NOTE THE BEST OF THE BEST Like most kids of my generation, born in the late-’70s and early-’80s, I was reared on marketing; slurping down breakfast cereal in a miasma of slogans and jingles was the highlight of my week. Chances are, if we’re about the same age, it was the highlight of your week, too. The impact of all that exposure has been the subject of psycho-social hand-wringing for as long as I can remember, but one beneﬁt of a childhood spent swallowing “calls to action” from the boob tube is that we info-agers have some of the most highly attuned bullshit detectors of all time—at least when it comes to advertising. I can remember, at age 7 or so, watching a commercial for “the best tasting” instant coffee, followed by another claiming to be the “richest in ﬂavor.” I asked my mom how that could be, and she was straight up about it: “They’re pretty much the same.” Because of that experience, whenever I hear something is “the best” anything, the bullshit detector starts going. It’s just that things held up as such so rarely are. One of those rare cases, of course, is Boise Weekly’s annual Best of Boise. Not only is BW’s Best of Boise the original best of Boise, it’s the best best of Boise among Boise best ofs. Why? Because Boiseans are keen judges of character and they take their town seriously. So do we. That’s why we’re making sure voters have as long as possible to pore through the meticulously curated categories and record their opinions. Voting opens for the 2013 Best of Boise Wednesday, July 24, and will run through midnight, Sunday, Sept. 1. You’ll have to be patient, though—winners won’t be announced until the Wednesday, Sept. 25, edition of BW. For those who voted last year and found the system cumbersome, rest assured; this year we’re moving the contest back to our own website. To vote, you just need to be a registered member on boiseweekly.com and put your mouseclicking skills to use. Easy.

WORSE THAN SNOWDEN? (Hint: it’s a long list) “Cope, wheres you gonna get around to callin’ that Eddy Snowden what a no-count coward snake-in-the-grass back-stabbin’ traitor what he is!?” That was Red, of course. He’d stomped in all angry and resentful that I had let weeks slip by without writing anything about that “Bennydick Arnold what expoured our good ol’ ‘Merican secrets out f’r the whole world t’ gawk at.” Curiously, Red stomped in just minutes after Badger Bob had stomped out, also angry and resentful. Bob, however, had an entirely different slant on the Edward Snowden affair. “Cope, this is your chance to stick up for an authentic American hero, a man willing to sacriﬁce himself on the alter of truth and transparency. Can’t you see that, you f***ing idiot? Edward Snowden has handed us an opportunity to examine the principles and values necessary for a democracy to survive. Why don’t you get off your lard a** and write something that means something!?” They both, in their separate ways, did indeed make me feel a tad guilty for ignoring the Snowden story and its ramiﬁcations. But as I explained to them in turn, “Sorry, Bob/Red. I know in my heart that I should be addressing this important matter. But the truth is, I have ambiguous feelings about the whole thing.” Bob said, “That’s your f***ing problem, Cope. You’re ambiguous about everything, you fatuous twit!” Red said, “This ain’t no time f’r amphibylous feelin’s, Cope. The U.S. of A.’s got its neck on the chomping block if’n we can’t spy on whosever needs spyin’ on without ever’body knowin’ we’re spyin’ on ’em!” But neither of them could talk me down from the fence I straddled. Certainly, I agreed with Bob that a democracy can survive only so much secrecy, the invasion of only so much privacy, the violation of only so many basic liberties. And, initially, I had to admire the sacriﬁce Edward Snowden had made in exposing the NSA’s policies. On the other hand, I shared Red’s fear that Snowden might well have damaged the nation’s security in a world changing so rapidly that even the experts are in a constant frenzy just to grasp what perils the future might hold. I also agree that, after that ﬁrst ﬂush of what appeared to be selﬂess sacriﬁce, Snowden has behaved rather like a naughty little boy, looking for a momma to hide behind. Taken all together, though, it’s a wash. While I don’t like the idea of having my correspondence gone over by some huge intelligence agency’s version of cadaver-snifﬁng dogs, nothing has shown me—yet—that the NSA has used any of the information it has gathered to the detriment of any citizen who wasn’t up to something we are damn glad he got caught being up to. In other words, did Snowden do us any favors by sharing with us secrets which, had they not been shared with WWW. B OISEWEEKLY.C O M
us, might one day save some lives? So I may not know what to make of the man, but that’s not to say he isn’t useful as a standard to put some things in perspective. I put together a list I call the “Who’s Worse Than Edward Snowden?” registry, and the individuals on it are those who, in my estimation, have done even more harm to America than this whistle-blowing runaway. The idea traces to a Democrat congressman from Georgia, Hank Johnson. Asked what he thought about Supreme Court chair-ﬁller Clarence Thomas’ vote to neuter the Voting Rights Act, Rep. Johnson said, “Comparing it to Snowden, I’d say the offense is worse.” Absolutely! thought I, and by extension, that makes four other members of the Supreme Court equally worse than Snowden. (Frankly, we don’t even need to consider their ruling on the Voting Rights Act; the bucket of shit they poured over America with the Citizens United decision would have ensured them a place on “Who’s Worse Than Edward Snowden?” Naturally, I’ve added Donald Trump to the list, and not solely because he was so quick to suggest Snowden should be executed. For years, I’ve felt that Trump’s big, stupid, ﬂapping mouth degraded and cheapened the experience of being an American, reminding us there are many ways to do harm to a nation and its people. John Boehner was one of the ﬁrst listed, and not for calling Snowden a traitor. Many have called Snowden a traitor, but Boehner went on to say Snowden has “put Americans at risk.” Maybe true, maybe not. But one thing’s for certain: As the Obstructionist-inChief for the GOP, Boehner has put more Americans at risk than Snowden could with a thousand leaks. Of course, I put Bush (George W.) and Cheney (that Dick) on the list. Really, when it comes to harming America, Snowden can’t hold a candle to those two. And at least, when Snowden did his damage, thousands and thousands of people didn’t get killed in the process. Oh, the registry grows even as I write. When you think about it, it’s a wonderment that America has survived the combined abuse at the hands of Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, the Koch brothers, the Senate sumphole that answers to the name “Mitch McConnell”... so many, many more. However, one name that has resurfaced as this story unfolded will not make the list— Daniel Ellsberg. Ellsberg has compared Snowden to himself, but I can’t help but see an enormous difference between exposing a huge, ambiguous secret— as Snowden did with the NSA—and exposing a huge, murderous lie, as Ellsberg did with the Pentagon Papers. And is it not relevant that Ellsberg hasn’t spent the rest of his life bouncing from port to port, trying to avoid the consequences of what he did?

