EDITOR’S NOTE COPING WITH A BIG CHANGE I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t Bill Cope’s idea to retire his column, which has been published in Boise Weekly for more than 20 years. Sure, he has admitted on a few occasions that he felt burnt out, that words have sometimes been harder to spit out onto the page than they should be or inspiration was nowhere to be found. He knew there would come a time when, as he said, “either I would outgrow Boise Weekly or Boise Weekly would outgrow me.” Neither of those things are necessarily true, and I think Bill probably would have happily continued to fill his half-page each week until there really was nothing left to say—and we all know that would never happen with Bill. His departure from the pages of BW is driven by a number of things. First, we have to do a lot with what space and freelance funds we have each week, and often that means sacrificing content. Trimming back our opinion section will give us much needed flexibility, which leads to the second factor in making our decision: There are many other voices in the community that should be heard. Again, more flexibility will allow us to feature more and varied perspectives. Third, and Bill himself told me a month or so ago, that 20+ years is a long time to be grinding on a deadline. You may or may not know this, but Bill is also an author, and an author needs time and freedom to work. Stepping back from the weekly churn—which also included two lengthy posts per week on boiseweekly.com—will give him the brain space to focus on those bigger projects. It’s going to be weird around here without Bill. He and I had a longstanding phone appointment on Thursday mornings, which will feel strange to skip. He will always be part of the Boise Weekly’s DNA, as evidenced by the almost 40-pages of his articles archived on boiseweekly.com—and those only go back to 2004. Bill has plenty more to say on Page 5, so I’ll leave it to him. I’ll finish by saying it’s been a privilege to work with him and to have read him since I first picked up a copy of BW in 1999. I’m looking forward to seeing what he comes up with next. —Zach Hagadone

Part Two: The end of the end BILL COPE And here is my final column for Boise Weekly. It has been an honor and a joy to be allowed this forum. We all have opinions, but to be given the opportunity to share those opinions with so many—and from a vantage considerably more prestigious than a bar stool—has been one of the high points of my life. I cannot end it and not again give my profound thanks to the people who made it possible. BW founders Larry Regan and Andy HeddenNicely took me on, bless their hearts. And bless the subsequent owners, publishers and editors who were kind enough to keep me on, especially the generous and energetic Sally Freeman. Her dedication to this paper and the town it represents is astonishing, and the people of Boise should know it. If memory serves correctly, I have reported weekly to a succession of 13 different editors. Dave Madison, Bob Steel, Shea Anderson, Rachael Daigle and Zach Hagadone were standouts, each leaving an indelible print on the development of both the paper and myself. I’ve been proud to call them friends. In fact, I have many friends now that I wouldn’t have, if not for these two decades of working around such talented, bright people. I must acknowledge Agatha Christie for my title these past two weeks and to those readers who’ve sent kind cards and letters over the years, I apologize for not always returning... “Cope! Say it ain’t so! Tell me y’r playin’ another one o’ them dumb jokes what y’r always cookin’ up!” “Red, I wish I could. But it’s true. This is it.” “But all them years together! But all them dispussions we had! All them tender momen’s we shared!” “Tender moments? Red, we’ve spent the last 20-some years arguing politics like a couple of grumpy uncles.” “Gull durnit, it weren’t all arguin’. Like when y’r daughter coul’n’t show up an’ sing in her little kid Christmas play acause she had the croup. Or when she gradualated on out o’ highschool and went off t’ college. Or when y’r daddy died... n’ y’r momma. Ya’ can’t deny there was some tender momen’s.” “Red... buddy. I didn’t realize you were paying attention all those times.” “’Course I was payin’ attentions! I was there ever time, Cope. Ever gull durn dang time. I been there whether you knew it or not. Good times an’ bad.”... “I was there too, dippy.

“Badger! Gosh, I’m glad you could make it. And listen, you guys, you’re like weird, crazy, cranky ghost brothers, or something, but I don’t know if I could have done it without you. Honestly, you’ve bailed me out more times than anyone will ever know. And I’m sorry if you feel like I exploited you for material.” “And thanks for splitting the paycheck with us, you selfish p***k.” “Aw jeez, Bob. I’m going to miss you. You too, Red. I mean that.” “You’re not going to sit around on your a** and fester, I hope. It’s in your bones to be a f***ing know-it-all. If you try to stop cold turkey, you’ll end up one of those guys who hang out on bar stools, muttering about how the whole world is going to sh**. You ought to start a blog. “ “Yeah, I’m thinking about other things I might do. But I gotta tell you, an independent blog is sort of scary to an old fart like me. Like stepping off a dock without knowing how deep the water is.” “Maybe so, Cope, but ol’ Badge’s right. Y’r way too mouthy t’ keep all that poop bubblin’ ‘round in y’r noggin t’ y’rself. “ “You know, the hardest part of this is losing that connection I’ve had with my readers. I have no idea how many people that amounts to, but even if it’s just one or two folks out there, I’ve felt them. I’m not kidding. For 20 years I’ve felt their presence on the other end of this... what do I call it?... this communion I’ve had with them. I’ve felt their frustration and isolation, their loneliness in what so often seems a hostile environment, and I’ve felt their support and appreciation... their relief, even... that somebody was saying what maybe they’d say, if only they had the stage like I’ve had. I know that sounds a little... a little...” “Full of yourself?” “Yeah. OK. Maybe sort of self-important, I admit. But it’s not my imagination, Bob. And I know a lot of what I’ve written over these 20 years has been comforting and sympathetic... maybe even intimate... to some number of people. And I’d like those people to know they’ve meant the same to me. However many there are... whoever they are... I think of them as friends and I’m sorry I have to say goodbye. And sad. Damn sad.” “So, Cope. Would a beer cheer ya’ up any? “And you’re buying, a**hole. You owe us weird, crazy, cranky ghost brothers that f***ing much.” “A beer? Sure. Sounds good, Red. And Bob, you bet. I’m buying. But listen... if we end up on bar stools, let’s keep the conversation to a minimum, OK fellas? We wouldn’t want anyone to think I was talking to myself, right?”

