On the Verge concert series brings piano virtuoso Jenny Q Chai to perform at Georgia Southern University, teach piano master class When Jenny Q Chai arrives in Statesboro for her Sept. 25 concert, she will have just appeared as the soloist to perform Philippe Manoury’s concerto at the inaugural concert of Warsaw Festival with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra. While in Statesboro, the American-Chinese piano prodigy will be conducting a piano master class and a workshop for Georgia Southern’s composition students. Her concert will be held Friday, Sept. 25, at 7:30 p.m. in the Carol A. Carter Recital Hall. The concert is free and open to the public. An artist of singular vision, pianist Jenny Q Chai is widely renowned for her ability to illuminate musical connections throughout the centuries. With razor-sharp intention, Chai integrates her prodigy’s training with personal fascinations in the latest in live electronics, artificial intelligence and environmental research, creating layered multimedia programs and events which explore and unite elements of science, nature and art. Based both in Shanghai and New York City, Chai’s instinctive understanding of new music is complemented by a deep grounding in core repertoire, with special affinity for Schumann, Scarlatti, Beethoven, Bach,

Debussy and Ravel. She is also a noted interpreter of 20th-century masters Cage, Messiaen, Kurtág and Ligeti. Her career is threaded through with strong relationships and close collaborations with a range of notable contemporary composers, including Marco Stroppa, Jaroslaw Kapuscinski and György Kurtág, among others. With a deft poetic touch, Chai weaves these wide-ranging composers and repertoire into a gorgeous and lucid musical tapestry. Chai has won acclaim for performances in New York City, at Carnegie Hall (Zankel), le Poisson Rouge, Roulette and Symphony Space. She has appeared throughout the U.S., Germany, Belgium and Spain; and at the Gaudeamus New Music, the Festival Leo Brouwer in Cuba, and the Darmstadt International Festival for New Music. In China, she has appeared regularly at the Shanghai Concert Hall, and is widely known as a leading advocate for contemporary music, having given the Chinese premiere of numerous contemporary masterworks, including works by Messiaen, Cage and the very first prepared piano concert in the country. Chai is also an active lecturer on topics such as music and technology

Q: How long do dental sealants last? A: A sealant is a plastic coating that is flowed into the

grooves and crevices that are on the tops of the tooth. First, the tooth is cleaned thoroughly, and any debris is removed from the cracks and crevices. Then the tooth is treated with a bonding agent by flowing the plastic into the grooves. The excess can be seen on the tops of the tooth. Often the plastic is colored white to aid in monitoring the sealants at the cleaning appointments. The top part of the sealant often wears away in 3-5 years. However, the part of the plastic that is in the grooves seems to last much longer than 3-5 years

At last: The 'Metal Gear' game we all deserve

the story isn’t as deep and centered on long, drawn-out cut scenes like past iterations, there is still plenty to go around to keep gamers interested and enthralled. Day-and-night cycles that run real-time also add to an already impressive environment. Players looking for a true espionage game where they call all the shots will be delighted with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Adapting and improvising on the fly has never been more imperative than in this game and should bring a welcomed change of pace to players used to set objectives and missions. Kojima has made the Metal Gear game we all deserved and yearned for, and I believe he ended the series on a good note.w

That's more like it! Georgia Southern bounces back in victory against West Virginia What a difference a week makes. After the loss to West Virginia, it was doom and gloom for much of Eagle Nation. As bad as the season-opening 44-0 loss felt, I tried to remain optimistic — and even picked Alex Georgia Southern to beat Western Michigan. But I did not envision the Eagles blowing out the Broncos the way they did. After re-watching the West Virginia game during the middle of the week, I didn’t feel like it was as bad as I originally thought when I wrote last week’s column. In Week 1 against the Mountaineers, Southern

just couldn’t seem to break the big plays on offense that Eagle fans have grown accustomed to. That was not the case in Week 2 against Western Michigan. The Eagles allowed a field goal on the Broncos’ opening drive, but scored Brown 23 unanswered points and never looked back en route to a 43-17 blowout of the Mid-American Conference’s preseason No. 2 team. Western Michigan was feeling pretty good about a respectable 13-point loss to the nation’s No. 5 team, Michigan State, to open the season. And, after seeing what happened to Georgia Southern in Week 1, the