INDICATOR SPECIES Lessons learned from the road It’s full-on summer here in Sawtooth Valley. Highway 75 is crowded with supersized motorhomes, giant pickups towing ﬂatbeds full of four-wheelers and jet skis, herds of deaf motorcyclists and the occasional bicyclist hovering between fog line and barrow pit, hoping his bike helmet will protect his skull from the extended mirror of the F-250 that’s closing on him at 85 mph. You can tell a lot about the weather and the economy in Southern Idaho and Utah from the sorts of people migrating by these days. Six or seven years ago, Highway 75 was crowded with single 20-year-old males in new pickups. They indicated that a young man could go from high school to restaurant or hotel or call center work, and in two years, qualify for a loan for a four-door Cummins-powered Dodge 2500 with a tonneau cover and Truck Nutz. He could ﬁll the truck with fuel and drive from Boise to Sun Valley to Stanley to Boise, all in a day, exploring the wilderness and maybe having a burger and fries along the way. Then, one September morning, the on-theprowl 20-year-old males were gone. Disappeared. Vamoosed. I ﬁgured some catastrophe had happened. Hormonal disruption of mating behavior caused by the outgassing of sunexposed pickup dashes was my ﬁrst theory. My second theory was that a Great Recession was under way. When the Idaho Statesman downsized and devoted most of its remaining space to foreclosure notices and trustees’ sales, it indicated a lot of young men had lost their jobs and traded their pickups for used Nissan Sentras. Others had gone to college and taken on debt that could have bought two or three pickups—a practice a bit like signing a counter check at a casino after you’ve lost your stake. Some had decided that $4-plus diesel made it better to just stay home and get their wilderness experience with the monkeys in Zoo Boise. In these days of relative plenty, the big pickups are back, but they’re not driven by young single men anymore. They’re driven by young family men. Their MegaCabs and SuperCrews are chock-full of screaming children, and their short beds are full of coolers, bicycles and bungeed-down ﬂoat toys. They indicate that federal military and security spending have boosted the Utah economy, and if you don’t believe me, you should check the license plates in the parking lots at Redﬁsh Lake. We’re also seeing lots of big guys on fulldress Harley Fat Boys. They indicate that pets and pet owners aren’t the only things that increasingly resemble each other as they age. The motorhomes towing Audis indicate the Great Recession hasn’t impoverished equally. New U.S. Forest Service and Idaho Fish and Game trucks indicate that these agencies are happier buying new equipment than hiring ﬁeld personnel. A line of top-down Mercedes and Porsches indicates that it’s nearly 100 degrees in Sun Valley. Log trucks laden with

silvery beetle-killed tree trunks indicate that our summers are getting a little longer and dryer, and that those 100-degree days aren’t always going to stay outside the valley walls. Hummers, of which we used to see bunches, are gone, replaced by the plus-sized motorhomes as the best indication of wretched excess and conspicuous consumption. But I know where they went. Last December, when nighttime temperatures in Sawtooth Valley were hitting minus-25 and the lack of vehicles was indicating that the rest of Idaho had succumbed to a Zombie Apocalypse, Julie and I decided to go someplace warm with a beach. We ﬂew to Panama City, Panama, determined to come back when the days were getting longer and the sun was above the southern horizon. It was a shock. Panama City is a milessquare sheaf of high-rises, rising like a mirrored Oz out of an emerald jungle. What we had thought would be a low-key beach vacation was an intense urban experience, marked by budget-blowing restaurants, wine bars, giant malls, yacht marinas and, at the far edge of their southern range, Hummers. The local tourist newspaper was full of ads from banks, which said, in effect: “Tired of your greedy government taxing your money? We will help you establish a Panamanian investment plan that will protect your wealth from seizure by tax authorities and other parasites. Owners of gold coins will be able to come into our bank every day, open their safety deposit boxes and run their ﬁngers through their tangible wealth.” Condos in the 70-ﬂoor Trump Tower Panama were starting at $267,000, with no property taxes for 18 years. Hummers were ubiquitous, driven by rich expatriate Americans or their third or fourth wives. We talked to a few. One bragged he had been there six years and hadn’t learned a word of Spanish. Julie and I ﬁt the proﬁle—a beautiful young woman accompanying a grouchy silverhaired old fart in a Hawaiian shirt, who had a beltline heading for his armpits. The local Panamanians took one look at us and knew who and what we were. Short of renting a Hummer, we could do nothing to make the picture more complete. What we indicated was that the United States was losing some of its less pleasant citizens to Panama. It didn’t seem as if the non-bankers among the Panamanians were all that happy about it. We were glad to get home to Sawtooth Valley at the end of January, and glad that our career as an indicator species had been short. We had experienced an object lesson in stereotyping, and we had been the objects. I resolved to look at the people traveling Highway 75 as real human beings, each with his or her own story, no matter what they were driving. Take away the month of July, and I’ve managed to do just that. WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M

