CAR SHOOTING — Over homecomig weekend, a woman told police she was driving with three passengers on Veteran’s Memorial Parkway near Lanier Drive when someone shot her car. Police noted several bullet holes in the car. The only description the victim had was the shots came from a dark car. MORE GUNFIRE — A man reported hearing a gunshot near Cambridge-at-Southern the Friday before homecoming. He told police he saw someone holding their leg afterward, but police found no suspects. ARMED ROBBERIES — In the wee hours of Homecoming Day, a man said two unknown men, one

black male and one white male, stole his wallet and cell phone as well as a woman’s cell phone near University Pointe Apartments. At Campus Evolution Village around the same time (1:45 a.m.), three victims told police three unknown males exited a car and attacked them. They also damaged property belonging to the victims. The next day at Campus Evolution, a man said a black male and white male approached him and demanded cash. Yet another armed robbery Sunday occurred at Cambridgeat-Southern, around noon. A man told police three men robbed him at gunpoint, taking several unlisted items.w

8 Shari Barr and her granddaughter Grace Stanfield stand as the Beaver House's resident ghosts in last year's Ghost Tours by Lantern Light. This year's tour will revisit the Beaver House and eight other local venues for spine-tingling storytelling experience.

Vince Garrett

Ghost tours highlight Statesboro's spooks There's more to Statesboro than meets the eye. At least, that’s the story that The Averitt Center is hoping to tell with this year's Ghost Tours by Lantern Light. This Halloween tradition has been taking place for four years and takes patrons on a journey into the dark and creepy underbelly of Statesboro's history. Over the course of about 45 minutes, tourists venture to different sites around downtown Statesboro and hear the history behind nine local venues, which seem to have activities much too strange to explain away with human errors or simple mistakes. Eileen Bayens is the President of the Averitt STARS, the acting troupe who bring these stories to life each year. According to Bayens, there are records and reports to back up each story which is being told on the tour. The records, reports and historical documents are collected, organized and then transformed into portrayals of local characters and stories in a mixture of history and improvisation. Among the logistical preparations made for this event, Bayens contacted the businesses she would use as stops on the tour. Some businesses allow the tour during their business hours and others gave their whole building over to the Averitt Center, allowing full use of the facilities to create more complex settings for the

tours. Actors and designers bring you into the world of these characters and, in some instances, the tourists become the center of the set as action takes place around them, not just on a stage before them. Another addition to the tour is the shuttle, which will be able to take tourists back to their vehicle once the tour is over. This year's tour will begin at the new Statesboro Convention and Visitors Center. From there, the included stops are The Beaver House, The Statesboro Inn, the Chamber of Commerce building, the Holland House, the courthouse and the Emma Kelly Theater. One of the actors people can expect to see is Shari Barr. For the last four years, she has reprised the role of Mella McDougald, the Lady of the Beaver House on the tour. Barr says the Beaver House has had more than one occasion of ghost sightings reported over the last 25 years. She also believes that the similarities in description of the ghost by seven different families who stayed at the house are evidence of the ghost activity. She shared a few of the scary events that took place there, including one little girl who died right on the Beaver House lawn after falling from a tree. Since then, she has been seen around the premises lurking in unrest.


Still, patrons should know that this is not just a haunted house situation where monsters are leaping from the shadows. "The stories aren't meant to scare," said Barr, "but to give you a delicious shiver as you hear some stories from Statesboro's history." The Beaver House is just one location with a deeply scary past. The other sites on the tour have stories that are sure to make you quiver. Tour dates are Oct. 28 and

Our time has come Get ready for the first GSU v. GSU showdown gamedays as a part of those attendance numbers. That place has been depressingly empty. Getting people to show up for the game shouldn’t be an issue this Saturday when Georgia Southern comes to town. Unfortunately for Brown State, Eagle fans will likely make up an overwhelming majority of the crowd. Not only will this feel and sound like a home game for Georgia Southern, it will look like one too. Southern fans are planning to “white out” the Georgia Dome. So, for Eagle fans making the trip (and I highly encourage you to find a way to Atlanta for this one), make sure to wear white. I can’t say I have ever heard of a visiting team doing something like this, but it is a tremendous display of the support Southern has in the Atlanta area. Eagle Nation travels well anyway, but when you have the number of students and alumni from Atlanta that Georgia Southern does, it makes this a pretty easy trip for a whole pile of us. Just ask Georgia Tech. As for the game on the field, Georgia Southern is coming off a bye week which came at a good time for the Eagles. Southern had played in seven consecutive weeks, so the team probably needed a mental and physical break and will hopefully be hungry to get back on the field. And it never

