EDITOR’S NOTE HOT TOPICS It should come as no surprise to see 80- and 90-degree-plus days in the foreseeable future. This spring was one of the most temperate (although also the wettest) in recent memory, making the sudden jump in June a little more jarring than usual, weather-wise. For so many Idaho dwellers—both native and transplanted—the hot dry months of summer and the entertainment and recreation opportunities they bring are one of the best perks of living here. For them, this edition of Boise Weekly has much to offer. On Page 19, Senior Staff Writer Harrison Berry outlines the impossibly fun events that are part of the sixth annual Pedal 4 the People, a celebration of Boise bicycle culture founded by Jimmy Hallyburton, also the founder of Boise Bicycle Project. You don’t have to be a Tour de France trainee to enjoy P4P to the fullest. Speaking of sweet cycling events, we here at Boise Weekly along with our friends at Bikes2Boards have revived one of our favorites: Bars and Stripes. It’s an alleycat-style scavenger hunt kicking off at high noon on Saturday, July 1 from BWHQ (523 Broad St.), in which cyclists of all skill levels set off to parts unknown (participants get a manifest at registration) and complete tasks. Cost to participate is $20 if you pre-register before Saturday, June 24; $25 the day of the race. Registration begins on July 1 at 11 a.m. and it not only gets you in the race, it nets you a free backpack full of good stuff—but space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. You must be 21+ to enter. If you have questions, stop by BWHQ or call 208-344-2055 and ask for Jared. —Amy Atkins

OPINION IMPROVING RELATIONS
Bipartisan council supports lifting Cuba trade embargo REP. MAT ERPELDING ( D -BOISE ) AND REP. LUKE MALEK ( R- COEUR D’ALENE ) The Trump Administration’s plan to roll back policy initiatives between the United States and Cuba is a missed opportunity for the country and a substantive blow to potentially lucrative markets here in Idaho. What you may have missed from the news reporting on this issue is that bipartisan support for improved trade relations with Cuba is alive and well. It is our opinion that together, Idaho Democrats and Republicans can cultivate a healthy economic relationship with Cuba that will prove fruitful for all Idahoans, which is why we are working to advance this critical issue. For context, the United States has restricted trade with Cuba dating back to the Eisenhower Administration, when an arms embargo was implemented. As a result, Cuba began to purchase arms from Russia. Diplomatic tension and the threat of nuclear war escalated into the Kennedy Administration and the embargo was expanded to cover commodities. The sale of agricultural goods for humanitarian efforts highlighted the Trade Sanctions Reform and Export Enhancement Act of 2000, a trade exception that allows for limited exports to Cuba. The opportunities that exist in Cuba for Idaho businesses are significant. Consider the fact that presently, Cuba imports 60-80 percent of its food, a market estimated at $2 billion. That means farmers and suppliers of fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy goods and countless other necessities currently enjoy access to this large and sustainable market. The problem is, virtually none of our American farmers are profiting from that due to the restrictive nature of the current U.S. trade embargo with Cuba. Clearly, if there’s one thing Idahoans know, it’s agriculture. Imagine the possibilities for our state to expand its global reach and serve as a leader in exports of our high-quality goods to the island—again, the market figure is $2 billion. To capture just a slice of that pie would produce strong returns for our state and put more people to work. However, federal government barriers continue to hinder our ability to capitalize. In fact, while Cuban imports have continued to trend upward over the last decade, U.S. exports to Cuba have declined each year since 2009. This is due to several restrictions in the embargo. One requires U.S. businesses to accept only cash when operating in Cuba. Another bars Cuban veterinarians from inspecting meat on our land prior to export, which is a procedure required by their laws. It’s time the U.S. end its outdated trade BOISE WEEKLY.COM
policy on Cuba. The embargo was conceived in an era of great fear and international military posturing. The U.S. approached the brink of war with Cuba during the Bay of Pigs invasion and Cuban Missile Crisis but avoided full-scale conflict. Yet we’ve managed to normalize, to varying degrees, the diplomatic and trade relationships with nations like Vietnam and China—former enemies that now contribute billions of dollars to our country’s economy and tens of millions of dollars to Idaho’s bottom line. We need relations with Cuba, especially in trade, to advance, not regress. We recognize that and so do many other influential Idaho politicians, businesses, religious groups, universities and others who comprise the Idaho State Council to Engage Cuba. This group, a coalition chaired by Governor C.L. “Butch” Otter, is lobbying Congress to lift the trade embargo. Regardless of affiliation, profession or background, we all share the same interest in serving Idahoans as best we can. In this case, we wholeheartedly believe that working with Cuba, rather than shutting them out, is the right thing to do. Agriculture isn’t the only arena in which Idahoans can benefit. The technology and communications sector is able to invest in Cuba today thanks to a policy exception called “Support for the Cuban People.” This exception allows companies to provide Cubans with phones and tablets, as well as internet access, infrastructure and other related services critical to business and communication needs. Imagine the opportunities for Idaho’s blossoming tech sector led by Micron and HP and startups such as Cradlepoint, Kount, Because International and others. Helping to construct a communications grid in a developing nation is no easy task, but Idaho tech companies and professionals possess the knowledge, experience and solutions to get the job done. Doing what’s right for each other is what Idahoans do, and doing what’s right for Idaho is what we and the coalition aim to do. Together, we can continue to position our state as a leader in the evolving global economy. Rep. Mat Erpelding (D-Boise) is the Democratic Minority Leader in the Idaho House of Representatives and is currently serving his third term from District 19. Rep. Luke Malek (R-Coeur d’Alene) Represents District Four in the Idaho House of Representatives and is currently serving his third term in the Legislature. BOISEweekly | JUNE 21–27, 2017 | 5

