FROM THE EDITOR Isn’t the internet great? There’s a lot of wonderful stuff on there. News. Sports. Weather. Conspiracy theories. Photos of ugly people dressed in strange clothes at Walmart. Videos of stupid kids doing stupid things on skateboards in the parking lot at Walmart. There’s also a picture of Wolf Blitzer without a beard. (Just kidding ... he obviously grew that thing in his crib). For those of us who remember life without it, it’s hard to recall how we ever got along without the “Information Superhighway” running right through our living

room. And in my opinion, the best, single use of the internet is ... IMDB. Also known as the Internet Movie Database, this glorious website has allowed me to continue to live my life when I recognize someone in a movie who also made a guest appearance on a TV show I saw two decades ago. Sure, I might occasionally drive my family crazy by pausing the television or DVD until I can get on the computer and do a little sleuthing, but finding out an actor’s name and his or her entire resume always puts my mind at ease. Why do I care so much? I really don’t know. Perhaps it’s because as a child of the ’70s and ’80s I had a tendency to watch shows like “The Love Boat” that featured a boatload of new character actors each week — many of them who would

return another season or two down the line as an entirely new character. In fact, just recently I recognized someone on one of the Disney TV shows my daughter watches, but I couldn’t figure out from where. While I was initially afraid she was someone I turned down for a date in college, it turns out the actress not only made a guest appearance on “Seinfeld,” but she was actually Ross Gellar’s original lesbian ex-wife on “Friends” — a stint that lasted all of one episode before she decided to pass up one of the leading sitcoms of the day for a more “regular” acting job. I forget the actress’ name, but if you’ll give me a minute to get on IMDB ... OK, it’s Anita Barone.

all mixed up ‘Lightning Bug’ hits Heritage stage New musical kicks off June 7 “The Lightning Bug: The Musical” will be performed June 7-29, at Heritage Theatre, 2505 S. U.S. Hwy. 89 in Perry. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, with matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 15, and Saturday, June 22. Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and children. For reservations, call (435) 723-8392 daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. except Tuesdays and Sundays, or visit Directed by Kamron Klitgaard with music by Derek Myler, “The Lightning Bug: The Musical” was also written by Klitgaard. It’s 1905. The Turn of the Century. And the country is booming with new inventions including the horseless carriage, flight, Coca-Cola, and, of course, moving pictures. In Pittsburgh, Penn., The Curses Foiled Again Theatre has been a thriving business for more than 40 years, performing melo-

drama plays in front of enthused audiences every night. Then, as fate would have it, the moving pictures come to town — right next door — in the form of The Lightning Bug Nickelodeon and steal the theater’s audience. Anna (Dawn Allen), the theatre owner can’t believe she is being put out of business by a “colorless illusion,” so she tries to win the patrons back by imitating the movies, performing their play in black and white and mouthing the words while holding subtitles. Meanwhile, the owner of the Nickelodeon, Nick Lightning (Trenton Fordham), who has wanted to be a stage-actor, disguises himself as a world-famous foreign actor and joins Anna’s troupe. He has now fallen in love with Anna and she with the foreign actor, but hates Nick for taking her patrons not knowing they are the same person. Nick is finally exposed and so is the real reason for the demise of melodrama.

Utah State University’s Old Lyric Repertory Company opens the 2013 season with Dan Goggin’s musical comedy “Nunsense” at the Caine Lyric Theatre. “‘Nunsense’ is the biggest hit of the company and for the anniversary season we wanted to revive an all-time audience favorite,” says Dennis Hassan, artistic director of the OLRC and associate professor in the Caine College of the Arts at USU. The storyline of the show is simple: come support the sisters of Hoboken, whose cook, Sister Julia, child of God

(bless her heart) has accidentally poisoned most of the convent. The surviving sisters are putting on a musical variety show to raise money to bury the last four frozen nuns of the 52 dead. “The catchy tunes and quirky characters guarantee the audience an evening of frivolity and laughter,” say Lee Daily, a favorite OLRC performer and director this year for “Nunsense.”

Opening June 6, “Nunsense” runs on selected dates through Aug. 5. The 2013 season also includes “The Odd Couple,” “The Drowsy Chaperone,” “James and the Giant Peach” and “The Woman in Black.” This year marks a century at the historic Caine Lyric Theatre in downtown Logan.

