The Fabrication Lab and Business and Arts Incubator, to be operated by Georgia Southern University and the Averitt Center for the Arts, took a big step forward when its final design was approved. Construction on the Fab Lab began soon after and is currently trucking right along, with a projected completion date of June 2016. June 18 The Daily Meal, a food and dining website, included Statesboro's very own Mainstreet Farmers Market on its "101 Best Farmers Markets in America" list — one of only three Georgia farmers markets to be recognized. So, y'know, it's kind of a big deal. June 21 After the horrific Charleston church shooting, Statesboro residents of all races came together in Statesboro's Original First African Baptist Church cor a community service of unity and healing.

June 30 After the Supreme Court declared that same-sex marriages are legal across the nation, at least two same-sex couples had applied for a marriage license in Bulloch County by this date.

Also, two new alcohol laws went into effect that will impact the Statesboro bar scene, making 21 the minimum age to work as a bouncer and, with a few loopholes, the minimum age to enter a “bar.” The other law lets breweries include up to 72 ounces of take-home beer in the price of a tour. July 3 The Confederate memorial statue on the Bulloch County Courthouse lawn became the target of hot debate when James Major Woodall, a political science major at Georgia Southern University, petitioned to have it relocated to a spot unaffiliated with local government. After weeks of debate, council meetings, protests from both sides, a Confederate truck rally and heated Facebook rants, the commissioners of Bulloch County voted unanimously to keep the statue where it is.

5 tips for starting the school year off right stressful, so order online if you can. While you’re at it, avoid Wal-Mart too. Actually, avoid going any place in Statesboro that you don’t absolutely have to go during that first week. Just trust me on that one. 3. Get SERIOUS about class! Devote yourself 150-percent to showing up to class every day, because skipping class doesn’t usually lead to earning exceptional grades. (And for new students, it’s important to start out with exceptional grades! It’s much harder to bring a GPA up after a bad first semester.) Also, I can’t stress enough how important it is to talk with your professors throughout the semester to stay on track. From my time in college, graduate school and teaching undergraduate courses, it’s always been my experience that professors truly want you to succeed. Ask them for clarification when you’re confused, thoroughly read your syllabi and genuinely put forth an effort to study and learn the material. Your professors will be open to communicating with you and helping you

Make good connections What do you want to accomplish this year? Are you interested in playing a sport, planning for graduate school, joining an organization or getting experience in your field through research or interning? In order to do those things, you’ll need to make some good connections. Start figuring out the appropriate contact people during your first few days and weeks back so that you don’t miss out on any opportunities!

5. Take care of yourself! Get a good night’s sleep every night, eat healthy and nutritious foods, and exercise several times a week to keep your body and mind in good shape! Also, stay out of trouble. There’ll be plenty of opportunities to party and enjoy college, but it’s important to make sure you’re doing it safely and avoiding unsafe or illegal activities. Poor decisions from college can have nasty consequences that follow you for decades, so be wise and careful.w

Adam Sandler's upcoming movie The Do Over filmed a scene in the Statesboro Food World (of all places). Actor David Spade was spotted in the grocery store filming the 45–50-second scene for the movie. So, if you can bring yourself to watch an Adam Sandler movie after the disaster that was Pixels, keep an eye out for Statesboro's 15 (or 45–50) seconds of fame on the big screen. Also: Someone started a social media rumor that Adam Sandler was in town, had rented Splash in the Boro and was inviting locals to come hang out for free. This was, obviously, not true. July 20

Welcome, incoming freshmen! Welcome back, returning Eagles! Georgia Southern is filled with the unmistakable energy that comes from the start of another amazing year of sports, academics and friendships. Whether you’re just getting the hang of college life or coming back as a seasoned veteran to Statesboro living, I have a few simple suggestions for getting the 2015-2016 school year off to a fabulous start: 1. Manage your time wisely Good time management is one of the best skills you could develop for a successful college experience. Use the first few days of the semester to plan out a routine that allows you plenty of time to study, get to work and classes, and take care of yourself each day. For example, it might be helpful to come to campus before classes and map out your route to each class. On a related note… 2. Don’t go pick up your textbooks the first week of class, if you can help it. The bookstores are packed and

Your cheat sheet for coffee shop studying When you need to power through your notes or bang out a paper, a comfortable atmosphere with a steady supply of caffeine is just what the doctor ordered. This handy guide of Statesboro’s coffee shops is here to help you find your perfect off-campus caffeinated escape.

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, apparently, the bomb.

Cool Beanz Espresso Bar

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

Here's the skinny on Boro coffee shops: Starbucks

CAKE & Cool Beanz

The daily grind


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

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. Because the shop is expanding into a small roasting business as well, patrons usually can get a cup of coffee made from beans Hoyle has roasted himself. 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.

