COCONUT THAI CUISINE
by AMY MERRITT
ello everyone, my name is Amy Merritt. I recently relocated to Statesboro, GA after having graduated with a Literature degree from Georgia College & State University. My husband and I came here so that he could complete his forestry degree at the Southeastern Technical College located in Swainsboro. I have been blessed with this job opportunity in a time where employment is in short supply, and I do not take this blessing lightly. I am honored to be one of the many voices illuminating the diversity of Statesboro, Ga; a place that has so much to offer its inhabitants. Since moving down here, I have met only enjoyable personalities and sweet spirits. Thank you for the kindness you have already shown me, and I look forward to working with you in hopes of making this publication all that it has the potential to

SUPPORT IMAGINATION! COURTESY THE AVERITT CENTER FOR THE ARTS
here is one word that has the power to change the world. This single word inspires us to dream, to create, and, ultimately, to become our best selves. Imagine. Every change man has wrought over the centuries has begun with that one word. Someone imagined controlling fire, harnessing its power for humans to utilize; that idea became a fireplace, which became a stove, which became the heating and cooling systems we so casually utilize today. Once a upon a time, man imagined what it would be like to explore space, to step on the moon, to explore distant planets … Today’s technologies make those actions seem almost commonplace. Without imagination, our daily lives would be so boring! There would be no pictures, no films, no music, no literature, no fashion, no technology, no décor. Nothing would make us smile, laugh or gasp in delight and awe. And the people who imagine, who visualize and actualize and fill the world with things that aren’t boring, bland or blah? These are the people who excel. Imagination must be encouraged and exercised. One must learn to explore his/her imagination without fear of failure. Exposure to fine arts, in all its forms, awakens the imagination in all of us. Education in one or more areas of the arts teaches us to embrace our unique ideas, to actualize our dreams, to make our world a better place, even if only for a moment. In short, we learn to become one of those people who excel. Several years ago, our city’s leaders imagined an activity-filled historic downtown with a centralized location to draw the community together. Today, that dream is being fulfilled. The Averitt Center for the Arts serves as a centerpiece for a vibrant, historic downtown that is developing into a great place to live, work, shop and play.

THE EMMA KELLY THEATRE The Emma Kelly Theater offers opportunities for you to simply enjoy watching varied live performances, or for you to be involved in the creation and development of a theatrical production. Explore yourself while portraying a stage character. Develop your three-dimensional design skills or carpentry skills while working on set design. Cultivate your flair for fashion while creating costumes. Improve leadership and organizational skills by directing a production. Throughout the year, the Averitt Center offers classes, workshops, and private lessons designed to take your imagination and transform it into something amazing, creative and fulfilling.
ARTS EDUCATION Arts education isn’t about creating artists; it’s about creating whole, intelligent, imaginative human beings who are engaged in society, working to make their world a better place. It’s about training the next generation of musicians, designers, architects, electronics engineers and business leaders to excel. Won’t you support these goals in your community? Support the Averitt Center by joining the Friends of the Arts. Members enjoy discounts at area businesses, reduced rates for workshops, classes and camps, and the satisfaction of knowing they are supporting the development of imagination.

