charleston 2nd ‘destination marathon’


here’s a tourism niche among the world’s growing population of endurance athletes known as the “destination marathon.” it’s basically runners, a demographic known for higherthan-average income levels, traveling to cities or places that tend to be popular vacation spots to run a marathon and have a mini-vacation, at least for a long weekend. hotels, restaurants and others who depend on tourism tend to like destination marfile/brad nettles/staff athons because the events are usually scheduled during Spectators watch as runners participating in the Charleston Marathon and Half Marathon head down King Street. cooler “off-season” months.

Join the party

among the better-known destination marathons in the u.s. are big sur in california, honolulu, new york and Mayor’s Midnight, held in alaska during the summer solstice. charleston’s primary destination marathon for three decades continues to be the kiawah island Marathon in december. like many, it features a half-marathon. unlike many, it restricts its numbers. on saturday, the charleston Marathon will emerge as the area’s second destination marathon, strategically held on the three-day Martin luther king Jr. holiday weekend.

previously complained didn’t feature much of charleston or the lowcountry landscape. The new route change adds only two more miles in charleston, for a total of eight in the downtown area. it includes the gorgeous vistas of the ashley river and charleston harbor along lockwood boulevard and The battery and all of king street. “i don’t know how much more we can get inside the city of charleston,” said howie schomer, one of the event’s co-founders and the point man on route design. “we’ve mapped this course hundreds of times over the years, and i don’t know how many variations we’ve had, but i think this one is really interesting.” Marathoners and halfmarathoners split from each other just before the Mile 10 mark on Viaduct road in north charleston. runners in the half then proceed toward north charleston highway while the marathoners head to the cooper river Marina and a short jaunt on a pier between miles 12 and 13.

“everyone i’ve talked to thinks it great,” cloud said. “anything we can do to drum up business after the holidays and before spring i’m all for.”

Hitting its stride

alford said all the tweaking appears to be paying off. registration for the event has climbed a substantial 20 percent this year. as of late last week, the half had 2,375 registrants, the marathon 1,030, the 5k 575 and the bike ride about 200. alford said about half of the registrants are coming from outside the charleston area. “it has totally become a destination marathon,” said alford, noting that conde nast magazine’s ranking of charleston as the no. 1 destination in the world didn’t hurt.

Road closures

alford said the marathon and half will feature a “rolling closure”; streets closed for the race will reopen as the last runners pass. and runners must keep a 15-minute per mile, or 4 mph, pace going. “we’ll be out of downtown charleston by 10 a.m.,” she said. “streets in north charleston will be reopened by 2 p.m.” For specifics on the route and closures, go to charleston reach david Quick at 937-5516.

10 movies that can’t miss in 2013 Highlights of this year’s film lineup

by barry koltnow The Orange County Register


stopped believing in “sure things” when i was 16. That summer, i worked the night shift at a Jersey shore restaurant as a busboy. each afternoon, i transformed into a degenerate teenage gambler. i didn’t lose a lot of money because i didn’t have a lot of money, but i played the ponies regularly and sat in a reserved box when i went to the track. one night, a professional gambler who was a restaurant regular gave my boss a tip on a horse that couldn’t lose. rumor had it that the trainer of the horse had been holding him back in an attempt to jack up the odds. Finally, it was time to collect. The horse was going off at 16-1, and he was so lightly regarded from his previous races that he had been dropped in class so that he was competing against inferior animals. i ran all over town trying to raise money for the bet, and eventually amassed a fortune. i think it was around $60. The next day, i went to the track and placed the bet. as the race was about to begin, i started to fantasize about how i would spend my winnings. when the bell rang, my horse accidentally bumped the starting gate and got turned around. he stood there dazed and confused, and by the time he realized which way he was supposed to run, the rest of the field was halfway to the finish line. My horse lost by a nose, proving that the tip wasn’t bad, but there are no sure things. it also proved that crime doesn’t pay, and there are no shortcuts in life. it was a lapse in judgment to go along with a “fix,” but i was a stupid teenager. i have tried to live an honest life in the ensuing years, but i still feel strongly that there are no sure things.

