EDITOR’S NOTE DRINKERS, PARTIERS AND WINNERS In the days leading up to the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787, a group of 55 Founding Fathers huddled at a downtown Philadelphia tavern. There, they got unutterably smashed. According to the booze tab from that evening, they consumed 54 bottles of Madeira, 60 bottles of claret, eight bottles of whiskey, 22 bottles of porter, eight bottles of hard cider, 12 bottles of beer and seven bowls (actually tubs) of alcoholic punch. Now, it seems Americans have lost the ability to hold their liquor. As we prepare to celebrate the 240th anniversary of the U.S. Declaration of Independence on July 4, at least some Idahoans will be doing so without as ready access to liquid exuberance. After years of mounting incidents, McCall is 86-ing Fourth of July drinkers from public spaces around the resort community. While officials say it’s a matter of public safety, not everyone is pleased. Read more about this year’s dry Fourth of July on Page 6. Speaking of celebrations, Boise Weekly thanks the vendors, volunteers and visitors who packed the corner of Sixth and Broad streets on June 25 for The Big LeBoise, our 25th birthday party. Everyone who showed up to eat, drink and be merry with us was a winner, but some won more than others. One highlight of our party was announcing the winners of this year’s Passport to Patios drawing: those who visited a slate of local bars and restaurants with great patios had their passports stamped, returned them to BW and were entered to win some awesome prizes. The winners include Stephanie Bailey-White, who floated home with a three-person inflatable kayak; Karen Montoore, who will be getting away with a getaway package to Cactus Pete’s in Jackpot, Nev.; Robert White, who gets into Stanley Sawtooth Mountain Musicfest gratis; David Ferguson, who scored a $250 gift certificate to Lonecone.com; Jack Floyd, who’s headed to the 2016 Idaho Horror Film Festival with two VIP passes and some cool swag; and Tyler Bush, who now has reservations and a $100 bar tab for himself and up to 30 friends at Boise Brewing. Bonus: We also raised a goodly chunk of change for the Women’s and Children’s Alliance. We’ll count that as another win. —Zach Hagadone

MAIL LOVE OVER VIOLENCE
What should we do when brutal violence happens in our communities? When something terrible happens, many of us turn away. This is a natural response to painful truths. But it will not help us change things for the better. No, to make change, we cannot turn away. We must turn towards the recent acts of violence in Idaho and see the connections—high-school football players racially abusing and raping their teammate with a disability, three football players sexually assaulting a young woman, four men targeting and killing a gay man and a young man committing a domestic violence-related homicide. These are not unrelated acts, but are connected by a truth that our society encourages us to take power from others based our gender, race, ability and sexual orientation. We need to look inward, to see who we are—a society that promotes hyper-masculinity and aggression; communities where power over others is used to oppress. We have a shared responsibility to ask what we must do differently to end domination and violence. We cannot keep girls and women and people who are gender oppressed silenced and afraid. We cannot risk the emotional and physical safety of our children in schools and college campuses and in our communities. We can do better. We must do better. This is not an invitation. This is not a plea. This is a simple statement of fact. We need to shine a light on hope and the possibility for change. We need to see our profound interconnectedness to one another as human beings, our own and each other’s humanity. We need to
listen—deeply listen—to girls and women and people who are gender oppressed, people of color, and people with disabilities about the truth connected to their histories and lived experiences. We need to engage in conversations—with your family, neighbors, colleagues and community—about the worth of every human being, why everyone should be valued and accepted for their authentic selves, and how differences should be celebrated. We need parents and schools to teach our children, from preschool through college, about anti-bias on gender, race and other identities, and that raises consciousness to make schools more just, equitable and safe. We need to re-imagine communities with social equity and collective liberation, where everyone has what they need and power is shared. We need to embrace our shared responsibility to interrupt harm and turn toward those most in need. We need to see our growing interdependence as an opportunity for cooperation, regeneration and sustainability. Whole people and whole communities are possible with love over violence. These are the stories we must tell; these are the stories we must live. We need to come together and inspire real change that gives us hope. Together, we can build our future now. —Kelly Miller, executive director, Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence

in a generation without relying on community fund drives, etc.? History (now of minimal importance in Idaho universities) might aid understanding. In 1982, TEFRA [Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act] was signed into law, attempting to balance the federal budget. That act substantially changed Medicare by allowing hospitals great leverage controlling (and redistributing to themselves) some physician incomes. These changes first applied to income for procedures’ billing, especially for those performed in hospitals or in their other owned facilities. This greatly increased hospital revenues. Surges followed in hospitals buying physician practices and leading to greatly increased incomes for these entities still deemed “nonprofit,” allowing them to morph into “medical centers.” To retain their “nonprofit” status, other expenses such as real estate acquisition for “growing service needs,” medical practice purchases, etc., were needed to balance their nonprofit bottom lines. Hospital administrations once led by active-informed/ retired religious and lay leaders then became aviaries of high degreed (and very well paid) administrators concerned with market share, control and (hopefully) quality. Corporate medicine and medical insurance corporations had arrived. Thereafter, local political and legal battles followed over their further controlling physician practices and their private property encroachment. For further health care politics and economics reading, the Harper’s July 2015 issue is recommended. More recent studies published in JAMA and elsewhere show health care costs to not be reduced nor health care insurance premium increases limited by America’s arrival of corporate medicine— especially in our smaller cities. Idaho should take note. —Frederick W. Bauer, MD Boise BOISEweekly | JUNE 29 – JULY 5, 2016 | 5

