The Averitt Center brings audiences Shakespeare's "Macbeth" — plus zombies Something wicked this way comes — dropping limbs and hunting brains on the way. Zombie Macbeth, a Shakespeare classic with a twist, will debut in the Emma Kelly Theater this weekend. Featuring Statesboro Youth Theatre and members of the communityat-large, the show will run on Friday, June 26, and Saturday, June 27 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, June 28 at 2 p.m. In a postapocalyptic world, zombies roam the earth while King Duncan rules the last of humanity in an underground sewer encampment. Macbeth returns from a victorious battle against the zombies and is given newfound power in the kingdom. However, unbeknownst to all — even himself — Macbeth has contracted the zombie virus during his time aboveground, turning him into a bloodthirsty killer who will stop at nothing to be king. This play is an infectious and raucous production, relentless in suspense and danger as good battles evil, humans attempt to protect themselves against a zombie infiltration, and Macbeth loses his mind to the virus. Make no mistake, however: This is the same script Shakespeare fans are familiar with. To accommodate his theme, director John Forrest Ferguson changed literally one word — turning " 'Wegions" (the foes of the

original script) to "zombies" — and didn't even break iambic pentameter. It's the same characters and same conflict as the original play, just adapted to fit the post-apocalyptic world Ferguson has created. "This is bringing Shakespeare to our community in an entirely different light," said assistant director Susan Jackson. "We hope to get our younger actors hooked on Shakespeare, so to speak. It’s going to be very exciting." The production is being directed by professional director and actor John Forrest Ferguson, with the assistance of Susan Jackson. Devon Thompson will choreograph the performance. The role of Macbeth will be played by Tehrelle Billups, while Abigail Eller will portray the character of his power-hungry wife, Lady Macbeth. Audience members will have the opportunity to interact with cast members prior to the performance and are invited to dress in their best zombie attire. "This highly talented group has worked hard to bring this production to the Emma Kelly Theater. This is a performance and experience you won’t want to miss," said Tim Chapman, Averitt Center for the Arts Executive Director. Tickets can be purchased by calling (912) 212-2787, or by visiting the Emma Kelly Theater box office in downtown Statesboro. The box office is open Tuesday through Friday from noon–5:30 p.m.w

School district's diploma cover features wrong state seal KELSO, Wash. — High school graduates in Kelso, Washington, discovered an error when they received their diplomas during Saturday's graduation ceremony. The covers protecting the diplomas carried the state seal of Oregon. Kelso High School is in southwest Washington.

The error was discovered after the ceremony was underway. Students will receive new diploma covers. The diplomas are valid.w

For minor tooth movement of teeth in adults, they work well if the patient will wear them 24 hours a day. The biggest problem is that often people will remove the retainer and not wear them as instructed. Their cost is equal or slightly above the cost of conventional braces. So yes, they are expensive.

— a fraternity website ran a sexist column last year, and I went to town with a gleeful vengeance. Bearing in mind that I am no expert, here are a few things I think we should all keep in mind when communicating online. 1. If you wouldn't say it to someone's face, looking them in the eye, then don't post it. There are countless studies and stories online about why many Internet users believe the barrier of a screen gives you license to be intolerably rude and hurtful toward other people. Whatever the reason, if you would shy from saying it in person — whether it's because you'd be ashamed to say it or because you think the other person would punch you for it — you shouldn't write it online. It's not a question of freedom of speech. It's a question of not being one of the many words I'm not allowed to print. 2. Don't take on a fight you're not ready to see through. Internet nastiness becomes real-world nastiness a lot faster than you might think, and your identity is not as difficult to crack as you'd like it to be. Check out "A Dish Best Served Cold" on The Moth. In this story, a guy gets revenge on a woman who stole his identity with a little online sleuthing and sends her to jail for a digital crime. Or take a look at the Gamergate controversy, or the feminist bloggers at Jezebel. The women of these cases have had their online harrasers show up, in person, to public events to threaten and intimidate them. Some of these women have been the victim of "doxing," a process in which a savvy hacker can ferret out the personal details behind an online identity and release them to the public eye. Doxing can be used against the bullies, too, as we saw last November when the hacker group

