EDITOR’S NOTE BOISE WEEKLY COVER ART AUCTION 2015 GRANT RECIPIENTS Though we’ve talked about this many times before, it bears repeating… Each week, the cover of Boise Weekly is an original work by a local artist and once each year, the public has the opportunity to bid on those works at our our annual Boise Weekly Cover Art Auction. Artists receive 30 percent of the price their work garners and the remainder of the proceeds go into our Cover Auction Grant program and to support our investigative journalism mission. We’d like to thank everyone who applied for a grant and while we wish we could support them all, following are the recipients of our 2015 Cover Art Auction Grant: Organizations: Bob’s Art Farm, BOSCO, Hermit Music Festival, LED, Serenata Orchestra and World Village Festival. Individuals: Dave Eggar, Kirsten Furlong and Veiko Valencia. If you have questions or want more information on how to apply for our grant program, email Amy or Sally at boiseweekly. com. Winners, your checks are in the mail (seriously). In other news, this week’s edition of BW takes a few interesting angles of the issue of homelessness in Boise. On Page 6, staff writer Jessica Murri profiles the important—though underfunded—work done at the Allumbaugh House, which helps those struggling with mental health crises and drug and alcohol abuse get back on their feet. Getting sober, however, is only a piece of the puzzle. Staying that way and getting into a stable environment is every bit as important, which is the thrust behind the city of Boise’s new “housing first” strategy for dealing with homelessness. On Page 8, Murri takes another look at homelessness, but through the eyes of those affected by it. As part of her senior project, 17-year-old Sarah Ridgway gave cameras to seven people staying at Interfaith Sanctuary and asked them to document their lives. The results were as beautiful as they were impacting. —Amy Atkins and Zach Hagadone

FINICUM RALLY A demonstration was hosted March 5 at the Capitol, rallying against the death of Robert Finicum, shot by police Jan. 26 amid a militia takeover in Oregon. More on News/Unda’ the Rotunda.
SIEGE THE DAY
Time to breach these radicals’ barricades BILL COPE Here’s what should happen at the Capitol building. The one that belongs to every man, woman and child in America. The federal Capitol, which until relatively recently served as the national epicenter of citizen involvement in their own governance and that since 2010 has been commandeered by a lawless cabal determined to cut citizens out of the process of governance. Here’s what should happen if these renegades do what they are threatening to do if President Barack Obama nominates anyone to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court left by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia: 1) Gather enough FBI agents, DEA agents, ATF agents, SWAT teams, local law enforcement officers, military police and any other available crime-fighting units to surround the Capitol entirely and make sure the outlaws know they are ready to move in at a moment’s notice. In the first stages, the lawmen should maintain a low profile while the turncoats are allowed to conduct their press conferences and photo-ops, strutting out their anti-democratic, anti-government insurgency, and struggling to explain why they are justified in refusing to allow our duly-elected, twice-elected president to execute his constitutional mandate to keep the Supreme Court stocked with a full count of nine. At the same time, the honorable individuals within Congress, within the news media and the general public should continue to point out that there is no justification whatsoever—legal, historical or moral—to the criminals’ refusal to act. 2) At the first actual, concrete act of defiance, most likely to be a decision by the rebel leader Sen. Mitch McConnell to deny any hearings on a nominee, all access to and egress from the building should come to an end, except for Congress members willing to perform their constitutional obligation to give the president’s nomination a fair hearing. If the mutineer riffraff persist in their efforts to subvert this 228-year-old process, the decent and law-abiding senators should be evacuated from the building and installed into another venue where they might perform their jobs unimpeded by sabotage and obstructionism. To the unthinking, this will appear to be a partisan suppression of disloyal Republicans by Constitution-abiding Democrats. But Harry Reid, as leader of the responsible faction of the Senate, can assure any wavering insurrectionists, as well as the public, that every senator willing to do the job he is being paid to do, and who has the guts to reject the dictates of his party bosses, is welcome to join them. 3) Those treasonous vermin who prove themselves incapable of living by the laws of the land
should have their bank accounts and staff budgets frozen, and any further compensation—be it in the form of salary, health coverage or expense allowance—should come to an immediate halt. The Senate cafeteria should be closed and locked, and all utilities should be cut off. Undoubtedly, the seditious scofflaws will appeal for help from like-minded morons in terms of food, toiletries and sympathy. At this stage, the authorities should allow only packets of stale turkey jerky and six packs of Diet Mountain Dew to be delivered to the perfidious misfits holed up in our once-honored institution. No doubt, some of the traitors will encourage feeble-minded fringies to join some sort of revolution of the chronically disgruntled. One can almost picture Sen. Ted Cruz shrieking like the Wicked Witch of the West as he calls for an uprising against the tyranny of people who simply expect the United States government to function as though it was comprised of adults rather than drama queen idiots. A few ne’er-do-wells and borderline mental cases—i.e., the typical “patriot” bums who show up at any opportunity to show off their guns and deranged ranting—will actually make their way to Washington, thinking, “Hot damn! This is why I traded the RV for an AR!” But as this is not some phony confrontation staged by cretinous inbreds on an isolated Nevada ranch or Oregon nature reserve, we might expect those would-be Bundys will be surprised to find that they are no match for either the assemblage of law enforcement personnel or the crowds of protesters gathered on the Capitol Mall demanding the occupiers be taken into custody for neglect of duty, desecration of government property with their noxious presence, corruption of American values, heritage and jurisprudence, as well as any other appropriate charges. 4) We can anticipate the end of this siege will come quickly. Undoubtedly, many of the malcontents will find they weren’t as prepared as they thought they were to go more than a few days without cocktail hours, lobbyists to comp their dinners at expensive restaurants and regular interviews with Fox News quislings. However, there should be no negotiations with the turncoat scum that does not end in a televised hearing on whomever President Obama nominates for the Supreme Court. It’s unlikely the scheming snakes would approve any such nominee, and there is no legal way they can be forced to do so. But it will give the nation a valuable opportunity to understand—just in time for the general election—what puny, disgusting rats they are who would commandeer the entire nation if we let them.

