The Grand Opening for Three Tree Coffee Roaster's new coffee shop is set for Saturday, Aug. 22 from 6–9pm., in the Midtown Market across from R.J.s Grill on South Main Street. Owners Philip and Anna Klayman have been working in specialty coffee since 2011 and are excited to put their barista skills to use. It is their passion to educate people on the importance of quality, from beginning to end, in order to showcase the uniqueness of each region’s coffee. Their hope is that this shop will also provide an opportunity to better reveal the poverty among coffee farmers, as well as the injustices of human trafficking. For the Grand Opening, there will be live music by Southern Crossroads, free giveaways and 30 percent discounts on all food and drinks. All of the shop's baristas will be on hand to meet their clientele. The new location is roughly 2,000-sq. feet, with a fully functioning kitchen and furnished outer patio. The second floor is filled with cozy nooks, perfect for lingering long over a cup of coffee. Three Tree's initial hours of business will be from 7 a.m.–4 p.m., Monday–Friday, and 8 a.m.–4 p.m. on weekends. In addition to hand-poured and locally roasted coffee, the shop will offer a light breakfast and lunch menu. “It has been an exhilarating summer planning for this new coffee

shop," the owners, Philip and Anna Klayman, wrote in a press release. "Though it has been hard work, we are very happy with the final product and look forward to inviting our neighbors for a cup of coffee.” To get updates on Three Tree Coffee’s new coffee shop and the Grand Opening, visit their facebook page or website at: www.3treecoffeeroasters.com. “As we get closer to the Grand Opening, we are more and more excited about the potential this coffee shop has to bless our community while also educating on ways we can use our morning cup of coffee to change the world,” the Klaymans wrote.

Wham! Bam! Plays to slam into GSU's black box theater It’s 2 a.m. in Georgia Southern’s Center for Art and Theatre. A crew of thespians, new freshmen and performing arts enthusiasts are split into groups. Some are collaborating, others are just chatting, as writers churn out a script to a brand-new one act play. They’ve been there all night, doing ice breakers and pouring out all their creative juices for the annual “Wham! Bam! Play Slam!” theatrical event at GSU. In the play slam, students have 24 hours to write, direct and stage a one-act play. According to those who have been, it makes for a memorable night — an immersive trial-by-fire plunge into the world of collegiate theater. “I was used to tame high school theatre and I realized just how much fun college theatre is,” said GSU student Spencer Collins, who was a freshman when he participated in his first Wham! Bam! event. At first, he said, it was awkward: The freshmen stood alone as they tried to find a way to integrate into the peculiar species that are liberal arts college students. It did not stay

that way for long. According to Collins, the upperclassman became very accepting, and the event served not only to create art but to welcome new students in the CAT's fold. Students who participate in this year's play slam can expect the night begins with ice breakers, tailored to get creative minds flowing and encourage students to mingle. “It’s kind of a 'Welcome back!'

We gather together theater majors and minors and anyone interested in theater who want to be involved,” said Kelly Berry, an associate professor of theatre and a coordinator of this year’s event. The real fun, however, begins after the ice breakers. Participants can expect to be split into groups and assign themselves roles within their teams: writers, directors and actors. For the next 24 hours, the groups are tasked with writing and minimally producing short plays. Collins was the lead in the play his group wrote. “I don’t remember the name, but I remember being the lead," Collins said. "It was scary: I had done shows before, but this was all totally made up. We learned how to do all of it super quickly." The plays, which are usually comedies, are entertaining to say the least. Collins explained the plot of his first play at Wham! Bam! The plot involved a waiting room in Hell, which sounds like something right out of Saturday Night Live.