Anonymous doxed the leader of the KKK after he publicly threatened people in Ferguson. These threats are out there, and if you're going to piss off people online — especially if you're going to do it for sport — you should be aware of them. (Of course, if you're harassing people online for sport, no one is going to feel particularly sorry for you if your cover gets blown.) 3. If you would be embarrassed if your child saw what you wrote — or if your child repeated what you wrote — don't post it. Ours is the last generation to remember, even vaguely, a time before the Internet. Our kids are growing up in an online culture, and they learn by repeating what they see. They are also extremely likely to repeat it in a not-digital setting. Like their classrooms. Have fun at those parent-teacher conferences, trolls. 4. Most importantly, remember that every single person online is a human being. Here is what Lindy West, formerly of Jezebel, says about taking on trolls: "They are human beings — and I don't believe that their attempts to dehumanize me can be counteracted by dehumanizing them. The only thing that fights dehumanization is increased humanization — of me, of them, of marginalized groups in general, of the Internet as a whole." You don't have to like them and you don't have to agree with them, but you do have to show them the decency their humanity deserves, even the ones who are not showing that same courtesy. Now, go play nice in the digital sandbox.

'A dynasty is born' Retrospective: Eagle football brings home first national championship in 1985 In the summer of 1985, folks in the quiet little South Georgia town of Statesboro had no idea what the next few months had in store. And they had no clue what kind of impact the upcoming fall would have on the next few decades. Alex This week, we honor the 30th anniversary of Georgia Southern’s first national championship by taking a look back at 1985. If you think Statesboro is a small town now, you should have seen it 30 years ago. Fair Road, one of the busiest roads in town, was only four-laned to Gentilly, and there was nothing where the hospital and market district is now. The shopping center and restaurants across from the mall were just woods in the mid-1980s. The bypass (Veterans Memorial Parkway) did not exist, very few of the restaurants we enjoy today were here, and there was no Wal-Mart (GASP!). Not as we know it now, anyway: Wal-Mart was in the mall, and much smaller. Franklin’s Restaurant, the Nic Nac Grill, Vandy’s BBQ and Snooky’s were some of the most popular restaurants in town, and children enjoyed celebrating birthdays at the Skate Inn and playing at the recreation department on Fair Road. Enrollment at Georgia Southern College was just over 6,000 in 1985 and the population of Statesboro was right around 15,000. Hit movies of 1985 included Back to the Future, Rambo and The Goonies. The most popular television shows were The Cosby Show, Who’s the Boss and Miami Vice. Billboard’s top songs included “Like a Virgin” by Madonna, “Careless Whisper” by Wham! and “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis and the News. The average price of a gallon of gas was just over a dollar, stamps were $0.22. New Coke was introduced in the summer of ’85, only to be scrapped in favor of returning to the original formula after consumer uproar.

In the fall of 1985, head coach Erk Russell led the Georgia Southern Eagles to a 9-2 record and a No. 9 national ranking to end the program’s second regular season at the NCAA I-AA level. Southern had finished the 1984 season with an 8-3 Brown record, but did not receive an at-large bid to the playoffs. The

Eagles would not miss the playoffs again until 1991. Georgia Southern hosted Jackson State in the program’s first-ever I-AA playoff game and shut them out 27-0. In the quarterfinals the following week, Georgia Southern hit the road to play the No. 1 team in the country, Middle Tennessee State. MTSU had defeated the Eagles 35-10 at Paulson Stadium earlier in the season. Southern shocked the I-AA world by jumping out to a 21-0 halftime lead and holding on to knock off the Blue Raiders by a score of 28-21. The Eagles advanced to play at Northern Iowa in a semi-final game that featured eight touchdowns, five field goals, 73 total points, over 1,000 yards of combined total offense, 52 combined first downs, eight lead changes and only four punts. With under a minute to go, junior quarterback Tracy Ham scored to break

