Beware the Bird IF YOU haven’t heard of Bird, you probably will soon. But I’m not talking about our fine feathered friends. If you’ve been to Atlanta lately, you know what I mean: The app-based electric scooter rental service competing with Uber and Lyft as the choice for a short-distance “last mile” travel option. I’d be shocked if you don’t see them soon in Savannah. It seems a matter of time. Over the course of a couple of months, parts of Atlanta have already become flooded with flocks of Birds, littering sidewalks when unused and posing increasing hazards to pedestrians when in use. Bird works like this: You use the app to find the closest parked scooter, usually on a sidewalk or street corner but sometimes more whimsically hidden by the previous customer. You pay a dollar to unlock the Bird, and then 15 cents per per minute to scoot wherever you want to go. And then… you abandon the Bird right there at your stop, to be ridden by the next closest customer who tracks it via the app. The company contracts “Bird chargers” to round up the Birds at the end of the day, paying them a per-scooter fee to use their own electricity to recharge the scooter’s battery and place them back on the streets. On the West Coast, where Bird first got a talon-hold, there is already what’s being


The L.A. Times reports this week that fed-up residents in Santa Monica are waging what the paper calls a “guerrilla war” against Birds, by vandalizing them in increasingly imaginative ways. I personally wouldn’t use a Bird simply because I already know people who’ve had to go to the ER after using them (almost no Bird user wears a helmet). In my experience in Atlanta, the Birds are yet another slap in the face to pedestrians —walking already being a difficult enough way to get around there. I can’t count the times I’ve either almost tripped over one, or several, or been nearly sideswiped by a Bird rider on the sidewalk (they can go up to 20 miles an hour!) And I have seen intoxicated people do some really foolish things on them. I realize we’re all supposed to reflexively embrace new app-based technologies in the modern sharing economy. But in Bird’s case, there is a clear safety hazard, and what seems to be an unethical or even illegal business practice to boot. I asked Michelle Gavin, spokesperson for the City of Savannah, if there are any plans to proactively address the issue. She says there is no concrete plan at the moment, but the City is aware of the issues. “The City is just beginning the conversation about scooters,” Gavin tells me. “While they could possibly help with the ‘last mile’ issue of transportation, they can become a quality of life issue if left unregulated.” In the meantime, keep an eye out for Birds landing near you. CS


Local public schools consistently quash input

Editor, My journey into public school advocacy began during my son’s elementary school years. He attended a school where more than 70% of the student population is living in poverty. Initial observations shocked and concerned me. Disciplinary actions seemed at best, developmentally inappropriate. According to, they have a suspension rate of 7%. Students with disabilities, 18%. Suspensions should be exceedingly rare at the elementary school level. Silent lunches, lost recess, ‘walking the line’, teachers with no classrooms or supplies, and high teacher turnover are

significant concerns and indicative of a systemic problem. The inability for our voices to be recognized or considered is an alarming pattern exhibited by the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System. When I brought my concerns to the principal, then to administration, they dismissed them. They told me the situations I observed were not happening, were necessary for control, or no one else was “complaining” and we were offered administrative transfer. I discovered these practices are normalized within many schools across the county. A group of parents, most of whom have experienced similar obstacles formed Voices for Schools. Since 2015, we have been told there are too few

of us, we don’t represent the “right demographic,” we are lying, we are to blame for the problems that persist, or we are focusing on the wrong things. Email correspondence with board members has shown up in print media almost immediately after being sent and we have been openly criticized from the dais for bringing issues forward. Now there are further attempts to silence us about issues on record. During the August 8 School Board Meeting, changes to district policy titled “Public Participation in Board Meetings” were proposed. The changes would allow the board to limit the number of constituents permitted to address their elected officials during the open meetings.

The discussion amongst board members highlighted the belief that the board meetings should be held to address “board business,” and time spent on constituent concerns may not meet that criteria. Following that logic, we would need to address time spent on reports from the Superintendent, Student Senate, and Teacher Senate. Of course, we won’t do that because like constituent voices, those reports directly inform the business of the board. Recent interest in some significant policy changes makes the timing of this change feels like a brazen attempt to stifle the voices of the community you serve. Jenny McCord

called a “charger culture” of highly competitive contractors. Like any of the new “disruptive” sharing economy technologies such as Uber, Airbnb, etc., it all sounds great on paper. (Indeed, Bird was started in California by an ex-Uber exec.) In this case, disruptive might be the key word. The people who love to use Birds really love them. And the people who hate Birds really hate them. There doesn’t seem to be much room in between. And as happened with Airbnb, it looks like there might be yet another civic fault line for us all to navigate, neighborhood by neighborhood. Charleston, S.C., is going through a battle with the company as we speak. First, Bird made a “pilot program” drop of scooters in downtown Charleston on Aug. 4. But Bird didn’t have a business license to operate, and within 48 hours, they received a cease-and-desist order. The very next day, Bird started another “pilot program” in Mt. Pleasant over the Cooper River. Police there began rounding up Birds for the company to pick up — not the wisest use of public resources. Nashville has also sent the company a cease-and-desist. Bird was also forced out of Louisville, Ky. The main issue with Bird is that the scooters themselves impede public rightsof-way to an often ridiculous extent. How disruptive is “disruptive?” From mid-April to late May, San Francisco’s 311 line fielded an incredible 1,873 scooter-related calls!

Are you #TeamFoxy?



