THE FUTURE OF PRIVATE PRISONS
Last month, Mother Jones published a devastating investigation of a private prison in Louisiana run by Corrections Corporation of America—the nation’s largest for-profit prison operator and a corporation that has a troubled history in Idaho, as well. Titled “My Four Months as a Private Prison Guard,” journalist Shane Bauer embedded himself in the day-to-day operations of Winn Correctional Center. He underwent the CCA training program, wore the CCA uniform and spent his days with fellow CCA employees. In five harrowing chapters, Bauer painted the picture of not only an institution run amok—with slipshod policies, abusive treatment, understaffing and criminal behavior on both sides of the bars—but a system on the verge of failure. Idahoans should be familiar with this story. A version of it happened here when CCA ran the Idaho State Correctional Institution—that is, until 2013, after a series of scandals related to prison staffing and inmate treatment finally led to a parting of the ways (and a hefty settlement) between the state and its erstwhile contractor. Less than a month after the Mother Jones story, a federal report showed privately run prisons are more costly to operate, more violent and function with less oversight than their government-run counterparts. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a directive that all facilities operated by the Bureau of Prisons but managed by private vendors should be transferred back to state and federal authorities as their contracts run out. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, which operates the nation’s network of immigration detention facilities, announced Sept. 5 it, too, would review its use of contract prisons. In the shadow of the continuing controversy over for-profit incarceration, the last private lockup in Idaho has been quietly doing its work in the desert outside Kuna. Boise Weekly staff writer Harrison Berry toured the facility and spoke to its warden to find out how it operates, what makes it different from prisons like the one exposed by Mother Jones and what its future might be.

ACHD says this crosswalk at State and 36th streets is “fully ADA compliant.”
One Idaho facility has survived hard times for the contract prison industry
A CROSS(ING) TO BEAR
HARRISON BERRY Pleasant Valley Road east of Kuna is desolate. On either side are huge gravel pits and vast reaches of high desert specked with hardy shrubs and dry grass. It’s also prison row. Dotted across the otherwise barren landscape are signs for the Idaho State Correctional Center, the South Boise Women’s Correctional Center and the Correctional Alternative Placement Program—the only remaining private lockup in the state of Idaho. Opened in 2010, CAPP is a minimum security facility owned and operated by Management and Training Corporation that houses about 430 low- to medium-risk male inmates undergoing treatment for substance abuse or cognitive issues. It’s one of four minimum security prisons in Idaho and boasts a 93 percent “graduation” rate, meaning it releases its inmates after they have completed a rigorous regimen. “Believe it or not, I care,” said CAPP Warden Brian Finn, pointing to a brass pin affixed to his lanyard, bearing the acronym BIONIC—a motto of sorts for MTC. In mid August, the Department of Justice issued a directive to the federal Bureau of Prisons to begin phasing out contracts with private prison companies, following a report that showed their facilities were more violent than their public counterparts. Following the announcement of the DOJ’s directive, the fallout was swift and severe. Corrections Corporation of America, the largest private prison company in America, saw its stock fall 40 percent within hours of the opening bell on Wall Street. For its part, MTC—the third largest prison contractor in the country behind CCA and Geo Group—pushed back at the directive: “bas[ing] this decision on cost, safety, security, and programming is wrong,” the company stated in a release. “The majority of inmates in contract prisons are from one country which brings inherent increased risk of violence.” Prison industry watchers, meanwhile, were quick to declare private prisons a failure. BOISE WEEKLY.COM
Opened in 2010, the Correctional Alternative Placement Program—Idaho’s only remaining private lockup— houses about 430 low- to medium-risk male inmates and boasts a 93 percent “graduation” rate.
“That type of model hasn’t worked. We don’t believe it’s a model that leads to the protection of the civil rights people have,” said ACLU-Idaho Executive Director Leo Morales.
RIDERS ON THE STORM The inside of CAPP looks like a middle school. Polished concrete floors radiate from a central security booth toward communal living areas, classrooms, restrooms, medical, segregation and the kitchen. Inmates spend their days in classrooms decorated with murals featuring nature scenes and pop culture images alongside encouraging slogans, including one attributed to Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter: “They need love the most when they appear to deserve it the least.” Much of the criticism surrounding the private prison system has been focused on violence and lack of oversight. Finn said violence and incarceration-related problems at prisons aren’t a matter of if, but when. “Bad things are going to happen in this business,” he said. “That’s what we measure ourselves on: How we respond to issues.” Because CAPP is a minimum security lockup for those undergoing substance abuse and behavioral programs, however, it’s in a different class of prison with a different set of problems. When asked about a relatively high number of complaints regarding food service at CAPP, Finn explained that a good number of them were related to offenders’ displeasure with the water-tojuice mixture served with meals. The matter was resolved only after extensive tweaking of the ratio. “I spent more time on juice... you have no idea,” Finn said. Of a more serious nature, in the past 24 months there have been 175 incidents of violence
requiring disciplinary action at CAPP, compared to 155 at the North Idaho Correctional Institution (pop. 414), 140 at the South Idaho Correctional Institution (pop. 565) and 36 at the Saint Anthony Work Camp (pop. 242)—all of which are all-male, minimum security facilities. The number of violent incidents requiring disciplinary action at the facility ranged from four to 14 incidents per month between August 2014 and December 2015. In January 2016, CAPP began accepting parole violators transferred from crowded county jails, and there was a spike of disciplinary actions clustered in sexual activity, “bodily fluids” and harassment categories. The new group, which Finn said is not required to take part in programming, disrupted the other offenders participating in rider programs, which make up the bulk of CAPP’s population. The situation is far from ideal, Finn said, but he doesn’t foresee it being permanent. CAPP has a wholly different atmosphere from a general population facility. There are 351 rider inmates at the facility, and the classes they take part in range from substance abuse avoidance training to life skills. Programming lasts from 6:30 a.m.-9:30 p.m. almost daily and class sizes were recently reduced from 20 inmates to 10, allowing them more time with instructors and therapists. Since CAPP opened in 2010, 5,573 people have been through the program—1,727 in the past two years. “There’s a lot of busy days, a lot of programming,” said Finn, who cruised the halls like a school principal during a recent visit, ducking his head into various classrooms to say hello. “The more busy they are, the 6 less they get in trouble—more recreation, more activity, stuff like that.”
Sometimes it takes a ﬁre alarm to get attention. When an alarm rang through City Council Chambers at Boise City Hall on Aug. 30, one citizen took the opportunity to bend the ear of Council President Elaine Clegg as everyone exited the building. For the record, there was no ﬁre, but what the citizen told Clegg was alarming nonetheless. He recounted to her a scene in which he spotted a woman using a wheelchair unable to reach a crosswalk button at State Street and Veterans Parkway/36th Street. The timing couldn’t have been more ironic. At the moment the ﬁre alarm went off, the City Council was getting an update on pending transportation projects—near the top of the wish list the city would soon send to the Ada County Highway District were improved street crossings on State Street. After everyone was allowed back in City Hall and Clegg gaveled the council workshop back into session, she shared what she had just heard from the citizen who approached her. “He told me that he spotted a woman in a wheelchair that was unable to reach the button and was unable to get the crosswalk turned for her. The man watched her quite a while and when he was ﬁnally able to get out of trafﬁc, he circled around to help her,” Clegg told the audience. “We’ve got to be looking at all of the crosswalk buttons to make sure that they’re meeting accessibility standards and that they’re indeed accessible. We have to prioritize that.” City of Boise Transportation Planner Karen Gallagher looked at ACHD Project Manager Ryan Head, whose agency is responsible for crosswalks and streets throughout the county. “I would ask that you go out and immediately look at that button at State Street and Veterans Parkway, and make sure those buttons are accessible for folks in wheelchairs,” Clegg said. “We’ll go take a look,” Head assured Clegg. Later in the week, ofﬁcials at ACHD were insistent walkways and crosswalk buttons were compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, a federal law since 1990. “It’s fully ADA compliant,” said ACHD Chief Information Ofﬁcer Craig Quintana. “All of the buttons have good access to them, no curbing or any other obstructions.” It’s true there is access but reaching 6 those crosswalk buttons is awkward at BOISEweeklycSEPTEMBER 7–13, 2016c5

