WE JUST GOT through a big election season — with a runoff still to go this Tuesday — but rest assured that the campaigns for the City of Savannah elections in 2019 will begin soon enough. Some are clearly already underway. There will be plenty of time for more discussion as the races take shape, but I thought this was as good a time as any to take a birds-eye look at the local picture: • The Breakdown: The balance of City Council roughly breaks down to a thin majority comprising Mayor Eddie DeLoach and Bill Durrence, Julian Miller, and Brian Foster, with Carol Bell and John

While the numbers are indeed much better – homicides in particular are way down – that’s no guarantee that another spike won’t happen next year to throw the election into a tizzy. Dark clouds are on the horizon, in the form of continuing difficulty in retaining Savannah Police officers in the wake of the de-merger of metro police. By one count, SPD is still down nearly 100 officers. The seeming inability for the department to stay competitive on pay and benefits — even after the de-merger, when we were told that morale and efficiency would improve — is bound to have an impact on the crime numbers at some point, possibly sooner rather than later. As for Savannah Fire and Emergency Services, people may not need them as often as they do the police, but when you need them, you really, really need them.

overlooking it. The success of all that pretty much depends on the Savannah River not being engulfed in flames at some point. Indeed, the only “luxury” might be in considering these interests expendable in the case of disaster. God forbid these words should come back to haunt Miller, the rest of Council, and all of us. • Spending Priorities: For a Council that campaigned on public safety, there is more and more of a perception that what really matters to them is easing the way for development interests downtown, and immediately surrounding it. Some of this is unfair criticism. For example, the Arena/Canal District originated many years ago under different Councils and came up for a public vote. But there is a building groundswell of opinion that wonders why more isn’t being

One of the frustrating things about local politics now is the bizarre insistence by many people that there are only two possible choices: Stick with what we have, or go back in time four years to the previous administration. Hall as frequent swing votes. If a desire for change is felt by voters, it’s that group which will likely feel it the most, the first four in particular. The trio of Van Johnson, Estella Shabazz, and Tony Thomas form a counterweight and also often vote as a unit. I sometimes call them the I Told You So Party, since much local politics still involves constantly relitigating the 2015 election, when DeLoach defeated incumbent Mayor Edna Jackson. Johnson and Shabazz were vocal Jackson loyalists. (Thomas only endorsed Jackson after he secured a runoff spot alongside her.) One of the frustrating things about local politics now is the bizarre insistence by many people that there are only two choices: Stick with what we have, or go back in time four years to the previous administration. For some reason the idea of a different direction, separate and distinct from either, still seems novel to many folks. The wild card here of course is whether or not Van Johnson will, as speculated, throw his hat into the ring to run as Mayor. • Public Safety: Mayor DeLoach and many of the newer names on Council mostly owe their seats to campaigning on public safety in the wake of a spike in violent crime that took place over part of the previous administration.

And the news there could have an impact on the election as well. In the wake of the demise of the fire fee, City Manager Rob Hernandez is following through on consolidation of fire services due to lack of funding. Most controversial is the de-commissioning of Marine One, the department’s waterborne response vessel, along with its Engine Company. This is the same unit which lost a firefighter in the line of duty in 2016 on the Savannah River, Michael Curry. The hightech rescue vessel was recently acquired, in 2015 with a federal grant, and was used during that 2016 dock collapse. The budget cuts are provoking unrest in the fire department itself – and firefighters vote too! – but also seem to send a mixed message about Council’s commitment to public safety. There might be sound operational reasons for decommissioning the Marine unit, but the optics – prioritizing money over lives – make for really bad politics. Alderman Miller is particularly on the hot seat, no pun intended. He was quoted as saying Marine One is “a luxury I’m not sure we can afford at this point in time.” There is heavy industry all up and down the Savannah River, with record volume at the Port of Savannah. There are more and more high-profile hotels going up along the river with more and more rooftop bars

spent on overdue infrastructure improvement, since we obviously can find the money for projects catering to visitors. The public seems wary of the idea that the City is both hurting for money — “the cupboard is bare,” as DeLoach said — yet also flush enough to issue bonds for a parking garage at Eastern Wharf and yet more streetscaping for Broughton Street. (No knock on Broughton, but you’d think that’s the only street in town sometimes.) Two controversial SPLOST projects will become physical reality next year for voter approval or disapproval: The Cultural Arts Center is slated to open, and the Arena will officially break ground. Meanwhile, as SPLOST funds rain down on tourist-oriented projects, community centers outside the tourist zone are in danger of shutting down for good, Hudson Hill chief among them. Look for that issue, in particular, to be a hot-button one, and especially if Johnson makes a run for the Mayor’s seat. • City Attorney: The decision – being deliberated as you read this — of who will take the place of retiring City Attorney Brooks Stillwell might be a sleeper issue. If the new City Attorney pick is seen as very pro-development, that could cement any negative public perception that this Mayor and Council majority are in the pockets of development interests. CS

THE VISION for the ambitious – and controversial – Canal District took another step closer to reality last week, as City Council approved a surplus property sale to the developers of an upscale apartment complex there. The 243-unit, $40 million “703 Louisville” development will be “fair market apartments, not student oriented apartments,” said lead architect Patrick Shay, of Gunn Meyerhoff and Shay. The developers say the complex will serve as the link between the proposed pedestrian loop connecting downtown with the new Savannah Arena, which will be south of the apartments, across the canal. It will join an array of high-profile, highdollar complexes popping up all over town, including Starland Village and Spandrel’s 630 Indian Street. Shay told Council that the complex will boast “amenities usually associated with an upscale apartment complex.” Alderman Van Johnson, in whose First District the apartments will be located, questioned the need for more apartments marketed to the relatively affluent. “I’m concerned about the ability of people on normal salaries to live there. Market-rate housing can be quite high and I’m concerned about that, and remain concerned that we don’t have places within the

