Community Help The Spitfire Grill

spitfire grill

By Amelia Anderson 

There’s two weeks left to rock and hear the Americana Folk-Roots music of “The Spitfire Grill.” Adapted from the 1996 sleeper film by Lee David Zlotoff, this ‘little show’ of theater director Timothy J. Borquez is a transformative musical, belted with passion and set within the sanctuary of New Hope Church.

Staged with the depth of real-life characters, the townsfolk of Gilead gather charmingly around the sacramental pouring of coffee and the spilling of gossip in their small town cafe. Singing disarmingly ‘about a feeling of Hope in this good heart of mine,’ the score and vocal direction portend the touching and healing of hearts.

It’s a cleverly concealed story of secrets, camouflaged as deep as the springs that make the river flow. “To a town with no future comes a girl with a past.” Sort of an update on ThorntonWilders 1938 play “Our Town,” defining family and the spirit of America. The Spitfire Grill is an allegory of War and the generational conflict created from the spitfire planes of World War II, through the heat of the Vietnam War, and the havoc wreaked on ‘Our Town.’

The theme of redemption, forgiveness and acceptance is depicted within the family structure of Hannah Ferguson, the mother figure who owns The Spitfire Grill. Her heart is lifted from it’s burden of shame secreting her ‘hero’ son’s’ whereabouts, and her husband’s subsequent demise. It’s the shadow of the Vietnam war staining our society. And the battle of souls still struggles back home.

A new gal enters the town in the middle of the night, escorted by the Sheriff, himself! Aware that the only possible job in town and bed prospect would be at the two story Spitfire Grill, he cajoles Hannah to the prospect that ‘help has arrived.’ Hannah returns this salvo with the fact that maybe she didn’t need any help, independent until she hurt her leg.

Percy is pretty independent herself, ‘a wild bird who doesn’t nest.’ But she can bandage up Hannah’s leg pretty good, and is a game dame at shaking and baking and ‘fryin’ in a pan’, though her prior life was limited to ‘openin’ a can’.

Guarding her own secret of jail time, Percy quickly unravels those of the town. With the closing of the mill, Caleb, Hannah’s nephew, lost both his job and manhood, and ‘town life’s gone downhill’. The Grills been up for sale ten years, irritating Caleb who covets inheriting the cash. Adding insult to injury, girlfriend Shelby aids and abets Percy in a scheme to raffle it off…to the party who deserves it the most!

New hope shines through Percy’s unfettered eyes. Broadening the Sheriff’s focus, she helps him see the forest rather than stopping at just a tree. She sings of hummingbirds in morning light, and forest walks of a hundred miles or more. ‘And Paradise came down last night to wash away the pain’ … seated now on a sunset swing reveals roots so deep you know you’ll never leave, Gilead.

A parallel play, set in the mountains of Sunland-Tujunga, would chart rivers and foothill paths for a hundred miles or more. And there’s plenty of dirt on hand…in the background of everyone you see. Just ask the local gossips who buzz around like bees. With myopic vision, they shoo and sting, anyone who chooses their praises not to sing. They bite the hand that fed them, employed them, and mentored them, like Dr. David DeMulle’.

The publisher of the Foothills Paper sugar coats it not, the gauntlet of news he critiques each throw, lands upright as often as naught. It’s not a musical yet, but you can read about it on Amazon. Just type in “STARS,” i.e., Sunland-Tujunga A Reality Show, chronicled by Dr. David DeMullé himself. Published last month, he’s gotten producer calls, but I believe a movie is closer to where it falls.

I dub the alternate working title “Don’t Mess With a PhD.” Because all lame brains who recourse jealously to steal his papers, the last laugh descends upon you. Thieve forth on your childish quest, dream on, steal on – throughout the night; all the more money goes in his pocket to engage and enrage your plight. Sonia, don’t be so f…ing serious. You’ll all become famous.

