hird Thursday in summerville, a monthly mainstay, kicks things up a notch by debuting a new event: the summerville sweet tea festival. The festival, which is being put on by the newly formed summerville restaurant association, will feature 11 local restaurants set up in tents on hutchinson square offering tastes of their versions of sweet tea, as well as tastes of their menu specialties for $1-$3 each. purchase a commemorative mug for $5 and you can try all the restaurants’ sweet tea drinks for free and vote for your favorite.

run for the coast or swim around it w

hile the Lowcountry is known for its gorgeous spring, my favorite time of year is early autumn. it’s still warm but not hot, and tourism has eased up a bit, and yet there’s plenty to do. and this first weekend of autumn is jam-packed with healthy, wholesome fun stuff to do outside.

run for the coast

new this fall is the run for the coast, a 10K “eco run” at 8 a.m. saturday on folly Beach. The event, organized by Jeremy wasko, benefits one of my favorite local groups, the charleston chapter of the surfrider foundation. “i created run for the coast this past spring because of my love for running, an active lifestyle and my support for sustainability and environmental initiatives, which is why i chose surfrider foundation as the beneficiary,” wasko said. “i want everyone to really appreciate nature and the outdoors, and not just help protect it but embrace it.” wasko said efforts being taken to make the race “green” include recycling and composting at the race; recycled race bibs from recycleracing.com; eliminating water bottles and plastic by providing water in jugs; utilizing organic and recyclable race materials for t-shirts, race bags, cups and advertisements; and having a beach sweep following the race to pick up any garbage/ items that may have been left on the course.

Home& actor gives us an urban Garden Sundays in take on Judge dredd By roger Moore MCT

t

he British comic book “Judge dredd” made its debut in the mid1970s, starring a helmeted lawman who was judge, jury and executioner in a nearly lawless anarchy of the future. coming out in the recessionwracked ’70s, when civil unrest was common in the u.K., u.s. and other corners of the west, one might have seen it as a celebration of a kind of “dirty harry” justice: simple, bloody solutions to sociocriminal ills. or maybe it was “a satirical response to Thatcherism,” said actor Karl urban, who stars as the judge in a new 3-d movie, “dredd 3d,” in theaters friday. (Margaret Thatcher wasn’t prime minister of Britain until 1979, but she was a well-known figure in mid-’70s Britain, already the head of the conservative party there.) and what about dredd today? “dredd is perfectly placed in our times,” said urban, best-known for playing dr. Leonard “Bones” Mccoy in the new big screen “star trek” franchise. “our film is the perfect representation of the character that (author) John wagner created back in ’75. in our movie, i see dredd as a response to social unrest that’s erupted globally, and to society’s response to that unrest. dredd is set in a world where the justice system has been given absolute power, the power to summarily execute a perp on the spot. “since the creation of dredd, one can argue that there’s been a continual escalation of Big Brother, watching over all of us, a steady erosion of civil rights,” he said. “unfortunately, incidents like 9/11 have given us laws like The patriot act, a necessity for this day and age. “Thematically, dredd was

Karl urban stars as Judge Dredd in “Dredd 3D.” ahead of his time.” The 40-year-old new Zealander endured months in a gym and weeks in a south african boot camp to get in shape to play the judge. after all, he’s following sylvester stallone, the character’s previous big screen alter-ego. The bigger challenge, urban said, was acting behind a helmet and mask. “it’s a challenge to communicate with the audience without the use of my eyes,” he said. “i had to use every other tool i have available to me. obviously, the voice takes on heightened significance. as does the physicality, the way the character carries himself. it was important to me to know what humanized dredd. he’s just a man. he’s not a robot, not a superhero. he has no special powers. Just gadgets. it was important to me to know where his sense of humor lay, what angers him, what amuses him and what he does when he’s tired, or when he’s pumped up.” The film is earning early praise from comic book fan websites, and even the trade publication Variety noted that it “reinstates the somber

lionsgate

brutality missing from the u.K. comic book icon’s previous screen outing.” urban hopes “we’ve made an instant cult classic. But let’s be honest, movies like this that open in september don’t do nearly the box office that summer films do. so while i would be delighted to play the character again, if it’s just a one-off experience, i’m still proud of it.” Besides, urban already has two franchises, maybe three, to which he has obligations. he returns as Mccoy in the next “star trek” film, “star trek into darkness,” in 2013. he’s a part of the Vin diesel “chronicles of riddick” series. he may even reprise his secret agent role in the sequel to “red,” the Bruce willis/helen Mirren action comedy. But it’s Mccoy where his long-term plans lay, a character he lobbied hard for the chance to play, and a role he relishes. “Think about it,” he said. “They’re action films, with heroes. and Mccoy isn’t really heroic. he’s got this comic humanity that makes him stand out in that universe. who wouldn’t love playing that?”

