It’s hard to see the victims as particularly deserving of their fate. And that lack of a sense of “righteous kills” creates an unease that strips “Killer Elite” of some of its cool. The actors cast as both Danny and Spike’s “teams” are unfamiliar, generic. More effort had to be made to give us a reason to root for or against them, and not against the rich sheik who set this whole killing spree off. But it’s still a decent yarn, decently told, a tough-guy film built around veteran screen tough guys. Best of all, the filmmakers took the time to give these hard men just the right things to say — not catchphrases, just lines that smell of blood and gunpowder every time Statham, Owen or De Niro utters them.

iller Elite” is a guy’s movie and makes no bones about it. It’s an old-school, straightno-chaser action picture about an ex-CIA agent who hunts down assorted troops from the British Special Forces to save an American agent from a vengeful Arab. The film’s hook is that it pits Jason Statham against Clive Owen, the two marquee names among the current generation of British action stars. Statham plays Danny, an ex-CIA assassin blackmailed out of retirement to hunt down Spike (Owen) and his British Special Forces (SAS) colleagues as payback for a mission they took part in long ago. Robert De Niro is Hunter, who used to be Danny’s boss. He’s being held hostage by an Arab sheik intent on revenge. That sends Danny hither and yon, rounding up his own “team,” trying to take out guys nicknamed “The Clinic,” men who are just as lethal as he is. Danny and his crew must make the killings look like accidents so there will be no reprisals. Standard killer-for-hire stuff, in other words. But what sets “Killer Elite” apart from, say, your typical stubbly faced Statham B-movie actioner is the dialogue — reams of crisp, punchy hardboiled lines

that co-writer/director Gary McKendry and screenwriter Matt Sherring cooked up or copped from the Ranulph Fiennes novel “The Feather Men.” “I’m done with killing,” Danny mutters. “Maybe killing isn’t done with you,” Hunter mutters back. “Killing’s easy. Living with it’s the hard part.” Government red tape and restrictions dog both the hunters and the hunted. “I’ve got no problem with blood. It’s ink that worries me.” Thinking of double-crossing Danny? Maybe going into hiding afterward? “Remember, everybody gets found.” And there’s this pithy lecture on old soldiers — “No uniform. No war. You’re not ‘Special.’ They don’t know what to do with you. You don’t know what to do with yourself.” McKendry, new to feature films, wanders a bit, giving us government intrigues, a love interest for Danny (Yvonne Strahovski) and other distractions. But he handles the assorted “hits” with gritty, period flair. The film is “based on a true story,” so the setting is the early ’80s — a “time of crisis, revolution.” That makes it something of a parable for our times, men sent to do a dirty job for their government, only to have their government back the other side, years later.

‘Moneyball’ much more than your typical baseball film movie review

BY ROGER MOORE The Orlando Sentinel

‘M

★★★★ (of 5) DIRECTOR: Bennett Miller. STARRING: Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Robin Wright, Philip Seymour Hoffman. RATED: PG-13 for some strong language. RUN TIME: 2 hours, 13 minutes. WHAT DID YOU THINK?: Find this review at www. charlestonscene.com and offer your opinion of the film.

MELINDA SUE GORDON/COLUMBIA PICTURES-SONY/AP

Brad Pitt (left) and Jonah Hill in a scene from “Moneyball.” They brush him off. They base decisions on a player’s look, how “ugly” his girlfriend is. And they’ve been doing it for decades. But when Billy stumbles into a doughy young Yale economics grad named Peter (Jonah Hill) who has better questions, he’s ready to start a revolution. It’s not about batting average, it’s about getting on base. It’s not about defense, it’s about runs. “We’ll find value in players that nobody else will see.” I don’t know if director Bennett Miller (“Capote”) is much of a baseball fan, but this feels like a curious outsider’s view of the game and this “system” that exploded 100 years of accepted wisdom. And that’s a great thing. The movie dwells on few players (most were nonames, an “island of misfit toys” they’re called) but instead hangs with Beane as he and Peter struggle with rebellious scouts, a cheap owner, contemptuous peers,

a defiant manager (Hoffman brings a glorious contained rage to Art Howe) and players — some of whom will have their hearts broken and their spirits crushed when they’re traded or sent to the minors. “Just you and me, Pete,” Beane declares. “We’re all in.” It’s a triumph of tone, and much of this spins off of Pitt, who plays a caring but absent dad, a distant boss who has to be ruthless and a thin-skinned ex-jock who is buried under a mountain of criticism when things go wrong. As they will. Pitt makes his characterflawed, uncertain, temperamental and impulsive. His is a performance that makes this an inside baseball movie that even nonfans can understand and enjoy. And he plays this confidencestarved gambler with a verve that Oscar voters are almost sure to reward, sometime after the dust has settled on another baseball season.

