EDITOR’S NOTE FEAR FULL
Six months ago on this day, I was sitting on a beach in St. Croix, one of the U.S. Virgin Islands, celebrating my 10th wedding anniversary. It was a steady 82 degrees with a slight breeze, and I was sipping a cold Presidente beer. Boats were bumping lightly in the harbor and that electric blue Caribbean Sea was running gently against the sand in front of my cabana. All was well. Too well. Six months later, the world is a much different place. It’s angrier and uglier, and you can bet it will only get more so in the next six months. In St. Croix, back in the first week of August 2016, the town of Christiansted was papered with “Hillary Clinton for President” posters. The Crucians were having their own local elections but because of the USVI’s status as a U.S. territory, only the ex-pats could cast ballots for president. Still, the feeling was heavily Democratic and celebratory amid the waning of President Barack Obama’s two-term administration. I don’t know what the mood is on St. Croix these days, but Stacey Plaskett, a USVI delegate to the U.S. Congress, wrote in the St. Croix Source shortly after the election that the outcome was “difficult for many people to comprehend,” noting fear in the 76 percent Afro-Cuban population that President Donald Trump’s “populist movement and nationalist-identity politics” would spur his base to “engage in a ‘post-Obama’ backlash similar to the post-Reconstruction era of American history.” Considering the centuries-old legacy of slavery, racism, colonialism and disenfranchisement on the U.S. Virgin Islands, I imagine those fears are palpable. Likewise with others living in the mainland U.S., whose experiences have been marked by institutional marginalization, bigotry and economic disadvantage. Far from the deceptively calm beaches of St. Croix, immigrants and refugees in the Treasure Valley are navigating their fears as Trump’s policies threaten to fracture their families with sweeping deportation and detention rules. Boise Weekly staff writer Harrison Berry took an in-depth look at how some local organizations and industry groups are approaching Trump’s hardline approach to foreign-born residents.

OPINION NOT MY VALUES
Perspectives change after a month in a refugee camp MEGAN PAINTER The words “not my country” will never cross my lips. I have traveled the world and seen immeasurable suffering first hand. Every time I have returned from such travels, I have been overwhelmed with how lucky I am to be a citizen of the United States of America. I am so appreciative and thankful for things others take so much for granted. Toilets, water from a tap, washing machines, refrigeration, reliable electricity; but, primarily, the safety and security that my country affords me. I love my country. Burn my flag and you burn a hole in my heart. The words “not my president” will also never cross my lips. I value our democracy and free and open elections. So many have fought for fair and open elections, and I respect those valiant efforts. Our elections are an anomaly. Most countries around the globe do not have elections without fear of persecution or violence. Many countries’ elections are riddled with corruption and unrest. I will respect a free, open election even if the candidate I voted for isn’t elected, as was the case in this most recent election. I was raised in a remote town in eastern Montana with a population of less than 5,000. This town was three hours from an airport or a shopping mall. There is not a single mosque or Islamic prayer center within a 10-hour drive. Ninety-four percent of the population is Caucasian, which is 20 percent higher than the national average. Fifty-eight percent of the population affiliates as Catholic or Protestant, with only 4 percent stating “other” as a religion. If there is anyone with an excuse to be narrow-minded or sheltered to international politics, I believe it would be me. I have only ever held residence in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. I am a Caucasian female, aged 30, affiliated as a non-denominational Christian. I am an emergency room nurse. Very rarely do I spend a day at work in which my actions do not intervene in a way that saves another person’s life, even if that person treats me poorly or disrespectfully in the process. I spent November working as a nurse in a refugee camp in Greece. I was terrified and overwhelmed when I left Boise. I knew I would be working with predominantly Muslim refugees displaced by conflicts in the Middle East. I felt awkward and uncomfortable, my family and friends worried about my safety. I vowed to open my mind and focus on something familiar: working hard. No heroics or patting myself on the back as a do-gooder, just good old fashioned “do more than is asked of you.” I was wrong. I played basketball and trash talked an Iraqi man in his 50s while we body-checked and B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
fouled each other to no end. Apparently, no matter where you’re from or what customs you have, no man likes to lose to a trash-talking girl. Sweaty and out-of-breath hugs, back slapping and smiles were shared by all. I rode shotgun with a 22-year-old hijab-clad Muslim woman while we both cursed in-car navigation systems as we tried to find a local hospital where one of our critical patients had been transported. We listened to her choice of music on the way and I realized some of the same artists she prefers make up an entire playlist I listen to while snowboarding. We chatted about relationships, marriage, careers and goals like I chat with my girlfriends in the States. Nearly every day I did pull-ups and wall sits with two Syrian teenage boys from Damascus. They had fled Syria because their mother, a French teacher, and their father, an engineer were academics and valued education. When one of their sons graduated high school, he was going to be forced into fighting and they fled so he could become an optometrist rather than a soldier. I helped to teach them how to use an AED, CPR and first aid. I also helped teach them the finer points of American education: English slang and profanity, ’80s hip-hop and resume writing. We Facetime still and they call me their “sister from another mister.” I could sit here and write all day about my experiences and how my expectations were absolutely wrong about these people, their religion and their customs. The words that will cross my lips right now are “not my values.” I will not stand by silent as we make mass generalizations about such a large group of people. I will not support sweeping political policies that alienate human beings based on religion, race, stereotypes and labels. I will not listen to the fear mongering that refugees are “terrorists who haven’t been vetted.” Eight federal agencies are involved in the current vetting of refugees that make it to the U.S. Six security databases are utilized and five background checks, as well as four biometric checks, are logged and performed to ensure our safety. This process at minimum usually takes 18 months and can take up to two years. Our government knows more about these refugees than it will ever know about me as a natural-born citizen. This is not a political issue, this is a human rights issue. Basic. Human. Rights. We owe it to these people to open our minds, educate ourselves to the facts, and speak forcefully and with conviction against violations of basic human rights. We also owe it to ourselves and to our country.