capacity of 750 people and an alcohol ban on the beach. A first-time offender will be cited and a second-time offender will be arrested and charged with trespassing, said Smith. Tom Grote, publisher and editor of the McCall Star-News, recalls July 4, 2015 well. “My family and I walked through Legacy Park, the big park in the middle of town where you can watch the fireworks, and the park was full of young adults having a great time: Hacky Sack, a
Idaho advocates for women’s reproductive rights cheered the U.S. Supreme Court ruling June 27 that struck down abortion clinic restrictions in Texas. The 5-3 decision was considered by many to be the high court’s most sweeping statement on reproductive rights in 25 years. In the Gem State, however, abortion rights advocates still have their guard up. “This should be a loud and clear message to some of the Idaho Legislature’s most conservative lawmakers who use abortion access as one of their top issues,” said Hannah Brass Greer, Idaho legislative director for Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest. “Whether they’ll listen or not is another thing.” Soon after the Supreme Court ruling, constitutional scholars said similar restrictions in other states “are most likely unconstitutional, and it imperils many other kinds of restrictions on abortion,” according to The New York Times. When the Idaho Legislature is in session, Greer spends most of her days pushing back against legislation opposing abortion. Earlier this year, two abortion measures were passed by the Legislature. One bans the practice of harvesting tissue from aborted fetuses—no such thing occurs in Idaho anyway. The second measure requires the state to maintain a list of free ultrasound providers, many of whom are backed by anti-abortion groups. Both will go into effect Friday, July 1. A third bill, dubbed the “Idaho Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act,” which would have banned many second trimester abortions, failed when it ran into a constitutional challenge. “Yes, we saw challenges last year and this at the Idaho Statehouse and we were able to beat many of them back,” said Greer. “We didn’t have a message from the Supreme Court at the time. Now we do, so that only strengthens our argument. Lawmakers should absolutely take note.”
McCall city officials would like to see more flags and fireworks this Fourth of July and fewer boobs and booze. After years of what they say was rowdy drunken behavior, with North Beach crowds swelling to as many as 2,000 revelers, the city, Valley County and the state of Idaho will clamp down on public consumption of alcohol and restricting the popular beach to a lot less partying. “We heard from too many McCall residents who said, ‘We don’t want to walk downtown, so we’re going to leave.’ We live in a beautiful, wonderful place where too many people wanted to leave because they didn’t feel safe,” said Erin Greaves, city of McCall communications manager. “We needed to protect the health and safety of our community.” To do that, McCall will ban public consumption of alcohol in or around Payette Lake’s shorelines—the only place to drink will be at a city-sponsored beer garden in McCall’s Depot Park about two blocks from the beach, or in one of the town’s restaurants or pubs. “We want you to come to McCall, but we want you to honor McCall,” said Greaves. “We want you to know that the Fourth of July is so much more than what it was in the past.” What it was in the past was a “powder keg waiting to happen,” according to Lieutenant Dan Smith, a 19-year veteran of the Valley County Sheriff’s Office. In particular, Smith pointed to North Beach, where booze-soaked revelry had gotten out of hand. “In 2008, we had partiers actually throwing beer bottles at sheriff’s deputies out on patrol boats,” said Smith. “Over the years, we had several sexual contact [issues] with guys groping girls, and we even had a rape in the woods. We saw vehicle burglaries and major medical situations where people ended up in the hospital with alcohol poisoning.” Smith said it came to a head in 2015 when McCall was packed with tipsy, scantily-clad teenagers. “Businesses told us they were losing money because the locals wouldn’t come into town to buy anything; and some of those business owners said they would start shutting down on the Fourth of July unless something changed,” said Smith. The new rules will include a parking ban on the roads leading to North Beach, a maximum
lot of beer and, yes, a lot of girls in bikinis. That’s what they wear in the summer, you know. And the young people were using some language that your mom and dad might not use,” said Grote. “No one bothered us, but we decided that’s not where we wanted to watch the fireworks,” he added. “We walked a little further down to Brown Park and sat down with a lot people just like us. We opened up a bottle of wine and had a wonderful evening. Everybody had their place. This year, I can’t do that.” That, Grote says, is the tipping point of
McCall’s dramatic shift away from alcohol this Fourth of July holiday. “That’s the debate: Whose rights are you infringing upon by doing this? Are you enhancing the right for citizens to have peace and tranquility in their town by banning alcohol? Or are you infringing on the rights of law-abiding citizens who had an equal right to a good time in their own way?” As for the city of McCall and law enforcement insisting some local businesses were threatening to close if something didn’t change, Grote said he has heard nothing of the sort. “That was anecdotal,” he said. “I didn’t hear that from anyone. Are those businesses saying they were overwhelmed by the wrong kind of people? Isn’t the money the same from a 25-year-old versus a 65-year-old?” Greaves, however, said the city of McCall did hear from more than 20 business owners who wanted some kind of change. The businesses were then invited to meet with local, county and state officials to craft what she called a “community response.” “It’s going to be so much better. We’re calling it the ‘Lakeside Liberty Fest,’” said Greaves. “It will be right in the middle of the main park on the shores of Payette Lake [with] face painting, a bouncy house, water slides, a shade tent and booths from more than 30 nonprofits and local businesses [as well as] plenty of live music and, of course, the best fireworks show in the state reflecting over Payette Lake. We’re creating a brand new Fourth of July for McCall.” Greaves said the city has begun a fullbore media blitz to let visitors—particularly those from the Treasure Valley—know about the changes, but Grote thinks most people heading to McCall for the holiday won’t have any clue. “Yes, the city may buy ads in your paper and mine but I think, by and large, a lot of people are going to think it’s business as usual and that’s where the conflict will come,” Grote said. “They’re going to head to the beach, crack open a beer and someone is going to tap them on the shoulder and say, ‘You can’t do that.’” To enforce the new rules, the city has created a team of 15 “ambassadors” who will be assigned to spot trouble over the Fourth of July weekend. 7 “Simple, wholesome, good-time, smalltown fun; that’s what we’re going to be B O ISE WE E KLY.C O M

Skinny Dipper Hot Springs is officially off limits.
