by Aberjhani

THE FREQUENTLY CELEBRATED triumphs of media mogul Oprah Winfrey and increasing talk of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton becoming the country’s first woman president could lead many to think American women at long last have achieved a social, economic, and political status equivalent to American men. From where Gale Sky Edeawo of Project Welcome Home and Miriam Center of the Daughters of Destiny Center stand, that conclusion would be wrong. Education, employment, parenting, and housing are issues common to both women and men. However, additional social factors like domestic violence, sexual abuse, discrimination, and health issues continue to place women at a disadvantage. Take, for example, the fact that some six million women, according to the National Organization for Women and various government agencies, are beaten every year by a husband or boyfriend. Of that number, some 1,500 result in death. Or consider that sociologists estimate more than one third of all female children suffer physical or sexual abuse. As adolescents, young adults, and more mature women, some 132,000 annually report being raped. Law enforcement agencies estimate the number of unreported rape cases more than doubles that number. Such a barrage of physical, psychological, and spiritual violence generates consequences. Sometimes they take the form of drug abuse, or sometimes long years in psychological therapy. At their most extreme, more and more, they take the form of retaliatory violence that includes “murder in self defense.” As women working to help other women survive debilitating conditions and thrive as healthy productive individuals, Edeawo and Center are local representatives of a growing national movement.

Project Welcome Home In 1998, Gale Sky Edeawo accepted an invitation from Linda Hill of the Savannah Runaway program to address a group of youth and employ her literacy coaching skills to help them utilize writing as a tool for coping with the frustrations of their lives. Edeawo discovered that many of their difficulties stemmed less from hardcore delinquency on behalf of the youth themselves than from the fact that many of their parents were incarcerated. The problem was bad enough when the imprisoned parent was a father no longer able to provide for his family; but it was far worse when the absent parent was a single mother no longer able to shelter, guide, or nurture her children. In fact, an estimated 200,000 children have mothers in jail and more than a million have incarcerated fathers. Unfortunately, the number of imprisoned women in the United States has risen steadily since the 1990s. The U.S. Bureau of Justice estimates that, on any given day, more than 100,000 women, whether mothers or not, are held in a prison or jail. Most are there for non-violent property crimes, drug abuse, or theft related to abuse issues. More than half have a history of having been physically or sexually abused. Of those released from jail annually, tens of thousands end up going back. “In Chatham County,” says Edeawo, “the rate of recidivism is 85 percent. And that’s way too high.” Especially when compared to a national average closer to 68 percent. Attempting to help break the cycle of children losing their mothers to prison, and women in general losing

Miriam Center, left, and Gail Skye Edeawo control of their lives to conditions likely to lead to prison, Edeawo joined a volunteer project to work with women inmates at the Chatham County Sheriff Complex. The life skills counseling she offered women behind the bars evolved, in January 2001, into an extended referral service called Project Welcome Home for women exiting prison and reentering society. “Project Welcome Home was actually created in Cell Block 2-C of the Chatham County Jail with the assistance of the female inmates who participated in my life skills class,” says Edeawo. “It was my idea and they said, ‘Yes, let’s go for it.’” In addition to moderating forums in which the women were able to express their feelings, she also helped them to improve their communication skills through writing letters, learn to manage anger, recognize different patterns and forms of addiction, and become more aware of relationship dynamics. The program also offered strategies to help women acquire essentials upon their release, including transportation, shelter, and employment. Even after obtaining these basic necessities, maintaining them could prove overwhelming. Edeawo’s role has often become an extended one, with clients seeking her counsel on everything from job interviews to where they should turn in emergency situations. Her unwavering commitment to them earned her the nickname “Mama Sky.” Among those obstacles women face upon leaving incarceration, Edeawo says housing is the most crucial. “We don’t have any halfway houses for women in Savannah and they usually don’t have any money to pay for lodging when they get out. So unless a family member

or friend is willing to take them in, they have nowhere to go,” says Edeawo. “A woman who’s a former offender is not eligible for low-income housing, or even average housing. If she can finally get some type of housing at all, it’s usually in a drug-infested area that’s unsafe for her kids, and unsafe for those women who are former addicts,” she says. “Women who can’t get shelter end up homeless. Then the same ones I started working with in the jail can become the ones I start working with at the Salvation Army, Interfaith Hospitality Network, Hope House, and many other places because they become destitute.” As if to underscore the significance of Edeawo’s work, her client Phyllis Brown paid an unscheduled visit to the Project Welcome Home office during our interview. The 47-year-old Brown met the 59-year-old Edeawo while incarcerated at the Chatham County Sheriff Complex and attending a substance abuse class. She discovered in Edeawo a role model and motivator. Brown credits Edeawo with motivating her to transform the writing and artwork she did as a hobby in jail into a serious professional goal. “In jail, I used my art and poetry to make greeting cards for other inmates because I found that what’s on the market didn’t really address the things we were feeling, or the things we needed to say to our families because of our situation,” Brown says. “Now I’d like to start a line of those kinds of cards. I’m also completing a book of poetry and I’ve started on an autobiography.” In addition, Brown is studying patient care technology at the Savannah College of Technology. Her determination to leave her past of addiction permanently behind her has allowed her to take on a more supportive role within her family of four adult children and nine grandchildren. Another client, 36-year-old Joyce Johnson, a mother of five, called during the interview. Johnson was released from a transitional facility in Atlanta in June 2004. Her story was less inspiring than Brown’s because she just received a week’s notice to vacate her apartment after falling behind on her rent. She explains that, “I was paying my rent fine until I fell behind because I got hired for a new job so I quit my old one. After I had quit my old job, the new employer said they did a background check and decided that they couldn’t hire me again even though I had already told them about my past before they hired me and before I quit my other job.” In her frustration, Johnson voices a dilemma that virtually every former inmate faces: “A lot of people don’t want to give us a chance because they’re afraid we’re going to steal from them or hurt them some kind’a way, but we have to have some kind of trust because if nobody gives us a chance, then we’re basically forced to make the same mistakes we made before.” Edeawo estimates that she has worked with more than 600 women, behind walls and outside of them, through Project Welcome Home. She continues to visit the prison at least once a month and also to assist in group sessions at the Drug Rehabilitation Center. Grants and donations from organizations and individuals have allowed her to acquire an office on Abercorn Street. In addition to being the founder and director of Project Welcome Home, Edeawo also participates in the Fraternal Order of Police, serves on the board of the Interfaith Hospitality Network Board, on the Regional Youth Detection Center’s Advisory Board, and works with many other organizations. She is, moreover, known as much for


