This string-band trio was such a hit when they performed at the PAC two years ago that audiences clamored to have them return.

Many of the same dancers and the same choreographer from the television series make up this stage performance complete with amazing costumes, sets, and lighting.

We Like The things making our world just a little bit better | by brad evans Deer Hunting. To the dismay of my wife, I caught deer fever really early this year, and went out and got myself way too much gun in the 300 Winchester Magnum. To balance that out I also got a Matthews Ovation Compound Bow, and a 7-foot tall hand carved Self Bow, just like our ancestors used.

The Youtube Video sent to me by my friend Bill Arnold made my week. Now affectionately known as “Bed Intruder” it almost made me fall out of my chair laughing. The clip shows an aggravated family in the projects of Huntsville, Alabama having just thwarted an attempted rape. Not funny subject matter, but trust me on this one. The news clip has now been turned an auto-tuned up song that may be funnier than the original. Half a million hits and counting. It must be nice to be viral.

The Kindle is old news, but Meg’s had her nose stuck in that Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series for weeks now, robbing me of all my periodical reading. Both of us are pretty sure True Blood has jumped the shark but are getting ready for the world of bloody mary’s and sexual harrasement that Mad Men is. And I can’t stop listening to Jay-Z and Eminem, mainly because I need to brush up before my trip to Yankee Stadium to see the pair perform.

BY CARSON GREER s always, this weekend I had a blast at Millhouse. I went with my new roommate, Amber, and met some new and old friends there. So it rained on and off the entire time we were there, but did that stop us, of course not! I met a friend of mine who has now graduated at the Millhouse and it was great seeing her for the first time in a while. A typical night at Millhouse used to involve running into at least a dozen people that I know, but I will have to say that this time, there were many faces that I had never seen before. It may take some getting use to, but it is plain to see that all of the incoming students are here. After Millhouse it was time for the plaza. We went to Retrievers where I also ran into a couple of unexpected people. Can we just say, blast from the past! There was no band but the DJ at Retrievers was cranking out oldies like “What’s Your Fantasy” and more. We definitely had a blast “rapping” along and dancing to every song. Needless to say, we stayed until last call and closing time. Once the fun was over, it was time to go home. So what did we do, hop on the most happening bus ride ever, The Blue Goose! If you have not yet ridden the Blue Goose, you definitely should sometime soon. It’s a $3 safe ride home that pretty much feels like a club on wheels. I have ridden the Blue Goose in many different states of mind, but it never fails to be a wild ride. I can definitely say that after this weekend, I got some fun out of my system before school starts. It’s time to buckle down and get things in order. I wish everyone the best first week back to school, I look forward to seeing you out and about again for the first official weekend back in town.

Just a few helpful tips from a fellow Eagle on surviving the ‘College Experience’



tarting college can be a very challenging experience for most people. Some of us have completely left home and are on our own to figure out the ways of the world. No longer do we have a hand to hold or parents telling us yes and no. At such a pivotal moment in our lives, a little advice on how to get by would be helpful, don’t you think? Over the years, I have learned a few things the hard way that would have been helpful to know going into this whole college experience. I would like to share some of my knowledge and advice about getting into the college routine, how to use your resources, and just a few pointers to make things a little easier on you (and perhaps on your parents too). My first piece of advice, if you have HOPE keep it. HOPE Scholarship is something that as a resident of Georgia is a privilege to have. I had HOPE coming into school, and because of a few dumb decisions I lost it after only one year into college. A few simple ways to make better grades and keep HOPE are go to class, go to class, and go to class. Now that going to class is an option, choosing not to go can seem very appealing. However, it pays in more ways than one to just get out of bed and go. All professors are aware that you have been given an option and expect a good number of students to opt out of attendance. This being said, a lot of them tend to reward those who do come to class by giving pop quizzes or in class assignments for extra points towards your grade. Also, going to class gives your professors a more respectful view of you because it shows that you are a responsible student and care about your 4 AUGUST 4 - 17, 2010

