NEWS & OPINION EDITOR’S NOTE

BY JIM MOREKIS

jim@connectsavannah.com

SUMMER is supposed to be the slow news season, but Savannah is heating up in more ways than one. If you live here, your life will be affected by two key events taking place over the next month: • The City of Savannah will have only a couple of weeks to re-do its budget in the wake of Mayor Eddie DeLoach’s recent surprise announcement that he wants City Manager Rob Hernandez to revisit the toxic and universally loathed Fire Fee. • The Savannah-Chatham County Public School System is set to adopt a 16 percent hike in property taxes.

(However, if the City does decide to raise taxes, thanks in advance for not holding me responsible for giving them the idea!) Consider the conundrum: 1) If the Fire Fee is really intended to address serious budget problems, then one assumes cutting it in half will make it much less effective at its intended purpose. 2) If cutting it in half, or entirely, means that arts and social service programs will again face draconian cuts (as Hernandez threatened months ago), then the Mayor will be jumping out of the fire fee into the frying pan, politically speaking. 3) Since the expected revenue from the Fire Fee has basically already been spent, taxpayers are screwed no matter what. 4) Then there’s the issue of the stealth regressive tax break: As first reported here back in January

The schools will probably need about half a million dollars or less in the next fiscal year to cover their portion of the Fire Fee after discounts are applied for. That’s a lot of money, but the schools’ new tax hike will have to raise enough revenue to cover over $10 million in currently unbudgeted expense. If for some strange reason you feel good about the school system’s ability to adequately manage their own budget crunch, consider that they just mistakenly told 1,600 students — some with A and B grade point averages — that they would need to attend summer school. Parents got the phone call explaining the mistake literally the night before the summer session was to begin. So the school district will offer summer school to them anyway, since they already

The Fire Fee has become so radioactive that attempts to fix it only seem to make it more unpalatable, and call more attention to why it was such a bad idea to begin with. Whether you own or rent, or whether you have children or don’t, in some form or another your life here is about to become more expensive. Simply put, the finances of both the City and the school district seem to be at a crisis point beyond the ability of our leaders to navigate. And you will now be tasked with paying the price for that, literally —whether through paying more in taxes or rent, or in seeing a beloved arts or social program on the chopping block. Of the two budget issues, the Fire Fee is most on people’s minds. It has become so radioactive that attempts to fix it only seem to make it even more unpalatable, and call more attention to why it was such a bad idea to begin with. In what seems to have been a total surprise to other members of Council, Mayor DeLoach announced that he will direct City Manager Hernandez to examine the possibility of a roughly fifty percent reduction in the Fire Fee. It’s like Solomon’s proposal to cut the baby in half — except without Solomon’s wisdom in knowing that such a thing was never going to happen. In a way, cutting the Fire Fee in half is the least wise course of action. At this point it would make more sense for the City to drop the fee and simply raise taxes, as the School Board often does at the drop of a hat.

and based on research by Nick Palumbo, because the initial Fire Fee included a small City property tax rollback, it would have given a de facto tax break to anyone in the City with property at or above a fair market value of $640,000. At the proposed cut-rate Fire Fee, that tipping point goes down to as low as any home with a $300,000 fair market value. This to me is the crux of the Fire Fee problem: 1) If the goal of the Fire Fee is to raise money, why offer a tax break with it at all? 2) And why should affluent homeowners be the only ones to come out ahead as a result of the new City Fire Fee policy? The irony is that while the City is to be commended for its zeal in not wanting to raise property tax rates, they won’t even get credit for that — the public perceives the Fire Fee as a de facto tax regardless. The issue of who to blame for taxes brings up the school tax hike, a significant one set to be adopted later this month. There’s no doubt that the school system has benefited from the media and public focus on the City’s Fire Fee. The School Board will again get a free pass for yet another major increase in property taxes. Contrary to what most people think, the massive size of the school tax increase is far beyond what is needed to cover the City’s imposition of the Fire Fee on schoolowned properties.

made plans based on the bogus information, which was chalked up to “incorrect coding.” How inefficient is that? Such systemic mismanagement and bloated, blatant incompetence, if it were done by our City government instead of the schools, would prompt an immediate outcry and demands for electoral change — and rightly so. Except that the School Board elections mostly came and went (the runoff for School Board president is July 24), with voter turnout at an anemic 17 percent. The school system will get away with this debacle, like they get away with most of them. Meanwhile, in stark contrast, the political futures of the Mayor and many on City Council are very much in flux as of this writing. Their reelection stock falls precipitously every day the Fire Fee remains any type of reality. The Mayor’s false dichotomy of “Accept the Fire Fee or face huge cuts in City services” seems particularly bullying and insulting, not to mention politically unsustainable. The smart thing to do would be to eliminate the Fire Fee entirely. But I’m not sure if some of the egos involved will allow that. In any event, the damage to credibility, if not to the budget, may already be irreparable. CS

Celebrating the blessings of bicycling BY JOHN BENNETT

john@bicyclecampaign.org

MAY IS a busy month in Savannah, so it’s understandable that an important anniversary passed without much fanfare, but I’m a little embarrassed I didn’t notice it. That’s right, the first ever News Cycle column was published on May 24, 2011. What was I writing about seven years ago? Pretty much the same things I’ve written about ever since: The economic benefits of bicycling, both to individuals and our community as a whole. Our huge potential as a bicycle tourism destination. The dangerous situations many Savannahians face every day as they ride bikes to work, to school, and to other destinations on streets configured to maximize the speed and throughput of motor vehicles. And the unexpected moments of joy and discovery that can happen when you move through your city under your own power. What in the world does that mean? Back in 2007, when I was still working at the local art college and relatively new to bicycle commuting, I made a list of sounds I heard on my way to work on morning: Wind. Wind chimes. A construction worker singing “Cat’s in the Cradle” at the top of his lungs. Birds singing at the tops of their lungs (song unknown). Engine noise as cars rapidly accelerated from stop signs at one side of the block.

Brake noise as cars rapidly decelerated for stops signs at the other end of the same block. The whine of a circular saw. The click of my bike’s freewheel. The intent of the list, I think, was to document the mostly pleasurable auditory events that I would have missed had I been driving instead of riding my bike. Over the years I’ve been bicycling for daily transportation, I’ve accumulated memories of moments I would have surely missed, or at least not experienced as vividly, had I been behind the wheel. I remember riding home from work after dark (and after a long day) to find the ground in Guckenheimer Park covered by a blanket of fog that looked like something out of a Hammer Film Production. I half expected Christopher Lee to emerge from an azalea bush in his Dracula costume. It certainly put me in the mood for Halloween. I remember riding downtown for lunch on a hot Saturday in July and being caught in a downpour on the way home. Once you are completely soaked, my wife and I discovered, you really don’t mind the rain. In fact, it was refreshing. We still recall it as one of the most enjoyable bike rides we’ve ever taken together. And of course, I remember Jan. 3 when I got my first taste of snow-biking. I’m trying to repress the memory from several days later, of riding over a patch of ice, hitting the pavement hard, and sliding through a busy intersection on my side. I’ll be thinking about the episodes — chilly fall fog, cooling summer rains, and even snow and ice — frequently we enter the worst months for bicycling in

Savannah. I take every opportunity to encourage people to try bicycle commuting or riding to the grocery store, out to dinner, or to a Bananas game, but in July and August I admit it’s a tough sell. For those of us who have the privilege of driving, riding a bike to work when the temperature and humidity are already oppressive at 7 a.m. is a commitment. But it could be worse. At least we don’t have hills. The flat terrain of coastal Georgia is one of the few blessings for the thousands of people in our city who ride, not by choice, but out of necessity during the summer. More street trees for shade, traffic signals that don’t require people to get off their bikes and press a “beg button” for a chance to cross the street, and better behavior by those of us who drive would also do a lot to help Savannah cyclists weather the warmer months. Over the last several weeks, I’ve noticed people on bikes and on foot outnumber people in cars by a considerable margin on my morning commute on Lincoln Street, yet the lion’s share of the street is dedicated to cars. But that’s still not enough to satisfy us drivers. I regularly encounter cars parked in the bike lane and on sidewalks. This is not only potentially hazardous to people who walk and ride bikes, it sends a very clear message to them: My car and convenience are more important than you. On humid summer days, it’s hard not to get hot under the collar when people behave selfishly. When the weather is hot, let’s try harder to be cool to each other. CS