7 her literary achievements as she is for her community activism. Even more than the funding that she says her organization needs, Edeawo maintains that what her clients need is a community more supportive of her efforts. She particularly stresses a critical need for more adult males to serve as mentors to at risk male youth. “If we don’t save the children we’re all going to be doomed because without them we have no future,” she says. For information on Project Welcome Home, call 920-9411.

undergoing treatment at the Drug Rehabilitation Center. One artist who has already benefited from the center is Brenda Massie-Yates, who recently relocated to Savannah from New York and set up a studio in the facility. “I wasn’t sure how I was going to go about pursuing my art here,” says Massie-Yates, “so this worked out perfectly for me.” While she hopes to see Daughters of Destiny spread to different cities and communities, for the time being Center is content to see the nonprofit organization continue developing in Savannah. “This is my church, the Church for Women,” she says. “I’m a church lady (laughs).” For more information on Daughters of Destiny, call 663-0894. ◗

and became suicidal. Upon joining Center’s group, she regained enough self esteem to file and win a suit against her former employer for several million dollars. As the meetings continued, transferring to Center’s home, the issues they addressed expanded until Center found herself confronting battered wives, sexually abused daughters, victims of gender discrimination, women addicts, and others whose lives had been somehow derailed. The platform provided by Daughters of Destiny, in Center’s terms, could help these women heal their wounded souls. In doing so, they could then heal, or more greatly fulfill, their individual lives. In 1998, she moved from Los Angeles to Atlanta, where she established another branch of Daughters of Destiny. Five years later, her spiritual journey brought her back to Savannah. She again started holding meetings in her home. The location for the meetings changed after Center acquired a small house at 12 E. 41st Street and opened its doors to the public in April. In addition to the weekly Monday night meetings, Daughters of Destiny hosts and promotes women artists, and participates in the monthly First Friday open hoses with the Starland Dairy group. Center also takes her message of hope and renewal once a week to those

Connect Savannah

Every Monday night at Savannah’s newly founded Daughters of Destiny Center, founder Miriam Center rings a chime, leads a group of women in prayer, and recites a text intended to strengthen women’s self image and general sense of empowerment. Recently at such a meeting she read a passage from Melody Beattie’s Journey to the Heart, encouraging women to exercise greater self-love. “Women are afraid of loving themselves,” says Center. “They’re so used to being caretakers that they don’t even realize that they have the right to love themselves. That’s why they’re so codependent and want somebody else to give them the love.”

Center’s quest to help women live more fulfilling lives began in the late 1980s, when at the age of 50 she got in her car and drove solo from Savannah to California. The move was part of a major spiritual rebirth that included the dissolution of a 30-year marriage and closing her successful real estate company. Although she had lost her oldest son, she raised two others to adulthood and recently become a grandmother, but felt her life remained incomplete. With the establishment of Daughters of Destiny in Los Angeles, she found the missing piece to the puzzle of her existence. “Although I didn’t know it at the time, I was making a life passage which would encompass all women in transition,” Center says. “Wouldn’t it be nice, I thought, if there was a network for women assisting each other, when their families were unwilling, or were unable to hear and help them.” The powerful significance of what she had stumbled upon became more evident as she interacted with different women in diverse, yet similar, situations. The first Daughters of Destiny meeting was held in the home of a former nightclub performer who had abandoned her career to marry a Hollywood executive, become a mother, then developed agoraphobia (fear of the outdoors). Another woman had been a college professor who unexpectedly lost her job

Liberals aren’t blameless Editor, As a regular reader of your paper, the first thing I turn to is either the letters or the opinion section. While reading Doug Wyatt’s column, it was blatantly obvious that this column was a spoof. I’m surprised more people didn’t pick up on that. Why? Because in the four-plus years that I have read your paper I don’t recall seeing any kind of Republican/conservative viewpoint printed in the Connect opinion page. Secondly, Doug’s column was written from such an overtly ignorant point of view, it could only suggest that the author’s true contempt was not for the people who were affected by Katrina, but for those who might vote Republican. This leads me to your follow-up Letter from the Editor and the apparent lack of political discourse our country is undergoing. Are “liberals” really that innocent of agitating their nemesis? Your suggestion that someone (like me) who listens to Rush Limbaugh (Ben Bennett is way too early for me), or watches Bill O’Reilly or Sean Hannity (you forgot his “liberal” co-host Alan

Combs, who does provide a balance to the show), might actually agree with the elementary ramblings of your “conservative columnist” is insulting. It goes to show that you have as much insight into Republicans, as a whole, as you think they have about Democrats. While all the aforementioned personalities have played the blame game, Limbaugh, O’Reilly, and Hannity haven’t been entirely forgiving of the president’s handling of the Katrina situation. Problems were abounding from the start, on all levels, and from a variety of reasons; no one is guilt free. So, don’t speak as if “liberals” are the downtrodden that never get taken seriously or get their fair say. While the word “liberal” might mean tolerant or broadminded, it also has come to mean antiRepublican; the latter doesn’t make one the former. J. Stevens

Pay raises smell fishy Editor, The Savannah Morning News had an article about the raise that county manager Russ Abolt received. I want to

see the rest of the story. Mr. Abolt gave all of his department heads big fat merit raises that were not in the budget. Some were over 7 percent. None of the employees got a merit raise. In fact, the county hasn’t given the employees a merit raise in years. So, why do the department heads get them? When did the commission approve them? Now, all employees have gotten a 3 percent cost of living adjustment. The department heads and Mr. Abolt are getting this on top of their merit raises. How fair is that? Some department heads will end up with better than 10 percent raises. Cheyenne Arizona

Why give cops free PR? Editor, Regarding “Night Patrol,” Oct. 5 issue: I don’t know why taxpayers are funding a public relations department for the Savannah Police when Jim Morekis does the same job for free. Andrew Escobar

Connect is good competition Editor, I would gladly pay for a subscription for a competing left-leaning publication to Savannah’s right-leaning daily paper. I do not, and will not pay for the Savannah Morning News. I visit their online savannahnow.com site simply to check for news of local interest. If Connect Savannah could hire staff to cover local news and obits, I would gladly forego all association with the Morning News and savannahnow.com. Anyway, thanks! And keep up the good work!

