What’s inside this week (Page 4) Dennis sure does believe a lot of things ...
On the cover:
One of artist Dick Broun’s bookmarks. The Petersboro resident has experienced a lot in his art career so far, from photographing celebrities in L.A. to directing art campaigns for major companies. His latest project? Crafting colorful bookmarks from his work in various media. “I think a bookmark is nice,” he said. “... It makes reading the book a little more fun.” Read more about Broun — and see some of his creations — on Page 8.
From the editor
AM EXCITED ABOUT THIS week’s cover story because I am in dire need of a bookmark! How many of you use receipts or scraps of paper or whatever else you find lying around to mark your place in a book? I know I do ... right now I’ve resorted to just folding over the corner of the page because I lost the playing card I was using and haven’t managed to dig up anything else. Many times, when I’m cleaning up around the house, I find my husband has marked his place with a piece of Kleenex or a wrapper from his pocket. I bought him a bookmark for his Christmas stocking one year and he used it for awhile, lost it for about a year, found it, started using it again — then the new kitty ate it. So we need some bookmarks. If you

do, too, check out Page 8 then visit www.killerbookmarks.com. They’re only $5 apiece and you can rest assured nobody will have one like it. Another thing that’s gotten me excited this year is the upcoming performance of Tap Dogs on Oct. 8 and 9 at the Ellen Eccles Theatre. Not only is their tap dancing out of this world (check out the videos at http://www. youtube.com/user/dpptapdogs) but their industrial stage sets “incorporate moving parts, complicated steps, angle grinders and water.” This is definitely something you don’t want to miss! To find out where to buy your tickets, check out Page 5. I am headed to Portland, Ore., this weekend to see my sister get married, so don’t be surprised to see assistant editor Devin Felix’s smiling face in this spot next week.

pet photo of the week
From: 12-year-old Allison Hillman Why her pets are so lovable: “All of our pets (six cats, three
dogs and a hamster named Rhino) are rescue animals and are very sweet and playful (except for Rhino, who bit me). The cat in these pictures is perfect and so cute except for one thing ... she drools. It’s horrible!! It feels like she is giving you a shower at night when you are trying to sleep! Anyway, our brindle dog, Mauley, is so sweet because when
you have a bad day, she lies next to you and makes you feel better. ... Our black poodle, BeeBee, is sweet and has unconditional love for you no matter what. And when I am about to get grounded for a lifetime he is always in my room to make me feel better.”

Visiting artist Karen Carson to stop at USU HE NORA T Eccles Harrison Museum of Art at
“Flowers of Fate”
Utah State University will host a visit by artist Karen Carson starting with a lecture at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, in the Manon Caine Russell-Kathryn Caine Wanlass Performance Hall. Carson will share her experiences as a professional artist and discuss the creation of her work, including one of the art
museum’s most popular pieces, “Flowers of Fate,” a work familiar to many patrons assembled with mirror shards, ticking clocks and painted flowers. Admission is free and everyone is invited. Carson will also direct various workshops in the art department in addition to a teacher’s workshop from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, at the Cache County School District Office, 2063 N. 1200 East, North Logan. This workshop is free and open to educators of all grade levels through-
out Northern Utah and Southern Idaho and is organized between the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art’s Education Program and the Cache County School District Arts coordinator. As part of this workshop, teachers will split into grade-level break-out sessions to find connections between mathematics and the visual arts and discuss how these connections can be included in their curriculum. Each guest is required to RSVP to attend this workshop; contact Jody Treat at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Nadra Haffar, education curator for the Nora Eccles Harrison Museum of Art, explained that this workshop is important due to its involvement with the State-Wide Art Partnership (SWAP).

