From the editor o you know where you’ll D be tonight when the clock hits midnight, gentle readers?

Unfortunately, I know where I’ll be: Right here at the Herald Journal, laying out the newspaper for the first day of the new year. You see, I’m usually a copy editor, but this week I’m filling in for Kim Burgess, who is taking a much-deserved vacation with her family for the holiday. Anyway, this week’s magazine is full of activities and information. If you haven’t yet figured out a New Year’s party, check out Page 3 (facing), for a couple options, and don’t forget to look at the Happenings calendar on Page 15 for other parties as well. If you’ve got lots more energy (and time) than I do, this week’s magazine is full of activities for both kids and adults. On Page 4, check out some class sessions starting this week at the Cache Valley

Center for the Arts — from ceramics and drawing to photography, magic, music and acting. This week we’ve had a lot of poetry submitted for the Cache Bulletin Board, so we’ve used both Pages 4 and 5 for your poems. Among the poems I’ve included is a song lyric by continuing contributor William P. Humphrey, (whose offer to “bribe” me with my choice of candy bars honestly didn’t influence this decision); a satirical paean about food by Logan resident Donna Burns showing just how “full” her calendar really is each year; and a poem submitted by Glenda Grindeland that she says is her response to William Humphrey’s poem in last week’s Cache. I’ve especially enjoyed reading the poetry sent in by the language arts students of local teacher Kathy Christiansen. Maybe we’ll see more art, photos and poetry from talented residents this coming year? I hope so.

pet photo of the week

This dog is available for adoption! Pet: Jessie From: Cache Humane Society Why she’s so lovable:

A beautiful tri-color fox hound mix, Jessie is quiet and well-mannered, with low energy needs. She will need a home with children older than age 8. Jessie is nervous around grabby hands of toddlers and she is NOT suited to be an outside dog. Fun, games & daily exercise would be perfect for Jessie. Off-leash training will be a must because if she catches a scent, she will wander for miles and not know it. Call CHS at 792-3920 for information.

HE UTAH PUBLIC ART PROGRAM, in association with the Division of Facilities and Construction Management and Utah State University, announces a call for letters of interest and qualifications from artists or artist teams interested in creating art for the new College of Agricultural Science on the USU campus. The deadline for receipt of applications or online submissions from interested artists is 5 p.m. on Feb. 10, 2011. Information and application instructions are available at www. utahpublicart.org. All hard copy application materials should be mailed or delivered to: Jim Glenn, Utah Public Art Program, 300 S. Rio Grande, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84101. The community-based Art Selection Committee envisions artwork that is an important

part of the inspiration and stimulus for scientific inquiry and explorative academic work at the College of Agriculture. The Public Art Program was created by the Utah State Legislature in 1985 with the passage of the Percent-for-Art Act and is administered by the Utah Arts Council through the Division of Arts & Museums. The statute allows for 1 percent of construction costs for new or remodeled state facilities to be added to the project for the commissioning or acquisition of art that is site specific to the facility and community. To date, over 200 works have been placed in state facilities statewide. For more information and online applications on this and other projects visit www.utahpubli cart.org or contact Jim Glenn at jglenn@utah. gov or 801-533-3585.

Aaron Peck’s Top 10 film picks for 2010 10. “Rabbit Hole”

A tender, sweet film about a family dealing with the loss of their only son. Aaron Eckhart and Nicole Kidman give some of the most human performances of the year. This was a heartbreaking film, which never shoved the message down your throat. Instead we follow along as we watch these two people struggle with the memories that their son is gone forever. Each of them copes in a different way. It’s beautifully paced, and works as an introspective character study that will jerk your tears right out of their ducts.