This century-old sequoia will be moved to Fort Boise Park.
ST. LUKE’S BEGINS MASSIVE EXPANSION The debate among stakeholders and neighbors has been heated since the Boise City Council gave St. Luke’s the OK in 2015 to begin expanding its downtown Boise footprint The St. Luke’s master plan started to become a reality on June 15 when crews from Texas-based Environmental Design Inc. began digging up a century-old, 98-foottall sequoia on the St. Luke’s campus for transplantation. The project, which will cost $300,000, will see the tree moved to Fort Boise Park during the late night hours of Saturday, June 24. The sequoia removal is a prelude to a far larger aspect of the master plan, which includes building a new children’s medical center, a 375,000-square-foot medical tower, a new parking garage and 100,000 square feet of new ofﬁce space. The hospital also plans to move its main entrance from Bannock Street to First Street. In addition, $5 million worth of changes to roads in a 12-block area around the hospital will begin once the tree is moved. Temporary trafﬁc signals and signs have already begun popping up on First, Fort, Jefferson and State streets, as well as on Avenue B. In early July, crews will shift trafﬁc lanes on Avenue B, Fort and State streets as they begin installing a roundabout at the intersection of Fort and Reserve streets. Road construction will continue through the ﬁrst half of 2018 and will include a second roundabout at the intersection of Third and Fort streets, and Robbins Road. Simultaneously, work on the medical center campus will get underway and will include constructing a cycle track and new sidewalks along Idaho Street, necessitating more tree removal. Ofﬁcials at the City of Boise Community Forestry ofﬁce said many of those trees were unhealthy or unsafe and had already been slated for removal. St. Luke’s planners intend to plant new trees in the area once dust from the construction has settled. —George Prentice

