EDITOR’S NOTE HAPPY THANKSGIVING There has been a lot of bad, heavy news lately, and it feels like we’re in for more. Everyone’s Facebook etiquette has been abandoned—I’m as guilty as anyone—and you can almost feel the bitter Thanksgiving family fights brewing. Hopefully, there’s another way. Hopefully, we can take at least a few moments this week to reflect on civility and empathy, and consider how we can help each other out rather than shout each other down. In this week’s edition of Boise Weekly, we cover a few topics related to community, connection and compassion. First, on Page 6, BW News Editor George Prentice checks in with a handful of downtown Boise merchants who go the extra mile to build loyalty with customers and camaraderie with businesses that would otherwise be considered competitors. On Page 7, staff writer Jessica Murri profiles a new partnership that benefits kids, prison inmates, the Boise Bicycle Project and Idaho Department of Correction. It’s an example of the good that can be done when organizations look beyond their normal sources of support and focus on a common good. It’s also a welcome move by IDOC, which is working hard to correct years of systemic mistakes and abuses that landed the department on the losing side of a federal court ruling and earned it barrels of ink in embarrassing headlines. On Page 8, Prentice interviews National Endowment for the Arts Chairman Jane Chu and Idaho Commission on the Arts Executive Director Michael Faison, who describe how support for the arts not only brings people together but helps make communities more prosperous. Chu’s background includes refugees working for a better life, making her story all the more timely and important. No matter how angrily we disagree—and for a picture of those tensions, look no further than staff writer Harrison Berry’s exquisite reporting on Pages 6-7—it’s necessary for us to share stories of people helping each other, lest we forget we’re social animals, and it’s easier to be kind than not. —Zach Hagadone

