EDITOR’S NOTE A FAREWELL AND A THANK-YOU It has been a tough year with the passing of some of Boise’s celebrated and beloved artists. We lost Molly Hill, a longtime Boise Weekly cover artist and mother of Associate Publisher Amy Atkins to a house fire in April, and now we mourn the Sept. 28 death of Bob Neal, 54, whose work not only graced the cover of BW, but is on one of walls in our office. Neal was the recipient of a 2014 Cover Auction Artist Grant, and he created a mural that drew on a concept he was exploring for a series yet to be seen publicly. Neal was a true renaissance man. He was a slam poet, acted in many i48 films, participated in Modern Art, published zines and coloring books and worked with Treasure Valley Community Television where he hosted “Modern Bob’s 21st Century Art Show.” The mediums Neal used were as varied as his interests: sculpture, large-format paintings, multimedia, video and film, and he contributed a design for the city’s traffic box art program. Any habitue of Flying M was probably familiar with Neal. A plaque will be placed on a bench outside the coffeeshop in his memory. Neal was born in Conway, Ark. Because his father worked for Morrison-Knudsen, the family moved every year. They arrived in Boise as Neal was preparing for his final year of elementary school, and the family stayed in the City of Trees through Neal’s graduation from Capital High School. Lucky for us, he never left. He will be remembered by all those touched by his art, insight and authenticity; his fellow ultimate Frisbee players, the Spud Boyz; and his wife, Jeanne Huff, who will continue many of the projects on which she and Neal collaborated. A celebration at the Visual Arts Center is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. Huff hopes those who have supported and collected Neal’s work over the years will bring it to VAC on Saturday, Nov. 7 and Monday Nov. 9, noon-6 p.m. so it can be part of a special showcase of the breadth of his career as an artist. Speaking of beloved community members, BW would like to thank all those who participated in this year’s Best of Boise, and if anyone may have felt slighted by our snark, rest assured, we love you (looking your way, Boise Co-op). —Zach Hagadone

THE FLUTTER! NO. 18 The Society #MakingPeopleBetter Newsletter BILL COPE Welcome, Brothers and Sisters, to another issue of THE FLUTTER!, the very excellent monthly newsletter of the Society for Making People Better. It has been five months since our last monthly newsletter and that is TERRIFIC NEWS!, as the average gap between monthly newsletters is just over eight months. So let us rejoice! Your SFMPB is getting better at putting out monthly newsletters, if nothing else. Undoubtedly, you’re wondering why your Brother Bill has decided to roll out of his Barcalounger and issue another issue now. Well... funny story... he was flipping his attentions through the channels one recent evening and no matter where he landed, there was the big, orangey head of Donald Trump! It was like one of those science fiction movies where some extremely yucky creature takes over all the Earth’s media outlets and announces its intentions of world domination on all television screens at once. Only in the movie, the yucky creature has a larger vocabulary. Brother Bill realized immediately that if he was experiencing such discomfort with this situation, it was highly likely that his Society Brothers and Sisters were going through the same pain. “What we have here is an overabundance of Donald Trump!” he declared (to no one in particular, since Mrs. Brother Bill had gone out that evening to play Bunco with friends), and he leapt across the room like a gazelle to his Web surfing machine and went searching for any outbreaks of cheeriness that might have been blocked by the big, orangey head or other atrocious catastrophes. Following are three items of Trumplessness that Brother Bill has extracted from under the sludge. May they elevate your happy pheromones to a noticeable degree. • Happy Item One: We will no longer have those exorbitant royalty payments deducted from our paychecks for singing “Happy Birthday.” It’s true, it’s true! You thought you were getting it for free, but no! Until a judge ruled recently that the universally loved tune is now in the public domain, it has been the property of a publishing company that claims to have had the rights dating back to it’s composition in 1893. And you wondered what that “FICA deduction” meant on your check stub?... well now you know. It was to pay for all those times you bellowed the song whenever your child or spouse turned over another year on the age odometer. • Happy Item Two: It has now been proved that sleeping in the nude is good for you. This was especially gratifying news to Brother Bill, but he can’t tell you why. • Happy Item Three: Dr. Ben Carson is no longer performing neurosurgery!

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! We know you know Dr. Ben Carson used to perform neurosurgery. Why, since he’s been running for president, you hardly ever hear his named mentioned without someone adding “the brilliant retired neurosurgeon.” But honestly, judging by the decidedly non-brilliant things that drop from this guy’s mouth, it’s hard to fathom how he got such a reputation. For instance, Dr. Carson is on film telling a group of actual people that Satan is some sort of a lobbyist for the Theory of Evolution. His exact words were: “I personally believe that this theory that Darwin [a truly brilliant fellow and an honorary member of the SFMPB, if you remember] came up with was something that was encouraged by the adversary”—the “adversary,” in holy rollerspeak, being Old Nick, himself. That’s just the tip of the Dr. Ben-berg. Carson is on record declaring, against all common sense and confirmed science, that homosexuality is an elective behavior, as demonstrated by guys who go into prison straight and come out gay. He didn’t actually name any individuals who chose their sexuality based on the romance and allure of jailhouse sex, but perhaps when you’re a neurosurgeon, you don’t have to concern yourself with specificity. Like... any old slice will do. Among other Carson crapistries are his statements that Obamacare is a greater evil than the 9/11 attacks, and is in fact the worst thing to happen to America since slavery; that Obama himself is a psychopath who is out to destroy our economy; that a president can ignore the law as decided by the Supreme Court if he so wishes. With statements like that, Brother Bill has to wonder if anyone actually talked to Doc Carson before handing him a scalpel. We must thank our lucky stars the doctor is no longer out there, filleting other brains with such a clearly defective one himself. ••• Before we leave you this month, Brother Bill wants you to know he is nominating Pope Francis as an honorary member of the SFMPB. Mr. Francis is proof that the struggle to make people better can be carried on, even from within an institution historically responsible for making so many people worse. Also, Mrs. Brother Bill has returned from her Bunco party just in time to inform Brother Bill that the FICA deduction on your paystubs has absolutely nothing to do with the collection of royalties on “Happy Birthday To You” performances. Brother Bill promises that by the next THE FLUTTER! he will find out what that FICA really means. BOISE WEEKLY.COM