Students, faculty and staff at the Savannah Arts Academy are celebrating the receipt of the Governor’s Cup for posting the largest increase in SAT scores in the region. Savannah Arts Academy students averaged a gain of 20 points over the past three years. “That’s a sizeable increase,” says Karen E. Nelson, School Development Coordinator. “Our students are above both the state and national averages.” With the prestige of earning the award comes a trophy, a $1,000 check from Turner Broadcasting that is to be used in the continuing effort to improve SAT scores, and a letter of praise from Gov. Sonny Perdue. The gain in SAT scores is due to the school’s approach to preparation for the test. These efforts range from small, daily activities to large, year-round ones.

Free Speech Creationism in camouflage?

OPINION|

by Keith Lockitch

EIGHTY YEARS after the famous Scopes “Monkey” Trial, the antievolution forces have regrouped. Today, the battle in Dover, Penn., is over the teaching of “intelligent design,” the view that life is so complex it must be the product of a higher intelligence. The central issue under debate is whether intelligent design is, in fact, a genuine scientific theory or merely a disguised form of religious advocacy -creationism in camouflage. Proponents of intelligent design aggressively market their viewpoint as real science, insisting it is not religiously based. Writes one leading advocate, Michael Behe: “The conclusion of intelligent design flows naturally from the data itself -- not from sacred books or sectarian beliefs.” Proponents of intelligent design claim that Darwinian evolution is a fundamentally flawed theory -- that there are certain complex features of living organisms evolution simply cannot explain, but which can be explained as the handiwork of an “intelligent designer.” Their viewpoint is not religiously based, they insist, because it does not require that the “intelligent designer” be God. “Design,” writes another leading proponent, William Dembski, “requires neither magic nor miracles nor a creator.” Indeed, “design” apparently requires surprisingly little of the designer’s identity: “Inferences to design,” contends Behe, “do not require that we have a candidate for the role of designer.” According to its advocates, the designer responsible for intelligent design in biology could be any sort of “creative intelligence” capable of engineering the basic elements of life. Some have even seriously nominated advanced space aliens for the role. Their premise seems to be that as long as they don’t explicitly name the designer -- as long as they allow that the designer could be a naturally existing being, a being accessible to scientific study -- that this somehow saves their viewpoint from the charge of being inherently religious in character. But does it? Imagine we discovered an alien on Mars with a penchant for bio-engineering. Could such a natural being fulfill the requirements of an “intelligent designer”? It could not. Such a being would not actually account for the complexity that design proponents seek to explain. Any natural being capable of “designing” the complex features of earthly life would, on their premises, require its own designer.

If design can be inferred merely from observed complexity, then our purported Martian “designer” would be just another complex being in nature that supposedly cannot be explained without positing another designer. One does not explain complexity by dreaming up a new complexity as its cause. By the very nature of its approach, intelligent design cannot be satisfied with a designer who is part of the natural world. Such a designer would not answer the basic question its advocates raise: it would not explain biological complexity as such. The only designer that would stop their quest for a design explanation of complexity is a designer about whom one cannot ask any questions or who cannot be subjected to any kind of scientific study -- a designer that transcends nature and its laws -- a designer not susceptible of rational explanation. In short: a supernatural “designer.” Its advertising to the contrary notwithstanding, intelligent design is inherently a quest for the supernatural. Only one candidate for the role of designer need apply. Dembski himself -- even while trying to deny this implication -- concedes that “if there is design in biology and cosmology, then that design could not be the work of an evolved intelligence.” It must, he admits, be that of a “transcendent intelligence” to whom he euphemistically refers as “the big G.” The supposedly nonreligious theory of intelligent design is nothing more than a crusade to peddle religion by giving it the veneer of science -- to pretend, as one commentator put it, that “faith in God is something that holds up under the microscope.” The insistence of intelligent design advocates that they are “agnostic regarding the source of design” is a baitand-switch. They dangle out the groundless possibility of a “designer” who is susceptible of scientific study -in order to hide their real agenda of promoting faith in the supernatural. Their scientifically accessible designer is nothing more than a “gateway god” -- metaphysical marijuana intended to draw students away from natural, scientific explanations and get them hooked on the supernatural. No matter how fervently its salesmen wish intelligent design to be viewed as cutting-edge science, there is no disguising its true character. It is nothing more than a religiously motivated attack on science, and should be rejected as such. ◗

Do memories burn at 451 degrees, too? loving and supportive, my mother was never big with compliments. “I can’t believe you’re so smart,” she continues in a vein she never took when she had her full capabilities. “I can’t believe you’re my daughter.” The next week we had the same conversation. “Want to know what page I’m on?” she asked. Sure. “Hold on a second, I’ll find out,” she said, putting the phone down. “Page 104.” The next week she’s still reading. But this time, she has a bone to pick with me. “You could have at least told me you wrote this,” she said. When I insisted I had, she disagreed. We went on and on like that for a few more weeks before I finally threw her the bone she wanted and said, “OK, maybe you’re right. Maybe I never did tell you.” Without missing a beat, she came back with a gleeful, “Aha! I knew it!” You know what? Four years is a long time ago. Maybe I did forget to tell her. ◗

But what struck me most -- besides jumping on a trampoline as part of his exercise routine -- is the room he reserves for file cabinets of memorabilia and/or minutia -- chits, lists, names, schedules, programs, brochures and other assorted written items. “My biggest fear is forgetting,” he said. So I’m not alone. During my last trip to Southfield, Mich., where my 91-year-old mother is living -- almost totally in the present, forget the past, why worry about the future -- I was fishing through her remaining five drawers for something to do. That’s when I found a copy of a book of newspaper columns I put together four years ago. For no particular reason, I set the book I call Everyone’s Gotta Be Somewhere out on my mother’s couch, which in this phase of her life has become her office, her library, her studio, her universe. A few weeks later during our weekly Sunday morning phone conversations, she said, “I’m reading your book. It’s really good!” “Thank you,” I reply, a little surprised yet pleased at the late compliment. While

I have no idea where I heard the book referenced. I forgot to “save” it and since, as a matter of course, I try to “trash” everything at the end of the day, the reference is lost. I think it was on radio. Maybe Garrison Keillor and his daily noontime show, The Writer’s Almanac, an absolute breath of fresh air between the psychotic treadmill of bungled bureaucracy, fears of flu and greed in high office. Back to Bradbury. During some mention of the book, which I read in high school and again in college, the commentator reminded us that 451 degrees is the temperature at which paper burns. My thought was this: Did I know that? If I did, I could not pull it up from the past. While the main point of the book was retrievable, the detail of the title was lost, gone, deleted, canceled, dragged to the trash can. Which makes me wonder how many other things are or will be lost. I felt slightly better after reading a blip about Bill Maher, the iconoclastic humorist formerly of “Politically Incorrect.” It was a silly magazine snapshot about his opulent and singular life.