TIPPING POINTS Thanksgiving for liberals BILL COPE Let us call tomorrow the midpoint of the 2016 presidential campaign. That’s not as arbitrary as it might sound. Looking forward, we have just more than 11 months until Election Day. Eleven months ago was the day after Christmas 2014. Even though Ted Cruz, the first to enter the race officially, announced his candidacy in late March of this year, Rick Perry hinted we might see him in another presidential race as early as July 2013. Everyone has known for years that Cruz and Clinton, Paul, Jindal and Huckabee, would run. In the months preceding their announcements, they were all lining up donors, campaign teams, ground support, planning their strategy, calculating their chances... so, averaged out, tomorrow is as good a day as any to call the midpoint to this national hubbub. As it falls on Thanksgiving, would it not be propitious moment to relax, take stock and count our blessings? There is clearly a lot of tension in the American air, and for good reason. It’s not merely the presidency we’re all—Dem and Rep—nervous about. There is so much more: the future of the Supreme Court, of “Citizens United,” of abortion rights and voting rights and labor rights, education, health care, America’s standing in the community of nations... and more. Yet there is much to encourage us, too, and I come today to remind you of those bright spots on the approaching horizon. (But not if you are conservative. I’m warning conservatives right now that perhaps you’d best not read any further. I don’t want to get you all disgruntled and nasty on Thanksgiving Day, so why don’t you go see if there’s a football game you can watch on teevee, or maybe a turkey that needs beheading.) Especially during times like these, when the news is so preoccupied with bombast and bullshit, we tend to overlook the incremental changes happening around us. Unless we are directly involved in those changes, either as activists or beneficiaries of the activism, they slip by, often without notice, until a tipping point is reached. Take the LGBT rights movement. Had you told me 20 years ago... even 10... that gays and lesbians would be allowed marriage equality anytime soon, I would have laughed in your face and suggested you take a taxi home. Ah, but look what’s happened. Piece by piece, the framework was put in place and once the states started turning, the obstructions came tumbling down with remarkable speed. Same-sex marriage reality a decade ago?... Not in my lifetime! Same-sex marriage reality today?... Done deal! I can’t honestly say I know why this issue flipped over so quickly, but in my mind, the biggest and most palpable shift wasn’t in the
courts or state legislatures or social media, but in the hearts and minds of the American majority. Without it, the new reality wouldn’t exist. Here are some other matters that have tacked away from a long-held conservative course and picked up a progressive wind in their sails. Legalization of marijuana is such an obvious example, I don’t need to waste any more words on it. But can you feel the tide turn on animal welfare reform? Scoff at animal activists for their naivete if you will, but whatever they’re doing is taking hold in large parts of the country. Example: the end of turning orcas into 6-ton circus clowns, as recently decided by SeaWorld. That didn’t happen because SeaWorld execs were afraid of PETA. It happened because audiences showed with their lagging attendance they are no longer so interested in the show as they are the animal. Once people start understanding the intrinsic worth of one creature, it’s a short step to seeing the value in all creatures. Take note, corporate agriculture. Prison reform, another longtime smoking ember that has turned into a steady flame. And this flame is being fanned bipartisanly. Even the Kochs are for it. I hope you don’t own a lot of stock in private corrections corporations, because my guess is they are soon to be cinders. Minimum wage reform is on the march, city by city... state by state. I don’t suggest anyone hold their breath until Idaho follows Seattle down the path from laughable wage to livable wage, but let us thank the gods that Idaho really doesn’t count when it comes to anything important. What’s more, don’t be surprised to see unionized fast food workers all across America within another decade. Global warming awareness has taken a turn for the better. All the slung mud about it being an international environmentalist hoax is no longer sticking, mostly because the weather isn’t cooperating with the slingers. Finally, the reform of gun regulation is coming and any politician who stands in the way of such sane and sensible policies as universal background checks will soon find his NRA approval ratings won’t help him—not against the will of the American electorate. That’s the way it works, friends. In the longrun, what the American people don’t want to happen, won’t. When they change their minds on any particular policy, so does the policy. On issue after issue, Americans are settling into a liberal resolution, and once you’ve understood the intrinsic value of a liberal attitude on enough individual issues, you will understand the intrinsic folly of ever following a conservative path again. Happy Thanksgiving. BOISE WEEKLY.COM
OPINION FROM THE FAR MARGINS Bullets or bread? NICOLE LEFAVOUR Snow falls in Boise, and I write from the edge of somewhere. I write from a place of exile or distance, but I am not alone. We are the margins, the women, the homeless, the ample, the poor, the awkward young, the ones who are told we are godless, the genderless, the gay, the brown, black, the speakers of musical languages, staccato words, the otherwise able, the depressed, the hopeful, the wild, the different, the ones who want peace. We may sleep under bridges, in motorhomes, in houses with cold walls or mansions empty but for our heat, but we are awake and stirring. We may work at being warm, at feeding those we love, at managing human wants, human needs, at triage; at balancing, at death beds, at waiting tables, but we listen and often we find ourselves at the edge of our city looking in. The world rocks with ripples spread by terror, shudders at the violence. The nearest, most comfortable feel it most intensely, the shock. Many live in terror of other kinds already. This terror is another layer, a separate sadness, a separate burr beneath the skin, working its way to the heart. Like standing in the wake of a hate crime, some feel, “That was meant for me.” Others know it was not, know they are safe even if people they love are not. It’s like a woman who’s been hit once. Being struck then is forever-after a possibility, a shadow at the edge of every move, every harsh word. Some respond in anger. The world is divided between those who long for revenge, for whom anger is an emotion closer to the surface than sadness. So often the extremes of political party lines or even gender seem to sketch this out—the line between one human archetype and another. And we can’t fathom how the half other functions? Why hate? Why violence? Why lie down and cry? Why love one who hates you? This is age-old. From the margins, the world goes on. I open a New Yorker magazine set on a college library table and there is a world there I once knew, stage plays and restaurants, food as art, words of the educated, vocabulary beyond what I use any more. I feel like an urchin in a window, smiling at the vicarious moment. Looking in makes some feel hate. Perhaps if you have striven for something that you are intentionally denied, anger is a reasonable response. I am cool with a certain degree of disparity, but I do not tolerate those who disdain those of us looking in, those who close the shutters or chain-link the underpass to make our sleeping more invisible. We have choices. We can work to make the world more hateful. That part is easy: turn off the BOISE WEEKLY.COM
TV, filter your newsfeed, don’t turn down that street again, don’t listen to NPR. Or we can work to make those who hate us less hateful. Hate is born of fear. It is hard to hate someone who reaches out in kindness, who gives or acknowledges your pain. I would say this to the police, to mayors and presidential candidates, to our President Barack Obama and to French President François Hollande. But who am I to warn the mourning that the bombs will fall on children and that bombs teach people to hate. They create terrorists. They do. They did. I was never a fan of drones. They seem like an evil of their own. The extreme opposite of a suicide attack. In one, everything is risked and given. In the other, nothing is. If we see terror like a sickness or cancer, we believe in human evil and human brokenness. We might cut off a limb or not carefully choose what cells to take. Our haste and inability to discern is why we fill our prisons with people guilty of nothing but addiction, unmedicated mental unwellness. No one revels at being given the charge of protecting society. With that charge so many err to overprotection, thus creating more brokenness in families, more hate in those facing cruel and unusual punishment, more crime. When we have power, we are often not brave enough to walk the line of justice carefully, judiciously, with thought to the repercussions. Largely that is because the political divide created by partisanship makes us jump to blame our leaders. Or the leaders of the other political stripe who might be in charge. We have to be brave. Wise. Our human rush to anger and revenge is the death of us. The death of us all. Our rush to love is our grace, our survival. If we consider brokenness inevitable—that some small portion of it is spontaneous, infectious and unstoppable—then we know the world we have can either roil with hate or settle down to active and calculated peace. When we hold out our hand, will it hold a gun or a loaf of bread? Which will save more of us? Protect us from violence tomorrow? I would say the bread—the story of the bread will travel. It is a gesture that blurs the margins, folds the outside to the center, makes it no longer invisible. The bread will give us peace, keep us safer, warmer. Isn’t it harder to recruit soldiers to kill the ones who offered bread?