IF THERE is one establishment that is synonymous with Savannah culture and Savannah small business, it is Foxy Loxy Café. This is why it is very upsetting to hear that Foxy Loxy finds itself in trouble with the City in regards to “noise disturbances.” This is due to the arrival of a new neighbor who sees fit to complain to the City about the noise generated by events held in Foxy’s back courtyard — events that end at 10 p.m. at the latest, and have been going on for over six years. Now, these events are threatened, as is the overall health of the business. Some have sought to bolster the case of the complainant by pointing out that they are actually a long-time Savannah resident that has just recently decided to move into this property that they have owned and rented out for many years. This in my view makes it worse, not better. This means that this person potentially knew full and well what kind of activities occur at Foxy Loxy, moved in anyway, and is now seeking to change things more to their liking, to the detriment of an established and cherished local business. In nuisance law that pre-dates the adoption of zoning codes throughout America, there is a concept known as “moving to the nuisance.” Basically, if you know that an activity is ongoing at a location, or that a certain condition exists, you cannot move there and then demand injunctive relief from the government. Your case would be thrown out. One of the most important justifications for the rise of planning and zoning was to reduce conflicts and the use of nuisance law and injunctions as a reactive remedy, and the subsequent jeopardy of property takings. If you keep incompatible uses apart, conflict is avoided, or so the theory goes. But you also make boring, single-use neighborhoods. Mixed-use is more fun, more vibrant, and increasingly an agent of economic development. Ryan Madsen, Professor of Architecture and Urban Design at SCAD, had this to say: “Part of the social contract of living in such a place is co-existing with diversity, activity, business, and busy-ness, and yes, 8 noise and occasional annoyances and

Foxy Loxy has become a Starland area staple, with frequent live music in the courtyard.


inconveniences.” With the right rules in place (including a good noise ordinance), different uses can get along. But as we see in this case, conflicts still arise. In January of this year the new resident reached out to the current President of the Thomas Square Neighborhood Association (TSNA), Clinton Edminster. Clinton says that he listened, read through the City’s noise ordinance, and concluded that Foxy Loxy was not in breach. However, the offended party claims that Clinton basically said to them, “businesses like Foxy Loxy are more important than residents” and hung up. I’ve known Clinton for several years now, and we currently sit on the TSNA Board together. I can’t see him behaving like this. When I put the allegation to him, Clinton responded, “I did tell them that I support mixed-use neighborhoods, and this (activity at Foxy) is part of that.” Some fault Edminster for not doing more, or for not bringing the issue to the Board. However, Melinda Dolle Allen of the Downtown Neighborhood Association (where there’s a lot more mixing of the uses) had this to say: “We (DNA) support the noise ordinance. We have so many events, tours, etc. that if we didn’t it would be insanity. But we don’t really have to ‘get involved’ – it’s the City’s job to enforce. The neighborhood association does not need to take sides.” And yes, the City did address the issue of the noise ordinance, also back in January. A City Marshal with Development Services and a Planner at the Metropolitan Planning Commission (MPC) both cleared Foxy Loxy of any wrongdoing at that time. Foxy also says they engaged the services of a professional sound engineer to measure the decibel levels in the courtyard and at property boundaries. Further, Foxy bought their own decibel meter and began keeping a log of readings during events in the courtyard. Case closed? Not so fast. Now there is a new City Marshal on the case (full disclosure: one that I have my own unpleasant history with), and Foxy owner Jen Jenkins finds herself pulled into a new round of meetings with City staff. Former TSNA president Virginia Mobley has stated in a public forum that she was contacted by “someone outside the neighborhood to talk to the resident’s family.” Soon after, it was decided that Foxy needed a second meeting with the City.

So, to be very clear, one City Marshal looked at the situation and decided there was no violation. Then, a different City Marshal seemingly was recruited, looked at the same situation, and decided that there is a violation. This is a problem. This sounds like favoritism, selective enforcement, and perhaps double jeopardy. Additionally, at one of these meetings, Jenkins said that the new City Marshal on the case repeatedly made comments such as, “Well, I guess you just don’t care about your neighbors.” Let’s be very clear — it is not a City official’s job to empathize with anyone, or to make things personal. It is their job to fairly and consistently enforce ordinances.

Do I feel empathy for someone that is bothered by the noise and activity of a business next to their home? I do, but empathy is not the basis by which we adjudicate competing interests in a mixed-use district. Businesses should be able to operate without fear of interference from the City if they are following ordinances – which should be clear enough that the business can figure it out for themselves. Foxy Loxy thought they were in compliance. City staff confirmed this. Businesses, small businesses especially, do not need the added uncertainty and worry of the laws being applied selectively. Since many seem to share my skepticism in regards to the City’s fair application of

its code, we now have what harkens back to a medieval Trial by Compurgation. But rather than blood oaths being sworn on a misty moor in support of the accused, we have a petition in support of Foxy Loxy being passed around Facebook, which at the time of this writing has almost 2,500 signatures. This isn’t the way it’s supposed to work. We need clear laws and consistent, fair enforcement. City staff that are seemingly “on-call” for certain citizens, who make a habit of selective enforcement, and who make things personal need to be chastised and re-trained, or let go. CS





‘Power in numbers’: One Hundred Miles presents community conversation BY RACHAEL FLORA

THIS Friday, get inspired to take action for our coastline. One Hundred Miles hosts activist and artist Mary Edna Fraser, whose photography captures the affects of climate change. (For more on Fraser’s art, turn to page 23.) Catherine Ridley is the Vice President of Education and Communications of One Hundred Miles. We caught up with her last week. Tell me about One Hundred Miles. Catherine Ridley: One Hundred Miles is a coastal conservation organization. We try to affect change through advocacy and education. What we’re trying to do is broaden the tent of what it means to be a conservationist. Everyone has a role to play. We want as many people to join forces as possible. That’s true whether you’re a biologist, community advocate, or educator, but equally true if you’re a painter or sculptor or storyteller. There’s a place for all of us in that big tent. That belief is at the heart of all our education programs we do across our coast, from Savannah to St. Mary’s.


