EDITOR’S NOTES

et’s raise a glass, Statesboro! The referendums for Sunday alcohol sales passed by a landslide! I see this as a historic victory for Statesboro. Not only are we creating ways to improve our local economy, we are actively engaged in making changes to adapt with the times. I look forward to the business growth that will happen in Statesboro due to these referendums passing. I was just at the Midtown Wine Cellar this evening and I picked up (along with a bottle of Merlot) some fascinating information on “the 3/50 project.” Basically, the 3/50 project encourages you to “think about which three independently owned businesses you’d miss most if they were gone. Stop in and say hello. Pick up a little something that you might regularly buy at a giant store. Your contribution is what keeps those businesses around. If half the employed U.S. population

COME TRY OUR NEW SEASONAL MENU!

by AMY MERRITT spent $50 each month in independently owned businesses, their purchases would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue. Imagine the positive impact if half of the employed population did that. For every $100 spent in independently owned businesses, $68 returns to the local economy through taxes, payroll, and other expenditures. If you spend that in a national chain, only $43 stays here. Spend it online and nothing comes home.” It was the simplest way for me to be reminded that I do enjoy the prices and service at the Midtown Wine Cellar and other independent businesses around town such as Mr. Omelette’s, Red Light, and Deloach’s Music. And, if I want them to stick around I’d better show them support when I can. Oh yea, and Happy Thanksgiving! I’ll see you jive turkeys at happy hour. Gnat’s has got a pumpkin beer with your name on it.

‘IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE RADIO SHOW’ AT THE AVERITT CENTER

A

lmost everyone knows the story of the classic holiday favorite, It’s a Wonderful Lif, but we’ll bet you have never seen (or heard) it like this. This is the uplifting and bittersweet tale of George Bailey’s close call with death on Christmas Eve, of a sympathetic angel hoping for his wings, of how important and special George really is to those around him, and what this world would have missed had he not been born. This is a story of Bedford Falls, about neighbors, friends and family, and about the difference one person makes in the lives of so many others. This 1940’s “live broadcast” of Frank Capra’s beloved film takes us back to the Golden Age of Radio. The WVL studio’s “On Air” sign lights up and the heartwarming holiday classic comes to life through the bygone radio formula of a few hardworking actors, live sound effects – and a listener’s imagination. A creative play within a play and a new way to enjoy a classic story, the form of the radio show will have you wishing for a bygone era before the TV. Members $27 Box/ $22 Adult/ $10 Youth Non-Members $30 Box/ $25 Adult/ $10 Youth. For tickets call the box office at (912) 212-ARTS (2787). THURSDAY

his is a place for writers of poetry to come share their work with others. The 11th Hour, as well as Special Guest poet, Dr. Laura Newbern, will decide on one poem to be published in an issue of the 11th Hour Statesboro.

Dr. Laura Newbern will be judging the 11th Hour Poetry Slam on December 10th.Newbern teaches at Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville, Georgia, where she is a member of the MFA Program faculty and serves as the Poetry Editor of Arts & Letters. Her collection of poems, Love and the Eye, was selected by Claudia Rankine for the 2010 Kore Press First Book Award. “In Love and the Eye there is no world, only images of a world holding so fast to us we are more nature than human, more landscape than flesh. The gaze gets lost in “a cloud coming,” a stick becomes a leg. There is a delicate elegance in the shifting gaze of these poems. One leans into the beauty of this collection because of all the ways it does not settle down, because of all the ways it insists on seeing.” —Claudia Rankine HERMAN CAIN WITH WIFE

with JFK who had to fight that challenge as well. My opinion is that there are hundreds of people in the United States that would rather have an enema during halftime of the GeorgiaGeorgia Tech game at midfield than run for political office due to the “ethics” of the press of a tabloid driven society and what they and their families would have to endure.