oneyball” is a thinking person’s baseball movie, and a baseball fan’s thinking movie. It’s based on the Michael Lewis book about Billy Beane, the ex-ballplayerturned-Oakland A’s general manager who upended the game by rebuilding his team through cold-hearted statistical analysis called “sabermetrics.” “Moneyball” takes a dry story about numbers and noname ballplayers and turns it into something funny, deep and illuminating. And as Beane, Brad Pitt gives perhaps his smartest, subtlest performance ever. His Beane is a man at war with himself. He’s as superstitious as any baseball fan — he won’t watch his Oakland A’s play, even when a trip to the World Series is on the line. He may show a little of Pitt’s swagger when he’s making a trade or imposing his will on the manager (Philip Seymour Hoffman) or the team. But in flashbacks, we see the Beane who once was a bonus baby, a promising prospect who spent years trying to break into the big leagues to make use of the prodigious talents all the scouts claimed he had. The older, wiser Beane knows, better than the crusty, contemptuous coots who are his team’s scouting corps, that “confidence” is one thing all their hunches, gut feelings and stats-quoting can’t measure. And confidence, which did in Beane’s playing career, just may be what is still holding him back. Stuck with a small-market club with a limited budget, a team that cannot hang on to its stars, this guy who “hates losing more than I love winning” tells his scouts, “You’re asking the wrong questions.” They grumble.

And Cooper captures the double, a man whose family is safe only as long as he does what he’s told, but a man who comes to see that even that threat has limits to its effectiveness. Tamahori, working with material closer to his breakthrough film, “Once Were Warriors,” than anything he’s done in his Hollywood action picture years, doesn’t flinch in showing the monster’s appetite for flesh and things of the flesh. And Tamahori doesn’t shy away from depicting the butchery that made Uday a feared and reviled figure in Iraq, somebody who needed a body double simply to survive. The kinkiness, the temptations and the heartless cruelty are the draws here. And the ending smacks of Hollywood rewriting of history. But “The Devil’s Double” shows the political consequences of Uday’s misdeeds, the delicate negotiations

Special to The Post and Courier restaurant) handles the over-

hez Fish would be right at home in the South of France. You can’t help but notice its bright, whitewashed siding and cobalt blue trim — a colorful lure to entice you into its two long and narrow dining rooms. This popular seafood restaurant opened in 2003 and closed in 2008. It was a sad sight on the side of Betsy Kerrison Parkway, a buried nautical dining treasure awaiting resuscitation. And that is exactly what it got as current owner and chef Rene Constantin painted, polished and refreshed this rustic property on the way to Seabrook and Kiawah islands.

Menu memories

Many dishes from the original menu are on Constantin’s bill of fare. The tomato basil crab bisque ($4.95, $5.95), simple rice pilaf, white wine butter sauces, panko-crusted goat cheese salad ($7.95) and sesame crusted tuna ($18.95) make their mark — returning pleasure to the tourists and locals who want “more of the same.” The Basque-inspired vegetables of zucchini, yellow squash, bell peppers and onions form picturesque haystacks topping most dishes. The daily specials at the time of our visit included gazpacho, an asparagus salad, beet salad, bouillabaisse and penne pasta with tomatoes and spinach. A “meat lovers special” was not prepared that evening.

us. The stone crab claws were deftly cracked, which made for ease of eating. The pecan-crusted black grouper ($18.95) made a return engagement, and its thick white flesh cloaked with nuts and breadcrumbs came from the saute pan to the plate in fine fashion. The food charms with seafood freshness and overall the preparations are consistently good. The simple rice pilaf, consistent vegetable garnishes and practiced emulsion of beurre blanc (a white wine butter sauce) ease the congestion for a kitchen shackled by its size. The menu embraces simple, French-inspired foods with accents of Mexico, Italy and Asia.

