Since Brett Gold at DKC Public Relations on Fifth Avenue in New York City was kind enough to send me an email and address me by name, I feel compelled to pass along the following information: FOX’s “The X Factor” will be holding auditions Tuesday, May 14, at the Denver Coliseum in Denver. Granted, that’s not exactly Salt Lake City, but the press release pointed out that “Denver will be the ONLY audition city in your part of the

country for this season of ‘The X Factor.’ We are encouraging people from all over the city and the surrounding states to come down and try out.” Personally, I have never watched “The X Factor,” and I admit I had to go online in order to distinguish it from “The Voice,” “American Idol,” “America’s Got Talent,” etc. I now recall the show being Simon Cowell’s new venture after leaving “Idol,” and “The X Factor” apparently involved the likes of Britney Spears, Paul Abdul, Demi Lovato, one of the Kardashians and Slater from “Saved by the Bell” during its first two seasons. I’m not sure who will be on hand in
Denver — the press release doesn’t say — but if you’re an aspiring singer or group who’s willing to make an eight-hour drive for a shot at reality show immortality, visit www.thexfactorusa.com for more information. Wristbands will first be made available at 8 a.m. Sunday, May 12, so you might have to spend a few days in the Mile High City — which is never a bad thing. And should you end up being the next Melanie Amaro (Season 1 winner) or Tate Stevens (Season 2), it will definitely all be worth it. Just don’t forget to tell Simon that Jeff Hunter sent ya.

An ironclad relationship
Paltrow and Downey are pals beyond ‘Iron Man 3’
LOS ANGELES (AP) — There’s something of the old married couple about Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr., though they’re married to other people. They’ve known each other for 20 years, through bad times (his) and good (hers all along and now his, too).

PET OF THE WEEK Available for adoption
Pet: Woof From: Cache Humane Society Why he’s so lovable: Woof! Woof! That is my name. We are the noise group; my siblings are Oink, Baa and Moo. We grew up with goats and wouldn’t mind having permanent goat friends. But we would prefer to have a human family, as well. I will be a large breed, and I need someone wellsuited and willing to deal with how big I am about to become. We are all a little shy because we are used to the goats, but the shelter workers are excited that we have started to play and open up quite a bit already. Come meet me, you will fall in love.

all mixed up Annual piano competition slated for Saturday Prepare to be impressed as you watch the region’s best high school pianists compete for a $1,000 first-place prize at the Second Annual Dahle Piano Competition at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Dahle Performing Arts Center in Dayton, Idaho. A panel of professional judges will determine the winner based on several criteria such as technique, rhythm, accuracy, interpretation, etc. Admission is free.
Southeastern Idaho and Cache Valley schools have been invited to enter one student per school. Each school is using their own criteria for selecting their one representative. Some schools already have an annual fine arts competition in place. In such cases, the winner of the piano category is the natural choice to participate in the Dahle Competition. The Dahle Piano Competition is the vision of Larry
and Joan Dahle of Logan. Throughout his life, Larry has been able to see the difference that music can make in a person’s life. Larry, a trumpet player in high school and former military man, has always valued discipline and strong work ethics. Those characteristics have benefited him throughout his life as an entrepreneur and businessman. “Music is very important for kids,” Dahle said. “Too many kids today lack discipline. Pur-
suing musical training not only helps kids learn this discipline, but it makes them better students and better citizens.” When asked why he approached West Side School District about hosting the piano competition, Dahle explained, “I wanted to stimulate the talent in these young kids. I see so much potential and sometimes it just takes a challenge for kids to rise to the top.” The Dahle Performing Arts
Wegkamp shares her work Fine Art Gallery hosts opening event tonight The Logan Fine Art Gallery will be hosting a onewoman art show for Laura Wegkamp from May 3 to June 1. The opening reception will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight at the Logan Fine Art Gallery, 60 W. 100 North. The public is invited to come meet the artist. Wegkamp produces awardwinning, realistic paintings in watercolor and oil, with some of her most recent work featuring a combination of the two mediums. Although she paints a variety of subjects, her passion is the human figure. Much of her artwork is inspired by a colorful and culturally diverse childhood, growing up partially in Central America and Europe. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Art degree in April 2007 at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Her artwork has