IDAHO’S LAST PRIVATE PRISON

DOJ VS. PRIVATE PRISONS The DOJ directive against contract renewal for private prisons came on the heels of a damning report by the Office of the Inspector General that concluded contract prisons under the auspices of the Federal Bureau of Prisons were less safe and subject to less oversight than their BoP counterparts. It found contract prisons to be comparatively poorly staffed, a contributing factor to numerous prison riots between 2008 and 2015, resulting in extensive property damage, injury and, in one case, the death of a corrections officer. After a riot at the Willacy County Correctional Center in Texas, BOP declared the facility “uninhabitable” and terminated its contract with its operator, MTC. Private prisons were initially billed as a way to save money, but BoP contracts don’t require the companies operating them to itemize expenses. Between 2011 and 2014, expenditures from contract BoP facilities increased from $562 million to $639 million—approximately 13.7 percent—and the DoJ’s report was “not able to analyze and compare costs incurred … between the contract prisons and BoP institutions.” On a per-inmate basis, contract prisons are cheaper. In the four years of the DOJ study, the per-capita annual cost of detaining a BOP prisoner rose from $23,780 to $25,251. During the same period, the cost at private prisons decreased from $22,951 to $22,159. At the time, 14 BOP facilities run by three private corporations housed approximately 27,000 inmates. For Morales, with ACLU-Idaho, the rising cost of operating contract prisons and the decreasing cost of housing prisoners in them is a red flag. “I think the reality of what we have seen is that [contract prisons] have been more costly,” he said. The review boiled down to two recommendations: 1. convene a group of experts to analyze contract prisons’ safety records; 2. improve oversight and monitoring of them. Instead, the DOJ announced it would begin phasing out private contracts at 14 BOP sites after a nearly 30-year, multi-billion dollar partnership. By 2017, three such lockups could close, reducing the number of federal inmates at the remaining facilities to fewer than 14,200—less than half the high of nearly 30,000 inmates in privately run prisons in 2013. “It’s been a long time coming,” said Brett Burkhardt, a sociology professor at Oregon State University. The DOJ announcement was a blow to the contract prison industry, but not a fatal one. The directive to phase out private BOP prisons didn’t include the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) lockups—a prison system for illegal immigrants overseen by the DOJ but subject to a different set of rules from BOP facilities. According to the Government Accountability Office, ICE 5

best and could be nearly unreachable for someone who uses a wheelchair. In 5 addition, the buttons at the northeast corner of State and 36th streets are mounted on an elevated pole (shared by streetlights and trafﬁc lights) on the far side of an additional curb. The U.S. Department of Transportation Manual on Uniform Trafﬁc Control Devices, section 4E.08, states pedestrian pushbuttons should be “unobstructed and adjacent to a level, all-weather surface to provide access from a wheelchair.” Clegg later told Boise Weekly she left another phone message with ACHD, suggesting an extender or “mast arm” be afﬁxed to the crosswalk button for better access. The intersection at 36th Street isn’t the only section of State Street Clegg says warrants more attention. She said a new pedestrian crosswalk at State and 34th streets is long overdue. “Given the tragedy at that intersection, we should expedite that,” Clegg told Gallagher and Head at the Boise Council workshop session. Clegg was referring to the April 14 incident when 31-year-old Dwayne Poulton, disabled after a long childhood battle with brain cancer, was struck by a car heading eastbound on State Street near 34th Street, where there is no crosswalk. Poulton, a lifelong Boise resident who lived on a small disability income and was a well-liked volunteer for Camp Rainbow Gold and the American Cancer Society, died a short time later. The cause of death was blunt force trauma. Bike/pedestrian advocates argued the area desperately needs options for safely crossing of State Street, where more than 30,000 vehicles speed by on a daily basis. During the Aug. 30 workshop, the Boise Council heard ACHD had plans for a pedestrian crossing at State and 34th streets. “But we need to get that done ASAP,” said Clegg. “We’ve been requesting this for years. Is there any way to expedite this?” The proposed crossing could get ﬁnal ACHD approval as soon as Wednesday, Sept. 8. The plan has already been included in ACHD’s FY 2017 budget, which goes into effect Saturday, Oct. 1. —George Prentice 6cSEPTEMBER 7–13, 2016cBOISEweekly

