adults some of the footage he has shot. For a variety of reasons, the two other teens depicted get less — and less effective — screen time than Alex. Though we hear from Kelby Johnson, a 16-year-old from Tuttle, Okla., who was ostracized when she came out as a lesbian, we do not see her being taunted. And young Ja’Meya Jackson of Yazoo County, Miss., who took her mother’s handgun to her school bus to stop chronic bullying, is in so much trouble that we hardly hear from her at all. “Bully” is not comprehensive, the more modern torments of cyber bullying are not much dealt with, and it can feel haphazard as it jumps back and forth between its subjects. Still, the film’s cumulative force is considerable, and, more than that, it shows the efficacy of a recent “I Stand for the Silent” campaign that encourages all kids to speak up when they see bullying taking place. Maybe, this film suggests, getting power to the powerless is not as impossible as it sounds.

The people behind ‘Bully’ BY JEn CHAnEY The Washington Post Before filmmaker Lee Hirsch began shooting the documentary “Bully,” he walked into a school board meeting in Sioux City, Iowa, and asked for permission to film students and staff for months, while retaining full editorial control. “We need to be in buses, classrooms, in the halls for one year,” Hirsch recalls telling officials that evening in 2008. “And we’re going to tell an honest story about what we find. And they agreed.” “Bully” aims to show what teen bullying looks like in contemporary America, in all its cruelty. Shot beginning in 2009 in Iowa, Oklahoma, Georgia and Mississippi, the film focuses on five families coping with the daily abuse their kids experience under the noses of sometimes apathetic administrators. Two of those

families lost sons to suicide. To capture incredibly personal details, Hirsch needed unlimited access. Surprisingly, worried parents, tormented students and imageconscious educators were willing to grant it. As “Bully” prepared to open, some participants explain why they did. The parents of 12-year-old Alex Libby, a gangly, irrepressibly innocent Sioux City boy who has become the de facto face of “Bully,” believed the experience might help their withdrawn son. Alex has Asperger’s and at the time of filming was mired in a two-year depression, his mother said. “Bully” reveals the intensity of Alex’s abuse. Hirsch’s cameras captured kids bashing his head into seats, stabbing him with pencils and threatening to kill him. Things got so dire that Hirsch ultimately showed the more disturbing footage

to staff members at Sioux City’s East Middle School and to Alex’s parents. Paul Gausman, superintendent of the Sioux City Community School District, said officials granted access, with approvals from individual parents, because of a longstanding partnership with the Waitt Institute for Violence Prevention. A partner on the film, the institute has spent years helping implement anti-bullying curricula in Sioux City schools. “We had hoped that some of our success and some of our triumphs to prevent bullying would have made it into the film,” Gausman admits. “Am I disappointed that certain scenes in the film show us in a less-than-positive light? Of course I am,” Gausman said. “But I believe this district was willing to stick our chin out there just a little bit because this is that important.”

Oscar and alpha male Freddy

Disney swings for the trees with ‘Chimpanzee’

By RogeR MooRe McClatchy-Tribune News Service


isney’s 2012 movie offering for earth Day is a gorgeous and technically dazzling look inside the world of chimpanzees: their use of tools, their nurturing instincts, their means of organization during fights and hunts for smaller monkeys, whom they sometimes eat. But “Chimpanzee” is also a throwback, a documentary that follows a baby chimp named oscar as he struggles to learn the ways of his tribe and to survive in the dense rain forests of Africa’s Ivory Coast. It’s moving and entertaining as well as informative. And as Tim Allen narrates and the chimps themselves provide moments of low comedy and high pathos, you might be reminded of the studio’s popular “True Life Adventures” nature docs of the last century, films that humanized, sometimes to the point of cloying, their wild and untamed subjects. In a vast, fog-enshrouded jungle, we meet baby oscar, his mom, Isha, and the chimp in charge of this tribe, Freddy, an alpha male tasked with

