NOTE BACK TO BUSINESS The four-day storm of Treefort has passed, and we here at Boise Weekly can’t say enough about the bands, the crowds and, most of all, the organizers, who not only created a fantastic event but managed to cement—in just one year—a bona fide Boise institution. BW went into war correspondency mode and covered the music festival from a fortified suite at The Modern Hotel, producing round-the-clock blog posts, interviews and slideshows of the goings-on. If you missed anything—or need to reminisce a little as part of a post-fest, multi-step recovery program—it’s all still online at This week, it’s back to business, literally, and among the big news in this week’s edition is the confirmation, made by Mayor Dave Bieter on March 21, that Trader Joe’s is indeed coming to Boise. It’s a story that BW has been covering for a while now, despite the fact that getting anyone in the know to talk about it felt like trying to break Watergate (well, that might be going a little far). Nonetheless, the rumors are true, and sometime in 2014, that monstrous gravel lot along Capitol Boulevard will be transformed into “your neighborhood grocery store,” as the signs say. While it’s generally good news when any large employer opens a new location, more often than not, during the Great Recession, “new” jobs usually mean “low-wage” jobs—and that’s one thing Idaho has plenty of. According to a Pew Research Center report, Idaho jobs paid nearly $11,000 less than the national average in 2009. But, as a piece published March 25 in The Atlantic pointed out, Trader Joe’s is among a handful of low-cost retailers that have found that by paying higher wages to entry level employees, they increase efficiency, improve customer service and see a boost in sales. Are big retailers like Trader Joe’s the recipe for economic recovery? By most all analyses, no. The economy is already brimming with service industry positions—often filled by overqualified workers cut down by the recession—which is a trend some economists predict can actually slow the recovery. But if those retailers actually invest in their workers, as the Atlantic says Trader Joe’s does, those new jobs can actually serve as pathways to something better; you know, like the American Dream, and all that. —Zach Hagadone

state, along with every carping shrew of a political observer, went after poor young Crane as though he had uttered something remarkably stupid. Yet throughout the persecution of this brilliant, up-and-coming future political appointee, the most germane possibility has been overlooked. What if Rosa Parks actually was protesting the heavy hand of federal intervention in affairs that properly belong to the states? She wasn’t a white person, no, but that doesn’t mean we can assume she didn’t appreciate visionaries like George Wallace, Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond. Is it so impossible to believe that Parks was adding her voice to an illustrious line of American heroes who have grown “tired of giving in to the federal government?” Take Cesar Chavez, roughly the same generation as Rosa Parks, and with the same determination to return America to the constitutional principle of Employer Sovereignty. Have we so soon forgotten the sacrifices he made by calling for a nationwide boycott on grapes, all to bring attention to the stranglehold that OSHA (Occupational “Socialism and Heathenism” Administration) had on common working men and women? Let us also recall how Susan B. Anthony strove throughout her life to get Washington, D.C., bureaucrats and proto-pinkos to end government funding of the vile Planned Parenthood, detested by freedom-loving females for forcing the evils of universal suffrage and public schooling on them. Further back, we have William Clark and Meriwether Lewis leading a handful of Minutemen into the unregulated West because they’d had enough of the jackboots in the EPA telling them what they could and could not do on their own property. (I believe it was Lewis who yelled across the Columbia River to Clark, “Give me liberty, or give me exclusive timber and mining rights!”) Finally, let us never forget that the Founding Fathers, themselves, conceived the federal government for no other purpose than to keep the federal government off the backs of those white male landowners who turned out to be the ancestors of you and I—if not Rosa Parks, exactly. There are too many great champions of Small Government and Voter Identification Laws to list! Walt Whitman, John Muir, Harriet Tubman, the Stonewall Boys, Natty Bumppo, Walt Disney, Martin Luther ... (At this point, I could contribute no more. I tore myself away from the keyboard and called this exorcist guy I know. Between him and the half-rack of PBR he brought, the otherworldly presence was driven out and I’m back to normal. I just hope he never come back, whoever he was—B.C.)

Those who forget history are condemned to making up stuff and calling it history. — This might well have been said by any number of people, so I don’t feel at all uneasy about using it here as an authentic quote, even though there is no evidence anyone ever actually said it. U (Note to reader: I woke up this morning not feeling quite myself. At first, I suspected I was coming down with something. But as soon as I started writing, I realized I had been possessed. The uncanny dreams I’d had in the night were not dreams at all. A presence from either the shadow world of disembodied spirits, or from Canyon County—it’s hard to know which—had taken control of my fingers as they skittered over the keyboard. The following is the result of that unnatural infestation—B.C.) It is a tactic we know all too well. So often, when a patriot refuses to be intimidated out of speaking what is true, the sneering jackals of the media elite run him to ground with ridicule and gnaw at his noble entrails with mockery. Can we ever forgive what they did with our last legitimate president? A laughing stock, they made of him. The butt of a thousand barbs! A caricature! A clown! A cartoon baboon with bowed legs! And all because he might have misspoke a few hundred times. And now, it’s one of our own they torment. One of Idaho’s best and brightest, and they are laughing at him, the curs! We all know the Cranes of Nampa, I’m sure. Ron Crane was state treasurer for 16 years, following eight terms as a conservative stalwart in the Idaho Legislature. His son, Brent, is following in those footsteps, making him the second-generation Crane to feather himself a cozy government nest, largely by condemning government. A family of true Americans, indeed, and we can only hope there are more Crane generations coming who will suckle at the teat of Idaho taxpayers. However, last week, Brent put his conservative foot in his conservative mouth when he insinuated that Rosa Parks had taken her famous stand (or sit, to be precise) on a public bus in Alabama in order to defend a state’s right to treat its citizens any way it so chooses. Likening his own solid Tea Party attitudes to that of Parks’ defiance, Crane gallantly declared, “I’ve reached that point ... that I’m tired of giving in to the federal government.” What Crane said was in the context of his heroic opposition to the curse of Obamacare. But as our legislative leaders have yet to figure out a way to keep liberal reporters and other degenerates out of the room when debating important matters, his comments were made public. After that, need I say, every historical revisionist in the

THE QUAGMIRE PATTERN Ten years into the Iraq War, we repeat in Syria

The Quagmire Pattern always seems to play out the same way. There’s a civil war in some country deemed by the CIA to be of strategic importance (i.e., energy reserves). During the initial stage, a secular socialist dictatorship fights Muslim insurgents who want to create an Islamist theocracy. To build support, the conflict is cast to and by the media as a struggle between tyrannical torturers and freedom-loving underdogs. The Pentagon selects a rebel faction to support, typically the most radical, and sends them money and weapons and trainers. It works. Yay. Civil war ensues. Not so yay. The craziest religious zealots are poised to prevail in the second stage. Suffering from buyers’/backers’ remorse, the United States now decides to back the most moderate faction among the former opposition. Then the quagmire begins. The trouble is, the radicals are still fanatical. So the United States pours in more help to their new moderate allies—whatever it takes to win an “honorable peace”—and install a moderate regime before withdrawing. The moderates, you see, never had the support of most of their country’s people. They didn’t earn their stripes in the war against the former regime. Putting them in power isn’t enough. Boy, is the United States in a pickle. Americans troops are getting offed by a determined radical insurgency. Moreover, their puppet allies are a pain in the ass. The puppetpuppetmaster relationship is inherently one characterized by mistrust. However, the electorate isn’t told this. They are repeatedly told that abandonment is the problem. “The decisive factor in terms of the

rise of the Taliban and al-Qaida was the fact that the United States and most of the international community simply walked away and left it to Pakistan and to other more extremist elements to determine Afghanistan’s future in the ’90s,” claims James Dobbins, former U.S. envoy to Afghanistan, Bosnia and Kosovo. The implication, of course, is that the United States shouldn’t have left Afghanistan in the early 1990s. The problem with this argument is that we have been over there for 12 years, and have little to show for our efforts. The Quagmire Pattern has played out in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, where a weak central government propped up by the Obama administration is sitting on its hands. The Quagmire Pattern is unfolding again, this time in Syria. When the uprising against the secular socialist government of Bashar alAssad began two years ago, the United States rushed in with money, trainers and indirect arms sales. Now people like Dobbins are arguing in favor of weapons transfers from Pentagon arms depots to the Syrian opposition. Dobbins admits that there are “geopolitical risks,” yet he still wants to arm the Syrian rebels, who include members of al-Qaida. There is, he told NPR, “the possibility that the intervention wouldn’t work and that it would look like a failure.” So why does he still want to give weapons to people who will probably wind up aiming them at American soldiers? “I think the consequences of not acting and the risks of not acting are even greater,” Dobbins said. We do what we do because that’s what we do. That’s how the Quagmire Pattern works.