housed nearly 400,000 people every year by 2014 but owned 11 percent of prison beds. Another 18 percent of those beds are in six for-profit prisons. However, DHS signaled on Sept. 5 that it would review its private-contracted facilities. “The Department of Justice announced that the Bureau of Prisons will reduce and ultimately end its use of private prisons,” Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson announced in a department news release. “I directed our Homeland Security Advisory Council … to evaluate whether the immigration detention operations conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement should move in the same direction.”
‘BUDDIES’ Private prisons have long been features of Idaho’s political landscape. According to campaign finance records, Otter received $10,500 from Corrections Corporation of America between 2009 and 2012. Those contributions haunted the governor during his 2014 re-election campaign, when his opponents, Democrat A.J. Balukoff and Libertarian John Bujak, accused the incumbent of appointing “his buddies” to oversee the collapse of the Gem State’s relationship with CCA. In 2013, CCA handed over the Idaho Correctional Center and a $1 million settlement to the state of Idaho for understaffing the state lockup to the tune of 4,800 hours during a seven-month period. Months before, eight inmates at the facility filed suit against CCA, alleging it had colluded with prison gangs to control the facility. The string of controversies eventually landed CCA in the crosshairs of the FBI and the U.S. attorney for the state of Idaho, but no charges were ever filed. The fiasco ended CCA’s relationships with the state, but Idaho politicians still have financial relationships with the contract prison industry. Otter received $10,000 from MTC between 2010 and
2014. Other recipients of MTC contributions include House Judiciary Rules and Administration Committee Chairman Rep. Rich Wills (R-Glenns Ferry) ($250) and fellow committee member Rep. Luke Malek (R-Coeur d’Alene) ($250). Though the governor’s office had no comment on the DOJ’s directive regarding private prisons, Otter Press Secretary Jon Hanian wrote in an email, “The point is campaign contributions play no part in operational decisions.” Beyond campaign contributions, Utah-based MTC has a lobbying arm in Idaho: Martin Bilbao and Mckinsey Lyon of Gallatin Public Affairs. The private prison industry has also been linked to the American Legislative Exchange Council, which helped draft Arizona’s controversial SB 1070, one of the toughest anti-illegal immigration laws in the country and a feeder for ICE prisons. Morales and Burkhardt said contract prison corporations have sophisticated, well-placed means for affecting policy both nationally and locally. “The reality is, [private prison corporations] have a sophisticated lobbying arm that makes a difference to policy,” Morales said. “If it didn’t, why else would they continue to invest?”
JAILHOUSE BLUES No matter what, changes are coming for private prisons—whether it’s moving to a payfor-performance model to better align costs with expenditures, as Burkhardt said, or closing shop. The relationship between CAPP and IDOC has been described as “shoulder-to-shoulder,” but when asked if the DOJ directive could be a factor in whether MTC’s Idaho contract is renewed in 2020, IDOC spokesman Jeff Ray said it’s possible. “Yes, we’ll consider the DOJ’s action—in the same way we try to take into account all information that’s relevant to this matter,” he wrote in an email. “That goes for any decision the department makes.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM

State Board of Ed before nixing The Huddle: “We felt that we substantially increased and changed the availability of alcohol at football games in situations where minors and students were a part of the area.”
ONE AND DONE Why Boise State’s tailgate alternative, The Huddle, won’t be around this football season HARRISON BERRY Boise State University football fans will have one less watering hole available when the Broncos face off against the Washington State University Cougars on Saturday, Sept. 10. The Huddle, which was inside the Caven-Williams Sports Complex, was a pre-game tailgate party alternative with alcoholic beverages, food, big-screen TVs and even children’s activities. It has gone dark following the reversal of an Idaho State Board of Education decision to allow universities to serve alcohol at sporting events. “I and other members of the board agree that it’s never good policy to have a policy, then waive it repeatedly,” said board member Dr. David Hill, referring to a Board of Ed policy prohibiting public colleges and universities from serving alcohol at sporting events except in a “clearly marked, secure area,” where those being served have a “written invitation” from the university. The board voted in 2015 to provide an exception to the policy as part of a pilot program that allowed Boise State and the University of Idaho to serve alcohol at The Huddle and The Fan Zone, respectively. During its June 16 meeting, however, the board voted 7-1 against extending the exception for a second year, effectively shutting down The Huddle and the U of I’s Fan Zone. When asked if any incidents at or complaints against The Huddle prompted the board’s decision, Boise BOISE WEEKLY.COM
State Assistant Athletic Director Max Corbet said, “No, not that I’m aware of anything, no.” The board made a point of acknowledging The Huddle’s short but clean track record. Board President Emma Atchley said rather than game-day incidents, the hypothetical problem of a minor being served alcohol drove the board’s decision. “We felt that we substantially increased and changed the availability of alcohol at football games in situations where minors and students were a part of the whole area,” Atchley said before voting to nix the exception. Hill pushed back, arguing the exception was being taken away capriciously. “There are metrics, parameters, expectations that ask, ‘Did it work? Were there any issues?’ And on that basis, ‘Should we change policy?’ I felt that we had not gone through the appropriate process,” Hill later said. The Huddle was conceived as a way for Bronco fans to gear up for game-day inside the Caven-Williams Sports Complex but, in its first year, The Huddle’s expenses—including security, setup and utilities—ran into the red to the tune of approximately $12,000. “We were trying it out and seeing how it would go,” said Corbet. “We wanted to help our fans out; to make it a first-class experience. We were hoping one day our crowds would grow, and it would become profitable.”

