Restoration on track

Preservation team works to save buildings at the Roundhouse Railroad Museum DAY BY DAY, the Roundhouse Railroad Museum is carefully being restored. It is a massive project, one requiring skill and extensive knowledge of historic preservation. Virtually everything is done in a way that preserves as much of the original structures as possible. The Coastal Heritage Society, which manages the site, has put together a 30-member preservation team comprising mostly Savannah College of Art and Design historic preservation graduates and students. Coastal Heritage Society Marketing Director MIchael Jordan says the complex is unique. “It was started as one large complex,” he says. “At the time, it was revolutionary to build it all at once.” The Roundhouse Railroad Museum today is the most extensive historic railroad district in the world. It has been named a National Historic Landmark. The complex also was unique because of its technology, which was advanced for those times. It boasted a 40,000 gallon water tank over a natural spring, which meant flushing privies could be installed. The Central Railroad and Canal Co. was chartered in 1833 to give Savannahians a way to export local crops, such as cotton. The canal never materialized, but the railroad grew rapidly. Two years later, the first structures were built at what is now the Roundhouse Railroad Museum. By 1859, the Central Railroad and Banking Co. of Georgia had built the longest continuous railroad under one management in the world. There were 190 miles of rail, and rolling stock that included more than

Above left, a view of the so-called Paint Shop; other shots are of various SCAD preservation students at work on various phases of restoration (all photos courtesy of the Coastal Heritage Society) 50 locomotives and 500 cars, making it the second largest holding in the South. The entire complex was built over a historic site -the area where the Siege of Savannah was fought during the Revolutionary War. The battle was fought on Oct. 9, 1779 on the slope in front of the Spring Hill Redoubt, an earthen fortification used by the British. American troops, aided by the French and Haitians, fought the British in the second bloodiest battle of the war. Seven thousand soldiers were involved, and 850 of them were killed or wounded, including Count Casimir Pulaski and Sgt. William Jasper. Today, the railroad complex is considered historically important in its own right and has been designated the Georgia State Museum of Railroad History. Thirteen of its original buildings are still standing. During the Civil War, most of the railroad’s rolling stock was released by government order to the Confederate military. William T. Sherman’s soldiers destroyed as many rail connections as they could by heating the rails on fires and wrapping them around trees and telegraph poles. These “Sherman’s neckties,” as they were called, were irreparable in the field. When Sherman arrived in Savannah, all the remaining rail and rolling stock at the Roundhouse were destroyed, but the buildings at the complex were spared.

After the Civil War, the rail connections were replaced and the railroad was restored and expanded. Nearly 1,500 miles of rail were added. In 1893, the Central purchased the fastest train in the country, the Nancy Hanks. In 1895, the railroad became the Central of Georgia Railway, which reached its peak in the early 1920s. The railroad was the largest employer in the area for more than a century. During the Depression, the company went bankrupt, but operations continued. However, with the advent of diesel engines in the last 1940s, the company began to fade. The Roundhouse was not conducive to diesel service, and most of the diesel trains were sent to Macon. “When the steam engines were replaced by diesel, this was obsolete,” Jordan says. “As of 1963, it was derelict. Southern Railway put hundreds of people out of jobs.” That was the year the Southern Railway purchased the Central and closed the shops. The site sat vacant until 1989, when it came under the management of the Coastal Heritage Society. Covering two blocks, the buildings are being restored as a museum. Historic rolling stock is restored in the site’s Back Shops. The 30-person team doing the renovation is comprised of Savannah College of Art and Design historic preservation graduates and students. “This was a ruin when they got here,” Jordan says of the Master

point that they offer little support. Koller points to one of the column bases. “There is only 30 percent of the original column left to support the roof,” he says. “A catastrophic event could cause it to collapse.” This is not taken lightly. Workers leave the building any time a storm approaches. Replacing the columns has been somewhat difficult. Over the years, the size of similar support beams has changed. Koller says it is a challenge to find replacement bases and columns that match the originals. “We are completely replacing about half a dozen columns,” he says. “Where the roof drains, the seal is so badly deteriorated, we are having to replace the support beams.” A large forklift is used to hold the roof up while a column is placed. Despite the difficulty of the restoration project in this building, Koller says it is hoped the work will be completed in about a year. Visitors’ eyes are drawn to the graffiti that covers the walls. “Over the last 25 years, it’s been primarily SCAD students coming in and painting on the walls,” Koller says. “It’s been going on so long, they think it’s permitted, but it’s not,” he says.

Restoring a window “We’ve been trying really hard to keep people out of the building.” An electronic security system now helps to keep trespassers out of the building. Yet the graffiti is part of the building’s uniqueness. “We are debating whether or not to preserve the graffiti because it is part of the building’s history,” Koller says. “Some of it is actually very good. We may leave part of it.” Although the original paint is long gone, the walls were once painted white. “It is a beautiful building,” Koller says.

The building has a sawtooth roof, an unusual design design. “It is one of only three buildings like this in Savannah,” Koller says. Skylights were placed inside the “teeth” of the roof, making the building a “daylight factory.” “All the light was provided by skylights,” Koller says. “There was no electricity.” Eventually, the building will be used as a museum. “It will be a youth museum,” Jordan says. “That’s a long way down the road. “For now, we are just trying to preserve the building.” he says, adding that it is an urgent matter. “Even now, when the wind blows strong, everyone gets out,” he says. The nearby Coach Shops may someday house the CSS Georgia, a Confederate ironclad that now lies in the Savannah River directly across from Old Fort Jackson. As some structures are being renovated, another will be created. Plans for the proposed Battlefield Park call for the reconstruction of the Spring Hill Redoubt. For now, the work is on hold as one more archaeological dig is undertaken at

the site. Archaeologist Rita Elliott says she will be looking for lots of artifacts, including items from the War of 1812. This is not the first time work on the park has been delayed. An environmental cleanup had to be conducted at the site to remove lead and arsenic from the soil, industrial pollutants leftover from the railroad days. Battlefield Park project manager Brian White says research will help with reconstruction of the Spring Hill Redoubt. The original redoubt is believed to be somewhere under Louisville Road, but the reconstructed redoubt will be placed as close to the original site as possible, at the intersection of Louisville Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. White says the redoubt will be a hybrid between similar structures from that era and the descriptions of the redoubt in historic records. Original plans called for the redoubt to be completed by Oct. 9, the 226th anniversary of the Siege of Savannah. Because of the archaeological dig, construction will be delayed. “We have a general idea of how it was constructed,” White says. “We’re hoping it will be finished the first week in November.” ◗

