FROM THE EDITOR It’s not often that you retire from your chosen profession, then graduate from college. But Anthony Calvillo is planning to walk with other Utah State University graduates on Saturday, almost 21 years after quarterbacking the Aggies to their firstever bowl victory in Las Vegas Bowl II. Now 41 years old, Calvillo officially hung up his cleats in January after one of the greatest careers in the history of the Canadian Football League. Playing primarily with the Montreal Alouettes, Calvillo retired with the most yards (79,816) and touchdowns (455) in CFL history, while winning three

Grey Cup championships. But despite all that success, Calvillo says the older he got, the more he wanted to find a way to finish up the final 15 hours of a USU degree. “I wanted my kids to see me graduate on stage,” Calvillo says. “I have two girls who are 8 and 6. It was important that they have that visual of me walking across the stage. I’m really looking forward to it.” I still remember interviewing Calvillo immediately following USU’s 42-33 victory over Ball State in Vegas, and had he finished up his degree so long ago, we actually could have walked together. It’s hard to believe that more than two decades have now passed, but since I recently announced my retirement from slow-pitch softball, I sort of, kind of

know what Calvillo’s going through. We’ll both be looking for something to keep us busy this summer, although his travel plans apparently don’t involve visiting Idaho or Salt Lake City. “I’m going to enjoy the summer. Playing football for 20 years I haven’t had a summer off because our season ran from June to the end of November,” says Calvillo, who also made a brief appearance in the 2002 Tom Clancy film “The Sum of All Fears” in some footage from a CFL game. “My wife’s family is from Europe,” he adds, “So we’re going to go there for five weeks. We’ll spend time in Paris, Germany and Greece.” With a brief — but long-awaited — stop this weekend in Cache Valley.

all mixed up Logan Fine Art hosts new exhibit Logan Fine Art Gallery will be hosting the artwork of Simon Winegar and Linda Marion during the month of May beginning with a reception for the public from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 9. The exhibit will run through May 31. Creating moods that are often romantic and thought provoking, Winegar’s tonalist landscapes are meant to provide collectors with a view of the world that runs counter to some of the more negative versions of it that are found in today’s culture. “Sometimes it seems like we live in an ugly, unforgiving world”, Winegar told American Art Collector in 2008. “So, the point is to attempt to beautify the world. I want to create a mood that moves the viewer.” After entering the market in 2000, Winegar’s work became instantly respected and honored. He has been featured in many magazines, books and art venues that have shown his work in a light of professionalism and quality. His work shows in Simon Winegar and Linda Marion will be featured during the month of May at Logan Fine Art. some of the most respected galstudied with professors Alvin the walls of the Springville temporary Masters of Fine Art. leries in the United States and Marion received her training Gittens, Doug Snow, Ed has been seen in almost a dozen Art Museum, The Museum of in drawing and painting at the Church History and Art and the one-man shows to date.

December. The full range of bells and chimes will be used. The bell choirs rehearse from August through May during which time they typically give a several performances at churches, retirement apartment complexes, nursing homes and other venues.

‘The Other Woman’ takes over top spot at box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — Few things are as bold as a trio of scorned women. At the box office this weekend, superhero Captain America was overpowered by Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, whose revenge comedy “The Other Woman” debuted at No. 1. Fox’s femaledriven hit halted threeweek box office leader “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” The comedy about three women wronged by a three-timing spouse played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of “Game of Thrones” — raked in $25 million according to Monday’s final box office figures. The Disney-Marvel “Captain America” sequel has had a great run, marking its place in history as the blockbuster with the best April opening ever. This

weekend it added $16.2 million in ticket sales, bringing its domestic haul to more than $225 million. After debuting above expectations, Sony’s faith-based “Heaven Is for Real” continued to show well, finishing in third place with $14.4 million in its second weekend. The animated “Rio 2” dropped a spot to fourth place with $14 million, while “Brick Mansions,” starring Paul Walker, had a firm opening with $10 million at No. 5. The action crime drama was one of the last film’s Walker completed before he died in a car accident in November. It was pushed back from its original February release date. A24 Films’ “Locke,” starring Tom Hardy, scored the weekend’s highest per-screen average after debuting on only four screens

in New York and Los Angeles. The Steven Knight directed drama, which will expand to more theaters in the coming weeks, banked $89,210 overall. This year, the film distribution company also released the sci-fi drama “Under the Skin,” featuring Scarlett Johansson, and thriller “Enemy” with Jake Gyllenhaal. “Skin” opened slightly higher than “Locke” in early April with $133,154 domestically, reaching a total of over $1.5 million. “Enemy” has earned over $992,000 after opening in March. Since launching in 2012, A24 has distributed an impressive flock of films, including “Spring Breakers,” “The Bling Ring” and “The Spectacular Now.” Together, the projects collected over $26 million. Not a bad run for a boutique distributor.