NEWS & NOTES
Powerful (& rich) College Dropouts While not exactly motivatitonal, take a look at this list TIME magazine compiled at some of the most successful people to never receive their degree. BILL GATES: The Harvard Crimson called him "Harvard's most successful dropout" — the rest of the world just calls him ridiculously rich. The son of an attorney and a schoolteacher, Gates entered Harvard in the fall of 1973, only to drop out two years later to found Microsoft with childhood friend Paul Allen. MARK ZUCKERBERG > Most college students use their dorm rooms to sleep, study, or do things their parents probably don't want to know about. Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook in his Harvard hall. According to Forbes, Zuckerberg is the youngest billionaire in the world, with a 2010 net worth of $4 billion. STEVE JOBS: The Mac, the iPod, heck, even Buzz Lightyear probably wouldn't have existed had Steve Jobs stayed in school. The future wizard of One Infinite Loop dropped out of Reed College after just six months because of the undue financial strain it placed on his working-class parents' savings. FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT: America's most celebrated architect spent more time designing colleges than attending them. Frank Lloyd Wright was admitted to the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1886, but left after only one year. JAMES CAMERON: A young Cameron enrolled in Fullerton College to study physics, but would drop out, marry a waitress and eventually become a truck driver. It was not until he saw Star Wars in 1977 that Cameron would trade his blue collar career for one creating some of the late 20th-century's most stunning (and expensive) science-fiction movies.
James L. Brooks Jr. - "I'm from Louisiana, so I really like jazz, but I'm into hip-hop too. Wayne is one of my favorites right now." Kayla Tokars - "I like Country, Indie rock, soft rock, and a lot of different things. I'm really into Jason Aldean's album My Kind of Party. Eagle Entertainment has this thing at the Starbucks on campus called Unplugged where local musicians can come play acoustic. Its Tuesdays at 7 during the semester, and there's free coffee for people.” Christopher Dorton - "I'll listen to anything as long as I can understand it. Nickleback, Pitbull, and Lifehouse are bands that I like. 11thHourOnline.com 5
Donta McMichael: “Get involved on campus. You get to know good people from different organizations. Do community service because if you complete 200 hours you get an extra seal on your deploma. I’m involved with Uinvolved. Meal plans are boring. If you want variety, go to the store and cook something for yourself. Also, if you want to get a lot done with little distraction, go to the library! It really helps to do your work there.”
Amanda Bradford: “Know about the writing center, and use it! If you take your paper there they’ll help you a lot. Get involved on campus. I’m involved with the Accounting Association and Beta Alpha Psi. Locos and Buffalos are my favorite places to go out.”
What advice would you give incoming Freshman?
Phallon Battles: “Don’t go out way too much. Sometimes you just have to say no in order to finish your homework on time. Time management is important. Start your homework right when you get home from class, then you’ll have all night to do what you want. On Fridays Rude Rudy’s is a nice time. I’m not impressed with The Grill or Platinum.”
A Beginner’s Guide to GSU and the Southern Lifestyle
Speaking of tradition, there are a few more you need to know about. If you haven’t already heard the name Erk Russell, well, you have now and you will again, and again, and again. Get ready to hear his name and see his shiny bald head depicted sporadically throughout the town. He is and always will be the face of Georgia Southern football. In 1981 Erk Russel, who was UGA’s Defensive Coordinator and appeared to be next in line for the head coach position, left UGA in order to restart the GA Southern football program here in Statesboro. After 40 years of dormancy, the football program was starting from scratch. Mr. Russell knew what to do: he allowed any student This past year, Georgia’s Former First Lady and Bulloch to come to practice County native Betty Foy Sanders presented GSU with and work the field. a portrait of legendary football coach Erk Russell as interpreted by renowned Georgia artist Steve Penley.

or those of you who are new in town there are a few things, quite frankly, that you just need to know. Most likely you are entering Statesboro with little more than a high school diploma from your dear ole’ alma mater and a list of “dos and don’ts” from those two people who claim to be your parents. Now, dear ole’ 11th hour is here to lay on you the facts; the things you actually need to know to be all you can be at GA Southern and in Statesboro in general. This is your introductory course on your new life; the life you’ve been pining for all summer. Now, I expect you all to take detailed notes. There may be a quiz. The University you’ve chosen to become a part of is extraordinary. That is the first thing you should know. Not only is it the largest center for education in the southern half of GA, but it is also the 5th largest University within the Universtiy System of Georgia. Today, Georgia Southern has nearly 20,000 students, 2,000 faculty and staff, and 114 programs of study at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels. Georgia Southern University has recently been ranked 4th most popular University in the nation. Still not impressed? Well check out this list of folks who can’t help but brag on us: • 2010 U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Colleges • 2010 U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Graduate Schools • 2010 Princeton Review 301 Best Business Schools • 2010 Forbes' America's Best Colleges • 2009 DailyBeast.com Top 25 Safest College Campuses Starting off with 4 faculty members and 15 students (in 1906) and ending up with 2,000 faculty members and 20,000 students is not an easy feat. GSU has embarked on an enormous upgrade of facilities. What does that mean? It means $300 million in new construction. Not only have we beautifully met the physical needs of the campus, we have achieved academic excellence over the past 10 years seeing the quality of students rise and continue to rise. You are now a part of this tradition, so strap up!

