antique will perform a post-Phish show on Friday at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Hwy., with beat boxer Lynx. Tickets are $13 in advance or with your Phish ticket stub and $15 the day of the show. Doors are set to open at 10 p.m. Visit www.charlestonpourhouse.com or call 571-4343 for more information.

The Shanquia Brown Saturday at The Tin Roof Just when the Charleston music scene was beginning to sound redundant and boring, something exploded. It was heard in the backs of dive bars, house party living rooms and in the whispers of word-of-mouth advertising. It was The Shanquia Brown. The young quartet sprang onto the scene from relative obscurity with a fresh sound and vibrant energy that had begun to fade from the area in recent years, bringing a renewed sense of excitement in local music. The Shanquia Brown is rock ’n’ roll. No need to get fancy here, the music is too special to demean with a series of hyphens and comparisons. It’s just rock ’n’ roll. There’s no pretension or arrogance; no hyper-intellectualism or selfrighteous claims. It’s about having fun and enjoying the moments of liberation that the music gives you. The Shanquia Brown is simple and simple is good. The music is fast and in your face, with chaotic rhythms and riffs that somehow manage to never derail. The band keeps a distinct edge-of-the-seat feeling among listeners. Please see EVENTS, Page 14E

hey received a Grammy in 1997 for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. They also received American Music Awards in 1997 and 1998. They’ve recorded 11 studio albums and have released five different greatest hits compilations. They’ve had chart-topping hits with such late, great hip-hop legends as Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G. and Easy E. They’ve been touring for almost 20 years, and already played a show in the Lowcountry last April. On Friday, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony return to the Music Farm, and they’re still bringing something different to

the table. “We’re always on the road,” MC Wish Bone said. “If there’s a demand for us, we’re going to come there.

We’ll be there, healthy and alive, and be able to sing out to our fans from our souls.” Krayzie-Bone, Layzie-Bone, Fleshn-Bone and Wish Bone, four of the original five members, have been on tour since Sept. 22. The tour has scheduled dates in 35 different cities, and features some throw-back material for longtime Bone Thugs fans. The performances will showcase music primarily from the group’s 1995 break-through release, “E 1999 Eternal,” the album that featured the hits, “Tha Crossroads” and “1st of tha Month.” “The majority is E 1999 stuff, but we got a few surprises in there,” Wish Bone said. “We’re doing a lot of songs we never performed live before.” When Bone Thugs came to the Music Farm earlier this year, they performed with a DJ in typical hip-hop fashion. They’re changing it up this time around. This leg of the tour features a live band, consisting of guitar, bass, keys, drums and trumpet. “The tour is going great. We’ve got the live band out here. It’s a whole ’nother show with actual musicians adding to the harmonies.” From the inception of the band in 1993 through its 2010 release, “Uni5: The World’s Enemy,” the band has stayed true to its anything-goes approach to hip-hop and the heart and soul that they put into the content of their songs. They’ve adapted to the changing music industry and the rise of the bittersweet Internet involvement in music distribution. “Strength is the one overriding message in our music,” Wish Bone said. “For us to have longevity, we must be doing something right in the Lord’s eyes and the eyes of our fans. We actually use (our music) to give out some of the knowledge we’ve gained. The music business has changed dramatically because the world has changed a lot. The Internet can be a blessing and a curse.” After the long road to iconic status in the hip-hop world, the Bone Thugs continue to make plans for the future. They’ve started a record label, BTNH Worldwide, which they use to release their own records and the records of other promising acts that they feel will advance the music industry. “We’ve definitely got to keep touring,” Wish Bone said. “I think we were blessed with this longevity and health. I’m definitely getting my first solo album out there (within the next year) and focusing on my company with Crazy Bone. I want to sit back and be a boss instead of the actual worker and spend some more time with my family.”

For the one-night-only “Unplugged,” concert master Yuriy Bekker has assembled a cadre of CSO musicians — among them, principal violinist Jan-Marie Christy Joyce, pianist Andrew Armstrong along, cellist Norbert Lewandowski and violinist Alan Molina — to perform live chamber music from composers Schubert, Brahms and Vaughan Williams. Meanwhile, CBT dancers will execute ballets from Bruce Marks (“A Lark Ascending”), Salvatore Aiello (“Notturno”) and two works from Bahr, including the premiere of her latest ballet “Seasons of the Sun,” a reflection on the cycles of life.