CCDC’S $1.9 MILLION PARKING GARAGE GAMBLE
Chris and Sue Anderson of, Oroﬁno, recently received a call from the USAF chief of staff.
AIR FORCE TOP BRASS CONTACTS IDAHO FAMILY REGARDING MYSTERY OVER DAUGHTER’S DEATH
Agency is counting on more automation, less staff to increase revenue ANDREW CRISP Boise’s downtown parking garages haven’t changed much since the 1980s. Parking attendant Brandon Johnson says the equipment is older than he is. “They literally don’t make the parts for that machine any more,” he said, pointing to an aged piece of payment processing equipment—one of the many moving parts that keep the garage humming. “It’s jerry-rig, jerry-rig, jerry-rig.” Johnson admits the Downtown Public Parking System, a network of garages with more than 2,500 stalls owned and administered by the Capital City Development Corporation, could use an overhaul. But Johnson’s fellow parking attendants said the bottom line of the $1.9 million being spent to upgrade the garages to automation, including ATM-like kiosks replacing traditional booths, will mean that some of the attendants will be out of a job. “[CCDC] said the new system is designed to work with ‘minimal staff’; that was their term,” said Johnson. Johnson’s not too worried—he starts a new job (with a raise) at Cabela’s soon. “A couple of people were worried, but they said... [some] people gotta stay around to keep the machines running,” said Johnson. “It’ll be a change for those sticking around.” A number of parking attendants, including one who said he’d worked with DPPS for seven years, said they wouldn’t talk on the record regarding the automation. Another cited concern his job would be in jeopardy if he commented on the plan. Maggie Lee—an attendant at the Myrtle Street Garage and a parking system employee since April 2012—said she’s not as concerned, mainly because she already holds down a second job. “But a lot of other people don’t, and they’ve been here 10 years,” said Lee. “They don’t know what else to do, you know?” If all goes according to plan, by spring 2014 CCDC will do away with parking attendant booths entirely, replacing them with a machine similar to an ATM, built by international autoWWW.

mated systems ﬁrm Scheidt & Bachmann. Max Clark, CCDC’s Parking and Facilities director, sold the urban renewal agency’s commissioners on the $1.9 million revamp and replacement of the garage payment system, creatively dubbed PARCS (Parking Access Revenue Control System), at the board’s June 10 meeting. Rather than spend $900,000 to replace 1980s hardware, held together with “duct tape and baling wire,” Clark said CCDC should invest $1.9 million to fully automate the system. Clark told BW that a smaller staff will work not in attendant booths, but on foot, roving the garages as so-called “parking ambassadors.” Stafﬁng will likely drop from 35 fulltime employees to approximately 15-20. “For the ﬁrst year, there’s virtually no reduction,” said Troy Harris, DPPS general manager. “Then we’ll look at phased reductions.” Clark told BW that he wants to avoid a scenario of simply “throwing up the machines, putting up a few signs and hoping that the customers get it.” In the ﬁrst year, budget savings ($99,540) and “revenue enhancements” in the form of increased garage use ($98,839), should save a combined $198,379, according to Clark. He estimated bigger savings in the second year ($296,489) and each of the following years ($346,758). The return on investment, according to Clark, is three and a half years. “The reality is, the cashier sits in a booth eight hours a day,” said Clark. “They’re busy for about two hours a day, and for six hours a day, they’re sitting there reading a book, listening to an iPod or doing their homework.” Once PARCS is installed, the garages will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Currently, much of the system doesn’t open on Sundays. While many motorists choose free on-street parking, Clark said that even those drivers who might want to choose a garage can’t because they’re unusable without an at-
tendant in the booth. For example, Clark said, the Eastman Garage could be open for business on Sundays with the new PARCs system. “We could staff it, but I was losing $65,000 a year trying to staff it on Sundays. When it’s automated, it will be available 24/7,” he said. With the new system, drivers will be prompted to walk up to one of six electronic machines located around the garage and pay for their time before hopping in their car. “When a customer sits in the car and pays a cashier, that transaction takes 30-45 seconds. But, Harris said, with the PARCS system customers can exit in as little as ﬁve seconds. “You’re not sitting down creeping through a queue for 45 minutes, in your car, burning fuel,” said Clark. “The idea is you pay for your parking; you get 20 minutes to get out, and 98 percent of the time you’re going to make it out in 20 minutes.” Parking ambassadors will assist customers with the machines and, equipped with smartphones, they’ll be alerted to problems with equipment by an attendant working in a round-the-clock parking ofﬁce. Harris said the upgrade will also soon help motorists determine the best garage to park in, sending out up-to-the-minute data on the number of stalls available at each location. “The equipment will give real-time occupancy counts for each garage,” he said. “We’ll be looking at installing some new signage over the next couple of years. Imagine driving down Main Street and you’ll see that the Eastman Garage will have 300 stalls available.” Once installed, the system will mean less down time for parking attendants like Johnson and Lee. Until then, during the slow periods, Lee reads, while Johnson works on his skills playing video games on his new laptop. It’s policy to let staff ﬁnd things to do. “They allow that,” said Johnson, “because they learned that when you don’t let the employees do anything, they go stir crazy.”
Chris Anderson said he and his wife, Sue, haven’t gotten the answers they deserve, but their plight has received attention from the United States Air Force top brass. “Guess who I just got off the line with? Gen. Mark Welsh, the chief of staff of the Air Force,” said Anderson, adding that inquiries from Boise Weekly and the Associated Press are “deﬁnitely rufﬂing some feathers.” It was the ﬁrst sliver of hope that the Andersons have had since the death of their 19-year-old daughter, USAF Airman First Class Kelsey Anderson. She was found shot with her own service weapon while on duty as a security ofﬁcer in the early morning hours of June 9, 2011, at Guam’s Andersen Air Force Base. A BW investigation (BW, Feature, “The Long Goodbye,” July 17, 2013) revealed how the trail of witnesses had gone cold, with numerous parties being reassigned from the Guam base since Kelsey Anderson’s death. And more than two years following the incident, the Andersons have yet to receive any communication from the USAF regarding the circumstances of the shooting. The Oroﬁno couple has since ﬁled suit against the U.S. government, listing the USAF as a defendant, with summonses appearing on the doorsteps of the U.S. attorney general and the U.S. attorney for the District of Idaho. “[Welsh] told me he wasn’t in a position just now to tell me anything, and that he just recently found out about Kelsey’s case,” Anderson told BW. Welsh, a four-star general, is the most senior uniformed ofﬁcer in the Air Force and a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. “I asked [Welsh] if he had a daughter, and he told me he did,” said Anderson. “He said, ‘I don’t know what I would do if I were you.’” Anderson said Welsh gave him “a long line of excuses” but ultimately shared his personal cellphone number, telling Anderson that he should expect answers regarding his daughter’s death “sooner than later.” Meanwhile, the Andersons’ Spokane, Wash.-based attorney, Matt Crotty, told BW that he expected the summonses would be getting “some attention” once they showed up in the inbox of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. “Yes, we’re still waiting, but my sense is that there’s some movement,” said Crotty. —George Prentice