How did the Nature and the Arts program come about?


Nature in the Arts came about in 2016 as a way to share the stories of these inspiring artists. We have such a tremendous history of art in Savannah, and we want to hold them up and encourage others to follow their model. We recognize artists have relied on the natural world for generations as their muse and inspiration. Our programs are designed to really help people discover their own coastal story through the lens of nature. We’ve done photography workshops and creative writing and potter,y just everything trying to get people to think about that side of their brain and what they care about the coast and how they share what’s important to them. Simultaneously, one of the artists we respect and love is Mary Edna Fraser. She’s a phenomenal person and we honored her as part of our first One Hundred Miles 100, an annual list of people affecting change for our coast. She’s not just a tremendously talented artist, she’s a wonderful person. We wanted to find a program for her. We know our communities are ready to have

Fraser has also authored several books on climate change. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ARTIST.

We try to affect change through advocacy and education. What we’re trying to do is broaden the tent of what it means to be a conservationist. Everyone has a role to play. a conversation about the effects of climate change, and we’re doing that through our lecture series. Why is it important to present information about the effects of climate

change? It’s important as we see sea levels rising and storm intensity increasing — we as citizens don’t know how to join that conversation. I think we’ve definitely had


opportunities to have the researchers come in and present this data. Sometimes people respond to that, sometimes they don’t. They’re holding onto stories the way they remember from their childhood. They’re able to see this demonstrable and irrefutable proof—this is what our coastline looked like 20 years ago, 50 years ago, and today. It’s hard to explain that away. Again, [Mary Edna] has had literally a bird’s-eye view to these changes. I think that’s something that’s really exciting. As people start to see these pictures, they start to see issues happening in their backyards. With coastal flooding, you’re trudging to work and driving through water. They’re all pieces of the bigger puzzle that starts to change public perception. Mary Edna’s art, in this case, is one tool towards shaking that perception. It takes all of us. There’s not one tool that’s going to reach everyone, but collectively at the end, if we’re all raising our voices, if we’re all using our passions to share our story, there’s power in numbers. At the end, that’s what Nature in the Arts is all about. Hopefully, this conversation may inspire some people to think about the issue of climate change differently and also inspire others to think about what talents they have and share their beliefs and passion for our coast.

How can someone get involved with One Hundred Miles? We have a lot of programs going on. There are always opportunities to get involved as advocates and issues affecting our coast, and not just Chatham County. Up and down our coast there are people caring about different islands, and there are lots of different proposals on the table. We’re working on a wealth of issues on the federal, local, and state levels. I manage our education side. Under education, we have monthly programs for people to build an encyclopedia of knowledge about or coast and wildlife and also experience the coast. To protect something, you have to love it, and to love something, you have to have had those formative experiences in nature. CS

Street Medicine is already an international movement but, sadly one Savannah — more importantly Chatham County who manages health for the community — ignores. Health care must become part of the community building, elevating it to a higher level, which is the ultimate purpose of the discipline in the first place. The helping professions -- social work, clergy, teachers, lawyers -- follow suit. Jesus himself healed the sick first before other things follow and the community grows stronger as individuals grow healthier. With the infusion of health, community building’s foundation grows into a stronger base as the most basic of ills are addressed enabling stronger decision making and purpose. Social work, clergy, teachers, lawyers expand the base of personal freedom through decision making empowerment. The community continues to elevate. In the ultimate of ironies, housing options come last. It’s only after the homeless person is strong enough in recovery of whatever the ails, has a strong enough support system in place, is capable of contemplating the management of housing, a most arduous task under the best of circumstances as things break, fall apart, neighborhood tensions mount, societal norms are enforced and Governmental regulation overwhelm.

The Chatham County Police Department is continuing its investigation into an early morning double homicide on Wilmington Island involving a Savannah Police officer and his wife. “Police were called to a home on Palmetto Bay Cove around 6:30 a.m. Monday, August 13, 2018,” police report. “Upon arrival, they found a deceased male inside a home. Next door, they found a deceased female. Both victims appeared to have been stabbed,” police say. The victims have been identified as a Savannah Police Department officer and his wife. The names of the victims are currently being withheld pending notification of next of kin. “While at the scene, police confronted a 16 year old juvenile who resided with the victims, and is believed to be a relative of the female victim.

