IT’S BECOME clear over the past few years that there is a huge number of recent arrivals to Savannah/Chatham County who may not be completely familiar with important areas of local civics. This lesson became starkly clear on the last City election day in 2015, when my Facebook feed lit up with dozens and dozens of people who live in the Islands area who were extremely angry to find out that they couldn’t vote in the City election – as they do not actually live in the City of Savannah, but in unincorporated Cha-

controversial new Savannah Arena. Not every SPLOST project is a glamorous one; almost a third of the $1.5 billion in SPLOST funds collected since 1985 has actually gone to drainage improvements. Every six years, when the next SPLOST referendum comes around, municipalities across Chatham County, large and small, submit their wish lists to the Chatham County Commission, the overseeing body for SPLOST. What comes next is a whole bunch of old-fashioned political infighting, as elected and appointed officials make their case that their project list is the most deserving of being fully funded. It is, in effect, hardball pork-barrel politics at its most local and direct. A SPLOST-style revenue stream isn’t

A series of drastic cost overruns and contract controversies surrounding sexier projects in the tourist zone, including the Cultural Arts Center and the future Arena, has soured much of the public on marquee items that aren’t absolutely necessary. For the first time I can remember, there are political observers who think this round of SPLOST actually stands a chance of being defeated by the voters. It’s impossible to describe the shock wave this would send. Local government at all levels, as I said, has become completely addicted to this additional revenue stream. A defeat of SPLOST 7 this November would have truly seismic ramifications of all kinds. Second, due to the robust national and local economy, total SPLOST revenues, if

It’s impossible to describe the shock wave this would send. tham County. I have tried since then not to take for granted that everyone has the same amount of local political knowledge. Many people have just relocated here, with all that entails – new job, new home, raising a family, etc. – and haven’t had time to get involved. Maybe it’s time to get involved. You probably know that this year will mark another City election, for Mayor and all eight other City Council positions. This November’s election will also have something else extremely important on the ballot, which unfortunately gets much less attention: A choice whether or not to renew the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST). In a nutshell, SPLOST uses a one percent sales tax – the marketing term “penny tax” is misleading in my opinion – to fund capital projects throughout Chatham County. The key here is “capital projects.” By law, no SPLOST funds can be used for ongoing operating costs or maintenance or salaries, or to balance a budget. Only construction of new facilities and infrastructure. Examples of SPLOST projects can be found throughout the County: The justopened Cultural Arts Center, the Truman Parkway, Savannah Gardens, Coffee Bluff Marina, Bacon Park tennis courts… the list goes on and on. Upcoming projects include the new Central Precinct Headquarters and the

unique to Savannah, nor is it a new concept even here – the first round was passed by voters in 1985. We have had six rounds of SPLOST so far, in six-year increments. This year you’ll be voting on SPLOST 7. (Unlike the City elections, this ballot item is open to all residents of Chatham County, regardless of what city, or no city, you live in.) What has become obvious is the reliance of local governments on this revenue stream, which in the case of the City of Savannah is essentially equivalent to doubling the City’s annual discretionary budget. This year, City Manager Rob Hernandez, in one of his last major acts in the office before his resignation takes effect in June, made the very bullish ask of about $220 million in allotted SPLOST funds from the County’s take. (Previous reports had the City asking for closer to $120 million; Hernandez was upbraided for the huge ask by Commissioner Chester Ellis. The City will likely receive in the $120-180 million range when all’s said and done.) Several important factors are driving the SPLOST discussion and negotiation this time around: First, there is a growing groundswell among the public at large that SPLOST needs to get back to its 1980s roots of mostly providing for basic infrastructure improvements.

it’s passed, are expected to be quite healthy this time around. This has the effect of not only spurring more ambitious plans, but in raising the level of risk if there is another economic downturn, and a whole bunch of projects are suddenly bereft of capital funding before they can be finished. (It’s happened before.) Lastly but not to be ignored, growth patterns in Chatham County are changing very rapidly and there is a sense that the SPLOST protocol hasn’t kept up with the times. The City of Savannah is asking for huge amounts of money for various projects – including yet another round of very expensive streetscaping for Broughton Street (does it really look that bad as it is now?). But people who live in other, more rapidly growing parts of Chatham County see the situation as patently unfair, and another example of the City bigfooting SPLOST at West Chatham’s expense. County Commissioner Dean Kicklighter, who represents West Chatham, said the Broughton streetscaping request alone is more than the combined total asks of three smaller, but very fast-growing, municipalities in the county. These are the factors to watch. We’ll cover SPLOST much more as election time approaches. CS

Tell me more about that organization. The Society was founded to preserve the ideals and fellowship of officers of the Continental Army who served in the American Revolution. They focus on people that have a lineage that are tied to the patriarchal side of having relatives in the Revolutionary War. It’s something that Alida Harper Fowlkes was very interested in, which is why she donated her home to them. There are naturally a lot of connections with us and them—having the battlefield from the Revolutionary War outside the [Savannah] History Museum. There are some connections there. I feel like the home being from the 1840s and then us having Old Fort Jackson and other sites tied to the Civil War, we’re able to talk more about that. And then, of course, at all our sites we’re looking to incorporate more women’s history. It’s cool to be able to have a strong female figure who managed this property that we can incorporate into all the history of the sites. Thinking she did it all without family money, without her husband’s money, is really fascinating and inspiring to me. You don’t hear about that very often. She bought it for $9,000 from the original family that purchased this home in 1842, so it was carried on in the family for a good amount of time, then it was sold in 1939 to her. She apparently had her eye on it for a good amount of time. In some of her diary entries and other information we’ve

gathered, she really liked this home for a long time. What will the open house Sunday be like? It’s going to be really fun. We’re going to let people do a meet-and-greet with our team since we’re new to taking over the site. We’ll talk about what we have planned for the future. What do future plans for the Coastal Heritage Society include? We’re planning to do a lot more diverse educational planning and tours. We’re actually going to be doing tours every hour on the hour. It used to be just as people came in, but we’re seeing an uptick in traffic at the site, so we’re hoping to do them hourly. One really great deal we have is our membership. If you get a membership to Coastal Heritage Society, you get access to all our sites for the entire year, and if you join now, you have an extra site. We have a ton of field trips groups, and one thing we do at our downtown sites is we have Title I field trips, so for Title I schools it’s funded through Gulfstream. We also do a program called Museums for All, where if you bring an EBT card to any of our sites, you can get in for free. Hopefully we can integrate other programs like that. CS

Cookies for Choice

Planned Parenthood hosts special Mother’s Day fundraiser BY RACHAEL FLORA

CONNECT SAVANNAH | MAY 8 - 14, 2019

rachael@connectsavannah.com

THREE years ago, after the presidential election, a group of bakers from Atlanta turned their disappointment into something delicious. They baked 150 cookies a piece, boxed them, sold them, and donated the proceeds to Planned Parenthood. The Cookie Grab, named after Trump’s comment, has taken place in Atlanta each year since. Now, it comes to Savannah with its own spin. “We decided we were going to do it a little more Savannahian,” says Planned Parenthood Southeast board member Nina Altschiller. “We’re doing it for Mother’s Day, and it’s called Plan C: Cookies for Choice.” Eighteen of Savannah’s best bakers will bake a special cookie for inclusion in the box. There will be only 200 boxes made. The $50 boxes can be purchased online and picked up at The Grey Market Sat., May 11 at 9 a.m. or Sun., May 12 at 2 p.m. They can also be picked up at the Forsyth Farmers Market on Saturday. Every single dollar raised will go to Planned Parenthood. In developing the idea, Altschiller knew to contact Natasha Gaskill, pastry chef for The Grey Market. “I called up Natasha Gaskill and said, ‘You’re the best baker I know. Would you be interested in doing this?’ Because I knew she would,” she remembers. “I literally couldn’t wait to get started,” says Gaskill. “I told Allison Morisano, the general manager at The Grey Market, and she instantly said, ‘It should be called Plan C.’ I thought the name was so brilliant. Atlanta called theirs the Cookie Grab as a clapback to Trump’s gross words. I love the name and sentiment of the original, but I love the idea of this fundraiser being about the support of women’s health and our reproductive rights.”

The cookies are diverse, from Gaskill’s smoked fig leaf pecan and oat cookie to Analog’s salted chocolate chip to Gottlieb’s famous chocolate chewies. “Honestly, I just reached out to all the chefs I knew. I figured let’s cast the net wide and see what I catch,” says Gaskill. “It’s pretty much everybody in town that can bake,” says Altschiller. “It’s a wonderful show of support from the baking community.” Meghan Eberly from Analog Public House has been involved with Planned Parenthood since 2017, and she strongly believes in the cause.