Airbound Entertainment brings Miami-based jam band to the Boro Saturday, Aug. 29 Vince Garrett Music history has provided many great musical duos. While those greats are few and far between — and it is much too early to start the ranking — the musical pair of The Norm can at least give you an awesome experience. The duo out of Miami, Florida, has been performing at venues across the Southeast with their songs inspired by life, experiences and lessons learned. The two leads are stepbrothers: Bryan Rucker is the guitarist and singer, and Ryan Bars lays rap vocals on their tracks. According to Rucker, the two bonded over music when they met. "Ryan was a little younger than me and I had been doing this when I was a kid," Rucker said. "He started adding his raps to my song lyrics, and the rest is history." Rucker has a deep background in music. He sang background on various tracks before becoming a duo with Bars. His father was a drummer in the Bee Gees and has even played

SPECIAL Stepbrothers Bryan Rucker and Ryan Bars joined forces to become The Norm, a Miami-based musical duo with a sound reminiscent of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. with Michael Jackson and Johnny Cash. Rucker gives off an eclectic air of versatility. He can geek out over the history and music of Jim Morrison and the Bee Gees while holding down a discussion about the cultural impact of rap artists like Kendrick Lamar and Eminem. Ryan Bars completed his degree in audio engineering and decided that he enjoyed being on stage more than being backstage. While a savvy listener can certainly hear the musicians' influences — 311, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Citizen Cope and more — in their songs, their combined sound is very much their own. Rucker says that the band is also very inspired by hip-hop music and artists. Rucker named a few, including Dr. Dre and Eminem.

"That type of hip-hop is very introspective and speaks about everyday life. People can relate to it because (the artists) aren't always bragging about a lifestyle, but they are sharing what they are going through on a daily basis," Rucker said. Ryan Bars is the lead rapper in the band, and his Eminem influence can definitely be heard on songs like "Eyes Wide" — a song about the pair's unyielding effort to make the music they love. They can also bring a song like "We Like To Party" to the table, which on its surface is as simple as it sounds, but becomes a little deeper after the first listen as they ponder the expiration date on the lifestyle they live. According to Rucker, they have a

song for nearly every occasion, but the one thing that they bring to every show is their positivity. "The best thing about playing live is interacting with the crowd and just jamming," he said. "Our music is a little more aggressive, but ultimately we bring love to the crowd because music is our sanctuary." The Norm brings a depth of content and the same energy you would get from any of your favorite jam bands. This is Red Hot Chili Peppers with a dash of Aesop Rock, a wallop of bass that you can feel and a light topping of saxophone for good measure. Catch them live at Dingus Magee's on Saturday, Aug. 29 starting at 10 p.m. For more information on The Norm, go to their website at thenormmusic.com.w

Meet the competition Alex Brown breaks down Eagles' opposition in 2015 season The season is less than three weeks away. Hard to believe it’s almost here. In preparation, let’s get to know Georgia Southern’s 2015 opponents.

Alex

Sept. 5 vs. West Virginia

Morgantown, WV – 7:30 p.m. Georgia Southern opens the season at West Virginia. Notorious for their raucous home crowds, the Mountaineers will provide a tough season opener for the Eagles, to say the least. West Virginia, who went 7-6 last season, was just 4-8 in 2013. The Mountaineers are bringing back plenty of experience as they return 16 starters from the 2014 team. After a quarterback battle in the spring, dual-threat QB Skyler Howard emerged as the starter. He started the final two games last season. The Mountaineers have some retooling to do on both lines, but most experts seem to think this team will be in the top half of the Big XII in 2015.

Sept. 12 vs. Western Michigan

Paulson Stadium – 6 p.m. The Eagles’ home opener comes in week two of the season against a really good Western Michigan team.

The Broncos finished 8-5 last year and were a narrow loss to Northern Illinois away from playing for the 2014 MAC championship. They lost to Air Force in the Idaho Potato Bowl. The Broncos are getting all kinds of hype going into the season and are Brown picked to finish second in the MAC West. This is not going to be a cakewalk by any means. Western Michigan will come to Statesboro following their season opener at Michigan State. Hopefully it’s about 97 degrees with 98 percent humidity, no breeze and plenty of gnats. I can’t imagine many of those boys from way up north have ever played in that kind of sauna. If we get weather like that, advantage goes to the Eagles.