Spruce things up.

way it used to be. and it feels good when director Lorenz also brings his star back to the sort of working class settings — southern honkytonks, pool halls, cheap motels, cut-rate sports facilities — where his characters used to spend a good deal of time. in a modest, appealing way, “trouble with the curve” is another last-standof-the-old-timers movie, which might include “gran torino,” “space cowboys” and “in the Line of fire,” with eastwood as actor and sometimes director, in which experience, intuition and character get to carry the day against technology, numbers and other newfangled developments. even though he’s still in the minors, the outsized gentry amusingly carries on as if he already knows he’s the new century’s Babe ruth, refusing to low-five his third-base coach when he hits homers and boasting of glories to come.

This is a handsomely directed film; there’s a nice crispness to the pacing and images, as Lorenz keeps things moving briskly. adams scores as the career woman who’s a tomboy at heart and discovers some new horizons by breaking with her routine. timberlake is energetic but too puppy-doggish as her

eager suitor; given Johnny’s background as a failed would-be baseball player, some shades of regret and disappointment would have deepened the character. distinctive character actors such as goodman; Matthew Lillard, playing a Braves scouting executive contemptuous of gus’ antiquated ways; and robert patrick, as the team’s hardnosed gM, are hardly tested but lend weight to the supporting cast. But, of course, the show belongs to eastwood. still physically fit enough to pitch to his daughter for fun, gus may be an anachronism, but like the actor who plays him, he remains a force to contend with.

But at least you have an advantage of having an editor afterwards.” The two laughed, but during the interview, there were moments when Lorenz’s tight grin looked suspiciously like the silver-medalist smiles you see at the olympics. if that was indeed the case, it would be understandable. eastwood’s speech might be a strike against “trouble with

the curve” before the movie even gets up to bat. opening friday, the movie stars eastwood as the cantankerous gus Lobel, a baseball scout who may be in the last inning of his storied career as his eyesight goes out. eastwood last appeared onscreen in 2008 in “gran torino” as walt Kowalski, another man staring into the twilight with a scowl

and clenched fists. “get off my lawn,” Kowalski snarled, adding a surprise late-career entry to the eastwood catchphrase collection. “There are certain things people enjoy seeing clint do on the screen,” Lorenz said. “you can make the characters different, and they are different, but there is a quality to the character that people enjoy seeing up on the screen, of course, so you don’t want to run from that.” eastwood punctuated Lorenz’s thought: “They enjoy my unpleasantness.” he might be on to something with that. “gran torino,” directed by eastwood, had a production budget of $33 million and went on to gross $270 million worldwide. But the longtime box office hero isn’t motivated by commercial imperatives, and most people (himself included) expected it would be his last screen appearance con-

sidering the recent career emphasis and vigor he’s found in directing. with “curve,” he’s acted in five films since 2000, but in that same window he’s directed 11 feature films with several gaining serious critical accolades and major trophy attention. was Lorenz distressed later about the possible effects eastwood’s appearance at the rnc might have on his film? Lorenz hesitated, and eastwood filled the space. “he was thinking maybe we shouldn’t release this movie,” the actor deadpanned. The response came from the not-empty seat next to him on the couch. “i’ve learned from clint over the years that there really isn’t any such thing as bad publicity and he’s going to do what he does and go out there and be himself. clint people love clint, and that’s not changing. and so it’ll all be fine.”

rising tension in ‘end of watch’ makes you worry for characters By roger Moore MCT