“I’ve always had health insurance and a way to access basic sexual health services, and I care deeply about Planned Parenthood because everyone should have that right,” says Eberly. “Nothing should stand between a person and their ability to care for their own body.” That’s a sentiment that Gaskill and Altschiller also share. “I used Planned Parenthood for my healthcare in college. 1 in every 5 women in their lifetime has,” says Gaskill. “I can’t think of a gift or sentiment more special for Mother’s Day than supporting women’s health and the health of their families.” “Aren’t you glad your mother made the right choice for you?” asks Altschiller. “Thank your mother for making that choice.” CS To purchase a box of cookies, visit planc-cookiesforchoice.eventbrite.com.

CNT arrests nurse for stealing medication

A registered nurse is in custody after an investigation found she was stealing medication while on-duty. Early on April 23, the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT) arrested 34-year-old Katherine AlvaradoTorres, a registered nurse, at Memorial Medical Center (MMC) in Savannah. “Alvarado-Torres was employed as a nurse at MMC at the time of her arrest. Alvarado-Torres was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance (Percocet) with Intent to Distribute and Theft by Taking,” says a CNT spokesperson. “CNT’s investigation into AlvaradoTorres began early this morning after CNT was contacted by MMC’s security. MMC security informed CNT of an internal investigation involving a current patient missing prescription pain medication. During the joint CNT and MMC investigation, it was determined Alvarado-Torres stole a small number of prescription pain

medication from a current patient. The thefts occurred on two separate incidents in which the medication was replaced with a counterfeit substance. The investigation also determined this is likely an isolated incident and that Alvarado-Torres was giving the pills to a person known to Alvarado-Torres,” CNT says. This is an on-going investigation and additional charges and arrests are possible.

Around 12:25 p.m. April 30, Joseph Pierreliem, 67, of Hallwood, Va., was driving a Ford E350 van on northbound Interstate 95 near the Jimmy DeLoach Parkway exit when the driver-side rear tire blew out, resulting in him losing control of the vehicle. The vehicle spun and overturned. Pierreliem and a passenger, Ivica Fremon, 50, of Miami, were transported to Memorial Medical Center for treatment. Fremon sustained serious injuries as a result of the crash. Both were wearing their seatbelts when the crash occurred. The crash resulted in all lanes of northbound Interstate 95 being closed for about

National Prescription Drug Takeback nets 206 lbs

The weekend of April 28, Chatham County government, the Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team (CNT), the Chatham County Police Department, and a number of federal, state and local counterparts took part in collecting unused, expired or unwanted drugs at four local sites throughout Chatham County. “The collected drugs weighed in at 206 pounds. The local total will be submitted

to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) who will collect totals throughout the country,” a spokesperson for CNT says. “The National Prescription Drug Takeback addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue. According to the 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.5 million Americans abused controlled prescription drugs. That same study showed that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA’s National Prescription Drug Takeback events are also a significant piece of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy’s prescription drug abuse prevention strategy,” CNT reports. If you missed this event and would like to still take part, you can access a 24/7 drop-off bin in the front lobby of the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office located at 1050 Carl Griffin Drive in Savannah. There is also a drop-off bin located at the Chatham County Courthouse located at 133 Montgomery St. in Savannah. The bin is located inside the courthouse.

NEWS & OPINION NEWS OF THE WEIRD Florida!

New Hours! Now Open Earlier Friday - Sunday!

Monday - Thursday

Police officers in Indialantic, Florida, responded to at least seven calls about a man disturbing the peace on April 7. Patrons of Starbucks and Sassy Granny’s Smoothies, among others, were startled when 61-yearold Thomas Devaney Lane started yelling, calling himself “the saint” and threatening to unleash his army of turtles on the community. According to WKMG, Lane went along with an officer to the police station, where he screamed at the dispatcher and pounded on the walls, but then left the building. He was located later at a 7-Eleven, verbally assaulting customers. As officers stood by, Lane called 911 and told the dispatcher, “I need to leave now or you will all be sorry you (expletive) with the saint.” Lane was charged with disturbing the peace, resisting arrest without violence and misusing 911.

The Way the World Works

In Nashville, Tennessee, as the NFL Draft was taking over the town, brides and bridesmaids celebrating bachelorette parties were confounded by the crowds. WZTV reported on April 25 that the influx of crazed football fans was cramping the style of several groups: “We come here to listen to country music, not hang out with football boys,” pouted a bride named Cara. “I’ll tell you who’s going to pay for this. My husband. No

football next season,” threatened a bridesmaid named Cyndi. But a bride named Savannah was more Zen about the situation: “We’re gonna make the best of it. It is what it is.”

Running Out of Time

Lukas Bates, 30, of southeastern England, dreamed big while running the London Marathon on April 28, according to Fox News. In addition to finishing, Bates hoped to secure a Guinness world record as the fastest runner dressed as an iconic building. His costume, the tower known as Big Ben in London, rose several feet above his head -- and that, it turns out, is what tripped him up. As Bates approached the finish line, his costume got caught on the scoreboard structure overhead. Finally a sympathetic race steward helped Bates free himself and make it over the finish line in three hours, 54 minutes and 21 seconds -- missing by only 20 seconds the record held by Richard Mietz, who ran last year’s Berlin Marathon dressed as Germany’s Holstentor gate.

Sportsman’s Warehouse on April 24, where he paid for some items with a rewards card but also left the store with some bullets and a pair of sunglasses. Two days later, the Gillette News Record reported, the man returned and asked to fill out a job application, then walked out with two more pairs of sunglasses worth $85. This time, workers called police, who arrested the man and recovered all the stolen items.

Inexplicable

The Lankenau Medical Center in suburban Philadelphia was the site of a break-in on the morning of April 20, but it was the stolen loot that leaves us scratching our heads. Two men and a woman stuffed several colonoscopes worth $450,000 into three backpacks. The scopes are used to examine colons during colonoscopies. “This is not something that a typical pawn shop might accept,” said Lower Merion Police Det. Sgt. Michael Vice. “My feeling would be that it was some type of black market sales.” He also told WCAU that it’s not yet clear whether it was an inside job.

Lame

Why spend all that money on a real vacation when you can just fake a trip to an iconic destination? That’s the service offered by Fake a Vacation, a Nebraska company that offers to superimpose you in

a photo from a popular vacation spot, such as Las Vegas or the Grand Canyon, for posting on your social media pages. According to United Press International, they’ll even offer you some fun facts about the place you choose to help you make your trip stories more legit. Packages start at $19.99; no word on what it costs to get your dignity back.

You Know You’ve Thought of It

United Press International reported on April 25 that the Arizona Department of Public Safety arrested yet another driver using a dummy in the passenger seat to cruise in the HOV lane along State Route 202. “Don’t let this be you,” the department’s Twitter feed warned. The mannequin in this case was dressed as a woman.

Awesome!

Idahoans embraced the Big Idaho Potato, a 28-foot-long steel-and-plaster potato constructed in 2012 to mark the Idaho Potato Commission’s 75th anniversary. It’s been traveling the country ever since, promoting Idaho’s biggest crop, and the plan was for it to be retired this year, when Big Idaho Potato 2.0 arrives. But Kristie Wolfe had better idea. The tiny house builder has converted the sculpture into a single-room hotel (aptly called the Big Idaho Potato Hotel), reported USA Today. It features a queen bed, two chairs and a bathroom with

a whirlpool and skylight for stargazing; Wolfe lists it on Airbnb for $200 per night. “It’s a way of inviting people to experience Idaho in a unique way,” remarked Frank Muir, CEO of the Idaho Potato Commission.

The High Price of Vanity

A “vampire facial” is a procedure during which blood is drawn with a needle and then “spun” to separate the plasma, which is then injected into the face. For customers of a spa in Albuquerque, New Mexico, though, the most lasting effects may come after a blood test. The state’s Department of Health is urging customers of VIP Spa, which closed in September 2018, to undergo HIV testing after two people were infected following treatment there. Dr. Dean Bair of the Bair Medical Spa said people should always make sure they’re going to a licensed facility for such procedures. “This is just the worst example of what can go wrong,” he told KOAT. The spa closed after inspectors found the spa’s practices could potentially spread blood-borne infections, including hepatitis B and C as well as HIV.

Smooth Reactions

An unnamed Ogden, Utah, woman who accused her boyfriend of cheating added emphasis to the charge in a most unusual manner on April 27, according to a Salt Lake County Jail report. The 23-year-old

was with her boyfriend in the parking lot of a strip mall in Sandy when she “took her clothing off as she accused the boyfriend of cheating. ... The incident took place in a busy public area with constant vehicle and pedestrian traffic.” KSL reported the woman told police she stripped because “her boyfriend doesn’t want her anymore.” She was arrested for disorderly conduct and lewdness involving a child.