OPINION COMMITTEE HALLUCINATIONS The impossibility of history JOHN REMBER Last week the Regional History Advisory Committee met at the Ketchum Community Library. I was there. I had personal stories of the Wood River Valley. My great-grandfather settled there during the mining boom of the late 1870s and had become sheriff of Blaine County. His son, my grandfather, had been a mining engineer and surveyor who surveyed mines in the Wood River Mining District. My father had been a hard-rock miner at the Triumph Mine. I intended to bring up the example of the Irish monasteries during the Dark Ages. Monks in Ireland copied and recopied manuscripts at a time when parchment was being used as heating fuel in the rest of Europe. I’ve always looked with favor upon libraries, because I think they will be the institutions that preserve our civilization’s algorithms for the technician-archaeologists of the future. The Ketchum Library, isolated by mountains and desert, seems a likely candidate. I ended up not advising much. Much of the meeting was focused on Hemingway’s legacy, which was understandable, considering that Hemingway is big business in the Wood River Valley. I wanted to caution about using dead writers for cynical commercial purposes, particularly if they had crafted cynical commercial images for themselves in the first place. But the conversation did not go in that direction. When talk turned to the ski industry, I realized the history of skiing is a history of mythmaking, and it’s the Olympic champions and the inventors of ski technologies who go into the history books, not the maids and lift mechanics and ski bus drivers. The more people talked about history, the less I had to say. After a while I started wondering how my history conspired to make me a writer, and—still thinking of Hemingway—how it’s possible for a writer’s public image to devour the writer who created it. I wondered if a community’s history isn’t a kind of public image, one carefully constructed out of selected facts, and I wondered if communities could be devoured by their own stories. When I teach memoir workshops, I tell my students that writing a memoir is a kind of personal archaeology, and that every time they write down a memory they will uncover another layer of their own buried past. Eventually they will get down to the tomb entrances, where the amber beads set in gold are draped across crumbling bones. If they are good enough writers, they might discover something—maybe a curse—still lives down there. History is as dangerous as memoir, for opposite reasons. Every historian adds a layer of BOISE WEEKLY.COM

facts to many other layers of facts. Individuals and their memories get buried deeper and deeper under a community story. In the Wood River Valley, mining towns have been buried under new buildings and asphalt. Trees have replaced sagebrush. Bits of shacks and saloons lie under trophy homes and banks. But the real burying has occurred in the choosing of particular events and people for a safely distant story. Memories too often have the immediacy of hallucination. If you’re like me, there are too many of them to make sense of. It’s up to the historian to convert the city to a green mound, to transform the deadly work of mining to a ritual parade of ore wagons, to fast-forward a human life into a title on a tombstone. History, done right, is a most reductive exercise, a compaction of the fertile earth of memory. During the meeting I began to remember the people I had gone to school with in Ketchum Elementary, which stood a block away, where Atkinson’s Market stands now. In my own archives is a class photo of my first-grade class. It would be good to look up each of those 65-yearolds, and see what they remember of Ketchum and their lives there. Even with the ones still living, it would be an excavation of buried selves. Their memories would expand the region of any regional historian, especially since a good many of the people who lived in Ketchum in the 1950s have become refugees, forced out of the valley by rising property values. At the end of the meeting, I thought of Les Outz, another sheriff of Blaine County, who held office when I was in grade school. It was rumored that when Outz left office, he burned the records of all the Blaine County sheriffs, even the ones in my great-grandfather’s hand. There were respectable families living in Hailey and Ketchum that hadn’t always been respectable, and Outz wanted to save them from their past. All I could think of, sitting in a room full of historical photos and records, was that the ones I really wanted to see had been destroyed for the sake of propriety. I certainly wasn’t going to be the sort of efficient committee member who kept things moving forward, who would know who and what to remember so the past could move seamlessly into the present. I was too interested in rumor, gossip and fiction. My subjects were the freakish, the obscure, the failures, the moved and the shaken rather than the movers and the shakers. Look to the ashes and the edits for the truth, I would say, and that made me a most improper historian, that guy on the committee easily identified as the troublemaker, the one who made the simple past into an impossible project.

This North End alley garnered plenty of media attention , much to Aaron Blanchard’s dismay.

PAVED PARADISE? Aaron Blanchard groaned as he watched a flurry of feel-good media reports on a Boise North End alleyway being covered in asphalt, evolving into what neighbors dubbed the “SNOW block” because it is “slightly north of Washington School.” “But it’s the SNOW block pave-pocalypse,” Blanchard said. “The project is the antithesis of the North End’s ‘earth friendly’ reputation.” Blanchard said he’s less concerned about how residents paved the former dirt alley between 15th and 16th streets with asphalt and more worried about the trend it might set. “Lo and behold, everyone seems to be raving about how great this is and how more neighbors now want to cover their alleys with asphalt,” said Blanchard. “I wonder if they’re thinking about the ‘urban heat island’ impact?” The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says urban heat islands trigger greenhouse gases, air pollution and greater energy demands. “Heat islands in urban areas are three to seven degrees warmer during the day and as much as 22 degrees warmer in the evenings,” said Blanchard. “Asphalt holds that heat it in during the day and releases it at night.” Blanchard pushes back against urban heat islands for a living by caring for the City of Trees’ namesake: He’s an arborist. He and business partner / girlfriend DJ Kessler have a unique view of Boise’s North End—quite literally—from high above the neighborhood’s rooftops, where they doctor some of city’s tallest trees. “Covering up a dirt alley with asphalt was clearly the cheap alternative for those neighbors. Quite frankly, that’s an abomination to the ecosystem,” said Blanchard. “But the urban heat island is only the beginning. How about the fact that the alley is now domed by asphalt, creating a dense runoff of polluted water? We’re talking about oil, de-icing and obviously garbage trucks rolling through there.” Kessler said she and Blanchard aren’t interested in confrontation. They just want to get people talking. “We want to get more people engaged,” said Kessler. “We’ve been disappointed to hear from a number of other neighbors saying that they too want to cover their alley with asphalt. They should consider the alternatives.” They need look no further than down8 town Boise for alternatives, where the Ada County Highway District has turned 6 | OCTOBER 7–13, 2015 | BOISEweekly

