Singer-Songwriter MusicFriday, June 10, 2011 Garland Jeffreys: The King of In Between (Luna Park)Formally, the biracial Coney Islander is a singer-songwriter in themanner of his artistic contemporary Bruce Springsteen and his collegebuddy Lou Reed--a singer-songwriter who needs a drummer. Jeffreys is agood guy with loyal friends who made a small name for himself inEurope but faded from view in his hometown 20 years ago. Now at 67 hebeats the odds by surpassing 1973's Garland Jeffreys, 1977'sGhost Writer, and all their lesser successors. Doing right bytitles like "I'm Alive" and "In God's Waiting Room," it's anothermortality album, and sure as bank fees there'll be more. But the goodones will all be different. Although in his in-between way Jeffreyswas on reggae early, the only attempted skank here is a pointedlyentitled economic crisis song called "All Around the World" thatyou'll wish bit down as hard as the not-dead-yet "'Til John Lee HookerCalls Me." Boogieing with a quickness, Jeffreys believes "Rock andRoll Music" will pick you up off the floor at 64, and Dylan guitaristLarry Campbell backs up this idea throughout. But Campbell isn't onhis Eurohit cover of David Essex's schlock classic "Rock On," andJeffreys rocks on all over it anyway. A&nsp;MINUS

In the tradition of The War That Saved My Life and Stella By Starlight, this poignant novel in verse based on true events tells the story of a boy's harrowing experience on a lifeboat after surviving a torpedo attack during World War II. With Nazis bombing London every night, it's time for thirteen-year-old Ken to escape. He suspects his stepmother is glad to see him go, but his dad says he's one of the lucky ones--one of ninety boys and girls to ship out aboard the SS City of Benares to safety in Canada. Life aboard the luxury ship is grand--nine-course meals, new friends, and a life far from the bombs, rations, and his stepmum's glare. And after five days at sea, the ship's officers announce that they're out of danger. They're wrong. Late that night, an explosion hurls Ken from his bunk. They've been hit. Torpedoed! The Benares is sinking fast. Terrified, Ken scrambles aboard Lifeboat 12 with five other boys. Will they get away? Will they survive? Award-winning author Susan Hood brings this little-known World War II story to life in a riveting novel of courage, hope, and compassion. Based on true events and real people, Lifeboat 12 is about believing in one another, knowing that only by banding together will we have any chance to survive.

I have visited a family gravesite at this cemetery since 1991 and always looked at the flags on my way out. Just a month ago, I noticed a change. The Confederate flag was gone and had been replaced by the well-known, black and white MIA-POW flag. I inquired as to why the change and could not get an answer. On manager surmised it had been a teenage prank. But to date, the MIA-POW replacement flag is still there. It is private property and the owners of the cemetery may do what they wish, nonetheless it does seem to be a bit of a head-scratcher. 041b061a72