moments of the Cuban Missile Crisis and gave our country a vision to get to the moon and back, yet was addicted to prescription drugs because of a horrible back and his sufferings of Addison’s Disease. (Add to the fact that both men had mistresses before and after they were elected President and neither would have made it under the scrutiny our politicians have to endure today. Everyone in the press knew about both men and yet would not disclose any of it because it was in the national interest for them not to. So, is it ethical for the press of today to “out” politicians?) Let’s look at some other things that make “great” headlines. Did it really matter I the election of 2008 that Sarah Palin’s daughter had a baby out of wedlock? Does it matter that Palin herself has a Down’s Syndrome child? Yet every comedian of the left takes shots at her all the time at the expense of these innocent victims. Criticize Palin because of her Katie Couric interview or the way she governed Alaska. That’s fine. But it’s ethically corrupt to keep pointing out that Palin has family issues just like the rest of us. BATTLE ROADS House Speaker Newt Gingrich’s biggest problem, according to the press, is all of the baggage he brings with him because of his personal life. Did that affect the way he brought Republicans together when he was Speaker and his role in The Contract With America? Realistically, will it affect the way that Herman Cain potentially can govern our nation just because he settled some harassment charges out of court over a decade ago? Does Mitt Romney’s or John Huntsman’s religion have anything to do with the way they would lead our country should they be elected President? Probably not any more than it did

everal months ago I wrote this article about how the press scrutinizes our politicians to the minutia and how many potentially good leaders it could cost our country. Over the past several weeks we have seen the pattern strike again with the accusations of sexual harassment that has been reported about former Godfather Pizza CEO and presidential hopeful Herman Cain. From what I have read, these ‘allegations’ are about oneone-hundredth the level of seriousness compared to the many facts and allegations leveled at thenPresidential contender Bill Clinton, who not only made sexually suggestive remarks, but had a twelve year affair with Gennifer Flowers and was sued by Paula Jones for sexual harassment while he was Governor of Arkansas and she a state employee. (Did I forget to mention that Arkansas State Troopers were used to escort Ms. Jones to her liaisons with Slick Willie and that she settled out of court for $850,000?) In the advent of the computer, we can now know almost every thing conceivable about someone. (With the exception of President Obama, who to his credit in some cases has kept just about everything about himself private. For the record, I think he was born in Hawaii but do have questions about circumstances around his birth that remain in my mind unanswered. However, beyond the actual site of his birth, none of that is relevant in the way he has botched his handling of the country. He has also kept almost all of his school records sealed as well.) Quite honestly I feel that maybe we don’t need to know as much about our politicians’ personal life unless they have committed a crime or have done something completely unethical to the point where they cannot be trusted to handle the business of the people. Look at some of the leaders in our nations’ history we would have lost had there been the internet and reporters who went after the “truth” in spite of the consequences to the country. One of our Founding Fathers liked to sit around naked taking “airbaths” all day, had an insatiable sexual appetite and had a son who was

loyal to the British during the Revolution. Think about how America would be different if the tabloids would have found out about Benjamin Franklin’s eccentricities. Would it have been ethical for the press of the time to point these things out to citizens of our fledgling nation? It was also recently discovered that a former Governor of the largest state in the country fathered a child out of wedlock by one of his household staff. Am I writing about Arnold Schwarzenegger? No. In this case, I’m writing about Thomas Jefferson who fathered at least one child by Sally Hemmings, a young slave who served Jefferson at Monticello. Would it have done the country good for Jefferson to be cast out in shame much like Schwarzenegger has been or John Edwards, not withstanding his criminal activities, has in the recent past? (It was brought out in 1802 by journalist James Callender, but Jefferson never responded to it and his family flatly denied it. Instead of becoming the National Enquirer of his time, Calleneder let the story die and wasn’t confirmed until a DNA test was completed 200 years later.) Let me point out, although I do not condone any of the behavior of these men, I certainly sympathize with them in the fact that everyone his human and we all make mistakes. There are obviously some things we certainly need to know about the men and women we elect such as whether a person has been caught in illegal or unethical business dealings, if they are a child molester, etc….But do we even really need to know their health status? In a world where a HIPPA agreement is needed for just about everything, we expect and demand our public servants to disclose to the entire world every possible ailment they have ever had. We would have probably lost two of our greatest leaders if that would have been true during their campaigns: Franklin Roosevelt, who presided over a two front war and the worst economic times in the history of the United States, yet couldn’t hardly get out of his wheelchair because of polio, (He also had an affair with Lucy Mercer decades before he even ran for Governor of New York which ruined the intimacy of his marriage to Eleanor, but did nothing to affect his effectiveness as a leader.) and John Kennedy, who led us through the tense

