EDITOR’S NOTE WOOLY BULLY According to an Aug. 7 article in The New York Times, a draft of a report on climate change was leaked to the Times and the Washington Post. The report, which was created by “scientists from 13 federal agencies” and has been signed off by the National Academy of Sciences, shows “evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans.” The numbers in the report are startling (you can read the draft online at nytimes.com), but even more astonishing is the reason why the article was leaked: to prevent President Donald Trump from suppressing it. Sigh. We’re only 200 days into Trump’s presidency, and it’s already tough to gin up the outrage this situation merits. I feel like my sense of injustice is lying quietly under a heavy shroud of apprehension and shameful apathy. It reminds me of when I was young and would spend the rare night with my grandmother. She lived alone and didn’t often have overnight guests, so the accommodations were more for appearances than comfort. In the guest bedroom there was a little wooden chair, a dresser my grandmother used for extra clothes and a small bed made up with a beautiful but lightweight bedspread over scratchy, unyielding wool blankets. When I stayed over, I would spend a fitful night alternating between holding still to avoid the itchiness of the wool and shivering under the thin bedspread when I pushed the blankets aside. I was a shy, anxious (and sensitive) kid who rarely spoke above a whisper and didn’t like to make a fuss. It never occurred to me to ask for different covers. Now, as an adult, I’ve found my voice. I don’t mind using it, and I don’t mind being part of a little (or much) ado if it’s to defend my convictions or on behalf of a worthy cause. But, c’mon. When, in spite of scientific evidence, President Trump continues to believe/claim climate change is a myth, and the scientists tasked with gathering said evidence are so worried about what he’ll do with it they leak the information like they’re part of some covert operation, I want to crawl back into bed and wish the madness away. I’d trade the softest linens in the world for my grandmother’s wool blankets if, just once, President Trump would say, “The environment is in trouble. We should do something about it.” —Amy Atkins

King-size bedsheets became protest signs in one West Boise neighborhood.
HOMEGROWN PROTEST RESULTS IN HOMEGROWN COMPROMISE IN WEST BOISE NEIGHBORHOOD A cluster of homemade signs cropped up on 36th Street in late June. Some of them, made from king-size bedsheets, had the words “NO TO 3 LOTS” spray-painted across the linen. One of the larger sheets hung from the boughs of a large tree towering over the backyard of Adrianne Burlile’s northwest Boise home, where she has lived with her husband and two children for eight years. “This all started when we got letters in the mail with layouts of what was going to be done with the newly bought property next to us,” said Burlile. “First, the property was going to be split into three lots, then two lots and then back to three lots—the one bordering us being a ‘ﬂag’ lot.” Named for its shape, the ﬂag lot would have included a long driveway next to a fence bordering the Burliles’ property. The plans also indicated one of three new homes would face directly into their backyard. Burlile said her chief concerns centered around maintaining a safe and private environment for her family, which is why she made the ﬁrst “NO TO 3 LOTS” signs. The Burliles then rallied about a dozen of their neighbors to join the protest. “Safety is a concern for everyone on our street,” said Burlile. “There are several families with young children who play and ride bikes in front of the houses, and we already have a problem with trafﬁc in the neighborhood.” Burlile said her neighbors’ apprehension was due to how the newly-divided lots that developers had proposed might affect the integrity of the area. She described the neighborhood as family friendly, where residents gather to barbecue, and children and dogs play freely. Most of the original properties are located on about a quarter acre of land. Burlile said many worry that skinnier lots and smaller homes might attract renters or homeowners who may not 7 value or maintain properties. “Most of us on the street are 6 | AUGUST 9–15, 2017 | BOISEweekly
Before noon, it’s 95 degrees outside and climbing. Even in the shade of the Boise Connector on Americana Boulevard, there is little escape from the heat.