NEWS & OPINION NEWS OF THE WEIRD Armed thieves in New Delhi, India, left a craftsman deep in debt after they made off with 500 pounds of wigs and raw hair worth more than $20,000 on July 27, according to the Associated Press. “People think wigs are cheap, but they cost a fortune to make,” wig-maker Jahangir Hussain said. In fact, he had borrowed more than $17,000 to buy hair last month from South Indian wholesalers. India exports wigs and hair extensions to the tune of $300 million a year; much of the raw materials are collected at Hindu temples where people shave their heads as a religious sacrifice, a practice called tonsuring.

out, yelling, “Away from me, Satan!” and grabbed a knife from the kitchen, which he used to threaten restaurant staff. Carlton Henderson, 54, of Cave Creek, Arizona, struggled with workers but eventually fell unconscious and was transported to Mount Sinai St. Luke’s Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, the New York Post reported. Authorities don’t know (1) why and how he entered the freezer and (2) why he died, but they did determine he was charged last year with two 1988 cold-case murders in Boston. He had been released on bail the week before the freezer incident and was scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 14.

The (Im)perfect Seatmate


Chicago cellist Jingjing Hu, a student at the DePaul University School of Music, found herself being escorted off an American Airlines flight on Aug. 2 after trying to return to Chicago from Miami with her instrument. Hu paid in advance for an extra seat for her cello, worth almost $30,000 and housed in a hard case, and had no trouble on her flight from Chicago to Miami, where she participated in a music festival. But on her return trip, after boarding the Boeing 737 and settling herself and her cello into their seats, a flight attendant approached her and told her she would have to leave the plane because the aircraft was too small for her instrument. Hu was booked on a flight the next day on a 767. American blamed the incident on a “miscommunication,” according to WBBM TV, but Hu’s husband, Jay Tang, said, “I don’t think we did anything wrong here, and I think the way they handled it was humiliating.”


The list of offenses was long when Franklyn Williams, 32, appeared in Cuyahoga County (Ohio) Common Pleas Court on July 31 to be sentenced for aggravated robbery, kidnapping, theft, misuse of credit cards and more -- including cutting off his ankle bracelet late last year and fleeing to Nebraska, where he claimed he was hit over the head and lost his memory. But it was his courtroom behavior that spurred Judge John Russo to call for an extreme measure: During the hearing, Williams would not stop talking, even interrupting his own lawyers repeatedly over about 30 minutes. Finally, Russo ordered deputies to tape the defendant’s mouth shut, reported FOX 8 in Cleveland. Williams continued to talk until deputies applied more tape, and finally Russo sentenced him to 24 years in prison.

West Valley City, Utah, has a malodorous mystery on its hands. The community stinks, and for the past year, officials have been fielding complaints about the smell, which city communications director Sam Johnson described as “a musty sewer smell ... that you can smell in certain parts of the city stronger,” according to FOX 13. The city has now launched a campaign recruiting residents to help pinpoint the source of the odor: “If you smell something, say something.” They’re hoping more complaints will spur Salt Lake County and Utah’s Department of Environmental Quality to investigate and take action.

Least Competent Criminal

The Baltimore Sun reported that a driver’s license examiner in Glen Burnie, Maryland, got a whiff of something when she approached a car about to be used in a driving test. She called Maryland State Police, who found Reginald D. Wooding Jr., 22, of Baltimore waiting in his mother’s car to take his test. Wooding was in possession of marijuana, a scale, more than $15,000 in suspected drug-related money and a 9mm Glock handgun with a loaded 30-round magazine.

Compelling Explanation

In Bluffton, South Carolina, 32-yearold Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw informed police officers she was a former cheerleader, sorority girl, good student and National Honor Society member after they pulled her over at 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 4 for running a stop sign at 30 mph over the speed limit. According to The Island Packet, she also told officers she shouldn’t be arrested because she’s a “very clean, thoroughbred, white girl.” She said she’d had only two glasses of wine, but then allowed, “I mean, I was celebrating my birthday.” Police arrested her anyway and booked her into the Beaufort County Detention Center.

Bright Idea!

Nerd Alert

Apparently the unofficial “uniform” for Bay Area techies and capital investors is a vest, so the Japanese company Uniqlo is cashing in with a vest vending machine at the San Francisco International Airport. The airport’s public information officer, Doug Yakel, says the machine is no joke; it earns $10,000 a month on average. Do the math: At $49.90 apiece, the company is selling about 200 of its ultra-light down vests each month. “This is the first time we’ve had clothing available for sale from a vending machine, which we thought was very unique,” Yakel told Business Insider.

Airport security at Berlin’s Schonefeld Airport evacuated a terminal on Aug. 7 after spotting “suspicious content in a luggage piece” during a routine X-ray, according to CNN. The bag’s unnamed owner was summoned, but he was reluctant to identify the mysterious items, calling them just “technical stuff.” After an hourlong investigation involving the bomb squad, the 31-year-old traveler admitted to federal police that the items were sex toys, including a vibrator, he had brought along for his girlfriend. He was allowed to proceed with his trip, and the terminal reopened. CS

Cedric Burnside brings raucous, rhythmic Mississippi Hill Country blues to the Jinx BY JIM MOREKIS


CEDRIC BURNSIDE is blues royalty. His grandfather R.L. Burnside — who Cedric simply calls “Big Daddy” — is one of the great icons of Mississippi blues. Cedric’s father, Calvin Jackson, is among the ranks of the great blues drummers of all time. As a teenager, Cedric became a part of his extended family’s music-making adventures, which included collaborations with North Mississippi legends like Junior Kimbrough and Jessie Mae Hemphill. Cedric would eventually go from unofficial member of Burnside’s band to replacing his father on drums. Big Daddy Burnside passed away in 2005, and Mr. Jackson followed ten years later. Now 39, Cedric carries on the family name with his own brand of rollicking Mississippi Hill Country blues. As you might expect given his father’s proclivities, Cedric’s first musical love was the drums. While he has built his career mostly as a singing drummer, Cedric — a skilled blues guitarist in his own right — is stepping out front on this tour, in support of an excellent new album, Benton County Relic, due out Sept. 14. He tells us that at this week’s must-see gig at The Jinx, he’ll sing behind the drum kit for a few songs, then step out front and 16 bless us by accompanying his original

