EDITOR’S NOTE DATE SAVING Shutterbugs take note: The deadline for Boise Weekly’s 14th annual Black-and-White Photo Contest is approaching and there have been a few changes to the process. First of all, you have until Wednesday, June 1 to submit your best non-color shots representing the themes of People, Places and Things. As always, the winner will be published on the cover, with a print date of Wednesday, June 15, and entered in the annual BW Cover Auction. Also as always, the $5 per entry fee goes into the prize money pot. You can submit as many entries as your black-and-white heart desires, but you’ll have to do so one at a time. Now, here’s what has changed: Our entry process has caught up to the 21st century and will be conducted digitally. Upload your pieces to bwphotocontest.boiseweekly.com and they’ll be voted on between Thursday, June 2 and Sunday, June 12 to select a People’s Choice winner. On the website you’ll find submission information, be able to view the current entries, vote on your favorites and scope the winners. The top spots will be selected by a sharp-eyed panel of photo loving judges, to be announced. The winner picked for the cover will be required to provide a highresolution copy of the image. As for the fine print, you have to be 13 years or older to participate, automated voting (aka ballot stuffing) is strictly prohibited and will result in the voiding of all spurious votes, and no employees of BW or their immediate family members are eligible to compete. If you want more fine print, you can find it under Official Rules on the contest website. While we’re saving dates, here’s another one to jot down on your calendar: Saturday, June 25 marks the BW’s 25th birthday celebration and it’s going to be a doozy. From noon to 6 p.m. we’re shutting down Broad and Sixth streets for The Big LeBoise block party.