been juried into numerous regional, national, and international juried exhibitions, as well as four solo gallery shows.
At age 19, Laura became the youngest Signature Member of the New Mexico Watercolor Society on record. Her work is held in both pub-
lic and private collections in the U.S., Latin America and Europe. For more information, visit loganfineartgallery.com.
Center is a beautiful tribute to the Dahle family and their support of education in the region. The Center comfortably seats 775 and is a stateof-the-art facility in its construction, acoustics, sound and décor. The Dahles donated a new Yamaha C7 concert grand piano when the facility was completed just over three years ago. The auditorium is used for a variety of school and community events throughout the year.
Laughter on the schedule at Utah State The anthropology of humor and laughter is the topic for a new activity Saturday, May 4, at Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology and its “Saturdays at the Museum” series. Throughout the day, visitors can explore the evolution of the traditional comic strip and black and white comedy films, then look to the present with modern, viral videos. Children can create their own comic strips while learning about the healing benefits of laughter, event organizers said. “Humor and laughter are universal human traits,” said Prairie Fox, a museum assistant. “But each culture has different experiences and ideas that are seen as funny. We are excited to show patrons some of the many ways that humor is seen around the world.” “Saturdays at the Museum” activities are held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the museum will be open during USU commencement activities Saturday. Admission is free. For more information visit anthromuseum.usu.edu.

Seeking historic homes
Organizers of the sixth annual Cache Valley Historic Home Show Tour are looking for homes to feature on their sixth annual tour, which will be held Sept. 7. The event is presented by the Cache Historical Society and Cache Valley Visitors Bureau. “There are beautiful architectural treasures in Cache Valley,” said Julie Hollist, tour co-chair. “Some people are shy about showing them and others can’t wait for the chance. Either way it allows others to have a glimpse into our heritage and the quality of work done by early craftsmen.” Homes and yards don’t need to be perfect to qualify, and structures can be big or small. Proceeds from the tour are used for scholarships for USU students studying regional history and to provide funding to transport elementary school students on field trips to the American West Heritage Center. Anyone interested or who has suggestions of homes they’d like to see on the tour should contact Bernice McCowin at 753-5570, or the Cache Valley Visitors Bureau at 755-1890.

Still playing Michael Bay’s true-crime caper lacks the visual-effects mayhem and sci-fi cacophony of his “Transformers” blockbusters, yet the movie uses all the shock and awe and noise and bluster the director has in his utterly unsubtle arsenal. Unlike Bay’s usual action nonsense, there’s a story, screenplay, characters and wry mix of suspense and pitiable comedy to be had in the tale of three Florida bodybuilders (Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson and Anthony Mackie) who blunder through kidnapping-extortion schemes like the Three Stooges on steroids. The dumbfounding farce of how these guys screw things up should be entertainment enough on its own. All but the faintest flashes of humanity and pathos are flattened by the cinematic cyclone that is Michael Bay. He drowns the movie in gimmick and style which, rather than gussying things up, dresses them down to make the movie even more
★ ‘Pain & Gain’ Director // Michael Bay Starring // Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Ed Harris Rated // R for bloody violence, crude sexual content, nudity, language throughout and drug use
ugly and sordid than it is on paper. Johnson manages some goofy hijinks, but Wahlberg’s just grubby and Mackie’s a bore. Tony Shalhoub is ferocious as the first kidnap victim, Ed Harris adds the movie’s only notes of grace as a detective on the case and Rebel Wilson has scenestealing moments that feel wonderfully improvised as Mackie’s kooky wife. But those few highlights are incinerated in the bonfires Bay sets on-screen. 129 minutes. — David Germain, AP Movie Writer
‘Pain’ tops the box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Iron Man 3” was the heavy-lifter at theaters with a colossal overseas debut that overshadowed a gang of mercenary bodybuilders in a sleepy pre-summer weekend at the domestic box office.
The Marvel Studios superhero sequel starring Robert Downey Jr. got a head-start on its domestic launch next Friday with a $195.3 million See BOX on Page 10
The flowing Iowa cornfields of Ramin Bahrani’s sweeping Midwest drama of fathers and sons, farms and seed, have nothing on the amber waves of Zac Efron’s hair. As the race car-driving Dean, Efron attempts a classic American icon: the sweaty, sandy-haired, teenage trouble-maker. But the rebel role doesn’t suit Efron: He doesn’t have a lick of danger about him. In any case, this is Dennis Quaid’s movie. He stars as Dean’s father, Henry Whipple, a fake-smiling huckster trying to live up to the family business. His thousands of acres aren’t pastoral so much as the backdrop to the hulking modern machinery that drives his small empire, one fed by genetically modified seeds that he aggressively sells to other farmers. He’s cheating on his wife Irene (Kim Dickens) with a younger woman (Heather Graham). His older, more loved son has abandoned him to travel in South America. Dean has no interest in the family business, though

his girlfriend (Maika Monroe) begins accompanying him on visits to his customers. There’s much to admire about the film, but Bahrani (“Man Push Cart”), in his largest scale film yet, seems to be wrestling with the balance of a more sizable production. Its metaphors of capitalism aren’t subtle, the score is heavy-handed and the film doesn’t quite earn the grim resonance it seeks.