NEWS FROM THE STREETS TO SOBRIETY AND BACK AGAIN
After detoxing in the Allumbaugh House, many people without a home have no choice but to go back to the same bad situation as before JESSICA MURRI
In the summer of 2015, volunteers built a new trail in Harrison Hollow.
When David Gordon took over as Ridge to Rivers program manager 12 years ago, the city of Boise had 95 miles of trails to manage. Now, those miles have doubled, with around 400,000 visitors per year. “We have four full-time positions and we pick up four more seasonal positions for trail crew,” Gordon said. “Since I’ve got here—up until this year—we’ve had the same size crew. We added one permanent position and two seasonal positions this year. The eight of us focus on the dirt.” The city has focused largely on acquiring foothills land through the 2001 foothills levy and now the new Clean Water and Open Space levy—both for $10 million. What that means for Gordon and his crew is 200 miles of trail that need inﬁll, tread, established slopes, drain dip and erosion repairs, invasive weed mitigation and a “laundry list” of other trail maintenance. That’s just putting a Band-Aid on the problems,” Gordon said. “If we had additional funds, we could build cooler trails. We could turn old two-tracks into single track trail that would be much more fun. But that’s not a real high priority because we have all these other things to work on.” A handful of years ago, a solution to this funding problem was in the works when a small group of citizens came together and started talking about the creation of a friends group for the foothills. Friends groups are 501(c)3 nonproﬁts that become helpful tools to raise money for large projects, as well as broaden awareness and strengthen community assets. For example, the Friends of the Park helps raise millions of dollars for the Boise River Park, allowing the ﬁrst phase to be constructed in 2012, as well as the next phases, which are slated for construction in 2017. While the city can’t ask for donations to fund such projects, a friends group can. Zoo Boise has its own Friends group, as well as the Boise Public Library. Gordon and other city employees longed to see a friends group of their own. However, the creation of a friends 7 group for the foothills quickly turned rocky. “It was so challenging even just to get 6 | MARCH 9–15, 2016 | BOISEweekly
Brian Finbraaten’s rock bottom happened under a carport off of Fairview Avenue and Milwaukee Street. His brother had just died in Rapid City, S.D.,and Finbraaten never got to say goodbye. His marriage fell apart after his wife was charged with domestic battery. He left his home in Coeur d’Alene in search of employment and another shot at staying sober. Instead, he ended up under the carport. In 2010, a few years before that night, Finbraaten took a bus to Boise with only a few bags in hand. He found his way to the Boise Rescue Mission, then bounced from shelter to shelter, from campsite to campsite. Nothing in his life stayed stable for more than a month or two. He struggled to find his way out of the bottle. He admitted to using his food stamp card to buy cooking sherry and V8 to get himself drunk. He failed again and again to maintain sobriety. That night under the carport, he’d had enough. “I just said, ‘That’s it. I’m done.’ I started walking out to the street. I was going to walk right in front of a car,” Finbraaten said. “That’s when some of my buddies tackled me to the ground and called 911. The hospital said my suicidal thoughts were alcohol-related. They said, ‘You’ve really got an alcohol problem, Brian.’” That wasn’t the first—nor the last—time Finbraaten checked himself into the Allumbaugh House, which is a facility that offers medically-managed detoxification and mental health crisis services to the Treasure Valley. It’s operated by Terry Reilly Health Services and receives funding from the cities of Boise and Meridian as well as Ada County, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, St. Luke’s Health Systems and the United Way of Treasure Valley. Over the six years since Finbraaten moved to Boise, he admitted himself into the Allumbaugh House 18 times. “I was absolutely embarrassed to walk in again and again,” Finbraaten said. “But the people at Allumbaugh house are selfless and nonjudgmental. They even found me a few times on the street and they were like,

It took Brian Finbraaten 18 trips to the Allumbaugh House and about six years before he was able to maintain his sobriety. It’s been more than a year now, and he has his own apartment and hope for the future.
‘Brian, man, you know you can come back.’ I wouldn’t be here right now if it wasn’t for Allumbaugh. I would be on the street, or I would be dead.” When Finbraaten says “here,” he’s referring to a nice, new apartment building where he qualifies for Section 8 housing. Despite the warm spring air, the 53-year-old still wears several layers of clothing, including a blue hoodie that brings out the blue in his eyes. His thumb and index finger are stained with nicotine from years smoking cigarettes. He talks openly about his struggles with alcohol and proudly shows his one-year coin from Alcoholics Anonymous. He said he owes much of it to the Allumbaugh House. Finbraaten’s tenderness toward the Allumbaugh House is mirrored in Cindy Miller, when she speaks of the patients that have
come through the door. The Allumbaugh House was built in 2010 and Miller has managed it since then. “More than half of the employees that began with us are still here, which is rare in this kind of health care. It speaks to how important this is for all of us,” Miller said. “It’s because of the patients—their gratitude, their generosity, their kindness and appreciation— that makes this so meaningful.” Her demeanor is warm as she gives a tour of the facility. The common area has several couches and a flat screen TV, high ceilings and large windows, as well as vibrant paintings on the walls. Through the hall is the nurse’s station—manned 24/7—and the dormitories: eight beds for women and eight beds for men. There’s the “zen” patio, complete with a large, BOISE WEEKLY.COM

