Join Main Street Statesboro at the annual Scare on the Square — this year sponsored by Zaxby's — for an evening of thrills and chills for the whole family on Halloween night, Saturday, Oct. 31, from 4:30–9 p.m. The spookiest event yet for downtown will include a hay ride, costume contests for all ages, a haunted house in Statesboro's old sanitorium, trunk-or-treating and interactive activities known as “The Pumpkin Patch” on the courthouse lawn, sponsored by Dr. Troy Lawhorn. A key aspect of the success of this event is due to Georgia Southern University and its student participation. Thanks to Dr. Brent Wolf, professor of the School of Human Ecology, he and his class have doubled the games and activities available to the community. The haunted house created and performed by the students is a ghastly, frightening experience tailored to a mature audience. The class

has also partnered with Kelly Farms for a haunted hay ride for all ages. Additionally, GSU students will have a number of engaging booths with candy and prizes for everyone to enjoy. Dress up the whole family and come downtown to participate in the costume contest at 4:30 p.m. During the contest, take a stroll down East Main to see the decorated trunk-ortreating vehicles and to receive lots candy. Don’t miss out on the annual “Thriller” Street Dance Parade, which is always a crowd favorite. This event is free and continues to grow larger each year, thanks to the many sponsors, volunteers and participants who work to make each Scare on the Square event an unforgettable night of Halloween fun. Come to the courthouse lawn to get your scare on at Scare on the Square!

The many sides and stories of 'The Raven' When asked whether he considers himself more of an artist or a storyteller, printmaker Larry Vienneau said, “I think they’re kind of the same. The first artists were probably storytellers. They were probably, back in the Paleolithic days, writing on cave walls, doing drawings that had meanings for people. Most likely, they had a story to go with it.” That narrative closely resembles his own artistic approach. Vienneau, whose series “The Raven” is on display at the Averitt Center until Nov. 14, is something of a master at marrying the visual image with a written narrative. A walk through his exhibit is like flipping through a world mythology book with only one subject, where Vienneau is both author and illustrator of the story. “The Raven” series examines the titular bird through the lens of different mythologies, religious and cultural traditions, and modern folklore and science. All done in stark, detailed black-andwhite prints, the series revives, subverts and retells stories from across the world, presenting the raven in its many different roles: trickster, god, servant to gods, pilgrim, creator, destroyer, harbinger of calamity or hope. Most of the stories in the series are fabrications written by Vienneau, who always starts with a narrative before he can really begin the accompanying image. He draws from a vast mine of world stories for inspiration, but most of the tales are of his own making. One story, for instance, draws on an Inuit tale in which Raven hears small voices crying from within a clam shell. He breaks the shell to release the creatures inside, and in doing so unleashes Humanity on the world. In Vienneau’s story, Raven is feeling lazy that day and doesn’t bother. The tale is accompanied by a sketch of the bird perched on the clam shell, preening and drowsing. In some of Vienneau’s stories, Raven is a god-figure; in others, he is a servant to Odin or some other deity; in still others, he is searching for God on his own, and either reaches his goal or comes up empty-handed. Rather than form a larger metanarrative, each piece

in “The Raven” series stands as a complete story on its own, allowing Vienneau to explore traditions and possibilities, reaching conclusions that may contradict each other, using the same character — and to reflect the great diversity of cultures that employ the raven in their mythological lexicon. But why the raven? Foxes recur in mythologies and folklore across the world; fish and deer often represent the “otherworld”; owls and bears hold spiritual significance in plenty of world traditions. With such a large cast of recurring characters, why lock onto the raven? Part of it, Vienneau said, is that ravens remind him of Alaska, where he first became intrigued by the bird. He worked with native author John Smelcer to illustrate Smelcer’s book, The Raven and the Totem (1992), which conveyed some of the stories from Inuit oral culture. An interest in the figure from the Alaskan mythology grew into a fascination with the bird itself. Several stories in Vienneau’s collection are personal accounts of his own experiences with wild ravens. Vienneau came to appreciate the raven for its intelligence — ravens are clever problem-solvers and, as readers of Poe or Game of Thrones will remember, can even learn to imitate human speech. And he loved the diversity of roles Raven played in the tales he appeared in. “I love the stories of him being a shapeshifter — being two different beings at once,” he said. “I love that he can have two sides — be kind, but also be cruel. Because we’re all like that. That’s the thing about Raven: There are a lot of parallels between humanity and the way people see Raven.” While the raven is probably most associated with Halloween thanks to Edgar Allan Poe’s poem of the same name, Vienneau’s “The Raven” series reminds viewers that there is much more to the bird — and to most things — than meets the eye. As Raven flits through his many roles and seeks his place in the bigger narrative, a viewer of the exhibit may find themselves on their own quest for meaning.w

