NOTE KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE, AND YOUR TEXTS CLOSER This week’s feature is an emotionally difﬁcult one to read, but it’s an important piece. The story of Joseph Wiederrick, a freshman at University of Idaho who died after spending a frigid night beneath a bridge in January, serves as much more than the usual cautionary tale about youth and its perceived invincibility. Wiederrick’s death wasn’t a freak occurrence. He didn’t get killed in a car wreck, or fall out of a window or die in a brawl. His death relied on a breakdown of something so simple we increasingly take it for granted: communication. It is still possible, even in our hyper-connected world, for a person to simply fall through the cracks. A missed phone call, an ignored text message, an unanswered knock at the door can mean the difference between life and death, and Wiederrick’s life could have been saved by any number of the people he encountered along his tragic, mysterious latenight wander through the wilds of Moscow. Yet the lines of communication he tried to open failed. The piece in this week’s paper, written by Jacob Jones of the Paciﬁc Northwest Inlander, in Spokane, Wash., is a ﬁnely wrought examination of just how Wiederrick was allowed simply to walk out into the darkness and never return. It’s also a powerful reminder that our “social safety net” starts at the most basic level: people looking out for each other. Elsewhere in this week’s Boise Weekly, George Prentice braves the wilds of rural western Idaho/eastern Oregon, where some county sheriffs are telling their constituents they won’t comply with federal efforts to regulate ﬁrearms. He also gets a little legal insight on whether the sheriffs can actually back up their rhetoric: Turns out they’re shooting from the hip—mostly. Finally, you might have noticed (if you read the Idaho Statesman Feb. 24), that the paper has come to its senses and brought back Doonesbury. Boise Weekly never lost its senses—we picked it up when the daily dropped it—so we’re keeping the comic anyway. Trudeau fans rejoice. —Zach Hagadone

Cope baby takes corporate media up on offer To: email@example.com Subject : Are you in? Mr. Cope, we here at the G.A.G. Media Group are currently engaged in the development of new reality-based programming, a table to which we have been late in coming. I’m afraid my predecessor misjudged the market for “infonewstertainment”—as we insiders call it—and he overextended our programming down other avenues of televisable content, such as an emphasis on peppy doctor shows (e.g., Doctor Don’s Poop Hour), second-tier talent spectacles (e.g., So You Think You Can Scrapbook), and vintage collections from the Golden Age of broadcasting (The Munsters, weekend marathons of Mr. Ed, etc.). However, owing to a dismal market share for the past 37 quarters, my predecessor has been reassigned to the Scenic Calendar Division and I have been tasked to build an entirely new vision for our Television Division. After witnessing the popularity of series centered on the lives of people previously considered too vacuous, too unstable or too icky for even 15 minutes of fame, I am determined to take G.A.G. further into this genre than any broadcast organization has gone before. This brings me to you, Mr. Cope. I see from our records that you have been approached on several occasions in regards to other G.A.G. projects. Your assignment, should you choose to take it, is to conceptualize a cast of people who, by virtue of their unusual personalities, unusual occupations or unusual lifestyles, are camera-worthy. They could be a family, involved in some speciﬁc occupation choice, or drawn together by a common interest—we don’t care. Not as long as they have that magical quality which brings an audience back, week after week, to see what they are up to. We would prefer that whatever reality-based concept you come up with be set in Idaho as we are committed to the idea that Idaho can compete with places like New Jersey, Louisiana and Florida when it comes to repulsive people we can watch endlessly, even if it makes us feel queasy and disgusted with ourselves to do it. I should also mention that when I say “reality-based television,” you are free to interpret that to whatever degree you feel is compatible with “ratings-based television.” Thank you for considering this proposal, Matt Schlurrie, Dir. of Programming, G.A.G. Media Group

Re: Are you in? You bet your bippy I’m in, Matt baby! I’ve been conceptualizing about just this sort of crap for a long time. At least since season one of Hoarders. But then Honey Boo Boo showed up, and I thought, “Bill baby, you absolutely have to get a piece of this!” So I put a prospectus together that’ll knock your jockeys off. Get comfortable, dude, and let your mind ﬂoat ... Picture the Flart family, immigrants to Boise (better yet ... Eagle) from Mississippi. Maybe Alabama. You know what I mean. From someplace where just to hear them talk is gut-busting hilarious, no matter what they say. (Suggestion: Whatever family we pick to cast in this, they should change their name legally to “Flart.” They’ll be glad they did when that money starts rolling in.) Heading the clan is Bart Flart. He’s tried alligator wrangling, catﬁsh grabbing, working in a pawn shop, tracking Sasquatch, bidding on the contents of abandoned storage sheds, catching rattlesnakes in gunny sacks and pimping out Harleys. But somehow, those career choices did not satisfy his soul. (Suggestion: We ﬁll out Bart’s character with ﬂashbacks to his earlier days and have him reminisce about not being able to put his whole heart into bellowing “Wahoo!” like the other guys. It could be sadly touching, don’t you think, Matt baby?) So Bart has moved his family to a tent on the hill above the Ada County dump, where they ﬁght over, laugh over, cry over and do their family love thing over crud that you and I throw away. Get it? The Flarts are trash pickers. Ergo, the name of the series: The Lords of the Landﬁll. Tell me that isn’t catchy. There’s his wife, Alma, and the seven little Flarts: Jenny June, Burp, Elvis, the twins Flopsy and Mopsy, that pudgy little ﬁrecracker Elvisina, and of course, the baby… Pisser. Jenny June is the oldest at 14, so Bart and Alma don’t mind so much that she brought her boyfriend Curly along to (as J.J. puts it) “keep me all worm and coozy at night”—which, when said with that mushy Southern drawl, will be just a hoot. (Suggestion: I can see a running gag where family members stumble across J.J. and Curly, hiding out behind discarded kitchen appliances and under torn-up sofas, in one state of carnal entanglement or another. Is that funny, or what?) For dramatic tension, we can introduce other families to compete with the Flarts over the junk of Hidden Hollow. Like, I see one bunch imported from the refuse dumps of Mumbai and another from the mountains of garbage around Rio in Brazil. Just thinking about the inevitable language bloopers breaks me up, how about you? Let me know when we can get started, Matt baby. We need to get going on this before those guys from the Arts and Entertainment channel get wind of it and steal the idea. Chow—Bill baby WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M

Why can’t the United States move forward? “Your dearest wish is for our state structure and ideological system never to change, to remain as they are for centuries. But history is not like that. Every system either ﬁnds a way to develop or else collapses.” Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn wrote that in 1974, in his famous “Letter to the Soviet Leaders.” It could just as easily be addressed to President Barack Obama, Congress, the media, corporate chiefs and others who maintain the power structure in the United States. The United States is as ossiﬁed as the USSR was before its collapse. Shortly after the start of the ﬁnancial meltdown, polls found Americans disgusted with the capitalist system. Tens of millions said they would prefer socialism. When the Occupy Wall Street movement took off, mainstream pundits began using the “R” word, revolution—but only to ask a question with a predetermined answer. Regime change, they said, was neither desirable nor possible. Too bad. We used to be a growing country. Not any more. It’s been 53 years since we added a star to Old Glory. We used to amend the Constitution to suit changing mores. The last major amendment, granting the vote to 18-year-olds, was ratiﬁed in 1971. Apparently equal rights for women is too much to ask. We don’t build anymore. Think about infrastructure. The last major public works project in U.S. history was the Interstate Highway System, built in the 1950s—not coincidentally when the economy was booming. Our political system is ossiﬁed too. The massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut prompted calls for tighter gun control. But nobody—not even liberals, the

traditional enemies of gun rights—argued for getting rid of the Second Amendment which, depending on your interpretation of the prefatory comma, allows us to join a militia or carry guns in our waistbands. “I have no intention of taking away folks’ guns,” Obama said. Why not? Personally, I’m against gun control and I’m glad that little is going to change. Yet I ﬁnd it disturbing that the Second Amendment is considered sacrosanct. Pointing out that the country is very different now than it was in 1789 seems reasonable. A smart country, one willing to weigh the alternatives when trying to solve a problem, should be able to discuss the possibility of repealing the Second Amendment. Look at our national political dialogue, which ranges from center-right to right. Whole strains of ideology are off the table. We pretend most of the ideological spectrum doesn’t exist. Not smart. Our national unwillingness and/or inability to have a wide-ranging debate reminds me of New York City, where I live. There are no public restrooms. Restaurants and businesses post “Restrooms for Customers Only” signs on their doors. Yet peeing outside is against the law; in fact, it’s public exposure, a sex offense that can land you on a pervert registry. A child could tell you this is insane. We New Yorkers don’t even talk about it. Like Germans on their way to work in the early 1940s, wondering what that funny smell coming from the camp down the road might be coming from, we pretend that this is all perfectly normal. 10 As a recent New York Times article