Family Values

A 33-year-old man from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, was arraigned April 29 on two counts of abuse of a corpse and one count of criminal mischief after he flushed his grandparents’ ashes down the toilet. The Tribune-Review reported that Thomas Porter Wells was living at his mother’s house when she became fed up with his drinking and marijuana use and asked him to leave last September. Denise Porter told police she learned from a relative in February that Wells had disposed of her parents’ remains, which had been stored in a box as part of a memorial in her bedroom, before leaving. Wells denied flushing the ashes, but he later texted his mother that he would flush her remains, too, after she died. CS

MUSIC INTERVIEW

Corey Smith

is a DIY superstar Smith chats about doing his career on his terms

BY SEAN KELLY

CONNECT SAVANNAH | MAY 8 - 14, 2019

sean@connectsavannah.com

COREY SMITH has built an impressive business for himself in music. It hasn’t always been easy, but he’s managed to live an artist’s dream of maintaining a thriving career without compromising artistry. Since his first release in 2003, Smith has issued 10 albums on independent labels and achieved both country and folk chart success. Ahead of Smith’s show at Grayson Sta12 dium on Fri., May 10, we spoke with him

about all things music and what it takes to make it as an independent artist. What do you think kickstarted your love of music and writing songs? Smith: You know, I didn’t really expect to have a career in music. I was a high school teacher for four years. When I was a teenager I played guitar, learned a bunch of covers, and dabbled in writing a little bit. At some point I started going out and playing little bar gigs, just making extra money. At that point I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do, but then I decided to take my college education seriously.

When I dropped out of college, I was going and playing little bar gigs. I got free food and drinks, and I thought that was pretty cool. But ultimately, I was like, “I don’t want to do this for a living. This would suck.” People were just kind of plunking quarters in me and I felt like a human jukebox. I had songs that I’d written at that point, but people didn’t really want to hear those. So I just sort of put all of that on the back burner, and took my education very seriously. But then I realized that I still loved playing guitar and writing songs. When I got back into it, I knew I didn’t want to be just a cover artist. So I was able to really focus on how to write songs that resonated with people. You’ve had this really amazing trajectory in music where you’ve been able to do things on your own terms. Even early on, you did everything yourself when you were making records. Do you remember the moment when you realized things were really starting to take

off? Smith: Oh, yeah. In retrospect, it happened really fast. It’s been 13 or 14 years since I left high school, so that seems like a whole lifetime ago. But back then, it all seems like it happened really quick. The bulk of it actually happened when I was still teaching high school. I was able to make one record because I won an open mic contest and the prize was 12 hours of studio time. I was able to get more bar gigs because I had a record, and then people started sharing the record. Back then you had Limewire and Napster, and then Myspace became a huge thing. A year later, I’d saved my money from those bar gigs and was able to make another record. And the next year I did the same thing. So I put out three records when I was still teaching school, and they had songs on them like “TwentyOne” and “If I Could Do It Again.” These songs were really growing in this organic, grassroots way. I didn’t even have a manager - the numbers just started growing

You know, I didn’t really expect to have a career in music. I was a high school teacher for four years. When I was a teenager I played guitar, learned a bunch of covers, and dabbled in writing a little bit. exponentially. And then, before I knew it, I was the number one unsigned country artist on Myspace. To me, it seemed like a fortune back then. The one moment that I point to is the first time I played the Georgia Theatre in Athens. It was in December of 2005, I think. It sold out in advance. I remember leaving the gig and realizing that I’d made more money from it than I would make in two or three months of teaching. I thought, “Okay, well, I probably ought to pursue this.” It seemed like the sky was the limit, but ultimately every time I talked with major record labels it was always an awkward conversation. Because I wasn’t really desperate to move on. Basically, what I was going to have to sacrifice in order to play in that sandbox just wasn’t what I was interested in doing. Now that you’ve been making records and writing songs for so long, what do you feel like interests you lyrically these days? Smith: Well, there are only so many themes. There are love songs, there are songs that are introspective, songs that touch on political or social issues, biographical songs - there are only so many themes in life. But I find that with maturity and age, I approach a theme differently now than I would have a year ago

or a month ago. Fundamentally, I don’t approach the writing any differently. I don’t make myself write - I don’t do it if I don’t feel like writing. But now I think I’m much deeper into the musical side of it. For instance, I’m in the my studio now and I’ve been working on a guitar part for the last three hours. Really digging into what glues songs together. Exploring different harmonic and rhythmic possibilities. Each song could be done an infinite number of ways. Because I’ve done all my records on my own, I’ve only worked with a producer one time. And I will say that that’s one of the things I have missed. When you work with a major label, they have access and funds to get world class producers and musicians that have made hit records. They’ve made the records that people love to listen to, and there’s tremendous value in that. For me, I’m still in my own little world trying to figure out how to do that. It’s kind of a love/hate relationship because it’s really hard work. On one hand, it’s why I love music - there’s no end to it and there are infinite possibilities [in the studio]. But at the same time, I need to put out music. It’s what I do for a living. So sometimes it’s hard to tell myself to stop and finish something [laughs].

SLOTHRUST MAKES A PACT Leah Wellbaum chats ahead of Savannah show

BY SEAN KELLY

CONNECT SAVANNAH | MAY 8 - 14, 2019

sean@connectsavannah.com

SLOTHRUST’S LATEST album, 2018’s The Pact, further cements the Bostonbased band’s place in the city’s storied history of alternative music. The city that bred bands like The Pixies, The Lemonheads, and the Juliana Hatfield Three is still spawning top notch bands these days. Slothrust, who formed at Sarah Lawrence College in 2010, is no exception. The band tours regularly and has made a number of critically-acclaimed albums, combining the sonic characteristics of garage rock with pop sensibilities and their own unique genre-bending musical aesthetic. We spoke to bandleader/guitarist Leah Wellbaum last week, prior to their show at The Jinx on May 9 - presented by Savannah Stopover. How did you guys find each other?

Wellbaum: We all went to the same college, and were in the music department together. We played in a bunch of blues and jazz ensembles. Kyle [Bann, bassist] and I 14 were in a chamber improv group, and Will

[Gorin, drummer] had a hip hop group going at one point. Wow! So did you guys have influences in common? How did you land on what you do? It’s obviously very different than a lot of what you were doing in school. Wellbaum: Yeah, we all played in a couple of different ensembles together and kind of realized that energetically we were on the same page with music and improv. It kind of just followed naturally from there. We all listened to a really wide range of music, for sure. I’ve always listened to a lot of John Fahey, and a lot of Nirvana. So I think in the early days, those two things were really big for me. It definitely sounds like the band has evolved since the first record, particularly on the latest one. If you could pinpoint one thing that you feel has contributed to that evolution, what would that be? Wellbaum: I’d say that on our most recent record, we weren’t concerned about being able to replicate the material live. We

wanted to really utilize the studio as its own instrument and then figure out the live arrangements from there. It definitely seems to be more freeing if you can get to the point where you treat both like separate processes. Wellbaum: I agree! What’s one example of something on the record that you did to implement that practice? Wellbaum: A good example of that is definitely “Some Kind Of Cowgirl.” The main thing I did on that song and a bunch of songs is stack my vocals. That’s not something I’ve done in the past because there’s only one of me on stage, so we have to rearrange things a bit and energetically shift things in order to create a live performance that feels like it can convey a similar thing that the recording conveys. What’s the writing process like these days? Wellbaum: Generally, I write and demo the song by myself. And then I send the

band the demo and we work on grooves and arrangements. We usually try a couple different things. Sometimes the initial idea I had for a groove works, and other times Will and Kyle have an idea for a groove that I hadn’t imagined. Then it ends up taking the song in a different direction. When you demo songs, are they generally pretty fleshed out or sort of bare bones acoustic recordings? Wellbaum: It definitely depends - there are some songs that I’ve demoed pretty thoroughly, and others that are more focused around the guitar part and the melody/ lyrics. Is there a song on the new record that you feel particularly attached to? Wellbaum: Definitely “Travel Bug.” I actually recorded that one myself in my house. It was a demo and we didn’t even recut it. CS

Guitar electricity: a Q&A with Hannah Wicklund Guitar phenomenon talks about her rock and roll rollercoaster

BY SEAN KELLY

An intimate 100-seat venue featuring national touring artists.

sean@connectsavannah.com

HANNAH WICKLUND has seen all sides of the industry and the world of music. The rising guitar phenomenon, who’s still in her 20s, has played all around the world to audiences that grow steadily with each passing tour. It’s the kind of progression that every artist dreams of, and Wicklund is certainly living a rock and roll fantasy. After spending a while playing covers around South Carolina and in Savannah with a rotating band known as the Steppin Stones, Wicklund has assembled a powerhouse band that allows her to showcase not only her guitar skills but also her knack for song craft and her show-stopping vocals. Ahead of her upcoming gig at Barrelhouse South on Thurs., May 9, we spoke with Wicklund about her life in music thus far.

