arlena Smalls and Lavon Stevens and Band will be playing jazz and blues at The Arsenal, 713 Craven Street, on Saturday, October 27, starting at 7 p.m. All proceeds will benefit KNOB (Kids North of the Broad), a newly formed after-school artistic program for children ages 11-18. Smalls and her nonprofit partner, Maura Connelly, created KNOB to “link children to the arts ... one note at a time.” “During difficult economic times, the first programs often cut are the arts. We wanted to give back to the community and foster a diverse arts program for our children,” said Dr. Smalls. The focus will be on music, writing, visual arts, dance and theater. The introduction to the program will be Tuesday, October 30 from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. KNOB will be housed at the Boys & Girls Club of Beaufort, 1100 Boundary Street. For questions about the program, contact Maura Connelly at 843-812-1239. Dr. Marlena Smalls is a versatile and dynamic entertainer, educator, singer and actress. Lavon Stevens began performing in local groups across the Southeast at the age of 13. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at the Beaufort Visitor Center, 713 Craven Street, or by calling 1-800-638-3525.

Martha Earnest’s extraordinary life By Pamela Brownstein

Martha Earnest has never driven a car. She’s been to the Canadian side of Niagra Falls, but that was the only time she traveled outside of the United States. She loves football — she cheers for the Carolina Panthers and the Cleveland Browns — and she wears the team jerseys on game days. She likes to watch “Jeopardy,” and her family has nicknamed her Smart Mart. While these facts about her life might sound somewhat ordinary, consider her birth date: February 14, 1909.

voices backwoods barbie gets political

Only as strong as those he leads By Cherimie Crane Weatherford Rarely do I delve into the deep end of politics, the righteous rip tide of religion or even discussions of personal preference in regards to matters of supreme subjection. Being of simple mind, many of the grayest areas are tucked in the corner of right and wrong. I find comfort in keeping my position private. The pending election has stirred the river bed and brought much dirt to the surface. Dirt for everyone to see, swirl and clump and fall as it may. Pundits, preachers even preschool teachers debate the latest buzzword, the most recent cause and the body language of the messenger. Similar to little kids making a Christmas list, people talk of issues that will miraculously be solved once the name on the oval office desk is confirmed. Dreams of resolution and brighter days are evident in often childlike anticipation of what lies ahead. Even the most intellectual type, paint with water color on the canvas of their preferred candidate. The change or reinstatement of one man is propped powerfully on a pedestal of intent. My sister and I would make our Christmas lists without limit, adding, subtracting and methodically expressing our dreams of objects, events and moments we were certain would find their way through closed doors, locked windows, and dogs that would bark at shuttered breath. Any

possible obstacle the coldest of Mississippi winters could bring, one list attained on one day, somehow eased the realization of the often harshness of Cherimie frozen fields and Crane Weatherford restricted play. Trips to far off places, bikes with bells and baskets and toys that talked back were repeat requests. Looking back, many of those items and wishes I already had tucked in a trunk; however, the act of wishing for overnight satisfaction was far greater than the gift. Santa would bring new and shiny gifts that required no dusting or repair. Logic crept in reminding even my naive soul of the obvious odds against an intruder cloaked in velvet sliding through a chimney; however, the bliss of blind belief chipped away the doubt. Ceremonious ribbons, tinsel and decorated paper lay strewn across our home with the realization that months of anticipation are gone. The gifts, the toys, the promises of trips and special moments lay before us comfortably in the area of gray. Santa is credited with meeting the expectations as exhausted parents beam pride through over spent eyes. Without our anticipation, our dreams and requests sit lifelessly waiting for direction. The dolls don’t dance, the bikes stay motionless and the trips lay waiting.

The issues we champion during the election time often find themselves at the bottom of the pile. Once passionately defended and promoted quickly sit comfortably cloaked in gray once the vote is tallied. Does the process of change and anticipation of hope trump change and hope itself? With a nation so torn and so lost in translation, will the wish lists ever meet expectations? Will action be reinstated where argument resides? It is my simple mind that dreams of a nation so strong, so self-sufficient and so retainable that wish lists are left for Christmas, and to-do lists start at home. A nation that doesn’t anxiously await one man to somehow slip through brick walls, slide through locked doors and deliver gifts that come with debt and obligation. I crave the work ethic of my grandparents, the common sense of my father and the pride of my neighbors. My hopes are not placed in one man on one day who rallies behind wish lists. My hopes lie within the people. The election is coming; the tinsel and balloons will fall. One will claim victory while millions of anxious men and women watch with childlike hope, childlike expectation. Radiant red, bold blue and wishful white will fade. Within us, within our families and within our walls lies the only answer, the only gifts our country seeks. A leader is only as strong as those he leads, those he reflects and those who hold him accountable.

continued from page 1 This 103-year-old woman lived on her own in Cleveland, Ohio, until she was 100. She never took medicine, and she said she never saw a doctor for about 45 years. Born Martha Chytzer, she grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was there that she met her husband at baseball camp when she was on her church team. He was six years older, so when she was 17, she said, “Well, I’ll tell you, we ran off to get married.” The two took a train from Pittsburgh to Youngstown, Ohio, but they couldn’t get married because of her age. “We eloped, but they wouldn’t let us get married,” she said with a laugh. On the train ride back, her husband proposed. “I had a wedding ring and an engagement band all at the same time,” Martha remembers. When they arrived home, she had to tell her parents about her trip, but she said they were understanding. They gave their consent and the lovebirds got married properly in a minister’s parsonage the next week. For their first 10 years, the couple enjoyed their time together. Martha recalls that was during the flapper age, and they even went to speakeasies.

graphic design Pamela Brownstein Jennifer Walker Martha Earnest, 103, lives with her granddaughter on Cat Island, Beaufort.

At age 30, she gave birth to her daughter, Julie. Martha has been living with Julie’s daughter, her granddaughter Sydney Lubkin, on Cat Island since last December. She has a mother-in-law suite that is attached to the back porch, and Sydney calls it the Penthouse because it is big and cozy and set up with a bathroom, small kitchen area and all of Martha’s pictures and knickknacks. Sydney said her husband and two kids marvel at Martha’s intelligence and sense of humor, and that’s why they nicknamed her Smart Mart. Although she’s still sharp mentally, she has lost most of her eyesight, so she can’t do the things she most loved,

such as baking pies or embroidering tablecloths. Not being able to read has been difficult too. “I have read for as long as I can remember,” Martha said. But she is a big fan of the Beaufort library and listens to at least one book a week on CD. “I like the romances,” she said and cites Nicholas Sparks and Pat Conroy as favorite authors. When asked about the secret to her longevity, Martha said with a chuckle, “I don’t have any secrets. If I did, I forgot them long ago.” It could be said that age is just a number, but Martha’s warm spirit, sweet personality and long life are certainly something to be admired.