NEWS THE ‘RELENTLESS PURSUIT’ OF ELIMINATING CHRONIC HOMELESSNESS Boise tries the Pay for Success model GEORGE PRENTICE In 1933, as the United States was mired in a historic economic depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt summed up his approach to stanching the loss of jobs, property and wealth: “Do something. If it works, do more of it. If it doesn’t, do something else.” More than 80 years later, economic cycles continue to rip the fabric of American society. At last count in January, there were still nearly 2,000 Idaho men, women and children without a home, 13 percent of whom are considered chronically homeless—meaning they either have a disabling condition, have been continuously homeless for a year or more or have had at least four episodes of homelessness in the past three years. “How many homeless people is it OK to have sleeping on the street at night? Of course none is the only answer, the only one that we can ever allow,” said Boise Mayor Dave Bieter in his State of the City address in September. “This is the time to take on one of our most challenging issues.” The city of Boise has taken Roosevelt’s advice to heart in its battle against homelessness, spearheading and funding a myriad of services or programs: the operation of a winter day shelter; the distribution of hotel vouchers; and, in perhaps its most successful partnership, the creation of Allumbaugh House—a crisis and mental health facility where nearly half of the patients identify themselves as homeless. But Boise’s most ambitious effort to date could turn the decision to wipe out chronic homelessness on its ear. “The first thing you need to know about this is that Councilwoman Lauren McLean really took the lead to help the city get on board with

A recent analysis indicates that Boise and Ada County taxpayers and consumers could be paying $38,000— $84,000 each year for care—primarily at local hospital emergency rooms—of the chronically homeless.

something that’s called ‘Pay for Success,’” said Diana Lachiondo, director of Boise Community Partnerships at City Hall. “Sure, governments can dream up a million programs that they think are going to work, but what if government instead defined the bottom line outcomes and turned to the service providers to deliver those outcomes.” The most innovative piece of the new model may surprise some Ada County taxpayers: They’ll help fund programs to battle chronic homelessness but not until the outcomes have been reached and verified. In other words, a private funder or corporation would pay most of the upfront costs to the service providers and taxpayers won’t pay back the funder until success has been achieved—hence, “paying for success.” Boise and Ada County taxpayers and consumers are already pumping thousands of dollars each year into crisis services for chronically homeless men and women. A recent analysis from the Boise City Ada County Continuum of Care indicates anywhere from $38,000 to $84,000 is required for crisis care—primarily at local hospital emergency rooms—in addition to police, fire and paramedic costs. The biggest expense attributed to homeless men and women comes from the Ada County Jail, where the survey indicated an average of $7,000 is required each year to incarcerate a stunning amount of Ada County’s homeless. “I guess that thing that jumped off the page for me was when I visited the Ada County Jail and discovered that of the average 800 people they have behind bars on a daily basis about 100 of them are considered homeless,” said Vanessa Fry, assistant director of the Public Policy Research Center at Boise State University. “I also saw data that indicates homeless men and women have longer stays at the jail. I asked myself,

‘What’s that all about?’” That question resonated with Lachiondo, who has been Bieter’s eyes and ears in a series of community forums and workshops involving service providers for Boise’s homeless population. “I was part of a group that did some of the recent survey work on homeless individuals. Yes, there are very real costs involved, but these are real people, real lives,” said Lachiondo. “One of the gentlemen I sat down with indicated he had some mental health challenges. He shared that he had tried to kill himself when he was very young. He shared with me that he had been to the emergency room eight times in the past four months. That instantly tells me that we, as a community have a significant opportunity.” The survey, including similar conversations with homeless men and women, triggered the award of a $100,000 grant to the city of Boise from the University of Utah School of Business Policy Innovation Lab to fund a comprehensive feasibility study that will be conducted by Fry. Its conclusions are expected to be gathered by next spring, leading to a new Ada County Pay for Success model. “One of the most exciting things about this opportunity is the possibility of attracting significant funding from outside of Idaho,” said Lachiondo. “One of Idaho’s biggest challenges is that nonprofit programs are all going to the same people and foundations for funding,” she said, adding there is a greater appetite among some large U.S. corporations—Goldman Sachs among them—expressing support for the Pay for Success model.” Lachiondo acknowledged large, sus8 tained cash flow is imperative for any longterm solutions for chronic homelessness, BOISE WEEKLY.COM

The city lets the public name foothills trails, with mixed results

ACHD has introduced permeable pavers to three “green alleys” in Boise’s downtown core.

traditional alleyways into what it calls “green alleys.” Instead of concrete or 6 asphalt, ACHD has installed permeable pavers—made primarily with brick—between Third and Fourth streets, Fifth and Sixth streets and 13th and 14th streets. The paver design allows stormwater to run through the bricks before making its way into groundwater and the Boise River. “Below the brick surface, the stormwater is filtered through multiple layers that, in effect, scrub the water, sending fewer pollutants to the river,” said ACHD spokeswoman Nicole DuBois. “If these permeable pavers do what we’re told, that will save us quite a bit in the long run. For now, the three downtown alleys are pilot projects; we’ll be keeping a close eye on them.” ACHD has a partnership program where neighbors can share the cost of the repaving of an alley. Simply put, ACHD pays for the materials if the neighbors foot the bill for manpower. The project, before it’s approved by ACHD, must have 100 percent cost participation from every property owner impacted by the paving. “And that’s what we did. It started with a small idea to make our alley a lot more presentable and the process took us the better part of a year,” said Linda Whittig, the North End resident who spearheaded the SNOW block concept. “Believe me, I begged to use permeable pavers instead of asphalt for our alley, but it was entirely cost prohibitive.” Ultimately, the neighbors paid about $5,300 for the labor while ACHD footed the bill for materials, including the asphalt. Blanchard and Kessler said they’re still hoping other neighborhoods think twice before wanting to cover their alleyways with asphalt. “But that won’t be happening anytime soon,” said DuBois. “It’s October, and our asphalt plants are getting ready to close for the winter. Even if there was a great amount of interest, there will be a lull” DuBois added that while ACHD was anxious to gauge the effectiveness of its own green alleys in downtown Boise, district officials weren’t yet in a position to fully endorse permeable pavers for all future neighborhood alleyway paving requests. “It’s an interesting dilemma, because we definitely know what asphalt does,” she said. “Ideally down the road, we’d like to see a lot more green alleys.” —George Prentice 8 | OCTOBER 7–13, 2015 | BOISEweekly

