November Notables .....

There were many dire predictions about crowds and long delays at the polls on Election Day.

The big surprise?

In Hanahan, there were only two of us in line who brought chairs.

I finished a novel during my 2-hour voting experience.

Mark your calendars NOW for the Alterman Studios' free monthly (2nd Monday) guest photography lecture series.

There was a great behind-the-scenes presentation Nov 10 by USAF decorated combat veteran Master Sgt Andy Dunaway, narrated by his wife, also a decorated veteran.

They both are elite Combat Photographers in the Air Force and showed an airborne view of activities in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Instead of Marines and Army soldiers kicking in doors in operations on the ground, they offered air-to-air and air-to-ground perspectives.
During a Q&A afterward, MSgt Dunaway said he didn't use a tripod.

"If I'm not going to carry a rifle into combat, why would I lug around a tripod?"


Mid-month, it was "Graduation Night" at Theatre 99 and a hiliarious "long form" recital by the large, VERY large, 4th level class of new Improv performers.

The original Have Nots trio of Greg, Timmy and Brandy have given much back to the community by offering an opportunity for talented people to hone their skills to amaze and amuse audiences.

Eleanor Hollings, (L) and Kirk Lindgrin, (R) help Geoff Marshall take a giant leap for comedy during the recital onstage antics.