Ellianos “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 drivethru 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.) Also, it’s open on Sundays when The Daily Grind and Cool Beanz are closed. 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 This coffee roasting outfit, which has been supplying beans to local stores for the past year, is taking a big step to open its own coffee shop. Just like their roasting room, the owners of Three Tree's new location plan to decorate the shop with calming, earthy colors and global pictures to visually evoke Three Tree's mission: to uphold fair trade standards for coffee farmers and raise awareness of illegal human trafficking. The shop, which is set to open Aug. 22, has two stories filled with nooks and tables where patrons can linger over hand-prepared coffee. Owners Philip and Anna Klayman have big plans for making their shop a college hangout hotspot, drawing people in with acoustic music sets and latte art competitions. 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: Well, as of our publishing date, it's not open yet — and that's a bummer, because we're insanely curious to get inside and see what all the hype is about. You'll have to check it out for yourself at their grand opening Aug. 22!w

Boro sports summer news roundup We have spent the summer looking back over the last 30 years, so let’s catch up on what’s been going on recently. Big news was announced last week as the Premier Development League awarded a minor league soccer expansion franchise to Alex Statesboro. The PDL is a 64-team league with teams all over the United States and Canada and is operated by the USL, which is one step below Major League Soccer. The club in Statesboro will be the only PDL team in the state of The Statesboro soccer Georgia. team will play its games at Georgia Southern’s soccer stadium. An open contest is underway to name the team, so if you have an idea for a team name, you can submit it at www.statesboropdl. com. The club's name will be announced in September and its inaugural season will begin in May 2016. This is exciting news for the area and can only help Georgia Southern’s soccer program. Bringing soccer fans of all ages to Statesboro will give GSU some good exposure to that audience; plus, having a path to the pros right here should be a great recruiting tool for Eagle soccer.

In football news, the Georgia Southern Eagles crossed the bridge over Beautiful Eagle Creek on the morning of Monday, Aug. 3 to begin fall practice in preparation for the 2015 season. Southern is looking to defend its 2014 Sun Belt Conference championship Brown this fall — the season kicks off Sept. 5 at West Virginia. The Eagles were picked to repeat as conference champs by the league’s coaches in the preseason poll. Georgia Southern also received two top-25 votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Southern had six players on the Sun Belt preseason all-conference team: Running back Matt Breida and offensive lineman Darien Foreman were named to the first team while quarterback Kevin Ellison, defensive lineman Jay Ellison, safety Matt Dobson and wide receiver Derek Keaton were second-teamers. GSU also earned some individual national preseason accolades: Breida has been named to the watch lists for the 2015 Maxwell Award, given to America’s College Football Player of the Year, and the 2015 Doak Walker Award for the nation’s best running back. He has also


been named the preseason Sun Belt Offensive Player of the Year. Dobson is on the Wuerffel Trophy watch list, which is awarded to the FBS player who best combines exemplary community services with athletic and academic achievements. Kevin Ellison is on the Manning Award watch list, which was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl and includes 30 of the best quarterbacks in the nation. Last season, not many people expected much from Georgia Southern. This season will be much different. The Eagles have a ton of hype to live up to and, as conference favorites, will have targets on their backs every single week. It’s going to be interesting to see how they respond. Finally, Georgia Southern lost a legend last week. Current students and younger alumni may not be very familiar

with Frank Kerns, but he was wildly successful during his 13 years as head coach of Eagle basketball. Kerns won four regular season Trans-America Athletic Conference titles and three tournament championships, sending Georgia Southern to the NCAA Tournament in 1983, 1987 and 1992 — the last time Southern made an appearance in the Big Dance. He also took the Eagles to the NIT twice (in 1988 and 1989). His career record of 244-132 from 1981-1994 gives him the best winning percentage of any Georgia Southern men’s basketball coach in the Division I era. He also used his knowledge of the game for eight seasons as color analyst for radio broadcasts of Eagle basketball games. Coach Kerns passed away Aug. 3 at the age of 82.w

Where to find the Boro on the Web Regardless of whether you’re a longtime resident or a Statesboro newcomer, you already know the Web can serve as an invaluable tool for keeping up with what’s going on around town. Unlike most of us, if you have an abundance of free time on your hands — lucky you — you could settle for using it the old-fashioned way: Type a few keywords into the Google search bar whenever you’re looking for information on the Boro, then sift through the countless results that pop up, leading you deeper and deeper into the Internet’s little nooks and crannies. But why would you bother, when there’s an easier way? Creating a list of websites that you’re likely to visit most often can save a lot of time you’d otherwise spend staring at the computer screen. To get you started, here are a few online resources you’ll defi-

Boro theater season preview: Fall 2015

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 principals 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 onenight-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 on East Main Street for large-scale, traditional performances; and the Mical Whitaker Black Box, located

Season Preview Pick: Calendar Girls, by Tim Firth; Nov. 6–8 If you have to pick only one Averitt Center performance to see this fall, clear your schedules for Calendar Girls. It’s one of the more risqué shows of the season, and if you’ve seen the movie with Helen Mirren, you know the story: A group of Englishwomen raise money for a local hospital by creating and selling their own nude calendar, and their fellow villagers — and the international media — completely lose their minds. In the hands of some of the funniest women of the Averitt Center, this show is bound to be a complete riot. TICKETS: $18 for non-members

The Performing Arts Center 847 Plant Drive Fondly known to its patrons as the PAC, the Performing Arts Center on Georgia Southern’s campus is the biggest theatrical venue in Statesboro. The PAC has the biggest number of seats in

Statesboro — 825 of them, to be exact — meaning it has the room to attract national touring acts and bigname performances. Last year’s season brought The Great Gatsby, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Arlo Guthrie to the Boro. This season has an equally exciting lineup, featuring plenty of live music and the return of the Moscow Festival Ballet. The performances always look stunning on the PAC’s wide stage and the venue’s effects make each show sharp and professional. (The interior recently received a nice facelift, too, with new carpets and a refinished stage floor to keep everything looking fancy.) 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.