There’s an understated nature to “After Earth” that’s commendable. So many big-budget, science-fiction movies try so hard to impress the audience visually that they lose much of their impact when it comes to impressing them mentally. “After Earth” features all that nifty sci-fi future tech, but never really makes it a focal point. There is a lot to like about M. Night Shyamalan’s latest directorial effort, yet the movie has problems that it has difficultly overcoming. In the future Earth has been deserted. It’s become an uninhabitable place through pollution and other human-caused catastrophes. The fall of Earth is lightly glossed over during a few minutes of opening narration. Then the narrator talks about aliens and the monsters they used to attack humans. The monsters, called Ursas, are essentially blind, except they can smell the pheromones humans excrete when they’re afraid. They can literally smell fear. Humans now live on a

Basic human emotions and instincts are what the movie is really trying its best to understand. How far can

Preston artist Brent Borup looks to the heavens to try and touch hearts

reston resident Brent Borup creates inspiring images from the comfort of a cozy, renovated garden shed in his backyard. Leaning back in the office chair next to a desk piled with prints ready to sell at the Summerfest Art Faire in June, Borup describes his journey to being a full-time artist and selling his paintings across the Western U.S. “I’ve always known I wanted to be an artist, but people always tell me ‘You can’t make a living out of it,’” Borup says. Borup is known for his patriotic and religious paintings created using a blended technique of oils and digital editing. His repertoire includes temples, landscapes and portraits of religious and historical figures. A native of the Boise area, Borup broke into the market for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints four years ago when he started painting pictures of the religion’s temples, the first being a painting of the Logan LDS Temple. Though he had done small art shows before, the first time Borup sold artwork outside of his art gallery in Preston was when he rented space at Summerfest. His prints were so popular he had to come home each night and print new ones to sell the next day. Borup’s artwork expanded to stores around town and now his paintings can be seen at Bed, Bath & Beyond and Sam’s Club locations as far away as Southern California. Borup returns to Summerfest each year to sell prints of his paintings, though he leaves the selling of the larger, more expensive framed work to his publisher. He said he likes to

some a more “Mormon Jesus.” Like many artists, he has spent years “trying to get that face just right.” Referring to his numerous portraits of Christ, Borup says, “I’m happy to be able to share that image with others.” His paintings are created using what he calls a mixed-media method. Borup starts by painting a subject with oil and then scans it into his computer to touch it up digitally. The result is a beautiful image that has a smooth, ethereal quality to it, touched with delicate hints of light in just the right places. Blending the two mediums is not as easy as touching a button, and he still calls them paintings. “Some people think that if I do it on a computer, I push a button and run it through a filter,” Borup explains. “They don’t understand the work involved. There’s still a lot of painting.” He referred to his latest creation, a portrait of Jesus Christ standing in a A native of the Boise area now living in Preston, Brent Borup’s artwork primarily focus- pathway framed by bushes and trees. es on spiritual and patriotic subjects such as (facing page) Jesus Christ, Benjamin Christ holds a staff, at the same time Franklin and LDS temples in Logan and Idaho Falls. calmly holding the viewer’s gaze as he stares straight from the painting. “I’ve had people tell me that they like it because it’s not intimidating,” STORY BY LIS STEWART • PORTRAIT BY ELI LUCERO Borup says. “It’s like he’s saying, ‘Hey, how can I help you?’” see how many pieces of his art he can “I figure it’s part of my job and my Borup says his goal is to inspire get out there. religion to expand the kingdom of After closing his art gallery a year God on earth,” Borup says. “So, that’s people with his artwork. “That’s why I do a lot of temples,” he ago, Borup moved his painting busiwhat I try to do.” says. “I think if you can have a picture ness home.

Back in the near ancient past, I was a prolific — if not distinguished — runner. I logged enough miles to join the Round the World running club and completed 10 marathons all before age 24. Then came the dark years which I refer to as IRBP (Injury, Rest, Beer and Pizza). When I snapped out of it in my early 50s, I found that everything had changed. It was as if I had been living in a nuclear fallout bunker for three decades. What was once a simple, onefoot-in-front-of-the-other activity had mutated into something almost unrecognizable. Oth-

went to the sports equipment stores to retread my feet and found that it was selling something oxymoronically named “a barefoot running shoe.” What planet had I returned to? It got worse. It turns out there are groups of people who pay lots of money to run these relays called RAGNAR. I thought RAGNAR stood for Really Awful Gnarly Numbing erwise intelligent people Agonizing Relay, but I was wrong. Actually were doing biped things Ragnar Lodbrock was that did not resemble the simple activity I so loved. some Scandinavian Viking sort of crazy I drove by one of Cache person who may or may Valley’s 32 Cross Boot Fit Camp emporiums and not have existed in hissaw people running down torical records.