9. “how to

train your dragon”

Dreamworks is getting awfully close to matching the wonders of Pixar. If Pixar keeps heading down the road of sequels, they may find Dreamworks shadow working its way over to them. Still, Dreamworks taking over the Pixar mantel is quite far away, but “How to Train Your Dragon” was by far the second most fun animated feature released this year. It was clever, funny, daring, and altogether exciting. Those scenes of Hiccup soaring through the air on the back of Toothless were amazing to behold in theaters. Out of all these movies “How to Train Your Dragon” made me feel most like a kid again.

lions” 8.The“Four gears on this list just switched pretty fast. We go from high-flying, entertain-

ing kid-like fun to a dark comedy about a group of terrorists who are working to that one ultimate goal, becoming suicide bombers. The rag-tag band of Jihadists in “Four Lions” just has to be seen to be believed. They are equal parts moronic and scary. “Four Lions” deals with a very touchy subject, but does so in a humane, and often times hilarious, way. It’s a show not everyone will want to see, but everyone needs to see it.

I loved “Buried” when I saw it at Sundance, and I’ve loved it from then on. I was never sure about the whole gimmick of Ryan Reynolds being stuck in a coffin, buried underground, for the entirety of the movie, but it works. It works so well because Reynolds gives the performance of his career. To keep an entire audience riveted, all while acting in a six- foot pine box is quite the achievement. One of the best thrillers of the year for sure.

“127 hours” 6.I can’t believe how fast

Danny Boyle’s terrifyingly real film about Aron Ralston came and went. It’s being cast aside, come awards season, for other movies much faster than I was expecting. I was expecting “127 Hours” to be one of the front runners, and now, scanning across a few top ten lists here and there, it isn’t found anywhere. I for one, was riveted by Ralston’s story, how Boyle put it together, and Franco’s amazing performance.

of the year, and one of the best films of the year period. I have to admit being skeptical that Pixar was going for another sequel. They flourish with original ideas, but the “Toy Story” franchise has been sort of an enigma. A trilogy hasn’t been this consistently good, since, well I don’t know when. Trilogies usually falter here and there when the sequels bring in too many characters or water down the plot with hackneyed situations. “Toy Story 3”, however, went above and beyond the CG animation call of duty. It was an emotional adventure with characters we’ve come to know and love. It won over critics and audiences alike. In short, it’s a near perfect movie all around.

4. “catfish”

I was simply blown away by Jennifer Lawrence’s performance in “Winter’s Bone.” She’s going to be a force in the world of Hollywood actresses. I felt about her the same way I felt about Carrey Mulligan when I watched her in “An Education.” Not only is Lawrence superb here, Debra Granik’s portrayal of a bleak life in the Ozarks is something to behold. She paints together a society of people that can only be described as the Redneck Mafia. They keep to themselves, and they especially don’t talk to the cops. Watching Lawrence as Ree Dolly searching for her father across the barren Ozarkian lands was one of the best cinematic stories told this year. A tough woman trying to live in an even tougher culture.

2. “scott pil-

grim vs. the world” I was wowed by “Catfish” when I first saw it at Sundance, then the movie hit a firestorm of negative mojo. Critics

“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” doesn’t seem to be making many lists. That’s okay, I have no qualms as putting it as my second favorite movie

That’s right, I’m picking Nolan’s masterpiece “Inception” as my favorite movie of the year. After “Inception” was released there were grumblings in the critical world that the movie was too manipulative in its dream sequences. It was too rigid in its dream structure. Or that the entire first half of the movie is filled to the brim with exposition. None of those matters to me, what matters to me is that for two hours I couldn’t take my eyes off of that movie screen. It was one of the most enjoyable theatrical experiences I have ever had, and I don’t say that lightly. I felt sucked into Nolan’s world. The editing is superb as it cuts back and forth through the different dream states giving us an idea of what is happening in each level. The hallway scene is brilliant. Just brilliant. What an experience! Film critic Aaron Peck has a bachelor’s degree in English from USU. He also writes for BlogCritics.org, HighDefDigest. com, and is starting up a new movie website called TheReelPlace.com. Feedback at aaronpeck46@gmail.com.