THE SKINNY ON SKINNY DIPPER
GRE TA GARDNER As Idaho approaches the fourth anniversary of a ban on texting while driving July 1, AAA Idaho said it wants to accelerate the conversation about going “hands-free.” “We’ve discovered that distracted driving has grown as a whole,” said Dave Carlson, AAA Idaho director of Public and Government Affairs. Carlson’s organization tried earlier this year to push a measure through the Idaho Legislature proposing an outright ban of manual use of cellphones while driving. “It’s a matter of deep concern,” AAA Idaho lobbyist Michael Kane told the Idaho Senate Transportation Committee in February. “It’s time to get the conversation going.” Carlson said lawmakers’ enthusiasm for such legislation was quashed by Committee Chairman Sen. Bert Brackett (R- Rogerson). “He told me, ‘My committee has problems with this bill,’” said Carlson. Another member of the committee, Sen. Steve Vick (R-Dalton Gardens), told fellow lawmakers he “probably would not support” such a measure, adding he thought the bill was introduced too late in the session. “I just think that it would be better … not get into the habit of allowing late introduction of so many bills,” Vick said. Since the bill was enacted in 2012, the percentage of accidents triggered by the use of electronic devices increased from 24 percent in its first year to 27 percent in its second year, according to Hands Free Idaho. “We still have a significant problem with dis-

tracted driving in Idaho,” said Teresa Baker, Idaho State Police public information officer. “The majority still revolves around mobile phones: texting, searching the web or using GPS.” In Idaho, being cited for inattentive driving is a misdemeanor and carries fines up to $300 and the possibility of a jail sentence. Separately, the fine for breaking Idaho’s texting-while-driving law is $85 and no jail time. The law defines “texting” as “engaging in the review of, or manual preparation transmission of, written communications via handheld wireless devices.” “We think it has made a difference in technical terms in that people know it’s illegal to text and drive,” Baker said. “But the way it can be enforced, we don’t see a lot of tickets written under that section of the code. The way the law is written by prohibiting written communications, it’s difficult to prove those sorts of things. It’s a matter of an officer’s word against the driver’s word.” Idaho Transportation Department reports an ever-growing concern with distracted driving as motorists manipulate music files and navigation apps on their smartphones. “In some cases, hands-free devices can be even more dangerous,” said Carlson. “It’s categorized as ‘cognitive distraction.’ Your brain is engaged even when you look away from devices.” The Idaho resort communities of Ketchum
about,” Greaves told the volunteers, according to the Star-News. “It’s not to keep people away. It’s to bring the right customers in.” 6 Grote said he’s skeptical about the specter of “untrained volunteers observing criminal activity and reporting to law enforcement,” and he even likens the tight restrictions at North Beach to the Cuban Missile Crisis. “They’re going to put buoys around the beach so that no boats will be able to come in there,” said Grote. “It reminds me of the Missile Crisis B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
and Sandpoint didn’t wait for a state law. Both cities have already enacted ordinances limiting drivers to hands-free cellphone use. Hailey and Bellevue officials recently announced they, too, are considering similar measures. But those ordinances vary from town to town. That can be confusing, according to AAA Idaho. “It’s a mixed bag with different rules, and the Legislature is not beholden,” Carlson said. Meanwhile, Idaho’s bordering states vary in hands-free legislation. Oregon, Washington, Nevada and Utah ban all hand-held devices, with hands-free attachments permissible for those over 18 years of age, except in Nevada. Drivers under 18 in Oregon, Washington and Utah are not allowed to use any devices while driving. Fines for texting and driving range from $750 in Utah to $250 in Nevada. In Wyoming, the law against texting and driving is similar to Idaho’s, with no explicit hands-free legislation. “For teenagers, six in 10 crashes are due to distracted driving,” Carlson said. “The problem is much greater than the general public probably believes. It’s difficult, but our thinking is: Let’s have a conversation about this and get at its core.” Carlson said until that conversation reaches critical mass, any chance for hands-free cellphone legislation at the Idaho Statehouse remains in neutral.
when we put submarines out, hoping that Russian cruisers would turn away. Remember that quarantine line? This is literally our quarantine line … this time around North Beach.” Anyone who thinks they can get a sip of the brew before Independence Day partying kicks into high gear should know McCall booze-on-the-beach restrictions stretch through the holiday weekend. “They’ll be in effect from Friday, July 1 through Tuesday, July 5,” said Greaves. “But this is a brand new way to celebrate.”
