Hot n’ Cole makes a snazzy tribute Suave Licklog show mixes music, comedy

This is more a belated Valentine to The Licklog Players cast and crew of Hot N’ Cole than a true review. When you take into account what these volunteers went through in the past six weeks to put on this performance, they are heroes. It’s rained, sleeted, snowed, iced over and repeated that for weeks now. Most of us have been in our cozy, warm home at night, but these dedicated performers, musicians and stage crew went to rehearsals like venerable postal workers, “Through rain, sleet or snow, the show must go on…” Forgive my taking liberty with that old adage. Besides, writing a review on the Cole Porter musical presented by the Licklog Players at the Peacock Playhouse this weekend is anticlimactic. How can you nitpick one of the greatest ONLINE American mut4FFFYDMVTJWF sic writer’s work? You can’t; but I video clips from the show can tell you about those who pret4FFEP[FOTPG sented this winter pictures only at warm-up for our Facebook.com/ five county area. NewsSentinel First of all, if you’re familiar with the Licklog Players’ reputation and its season performances, by now you know the exceptional work of Guest Director Laurel Adams. In 2009 she directed I Do! I Do! and Two Into One, both of which left audiences happy and wanting more. Her interpretation of this tribute to Cole Porter has her usual light but tight touches: a strong, yet flexible set, simple yet appropriate choreography that fits the music, and minimal props that provide major effects. Add the musical expertise of pianists Carol Smucker and Suzanne Major, and the recipe is delicious. They always get it right. Enter the performers. Keith Christensen and wife, Suzy, veteran performers here and in Florida community theaters, bring confidence and experience to the stage. No matter how weary and exhausted Suzy was, she hit the notes and danced every step like the super

Dr. Jane Goodall, world renowned naturalist and environmental activist, spoke to a sell-out crowd Thursday, February 18, at Clegg Auditorium, Young Harris College. Students, faculty and hundreds of folks from the area listened attentively as she discussed her career observing chimpanzees, the people who had inspired her, and her work in conservation and with the youth organization, Roots and Shoots. Members of the YHC chapter of Roots and Shoots assisted the speaker in the evening's presentation. The title of her talk, "Gombe 50: Celebrating Dr. Jane Goodall's Extraordinary Legacy," acknowledged the golden anniversary of her work in Gombe National Park in Tanzania, Africa. She began her work there in 1960 and is still involved now in 2010. Dr. GoodHarrison Keely/ Sentinel Photo all travels 300 days per year giving Bob Miller tours France with Suzy Christensen and Janice Minette. talks and has received numerous honors for her work, including the post of United Nations Messenger for Peace, Ghandi/King Award for Non-Violence, the Legion of Honor in France and a Dame of the British Empire in the United Kingdom. Goodall's comparison of humans and chimpanzees easily captured the audience's attention. "There is no sharp line dividing us from chimpanzees -- it's a very blurry line indeed. We are not the only beings with thoughts and feelings," she declared. The speaker gave examples of such likeness by describing close relationships in chimpanzee families and groups, deep maternal love for chimpanzee mothers for their offspring (young ones stay with their mothers for four years!), and examples of altruism and sacrifice of one chimpanzee for another.

Sentinel Newspapers February 24, 2010

for gardners Maybe spring fever is getting to you, or perhaps you cannot tell a valuable native plant from a weed. Help is available. The Preservation Committee of the Community Council will kick off the 2010 season with its Volunteer Orientation on March 1st at 10 A.M., in the auditorium of the Georgia Mountain Research & Education Center. The Orientation will be a great time to meet like-minded folks, learn more about the native plants of this area and maybe even enjoy a snack. The Orientation will provide an introduction to the Preservation Commit-

tee and its projects, and a short lesson on the various natural regions of north Georgia and western North Carolina. This group of volunteers meets twice a month during spring, summer and fall to help maintain the native plant gardens at the GMRE Center. In the Ethnobotanic Garden, we prune, pull a lot of weeds, and mulch the garden beds, and we do general trail maintenance along the shady Woodland Medicine Trail. In the past season have transformed an old cannery into an interpretive center and have begun work on restoring an old spring area. We are

very informal, some work for an hour or two, some of us work longer. We share the work and learn a lot about plants, birds and anything else that lives in our gardens and in the southern Appalachians. Enthusiasm for plants is more important than extensive horticultural knowledge. We will begin gardening in earnest on March 15 at 9 A.M. in the garden. The GMRE Center is located three miles south of Blairsville on Hwy 19/129 south. For more information, please call Clare Johnston at 706-7452655.