shady tree and a fountain. A pot of coffee brews in the kitchen and Life’s Kitchen delivers lunch and dinner daily. Despite a total of 24 beds, the Allumbaugh House can only take on 16 patients at a time with the funding it currently receives. It often has a sizable waitlist. “We do not bill for any services,” Miller said. “Our priority population is for the underserved.” More than half of Allumbaugh’s patients are without a home. Each patient voluntarily enters the program and is usually discharged within five to seven days, but they often don’t have anywhere to go except back to the street. That’s something Miller would like to see change. She said she reaches out to family members of the patients, as well as sober living homes and transitional housing, but there is a lack of bed capacity across the area. “Our highest concern is in the people who are returning to the streets,” she said. “Their risks of relapse are extremely high.” Finbraaten can attest to that. Many of his relapses happened because he had nowhere else to go after he sobered up at the Allumbaugh House. “[The homeless community] is really tight-knit if you’re in with them,” Finbraaten said. “You share everything—your beer, your smokes. You need a piece of clothing, you get it. But you have to break free from them to stay sober.” Even once Finbraaten moved into a sober living house, his old friends were in the park right across the street. “They were continuously saying, ‘Just come on and have a beer with us,’” he said. “I tried to isolate myself from the homeless community, but you know, people get lonely.” The city of Boise’s newly announced ‘Housing First’ plan won’t address the problem of having nowhere to go for at least a year, if not two. The plan calls for community developers to submit proposals for a 25-unit complex that would house chronically homeless. The city promises to contribute $1 million toward construction of such a project, and proposals are due in September. The city is also working with the Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority, CATCH, Inc. and Terry Reilly to identify 15 units scattered around the valley to provide permanent housing. “Our ‘Housing First’ cake is not fully baked,” said Mike Journee, spokesman for the city of Boise. “The goal is to get someone into a stable housing situation, then provide wraparound services.” Such services include mental health and substance abuse treatment as well as financial counseling. Journee said Point-in-Time counts in years

an agreement hammered out,” Gordon said. “It bafﬂes me why that was so challenging. You think it would be fairly easy, but it led to [the citizens involved] throwing their hands up and stepping away.” Three years ago, a friends group was created and called Boise Trail Works. “Which is kind of an odd name,” Gordon said. “Honestly, nothing has been done. So we’re still at ground zero on how to succeed. And it took two years just to get to that point.” That is, until Saturday, March 5. The Egyptian Theatre nearly sold out for the Land Trust of the Treasure Valley’s inaugural Les Bois Film Festival, which showcased 15 short nature ﬁlms from all over the world and a few local gems. It was after one such ﬁlm that Brooke Green, a board member of LTTV, took to the stage and made an important announcement. “We are launching an effort to continue trail maintenance projects starting tonight, called the Boise Foothills Friends,” she said. “Or, BFF. It’s a chance to donate time and money, and get your hands dirty. Become a BFF, and participate in the Boise Foothills Friends.” More information on the new foothills friends group is at lttv.org/friends-of-thefoothills. Tim Breuer, the executive director of LTTV, has had this in mind for a long time. He was the original Ridge to Rivers program manager, so he understands ﬁrsthand the challenges Gordon and his crew are facing. “Working with the Land Trust puts this idea 10 years ahead of the game, as opposed to creating a new nonproﬁt,” Breuer said. “It’s hard to start something new and sustain it.” He said the new sub-group of the Land Trust will work closely with the city’s Foothills and Open Space senior manager, Sara Arkle, as well as Gordon, and help Ridge to Rivers grow a support staff. “This is a model where you’re not just relying on tax dollars and the government to get stuff done, but instead incorporating a non-political. non-governmental organization,” Breuer said. “You can’t just keep buying trails. You have to take care of what you already have.” 6

past have revealed there are about 100 people without a home living in Boise. He said those 100 people cost the community up to $6 million per year between medical care, incarceration and service at the shelters. “If we could get all those 100 folks into housing, it would cost the community $1.6 million annually,” he said. But for now, it’s up to the community to come forward with proposals for the plan. Journee said he has no idea how many proposals will actually come in this September. “We’ll contribute money to the construction, but we expect the community to put together the programming and the ongoing funding for this so it’s a long-term, permanent resource,” Journee said. Until then, it’s a difficult cycle of addiction to break, according to Miller. “It’s been very hard for us to do real outcome measurement because this is a very transient population,” she said. “We take people back as many times as we need to and view it as another opportunity to help them. I don’t know if it’s going to be the fourth time here or the 10th time here that everything will come together.” Finbraaten said he doesn’t know what changed on his 18th and final visit to the facility. “They’ve given me their share of tough love,” he said. “They said, ‘OK Brian, what’s really going to be different this time?’ It was
after the 18th time that I came up with the answer. You know, I don’t honestly know. I just want to try to live. I just want to live.” Finbraaten left that facility for the last time on Feb. 18, 2015 and hopped from his counselor’s home to sober living to camping in isolated areas to staying in motels. He said things started turning around the longer he was sober. “The things that have happened—the only way to explain it would be divine,” he said. “As I stayed sober, doors opened. I was chosen on the lottery—one of the 1,200 chosen out of 12,000 people in the state of Idaho—for Section 8 housing. “There’s no way, if I had been drinking, that I would have gotten into this place,” Finbraaten added. “The legwork that had to be done, the doors that are slammed—you just have to persevere and continue on.” The first time Finbraaten stepped into his new apartment, he was overcome with emotion. “I was in shock,” he said. “I went in there and I just started screaming and dancing the jig.” Finbraaten said he’s starting to deal with some of the long-term effects of living in survival mode for so many years, but he’s looking for jobs in construction and plans to quit smoking on his 54th birthday, later this month. He even wants to start working out. “I made it,” he said. “It’s amazing that I got here.”