Center for the Arts will present Dein Perry’s Tap Dogs at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 8 and 9 at the Ellen Eccles Theatre. Tickets range from $26 to $38 and can be purchased at www.EllenEcclesTheatre.org or by calling 752-0026. Tap Dogs — a rough, tough, rocking theatrical entertainment performance — is ready to leave dents on stages all across North America. Winner of 11 International Awards, the group premiered at the Sydney Theatre Festival, moved on to London and New York and has been a howling success all across North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australia. Having performed in 330 cities worldwide with 12 million seats sold, Tap Dogs is taking the world by storm. Created by two-time Olivier Award-winning choreographer Dein Perry, with a construction site set by eclectic designer/director Nigel Triffitt and a driving score by composer Andrew Wilkie, Tap Dogs is part theater, part dance, part rock concert. Perry has come a long way

from the make-shift dance school in Newcastle, a steel town north of Sydney, Australia, where, as young boys, he and the future Dogs learned how to tap. At the age of 17, with no opportunities in sight for a dancing career, he earned his union papers and worked as an industrial machinist for six years. He then moved to Sydney where he tried to break into show business. Small chorus parts in Broadway-style musicals led to Perry’s big break when he was cast in the long-running Sydney
production of “42nd Street.” When it closed, he decided to create a contemporary show around the themes of his industrial experience with his Newcastle tap dancing mates. With a small government grant, Perry contacted his old friends, who had also taken up various “real” jobs by this time, and formed Tap Brothers. From this, Perry was offered the chance to choreograph the West End musical “Hot Shoe Shuffle,” which brought the group to London and earned Perry his Olivier Award in 1995. A subsequent offer from the Sydney Theatre Company led to a collaboration with Triffitt, which resulted in the creation of Tap Dogs. Triffitt’s industrial stage sets incorporate moving parts, complicated steps, angle grinders and water. The dancers will tap you into a daze of skill and scenery as they tap together, tap alone, tap fast, tap slow, tap in simple and complex rhythms, tap with basketballs and iron rods, tap hanging upside down suspended from ropes and on ladders.

Utah State Theatre opens 09-10 season
TAH STATE Theatre in the Caine School of the Arts at Utah State University will present “The Glass Menagerie” at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 24-26 and Sept. 30 through Oct. 3 at the Caine Lyric Theatre in Logan, 28 W. Center St. Tickets are $13 for the general public and available at the Caine School of the Arts Box Office in FA 138-B or at boxoffice.usu. edu. USU students with valid ID get in free. “The Glass Menagerie” by award-winning playwright Tennessee Williams is set in St. Louis in 1937
and describes the life of the Wingfield household. Presented as a memory, the play is a powerful tale that shows what happens when fragile dreams clash with reality, said the play’s director Colin Johnson, a USU theater arts department faculty member. Jared Rounds leads as narrator Tom Wingfield, an aspiring poet who supports his family by working at a shoe warehouse. He escapes his mundane life through literature, movies and alcohol. Anne Werner plays Laura Wingfield, who has withdrawn from life, preferring to listen to old
records and enjoy her collection of glass figurines. Her mother, Amanda Wingfield, played by Aubrey Campbell, decides marriage is the cure for Laura’s directionless life after her daughter drops out of business college. Nate Kluthe portrays Jim O’Connor, Tom’s friend and co-worker who is unknowingly tapped as Laura’s suitor. A dinner party to introduce the two young people ends in disaster. “The theme of the work is the challenge that faces us all in communicating with parents of very different generations, especially
those who have lived through difficult times,” said Johnson. “Furthermore, this semi-autobiographical play illustrates the absolute need we all have for hope in our lives ... for the promise of love and security in an unforgiving world. Its central character, Amanda Wingfield, is one of the most enduring characters of the American theater.” The Caine School of the Arts presents more than 175 events each academic year. More information on upcoming events is available at http://caineschool. usu.edu.