OPINION GETAWAY TO HEAVEN The blessed relief of blissful retreat BILL COPE Sensitive readers might believe they have detected a restless ennui in my writing in recent weeks. You aren’t imagining it. I call it “campaign fatigue.” It started back when there were still enough Republican candidates to field a rugby team and has been steadily getting worse. I don’t hold the candidates exclusively responsible for my condition; there is plenty of blame to go around. Seriously, it wasn’t Trump that told MSNBC they had to use that same incessant, blaring, overly-heated, grating musical anthem for their election coverage, all day long, over and over and over and... gad, even thinking about it makes me feel like clawing my own ears off! So Bill, thought I, you could just turn off the television. Or at the least, tune it to one of those channels that never have news, like the ones that sell earrings and ladies shoes? But no, the temptation would be too great. It would be like trying to kick an Oxycontin habit by sticking your stash in your wife’s underwear drawer. Anyway, after hanging around to see who would come out winners in the New York primary, I decided I needed to excuse myself from the world for day or two—at least, that part of the world including anyone named Hillary, Bernie, Donald or Ted. But where to go that wouldn’t be just more of the same, constant rumble of people yelling at one another? That was a problem. Then I remembered the special ink stamp my orientation angel (O.A.) had given me on my last trip to Heaven. I know... I know... Most of you thought I just made all that stuff up about having a couple of near-death experiences last year. Yes, that much is true. But just because it was all a figment of my imagination doesn’t mean I didn’t have a good time there. Even those visions of the End Times my angel showed me were fun. You know... in a greatestdisaster-movie-ever-made way. I couldn’t actually see any remnants of the “Readmit One To Heaven” ink, but I figured anything an angel stamps on you is there to stay. I held my wrist up so it could be seen clearly from on high, and said “Yoo-hoo. Is anybody there?” Next thing you know, I’m standing at the Pearly Gates and my O.A. is waiting for me. ••• “What’s up, Bill? You forget something?” I explained how I was stressed by all the bad vibes down in America, that I needed some “me” time, and my O.A. took my hand and led me inside. “I know just how you feel. We’ve been processing all the souls coming in from Syria, and if you don’t think that’s a damn mess...” He trailed off, shaking his head in angelic consternation. (I should say, on the previous visits I couldn’t tell whether my angel was a “he” or a “she.” One minute B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
he’d look like David Bowie; the next Tilda Swinton dipped in flour. This time, it was all Bowie, a la his Thin White Duke phase. I think that’s a good sign for other aging rock super-stars, don’t you?) We came to the most exquisite, most serene Japanese-style rock garden imaginable and sat down on a simple stone bench. I commented that I was a little surprised to see they allowed something so zen-y in Heaven, and “Dave” said, “Oh sure. You don’t think we’d let some evangelical yahoo landscape this place, do you? Gad, it would all end up looking like the interior of a ’65 Cadillac. Now tell me, Bill. What can we do for you? A massage? Some aromatherapy, maybe?” I told him I just needed to catch my breath for a day or two and I didn’t think I could do it on Earth because of all that election noise. “I hear you, pal,” the angel said. “We’ve had this thing between Yahweh and Satan going on for about... what?... I guess it’s been a little over 6,000 years now. Sometimes I get so sick of it, I’m tempted to go with one of the third-party picks.” I sat quietly for a bit, contemplating what sort of nerve it would take to start a third party in competition with both God and the Devil. Then I asked if the average Heavenian was paying any attention at all to what was going on with the delegate fight and all that. “It’s hard to say,” he answered. “Normally, there are two things we discourage our folks from talking about here... religion and politics. But with Trump down there... you know, being Trump... it’s got everyone a little... how do you say it these days?... WTF!!!” “Yeah,” I said. “It’s hard to keep things in perspective when stuff like that’s happening.That’s why I wanted to get away for a while.” Angel Dave started to say something, but then he stiffened and groaned. “Ah, darn! Have to leave you on your own, Bill. Just got word of another car bombing in a Baghdad street market. Mostly kids and women.” “Anything I can do to help?” I asked. “Nah, you wouldn’t want to see that. You Americans may think you want to put things in perspective, but very few of you are ready for the kind of perspective we get here everyday.” He told me to wander around all I wanted and do my own thing untiI I was ready to get back to the grind. “Just don’t pick any flowers. Not unless you want to spend your next incarnation as a dandelion.” Sometime between now and November, I’ll try to tell you what happened on the rest of my getaway to Heaven. For now, suffice it to say, it’s the only time in my life I wished I’d had an iPhone on me. You wouldn’t believe some of the selfies I could have gotten. BOISEweekly | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | 5
OPINION FROM THE FAR MARGINS Armageddon
NICOLE LEFAVOUR As a child, I fixated on learning survival skills. My dad taught me to cast a fly rod and pick mushrooms and berries. His hunting and fishing skills had fed five cold and sometimes desperate men in the Arctic in the late 1950s after their canoes capsized in a rapid. One man was lost to hypothermia. My dad killed caribou after caribou, huge sea migrating trout and birds. But it was my mother who taught me to shoot a gun. She’d take me into the desert outside Challis and toss clay pigeons or stack cans. She taught me to fight with a knife, “Blade up so you can cut them if they try to grab you.” Young and wild, she lived nights and worked days as a secretary in New York City. Idaho is a long way from New York, Washington D.C., Boston, even Chicago—places where people cannot imagine the passage of laws as backward as ours. So, yes, I like a challenge. Politics interested me from day one. I was 10 when my parents were knocking on doors for Hunter S. Thompson’s Freak Power campaign for Pitkin County sheriff in Colorado in the early 1970s. I’ve seen political loss turn to disillusionment. I’ve seen marriages and close communities fall apart. I’ve seen people retreat into the wild, the arts or drink, or all of them, just to face the trajectory humanity seems intent on. We all find things that give us hope for our kids, our species or for ourselves. We do this with varying degrees of success or we do not, and instead crumble at the futility of trying to push our nation from a path where we further consolidate our masses of wealth into ever fewer hands, leaving the rest of us desperate to scrape by. I had a bit of an existential crisis in high school. I contemplated the worth of life without the ability to make other lives happier. I had found solutions in the high-school realization that I am not particularly motivated by my own life, but instead highly motivated by the plight of others. There are plenty of people out there across the political and religious spectrum who seem to set aside the idea of financial success in order to give themselves to causes and living a life within a set of values. I’ve lived a good life. I’ve seen sides of the world that are remote and spectacular in their pristine beauty, or vivid and lovely with the kindness of humanity. Maybe I get some peace knowing I’ve tried to make the world a better place, even just 6 | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | BOISEweekly
one student at a time by teaching, or with my voice, my relationships and my vote serving in elected office. Not all I’ve done has been popular. I’ve been a very intentional obstacle to those who would use power to inflict harm. I’ve tried to bring the weight of public opinion down on those who for too long have refused to do anything but stand by while others purposefully inflict harm. Those things let me sleep at night and they wake me—and millions like me—up in the morning to carry on the Sisyphean task of finding ways to make the human condition slightly better. Some days that is harder, like when a Confederate flag flies in the state I love and people I love feel fear. Like when I listen to some of the world’s most powerful and wealthy use their airtime to blame problems they created on immigrants and Muslims or racial and ethnic groups other than their own. It gets harder when I see our nation’s sense of justice and democracy fail under the weight of money and all that it buys. Human populations are like other social animals—we grow less kind and generous when we believe resources are scarce. This is particularly true when we’re told who to blame for scarcity; for loss; for our fears. It’s not difficult to create mobs of monsters. Anger makes ordinary people irrational. We can be manipulated when we’re afraid and neither Donald Trump nor Ted Cruz is afraid to do it. Adolf Hitler did it and created a mob that expected him to follow through on his rhetoric until people began to die— and they did in gas chambers, and of starvation, and by gunshot wounds because the people demanded it, having been told those who died were the source of all their ills, woe and scarcity. It makes sense lately that I dream mostly of armageddon—violence, loss of life, great disaster and strife. In the context of these dreams, my daily waking life seems reasonable, my goals attainable. Still, we walk in a shadow and, regardless of what we believe about any politician’s intent to follow through on his words, some of those men have created angry mobs with a set of expectations that should give us all a reason to get up in the morning and do our best to make the plight of humanity better, our fears and scarcity lesser, and our generosity greater.