THERE’S A LOT TO keep up with these days. I need more memory. I want a delete key, better hardware, bumped up megahertz, an improved search function. If I call one of those service operators in India or Pakistan and wait on the line for 30 minutes, can I get some help? Was it just last November that Bush bullied his way back into office? Please, tell me I’m wrong. It feels as if we’ve been dealing with his mishigas for a decade. If I didn’t know that most years go by like minutes and some days like years, I’d say that 2008 feels like a lifetime away. “Don’t worry,” I say to someone under 30 who finds he or she has forgotten something. “It only gets worse.” Just the other day I heard some kind of reference to Fahrenheit 451, that fantastic Ray Bradbury book about the burning of books. Before you Google the title, I’ll remind you the date it was written: 1953. Can you believe it? Just remembering the book, I know it’s a must reread.

A suspect that was arrested for burglarizing a church last year has been arrested for allegedly burglarizing the same church once again. On Oct. 4, police were called to St. Francis Episcopal Church on the report of a burglary. A suspect was seen leaving the scene on a bicycle. Officers “discovered evidence that the suspect had left a sleeping bag and other personal items in a room in the church.” Burglary detectives gathered enough evidence to identify John Scheffler, age 17, as the burglar. Two days later detectives arrested Scheffler at a friend’s house on Juanita Drive on Whitemarsh Island. Scheffler was arrested on December 21, 2004 for a burglary at the same church.

• Police were dispatched to Waldburg and Jefferson streets in reference to a man with a gun who appeared to be attempting to break into a vehicle, and a woman who was seen running from him and screaming. Several units raced to into the area, and a man at the scene flagged down one of the officers and pointed out the vehicle in question. He said the suspect tried to steal the car, but could not get it started. A woman then approached police and said she went outside when she heard the woman scream for help. She said she saw two men at the vehicle and said the woman was running away from both of them. She confirmed that one of the men had a gun and said the victim was in a nearby residence. The victim told police that she pulled up in her car, walked up to the house, knocked on the door, then turned around towards the street. The two men approached her, grabbed her keys out of her hand, pulled her off the porch and away from the door. She told them to take the vehicle, but they said, ”No, we want you, too.” She said one man pointed a gun at her as they pulled her towards the vehicle. She said the man with the gun got into the front seat, while the other man opened the side door and attempted to push her inside. She said the men looked up when they saw someone walking a dog and let go of her long enough for her to get away. She then ran towards Jefferson Street, screaming ”Help me” and attempting to flag down a passing vehicle. Another witness said he heard a knock at his door and asked who it was. When no one answered, he looked out the window and saw one of the suspects attempting to get the woman into the car. He got his dog and went outside, causing the men to release the woman.

• Police were dispatched to Broughton and Lincoln streets in reference to a report of a man and woman who were walking east on Broughton Street and appeared to be intoxicated. One officer observed the woman squatting with her pants pulled down around her knees. The officer asked the woman why she was urinating in public. She slurred that she had to go to the bathroom, and then asked where she was supposed to go. The woman smelled strongly of alcohol, and the officer asked if she’d been drinking. She did not answer, but the man she was with said he thought she had consumed alcohol earlier. The woman was placed in handcuffs. She became belligerent, and was arrested and charged with public drunkenness. • A man walking his dog on Highland Drive said a woman on a motor scooter drove toward him, passed him, then made a U-turn and approached him from behind, driving west in the eastbound lane. He said as she passed him, the handlebar of the scooter struck him on the rear of his upper-right arm. He said the woman then cursed him and told him to keep his dog out of her yard. He called police to report the incident, but did not remain on the scene because he was walking his dog. He said he eventually went to court to obtain a warrant and found he needed a police report in order to prosecute. He said he received no lasting injury, but is afraid of the woman. Police talked with a witness, who said he was driving east on Highland Drive that day. The witness said he saw the woman drive extremely close to the victim. The suspect admitted she was riding the scooter, but did not admit striking the victiml. She said they did not get along and that he cursed at her. ◗

Rochester, N.H., physician Terry Bennett has been scheduled for a December disciplinary hearing by the State Board of Medicine, based on a complaint that he much too bluntly warned an obese female patient to lose weight or face health and love-life problems (comments that allegedly caused her emotional distress).

More Weird Mating Habits: The longest-lasting copulation, according to University of Arizona biologist John Alcock (interviewed for an August Knight Ridder story), is that of the lowly “stick insect” (of the phasmida family), which goes on for several months at a time, even though, he said, it is “not clear this is welcome to the female.” The male attaches himself to the female’s back, which allows her to continue with her daily routine during the mating, while also discouraging competitor males. According to other biologists, some ticks spend up to eight hours on what resembles foreplay, and butterflies, snakes and houseflies can also go on for hours. At Northern Ireland’s Belfast Zoo in September, Phoebe the chimp and two others managed to climb out of their compound, and armed security guards had to come round them up. In an effort to frighten the animals into submission, they fired shots into the air, and according to the reporter for The Guardian newspaper, the chimps not only became docile at the sound of gunfire, but they put their hands up.

How can I setup Outlook to send mail from certain people to specified folders, or specific subjects?

www.connectsavannah.com

Here at the Diva Institute, we get this question a lot (grin). Microsoft Outlook Express includes a strong feature that allows users to filter out junk mail or “spam” mail. Creating message rules can also aid in organizing all that e-mail. You can use rules to routinely move email to a specified folder or to delete email from a chosen sender or victim. To define a new rule in Outlook Express: 1. Go to Tools > Message Rules. You will get a dialogue box where you can click on New to define a new rule. 2. After clicking on New, you will get a dialogue box that allows you to check the options that you want to apply. For example, you can choose to move all messages from evilpublisher@somenewspaper.com to a folder called D-Day. You will always specify a condition and then an action. For example, where the from line contains evilpublisher is a condition. The action would be move it to the D-Day folder. Joking. I like my publisher. I like my editor even better. It’s also a good idea to give your rules a name, such as move folder publisher, etc. This will allow you to find the rule later should you need to adjust it or do away with it. When you are in there checking out the rules you will see a lot of options you can choose from. If you receive a lot of email it’s great to utilize.