Georgia Southern vs Western Michigan GSU Game Highlights, interviews & post game wrap-up with our sports analysts

The Sir Shop


Georgia Southern running back Matt Breida slithers through the Western Michigan for a 9-yard touchdown run during the first quarter at Paulson Stadium Saturday. The score was the first of four touchdowns for Breida. Broncos had to like their chances against the Eagles. And so did the socalled experts. WMU was a 4.5-point favorite. Last week, we did not award a game ball to anyone — which may have been a bit harsh. Once again, after watching the game a second time, it wasn’t as bad as I originally felt. Maybe it was just the long trip home talking, and maybe West Virginia is just really, really good. So, since we didn’t give a game ball out last week, let’s give two out this week. And the choices are pretty obvious. Our first game ball goes to Matt Breida. Mr. Breida, as Western Michigan may now call him, went off for 176 yards and four touchdowns on just 11 carries. He broke touchdown runs of 4, 9, 34 and 70 yards after a fairly quiet season opener. The second game ball goes to Antonio Glover. Glover had three interceptions Saturday night and the Eagles turned the Broncos over four times total — much better than the performance at West Virginia, where the Mountaineers won the turnover battle 5-0. Glover also had seven tackles — just two off of Matt Dobson’s team-leading nine. Now that all seems right once again in the world, Georgia Southern

hosts longtime Southern Conference rival The Citadel this week. The Eagles get quarterback Kevin Ellison back after a two-game suspension. The Bulldogs are 2-0 on the young season, with wins over Davidson (69-0) and Western Carolina (28-10). The Citadel has always given Georgia Southern fits. No matter how good Georgia Southern has been, it seems the Bulldogs have always been a tough matchup for the Eagles. The Citadel runs the option that Eagle fans are used to seeing — and have run it well so far this season. Rushing totals of 535 yards against Davidson and 341 yards against Western Carolina have been pretty impressive, but I have a feeling Georgia Southern’s defense will be much better than either of those two opponents. Tattler Prediction: Both teams run the ball a lot, so don’t blink. This game will go by quickly. The Citadel will do to the Eagles what the Eagles have done to so many more talented opponents over the years. The Bulldogs will move the ball and eat up the clock, which will keep the game closer than expected. But Southern will pull away in the second half with superior talent and more depth. Eagles 38, Bulldogs 21w

Averitt STARS present 'Boarding House Reach' A teenage boy wants a bicycle more than just about anything else in the world, but he seems to be allergic to the hard work necessary to earning the money to buy it. He needs an enterprising get-rich-quick scheme, and he finds it when his parents unexpectedly leave town for week. With all that empty space in the house, what’s a clever, hard-up kid to do? Rent out the home as a boarding house, of course. Nothing could possibly go wrong. Donald Payton’s The Boarding House Reach is a romping comedy and Leave It to Beaver-style caper, featuring a sizeable ensemble of larger-than-life characters, who will all be treading the boards of the Emma Kelly Stage at the Averitt Center for the Arts. Pro wrestlers in the parents’ bedroom? Check.

Mysterious, silent and possibly insane old lady whose preferred hobby is staring at people until they become obviously uncomfortable? Check. Bank robbers masquerading as average Joe’s while toting suitcases full of stolen cash? Check. The show will run Sept. 25–26 at 7:30 p.m., with a Sunday matinee Sept. 27 at 2 p.m. The Saturday show will be preceded by a “Boarding House Dinner on the Grounds,” a boarding house-style dinner at which “participants will enjoy entertainment, fellowship and much more,” according to a press release. Director Tony Phillips answered a few questions for Connect Statesboro to make audience members feel right at home with The Boarding House Reach.


The cast of "The Boarding House Reach" invites you to come join the family at the show running Sept. 25–27 at the Averitt Center for the Arts. Connect: What drew you to this particular script? Phillips: After directing Greater Tuna and Southern Hospitality, I’ve grown to love and cherish comedies. A friend, Deborah Braun, recommended it to me. When I

read it the first time I knew in my heart it would be a production I would enjoy directing and that the Statesboro community would enjoy watching.