A HEALTHIER BOISE Terry Reilly health center opens in Central Bench neighborhood June 20
In August 2015, Central Bench neighbors offered suggestions for a newly proposed city park.
TWO NIGHTS, TWO MORE BIG PROPOSED CHANGES TO BOISE
In blink-and-you’ll-miss-them alterations to Boise’s landscape, two more changes surrounding two high-profile proposals will move to the forefront in the coming weeks: one involves the undeveloped eight-acre site where Franklin Elementary School once stood, and the other has to do with the heavily traveled Main Street/Fairview Avenue corridor, connecting the downtown core to the Boise Connector and points west. In 1905, the Boise Independent School District built Franklin Elementary on the corner of Franklin Road and Orchard Street. The school stood for more than a century before it was torn down in January 2010. The city of Boise desperately wanted the location for a new park and, in 2013, turned to Boise voters, asking them to approve a wide-reaching bond measure that would have included a $760,000 purchase of the land from the school district. The bond failed, but the school district came back to the city and offered to sell three of the 7.7 acres for $395,000 with an option to buy the remaining land for $1.24 million. The city attempted to find a non-profit partner to help fund the purchase of the remaining space, but none materialized. Instead, the school board put the remaining 4.7 acres up for auction. Maverik, Inc. was the top bidder, purchasing the land for approximately $1.3 million in January 2015. A few days later, the Central Bench Neighborhood Association wrote a letter to the city, saying it “was very disappointed to see that Maverik Inc. had purchased this property to develop yet another gas station/ convenience store.” Maverik officials began a charm offensive, launching a website promising its Franklin/Orchard project was “the best alternative” for the site because of the company’s “willingness to invest in the area and keep the neighborhood a great place to live and play.” In a letter to Maverik’s new neighbors, company Vice President of Real Estate Lance Dunkley said the 8 new store would be “a safe, attractive 6 | JUNE 1–7, 2016 | BOISEweekly
GEORGE PRENTICE Many can’t see the forest for the trees. And some construction workers can’t see the drywall for the building. So it shouldn’t have come as a big surprise when, one recent morning in May, a builder looked up from his work at a construction site on the Boise Bench and asked, “Can you tell me what this will be when we’re done building it?” Heidi Traylor, executive director of Terry Reilly Health Service, smiled and assured the builder she would explain the end result just as soon as she was done giving Boise Weekly a tour of what will be a new health center. Every time we meet with Traylor, it’s at a new TRHS site under construction. In November 2014, it was at what would be a new health care facility in Nampa. In July 2015, it was when she was helping break ground in Caldwell for Hope Plaza, a campus of health care, daycare and shelter for victims of domestic abuse. Our most recent visit with Traylor was at the corner of Cassia and Latah streets at what will become the newest TRHS medical facility, joining a dozen dental and behavioral health clinics across the Treasure Valley. While health care has become one of the most deconstructed, debated and politicized issues of the 21st century, the people at TRHS have little time to participate in that debate. They’re too busy serving tens of thousands of patients every year. Terry Reilly himself wouldn’t have had it any other way. A conscientious objector of the Vietnam War, Reilly and wife Rosie began a tutoring service in their Nampa home for children of Canyon County farmworkers. The Reillys soon noticed some of the children were suffering from severe ear infections. With the help of physicians, the Reillys began offering health care, and their living room clinic moved to a revamped Nampa grocery store. More clinics followed and the Terry Reilly legacy was in motion. In 1986, Reilly died in a plane crash while campaigning to become Idaho lieutenant governor. Not long after, in 1992, Traylor joined the Terry Reilly organization as an intern. Over the years, she served as a therapist, program director of SANE Solutions, administrator of Allumbaugh House and eventually the executive director of the organization in 2012. While Traylor inspected the progress of the newest TRHS clinic, she peered out the window to survey the neighborhood.
Terry Reilly Executive Director Heidi Traylor: “People here are doing their best to get by. That’s why we love this—truly, a neighborhood clinic.”
“We really like this neighborhood: a lot of hard-working young families but a good many seniors, too. There’s a good number of single heads of households, refugee families, you name it,” Traylor said. “It’s not an affluent part of town by any means. People here are doing their best to get by. That’s why we love this—truly, a neighborhood clinic.” Decision-makers at Boise City Hall couldn’t be more pleased. “We can’t say enough good things about Terry Reilly,” said Diana Lachiondo, director of Community Partnerships at the city of Boise. “They’re always stepping up on matters that are challenging, yet they always seem to find a way to make things work that add value to the community. The fact that this clinic addresses physical and behavioral health as well as dental in one clinic, that’s tremendous.” The new Boise Bench clinic will offer primary care, such as physical exams, prenatal and pediatric care, immunizations, health screenings and treatment of chronic diseases. Under the same roof will also be dental care, behavioral health services and overall case management. “People ask me all the time, ‘Why do you integrate those services so much instead of spreading them out to different clinics?’” said Traylor. “But we see examples every day that remind us that this is the way to go. Just yesterday, we saw a patient come into a Caldwell dental clinic for oral surgery, but her vital signs indicated elevated blood pressure and heart issues,” she said. Traylor also said a number of patients who come in for physical or dental care also disclose depression. “This way, we can have them talk to behavioral health just a few steps away. The alternative would be that those people might drift away or get lost
in the cracks,” she said. The location of the new health center lies close to two Boise neighborhoods: the Central Bench and Vista. City officials say the availability of community services, particularly health care, was identified as a prime need for the area. “It came out early, and it was loud and clear, that residents of that area said they needed better access to health services,” said Lachiondo. “It’s fair to say that it’s a neighborhood of challenges and opportunities. Yes, we have a lot of working families there, a fair amount of seniors, new Americans and even young professionals who work downtown. There just hasn’t been as much access to health services.” According to 2009-2013 U.S. Census five-year estimates, almost 28 percent of families living in the Bench area do not have health insurance and another 27 percent have public coverage such as Medicaid or Medicare. For those families with children under 18, the percentage living in poverty is as high as 28 percent; with children under 5 years of age, it reaches 40 percent. The new health center is not a free clinic. The TRHS economic model does provide low- to no-cost care on a sliding scale, but just as much care is billed to traditional insurance carriers. Unfortunately, the growing number of Idahoans who have secured coverage through Obamacare are learning the term “Affordable Care Act” may be a misnomer. In a March 2 investigation, we learned 37 percent of individual market plans offered on the Idaho health care exchange earlier this year had deductibles of $5,000 or higher, and out of pocket maximums were more than $10,000. “The Affordable Care Act has changed 8 quite a bit, some of it positive, some of it misleading,” said Traylor. “Yes, on paper B O ISE WE E KLY.C O M

