A self-portrait by Zachary Proctor — For the USU graduate student, painting is not only a skill, but a passion. He views the world in terms of canvas and color, and interprets with an artist’s mind. “I think as a kid I always enjoyed building things, and making things,” he says. “... Painting, specifically, I don’t know what it was; it just felt like a good fit. I just enjoyed the muscle of it, I guess.” Read about Zachary and his artistic journey on Page 8.

HIS WEEK I GOT STUCK on a website called www.pass iveaggressivenotes.com, and it made me think of all the notes I used to write and receive when I was a kid (although the ones I remember were mostly nice and loving, not like what you’ll find on this website). I’ve saved a lot of notes from my mom, dad and grandma, and it was just a few years ago I made myself throw away all the notes I’d saved from high school. Back before texting was an option — or before people really even had cell phones — we wrote notes (on honest-to-goodness paper!) to each other and passed them around class, in the halls, or left them in each others’ lockers. Notes were the main form of communication when you weren’t allowed to

talk or you didn’t have time to stop and makes plans for the weekend. I remember that a couple certain friends and I would write back and forth throughout an entire class, so by the end of the week we’d have an entire notebook full of conversations. My favorite notes, though, were those written by my dad. He would sometimes leave me little poems before he went to work, especially in the summer, so I would find them when I woke up and went into the kitchen for breakfast. He must have gotten it from my grandma because she, too, liked to write me little rhyming notes telling me she loved me. There’s just nothing better than a handwritten note from someone you love. It doesn’t measure up to a text message by a long shot. Have a great weekend, everyone! — Jamie Baer Nielson Cache Magazine editor

Double Stars ...

‘Jewels of the Heavens’

T

HE CACHE Valley Stargazers will host their monthly meeting at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 11, in Room 244 of the ScienceEngineering-Research (SER) Building on the USU campus. Tom Westre will talk about “Double Stars: Jewels of the Heavens.” Everyone is invited. For more information, visit www.cachestargazers.org or e-mail cache.stargazers @gmail.com. The Cache Valley Stargazers are a local astronomy club that provides a venue for people interested in astronomy and the night sky to connect with other people with similar interests. They meet on the second Friday of every month to talk and learn about astronomy, and to observe

Youth Shakespeare kids up to all sorts of mischief I

Heather King as Olivia and Rose JacksonSmith as Viola share a somewhat uncomfortable moment in Logan Youth Shakespeare’s production of “Twelfth Night.”

N THEIR FIRST FULL-LENGTH production, two casts of Logan Youth Shakespeare actors between the ages of 10 and 18 will perform “Twelfth Night” at 6 p.m. June 11 and 12 at the Logan Arthouse and Cinema, 795 N. Main. Concessions will be available at intermission. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for students and ages 5 to 18. No children younger than 5 will be admitted. What do you do when your ship sinks and you think your twin brother and only relative is gone forever? If you are the practical and well-spoken Viola, you impersonate your brother to get a job as a pageboy for the powerful, handsome and lovesick Duke Orsino. It seems like a good idea, until Viola develops an enormous crush that threatens to blow her cover. Orsino sends Viola as a messenger to the object of his obsessive desire, the Countess Olivia, who soon develops an enormous crush on the “pageboy” who is, of course, really Viola. Meanwhile, a host of nutty characters mooching off Olivia and Orsino are up to all sorts of mischief in one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies, “Twelfth Night” or “What You Will.”

together when the weather permits. Anyone with an interest in astronomy or a desire to learn more about the constellations and night sky is welcome to join. The club’s goal is to provide a quality astronomical experience for everyone, regardless of age or astronomical expertise. Everyone from absolute beginners to seasoned deep-sky observers are invited. The monthly club meetings feature regularly scheduled events ranging from talks covering the latest news in astrophysics, to telescope clinics that diagnose troubles you’re having with that scope in your closet, to discussions about the best way to find and see the greatest splendors of the night sky from your own backyard.