The Performing Arts Center at Georgia Southern University is excited to welcome the Reduced Shakespeare Company presenting The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 pm. Called “a non-stop laugh fest” by critics, The Complete History of Comedy (abridged) covers comedy through the ages, from the Greek master of laughs Aristophanes and Shakespeare, to the eras of vaudeville, Charlie Chaplin and The Daily Show, and answers important, fundamental questions such as “Why, in fact, did the chicken cross the road?” The Reduced Shakespeare Company is a three-man comedy

14 Special to Connect Jeff Yawn, top, and partner Jessica Zettler perform an snazzy introduction during last year's Dancing with the Statesboro Stars to benefit Safe Haven of Statesboro.

Statesboro Stars will be out for two nights The glitz, glamor and fun of Dancing with the Statesboro Stars has always been difficult to contain to one night. That's why, for the first time, this year's event will see two separate performances. The first show on Thursday, Oct. 1, will follow the pattern set by the last five years of the event's history: A red carpet affair following the style of the hit televised dance competition, with a full panel of judges looking to award the best dance team with the coveted Mirror Ball trophy. The encore performance on Sunday, Oct. 4, will be slightly more informal and relaxed — but the dancers will still

take the stage with all the energy they bring to the main event. Until Monday morning, event organizers were not even certain there would be an encore performance for the show — but they had a pretty good feeling it would be necessary. The event has achieved immense local popularity and has sold out three years in a row, twice in the 825-seat Performing Arts Center. They kept the encore performance as an emergency plan in case tickets sold out the morning of Sept. 14, the day they went on sale. Predictably, tickets were gone within two hours of the box office opening. Apparently, Statesboro just can't get enough of seeing its stars cut a rug.


Dancing with the Statesboro Stars serves as one of the city’s biggest and most popular fundraising events, with all proceeds going to benefit Safe Haven. Safe Haven is an organi-

zation devoted to caring for victims of domestic violence, both physical and psychological. As its name suggests, it provides a facility to which people in abusive homes or relationships can escape for refuge and help of many


Pro: Jessica Zettler Partner: John Witherington

Has been dancing for 25 years Will be performing quickstep, Charleston and jazz Why are you competing? As a teacher, I have known students who were kept safe by this program, and I am touched by the outpouring from the community every year. Fun Fact: My husband took dance classes to impress me when we first met. I guess it worked because we have been married for almost 4 years!

Star: Andrea Howard Partner: Bryan Realiza

Will be performing disco-inspired jazz Why are you competing? When asked by Ms. Melanie (Lewis) if I would dance, I knew I couldn’t tell her no. She puts so much time and energy into this fundraiser and I knew I would want to work with her to help raise as much money as possible for Safe Haven. Fun Fact: Most of my high school friends still call me Andie.

Star: Dr. Suketu Patel Partner: Katie Walker

Has been dancing for all his life Why are you competing? To showcase my graceful dance moves and for the opportunity to win the Mirror Ball! More importantly, to help create awareness and raise money for Safe Haven. Fun Fact: I spill food on myself during every meal.

Pro: Melanie Lewis Partner: Patrick Webb

Has been dancing since she was 3 years old Will be performing an upbeat hip-hop/rock medley Why are you competing? Dance has always been such a special part of my life. I was blessed to be able to start taking dance lessons at a very early age, and I fell in love with dancing and performing. I've always wanted to use my love of dance to help others and wow, God put Safe Haven in my life.