About 1,450 people become U.S. citizens each year at naturalization ceremonies in Boise.
BOISE ‘MADE BETTER’ BY ITS NEWEST CITIZENS ‘It’s the oxygen that breathes life into our community’ SOPHIA ANGLE TON For some, World Refugee Day is like the Fourth of July; others compare it to Christmas or Thanksgiving. For Fidel Nshombo, a delegate to the United Nations Refugee Congress who came to Boise from the war-torn Democratic Republic of the Congo more than 10 years ago, it is more like a second birthday. “The celebration seems to be something that has replaced our own birthday celebrations,” said Nshombo, who helps organize the events. Though World Refugee Day is officially June 20, the Boise celebration was scheduled for June 17 with balloons, music, dancing and plenty of food in the newly-reopened Grove Plaza and an international soccer friendly at Ann Morrison Park between refugees from Bhutan and the Congo. At precisely 11 a.m. on Saturday, a representative of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service office asked 16 adults, who had come to the U.S. from nine nations, to raise their hands. After reciting a 140-word pledge of allegiance, those hands belonged to the citizens of one nation: the United States.
“When you came here today, this was your home. Now, it’s your country,” said Steve Gossett, supervisor at the Boise USCIS office. The new Americans came to Idaho from Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Burma, the Congo, Iraq, Nepal, Russia and the Ukraine. Among them was Esther Mukendi from the Congo, who came to Idaho in 2010. In addition to her new citizenship, she was particularly proud of her new dress, which her sister—who still lives in the Congo—sent especially for the ceremony. “Now I can say I am free. Now I am American,” said Mukendi. “I am AfricanAmerican.” Her journey began in 2004, when she, her husband and their five children fled from their village to a refugee camp in Namibia, where they spent six years before being fully vetted by the U.S. government. “We used to celebrate World Refugee Day in the refugee camps of Namibia, but this is so much more special for me. It’s the end of my program, and I am now a citizen,” said Mukendi. “I am so glad, because it’s a big day for
refugees, but I also see so many other people today, happy for us.” Those “other people” were some of the thousands of visitors to the Capital City Public Market. it’s no accident the World Refugee Day celebration seamlessly integrates into the market.. “We’ve been a part of the Capital City Public Market for several years now. It’s a really great way to meet people where they are,” said Kara Fink, outreach and partnership manager with the Idaho Office for Refugees and another celebration organizer. “We get to reach more people and possibly change more hearts and minds. Plus, we help neighbors meet each other for the first time.” For Mayor Dave Bieter, the celebration helps define Boise. It isn’t just a big day for new citizens, it’s important to a city that, he says, embraces its diversity. “We are a city that is made better by new people,” said Bieter, greeting the celebration. “It’s the oxygen that breathes life into our community.” Moses Muyumbe, originally from the BOISE WEEKLY.COM
Close the Gap: AHCA could increase health care costs for seniors 300 percent.
THE HIDDEN COST OF AHCA TO RURAL IDAHOANS
During the June 17 World Refugee Day celebration in Boise, 16 people became U.S. citizens.
Congo and now an employee at the Boisebased Agency for New Americans, said, “Yes, people get to see the refugees today but more importantly, they get to learn about the refugees’ culture and how they’re contributing to their new community.” While World Refugee Day is traditionally a colorful and optimistic affair, the 2017 celebration was tempered by a difficult year. The current political discourse on refugee issues and President Donald Trump’s proposal to limit refugee admittance to the U.S has stoked anxiety among refugees in and outside the U.S.. “It means a lot to have this event, but it’s even more important this year because of the adversity and the politics that refugees continue to face,” said Muyumbe. “It has been alarming.” Fink agrees the current political climate breeds uncertainty among her clients.
Esther Mukendi’s long journey to Idaho and U.S. citizenship began in 2004 when she, her husband and ﬁve children ﬂed from their Congolese village.
“I think that made this year’s celebration even more significant,” she said. “I think a lot of people around the community feel the same way.” Fink said the concern hasn’t just affected refugees but has also directly affected at least one Treasure Valley organization devoted to assisting refugees. “We have already seen World Relief close its doors in Boise,” said Fink. The Boise office was one of a number of World Relief support centers shuttered when the Maryland-based organization announced it was laying off more than 140 staffers. Offices also closed in Florida, Ohio, Maryland and Tennessee. “America is now less able to help those around the world who need our help the most,” wrote World Relief CEO Tim Breene in a Feb. 16 statement. Breene pointed to
Trump’s executive order to suspend the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program as the reason for the layoffs. Meanwhile Fink said despite any national uncertainty, the Idaho Office for Refugees had no intention of curtailing its services anytime soon. In fact, she said events such as World Refugee Day help bridge the gaps between refugees and their new communities. “We’re hoping events like this will help people feel less threatened, less stressed and more confident in their ability to become U.S. citizens and fully-contributing members of society,” said Fink. And in the face of that uncertainty, refugees themselves said there’s no shortage of optimism. “We’re stronger than that. We’re bigger than that,” said Nshombo. “We always hope that the future will be brighter. Tomorrow will be brighter.”
The World Refugee Day celebration in the Grove Plaza included music, food, dancing and art created on-site.
Anne Nygard a junior at Boise High School started a project, called Running for Refugees, distributing sneakers to those in need.
Much of the recent debate on healthcare reform has zeroed in on the $834 billion slated to be cut from Medicaid if the House-approved American Health Care Act is approved by the Senate. However, AHCA contains another potential landmine that could have an even greater effect on Idahoans: tax credit restructuring. According to a report released by Close the Gap Idaho—a “coalition of healthcare policy experts, nonproﬁt leaders, healthcare providers and other supporters”—if the Affordable Care Act were left standing, the cost to a 60-year-old person from Ada County with an annual income of $30,000 would be $2,480 for the year 2020 (after her ACA tax credit). Under AHCA, it would soar to $10,060—an additional payment of $7,580 and an increase of more than 300 percent. In more rural counties like Cassia or Custer, the disparity would be even greater. The report published by Close the Gap sourced data from a national study conducted by Georgetown University and University of North Carolina, which stressed that although children and seniors in rural areas have beneﬁted from increased insurance coverage, they would be at the highest risk under AHCA. In a Close the Gap press release, Executive Director of the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families Joan Alker was quoted as saying, “Medicaid provides … protection from rising healthcare costs to many children and families living in small towns and rural America. Cuts to Medicaid and other health care programs would take those protections away from many.” Currently, factors like income and geographic area are considered when calculating tax credits, a boon to rural Idahoans with higher premiums because of where they live—residents of rural communities tend to be older and have a greater risk of illness, increased medical costs and less ability to access health insurance through employers. Under AHCA, however, those residents would no longer be given special consideration and assistance would be cut dramatically. For the almost 40 percent of Idaho children dependent on Medicaid or CHIP (exactly 40 percent in Canyon County and 33 percent in Ada County) this could mean no coverage at all. —Lex Nelson BOISEweekly | JUNE 21–27, 2017 | 7