'Calendar Girls': You've never seen this side of the Averitt Center Av e r i t t C e n t e r f o r t h e A r ts s p e C i A l e v e n t

women, especially women of a certain age, and that seems to be very well suited for the Averitt’s organization,” Dartt said. “So when I read it and realized it really has a kind of message, and also that it’s really a good acting challenge for a large number of women, I was pleased to say I would do it.” Technically, the play is a large production: It has upwards of 14 scenes with multiple, seasonal costume changes and lots (and LOTS) of props. Dartt and his wife, Brenda, have been working on the production since May — not only so they could start assembling pieces and jump straight into rehearsal, but so they had plenty of time to put the calendar together. Oh yes, you read that correctly. In addition to the Calendar Girls run Nov. 6–8, the Averitt Center is producing its very own nude calendar to accompany the production, featuring the ladies of the cast in a hilarious — but, we’ve been assured, very tasteful — variety of just-shy-of-scandalous scenarios. The calendars are available for purchase for $25. “We’re really pleased with it,” Dartt

said. “It’s a really good piece of work.” The calendar is part of the Averitt Center’s capital campaign, in which they pair their productions with other fundraising initiatives. In addition to the calendar, the production will be accompanied by a catered dinner, where groups can purchase a table and enjoy a fancy affair before the performance. But while much ado could be made over the actresses’ playful exposure, the show’s real appeal lies in its relational nature. Most actresses will tell you that compelling women’s roles are notoriously underrepresented in theater. The small pool of female-dominant productions makes it challenging for venues to match one of those plays with the talent they have on hand. Even more challenging is finding an ensemble with good chemistry. Gary Dartt says the Averitt Center’s cast is covered on both fronts. “Because these ladies are used to acting together a lot, they’re an ensemble already,” he said. “That made it much easier for us. The bigger problem we’ve had was finding men.” He added, “(The show) has some very dark moments. It has its serious moments and it has its comedy. With that variety, it’s a great challenge for the women. I think that’s why they were very interested in doing it … because they realized it has some really interesting themes in it, that it’s an acting challenge, and it’s also about women camaraderie.” Calendar Girls will run Nov. 6 at 8 p.m., Nov. 7 at 7:30 p.m., and Nov. 8 at 2 p.m. Tickets for each production are $18 for adults and $10 for youth. To order tickets or reserve a table for the Calendar Girls dinner, call the Averitt Center for the Arts box office at (912) 212-2787, or visit the box office at 33 East Main Street from 10 a.m.–5 p.m. every weekday.w

The Averitt Center for the Arts has pushed the envelope for small-town theater in the past, with productions like last year’s Sordid Lives. But their latest endeavor may well be their most daring to date, as some of Statesboro’s top community actresses bare all in Calendar Girls. Some readers may be familiar with the 2003 Helen Mirren film of the same name, but for those unfamiliar with the story: Calendar Girls, which took to the stage in 2008, follows a group of friends who rally around one of their own, a woman named Annie Clark, when her husband dies of cancer. Looking to assuage the grief by helping Annie Clark thank the hospital where her husband was treated, close friend Chris Harper suggests buying and donating a sofa for the hospital’s visitors’ lounge. But how to raise the money for the sofa? They’ll need something with a bit more bang than a bake sale. So they put together a nude calendar. The play takes off from there with an uproariously funny script, as the models deal with the fallout and fame incurred after the media picks up their gently scandalous story. But the story’s undercurrent carries elements of pain, loss and other relational difficulties, pairing the humor with a lot of heart. The Averitt Center’s production is being directed by Gary Dartt, who helmed the revival of the Statesboro favorite Driving Miss Daisy at the end of August. He was somewhat taken aback when Averitt Center director Tim Chapman approached him to direct Calendar Girls, but after he read the script, he saw the great potential this particular play had for the Averitt Center’s particular group of performers. “It’s an ensemble piece for