POWER POINTS New study: Idaho leads much of the nation in energy code compliance GEORGE PRENTICE


Ken Baker, owner of Boise-based K Energy, is an energy efficiency educator, co-founder of the University of Idaho Integrated Design Lab and led the governor’s task force for the Idaho Strategic Energy Alliance.

The study found that a statistical sampling indicates new Idaho homes were 90 percent compliant. “Idaho did extremely well,” said David Cohan, senior manager of the Portland-based NEEA. “I think that 90 percent compliance was an unbelievably high mark to set. And there are many states with compliance rates that are around 40, 50 or 60 percent.” The independent study, performed by the Portland-based Cadmus Group and commissioned by NEEA, was triggered by federal requirements tied to nearly $50 million in stimulus funds sent to Idaho as part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Simply put, feds told states that they must be at a 90 percent compliance rate with the International Energy Conservation Code by 2017. Using three different methodologies, NEAA found that Idaho’s compliance rates were 83, 90 and 109 percent compliance (the 109 percent rate means that, in many instances, the sampling of new Idaho homes exceeded the required standards). “Idaho showing up at 90 percent or higher was spectacular,” said Cohan. “Most states weren’t even in the ballpark.” That was sweet music to the ears of Ron Whitney, deputy administrator for the Idaho State Division of Building Safety. “I’m very glad to hear him say that,” Whitney told Boise Weekly. Whitney knows a thing or two about building homes in Idaho. Prior to his state government job, Whitney spent 38 years in consumer and commercial building design and construction in the Gem State. “A homebuilder almost always says, ‘If a buyer wants it, I’ll build it,’” said Whitney. “Sometimes you’ll find buyers who are savvy enough to ask for energy conservation measures; sometimes you won’t.” Cohan agreed, saying homebuilders are all too anxious to satisfy their customers. “And sometimes that consumer doesn’t

want efficiency,” said Cohan. “Instead, they want granite countertops.” But Baker was quick to point to a study that indicates a shift in consumer preferences. “It was just published by the National Association of Homebuilders, a study called What Homebuyers Really Want, and for the first time, what they really want is energy efficiency,” said Baker. “You can’t deny that. It’s not just granite countertops. It’s energy efficiency.” According to the study, conducted by NAHB’s Economics and Housing Policy Group, “nine out of 10 buyers would rather buy a home with energy-efficient features and permanently lower utility bills than one without.” Cohan stressed, however, that selling energy-efficient upgrades to consumers remains a challenge. “The problem, and it’s a pretty large one for energy-efficient advocates, is that the value of that efficiency isn’t totally appreciated or understood in the marketplace,” he said. “So, we’re working with realtors and appraisers to try to get them to sell efficiency to consumers. When you’re raising the price of a home, it’s difficult to tell a consumer how great it is to have thicker walls.” Baker said most consumers don’t realize that the cost-benefits of investing in tighter insulation, better air circulation and efficient lighting reconcile sooner than later. “I believe the payback to the homebuyer is phenomenal. It’s less than five years,” said Baker. “And if you’re financing that incremental cost and you roll that into your mortgage, you’re putting money back into your pocket from the first month.” Another of Baker’s PowerPoint slides on March 22 displayed a fairly simple pie chart, divided into three sections. “This pie chart never used to change 8 for decades,” said Baker. “Very simply, this pie is divided into three equal divi-

Margaret Henbest—executive director at Nurse Leaders of Idaho—recently reached out to hundreds of her organization’s members in every corner of the Gem State, asking them how long and deep a shadow the threat of violence casts over Idaho’s emergency rooms and care centers. “The first response came back within 10 minutes,” said Henbest. “And the emails kept coming for days; story after story.” Henbest said she heard about attempted rape, teeth being punched out, stabbings, concussions and broken noses. Henbest stood before Idaho lawmakers March 25, describing what she called “a culture of tolerance that allows violence against health care workers.” Henbest urged members of the Senate Judiciary and Rules Committee to help push House Bill 292, which would strengthen protections for Idaho health care professionals who are assaulted while on the job. In particular, HB 292 would make an assault against a health care worker a felony, much like current protections for social workers, police officers and firefighters. “I’ve been assaulted twice,” said Dr. Mark Urban, pediatric emergency medical director for the St. Luke’s Health System. “With an increase in prescription drug abuse, we’re seeing more assaults when some caregivers refuse those medications.” Urban and Henbest joined a number of caregivers advocating for more protection. “There has been an escalation against health care workers—roughly three times as many violent crimes as any other private sector profession,” said David Lehman, spokesman for Kootenai Medical Center. “Health care workers are afraid of their patients, some even hiding their identities.” Committee members agreed to move the bill forward, but some had caveats. “The fact that we have this many assaults on our health care workers disgusts me,” said Meridian Republican Sen. Marv Hagedorn. “I don’t think this bill is going to stop that but we have to make an effort. It’s unacceptable.” HB 292, which was introduced by freshman Coeur d’Alene Republican Rep. Luke Malek, has already been passed by the full House and now heads to the full Senate for its consideration before it can be signed into law by Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter. —George Prentice


Ken Baker is pretty good at reading his audience. A 30-year veteran educator, energy consultant and the first chairman of Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter’s Idaho Strategic Energy Alliance Conservation Task Force, Baker surveyed a crowded upstairs room at Boise’s Owyhee Hotel March 22. The audience—a collection of government officials and representatives from the private sector, including Idaho Power, Hewlett-Packard and URS—were present to hear Baker talk about a decidedly un-sexysounding, though vitally important topic: “energy codes,” the government standards used by designers and builders to realize energy savings while protecting natural resources. Baker, who came to the Idaho Environmental Forum equipped with more than a dozen charts and graphs and a half-dozen more public and private research studies, abruptly stopped his PowerPoint presentation and paused for a moment. “I need to tell you about a phone call I had recently. I called an acquaintance of mine— someone I’ve known for more than 20 years; and in all that time I always tried to educate him about the importance of energy codes,” Baker said. “He has since retired and I called him up to see how he was doing personally, but he couldn’t stop talking about energy codes. I asked him why he had a change of heart and he said, ‘I must admit that I never fully bought into the concept of energy codes before. But I have a son in the military, and he has served two tours in Iraq and another tour in Afghanistan. And I can’t help but think that if we had thought a bit more about energy here, maybe our entry into those conflicts wouldn’t have had to happen.” Baker paused again to note that more than a few heads in the room were nodding. Baker told Boise Weekly that the urgency of energy efficiency crosses political boundaries. “For example, I’ve learned by working with Idaho legislators that conservation and conservative values are natural alliances,” he said. “In the case of energy codes, everyone pretty much understands that you’re doing a disservice to your communities if you don’t support these types of programs.” To that end, Baker said he wasn’t too surprised to learn that a just-released study from the nonprofit Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance revealed that Idaho is head and shoulders above most U.S. states in compliance with the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code, approved by the 2010 Idaho Legislature and effective in the Gem State since January 2011.