Reel Memories: #116 - North by Northwest

By: William V. Reynolds Columnist Did you know that there’s someone somewhere in the world who looks enough like you for you to be mistaken for that person? I’ve had it happen to me on a number of occasions. But then I’m supposed to have one of those faces that “looks famous” according to some people. For example, one day in a Kroger store, I was told I resembled three different celebrities within a period of a few minutes. But what if you were mistaken for a person who didn’t really exist? That’s the dilemma faced by the protagonist in our film for today. Roger Thornhill (Cary Grant), a New York advertising agent is mistaken for a spy while trying to contact a man he’s never met in a New York hotel. He is kidnapped and taken to a New Jersey location where he meets a mysterious fellow who has connections with the

United Nations. After he manages to escape, he goes to the UN building where he becomes involved in a murder. With his picture on the front page of every newspaper in the country, he takes a train to Chicago. He meets Eve Kendall (Eva Marie Saint) on the train who may or may not be involved with the plot to assassinate him. When Thornhill goes to meet a man on the plains he is attacked by a crop duster in one of the most dramatic scenes ever put on film. Returning to Chicago, he attends a mysterious art auction where he again encounters the men who had abducted him earlier. In order to escape them a second time he causes a disturbance and is arrested by the police. When he identifies himself as a wanted fugitive he is taken to an airport, but instead of returning him to New York, the plane carries him to Rapid City, South Dakota. The film concludes with a dramatic scene of Thornhill and Eve

Kendall being chased across the face of Mount Rushmore by Martin Landau. This scene, shot on a Hollywood back lot, is supposed to be one of the most dramatic scenes ever put on film as well. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards, film editing, art direction, and original screenplay. It also won an Edgar Award for best motion picture screenplay. In 1995 the film was selected for preservation in the United States national film Registry of the Library of Congress for being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.” Today we give a reel memories salute to North by Northwest (1959).

5B LIFE & ARTS This place is rigged! Beall to teach writing class Sentinel Newspapers February 24, 2010

The Lilith Lidseen Performing Arts Association, Inc. (LLPAA) recently completed the project to inspect, repair and enhance the backstage rigging (ropes, pulleys and cables) in use since 1984 when the Peacock Playhouse first opened. Roberts Stage Curtains of Travelers Rest, South Carolina, was engaged to complete the work. The inspection took place in the fall of 2009 followed by a report of findings and recommendations. A crew of four came to make the changes and improvements over a period of four days in mid-December. To be more precise, Roberts crew inspected the equipment on the arbor wall (the area used to lower/ raise backdrops, etc.); the “t” bar or wire guides, tension blocks, other arbors, rope locks and head blocks. The inspection included the fly loft (the area above the stage) equipment, loft blocks, cable, pipe battens and all the curtains. A new batten (horizontal bar) and winch were installed along back of the theater ceiling to allow for “drops” to be lowered into a slot in the floor so that the top of a background can be painted by volunteers without having to work on a ladder.

The most exciting enhancement was the installation of a trapeze support. This apparatus will allow another option for special effects providing The Licklog Players more latitude in their play selections. (Think “Peter Pan”, “Mary Poppins” type effects). LLPAA President Jane Hindsman said, “We are so pleased to have completed this project ensuring the safety and functionality of the rigging system for the many volunteers who work so hard behind the scenes, opening and closing curtains, bringing down the drops and other important operations that add to the professionalism of productions. And, we are grateful to the community’s support as they believe in our vision of a comprehensive performing arts center through the generous gift of Lilith Lidseen.” The LLPAA is a private, non-profit 501c3 organization established in 2007 to purchase, renovate and maintain the Peacock Playhouse and provide a permanent home for the Licklog Players. For more information contact Bonny Herman, the Managing Director, at 828-389-2787.