EFFORT TO QUASH ELECTIONEERING ON SCHOOL BONDS MOVING FORWARD AT IDAHO STATEHOUSE
6 | MARCH 1–7, 2017 | BOISEweekly
H N JO
In spite of stiff opposition from the Ada County clerk’s office, school boards throughout Idaho and the ACLU, the Idaho House State Affairs Committee has moved forward with a bill that would impose new restrictions on what it called “governmental interference” in school bond and levy elections. “It’s very apparent that there’s a problem. You have a stack of examples in front of you,” said bill sponsor Rep. Jason Monks (R-Nampa), pointing to flyers and mailers promoting past and upcoming bond elections. “Look at this one. It’s a packet handed out to school children to take home. It talks about when the election is or what’s on the ballot. No problem. But to include an application for an absentee ballot or why the school needs the bond? That doesn’t seem appropriate.” Monks said his proposal would restrict the use of public resources to advocate for a bond or levy, unless the same resources were available to any member of the public opposing the measure. The debate in front of the State Affairs Committee stretched into two full mornings of public testimony, including from Ada County Clerk Chris Rich, who questioned the bill’s ambiguity; Idaho School Board Association Executive Director Karen Echeverria, who argued the legislation “conflicted with existing law”; and ACLU-Idaho Policy Director Kathy Griesmyer, who said the bill “raises constitutional concerns and restriction of free speech.” Fred Birnbaum, vice president of the Idaho Freedom Foundation, argued in favor of the bill, saying a recent College of Western Idaho marketing campaign prior to a CWI bond measure, was “fundamentally unfair, taking money out of taxpayers’ pockets,” to push for a “yes” vote. Ultimately, the committee voted to send HB 189 to general orders for some tweaking, but agreed that the measure should head to the full House for its consideration.
The ACLU-Idaho activist training session attracted almost 50 people—too many for the Minority Caucus Room on the fourth floor of the Idaho State Capitol Building. An announcement relocating the Feb. 20 session was made, and the crowd migrated en masse to EW240 in the basement, which minutes before had been an overflow room where many of the future activists heard Rep. Greg Chaney (R-Caldwell) introduce the latest version of his anti-sanctuary cities bill. “His system, his beliefs, don’t belong here,” Rep. Paulette Jordan (D-Plummer) told the group. Jordan sits on the House State Affairs Committee where Chaney’s bill, HB 198, was introduced, and mounted a vocal opposition to its being granted a hearing. Her audience of concerned citizens had come to the Statehouse to learn the ropes of opposing Chaney’s bill—part of a growing resistance to the brisk pace of Republican-led immigration policy changes. Suspense has been thick around how President Donald Trump would tackle the issue of undocumented immigrants, and now that his enforcement preferences have been outlined, critics are deriding them for splitting
up families, posing serious threats to civil rights and potentially causing serious damage to Idaho’s economy. Trump kicked off his campaign by calling Mexicans criminals, rapists and drug dealers, painting a picture of immigrants from Latin America as sources of criminality and a drain on America’s resources. Since his election, Trump has followed up on his campaign rhetoric with greatly expanded guidelines for identifying, apprehending and deporting undocumented immigrants that have bred uncertainty and fear among immigrants—undocumented and documented alike. The new guidelines constitute a nationwide sweep. They include placing detainer holds on any undocumented person suspected or convicted of a crime and swelling the ranks of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents nationwide from 20,000 to 30,000—a move said to be unworkable, as 60 percent of ICE agent candidates fail to matriculate. The new policies also end the practice of placing people caught entering the U.S. into the immigration system rather than returning them to their countries of origin. Expedited removal, the practice of returning undocumented immigrants to their countries of origin without a judicial hearing if they’re caught within 100 miles of the border and two weeks after crossing it, will be expanded to include the entire nation. According to the ACLU, that could mean someone caught crossing the border years ago but now living anywhere in the country could be picked up by ICE agents at any time without due process. Child immigrants caught near the border will be funneled into the immigration system but their parents could be subject to prosecution. The Trump administration has said it has no plans yet to round up approximately 750,000 Deferred Action for Child Arrivals recipients, known as Dreamers and, according to The New York Times, Trump indicated he will “deal with DACA with heart.” Meanwhile, the Trump administration has said it wishes to train and enlist local law enforcement as de facto immigration enforcement agents. The plan would allow police to target undocumented immigrants with far greater precision than ICE, but when a similar plan was put into place by controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it was criticized for enabling racial profiling. For many Mexican
nationals, confusion over Trump’s orders abounds. Jorge Palomino, communications director for the Mexican Consulate in Boise, said the consulate has been reaching out to the Treasure Valley Latino community fielding questions from people concerned that if they leave the country they may not be able to return, even if they have appropriate documentation. The consulate is providing whatever information it can to the broader community and helping individuals obtain documentation for their Mexican citizenship. “This is new for us,” he said. It doesn’t help that tensions between the U.S. and Mexico have been high. Trump’s campaign promises and the early days of his presidency have contrasted sharply with decades of positive relations between the two countries. He has stood by a promise that Mexico will pay for a border wall, which could cost as much as $40 billion to construct, despite adamant resistance from Mexico City, which has also said it will not accept deportees who are not Mexican citizens. Palomino called the diplomatic situation and its effect on Mexican nationals living in the U.S. a “crisis.” Concerns over Trump’s proposals made January the busiest month in Boise immigration law firm Wilner & O’Reilly’s 13-year history. Managing attorney Jordan Moody said he has “four or five clients” who will “be having to make serious life choices, and will likely be leaving pretty soon.” Others are clients who are shoring up their documentation status, sometimes after years of neglect. “They’ve been eligible to adjust status or become legal permanent residents. They just kind of don’t do it. ... They push it off until it becomes necessary,” Moody said. The new directives are ripe for legal challenges. According to Moody, a number of the new rules “definitely” pose due process and racial profiling concerns that groups like the ACLU and American Immigration Lawyers Association could use to stymie portions of Trump’s orders in the courts. Some, including Moody, have noted that police departments around the country have worked to earn the trust of immigrant communities, and co-opting them into performing immigration enforcement would damage those relationships while adding new burdens to the job. Visas are available for immigrants who are witnesses or otherwise prove valuable to criminal investigations, but the strength of that visa program— which Moody said has had a particular impact on immigrant women—is jeopardized by Trump’s orders: “It takes years for people to understand law enforcement is there to help them. Now, who knows? I wouldn’t be able to tell them, ‘Yeah, call B O ISE WE E KLY.C O M