Step back to the wild, wild West S

Nikki Baum and Loren Honeycutt as Beatrice and Ben, the famous word-sparring duo, in the Heritage Center’s Wild West Shakespeare production of “A Whole Lotta Fussin’ Over Nothin’.”

HAKESPEARE, OR perhaps his goofy cousin, returns to the American West Heritage Center in Wellsville with this year’s comedy production of “A Whole Lotta Fussin’ Over Nothin’,” a melodrama adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing” by Logan resident Wendi Hassan. The show opens June 17 and runs most Fridays and Saturdays through August. The show begins at 7 p.m., but viewers are encouraged to come as early as 5 for Wild West activities including wagon rides, tomahawk throwing, steer roping, panning for gold and more. Guests can also add a chuckwagon dinner, provided by Elements Restaurant, for $10. The show itself costs $10 ($8 for children; children younger than 6 are strongly discouraged from attending). Reservations are required; call 245-6050. For tickets, or to find out more about specific dates and times, visit www.awhc.org.

T Also playing: “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)” features three actors who take on the Herculean task of re-enacting the entire repertoire of Shakespeare in less than two hours. “It’s Shakespeare at warp speed,” says director Jim Christian. “Shakespeare purists will love it, and those who have never read Shakespeare will consider it a light, user-friendly version.” The OLRC production will play in repertory: • Friday, June 11, 7:30 p.m. • Saturday, June 12, 7:30 p.m. • Saturday, June 19, 2 p.m. • Saturday, June 19, 7:30 p.m. • Wednesday, June 23, 7:30 p.m. • Friday, June 25, 7:30 p.m. • Saturday, July 10, 2 p.m. • Saturday, July 10, 7:30 p.m. • Wednesday, July 14, 7:30 p.m. • Thursday, July 22, 7:30 p.m. • Friday, July 30, 7:30 p.m.

HE OLD LYRIC Repertory Company will debut the British comedy “Blithe Spirit” on Wednesday, June 16, at the Caine Lyric Theatre, 28 W. Center St., Logan. The second of four summer productions presented by the company, “Blithe Spirit” starts at 7:30 p.m. and plays June 16-18, 24, 26, July 15, 23 and 29. An additional matinee showing will be offered at 2 p.m. June 26. Tickets are available by calling or visiting the Caine School of the Arts Box Office in the Chase Fine Arts Center on the USU campus, 797-8022; at the Caine Lyric Theatre Ticket Office, open from 1 to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday; or online at boxoffice.usu.edu. For more information on the OLRC’s 2010 season, visit the csa.usu.edu/olrc2009.aspx. Written by English playwright Noel Coward, “Blithe Spirit” tells the story of novelist Charles Condomine, who is haunted by the ghost of his dead wife as she stops at nothing to reclaim him. Charles is the only one able to see the ghost, and the comedy unfolds as Charles’ dead wife does her best to disrupt his current marriage. Director Lynda Linford said although the play is whimsical, there is a deeper meaning behind the comedy. Written in England during World War II, “Blithe Spirit” is a story of hope, regeneration and rejuvenation, she said. Linford teaches theater at USU and has both acted and directed for the OLRC for 20 years.

A séance with consequences: From left, Phillip Lowe as Charles Condomine, Amanda Mahoney as Elvira, Keri Hostetler Larsen as Madame Arcati and Colleen Baum as Ruth in the Old Lyric Repertory Company’s production of “Blithe Spirit,” opening June 16 at the Caine Lyric Theatre.

“Noel Coward offers a fiction to make loss bearable and teaches a universal message, not to trivialize death, but to offer a whimsical situation to laugh at it,” she said. First performed in 1941 in London, “Blithe Spirit” enjoyed success in Britain and on Broadway. The play has also

been revived and performed on Broadway throughout the 1970s, 1980s and, most recently, in 2009. Featured in the major roles in the OLRC production are Keri Hostetler Larsen (Madame Arcati), Phillip R. Lowe (Charles Condomine), Colleen Baum (Ruth) and Amanda Mahoney (Elvira).