Film New this week “Love Happens” Rated PG-13 (0 stars) Love supposedly happens here. We’ll have to take their word for it. Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston are so utterly lacking in chemistry with each other (and they’re both pretty bland individually) that it’s hard to discern any genuine emotion. What first-time director Brandon Camp gives us instead is a cliche-addled romantic drama that’s short on both romance and drama, one that’s filled with soggy platitudes and contrived catharsis. Camp also wrote the script with Mike Thompson, which contains such unimaginative, heavy-handed metaphors as walking across hot coals, shopping at Home Depot as a means of rebuilding a life and setting a bird free in the woods. It’s a painfully earnest slog reminiscent of such gooey fare as “Pay It Forward,” one that belongs on cable, if anywhere, and probably wouldn’t even have seen the light of day theatrically if not for the involvement of its two main stars. Eckhart plays self-help guru Burke Ryan, a widower who wrote a book about coping with loss after his wife’s death in a car accident three years ago. Now he’s a nationwide sensation, playing to sold-out crowds at cult-like seminars and helping others work through their own grief. Aniston co-stars as a florist named Eloise, who creates the flower arrangements at the hotel where Burke’s Seattle workshops are taking place. Both are apprehensive about falling in love again, which means that naturally they’re meant to do so with each other. PG-13 for some language including sexual references. 110 min. “Jennifer’s Body” Rated R ★★ The second screenplay from Diablo Cody following her debut smash “Juno” is so chock full of her quirky trademarks, it almost plays like a parody of something she’d write. The self-consciously clever dialogue, the gratuitous pop-culture references, the made-up phrases intended to convey a specific high school ethos — they’re all there. Even though fembot Megan Fox is an excellent fit to spit out these witty quips, it’s all so familiar, it makes you wonder whether Cody
New this week!
As Tommy tries desperately to get her attention his antics cause him to fall into hot water with the local police. He luckily escapes jail and chooses to do community service at the nearby prison to stay out of trouble. Soon the stakes for Tommy are raised when his music teacher and mentor lands him an audition for the elite music conservatorium. Against all odds, Tommy gains the affections of Kat, finds a way to reconcile with his father and conducts the concert of his life.” PG for thematic elements and some language.
Still playing “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” Rated PG (89%) Because of a conflict with the screening time, a review of “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” was not available from The Associated Press. In lieu, please accept this synopsis from www.RottenTomatoes.com: “Inspired by Ron and Judi Barrett’s beloved children’s book of the same name, ‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs’ follows inventor Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) and brainy weathergirl Sam Sparks (voice of Anna Faris) as they has any other weapons in her arsenal. Part of the allure of the Showtime series Cody created, “The United States of Tara” — beyond the versatility of star Toni Collette — is the humor she finds in everyday suburbia, the reality and the absurdity. And that’s the best part of “Jennifer’s Body,” too. Never mind that it’s a mash-up of horror flick and teen comedy: When her characters talk about regular stuff like awkward adolescent sex and high-school dances, it’s funny in a relatable way. It’s when Cody tries too hard to dazzle us that she loses her footing; meanwhile, director Karyn Kusama struggles in her own way to find the right tone. The result: “Jennifer’s Body” is never scary and only sporadically amusing. Fox is a great choice, though, to play Jennifer, the queen bee in the small town of Devil’s Kettle. One night, after attending a concert by her favorite band that goes disastrously awry, Jennifer seems ... different. This is immediately obvious to her childhood best friend, the nerdy Needy (Amanda Seyfried). But soon the whole town knows something’s wrong when boys’ bodies start turning up eviscerated. R for sexuality, bloody violence, language and brief drug use. 100 min.
attempt to discover why the rain in their small town has stopped while food is falling in its place. Meanwhile, lifelong bully Brent (voice of Adam Samberg) relishes in tormenting Flint just as he did when they were kids, and Mayor Shelbourne (voice of Bruce Campbell) schemes to use Flint’s latest invention — a device designed to improve everyone’s lives — for his own personal gain. Mr. T. voices by-the-books cop Earl Devereaux and James Caan voices Flint’s technophobe father, Tim.” PG for brief mild language.