city core for folks to live,” said Johnson. “Is this a place where your run of the mill alderman can live?” To which Shay responded, “I think the idea is it would be middle-class affordable for sure.” Johnson worried about the likelihood that the rent at the new development would continue to rise far beyond what the average working person in Savannah can afford. “Once this area grows, the fact of the matter is it becomes much more valuable,” he said. To which Shay responded: “I’m empathetic with your concern, but I’m not aware of any rent control program that the City has in place to limit what apartments rent for in the future,” he said. “That might be an opportunity for us,” countered Johnson. The surplus property sale was granted. The 703 Louisville project is the second envisioned for that tract; initially it was intended for student housing. This prompted Mayor Eddie DeLoach to begin an extended conversation about the increasing phenomenon of one developer getting zoning approval for one project with one set of stated goals, then flipping the site to another developer with a different project, but implied City approval for it. “We pass changes in zoning for people to develop property that they’re going to buy. They end up instead of developing it… they turn around and sell it. It wasn’t exactly

City Attorney Brooks Stillwell – marking his final meeting in the post before his retirement – basically said, be careful what you wish for. “You would have to have a zoning hearing on every single development that ever happened in the City of Savannah,” he said. “It would make it very arbitrary on what got developed and what didn’t.”

Stillwell explained that the so-called NewZo comprehensive zoning ordinance, scheduled for a vote in early 2019, is intended to solve the issue of numerous arcane zoning categories. DeLoach humorously answered, “I don’t set around and read zoning maps. I don’t have the time or the patience to do that. I’m depending on the person up there [proposing the development] to be somewhat honest.” In other news, City Council held a first hearing for the 2019 City budget, which will be balanced at $199,943,286. Some late – and election year-friendly — changes included a property tax millage rollback from 13.4 to 13.2, and a general City employee wage increase of 3.5 percent, up from a proposed 3 percent.

Operation Vanilla Gorilla takes down white supremacist drug ring

More than 40 associates of the Ghost Face Gangsters criminal street gang have been indicted on federal charges related to drug trafficking and firearms possession throughout eastern Georgia and beyond the region. A federal grand jury indictment unsealed Nov. 16 in U.S. District Court in Savannah lists the charges against 43 men and women for offenses involving trafficking methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin, said Bobby L. Christine, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia. Federal, state and local agencies cooperated in the investigation dubbed Operation Vanilla Gorilla. “The indictment alleges that the narcotics-trafficking conspiracy began as early as 2015 and continued until the present, operating in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, Emmanuel, Evans, and Tattnall Counties, in the Southern District of Georgia, and elsewhere,” says Christine. “Members of the conspiracy associated with the Ghost Face Gangsters, a violent, white supremacist street gang operated largely from inside prisons, and with other criminal street gangs to aid in the distribution of controlled substances, for protection, and to promote a climate of fear.” Officials say that Operation Vanilla Gorilla represents one of the largest takedowns of Ghost Face Gangsters associates to date, and follows the March 2018 arrests

Just a few of the alleged Ghost Face Gangsters and affiliates arrested in the operation

of 23 gang members in the Northern District of Georgia on federal charges, and multiple arrests in October 2018 on state charges in Spalding County, Ga. Charges against the defendants in Operation Vanilla Gorilla include: • 25 counts alleging the possession of controlled substances with intent to distribute; • 18 counts alleging the unlawful distribution of controlled substances; • 25 counts alleging prohibited persons (drug users and/or felons) in possession of firearms and/or ammunition; • One count alleging the unlawful possession of a prohibited weapon – a sawedoff rifle; • One count alleging the possession of a firearm with an obliterated serial number; • 10 counts alleging the possession of controlled substances, including methamphetamine, heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana, and prescription pills; and, • 2 counts alleging the possession of counterfeit currency.

NEWS & OPINION NEWS OF THE WEIRD The historic Chattaway restaurant in St. Petersburg, Florida, is a welcoming place, but it was the scene of a lot of unexpected late-night activity in early November, according to the Tampa Bay Times. Surveillance video of a Nov. 6 break-in captured an intruder who “spent over an hour just milling around going room to room and eating and drinking,” said manager Amanda Kitto. In the process, he stole chicken wings and beer, along with computer equipment and cash tips. In the midst of their investigation, police were surprised to find yet another nocturnal visitor on tape from the night before: A man riding a bicycle cruised up to the restaurant and slipped in a back gate. After emptying a storage shed of all its contents, he went into the restaurant bathroom and emerged completely naked. Next he can be seen at a restaurant picnic table, digging into the meal he brought with him: Maruchan Instant Lunch ramen noodles. But Kitto said he was so tidy staff wouldn’t have even known he was there had police not been investigating the later incident. “We still don’t know where his pants are,” said server Chad Pearson. Officers identified the man, who is homeless, but the restaurant declined to press charges because he caused no real harm. Police are still looking for the other man.

Latest Religious Messages

Pastor John Lindell of the James River Church in Ozark, Missouri, took the opportunity presented by Halloween to compose a paranormal-themed sermon that warned against fortune-telling, Wicca -- and yoga. According to the Springfield News-Leader, Lindell told parishioners on Oct. 28 that yoga positions were “created with demonic intent to open you up to demonic power because Hinduism is demonic.” He went on: “To say the positions of yoga are no more than exercise are (sic) tantamount to saying water baptism is just aqua aerobics.” Local yoga instructors were not amused, especially when fewer people started showing up to their classes. Instructor Amanda Davis said the pastor doesn’t have a thorough understanding of the practice. “Yoga doesn’t prescribe (sic) to any religion, and I don’t think people understand that, so they get false ideas about it,” she said. “It’s ignorant.”

Girl Fight!