Film New this week “The A-Team” Rated PG-13 ★★★ “Overkill is underrated,” says Hannibal Smith, leader of “The A-Team,” while planning a particularly elaborate and explosive scheme to trap a bad guy. Director and co-writer Joe Carnahan apparently subscribes to this school of thought, as well. If you’re looking for subtlety, look elsewhere. Carnahan’s big-screen version of the ’80s TV series is ridiculously overthe-top, full of wild helicopter chases and exploding sport utility vehicles and tumbling cargo containers. At times it feels like little more than a cacophony of automatic gunfire and shattered glass. Then again, you shouldn’t really expect anything else given the source material. Mainly it’s just flat-out fun, with a cheeky sense of humor — way more enjoyable than you might expect when you consider the ignominious history of movies inspired by TV shows. Carnahan keeps things moving; the film’s fluid editing is especially noticeable during the big set pieces — impossibly complex, intricately timed missions that the team makes look easy. The strength of the cast helps: Liam Neeson as Hannibal, the team’s cigar-chomping mastermind; Bradley Cooper, an ideal choice to play charmer Templeton “Face” Peck; and “District 9” star Sharlto Copley, bringing equal amounts of humor and danger to the role of “Howlin’ Mad” Murdock. Even mixed martial arts star Quinton “Rampage” Jackson offers a solid presence, filling the intimidating shoes of Mr. T to play B.A. Baracus. PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence throughout, language and smoking. 118 min.

Still playing “Get Him to the Greek” Rated R ★★★1⁄2 Finally this summer, a movie that lives up to its hype. This is a complete blast, a much-needed breath of fresh air — well, as much fresh air as you can get in crowded clubs, packed rock shows and trashed hotel

suites. But you get the idea. Its energy is what’s so refreshing, its lack of pretension or self-seriousness, especially during a season of bloated, boring blockbusters. Like the 2008 hit “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” which inspired it, and like the other stand-out Judd Apatow productions such as “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” ‘’Knocked Up” and “Superbad,” ‘’Get Him to the Greek” is primarily here to offer up a good time, with rapid-fire jokes, great pacing and (of course) a litany of clever pop-culture references. But there’s always that layer of humanity and sweetness that sneaks in, providing some heart along with the raunchiness. Russell Brand’s performance was one of the funniest, most memorable parts of “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” and here he reprises the role of preening British rock star Aldous Snow. Jonah Hill co-stars as the young record executive who must escort him from London to Los Angeles for a 10th-anniversary concert at the Greek Theatre. Naturally, this does not go as planned. R for strong sexual content and drug use throughout, and pervasive language. 107 min. “Splice” Rated R ★★1⁄2 Director Vincenzo Natali’s Frankenstein tale is pure potluck — a pinch of braininess, a bit of gothic terror, a morsel of gross-out horror and a touch of kinky sex fantasy. The parts sometimes don’t fit that gracefully. Yet the movie’s occasional bolts-in-the-neck crudeness is offset by its wicked humor, really cool effects and a fair number of genuine scares as the laboratory offspring of two cocky scientists grows from cute little freak to sensuous monster. Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley play possibly the dumbest super-geniuses ever on screen, who move from combining animal DNA into useful new critters to adding human genes to the recipe. The result quickly grows into a gorgeous femme fatale (Delphine Chaneac), roughly human in appearance but with birdlike lower legs, enhanced strength and agility and serious mommy-and-daddy issues. Natali composes some truly striking images around this

New this week!