DISPOSABLE CAMERAS; INDISPENSABLE PERSPECTIVE Seven occupants of the Interfaith Sanctuary capture their lives through photos JESSICA MURRI
arah Ridgway had no idea what she would find when she developed the film contained in seven disposable cameras she picked up at Interfaith Sanctuary. When the pictures were processed, she saw deep purple sunsets and geese flying overhead. There was a photo of the Boise Train Depot and another of the Boise River, taken from the middle of Friendship Bridge near Boise State University. At a glance, there was no way to tell who snapped the pictures—they could have been shot by a college student, a commuter, a person walking his or her dog. Or, a person without a home. The photo of the Boise River was taken by Troy. Troy has a weathered face and thick beard that has grown to reach his chest. He struggles to find work because of his posttraumatic stress disorder diagnosis. He has a young boy living in Seattle. “I asked him during our interview, if he could be anywhere, where would he be, and he said wherever his son is,” Ridgway said. “He said [visiting his son] is ‘more important than going to Paris or London or Amsterdam or New York. That’s my goal in life. That’s my little boy.’” Ridgway, 17, met Troy in late 2015, when she began putting together her Idaho Virtual Academy senior project—“Through Our Eyes”—which included giving cameras to seven people staying at Interfaith and asking them to document their lives. The participants had a week with the cameras and, at the end, Ridgway interviewed each of them. “I told them to photograph things that resonated with them or moved them in some way, or made them feel inspired,” Ridgway said. “I didn’t know what to expect.” She edited the photos in Adobe Lightroom and compiled them in a glossy, hardcover book. Alongside the photos Ridgway incorporated a high-quality portrait of each participant against a black backdrop and wrote long passages taken from their interviews. That was the most challenging part of the entire project, Ridgway said. “I’ve always struggled with speaking with others,” she said. “I struggle with anxiety and stuff, but this helped me a lot. It was therapeutic. I reflected back after and I was like, ‘Wow, I talked to seven complete strangers for 20 minutes each and I got through it and I’m still alive and breathing.’ I was surprised how easy it was to chat with them.” Ridgway picked Interfaith Sanctuary in an attempt to “humanize” the homeless community. Her project came together

during the turbulence surrounding Cooper Court—a tent city that had popped up in an alley near Americana Boulevard that was broken up by Boise police in December after months of rising tension. “A lot of people essentially view them as flaws in the system,” Ridgway said. “I’ve heard people describe them as trash and that’s something that really hurts my heart. They’re working really hard. They’re not lazy. They’re not drug addicts. Troy was telling me that he’s never tried drugs or drank, but he still has trouble finding work because of the stigma tied to the homeless community.” Some of the photos captured the dismantling of Cooper Court. One photo, taken by 25-year-old Briana, showed a group of protesters standing on the corner of Americana Boulevard and River Street, holding umbrellas and picket signs over their heads. “Homelessness is Not a Crime,” read one sign. The picture is black-and-white, dark and gritty, but the words stand out as a strong focal point in the middle of the image. “Briana is a big advocate for human rights and the homeless community,” Ridgway said. “She’s very passionate about standing up for what she believes in. She was telling me how she was really moved by the protesters there, and happy that people were standing up for [the residents of Cooper Court].” In her book, Ridgway explains Briana was kicked out of the house over a turbulent relationship with her stepfather and didn’t have enough money to find her own housing. Now, she’s staying at Interfaith and expecting a baby in May. Other photos depicted the daily lives of the photographers. Sherry snapped a photo of one of her friends talking to a Boise police officer on a bike. The interaction looks friendly; both the woman in the picture and the officer are smiling as they talk. “She was trying to show in this picture that there can be a positive connection [between law enforcement and the homeless community],” Ridgway said. “It’s not always a battle.” Another common theme throughout the photos is nature. That was especially important for a woman in her early 20s named Freya. She took pictures of trees and ducks, the river bank and the spindly branches of a willow tree. “When I’m upset or something, I go walking around or sitting around nature,” Freya is quoted in Ridgway’s book. “I spent three hours one day walking around [Kathryn] Albertson Park because it just calms me down so much. … I love the sight of the sunset hitting the river at the end of the day.” Freya moved to Boise from Dallas a few years ago and was shocked by the cold. She wound up homeless after losing her
job and started hanging around people who used drugs. She told Ridgway she also began using but kicked the habit and now stays at Interfaith Sanctuary. “She wants to study culinary arts,” Ridgway said. “She loves cooking and the way food can become an art. Her dream is to go to Italy to study, then open her own restaurant and call it Denise’s, after her grandmother. I’m really hoping she’s able to do that someday.” One of Ridgway’s favorite photos shows a large jigsaw puzzle of an ancient art gallery, put together save for one missing piece. The photo was taken by a former police officer named Samira. According to Ridgway’s book, Samira speaks 17 languages and has lived in India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Israel, the West Bank and all over the United States. She worked for the federal government, then became a corrections officer and a warden. She especially liked working with troubled youth. She was eventually attacked and beaten with a wooden board, which caused severe damage to her body and landed her in a wheelchair. “When they went for my legs, they went for my career,” Samira told Ridgway. She lost her job due to budget cuts and ended up without a home. She said other people living on the street have not been accepting of her because of her past in law enforcement. Regardless, she strives to continue learning. She checks the stock market almost daily and spends her time at the Education Center in the Corpus Christi House. That’s where she took the picture of the puzzle. “She told me they’ve been looking for this one piece for five years and they haven’t been able to finish the puzzle,” Ridgway said. Once she finished compiling her project, Ridgway didn’t feel quite ready to let it go. She said she wants to create a larger book in the next year or so, with as many as 30 participants and a wider demographic—including those living at City Light Home for Women and the Boise Rescue Mission. Ridgway also plans to start volunteering at Interfaith Sanctuary once she turns 18 in April. She’ll attend Boise State University in the fall to double major in fine arts and photography. Her “ultimate dream” is to study abroad. Overall, she said her passion will always remain in photography. “Photography is such a simple art. Anyone can pick up a camera and just press a button to take a picture,” Ridgway said. “Yet it’s such an expressive form of art. It’s personal. I love seeing other people’s perspectives and how they approach their subjects.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM

“I can say the Hail Mary in English, then run over to the Synagogue and read the Torah in Hebrew, then go to the Mosque and say the Koran in Arabic,” Samira said when talking about her diverse upbringing. She traveled the world, working for the U.S. government.

Confutatis maledictis, ﬂammis acribus addictis, voca me cum benedictus.
“They simply landed on the wire, and they watched him.”—Neil Gaiman
BOISE PHILHARMONIC: MOZART REQUIEM
Commissioned by a nobleman who intended to claim it as his own and ﬁnished by one of Mozart’s students after the master’s death, the Requiem in D Minor is simultaneously one of the greatest pieces of music and (in a sense) one of the most magniﬁcent pieces of plagiarism ever scored. Experience it with the Boise Phil and Master Chorale on Friday, March 11 at the Northwest Nazarene University Brandt Center. The Requiem will be reprised Saturday, March 12 at the Morrison Center, along with performances of the overture to Don Giovanni and Tchaikovsky’s homage to Amadeus, Suite No. 4, Mozartania. Friday, March 11, 8 p.m. $22-$43.50. Brandt Center at NNU, 707 Fern St., Nampa, 208-467-8790. Saturday, March 12, 8 p.m. $23.75-$71.50. Morrison Center; 2201 Cesar Chavez Lane; 208426-1110; boisephil.org.
Regardless of how important birds are to us, we humans have sadly been the cause of some birds’ demise (bye bye, dodo). In some cases, though, we have remembered our responsibility, like with the California condor when the population dropped to 22. The Gymnogyps californianus has since been reintroduced to a few Western states and Mexico, but conservation efforts are still an integral part of its survival. As part of that effort, local artist and Boise Weekly staffer Ellen DeAngelis and the Peregrine Fund World Center for Birds of Prey will unveil a massive installation: 22 life-size California condor silhouettes perched atop the Record Exchange. The 22, which runs through April, will help “bring awareness to Boise’s continued conservation efforts.” 1 p.m., FREE. The Record Exchange, 1105 W. Idaho St., 208344-8010, therecordexchange.com.
Lewis Black is famously angry. In the throes of his standup acts and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart monologues, his jowells shudder and his outstretched index ﬁnger wags in hypertensive aprobrium at the excesses of capitalism, attempts to curtail people’s voting rights—since 2013 he has been an “ambassador for voting rights” for the ACLU—and immigration. His rants are so impassioned words have trouble escaping his mouth; on stage his movements straddle the line between gesture and spasm with the elan of someone sticking a penny in a light socket. He is an uncorked bottle of apoplectic rage. Catch the man live Saturday, March 12, at the Egyptian Theatre as part of his The Emperor’s New Clothes: The Naked Truth Tour. Tickets are $43. 8 p.m. $43. The Egyptian Theatre, 700 W. Main St., Boise, egyptiantheatre.net.

With marijuana legal in some form or another in more than 20 states, one might think the stoner mystique would be lessened. Apparently not, according to Placentia, Calif.-based Kottonmouth Kings. Founded in 1994, the Kings are chronic chron rockers with a pedigree that goes back clear to Doggy Style, which was formed by frontman Brad “Daddy X” Xavier in 1983. For the record, that means some of the Kings have been ripped and rapping since Snoop Dogg was in middle school—and long before he laid claim to both canines and cheeba. Through all those years—and more than a dozen studio albums— the Kottonmouth Kings have stayed true to their genre, combining punk intensity with psychedelic hip hop and a sense of goofball humor (don’t believe me? Watch the video for “Kronitron”). As members of the pothead pantheon, the Kottonmouth Kings deserve their royal reputation. Now they’re bringing their “high standards” to Boise as part of an anniversary tour.

WINESIPPER SAUVINGON BLANC
2013 BENZIGER SAUVIGNON BLANC, $14 The aromas on this California North Coast entry can best be described as elegant, with soft lime, green apple and blood orange. The ﬂavors are round and ripe, marked by sweet lime playing against racy grapefruit. Beautifully balanced, the supple, almost creamy ﬁnish has hints of lime zest and mineral. 2014 MARISCO VINEYARD, THE NED SAUVIGNON BLANC, $13 It’s unmistakably New Zealand, but The Ned is more subtle than you might expect from that region. The nose offers ripe lime aromas, ﬂoral lilac and lavender, with a touch of lemongrass. The palate is loaded with ripe tropical fruit including key lime, pineapple, kiwi and grapefruit. The ﬁnish is crisp, clean and lingers nicely. 2014 MARKHAM SAUVIGNON BLANC, $14 Incredibly rich aromas race from the glass, ﬁlled with ﬂoral honeysuckle, ripe melon and citrus zest. There’s a core of sweet citrus on the palate, surrounded by pineapple, kiwi and grapefruit ﬂavors. A hint of ﬂint comes through on the ﬁnish, while the addition of 13 percent Semillon adds melon ﬂavors to this delicious Napa Valley blend. —David Kirkpatrick 20 | MARCH 9–15, 2015 | BOISEweekly