Rules... sigh, we need them

You can also use this to help filter spam as well and clock senders — for example: To block a sender: Outlook Express 5 and 6 also include a Block Senders function to prevent mail sent from specified addresses from entering your mailbox at all. On the Message menu, click Block Sender. Click Yes to delete all messages in your Inbox from this particular sender. This also adds the sender to your blocked senders list. To edit your blocked senders list: On the Tools menu, highlight Message Rules and click Blocked Senders List. For edits, select a blocked sender and click Modify. For deletions, select a blocked sender and click Remove. For additions, click Add. Type in the e-mail address and click OK. Click OK to save your changes. You can use these rules to fight that spam Viagra — though now they are getting tricky with the ascii art trick. (Spelling it out large in numbers and letters). But you can look at the body of these e-mails and basically find something to block. Be careful with what you choose to block as you could block out words that a friend could send. If you’re a guy you may not want to block out “hot sexy chicks wearing...” It’s up to you. I prefer to not receive those particular messages, myself. Microsoft Outlook that comes bundled with Office 2003 is better with automatically junking a lot of mail. However, I have had messages from valid senders land in my junk mail. If you have had that problem, highlight the message and un-junk them. Spam has gotten more and more ridiculous, so there’s new software to block it, then the spammers change their malicious ploys. It’s The Cycle of Spam. That would be a really good name for a horror movie, by the way. ◗

RULES. EVERYONE BREAKS THEM. Have you ever gone to the gas station and parked in the “no parking zone” right beside the front door? Hey, you only needed to run in and grab a drink anyway, right? I often wonder if I will ever get a ticket for that. Sometimes gas stations are so packed you have no choice. The gas station also educated me on the rule regarding departing the gas pump to drive forward and park to run in and pay — you are supposed to leave your door open with your foot hanging out, so they don’t think for even a second you are about to bail on paying. Bet you didn’t know that! Parking?

Grapevine turns Wilmington into another Greek island WILMINGTON ISLAND USED to be a quiet, sleepy little community. Residential areas were scattered and businesses practically non-existent. Those days have faded, my friend. Subdivisions are springing up left and right, and it seems like a new business is opening up every other day. That growth is music to the ears of Pete Samuelson and Vasili Tsiaras, owners of Grapevine restaurant. “The growth on the Island is wonderful,” says Tsiaris, a Wilmington Island resident for the past 12 years. “When I first moved here, there was almost nothing. Used to be if you needed something, or just wanted to go to eat, you would have to travel off the island. Now there are so many different businesses, you have no reason to leave.” The ‘grapevine’ theme is seen throughout the restaurants interior; it has a very ‘outdoors / indoors’ feel, reminiscent of an actual grape arbor. “The idea for the name of the restaurant was decided by everyone,” says Samuelson (the restaurant venture is a family affair; Samuelson’s wife, Kelli, is Tsaiaris’s wife Loukia’s, aunt). “The grapevine has Greek cultural signifi-

Grapevine also has a variety of appetizer selections, as well as salads and pasta dishes, a wine list featuring an assortment of Greek and Italian wines, and a children’s menu for the kiddies. Most of the desserts at Grapevine are made by Samuelson’s wife, Kelli, and he raves about her baking prowess. “Her baklava is absolutely the best I’ve ever tasted,” he says proudly. Grapevine may be a small restaurant, but Samuelson wouldn’t have it any other way. “Our size and the fact that we are not part of some larger corporation allows us to care. Small businesses have to care, not just about the food, but about the customers,” he says. “We treat each customer like family.” ◗

Harvey’s Bristol Cream -- This Kendall Jackson of sherries fared quite well in a blind taste test. Deliciously sweet and creamy, nutty and caramel-y, like a Spanish flan. Cheap too, making this exploration not so intimidating. Sweetness = 7. $9. ★★★ 1/2 Alvear’s Cream Montilla -- A fantastic sherry from an area not designated “Sherry,” but still makes the same stuff. The label looks like my grandfather bottled it in his garage, but the contents are not amateur. Unctuous like liquid pecan pie, with burnt caramel, sweet honey and an everlasting, lingering flavor of roasted nuts. Amazing deal. Sw = 7. $10. ★★★★

hearty women. My first dry, high-alcohol sherry reminded me of nail polish remover. Being an alcohol wimp, I mostly restrict my imbibing to wine and beer, since scotch and the like pretty much make me wretch (this harks back to childhood when my adventurous friend Ashley and I mixed orange juice and six different spirits into one large, vile concoction and drank it all; needless to say, we didn’t eat for two days and orange juice has never tasted the same.) But until I explored all the different types of sherry — there are 12 altogether — I thought they all fell into that same stomach-turning category. I was wrong. Sherry is a fortified wine, like port, made from white grapes in Southern Spain. There are basically two types of sherry that might concern us sherry neophytes: dry and sweet styles. Dry varieties are fino, amontillado, manzanilla, and oloroso. Smelling faintly of nuts and pungent alcohol, these are for the strong-ofstomach. By adding a sweetener to these dry versions, the winemaker creates sweet sherry, called pale cream or just cream sherry. These are more like port wines — with rich raisin-y, roasted nut and caramel flavors. I swim in these waters. Sherries are made like normal table wines until their fermentation process is complete. After fermentation, they’re fortified with grape-based spirits such as brandy and left in barrels. While they’re maturing, a yeast called “flor” develops on the wines’ surface, which helps prevent oxidation. The thickness of the flor determines the style of sherry each barrel will produce: The thicker the flor, the drier the sherry. Next the sherry is added to a solera for blending. In the unique, traditional solera system, several rows of small oak barrels are stacked on top of each other, with the oldest wines on the bottom.