a late tie and give the Eagles a 40-33 win. If the semi-final game sounded wild, the 1985 national championship game against Furman in Tacoma, Washington was even crazier. The Paladins took a 21-6 lead into halftime and scored early in the third quarter to stretch the lead to 28-6. Then Tracy Ham went absolutely bonkers. Georgia Southern turned its passing game loose, with Ham racking up 419 yards through the air (and also running for 90 yards) as the Eagles scored 38 points in the final quarter-and-a-half en route to the largest comeback in I-AA/FCS championship game history. A play simply known around these parts as “The Catch” saw Ham thread the needle to connect with Frankie Johnson in the endzone, with 10 seconds on the clock, to give Georgia Southern its first national championship with a 44-42 win over Furman. Georgia Southern would win four national championships over a sixyear span beginning with the 1985 season. A dynasty was born. And Statesboro hasn’t been the same since.w

Facebook's Oculus Rift is just one of the virtual reality headsets getting shown off at the annual E3 gaming conference in Los Angeles.

Virtual reality the hot topic of E3 2015



The biggest announcements this year include Bethesda’s Fallout 4, Microsoft’s Halo 5: Guardians and — of course — Activision’s Call of Duty franchise, to name just a few. Electronic Arts’ Star Webb Wars Battlefront, along with the new Mirror’s Edge game, is expected to be fan a favorite. Hopefully, there will be some news from Sony’s Uncharted 4 and Nintendo’s newest Legend of Zelda, both of which have been reportedly delayed. There doesn’t seem to be much planned hardware-wise, given that all the consoles are fairly new. There

was, however, an announcement of a 1TB model of the Xbox One that includes a new matte finish. Alongside their new model, Microsoft is going to be announcing a new controller for their Xbox One. With virtual reality becoming the newest trend, all the major players are expected to hit on their own VR headsets. Facebook’s Oculus Rift, HTC’s Vive, Sony’s Project Morpheus and Microsoft HoloLens are all expected to have a presence at E3. Bethesda has made history with their first-ever E3 conference in a Sunday that is usually quiet before the start of Monday’s press confer-

ences. Plenty of reveals, rumors and news are expected to be released all week. There will be plenty to keep gamers and enthusiasts happy, and we'll be covering it all.

Jumping out of an airplane is just one of the many things you can do in Statesboro while you're waiting for the entertainment scene to kick back up in the fall. If you're interested in skydiving, check out The Jumping Place, based right here in the Boro. ASHLEY ELAINE PHOTOGRAPHY/ special

Six things to do in Statesboro this summer If you're bored in the Boro this summer, you aren't thinking far enough outside the box. Luckily, we've found you find a few fun, unique and off-the-wall options for summer entertainment. Brittani Howell With the students gone for the summer, the night life in Statesboro has slowed to a trickle and won't pick up again until August. Sure, we have a few events to keep us going — such as the legendary trivia nights at Gnat's Landing and the summer music shows courtesy of Airbound Entertainment — but until school starts back, the Boro's entertainment scene is mostly in the doldrums. But here at Connect, we can't stand the idea that our readers might be— heaven forbid it—bored. And honestly, we couldn't stand being bored ourselves. We've taken it upon ourselves to find some of the most unique, off-the-wall experiences you can have here in the Boro when all your other options have run out. Before you give in to taking a summer "vacation" to spend a month at home with your parents, give these options a try.