Welcome to Emerald House, the anti-Cooper court GEORGE PRENTICE The living quarters are tight at what has been dubbed “Emerald House,” with seven adults living under one roof, and sharing a bathroom, kitchen and living room. Given the cramped conditions, JoJo and Kelly—two of the residents—were anxious to move the tour of the home into the back yard. “Isn’t this nice?” asked JoJo, smiling, a fresh load of laundry drying on the line behind her. “And to think that we call this home. It’s really something, hmm?” The contrast is stark from August 2015, as tensions began rising around the rapidly spreading downtown tent city that would come to be known as Cooper Court. JoJo, Kelly and their five housemates—all of whom are chronically homeless—lived in Cooper Court, even though the controversial encampment was anything but a place to put down roots. As the tent city grew, so did frustration and anger as Boise engaged in a public debate over what role, if any, the city should take in caring for the scores of men and women who spent their days and nights in Cooper Court instead of in a shelter. “It seems like a dream now,” said JoJo. “No, it was a bad dream.” She said she was remembering the drizzly December day when Boise police barricaded the perimeter of Cooper Court, and removed all of its residents. Boise officials insisted there was ample space in the area’s shelters, while advocates of the homeless argued the multiple reasons why many of the chronically homeless struggled with staying in near-capacity shelters at night, which they were kicked out of at sunrise. What some people may not know is at the same time, an equally intense debate was boiling up inside the walls of Interfaith Sanctuary, the shelter just steps away from Cooper Court.
A CHANGE AT THE TOP
Interfaith Sanctuary provides around 165 beds for men, women and children. “I think it’s fair to say that the Interfaith board of directors was split,” said Jodi Peterson, a former nine-year volunteer at Interfaith, now the shelter’s development and program director. “Some believed that we should be better neighbors, but there were some people saying that the population of Cooper Court was dangerous and we should stay away. And frankly, I believed them at first.” B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
Permits for nine of 10 “temporary” lots along Front Street have lapsed or never existed.
SEVERAL DOWNTOWN BOISE PARKING LOTS OPERATING WITHOUT A PERMIT
Interfaith Sanctuary’s new development and program director Jodi Peterson (center), joins JoJo (left) and Kelly (right) at home at Emerald House, a response to Cooper Court.
Everything changed for Peterson on Sept. 10, 2015. “That’s when Curtis and I were driving back to Boise from McCall,” she said, referring to internationally known Idaho musician Curtis Stigers, who is also Peterson’s fiancee. Stigers had performed at a benefit concert and Peterson said they were bringing some extra water bottles back from the charity event. “I know a bottle of water sounds so simple, but we were warned to stay away and not bring anything over to Cooper Court. That just felt wrong,” said Peterson. “What I saw when we brought them water was a group of really sick people, yet they were taking care of one another.” Peterson said because she was a contract employee, supervising a once-a-week music program for Interfaith Sanctuary, the shelter’s management didn’t stop her from bringing more donations to Cooper Court, including food, sleeping bags, tents and clothing. Over the next three months, as Cooper Court gained in notoriety, so did Peterson as she regularly advocated for the tent city’s occupants via her Facebook page. When Cooper Court was swept by city officials on Dec. 3, 2015, Peterson was vocal about her fears of what might happen to its former residents. “And then, that night, a woman saw me on TV and somehow she got a hold of me and said, ‘I think I can help. I have a house,’” said Peterson. That house turned out to be what is nowEmerald House. Residents have asked for the exact address not be disclosed. In the meantime, Interfaith Sanctuary was reeling from its internal debate over Cooper
Court. The split led to the April 1 resignation of the shelter’s longtime director, Jayne Sorrels, and Peterson said the board asked her to step in and “settle things down a bit.” “Eventually, it evolved into a new full-time position and now I’m the new development and program director for Interfaith,” she said. “I didn’t know I would be ready for that, but here I am.” Among the other bridges in need of rebuilding, she said, is a working relationship with the city. “There was a time when the mayor was a bit mad at me, but that was at the height of Cooper Court,” said Peterson. “I know in my heart that the mayor wanted to do the right thing, but had no idea how to do it. It was a difficult time.”
Two months after dismantling Cooper Court, Bieter called a press conference to say the tent city was a “stark example of a model that was unsustainable.” More important, he said, the city was prepared to partner with the Boise City/ Ada County Housing Authority, CATCH, Terry Reilly Health Services and the Idaho Housing and Finance Association to build a “housing first” approach to combat chronic homelessness. “The best alternative is to get someone in a safe, clean place to live first,” said Bieter. “Only then can you get to the root causes of homelessness.” Bieter added the city would begin soliciting requests for proposals from area nonprofits and caregivers to provide 8 services for 25 to 30 housing units. In particular, he said, the project would be
There are all kinds of technical names— deficit, shortage, shortfall, insufficiency— when it comes to the lack of parking spaces in downtown Boise. The term most bandied about at Boise City Hall lately is “crunch,” and there is plenty being discussed regarding downtown Boise’s future parking needs. Earlier this year, Michigan-based Carl Walker, Inc., which was commissioned to study Boise parking, updated its previous analyses from 2009 and 2014 and concluded in its newest study that Boise faces “dramatic growth in parking demand” for at least the next five years, and there is a “greater sense of urgency related to crafting a new strategic plan,” including better utilization of existing parking. City planning officials couldn’t agree more and even concede they’ve done a lousy job in keeping track of as many as 10 parking lots lining the highly-visible Front Street corridor. In fact, seven of the 10 lots, each deemed “temporary,” have allowed their permits to lapse, with one expiring as long ago as 2012—the Ada County employee parking lot at 200 Front St. was never even officially permitted for parking. “We think the lot was permitted for a building but it eventually became a lot,” said city of Boise Zoning Manager Scott Spjute in an April 19 presentation to the City Council. “It was never permitted as a temporary parking lot.” Yet another “temporary” lot, this one at 406 Fourth St. in Boise’s Central Addition, has never been officially permitted for parking and there is no application on file. In 1991, the city of Boise amended its code to allow so-called “temporary” lots with permits lasting two years but eligible for annual renewals. During an economic slump in the mid-’90s, city code was updated to allow five-year permits for so-called “interim” parking lots, but the city 8 scrapped that policy two years later and reverted back to the “temporary” BOISEweekly | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | 7