They’ve learned to use rocks and sticks to open the nuts. But despite this advantage, the vast “army” of chimps led by one-eyed “Scar” (of course) threatens to chase them to the hinterlands, where the food promises to be more scarce. If you see allegories in human behavior among our primate cousins, take that as purely intentional, too. Allen’s narration makes this kid-friendly film even more

so, though the script does tend toward underscoring that which is made obvious by the images on the screen. And since these chimpanzees use tools, you know “Tool Time” Allen will join them in a healthy grunt or two. But that doesn’t spoil what is a lovely film, all extreme close-ups of chimps grooming, eating (with their mouths open), working out which rocks or sticks are good for cracking nuts and which aren’t. Watching the chimps hunt tiny monkeys (nothing remotely graphic is shown) for food is a lesson in roleplaying, teamwork and elementary tactics. We see them build their intricate “sleeping platforms” at night, wash their food and pass down knowledge from parents to children. Nature itself makes a glorious set as we’re treated to stunning shots of fluorescent mushrooms and dazzling little-known waterfalls. After the omnibus documentary “earth” and the broader “African Cats” (by the same filmmakers), Disney may have hit on just the right mix of information and entertainment with “Chimpanzee,” the best Disneynature film yet.

he fridge comes stocked with several aloe juice drinks, while the TV relays programming from The Filipino Channel. Sure, the surroundings might give away the cafe’s roots, but the title leaves no doubt. The Filipino Cafe and Bakery, owned by nonah garcia, sits in a corner of the Piggly Wiggly shopping center off Rivers Avenue in north Charleston. It’s a small place, with just enough room for three or four tables, most joined together in a communal fashion. Various sundries are available, red bean cakes, for instance, but the cafe and bakery tends to the obvious: Filipino delicacies and breads. Here, you can try something traditional such as fried, salted spot and rice or pusit, the chewy squid dish marinated in soy sauce, vinegar and seasonings prior to grilling. And naturally, adobo, one of the Philippines’ national dishes, receives star billing. At the cafe, the pork

adobo is cooked bone-in and braised in soy sauce and vinegar and the dish presented in a small bowl containing the marinade. Each entree additionally comes with a generous portion of rice in a Styrofoam container. Breads range from pan de coco, a sweet, tasty treat with a coconut filling, to ensaymada, a buttery pastry shaped into a pinwheel and typically topped with cream, sugar and grated cheese. For dessert, the Filipino Cafe and Bakery also makes a yummy halo-halo, a milky, mixed fruit dish with sago pearls. Its consistency is similar to ambrosia salad, only it’s sweeter. And here’s a bonus: The bill was easy on the wallet. My meal — pork adobo, grilled pusit and rice, plus the sour pork soup and pan de coco — cost about $7. now, that might turn some heads.

Iacofano’s Bistro & Bar

The post and courier

Italian fare is served up with a local touch By DeiDre Schipani Special to The Post and Courier


or chef/owner John iacofano, the marinara, well, it runs in his blood. he is a third-generation restaurateur following in the footsteps of his grandfather, also John iacofano, who ran Johnny’s room 24 outside cleveland. cleveland is home to a strong italian-american community, and i suspect that the photo of the First communicants at holy rosary church that hangs on the wall of iacofano’s is a family treasure. you see, holy rosary church is the heart and soul of cleveland’s Little italy. This was the city where the first home handcranked pasta machine was invented by angelo Vitantonio, and the residents continue traditional celebrations and feast days. young John worked with his grandfather and father and set his sights on a culinary career. he went to Johnson & Wales University and in 2001 opened a deli in north charleston and West ashley. in 2005, he opened iacofano’s in Mount pleasant. Over the winter, he spruced up the interior and reopened as iacofano’s Bistro & Bar. On the menu? The staples of the italian-american food culture along with a commitment to seasonal and local products. Look for produce from ambrose, Blackbird and Thackeray family farms, catch of the day from abundant Seafood and bread from Saffron Bakery. iacofano also has the Lunch academy by iacofano, catered by iacofano, Johnny Q’s BBQ and Oyster roast catering, and JLi catering and events. With family roots in campobasso in the region of Molise, italy, you will see the liberal use of lamb in his cooking along with polenta, chile peppers and “diavolillo,” hot peppers. This is a kitchen where the pasta is made from scratch,