SHINE: AN EVENING OF AWE AND DELIGHT
ART IN THE PARK
When Boise State University Visual Arts Center Director Kirsten Furlong came across Ni De Aqui Ni De Alla (Neither Here Nor There), a 22-piece exhibition on cultural identity and border tensions from Mexican printmakers, she was intrigued. “It’s pretty rare that you see a group exhibition like that by a lot of really distinguished artists talking about these issues at the border,” said Furlong. With the help of Arizona State University Professor Rogelio Gutierrez, who compiled the series, she brought the series to Boise, and the prints—ranging from lithographs to screenprints to woodcuts—offer a journey through printing style and emotional turmoil. Through Sept. 14. Mondays-Thursdays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Fridays, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; FREE. Boise State Visual Arts Center Gallery 1, Liberal Arts Building, 1874 University Drive, 208-426-3994, art. boisestate.edu/visualartscenter.
The mission of Camp Rainbow Gold is to help kids and teens with cancer, but it does more than that. With its yearly series of camps in the Wood River Valley, the 25-year-old nonproﬁt gives the gift of fun to families that sometimes struggle to ﬁnd much to celebrate. “If you have a child who is diagnosed with cancer, the entire family is diagnosed with cancer,” said CRG volunteer Lonni LeavittBarker, whose son has been in treatment for more than three years. The camps cover everything from bike rides to rock climbing, rafting and costume parties. But they come with a price: It costs about $2,000 to take a kid to camp. To help fund the program, CRG is hosting SHINE: An Evening of Awe and Delight. Featuring dancers from Cirque du Soleil, the event tacks on dinner, dancing and music from We Are The Strike, black-tie cocktails and a live auction. 5:30 p.m.; $200, $2,000 table. Boise Centre, 850 W. Front St. 208-350-6435, shineforcamp.org.
Follow a few rules and Art in the Park—the annual au-naturel Boise Art Museum festival that packs Julia Davis Park—will rule. No. 1: No public parking anywhere near the park. The best way to get to the event is to park in a downtown Boise garage ($5 all day) or even at the Boise Towne Square Mall and take a free shuttle to and from the park. No. 2: For the love of all that’s holy, leave your dog at home. No one wants a portrait of pet poo or pottery with pee. No. 3: Take an empty stomach. More than 40 beverage and food vendors—slinging everything from barbecue to gyros—will be parked near the art. No. 4: Take your checkbook (or credit card or cash). The deals might be steals at the 62nd BAM Art in the Park. Sept. 9 -10: 10 a.m.–5 p.m., Sept. 11: 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Julia Davis Park, 700 S. Capitol Blvd., 208-345-8330, boiseartmuseum. org/art-in-the-park.

DRIVE ELECTRIC WEEK CAR SHOW The concept of the electric vehicle dates as far back as the 1880s, and there were as many as 30,000 battery-powered vehicles operating, primarily in Europe, at the turn of the 20th century—about as many electric cars sold worldwide in 2011. But it wasn’t until Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan, Tesla, Toyota and Volkswagen began mass-marketing battery-powered autos, that we began seeing more EV’s in our neighbors’ driveways. On Sunday, Sept. 11, hundreds of Idaho EV drivers are expected to park their clean-air vehicles in the parking lot of Idaho Power headquarters in downtown Boise. The clean energy showcase, part of the sixth annual National Drive Electric Week, will be the largest EV show in Idaho and will also show off solar installations and electric bicycles. 1-4 p.m., FREE, 1221 W.

GIRLPUKE, SEPT. 9, HIGH NOTE CAFE Girlpuke—sometimes referred to as the most punk punk band in Boise—ﬁres emotion at its audience like a bloody snot rocket: with little aim but plenty of shrapnel. The ramshackle trio relishes in rage, gore and bodily ﬂuids, and there are plenty of stomach turning motifs in its three-song 2015 release I Drink Spit (girlpuke666.bandcamp.com). Lyrics like “I want to drain all your blood” and “your vomit tastes like angel cake” feature in tracks about unrequited love, regular love and hate for a variety of things. Meanwhile, the song “Love Suicide” begins like a long lost cut from The Shaggs. The out-of-tune guitar and breathy vocals that open the track are barely held together by a simple 4-4 beat that sounds like it’s being played with a cinder block and a hatchet. The song does a quick 180, though, and the lullaby is replaced with anger, snarl and snot. You can brush them off as dumb, disgusting or juvenile—and you might be right—but you’d be missing the point. —Jeffrey C. Lowe With Dumb Luck and Deep Creeps, 7p.m., cover by donation.

EISLEY, SEPT. 11, NEUROLUX For those of us riding the rails of midlife, the moniker “family band” might evoke the sugary oft-conservative likes of The Osmonds or The Partridges (but if you immediately thought of Dr. Funke’s 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Band Solution, we should be friends). It’s unfortunate, because many talented musicians wouldn’t be where they are if they hadn’t started out as kids spending hours noodling around or jamming with siblings or cousins—some even carry on into adulthood, like Tyler, Texas-born Eisley. Because most of Eisley’s members share the last name DuPree, it might be easy to write it off as another feel-good family band but, if you’re a fan of rich, addictive, melodic indie-pop/rock, you don’t want to (dis)miss Eisley, whose young members managed to shine— in part because of the DuPree sisters’ sweet haunting vocals—despite the grip of new bands always popping up. The Eisleys might be tight-knit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t join their family of fans. —Amy Atkins With Merriment, 8 p.m., $15. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., 208343-0886, neurolux.com.