grades as well as their class. My second piece of advice concerns getting to know your campus before the first day of class. It is a wise thing to do to be familiar with the campus and locations of classes prior to the first day. There is a printable map of the entire campus on the Georgia Southern website and a hard copy of the same map in Russell Union that may be of some help to you when exploring the GSU campus. There are instances when you have a 15-minute gap in between classes and miles of campus separating the two. For example, if you have two classes back to back that may happen to be on opposite ends of campus, it would be a good thing to take note of so that you can plan your route accordingly. I’ll let you in on a secret about this campus. It really isn’t all that big and there are a ton of short cuts that may make getting to class on time much more possible. So, by getting to know the location of your classes ahead of time, you can map out the best route to take for those days when you are in a serious time crunch. Without sounding too much like a broken record, I have one last piece of advice for all of you who are beginning college. The library will become your new social scene. Upon entering college, I thought I was too cool to go to the library. Boy, was I wrong. Once I started going, I actually began getting much more studying done, and it turned out I wasn’t missing too much of my social time because everyone else I knew was there too. Now with this being said, I don’t advise you to go simply for social purposes because being in a library around noisy people can get somewhat annoying…fast. My advice to you is to just go, no matter how lame you think the library is you’ll be surprised how much you can actually accomplish once you do finally go.


11. Go To Class On Time This may seem obvious, but for some reason it’s been hard to do. 10. Read a Book In today’s career-world, writing is essential. Heighten your vocabulary and writing skills by reading a non-required book. 9. Introduce yourself to ALL of your teachers. Networking with your teachers is important to gain references and recommendations in the future. Building a relationship with them might just give you that extra push at the end of the year. 8. Start a Savings Account The real world is real. Having a backup form of income will help you become financially stable when you finally graduate college 7. Be organized Being organized can raise your GPA at least 10%, and also helps you relieve stress. 6. Get Involved Getting involved is a great way to network and gain leadership skills. 5. Party! There is nothing wrong with having a good time if it is done in moderation. Just get your work done first. 4. Look for a job before you graduate Don’t wait until you get your degree to look for a job. Search as soon as possible. Apply for an intern or a co-op to get your foot in the door and gain experience. 3. Yell Georgia Southern!! Just because. 2. Study! This seems to be a hard concept to dissolve, but you have to study to do well. This is a competitive world, so the more you know, the more success you will have. 1. Read the 11th Hour Newspaper! Mind our Shameless Plug! Read the newspaper to receive news and updates for your school and community. It is the most complete guide to what is going on in Statesboro, from live music to bar and drink specials. First Friday events to art openings and more! • FREE CONSULTATION

BEST LAWYER IN STATESBORO 11th Hour Readers’ Choice! 5

4 AUGUST 4 - 17, 2010


Enjoy the Nightlife...


Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls of legal ages, welcome (back) to the circus of Statesboro nightlife! Any single place or a combination of these below will lead to many of your next unforgettable (yet hard to recall) nights. Here I have created a list, a map to your night on the town, of the bars in Statesboro. The Rusty Tavern- Home of the glory that was the former Ladies Lockup and the Wooden Nickel, music on the back porch and booty shakin’ in the front, the Rusty Tavern is one of the oldest originals on the block.

KBOB Kelly’s- Hosting Statesboro’s most popular Trivia and Karaoke nights. A perfect place to hang with friends without the distractions of loud music, but with great drink specials. Rude Rudy’s- If you’re looking to get down on the dance floor, Rude Rudy’s is the best place to go because they have a huge open dance floor and a DJ that plays all of today’s hottest pop and rap music. On Martini Monday nights, $3 dollar martinis are where it’s at.

Retriever’s- Retrievers is home to football, beer, and wings. Ladies, if you are looking for a bar with no cover, Retrievers has got you “covered” on Wild Wednesdays. Retrievers Sports Bar is also a great place to go on football weekends. They open at 12 on Saturdays and keep happy hour going until 8 PM. Rumrunners and The Plantation Room (aka The New Bar)Although these two bars often get grouped together- they have two very different vibes to them. At Rumrunners, their slushy drinks spin on the wall and the place looks like it’s jammed full with 70 people. A few steps in, RR expands into The Plantation Room. Crystal chandeliers, drinks served in Mason jars, framed Dixie flags and white columns. Dos Primos- You don’t have to go to El Som when you want to get crazy with tequila! Lots of live music, trivia night and what my friend once called “The most classic of all….a $2 dollar beer”. A short walk from the stadium, it’s a game day favorite.

