The starving student Why some college students have to choose between buying textbooks or going hungry food pantries have increased. “I don’t think we had that type of situation 10 years ago,” she said. Jane Jakubczak, a university coordinator of nutrition services, told The New York Times "students experience a lot of stress and anxiety over where their next meal is coming from." According to the San Jose Mercury News, a new University of California survey has found that nearly 1 in 5 of its students had gone hungry in the past year. Additionally, 23 percent were reported to be food-insecure. In response to the rising number of food-insecure students, more than 300 colleges nationwide have created food pantries, according to The Times. Some schools are stocked through cash donations and others acquire grocery-store food that is close to an expiration date. NPR's Planet Money team found students at Norwalk Community College are often faced with the decision to buy food or textbooks, so the school set up a pantry to help. But it found some students were embarrassed to take

advantage of the free food. "In order to encourage students to get over guilt and shame, there are almost no requirements to use the pantry. You just have to be a student. The school does marketing campaigns, fliers, emails, educational lectures," NPR reported. "When the pantry started, four or five students came in a day. Now it's 15 or 20." With the average cost of textbooks being around $500 to $1,000 each semester, many students argue this extra cost added on to already expensive tuition rates makes it difficult to live and attend school, according to the Daily Dot. It is also difficult for college students to work full-time and balance a

school schedule. To avoid becoming strapped for food or cash, prospective students and their parents should consider the cost of food and other basic living expenses when exploring their options on where and when to go to college, according to an article in the Deseret News. "Many schools have net price calculators that go beyond tuition, room and board to include transportation, textbook costs and other expenses," the article stated. To handle those extra expenses, students should establish a budget "to manage costs, covering everything from the expense of fixing a broken laptop to the cost of furnishing a dorm."w

With the world of HBO Go at your fingertips, it's naturally a little intimidating. Fear not! Here’s a small list of initial choices you should check out. Remember, it’s not TV, it’s HBO.


Courtly intrigue, clashing armies, and ruthless scheming; dragons and dark magic; nudity, brutal violence and bloody gore. Game of Thrones, the television adaption of George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy novels, would never be able to succeed on any other network besides HBO. Rocking a budget of $6–10 million per

episode, depending on the season, Game of Thrones, with its wide ensemble of memorable characters and spectacular set pieces, is truly a television extravaganza. Set in a fictional realm resembling the Middle Ages, the show chronicles the violent civil war between several noble families. Heroes will be outmaneuvered and characters you find yourself rooting for might meet tragic ends. With six seasons consisting of 10 episodes each, it should be pretty easy for you to catch up.

The starving student is becoming a reality, well beyond the stereotypical college student living off ramen noodles. According to a new report by NASPA: Student Affairs Professionals in Higher Education, there has been a rise in the number of student requests to stock food pantries and hand out vouchers for supplies at campus bookstores. Forty-seven percent of students requested campus vouchers and 45 percent requested food pantries. For the report, NASPA analyzed 523 universities and surveyed financial-aid directors. Seventy-five percent of participants said their schools incorporated emergency-aid programs to reduce the dropout rate. Most said they were overwhelmed by the requests for these financial aid programs and needed better resources. Amelia Parnell, an author of the report, told The Atlantic that as the cost of higher education is rising, students are becoming less financially stable and specific types of aid such as

Statesboro, meet your Eagles The Tattler introduces the offensive players of this year's team Last week, we started previewing the 2016 edition of the Georgia Southern Eagles by looking at what the coaching staff led by rookie head coach Tyson Summers will bring to the table. This week, we’ll turn to the offense. Alex Everything on the offense starts with the quarterback position, so we’ll start there too. Once again, we’ll enter the season with seniors Kevin Ellison and Favian Upshaw battling for the job. Ellison has held the starting role for the majority of the last three seasons, but it was Upshaw who finished last season strong with solid performances in the last few regular season games and capped it off with a career performance in the GoDaddy Bowl against Bowling Green. Neither guy has been named starter at this point for the 2016 season, and I have a feeling they will both see plenty of playing time early on. Having two experienced and talented senior quarterbacks — who are both fully capable of leading the offense to some big time numbers — is not a bad problem to have. Much like last year, I think the coaching staff will likely go with the guy with the hot hand at the time. If the offense sputters a bit, change it up and bring in the other. I’m perfectly comfortable with either one of these guys running the offense, so the quarterback position is not a concern for me. The quarterback may be the field general, but the success of the offense is really determined up front with the offensive line. Senior center Andy Kwon is a first-team, preseason, all-conference selection and will lead the battle in the trenches. Jeremiah Culbreth, who started the last 11 games last season at left tackle as a true freshman, will return for his sophomore campaign. Junior Tommy