place where residents can refresh and refuel on their way to and from 6 the park.” One outstanding issue remains, however. There is no park. So, gas station or not, city of Boise officials want to begin developing the city’s three acres. In August 2015, Central Bench residents were already attending workshops asking the question, “What kind of park do you want?” Neighbors suggested everything from a splash pad, to tennis courts to a community center. “What our outcome will be, we’re not exactly sure,” said Toby Norton, parks resource manager for Boise Parks and Recreation. “It’ll be fun to see what all is generated out of this.” Apparently the city is ready to present some of its early-stage conceptual designs for the park. The public is invited to give input on the conceptual designs at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 1, at the Library at Hillcrest, 5246 W. Overland Road. Meanwhile, the Ada County Highway District is also inviting the public to an open house where it will ask citizens to “shape your streets.” Specifically, ACHD is looking at the possible reconfiguration of travel lanes on Fairview Avenue and Main Street between Whitewater Park Boulevard and 16th Street in what it calls the Fairview/Main Project. The proposal, if implemented, could reduce the number of vehicle lanes, shore up bicycle lanes on both roads and possibly add more on-street parking. The ACHD open house for the Fairview/ Main Project begins at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 2, at the First Congregational United Church of Christ, 2201 Woodlawn Ave. For anyone unable to attend, ACHD promises to share details on achdidaho.org by Friday, June 3. —George Prentice 8 | JUNE 1–7, 2016 | BOISEweekly
Brace yourself Idaho. Here comes the heat. Again. While meteorologists have all kinds of gizmos and scientific models that point them to precise forecasts, it didn’t take Jay Breidenbach, meteorologist and senior hydrologist with the National Weather Service Office, to use a word not often heard in long-range forecasts: “Whooosh.” “We’ve had some nice weather lately, highs in the mid-70s. But when you add 15 to 20 degrees, it’s going to be… Whooosh… hot,” he said. “We’re forecasting temperatures hitting the 90s by Friday, June 3 and close to 100 by Sunday, June 5. That would smash the record for that date, 95 degrees.” Breidenbach had just emerged from the latest briefing at the NWS office in Boise when he told Boise Weekly, “It’s going to be a bit of a shock to the system.” Among the weather patterns that Breidenbach and his NWS colleagues are keeping a close eye on was a significant system of high pressure building over the region. “It’s much like what you might see in the middle of summer, perhaps in late June or sometime in July, but here we are at the beginning of June,” he said. Triple digits first settled in the Treasure Valley last year on June 26, bringing an unwelcome blast of furnace-like heat. Boise registered nine
consecutive days exceeding 100 degrees, peaking June 29, 2015 at what Breidenbach called an “astounding” 110 degrees. Offering some relief in this year’s immediate forecast, Breidenbach was quick to add that “heat waves come and go.” That said, Breidenbach said his latest forecast model indicates a better chance of warmer-than-normal days in the months ahead. “We’re coming out of an El Nino year in 2015,” said Breidenbach, referring to the periodic warming of the regions of the Pacific Ocean. “And while we’re seeing some of the temperatures in the Central Pacific beginning to cool off, the residual of that is pointing to warmer conditions over the Western U.S.” As for long-range forecasting—the predictions that extend far beyond the usual 10 or 15 days—Breidenbach said the NWS has to turn
to historic trends. Most of those signs also point to hotter summers ahead. “We’ve definitely seen warmer summers over the past decade,” he said. “And we don’t see any reason that would end.” While triple-digit temperatures may be a burden for Idaho’s recreation industry, perhaps the greatest fear is that record-setting heat will trigger yet another bad season for wildfires. In 2015, fire burned more than 712,000 acres in Idaho and firefighting costs hit $60 million. “That string of 100-degrees last June dried out our forests and rangeland. And when a lightning strike follows, it can contribute to a pretty bad fire season,” said Breidenbach. “Right now, our forests are nice and green. But whoosh, you have a heat wave like the one we’re about to have and things start drying out pretty fast.”
those people are insured, but then they see their deductibles. In fact they’re underin6 sured.” Perhaps the unseen silver lining of the Affordable Care Act is something called the Health Infrastructure Investment Program, which made the Boise Bench health center possible. “We were awarded $767,000 for the buildout of this location,” said Traylor, pointing to the construction of medical and dental exam rooms, counseling offices, behavioral health space all framing a central workspace where physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, psychiatric nurse practitioners, nursing staff and dental hygienists will work in what is called a Patient Centered Medical Home. “The layout design minimizes the number of steps for a patient,” said Traylor, adding that if all goes as planned, she’ll take the keys to the building in the first few days of June, hold an open
house for the community two weeks later and open for business on Monday, June 20. True to form, Traylor already has her sights set on her next project: a new mental health crisis center for Boise. Earlier this year, the Idaho Legislature earmarked enough funds to create two mental health crisis centers: one in Twin Falls and another in Boise. Centers have already been established in Idaho Falls and Coeur d’Alene. “That funding becomes official on July 1,” said Traylor. “And caring for a mental health crisis is something that Terry Reilly knows about.” The Allumbaugh House in Boise, which is run by TRHS, has been operating for six years, focusing on mental health and addiction issues for citizens without means. The facility opened its doors through a unique coalition the city of Boise, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, Ada County, the city of Meridian, Saint Alphonsus and St. Luke’s hospitals, the Boise City/Ada
County Housing Authority and the United Way of Treasure Valley. “We’re having those conversations right now,” said Lachiondo. “We still need to make some decisions on who will be the operators and where that new crisis center might be located. And yes, there is some potential at Allumbaugh House,” she said, adding that the City of Boise is serving as the fiscal agent for the process. She said Boise could see the new mental health crisis center as early as this December. “So, that might keep us busy in the coming six months,” said Traylor. “Right now, we’re just excited to get this Boise Bench health center completed.” Construction workers at the site could be forgiven for eavesdropping a bit, listening to Traylor detail exactly what they were working on. All of a sudden, it wasn’t about hammers, nails or drywall. They were building a place where people care.