Fruits of the vine

The wine list is brief. It offers $4 house wines and sangria by the glass. For some, these price points will have great appeal, but the food and wine pairing could benefit from an upgrade. Servers are friendly, attentive and sometimes distracted as the flow from the kitchen intersects with the

A bloodorange maraschino cherry gelato refreshed on a hot September night; and profiteroles (all six of them) had a flawless pastry cream filling and bittersweet chocolate topping that is both classic and Proustian.

Old school

Chez Fish feels like a momand-pop operation. The

kitchen is old school, born of a time when pleats were earned by techniques mastered in the kitchen and consistency was equivalent to mastery. It possesses a coastal bonhomie that appeals, and the French inflections on its menu translate well to the Lowcountry’s maritime bounty. Its return to Johns Island is welcomed, and its commitment to fresh seafood, seasonal vegetables, local farms and farmers is right “at home.”

Obviously, chicken takes well to brining, so what could be better than a buttermilk brine? You have the acidity of the buttermilk and the salt working to ensure your chicken comes out tender, juicy and flavorful. As I was discussing the other day with a customer, even though brining may seem like an extra step to the uninitiated, you are really making your life easier because it is much more difficult to dry out your chicken or Thanksgiving turkey after a good brine. So take the time to brine! That would be a good bumper sticker!

Local scene loses a Charleston’s Needtobreathe brings juggernaut with breakup honesty, dedication with latest album of popular band Leslie BY CAITLIN O’DONNELL

Special to The Post and Courier

W

hen listening to Charleston-based band Needtobreathe’s newest album, “The Reckoning,” it’s not hard to tell the talent and immense passion behind it. The album represents a different theme for each of the four childhood friends in the group. For Bo Rinehart, it’s a culminating point in a career that began with handmade posters and stage design. Rinehart is joined by brother and lead singer Bear, along with Seth Bolt and Joe Stillwell. “It feels like at this point, we’ve paid our dues, we’ve just been all-out from Day One,” Rinehart said. “I think people are starting to figure out who we are; it’s time to really make an impression. We’re not sneaking up on anyone anymore. It’s kind of our chance to knock it out of the park.” The guys have come a long way since their earliest EPs, recorded in a garage in Walhalla. They were fun, Rinehart said, but terrible. “Everything we put down we thought was golden, we were so impressed with ourselves,” he said. “It wasn’t in an arrogant way, we were so happy to get chords down and make a CD.” Now on their fourth album, Rinehart said the process of starting out, without quite knowing how, has continued to shape their development as a band. This time around, he said they were incredibly critical of the album, pushing their songs to the absolute limit. Typically, the group brings about 80 to 90 demos to the table to play around with and waits for the best to make themselves apparent. “We said let’s not stop until

MARIE RODRIGUEZ

The band Leslie performed at the Party at the Joe earlier this year. As a fan and a supporter, I want one last time to stand in the back of the room at a Leslie show. I want to watch Jonathan Carman swing his double shampooed hair as he kicks off the beat to “Devil Ain’t Ready.” I want to see Jason Fox come in with heavy bass chords and a look of enjoyment from being on stage with his brothers. I have been around local music for seven years now. I’ve helped musicians get on the radio and get record deals. I have been part of creating local music festivals and have helped venues spotlight local music and be profitable by doing so. I would have never been a part of any of this without Leslie. I created a forum for local music on The Bridge at 105.5 because of Leslie’s music. I evolved in my sheltered view of guys in skinny jeans and long hair because of Sadler Vaden, Fox and Carman. My relationship with Leslie introduced me to other musicians and music folk whom I work with daily. The band was everything I loved about Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pearl Jam and The White Stripes. The music was accessible, and it made me question all of the music I listened to and all of my preconceived notions about local music.