Mountaineers break Eagles' victory streak to stretch the lead 24-7. They got another pick that led to a touchdown in the fourth quarter, opening up a commanding 31-7 lead. Tattler Game Ball: There weren’t many offensive highlights, so let’s give the game ball to defensive lineman Jamal Brown Johnson. Johnson had eight tackles, three for loss and one sack as he spent much of the night in the App State backfield. As I said,

But Southern is at home this time around. The Bobcats are coming off a 36-18 conference win at home over South Alabama this past Saturday, Oct. 24. Texas State is 2-4 overall and 1-1 in conference play. Last season, the Eagles led the Bobcats 28-10 after three quarters, but had to hold on for dear life for a 28-25 win. Tattler Prediction: Georgia Southern plays much better at home, and Texas State has had trouble stopping anybody on defense as they average allowing 43.8 points per game. Maybe they figured something out after only allowing 18 points to USA, but the Bobcats are also on a short week and having to hit the road. Eagles 38, Bobcats 24 Time to bounce back, boys!

Appalachian State running back Marcus Cox (14) breaks through the tackle of Georgia Southern defensive end Logan Hunt (91) to score a touchdown in the second quarter of an NCAA college football game at Kidd Brewer Stadium in Boone, N.C., Thursday, Oct. 22.

Connect Statesboro 10.28.2015

Well, the streak had to end sometime. Georgia Southern’s run of 11 consecutive Sun Belt Conference wins came to an abrupt halt Thursday night in Boone, North Carolina, with a convincing 31-13 defeat at the hands of archrival Appalachian State. Alex And honestly, if you had told me before the season began that Southern would drop a conference game, this one would have been the first one I pointed to on the schedule. Like we mentioned last week, Kidd-Brewer Stadium has been a nightmare for Georgia Southern for the last 20 years. Unfortunately for the Eagles, that trend continues. The Eagles came out with guns blazing. Southern received the opening kickoff and marched down the field with ease on an eight-play, 86-yard touchdown drive. But the offense couldn’t sustain that success. Southern had trouble moving the ball for the rest of the evening — the Eagles finished with just 252 total yards of offense. If you do the math, that’s only 166 yards following that opening drive. Georgia Southern only managed 188 rushing yards after entering the game averaging 399 per game on the ground. The Eagles only tallied 13 first downs all night. Five of those came on the opening drive. The defense didn’t play poorly by any means. They just spent way too much time on the field. The offense was having trouble moving the chains and the Eagles lost the turnover battle 2-0, so those factors didn’t do the defense any favors. App State led 17-7 at halftime and got the ball to start the second half. Southern forced a 3-and-out and got the ball back, only to miss a fieldgoal attempt that would have cut the deficit to a touchdown. Instead, the margin remained at 10. The Mountaineers picked off a pass on the Eagles’ next possession and turned it into a touchdown

the defense played alright. They just kept getting put in bad situations. Antoine Williams led the Eagles with 12 tackles. Southern was without safety Matt Dobson due to injury, and linebacker Ironhead Gallon missed the first half after a targeting call in the second half of the New Mexico State game. Both were definitely missed. One of the rallying cries when Georgia Southern has suffered losses over the years has been simply “FIDO” — Forget it, drive on. That’s the family friendly, printable version, anyway. After the loss to West Virginia, head coach Willie Fritz said good teams don’t let one loss turn into two. You have to move on and focus on the next game instead of dwelling on the loss. And the next game happens very soon: Texas State comes to town for the Eagles’ second straight Thursday-night primetime game televised on ESPNU.