When it’s time to bottle, a certain amount of each barrel on the bottom row is removed and replaced with sherry from the row immediately above it. This process continues until a complete transfer is made from top to bottom. In this way, consistent character and quality can be achieved from year to year, and they aren’t bothered by vintage years. Here are some ground rules for enjoying sherry. If you’re seeking the dry varieties, find stores that have a high turnover of sherry, since the freshest are the best. Likewise, when ordering by the glass in restaurants, inquire as to how long the bottle has been opened. Drink sherry as soon as possible after opening — within a week for dry sherries and within a month for sweet ones. Recork the bottle immediately after serving to preserve the wine’s freshness, and store it upright in the refrigerator. Finos should be served very cold. Amontillados, olorosos and cream sherries are best at just below room temperature. Sherry is OK by itself, but it’s even better with food. Finos complement tapas, seafood and soups, while amontillado and oloroso go well with spicy foods, nuts and strong Spanish cheeses like Manchego. Serve sweet sherries as dessert or with equally sweet desserts. ◗

Good Fight!, the sophomore CD from this Wisconsin-based Celtic rock group is purportedly a loosely-configured concept album about the sorry state of American politics. I say purportedly, because there are no lyrics included, and the vocals are buried on half the racks, so it feels like the band is blowing their own horn about finally taking a The Kissers strong stance on something (other than traditional ballads and punked-up party music they’re better known for), but deep down is still a little spooked about putting their views on dispaly for all to see. Nevertheless, the musical performances on this record are a noticeable step forward for the group that formed in 1998 as a Pogues tribute group. Since then, they’ve followed the tried and true path of so many Ireland-fixated bands before them: they started picking up on the similarity between that island’s own traditional jigs and the rambunctious snarl of everything from The Clash to The Ramones to continued on page 22

Several years back after a string of hit singles that surprised even their own record label, the Spin Doctors quietly broke up and went their separate ways. And very few cared. In addition to dwindling interest in the sort of vaguely misogynistic feel-good pabulum they were peddling (and the loss of founding member and guitarist Eric Schenkman), lanky front-dude Chris Barron woke up one morning and found that he had pretty much completely lost his voice. The diagnosis? A paralyzed vocal cord. Dispirited, the band was dropped by their label, and quickly vanished into the Where Are They Now File. Wonder of wonders, then that they have reformed with all the original members intact and are now hitting the small club circuit with a vengeance. Or is it? With Barron now sheepishly admitting that – barring any scientific evidence to the contrary – his years of inability to even croak his way through multi-platinum ditties as “Two Princes” and “Little Miss Can’t Be Wrong” may have been the result of a psychosomatic illness, time seems to have healed most of the wounds he and his bandmates suffered as they were forced to trade in their riches for the rags they had on the way in.

Hinesville’s Blues & BBQ Fest w/Tinsley Ellis It’s been a few years since Tinsley Ellis last made a stop in Savannah – at The Roundhouse Blues & BBQ Fest, no less – and since then, he’s undergone something of a career renassiance. A flat-out great blues guitarist and increasingly nuanced singer, he’s been a top draw around these parts since the ‘80s, when he was a focal part of Atlanta blues royalty The Heartfixers (who made a name for themselves on their own, and as a backing band for the renowned R & B shouter Nappy Brown). It’s no exaggeration to say that not too Tinsley Ellis awfully after Stevie Ray Vaughan died unexpectedly, Ellis found himself in rehearsals with that guitar icon’s rhythm section Double Trouble, vetted as a possible new frontman for their power trio. That never came to pass, but over the course of a number of incendiary albums on established labels like Telarc and Alligator, Ellis stepped out of that shadow, and though one never hears him mentioned as playing at the same level as SRV, it’s not odd to hear him mentioned in the same breath. Touring behind his first-ever live CD (which brings him back into the Alligator fold), he’ll no doubt tear up the stage with his flashy Jeff Beck-isms and leave the audience clamoring for more. If you love the blues, but have never seen Tinsley in person – or, never heard of him before – spend the dough and see this show. You will be very glad you did. Admission is only $10. Call (912) 368-4445 for more info. Sat., 8:30 pm, Chamber of Commerce Grounds (500 E. Oglethorpe Hwy, Hinesville).

IN HER SHOES ✰✰✰

Based on the best-selling novel by Jennifer Weiner, In Her Shoes is the sort of movie that gets instantly pigeonholed. Schmaltz-loving women will grab their tissues while Neanderthal males will roll their eyes. But In Her Shoes isn’t designed for any of these people; instead, it will attract viewers who have little use for rigid societal labels and who anticipate a well-crafted blend of comedy and pathos. An initially acrid look at sibling rivalry, the picture stars Cameron Diaz and Toni Collette as Maggie and Rose, two sisters who have nothing in common except their shoe size. Maggie is the outgoing one, pinballing between men, jobs and other people’s couches as she shuns adult responsibilities for endless partying. Rose is the introvert, wallowing in insecurity about her looks while devoting almost every waking hour to her job as a lawyer for a prestigious Philadelphia firm. In this case, the ties that bind have been shredded down to a mere string, one which snaps when Maggie cruelly betrays Rose in an act of astonishing thoughtlessness. Banished by her older sister, Maggie heads to a Florida retirement community to meet Ella Hirsch (Shirley MacLaine), the grandmother she only recently learned she had. It isn’t hard to guess how this will all play out, but the pleasures rest in the journey more than the destination.

TWO FOR THE MONEY ✰1/2

Al Pacino has demonstrated that there’s still some gas in the tank: Marvel at his latterday performances in Insomnia and Heat. But ever since winning that Oscar for Scent of a Woman (still the worst con job ever to snag a Best Actor statue), Pacino has elected to “Hoo-ah!” his way through almost every subsequent role. Pacino’s back in full manic mode in Two for the Money, a malnourished morality tale not dissimilar in structure to the other Pacino vehicles in which he serves as a shady mentor to a hot young actor (The Devil’s Advocate, Donnie Brasco, The Recruit, etc.). Here, he plays Walter Abrams, the head of a sports consulting firm who finds his protege in Brandon Lang (Matthew McConaughey), a former college football star permanently sidelined by a leg injury. With a pro career out of the question, Brandon scrapes together a living at a small Las Vegas betting house, where he picks the winners of the upcoming weekend games. Walter learns of Brandon’s near-psychic ability to correctly handicap the gridiron match-ups and lures him to New York with a substantially better job offer. Under his new boss’ tutelage -- and with Walter’s sharp wife (Rene Russo) also offering expert advice -- Brandon becomes a raging success by providing gamblers with surefire tips, but personality conflicts between the two men threaten to drive both their careers into the ground. The entertainment value in Two for the Money can be found in its incoherence and its ineptitude -- this movie is so ludicrous on so many fundamental levels (unexplained character motivations, clumsy scene transitions) that it almost crosses over into camp territory. Maggie undergoes radical changes as she seeks to better herself, and Diaz is up to the challenge of navigating her character’s trek through uncharted emotions. She’s in top form here, though she’s matched every step of the way by the other featured players. As for MacLaine, her no-nonsense portrayal allows Ella to serve as a necessary counterpoint to her granddaughters, cutting through the girls’ messy outlooks with the sharp steel edge of scrappy experience.