’ll tell you a little secret about the live jazz community around here. We live in constant fear of losing our treasured musicians to some far-flung place. We know how good they are and the rest of the world is slowly, but surely, realizing this. We’re not as frightened, though, as we used to be. As our scene continues to build, the more Charleston becomes as good a base as anywhere else to pursue a fulfilling, materially rewarding career in performing jazz music. Just as good as, say, Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Washington, D.C., Denver, Minneapolis — any of them. They all have thriving (or, since the recession, surviving) local jazz scenes, and the quality of life available there affords a resident an opportunity at a lifestyle that promotes curiosity, camaraderie and creativity. The cities cited also were tops on a recent tour undertaken by the Rene Marie Quartet, a recording and touring ensemble that is popular around here. Its performing prowess has made it a Spoleto Festival USA favored artist, having turned in multiple concerts at the internationally acclaimed festival held annually in Charleston. The force-of-nature-style singer has a classy act, and it includes Charleston’s

The Rene Marie Quartet had six gigs in Spain and two in Scotland on the heels of a swing around the United States. Quentin Baxter, the band’s percussionist, music consultant, sound engineer and sommelier. He’s been on the road with Rene Marie for a decade now. He’s always come home, though, despite all kinds of offers. On this last tour, June 24July 27, the needle on the Ihope-they-don’t-leave meter spiked. This time, it was because Charleston bassist Kevin Hamilton, aka Slamilton, joined the band. “Great for him!” we were all saying when we heard. We all knew he was fully capable and that it was a home run of a career move. Marie is a major artist on the prestigious Motema label. She’s in a class with the likes of a Dianne Reeves, a Cassandra Wilson or a Dee Dee Bridgewater — all, by the way, fellow Spoleto performers and the cream of the jazz vocalist crop. Right on, Slamilton. But would he come back? He sure did. Whew! I spoke with Hamilton and Marie shortly after he got back home. It was a great experience for both of them,

they reported, but it didn’t lure Hamilton to seek greener pastures somewhere else. In fact, it seems that it only solidified Hamilton’s ongoing pursuit of excellence on his instrument and an insight into living and working at home that’s put in greater perspective by venturing out from time to time. I don’t think we’ll lose him. Instead, we’ve retained a native son who has decided to dig his roots deeper as he continues to explore outwardly. Hamilton replaced longtime bassist Rodney Jordan, who lives in Florida and has decided to work more with pianist Marcus Roberts. Marie said both Baxter and Jordan vigorously recommended Hamilton. “He worked really hard,” Marie said. “When there was down time, his nose would be in the books, looking at charts, on the iPod, talking to guys, talking and asking about this and that. “... He wants to do well, and that meant more to me than anything else. He took it seriously. He was coming to a group where you can’t just rely on standard jazz chord

changes.” If anything, Marie’s band is original in its approach to its own material and covers. All the members are virtuosi, so improvisational interaction is what you get with her groups. Its songbook is huge. “I have a deeper knowledge of the music,” Hamilton told me. “I talked to (pianist) Kevin (Bales) a lot. I grew a lot. He talked to me on a very deep level. I realized they were playing on that kind of level, going to the core of what the music was, who wrote it, the lyrics, the chord structure, when was it written, how we’re doing it now.” He rose to the occasion when he was out front. “We were doing duets,” he reminisced. “I knew she would call them. At Yoshi’s (legendary San Francisco Bay Area club), the first tune is a song. It went very well. People dug it. It was just me, Rene and the bass.” Hamilton survived the built-in perils of the road — the canceled flights, the failed loudspeakers, the occasional bad instrument, all of it. He’s a full-fledged member of the band now. Marie said, “We were all championing him. By the end of the run, he was on it.” The band is looking to go out again later this year. It will be supporting Marie’s “Voice of My Beautiful Country,” recorded in Mount Pleasant, and “Black Lace Freudian Slip,” an October release, both on Motema.

Scott H. Biram Tuesday at the Pour House Don’t call him folksy or a singer/songwriter. Don’t call him acoustic rock or modern country with a twist. In fact, there isn’t really much that can be said to categorize Scott H. Biram. His devilish blend of punk, classic country and muddy blues is rough, raw and spirited like no other. Biram generally plays a ’59 Gibson and harmonica and stomps an amplified left foot all at once between grunts, growls and hoots to create such a chaotic and unmanicured style that it takes you right back to the true spirit of the blues and offers up a reminder of the genre’s rich and dark heritage. Biram will perform Tuesday at the Pour House, 1977 Maybank Highway, with Whiskey Diablo. Tickets are $10 at the door or online at www.etix.com.