Sept. 19 vs. The Citadel

Paulson Stadium – 6 p.m. Georgia Southern’s old Southern Conference rival comes to town in week three, and I don’t like this game one bit. The Citadel always gave the Eagles fits no matter what kind of season either team was having. Many of these guys have played Georgia Southern before, and if you’ll remember, the Bulldogs beat the Eagles as recently as 2012. In the last meeting between these two programs in 2013, the Bulldogs actually had a 21-20 lead until Kevin Ellison scored with less than two minutes left to give the Eagles the 28-21 win. That was just two years ago. This one makes me a little nervous.

the 22-16 Eagle win, and the party in Statesboro ensued after the Warhawks’ final pass attempt fell incomplete on the next play. The Warhawks haven’t forgotten how close they were to knocking off the Eagles. Monroe is picked to finish in the middle of the pack in most preseason projections, but this is another long road trip in a backto-back weekend swing that takes Southern a combined 3,300 miles away from home.

Sept. 26 vs. Idaho

Moscow, ID – 9 p.m. Idaho is picked by many to finish at or near the bottom of the conference in 2015. The Sun Belt coaches poll has the Vandals dead last, but I’m not buying it. Although Georgia Southern won last year’s meeting 47-24, it was close in the fourth quarter. Idaho scored two unanswered touchdowns to cut the lead to 33-24 and had the ball back when Matt Dobson’s pick-6 put the game away. This year, Georgia Southern has to make the trip out west. The Eagles never seem to play as well when traveling a long way from home. Hopefully I’m wrong, but this one isn’t going to be a lock.

Oct. 3 vs. UL Monroe

Oct. 17 vs. New Mexico State

Paulson Stadium – 6 p.m. Homecoming weekend in Statesboro will feature Georgia Southern hosting New Mexico State. Last season, the Eagles struggled out of the gate when the Aggies took a 14-0 first quarter lead in Las Cruces, but Southern scored 29 unanswered points en route to a 36-28 road win. New Mexico State is picked to finish in the bottom three in almost every preseason poll, and the Aggies will be making the long trip to Statesboro. With Georgia Southern coming off a bye week, hopefully this is one the Eagles can win handily. But they don’t play the games on paper. That takes us to the halfway point of the season. Next week, we’ll look at Southern’s final six opponents.w

Fallout Shelter is a very challenging and fun game as soon as you start it up. Without weapons and items, as well as many dwellers, it can be a challenge to survive in the Vault. The game is very aesthetically pleasing with sharp, colorful graphics and animations. The audio is spot-on for the game and it’s very easy to learn and begin playing as a great time-passer. However, the game does have some nuisances and problems. First of all, if players take advantage of the in-game microtransactions with real money, the challenging aspect of the game disappears and the game becomes rather boring. Also, players who do well over time and build up their Vault with lots of dwellers, weapons and items will find the game easy and, soon after, repetitive. Although the game is fun, it feels like it needs a bit more to keep the game interesting in the long haul. Finally, the Android version appears to have a bug that will erase all of your work if the phone dies while you are playing the game. Hopefully this is addressed soon, because some players have spent a great deal of time playing and buying microtransactions with real money, only see their work lost.

All in all, Fallout Shelter does a great job of being a fun, time-wasting game that is free in the app stores. I’d recommend players not spend real money, to not only save but also to keep the game fun and challenging. Bethesda should have added some kind of multiplayer or deeper fighting mechanics to increase the replay ability. Fallout fans should definitely pick this app up, if only to keep themselves entertained until Fallout 4 releases Nov. 10.w

Still going 'Left' Kenneth Lee

It’s been over 100 days since Georgia Southern graduate and aspiring filmmaker Shane Nelson started on his nationwide walk from Tybee Island to San Francisco for his Kickstarter-funded film, Left. So far, Nelson has made remarkable progress throughout his trek, traveling from one destination to another, which is hardly surprising to those who are already familiar with Nelson’s firm sense of commitment and determination.