Hot weather is as much a reminder as the cold that solutions to homelessness in Boise need to be long-term SOPHIA ANGLE TON It was already sweltering outside on a midsummer morning when a dozen people began walking toward a small strip of shaded sidewalk under the Boise Connector. All across the city, air conditioners were running full-tilt, public swimming pools were filling up and the streets were emptying as people headed indoors to escape the sun. That wasn’t an option for 66-year-old Craig [Editor’s note: Boise Weekly agreed not to use the last names of the homeless people we spoke to]. Craig was sitting in the back of an old station wagon parked on Americana Boulevard. He was shirtless and covered in sweat as the temperature continued climbing to what
would be triple digits that day. “It hasn’t killed me yet,” he said. A few feet away, Jeff and Doug, also in their 60s, sat on the sidewalk. Every day they try to stake out a shaded spot and do their best not to get in the way of pedestrians and cyclists. Jeff has been homeless for seven years, about the same amount of time he has been in recovery from methamphetamine addiction. To fight the heat, he had a couple of cans of Mountain Dew, his favorite beverage, within reach. “I’m always drinking,” he said. Doug smiled. He admitted he doesn’t hy-
drate enough and said he isn’t sure how long he has been homeless. Also, Doug has cancer. “I get some help over there,” he said, pointing around the corner to a Terry Reilly Health Services clinic. “But this heat? Well, it doesn’t really help my health.” For people like Craig, Doug and Jeff, summer in Boise can be crueler than winter. “This year, we were really surprised at how quickly some of our people got badly sunburned. It started early this summer and continues,” said Morgan Smith, a social worker at the Interfaith Sanctuary shelter on River Street. “Everyone is really worn out when they come in at the end of the day.

day. Imagine that. He got a connection, after being disconnected for so many years.” According to Richards, another takeaway from Cooper Court is the need to put a greater emphasis on housing-first initiatives. “The shelter system is not the answer,” she said. “There is a huge difference between a shelter and home.” City of Boise officials have looked at examples of initiatives in other regional communities like Salt Lake City and “ WE ARE STILL WORKING,” SAID Seattle. Boise, in partnership with the Idaho Housing and Finance AssociaRICHARDS. “BELIE VE ME, WE HAVE tion, Ada County, and Saint Alphonsus NOT FORGOT TEN.” and St. Luke’s hospitals, has plans to break ground on a 40-unit housing-first initiative later this year.

The next options. exhausted from being in the sun all day.” Plus, the consequences homeless people face can be far greater than sunburn and dehydration. “There are so many risks in summer,” said Interfaith Sanctuary Director Jodi Peterson. “There is going to be dehydration, but there is also going to be heat stroke and even [skin] cancer.” As temperatures continue to rise, so does the number of homeless men, women and children in Boise. “Yes, there are indications that we’re seeing more homeless this year than last year,” said Peterson. “Here at Interfaith Sanctuary, we have been at capacity most nights for several months now.” Not during the day, however. Shortly after dawn each morning, Interfaith closes its doors, sending hundreds of residents outside. Their options for escaping the heat remain few. “There are so many risks in the summer, and there are not a lot of places offered as safe havens during the day for our homeless population,” Peterson added.
“We are behind the times in the way we address homelessness,” said Richards. In summer 2014, Boise Police Department officers began citing a number of homeless people for “camping” under and around the connector bridge. Many of those cited set up campers and tents along a small service street behind Corpus Christi and Interfaith

friends—we hang out and take good care of our homes,” she said. “We 6 want the neighborhood to stay this way.” Rather than resulting in a lawsuit at the Ada County Courthouse or a squabble at Boise City Hall, the protest prompted the new developers to contact the residents, and those in-person communications led to a different layout for the land everyone can agree on. For example, the ﬂag lot will be reworked as a square lot, which will give the Burliles their space and privacy. Meanwhile, ofﬁcials at City Hall said the division of large lots to accommodate higherdensity neighborhoods has become a trend. “I will say this: The cause of much of this is that Boise is really a mature city. Most neighborhoods are mature, and there really isn’t a whole lot of room for new subdivisions in neighborhoods in some parts of the city,” said Mike Journee, spokesperson for the city of Boise. “In some of these older neighborhoods, it has been a focus of the Boise City Council to allow for more density and to do that thoughtfully.” According to Journee, as long as developers go through the proper channels with zoning, design review and permitting—providing the construction doesn’t deviate from building codes— there isn’t really a process of recourse for neighbors who otherwise disagree with new development. Burlile said her neighborhood protest, which forced direct dialogue between residents and the developer, resulted in a compromise and kept the matter out of the courthouse and out of Boise City Hall. That’s good news for city ofﬁcials. “The idea is to develop neighborhoods with the goal of protecting the neighborhood and keeping its character, while at the same time creating a density for positive reasons, making neighborhoods more walkable, provide more housing and other things like that,” said Journee. —A.J.