RYAN J OH NSON
the police,’ because there’s a chance they might deport you.” At Caldwell High School, the political actions poised to shift America’s approach to foreign nationals are already being felt. Ydalia Yado, who works at Caldwell High as an instructional coach and migrant graduate specialist, said the election has produced a wave of anti-immigrant sentiment. “Enough people felt [Trump’s] language and rhetoric were OK, and now it’s OK for others to use that same language and those same tactics,” she said. “[T]he people who chose him sent a message that kind of language and behavior is acceptable.” Yado works with nearly 50 Caldwell High students who come from migrant families, most of them in “mixed-status” families, in which parents or siblings may not all share the same immigration status. Children from mixed-status families face an uphill battle receiving the same educational opportunities as their U.S.-born and other immigrant student counterparts. They face lower high school graduation rates, sometimes attend several schools in a single year and frequently don’t have access to education funding through the Federal Application for Student Aid. Yado’s job is to help these students get the most out of their time at Caldwell High and push them toward higher education post-graduation, but her efforts are complicated by students’ cynicism toward the immigration system and a “fear [of ] not being able to have the same opportunities as their peers.” She has lately noticed an uptick in their disillusionment in the form of black humor: “I’ve heard more jokes, and I feel like they’re coping mechanisms. They’re jokes like, ‘Oh, how many of [us] are going to be deported?’” The political climate has caused students to sort between those who would be unaffected by Trump’s directives and those who wouldn’t, and though Caldwell High administration doesn’t tolerate racism or bullying, there has been an increase in anti-immigrant sentiment both in the school and the community. Boise has become a battleground for immigrants. In January, the City Council unanimously passed its Welcoming City resolution—a reaffirmation that the city seeks to be supportive of all who live here—but shied away from making the City of Trees a sanctuary city that refuses to comply with federal immigration officials asking for information about undocumented immigrants. “This is not a statement of Boise as a sanctuary city,” said Boise City Council member and District 17 Democratic Sen. Maryanne Jordan. “This is more personal. Sometimes you have to B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M
say something because it’s the right thing to say.” There is much debate about how much protection cities can offer undocumented immigrants. Most municipal police departments book inmates at their local county jails, which cross-reference inmate information with national databases searching for outstanding warrants. This common practice puts undocumented immigrant inmates on ICE’s radar, regardless of whether they have been convicted of a crime or violated the stated policies of the city in which they live. Immigration authorities can then issue detainer requests asking county jails to hold people believed to be undocumented immigrants. It’s Ada County Sheriff’s Office policy to honor such requests after a suspect’s charge has cleared, but new directives could put detainees in ICE’s hands before they’ve been granted due process—or told their families they’ve been arrested. “It’s a very inhumane way to carry out enforcement and the people who suffer the most are children,” said Andrade Legal founder Maria Andrade at a panel discussion on immigration law at the University of Idaho College of Law in February. From Jan. 1, 2016 to Jan. 31, Ada County held 89 inmates on detainer requests for ICE. There are no sanctuary cities in Idaho, but Chaney’s bill raises the stakes for city councils that resist the reset of immigration policy coming from the White House. The bill would deny up to half of sales tax revenue to cities that refuse or fail to comply with federal immigration law.
This is not Chaney’s first stab at creating what he called a “proactive prohibition of the sorts of policies that intentionally seek to obstruct Immigration and Customs Enforcement.” A previous version, HB 76, was fiercely opposed by Idaho agricultural groups as an attack on their labor force, which is estimated to be 90-95 percent foreign born. HB 198 is Chaney’s attempt at “splitting the baby”—aimed at easing the concerns of powerful interest groups in his district that would “allow them to remain neutral” to his effort. It didn’t fly. “We would never be supportive of the bill, and we’re reassessing whether we can remain neutral,” said Idaho Dairymen’s Association Executive Director Bob Naerebout, who joined Braden Jensen of the Idaho Farm Bureau and Hyde Park Mennonite Fellowship Pastor Marc Schlegel-Preheim to call for fixes to the guest worker visa program. Naerebout said he has no knowledge of undocumented laborers at his members’ dairies, but it’s likely the percentage of Idaho agricultural and dairy workers who are undocumented immigrants reflects the national average of more than 70 percent. The requested changes to the H2A worker visa program would lengthen the duration of a guest worker’s stay to up to three years, allowing laborers to work non-seasonal agricultural jobs. If adopted, the expanded-stay visas would send a message of stability to employers and employees, but the movement coming from the Idaho Legislature and Washington, D.C. has sent another message. If Chaney’s bill becomes law, and cities and counties are railroaded into compliance with the immigration sweeps proposed by Trump, the result would be the destruction of the Gem State’s agricultural industry, which makes up approximately 20 percent of its total economic output. According to a study by the New American Economy, there are nearly 103,000 immigrants living in Idaho—6.3 percent of the population. Their combined spending power is approximately $1.5 billion and, in 2014, they paid more than $460 million in taxes. Immigrant-owned companies employ 14,616 people. Approximately 42,000 of them are thought to be undocumented. Though, as a whole, foreign-born people have lower education attainment rates than native-born citizens, foreign nationals make up 6.6 percent of the STEM worker population, 10.9 percent of STEM master’s degree candidates and 36.7 percent of STEM Ph.D. students. “If you wave a wand and the labor’s gone, Idaho’s economy collapses,” Naerebout said.