NEWS & OPINION POLITICS

City back to square one on budget after hasty retreat on Fire Fee

City Hall remains embroiled in the controversy over the Fire Fee. PHOTO BY GEOFF L. JOHNSON

BY JIM MOREKIS

IF LAST week’s meeting was any indication, Mayor Eddie DeLoach’s warning the day prior of potential extreme cuts in City services if the controversial Fire Fee is reduced by half seemed to take many Council members on both sides of the debate by surprise. The clock is now ticking, as the decision means Council and City Manager Rob Hernandez must come up with a new budget in about two weeks, before the next fiscal year’s millage rates must be set according to state law. Mayor DeLoach said at the regular Thursday meeting that he has directed City Manager to “Modify the numbers and bring us something forward so people can feel better about” the Fire Fee.  At Wednesday’s impromptu solo press conference, DeLoach apologized for bringing “too much change too fast” and said the City was no going to “Plan B.” However, the Mayor’s Plan B might not be much better received than the Fire Fee itself. The Mayor said he would support cutting the Fire Fee by half — down to $120 per single-family house per year — but that draconian budget cuts might result, including laying off as many as five percent of City employees. The about-face by the Mayor came shortly after the Tourism Leadership Council and the Chamber of Commerce released survey results of their business members, almost all of whom were in forceful opposition to the new Fire Fee. That opposition came on the heels of organized opposition from citizens and clergy alike. Some of the latter would see their tax-exempt churches pay as much as $10-15,000 per year in Fire Fees. Alderman Van Johnson responded that while he was “blindsided” by the Mayor’s press conference, he commended the Mayor for his “chutzpah” in admitting the policy needed changing. Alderman Tony Thomas accused the Mayor of “throwing the City Manager under the bus.” 

“You outlined a plan... but I don’t know if the City Manager has analyzed that plan,” Thomas said. Several Council members, including Alderman Bill Durrence and Alderwoman Estella Shabazz, insinuated that they had no idea the Mayor’s Wednesday announcement was coming. Most Council members were reluctant to back any of DeLoach’s specific suggestions, especially the idea of cutting five percent of the City workforce. A lengthy back-and-forth included Johnson directly telling the Mayor that “We warned you that this would be unpopular. We warned you that this would affect poor folks. We warned you that this would affect nonprofits.” One citizen spoke to Council briefly about the issue. Rick Ellison, President of Retirees Unite For the Future, told Council that  “Savannah’s going to hell in a handbasket.... we’re getting killed by taxes from the school board, killed by the Fire Fee, and killed by the parking rates downtown.” When Alderman Julian Miller tried to explain that the school board’s proposed 16 percent tax hike largely had nothing to do with the City’s Fire Fee, Alderman Johnson responded that “those of us who’ve been up here for a while” — meaning himself and Alderman Thomas — “understand that all these things are interconnected” in the public mind.  In explaining the difficulties of redoing the budget to conform to the newly reduced Fire Fee, City Manager Hernandez at one point became visibly frustrated

with Mayor and Council. “I need you to be very clear... as to what the rules of engagement are in bringing you options and recommendations,” he said.  If the Fire Fee is reduced as the Mayor directed, “I have to make up $11.2 million in revenue this fiscal year” which is already halfway over, he said.  “I need you to clarify what’s in play and what’s not in play,” Hernandez said. Hernandez explicitly urged Council not to suggest that he direct the $10 million revenue surplus toward reducing the Fire Fee.  “It is not prudent to use one-time money to go toward recurring expenses,” he said of the surplus, which has already been earmarked for other purposes in previous Council votes. “It would come back to bite us at some point in the future.” In addition, the surplus has essentially already been spent. The unforeseen windfall has already been earmarked for budget items including $1.5 million to the fund balance, $2 million to the Cultural Arts Center, $1 million to return Montgomery Street to twoway traffic, $1.4 million to pay down debt on the Fairgrounds purchase, $1 million for a controversial early childhood center, $500,000 for more malware response software due to the recent virus attack, and ironically, $600,000 in “wage adjustment reserve for police and — firefighters. Council is expecting to take up the City Manager’s options at a budget retreat June 18. Hernandez was tasked to include an option without a Fire Fee at all.  CS

NEWS & OPINION STRAIGHT DOPE

Do dogs have better protection from ticks than people do? Why aren’t there flea collars for people? I see ads for products to protect pets from fleas and ticks, and nasty tick-borne diseases are becoming more common. I’m tired of having to strip and do an extensive tick check after every walk in the woods. —Bill CONSIDER THE DOG, Bill, and how it lives. It sheds and slobbers. It dwells close to the ground. It doesn’t shower much. It rolls around in dirt, and will happily do the same in feces or rotting animal remains where available. Let’s just say if your personal habits depart much from the aforementioned, you might not really need flea control of any sort. Particularly in developed countries, modern hygiene has rendered fleas pretty much a medical nonissue. Where they remain a problem (e.g. in sub-Saharan Africa) it’s often because they burrow into the feet and hands—more easily countered with a pesticide wash than with dedicated neckwear. But let’s separate the fleas from the ticks here, and the havoc-wreaking potential of each. Granted, fleas have run up a more

impressive score if you take the historical view—they carried bubonic plague, after all. But while we’ve got plague all but under control these days, one can’t say the same about the infectious diseases passed along by ticks, which as you note present increasingly grave threats to human health. Blame climate change in part, as more regions become warm and humid enough to support tick activity; growing populations of deer and mice that carry ticks are playing a role too. The major Lyme-spreading tick was found in just 30 percent of American counties in 1998, but nearly 50 percent by 2016. Last month, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention welcomed summer by announcing a three-fold increase in the number of people infected with vector-borne diseases—vectors here being ticks, mosquitoes, and their colleagues—between 2004 and 2016, noting that public-health bodies are woefully underprepared for the growing epidemiological menace. Conditions spread by ticks constitute a small rogues’ gallery of disease, including low-profile up-and-comers like babesiosis and old favorites like Rocky Mountain spotted fever. But Lyme disease remains the biggest vector-borne game in town:

some 30,000 cases are reported every year in the U.S., and studies estimate the actual number is ten times that. If you don’t catch it early, long-term Lyme symptoms include arthritic joint pain, brain inflammation, and facial palsy. And it’s true: dogs do enjoy better protection against Lyme than we do, thanks to readily available vaccination. Why no equivalent for dog’s best friend? In fact, a safe, largely effective Lyme vaccine was cleared for use 20 years ago—and disappeared shortly thereafter. Lymerix, as it was called, had the misfortune of showing up at a crucial juncture of the anti-vax era—i.e., shortly after the 1998 publication of the infamous (and since retracted) report in the Lancet falsely linking the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine with autism. That year, during the FDA approval process for Lymerix, some members of the reviewing panel expressed concerns the vaccine could theoretically trigger an immune response leading to arthritis. The drug having tested safe in clinical trials and this risk being, again, purely hypothetical, the panel approved it unanimously. Word got out, though, to a public then in its first flush of vaccine panic. Soon enough, news reports were linking

“...while we’ve got plague all but under control these days, one can’t say the same about the infectious diseases passed along by ticks, which as you note present increasingly grave threats to human health.”