A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum flies into Tybee Post Comedy features Tybee-centric cast



WITH well-known local performer Les Taylor leading the all-star cast, A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum is the biggest production from the Tybee Arts Association since their production of Wizard of Oz in 2011. “This play is something I’ve wanted to do for over 40 years … it’s one of the funniest musicals ever written,” says director Renee DeRossett. “This is a dream cast for me. We have 17 actors and everyone is awesome,” says DeRossett. A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to Forum is set in a neighborhood in ancient Rome. The house of Sertex is in the center where wife Domina, and son Hero resides with several slaves. Amongst the slaves are head slave Hysterium and main character Pseudolous. Pseudolous wants to obtain his freedom by any means necessary — and thus the story begins. Crafty Pseudolous comes up with a plan to help Hysterium win over the love of Phillia, one of the courtesans in the House of Lycus, in exchange for his freedom. The plan becomes unhinged after a number of plot twists, mistaken identities, and a showgirl or two. “This musical combines ancient 2000-year-old comedy from Plautus with classic vaudeville, and it’s a hilariously beautiful show,” says DeRossett.


A Funny Thing will show two consecutive weekends with a matinee show on Sunday the 19. “In addition to the very talented Les Taylor playing the lead as Pseudolous, we have some of Tybee’s most notable, well known, and prominent citizens in our cast,” says DeRossett. For example, Tybee City Council member Monty Parks plays the part of Capt. Miles Gloriosis. “And Mr. Keith Gay, who owns Tybee Beach Vacation Rentals and is the Vice President of the Tybee Post Theater board of directors, plays the part of Senex,” she says. “Keith Gay performed with several musical groups in his younger days and in recent years has graced the Tybee Post Theater stage several times singing solo, and even performing with his two very tal- Local theatre veteran Les Taylor, above right, heads the large cast. ented sons in several events since opening the Post Theater doors — three years ago next month,” says DeRossett. And one of “the most exciting finds in this production and the youngest member of our cast, making her debut on our stage as our ingenue, Phillia, is the extremely talented Georgia Gillen,” says DeRossett. “She also happens to be the daughter of our new city manager, Sean Gillen.” CS


Tybee Post Theater, 10 Van Horne Dr. Fri-Sat. Aug 17-18, 7:30 pm; Sun. Aug. 19, 3 pm; Fri-Sat. Aug. 24-25, 7:30 pm. Tickets $20

Sea Islands of Georgia, 48” x 144”, batik on silk. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE ARTIST

Mary Edna Fraser brings batiks on silk to Savannah BY RACHAEL FLORA

CHARLESTON-BASED artist Mary Edna Fraser comes to One Hundred Miles this Friday to display her artwork and help raise awareness about change. Fraser’s story is anything but typical— she flies her family’s vintage airplane over Fraser at work.

Fraser’s biggest show, though, was “Aer“I chose [batik on silk] because it’s atmo- ial Inspirations” at the Smithsonian Air spheric, like looking out of the plane, and I and Space Museum in 1994. can roll it up and take it with me,” explains “That’s the biggest audience in the Fraser. world, ever,” she says. “When I was a young “I always loved photography and I loved woman, I met Orrin Pilkey [Professor being in my family’s plane,” Fraser says. Emeritus of Earth and Ocean Sciences at “It’s a 1946 air coupe. I actually began my Duke University], and he did a book called real life work in Savannah flying with my ‘The Beaches are Moving,’ and I asked hid brother, and a local photographer, Nancy his words could be put with my art. That Heffernan, told me I could make a living was 1994 and the beginning of our work looking out of airplanes and photographtogether.” ing them and then making art from the That relationship with Pilkey yielded photographs. It was then that I coined the another book, “Global Climate Change,” name ‘Islands from the Sky.’” with Duke University Press. That body of work became SCAD’s first “Art can activate people to be involved exhibition in 1981. and interact with climate change,” Fra“We hung it in a gymnasium that was ser says. “[Climate change] is a daunting turned into a library and we hung silks subject at best, and it’s a tragic subject as well. But like when people are alcoholics, from the rafters,” Fraser recalls.

you can’t just pretend it doesn’t exist. It’s the elephant in the room, affecting all our coastal cities. I think it’s really important to talk about it and work with it.” During her artist talk at One Hundred Miles, Fraser will show the silks she uses to teach about climate change, but she’ll also show some expectations of what our area will look like in the years 2035, 2048, 2050, and 2100. “It’s pretty grim,” she admits. “Every year because of sea level rise, it just gets a little bit deeper. For instance, in 2050, Tybee on the north end will still be above sea level, but Little Tybee will not be. On LaRoche Avenue, the water will be up to that.” Fraser has always been passionate about preserving our coastline and raising awareness about climate change.