Do you know what this means? This means we can have the biggest impact on the nation’s energy consumption by focusing on our buildings.” In addition to his environmental and economic arguments, Baker said his recent experience in upgrading Idaho public schools was, perhaps, the most personal.

“I’ve been helping the state of Idaho with its K-12 Energy Efficiency Project,” he said, referring to the initiative, fueled by $17 million in federal stimulus dollars, along with State Energy Program funds. “We looked at over 800 school buildings across the state. The overall management of the project was huge.” The project resulted in HVAC, mechanical and water-saving retrofits to schools in every corner of Idaho, but Baker said the most tangible change was in lighting upgrades. “We walked into some Idaho schools where the lighting was literally yellow,” he said. “It was very old, high-pressure sodium lighting, the kind you see in parking lots. The lighting was so low that you were afraid the kids were going to get hurt. Well, our contractors put in new lighting into those hallways, classrooms, gymnasiums and those mechanical shops in

technical schools. And by the time we walked out of there, the kids had state-of-the-art lighting. And something like that is much more than energy efficiency. It’s safety.” Cohan said fewer citizens are pushing back against 21st century energy codes but that doesn’t mean they still don’t have questions. “You will rarely find anyone raise their hand anymore and say, ‘I hate energy efficiency.’ Everybody will say they like it,” said Cohan. “But what it still comes down to are questions over costs and timelines.” Baker said he loves to answer all of those questions. But depending on his audience, different answers are important to different people: Sometimes it’s the environment; sometimes it’s money; and sometimes it’s a child’s safety. It can even mean a decision to go to war. WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M


MANNA HANCOCK Goody’s chocolatier talks about her sweet life GEORGE PRENTICE

You have a rather unique first name. Manna is biblical; it’s the bread from heaven that God provided the Israelites. It would be a strange name if it didn’t have a meaning behind it. How long have you worked at Goody’s? This year will be my seventh summer. When I was away at college, I would come back and work each summer but I’ve been here full-time for almost two years now. What did you study in college? I have a degree in music. I’m a pianist. Do you play professionally? I work with a cellist. He’s pursuing his master’s degree. And I teach a music appreciation class at the Aaron Academy. Is it ideal for you to balance your two passions? I’ve worked at Goody’s for several years and I never would have thought about making chocolate before two years ago. But when I said “yes,” I discovered that I absolutely love it.

(Nearby, two toddlers—barely old enough to take their first steps—pierced the air with alternating screeches and laughs.) You must see a lot of little ones who are coming here for the first time. One of my favorite moments on the job is when I hand a kid their first ice cream cone and their eyes just light up. And they get that look: “Oh my goodness, that’s for me?” Oh, I love that. The best thing about my job is my co-workers, but a close second is the happiness from kids. How many types of chocolates do you make? I have to count sometimes; dozens of types of chocolates, hundreds of individual chocolates. I tried to estimate how many I made one day and it was close to 1,000. And the best sellers? Turtles are really popular. Let’s see, there are fruit cremes, chocolate-dipped cherries and all of our truffles. My favorite is the amaretto truffle. But we have coconut, coffee bean, Irish Cream, Grand Marnier, Kahlua

and cream and dark chocolate silk truffles. Lately, our chocolate-dipped Oreos have become big sellers. And they’re really fun, because we add special holiday decorations. And are there basic chocolate flavors? You can do all different types of flavorings—and there are endless possibilities— but the standards are milk chocolate, mint chocolate, white chocolate and dark chocolate, with varying degrees of bitterness.


To visit Manna Hancock’s “office,” you open a door next a huge kettle of freshly made caramel corn, keep walking past a mini-confab of stuffed bunnies and kittens, pass by glass showcases of 60 different types of chocolates, make a left at the soda fountain, offering a dozen varieties of homemade ice cream, and walk into a compact kitchen, where dreams are concocted. “Over there, we have all of the special things we have for Easter: sour bunnies, speckled chocolate malted eggs, and our special Easter sprinkles,” said Hancock. “I’m a sucker for cute things. I think they’re just adorable.” But it’s all about the chocolate for Hancock. She’s the so-called “chocolatier” at Goody’s Soda Fountain and Candy Store—the Boise sweet shop that has swung its doors open in the North End’s Hyde Park neighborhood for 17 years. And while she regularly joins more than a dozen Goody’s co-workers serving homemade ice cream, Hancock and a colleague spend most of their days crafting dozens of types of chocolates. With Easter right around the corner, Hancock took a few spare moments to talk about the sweetest gig in town.

Is milk chocolate the favorite? You would think, but I definitely see a rise in the popularity of dark chocolate. People say, “Oh, it’s good for my health.” Hopefully, it’s true. Do you sample? Of course. Especially the new products. We have virtually nothing written down. It’s an art, really. We don’t have recipes. That’s why I have to taste everything. I’m presuming that you’ve seen the famous I Love Lucy episode with Lucy working in the candy store. [Big laugh] People say to me all the time, “Oh, you make chocolates, like Lucy.” What are your newer products? Pretzels with peanut butter dipped in chocolate, those have become very popular. Shortbread dipped in chocolate. We’re starting to make homemade peanut brittle and divinity. What do you prefer when you’re giving something as a gift? I love to give something called Mint Cindy: It’s a melt-away mint chocolate center covered in dark chocolate.

I’m sure a lot of us fantasize about owning a candy store, but there has to be a business recipe for success. Atmosphere is huge. Hiring the right crew is important. Our owner—Brett Palmateer—really understands that investing is important and he invests in us. He grew up in this business and he passes all of his knowledge on to us. So what’s the secret of making perfect chocolates? It’s in the temperer. (Hancock led BW to an inner sanctum, where she has a series large spinning silver kettles, one each for milk, mint, white and dark chocolate.) The temperer is heated by a series of light bulbs, which keep the temperature even and the spinning creates a flow of chocolate for the dipping. Could you ruin the chocolate in a heartbeat? Oh, yeah. Chocolate is very finicky and the cooling is the most important part. That determines how it’s going to look. It took me a long time to get the hang of it. Everything has to be at a stable temperature. You don’t want the chocolate to be cloudy or have any blooms—little white spots. It needs to have a nice sheen. You must see a lot of people between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Actually, our summer season starts in April. That’s when we have to have more workers. (The current roster includes 18 names.) Is your business recession-proof? It’s been pretty steady year-round, and that’s pretty new. You can truly notice the difference. You really get a good sense for that when you’re working behind the counter.

BOISEvisitWEEKLY PICKS for more events THURSDAY MARCH 28 barrels of fun DONKEY KONG TOURNAMENT AT SPACEBAR ARCADE The 1980s brought many travesties: oversized shoulder pads, scrunchy socks, rock bands in leotards and other fashion disasters. But beyond Chernobyl, the Reagan years and the first generation of Ford Tauruses, there was the introduction of arcade games with only one difficulty level (hard to impossible) and usually only one objective (dodge/shoot everything, but also collect everything). Kids today have it easy with their 3-D graphics, video cards and 18-button controllers. If you’re game—pun intended—for some old-school 8-bit play pitted against some of Boise’s best gamers, then pen Spacebar Arcade’s Donkey Kong Tournament into your calendar for Thursday, March 28, at 7 p.m. Each contestant has five minutes to play as Mario-precursor Jumpman, as he climbs ladders and dodges barrels tossed by video game history’s most infamous ape in an attempt to save the captive proto-Princess Peach, Lady. And it’s all done with a controller consisting of a joystick and a single, infinitely mashable button. Since memories of long lines at the Donkey Kong machine in the local arcade are specific to a maturing generation, expect mature beverage options. This tournament is sponsored by Ninkasi Brewing, so while you’re sweating bullets jumping over barrels, Spacebar will be tapping the kegs for pours of its refreshing brews. T-shirts and other loot await the evening’s highest scorers. The Donkey Kong Tournament follows in the footsteps of other Spacebar events, including its Galaga Tournament and Magic: The Gathering gameplay nights, specializing in breathing life back into the hottest games of the ’80s and ’90s. But for the purposes of Donkey Kong, you only get one life, so play your best. 7 p.m. Spacebar Arcade, 200 N. Capitol Blvd., Boise, 208-918-0597,