It has been 20 years since the Boise City Department of Arts and History began funneling grants to local artists, organizations and businesses. In that time, almost 400 grants have been given, totaling more than $1.1 million in support—$200,000 in fiscal year 2017 alone. Those numbers have real-world significance. Just in the past fiscal year, Arts and History grants benefited more than 30 recipients, from the Basque Museum, Boise Philharmonic and Boise Rock School, to Global Lounge, the Idaho Horror Film Festival, Opera Idaho and Story Story Night. Public investment in arts is also a winning economic proposition. To date, the city’s art collection is worth $4.2 million, and public art projects in process are valued at $1.2 million. To celebrate 20 years of Arts and History grants, department grant manager Amy Fackler will speak at the Fettuccine Forum, where she will share how the program has developed and outline how the city addresses trends in cultural grant making. 5 p.m., FREE.

Your trail to success can start at Trailhead North.
For hikers, a trailhead marks a starting point. For many local entrepreneurs, the journey also begins at a Trailhead—in this case, a start-up hub on Eighth Street where they can “find resources and explore new technologies” and have “access to the tools and connections they need to build something with impact.” The open floor plan is conducive to collaboration but for something a little more private, now there’s Trailhead North. Across Myrtle from what Trailhead Community Manager Matthew Gilkerson affectionately called “base camp,” Trailhead North has dedicated spaces available. “North is more like office space … with dedicated desks and 24/7 access,” Gilkerson said. Spaces at TN are available on a month-to-month basis, and a membership includes use of all of Trailhead’s amenities—plus a complimentary coffee and snack bar. Join Trailhead, Wells Fargo and Boise Mayor Dave Bieter for a tour, a drink and to celebrate the grand opening of Trailhead North. It just might be the first step on a new path. 5-7:30 p.m., FREE. 404 S. Eighth St., Ste. 204, 208-3445483, facebook.com/trailheadboise.

WRITING FOR TV WITH HEATHER MARION
Heather Marion was a biochemistry student at Concordia University when she fell in love with comedy, and it changed her career trajectory forever. She moved to L.A., started interning, worked for comedians and TV shows, went to grad school at UCLA and was chosen as a writer for the Sundance Institute’s inaugural Episodic Story Lab in 2014. Later, she became a writer’s assistant for Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul—a role that grew into a fullfledged writing gig on the show just in time for Marion to help pen the Season 2 finale. Boise State University Theater Arts Professor Leslie Durham will sit down with Marion on Thursday, March 2 to talk about that career trajectory in the first of a series of presentations aimed at exposing students to young professionals who have found success in creative careers. 7 p.m., FREE.