Jump out of a perfectly good airplane Sometimes you get so bored over the summer that you just want to throw yourself out of a plane. Luckily, at the Jumping Place, you can — with a parachute and a tandem diver, of course. The Jumping Place (127 Airport Road, Statesboro), which set up shop in August of 2012, is Statesboro's very own skydiving company, run by a small and enthusiastic team of skydivers. According to the U.S. Parachute Association, it's one of only six "drop zones," or skydiving centers, in Georgia; the others are around or north of Atlanta. "We're kind of breaking the demographics here," said Jumping Place owner Catherine Kloess, saying that few skydiving businesses would have opened in an area as widespread and sparsely populated as Georgia's coastal

plain. "We're changing the face of skydiving. It's kind of cool." At The Jumping Place, not only can daredevils take their first dives with an instructor (called "tandem dives," in which the two skydivers are attached), but they also can start a training course for accelerated freefalls so that they can skydive without tandem partners and — perhaps — start the process of becoming skydiving instructors themselves. While skydiving is not the cheapest pastime in the world, it makes a great summer adventure or post-graduation gift to yourself. Interested parties are encouraged to book their skydiving appointment about two weeks in advance. Prices are listed on The Jumping Place's website, including links for discounts and group rates.

Go on a Southern Adventure Maybe jumping out of planes

isn't for you. Maybe you prefer to have your adventures a little closer to earth — hiking, for example, or rock climbing, camping or navigating regional waterways by canoe or kayak. If that's the case, check out Southern Adventures at the Georgia Southern Recreation Activity Center. On campus, this division of the RAC offers a rock climbing wall, a bouldering cave and a high-ropes course, but it's also a great resource if you want to get out of Statesboro. For remarkably low prices, Southern Adventures conducts guided outdoor adventure trips all over the Southeast region. This summer, Southern Adventure is offering three trips: a paddling excursion in early June, a canoeing day trip June 14 and a sea kayaking day trip in mid-July. The prices remain to be determined, but most trips are a complete steal compared to similar excursions conducted through other organizations. Throughout the school

as many as seven games being played at once. Newcomers and game night veterans are encouraged to bring along their favorite board games to contribute, and which might even make it into the game night's regular rotation. "It's not overly competitive," Brown said. "It's an easy atmosphere, and it's very easy to get into games and try things out." For something a little more intense, the game and comic store holds "Magic: The Gathering" tournaments on Thursday nights, starting at 7 p.m., and "Pokemon" tournaments on Saturdays throughout the day. The "Magic" tournaments cost $15 to enter, but they guarantee fun, competitive play for serious "Magic" gamers. As for past, present and future "Pokemon" masters, the Saturday tournaments are free and give gamers plenty of opportunities to win prizes from the store. However, amateurs beware: The tournaments are hyper-competitive and much more challenging than the board game nights. Brown said that first-timers interested in trying out tournaments may first want to play a few casual rounds, which are usually going on at the same time as the tournaments. "Usually that's how people get into it," Brown said. "They'll come in, see what's going on during the Magic events, maybe play some casual events, see the competitive play, and then they kind of ease their way into it." For more information, and to see which games are being featured each week, check out the Galactic Comics Board Game Night Facebook page.

Pick up gaming

Let's be real here: For many people, taking a whole summer of painting classes is a little too expensive and a little too time-consuming. However, Statesboro does offer an outlet for one's creative impulse: the Paint-NParty workshop, hosted by the Averitt Center for the Arts every month during F1rst Friday. Many larger cities, including Savannah and Atlanta, have offered similar activities for years, but the Paint-N-Party workshop is currently the only of its kind in the Boro. At each workshop, participants are set up with an easel, painting supplies and a completed painting off of which they can base their own masterpiece. Under the helpful guidance of one of

If you're looking for a casual game night with challenging, inventive board games, Galactic Comics' board game night on Friday evenings is the way to go. Beginning at 7 p.m. each Friday night at Galactic's 20 East Vine St. location, Board Game Night brings people together to play popular games like "Settlers of Catan" and "Munchkin," new games like "Betrayal at the House on the Hill" and "Love Letter," and a wide range of other games: detective, strategy, adventure — you name it.

