NOTE AND NOW, FOR MORE IRREVERENT FOREPLAY We’re exhausted. As an organization, we’re not very good at saying “no.” Or maybe we’re just too good at saying “yes.” Besides churning out daily content for boiseweekly.com, assembling the weekly print edition and selling ads like crazy to pay for it all, we spend a good deal of our personal time manning event booths throughout the summer and working extra-long hours testing the coldest beer all over Ada County. Last week’s Coldest Beer edition is a twomonth process, and this year, we did it while also ﬁnalizing the 2011 edition of Annual Manual, which is now at the press, and will hit stands on July 27. But don’t pity us too much—though we may pull a few late nights before big deadlines, we recently managed to squeeze in a midday drinking session in our conference room with the folks from Deschutes Brewery and team up with Northstar Cycle Couriers to throw the annual badass Bars and Stripes Alley Cat race. Which, coincidentally, also involved copious amounts of beer. So this week, now that Annual Manual is ﬁnished and the year’s coldest beer winner declared, we’re going to breathe a bit. Maybe sleep a little later. Maybe leave the ofﬁce an hour earlier. Maybe actually leave our desks for lunch. And we’re not going to feel bad about it because, though it may be the calm after a major storm, it’s also the calm before the next major tempest—Best of Boise. For the third year, we’ll split Best of Boise into two editions: Staff Picks, which publishes Sept. 21, and Readers’ Picks, which publishes Sept. 28. The purpose of the former is not to contradict the readers’ winners. It’s merely the irreverent foreplay to get you excited about the main event. Voting starts Wednesday, July 20, at boiseweekly.com. Check this same space that week for a QR code to take you directly to the voting landing page online. And for the ﬁrst time in a few years, we’ll host a Best of Boise party—because, frankly, after BOB has worked us over, we need a drink. We’re hammering out the details of the party, and as soon as we do, we’ll let you know. As for the week’s edition, News Editor George Prentice started reporting on the main feature before the subject of his story, Margaret Lawrence, passed away. Her death, like her life, touched many in Boise. Prentice’s story looks at her life and ﬁnal days. —Rachael Daigle

WHAT MAKES YOU THINK Red questions Cope’s edgercation credentials “What you been doing with yourself, Red? I haven’t seen you in a blue moon.” “A what?” “A month of Sundays.” “A what!?” “A coon’s age.” “A what!?” “A long time, Red. I’m just saying that I haven’t seen you in a long time.” “Well, why don’t you spit it out, Cope, and forget about all them blue coons and such? Besides, it ain’t my fault you ain’t seen me. I been coming to your house least once a week for months, trying to get you to answer the gull durn doorbell.” “Oh, that was you? I heard the dingdong, but I ﬁgured it was Jehovah’s Witnesses. So I’d duck down behind the philodendron and pretend I wasn’t home.” “You ain’t fooling me. I know what you were doin’. You was hunkered down on that Macinapple of yours, hatching up new ways to disrespect ol’ Tom Luna. Fact, you been on this anti-edgercation kick all year long. Don’tcha think people’re getting tired of it?” “Me anti-education? You’re nuts! Red, you’ll never meet a more pro-education person than me. You want anti-education, go check with your chum Luna. Go check with Hopalong Otter and that bunch of screw jobs who keep infesting the Legislature year after year. There isn’t a one of those corrosive creeps I’d trust to mow my lawn, let alone decide what constitutes a decent education.” “What makes you think you’re qualiﬁable to decide what a decent edgercation is, Cope? You ain’t no teacher. Hows do you know what yous acalling proedgercation ain’t really anti -edgercation? Especially since what yous been preaching goes against durn near everthin’ ol’ Tom Luna says needs t’ be done. And last time I looked, he was our superintenement of edgercation, not you. Or did you get that job since I seen ya’ last?” “Listen, pal. If I did have that job—not that I’d want it, but if I had it—I’d be a damn sight better at it than him. And you want to know why? Because unlike Luna, I know the difference between ‘education’ and ‘training,’ that’s why.” “What’s wrong with training, Cope? If it twern’t for someone training me, I’d have no idea hows to honeydip those septic tanks what puts food on my family’s table.” “That’s just the point, Red. Training is all well and good. We need it, sure. But let’s not confuse it with education. Training is what you do with jumpy dogs and ﬂabby bodies and people who need a marketable skill. Training’s for getting your hair to part a certain way or getting your little kid to use the toilet instead of his pants. You
6 | JULY 6–12, 2011 | BOISEweekly
train your horse to barrel race and your bonsai to lean one way over another. But training and education are two different things, Red. And I’m afraid we don’t have many leaders in this state who know the difference. Least of all Tom Luna. He’s a ‘trained’ man, not an educated one. Just remember, there’s a lot more to a wellrounded education than what kind of job you get.” “Now hold on a gull durn minute, Cope. What’s the point of an edgercation if’n it ain’t to train a feller for gettin’ a gull durn job? And when you say ‘well-rounded edgercation,’ you mean like ... what? Like learning to be both a dental assistant and a diesel mechanic?” “Uh … not exactly. I mean learning more than you need to know just to earn a paycheck. I mean learning so much about so many things that your brain needs to grow to ﬁt it all in and your understanding needs to stretch out like a girdle to make some sense and shape out of it. To cram so much history and geography and arts and literature and languages and science and math and philosophy and even miscellaneous trivia into your skull that, eventually, you transcend yourself. “That you realize you are part of something that is so much grander than a job market or a payroll or even an entire economy. To ﬁll your senses with so much knowledge that there’s no room left for ignorance and prejudice and savagery. To send kids forth from school with a desire for ever more schooling, with a craving to continue learning and a thirst for wisdom. That’s what I mean by a ‘well-rounded education,’ Red. Think of it this way … training plugs you in. Education sets you free.” “And what’s the point? What the U.S. of A. needs is more engineers, not more o’ your gull durn wisdom. We’ll be slipping off the top spot of the country pile if we don’t get our employee pool up to snuff.“ “Aw, so what? There are a lot of perfectly ﬁne countries full of perfectly ﬁne foreigners who don’t think they have to be the perpetual kings of the hill. And Red, have you seen any evidence that being No. 1 has made Americans any happier? Or any smarter? Or more responsible citizens?” “We don’t need to be smart an’ happy, Cope. N’r more responsible, neither. Wes’re already what they call ‘exceptionable,’ ain’t you heard? And wes need to stay exceptionable!” “We’ll save that ‘American exceptionalism’ discussion for another day, OK Red? I have a philodendron that needs watering, and by the way, sounds to me like your enunciation training is wearing off.” “What?”