The Reel Place Aaron Peck

“The Amazing SpiderMan 2” subscribes to the crash-bang hysteria of the summer movie season. There’s a bloat of CGI-enhanced battle scenes where the more recognizable parts of New York City are reduced to rubble during Spider-Man’s battle with a new electric foe named Electro (Jamie Foxx). Yet, underneath all that mayhem and computergenerated destruction is a superhero movie that doesn’t shy away from consequences. Rarely does the status quo change in the Disney/ Marvel movies. Here things change drastically. As much as I enjoyed Marc Webb’s initial reboot of the SpiderMan franchise, this second movie outdoes the first in a lot of ways. Sure, there are a variety of complaints to be had with it, first and foremost the musical score is just the worst. When Phillip Phillips’ “Gone Gone Gone” pops on the soundtrack as Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) is going through a character-building montage while trying to figure out what really happened to his estranged parents, it’s hard not to groan at the obviousness of it all — “And I would do it for you.” It’s one bad choice in a string of

‘Spider-Man 2’ takes ‘rewarding detour’ doesn’t want to reveal his identity, and is afraid that giving his friend his blood may very well kill him. Finally, there’s Max (Foxx), a very lonely, nerdy scientist sporting a pocket protector that would make the guys on “The Big Bang” jealous. Max is an electrical genius, but like so many people who work at Oscorp, he’s transformed into a Spider-Man-hating super villain after a workplace accident with some genetically modified electric eels. Max is in an interesting villain. He’s a quiet, unassuming outcast, trampled on by his managers. He’s weak. After being saved by Spider-Man early on in the movie, he forms an unhealthy obsession with the masked crusader. His character arc is one of the more fulfilling aspects of the movie. How does a man with no discernible power handle god-like power when it’s given to him? Once the final third of the film rolls around,

Logan High the


pril was a month of murder and mystery at Logan High School, where theater students performed productions of two plays based on the works of renowned mystery writer Agatha Christie: “The Mousetrap” and “A Murder Is Announced.” Logan High theater teacher Mitzi Mecham said she hadn’t had students do mysteries for a long time, so she thought it would be fun for her current class to take on that genre. And with such small casts, she felt it would be a good idea to do two plays. The two Christie plays provided the opportunity to do two productions as easily as possible with the constraints on time, resources and manpower her class would be working under. “I’d done ‘Mousetrap’ and ‘ A Murder Is Announced’ before, about probably 20 years ago, and they worked really well for the sets, so I didn’t have to build two complete sets,” Mecham said. “We just built a back wall that was interchangeable, and we decided

These two just seemed to be the two that worked best with the set.” “The Mousetrap” has the distinction of being the longest continuously running production in theater’s modern era, with more than 25,000 performances at London’s West End since its opening in 1952. And there’s more. “Chances are, somewhere there is always a performance of ‘Mousetrap’ going on,” says Logan senior Dane Braddy, who played the part of Detective Sergeant Trotter in the play. “It’s a classic Agatha Christie murder mystery. But the premise is, there’s this murder that’s taken place, and the killer left a message that said, ‘Three blind mice, and this is the first,’ written on it. There’s some connection with these people who are staying in this guest house and this murder, and my character is trying to find out what it is, and no one’s speaking up. And tensions are high,

covered. “It’s a lot funnier than we thought it was,” Courter said. “When we read the script, we were like, ‘This is fun.’ And we hear people out here laughing. It’s different than what we thought it would be. There’s quite a few plot twists, lots of interweaving. I personally don’t play a whole lot of part in that; I’m a very confused character. But everyone’s got secrets.” While Courter isn’t planning on theater being more than a hobby in her future, Isaac has some big plans that she hopes will take her to Arizona State University. All of the students pulled double duty on the productions, doing set work and other support operations on the show they weren’t acting in. Isaac appreciated the opportunity to learn the different aspects of putting on a successful stage production. “What I actually want to go into is directing. And so I did a lot of the set work and stuff, so I try to keep it well-rounded,” she said.