The trend for superhero movies over the past few years has been to go dark. Brooding character studies replaced comic book frivolity. “Batman Begins” started the trend and it’s continued down through the major superhero franchises. Even the first two “Iron Man” movies felt like they had a darker twinge to them. The third “Iron Man” movie seems to head in the opposite direction. The gloomy melancholy that’s been so prevalent in the superhero genre as of late has been replaced by jokes and lightheartedness. This is perhaps Robert Downey Jr.’s snarkiest “Iron Man” yet. Much of the movie is dedicated to listening to his impossibly clever self-absorbed quips. He doesn’t care who he’s talking to, whether it be the love of his life Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) or a small bespectacled kid at a restaurant, Tony Stark is determined to get in as many verbal jabs as he can before someone calls him on it. “Iron Man 3” is set during Christmas. Why? I don’t really know. It feels strange that it’s set during Christmas especially because there’s no discernible reason for it being Christmas. It doesn’t have a significant impact on the story, and only serves to distract. Anyway, Stark is reciting the story. His voiceover explains the situation. We flashback to 1999, as Stark recounts a meeting he blew off with a man he didn’t care about. Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) is an awkward

and a heart-pounding scene which involves Iron Man trying to save a dozen people freefalling to earth from 30,000 feet up after being sucked out of a hole in Air Force One. There’s no situation that the movie finds too outlandish. At times it borders on ridiculous. Paltrow has always been a weak link in the series, and here she’s asked to do far too much considering her character. The corniness factor with Potts is off the charts. Toward the middle of the film Stark teams up with a young inventor (Ty Simpkins) who matches his witty banter line for line. It’s one of the more satisfying aspects of the movie. However, the last 20 minutes is all action, explosions, and Stark one-liners. I hesitate to reveal anything that happens during that time, but it makes all the corny aspects of the movie well worth sitting through.

hat a lot of people see as an old, decaying tree, George Hessenthaler sees as a potential masterpiece. Hessenthaler is the owner, founder and president of Urban Forest Wood Works, a mill in Logan that takes old, discarded wood and turns it into well-crafted jewelry boxes, gun cases, briefcases, urns and other treasures. The 73-year-old specializes in purchasing aged city trees — mainly from Cache Valley and mainly from arborists, tree trimmers and landfills — and saving them from being burned or turned into mulch. “A tree grown in the city, after it’s given its 50, 60, 80 years of shade and comfort and pleasure is greeted with a horrible demise because it’s cut into chunks and burned, or taken to the dump, and I think it has a higher and better use,” Hessenthaler said. “It has a greater destiny than being cut into firewood, so I hope a customer, when he or she buys a box will realize it’s been made out of a tree that would have otherwise been dumped in the landfill.” The California native started doing this in 1988 while living in Salt Lake City, and moved to his current location in 1993. Hessenthaler, who graduated from BYU with a degree in journalism in 1969, vacationed with his family in Cache Valley when he was younger and fell in love with the area and the mountains. “Have you ever been to Salt Lake?” Hessenthaler said when asked how he ended up in Logan. “(If so) there’s your answer. I like Cache Valley. It’s a great place. It’s colder than hell in the winter, but I like it.” He used to work in the public relations field, but “I got tired of sitting at a typewriter,” Hessenthaler quipped. Hessenthaler then opened a cabinet shop in Salt Lake City in the late-1980s, and that’s where his focus in life changed. Hessenthaler, who is still going strong despite recently being diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, was working at his cabinet shop when he