Film

“Biutifulâ€? Rated R ★★ ½ — Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu has always driven headlong into gritty depictions of pain and tragedy. With a hand-held camera and a brooding artist’s mandate, he revels in peering into the depths and brandishing his seriousness. Following the visceral triptychs “Amores Perros,â€? ‘’21 Gramsâ€? and “Babel,â€? Inarritu, for the first time, tells the story linearly. He is trained on one character: Uxbal (Javier Bardem), a kind of black-market middle man in Barcelona. He’s fatally ill, a predicament made all the more awkward because of his two young children, Ana (Hanaa Bouchaib) and Mateo (Guillermo Estrella). Their mother, Uxbal’s ex-wife (Maricel Alvarez), is manic-depressive and untrustworthy. Much of “Biutifulâ€? is Uxbal badly attempting to ready himself and those around him for his exit. Bardem, with a mane of hair and a heavy weariness, carries the otherwise contrived film entirely. A film about death is in itself a worthy undertaking, but Inarritu tries to juggle fatherhood, divorce, business ethics and ghosts. It’s mountains to heap on an actor, and remarkable that Bardem manages it so beautifully. R for disturbing images, language, some sexual content, nudity and drug use. 148 minutes.

“Blue Valentineâ€? ★★★ ½ Rated R — Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling’s marital drama is agonizing to watch yet relentlessly compelling, even illuminating, playing almost like a sober documentary rather than a narrative

Still playing

“Another Year� Rated PG-13 ★★★ — Nothing really happens in Mike Leigh’s latest — nothing extraordinary, at least. As the title suggests, the film follows the usual comings and goings, ups and downs that transpire over four seasons among a longtime happily married couple, their family and friends. And yet everything is fully realized and superbly crafted; the sense of intimacy Leigh creates as writer and director is never broken, for better and for worse. “Another Year� feels as organic and authentic as the vegetables its lead characters, husband and wife Tom and Gerri (Jim Broadbent and Ruth Sheen), grow in a community garden. It reveals the players’ connections effortlessly, and with the

naturalistic dialogue that is among the filmmaker’s trademarks. But it can also be unrelentingly bleak, which should come as a surprise to absolutely no one who’s a fan of Leigh’s work. Still, the character at the center of “Another Year,� Lesley Manville’s Mary, is a high-energy bundle of neediness and desire, constantly striving to

connect, desperate for human contact. Manville, one of many Leigh regulars in the cast, plays her as well-intentioned but self-conscious, ingratiating but jittery, sweet but passive-aggressive and clearly so, so lonely. It’s an annoying character, but Manville is so good, she makes you feel sorry for her. 129 minutes.

film. Though fictional, it is a document of sorts, a chronicle of a crumbling marriage that often feels as honest and painful as if it were a nonfiction film about real people putting each other through absolute hell. Williams and Gosling play a couple spending a night away from their young daugh-

ter in hopes of renewing their faded romantic spark. Director and cowriter Derek Cianfrance intersperses the marital scenes with lovingly nostalgic flashbacks to the start of their romance six years earlier. Williams and Gosling’s performances range from sublimely sweet in the flash-

backs to raw, ferocious and punishing in the present day. The result is a beautifully idiosyncratic portrait of a relationship that starts with the brightest of hopes and inevitably falters as the years and mileage accumulate. R for strong sexual content, language and a beating. 112 minutes.

“True Grit� ★★★ — One of the most mainstream, crowd-pleasing films Joel and Ethan Coen have ever made. It’s sort of a screwball Western, if you will, with vivid performances and strikingly vast, picturesque vistas, the always gorgeous work of the always great Roger Deakins, the Coens’ frequent cinematographer. But it’s a minor entry from the writing-directing brothers, especially when you consider the inventiveness and strength of their canon and the close aesthetic resemblance to “No Country for Old Men,� their masterpiece. While “True Grit� is entertaining, it’s also surprisingly lacking in emotional resonance, as well as the intriguing sense of ambiguity that so often permeates Coen pic-