SHANE NELSON/special

Shane Nelson, Georgia Southern graduate and aspiring filmmaker, pauses for a selfie and a triumphant fist-pump as he crosses the Tennessee border — just one of the many state lines he has crossed on his cross-country walk from Tybee Island to San Francisco. The walk so far "For me, the walk is a step-by-step process," Nelson told Connect. "I just put my best foot forward, taking everything in stride. Every day is completely different. Some days I wake up in a hotel, other days I wake up on a strangers couch, and sometimes I even wake up in my tent at a campground or on the side of the road." Daily concerns and challenges usually involved fatigue, weather and safety. Nelson even had to replace the stroller in which he carries supplies — which he affectionately named "Bowie" — two separate times since he embarked on his journey. However, Nelson shared that the lowest point of his journey was not

caused by the elements but by people, when the occupants of a passing vehicle rolled down their windows, yelled, “Here you go,” and threw pennies at him. “The person was aiming at me, not for me," Nelson said. "I don’t know what it is like to truly be homeless — to be called a vagrant or a bum — but in that moment, I felt less than human.” Despite being a victim of a cruel joke, Nelson’s faith in other people has not faltered an inch. He has been the recipient of many selfless acts of kindness. Many strangers have offered him food, water, money, rides and even housing when he needed it. “I can easily pinpoint the few hardships, but there is so much over-

whelming positivity that I can’t easily single one scenario out," Nelson said. "The love and community I have experienced has been beautiful. It is refreshing to see how the world really is outside of the mainstream media market, where every story is negative and keeps the country divided." So far, Nelson has gone through days hungry, dehydrated and sleepdeprived. However, one thing he isn’t in danger of losing is his sense of humor, which he has even used to his advantage on occasions. One day, having gotten sick from overheating and overexertion, Nelson decided to try hitchhicking to the nearest town down the road. He stuck out his thumb and watched as car after car passed him by.

A subject that Left primarily focuses on is music, which Nelson wanted to cover by seeking out street performers, upcoming artists and unknowns, as well as attending several big musical festivals, including Bonnaroo, Counterpoint and The Grateful Dead Reunion show. Nelson was ultimately unable to receive the proper credentials to film at these events, but he is still satisfied with the footage he was able to collect from other upstart musicians. And even while he cannot share the shows with his audience, Nelson said they been a great part of his own experience. “The Grateful Dead concert was

absolutely incredible," he said. "The first night, they passed out roses and you immediately felt like you were a part of something bigger than yourself. It will go down as one of the best concerts I will ever witness in my lifetime." Nelson added, "Festivals bring together people in a way that nothing else can. It is like an escape from reality — although many would say that it is a trip back into reality, a vacation from the facade and a chance to be a part of what life should really be like. Community and love are all around you, unified by the music and the atmosphere.”

'Driving Miss Daisy' — bigger and better than ever Revival on Performing Arts Center stage celebrates career of PAC director Carol Thompson being forced to give up driving. Her son, Boolie, played by Alan Tyson, hires Hoke Colburn, a middle-aged black man, as his mother’s chauffeur. Hoke, portrayed by Mical Whitaker, manages to be exceedingly patient, quiet and respectful, while maintaining his dignity and eventually develops a close friendship with Miss Daisy." Since that first performance in 2009, Carol Thompson was promoted to the director of the Performing Arts Center, and Mical Whitaker was inducted into the Georgia Theatre Hall of Fame. They, in addition to Alan Tyson and director Gary Dartt, have been part of the Statesboro arts scene since before the Averitt Center broke ground, and have played big roles in getting that arts scene to where it is now. Daisy has played no small part in that process. "We love the show," Thompson said "I think it's timeless. The three of us just have such a connection with each other and with the characters that it makes it very heartwarming and very special for us." Thompson, who is about to retire from a long career in the arts sector, chose to include the revival performance of Daisy in the PAC's season as a retirement gift — not to herself, but to her audience. "Everybody's loved it, and they always say 'When are you going to do it again?' " Thompson said. "So I felt that this was the perfect time. It felt that I could give something back to the audience for them to enjoy." Other theaters and companies — including the 2013 broadcast production by Angela Lansbury and James