watched a man get ready to haul away 10 black walnut trees in a 40-foot trailer. Hessenthaler approached the man and found out the man’s boss had instructed him to take the trees to the dump. Hessenthaler offered the man $1,000 in cash for the trees, but the man did as his boss instructed. “And from that point on, I became aware of the incredible resource that’s available in terms of discarded city trees,” Hessenthaler explained. “Then I started buying them, and then I bought a Wood-Mizer bandsaw mill and started sawing them, so (my interest) grew
naturally. But there’s an incredible treasure, a treasure trove of unbelievable hardwoods that can’t be purchased anywhere else. The only way to get it is to saw it and dry it yourself.” Over the last 20 years, Hessenthaler said he has sawed 500,000 board feet of lumber. Hessenthaler harvests lumber from more than 20 different species of deciduous (hardwood) trees. Hessenthaler, who doesn’t work with softwood species, especially enjoys crafting items out of all kinds of fruit — “apricot wood is fantastically beautiful,” he said — nut, maple, linden and ash trees. Hessenthaler, who was featured in a 1993 ABC News report about the declining state of urban forests, joked he currently has enough wood to make a case or box a day until he is 200 years old. Hessenthaler stressed “the absolute sole source for my lumber is discarded trees.” Unlike a lot of people who make a living manufacturing trees that have been jettisoned, Hessenthaler doesn’t make custom furniture anymore. “It’s too hard to build, deliver and install,” said Hessenthaler, who grew up in Los Angeles. “Boxes are small and neat, and you can ship them; people can hold them in their hands and examine them, so I prefer boxes. But boxes (feature) an incredibly wide variety of classification of products. ... You’ll never run out of variety when you’re doing boxes.” Hessenthaler’s rather expansive warehouse is loaded with equipment and wood. He has a whopping 18 woodworking routers and multiple bandsaws and blades, sanders and buffing tools. There are nearly two dozen steps in the production process, Hessenthaler said, ranging from cutting, drying, sanding, buffing, staining and elaborate interior work. The drying process is rather lengthy, inasmuch as Hessenthaler See WOOD on Page 11

Earlier this year after about 27 straight days of not being able to see across the valley, something snapped in my brain. I looked around for a futile, yet demonstrative act to clear the air, so I decided to lease an electric car. In truth an electric car has always been further up my bucket list than the usual guy-list Ford F-350 with the chrome lady silhouettes on the mud flaps. Now just seemed the time to do it. I also considered solar panels, but because the projected financial break-even point is longer than my projected remaining years of life and because I hadn’t seen the sun in 27 days, solar didn’t hold much
There is little hope that it is an investment and there are no tax deductions. Driving a car until it falls apart has some bohemian appeal, but then you have to consider safety and reliability. Buying a new car ensures a 20-percent loss of value the minute you drive off the lot, while buying a used car is a mine field of potential problems. There aren’t many rational approaches to buying appeal. Likewise, the idea a car. The best thing that of a 50-foot-high, windyou could do for the envigeneration tower was ronment is not to get a car rejected because it would at all. annoy the neighbors.

Because it almost feels like you are driving a light bulb, you are freed from the guilt of driving to the grocery store for a single bag of apples or to the gym for a 20-minute workout.

So yeah, I got the allelectric car made by Nissan, and that’s as much of an advertisement as I want to give. About 1,300 miles later, these are the lessons learned from the electric car: 1. Range anxiety is real. There are only a few places in the country where you would have to drive more than 50 miles to get gasoline, and if you are really worried you can easily carry an extra 10 gallons in your trunk or the back of your bumper. Unless you want to tow a
big generator around, it’s hard to bring along extra electricity. In the imagined Jetsons’ future there will be quick-charge stations spaced out just like gas stations. The catch is that even what is considered a quick charge would be an intolerable wait at a gas station. The only way I see this working is if all the charging stations have their own Starbucks. You will not drive an electric car across the country or even Utah any time soon. 2. You plan more when you drive an electric car. If you are really trying to save miles, you plan your trip rather than zigzagging around town. While slow traffic and waiting at lights are still annoying, you can at least rest assured that you are not

Hessenthaler, who uses a special resin and has patents on some of the hinges he uses, sells an estimated 90 percent of his wares over the phone or at Urban Forest Wood Works, which is located at 1065 W. 600 North.

Your Stuff “If I Were Bald”

By Heather Malmberg I would never have to wash my hair I’d cut my showering time in half I wouldn’t need a blow dryer Or a curling iron Or hairspray But My head would be achingly cold in the winter On days where nose hairs freeze And no one wants to mention it But we all know they defrost When you come indoors And your nose starts To run And A lack of hair may have an effect on my social life In that I would probably never have one Because our society is full of shallow Cold hearted conformists Who don’t want people To be different From others But