JESSICA MURRI “Dickbutt Ravine.” “Hitler Did Nothing Wrong Trail.” “Reefer Madness.” “Donald Trump’s Toupee.” This is what Boise city officials got when they invited the public to suggest names for a series of Hillside to Hollow trails. Since the city of Boise and the Treasure Valley Land Trust purchased 319 acres of foothills stretching from Quail Hollow Golf Course to Bogus Basin Road, the two entities have strived to include the public in the planning process. In the beginning, city planners put together open houses in which they laid out maps of existing trails and asked the public to sketch out what trails should stay, which should go and what trails could be added. Instead of naming the trails in the traditional way—based on geographic features or nearby landmarks—the city opened up the naming process to the public in December 2014. “Why not stay in the collaborative spirit of the whole thing?” David Gordon, program manager for Ridge to Rivers, said at the time. After hundreds of ideas rolled in and the city opened online suggestions, Gordon and his colleagues quickly realized they needed to give the public some guidance. Suggestions like “Brad’s Massive One,” “Ron Swanson” and “Pepsi is Better Than Coke Trail” didn’t make the best names. Another problem: several of the suggested names were in honor of deceased people or pets. “This is where it gets really awkward or uncomfortable for me,” said Sara Arkle, Foothills Open Space senior manager for Boise. “Those people and those animals mean so much to those individuals, but there were so many submissions, that you can’t cater to all of them. In naming an asset like a trail, there has to be a level of significance to the city, the region, the state.” There are trails in the network with obscure

names: “Shane’s Loop,” “Sweet Connie,” “Bob’s Trail.” Arkle said those have been retained because they’ve been around for generations, “and it gives character to the system.” To better control the naming process, Parks and Recreation officials crafted a set of guidelines which was approved by the Boise City Council. Eight months later, on Aug. 17, the public was again invited to weigh in online. Two dozen pages worth of names were submitted, then a total of 89 online votes determined the names for eight trails in the Hillside to Hollow area. They still have to be approved by the City Council, but the list includes names like “Full Sail Trail,” “Buena Vista,” the “West Climb” and “Who-now Loop.” Assuming council members approve, two trails will be named after people: Robert Smylie, for the late Idaho governor; and Kemper’s Ridge, named for Don Kemper, founder and CEO of nonprofit Healthwise, which provides health-related information to hospitals and health care providers. The company’s headquarters sits at the base of Harrison Hollow, part of the Hillside to Hollow trail network. Smylie, who served as Idaho’s chief executive from 1955 to 1967, established the Idaho State Parks and Recreation Department. Much to the delight of Megan Jones, general

manager of Highlands Hollow Brewhouse, one trail will be named “Hippy Shake.” “Hippy Shake is one of our flagship beers,” she said. “It’s a strong-bodied ale, beyond the spectrum of an IPA and one of our first recipes.” Jones has never lived more than a mile from Hill Road and the restaurant has been in her family for decades. She called the trails “sacred” to her family’s business. “I think it’s an honor to have a trail named after our iconic beer,” she said. Now that the Parks and Recreation Commission has approved the suggested names, Arkle is drafting a resolution to submit to the Boise City Council. Signposts are already in place on the trails, waiting for the official names to be added. Once that happens, land managers will start closing a few of the trails to allow for rare and native plant populations to come back and prevent soil erosion. Arkle hopes to get started on those projects this fall. She’s not sure whether the naming process will again be open to the public. “Everyone loves that piece of ground so much,” Arkle said. “I think it’s important that people know that on the back end of a complex and convoluted process, there’s a group of people who really want to do the right thing.”

but there is also a moral compass sustaining her interest in the Pay for Success model. “I‘m doing this work because while I believe that government can’t do everything, we still have an important role to play in complex situations,” she said. “Look. This is fundamental to my belief in how society works. I’m

a Catholic. Did you see Pope Francis in his recent visits to Cuba and the U.S.? He said, ‘Whoever does not live to serve, does not ‘serve’ to live.’ I’m personally informed by that.” Bieter didn’t mention Pay for Success by name during his State of the City address but hinted at something big on the horizon.

“Do we have any choice but to be relentless in our pursuit?” Bieter said. “Look, cities in Idaho have very limited resources, so we have to have our own version of a barn-raising. It’s going to take a lot of partners, but we’re pretty excited about how we’re going to do that. You’ll be hearing a lot more about it in the next 12 months.”


Signs with the new names for the Hillside to Hollow trails will go up on fenceposts as soon as the Boise City Council gives its approval, which is expected sometime this fall.

DR. CHARLOTTE G. BORST History, good fences and Humphrey the bulldog GEORGE PRENTICE New artwork has been arriving at the College of Idaho Administration building. Among the pieces are four photographs of C of I icons: Dr. Mary Allen Callaway, who graduated in 1897 and went on to become one of Idaho’s finest surgeons; and Carrie Blatchley, Julia Finney and Carrie Strahorn, graduates from the late 19th and early 20th centuries who would become integral to the early success of the college—each would each ultimately have campus buildings named in their honor. Dr. Charlotte Borst will likely join those historic ranks someday: In addition to being C of I’s 13th president, she is the 125-year-old university’s first female president. (She took office June 23, but a formal inauguration ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 8 a 1 p.m. in the Jewett Auditorium.) Dr. Borst took some time to talk with Boise Weekly about the significance of serving as C of I’s first female president, how to battle anti-intellectualism and the current state of Idaho’s only private liberal arts college.