One of the magical aspects of theatre is that each show is one of a kind. There is no saving and no downloading, and even a recording of a performance falls short of the magic that comes of watching a story unfold live. When an audience member watches a particularly captivating show, the experience is usually a singular one. They will never see that show, performed exactly that way, ever again, and oftentimes they will never get to see the same production with the same cast revived. Which is why this particular event is so special: The original cast of the Averitt Center for the Arts' 2009 production of Driving Miss Daisy is returning for an encore performance, this time on the big stage of the Performing Arts Center on Georgia Southern University's campus. This is not the first time Daisy has been revived. In fact, a year after its successful first run — which played three sold-out shows — the Averitt Center staged the show again in the spring of 2010 and sold out again. Daisy also has enjoyed several other smaller stagings, including a performance at East Georgia College for the Swainsboro Arts Council in March and short scenes for various events throughout the years. Whatever the magic is, something about Daisy has a hold on the Statesboro and Bulloch County communities. The original press releases summarize the Averitt Center's production of Alfred Uhry's play like this: "Elderly Daisy Werthan, played by Carol Thompson, is a feisty, irascible curmudgeon who resents the loss of her independence from

Miss Daisy, portrayed by Carol Thompson, right, takes the hand of Hoke (Mical Whitaker) and tells him he's her best friend during the Averitt STARs community theater's production of "Driving Miss Daisy" in 2009. The show will be revived at the Performing Arts Center Saturday, Aug. 29, at 7:30 p.m. Earl Jones — often play up the comedy of Daisy's script. While Thompson and Co.'s production certainly honors those comedic moments, Thompson said that their approach is decidedly more empathetic. "We interpret the show as a very intimate building of a human relationship between two totally different people," she said. "And over 25 years, they just develop a friendship of a lifetime. So we see it a little different." She then added, laughing, "But maybe that's because we're all Southerners."

Thompson said she hoped this would not be Daisy's last hurrah on the local stage, but for now, the PAC's performance is the only one projected for the near future. The show will take place Aug. 29 at 7:30 p.m., and it will be followed by a reception, featuring wine and light h'orderves, in which audience members can mingle with the cast and crew. Tickets are $24 for community members and $10 for youth and GSU students. And get them quickly. After all, Daisy has a history of selling out.w

TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX/Deseret News

The Thing's stone body gives him epic strength and makes him virtually indestructible — but not, alas, invulnerable to terrible writing and the ire of movie critics.

The sight of Miles Teller bound to an examination table, arms and legs stretched out well beyond normal human length, is a perfect metaphor for Fantastic Four. It’s 20 minutes of story painfully stretched into a 90-minute film. The setup takes its time but offers some promise. Teller plays Reed Richards, a child genius who teams up with some other gifted youngsters to work on a top-secret teleportation project. When the government threatens to steal their work, Richards and his team decide to test it out themselves, and an ill-fated trip to a parallel dimension gives superpowers to four characters while one member of the team is left behind. Richards winds up with the aforementioned extendable appendages. Johnny Storm (Michael B. Jordan) becomes the Human Torch, thanks to a new ability to control fire. His adopted sister Sue (Kate Mara) can become invisible, and Richards’ childhood buddy Ben (Jamie Bell) turns into a rock version of the Incredible Hulk called "the Thing." The problem is that this setup is pretty much the whole movie. The origin story drags itself out at an almost comically slow pace. Eventually, the four brand-new superheroes have to square off against the guy they left in the parallel dimension (Victor Von Doom, played by Toby Kebbell). Left on his own, Doom has become a megalomaniacal supervillain bent on the