Oppression and a “pee-for-free” revolution.
URINETOWN: THE MUSICAL
“The oppressed masses huddle in line at the poorest, filthiest urinal in town.” That’s how Wikipedia set the scene for the bladdercentric comedy musical and social satire, Urinetown. The show, which got picked up for Broadway within a year of premiering at the New York Fringe Festival, explores the themes of oppression in a town where citizens must pay a strict tax to go to the bathroom. In a parody of revolution-themed musicals like Les Miserables, an unexpected love affair paves the way for a “pee-for-free” revolt. The show ended up running for three years on Broadway and won two Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Score. See the Boise State Theater Department’s rendition this week. Thursday, March 2-Saturday, March 4, 7:30 p.m.; Sunday, March 5, 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.; $15-$18. Boise State University Special Events Center, 1800 University Drive, 208-426-4636, theatrearts. boisestate.edu/urinetown-the-musical.
“Determination, graciousness and enthusiasm.”
‘INNER STRENGTH: PORTRAITS OF BASQUE IMMIGRANT WOMEN’
Through early April, the Boise State Student Union Gallery will host a photo collection compiled by Peter Oberlindacher titled “Inner Strength: Portraits of Basque Immigrant Women.” The 41 black-and-white environmental portraits are accompanied by excerpts of the women’s life stories, collected by Basque scholar Begona Pecharroman, in which the women reflect on their homeland, political oppression and what it’s like to integrate into a new country. “It’s an incredible sense of self [Basque women] have,” Oberlindacher told the Basque Museum. “Determination, graciousness and enthusiasm for life; also, an incredible amount of energy and pride in their culture. I tried to bring that out in the photos.” Reception: Wednesday, March 8, 5 p.m. Show through Friday, April 7, 7 a.m.-midnight. FREE.

TREEFORT WARM-UP PARTY: COUNTRY LIPS, MARCH 2, RECORD EXCHANGE
Back in the day, Seattle was a rough and rowdy port town filled with raucous Old West characters. Likewise, not so long ago, country music was a freewheeling celebration of hard drinking, hard loving and hard living. Seattle-based Country Lips is a testament to both traditions, with a rollicking, fun-loving approach to the genre, which has too often accumulated a patina of righteous sappiness in recent decades. With Treefort Music Fest almost upon us (March 22-26), organizers are kickstarting the party Thursday, March 2 with a free in-store Record Exchange appearance by Country Lips. Show up at 5:30 p.m. with your 21+ ID and sip some complimentary suds from Payette Brewing Co. Five-day Treefort passes will be available for purchase, as will tickets for Country Lips’ 7 p.m. gig at The Olympic, where the band will be joined by locals Curtis/Sutton and the Scavengers, who have a Saturday, March 25 date with Treefort. —Zach Hagadone

JAKE SHIMABUKURO, MARCH 5, EGYPTIAN THEATRE
The custom four-string Kamaka tenor ukulele played by Jake Shimabukuro measures 17 inches from nut to bridge. That’s somewhere between the length of a fly swatter and the kind of rolling pin used to make ravioli. Within those 17 short inches, however, Shimabukuro is able to operate with style, precision and sheer virtuosity unmatched by uke players—or even most guitarists—anywhere in the world. The Honolulu, Hawaii-based ukulele master has wowed crowds from Japan to England and even Boise, to which he will return with a performance Saturday, March 5 at the Egyptian Theatre. Beyond his near-unbelievable skill, Shimabukuro’s approach to his instrument (and music) is magnetic—“Maybe there is something over the top about it being an instrument of peace,” he told Boise Weekly ahead of a Boise appearance in October 2012. “But it makes people smile.” Damn straight it does, especially in the hands of an artist of unparalleled talent like Shimabukuro. —Zach Hagadone 7 p.m., $30-$35.

3 COURSE ECLECTIC DINNER
This issue is yet another chapter of the seeminglyendless debate about mixing booze and movies in Idaho, so it’s like a sequel. However, it pre-dates the 2016 controversy over serving alcohol at Rrated films and is tied to a 2006 rule prohibiting anyone under the age of 21 from entering a movie theater where booze is sold—making it more of a prequel. “We’re talking about Idaho Administrative Code 11.05.01, section 22,” said Idaho State Police Captain Russ Wheatley, bureau chief of Alcohol Beverage Control, referring to the law passed by the 2006 Idaho Legislature banning movie theaters from selling beer or wine. “At the time, only a handful of movie theaters were grandfathered in, allowing them to continue selling alcohol.” Those theaters are The Flicks in Boise and The Magic Lantern in Ketchum. When the new Village Cinema in The Village at Meridian opened in 2013, developers opted to create an adultsonly section where patrons can order beer, wine and cocktails. Village Cinema also successfully challenged a clause prohibiting any theater that screened more mature content—including The Flicks, Magic Lantern or Village Cinema—from serving alcohol. The clause was nullified by the 2016 Legislature.
Only a handful of Idaho theaters, including The Flicks, The Magic Lantern in Ketchum and Village Cinema in Meridian, are allowed to sidestep a state law that otherwise prohibits the sale of beer or wine in movie theaters.
“The reason the Village can continue selling alcohol is that they have an entirely separate entrance to the adults-only section,” said Wheatley. The lack of a which leaves venues such as The Egyptian Theatre high and quite dry. “We sold beer and wine at Boise Classic Movies for the better part of our first four years,” said Wyatt Werner, the man behind showing oldiesbut-goodies at the downtown Boise theater. “But then, sometime last year, we were told that we could couldn’t sell alcohol.” Destiny McGinley, event coordinator and box office manager at The Egyptian, said it’s not the theater’s rule. It’s the law. “Alcohol is a privilege, not a necessity,” McGinley said. “The theater doesn’t even have an alcohol license. It’s something that is cateredout. As a result, the city of Boise and Alcohol Beverage Control both have to sign off on the permit.” Someone at the city questioning an adultthemed film Boise Classic Movies screened in
2016, contacted ABC and asked about the pending change in the obscenity clause. ABC said there was no problem with the adult nature of the film, but the phone call tipped off the division to Boise Classic Movies conducting alcohol sales—that triggered the new crackdown. “In our entire history, we had zero complaints, and since we stopped selling beer and wine, our attendance has been slowly dropping,” said Werner. “Now, I receive complaints before, during and after our movies from people who can’t buy beer or wine.” As for the immediate future, McGinley said she has meetings with the city of Boise and ABC scheduled in the coming weeks. Werner wonders if the issue shouldn’t be taken back to the Legislature for a new debate. “We’ve got to get people talking about it,” he said. “The Egyptian is primarily an event center and shouldn’t be occasionally lumped into a movie theater category. Alcohol [is sold] during the other events. It’s mind-boggling.”