Have you ever dove into the conversation of how higher education’s male/female demographic is a more accurate reflection of our nation’s population? It’s an interesting conversation to dive into. Let’s start with the developmental phase of liberal arts education in our nation: It’s a uniquely American model. Interestingly, the Chinese are now interested in it because we produce so many leaders by teaching critical thinking. Yet we see elements of an anti-intellectual bent in many parts of our nation. I’m an historian of science by training. And if we were to look back to the 1960s, we would see a good deal of questioning of authority in America—which was all good in terms of fighting for equal rights—but by the early ’70s, there was also a backlash against science, which later morphed into a form of anti-intellectualism. Do you think fear and/or ignorance fans that flame? Sociologists tell us a professional is somebody with distinct knowledge, and American history points to profound doubting of an elite group that might have some kind of special knowledge. I think many of us would agree some skepticism is healthy, but doubting science and intellectualism makes little sense in our evolution. I came to be a historian because I love science. I don’t think it provides all the answers, but I have no doubt science provides a way of thinking that is clear and rational.

parents would expect me and my three siblings to talk about the issues of the day. My father, a graduate of Harvard, loved rare books and antiques and was an editor for a small publishing company.

PARADISE LOST Parsing the Patriot Movement



s public information officer for III Percent Idaho, it’s Chris McIntire’s job to mould media depictions of his organization—and he’s not afraid to put muscle behind his words. “You can write whatever you want, but I guarantee you this: If it is not in line with the truth, if it is not in line with what we represent, you can expect 2,000 people to crowd these streets to block traffic,” he said in a recent interview. III Percent Idaho and other constitutionalist groups in the so-called Patriot Movement have been front-and-center in media around the country since 2014, when their members traveled long distances to participate in an armed standoff between federal officers and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy. In July, following a shooting at a military recruiting center in Chattanooga, Tenn., groups such as the Oath Keepers and III Percenters stationed themselves at similar recruitment sites throughout the nation in order to provide security for soldiers. In August, an armed contingent of Oath Keepers showed up in Ferguson, Mo., to protect local businesses against looters and property damage amid unrest between residents and police. The same month, Oath

Keepers and III Percent Idaho were in Montana guarding a mine against Forest Service officials seeking to force its closure over non-compliance. Media reports on what patriot groups call their “operations” have centered on the citizen soldiers’ military posturing and rhetoric, with groups like III Percent—which takes its name from the percentage of colonists who participated in the American Revolutionary War—and Oath Keepers finding themselves targets of criticism that their tactics could potentially lead to violence. For McIntire and other patriots who see their activities as apolitical, professional and service oriented, their public image doesn’t reflect who they are. Rather, it reflects broader struggles for the heart of their movement being waged both from within and without. While the news media has portrayed these groups as potentially dangerous, members have said they receive little attention for their service activities. “They want to paint us as white supremacists, they want to paint us as racists, they want to paint us as these bitter clingers to an archaic document that don’t want to move forward, that are culturally closed off, that are intellectually limited. And that’s not true,” McIntire said.

Garcia said his group doesn’t conduct operations in places where they aren’t invited. He said the Oath Keepers traveled to Ferguson to perform a public service—one for which group leaders said it was lambasted in the news. Garcia would prefer the media give more attention to the Oath Keepers’ community engagement, which has included support efforts for firefighters on the Cape Horn Fire at Lake Pend Oreille this summer; working security at church events; and teaching classes on topics like canning, fermentation and sustainable living. The group also hosts marksmanship training exercises and presentations on wilderness survival. For the Oath Keepers of Bonner County, the group’s emphasis is on the classes, which are routinely attended by 35-50 people. “We are doing a lot of great things and it seems that the media doesn’t want to pick up on it or hear about it. What can we do as an organization to help foster this rebranding of who we are as an organization?” he said. Classes hosted by Oath Keepers, Garcia said, highlight the political and social diversity of the Bonner County Oath Keepers. Rather than the violent, racist organization sometimes portrayed in the media, he would like the public to see the environmentalists and liberals who learn about sustainable gardening, canning and other skills through a constitutionalist service organization. “I think if we weren’t Oath Keepers, you’d see that we have a lot in common with a lot of people on the left with regards to sustainable living,” he said. Many Patriot Movement groups engage in similar activities. III Percent Idaho will join Riders Against Domestic Abuse and Rape in Get a Clue—a scavenger game at Lakeview Park in Nampa on Saturday, Oct. 10 as part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. III Percent and Oath Keepers have also coordinated in north Idaho to collect items like food, water and clothing in areas affected by fire. McIntire indicated III Percent considers constitutionalist activism its central function—from upholding property rights against illegal search and seizure to defending the right to bear arms. “We make sure—we make damn sure—that everyone’s First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth—all of the amendments— are upheld. Anywhere from property rights, freedom of speech, the ability to carry a weapon,” he said. Garcia’s efforts are aided by the peculiar politics of the Idaho panhandle. There, the legacy of Ruby Ridge is still fresh. According to Burghart, the value of individualism and skepticism of the government have contributed to a broad understanding and acceptance of Patriot Movement ideals. In north Idaho, a mix of former Militia Movement members, anarchists, disenchanted Republicans, rugged individualists and members of a curious public have engaged with the Patriot Movement, and observers worry it will be impossible to avoid future conflict. The Patriot Movement has already trained its guns on law enforcement, and some fear it has been put on a collision course with the government. “That’s a pretty dangerous line to start crossing, and unless folks within those movements start standing up and saying, ‘That’s unacceptable,’ we’re going to see a lot more of that kind of activity happening, like in the 1990s,” Burghart said.