Small though it is, Statesboro has its own bustling theater scene, with three different venues providing a constant rotation of eclectic entertainment. Whether you’re looking for live music, ballet, theatre of many varieties or comedic sketches, there’s always something on in town. But what are the theaters, where are they, and what kind of shows can you expect from each one? It’s not like anyone made it particularly easy for you, because all the names sound ridiculously similar. (Performing Arts Center, Center for Performing Arts, Center for Art and Theatre — seriously, guys?) Luckily, Connect is here to help. Our season preview here breaks down what kinds of entertainment you’re likely to get at which theaters. As an added bonus, we’re including our top pick for each venue’s fall season. Make sure to hit a few of these shows before Christmas.

THEATER, from page 13

Season Preview Pick: The Complete History of Comedy (abridged), by the Reduced Shakespeare Company If you have ever seen The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), you will know why I’m so excited about this particular show. If you haven’t, get thee to YouTube and look it up. The guys in this trio are the sultans of synopsis, the “Bad Boys of Abridgement,” irreverent and side-splittingly hilarious. In this particular show, they’ll be starting with Aristophanes and coming all the way to Jon Stewart in a condensed history of comedy. It’s smart, fun and nerdy, and — if Complete Works is anything to go by — guaranteed to be absolutely hysterical. TICKETS: $22 for patrons, $10 for Georgia Southern University students The Center for Art and Theatre 223 Pittman Drive

The black box theater in Georgia Southern’s Center for Art and Theatre is the main venue for GSU’s


theater and performance students, and I 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 awardwinning performances. Last year, their edgy and epithet-laden show about racial tensions, Race: a Play, was selected out of 60 competing plays for performance at the Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival — a national accolade. Their spring production, Metamorphoses, was a visually stunning masterpiece. The CAT’s upcoming season has an equally challenging roster, and best of all, the tickets are extremely affordable. Season Preview Pick: The Pillowman, by Martin McDonagh, Sept. 30–Oct. 7 Martin McDonagh, one of the masters of dark Irish comedy (and well known for writing the script of

In Bruges), tells the story of a writer who is arrested and questioned after a series of gruesome, brutal child murders are found to resemble some of his own short stories. Multilayered, complex and hair-raising, The Pillowman is going to be difficult to forget. Last winter I was able to catch another of Martin McDonagh’s plays, The Cripple of Inishmaan, and

was delighted by the author’s style: how the script swung wildly between uproariously funny and appallingly dark. The Pillowman sounds like it’s going to occupy the nether end of that spectrum, making it the kind of play the talent at the CAT will handle very well. TICKETS: $5 for Georgia Southern students, $10 for community patronsw

22 Eugenia Last LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — If you don't make it clear where you want to be and what you want to do, you will end up in the wrong place doing the wrong thing. Speak up and set the ground rules. VIRGO (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) — Your generosity will go a long way. Not only will you feel a sense of contentment, you will be recognized and rewarded for your efforts. LIBRA (Sept. 23–Oct. 23) — Don't take what others do or say too seriously. You will be inclined to overreact to minor issues, causing you to miss something major that needs to be addressed. Think before you speak. SCORPIO (Oct. 24– Nov. 22) — Problems with relatives require diplomacy and tact. Accusations or pointing fingers will cause a rift in your relationship. Follow your heart when it comes to a personal decision. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23– Dec. 21) — Focus on money matters. Financial plans can be successful if you examine all of the details carefully. You will make more headway on your own than you will in a joint venture. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22– Jan. 19) — The daily grind will make you forget a promise.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20– Feb. 19) — You are a catalyst who can make things happen. Take charge of your life and future. Subtle improvements to your living space will make things easier.

You will meet someone who motivates you and challenges you intellectually. ARIES (March 21– April 19) — Don't be hasty when it comes to making a personal decision. Take a step back and reflect on the pros and cons before you commit to a change. TAURUS (April 20– May 20) — Don't hold back. Take the plunge and use your imagination to its fullest. Stop worrying about what others think or do and tackle your own plans for the future. GEMINI (May 21–June 20) — Financial issues will prey on your mind. Check out a home-based or part-time job to subsidize your income. Cut out inessential expenditures until your bank account improves. CANCER (June 21– July 22) — You will receive helpful suggestions from an unlikely source. Your ability to see clearly will help you change your direction.w