“The Karate Kid” Rated PG ★★ Fellow children of the ’80s: Merely pondering the possibility of a “Karate Kid” remake tears at the very fiber of our adolescence. Nevertheless, a new version is upon us. Director Harald Zwart (“Agent Cody Banks”) hits all the same notes and adheres closely to Robert Mark Kamen’s original 1984 script, down to a sweep-theleg moment in the finale. Details have been tweaked in Christopher Murphey’s new script, including the setting: Instead of moving from New Jersey to Los Angeles because of his single mom’s new job, our young hero moves from Detroit to Beijing, where he promptly incurs the wrath of the local thugs and learns martial arts to protect himself. (And by the way, it’s now kung fu.) But one of the biggest changes of all is the creature — though the ethical idiocy of Polley and Brody’s characters and the movie’s gradual devolution into standard horror territory undermines this science project gone wrong. R for disturbing elements including strong sexuality, nudity, sci-fi violence and language. 104 min. “Marmaduke” Rated PG ★1⁄2 Seven-year-olds are the target audience for this talkingdog extravaganza, based on the long-running comic strip, and no

character’s age. Ralph Macchio was what, like, 35 when he starred in the original? But he looked 16, as his character was, so he seemed like a good fit. Now the character, Dre, is 12 — as is the film’s star, Jaden Smith. But with his pretty face and slight build, Smith looks about 9. It’s distracting. So neither the fighting nor the romance with a girl who’s out of his league — two key components of “The Karate Kid” — makes sense. Still, we must watch Dre go through the motions of learning from Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), the handyman in the building where he and his mother, Sherry (Taraji P. Henson), now live. Chan is solid in an extremely different role, one that’s much more serious and understated than his well-known, playful persona. PG for bullying, martial arts action violence and some mild language. 135 min. one else. Adults, meanwhile, will have to endure groan-inducing puns, some seriously cheesy green-screen effects and a hokey, feel-good ending. We know we’re in trouble early when Marmaduke (voiced by Owen Wilson) climbs into bed with his owners, Phil (Lee Pace) and Debbie (Judy Greer), and passes gas, prompting one of many exasperated, sitcommy cries of “Marma-DUKE!” Later on, there is the obligatory who-let-thedogs-out joke. But somewhere in there is a clever nugget of an

idea: the dog park as a canine version of high school. Once Marmaduke and his family move from Kansas to Orange County, Calif., for Phil’s new job with an organic pet-food company, the 200-pound Great Dane must learn to make friends in a totally different environment. Mazie, a tomboyish Australian shepherd voiced huskily by Emma Stone, becomes Marmaduke’s first friend and explains the various cliques to him. While he falls in with Mazie and the mutts, he dares to have a crush on Jezebel (Fergie), a Collie who happens to be the girlfriend of the leader of the pedigrees (Kiefer Sutherland). It’s “The Outsiders,” with fur. PG for some rude humor and language. 93 min. “Shrek Forever After” Rated PG ★1⁄2 Given that this is the first film in the “Shrek” franchise in 3-D, it’s surprisingly flat — and we’re not just talking about the look of it. This fourth and allegedly final installment in the series is lifeless, joyless and woefully devoid of the upbeat energy that distinguished the earlier movies — well, at least the first two. If “Shrek the Third” from 2007 felt tired, “Shrek Forever After” is practically narcoleptic. Brief bursts of manic energy give way to long, heavy stretches that drag. Most of the hackneyed pop culture references of its predecessors are gone, mercifully, but so is the fun. This time, the big, bad ogre (voiced as always by Mike Myers) is having a mid-life crisis — not exactly a hoot for the kids in the audience, and their parents can suffer through that at home for free. As for the animation, presenting it in 3-D doesn’t add a whole lot. This is not a deeply immersive experience; more often, it consists of stuff being flung at you in gimmicky fashion. And the frustrating part is, the “Shrek” movies didn’t need an added dimension: They already had an impressive visual scheme all their own. Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas return to the voice cast. PG for mild action, some rude humor and brief language. In 3-D and IMAX 3-D. 93 min. — All reviews by The Associated Press