ARTS & CULTURE HUNT: A BOISE STORY Local artist Chris Hunt celebrates publication of his graphic series Carver: A Paris Story Z ACH HAGADONE On a wall of Tenth Street Station hangs a piece of ephemera that literally outshines its dim-lit, subterranean surroundings—a framed comics page alive with fire. Look closer and it reveals a solitary man mulling tortured thoughts before a raging bonfire. The inscription at the bottom of the page reads, “For Tenth Street Station: The Official Home of Carver.” Seated a few feet to the right, in a particularly gloomy corner of the barroom, sits Chris Hunt— a pack of American Spirits and a glass of Bulleit Bourbon arrayed on the table before him. The Carver of the page is an avatar of Hunt at the table. The latter created the former as a Hemingway-inspired “gentleman of fortune” tormented by love and war and subject of the multi-part series Carver: A Paris Story, the final installment of which was recently published by Z2 Comics. Now, after more than five years of heartache, toil and a semi-nomadic existence between France, Florida, New York and Boise, the former is in the process of establishing the latter as an up-and-coming graphic artist. Inked in a black-and-white style that is both muscular and elegant, the story is set against the backdrop of a violent 1920s Paris filled with masked anarchists and mysterious plots. Into this dangerous world, deeply damaged World War I hero Francis Carver is called back the City of Light to help an old flame. When he arrives, however, he quickly realizes there is more to the summons—and more blood to spilled because of it—than he could ever imagine. It’s an exotic setup resplendent with Lost Generation literary references, First World War history and enough period touches to reward second and third readings. However, while Carver: A Paris Story is alive with a sweeping sense of place and time, it all started at that table at Tenth Street. “What came to be Carver: A Paris Story was the result of relationships that were built here,” Hunt said, sitting in his customary corner seat— chosen because he “likes to sit in a place where nobody can attack me from the back.” Hunt was half joking, but things do have a way of attacking from behind. Tracing Carver’s evolution, Hunt goes back to 18c SEPTEMBER 7–13, 2016cBOISEweekly
From France to Florida to New York, wherever Chris Hunt goes, there’s a table for him at Tenth Street.
early 2010, when he traveled to France to visit his then-girlfriend—“the real Catherine,” he said, referring to the fictional lost lover who drives much of what transpires in Carver: A Paris Story. In a case of art imitating life, Hunt’s relationship fell apart in Paris. At the time, he was applying for a residency with renowned artist Paul Pope at the Atlantic Center for the Arts in Florida. As part of the process, he drew a 10-page comic, which turned out to be the first time he put the character of hard-charging adventurer Francis Carver on paper—then named Archer (prior to the FX cartoon series) and placed in an homage to Hemingway’s Death in the Tall Grass. “I always loved Hemingway, and my uncle lived in Alaska, so I grew up reading exaggerated adventure stories. … Tall tales told by hunters in a bar somewhere,” Hunt said. Jumping from Paris to Florida, where he forged a connection with Pope that would ultimately place him in New York and see Carver published, then back to Boise, Hunt again found himself in the corner at Tenth Street—this time talking to another former girlfriend, who was telling him of her impending marriage. “Between that experience and this other person, the kind of story I wanted to write was this jaded version of Before Sunrise,” he said. “So I sat down here in the most cliched manner possible and wrote the first draft of Carver: A Paris Story.” Again, things have a way of sneaking up and flipping the script. While Hunt’s first foray into Carver was “a little more sappy,” he said, the story took a darker turn when two of his close friends died in quick succession in 2011. “It ruined me and everybody else,” Hunt said. “I didn’t know what to do. I lost myself. That’s when I really started drinking, to be honest.”
In grieving for both his friends and romantic relationships, Hunt found himself shifting Carver into bleaker territory—away from the star-crossed lover drinking to forget and toward a man shattered by war, fighting to regain a sense of place and self. “What Carver has become and is, it’s definitely about addressing how someone can lose themselves because of pain and how they can associate that with a place,” he said. Hunt doesn’t disagree that his themes present a throughline to Lost Generation writers like Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald—the latter who makes a deeply funny yet unheralded cameo in the series—but it wasn’t intentional that they became so central to Carver. Rather, they were lived experiences that informed what he still regards as an adventure story, not the hard-boiled ’20s noir that some reviewers have labeled it. “This whole thing is predicated on me creating the story I wished people were creating,” Hunt said, noting that he took a lot of chances with obscure references and even foreign languages. “I love the kind of story that makes me have to work for it,” he added. As for the hard work of finding one’s own place, Hunt is still hustling for it. He’ll soon travel with Pope to a comics festival in Bilbao, Spain, where he hopes something sparks creatively— whether it’s a return to the world of Carver or something else. Perhaps as foreshadowing, Hunt acknowledged the scene depicted on the wall at Tenth Street, drawn long before Carver became a reality, was from an unrealized story set in northern Spain. “I think the search for place is more the search for some sort of peace,” he said. “I viewed this as kind of a pilot. This is where the story begins.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM
SCREEN TEN DAYS, TEN NIGHTS, WAY TOO MANY FILMS
BW returns to the Toronto International Film Festival GEORGE PRENTICE Waiting for a good film—a really good one— can be like waiting for a bus. Plenty will pass before the right one comes along. Then there’s the bullet train that is the Toronto International Film Festival and, from the moment I arrive in that great Canadian city, the pace at TIFF is frantic. Nearly 300 feature films are wedged into TIFF’s 10 days of morning, noon and midnight madness. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. The reason is simple: during each festival visit I get to share with Boise Weekly readers the first glimpse of what undoubtedly will be the best films of the year and, nearly always, the big Oscar winners. This year, TIFF host 266 world or North American premieres—more than at any other festival in the world. Below is a list of just a few:
(A Simple Man), starring Amy Adams, Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Sheen. Jackie stars Natalie Portman as Jacqueline Kennedy in the days following the assassination of her husband, U.S. President John F. Kennedy.
THE BEST OF THE FEST
Unless my radar is off, Loving will jump to the top of filmgoers’ must-see lists. It tells the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, whose union in 1958 led to a landmark civil rights decision by the U.S. Supreme Court regarding interracial marriage. Manchester by the Sea stars Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams and Kyle Chandler in the much-anticipated return from writer/director Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me). The early buzz on La La Land, a full-out musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, is that it’s a visual wonder and heading to Oscar’s short list. The Walt Disney Studio strays a bit from its fantasy-driven projects to produce Queen of Katwe, is the true story of a girl who emerges from poverty in the streets of Uganda to become a world-class chess champion. Denial, based on the bestseller History on Trial, tells the riveting true-life drama of a historian going toe-to-toe with notorious Holocaust denier David Irving. Nocturnal Animals is the long-awaited thriller drama from writer/director Tom Ford
The Birth of a Nation, an epic tale of America’s tragic history of slavery, was tagged as the Best Picture Oscar front-runner—until its star, director and co-writer Nate Parker, was revealed to have been a co-defendant in a 1999 trial related to an alleged rape of a Penn State University student. Parker was acquitted, but it was also recently revealed the alleged victim committed suicide in 2012. In addition to its premiere at TIFF, Parker will take questions— his first opportunity to face the press since the controversy boiled over. Elle is controversial from the get-go, beginning with the fact that it’s directed by Paul Verhoeven, the man behind the lens for Basic Instinct, RoboCop and Showgirls. Elle may be his most provocative film yet, telling the story of a rape victim who seeks unorthodox revenge on her assailant. Its premiere at Cannes triggered as many laughs as gasps.
(Clockwise, from top left) Natalie Portman in Jackie, Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt in The Magniﬁcent Seven, Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton in Loving, Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Snowden, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling in La La Land, a pair of characters from animated holiday musical Sing and Amy Adams in Arrival (center).
SOMETHING BIG Blockbusters abound at TIFF, including the world premiere of The Magnificent Seven, starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pratt; Deep-
water Horizon, which stars Mark Wahlberg and Kurt Russell in the big-budget telling of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil rig explosion; Arrival, the sci-fi epic of an American linguist (Amy Adams) called in to communicate with aliens; and Snowden, director Oliver Stone’s much-buzzed biopic about Edward Snowden.
KID FRIENDLY Sing, an animated musical holiday release, will have its world premiere at TIFF; for Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids, the eponymous pop star teamed with Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme to chronicle his world tour; and A Monster Calls is the story of a 12-year-old boy struggling with his mother’s illness with the help of a wild and relentless beast (Liam Neeson).
THINGS THAT GO BUMP TIFF’s Midnight Madness track never fails to thrill. This year’s lineup includes a re-booted Blair Witch film; Free Fire, a bloody gang shoot-’em-up; Raw, which sees something go horribly wrong when a teenager eats meat for the first time; and Rats, a horror documentary about the planet’s harbinger of disease and death. I’ll be sending daily dispatches from all of TIFF’s premieres Thursday, Sept. 8 through Sunday, Sept. 18. Find them at boiseweekly. com.