attack has me a bit concerned as the Panthers average over 300 yards per game through the air. Many Georgia Southern fans are hoping — and expecting — to win this game in blowout fashion. As much as I would love to see that, I think it’s going to be a little closer than Eagle fans would like. State has taken some pretty good teams down to the wire. Just ask Lousiana-Lafayette and South Alabama. Tattler Prediction: State will move the ball and put up some points, but they won’t be able to stop Georgia Southern.

On April 17, 2008, Georgia State University announced that it would begin a football program. Since that day, Georgia Southern fans have wanted a piece of the “other GSU” on the football field. And now that time has come. The Panthers’ inaugural Alex football game was played on Sept. 4, 2010, in the Georgia Dome. They won that game over Shorter College by a score of 41-7. The Panthers would finish the 2010 season with a record of 6-5, which — putting all trash talk aside — is pretty good for any startup program in its first season. Since then, they are 5-36. Not so good. Those five wins have come over powerhouse programs in Clark Atlanta, South Alabama, Campbell, Rhode Island and Abilene Christian. Since moving to the FBS in 2013, they have three losses to FCS teams and zero wins over FBS competition. Ouch. Starting a football program from scratch is no easy task. Doing so with success despite very little support from students and alumni is nearly impossible. And Georgia State is learning both of those lessons the hard way as attendance has struggled. They are averaging 11,824 per home game this season. I’ve seen some of their crowds — they must be counting everyone who happens to be anywhere within several hundred yards of the dome on

hurts to have two weeks to prepare for an opponent— especially when you know emotions will be running high on both sidelines. Georgia State traveled to South Alabama last week and lost a 30-27 heartbreaker to the Jaguars. The Panthers’ record isn’t pretty, but they have been competitive in nearly every game this season. They held a 14-0 halftime lead at Washington before the Huskies stormed back in the second half to win 45-14. The only other lopsided loss for State was a 52-10 blowout at the hands of a pretty doggone good Arkansas State squad. The Panthers can score points. They are averaging 27 points per game and have put up at least that many in five of their seven contests. Georgia State quarterback Nick Arbuckle is a gunslinger. Honestly, their passing

"How can we turn around downtown?" Locals hope Redevelopment Powers Law will provide a solution for community growth A law on the local ballot could change the face of downtown as we know it. At least, that’s what members of the South Main Revitalization Project are saying. The members, including representatives from the city of Statesboro, GSU, the Downtown Development Authority and other city organizations, individuals and groups, are promoting the Redevelopment Powers Law. If approved locally, the law will give the city of Statesboro the authority to allocate funds to the revitalization of blighted, underdeveloped areas of town. This means that, through the use of tax allocation districts (TADs), the city could bring in new businesses, create more green spaces, build safer mixed-income housing facilities and make Statesboro a more vibrant, prosperous community, for both citizens and college students. “What we’re hoping for the students is that it’ll give them more places to shop, more places to eat, and different businesses that’ll be close to college where, if they lived in downtown, they can walk to it or kind of do any of that stuff that they could do in a walkable, bike-able community,” said Bryan Davis, who is personally and professionally supporting the Redevelopment Powers Law. The company he works for, Hendley Properties, has been a leading force in the redevelopment of the downtown residential areas. Successful TADs have been created in other cities around Georgia, including Rome, Augusta, Duluth, Marietta and – most notably – Atlanta, where the Belt Line and the Atlantic Station complex stand as the poster children for Georgia’s TAD initiatives. Your first reaction to this idea is probably “Awesome!” Your second reaction: “…What’s a TAD?”

What’s a TAD?

“TAD” stands for “tax allocation district,” a means of helping the city raise funds for revitalization projects without raising taxes for the revenue. Here’s how it works: The city would identify an area in need of redevelopment and designate it as a tax allocation district. They would then take a “snapshot” of the existing property taxes, to establish a baseline value for the area. All taxes up to that baseline would continue to be distributed citywide. If, however, new businesses were to move in or redevelopment projects were to take place and raise property values (and, therefore, taxes), the additional revenue would go into a fund from which the city could draw for other projects. Essentially, the TAD would become an area that generated its own development funds. “It will capture the growth inside that area and they [city council] would reinvest that money inside of that area,” Davis said.