Our server was wellinformed on the nuances of the menu and well-schooled in the preparations and presentation of each dish. We began with a grilled calamari ($9) appetizer that was first rate. The squid was grilled and cut into strips and then finished with olive oil, lemon, pickled cherry peppers, oregano and chickpeas. it was garnished with fine chile pepper threads that lent a sweet heat to the dish. This tangle of squid was bold and fiery. not to be missed are the veal-ricotta meatballs ($7). Tender, flavorful orbs of ground veal are held together with ricotta cheese, simmered in a smooth tomato sauce and garnished with

pecorino romano cheese. They also are available with house-made linguini ($16). Salads are generous in size ($5-$9), and the spring season features a local strawberry and baby lettuce salad with hazelnuts, goat cheese and hibiscus vinaigrette ($8). The menu is well-balanced with italian classics such as old-school lasagna layered with sausage, lamb, ricotta and mozzarella cheeses ($17), as well as chicken parmesan ($16), linguini and meatballs ($16) and a seafood risotto ($23) with local shrimp and diver scallops. The vegetables are local and seasonal, and the kitchen offers a seasonal vegetable plate for $14. Farro and polenta share equal billing with the pastas. Our server’s favorite, grilled hanger steak ($21) with roasted cremini mush-

rooms and onions, was served sliced and plated over creamy polenta and sauced with a vin cotto reduction. The “cooked wine” was a bit sweet for my taste, but the dish was substantial and cooked as ordered. The pan-roasted local flounder ($22) earned high marks for presentation and taste. a thick portion of fish was lightly crumbed and pan-seared. it was stacked over a green pea risotto and topped with a slaw of shaved fennel and radish. The flavors played off each other, and the hibiscus-honey vinaigrette brought the right notes of sweet and tart to the fish and rice. Berkshire pork is featured in the pork belly ($20) and pork ragout ($12, $18); young chicken is simply grilled ($17) and finished with a lemon-thyme seasoned pan sauce. The portions are generous, and most guests were seen leaving with leftovers in tow. Bread is served warm and combines a crunchy crust and well-developed crumb and is the perfect foil for mopping up your plate, which you will be doing, as well as dipping in the seasoned oil amplified with cheese and chiles. Morgan Vineyards, out of St. helena, calif., bottles the private label wine for the restaurant and it is nicely priced at $6.50 per glass, $22 per bottle. Desserts are remarkably un-italian: blueberry cheesecake, chocolate-hazelnut tart and an apple cake ($6) that we ordered. a bit of overkill there: apple cake, cream cheese frosting, whipped cream topping, salted caramel sauce and Boone hall Farm’s strawberries. Too many tangled tastes on a slice of cake. chef iacofano has brought new life to his former deli and presents careful preparations of humble italianamerican fare. he does his father and grandfather proud and celebrates the Lowcountry with local and seasonal sourcing.

C of C professor talks shop


’ve quietly watched Herb Parker’s career over the past few years and must say I’m so impressed by this sculpture professor who teaches at the College of Charleston. He has done amazing things throughout the world. Karen Ann Myers of the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art said, “Parker has participated in over 50 site-specific installations in the landscape since the early 1980s, creating pieces in botanical gardens, a centuries old Japanese temple, universities, urban centers and museums around the world. The artist states that his ‘nature-based installations are created to enhance a viewer’s perception of the environment and our relationship with nature.’ “Herb Parker combines the art of architecture and sculpture with the beauty of landscape to create organic sculptural installations that resemble grass houses or temples made from lawns. His art com-

The labyrinth was made with sod, steel, stone, earth, plants, and mulch. bines the beauty of nature’s ‘materials’ with easily recognizable man-made structures, which give off an ethereal, contemplative feeling,” continues Myers. And Parker states, “The nature-based work speaks in a hybrid language from three distinct realms: architecture (experience), sculpture (concept) and landscape (medium).” My layman’s reaction to his works of art is simply that is just so cool! His sculptures are not just visually interesting, but many of them are also creations that people can actually walk on or in and physically interact with. A double “cool” in layman-speak.

Find out how he does it with a free artist lecture at 6 tonight in Room 309 of the Simons Center for the Arts, 54 St. Philip St. The public may attend. Immediately following the lecture, there will be a reception at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art, 161 Calhoun St.