UNDA’ THE ROTUNDA
NEWS SANTA, SECRET SALES AND SOCKS Downtown Boise merchants’ Christmas lists GEORGE PRENTICE
“The story of Jesus is a story of radical love.”
REFUGEE SUPPORT FILLS STATEHOUSE STEPS The tension between demonstrators who turned out to support—and oppose—admitting Syrian refugees to Idaho had mounted for more than an hour, but when Shay Primrose took the microphone at the top of the Idaho State Capitol steps and performed a ukelele rendition of “O Holy Night,” people on both sides of Jefferson Street sang along. “I was inspired by the second verse,” Primrose said afterward. “The story of Jesus is a story of radical love.” Estimates differ on how many people participated in the Nov. 21 rallies, but the dividing lines between them were distinct. On the Capitol side of Jefferson Street was the vast majority of demonstrators, waving signs welcoming refugees. They delivered speeches, sang songs and recited poetry in celebration of a version of America that welcomes the downtrodden. On the other side, a much smaller—though no less vocal—crowd gathered to press for more screening of incoming refugees and more resources for Idaho’s veterans and homeless populations. “Why should my taxes go to Syrians before Idahoans?” said David Pettinger. The demonstration and counter-demonstration were capstones to a long year for the issue of refugees in Idaho. It began with two ballot measures currently gathering signatures in Twin Falls County that, if successful, would close the College of Southern Idaho Refugee Center. Proponents say the referenda halt Twin Falls’ intake of potentially dangerous refugees coming from war-torn regions like Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Opponents say the ballot push is xenophobic at best and illegal at worst. Pressure on the refugee center became so intense, CSI held a community forum featuring Ofﬁce of Refugee Admissions Director Larry Bartlett and Refugee Center Director Zeze Rwasama in September. In the wake of deadly terrosit attacks in Paris Nov. 13, fears were stoked worldwide. The self-declared “Islamic State” later claimed responsibility for the attack. In response to the attack and drawing on citizen input against refugee resettlement, Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter wrote to President Barack Obama urging him to halt the intake of refugees pending an audit of the program, which Otter reiter7 ated during a conference call including more than 30 governors.
Sorry, Hillary Clinton, but a number of downtown merchants don’t think it takes a village—and by village, they mean The Village, the 500,000-plus square feet of super-shopping in Meridian about to enter its second holiday season. Besides, Boise shopkeepers say, they wouldn’t even want their stores near The Village or Boise Towne Square Mall, now in its 27th year. “Our store is a reflection of downtown Boise and vice versa,” said Kent Collins, owner of Flying M Coffeehouse on the corner of Idaho and Fifth streets. “Besides, I don’t think we would get away with a lot of the… hmm, let’s say ‘unique’ gifts that we offer if we were at The Village or the mall.” Cindy Beauclair, owner of Dragonfly, whis is around the corner from Flying M at 462 Main St., couldn’t agree more. “The Village? Puh-leez. And the mall? I can tell you that when we were looking to buy our Main Street building in downtown Boise—and that was 25 ADAM RO SENLUND years ago—some young consultant told us that we had to go out to the mall and the No. 1 reason some downtown retail won’t be to absolutely not invest in downtown.

He’s as genuine as even an expired parking meter can’t dampen the holiday spirit at Dragonfly. the day is long,” she said. “We are the other end “What can I say? Everybody’s happy. Our of the spectrum from the mall or The Village. For customers even bring us goodies on Christmas us, it’s less about the sale and more about doing what we want really well. Yes, we’ve heard of a lot Eve.