As spring approaches, I’m ready to take a break from winter reds. I like to do a complete 180 and embrace the oh-so-crisp and refreshing charms of Sauvignon Blanc. That it’s been unseasonably warm the past few weeks makes that transition even more desirable. The wine panel tried Sauvignon Blancs from around the world and, not surprisingly, New Zealand made the cut. What was a little surprising is that two from California beat out wines from Chile, France and Washington state. Here are the top Sauvignon Blanc picks:
FROM CANAPES TO COCKTAILS
New restaurants Oak Barrel of Eagle and Richard’s offer fresh cuisine, while Lost Grove Brewing opens near Boise State TARA MORGAN Catering company Boise Oak Barrel is transitioning from canapes to cocktails at its new restaurant and lounge, Oak Barrel of Eagle, located at 1065 E. Winding Creek Drive. Husband and wife team Mark and Kristina Anderson officially opened the restaurant March 4. “We believe that food in its most natural form is better for you and tastes better,” said Kristina. “So we’re bringing a very fresh cuisine concept to Eagle and the surrounding communities.” Though Kristina ran the kitchen at her catering company, she hired Executive Chef Mike Gradian to take the reins at Oak Barrel of Eagle. The menu includes American standards like salads, burgers and grilled salmon, along with more unusual offerings like Basque-marinated flat iron topped with chimichurri and the Plato de Tapas, a starter with manchego, roasted asparagus wrapped in serrano ham, tortilla de patata and dried chorizo. Oak Barrel of Eagle is currently serving lunch and dinner seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. The spot also boasts a cocktail lounge, open every day from 11 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., with live music on Friday and Saturday nights. “I’m really excited about some of my signature drinks that we’ve come up with,” said Kristina. “We’re calling it the New School of Classics.” Cocktails options include the Silver Fizz Disaronno Sour, the Coco-Chata Fire Martini and the Blood Orange Old Fashioned. In addition to the restaurant and lounge, Oak Barrel will also continue to offer catering. “We’ve been catering for about four years now, so we’re opening up our dream,” said Kristina. In brews news, a new 10-barrel, 5,000-squarefoot brewery is planning to open in the Lusk District at 1026 S. La Pointe St. Owned by Jake Black, who previously worked in sales and distribution for Payette Brewing, Lost Grove Brewing will focus on IPAs and kettle sours. Though Black isn’t ready to announce his head brewer, he confirmed that it’s someone who has been “brewing

in the industry for the last five years.” “It’s our goal to create well-crafted beers,” said Black. “I think the brewing community here in Boise has been growing like crazy and I think there’s a lot of really good breweries popping up and I think there’s some that could utilize a little bit of work on their beer. I think the one thing that we’re bringing that’s a little bit different … is that we’ve had brewing experience and have been in the industry.” Lost Grove will boast a 90-100 person tasting room, a dog-friendly front patio and “significant” bike parking. Black plans to self-distribute around Boise to start and will launch with three flagship brews. “We actually just want to make sure that once we start producing a certain product that any of the bars or restaurants that are carrying our products can maintain that beer, if they so choose to,” said Black. Black says the brewery will to give back to community nonprofits through a program called Powerful Pint, similar to Payette’s Kegs4Kause. Black plans to open Lost Grove by the fall of 2016. As for the name, he says it’s a nostalgic nod to childhood. “When I was a kid, one of my good friends and I would go to this field where we would always be running around and playing … It was a place where you could escape from reality and leave things behind,” said Black. “I guess that’s the meaning of Lost Grove, it’s just a space where you can go and relax and be with friends and enjoy yourself.” In other soon-to-open news, Chef Richard Langston, of North End staple Richard’s Café Vicino, is relocating his popular Italian restaurant to the Inn at 500 Capitol. The six-story, 112-room boutique hotel is currently under construction at Capitol Boulevard
and Myrtle Street, in the parking lot adjacent to The Flicks. Obie Development Partners LLC, which owns a similar hotel in Eugene, Ore., broke ground on the property last October. “They came to me several months ago and asked me if I’d be interested in doing it,” said Langston. “So we spent a lot of time and did a lot of research. It’s going to be a beautiful hotel.” Langston said the new space will boast a 70-seat dining room divided into three “vignettes of seating” to maintain the intimate atmosphere Richard’s Café Vicino is known for. There will also be a 28-seat, full-service bar and a 12-seat private dining room on the ground floor, along with a 100-seat banquet room on the second floor and a patio terrace that will seat around 20 people in the warmer months. “We’re going to open that seasonally, probably with a little more casual concept … have a drink, have some appetizers,” said Langston. Though the restaurant will keep the menus from its North End location, it’ll drop “Café Vicino” and go by Richard’s. It’ll also expand its hours to offer breakfast seven days a week and brunch on Sundays. “We are definitely keeping the style and the feel of Richard’s Café Vicino. … At lunch and dinner you probably will not recognize a difference in the menus, except they may get a little bigger because I’ll have a bigger facility to prep in and prepare in,” said Langston. Langston said all of his staff plan to make the transition to the new location, which should be open by Dec. 31. He confirmed there will be dedicated surface parking and said the “transition should be seamless” for his regular customers. “It’s still my food, this is what I’ve done for a long time and people seem to react to it well and appreciate it,” he said. “So that’ll be very much the same.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM
CITIZEN TJ THOMSON
Boise City councilman eyes Ada County Commission
LEARN TO PLAY BRIDGE
We welcome new members! Now is your chance to learn the world’s best card game. You have heard of it: now you can play it.
Beginning Bridge Lessons Boise City Councilman TJ Thomson had recently turned in the paperwork necessary to embark on the next chapter of his political career when he sat down to talk about his big decision. “Yes, I’ve just filed to officially run for Ada County Commissioner,” said Thomson, a twoterm city councilman. Before talking about his campaign priorities, he explained the No. 1 reason for seeking the county seat—and it’s personal “I’ve thought about running for county commissioner for some time,” Thomson said. “I have a very forgiving wife, Alisha, and we are still new parents, but at the end of the day, they’re why I’m in the race. Our child came from nothing but gave us everything.” Thomson beamed as he talked about his daughter, Sena, who was abandoned in Ethiopia as a one-month old. After waiting four years for an international adoption, Thomson and his wife were finally able to bring Sena home to Idaho in 2015. In keeping with the theme of change, Thomson will not compete to become an Ada County Commissioner. Councilman, I must admit that I wouldn’t have been surprised to see your political future at the Idaho Statehouse or continuing at Boise City Hall, but your announcement to run for county commissioner caught more than a few people oﬀ guard. I’m passionate about local government and I want to be where the rubber meets the road. I’ve been a part of significant change for the city of Boise: a decrease in crime rates, low unemployment, an environment where businesses can thrive and protection of the environment. Have you agreed or disagreed with most of the recent decisions of Ada County commissioners? I think the current commission has the best interests of citizens in mind. I hold them in high esteem. That said, I would say I don’t agree with everything they’ve done. What might you do diﬀerently? No. 1, the county has a unique tool to help businesses thrive: property tax relief for new or expanding businesses. But as it stands now, most businesses have to knock on the door of county and ask how they can take advantage of that. SimBOISE WEEKLY.COM
plot or Micron may know how to jump through those hoops, but smaller companies don’t. Are you saying Ada County does not have an economic revitalization plan that speciﬁcally uses the tool of property tax relief? That’s right. Our cities are working hard, but they need a partner and Ada County can be the center of that economic hub. My next issue concerns the importance of local control, and the best example of that is the Ada County Courthouse.