“Tressa in San Francisco,” by Tomas Montano.
TOMAS MONTANO SOLO EXHIBITION
From politics to the weather, these are extreme times. It can be tough to know what or who to believe, and uncertainty and mistrust can throw people off their groove. That’s not the case with local artist (and former BW staffer) Tomas Montano. His work embraces extremes of color, material and subject matter but finds balance in the artist’s wealth of craftsmanship and talent. Montano’s new solo exhibition at Gallery Five18, everything needn’t always be something, is a case study in how riotous color and a graffiti-esque sense of line, run through a powerful sense of equilibrium can radiate equanimity and warmth. The works presented in everything emphasize Montano’s media mastery, with images, symbols and textures layered in such a way that each viewing can reveal a new element or idea—you may find you can’t live without a little something hanging in your home.

This year’s event will step off one hour earlier than past events, so motorists take note: Kids will rule the road starting at 10 a.m. Saturday, June 4. Hundreds of volunteers will be handing out T-shirts, refreshments and an Olympic-style medal to participants. Parents, if you haven’t yet signed up your young ones (the race is open to kids ages 6 to 14), you can still register at saintalphonsus. org/capitol-classic. The fee is $25 and proceeds benefit children’s health programs at Saint Al’s. No child will be left out—all abilities are welcome and assistance is available for those unable to pay. 10 a.m., $25.

We had a midget onstage; he took his shirt off and people were stapling dollars to him. It gets chaotic. Punk rock Ed Sullivan Show.” There’s more to Franks and Deans than sensationalism, though. The band will often play four-hour sets and can spend months working on arrangements for different songs. According to Sampson and DeTie, their version of “Luck Be a Lady” proved especially hard to figure out. “They were working on that before I even came down,” Sampson said. “We tried everything—flamenco guitar, you name it. And Hoss actually locked himself in the music room and somehow connected Madness’s ‘Night Boat to Cairo,’ ‘Luck Be a Lady’ and ‘Ghost Town’ by The Specials.” The band’s repertoire keeps growing, too. “Originally, it was just Rat Pack songs,” Sampson said. “And then we started throwing Bobby Darin in there. Now, it’s just crooners in general—like, still within that ’40s to early-’60s music of Vegas. … We’re gonna have almost 60 songs in our arsenal.” Working on so many covers doesn’t leave the band’s members much time for writing original songs. DeTie doesn’t mind, though. “I still do a little bit of writing myself, but Franks is my main focus,” he said. Sampson felt the same way. “Basically, what we’re trying to do is take the old Great American Songbook and make it ‘listenable’ for the younger people,” he said. “And it’s fucking working.” BOISEweekly | JUNE 1–7, 2016 | 19

ALIVE AFTER FIVE: KALEO, JUNE 1
JJ Julius Son might have met two of his three bandmates as gradeschoolers in their hometown outside Reykjavik, but he sounds like he’s from Iceland by way of Arkansas. On “Way Down We Go,” Julius Son belts out a trudging blues march with vocals that leap from baritone growls to gravelly Southern-tinged wails to yelps that sound like they were learned in the holler. A listener would be hard pressed to peg an “Icelandic influence” to Kaleo’s amalgam of indie folk, rock and blues, but there is something buried in Kaleo’s sound that undeniably sets it apart from its American counterparts. It might be that the band, now based in Austin, creates something like a super-refined dose of everything audiences love about its stated influences but without the genres’ formulae. —Zach Hagadone With The Wind + The Wave, 5 p.m., FREE.