Boynton started all 13 games at right tackle last season. As a whole, the rest of this group is pretty young. But that doesn’t mean they aren’t capable of getting the job done; it just means we’ll have to wait and Brown see. Kwon, Culbreth and Boynton have proven themselves on the field and will be leaders the inexperienced guys can lean on. And those guys get their shot now. Running behind the O-line is a stable of running backs I would put up against almost any in the country. Senior Matt Breida burst onto the scene with a 61-yard touchdown gallop early in the 2014 season

opener at North Carolina State and has been leaving defenders in his dust ever since. Breida has earned first-team all-conference honors in both of the last two seasons and accumulated over 3,000 yards rushing during his sophomore and junior seasons. He averages 8.3 yards per carry for his career (which is just insane) and has rushed for 123 yards per game and scored 17 touchdowns in each of the last two years. But he’s far from a one-man show. Junior L.A. Ramsby is the thunder to Breida’s lightning as he has been called on to earn the tough yards over the last couple of seasons. Ramsby has rushed for over 1,500 yards, scored 25 touchdowns and averages nearly five yards per carry during his first two years at Southern. And just when you think the numbers those two guys have put up over the last two years is impressive, the Eagles can trot out Wesley Fields. As a true freshman last season, all Fields did was put up 682 rushing yards (52.5 YPG), score seven rushing touchdowns, catch four passes for 105 yards and a touchdown, and average 7.5 yards every time he touched the ball — as the third string back. Did I mention he was a true freshman last year? The wide receiver position at Georgia Southern has never been quite as glamorous as it may be at some other places. An Eagle wide receiver

has to be selfless. They have to be able to block. They have to be tough. But they have to be able to make plays when the ball comes their way. And I believe Georgia Southern has a group that can do all of the above this year. Led by senior BJ Johnson — who broke his collarbone but missed just four games before returning late in the season last year (I wasn’t kidding when I called them tough) — this group should be fun to watch. Georgia Tech transfer and Statesboro native Mike Summers, junior Myles Campbell, seniors Montay Crockett and Keigan Williams, and a group of talented freshmen with high expectations will be able to stretch the field and help this offense put up some big numbers once again this year. The skills of the players returning gives me hope for more high-scoring, explosive performances by this Eagle offense. My only concern is this: How much of those video game-like stats over the last couple of years can be attributed to coaching? Willie Fritz and Doug Ruse were great offensive-minded coaches. I’m not doubting the new coaching staff at all. I’m simply saying that we don’t know. But here’s what I do know. If I were an offensive coach at Georgia Southern, I’d be pretty excited about the guys I’m putting on the field in 2016.w

Boro theater season preview: Fall 2016

on East Main Street for large-scale, traditional performances; and the Mical Whitaker Black Box, located down the block on West Main Street in the Center for Performing Arts, for smaller and more intimate productions. You’re likely to see a great show in either venue, so check out their scheduled performances.

THE AVERITT CENTER FOR THE ARTS 33 East Main Street The Averitt Center is Statesboro’s venue for community theater — emphasis on Not only is this the place you’re most likely to see familiar local faces on the stage — including your accountant, school principal or your kid’s teacher — but the theater itself has built up its own family of actors, educators, creative thinkers and arts enthusiasts. At the Averitt Center, you’re just as likely to see a revived classic like The Importance of Being Earnest as you are a family-friendly musical like Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Oliver! Occasionally, the Averitt Center will push the envelope with something a little more scandalous, such as Heartbreaks and Hallelujahs and Sordid Lives. They also bring in out-of-town acts for one-night-only events, which can run the gamut from live music, improv comedy and spoken word artists. The Averitt Center for the Arts has two performance venues: the historic Emma Kelly Theater