And the county has been tangled in legal battles for years with a number of cities that haven’t paid for Ada County court services. It’s time to get out of those legal battles. To be clear, are you saying cities shouldn’t have to pay for court services? That’s correct. Doesn’t Ada County need that revenue stream? Right now, it’s a cash cow. Right now, the city of Boise is the only one paying for those court services—they’re paying more than $1 million per year. That’s real money. Once again, are you saying Ada County doesn’t need that revenue? I’m saying that the courthouse was never intended to be a cash cow for Ada County. I don’t believe the county is relying on that money. Plus, there’s a lot of potential in finding taxpayer savings and reducing costs. Tell us where we can shrink country government. Animal control, planning and zoning, standardizing fire and building codes, energy audits. We should be looking for a number of savings opportunities. You’ve been able to run as an incumbent in the city of Boise with a good amount of success. Are you prepared to press the reset button of your political career? I believe that if we look at the issues I’m fighting for, citizens will look beyond party politics. I think the post of county commissioner is unique for my skill sets, interests and passion.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): “He in his madness prays for storms, and dreams that storms will bring him peace,” wrote Leo Tolstoy in his novella The Death of Ivan Ilych. The weird thing is, Aries, that this strategy might actually work for you in the coming days. The storms you pray for could work marvels. They might clear away the emotional congestion, zap the angst, and usher you into a period of dynamic peace. So I say: Dare to be gusty and blustery and turbulent.
a week for six and a half years. According to author William Deresiewicz, many young graphic designers no longer abide by that rule. They regard it as more essential to cultivate a network of connections than to perfect their artistic mastery. I advise you not to use that approach in the coming months, Gemini. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you will be better served by improving what you do rather than by increasing how many people you know.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Quoting poet W. H. Auden, author Maura Kelly says there are two kinds of poets: argument-makers and beauty-makers. I think that’s an interesting way to categorize all humans. Which are you? Even if you usually tend to be more of an argument-maker, I urge you to be an intense beauty-maker in the next few weeks. If you’re already a pretty good beauty-maker, I challenge you to become, at least temporarily, a greatbeauty-maker. One more thing: As much as possible, until April 1, choose beauty-makers as your companions.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): “I sit before flowers, hoping they will train me in the art of opening up,” says poet Shane Koyczan. “I stand on mountain tops believing that avalanches will teach me to let go.” I recommend his strategy to you in the coming weeks, Cancerian. Put yourself in the presence of natural forces that will inspire you to do what you need to do. Seek the companionship of people and animals whose wisdom and style you want to absorb. Be sufficiently humble to learn from the whole wide world through the art of imitation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): To have any hope of becoming an expert in your chosen field, you have to labor for at least 10,000 hours to develop the necessary skills—the equivalent of 30 hours
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The marathon is a long-distance foot race with an official length of more than 26 miles. Adults who are physically fit and well-trained can finish the course in five hours.
24 | MARCH 9–15, 2016 | BOISEweekly
But I want to call your attention to a much longer running event: the Self-Transcendence 3,100Mile Race. It begins every June in Queens, N.Y., and lasts until August. Those who participate do 3,100 miles’ worth of laps around a single city block, or about 100 laps per day. I think that this is an apt metaphor for the work you now have ahead of you. You must cover a lot of ground as you accomplish a big project, but without traveling far and wide. Your task is to be dogged and persistent as you do a little at a time, never risking exhaustion, always pacing yourself. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In old Vietnamese folklore, croaking frogs were a negative symbol. They were thought to resemble dull teachers who go on and on with their boring and pointless lectures. But in many other cultures, frogs have been symbols of regeneration and resurrection due to the dramatic transformations they make from egg to tadpole to full-grown adult. In ancient India, choruses of croaks were a sign of winter’s end, when spring rains arrived to fertilize the earth and bestow a promise of the growth to come. I suspect that the frog will be one of your emblems in the coming weeks, Virgo—for all of the above reasons. Your task is to overcome the boring stories and messages so as to accomplish your lively transformations.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Your anger is a gift.” So proclaims musician and activist Zack de la Rocha, of Rage Against the Machine. That statement is true for him on at least two levels. His fury about the systemic corruption that infects American politics has roused him to create many successful songs and enabled him to earn a very good living. I don’t think anger is always a gift for all of us, however. Too often, especially when it’s motivated by petty issues, it’s a self-indulgent waste of energy that can literally make us sick. Having said that, I do suspect that your anger in the coming week will be more like de la Rocha’s: productive, clarifying, healthy. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “Even now, all possible feelings do not yet exist,” says novelist Nicole Krauss. In the coming weeks, I suspect you will provide evidence of her declaration, Scorpio. You may generate an unprecedented number of novel emotions—complex flutters and flows and gyrations that have never before been experienced by anyone in the history of civilization. I think it’s important that you acknowledge and celebrate them as being unique—that you refrain from comparing them to feelings you’ve had in the past or feelings that other people have had. To harvest their full blessing, treat them as marvelous mysteries.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “Look at yourself then,” advised author Ray Bradbury. “Consider everything you have fed yourself over the years. Was it a banquet or a starvation diet?” He wasn’t talking about literal food. He was referring to the experiences you provide yourself with, to the people you bring into your life, to the sights and sounds and ideas you allow to pour into your precious imagination. Now would be an excellent time to take inventory of this essential question, Sagittarius. And if you find there is anything lacking in what you feed yourself, make changes. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): According to a report in the journal Science, most of us devote half of our waking time to thinking about something besides the activity we’re actually engaged in. We seem to love to ruminate about what used to be and what might have been and what could possibly be. Would you consider reducing that amount in the next 15 days, Capricorn? If you can manage to cut it down even a little, I bet you will accomplish small feats of magic that stabilize and invigorate your future. Not only that: You will feel stronger and smarter. You’ll have more energy. You’ll have an excellent chance to form an enduring habit of staying more focused on the here and now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): One of the legal financial scams that shattered the world economy in 2008 was a product called a Collateralized Debt Obligation Squared. It was sold widely, even though noted economist Ha-Joon Chang says that potential buyers had to read 1 billion pages of documents if they hoped to understand it. In the coming weeks, I think it’s crucial that you Aquarians avoid getting involved with stuff like that—with anything or anyone requiring such vast amounts of homework. If it’s too complex to evaluate accurately, stay uncommitted, at least for now. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “I wish I knew what I desire,” wrote Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, born under the sign of Pisces. “I wish I knew! I wish I knew!” If he were still alive today, I would have very good news for him, as I do for all of you Pisceans reading this horoscope. The coming weeks will be one of the best times ever—ever—for figuring out what exactly it is you desire. Not just what your ego yearns for. Not just what your body longs for. I’m talking about the whole shebang. You now have the power to home in on and identify what your ego, your body, your heart and your soul want more than anything else in this life.