Mark Wahlberg stars as private investigator Billy Taggart, who risks everything as he tries to uncover big city corruption, in “Broken City.”

hughes goes solo for ‘broken city’ by chris lee Los Angeles Times


or the past two decades, allen hughes’ primary renown has been based on joint credit. he and his identical twin, albert, are known around hollywood as the hughes brothers, the hydra-headed filmmaking duo responsible for such breakthroughs as the blistering 1993 gangsta drama “Menace ii society” and the denzel washington-starring post-apocalyptic thriller “The book of eli” in 2010. ask allen hughes what compelled him to dissolve the enduring creative partnership to strike out on his own this year, however, and the director is likely to start talking about The beatles. “it’s like a rock group,” hughes said. “paul Mccartney and John lennon. They got into different zones, and it became a challenge for them to get in the same zone creatively. as you get older, you become your own man. you want to show people what you’re capable of. espe-

cially when you’re a twin.” after co-directing five films with albert, allen hughes’ first solo outing is the gritty political potboiler “broken city,” which reaches theaters Friday. The $35 million film follows disgraced ex-copturned-private eye billy taggart (Mark wahlberg), who gets dragged into a web of double-dealing, backstabbing and intrigue when new york Mayor nicholas hostetler (russell crowe) enlists him to investigate his wife’s suspected infidelities. it’s a movie for grown-ups that pays implicit homage to the neo-noir of such ’70s suspense masters as sidney lumet and roman polanski: a throwback cocktail of greed, big-city horse trading, murder and institutional corruption. and it’s certainly a far cry from the gats-and-gangs ’hood drama that put the hughes brothers on the map 20 years ago. “if it was alcohol, ‘Menace ii society’ would be Jack daniel’s,” hughes explained. “i feel like ‘broken city’ is

nice wine. it’s mature and opened up and complex. substance is what i was focused on mainly.” after discovering screenwriter brian tucker’s script on the 2008 black list, which showcases hollywood’s hottest unproduced screenplays, hughes earmarked the role of taggart for wahlberg and reached out to the star in 2010, several months before wahlberg was to land some of the best reviews of his career for his turn in the boxing drama “The Fighter.” The actor quickly signed on as both the lead and producer of “broken city.” “The character is funny, edgy, tragic. he’s flawed, he’s the underdog,” said hughes. “he’s endearing. he’s everything that Mark is.” Thanks to the strict physical regimen he implemented to portray Jor-el, superman’s father, in director Zack snyder’s upcoming “Man of steel,” russell crowe appears slimmed down and buffed up in “broken city.” he emanates a kind of purring teflon malevolence as prime

manipulator of new york’s corridors of power. “challenging, not difficult,” is how hughes describes the notoriously mercurial crowe’s on-set mien. The director is quick to point out that he and albert are closer to one another at age 40 than at any other time in their lives. and hughes put in perspective what distinguished their yin-yang partnership from that of filmdom’s other successful sibling collaborations. “whether it’s tony and ridley scott, the wachowskis, the coen brothers, there’s a hierarchy. it’s usually the older one who is alpha,” he said. “as twins, albert and me didn’t have that. everything had to be totally equal. but you get to the point where you go, ‘everything’s equal. but, well, who ... am i?’ ” “i think this movie respects what my brother and i have built,” hughes continued. “and at the same time, it sends the signal that i’m going in this direction now.”

‘ahnuld’ is back

schwarzenegger has starring role in ‘the last stand’ by John anderson Newsday


here has been an enormous sense of finality to the films of arnold schwarzenegger, at least if you judge by the titles: “The last action hero.” “end of days.” “The long goodbye.” “The terminator,” of course. but after all the mayhem, muscles and mangled dialogue, one should never forget the most famous ahnuldism of all: “i’ll be back.” and so he is. This Friday, the onetime Mr. universe, governor of california and recent target of the tabloids opens in a new feature, “The last stand,” which promises no more sense of conclusion to schwarzenegger’s acting career than any other movie he’s done since 1969 and “hercules in new york” (in which he appeared as “arnold strong”). in fact, the austrian oak, as he has been known, has about six films in the pipeline, including a rumored “terminator 5” and another one with a funereal title, “The tomb.” “The last stand,” directed by the south korean Jeewoon kim, and shot in a manner that implies far more action than it actually captures, finds schwarzenegger in a familiar role: gun-toting avenger and champion of goodness. his character, the germanically accented ray owens, is the sheriff of sleepy sommerton Junction, a town where almost everyone has left for the weekend and through which a ruthless south american drug lord/ Fbi fugitive is planning to make a dash for the Mexican border (racing a customized corvette c6 Zr1 in one of the more prolonged cases of product placement in movie history). alienated at first by the dismissive agent in charge of the