SEASON PREVIEW PICK: Arsenic and Old Lace, by Tim Firth; Oct. 14–16 Getting engaged is stressful enough; getting engaged right after your dear sweet aunts have started murdering old men for kicks is even worse. Mortimer Brewster is at his wits' end trying to juggle his delightfully deranged relatives, and hijinks worthy of the Addams Family ensue. The script is sparkling with humor, and in the hand of the Averitt STARS and director Lisa Abbott, this show is sure to be a Halloween treat. TICKETS: $15 for non-members

The performances always look stunning on the PAC’s wide stage and the venue’s effects make each show sharp and professional. It’s a great place for quality entertainment, bringing in the kind of acts you won’t find elsewhere in town. The only catch is that most of its shows are one-night-only affairs, so you want to make sure to grab a seat before they sell out. If you’re a GSU student, those seats are only $10 — more affordable than a movie ticket plus popcorn. SEASON PREVIEW PICK: The Drifters If you love rock and roll and R&B, you'll love this class act. The Drifters were the first African American group to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and they are making a historic reunion tour in support of their new album.

'Jason Bourne' fails to justify its existence THIS WEEK


EAGLES NEST #1 GSU Sports show

WATCH NEW Every Thursday with Josh Aubrey! Available 24/7 at! Also available on your mobile device!

Brought to you by:

“I remember everything” — a revelatory phrase that ends up meaning less than it should when our titular hero says it at the beginning of Jason Bourne. It’s been nearly a decade since Matt Damon made an onscreen appearance as the amnesiac assassin; however, what was once an intriguing cipher — full of vulnerability and internal strife — is now a caricature burdened with a convoluted backstory fueled by daddy issues. For a man who now remembers everything, Bourne is blander than ever before. The world-weary Bourne is brought back into the fray when former CIA employee Nicky Parsons (Julia Stiles, the only other returning character), enlists his help to shed light on yet another government black ops program. Their adversaries include the current corrupt CIA director Robert Dewey (a grumpy Tommy Lee Jones), a super-assassin with a personal grudge (an underutilized Vincent Cassel) and ambitious government ladder-climber Heather Lee (Alicia Vikander). Although we’ve seen the corrupt federal official and the opposing superspy on multiple occasions beforehand, Vikander’s morally ambiguous Heather Lee is the first to offer something new and interesting to the series. Her shifting loyalties and eye for director Dewey’s position creates an interesting interoffice struggle between the two that’s occasionally more captivating than the Bourne antics. Replacing character and plot for topicality, the geopolitical spy thriller tackles the tug-of-war issue between the safety mass surveillance offers and the right for individual privacy — packaged with dated references to Snowden, a Mark Zuckerberg-esque public figure (Riz Ahmed) and a story overstuffed with headshaking contrivances. Returning with Damon is director Paul Greengrass, whose famous fast-editing and shaky-cam style in The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum conveyed a frantic urgency to the plot and its characters. Sadly, they were unable to bring back screenwriter Troy Gilroy, who was involved with all four of


Jason Bourne is back in all his brooding angst, but the premise has worn thin in this forgettable installment of the Bourne franchise. the previous films. Jason Bourne might still contain the exciting fever-rush of rapid edits and kinetic cuts, but it lacks a solid story to tether it all together. That’s not to say that the movie is without its merits. Jason Bourne delivers all the signature set-pieces the franchise is known for: cat-and-mouse pursuits in European cities, brutal brawls with government assassins ending with a MacGyver improvisation, and a third act car chase resulting in widespread wreckage. What was once considered innovative, is now a diminishing return for the formulaic franchise, but it’s still good fun to watch. These elaborate, action-packed splendors definitely help in subsiding your disinterest from the overstretched plot and thin characters. The first half contains a riveting motorcycle escape amidst violent, political riots in Athens, Greece. The globetrotting affair finally concludes with a bombastic sequence of vehicular carnage on the roads of Las Vegas, leaving viewers in awe of the spectacle, but likely conflicted on whether it alone was worth the price of admission. Bourne might have regained his memories, but it won’t be surprising, if months from now, audiences will have trouble recalling this forgettable addition to the franchise.w

Your cheat sheet for coffee shop studying You need to know two important things when you start school in a new community: where all of your classes are and where you can get a good cup of coffee. Lucky for you, Statesboro — despite its size — has a surprising number of coffee shops, and your friendly neighborhood newspaper editor is a caffeine addict who has spent unreasonable amounts of time at all of them. This handy guide is here to help you find your perfect off-campus caffeinated escape.