SCR-112 claims Idaho is ‘targeted for a 2014 medical marijuana initiative.’
SENATE PUSHES ANTI-POT MEASURE
(Left to right) Malheur County, Ore. Sheriff Brian Wolfe, Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman, Washington County Sheriff Matt Thomas and Payette County Sheriff Chad Huff.
GUNNING FOR A FIGHT “We, as sheriffs, have to decide upon ourselves if laws are unconstitutional.” GEORGE PRENTICE Including plenty of diatribes against the U.S. government, prayer to remember those who have given their lives to defend the Constitution, and a liberal dose of conservative politics, three west Idaho lawmen—and a counterpart from eastern Oregon to round out the armed quartet—told a Payette town hall meeting Feb. 20 that they would try to “keep the peace” at the standing-roomonly event. But before the evening was over, the sheriffs representing Adams, Malheur, Payette and Washington counties had riled up the crowd by declaring they would deny federal access to gun registrations, decide for themselves which laws were constitutional or unconstitutional, and even talked about creating an armed “posse”—a formal list of citizens that lawmen could turn to when things took a turn for the worse. “Yes, I’ve had a posse proposal sitting on my desk for a while,” said Payette County Sheriff Chad Huff. “I was waiting for this meeting to see what the pulse was.” Pulses and tempers ran high for two solid hours as Huff, Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman, Washington County Sheriff Matt Thomas and Malheur County, Ore., Sheriff Brian Wolfe each took the stage at the packedto-the-gills Payette High School Auditorium. “Have you seen this bill from Feen-steen (sic),” said Huff, butchering the last name of California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein (pronounced FINE-stine), the lawmaker who wants to prohibit certain semi-automatic weapons and ammunition magazines that carry more than 10 rounds. “That’s absolutely crazy,” he said. In spite of repeated attempts by audience members to correct Huff’s mispronunciation, he continued to call the senator WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
“Feensteen” on four more occasions. In fact, Huff struggled with a few more words through the evening, ﬁnding it impossible to pronounce “prohibition” and “parochial,” without some help. But Huff laughed off his difﬁculties with the language, instead zeroing in on President Barack Obama’s “Now Is the Time” executive orders, issued Jan. 16: a 23-point plan to curb gun violence, including one recommendation that would allow doctors to talk to their patients about guns in their homes. “I think that’s absolutely ridiculous,” said Huff. Another of Obama’s executive orders that would make “relevant data available to the federal background check system,” took another verbal beating from each of the sheriffs. “My name would be on that list that they would want because I have a lot of guns and I’m not giving them up,” said Zollman, the newly elected sheriff of mostly rural Adams County. “I can tell you all here tonight that I will not allow any information to be shared regarding weapons possessed or held by my ofﬁce.” Washington County Sheriff Thomas echoed Zollman’s pushback. “I would tell [federal agents] quite simply that that’s not happening today, and it would be best if they left our county,” he said to cheers from the 500-plus crowd. Malheur County Sheriff Wolfe took the federal pushback one step further, saying he had gone as far as tossing federal agents out of his jurisdiction. “Yes, there have been times when we asked federal authorities to leave our county,” he said. “They performed an illegal entry once, and I told them to get out. Since
then, we’ve worked things out.” Wolfe told the gathering that as he was preparing his remarks for the Feb. 20 town hall, his daughter approached him to remind him that her current seventh-grade U.S. history studies might make her better prepared to offer constitutional insight. “She said, ‘If you’re talking about the U.S. Constitution, I should be the one going. Not you. I know more than you do,’” said Wolfe. “Perhaps she’s right.” Indeed, her father and his fellow lawmen continually invoked the Constitution, though their references to it changed throughout the evening. At the beginning of the town hall presentation, the sheriffs used the phrase “as our Constitutional rights guarantee,” but by the end, that line had morphed into “as our God-given rights guarantee.” Huff tossed some more verbal red meat to the crowd when he said that he knew better than the president, governor or most other lawmakers when it came to interpreting the Constitution. “We, as sheriffs, have to decide upon ourselves if laws are unconstitutional,” he said. While Huff’s remarks may have been strong rhetoric, David Leroy—former Idaho attorney general, former lieutenant governor and current Boise attorney—told Boise Weekly that the comments may have missed the mark on how our nation makes, interprets and enforces the law. “We require public ofﬁcials to take an oath to be faithful to state and federal constitutions when they’re sworn into ofﬁce,” said Leroy. “The impact of that is that even a sheriff must obey the laws as interpreted.” Huff also told the Feb. 20 gather8 ing that he answered only to his
Coeur d’Alene Republican Rep. Luke Malek already knows how he’s going to vote on Senate Concurrent Resolution 112—a toothless bill that states Idaho should never legalize marijuana for any purpose. “Having been a prosecutor, I know what a farce medical marijuana is,” Malek said in a wide-ranging conversation for this week’s Citizen feature (Page 9). Malek will have his chance soon enough, after the Idaho Senate voted 29-5 to send the measure to the House. “[Marijuana] is a signiﬁcant problem,” said the resolution’s sponsor, Boise Republican Sen. Chuck Winder. “There is a national effort to legalize marijuana; not only for medical purposes, but for recreational purposes.” Winder pointed to November 2012 decisions by Washington and Colorado voters to legalize recreational use of marijuana, as well as Oregon’s continued acceptance of medical marijuana. “Idaho is a targeted state,” said Winder. “Idaho continues to see increased marijuana busts on our interstates and it’s impacting our communities, our citizens and our children.” While Winder’s measure claims that Idaho has been “targeted for a 2014 medical marijuana initiative” and that pot legalization has led to “social, economic and legal chaos,” it does nothing more than assert that the Legislature “takes this opportunity to state its opposition” to the legal use of marijuana for any purpose. Ketchum Democratic Sen. Michelle Stennett told Winder that his resolution was “chasing ghosts that haven’t appeared yet.” “The part that disturbs me with this resolution is its overreach,” Stennett said, arguing on behalf of cancer patients who turn to marijuana for relief from chemotherapy treatments. “Please don’t dismiss this.” Boise Democratic Sen. Branden Durst echoed Stennett’s plea, asking, “Is this the right ﬁght to pick?” But in his ﬁnal argument, Winder asked, “How far do you lower the bar?” Ultimately Winder won out, with 28 senators from both parties supporting his resolution and only ﬁve Democrats—Moscow Sen. Dan Schmidt and Boise Sens. Cherie Buckner-Webb and Elliot Werk—joining Durst and Stennett in voting no. Meanwhile, Malek anxiously awaits his opportunity to weigh in on SCR 112. The Coeur d’Alene Republican is a member of the House State Affairs Committee, which will ﬁrst consider the measure when it surfaces on the House side of the Idaho Legislature. —George Prentice