EDU.When it comes to cheating,Atlanta isn’t alone TINA WHITTLE Statesboro resident, and published author
“Oh look,” my friend said, “the Atlanta Public School System is featured in the latest issue of The Economist.” Normally, this would be a cool thing, but we knew it wasn’t. The title of the piece was “Low Marks All Around,” so we weren’t at all surprised to read the following lead-in: “The city’s school system has cheated its pupils. Now it must clean up the mess.” I have some serious problems with this sentence. For one, it lays the full blame for the recent cheating scandal on a nameless, faceless system. And then it lays the full responsibility for fixing the problem back on the same system. This is wishful thinking. The Atlanta Public School System is a system all right, but unlike a natural system (think photosynthesis or a solar system), it’s a business system, which can be roughly defined as a set of detailed methods for carrying out a specific activity. Such a system is a collection of human goals, motivations, responses and consequences. It is often top-down and hierarchical, not interrelated and interacting. And it may be big, impenetrable and ruthless, but it serves the purposes of the people who created and maintain it. The “system” wasn’t erasing little penciled-in circles and filling in blank circles in some clandestine cheating party (like some teachers reportedly did). The “system” didn’t make teachers with particularly low-scoring classes crawl under-

I’m resorting to barnyard metaphors, but you get the point -- learning is a cooperative endeavor. Which means we’ve got to get involved, you and me. We have to buck when the latest nonsense comes downhill at us, and we have to be able to recognize it as nonsense. We have to show up at our local school board meetings and protest loudly when our children’s interests are short-changed (which means any time that teachers themselves are stripped of their resources and support). We have to speak up, all of us, parents and citizens and especially students (I am a huge believer in getting our students involved in making their voices heard). And we have to tell elected official to their faces, screw around with education and we will throw you all back onto the street. When it comes to cheating, Atlanta isn’t alone in Georgia, and Georgia isn’t alone in the US. Pennsylvania has its own scandal already brewing. My best hope is that the next time Atlanta shows up in the national headlines, it’s to demonstrate how its citizens reworked a failing system into something that serves learning instead of steamrolling it into road kill.
Freshman 101: Cont. The school did not have a large budget so he ordered solid blue helmets and asked the players to put a white strip of tape down the middle. The uniforms consisted of plain white pants and blue jerseys without names. With following success of the Eagles, the simple design has remained unchanged. Coach Russell coined the phrase ‘one more time,” which is repeated after every kickoff. Prior to the kickoff, everyone yells "GO" and when the ball is kicked they yell "Blue! One more time!" In the end, Erk Russell won three National titles for the Eagles (1985, 1986, and 1989) and his legacy will never be forgotten in the city of Statesboro. Freshman 101: Other Cool Shit I. The Center for Wildlife Education and The Lamar Q Ball, Jr. Raptor Center is a facility located on 18 acres on the Campus.

The diverse habitats are home to several species of bird of prey including hawks, owls, falcons, kestrels, vultures. II.

POW•DUR... A salon bringing big city to the ‘Boro AMY MERRITT ecently, I have had the pleasure of stumbling upon a salon who’s atmosphere is dripping with big-city poise and style. It doesn’t take long, however, for this poise to be met with lots of down-home smiles and attitudes that speak passionately about artistic diversity and creativity. Tommy Powell, from Atlanta, along with his partner Scott Durden, from New York City, have hand crafted this salon in hopes to expose the city of Statesboro to an experience they’ve never had before. “We wanted to bring the big city to a small town. We wanted to bring modern, advanced training to expose our guests to an artistic lifestyle.” This they have done, I can vouch for that. Within just a few minutes of speaking with Mr. Powell, he asked me a question I dread most upon entering any Salon: “So, who does your hair?” he asks. My heart starts to race, my palms become sweaty, and I quickly decide if I should lie to save face, or be brutally honest and risk being smirked at and shrugged off as a low-life. “I cut my own hair, have for three years” I reply attempting to sound confident in my ability. After all, until this month I’ve been a struggling student liv-