CITIZENS JER EM Y LANNINGHAM
LUKE AND CARL VELLOTTI 14- and 18-year-old brothers will be UCLA roommates this fall GEORGE PRENTICE Seven moves. That’s how long—or short—it took Luke Vellotti to beat me at chess. I could say that I wasn’t paying strict attention to the game because it took place during an interview with a 14-year-old genius. Sufﬁce to say, Vellotti is one of the best players in the nation, recently earning enough points to be considered an International Master by chess’ international governing body. His brother, Carl, 18, is equally competitive and regularly beats Luke at sports and other games (anything other than chess). Boise Weekly recently sat down with the pair to talk about their friendly sibling rivalry and how they’ll soon be in the unique position of being roommates when they begin their freshman year at University of California, Los Angeles.
What’s your earliest recollection of playing chess? Luke: I was probably 4 years old, playing in a chess tournament, and I remember being very happy. I also remember doubling numbers at a pretty early age. I could double all the way to 1 million when I was 4. Did you always attend public schools in Boise? Luke: Yes. I went to Collister, Shadow Hills and Boise High. But I started going to the Treasure Valley Math and Science Center when I was 8 years old. My brother entered [TVMSC] as a sixth-grader. I entered as a third-grader. Carl: We started talking last September about going to the same college when we were done with high school. We applied to a number of places, but when Luke got a full-ride scholarship from the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation to attend UCLA, that pretty much sealed the deal for us to go there. How well do you manage high expectations of yourself? Luke: I always try to work hard. Otherwise there’s not a reason for me to do as well.

International Master-elect until FIDE approves my latest results. The next level, which is the highest rating in the world, is Grand Master. There are only 1,000 Grand Masters in the world. I’ve heard about the elements of chess magic. Tell me about that. Luke: There are three: The ﬁrst is multiple chess, playing a number of players at once.
What’s the longest period of time that you’ve stayed away from home? Luke: Four nights, during a national science bowl competition earlier this year.
How many competitors have you simultaneously defeated? Luke: I played, and won, 21 boards at once. It was a 2010 fundraiser to beneﬁt earthquake victims in Haiti. The second element is blindfold chess.
But you must acknowledge that living away from home will be a pretty big challenge. Luke: It will be a lot different from anything I’ve done before. Carl: One of our parents may stay in Los Angeles during our ﬁrst six months.
Hold it. How is that possible? Luke: Each space is assigned a letter—A through H—and a number—1 through 8. I also play multiple boards blindfolded. The third element is my favorite: speed chess. Each player has no more than one minute to win.
What will your majors be? Luke: Math and computer science. Carl: I’ll be majoring in bioengineering. And what are your professional dreams? Luke: I want to be a doctor. Dr. Michael Gold, an anesthesiologist at St. Al’s hospital, has been a mentor of mine for several years. Carl: I also want to be a doctor, maybe an orthopedic surgeon. How are chess masters rated or ranked? Luke: There’s an international body of chess—the Federation Internationale des Echecs; it’s in France. Right now, I’m an
So let’s talk about the “G” word: genius. Luke: I’ve never taken an IQ test. That’s for everybody else to decide. Does the word “genius” make you uncomfortable? Luke: Not really, I’m used to it. How do you think you’ll manage being around a signiﬁcantly older student population at UCLA? Luke: I’ve been around older students much of my life. Carl: Honestly, for most students, it’s not that big a deal.