rhinos, hippos and, again, unicorns. “What’s popular? Definitely the jewelry and socks are huge,” he said. At Dragonfly, the sock corner is Beauclair’s favorite area of the store. “This is our sock wall,” she said, pointing to the hundreds of men’s and women’s socks, including a pair sporting the phrase “Carpe the F***k Out Of This Diem.” “Now I ask you, how many places are you going to find these?” Beauclair said. “There isn’t a day here where we’re not laughing. It’s more fun than work.” That couldn’t make the Downtown Boise Association happier. The postrecession downtown Boise landscape is rapidly evolving, and Karlee May, DBA membership manager, said “it’s all good.” When Macy’s shuttered its downtown Boise location in 2010, the immediate reaction was to find another big box store to replace the retailer’s significant footprint. As time passed, downtown Boise has learned to live—some would say thrive—in spite of the loss. “It doesn’t hurt to get a big, anchor store for downtown, but it’s not the end of the world if we don’t,” said May. “This year, we’re pretty sure that we’ve got just about everything for anyone’s Christmas list: furniture, clothes, the home, kitchen, you name it.” The DBA also tries to fill downtown merchants’ stockings with plenty of events to help lure customers, beginning with Small Business Saturday on Nov. 28; First Thursday on Dec. 3, which May says is, by far, the most successful First Thursday of the year; a downtown home for Santa Claus at D.L. Evans Bank at Ninth and Main streets every Saturday through Christmas; and some gorgeous designs adorning store windows. “This year, we’ll have 20 different artists decorating more than a couple dozen different storefronts,” said May. “They’re really something. We’ll unveil them on the First Thursday of December.” At Bandana, the Harrises have decided their once-a-year sale will fall on First Thursday, Dec. 3. “It’s a bit of a secret, but we can tell your readers,” said Shannon. “You name it, we’ll be discounting our items that day. I bake homemade goodies for a week preparing for that. We do some special gift-wrapping, and it’s a pretty special feeling that you can only get downtown. I’m getting in the mood just thinking about it.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM
Boise Bicycle Project looks to Idaho prisons for help fixing bikes
“The reason there’s racism is because there’s an us-versus-them mentality.”
JESSICA MURRI Every morning, Boise Bicycle Project Executive Director Jimmy Hallyburton’s alarm goes off at 6:30. Before he does anything else, he grabs a legal notepad and fills three pages with reflections, ideas and goals. He circles his daily goal and keeps it at the forefront of his mind all day. As bike donations at the Boise Bicycle Project continue to pile up faster than Hallyburton and his crew can fix and hand them out to children in need, one particular idea kept emerging in his daily free writes. “We really want to maximize our space here and get as many bikes out to people as possible, so while trying to figure out a storage solution we thought about having them fixed somewhere else,” Hallyburton said. “Who could be fixing the bikes?” At the same time, Hallyburton kept running into another challenge: recently released inmates from the Idaho Department of Correction coming in to get a bicycle, but they either couldn’t afford one or didn’t qualify for BBP’s programs. “We started to wonder if we could solve our storage problem, solve a problem of getting bicycles for prisoners and then also try to figure out a way where they can contribute to our program and get more bikes to kids,” he said. “We came up with a win-win-win scenario.” Hallyburton’s idea is to take 10-20 kids’ bikes to the prison southeast of Boise once a week and spend two hours helping inmates patch flat tires, replace rusted chains and adjust brakes. Eventually, he hopes the prisoners can fix the bikes without him. IDOC Director Kevin Kempf couldn’t be more thrilled with the idea. “This just fits perfectly with what we want to do,” he said. “As a corrections system, we want to partner with the community. We know our inmates and our staff will be super excited about this. I just see it as a win-win.” On a recent Tuesday morning tour of the Boise Bicycle Project, Kempf was impressed by the hundreds of bikes stacked head-high in the nonprofit’s small backyard. The organization received 89 bikes on Sunday, Nov. 15 alone. Hallyburton explained the problem: with so many donations, the bikes stay stacked on top BOISE WEEKLY.COM
At the demonstration, safety was a rallying point for Mike Dennis, of Caldwell, who said the refugees from Syria currently being admitted into the United States were young men “of ﬁghting age” and the attacks in Paris should be a lesson to the United States. “We’re welcoming in an army to attack us,” he said. “Look in the media.” Talk like that, said Boise State University student Megan Freeman, could make America more vulnerable. “The rhetoric of terrorism is to propel a movement like we have on the other side [of the street],” she said. Richard Heinzcarried a sign bearing crossedout swastikas that read: “Refugees welcome to stay/ Racists welcome to leave.” He added he didn’t think the people on the other side of the street were racists, but that didn’t mean racism wasn’t playing a role in their demonstration. “Most likely, the majority of them aren’t racists,” he said. “The reason there’s racism is because there’s an us-versus-them mentality.” Counter-protest members denied there was a racial component to their demonstration. “This isn’t about hate,” said III Percent of Idaho Public Information Ofﬁcer Chris McIntire to the demonstration on the Capitol steps while calling for a moment of silence for veterans. The group he represents played a key role in organizing the the counter-protest. III Percent of Idaho, however, was what attracted Southern Poverty Law Center correspondent David Neiwert to the demonstration. Neiwert said he has tracked militia and extremist groups since the 1990s, and Patriot Movement groups like III Percent and Oath Keepers have strong ties to militia groups he has studied in the past. “The whole idea of III Percent is a second American Revolution,” he said. People on both sides of Jefferson Street had strong words, but Boise State student and Muslim Student Association Vice President Noora Muhamad, an Iraqi refugee from Kurdistan who came to America as an infant, was able to cut through the noise. As chants of “America ﬁrst” threatened to drown out her speech, she drew cheers when she said, “I know you guys say ‘Idaho First,’ but I believe ‘People First.’” “I grew up learning to be open-minded and strong and independent,” she said. —Harrison Berry 6

of each other and it takes months to get to the bottom of the piles. By then, the bikes at the bottom are so rusted from the elements, they often have to be parted out. “We need to get that circulation going,” Hallyburton said. Kempf is also anxious to get a program like this started to reverse course on the negative reputation that has dogged IDOC for years. “We actively want to change the image of corrections and this a great way to do it,” he said. On the same token, Hallyburton is excited to help inmates move beyond their own pasts and onto a better life. “Think about how hard it is to get a job, even if you haven’t just gotten out of prison,” Hallyburton said. “Imagine getting the door slammed in your face everywhere you went. That can be a hard environment. As soon as you can make it a more welcoming environment, where you are trying to work with them and give them skills, you see people turn around really quickly—when all of the sudden a door opens for them.” For each kid’s bike an inmate repairs, Hallyburton said the inmate will receive a credit toward an adult bike at Boise Bicycle Project. When the inmate is released, he or she can come straight to BBP’s shop and cash in the
voucher for a reliable bike, helmet, lock and a set of bike lights. The details aren’t ironed out yet, but Hallyburton said a an adult bike would be worth around 15 fixed kids’ bikes. Half the fixed bikes will be donated to families in need and the other half would be for sale at a discounted price—around $20 or $40. “The sales for those pay for the adult bikes for the folks released from prison,” he said. “Then you’re looking at a program that’s selffunding.” To help get the program up and running, Hallyburton put out a call on Facebook to create a task force that could bring the idea to fruition. Within hours of the post going live on Nov. 11, it reached more than 15,000 people and had more than 150 shares. He has a dozen people on board with a diverse set of backgrounds, including some who were formerly incarcerated. He suspects the program will be operational by spring 2016. With Kempf onboard, the program might move faster than Hallyburton thought. “The good news for us is we can move pretty fast once we have willing participants on both ends,” Kempf said. “This is an exciting project, so it won’t take us very long to get up and running. I would say a matter of weeks, not months.”