Sail, from E20

Most sailors have been groomed toward an affinity for the sport’s signature cocktail, the Dark ’n’ Stormy, a Bermudan-born amalgam of dark rum, ginger beer and a pinch of lime. The drinks will be poured by the dozen at the daily post-race beach parties. Over the weekend, Draftz estimates that attendees consume 260 gallons of Gosling’s Rum — about a gallon per boat — and peel through 150 pounds of limes. “It’s scary,” laughs Draftz. “I think it’s the widest disbursement of Gosling’s anywhere.” The imbibing doesn’t occur on the water. Even local sailors who breezily compete in the association’s Wednesday race series step up their game for Race Week. Still, evenings at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina at Patriots Point allow for some serious reveling. Tickets to the on-shore events are available via a weekend pass, which includes dinner, an open rum and beer bar, and live music each night. Thursday’s lineup features Ben Fagan and Friends, with 17 South taking the stage on Friday. There also are daily bocce and cornhole tournaments. For people not seeking a four-day commitment, Saturday night’s beach party is available as a stand-alone ticket, with music by Calvin Taylor and the ubiquitous all-you-can-drink Gosling’s. Saturday afternoon will be highlighted with a display of the “oldest trophy in international sport,” America’s Cup.

Sailboat racing is always colorful, as shown by this 40-footer hoisting their spinnaker sail.

Tight racing in years past has dominated the inshore fleets, with just inches often separating racing boats. trophies’ metal sails with the Sperry Top-Sider logo and the CORA flag, flying over a hand-carved wooden skiff. “It’s a Charleston-oriented trophy that people will want to win,” Draftz said. “It’s not something they’ll just put off on a bookcase somewhere.” File photographs/staFF

Tom Ehman, Golden Gate Yacht Club (they currently hold the cup) vice commodore and 32-year America’s Cup veteran, will be on hand at 1 p.m. to present a kid-friendly multimedia presentation of the historic race’s history and its latest developments. Speaking of trophies, Race Week underwent an upgrade this year thanks to Isle of Palms-based sculptor Fred Moore, who emblazoned the

By sea

For a contest with no cash prizes, the level and variety of competition are staggering. This year’s series includes six courses, including an open ocean cruising category. Sail Magazine even got behind the event, sponsoring a Best Around the Buoys contest, won by a Florida team whose trip to Charleston is provided by the magazine and CORA. Six foreign teams have registered, representing

Sweden, the U.K., France and Bermuda. Eighty-five percent of the boats are from somewhere out of town. Nevertheless, Charleston teams often manage to beat the out-of-town entrants on their home waters. Don Terwilliger, a local engineer, has watched Race Week grow from a small locals event into a major regatta, racing on three different boats over 11 years of competing. He won his class two years ago with the boat Dauntless, “and a whole lot of second place finishes, every other year.” “Last year, we were racing against our friends on Big Booty (another Charlestonbased team) and went out the first day and got three first place finishes out of three races,” recalls Terwilliger. “We had to go in really

light winds the next day, which is not our forte with Dauntless, and watched the first place slip away from us by Sunday.” With more boats and more categories, Terwilliger anticipates some of the tightest races ever this year, with finishes within 15 or 20 seconds of each other. “There’s a buzz around the marina for the whole week or two leading up to the race, with the local guys tweaking their boats and everybody from out of town rolling in,” Terwilliger said. “This is our big event for the year, and we’re fortunate that we don’t have to travel to participate.” Offshore races launch from the harbor each morning at 8 a.m., with in-harbor racing beginning at 11 a.m. More than 350 staff and

volunteers work the event, including 150 in-water staff who set buoys and carefully time and document each boat’s rounding time. Whenever the wind shifts, the whole course must be quickly reset. “These guys are super busy all day long,” Draftz said, adding that the Coast Guard is on hand to help keep the race courses clear of other boat traffic. Still, spectators with their own boats are welcome to watch the action from the water. “You can get pretty close and get a good idea of what’s going on,” Draftz said. To view the races from land, organizers suggest watching from the regatta village at Patriots Point or from Demetre (Sunrise) Park on James Island.