Cool Beanz Espresso Bar

Located downtown on East Main Street, this coffee shop is cute as





Where: 714 Northside Dr. East Drinks Price Range: $1.98–$4.95 Medium Coffee: $2.25

Where: 124 Savannah Ave. Drinks Price Range: $1.50–$4.50 Medium Coffee: $1.75

Where: 441 South Main Street, Suite 1A Drinks Price Range: Menu not found online

can be. With exposed brick walls and artwork by local painters, Cool Beanz is designed to help you tap into your creative well for all those essays you need to write. You won't find any drip coffee here: only french-pressed brew and manual pours. The owner and barista, David Hoyle, is friendly and conversational, and coffee enthusiasts will be pleased by the quality and attention the staff pays to each cup. Patrons usually can get a cup of coffee made from beans Hoyle has roasted himself, and bags of houseroasted beans are available to take home. Cool Beanz also shares the space with CAKE Bakery, which has a rotating menu of creative cupcakes with slap-you-down amazing icing. It also has a light breakfast and lunch menu, offering quiches, wraps and sandwiches. The Perks: Cool Beanz offers an intimate space, with two chairs per small circular table. This means that any crowd taking over the venue is going to have to be a small one, keeping things quiet and peaceful for a long writing session. Georgia Southern students get an added perk with the WiFi: Cool Beanz is right next to City Campus, meaning that students with a valid ID can hop on the university's network without leaving their seats. The Breaks: Between the coffee and the pastries, you can rack up quite a tab. Not because it’s much more expensive than the other local shops, but because it’s incredibly addicting. Like, “shut up and take my money” addicting. Don’t

say we didn’t warn you.


“But wait,” you say. “Isn’t this a drive-thru coffee place?” Yes, it is, but it also has several tables and chairs outside on a little patio. Right now, Ellianos is a great place to get a quick fix for cold, specialty drinks like ice coffees and smoothies. Once fall rolls around, the Ellianos patio will be a perfect place to crack open your books. Thanks to its outdoor isolation, there is very little around to distract you. The Perks: You can educate yourself, caffeinate yourself and enjoy your recommended dose of Vitamin D, all in the same location. The Breaks: Because it’s a drive-thru venue, there isn’t any indoor seating. You're at the mercy of the weather, so keep an eye on the sky.


Say what you will about major corporate takeover, but Starbucks wins major points for consistency. Its coffee tastes the same from East to West, so if you’re far from home and looking for a familiar flavor, Starbucks is the place to go (not to mention that they did steal the Best Coffee category in this year’s Boro Awards). The Starbucks on Northside Drive has plenty of tables perfect for spreading out a textbook, and it also has comfy leather chairs and outdoor

seating made for curling up with your English homework. The Perks: Starbucks has a great selection of syrups and flavoring to jazz up your coffee, so you can get crazy and creative with your order. Google the Starbucks Secret Menu for different drink ideas. As long as you bring in the recipe, the baristas should be happy to whip up a special concoction for you. (But please, do bring in the recipe. Don't be that person.) The Breaks: Because it’s a nationally recognized chain, Starbucks gets a lot of traffic. During certain parts of the day you might have to tune out a crowd while you’re trying to cram for an upcoming test.

Three Tree Coffee Roasters

Though this roasting outfit has been in Statesboro for a few years, it didn't open its coffee shop until this time last year. Now it's a favorite haunt of students looking for the room to spread out their books and settle down for long study sessions. Outlets abound, the tables are spacious, and the playlist is quiet and conducive to studying. They have a second-floor "treehouse" if you're craving a little more atmosphere, and a shaded patio where they sometimes have live music on Friday nights. Thanks to partnerships with local businesses Sugar Magnolia and 4 and 20 Bakers, they also have a delectable assortment of treats available all day, and lunch options from noon to 2 p.m. The Perks: Three Tree has a clearly stated social justice mission that goes hand in hand with their business goals, so your coffee tastes a little sweeter just for knowing you're helping someone do some good in the world. The Breaks: The parking lot of the complex in which Three Tree is located is awful, and it fills up quickly. It's not Three Tree's fault, but when more businesses eventually move into the complex, you might have to jockey for parking, walk or carpool.w