Charlie & the Foxtrots break out new sound Double-sided vinyl sets stage for band's first full-length album


Brittani Howell

With a streamlined lineup and a new sound, Boro-born pop group Charlie and the Foxtrots is giving a tease to their first fulllength album with the release of a double-sided single vinyl record, "Jenny Lee."

When Connect picked up with Charlie and the Foxtrots just before their Oct. 16 show in Statesboro, frontman Chas Wilson was eating nachos for breakfast. “I’m a fan of the abnormal,” he admitted. That statement could easily sum up the band and their approach to music. The Statesboro-born quintet has been known since its conception as an indie folk group, not wholly unlike Mumford and Sons — a lone representative of the genre in the midst of Statesboro’s country, funk and blues musicians. Now, two years after the release of their first EP, “Evergreen Philosophy,” the band continues to march to their own beat — although that beat now sounds considerably different. “We’ve changed our sound a lot,” Wilson said. “It’s much more pop, a little more indie, kind of more upbeat, not centered around old-school folk so much.” Once a seven-piece ensemble, the band has been whittled down to five musicians after the folk instruments — the banjo and the violin — were mostly phased out during the natural evolution of their sound. While the

folk roots are still discernible under the musical layers, Wilson described the Foxtrots’ new vibe as much more “beachy.” The result is a wholly unique conglomeration of musical elements — beach and punk, indie with a folky undercurrent — that really should not work together. But they do. Take “Jenny Lee,” the titular track on their upcoming double-sided vinyl record. With a twangy guitar overlaying a plucky banjo track and mellow percussion, the song combines discordant elements into an evocation of island sunsets, romantic boardwalks and nostalgia. They performed the song for new music site Daytrotter, along with "Netflix and Chill," which has a similar vibe with a little more sauce to go with its suggestive title. The new songs showcase just how much Charlie and the Foxtrots enjoy delivering the unorthodox and unexpected, but if their revamped sound wasn't enough, the band is taking the old-school route for their delivery: where they have released EPs in the past, their newest offering will be delivered on a seven-inch vinyl. "Jenny Lee," to be released in November, will

be a double-sided single record, featuring the title track and a song called "Gadsden, Alabama," after one of the band's favorite stops on the road. While the songs will be accessible in other formats, Wilson said releasing a vinyl felt true to the new sound. “It just seemed right," he said. "We recorded the record straight-to-tape, kind of old-school style. It’s already got that old-school sound to it, so we thought, ‘Why not put an old-school face on it as well?’ ”

The vinyl is the warm-up act to the band's goal for next year: the release of their first full-length album. It also serves as a sort of dividing line between the band's periods of growth: "Before 'Jenny Lee' " and "After 'Jenny Lee', " if you will. Wilson said this would be the band's first fully cohesive offering to the world. “Before, our (EPs) had been kind of an assimilation of different writing styles, different sounds," Wilson said. "Our full-length is very much one sound, so I’m pretty pumped about that — for our full-length to have a specific, 'This is the Foxtrots, this is what we sound like,' and have that be the precedent for what comes next.” Those who became Foxtrot fans for their folky sound may be jarred by the band's new direction, but that may just be a cross they have to bear. "If they like it, they like it; if they don’t, they don’t," Wilson said. "But that’s who we are now.” "Jenny Lee" is available for pre-order on the band's website, charlieand For a first listen to their new music, check out their Oct. 20 Daytrotter session on the Daytrotter website.w

Well, that’s an exaggeration. He hasn’t TOLD us that he hasn’t been doing his homework, but we don’t see how he gets any of it done when he’s so busy reviewing Netflix features for us.

Beasts of No Nation

Brought to you exclusively By:

912.871-6501 www.southerndowns

Netflix reasserts its dominance and supremacy of all other streaming services by releasing their first original feature film, Beasts of No Nation, an unnerving piece depicting the recruitment and life of a child soldier. The film was directed, produced and written by Cary Joji Fukunaga and is based on the 2005 novel of the same name by Uzodinma Iweala. The film features Idris Elba as a nameless African commandant who manipulates and indoctrinates children into committing savage war crimes. Elba darkly twists his natural charisma and magnetism when portraying The Commandant. Masquerading as a father figure to his young charges, The Commandant is evil incarnate — brutal and grotesque in his actions, yet alluring and powerful in his appearance and demeanor. Although Elba’s sinister performance is definitely Oscar-worthy and a highlight of the film, he avoids overshadowing Ghanaian child actor Abraham Attah, who plays the main protagonist, Agu. Attah, in his debut acting role, gives a performance that demands the audience’s complete attention. He portrays Agu’s descent into savagery with heartbreaking conviction. A captive to the multiple atrocities that he both witnesses and committs under The Commandant, Agu’s journey of abuse