SCARS ON 45, AUG. 9, GROVE PLAZA Scars on 45 celebrates its 10th birthday this year, although the UK-based alt-rock band still feels like a fairly new voice. Before its popular single “Give Me Something,” which debuted in 2011, Scars on 45 was known mostly as a local band in its English hometown of Bradford, Yorkshire. Its songs, however, occasionally jumped the pond to play on American TV shows like CSI: New York and Grey’s Anatomy, broadening its audience. Now, buoyed by its successful second album Safety in Numbers (2014, Nettwerk), Scars on 45 is house-hopping across America, including an Aug. 9 visit to Boise for Alive After Five. If you’re into acoustic melodies and Fleetwood Mac-esque country ﬂair, don’t miss these soccer players-turned-musicians at the Grove on Wednesday night. —Lex Nelson With Know Reaction. 5 p.m., FREE.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD, AUG. 12, FORD IDAHO CENTER It’s rare that bands formed in high school stick around, much less make it to the bigtime, but hardcore metal group Avenged Sevenfold has been an exception to the rule. Formed in 1999, the band was catapulted to stardom with the release of its third album, City of Evil (2005, Warner Brothers), which broke into the Billboard Top 200—a feat repeated in 2007 with a self-titled release that also scored chart-topping hits in Europe. Firmly established as an international name, the ﬁve-piece California-based band is known for intense guitar riffs, high-energy sound and stadium-rocking live performances. Now on tour to promote The Stage (2016, Capitol Records), Avenged Sevenfold will make a stop in Nampa for an outdoor concert that will bring all of its fans (who call themselves the Deathbat Nation) out of the Treasure Valley woodwork. —Lex Nelson With A Day To Remember and H09909. 6:30 p.m., $45-$50.

TOUR DE FAT 2017 BRINGS BIKES, BEERS AND BANDS TO NEW LOCATION AT OUTLAW FIELD Tour De Fat, the annual bacchanal of beer, bikes and bands, is returning to Boise Saturday, Aug. 12. Put on by New Belgium Brewing Company, the festivus has in years past brought tens of thousands of costumed bike-riders out to occupy Ann Morrison Park like a lowemission Thunderdome. This year, revelers will gather in Outlaw Field at the Idaho Botanical Gardens—and it will cost $25 to get in. Despite the change of venue and introduction of ticket sales, organizers said Tour De Fat 2017 will remain similar to previous years. There will be bands: The headliner this year is Atlanta, Georgia-based country rock band Blackberry Smoke, making Boise the last stop on its western tour before heading east. There will be beer: New Belgium classics like Fat Tire and Euro-style brews like the 1554 Black Lager and currently super-popular sours. There will be beneﬁciaries: Southwest Idaho Mountain Bike Association, Treasure Valley Cycling Alliance and pedal-powerhouse Boise Bicycle Project all stand to gain. Proceeds from Tour De Fat 2016 totaled $63,365. “There are a lot of similarities [between the 2016 and 2017 events]. We still have the same touring ensemble,” said New Belgium Public Relations Director Brian Simpson. That said, Tour De Fat took place in 12 U.S. cities in 2016. This year, 33 cities will host the event as part of a “new vision” designed to expand the reach of the tour, Simpson said. As in Boise, all of those events will be ticketed. The action begins at 4 p.m., so attendees can, in Simpson’s words, “catch that magic hour at sunset” and enjoy a music festival-esque atmosphere. Get tickets at newbelgium.com. Unfazed by the changes, the annual Tour De Fat Bicycle Parade and Rally, which is put on by BBP and TVCA and drew a small army of Boiseans and their freak ﬂags last year, will go on as scheduled, beginning at Ann Morrison Park at 10 a.m. and culminating at the Idaho Statehouse for a demonstration. Suggested slogans on the event Facebook page include: “We value access to our public lands where we ride recreationally,” and, “We want safer streets for Idaho families!” Register for the rally online at boisebicycleproject.org. —Harrison Berry 18 | AUGUST 9–15, 2017 | BOISEweekly

Powerful Slooh.com telescopes will be set up in Stanley to view the Monday, Aug. 21 total solar eclipse.