Lymerix to isolated cases of fever and joint pain, and sales of the product fell through the floor. A 2007 study found no increased incidence of arthritis in vaccine recipients, but the Lymerix ship had long since sailed: facing lawsuits and turning relatively little profit, its manufacturer pulled it off the market in 2002. (Other factors that probably didn’t help its chances: the vaccine was expensive, and even after the 12-month, three-shot regimen required for full protection you still had a non-negligible 20 percent chance of remaining susceptible to Lyme disease anyway.) Where’s that leave us? A French company is developing a Lyme vaccine that might provide even better protection, though its CEO acknowledges it will be “hard to convince anti-vax lobbyists,” and the drug’s years away from public release. And while Lyme may be the worst tickborne offender out there, it may not hold that title for long: meet the Powassan virus, currently still rare but on the rise in the Northeast. Yale epidemiologist Durland Fish wrote recently that Powassan “could surpass Lyme disease in its impact upon public health”: infection leads to encephalitis, causing fatality in 10 percent of cases and permanent brain damage in fully half. There’s no vaccine for this one either, although in Europe they’re vaccinating against a similar form of encephalitis, so we’ve at least got a starting place. But you may as well get used to those full-body tick checks, Bill. One worries any sensible prophylactic treatment could meet its match in a vaccine-wary American populace, just as Lyme vaccine did and may again. You can wear bug spray, tall socks, and long sleeves, but, as they say, there’s no cure for stupid. CS BY CECIL ADAMS

Savannah educator found dead was under investigation by SVU

A Savannah educator who was under investigation by the Savannah Police Department’s Special Victims Unit was discovered deceased in his home June 8 in unincorporated Chatham County. “Today Savannah Police officers arrived at the home of Robert Anderson to serve a warrant for sexual exploitation of children for possession of child pornography and discovered him deceased,” police reported the day of the discovery. “Anderson was a 26-year-old elementary school teacher at Charles Ellis Montessori Academy and has held several other supervisory roles over children. Anderson was still actively employed at the school. Chatham County Police Department is investigating the death, which is not considered suspicious in nature,” police say. The investigation by SPD’s Special Victim’s Unit remains active and ongoing. Further details on the investigation is not available at this time.Anyone who has information on this case can contact the SPD tip line at (912) 525-3124 or the Special Victims Unit at (912) 651-6742.

CNT makes international arrest

A fugitive wanted by the ChathamSavannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT) has been apprehended outside the U.S. On June 8, CNT fugitive, 27-year-old Anton Barimayev of Toronto, Canada, was brought back to Chatham County by the United States Marshals (USM). He currently remains in the Chatham County Detention Center. “In 2012, undercover CNT agents identified Barimayev as a dealer Barimayev capable of supplying various forms of controlled substances. CNT learned Barimayev was a native of Ukraine and currently in the United States on a visa from Canada,” CNT reports. “CNT’s investigation into Barimayev furthered, agents were successful in making multiple drug purchases from him to include cocaine and methamphetamine. Also, CNT suspected Barimayev was locally manufacturing large amounts of methamphetamine. In late 2012, CNT was closing in on Barimayev when agents determined he was no longer in the area and believed to have returned to Canada,”

CNT says. CNT “obtained a large number of felony drug-related warrants for Barimayev and referred his apprehension to the USM. In the years that followed, CNT and the USM obtained information that suggested Barimayev was likely in Toronto, Canada,” CNT says. In mid-2017, he was located in Toronto, Canada, where he remained in custody. In addition to CNT charges, Barimayev also has a “hold” by the United States of Immigration.

Fugitive wanted for Savannah drug trafficking is arrested in Jamaica

“A fugitive who was on the run for more than a year and a half has been located outside the U.S.,” reports the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT). On June 4, 38-year-old Marcus “Mickey” Scott of Savannah was located in Kingston, Jamaica. Scott turned himself over to authorities at the Kingston Embassy and remains in custody while awaiting extradition back to the US. Scott has been wanted by the CNT since Sept. 2016. “After announcing Scott was wanted by CNT, Scott’s apprehension was referred to the United States Marshals. As the investigation into Scott’s whereabouts developed, it was determined Scott was likely in Jamaica at which time authorities requested Jamaican law enforcement’s assistance in locating him. Scott’s arrest marks CNT’s first international apprehension,” CNT says. Scott was wanted by CNT following a yearlong joint investigation that involved CNT, the DEA and the FBI. The investigation began in 2015 and ended in late 2016. The investigation identified a local organization in Chatham County responsible for distributing kilograms of cocaine, large amounts of methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and stolen firearms. “It was determined that the drugs were coming from Houston, Texas, and Atlanta, Georgia, and most drugs were being transported by semi-trailer trucks. The estimated amounts being transported ranged from 10 to 50 kilograms with a wholesale street value of $360,000 up to $1.8 million,” CNT says. The organization was found to be operating trap houses throughout the Savannah-Chatham area. “A trap house is a location, usually residential, where controlled substances are distributed or stored. A total of 16 people were arrested/ indicted as a result of the investigation. CS

In Charleston, South Carolina, Cara Koscinski and her whole family were looking forward to her son Jacob’s May 19 graduation party. The Post and Courier reported he had excelled in his Christianbased homeschool program, earning a 4.79 GPA and the summa cum laude distinction, an honor Koscinski included in the wording on the cake she ordered online from her local Publix store. When the software informed her “profane/special characters (are) not allowed,” Koscinski made clear that phrase was Latin, meaning “with the highest distinction,” and even included a link to a website explaining it. Still, when the cake arrived, it read: “Congratulations Jacob! Summa --- laude Class of 2018.” Jacob was embarrassed, and Koscinski had to tell her 70-year-old mother why the store had censored the word. Publix offered to remake the cake, but as Koscinski noted, “You only graduate once.”

Police officers in North Ridgeville, Ohio, were sure the man who called them at 5:26 a.m. on May 19 to report being followed by a pig was impaired and hallucinating. But sure enough, the Associated Press reported, officers on the scene found a completely sober man, walking home from the Elyria Amtrak station with a pig trailing behind him. The department’s Facebook page reported that Patrolman Kuduzovic wrangled the oinker into the back seat of his cruiser and later secured it in the station’s dog kennels, where the owner later retrieved it. “Also,” the post noted, “we will mention the irony of the pig in a police car now so that anyone that thinks they’re funny is actually unoriginal and trying too hard.” Touche.

Oops!

• Lyons, New York, resident Jesse Graham, 53, must have been surprised when deputies of the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department appeared at his door on May 11. WHEC TV reported that Graham, a fugitive wanted by the Mooresville (North Carolina) Police Department, had apparently accidentally dialed 911, summoning the deputies himself. Graham was charged with being a fugitive from justice and possession of marijuana, and he awaits extradition to North Carolina. • In Lawrence, Kansas, architecture students designed a new bike rack for the Prairie Acre Ribbon Classroom, the first outdoor classroom at the University of Kansas. The metal rack features the letters P-A-R-C, but viewed from another vantage point, they spell C-R-A-P. Social media lit up after a photo was posted May 13, including, “It’ll make a fine bike rack. Crap a diem!” Project PARC KU responded: “The photograph shown is not the intended vantage point, nor is it the message of our project,” but at press time, the university had not announced any action, according to the Wichita Eagle-Beacon.

Anger Management

• Frustration with the cable company boiled over in Ridgewood, New Jersey, on May 7, when a dispute between an Optimum employee and a woman left the cable worker stranded on high. While the employee was in an elevated bucket working on lines, northjersey.com reported, a 59-year-old woman turned off the truck and “took utility property” before walking away, making it impossible for the worker to lower the bucket. Ridgeview police charged the woman with harassment, false imprisonment, disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.

• Dymund Ellis, 19, was charged with stabbing and killing her roommate, Jace Trevon Ernst, 25, in North Las Vegas, Nevada, after a May 4 argument. According to North Las Vegas Police, Ellis became upset after Ernst repeatedly talked while she tried to watch a TV show, telling him to “shut up.” When he responded with an expletive, she went to the kitchen for a knife, reported Fox News. Police said Ellis had threatened Ernst with a knife about 10 times in the last couple of months, but he had been able to get the knife away from her. Ellis told an officer that “she has anger problems and she just got extremely upset tonight.”