two-year permitting process, allowing for up to three one-year extensions. A review of city records reveals seven lots—406 Fourth St., 406 Fifth St., 350 E. Myrtle St., 1101 Front St., 116 Sixth St., 329 Grove St. and 1110 S. Oakland Ave.—have expired permits. An eighth, 520 Front St., has a permit that expires in August. The ninth and tenth lots, 406 Fourth St. and the Ada County employee lot at 200 Front St., never had applications on file. “We haven’t tracked them well,” said Spjute, who asked the council for some direction on how to proceed. “The first step is to bring all of the non-compliant lots into compliance,” said Council President Elaine Clegg. “This just hasn’t been fair to the owners of lots who have been properly permitted.” Councilman Scot Ludwig said he agreed all the unpermitted lots needed to be brought up to code, but quickly added he didn’t want to see any undue enforcement that might result in lot closures. “Those lots are absolutely important to fuel downtown growth. Do you know why Microsoft is in this community and not in Denver right now? Because of their absolute need to have a nearby temporary parking lot,” said Ludwig. “At least for now—and this is a bit of a boom time—I would highly recommend that the temporary lots be put on a short leash but not with a termination date. I think the marketplace needs to drive this.” Clegg pushed back against the idea of open-ended permits for temporary lots. “Yes, there’s a parking crunch right now, but I still think there should be a time limit on temporary lots,” she said. “I don’t think we should be terminating anybody right now, but we should have some idea of what the owners’ plans are for their property.” As for the immediate future, Spjute said the message is clear: Get those temporary lots permitted. 7
—George Prentice 8 | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | BOISEweekly
GEORGE PRENTICE When the Boise City Council was asked to weigh in on a proposed private airstrip in the Boise Foothills they had some choice words: dangerous, disruptive, even audacious. Little did they know that the man, identified only as an Alaska resident, had already been landing his Piper “Supercub” in the Foothills. “We can confirm that the man contacted the Ada County Development Services Department and said he had been using the property for a landing strip,” said Kate McGwire, Ada County public information officer. “We informed him that he would need to apply for a permit and once he was told that he had to get that permit, he stopped using the land as an airstrip.” When asked about the airstrip, proposed on land about a quarter of a mile east of N. Alto
Via Court and Table Rock Road, officials with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game said they had “primary concerns of disturbance” to wintering elk and deer, adding, “the presence of wildlife on the airstrip would make it unusable.” The Boise Fire and Parks and Recreation departments also recommended denial.
The Ada County Planning and Zoning Commission will have the final say in the matter. “It all comes down to Thursday, May 5 at 6 p.m.,” said McGwire. “That’s when we’ll have a public hearing on the proposal and the P and Z Commission should then decide on the issue.”
geared to address the chronically homeless, defined as individuals with a disabling condition who have been continuously homeless for a year or more or have had at least four episodes of homelessness in the past three years. A second prong of the initiative, dubbed “Housing First Scattered Sites,” would call for up to 15 existing homes to be used as permanent housing while CATCH and Terry Reilly would provide much-needed services to the residents. “Creating Housing First options is an investment in breaking this reactive cycle and a step toward proactive efforts that will save money and lives,” said Bieter. The mayor didn’t know Emerald House could be a part of a “housing first” solution. Few people knew of the anonymous donation from the woman who called Peterson to say she had a home to donate. “I’ve been very quiet about this,” Peterson said. “We wanted to do this right and not scare anybody away. You may remember that we had a possible solution last winter from a local RV park, but the media attention scared them off.”
That plan was to allow as many as 20 chronically homeless individuals to stay for at least a few months at Boise Riverside RV Park in Garden City. When the idea got a fair amount of Idaho media attention, the owners said too many of the park’s other occupants worried about the controversy, so the plan was scuttled. “So, we’ve taken this step by step, beginning with rental agreements,” said Peterson. A volunteer from Concordia University Law School helped craft rental agreements with special “opt-in behavioral clauses” that require Emerald House tenants to treat themselves and each other with respect. The model, Peterson said, came from similar agreements used in Eugene, Ore.-based Opportunity Village, a tinyhome community for the homeless. “Our Emerald House tenants have promised sweat equity. They’re keeping up the house, they’re gardening, making any necessary repairs,” said Peterson. “Next, we needed mentors, and we’ve had a number of social work students from Boise State University.” Additionally, Peterson said, social workers have been coming by the home to link up
Emerald House tenants with food stamps, Social Security benefits, medical assistance and even job coaching. “We’re pretty excited,” said Peterson. “One of our Emerald House tenants just secured a construction job. It will be his first job in some time.” As for neighbors, the residents said they’ve had nothing but positive reactions because, for the most part, they said things were so quiet at Emerald House. A quick survey of the neighborhood indicates the house is surrounded by about 70 percent commercial and 30 percent residential. “It’s a rather perfect neighborhood for our purposes,” said Peterson. But Emerald House is a long way from perfect because, Peterson said, each of the residents is still wrestling with his or her demons. “It’s fair to say that Emerald House will be here for a while,” she said. “And the folks living there? Well they’ll be better…” Peterson took a long pause before finishing her thought. “You know what? It’ll be awhile before they’re all better. But hey, we’ve already seen what the alternative looks like, haven’t we?”
The owner of this “Supercub” landed his plane in the Boise Foothills before asking Ada County officials for a permit to build a landing strip, north of Table Rock.