FROM THE SUN TO STANLEY
Online observatory will stream the solar eclipse from Idaho to all corners of the earth SOPHIA ANGLE TON A welcome sign on the outskirts of Stanley states the official population of the Custer County community is 63. That number will temporarily swell in the coming days from the expected rush of visitors hoping to see the total solar eclipse on Monday, Aug. 21. For millions of people who aren’t along the “path of totality” but still want to see it, one visitor will make that possible. Slooh, a Connecticut-based online observatory company, will set up its base of operations in Stanley, training its powerful telescopes on the sun. Slooh will then beam the images across the globe, in part by sharing them through Reddit, The Weather Channel and the ABC, BBC and CNN networks. “This eclipse is going to be one of those events when people all across the world are going to be watching whether they are able to be there live, watching it in person or watching it on a screen,” said Michelle Meskill, a Slooh spokeswoman. Slooh.com was founded in 2004 with a mission of “connecting humanity through communal exploration of the universe.” Today, the site has more than 80,000 international members. Memberships range from $5 to $25 per month and allow users to book sessions in which they can control state-of-the-art Slooh telescopes located in Chile and the Canary Islands. Additionally, Slooh has a giant mobile observatory that travels around the world for major celestial events. To date, Slooh has streamed previous solar eclipses from its mobile observatory in Indonesia, Kenya and the
Faroe Islands. The Aug. 21 eclipse will be the first time Slooh has set up shop in Idaho. “Stanley is right on the path of totality; it’s going to have a good two minutes of total darkness,” said Meskill. “The weather is also supposed to be really good there. Clear skies [are] important.” On its journey from Connecticut to Idaho, the Slooh mobile observatory will visit planetariums and science centers. On Friday, Aug. 18, Slooh astronomer Paul Cox will deliver a free lecture at the Stanley Museum and will be one of a number of astronomers commenting when Slooh livestreams the eclipse. During the broadcast, which is scheduled to begin when the moon first starts passing across the sun, Slooh will also share live footage from the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch in Stanley and the Elk Creek Campground in the Sawtooth National Forest. The Elk Creek Campground is hosting its own eclipse festival Friday, Aug. 18 through Tuesday, Aug. 22. The event will be free to Slooh members. “We’re going to have yoga and meditation every day, and we’ll have some live music from a reggae blues band on Saturday and Sunday,” said Meskill. “There will be people teaching landscape photography and putting on workshops for photographing the eclipse. It’s going to be a lot of fun.” Slooh is expected to host more than 200 guests at the campground, with visitors coming from as far away as Australia, Thailand and the United Kingdom.
Bob Berman, a veteran astronomer for the Old Farmer’s Almanac and one of the experts who will participate in the Slooh broadcast, said he isn’t at all surprised to hear people are coming from far and wide to Stanley. “A total solar eclipse is so rare. There is nothing else on this earth that compares,” said Berman. “It is sacred. A total solar eclipse is … beyond anything we experience on this earth.” That rare experience is why officials at the Stanley Chamber of Commerce are preparing for an unprecedented number of visitors. “Honestly, we have no idea how many people are coming up to Stanley. It could be 2,000 or it could well be 25,000,” said Ellen Libertine at the Stanley Chamber. Either way, preparations have been underway for months. “We’re trying to think about problems before they come,” said Libertine. “We know we are going to have problems on the roads. We know we are going to have problems with the telephone cell service.” Despite some nervousness about the unknown, Libertine said Stanley citizens are pretty upbeat about the event. “We’re particularly excited Slooh chose to be in Stanley,” she said. “It is an amazing thing that they do, and we never knew anything about them before Slooh contacted us. It made us say, ‘Wow, people all over the world will be watching from here.’” BOISE WEEKLY.COM

The Glass Castle, which is based on the memoir of gossip columnist Jeannette Walls, speaks to the walls we build—and the secrets we hide behind them GEORGE PRENTICE
STARTS FRIDAY, AUG 11th

Glass can be used to make a stunning mosaic or can be dangerous, leaving permanent scars. Jeannette Walls’ life was full of both. In her bestselling 2005 memoir, The Glass Castle, which spent a stunning 261 weeks on The New York Times bestseller list, Walls chronicled her up-until-then hidden past of abuse, poverty and shame and her unlikely climb to become one of the most celebrated gossip columnists in New York City—she wrote for New York Oscar-winner Brie Larson reteams with director Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) to adapt bestseller The Glass magazine and USA Today in the late 1980s Castle for the big screen.