SAM BEAM AND JESCA HOOP, JUNE 5, EGYPTIAN THEATRE
Fans of indie folk/pop are likely already familiar with Sam Beam (of Iron & Wine) and Jesca Hoop, the latter whom LA Weekly lumped with Beam as successful “idiosyncratic solo artists,” who play in a space “somewhere close to folk, but often experimenting with rock, country, pop and even electronic music.” Beam and Hoop joined forces on Love Letter for Fire (Sub Pop, April 2016), and the results are a collaboration so ethereal and seamless, you’ll wonder why they hadn’t teamed up before. Describing the process of co-songwriting, Beam told LA Weekly, “I like the conversation element of it.” That might be putting it mildly. Beam can hold a wistful note truer and longer than anyone but Rufus Wainwright and Hoop’s crystalline delivery—carrying the merest hint of a country lilt—adds dimension and depth to everything it touches. Buoyed by a backing band that includes a rich complement of strings, their voices rise in a sonic wholeness approaching opera but with the intimacy of a hushed conversation around a low-burning campfire. —Zach Hagadone Doors at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m.; $30-$34.50.

HUMOR, THE HUMAN CONDITION AND HOUSEKEEPING
22 | JUNE 1–7, 2016 | BOISEweekly
“It was kind of disgraceful that the house there is pretty much gone except for the foundation,” she said. For the past 18 months, Worthington has been part of a team working to build an interpretive center on the site housing illuminations of the Footes’ achievements and legacies in Boise. It has gotten green lights from the Idaho Humanities Council, the Idaho State Historical Society and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Worthington and her partners in the project have set for themselves a $70,000 fundraising goal, of which they’ve already raised $47,000. The production of Fair Use and other historical-themed events, she hopes, will get them the rest of the way. While Arthur will be represented equally with his wife at the interpretive center, Worthington said she has a particular fondness for Mary. Since moving to Boise in 2004, Worthington has performed impersonations of famous American women to adult audiences through the Idaho Humanities Council. So far she has collected a roster of 13 historical figures, ranging from Foote to First Lady Martha Washington to Mrs. Santa Claus. She recalled an instance when a member of the public asked her if Martha Washington, the wife of President George Washington, was still alive. It’s egregious, she said, so many women who have affected the course of history are unknown or misunderstood. “My goal is to help people realize the importance of women in Fair Use, which will receive a history. There are so many women who played such vital roles, and people know almost nothstaged reading at 7 p.m., Sating,” she said. urday, June 4 at the Boise State For her, Stegner’s appropriation of Foote’s University Danny Peterson Theater, work is also egregious, but has another moFoote’s contribution to littive: some of the play’s FAIR USE erature and American history proceeds will support an effort Saturday, June 4; 7 p.m.; $15.

Singersongwriter David Bazan (Pedro the Lion) has often waxed on faith, existential angst and other massive conceptual themes. No matter how dense the subject matter, however, Bazan has always had a knack for building a synth/ bedroom pop-esque tune, layering little notes and big melodies in surprising ways that beg repeated listens—this is especially true of his hot-off-the-press release Blanco (Barsuk, May 2016). Opening for Bazan will be sweet-voiced songster Laura Gibson, the inspiration for NPR’s incredibly popular Tiny Desk Concert series. Gibson also has a hot new release, Empire Builder (Barsuk/City Slang, April 2016), which is rife with her dreamy vocals and reflections on loss and redemption.

Wallace Stegner’s novel, Angle of Repose (Doubleday), was published in 1971. The next year, it won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. It has since been lauded as one of the finest, most influential works of literature about the American West, but it has also been dogged by controversy. As much as 10 percent of it was lifted directly from the letters and journals of early Boise resident Mary Hallock Foote, and the now-famous literary theft is now the subject of an play soon to be performed in Boise. “What I try to lay out in the play is a kind of trial. ... There’s a legal versus ethical discussion,” said Sands Hall, author of the play Fair Use. In 1876, Mary Hallock Foote and her husband, Arthur, moved West from the East Coast, spending time in towns like Leadville, Colo.; Grass Valley, Calif.; and, from 1884-95, in Boise River, Idaho. Arthur was a mining engineer later credited with developing a plan to irrigate the Boise Valley. Mary was a noted illustrator and author of popular reports on the experience of being a woman in the Wild West. Hall said Stegner would have likely been ignorant of the increased interest scholars and the public began to have in pioneer women’s writings, which earlier in the 20th century would have been all but forgotten. In an ironic twist, Foote’s Reminiscences of a Victorian Gentlewoman in the Far West—Stegner’s source material—was published the same year as Angle of Repose. The controversy has been an enduring part of the conversation surrounding Stegner’s most famous novel. Fair Use, which was first performed in Boise by New Heritage Theatre in 2004, attempts to make sense of that controversy. The dramatis personae in the play include, among others, MHF, WS, Playwright, Historian and Actors (all listed as such). In Fair Use, Playwright pens a stage play exploring an identical act of literary theft in which the victim and perpetrator are able to speak with one another. Playwright is a staunch defender of Foote while Historian tries to salvage Stegner. At the core of Fair Use is the act of theft. During his life, Stegner was regarded as one of America’s foremost literary figures. He founded