Buddy O’Reilly Band to perform at Folk School By: Natalie Moses Contributing Writer Brasstown Concert Association (BCA) is pleased to present the Buddy O’Reilly Band in concert on Sunday, March 7 at 2:30pm at the Keith House, John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. The concert will be preceded by a lecture at 1:45 pm on the dances of the British Isles and Ireland, including some which are well known to Brasstown audiences: garland, country and Morris dances. One of the southeast’s leading Celtic ensembles, this concert will highlight the beautiful melodies and toe-tapping dance tunes from Scotland and Ireland. The instrumentation includes the fiddle, flute, mandolin Irish Uillean bagpipes, harmonica, banjo, tin whistle, guitar, bodran and hand-held drum. Additionally there will be 4 Irish step dancers. Affectionately known as “the Buddies,” this Atlanta-

based group takes great pleasure in drawing from the wealth of Celtic music, from haunting Gaelic melodies to the widely recognized old-style jigs as well as contemporary arrangements of today’s “hot” Celtic tunes. “This is going to be a lively concert” says Bob Grove, BCA president, “Our own North Carolina Bluegrass has its roots in Celtic music. It’s great to bring it full circle!” This concert is supported in part by The North Carolina Arts Council, an agency funded by the State of North Carolina and the National Endowments for the Arts. The Buddy O’Reilly Band will perform at Keith House, John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown. No reservations are required and seating is by general admission. Tickets for the event may be purchased at the door on Sunday March 7; $14 for adults and $7 for students. For information call 828 389 2595 or email Brasstownconcert@gmail.com

Col. Hampton to invade Get ready for a night of jazz and blues March 26th at the Sautee Nacoochee Center. Col. Bruce Hampton has been making music since he formed his first band in 1963. Col. Bruce has been in constant motion ever since leaving a trail of memorable live performances with his many bands, including The Late Bronze Age and Col. Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit. Along the way he appeared in the movie "Sling Blade" as the poet and band manager Morris and starred in Mike Gordon's cult classic "Outside Out" as a mystical guitar 'out'structor. Since 2006, The Colonel has been playing a unique blend of blues and jazz with his band Col. Bruce & The Quark Alliance, featuring Kris Dale (bass), Perry Osborn (guitar) and Duane Trucks (drums). It would be difficult to overestimate the impact Bruce has had on the jam band movement. He has been a major influence on most, if not all, of its major players since its unofficial inception and has in turn influenced a new generation of musicians as a result. Still rolling down the road, Col. Bruce continues his quest for the tonal center

at each exit #6. We are planning a unique evening in honor of Bruce’s impact in the arts and music.There will be a special show of Bruce’s art work before the show and special showing of videos from his career. Get tickets early for this future Georgia Music Hall of Fame member! Beginning at 6pm in the community hall will be a special dinner. Roasted oysters, with condiments of saltine crackers, fresh citrus, hot sauce, horseradish and cocktail sauce. Fresh Georgia Coast 'Peel and Eat' Shrimp, cooked in a Louisiana Low Country Broth, served with cocktail sauce. Homemade Summer Slaw & Garlic Cheddar grits...all for only $10 per person. Quanities will be limited so it’s highly recommended to make reservations. Concert tickets are $15 plus tax for members and $20 plus tax for non members. Showtime is 8:00pm. Tickets and reservations can be made online at www.snca.org or by calling the Center box office at 706-878-3300. The Sautee Nacoochee Center is located on Ga. Hwy 255, ¼ mile off Ga. Hwy 17. Turn at the Old Sautee Store.

Tree-planting season extended by wet weather

The Georgia Forestry Commission has extended its seedling delivery season through March 15, due to a wetter and cooler than normal winter. According to the GFC, soil moisture and air temperature have a critical effect on seedling survival. In most years, Georgia starts getting warmer and drier days in late February and early March, which signals the end of the tree planting season. However, the current ‘el nino’ conditions should make the weather favorable for an additional few weeks. The GFC will continue to take orders and make deliveries to county offices through March 15, which will help landowners who have not been able to plant yet. While many species are sold out, the Flint River Nursery still has ample supplies of loblolly, slash, virginia and longleaf pines. For landowners interested in mast-producing species, there are sawtooth and water oaks. Wax myrtle and hairy lespedeza are available to enhance quail and game bird habitat. In urban settings, baldcypress is an attractive alternative that is well adapted to the difficult air and soil conditions that may be present.