It’s rare that attendees of a dance recital are asked to wear comfortable shoes, but the upcoming performance of Boise dance company Project Flux and its Los Angeles-based partner WHYTEBERG comes with a warning label: guests will be doing a lot of walking. The collaborative dance performance, as occurred, as recalled, was designed in the style of an art installation, and takes place at various locations throughout Boise’s Historic Central District, including Boise Brewing, Peace Valley Dry Goods, Ming Studios, Jordan-Wilcomb Construction and Classic Design. The performance, a spinoff of a past WHYTEBERG project that debuted in L.A., “guides the audience through non-traditional dance spaces to create a series of images and vignettes” forming “an immersive atmosphere where audience members are able to roam.” 8 p.m., $25.

TOO SLIM & THE TAILDRAGGERS, JUNE 21, GROVE The list of accolades earned by Too Slim & The Taildraggers is too long to recount. Sufﬁce to say, the power trio fronted by six-string master Tim “Too Slim” Langford—who left Seattle for Nashville in 2012—has drawn high-proﬁle praise from the likes of Billboard, the Blues Foundation and the Blues Music Awards and, in the Northwest, the Washington, Cascade and Inland Empire blues societies. Blues Review Magazine called them “one of the ﬁnest original blues rock trios performing today.” Langford, bassist Eric Hanson and drummer/vocalist Jeff “Shakey” Fowlkes, have made their mark with a searing, electric blues sound that slithers and strikes as it rocks and rolls. Don’t miss Too Slim & The Taildraggers when they rock old NW stomping grounds at Alive After Five.

JOHN NEMETH, JUNE 24, THE EGYPTIAN THEATRE The City of Trees isn’t known as a hotbed of blues music, which might be part of why award-winning bluesman John Nemeth moved to the San Francisco Bay area and then Memphis, Tenn. Whatever the reason, relocating opened up new avenues and each release has revealed creative growth and Nemeth’s willingness to take risks while staying true to his soulful signature sound. His latest, Feelin’ Freaky (Memphis Grease, May 2017) ﬁnds Nemeth not only releasing an album on his own label, but also blending his classic approach to blues and R&B with a strong funk/jazz/hip-hop/rock/retro vibe resulting in something slightly dreamy and deﬁnitely sexy. Fortunately, a new Nemeth album usually means a tour and a tour usually means a stop in Boise—Nemeth and his backing band the Blue Dreamers play The Egyptian Theatre on Saturday, June 24. Nemeth will also perform at The Record Exchange on Sunday, June 25, so if you haven’t had your Nemeth ﬁx in a while, this is a good time to get your Freaky on. —BW Staff June 24, 7 p.m. $10-$30.

Naomi Karate’s new EP is a one-two punch.
NEW RELEASE FROM NEW TRANSIT SHOWS LOCAL MUSIC LUMINARIES STILL MOVING FORWARD If there are any supergroups in Boise, New Transit is deﬁnitely one of them. With longtime musicians vocalist/”noisemaker” Sean Hatton, drummer Louis McFarland and guitarists Thomas Paul and Bernie Reilly at its core, New Transit’s vibe is both distinctly Americana and quintessentially Idaho, not just in sound but in skill: Talented Boise-based musicians’ have an almost uncanny ability to ﬁnd like-minded artists to collaborate with, and New Transit is no exception. For its third full-length album, New Transit (self-released, June 2017), New Transit worked with local musician/producer Steve Fulton, who contributed from both sides of the soundboard, playing organ/piano/Wurlitzer and keyboards and co-producing the album. On the page, Hatton—the album’s sole songwriter—seems to have lyrically dug down, penning songs heavy with introspection and, at times, melancholy. In “In the Cold Dark Spiral,” he sings of “friends who don’t come around / they send me their pictures and paint up the town. / I pass through them, hoping to drown out all my fears. / I saw myself in the cold dark spiral of the sun setting in your eyes.” It feels a little vulnerable, which the best songs always do. You can hear cuts from the new album on Wednesday, June 21, when New Transit will be joined by locals aka Belle and Kelly Lynae for a release party at The Olympic.The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are only $7 adv., $10 at the door. Visit facebook.com/NewTransitMusic for more on the Boise band. In other new music news, young Weiserbased singer-songwriter Naomi Karate recently released a self-titled six-song demo on her Bandcamp page. The EP is a result of a project Karate called “A Girl and A Guitar,” in which she recorded an original song on her phone every day for a month and posted it. On some of the tracks, Karate plays ukulele, on some it’s guitar and on others she plays piano. On all of them, her breathy, honeyed sweet voice dances across chords as she sings of loss and redemption. Karate is one to watch for.