BRAVE NEW BOOK Political scientist argues this is a police state The United States is a police state. Not in danger of becoming one. Is. And it’s too late to restore democracy. That’s the stark message of Andrew Kolin’s brave, lucid and important book State Power and Democracy: Before and During the Presidency of George W. Bush. Kolin comes out swinging: Illusions about America as a democracy, much less a benevolent one, don’t stand a chance. The United States, Kolin says, shares all the major attributes of a Third World police state: a constant state of emergency; sidestepping of laws by the government; excessive secrecy; the use of preventative detention and holding enemies of the state without ﬁling formal charges; the manufacturing of reasons to go to war. “The expansion of state power over the course of U.S. history came at the expense of democracy,” Kolin begins. “As state power grew, there developed a disconnect between the theory and practice of democracy in the United States. Ever-greater state power meant it became more and more absolute. This resulted in a government that directed its energies and resources toward silencing those who dared question the state’s authority.” Some ﬁnd Kolin’s deadpan delivery disconcerting or depressing. I think it refreshingly honest. Notice the past tense? The United States is over. It’s always been over. Creeping authoritarianism, Kolin says, began “not long after the end of the Revolutionary War.” A hundred pages in, you’ll either be stufﬁng rags into Molotov cocktails or slitting your wrists. I was surprised to learn that Kolin is a professor at Hilbert College in upstate New York. His methodical walk through U.S. his-

tory feels like a tight legal brief. The ﬁx was in from the start. “The framers [of the U.S. Constitution] needed to establish a government that could promote and protect property, regulate the economy, create an elaborate infrastructure, and acquire native Indian lands, adhering to the policy of North American expansion, while allowing the democratic surge from below to be both expressed and contained,” Kolin writes. Where the book becomes indispensable is its last third, focusing on the Clinton, Bush and early Obama administrations. This, the author argues, is when American citizens lost our basic freedoms and civil liberties. For Kolin, the USA Patriot Act, passed in haste by a cowardly Congress that hadn’t had time to read it after 9/11, marks the ﬁnal end of formal democracy in the United States. I can imagine one logical objection to Kolin’s thesis. The government may have the right to oppress, but it is not impelled to do so. So long as ofﬁcials are well-intentioned, stout of heart and full of integrity, they will refrain from abusing the rights they claim against us. However, our government is not run by such individuals. And even if it were, who would want to live in a nation where the difference between democracy and dictatorship relies on the whims of a coterie of elites? Though “a glimmer of hope seemed to appear after President Obama took ofﬁce,” Kolin shows how the Democratic president “merely modiﬁed police state practices.”If you’ve somehow managed to ignore Obama’s record over the last few years, and you’re still thinking of voting for him next November, this book will change your mind.

DAN HOLLAR AND NANCY LANDON ‘These are not scare tactics. These are the realities.’ GEORGE PRENTICE Dan Hollar and Nancy Landon have had a lot of homework lately. Hollar, public affairs administrator, and Landon, budget and ﬁnance administrator, both with the Boise School District, have been studying the numbers that make up the budget for the second-largest public school district in Idaho (Meridian is the largest). While Hollar and Landon don’t worry too much about the 2011-2012 school year, they have deep concerns about 20122013 and whether residents will make what they call “intelligent” votes in a supplemental levy election set for Tuesday, Aug. 30. How long have you been crunching numbers? Landon: About 20 years. I worked at the State Department of Education before coming to the Boise School District. I’ve been here 14 years. When is your department busiest? Landon: We begin the budget process in November for the following year, but I would have to say that we’re busiest from the end of the legislative session until the end of August. Has the Boise School Board of Trustees ofﬁcially approved the budget for 2011-2012? Landon: Yes. Now we’re rolling it out to all of our budget ofﬁcers.
8 | JULY 6–12, 2011 | BOISEweekly
Are budget ofﬁcers the equivalent of department heads? Landon: That’s right. There are about 30. Additionally, each principal is a budget ofﬁcer because every school has its own budget. Is the budget set in stone for the next year? Landon: Yes, but budget ofﬁcers have the ability of moving money around within their department. Hollar: Those department budgets have really been drastically cut over the last several years, so when you say, “set in stone,” well, that stone has been rolling downhill. How many schools are in the district now? Hollar: Approximately 50: ﬁve high schools, eight junior highs, 32 elementary schools. Plus we have the ASCENT [Alternative Students Courageously Exploring New Territory] program, a tech center, and the Madison pre-school. Didn’t you close another school this past year? Hollar: The Boise Language Academy operated at Jackson Elementary. It’s for students who don’t have English as their primary language. We’ll continue to operate that program at two locations: Hillside Junior and Borah High. What happens to Jackson Elementary? Hollar: We’re basically mothballing it. The
old Franklin and Cole elementary schools are still for sale, but as everyone knows, property values have gone down. We have not had anyone come forward to offer us a fair value for them yet. When those properties are eventually sold, the funds will go toward our facilities budget. Are you aware of any extra general funds that might come to the district from the state’s ﬁscal year-end surplus? Landon: We should know that ﬁgure any day now. But we don’t want to use those funds for the 2011-2012 school year. We have already balanced our budget for that year. Can you bank the funds? Landon: Absolutely. Those funds will deﬁnitely come into play when we talk about the levy that we’re going to put before voters. When does the board of trustees make a ﬁnal decision on a levy? Hollar: They will need to set an amount at their Monday, July 11 meeting. So those extra funds from the state will be a major factor in determining the amount of the supplemental levy. Do you already know for a fact that there will be a levy election on Tuesday, Aug. 30? Hollar: Yes. The board made that 10 decision in April.