SAME NAME, NEW FACE Idaho Dems change Larrys: from Grant to Kenck GEORGE PRENTICE It’s not every day that an Idaho Democrat wins a statewide ofﬁce in a landslide. Of course, it helps if he’s the only nominee. “The vote was by acclamation,” said Larry Kenck, the new Idaho Democratic Party chairman. “I had great support.” Minutes after the Feb. 23 vote of the Democratic Party State Central Committee, Kenck sat down with predecessor Larry Grant to talk to Boise Weekly about his plans for the party and how he was reluctant to take on the task at hand until a phone call from “the other Larry.” “A group from the central committee came to me and told me Larry [Grant] was resigning,” said Kenck. “I was pretty sad about that part.” But shortly after his December 2012 decision to step aside, Grant said Kenck—a Post Falls native and former Teamsters Union ofﬁcial—quickly came to the top of a very short list of possible successors. Kenck quickly added, “Nobody suggested that Grant step down.” “Larry [Grant] exited on his own and he did so gallantly,” said Kenck. “I had been in touch with a lot of Democratic movers and shakers about the possibility of me stepping in, but when Larry called me, that was the tipping point.” Grant told BW that he was more than

ready to retire after accomplishing many of his objectives for the party. “One of the past problems in the Idaho Democratic Party was that they usually tried to ﬁnd the richest white guy they could to run for ofﬁce,” said Grant. “When I came on board as chair in early 2011, we had lost three seats in the Legislature and lost a congressional seat. We were not a very happy bunch and, frankly, not well organized. I knew what we needed to do to get back in the game.” Grant said by the time he tossed the keys to Kenck, his executive staff was “solid,” the party was ﬁnancially in the black, and Idaho Democrats had recruited more candidates for the 2012 election than they had for any other contest in more than a decade.
constituents, “Not the governor; not the president.” “The sheriff is on stronger ground there,” said Leroy. “Federal executive orders are indeed mandates to federal executive ofﬁcers and not local ofﬁcials.” When asked his opinion about proposals to limit ammunition magazines on assault weapons, Huff said, “In my world, the more rounds the better. The less I have to reload the better.” Wolfe grabbed the microphone to also rail against President Obama’s calls for magazine restrictions. That’s about the time that New Plymouth Republican Sen. Monty Pearce took to the stage to chime in. “Obama has deﬁed and walked all over the Constitution,” said Pearce. Pearce was joined by his fellow District 9 legislator, Republican Rep. Judy Boyle. “I sure didn’t vote for Obama and I’m pretty sure you didn’t either,” she said to cheers, which erupted into a standing ovation. Boyle then introduced yet another legislator who’d made the trek to Payette County: Republican Rep. Mark Patterson, who represents Boise’s District 15. Patterson, who up until recently was best known for stretching the truth—neither his claim to be a graduate of the University of Southern California nor a professional road-racing cyclist 7

Kenck said Democrats—while still a slim minority at the Statehouse—stopped losing political turf in 2012. “We received more votes and closed margins in some important counties,” said Kenck. “We’re gaining our relevancy back. And now we’re understood not as a party of change but as a party of progression.” Grant added that he has reason for optimism in the 2014 elections, because minority parties tend to make gains during mid-term elections. “And I’ll tell you what we’re going to be driving home: education, the economy and ethics, that’s our focus now,” said Grant. “We’re not talking about guns. We’re not talking about abortion. It’s all about the three ‘E’s.’”
is true (BW, Citydesk, Dec. 18, 2012, “Mark Patterson: Stretching the Truth, Inaccuracies and Falsehoods”)—told the Payette gathering that he knew he was “on the right side of right” when it came to the right to bear arms. “And that’s why I’m personally working on some new legislation that will protect everyone here,” said Patterson. “And when you see my gun bills come up before the Legislature, I need you to travel to Boise to support me.” Huff said he was “constantly being approached” by his constituents, saying their “inherent rights were being threatened” by the Obama administration. “And that’s why I’ve been approached by many of those citizens to adopt a posse program,” he said. “I’m seriously looking at keeping a list of armed citizens if the need arises.” Huff will be able to build up his support at his next big public event, a so-called “Patriots Night,” where he’ll share the microphone with Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America. The $10 admission to the Saturday, March 23, event at McCain Middle School in Payette will also include a unique drawing: four guns will be rafﬂed through the evening. Tickets are $10; three for $20.

LUKE MALEK Freshman lawmaker on health care exchange, personal freedom and Garth Brooks GEORGE PRENTICE
You’re the oldest of four boys? I am. I have a 26-year-old brother in the Air Force, another brother who just turned 23 and my youngest brother is a junior in high school. We’re named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. What? Yeah. We’re Catholic. What was the big dream for you as a young man? I wanted to be a singer. I saw Garth Brooks in concert and thought I could do that. Did you pursue that dream? I did. I got a scholarship to study music at the College of Idaho but it turned out that music theory wasn’t for me. What was the fork in the road that set you on another path? I ran for student government and became the student body president in 2002-2003. Those were some pretty controversial times at the College of Idaho. How close did you get to the conversations about how ﬁnancially tenuous things were? I was the ﬁrst student to know that we had an $11 million shortfall. The president pulled me into his ofﬁce and said, “We may

have to shut our doors.” What could a student do about any of that? We were either going to turn into a professional-technical college or I proposed a plan to undergo a strategic breakdown to return to the roots of the college. And that’s what we did. What did you decide to do after graduation? I was pretty tired so I decided to work construction. Plus, I shooed horses. I did that all the way through high school and college. Do you have a family of your own? I’m engaged. How did you meet your ﬁancée? When we were in law school at the University of Idaho. We’ve been dating four years this month. Do you have a wedding date? Sunday, September 1. When did you ﬁrst decide to run for the Idaho Legislature? When Marge Chadderdon, the person who held this seat before me, decided to retire. She was extremely encouraging.

Singer, prosecutor, construction worker, lawmaker. And he’s only 31. A freshman in the Idaho House, Coeur d’Alene Republican Rep. Luke Malek dove into the political deep end when he was tasked with membership on the House Health and Welfare, State Affairs and Judiciary and Rules committees. “I love this,” said Malek, but added: “Having said that, I knew it would be difﬁcult, but it is far more difﬁcult than anything I imagined.” Between committee sessions, ﬂoor votes and a constant stream of meetings, Boise Weekly sat down with Malek to talk about his family (both parents are physicians), his music and and a search for political harmony.
What was the foundation of your campaign? I had already shared some pretty strong opinions in op-ed pieces that I had written for the Coeur d’Alene Press. Did any of those columns stir up more controversy than the rest? My columns about marijuana really struck some chords. What do you believe are the risks of legalizing recreational use of marijuana or opening the doors to medical marijuana? Having been a prosecutor, I know what a farce medical marijuana is. This campaign to legalize medical marijuana is a predatory campaign by the drug cartels. Do you think there is particular risk to Idaho with Washington’s decision to legalize recreational use of marijuana? Once you legalize it you will have no ability to regulate it and it will be opening the ﬂoodgates for drug distribution. You sit on the House Health and Welfare Committee and you came out on record, along with a number of other legislative freshmen, in support of Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter’s proposal for a state-run health insurance exchange.