OPERA IDAHO: GLORY DENIED
Col. Floyd “Jim” Thompson holds an unenviable record. Captured by the Viet Cong and held captive March 1964-March 1973, Thompson spent more time in captivity than any other American POW of the Vietnam War. His story was told in the 2001 book Glory Denied: The Vietnam Saga of Jim Thompson, America’s LongestHeld Prisoner of War. The book isn’t an obvious candidate for an adaptation, but American composer Tom Cipullo saw it differently. His acclaimed 2007 chamber opera Glory Denied takes lyrics right from the pages of the book. Opera Idaho will showcase the nontraditional work in a non-traditional space: the Aviation Specialties Unlimited hangar at Boise Airport. Due to language and subject matter, audience discretion is advised. 7:30 p.m. each night, $24-$48. Aviation Specialties Unlimited, 4632 W.

Can you dig it? We knew you could.

INCITE, APRIL 29, KNITTING FACTORY
In a couple of days, BoDo will rattle with the sounds of DevilDriver, Holy Grail, Incite, Hemlock and Mortal Enemy, and when Incite drops its first savage note its fourth and spanking-new album will be barely a week old. Oppression (Minus Head Records; April 22, 2016) comes two years after 2014’s Up In Hell, which many fans and critics saw as the definitive example of Incite coming into its own. Now, the explosive Oppression illuminates the Arizona-born band’s evolution, particularly its ability to throw down tight, brutal groove metal—and how to choose (or at least work with) a producer. Steve Evetts’, an accomplished producer, engineer, mixer and instrumentalist, has worked with a wide range of emo, metal, punk and rock bands, like Dillinger Escape Plan, Poison the Well, The Misfits, The Cure, Basque rockers Berri Txarrak and hundreds more. Evetts even worked with death/groove/thrash metal trailblazers Sepultura—cool not only because, well, Sepultura, but because Incite vocalist Richie Cavalera is the son of Sepultura co-founder Max Cavalera. The younger Cavalera has learned from one of the best, worked with one of the best and is proud of the results, telling Alternative Press, “This is an album full of aggression, frustration and pure energy. From beginning to end, you get a constant metal feel that’s organic and crushing … I couldn’t be any more fired up than I am right now.” —Amy Atkins 7 p.m., $10-$35.The Knitting Factory, 416 S.

Harold Carver said it best: “Victory!”
BCT PERFORMS MARGIN OF ERROR, REVEALS SEASON’S PLAYS
Political strategist Harold Carver likes to think of himself as a “legend.” A Republican miracle worker and notorious shyster, his tagline is “Victory!”—even in the face of defeat. Carver, played to oversized perfection by Richard Klautsch in Boise Contemporary Theater’s production of Margin of Error, smears everyone around him in “honey” and “shit” but prefers to get as little of either on himself as possible. People are either “data points” or clients represented by color-coded cellphones kept in carry-on luggage by his faithful intern, Daphne Anderson (Veronica Von Tobel). Fogged-in at the Boise Airport and juggling four political campaigns on the brink of disaster, they’re also trapped in a lopsided drama between Carver’s political animalism and the humanity of the people he has been manipulating his entire professional life. Written by Eric Coble and directed by BCT Artistic Director Matthew Cameron Clark, the play is a glimpse into the inevitable moment when the pupil must push back against the mentor. Hopelessly outmatched against Carver’s personality and worldview, Anderson at first can only intuit the disingenuousness in treating voters like pawns and propping up incompetent politicians with outright trickery. Her growing intolerance of her mentor’s cynicism drives the plot but Carver drives the play. His philosophy is too ugly for audiences to identify with, but he’s still the most compelling thing on stage. Margin shows how ingrained cynicism is in the system, and how the only defense against it is moral vigilance. Unfortunately, Coble has written a character loud enough to shout over that message. Up against a combination of deceit, marital problems and legal inquiries (but still flush with optimism and charisma), he raises his fists to God and shouts, “Victory!” It’s also a comedy. From Anderson’s duty to manage an absurd number of cellphones—each a direct link to a political battle—to Carver’s high-school class ring (he claims to have dropped out of college), the play is full of explosive personalities and humorous details. Ahead of BCT’s April 22 performance of Margin of Error, Clark revealed the 2016-17 play schedule, including rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch, A Nighttime Survival Guide, Where Did We Sit on the Bus and The Clean House. —Harrison Berry BOISEweekly | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | 17

