FROM THE EDITOR For better or worse, I’ve already done the princess thing. And just to clarify, by “the princess thing,” I mean I had a daughter who fully embraced the magical world of Cinderella, Snow White, Ariel and all the other Disney princesses. Now almost 11 years old, she has apparently outgrown her passion for tiaras, etc., and so my wife and I no longer have to purchase toys and pajamas and blankets and Halloween outfits that have apparently been endorsed by Aurora (that’s “Sleeping Beauty” in case you’re
not up on your princesses) and the rest of the gang. To be honest, though, I am unbelievably impressed by whomever it was that came up with the idea of marketing all of Disney’s princesses together. It’s like a rock band compiling a greatest hits album and making a ton of money by just repackaging a product that already existed. It’s brilliant. And it led to me somehow spending the most money I’ve ever spent on a meal in my life at Ariel’s Grotto at Disneyland, just so sweet daughter could eat a couple of strawberries and half a piece of toast while mingling with the star of “The Little Mermaid” and the brunette from “Beauty and the Beast.” But while my time has apparently come and gone, moms and dads and little girls
from all over Cache Valley will soon have the opportunity to do “the princess thing” right here in our own backyard. More information will be found in upcoming issues of Cache Magazine, but the Princess Festival that has been held in Utah Valley since 2008 is now going on the road and will be coming to the Cache County Fairgrounds on June 12-14. Of course, the princesses slated to appear aren’t exactly those of Disney fame due to trademark issues, but there are some similarities and a wide variety of activities for up-and-coming princesses and their parents, including a daddy-daughter ball.

Fishing for a good story?
Local author releases a soldier’s tale from WWII
– Cache movie critic Aaron Peck on “X-Men: Days of Future Past” (Page 7)
By Jeff Hunter Cache Magazine editor
Like any first-time author, Lynn Payne loves to hear stories about people who have read and enjoyed his inaugural novel, “The Fish Factory.” Needless to say, when a longtime friend who isn’t known for being much of a reader came up to him at church last Sunday, Payne couldn’t have been more thrilled. “He’s a great man; a busy man, who doesn’t have a lot of time to read,” Payne recalls while sitting at the kitchen table in his Trenton home. “He took the book but said, ‘I’ll try and read it, but I won’t guarantee anything.’ “Well, his wife read it, and then he took it on a trip to California. He started reading it while he Jeff Hunter/Herald Journal was gone, then when he Longtime Trenton resident Lynn Payne published his first novel, got back, he told his wife, “The Fish Factory,” about four months ago. ‘I can’t do anything else until I sit down and finish Valley 20 years ago, Payne the character of Matt, many this book.’ spent a lot of time coaching of the traits that Matt has Payne adds with a grin, baseball and football.

PET OF THE WEEK Available for adoption Luta in 1943, Stover accepts the challenge of a dangerous mission and helps thwart a Japanese plot to terrorize Alaska and the West Coast of the United States. Payne, who spent most of his career in marketing, says he had previously written poetry and short stories, but had never tried to write anything as ambitious as a 222-page novel. “I had the story in my mind for quite some time, but I just wrote it last winter (2012-13),” Payne says. “I was going to write a book each winter, so I wrote ‘The Fish Factory’ and then this winter I wrote my second book, which I still have one more chapter to finish up.” Payne and his wife, Glenna, are the parents of six children. The couple also has 15 grandchildren, and Payne said another one of his goals with “The Fish Factory” was to let them know that “they can do anything they want to do.” See STORY on Page 13

To buy into “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” you must, without any hesitation, accept its time-travel origins and all the mind-bending paradoxes that come with it. Time travel is a double-edged sword that is used with some great success here, but it also means wiping out much of the movie story arcs that have come before. “Days of Future Past” is the studio’s way of completely forgetting “X-Men: The Last Stand” even happened. Time travel is handy when there are movies in the past you’d rather forget that you made. Where “Days of Future Past” really excels is in its unflinching attitude of not caring who is watching. This is a movie that caters to the hardcore “X-Men” fan. It packages together so many scenes, references and jokes that only fans will understand that you have to wonder if the X-Men layman will comprehend any of it. The joy of the movie comes when the past and future finally meet up. A screenwriting tactic to get everyone,