Mike Doughty YES AND ALSO YES (RED)

There are songwriters who simply write a song as it comes to them, letting the lyrics flow freely, and then there are artists, such as Mike Doughty, who like to experiment with words until they find one that goes in exactly the right place in a song. There is no wasted space in a typical Doughty song. The former frontman for Soul Coughing always has had a delivery that gave a nod to spoken word poetry, but he also can write a great pop hook. On Doughty’s latest, “Yes and Also Yes,” Doughty turns in a solid collection of songs that might have fans reminiscing fondly about his Soul Coughing days. Songs such as “Into the Un,” “Makelloser Mann” and “Rational Man” feature rhythm signatures and lyrics that will remind you of Doughty’s former band more than on his past solo albums. Other songs, including “Na Na Nothing,” “Day by Day by” and “Vegetable,” are equal to the best moments on his better past solo efforts, including “Haughty Melodic” and “Golden Delicious.” The best tracks on the CD are the ultra-catchy “Na Na Nothing,” the hypnotic “Makelloser Mann,” and “Holiday (What Do You Want?),” which features a guest appearance by Rosanne Cash. The material here is stronger than on his last release, “Sad Man Happy Man,” and Doughty continues his reign as one of the best American songwriters out there right now.

Kevin West

ONCE IN A LIFETIME (INDEPENDENT) Local songwriter Kevin West has never tried to hide his love for mixing rock, soul and rap music. On his latest effort, “Once in a Lifetime,” the artist delivers an inspired if uneven collection of songs. You have to give the guy points for enthusiasm and an obvious love for the musical styles he plays with. The opening track, “Sky High,” is reminiscent of something Lenny Kravitz might come up with after listening to Jimi Hendrix. That’s actually a compliment, as the song itself is extremely catchy and explains why West has been able to make a living as a musician locally. Other songs, such as the alcohol soaked “One Too Many” and the memorable “Everything,” further support this. But unfortunately there are a few spots where West’s boastful lyrics become his Achilles’ heel. Case in point are the songs “Excuse Me Beautiful” and “I’m Alright,” both of which are ambitious enough but end up sounding unfinished. Still, for the most part, this is an interesting release, written and performed by an artist who is unafraid to put his material out there for folks to listen to. The final four tracks on the CD, especially “The Story of My Life,” which features some lovely trumpet playing by Kenny Price, almost completely redeem those few tracks that don’t quite work.

Eco-tainment: Annual fair to offer green message BY DENISE K. JAMES

Special to The Post and Courier

T

he Charleston Green Fair has been making its mark on the Lowcountry for a few years now. On Sunday, you can get your green fix in Marion Square and learn about ways to keep Charleston environmentally friendly. “There are tons of new features for the fair this year,” says Suzie Webster, executive director. “But we’re also bringing back the classics.” The fair is focused a great deal on nonprofits that are hoping to send the message of conservation to Charleston. About 40 organizations are involved with this year’s event, which will feature everything from education tents to Eco-Carnival activities. “The nonprofits bring all the coordinating materials and ideas, but we provide a platform, and we work with them to deliver the messages,” says Webster. “There are a lot of smaller nonprofits who couldn’t have this event alone, so it’s important to have this venue for their missions.” The education tents are a new addition this year and will focus on a few different areas of helping the environment thrive. The tent themes will include “Talking Trash,” “Nature Conservation,” “Green Building,” “Water Tent” and others.

Water stewards

David Joyner, who will be working with the Water Tent, has high hopes for the tent’s goals throughout the day. “We wanted to keep it broad and just call it a Water Tent. That way, we can cover water quality, preservation and everything pertaining to it,” he says. The Ashley-Cooper Storm Water Education Team is at the helm of the Water Tent, and they aim to address the public about water pollution, according to Joyner. “When you have an urban

They’re the same waterways that we fish in and swim in. The waterways are an intimate part of our lives, especially living on the coast.” Joyner says it’s easy to prevent water pollution in our

buying clothing at Goodwill instead of at a trendy, new boutique. But Smith says that even new clothes can be green. “We’ll be featuring a line of baby clothing from Ocha Baby in the fashion show,” Smith explains. “Each organic item is hand dyed with tea, and the decorative initials are fashioned from vintage baby blankets. Green fashion covers a wide range from reused, to repurposed to being made with organic materials or simply traded in for something new to you.” Bring your gently used items to the Style Tent for the clothing swap, and you may find something you want. “I haven’t bought new clothing in probably over a year,” laughs Smith. “When my friends compliment a new look, they roll their eyes as I begin to tell them about the $8 head-to-toe outfit I put together from consignment stores, thrift stores, yard sales, or a leftover item from my clothing swap. Just because one person got tired of an item doesn’t mean someone else can’t make it their own and love it all over again.”