Least Competent Criminals

• Comrades in arms Mike Mulligan, Michael Martin and Emma St. Claire made the mistake of leaving their burglary booty visible in their car in Nevada City, California. So on May 16, when they were stopped by a Grass Valley Police officer, the prosthetic arm officers spotted pointed the finger at them as the perpetrators of a Nevada County home burglary the previous week. On its Facebook page, the Nevada County Sheriff’s office described the limb as “the exact arm that was stolen in the burglary.” All three were booked into the Wayne Brown Correctional Facility in Nevada City, Fox News reported, and the arm has been returned to a “very appreciative owner.” • Deputy Henry Guzman with the Broward County Sheriff’s Office in Florida made his first mistake when he shoplifted -- three days in a row -- from a Lauderdale Lakes Walmart. His second, and perhaps more devastating, mistake was wearing his uniform while doing so. Guzman, a 13-year veteran of the department, stole DVDs and “Star Wars” action figures valued at about

What a Crock!

As it negotiated a roundabout in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland, a dump truck filled with manure on May 21 tipped over, spilling its load onto a Peugot 208 with the driver inside. A witness said he “couldn’t believe anyone got out alive,” but the male driver was able to crawl through the pile of excrement and was unhurt, if stinky, Metro News reported. The car, however, “was crushed,” says a police spokesman.

The Naked Truth

In Huntsville, Arkansas, police responded to a call at 4 a.m. May 21 from a homeowner who said a tattooed man was ringing his doorbell. The man left, but police identified him from security video as Robert Conn, 31, and caught up with him after a motorist reported seeing a naked man lying facedown in the road. When police arrived, they told KFSM TV, Conn was talking to himself and acting as if being naked in public was normal. CS ANDREW MCMEEL SYNDICATES

must go on Southern Rock icons return for a show at The Stage On Bay

BY JIM MOREKIS

jim@connectsavannah.com

THE MARSHALL TUCKER BAND was just in town about a year and a half ago, for a memorable gig at the Lucas Theatre. They were originally booked to be the inaugural concert at the then-brand new Stage On Bay. But that venue was unavailable due to a political fight with the City of Savannah, so the show was moved at the last minute to the Lucas. Though one of the last classic Southern Rock icons left standing, MTB continues to remain relevant. Their string of ‘70s hits, including “Can’t You See?”, “Heard It in a Love Song,” “Fire on the Mountain,” and “Take the Highway,” remain radio staples. Named for a blind piano tuner in the band’s native Spartanburg, S.C., the Marshall Tucker Band doesn’t shy away from other musical influences, as proven by recent collabs with Kid Rock and the Zac Brown Band (ZBB member Clay Cook is MTB vocalist Doug Gray’s nephew). Their current, still-busy touring schedule includes a top billing on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s current farewell tour. Vocalist Doug Gray is the only original member still in the band; among other personnel changes, founding bassist Tommy Caldwell died in a car crash in 1980, and Tommy’s brother, founding guitarist and songwriter Toy Caldwell, died in 1993. This year they are back at The Stage On Bay; we spoke to Gray last week.

You guys had to play at the Lucas last year. Not such a bad way to have to change plans.

Doug Gray: It’s a great venue. Of course

The Marshall Tucker Band were founded in 1972.

we’ve played hundreds and hundreds of venues, but that place is amazing. It’s obvious that someone put a lot of time and money and love to recreate something of beauty and maintain it like that. What explains Southern Rock’s continuing popularity? It brings back a special memory. Music does that to people. People long to have a peaceful feeling. They want something they can relate to. And no matter their age, they can relate to these Southern bands. You wouldn’t believe the crowds we’ve been playing to. We just played to over 20,000 people. And there are so many young people. We’ve been able to thread the needle with that. I like to say this kind of music isn’t coming back — it’s being found again. People’s families had to grow, people had to spread out over the country. We’ve watched children grow up. If your parents listened to us driving you around in the car, you then grew up and wanted to go to a Marshall Tucker Band show. But it ain’t easy, to be 70 years old and have to get onstage and try and kick some 17 year-old’s butt (laughs)! Growing up in the South, we always thought of Southern Rock as, well, rock. How is the genre perceived in other areas of the country? More recently, what we’ve noticed is it’s become hip to go see ‘70s bands. Seeing the Marshall Tucker Band was something different, and something unique or unusual for some folks because we’re Southern. We started seeing that happen in California early. Now, California’s a bit different

about a lot of things. Back in the day, people would take one look at us and think, “Uh-oh, look at those rednecks walking up, here comes trouble.” But now people are wanting to be a part of what we were years ago. And now our ability to do that has quadrupled. The secret is Toy Caldwell writing all those songs. They are so clean, so simple, they use simple words. It’s not a given that you could continue without Toy’s incredible talent. Our success since he’s been gone has been good for Toy’s family, too. It’s all a square deal. He and I went way back – we met after each of us had come back from Vietnam. Toy had a more mature analysis than me of what was going to happen. But we all knew we had the music in us. Not a lot of folks realize it’s Toy singing lead vocals on “Can’t You See?” And he hated to sing! That’s why I sing 99 percent of Marshall Tucker Band songs. He loved to write, but he hated to sing. When we were rehearsing “Can’t You See?” it became obvious to all of us that he really had to be the one to sing it. He was like, “Aw, man, don’t make me sing this!” (laughs) But through the years, we have a saying: Stick to the song. We give everybody freedom to be who they are, whoever they are and whatever they play in the band, but it’s these songs that keep people coming back. CS

Ships of the Sea hosts Making Waves community conversation June 15 BY RACHAEL FLORA

rachael@connectsavannah.com

“Plastic Storm,” Harry Delorme.

“Plastic Ocean,” Rachel Green.

“Oceanfill,” Lisa Watson.

Making Waves also includes installations outside in the North Garden. Cynthia Knott’s huge painting, Healing Waters, hangs above a pool of water. “Her concept is that for centuries, we’ve considered our waters to be healing, but now it’s time to heal our own waters,” Melton says. The next step is the community conversation on June 15. The participants are Jason Buelterman, mayor of Tybee Island; Harry Delorme, artist and senior curator of education at Telfair Museums; Dr. Jay

“Stuck in the Patch,” Dave Peterson.

Brandes of Skidaway Island Institute of Oceanography; and Tim Arnold of Fight Dirty Tybee. The conversation will be moderated by artist Pam Longobardi and was put together by artist and activist Paulita Bennett-Martin. “A friend and colleague of mine, Pam Longobardi, is doing a show at the Telfair, and through discussions Telfair identified me as a local expert on this issue,” explains Bennett-Martin. “The two of them said,

‘This is an issue that we’re not quite as familiar with and might you help us buy figuring out how to put together a discussion that will promote critical thinking?’ I think they wanted something new and different.” Longobardi’s piece, “Bounty, Pilfered,” is a large cornucopia of plastic found in the ocean. That piece will be placed in the Jepson Center’s Complex Uncertainties