Dingus Magee’s- Serving up plenty of beer and classic bar food since 1979, Dingus is a signature landmark in Statesboro. Dingus has specials on beer and wings every Monday. If you go Greek, this will be your regular hang-out.



riving under the influence of alcohol is against the law; however it is the most commonly broken law in Statesboro. In fact the most commonly broken laws in this town are all alcohol and drug related, and they all come with hefty consequences. Some may find that this is a relief, compared to other cities where murder and theft are the leading crimes, but it is a disgrace that our residents do not know better than to obey the law. It is not because people don’t know the law that they disobey the rules either. Commercials, road sign and radio advertisements are constantly bombarding the public with the consequences for driving under the influence or using drugs, yet the fact still remains that DUI’s top the charts for the most commonly broken law. “Frankly, most people just tend to underestimate how impaired they actually are at the time,” said Attorney Lovett Bennet, a lawyer who represents many students in Statesboro who have been charged with a DUI. “It is always interesting for me to ask my clients how they felt at the time they were stopped (usually they say "fine" or "perfectly in control"), then to let them see themselves on the arresting officer's videotape. Usually, they are astonished at how different they actually sounded and looked in comparison to how they thought they sounded and looked,” he said. With all of the public knowledge on driving under the influence it’s a wonder why people still get behind the wheel without thinking of what could happen first. There are some laws however that are broken by people who don’t even know what they are doing is illegal. Such as using or possessing prescription drugs without a prescription, or having an open container. “When a client's friend offers them a pill, such as Adderrall, to help him or her stay awake and study for an exam, it is actually a felony to possess a pill, like Adderrall, without a prescription,” said Bennett. Possession of even one pill without a prescription is punishable by several years in jail and more than $1,000 in fines. Unbeknownst to many of Statesboro residents, open container laws don’t just apply to being in a vehicle. Unlike in Savannah, where carrying around an alcoholic beverage is acceptable, Statesboro has a much different set of rules. Not knowing the rules could be detrimental to your record. According to Statesboro’s Municipal Code, the first offense of a person in possession of an open container can lead to a fine as high as $150. Do it a second time and the fine could go as high as $250. On the third offense, the fine could double to have a charge of up to $500. Patrons in restaurants with an authorized outdoor seating area are immune to the open container charge, but taking a single step off of that deck, porch or patio could be a costly one.

Silver Creek SaloonA skip and a jump from downtown Statesboro, it’s a great place to escape the usual. Happily considered a ‘country bar’ with great service, live music on the weekends and a large dance floor. Manny’s Sports BarWinner of the 11th Hour’s Readers’ Choice Awards for ‘Best Sports Bar’ over the past 2 years, Manny’s is filled with large screen t.v’s for all your sporting pleasures. Great food and drink specials daily. Buffalo’s Southwest CafeYes, it’s a restaurant, but they also bring some of the best music to the ‘Boro stage.

Curious what applies? Here’s how the code reads: “It shall be unlawful for any person to have in his or her possession any alcoholic beverages in any open container while on the public streets, sidewalks or rights-ofway, or in any public or semipublic parking facility within the city” (Section 6-241, Statesboro Municipal Code). Roughly translated, that means there’s a chance to be cited walked to a friend’s house just a few doors down the street, walking through your apartment complex’s parking lot or even sunbathing at the pool with a beverage nearby. Last but not least, it’s never a good idea to possess an open container inside of a vehicle. Most would consider this a common sense kind of a rule, but if that half of a bottle of wine left over from the dinner party is anywhere accessible to a driver of any vehicle its considered to be an open container. Place already opened bottles (this includes re-corked or cap-on containers) in a locked glove compartment, locked trunk or any other locked non-passenger area. Whether the vehicle is underway or not is not an issue – if a driver’s inside with an open container, that’s breaking the law. No one is perfect, mistakes happen, but when everyone is educated on the consequences that come along with breaking the law there is no excuse. If the damage has already been done it’s a smart decision to be represented in court. An experienced attorney can assist you in defending yourself and keeping your criminal record clean – or at least as clean as it can be despite litigation.

DUI: Cold Hard Facts

The legal limit to drive: • Under 21year is 0.02 percent – The equivalent of 1 drink • Over 21, the limit is .08 percent – The equivalent of 3 or 4 drinks

119 Chops- A beautiful restaurant in downtown Statesboro, they have a great seating area around their bar making it a nice place to get a drink when you want to get away from flashing lights and loud music. A fancy place like this won’t set you back too much either. From 5-7 PM Wed- Sat they have 1/2 off a glass of wine, beer, and wells drinks. Also, every Wednesday, 119 Chops has a special on bottles of wine for $10.