CITIZENS CON’T Do you know the amount of the levy yet? Hollar: We know the range. It will be between $15 million and $17 million. I don’t want to second-guess the board, because they will make the ﬁnal decision. When we look to the 2012-2013 school year, it’s very dire. 8
How do you know that already? Hollar: We’re looking at a deﬁcit of $17.5 million. Plus, we’re looking at projected funding, the values of the district’s properties and the impact of the new Luna proposals. What are some examples of that? Landon: This year, they reduced all schools’ salary appropriations by 1.67 percent. Next year, it kicks up to a 4.05 percent reduction, and the reduction continues to grow in the next ﬁve years. But aren’t there things you can do right now to safeguard against those reductions? Landon: In the new 2011-2012 budget, we’re using about $4 million in one-time dollars from the feds, and we already know that those funds aren’t going to be there in 2012-2013. The other thing is, we’re spending down much of our savings account. That’s about $8.5 million. Will you drain that account? Landon: We’re going to retain a 5.5 percent reserve. That’s very low for a district of our size. It’s not even the equivalent of one month of operating costs. How do you prepare for a levy vote? Hollar: It’s about getting the facts out. The numbers are overwhelming and quite complex, but it’s also about how well the district is performing. But isn’t it fair to say that this is not your typical levy vote this year? Do you think some politics came into play during a recent levy vote in the Meridian School District? Hollar: We want a vote to be an intelligent vote. We wouldn’t be asking for this without a complete understanding of what’s at stake. We’re talking about maintaining class sizes and retaining teachers so that we can hopefully avoid staff cuts. These are not scare tactics. These are the realities in which we live. Landon: You really need to look at how dependent school districts have become on supplemental levies. Since 2006, there has been something like 60 percent more supplemental levies across the state. What you’re seeing is a shift of support from the state Legislature to the voters. And the voters in most cases are saying yes. Almost 83 percent of supplemental levies do pass. How long has it been since you bought new textbooks? Hollar: It’s been two years. Landon: We put $50,000 in the next budget for new library books. That’s less than $2 per kid. We wiped out the library budget last
10 | JULY 6–12, 2011 | BOISEweekly
year, and they desperately need replacement books. Do you have a sense of how many lottery dollars are coming into the district? Landon: Let me tell you what’s going on with the lottery. Prior to the economic downturn, the district used to get about $1.6 million from the lottery each year. We would use that money for a much-needed boiler or new roof. Two years ago, the state decided to earmark the money as part of the general fund. We are now going into year three of not receiving those lottery funds. Other than salaries, what are your bigticket expenses? Landon: Health coverage is a major expense. Who is your carrier? Landon: Regence Blue Shield. Hollar: We require all of our employees to participate in a wellness program. If they don’t, they have to pay a higher deductible and higher co-pays. How do you project student enrollment? Hollar: Our enrollment has continued to increase over the last several years. Lately, we have seen a bump in our early grades, so that bump should continue through our system over the years. We have seen increases not only in our traditional students, but also a big increase in our ELL [English Language Learner] students. They provide such a rich opportunity for our district, but they also provide challenges to our district’s teaching staff. Is the cost per student any higher for ELL students? Landon: We look at the full population when we do our cost per student. We don’t break out the ELL kids, because they could easily be in a math class, for example, with all of the other kids. What is your overall cost per student in the district? Landon: For the last school year, it was $8,186, and I’m pretty sure it will be down to about $7,800 in the next year. A lot of people say Boise spends a lot more compared to the rest of the state, but Boise is about 45th in the state among all school districts. That puts us right in the middle. You must spend a lot of your time in front of spreadsheets with a calculator nearby, but how do these huge budgets translate to students? Landon: To be honest, I work a lot with the numbers. But are you a mom? Landon: I am. For me, what’s most important is the investment in quality education, and that means quality teachers, a quality curriculum and adequate class sizes. It’s really about everybody having an equal opportunity to be successful. WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M
The ﬁnal days of Margaret Limbert Lawrence, owner of the Hollywood Market GEORGE PRENTICE
argaret Lawrence’s passing was not going to go unnoticed. During the last moments of her life at St. Luke’s Boise Medical Center on June 22, a sudden cold front pushed through a stiﬂing curtain of heat that had draped across the Treasure Valley. Within a few hours, a wave of thunder shook the Boise Foothills and lightning ripped the sky. Many of Lawrence’s friends who had not received ofﬁcial word of her passing said they knew—or at least sensed—that Margaret was gone when the storm erupted. In fact, some acquaintances said they were unaware of the severity of Lawrence’s hospitalization, but suspected that she had few days remaining after the Hollywood Market on Eighth Street was unexpectedly closed just six weeks prior. What happened between May 9, when the iconic Boise North End market was shuttered, and June 22 remains unknown to many. Dozens of North Enders told BW that they were told Lawrence had become ill. Some guessed that she hurt herself in an accident, and most said that her age, 95, had ﬁnally taken its toll. But individuals who said they knew Lawrence best said up until May 9, she was still operating the market, seven days a week, much like she had for decades. Eccentric? Yes. Colorful? Absolutely. But incompetent?

While Margaret and Danny lived simply, her estate is considerable. Everyone BW spoke to said Margaret owned a minimum of nine and as many as 11 properties in addition to the Hollywood Market. Most of the properties were rental homes, including at least one duplex and one triplex in Boise. Additionally, Margaret was well-known for her thrift. “She probably saved 80 cents of every dollar she made,” said Jason Haroian, who said Margaret was probably his best friend. “I can tell you that back in the 1990s, Margaret negotiated a $1.3 million deal,” said Weber. “She sold 360 acres of prime farmland out in Kuna to an investor. She wanted cash and she got it.” Derr, who also knew Margaret for more than 50 years, and occasionally served as her lawyer, remembered his friend and client as a tough negotiator. “The last time I represented her, we had a big disagreement over some work I had done for her,” said Derr. “And of course, she questioned how much she was willing to pay for it.” Derr conﬁrmed that Margaret’s sole focus in life was to make certain that Danny was taken care of, but said he was uncertain of how Hansen became a petitioner for Margaret’s affairs. “I’m not even going to speculate on that,” said Derr. “Danny became a member of the LDS church, but Margaret was not a member of that church.” “In her will, Margaret had some things that said that if she became incapacitated, the bank would take control over her property,” said Hansen. “I was involved in some of those meetings. Wells Fargo [executor of Margaret’s will] wanted to have somebody there to protect her and help her physically and mentally.” Hansen’s court petition for guardianship included a March 17 letter from Boise neurosurgeon Roy Frizzell, who said he knew Margaret for six years, declaring her to be “mentally incapacitated, unable to effectively manage or apply her estate to necessary ends.” The letter and the attached petition, approved by Bieter, changed everything for Margaret and Danny.
“Margaret told me many years ago that if they ever made her leave the store, she WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
would die a short time later,” said Derr. “That prediction certainly came true.” Whether Margaret had all of her faculties at the time of the court order was the subject of some debate. “They said Margaret was having trouble making change,” said Haroian. “Well, for goodness sake, she always had trouble making change. You know what it was? She was so trusting. She would allow customers to have tabs and she told them they could pay her later.” “For years, people always had questions about the store,” said Derr. “I would get phone calls to check on her, but she hadn’t lost her mind. In fact, she was always reading every day, and she was very well-informed. If she wasn’t attending to a customer, she was reading.” Title 15, Chapter 5, Part 4 of Idaho Code addresses “protection of property of persons under disability and minors.” The law states that “a protective order may be made in relation to the estate and affairs of a person if the court determines that 1) the person is unable to manage (his) property and affairs effectively for reasons such as mental illness ... and 2) the person has property which will be wasted or dissipated unless proper management is provided.” Following the court’s approval of the petition in late April, a newly appointed guardian, Debbie Hansen (no relation to Reed) of Castle Rock Services, assigned a professional aide to oversee Margaret’s affairs while working in the store. The aide began distributing a letter to customers who walked into the North End market, classifying a guardian as “a parent” and Margaret as “a minor child.” The letter also threatened anyone interfering with the guardian’s duties could “be construed as elder abuse and turned into law enforcement.” BW tried to contact Debbie Hansen on multiple occasions but our calls went unreturned. “A short time later, I walked into the store to see what was going on,” said Weber.