Phish quiz

By Paul Robinson, Special to The Post and Courier

Charleston’s Phish phans get pumped for Friday and Saturday shows

1) What other instrument is drummer Jon Fishman well known for soloing on, other than the drums? a. A 1974 Craftsman Weed Whacker b. His grandmother’s 1964 Cast-Iron Skillet c. A 1965 Electrolux Vacuum Cleaner d. A 1974 Hohner Atlantic Accordion 2) What year did Phish form as a band? a. 1982 b. 1983 c. 1984 d. 1985 3) What is the title of Guitarist Trey Anastasio’s senior project and nicknamed, Gamehenge? a. Wilson Goes Down b. The Man Who Fell Into Tomorrow c. The Man Who Stepped Into Yesterday d. The Stories of Icculus

Special to The Post and Courier

My neighbor, Aaron, came over one afternoon and asked me, “Would you like to see the most important documents in all of Charleston?” “Sure” I replied, not knowing what could be that major, and in Aaron’s possession. He pulled two tickets out of an envelope. “Here they are. Tickets to both Phish shows in Charleston. The FedEx man just delivered them!” I first saw Phish in 1999. It’s the only time I’ve ever seen the band live, but it’s the concert I refer to most in conversations. There’s something about Phish that sticks with you, creates the most outrageous memories, gets in your head and doesn’t fade. Charleston has always been a city of Phish fans (or “phans”), and this weekend, we will get what we most desire: two shows, right here in the Lowcountry. In the past week, I’ve spoken with several loyal Charleston phans, and I’ve realized something important: There are all kinds of people who dig Phish. Everyone from co-workers to random friends and relatives have it on the brain this week. “I’m quite unusual in the sense that being a phan largely began as a family affair,” says Lee Cobb, local Phish enthusiast. “My cousins and my uncle first enticed my dad and me to listen to Phish. They loved the band, gave my dad some music and convinced us to come to a few shows. We were hooked. At the last concert I went to, in Greenville, N.C., we went with my sister, my dad, my stepmother, two aunts, an uncle, three cousins Cronen and three stepsiblings. It was actually a blast.” “The “phamily” widens every year,” says Jason Cronen. “People brush them off as a simple hippie band, but the truth is that their music crosses cultures more than a lot of other acts.” “I wish the real world could be more like the atmosphere at a Phish show,” says Caitlin McKee. “The vibe of the people that attend is so relaxed. I have a certain sense of freedom the moment I step into the parking lot. It is effortless to be yourself and let loose — no judgment passed. “ Yet true Phishheads also are quick to point out that, while shows are about fun and parties, it’s about the music first and foremost. Nate Chapman, a graduate of the College of Charleston, wrote a master’s thesis on the jam band culture. “There are people who are just there to party,” says Chapman. “They all know there’s gonna be

show info

Phish will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the North Charleston Coliseum, 5001 Coliseum Drive. Tickets are $60, plus fees. Call 529-5000 or visit ticketmaster.com.

4) What CD was covered 2 days after the 1998 Halloween Show in Las Vegas, NV? (hint: There was not a 3rd set) a. “Joe’s Garage” (Frank Zappa) b. “Dark Side Of The Moon” (Pink Floyd) c. “Toys In The Attic” (Aerosmith) d. “American Beauty” (The Grateful Dead)

in 1995 and 1996,” says Coker. “They are finally coming back after 14 years. I’ll be working and trying to catch as much of it as I can. This will also be my fiancee’s first show. ... I’m trying to prepare her!” “I had to convince one of my best friends to change the date of her engagement party in order to make the show,” admits McKee. “I have been following Phish since high school. There’s no way I’d miss their first performance here in 14 years!”

It’s really easy to throw on a tie-dyed T-shirt and look like you belong. But I think all of that has brought the true phans together even more. We recognize each other, the authentic followers of Phish.” “What’s really there is rock ’n’ roll,” agrees Aaron Brummitt. “It’s not souvenir shirts, or pre-parties. It’s the music.” Speaking of the music, what is it about Phish’s tunes that keeps us coming back for more? “We don’t want the next big pop song. We want a mixture of jazz, rock, — a live improv show,” explains Chapman. “I got into Phish because I was tired of mainstream music. I grew up in a small town, and I never knew what it was all about. Then my friends had stickers on their cars and I wanted to find out more.” “Once you become a true phan, you listen more to the live shows than the studio albums because you can trade shows with all the other phans,” says Alan Coker, marketing manager at the North Charleston Coliseum. “I listen to the live stuff as opposed to the studio stuff. But I’ve always loved the album ‘Billy Breathes.’ It’s got a lot of good music that even non-diehard phans can enjoy.” For this tour, phans are pumped about the opportunity to use their tickets to obtain the live setlist after the shows. “After the show, you can use each ticket to download that show’s music,” explains Coker. “Just type in the barcode and you can download the show for free. It’s included in the ticket price, and it’s really cool.” Followers of Phish are known for traveling all around the United States to enjoy the shows, but this weekend, local phans are excited to be hosting friends and family for the two-night run at the coliseum. “The coliseum opened in 1993, and Phish played