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as Ray Owens in “The Last Stand.” case (Forest whitaker), ray decides to take on gabriel cortez (eduardo noriega), even though he’s surrounded by a misfit crowd of imbecile sidekicks that includes the aptly named lewis dinkum (Johnny knoxville), a local moron with a huge at-home arsenal. “The last stand,” schwarzenegger’s first starring role since “terminator: rise of the Machines” in 2003 (the year he was elected governor), isn’t likely to supplant any of the actor’s better-known films, which include “total recall,” “true lies” and “The running Man.” but it does provide an excuse to look back at one of the more remarkable careers in the history of the movies. schwarzenegger was, after all, a heavily accented austrian immigrant, a star in a sport usually subject to public derision (body building) and a physical specimen unsuited to most lead roles, and unknown to leading men. despite a star quality (and ruthlessness) evident in the documentary “pumping iron,” no one knew what

to do with schwarzenegger, until “conan the barbarian.” after that, he didn’t so much adapt to hollywood as bend it to his will. “conan,” after all, was camp: part of the joke was that there was an actual human being who so closely resembled the Frank Frazetta illustrations that graced robert e. howard’s tales of the hyborian age. That schwarzenegger wasn’t an actor didn’t matter; the whole thing was a good-natured joke (including conan’s declaration about what is best in life: “to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and hear the lamentations of the women”). and yet, little by little, one stallone at a time, the nature of the action movie hero changed from being tall, dark, handsome and serious to being sometimes short, and definitely droll: The schwarzenegger-style punch lines to what would otherwise have been dark scenes became de rigueur in action films (“considah dat a divorce,” he tells “wife” sharon

stone in “total recall,” after shooting her in the head; “let off some steam, bennett,” he tells Vernon wells in “commando” after pinning him to a boiler with a 10-foot pipe). The groaners, mixed with schwarzenegger’s inflectionfree delivery, changed action movies forever. all the tropes are revisited in “The last stand,” although the action star isn’t quite up to the action; kim does what he can to make schwarzenegger appear limber, but he seems barely able to cross the street. There are long, schwarzenegger-free stretches of story line involving that corvette, the runaway drug lord, the pursuit by the Fbi and a protracted car chase through a cornfield that could well involve anybody, not necessarily the kid who came out of Thal, austria, to become one of the biggest movie stars in the world. but don’t count him out. or gone. it may well be time to say, “hasta la vista, baby,” but the governator’s going nowhere.

The exterior of the bbsob (for those inclined to use acronyms) isn’t toughened or crusted like many stuffed burgers, which often need extra time to cook. rather, it’s soft and gooey, the blue cheese spread on top, the bacon fit between the patties. it’s a brilliant mash up, delightfully plump and inviting, the sesame seed bun seemingly floating on top.

The super short version is that the restaurant and bar has raised, lowered and raised again a pow-Mia flag and an american flag, which led to a “cooled” relationship with its landlord, The beach co. now, the rent is increasing, and the tavern might be looking for a new spot in a few months. That’s too bad because, regardless of the flag flap, these guys may just deserve a permanent spot on Market street thanks to their stuffed burgers ($8.95-$14.95). They bear homespun names like the carolina swamp Fox, the Fort Moult-

The restaurant boasts some serious sandwich options, too, including its oversized chucktown club ($9.95), primed with bacon, lettuce, ham and turkey. More choices include cheese steak sandwiches, chicken and fish filets, and pulled pork sandwiches. at any rate, here’s hoping chucktown settles its rent and space issues soon, and those offerings won’t just be Chucktown Tavern’s Blue Bacon South of Broad burger. for a limited time only.

ms. rose’s fine food a lowcountry original

modern restaurant pays homage to mother with her comfort food recipes by deidre schipani Special to The Post and Courier

yes, there truly is a “rose” and she is none other than rose Mibab goldberg, the mother of intertech group’s ceo and chairwoman anita Zucker. The restaurant that bears her name also serves her recipes, some adjusted for a commercial kitchen, others pure and simple like rose’s chicken soup ($6) or cornbread with cinnamon and buttermilk ($4). This strikingly modern restaurant that opened in october is built on the site of the former sunfire grill.