There are many more ways to run these days this say they just love to spend two days in a van with 11 other sweaty people covering 200 miles in incremental chunks. To me it sounds like the worst family vacation ever. There are other groups of people paying to enjoy the porcine pleasures of running through mud without the fear of becoming bacon afterwards. I have done this a few times, but it was usually the result of taking a wrong turn on a long trail run on a rainy day. It appears there are lots of variations of these mud runs; some include actual military boot camp activities such as climbing over walls and slith-

As if this were not enough shock to my Rip Van Winkle running system, two weeks ago I saw a young woman at the gardeners’ market who looked as if she had tie-dyed not just her clothes but her body. The odd thing was that she was wearing running clothes. I’m all for self-expression, but I had to ask why she was decorated so. She said she had just come from a color run. My ’60s self wanted to raise a 1968 Olympics John Carlos/ Tommy Smith fist of soli-

darity with black power, but apparently that is not what it was about. A color run is a 5K race where they throw water-soluble dye on you. This sounds weird but it is a way to encourage first timers to experience the fun aspect of running. I approve. Really, I approve of anything that gets people off the couch, away from any of their iThings and moving in any manner. My heyday of running was way too disciplined and stoic.

Books ‘Zero Hour’ exciting addition to NUMA series By Jeff Ayers Associated Press

Clive Cussler and Graham Brown have delivered a nonstop action thriller with “Zero Hour,” the latest in the NUMA (National Underwater and Marine Agency) Files series. Kurt Austin attends a lecture in Sydney, and soon finds himself immersed in another lifeand-death struggle to save the world. A boat crashes just outside the Sydney Opera House and a helicopter flying overhead shoots at the passengers inside. Kurt rescues one of the men, and the helicopter crashes into the building. Before

the man dies, he gives Kurt sheets of paper and a word: Tartarus. According to Greek mythology, Tartarus is the deepest prison in the underworld, as far below Hades as Heaven is above Earth. Kurt soon uncovers a powerful enemy with a powerful weapon. NUMA Files fans will relish appearances by other Cussler characters including Dirk Pitt and Adm. James Sandecker. Other NUMA Files regulars like Paul Trout and his wife are given little to do, but that’s fine in the overall scope of the novel. “Zero Hour” may not be the best NUMA Files novel in the series, but it’s the most exciting.

USU museum focuses on archaeology “Utah Archaeology” is the theme of Utah State University’s Museum of Anthropology “Saturdays at the Museum” event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 1. An illustrated lecture will be presented at 1 p.m. that will take museum visitors on a virtual tour of some of the most important archaeological sites in Utah. Patrons will have the opportunity to participate in guided docent

tours of the museum’s Great Basin exhibits throughout the day and children can try their excavation skills in the museum’s dig boxes. Or they can even create split twig figurines and make Fremont pottery. “From Danger Cave to Nine Mile Canyon, Utah boasts some of the most amazing archaeology in the world,” said Candice Cravins, a museum assistant and USU archaeology

East Continued from Page 6 anarchist group, The East, which has targeted polluters in a series of let-thepunishment-fit-the-crime “jams.” Telling her patient boyfriend (Jason Ritter) she’s off to Dubai for business, Sarah actually hits the streets not far from her Washington, D.C. home — getting grubby with freegans and hobos while watching for someone whose political rants sound likely to produce action. After an enjoyable bit of improvised role-playing, she winds up at the burned-up mansion The East calls home. The group looks a bit like a cult, especially given the shaggy, Jesus-like appearance of head strategist Benji (Alexander Skarsgard), but is more of a democracy than it seems. Members like Doc (Toby Kebbell) and Izzy (Ellen Page) offer villains from their own pasts — a reckless drug manufacturer, say, whose wares injured loved ones — and together they decide how to get close enough to do that company well-publicized harm. The tidy paybacks will appeal to

many viewers: Who hasn’t thought execs who knowingly pollute waterways should have to bathe in their own slurry? But putting a secret agent in the middle of their execution allows us to live the fantasy and question its justice simultaneously. Sarah will inevitably be changed by this group. But will it be in the expected, manageable way — as her shark-like boss (Patricia Clarkson) warns, some sympathy is inevitable when you devote every waking moment to earning someone’s trust — or will she go rogue? The actors bringing this band of anarchists to life project enough wounded, uncertain self-righteousness to distance them from the generic zealots more often seen in this kind of tale, and Marling, working behind a couple of layers of role-playing, keeps audiences guessing about what Sarah actually believes. Batmanglij balances emotional tension with practical danger nicely, a must in a story whose activist protagonists can make no distinction between the personal and the political. ———