ARTS & CULTURE SHINING A LIGHT ON LED Lauren Edson and Andrew Stensaas, founders of dance collective LED, on Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald, relationships and “ushering in new technologies” HARRISON BERRY A marriage of artists can be rife with jealousy and warring egos. It can also lead to inspiration and collaboration. For choreographer-dancer Lauren Edson and musician Andrew Stensaas, saying “I do” was followed by “we do,” and gave rise to the creation of art collective, LED. On Saturday, Oct. 10, LED will debut at the Morrison Center with This Side of Paradise, a dance/music performance based on the lives of artistic giants Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Having returned to Boise after a summer on tour, Edson and Stensaas discussed This Side of Paradise, how LED differs from their previous projects and where LED will lead them. How did you arrive at the theme of the Fitzgeralds? Stensaas: I’ve been a big fan of F. Scott Fitzgerald. It’s what swayed me into reading as a high-school student. From there, it’s just delving in and researching their relationship. There’s such an incredible drama in their personal lives that’s applicable to artists of today. Edson: I think it’s interesting to read their letters and see them coexisting as artists and navigating that together. What’s great is to imagine how their relationship might have been and having it not be a period piece, taking themes that are relevant today like celebrity and fame and infidelity. You mentioned parallels between the Fitzgeralds’ relationship and your own. Edson: We are lucky. As collaborators, it has been a pretty easy thing. We discovered we can collaborate together and collaborate well. There are frustrations. We started LED, we had our baby and created This Side of Paradise. What makes it a unique collaboration is it’s not that I’m on my island creating and he’s on his island creating: There’s a constant dialogue. Stensaas: They mainly run into the running of an arts organization. Whether it’s my nonchalant-ness toward certain things or her on-top-of-it, go-get-’em attitude toward certain things, we’ve helped each other grow in that way. 14 | OCTOBER 7–13, 2015 | BOISEweekly

Lauren Edson (left) and Andrew Stensaas (right) combine dance, music and marriage to bring the oversized lives of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald to the big stage at the Morrison Center.

How do you portray the Fitzgeralds through music and dance? Edson: Trying to capture the idiosyncrasies of Zelda, having her continuously walking this line between control and wild abandon. I’ve given dancers tasks to help them try to physicalize what’s going on. There have been times when we’ve done writing assignments to find a vocabulary that feels like it rests within that character’s being. It’s not just a gymnastic feat. Stensaas: Zelda was much more of a socialite. But we wanted to capture some sense of isolation within herself. When we start off, I’m the only musician on stage playing to some pre-recorded tracks as it develops, and then the band comes in. It’s a little bit of coming out of the shell. For F. Scott ... it’s funk and soul, which are the genres we chose, and to really make it feel like an emotional, fun-packed train wreck.

Dancers and LED? Edson: Lauren Edson + Dancers was really created out of necessity because I had been asked to participate in some festivals in New York and Houston. Andrew and I talked, even before we were married, about starting a collaborative arts organization. We are also commissioning artists coming to Boise to create. We’re going to be creating but hiring artists on a project-by-project basis, and then commission artists to come to Boise. Stensaas: We’re also bringing in visual artists. We want to usher in new technologies. There’s projection mapping that’s visible in European countries and Asian countries, and there are a lot of cool things to be done. You’re able to see these things happen live in front of you.

What’s next for LED? Edson: We’ve been talking to Eric Gilbert at Treefort to have some involvement with that that feels more like a mainstage show. I’ve been talking How much do audiences need to know about F. Scott and Zelda to enjoy this piece? with a choreographer from Israel to commission work for her to come up. I want to bring in Edson: People won’t have to know anything other choreographers to be able to dance their about the Fitzgeralds to get something from it. Stensaas: But they will get a lot from it if they work. But we’re going to do Treefort and a small do because they’re historically accurate depictions northwest tour. Stensaas: We’re looking at a few different of these people. people for this projection mapping to bring in. Maybe it’s something that’s going to happen with What’s the relevance of the Fitzgeralds’ Lauren and I and a small band, but we’re going to relationship today? Stensaas: I think the creation of this work and talk with some projection artists. Things of that nature that can be explored. I like the technology comparing these generations is special.

Step through the door into an artist’s private studio and you will see that artist’s mind at work. It’s an incredible once-ayear opportunity for avid collectors and anyone who is curious about the artmaking process. A glance around a studio is enormously informative. You will see what tools the artist reaches for. You may see swatches that have been chosen for a fiber arts project; the latest experimental combination of color and texture; even older work tucked away in a dusty corner. BOSCO artists are happy to share stories about their work and the unexpected directions their artistic journey has taken them in. Things you might never learn about from a gallery visit or by reading an artist’s biography. Most BOSCO artists work in studios located in or close to their homes. Be it in the heart of downtown or around the bend and up the hill, each studio is a bright spot of inspiration and productivity. A thoroughly intriguing place to visit. We look forward to welcoming you to our favorite places, our studios.

The world is full of bastards.

A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT Beyond tying flies and deciding which will best catch trout in the river, there’s a lot to be learned from fly fishing. Norman Maclean’s classic memoir, A River Runs Through It, shares the lessons he learned growing up in western Montana under the strict parenting of a minister. Every morning was spent in religious study but the afternoons allowed for an escape to the Blackfoot River. Thanks to Boise Classic Movies, you can skip the 250 pages and instead enjoy the artful film adaptation at the Egyptian Theatre on Thursday, Oct. 8. As Maclean writes, “the world is full of bastards, the number increasing rapidly the further one gets from Missoula, Montana.” Luckily, Boise isn’t too far away. 7 p.m., $9/$11.