A GOOD CYCLE
UNDA’ THE ROTUNDA
CITIZEN in tandem with the states. That said, there’s a paradigm I want to change. I want people to understand that the arts are not just for some and not others. I want to get to the point where more people say, “I don’t think I can live without the arts.”
Does the nation’s economy have to grow to ﬁnd adequate federal dollars to restore NEA funding? Chu: We need to show through hard evidence that the arts are important in our everyday lives.
Again, doesn’t the NEA need more federal funding? Chu: I’m not a fan of saying, “We can only do more if the economy grows.”
JANE CHU AND MICHAEL FAISON
The art of honoring America’s diversity
Conversely, don’t the arts continue to be a tangible economic engine for many American communities? Chu: Absolutely. The most recent Bureau of Economic Analysis report shows that the arts and culture sector provides 4.3 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product. That’s more than transportation, more than construction and many other sectors.
GEORGE PRENTICE The shorthand for Jane Chu’s personal story is “bok choy and corndogs.” The daughter of Chinese immigrants who fled their nation’s political unrest, Chu was born in Oklahoma and raised in Arkansas. “So I have navigated a bok choy/corndog set-up,” she likes to say. Chu went on to become a pianist, earn a Ph.D. from Indiana University and ultimately be named the 11th chairman of the National Endowment of the Arts in 2014. “And heeeeeere’s Michael,” said Chu, playing an introductory flourish on a nearby piano when Boise Weekly asked her to play a few bars on her favorite instrument. “Michael” is Michael Faison, executive director of the Idaho Commission on the Arts. Chu insisted Faison be at her side during her recent visit to Idaho, and Faison was quick to remind us the ICA and NEA are in perfect harmony. What might you tell a stranger what you do for a living? Chu: I run a federal agency that is all about sparking the vitality of the arts in the United States. We certainly know of the transformational power of the arts on individuals and communities. Faison: When the NEA was born 50 years ago, it was a spark for local arts across the country. It began leveraging enormous local support that breathed life into state and city agencies and particularly local arts council that hadn’t existed before. That all resulted because of that spark that Jane spoke of. Chu: The NEA gives 40 percent of its budgets to the states. I’m assuming Idaho’s arts commissions and state agencies across the country can’t exist without the NEA and vice versa. Chu: Other nations have cultural ministers. 8cNOVEMBER 25 – DECEMBER 1, 2015cBOISEweekly
We don’t. What I like about that is that together, we shape the arts in America. No one is telling the other what you can or can’t do when it comes to the arts. That’s one of the reasons I love to travel so much. How much time do you spend out of your D.C.oﬃce? Chu: Probably 80 to 90 percent. I’ve been at the job for a year and, so far, I’ve been to 60 communities. Faison: But in her first year, she chose to come to Idaho. That’s huge for us. In the half-century history of the NEA, many of us recall times when its very existence was threatened, particularly by budget cuts. In fact, the NEA still hasn’t seen it previous funding restored. Chu: But we’re moving in the right direction, especially when people understand that the arts are thriving because the NEA works
Michael, we should take note that Chairman Chu’s visit to Idaho included some time to visit Artisans for Hope here in Boise. Faison: They do extraordinary work, supporting our community’s newcomers to creatively express their stories and share their personal journeys to Idaho. Many of them have come from war-torn nations and have lost everything. But we greet them in Idaho with open arms and we’re so anxious for them to share their extraordinary stories. Artisans for Hope helps them share those moments through things like story quilts and the Idaho Commission on the Arts and the NEA proudly support that effort. And the Artisans for Hope particularly resonated with Chairman Chu because of her own personal story and how her parents immigrated to America to make a new life for her to thrive in such a glorious way. Chairman Chu, if you were queen for a day, what kind of sweeping change would you eﬀect? Chu: The Brookings Institution tells us that by 2020, the population of Americans 18 and younger will be a minority-majority [minorities will be the majority of that demographic]; by 2040, the population of 30 and under will be a minority-majority. That in itself reveals the multiple perspectives of our nation, and the arts spark us to honor all of those perspectives. If I were royalty, I would say let’s honor that even more right now.

It’s one thing to visit Santa at a mall; it’s another to tell him what you want against a backdrop of enough lights to make Emmett look like Las Vegas—-which you can do at the Idaho Botanical Garden’s 19th annual Winter Garden aGlow. Parents can have their children professionally photographed with Santa and do some shopping at the Holiday Garden Gift Store. The main attraction, though, is the garden itself, which has been decorated with more than 300,000 holiday lights hanging from every possible surface, transforming the garden into a brightly lit wonderland sure to bring a smile to the faces of parents and children alike. 6-9 p.m., $4-$10.