THURSDAY MARCH 28 rooster sauce DOING BUSINESS IN CHINA “It’s better to be the head of a rooster than the tail of a dragon.” That might sound a little obscure, but think of it as a bit of Chinese wisdom, akin to “staying on top of things.” It’s also the theme of a lecture by Marshall Meyer,

University of Pennsylvania professor of management and sociology. He’ll be delivering his talk, A Tale of Two (or More) Chinas, at the Sun Valley Center in Ketchum, Thursday, March 28, at 5:30 p.m., and it will be a study of expectations. China’s entrepreneurial environment has evolved under political, social and economic circumstances that are unfamiliar to most Americans. Meyer—who is the Tsai Wan-Tsai professor of management and sociology at The Wharton School

SATURDAY MARCH 30 jeff goldblum EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY PARTY Romancing Earth girls can be a pain. Just ask Jeff Goldblum. Before he was Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park, he was Mac, a furry alien chasing human tail in the musical Earth Girls are Easy, about a troupe of lonely aliens looking for love. In the spirit of the classic ’80s film, Hot Dog Sandwich Headquarters comic book store is teaming up with the Evil Wine Show and the Red Room to hold an ’80s-themed movie and music party, featuring Earth Girls are Easy Saturday, March 30, at 7 p.m. The Earth Girls are Easy Party is a continuation of Evil Wine and Hot Dog Sandwich Headquarters’ monthly movie theme-party series. Show up in your best Back to the Future attire for the free movie screening, tunes from the golden age of hairspray and a costume contest. The winner of the contest will score prizes from the Red Room and Hot Dog Sandwich Headquarters. Music entertainment by DEVO cover band The Mongoloids and ’80s-style New Wave band Popsicle will incorporate electronic, mod subculture, disco and ’60s pop into its act, enticing ear drums with soothingly toxic sounds. Playing songs based off the New Wave movement, bands will play with synthetic instrumental sounds and time signatures. For those with a hankering for movie grub, the special during the film is a beer, a shot and a tub of popcorn for $5. 7 p.m. $3-$5. The Red Room, 1519 W. Main St., Boise,

of California, Los Angeles, and several institutions in Asia. This lecture is more than dry shoptalk, though.

youngster to start shooting original movies. Though Vimeo and YouTube provide a digital forum, perhaps more than ever, upstart filmmakers need a place to showcase their work. That’s where the second annual Boise Student International Video Festival comes in. Supporting youth education in film is the charge of the BoVi board.

d&d GAME ON: INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP GAME DAY The term “fun and games” tends to get a negative connotation—“It’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.” “He/She is just playing games.” But nothing is wrong with having a little fun in life—something that sometimes seems all too rare. Better yet, how about playing some games that actually force a little human interaction and not just hours spent staring mock explosions on a screen. Board and card games will finally get some respect Saturday, March 30, with TableTop Game Day. Geek&Sundr y, a self-proclaimed indie-geek YouTube channel; Wil Wheaton, of TV’s Star Trek: The Next Generation; and the Web series TableTop have inspired the next advance in tabletop gaming. Gamers around the countr y celebrate International TableTop Game Day on the first anniversar y of the TableTop Web series, when they congregate at event centers, restaurants and other public places to play and raise the visibility of tabletop gaming culture. Here are a few official events in the Treasure Valley: UÊ/…iÊ>ÀÀˆœÌ̽ÃÊ >viʘ`ˆ}œÊˆ˜ÊiÀˆ`ˆ>˜Ê܈Ê…>ÛiÊÈÝÊ}>“ing stations, as well as drinks and dinner specials.

at Boise State. Last year’s festival pulled in 60 entries from student filmmakers. Submissions for the 2013 festival closed earlier this month, and have been judged at random by a panel comprised of sea-


soned local filmmakers. Judges include documentarian Seth Randal, Retroscope Media and “Road to Treefort” director Zach Voss, and Nathan Snyder, who will judge submissions based on writing, cinematography,

SATURDAY MARCH 30 one-night stand-up TRACY MORGAN “I’m just trying to do karate and get females pregnant.” Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan knows the power of a one-liner. He’s earned legions of fans over his long career in stand-up, television and movies by being unafraid to say things that can simultaneously drop jaws and elicit hysterical laughter. And while his days as the resident petulant and confused celebrity on 30 Rock are over, he’s not slowing down. Morgan will hit Boise’s Egyptian Theatre for a one-night-only performance as part of his Excuse My French tour Saturday, March 30. When the announcement hit that Morgan was including the City of Trees in his comedy tour, eager fans snapped up tickets, anxious for a chance to catch an evening of “did he really just say that?” humor. Procrastinators will be happy to know that there are still some tickets left, but if you haven’t already figured it out, this isn’t a kid-friendly show. Fork out the cash for a babysitter if you have to, because sometimes grown-ups need some not-appropriate-for-younger-audiences fun. 7 p.m. $53. Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise, 208-387-1273,

After losing contact with some newfound friends at a Dave Matthews Band concert in 2011, Portland, Ore.’s, Hunter Wilson and Arianna Singleton created Family of Festivals to help music lovers connect. FOF gives festival attendees a central place to find information on upcoming music festivals—everything from Sasquatch to Bonnaroo to Coachella to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival—along with a catalog of pictures, videos and reviews to refer back to and reminisce about after the festival is over. “It’s more than the music, the atmosphere, the attractions,” the couple wrote on “It’s that perfect little world we all wish we had. It doesn’t last forever. But when you’re there, you’re in the moment.” The Family has grown exponentially since the formation of the website,, in January 2012. Now, those who sign up for free to become part of the Family are entered to win two tickets to any 2014 festival. “Though our numbers are growing rapidly, that’s not how we judge our success,” said Wilson. “It’s up to the Family to make us successful. We’ve had so much positive input from people all over the world. The sky’s the limit for us.” —Lauren Bergeson

Kids & Teens Shigeto gets sweaty at China Blue before chatting with BW.

WEEK IN TREEVIEW Last weekend, the Boise Weekly A&E team dove headfirst into Treefort Music Fest. We ate, drank, danced and got up at the ungodly hour of 10 a.m. to write all about it. While you can mull over our staff’s top Treefort moments on Page 16, we’re dedicating this space to some of the band interviews and videos we did from our Modern Hotel base camp—aka, the BW Treefortress—all of which can be found at treefort. Bright and early March 22, Death Songs’ Nick Delffs swung by the Treefortress to have a bowl of Life cereal and discuss, well, life. “I’ve just realized after I’ve almost finished my bowl that it goes soggy too fast,” noted Delffs, after dishing about relocating to Boise. “Like, immediately it was too soggy, and it’s way too sugary.” Later that afternoon, BW’s Josh Gross sat down with electronic musician Steve Marion, aka Delicate Steve. Though Marion has a delicate touch when it comes to playing the guitar, we wanted to test just how delicate it was. So we set up a game of Jenga and let the questions fly, something which quickly turned problematic. “I’m not a great multi-tasker,” Marion said. Also on March 22, BW’s Harrison Berry and Andrew Crisp took Alex “ManCub” Anderson, the Denver, Colo., indie dance musician extraordinaire, for a tour of Zoo Boise. Anderson identified ManCub’s power animal (the red panda) and demonstrated what the ManCub looks like as a dance. In the early afternoon of March 23, Seattle psychedelic folk rockers Rose Windows piled into the Treefortress to discuss how they compensated for lead singer Rabia Quazi’s absence at the band’s Neurolux performance March 22, signing to Sub Pop and just how “fucking nice” Boiseans can be. “We were walking around trying to find one thing wrong with this town, but we were like, ‘We can’t.’ Everyone’s nice; the service everywhere we go is great,” said flautist-percussionist Veronica Dye. Later that night, Detroit musician Zachary Saginaw, better known by his stage name Shigeto, wrapped audiences up in his performance at China Blue. After his sweat-drenched set, Saginaw caught up with Crisp in an alleyway off Sixth Street. Having recently dropped a new mixtape, Beats 4 Dilla, Saginaw told BW why he chose to dedicate those tracks to the late Motor City rapper J. Dilla. Before her Reef set March 23, Bay Area hip-hop luminary Kristine “K.Flay” Flaherty also stopped by Boise Weekly’s hotel-room headquarters. Flaherty talked sandwiches and Treefort 2012, before answering the question: “Is your music more popular with a male or female audience?” “You know, it’s interesting. I was talking about this with my manager recently, and most of the shows are like 50-50,” said Flaherty. Watch all these videos—including a mash-up of every band we interviewed performing Roger Miller’s “King of the Road”— and read the full interviews at —Tara Morgan

