FROM THE EDITOR At the very moment I was settling in to write this column, I got the sad news: the Professor is gone. Russell Johnson, who played the role of the unbelievably intelligent Roy Hinkley on “Gilligan’s Island” passed away Thursday at the age of 89. The news probably hit me a little harder than it normally would have because I recently started to introduce my 10-year-old daughter to reruns of “Gilligan’s Island.” In fact, just this morning during breakfast — don’t tell her mother — we were watching the episode when Mary Ann hit her head and started to believe that

she was Ginger. (Who needs to argue over the eternal “Ginger or Mary Ann?” question when Mary Ann is both?) Although I’m too young to have watched “Gilligan’s Island” when it was a prime-time show in the mid-’60s, I grew up watching it in syndication seemingly every afternoon. It’s been fun getting reaquainted with it decades later and trying to explain the back stories of all the characters to my daughter (who was hooked from the first time she heard the theme song. And thanks to the Internet, I’ve been able to learn new bits of trivia that I never knew before). So, before today, I already knew that The Professor’s real name on the show was Roy Hinkley (and that the Skipper was actually Jonas Grumby), and that Russell Johnson was nearly 90 years old.

However, I still haven’t been able to figure out why the Skipper and Gilligan had to wear the same clothes day after day, while Ginger, Mary Ann and the Howells had a seemingly endless supply of clothing to choose from. Seriously. The Skipper and Gilligan did own and operate the S.S. Minnow, so wouldn’t they be more likely to have additional attire than guests on a three-hour tour? Sadly, that’s a question that not even the great and learned Professor could apparently answer. And with his passing, the Mary Ann vs. Ginger debate becomes less about which one was more attractive, and more about which actress (75-year-old Dawn Wells or 79-year-old Tina Louise) will be the last castaway left standing.

Gearing up for Sundance

Annual film festival gets underway at Park City

– Associated Press review on the animated movie “Nut Job” (Page 6)

PET OF THE WEEK Available for adoption

The Reel Place Aaron Peck

Once again the world of entertainment will turn its gaze upon a small mountainside town in Utah. This will be my seventh year covering the Sundance Film Festival, and I never seem to tire of it. There’s a kinetic energy up there that’s addicting. Sure, many of the films I see up there won’t make a bunch of money in box offices around the country. That’s not the point, though. The point is discovering new filmmakers and watching films you wouldn’t otherwise watch. Attending Sundance Perhaps you’ve thought that it would be fun to visit the festival, but you can’t quite stomach the ticket prices or the undulating crowds. Well, I wanted to put together a short list of things locals can do to enjoy the festival, too. This year Sundance is doing things a bit different. Say you didn’t get a ticket package in advance, but you’d still like to see a movie or two. You could hop on the website, follow a few basic instructions and join the electronic waitlist for any film. Years past you’ve been required to trek to the theater you want to waitlist, stand in

“The movie’s slogan: ‘No nuts, no glory.’”

She does great with kids and enjoys time with her favorite people. At the shelter, Bella waits diligently for toys to be passed out — this is her favorite part of the day. Additional training would be great for this dog upon arriving into a new home to help her acclimate. Don’t worry, though, Bella with show you how great she is.

all mixed up Groutage honored during USU Arts Week This year’s Arts Week, presented by the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University, features an exhibit by renowned Utah painter and former USU art department chair Harrison Groutage. The exhibit runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. beginning Jan. 13 and continues through Feb. 8 in the Tippetts Exhibit Hall, located in the Chase Fine Arts Center on USU’s Logan campus. The exhibit is free and open to the public. An opening reception will be held at 4 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23.

Arts Week is an opportunity for the college to connect with the community and takes place Jan. 21 to 25 with a variety of college-sponsored activities. The week will also feature an ice sculpture unveiling, networking dinner, gala program, masquerade ball and more, all to celebrate the arts. “Harrison Groutage has become one of the most distinguished and celebrated artists of our emeriti faculty,” says Craig Jessop, dean of the Caine College of the Arts

(CCA). “We are honored to celebrate his life’s work and legacy in this retrospective exhibition as part of our 2014 Arts Week celebration.” Groutage grew up in Cache Valley and would often paint and draw beside his mother as a young boy as she did the same. His father shared with him a passion for penmanship and lettering. He continued to develop his skills and went on to receive a bachelor’s of fine arts from Brigham Young University and a master’s of fine arts from the University

of Utah. Groutage began teaching at Utah State University in 1953, with a career spanning more than 50 years, including summer sessions and workshops at Snow College, Boise State, University of Utah and many others. Students referred to him as “Grout,” and he was widely popular due to his facile mind and quick wit. “The work Harrison Groutage did over the course of his long and productive career as an artist will be helpful for our students to

Teixeira, while still working with Po’Girl, is currently embarking on her first solo project. In her formative years, Teixeira toured and See TEIXEIRA on Page 13

see,” says Chris Terry, associate dean in the CCA. “So often, pieces like sketches and sketchbooks are not made available to the public in exhibitions like this, and we have a unique opportunity for students to see the planning and process Groutage went through to become such an accomplished artist.” The exhibit will also feature a silent auction benefitting The Harrison and Iva Lou Groutage Scholarship. Harrison Groutage died in February 2013.