The space

gibson guess architects wrapped the structure in the modern darling of commercial and residential architects: wood slats. They have managed to both open and enclose the space where repetition, scale and light are filtered by the slanted presence of wood. The interior is brightly accented by primary-color glass globe lights, drum shades and the constant streaming of videos and slideshows. The bar area includes high tops and sheltered booths fabricated from the same slat-wood pattern of the exterior. two dining rooms provide private event space as well as seating removed from the bar and live music areas. do venture into the sculpture wall room, where college of charleston professor Jarod charzewski has created an 8-by-25-foot art installation called “sunfire remains,” using the former restaurant’s plates, cups, oyster knives, forks, cocktail strainers, glasses and cookware. The pieces record the life at sunfire, and, as the artist says, “They are resting in positions not unlike where they would be if tossed into a landfill.”

The carolina ribs (half, $15, full $20) were on the dry side. a flavorful rub crisped up on their surface, but the meat lacked moisture. The fried chicken sandwich was skillfully fried and when cradled by the biscuit rose to a 3-inch height crowned with pickles and basil leaves. The beef-fat fries ($5) were not exceptional. save your calories for dessert.

The service

servers are well-schooled about the menu and its preparations as well as the local purveyors and farms. The relish restaurant group has invested in the training of the staff, and it shows with enthusiasm, knowledge and friendliness. The chalkboard tabletops will entertain the child or artist in all of us, and the streaming videos will keep you guessing at content and location. co-owners david bucks and Mark hendey are vested to create a community-driven place, hosting meetings and supporting a diverse assortment of charities, sporting teams and philanthropic events. it comes as no surprise. it is the Zucker way, and the restaurant named for rose understands that.

see watchers and watched in ‘eternal vigilantes’


rtist karole turner campbell was deeply inspired by a quote from Frederick douglass. when douglas was asked how to maintain freedom, his response was “through eternal vigilance.” This moved turner to create an exhibit about those who are eternally vigilant: both the watchers and the watched. “The title of this show focuses on the vigilant, because they have watched or have been watched as horrific and benign events propelled them into taking a stand for freedom and against oppression, and the struggle continues,” campbell said. one of the pieces in the show is called “Martyrhood” and is dedicated to “all the mothers that have watched their children die as a result of ignorant violence.” in addition to these threedimensional paintings of visages, there will be the installation “suffer the little children,” inspired by the shooting at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut. There will be an opening reception for “eternal Vigilantes” from 6-8 today at the avery institute, 125 bull st.

and the macro photography of david batchelder. This interesting combination of zooming in and out gives us a combination of images that are familiar as well as otherworldly. “offering unique and engaging vantage points, assad and batchelder are able to capture the flow, light and texture of the shore in each photograph,” said a city gallery representative.

West of Memphis: Voices for Justice sountrack/ Legacy


if you aren’t familiar with the case of the west Memphis Three, then google it. reading the entire, tragic story of this miscarriage of justice will be much more effective than me trying to explain it in a few sentences. Throughout the legal battle waged by the west Memphis Three, numerous celebrities and musicians threw their support behind the unjustly charged young men.

when you think of musical hotbeds, you probably think of new york, los angeles, nashville, tenn., or even smaller, more concentrated towns such as athens, ga., or seattle. hoboken, n.J., definitely isn’t one of the towns that springs to mind when one talks about music. sure, hoboken is the town that gave the world Frank sinatra, but these days it’s known as the home of indie darlings

12-12-12: The Concert for Sandy Relief/Columbia


benefit albums are nothing new. going back to the ’70s when concerts for no nukes and famine relief in bangladesh spawned popular albums, it seems that musicians have always been more than happy to lend their time and talent to help out those in need. when hurricane sandy ravaged the northeast last year, it affected those that were seemingly the most unflappable folks in america: the citizens of new york and new Jersey. when it came time to raise money

oscar-winning director peter Jackson produced a documentary, and the film’s soundtrack features an amazing array of artists performing a collection of covers and originals. nick cave and warren ellis composed the score for the film, and their music plays here under the readings of two letters written from death row by west Memphis Three member damien echols. elsewhere we get covers of pink Floyd’s “Mother” by dixie chick natalie Maines, david bowie’s “The Jean genie” by supergroup camp Freddy and carly simon’s