New store in Habersham specializes in religious items Tucked inside the Habersham Marketplace in Beaufort is The Bible Student, a shop devoted exclusively to helping consumers select a Bible and get the most out of reading it. Operated by father and daughter team Randy and Kristen Coy, The Bible Student is slated to officially open Saturday, October 27, at 10-A 1 Market St. Offering Bibles, study tools and a variety of biblical literacy seminars and classes, The Bible Student is the first of its kind in the Lowcountry. The vision for the shop was born after the Coys came up nearly empty handed when shopping for various Bibles and study tools locally. Shortly after, they made a decision to make the book that means so much to them readily available for purchase and study. “We thought it would be great to have a place where there was a multitude of Bibles offered, a place where questions could be asked and someone knew the answers,” Randy Coy said. “Our goal is help people on their individual journeys, thoroughly equipped with the tools and information they want and need. We don’t intend to push a specific doctrine.” The Bible Student stocks a large variety of Bibles at substantial savings over other retailers. And because they only sell Bibles, their staff is specially trained to help individuals navigate the myriad of

choices — from versions to price points. “Of course, buying a Bible can be easier than actually reading it,” Randy said. “That’s why The Bible Student offers a variety of classes to help beginning and advanced readers learn the geography, historical context and structure of the Bible.” Complimentary 20-minute classes on a variety of Biblical topics and themes will be offered throughout the store’s opening day, and The Bible Student will be open for general shopping, browsing and inquiries.

Fall maintenance for your home

Growing up in the technology phase such as ours, admitting one is computer-illiterate is a bit embarrassing. But that’s exactly what I am! When I run into trouble with anything technological, I’m looking for someone that will fix it-not just pay me lip service-that’s exactly what Jerod did! Not only did he fix my laptop, but helped further educate me on the subject that is responsible for so many frustrated outburststechnology! The quality of work was great, the price was very reasonable and Jerod was very easy to work with-everything about the service I received at Digital Remedi made me very happy! ~ Joanna Harmon

As the leaves change and the days get shorter, take the time this autumn to prepare for the oncoming cold weather. Ready the furnace for the months of work it will have ahead, and clean out the fireplace. Test them both to ensure they’ll be working when you need the heat. With upkeep in the fall, you’ll have peace of mind in the winter. Inside The House Heating System Checkup: Be sure to change the air filter in your furnace and check its efficiency before the cold weather begins. Call in an HVAC contractor to test the heating output and give the system a tuneup. This technician can also check for and correct possibly hazardous carbon monoxide levels generated by your heating system. Stock up on several air filters for the winter, and change them every month. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, purchase one for the system to help lower your energy costs. After your furnace has been tuned up to its maximum efficiency, take a moment to inspect your heating ducts and vents. Dust them off and clear away anything that may have gotten into them over the summer. Then check your windows for any leaks that may compromise your heating efficiency. If you feel cold air coming in, purchase a plastic sealing kit from the hardware store and place the plastic around the window to keep the heat from escaping. Be sure to check your doors as well, and fix their weather-stripping if needed. Check The Fireplace And Chimney: Most chimney sweeps recommend an annual sweeping, but depending on how often you use the fireplace, you might be able to wait on a full sweep. But if you will be using the fireplace often, call a chimney sweep for an inspection. Hopefully you will have

your older, seasoned firewood now ready for use after sitting for the spring and summer. It’s recommended to keep the firewood at least 30 feet from the house and covered. Seasoned wood is best for fires, as it burns cleaner and longer. Review Home Fire Safety: The introduction of the heating season brings new potential for fire hazards, so take a moment to review fire safety in your home. Check and replace fire extinguishers if necessary, and change the batteries in your smoke detectors. Also go over the home fire evacuation plan with your family. Outside The House The Gutters: It’s best to inspect and clean the gutters a few times during the fall, especially if there are many leafy trees around your house. If gutters remain clogged, water will spill over them and onto the ground next to the foundation, which may cause damage to the foundation. Gutters and downspouts should be kept clean and should direct water away from the foundation, as well as from walkways and driveways. Yard Maintenance: As leaves fall, rake them into piles and scoop them into yard waste bags. Most areas have ordinances about burning leaves, so check with your local area government first. When sweeping the leaves off your patio, don’t forget to clean, pack up, and store any patio furniture for the winter. Disconnect garden hoses and, if practical, use an indoor valve to shut off and drain water from pipes leading to outside faucets. This reduces the chance of freezing in the section of pipe just inside the house. In The Garage: It is recommended that you empty out unused fuel from any gas-powered equipment stored in the garage, such as a lawn mower, because sediment can build up and clog the fuel lines.

Why have a mammogram at the Women’s Imaging Center?

A suspicious mammogram can make any woman anxious, but Jess Laboy was terrified. She ’d already endured the loss of two family members to breast cancer. Unnerved at the prospect of waiting days for ultrasound results, she chose Beaufort Memorial and got results the very same day. Jess was grateful for every second free of worrying and waiting, and for more time to celebrate with her family.

A deeper look at Monsanto: Part III This morning I made a decision that made me feel a little nervous, as I hadn’t really asked enough questions. But I decided to forgive myself, hope for the best, open a bag of corn chips, and a move on. Yet, like the innocuous opening of many a horror flick, even as I sat there munching my chips, there were silent alarms sounding in the background of my life (and yours) that may ultimately lead to the scare of a lifetime. The alarm was sounding because I was most likely soothing an anxious moment with the consumption of a little GMO Corn, and we’re not really sure as a nation what that might do to me in the long run. In the United States 80%-85% of all the corn grown is genetically modified food, or GMO (Genetically Modified Organism). Genetically modified corn, along with many other GMO crops, is resistant to Glyphosate, an herbicide that would ordinarily wither crops right along with the weeds. In addition, the insertion of Bacillus thuringiensis into GMO corn creates an insecticide right in the plants. Therefore, when you eat GMO corn, you are inadvertently consuming the toxin that was inserted into the corn, and any Glyphosate residue left on the plant. Genetically Modified Corn, because of its proliferation, can be found in