UPCOMING SHOWS:

How did you start playing guitar and getting into music?

The cool thing is that is seems like in some ways things took off pretty quickly, but it’s also been a pretty gradual ride from there. Wicklund: Yeah. Things take off quickly but if you have the wrong team around you, the music industry is not a friendly place for a young woman who’s alone without anyone looking out for her. So I’ve unfortunately been had many times, but like you said it’s kind of been a start/stop gradual ride. So when you first started the band, were you writing songs from day one? Was that always the intention? Wicklund: It first started as a classic rock cover band. I’d been writing songs since before the band started. My first songbook started when I was, like, 4 years old. So if I got in trouble with mom and dad, I’d lay in bed with my feet on the wall

and just be making up songs [laughs]. When we started the band, being on Hilton Head if you wanted to play live you played what people wanted to hear. So upon starting the band, that was kind of the approach. And then we started recording - well, technically we did our first music video for a song called “My World” when I was about 9 years old. It was always kind of a gradual build bringing the original music into our shows. When I was 16 I graduated high school, and that’s pretty much when the band flipped and started pursuing original music full throttle. Let’s talk about your influences. What were some of your biggest musical inspirations early on and how do you think that has evolved over the years? Wicklund: Tom Petty has always been there, but initially my influences were also people like Janis Joplin, AC/DC, we used to cover some of The Cars’ songs - I think I was way more focused on the classic rock artists. In the last couple of years, with getting older and my songwriting maturing, I’ve gone back and explored influences I had early on but that I didn’t necessarily relate to my music at the time. People like Etta

James, Amy Winehouse, Jeff Beck. And I really have embraced my love of 90s rock in the next two years, so I keep on saying that my next record is going to have an Alice In Chains meets Amy Winehouse meets Hendrix kind of a vibe. You’ve been able to go to Europe and the U.K. and play shows over there from experience, it seems true what people say about the audiences being very different there. There’s a different appreciation for music over there. Would you say that’s been your experience? Wicklund: Definitely. I toured over in Europe in 2017, and it was a great experience. The people who were coming to the shows had never seen me before but they came knowing my music and being very inquisitive. It felt very rewarding. Like, people do care. In the States I have pockets of really amazing people, but to have so many people over there all appreciating the same thing was really neat. CS

Wicklund: Well, I started on piano when I was about 3 years old. That was my first instrument. I just had really creative, supportive parents who got me into music at the get go. But my brother had been playing music since he was young, so it was a very natural family progression. Then I started playing guitar when I was 8. I picked it up pretty fast, and fell right into singing and playing songs. About six months later I started the Steppin Stones, and the rest is history [laughs].

ONE WILDER P O H P HI RIDE E T I N Guitarist Webb Wilder

L O F GU PORTRAYA ejinx912.com th Tickets at

set for Jinx gig

BY SEAN KELLY

sean@connectsavannah.com

WEBB WILDER has pretty much seen it all in the music industry. He’s been on major and indie labels, toured worldwide, and accumulated a fiercely devoted fanbase along the way. Born John “Webb” McMurry, Wilder has been flying the rock and roll flag for decades now with his blend of surf rock, rockabilly, traditional rock and roll, and R&B.

Wilder, who plays a special “Evening With” gig at The Jinx on May 11 presented by Knocked Out Loaded, has been playing guitar since he was a kid. “I was an only child, and my parents were not musical. I always gravitated towards music, I don’t know why. Before the Beatles and British Invasion thing happened, I was digging music and had some records. But I was in the fourth grade when that all happened, and it sort of launched me into hyperdrive,” he tells Connect. “I don’t know that I really asked for a guitar, but my mother said, ‘Would you like a guitar?’ And so I got this really cheap Silvertone acoustic guitar for Christmas.” From there, Wilder began a lifelong love affair with the guitar - something that has afforded him a lucrative career as a musician, and even as an actor with a notable appearance in Peter Bogdanovich’s 1993 film The Thing Called Love. Along the way, there have been ups and downs in terms of how popular roots rock, rockabilly, and their associated genres have been. In the 90s, Brian Setzer’s solo hits reinvigorated the genre and ushered in a resurgence of sorts for the general retro rock and roll world. Despite the dips in mainstream significance, Wilder has maintained a solid and dependable audience, and sustained a truly admirable level of artistry without compromise. What keeps him going, he says, is his genuine love of music - a passion that is undeniably ingrained in him. “I always tell people, ‘If you bark like a dog long enough, you’re a dog.’ What’s funny is that out of 30+ years, there are only really 10 albums. But if you look at the number of songs on those albums, it might be the equivalent of somebody else’s 15 albums. The body of work is pretty huge,” he says. “And performing has been my lifeblood, so anytime I go more than two weeks without doing it I sort of have an identity crisis.” Webb says he’s currently working on a new album, which will be his first since 2015. He likens it to the great Nick Lowe, who’s more recent music has been fairly opposite to the more rock and roll stuff he’s known for in his early solo work and as part of Rockpile. “I see the record I’m making now as sort of a fence straddler of those two things,” he says. “It’s kind of an age appropriate album, but it’s got the roots rock stuff and it’s got some singer/songwriter-y stuff. It’s not done yet - I never really know what a record is until it’s done.” CS

Coming together for the Earth

‘Anthropocene’ includes 170 works related to climate change BY RACHAEL FLORA

rachael@connectsavannah.com

LIKE many around the world, Kathy Varadi is inspired by Greta Thunberg. The sixteen year-old student from Sweden has been a passionate advocate for taking immediate action against climate change. Her plea for urgent action touched Varadi, halfway across the world. “If she can do it, everybody should do something,” Varadi says. “If she can do that, I can do this—I can get artists involved.” That’s how “Anthropocene” was created. The result of the SCAD Curatorial Incubator Project, “Anthropocene” is a juried show of over 170 pieces that asked artists to reflect on climate change. The name “Anthropocene” refers to the geological epoch we’ve been in since the Industrial Revolution, which obviously shows the major changes our planet has undergone in the time since. When Varadi learned of the opportunity, she initially wasn’t interested in curation. “The email came across, and I didn’t even answer it, I just jumped away from

my desk,” laughs Varadi. But she decided to apply to help round out the submissions, and when she was creating her proposal, she chose climate change as a topic. “I thought, ‘What topic would be good for my fellow classmates who are in the 20 year-old age group?’” remembers Varadi. “I’ve had an interest in climate change my whole life because I was a biology major and [worked] in medicine. I have a very strong background in science and art, so I started researching and saw there was some interest in science and art. Then I talked to some of my fellow students and they were all over it.” As evidenced by the number of submissions—over 200—the call for entries for “Anthropocene” really resonated with Varadi’s SCAD classmates. “It’s just taken on a life of its own,” says Varadi. “We have [students from] painting, printing, photo, architecture, fibers, animation, illustration, furniture, and there’s more. The diversity is there. We have undergrad, grad, faculty, and staff who submitted too.” Varadi herself has a unique background: she worked as a physician in Texas for 25 years before retiring to Savannah. “Dad always said to do something, so I was sketching and my girlfriend Kim said,

money off fossil fuels—how do we go up against that big business? If the whole tide turns, if gazillions of people say no… If everybody says no to straws, why would you make them?” Varadi designed the exhibition to reflect the way we can approach the problem of climate change. “It’s a collaborative exhibit that mirrors how the solution has to be done: bit by bit, all buddies,” says Varadi. One unique feature of “Anthropocene” is the community element. “SCAD can’t always reach out to the community, but what I’ve done is I’ve invited my friends who are artists in the community and asked them to come be guest speakers because their work reflects climate change,” says Varadi. “The artists will present their work in guest talks, Debra Malschick, Reflection and when they present their work I’ll honor them by putting their work on the wall.” ‘I didn’t know you could sketch. You should One of the artists participating in the go to SCAD,’” remembers Varadi. “So I exhibition is Lisa Lebofsky, an internationsaid, why not?” ally exhibited artist who draws inspiraVaradi received her BFA in painting last tion from traveling to remote parts of the June and loved attending SCAD so much world. Her piece, “Melting Iceberg,” an oil she couldn’t leave. The community she painting on aluminum, is the poster image found here is important in so many ways. for the event. “The reason I did this was because, like While there will be some pieces for sale Greta says, you think of climate change and in the show, Varadi assures that the show think, ‘Oh, this problem is big,’” explains isn’t about the money. Varadi. “But you have to approach it bit “Stuff is for sale, but nobody is pushing by bit. When you talk to people, everyit,” she says. “If someone wants it, great, body’s got an idea. You can’t just have one but that’s not the point.” CS answer—there are a whole bunch. It’s a collaborative. And all those people making “Anthropocene” holds its opening reception May 10 at Alexander Hall, 668 Indian St. 21

Batchelder BY RACHAEL FLORA

rachael@connectsavannah.com

AT SCAD’s Alexander Hall, the students studying photography, printmaking and painting come together to form a community. The Alexander Collective is a studentled club that holds peer critiques, art trades, and the third annual Salon Show. Each student is invited to participate in the juried show, held at Fab’rik this Saturday. The exhibition will showcase a wide variety of the talent in the building. Luke Batchelder is this year’s president of Alexander Collective. We sat down with him last week.