Nothing goes better with turkey leftovers (or is a delicious alternative to Thanksgiving ) than a yummy bowl of soup crafted from some of the Treasure Valley’s best chefs. That’s only one of the reasons why we adore The Idaho Foodbank’s annual day-after-Thanksgiving Empty Bowls celebration where gallons of hot soup generously ﬁll some beautifully handcrafted bowls, designed by professional and amateur artists and students. This is the 18th year the Foodbank (and several dozen of its loyal friends) will turn the Grove Plaza into Boise’s biggest kitchen, featuring more than 30 varieties of soup. Most of the bowls go for about $10—soup is free—though some extraordinary bowls go for a few dollars more. 11 a.m.-2 p.m., $10 and up.

DCI will showcase the most fun and exciting educational toys out there, such as the Wonder Workshop’s Dash and Dot Pack—a robot companion that helps kids learn how to code. Kids can program Dash to move, light up, make sound and respond to their voices. There’s the 3Doodler Pen 2.0, which is basically a tiny 3-D printer. The Rolling Spider is basically a drone for kids. Seriously, these toys sound fun no matter how old you are. No admission is needed to check out the toys, and every purchase is an entry into eight big giveaways from STEMﬁnity. 9:30-5 p.m., FREE.

ALL THAT REMAINS, NOV. 28, KNITTING FACTORY Sometimes a band makes music that is fully entrenched in the band’s chosen genre but is also, in some ways, boundary bending. Springﬁeld, Mass.-born All That Remains is metal. Although in its last few albums the band has integrated a poppier sound, ATR is still metal… musically. Lyrically, however, ATR songs would be right at home on the shelf next to Swift’s or those of any other current country musician, because inside all the screaming and pounding guitar chords, there’s a story. For example, check out the opening lyrics to “This Probably Won’t End Well” off ATR’s recently released The Order of Things (Razor and Tie, 2015): “Packing your things and you storm through the house/ Said, no, I can’t take it, I just wanna end it/ And all I can think, you look good when you’re angry/ So, let’s take a step back and get us back on track.” Even if you can’t understand ATR frontman Philip Labonte, you can be sure he has something to say. —Amy Atkins With Devour the Day, Audiotopsy, Sons of Texas. 7:30 p.m., $20$40.

Bryan Cranston is breaking good in Trumbo.
TRUMBO: THE REBEL WITH A CAUSE Bryan Cranston is stirring (never shaken) GEORGE PRENTICE Trumbo—yet another stellar film in a bountiful November at the cinema—goes down like a near-perfect martini. With Bryan Cranston in the lead role, Trumbo is smooth but peppered with powerful bitters, reminding us it wasn’t so long ago our nation put people behind bars for what they thought as much as for what they did. The question still haunts our history: “Are you now, or have you ever been, a member of the Communist Party?” In 1947, when that question was put to Dalton Trumbo, Hollywood’s most provocative playwright, he responded, “Many questions can be answered ‘yes’ or ‘no’ only by a moron or a slave.” His response got a good laugh during a meeting of the U.S. House UnAmerican Activities Committee. What many people have forgotten over time, however, is it also earned Trumbo a Contempt of Congress conviction and a prison sentence. In one particularly pungent sequence of Trumbo, we see the Oscar-winning playwright strip-searched before surrendering his identity, henceforth to be known as Prisoner No. 7551. Trumbo was once Hollywood’s highest-paid screenwriter, responsible for films like Roman Holiday and Kitty Foyle. Like many other Americans, he was also a communist sympathizer. For the record, so were Helen Keller, 18cNOVEMBER 25 – DECEMBER 1, 2015cBOISEweekly

WINESIPPER TIME FOR TEMPRANILLO Tempranillo’s best known incarnation is as the base for the wines of Rioja and the Ribera del Duero. Its popularity is deﬁnitely on the rise, having found a home in vineyards across the globe. Tempranillo seems particularly well suited to the Northwest, and the results of this tasting appear to bear that out. Here are the panel’s top three: 2013 HOLLORAN TEMPRANILLO, $19 When it comes to red wine, Oregon’s Willamette Valley is synonymous with pinot noir, so this Tempranillo from the Eola-Amity Hills district is a surprise. Bright cherry aromas are colored by nuanced leather, black pepper and sage. The chocolate-covered cherry and raspberry ﬂavors are supple, with a nice tannic grip on the ﬁnish. Touches of tobacco and leather add interest. 2011 POMUM TEMPRANILLO, $24 Co-owner and winemaker Javier Alfonso hails from Spain’s Ribera del Duero and brings an Old World sensibility to this Washington blend of 90 percent Tempranillo, 10 percent garnacha. Dark cherry dominates the nose with kisses of oak, licorice, cedar and cigar. On the palate, it’s creamy red fruit and plum, backed by silky tannins, smoky oak and leather. A touch of olive comes through on the ﬁnish. 2012 VOLVER SINGLE VINEYARD TEMPRANILLO, $27 One hundred percent Tempranillo, the grapes come from 50-plus-yearold vines situated in Spain’s south-central wine region of La Mancha. The sumptuous aromas include candied cherry, mocha, vanilla and graham cracker. It’s ripe and round in the mouth offering cherry, blueberry and plum ﬂavors. The ﬁnish is soft, lingering nicely with subtle oak and coffee. —David Kirkpatrick BOISE WEEKLY.COM