WAITING ✰

Writer-director Rob McKittrick obviously views his pet project as the new Clerks (citing that film as an inspiration in the closing credits), but whereas that Kevin Smith gem featured genuine wit beneath the rampant vulgarity, Waiting is merely puerile, crammed with incessant employment of the “F” word (fag, that is) and featuring more unkempt pubic hair (male and female) than any picture this side of a 50s-era stag film. Ryan Reynolds, recycling every smart-ass cute guy dating back to Tim Matheson in National Lampoon’s Animal House, plays

the veteran employee at Shenanigan’s, an eatery in the Applebee’s/Bennigan’s mold. He’s assigned to show the new kid (John Francis Daley) the ropes, and the story kicks into high gear once he explains to the rookie that every male employee must try to trick the other guys into looking at his exposed genitalia. It’s depressing to see such likable performers as Chi McBride and Justin Long stranded in this toxic dump, but the biggest casualty is Anna Faris -- an adept comedienne in Scary Movie and Lost In Translation, she deserves better than this.

A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE ✰✰✰1/2

OLIVER TWIST ✰✰1/2

This “re-imagining” (as the press material calls it) of the Charles Dickens classic tinkers with the original tale, but deviation from the source material isn’t its primary problem. Instead, it’s that while this timeless tale has been uncorked once again, it isn’t allowed to properly breathe, stewing instead in its own stodginess. Leanne Rowe makes a favorable impression as the ill-fated Nancy, while Ben Kingsley, while never matching Alec Guinness’ peerless portrayal in the Lean version, turns the sniveling thief Fagin into a figure more likely to be pitied than loathed.

Not only the best animated flick of the year but also one of the most enjoyable outings in any genre. In this yarn, Wallace and his silent sidekick have taken it upon themselves to rid their burg’s rabbits by forming a pest control outfit called Anti-Pesto. Using Wallace’s latest invention, the Bun-Vac 6000, the team is able to humanely capture all the bunnies that have been helping themselves to the neighbors’ garden patches.

TIM BURTON’S CORPSE BRIDE ✰✰✰

Based on a Russian folk tale yet set in Victorian England, Corpse Bride finds Johnny Depp as the voice of Victor Van Dort, a shy lad who’s set to marry a shy lass named Victoria Everglot (Emily Watson). While practicing his wedding vows he places the ring on a spindly branch, only to watch in horror as the branch reveals itself to be the finger of a corpse that rises from the ground. This turns out to be Emily (Helena Bonham Carter), a woman who died on her wedding night and who’s been waiting ever since for her true love. Corpse Bride is a marvel of craft and imagination, yet what’s most surprising is its ability to make us care about Bonham Carter’s character.

FLIGHTPLAN ✰✰

Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster), a recent widow catching a flight along with her six-yearold daughter, becomes frantic once the girl disappears during the course of the flight. The entire premise rests on the fact that no one else aboard the plane, from the crew to the passengers, ever once caught a glimpse of the moppet, thereby establishing in their minds Kyle as a woman who’s delusional and possibly dangerous. Director Robert Schwentke exhibits aptitude in his ability to stage confrontations between Kyle and her doubters, while the recreation of a jumbo airliner provides the film with a setting that feels as expansive and full of mystery as Baskerville Hall. ◗

Paul Walker is Jared Cole, an amicable beach bum hoping to find sunken treasure in the Bahamas. Jessica Alba, who wears the same vapid look she displayed earlier this year in Sin City and Fantastic Four, plays Samantha, who’s apparently content simply being Jared’s sweetheart. Along with Jared’s insufferable best friend Bryce (Scott Caan) and his opportunistic girlfriend Amanda (Ashley Scott), they not only discover a sunken pirate ship but also a downed airplane containing millions of dollars worth of cocaine. This is the sort of lowIQ fare in which Alba’s derriere receives more close-ups than her face, yet writer Matt Johnson does make a stab at providing some heft to his script until the inanities finally get the best of him.

INTO THE BLUE ✰1/2

Fans of the short-lived TV series Firefly will want to add another couple of stars to the rating for this big-screen spin-off. But for those who haven’t already built up a rapport with these characters, Serenity is a long slog through sci-fi tedium. This is set 500 years in the future, with the universe under the thumb of the evil Alliance. Its only opposition comes from the crew members of the spaceship Serenity, captained by a cocky scoundrel named Mal (not to be confused with Han Solo). Offering next to nothing in the way of character development or even simple introductions, this is a cinematic flatline, only perking up for a bravura finale.

In the same manner that David Lynch deconstructed the myth of the squeakyclean small Southern town in Blue Velvet, so does director David Cronenberg take a hatchet to the façade of bland Midwestern homeliness. The movie establishes the proper tone from the start, as two men check out of their motel in the grisliest way imaginable. From here, we jump over a few cities to the home of Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen), a hard-working café owner and family man blessed with a devoted wife named Edie (Maria Bello) and two children. Tom’s peaceful existence disappears the night that a pair of strangers bust into his diner with the intention of slaughtering everybody in sight. Tom kills the intruders, which in turn leads to his national status as a hero. This widespread exposure brings more strangers to town -- gruff mobster Carl Fogarty (Ed Harris) and his two flunkies. Viggo Mortensen, formerly a wretched actor who has matured in leaps and bounds these last few years, was a wise choice -it’s impossible to read anything on his passive face, thus making it hard to gauge whether or not he’s telling the truth about his past. Maria Bello shines as the wife who’s forced to confront some unpleasant truths about both her spouse and herself.

Saturn in Leo trines the North Node in Aries from October 16, 2005 to May 7, 2006. Two weeks before Major League Baseball suspended Baltimore Oriole Rafael Palmeiro for violating its policy against steroids, Elliot Smith from The Olympian of Olympia, Washington, who reported upon Palmeiro’s 3000th hit against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field, ended his article, “Palmeiro Passes 3,000” with a quote by Palmeiro, “I want to be remembered as somebody who played the game the right way and someone who respected the game and the history and players who came before me.” Palmeiro’s sentiment was so lofty that former Chicago Cub second

ARIES - You think that you are the absolute best – but is the intent in your heart purer than the driven snow? When the maiden slaps your face, apologize – nothing less than selfless heroics, pure love & honorable deeds!

baseman Ryne Sandberg echoed it, in his own unique way, in his speech accepting induction into the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York – one day before the announcement of Palmeiro’s suspension, “The reason I am here, they tell me, is that I played the game a certain way, that I played the game the way it was supposed to be played. I don’t know about that, but I do know this: I had too much respect for the game to play it any other way, and if there was a single reason I am here today, it is because of one word, ‘respect’.”