A lawsuit filed in federal court in Dallas on Nov. 9 seeks up to $1 million in damages and accuses American Airlines flight attendant Laura Powers, 56, of assault and battery on her co-worker Kathy Ida Wolfe during an in-flight brawl in June 2016. In her suit, Wolfe claims Powers “maliciously dug her fingernails into my arm, and slammed the door of a beverage cart on my

arm,” and also “grabbed my scarf, choking me, and dragged me in the aisle and in front of the passengers.” The Dallas Morning News reported Wolfe also said she alerted the captain and other flight attendants about the behavior, but American took no action “to ensure my safety.” In response to the suit, originally filed in Tarrant County, the airline and Powers both said they are “not liable because (Wolfe) caused or contributed to cause the harm for which recovery of damages is sought.”

Compelling Explanation

Christopher Greyshock, 57, of West Milford, New Jersey, used the old disappointed football fan excuse to explain how things went wrong after he was involved in a traffic accident in Wayne on Nov. 11 that injured two people: “I drank too much because the Jets suck.” According to News12, as first responders were attending to the injured, Greyshock staggered toward them smelling of alcohol. A field sobriety test confirmed Greyshock was inebriated, and he was arrested. On the front seat of his car were a bottle of bourbon and marijuana. Buddy, there’s always next year.

Rush, who holds 40 Guinness records, succeeded on his third try, downing 241 kernels. “It’s a ridiculous talent to have,” Rush admitted to the Chicago Tribune. “I practiced skewering a lot to prepare along with the size of the plate, spreading out the corn and best toothpicks to use.” Rush told the Tribune he got involved in breaking records to promote science, technology, engineering and math education (STEM), saying a lot of kids don’t feel confident about STEM subjects. “If you believe you can get better at something and work hard at it, you can get better at anything,” he explained.

• The Zolotoy Bridge in Vladivostok, Russia, is more than a mile long and opened in 2012, but three years later, inspectors banned pedestrians from crossing it because the walkways were too narrow to be safe. United Press International reports the ban didn’t stop four pedestrians on Nov. 8, who attempted to cross the vehicle-only bridge wearing a yellow cardboard bus costume to disguise themselves.

Police weren’t buying it, though, and pulled them over. • Like many recently untethered people, Kimberly Santleben-Stiteler, 43, wanted to celebrate her divorce with a party, so on Nov. 10, she hosted about 40 people at her father’s farm near Lacoste, Texas, about 25 miles west of San Antonio. The big bang of the party wasn’t the music or the food, though, according to the San Antonio Star-Telegram. Santleben-Stiteler wanted to burn her wedding dress, which “represented a lie,” she said, and not just burn it, blow it up. Her dad and brother-in-law attached exploding targets to the dress, and to really take things up a notch, also rigged it with 20 pounds of Tannerite, the same explosive used in the targets. “We have a friend who is a bomb tech, and he kept saying, ‘That’s really a lot,’” the unbride’s sister told the newspaper. Shooting from 200 yards away, Santleben-Stiteler hit her target on the first shot. “The explosion was huge,” she said. Residents of Medina County heard and felt the explosion as far away as 15 miles. “It was liberating pulling that trigger,” Santleben-Stiteler said. “It was closure for all of us.” CS

MUSIC INTERVIEW

Perpetual Groove serves the song

BY SEAN KELLY

sean@connectsavannah.com

SINCE FORMING in Savannah and relocating to Athens, Perpetual Groove has become something of a household name, at least to live music fans throughout the Southeast. The band has staked its place alongside jam bands like Phish, the Grateful Dead, and moe. as a stellar live act – aided by their incredible improvisational skills. It’s in the studio, though, where the band evolves and really lets the songs shine. The group, which recently launched a Kickstarter to fund their latest LP, is set to play at Two Tides Brewing Company on Nov. 30, where they’ll play the songs fans love and showcase the new material. Ahead of the show, we talked to keyboardist Matt McDonald about the band’s history, the new album, and why the forthcoming studio effort feels like a true evolution.

Army, we met Brock and Adam at an open Tell me a bit about how the band started. How did you guys end up under mic night in Savannah and it just so happened that their drummer and keyboard the jam band umbrella? player were moving on. So it was just a MM: Brock [Butler] and Adam [Perry] met happy coincidence of time. As far as the jam band thing goes, they at SCAD in ’97, I believe. They did Perpethad kind of already built the band around ual Groove locally with a couple guys durthis idea of having parts of improvisaing those years. And then Albert [Suttle] tion around the compositions they were and I both were stationed at Fort Stewart writing. Albert and I kind of stepped into in the Army during that time. Right as we that. When I was in college, I went to some were both getting ready to get out of the

We’re in the final stages of our first fulllength studio album in 10 years, and it’s been very song-oriented. Every second of every song has had a lot of thought and composition and intent. Which is kind of the opposite of the live show, in some ways.

Phish shows and stuff like that, but Albert and I weren’t really “jam band guys.” And I think the same is actually true for Brock and Adam. That moniker just kind of fell in early on. We don’t shy away from it by any stretch of the imagination. We embrace it, but I don’t know that it was with a great intent. We’re in the final stages of our first fulllength studio album in 10 years, and it’s been very song-oriented. Every second of every song has had a lot of thought and composition and intent. Which is kind of the opposite of the live show, in some ways. I think as the years have gone on, we’ve found a spot in the middle where we’re at our strongest. We take writing songs pretty seriously, so we’ve focused as we’ve gotten older on the composition side of it. Then again, at the live shows there’s this symbiotic relationship with the audience where the harder they’re giving it to you, you give it back. That propels itself through the whole show.