Pre- and postPhish parties If you are looking for fun pre- and post-events to bring your couch-dwelling guests to, plenty of them are going on. In fact, the whole weekend should be filled with great music. McKee The Pour House on James Island will feature post-Phish shows on Friday and Saturday nights at a discounted price with your Phish ticket stub. On Friday night, go see Beats Antique for $13 with a stub. On Saturday night, take in a late-night performance of the Heavy Pets. As for pre-parties, try Aloft Hotel at 4875 Tanger Outlet Blvd. Saturday afternoon, hosted by Jason Cronen and a few other local phans. “We talked about having an event at Aloft for a while,” says Cronen. “It’s just five minutes from the arena. We really want to bring the tailgating environment over there and encourage people to relax and have fun.” The Aloft party will feature live music by Way Station and Robert Rice spinning tunes. You also can sample beers by Sierra Nevada and drinks from Absolut Vodka. The party runs 1-6 p.m. and is first-come, first-served. Check out the Facebook page for ticket information at “Phish Pre-party at Aloft.” The Pour House also will have free live music on the deck all day Saturday, including acoustic Grateful Dead sets to get you into the hipswaying mood, as well as a performance by For the Faithful. And if you’re more traditional, the parking lot at the coliseum is always an option on Saturday. “The parking lots will open at 2 p.m. on Saturday, and tailgating will be allowed,” says Coker. “Doors for the show open at 6:30, and the shows start at 7:30. We expect to have about 12,000 phans here each night!” “Phish is always a chance to see my friends from out of town, and from really far away,” says Brummitt. “Except it’s not a wedding or a funeral — it’s a party with awesome music.”

topped with canned black olive slices, red onions, capers and artichoke chunks. It was literally drowned in a warm oil “vinaigrette.” Flavor compositions good in theory; not execution. Redfish Portofino ($24.99) fared better because I asked for the “orange lobster sauce” on the side. A nice filet of fish was seasoned with a Cajun-Creole pepper blend, garnished with lump crabmeat nuggets and accompanied by over-cooked yellow and zucchini squash and green beans bright and toothsome as well as grey and soft. The sauce takes its name from orange flavoring and what tasted like lobster base as there were no lobster pieces in evidence. The roux, a bit raw. With a little attention to cooking basics, this dish could earn high marks. Our server was attentive, friendly and knew the menu. Other staff members stopped by to check on food quality and dining satisfaction. The bars were doing brisk trade and the restaurant was nearly filled. It is clear that the Guy Harvey enterprise earns high marks for maritime consciousness. They are advocates for sustainability in both commercial and recreational fishing. They serve no swordfish, grouper or shark. But when bringing “coastal” coals to our Lowcountry Newcastle, they fall short of the mark for our culinary compass.

Something comforting about Bagel Cafe BY ROB YOUNG

Special to The Post and Courier

O

n Folly Road, the Bagel Cafe has proven itself to be a venerable stopping point for day-trippers headed to Folly Beach, as for all travelers and residents in between. The erstwhile Bagel Nation (never mind the signage overhead that still refers to the former name) is a rocksolid breakfast/lunch option, providing a variety of bagels, from the old-favorite “everything” to the sugarysweet Frazzle. Bagel Cafe spreads the love, actually, from the Big Apple to the City of Brotherly Love, and from the Rocky Mountains to the east of the Cooper. Just take a look at the tags. The menu name-checks the Five Boroughs, serving up about 10 or so sandwiches referencing New York. There’s the Wall Street with turkey and bacon ($6.50), the Staten Island with turkey,

roast beef and Swiss ($6.50), the Queens with ham and Genoa salami ($6.50), and a personal favorite: the Liberty Lox ($7.50) with cream cheese and onions. Meanwhile, the Philly Steak makes do with hot roast beef, provolone, grilled onions and green peppers, while the Denver bagel ($3.25) features a mix of green peppers, tomatoes and onions tucked into an egg and topped with cheese. And, of course, the Mount Pleasant offers a breakfaststyle sandwich of eggs, hot corned beef or pastrami and melted Swiss cheese. Bagel Cafe also stocks several wraps, panini, omelets and specialty sandwiches, such as the Lebanese gonzo garbanzo with humus, garlic, spices and cream cheese, and the white Pisa bagel, containing olive oil, garlic, pesto pizza sauce and mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. With these old standbys at the ready, it’s no wonder the Bagel Cafe continues to be a preferred gathering space.

‘Never Let Me Go,’

a meditation on life ate from Hailsham when they turn 18 and relocate to a collection of remote farm buildings known as The Cottages, where they are free to mingle but discouraged from venturing too often into town. Kathy, who harbored a raging crush on Tommy when they were younger, stands aside silently when he and Ruth become a couple as teenagers. Of the trio, Kathy, the film’s narrator, is the quietest and most observant. Tommy, who has managed to control the tantrums he suffered as a boy, seems to drift along wherever the current takes him. Ruth, who appears at times to be motivated by jealousy and resentment, is the most eager to enjoy whatever pleasures life has to offer, as if she were racing against some looming clock.