conservative values up to that point.
At the age of 31 most people are hitting their professional stride but you’re the second youngest member of the Idaho House. What’s the advantage, or disadvantage, of being so young in the Idaho Legislature? The negative, I would say, is that there is a large number of people with a tremendous amount of experience that I can’t begin to touch. The converse of that is I bring a unique perspective from my generation to the table. I should note that you have several pictures in your ofﬁce of Idaho congressmen, past and present. I interned for Senators [Larry] Craig and [Mike] Crapo. Plus, I worked for Jim Risch when he was governor. How have they inﬂuenced you? Jim Risch’s question is always, “Why?” You need to always be asking that question. I think about him on a daily basis. Who do you think are the faces of the Republican Party’s future? I’m very intrigued by [Florida Sen.] Marco Rubio. I have a U.S. Constitution signed by [Louisiana Gov.] Bobby Jindal. I was very sad to see [Former South Carolina Gov.] Mark Sanford fall from grace the way he did. He was really carrying the mantle for
What’s the chance of you holding a different elected ofﬁce in the next 10 years? I’m sure I’ll hold another ofﬁce. I don’t know whether that will be at the local, state or federal level. How would you describe your politics? Nothing is more sacred to a human being than his own sense of self-worth. We need to have rules to play by, but they need to be in the context of empowering the individual. And sometimes that means choosing consequences over safety. I don’t believe in a reactionary government. I believe in a government that is centered on promoting individual freedoms. Do you think the U.S. government has gone too far in its attempt to balance protections versus infringements on personal rights? Absolutely. If I could bring anything to the table, it would be me questioning if what we’re giving up is worth it for an appearance of safety. Do you have a sense that there is some looming or pending threat to the right to bear arms? I do. There’s a clear and present public sentiment that guns are not necessary and that it should be the government’s role to protect us, rather than our own responsibility to protect ourselves. How often do you get back home to Coeur d’Alene? I try to get back every weekend. It’s important. Nothing bothers me more than politicians who feel they have ownership of their ofﬁces. We need to be in constant contact with the people.
RALL by Louis Seidman pointed out, we have foolishly elevated the Constitution to the status of a sacred text, fetishizing a supposedly “living document” that in truth has been dead for years. The result, Seidman argues, is endless petty bickering about what the meaning of “is” is—and what that stupid comma was supposed to be for. The question for any society is not how to ﬁgure out how to conform ourselves to rules and assumptions laid down by our forebears, but to come up with the smartest solutions and the best systems to make things run smoothly. If we were revolutionaries, inventing the United States from scratch, would we create the Electoral College? Doubtful. The people of the United States are changing all the time, but the U.S. government and power structure are stuck. The political “culture wars” date to the 1960s and 1980s. Our military thinks the Cold War is still going on. Once a “land of opportunity,” the United 6

States is anything but. If you’re born into a poor family, your chances of elevating yourself into the middle or upper class are lower than in other industrialized countries. “It’s becoming conventional wisdom that the United States does not have as much mobility as most other advanced countries,” said economist Isabel Sawhill of the Brookings Institution. “I don’t think you’ll ﬁnd too many people who will argue with that.” Aside from the unfairness and the instability caused by inequality and lack of social mobility, we’re losing the talents of tens of millions of Americans who will never be able to live up to their potential and contribute to the making of a more perfect union. We haven’t had a major social or political revolution since the 1960s. Like the Soviet Union, we must develop—scrapping long-held assumptions and reconsidering everything from scratch—or collapse. I think we’re headed toward collapse. WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M

WHERE HE WANDERED
WHITMAN COUNTY Colfax Pullman
“It’s been a tragic event,” Moscow Police Chief David Duke says. “It’s shocked the community.” On Jan. 20, Wiederrick slipped out of an on-campus party shortly after midnight. He likely joined hundreds of other students on the streets of the small college town, stumbling into the frigid morning for a short walk home. But while others staggered back to the warmth of their dorm rooms, he turned north and headed away from campus. No one knows why. Investigators say Wiederrick called two friends and stopped by at least two random homes, but never really asked for help. All night he drifted through the city of 23,800 people. He told others he was heading home, but never returned. His family lives with what could have been. What if he had stayed at the party? What if someone had called for help? What if he had been found sooner? His father, Bob Wiederrick, recounts his son’s many interactions along his route and sees missed chances. “It’s just a senseless tragedy,” he says. “He could have been saved at so many different times along the way.” Born and raised in Hailey, Idaho, Wiederrick grew up in the rugged backcountry of the Sun Valley region, east of Boise. His father says the 18-year-old enjoyed mountain biking, hiking, skiing and target shooting. He made friends easily. “He was just a great kid,” his father says. “He had a tremendous amount of friends. He was just very well liked and is very well missed.” Wiederrick, known as Joe, started at the University of Idaho in the fall. His father says
he planned to study architecture. Even as a young boy, he had sketched out ﬂoor plans for buildings, giving structure to his imagination. “He’s always been a good artist,” he says. “He was way more talented than I ever was.” When many of his friends headed to the University of Idaho, Wiederrick followed along, his father says. He shared a dorm room with a childhood friend in the Theophilus Tower residence hall on campus. Wiederrick had barely started his second semester when another friend from Hailey invited him to a birthday party at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. The large brick fraternity house sits on Deakin Avenue near the eastern edge of campus, just a half-mile from Theophilus Tower. Police Chief Duke says witnesses estimate about 120 students attended the party that night. Students reported Wiederrick was seen drinking, but they could not say how much. Nobody remembers seeing him walk out, but investigators believe he left shortly after midnight. Police Chief David Duke says the toxicology tests measured Wiederrick’s blood-alcohol level at .17 percent at the time of his death. Factoring in his four hours of wandering, investigators estimate his blood-alcohol level could have started as high as 0.25 to 0.3 percent. Wearing a blue winter coat, a backpack and lightweight Vans shoes, Wiederrick disappeared into the night. His roommate returned to their dorm room around 2:30 a.m., Duke says, and no one was there. Wiederrick continued to wander the streets. “He was disoriented,” Duke says, “and he apparently was lost.” At about 3 a.m., Wiederrick called his

LATAH COUNTY AREA OF DETAIL
In the early morning hours of Jan. 20, Joseph Wiederrick walked at least seven miles on a winding path from the University of Idaho campus to the northeast outskirts of Moscow. Investigators don’t know the exact route he took, but there are locations along the way where he was seen or left footprints. This map shows what is known at this point.
roommate. The roommate tells authorities Wiederrick did not say where he was or hint at any distress. Wiederrick just said he was on his way home. The roommate went to sleep. Standing alongside a large black-and-white map of Moscow, Duke says investigators do not know exactly where Wiederrick went after leaving the party. The chief points to a secluded residential neighborhood in the northeast part of town where Wiederrick showed up two and a half hours later. A woman living along the 1100 block of Highland Drive—about two and a half miles from campus—tells authorities she heard a door open just before 3 a.m. When she went to check, she found Wiederrick in her basement. “He had entered a house through an unlocked door and laid down on the ﬂoor,” Duke says. “The homeowner came down thinking it was her children and saw him laying there. … He said his name was Joe.” When the woman asked why he was there, Wiederrick reportedly said he thought he was still at the fraternity house. Duke says the woman saw Wiederrick was obviously confused, but he otherwise seemed ﬁne. She asked if she could call anyone for him. “He said no and apologized,” Duke says. “[Then he] started walking out the door and apologized again.” Investigators believe this is when Wiederrick called his roommate as he walked south along Orchard Avenue back into the city. But instead of heading toward campus, Duke says, he appears to have turned east down D Street. D Street would carry Wiederrick out past several blocks of single-family homes, past schools and playgrounds, past leaﬂess trees and chain-link fences. A yellow “Dead End” sign
stands at the far east end of the street, just shy of the city limits. Investigators say Wiederrick appears to have walked past the sign and out beyond the edge of the city, down to the end of the road where it runs into a steep pasture. Weather records show the temperature had dropped throughout the morning, nearing 24 degrees as Wiederrick struck out into the ﬁeld, stomping through several inches of snow. As the body’s core temperature drops, people often become confused and lose coordination. Medical studies show hypothermia starts with shivering and mumbling. Decisionmaking becomes muddled. Fatigue sets in. Hypothermia is known to cause apathy or lack of concern about perilous conditions. “A person with hypothermia usually isn’t aware of his or her condition, because the symptoms often begin gradually and because the confused thinking associated with hypothermia prevents self-awareness,” a Mayo Clinic report states. Alcohol can intensify the effects of hypothermia. Studies show alcohol causes blood vessels to expand, speeding up heat loss through the skin. Drinking also impairs judgment, further undermining decision-making. Duke says deputies tracked Wiederrick’s footprints up and over a snowy hill as he crossed through several wide ﬁelds on the outskirts of Moscow. He continued east through ankle-deep snow, away from the city. “He walked quite a distance in snow,” Duke says. “If you consider that all he had were Vans [shoes] on, then they were probably frozen [early] into his walk because he covered several miles in anywhere from 4 to 6 inches of snow.” WWW.