Idris Elba dominates Netflix's "Beasts of No Nation," directed by Cary Fukunaga, as the charismatic but terrifying Commandant. is gut-twisting and painful to watch. Beautifully shot and directed, Beasts of No Nation is an unsettling depiction of the hell that thousands of children living in Uganda, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Myanmar and other countries find themselves trapped in every year.

Thoughts and Prayers Just when Amazon Prime and Hulu attempt to find their footing with their own original programming — which is usually hit-or-miss — Netflix shoves them back down into the dirt like a bully at an elementary schoolyard by releasing Thoughts and Prayers, a one-hour comedy special featuring Anthony Jeselnik. For those unfamiliar with his two previous specials, Jeselnik is a standup comedian who finds immense satisfaction in being a villain, delivering dark, offensive one-liners with a devilish smirk. Stand-up comedy and political correctness have never mixed

well, and with Jeselnik onstage, the latter is practically nonexistent. His jokes aren’t for everyone; there’s a strong possibility that they might hit a nerve with your sensibilities instead of tickling your funny bone. But for those who appreciate gallows humor, Jeselnik’s jokes are just as funny as ever. His haughty and smug demeanor practically provokes God himself to strike lightning at him. However, there’s more than just shock value at work: There’s a sharp cleverness to his joke structure that’s noticeably apparent. Most of Jeselnik’s material is pretty detached, offering little personal information about himself. However, the last third of his act shifts towards a memorable recount of his personal experiences with censorship, offering his perspective on some recent controversial decisions he made while on social media. Throughout Thoughts and Prayers, Jeselnik adapts the persona of Satan, and with each laugh, he steals a little more of your soul.w

Halloween metal music at Bigshow’s goes bump in the night Coastal Rock Productions is bringing a treat to the Boro Halloween night with a heavy metal/rock concert, “Burger Joint Ritual II: Attack of the Double Patty Melts from Hell!” We’re not entirely sure what that means, but it sounds REALLY intense. The concert, which opens at Bigshow’s Burgers and Bar at 7 p.m., features five bands: Pridemeat; Awaken the Dawn, out of Savannah; The Knights of No Regret, hailing from Statesboro; Between Symmetries, a Savannah-based metal punk-grunge outfit; and Motion Theatre, all the way from southern West Virginia. The overall goal of the night seems to be to melt people’s faces off with music. If that sounds like your kind of scene, head to Bigshow’s at 7 p.m. Halloween night. Tickets at the door are $5.

Savannah ghost stars in new opera To celebrate National Opera Week, which runs from Oct. 23–Nov. 2, the Savannah Voice Festival has teamed up with several area nonprofits, musical ensembles and businesses to commemorate the occasion with some unforgettable performances. Undoubtedly, the most sensational addition to the event line-up is the staging of a contemporary opera, specially commissioned by the Savannah Voice Festival and VOICExperience, which will see the return to the stage of world-renowned baritone and SVF cofounder Sherrill Milnes as “ghost tour guide” in his celebratory 80th birthday year and 50th anniversary of his debut at the Metropolitan Opera. Alice Ryley will debut during Halloween weekend, which is fitting given the opera’s deliverance of a woeful ghost story peppered with murder, passion and history. The show, which will premiere at Savannah’s historic Charles H. Morris Center, centers on the tragic story of Alice Ryley, an Irish indentured servant in the 1700s who, along with her lover, is accused of killing her master. The production begins with a tonguein-cheek introduction by Milnes, playing the part of tour guide and inviting the audience to climb aboard the touring trolley, which then travels back in time to Savannah's early days General Oglethorpe founded Georgia as a colony to protect the interests of the British against Spanish Catholics in Florida. Setting an ominous and foreboding tone, the opera intertwines beautiful moments with haunting melodies to take form as a musical journey through the history of Savannah while telling the story of one of its most famous ghosts — who is believed by many to still haunt Wright Square, searching for the child she birthed while waiting her execution. The opera was penned by American composer and librettist Michael Ching and was inspired by the book Historic Haunts of Savannah, by Savannahbased authors Michael Harris and Linda Sickler.