WRITE AND WRONG
The sadly disappointing Papa: Hemingway in Cuba GEORGE PRENTICE There are so many reasons to want to like Papa: Hemingway in Cuba. Unfortunately its script and acting aren’t two of them. Note that I wanted to endorse this film, the first American big-screen production to be filmed in the Communist nation in a half century. Plus, there is plenty for Idahoans to anticipate, considering that Hemingway lived (and died) here and Papa: Hemingway in Cuba is definitely in need of a rewrite. Too bad Hemingway wasn’t available. that his granddaughter, Oscar-nominee and Ketchum native Mariel Hemingway, even makes with United States governmental agencies, and to on the screenplay for Papa, an autobiographical a brief cameo in the movie. check a box indicating that she was going to Cuba telling of how he, as a young newspaperman in Papa has a fairly passable skeletal structure. on a ‘cultural endeavor’” rather than to film Papa.

SCREEN EXTRA UPENDING EXPECTATIONS
In each major award category at the 2016 Oscars in February, the nominees were white. So blanched were they that it kicked off a Twitter hashtag, #OscarsSoWhite—a reminder that people of color are sorely underrepresented in American cinema. It’s a problem for the disability community, as well. “I probably shouldn’t name films, but I Am Sam, with Sean Penn,” said Arc-Idaho Programs Director Nicole Lang. “An actual actor with an intellectual disability should have played 18 | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | BOISEweekly
that role. In films or in television, when the character has [intellectual development disorder], there is an actor with IDD playing that part.” In I Am Sam, Penn plays a man living with an intellectual disability and struggling for custody of his daughter. The film drew fire because Penn does not have IDD. That criticism doesn’t apply to the films that will be shown at the sixth annual Sprout Film Festival, set to take place Friday-Saturday, April 29-30, at The Egyptian Theatre and The Flicks. Organized by Lang, each of the films

Lang said audiences might be surprised at how upbeat they can be. “A lot of times people think it might be sad or about someone’s struggle. ... It’s more uplifting than many people imagine,” she said. The films include shorts like Be My Brother, a 2009 film about a man with IDD charming a woman at a bus stop.

WINESIPPER SPRING INTO ITALIAN WHITES
I’ve read that Italy produces twice as much red wine as white (it’s on the Internet so it must be true) but, according to Italy’s National Institute of Statistics, white wine production edged out red in 2015. You will probably find twice as many reds in most wine shops, but Italy also has a world of outstanding whites. Nothing against the grape, but for this tasting we decided to explore beyond the oh-so-popular Pinot Grigios. 2014 AZIENDA AGRICOLA PIEROPAN SOAVE CLASSICO, $20 From the Veneto region in northeast Italy, this is a blend of Soave’s principal grape, Garganega and Trebbiano. Lovely aromas of melon and lime are colored by touches of ginger, fresh herb and mineral. The flavors are a mix of ripe peach and pear, balanced by tangy lemon, lime and orange, with a touch of white pepper on the finish. 2014 RIOFAVARA MIZZICA MOSCATO DI NOTO, $18 From the southernmost corner of Sicily, this Moscato is unusual in that it is fermented bone dry. There’s a juicy blast of lychee nut on the nose, along with plush apricot, pear, floral honeysuckle, lime and coriander. A lush richness marks the palate as well, offering ripe stone fruit flavors and a hit of citrus zest on the chalky finish. 2014 TERREDORA DI PAOLO FALANGHINA IRPINIA, $17 Falanghina is a grape variety native to Campania in southern Italy. Here, it opens with floral quince, pear and pineapple, along with hints of tarragon and mineral. In the mouth it is lean and lively, filled with bright citrus flavors that turn ripe and rich on the finish. Definitely a food friendly entry. —David Kirkpatrick B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M