corn-based cereals, corn-based snacks, your meat (animals are generally fed Genetically Modified Corn), even that bag of dog food you bought last week. Glyphosate, the main chemical behind Roundup, has become so wide spread as an herbicide that in one study it was the leading herbicide found in water droplets tested in three different states. In that particular study, 60%-100% of the water droplets tested during the growing season, in high agricultural areas, contained herbicide. It’s raining herbicide. In a study that tested 69 Canadian pregnant women eating an average diet, Glyphosate was found in 93% of the women tested, and in 80% of the unborn

teach your children well Starting your children off with the right view of finances is so important these days — especially when debt seems to be a common way of life for so many. We can, however, change the way our own children look at money. Here are some important lessons to teach your children about their money: 1. Money Does Not Grow On Trees. Children do not understand, at least not at first, that there is not an unlimited supply of money at the bank, or on the credit card. Explain to them the process that they can only buy what you have money to pay for. 2. Saying “No” To Some Unnecessary Things. One of the most valuable lessons a child can learn is to willingly choose to say “No” to some purchases - even if they want it. Do not give them money every time they want it - this teaches them that there is a bottomless supply - when there isn’t. 3. It Is Important To Save. Besides saving for something that they really want, which is a good reason in itself, teach them to save for unexpected things. For instance, if they receive a regular allowance, or, are working after school and earning some money on their own, teach them to put aside a regular percentage — say 10-15%. 4. Establish A Budget. Once your child

is receiving a regular amount of money, you will want to show them how to plan for a wise use of that money. Help them to know how to set money aside for basically three different things: money to spend now, money for special purchases that require savings, and long-term savings. 6. Teach Them About Credit Cards. Credit cards and checking accounts are similar in that they provide ease of purchase, but without the necessity of carrying cash. Your children only see you handing over the plastic, or another piece of paper. But they never see that cash is involved — it is behind the scenes to them. Show them how that you must pay monthly for both and that you should never buy more than what you can afford - except for some larger purchases - because the bills for it will come! 7. Give Regularly To Good Causes. Probably one of the greatest joys that a child can have in the use of their own money is the joy that comes from willingly giving their money to causes greater than themselves. By learning to give some of their money often to causes such as their church, or a charity, they learn that their money can be a blessing to others.

Has the United States become such a backwater of the world that while 30 other countries have banned or propose to ban GMO foods, we can’t even get GMO labeling? babies tested. Glyphosate? It’s everywhere you are. And Monsanto is the market leader. The FDA has been inundated with Monsanto personnel from the beginning, so expect no aid from that quarter, but in other countries a recent GMO study is being taken very seriously. The Wall Street Journal, September 25, 2012, noted that “Russia’s consumer-rights watchdog said Tuesday it has suspended the import and use of a genetically engineered corn made by Monsanto Co. following a study’s findings that suggested the crop might cause cancer. The study, conducted by France’s University of Caen and published last week, found that rats fed over a two-year period with the U.S. crop-biotechnology company’s genetically modified NK603 corn, marketed under the Roundup

Ready brand name, developed more tumors and other severe diseases than a test group fed with regular corn ... the French government last week ordered its food-safety agency to review quickly the study and said it would seek an immediate ban on European Union imports of the crop if the study’s findings were deemed conclusive.” I read this Wall Street Journal article and wondered — has the United States become such a backwater of the world that while 30 other countries have banned or propose to ban GMO foods, we can’t even get GMO labeling? There is hope, though. Proposition 37, the California Right to Know Genetically Modified Food Act, which will require most GMO foods sold in California to be labeled, will be voted on next month. Also, The Voice of the Environment, reports that, “in the U.S., Gerber and Heinz baby foods, FritoLay, IAMS Pet Foods, Trader Joe’s and even McDonald’s and Burger King are now refusing GMO corn, potatoes, and other ingredients.” But really it falls on us, the consumers, to wake up and decide for ourselves if there really is a boogie man. And if there is, is he feeding us a nightmare? Or just the latest in scientific method. To be continued.

“Headache is one of the most common reasons for physician visits by patients. One study tracked 953 headache patients for five years. They made nearly 4,000 visits to doctors in seeking relief from headache. Though physicians have identified and classified muscle tension headache, the medical literature is virtually absent of any treatment other than drugs or psychological therapy. These patients went to every conceivable medical specialty but only 8% of those visits were to dentists. Every dentist who has treated patients knows that the bite can cause multiple health problems termed, TMJ syndrome or dysfunction.” (Mytronics: Vol 23, Nov. 07) My daughter and partner Katherine Hefner and I have treated hundreds of patients with great success eliminating such problems as temporal (side of head) headaches, headaches at the base of the skull, neck ache, jaw pain, shoulder pain and ringing of the ears. the island news | october 25-30, 2012 |

Adrian Bell knows the secret to good skin By Lanier Laney

caught up with Adrian Bell as she was hanging the sign for her new skin care salon in a charming cottage at the end of Paris Avenue in Port Royal, across from City Hall next to the Shed. She recently bought the business formerly known as MediMorphosis Day Spa. She’s been in the skin care business for the past four years in Beaufort doing facials, full body waxing, eyelash tinting, makeup services and airbrush tanning — all customized for both men and women. Her client list includes a roster of local “who’s-who” ladies (and their husbands). The Barnwell, South Carolina, native got exposed to the beauty business early on when her mother entered her into beauty pageants as a young girl. “Not the Honey Boo Boo style,” corrects Adrian, “but real pageants like they used to have. It was fun throughout my childhood to get all dressed up

and be on stage. I was inspired by these experiences.” So much so, that Adrian went on to get full training and a degree from Lacy Cosmetology School in Aiken. She came to Beaufort with a friend, and thought it was so beautiful and the people were so nice, friendly and fun that she decided to make her home here. And then she found out she loves the “Salt Life” here too. Adrian offers a range of

wonderful skin care facials and body wraps. Says Adrian, “People are amazed at the results with the glycolic facial by the way their skin transforms to a more smoother, even skin tone and how it eliminates hyper pigmentation in just six sessions!” She adds, “I love bringing out my customer’s beauty and making them feel great about themselves. As a guest at my spa, I want them to feel comfortable and at home and get the pampering they deserve.”