EDMOND DANTES, ETTA Ryan Peck and Andrew Stensaas are instructors at Boise Rock School, a job that requires the ability to relate well to children. Yet Etta, the debut EP from the duo’s band, Edmond Dantes, is strikingly mature. Though the group took their time germinating—nearly a year of writing and rehearsing before their first gig—the five songs on Etta still sound as if they hatched from an egg fully formed, with well-conceived production, clever lyrics and an intriguing sound. The songs have clear influences in soul and classic pop— both in their structures and the tone of Stensaas’ vocals. But beneath his silky-smooth croon is the buzz and bleep of synth and disco-beat bass lines, firmly planting the band’s flag in the realm of electro-pop. “Decade,” the first track on Etta, has clear shades of MGMT and Phoenix, if they were fronted by Hall and Oates. Synth bass buzzes as snappy drums punch through the mix. It’s a strong opening. Though the catchy melodies and production of Etta make it easy to hear any of the tracks as a single, “I Don’t Like You,” the second song, stands apart from the bunch with clever wordplay, flourishes of trumpet and a bluesy feel. Etta also features a dance remix of the song, “I Don’t Like You (China Bleu Cheese remix),” as the EP’s fifth and final track. “Electric Lights,” the third song, has a slower meter and moodier feel, with twinkles of synth beneath Stanton’s lyrics about the existential crises of barflies. Big hits of twangy guitar make the chorus a punchy delight. “No Good So Good,” the fourth track, apes much of the catchiness of “I Don’t Like You,” with slinky rhymes about the dangers of love atop a danceable beat and bluesy electric piano riffs. There is a world of difference between pop music and pop singers. Edmond Dantes is a band that isn’t afraid to embrace catchy melodies and approachable songs. The result is an instantly inviting collection of tunes with broad appeal, and not even a whiff of the saccharine sweetness that turns pop into a four-letter word. Though it’s only five songs long, Etta is still one of the best recordings from a Boise band yet this year. —Josh Gross

TREEFORT TOP 10 Boise Weekly staffers break down their favorite moments of Treefort 2013 BW STAFF Treefort is now something of a holiday that celebrates the value of live music. Bands play to packed audiences eager for more. “Happy Treefort” is even a common phrase, as if we all understand that Treefort is now a citywide celebration. And though many came down with a case of Treefort Fever (a cumulative four-day hangover), the festival showed that live music is something worth honoring. Here are Boise Weekly’s Top 10 Treefort moments of 2013:


“K.Flay” Flaherty took the stage March 23, she stopped by BW’s Treefort HQ. She sipped a can of beer on the BW couch and answered the question, “What’d you do last night?” “I made sandwiches for an hour and a half and then fell asleep. It was a mix of things, because we had some different types of cheeses. It was all a riff on grilled cheeses, some provolone, some cheddar, some pepper jack mixings, and then I did fried eggs, scrambled eggs. Because I like to cook. When I get a little drunk, I have this weird visceral need to make food for people.”


Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings were cooking the Treefort Main Stage March 22, but when Jones invited dancers from the audience to join her, she brought the evening to a full boil. Breathlessly exhorting security to allow a troupe of ladies onstage, she taught Boise a few new dance moves before one of her guests held up what appeared to be a large bag full of marijuana, at which point she shuffled the dancers offstage one by one.

At the end of The Walkmen’s set March 23 at the Main Stage, lead singer Hamilton Leithauser gripped a bottle of wine, which he tipped to his lips with an appropriate rock star swagger before arching his back and belting out the line “break out the bottles” on the band’s encore song, “All Hands and the Cook.”



BW caught up with El Ten Eleven bassist Kristian Dunn and drummer Tim Fogarty, aka, “the rocktopus,” at a serious marshmallow roasting session March 23 at The Modern Hotel with Girlfriends, Dedicated Servers, Slow Magic and Oso Negro. For anyone who’s seen the million-dollar quartet photo from Sun Records, this was Treefort’s version.

Wooden Indian Burial Ground tore up the Red Room March 23 with its high-energy garage rock. The crowd morphed from a mosh pit into a dance party and back to a mosh pit as the band made commentary like: “That song’s about surfing on acid with your dad.”


Soundchecks are almost universally boring. Unless the band soundchecking is Hillstomp.

Then you get to hear comments from the soundman like, “Where should I mic the bucket?”

TERROR PIGEON DANCE REVOLT BUSTING OUT CAPES AND CONFETTI When we thought there was no mind left to blow, along came the one-two punch of Little Ruckus and Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt at The Linen Building March 23. The bands—both made up of the same members—brought more energy to the latenight stragglers than most groups dedicate to a full room. There were American flag capes, confetti, the singer hoisted sideways by two other band members for audience members to do the limbo beneath, trading clothes with the person next to you, the entire audience getting under a parachute with a strobe light, dudes in dresses and so, so, so much more.

DAN DEACON TELLING BOISE TO TAKE A KNEE AND POINT AT THE STARS Once Dan Deacon took the Main Stage March 24, he beckoned the audience to raise their left hands to the sky, point out a star, drop to one knee and then celebrate any dissenters still standing in the crowd. All this while relating a story from J.R.R. Tolkien. While Deacon’s distorted vocals echoed over the crowd, drummers at two different kits hammered a beat that sent the audience into a frenzy. Later, Deacon had the crowd form a large circle at its center, picked out two listeners and deemed them participants in a dance contest. After a brief spell, they were to pass

the baton to someone else. Deacon told the audience he’d end with one more long song—which devolved into what one member of the audience called “the world’s friendliest mosh pit.”

THE MOMENT EVERYONE FELL IN LOVE WITH EMILY WELLS AT ONCE A classically trained violinist, Emily Wells uses a series of live loops, sample pads and acoustic drums to make rich and haunting neo-gospel. Though it ran over time, her set at Neurolux March 24 was so well-received that Wells was sent back onstage to do an encore, a nearly unheard of act on a festival timeline. The only downside was that awkward moment when hundreds of people fell head over heels in love with her at once.

TEENS TEAR DOWN THE STAGE Boise band TEENS nearly destroyed the Red Room at its performance during Treefort 2012. That made the band’s return March 24 one of the most anticipated follow-ups for everyone except Mitch Thompson, the owner of the club. “I’ve been dreading this set all week,” Thompson said. There wasn’t much to see on stage—just a wall of dancing yahoos with lights from a projector playing over their backs—but watching Thompson slowly shake his head was one of the most entertaining parts of the festival. A lesser club owner might have pulled the plug when the electrical piping was torn loose, but Thompson just grimaced and a made a checklist of what would need to be repaired in the morning. WWW.