CHOW DOWN(TOWN) What’s new—and newly updated—in the downtown Boise food scene LE X NEL SON
FORT STREET STATION—808 W. FORT ST. With Richard’s Cafe Vicino now comfortably established in the Inn at 500 Capitol, its vacated space across from the Boise Co-op was ripe for a cool new eatery—Fort Street Station fits the bill admirably. Thickly varnished wooden tables, booths upholstered in rich patterned fabrics and black-and-white historical photographs lining the walls give the space an elegant-yet-casual atmosphere and evoke an old-style public house. The menu also has a traditional pub vibe, though with some well-chosen twists. The fish ’n’ chips plate ($11) featured large beer-battered chunks of flaky cod, but the accompanying sweet potato fries were the real standout: light and crispy, they kept their crunch even after a squeeze of lemon and dunk in tartar sauce. In the shrimp and artichoke salad ($14), the bright acidity of banana peppers was a pleasant contrast to the earthier artichokes, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese. With its selection of beer, wine and cocktails, and great quality at a reasonable price, Fort Street Station should be on your shortlist of stops when it’s time to hop off the hungry train.
FRESH HEALTHY CAFE—860 W. BROAD ST. For this healthy haven that opened June 1 in the middle of the downtown restaurant scene, it’s all in the name. Fresh Healthy Cafe serves wraps, paninis, salads, quinoa protein bowls, granola-topped power bowls, smoothies and juices all day from its whimsical BoDo space, which is filled with colorful food-themed artwork and dividing walls made of river rock topped with grass sprouts. The turkey pesto panini ($8.29) featured thin, chewy bread that retained its toasty, crunchy crust despite the gooey mozzarella, tomatoes and fragrant pesto packed inside. The Jolly Green smoothie ($5.79) was a tropical treat, with only a slight vegetal note hinting at the wheatgrass and spinach hidden among its ingredients. Fresh’s menu has options for a myriad of dietary needs, and blenders were constantly whirring, whipping up the franchise’s signature smoothies. Although the turkey panini is worth BOISE WEEKLY.COM

THE STIL–786 W. BROAD ST. As of this writing, The STIL—a.k.a. The Sweetest Things in Life—has more than 90 reviews on Facebook, and all of them give the indoor-outdoor ice creamery five stars. With locally made ice cream; Idaho-inspired flavor combinations; and a selection of boozy adult scoops, beer and wine, The STIL seems to have gathered many of Boise’s favorites in one place. The Bee Happy, a marriage of honey and lavender, is a life-changing ice cream if ever there was one. Its sweet burst of honey notes with lavender lingering on the finish make it an ice cream deserving of the type of discussions usually reserved for wine. On the other end of the spectrum, the brownie batter flavor, Licking the Spoon, takes chocolate to another level. Rich and intense, this cocoa powder-heavy concoction is nirvana for chocoholics (although it might be too strong for milk chocolate lovers). The STIL even offers indulgences for the 21 and older crowd, with its rotating flavors like Purple Rain (raspberry wine sorbet) and options like beer floats and affogatos—an ice cream treat drenched in espresso and, sometimes, liqueur. At $5.75 for a double scoop of ice cream, The STIL isn’t the place to go if you’re penny pinching, but if you’re looking to splurge a little, it sure does hit the sweet spot.
CAPITOL CELLARS–110 S. FIFTH ST. Capitol Cellars has been an almost literal hidden gem since 2015, when it opened in the Belgravia Building space previously occupied by District Coffee House—but this summer, the
restaurant stepped out of its subterranean zone a bit to provide al fresco dining, too. Capitol Cellars now has a patio, which wraps around the corner of the historic building (on Main and Fifth streets) and the elegant indoor decor has been extended outside with wrought iron tables and seating at a gray granite bar facing Fifth Street—perfect for people watching. For lunch, we tried half a prime rib French dip paired with beet salad ($15.43) and the “Ways & Means” ($15), a subtly flavored yet satisfying pasta dish featuring a gouda fondue sauce, garden fresh peas and a crisped pork belly garnish. The prime rib—a Capitol Cellars specialty served six nights a week—was peppery and packed with flavor. The salad was well balanced with meaty beets, a tart vinaigrette and candied walnuts providing a sweet punch. With lunch options ranging in price from $5.43 to $16 and plenty of wine on the menu, Capitol Cellars has you covered for a lavish lunch date or a quick mid-day bite.