1.

Tell me about the history of this show. This is the third annual show. The past two spring seasons, we’ve had the show at Non-Fiction Gallery, and then they closed down. It was a way to get everyone that’s a part of the building—painting, printmaking and photo—we can all come together and get a community going. It’s a submission process. Everyone gets a piece in the show. Not a lot of people leave SCAD with exhibiting their work, so this is a chance to have something on your CV or resume that you have exhibited so that when you leave here and go forward, you have experience and have helped install. So that’s the idea: getting people together and giving them that experience, if you want to do it.

2. Why is that experience important? I think the idea of professionalism and finding a spot, getting your work out there so people can see it, it’s a public event. People are scared to show their work and to reach out. I think that’s what the Collective wants to do is create that community. Everyone is welcome that works in the building; whatever your passion is, we’re here to help exhibit that and show it in a wide diverse variety of students and where they come from.

3. How did you become president of In the basement the Alexander Collective, and how does

DOwntown • 912.349.1707

it work?

It’s a nomination process. The previous group of officers, or the people that come to meetings, nominate the people of the group. Or someone can ask to be on the ballot. It’s an official, more low-key way of doing it. I personally just got nominated by somebody that was here. It’s been a little rocky this past year, because I was away with one of the other officers at Lacoste in the fall. The other officers were super proactive at keeping it up. I think it’s hard keeping everyone on the same page. Everyone has their own lives. That’s the basis of Alexander Collective. It first started with Ben Tollefson. He along with other students was proactive in getting the Collective started and making the official club when he was a student. He mostly started every week with peer critiques, not having a professor around, student-run. People could get the vocabulary if they want to critique work. The idea is that he’s curatorial now, so it worked for him. That’s what it’s been like for a couple years: a critique every week, meeting, doing art swaps and trading work.

4. What will the salon show be like?

Right now, we’ve got about 12 students. Some have submitted more than one [piece]. The limit is up to five. It just comes down to, you get a piece in the show, it’s just based on size and how much we get for the show. You rank your work. Which one

do you prefer? No one has really been ranking it, they’ve just been submitting it, but that’s fine too. It’ll be a volunteer install next week. People will come as they wish. I think it’s going to be a great show. I’m super pumped. It’s going to look nice and presentable; it’ll be a little organizing the pieces with each other. The past two years have been super successful. A lot of people have shown up, and I think having it be an annual thing in the spring is nice because people love going to shows this time of year.

5. Tell me about your work.

I do construction-based material work. I spent a lot of time growing up working with my father and right now I’m kind of looking back on that and understanding how important it was for my family. It’s easier for me to become more personal and attached to the work, and it comes out more fluidly. It’s a lot of minimal gestures to change the surface or the reality of something. What is true in a space versus what will make you think again about where you are—that sort of conscious experience. CS The Third Annual Salon Show is May 11 at Fab’rik.

TONGUE: OPEN MIC & MUSIC SHOW WED., MAY 15 | 8 PM | $8

WHEN Hannah Wolf was in third grade, she was diagnosed with dyslexia. “One of my teachers was like, ‘Something’s off,’” remembers Wolf. Her parents put her in tutoring to help with her schoolwork, and Wolf began to channel her feelings into drawings. Those drawings have become Wolf’s latest body of work, “Decoding,” that she’ll exhibit this Friday at The Space Between gallery. The title of the show refers to a technique used by people with dyslexia to separate a word to be able to understand it. Wolf took her childhood drawings and replicated them in painting, creating a childlike, innocent feeling. “Some of the lined paper paintings are actual things I’ve written in journal, and others are phrases that stuck out to me as a kid that I never understood,” Wolf

remembers. “‘Clouds don’t move.’ Someone told that to me and I thought about it and was like, that doesn’t make sense.” This body of work began last year. “This past summer I started going through documents my mom had saved from the years, and I was thinking, ‘These are really interesting! I should explore this more,’” says Wolf. “Then it turned into recreating them, like copying them onto canvas and seeing the different techniques I would use. It was funny because at first, I had a flower painting and I was using a source image of flowers, so it was interesting to kind of reduce all my techniques I’ve learned from SCAD, like regressing and going back.” While Wolf’s subject matter is from her childhood, her painting technique is mature and thoughtful, using a light pink tone to convey innocence and sensitivity. “I started using the pink background; the first painting I did exploring this was using pink,” remembers Wolf. “And I’m like, ‘Okay, why do I keep using pink for

my background color?’ It’s sensitivity and this idea of a sensitive subject, but also I was called sensitive as a kid or that I was emotional or whatever. I feel like I need to keep exploring it. I’m pulling more towards using more language, actual words, actual text and potentially using books.” After high school, Wolf went to a high school for students with learning differences, which made a huge difference for her. “I would hope that [visitors] would ask questions,” says Wolf. “My big thing is asking questions about the education system and this singular learning platform. Not everybody learns the exact same, so I think it’s important to make sure to be patient with people when you’re trying to teach them something. Sometimes they’re not going to get it on the first try.” CS “Decoding” takes place Fri., May 10 at 6 p.m. at The Space Between, located at 203 E. 39th St. Wolf will give an artist talk Sat., May 11 at 1 p.m.

Forsyth Farm Picnic at Roberds Dairy site continues to satisfy

BY LINDY MOODY MANY Savannahians are unaware that a large dairy farm once operated behind Tennessee Avenue. But for many locals, like myself, the piece of property that used

to be the Roberds Dairy Farm has served as a historic and memorable addition to the city. Where cows once roamed, locals now play. I myself have spent many hours walking my dog around the sprawling acreage. The property itself is a vast piece of land that still holds remnants of its dairy days, including the original dairy processing building and fenced-in fields.  The once abandoned dairy plant now

holds the work of sculptor Matt Toole. A portion of the field is occupied by the bounty of Victory Gardens, and you can even find Pegasus Riding Academy hosting classes there. For others this space has served as a unique place to take pictures, take a walk, or even lay to rest the dog that you used to walk around the marsh riddled property. The Forsyth Farmers’ Market is another organization that has added to the value of the old Roberds Dairy Farm. Once a year the Forsyth Farmers’ Market hosts a fundraiser event in the fields of the beautiful farm—The Forsyth Farm Picnic.  I first discovered the Forsyth Farm Picnic after being handed a flyer at the Forsyth Farmers’ Market several years ago, I purchased a ticket as soon as I got home and put away my groceries. 

And since first attending the event, I make a point to calendar the gathering as soon as the dates come up on the website. I spoke with the Executive Director of the Forsyth Farmers’ Market, Jeb Bush, to learn more about the once-a-year event I look forward to so much.  The Farm Picnic is a yearly event that was created to support and raise money for the mission of the Forsyth Farmers’ Market. Although the money raised from ticket sales benefits the local market, the small price of the ticket makes it feels as though you are actually gaining all of the benefit. For a small ticket fee guests get to spend an afternoon on a picnic blanket eating local food, sipping local beer, and listening to local music.  As Bush explains it, “The picnic started

five years ago as special event for the ‘friends of the market.’ However, we felt like this was not being inclusive to the community. We changed it during the second year to be open to everyone. This will be our fifth year.” The first thing I do when I arrive is scope out the perfect shaded spot to spread out my blanket, it is usually close to the music. This year the band was The Hypnotics. I then grab an ice cold beer to sip while I wait in line for food, which runs out ratherly quickly. The line for food was just as long as the sprawling line of food. Picnicgoers are given a wide range of options from well established restaurants around town.  Bush says it best: “The food is always the highlight of this event. There are 11 different restaurants participating this year. We have El Coyote,The Grey, Pacci, Atlantic, Husk, Cha Bella, Green Truck Pub, Kayak Cafe, Sentient Bean,  Bull Street Taco, and Savannah Square Pops. We also have the local cupcake brigade bringing great cupcakes.” Come for the charity, sit for the music, and stay for the food. At this small local event it is easy to get lost in the breezy weather of spring, sitting chatting with your friends, and eating farm fresh food.  There is one criteria for a restaurant to be featured, Bush says. “All of the restaurants that are participating are farm to table.” It’s difficult not to get one of everything, and truly the only thing that stopped me was the loss of available room on my plate. Options included carnitas from El Coyote, fried rice that was peppered with fresh farm vegetables, gooey macaroni and cheese, vinegar soaked greens, tofu with an orange glaze, mushroom pate on toast, three types of fresh baked bread, a much needed light salad, and decadent cupcakes.  Even though there was plenty of sweets to go around, I could help myself but grab a