Editor, After walking around town today I saw several places with graffiti on the walls. I would just like to ask the person[s] doing this: Why? Are you really that bored or just that stupid? This kind of act to public property is a huge display of ignorance! Do you really think we want to see this garbage everywhere? It is not even creative nor is it an art form! How low does your self-esteem have to be to create your own billboards everywhere? Your attempts would be laughable except for the unattractiveness of it and the taxpayers’ money being spent on cleaning it up. I suggest if you think you’re that talented, put your graffiti in a sketchbook and send it to an art school. I have probably already given you more credit and attention than you deserve; so in closing please stop vandalizing the city of Savannah and get a life! Joel Ring

Boycott the pumps Sept. 30 Editor, I am asking everyone in the United States to please stay away from the gas pumps on Sept. 30, 2005. It’s an attempt to lower the gas prices. This is out of hand. And who are they to control these unbelievably high prices? So let’s together take control of this issue. If our wallets have to feel the void, well then let’s let them feel it as well. And if this doesn’t work then we will do it again. Until they lower these prices. Bobby Edwards

Editor, The letters of your Aug. 10 issue were insulting to those of a different opinion, in this case Elizabeth Arata Faris (Aug. 3). It is one thing to question another writer’s views, but quite another to write in such an unpleasant manner. I have noticed a growing trend for the Letters columns in both the Savannah papers which I read to attack the writer as well as what they wrote. It seems to me that this is done to embarrass the writer, who usually has a liberal viewpoint, so that they will not write anymore. By contrast, the Atlanta daily edits out such personal exchanges, and simply gives the writers’ viewpoint. This makes for much shorter and more readable columns. No one should be attacked in this manner simply because they wrote a letter to the editor, nor do I as a reader wish to read it. But I got my daily laugh, however unintended, from the big bold former serviceman (“Intruder”) who went on and on about courage -- but did not have the guts to sign his name! Many papers do not publish anonymous letters, and I think that it is a good idea also. I heartily recommend it to you in the future, to spare us from this kind of excess. Incidentally, I am the wife of a retired serviceman and have the greatest respect for our military personnel and their families. I believe Sgt. Benderman has chosen a far more difficult path than simply waiting out his current enlistment and then getting out, and I am sure he did not make his decision as lightly as your letter writers would imply. My sympathy is also for his wife at this difficult time. Margaret W. DeBolt

about how he is inconvenienced by the war in Iraq, was a bit too much rhetoric for me. (I thought all Letters to The Editor had to be signed or the newspaper would not print it.) Oh well, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander: ‘The Char Lady of Literature’

Still not buying the bicoastal thing LAST MONTH, WHILE SPENDING a week in Aspen, hanging with the rich and famous -- or in my case, my cousin, who once played center field on some local softball team with Hunter Thompson in left and Jack Nicholson in right -- I got into conversation with someone from San Francisco, an artist who was taking a workshop in Colorado. She had moved to California from New York City, where, incidentally, she attended the School of Visual Arts. She was filled with opinions, with pronouncements, with attitude. In many cases, these are good and worthy traits. But in my mind anyone who has lived solely on the left and the right coasts, California and New York, could only be described one way. And that is bicoastal. Which is not necessarily a good thing. If this is prejudice, if I am prejudging someone without knowing them, then so be it. I’m prejudiced. And occasionally I’m irked. Because to

bicoastal people -- so my thinking goes -the whole midsection of the country, including Georgia and the State of Chatham, might as well not even be on the map. To them, we are toast, chopped liver, guacamole from a squeeze tube. We are white bread, head lettuce, packaged cheese. I tried to hold my tongue during this cocktail party in Aspen. I tried to keep the thought private. I tried to refrain. But I couldn’t. The first time Ms. New York-movedto-California said something I thought a little pretentious or snooty, I came out with it. “You think that because you’re bicoastal,” I declared. No one picked up on it, including her, because when there are six people in on a conversation -- none of us best or old friends -- everyone is so busy filling every minute with opinion and intellect to show the rest of the group how smart we are that no one does too much listening. Once again, when she said something I thought rather sweeping in its generalization, I repeated -- but this time to myself -- “You say that because you’re

bicoastal. You can’t possibly think that anything of any worth could be going on in the Midwest, the Southeast, the Upper Midwest.” The evening ended pleasantly enough. I did my best to leave them with positive images of Savannah. How a swim at high tide in the creek can leave your skin so soft you’d swear you just bathed in fabric softener. What a racket the tree frogs make at night or late in a summer afternoon. Deafening, really. The sight of an orange full moon rising over the Atlantic Ocean and, on the other side of Tybee Island, another orange orb, the sun, slipping behind the Back River. I did what I could to talk of places between New York and California, but I knew ahead of time she had never been to Door County, Wisc., would probably never visit Omaha, Neb., or Royal Oak, Mich., and probably couldn’t find Brevard, N.C., on a map. I realize there’s a little defensiveness in my posture and a little envy, too, that in some parts of the country it’s a little easier than others to state the obvious, to declare the absence of clothes on the emperor, to find like-minded people.