Awna Teixeira will perform on Jan. 24 in Logan.

to be a passion, and she has had the opportunity to be a long-term substitute art teacher at Edith Bowen Laboratory School, the visiting artist through a UDAM/ Crayola grant (Summit Elementary second-graders, 2013 Art in Transit project), and she is currently teaching for the Cache Valley Center For the Arts.

‘Lone Survivor’ seals the top spot at the box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Lone Survivor” triumphed at the weekend box office. The patriotic Navy SEAL drama starring Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster smashed expectations to earn $38.5 million domestically in its first weekend in wide release, according to studio estimates Sunday. The Universal film directed by “Friday Night Lights” and “Battleship” filmmaker Peter Berg is based on Marcus Luttrell’s memoir about a dangerous mission his Navy SEAL team embarked on in Afghanistan in 2005. “We’re thrilled for us, the filmmakers and Marcus, who — as brave as a man as he is — continues to be brave in telling this true story,” said Nikki Rocco, head of distribution for Universal. “It’s an amazing result. What’s most gratifying about this is that it’s been endorsed by every quadrant of the movie-going audience: young, old, male, female.” Rocco said “Lone Survivor” performed particularly well in middle America. The movie’s launch marks the second biggest opening for a film

in January, after the $40.1 million debut of the monster movie “Cloverfield” in 2008. “We had an inkling it’d do well when it opened in limited release in December, but projections had it coming in between $17 million to $28 million,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak. “Nothing had it coming close to $40 million.” In its eighth weekend, Disney’s icy animated tale “Frozen” stayed cool in the No. 2 spot, earning $15 million and bringing its domestic total to $317 million, passing Disney Animation’s $312 million record set by “The Lion King” in 1994. “Frozen” also topped the international box office with $27.8 million from 50 international markets. Paramount’s controversial “The Wolf of Wall Street” scored No. 3 in its third weekend, earning $9 million and boosting its total domestic haul to $78.6 million. The hedonistic tycoon drama directed by Martin Scorsese stars Leonardo DiCaprio as reckless stock broker Jordan Belfort. The film earned an additional $10 million from 17 international territories.

he suspects will be sold off in a coordinated act of terrorism and currency devaluation. Surely, if Ronald Reagan (whose endorsement of Clancy’s first novel, “The Hunt for Red October,” propelled his fame) was still around, he’d swoon over a spy thriller based on the harrowing threat of inflation. Ryan’s investigation leads him to the Russian oligarch Viktor Cherevin, played by Kenneth Branagh, who also directed the film. Certainly, it takes a bite out of the nationalistic politics when the movie’s villain is played by a knighted British actor known for his Shakespeare work. Branagh endows his film with (mostly) oldfashioned competency — something often lacking in today’s action films — but little to distinguish it from superior thrillers that have come before. The best thing here is the sleekness of modern Moscow, where much of the action takes place. The film is filled with a nighttime mix of neon and taillights set against the Kremlin and other monuments — a hand-

some enough rendering to send a viewer back to the recent Bond, “Skyfall,” for those elegant Shanghai scenes. But “Shadow Recruit” is also disappointingly formulaic, relying on the familiar set piecedriven story of an implausible heist and a time-bomb finale. Knightley is too strong a force for this girlfriend role. And when the global scheme is figured out in a minute with a bank of computersearching analysts, one foresees the obsolescence of the action film: sprawling plots undone with a few keystrokes. “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” is perhaps most significantly a test for Pine as a movie star. Early in the film, when Ryan is forced to defend his life in a hotel room battle, he ably depicts the shock and horror of a man encountering such a circumstance for the first time. But Pine also fails to make his Jack Ryan more than an afterthought to Baldwin’s know-it-all or Ford’s

usic moves people in a way words can’t. It’s a universal language that speaks to people in many different ways. A concert can have 300 different people experience a piece of music in completely different ways, and the Fry Street Quartet tries to help people experience that music. The foursome, which currently holds the Endowed String Quartet Residency at the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University, most recently shared their musical talents Tuesday night at the USU Performance Hall. Brad Ottesen, the violist for the quartet, says music has been a big part of his family, thanks to his grandfather. His grandfather was a great lover of music that grew up during the Great Depression. He says because his grandfather had no money to take professional lessons, he taught himself to play the piano. Many of the lessons he and his siblings received, Ottesen says, were made possible by his grandfather. “He thought it was very important that all of his grandchildren were to have that opportunity,” he says. Music can bring happiness to people’s lives, Ottesen adds, and helps bring a sense of connection to the performers and the audience. Robert Waters, a violinist for the quartet, said there is an energy around chamber music in Cache Valley that wouldn’t necessarily be there without the Fry Street Quartet. “There’s a personal connection as opposed to a group coming in and playing a concert and then leaving,” he says. “There’s a personal connection with a lot of people throughout the valley.” Anne Francis Bayless, the cellist for the

Roberts Waters (violin), Rebecca McFaul (violin), Anne Francis Bayless (cello) and Bradley Ott

quartet, says it’s that personal connection that allows the audience to invest in the music in a different way. There is no right way to experience a concert, she says. There is no right reaction to have about a piece. An open mind to the music is all that is needed to have a fulfilling concert experience. “They don’t need to have any prior knowledge,” Francis Bayless explains.