“The Informant!” Rated R ★★★ The exclamation point in the title is your first clue that Steven Soderbergh’s intentions here are more than a little askew. Then you notice Matt Damon’s helmet of hair, his pouf of a mustache, his corny sportswear and the paunch where the “Bourne” trilogy star’s taut abs used to be. And once the strains of Marvin Hamlisch’s jaunty score begin — an ideal accompaniment to the faded, ’70s-style cinematography — you know you’re in some vividly retro, comic parallel universe. “The Informant!” is about a serious, real-life subject — a whistle-blower who spied for the FBI to expose corporate corruption — only Soderbergh, directing a script by Scott Z. Burns, approaches it in the goofiest way, rather than as a serious drama like “The Insider” or even his own “Erin Brockovich.” It’s a kick, really, but it also keeps you guessing: Is Damon, as Mark Whitacre, just a regular guy who gets in over his head? Is he far more scheming and malevolent than his folksy Midwestern demeanor would suggest? Or is something else entirely going on here? Damon doesn’t just dig into the role physically. He also keeps you on your toes with Whitacre’s
happy-go-lucky personality, a misplaced confidence that buoys him regardless of the situation, coupled with a surprisingly high comfort level for duplicity. One of the neatest tricks that throws us off course is Whitacre’s running interior monologue: a series of voiceovers in which he provides stream-of-consciousness musings on everything from indoor pools to the Japanese word for tuna. His thoughts may not be as innocuous as they seem. R for language. 108 min. “Broken Hill” Rated PG (N/A) A review for “Broken Hill” was not available from The Associated Press. In lieu, please accept this synopsis from www. RottenTomatoes.com: “In the traditions of ‘Save the Last Dance,’ ‘Billy Elliott’ and ‘August Rush’ comes the musical drama ‘Broken Hill.’ Tommy was born and raised on a rocky, drought-ridden sheep station in the middle of the Australian Outback. He works at the station and does all he can to appease his demanding father but in his heart wants to be a great musician. That all changes when Tommy meets his new classmate Kat, a bold and brash beauty, who at first doesn’t notice him at all.
“Whiteout” Rated R 1 ★ ⁄2 It’s Kate Beckinsale on Ice. In this new cold-blooded suspense flick, the actress plays Carrie Stetko, a U.S. Marshall posted at a remote base in Antarctica. Yes, the movies have returned to our southernmost continent: “Whiteout” follows in the webbed footsteps of “March of the Penguins” and Werner Herzog, who traveled there for last year’s “Encounters at the End of the World.” This time, there’s nary a penguin in sight (though even amid all that cold, the movie still finds a way to squeeze in a steamy, gratuitous shower scene). Soon enough, Antarctica (or Canada standing in for Antarctica) has — as one character proclaims — its first murder, setting off some jurisdictional confusion. Somehow, the United Nations gets involved, immediately dispatching an investigator (Gabriel Macht). The root of the murders has to do with loot from a newly discovered Soviet plane that crashed in 1957 in the middle of the Cold War. (Presumably, the plane’s pilots had taken that term literally.) There’s much that’s unbelievable about “Whiteout,” but nothing more so than the idea that someone can fight in minus-65 degree cold without anything to cover the face. But despite such flaws, “Whiteout” succeeds as a half-brained but intriguing whodunit. It’s not a fraction of “Fargo,” but its solid-enough performances and cool mood give it a noirish pulse in a novel, frozen land. R for violence, grisly images, brief strong language and some nudity. 101 min. — All reviews by The Associated Press
ESPITE THEIR rough-hewn appearance, the resourceful rag dolls in â€œ9â€? obviously were crafted with great love and care, both by the scientist who made them in the film and the mastermind behind them in real life, director Shane Acker. If only as much complex thought had gone into the script. The animation is so breathtaking in its originality, so weird and wondrous in its detail, you wish there were more meat to the screenplay from Pamela Pettler, who previously wrote â€œMonster House.â€? Based on Ackerâ€™s animated short of the same name, which was nominated for an Oscar in 2006, â€œ9â€? follows a group of creatures who represent the last vestige of humanity in a postapocalyptic world. Itâ€™s set in the future after a war between mankind and machines but eerily resembles Europe after World War II, with its sepia tones blanketing the decimated surroundings in danger and fear. (Parents, donâ€™t be fooled: It may look like a cute and clever cartoon, but â€œ9â€? is genuinely frightening.) 9 (voiced by Elijah Wood) awakens to find no people are left, but there are a few others like him: tiny, fabric dolls stitched together coarsely but sturdily, with lenses for eyes. (As in â€œWALL-E,â€? the eyes convey a lot more emotion than you might imagine.) Itâ€™s easy to see why Tim Burton was drawn to â€œ9â€? and wanted to
help get it made as a producer, along with â€œWantedâ€? director Timur Bekmambetov: the mixture of darkness and whimsy, the childlike and the fantastic, is reminiscent of Burtonâ€™s signature aesthetic. And yet, Acker has a vision all his own. The dolls have numbers on their backs signifying who they are and the order in which they were created. They include 1 (Christopher Plummer), the priestly, rigid leader; 2 (Martin Landau), an aging but feisty inventor; 5 (John C. Reilly), whoâ€™s loyal but afraid of everything; and 7 (Jennifer Connelly), a brave and buttkicking warrior. Appropriately, Crispin Glover provides the