SCREEN EXTRA MAYBE THEY SHOULD CALL IT I672
Time’s up. As Boise Weekly was hitting the streets Wednesday, March 1, the inaugural monthlong i48 February Challenge was finishing up. It’s the newest addition to the i48 family, which started 14 years ago with a summertime challenge for teams of filmmakers to turn a short film around from start to finish in 48 hours. The first addition came seven years ago with
h48, an October competition that tasks teams to make horror-themed mini movies. This year, i48 organizers debuted the i48 February Challenge, the biggest and most collaborative offspring yet. “This is something we’ve been thinking about for a while,” said i48 Co-Director Josie Pusl. “Now, we’ll have three i48 events, strategically spread across the calendar year.” The i48 February Challenge defies the previous rules as well as the i48 name: To produce a short
film of 10 minutes or less, filmmakers get the entire month of February. It could be dubbed i672, since that’s how many hours they have to complete the challenge. “But that just doesn’t have a ring to it, does it?” Pusl said with a laugh. “Considering [the teams] have a month, the quality should be impressive.” While i48 and h48 competitors are eligible for a long list of awards for acting, composing, writing and producing, the February Challenge
has only two: one for best screenplay and one for best film. Judging takes place throughout March, and all of the films will be screened in a one-time only showcase on Saturday, April 8 at The Flicks. “This particular competition should be interesting in that we’re expecting to see some crosspollination among the teams since we’re encouraging them to collaborate more,” said Pusl. —George Prentice B O ISE WE E KLY.C O M

WINESIPPER TEMPTING TEMPRANILLOS
Native to the Iberian Peninsula, Tempranillo is the grape that put the Rioja region of Spain on the map. It‘s typically blended with other indigenous varieties, like Mazuelo and Graciano. To be designated a Rioja Reserva, the rules require at least one year in oak, two in the bottle, but many wineries go longer (as with two of the favorites). The grape has found a home in the New World. Here are the panel’s top picks: 2014 CASTILLO DE FELICIANA TEMPRANILLO, $17 The Tempranillo grape does well in the Northwest, and this Washington entry stood out in an otherwise all Spanish line-up. The nose has a nice richness, offering candied cherry and berry, colored by hazelnut, vanilla and cedar. The equally rich palate features bright red fruits and an intriguingly different touch of peanut butter. A good buy. 2011 MARQUES DE MURRIETA RESERVA, $26 A Tempranillo dominant blend (89 percent) from the Rioja Alta, this Reserva spent 20 months in American oak. It opens with floral aromas highlighted by cherry blossom, backed by vanilla, berry and anise. A smoothly textured effort, it’s a well-structured wine with creamy cherry and dark plum flavors, with a nice hit of acidity on the long, lingering finish. 2011 RAMON BILBAO RESERVA, $23 Here’s another Tempranillo dominant blend (90 percent), also from the Rioja Alta, and also spending 20 months in oak. The nose is light on fruit, but big on secondary aromas, including cedar, leather, mushroom, mineral and anise. This is an old school, rustic style Rioja, where powerful dark fruit flavors play against bright cranberry with vanilla, leather and tobacco coming along for the ride. —David Kirkpatrick B O ISE WE E KLY.C O M

What’s ‘womb sovereignty’? It’s for the woman with the womb to have absolute power and self governance over the womb. To be sovereign over it means to be literate. You can’t be sovereign if you can’t understand the ecology and geography of the area that you’re governing. It’s a very political statement. To be able to be sovereign, you have to be able to know where your boundaries lie and how to defend them. What are threats to womb sovereignty? Whether it’s through penetration or the dominant paradigm of consumer culture, women are constantly under attack. Hormonal birth control is something people think is a path to liberation, but in reality it’s castration. Our ability to ovulate is on physical and spiritual levels. Women are choosing to suppress ovulation without being educated about what they’re giving up. What do you mean by ovulation on the ‘spiritual level’? Our bodies are not just a metaphor for the cycles of the earth and creativity: They’re part of it. One of the most tangible metaphors I like to share is the four seasons the earth goes through and the four weeks of the menstrual cycle. What’s holistic birth control? Birth should not be controlled. What people are talking about is “ovulation prevention.” Most conventional synthetic birth control controls ovulation. Birth control is a scheduled Caesarian. B OI S E WEEKLY.C O M

On the politics of ‘womb sovereignty’
The harder Samantha Zipporah looked at how women conceived, gestated and gave birth to children, the more troublesome the process looked. For years a worker and volunteer at Planned Parenthood, she came to see modern medicine as impersonal toward women’s bodies, treating them like facets of consumer culture. A Boise native, Zipporah now bounces between the City of Trees and Portland, Ore., teaching “womb sovereignty” classes and the “womb continuum” of ovulation, menstruation, birthing and orgasm. She also delivers holistic health services tailored to individuals. Her practice is philosophy, anthropology, science-backed medicine and spirituality—one she says helps her clients be at home in their bodies even as they experience profound life changes.
Holistic contraception is awareness of your fertility signals.