“If someone says it’s fake news and it’s not real, I’d say, ‘Well, you should go to the Union of Concerned Scientists and look at the science, the reality of it yourself,’” Fraser says. “That’s a big part. What I share a lot is how to be an environmental activist and how to raise consciousness and get your legislators to listen to you. When [Pilkey and I] wrote our book in 2011, not many people believed in climate change. Now, 75% of Americans believe. A lot of it is the educational process.” CS

Tybee spot offers breakfast, coffee, treats, and smoothies

PART OF Tybee Island’s allure, to both locals and visitors, is its qualities that have withstood the test of time against its potential to become saturated with highrise condos and chain businesses. With that being said, it is a rare occasion that a new place pops up on Tybee, and in many cases it is a familiar Tybee business that expands its resume. As of this summer, Beachview Bed and Breakfast now falls into that category, opening their very own coffee, juice, and breakfast shop. Beachview Bed and Breakfast is located on the south end of the Island, and has been a Tybee staple for some time. Owners

to come up with their always changing menu,” explains Karen. Let’s start with coffee, which is in my opinion the most important part of any morning. After trying several coffee roasters, Beachview settled on Rev Coffee from Smyrna, Georgia. Karen tells me: “We really loved Nick, the owner of Rev Coffee, and his personality and coffee.” The flavor of the coffee is smooth and subtle, a great canvas for any sugary or creamy accompaniment that may get stirred in.  The “Beachview Turtle is our signature coffee drink and it’s served either hot or cold,” Karen explains. I went for the cold version because the morning I visited was a typical toasty Tybee day. Two shots of fresh brewed

espresso are layered in a tall glass with milk, hazelnut syrup, caramel, chocolate, and whipped cream. Turtle could not have been a more fitting name. The drink is sweet, almost tricking the palate into thinking you are drinking a milkshake, but not before your tongue is tickled by the slightly bitter tinge of roasted espresso. The restaurant offers several other specialty coffee drinks, including a caramel macchiato, a white mocha, and something dubbed The Don, which is served with steamed milk and a dark chocolate syrup. For those a little more traditional in their coffee selection, drip coffee or a French press is available. The espresso options are just as plentiful, ranging from an americano to a Cuban, which may be my



Frank and Karen Kelly expanded the bed and breakfast in 2015 by opening a wedding venue next door. After operating the venue for sometime, Frank and Kelly decided to switch gears and focus their energy on coffee and juice— an easy model considering the team’s love of coffee and Karen’s love of juice, Karen tells me. The storefront itself epitomizes Tybee Island—rustic wood walls, a white washed wood ceiling, seashell chandeliers, and wall to wall windows for that beachside airy feeling. Walking in, you immediately take in everything our tourists love about our quaint and rarely-changing Tybee Island. When it comes to the menu, “the entire team spent time researching coffee shops, small cafes, and juice bars, and they just started throwing different items together

favorite way to drink espresso. A Cuban is a double shot of espresso served with raw sugar at the bottom. You stir in the hot shot, which creates a warm pungently sweet shot of rich, dark coffee. Equally as delicious is the store’s robust selection of fresh fruit smoothies. Every single ingredient is fresh, which makes the price of only $6 unbelievable. The Berry Chill smoothie was my first choice because the list of ingredients featured every ingredient that is right about summer. Fresh bright blueberries are layered with syrupy sweet pineapple, tangy thick yogurt, and refreshing coconut water. The emulsion is almost too beautiful to drink, and goes down quickly due to the balanced yet quenching and light flavor.  26 The Blueberry Kiwi smoothie also

features blueberries, but has the addition of kiwi, almond milk, and honey— extremely unique pairings that give the smoothie a heartier and creamier texture and taste. On the healthier side, although I am not sure you can get much more beneficial than what is already offered, is the Mango Kale Smoothie.  The lightest of them all, the Skinny, is blended with cucumber, spinach, mint, and orange juice -- a smoothie that would be easy to drink beachside bearing the summer warmth.  Although named Java and Juice, Beachview offers more than just good coffee and refreshing smoothies. Karen tells me “all baked goods are made in house” and “she does the majority of baking.” You read that right: The menu includes fresh moist baked breakfast treats ranging

from muffins to French toast. Karen also mentions The Nest, which is a dish that was created “one day when we [Beachview] had some extra ingredients.” It is easily the most unique item offered at the quaint restaurant. Served in its own individual dish, shredded hash browns, eggs, and ham are baked together, which are essentially all of my favorite breakfast ingredients. You will find little salty bites of ham floating amongst tender and fluffy eggs, and the bottom adds a bit of texture with crispy hashbrowns.  “Our Swiss Eggs have been a been a Beachview Bed and Breakfast favorite and has quickly become a Java Juice favorite as well,” Karen boasts. Like the Nest, this breakfast dish is prepared and served in its own individualized dish and is created with a combination of

breakfast meat, cheese, and eggs. On the more classic side of bed and breakfast food offerings is the Oscar Quiche, but the preparation is in no way classic. The order comes as a single slice of cloud-like egg quiche; floating amongst the robust wedge is a bounty of wilted vegetables of spinach, carrots, peppers, onions, and more. As to be expected, the bottom is a tender flaky pastry crust that is buttery without being soggy. The bold quantity of ingredients is what makes this version far from classic. CS Beachview Java and Juice is at 1701 Butler Ave., Tybee Island. They are open seven days a week, and you can get your fix anytime from from 7:30 am till 1:30 pm.