I

T WOULDN’T BE summer if we weren’t getting sequels, remakes and TV shows in movie form. As you already know, the new “ATeam” film is based on the ’80s TV show of the same name. This time production values are through the roof and the violence has been amped up from the family-friendly show we all remember. Here the A-Team — comprised of Hannibal (Liam Neeson), Face (Bradley Cooper), Murdock (Sharlto Copley) and B.A. Baracus (UFC fighter Quinton “Rampage” Jackson) — hasn’t become “Soldiers of Fortune” yet. They’re running covert missions for the U.S. government. Hannibal Smith is the brains of the organization. Always planning, his strategies, no matter how crazy, end up successful. When Hannibal and his team are called on to procure stolen U.S. mint plates, which are being used illegally to print U.S. money, he comes up with a plan involving everything from airbags to super-strong magnets. That’s the A-Team for you: Like MacGyver, but on a more global level. Planning is everything. “A-Team” plays out like a typical action movie, but has a few throwbacks to the old TV show that might excite fans. Mr. T, who famously played B.A.

The Reel Place By Aaron Peck

Baracus in the ’80s, has spoken out against the film saying it’s become way too filled with hard violence. Even though it’s rated PG-13, adults who remember the show fondly and have kids now probably want to steer away from taking younger children. This isn’t the familyfriendly show anymore. Speaking of action, “The ATeam” has plenty of it. When it comes to gigantic action set pieces, it excels. Sure, a lot of it is CGI, but the camera moves so quickly and the CGI

★★★ “The A-Team” Rated PG-13

is so good, it’s hard to tell. The movie does suffer from the modern action cliché of shakycam hand-to-hand combat scenes where you never know who is punching who, with the camera cutting so fast it’s hard to tell what’s going on at all. When the camera pans back to take in the scope of the elaborate set pieces, the movie takes on an awe-inspiring feel, but close up it could be any modern action film. Like so many of these movies, the villains here are pretty bland — their machine guns never hit anyone, and they monologue endlessly before they’re about to kill someone, which ultimately proves to be their downfall.

Hannibal and his team have been set up. After completing more than 80 successful missions for the U.S. government, they’re now being held in maximum security prisons around the world because layers of double-

crossing government lackeys have descended upon them. The movie plays out with Hannibal and his team never knowing exactly who is behind the plot until the very end. I have to hand it to the movie: I really didn’t see it coming. Kudos for keeping the audience in suspense when so many other films like this telegraph exactly what’s coming. When I said “The A-Team” follows your typical action film storylines, it’s because it does. That doesn’t make it a bad movie, as a lot of the scenes and dialogue are quite inventive, but it doesn’t make it a revolutionary one, either. Having said that, we’re not looking for a revolutionary film here anyway, but one that will keep our attention and help us reminisce about our childhood when we watched the original TV series.

‘A-Team’ just a typical action flick


achary or Utah State University graduate student Zachary Proctor, painting is not only a skill, but a passion. He views the world in terms of canvas and color. Interprets with an artist’s mind. Thinks with a well-trained brush. Doesn’t conform to your mother’s idea of a “good” painter. He’s much better than that. Zachary knew he was good in high school, but never thought painting would be a lucrative path. His parents lobbied for graphic designer or architect, but he painted anyway. “I think as a kid I always enjoyed building things and making things,” he said. “I always enjoyed drawing and creating architectural plans and then building them. Painting, specifically, I don’t know what it was; it just felt like a good fit. I just enjoyed the muscle of it, I guess. The dirtiness of it and what happens while you’re doing it. The effects, the reactions that it has to what you do. The forgivingness of it is really kind of a cool thing.” After graduating from Skyline High School in 1995, Zachary went on to serve a two-year LDS mission. Following his return he settled into classes at the University of Utah and found a job at Primary Children’s Medical Center as a sort-of day counselor in residential treatment. He was able to paint while he worked the graveyard shift. “There’s not really a track to be a painter,” he said. “If you want to be a doctor or a lawyer there’s a track that you get on and there are certain schools you go to. And then when you graduate there’s a route you take from the school you studied at to the institution you work at. But with a painter it’s like you’re out floating in the ocean. No one is really holding your hand telling you, ‘OK, now you’ve got to do this for that, or 10 paintings for that gallery.’ So I didn’t really know if there was a future. “In high school I didn’t really know what it would lead to. When I got home from my mission I was just feeling things out. (Painting) is not really conducive