"Savannah deserves to have this great vocal tradition — which gives a platform to emerging talents in the singers — and we are committed to keep writing and performing opera to honor this unique historical city. We hope that our Alice Ryley opera becomes an enduring part of Savannah culture. Michael Ching, "Alice Ryley" composer

In addition to Milnes, the show features several well-known and celebrated VOICE Festival Artists, including Jessica Best, Ashley Dannewitz, Ann Louise Glasser, James Wright and Cody Austin. Ching will conduct a chamber orchestra featuring members of Velvet Caravan, and the ensemble will feature members of the Savannah Philharmonic Chorus. Savannah VOICE Festival co-founder Maria Zouves, Milnes’ wife and operatic soprano, will direct the production along with Joachim Schamberger, who was also an operatic tenor. Ching commented, “Like Savannah, Alice Ryley has many layers: It is an accessible and enjoyable 55-minute performance that is very emotional. The tragedy of this young Irish woman, her lover and her baby is extremely moving. It also captures the political and socioeconomic pressures of the early years of Savannah’s history, and the time I have spent in Savannah and the insights I have been privileged to share with the authors of Historic Haunts of Savannah and the VOICE Festival founders and faculty has


Jessica Ann Best appears as Alice Ryley, the title character in a new Savannahbased opera about an Irish immigrant executed for killing her employer — and her ghost, which is said to still haunt Wright Square in downtown Savannah. been invaluable. Savannah deserves to have this great vocal tradition — which gives a platform to emerging talents in the singers — and we are committed to keep writing and performing opera to honor this unique historical city. We hope that our Alice Ryley opera becomes an enduring part of Savannah culture.” Adding to the production’s explosion of talent, the chorus will be comprised of a half-dozen members of the Savannah Philharmonic Chorus. “Few cities are able to lay claim to a world-renowned operatic talent, but as a result of the trails blazed by the Savannah VOICE Festival, our community can proudly demonstrate its ties to Sherrill Milnes and his VOICExperience organization. His willingness to direct and participate in area productions and events throughout

the year — in addition to his own festival every August which is now in its fourth year — is an incredible honor for the Savannah arts community and a big draw for opera supporters and music lovers from the world over.” Visit Savannah President Joe Marinelli said. The world premier will offer two shows on Friday, Oct. 30: one at 4 and one at 6 p.m., followed by a talkback after each performance with the cast, at The Charles H. Morris Center at Trustees Garden, 10 E. Broad St. in Savannah. Refreshments will be available for purchase at the door. General admission tickets are $53 each.

MOTH, from page 4 the custody of which he shares with his ex-girlfriend of 10 years. Sara, needless to say, is not thrilled. Hilarity ensues. 2) “The Ghost of Rue Jacob,” by Joan Juliet Buck The new editor of French Vogue is supposed to be poised, polished, completely sane and in control. She is certainly not supposed to be convinced that her new apartment is haunted. Which it totally is. 3) “A Dish Best Served Cold,” by Tristan Jimerson Tristan becomes the victim of identity theft, but he’s not taking it lying down. Fueled by righteous fury and a newfound zeal for detective work (because he has literally nothing else to do), Tristan tracks down the thief and turns the

tables in a way most victims of identity theft never get to experience. Revenge is sweet, and it tastes like pizza. 4) “Good News Versus Bad,” by Erin Baker Erin Baker’s mom is pregnant, and Erin’s dad is not the father. With good humor made possible by distance and time, Erin navigates the rocky landscape of changing relationships with her parents, their divorce and her new baby sister. It’s heartbreaking, surprisingly funny and humbling as she handles an awful situation with a lot more grace (well, eventually) than most of us would. 5) “The Undertaker’s Daughter,” by Jeffrey Ruddell A small-town boy is in love with the undertaker’s daughter and will go to great lengths to impress her. “Sneak into

Your inside look at the GSU Student Athletes.

