BERLIN -- Contrary to the title, there are many shots in David M. Rosenthal's film “A Single Shot,” world-premiering Saturday at the Berlin International Film Festival. But the one that sets this story in motion takes place in the first few minutes of the movie. John Moon (Sam Rockwell) intently hunts a deer through a damp forest, but ends up hitting the wrong target, in cold mud. His shotgun blast catches Ingrid (Christie Burke), who, like John, is in the wrong place. She's hiding out in the nature conservancy where he has been poaching deer and pheasant.

It all started with the Kingston Trio. One day in 1963, a San Diego kid and his friends got their hands on an album by the popular folk group. Greg Deering, 12 at the time, recalls studying the musicians on the cover and thinking, "I've got to get a banjo" - not out of love for the twangy instrument but mainly because his pal already had a guitar. Fifty years later, Greg, his wife, Janet, and daughter Jamie preside over the bestselling banjo-making business in the U.S. From a small Spring Valley factory, the Deering Banjo Co. is having its best year ever, defying the U.S. skills gap and California's manufacturing doldrums.

I've used deer antler spray for two days now, and I've rarely felt better, though I do find myself with an overwhelming urge to grind my itchy noggin against big birch trees, and last night, as someone pulled into the driveway, I just suddenly froze in the high beams. Does deer antler spray really work? Obviously. Or it could be the latest take on snake oil. To find out, I'm testing the legal product personally. So far, there are no signs of aggression, a reported side effect of these so-called IGF-1 supplements.

Vijay Singh has admitted to taking a deer antler spray, which contains a substance banned by the PGA Tour, but the professional golfer says he didn't do so intentionally. “While I have used deer antler spray, at no time was I aware that it may contain a substance that is banned under the PGA Tour Anti-Doping Policy,” Singh said in a statement released Wednesday in response to a Sports Illustrated report that the golfer has taken a banned substance. “In fact, when I first received the product, I reviewed the list of ingredients and did not see any prohibited substances.” Singh was recently named in a SI report about a sports supplement company, Sports With Alternatives to Steroids, which claims to also have provided products for athletes including Singh and Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.