Another addition to this year’s fair is the New Belgium Beer Lounge, which will focus on food tasting, beer pairings and other fun stuff. Beer Lounge tickets are sold separately, and for $5, you can taste four different beer and food pairings. “One of the cool things about the Beer Lounge is that we’ll have beer selections there that you can’t normally buy in Charleston,” says Webster. And if you’re worried about missing a football game to attend the fair, fear not. Webster plans to have a television tent, featuring solar-powered televisions showing the big games! “We couldn’t ignore the need to show football,” she says.

With 10 restaurants involved and five bands playing in three outdoor green spaces, organizers are hoping for a partylike atmosphere. The restaurants taking part in the festivities are the Barbeque Joint, Chart, Cork Neighborhood Bistro, Deja Vu II, EVO, Madra Rua, The Mill, Park Pizza Company, Sesame Burgers and Zocalo. The Bands playing are the Defilers, the Generations, General Lee Speaking, the Keepers and the V Tones. Their styles range from rockabilly to bluegrass and Top 40. Crawlers are encouraged to mingle from venue to venue to taste the different foods and spirits available. Jenny Lee Ford, manager of Madra Rua, says, “It’s a great idea.

ocal restaurants and bars in Park Circle are taking part in a pub crawl Saturday. The event is going to feature a variety of food and drinks as well as live music and a silent auction. The Pint of Hope Pub Crawl is being hosted by Lowcountry AIDS Services and is free, though donations are encouraged and a portion of the proceeds from food and beverage sales will go toward the cause. LAS, which has been active in the area for the past 20 years, provides assistance for more than 500 clients. A nonprofit agency, LAS offers essential assistance that ranges from counseling and testing to housing and legal support. Sean Ferneau, assistant to the director at LAS, says he is looking forward to a “nice celebration for the community and an opportunity to

reddy Bensch, the president of SweetWater Brewing Company, has said that you can’t have good beer without good water. So the Charleston Pub Crawl and Charleston Waterkeeper seem to be an obvious partnership.

K

ent Lovelace likes to tell stories. But he’s not your typical verbal storyteller. He likes to speak through his oil paintings, but even those are different from the norm, as they are painted on copper panels. Indigo Fine Art Gallery co-owner Helen Beacham explains how Lovelace taught himself to paint luminescent oils on copper panels 10 years ago while he was surrounded by metals used in his lithography business, Stone Press Editions in Seattle. “There’s a seduction in how the light is reflected through the transparent oils I use in the glazing process,” says the artist.

Highlights include oils on copper, all-female art show in West Ashley, Art Institute and sale in North Charleston

“A unique and lovely feature associated with Kent’s work is the outer edge of copper that he leaves totally untouched, as if in tribute to his process. ... He then seals his final paintings with a varnish that keeps the copper from oxidizing,” says Beacham. Indigo Fine Art Gallery is the exclusive representative of his paintings on the East Coast. There will be a reception showcasing his newest series of oils on copper, titled “Stories, Elements and Place,” 58 p.m. Friday at 102 Church St. Call 805-9696 or visit www.indigofineartgallery. com.

‘Artists on the Hunt’

If you’ve ever wanted to capture small creatures or dive into the minds of a handful of talented artists, check out a new show opening Friday at the Oak Barrel Tavern. “To Catch a Sparrow or Net a Fox Art: Four Female Artists on the Hunt” features works by all female artists — Lisa Shimko, Lisa Abernathy, Sarah Boyts Yoder and Hirona Matsuda — and focuses on their interpretations and interactions with nature.