BOISE STATE UNIVERSITY LIBRARY, ROBERT LIMBERT COLLECTION
INTERFERING WITH THE GUARDIAN OR TRUSTEE’S DUTIES IN PROTECTING MARGARET LAWRENCE MAY BE CONSTRUED AS ELDER ABUSE AND TURNED IN TO LAW ENFORCEMENT.” — LETTER HANDED TO HOLLYWOOD MARKET CUSTOMERS
Margaret Lawrence could shoot from the hip, literally and ﬁguratively. While many Idahoans know of Lawrence’s verbal shootouts with politicians, she took great pride in learning a “fast draw” from her father, Robert “Two Gun Bob” Limbert in the 1920s and ’30s. Two Gun made his living as a gunslinger—ﬂipping a silver dollar, shooting it in mid-air or splitting a bullet by shooting at a sharp axe blade. He even claimed to have once challenged Al Capone to a shootout (Limbert said Capone backed out). Through his 48 years, he was an outﬁtter, an ardent sportsman and took countless photographs and movies of the Owyhee Canyons. He helped prepare the Panama-Paciﬁc Exposition on Idaho in 1915 and was a writer of short stories and poems. In 1919, he toured across Idaho on his Excelsior motorcycle. Limbert worked diligently for the protection of the Craters of the Moon National Monument. He famously trekked across the unmapped lava ﬂows in 17 days, documenting the 54,400 acres before it became a national monument in 1924. In 1926, he formed the Sawtooth Tours Company with cheese magnate J.L. Kraft as a key investor. Limbert traveled throughout the Sawtooth Mountains searching for the perfect place to build a lodge, ﬁnally settling in 1927 on the shores of Redﬁsh Lake. His daughter Margaret recalled hauling rocks with her brothers to help build the ﬁreplace for the lodge. In 2010, Margaret’s friend Jason Haroian escorted her on a return trip to the lodge, along with her son Danny. “She was treated like royalty when we walked in,” said Haroian. “Everyone thought she was wonderful. It was a glorious time for Margaret and Danny.” Limbert ﬁnished building the lodge in 1932, a year before he died. One account said he suffered a brain hemorrhage, another said he died of a heart attack. Both said he was on his way to visit his dying mother.
“And they handed me the letter. I asked, ‘What is this?’ And they said, ‘This is Margaret’s choice.’ But that simply was not true.” Reed Hansen conceded that Margaret didn’t like having someone “shadowing her.” “She didn’t want anybody looking over her shoulder or telling her what she had to do,” said Hansen. “No, she didn’t like it at all.” Approximately one week later, in early May, Debbie Hansen asked Weber to help escort Margaret on a visit to the Willow Park assisted living facility on Milwaukee Street. “Yeah, they thought that if I went with them, Margaret would be more amenable about going into a nursing home, but she was having none of it,” said Weber. “They even tried to get her to sign some papers there, voluntarily admitting herself, but she refused. She was not happy.” Margaret knew something was up. She called a friend, Kathy Vawter, to drive her home from work a little early the evening of May 9. “When we walked into the door of her home, Margaret turned to Danny and said, ‘I don’t really know what is going to happen tomorrow,’” said Vawter. “She was worried.” Friends said the next day two men from the LDS church came to Margaret’s home and asked to spend the day with Danny. Shortly thereafter, friends said someone escorted Margaret not to the assisted living facility, but to Boise Behavior, an acute mental health hospital for “psychiatric intervention and stabilization.” A sign was put up on the door of the Hollywood Market: “Closed Due to Illness.” “I had stopped by the store to visit with her,” remembered Derr. “And John Weber came running across the street and said he had some bad news. Margaret had been taken away.” “They just shut her off from the whole world,” said Weber. “She just disappeared,” said Haroian. “Nobody knew where she went. We immediately started making calls.” Haroian, Weber and all of Margaret’s friends were told that Boise Behavior did not allow visitors except for a “restricted list.” In spite of their requests, friends were not able to see Margaret until approximately a week and a half later, when she was transferred to the Willow Park assisted living facility. By then, Debbie Hansen had Margaret’s personal items and some furniture moved over to the nursing home, as well as Danny. “Yes, Danny and Margaret were living together again, but this time at the home,” said Haroian. “But at last, we could see her, and talk to her again.” Visits to Margaret at Willow Park were closely monitored. While she could receive visitors, an aide would never be further than a few feet away. “The ﬁrst thing I noticed was that they weren’t letting her read the newspaper,” said Haroian. “Well, anyone who knows Margaret knows that the news was a lifeline for her. But get a load of this: They told me that because of some injections that they were administering, her eyesight was failing and she couldn’t read that well anymore. That was cruel.”