ROGER CLYNE AND THE PEACEMAKERS, MARCH 28, REEF It’s a good thing that Roger Clyne plays guitar instead of drums because he has the timing of a broken clock. Clyne’s breakthrough album with his band, The Refreshments, was a collection of witty, major-key rock singalongs released into the maelstrom of mid-’90s grunge nihilism. While rain-swept Seattle was inspiring a nation, Clyne sang odes to the deserts of Arizona and Mexico from his Tempe, Ariz., home. “We were more of a celebration band than an angst band,” Clyne told Boise Weekly in 2010, concluding that The Refreshments were, ultimately, “good music to drink beer to.” When Clyne left his record contract behind and went back to playing rock clubs, he reorganized The Refreshments into The Peacemakers, and that’s when his fans really started to show their dedication. The band now hosts its own concert festival, Circus Mexicus. —Josh Gross 9:30 p.m., $15 adv., $17 door. Reef, 105 S. Sixth St., 208-287-9200,

In the 1990s, Hamburg, Germany’s KMFDM was credited with bringing industrial music to the mainstream alongside heavy-hitters like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry. But since its formation in 1984, the band’s sound has stood apart for its layers of electronic influences atop pure, heavy-metal rock ’n’ roll. Spanning a career of nearly 30 years and nearly as many albums, KMFDM singer and multi-instrumentalist Sascha Konietzko remains the group’s driving force. Despite a rotating cast of other players, KMFDM’s distinct sound is still characterized by pulsating synthesizers and bass with chunky riffs. While early singles like “Power” and “Juke Joint Jezebel” helped KMFDM achieve worldwide success, the February release of KMFDM’s 18th album, Kunst, proves it can still bring the noise. —Andrew Crisp With Legion Within and Chant, 8 p.m. doors, 9 p.m. show, $20-$40.

JULIA DAVIS GROWS PUBLIC ART Downtown Boise park prepares for public art overhaul CHRISTINA MARFICE Boise Philharmonic has named a new Executive Director, Sandra Culhane.

GENEROUS GRANTS AND FOUND FRAGMENTS Boise Art Museum announced March 19 that it has received a $150,000 grant from the Laura Moore Cunningham Foundation, which will help the museum present three new exhibitions over the next three years. “This grant will ensure that people in our community have access to high caliber works of art that would not otherwise be available to them in Idaho,” said BAM Executive Director Melanie Fales. The World Stage by artist Kehinde Wiley will run June 11 through Oct. 27 and showcase portraits of people from differing religious backgrounds in Israel. Folding Paper: The Infinite Possibilities of Origami, will run Oct.24, 2015, through Jan. 17, 2016, and will highlight origami from the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles and the nonprofit International Arts and Artists organization in Washington, D.C. The third exhibit has yet to be announced. Speaking of big announcements, Boise Philharmonic disclosed that its new executive director, Sandra Culhane, will take the reins Wednesday, May 1. In an interview with BW, Interim Executive Director Tony Boatman described the Phil’s financial woes and his attempts to put the organization back on course. The Phil has been searching for a director since Tom Bennett’s resignation Aug. 16, 2012. Culhane has served as executive director of the Billings Symphony Orchestra in Billings, Mont., since 2005, following work as orchestra operations manager of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Moving from Boise’s future to its past, the Sesqui-Shop storefront is looking for help building April’s exhibit. Preservation Idaho has issued a call for fragments from Boise’s lost buildings, such as loose bricks from the historic Eastman Building or a rusting door knob from the original Boise City Hall. Remnants of Boise will showcase those pieces to help tell the story of Boise over the last 150 years. “We are looking for items from buildings in Boise that are no longer standing, such as sandstone, gargoyles, carved beams, hardware like door knobs, faucets, light fixtures, windows, landscape elements, signs,” according to Preservation Idaho. These bits of “architectural ephemera” will reveal the missing pieces of Boise’s skyline. Those interested should contact Amy Pence-Brown with Preservation Idaho at or the Sesqui-Shop at 208-433-5670. Contributions will be part of the exhibition, which opens First Thursday, April 4.

Over the last century, downtown Boise’s fields and orchards have given way to grids of streets and towering buildings as Idaho’s capital city has taken shape. Now, one of the Treasure Valley’s first agricultural areas, Julia Davis Park, is being used to tell the story of the city’s farming history, which made possible Boise’s growth into the thriving metropolis it is today. In 1862, brothers Tom and Frank Davis headed west from Ohio, hoping to strike gold in Idaho. Tom purchased and developed thousands of acres of agricultural property in the Boise area and helped map out a blueprint of the city. When Tom’s wife, Julia, passed away in 1907, he deeded the 89-acre Julia Davis Regional Park to the city in her memory. Now, with the help of the Julia Davis Park - Second Century Coalition—a volunteer organization led by Diane Myklegard, a descendant of Tom and Julia Davis—the park will be home to a series of public art installations designed to celebrate its history. “When I first started working for the city, I didn’t really know who Julia Davis was,” said Karen Bubb, public arts manager at the Boise City Department of Arts and History. “I feel like over time, we’ve added things that tell that story to the public so they can have a better sense of what’s happened to make the park.” The 2012 addition of the Agriculture Pavilion was the first step in a series of changes slated for Julia Davis Park. Other artistic additions include a Grand Plaza, a History Walk and a series of small towers, called bollards, which will highlight the city’s historic landmarks. Local artist Ward Hooper has been involved in the planning and design process for many of the new elements. Hooper said the designs incorporate park-wide agricultural themes, with an emphasis on commemorating the apple orchard that once occupied the park. “The bollards are representative of tree trunks. They’re on a grid similar to what an orchard would be,” said Hooper. “These bollards come up out of the ground and stand about 3 feet tall, and on top of them, you’ll be able to see a picture of a past building that used to exist—such as the Natatorium or the old Ada County Courthouse. It’ll tell a little bit about the city’s beginning and growth.”

Hooper also designed a bronze medallion that will serve as the centerpiece of the Grand Plaza, which is intended to create a hub between the Rose Garden and Zoo Boise. “It’s envisioned to be halfway between what Julia Davis Park is now and what the Grove is—it’s a place for people to meet and have events and to celebrate the history of the beginning of the city,” said Hooper. “The center would be the most polished part of a big courtyard starting with the bronze, which represents a seed of the city. It ripples out from there with paths representing roots of the tree. There’s another pathway called the History Walk that will branch off toward the river. That will be lined with little nodes shaped like leaves, which will tell a story starting with the Davis family and all these important agricul-

Ward Hooper helped design art installations that will pay tribute to the history of Julia Davis Park and the city.

tural things that the city was built on.” The Agriculture Pavilion will grow as well. New public art pieces are planned to be added to the pavilion, including a laseretched wheat field in the building’s gable, picnic tabletops designed by area students and a 7-foot-tall, three-dimensional map of the Gem State, conceived and designed by metalworker Irene Deely. “We’re taking satellite images to make a three-dimensional, topographical image of the map of Idaho. I’ll go in and embellish that to make some of the different areas that are more well-known kind

of accentuated. … The map invites people to come in and move their hands over the mountains and across the rivers,” said Deely. With the exception of one city-funded piece in the Cancer Survivors’ Plaza in the east end of Julia Davis, all of the planned art projects will be supported by grants and donations; the Second Century Coalition is soliciting contributions independent of the city. Though total funding needs won’t be known until designs are finalized, project coordinator Ben Gin said plans are moving forward. “The Grand Plaza and the Agriculture Pavilion are considered Phase One. Phase One has been under way for the last three or four years and will probably be completed in the next two,” Gin said. “For the time being, I think Phase One is really coming together pretty well. We’re over halfway done with our fundraising needs for Phase One. It’s definitely a sliding timeline based on incoming funds.” Gin hopes to begin installation of the Idaho map in October. The timeline for construction of the Plaza, History Walk and bollards is still in the air. “We won’t see any major construction projects like the restroom and pavilion were last year,” said Toby Norton, city parks development project manager. “We’re advancing on plans. Depending on how funding goes for that, we would like to be in construction by the end of summer or fall.” For those involved in the park’s facelift, public art is a natural part of Julia Davis’ continuing growth and development. “All the artwork is really highly integrated into the structures and the landscape. It’s really meant to be part of the whole park and not something that stands alone,” said Bubb. “We see Julia Davis as the cultural-type park. It has an art museum and a history museum and the zoo, so this ties in very nicely with that, in contrast to something like Ann Morrison Park, which is more of a sports field-type park,” added Norton. “We see it as a cultural hub, so adding art to that is obviously a good fit.” To Hooper, these additions are a way to celebrate the Davis family, the park and its history, which have all helped build Boise into the city it has become. “This is a storytelling opportunity,” Hooper said. “It’s a story that’s never really been told in one place. People can come and stand on the piece of property that the city started from and have the whole story told in a cool, interactive and artistic way. As the city grows, the park needs to grow with it.”