Strawberry Girls flirt with vocals while revisiting and revising Italian Ghosts CHRIS PARKER The luxury high-rise of rock-and-roll has fallen on hard times in the last 25 years.

Pedal 4 the People is a bespoke celebration of all things bike in Boise
COURTESY JIMMY HALLYBURTON
HARRISON BERRY For some Boiseans, a bicycle is simply a healthful and inexpensive mode of transportation. For others, it’s a way of life. The annual Pedal 4 the People is a celebration of bike culture for casual cyclists, career riders and everyone in between. This year marks the sixth annual P4TP, which has been shortened from from a full week to three days. Yet what it lost in length, it gained in intensity, with more than two dozen individual cycling events scheduled from Friday, June 23, through Sunday, June 25. According to P4TP organizer and Boise Bicycle Project Executive Director Jimmy Hallyburton, the action will be evident to residents and visitors alike. “If you were from out of town, people would say, ‘Something’s going on in Boise today,’” he said. As in years past, P4TP is open-source, and several people created their own events. The marquee events—Bike Prom, the infamous Helladrome and the Finale Bike Parade—each have a $5 cover charge, but purchasing a Spoke Card for $10 provides not only access to all three events but also eligibility for glory and prizes. Mountain bikers, road cyclists, Greenbelt cruisers and even the most occasional rider can find some free-wheeling fun at P4TP. “It’s to get people excited and to get people close together,” Hallyburton said. “These subcultures get to meet and interact.” Below is our short-list of P4TP highlights. Visit pedal4thepeople.org for a full schedule.
FRIDAY, JUNE 23 BIKE PROM
Riding pretty is one of the perks of being a cyclist in Boise, and people in the City of Trees have are great at combining their love of bikes with their unique sensibilities. There isn’t a dress code for Bike Prom, but don’t eschew tuxedos, gowns and corsages; or grass skirts, bike shorts, rhinestone-covered helmets, thigh-high boots, wigs or whatever clothing, costumes and accessories get your flag flying. The party runs 5-9 p.m. at 10 Barrel Brewing Company and includes a photo booth, bike wars (participants should wear pads), music by Lounge on Fire and, of course, plenty of food and beer. Admission is $5 or free with a Spoke Card. BOISE WEEKLY.COM
Six years in, Pedal 4 the People is still cycling strong.
BIKE PROM AFTER PARTY
For everyone left in their saddles after Bike Prom, there’s a party after the party. Immediately following the main event at 10 Barrel, decamp to The Olympic, where DJ Brett Perry will be spinning tracks to keep your wheels turning until 2 a.m. Admission is $5 or free with a Spoke Card, 21 and older only.
martinis “shaken, not stirred.” Admission is free, 21 and older only. For more info, contact Dave Fotsch at firstname.lastname@example.org. HELLADROME VI
The identity of the Thug Unicorn is shrouded in mystery, but one thing is certain: It can be found in the Boise Foothills. Charge up your bike light, cinch your helmet strap and join a cohort of adventurers and late-night explorers from 9 p.m. to 12:45 a.m. at Camel’s Back Park for a free riding scavenger hunt for all ages.
One of the most eagerly anticipated P4TP events of the weekend is Helladrome VI—it’s like a game of Mario Kart on bikes. Dress up as your favorite Mad Max character (bonus points for going as Doof Warrior) and pedal for supremacy in a variety of competitions on the obstacle course/ CX race at Pre Funk Beer Bar. There’s a $10 race fee, helmets are required and some individual Helladrome events are only for riders 21 and older. For more details and a list of races, check out the Pedal 4 the People website. The fun starts at 5 p.m.

RED, WHITE AND BLUE MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDE
BOISE RIDGE ROAD RADONNEE
Join Team RWB and local veterans at 9 a.m. for a mountain bike ride starting at the Military Reserve Archery Range (2098 Mountain Cove Road). Along the way, cool down and perk up with cold-brewed coffee from Cafe Mule. Riders can turn back from there, but more experienced mountain bikers can continue with the crew for a longer ride. The ride is free and open to anyone.
At 45 miles long and with 7,000 feet of vertical climbing, BR3 is by far the most physically demanding P4TP event this year. This eight-hour mountain bike “jaunt” starts at the Boise Co-op at 8:45 a.m. and ends at SunRay Cafe in Hyde Park. In between, grind through the Boise Foothills on gravel roads. The ride is free to join but it’s unsupported, so don’t forget a helmet, plenty of water, some food, sunscreen and an awareness of your limits.
THUG UNICORN SCAVENGER HUNT
SECRET AGENT RIDE
At the i48 film contest this year, Boise Green Bike was a sponsor, and its distinctive steeds made appearances in every novice division entry. The bikeshare program is getting smart again with the Secret Agent Ride, 3-6:45 p.m., in which participants must ride “secret agent” BGB bikes with 00, 86 and 99 serial numbers from bike hub to bike hub. The first rider to hop on every eligible bike goes home with a “fabulous prize,” and win or lose, everyone will end up at a bar that serves
THE FINALE This is the event where P4TP comes full-circle— literally. Dress in your wackiest getup and ride to the Payette Brewing Taproom by 11:45 a.m. The first 13 riders receive Dandy Horse Pedal Pies for the closing parade, which starts at noon and takes you right back where you started for beers. Admission to the parade is $5, or free with a Spoke Card and for kids 12 and under.