t

he writer of “training day” and “harsh times” brings us more cop movie grit with “end of watch,” a vivid series of impressionistic sketches of a year in the lives of two Los angeles police officers. These aren’t the corrupt cops writer-director david ayer built his name on. They’re just patrolmen, in a family of officers — sometimes heroic, often cocky, occasionally miscalculating. and in telling their stories episodically with a rhythm that builds suspense slowly, ayer gets at the level of trust they have to have for one another and the meaning of that old cop movie cliche: “he took a bullet for me.” Brian taylor (Jake gyllenhaal) and Mike Zavala (Michael pena) may be young, but they’ve been partners so long they’re like an old married couple, comically bickering, teasing, picking at each other’s sore spots. Brian is the single one, the ambitious one. he wants to make detective. he’s willing to take a shortcut or two to get there. Mike is more blue collar: happily married, a father, happy to be where he is in the force. But the uniform hasn’t taken the chip off his shoulder. call him the wrong name when he’s arresting you and it’s “go time.” over the course of a year, we see the shifting fortunes of their lives, shootings that have to be justified by their department and a steadily escalating violence that spills over the border from Mexico, whose ruthless drug cartels deal in “dope, money and guns — all the major food groups.” Mike and Brian find themselves stumbling into more and more cartel business as their year passes them by. gyllenhaal brings a swash-

Mike has matured in different ways, clinging to juvenile neighborhood notions of “respect” but adult enough to know love when he sees it. ayer’s film begins with a long lull: 45 minutes of procedure, depiction of the cop community (america ferrara and cody horn are fellow officers) and light touches. The police are bilingual by necessity, aware of where they can make a difference and when they need to walk away. The calls they answer range from fires to missing children, loud parties to “shots fired — officer down.” The banter between our two heroes is easy, informal,

german offerings slim but delicious at mueller’s By roB young Special to The Post and Courier

J

ust about every day, alex Mueller offers up a seat at the stammtisch at his eponymously titled establishment, Mueller’s pub, situated near the piggly wiggly on skylark drive in west ashley. The stammtisch represents a traditional german table of honor for family, friends and regulars, which could mean about anyone to the affable and german-born Mueller. Though the bar once housed an actual circular stammtisch, it grew too large and cumbersome to bear. so instead, Mueller’s itself acts as a symbolic stammtisch, a welcoming place for all comers. formerly known as the ten seventeen pub under the same owner, it’s still colored by Mueller’s affections: soccer, the Michigan state spartans and germany. his family owned and operated a hotel-restaurantcafe in germany’s Black forest mountain range, and Mueller has adapted a few

Bratwurst from Mueller’s Pub.

if you go what: mueller’s pub where: 630 skylark drive, charleston hours: noon-2 a.m. monday-sunday for more info: 2256302 of his family recipes to fit america. The bar manages to offer a pair of german mainstays: slow-cooked, beer-soaked bratwurst with sauerkraut ($6) and wiener schnitzel, which is elongated, battered, compacted and served with Jaeger sauce ($5.99). alas, there’s really just those two. no currywurst. no noo-

dles or potatoes entries. no sour roast. But that’s likely because the audience for BLts and italian hoagies is greater than the demand for wiener schnitzel, which is why Mueller’s makes do with typical bar trappings: hot wings, bacon and cheddar fries, jalapeno poppers and mozzarella sticks. other items include fried chicken and chef salads, roast beef sandwiches and popular chicken salad sandwiches. sure, the majority may not be of german extract, but one can always grab a seat at the bar, a st. pauli girl or Beck’s beer, watch a bit of soccer and pretend otherwise.

gibbes gets rocking with iconic artists exhibit

o

pening friday, the gibbes Museum of art, 135 Meeting st., will have two special exhibitions. first up, “sound and Vision: Monumental rock and roll photography.” This exhibition will feature a collection of photographs of iconic rock ’n’ roll, blues and hip-hop musicians taken by famous contemporary photographers in the past five decades. “This exhibition presents 40 stunning large-scale prints of many of the most notable musicians, songwriters and performers of the last half of the 20th century,” said Marla Loftus, director of communications. “taken by 20 of the most accomplished photographers of the genre, these photographs in many ways define the way we look at the musical artists who created rock ’n’ roll. “starting with photographs of influential blues musicians and early innovators such as elvis presley, through the British invasion, protest music and the psychedelic ’60s, soul music, metal, glam rock, reggae, punk, grunge and ending with hip-hop recording artists such as tupac shakur and Jay-Z, ‘sound and Vision: Monumental rock and roll photography’ explores the dynamic connection between the power of music and photography.” These works will be in the Main gallery. in the rotunda gallery, there will be a collection of works by willard hirsch, who has been dubbed as “charleston’s premier sculptor of the 20th century.”

singer-songwriter music fest brings a bit of the west coast to the east coast

By harris cohen Special to The Post and Courier

i

n most parts of the country, when Labor day ushers in fall, the festival concert season ends. But the Lowcountry, with its beautiful weather that usually continues into october (november if we’re lucky), pushes the festival season to the limits. hotel carolina, the “ultimate singersongwriter music festival,” takes place tonight through saturday at The windjammer. in its fourth year, the event brings the audience up close and personal with the musicians. “our initial intention was to take the singer-songwriter theme and the intimacy of Los angeles’ hotel cafe and bring it east,” said Jason spiewak, president of rock ridge Music. Lucca emulating sister hazel’s annual hazelnut hang fanfest, there will be events during the day in which fans can interact and form bonds with the performers. performances include a lineup of shows outside during the afternoons and inside at night.