Rebecca Rusch shows off her Idaho.

BEGINNINGS AND ENDINGS Spring is a time of transition—and not just when it comes to weather. After Lululemon recently closed up shop in downtown Boise, another outdoors-oriented retailer is heading out. Helly Hansen owner Rachel Link is closing her BODO shop by the end of April. Link said the decision to close came not because the store isn’t holding its own, but because of a change in the relationship between Helly Hansen and its licensees. Link received a letter several months ago stating that Helly Hansen was terminating it agreements with all businesses that licensed the right to use the Helly Hansen name. Link said she didn’t want to take on the cost of rebranding her business—which has been in BODO for more than six years—and decided to close the doors and pursue other professional opportunities. And while it’s a loss to the downtown Boise business community, it means the chance at some deals as the store clears out its inventory. Merchandise is discounted by 20-50 percent, and Link said there may be bigger sales as closing day approaches. Moving from endings to beginnings, Sun Valley’s own champion mountain biker Rebecca Rusch, aka the Queen of Pain, is starting her own 100-mile gravel race in September. The race will be a benefit for the Wood River Bike Coalition, and World Bicycle Relief and take racers through some of central Idaho’s best scenery. But here’s the catch: The ride isn’t really open to the public—yet. The inaugural Rebecca’s Private Idaho will be for industry pros only, although several public entry spots will be awarded via the race’s Facebook and Twitter pages. Want to be one of the lucky few who gets to ride along? Check out the race website at If you’re looking for more of a sure-bet bike ride, registration for the 16th annual Boise to Idaho City Mountain Bike Tour is now open. The two-day supported ride is set for Saturday, June 15-Sunday, June 16. Advanced registration is $100 for both days or $80 for one, but jumps to $120 for two-day or $100 for one-day after Friday, May 31. Registration will be open online through Friday, June 14.

BEERGUZZLER/DRINK FROM THE FARMHOUSE In an age when limited sanitation resulted in suspect water supplies, farmhouse ales were brewed to provide a safer alternative for thirsty field workers. Originating in rural Belgium, they were typically low in alcohol and designed to refresh on a hot summer day. This week’s trio combines a nice level of complexity with an easydrinking style. THE COMMONS BREWERY URBAN FARMHOUSE ALE A hazy, lemon yellow in the glass, this brew is topped by a paper-white head that collapses quickly but leaves a nice lacing. The fruity nose is colored by soft hops and coriander, while the floral palate is marked by bright citrus and apricot with a touch of white pepper. Light carbonation makes this a quaffable and refreshing ale from this Portland, Ore.-based brewery. It comes in a large 750 ml. bottle perfect for sharing. HOF TEN DORMAAL BLOND This unfiltered brew pours a cloudy, dark straw color with an amazingly persistent three-finger head the color and consistency of sea foam. As Matt, the Boise Co-op Beer Guy, put it, the “nose is a study in rustic complexity.” You get a mix of yeasty grain, citrus, orchard fruit, light hops and smooth malt. The beer is both rich and refreshing on the palate with creamy green apple, fresh bread and just a hint of spicy orange zest on the deliciously dry finish. This is an outstanding Belgian farmhouse ale. MIKKELLER/STILLWATER TWO GYPSIES OUR SIDE This collaboration between two innovative gypsy brewers, Mikkel Borg Bjergson and Brian Strumke, was created at Maryland’s Dog Brewing. It’s a golden pour with an explosive, off-white, porous head that tops the glass but collapses quickly. You get a touch of herb and spice on the nose along with resiny hops and citrus. This is definitely the most hop-driven of the trio with a nice core of yeasty citrus fruit and a clean, dry finish. This beer is a deliciously unique take on the style. —David Kirkpatrick

OUT OF THE HAT AND INTO THE POT Rabbit is a healthy and sustainable meat, so why are we so averse to eating it? RANDY KING My wife won’t let me raise rabbits as food in the back yard. She’s of the opinion that it will be traumatic for her and our children to nurture the little fluff balls and then slaughter them for dinner. She definitely has a point; rabbits are a cultural phenomenon. From the Easter Bunny to Thumper to Peter Rabbit to Bugs Bunny, rabbits are seen as cute and cuddly pets, not supper. Not that rabbits don’t make excellent table fare. They are lean and healthy white meat. According to, rabbit has 800 calories per pound of meat, less fat than chicken or pork, and about half the cholesterol of chicken or pork. Rabbit is one of the most sustainable and sanitary meats available on the market and is often referred to as “the other, other white meat.” Daren Withers, owner of The Lucky Four Farm in Marsing, is currently raising about 30 adult rabbits and selling them monthly to a company in Washington for high-end pet food. He would prefer his meat go to people, but said he’s unable to sell his rabbit meat to consumers. “Idaho is a really difficult place to process rabbits for human consumption. … It considers rabbits the same as wild game meat,” said Withers. “They won’t let me process my rabbits for the same reason that they won’t let me shoot a deer and sell it to you.” Withers is referring to the ban on the commercial sale of wild-hunted game meat laid down in the early 20th century. These laws are what protect deer, ducks and other game animals from being shot and sold on the open market. Because domestic rabbits are still classified as a game animal, Withers is AD AM unable to RO SE NL UN sell his meat D directly to the public. “If I had

the time and the knowledge, I would like to change that law. Rabbits are a domestic animal,” he said. Withers can, however, sell rabbits “on the hoof” to meat consumers, they just have to do the killing and butchering themselves. For those whose families don’t object, raising rabbits is fairly easy—a small pen, a grow light and some food is about all it takes for a successful operation. Books and other materials are readily available for those who seek them out. According to Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City and the forthcoming book Gone Feral, “Rabbits are the new chickens” for urban growers. They are quiet, too, which is a bonus. Chef Kirt Martin, owner of the Snake River Grill in Hagerman, raises rabbits on his property near the Snake River. “I raise rabbits for the meat,” Martin said during a meeting that started with a smoked sturgeon sampling and ended with a homecured bacon tasting. “They taste like chickens used to when I was a kid.” Martin annually raises a brood of about 24 meat rabbits that he braises down into carnitas and then bags and freezes for his family. He even uses salad scraps from the