I also realize that no matter where you live it takes time and patience to fight the system, lots of practice to become a better painter, concentrated effort to learn Spanish. All over the country -- not just in New York or California -- six-year-olds are starting to play violin because parents know it develops good manual dexterity, 10-year-olds and 70-year-olds are making an effort to get up at 9 a.m. on Saturday to go to free art classes at local universities, 12-year-olds are swimming laps, back and forth, back and forth, and becoming great breaststrokers. I know good, creative, stimulating things can happen anywhere. On Michael Feldman’s “Whadda Ya’ Know?” radio show this week, Feldman interviewed a restaurateur who returned to his hometown to open a restaurant. “I love Iowa,” he said. “I’ve always wanted to return here.” Take that, Ms. New York-moved-toCalifornia. Someone who chooses to live in Iowa. ◗

mixed emotions about this, but guess what? My blood pressure is down and I am actually smiling instead of shaking my head in disbelief at some of the shenanigans my people get up to. I refuse to open a Savannah paper or watch the news on WTOC. I’m not interested in the Churches Fried Chicken Murder. Or the Rib Hut Slaying. Or whatever the hell is going on in Savannah. This is one blackout I won’t regret. So the first night here I head to the social hub of Sea Pines, Harbor Town. I’m not deterred that I’m without transportation. I do what any graduate of the Savannah school system would do, I steal a car. Albeit the car belongs to my parents. After parking the getaway vehicle, I stroll around Harbor Town and finally settle in at the Harbor Side Café with perfect view of the marina. A few feet from me a is a guy playing guitar and singing the Beach Boys “Surfin’ U.S.A.” I’m feeling so positively Reagan, I order my very first mint julep. This is pretty much how it will go for the next week or so. Sitting around the marina. Going out to dinner with the folks. Not a care in the world. One night I ride the trolley. If you’ve ever been overseas on holiday you might have an inkling of what I’m feeling when I spot a black family climbing aboard the trolley. You know, there you are on vacation and suddenly you run into some Americans. The spell of being on vacation is broken. You’re reluctant to say hello just in case they turn out to be the Ugly American we are warned about. But if you’re a black American you don’t have to travel the far corners of the globe to experience this phenomenon. You just have to go some place where there simply aren’t that many black people. Say an opera, a bar mitzvah, or even the beach. I suddenly remember what happened at that pool all those years ago. I decide to take a different sort of plunge. I say hello. They say hello back. We smile. The parents introduce their kids. We chit. We chat. We exchange small talk just like normal people. Eventually the trolley comes to my stop. I tell this family it was nice meeting them. And it was. Walking back to my parent’s place I have to wonder if I will ever have a similar conversation when I return to an entirely different plantation. The one with the mental, not metal, gates that keep so many people, blacks and whites, imprisoned. You know, the one we call home. Savannah. ◗

SOME SAVANNAHIANS get up at the crack of dawn. Others at the crack of ice. And far too many at the crack of crack. For the last few mornings yours truly, however, has been getting up at the crack of a whip. I guess it’s appropriate, really, since I’m back on the plantation. Now, if you think I’m somehow picking cotton at sunrise, don’t worry (and for some of you, don’t get your hopes up) -- it’s not that kind of plantation. I’m talking about my parents’ place over at Sea Pines Plantation on Hilton Head Island. What a difference a civil war makes. Anyway, the aforementioned whip is being wielded by an overbearing overseer who happens to be my mother. Mom still hasn’t broken her lifelong habit of getting up before me and yelling, “Mark! Get your bony behind out of that bed! The house is on fire! Grab a water hose, boy!” You see, after my recent car jacking and subsequent bullet through the chest, an expensive gated community may be just what the doctor ordered. In case you’re unfamiliar with Sea Pines, it the largest and probably most exclusive of the ten plantations on Hilton Head. It is also the home of the MCI Heritage (golf) and the Family Circle Cup (tennis). Well, it used to host the latter until Charleston got its grubby -- but still genteel, mind you -- fingers on it two years ago. Believe it or not, there was a time when I wouldn’t be caught dead on Sea Pines. In my confused teenage mind the place was just too white. It wasn’t “down.” Like I’d actually run into some homeboys on the back nine. To be honest, in all the years of coming over here to Sea Pines I’ve only used the pool once. I remember belly flopping into the water and then watching the white parents yank their kids out. That was over twenty years ago. After a ten-year self-imposed exile from Sea Pines I find that I’m loving every well-manicured moment of it. Homeboys and poolside bigots be damned. My reason for returning here is a simple, yet politically incorrect one. Mayor Otis Johnson, I suspect, was alluding to it at a recent Town Hall meeting concerning the wretched state of Savannah’s public schools when he said, “There are some things I want to say, but I’m not going to.” I’ll say it for you, Mr. Mayor: I’m sick of crazy black people and I need a freakin’ break. So here I am on Sea Pines with nary a black face insight. Of course, I have

Getting What You Pay For Even though India now has 80,000 licensed dentists, nearly 100 “street dentists” continue to operate in dusty, open-air “offices,” performing extractions and “fitting” used dentures for, typically, 1 percent to 2 percent of what a licensed dentist would charge. One patient of practitioner Mahender Singh, observed for a June dispatch from Jaipur in The New York Times, was “spitting streams of blood into the gutter” after removal of an incisor that, said Singh, “was not working right” and “kept turning left and right when he ate.” Singh uses anesthetic but said some patients still pass out from the pain.

Cultural Diversity

Citing the high quality of the workforce in Ontario, Toyota decided recently to build a second plant in the province (this time in Woodstock) even though Ontario was offering only about half the subsidy offered by Mississippi and Alabama to build the plant in one of those states. According to a July Canadian Press story, a trade association executive said the industry had learned from Nissan and Honda, which had found the workforce in the U.S. South to be often untrained and illiterate, and that, in Alabama, trainers had to use pictorials to teach some workers how to use the equipment.