‘Popular speech doesn’t need to be protected’ GEORGE PRENTICE
Always The First Friday & Saturday After Memorial Day BOISE GREEK FESTIVAL.COM
A defunct Idaho state law barred Gem State cinemas from serving alcohol during R-rated film screenings, now one theater is suing for lost revenue.
The story had it all: sex, alcohol, pop culture, politics. So when the state of Idaho was slapped with a lawsuit over the tight leash it held on alcohol consumption at R-rated movies, media pounced. The Idaho Legislature did, too, quickly crafting new legislation to address the issue. In the wake of the Meridian Cinemas dba Village Cinema vs. Idaho State Police lawsuit and Idaho House Bill 544 becoming law, it’s important to note two things: No. 1, the lawsuit is far from over and, No. 2, the underlying—and more important—debate at hand involves government overreach doing irreparable harm to a private business and protections of free speech guaranteed under the United States Constitution. “The case involves the application of very broad and fundamental principles to rather discreet and salacious circumstances. So yes, that seems to always generate interest,” said attorney Preston Carter, of Boise-based Givens Pursley LLP. He represents the Village Cinema owners, who were contacted by ISP Alcohol Beverage Control officers warning them about serving adult beverages at certain R-rated films. “As a result, our clients started… well, let’s say self-censorship. That’s the right phrase. It’s a strong phrase, but it’s the right phrase,” Carter said. But the warnings kept coming. In a February 2015 sting operation, two undercover ABC detectives ordered a Bacardi and Diet Coke and a Blue Moon beer and, while watching an evening screening of Fifty Shades of Grey, took copious notes detailing each simulated sex act and chronicling how long each one lasted: B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
“In this scene, the male and female both removed all their clothing and were completely naked. The scene lasted three minutes,” the notes read. “The male lifted the female’s skirt up onto her back and pulled her panties down below her buttocks. The male slapped the female’s bare buttocks multiple times and appeared sexually stimulated by his conduct.” That scene was approximately one minute long. “With the female on her back, the male placed an ice cube in his mouth and began to touch and/or caress the female’s body, including her bare breasts. The scene lasted two and a half minutes.” Critical consensus of Fifty Shades of Grey held the film was a dud. The New York Times called it “terrible” and the Guardian described it as filled with “daytime soap performances.” “There’s a good saying: ‘Popular speech doesn’t need to be protected,’” said Carter. “Notice that they didn’t come after Village Cinema for showing 12 Years a Slave.” Carter was referring to the 2013 Oscar winner that earned an R rating for extreme depictions of rape and sexual cruelty but told the true story of a free black man sold into slavery. “That film wasn’t tested. It was popular. It won the Best Picture Oscar,” said Carter. “But the First Amendment doesn’t make a distinction. Those sorts of controversial, uncomfortable subjects have to be allowed.” As written, Idaho Code 23-614 shackled beer, wine and liquor licenses at select Idaho cinemas to specific words prohibiting films showing “acts
or simulated acts of sexual intercourse” and “any person being touched, caressed or fondled on the breast, buttocks, anus or genitals.” Captain Russ Wheatley, the man in charge of ISP’s ABC unit, says in retrospect, the old law overreached. “The new legislation passed by the Idaho Legislature earlier this year removed the ‘prohibited acts’ section because there were some concerns that it was a little over-broad,” Wheatley said. “What that means for a movie theater now is that we want to make sure we’re protecting constitutional rights here.” Wheatley added the revised legislation still ties liquor licenses to Idaho’s obscenity laws, “which already existed,” but when asked if the lawsuit was over and done with, he said, “I’m not going to talk about that particular point because I can’t.” Carter confirmed the lawsuit is still pending, and the case is “still at its absolutely earliest stage.” It turns out Village Cinema’s liquor license is secure, but theater operators say they suffered significant economic damage due to the previous threats from ABC and self-censorship. “That includes lost revenues caused by [ABC’s] conduct, not showing some movies, shifting movies into smaller theaters, having fewer screenings, the expense of pre-screening films and, of course, the lost sale of alcohol,” said Carter, adding his client also expected to recover attorney’s fees from the state of Idaho. “We’re in discussions right now. I can tell you that there is a temporary stay right now, but that expires on July 1.” In other words, while there may not be a sequel, this particular show is far from over.

CITIZEN TYNE RAFAELI
Audiences will love wunderkind director’s Idaho Shakespeare Festival debut GEORGE PRENTICE
It is rare to sense you’re in the presence of greatness, but that’s the sensation when meeting Tyne Rafaeli, who makes her Idaho Shakespeare Festival directing debut with Love’s Labor’s Lost, which opens Saturday, June 4. Though still in her early 30s, Rafaeli’s reputation precedes her. She’s a competitive gymnast who trained in Moscow, Russia; she’s a classically trained actress; and has collaborated six times with director extraordinaire Bartlett Sher—including on recent critically acclaimed Broadway revivals of The King and I and Fiddler on the Roof, both of which are still playing to sold-out audiences in New York. How did the Idaho Shakespeare Festival come onto your radar? Bart Sher has become the most important mentor of my career, and the Idaho Shakespeare Festival formed so much of who he is as an artist. Bart introduced me to [ISF Creative Director] Charlie Fee and we started talking about some ideas. Two years later, here I am. Once you decided on Love’s Labor’s Lost, how soon thereafter do you choose the setting or time frame of your production. I’m a bit of a private detective. I extract certain visual, rhythmic or aesthetic ideas from the play. I present those hunches to my designers. For example, I had a hunch that we needed to be in contact with nature; we also know that the people we meet share a dense language and live in a community in transition. All that said, what will we see on stage? We stole a little from Botticelli, a little from Wes Anderson and a little from Pina Bausch. You mentioned the word “dense.” Indeed, this may well be Shakespeare’s densest play. It has the longest scene, the longest speech and the longest word. So, let’s talk about that word. Honorificabilitudinitatibus. It’s interesting to note that it’s spoken by a street-smart groundskeeper, among the lowest on the social scale 24 | JUNE 1–7, 2016 | BOISEweekly
in this story. I think that’s quite intentional by Shakespeare. I would be remiss if I didn’t ask about the last two years of your professional life. You’re the associate director—along with Bart Sher—of two Broadway shows that wowed critics and audiences. First, there was a lavish new production of the King and I at Lincoln Center, starring Ken Watanabe, and then a provocative revival of Fiddler on the Roof, which is up for a few Tony Awards in the coming days. They’re both still running in New York, and we’ll be bringing the King and I to London’s West End later this year. Regarding Fiddler on the Roof, your production made a rather interesting choice to frame the show in the 21st century, with reference to the current global refugee crisis. Talk to me about making that choice. We’ve been experiencing the most terrible refugee crisis since World War II, and we’re doing Fiddler on the Roof. How could we not make that choice? We thought it was a political and moral obligation. I need to ask about another musical that’s on your professional horizon. Tell me about the new show you’ll be directing, entitled Chasing Rainbows. I think it’s going to be pretty epic. It’s the story of the early career of Judy Garland, leading up to her performance in the Wizard of Oz. My guess is we’ll be crying before the evening is through. Do you have access to the original music from the Judy Garland songbook? We do. We’ll open the show at the Goodspeed Theatre in Connecticut this September. Can I assume it’s heading for Broadway? We’re concentrating on making it as a beautiful a production as we can. If it has a life after that, it would be a blessing, but we don’t think about that too far in advance, do we?