Library exhibit focuses on the Bridger Folk Society University Libraries at Utah State University, in conjunction with the community-based Bridger Folk Music Society, is currently hosting an exhibit that celebrates the society’s 35th anniversary. The exhibit, “Celebrating Folk Music in Cache Valley: Selections from Special Collections and Archives and Bridger Folk Music Society, 1979-2014,” can be seen in the atrium area of USU’s Merrill-Cazier Library through June 6. The exhibit includes items from University Libraries and its Fife Folklore Archives and ephemera collected from past and current Bridger Folk Music Society board members. Twelve original posters by award-winning graphic artist Bob Bissland will constitute the core of the exhibit. The exhibit will also include a display of music CDs and musical instruments generally seen and heard in folk music. The Bridger Folk Music Society was founded in 1979 by a group of folk music lovers who wanted to create more opportunities for folk singers and musicians to perform in Logan, and provide a way for local musicians to meet and play music together. Originally loosely organized and privately funded, the society eventually filed for nonprofit status, established a bank account and began receiving funding from various sources. More than 15 individuals, many still living in the region, have served the

organization as advocates and sponsors. Over the years, the society has hosted many folk, bluegrass and world music concerts, instrument workshops, local jam sessions and contradances. “Celebrating Folk

Music in Cache Valley: Selections from Special Collections and Archives and Bridger Folk Music Society, 1979-2014” is free and open to everyone during Merrill-Cazier Library hours. Visit for hours.

Heading home on a peacekeeping mission

a little gravesite surfing with remaining relatives? Sometimes you need to multitask when facing your fears. The phrase “you can’t go home again” has become a cliché that has some truth to it, but you must remember this was just a novel written by Thomas Wolfe in the 1930s. There were a lot less homes to go back to and a lot less technology and prescription drugs available to help you through the process. Here are all the going-home-

I am also used to having mountains to define east and west; when I return to the Midwest I’m completely directionless unless it happens to be near sunrise or sunset.

There are no lifeguards on duty at the nostalgia pool The shallow end of the pool is cool, safe and refreshing, but the pool bottom slopes downward to the deep end, which is treacherous and populated by leeches and dragons. The reason that most high school reunions are held for only a couple hours every 10 years is because that is the time limit on how much conversation you can have with people you haven’t been close to for 40 years.

Slightly Off Center DENNIS HINKAMP

Last week I embarked on a peacekeeping mission. The objective was to keep my peace of mind. I have a lot of reasons not to go home again. At age 12 I was robbed at knifepoint in the mid-afternoon at the baseball stadium. I got caught in the middle of a knives and baseball bats racially motivated fight with an opposing baseball team in my teens. More recently, I had to go back for a series of funerals. Let’s just say I am ambivalent about the place I grew up. I don’t want to name names or impede tourism, but it is the city with the Major League Baseball team that features the state bird perched on a bat. That and a giant steel croquet wicket fronting the Mississippi River.   So, why not face a little more pain and head back for my 40th high school reunion, attend a baseball game and do

foundering in the deep end of memory best reserved for 18th century Russian angst novels or French cinema. Brief faded memory is what perpetuates humanity and our American hybrid vigor. Seek pleasant diversions You need a little time to eddy out when you are boating down the turbulent memory river. My favorite travel pastime of late has been visiting vintage clothing and consignment stores. It simultaneously reminds me of the horror of my younger clothing choices and the added horror that I did not save them long enough to sell them at a

premium. What was my score for the trip? Four stars for the baseball team winning and me not getting mugged; 27 out of 172 of my class of 1974 arrived mostly happy and healthy; I found the location of four relatives buried in the military cemetery; and I came home with three vintage shirts totaling only $56 for what probably cost $3.50 new in 1972. I’m looking forward to, though not counting on, being around for the 50th reunion. ——— Dennis Hinkamp suggests that everyone occasionally go at least ankle deep in nostalgia.

Books ‘Natchez Burning’ is latest from Greg Iles By Oline H. Cogdill Associated Press

Greg Iles’ fourth novel about Natchez, Miss., lawyer Penn Cage is a bold look at the civil rights movement, bigotry, parental love and the legacy of violence wrapped in a solid plot that starts in 1964 and deftly alternates to 2005 without missing a beat. The comprehensive history of the struggle for civil rights in Mississippi told in “Natchez Burning” is comparable to novels such as James Michener’s “Hawaii” in its breadth

scenes and one-dimensional villains. While there’s little doubt that each scene is authentically devised, the shock factor lessens with each telling, and the story would have been stronger at half its length. Dr. Tom Cage is one of the most respected citizens in Natchez, and is idolized by his son Penn. Tom is accused in the death of his former and scope. nurse, Viola Turner. Viola, But as fascinating as the dying of cancer, returned plot is, “Natchez Burnto her hometown after ing” almost sinks under nearly 40 years. Tom had its own weight. Topping been secretly treating her. off at 800 pages, this Her son, Lincoln, charges first novel in a trilogy that Tom helped hasten is marred by repetitive his mother’s death with a

lethal injection. The case links back to Natchez during the 1960s. Several area black men, including Viola’s brother, were targeted by the Double Eagles, a violent off-shoot of the Ku Klux Klan. Penn’s attempts to learn Tom’s connection to the Double Eagles and his past with Viola lead to some uncomfortable truths about his father. No matter how much Penn thinks of his father, a man who raised his children to believe in equality for all men, Penn is reminded of a quote about great men: “There is always something.”