OUR waterways are under siege. Over five trillion pieces of plastic are already in the world’s oceans. 70 percent of marine litter is non-degradable plastic. Eight million tons of plastic trash leak into the oceans per year. Hearing those numbers, you might feel resigned to hopelessness—after all, what can one person do to affect such a drastic change? However, Making Waves at Ships of the Sea sets out to show us that a drop in the bucket can still fill it up, drop by drop. Making Waves is a multi-faceted project that began May 18 with an art exhibition and website launch. Wendy Melton, curator of exhibits and education at Ships of the Sea, curated the art exhibition, which includes art by twelve artists. “I knew a few of the artists before, but there were some new interests, too,” says Melton. “I asked them to send me pictures of their previous work and their ideas of what they wanted to show—it wasn’t a juried show.” The project has been in the works for over a year. “Our goal was to eliminate single-use plastic. We have a lot of events here at the museum, and we were going through a lot of garbage,” explains Melton. “One day over a year ago I was walking around the grounds and found straw stirrers everywhere, and I was like, ‘This is so much!’ I knew I wanted to do this exhibition, just not what kind of format. But we couldn’t do it if we weren’t going to do something about the problem.” The art in Making Waves is subtly shocking. Harry Delorme’s work uses found plastic to drive home the point of how prevalent plastic is in our environment. “Harry has been doing this for over twenty years,” shares Melton. “He goes out to these locations and he picks up all this plastic from those sites. Then he takes a picture of the site and paints it and covers it with the plastic he found there. It’s laborintensive—he’s creating the environment with what’s left of the environment.” In addition to work in the gallery,

exhibition on June 15. “With environmental issues, people feel like they don’t have any way to help,” says Bennett-Martin. “We’re in an age of receiving an onslaught of problems, and that’s bad. It’s almost an exhaustion. They don’t feel connected to the problem; they often resign to being part of the solution and letting other people deal with it. If you approach things too scientifically, you put it in the silo of science, and people without that knowledge turn away. If you put it in the silo of activism, people look at things through deeper analysis and statistics. It takes any kind of perspective [brought] to the table to find solutions.” Bennett-Martin knew to choose a wide variety of experts because she and Longobardi worked previously with a cleanup group in Belize. “Since I had built the relationships, I catalyzed the community to come out and create public art with [Longobardi],” she explains. “That was my biggest lesson in why you need different disciplines in a discussion. Some people didn’t connect with the science part or weren’t interested or didn’t feel like they had what it takes, but they connected with the art part. It’s another entry point to the issue. Yes, you have to focus on an issue, but you have to remember how it’s connected to everything. It’s wild. The plastics thing, we use it for ourselves and then we lose it. Everything in the ocean is not there because we intended it to be. Who knows where it ends up? Maybe in a trachea of a whale on the other side of the planet.” The discussion is preceded by a screening of the film “STRAWS” by Linda Booker, which shows the part that straws play in plastic pollution. “It highlights the frivolous nature of straws,” Melton says. “Who really needs

them, unless you have a medical condition? They can’t be recycled; they’re useless.” She points out that recycling isn’t always the answer either since the recycling system in place in Savannah isn’t reliable. “The best solution is just not to use it,” Melton says. “Give up straws. Carry a container with you. Use canvas bags. Those plastic water bottles can be recycled, but people aren’t doing it, so if you don’t use them you don’t have to recycle them.” “We have our singular responsibility,” agrees Bennett-Martin, “but when it comes to pollution of our waterways, it’s the federal system that needs to be called into check. The amount of stuff can’t just fall on the shoulders of the consumer; it has to be regulated from the top down. It’s interesting how the government puts the responsibility on us. We can take action while also urging our government to make policies that protect us.” Indeed, action is Melton’s goal for Making Waves. “I hope people recognize it’s time for them to get involved,” she says. “That was the whole purpose for this conversation. It’s going to take all of us—it’s bigger than one entity or organization. It’s time for individuals to just take action and find one simple thing they can do. That’s been our carry-through for everything we’re doing in conjunction with this exhibition.” CS

She introduced Bin and I. Tell me about the exhibition. How do you choose which artists you represent? CZ: It’s based on the artist themselves and their vision for themselves and their work and what they bring to the table. Of course, I have to be passionate about their work.

CZ: Bin has been marketed from his time at SCAD as being a photographer, so this is his first time showing his mixed media sculptural work. BF: I was a sculptor when I was in college. I studied photography, but I made installations as well. I’ve been doing this for five years. Studying in the United States, I made a lot of work other than photography, so I decided to showcase the different art with Christina. The artwork is a five-year collection. CZ: That’s what I like about all the artists I work with and work for. They’re not one-trick ponies. They’re always pushing themselves to explore.

What’s the story behind this trailer installation? BF: I’m driving my trailer around to deliver all the shows, and it becomes a part of everyday life. This lets me showcase the toy collection I have. I stop at every antique shop along the coast; I take the benefit of traveling. It’s two, three years’ worth of collection. Tell me about The American Dream series you did. BF: The language barrier was the motivation. When I first came here, I was learning the language and I struggled. I had the desire to get connected, to be involved. This is my visual diary of real life. I’m always putting myself in the image to represent a group of people; it’s a character. What’s your ultimate goal for HAZA? CZ: I do love Savannah and I consider it home at this point, but coming back from Miami, I wanted to bring a legitimate

gallery back to Savannah. I give artists I found weren’t getting the right amount of exposure they deserved, the exposure. As a long-term goal, I’d like to have five or six sister galleries around the country, maybe internationally, and expanding the roster as I grow. Partaking in the art fairs is a big thing. Gallery shops are fine, but people confuse what a gallery is and what a retail shop is. I’d like to help develop the scene in Savannah in my own way. What do you think Savannah could stand to learn from art markets like in New York and Miami?

HAZA is Savannah’s latest art gallery with the sensibility of a gallery in a larger art market. Christina Zanetti, founder and creative director of HAZA, named it in honor of her complicated relationship with her mother, who introduced her to the art world. Her mother is Hungarian, and haza means home in Hungarian. The physical gallery space is in the Stables, a warehouse of artist studios on Rathborne Drive. Currently, HAZA exhibits artist Bin Feng’s work, a multimedia collection including a trailer hitch full of Feng’s toy collection. We spoke with Zanetti and Feng last week at the Stables.

CZ: The art business is a very weird, complicated business. Pricing the work and not ruining an artists’ career by lowering the prices to where nobody will want to invest in collection. I tell my artists it’s not a dictatorship. I like transparency and honesty with my artists. I want them to have a say in how their show goes, who they want to invite, how they want it to look. Art dealers and gallerists get a bad rep, but there are good ones out there. CS 23

CULTURE NIGHTLIFE

From Boylesque to Babs, Randy Roberts rules Entertainer brings uncanny impersonations to Club One

BY ANNA CHANDLER

WHEN guests step into Key West’s Crystal Room Cabaret at the Lateda Hotel, they are greeted by some of the world’s biggest stars all on one stage. For years, Randy Roberts has been thrilling visitors from around the world with a must-see one-man show, transforming into icons like Cher, Joan Crawford, Carol Channing, Mae West, and beyond. A true entertainer, Roberts offers a multimedia tribute with song and style, shimmering in the spotlight. When he’s crossing the stage to a pulsing beat, Roberts isn’t lip-syncing along to those classic numbers—that’s him belting it out, throwing a glossy grin at the crowd and sashaying to the rhythm. Throughout his career, Roberts’ multiversed talent has landed him on television (America’s Got Talent, One Life to Live), off-Broadway, and among Vegas’s glittering lights. It’s a path the entertainer has follwed since he was very young. Roberts, a native of Virginia, traces his first starring role back to a childhood Thanksgiving pageant (“a turkey of a show,” he reports). After high school, where Roberts took advantage of his school district’s state-of-the-art theatre, he worked as a singing waiter on a cruise ship. In the winter, the ship sailed to Florida. It was a journey that would change Roberts’ life. “At Miami Beach, we went to see a drag show in a hotel,” Roberts recounts. “It was rejuvenating.” The young talent auditioned and was hired in the “An Evening at La Cage” show. It was a springboard that launched him to the Entertainment Capital of the World. “I flew to Vegas, got hired, and became a Vegas showgirl in a huge drag revue in the main show at The Sahara Hotel called ‘Boy-lesque,’” Roberts shares. “The night I went to see the show, I cried...I saw an impersonator, a drag queen, being paid Vegas headliner money. It wasn’t even drag, it was mainstream. I said, ‘Oh my god, I don’t have to do theatre—I can do this.’” And he has—since 1986. “That’s a lot of lip gloss,” he says wryly. Roberts spent time in the Glitter Gulch in classic showgirl style—high-cut bathing suits, feathered headdresses, the works— before developing his impersonator act. Instead of lip-synching like many queens, Roberts belted out the songs of Cher, Liza Minelli, and Bette Midler himself.