year, Southern Adventures conducts several trips for cycling, rock climbing or backpacking, among other outdoor expeditions. If you prefer the Cheryl Strayed approach and want to go it alone, Southern Adventures is the best onestop shop for all the gear you might need and all the research you want to do. Their gear rental program includes everything from cookware and tents to canoes and bicycles, and everything is ridiculously inexpensive. Their most expensive listing is a weeklong rental for a single-deck boat, coming in at a miniscule $48. The knowledgeable staff members at Southern Adventures are ready and willing to give you any pointers you might need, including recommendations on the best kind of sleeping bag to take on your particular adventure. Additionally, their resource library is stocked with past trip logs, guidebooks, camping how-to guides and maps of all kinds. The gear also comes with handy QR codes: If you forget how to use any of the equipment you rented from Southern Adventures, a quick scan will take you straight to a YouTube instructional video of the Southern Adventures staff showing you what to do. Because the RAC and its programs are directly funded by student fees, Southern Adventures is only accessible for students, or for staff and faculty and their family members.

You can go your own way Going out on your own shouldn't have to be a scary experience. Here are a few tips for overcoming social anxiety and striking out on your own — especially if your friends are out of town for the summer.

Step 1: Know yourself

Take some time to genuinely assess the fundamental things that make you who you are: What you like and dislike, personal goals, character traits you possess and things you’d like to try. This will inform your decisions about what experiences to pursue and which people you should seek out. For instance, if you know you’re outgoing and enjoy music, you might find karaoke to be a fun way to meet new friends.

Step 2: Do your research Now that you have a better idea of what you’re looking for (and how

it fits with you personally), take some time to investigate relevant opportunities within the local area. Check out the event calendars in magazines (like this one!), on Georgia Southern’s webpage and at local establishments to see what fun events are happening in the near future, and then prepare to participate!

Step 3: Face your fears It’s an unpleasant truth, but the only way to overcome a feared object or event is to expose yourself fully to the experience of it. If you’re anxious in social situations (especially when you don’t know anyone,) the best way to resolve those fears is to take on opportunities which allow you to socialize with new groups. It might be helpful to set goals for yourself prior to going out — for example, you could challenge yourself to have at least two conversations with new people before you leave the establishment. If you become nervous, acknowledge it to yourself and breathe deeply until the discomfort lessens. Remember, however, that it’s always okay to leave a situation you feel is dangerous or unsafe.

Got a complaint? CONcern?

Step 4: Assess the experience Take some time to evaluate your perceptions of this new experience. Determine whether or not you truly enjoyed yourself and if you would like to have the experience again. Also, take time to assess which parts were most enjoyable and which were unpleasant so that you are more prepared to navigate similar experiences in the future. Importantly, don’t forget to congratulate yourself for being bold and trying something new!w

Although many students have retreated to their hometowns for a long summer reprieve, there are still a few of us staying in Statesboro to take additional courses. If you’re part of this remnant, you might be feeling a little bored or lonely, and you might feel like options for entertainment are slim due to your solo status.

SUMMER, from page 11 the Paint-N-Party instructors, participants learn the basics of completing their painting and unleash their inner Old Master. Painters are also invited to bring their own adult beverages to enjoy while they paint (if they're of age, of course). Each workshop costs $40 — unless you're a member of the Averitt Center, in which case it costs $35 — and includes all art supplies, right down to the 16x20 canvas on which you have painted your masterpiece, to be carried home and hung in the dining room (or to be hidden from the light of day after you've sobered up a bit). The next Paint-N-Party is scheduled for July 3, from 5:30–8 p.m. To reserve your spot, call the Averitt Center's Tony Phillips at (912) 212-2787. And don't forget the wine.

Fall back in time If you have ever witnessed sword fighting in Mill Creek Park or archery at any of the ArtsFest events, you are probably already somewhat familiar with the Society for Creative Anachronism. Here's what you probably didn't know: Far from a group of renaissance festival enthusiasts, the SCA is a legitimate, registered nonprofit, with bases in several different countries—including New Zealand. They are considered a "living history"


T. J. Carani hammers metal into a small knife during Jour d'Amour, a Society for Creative Anachronism event run in January by the Bulloch area group.