Mouseketeer with a ‘Voice’

headlining friday’s lineup will be tony Lucca, a name that may sound familiar. although he had an existing fan base, the former Mousketeer desired to break through the ceiling he felt his career had hit, so he auditioned for the television singing competition “The Voice.” coached by please see Hotel, page 21

Maroon 5’s adam Levine, Lucca made it to the finals, finishing third. “The experience showed me how and when to take calculated risks,” Lucca said. he added that Levine told him if what he was doing did not make him a little uncomfortable then it was not worth doing. to push him out of his safe place on the show, Lucca sang “Baby one More time” from fellow Mouseketeer Britney spears and a rousing rendition of Jay Z’s “99 problems,” sales of which propelled Lucca to the no. 3 spot on itunes overall singles sales chart and no. 1 on itunes rock singles chart. in addition to Lucca’s success with “99 problems,” his duet of “yesterday” by The Beatles with Levine landed in the top 5 on itunes overall and pop singles sales charts. Lucca stated that he is in the process of locking up a record deal and is accumulating songs. “i wrote seven songs in four days, which is historically very high for me. it was fun,” Lucca laughed. he said his upcoming album will be edgier but added, “Though it might be challenging for my current fans, i’m cognizant of not turning them off by completely jumping ship.”

A little bit country

headlining saturday’s program are ingram hill and Brendan James. ingram hill released its latest album last month. The eponymous-titled effort veers more toward the country genre than those prior. “we self-produced the songs, so i guess our tennessee roots just came out naturally. it’s as much us as anything we’ve done, and we didn’t want to make the same record as before,” said lead singer Justin Moore. still, being quite different than 2010’s critically acclaimed and more rockfocused “Look your Best,” the band is a little nervous about its acceptance from the existing fan-base. “it is a good apprehension. some may not like it, but we want everyone to give it a

chance,” Moore added. Moore said that the first single, a southern anthem titled “good ol’ dixie,” has received an enthusiastic response on the few dates the band has played this year. “Those Three words” highlights the band’s clever melodic hooks accompanied with straight-ahead and never-contrived lyrics, while a steel guitar adds a country texture.

In transition

Brendan James’ summer release, “hope in transition,” reflects his current professional and personal life status. Burned out by the major label trial of fighting for attention and funds, and the grind of constant touring, James and his decca label mutually terminated their contract. “it’s a little scary not having that security, but it’s also nice to escape the gears of the pop-music machinery,” James said. James gained worldwide exposure during the summer olympics when the u.s. women’s soccer team adopted “The Lucky ones” as its pre-match anthem. when told by player heather o’reilly, James, who was in the middle of his move from california to charleston, pulled over in amarillo, texas, and filmed a live version of the song with his ipad at a music store. “i was overwhelmed, super honored, flattered and surprised,” James exclaimed. he recently moved to charleston with his wife and has been focusing on family life. “These changes in my life and just settling down have opened the floodgates in my creativity,” James said. even with the recent album release, he said he’s already 90 percent finished writing his next effort. “i was touring so much, i felt i lost touch. This album will have songs that are accessible and catchy but on my own terms,” James said, adding, “i didn’t like being told to write a single.” he will perform one or two of the new songs this weekend but prefers they not end up prematurely on youtube.

Judas priest

Screaming for Vengeance Special 30th Anniversary Edition/Columbia/Legacy

A

in 1982, when the British heavy metal band Judas priest released its eighth studio album, “screaming for Vengeance,” it was one of the biggest acts in metal. Thirty years later, the music on that classic metal album still stands up. part of the reason lead singer rob halford’s voice screaming over the dual lead guitar onslaught of the band still causes the hair on the arms of metal fans to stand up is because Judas priest did things its way. The band could have taught a college class on how to look and sound like a metal band.

from the studded leather costumes and stacks of Marshall amplifiers to song titles such as “The hellion” and “you’ve got another Thing coming,” this was no halfbaked rock outfit. i could tell you to pick up the new 30th anniversary edition of “screaming for Vengeance” because the remastered album sounds incredible, or that the live bonus tracks are a treat to hear. The real reason for metal maniacs to grab this two-disc set is for the included dVd that features Judas priest’s afternoon set from the 1983 us festival in california.

rocking out in front of a crowd estimated at the time to be about 300,000, halford and the rest of the band crank through priest classics such as “Metal gods,” “Breaking the Law” and “Living after Midnight.” The concert is a truly sweet treat on top of getting to hear one of the most beloved albums in metal history shined up like a new penny.