A PLACE AT SUMMERFEST Andi Jorgensen is the featured artist for this year’s show at the Logan Tabernacle
ocal artist Andi Jorgensen – probably like many artists – has a house decorated with her artwork and stories to tell about each one. Each painting explains a bit about her life and passion to depict ideas and feelings with paint. There’s the waterfalls series she created with pairs of tall, skinny paintings depicting fjords in Norway, where she lived for many years and raised a family. “You go through a fjord and it’s an immediate thousand feet, and then it’s just a small, narrow waterfall, and it goes all the way down,” Jorgensen says as she explains her work. On another wall is a pair of paintings of the inside of the LDS Conference Center in Salt Lake City. The first is a realistic portrayal of the wide, curving room with thousands of seats filled with people. The second is an impressionistic version of the same view, filled with bright colors and squiggles depicting the energy of the room. “I did the wild colors because when the Tabernacle Choir starts singing or there’s a beautiful talk, I’m just so moved,” Jorgensen says. “And I wanted to express the warmth and excitement that I felt.” There’s also the set of three paintings called “Spirit of the Fair” she created for Logan’s annual Summerfest Arts Faire, which will be used on the posters and branding for this year’s event, scheduled for June 12-14. Jorgensen is the official featured artist for 2014. The pictures show the Logan LDS Tabernacle overlooking the grounds and the iconic white tents spread around it, with balloons floating merrily in the foreground. “They were looking for something that they could use for the poster that would show the spirit of Summerfest,” Jorgensen explains. “And so I didn’t want it to be too representational. I wanted it to be fun.” Jorgensen grew up in Massachusetts and started taking art lessons from a neighbor when she was 8 years old. Her father, aunt and grandmother were artists, as well. In
A native of Massachusetts, artist and art instructor Andi Jorgensen is now happy to call Cache Valley home.
the basement of Jorgensen’s home, a tribute hangs on the wall to her artistic family in the form of her father’s old paint box, which she found after he died. The old, dilapidated box hangs open with an assortment of old tubes of paints and splatters of color, along with photographs of family members. A sketch of her father, done by his sister, hangs on it, as well, over the top of a painting of the sea he never finished. Jorgensen graduated from Smith College in Massachusetts and moved to Florida to teach high school art for a year before marrying a Norwegian man. They raised their family in Europe, first in Norway and then in Switzerland. Jorgensen continued teaching art at the International School of Geneva and later in Florida again. When her husband died, she moved to Logan to be near family and fell in love immediately with the Rocky Mountains. “I love mountains, and on the way to Brigham (City) and the valley, the mountains are so beautiful,” she says. An experience during Jorgensen’s first visit here made her appreciate the people as well, she says. Her daughter dropped her off at the Book Table while she went farther downtown to do some shopping. However, the store was closed and a clerk was just locking up, so Jorgensen was left out in the cold with no coat, she explains. “She said, ‘I’m so sorry, I can’t let you in. We’re officially closed,’” Jorgensen recalls. “But then she kindly said, ‘I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. I’m going to get my car in the back parking lot, and I’m going to come around, and you can sit in the warm car until your daughter comes back.’” “And I thought, My goodness. I like this town,” Jorgensen adds. She now spends her time with the Utah Watercolor Society and at the Cache Valley Center for the Arts, where she supervises the Visual Arts program. The program offers art classes for children ages 5-11, teenagers and adults. Jorgensen will also be at Summerfest Arts Faire next month showcasing her work.

Examples of Jorgensen’s artwork include (clockwise from left): “Spirit of the Fair,” which will be featured at the Summerfest Arts Faire in June, “Intersection,” “Pure from the Source” and “Baroque in Bloom.”

‘Words and Pictures’ is a very witty adult rom-com LOS ANGELES (AP) — If it wasn’t for the charming top-liners who can make literary dialogue sound sexy in their sleep, the war in Fred Schepisi’s “Words and Pictures” would have to be called off after the opening skirmish. The battlefield is a country prep school where Clive Owen’s drunken English teacher and Juliette Binoche’s prickly art instructor square off, then pair off, in an amusing school-wide debate over whether literature or painting is best. The way the challenge between these two sharp minds will play out is the only thing that isn’t a foregone conclusion in the smooth-asvodka screenplay, a middle-brow mashing together of “Dead Poets Society” and a rom-com for audiences allergic to vulgarity and sex scenes. The film gives Binoche, who plays Italian painter Dina Delsanto, a chance to show off her own artwork, which is liberally displayed in the film and which looks considerably better and more painterly than simple props. Working with portraiture and large-scale abstraction, she plays a famous artist struck with rheumatoid arthritis and increasingly unable to move her arms and hands freely. Her solution is to use industrial-size paint dispensers hanging from overhead hooks which she can move artistically without fine brushwork. All these difficulties more or less justify her fierce anti-social attitude, which Binoche is able to carry off without

becoming an unpleasant character. Owen pulls out a surprisingly literate side of himself in the role of Jack Marcus, an irrepressibly outspoken English teacher and wordsmith who, on the verge of being ousted from the school for alcoholic disorderliness, does something repulsively unethical to save his job. It’s a bombshell on the order of discovering Mr. Chips has copied his graduate thesis. Owen is spectacular in maneuvering Jack’s way out of this mess, in which his grown-up son
is involved. It’s a tribute to his inner appeal that he overcomes the cruelty of having to wear a grubby beard, heavy glasses and abominable corduroy jackets. One can sympathize with Jack’s boredom with the faculty who won’t play word games with him, exception made for the wry old Walt (Bruce Davison). But with the spotlight focused on Jack and Dina, there seems to be little interest in developing peripheral characters, and students and