Although she’s very excited to have her own skin care salon, she’s also been known to travel by taking her services to clients’ homes, weddings and even girls’ get together “sip and tan” parties where everyone gets to enjoy a glass of wine while each gets a spray tan in her mobile tanning tent. Says Adrian, “Airbrush tanning gives your skin a glow, enhances your figure, camouflages cellulite, stretch marks, and varicose veins. We all love being pampered, so why not look “sun-kissed” in the process!” As far as her personal life, it was on a trip back home when Adrian met the man of her dreams; She and John Bell have been happily married for two years. Says Adrian, “Three years

ago, I was a single mother with a wonderful son (Sullivan Marshall, age 10) and I met John back in my hometown of Barnwell at a mutual friend’s house and we hit it off. The problem was I was here and he lived there. After a bit of a long distance relationship, he moved here and we got married and had a beautiful daughter, (Eva Ann, now 17 months).” John enjoys his job as a foreman for Seckinger Forest Products out of Hampton, S.C. If you visit Adrian’s spa, you will be struck by how relaxing it is thanks to the music and beautiful, serene decor. To future clients, Adrian had this to say: “For a more smoother and clearer skin tone, I hope you come to see me, I would love to have you as a guest at my spa so that you can take a relaxing break to pamper yourself and leave my spa with an instant, more youthful glow whether it’s a facial or a tanning service.”

Fall Festival Homeowners By Lanier Laney

Historic Beaufort Foundation’s Fall Festival of Houses and Gardens, now in its 40th year, is the organization’s most important fundraising event of the year. Much of the funds raised go to purchase properties of historic significance that are in danger of demolition or deterioration, and to maintain The Verdier House, the only historic house open to the public on a daily basis. But this Fall Tour of Homes does not happen so successfully year after year without a lot of hard work by people behind the scenes who do so much to preserve what we all love about Beaufort. The quiet, hardworking Isabella Reeves, a Savannah native and former director of the Savannah Tour of Homes & Gardens for 10 years, has been doing a terrific job overseeing the tour here for the past 14 years since she and her husband, whose family are longtime Blufftonians, moved Okatie in 1995. Says Isabella,” I thought I was moving to the country, but look what happened!” I asked Isabella why devoting her life to overseeing the tours has been important to her. “I love historic houses, lived in one in New Orleans and Savannah ... and I love people there you go.” And she says also that “Beaufort is unique and beautiful — a jewel of the South because of the relationship between the water, the houses and the history and its still relatively pristine condition.” Through the tours, local residents graciously open up their homes to share their love of Beaufort with visitors from all over the U.S., and the world. Says Isabella,” the Fall Tour is important because it is one of the few times of the year that the graciousness that is ingrained in old Beaufort can be expressed.” And it’s clearly working, as you hear many stories from people who decided to move to Beaufort after attending one of those lovely fall tours

fall festival of homes You can still buy tickets for the Fall Festival of Houses and Gardens Oct. 26-28 online or by phone or at the Courtyard of The Arsenal, 713 Craven Street. HBF will have a ticket office there until Sunday, Oct. 28 at noon. And yes, tickets can be purchased the day of at The Arsenal.

Besides a big thank you from all of us to Isabella for the great job she’s done organizing and coordinating this event, another big round of thanks goes to those who graciously open their homes. Imagine how much work you would have to do if you knew your house and garden were going to be on tour for hundreds of people to scrutinize!!

Another historic home in the Northwest Quadrant has been purchased for stabilization by Historic Beaufort Foundation, an investment that will be matched by the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation’s Endangered Places Fund. The Palmetto Trust is a statewide preservation organization that supports the protection and preservation of historic places. T h e purchase of 1407 Duke Street, known as the Frogmore Lodge, was accomplished through Historic Beaufort Foundation’s Boarch H B F ’ s Chairman Conway Ivy R e v o l v i n g that and Palmetto Trust’s Fund invests in Mike Bedenbaugh. historic structures which, when sold, return that investment for future projects. HBF’s Revolving Fund has a long history of success including the rescue of The Anchorage, the William Wigg Barnwell House and a dozen others. The partnership with the Palmetto Trust will enable HBF to begin a stabilization process that will eventually result in the house being marketed by both nonprofits to a purchaser who will complete the restoration. This is the Palmetto Trust’s first project in Beaufort County.

What’s new at ARTworks? Sculptures for Home & Garden by Stephen Kishel November and December 2012 in the gallery at ARTworks: contemporary sculpture for your garden, walls and ceilings. Sculptor Stephen Kishel creates contemporary works in metal that moves, with lines that float and flow. His three part show at ARTworks in Beaufort is an exciting look at form that dramatically, and colorfully, stands, hangs, and reaches. Friday, November 2: opening of “Sculpture for your Garden” phase, meet the artist at the reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, November 23: opening of “Sculpture for your Walls” phase, meet the artist at the reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, December 14: Opening of “Mobiles: sculpture for your Ceilings” phase, meet the artist at the reception from 6-8 p.m. “The Misanthrope” by Molière will be at the black box theater at ARTworks November 8-11 and 15-18. What’s worse than being the only (selfproclaimed) honest man in a world of liars, gossips, and fools? Being head-over-heels in love with the chief offender among them. “The Misanthrope” follows the hilariously thorny love-life of the irascible Alceste and the coquettish Célimène, who

put the concept of “opposites attract” to the ultimate test. “The Misanthrope” is produced by Palmetto Theater Xperiment and directed by J.W. Rone, from an original translation by Beaufortonian Daniel H. Daniels from the French verse. The play will be November 8 -10 at 7:30 p.m.; November 11 at 3 p.m.; November 15-17 at 7:30 p.m.; November 18 at 3 p.m. For tickets, 379-2787 and www. $17 per person, $12 for students, $7 for children (12 and under) and $12 for groups of 10 or more. Thursdays are Pay What You Can ($5 minimum.) ARTworks is located in Beaufort Town Center, 2127 Boundary St. Studios for Artists A studio at ARTworks means a dedicated space to create, in an environment that is designed to incubate arts careers and arts businesses. “Out in the community right now,” explained JW Rone, executive director of ARTworks, “we have 30 artists and 10 businesses that incubated in our studio program. Attention usually goes to bigger programs for that kind of economic development, but we’ve been quietly growing these small businesses that are so vital to tourism and the economy as a whole.” ARTworks is accepting applications from artists who are interested in a dedicated, affordable studio in order to thrive, grow, take risks and make daring choices. To learn more about the studios and resident artist program, contact the arts office to make an appointment: 843379-2787.