LEO - You can only express reproach by asserting what is proper, in the tone of a lawyer who says to the judge, “Your honor, perhaps I misunderstand, but am I to believe that the court finds such statements & behavior to be proper & correct?” Noblesse oblige!

TAURUS - If you insist upon telling the truth to the Devil – after you call the Devil by his real name – then the Devil will retaliate. Don’t play games of brinkmanship with those who have no honor.

GEMINI - As long as you insist that vendors & employees do the right thing in the correct way at the right time, then you will enjoy the support of all the right allies. As you do, accept thanks but eschew flattery. Tell everybody, “Keep it real.”

CANCER - If you need a raise, you stand to lose if you draw more attention to yourself than to that outstanding job that you are doing (you are doing an outstanding job, right?).

VIRGO - Because you cannot respond to accusations that you will never hear, you must behave & speak in an exemplary manner. On occasion, indirectly, you will learn what subterfuge you have overcome – but only if you overcome it. LIBRA - Partners will not heed your instructions until you communicate them through allies. Therefore, allow allies the latitude to express undiplomatic, blunt, unsparing criticism. You don’t need an alarm clock to issue a wake-up call! SCORPIO - You now have an opportunity to get in the good graces of demanding bosses by obeying their instructions perfectly. Therefore, don’t be insulted by

left-handed compliments – you’d be suspicious if everybody treated you too nicely.

SAGITTARIUS - Writers: if you have informed worldviews about war, the military or the future of young men in our society, then write newspaper articles, a book or a play that provokes public opinion. However, avoid posturing – because “instant karma” will definitely get you.

CAPRICORN - All sorts of business partners can put enormous, outright rude pressure upon you, your finances & your ownership of property. Comply – and let them have the last word. AQUARIUS - You need not act according to anybody’s standards besides your own. You’ve already done it – and you’ve done it much better than them. PISCES - Insulting colleagues need to learn what is proper & what is not. Do the right thing in the right way – and let bosses know that you are doing so. Shine your light brightly against other people’s darkness. ◗

When it comes time to finance your first home, you should be able to work with a mortgage professional who will provide you with great rates, the perfect loan product and no hassles.

Before you go to settlement on a new home, you and your builder will “walk through” the house to conduct a final inspection. The walkthrough provides an opportunity for you to learn how your new home works and to spot items that need to be corrected or adjusted. Often, a builder will use the walk-through to inform buyers about: The operation of the house’s components. The buyer’s responsibilities for maintenance and upkeep. Warranty coverage and procedures. The larger community in which the home is located. When you buy a new appliance or piece of equipment, such as a washing machine, you usually have to read the instructions before you can understand how to use all of the features. With a new house, you will be receiving a stack of instruction booklets all at once. It helps if someone can take the time to show you how to operate all of the kitchen appliances, the heating and cooling systems, the water heater, and other features in the home. Such an orientation is particularly useful considering that when moving into a new home, people often are so busy that they have trouble finding time to read instruction booklets. Learning about maintenance and upkeep responsibilities is very important. Most new homes come with a one-year warranty on workmanship and materials. However, such warranties do not cover problems that develop because of failure to perform required maintenance. Many builders provide a booklet explaining common upkeep responsibilities and how to perform them. Should a warranted problem arise after you move in, the builder is likely to have a set of warranty service procedures to follow. Except in emergencies, requests for service should be in writing. This is not because the builder is trying to be bureaucratic. Rather, it is to ensure that everyone clearly understands the service to be performed. The person receiving a service request is not likely to be the person performing the work, and you don’t want to rely on word of mouth for transmission of your service order. Many builders schedule two visits during the first year — one near the beginning and the other near the end — to make necessary adjustments and to perform work of a non-emergency nature. You should not expect a builder to rush out immediately for a problem such as a nail pop in your drywall. Such problems occur because of the natural settling of the house and are best addressed in one visit near the end of the first year. If you have moved to a new home from a nearby area, you probably will not spend much time at the walk-through talking about the larger community in which the home is located. However, if you are moving to a new community, a builder can often provide a packet of material to help you become acclimated. With respect to inspecting the house, an effective way to handle this is with a checklist. The list should include everything that needs attention, and you and your builder should agree to a timetable for repairs. Builders prefer to remedy problems before you move in, because it is easier for them to work in an empty house. Some items may have to be corrected after move-in. For instance, if your walk-through is in the winter, your builder may have to delay landscaping adjustments until spring. It is important that you be very thorough and observant during the walk-through. Carefully examine all surfaces of counters, fixtures, floors and walls for possible damage. Sometimes, disputes arise because a buyer may discover a gouge in a counter top after move-in, and there is no way to prove whether it was caused by the builder’s workers or the buyer’s movers. Many builders ask their buyers to sign a form at the walk-through stating that all surfaces have been inspected and that there was no damage other than what has been noted on the walk-through checklist. Ask a lot of questions during the walk-through and take notes on the answers. Never be afraid to appear stupid by asking too many questions. That is how you learn. It is important to view the walk-through as a positive learning experience that will enhance your enjoyment of your home.

DON’T GET CAUGHT IN THIS WEB! When you think of “online shopping,” you envision browsing through pages of results for clothing, music cds and movie dvds, collectibles, sporting merchandise, almost anything you can imagine. But what about your home? Are you going to add a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath with fenced yard to your “shopping cart” and proceed to checkout with your credit card information? It may seem like a ridiculous scenario, but the reason people look for (and sell) things online is the convenience. It may seem harmless enough to browse the offerings on “For Sale By Owner” websites, but be wary of the information presented there. Like elsewhere on the web, misinformation abounds.

If you want to begin your search from the comfort of home while relaxing in your pajamas, start by looking at what licensed real estate agencies are offering. You can find “virtual tours” and links to neighborhood information that are backed up by the agency offering the listings. As it stands right now, you don’t get much protection from do-ityourself listing sites. Be aware that these “For Sale By Owner” websites are not yet regulated and not held to the same high standards that you expect from a real estate professional. The Internet might be a great place to start your research, but ultimately meet with a professional face-to-face to guarantee both your legal rights and home buying satisfaction.