OOO When was the last time that Spike Lee directed a movie that mattered? And by “mattered,” I mean when was the last time he helmed a film that was seen by audiences, championed by critics, and discussed by the establishment? For my money, the rhyme-and-reason endeavor Chi-raq should have been that film – it made my own 10 Best list for 2015, but it earned less than $3 million at the box office and hit Blu-ray a mere seven weeks after debuting theatrically. No, one would have to go all the way back to 2006’s Inside Man to find a Spike Lee Joint that was viewed by more than just a handful of his strictest devotees. With that in mind, here’s hoping that BlacKkKlansman receives the following it deserves. Loosely based on a true story, it centers on Ron Stallworth (John David Washington, Denzel’s son), who during the 1970s was a rookie — and the first AfricanAmerican officer — with the police department in Colorado Springs. Desperately wanting to become an undercover officer, he gets his wish when he’s assigned to attend a speech by Stokely Carmichael and ascertain whether the former Black Panther’s call for a revolution should raise any concerns. Ron reports back that Carmichael’s fiery rhetoric was merely grandstanding, an opinion backed by two white colleagues also involved with the assignment, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) and Jimmy Creek (Michael Joseph Buscemi, Steve’s lookalike brother). Ron’s next task is one he roots out himself, and one he feels might lead to something more dangerous than mere rhetoric. Answering a newspaper ad placed by the local Ku Klux Klan chapter, Ron begins a dialogue by passing himself off as a white man who hates blacks, Jews and everyone else destroying white America. Ron’s duplicity is successful enough that he lands a meeting with the local Klan yahoos, but since he’s the wrong skin color, he sends Flip to serve as his visual counterpart for in-person meetings while he continues to handle phone duties. His infiltration is so successful that he ends up engaging in a series of telephone chats with no less than David Duke (cue the unexpected though effective casting of Topher Grace), the KKK head who in recent times is better known as Trump’s greatest cheerleader and kindred spirit. The humor in BlacKkKlansman is occasionally overdone, and yet it never dilutes the suspense generated by the overarching fear that the lives of Ron and Flip are in peril every moment of every day. Some will complain that the Klan members and their enablers are painted in strokes that are far too broad, but I say nonsense. The dialogue spoken by the racist characters is often atrocious and painful to the

Adam Driver and John David Washington star in BlackKlansman

ears, but that’s to be expected when dealing with Americans as illiterate, insidious and evil as the ones on parade throughout this picture. Of course, it’s not as if right-wing reactionaries will be found anywhere near this film – like most important movies of recent vintage (such as last year’s The Post), it’s strictly a speaking-to-the-choir effort, unlikely to change the dim minds of those who see “fake news” conspiracies everywhere.


OO The latest shark flick hoping to take a sizable chunk out of box office revenues, The Meg is largely everything you would expect from a movie in which Jason Statham elects to deliver an upper cut to Mother Nature. It’s ridiculous to compare any movie of this ilk to the masterpiece that is Jaws, yet the movie is ballsy enough to openly invite such comparisons. Pippin the pooch, the Kintner kid, the tracking devices (now electronic gizmos instead of big ole barrels, because progress!) – they’re all here in barely disguised facsimiles. All that’s missing is Robert Shaw raking his fingernails across a blackboard – then again, the mere presence of Rainn Wilson will strike many as a nailsacross-the-blackboard equivalent, so there’s that. Wilson plays the gazillionaire funding an underwater science facility named Mana One and located off the coast of China. When one of the facility’s submersibles gets attacked by something enormous deep deep deep down in the Pacific Ocean, it’s decided that Jonas Taylor (Statham), a former rescue diver now drowning himself in bottles of beer, should be the man to save the stranded crew members – one of

whom just happens to be his ex-wife (Jessica McNamee). Taylor left the biz after his encounter with a gigantic “something,” so he’s not surprised when he discovers that the perpetrator behind this submersible sabotage happens to be the same “something” – specifically, a 70-foot prehistoric shark whose scientific moniker is Carcharocles Megalodon. The rescue mission is (mostly) a success, but rather than remain near the ocean floor, the Meg decides to journey closer to the surface, where it proceeds to not only terrorize the Mana One employees but, eventually, unsuspecting beachgoers. Adapted from Steve Alten’s 1997 book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror, The Meg offers a few interesting developments in its narrative, and it’s nice to see Statham once again headlining the sort of picture that automatically gets handed to Dwayne Johnson these days. But even beyond its PG-13 bloodlessness, the movie is surprisingly subdued in its pacing, its characterizations, and its go-for-broke sensibilities. That’s largely due to director Jon Turteltaub, who has spent a career making popular pablum, bland hits that exhibit little style or wit (Phenomenon, National Treasure and its sequel, etc.). Say what you will about director Renny Harlin, but he at least kept his dopey shark film, Deep Blue Sea, moving at mach speed. The Meg isn’t any worse than Deep Blue Sea, but it’s certainly more toothless. Luckily, the scrappy Statham is on hand to provide it with some bite.