For nearly 30 years, yo la tengo has been quietly releasing its own brand of lo-fi rock music, amassing a large and loyal following in the process, despite nearly zero radio airplay. on yo la tengo’s latest effort, “Fade,” the band continues to make the lowkey kind of music that has made critics and listeners alike fall in love with it. “Fade” has a much more personal feeling than the last few albums by the band. songs such as “ohm,” “is That

for disaster relief from sandy, a megaconcert was planned for dec. 12 at Madison square garden. The resulting show represented what might be the most incredible lineup of musicians in recent memory. “12-12-12: The concert for sandy relief” features not just contemporary musicians such as alicia keys, chris Martin and eddie Vedder, but also rock legends such as The who, bruce springsteen, roger waters, The rolling stones, eric clapton, billy Joel and paul Mccartney.

brave baby

with an increasing amount of empty space in the local music scene — crowfield announced its final show last week, set for March — charleston’s anticipation for new hometown talent may be quenched by the freshman release of newly formed indie quartet brave baby. The group pulled together in 2010 out of the remnants of the members’ former projects and began quietly writing and rehearsing while one of its founding members, ryan patrick Zimmerman, began making a name for himself as a producer, working with area artists such as steven Fiore, elim bolt, sequoyah prep school, will hastings and others. The band’s sound stacks its smarts and heart next to gutsy instincts, staggering with purpose, somewhere between bon iver and brand new: emotional and intricate but gradually, methodically explosive, fierce and mellifluous. brave baby will celebrate the release of its debut album, “Forty bells,” today at The pour house, 1977 Maybank highway. elim bolt and octopus Jones also will perform. tickets are $10 and include a copy of the new album. tickets may be purchased online at or at the door. doors open at 8 p.m. go to charlestonpour or call 571-4343 for more information.

N. Charleston Pops! the area’s newest orchestra plays for the people by stratton lawrence Special to The Post and Courier


acy edwards dreamed of forming a symphony in north charleston for years, but it took her casually floating the concept to Mayor keith summey to make it a reality, and in just five minutes. “we had a press conference last spring about north charleston’s 40th anniversary celebration, and i mentioned that idea,” edwards recalls. “The mayor turns around and announces that we have a north charleston pops! orchestra.” to summey’s credit, a de facto north charleston pops! has been unofficially coming together for years. whenever a traveling broadway musical came through town (most recently “wicked” and “Mary poppins”), the performing arts center called upon edwards to assemble musicians to perform the score. The city’s 40th anniversary last year was highlighted by an earth, wind & Fire concert, requiring a sizeable local ensemble. with edwards already pulling together her musical connections for that performance, the timing was perfect for the formation of an official orchestra. unlike a traditional symphony, a “pops” orchestra is free of traditional restraints regarding material. whereas a standard city ensemble might hesitate to incorporate renditions of popular rock songs, it’s common practice for a pops orchestra. in that way, north charleston pops! is designed to complement the charleston symphony orchestra, offering listeners the opportunity to enjoy both traditional classical compositions and pop culture works without leaving the lowcountry.

Spreading its wings

after the momentum created by summey’s unexpected announcement, edwards quickly got to work. Jeffrey reed, a colleague from her work as the principle flutist with orchestra kentucky (in bowling green), was brought on as the musical director. together, in less than a month, they decided upon an inaugural season of concerts. The north charleston pops! officially


Jeffrey Reed, the musical director, conducts the orchestra.

