Paula Deen's Savannah Style
With its lush gardens, stately town houses, and sprawling plantations, Savannah is the epitome of old Southern style, and who better to give you the grand tour than Paula Deen, the city’s most famous resident and anointed Queen of Southern Cuisine?
In this gorgeous, richly illustrated book, Paula Deen shares a full year of Southern living. Whether it’s time to put out your best china and make a real fuss, or you’re just gathering for some sweet tea on the porch at dusk, Savannah style is about making folks feel welcome in your home. With the help of decorator and stylist Brandon Branch, you’ll learn how to bring a bit of Southern charm into homes from Minnesota to Mississippi. For each season, there are tips on decorating and entertaining. In the spring, you’ll learn how to make the most of your outdoor spaces, spruce up your porch, and make your garden inviting. In the summer, things get more casual with a dock party. Sleeping spaces, including, of course, the sleeping porch, are the focal point of this chapter. In the fall, cooler weather brings a return to more formal entertaining in the dining room, and in the winter, attention returns to the hearth, as Paula and her neighbors put out their best silver and show you how they celebrate the holidays.
Paula loves getting a peek at her neighbors’ parlors, so she’s included photographs of some of Savannah’s grandest homes. From the vast grounds of Lebanon Plantation to the whimsically restored cottages on Tybee Island, you’ll see the unique blend of old-world elegance and laid-back hospitality that charmed Paula the moment she arrived from Albany, Georgia, with nothing but two hundred dollars and a pair of mouths to feed. And she isn’t shy about giving you a window into her own world, either. From her farmhouse kitchen to her luxurious powder room, you’ll see how Paula lives when she’s not in front of the camera.
Packed with advice and nostalgia, Paula Deen’s Savannah Style makes it easy to bring gracious Southern living to homes north and south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
2CAB welcomes new leaders

CAMP HUMPHREYS — The 2nd Combat Aviation Brigade has seen a multitude of valiant leaders come and go over the years and this summer was no different for the Talon family. The brigade said goodbye to Lt. Col. Julius A. Rigole Jr., outgoing commander of the 602nd Aviation Support Battalion, and to Lt. Col. Erik Rude, outgoing commander of the 3rd General Support Aviation Battalion.
Fortunately for the Talon Brigade, the new faces around the halls of the Warhorse and Nightmare battalions are no stranger to the full spectrum training regimen.
The incoming commander for 602nd ASB, Lt. Col. James A. Duncan took over the reins of the Warhorse Battalion on a gorgeous South Korean morning here during an hour-long change of command ceremony.
Immediately before the ceremony, Col. James T. Barker, the 2nd CAB commander, held a awards ceremony for the highly decorated outgoing commander, during which Brig. Gen. Charles Taylor, the 2nd Infantry Division assistant division commander for maneuvers, praised Rigole for all of his hard work and dedication to 2nd ID during his command here.
As the only aviation support battalion here in Korea, hard work was almost assured for Rigole from the time he got off the plane in Incheon to the time his boots left the Korean soil and Barker echoed the same sentiment.
“We are a maintenance brigade that sometimes flies,” said Barker. “If it were not for the Soldiers and civilians working hand-in-hand in the Warhorse battalion each and every day we would undoubtedly be a static display brigade.”
For Rigole, it was the hard work of those same Soldiers that made his time here so special and from his speech to the battalion it was noticeable that leaving the Soldiers he helped mold and grow over the last two years was going to have a lingering effect on him.
“To the Soldiers of the Warhorse battalion, I could go on and on about the many accolades and accomplishments you have achieved over the last two years from winning the 8th Army Award for Maintenance Excellence, to setting the standard for the division in combat patrol qualifications, to hosting peninsula wide combative tournaments,” Rigole said. “It has been an honor to be your commander.”
Duncan, a former aviation maintenance captain who worked on the same ramp just 14 years prior, let the Warhorse Family know right away that it was an exciting homecoming for him.
“What an honor to be a member of the Warhorse Battalion and its rich history,” Duncan said. “And truth be told, I’m part of that history already. It was roughly 14 years ago that I was stationed right here at Camp Humphreys, right here working on this very ramp, and in this very hangar. Back then it was the C Company 52nd Aviation Battalion also known as “the Flying Tigers.” I was a young captain working aviation maintenance in what would become B Company, 602nd ASB.”