ro

to raising a family, and a lot of people told me not to do art. Probably because I wasn’t really good at it and they didn’t want me to struggle. But I took a couple art classes at the U and fell in love with it. So I decided I would devote 10 years to giving it a try.” As an undergrad he began making money off his paintings. Galleries wanted his work on the walls and customers sought him out for family portraits. Suddenly painting was paying the bills for this artist. He was doing exactly what he wanted and was bringing home enough green to live and enjoy, opening a whole

new set of doors. This was no longer a hobby, but a career. By the time Zachary graduated from the UofU in 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in painting and drawing, he was comfortable with his path. Becoming more and more successful doing what he enjoys, the money made his dream a reality, but he never put the words “success” and “money” in the same thought. Success never came because of money, he said. “Once I decided to do this I went for the purest, idealist route. And if that didn’t work I would start to do commercial art or graphic design, a business sort of (option),” Zachary said. “I haven’t had to do it. I haven’t had a job for six or seven years. I guess you can be a painter and make money.” Having shown his work in California, Salt Lake City and even Maine, Zachary is well seasoned at seeing his art in galleries. He has never approached a gallery,


octor: One artist’s journey to success though; they have always come to him. His painting subject preference is people. The expressive form of a person can give a painter an endless supply of emotion, he said. “People can project themselves into a painting,” Zachary said. “When you’re doing a large painting with full figures, people can kind of resonate. That’s how we interact with the world. They’re people and we’re people and we project ourselves in stories and movies. We go to movies and watch people and we think of ourselves as one of the characters. I kind of see it (like) that with a painting, where there are characters and maybe you see yourself as one of them and you relate to it. It’s a lot easier to tell a story with people than it is with apples and oranges.” When he began drawing and painting he would put on the paper or canvas exactly how the world was. It wasn’t until later in life that he figured out he could interpret the world and turn it into what he envisioned, not merely what he saw. So he pieced things together — if a face wasn’t the way he wanted, he would use his creative license to change it. This introduced him to his painting form, contemporary realism. He takes an idea (in this case a face) and morphs it into his concept of perfection. He’s altering reality, but it’s still true, still honest. “I do paint from photographs; I paint from life and things out of my head. But it is kind of a sort of stew of all (kinds) of stuff that come together,” he said. “Painting faces is usually one of the hardest things to paint. When you’re painting someone that’s looking right at you, if you’re a centimeter off there or a quarter of an inch off here, it starts to look tricky. There’s a lot in the identity of a person. The variety of faces you get is pretty fascinating. The expression, emotions and identity that people attach to, it’s fun to think about. “I’m moving into the direction where I paint things as I want to see them, or as I want them to be. I’m less concerned

Zachary Proctor touches up a self-portrait in his studio at Utah State University on Wednesday. with looking at something and making it exactly like that. I’m more interested in interpreting it and expressing the way I want to see it or the way I want to remember it. It’s been an interesting transition and challenging sometimes.” Inspiration comes in many forms for Zachary. He enjoys the symphony, movies and theater, although he says he’s no good at those forms of art. He can see a good movie and it will make him want to go paint. All of these other creative outlets fuse into what he does and what he creates. He describes his journey to Utah State University as an “it-just-happened” event. Making no big plan to attend graduate school, let alone in Logan, Zachary applied after the last minute. He initially was invited up to give a lecture and fell in

love with the area. “I thought maybe this would be a good opportunity to break some rules and challenge myself,” he said. “When I came up here last fall I thought this would be a good time to start making my paintings rather than making paintings for other people.” Zachary has created his own little “creative cave,” as he describes it. He can come to Logan and do what he does and nobody can really interact with it. He has found the quiet and inspiration he needs to work on his current project, a series of 100 24-by-24-inch canvases of just faces. He’s on number 35. With his dog Sage relaxing on her oversized pillow in the corner of his studio, Zachary sets to work. As in the beginning, he won’t be thinking about the