Since at least July 2004, Skinny Dipper Hot Springs near the Boise County community of Banks has been a problem for the Bureau of Land Management. According to Tate Fischer, who heads the BLM Four Rivers Field Office, the hot springs—illegally built in the early 1990s— have played host to hundreds of incidents. “Everywhere from assault, rape, underage consumption, drug use, you name it,” he said. Since 2008, 140 incidents have been reported—51 in the past two years. One fatality occurred when a visitor fell from a cliff face and, in 2012, a wildfire sparked at the site burned more than 6,000 acres and cost millions of dollars. The springs also present health risks in the form of human waste, needles, even diapers. “Any one of those chemicals or contaminants stick right there where people are soaking,” Fischer said. “Anything that trickles out is a point-source pollutant to the Payette River.” As popular as it is dangerous, Skinny Dipper will be closed for the next five years. BLM made the announcement June 21, stating the closure would be necessary to deconstruct the cement work and piping that created the artificial pooling and repair damage to surrounding vegetation. “In five years, it’s my intention and my hope that it looks like there was never a hot springs developed there,” Fischer said. The agency first made public plans to close Skinny Dipper in 2015, but the announcement triggered pushback from some users. Fischer said one group even petitioned for a stay of the action, but the request was denied. That cleared the way for the current move. “Our goal is always to make it accessible and usable by the most number of people for the most benefit,” said Erin Curtis, BLM deputy state director for communications. “Things like public health and safety and resource damage are a higher priority than recreation—unfortunately, but that’s the way it is.” Fischer said closure signs will be posted at the makeshift parking area along Highway 17, at trailheads and at the pools. Trespassers will be ticketed, but not forever. “It’s not our intent to keep people off their public lands,” he said. “We intend to open the area back up to dispersed, authorized recreation.” —Zach Hagadone BOISEweekly | JUNE 29 – JULY 5, 2016 | 7

Saturday and Sunday, join some of the top Hacky Sack jugglers in North America for the U.S. Open Freestyle Footbag Championships, going down at Boise State University’s Centennial Amphitheater. Hosted by the aptly named Boise Footclan, the two-day event will feature free Hacky Sack clinics and circle competitions. Check it out as a non-competitor for $15, register as an intermediate for $25, or go full bore in the open and women’s divisions for $40. Saturday: 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; Sunday: 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; $15-$40. Centennial Amphitheater, Boise State University, footbag.org. 8 | JUNE 29 – JULY 5, 2016 | BOISEweekly

ON SALE NOW AT TICKETMASTER.COM SWAGGER, JUNE 29
If Park City, Utah-based Celtic rockers Swagger don’t compel you into a head-banging jig, you might want to have your adrenal gland checked. It’s a big sound filled with frenetic fiddle and driving rhythms that border on punk or ska—all centered on “the expected Irish celebration of drink, mischief and music.” With three studio albums under its kilt, Swagger has kept some illustrious company, playing alongside venerable acts like The Young Dubliners. It’s not all brogue stomping party anthems, though. Swagger prides itself on daring to explore “oppression and take an emigrant’s perspective on the virtues and vices of the Irish-American culture.” If you happen to miss the Alive After Five show on June 29, Swagger is set to swing back through Boise for the annual Highland Games, which runs Friday, Sept. 23-Saturday, Sept. 24.

BUILT TO SPILL, JULY 4, THE OLYMPIC
Built to Spill has been one of Idaho’s proudest exports for more than two decades, in part because the band became an arbiter for guitar-driven indie-rock. In the same way frontman Doug Martsch cites J Mascis as an influence, Martsch likely tops many young guitarists’ “Musicians I Want To Play Like” list. Through recording, touring and nonpareil musicianship, Martsch and Built to Spill have garnered a great deal of acclaim worldwide, yet are still a valuable part of the Boise community. When many people will be heading to the park to watch Fourth of July fireworks, Built to Spill—currently touring as a trio with Martsch, Jason Albertini (bass) and Steve Gere—will be plugging in for a show to benefit Boise Hive, a nonprofit that provides rehearsal space, support and resources for musicians. With locals The Hand and Toy Zoo opening, it promises to be an incredible show in a beautiful space for a worthy cause. Now that’s a happy holiday. —Amy Atkins With The Hand and Toy Zoo. $20, 8 p.m. The Olympic, 1009 Main St., facebook.com/theolympicboise. Tix: eventbrite.com.

SCREEN EXTRA JOHN LE CARRE’S SMALL SCREEN TRIUMPH
Memo to the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences: Please don’t forget Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie when you’re doling out Emmy nominations on Thursday, July 14. Their performances in this past spring’s The Night Manager on AMC B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
were head-and-shoulders above all others. Considering how formidable the level of acting has been on the small screen of late, that should be enough to vault Messrs. Hiddleston and Laurie to a gold statuette. Still, The Night Manager slipped in and out of the crowded television space when it first aired on AMC in
April and May. A word to the wise: find this miniseries, based on the John le Carre bestseller, on one of many VOD streaming platforms as soon as possible and thank us later. While le Carre’s novels have been ideally translated to the big screen (see this week’s review of Our Kind of Traitor, above), this
particular thriller is perfectly paced for the TV miniseries format. Here’s an extra treat for le Carre fans: he makes a blink-and-you’llmiss-it cameo in The Night Manager. Where or when? Well, that’s a mystery, too. —George Prentice BOISEweekly | JUNE 29 – JULY 5, 2016 | 17