Organizer Abernathy describes the show as “an interplay with stream of consciousness and a dialog with nature — through Shimko’s dynamic birds and beasts, Matsuda’s incorporation of natural ephemera into her found object assemblages, Yoder’s nature-inspired abstract paintings” and Abernathy’s own “fairytale-esque stories of humans and their animal counterparts.” The opening for the exhibit will be 6-9 p.m. Friday. Guests can enjoy craft beers, fine wines and delicious

food from Oak Barrel Tavern, 825-B Savannah Highway in West Ashley, next to The Roost Bar ‘N Grille. Admission is free, and the show will run through late October. For an interview with Yoder, see Page 29.

Q&A with local artist Sarah Boyts Yoder

BY VIKKI MATSIS

Special to The Post and Courier

O

n Friday, Oak Barrel Tavern in West Ashley will host the opening of a new art show, “To Catch a Sparrow or Net a Fox.” Four Charleston women collaborated to create the show. Sarah Boyts Yoder is one of the women Yoder whose artwork will be featured in the show. Her mixed-media paintings are multilayered and interweave abstraction with simple complexity. Materials in her paintings range from house paint to book pages and vintage coloring books. Her works of art often feature recurring symbols and shapes that represent being protected, carried, held and enclosed. Yoder hopes her work will inspire emotions and memories of the viewer’s inner self. “The heart and brain are vessels, and I think of them as holding and storing emotions, colors, bits of songs, blips of memories, people, images and words. If you could see inside one’s heart or mind, I imagine you might see all these things swirling around in a wild, colorful tornado,” the artist said. Meet Yoder along with other artists Hirona Matsuda, Lisa Shimko and Lisa Abernathy at the free opening reception 6-9 p.m. Friday at the Oak Barrel

ACE’S ON BRIDGE By BOBBY WOLFF

The Junior World Championshipsholdzonaltournamentsall over the world to determine the qualifiers for this event. When Poland took on Sweden in a Junior European Championships, thePolishdeclarerdemonstrated aproperunderstandingofoneof the more complex areas of the game — namely, the theory of restricted choice. In one room the Swedes finished three down in an optimistic four-spade contract when declarer misguessed diamonds early and ran into a ruff. But Bartosz Chmurski, who is now an international player on Poland’s open team, reached the more decorous contract of three spades. The lead was a low heart toEast’sace,aclubbacktoWest’s

ace, and a low diamond switch. It now seems as if declarer has a straight guess in diamonds, but Chmurski got it right when he hopped up with dummy’s king to make his contract. I think he made the right theoretical play too, having inferred thatWesthadmadeanawkward lead from K-x-x in hearts at trick one. (Because the defenders did not try to take a ruff, the suit must surely be 3-3.) Since West might have preferred to lead a diamond rather than a heart had he held the diamond queen, but was relatively unlikely to find an opening diamond lead away from the ace, it was more likely that the diamond ace was in West’s hand.

T

he Carolina Green Fair stops by Marion Square on Sunday to educate the public on things such as water conservation, green building, recycling, local food options and more. The event is kid friendly, as there will be an Eco-Carnival with fun games, a rock climbing wall and facepainting. Last week’s winner of the tie-breaker, Lauren Bridge, is taking on Sonia Merell, who works from home.

STEVE JESSMORE/THE SUN NEWS

Myrtle Beach students decorate the sidewalk for Earth Day last year.

EAR ABBY: Regarding the letter from “Respectful in Ohio,” I am glad you addressed proper etiquette in cemeteries. The cemetery where my family is buried has become a playground for the neighbors. I see people walking their dogs, even though they are aware of the “No Dogs Allowed” signs. Children are biking, Rollerblading and skateboarding, with joggers and walkers. I go to the cemetery to visit lost loved ones and tend to their graves. It’s disgusting and disturbing that these folks are using our sacred place for their personal pleasures. — JEAN IN MASS. DEAR JEAN: Thank you, but some readers felt cemeteries also are for the living. DEAR ABBY: Prior to public parks of the late 19th cen-

DEAR ABBY tury, the only open setting in most areas was the local cemetery. People would stroll the lawns, picnic and socialize there. While I don’t condone rowdy behavior, it’s wrong to think they are simply for the dead and mourning. — PATRICK H., OHIO DEAR ABBY: I want children to play on my grave. What could be better than spending eternity listening to the laughter of children? As for dogs, unless you are going to diaper all the pigeons, dogs are the least of my worries! — ALANSON IN NEW JERSEY