CITIZEN STEVE ‘RED GREEN’ SMITH Duct tape, favorite relatives and Old Man Sedgwick GEORGE PRENTICE Public television is the home of Austin City Limits, the Crawleys of Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfridge, Mr. Rogers and Curious George. It’s also home to one of the oddest ducks to appear on television: Red Green, Canada’s king of duct tape, bad inventions, and ill-fated hunting and fishing trips. The man behind Red Green, Steve Smith, had been donning plaid and camo for nearly four decades when he first introduced the character in a two-minute sketch on the Canadian TV variety series Smith and Smith, which he hosted with his wife (think a maple syrup-infused Sonny and Cher). After the variety series ended in the mid-1980s, Steve Smith revisited the Red Green character, which led to 15 years worth of programs that enjoyed success on both sides of the border. The show still airs in reruns on PBS stations across the U.S., including Idaho Public Television. In anticipation of his Sunday, Sept. 11 visit, when he’ll bring Red to the stage of Boise’s Egyptian Theatre, we talked to Smith about his iconic character.
Fifteen seasons in television is almost unheard of. At the end of the 13th season, I approached the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and told them I would be turning 60 in a couple of years. I know an exit ramp when I see one. They agreed to give me a two-year contract, which was great because I gave everybody two years notice and planned story arcs for full closure.
I grew up near the U.S./Canada border and watched a lot of Canadian television. I vividly remember some pretty fond memories of Smith and Smith in the ’70s and ’80s. Wow, you’re old. There’s not many of us left. I created Red for that show… a little two-minute bit. I actually fashioned Red after a real-life outdoor show that used to be on Canadian TV. The host would read poems over grainy, 16-millimeter films of him fishing and he would have entire shows where he wouldn’t catch any fish.
Does duct tape follow you everywhere? I sign a lot of duct tape. We probably used 100 rolls of duct tape for each of our episodes. It’s the physical representation of Red. He sort-of fixes things that sort-of work for sort-of a little while.
How did the character of Red Green break out as a stand-alone TV show? When my wife didn’t want to do TV anymore I thought I would pull Red out for a small summer TV show in 1990. And it just took off.
My favorite was his ﬁnal invention. A perpetual motion machine that Red could never get started. That’s so Red.
Do you have a theory as to why Red is so popular in the States? Honestly, I think Red reminds people of a relative that they like. There’s one in every family. If you don’t think there’s somebody like that in your family, it’s probably you. When did you stop taping new episodes? 2005. I retired. We did 200 episodes. 20cSEPTEMBER 7–13, 2016cBOISEweekly
Yet Red Green still runs on PBS stations all across the U.S. 100 percent of our U.S. exposure is PBS. Without public television, Red Green never would have aired in America. Tell us about the Red Green “I’m Not Old, I’m Ripe,” tour. We did 25 cities across North America this past spring and they were really successful. The show is in the form of a meeting at the Possum Lodge, complete with the possum salute and oath.
And Red’s infamous inventions? Well, there was the Cadillac backhoe which is the Cadillac of backhoes or the backhoe of Cadillacs.
How long do you want to keep doing the stage show? I keep a careful eye on the demand from the public. This has already exceeded my wildest dreams. But things still make me laugh. I was talking to Old Man Sedgwick the other day [Sedgwick was an unseen fictional character on the Red Green Show] and he told me that he had just put two hearing aids in his dog’s ears. I asked him if the dog was deaf; and he said, “No but it makes him think twice about barking.” BOISE WEEKLY.COM
BEERGUZZLER AN OKTOBERFEST TRIBUTE Despite the name, Munich’s Oktoberfest begins Saturday, Sept. 17 and runs through Oct. 3. It started in 1810 as a celebration marking the marriage of Kronprinz Ludwig to Princess Therese. The festival beverage of choice is Marzen, a medium-bodied beer traditionally brewed in the spring then stored over the summer. While several German examples are available, I focused on three American tributes: FIRESTONE OAKTOBERFEST, $2.50-$2.90 This orange tinged, amber brew sports the most generous head of the three, showing good retention and leaving a nice lacing. It opens with heady herb aromas followed by sweet malt and a hint of hops. On the drier side, it offers wheat toast ﬂavors with a dollop of honey. Beautifully balanced, the soft malt melds nicely with the smooth hops.