INTERVIEW

CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS PAGE

All of our past albums have suffered, like a lot of bands to, to the democratic process. This time we surrendered completely to the producers, and they were able to help provide a clearer path to what the song was asking for... A lot of bands with the same moniker are much more song-oriented and studio oriented than people realize – bands like String Cheese Incident, moe., etc. Is it a challenge to re-work the songs in a live setting? How do you separate the two, especially since songcraft is so important to what you do when making records? MM: A lot of the time, especially once we start to go out and do new songs live, it’s very different but same in the sense that I want the song to guide every decision I make. When it’s natural and we feel like we can stretch out and do something more interesting live, you feel when that’s supposed to happen. When we were younger we tried to force that, because we felt like the audience expected us to jam. Now, it’s not even a discussion. If it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen naturally. And again, that’s kind of letting the song guide you. You can hear that calling a little more clearly when it’s appropriate. Tell me about the new album – you did some crowdfunding for it? MM: We did. We did a Kickstarter last year, and that was fortunately successful. Even before the Kickstarter, there was a long discussion about this full-length. I don’t know this for a fact, but I have a feeling that this could very well be the final full-length. The business and the model, moving forward, is more of these shortform releases. CONNECT SAVANNAH | NOV 28 - DEC 4, 2018

A lot of people are going that way.

14

MM: The majority, even. If you take a look at what The Tallest Man on Earth has done with his most recent EP, he’s released a single every month to get as much out of the EP as he can. We’re going to have some singles that start to trickle out a head of the album release, so we’re essentially going to do the same thing. But as far as dropping a full album at once, I don’t know that we’re going to do that again. So in a lot of ways we’ve been approaching this one as kind of the last time we have a start-to-finish, 40-minute journey.

The reason we did the Kickstarter is because we wanted to do vinyl this time around, knowing that it was our final long release. On this new album, we’ve done something that we’ve never done before – we did months of pre-production and songwriting with a producer and a co-producer. That producer’s name is Jason Kingsland, and he’s worked with everyone from My Morning Jacket to Band of Horses. Tim Friesen, who’s the co-producer, just got done working on a Nas album. All of our past albums have suffered, like a lot of bands to, to the democratic process. This time we surrendered as a band to the completely to the producers, and they were able to help provide a clearer path to what the song was asking for, as opposed to, “Hey, I’ve got this part that I’d like to have on the album” and everyone going, “Yeah, of course. That’s fair.” Now it’s just been the songs in their best form, and having somebody that’s able to take that view from 30,000 feet and not be personally invested. It’s been transformational. If you had to pinpoint where the most evolution has happened as opposed to other releases, where do you think that is? MM: I think surrendering to the producers directly translates to surrendering to the song. And that has been really transformative. Just this summer, the bulk of the recording was done at a place called the Fidelitorium in North Carolina. Yeah, I’ve worked there a bunch and know Mitch Easter well. MM: So I don’t need to tell you, man – the vibes in that place are through the roof. On the second day, our producer texted Mitch and just said, “Rototoms?” Not more than five hours later, Mitch comes walking in with rototoms slung over his shoulder and he’s like, “Nobody’s asked me for this since 1987!” [laughs].

ORDINARY ORDINARY BOYS BOYS pay tribute to the legacy of The Smiths BY SEAN KELLY

sean@connectsavannah.com

THE MUSIC of The Smiths is unique for the very specific impact it has had on fans. Those who follow the band are notoriously loyal and infamously rabid, and the band - collectively and individually - has become legendary in particular since their disbandment in 1987. It’s an incredible thing given the fact that they formed in 1982 and had a relatively short career in terms of output, but their catalog has made a cultural impact like no other and turned Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke, and Mike

Joyce into icons. While calls for the band to reunite in the decades since have gone unanswered, a group of musicians in Miami, Florida, have taken on the task of flying the Smiths flag in place of the legendary Manchester, England, group. Ordinary Boys, led by singer AJ Navarrete, have been making a name for themselves as a leading Smiths and Morrissey tribute since forming in 2011 - after doing a one-off tribute performance at Miami’s legendary Churchill’s Pub. “One of the promoters there does a lot of tribute nights,” Navarrete tells Connect. “One day I said to him, ‘Man, let’s try and do something for The Smiths and

Morrissey. Why not?’ We actually did it on Valentine’s Day in 2011. After that night, there were a couple of promoters in the audience that came up to us and said they wanted to do it in West Palm Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. After a while I started to think to myself, ‘Man, I think we’ve got lightning in a bottle here.’” Several lineup changes took place over the years that followed, but Navarrete says that the lineup they’ve had for the last three years is particularly special. “Not only is everyone a ridiculously huge fan of the music, but we also just have a shit ton of fun doing it on stage,” he says. The band is set to return to Savannah on Dec. 1 after a successful show at The

Jinx in April, and will be bringing along a wealth of beloved Smiths songs and Morrissey solo material as well as top notch musicianship and stunningly faithful vocal performances. When it comes to picking the songs they’ll play in a set, the band unanimously agrees that there are a handful of songs that will always need to be played, no matter where they’re performing. “All five of us have agreed that there are maybe, like, seven songs that have to be played all the time,” he says. “‘Suedehead,’ ‘This Charming Man,’ ‘There Is A Light,’ all of that stuff has to be on the set list. We definitely do deep cuts from the albums.

I’ve been trying to get the guys to do more B-side stuff from Morrissey solo albums, because that’s the stuff that a lot of people aren’t expecting you to do.” Navarrete says that the diehard fans typically appreciate the album cuts from the classic Smiths records, and they keep things fresh by cycling songs in and out after a handful of shows. There are some songs the band hasn’t tackled yet, like the early cut “Pretty Girls Make Graves.” That leaves the door open for discovery. “For being around since 2011, not touching a lot of those songs is actually helping us. Because then we still have a good round of tracks to pick,” he says. The intense fame that The Smiths experienced is something that seemingly didn’t really begin until after they broke up. Despite the fact that they were immensely popular, their disbandment created a mystique around them that has only grown with time. Morrissey in particular has become an icon for people, with fans often rushing the stage just to try and hug him. For Navarrete, pinpointing exactly why The Smiths have resonated so deeply and profoundly with people in the last three decades is a difficult task. “I think it’s a combination of the fact that they’re not around anymore so you keep it close to your heart, and a lot of that music actually helped a lot of people. The kids that felt that they were outcasts. Without sounding cheesy, they wanted