amount of grant money every year, but the amount has not adjusted over the years to account for Safe Haven’s growing client base. Rather than cut corners on the kinds of assistance they wanted to give their clients, the Statesboro Safe Haven staff got creative when it came to fundraising. That’s where Dancing with the Statesboro Stars came in. “We wanted to do something fun to give back to the community and at the same time raise money to help us with the services that our clients so desperately need,” Williams said. The show, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. Part of the event’s strength comes not only through community response, but from the efforts of the dancers themselves. Throughout the months of training and preparation, Safe Haven conducted events for the 12 dancing teams to educate them about Safe Haven’s mission, facilities and services. In turn, the dancers carry Safe Haven’s story out into the community, making the awareness the event raises reach farther and last longer than simply a night on the stage. In the months building up to the main event, the dancing teams have

been fundraising throughout the community in a competition to raise the most money for Safe Haven. Like in the TV show, the dancers can also raise money by getting people to vote for them online with a $1 donation that will go to Safe Haven. In addition to the ticket sales, money from votes make up a good chunk of the event’s earnings. While tickets are completely sold out for the Oct. 1 performance of DWTSS, there were still tickets available for the Sunday encore performance as of 4:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14. Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased through the PAC box office, either in person or by calling (912) 478-7999. Also, there is still time to participate through voting for the candidates at Safe Haven will also put out a DVD of the show so that those who are unable to attend the event can enjoy the performances and support the organization’s cause.

Pro: Stacie McDaniel Has been dancing since she was about 10 years old. Will be performing a jazz-funk fusion, inspired by the King of Pop Why did you choose this style? I really can't take too much credit for this one! My partner Chandler had a vision and it was a great one — so I just tried to find the right choreography that supported that vision. Fun Fact: I am liable to break out into song and dance at any moment, especially when I'm excited about something.

Star: Chandler Dennard Has been dancing since I was a kid. (I've always enjoyed dancing ... mainly because it was a great way to meet girls.)

Pro: Marcie Crosby Partner: Bubba Hunt

Has been dancing for 26 years Will be performing a fun jazz routine Why did you choose this style? As a child, the first type of dance style I took was jazz, and it's been a favorite genre ever since. Why are you competing? Raising funds for this worthy cause is the #1 reason I think we all compete. Fun Fact: I'm a football fanatic. I am especially known as a HUGE fan of the Buffalo Bills!

Star: Alex Salmon Partner: Gerald Hitchcock

Has been dancing for 15 years. (But it's been almost five years since I last put on a pair of dancing shoes!) Will be performing swing dancing, with a teaser of the tango! Why did you choose this style? I wanted our dance to be upbeat and energetic so that the crowd would be engaged in our routine. Our routine showcases my personality and is really fun! Fun Fact: Despite my many years of dancing, I am super clumsy!

Star: Erin Dalton

Partner: John Witherington Has been dancing since I met my partner back in May, and not a moment before. Will be performing a swing routine Why are you competing? A.) First and foremost, for the benefit of Safe Haven, of course! B.) I've wanted to learn to dance since I was a child. ... I really thought it would be super fun. THAT, I can tell you today, is a FACT. I have been having the time of my life!

Why are you competing? Like I said … I’ve always enjoyed dancing. Can’t think of a better reason to get up dance and make a fool of myself than doing it to raise money for a great cause. Fun Fact: Most people know that I was a cheerleader at Georgia Southern (1985–1989). ... But what people don’t know is that I played 5 sports in high school. I always loved competing; guess it’s the reason I’m a athletic director and coach today.

different kinds. In addition to its on-site facilities — which include room and board for women and children needing somewhere to stay, children’s camps and rehabilitation services — Safe Haven provides legal advice, medical care, transportation assistance, help with school and childcare needs, a separate center for adult male victims of domestic violence and off-site transitional housing to help victims get back on their feet. Last year, Kimberly Williams, the associate director and legal advocate at Safe Haven, estimated that the local organization gets about 1200 crisis calls a year from the area it covers: Bulloch, Screven, Jenkins, Effingham, Candler and Washington counties. She said that almost 800 of those calls are from Bulloch County alone, with a high percentage coming in from Georgia Southern University or Ogeechee Technical College. With so many clients, all of this assistance takes time and a herculean effort on the part of Safe Haven’s staff. Just as important, however, is the money that enables the organization to provide the programs and assistance that it does. Safe Haven receives a flat