e all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Nothing beats feasting on perfectly cooked bacon and cheesy grits made just to your liking. Grant it, eggs are great too. I like mine sunny side up and doused in pepper sauce. But that’s enough about me. What about you? Chances are, you are a late sleeper who finds little time to cook the breakfast your heart desires. Maybe you don’t eat breakfast at all, and because of this, at about one or two in the afternoon, your energy drops drastically and you find yourself desperate for lunchtime. Mr. Omelette’s Midtown Café is the one place in Statesboro where breakfast is not only served all day long, it is made with care and served with true hospitality. Unlike other breakfast restaurants in the Boro’, Mr. Omelette’s does NOT hide behind a franchise name in order to serve low quality food, and terrible service. Instead, they provide extremely friendly staff and owners who are involved daily. As far as the food goes, you couldn’t ask for a better menu. They have Signature Omelettes and a Create your own Omelettes. They have rotating specials including Soups and Barbeque. Their Smoothies are to die for, and they even offer $3 Smoothies between 5pm and 7pm everyday! They also have a wide range of

specialty coffees, lattés, and espressos. Considering I go there about twice a week, I can tell you that the White Chocolate Mochas are the best in the city. Mr. Omelette’s Midtown Café has a terrific outside porch that I love to sit and chill on. Their upstairs is a special catering spot for meetings, gatherings and parties. In fact, they will be hosting an 11th Hour Poetry Slam on December 10th where writers can come and share their work with others. Look for the 11th Hour Poetry Slam page on Facebook for more details, and be sure to like ‘Mr. Omelette’s Midtown Café’ to get great deals and announcements over Facebook.

Why choose Mr. Omelette’s instead of Waffle House? 1) Does WoHo have live music on the weekends? I think not. 2) Does WoHo provide a firm family atmosphere? Certainly not. 3) Do kids eat free Wednesday 3pm – 9pm at WoHo? Of course not. 4) Does WoHo have special bread choices such as Sourdough, Rye, Bagel, Biscuit, Raisin, Texas Toast, Flat Bread? Nope, not at all. 5) Does WoHo offer 25 cent coffee before 9am with purchase of meal? Nope. AMY MERRITT

SCENE

I

We caught you having fun at Dos Primos and KBOB’s! Pick us up every two weeks for a new full page of scene pics, exclusively in The 11th Hour!

t’s another beautiful November day here in Statesboro. I’m sitting here reflecting on some of the major sports news that made headlines this year. I’ve realized that 2011 has been a year of lockouts, and frankly, I’ve been frustrated by it all. I know that I’m not the only who feels this way, so I’ve taken this avenue to vent my feelings out in the hopes that you all will be informed and entertained by my opinions. Hold on to your seatbelts! Where should I begin? I guess the lockout is as good a place as any. If someone would have told me way back in January that both the NFL and the NBA would enter into a lockout, I would have told them that they were crazy. Yes, the NFL went entered into a lockout in early March after labor negotiations broke down. There basketball brethren shortly followed suit in July with a similar break down in labor talks. Now I didn’t have that much of a problem with the NFL lockout because I agreed with some the principles that were being debated. One main factor in the lockout was the topic of rookie wages. I was surprised at the huge contracts that NFL rookies were receiving coming out of college. Some of the contracts would be in the $60 million range with a guaranteed signing bonus of up to $30 million. I didn’t believe that players coming out of college didn’t deserve that kind of money for work that they haven’t done yet. The NFL owners agreed. Other issues included revenue

sharing and drug testing. Thankfully, both sides were able to come to an agreement without cancelling any games. Unfortunately, the NBA has just lost it! They have been in a lockout since the beginning of July and NO progress has been made at all. It is extremely frustrating to watch unfold. I see the owners complaining about how much money they were losing. This is a true fact, but it was their fault that this is so. They are the ones signing mediocre players to such lucrative contracts and not getting their money worth in return. They don’t receive any sympathy from me at all on this subject matter. This is really the main issue that is holding back the NBA season from finally starting. So far, all basketball games have been cancelled through the month of November, and even more games are threatened. Honestly, both sides come across as being greedy. There are major economic problems going on in the world and they are undecided on how to split billions of dollars in revenue. Only one person is losing in all of this. Who? The answer would be the people that make up the adoring fans all the way down to people who work in the arenas to provide for their families. This has to end! As a hard working college student, I deserve the right to relax in my room and watch a nice NBA game on ESPN or TNT. The NFL managed to get their act together, and I hope that the NBA will soon. The fans are the ones suffering, and I’m frustrated by it. Anthony L. Brown, II

LOCKOUTS AND A FRUSTRATED FAN

8 NOV 28 - DEC 12, 2011


NIGHTLIFE

OUT & ABOUT W It’s a recap of what you may have missed these past two weeks, and what you shouldn’t miss in the weeks ahead.