The Ogeechee Riverkeepers are teaming up with Paddle Georgia for a battle royale in downtown Statesboro, in which teams of four compete in a canoe tug-of-war competition to raise money for conservation awareness (and earn serious bragging rights). group, and they throw themselves into research on an endless variety of antiquated topics, mostly centered on the Middle Ages. And it's actually kind of intense. The society allows and even helps people to pursue research in any medieval field of which they are curious. If you want to learn medieval dances, you can. If you're curious about medieval music, someone can hook you up. If you'd like to explore arts and crafts, including forging weapons and recreating period clothing, there are plenty of experts around to help you get started. And if you want to pick up combat skills — and find venues in which to compete with them — these are the people to talk to. The society is divided into regional "kingdoms," further broken down into subgroups, usually called "shires." The local Statesboro group, for instance, is called Drakenmere, located in the Kingdom of Meridies (along with all of Alabama and parts of Florida and Tennessee). Each group has a system of government and each kingdom has a ruling hierarchy. It is much more complex, involved and consistent than a Renaissance Fair. The Anachronists of Drakenmere hold regular meetings, including business meetings the first Sunday of

each month and combat practice every Sunday in Mill Creek Park. Jumping into combat practices and skills workshops is completely free and beginnerfriendly. Some events require attendees to be dressed in period clothing, but the group is happy to set up beginners with borrowed garb until they can afford their own. For schedules, events and other information, check out their Facebook page and their website, www.

Paddle battle This next event combines water sports and team competitions, with a side benefit of raising money for a local environmental conservation group: the Canoe Tug-of-War, scheduled for the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority's Staycation celebration Saturday, June 20. Paddle Georgia and the Ogeechee Riverkeepers are closing off East Main Street to set up an aboveground pool, in which two canoes—each carrying a team of four—will battle against the other in an effort to paddle to their own side of the pool. The first team to touch their side of the pool wins; flip your canoe twice, and you lose the round. Each team is guaranteed two rounds in the double-elimination tournament. Each team must have at least

one female member. A team's entry in the tournament costs $40 to enter, but winners will take home a $100-cash prize and runner-ups will get their entry cost back. All tournament participants will receive membership status in the Ogeechee Riverkeepers, an honor that comes with free paddle trips throughout the year in addition to other ORK swag. Registration for the tug-of-war can be done on the Ogeechee Riverkeepers' website up until the tournament — but pre-registration makes the event coordinators' lives a little easier, so try for that. If you can't make the tug-of-war but still want to get out on the water this summer, Ogeechee Riverkeepers also conduct monthly day trips on the fourth Saturday of each month, guiding paddlers through a three- to four-hour exploration of the river. Day trips are $35 for non-members, and canoes and kayaks are available for an extra rental fee. Registration for each day trip ends at 4 p.m. the day before the trip. The next day trip is scheduled for July 25, and the excursions will continue through the fall. To register for the tug-of-war or learn more about the paddling trips, check out the ORK website at

'Time to Go' for The Orange Constant First album release heralds start of a new era for homegrown jam band SPECIAL

According to Guentert, this theme was such an organic element of the album that even the band mates didn't realize it was there until after the album had been completed. “I can tell you, just in general, we all wrote the lyrics for the different songs, but they definitely capture where we’re at right now with this recently-post-grad-college thing," Guentert said. "We’re all plugged into that, and it’s a unifying theme of the album, but it was never addressed or explicitly stated. I wouldn’t tell you that’s exactly what (the album) is interpreted as, but I would say that experience has shaped how the album turned out, especially the message of the songs.” The Orange Constant will perform at Gnat's Landing for an album release party celebrating "Time to Go"'s digital drop. Fans can expect to hear plenty of songs from the new album, in addition to a few carefullyselected covers. Notably, the release party will be one of their last few shows as Statesboro residents: In late July, the group will be moving to Athens to concentrate their efforts on performing full-time. They don't have another album in the works just yet, but Guentert said they are always writing and working on new material, and they hope to find a niche for their music in Athens' music scene. "Sometimes we’re stuck in the

We’re all about providing a variety of songs in a live setting to keep people interested and engaged.” The band will, of course, be stopping by their home base for shows on the road.