tures. Only toward the end does it feel like anything is at stake, but at least it’s enjoyable while you’re waiting. Hailee Steinfeld in her film debut is a revelation as Mattie Ross, the 19th-century pioneer teenager who demands vengeance for her father’s murder. She seeks help from a man she hears has true grit: one-eyed, alcoholic U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn. Jeff Bridges plays the role that earned John Wayne his only Academy Award as gruff and grizzled, a lawman who’s lived a long and well-lubricated life, but who also has attained a certain Zen-like self-possession about it. Matt Damon again proves he can do anything, joining the duo on the trail as a preening Texas Ranger. PG-13 for some intense sequences of western violence including disturbing images. 110 minutes.

The Cache Magazine Bulletin Board “An Ode to Food” by Donna Burns It started out on New Year’s Day. The smells came from the kitchen Of ham, black-eyed peas, and cornbread. That’s when I started snitchin’. There were candied sweet potatoes, okra and good old pecan pie. I ate so much of all of it, I thought that I would die. The day was filled with football games and friends came in to call. We had popcorn, cold drinks and sandwiches throughout, and, yes, I ate it all. In the middle of January there were birthdays for Martin Luther King and Robert E. Lee. My diet turned to Southern soul food with a vengeance. I ate so fancy free. Groundhog Day then rolled around. We watched that little fellow Come out to see his shadow. I watched chewing on a big marshmallow. For Lincoln’s birthday we had a small party and ate Yankee dressing off a plate. It was full of chestnuts and celery.

heavy sigh. Along came St. Patrick’s Day and the food was all in greens. There was Jell-O, peas, mint cupcakes, broccoli, zucchini and lots of long green beans. On April 15th I stuffed myself due to major frustration. It seemed to be the thing. to do because of income tax invasion. Soon Easter came and — you guessed it — we had eggs boiled, baked, coddled, stuffed, and fried. Some were deviled, some were poached. My stomach hurt so bad, I cried. On May Day, sweet May Day, we had lots of cookies and punch. There were little plates of neat hors d’oeuvres just to sit and munch. On Mother’s Day she cooked for us: A big fried chicken, carrots and mashed potatoes. We ate homemade rolls, cake and ice cream. The fat pushed and strained against my clothes. For Memorial Day, we sipped cool drinks and ate lots of petitsfours. I couldn’t seem to fill the gap and begged for more and more.

I ate a lot to celebrate. Soon thereafter it was Valentine’s Day. I didn’t get any flowers. Instead I consumed all that chocolate candy. I sat and ate for hours.

Flag Day came and went and the homemade ice cream filled my gut. I didn’t get no exercise — just sat there on my ... derriere.

Washington’s birthday rolled right by next. From apples we had dumplings, cobbler, and pie. After consuming all that apple stuff, I left the table with a very

Oh Father’s Day, good Father’s Day — We ate a big old goose. Had Black Forest cake, veggies dripping with butter. I felt like a big stuffed moose.

By the Fourth of July I felt my body groan and keep on swellin’. But I faithfully watched the parade go by, chewing on hunks of watermelon. In August there were no celebrations and I tried to cut down on repasts. Though I tried and tried to diet, my enlarging body refused the fasts. OH NO! Here comes Labor Day — A long weekend to be eating. As I get dressed, I surprisingly find my belt ends won’t be meeting! I stuffed and gorged on hamburgers, hot dogs, chili, and lots of buns. I ate so much. I ate so fast. I think that weekend I gained, not pounds, but tons. I knew I was facing new holidays — Hanukkah and Yom Kipper. In friendship for my Jewish friends, I vowed to bust my zipper. On Columbus Day I ate boatloads of lasagna, fettuccine and spaghetti. All kinds of cheese and lots of bread, salad, pistachio and sauce with vermicelli. Halloween brought pumpkins and lots and lots of candy. My body stretched and swelled some more. The ache in my tummy was a real jim dandy. On Election Day we awaited the returns snacking on into the night. I ate so much my cheeks puffed out. I really was a sight!