NINKASI OKTOBERFEST, $1.70-$1.90 A slightly hazy, straw colored pour with a thin head, the aromas are a mix of sweet, fruity malt and grain. The palate features silky malt and bright fruit (ripe citrus and cherry) with a touch of honey. For a Marzen, there’s an uncharacteristic hit of hops—especially on the ﬁnish—but, hey, it seems appropriate for a Northwest take on the style. ODELL BREWING OKTOBERFEST, $2-$2.20 A bright amber in the glass, it’s topped by the thinnest of heads. The aromas are a muted mix of cereal grain and herb. You get lots of caramel malt and sweet biscuit on the palate, backed by a bit of citrus tang. A touch of mineral and nut comes through on the creamy ﬁnish. This smooth brew tastes great and, with very light carbonation, it’s less ﬁlling. —David Kirkpatrick BOISE WEEKLY.COM

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY BY ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): Two 7-year-old girls showed me three tricks I could use to avoid taking myself too seriously and getting too attached to my dignity. I’m offering these tricks to you just in time for the letting-go phase of your astrological cycle. Trick No. 1: Speak in a made-up language for at least 10 minutes. Example: “Groftyp hulbnu wivgeeri proot xud amasterulius. Quoshibojor frovid zemplissit.” Trick No. 2: Put a different kind of shoe and sock on each foot and pretend you’re two people stuck in a single body. Give each side of you a unique nickname. Trick No. 3: Place an unopened bag of barbecue-flavored potato chips on a table, then bash your fist down on it, detonating a loud popping sound and unleashing a spray of crumbs out the ends of the bag. Don’t clean up the mess for at least an hour. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): In accordance with the astrological omens, I suggest you spend less energy dwelling in profane time so you expand your relationship with sacred time. If that’s of interest to you, consider the following definitions. PROFANE TIME happens when you’re engulfed in the daily grind. Swarmed by a relentless flurry of immediate concerns, you are held hostage by the chatter of your monkey mind. Being in SACRED TIME attunes you to the relaxing hum of eternity. It enables you to
be in intimate contact with your soul’s deeper agenda, and affords you extra power to transform yourself in harmony with your noble desires and beautiful intentions. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): About 1.7 million years ago, our human ancestors began using primitive hand axes made from rocks. This technology remained in use for more than 60,000 generations before anyone invented more sophisticated tools and implements. Science writer Marcus Chown refers to this period as “the million years of boredom.” Its slow pace contrasts sharply with technology’s brisk evolution in the last 140 years. In 1880, there were no cars, planes, electric lights, telephones, TVs or Internet. I surmise that you’re leaving your own phase of relatively slow progress, Gemini. In the coming months, I expect your transformations will progress with increasing speed—starting soon. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Prediction No. 1: You will attract truckloads of good luck by working to upgrade and refine the way you communicate. Prediction No. 2: You will tickle the attention of interesting people who could ultimately provide you with clues you will need to thrive in 2017. Prediction No. 3: You will discover secrets of how to articulate complicated feelings and subtle ideas that have been locked inside you. Prediction No. 4:
24cSEPTEMBER 7–13, 2016 cBOISEweekly
You’ll begin a vibrant conversation that will continue to evolve for a long time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You know you have a second brain in your gut, right? (If not, read this: http://bit.ly/secondbrain.) During the past three weeks, I have been beaming telepathic instructions toward this smart part of you. Here’s an edited version of the message I’ve been sending: “Cultivate your tenacity, darling. Build up your stamina, sweetheart. Feed your ability to follow through on what you’ve started, beautiful. Be persistent and spunky and gritty, my dear.” Alas, I’m not sure my psychic broadcasts have been as effective as I’d hoped. I think you need further encouragement. So please summon more fortitude and staying power, you gutsy stalwart. Be staunch and dogged and resolute, you stouthearted powerhouse. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Is “Big Bang” the best term we can come up with to reference the beginning of the universe? It sounds violent and messy—like a random, accidental splatter. I would much prefer a term that suggests sublime elegance and playful power—language that would capture the awe and reverence I feel as I contemplate the sacred mystery we are privileged to inhabit. What if we used a different name for the birth of creation, like the
“Primal Billow” or the “Blooming Ha Ha” or the “Majestic Bouquet”? By the way, I recommend that you consider those last three terms as being suitable titles for your own personal life story in the coming weeks. A great awakening and activation are imminent. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The last few weeks have been fraught with rich plot twists, naked dates with destiny and fertile turning points. I expect there will be further intrigue in the near future. A fierce and tender decision at a crossroads? The unexpected arrival of a hot link to the future? A karmic debt that’s canceled or forgiven? In light of the likelihood that the sweet-and-sour, confusing-andrevelatory drama will continue, I encourage you to keep your levels of relaxed intensity turned up high. More than I’ve seen in a long time, you have the magic and the opportunity to transform what needs to be transformed. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In the coming days, you will have more than your usual access to help and guidance. Divine interventions are possible. Special dispensations and charmed coincidences, too. If you don’t believe in fairy dust, magic beans, and lucky potions, maybe you should set that prejudice aside for a while. Subtle miracles are more likely to bestow their gifts if your reasonable theo-