    These days, a person cannot be too careful. How do you know what goes on in your home when you are not there. Have you ever wished that you could see what is happening, either with the sitter, household help or even your own kids when you are out of the house? Here is a little trick that can help. It is mini security cameras.

    I have seen lots of useful issues on your internet site about personal computers. However, I have got the judgment that notebook computers are still not quite powerful sufficiently to be a good option if you frequently do projects that require many power, for example video touch-ups. But for internet surfing, microsoft word processing, and majority of other popular computer work they are perfectly, provided you do not mind small screen size. Many thanks for sharing your thinking.

    Thanks for giving your ideas right here. The other element is that any time a problem comes up with a personal computer motherboard, folks should not consider the risk associated with repairing this themselves for if it is not done properly it can lead to irreparable damage to the entire laptop. It will always be safe to approach any dealer of that laptop for that repair of its motherboard. They will have technicians who’ve an skills in dealing with pc motherboard problems and can have the right prognosis and perform repairs.

    I have realized some new things from your web-site about personal computers. Another thing I’ve always imagined is that computer systems have become an item that each house must have for several reasons. They offer convenient ways to organize the home, pay bills, shop, study, pay attention to music and in some cases watch tv programs. An innovative technique to complete these types of tasks is with a mobile computer. These computer systems are portable ones, small, effective and easily transportable.

    I have really learned result-oriented things by your blog. One other thing I’d prefer to say is newer personal computer os’s have a tendency to allow far more memory for use, but they likewise demand more storage simply to run. If someone’s computer is not able to handle additional memory plus the newest software program requires that ram increase, it is usually the time to buy a new Laptop. Thanks

  39. Laptop Recycling newbury

    Thanks for the ideas you have contributed here. Something else I would like to mention is that computer system memory demands generally rise along with other advances in the know-how. For instance, whenever new generations of cpus are brought to the market, there is certainly usually a matching increase in the scale preferences of both the personal computer memory and hard drive space. This is because the application operated simply by these cpus will inevitably surge in power to leverage the new technologies.

  40. laptop disposal

    One thing I want to say is before getting more laptop or computer memory, look into the machine in to which it can be installed. When the machine is running Windows XP, for instance, the memory threshold is 3.25GB. Setting up a lot more than this would just constitute a waste. Make sure that one’s mother board can handle an upgrade quantity, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

This is because the program operated by way of these processor chips will inevitably rise in power to use the new engineering.

  43. computer recycling companies

    Thanks for your blog post. The things i would like to make contributions about is that laptop or computer memory must be purchased if your computer can no longer cope with that which you do by using it. One can add two RAM boards containing 1GB each, as an example, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should check the manufacturer’s documentation for one’s PC to be sure what type of memory space is needed.

  44. Valentine Grave

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I think that you simply can do with a few percent to force the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I’ll definitely be back.|

  46. Laptop recycling maidenhead

    Things i have seen in terms of laptop memory is the fact that there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must match the features of the motherboard. If the computer’s motherboard is rather current and there are no operating-system issues, upgrading the memory space literally takes under an hour or so. It’s one of the easiest computer upgrade techniques one can envision. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

    One thing is one of the most prevalent incentives for utilizing your card is a cash-back or even rebate offer. Generally, you’ll receive 1-5% back upon various expenses. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1% returning on most expenditures, and 5% back on purchases made using convenience stores, gasoline stations, grocery stores and also ‘member merchants’.

  48. recycle ilion batteries bracknell

    Today, considering the fast way of living that everyone is having, credit cards have a big demand in the economy. Persons coming from every area are using credit card and people who aren’t using the credit card have prepared to apply for even one. Thanks for revealing your ideas on credit cards.

  49. recycle battery recycling newbury

    Thanks for these pointers. One thing I should also believe is that often credit cards providing a 0% apr often lure consumers together with zero interest, instant approval and easy online balance transfers, but beware of the most recognized factor that will probably void the 0% easy neighborhood annual percentage rate and throw you out into the terrible house rapidly.