Ghost Hunters’ Steve Gonsalves and Jason Hawes talk about their search for the paranormal in a very normal talk at the Morrison Center.
SATURDAY MARCH 1 spirit GHOST HUNTERS
As if we needed further proof that clowns are creepy.
FRIDAY AND SUNDAY MARCH 1 AND MARCH 3 clowning around
What started as a reality television show in 2009 has blossomed into a full-blown tour. Following America’s obsession with ghosts, The Atlantic Paranormal Society—ofﬁce managers, plumbers, factory workers and teachers by day, investigators of all things haunted by night—is the subject of the SyFy Channel program Ghost Hunters, which has hit the road and is making a stop in Boise at the Morrison Center Saturday, March 1. APS members Jason Hawes and Steve Gonsalves will discuss the production of the show and close encounters of the spectral kind, as well as present unreleased footage and hold court for a question-and-answer session. Facing critics’ accusations, Hawes and Gonsalves will explain their method of searching for and recording paranormal activity in scientiﬁc terms— perhaps revealing that communication with the afterlife is more believable than it sounds. In an industry full of exploitation and staged events, Hawes and Gonsalves claim to stay true to their cause, but ghosts are controversial phenomena. Maybe you’re a believer, or maybe you’re a skeptic who needs a night of comic relief. Ghost Hunters’ straight-faced presentation of the search for ghosts and ghouls is entertaining for all audiences. At the end of the evening the ﬂoor will be opened to questions and stories from the audience. Will Hawes and Gonsalves be outed as charlatans looking to make a quick buck off American naivete, or will they defend their search for proof of life after death with compelling footage and sound defenses? 8 p.m., $27.50-$75.

PAGLIACCI Clowns have feelings, too. That’s what makes them so terrifying. Beneath that wooden smile is a person whose passion, rage and despair are becoming as stiff and singular as the expression painted on their face. Such is the tragedy of Pagliacci, a clown who discovers his wife is having an affair. Unable to escape his stage persona, his feverish jealousy consumes him mid-performance. Pagliacci’s story comes to the Egyptian Theatre Friday, March 1, and Sunday, March 3, courtesy of Opera Idaho. Tickets are $15-$69. For your hard-earned dough you’ll also get to see Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite, performed by Ballet Idaho. Pagliacci, written by Ruggero Leoncavallo, has been widely produced since its debut in 1892. It’s a hit with audiences, who connect with the tragic Canio the clown and star-crossed lovers Nedda and Silvio. The opera is also moving because it explores the layers of human experience and the unspoken rules of passion and behavior. Canio, the man in the clown suit, ﬁnds himself onstage and unable to break character while dealing with the emotional effects of his wife’s inﬁdelity. But mostly, people watch Pagliacci to conﬁrm their worst fears about murderous clowns and their garish getups. Preceding Pagliacci is a Ballet Idaho production of the Pulcinella Suite—a taste of the full ballet of the same name by Igor Stravinsky. Seasoned operagoers will ﬁnd Pagliacci and the Pulcinella Suite pair with intelligence and verve. For those attending an opera for the ﬁrst time, these staples of the stage will invigorate and inspire. Friday, March 1, 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, March 3, 2:30 p.m. $15-$69. Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise, 208-345-3531, operaidaho.org.

PARTY RATS Pilobolus Dance Theatre has all the right moves.
SATURDAY MARCH 2 phototropic fungus PILOBOLUS
How coordinated are you when it comes to beer?
Before the TED Talk, before the silhouetted Little Miss Sunshine homage at the Oscars, before the Hyundai commercials, Pilobolus Dance Theatre was just four male jocks and two female dancers in a small Dartmouth College classroom exploring the gymnastics, structures and physical syntax of human physiology. The year was 1971, and modern dance was becoming less of a fringe art, tiptoeing into the popular consciousness. On Saturday, March 2, Treasure Valley audiences will be assimilated into this ongoing exploration as Pilobolus 7, the troupe’s repertory arm, invades the Morrison Center for an evening-length concert. The show, which begins at 8 p.m., will feature six recent pieces, including Gnomen (1997)—a muscular representation of relational mitosis and coalescence—and the robotic Automaton (2012). Also included is Symbiosis (2001), familiar to many from its presentation at a 2005 TED conference. Now in its 41st year, Pilobolus is a worldwide phenomenon, collaborating with artists like graphic novelist Art Spiegelman—author of Maus—and parodied in Norwegian sushi commercials. Yet their work, shepherded by founding members Robby Barnett and Michael Tracy, remains rooted in exploring the foundations of existence through dance. Unlike many contemporary dance companies, which focus on a single luminary, Pilobolus grew sunward in a manner similar to the phototropic fungus after which the group is named. Choreography was often a cooperative process, and the company still refers to itself as a collective. Nowadays, Pilobolus is known less for its geeky examinations of biological processes and odes to sea organisms than it is for its rapturous shadow plays, cheeky television commercials and that OK Go music video, but it remains a benchmark for the type of work that deﬁnes modern dance. 8 p.m. $29.50-$39.50.

SUNDAY MARCH 3 drink GELANDE QUAFFING DRINKING GAME TOURNAMENT Legend has it the sport of Gelande Quafﬁng began when skiers, bending an elbow, watched as a mug of beer sent sliding down the bar fell off the edge—where it was plucked out of mid-air and chugged by a drinking-game pioneer. Right then and there, a new sport was born. Owing to its ski culture roots, the game borrows its name from gelande ski jumping. Players “pitch” beer down a slippery bar, the glass vaults into the air much like a skier on a pair of skinnies and a “quaffer” at the opposite end catches and gulps it, scoring points for precision. Gelande Quafﬁng made its way to Boise thanks to Payette Brewing Company, which is hosting a tournament that kicks off Sunday, March 3, at Sammy’s. Novices and pros alike are invited to ﬁll their bellies with beer while competing for ﬁrst-, second- and third-place prizes. The object of the game is to successfully send as many full pints of beer across the table as possible. Players pitch beer to a quafﬁng teammate, then run to the opposite side of the bar to switch roles in a fast-paced game of stamina, dexterity and agility. Scores are assigned for skill, with zero points for a dropped glass, one point for a caught glass, two points for a glass caught by its handle and a bonus point for a trick, such as catching the beer under the leg or in a 360-degree spin. Players will be organized by teams of four, with a $40 registration fee per team. Register beforehand at Sammy’s or day-of at 1 p.m., but act fast—there’s a limit of 16 teams. And if that wasn’t enough, the calories burned while Gelande Quafﬁng far exceed those burned while playing beer pong. Time to try a new drinking game. 1 p.m. $40 registration. Sammy’s, 509 W. Main St., Boise, payettebrewing.com.
Novelty toy company Archie McPhee sells Party Rats— multicolored ﬁnger lasers inexplicably shaped like rats—to keep ﬁngers cozy and free from the Bubonic Plague. The company claims Party Rats are “the mcphee.com/shop/party-rats.html best thing to happen to partying since the mirror ball.” They are sold in packages of ﬁve, which feature 1.75-inch colored rats that secure to your ﬁngers with elastic bands and spew beams of light from their tiny mouths. The package claims Party Rats are “perfect for night blogging. (Every blogger’s dream? To have rats strapped to their ﬁngers while laser beams bounce off the computer screen.) Mcphee.com also encourages consumers to use Party Rats for school or work presentations, insisting, “You’ll be sure to have everyone’s attention.” Japanese singer Yui Kameoka even wrote a fan song for Party Rats. Roughly translated, Kameoka sings: “Party Rat / Won’t you take up residence on my ﬁnger / Light the way for me to dance / It is dark in my heart except for the rat.” In addition to its utility in the school, work and night blogging departments, Party Rats are ideal for dance parties. As mcphee.com so artfully explains: “The beats are pumping, the bass is throbbing, and there you are ‘throwing shapes in the church of dance’ with bright little rats on each of your ﬁngers.” —Lauren Bergeson