Holy Ghost Tent Revival heads to the hills for Idaho-Down.
FRIDAY-SATURDAY JULY 26-27 yee-haw Eight-year-olds, Dude.
THURSDAY JULY 25 the dude abides THE BIG LEBOWSKI Look, let me explain something to you: This is the Big Lebowski, so pull on your bathrobe, polish your bowling balls and gather up your soiled rugs. The Dude abides, and is heading to the Egyptian Theatre for one night only on Thursday, July 25. The Coen brothers’ cult comedy stars Jeff Bridges as Jeff “The Dude” Lebowski, a slacker whom two thugs mistake for a similarly named millionaire, rough him up and “micturate” (read: pee) on his rug. The Dude gathers up his bowling buddies—played by John Goodman and Steve Buscemi—and goes to seek compensation (that rug really tied the room together) from the other Lebowski, sparking off a chain of events involving nihilists, a “kidnapped” porn star and a pederast bowler called Jesus. Boise Classic Movies screened the ﬁlm last year, but for its ﬁrst anniversary, it’s hosting an encore of the eminently quotable classic. Don’t expect a quiet night out—Big Lebowski screenings are renowned for their audience participation, shouting out favorite lines, singing along to Creedence and joining in with Jesus Quintana’s infamous dance (that creep can roll, man).

IDAHO-DOWN Top three reasons to attend the Idaho-Down Music Festival are No. 1: “no drum circles,” No. 2: free camping, No. 3: kick-ass bands (Holy Ghost Tent Revival and Real Life Rockaz). Deep in the Payette National Forest, Brundage Mountain Resort opens its doors for the annual weekend festival, inviting outdoorsand music-lovers alike to soak up the sounds of musicians from across the region, including Miller Creek, StoneSeed, Stonefed and the Sloppy Hogg Trio, among others. In 2009, Boise’s own Equaleyes decided it loved outdoor summer music festivals so much it wanted to start its own. Now in its ﬁfth year at Brundage—a mere 20 minutes from the center of McCall— Idaho-Down kicks off a weekend of music at 3 p.m. Friday, July 26, and doesn’t let up until well past the midnight hour. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 27, and keep going throughout the day and into the night. As a safety precaution, Idaho-Down asks patrons to leave the ﬁreworks and charcoal grills at home. And don’t worry about hotel accommodations—Idaho-Down offers free on-site camping in the ticket price, so festival-goers can pitch a tent or stretch out under the stars. Friday, July 26, 3 p.m.-1:30 a.m.; Saturday, July 27, 11 a.m.-1:30 a.m. $40-$60. Brundage Mountain Resort, 3890 Goose Lake Road, McCall, idahodownfestival.com.
THURSDAYSUNDAY JULY 25-28 deep fried CANYON COUNTY FAIR No matter your personal feelings on carnival rides, country music and staring at farm animals, fairs deserve at least one yearly visit to enjoy the mass gathering of food vendors. The Canyon County Fair—running Thursday, July 25-Sunday, July 28, in Caldwell—is no exception. Visitors gorge on carnival classics like funnel cakes and handdipped corn dogs, but it isn’t every day you can order bizarre and delicious calorie bombs like the deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich from Buffalo Grill or deep fried cheese on a stick from Colossal Onion Blossom.
After ﬁlling your belly and winning a giant stuffed animal at the ring toss, throw on your cowboy hat and mosey on over to the free concert each night at 8 p.m. The Oak Ridge Boys take the stage Thursday, July 25, while .38 Special brings its Southern rock Friday, July 26, followed by country crooner Neal McCoy, Saturday, July 27. Things get spiritual Sunday, July 28, with Christian pop band The Afters. While concerts are included with fair admission, reserved seating can be yours for $25 in advance or $30 at the gate, which includes fair admission. Looking for a way to burn off some of those calories? Sign up for the second annual Barnyard Dash, featuring a three-mile obstacle course covered with various barnyard impediments. The course is free and offers a chance to jump start that new country-themed workout routine. Fair tickets can be purchased WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M

BOISE’S FUNNIEST PERSON It seems everyone’s a comedian nowadays, but after a monthlong hunt for the everyday Boise citizen with the best rib ticklers and side splitters, Liquid Lounge hosts the grand ﬁnale of the ﬁrst Boise’s Funniest Person contest Saturday, July 27. Contestants have performed for a panel of judges every Saturday throughout July, whittling 20 initial comedians (selected from a pool of enthusiastic amateurs) down to ﬁve, who will standoff with their stand-up to decide the victor. Just remember, heavy is the head that wears the crown of Boise’s Funniest Person. The winner can expect to hear “tell us a joke” more than maybe they want to. Luckily, the contestants have been teamed up with some of Boise’s top comedians—like Liquid regulars Olek Szewczyk and Mikey Pullman—to help craft their stand-up skills, letting them deﬂect the hardest of heckles with a well-timed put-down, so they should be armed with a quick response to the endless requests for laughs. The winner will be decided both by the judges—made up of a pool of local comedians and critics—and the audience’s reaction. So turn up for the doors at 7 p.m., pay your $5 entry fee and make your laughter heard for your favorite. 7 p.m. $5. Liquid, 405 S. Eighth St., Boise, 208-287-5379, boisesfunniestperson.com.