This sample ballot shows the language used at the voting booths for the Redevelopment Powers Law. Statesboro citizens who want to vote for or against the local legislation can vote up until election day, Nov. 4. Extra taxes? Not exactly. That sounds like taxes are going up, doesn’t it? Davis and other proponents of the law insist that this is not the case. “You are only going to be taxed on what your property is worth, whether the TAD is there or the TAD is not there,” Davis explained. “The only thing that’s going to happen with the TAD being there is that any improvement on your property — which you’re going to be taxed on regardless — is going to go into the TAD fund to put downtown. And that’s the only difference.” Most Georgia Southern students

aren’t directly concerned with rising property values downtown, because most GSU students don’t own property in the city. But the law has bigger implications than just the numbers. Why students should care The first proposed TAD project targets the “Blue Mile”: the 1.1-mile stretch between the Statesboro courthouse and the entrances to Georgia Southern University — essentially, the length of South Main Street. By investing in the residential and commercial aspects of this area, Davis said, the law’s proponents hope to bridge the gap between the college and city

This graph explains the way a TAD functions in a community. The green bar indicates the baseline values of a TAD district — essentially, what the property is worth before the TAD goes into effect. Those property taxes continue to go to the city and school system. As new businesses or development projects come into the district, property values go up. The resulting rise in property taxes, represented by the teal area, gets reinvested into the TAD. This creates a ready fund to pull from for more development projects. Again, it's not an additional tax; property taxes will only increase if the value of the property increases as well, and all funds will be deposited right back into the community. SPECIAL

POWERS, from page 10

A TAD isn’t going to work overnight; it takes time to generate revenue for big projects, like paving the way for a new downtown grocery store (one of the ideas the South Main Revitalization Project members are batting around). The district can stay in effect for 10–20 years and generate revenue throughout that time. “The people that started in the 90s are seeing the fruits of their labor now, and everything looks really great to them. If we’re starting right now, it’ll probably be the next generation that gets to see the fruits of our labor,” Davis said. While the results of the TAD might be a big example of delayed gratification, the implications for Statesboro, Georgia Southern and the relationship between the two communities are huge. But it all hinges on the decision to pass or reject the Redevelopment Powers Law.w

SPECIAL The new venue is located in the building that used to house Van Gogh's Pizza, on Lanier Drive across from GATA Sports Bar and Grill.

Boro welcomes new venue: Club 125 With the recent closing of Rude Rudy’s and last year’s closing of the Platinum Lounge and the Primetime Lounge, the city of Statesboro is cracking down on local bars and trying to influence them to clean up their practices. In the midst of these events, there is a new venue on the horizon. Club 125 are finalizing designs and preparing for their grand opening, which they have tentatively set for Oct. 22. The former Van Gogh’s Pizza & Microbrewery is being transformed into Club 125, which will cater to multiple markets and musical preferences. The building on its own is over 6,000 square feet and includes a balcony that links to GATA Sports Bar and Grill, which can hold even more people. Christian Bennett, who locally owns Club 125 and GATA Sports Bar, spoke about the new venue’s plan to ensure the safety and security of its patrons. Bennett has over 30 years of experience running these establishments and said, “It all comes down to training.” “Everyone working here will be well trained to handle multiple situations,” Bennet said. In regards to training, Bennet listed the many forms of certifications and licensure that bartenders

and security have to have in order to work at the new club. Employees at Club 125 have no less than two separate types of certification to obtain in order to work. The owners at Club 125 are also planning to add amenities that will prevent their patrons who are of drinking age from getting behind the wheel of a car or walking home alone. They are in the process of obtaining a shuttle bus for the bar which will pick up groups of people who want to go out, bring them to the club, and return them home when their night is over. For those who drive when they go out, 125 will be working with a designated driver program that will drive you and your car home if you have been drinking. “There is no reason why a person should leave this club impaired or get into any trouble because of the many alternatives we provide,” said Bennett. Christian Bennett wouldn’t comment on what other establishments are doing wrong. Still, he is planning to open Club 125, which he boasts is big enough to match the size of any bar in coastal Georgia, with a plan of action to make the experience at Club 125 a safe one from the start.w

communities. “From Midtown Plaza to Gnat’s Landing, there are eight vacant businesses,” Davis said. “That’s one-tenth of a mile, and there are eight vacant businesses.” With the help of the TAD, Davis said, the city could cover some of the preliminary costs of redeveloping those vacant spaces for interested parties. If, for instance, a new retail store wanted to move into one of those eight vacant businesses, the TAD revenue could expand the parking lot, clean out the interior of the building, re-pave the sidewalk or knock down the empty building—whatever the new retail store might need to get started in the space. Eventually, this could lead to more places for college students to walk, shop, eat and hang out, drawing them farther away from campus and into the Statesboro community.