Beer buffs got crooked at Crooked Fence’s ﬁrst anniversary party.
CULTURE, CHILI AND CROOKED CELEBRATIONS Though downtown Boise’s cavernous clubs were mostly empty as sheets of snow blanketed the streets Feb. 22, things were heating up inside the Reef. By 11 p.m., Bay Area funk band Monophonics had dozens of fans grooving to its “mid-tempo funk beats, peppered with staccato wubs of bass and rhythmic stabs of organ,” noted Boise Weekly’s Josh Gross. “From the audience’s perspective, the songs are almost interchangeable: a funk groove with gravelly, southern-fried vocals focused on love and power gone wrong,” said Gross. “The goal, of course, is to get people to forget their problems for a bit and refocus on what really matters: booty shaking.” With the previous evening’s snow melted into slushy puddles, BW’s Harrison Berry made his way to the Boise Art Museum Feb. 23 for the opening of its newest exhibit, Origins: Objects of Material Culture. According to Berry, Origins is a three-part exhibit that draws from Native American, Papuan (New Guinea) and Malian (Africa) material cultures from the pre-European contact period to the present day. “Perhaps the most engaging of the display rooms is dedicated to African art,” explained Berry. “Here, beautiful metalworks and representational ceremonial masks mark the diversity and sophistication of Malian culture. An elaborately carved granary door attests to advanced agricultural practices, and iron and bronze currency items like anklets and necklaces suggest smelting techniques and trade with faraway cultures.” While Berry ﬁlled his brain with art, Gross ﬁlled his gut with chili Feb. 23 at the annual Hyde Park Chili Cook-Off. “This year’s rendition of the annual Cook-Off featured an expanded roster of chilies from last year—18 instead of 11— as well as a more adventurous series of recipes, everything from simple and traditional stews to daring uses of ingredients like elk, pumpkin ale and ﬁnely chopped Swiss chard, which soaked up the chili ﬂavor magniﬁcently.” The judges, who included Gross, ultimately gave top honors to Peak Restoration’s Summer Chili, made with ancho chilies and a variety of white beans topped with queso fresco. The money raised from the cook-off beneﬁts Saint Luke’s Children’s Hospital. Speaking of full bellies, Crooked Fence Brewing celebrated its ﬁrst anniversary by tapping a mess of kegs and inviting hundreds of guests to a party at the Powerhouse Event Center Feb. 23. “Outside the venue, visitors snagged grub from Boise Fry Company, P. Ditty’s Wrap Wagon and Saint Lawrence Gridiron food trucks, while at the door, they grabbed plastic cups ﬁlled with Rusty Nail Pale Ale and 3 Picket Porter,” noted BW’s Andrew Crisp. “Wall-to-wall crowds ﬁlled both levels of the venue, almost all with cup in hand.” —Tara Morgan

CD REVIEW/NOISE MALACHI, MOURNING DAYS: VOLUME II Boise band Malachi is tailor-made for a snarky alt-weekly review. The level of non-ironic conﬁdence it pours into a live performance of its epic cheese-rock is endearing in its selfdeception. The band, with its Kiss-like stacks of equipment, gets down with its bad self onstage while singer Jeffro Hoskins wails out the sort of lyrics that Jack Black sings satirically in Tenacious D. “If I was an equestrian / I’d ride on a mighty steed,” Hoskins sings on “The Canary and a Coal Mine.” “I’m locked in a cage with creepies and crawlies / and now I feel the pain,” he sings on “Summertime.” And those are only two of the 14 tracks on Malachi’s recently released second album, Mourning Days: Volume II. The rest of the record is no less comical. “I can feel my tears ’cause they’re wet,” he sings on “Trainwreck A Comin’.” These gems of insight are embedded among riffs that fall between fantasy ﬁlm soundtracks and power ballads. Choir synth pads hum beneath phased guitar solos and Hoskins’ appeals to the forces of darkness. But Malachi is frighteningly sincere. The effort poured into Mourning Days: Volume II shows from the album’s ﬁrst apocalyptic skit to the fading screams of “back on the narwhal I ride,” on the track “Narwhale,” which closes the record. Some bands struggle to bring their members’ visions to life. Malachi isn’t one of those bands. Its vision is fully realized in painfully vivid color. The question is why on Earth it ever set on that course in the ﬁrst place. —Josh Gross WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M

ROCK AND (UNHOLY) ROLLER Reverend Horton Heat brings psychobilly gospel to Boise
The Postal Service plays a sold out Boise set.
THE TOUR THAW The frost is starting to thaw, and that means approximately a bazillion groups have just announced that they’ll be hitting the road and heading to Les Bois. Some highlights include: indie megastars The Postal Service, which will play a sold out show at the Knitting Factory Tuesday, May 28; indie rising stars Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, which will be at Neurolux Friday, March 8 with Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside; and not-yet-stars Gaytheist, which will be at The Shredder Saturday, March 9. In addition to having a great band name, Gaytheist is “the musical version of Shark Week,” according to the band’s press materials. Sounds like a party to us. Also in the shredding-like-Shark-Week category is Scott Kelly of Neurosis. Mr. Kelly will play an acoustic show at the Visual Arts Collective Wednesday, March 6, with his backup band, The Road Home, and it’s some spooky shit. Tickets for that show are $8 and now on sale. Another recent announcement is a new album from Boise’s swingingest swingers, Frim Fram 4. They of the white lapels and snappy beats are dropping I’m a Shy Guy at a special “dancing and martinis” party at the Linen Building Saturday, March 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10, both in advance and at the door. But that’s all in the future. There’s plenty of music this week, especially in the louderthan-hell category. The Shredder will host a butt-ton of loudass rock from locals The Deadlight Effect, Mariana, Machine Machine and Obscured by the Sun Saturday, March 2, along with Seattle-based Serial Hawk. That show costs $5 and starts at 9 p.m. If you come back by The Shredder Tuesday, March 5—or just pass out behind it after the March 2 show and wake up a few days later—you can catch Boise thrashmetal mastahs Krystos, stars of the most recent episode of Boise Weekly’s Scenes From a Scene. They’ll be joined by touring shredmasters Fisthammer out of Pennsylvania; Sacriﬁcial Slaughter out of California; and Master, which is on the road from the Czech Republic. That show costs $10 and gets going around 8 p.m. —Josh Gross

MASERATI, FEB. 28, NEUROLUX Like the car, it’s hard to get sleeker than the band Maserati. The Athens, Ga., quartet has been churning out stylish space jams since 2001 and it shows no signs of slowing down with its most recent release, 2012’s Maserati VII. If anything, the band is revving things up. Maserati’s early material was rooted in atmospheric postrock with swells of guitar and trickles of drums. But over the decade the songs got faster and the beat harder on albums like 2009’s Passages and 2010’s Pyramid of the Sun. The pulsating electronic beats, throbs of synth bass and heavily echoed guitar riffs on Maserati VII fall somewhere between Swedish synth-pop wunderkinds The Knife and the soundtrack to an action-packed sci-ﬁ ﬁlm. It’s the perfect recipe for a dance party or a psychedelic freak-out. —Josh Gross With Dark Swallows and Red Hands Black Feet, 7 p.m., $8 adv., $10 door.