locally handmade popsicle from Savannah Square Pops. This year’s options included their Milk N’ Honey, Tart Lemonade, Strawberry Balsamic, Black Cherry Peach, Cookies & Cream, Peach Mango, and Strawberry Lemonade. Without thought, I ordered a Milk N’ Honey, the perfect silky sweet balance to my tangy sangria. Brighter Day provided fruit for red sangria, easy for sipping under the moss laden trees that surround the bustling cow pasture.  Service Brewery, as they have for the past few picnics, serviced patrons with their locally brewed beers. The selection was between one of their fundamental brews, the Ground Pounder pale ale, and a brand new Research and Development peanut butter banana beer that featured cayenne, toasted coriander, and lime.  Service Brewery has been supporting the Farm Picnic for sometime, so selecting the Picnic’s featured beer was a no brainer. Even Miss Zoe Dog and Sophie, their Instagram-famous pups, made it out to the Picnic to hang out with all of the patrons of the festival.  For non-drinkers, this year Perc Cold Brew was available along with tea and lemonade.  If you did not get enough doggo kisses from Miss Zoe, there were plenty of goats hopping around the field. Bootleg Farm, a local goat farm that creates their own artisan cheeses, set up a mini petting zoo with several off their farm friends.  Support from the city along with time has only made the picnic swell in size. This year grew even larger and featured kids crafts from Loop It Up Savannah and hayrides from Pegasus Riding Academy. Every year I attend the event only seems to grow in scale. If you missed this year’s Picnic, you can mark your calendar for next April and buy tickets online through www.forsythfarmersmarket.com

Snug in a pub

Prohibition Savannah’s snugs offer a nostalgic glimpse into one aspect BY JIM MOREKIS

CONNECT SAVANNAH | MAY 8 - 14, 2019

WORLD Cocktail Day is Monday, May 13. One of the most unique ways to enjoy a cocktail is at Prohibition Savannah, in one of their “snugs.” “They are pretty unique,” says Sydney Moreano, a spokesperson for the restaurant group that runs Prohibition Savannah and its sister location in Charleston. “There aren’t a lot of snugs in the world, especially in the U.S.” A snug is a throwback to a different era when not everyone wanted to be seen enjoying a libation – though of course every snug at Prohibition is open for anyone to enjoy. “It’s an interesting part of the history of drinking culture,” says Moreano. “Back in the day, the snug was only open to groups like women, the clergy or police to drink and have a social experience, but a more private one. Those groups would sort of hide away in the snugs. In Ireland back in the day, many police were teetotalers and there was much internal pressure on them to stay away from alcohol – hence the snug’s appeal. While women were not legally barred from drinking in Irish pubs, there was much social stigma attached to their imbibing, and Irish women were frequent visitors to the snugs. If you’ve watched Peaky Blinders, you know the snug is right next to the bar – in their case it’s where the Shelby family met to discuss very private business. “It’s connected to the bar, but you can order from the bar without anyone seeing you,” Moreano says. In the Prohibition era in the U.S. , snugs in Irish-style pubs and speakeasies took on added meaning as signifiers of the forbidden, hidden nature of alcohol consumption. By the ‘60s and ‘70s, snugs had gone out of fashion as many of the old social taboos were in decline. In the modern era, snugs such as the ones at Prohibition Savannah are making a comeback for their nostaligic appeal. “A lot of bars and pubs have modernized their old snugs. In many places, it’s trendy to go visit them,” Moreano says. For World Cocktail Day, Prohibition Savannah is offering their special $5 Irish coffees from Happy Hour at 4 pm onward through the evening. CS

BY CHARLES “BO” BOWEN AS every parent knows, children’s fairy tales and fables are often founts of considerable insight and wisdom. “The Emperor’s New Clothes” sheds considerable light on politicians who vainly strut on the state and national stage. “Cinderella” contains valuable lessons regarding the mistreatment of the poor. It is one of Aesop’s Fables that is most directly relevant to today’s headlines: “The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs. The story recounts the tale of a farmer who owned a goose that laid a solid gold egg every morning. While these eggs made the farmer a wealthy man, he still wanted more.

would ban abortion as soon as a doctor can detect a fetal heartbeat, which happens around six weeks into a pregnancy. This law would be one of the most extreme abortion bans in the country, particularly considering that most women do not even realize they are pregnant at six weeks. As of this writing, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp was expected to sign the bill this past Tuesday. There is almost unanimous agreement, even among its proponents, that the law is patently unconstitutional. It is specifically designed to attempt to get the question of abortion rights back before a U.S. Supreme Court that is now stacked with conservatives. The real goal is to overturn Roe vs. Wade, the landmark 1974 decision that legalized abortion nationwide. But it is a long way to the Supreme Court, and every effort to pass a similar bill in other states

The state of Georgia has its own such rare and valuable goose. It is our film and television industry, and we have fed and cared for it well. “Then one day the idea came to him that he could get all the golden eggs at once by killing the goose and cutting it open. But when the deed was done, not a single golden egg did he find and his precious goose was dead.” The state of Georgia has its own such rare and valuable goose. It is our film and television industry, and we have fed and cared for it well. Due to a combination of economic incentives, workforce development, and commitment to infrastructure, Georgia has become one of the most preferred destinations in the world for film and television productions. Over the past several years, these productions have had an economic impact in our state of roughly $10 billion annually. Locally, we hosted approximately 200 professional film and television productions in 2018 that accounted for $250 million in direct spending in Chatham County alone. The question our state faces now, however, is whether the passage of Georgia’s “heartbeat bill” may result in a costly boycott by the film and television industry. Such a boycott has been threatened by several actors and professional organizations. For those unfamiliar, the proposed law

(18 at last count) has been struck down before it has reached that level. It is this legal layer of protection that I believe is likely to temper any threatened boycott from the entertainment industry. While there will certainly be action and anger from some, it is unlikely to result in an industry-wide consensus to boycott the state of Georgia unless and until a fetal heartbeat bill were to survive the inevitable court challenge and go into effect. By way of analogy, imagine if the Savannah City Council enacted a local ordinance stating that no one over six feet tall was allowed to own a local business. While such an action would obviously inspire immediate anger, most reasonable people would understand that due to our system of legal checks and balances, there would be no need for panic because of the certainty that such an unenforceable ordinance would be struck down by the courts. As far as the heartbeat bill, the vast majority of the entertainment industry will likely wait and see what happens. But they will absolutely be taking notes. CS Charles J.

LONG SHOT

/// (out of four) Long Shot opens with a scene in which Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen), a rabble-rousing reporter for an alternative publication, has managed to infiltrate a meeting of neoNazi skinheads all proudly displaying their swastika tattoos. Believing Fred to be one of them, the white supremacists are shocked to soon learn that he’s not only a journalist but also a Jew. It’s an entertaining scene charged with real comic bite, but the manner in which it ends feels a bit too flat, too facile, too toothless. That’s a pattern that’s repeated throughout Long Shot, an often uproarious comedy that repeatedly lets the air seep out of its irresistible premise. This is especially true during the second half, when the story becomes even more outlandish and the gags become ever more crude. It’s not uncommon to see Rogen in this sort of material, but Charlize Theron is another matter. Still, the movie wouldn’t be half as interesting without her involvement; what’s more, she and Rogen prove to be a potent comic team, even if the particulars of their roles are never entirely convincing. Theron plays Charlotte Field, who’s about to resign from her position as Secretary of State and announce her intention of running for President of the United States. While the polls reveal that her numbers are exceptional when it comes to such keywords as “charisma” and “poise,” they’re a wee bit lacking in the field of “humor.” After a chance meeting with Fred Flarsky, who in an earlier decade was the boy she used to babysit as a teenager, she decides to hire him as one of her speechwriters. Her other staffers object to this addition, but she has more pressing matters that demand her focus, among them putting the finishing touches on her environmental platform and steering clear of the sleazy head of a major network known for its fake news (that’s an unrecognizable Andy Serkis basically playing Rupert Murdoch). As long as Fred and Charlotte remain buddies and colleagues, Long Shot has a shot at hitting all the bases. Unfortunately, the unlikely romance between the pair takes center stage during the second half, and this in turn leads to a series of predicaments that feel more natural in a ribald movie teaming Rogen with frequent costar James Franco than one pairing him with Theron. On top of this, there’s also an odd and unfortunate sequence that has a bit of that icky “There are good people on both sides” sentiment — a forced moment that was perhaps demanded by a studio nervous about losing potential moviegoers wary of the leftist standings of Rogen and Theron. Yet even if its political commentary is

ultimately no deeper than a tea cup saucer, Long Shot gets a lot of mileage out of its D.C.-insider milieu, with Rogen amplifying the laughs with his fish-out-of-water routine and Theron finding humor in some unexpected moments (her phone conversation with a petty dictator is a highlight). Indeed, the film’s comedic content is particularly on point, and the cereal-related quip is likely to remain the funniest line I’ll hear in all of 2019 cinema. That’s worthy of some respect, methinks.