The Idaho State Historical Museum presents one hell of a psychedelic crossover as it celebrates bygone eras. On Friday, July 26, the 60/60 event combines the sharp shootin’ of the 1860s with the free love of the 1960s. Celebrate your favorite era in Wild West saloon- and Mod-themed bars while period music from the Vinyl Preservation Society wafts through the museum. It will also be a night of vintage costumes, groovy games, contests and prizes. At the same time, check out the Essential Idaho exhibit, where guests can explore the lives of Idahoans from each decade. Admission costs $20 in advance or $25
SATURDAY JULY 27 space oddity MARS AND STARS BAM Control to Major Toms: take your protein pills and put your helmets on for Boise Art Museum’s daylong tour of the Red Planet. From noon-4 p.m. Saturday, July 27, BAM hosts some Martian madness for all ages, with a hands-on workshop creating sculptures for a Martian landscape diorama, a reading of sci-ﬁ stories, an artist’s demo on how to make outer space props from household objects, and other interactive space activities with the Discovery Center of Idaho. That evening, beam yourself up to Mars and Stars, an adults-only event featuring live Martian-inspired music from Radio Boise DJs Matt Daley and Matt Jones, arcade games courtesy of Space Bar and sci-ﬁ themed photo opportunities. Take a telescope to BAM’s Sculpture Garden for some stargazing—and maybe even spot a UFO or two. Make sure to take advantage of the supplied aluminum foil hats to stop the little green men from knowing what you sample at the cash bar. And it’s not just fun and games; the event beneﬁts BAM’s education programs. While there, be sure to check out the Mars Revisited exhibit by renowned collaborative artists Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick. The multi-genre installation uses Idaho’s own Craters of the Moon as a Martian backdrop. Martian Madness is free for BAM members, or included with the price of admission for other earthlings. Mars and Stars costs $10 for members or $15 for the public. Martian Madness, noon-4 p.m. FREE-$6. Mars and Stars, 7-11 p.m. $10-$15.

FIND KONSTRUKTOR DIY SLR CAMERA Everyone has a digital camera nowadays— usually built into a smartphone—enabling users to push every nuance of their lives onto $35, shop.lomography.com/us/konstruktor Facebook and Instagram. But there’s still something to be said for the old analog method: the click of the shutter, the whirr of the winder; real, physical photos in real, physical photo albums. Old-school enthusiasts Lomography are determined to make the hands-on experience of analog photography even more tactile, selling a DIY 35mm SLR camera for $35. The aptly named Konstruktor arrives much like a model car kit, with parts needing to be trimmed out of their plastic frame before assembly. Lomography suggests the assembly of the camera and 50mm F10 lens should take about an hour or two. And if you want to get really meta, you can take some pictures of it as you go. Once it’s assembled, you can point, shoot and ﬁnd out what it looks like once the ﬁlm’s used up and developed. You’ll be a lot more choosy about your shots with only 24 per roll, but isn’t that a good thing? Does the online world really need to see your every meal? And for fans of Instagram’s retro ﬁlters, where do you think they got that look in the ﬁrst place? —Chris Grapes

ARTS/BOOK REVIEW COPPER MINING’S COMPLICATED LEGACIES GET A HARD LOOK IN OPPORTUNITY, MONTANA With their storm-swallowing massiveness and veined, granitic peaks, Western landscapes invite a comforting lie: Theirs is a resilience no species so thin of skin, so vulnerable to cold wind and sharp rock, could sap. Nobody believes this lie anymore, if we ever did. What contemporary environmentalists believe in is redemption; that we can undo harms levied in a previous age of resource exploitation. Brad Tyer’s Opportunity, Montana (Beacon, 2013) is a meticulously researched, entertaining rant of nonﬁction that targets with bullseye precision contemporary environmentalism’s faith in redemption. Tyer, a native Texan and longtime journalist, relocated to Montana more than a decade ago. His book is part love letter to Montana rivers and part exploration of his toxic relationship with his father. But mostly, it’s an examination of the legacies of Montana copper mining. According to Tyer, copper made a few horrendously rich, created jobs for a region, wired a nation and will sicken a landscape for generations. At the book’s heart is a tiny town with an irresistibly ironic name: Opportunity. Opportunity was built in the 20th century for employees of the Anaconda Mining Company, which owned copper mines in and around Butte, Mont. Since the company also owned the land surrounding the town, nobody complained when staggering quantities of toxic smelter residue and mine tailings were dumped onto adjacent wetlands and even used as construction ﬁll. Fast forward to the age of redemption. A decade ago, activists began pushing hard for commencement of a long-promised Superfund cleanup of the Clark Fork, a pretty, poisoned river near Missoula, Mont. They won. Trainloads of toxic soil and residue from those same Butte area mines would be excavated from the riverbed and banks and moved. To Opportunity. Tyer doesn’t say this is wrong. Cleaning up the Clark Fork, he says, is clearly right. But it would be deeply wrong to pretend that the only costs of the cleanup are ﬁnancial. It would be wrong to pretend, for instance, that the now twice-poisoned town of Opportunity doesn’t exist.

“The best songwriter you’ve never heard of?” So reads the headline for a 2003 Los Angeles Times review of David Olney’s album, The Wheel. However, quite a few people have heard of the Nashville, Tenn.-based musician. Steve Earle once called Olney “one of the best songwriters in the world.” Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt have both covered his work, and legendary troubadour Townes Van Zandt numbered Olney among his four favorite songwriters (the other three were Bob Dylan, Lightnin’ Hopkins and Mozart). Olney’s album High, Wide and Lonesome features contributions from The Band’s Rick Danko and Garth Hudson, as well as from the Flying Burrito Brothers’ Sneaky Pete Kleinow. So now that you’ve heard of David Olney, go see him at the Riverside Hotel. —Ben Schultz With John Hansen. 7 p.m. doors, 8 p.m. show, $10 general, $13 preferred seating.