Onstage, the inimitable Randy Roberts transforms into legendary entertainers through costume and song.

“I always thought, ‘I can’t sing in drag, I’ll sound like a man,’” says Roberts. “The first time I tried I was in my early 20s in Virginia. People loved it! The voice fits the face it’s coming out of, even in makeup.” During his revue, Roberts transforms into several gay icons live and in person. It’s not all about being someone else, though—Randy Roberts is a character unto her own, and that sharp tongue and those polished skills wow any crowd. “In my career path, I didn’t do a lot of the gay bar circuit,” Roberts says. “That’s not a positive or a negative, it’s just the direction I ended up going. My work was always targeted toward a straight audience—theatres, cabarets, casinos. It was okay to see the drag show in the casino. Now, everybody goes everywhere.” In his career, Roberts has performed from Biloxi to San Juan, coming home to

Key West for the last 20 years. “I have a special place in my heart for Madrid,” Roberts says, recounting some of his favorite cities he’s toured. “That’s where I started my one-man show. I went over there with a big show, and the producer left with the money. The rest of the cast left, went back to the States, and I stayed in Spain the entire year. I learned Spanish, put together my show, and Spain embraced me.” Roberts has a particular fondness for Savannah—a good thing, since we’ll be seeing a lot of him. This summer, Savannahians can see Roberts live at Club One on June 16, August 18, and in future dates. “I love Savannah people,” Roberts says. “Cal and Travis, Club One’s owners, came down to Key West to see the show and immediately said, ‘We want you in Savannah.’ To be in the room where Lady Chablis

worked, that they would ask me to come and do what I do in that spot, is really, really cool.” The legacy of the Grand Empress of Savannah is not forgotten by her forbearers. “Chablis helped open me up, and she really did bring in a whole different audience,” Roberts says. “It’s fun to follow the trail of a trailblazer. There are a lot of sequins and rhinestones along the way!” Whether you’re a fan of drag, cabaret, theatre, or Vegas-style revues, Roberts will captivate with seasoned professionalism and timeless talent. “I love Savannah and Savannah people,” he says. “I love walking around the area, love the food—it’s not good for my waistline!—but I really do love it there.” CS

EMPORIUM KITCHEN & WINE MARKET brings ‘It’ Factor to Perry Lane Hotel

The Sage Restaurant Group adds three more to the Savannah food and beverage scene BY MARIA WHITEWAY

CONNECT SAVANNAH | JUN 13-19, 2018

FROM THE ground floor to the rooftop of the newly constructed Perry Lane Hotel, the Sage Restaurant Group has infused this luxury boutique with its own brand of charm and refinement. A four-year long project in the making, on June 1, this restaurant group opened three independently defined spaces within the Perry Lane Hotel on East Perry Street for both hotel guests and locals to indulge: Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market, Wayward Bar and Peregrin Lounge. Sage Restaurant Group co-founder Peter Karpinski expounds on the space’s unique offerings: “Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market is a local retreat where guests can linger and sample, meet a friend for a quick lunch, pick up dinner for the family, or grab a snack and go,” he says. “Peregrin is the ultimate open-air rooftop lounge — whether you’re kicking back or playing lawn games, it’s the perfect setting to enjoy craft cocktails and elevated bites paired with exquisite views of the city. The Wayward brings an element of roughness with a refined aesthetic. It’s a bit more renegade, featuring arcade games, 26 a movie screening room, and a motorcycle

suspended above the bar.” The Denver-based group was founded in 2005 and now clocks in 16 restaurants. Karpinski and his team identified that hotel restaurants often accompany a stigma of poor quality fare and cheap libations. I mean, come on, we have all had a below-basic continental breakfast that gives hotels a bad rep. “(We were) confident we could shift this industry paradigm and reputation with consumers… We focus on, first and foremost, striking a chord with people who live, work, and play in the neighborhoods we are in,” Karpinski says. “We do this through restaurants and bars that complement the fabric of their locale that cities can embrace as their own, and residents can feel proud of. Our mission and vision hasn’t changed since day one, which is to create and run the best restaurants in the world.” The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market in Savannah is the second of its kind. The original stands in Fort Collins, Colorado, exuding a more free-spirited vibe, reminiscent of the Rocky Mountain life. Karpinski explains that the Savannah location is “a bit more polished and polite” while “the communities themselves are very similar — eclectic, easygoing towns with a younger demographic and colleges in and around downtown.” As with anyone who visits our city, the Sage Restaurant Group fell in love with

Savannah’s “laid-back vibe during the day and the vibrant dining and nightlife scene in the evening.” The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market boasts an open concept layout with all sight lines leading to the open kitchen, where executive Chef Andrew Wilson fires up French classics with a modern flair. Chef Wilson showcases authenticity in preparations while delighting diners with nuanced flavor profiles. After studying in Paris and spending many years helming kitchens in California and Charleston, Chef Wilson was ready to get on board with Savannah’s up and coming food revolution. “Savannah is bubbling and ready to burst — I give it two years,” Wilson estimates. Chef Wilson’s ever growing passion for French cuisine has taken roots in an appreciation for Southern fare. Chef Wilson and team have already established thriving and long-term commitments and relationships with several local farms, ranchers, fishermen, and purveyors — such as Hunter Cattle and Cane Water Farms. The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market identifies as an American brasserie, a spinoff on a French style restaurant with a relaxed setting. Its laid-back vibe yet traditional formalities (think selecting a steak knife from a wooden box) are a reflection of the menu offerings. The evening began with a crafted cocktail named Andalusia. It was a tincture

imbued with cynar, lemon, orange, pomegranate grenadine and chinotto soda. This lively sip was pleasantly bitter, thanks to the cynar, with a smooth sweet finish. Its refreshing citrus aroma and deep orange hue nailed this aperitif as brag worthy. As a Wine Market, there is a retail wine store that runs through the restaurant. Diners can order wines by the glass or pick a bottle or two from the shop, bring it over to the table, and the server will pop the cork. In my humble opinion, now that summer is upon us, it’s time to crush some rosé (which is exactly what I did). The menu was divided into several parts: soups and salads, starters, market plates, fruits de mer, entrees and signature daily suppers. Stunning starters were both the steak tartare and duck liver mousse. Both were served with baguette crisps and lightly dressed frisee salad. The duck liver was sumptuous, served with pickled grapes and whole grain mustard, a true balance of sweet and savory. The tartare was bold with briny capers, cornichon, cured egg yolk and pungent truffle. Chef Wilson’s signature Roast Barbeque Oysters are equally striking as they are mouth watering. The most succulent New Brunswick oysters in the half shell are crowned with bourbon smoked jalapeno butter, lending a smoky and spicy decadence. The Emporium Kitchen expects

these to be a local favorite, as they are unique to the area. As an entrée, the Bourbon Brined Pork Chop is a must try. A bourbon apple jus was swirled around the plate tableside, accompanied by charred Brussels sprouts and Cane Water grits. The bone-in chop was grilled over the flames of a wood fire, sealing in juices that flowed wildly when cut into. Thin slices of green apple sang with the apple soy glaze on the crispy sprouts. The grits sealed the deal, tasting like savory whipped cream. A lighter entrée for those sweltering summer nights was the local fish du jour. This was one of those classic French dishes that Chef Wilson modernized. Traditionally named petits pois à la Française, which is a dish that is made out of peas, lettuce and bacon in rich butter and ham stock gravy. Chef Wilson lightens it up with a golden fish fillet, delicate broth with steeped mint, al dente peas, braised lettuce and salty bacon. Dinner’s indulgence was matched by dessert’s decadence. The Emporium Kitchen & Wine Market’s pastry chef worked in South Korea with the U.S. Olympic Team and created tantalizing desserts for all palates.

mousse was swiped in dollops of sweet mango gelée. However, the piece de résistance was the quenelle of caramel ice cream in the plate’s center. Its bitter, on the verge of burnt, caramel sugar essence was genius and should be an Emporium staple. A fun and hands-on dessert was the Doughnut Flight for Two (I wish I did not have to share). Warm miniature French crullers, beignets, and sugared pets de nonne (translated: Nun’s farts) were dunked into butterscotch caramel and

gooey chocolate fudge. As if drinks, dinner and dessert were not enough, I recommend a nightcap on the rooftop of The Peregrin Lounge. This luxe open-air bar boasts almost 360° degree views of steeples, First Friday fireworks, the bridge and rooftops of Savannah. Its vivacious vibe, hammocks, yard games and frosé slushies make The Peregrin Lounge the “it” spot in Savannah. CS Perry Lane Hotel is at 256 E. Perry St.