BEERGUZZLER AMERICAN PALE ALES
FREMONT UNIVERSALE PALE, $1.60-$1.90 A decent head with good persistence tops this hazy, orange tinged pour. The aromas are a light mix of grain; soft, resiny hops; and a touch of stone fruit. Very smooth and well balanced on the palate, there’s a pleasant biscuit quality to the malt and a nice backbone of lightly bitter hops. Citrus and pineapple come through on the finish. Outstanding. GOODLIFE SWEET AS! PACIFIC ALE, $1.60$1.90 It’s a bright gold in the glass with a thick, short-lived head. Lots of bright fruit on the nose, you get melon, mango and berry. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, the not-too-sweet malt is colored by creamy orange and backed by light hops. Light carbonation makes for a less filling, great tasting brew. ODELL DRUMROLL AMERICAN PALE ALE, $1.70-$2 A light amber pour with a cushiony two-finger head, it leaves a lovely lacing. The hop aromas are the most aggressive of the trio, a combo of pine and citrus zest. That’s true of the palate as well, with a hop profile that pushes toward IPA levels. There’s just enough sweet malt and ripe fruit flavors to keep things in line. —David Kirkpatrick 18 | JUNE 29 – JULY 5, 2016 | BOISEweekly
PATRIC K SWE E NE Y
Declare your independence with an American Pale Ale, a style we liberated from the British. Originating in the early 1700s when the technology first allowed for roasting paler malt, they were often called bitters to separate them from sweeter brown ales. Our American version tends to use softer malt and a more assertive hop profile than the Brits’. Here are three very different takes on the style:
FROM BOOTH TO MOUTH Brunching at the Boise Farmers Market ALE X KIESIG
Under a high summer sky, pop-tents provide shade to the Boise Farmers Market at 10th and Grove streets. From late spring into fall, farmers, specialty food makers and wineries set up here each Saturday and, by 10 a.m., the market is awake with music and voices. The focus here is food: asparagus, radishes, spring onions, corn, peas, herbs and leafy greens. Berries and, soon, tomatoes. Porcini mushrooms that taste like the smell of a forest, garlicky ramps and lingonberries tart as limes. Chicken, duck and quail eggs. Goat cheese, milk, butter and cream. Bison, elk, goat. Beef oxtail, hanging tender, flat iron. Honey, jelly, bread. Fresh pasta and kombucha. It’s all lovely, but nothing bombards an appetite like the smell of frying dough, so I set out for a walking, wandering brunch.
NITRO ICED COFFEE—$4
The first order of business here, like life, is to get some coffee. Neckar does not just serve “some coffee” from its minimalist white cart: Its spokedwheelhouse is pour-over coffee created with an exacting, seven-step method. The nitro-cask cold brew is the cup of coffee you will think about all week. Like with Guinness, a milky, haunting thunderhead forms in a brew as rich as chocolate. The guy next in line asked me, urgently, where I had managed to buy a pint of stout. Though he seemed doubtful, I told him, “This is better.”
Haji Sunguro International Foods is a tented booth with a single hot case of pastries on a table draped in a floral cloth. It serves black-eyed pea fritters, sweet fried dough flavored with coconut and a rice-beef soup, as well as its signature item—samboosas—which are Somali pastries: a crispy, puffed triangle of meat, eggs or lentils with onions, bell pepper, cilantro and garlic. All items are served a la carte. A few condiments are offered: Sriracha, ranch dressing, ketchup and Louisiana hot sauce. All of them kind of work.
BOB DELUXE WAFFLE—$8.50
Waffle Me Up serves thick, Belgian-style waffles—mostly sweet versions, from the $3 plain waffle with powdered sugar, to strawberries and Nutella or cookie butter and banana.
Quit waffling and get yourself to the Boise Farmers Market for brunch.
The yeast-risen waffles have depth—chewy like a perfect pretzel—which provides a solid platform for savory flavors, as well. The BOB Deluxe is layered with a fried market egg, bacon, organic syrup and rags of basil on a slice of havarti that melts as though relaxing in sunshine. Of all the vendors sampled, the customer service at Waffle Me Up was most sincere. They did the little things well, coming out to ask us about our food and remembering the name of a guest who had been there only one time before.
MEAT LOVERS’ PIZZA—$8.50
Il Segreto translates to “the secret,” and the setup of the Il Segreto Wood-Fired Pizza stand seems to be obscuring the primary feature: At the back of a setup of banquet tables and banners is the hearth, a brick-mouthed pizza cave on wheels. An 8-inch single-serving pie takes about eight minutes, which seems a little long for the orderand-stand-around-until-it’s-ready model, but that allowed time to go pick up a few things at some of the other booths and, in the end, the wait was worth it. The sausage, sliced meatballs, pepperoni and cheese were rich but not greasy. There was the right amount of sauce, which had zing. We especially liked the thin, flavorful crust, which was bubbling and blistered. If anything, we’d have waited longer if, perhaps, the flames were allowed to caress the crust a little more, but I ate pizza for breakfast outside, and I was happy.
APPLE HAND PIE—$5
Blue Feather Bakery’s booth looks like a Pinterest country fair: miniature pies in tins and hand pies laid out on robin-egg blue shelving, or in baskets or wire bins on burlap-draped tables. Each Blue Feather hand pie is a little different than its neighbor, but all are dressed in white paper sleeves
tied with colored string. One weekend, the lemon curd hand pie contained perhaps the best single bite of portable dessert I’ve ever had: layers of warm, buttery pastry crumbling to a cool, tart lemon center. A chef friend who is an expert at pastry agreed, saying, “Whoa.” More recently, an apple hand pie crackled with coarse sugar was not quite as decadent as I’d have liked more of its cinnamon-flecked filling, but it was delicious nonetheless.