The Hoot Hoots might seem like a bunch of good-natured goofballs, but there’s some serious power in their pop. The Seattlebased quartet’s rocking, anthemic sound has the feel of a spontaneous summer road trip or kick-ass backyard barbecue. Joining the Hoot Hoots at the recently remodeled and restored Olympic Venue (above Mulligans) is Wartime Blues, a six-member band that writes its style of Americana against a backdrop of the Clark Fork River, the mouth of Hellgate Canyon and the mountains of Missoula, Mont. Rough-and-rugged Montana culture converges with college town quirk in Wartime’s music, resulting in experimental folk that incorporates a cello, mandolin, keys and swayable harmonies. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention Boise Weekly’s own former calendar guru/web guy Sam Hill will also grace the stage that night. He describes his so far nameless band as “Hmmm… idk, indie rock pop something or other. Some folk in there, too.” —Jessica Murri

JOSH RITTER, OCT. 11, THE RECORD EXCHANGE Boise is often seen as an anomaly. People who’ve never been here wonder why everyone from world-renowned dancers, musicians and authors to venture capitalists and tech giants choose to live in Boise. “Quality of life” is the pat answer but in reality, it’s an intangible not easily defined and is what brings a number of artists who don’t even live here anymore to come back to the City of Trees with new creative projects. Josh Ritter, one of Boise’s (and Idaho’s) favorite sons, is also one of our favorite artists and the feeling must be mutual, because on Sunday, Oct. 11, Ritter returns home and to the Record Exchange stage with his new release, Sermon on the Rocks (Pytheas Recordings, Oct. 16). Ritter’s in-store performance is his only show in town and not only will hometown fans get to hear Sermon, they can purchase it before its official release date. With each new release, the down-to-earth Ritter shoots even further into the stratosphere and his Record Exchange in-stores are a rare opportunity to see him live in such a casual, intimate setting—one of those intangibles. —Amy Atkins 4 p.m., FREE.

SKYY INFUSIONS TEXAS GRAPEFRUIT, $18.95 Released in January, Skyy Infusions Texas Grapefruit joins a long line of fruit-flavored spirits from this San Francisco distillery. Candied grapefruit flavors dominate the nose—think liquid Starburst, Squirt, Tang—and the palate continues the sweet-fest, with powdered grapefruit and a notably sugary finish. ABSOLUT RUBY RED GRAPEFRUIT VODKA, $21.95 Made from winter wheat in the town of Ahus, Sweden, Absolut’s flavored vodkas don’t use any added sweeteners. That makes the nose on Absolut’s Ruby Red much less cartoonish—one taster picked up citrus peel, pine and juniper. The palate is grapefruit and vodka; “It smells real and tastes real,” added another panelist. DEEP EDDY RUBY RED GRAPEFRUIT VODKA, $18.95 Deep Eddy’s is the only grapefruit vodka we tasted that’s distilled in Texas, and the only one with color. Distilled 10 times using corn, Deep Eddy’s classic vodka is then blended with real grapefruit juice. This 35 percent ABV sipper pours a viscous pink with straightforward grapefruit juice notes on the nose. The palate boasts plenty of tart to counter the sweet. “It tastes like booze with citrus juice,” said one taster; “Dangerlicious,” added another. —Tara Morgan 24 | OCTOBER 7–13, 2015 | BOISEweekly



A hybrid of the pomelo and sweet orange, the grapefruit was discovered by Europeans in the West Indies in the 1700s. Today, the United States is the world’s second largest producer of the citrus fruit. Texas is famous for its Ruby Red grapefruit—pink-fleshed orbs that ripen extra sweet over long, hot summer nights. Texas red grapefruit, the official state fruit, is harvested October through May. To celebrate the harvest, we sampled three red grapefruit vodkas.

CHATEAU DE FLEURS New Eagle event space includes farm-to-table restaurant Le Coq d’Or TARA MORGAN Chateau de Fleurs has only a few fleurs at this phase of the project. Aside from a row of concrete frogs waiting to spit streams of water into an empty reservoir, the Eagle event center’s garden is mostly a mound of dirt. That will all change by next spring, said creative director Roshan Roghani, when the grounds will be transformed into a lush space with swaths Chef Frank Bacquet said Le Coq d’Or will feature a menu of French favorites that change with the seasons, and of grass for outdoor weddings, plenty of flowers, service that harkens to an earlier, more liesurely age. grape trellises and herbs.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): If I warned you not to trust anyone, I hope you would reject my simplistic fear-mongering. If I suggested that you trust everyone unconditionally, I hope you would dismiss my delusional naiveté. It’s important to acknowledge the smart approach is far more difficult than those two extremes. You have to evaluate each person and each situation on a case-by-case basis. There may be unpredictable folks who are trustworthy some of the time, but not always. Can you be both affably open-hearted and slyly discerning? It’s especially important that you do so in the next 16 days. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): As I meditated on your astrological aspects, I had an intuition that I should go to a gem fair I’d heard about. It was at an event center near my home. When I arrived, I was dazzled to find a vast spread of minerals, fossils, gemstones and beads. Within a few minutes, two stones had commanded my attention, as if they’d reached out to me telepathically: chrysoprase, a green gemstone; and petrified wood, a mineralized fossil streaked with earth tones. The explanatory note next to the chrysoprase said that if you keep this gem close to you, it “helps make conscious what has been unconscious.” Ownership of the petrified wood was described as conferring “the power to remove

obstacles.” I knew these were the exact oracles you needed. I bought both stones, took them home, and put them on an altar dedicated to your success in the coming weeks. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): George R. R. Martin has written a series of fantasy novels collectively called A Song of Ice and Fire. They have sold 60 million copies and been adapted for the HBO series Game of Thrones. Martin says the inspiration for his master work originated with the pet turtles he owned as a kid. The creatures lived in a toy castle in his bedroom, and he pretended they were knights and kings and other royal characters. “I made up stories about how they killed each other and betrayed each other and fought for the kingdom,” he has testified. I think the next seven months will be a perfect time for you to make a comparable leap, Gemini. What’s your version of Martin’s turtles? And what valuable asset can you turn it into? CANCER (June 21-July 22): The editors of the Urban Dictionary provide a unique definition of the word “outside.” They say it’s a vast, uncomfortable place that surrounds your home. It has no ceiling or walls or carpets, and contains annoying insects and random loud noises. There’s a big yellow ball in the sky that’s always moving around and changing the temperature in inconvenient ways.