BEERGUZZLER DUCK, DUCK GOSE The Grand Teton Grapefruit Gose I reviewed a few weeks back got me jonesing for more. The gose (GOES-uh) style, which originated in Goslar, Germany in the 16th century, is a somewhat sour brew with subtle hops, a characteristic saltiness and often a bit of fruit ﬂavoring included, as is the case with all three featured here. ANDERSON VALLEY BRINEY MELON GOSE, $1.79—$2.29 This gose pours a hazy straw color with a decent egg-white head. The nose is a mix of citrus-laced cotton candy, bread dough and melon. Tart, but not too much so, it has a bit of watermelon on the palate, along with yeasty malt, bright citrus and a soft kick of salt both up front and on the ﬁnish. It’s an approachable introduction to the gose style. ODELL BREWING BROMBEERE BLACKBERRY GOSE, $2.49—$2.99 The thick head on this translucent garnet brew collapses quickly, leaving minimal lacing. Blackberry jam aromas are backed by soft citrus, mineral and sea salt. Sweet blackberry balances sour key lime ﬂavors, with just a bit of saltiness coming through on the mid-palate. This is a light bodied, easy summer sipper. SIERRA NEVADA OTRA VEZ GOSE STYLE ALE, $1.49—$1.89 An explosive, three ﬁnger head with good retention tops this clear straw ale, leaving a lovely lacing as it slowly collapses. It’s brewed with cactus and grapefruit, which you pick up later on the nose. This is a delicious brew, with a well-integrated salty backbone surrounded by smooth citrus ﬂavors. It’s a refreshing summer break from those big IPAs. —David Kirkpatrick

CITIZEN ANNE LEIBOW On building a downtown business, the right kind of smoke and Wi-Fi grilling GEORGE PRENTICE
The Weekend BBQ Store on Sixth Street, directly across from Boise City Hall, is tucked into a tiny space of the Pioneer Building and, true to its name, it is only open Thursday-Sunday. Owner Anne Leibow couldn’t stop long enough for a sit-down interview, but between a steady flow of customers, she spoke about the origins of her store, the limited hours and how all-things barbecue are hot items. You’re from Denmark? I never thought I would move to the states, but I met my husband, an American, in Copenhagen 28 years ago. We first moved to Chicago and then to Boise in 2000. It was our dream to live somewhere near the Rocky Mountains. I adore skiing—I was once a ski guide at a French resort, one of the biggest in the world. FREE SUMMER CONCERT SERIES

Tell me about when you moved to Boise. It was unbelievable: So friendly, so welcoming. We promised ourselves from that moment we would spend the rest of our lives giving back to the community. Speaking of which, I see a big sign promoting the Women’s and Children’s Alliance. Two percent of every sale goes to the WCA. We send them a big check every quarter. Normally, if I wanted to buy a grill, I would go to Costco, Lowe’s or Home Depot. You chose this space in the Pioneer Building. We truly wanted to be downtown. There’s so much going on. So, on Thanksgiving weekend of 2015, we opened our doors. The Downtown Boise Association, Mayor Dave Bieter and our building owner Clay Carley were all instrumental in us getting this space.
Wait a minute… What? You can save a recipe to an app. When you get home, it syncs with your grill. The grill then knows how to warm-up and when to bring the heat down for the perfect use of the flavored smoke. You monitor it from anywhere, especially the kitchen while you’re working on your other dishes. How much is it? About $1,700, and a bigger version is $2,000. It has three tiers for cooking, is double-walled stainless steel, and it knows to force the smoke out in a cooking cycle so only the newest, most beautiful smoke is preparing your entree. Let’s talk about the smoke. We only sell 100 percent hardwood: apple, alder, cherry, hickory, maple, mesquite, oak and pecan. Then there are different blends, specifically for big game or Thanksgiving turkeys. Can I assume you and your husband and daughters are big grillers? We’re always busy, but we always want something coming off the grill, like smoked kale salad or maybe a grilled chicken breast marinated in olive oil. On weekends, it’s a tri-tip, seafood or burgers. You know there’s a cliche that would have us believe it’s only men who are grill-crazy. There’s no reason why women can’t be side-byside or take over the grilling. I tell a lot of women to start with appetizers—smoked salmon, for example—and if you’ve got a garden, you’ve got to be grilling those vegetables.
I’m trying to wrap my head around why you would be open only three days a week. It keeps our overhead cost down and we pass the savings to our customers. And quite frankly, our schedule builds up anticipation for the weekend.
A lot of people prefer gas or charcoal grills. What makes smoke so much better? It’s an entirely different experience. The wood gives a little bit of moisture back to the meat or seafood. It’s an indirect cooking system, so your food doesn’t sit straight on the flame, and the grease drips to a bucket, so you don’t have any backfire.
Your grills are not our grandfathers’ grills. I’ve got my eye on a Traeger… It’s a Traeger Timberline. It connects to your Wi-Fi.
Can I assume you see a lot of business for Father’s Day? Then there’s the Fourth of July. It’s non-stop through the summer. BOISE WEEKLY.COM