The Millhouse- One of the most notable things about the Millhouse is the awesome seating they have around the bar. Three garage doors roll up and out to the huge deck where bands play regularly. The drinks are good too, especially on $3 call night. Also, on Saturday nights at the Millhouse, a DJ provides music and lights to turn the entire bar area becomes a huge dance party!

Christopher’s- If a Rum and Coke isn’t the drink you’re looking for tonight, be sure to head over and have one of their bartenders make you an amazing drink with fresh fruit and fruit juices. They also have a wide selection of wine and beer for your sipping pleasure. Christopher’s is also one of the more upscale restaurants in town but they do have drink specials throughout the week. If you’re looking for gourmet sushi, every Wednesday night at Christopher’s the chefs are serving up rolls from their very own unique sushi menu.

Penalties for 1st DUI Offense: • Suspension of driver's license for six to twelve months • $1,000 or more in fines • 40 or more hours of community service 5

To Anyone Who Claims Same-Sex Marriage will...



nless you were in a cave or something, I’m sure you noticed that California’s Proposition 8 got overturned last Wednesday, which reversed a previous ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional. An appeal has since been filed and a stay issued — the matter will probably end up before the Supreme Court for the final verdict. Overturning Prop 8 was a cause for celebration for many people, including yours truly. On a purely patriotic level, I was glad to see the Constitutional rights of every American fortified. I’m heartened that the phrase “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” still means something in this country. The struggle for equality has been fought on schoolhouse steps, at segregated lunch counters, and under glass ceilings. It started with the first Yankee Doodle dandy who dared to spit at King George, and it continues now. Of course not everyone was happy. Some people had legitimate concerns about the legislative branch overstepping the will of the people. But most of the unhappy people had far less intelligent complaints. Judge Vaughn R. Walker — a federal judge appointed by President George Bush himself — dismissed them one by one, including that no-proof-whatsoever assertion that same-sex marriage is bad for children. No evidence, he said. Zip. Nada. Zilch. I’m also tired of hearing the sad lament that allowing same-sex marriage will somehow weaken mixed-sex marriage, or as it is often called, traditional marriage. These arguments do have one thing right — any marriage based on love and equality

steps all over traditional marriage. Face it, marriage as we know it — that loveydovey snuggle fest celebrated on Valentine’s Day and in diamond advertisements — is a recent invention. If you examine history, traditional marriage looks nothing like that “one man plus one woman” deal that the Defense of Marriage Act keeps touting. Instead, it looks very much like one guy and as many wives and concubines as he could stuff into his tent. Back then, marriage was little more than a land deal with benefits. Romantic love was not considered essential. Traditional marriage was a business contract between the heads of the respective families, and it was about as amorous as oatmeal. It was forged in the crucible of feudal terrorism, and for most of human history, it included such brutal practices as kidnapping, slavery, and the selling of young girls not even in their teens. Women had no say, no voice, no rights, and no recourse. They were considered property, like the dog or the dresser, and that was that. Children fared even worse. So that’s traditional marriage — contracts, polygamy, and human beings as chattel. Anybody care to defend that? To anyone claiming that same-sex marriage will destroy the sanctity of mixedsex marriage, I say look around — we heterosexuals have managed to muck it up without anyone‘s help.

corrupt this “sacred” institution? Please. Somebody open the barn door and put that “sacred” cow out to pasture. People have a hard time getting over the idea that just because something has been a certain way for as long as they remember it, it should stay that way forever. Defining marriage according to such archaic standards makes no sense. I firmly believe the government should have no say in marriage anyway. If it is indeed a sacred covenant, then Uncle Sam needs to get his filthy paws off it. Call it whatever you will for legal purposes — civil unions, domestic partnerships, whatever. Make it accessible to every grown American, and make every one of the 1,138 governmental and legal protections/benefits currently associated with it available as well. Let marriage remain where it belongs — a consecrated space for two people to pledge their

love and affection before the eyes of God or Goddess or even just their friends and family.