28 | OCTOBER 7–13, 2015 | BOISEweekly

Even worse, the “outside” is filled with strange people who are constantly doing deranged and confusing things. Does this description match your current sense of what “outside” means, Cancerian? If so, that’s OK. For now, enjoy the hell out of being inside. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): We all go through phases when we are tempted to believe in the factuality of every hostile, judgmental and random thought that our monkey mind generates. I am not predicting that this is such a time for you, but I do want to ask you to be extra skeptical toward your monkey mind’s fabrications. Right now it’s especially important that you think as coolly and objectively as possible. You can’t afford to be duped by anyone’s crazy talk, including your own. Be extra vigilant in your quest for the raw truth. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Do you know about the ancient Greek general Pyrrhus? At the Battle of Asculum in 279 BCE, his army technically defeated Roman forces, but his casualties were so substantial he lost the war. You can and you must avoid a comparable scenario. Fighting for your cause is good only if it doesn’t wreak turmoil and bewilderment. If you want to avoid an outcome in which both sides lose, you’ve got to engineer a result in which both sides win.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): If I could give you a birthday present, it would be a map to your future treasure. Do you know what treasure I’m referring to? Think about it as you fall asleep on the next eight nights. I’m sorry I can’t simply provide you with the instructions you’d need to locate it. The cosmic powers tell me you have not yet earned that right. The secondbest gift I can offer, then, will be clues about how to earn it. Clue No. 1, Meditate on the differences between what your ego wants and what your soul needs. No. 2, Ask yourself, “What is the most unripe part of me?” then devise a plan to ripen it. No. 3, Invite your mind to give you insights you haven’t been brave enough to work with until now. No. 4, Take one medium-sized bold action every day. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Galway Kinnell’s poem “Middle of the Way” is about his solo trek through the snow on Oregon’s Mount Gauldy. As he wanders in the wilderness, he remembers an important truth about himself: “I love the day, the sun ... But I know [that] half my life belongs to the wild darkness.” According to my reading of the astrological omens, Scorpio, now is a good time for you, too, to refresh your awe and reverence for the wild darkness—and to recall half your life belongs to it. Doing so will bring you another experience Kinnell describes: “an

inexplicable sense of joy, as if some happy news had been transmitted to me directly, bypassing the brain.”

The moral of the story might be to get in closer contact with your roots. Or be more attentive to your support system. Or buy new shoes and underwear.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The last time I walked into a McDonald’s and ordered a meal was 1984. Nothing that the restaurant chain serves up is appealing to my taste or morality. I do admire its adaptability, however. In cow-loving India, McDonald’s only serves vegetarian fare that includes deep-fried cheese and potato patties. In Israel, kosher McFalafels are available. Mexicans order their McMuffins with refried beans and pico de gallo. At a McDonald’s in Singapore, you can order McRice burgers. This is the type of approach I advise for you right now, Sagittarius. Adjust your offerings for your audience.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I haven’t planted a garden for years. My workload is too intense to devote enough time to that pleasure. So eight weeks ago I was surprised when a renegade sunflower began blooming in the dirt next to my porch. How did the seed get there? Via the wind? A passing bird that dropped a potential meal? The gorgeous interloper eventually grew to a height of four feet and produced a boisterous yellow flower head. Every day I muttered a prayer of thanks for its guerrilla blessing. I predict a comparable phenomenon for you in the coming days, Aquarius.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have been flirting with your “alone at the top” reveries. I won’t be surprised if one night you have a dream of riding on a Ferris wheel that malfunctions, leaving you stranded at the highest point. What’s going on? Here’s what I suspect: In one sense you are zesty and farseeing. Your competence and confidence are waxing. At the same time, you may be out of touch with what’s going on at ground level. Your connection to the depths is not as intimate as your relationship with the heights.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): The coming days will be a favorable time to dig up what has been buried. You can discover hidden agendas, expose deceptions, see beneath the masks and dissolve delusions. But it’s my duty to ask you this: Is that really something you want to do? It would be fun and sexy to liberate so much trapped emotion and suppressed energy, but it could also stir up a mindbending ruckus that propels you on a healing quest. I hope you decide to go for the gusto, but understand if you prefer to play it safe. BOISE WEEKLY.COM

BOISEweekly | OCTOBER 7–13, 2015 | 29





DEAR MINERVA, As a 30-year-old man, is it ageist of me not to want to date a man who is almost 20 years my senior and who is still in the closet? Is it wrong that I just feel like the differences are too much? I don’t want to be discriminatory but I am truly not feeling it. —Young and I love to be young.

DEAR YOUNG, Honey lamb, if you aren’t feeling it, you aren’t feeling it. Never force something your instincts are telling you isn’t right. While I am a firm believer that age is just a number (ie: a boring and tiresome subject) and I have things in common with people of all ages, some people cannot see themselves dating someone considerably older. That is perfectly fine. We all have preferences and no one can let political correctness rule their love life. We love who we love. If you aren’t into someone that much older, let him down easy. Someday that may very well be you reaching out to someone younger who you find attractive and you would want them to be merciful in their rejection. As for him not being out of the closet, that is a much bigger red flag than his age. It is hard to go into a relationship with someone who hasn’t come to terms with their sexuality. After all, confidence and authenticity are attractive at every age.

While everybody’s all hot to trot over Mars, it’s good to remember the days when the moon was all the rage. For years, a collection of historic photographs chronicling the early space program has been quietly building online, featuring images taken from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Kennedy and Johnson space centers, and scanned for the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, edited by Eric Jones and Ken Glover. The site bills itself as “the world-wide web’s most extensive collection of high-quality Apollo images,” and we’re not about to doubt the claim. by mission and chive/albums meticulously catalogued, we wouldn’t want to hazard a guess at how many shots are included in the library. Some are well known but most are not, including candids of astronauts, never-before-seen images of space flight and any number of snapshots of equipment and technology. Among the most stunning are thousands of (mostly color) high-resolution images uploaded to Flickr last month ( photos/projectapolloarchive/albums). If you’re on the space-nerd bandwagon, the Project Apollo Archive is stellar viewing. —Zach Hagadone