PAGE BREAK MINERVA’S BREAKDOWN
FIND POLISH MOVIE POSTERS
DEAR MINERVA, I am the oldest sister of one bipolar, alcoholic sister and one meth-addicted sister who is obsessed with her young boyfriend. I have been estranged from both of them because I cannot tolerate their lifestyles. They both have three children each, whom I love and still talk to. The problem is, they tell their children that I am judgmental and that I think I am better than everyone because I have a college education (which is kind of just a normal thing these days, am I right?). I never talk about their mothers to them. I’m sick of my sisters bad-mouthing me. What should I do? —Not crazy and Not on Drugs
The formula for American movie posters is simple: Place the acting talent in the center of the poster and the source of dramatic tension in the background. In Poland, movie posters have an abundance of both consonants and artistic talent. The teaser for Lowca Androidow (Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner) was designed by Michal Ksiazek and features a woman in a bikini holding a gun cast only in white space. It’s polishpostershop.com yours for 70 Euro. Leszek Zebrowski’s take on Stanley Kubrick’s Clockwork Orange (Mechaniczna Pomarancza in Polish) shows a man’s face juxtaposed with a howling animal. They share an eye. Sadly, that one’s not currently available but you can sign up for the waiting list. For Krokodyl Dundee, Andrej Pagowski has the eponymous Mr. Dundee, his joyous eyes shadowed by a wide-brimmed hat, holding a terriﬁed child in a nest of multi-colored crocodiles.

Is Daylight Savings Time still necessary? Yes - 29.79%
DEAR NOT, Unfortunately, you cannot control what your sisters say about you. However, I can understand how they might feel judged by you. Within the ﬁrst two sentences, my readers know that both of your sisters have mental health and addiction issues and lifestyles you cannot “tolerate.” Since they are struggling with these difﬁcult issues, this would lead me to believe that neither of them are currently in their best space emotionally. Depending on how severe these issues are, they may not be capable of reeling it in at this time and, given your estrangement, talking to them seems an unlikely possibility. I commend you for keeping in touch with their children. Maintain a respectful rapport with their children and show them you are not the person others think you are. Best wishes.