DEAR MINERVA, I read your column every week. I had a huge discussion with my father this last weekend about some friends who are in transition. All of them use different pronouns than the one they were assigned, but they were forthcoming with that information, so there was no confusion. However, I couldn’t deﬁne to my dad how you would ask someone, so we got on the discussion of whether it was rude or not to ask a person what pronoun they choose to associate with. Can you give some clarity or guidance? Thanks, Don’t Want to Offend

Among the real ads for ﬁction and nonﬁction titles was a full-page ad for A Woman First: First Woman by Selina Meyer. Wait... Selina Meyer? As in the character portrayed by Julia Louis-Dreyfus on HBO comedy Veep? The ad teases MeyerFund. com, which touts Meyer’s (phony) nonproﬁt organization that supports a hodgepodge of causes including “adult literacy, AIDS, the advancement of global democracy, military family assistance and childhood obesity.” The website is so well crafted, it would be easy to think Meyer a real person if not for a few clues, like the brief adult literacy test: “Can you read this? Yes or No?” Click either one, and you get the following message: “Congratulations! You are literate.” It’s a perfect gag featuring one of the most imperfect ﬁctional politicians ever. Like the ad for A Woman First says: “Because every generation gets the leader they deserve.” —George Prentice A Woman First: First Woman by Selina Meyer doesn’t exist, but if you love Veep, check out MeyerFund.com.
DEAR DON’T, It is wonderful that your dad is trying to be respectful. Our world is ﬁnally recognizing the limitations of traditional terminology leave so many people out of the picture. I think variety is beautiful and since I also feel authenticity is ideal, self-identity needs to be respected and embraced. It is not necessarily rude to ask a person how they identify. After all, it is not what you ask but how you ask it. One approach, if your father feels the situation warrants asking, is to self-identify ﬁrst. It could put the other person at ease if he said something like, “My pronouns are he/him. What are yours?” Most of the time though, people will be forthcoming with their choice of pronouns and will respect questions and attempts at understanding. Treat everyone with concern and respect and you will know you are doing your part to help.