WINESIPPER SAVOR SOUTHERN RHONE REDS
I like Syrah but, for the most part, I prefer when it’s blended with a healthy dose of Grenache. That (along with a few other grapes) is what you get with a southern Rhone red. Grenache makes a fruit forward, softer style wine while Syrah brings a little muscle and depth to the blend. Together they make a great late-spring, early-summer barbecue red. 2014 CHATEAU DE SEGRIES COTES DU RHONE, $15 In this blend, Grenache leads off (50 percent), followed by Syrah (30 percent), and equal parts Cinsault and Carignan. The floral aromas are marked by dusty rose, spicy raspberry and ripe cranberry. It opens with beautiful red fruit flavors, balanced by a core of ripe tannins and soft acidity. Finishes with creamy blackberry and pepper. 2013 DOMAINE D’ANDEZON COTE-DURHONE, $16 Syrah (backed by Grenache) dominates this wine made by a cooperative in a small town near Avignon. The nose is a mix of cherry, raspberry and blueberry with touches of spice and sweet balsamic. The bright cherry and creamy blueberry on the palate is backed by earthy oak and black pepper. Soft tannins come through on the long finish. 2014 MORGAN COTES DU CROW’S, $17 This ringer from Monterey, Calif., a blend of 53 percent Grenache and 47 percent Syrah, made the cut. The complex array of aromas are a mix of strawberry, buttery oak, pepper and soft cherry with a kiss of chocolate. The California terroir is unmistakable in this fruit forward, user friendly wine. You get ripe cherry and berry fruit flavors, a silky texture and a food friendly hit of acidity on the finish. —David Kirkpatrick B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY BY ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): The voices in our heads are our constant companions. They fill our inner sanctuary with streams of manic commentary. Often we’re not fully cognizant of the bedlam, since the outer world dominates our focus. But as soon as we close our eyes and turn our attention inward, we’re immersed in the jabbering babble. That’s the bad news, Aries. Now here’s the good news. In the coming weeks you will have far more power than usual to ignore, dodge, or even tamp down the jabbering babble. As a result, you may get a chance to spend unprecedented amounts of quality time with the still, small voice at your core—the wise guide that is often drowned out by all the noise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): We are inclined to believe that the best way to see the whole picture or the complete story is from above. The eagle that soars overhead can survey a vast terrain in one long gaze. The mountaintop perspective affords a sweeping look at a vast landscape. But sometimes this perspective isn’t perfectly useful. What we most need to see may be right next to us, or nearby, and it’s only visible if our vision is narrowly focused. Here’s how poet Charles Bernstein expresses it: “What’s missing from the bird’s eye view is plain to see on the ground.” Use this clue in the coming weeks.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I foresee fertile chaos in your immediate future, Gemini. I predict lucky accidents and smoldering lucidity and disciplined spontaneity. Do you catch the spirit of what I’m suggesting? Your experiences will not be describable by tidy theories. Your intentions will not fit into neat categories. You will be a vivid embodiment of sweet paradoxes and crazy wisdom and confusing clarity. Simple souls may try to tone you down, but I hope you will evade their pressure as you explore the elegant contradictions you encounter. Love your life exactly as it is! Methodical improvisations will be your specialty. Giving gifts that are both selfish and unselfish will be one of your best tricks. “Healing extremes” will be your code phrase of power.
being willingly lost in a wild, idyllic, relaxing setting.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): According to many sources on the Internet, werifesteria is an obscure word from Old English. But my research suggests it was in fact dreamed up within the last few years by a playful hoaxster. Regardless of its origins, I think it’s an apt prescription to fix what’s bugging you. Here’s the definition: “to wander longingly through the forest in search of mystery and adventure.” If you are not currently seeking out at least a metaphorical version of that state, I think you should be. Now is an excellent time to reap the catalytic benefits of
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Between now and July 25, there’s a chance you will reach the peak of a seemingly unclimbable mountain. You could win a privilege that neither you nor anyone else ever dreamed was within your reach. It’s possible you’ll achieve a milestone you’ve been secretly preparing for since childhood. Think I’m exaggerating, Virgo? I’m not. You could break a record for the biggest or best or fastest, or you might finally sneak past an obstacle that has cast a shadow over your self-image for years. And even if none of these exact events comes to pass, the