Continued from Page 7 it’s easy to spot its blockbuster bloat. Villains seem to be popping up out of the woodwork. Spider-Man is engaged in an endless climatic battle, which results in so much climax fatigue. Though, all this carnage isn’t without its consequences, and that’s what makes this movie special. No one is safe. Characters move on. Lives are changed forever. Spider-Man may be cracking jokes most of the time, but here’s a superhero movie that isn’t scared of weightier human issues like grief, loss and death. It’s a nice change from other comic book movies that are deathly afraid of changing up their fabricated status quo. It’s an exciting and mostly rewarding detour from the norm.

The Heritage Theatre in Perry will present “One for the Pot” on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays from April 18 to May 10. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. with an additional matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 26. Written by Ray Cooney and Tony Hilton and directed by Jacob Thompson, tickets for “One for the Pot” are $10 for adults and $9 for children. Call (435) 723-8392 for reservations daily between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. (except Tuesdays and Sundays), or purchase tickets at the Heritage Theatre box office at

Charlie Barnet (Brian Wood) has problems with Billy Wood (Benjamin Ream) and Mrs. Amy Hardcastle (Diane Robbins) in “One for the Pot” at the Heritage Theatre.

2505 S. U.S. Hwy. 89 or online at A highly rewarding eve-

ning’s entertainment, this hilarious farce revolves around a young man, Hickory Wood (Benjamin

Ream) who has to prove he is the only child of a former business associate of a rich mill owner in order to receive payment of 10,000 pounds. The story takes place in the English country estate of Jonathan Hardcastle (Michael Bennett). Hardcastle is rolling in money and wants to give some of it (10,000 pounds, to be exact) to the son of his former business associate. The only stipulation is that the young man must be his father’s sole heir. “One For The Pot” ran for over 1,200 performances at London’s Whitehall Theatre.

BC speaker to discuss ‘tie-hacking’ Between 1867 and 1938, thousands of men and women from around the world toiled in the timber-rich Uinta Mountains in northeastern Utah cutting ties for the growing transcontinental railroad systems. “Tie-hacking” became an enduring and stable industry because each mile of railroad required between 2,300 and 3,000 crossties. There was also a need for continued track maintenance and tie replacement on existing lines. A presentation entitled, “Tie-

hacking Industry in the Uinta Mountains, 1867-1938,” will be given by Christopher W. Merritt, a senior preservation specialist for the Utah Division of State History, at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 7, at the Brigham City Museum of Art and History. Admission is free. The museum is located at 24 N. 300 West; the entrance is on the west side. For further information, please call (435) 226-1439 or visit www.

The event celebrates both Utah Archaeology Week (May 3-10) and the completion of the transcontinental railroad on May 10, 1869. Merritt’s research about tiehacking was recently submitted to the National Register of Historic Places. Merritt has a Ph.D. from the University of Montana in Anthropology and has previously worked for the United States Forest Service and private archaeological firms in Nevada, Utah and Montana.



Continued from Page 4 Maryon, Tony Smith and Robert Kleinschmidt, among others. She graduated with a BFA in 1967, followed by a one-year stint as a VISTA Volunteer working in the northern Appalachian. That experience provided the inspiration for her MFA thesis, which she completed at Utah in 1971. Later, Marion returned to school at the John Hopkins School of Advanced International Sudies in Bologna, Italy, where she gained an extensive list of awards and accolades. Together, Winegar and Marion display a keen understanding of how the play of light on an object transcends function and becomes a vehicle to show us the beauties of this world in a new light, deepening our appreciation for this beautiful world we all share.

Continued from Page 5 their personal experience with it,” Francis says. “I was also eager to teach this story to my students because it communicates timely lessons about growing up, pursuing dreams, making difficult choices, accepting the consequences of those choices, and ultimately succeeding through courage and perseverance. In other words, this is exactly what middle school kids face every day.” Sondheim’s characters

are borrowed from fairy tales. There’s the baker and his wife who want a family, naive Jack with his magic beans, sassy Little Red Riding Hood who encounters the gluttonous wolf on the way to her grandmother’s house, two charming but pompous princes who doggedly chase Cinderella and Rapunzel and, of course, an ugly witch who wants to be beautiful. These characters and more interact with motivations, choices and consequences that portent the joys, heartbreaks and renewal that people young and old encounter as they make their way through their lives.

Amy Smith is back to show off her super simple recipes for crock pot lasagna and honey popcorn that will leave you relaxed and free to enjoy dinner. You must reserve a seat at the service desk, and please be on time. Classes are for ages 10 and up. Check us out on Facebook or visit for more information.