THE SOFT WHITE SIXTIES, JULY 28, NEUROLUX The San Francisco-based hard-rock quintet The Soft White Sixties played this year’s South By Southwest in Austin, Texas. Paste Magazine caught the performance and named the band one of its 25 favorite acts at the festival, along with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Flaming Lips, Sharon Jones and Prince. In June, the band played a sold-out release party in San Francisco for its debut album, Get Right. So far, Idahoans have had four chances to say they saw the Sixties “back when.” One of them was a Radio Boise Tuesday set in 2012 and another was a midnight show during the inaugural Treefort Music Fest, which featured frontman Octavio Genera swinging from the Red Room’s stage. If you haven’t seen the band yet, you still have time to get right. The Soft White Sixties won’t stay a secret much longer.

Bill Burr brings his feather-rufﬂing best to Boise.
A lot of time, you go into town and the local guy opens up for you. You meet him and talk to him 20 minutes before and after, then on to the next city.” Another thing Burr seems to revere is the craft of acting, something he’s been doing more of lately. “You go to the Montreal comedy festival, then they say, ‘Do you have an idea for a TV show?’ and I did. And I didn’t want to stink in it, so I started taking acting classes,” Burr said. He quickly discovered that acting also required a serious artistic journey. “I don’t think acting gets enough credit,” Burr said. “I think everybody thinks they can act. I mean, Shaq has starred in movies. But an actor can’t just go play some games for The Lakers. And it’s one of those things where if you have some natural ability for it, and you can play a character that’s like yourself, people can say, ‘Oh, it’s easy.’ And it’s not. Think about Anthony Hopkins. Most actors if they gave a performance like Hannibal Lecter, they’d be typecast for the rest of their career. People can’t see them as anyone else. But he’s literally becoming someone else in a role.” Though he has had roles in ﬁlms like Date Night and on TV shows like Breaking Bad and Chapelle’s Show, Burr says acting remains more of a bonus than his actual career. “Acting is just like stand-up comedy. It’s just endless. It’s just how far you want to take it, how good you want to get at it. But my goals are all as a stand-up comedian. I am working to get better, but there are only so many hours in the day,” he said. Based on his current success, however, at least one goal is certainly attainable. “I’d like to see how far up the list [of Comedy Central’s greatest comics of all time] I can get, knowing full well that the top 25 are all unpassable. But I’d like to be number 26.” And to get there, Burr might have to offend your delicate sensibilities a smidgen. If he does, know that he did so with the best intentions and nothing but joy in his heart. WWW. B O I S E WE E KLY. C O M

HOP TO IT BREWS
DESCHUTES FRESH SQUEEZED IPA, $4.99$6.49 A trio of hops (citra, mosaic and nugget) comes together in this brew from Bend, Ore.’s Deschutes. The pour is dark amber and sports a decent, light tan head. The brew is fruit-driven on the nose, offering apple, mango and orange, along with peppery hops and caramel. You get sweet caramel ﬂavors up front that segue into ripe citrus, with the hops lurking in the background and on the ﬁnish. This is a great summer IPA. LAUGHING DOG PUREBRED CITRA AMERICAN PALE ALE, $4.49-$5.49 From the small town of Ponderay, just north of Sandpoint, this bomber spotlights the mildly bitter citra hop variety. It’s a crystal clear, golden brew, with a thick, porous head that fades quickly. The ﬂoral aromas are a mix of bright orange, mango and grass with a whiff of blue cheese. Light but lovely in the mouth, smooth malt and apricot is backed by a decent hit of resiny hops. EPIC HOPULENT IPA, RELEASE NO. 67, $6.49$7.99 This Salt Lake City brewery dry-hopped its IPA with mosaic (one of the new, hot hop varieties), as well as using it in the boil. In the glass, this beer is a cloudy orange ale with a one-ﬁnger head that persists nicely. It’s a bit reserved on the nose, but offers aromas of grain, Meyer lemon and pinelaced hops. The ﬂavor proﬁle is much bigger, with bold, resiny hops playing against sweet malt that’s laced with layers of ripe, tropical fruit. A touch of citrus adds balance to the ﬁnish. —David Kirkpatrick