North Enders have turned the doorstep of the Hollywood Market into a makeshift memorial for Margaret Lawrence.
Weber said Margaret’s stay at Willow Park did not go well. “I would get calls in the middle of the night,” he said. “Once it was 2 in the morning, and Danny said, ‘Come and get my mom. She wants out.’ He even ended up calling the police, but of course, they couldn’t do anything.” Reed Hansen eventually began cutting back Margaret’s visits. “Here’s what the issue was,” Hansen said. “Anytime Margaret would talk to anybody, it was a different story. There were people who were trying to push her one way or another and some people were trying to take advantage of her ﬁnancially.” When asked if any of the visitors had a legal claim to Margaret’s estate, Hansen said no. “I can guarantee that they’re not in the will,” he said. On June 10 while visiting Margaret at Willow Park, Vawter said she was encouraged by the home’s administrator and Debbie Hansen to escort Margaret over to the home’s dementia ward. “I said, ‘Why would I do that?’ That was clearly not Margaret’s wish,” said Vawter. “In fact, Margaret would hold me close in a hug and whisper in my ear, ‘Please get me a lawyer. Get me some help.’” Vawter said she learned later that day, that Margaret had been transferred back to the Boise Behavior psychiatric facility for “observation,” where once again visits would be restricted.
admitted to St. Luke’s. “She really should have been back home,” said Derr. “Her own prediction was coming true.” Derr said it was equally disappointing that friends could not see her.“Which was a cruel thing, I think,” he said. When BW asked Derr to comment on how the law allowed the situation to progress the way it did, he said, “I could only surmise, and I hesitate to do that.” Margaret’s obituary listed natural causes as the ofﬁcial reason of her passing, but friends said they think that she was vulner— JOHN WEBER able to illness and viruses in her multiple transfers, to Boise Behavior to Willow Park back to Boise Behavior, and ﬁnally to St. Luke’s. Hansen said he would not comment, on the record, regarding Margaret’s cause of death, saying only there was “a multi-system failure.” Since his mother’s death on June 22, Danny has decided that he would like to remain living at Willow Park. On June 25, he attended the candlelight vigil outside the store, and on June 29, he walked alongside his mother’s casket at a funeral service at the Warm Springs LDS chapel before her burial at Morris Hill Cemetery. Sitting near the back of the chapel were Haroian, Vawter and Weber. They listened to the music and a couple of brief remembrances during the service. They had few words but plenty of tears. They said they knew what most people in the chapel didn’t know: Margaret’s ﬁnal days weren’t in keeping with her wishes.
IT WAS 2 IN THE MORNING AND DANNY SAID, ‘COME AND GET MY MOM. SHE WANTS OUT.’”
Haroian said he repeatedly tried to call Debbie Hansen to ask about Margaret’s status. “I asked her, ‘What is your goal here?’” said Haroian. “And she said, ‘To have Margaret and Danny live happily ever after.’” Margaret’s physical condition was deteriorating.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, the ﬁrst Harry Potter book, was published in 1997. The seventh and ﬁnal book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released in 2007. Release parties were held at bookstores nationwide and people lined up for hours ahead of time to get each book and rush home. Deathly Hallows sold 15 million copies overnight, shattering the previous sales record of 9 million, which had been set by the sixth Potter book, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Apparently, the books were so popular that emergency rooms tracked a decrease in admissions following their release, because kids were reading on the couch instead of galloping around recklessly. And then there are the ﬁlms—seven of them since 2001, with one more to come. All together, Harr y Potter fans have invested 14 years of their lives in a stor y that spans 4,175 pages, has more than 200 characters, and includes a series of movies that runs 19 hours and 38 minutes. The stor y is so complex and detailed that editors employed an internal fact-checker to ensure that details like the bend of the toilet pipe that the ghost Moaning Myrtle lived in didn’t change from an “L” to an “S” from book to book. Scholars have written no shortage of academic papers analyzing Harr y Potter’s social messages, religious analogues and even its effect on youth literacy. The chances that there will be another story of this magnitude in this generation are slim to none. And the ﬁnal piece of it will fall into place on Friday, July 15, with the release of the eighth ﬁlm, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. That means Harry Potter fans better do all they can to maximize the experience, ’cause there won’t be another moment like this. Luckily, the good folks at the Edwards 9 Cinema see it the same way, and are screening all seven of the previous ﬁlms in the days leading up to the release of the new ﬁlm. Harry Potter fans can view the ﬁlms as one complete set, seeing the characters and story grow right before their eyes. The ﬁlms will show in order from Monday, July 11, through Thursday, July 14. Tickets are $5 per movie or $30 for a full festival pass and are available at the Edwards 9 box ofﬁce. Monday, July 11-Thursday, July 14, various times, $5 each, $30 for series.

helped broaden people’s awareness of what may have been considered subcultures.” Lori Wright, co-founder of Newt and Harold’s, has been around board culture for 15 years. She said she isn’t sure why the link between skateboarding and art exists, but she’s glad it does. “[I’m] happy to see that some of the skaters have grown up and started giving back to the community. There’s a somewhat new attitude toward skating—it’s viable, it’s what kids do,” Wright said. Knopp said that the Art Deck-O show should contain “a lot of crazy stuff.” While he wants the details of his own piece to remain a mystery, he did reveal that it has “something to do with a musical instrument.” Creamer’s piece also promises to be something completely original. “It has to do with sports equipment, toys and robots—just because I like robots,” Creamer said with a half-smile. These works of art may be on skateboard decks, but they aren’t necessarily meant to be skated on. For Green, seeing her work rolling down the sidewalk might be a bit tough. “I really truly hope no one skates on the board,” Green said. “I would hate to see it scratched and wrecked. It belongs on a wall.” That won’t be problem for local skater Mike Shier, who has been skating for more than a decade. “I wouldn’t want to skate on something that’s considered art,” Shier said. “I’d want to hang something like that on a wall, like what they do at some tattoo shops. It’s kind of a cool idea—a lot can be done with skate decks and art is so universal.” That universal connection is part of what Knopp hopes to achieve by using the decks as a medium and giving the contributing artists creative freedom. “As time goes, people are more receptive to different things,” Knopp said. “There’s a skateboard culture anyway, and having a new canvas changes it up. It’s not pretentious and there aren’t rules. Anything goes.”

The Boise City Department of Arts and History is offering free tours of its eight new bus transit shelters, which line Main Street and promise to enhance “the experience of pedestrians and downtown bus riders … by providing colorful, unusual artwork to mark the transit shelters, and to provide shade for anyone using them.” Tour-goers will meet on the front steps of City Hall at 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 7, for the ﬁrst tour, and again at 5 p.m. for the second. Stops include Will Spearman and Melissa “Sasi” Chambers at Eighth and Idaho streets and Capitol Boulevard and Main streets; Shantara Sandberg at Ninth and Main streets; Ben Gin at Eighth and Main streets; Chad Erpelding at Idaho Street and Capitol Boulevard; April VanDeGrift at For more info on Secrets and Ninth and Main streets and Lies, visit indiegogo.com/ Eighth and Idaho streets; and secretsandlies Jennifer Manning-Gilbreath at Eighth and Main streets.