You describe yourself as an ally for women having abortions. What does that mean? One of the most important things I like to tell women who are avoiding pregnancy or ending pregnancy is to find the “sacred yes.” Our culture focuses on the fear of conception all the time, but being able to identify what it is you’re saying “yes” to and by claiming it balances the “sacred no.” You also talk about having better sex. I think the ultimate key is self awareness and presence. The individual being aware of their own body’s landscape and communicating it. That’s why I’m working with the multiple dimensions of self. For better sex and orgasms, you have to be aware of energetic and physical anatomy. You cannot compartmentalize energy that gets you through your day.

How do you assist in ending a pregnancy? It’s as individual as that person. I will support a woman who is terminating a pregnancy at any point of gestation. Professionally, I provide tools and consultation and education, and postpartum care that acknowledges that they just released a pregnancy—and emotionally and physically, they’re postpartum. The words I like to use are “pregnancy release.”

What made you passionate about this? I was blessed to have a path that was illuminated by flashing neon signs. My mother and sister struggled with health issues around their wombs and menstrual cycles. I was able to observe what they were going through and know intellectually I wanted something different for myself. What have you learned to do this? I’ve had to un-learn job titles in a big way. I thought I wanted to be a midwife for a while, and I thought I wanted to be a doula—and I was a doula for several years—and that container was not built to hold me. It started in Planned Parenthood. I realized what I had been doing there was treating fertility as a pathology. I stopped working at Planned Parenthood. Two years ago, I stopped attending births to focus on people avoiding and ending their pregnancies.

PAGE BREAK MINERVA’S BREAKDOWN Advice for those on the verge “PLAYING POSSUM”
Here’s one for ya: I can be all hot to trot, with everything “working” like it is supposed to. His pants come down, huge penis staring back at me and blam-o, mine plays dead. I’ve decided it’s penis envy. I dunno, but the older I get, the worse my issue is becoming. Oh, and I’ve tried the boner pills to no avail. I’ve pretty much given up on sex. I think my mind has taken over and created a monk. It really sucks! Sincerely, —Playing Possum
Erectile issues are zero fun, and I can tell that despite the attempts at humor, this is a painful issue for you. You say you are suffering from “penis envy,” so I’m gathering it’s a matter of feeling inadequate in size. That’s a difficult insecurity to overcome. I want to remind you that a man is not the size of his equipment but a multitude of facets that come together to create a dynamic person. You can’t help what the size of your penis is, but size really shouldn’t matter. According to a study done by King’s College London, the average penis length for 90 percent of men falls between 4 inches and 6.3 inches when erect. Even if your penis is smaller than that, it doesn’t mean someone won’t be interested or enjoy sexual activity with you. Don’t be afraid to see a doctor about it, either. Sex is a wonderful part of life, and you shouldn’t deny yourself because you assume you’re inadequate. You deserve love and intimacy.

It has also been one of the wettest, with repeated worry and warning about flooding. The smart money is on being $40 prepared, and one of the easiest ways Boise Army-Navy is with an HSF Spill and Flood Pack4924 E. Chinden Blvd., 208-322-0660, age. Manufactured by Fb Systems, boisearmynavy.com the bright orange bag contains six patented FloodBloc bags, each of which will absorb five gallons or 40 pounds of water in fewer than three minutes; and two Rapid Pollution Deterrent barriers, which are similarly designed to soak up and retain fresh water, then be deployed to control spills, leaks or flooding. The package has been reviewed and approved by the federal InterAgency Board and is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. How’s that for peace of mind? —Zach Hagadone

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY BY ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): I predict you will have earned the title of Master Composter no later than March 26. Not necessarily because you will have packed your food scraps, wilted flowers, coffee grounds and shredded newspapers in, say, a deluxe dual-chamber tumbling compost bin. But rather because you will have dealt efficiently with the rotting emotions, tattered habits, decrepit melodramas and trivial nonsense that has accumulated; you will have worked hard to transform all that crap into metaphorical fertilizer for your future growth. Time to get started! TAURUS (April 20-May 20): It’s a good time for you to wield your emotional intelligence with leadership and flair. The people you care about need more of your sensitive influence. Any posse or tribe you’re part of will benefit from your thoughtful intervention. So get out there and build up the group morale, Taurus. Assert your healing ideals with panache. Tamp down the insidious power of peer pressure and fashionable nonsense. You have a mandate to wake up sleepy allies and activate the dormant potential of collective efforts. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you were ever in your life going to be awarded an honorary PhD from a top university, it would happen in the next few weeks. If there were even a remote possibility that