As the Warhorse Family welcomed its new leader to their ranks, the Nightmare battalion was busy preparing to welcome a new leader as well.
To kick things off for 3-2 GSAB, 2nd Infantry Division Commander, Maj. Gen. Michael Tucker, said goodbye to Rude during a brief awards ceremony in the Super Gym conference room.
Rude thanked the 2nd ID commander for attending the ceremony and recalled their first meeting.
“General Tucker, the day you took command you had all of your commanders and command sergeants major in the Camp Casey Theater and you told us what you expected,” Rude said. “You said many powerful things that day, but there is one that I must say loud. You said ‘If a leader is where his Soldiers are, he is probably in the right place.’ Sir, I took those words to heart and spent most of my time in the motor pool and the flight line. Those are the places where great things happen. Those words made my two years of command fun and rewarding.”
Barker noted Rude’s hard work for the unit.
“Although Erik has definitely made a significant impact on the Nightmare Battalion and he is definitely leaving the organization better than he found it and we will be sad to see him go, the good news is the Army has this change of command thing figured out,” he said. “When we lose one outstanding command team, we are provided with another one to replace them. Lieutenant Colonel David Snow is returning to Korea where he previously served as an assistant operations officer at Camp Stanley back in 2000,” said Barker. “I have the utmost confidence in his ability to assume command without missing a beat.”
Snow closed the ceremony with a subtle expression of appreciation for how Rude had run the battalion for the last two years by making it known that the Nightmare Battalion would continue to operate under a similar manner as his distinguished predecessor.
“Soldiers of the Nightmare battalion, you look great,” said Snow. “Your pride in service and professionalism are second to none. All policies and procedures remain in effect.”

About the Artists:
NEO – GEO – CLASSICISM :
combines the following tenets of Neoclassicism with and expressed through geometric abstraction:
1. a regard for tradition and reverence for the classics, with an accompanying distrust of innovation
2. a sense of literature as art--that is, as something "artificed" or "artificial," made by craft; hence the value put on "rules," conventions, "decorum," the properties of received genres.
3. a concern for social reality, and the communal commonplaces of thought which hold it together.
4. a concern for "nature"--or the way things are (and should be). This relates back to the distrust of innovation and inherent conservatism of neoclassicism. The artistic rules of old, for instance, Pope describes as having been "discovered, not devised" and are "Nature methodized"; so too, "Nature and Homer" are "the same" (Essay on Criticism 88ff., 135). This belief in "nature" implies a conviction that there is a permanent, universal way things are (and should be), which obviously entails fundamental political and ethical commitments.
Born in Nice during a period of Existentialist post-war France, Serge Armando, from his earliest days, was steeped in a backdrop of the blue skies of la Cote d’Azur. From proximity, his way was ushered into first hand experience with Flux and Les Nouveaux Realists.
In 1989, Armando accepted a position at Laguna Art Museum as Exhibition Designer. His first assignment, "Turning the Tide," an exhibition of early Los Angeles Modernists, introduced him to the spiritually-charged abstract works of Peter Krasnow and the hard-edged geometric works of John McLaughlin.
Artist and scholar Michael McManus said this of Armando, "Frontal, blunt, and totemic, [Armando’s] works confront viewers as primal plus-minus icons, but are also perceptually elusive in how they activate the viewer’s peripheral vision. Their workman-like massing of precise, flat, polychromatic acrylic, creates an arresting abstract yet pictorial arena. Like many pure abstract artists of the late twentieth century, Armando regards the non-objective as a visual language–still in its infancy–whose potential equals that of representation." In this way, Armando’s works are invitations for viewers to impose upon them their own visual idiolects, complete with their own experiential lexicons which have arisen from the viewers’ own distinct inventories of “heres” and “nows”.
Armando’s latest works are, as always, iconic and kinetic. The works document his lifelong immersion in competitive systems of organization. Each work of the series propagates squarely steadfast abstract geometric immediacy.
Over his thirty-year residence in Laguna Beach, Armando has played a decisive role in the careers of significant area artists and gallery owners. His works have exhibited in key local galleries and Museums, and have sold to some of Southern California’s most distinguished collectors of contemporary art. His recent, 2005, first place showing at Laguna Art Museum’s twenty-third annual art auction is testimony to his continued impact and import on the local art scene.