Donald Glover WeirDo/ent. one MuSic

Lindsay Holler has always been a local musician who could be counted on to do her own thing musically and bare her soul while creating and performing that music. Her latest project, “Oh! Ginger,” continues that trend. A collaboration with Michael Hanf, who previously played with Holler in the Dirty Kids, Oh! Ginger’s self-titled debut EP is a wonderful mixture of music styles that doesn’t really sound like anything Holler or Hanf have released, and yet has a comfortable sense of the familiar nonetheless. “Dust,” the EP’s leadoff track, features hauntingly distorted vocals by both artists over a simple guitar melody. “End Over End” takes on a jazzier feel, with Holler’s vocals blending well with Hanf’s vibraphone, while “Don’t Call Me,” which finds Hanf taking over lead vocals, has a folkier flavor. A little reverb on Holler’s exquisitely rich voice adds a dreamlike quality to “On the Inside,” and the EP concludes nicely with “Where We Stand,” a lovely song that reminds you of early Wilco or late Whiskeytown. The best thing about the EP is that it’s all killer and no filler. Holler and Hanf have promised two more EPs later in the year, and if those collections of songs are even half as good as what’s on “Oh! Ginger,” then I eagerly await the next installment.

If you’re a fan of the TV sitcom “Community,” then you’re no doubt familiar with Donald Glover, who plays Troy Barnes, the geek trapped in a jock’s body. Glover, who also writes for another NBC comedy, “30 Rock,” wears many hats in the entertainment field. At the beginning of the performance that was recorded for his new album, “Weirdo,” Glover asks the audience if they’re familiar with his character from “Community.” “Just so you guys know, this is going to be nothing like that,” says Glover. “It’s going to be a lot grosser.” True to his word, Glover isn’t shy with letting the expletives fly. The amount of language is nowhere near the level of more established comedians but this is definitely an R-rated album. Language aside, Glover definitely has material that is funny and, perhaps most importantly, original. Amusing is his observance of how musicians have the only job where sampling their own product seems egotistical, explaining that no one bats an eye when a sandwich maker makes himself a sandwich, but if you listen to your own album in your car, you’ll get called out. Listening to Glover’s philosophy on various subjects definitely shows the listener why he is currently one of the comedy world’s fastest rising stars.

Wilson Phillips DeDicateD/ Sony MaSterWorkS Recently in the news there was an item about the children of the members of The Beatles wanting to form a rock band of their own. While the idea seems intriguing at first, I strongly urge those famous offspring to scrap the idea. Why, you ask? Two words: Wilson Phillips. The group includes Chynna Phillips, daughter of John and Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, and Wendy and Carnie Wilson, daughters of Beach Boy Brian Wilson. The trio’s 1990 selftitled debut sold several million copies thanks to the singles “Hold On” and “Release Me.” On Wilson Phillips’ latest effort, “Dedicated,” the singers have dispensed with any original material, choosing instead to cover songs made famous by their parents. The even sadder fact is that this is not the first time these ladies have released an album of covers. Listening to the sanitized versions of “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and “Monday Monday” makes Wilson Phillips the poster children for the argument against the offspring of famous musicians forming their own bands. I understand they are trying to cash in on the unexpected bit of rediscovery after their appearance in the film “Bridesmaids,” but seriously, why listen to this when the vastly superior original versions are readily available.

hen music fans start listing the greatest guitar players of all time, there are certain names that inevitably come up. Jimi hendrix, eric Clapton and eddie van halen are a few of the no-brainers who should always make the top 10. when Rolling Stone magazine compiled its own list last year, many rock fans noted the absence of warren haynes. while haynes wasn’t on the main list, he was involved in the voting, and when Rolling Stone editor david Fricke compiled his own list, he placed haynes at no. 23, just ahead of U2’s The edge and right behind the late Mike Bloomfield. talking by phone from his hotel room in asheville with Charleston Scene, haynes acknowledges the honor, but is also quick to shrug it off. “I was obviously honored and flattered to be on that list, especially that high,” said haynes, who performs with the warren haynes Band tonight at the Charleston Music hall. “But you have to take those things with a grain of salt because they’re someone’s opinion. you can’t really place people in order like

Mayer Hawthorne

There’s a freshness in Mayer hawthorne, something that is much more rare than the cliche phrase itself. It’s a feat that the Michigan native accomplishes by reaching into the past to slingshot himself into new territory. Perhaps what makes hawthorne (born andrew Mayer Cohen) so appealing is his doing so many things right: the bridging of retro and modern, the weaving of styles, the honesty and irony. hawthorne drags his life with him, collecting new

Phil Lesh & Friends and The dead. In addition to playing with those bands, haynes seems to pop up frequently at other artist’s shows. This fall at the Southern Ground Music and Food Festival on daniel Island, haynes joined headliner Zac Brown Band onstage for a few songs, including an incredible cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably numb.”