By Alan Schuster

‘Rising Star’ creates body of work The weekend of November 8-11 will witness close to 20.000 visitors to St. Helena Island to commemorate 150 years of Penn Center History. This will all occur during the 30th annual “Heritage Days” at Penn Center For the past 20 years, the Red Piano Too Art Gallery has hosted an exhibit during Heritage Days. This year, the gallery is featuring its latest “Rising Star,” Burton native, Sonnell Thompson. Sonnell, born in 1977, graduated from Battery Creek High School. It was at the school that he first became aware of his desire and ability to paint. A memory painter, Sonnell’s work is a study of the exuberance of the Lowcountry regions flora and fauna. This he intermixes with the indigenous richness of the Gullah people and culture. His art combines his love of painting marine life and the ocean with his childhood memories of the Gullah lifestyle. Central to

his work is his study and love of books on marine life. His use of fish along with a very prominent bright orange sun can be found in most of his paintings. Sonnell says, “I love nature — guess I’m just a naturalist by nature.” His work is influenced by that of Lowcountry artist extraordinaire Jonathan Green. Sonnell sought Green out and scheduled an appointment to visit with him in his Daniel Island Studio. He said Green encouraged him to “paint what you know — paint from your memory — establish your style and develop it.” This advice can be clearly seen in Sonnell’s

newest works; his paintings have become much more cohesive with a centrality to them. In addition to painting, Sonnell enjoys writing poetry and hopes to one day publish a book of poems with his art. Sonnell lives in Beaufort with his wife Elaine whom he describes as, “my inspiration for what I do.” Sonnell and his wife are pursuing degrees online; he is working in business and computer applications. He describes himself as “a devout church-going man” and his serenity is reflected in his paintings. The exhibit will hang at The Red Piano Too Art Gallery during the month of November and is free and open to the public. The artist will be at the gallery during Heritage Days Weekend.

USCB Festival Series an unexpected find By Michael Johns

Last year, after a 40-year career in classical music performing and teaching, I moved to Lady’s Island from Philadelphia. As with virtually everyone my wife and I have met who is not from this area, we are amazed at the variety and depth of interesting Lowcountry sights, sounds and tastes. One of the unexpected and delightful pleasures we found was the discovery of USCB’s Chamber Music Festival Series. It is the equal of any concert series to be found in a major metropolitan area and the envy of any Beaufort-sized city in the country. Firstrate, established and emerging talent, imaginative programming catering to a wide variety of tastes, and an accessible concert venue with excellent acoustics combine for a satisfying concert experience. If orchestras are like a rainbow of color, chamber music is like a jewel of distilled brilliance. Orchestras provide the power of a chorus while chamber music offers the intimacy of intense conversation. Both are compelling in their own way. To experience chamber music is to feel that you have been invited into an acquaintance’s living room where the host and several close friends are discussing topics of interest. They look at each other while conversing; agreeing, objecting, jumping in, pulling back. It is a personal exchange,


A preview of Verdi’s ‘Otello’

thoroughly alive and in the moment. In this fast-pace, Twitter-feed world, it is hard to find moments of quiet contemplation where you can be lost in thought without fear of distraction. Church is one such place. Another is in a quiet concert hall experiencing chamber music. The intimacy and the intricacy of the music catches you up and transports you beyond the cacophony of the world outside the hall. This season’s five-concert Festival Series allows you the opportunity to sit back and experience works by 18th-century composers such as J. S. Bach, Haydn, and Mozart, through compositions written at the end of the 20th century. Each concert program promises to provide an exceptional opportunity to enjoy the music of the world’s finest composers played by artists whom one would expect to find playing in Alice Tully and Carnegie Halls, but is delighted to find at the USCB Center for the Arts. The concerts are always Sunday at 5 p.m., and this year’s dates are November 4, December 9, February 10, March 17 and April 28. Complete program information is available at www.uscb. edu/festivalseries. Subscriptions and individual tickets can be ordered through Staci Breton at 843-208-8246 or

the island news | october 25-30, 2012 |

Without a doubt, Francis Toye’s biography, “Verdi: His Life and Music” continues to be the standard on its subject since it was published in 1931. Writing about the composer’s “Otello”, he expressed his high esteem for it in these words. “In my view it is the greatest of Verdi’s operas. Have the love, the anguish, the passion, and the hatred of human beings ever been presented to an audience with deeper insight or poignancy than in this music? I think not. Shakespeare himself did not do, nor could not have done, better.” Much credit for this goes to Verdi’s librettist, Felice Romani, who did a remarkable job of transforming the play into musical poetry. No doubt Verdi reminded him of his imperative of “brevity, clarity and truth.” The cast: Otello, Venetian general, governor of Cyprus Desdemona, his wife Iago, Otello’s ensign Cassio, Otello’s lieutenant Emilia, Iago’s wife Roderigo, a Venetian Act I: Otello returns home during a storm and announces to a cheering crowd that he has destroyed the Turkish forces. When he leaves them to be with his new bride Desdemona, Iago expresses outrage at having been overlooked for a promotion which Otello gave to his rival Cassio. He swears revenge against Otello and begins it by plying Cassio with wine. When Cassio makes a spectacle of himself, Otello returns and dismisses him from his post. Iago, aware that Roderigo is in love with Desdemona, lies to him that Cassio is also in love with her. When the storm ends, Otello and Desdemona are now alone to recall their romantic courtship. Musical highlights *A magnificent outburst by the orchestra simulates the fury of a storm at sea. Otello arrives: “Esultate! (Glad tidings! Victory is ours ...) leading to a drinking ensemble: “Beva con me.” *Otello, Desdemona: “Gia nella notte...” (In the dark night...), a tender duet, passionate and calm. It’s one of Verdi’s finest. Act II: Iago urges Cassio to seek reinstatement by asking Desdemona to intercede on his behalf. Cassio agrees, after which Iago stirs up Otello’s jealousy by warning him of Cassio’s curious friendship with her. When Otello demands proof, Iago says that he has seen one of her handkerchiefs [which Iago placed on his person when she dropped it earlier] in Cassio’s hand. This enrages Otello as Iago joins him in an oath to avenge her infidelity. Musical highlights *Iago: The famous Credo aria, an astonishing depiction of evil: “Credo in un Dio crudel…” *Desdemona launches a stunning quartet, “Se inconscia” – (If ever against my will…), proclaiming her faithfulness to Otello while Emilia has her own suspicions against her husband, Iago. *Iago (to Otello): “Era la notte…” (During the night…), lying that he heard Cassio dreaming about Desdemona. It’s insinuatingly effective, an inspired piece of music. When Iago hints at the planted handkerchief, it becomes a one-two punch which infuriates Otello. Act III: With Venetian officals due to arrive soon, Iago presses Otello to act quickly against Desdemona in order to protect his honor. When they arrive, Otello reads a document ordering him to return to Venice. Suddenly, he loses control and turns on Desdemona, throwing her to the floor. Furious, he orders everyone to leave, then falls to the floor as well. As a crowd outside cries “Viva Otello, the Lion of Venice,” a mocking Iago – standing aside points to Otello and gloats “Ecco il leone!” (See there, the lion). Musical highlight: In the final minutes of the act, a massive ensemble begins as Desdemona cries: “A terra! – (Here, in the dust…). Six others express contrasting feelings at the same time, forming one of opera’s most dramatic and powerful act finales. How powerful? When it ends, check your pulse rate. Act IV: In her bedroom, Desdemona, while praying, has a premonition of danger. She falls asleep. Otello enters, awakening her with kisses, and then accuses her of being Cassio’s lover. She denies this, but doubt overwhelms him and, as she pleads for her life, he smothers her. There’s a knock on the door. Emelia enters and reveals Iago’s evil plotting against him, as well as asserting Desdemona’s innocence. Seeing her dead, Emilia screams, bringing Iago and Cassio into the room. Realizing he has been deceived, Otello stabs himself, kisses her one last time, and then falls dead. Musical highlights: *Desdemona: Both the familiar Willow Song (Salce! Salce!), followed soon by her “Ave Maria” prayer, are beautiful, poignant and simply expressed. *Otello: “Niun mi tema...” - (Do not fear me…) is the most moving passage of the opera as he realizes the horrifying depth of what he has done. Dying as he reaches for her, he cries: “Un bacio…un bacio ancora…un altro bacio…” Blanche Roosevelt, an opera singer who was in Milan during the premiere of “Otello” wrote this: “The anticipation of Otello was such that the streets were packed around La Scala on the morning of the premiere, shouting ‘Viva Verdi.’ Had he been in that crowd, he certainly would have been torn to pieces, as such a crowd in its enthusiasm rarely distinguishes between glory and assassination.” After the performance, she wrote that “the emotion was something indescribable, and many wept...” No soprano today can match the vocal richness and acting skills essential for Desdemona than the remarkable Renee Fleming. No one! And with the accomplished talents of Johan Botha (Otello) and Falk Struckman (Iago) joining her on stage, the audience will see and hear four great acts pass in a rapid two hours and ten minutes! Tickets are $20 for adults and seniors; $18 for OLLI members and $10 for youth. All seats are assigned and the box office opens at USCB Center or the Arts one hour prior to the 12:55 p.m. curtain time, or call 521-4145.