The Daily Grind

You can't get a cozier atmosphere than the one in The Daily Grind, Statesboro’s longest-running coffee shop. Natural lighting, dark wooden furniture and a few comfortable armchairs around a fireplace make this venue seem like a quaint English pub. The drinks are affordable and delicious, coming in a wide variety of mixes and flavors, and the WiFi is free. The laid-back, communal atmosphere is perfect for encouraging productivity. The Perks: In addition to coffee, pastries and sandwiches, The Daily Grind sells ceramics made by local artists, T-shirts and other locally made products. When you need to look away from your notes for a minute, there are plenty of items to browse. The Breaks: The Daily Grind is really popular amongst people in the community, so there can be quite a bit of talking going on. Study space can be limited during the lunch hour if you aren’t planning on eating, as The Daily Grind asks people to leave the tables open for those dining in. The best solution to this dilemma is to become a diner and order their chicken salad sandwich, which is, according to reliable sources (full disclosure: shameless eavesdropping), the bomb.

THEATER, from page 9 am not exaggerating when I say that they are an exceptional group of actors. Under the direction of Lisa Abbott and Nick Newell, the CAT’s shows consistently defy expectations for student productions, with an incredible ability to shock and amaze. Because they are a college group, the directors are able to take on more challenging, controversial shows that other venues might shy from, and they turn those scripts into award-winning performances. They just returned from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the world's largest performing arts festival, where they staged their original devised theater show, DO NOT OPEN!, for audiences from around the world.

Departure," an unexplained rapture where 140 million people, 2 percent of the world's population, abruptly disappears. This seismic, chilling event is given no explanation — is it biblical, religious or scientific? The show, set in a world dealing with the fallout of the “sudden departure,” explores thought-provoking themes of existentialism and nihilism. SILICON VALLEY

Silicon Valley, a show about the exploits of six men who found a startup company, moves effortlessly between filthy jokes and vulgar punchlines to dry observations and witty remarks. Silicon Valley utilizes both high-brow and low-brow humor and sticks it in a blender, creating its own unique style.w SEASON PREVIEW PICK: She Kills Monsters, Qui Nguyen Maybe it's my inner nerd talking, but this play looks like pure, concentrated fun. After Agnes' sister Tilly dies, Agnes gets a secret look at her sister when she finds Tilly's Dungeons and Dragons notebook. Agnes plunges headfirst into her sister's imaginary world of the game and ends up embarking on her own harrowing adventure. I don't know what I'm most excited about: the fantastic set pieces this show will demand, the refreshing premise or the kick-ass female character at the center of the show. This sort of fantastic, mythical challenge is perfect for the CAT performers, and I have no doubt that this show will be one for the books. TICKETS: $5 for Georgia Southern students, $10 for community patrons.w

Skip the gap — we've got the island Explore the unspoilt splendor of Cumberland Island Though I haven’t really been alive that long at 21 years of age, I’ve found that there are places in this world that, for some reason, you just can’t help coming back to. They’ve entranced you, somehow, and you never get tired of them. For me, a lot of those places lie out west, in the mountains of Colorado or the deserts of New Mexico — but not all. There are a few places in my native state of Georgia that keep pulling me back in. One of those places is Cumberland Island National Seashore. I first visited in fifth grade, back when schools still did field trips, and I loved it. This wasn’t just an afternoon thing but a whole weekend which, to a fifth-grader, means “the greatest adventure of my life yet.” Mostly, I was excited to see the horses. Though I was what my family might call a raging tomboy, I did not escape the little girl’s fascination with all things equine. Cumberland is one of several Atlantic barrier islands with a feral horse herd, and I

Nathaniel Greene but was only occupied after his death by his wife and her second husband, Phineas Miller. The Millers established a plantation on Cumberland and built a mansion, which would be the second Dungeness. The 1880s brought new owners to Cumberland: the Carnegie family. Thomas Carnegie, the brother and business partner of the famous steel tycoon, built a third Dungeness modeled after a Scottish castle. The Carnegies left the island as a result of the Great Depression and the family turned it over to the National Park Service in 1971. It was declared a National Seashore in the following year.