BACON—121 N. NINTH ST. Boise’s beloved ode to all things pork, John Berryhill’s brunch-centric restaurant Bacon, will oust upscale eatery Berryhill on Sunday, Aug. 13 to take up permanent residence at 121 N. Ninth Street. Since 2016, the two restaurants have shared the same address, with staff performing a Clark Kent style quick-change every evening to transform Bacon into Berryhill. According to Berryhill himself, Bacon’s casual southern fare has finally won out. After a brief transition, Bacon will serve brunch—including its signature Bacon Shots ($10), a sampler of all five types of bacon on offer—all day long. The new hours will be 7 a.m.-7 p.m. TuesdaySaturday and 7 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. BOISEweekly | AUGUST 9–15, 2017 | 21
CITIZEN JILLIAN KATES AND DAVID ANTHONY SMITH DAVID B. BOGIE
Midsummer Night’s dreamers GEORGE PRENTICE
Mistaken identities, a randy romp in the forest, donkey devotion and a whole lot of fairy dust: It must be A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the fourth production to brighten the amphitheater of the Idaho Shakespeare Festival this season. Midsummer is perhaps the Bard’s most popular comedy, but what sets this ISF production apart is the decision by director Joseph Hanreddy to cast some of the company’s veteran dramatic performers alongside others who Boise audiences are more accustomed to seeing in ISF musicals. A Midsummer Night’s Dream runs Friday, Aug. 4 through Sunday, Sept. 3. Prior to opening night, Boise Weekly caught up with Jillian Kates (who portrays Fairy Queen Titania) and 17-year ISF veteran David Anthony Smith (who plays Nick Bottom, a lowly weaver who is turned into a donkey but nonetheless captures Titania’s heart). Love may be blind, but that has never been truer than with Nick Bottom, who becomes, pardon my English, an ass. Smith: An ass’s head and an ass’s tail and he even takes a peek, let’s say below his belt, to see if the transformation has occurred there, too.
Vineyard Hike SEPTEMBER 3RD 12 P.M. – 3 P.M.
$30 WINE CLUB/ $35 GENERAL
Despite Bottom becoming an ass, a little bit of fairy dust goes a long way for Titania. Kates: Be careful with your dosage. In my case, it goes too far. But what can I say? We’re having a blast. Talk to me a bit about how you conjure up on-stage chemistry. Kates: We were just working on a scene, a post-coital scene between Bottom and Titania. To help create those sexy moments, we actually need help from an intimacy choreographer. Excuse me? Is ‘intimacy choreographer’ an actual line item on a resume? Kates: It is. Smith: It’s a position, so to speak. Kates: We have to go through the movements. It’s like a dance you need to work on with some outside help. It must also help that you’ve worked together before. Smith: I love Jillian’s work. It helps to have mutual respect and admiration. Kates: Oh, stop.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream ranks high in audience familiarity with the script. What distinguishes your production? Kates: For one, you’re going to see some musical theater actors taking on Shakespeare. Audiences may remember you as Eliza in My Fair Lady last summer, and you performed in the 2015 musical, The Secret Garden. Kates: It’s something fun and magical for we singers to bring a musical approach to Shakespeare. A Midsummer Night’s Dream already lends itself to an obvious rhythm, but we’ll also be bringing you a melody that is something new and fresh and pretty wonderful. Speaking of keeping things fresh, how are you holding up in the heat? Smith: Hydration is key. As soon as we’re offstage, we’re heading to the water and cold towels. Kates: We’re like zebras to the pond, soaking it up. I’ve heard nothing but raves from audiences about this season’s productions. Kates: Boise audiences are the best you could ask for. So generous.
Smith: When we compare audiences to our same productions at the Great Lakes Theater in Cleveland, we always say, “In Boise, you’re innocent until you’re proven guilty. In Cleveland, you’re guilty until proven innocent.” The thing for me in Boise is that audiences here are so astute. When they see a classical production, they know their Latin references, their legal references, their biblical references. Speaking of references, I’m impressed that you have a script of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is sitting here next to you. Smith: For instance, right here, they’re talking about Bottom’s relationship with Titania. “Their kinds of understanding are totally different and each one comically dislocates the other. She offers him fairy food, but with the tastes of the ass, he would much rather have hay.” Kate: Hilarious. I love that. The species are trying to connect and intertwine, but... Smith: The audience wants them to stay together, but they’re not really on the same page. She tries her fairy stuff on him and says, “Well, I’ll get you these beautiful nuts.” Kates: But he says, “No, I’d rather have hay.”