ARTS/NEWS THE MUSEUM OF BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS NEEDS LOCAL SOUVENIRS OF SADNESS It was in a moment of bittersweet serendipity that local screenwriter and author Samantha Silva saw Broken Relationships, an exhibition from The Museum of Broken Relationships exhibit in London in 2011. She was “in the throes” of ending a 23-year relationship. “It was difﬁcult and painful and lots of people got hurt,” Silva said. “But it’s a universal experience, and that’s what [Broken Relationships] is all about. We’re all constructing narratives ... about our relationships but when relationships end, we construct a different narrative ... we can look back on it and see seeds of how it grew and its demise.” The “seeds,” though metaphorical, are often manifested in souvenirs of lost love, like those that ﬁll The Museum of Broken Relationships, based in Zagreb, Croatia. Silva was so moved by the Broken Relationships exhibition, she helped organize its February 2016 visit to Boise, including securing a $5,000 grant from the Boise City Department of Arts and History. After their own relationship failed, founders Olinka Vistica and Drazen Grubisic created the museum, hoping to “offer a chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creation by contributing” a memento. Like the people who contribute them, each piece in the museum has a story: One item is an 20cNOVEMBER 25 – DECEMBER 1, 2015cBOISEweekly
old Nokia. “He gave me his cellphone so I couldn’t call him any more,” reads the description. When Broken Relationships opens at Ming Studios on First Thursday, Feb. 4, 2016, it will include selections from the permanent collection—but those will make up only half of the display. The other 50 percent of the exhibition will be comprised of mementos donated locally, and those will become part of the museum’s permanent collection. Contributing to the Boise exhibit and collection is easy and anonymous: Fill out the submission form at brokenships.com, including the story of the item you want to donate. If your story is chosen, you’ll receive an email with instructions on when and where to take your memento. Submissions open Tuesday, Dec. 1 and will be open for about a month. Silva said it’s important to have submissions from a wide range of people, so is working to get the word out to refugee, senior, veteran, LGBT populations and more. From brokenships.com: “Although often colored by personal experience, local culture and history, the exhibits presented here form universal patterns offering us to discover them and feel the comfort they can bring.” —Amy Atkins BOISE WEEKLY.COM