to wear black and dig into their emotion. That’s obviously something that Morrissey is very present with in his lyrics,” he says. “And then there’s the musical side of it. The appreciation of the music that those four guys put together in the studio. Marr’s guitar - layering guitar upon guitar and it sounds like an orchestra. And any bass player will tell you, try to pick up Andy Rourke’s basslines and it’ll hurt your fingers after a while.” The Smiths’ unique sound was both musically complex, particularly in Marr’s singular approach to voicing chords and Morrissey’s dense and colorful poetry, and often simple in scope and production. What makes it interesting for Ordinary Boys is the interplay between the Smiths members and the compositional aspects of Marr’s guitar work. Parts were so intertwined and melodically layered that it’s easy to hear a chord progression or riff one way and then realize later that it’s actually played completely differently. “[Ordinary Boys band members] will come into a rehearsal after like three weeks of doing the same song over and over again, and then the night of the show they’ll tell me or the other members that they found one extra note [in the song] that they didn’t hear before. They’ll be like, ‘You’ll hear it tonight on stage.’” CS

Nashville-based singer and songwriter comes to Savannah BY SEAN KELLY

sean@connectsavannah.com

CAROLINE WATKINS is forging a path in music her own way — taking her passion for ountry music and making a name for herself in Nashville as a singing and songwriting force in her own right. What began as an infatuation with the written word evolved into a love of lyricism that led her to a career as an artist. The Belmont University grad has garnered praise for her music, and was even the recipient of the Miranda Lambert Women Creators scholarship. Her education at Belmont opened the door to a major publishing deal, which in turn opened more doors to her own artistic endeavors. She’ll be bringing her acclaimed songs to Saddle Bags on Fri., Nov. 30. We caught up with her ahead of the show to find out more about her rise in the Nashville ranks.

CW: I started writing when I was really young. I actually started writing stories as soon as I learned how to write [laughs]. I would write stories and they would turn into novels as I got older and older, and by the time I was showing my mom these 100-page novels and asking her to read them. I did that for a while, and when I was about 10 is when Taylor Swift was getting famous. She was writing songs and I was like, “Well, I can write songs too, I guess.” I stopped writing stories and started writing songs. My parents are big country music fans, so I listened to a lot of that. The first album I ever bought was by Jo Dee Messina. I listened to her a lot, Alan Jackson, Sara

I liked to sing ever since I was little, so I started taking voice lessons around the time I started writing songs. I got serious about it when I started high school. I started to play places around town like the Bluebird Cafe - really tried to start treating it as more than just a hobby. What was your experience at Belmont like? It seems like a real nucleus in Nashville in terms of getting started as a songwriter. What was your big takeaway from that experience? CW: I loved Belmont so much. My sophomore year, I got the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Scholarship, which is basically just a year of tuition for any woman in the music programs. She’s been one of my biggest influences in music, so to have that from her and from Belmont was probably one of the coolest things to happen. But it was really just affirmation to me that Belmont really does support music and songwriters.

Chelsea Paolini @ SENTIENT BEAN

New Hampshire singer and songwriter Chelsea Paolini, known as the singer for riff-rock band People Skills, is touring behind her second solo release and brings her acoustic show to the Sentient Bean on the extensive southeast run. The songs are smart, clever, and recall the Northwest indie rock of the 90s, but they’re unique in the vocal performance and slightly lo-fi production aesthetic. It’s sure to be a memorable night of music from a one-of-a-kind artist. TUES., DEC. 4, 7 P.M.

CULTURE THEATRE Titania and Puck -- From Left, April S. Hayes, Casey Bessette PHOTOS BY ARDSLEY PARK PRODUCTIONS

BY SEAN KELLY

sean@connectsavannah.com

UNDER THE direction of Collective Face Theater Ensemble’s artistic director David I.L. Poole, the celebrated local theater group is set to tackle Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with a slight twist. The show is an adaptation of the Shakespeare standard originally done by the Shakespeare Theatre in New Jersey, and puts a winter or holiday spin on everything summer-related. Poole stumbled upon the adaptation while searching for a show to do during the holiday season, and thought of it as an interesting alternative to the typical shows that many that most theaters take on. Midwinter revolves around the wedding of Thesus, the Duke of Athens, and Hyppolyta, the Queen of the Amazons. There are a number of plots that connect throughout, and the play opens with the

saga of Hermia, who’s torn between the man she’s expected to marry and the man she actually loves. She ultimately escapes into a forest with Lysander after being told by Thesus that she can either marry Demetrius, the man she’s been arranged with, or face death. From there, the play goes on to involve a strange love triangle and a group wedding, and culminates in a terribly-performed play done by a group known as The Mechanicals. At the end of Midwinter, the audience is left with the suggestion that everything they just witnessed might have been one long dream. “It seems like it’s really long and complicated, but when you see it you’ll understand what’s going on,” Poole says with a laugh. The layers of plotlines come together to create a winter spin on one of the most engaging and layered works in Shakespeare’s incredible repertoire. Ahead of opening night at the Kennedy Fine Arts Auditorium on the Savannah State University campus on Nov. 30, we

chatted with Poole about the show, why he chose Shakespeare, and why the legendary playwright’s work continues to resonate. Tell me a bit about how this play begins, for anyone who might not be familiar. DP: A Midsummer Night’s Dream is the most produced comedy of Shakespeare’s, and it’s a fun, family-filled play. It’s about crossed lovers – it starts off very dramatic. You think it’s going to go real dark, and then all of the sudden it lightens up. It’s about Hermia and her father, Egus. She’s in love with Lysander, but is betrothed to Demetrius. In this play Shakespeare, like he does in other plays, takes reference from Greek literature and then goes forward. But basically, what happens is – Egus is upset that his daughter doesn’t want to marry Demetrius and wants to marry Lysander. At the beginning, he comes to the Duke and says, “I want to bestow upon my

daughter the punishment of the land.” I say this to my actors – how high are the stakes in this play? Unfortunately, at this time, if she doesn’t marry and obey her father she can be killed. Or, she could go and live as a nun [laughs]. So the beginning of the play is filled with drama – she must marry Demetrius, but she does not want to marry Demetrius. She wants to marry Lysander, and she has to make this choice about what she’s going to do. Is she going to stand up for love and figure out a way to marry Lysander, or obey her father and marry Demetrius? I’m fascinated by the idea that Shakespeare’s work continues to resonate with people over hundreds of years. It’s amazing. Why do you think that is, and what made you want to interpret the show in this way? DP: One thing we all know is that Shakespeare never wrote original stories. His