CITIZEN JAKE ELLIS
The retired battalion chief now dousing political fires GEORGE PRENTICE
Jake Ellis knows a thing or two about putting out fires, both literal and metaphorical. “Prevention is way more cost-effective than response,” said Ellis, 55, a retired battalion chief for the Boise Fire Department and now a candidate for the Idaho House of Representatives in West Ada County’s District No. 15. In fact, Ellis helped investigate the aftermath of a January Day 1992 blaze at the Idaho Statehouse. “There were a number of reasons why that fire spread, but there was definitely a lack of planning,” said Ellis. Having worked much of his career at Boise Fire Station No. 5, the then-busiest station in the state, Ellis rose through the ranks from firefighter to driver, captain and finally spent six years as a battalion chief. In between stints of aggressive door-knocking campaigning, Ellis spent a few minutes with Boise Weekly to talk about his political motivations and a life of eating smoke. Did you dream of being a firefighter? Not really. I really wanted to go to college and, in between semesters, I spent eight fire seasons fighting range fires for the Bureau of Land Management. Some of those fire seasons lasted longer than others, stretching out my college career. Why are you a Democrat? I’m socially liberal but fiscally conservative. So does that mean you’ve voted for as many Republicans as Democrats? I have. What do you consider to be your proudest votes? [Governors] Phil Batt and Cecil Andrus. And on a national level? Obama. I believe in the message of change. Are you leaning one way or another among the current crop of presidential candidates? I’m a fan of Bernie Sanders. I like the idea of living in a free market society yet taking care of your fellow man… and woman. To those who say Sen. Sanders is simply advocating for a redistribution of wealth, you would say… 20 | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | BOISEweekly
There’s already a redistribution of wealth. It’s just gone to the wealthy. You were with the Boise Fire Department for 27 years. When you hear a siren, does your blood still rush? Not at all. That’s when it’s time to retire. Every political insider I know has told me to keep an eye on District 15 and how it’s ripe for change. That said, you’re up against a rather popular incumbent, Rep. Pat McDonald. What’s your path to victory? My opponent supported House Bill 311 in 2015, a major tax cut for the wealthy, which would have taken nearly $70 million out of the general fund. It makes no sense to me to say you’re in favor of improving education while taking that much money out of the general fund. To that end, is education near the top of your agenda? The cost of attending college is too high. To lower tuition cost, you’ve got to send in a lot more from the general fund. Where is that money going to come from? We leave way too much money on the table in tax exemptions and inappropriate expenditures. I am not saying I want to raise taxes. I’m saying we have to take a very hard look at our exemptions and prioritize the funds we have. How about the issue of Idaho’s minimum wage? It still sits at $7.25. Nationwide, they’re talking about a $15 wage. Where should it be in Idaho? I think $10 would be a good start. But those efforts have died a quick death at the Idaho Statehouse. Idaho is above ideology. The people of Idaho know what’s true. Too often, the Legislature is out of touch with Idaho. I would be remiss if I didn’t ask about your wristband device tracking your every move. My goal is 7,000 steps a day. That’s a challenge. I’m up for more than one challenge lately.