THE INTRUDER

/ One of my post-college roommates had a friend who one night decided to impress the ladies in our midst by ripping open a beer can with his teeth. Being of the redneck persuasion, this probably seemed like a sensible way to show off his manly manliness. Alas, while performing the feat, he ended up slashing open his hand with the razor-sharp edge of the now torn-asunder can. As others rushed to get him towels and bandages, I could only sit there and wonder how we were going to get the blood out of the carpet. It’s not that I’m heartless, mind you — I still shed tears when reading stories about mass shootings, abused animals, and children detained at the border — it’s just that it was hard for me to sympathize with someone who was basically an unrepentant dumb-ass. And a similar feeling settled on me as I watched The Intruder, a terrible movie that ranks way down there on the homeinvasion scale (below Cold Creek Manor, below Unlawful Entry, maybe even below The Strangers). If the protagonists in this film were any more dense, they would only exist as a thick fog. The pair in question are Scott and Annie Howard (Michael Ealy and Meagan Good), well-to-do San Franciscans who opt to buy a house further out in the country. Annie falls in love with the $3-million-plus house owned by Charlie Peck (Dennis Quaid),

who claims he’s planning to move to Florida to live with his grown daughter right after he sells the property. But after the Howards purchase the home and the ample land surrounding it, they find they can’t get rid of Charlie. He shows up unexpected and uninvited at all hours of the day and night. Clearly, there’s something off about this guy, but Annie treats him like family, inviting him to Thanksgiving dinner and allowing him to help out with the Christmas decorations. Scott is far more wary around the man, although even he thinks nothing of allowing his wife to spend plenty of time home alone while he’s off working and playing in the big city. The Intruder proves to be a thriller so obvious that viewers could dot every narrative i and cross every fictional t before the screenplay was even written. (As one example, there’s a reason a linen closet is  the focus of attention in roughly 326 scenes, and it’s not to showcase the folding techniques of the inhabitants.) But it’s the imbecilic nature of the Howards that really grates on the nerves, with viewers asking all the obvious questions that these married twits never even think to formulate. Admittedly, it’s a pet peeve, but it’s generally impossible for me to throw my support behind protagonists who have even less common sense than a newborn kitten. As the neighborly nut, Quaid starts off fine before exploding in full psycho mode, complete with Jack-Nicholson-as-JackTorrance quips (“Lights out!” Charlie bellows before shooting out a chandelier). Still, even though he’s the villain, we’re obviously meant to admire him as he ultimately teaches these soft city slickers a thing or two. An outdoorsy type, he lives for his collection of shotguns (in fact, his introduction in the film finds him blowing away a deer); conversely, Scott refuses to even allow firearms on his property. So guess who’s brandishing a shotgun before the

UGLYDOLLS

CONNECT SAVANNAH | MAY 8 - 14, 2019

/ One of the trailers shown before the screening of the new animated effort UglyDolls was for the upcoming Pixar release Toy Story 4. Even as someone who awarded all three previous Toy Story movies 4-star ratings and considers the trilogy one of the greatest in Hollywood history, I’m not sure the world needs a Toy Story 4. After sitting through the main attraction, I’m sure the world needed an UglyDolls 1 even less. UglyDolls is based on a line of plush toys created back in 2001, and it was a logical option for an industry that has already produced movies based on plastic dolls, board games, video games, and even bubble gum cards. Furthermore, it hits all the beats expected of a film meant to entertain very small children and absolutely no one else. There are the colorfully rendered characters, the blandly pleasing pop songs, and the usual message of loving yourself while also loving everyone else. The only thing missing seems to be a reason to watch this when there are roughly 1,000 other kid flicks out there with similar themes and more compelling narratives, characters and visual designs. With a story concocted by Robert Rodriguez (more in Spy Kids than Machete mode, obviously), this centers on Moxy (voiced by Kelly Clarkson), a misshapen doll who lives in Uglyville but dreams of being the proud property of a little girl. She and a few other misfits make it to the Institute of Perfection, which is where they learn that only beautiful toys make it into the real world — and even then only after rigorous training. They decide to take a shot anyway, but they’re undermined at every turn by Lou (Nick Jonas), the charismatic but duplicitous leader of the Institute. For a major ($45 million budget) theatrical animated feature, UglyDolls looks awfully cheap, to the degree that one wonders why its makers didn’t hire that Game of Thrones cinematographer to plunge the entire picture into indecipherable darkness. Some inventive touches do manage to work their way into the proceedings (I like how buttons seem to be the form of currency in Uglyville), but for the most part, this is merely a shameless cash-grab that also displays no shame in grabbing from other toon flicks. The “Everything Is Awesome” opening is borrowed from The LEGO Movie, while the climactic incinerator scene is out30 right stolen from Toy Story 3. It’s not the

AVENGERS: ENDGAME

/// (out of four) Let’s be real here. Avengers: Endgame could have been nothing more than three hours of, say, Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) teaching Nebula (Karen Gillan) how to play Paper Football and it would still gross a kazillion dollars and be crowned the greatest superhero movie ever made. After all, when it comes to Marvel material, hope and hype eventually become the same thing, an impenetrable fortress of elevated expectations designed to ward off any hints of criticism or feelings of disappointment, particularly within oneself. And if that nudging of negativity comes from someone else, it’s even worse. There’s a reason fans of superhero flicks have become their own entity, unlike any other group of moviegoers past or present. If you’re one of the 16 (out of 356) critics on Rotten Tomatoes who gave Roma a rotten review, who cares? If you’re one of the three (out of 265) critics who ruined Eighth Grade’s perfect 100% RT score, nobody bats an eye. But if you’re one of the 19 (out of 332) critics who trashed The Dark Knight, brace yourself for the death threats. And if you’re one of the 64 (out of 427) reviewers who “splatted” Avengers: Infinity War, prepare to be despised with a passion greater than that usually reserved for terrorists and child molesters (and if you’re female, take that anger and quadruple it; silly female brains!). It’s a lamentable facet of modern society — one clearly heightened by the omniscience of the Internet — and it’s embarrassing for those who can appreciate comic-book flicks yet still realize it’s OK to accept differing opinions and justified criticisms without immediately wanting to shoot the messenger. So take a deep breath, put away those pistols, and behold Avengers: Endgame. As the culmination of the 22-film saga collectively falling under the Marvel Cinematic Universe umbrella, it’s a staggering achievement, as impressively linked in its world-building and its mythmaking as the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings sagas.

Is it the best superhero movie ever made? In the immortal words of Balki Bartokomous, “Don’t be ridiculous.” It’s the longest superhero movie. It’s possibly the most expensive superhero movie. It’s certainly the most superhero movie. But there are at least a dozen supersagas superior to this one, some residing within the MCU itself (the Captain America titles The Winter Soldier and Civil War, Black Panther, and the very first Avengers flick, if we’re naming names). And as far as comic-based stories with similar themes and execution, it’s no better or worse than the exemplary nonMCU effort X-Men: Days of Future Past. Nevertheless, this ranks among the upper echelons of this particularly robust genre, and it closes out this phase of the Marvel dynasty in rousing fashion. (Yes, technically, the upcoming Spider-Man: Far from Home is part of this phase, but this one feels like The End.) Spoilers would be appreciated by absolutely no one, but there’s certainly no problem in relating the opening events, which occur immediately following the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War. As we all remember from last summer’s theatrical showings (as well as subsequent visits on Blu-ray or DVD), Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin) had acquired all six Infinity Stones that were required for him to wipe out 50 percent of the universe’s population. That meant a lot of superheroes went up in smoke, with the remaining good guys — an assortment that includes original Avengers Iron Man, Steve Rogers/ Captain America (Chris Evans), Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Bruce Banner/Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Thor/just Thor (Chris Hemsworth) — feeling the weight of their failure. But here comes Captain Marvel (Brie Larsen) to save the day — and the universe! Right? Well, not exactly. To say that Avengers: Endgame is a movie of many surprises is putting it mildly. Certainly, there are some expected character beats, some predictable visual cues, some anticipated speechifying. But these bits come across less as obvious annoyances and more as savvy fan service, right in line with keeping customers satisfied. At any rate, they’re quickly