The cast is entirely comprised of Georgia Southern students lead by Arikka Gregory, the director of the opera program on campus. At the end of every semester, students audition for entrance into the next semester’s program. Dr. Gregory spent the summer researching operas that would fit well with the students chosen and came across these two.

She mentions that she is pleased with how the themes of the two one-act operas fit together, stating that “both shows have main characters who use deceit to manipulate the people around them for personal gain.” The students will be accompanied by Michael Braz on piano. Dr. Gregory notes that the music is a little difficult, but the ridiculous storylines add a fun element to the challenge. Students have been rehearsing since early summer and are ready to show off their hard work.w or upon entering The Clubhouse. There will be costume contests held on the 25th and the 31st during Cosmic Bowling, which starts after 9 p.m. Cosmic Bowling is directed more toward the college students with drink runners traveling up and down the lanes so guests don’t have to leave their game to visit Spike's Bar & Grill. There will also be spooky laser tag for $7 after 9 each night from October 25-31. "It's laser tag in a way that no one has done before," said Pittman. "There are a lot of dark corners in there. Imagine having your intensity that high and then having someone jump out at you." For younger guests The Clubhouse

offers the Candy Trail, which puts a spin on traditional trick-or-treating. "For $5, the guests can enjoy Ballocity and 10 stops on our candy trail," said Pittman. Stay on the lookout for more events coming from The Clubhouse, including the “Celebrity Bowling” event coming up in November. For those who have never been to The Clubhouse, there are a myriad of activities to entertain the child in all of us including laser tag, go karts, batting cages, an arcade, cosmic bowling and much more. The Clubhouse also tries to impact the environment as positively as possible from the lights to the innovative approach to digital tickets from arcade games.w

Haunted Forest returns to The Clubhouse The Clubhouse is helping to get locals in the holiday spirit by hosting a variety of Halloween themed activities as part of their Spooktacular activities. Besides all of the daily activities— including laser tag, go-karts, batting cages and bowling — Spooktacular offers the Haunted Forest. The Haunted Forest has been a Halloween tradition in Statesboro for over 20 years. The Clubhouse donated the

space behind the facilities for The Boys and Girls Club to raise funds for their organization. Admission into the Haunted Forest is just $5. "It's going to be more spooky and more creepy than ever before because of all the space available," said Shellie Pittman, the public relations and marketing coordinator for The Clubhouse. Those who are interested in visiting the Haunted Forest must sign a waiver which can be found at clubhouses-

one is going to give you a free ride. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20– Feb. 19) — Move on to a more meaningful relationship phase with friends, relatives or a lover. A deeper bond is possible if you are truthful and build a union based on trust. PISCES (Feb. 20– March 20) — Size up why you are feeling at odds with your current situation. It's time to take control of what's important and walk away from what isn't. Home improvements will be beneficial. ARIES (March 21–April 19) — You will be tempted by a unique offer. Get together with the most interesting and active people you know and make plans to have an adventurous outing. TAURUS (April 20–May 20) — You will obtain good results with sensible food choices and a sound exercise routine. Local farmers' markets and health-food stores offer many diverse options to improve your

diet. Overindulgence should be avoided. GEMINI (May 21–June 20) — If you shake things up, improve your appearance or enhance your image, your confidence will go up as well. Get involved in something new, exciting and thoughtprovoking. CANCER (June 21–July 22) — You can expect to experience worry or concern regarding children and loved ones. Do your best to keep the peace at home and avoid criticizing others. LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) — Minor strife at home will blow over soon. You should be happy with the way other situations are developing around you. Don't let anyone back you into a corner. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Ask old friends questions that will help you get a clearer picture of the way you are perceived by others. Recalling old dreams will lead to a new destination.w