THE ZOMBIE MOVIE THAT STARTED IT ALL

SCAD Cinema Circle celebrates 40th anniversary of George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead BY JIM MOREKIS

The gore and violence in the film was considered shocking in its day.

CONNECT SAVANNAH | JUN 13-19, 2018

WHETHER it’s The Godfather or the first Star Wars or Titanic or anything in between, no matter our generation, we’ve all got that one movie that really hit us hard the first time we saw it and has stayed with us ever since. For Jim Reed —longtime curator and founder of the local Psychotronic Film Series — that movie is unquestionably George A. Romero’s intensely dark 1978 classic, Dawn of the Dead. “It had a profound impact on my life. This is the movie that got me excited about films and about filmmaking,” Reed recalls of the film, now marking its 40th anniversary. “It jump-started a love of fringe and provocative motion pictures, and opened my eyes to the notion that something as seemingly one-dimensional as a zombie movie could actually contain hidden subtexts and meanings, and operate on multiple artistic levels,” he says. This weekend’s SCAD Cinema Circle screening of Romero’s Dawn of the Dead — not to be confused with an inferior 2004 remake — kicks off a series of different “zombie apocalypse”-themed films at Trustees over the next few weeks. The always engaging and entertaining Reed, who is a former SCAD student himself, along with SCAD sound design prof David Stone, will host and moderate a Q&A session at the screening. Reed says the key to understanding and appreciating Dawn of the Dead is not to look at it as strictly a horror film. “It’s ostensibly a horror movie, but that’s sort of a Trojan horse,” he says. “It’s actually a savage and brutal piece of social criticism. It skewers and shames the ugliness of American consumer culture and our history of racism and classism.” And, oddly enough, it’s also a comedy of sorts. “There’s a lot of humor in it as well,” Reed says. “That’s another thing about Romero: He’s sly and sardonic. There’s a real element of a circus sideshow in the film.” Dawn of the Dead was also groundbreaking in other ways. “When this film came out, even though there is no nudity and almost no foul language, it was originally given an X rating. This might be the only X-rated movie with no sex of any kind whatsoever,” Reed 28 laughs.

“At the time it was considered so disturbing that they wanted to discourage anyone under 21 to even set foot in the theatre.” However, a young Jim Reed was a notable exception — he first saw it when he was about ten years old. “My dad took me. I think they let me in because we lived in a little town in Tennessee and they just didn’t understand the ratings guidelines,” Reed laughs. Reed says the experience was so powerful, it stays with him to this day. “It was a midnight showing. I went back the next night to see it two nights in a row, I was so flabbergasted. You have to remember this is way before VHS or HBO. So if you wanted to see a movie more than once, the only option was to go back to the movie theatre,” he says. “Just in the first 10 minutes I was stunned. Romero just hits the audience over the head,” he recalls. “This kind of violence was shocking then, but it’s now regularly seen

in primetime on basic cable. It’s quite graphic, but less graphic than what you see on HBO today. Romero changed the course of cinema the way Lenny Bruce changed the course of standup comedy.” While an X rating doesn’t have the force of law, it would have been the commercial kiss of death — “newspapers and magazines would refuse to accept advertising for an X-rated film,” Reed explains. So Romero decided to release it unrated, a novel move at the time. “That was a landmark decision,” Reed says. “Up to that point, only foreign specialty films had been released unrated, because it was just assumed that their sensibilities didn’t translate to the American market.” Reed stresses that this isn’t one of those movies you can just pull up on Netflix or Amazon. “For a lot of reasons, this cut of this film is extremely difficult to find. You’re only going to see it in this form at this screening, as it was meant to be seen by its creators, in

a beautiful, darkened theater.” Referring to his own trademark film series, he says Dawn of the Dead “is easily the most ‘psychotronic’ movie to ever appear in this series, and it’s a pleasure and an honor to introduce the film and then moderate a discussion on its legacy and merits as a landmark American film. “I daresay there would be no Psychotronic Film Society of Savannah were it not for Romero’s Dawn of the Dead,” he concludes.

OCEAN’S 8

//1 During the first decade of the 21st century, filmgoers could count on Steven Soderbergh gifting them a new Ocean’s flick every few years. The behind-thescenes gist was presumably the same for all three pictures — basically, a bunch of movie stars got together with their directing buddy to shoot a few sequences in between their nonstop partying through European and American hot spots — but, in a reversal of the norm, here was a franchise that actually improved as it progressed. The 2001 release Ocean’s Eleven, a remake of a middling Rat Pack movie from 1960, offered amusing turns from Brad Pitt, Bernie Mac and Elliott Gould but otherwise had little going on beneath its air of cool collectedness. The 2004 follow-up Ocean’s Twelve added a few more narrative complications and made better use of its all-star cast (particularly Matt Damon and Julia Roberts). Yet it wasn’t until 2007’s Ocean’s Thirteen that everything clicked just right, largely because it was the first film where it truly felt like there was something at stake in its convoluted, house-of-cards plotline. Those cards take something of a tumble in Ocean’s 8, not so much a reboot of the franchise as a continuation with different players. Soderbergh is still attached as producer (The Hunger Games’ Gary Ross takes over as director), Gould returns briefly as Reuben Tishkoff to maintain some semblance of continuity, and there are frequent discussions centered around George Clooney’s Danny Ocean, who supposedly has died in the interim (I say supposedly, because it’s routinely pondered throughout the film as to whether he’s really dead, just in case Clooney ever opts to return to the fold for an easy paycheck). The central character is now Danny’s sister Debbie (Sandra Bullock), just wrapping up a jail sentence and eager to pull off a massive score. Her idea is to steal a necklace valued at $150 million – easier schemed than done since said bauble has been kept in an underground vault for the past few decades. But Debbie sets into motion a plot that will result in the necklace being worn to the Met Gala by pampered movie star Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), at which point she plans to pilfer the jewelry. To assist her in her robbery, she assembles a team whose members include her BFF and former partner in crime (Cate Blanchett), a computer hacker (Rihanna), a fence (Sarah Paulson), a forger (Mindy Kaling), a street hustler (Awkwafina), and the fashion designer (Helena Bonham Carter) who will be dressing Daphne for the Met charity event.

OCEAN’S 8

To paraphrase Julie Andrews (and maybe Emily Blunt?) as Mary Poppins, Debbie’s plan is practically perfect in every way — which helps explain why the movie is anything but. Heist flicks rely on things going wrong to ratchet up that tension and provide a series of savory twists and turns, but Ross (co-scripting with Olivia Milch) ends up devising a caper scheme that runs too smoothly. As such, there’s only one significant plot twist and zero complications, leading to a narrative woefully lacking in any manner of intrigue or suspense. Fortunately, many of the players provide some oomph to the proceedings. Like Clooney before them, Bullock and Blanchett are required to do nothing more than coast on their movie-star charms, but Carter is amusingly flighty, Rihanna is appropriately self-assured, and Awkwafina manages to steal some scenes right along with those diamonds. There’s also a late-inning appearance by James Corden, who’s very funny as a persistent investigator sent by the insurance company to locate the necklace. It initially appears as if Corden’s character will goose the story in an unexpected direction, but like everyone else (meaning those in the audience), he’s just there to admire the pretty people and remain amused at the lightheartedness of it all.