destruction of the planet he left behind. Not that anyone is surprised. When you grow up with a name like Doom, your career path is pretty much laid out for you. The truth is that just as with Sony’s recent Spider-Man reboot, Fantastic Four exists only so Twentieth Century Fox can maintain its rights to the Marvel property. Things look even worse when you realize that Fantastic Four had such a low bar to begin with. Fox already tried to get this franchise off the ground 10 years ago, but the two films it produced were such critically panned flops that even a minimum of competence here would have been considered a success. If there’s a plus side, the effects aren’t too bad, and there is some genuine talent in the cast. But it’s wasted on a movie that stumbles all over itself. Scenes are padded with excessive ponderous gazes from actors who could have used the time for character development. When something does happen, characters like Richards use expository dialogue to telegraph parts of the story that aren’t being told. Or they give impassioned speeches meant to evoke emotional responses the film hasn’t earned. The humor falls flat, none of the characters generate any real chemistry, and most of the time the interesting action either happens off-screen or during long passages of time that title cards skip us over. This one just isn’t worth your time.w

"LEFT", from page 13 meets by asking them, “What is happiness?” Nelson has been touched by many testimonies, but most moving one so far has been that of Frank Barham, a paraplegic who was wheeling his way from Atlanta to Savannah in an attempt to raise funds and awareness for other Americans with disabilities. A week after meeting each other, Barham was killed in a tragic car accident that also took the life of Margaret Kargbo, one of his team members. “It was so sad, but positivity still came out of the story," Nelson said. "To Frank, ‘happiness was a sense of fulfillment; a sense of purpose.’ ... He fulfilled his definition of happiness all the way to the end." Nelson has been able to meet many selfless individuals with goals similar to Barham during his walk. Another notable person Nelson praises is Jared Reichbaum, a man Nelson recently came into contact with during his trek through Iowa. Reichbaum is on his own walk for “Be The Match,” America’s largest bone marrow registry, by collecting swab samples and raising awareness. Since their initial encounter, the two walkers have agreed to walk together to San Francisco. “The first day, my front tire kept

In addition to the fun of the travel, performance and getting to meet new people, Van Doorslaer said that she is gaining plenty of pre-profressional experience as well. "I think all those skills that you learn here, like public speaking or doing interviews, help you grow as a person,

breaking and we had to cut our walk short," Nelson said. "Strangely enough, the next morning Jared received a message from the family of a young girl named Emily that he had met at the hospital. She had become unresponsive. Since we were still nearby, Jared and I visited the hospital and he was able to visit with her one last time before leaving. It was a very humbling experience. Jared has walked every step of the way from Atlantic City, New Jersey and is walking to San Francisco. I have so much respect for Jared and his mission." Currently heading towards Nebraska, Nelson has high hopes that Barham and Reichbaum’s stories, along with others he collected, will challenge his audience to be more active in their lives and more contributing to the world. “I want people to look inside themselves for the answers to the questions that I ask during my interviews," Nelson said. "There are too many questions that need answers, too many experiences yet to be had, and too much division between people groups. I hope my film will challenge them to see that everyone is different, but it is our freedom to be different that makes us equal. We are all human. Some people just can't seem to realize that."w

and I think it will help me in my studies and later in my life," Van Doorslaer said. "I really felt that it was the right moment, and I love traveling, so I felt like it was the right time to do it!" Statesboro will be one of only 15 stops in the United States portion of the tour. As part of their 18-month celebration to the world — with more than 45 stops across the United States, Europe and Mexico — the Up with People cast also will be going to Brussels, Belgium, Mexico City, Mexico, Munich, Germany, Orlando and Rome.