As is usually the case, Wolverine is the emotional center of the film. He bridges the two worlds together, both past and future. It helps matters that Jackman doesn’t appear to have aged a day since he took on the role of Wolverine in 2000. Providing the emotional heft that the movie really needs belongs to McAvoy and Fassbender, reprising their roles as the young foes who would grow to be great friends. While the film does play to its strengths, mainly its ridiculously large ensemble cast, the time travel convenience is its sticking point. Though well written, the paradoxes are aplenty, and they remain even when the movie hits the final credits. You either accept it, or you don’t.

‘Godzilla’ opens with $93.2 million LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Godzilla” has smashed its way to the top of the box office. The 3-D monster movie from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures had the second-largest debut of the year this weekend with $93.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Godzilla” trails Disney-Marvel’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which opened with $95 million in April, and sits just above “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” which debuted with $91.6 million this month. Paying homage to the 60-year-old franchise in tone and spectacle, the latest iteration continues the legend of 1954 Japanese original — Ishiro Honda’s “Goji-

ra.” Reviews of the film were positive — it earned a “fresh” rating from review aggregator RottenTomatoes.com, with 72 percent of film critics responding positively. Legendary Pictures President Jon Jashni said the film did better than expected partly because it was “starting to get sampled even by those who didn’t think it would necessarily be for them. They didn’t have nostalgic feelings for it.” He said friends or family members likely recommended the movie to those viewers. Jashni added that the success of “Godzilla” is “validating” after last year’s “Pacific Rim” and “Jack the Giant Slayer” performed below expectations for the Warner-Legendary team. The film, directed by Gareth Edwards,

also helped eliminate the bad memory of another of the franchise’s remakes, Roland Emmerich’s “Godzilla,” released in 1998 and starring Matthew Broderick. Backed by Sony, the film opened with $44 million. Two other reboots — “Godzilla 1985” and “Godzilla 2000” — also flopped. “Godzilla” knocked last weekend’s No. 1 hit, Universal Pictures “Neighbors,” down to No. 2 in its second weekend. The raunchy Seth Rogen and Zac Efron-led comedy earned $26 million, bringing its domestic total to $91.5 million. Rounding out the top three was “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” with $17 million. So far it’s earned a total of $172 million domestically.

Story Continued from Page 3 “If you want to sit down and be a writer, you can do it,” he says. “There’s nothing magical about it. You just have to want to do it. And now I have one grandson who’s taken it to heart and is writing little stories.” Although “The Fish Factory” is self-published, Payne still had to submit the manuscript to Xlibris before they would print it. He says during that process, he was talking to one of Xlibris’ editors on the phone and asked him, “Has anyone else besides you read it? Because this is going to cost me a little bit of money.” When told that his boss had read the manuscript, as well, Payne asked the editor to ask his boss what he thought of “The Fish Factory.” But when the editor referred to Payne’s book by its title, the boss was perplexed. “He said, ‘What book was that?
Dairy, where 600 cows are milked each day and several acres are farmed for alfalfa, silage corn, wheat and barley. Gibbons’ three sons work with him on the farm, and he enjoys his family and grandchildren. Gibbons is active in his church, community and the dairy industry, including president of the Dairy Producers of Utah, president of the Governors Agriculture Advisory Board, and active in other dairyrelated organizations, committees and associations. Friday, May 30 USU String Program: Utah State students who are studying the string family of instruments will present a delightful performance from the works of renowned composers.
Ohhh … you mean, Matt Stover?’ And that’s what I wanted to do. I wanted to create an individual, so you knew Matt Stover once you read the book.” A big fan of the classic “To Kill a Mockingbird,” Payne says he wanted to deliver an unforgettable character along the lines of Atticus Finch or “Boo” Radley. “I also really wanted to convey that if you try really hard and work to be a good person, that even with all of the adversity around us, good things happen,” Payne declares. “That’s what happens with Matt in the book. He doesn’t try to be better than anyone else at anything, but because of how hard he’s worked in life, the things he’s done and the upbringing he’s had, good things happen to him.” ——— Published under the name L. Gilbert Payne, “The Fish Factory” can be purchased online at bookstore.xlibris. com in hardcover ($22.99), softcover ($15.99) or e-book ($3.99). The book is also available at amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com in various forms.

Now it is time to sort through them and determine which are contributing to our own betterment and which ones are holding us back. Come learn from Aaron Preece the sorting, cleaning and deleting tools that will make those ideas, thoughts and voices in your head, your own. 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 littletheatrerecipes. blogspot.com for more information.