“Jack and the Beanstalk”


By Sarah Houghton There once was a farm boy named Jack Well-known to be dumb as a tack. One wonders to ask, “Who gave him the task To sell Bessie?” He brought just beans back. Jack’s mother was simply irate. She beat Jack, then those beans she ate. When morning came ‘round, Those beans found the ground Near the outhouse, in some other state.   Tho’ planting was less than romantic, The plant which sprang forth was gigantic! Jack dawdled there, blinking,

By Wells Thompson

Then climbed without thinking, Which wasn’t so rare for his antic. Up top he saw treasures galore, But took just a sword, and he swore He’d make mother pay For her arrogant way And all of the scoldings he bore.   Our sword-toting farm boy named Jack Used cold steel to “buy” Bessie back. They’re happier now, ‘Cause Jack and his cow Got freedom, and mother got jack.

By William Humphrey We’ll plant some trees and flowers, We’ll build a little home.

We’ll move out to the country. Where the kids can romp and roam.

“I don’t know but I’ve been told,” Two can live as cheap as one. So you would like to go alone, We can have a lot of fun.


To preach to a devil, Is such a waste of time.

Earth Continued from Page 7 someone be pushed? How can one let go of fear and embrace whatever is there if fear isn’t present? How does a turbulent past of violence shape one’s destiny? The movie falters when we’re left, for long stretches, with Jaden Smith out in the wilderness. Will Smith does a great job here, however, that much can’t be said for his son.

With the pen in the barn he was out of the sun. We had a lot to learn, but, it sure was fun. We changed the water and hauled the feed. My black and white pig was a Hampshire Breed.

He loved to root, waller, and get mud on his face. When goofing around he knocked over my little brother Pace. He would snort, bark, and run around. If I could teach control, he would be show bound. I taught him to drive and what he should know. But he had to make weight to go to the show. Eight days before the fair he was to light. So we fed him donuts morning, noon, and night.

You couldn’t change a devil, If your life was on the line.

We drove to the fair and the pig made weight. We found his pen, and hung his name on the gate. First show was market class, we didn’t win there. But in showmanship, Lucky and I made quite a pair.

So to Hades with all those devils, If that is where they want to be. I don’t want to be with devils, I’d rather be where men are free.

The pig was “soft,” said the judge with a smile. Next year no donuts and walk him each day for a mile. With two proud parents and the drip of a tear, I ended up with a Blue Ribbon pig, last year.

By William Humphrey You can’t change a devil, His mind is set in cement. You can’t change a devil, To Hades is where he’s bent.

When we got home we put them away. My new set of chores would start the next day. We called the one Lucky cause he would go to the fair. The pink one Butch, cause, well, he wouldn’t make it there.

My dad would help me and so would my brother. But who could forget the advice from my mother. When feeding, cleaning, and working the hogs. Don’t forget your overalls, and always wear your bogs.

“I Don’t Know” “I don’t know but I’ve been told,” That you’re the one for me. So if you want to settle down, We’ll start a family tree.

I wanted to show a pig at the fair. So my parents helped me buy a pair. We rushed to Young Ward that very night. One pig was pink the other black and white.

Jaden is out of his depth here. Kitai is a complex role — at least he should be — but Jaden gives, more or less, a one-note performance. It’s hard to ever take him seriously when he’s out there battling the savage creatures of a bygone Earth. While it was nice feeling like I wasn’t being forced to ogle futuristic technology that the filmmakers thought they were clever for making up, I did find myself wondering about its logic. With all this neat future tech, the best weapon they can come up with is a

glorified sword? Who knows how far this is in the future, and humans are choosing to fight enemies at close quarters? It doesn’t make sense. Every once in a while the movie hints at those great Shyamalan moments that we found so breathtaking in his earlier films. Yet, it never harnesses them. It feels like a weird mesh of Shyamalan’s unique style and a big-budget action, sci-fi thriller. The movie never makes a choice of what it wants to be, so it ends up being both, which is

awkward. “After Earth” had real potential to be Shyamalan’s comeback movie. In some ways we can still see that once-glorified directorial hand working with an understated frenzy. Though, the distraction of Jaden Smith’s inability to harness the role and its deeper meanings detracts from the overall experience. His scenes only serve to take you directly out of the movie. This wouldn’t be that much of a problem if Jaden’s scenes didn’t account for most of the movie.