Recurring Themes Incompetent Home Improvement: A bee-plagued homeowner in northwest Tucson, Ariz., attempting to “frighten the bees off” (according to a fire department spokesman) by lighting a small fire in the attic, inadvertently ignited insecticide vapor, with the resulting blaze causing about $100,000 damage to the roof (March). And a woman in Mecklenburg County, N.C., attempted to chase snakes out of a couch on her front porch by dousing the nest with lighter fluid, but then an accidentally dropped match set a fire large enough that she had to jump out a window to safety (June). Fetish du Jour: In July in Exeter, England, Paul Pennington pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual activity in a public restroom, while incidentally dressed in a baby diaper, bib and girl’s dress and carrying a baby bottle (but also wearing a stuffed bra). And Sean Kelly, 35, was arrested in Sebastian, Fla., in July, and charged with fraudulently attempting to obtain health-care services after he showed up at a clinic complaining of back pain but dressed in a baby diaper (which he eventually “loaded,” demanding a change). And Calvin Milo Alvarez, 30, was arrested in Fayetteville, Ark., in May on a child pornography charge after he was found by police, arguing with another man at an apartment house, with Alvarez dressed in a baby diaper and bleeding from the mouth.

First Things First In June, the Arab Balad party went to court in Haifa, Israel, challenging ultranationalist Jews of the Gush Katif settlement, who are virulently opposing the government’s mandatory withdrawal from Gaza. However, the Balads’ complaint has little to do with sovereignty or religion. The party has for years used orange as its organizing theme color and filed the lawsuit to make the upstart Gush Katif stop using orange in its own materials.

Thinning the Herd The bodies of Kentucky State Reformatory inmates Avery C. Roland, 26, and Michael Talbot Jr., 24, were found in a nearby landfill the day after they went missing in July; a Department of Corrections official said they had probably hidden inside a garbage truck without realizing that, to prevent escapes, the prison requires that garbage be compacted twice before it leaves the grounds. And four days apart in July, two 19-year-old men (in Sheboygan, Wis., and Louisville, Ky.) fell to their deaths while car-surfing at high speeds. (According to a witness, the Sheboygan man’s fatal fall came shortly after he yelled to his driver, “Is that all you got?”) ◗

First prize in the youth division of the Fourth of July parade this year in Haines, Ore., went to three kids, all aged 9 and 10, who dressed as large, shelled insects (actually, in inner tubes covered by garbage bags), pushing huge rubber balls coated in sand, dirt and dead grass, according to the Baker City Herald. (Yes, the parents had conspired with their kids to dress them up as dung beetles!)

England (population 150,000), where fewer than one in a hundred residents attends an Anglican church. (Said a CMS spokesman, “These days the CMS goes to the hard places and takes on the hard cases.”) (The Church of England might have a larger problem, according to a July survey by Bangor University researchers: 3 percent of its clergy doubts the existence of God, which works out to nearly 300 non-believing ministers.) A growing number of historical sites in Mecca (perhaps even including the home of the Prophet Muhammad) may soon fall to urban renewal as developers plan skyscrapers with stores and condominiums, according to a July Reuters dispatch. (Ironically, many devout Wahhabi Muslims support the demolition, hoping to prevent people from worshipping such “sacred” buildings instead of concentrating on their proper duties in Islam. Those Wahhabis view only the Grand Mosque, which is the destination for the annual hajj pilgrimages, as untouchable.) The New Born Fellowship Christian Center in Rochester, N.Y., recently adopted a several-weeks-long “Spiritual Warfare” theme that featured its pastor, Warren Meeks, delivering sermons while in military fatigues (and asking congregants to wear fatigues, too), to battle the spirits opposing U.S. troops overseas and those challenging American youth with drugs and gangs. Meeks also brought in an Army missile, to help with

The church’s founder said non-member Davis could still attend, but Davis’ daughter said, “In the time of (her) need, (the church) should be caring, supporting, asking what she needs, help her if she needed help.” (When healthier, Davis was donating $60 a month out of her $592 Social Security check.)

A French bus line filed an unfair-competition lawsuit against a group of cleaning ladies in Moselle, who used to be customers but who recently began carpooling to their jobs across the border at European Union offices in Luxembourg. Transports Schiocchet Excursions wants the ladies fined and their cars confiscated. And in Tokyo in July, a group of French-language schoolteachers filed a lawsuit against the city’s governor (asking the equivalent of almost $100,000) for his having denigrated the French language, calling it a “failed international language.” Said Malik Berkane, head of a French school in Tokyo, “(I)t’s unacceptable for him to insult French in this way.” In Kyrgyzstan (and some neighboring Central Asian countries) the pre-12thcentury tribal custom of “ala kachuu” continues, in which a man reduces the time and expense of courtship by riding up on horseback to a woman, snatching her up, and taking her to his family home, where his relatives (and sometimes hers) prepare her for marriage. According to an April New York Times dispatch from Bishkek, more than half of wives are acquired by ala kachuu (although the term can also mean a morebenign “elopement”), and even some of the snatched wives eventually “consent” to the marriage. Ala kachuu has been illegal for years, but the law against it is rarely enforced.

Pleistocene Park Scientists in the United States have proposed reintroducing big-game animals into the Great Plains, similar to the mammoths and other large mammals that existed there in the Pleistocene era more than 10,000 years ago. Writing in the journal Nature, the team, led by Josh Donlan from Cornell University, said the move could not only make large tracts of North America act as breeding sanctuaries for species under threat in Africa and Asia, but such ecological history parks could also become major tourist attractions. Donlan proposes using the reserves to build the populations of large animals such as Bactrian camels, Bolson tortoises, and rare species of horses, elephants, cheetahs and lions. The project could provide a pool of range-adapted animals that could be returned if their home habitats are eventually saved. ◗

A huge cloud of smoke from burning forests on Borneo caused a health emergency in parts of Malaysia, then eventually blew northwestward to Thailand’s beach resort of Phuket. The annual pall occurs as farmers, illegal loggers and plantation operators, mainly on the Indonesian side of Borneo, set hundreds of fires to clear land. Once the fires are ignited, underground peat and coal seams often keep smoldering for weeks. Australia said it will send a team of firefighting experts to help combat the blazes, and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations announced it has set up a panel of experts to tackle the smoke pollution.