BROWNIE COOKIE VANILLA LATTE GELATO SANDWICH—$4
Mobley’s Craft Gelato owner Mark Mobley has grown his business of plant-based, small-batch craft gelato by word of mouth at the market and is delivering pints door-to-door. The phrase “plant-based gelato” is less elegant than the actual product, whose creaminess and texture is among the best coconut-based frozen desserts I’ve tried. Even if you have no dietary restrictions, you might choose this over ice cream. The ice cream sandwich was excess above a whole morning’s worth of excess. Though a little chilly at first, as it warmed, it was a beautiful final note for the market. Dining is certainly not the market’s primary design, and my multi-cart experiment was a meal certainly not intended by all these well-meaning and talented business owners. The totality of what I ate combined for some weirdness, for sure. We also realized almost everything for sale you could eat right away was bread, or sugar or both, yet there are so many vegetables so close. After all this, there was so much I missed, but had no room for anything else—not beef sticks, cookies, tamales or beignets. Not until next Saturday. B O ISE WE E KLY.C O M
CITIZEN JILLIAN KATES
Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s ‘fair lady’ GEORGE PRENTICE
Jillian Kates is preparing to “dance all night;” then do it again and again. In fact, she’ll dance her nights away all summer as Eliza Doolittle in Idaho Shakespeare Festival’s production of My Fair Lady, running Friday, July 1 through Friday, Aug. 26. The Oklahoma City native remembers how, as a young girl, she would leap on stage after watching a performance at the neighborhood theater. “I’d run out on that stage as they were sweeping up and they couldn’t get me to leave,” she said. Professional voice lessons followed, leading to countless high school and college productions and a bachelor of arts in music from Baldwin Wallace University. Today, Kates is a New York City-based actress with her sights set on Broadway. But this summer, she’s ISF’s “fair lady.” I’m not sure how you got this part, but my sense is that your performance as Lily in last summer’s ISF production of The Secret Garden was as close to an audition as it gets. You knocked it out of the park, quite literally, with your high notes. I feel as if many of my roles led me to this moment. Roles such as... Marian in The Music Man, Reno in Anything Goes and, of course, Glinda in Wicked [Kates was part of the national touring production of the Broadway blockbuster]. Eliza Doolittle may be one of the most recognizable parts in musical theater, yet she’s still a bit of an enigma. Eliza, [first created by George Bernard Shaw in Pygmalion] has to be one of the most complex, interesting, bawdy, bold human beings ever written. What do you think motivates her? She’s a common working girl and she sees socialites walk by every day. She peers through flower shop windows and dreams of being inside that shop someday. Shaw saw Eliza as the definition of a working girl. Yet she becomes the ultimate definition of glamour. B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
Have you deconstructed her relationship with Professor Higgins? We’re exploring Shaw’s original intent: not a romantic notion, but rather a magnetic pull to one another. They both teach each other something invaluable. I hope you can appreciate audiences desperately wanting My Fair Lady to be a love story. It still is. A love of speech. A love of learning. A love for a fellow human being. Talk to me about My Fair Lady’s costumes. In most productions, the costumes are practically a character unto themselves. Our costume designer, Charlotte Yetman, is a genius. The colors and fabric will definitely help tell the story. At first, I appear with a lot of bold colors but as I begin to be dressed by Professor Higgins, the colors begin to fade. By the time of the big ballroom scene, I’ll be all in white. As Eliza finds her true self again, the colors being to reemerge. I’m presuming young boys and girls approach you after a show and tell you they want your life. I love kids and I love time to listen to them about their lives. I was on tour with Wicked and my last city was my hometown of Oklahoma City. There I was, walking through the same stage door where I had stood outside as a little girl. And then there they were, these beautiful kids. It was quite a moment. What advice might you give your younger self? Be fearless. Be prepared that not everyone may like you. It’s a pretty hard lesson. By nature, we want everyone to love us—on stage and off. That can be a bit dangerous, but everyone’s different. Believe it or not, not everyone is going to love mint chocolate chip ice cream. Not love mint chocolate chip? How is that possible? I know, right? BOISEweekly | JUNE 29 – JULY 5, 2016 | 19
RECREATION WHEN A FAMILY CAN’T AFFORD SUMMER
‘Poverty knows no season’ TARYN HADFIELD While many American families anticipate a summer filled with camping trips, visits to amusement parks or vacations in exotic locales, many Idaho children are part of an increasing number of U.S. families that The New York Times reports, “can’t afford summer.” As The Times’ KJ Dell’Antonia wrote June 5, a growing number of parents continue to find summer to be a “financial and logistical nightmare.” “Poverty knows no season,” said Dalynn Kuster, multi-programs manager for Boise-based nonprofit El Ada Community Action Partnership. “There are too many families struggling who are invisible to the rest of us.” Kuster knows well how burdensome the financial strain can be on low-income families during the summer months. She spends her days helping local families get access to food, housing and assistance with utility bills. When summer comes around, Kuster said she knows without the shelter, meals and support system school provides during the fall and winter, parents are left wondering what to do with their kids from May through August. Kuster said she has seen the issues for low-income families become more and more complex over the years. “Families are facing high rent and high barriers in providing for their children,” Kuster said. “Their wages are not going up, and they are struggling to gain more job skills and education, but the cost to live and survive keeps on increasing.” When children don’t have access to body- and mind-enriching programs during the summer, they often struggle with being prepared for the next school year. On average, reading skills of lowincome children lapse in summer months and are frequently not regained. That said, there may be more at stake than just learning loss for kids in low-income families. “When families don’t have access to good opportunities and programs, their children begin to struggle in school and feel unsuccessful, leading them on a downward spiral of lost confidence,” said Roseanne Swain, superintendent of recre20 | JUNE 29 – JULY 5, 2016 | BOISEweekly
A number of Boise area nonprofits and agencies stress fun that doesn’t stress the family bank account.