PAGE BREAK $GYLFHIRUWKRVH RQWKHYHUJH QUEERLY DEPRESSED DEAR MINERVA, I’m worried. It feels like this country is going backwards in LGBTQIA rights. There is so much going on, even in Chechnya with the slaughter of gay men. It makes one wonder what one can do, especially as just one person. Any advice for this disempowered citizen? Sincerely, Queerly Depressed
DEAR QD, Many people share your feelings of anxiety and helplessness in the world right now. The situation in Chechnya is one that is both frightening and almost unimaginable in 2017. The waters of acceptance and tolerance in our own country and here in Idaho have been choppy as well. I personally have encountered more people willing to ﬂagrantly harass me. I truly believe that while it feels like we’re backsliding, what we are really experiencing is people ﬁnally throwing their “privilege tantrums.” The world is like a big grocery store and these haters aren’t getting the the toy they want, so they throw a ﬁt. The hatred is not new. What feels new is this sort of “renaissance of hatred.” I would encourage you to remember there is great power in continuing to be yourself. Your everyday activism— showing up and being involved unapologetically—does so much. I think we are on the verge of a real breakthrough, and all those people stuck in the Dark Ages will fade away. Hatred is a disease and it dooms people to fates worse than death. They will fade into mediocrity while their ignorance will vouchsafe their irrelevance. Love will prevail.
FIRESIDE MALLOW CO. Whether you’re toasting them solo or building mile-high s’mores, marshmallows are to summertime camping as bears are to the forest. Yet as food trends move toward local, handcrafted, organic fare the marshmallow will likely be left behind... unless Caldwell-based Fireside Mallow Co. has anything to say about it. According to Fireside, there’s a better way to do marshmallows: gourmet, local, handmade, hand cut and small batch. “After a year or so of $8.99 per 12-piece bag trial, error, and experimentAvailable at the Capitol City Public ing with batch after batch Market, Mo’s Frozen Yogurt, H&M of marshmallows we came Meats and Catering, Mailroom N’ up with a recipe we knew More and Bayberries Flowers & Gifts, or order online at ﬁresidemallow.com. was different,” reads the website. That difference is obvious after browsing the online store, where Fireside offers “mallows” in mint chocolate chip, peanut butter-banana, mocha and birthday cake ﬂavors, among others. The meltingly sweet mallow might be here to stay. —Lex Nelson Taken by instagram user travelbug1988.

B OISE W E E KLY
FREE WILL ASTROLOGY BY ROB BREZSNY ARIES (March 21-April 19): I hope you’re making wise use of the surging fertility that has been coursing through you. Maybe you’ve been reinventing a longterm relationship that needed creative tinkering. Perhaps you have been hammering together an innovative business deal or generating new material for your artistic practice. It’s possible you have discovered how to express feelings and ideas that have been half-mute or inaccessible for a long time. If for some weird reason you are not yet having experiences like these, get to work. There’s still time to tap into that fecundity. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano defines “idiot memory” as the kind of remembrances that keep us attached to our old self-images, and trapped by them. “Lively memory,” on the other hand, is a feisty approach to our old stories. It impels us to graduate from who we used to be. “We are the sum of our efforts to change who we are,” writes Galeano. “Identity is no museum piece sitting stock-still in a display case.” Here’s another clue to your current assignment, Taurus, from psychotherapist Dick Olney: “The goal of a good therapist is to help someone wake up from the dream that they are their self-image.”