Aspiring country artist Jason Courtenay opens for the famous Andy Griggs THIS THURSDAY NIGHT, Port Wentworth – a city that has been trumpeting its impending rebirth – will be visited by one of country music’s more respected stars. Andy Griggs is well-known in the world of C&W for his husky vocal turns on romantic ballads like “Tonight I Wanna Be Your Man,” and rocking, uptempo dance numbers like “I’ll Go Crazy.” But according to Griggs, there’s more to him than meets the eye. “I think people have heard it when I sing and play live,” the Louisiana native said recently, but he quickly added that he felt something was lacking on his actual recorded output. It’s hard to describe, he said, but if anything, it’s the sound that can only come from enjoying diverse musical tastes. “It’s nothing for me to listen to KISS and then put on Bill Monroe,” says the towheaded frontman. “There’s a lot of room in between those two.” Another up-and-coming singer and songwriter (who also plays guitar) is Jason Courtenay, and anyone familiar with his musical exploits to date would have to agree that he too is the product of diverse musical tastes. As one half of the popular acoustic cover duo The Courtenay Brothers (with real-life sibling Chuck), Jason has logged countless hours playing renditions of popular hits by everyone from James Taylor and Van Morrison to Garth Brooks and Tom Petty – and he’s done this in a wide variety of situations. Whether at high-profile public gigs in the City Market Courtyard, or private, invitation-only receptions and fundraisers at some of the area’s swankiest facilities, he and Chuck have plied their trade in everything from tuxes to T-shirts, and it has served them well.

They’ve both become proficient on the guitar, and adept at vocal harmonizing. But according to Jason, the inherent constrictions of that duo format have – in some ways – prevented him from flexing certain creative muscles. To that end, he recently formed The Hazzard County band with a handful of

Left, Jason Courtenay; right, Andy Griggs area pickers, and now juggles the two groups (and the occasional solo gig). This variety is offering him the creative freedom he says he needs to bring out the best in his own songwriting. That’s a talent he’s just now starting to focus on, and he says this new combo is the best way for him to improve upon that talent. “It’s given me my independence in a way,” he offers. “I feel like I can break away a bit and do more of an original thing. The duo’s all about giving people exactly what they want, and I’m glad to do it. But more and more, I like to be able to step up in the light a bit and not worry so much about what people think.” “We’re doing three of my own songs now in our sets, and (bassist) Tim Burke has some good songs of his own as well that we just haven’t gotten around to

working up yet. We’ll put more effort into the original stuff in the next few months.” Jason’s original material and his new backing group will be on display Thursday night when they open for Griggs, along with another fledgling regional country artist, Bryan Clees. This will be the second showcase gig of the Summer for Hazzard County (they recently nabbed a sweet spot supporting stars Jo Dee Messina and Mark Chesnutt at Red Gate Farms). Courtenay says these opening slots are a key to getting his band’s name out in this area – and to showing people a side of the singer they may not expect. “We do a lot more country stuff – both old and new – than in The Courtenay Brothers. We don’t do soft rock and pop. It’s about good and fast country rock.” That’s what the crowd at The Island Grill will get Thursday night. “We’ll just throw out the best eight to ten songs we’ve got,” says the frontman. “Originals and covers. New stuff and classic.” Jason says he’s thrilled at the chance to share the stage with Griggs. “I’ve loved every record he’s ever put out. He’s got a really rough and cool voice that doesn’t sound like anybody else. He does his own thing.” That spirit of individuality is something Courtenay says he’s hoping to tap into more and more as time goes by. “There’s no doubt that one way or another I’m not givin’ up on my dream... I want to hone in on my abilities. Whether or not I get a number one hit – or even a record deal – I’ll still be playin’ bars on the weekends. But I aspire to do more. It’s just gonna take hard work and being in the right place at the right time.” ◗

Jake Landers & The Southern Strangers

by Jim Reed

Tybee Beach Music Festival

A repeat engagement by one of the most beloved and respected names in the old-school bluegrass Jake Landers world, this intimate Band show is led by a former member of both The Dixie Gentlemen and The Blue Ridge Mountain Boys (!) who’s been been playing guitar since the early ‘50s with cats like the late, great Vassar Clements and dobro genius Tut Taylor. He’s written many songs which have become standards, including “Walk Softly On This Heart of Mine� which was a major crossover country hit for The Kentucky Headhunters. There aren’t many artists of this man’s caliber left who still hit the road, so if you fancy yourself a bluegrass fan, you won’t miss this great opportunity to see a true sensation backed by some of the finest pickers in his home state of Alabama. Tickets are only $15 at the door, and can be charged in advance by calling 748-1930. This show may sell out, so check first before leaving home. Sat., 8 pm, Randy Wood’s Concert Hall (Bloomingdale).

This is the second year in a row that Sounds of The South Productions has put on a massive (by Tybee standards) outdoor music festival on the North Beach “in Keith Sweat the shadow of the lighthouse.� The 2005 incarnation finds plenty of beer, food and (hopefully) beautiful weather, not to mention all the live shag, boogie, pop and country you can shake a glowstick at. Friday night’s lineup starts at 7:30 pm, and includes Jive Train, Heather Lutrell, and Liquid Ginger. Saturday, things get underway at 12 noon, and for one low price you can catch sets by Jive Train, The Drifters, The Tams, The Embers, Heather Lutrell, Mustang Sally, and regional C & W favorites The Kinchafoonee Cowboys. Lawn chairs are allowed but outside food and drinks are not. There will be shuttle buses running from nearby parking lots. Two-day and one-day passes are on sale now at the Tybee Market IGA, and the Savannah Civic Center Box Office. Charge them at (800) 351-7469 or www.tybeeislandfestival.com. Fri., 7:30 pm - 11 pm & Sat., 12 noon - 11 pm.