This week, another local band will graduate from the bar scene with the release of their first album: The Orange Constant, who will drop the 10-song album Friday, June 19 at Gnat's Landing. Fans of the group will recognize most of the songs on the album, although this may be the first time they can attach a title to the tune. All of the tracks are songs local audiences should recognize from the band’s shows. The album's title, "Time to Go," is drawn from the lyrics of "Emily," a familiar staple on their set list.

Nailed it (or not) Adventures in failed Pinterest projects For many of us, Pinterest can provide endless inspiration to enhance nearly anything. Wedding decorations, baby shower games, home furnishings, and dessert recipes all can be invigorated with the spark that comes from an eye-catching pin. A session of pinbrowsing paired with a healthy dose of summer boredom might lead to a vast array of artfully crafted Independence Day wreaths, seashell-encrusted picture frames, or delicious smelling homemade candles. Many times, though, unbridled optimism and good intentions only get us so far, and we wind up with bruised self-esteem after hurling a half-finished project at the well-meaning friend who suggested we "should take a break and calm down.” Doesn’t it drive you crazy to have something so carefully planned in your head, but which only falls apart in your hands? Or is it just me? It’s true that I have a tendency to get worked up

easily, but even my most mild-mannered, even-tempered friend has taken his frustrations out on an unfortunate board while attempting a pallet-crafted wine rack that just wouldn’t turn out as he’d planned. The entire patio was filled with the splinters that rained down from his exasperation and wrath. For me, it’s always the recipes that cause my blood pressure to rise, whether it’s because the ingredients are too expensive (Why does a jar of allspice cost $12 at Wal-Mart?! The recipe calls for ½ teaspoon. Y’all can keep it.) or too rare (Never again will I drive to Pooler to locate Garam Masala.) or too dangerous to prepare (Yep, I’m the girl who filets open her finger with a paring knife, then runs around the kitchen with her hands over her head, screaming “Lord, help me! Get the cornstarch! Don’t look at it! Don’t look at it!”). The stress that accompanies a potentially epic fail only heightens

when the craft is meant to be a gift for someone else, because the number of people you might disappoint grows to accommodate the number of people on the receiving end of your wellintended gesture. Take a moment and visualize a birthday bash made complete by the drooping, misshapen cake pops you offered to contribute to the festivities. Imagine all the ways your lovingly prepared sharpie mugs and plates might backfire when they come out of the oven with the lettering now a disheartening shade of beige! Consider the embarrassment of a dinner party filled with guests who shovel your “Mouthwatering! Foolproof!” paleo recipe into little mounds on their plates without

Indominus Rex prepares to attack in a scene from "Jurassic World."

'Jurassic World' bites off record global debut LOS ANGELES — Dinosaurs are anything but extinct at the box office. Jurassic World, the fourth film in the series, became the highest global opener of all time with a staggering $511.8 million in its first days in theaters. It also devoured a number of domestic box office records with a $204.6 million take, the Rentrak media-measurement company estimated on Sunday. The film brought in a whopping $208.8 million in its first weekend

in theaters, according to Universal Pictures on Monday — making it the highest-grossing opening weekend of all time. "This over-performed in a way that I've never seen," Rentrak's Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian said. "It broke the box office sound barrier." Universal Pictures and Legendary co-financed the $150 million, PG-13 rated film. Audiences in every quadrant turned out to see the film

actually eating any. Think of the comic relief the neighbors will gain from admiring the burlap disaster that is your sister’s new front door wreath! Attempting a Pinterest creation doesn’t have to be a catastrophe, though. Sometimes you might get lucky and end up with a beautiful, original masterpiece. There’s a certain pleasure, too, that comes from someone exclaiming “You MADE that?” when they admire your well-executed handiwork in bewildered disbelief that it isn’t store-bought. All I’m saying is that those of us with a bend toward perfectionism and anxiety should embark on all Pinterest-related endeavors with a healthy dose of selfforgiveness and lowered expectations, and things will probably turn out alright. It’s important to remember, too, that most of the pins you see were prepared by experts of that craft and then professionally photographed and likely edited for maximum quality. Your finished product, however, will probably not be subjected to such careful preparation. With that being said, go forth, have fun and unleash that summer boredom on some recipes, crafts and decorations. Even if it isn’t something worth bragging about, it’ll surely make for an entertaining story later!w