'Perfect Guy,' 'The Visit' suprise at box office LOS ANGELES — The Perfect Guy and The Visit sailed past modest opening weekend expectations — and budgets — locking in debuts in the mid-$20 million range thanks in part to good timing and robust female turnout. The Perfect Guy, a PG-13 rated thriller starring Sanaa Lathan and Michael Ealy, secured the first place spot with $26.7 million, according to Rentrak estimates on Sunday. The Sony/Screen Gems film cost only $12 million to produce. M. Night Shyamalan's nail-biter The Visit, a $5 million production from micro-budget horror-makers Blumhouse, took a close second with an estimated $25.7 million for distributor Universal. Both films are resounding successes on a weekend that often doesn't go noticed on the release calendar. "We're not breaking any records, but this is the perfect weekend for these films," said Paul Dergarabedian, the Senior Media Analyst for Rentrak. "Studios are finding a land of opportunity in weekends that were heretofore 'slow weekends' at the box office and proving that audiences are always looking for new content." Female audiences helped The Perfect Guy shoot to the No. 1 spot. An estimated 69 percent were women

and 58 percent over the age of 25. "It bodes well for the longevity of the film. Not only is it a date movie, but it's a film that girlfriends are going to go to together as well," said Rory Bruer, Sony's President of Worldwide Distribution. Audiences also gave the film a promising A- CinemaScore. The Visit also saw a majority female audience (60 percent) on opening weekend, although existing crowds gave this one a B- CinemaScore. This is the eighth successful $20-plus million opening for producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions, which specializes in micro-budget horror films including the Insidious and Paranormal Activity series. In third place, War Room continues to prove mightily powerful with $7.4 million in its third weekend in theaters, but the faith-based categorization isn't always a sure revelation. A Walk in the Woods and Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation rounded out the top five with $4.7 million and $4.2 million, respectively. Mission: Impossible also earned a gigantic $91.3 million internationally this weekend, with China accounting for $86 million of the total. This weekend was in some ways the last gasp before the fall movie season starts in earnest with a number of high profile releases.w

C: Who are your actors? Tell us a little bit about them. P: The cast is comprised of several Averitt Stars members you’ve seen and enjoyed in previous productions on the Emma Kelly Theater stage. However, I was able to recruit two rookies to the stage. They joined right in and became part of the community theater family immediately. C: Several of the main characters are very young. Have you cast kids in the leading roles? What’s it like, having young actors carrying an ensemble of actors of different ages? P: I have always loved working with children, youth and adults in my theater productions over the past 10 years. The blend of people of all ages help me stay in touch with all the generations. C: What are some of the chal-

lenges with this kind of comedic piece? P: The timing of the comedy is the key. We work together with the lines and the action to make sure we project and present the humor in the production for all to enjoy. C: What are you most excited for the audience to see? What do you hope they enjoy? P: I am most excited for the audience to see the end result of the hard work and dedication of this group of local folks who have gotten together over the past few weeks to present fine community theater. I hope the audience enjoys some laughter, amusement and perhaps a surprise ending. Reservations for the dinner and for the shows can be made through the Averitt Center box office. The dinner costs $15 to attend. Tickets to the show are $14 for adults and $10 for youth.w

Representatives, and served six terms as a U.S representative afterward. Another “pioneer” local attorney, William Gesmon Neville, will be featured during the tour, he said. Neville was solicitor general for the Ogeechee Judicial Circuit from 1929 to 1940, and served as Statesboro’s solicitor of the city court from 1950 to 1956 and again from 1961-1964. The spirits of an intriguing couple, Ward and Rebecca Franklin Morehouse, will delight tourists with tales of life in New York, according to McGlamery. A Statesboro native, Rebecca Morehouse graduated from the University of Georgia in Athens and later wrote for the Birmingham News and the Atlanta Journal. Then, she married Ward Morehouse, a Southern-born drama critic at the New York Sun, and moved to New York. She remained in Manhattan after her husband’s death in 1967, writing a column for Playbill magazine and a play, “Prom Party,” which was produced at George Southern University. Ward Morehouse worked as a reporter for the Savannah Press and Atlanta Journal. There will also be “guest spirits” of friends of the couple – Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, McGlamery said. This part of the tour’s scene will be a replica of a