if you go what: north charleston pops! “music of stage and screen” when: 7:30 p.m. saturday where: north charleston performing arts center, 5001 coliseum drive price: $15-$35; active and retired military can save $5 by showing military id at the coliseum advance ticket window for more info: www.north debuted on nov. 10, drawing more than 1,000 attendees for a “tribute to our Veterans” show of classic patriotic music. They followed that with “lowcoun-

try christmas” on dec. 8. For their final two shows of the season, however, the group gets to spread its wings and delve into broad material, beginning with “Music of stage and screen” on saturday. “My philosophy about programming is probably different than other conductors,” explains reed. “i really think that in these times, people have such eclectic tastes. They don’t just listen to one radio station, and music collections have a lot of variety. orchestras need to learn from that and emulate it if they’re going to grow and survive.” to that end, the “stage and screen” show will feature plenty of familiar scores and songs, including several by esteemed composer John williams. Fans of films such as “star wars,” “e.t.,” “raiders of the lost ark” and “super-

man” will get the rare chance to experience a 55-piece orchestra playing the themes live. “i’ve seen an interview of orchestral musicians, people who actually make a living playing in orchestras, where they were asked, ‘what made you interested in orchestral music?’ ” recalls reed. “a lot of people said ‘star wars.’ it really did change our society in a lot of ways, and John williams has done more for the development of orchestras than anybody else in the last 50 years.” rounding out the show are classic pieces from stage shows, including “Fiddler on the roof” and “west side story,” as well as classic and modern films including “pirates of the caribbean” and “breakfast at tiffany’s.” please see pops, page e21

thursday, January 17, 2013: E21

pops from page e20 Throughout the show, scenes from the various films will be aired via projection behind the orchestra, effectively introducing the piece and setting the mood. “we live in a very visual society,” said reed, explaining the decision to incorporate film clips into an orchestral performance. “years ago, people weren’t so visual; they were more aural, and were able to sit for long periods of time. nowadays, i think having a visual element is very important.” The concert also will incorporate special guest vocalists tim and sara king, a fatherdaughter team who will handle vocals during certain selections, including andrew lloyd webber’s “unexpected song” (from the musical “song and dance”) and a medley from “les Miserables.” “i chose tim and sara because of their real ability to connect with an audience,” attests reed. “They both have amazing voices and great stage presence, and it’s unique to have a father and daughter like this. plus, they’re both high-quality singers and high-quality people, and i think that comes across in their performances.”

Accessible arts

relatively speaking, 2012 was not the best time in history to found an orchestra. across the nation, orchestras are struggling to survive, with renowned ensembles such as the philadelphia orchestra declaring bankruptcy just last year, and the charleston symphony orchestra weathering financial troubles of its own. “whether we like it or not, we live in an age where orchestras are not as popular with the vast majority of people as they once were,” acknowledges reed. “to survive, we need to start responding to changes in society. That’s not to say we ‘dumb down’ concerts, but we do need to be more accessible to the public.” reed makes a point to straddle the contemporary and traditional worlds, maintaining respect in each. he recently conducted a concert with legendary singer neil sedaka at the royal albert hall in london, just after performing stravinsky’s “The rite of spring” in kentucky.

Father-daughter duo Tim and Sara King will be special guest vocalists. “i do anything and everything,” reed said. “The point is to make people happy. if you bore them, that’s not a good way to make friends. conductors, i think, have a duty to try to help raise the level of musical appreciation in their community, but i think sometimes we go overboard. i think you need to give people something in every concert that they can identify with. it’s entertainment, as well as enrichment.” For the north charleston pops! to sustain itself into future seasons, reed stresses the importance of community support, in ticket purchases, donors, corporate sponsors and seasonal subscribers. both reed and edwards are quick to point out that the musicians who comprise north charleston pops! are not hobbyists, but paid professionals. several members also perform with the pair in kentucky, making the commute to north charleston for each of the season’s four shows. The orchestra composition is “95 percent local,” many of whom perform with various ensembles around charleston, including principle

trumpet cameron handel, who also tours internationally with singer Michael bolton. “being a musician myself, i know a lot of the freelance players in town,” edwards said. “we have so much talent here, and Jeffrey really brings out the best in the musicians. he lets them flourish, and people love playing with him, so it’s a happy situation on the job site where we’re all having fun making music together.” edwards is careful to hire musicians with great attitudes and “lots of happy energy,” underlying the notion that pops music is about enjoying yourself and not being too rigid in the approach. That’s a sentiment evident in the final pops! concert of the year, a tribute to The beatles set for March 23. and there’s already talk of a Motown show for the 2013-14 season. with original rock ’n’ roll fans now creeping into their 70s (paul Mccartney himself turned 70 last year), the overlap between orchestral and rock music is greater than ever. “our vision is to have a broader audi-