According to exit polls, 39 percent were under the age of 25, signifying the massive interest of both a new generation and the continued enthusiasm of those who saw "Jurassic Park" in 1993. Directed by Colin Trevorrow and executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, "Jurassic World" is the third in a series of blockbusters for

star Chris Pratt, who also starred in the 2014 box office hits "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "The Lego Movie." This is also likely not the last "Jurassic" film audiences will see. Pratt has stated in interviews that he has signed on for future installments. But right now, Universal is focusing on what's in theaters.w

GEMINI (May 21– June 20 — You may be busy, but making time for a friend in need should take precedence. Your dependability and trustworthiness will be appreciated and will bring you unexpected rewards. CANCER (June 21– July 22) — Look into your family tree. The things you learn about your lineage will help explain some of the current issues facing you and will give you insight into your future. LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) — You will fall behind if you underestimate your competition. Dig below the surface to find out the details that will lead you to victory. VIRGO (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) — Don't be too open about your dreams. You have a lot riding on being the best, and sharing your ideas will give someone the opportunity to steal your thunder. LIBRA (Sept. 23– Oct. 23) — Don't share personal information. Someone will use it to smear your reputation. Instead of being disappointed by someone, step up and take control of whatever situation you face. SCORPIO (Oct. 24– Nov. 22) — Reflecting on your past will give you an outline for what you need to do in the future. You will come out on top once you have your game plan in place.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23– Dec. 21) — There is money to be made if you are savvy. Don't fork over any of your own cash on a risky investment. Be prudent and look for ways to increase your bank account and save money. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22– Jan. 19) — You will be oversensitive today. Don't take everything to heart. Make personal changes that will amp up your confidence. Accept a social invitation and have a little fun. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20– Feb. 19) — Love is in a high cycle. Embrace any opportunity to increase your knowledge and broaden your job prospects. Lady Luck is smiling on you, and a great idea will turn into a prosperous venture. PISCES (Feb. 20–March 20) — Use your versatility and creativity to the maximum extent. Brainstorming with other successful individuals will give you insight into marketing trends and strategies. Join forces with someone unique. ARIES (March 21–April 19) — Your old friends may be jealous of a new acquaintance. Make sure to spend time with people who have always been in your corner. A casual remark could be damaging if it's misinterpreted. TAURUS (April 20–May 20) — Listen to what others are saying and observe what they are doing. By exchanging ideas and information with others, you will find solutions.w

Holli Deal Saxon BABY'S DAY OUT — A North College Street business owner called police when an unusual customer walked in: a nude toddler. The child was not accompanied by anyone, and police learned the child had been left with his 82-year-old disabled grandmother on Church Street. Police notified social workers of the incident. STEALING WOOD — From Boy Scouts, no less! An East Main Street woman told police her boyfriend stole firewood from the Boy Scouts of America property, built a fire, was drinking and became angry. He threatened harm to her and others in the home. Police located and arrested the man. KNIFE FIGHT — Warrants are

being issued for two men who fought outside Renaissance Apartments Tuesday. Police reports listed the incident as aggravated assault with a knife and indicated a person was injured, but reports failed to list details of the injury. ROBBERY AND STALKING — A woman said two armed men entered her Cambridge-at-Southern apartment Saturday and demanded her wallet. The men held her and another victim at gunpoint while they searched her apartment. Police are investigating a separate incident at the apartments, with other people involved. A man reported finding his ex-girlfriend outside his apartment, allegedly stalking him, in the bushes.w