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY BY ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): There are places in the oceans where the sea floor cracks open and spreads apart from volcanic activity. This allows geothermally heated water to vent out from deep inside the earth. Scientists explored such a place in the otherwise frigid waters around Antarctica. They were elated to find a “riot of life” living there, including previously unknown species of crabs, starfish, sea anemones, and barnacles. Judging from the astrological omens, Aries, I suspect you will soon enjoy a metaphorically comparable eruption of warm vitality from the unfathomable depths. Will you welcome and make use of these raw blessings even if they are unfamiliar and odd? TAURUS (April 20-May 20): I’m reporting from the first annual Psychic Olympics in Los Angeles. For the past five days, I’ve competed against the world’s top mind-readers, dice-controllers, spirit whisperers, spoon-benders, angelwrestlers and stock market prognosticators. Thus fa, I have earned a silver medal in the category of channeling the spirits of dead celebrities. (Thanks, Frida Kahlo and Gertrude Stein!) I psychically foresee I will also win a gold medal for most accurate fortune-telling. Here’s the prophecy that I predict will cinch my victory: “People born in the sign of Taurus will soon be at the pinnacle of their ability to get
telepathically aligned with people who have things they want and need.”
make a vigorous first impression when you encounter potential allies in the frontier.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): While reading Virginia Woolf, I found the perfect maxim for you to write on a slip of paper and carry around in your pocket, wallet or underwear: “Let us not take it for granted that life exists more fully in what is commonly thought big than in what is commonly thought small.” In the coming weeks, dear Gemini, I hope you keep this counsel simmering constantly in the back of your mind. It will protect you from the dreaminess and superstition of people around you. It will guarantee you’ll never overlook potent little breakthroughs as you scan the horizon for phantom miracles, and it will help you change what needs to be changed slowly and surely, with minimum disruption.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): I suspect you will soon have an up-close and personal encounter with some form of lightning. To ensure it’s not a literal bolt shooting down out of a thundercloud, please refrain from taking long romantic strolls with yourself during a storm. Also, forgo any temptation you may have to stick your finger in electrical sockets. What I’m envisioning is a type of lightning that will give you a healthy metaphorical jolt. If any of your creative circuits are sluggish, it will jumpstart them. If you need to wake up from a dreamy delusion, the lovable lightning will give you just the right salutary shock.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Now that you’ve mostly paid off one of your debts to the past, you can go window-shopping for the future’s best offers. You’re finally ready to leave behind a power spot you’ve outgrown and launch your quest to discover fresh power spots. So bid farewell to lost causes and ghostly temptations, Cancerian. Slip away from attachments to traditions that longer move you and the deadweight of your original family’s expectations. Soon you’ll be empty and light and free—and ready to
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Signing up to read at the openmic segment of a poetry slam? Buying an outfit that’s a departure from the style you’ve cultivated for years? Getting dance lessons or a past-life reading or instructions on how to hang-glide? Hopping on a jet for a spontaneous getaway to an exotic hotspot? I approve of actions like those, Virgo. In fact, I won’t mind if you at least temporarily abandon at least 30 percent of your inhibitions. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): I don’t know what marketing specialists are predicting about color
trends for the general population, but my astrological analysis has discerned the most evocative colors for you Libras. Electric mud is one. It’s a scintillating mocha hue. Visualize silver-blue sparkles emerging from moist dirt tones— earthy and dynamic! Cybernatural is another special color for you. Picture sheaves of ripe wheat blended with the hue you see when you close your eyes after staring into a computer monitor for hours— organic and glimmering! Your third pigment of power is pastel adrenaline: a mix of dried apricot and the shadowy brightness that flows across your nerve synapses when you’re taking aggressive practical measures to convert your dreams into realities—delicious and dazzling! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Do you ever hide behind a wall of detached cynicism? Do you protect yourself with the armor of jaded coolness? If so, here’s my proposal: In accordance with the astrological omens, I invite you to escape those perverse forms of comfort and safety. Be brave enough to risk feeling the vulnerability of hopeful enthusiasm. Be sufficiently curious to handle the fluttery uncertainty that comes from exploring places you’re not familiar with and trying adventures you’re not totally skilled at.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): “We must unlearn the constellations to see the stars,” writes Jack Gilbert in his poem “Tear It Down.” He adds,”We find out the heart only by dismantling what the heart knows.” I invite you to meditate on these ideas. By my calculations, it’s time to peel away the obvious secrets so you can penetrate to the richer secrets buried beneath. It’s time to dare a world-changing risk that is currently obscured by easy risks. It’s time to find your real life hidden inside the pretend one, to expedite the evolution of the authentic self that’s germinating in the darkness. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): When I was four years old, I loved to use crayons to draw diagrams of the solar system. It seems I was already laying a foundation for my interest in astrology. How about you, Capricorn? I invite you to explore your early formative memories. To aid the process, look at old photos and ask relatives what they remember. My reading of the astrological omens suggests that your past can show you new clues about what you might ultimately become. Potentials that were revealed when you were a wee tyke may be primed to develop more fully. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): I often ride my bike into the hills. The transition from the residential district to open spaces is a nar-
row dirt path surrounded by thick woods on one side and a steep descent on the other. Today as I approached this place, there was a new sign on a post. It read “Do not enter: Active beehive forming in the middle of the path.” Indeed, I could see a swarm hovering around a tree branch that juts down low over the path. How to proceed? I might get stung if I did what I usually do. Instead, I dismounted from my bike and dragged it through the woods so I could join the path on the other side of the bees. Judging from the astrological omens, Aquarius, I suspect you may encounter a comparable interruption along a route you regularly take. Find a detour, even if it’s inconvenient. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): I bet you’ll be extra creative in the coming weeks. Cosmic rhythms are nudging you toward fresh thinking and imaginative innovation, whether they’re applied to your job, your relationships, your daily rhythm or your chosen art form. To take maximum advantage of this provocative luck, seek out stimuli that will activate high-quality brainstorms. I understand the composer Andre Gretry got inspired when he put his feet in ice water. Author Ben Johnson felt energized in the presence of a purring cat and by the aroma of orange peels. I like to hang out with people who are smarter than me. What works for you?