voice of the groupâ€™s misfit artist, 6. There are also 3 and 4, mute twins who are experts on history, and the brutish 8 (Fred Tatasciore), who looks like the Michelin Man and serves as 1â€™s enforcer.

composed of a giant red eye at the center and myriad metal tentacles. He and the other dolls must then scurry for their lives

â€” even though they donâ€™t yet know the whole story of their purpose on this planet â€” as a series of equally menacing monsters tries to pick them off, one by one. About halfway in, you realize how thin this expanded story really is, even though itâ€™s always dazzling to watch. Itâ€™s intense and nearly relentless, except for a brief respite in which â€œ9â€? pays a lovely homage to â€œThe Wizard of Oz.â€? Acker isnâ€™t taking us over the rainbow, but he has brought us someplace daring and new, and he makes you anxious to see what other destinations he has in mind. â€œ9,â€? a Focus Features release, is rated PG-13 for violence and scary images.

s Rita Hayworth was leaving the Hotel BelAir one morning in the mid-80s, Dick Broun was just arriving. He had an appointment with the man who had been photographing the famous actress. But that artist quickly turned into the subject and Broun took his place shooting the man, who just so happened to be the legendary icon of the Pop Art movement. When Andy Warhol walked into the room wearing a pair of white glasses, Broun thought he could do better. “I asked him if he had any shades, and he said, ‘Yeah,’” Broun recalled. “So he put them on, and I liked that.” The result was a strikingly personal portrait of Warhol, sporting the black shades in a rather reserved pose. “He was a lot more soft-spoken than I would have thought,” Broun said. “After looking at his work, I thought he would have been kind of loud. But he was just a really quiet kind of guy.” Now, more than 20 years later, Broun’s photo of Warhol is making a splash on a new medium: It’s one of about 150 different bookmarks that recently made their debut on the Web site www.killerbookmarks.com. The diversity of Broun’s artistic ability is displayed on laminated bookmarks through an array of options, featuring pencil and pen drawings, oil paintings, crayon drawings, mixed media and, of course, Broun’s work as a longtime photographer. Before moving to Petersboro 10 years ago, Broun spent about 30 years working in Los Angeles photographing celebrities and directing advertising campaigns for major companies, such as AT&T, Nexxus Products and
St. Moritz eyewear, as well as brands like Hawaiian Punch. But Broun found that while commercial art could often be lucrative, it did have limitations in that he did not have complete creative control. When marketing Light Hawaiian Punch, for instance, there were certain stipulations: The models had to be thin with accentuating wardrobes that were always red. “If you’re selling Hawaiian Punch, you’ve got to sell Hawaiian Punch,” said Broun. But with the current bookmark project and the art that accompanies it, Broun said he has “total freedom.” “You don’t pre-judge it,” he said. “You don’t put any parameters on it or rules or anything. You just let it flow. Fine art’s a whole different thing. I just do it for myself, and I