That is not our purpose though. our purpose is to have fun and entertain and play music that people have grown up to, music that’s part of a fabric of our being.” at the “tribute to our Veterans” debut show, audience members stood and clapped and swayed along to the songs. “They’re connecting with the music,” edwards said. “That doesn’t happen at most orchestras.” conductor reed explains the pops! motivation in simple terms. “nobody wants to go to a concert to hear something they don’t know,” he says. “whether it’s a rock concert or an orchestra, it’s about entertainment.”

ace’s on bridge


If you just looked at the NorthSouth cards in four hearts, you would expect 10 tricks to be a cakewalk, especially as East’s opening bid suggests the diamond ace rates to be onside. However, the fly in the ointment was the opening lead of the diamond three. Imagine that as declarer you were faced with that situation. You would let East win the diamond ace, cover the return of the diamond queen, and West would ruff and exit with a spade. With two diamond losers to get rid of, you would ruff a club, go back to the heart nine to ruff another club, and try to put some pressure on the opponents — but nothing would materialize. Instead, declarer must duck the

second trick. No harm will come to South in the unlikely event that diamonds were originally 3-2; he will simply have invested an overtrick as insurance. But if the cards lie as in the diagram, at trick three East will lead a third diamond, covered and ruffed. When West exits with a spade, you win in dummy and ruff a club. Then you play a heart to the nine, ruff a second club, and run the hearts, pitching dummy’s diamond, followed by low clubs. First you squeeze West out of a spade (as he has to guard clubs), then, when you throw dummy’s club queen, East must pitch spades to keep the diamond guard. So trick 13 will be won with dummy’s spade seven.

ear abby: My grandmother is 75 and very unpleasant to be around. she has made many hurtful remarks in the past, which have led some family members to shut her out of their lives. i live in another state and don’t see my grandmother very often. i call her once or twice a month. when i do, she’s nothing but pleasant with me, but she’s often angry and tearful about other members of the family. she feels her children and grandchildren should respect her as the matriarch of the family and include her in all family get-togethers. (My family tells me they have stopped inviting her to many functions because she’s such a troublemaker.) i’m concerned about my grandmother and am beginning to think that my parents and siblings should overlook her unpleasant behavior and occasional snide remarks. at the very least, they should include her in important family functions. i’d be interested in your opinion so i can share it with my family. — troubled in Minnesota DEAR TROUBLED: Your grandmother appears to be reaping what she has sown. Verbal abuse often leaves scars on those at whom it is aimed, and no one can be blamed for wanting distance from a person who is deliberately hurtful. Respect is something that has to be earned. Your parents and siblings “respect” your grandmother from a distance because they have learned it’s the only safe way to do so. Does this mean she should automatically be excluded from all family get-togethers? No. However, before she’s invited to an important event, she should give assurances that she’ll watch her mouth and be on her best behavior. Or else. If this seems heavyhanded, so be it. It’s no crime to protect oneself

dear abby from someone else’s meanspiritedness. dear abby: please allow me to share a dating technique with your readers that has saved me a lot of relationship headaches. i call it “the 90-day rule.” whenever i start dating someone, i try to see them at least once a week for 90 days. That way, if there are any character flaws, i find out within the first 90 days. among the flaws i’ve discovered: drug dealing and addiction, alcoholism, driving without a valid license and with illegal license tags, and lying about their occupation. The idea is to avoid sexual intimacy during those first 90 days to keep your head clear. if you are intimate too soon, you’ll find yourself making excuses for your partner. This technique has never failed me unless i made an exception. May i suggest your readers try this 90-day rule? if they do, i promise they won’t be disappointed because it takes time to get to know someone. before you can love someone, you must learn who that person really is. — clearheaded in clearwater, Fla. DEAR CLEARHEADED: Your 90-day rule makes a lot of sense. I have heard from many readers who went too far too fast because they felt they had made an instant emotional connection. I warn them that physical attraction should not be confused with love because what they’re really describing is infatuation. write dear abby at www. or p.o. box 69440, los angeles, ca 90069.