you would someday be given one of those MacArthur Fellowship “genius” grants, now would be the time. Likewise if you had any hopes of being selected as one of “The World’s Sexiest Chameleons” or “The Fastest, Sweetest Talkers on Earth” or “The Planet’s Most Virtuoso Vacillators,” the moment has arrived. And even if none of those things happen, I’m still pretty sure that your reputation and status will be on the rise. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re wandering into places you’ve always thought you should be wary of or skeptical about. Good for you! As long as you protect your innocence, I encourage you to keep exploring. To my delight, you have also been fantasizing about accomplishments that used to be off-limits. Again, I say: Good for you! As long as you don’t overreach, I invite you to dream boldly, even brazenly. Since you seem to be in the mood for big thinking, here are other revolutionary activities to consider: dissolving nonessential wishes; transcending shrunken expectations; escaping the boring past; busting irrelevant taboos. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I did a good job of raising my daughter. She turned out to be a thoughtful, intelligent adult with high integrity and interesting skills. But I’m not sure my parenting would have been as effective if I’d
had more kids. I discussed this issue with Nathan, a guy I know. His six offspring are all grown up, too. “How did you do it?” I asked him. “Having just one child was a challenging job for me.” “I’ll tell you my secret,” Nathan told me. “I’m a bad father. I didn’t work very hard on raising my kids. And now they never let me forget it.” In the coming weeks and months, Leo, I recommend that you pursue my approach in your chosen field, not Nathan’s. Aim for high-quality intensity rather than scattershot quantity. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): In her poem “Not Anyone Who Says,” Virgo writer Mary Oliver looks down on people who declare, “I’m going to be careful and smart in matters of love.” She disparages the passion of anyone who asserts, “I’m going to choose slowly.” Instead she champions those who are “chosen by something invisible and powerful and uncontrollable and beautiful and possibly even unsuitable.” Here’s my response: Her preferred formula sounds glamorous and dramatic and romantic—especially the powerful and beautiful part. But in practice it rarely works out well—maybe just 10 percent of the time—mostly because of the uncontrollable and unsuitable part. And now is not one of those times for you, Virgo. Be careful and smart in matters of love, and choose slowly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The poet Rainer Maria Rilke bemoaned the fact that so many of us “squander our sorrows.” Out of self-pity or lazy self-indulgence, we wallow in memories of experiences that didn’t turn out the way we wished they would have. We paralyze ourselves with repetitions of depleting thoughts. Here’s an alternative to that approach: We could use our sadness and frustrations to transform ourselves. We could treat them as fuel to motivate our escape from what doesn’t work, to inspire our determination to rise above what demoralizes and demeans us. I mention this, Libra, because now is an excellent time to do exactly that. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s time for the Bliss Blitz—a new holiday just for you Scorpios. To celebrate it properly, get as buoyant as you dare; be greedy for euphoria; launch a sacred quest for pleasure. Ah, but here’s the big question: Can you handle this much relief and release? Are you strong enough to open yourself to massive outbreaks of educational delight and natural highs? Some of you may not be prepared. You may prefer to remain ensconced in your protective sheath of cool cynicism. But if you think you can bear the shock of unprecedented exaltation and jubilation, then go ahead and risk it. Experiment with the unruly happiness of the Bliss Blitz.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): In his book The Horologicon, Mark Forsyth gathered “obscure but necessary” words that he dug out of old dictionaries. One of his discoveries is a perfect fit for you right now. It’s “snudge,” a verb that means to walk around with a pensive look on your face, appearing to be busy or in the midst of productive activity, when in fact you’re just goofing off. I recommend it for two reasons: 1. It’s important for your mental and physical health that you do a lot of nothing; that you bless yourself with a healing supply of refreshing emptiness. 2. It’s important for your mental and physical health that you do this on the sly as much as possible; that you avoid being judged or criticized for it by others. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): I wish your breakfast cereal came in boxes decorated with Matisse and Picasso paintings. I wish songbirds would greet you each morning with sweet tunes. I wish you’d see that you have more power than you realize. I wish you knew how uniquely beautiful you are. I wish you’d get intoxicated with the small miracles that are happening all around you. I wish that when you made a bold move to improve your life, everyone greeted it with curiosity and excitement. I wish you would let your imagination go halfwild with fantasies during this, the Capricorn wishing season.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “You’re a different human being to everybody you meet,” says novelist Chuck Palahniuk. Now is an excellent time to contemplate the intricacies and implications of that amazing truth—and start taking better advantage of how much freedom it gives you. Say the following statements out loud and see how they feel: 1. “My identity isn’t as narrowly circumscribed as I think it is.” 2. “I know at least 200 people, so there must be at least 200 facets to my character.” 3. “I am too complicated to be completely comprehended by any one person.” 4. “Consistency is overrated.” PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your immediate future is too good to be true. Or at least that’s what you, with your famous self-doubt, might be inclined to believe if I told you the truth about the favorable developments that are in the works. Therefore, I have come up with some fake anxieties to keep your worry reflex engaged so it won’t sabotage the real goodies. Beware of dirty limericks and invisible ladders and upside-down rainbows and psychic bunny rabbits. Be on guard against accountants wearing boxing gloves and clowns singing Broadway show tunes in runaway shopping carts and celebrities telling you classified secrets in your dreams.