Bazaar at Parish Church of St. Helena returns to its roots Handmade Christmas decorations, gifts and foods will be spotlighted at this year’s Fall Bazaar presented by the Women of the Parish Church of St. Helena in Beaufort. “We want to return to our roots with this Bazaar, to honor our church’s 300 years of history,” says Martha Scott, who is co-chairing the event with Betty Ann Allison and Teresa Roundy. The bazaar, which benefits the church’s outreach efforts in Beaufort and around the world, will continue its nowfamous silent auction of more than 300 unique items ranging from excursions and restaurant dinners to fine art and furs, sailboats and furniture. Even St. Helena’s famous handmade chorister “church mice” will revisit their past. “We are bringing back all the ‘special’ mice we’ve created over the years,” Scott said. If anyone missed the conductor, the bishop, the crucifer or any of the others, they can complete their collection this year. Also returning are mice tucked into sardine-can “beds” — “not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse,” Scott reminded with a smile. The 2012 mouse will be unveiled at the bazaar preview, but it’s extra-special this year to honor the church’s history.

This year’s Fall Bazaar co-chairs at the Parish Church of St. Helena are, from left, Betty Ann Allison, Martha Scott and Teresa Roundy. They’re pictured in the Parish House crafts closet at the downtown church complex.

This bazaar will be open on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Parish House at 507 Newcastle St. in Beaufort. A Bazaar Preview will be held Friday, Nov. 2, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Nothing is sold on Friday (although Silent Auction bids are accepted). The preview is for

fellowship and an early look at bazaar offerings. Women of St. Helena’s will gather at the church and in their homes to plan projects and create crafts, aiming for a sizable inventory of Christmas wreaths and ornaments as well as gift items including rice “pillows” for sore muscles, mug rugs, hanger covers and utility bags. “Casserole days” will produce homemade dinners to be packaged and frozen for purchase at the Bazaar, including some recipes from local caterer and St. Helena parishioner Debbi Covington’s recently released cookbook, “Celebrate! Everything.” “Creating these items with love, together, provides a wonderful opportunity for fellowship with other women as well as producing beautiful things to sell,” Scott said. Bazaar shoppers will find the Parish House courtyard filled with plants and shrubs. Other features will include baked goods, candy, linens, books, jewelry, a pet boutique and the Bargain Box for gently used items. Contact the church office at 843-522-1712 for more information.

The members of the Lunch Bunch wound their way along the Sea Island Parkway, across the marsh, through the gate, and down idyllic streets to reach the clubhouse on Dataw Island. We found ourselves sitting in the newly renovated dining area, surrounded by tall windows that look out onto the manicured grounds and river beyond. The refreshing pomegranate champagne toast complimented our beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed freshly baked blueberry and corn muffins, then we shared the Stuffed Avocado appetizer — an avocado filled with a luscious combination of lump crab meat, Boursin cheese and green onions. We had a full table and were glad to welcome Nikki’s son, Dalton, who was visiting from Georgia. He entertained us with stories about Nikki getting mad at him and his friends, and she teased him in response, as only a loving mother can. Nikki’s flatbread pizza topped with pesto, Barefoot Farms tomatoes, bacon, Chévre and arugula was delicious, and she really enjoyed her side of coleslaw. Dalton was also pleased with his Corned Beef Reuben sandwich made

with hot corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing on toasted rye. Kim called dibbs on the chicken and asparagus crepes lunch special, and she was gushing at how good it looked — and tasted. I also ordered from the daily special menu — the spinach wrap with smoked salmon, bacon, tomatoes and capers was full of flavor and pizzazz. Elizabeth adored her Salad Tuscana because she loves kale, and with the

addition of beets, spinach, walnuts, goat cheese and grilled chicken, her plate was colorful and delicious — and healthy. Buck custom ordered a grilled chicken sandwich that was perfectly cooked and met Buck’s high sandwich standards. David was a fan of his fish and chips: fried white fish with sweet potato fries. The nationally trained executive chef and sous chef use local products when available, including fresh herbs from the Dataw Island Garden, and the quality

ingredients shine through in each dish. Although we were undecided about dessert, our gracious server brought us a gorgeous spread to take home.