In the Northwest, hops drive the craft brew scene—which is no surprise given the number of varieties that are available locally. In the recent past, monster IPAs with astronomical International Bitterness Unit levels ruled, but a new trend is emerging. Brews that spotlight just a variety or a few hops in a more restrained style work well when the temperature rises. Here are three hop-centric bombers that ﬁt the bill.
10 BARREL BREWING Smoked meat and suds TARA MORGAN 10 Barrel Brewing is built for Vikings. It takes both arms to wrest a solid wood chair from under one of the Boise brewpub’s mammoth tables, giant steel fermenters rise from one end of the always-packed bar area like castle turrets, and piled bags of malted wheat act as bunker-ish room dividers. Not to mention, pulling the dense metal door to the bathroom shut feels like locking yourself in solitary. Industrial? Try Medieval. And that vibe translates to the menu.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): “I have tried in my way to be free,” sings Leonard Cohen in his song “Bird on a Wire.” In other words, he has done the best he can to liberate himself from his unconscious patterns, bad habits and self-delusions. He hasn’t been perfect in his efforts, but the work he has done has earned him a measure of deliverance from his suffering. I recommend you follow his lead, Aries. Do your best to bring more relief and release into your life. Get rid of things that hold you back. Overthrow a pinched expectation and ignore a so-called limitation or two. By this time next week, I hope you will be able to say sincerely, “I have tried in my way to be free.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm,” wrote the novelist Willa Cather. According to my reading of the astrological omens, Taurus, you’re in a phase of your cycle when storm-learning isn’t your priority. The educational experiences you need most will unfold when you’re exploring the mysteries of peace and serenity. In fact, I suspect that the deeper you relax, the more likely it is that you will attract life-changing teachings— lessons that can transform your life for the better and fuel you for a long time. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Is there a message you’ve wanted to deliver for a long time but haven’t been able to? Are you bursting with thoughts or feelings that you’ve been longing to express but can’t find the right way to do so? Have you spent months carrying around a poignant truth that you have felt wasn’t ripe enough to be revealed? If your answer to any of those questions is yes, I believe the time will soon be at hand to make a move. But it’s important that you’re not impulsive or melodramatic as you initiate your breakthrough communications. For best results, be full of grace and balance. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Bees and other insects can see ultraviolet light, which is invisible to humans. When they look at flowers, they detect designs on the petals that you and I cannot. For example, the evening primrose appears completely yellow to us, but it calls seductively to bees with a flashy star pattern at its center. Many of the secret signs that flowers offer the pollinators are meant to guide them to where the pollen and nectar are. Let’s use this as our metaphor of the week, Cancerian. I am not predicting that you will be able to perceive a broader spectrum of light. But I do believe you will discern cues and clues that are hidden from most people and that have been imperceptible to you in the past.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “I was 6 years old when my parents told me that there was a small, dark jewel inside my skull, learning to be me.” So said the Leo science fiction writer Greg Egan in his story “Learning to Be Me.” Let’s pretend that you, too, have a small dark jewel inside your skull that’s learning to be you. It’s a good metaphor for what I believe has been happening all these years: You have been gradually mastering the art of being the best Leo you can be. It hasn’t been easy. You weren’t born knowing how to be your beautiful, radiant, courageous self, but have had to work hard to activate your potentials. Now you’re moving into an especially critical phase of the process: a time when you have the chance to learn how to love yourself with greater ingenuity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Dear Astrology Guy: Please tell me why I have to work so hard—meditate, reflect, read, analyze, poke, prod, investigate—to discover truths about myself that must be obvious to others. Why is it so hard for me to see where I need healing and where I need to let go? Why is it such an ordeal to grasp what is interfering with my wholeness when I can quickly pinpoint what other people’s issues are? —Overworked Virgo.” Dear Overworked: I’m happy to report that you Virgos will soon be offered a gush of revelations about who you are, how you can heal, and what strategies will best serve your quest to minimize your anxiety. Are you prepared to absorb some intense teachings? For best results, make yourself extra receptive. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): One of the world’s best race car teams is McLaren. It wins about 25 percent of the events in which it competes. Its skilled drivers account for much of its success, but its technicians are also pretty sensational. During a pit stop in the middle of a race, they can change all four tires on the car in less than three seconds. Do you have helpers like that, Libra? If you don’t, it’s time to intensify your efforts to get them. And if you do, it’s time to call on them to give you an extra boost. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Let’s try an experiment. It’s risky, but I’m hoping you will do it with such flair that there will be no karmic blowback. What I propose, Scorpio, is that you have fun expressing more confidence than usual. I invite you to strut a bit, even swagger, as you demonstrate your command over your circumstances. Enjoy acting as if the world is your plaything... as if everyone around you secretly needs you to rise up and be a bigger, bolder version of yourself. The trick, of course, will be to avoid getting puffed up with grandiose
delusions. Your challenge is to be more wildly devoted to embodying your soul’s code without lapsing into arrogance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I suspect that you are longing to take a quantum leap of faith, but are also afraid to take that leap. You sense the potential of experiencing a very cool expansion, while at the same time you hesitate to leave your comfort zone and give up your familiar pain. In light of the conflict, which may not be entirely conscious, I suggest you hold off on making a gigantic quantum leap of faith. Instead, experiment with a few bunny hops of faith. Build up your courage with some playful skips and skitters and bounces that incrementally extend your possibilities. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Hoaxes exposed! Bluffs called! Secrets revealed! Curses banished! Taboos broken! Those are the headlines I expect to see emblazoned in your Book of Life during the coming weeks. Can you handle that many holy disruptions? Will you be able to deal with the stress that might come from having so much raucous success? These are important questions, because if you’re not up to the challenge, you may scare away the transformations. So steel your resolve, Capricorn. Mobilize your will. Do what’s necessary to harvest the unruly blessings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The French novelist Flaubert declared that if you hope to write a book, you should first read 1,500 books. A Roman author named Petronius believed that the imagination does not work at its peak power unless it is inundated with reading material. I suggest you adopt their advice and apply it to your own field, Aquarius. Whatever skill or subject you want to master, expose yourself lavishly to the efforts of other people who have already mastered it. Flood yourself with well-crafted inspiration. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Should you be worried that a venomous spider has crawled into your shoe while you were sleeping? Just in case, should you flip your shoe upside-down before putting it on each morning? My studied opinion: hell, no. The chances of you being bitten on the foot by a venomous spider lurking in your shoe are even less than the possibility that you will be abducted by an alien who looks like Elvis Presley and forced to sing a karaoke version of Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” at an extraterrestrial bar. And if you are going around filled with delusional anxieties like that, you will definitely interfere with life’s current predilection, which is to give you a cleansing respite from your fears, as well as immunity from harm.