FIRST REFORMED

///1 Like Martin Scorsese with religion and Clint Eastwood with gun culture, Paul Schrader has spent a huge chuck of his career as writer and/or director examining the omniscient specter of violence — how it’s triggered, how it manifests itself, and how it’s ultimately settled. It would be facile to say he has finally found his definitive answer in First Reformed, but it might be accurate to state that the writer of Taxi Driver, Hardcore and Light Sleeper has added another puzzle piece that allows the image to come into sharper focus than before. A haunting and meditative work that

also centers on Schrader’s other topic of note — religion (no surprise from a man who was raised by strict Calvinists and not able to see a movie until he was 17) — First Reformed stars Ethan Hawke as Reverend Toller, a parish pastor living in upstate New York. Still feeling remorse over the fact that he urged his son to volunteer to fight in the Iraq war — a suggestion that led to his boy’s death — Toller divides his time between delivering sermons to his mostly empty church and hitting the bottle. But after one of his parishioners, the pregnant Mary (Amanda Seyfried), asks him to speak to her husband Michael (Philip Ettinger), an environmental activist who might be harboring suicidal tendencies, Toller finds his sense of purpose renewed. But it also leads to a string of conflicts — with a church organization that is increasingly more devoted to profits than people, with a venal right-wing sponsor (Michael Gaston) who uses his philanthropy to mask his utter contempt for the earth and its inhabitants, and, most tellingly, with his own attitudes toward righteousness and redemption. Like practically all of Schrader’s protagonists — even Jesus himself in the Scorsese-directed, Schrader-scripted The Last Temptation of Christ — Reverend Toller is a tortured individual whose ultimate reckoning must be through a trial of violence. Yet one of the most intriguing aspects about First Reformed is its inexorable march toward a climax that seems preordained. Or is it? Without resorting to spoilers, suffice to note that the conclusion is one that’s open to interpretation and certain to invigorate and infuriate audience members in equal measure. If that appears to be a copout on Schrader’s part, it’s actually the proper denouement for a work as curious and challenging as this one. CS

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19)

My Aries acquaintance Tatiana decided to eliminate sugar from her diet. She drew up a plan to avoid it completely for 30 days, hoping to permanently break its hold over her. I was surprised to learn that she began the project by making a Dessert Altar in her bedroom, where she placed a chocolate cake and five kinds of candy. She testified that it compelled her willpower to work even harder and become even stronger than if she had excluded all sweet treats from her sight. Do you think this strenuous trick might work for you as you battle your own personal equivalent of a sugar addiction? If not, devise an equally potent strategy. You’re on the verge of forever escaping a temptation that’s no good for you. Or you’re close to vanquishing an influence that has undermined you. Or both.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You have caressed and finessed The Problem. You have tickled and teased and tinkered with it. Now I suggest you let it alone for a while. Give it breathing room. Allow it to evolve under the influence of the tweaks you have instigated. Although you may need to return and do further work in a few weeks, my guess is that The Problem’s knots are now destined to metamorphose into seeds. The awkwardness you massaged with your love and care will eventually yield a useful magic.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

44

“Whether you love what you love or live in divided ceaseless revolt against it, what you love is your fate.” Gemini poet Frank Bidart wrote that in his poem “Guilty of Dust,” and now I offer it to you. Why? Because it’s an excellent time to be honest with yourself as you identify whom and what you love. It’s also a favorable phase to assess whether you are in any sense at odds with whom and what you love; and if you find you are, to figure out how to be in more harmonic alignment with whom and what you love. Finally, dear Gemini, now is a key moment to vividly register the fact that the story of your life in the coming years will pivot around your rela-

tionship with whom and what you love.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Congratulations on the work you’ve done to cleanse the psychic toxins from your soul, Cancerian. I love how brave you’ve been as you’ve jettisoned outworn shticks, inadequate theories, and irrelevant worries. It makes my heart sing to have seen you summon the self-respect necessary to stick up for your dreams in the face of so many confusing signals. I do feel a tinge of sadness that your heroism hasn’t been better appreciated by those around you. Is there anything you can do to compensate? Like maybe intensify the appreciation you give yourself?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

I hope you’re reaching the final stages of your year-long project to make yourself as solid and steady as possible. I trust you have been building a stable foundation that will serve you well for at least the next five years. I pray you have been creating a rich sense of community and establishing vital new traditions and surrounding yourself with environments that bring out the best in you. If there’s any more work to be done in these sacred tasks, intensify your efforts in the coming weeks. If you’re behind schedule, please make up for lost time.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

“Necessity is the mother of invention,” says an old proverb. In other words, when your need for some correction or improvement becomes overwhelming, you may be driven to get creative. Engineer Allen Dale put a different spin on the issue. He said that “if necessity is the mother of invention, then laziness is the father.” Sci-fi writer Robert Heinlein agreed, asserting that “progress is made by lazy men looking for easier ways to do things.” I’m not sure if necessity or laziness will be your motivation, Virgo, but I suspect that the coming weeks could be a golden age of invention for you. What practical innovations might you launch? What useful improvements can you finagle? (P.S. Philosopher Alfred North Whitehead

attributed the primary drive for innovative ideas and gizmos to “pleasurable intellectual curiosity.”)

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Would you have turned out wiser and wealthier if you had dropped out of school in third grade? Would it have been better to apprentice yourself to a family of wolves or coyotes rather than trusting your educational fate to institutions whose job it was to acclimate you to society’s madness? I’m happy to let you know that you’re entering a phase when you’ll find it easier than usual to unlearn any old conditioning that might be suppressing your ability to fulfill your rich potentials. I urge you to seek out opportunities to unleash your skills and enhance your intelligence.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The temptation to overdramatize is strong. Going through with a splashy but messy conclusion may have a perverse appeal. But why not wrap things up with an elegant whisper instead of a garish bang? Rather than impressing everyone with how amazingly complicated your crazy life is, why not quietly lay the foundations for a low-key resolution that will set the stage for a productive sequel? Taking the latter route will be much easier on your karma, and in my opinion will make for just as interesting a story.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Each of us harbors rough, vulnerable, controversial, or unhoned facets of our identity. And every one of us periodically reaches turning points when it becomes problematic to keep those qualities buried or immature. We need to make them more visible and develop their potential. I suspect you have arrived at such a turning point. So on behalf of the cosmos, I hereby invite you to enjoy a period of ripening and self-revelation. And I do mean “enjoy.” Find a way to have fun.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

For the next two-plus weeks, an unusual rule will be in effect: The more you lose,

the more you gain. That means you will have an aptitude for eliminating hassles, banishing stress, and shedding defense mechanisms. You’ll be able to purge emotional congestion that has been preventing clarity. You’ll have good intuitions about how to separate yourself from influences that have made you weak or angry. I’m excited for you, Capricorn! A load of old, moldy karma could dissolve and disperse in what seems like a twinkling. If all goes well, you’ll be traveling much lighter by July 1.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

I suggest you avoid starting a flirtatious correspondence with a convict who’ll be in jail for another 28 years. OK? And don’t snack on *fugu,* the Japanese delicacy that can poison you if the cook isn’t careful about preparing it. Please? And don’t participate in a séance where the medium summons the spirits of psychotic ancestors or diabolical celebrities with whom you imagine it might be interesting to converse. Got that? I understand you might be in the mood for high adventure and out-of-the-ordinary escapades. And that will be fine and healthy as long as you also exert a modicum of caution and discernment.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

I suggest that you pat yourself on the back with both hands as you sing your own praises and admire your own willful beauty in three mirrors simultaneously. You have won stirring victories over not just your own personal version of the devil, but also over your own inertia and sadness. From what I can determine, you have corralled what remains of the forces of darkness into a comfy holding cell, sealing off those forces from your future. They won’t bother you for a very long time, maybe never again. Right now you would benefit from a sabbatical -- a vacation from all this high-powered character-building. May I suggest you pay a restorative visit to the Land of Sweet Nonsense?