WINESIPPER/DRINK YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT
2009 OLIVIER DUMAINE CROZES-HERMITAGE LA CROIX DU VERRE, $29 This syrah is from one of the most affordable regions of the northern Rhone. While dark berry fruit dominates the nose, it’s backed by characteristic nuances of game, earth, tobacco and leather. It is a well-balanced wine with smooth, ripe berry ﬂavors that play against crisp, food-friendly acidity. Ripe supple tannins come through on the wine’s long ﬁnish. 2011 CHATEAU DE SAINT COSME COTES DU RHONE, $14.99 This wine comes from one of the top producers in the region—Saint Cosme’s 2010 gigondas ranked No. 2 in the current Wine Spectator Top 100. Southern Rhones like this are typically grenache-dominant blends, but this one is 100 percent syrah. The aromas are a heady mix of crushed blueberries, fresh ground espresso, green tea, smoke and mint. With time in the glass, this wine opens up to reveal bright red fruit ﬂavors with touches of licorice, mocha and leather that linger nicely. 2009 TARDIEU-LAURENT COTES DU RHONE VILLAGES, LES BECS FINS, $22 As the other entry from the southern Rhone, this wine is a blend that’s 60 percent syrah with the remainder grenache. Not surprisingly, that percentage of grenache helps make this the most fruit-forward and userfriendly of the trio. Cherry and raspberry jam on the nose segue into ripe cherry and berry on the palate. This is a delicious choice for current consumption.

France’s Rhone Valley is home to some of the world’s ﬁnest syrah—especially in the north, where that grape rules. So I was disappointed a few weeks back when no one submitted a French wine for our syrah tasting. This time around, I put in a request for northern Rhones, but it turns out that most local distributors don’t carry them because they tend to be rather expensive. With this tasting, we expanded the parameters a bit and the winning lineup includes one from the north and two from the south.
CRAFTING LEGISLATION Craft breweries ﬁght to change outdated laws CHRISTINA MARFICE When craft beer brewers and supporters gather in Washington, D.C. next month, Payette Brewing Company’s Sheila Francis will be Idaho’s sole representative. But she’ll be far from alone. Joining more than 230 Brewers Association members from 215 breweries in 46 states, Francis will climb the Hill on Monday, March 25, in support of the Small Brewer Reinvestment and Expanding Workforce Act, or the Small BREW Act. The mission is simple: lobby for legislation that could change the way small breweries are taxed. “We’ve contacted everybody’s senators’ and representatives’ ofﬁces to arrange for meetings to start the conversation about what the bill is and tell our stories about who we are as small brewers in different states,” Francis said. As Payette Brewing’s director of marketing and events—and the president and founder of Idaho Brewers United—Francis will meet with lawmakers about all of the Gem State’s craft and microbrew interests. Most important, though, is garnering support for the Small BREW Act, which would reduce federal excise taxes on beer brewed at small craft breweries by half— from $7 to $3.50—on the ﬁrst 60,000 barrels produced. What’s more, the measure would lower the current $18 rate to $16 per barrel on production between 60,000 and 2 million barrels. Only breweries producing fewer than 6 million barrels annually would qualify for these lowered rates. For Francis, and other Small BREW Act supporters, it’s high time those rates were brought down—excise taxes on beer were implemented during the Civil War and haven’t been revised since 1976. “When the beer tax was enacted, it was essentially a luxury tax,” she said. “It was grouped in with a lot of taxes that were for large-ticket items that only the super-rich could afford, but beer is not a rich person’s drink. It’s an everyperson’s drink. The tax is kind of antiquated in that sense.” Craft beer sales amount to just less than 6 percent of the nation’s beer sales by volume, but lowering excise taxes for small breweries could help change that. Francis thinks lowering the rates will allow small brewers to better compete in a market that is dominated by large producers. “I don’t want to say it’s about leveling the playing ﬁeld, but we’re just getting the opportunity to have our businesses grow, and when there’s a lot of tax involved, it’s really hard to do that,” she said. “It creates a friendly business environment for the smaller guys.”
Payette Brewing’s Sheila Francis takes a (keg) stand for small brewers.
According to the Craft Brewers Association, small breweries provide more than 100,000 jobs in the United States. And while overall beer sales in the United States were down 1.3 percent by volume in 2011, sales of craft beers increased by about 1 percent—nearly 1 million barrels. The craft beer industry is especially booming in Idaho; the Treasure Valley alone now boasts nine craft breweries. “In spite of having a signiﬁcant tax burden put on us, brewers have kind of overcome that,” Francis said. “We’re still growing and reinvesting, even though it’s a burden to pay those taxes and still produce as we are. Essentially, a new brewery opened up every day last year somewhere in the country, which is incredible growth.” The Small BREW Act was introduced in the 2011 Congress and gained the support of 174 U.S. representatives before it died in committee. A Senate measure was also introduced in 2011 that contained identical tax recalibration provisions and was co-sponsored by Republican Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo. This year’s reintroduced Small BREW Act is identical to the previous version and has bipartisan co-sponsor support. While no similar bill has been reintroduced in the Senate this year, Crapo’s ofﬁce conﬁrmed that the measure would still have his full support (despite the Mormon lawmaker’s recent DUI). “He’s always been a big supporter because of the effect on small business and the effect on agriculture,” said Lindsay Nothern, Crapo’s Idaho press secretary. “It’s a great thing for Idaho.” Idaho is also revising its own legislation
to better allow craft breweries to thrive in the Gem State. During the 2012 legislative session, Fred Colby, co-founder and co-owner of Laughing Dog Brewing Company, lobbied the Legislature to change a law that limited his ability to work with other breweries around the state. Colby, whose brewery is located in the small town of Ponderay, in north Idaho, wanted to invest in a Post Falls brewery but it was against the law to have separate wholesale and retail licenses on different breweries. With the help of a handful of Idaho legislators, Colby revised the law. It now allows Idaho microbrewers an interest in up to two breweries. And the current legislative session is taking further steps to help out the state’s microbrewers. Many craft brewers operate in small quantities, like one-sixth kegs, which contain about 40 pints of beer. But small kegs, long sold by Treasure Valley distributors, are actually illegal in Idaho. This outdated law prompted Twin Falls Republican Sen. Jim Patrick to sponsor a measure to revise the law, allowing small kegs to be legally sold in Idaho. “The practice has been to sell the stuff at ﬁve gallons, but since it was found to be illegal, we’re trying to tweak the law,” Patrick said. “This is for tasty beer. It’s not a volume thing. It’s not for alcohol; it’s for the ﬂavors.” Patrick’s Senate Bill 1058 received a unanimous vote to move from the Senate State Affairs Committee to the Senate ﬂoor Feb. 21. Sen. Patrick sees no reason he won’t be able to get the bill passed this session. 25 Francis has been cutting her