Dick Broun: Makin his (book)mark have fun with it.” While the Web site has been up since June, Broun actually started making the bookmarks about two years ago, but only for himself and some friends. He especially enjoys reading books about art and grew tired of using scraps of paper as placeholders. “I enjoyed the bookmarks better, and I thought that maybe other people would too,” he said. Broun’s crayon drawings, which he started doing last year, are one of the major bookmark categories. He uses china markers to sketch the outline of the subject, then fills in the colors with the Crayola varieties. Typically, a character resembling something out of a comic book emerges. The subjects exhibit a range of emotions, but there is one obvious similar-

NE OF the many things that fell to budget cuts was National Public Radio’s “This I Believe.” It was one of the more brilliant things they did because it forced people to take some sort of stand. Maybe they could revive it and just put it on Twitter or text messaging and limit everyone to 140 characters. Or maybe it could be on Facebook and whoever got the most friends would win a prize. With or without NPR, a belief system is something you need to keep handy like a fire extinguisher or a Phillips head screwdriver, so I decided to write mine down. I’m a pragmatic idealist; I no longer believe that Linux, hemp and vegetarianism can save the world. I don’t believe in any of the 9/11 cover-up theories mainly because a government that was too inept to depose Fidel Castro for the last 50 years could not possibly be that smart. I believe that management almost always gets it wrong. People don’t just want money; they want meaningful work. I don’t believe anything candidates say, especially the ones who are on “my” side. Despite what the statistics say, I don’t believe anybody really voted for Ronald Reagan twice, subscribes to Reader’s Digest or buys pickled pigs’ feet. I do believe that,
Slightly Off Center By Dennis Hinkamp
given a chance of getting away with it, most people will lie. I believe most people are so envious of handicapped parking spaces that they seldom stop to think about what being handicapped really means. I don’t believe that even 1 percent of people cheat on food stamps; they shop at 2 a.m. because they are saddened and embarrassed. I don’t believe there are big differences in the major religions and what difference there is isn’t worth fighting for and is barely worth arguing about. I don’t believe cleanliness is anywhere near godliness but I do believe that righteousness is nowhere near thoughtfulness. I believe it is a lot easier to wrap your mind around saving a forest than it is to solve poverty and that’s why there are more environmentalists than homeless shelter volunteers. I believe cute little kitty cats kill more cute little songbirds than
they are worth and that dogs are better at making people change their behavior than most spouses. I don’t believe anybody ever solved a car problem by listening to the Car Talk guys but that after listening to them you feel better about your bad choice in vehicles. I believe that Keith Richards and Noam Chomsky are the only two “cool” people in the world even though for entirely different reasons. I believe houses are an extension of your ego and some people have very large and ugly egos. I believe that everyone who talks on their cell phone while they drive ought to be forced to work in telemarketing for the rest of their lives if they like phones that much. I believe Ralph Nader would have made a terrible president, but nobody would notice the difference. I don’t believe Bill Gates is truly generous or truly evil. I believe that most people are not truly conservative or liberal but rather live fat and happy wallowing in the muddy middle. Dennis Hinkamp believes his beliefs will probably have changed by the time this is printed.

Fall activities coming to Heritage Center from old ways. The Heritage Center is primarily a living history museum so there will be living history activities and crafts for young and old. These include threshing, apple pressing, corn shelling, corn husk doll making and many other diversions from its five major sites: a 1917 farm, a pioneer settlement, a mountain man camp, a Shoshone Indian encampment and frontier town shops with woodwright and milliner.
Farmtastic Fall! The American West Heritage
Center in Wellsville is once again putting on a host of activities for the fall and Halloween season with its “Farmtastic Fall!” event, which runs Sept. 19 through Oct. 31. “Farmtastic Fall!” features one of the largest corn mazes in the area, this year depicting the Headless Horseman if looking from above. Other activities include train rides on the Heritage Center’s newly acquired train, the infamous pitch-dark “Blackout Maze,” Potato Sack Super Slide, Cowboy Carousel, Mini-Pumpkin Patch Express, Hay Fort Jump and many more activities. One particularly exciting feature is the addition of the popular Dead End Yard Haunt, normally run by the Wentz family on Canyon Road in Logan, but this year appearing at the Heritage Center beginning Oct. 9, because of the tragic floods in the area earlier this summer. “We’re thrilled that Deads End is coming here,” said Program Director David Sidwell. “This is museum-quality, detailed and amazing spookiness that we have the privilege of hosting.” The Wentz family has been running Deads End on Canyon Road for 13 years, and they hated to see a year go by without it. Visitors will also have the chance to contribute to the Wentz family to help pay for damages done to their home by the devastating flooding of the canal. Additionally, each week will feature special harvest-oriented events on Wednesdays and Satur-