Iamikan’s artwork lines walls of Core Consciousness BY VIKKI MATSIS

Special to The Post and Courier

T

he work of Iamikan Courts honors the magic and mystery of nature. While living in Turkey, Courts would mix paint with seawater, salt crystals and natural dyes and use the Earth as a painting material. Since then, he has been perfecting the formulas he uses as an art medium with equations and calculations, altering the properties of the original substance. “We are all magicians. I let the results speak for themselves. No need to break down the synchronicity of what you are doing, that takes away all the magic of what art is anyhow. Nature continues to be the greatest magician to mankind,” he said. Having never picked up a paint brush, the self-taught artist works in solitude as he uses his hands to apply oil, acrylic, natural materials and a substantial amount of resin to create a final product. Courts said the most difficult part of the process is having the medium adhere to one of the many surfaces he uses: glass, canvas, steel, wood, pressed paper and acrylic glass. His latest creations are inspired by geodes, what Courts calls “crystallized motion.” Shattered glass, paint and resin develop over time. Each piece is an original and can take up to one year to complete. For Courts, each painting maintains a sacred, mystical quality by spending three months in complete darkness, allowing the formulas to harden, stabilize and exist “without the influence of perception.” “Even now, there is still an evolution of the nature of these pieces. There is crystallization in these pieces that will continue to evolve,” he said. “It’s not just a painting on a wall where it is a still frame. For me, they are all highly charged.” Courts work is showcased exclusively at the Art of Core Consciousness Gallery, 29 Broad St. in downtown Charleston.

ACE’S ON BRIDGE By BOBBY WOLFF

All this week’s deals come from the World Championship last year in Sao Paulo, to mark the ongoing championships in Philadelphia. At many tables South played three no-trump, speedily down on a diamond lead. But in Russia vs. Italy, the Italian declarer brought home a club partscore while the Russian declarer, Yuri Khiuppenen, reached five clubs via the auction shown and received a heart lead. The simplest way to try to set up the spades for two diamond discardswouldbetoleadaspade to the nine. But Khiuppenen did better.Hecashedbothtophearts, crossed with a club to hand to ruff out the hearts, and drew the rest of the trumps before leading a spade toward dummy, HehadworkedouttoplayWest forthedoubletonspadeace(since West was marked with five diamondsandthreeheartsandthree clubs). If West ducked his ace, he would be endplayed on the next roundofspades.Ifhetookhisace, declarerwouldhavetwodiscards for his diamond losers. Incidentally, at another table, South played five clubs doubled and made a slight slip when he played a trump to his queen at once. Now the 3-0 trump break meant that to sort out the entry position, he needed to play a spade up at once. But in fact he played a second trump instead andnowcouldnolongerachieve the endplay, so was forced to lead a spade to the nine. Unlucky!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There are so many ways to support the cause this month, from purchasing a limited edition item with the proceeds going towards finding a cure to mailing in those pink Yoplait yogurt lids. So in honor of all the women who have fought the disease, this week’s trivia is all about the color pink. Last week’s winner, Bruce Carver, is being challenged by Jessica Guthartz who’s a student and barista.

QUESTIONS

BRUCE’S ANSWERS 1. Pink Floyd. 2. Guessing “The Breakfast Club,” but that doesn’t sound right. 3. Don’t know. What they eat? 4. Javert. 5. “Something Pink.” 6. Avon. 7. Can we skip this one? 8. Getting a pink slip. 9. In “Lady and the Tramp,” the male dog. 10. Isn’t that from “Grease?”

CONCLUSION For the second week in a row, another Head2Head champion has trouble hanging onto the title. New contestant Guthartz easily knocked off Carver to claim the victory. Will she have better luck making it two in a row? Stay tuned.

EAR ABBY: Do you have any data on the success of remarrying your ex-spouse? After being married to my husband for 25 years, we divorced due to his infidelity. We have been divorced for eight years and have had no contact. A family member’s funeral brought us face-to-face again, and we have been in touch ever since. Neither of us has remarried or been in a relationship. We realize that we still have feelings for each other and have discussed remarrying in the future. I love him, but I’m wary of being hurt again. What do you think? Does remarrying your ex ever work? — HAVING SECOND (TIME) THOUGHTS DEAR SECOND THOUGHTS: It can work, provided you’re both willing to deal with the issues that broke you up in the first place. By that, I mean that you must be ready to examine whether there was something missing in the marriage that caused your husband to cheat, or whether he has a character flaw and would repeat his infidelity. I strongly recommend you do this with the as-

DEAR ABBY sistance of a licensed marriage counselor. If you both go through the process, remarrying your ex could work. If you don’t, you would be courting another dose of heartache.