surpassed by the unexpected directions taken by this picture. Only an ostrich wouldn’t know that some permanent sacrifices are required to defeat Thanos, but the guessing game will leave just as many viewers right as wrong. Likewise, the extent of Thanos’ evil deed affects the surviving heroes in different ways, but the identities of those who crumble and capitulate might shock. And even given the premise, the last movie I ever expected to hear name-dropped in an MCU effort (a John Cusack flick) gets a shout-out, so kudos for that. At three hours, Avengers: Endgame never wears out its welcome, though one of its many journeys does feel like one too many, particularly since it results in not one but two ridiculous coincidences. The erratic CGI wizardry that allows actors to appear as their younger selves seemed to have finally turned the corner with the excellent de-aging effects witnessed in Captain Marvel, but here there’s an unfortunate reversal of fortune, with one actor looking like a cut-rate waxworks version of himself. And let’s not even get started on the number of plotholes that are a direct result of the storyline’s hopscotching (ones prominent enough to make me consider dropping the rating a half-star). Still, what matters most — and what elevates the entire picture — are the emotional beats. Those looking for the usual repetitive fight sequences that often clog the pores of superhero flicks will be disappointed, since there’s truly only one gargantuan battle royale. Wisely, the focus is instead on the human (and alien) element, with many of the series stars turning in some of their best work. Johansson, always a highlight in this franchise, sports a particularly haunted demeanor that’s almost startling in its rawness, while Gillan develops Nebula in a manner that was previously unimaginable. As Scott Lang/Ant-Man, Paul Rudd provides some much needed levity — a scene in which he’s mocked by Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) left me laughing the hardest — while Evans again embodies everything we find noble in our fellow humans. And then there’s Downey, who hasn’t been this affecting in the role in quite some time. Brittle, harsh, and faced with impossible choices, his Tony Stark reclaims his position as — with apologies to Cap — the original Avenger, the first superhero in this 11-year-long, 22-film-spanning saga. Watching Tony, Steve, Natasha, Bruce, Thor and Clint together for what might be the very last time — well, it’s enough to make a grown fan cry.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Time to shake things up! In the next three weeks, I invite you to try at least three of the following experiments. 1. See unusual sights in familiar situations. 2. Seek out new music that both calms you and excites you. 3. Get an inspiring statue or image of a favorite deity or hero. 4. Ask for a message from the person you will be three years from now. 5. Use your hands and tongue in ways you don’t usually use them. 6. Go in quest of a cathartic release that purges frustration and rouses holy passion. 7. Locate the sweet spot where deep feeling and deep thinking overlap.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

According to science writer Sarah Zielinski in *Smithsonian* magazine, fireflies produce the most efficient light on planet Earth. Nearly 100 percent of the energy produced by the chemical reaction inside the insect’s body is emitted as a brilliant glow. With that in mind, I propose that you regard the firefly as your spirit creature in the coming weeks. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you, too, will be a dynamic and proficient generator of luminosity. For best results, don’t tone down your brilliance, even if it illuminates shadows people are trying to hide.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

36

Here’s a message from author Susan J. Elliott: “This is not your week to run the Universe. Next week is not looking so good either.” Now here’s a message from me: Elliott’s revelation is very good news! Since you won’t have to worry about trying to manage and fine-tune the Universe, you can focus all your efforts on your own self-care. And the coming weeks will be a favorable time to do just that. You’re due to dramatically upgrade your understanding of what you need to feel healthy and happy, and then take the appropriate measures to put your new insights into action.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

The next three weeks will be an excellent time to serve as your own visionary

prophet and dynamic fortune-teller. The predictions and conjectures you make about your future destiny will have an 85-percent likelihood of being accurate. They will also be relatively free of fear and worries. So I urge you to give your imagination permission to engage in fun fantasies about what’s ahead for you. Be daringly optimistic and exuberantly hopeful and brazenly self-celebratory.

BY ROB BREZSNY

beautyandtruth@freewillastrology.com

by what happened to you once upon a time. I’d love for you to no longer have to answer to decayed traditions and outmoded commitments and lost causes. I’d love for you to escape the pull of memories that tend to drag you back toward things that can’t be changed and don’t matter any more.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Leo poet Stanley Kunitz told his students, “You must be very careful not to deprive the poem of its wild origin.” That’s useful advice for anyone who spawns anything, not just poets. There’s something unruly and unpredictable about every creative idea or fresh perspective that rises up in us. Do you remember when you first felt the urge to look for a new job or move to a new city or search for a new kind of relationship? Wildness was there at the inception. And you needed to stay in touch with the wildness so as to follow through with practical action. That’s what I encourage you to do now. Reconnect with the wild origins of the important changes you’re nurturing.

“Desire is a profoundly upsetting force,” writes author Elspeth Probyn. “It may totally rearrange what we think we want. Desire skews plans and sets forth unthought-of possibilities.” In my opinion, Probyn’s statements are half-true. The other half of the truth is that desire can also be a profoundly healing and rejuvenating force, and for the same reasons: it rearranges what we think we want, alters plans, and unleashes unthought-of possibilities. How does all this relate to you? From what I can tell, you are now on the cusp of desire’s two overlapping powers. What happens next could be upsetting or healing, disorienting or rejuvenating. If you’d like to emphasize the healing and rejuvenating, I suggest you treat desire as a sacred gift and a blessing.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

I have no complaints about the measures you’ve taken recently to push past unnecessary limits and to break outworn taboos. In fact, I celebrate them. Keep going! You’ll be better off without those decaying constraints. Soon you’ll begin using all the energy you have liberated and the spaciousness you have made available. But I do have one concern: I wonder if part of you is worried that you have been too bold and have gone too far. To that part of you I say: No! You haven’t been too bold. You haven’t gone too far.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

“Dreamt of a past that frees its prisoners.” So wrote Meena Alexander in her poem “Question Time.” I’d love for you to have that experience in the coming weeks. I’d love for you be released from the karma of your history so that you no longer have to repeat old patterns or feel weighed down

Coastal Heritage Society, a local nonprofit with more than forty years of museum management experience, began managing operations of The Society of the Cincinnati in the State of Georgia’s Harper Fowlkes House, an 1842 Greek Revival mansion located on Orleans Square. Light refreshments and beverages will be served in the garden. The event is free to attend, though donations are welcome. Sun., May 12, 2:30 p.m. Harper Fowlkes House, 230 Barnard Street. HEALTHCARE + SERVICE DESIGN AT SCAD Thu., May 9, 2 p.m. SCAD Savannah, 516 Drayton St.

“So much of what we learn about love is taught by people who never really loved us.” My Sagittarian friend Ellen made that sad observation. Is it true for you? Ellen added the following thoughts: so much of what we learn about love is taught by people who were too narcissistic or wounded to be able to love very well; and by people who didn’t have many listening skills and therefore didn’t know enough about us to love us for who we really are; and by people who love themselves poorly and so of course find it hard to love anyone else. Is any of this applicable to what you have experienced, Sagittarius? If so, here’s an antidote that I think you’ll find effective during the next seven weeks: identify the people who have loved you well and the people who might love you well in the future—and then vow to learn all you can from them.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Capricorn fantasy novelist Laini Taylor creates imaginary worlds where heroines use magic and wiles to follow their bliss while wrangling with gods and rascals. In describing her writing process, she says, “Like a magpie, I am a scavenger of shiny things: fairy tales, dead languages, weird folk beliefs, and fascinating religions.” She adds, “I have plundered tidbits of history and lore to build something new, using only the parts that light my mind on fire.” I encourage you to adopt her strategies for your own use in the coming weeks. Be alert for gleaming goodies and tricky delicacies and alluring treats. Use them to create new experiences that thrill your imagination. I believe the coming weeks will be an excellent time to use your magic and wiles to follow your bliss while wrangling with gods and rascals.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

“I was always asking for the specific thing that wasn’t mine,” wrote poet Joanne Kyger. “I wanted a haven that wasn’t my own.” If there is any part of you that resonates with that defeatist perspective, Aquarius, now is an excellent time to begin outgrowing or transforming it. I guarantee you that you’ll have the potency you need to retrain yourself: so that you will more and more ask for specific things that can potentially be yours; so that you will more and more want a haven that can be your own.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

I’m not a fan of nagging. I don’t like to be nagged and I scrupulously avoid nagging others. And yet now I will break my own rules so as to provide you with your most accurate and helpful horoscope. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you aren’t likely to get what you truly need and deserve in the coming days unless you engage in some polite, diplomatic nagging. So see what you can do to employ nagging as a graceful, even charming art. For best results, infuse it with humor and playfulness.