Fall Harvest Fest Kicking off the Heritage Center’s fall events is the beloved Fall Harvest Festival from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, Sept.
19. Heritage harvest activities include threshing with the old steam machinery, corn shelling and other living history demonstrations. One of the Heritage Center’s favorite machines is the old thresher, driven this year by the steam tractor that once again runs and toots its welcoming whistle throughout the day. Antique tractors and machines will make an appearance this year, too. “This is always one of our favorite events of the year,”
said Sidwell. “We love the harvest season, and we do so many fun activities that we ourselves love doing so much. It’s a good thing.” It being harvest season, the Heritage Center will be putting on various cooking workshops where visitors can see how the harvest was cooked up and enjoyed 100 years or more ago. From smoked sausage making to Dutch-oven cooking and more, it’s a great opportunity to learn new cooking skills
Tickets on sale for Gary Morris performance ARY MORRIS G Productions will present “An Evening With Gary Morris” at 8 p.m.
Friday, Nov. 13, at the Ellen Eccles Theatre in downtown Logan. “I am always grateful to be able to return back to Logan to entertain audiences in Utah,” said Morris. “In this special case I’m excited to be intro-
ducing some new gospel music to my performance.” Morris, a North Texas native, will entertain his Utah audience with a two-hour concert filled with inspirational/spiritual music as well as his country and Broadway hits. Morris is most well-known for his extraordinary vocals on “Wind Beneath My Wings”
and the Grammy Award-winning symphonic recordings of Les Miserables’ “Bring Him Home.” The event is sponsored by Gary Morris Productions. Tickets are available at the Ellen Eccles Theatre by calling 752-0026 or online at www.centerforthearts.us. For more information about Morris, visit www.garymorris.com.
Oct. 9-10, 16-17, 23-24 and 30) will be an event that is intended to chill and thrill visitors. Heritage Center folks do not recommend small children at this activity. This year the Haunted Hollow will present “Grimm’s Trail of Terror,” depicting scenes from the Grimm’s fairy tales — the REAL Grimm fairy tales in which, as one example, Cinderella’s sisters cut off parts of their feet so the slipper fits. Other stories featured are the real “Snow White,” “Sleeping Beauty” and a few slightly more obscure tales such as the “Juniper Tree” and “The Seven Ravens.” All in all, there will be lots to do at the Heritage Center, which puts on these activities to help visitors explore and celebrate the heritage of our area. These activities are also fundraisers for its educational programs, in which school classrooms come to learn about the past in fun ways.