Another way to get your outside on this First Thursday is to follow BW Media Czar Josh Gross’ paper trail. Gross is publicizing his new collection of short stories, Secrets and Lies, with a scavenger hunt, featuring the story “The Curse of the Failed Novel.” “We’re posting [pages] in several places around town, so you can pick up a map and follow it to go read the story,” said Gross. “So it’s like one page here, one page there … At the end you’ve read the whole story.” “The Curse of the Failed Novel” has previously been published in Caveat-Lector and Pathos Lit Magazine and tells the tale of a man who loses friends and lovers each time he gifts them his book. You can pick up Gross’ scavenger hunt map at the Flying M Coffeehouse. —Tara Morgan

BLACK TOOTH GRIN, JULY 8, KFCH Local band Black Tooth Grin has something to smile about and a reason to celebrate: its new album Psycle. Psycle is the culmination of BTG’s nearly nine years of existence. It’s only the band’s third full-length and sounds like something that has been nurtured until its creators felt it was good and ready. BTG’s classic swampy Southern rock/ metal sound reverberates through every track, but Psycle is a concept album dealing with ”birth, life, struggles and death— things all humans go through,” according to BTG frontman Justin Arthur. All four band members contributed to the songwriting, giving the tracks a connective tissue. From heartbeat-thumping bass lines, drum beats like heavy footsteps, Arthur’s punishing but peaceful vocals and guitarist Jeremy Schmidt’s mastery of knowing when to slay a riff and when to pull back, Psycle is a good reason for BTG to throw a party. —Amy Atkins With Elite, Workin’ On Fire and Xex, 8 p.m., $6.

WARNER DRIVE, JULY 9, KFCH Los Angelesbased band Warner Drive looks like a punk band, but isn’t. NOFX is vocalist and WD founder Jonathan “Jonny Law” Lawrence Jonah’s “favorite band of all time.” And WD’s new release, K-GO!, got its name from a NOFX song. “But we aren’t punk ... we’re a rock band with a punk edge,” Jonah said. K-GO! is a tonguein-cheek concept album about a pirate radio station in which the DJs play whatever the hell they want. Jonah said his band is DIY, refusing to relinquish control to a label, regardless of how lucrative the offer. And WD grew a Boise fanbase by being regulars at 1332’s Punk Mondays at Liquid (something, Jonah said, that angered punk purists). “We write for the masses ... We want as many people as possible listening to our music,” Jonah said. And plenty are. WD packed Hollywood’s Roxy Theater recently and WD fans are wildly loyal: a large number of them sport tattoos of the band’s logo and members’ autographs. —Amy Atkins

HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN
BOY MEETS WORLD: SEASON SIX
The title says it all. Rutger Hauer is known only as “the hobo” in Hope Town—a corrupt city controlled by the criminals. Instead of getting back on his feet by begging for money and minding his own business, the hobo purchases a shotgun and becomes a vigilante bent on bringing justice to the city. The movie was originally a fake ﬁlm trailer: It was produced for an international contest to promote the release of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s double feature Grindhouse. After winning ﬁrst prize, Hobo with a Shotgun, directed by Jason Eisener, was expanded into a feature ﬁlm that was released in Canada and the United States.
ABC created a classic in the ’90s when it introduced adolescents Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), Shawn Hunter (Rider Strong), Topanga Lawrence (Danielle Fishel) and teacher/principal/professor Mr. Feeny (William David Daniels). The seven-season show was a guidebook to surviving middle school, high school and beyond. The sixth season is the introduction to college life. Cory and Topanga are engaged, Shawn has ups and downs in his own love life, and Mr. Feeny is there to lend advice when needed. You can watch late-night reruns of the show, but this collection allows immediate access to freshman-year melodrama. —Elizabeth Duffy

NEWS/FOOD FOOD/YEAR OF IDAHO FOOD
FLYING M SOLD TO NEW OWNER During the Flying M’s typical morning rush, a sleepy line snakes around coffee beans and knickknacks and out the downtown coffee shop’s door. But on July 1, one thing was different—former owner Lisa Myers was one of the patient masses waiting in line for a latte. “It’s funny; Teresa was hesitating even ringing me up,” said Myers, from the customer side of the counter. Myers, who opened the Flying M Coffeehouse with husband Kevin in 1992, ofﬁcially sold the Boise coffee hotspot to longtime employee Kent Collins on June 30. The Myers felt it was time to focus their energy on the Flying M location in Nampa. “The kids are starting to go off to college; our second one leaves this fall,” said Myers. “It just felt like the timing was right, we could pull back a little bit, concentrate on Nampa.” But longtime Flying M devotees can rest easy: The transition should go largely unnoticed. “We’ll keep the consistency; nothing should change really because [Collins is] still buying Flying M beans, which we roast in Nampa, and then we’ll be doing our advertising together and our logo stuff together,” said Myers. According to Collins, owning the M has been a longtime dream. “In October I will have been here 12 years,” said Collins. “At about year 10, [Myers] made a little joke about selling the place one day, and I called ‘dibs.’” But Collins plans to maintain the Flying M’s long-running traditions—rotating monthly art shows will still be organized by Jerms Laningham and John Warfel, and the M will continue to host Valentines for AIDS. “I think this place is amazing, and I want to keep it that way. Maybe a couple of new chairs and tables would be nice, but other than that, everything else will stay just the same,” said Collins. “I would never buy this place and then change it.” Surveying his new domain, Collins ﬂashed a smile ﬁlled with nervous excitement and almost palpable pride before returning to man the espresso machine. “I’m not sure if it’s really sunk in yet,” Collins said. “I signed all the bank papers and everything, but so far, it just seems like a regular shift.” —Tara Morgan