Bert John’s experimentation with a new style of painting pays off in the show “Lumen.” PHOTOS COURTESY OF THE ARTIST.

LOCAL painter Bert John displays new landscape paintings this weekend. “Lumen” showcases John’s new technique on Nov. 30 at 2901 Bull St., an expansive space that used to be a piano showroom. John’s evolving style is attributable to a supply-and-demand mentality. “I started this new way of painting in response to a show I previously had with larger pieces,” says John. “I noticed the other artist had many smaller works selling and being taken out the same night. While I was successful in my own right during this show, I thought, ‘Why shouldn’t I capture a larger audience as well?’ “So the next day, I figured out a technique of painting that I could do that would translate to smaller canvases. The way I was painting at the time didn’t work well on small pieces.” John’s work is almost geometric in approach. He works from a photograph of the landscape, blocks off each part, and paints each section. “This style is more of a color-blocked mid-century feel and translates well,” John explains. “It also gave me an opportunity to use more saturated tones and a wider variety of colors.” This body of work has been a few months in the making, and John has made it more

his own along the way. “Now that I have had a few months painting this way, of course, I take liberties and don’t stay in between the lines perfectly,” says John. “Nature has become an inspiration in every sense of the word—first a literal translation and now more of an abstracted one.” The reasoning behind the name of the show plays into the way John paints. “The name of the show is ‘Lumen,’ loosely translated, meaning light,” says John. “I’ve tried to incorporate brighter and more intense saturation in this palette.” Overall, the new style is working great for John. “My brain doesn’t typically think in the abstract, given my science and medical background,” says John. “I take photos of marshes and landscapes ad use the lines and geometry I see in these photos to create my compositions. I’ve learned to throw in a handful of completely abstract pieces along the way.” CS

Tea and breakfast service in the Old World tradition

CONNECT SAVANNAH | NOV 28 - DEC 4, 2018

BY LINDY MOODY HOSPITALITY is one of the major qualities that defines being Southern. For many of us, anytime we host a guest we immediately offer them a glass of iced tea or some warm food. The same applies when we are guests in our another Southerner’s abode. When I heard about the concept of a new tea house in Savannah, La Petite Abeilles, I thought the restaurant would be nothing short of a perfect fit in our town.  Chef and Owner Mia Guerin opened the doors to her home and La Petite Abeilles 28 only a few short weeks ago. The Teahouse

and restaurant sits within the walls of a classic and beautiful historic Victorian home on Barnard Street. Guerin is doing the Southern thing and offering her guests the opportunity to sit on her wraparound porch and drink some tea.  She relocated to Savannah from San Diego because her daughter began studying at SCAD. Before her short-lived move to San Diego, Guerin operated Miss Guerin’s Tea House and a full size bakery in Mesa, Arizona.  As for the name, Guerin explains why coming up with that was the easy part:“My dad is French. Growing up there were three daughters, and my dad used to sing that to us, La Petite Abeilles — the little bees. It is actually spelled incorrectly... but my dad used to sing the La, so it is personal.” 

The menu of La Petite Abeilles pays homage to parts of Guerin’s menu at Miss Guerin’s Tea House while incorporating new creations as well. Guerin explains how she approached creating her new menu as college English major: “Jane Austen is one of my favorite authors, so you will see there is Jane Austen characters within the menu. Everybody who is not from Jane Austen is either one of my kids or one of my nieces or nephews.”

As Guerin puts it, almost every single item available is made in house. She says “there are very few cans, tomatoes and beans I think we have in cans.” To properly execute each dish, Guerin hired two Chefs that just graduated from The Virginia College, Tyler and Maddie. Every single baked good used by the restaurant is baked in their kitchen, even the sliced bread. I ask Guerin where she sourced some of her local ingredients and her response

doesn’t disappoint: “We use all fresh herbs, and I grow those here. From the rosemary, thyme, sage, mint, and pretty much everything. Tyler will walkout with a pair of sissies to clip the rosemary for his rosemary bread”. My husband and I went to try the brunch menu. He spotted the Grand Mariner Stuffed French Toast and could not resist. The menu offers more than just brunch or tea—lunch is available as well.  Four thick-cut triangles of toast are dunked in an egg wash before being seared to a golden brown, artfully arranged on a delicate plate, and finished with strawberries and a citrusy Grand Marnier infused cream. The finished flavor is that of a classic French toast with grown-up kick of orange liqueur. On the side comes crispy fried bacon, the ideal kick of savory, salty seasoning to balance the overall sweetness of the dish.  I ordered the Emma’s Breakfast, a plate of vegetable-jammed crustless quiche, rosemary roasted potatoes, and a warm scone. The vegetable to egg ratio in the quiche was mind-boggling, as it takes a skilled chef to be able to fill a quiche with so many items yet be able to keep the eggs from falling apart once baked. And although brimming with fresh vegetables, the eggs remained perfectly cooked and delicate.  As for what patrons have ordered the most, “quiche has been the number one thing, and it was the number one thing from before. It has three different types of cheese in it and it is veggie,” Guerin tells me.  Sarah’s Belgian Waffle was my husband’s second choice breakfast, and we decided to go for it too. For this creation you get a plate-sized airy waffle topped with your pick of candied pecans and maple syrup or a berry sauce and whipped cream.