So why does he feel the need to be one of rock ’n’ roll’s biggest overachievers? “I’m just grateful for the various opportunities that have come along, and it’s also not wanting to turn down something that I might look back on later and say, ‘I wish I’d done that,’ ” haynes said. when asked about his frequent collaborations with other bands, such as

ACE’s on bridgE


Jeff Bateman

In today’s deal you could argue that West might have raised to four spades over South’s four hearts, but West was not sure at this vulnerability what the size of the penalty might be. As it was, he passed, and North bid five hearts as a general try, focusing on spades more than anything else. South looked at his quick tricks and accepted the invitation. In this position one should pass with no control, and cue-bid five spades with the ace and anything but a dead minimum. You can use your discretion with a second-round control, typically bidding slam unless you are otherwise unsuitable. Against six hearts, when the spade three was led to the jack and 10, East insulted declarer

by trying to cash the spade ace, perhaps not seeing the downside of this move. South ruffed the second spade high, and now it was an easy matter to cross to dummy with a trump and lead the spade queen to pin the nine and establish the eight for a discard. Of course if the spade nine had not fallen, declarer would have been reduced to taking the club finesse for his contract, and today would not have been his lucky day. Had the spade nine and eight been switched, declarer could have husbanded the entries to dummy and have brought about this position for himself without any help from the defenders after the opening lead.

Ex-wife can’t take man’s talk about girlfriend

Sustain your brain with Earth Day trivia


BY REBEkAH BRADfORD Special to The Post and Courier


arth Day is April 22, and this year’s message is to “Mobilize the Earth” by standing united in the quest to have a more sustainable future and to demand positive action in that direction by our leaders. Last week, Jenna Byers won against a longtime Head2Head Trivia champ. This week, her opponent, Jason Andrews, is looking for his first victory.


Earth Day isn’t all about dirt, but it sure is a fun part of it.

QUESTIONS 1. When was the first Earth Day celebrated? 2. What was the world’s first established national park? 3. Name the environmental activist who recently spoke at the Sottile Theatre and who has organized demonstrations against the Keystone XL pipeline? 4. What percentage of the world’s population is without safe drinking water? 5. One bus carries as many people as how many cars? 6. Where was Greenpeace founded? 7. Name the island nation that is just 8 feet above sea level and whose recently ousted president tried to call the world’s attention to the dangers of climate change. 8. Where was the first major international conference on environmental issues? 9. Of all the water on Earth, what percentage is fresh water? 10. How many trees are saved for every ton of paper recycled?

CONCLUSION Jenna racks up her second victory in a row with a win over Jason. Can she make it to three? We’ll have to wait until next week to find out. In the meantime, if you’re looking for ideas of what to do for Earth Day or just ways to live a greener lifestyle, check out www.

EAR ABBY: My exhusband likes to call to ask me for advice. Our most recent conversation was in regard to his girlfriend and her sexual past, which he knew about before they started dating. He now disapproves of her history and he began calling her unpleasant names. He tells me he deserves better but intends to stay with her until he gets bored. Hearing this sort of talk gives me a stomachache and heartburn. I feel terrible for the woman. I want to be a friend to my ex, but I’m not sure I can handle the stress. Is the only solution not to take his calls, like my friends tell me? I’m not sure I can do that without major guilt. — WISCONSIN READER DEAR READER: I’ll offer

DEAR ABBY another option: The next time your ex starts asking you for relationship advice, tell him you don’t like hearing the way he talks about his girlfriend. Explain that it makes you so uncomfortable that you prefer to avoid the topic. If he respects your wishes, continue taking his calls. If not, refuse them. And please, stop feeling guilty about the divorce. From your description, your former husband is a user, and you’re lucky to be rid of him.