Kana and Keoni Tyler are back on the Hawaiian wagon.
JAMES BEARD HONORS IDAHO CHEFS AND KANA GIRL’S REOPENS After the heated dismissal of longtime Capital City Public Market founder and executive director Karen Ellis in September 2012, the CCPM executive board has ﬁnally named a replacement. Lisa Duplessie has worked with the market for eight years, previously serving as market manager. The CCPM board called the move to hire Duplessie a “signiﬁcant step” toward building a world-class public market, one that supports local food growers, producers and artisans. CCPM will reopen Saturday, April 20, and run through Saturday, Dec. 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Ellis is now working with a new downtown Saturday market, the Boise Farmers Market, which will open Saturday, April 6, in a parking lot at the corner of 11th and Front streets. The Boise Farmers Market will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., every Saturday through October, and will offer local produce and goods from Homestead Natural Foods, The Jelly Lady, Triangle C Ranch, Rice Family Farms and others. Moving from local food to local laurels, the James Beard Foundation just announced its list of 2013 Restaurant and Chef Award semiﬁnalists, and two Idahoans made the Northwest’s Best Chef list: chef Gary Kucy at Rupert’s in the Hotel McCall, and Taite Pearson at Della Mano in Ketchum. The James Beard Awards will take place Friday, May 3, and Monday, May 6, in New York City. In opening news, husband-and-wife team Keoni and Kana Tyler are heading back into the kitchen this spring to reopen Kana Girl’s Hawai’ian BBQ on State Street. After closing more than two years ago, Kana said the restaurant plans to reopen at the site of the former Smoke Inn, 3912 W. State St., Saturday, April 13, with a menu similar to one offered at its original location on Franklin Road in Meridian. “Our standard menu will be pretty much the same,” Kana said. “We have speciﬁc gluten-free and vegetarian menus, and he’s working on a low-sodium menu. The gluten-free is pretty substantial; the soy sauce base that he uses to make the teriyaki sauces is gluten-free, which is unusual. Most folks who have issues with gluten can’t eat teriyaki.” According to Kana, the pair is excited to reopen the restaurant after having to close the previous location for personal reasons. “The short story is that he and I are both recovering alcoholics, and we relapsed, and we both threw it away,” she said. Kana Girl’s will be open Tuesday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
legislative teeth lobbying on behalf of Senate Bill 1058, but she’s eager for her trip to Washington to lobby for a national initiative that will beneﬁt craft breweries like Payette. It won’t be easy, though. According to Francis, proponents of the Small BREW Act will face their biggest challenge in convincing Congress to enact a tax cut during a time of such ﬁscal uncertainty. “It is a tax cut, so that’s always an issue,” Francis said. “Where’s the money going to go that we were paying, since that source of revenue will be cut in half? We are a growing industry that’s thriving, so there may be some that question as to why we’d need lower taxes for an industry that’s doing really, really well across the country.” But Francis is optimistic Congress will recognize that craft breweries have become an integral and celebrated part of the national beer industry, deserving of legislation that promotes further growth “I think what’s really cool is craft brewers are being viewed a little bit differently and gaining a lot of recognition as important parts of the industry,” she said. “We’re still on a really small scale. There is still a far more signiﬁcant inﬂuence from the really large producers. A lot of breweries have great stories behind them and they’re really relatable and personable, so they’re like a mom and pop store you can ﬁnd, [they] just have a different kind of product.” Like mom and pop stores, though, they need all the help they can get. “Paying a little less in taxes means more opportunity to reinvest those extra funds into brewing and building our own breweries and getting our products out there,” Francis said. “If you’re paying less in taxes, I guess you’d say we’re more inclined—and there’s better opportunity—to invest in ourselves and our businesses.” 24

BOISEweekly C L A S S I F I E D S | FEBRUARY 27 – MARCH 5, 2013 | 29
MIND, BODY, SPIRIT
FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): In 1993, Frenchman Emile Leray was on a solo trip through the Sahara Desert. In the middle of nowhere, his car suffered a major breakdown. It was unfixable. But he didn’t panic. Instead, he used a few basic tools he had on hand to dismantle the vehicle and convert its parts into a makeshift motorcycle. He was able to ride it back to civilization. I foresee the possibility of a metaphorically similar development in your future, Aries. You will get the opportunity to be very resourceful as you turn an apparent setback into a successful twist of fate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your power animal is not the soaring eagle, the shrewd wolf or the brave bear. No, Taurus, it’s the rubber chicken. With the rubber chicken as your guardian spirit you might be inspired to commit random acts of goofiness and surrealism. That would reduce tension in the people around you. It could motivate you to play jokes and harmless pranks that influence everyone to take themselves less seriously. Are you willing to risk losing your dignity if it helps make the mood looser and more generous? Nothing could be better for group solidarity, which is crucial these days. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): In the language of the Huron Indians, “orenda” is a word that refers to the spiritual power that resides in all creatures and things. If you’ve got enough of it, you may be able to declare at least partial independence from your own past. You can better shape the life you want for yourself rather than being so thoroughly subject to the limitations of your karma and conditioning. I happen to believe that your current supply of orenda is unusually abundant, Gemini. What’s the best use you can make of it? CANCER (June 21-July 22): When I lived in Santa Cruz, Calif., years ago, some of my writings were illustrated by a cartoonist named Karl Vidstrand. His work was funny, outrageous and often offensive in the most entertaining ways. Eventually he wandered away from our colorful, creative community and moved to a small town at the edge of California’s Mojave Desert. He liked living at the fringes of space, he told journalist R.D. Pickle. It gave him the sense of “being out of bounds at all times.” I suggest you adopt some of the spirit in the next three weeks, Cancerian. Being on the fringes and out of bounds are exactly where you belong. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The history of your pain is entering a new phase. Gradually, almost imperceptibly at first, an emotional ache that has been sapping your vitality will begin to diminish.
30 | FEBRUARY 27 – MARCH 5, 2013 | BOISEweekly C L A S S I F I E D S
You will free yourself of its power to define you. You will learn to live without its oddly seductive glamour. More and more, as the weeks go by, you will find yourself less interested in it, less attracted to the maddening mystery it has foisted on you. No later than mid-April, I’m guessing that you will be ready to conduct a ritual of completion; you’ll be able to give it a formal send-off as you squeeze one last lesson out of it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “When looking for a book, you may discover that you were in fact looking for the book next to it.” Italian writer Roberto Calasso told that to The Paris Review, and now I’m passing it on to you. But I’d like you to expand upon its meaning, and regard it as a metaphor that applies to your whole life right now. Every time you go searching for a specific something—a learning experience, an invigorating pleasure, a helpful influence—consider the possibility that what you really want and need is a different one that’s nearby. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): At least once a day, a cell in your body mutates in a way that makes it potentially cancerous. Just as often, your immune system hunts down that dangerous cell and kills it, preserving your health. Do you understand how amazing this is? You have a vigilant protector that’s always on duty, operating below the level of your awareness. What if I told you that this physical aspect of your organism has an equivalent psychic component? What if, in other words, you have within you a higher intelligence whose function it is to steer you away from useless trouble and dumb risks? I say there is such a thing. I say this other protector works best if you maintain a conscious relationship with it, asking it to guide you and instruct you. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to deepen your connection. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some rules in the game of life don’t apply to you and can therefore be safely ignored. Do you know which ones they are? On the other hand, do you understand which of the rules in the game of life are crucial to observe if you want to translate your fondest dreams into real experiences? To recognize the difference is a high art. I’m thinking that now would be an excellent time to solidify your mastery of this distinction. I suggest that you formally renounce your investment in the irrelevant rules and polish your skills at playing by the applicable rules. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter,” wrote the Persian mystic poet Rumi. “It’s
quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.” I think you’re like that winter garden right now, Sagittarius. Outwardly, there’s not much heat and flash. Bright ideas and strong opinions are not pouring out of you at their usual rates. You’re not even prone to talking too loud or accidentally knocking things over. This may in fact be as close as you can get to being a wallflower. And yet deep beneath the surface, out of sight from casual observers, you are charging up your psychic battery. The action down there is vibrant and vigorous. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “When you come right down to it,” says religion writer Rabbi Marc Gellman, “there are only four basic prayers. Gimme! Thanks! Oops! and Wow!” Personally, I would add a fifth type of prayer to Gellman’s list: “Do you need any assistance?” The Creator always needs collaborators to help implement the gritty details of the latest divine schemes. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you would be an excellent choice to volunteer for that role right now—especially in tasks that involve blending beautiful fragments, healing sad schisms, furthering peace negotiations and overcoming seemingly irreconcilable differences. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In the movie Fight Club, there is an animated scene at the very end that required an inordinate amount of time to produce. Each frame in this scene took the editors eight hours to process. Since there are 24 frames in each second, their work went on for three weeks. That’s the kind of attention to detail I recommend you summon as you devote yourself to your labor of love in the coming days, Aquarius. I think you know which specific parts of your creation need such intense focus. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “I have decided to rename the constellations that have domineered our skies too long,” writes an Internet denizen named Hasheeshee St. Frank. He gives only one example. The Big Dipper, he says, shall forevermore be known as The Star-Spangled Gas Can. I invite you to come up with additional substitutes, Pisces. It’s an excellent time for you to reshape and redefine the high and mighty things to which you have given away too much of your power. It’s a perfect moment to reconfigure your relationship with impersonal, overarching forces that have wielded a disproportionately large influence over your thoughts and feelings. How about if you call the constellation Orion by the new title of ThreeEyed Orangutan? Or instead of Pegasus, use the name Sexy Dolphin? Other ideas?