delusion and lovingly devoted to a worthy goal.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “We have to learn how to live with our frailties,” poet Stanley Kunitz told The Paris Review. “The best people I know are inadequate and unashamed.” That’s the keynote I hope you will adopt in the coming weeks. No matter how strong and capable you are, no matter how hard you try to be your best, there are ways you fall short of perfection. And now is a special phase of your astrological cycle when you can learn a lot about how to feel at peace with that fact.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY ARIES (March 21-April 19): The oracle I’m about to present may be controversial. It contains advice that most astrologers would never dare to offer an Aries. But I believe you are more receptive than usual to this challenge, and I am also convinced that you especially need it right now. Are you ready to be pushed further than I have ever pushed you? Study this quote from novelist Mark Z. Danielewski: “Passion has little to do with euphoria and everything to do with patience. It is not about feeling good. It is about endurance. Like patience, passion comes from the same Latin root: pati.” TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’re in a phase of your cycle when you’ll be rewarded for your freshness and originality. The more you cultivate a “beginner’s mind,” the smarter you will be. What you want will become more possible to the degree that you shed everything you think you know about what you want. As the artist Henri Matisse said, if a truly creative painter hopes to paint a rose, he or she “first has to forget all the roses that were ever painted.” What would be the equivalent type of forgetting in your own life? GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “Am I still a hero if the only person I save is myself?” asks poet B. Damani. If you posed that question to me right now, I would reply, “Yes,
Gemini. You are still a hero if the only person you save is yourself.” If you asked me to elaborate, I’d say, “In fact, saving yourself is the only way you can be a hero right now. You can’t rescue or fix or rehabilitate anyone else unless and until you can rescue and fix and rehabilitate yourself.” If you pushed me to provide you with a hint about how you should approach this challenge, I’d be bold and finish with a flourish: “Now I dare you to be the kind of hero you have always feared was beyond your capacity.” CANCER (June 21-July 22): “We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible,” declares psychotherapist Thomas Moore. I agree. Our mental health thrives when we can have candid conversations with free spirits who don’t censor themselves and don’t expect us to water down what we say. This is always true, of course, but it will be an absolute necessity for you in the coming weeks. So I suggest that you do everything you can to put yourself in the company of curious minds that love to hear and tell the truth. Look for opportunities to express yourself with extra clarity and depth. “To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion,” says Moore, “but it involves courage and risk.” LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I watched a video of a helicopter
24 | APRIL 27 – MAY 3, 2016 | BOISEweekly
pilot as he descended from the sky and tried to land his vehicle on the small deck of a Danish ship patrolling the North Sea. The weather was blustery and the seas were choppy. The task looked at best strenuous, at worst impossible. The pilot hovered patiently as the ship pitched wildly. Finally there was a brief calm, and he seized on that moment to settle down safely. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you may have a metaphorically similar challenge in the coming days. To be successful, all you have to do is be alert for the brief calm, and then act with swift, relaxed decisiveness. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “Show me a man who isn’t a slave,” wrote the Roman philosopher Seneca. “One is a slave to sex, another to money, another to ambition; all are slaves to hope or fear.” Commenting on Seneca’s thought, blogger Ryan Holiday says, “I’m disappointed in my enslavement to self-doubt, to my resentment towards those that I dislike, to the power that the favor and approval of certain people hold over me.” What about you, Virgo? Are there any emotional states or bedeviling thoughts or addictive desires that you’re a slave to? The coming weeks will be a favorable time to emancipate yourself. As you do, remember this: There’s a difference between being compulsively driven by a
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “Everyone who has ever built a new heaven first found the power to do so in his own hell.” That noble truth was uttered by Libran philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, and I bet it will be especially meaningful for most of you during the rest of 2016. The bad news is that in the past few months you’ve had to reconnoiter your own hell a little more than you would have liked, even if it has been pretty damn interesting. The good news is that these explorations will soon be winding down. The fantastic news is that you are already getting glimpses of how to use what you’ve been learning. You’ll be wellprepared when the time comes to start constructing a new heaven. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Zugzwang is a German-derived word used in chess and other games. It refers to a predicament in which a player cannot possibly make a good move. Every available option will weaken his or her position. I propose that we coin a new word that means the opposite of zugzwang: zugfrei, which shall hereafter signify a situation in which every choice you have in front of you is a positive or constructive one; you cannot make a wrong move. I think this captures the essence of the coming days for you, Scorpio.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): How do plants reproduce? They generate seeds that are designed to travel. Dandelion and orchid seeds are so light they can drift long distances through the air. Milkweed seeds are a bit heavier, but are easily carried by the wind. Foxglove and sycamore seeds are so buoyant they can float on flowing water. Birds and other animals serve as transportation for burdock seeds, which hook onto feather and fur. Fruit seeds may be eaten by animals and later excreted, fully intact, far from their original homes. I hope this meditation stimulates you to think creatively about dispersing your own metaphorical seeds, Capricorn. It’s time for you to vividly express your essence, make your mark, spread your influence.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “It is a fault to wish to be understood before we have made ourselves clear to ourselves,” said philosopher Simone Weil. I hope that prod makes you feel a bit uncomfortable, Aquarius. I hope it motivates you to get busy investigating some of your vague ideas and fuzzy self-images and confused intentions. It will soon be high time for you to ask for more empathy and acknowledgment from those whose opinions matter to you. You’re overdue to be more appreciated, to be seen for who you really are. But before any of that good stuff can happen, you will have to engage in a flurry of introspection. You’ve got to clarify and deepen your relationship with yourself. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): “I have never let my schooling interfere with my education,” said writer Mark Twain. That’s excellent advice for you to apply and explore in the coming weeks. Much of the time, the knowledge you have accumulated and the skills you have developed are supreme assets. But for the immediate future, they could obstruct you from learning the lessons you need most. For instance, they might trick you into thinking you are smarter than you really are. Or they could cause you to miss simple and seemingly obvious truths that your sophisticated perspective is too proud to notice. Be a humble student, my dear.

Advice for those on the verge
The same year I lost my partner, my friend was diagnosed with HIV. We are both grieving in different ways. This has strained our friendship to the point where we may no longer be friends. How can we help each other heal from two very different tragedies? —Moving apart
You are both mourning in similar ways. Life sucks so hard sometimes and we get hit out of the blue with difficult obstacles. This test of your friendship should be one that you can both pass with flying colors. For you, your experiences and love for your partner will live on in your heart and mind—in a way—keeping your partner alive as well. Though definitely a life-changer, HIV is no longer a death sentence. While he may not be mourning the loss of his actual life, he is definitely mourning the loss of what his life once was, which could feel similar. Neither of you will be the same people ever again. Hopefully you can take some of the love that you have left to soothe each other’s pain. What has happened cannot be changed. Your partner is gone and at this point, his HIV isn’t going anywhere. You can change the course your friendship is on. Give each other a lot of leeway to feel how you are going to feel. What would be a true tragedy is to let your friendship die while you both still have so much life left to live.

To be honest, sometimes we like gizmos because of their kitschy names but it’s even better when they make our lives easier. You can find a discount slicer and huller just about anywhere but these delightful doo-dads, the “Strawberry Slicester” and the “Stemgem,” which sell for for $7.50 and $14.99, respectively (TV shopping channels are bundling both for $18.92), are particularly neat kitchen gadgets by Seattle-based Chef’n. The Strawberry Slicester, $14.99 Slicester is swell for its safety and and Strawberry Stemgem, for evenly slicing berries with one $7.99, Chefn.com squeeze, and we like the StemBuy both at qvc.com, $18.92 gem because it extends easily into the strawberry, removes the hull and leaves so much of the fruity flesh intact. These stainless steel/durable plastic gadgets are significantly safer than a knife and are kid-friendly with very little supervision. —George Prentice