money. He’ll be painting for himself, how he sees it. And hat’s all he’s ever wanted. “I know a lot of artists want to be remembered, they want to be famous, they want money, they want to hang in certain galleries or museums,” he said. “I don’t really have any aspiration for fame or money. I want to be at a point where I can paint what I want to paint and be comfortable. That’s kind of an ambiguous term for some people. I just want to be able to wake up and do what I want to do and never let that passion go away, be this 75year-old man and be just as passionate as a 30-year-old. So I think if you attach success to things or spaces you find yourself disappointed when you get there.”

Volunteer nation

Y

OU KNOW HOW WE could really reduce government spending, improve foreign relations and probably reduce global warming? Get rid of politicians. We don’t need to reduce the cost of police, firefighters, schools, health care and road builders; we need to get rid of the people who yammer about these things for a career. Watching just about any 30 minutes of C-Span should convince you of this. The people who are yelling the loudest about runaway government spending are, ironically, paid by the government. There is one thing they yammer about of which I approve: past and current presidents campaigning on platforms extolling the virtues of faith-based community groups and the need for volunteerism. Let’s bring that home. If we can trust the safety of this country to a volunteer army, we sure ought to be able to get by with a volunteer government. Soldiers do get paid a little, but not nearly enough. They endure it because it is a short-term service to their country. Politicians, in principle, do the same thing, but get paid a lot more while risking little. I know politicians still don’t make professional sports-star salaries. Many of them actually spend more money getting into office than they make while in office. However, everything they do make comes out of tax dollars. Plus the whole election extravaganza is a colossal waste of money that could be replaced by a simple volunteer process. Let’s take a look at a couple of examples closer to home — the LDS Church, for example. Well organized and fiscally sound with a relatively sane, happy membership, the church is primarily run by rotating volunteer leaders and teachers on the local level. Missionaries spread the word as a volunteer service. On the other hand, the Catholic Church pays, clothes and houses clergy. It owns its own semi-country. It is also implicated in the Spanish Inquisition and current worldwide scandals of an extremely seedy nature. Another clear win for volunteerism. Or model government after the Peace Corps. Just having the word “peace” associated with govern-

ment would be a step forward. In fact, instead of calling it politics, we could just call it the Peace Corps. I know the name is already taken, but with all the money we’ll be saving, we could buy the name. The Peace Corps could change its name to the Military Standoff Corps, the Cease Fire Corps or something similar. Volunteers might not be the smartest or most qualified persons for the job, but they are more likely to get things done in an expeditious manner because they have other things to do. Nobody would have the time to filibuster if they really needed to get home in time for the kids’ baseball games. Weekends and holidays would be reserved for family, church and lawn care so debates would have to be short. Without the possibility of making a career out of it, even campaigns would be shorter and less flashy. Millions of hours of television would be freed up for more useful things such as an extra season of “Lost” or World Cup soccer replays.

I

RETURNED FROM my first trip to the Czech Republic at the end of May. This was a cycling trip that included seven days of biking over hilly terrain along the Austrian and Czech border. In addition, I had a day in Vienna and one in Prague. This trip reminded me of biking in Tuscany in 2004. The hills were more sustained in Tuscany, but the winds were more challenging in the Czech Republic. The ancient towns in both areas have seen plagues and invasions over the centuries, and still survived. The country is divided into Moravia and Bohemia; we started in the former and finished in the latter area. The monastery at Vyssi Brod on the Moldau River near Cesky Krumlov has a library containing 70,000 volumes going back to the ninth century. That is one example of the treasures we saw in nine days. Near Vienna we saw many vineyards and visited the second-largest winery in the Czech Republic called the Knights Templar, which has existed since the 13th century with vast underground storage areas. We tasted three white wines and two red wines. They were all dry, but I thought somewhat lacking in body. I can remember a riesling, a traminer, a rosé, a red modry Portugal and a cabernet Moravia. Premium wines from Moravia did well at the Paris wine