Back in the mid-’90s here in charleston, it was virtually impossible to not know about Ben folds five if you were a rock fan. The chapel hill, n.c., trio (yes, there were, and still are, only three members of the band) played charleston frequently at the Music farm and even one year at wavefest, the annual all-day rock concert thrown by the now-defunct radio station 96 wave. consisting of Ben folds on piano and vocals, robert sledge on bass and darren Jessee on drums, the band released three studio albums of well-received music before calling it quits in 2000. happily, the band is back together; they played at the north charleston perform-

ing arts center on wednesday. The new studio album, “The sound of the Life of the Mind,” owes more to the band’s last release, 1999‘s “The unauthorized Biography of reinhold Messner,” than the band’s earlier material. Many of the songs are more serious and introspective than anything on “forever and ever amen,” but there are points where folds’ twisted sense of humor shines through. This is especially evident on tracks such as “Michael praytor, five years Later” and “draw a crowd.” The latter selection features what might be one of the funniest folds lyrics ever: “i only wanted to be stevie wonder/i got to settle for this

Vanilla Thunder.” also good is the title track, co-written by author nick hornby (with whom folds collaborated on a music project a few years back), as well as “hold That Thought,” which deserves radio airplay. overall, “The sound of the Life of the Mind” is an uneven recording, but the truth is that even at only 50 percent power, Ben folds five still runs circles around many of today’s younger bands when it comes to songwriting skills.

key moment: halford riding his motorcycle on stage to perform the encore of “hell bent for leather” on the dvd footage of the concert.

The Other Side of the Horizon/ Independent

B+

as proof that you’re never too old to follow your dream, may i present Bob tobin. at the ripe old age of 71, tobin has released a new collection of songs. although you may have seen tobin playing around town at various venues, for the most part, his singing and songwriting have been more of a hobby than anything else. now that he’s retired from his day job, tobin has taken the next step, recording 14 of his original tunes with Bruce roberts at the local arp studios.

Listening to the material on “The other side of the horizon,” one has to marvel at the fact that tobin waited this long to record his material. tobin has a great songwriting style, similar to those of Jimmy Buffett and the late hoyt axton. tobin’s singing voice might remind you a bit of axton, with a little Burl ives thrown in. from the catchy “Listen to Momma” and the Buffett-inspired title track,to later notable tracks such as “distance” and “Lillie La rue,” there’s actually a lot to like here if

you’re a fan of mellow blues and light rock. i’m not sure what tobin did for a living prior to retirement, but it is readily evident from the quality of the songwriting here that he’s doing the right thing by following his dream. key tracks: “listen to momma,” “the other side of the horizon,” “distance” — by devin grant

the wallflowers

when the sleepy-eyed pop-rock band The wallflowers crept into mainstream consciousness in 1996 with the hits “one headlight” and “6th avenue heartache,” few might have guessed that the band was actually approaching its seven-year anniversary. when it was learned that front man Jakob dylan was the son of music icon Bob dylan, many wondered why there had been such a delay in bringing The wallflowers to major radio play, while others doubted the band’s validity altogether. The truth was that the junior dylan hid his lineage in an effort to blaze his own trail in the business. Like most bands, The wallflowers played in bars, small clubs and restaurants, scrounging to build a following in the highly competitive Los angeles music scene. The band was even dropped by its first label, Virgin records, after its 1992 selftitle debut sold less than 40,000 copies after its initial push.