Don’t miss American Premier Wrestling’s ‘Brawl for All-U-Can-Eat III event, December 2

hat I love about Statesboro is that there is always something cool going on. If you’re not one of those people who keep a precise calendar by your side at all times, there’s a good chance you’re going to miss out on something. If you missed the International Fair which was held at Mill Creek Regional Park, you shouldn’t have. Not to mention the fun and interesting food which was being served, the performers were out of this world! They had Polynesian dancers, West African dancers, Latin Heritage dancers, and more. Don’t miss it next year. If you missed Nickel Bag of Funk and Cold Duck Time at Buffalo’s you missed a hell of a show. Out of Savannah, Nickel Bag of Funk proves to be a treat any time they grace a Statesboro stage. Paired up with Statesboro’s own Cold Duck Time, audiences got a good taste of the sound our region can produce: funky and soulful. You really shouldn’t have missed Davin McCoy at Gnat’s Landing. Not only is he terribly handsome, he’s got a set of vocal cords that must run directly into his soul. The man can sing. His lyrics and the sound he produces gives off such a genuine feel, you can’t help but smile as you listen. The good thing is, he is returning to Gnat’s December 17th, so you haven’t totally missed out. Chances are, lately you’ve been missing out on your own exercise routine. It happens to all of us this time of year. LOA Fitness for Women knows that you can’t say no to every slice of apple pie, or serving of mac-n-cheese. They are, however, dedicated to making sure each of their clients don’t miss their regular work out. Let them know you need help, and they will be glad to support you in all your work-out goals.

You definitely should not miss Tent City’s two night run at Dingus Magee’s on December 2nd and 3rd. While you’re at the show, be sure to ask about purchasing a Chambers t-shirt. All money made from these shirts goes to help paying Mr. Chambers’ hospital bills which have grown to be a burden on the family. Show your support to a Statesboro family who has supported Statesboro with their service for over thirty years! Don’t miss APW & Ryan’s A Night of Legends: Brawl for All-U-Can-Eat III. Tommy “Wildfire” Rich, and my personal favorite, Doink the Clown will be there wrestling the best of them. I was at the last Ryan’s Brawl for All-U-Can-Eat, and believe me when I say you have never laughed louder, cheered harder, or eaten more food than you will at this awesome event. Bell time is at 9pm on December 2nd, so get there to win prizes, gifts, and surprises. On December 1st the Movement, a bumpin reggae band, will be playing a show with the Domino Effect at Buffalo’s. The night of reggae would not be complete without great drink specials which are guaranteed to you all night long. It should be relaxing and exciting all at once, so don’t miss it! Last but not least, be sure and make it to the 11th Hour Poetry Slam being held at Mr. Omelette’s Midtown Café. This is a place for writers of poetry to come share their work with others. The 11th Hour, as well as Special Guest poet, Dr. Laura Newbern, will decide on one poem to be published in an issue of the 11th Hour Statesboro. All submissions are due to amymerritt11thhour@gmail.com on December 1st by noon. Each person my submit two poems to read and to be judged.

“Over the years, Club Mud has evolved into a three-day sale and exhibition opportunity for the students,” says Jane Pleak, professor of ceramics. “We have such a diverse group of students, the work always varies expanding creative offerings.” The Exhibition & Sale is free and open to the public. Student prices will vary. Cash or Check only, please.

GSU STUDENT EXHIBITION AND SALE STUDENT ARTWORK FOR SALE One-of-a-Kind Handmade Ceramics, Jewelry, Books & More! Thursday, December 1; 10am-9pm Friday, December 2; 10am-9pm Saturday, December 3; 10am-6pm

Over 100 undergraduate and graduate students will exhibit and sell their work in ceramics, porcelain and stoneware, jewelry, small metals, prints and handmade books.

Celebrating its 28th year, the Club Mud Exhibition and Sale provides an opportunity for students to develop as professional artists. While the artwork may change, what is consistent from year to year is the opportunity for student artists to exhibit, network with the public and understand the business side of fine art. “Club Mud,” says Pleak, “gives art students the opportunity to see what it’s like to become a professional artist.” The Club Mud Exhibition and Sale is a perfect opportunity to purchase beautifully unique, handmade items - for yourself or for someone else!