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I’m debating about which of your astrological houses will be your featured hotspot in the coming days. I’m guessing it will come down to two options: your House of Valid Greed and your House of Obligatory Sharing. The House of Valid Greed has a good chance to predominate, with its lush feasts and its expansive moods. But the House of Obligatory Sharing has an austere beauty that makes it a strong possibility, as well. Now here’s the trick ending, Leo: I’d like to see if you can emphasize both houses equally; I hope you’ll try to inhabit them both at the same time. Together they will grant you a power that neither could bestow alone.
odds are excellent that you will accomplish another unlikely or monumental feat. Congratulations in advance! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “My mother gave birth to me once, yeah yeah yeah,” writes author Sara Levine. “But I’ve redone myself a million times.” I’m sure she is not demeaning her mom’s hard work, but rather celebrating her own. When’s the last time you gave birth to a fresh version of yourself? From where I stand, it looks like the next 12 to 15 months will be one of those fertile phases of reinvention. And right now is an excellent time to get a lightning-flash glimpse of what the New You might look like. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Author Rebecca Solnit offers some tough advice that I think you could use. “Pain serves a purpose,” she says. “Without it you are in danger. What you cannot feel you cannot take care of.” With that in mind, Scorpio, I urge you to take full advantage of the suffering you’re experiencing. Treat it as a gift that will motivate you to transform the situation that’s causing you to hurt. Honor it as a blessing you can use to rise above the mediocre or abusive circumstances you have been tolerating. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Aphorist James Guida contemplates the good results that can
come from not imposing expectations on the raw reality that’s on its way. “Not to count chickens before they’re hatched,” he muses, “or eggs before they’re laid, chickens who might possibly lay eggs, birds who from afar might be confused with chickens.” I recommend this strategy for you in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. Experiment with the pleasure of being wide open to surprises. Cultivate a mood of welcoming one-of-a-kind people, things, and events. Be so empty you have ample room to accommodate an influx of new dispensations. As James Guida concludes: “Not to count or think of chickens.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “No gift is ever exactly right for me,” mourns Capricorn poet James Richardson. Don’t you dare be like him in the coming days. Do whatever you must to ensure that you receive at least one gift that’s exactly right for you. Two gifts would be better; three sublime. Here’s another thought from Richardson: “Success repeats itself until it is a failure.” Don’t you dare illustrate that theory. Either instigate changes in the way you’ve been achieving success, or else initiate an entirely new way. Here’s one more tip from Richardson: “Those who demand consideration for their sacrifices were making investments, not sacrifices.” Don’t you dare be guilty of that sin. Make
sacrifices, not investments. If you do, your sacrifices will ultimately turn out to be good investments. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Life will invite you to explore the archetype of the Ethical Interloper in the coming days. The archetype of the Helpful Transgressor may tempt you, as well, and even the Congenial Meddler or the Compassionate Trickster might look appealing. I urge you to consider experimenting with all of these. It will probably be both fun and productive to break taboos in friendly ways. You could reconnoiter forbidden areas without freaking anyone out or causing a troublesome ruckus. If you’re sufficiently polite and kind in expressing your subversive intentions, you might leave a trail of good deeds in your wake. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your theme comes from the title of a poem by Fortesa Latifi: “I Am Still Learning How to Do the Easy Things.” During the next phase of your astrological cycle, I invite you to specialize in this study. You may imagine that you are already a master of the simple, obvious arts of life, but here’s the news: Few of us are. And the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to refine your practice. Here’s a good place to start: Eat when you’re hungry, sleep when you’re tired, and give love when you’re lonely.

Advice for those on the verge DEAR MINERVA,
Do you feel like interracial couples (gay or straight) are treated differently than others? Thanks, —Ebony and Ivory
DEAR EBONY AND IVORY,
Alas, in 2016, we still have hang-ups about race, but I think it is improving. I still see angry, hateful comments on the use of interracial couples in advertising and people seem to still find it tiringly necessary to point out differences in race in relationships that don’t look like their own. I think that some people have a hard time accepting the fact people from two different racial experiences and backgrounds can find love with one another. I find that to be a completely ridiculous assumption and I don’t care who knows it. Coming from a background where people were very vocal about viewing any white person who was involved with another race as not being “good enough” to find a white person to be with, I have little tolerance for such ignorance and absurdity. Racism still exists and therefore there are still struggles for interracial couples. When you break down the myth surrounding race, you really see that we are all part of humanity. We have a long way to go but I think our generations coming up have a refreshingly different view on the world. Love has no boundaries but those that we put on it in our own flawed minds. My advice is when you see the bigotry, shut it down. Finding love is hard. Why must we make it harder?

Experiment kits are usually designed to appeal to kids, so a fullgrown person might feel silly buying one in a toy store. With a new app from Google, anyone with an Android device can nerd out in privacy. Developed as part of Google’s Making and Science initiative, Google Science Journal, turns a mobile smartphone into a mobile lab, and using the phone’s existing sensors, the app lets users “organize ideas into projects, make predictions, take notes and collect data in multiple trials, then annotate and explore results.” Google partnered with Exploratorium, the San Francisco-based “museum of science, art and human perception” to offer a slew of relatively inexpensive external kits filled with sensors, controllers and craft supplies. Grab a kit—or just use items found around FREE, play.google.com the house—and connect an Arduino component (Arduino is an “open-source electronic prototyping platform for creating interactive electronic objects”) to the phone and an addiction to “Angry Birds” may give way to hypothesizing and logging computations on the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.