ation for the Boise Department of Parks and Recreation. Treasure Valley YMCA Marketing and Communications Director Katherine Johnson said she sees more and more families every year in need of financial assistance—about one in four YMCA members and participants receive some kind of aid. For the Y’s early childhood development programs—like day-care and pre-school—the numbers are even higher: it’s one in three members that access financial assistance. “The struggles facing parents today are far different than the previous generation,” said Johnson. “Young adults are having children while dealing with the burdens of student loans, job competition and an increased cost of living.” Johnson also reports seeing more and more oneparent or unmarried families, where children don’t have the ability to enjoy programs like a robotics camp or art lessons. At the Y’s Horsethief Reservoir Camp, scores of kids from struggling families are scholarshipped into the overnight summer camp located in the forests near Cascade. “And that’s our goal: to have a child from a high-income neighborhood bunking with a child who is a refugee,” said Johnson. “No one is turned away.” Back in Boise, the city’s Parks and Recreation Department also offers scholarships for all of its programs, covering up to 100 percent of the cost. Those scholarships include programs at the Boise Zoo, Foothills Learning Center and the Boise Urban Garden Center, among others. Swain emphasizes the importance of affordability for all members, not just low-income families. At the El Ada Community Action Partner-
ship, case managers do what they can they can to offer some kind of summer respite for cashstrapped families. For example, El Ada distributes thousands of free passes to the Boise Zoo each summer. “The passes give families a break from their constant stress and allow them to enjoy a positive bonding activity together,” said Kuster. Scholarships, passes and free summer programs can change the course of a child’s life. Swain shared the story of Winston, a boy she had met while working at a Boise Parks and Recreation community center. In 2008, Winston was 10 years old and growing up in poverty. With the family’s limited income, “Winston was bright, but had few resources,” said Swain. However, Boise Parks and Recreation was able to provide Winston with a number of opportunities and mentored the young boy at a neighborhood community center. Ultimately, Winston became a member of the Mayor’s Youth Council. After graduating high school earlier this year, Winston was accepted to Princeton University on a full-ride scholarship, beginning this fall. “Stories like these remind me that summer programs aren’t about kicking a ball around or making crafts,” said Swain. “It’s about helping every child to succeed and realize their full potential.” But the need is ongoing. Treasure Valley organizations say they’re constantly working to meet the growing needs, with a singular goal: To give all children access to a memorable summer. “This is what makes Boise such a beautiful community,” said Swain. “We have our hearts open to the people, families and refugees who are struggling. We care about every child in the community.” B O ISE WE E KLY.C O M

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “When a jet flies low overhead, every glass in the cupboard sings,” writes aphorist James Richardson. “Feelings are like that: choral, not single; mixed, never pure.” That’s always true, but it will be intensely true for you in the coming weeks. I hope you can find a way to tolerate, even thrive on, the flood of ambiguous complexity. I hope you won’t chicken out and try to pretend that your feelings are one-dimensional and easily understandable. In my opinion, you are ripe to receive rich lessons in the beauty and power of mysterious emotions.
gery, a nurse said to me, ‘You may as well try magical thinking. Regular thinking hasn’t helped.’ I said to the nurse, ‘Well, why the hell not?’ That was seven years ago.” In bringing O’Dell’s testimony to your attention, I don’t mean to suggest you will have any health problems that warrant a strong dose of magical thinking. Not at all. But you may get wrapped up in a psychological twist or a spiritual riddle that would benefit from magical thinking. And what exactly is magical thinking? Here’s one definition: The stories that unfold in your imagination have important effects on what actually happens to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Pop artist Andy Warhol said that in the future, everyone would be famous for 15 minutes. His idea had a resonance with the phrase “nine days’ wonder,” which as far back as Elizabethan times referred to a person or event that captured the public’s fascination for a while. You Capricorns are entering a phase when you’re far more likely than usual to bask in the spotlight. Between now and September 2017, I bet you’ll garner at least a short burst of glory, acclaim, or stardom— perhaps much more. Are you ready for your close-up? Have you prepped for the influx of attention that may be coming your way?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Let’s talk about X-factors and wild cards and strange attractors. By their very nature, they are unpredictable and ephemeral, even when they offer benevolent breakthroughs. So you may not even notice their arrival if you’re entranced by your expectations and stuck in your habitual ways. But here’s the good news, Pisces: Right now you are not unduly entranced by your expectations or stuck in your habits. Odds are high that you will spy the sweet twists of fate—the X-factors and wild cards and strange attractors—as they float into view. You will pounce on them and put them to work while they’re still fresh. And then they will help you hike your ratings or get the funding you need or animate the kind of love that heals.