CON’T/FOOD DISH/FOOD Restaurants get one chance to hit BW with their best shot. LEILA R AM ELLA- R ADER
John Berryhill’s lasagna brings home the Bacon.
BACON Berryhill & Co.’s new cafe-style venture is all about the B’s. Bacon is the name of the eatery and its tagline is “breakfast, bistro and bloody marys.” Because I visited at noon on a weekday, opinions on both breakfast and bloody marys will have to wait, but Bacon deﬁnitely has the bistro part down. Floor-to-ceiling windows bounce sunbeams off the ochrecolored walls and earth-tone stained concrete ﬂoor. The droolinducing glass case features giant mufﬁns that glitter with sugared tops, pastries du jour like strawberry “Pop Tarts” and specialty cakes. And bacon. Plates brimming with locally sourced bacon beckon; Berryhill’s signature strips are ﬂavored with both chile and sugar. Other varieties include the Kurobuta with thyme, sage, rosemary and lavender; apple-smoked turkey; spicy hot; tempeh; pancetta, candied and chocolate-covered. Owner John Berryhill said that he has been working on the different ﬂavors for years and plans to add even more varieties as time goes on. Berryhill added that the concept of Bacon came about because the pork product was always an extremely popular menu item. BACON “I know there’s a trend in 915 W. Idaho St. 208-387-3553 bacon right now, but Bacon has johnberryhillrestaurants.com nothing to do with that,” Berryhill said. “I’ve been cooking bacon since 1995.” Menu items—sandwiches, egg dishes and salads—are served a la carte and bacon is sold by the strip. The bacon lasagna ($7.95) was served solo and didn’t need a salad assist. Tender, not-too-thick pasta was an unobtrusive foundation for fresh, well-seasoned ingredients. Lasagna can easily be overpowered by too much ricotta, but it’s a requisite for the dish. A conservative amount of the curd cheese kept Bacon’s dish classic and added both traditional taste and texture. Salty chunks of ham and bacon and a generous helping of earthy mushrooms dotted every forkful and a piquant oily marinara atop jack, cheddar and parmesan added a toothsome acidity while a chevre bechamel sauce gave it creaminess. Add in we-treat-everyone-like-family service, and if the word charming started with a B, it would belong in Bacon’s tagline. Boxing half of the dish was a necessity to avoid a desktop nap. However, the leftovers didn’t sit long enough to even get cold. The siren call of bacon and bechamel proved too great, and soon the little waxed brown box was empty except for a smear of bright red sauce. Berryhill may be all about the B’s, but the bistro’s bacon lasagna gets an A. —Amy Atkins WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
the hooks and it hooks under their lip and then they get caught and that’s how you catch a ﬁsh.” “Clever,” said her brother Andrew as he leaned in on tiptoes to get a closer look at the bright orange ﬂy a volunteer was tying. Papenberg thinks children like those three are the future of ﬁshing. At that age, he said, the impulse to ﬁsh is nearly innate. “You’ll see it in a little kid who’s never done it before,” Papenberg said. “They toss out a bobber and the trout bites and the bobber goes under the water and the excitement is just there. You don’t have to teach it.” After Papenberg and I sat down to fried catﬁsh and hushpuppies, I asked him why—apart from the revenues IDFG gets from selling ﬁshing licenses—he thought it so important to devote so much agency energy to keep people dangling hooks into water. Giving his beard a thoughtful stroke, it didn’t take Papenberg long to cast his reply well beyond the recreational reasons IDFG might cite. Like Herman Melville, Henry David Thoreau, Ernest Hemingway, Norman Maclean, David James Duncan and so many articulate ﬁshermen before, Papenberg reeled in his answer from a much deeper metaphysical ﬁshing hole. “You know, I don’t want to take it further than some people might be comfortable,” he said, “but it’s almost spiritual. We’re ﬁlling our lives with virtual experiences, but these [ﬁshing experiences] are real experiences, they’re tangible, they’re right in front of you. They focus you intensely in the here and now, and for that reason alone I love it.” He paused as he looked around the room and then added, “I think a lot of people can get something out of that.” 30

Find out what the beekeeping buzz is all about.
FOOD-RELATED WORKSHOPS Following in the footsteps of medieval alchemists, Sockeye master brewer Josh King will show folks how to Turn Water into Gold on Saturday, July 9. After learning about styles of beer, participants will sample Sockeye’s brews. The class starts at 1 p.m., which should give you plenty of time to sleep off Friday night’s experiment turning beer into a hangover. The class meets at Sockeye, 3019 N. Cole Road, and costs $20 for Idaho Botanical Garden members and $25 for non-members. For more info or to register, call 208-658-1533. While bacteria can help create good things, like beer, under the wrong conditions, it can also lead to bad things, like botulism. That’s why Idaho Botanical Garden is hosting Home Canning Done Safely, on Monday, July 11, at 7 p.m. Food safety advisers from the University of Idaho will help attendees understand proper canning techniques. The course costs $10 for IBG members and $15 for non-members, and students will meet in the Idaho Botanical Garden Cottage. For more information, call 208-343-8649.

SUMMER REDS Summer is barbecue season, and beer is the fortiﬁed beverage of choice. But what’s a person to do if he or she prefers a glass of wine? It’s something of a dilemma—beyond ﬁsh, the food that comes off the grill typically goes best with a glass of red. Unfortunately, the summer heat makes most red wines unappealing—but there are exceptions. Look for lighter, fruit-driven wines, ones that can be served slightly chilled. The three that topped the latest tasting are classic examples of good summer reds. 2009 DUPEUBLE BEAUJOLAIS, $14.99 In Beaujolais, located in the south of France’s Burgundy region, the gamay noir grape rules, producing a fruit-driven wine that’s both light and lovely. This wine opens with bright red fruit aromas backed by subtle rose petal, smoke and earth. Ripe cherry fruit ﬂavors are matched by soft, food-friendly acidity, making this wine a great choice for your backyard barbecue. 2007 STARRY NIGHT ZINFANDEL, SONOMA, $17.99 What could be a better match for the all-American barbecue than this all-American grape? Unfortunately, the modern trend for zin has been toward big, jammy, high-alcohol wines better suited for sipping in front of a winter ﬁreplace. Happily, this wine has all the smooth blueberry and dark cherry fruit that makes zin so appealing, but with the light touch and balance that is too often missing. Open a bottle of this and light up the grill. 2009 VALDELANA TEMPRANILLO, $8.99 This tempranillo from the Rioja region of Spain is blended with 5 percent viura, a white wine grape. Classiﬁed as a joven or young wine, it’s a style that emphasizes fresh fruit ﬂavors. The Valdelana offers lots of sweet and spicy fruit on the nose with a touch of vanilla. Soft and round in the mouth, the palate is all supple cherry fruit. This is a deﬁnite bargain. —David Kirkpatrick