He opted for the candied pecan version, due partially because of the Southern in him, and it did not disappoint. The sprinkling of crunchy roasted pecans added the right amount to texture to the weightless waffle. To partake in one of  La Petite’s Afternoon Tea Luncheons, you must make a reservation in advance. There are seven

available options in meals to devour with your tea. The tricky part is deciding the tea to drink, because La Petite offers over fifty different varieties of tea. Guerin hand-selected the various tea options through her worldly travels. “I really was fortunate that I got to go to Africa and all these places to got to tea farms and see how it is rolled, how it is made, how it smoked, how it is dried,” she explains as we sit in the ornate dining room of her Victorian.  High Tea Service is available from 4-6 p.m., by reservation only. The service is enough for two people and comes with a choice of two teas and various delectables; including scones, puff pastries, bruschetta, and a crostino.  The final trick up Guerin’s sleeve is her catering skills. La Petite has not limited itself to breakfast, lunch, and tea service, but also offer locals catering options. And even if you are not catering a big party, this holiday season the store is opening up its baking services to fill any holiday baking goods. In fact while I was there, I took home a mini pumpkin loaf painted with chocolate, an ideal treat for any holiday table.  CS

leads to a protracted, Kong-size climax that fails to match the innovation seen throughout the rest of the picture. After all, when Al Gore’s name is the subject of clever word play, a visual grotesquerie is inspired by Total Recall, and a gross-out gag is successfully lifted from the Monty Python playbook, it’s clear that here’s a children’s movie that has its game on.

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

OOO Ralph may have saved the arcade game six years ago, but now Ralph Breaks the Internet in the latest animated adventure featuring the lovable lug with more brawn than brains. A sequel to 2012’s Wreck-It Ralph, Ralph Breaks the Internet first and foremost expands upon the relationship between the overgrown kid Ralph (again voiced by John C. Reilly), who toils as the antagonist in the arcade game Fix-It Felix Jr., and Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), the star of the racing game Sugar Rush and, as it’s revealed late in the first picture, a bona fide princess. Now best friends, Ralph and Vanellope are put to the test when an attempted good deed on Ralph’s part results in the steering wheel control on the Sugar Rush game being irreparably damaged. All seems lost for Vanellope and the other game denizens until Ralph learns of something called “wi-fi” – or, as he pronounces it, “wifey.” Wi-fi leads to a magical land called the Internet, which in turn leads to a place called eBay, which in turn leads to the possible acquisition of the only known Sugar Rush replacement steering wheel in existence. So off Ralph and Vanellope go, whisked onto the Internet and into a land of viral videos, eager-to-accommodate search engines, and, of course, meanspirited user comments. There’s no shortage of imagination on tap in Ralph Breaks the Internet, and while

the film doesn’t quite reach the bar set by its predecessor, it’s propulsive enough to build up enough goodwill long before it reaches its rocky third act. For that, thank the five writers who know how to make the most out of their online milieu. Product placement in cinema is generally frowned upon, but how could one make a movie about the Internet and not include shout-outs to Amazon, Wikipedia and IMDb (to name but three of the logos occasionally popping up in the background)? And the name-dropping doesn’t end with the corporations — since this is a Disney picture, expect cameos from all manner of characters stationed under the Mouse House. Some are fleeting (Baymax), some are superfluous (oh, hi, C-3PO), some are poignant (R.I.P. Stan Lee), and some are clever (“I am Groot”). There’s even a bit in which Princess Vanellope meets the other Disney princesses for a lengthy chat – it’s easily the best sequence in the entire film. The emotional content — and conflict — arrives when Vanellope befriends a hardcore racer named Shank (Gal Gadot), leading Ralph to worry that his BFF will abandon him in order to join forces with her new gal pal in a dangerous game known as Slaughter Race. While the bond between Ralph and Vanellope represents the heart of the film, it’s eventually played out in a manner that feels too familiar even by the dictates of the standard Disney life lessons. It also

OOO The full title of the handy guide that aided African-American travelers during the Jim Crow era is The Negro Motorist Green Book. But since that would make for an unlikely marquee moniker, the name of the movie is simply Green Book. The guidebook — a compendium of hotels, restaurants and the like that were safe for blacks journeying through this country — is referenced so sparingly throughout the picture that it almost qualifies as a Hitchcockian MacGuffin, no more interesting to the audience than the uranium-filled bottles in Notorious or the airplane-engine schematics in The 39 Steps. Instead, it’s the human dimension that drives this factually based movie with as much purpose and dedication as Tony Vallelonga drives Don Shirley through the Deep South. A racist New York bouncer, Tony (Viggo Mortensen) is hired to serve as chauffeur to Shirley (Moonlight Oscar winner Mahershala Ali), a Jamaican classical pianist who bravely embarks on a tour that takes him through the more dangerous and openly prejudiced areas of the country in the early 1960s. As they spend ample time in each other’s company, Tony learns to accept his employer’s differences, thus allowing him to grow as a human being. Yes, it’s yet another movie in which the raison d’etre of a black character is merely to allow a white man to feel better about himself – note how the film (co-written by Tony’s son, Nick Vallelonga) completely adopts the POV of its Caucasian protagonist, with Shirley’s background only called upon when a monologue is required from Ali. Yet within that predictable context, Green Book is an accomplished and engaging picture, with director Peter Farrelly (best known for creating such raunchy comedies as There’s Something About Mary and Kingpin with his brother Bobby) easily commingling soft laughs and hardhitting drama. The picture’s greatest strength rests in the dynamic performances by Mortensen and Ali, both of whom add enough interesting shadings to turn what could have been a simplistic black-and-white tale into something incorporating no less than fifty shades of grey.