restaurant as rabbit food. “We just have a little bucket I take home each day and feed my rabbits with, you know, little lettuce ends and carrot tops,” he said. “It’s not economical, I just love the taste.” But not all rabbit-raising is cream and butter. My cousin John Smith bought one of his children a breeding pair of Holland Lop rabbits to show at 4-H events. The goal was to sell the young rabbits as pets or food and the money would subsidize the care of the animals. Unfortunately, his rabbits did do what rabbits do, and made a large number of babies. But the mothers ignored them and then ate them. (This is, apparently, a common occurrence among rabbits.) So the brood that they were hoping to start is now lacking in the baby department. “I’m into this now a couple hundred dollars; ain’t no way we are making our money back,” Smith said. But being hopeful with rabbits and breeding is understandable—they really are remarkable meat-makers. According to the website, a single rabbit doe can produce 300 pounds of meat in a single year. “The best commercial does can produce 15 or 16 kits per litter, which grow out to five pounds by 10 weeks of age,” the website states. Withers raises and breeds New Zealand white rabbits. “One of the other cool things is their food-conversion rate: It is only about three pounds of feed per one pound of rabbit,” Withers said. Compare that to beef, which has a conversion ratio of 9-to-1, and you can see the economics of rabbit production. Cheap to feed, low space impact and healthy meat. Idaho meat rabbit raisers even have their own club, the Idaho Meat Rabbit Growers Association, The club offers online forums that help with growing, breeding and selling rabbits. It also lists contact information for meat rabbit growers. I’m thinking the best bet for convincing my wife to let me raise rabbits is accurate naming of the creatures. Instead of Fluffy and Thumper, I’ll go for more classic French names like Pate and Stew. So, what do you say, hon?

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): I was too lazy to write your horoscope this week, so I went to a website that hawks bumper stickers and copied a few of their slogans to use as your “advice.” Here you go. 1. Never follow a rule off a cliff. 2. Have the courage to honor your peculiarities. 3. It’s never too late to have a rebellious adolescence. 4. Criticize by creating. 5. Never make anything simple and efficient when it can be elaborate and wonderful. 6. Complex problems have simple, easy-tounderstand, morally clear, wrong answers. April Fool! I lied. I wasn’t lazy at all. I worked hard to ensure that all the suggestions I just provided are in strict accordance with the astrological gestalt. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It’s a perfect time to watch the cult classic film Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh Eating, Hellbound, Zombified Living Dead. It will provide you with just the right inspiration as you deal with your own problems. April Fool! I lied. Don’t you dare watch any horror movies. You’re in a phase when you can make dramatic progress in transforming longstanding dilemmas—but only if you surround yourself with positive, uplifting influences. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): The coming week will be an excellent time to wash dishes, clean bathrooms, scrub floors, vacuum carpets, wash windows, do laundry and clean the refrigerator. The more drudge work you do, the better you’ll feel. April Fool! I lied. The truth is, you now have astrological license to minimize your participation in boring tasks like the ones I named. It’s high time for you to seek out the most interesting work and play possible. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You know what would be a really cool prank to pull off this April Fool’s Day? Arrange to have rubber tires airlifted into a dormant volcano, then set them on fire. Smoke will pour out the top. Everyone who lives nearby will think the volcano is getting ready to explode. Don’t forget to videotape the event for YouTube. Later, when you reveal the hoax, your video will go viral and you’ll become a celebrity. April Fool! I don’t really think you should try this prank. It’s old hat. Back in 1974, a guy named Porky Bickar did it to Alaska’s Mt. Edgecumbe. Here’s my real oracle for you: It is a good time to boost your visibility by doing something funny. Or to build your brand by being mischievous. Or to demonstrate your power by showing off your sense of humor.

30 | MARCH 27 – APRIL 2, 2013 | BOISEweekly C L A S S I F I E D S

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In the animated TV show The Simpsons, 10-year-old Bart is constantly getting into trouble because of the monkey business he loves to perpetrate. His teachers punish him by compelling him to write corrective declarations on the classroom blackboard. It so happens that some of those apologetic statements should be coming out of your mouth in the coming week, Leo. They include the following: “I will not strut around like I own the place. I will not claim that I am deliciously saucy. I will not instigate revolution. I will not trade pants with others. I will not carve gods. I will not Xerox my butt. I will not scream for ice cream.” April Fool! I lied. The truth is, you should consider doing things like that. And don’t apologize. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The sport of ferret legging is an endurance contest. Participants vie to determine who can last longest as a live ferret runs loose inside their pants. The current record is five hours and 26 minutes, held by a retired British miner. But I predict that a Virgo will soon break that mark. Could it be you? April Fool! I misled you. I don’t really think you should put a ferret in your pants, not even to win a contest. It is possible, however, that there will soon be a pleasurable commotion happening in the area below your waist. And I suspect that you will handle it pretty well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Risk being a crazed fool for love, Libra. Get as wild and extreme as you’ve ever been if it helps you rustle up the closeness you’re hungry for. Get down on your knees and beg, or climb a tree with a megaphone and profess your passion. April Fool! I was exaggerating a little. It’s true that now is an excellent time to be aggressive about going after the intimate connection you want. But I suggest you accomplish that by being ingenious and imaginative rather than crazy and extreme. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): British comedy team Monty Python did a sketch in which a policeman apprehends a criminal. The bad guy says, “Yes, I did it, but society is to blame.” And the cop says, “Right! We’ll arrest them instead.” You should adopt this attitude, Scorpio. Blame everyone else but yourself for your problems and flaws. April Fool! I lied. In fact, the truth is the opposite of what I said. It’s time to take more responsibility for your actions. Bravely accept the consequences of what you’ve done—with your sense of humor fully engaged and a lot of compassion for yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Banzai skydiving is a step beyond ordinary skydiving. To do it, you hurl your folded-up parachute out of the airplane, wait a while, and

then leap into mid-air yourself. If all goes well, you free fall in the direction of your parachute and catch up to it. Once you grab it, you strap it on and open the chute, ideally before you hit the earth. This is the kind of beyond-ballsy activity that would be perfect for you right now. April Fool! In truth, I don’t recommend banzai skydiving now or ever. Plain old skydiving is fine, though. The same principle applies in relation to any adventurousness you’re considering: Push yourself, yes, but not to an absurd degree. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Should you relocate to Kazakhstan and grow sunflowers? Is it time to think about getting a job in Uruguay and living there for the next 10 years? Can you see yourself building your dream home in Morocco on a bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean? I suggest you spend some quality time thinking way, way outside the box about where you belong on this Earth. April Fool! I went a bit overboard in my recommendations. It is true that you should brainstorm about the kind of home you want to create and enjoy in the future. But that probably means revising and refining your current situation rather than leaving it all behind and starting over. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your brain has a bigger capacity than you realize. According to professor of psychology Paul Reber, it can hold the equivalent of 3 million hours’ worth of television shows. As I’m sure you know, your brain is not even close to being full of that much data. And in accordance with the current astrological omens, I suggest you cram in as much new material as possible. April Fool! I told you a half-truth. While it’s correct that now is an excellent time to pour more stuff into your brain, you should be highly discerning about what you allow in there. Seek out the richest ideas, the most stimulating information, the best stories. Avoid trivial crap. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): July 2012 was a sad time in the history of mythic creatures. The National Ocean Service, a U.S. government agency, made a formal proclamation that there are no such things as mermaids. But I predict those stuffy know-it-alls will soon get a big shock, when a Piscean scientist presents evidence that mermaids are indeed real. April Fool! I was exaggerating. I don’t really foresee the discovery of a flesh-and-blood mermaid—by a Pisces or anyone else. I do, however, suspect that your tribe is now highly adept at extracting useful revelations and inspirations from dreams, visions, and fantasies, including at least one that involves a coven of Buddhist Ninja clown mermaids.

LOST GREY MALE CAT $500 reward. Our cat “Owen” has gone missing. He is a 3 years old, neutered, male. He is completely grey and has long hair and yellow eyes. He had a plaid patterned collar on when he was last seen with his information and he is microchipped. His collar isn’t the easiest to see because he is so fury. He was last seen on March 15th. If you have any information good or bad please contact Sara at 284-8819. If you live in the Jordan’s Landing neighborhood off Collister please check your sheds, trailers or garages to see if he could be stuck somewhere. All help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