“Summer Sweat Tour� w/Keith Sweat, et al “New Jack City was a long time ago,� cracked comedian Chris Rock during his latest HBO standup special, and the film that helped launch his career is about as old as the New Jack Swing movement it was named for. In the ‘80s, Keith Sweat was one of the biggest stars of that R & B sub-genre, with hits like “Don’t Stop Your Love,� “Make You Sweat,� and “Merry Go Round.� Yet, he’s still on the circuit, and is touring behind a new LP. He headlines this package tour which also features hot Caribbean funk/soca sensations Elvis White, and K-Ci & Jo-Jo. Sat., 8 pm, The Johnny Mercer Theatre.

Blues & BBQ Party w/Bottles & Cans Bottles & Cans A few weeks back, this historic American Legion Post inaugurated their new monthly Sunday Night Concert Series, to overwhelming success. The Sons Apparently, its organizers (T of The American Legion) were right: there are plenty of folks eager to find something fun and music-related to do downtown on Sunday nights, which – 111 W. DeRenne Ave

352-0709

except for a few scattershot restaurant gigs here and there – has traditionally been something of a mission impossible. The first installment of these 21+ events found The Jimmy Wolling Band laying down traditional and progressive bluegrass, while the crowd danced, drank and scarfed down Memphis-style barbecue from Angel’s (a brand-new take-out joint profiled in last week’s edition of Connect). However, the turnout was so much greater than expected that all the food was gone within thirty minutes of the dinner bell. This time out, Angel’s is back to provide a sit-down meal of smoked pork, slaw, beans and Creole gumbo, and one assumes there will be enough to last. Live music comes courtesy of Bottles & Cans, one of the only local electric blues bands to intentionally avoid the more glitzy and showy trappings of that feel-good genre. Their lineup of guitar, bass, drums and mouth harp is more closely aligned to the gutbucket ethos of such famed juke-joint kings as the late R.L. Burnside and Hound Dog Taylor than the slick, urban approach of Robert Cray or Bobby Bland. The lounge opens at 5 pm, food is served at 6 pm, and the band plays from 6:30 pm till 9:30 pm. $5 cover, $7.50 dinners, and all proceeds go to benefit local charities. Sun., 6 pm, American Legion Post #135 (1108 Bull St.). ◗

I’VE ALWAYS FOUND BARTENDERS FASCINATING. These shrink substitutes, knowledge sherpas and purveyors of alcoholic bliss command immediate respect for whatever reason, and I cannot deny my jealousy of a few of them. Not only do they appear to be “on” all the time, they have to be experts at everything in the establishment: the menu, the newest/hottest brands of vodka and, of course, the wine list. So, with all that expertise, what wines are bartenders recommending these days? I had to ask. I found that, for the most part, bartenders at hot bars are too frickin’ busy to ponder your question. They’ll list the selections and pray the customer has a clue — and, if the answer is no, pour the sub-par house wine with a patient smile. Or, when asked, one bartender at a popular Tampa beer joint simply goes by gut. She eyes a white wine inquisitor up and down, then assesses how sophisti-

cated his/her palate might be. One option is “house wine” and the other might be Raymond Chardonnay. She says her system works every time. But I wonder if a bad hair day would condemn me to plunk? Lesson learned: Ask for a wine list. TIP: In a bar setting, you don’t know how much wine by the glass has been sold, so your beverage could have been opened for days. Since I’m a stickler for return on my $8 wine investment, I often annoy bartenders by asking how long a bottle has been fermenting in its own oxygen. The investigation takes up two more precious minutes, but I tip well, so they usually indulge me. This process regularly results in a freshly popped bottle. But the best service usually occurs at restaurant bars. Trained in the arts of food and wine, those bartenders direct people to what will harmonize with the menu. Ashley Crichlow, bartender at Fritti in Atlanta, steers people away from the typical varietals and asks them to explore the restaurant’s Italian wines by the glass.

But don’t always expect wine advice to be given straight up To customers looking for white wine, she recommends Gavi di Gavi, a relatively obscure, fruity white. For reds, she recommends the Italian zinfandel lookalike Primitivo, which matches really well with Fritti’s pizzas. Keith Wlosinski, former bartender at Gallery Eclectic Bistro in Tampa, liked to suggest wines that both complement the food and taste good alone. His choices? Evolution #9 from Oregon’s Sokol Blosser Winery and Rombauer zinfandel. So wine recommendations, like bartenders, can come on all different levels: expert to lazy. Arm yourself with a little bit of knowledge, and you’ll come out ahead. Update: On August 5, U.S. District Court Judge James D. Whittemore signed an order stopping Florida from enforcing the silly felony law attached to shipping wine into the state. The order sprang from negotiations between Florida’s Attorney General and a law firm representing consumers and out-of-state wineries. This freedom will last until the

Legislature can enact permanent laws, whether barring all wine shipments in the state of Florida or allowing a level playing field between wineries out of the state and in state. Before May’s Supreme Court decision ruled Florida’s situation unconstitutional, in-state wineries could ship at will and out-of-state wineries were barred. ◗

Recommended Wines Deloach Vineyards 2004 Gewurztraminer Early Harvest Russian River -- The best Gewurztraminer I’ve had in a long time. Fragrant with ripe peaches, pears and cinnamon.

THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN ✰✰✰1/2

THE BROTHERS GRIMM ✰

There’s still enough summertime left for one more financial mega-flop to clear out movie houses and studio coffers (see also The Island and Stealth), so why not , an $80 million stinkbomb that also has the dishonor of being the season’s worst release? (Well, keep in mind that I didn’t see Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo.) Terry Gilliam, the former Monty Python member whose peculiar brand of genius doesn’t always translate comfortably to his motion picture endeavors, has concocted an overstuffed boondoggle that’s miles removed from the mind-bending highs of Brazil or Twelve Monkeys. Matt Damon and Heath Ledger are cast adrift as the title characters, con artists whose ability to fool the local yokels of Germany with their fabricated yarns gets put to the test once they encounter genuine monsters. Gilliam’s dark sensibilities would have been better served if the creatures had been lovingly crafted under the auspices of innovators like Jan Svankmajer or the Quay Brothers; instead, they’re brought to cheesy life by the same unconvincing CGI effects continued on page 28

This animated feature clocked in at 109 minutes during its recent run in England, and for once, I’m glad of the short attention spans of American tots, as the movie has been mercifully chopped down to 76 minutes for its stateside engagement. The most interesting moment in this turgid film is the revelation at the end that of the 53 Dickin Medals given to animals for bravery during World War II, 31 of them went to pigeons. That sounds like a compelling subject for a live-action documentary (March of the Pigeons?), but instead, the topic has been tossed away on a rigidly rote cartoon that features the usual mix of audience condescension, uninspired computer-animated graphics, obvious morals aimed at small children and, oh yeah, flatulence gags. Ewan McGregor, in his second 2005 tour of duty in a mediocre cartoon (following last spring’s Robots), provides the voice for the title character, an undersized pigeon who gets to prove his mettle by delivering important messages as part of the Royal Homing Pigeon Service.

The summer’s most unexpected surprise mixes honest sentiment and raunchy humor in a manner that’s more satisfying than in just about any comparable modern comedy, including the current hit Wedding Crashers -- in fact, not since There’s Something About Mary has a movie combined these disparate elements so seamlessly. Displaying a spark of comic invention in small roles in Bewitched, Anchorman and Bruce Almighty, Steve Carell catches on fire here, playing a sympathetic character that he created with director Judd Apatow (both men are credited with the screenplay). Carell plays Andy, a man-child who sports an impressive collection of comic books and action figures (all in mint condition, of course), rides a bicycle to work every day, and never has even come close to knowing the joys of a relationship, let alone the attendant carnal pleasures. His three co-workers at the electronics store (Paul Rudd, Romany Malco and Seth Rogen) make it their mission in life to hook Andy up; he eventually bumps into a few prospects, the most promising being Trish (excellent Catherine Keener), a divorcee with three kids and a flailing Internet business. The 40-Year-Old Virgin runs almost a full two hours -- normally, that’s a suicidal length for a comedy of this sort, but in this case, Carell and Apatow use the time wisely, developing the Andy-Trish romance at a believable clip and also turning Andy’s three buddies into fully formed characters rather than the onenote sidekicks we’re accustomed to seeing.

FOUR BROTHERS ✰✰

BROKEN FLOWERS ✰✰✰1/2

Bill Murray plays Don Johnston, whose seemingly catatonic existence receives a much-needed jolt -- not so much from the departure of his fed-up girlfriend (Julie Delpy) as from the arrival of an anonymous letter claiming that he has a son who’s been kept hidden from him for the past two decades. Broken Flowers is a movie of wry humor and wry observations, yet it’s precisely because of Murray’s approach that the film works as well as it does: Rarely has an actor conveyed so much by doing so little. Yet Murray’s not working alone, thanks to the contributions of the women playing his former flames.

MUST LOVE DOGS ✰✰✰

Many of the elements that have made the contemporary romantic comedy such a grueling (and formulaic) experience are present in Must Love Dogs, and yet the movie nonetheless will work for those willing to surrender themselves to its dreamy passion. The film’s success begins and ends with its leading players, and yet it’s important not to under value director Gary David Goldberg’s script (adapted from Claire Cook’s novel), which adds some interesting quirks to a familiar framework. Diane Lane, so beautiful that it almost hurts to look at her, plays Sarah Nolan, a recent divorcee who takes a chance on meeting single men who contact her through an Internet dating service. John Cusack, so adorable that even heterosexual guys might feel inclined to give him a big bear hug, portrays Jake Anderson, one of her prospective suitors. Over the course of the film, they date and dally with other people, yet they

John Singleton went from the Oscarnominated triumph of Boyz N The Hood to helming 2 Fast 2 Furious, the junky sequel to another director’s The Fast and the Furious. Four Brothers finds Singleton again slumming, this time in the service of a standard revenge flick that was a lot more fun when John Wayne and Dean Martin tackled the basic premise in The Sons of Katie Elder. The brothers of the title are Bobby (Mark Wahlberg), Angel (Tyrese Gibson), Jeremiah (Andre Benjamin) and Jack (Garrett Hedlund), who grew up in the care of a foster home provider (Fionnula Flanagan) who raised the boys after nobody else wanted them. The lads return to their Detroit home after they learn that their mom was killed during a holdup. But as they snoop around, they realize that she wasn’t an innocent bystander but the target of a planned hit.

THE DUKES OF HAZZARD ✰1/2

Inspired by the glut of so-called “hick flicks” that dominated drive-ins throughout the 1970s, the hit TV series was primarily an excuse to showcase good ol’ boy shenanigans amidst plenty of car collisions. This film version follows suit, and can be summed up in the sort of blurb found in TV Guide: “Bo (Johnny Knoxville) and Luke (Sean William Scott) try to prevent the corrupt Boss Hogg (Burt Reynolds) from seizing all the land in Hazzard County for his own devious purposes. Daisy: Jessica Simpson. Uncle Jesse: Willie Nelson. 97 minutes. (Repeat)” But let’s be honest: If you’re a fan of either the original series and/or Johnny Knoxville, you’ll probably get your money’s worth, so ignore the critics and zoom on over to the multiplex. ◗

Saturn transits Leo from July 16, 2005 to September 2, 2007. The retired CEO, managing director or managing partner of the firm approaches the secretary’s desk while removing a stray thread from the arm of an otherwise impeccable, expensive business suit, then addresses the recent graduates buzzing around the department in the guise of talking directly to the secretary – very loudly, “Each & every individual enjoys their day in the spotlight – as long as that individual is consistent. However, for that indi-