competition held last March, but I could not find any sold in the United States. In all of the small towns where we stayed, the price of a bottle of water, a glass of wine or beer, and coffee were about the same at $1.50. The beer is some of the best in Europe since pilsner beer originated in the town of Plzen. Czechs have the highest percapita consumption of beer in Europe, but I did not see anyone out of control. We have in our local store a beer I saw advertised often in Bohemia, the Pilsner Urquell for $1.99 a bottle. After several days of riding away from Vienna, we saw fewer vineyards and more wooded and agricultural areas. The Czech food tended to be on the heavy side. The meat dishes had a thick herb sauce and bread dumplings. A specialty in one town was fried pieces of carp in a mushroom sauce. This fried carp reminded me of the fried clams famous in Boston. One night I had a chicken breast covered with sliced almonds, lightly fried and served with cranberry sauce. On our last night of the tour we had a great meal where large platters of food were set on the table. These platters contained pieces of salmon, halibut, chicken, pork and beef. I only ate the fish and found it to be baked and nicely seasoned. For once we agreed on the wine, which was an Italian rosé, not

Czech. In Prague, the prices for everything increased by a factor of two. Like imports from Argentina and Australia, possibly one day we will see Czech wines on the local shelves. We do have a few wines from Austria. A light summer wine is the 2008 Hopler Gruner Veltliner at $12.99. This greenish-yellow wine is dry with flavors of fruits and some acidity. I liked the alcohol content at 11 percent. I would serve this light wine with salads or even white fish. There are a couple more white wines worthy of summer drinking: The 2008 Yalumba Viognier at $9.99 is rated 88,

Recommended F Pilsner Urquell beer at $1.99 per bottle F 2008 Hopler Gruner Veltliner at $12.99 F 2008 Kunde Sauvignon Blanc at $10.99 F 2007 Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon at $13.99 F 2009 Crios de Susana Balbo Torrontes at $14.99 F 2008 Crios de Susana Balbo Malbec Rosé at $11.99 F 2007 Crios de Susana Balbo Cabernet Sauvignon at $14.99

and Yalumba has been on a run with good Viognier wines. This is their secondary label, but still a great value with floral aromas and flavors of peach. Also, the 2008 Kunde Sauvignon Blanc at $10.99 took my fancy. This Magnolia Lane wine has a few percent of Semillon and Viognier to give a more mellow flavor. The 2007 Foxglove Cabernet Sauvignon at $13.99 from California has intrigued me over two bottles. The flavor keeps changing depending on the food and airing of the wine. I asked friends their evaluation and they agreed it was a complex wine

constantly changing. With a national rating of 89 it is a good buy in cabernet. The popularity of Argentinean wines continues and our store has been stocking the latest vintages. In adjacent bins, from Crios de Susana Balbo is the 2009 Torrontes at $14.99, the 2008 Malbec Rosé at $11.99 and the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon at $14.99. For a different taste in white wine, I suggest you try the Torrontes, which is dry with subtle flavors of pear and orange. The Malbec Rosé is bolder than other rosé wines so it can handle some meat dishes in addition to baked salmon. It has strawberry and cherry flavors. If you want an excellent cabernet at a reasonable price then go for the Crios de Susana Balbo Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine was aged for nine months in oak and bottled without fining or filtering. This red wine has flavors of black currants and dark fruit to match any meat dish. All three wines are rated 90 by Robert Parker and I love this winery.

Mediums include oil and watercolor painting, fiber art, acrylics, sculpture, pottery, photography, jewelry and more. Generous support is provided by the Cache County RAPZ fund. “Summerfest involves all areas of the community and it brings everyone together,” said Summerfest board chair Wally Bloss. “It showcases visual artists from the area and allows everyone to be transported to a different time and place. When you’re there you don’t have to worry about what else is going on in your life.” Families will also enjoy the children’s art yard where young people can explore their own creativity through art projects provided by the Logan City School District.