“The prettier the garden, the dirtier the hands of the gardener,” writes aphorist B. E. Barnes. That’ll be especially applicable to you in the coming weeks. You’ll have extra potential to create and foster beauty, and any beauty you produce will generate practical benefits for you and those you care about. But for best results, you’ll have to expend more effort than maybe you thought you should. It might feel more like work than play -- even though it will ultimately enhance your ability to play.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Author and theologian Thomas Merton thought that the most debilitating human temptation is to settle for too little; to live a comfortable life rather than an interesting one. I wouldn’t say that’s always true about you, Taurus. But I do suspect that in the coming weeks, a tendency to settle for less could be the single most devitalizing temptation you’ll be susceptible to. That’s why I encourage you to resist the appeal to accept a smaller blessing or punier adventure than you deserve. Hold out for the best and brightest.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)


“I’ve learned quite a lot, over the years, by avoiding what I was supposed to be learning.” So says the wise and well-educated novelist Margaret Atwood. Judging by your current astrological omens, I think this is an excellent clue for you to contemplate right now. What do you think? Have you been half-avoiding any teaching that you or someone else thinks you’re “supposed” to be learning? If so, I suggest you avoid it even stronger. Avoid it with cheerful rebelliousness. Doing so may lead you to what you *really* need to learn about next.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Sometimes you make it difficult for me to reach you. You act like you’re listening but you’re not really listening. You semiconsciously decide that you don’t want to be influenced by anyone except yourself. When you lock me out like that, I become

a bit dumb. My advice isn’t as good or helpful. The magic between us languishes. Please don’t do that to me now. And don’t do it to anyone who cares about you. I realize that you may need to protect yourself from people who aren’t sufficiently careful with you. But your true allies have important influences to offer, and I think you’ll be wise to open yourself to them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

“Whoever does not visit Paris regularly will never really be elegant,” wrote French author Honoré de Balzac. I think that’s an exaggeration, but it does trigger a worthwhile meditation. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you’re in a phase of your cycle when you have maximum power to raise your appreciation of elegance, understand how it could beautify your soul, and add more of it to your repertoire. So here are your homework meditations: What does elegance mean to you? Why might it be valuable to cultivate elegance, not just to enhance your self-presentation, but also to upgrade your relationship with your deep self? (P.S.: Fashion designer Christian Dior said, “Elegance must be the right combination of distinction, naturalness, care, and simplicity.”)

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Many of us imagine medieval Europe to have been drab and dreary. But historian Jacques Le Goff tells us that the people of that age adored luminous hues: “big jewels inserted into book-bindings, glowing gold objects, brightly painted sculpture, paintings covering the walls of churches, and the colored magic of stained glass.” Maybe you’ll be inspired by this revelation, Virgo. I hope so. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you can activate sleeping wisdom and awaken dormant energy by treating your eyes to lots of vivid reds, greens, yellows, blues, browns, oranges, purples, golds, blacks, coppers, and pinks.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

An astrologer on Tumblr named Sebas-

tian says this about your sign: “Libras can be boring people when they don’t trust you enough to fully reveal themselves. But they can be just as exciting as any fire sign and just as weird as any Aquarius and just as talkative as a Gemini and just as empathetic as a Pisces. Really, Librans are some of the most eccentric people you’ll ever meet, but you might not know it unless they trust you enough to take their masks off around you.” Spurred by Sebastian’s analysis, here’s my advice to you: I hope you’ll spend a lot of time with people you trust in the coming weeks, because for the sake of your mental and physical and spiritual health, you’ll need to express your full eccentricity. (Sebastian’s at

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

A blogger who calls herself Wistful Giselle has named the phenomena that make her “believe in magic.” They include the following: “illuminated dust in the air; the moments when a seedling sprouts; the intelligence gazing back at me from a crow’s eyes; being awaken by the early morning sun; the energy of storms; old buildings overgrown with plants; the ever-changing grey green blue moods of the sea; the shimmering moon on a cool, clear night.” I invite you to compile your own list, Scorpio. You’re entering a time when you will be the beneficiary of magic in direct proportion to how much you believe in and are alert for magic. Why not go for the maximum?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Since 1969, eight-foot-two-inch-tall Big Bird has been the star of the kids’ TV show *Sesame Street*. He’s a yellow bird puppet who can talk, write poetry, dance, and roller skate. In the early years of the show, our hero had a good friend who no one else saw or believed in: Mr. Snuffleupagus. After 17 years, there came a happy day when everyone else in the Sesame Street neighborhood realized that Snuffy was indeed real, not just a figment of Big Bird’s imagination. I’m foreseeing a comparable event in your life sometime soon, Sagittar-

ius. You’ll finally be able to share a secret truth or private pleasure or unappreciated asset.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Activist and author Simone de Beauvoir was one of those Capricorns whose lust for life was both lush and intricate. “I am awfully greedy,” she wrote. “I want to be a woman and to be a man, to have many friends and to have loneliness, to work much and write good books, to travel and enjoy myself, to be selfish and to be unselfish.” Even if your longings are not always as lavish and ravenous as hers, Capricorn, you now have license to explore the mysterious state she described. I dare you to find out how voracious you can be if you grant yourself permission.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

According to my reading of the astrological omens, the coming weeks will be prime time to vividly express your appreciation for and understanding of the people you care about most. I urge you to show them why you love them. Reveal the depths of your insights about their true beauty. Make it clear how their presence in your life has had a beneficent or healing influence on you. And if you really want to get dramatic, you could take them to an inspiring outdoor spot and sing them a tender song or two.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

In her book *Yarn: Remembering the Way Home*, Piscean knitter Kyoko Mori writes, “The folklore among knitters is that everything handmade should have at least one mistake so an evil sprit will not become trapped in the maze of perfect stitches.” The idea is that the mistake “is a crack left open to let in the light.” Mori goes on to testify about the evil spirit she wants to be free of. “It’s that little voice in my head that says, ‘I won’t even try this because it doesn’t come naturally to me and I won’t be very good at it.’” I’ve quoted Mori at length, Pisces, because I think her insights are the exact tonic you need right now.