CV OC 1422341, IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE FOURTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT OF THE STATE OF IDAHO IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF ADA,
FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): “We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange,” wrote novelist Carson McCullers. “As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.” I’m guessing these days you’re feeling that kind of homesickness, Aries. The people and places that usually comfort you don’t have their customary power. The experiences you typically seek out to strengthen your stability just aren’t having that effect. The proper response, in my opinion, is to go in quest of exotic and experimental stimuli. In ways you may not yet be able to imagine, they can provide the grounding you need. They will steady your nerves and bolster your courage. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): The Pekingese is a breed of dog that has been around for more than 2,000 years. In ancient China, it was beloved by Buddhist monks and the families of emperors. Here’s the legend of its origin: A tiny marmoset and huge lion fell in love with each other, but the contrast in their sizes made union impossible. Then the gods intervened, using magic to make them the same size. Out of the creatures’ consummated passion, the first Pekingese was born. I think this myth can serve as inspiration for you, Taurus. Amazingly, you may soon find a way to blend and even synergize two elements that
are ostensibly quite different. Who knows? You may even get some divine help.
wonder if you should free yourself from a pretty or sentimental constriction that you have outgrown? If so, get help.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Author Virginia Woolf wrote this message to a dear ally: “I sincerely hope I’ll never fathom you. You’re mystical, serene, intriguing; you enclose such charm within you. The luster of your presence bewitches me ... the whole thing is splendid and voluptuous and absurd.” I hope you will have good reason to whisper sweet things like that in the coming weeks, Gemini. You’re in the Season of Togetherness, which is a favorable time to seek and cultivate interesting kinds of intimacy. If there is no one to whom you can sincerely deliver a memo like Woolf’s, search for such a person.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): “Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity for taking things for granted,” wrote Leo author Aldous Huxley. That’s the bad news. The good news is in the coming weeks you are less likely to take things for granted than you have been in a long time. Happily, it’s not because your familiar pleasures and sources of stability are in jeopardy. Rather, it’s because you have become more deeply connected to the core of your life energy. You have a vivid appreciation for what sustains you. Your assignment: Be alert for the eternal as it wells up out of the mundane.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Some people are so attached to wearing a favorite ring on one of their fingers that they never take it off. They love the beauty and endearment it evokes. In rare cases, years go by and their ring finger grows thicker. Blood flow is constricted. Discomfort sets in and they can’t remove their precious jewelry with the lubrication provided by a little olive oil or soap and water. They need the assistance of a jeweler who uses a small saw and a protective sheath to cut away the ring. I suspect this may be an apt metaphor for a certain situation in your life, Cancerian. Is it? Do you
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In their quest to collect nectar, honeybees are attuned to the importance of proper timing. Even if flowering plants are abundant, the quality and quantity of the nectar that’s available vary with the weather, season and hour of the day. For example, dandelions may offer their peak blessings at 9 a.m., cornflowers in late morning and clover in mid-afternoon. I urge you to be equally sensitive to the sources where you can obtain nourishment, Virgo. Arrange your schedule so you consistently seek to gather what you need at the right time and place.
24cNOVEMBER 25 – DECEMBER 1, 2015 cBOISEweekly
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Are you willing to dedicate yourself fully to a game whose rules are constantly mutating? Are you resourceful enough to keep playing at a high level even if some of the other players don’t have as much integrity and commitment as you? Do you have confidence in your ability to detect and adjust to ever-shifting alliances? Will the game still engage your interest if you discover that the rewards are different from what you thought they were? If you can answer yes to these questions, by all means jump all the way into the complicated fun! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): I suspect your body has been unusually healthy and vigorous lately. Is that true? If so, figure out why. Have you been taking better care of yourself? Have there been lucky accidents or serendipitous innovations on which you’ve been capitalizing? Make these new trends a permanent part of your routine. Now I’ll make a similar observation about your psychological well-being. It also seems to have been extra strong recently. Why? Has your attitude improved in such a way as to generate more positive emotions? Have there been fluky breakthroughs that unleashed unexpected surges of hope and good cheer? Make these new trends a permanent part of your routine.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): From the dawn of civilization until 1995, humans cataloged about 900 comets in our solar system. Since then, we have expanded that tally by more than 3,000. Most of the recent discoveries have been made not by professional astronomers, but by laypersons, including two 13-year-olds. They have used the Internet to access images from the SOHO satellite placed in orbit by NASA and the European Space Agency. After analyzing the astrological omens, I expect you Sagittarians to enjoy a similar run of amateur success. So trust your rookie instincts. Feed your innocent curiosity. Ride your raw enthusiasm. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Whether or not you are literally a student enrolled in school, I suspect you will soon be given a final exam. It may not happen in a classroom or require you to write responses to questions. The exam will more likely be administered by life in the course of your daily challenges. The material you’ll be tested on will mostly include the lessons you have been studying since your last birthday. There will also be at least one section that deals with a subject you’ve been wrestling with since early in your life—maybe even a riddle from before you were born. Since you have free will, Capricorn, you can refuse to take the exam. I hope you won’t. The more enthusiastic
you are about accepting its challenge, the more likely it is that you’ll do well. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): For $70,000 per night, you can rent the entire country of Liechtenstein for your big party. The price includes the right to rename the streets while you’re there. You can also create a temporary currency with a likeness of you on the bills, have a giant rendition of your favorite image carved into the snow on a mountainside, and preside over a festive medieval-style parade. Given your current astrological omens, I suggest you consider the possibility. If that’s too extravagant, I hope you will at least gather your legion of best friends for the Blowout Bash of the Decade. It’s time, in my opinion, to explore the mysteries of vivid and vigorous conviviality. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Are you available to benefit from a thunderbolt healing? Would you consider wading into a maelstrom if you knew it was a breakthrough in disguise? Do you have enough faith to harvest an epiphany that begins as an uproar? Weirdly lucky phenomena like these are on tap if you have the courage to ask for overdue transformations. Your blind spots and sore places are being targeted by life’s fierce tenderness. All you have to do is say, “Yes, I’m ready.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM

FIND NYT VR
DEAR MINERVA, I have a problem. I’ve been dating this guy who treats me like gold. He has a great job, a great personality and he is so attentive to me. I love being around him. We recently started having sex and while I enjoy being with him, he doesn’t measure up. His penis is small, and I need something more. I can’t seem to get over his manhood. Am I bad person? —Size Queen
DEAR SIZE QUEEN, This question does pop up, so to speak, from time to time. Are you a bad person for desiring more from him than he can provide physically? Not necessarily. Does it smell of shallowness? Yes. He obviously cannot control the size of his penis. What can he control? His personality, his ability to provide and the way he treats you. From what you’ve said about him, he sounds like a solid guy. Trust me, he is aware and probably worried every moment that he doesn’t satisfy you. The heart—and whatever other organs—want what they want. That alone does not make you a bad person. However, we live in a world where sexual satisfaction is only a trip to the sex shop away. Get creative. If you still can’t deal with the reality of his endowment, then put him back on the market. He deserves someone who sees his manhood is not based on his penis but on the other qualities he has nurtured.
Approximately 1.2 million Americans woke up Nov. 7 to discover a small cardboard box had been delivered atop their Sunday New York Times. It was the size and shape of a promotional box of breakfast cereal or laundry detergent. It was, however, a revelation of how Americans will probably be accessing journalism in the near future. The box, designed with the help of Google and General Electric, is The Times’ new virtual reality nytimes.com/newsgraphviewer that immerses the newsics/2015/nytvr papers’ readers into 21st century storytelling. The Times VR viewer requires the NYT VR app, available for iPhones and Android devices. To date, The Times has included stories about children driven from their homes by war and persecution, and a short ﬁlm about the paper’s “Walking New York” magazine cover story. Virtual reality is not new, but The Times’ cheap, mass produced and distributed version is a game-changer for discerning consumers of news and superb storytelling. —George Prentice