Every year the bird known as the Arctic tern experiences two summers and enjoys more daylight than any other animal. That’s because it regularly makes a longdistance journey from the Arctic to the Antarctic and back again. Let’s designate this hardy traveler as your inspirational creature for the next eleven months. May it help animate you to experiment with brave jaunts that broaden and deepen your views of the world. I don’t necessarily mean you should literally do the equivalent of circumnavigating the planet. Your expansive adventures might take place mostly in inner realms or closer to home.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

44

When the American Civil War began in 1861, the United States fractured. Four years later, the union was technically restored when the northern states defeated the southern states. At that time, African American slavery became illegal everywhere for the first time since the country’s birth decades earlier. But there was a catch. The southern states soon enacted laws that mandated racial segregation and ensured that African Americans continued to suffer systematic disadvantages. Is there a comparable issue in your personal life? Did you at sometime in the past try to fix an untenable situation only to have it sneak back in a less severe but still debilitating form? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to finish the reforms; to enforce a thorough and permanent correction.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Does an elusive giant creature with a long neck inhabit the waters of Loch Ness in northern Scotland? Alleged sightings have been reported since 1933. Most scientists dismiss the possibility that “Nessie” actually exists, but there are photos, films, and videos that provide tantalizing evidence. A government-funded Scottish organization has prepared contingency plans just in case the beast does make an unambiguous appearance. In that spirit, and in accordance with astrological omens, I recommend that you prepare yourself

for the arrival in your life of intriguing anomalies and fun mysteries. Like Nessie, they’re nothing to worry about, but you’ll be better able to deal gracefully with them if you’re not totally taken by surprise.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Does moss really “eat” rocks, as Cancerian author Elizabeth Gilbert attests in her novel *The Signature of All Things*? Marine chemist Martin Johnson says yes. Moss really does break down and release elements in solid stone. Gilbert adds, “Given enough time, a colony of moss can turn a cliff into gravel, and turn that gravel into topsoil.” Furthermore, this hardy plant can grow virtually everywhere: in the tropics and frozen wastes, on tree bark and roofing slate, on sloth fur and snail shells. I propose that we make moss your personal symbol of power for now, Cancerian. Be as indomitable, resourceful, and resilient as moss.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Let’s shout out a big “THANKS!” and “HALLELUJAH!” to the enzymes in our bodies. These catalytic proteins do an amazing job of converting the food we eat into available energy. Without them, our cells would take forever to turn any particular meal into the power we need to walk, talk, and think. I bring this marvel to your attention, Leo, because now is a favorable time to look for and locate metaphorical equivalents of enzymes: influences and resources that will aid and expedite your ability to live the life you want to live.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

“Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground,” writes author Judith Thurman. I’m guessing you will experience this feeling in the coming weeks. What does it mean if you do? It may be your deep psyche’s way of nudging you to find an energizing new sanctuary. Or perhaps it means you should search for fresh ways to feel peaceful and well-grounded. Maybe it’s a prod to push you outside your existing comfort zone so you can expand your comfort zone.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Venice, Italy consists of 118 small islands that rise from a shallow lagoon. A network of 443 bridges keeps them all connected. But Venice isn’t the world champion of bridges. The American city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania holds that title, with 446. I nominate these two places to be your inspirational symbols in the coming weeks. It’s time for you build new metaphorical bridges and take good care of your existing metaphorical bridges.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

To aid and support your navigation through this pragmatic phase of your astrological cycle, I have gathered counsel from three productive pragmatists. First is author Helen Keller. She said she wanted to accomplish great and noble things, but her “chief duty” was “to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble.” Second, author George Orwell believed that “to see what is in front of one’s nose” requires never-ending diligence. Finally, author Pearl S. Buck testified that she didn’t wait around until she was in the right mood before beginning her work. Instead, she invoked her willpower to summon the necessary motivation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Blackjack is a card game popular in gambling casinos. In the eternal struggle to improve the odds of winning big money, some blackjack players work in teams. One teammate secretly counts the cards as they’re dealt and assesses what cards are likely to come up next. Another teammate gets subtle signals from his card-counting buddy and makes the bets. A casino in Windsor, Ontario pressed charges against one blackjack team, complaining that this tactic was deceptive and dishonest. But the court decided in the team’s favor, ruling that the players weren’t cheating but simply using smart strategy. In the spirit of these blackjack teams, Sagittarius, and in accordance with astrological omens, I urge you to better your odds in a “game” of your choice by using strategy that is almost as good as cheating but isn’t actually cheating.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

What has become of the metaphorical seeds you planted during the weeks after your last birthday? Have your intentions flourished? Have your dreams blossomed? Have your talents matured? Have your naive questions evolved into more penetrating questions? Be honest and kind as you answer these inquiries. Be thoughtful and big-hearted as you take inventory of your ability to follow through on your promises to yourself. If people are quizzical about how much attention you’re giving yourself as you take stock, inform them that your astrologer has told you that December is Love Yourself Better Month.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you want to play the drinking game called Possum, you and your friends climb up into a tree with a case of beer and start drinking. As time goes by, people get so hammered they fall out of the tree. The winner is the last one left in the tree. I hope you won’t engage in this form of recreation anytime soon—nor in any other activity that even vaguely resembles it. The coming weeks should be a time of calling on favors, claiming your rewards, collecting your blessings, and graduating to the next level. I trust your policy will be: no trivial pursuits, no wasted efforts, no silly stunts.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

In his song “Happy Talk,” Academy Award-winning lyricist Oscar Hammerstein II offered this advice: “You gotta have a dream. If you don’t have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?” Where do you stand in this regard, Pisces? Do you in fact have a vivid, clearly defined dream? And have you developed a strategy for making that dream come true? The coming weeks will be an excellent time to home in on what you really want and hone your scheme for manifesting it. (P.S. Keep in mind Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s idea: “A goal without a plan is just a wish.”)