A courageous story of hope, love, faith “When Hearts Conjoin” by Erin Marie Herrin with Lu Ann Brobst Staheli (Richard Paul Evans Publishing, 2009, $12.95)
Regional Reads By Charlene Hirschi
s there a single person in Utah who does not recognize the two little girls pictured on the front of this book? I seriously doubt it. We were all glued to our television sets the day these twins went into the operating room to be separated and waited impatiently for daily updates during the recovery stage. We breathed a collective sigh of relief when we heard the operation was a success. The girls were going home. These were our babies in a sense. If you happen to be the one person who doesn’t know, Kendra and Maliya Herrin were conjoined twins who shared two legs between them (each girl actually controlled a separate leg), shared vital organs including the heart and waited four years for “CutApart Day,” as they called it. This book is one family’s story — a chronicle of the constant turmoil and uncertainty that comes with the birth of conjoined twins, which are “extremely rare. Although conceived perhaps once in every 40,000 pregnancies, many abort spontaneously or are terminated, while almost all the rest are stillborn or die within 24 hours of birth. Live births occur around once in every 200,000 of all live births. ... There could be as many as 50 complete sets of separated twins alive today, and more single twins who are sole survivors of separation.” What appeared in the newspaper and the nightly news is only a small part of what this family went through. First one has to admire the candor and courage of Jake and Erin Her-
rin in telling the entire story because it isn’t all pretty. Jake and Erin had actually come to the point in their marriage where they had decided to end it when Erin found out she was pregnant again. Jake had left the home and divorce papers had been filed. But then the unexpected ultrasound that revealed the conjoined nature of the pregnancy brought them back together as a couple — a miracle in itself, for events of this nature probably break up more marriages than they save. From the beginning, both Jake and Erin were adamant they did not want to terminate the pregnancy. After the girls’ birth, they both felt just as strongly that they would not willingly sacrifice one twin for the other. They did not pretend this was the right decision for everybody, but they knew it was the only decision for them. What this book brought home to me more than anything else is how complicated life is; while trying to make life-anddeath decisions, life goes on with all its messiness, victories and setbacks. Time does not stand still while we ponder the right course of action; there are other pressing life issues that need immediate attention while the overriding concern and resulting decisions have a ripple effect on families and
entire communities. Herrin does not whine about “why me,” nor does she gloss over the sometimes brutal reality of raising conjoined twins. From the beginning she has considered the girls a blessing, but because of the rarity and speculative interest in the circumstances of their birth, she does burst forth from time to time with her feelings about intrusive outside sources that reduced her darling girls to scientific specimens. For instance, in the hospital immediately after their birth, when her first glimpse of them was a picture taken by one of the doctors and when she finally got to see them, “I sat up in bed, wanting to drink in every sound and smell, explore every inch of their little body. But there were so many people, and everyone else wanted to see for themselves how the girls were joined, trying to remove the blanket wrapped around them to keep the girls’ privacy covered. I didn’t even get to hold them and could barely see them through the gathering of specialists, doctors, nurses and technicians. I
wanted to yell at everyone to get out of the room so I could see my babies. ‘Please don’t,’ I asked, wishing for these precious moments alone with my husband and daughters. ‘Please keep them covered.’ ... I begged for the girls to be given their privacy.” She also writes: “Of course, all of the time needed to care for the twins, on top of taking care of Courtney, meant very little sleep for both Jake and me, even though there was one good result from being forced to spend all this time working together. These little girls were bringing the two of us closer together. We discovered we were more in love than we had ever been, and a physical relationship redeveloped that would be key to saving our marriage.” “When Hearts Conjoin” is full of pictures of the twins in various stages of their life, and I have to tell you they were — and still are — two of the most beautiful children I have ever seen. You will enjoy this book and the story of this family. You will grow to love these young parents who had decisions thrust upon them that they never could have dreamed of. You will admire their courage and tenacity, but most of all you will admire and recognize a mother’s love in action. She writes about the day
of the surgery, “I’m not sure ‘worried’ is a strong enough word to describe how I felt. Terrified might be better. My nerves were raw, my emotions ready to erupt every second. I tried to stay positive so the girls wouldn’t see how upset I was and become frightened themselves. If anything went wrong today, if I lost one or both of my precious daughters, I’d never be able to live with myself.” All proceeds from the book will be used to establish a fund for the girls’ future. What a deal — for $12.95 you can not only enjoy a great book but contribute to a truly worthy cause. Go buy it. “Altered State” by Gregg Luke (Covenant Communications Inc., 2009, $15.95)
nother author tried and true, Gregg Luke has appeared in this column before, and his fans will be glad to know of his latest medical thriller. His subject this time: mind control. The possibility of using medication to achieve diabolical ends makes for an exciting story. What, indeed, will some people do to enrich themselves and at what cost to others? Luke’s first two books were bestsellers; because of his pharmaceutical knowledge, wild but intriguing imagination and storytelling abilities, there is no reason to think this one will be any less successful.