Meet me at the Olive Bar! By Terry Sweeney

Just as where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and where there’s crazy, there’s Lindsay Lohan, where there’s a grape growing on a vine in Tuscany, you’re sure to find an olive tree. In the Mediterranean, olive groves often share the same dry stony hard-scrabble and have for thousands of years. The olive tree is amongst the oldest known cultivated trees in the world. Grown in Crete in 3,000 B.C., the Greeks were some of the first folks to squeeze these little suckers and get the oil out, which they used not only to cook their meals but also burned to light their houses. (After my last electric bill, I’m considering bringing back that charming ancient Greek custom and taking a trip to Greece with the money I save!) Then along came those unstoppable macho Roman centurions who loved olives almost as much as watching gladiators beat each other to a pulp. And that’s saying a lot. They took olives and wine with them wherever they conquered and thus the olive was introduced throughout the entire Oily Roman Empire. Fast forward to my Italian mother who used olives or olive oil in almost every dish she cooked for us kids. I reluctantly learned at her knee to acquire a taste for all the different olives she used in all her antipasto platters. My probing young mind, suspicious of these pungent briny little buggers, would often wonder aloud as to why anyone would willingly pop one in their mouth. My mother Lenore, ever the

patient, loving, wise elder that she was, would yell,” Just shut up and eat it! There are people starving in China!” “How ‘bout we send them my olives?” was always the Terry unspoken question on Sweeney the tip of my tongue. Now I love olives and they are a gourmet staple in my Happy Wino repertoire when I’m having guests. One of the most easy and enjoyable ways to class up your appetizers and make them memorable is to match up a Mediterranean wine with a serving of Mediterranean olives, nuts, cheeses and breads. Nothing says“You ain’t in Honey Boo Boo’s House” as when you serve a dollop of olive tapenade on a warm baguette. Be bold! Go wild! Show the other PTA moms who they’re dealing with! Wow them with these Mediterranean olives and pairing suggestions: From Italy: • Ligurian olives — black shiny olives that are high in oil with a delicate sweet flavor. • Cerignola — huge crisp green olives that look great on an appetizer platter and taste even better. • Black Sicilian olives — purplish black round olives that have an intense firm meaty texture and smell divine. Any or all of these can be paired with a chunk of Parmesano cheese; miniMozzarella balls in olive oil and spices;

roasted almonds and strips of toasted focaccia bread. Pair with your favorite Chianti, Sangiovese, or my favorite pricey guilty pleasure, Brunello di Montalcino. From Spain: • Gordal olives — also know as Queen olives one of my favorites (Surprise!) They have a firm meaty texture and best when they’re in a spicy brine that brings out their robust flavor. • Manzanilla — very munchable, small crisp nutty olives (that go well with garlic and olive oil in cooking). Serve with marconi almonds; chunks of manchego and strips of toasted smoked paprika garlic bread; and marinated artichoke hearts. For the wine, an earthy delicious Marques de Caceres Rioja. $15. From France: • Nicoise olives — tiny black and delicately relish olives that of course can go in a Nicoise Salad, duh! Picholine — uncracked green olives. Serve these up with a vegetable pate; blanched haricot verts with aioli mayonnaise dip; and that olive tapenade and baguette I mentioned earlier. My red choice for this is Belleruche Cote du Rhone Rouge, $13, affordable

and delicious. From Greece: • Kalamata olives are the best known Greek olive with a distinctive pointed almond shape and cured in a red wine brine. These olives are rich, silky and ultra-luscious. But beware a cheap kalamata! Look for a jar of hand picked (because supposedly when they are picked by machine, they ruin them). Serve with Feta cheese; spanikopita; stuffed grape leaves; and hummus with warm pita triangles. For the wine I recommend a Zinfandel like Bogle Old Vine Zin, $12, or for something lighter, a Belleruche Cote du Rhone Rose, $13. Now you know enough about olives to impress your friends and your frenemies! If your interest has been piqued, why not take your own culinary road trip to say ... The Olive Bar at Whole Foods in Charleston where you can start taste-testing for yourself. Luckily it’s not an expensive habit like shopping or heroin, and it’s the one bar you don’t need a designated driver to take you home from. Hope to see you soon at the olive bar one of these days. I may even buy you an olive. That’s the kind of guy I am. Cheers!

New wines available ‘Justin’ time for holidays Thank goodness, just in time for our holiday dinners we have a “set” of wines — white, red and dessert, some new, some old favorites, all really good and well-suited to our meals. Yay! So, again this week, we’re going to look at these “turkey” wines. But, keep in mind, by “turkey” we mean wines that will go with the assorted meats, vegetables, gravies and desserts that flood into our lives in a couple more weeks. Remember, as good as the food is, it’s all about the wines. So, off we go to mid-California — halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles — to the Paso Robles area. (And, yes, we were here a couple of months ago, but the wines are new.) Officially, the wine area around Paso Robles is the “Central Coast” of California. Paso (as those who like to sound cool nickname the city) is named for its location at a pass through the oak trees that are prolific in the area. Located on the Salinas River , Paso Robles is north of San Luis Obispo and known for its hot springs and the California Mid-State Fair. (Is any of this coming back to you yet?) The climate here, two different ones actually, is Mediterranean and coastal California. This means long, hot, dry summers, mild falls, short, and maybe rainy winters and early Springs. All together near perfect grape growing conditions. I think we’ll find, over time, as we talk about more and more wines, the area around Paso Robles has consistently good wines — different from both Napa and Sonoma — but just as good. Backing up a bit, for our history lesson, we have to remember the hot springs in the area. The Salinas Indians, who lived here thousands of years ago, before the Spanish Missions spread up through California from Mexico with their vineyards, called this area the “Springs.” Paso Robles was a land grant from Mexico that was purchased by the two Blackburn

Celia Strong works at Bill’s Liquor & Fine Wines on Lady’s Island.