“They can just experience it on whatever level works for them.” Something that comes with experience in performing and what becomes a part of your philosophy, Ottesen says, is that the music isn’t about the musician at all, it’s about the music. “When you step on stage and you really trust your colleagues, then you’re able to gain strength from one another in a way

He thinks about Michael Jordan being “Sometimes when we perform it’s a feeling on a basketball court.

When she is on stage, and the quartet is performing a piece, Francis Bayless says it’s like she’s having a conversation with her three best friends. The quartet has gotten a following since they began in 1997, and they have many loyal audience members. It’s amazing how much support the Fry Street Quartet has in the valley, Ottesen says, and how many people follow and know them. “There’s nothing more fun than stepping out on stage and seeing familiar faces,” he says. When he first came to Cache Valley to apply for the open violist position for the quartet, Ottesen says he was amazed at how many people around town recognized the other members. This valley and the loyal followers are what makes the quartet so unique, Waters says. With their positions as professors at Utah State University and the loyalty of the university and its administrators, the quartet will be a part of the community for many years to come. “Another way we can share our passion for the music and for the art form is not just by playing concerts but by being a part of a community that will respond to our presence here,” Waters says. “On the one hand there’s a certain buzz around music in New York because it’s a very vital part of the culture there, but it’s not nearly as personal.” Talking about a piece isn’t something that should be done often. Ottesen says there is a phrase for that. He says he doesn’t know where that quote first came from, but it makes sense: “Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.”

Meltzer’s new books teach kids real heroics

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Novelist and comics writer Brad Meltzer is no stranger to heroes, having written about the likes of the Justice League, Batman and Buffy the Vampire slayer. Now, his latest work, “Ordinary People Change the World,” focuses on real-world role models like Amelia Earhart and Abraham Lincoln to help younger readers learn about and from authentic trail- says. “If I told my daughter that blazers.

six books, “I Am Amelia Earhart” and “I Am Abraham Lincoln,” are out Tuesday and illustrated by artist Chris Eliopoulos In the story about Lincoln, Meltzer recounts how the future president, just 10 years old stood up to a crowd of

older kids putting hot coals atop live turtles. “He could have easily backed down, but he stands up to that injustice,” said Meltzer. “There is a moment of the greatness that will one day come.” Meltzer said four more titles are planned with Rosa Parks, Lucille Ball and Albert Einstein as subjects. “When you look around, we’re starving for heroes,” he said of his decision to write the stories. “These aren’t just the stories of famous people, this is what we’re all capable of on our best days.” Meltzer’s novels include “The Book of Fate” and “The Fifth Assassin.”

The play was performed by the King’s Men in the court of King James in 1612, published in London in 1653 as a work by Shakespeare and Fletcher, and briefly revived in an edited form in the 1720s by Lewis Theobald, who claimed to have copies of the original prompter’s script. The Arden Shakespeare finally published this work as “Double Falsehood” in 2010. The script was considered largely unplayable due to a couple of missing pieces, but Gregory Doran, artistic director of the Royal Shakespeare Company worked with Spanish playwright and Cervantes scholar Antonio Alamo to add a few scenes based on the story found in “Don Quixote.” The resulting play garnered rave reviews when the RSC staged it in 2011, and it is their script Logan Youth Shakespeare will bring to life in Logan.

The second film is twice as long and “Boyhood” – Director Richard Linpromises just as much martial arts klater was at Sundance last year with “Before Midnight.” This year Linklater mayhem.

“Mitt” – A movie that may catch the eye of many Utahans is the new documentary about Mitt Romney. The synopsis states that the people making this documentary were provided almost unlimited access to the Republican presidential nominee. There’s already been sightings of Mitt Romney circulating through the Twitterverse. Last I heard he was buying bananas at a local Park City grocery store. So, he’ll be up there, with the film, most likely answering questions after it’s over. Sundance Kids – There is a section of programming this year tailored to kids. Sundance has had a reputation of showing mostly adult-themed films. This is true. However, this year they’re embracing the fact that some people may want to take their children to movies they don’t normally watch.

“Ernest and Celestine” is an animated movie about a mouse and a bear. “Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang” promises to be a fun film for older kids (9 and up is recommended). It’s from Spain. It’s never too early for kids to start learning to read subtitles, right? There are plenty of other films in the festival that I’d love to see, but this is just a small smattering of the ones I think will be interesting no matter what. Hopefully, you’ll find a day or two to spend at the festival. It truly is one of the most unique things about Utah. Now if you don’t mind, I’ve got some movies to see. ———

Follow Aaron Peck on Twitter @AaronPeck, for all the Sundance craziness. Who knows, he might see some precious celebrities and attempt to take awkward pictures with them.