A Petition to change the name of Nicole Katheryn Scown, now residing in the City of Boise, State of Idaho, has been filed in the District Court in Ada County, Idaho. The name will change to Finnian Kristopher Scown. The reason for the change in name is: I’ve never preferred or used my legal name and the name I’ve used for a year is what I want to change it to.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY BY ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): During winter, some bears spend months hibernating. Their body temperatures and heart rates drop. They breathe drowsily. Their movements are minimal. Many hummingbirds engage in a similar slowdown—but they do it every single night. By day they are among the most manic creatures on earth, flapping their wings and gathering sustenance with heroic zeal. When the sun slips below the horizon, they rest with equal intensity. In my estimation, Aries, you don’t need a full-on immersion in idleness like the bears. But you’d benefit from a shorter stint, akin to the hummingbird’s period of dormancy. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): “Dear Dr. Brezsny: A psychic predicted that sometime this year I will fall in love with a convenience store clerk who’s secretly a down-on-his-luck prince of a small African country. She said that he and I have a unique destiny. Together we will break the world’s record for dancing without getting bitten in a pit of cobras while drunk on absinthe on our honeymoon. But there’s a problem. I didn’t have time to ask the psychic how I’ll meet my soulmate, and I can’t afford to pay $250 for another reading. Can you help?— Mopey Taurus.” Dear Mopey: The psychic lied. Neither she nor anyone else can see what the future will bring you. Why? Because what
happens will be largely determined by your own actions. I suggest you celebrate this fact. It’s the perfect time to do so: July is Feed Your Willpower Month. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Of all the concert pianos in the world, 80 percent of them are made by Steinway. A former president of the company once remarked that in each piano, “243 taut strings exert a pull of 40,000 pounds on an iron frame.” He said it was “proof that out of great tension may come great harmony.” That will be a potential talent of yours in the coming weeks, Gemini. Like a Steinway piano, you will have the power to turn tension into beauty. But will you actually accomplish this noble goal, or will your efforts be less melodious? It all depends on how much poised self-discipline you summon. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Once upon a time, weren’t you the master builder who never finished building your castle? Weren’t you the exile who wandered aimlessly while fantasizing about the perfect sanctuary of the past or the sweet safety zone of the future? Didn’t you perversely nurture the ache that arose from your sense of not feeling at home in the world? I hope that by now you have renounced all of those kinky inclinations. If you haven’t, now would be an excellent time to do so. How

might you reinvest the mojo that will be liberated by the demise of those bad habits? LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In accordance with the astrological omens, I have selected three aphorisms by poet James Richardson to guide you. Aphorism No. 1: “The worst helplessness is forgetting there is help.” My commentary: You have the power to avoid that fate. Start by identifying the sources of healing and assistance that are available to you. Aphorism No. 2: “You do not have to be a fire to keep one burning.” My commentary: Generate all the heat and light you can, yes, but don’t torch yourself. Aphorism No. 3: “Patience is not very different from courage. It just takes longer.” My commentary: But it may not take a whole lot longer. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You may not know this, but I am the founder and CEO of Proud To Be Humble, an acclaimed organization devoted to minimizing vanity. It is my sworn duty to protest any ego that exceeds the acceptable limits as defined by the Geneva Convention on Narcissism. However, I now find myself conflicted. Because of the lyrical beauty and bighearted charisma that are currently emanating from your ego, I am unable, in good conscience, to ask you to tone yourself down. In fact, I hereby grant you a license
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The next 28 days will not be a favorable period to sit around passively wishing to be noticed. Nor will it be a good time to wait to be rescued or to trust in others to instigate desirable actions. On the other hand, it will be an excellent phase to be an initiator: to decide what needs to be done, to state your intentions concisely, and to carry out your master plan with alacrity and efficiency. To help ensure your success during the next 28 days, make this declaration each morning before breakfast: “I don’t want to OBSERVE the show. I want to BE the show.” SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “In life, as in bicycling, pedal when you have to, coast when you can.” So says author James Lough, and now I’m passing on his advice to you—just in time for your transition from the heavy-pedaling season to the coasting-is-fun phase. I suspect that at this juncture in your life story you may be a bit addicted to the heavy pedaling. You could be so accustomed to the intensity that you’re inclined to be suspicious of an opportunity to enjoy ease and grace. Don’t be like that. Accept the gift with innocent gratitude.

FIND THE HISTORIC AMERICAN COOKBOOK PROJECT
If you’re like most Americans, your Fourth of July menu may consist of things like hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, fried chicken or steak. The Founding Fathers, however, would have found that board of fare incomprehensible (except for maybe the chicken and steak). According to most sources, none other than John Adams, the second president of the United States, celebrated his vote for independence with a meal of green turtle soup, poached salmon with egg sauce, green peas, boiled potatoes and Indian pudding or pandowdy (a spiced apple pie baked in a deep dish). digital.lib.msu.edu/projects/ If you want to celebrate this Fourth of July in the style of the first patriots, check out the University of Michigan’s Historic American Cookbook Project, which compiled and digitized 76 cookbooks drawn from the university’s collection of 10,000 volumes. Accessible on the Michigan State special collections website under “Feeding America,” a few gems come close to the revolutionary period. Looke hence for an olde repast. —Zach Hagadone
Advice for those on the verge
Our neighbor across the street is trying to trap our cats with a cage set up in his driveway with a bowl of food in it to entice them into his yard. I’ve spent years training our cats not to cross the street. We also suspect he is using a pellet gun to shoot at them. They love being outside in warm weather. They don’t understand why they can’t be out because of this cruel person. Are there laws in Idaho that protect people’s pets from being harassed while on their own property? This person has even tried to call them over to their house when my husband and I were standing in the yard with the kitties. What say you, Minerva? —Kitten Patrol
DEAR KITTEN PATROL,
My first suggestion is to document everything that happens. Dates and times will be important. Take pictures of the setup. Send your neighbors a certified letter asking them to stop harassing your pets. Consult with Idaho Statutes Title 25—Animals, Chapter 35—Animal Care. I think you will find that there are protections in place. Animals are considered property and it is your responsibility to protect your property. Thank goodness you have been able to teach your cats to stick close to home. Once pets leave your property and go onto another person’s property, things get much more complicated. Good luck with this difficult and unneighborly situation. SUBMIT questions to Minerva’s Breakdown at bit.ly/MinervasBreakdown or mail them to Boise Weekly, 523 Broad St., Boise, ID 83702. All submissions remain anonymous.