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Sometimes, Gemini, loving you is a sacred honor for me—equivalent to getting a poem on my birthday from the Dalai Lama. On other occasions, loving you is more like trying to lap up a delicious milkshake that has spilled on the sidewalk, or slow-dancing with a giant robot teddy bear that accidentally knocks me down when it suffers a glitch. I don’t take it personally when I encounter the more challenging sides of you, since you are always an interesting place to visit. But could you maybe show more mercy to the people in your life who are not just visitors? Remind your dear allies of the obvious secret—that you’re composed of several different selves, each of whom craves different thrills. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Liz, my girlfriend when I was young, went to extreme lengths to cultivate her physical attractiveness. “Beauty must suffer,” her mother had told her while growing up, and Liz heeded that advice. To make her long blonde hair as wavy as possible, for example, she wrapped strands of it around six empty metal cans before bed, applied a noxious spray, and then slept all night with a stinky, clanking mass of metal affixed to her head. While you may not do anything so literal, Cancerian, you do sometimes act as if suffering helps keep you strong and attractive—as if feeling hurt is a viable
way to energize your quest for what you want. But if you’d like to transform that approach, the coming weeks will be a good time. Step One: Have a long, compassionate talk with your inner saboteur. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Each of us comes to know the truth in our own way, says astrologer Antero Alli. “For some it is wild and unfettered,” he writes. “For others it is like a cozy domesticated cat, while others find truth through their senses alone.” Whatever your usual style of knowing the truth might be, Leo, I suspect you’ll benefit from trying out a different method in the next two weeks. Here are some possibilities: trusting your most positive feelings; tuning in to the clues and cues your body provides; performing ceremonies in which you request the help of ancestral spirits; slipping into an altered state by laughing nonstop for five minutes. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Would you scoff if I said that you’ll soon be blessed with supernatural assistance? Would you smirk and roll your eyes if I advised you to find clues to your next big move by analyzing your irrational fantasies? Would you tell me to stop spouting nonsense if I hinted that a guardian angel is conspiring to blast a tunnel through the mountain you created out of a molehill? It’s OK if you ignore my predictions, Virgo.
They’ll come true even if you’re a staunch realist who doesn’t believe in woo-woo, juju or mojo.
irritants? Can you call on helpful spirits to ensure your life continues to thrive?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is the season of enlightenment for you. That doesn’t necessarily mean you will achieve an ultimate state of divine grace. It’s not a guarantee you’ll be freestyling in satori, samadhi or nirvana, but one thing is certain: Life will conspire to bring you the excited joy that comes with deep insight into the nature of reality. If you decide to take advantage of the opportunity, please keep in mind these thoughts from designer Elissa Giles: “Enlightenment is not an asexual, dispassionate, head-inthe-clouds, nails-in-the-palms disappearance from the game of life. It’s a volcanic, kick-ass, erotic commitment to love in action, coupled with hard-headed practical grist.”
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The fates have conspired to make it right and proper for you to be influenced by Sagittarian author Mark Twain. There are five specific bits of his wisdom that will serve as benevolent tweaks to your attitude. I hope you will also aspire to express some of his expansive snappiness. Here’s Twain: 1. “You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus.” 2. “Education consists mainly in what we have unlearned.” 3. “It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.” 4. “When in doubt, tell the truth.” 5. “Thunder is good, thunder is impressive; but it is lightning that does the work.”
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some zoos sell the urine of lions and tigers to gardeners who sprinkle it in their gardens. Apparently the stuff scares off wandering house cats that might be tempted to relieve themselves in vegetable patches. I nominate this scenario to be a provocative metaphor for you in the coming weeks. Might you tap into the power of your inner wild animal so as to protect your inner crops? Could you build up your warrior energy so as to prevent run-ins with pesky
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “My grandfather used to tell me that if you stir muddy water it will only get darker,” wrote I. G. Edmonds in his book Trickster Tales. “But if you let the muddy water stand still, the mud will settle and the water will become clearer,” he concluded. I hope this message reaches you in time, Capricorn. I hope you will then resist any temptation you might have to agitate, churn, spill wine into, wash your face in, drink, or splash around in the muddy water.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In 1985, Maurizio Cattelan quit his gig at a mortuary in Padua, Italy, and resolved to make a living as an artist. He started creating furniture, ultimately evolving into a sculptor who specialized in satirical work. In 1999, he produced a piece depicting the Pope being struck by a meteorite, which sold for $886,000 in 2001. If there was ever going to be a time when you could launch your personal version of his story, Aquarius, it would be in the next 10 months. That doesn’t mean you should go barreling ahead with such a radical act of faith, however. Following your bliss rarely leads to instant success. It may take years (16 in Cattelan’s case). Are you willing to accept that? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Tally up your physical aches, psychic bruises and chronic worries. Take inventory of your troubling memories, half-repressed disappointments and existential nausea. Do it, Pisces. Be strong. If you bravely examine and deeply feel the difficult feelings, then the cures for those feelings will magically begin streaming in your direction. You’ll see what you need to do to escape at least some of your suffering. So name your griefs and losses, my dear. Remember your near-misses and total fiascos. As your reward, you’ll be soothed and relieved and forgiven. A great healing will come.