6) “The Last Taron,” by Alan Rabinowitz In a story straight out of the golden age of exploration, a man at a personal crossroads stumbles upon a Himalayan village and meets the last surviving member of a pygmy race, who gives him some hard truths, tough advice and impossibly rare perspective. 7) “Life on a Mobius Strip,” by Janna Levin I love this story for its impossible symmetry, and the metaphorical resonance of the science. Janna’s personal and romantic lives start to have weird parallels with her astrophysics research, taking her on a journey that becomes borderline science fiction. It’s gorgeous. 8) “Gaggy’s Blessing,” by Krista Tippett The host of a talk show about looking for meaning (and one of my favorite journalists) reflects on the influence her grandfather had on both her life and career through her adventurous journey to becoming a radio broadcast journalist.

Like “Mobius Strip,” this one has an element of the uncanny, and it makes me tear up every time. 9) “A Walk on the West Side,” by Sarah Jones A black stage actress recounts the difficulties of dealing with stereotypes, typecasting and the limited number of roles for women and women of color. Her storytelling takes on an element of standup comedy, and it’s fantastic. 10) “My Bald and Blue Period,” by John Grady. A guy can get jaded even while performing with the Blue Man Group, but one night, an unexpectedly different audience member reminds John of why he loves his job so much. This list is far from exhaustive, and like I said, there are many and more “better” stories out there. Some will strike you more powerfully than they did me, but I hope this list at least provides you with a good starting point for one of the best storytelling venues I know of.

Preparation will be the key to your success this year. Rather than splitting your time between important and inconsequential tasks, focus on the most profitable course of action. Becoming distracted and confused will be your downfall. Strive to put precision and detail into everything you do. SCORPIO (Oct. 24– Nov. 22) — A romantic encounter is evident. Stop worrying about what others think and make the most of your time by following creative pursuits and enjoying a relaxing evening with someone you love. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 –Dec. 21) — Influential connections can be made if you attend industry functions. Don't be shy, focus on your strengths and keep exaggeration to a minimum to ensure you get the best results. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 –Jan. 19) — Stave off boredom. Arrange a gettogether with people who come from different backgrounds. Interaction in a recreational environment will help break down barriers and lead to improved communication and understanding. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20– Feb. 19) — Start the home improvements that you have been contemplating. Making your surroundings more comfortable and inviting will add to your relaxation at the end of a busy day.

PISCES (Feb. 20– March 20) — Join forces with people who are heading in a similar direction. Group ventures look promising and will help you make positive changes to your workplace, your community or your personal life. ARIES (March 21– April 19) — Pick up a pet as a companion or start a new hobby. You have lots of talent, and with a little initiative you could start a lucrative side business. TAURUS (April 20– May 20) — Stand up for yourself if someone is being too demanding. You will disappoint yourself if you do too much for others and leave no time for your own pursuits. GEMINI (May 21– June 20) — If you are feeling stressed, figure out what changes you can make to ease the pressure. Altering your lifestyle or where you live may be required to achieve peace of mind. CANCER (June 21– July 22) — Become a leader. Your insightful ways of finding solutions will

help you to make positive progress regardless of your goal. Help will be offered if you put in a request. LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) — Don't neglect your responsibilities or someone will bring it to your attention. To avoid confrontations be diplomatic and patient when dealing with overly emotional family members or friends. VIRGO (Aug. 23– Sept. 22) — Consider all your options. It's time to make a change. Consult with people in positions that interest you and find out what prerequisites are necessary to get moving in a new direction. LIBRA (Sept. 23– Oct. 23) — Temporary financial setbacks are apparent. Better times lie ahead if you set a budget that gives you better control over the money that comes in and goes out.w

Statesboro residents and people from the surrounding counties set upon the 2015 Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair in force last week. Did we see you there? Check out a few of the Statesboro Herald's pictures from the week that was.