Separation of church and state should start here. Couples of all stripes could have a legal partnership in the courthouse — complete with all the benefits the government has to offer — or they could have a personal wedding in their community house of worship. Or they could have both; I keep hearing this is a free country, after all.

Here’s what I say — let churches and ministers decide what marriage is, each according to the tenets of their faith. Let Uncle Sam manage the paperwork of partnership. That should give certain legislators and their misguided constituents something to do besides tamper with the Constitution.

‘Craiglist Killer’ Offs Himself

Philip Markoff, the accused "Craigslist killer," scrawled his ex-fiancee's name in blood on the wall of his cell before killing himself, according to several law enforcement officials with knowledge of the case. Near the word "Megan" he also wrote the word "pocket," which had no immediate significance to investigators. Markoff and his fiancee, Megan McAllister, had intended to marry Aug. 14, 2009 -- a year and a day before his body was found in his jail cell. The Nashua Street Jail where Markoff was being held, said there were no recent warning signs that the 24-year-old former medical student would try to kill himself. Markoff was scheduled to go on trial in March for allegedly killing 25-year-old masseuse Julissa Brisman in April 2009 at a luxurious Back Bay hotel, a woman authorities say he met through the Craigslist website.

Best Colleges 2011

US News and World Report has again ranked Harvard as the best national university, the Associated Press reported yesterday. Report annual best colleges list ranks 262 national universities, 266 liberal arts colleges, and 179 northern regional universities. Altogether, 1,477

schools were ranked. The judgments are based on factors including class size and alumni satisfaction. Top southern universities included Nashville’s Vanderbilt at number 17, Emory at number 20 and UNC-Chapel Hill at number 30. Georgia Southern is listed as a Tier 2 School and did not rank.

Beware of fake Facebook 'dislike' button

Lots of people think the Internet is a bit too chipper -- so much so that they've clamored for a "dislike" button on Facebook, which, to date, only officially allows people to "like" content on its site. Now, some social-media spoilers are trying to turn the public's desire for that dislike button into a scam, according to a security researcher. Graham Cluley, a senior technology consultant at the British security firm Sophos, wrote in a blog post on Monday that fake dislike buttons are going viral on Facebook. Watch out for posts that look like

this, he says: "I just got the Dislike button, so now I can dislike all of your dumb posts lol!!" That statement on Facebook is typically followed with a link, Cluley writes, that takes people to a fake Facebook application. Instead of installing a dislike button, Cluley says, the application uses a person's social network to continue spreading the fake program. "It's the latest survey scam spreading virally across Facebook, using the triedand-tested formula used in the past by other viral scams including 'Justin Bieber trying to flirt,' 'Student attacked his teacher and nearly killed him,' 'the biggest and scariest snake' and the 'world's worst McDonald's customer,' " he says. Typically, such schemes are designed to steal information from Internet users. That information then can be sold to other parties. The scams also can be used to co-opt an Internet user's social network contacts.

Shaquan Duley is facing two counts of murder in the deaths of her sons, ages 1 and 2, said Orangeburg County Sheriff Larry Williams. She is set to appear in court Wednesday.

South Carolina Woman Drowns her two Toddlers

Fantasia back

(CNN) -- Unemployed, single and apparently fed up with criticism from her mother, a 29-year-old Orangeburg, South Carolina, woman suffocated her two toddlers with her bare hands before strapping them into car seats and submerging her car in a river, authorities said Tuesday.


Mel Gibson Crashes Car

(CNN) -- Mel Gibson crashed his 2008 Maserati into a rocky Malibu hillside Sunday night, but the actor was unhurt, according to a California Highway Patrol spokesman. Alcohol is not suspected in the wreck on Malibu Canyon Road, which the investigator concluded was "non-intentional," CHP Officer Leland Tang said. Gibson, who is in a bitter child custody dispute with his ex-girlfriend, is the target of celeb photographers. Gibson publicist Alan Nierob, asked if the paparazzi might have been a factor in the accident, said, "Not that I'm aware of." It’s no secret that she’s been having a rough time as of late, but Fantasia Barrino is trying to sort herself out and wants to focus on her music career. The “American Idol” alum, who was hospitalized for attempted suicide, can’t wait to begin promoting her upcoming album later this month.