ARIES - Why negotiate with individuals who demand that you accommodate them? When you say, “Take it or leave it!”, let selfish people know that you mean it. In order to be fair to everybody, you must be fair to yourself! TAURUS - Those who make demands upon you expect to see your public, civilized face – but you may be more inclined to show them your sharp, barbaric teeth. Communicate to the aggressive that they would be foolish to approach you smugly or cavalierly. GEMINI - Take a closer look at the famous scene of Five Easy Pieces where a frustrated & furious Jack Nicholson orders a chicken salad sandwich . . . without the chicken salad. Study this classic performance for useful pointers in how you may want (and not want) to “act” when addressing merchants & vendors who ignore your direct instructions. CANCER - To ensure your financial stability, you must be noble. Bosses expect more from you precisely because you will always & forever be either “much better” or “much worse” than the norm. Live up to – not down to – your role model status.

vidual to show consistency, that individual must withstand the criticism for demonstrating that consistent trait. ‘Too clean-cut.’ ‘A radical.’ ‘Feminist agitator.’ ‘Flaunts her buxom cleavage.’ Then, one day, after so much consistency & so much criticism, the mood shifts, and, whoever it is, flavor of the month, here is our poster child, standing ovation from the audience, we love you so much!”

LEO - You will now endure the negative psychological

SAGITTARIUS - Legal backlash could leave you vulnerable

projections imposed upon you not only by perverse political enemies, but also by your own family or fellow citizens. Repel their darkness with words & actions that demonstrate brilliance, virtue, compassion . . . and no judgmental attitudes whatsoever.

to accusations that you have violated somebody’s civil rights. You must not demonstrate reckless, cavalier or autocratic attitudes towards enforcing & upholding the law. Consider undergoing “sensitivity training” strictly to inform you of issues that could potentially arise.

VIRGO - It is a potential health hazard for you to lose your temper. Therefore, keep conspicuous, and almost rude, distance from contentious strangers. Beware friendly conversations by adversaries designed to set you up to suffer a sudden “sucker punch” by a real sneak.

CAPRICORN - If you antagonize enormously wealthy, influential power brokers, then they will stop the flow of all cash to you, immediately, without warning. Don’t volunteer to be their “scapegoat” for such power brokers’ “political statements.” AQUARIUS - Partners, rivals & adversaries respect all that

LIBRA - Political & professional enemies will revel in the artless guile & blunt crudity of their blackmail & whitemail – but you will quickly find a way, without breaking any laws or rules, to beat such creeps at their own game.

SCORPIO - Professional superiors & law enforcement officials will decide upon looking at you only once whether you are their favorite or their enemy. Whichever it is, follow their instructions & the letter of the law perfectly, flawlessly & to that letter.

you have accomplished over time – but do you return their respect, or do you treat it with haughty disdain? Become more collegial.

PISCES - Develop, then maintain, an arduous, daily workout regimen, incorporating Kundalini yoga, tai chi or a martial art. And don’t be obsessed with looking at yourself in the mirror; rather, gauge your mental faculties to discern whether or not your logical mind is working more clearly. ◗

document back to you. An "offer" defines four primary points: 1) purchase price, 2) terms under which you will make payment, 3) date of possession, and 4) a “closing” date when the transaction will be completed. You may also spell out other terms of your purchase, such as a request for a survey, or requirement that certain repairs be made prior to closing. Sometimes, the offer is not acceptable to the sellers.They may make changes in the offer , and make a "counter-offer," which would then require acceptance by the purchasers. Once all parties have signed, indicating their accord, the document becomes a binding "agreement of sale." From then on, the agreement is carried out by all parties to reach a successful conclusion. Congratulations are in order!

By Patty Rietkovich, E.O. Home builders Association of Greater Savannah

Lots of people like to go through model homes. Some go to “dream of the day when”, others go to look for interior decorating ideas and to see what's new, and the rest are there to buy a new home. You might think that the sales person is there just to sell you a home. But the sales representative should be considered as resource of information on the home, development and the area. Besides the question of “how much does it cost?,” and “when can we move in?,” here are some other questions to note the answers to:

14 Earl Court Savannah $115,900 Well maintained home with lots of living space, large kitchen, & separate dining as well as covered patio in rear area addition. Ceiling fans in most rooms. Large Cul-desac with fenced yard. Call Dianne Kessler 663-2417

130 Tibet Avenue Commercial Opportunity Savannah $ 800,000 Almost 2 acres zoned RM 25. Approx. 16,000 sq. ft. Great potential for legal, medical, personal care. Call Sam Simowitz 655-0852

You have a right to and need to ask every question that you think is important. A little research with the neighbors is also a good idea.

Financing

Connect Savannah

Does the builder have a financing plan established? Are there options in the floor plan -- can a basement or deck be added?, etc. Can a room such as the basement be left unfinished? How much “customizing” can be done versus standard features? Can appliances be up- or down-graded? Are there any additional fees relating to the home or development? Does the builder offer a warranty program? Does the price include landscaping? and what if the plants die within a year? Are there any restrictive covenants? What are the estimated taxes on the property? How is the school system rated? Are day care and grocery stores convenient and satisfactory? What about emergency facilities--police, fire department and hospitals? Are there any major development plans for the area in the next 5 years?

document back to you. An "offer" defines four primary points: 1) purchase price, 2) terms under which you will make payment, 3) date of possession, and 4) a “closing” date when the transaction will be completed. You may also spell out other terms of your purchase, such as a request for a survey, or requirement that certain repairs be made prior to closing. Sometimes, the offer is not acceptable to the sellers.They may make changes in the offer , and make a "counter-offer," which would then require acceptance by the purchasers. Once all parties have signed, indicating their accord, the document becomes a binding "agreement of sale." From then on, the agreement is carried out by all parties to reach a successful conclusion. Congratulations are in order!