ing off student loans and handouts from family. Plus my hair is very long, and I figure no one can really tell, right? Thankfully, I was quickly put at ease with his speedy reply, “Oh ok,” he smiles warmly to me, “So, you’re an artist.” With art always on the mind, Powell and Durden ingeniously combined their last names to create POW*DUR, and summoned Amanda Clayton, a past apprentice to Mr. Durden, to be their third and final style specialist. Together, they are a trifecta of POW*DUR magic; magic that they share with the community to better its artistic endeavors. Ms. Clayton recently donated loads of time and energy to the cast of Averitt Center for the Arts’ production of Hairspray, the musical. If you saw the show, there’s no way you could have missed the tall, eccentric 60’s hair that no “Bump-it” could have possibly achieved. “Scott and I did the hair for all three of the shows, as well as the dress rehearsal. It was quite a job” Ms. Clayton modestly explains, “We loved the way it turned out!” The POW*DUR salon’s attitude and service are not it’s only outstanding qualities. They also carry great products and merchandise to fit your needs. They now carry Karatin Complex’s New Express Blowout which is a
Brooklyn rapper Theophilus London has announced a fall tour in support of his debut LP, Timez Are Weird These Days. Before he’s through, Mr. London will open for Big Boi in Australia, fly overseas again for a couple shows in South Africa and join Friendly Fires for their North American tour. If you’re having trouble pronouncing that name, watch the video for “Last Name London.” The Tallest Man On Earth (aka
Kristian Matsson) and Idiot Wind (aka Amanda Bergman) are teaming up to score the soundtrack for an upcoming romantic drama titled Once A Year. Directed by Gorki Glaser-Müller, the film follows two lovers and their annual affair over a 30-year period. Matsson and Bergman, who frequently collaborate onstage, have seven songs written so far. The film is expected to come out sometime this year.
SCENE For those of you eager to party like it’s 1985, you’ve finally got your chance. Duran Duran is back and hitting the road for a brand new tour. This comes shortly after the band cancelled their summer tour dates to allow singer Simon Le Bon to recover from damage to his vocal chords. But they’re back now and touring in support of their Mark Ronson-produced record All You Need is Now which was released at the end of last year. Who could possibly play the role of Liberace and a Wu-Tang Clan member’s father? Cee Lo Green, that’s who. The lady killer recently revealed on his Twitter that he would be playing Raekwon’s dad in an upcoming biopic entitled C.R.E.A.M., and Green’s excitement is very apparent. “News flash: I CEELO GREEN will be playing the “FATHER” OF RAEKWON THE CHEF in his new biography on his life! NOW THAT’S HIP-HOP for ya!" Green tweeted. Raekwon told XXL that about 60 percent of the roles have been filled, and that Green is "just one out of the greats that’s gonna be on the project.” Meat Loaf is working on not one, not two, but three new albums, and one of them apparently features crunk king Lil Jon and Public Enemy’s Chuck D.
Meat Loaf met Lil Jon after they both appeared on Celebrity Apprentice, while Meat Loaf’s son-in-law, Scott Ian of Anthrax, introduced him to Chuck D. Both will appear on Hell In A Handbasket, which is due out in February. If you were just itching to stage your own Beastie Boy adventures after seeing the Spike Jonze-directed video for “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win,” never fear! You can now buy the action figure versions of MCA, Mike D, and Ad-Rock on the group’s website. The 11.5" tall dolls will cost you a whopping $750, but the boys assure you that they are “not trying to take you for all your Mozarell.” The proceeds will go to the Pablove Foundation and Alex’s Lemonade Stand, two charity organizations that help children with cancer. While supplies last, the action figures will also come with a two-disc deluxe version of the Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science, which features an 88-page fullcolor book with photos and lyrics.