which they construct their Brit-rock songs; drummer Jonny Quinn mentioned in a recent interview that the band writes their tunes all over the place, from the beach to the tour bus, dressing rooms to the recording studio itself - and also in phone booths, since "no one is using them anymore" due to the mobile phone craze. With all that songcraft going on, it's no wonder Snow Patrol are prepping to record their new album, for which they'll enter the studio in October; the album is slated to drop sometime in the first quarter of next year... Richard Ashcroft's new album - which will be released under the name United Nations of Sound - was recorded in NYC, L.A., and London with Jay-Z producer No ID, and hits stores this week. The set will include songs "Are You Ready?" "This Thing Called Life," "Beatitudes," "Royal Highness," and "Glory," and will also include contributions from musicians Steve Wyreman (guitars), Paul Wright (bass), and Derrick Wright (drums)... Sebadoh/Dinosaur Jr. member Lou Barlow, who has recently been touring with Tom Watson and Raul Morales as "the missingmen," has released Sentridoh III, an EP that's being pitched as an "almost live" representation of the trio's live show. The disc includes new versions of tunes from Barlow's solo albums, a cover of "I'm So Glad" by Skip James, and the original tune "Losercore." Barlow/the band will continue touring the rest of this summer, with shows in Washington DC (8/18), Nashville (8/21), Minneapolis (8/25), Chicago (8/26), Toronto (8/28), and Philly (9/3)..

Piercings by Jules at Smiling Buddha Tattoo BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT


miling Buddha is often neglected due to its location. However, it is right around the corner from the Garden District across from the fair grounds.The shop also is not known for their piercing because the owner decided to not rehire after the last piercer left three years ago. That last piercer was Julie, who also worked the Smiling Buddha in Savannah due to her attendance at Savannah College of Art and Design for her BFA in Metals and Jewelry. After Smiling Buddha, Julie went to work for Planet Three in Savannah. In her three years at Planet Three the importance of proper jewelry was brought to her attention by the senior piercer that was watching over her before she was to take his place after his relocation. A year after she had been piercing, she began attending the annual Association of Professional Piercers Conference. This conference is a cesspool for piercing information between taking classes on safety, technique and anatomy (taught by actual doctors and dentists) along with sharing info with other piercers from around the world. This conference is expensive due to the APP being a non-profit organization, but most piercers do their best to save over the year just so they can go. The hours are long and the income can be less than the cost of living for one person. Most piercers that last more than a few years are typically banded to the profession out of interest and responsibility. You will always have a shop with an un-experienced piercer down the road which will sometimes scare people away from piercing all together or the other piercers have to face very challenging situation when aiding a client. Only so much help can be offered until it can enter a doctor’s jurisdiction. When this happens all piercers get a bad rap with physicians, which can prove troublesome when doctors are trained in healing and not healing tissue around jewelry. Piercings should never be treated like a wound unless they are actually infected, which are actually pretty uncommon. Most people panic and assume an infection when there is only irritation causing the piercing to misbehave. That is why there should always be a relationship between the piercer and the piercee so no one feels like they can’t come in for help. That should be what a professional piercer strives for with their clients. Over the past five years of Julie’s piercing experience she has had to face poorly done piericngs and comforting abused clients but she has also spent a lot of outside time getting pierced just to be able to accurately describe the experience to a nervous client. When seeking out a piercer for herself she always relies on where APP members can be found. A lot of techniques she picked up came from being pierced by people that she admired and respected. In her attendance to the APP conference she has taken the following classes: Initial Piercing Jewelry: Materials, Initial Piercing Jewelry Size and Style, Anatomy: Body, Anatomy Oral & Facial, Grounding, Surface Piercing, Medical Risk Assessment & Troubleshooting, Wound Care, Surface Anchors, Precious Metals and Gemstones, Aftercare Basics, Male Genital Piercing Basics, Bedside Manner, Aesthetics of Body Piercing, Steel and Titanium, Troubleshooting, Technique: Female Genital and Nipple, Piercing Documentation, Employee Manual, Glass, and Technique: Nostril, Navel, Lip. This is not including

Some advice from Jules, “If you don't choose to come to Smiling Buddha, always look out for yourself when going into any shop. Check out portfolios, ask to see spore tests for the autoclave and never let anything touch you that hasn't been opened from a sterile package IN FRONT OF YOU. Happy hole poking!