Tips for those who want to see it all: The Carnegie’s mansion

burned down in the 50s, but the shell remains and is called “the Ruins.” The feral horse herd that roams the island likes to spend time there thanks to the spring in the field nearby. The park service gives them minimal care, but they are wild animals, not pets. That being said, they are used to visitors and will allow you to get reasonably close before snorting and galloping away. Also nearby is a small walled cemetery containing the marker of Revolutionary War general “Lighthorse” Harry Lee, though his body was reinterred in Virginia in the early 1900s next to his son, Robert E. Lee. Access to the marsh boardwalks is just down the hill, and they will eventually lead you to the 18 mile-long beach. Only two and a half hours from Statesboro, Cumberland has something to offer everyone. It saw me through my horse phase, my middle school history phase and provided some much-needed relaxation on subsequent high school and college age trips. Whatever my interests at all the various times in my life, Cumberland has never disappointed me. So whatever draws you — whether it’s the history, the wildlife, or the pristine beauty of a place that has seen hundreds of years of history yet still seems untouched — I bet you’ll find what you’re looking for.

The island has Kenley Alligood a staggering 50 miles of walking trails winding through arching, shady maritime forests full of Spanish moss. Armadillos and other wildlife scurry among the sawtooth palmetto that makes up the underbrush, and the occasional deer may dash through. The winding paths will also take you to the salt marshes, which are literally teeming with plant and animal life.

A picture of a Cantor's giant softshell turtle. Katherine and her partner think it's more likely that she helped a Florida softshell turtle off the road that day — but it's still fun to consider the alternative.

‘Whatever it was we moved off of the street that morning, I was so surprised by it that I couldn’t even classify the creature, and that sense of confusion and wonder when approaching another living species is hard to come by in this day and age.’ Katherine Fallon, Connect's resident Overthinker

Later that night, my partner, who had never seen me fixate so wholly on any one thing and who is far better at Googling than I am, did some research. Turns out I had mostly likely encountered a Florida softshell turtle, which are native, sometimes live in ditch creeks, and apparently are very common water turtles. Although this is obviously the only explanation that makes any real sense, I still maintain that the photograph of the Cantor’s softshell turtle is a far more accurate depiction of the creature that my neighbor and I helped across the street.

seemed to melt together, lacking definition or shadow. The Florida softshell turtle is darker, and greener in color, appearing to be covered with algae, and its neck is too long and upright, like that of a brontosaurus. But whatever it was we moved off of the street that morning, I was so surprised by it that I couldn’t even classify the creature, and that sense of confusion and wonder when approaching another living species is hard to come by in this day and age. For people like me, who fall asleep to David Attenborough documentaries and spend their spare time in natural history museums or studying the most obscure of deep sea creatures, encountering an unimaginable species is not unlike experiencing something supernatural: It was frightening, and magnetic, and consuming. Such discovery forces the mind to open. That these magnificent, bizarre animals exist naturally in the weedstrewn drainage ditches that run aside most major roads here in Statesboro is nothing short of miraculous to me. That I held him, and he remained peaceful in my hands, was otherworldly. I’ve heard rumors that he is alive and well, still frequenting the grounds of the country club. I look for him every time I drive past there, but I am looking for other surprises, too: a further glimpse into the hidden, living world, a peek behind that veil.w

LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) — Emotions will surface, causing problems at home if you aren't cognizant of what those around you want. Do your best to please others without ignoring your needs.

Holli Deal Saxon TROLL ALERT — A Glen Oaks Drive man said his son reportedly won a $400 prize from an online game called “Steam” (likely the gaming distribution platform). Another person associated with the game threatened to “SWAT” the man’s son, meaning he would prank him by calling in a false emergency and causing a SWAT team to arrive at the home. The offender also ordered $90 worth of pizza from Pizza Hut and had it delivered to the man’s house. THAT'S NOT HOW METH WORKS — A Shuman Road woman told deputies a man who had just been

released from jail and with whom she was arguing said he was going to “smoke enough ice to explode his heart.” The man told deputies that he and the woman argued because she was having an affair. Deputies found that he had several firearms, despite being a convicted felon, as well as methamphetamine in his vehicle. He was arrested.