room at New York’s Club 21. Another noted Statesboro native who will greet tourists is Walter Aldred, whom McGlamery described as a “noted 20th century architect” who designed GSU’s Rosenwald Building, Statesboro’s First Methodist Church and the old Bulloch Memorial Hospital. All of these people are buried in Statesboro’s Eastside Cemetery, with the exception of Bogart and Bacall, he said. A “guest spirit” of a man who is also not buried at Eastside Cemetery will be portrayed by renowned local actor and producer Mical Whitaker, who will greet guests as the spirit of William James, a professor who positively impacted Statesboro by opening the City Colored School in 1907, which eventually was named after him. The William James Education Complex, formerly the school, is located on Williams Road in Statesboro. Growth prompted the school, William James Middle School, to move to its current Hwy. 80 West location. Anyone seeking tickets for the upcoming 2015 “Tales from the Tomb tours may visit the Statesboro Herald office at 1 Proctor Street. More information may be obtained by dialing (912) 764-9031. There will be eight tours, lasting about 45 minutes each, McGlamery said.

We now have the ability to draw an invisible fence who are located within its boundaries.

For example, an auto dealer can place “fences” around all other auto dealers and deliver his ad to those who enter the fence while they are on their mobile devices.

VIRGO (Aug. 23– Sept. 22) — If your budget is shrinking, you'll have to concentrate on increasing your income or freeing up some cash. Working overtime or offering a service on the side will solve your problem. LIBRA (Sept. 23–Oct. 23) — Inject some excitement into your itinerary. Facing new challenges will put you in contact with people who have similar tastes and desires. Get a fresh perspective; go out and take action. SCORPIO (Oct. 24– Nov. 22) — Trying to mediate a quarrel between friends or neighbors will have negative repercussions. Remain neutral so that you are not blamed for taking sides. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23– Dec. 21) — Be assertive. You have to let people know what you are capable of. Unless you showcase your talent or express your ideas, you won't generate any help. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22– Jan. 19) — Don't mix business with pleasure. Before you take action, make sure you have the applicable information. Taking action based on false premises will cause a setback. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20– Feb. 19) — In your rush to complete a project, you will neglect an important detail or step necessary for success. Double-check your efforts in order to ease your stress.

PISCES (Feb. 20– March 20) — Stick to the facts. Getting into emotional battles will not help your cause. Decide if you want to call the shots or follow someone else's lead. ARIES (March 21– April 19) — Love is on the rise, and so is the possibility of a conflict of interest. Carefully choose what you do and say to avoid sending the wrong signal. TAURUS (April 20– May 20) — Don't leave yourself defenseless. One of your opponents may be trying to derail your plans. Consider the motives of anyone who is pressing you for information regarding your personal or professional plans. GEMINI (May 21–June 20) — Devote yourself to your career plans. If you have unresolved issues in your personal life, keep them separate from your work life. Focuse on productivity. CANCER (June 21– July 22) — The same methods that have been successful in the past have relevance to the issues you are facing now. A change of scene will provide a spark in your romantic relationship. LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) — Stop taking things too seriously. Get out and have some fun with friends, family members or colleagues. A few good laughs will brighten your mood and improve your relationships.w

Holli Deal Saxon MAKE UP YOUR MIND — Police responded to Statesboro Place Circle, where they spoke with a man who first claimed to have been struck by a car, then said he fell down stairs. He was checked at a hospital and found to have no injuries. WE AIN'T SAYING HE'S A GOLD DIGGER — A Woodyard Court, Brooklet woman said her estranged husband, with whom she is trying to work out problems via lawyers, withdrew about $19,150 from a joint account without her knowledge. He

left her $38 and some change. GONE MUDDING — It’s a popular pasttime to go mud bogging, but one man didn’t like the fact that two young men were tearing up "his" road. The younger fellows told deputies a man chased them from Polk Road, where they were bogging. The offender chased them home in a red Ford F-150 and stood on their porch for a while, claiming he would be back with a gun. The offender admitted having chased them because he was tired of them tearing up the road and wanted to talk to their parents.w