ben sollee

Ben sollee has spent the past six years building a reputation as an inventive cellist, composer and songwriter teeming with inspired creations that explore the categorical limits of jazz, classical, folk and rock genres. a pupil of r&B music from an early age, sollee drifted to the study of classical music after taking up the cello in elementary school, a transition that gave soul and rasp to sollee’s classical reproductions. By the time he was 22, sollee joined with Bela fleck, abigail washington and casey driessen to form the group The sparrow Quartet. sollee’s work with the group made its way to Jim James, front man for My Morning Jacket, who would go on to produce sollee’s full-length sophomore album, “dear companion.” sollee has made news for his frequent touring by bicycle. in 2009, the musician biked 330 miles with his equipment to perform at Bonnaroo. The trek was made to raise awareness of coal mining by way of mountaintop removal taking place around the appalachian Mountains. Ben sollee will celebrate the release of his newest album, “half-Made Man,” out tuesday, with a wednesday performance at The pour house, 1977 Maybank highway. Luke reynolds will open the night. tickets are $12 in advance, $15 the day of the show and are available at the door or online at etix.com. go to charlestonpourhouse.com or call 571-4343.

ace’s on bridge

Reaching six no-trump from the North seat would be too hard for most of us. After you (South) open two clubs and rebid two no-trump to show a good 2224 points, you have failed the “test.” Incidentally, North might have explored for a minor-suit fit, the easiest way being to jump to five no-trump to offer a choice of slams. Of course, West leads a heart. Resignedly,youcallfordummy’s heart queen, not in the least surprised when this loses to East’s king. How will you play the contract when East returns a second round of hearts, removing your safe entry to dummy at an inconvenient moment? Five diamond tricks and four club tricks will bring the total

to 12. You will need to find East with the club king, of course, but you must also solve the blockage problem in diamonds. The best line is to lead the club queen from dummy. If East follows with a low club, you must unblock the club 10 from your hand. When the finesse wins, as you must hope, you continue with a low club to your jack. If East began with a doubleton or tripleton club king, you will be able to pick up the clubs. Then youcanunblockthethreetopdiamondhonorsandfinallyreturnto dummy by overtaking the club five with dummy’s six. Dummy’s two remaining diamonds, plus the top spades in your hand, will allow you to claim the slam.

ear aBBy: i have to respond to your reply to “tammi’s Mom in n.J.,” whose daughter won’t answer her texts at college. our daughter, “Jill,” attended college 12 hours from home. she would text me almost every day: short, sweet messages always ending with “Luv u, XoXo.” i looked forward to those texts because they were a lifeline to my daughter. tammi’s Mom is coping with empty-nest syndrome, which no child can understand until she experiences it herself one day. Thankfully, Jill knew how much her texts meant to me. They got me through four long years without her. i hope tammi sees this and appreciates that she has a mom who isn’t smothering her, but who loves and cares about her. — reMeMBering in Johnstown, pa. DEAR REMEMBERING: Thank you for sharing. I stressed to Tammi’s Mom that her daughter is growing up and trying to establish independence. However, readers were quick to point out that Tammi still owes her mother the courtesy of keeping in touch: dear aBBy: when i was away at college, many students expected their parents to pay their tuition and living expenses but stay out of their lives. tammi’s Mom said she’d be happy with a call or text every two or three days. i don’t think that is unreasonable. i have lived several hundred miles away from my family for 10 years now. i enjoy a great deal of independence, but i know it worries my parents to have me so far away. i call them every day or two. These quick phone calls (usually only five minutes) help them see that i’m safe and happy, and also allow me to remain emotionally close to my family even though i’m not geographically close. abby, asking for a quick text, which takes only a few

dear abby moments, is not “helicopter parenting.” — independent girL in ariZona dear aBBy: to tammi’s Mom, i say, it’s time to get a life! do things now that you’ve always wanted to do. if you’re married, find things in common again. sometimes when we raise our kids, we can become consumed with their wants and needs, and our marriages suffer. take up a new hobby and let your baby bird spread her wings. she’ll thank you for it and will want to call you when you stop calling or texting every day. if you get yourself busy, you’ll spend less time sitting by the phone. — Knows froM eXperience dear aBBy: until recently, i had two children in college, one close to home, the other several hours away. unfortunately, there is so much violence everywhere today and kids are vulnerable to it, especially around many colleges and universities. Kids send hundreds of text messages a day to their friends. i don’t think it’s too much to ask for an occasional text from your child to make sure he or she is indeed safe. — BiLL in BLooMsBury, n.J. dear aBBy: while i was away at college, my dad was like tammi’s Mom, and it drove me nuts. so we compromised. every sunday morning at 9, dad and i would talk on the phone. That way he could catch up on my week and know i was oK. Mom needs to give her daughter space. — coLLege grad in iLLinois write dear abby at or p.o. box 69440, los angeles, ca 90069.