BW KICKS MEMORY BANDIT Someone broke into my apartment as I was moving and took all of my jewelry. I am not a wealthy person and the items I had were valuable because of who gave them to me. My class ring that was a graduation gift, the ruby I got instead of a car for my 16th birthday, my mothers ring that represents the love of my 4 children. I cannot replace these items, even if I had the money. I hope you sleep
well at night knowing what you’ve done. And why did you take the mannequin? Really, now I can’t supplement my income from my job. Something you don’t seem to understand...you want something, you work for it. You haven’t stopped me, but you have caused me to pause. I’m glad I’m not you.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): It’s my observation that women find it easier than men to tune into their natural rhythms. The menstrual cycle helps cultivate that ability. We men experience less dramatic physical shifts, and that seems to give us license to override messages from our bodies for the sake of ambition, laziness or convenience. Having acknowledged that, I must say that I know men who are highly sensitive and responsive to somatic cues and women who aren’t. Whatever gender you are, I believe that in the coming weeks, it’s crucial for you to be acutely aware of what’s going on inside your beloved flesh-and-blood vehicle. This is one time when you need to be intimately aligned with its needs.
38 | JULY 6–12, 2011 | BOISEweekly
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Are you feeling the sting of disappointment, railing at life for reneging on one of its promises to you? Are you in the throes of unleashing a great accusation, suffering the twisty ache that comes from having your pet theories disproved? Maybe you should consider the possibility that you are simply getting an opportunity to correct a misunderstanding— that life isn’t being mean to you and you’re not being punished. I’d like to propose that you are, in fact, in the first phase of your healing. Listen to Bengali writer Rabindranath Tagore: “We read the world wrong and say that it deceives us.”
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): One of the greatest kings of the ancient Persian Sassanid Empire was Shapur II (309-379). Shortly after his father died, he was made king while still in his mother’s womb. Since he could not yet wear his crown, officials set it upon his mother’s pregnant belly. He ruled from then until the day he died, 70 years later. I’m naming him your patron saint for the second half of 2011, Taurus. My sense is that the seed of some great accomplishment is already germinating within you. It may take a while to be fully born, but I suggest we consecrate its bright future now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “The more one dwells on oneself,” says psychoanalyst Adam Phillips in his book Going Sane: Maps of Happiness, “the more one is likely to suffer.” He thinks people need encouragement to avoid excessive introspection. “My project as a psychoanalyst,” he writes, “is to free them to not have to think about their lives so much.” While I feel he overstates the case, I do suspect his message would be good for you to heed in the coming weeks. For maximum success and robust mental health, take a generous portion of your attention off yourself and focus it on living your life with compassion, curiosity and concern for others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I’ve got no problem with the real world. I spend a lot of time there, enjoy its chewy riddles and take it quite seriously. But I also consider myself a militant lobbyist for all the Other Worlds—the domain of everything that’s invisible to the naked eye and irrelevant to the schemes of the rational ego. These alternate realities consist of the unconscious, the spiritual sphere, the intelligence of nature and the realm of the ancestors. In my astrological opinion, you’re due for a major upgrade in your relationship with these dimensions in the next 12 months. Now would be a good time to get started.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “One must choose in life between boredom and suffering,” proclaimed author Madame de Stael (1766-1817). I beg to differ with her, however. As evidence, I present the course of your life during the next few weeks. After analyzing the astrological omens, I expect you will steer a middle course between boredom and suffering, being able to enjoy some interesting departures from the routine that don’t hurt a bit. There may even be pain-free excursions into high adventure, along with a fascinating riddle that taxes your imagination in rather pleasurable ways.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): While listening to the sound-collage radio program Over the Edge, I learned that a new primary color has been detected. Different from red, yellow or blue, it has its own distinct hue that’s impossible to describe. You really have to see it to appreciate its essence. The discoverer of this marvel is Dr. Wohan Squant, who has named the color “squant.” (bit.ly/ squant.) I wish I could predict that you’re about to create something equally revolutionary, Cancerian, but I can’t. Nevertheless, you’ve entered a phase when you have the power to tinker with and even transform fundamental laws of your universe.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I accompanied a friend and his family to a small fairground where a local school was having a fundraiser. There were rides and games for younger kids. Right away we came to a challenging activity that involved climbing a ladder made out of rubber and coated with some slippery substance. One girl, about 7 years old, was having a moment of rowdy bliss as she tried to ascend. “It’s impossible—but fun!” she cried out to her mom. Your assignment in the coming week is to find an adventure like that: one that’s impossible but fun.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “It is not always needful for truth to take a definite shape,” wrote Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. “It is enough if it hovers about us like a spirit and produces harmony; if it is wafted through the air like the sound of a bell, grave and kindly.” With this quote, I’m alerting you to the fact that a new truth is now floating into your world, Sagittarius. It’ll be misty and sparkly, yet somehow also decisive and lucid. It will comfort you and yours, but also be a bit shocking. It will be sharply tonic, like strong medicine that has a pungent yet oddly delicious flavor you’ve never tasted before. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If there were a useful website with the domain name amiagoodpersonornot.com, I would advise you to go check it out. The same is true if there were websites like amiauthenticornot.com, amiyummyornot.com, amienlightenedornot.com, or amiagorgeousgeniusornot.com. What I’m trying to tell you, Capricorn, is that this would be an excellent time for you to find out more about yourself from objective sources—or any other kind of sources, for that matter. Solicit feedback, my beautiful darling. Ask for updates on how you’re doing. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Ninety-six percent of all adults say they would change something about their appearance if they could. That statistic is one factor that leads philosopher Jonathan Zap to make this observation: “Suffering associated with body image has reached such epidemic proportions in our culture that it must be counted as one of the greatest spiritual plagues ever to be visited upon mankind.” That’s the bad news, Aquarius. The good news is that the coming months will be an excellent time for learning to be more at peace with how you look. I invite you to formulate a three-point plan that will help you come to a perspective in which you will love your body exactly the way it is. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): On her website reuniting.info, Marnia Robinson reported on a discovery that may be useful to you. Wandering around a county fair, she went to a reptile exhibit, where she encountered an animal trainer who had an alligator resting serenely on his lap. She asked him why the creature was so well-behaved. “I pet it daily,” he said. “If I didn’t, it would quickly be wild again, and wouldn’t allow this.” Apply that lesson in your own life, Pisces. Bestow regular tenderness and loving touch to the feral, untamed, primitive influences in your life—including any that may reside within you.