Price shopping for a piercing is like searching out the cheapest surgeon. Just like a tattoo, you want your piercing to be done properly and with the right jewelry so there are no complications later. classes taken in 2010. Now, Julie is an Anthropology major and she also researches the history of piercing and how the industry has progressed. Some places have not progressed at all and, luckily some have and update the cleanliness of their shop and the quality of their jewelry. Julie tries to keep her prices low and also offers piercing specials and price cuts for returning customers. This is a true challenge considering most shops use mass produced pieces made over seas and charge $25 for something that cost them less than a dollar. These pieces have threads on the bar and not the bead that can cause tissue damage when inserted or removed. This type of jewelry is referred to as externally threaded and typically contains a great deal of nickel. All the jewelry carried at Smiling Buddha is Implant Hospital Grade Internally Threaded Jewelry. It costs more to get because it is of higher quality yet the pieces are barely marked above wholesale just so people won’t gawk at the prices. Brands we carry include Body Vision Los Angels, Anatometal, Industrial Strength, Maya Organic, Evolve, and Kaos. This is also why daily piercing specials are always offered and the prices are kept more than fair. A lot of people price shop when they are looking to get pierced. Price shopping for a piercing is like searching out the cheapest surgeon. Just like a tattoo, you want your piercing to be done properly and with the right jewelry so there are no complications later. Permanent damage can be done if someone is not properly trained in these aspects. When surface anchors were first introduced into the industry, almost every piercer thought just because they knew how to pierce that they would know how to perform the insertion of surface anchors. Julie has three years of specializing in performing surface anchors and has a blast making custom designs for people. Smiling Buddha has switched all their jewelry to internal threads and also now has a large selection in organic jewelry as well as silicone eyelets. Trying to keep every jewelry option possible stocked is expensive when making such a big change so special orders are always welcome and very reasonable in cost. Hopefully this information has intrigued and educated as it was intended and everyone will come see Jules do her things at Smiling Buddha. Have any piercing questions? Email Jules directly at

First of all, everyone be sure to lock your apartments, houses and vehicles when you leave, and if possible, have a friend keep an eye on them for you. Every year the beginning of fall semester marks a rash of late nights, as well as a rash of break-ins, and this year is no different as many burglaries were reported over the weekend, all over campus and the rest of the Boro. Thieves walked off with new TV’s game systems, computers and all kinds of other expensive toys last week from the homes and cars of students and townies alike, but particularly from campus apartments late at night, when many of the residents are down at the bar. So be careful, and keep an eye out for each other. Surprise, surprise, the first weekend of the new semester lead to a number of young people arrested for being drunk. Who would have figured? Police were called to Cambridge on Aug. 14 in response to a young man lying in the grass. Police found the 18-year-old conscious, but so drunk that he was unable to speak. He was transported to the hospital and charged with underage possession of alcohol. Later that night, or technically Sunday morning since it was 1 a.m., police were called to the Parker’s on campus when an

employee caught a 20-year-old man who cracked open a beer in the store and started drinking it. When he offered to pay for the beer, the clerk pointed out that he was under 21 and it was past midnight. The man was arrested. People will get into a fight anywhere. As proof, police were called to Barnes Mortuary on Aug. 14 and arrived to discover a large group of people fighting outside, so large that they were unable to ascertain what really happened since there were so many differing accounts. Ultimately, two women were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, and one of the witnesses was arrested for an open warrant for deposit account fraud. A couple took their vehicle into Franklin Toyota to be fixed. While their car was in the shop, Franklin Toyota allowed the couple to drive a Rav4. However, they had to call the police on Aug. 14 to report that, despite calling the couple since Aug. 10 to return the Rav4, the couple had still not returned it. I can see the joy in ‘joy ride’, but I can’t make sense of someone stealing a number of items from DEA Supply Co., including a generator, nail gun, copper tubing, a drill, saws and other tools – and a Tony’s deep dish frozen pizza. 13

SAGITARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): Sagittarius is warm and friendly. You like to talk a great deal making it difficult for others to get a word in edgewise. There is a lot of trouble around this week but you are not included. In fact, somehow you could even benefit from it all. A small gamble could pay off for you at the beginning of this week. Friends agree with you now and will support your ideas and plans for the next two weeks. This is a good time to get your paperwork and correspondence finished up and out of the way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Gemini is versatile, fickle, intelligent, creative, quick, neat, and curious. A small gamble could pay off the first part of this week but do not over indulge. You need to keep to your tight budget. Any excess money should be salted away directly into a savings account. Other people still have you running errands for them and it looks as though this continues for the next few months. You can receive help with your plans and ideas if you just simply ask.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): Capricorn is very often politically minded. Capricorn is also patient, reserved, cautious, faithful and shrewd. You may find yourself spending money this week on an unexpected â&#x20AC;&#x153;findâ&#x20AC;?. Perhaps it is a new home or business or at least fixing up what you have. Or it could even be that someone has run into trouble and you may be able to step into a bargain. Be wary of fires at the beginning of this week. Whatever you do now seems to turn out well as long as it is not a gamble of sorts.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): Aquarius has a strong will, and is inventive, and will always enjoy doing the unexpected, but you can be self centered. Please be cautious of fires at the beginning of this week. This could be a time of trouble and things can get out of control. Keep your temper. Do not say things you do not really mean even if someone else starts it all. Do not speed as this is the time you would be caught and be the recipient of a very expensive ticket. Take no chances this week - as it is simply not the time for it.

LEO (July 23-August 22): Leo is colorful, self assured, outgoing, impulsive and expansive. You have a great deal of energy now but it seems to be misdirected. You are scattering your energies as you try to go in too many directions. Concentrate on one thing at a time. Hold back on your impulses now as you could move in the wrong direction. All this excess energy could also cause you accidents. Caution is necessary in everything that you do.



SCORPIO (October 23-Nov 21): You are very intense, strong willed, determined and secretive. You can be willful and sarcastic, but a deep thinker with a fine mind. You need to keep a tight control on your temper this week since things have been building up and you are ready to blow off some steam. You are very accident prone this week so keep your attention on what you are doing. If you do not start the trouble, someone else will trigger the â&#x20AC;&#x153;eventâ&#x20AC;?! Maybe you should just stay at home and relax with a couple of good books.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You are practical, peace loving, stubborn, and deliberate. Taurus has a natural interest in money, and you like the finer things in life. If you have not yet found your new business or home, keep looking - they are out there. By the first of next month you might find what you want. Meanwhile it is a good idea to shop and see what is out there so you will be satisfied with what you find the end of this month or the first of next month. Your sense of timing is great this month. You are easily irritated now so beware of blowing things out of proportion.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cancer is sentimental, sensitive, and needs to have a sense of security. Cancer is intensely romantic and has a vivid imagination. Some type of celebration is costing you this week but you are spending your money with a good heart as it is for a good cause. This month you feel as if you are in charge of your life and destiny. This is an excellent week to attack and settle any personal problems that have been bothering you lately. You are more daring than usual this month.

LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22): Libra is artistic, musical, level headed, sympathetic, and generous. You can be gossipy, critical, and bitter. Be prepared as an unexpected expense could hit you this week. Hopefully you heeded an earlier warning and took steps to save for it. This is not a time for large purchases since you will not be satisfied as there will be something wrong. Be patient and hold off for a month or so. Invitations should come in galore this week asking you to visit with friends or relatives at a distance.

You will say things without thinking. You can be arrogant, presumptuous, and your own interests will come first. You are thinking of the future now and how you should invest your funds for the largest return. You want to increase your resources so you can insure your prospects for a later time. Toward the end of this week you will begin to come up with some good ideas. Your partner will help you. Hopefully you will choose a slow, sure method and not gamble on something where you could lose it all.

ARIES (March 21-April 19):





PISCES (Feb 19-March 20): You are emotional, easy going, artistic and sociable, Pisces will see only the good in others, but you can often be self-centered. There is trouble all around this week but thankfully you are well out of it. Your timing is right â&#x20AC;&#x2122;on the markâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; now so you may be at the right place at the right time to do a good deed for someone. No good deed goes unnoticed. Some direct action on your part is called for and this month you are just the person to take that action.

VIRGO (August 23-Sept 22): Virgo is intellectual, critical, fussy, and shy and needs constant reassurance.Careful research is your best move right now since that is how you will find your answers. This is a good time to put yourself in a position to meet new people. Get out and about! Beneficial friendships could be formed. Your credit standing and your place in your community are improved even if you do nothing to encourage either one.