brothers, James and Daniel, in 1857. Then, the “Springs” were a rest stop on the Camino Real — the Spanish highway that ran north from Mexico into California. Settlers came to the area, establishing cattle ranches, apple and almond orchards, dairy farms and vineyards. The El Paso de Robles Hotel was built, in 1864, a city park was also built, and a fair was held, October 31, 1886, to attract land buyers to the area. (I remember the date of that fair from the last time we looked at a Paso wine; we’re close to its anniversary.) So, yes, there was a great fair, yes, settlers came and came into the area, yes, vineyards were always part of the area’s history and economics, and now we’re all here to enjoy the benefits! Yes! Moving on, we now go to Justin Winery in Paso Robles. This is a family owned winery making most of their wines with grapes that they grow. The winery was founded in 1981 by Justin Baldwin, a former investment and international banker. He bought 160 acres and planted his estate vineyards. He has focused on making world class Bordeaux style blends, earning many awards and high scores ever since. Justin Winery is the only Central Coast winery to keep a full-time chef. Partly, because this is, after all, the French model where wine is a condiment for your food, but also because they now have a small but superb restaurant at the winery. Since 1981, the winery has expanded its vineyard acreage by working with a handful of selected growers nearby. Justin Baldwin and his daughter live at the winery and are involved every day in all

aspects of the business. But, let’s get to the good stuff. Our three wines for this week, starting with the white wine, Justin Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is a great example of the diversity of soils and climates that Paso has to offer. It is a combination of tropical and citrus fruit flavors balanced with crisp acidity and minerality; a perfect aperitif and a food wine all in one. The current vintage, 2011, was a difficult year - late bud break in the Spring, uneven ripening of the grapes, a cool summer, a warm, early fall with some rain. Hands on vineyard management resulted in a great wine but much less of it. Typical of the vintage overall. This wine is 100% Sauvignon Blanc, fermented in stainless steel and aged five months is steel tanks. It is a pale straw color with green highlights, has a mix of lime, citrus, green apple and pear aromas and lemonlime, white peach and passionfruit flavors. The minerality and fresh acidity are on the finish. Think of this wine with oysters (dressing), fried foods (turkey), green bean casseroles, peas, sweet potatoes. Wine number two is the Justin Cabernet Sauvignon. I know we don’t usually think of Cabernet with turkey, but we don’t all have turkey for holiday dinners. And, if

we do, we don’t all want to drink lighter bodied wines. The most important thing to remember about Cabs from the Paso Robles AVA is they are partly big and heavy, but partly smooth and mellow. Perfect for covering a wide range of drinkers’ styles. The 2010 Justin Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully balanced with black and red fruit and spice aromas, and a bit of cedar, black currant and boysenberry flavors and a long finish with cherry candy notes and cedar. The fruits and the cedar in this wine are a result of the wet and cool growing season of the vintage. Harvest was delayed that year to let the grapes achieve a better degree of ripeness. The wine was fermented in stainless steel and aged in American oak for 18 months. Over the years that I have enjoyed this Cab, I have noticed vintage differences, but the wine is always one of my favorites. Turkey, duck, game birds, even seafood all taste better with this wine. And, with the weight of a Cab, your sauces can be as intense as you like. Finally, for dessert, or maybe just with coffee after all this food, we have Justin Obtuse. With our first two wines, the winery’s habit of naming their wines with geometry terms isn’t apparent. For those of you who know it, Justin Isosceles is a blend that is really good and one for which they are sought out. Justin Obtuse is their late harvest Cabernet, a fortified, port style wine. This wine is also from the 2010 vintage, deep red colored with ripe black cherry, dried plum and fig aromas, dark berries, chocolate and sweet raspberry jam flavors, all with soft tannins. Just imagine this wine after a great dinner. So, now we have our set of holiday dinner wines, just in time! The Sauvignon Blanc is $12.99, the Cabernet is $22.99, and the Obtuse, in a half bottle, is $12.99. Each of these wines is truly better than its price and worthy of any dinner. And, isn’t that what we’re all looking for? Enjoy.

the island news | october 25-30, 2012 |

DIRECTIONS 1. Put the flour, eggs and panko in three separate bowls. Season the cutlets with salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess, then dip in the eggs and coat thoroughly with the panko, pressing lightly to adhere. 2. In each of two large skillets, heat 1/4 cup canola oil. Add the chicken and cook over moderately high heat, turning once, until golden and crispy, about 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a paper towel-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.

3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter and cook over moderately high heat until browned and nutty, about 4 minutes. Stir in the capers, lemon juice and parsley; spoon over chicken and serve. *Panko crumbs can be found in the ethnic aisle of most grocery stores. *Don’t have a meat mallet? Hey, do what I do. Use a heavy pan, but cover the chicken with parchment paper first. Add a salad of Spring Lettuce Greens, some nuke-in-the bag French Green Beans (Publix) and dinner is served! Enjoy!

How Fido feels about Halloween BowWOW!

By Tracie Korol

When my son was tiny, Halloween was a perplexing time when grown-ups decorated with squash, when Mom fussed around making something in the basement and shortly thereafter fussed around dressing him up in bunchy strange clothes. Then, one night, for no reason, Mom stuffed him into the bunchy clothes and took him to the neighboring houses wherein the inhabitants gave him candy. What a great idea! Why aren’t we doing this every day? Later, as he grew older Halloween became a time of shared conspiracy in creating the perfect costume, competing with friends for the weirdest and coolest, testing a mother’s creativity and facility with foam rubber. Our neighborhood decorated and dressed for Trick or Treat night with costumed parents accompanying their costumed kids. The Halloween frenzy grew to the point where the neighborhood dogs were hobbling around wearing buns, skirts and wings. Our dog, Dave, who had a look of benign misery most of the time anyway, looked more despondent than usual on Halloween night and all we did was gel his topknot to look punk. To costume a dog is to deny his essential dogness. Deep within your dog’s chromosomes is the inherent sense of wolf behavior. In a wolf community, one animal may “stand over” another, placing his body on or close to another as a communication, a scolding. To a dog, the experience of being bound into a Yoda suit does not elicit festivity, more, the uncomfortable feeling of

Sure, I’ll feel bunchy and uncomfortable for about a minute. Here’s another way of looking at what your costumed dog may feel.

Make sure he can move freely without clunking into furniture or snagging on branches. Make sure his outfit doesn’t make noise, tinkle, clank or rustle. A white stripe down the back of a black dog masquerades him as a skunk, black stripes on an orange dog can masquerade him as a tiger or a little hair gel can turn your Bedlington into a camel. All lowkey efforts that will afford him his safety and his dignity. Not unlike my son at age 2, your dog does not understand that Halloween is YOUR holiday, not his. Wearing a sweater in the winter keeps him warm; wearing something that makes him look like a Kit-Kat bar or an armadillo is humiliating.