ries don’t get in the way. Here’s an additional tip: Don’t get greedy. Use the openings you’re offered with humility and gratitude. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When my daughter Zoe was growing up, I wanted her to be familiar with the origins of ordinary stuff that she benefited from. That’s why I took her to small farms where she could observe the growth and harvest of organic food crops. We visited manufacturing facilities where cars, furniture, toys, and kitchen sinks were built. She saw bootmakers creating boots and professional musicians producing songs in recording studios. And much more. I would love it if you would give yourself comparable experiences in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. It’s an excellent time to commune with the sources of things that nurture you and make your life better. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Unless you were brought up by a herd of feral donkeys, the coming weeks will be an excellent time to embark on your second childhood. Unless you’re allergic to new ideas, the foreseeable future will bring you strokes of curious luck that inspire you to change and change and change your mind. And unless you are addicted to your same old stale comforts, life will offer you chances to explore frontiers that could expose you to thrilling new comforts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): These days, my dear, your eccentric beauty is even more unkempt than usual. I like it. It entertains and charms me. And as for your idiosyncratic intelligence: That, too, is messier and cuter and even more interesting than ever before. I’m inclined to encourage you to milk this unruly streak for all its potential. Maybe it will provoke you to experiment in situations where you’ve been too accepting of the stagnant status quo. And perhaps it will embolden you to look for love and money in more of the right places. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I’m giving you an ultimatum, Pisces: Within the next 144 hours, I demand that you become at least 33 percent happier. Fifty percent would be even better. Somehow you’ve got to figure out what you can do to enhance your sense of well-being and increase your enjoyment of life. I’m sort of joking, but on the other hand I’m completely serious. From my perspective, it’s essential that you feel really good in the coming days. Abundant pleasure is not merely a luxury, but rather a necessity. Do you have any ideas about how to make this happen? Start here: No. 1. Identify your four most delightful memories, and re-enact them in your imagination. No. 2. Go see the people whose influences most thoroughly animate your self-love.

MINERVA’S BREAKDOWN $GYLFHIRUWKRVH RQWKHYHUJH TITLE OF THE COLUMN THIS WEEK
DEAR MINERVA, I’m not sure what to do with friends on Facebook. More speciﬁcally, friends on Facebook who have died. I struggle with whether or not I can delete them from my friends list. Is it socially acceptable? Would I be a terrible person for doing so? What would Minerva do? Sincerely, —Dearly Departed
DEARLY DEPARTED, That is a tricky question when you start to take into consideration how it could be perceived by others and I, too, have dealt with this conundrum. A few years back a sweet friend of mine died. We had grown very close over time and our relationship was sometimes one of romantic interest. We cared about one another. His death was sudden and shocking. Because of that, there were certain friends on Facebook who wallowed in their grief, posting frequently and tagging this deceased young man in their posts. This constantly brought him to the top of my news feed. I found this a hindrance to my grief process. Because of that I made the decision to screenshot our correspondence, save important pictures and unfriend him on Facebook, but not unfriend him in my heart. Grief is different for everyone and it’s personal. How we grieve as individuals is no one’s business and, in my opinion, above reproach. Do what is right for yourself and your life. It doesn’t mean you don’t care or don’t love them. It just means you are trying to heal. No one can fault you for that. 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.
FIND WRITINGS FROM ANCIENT EGYPT It can be easy to think of the ancient Egyptians as great builders of monuments and leave it at that, but they were also some of history’s most proliﬁc writers. On nearly every surface of their famous structures the Egyptians told stories, made declarations or issued prayers. However, the hieroglyphic style employed by these millennia-old scribes makes it indecipherable to all but a few readers. $10-$15, penguin.co.uk If you want to read like an Egyptian, pick up a copy of the aptly titled Writings from Ancient Egypt, compiled and translated into English by Cambridge scholar Toby Wilkinson. Published by Penguin and set for a January 2017 release in the United States, the book represents the ﬁrst time non-academics will have the chance to, as Wilkinson told the Guardian, peer into ancient Egypt’s “life of the mind, as expressed in the written word.” Among the stories is “The Tale of the Shipwrecked Sailor,” which involves a mariner washed ashore on a magical island ruled by a giant golden snake, but the book also includes other writings, such as letters from a farmer named Heqanakht and journalism of a sort, which recounts a storm that destroyed structures and crops.