I tried to cut down on Veteran’s Day on eating and snacking and such. But my body cried out in desperation so hard, I didn’t cut down much. Thanksgiving brought on turkey, fruit with sugar, starches and fat. Calorie upon calorie fell between my lips — Food had become my natural habitat. Oh Christmas, Happy Christmas — Soon the year would end. I had to hurry to consume all those goodies and my waistline ceased to bend! Then, at last, it was New Year’s Eve. I sat down, my resolutions to pen. I could start over all anew tomorrow and my fat body could begin to mend. BUT WAIT! Is that food I smell through the window coming from my neighbor’s dining room?? YES! The food for tomorrow is ready and I rush to meet my doom! And so, dear friends, as soon as I finish gnawing off this bone, Why don’t you just lay me down and slowly roll me home? Donna Burns lives (and eats!) in Logan, where she spends a lot of her time at Sunshine Terrace caring for her husband. We thought her poem was a humorous take on the love/hate relationship we sometimes have with food and so it would be appropriate for the holiday season.


If you Love me, come on over, I could be your four Leaf clover. I would be your good luck charm, You could hold me in your arms. I would tell you how I’m feeling, How my love for you is reeling. We could start a brand new trend, Love so true should never end. If you love me, come on over, I could be your four leaf clover. I would be your good luck charm, You could hold me in your arms. I would tell you how I’m feeling, How my heart for you is reeling. We could start a brand new trend, Love so true should never end.

“Slippery Sleddin’ Slope” by Mallory Robison Christiansen I breathe in And out Hop on And I’m off! Gliding, Spinning, Trees zooming by I feel the wind Flooding my ears. Skidding to a stop I feel the Icy Water In my face. Snow. Wiping it off I run up the Hill To go Again.

Note: This is a response to William Humphrey’s poem “My Window Pane,” published last week.

“New Year” by Terri Barnes The new year is coming, And changes are too, We make all these resolutions Of the new things we’ll do. I’ll be a better person, I’ll quit smoking too, I wont drink, ( as much) And i’ll try to endure

“The Blame” by Glenda Grindeland The rain is falling gently on my windowpane. I know we were both to blame. I sit by the kitchen window feeling sad and blue. All I can think of is how much I miss you. You did nothing wrong. I was just not strong. The heartache we caused each other, it was between us. All the heartache has broken our trust. The rainbow can be seen outside my kitchen windowpane. If you can let go of the past and forget the pain, Then I would know that we could start over again. We won’t make the same mistakes twice and there would be no beginning pain.

I am not Grass, wet Yet weak, Or a Poodle A petite Creature with twisted veins, I am strong as a bear, With a mind Of a comedian. I am not A maze, big with Many different turns. Nor am I An aged house, Abandoned. I am as tall As a tree I am a Kid.

Koontz in fine form with Judge sets bail for author ‘What the Night Knows’ of pedophilia how-to guide By The Associated Press

‘WHAT THE

Night Knows’ (Bantam, $28), by Dean Koontz: Dean Koontz, one of the suspense giants, has written one of his best horror novels in years. Koontz has been hit and miss lately, but he’s back in fine form with “What the Night Knows.” Over two decades ago, a madman stalked families, and his horrific crimes terrified various neighborhoods until he picked the wrong house. Teenager John Calvino came home unexpectedly and killed the intruder, leaving him the sole survivor. Over 20 years later, Calvino is a homicide detective with a family of his own — and a secret that haunts him. The murders are happening again, and the killer is using the same methods from

the earlier crimes. Calvino realizes that he and his family are in danger. What he never told anyone about that fateful night so long ago were the dying words of the killer, who promised to come back from the grave when Calvino had a family and then eliminate all of them. The idea of a ghost coming back to wreck vengeance and haunt someone isn’t new, but Koontz puts a spin on it that makes “What theNight Knows” so compelling, terrifying and fresh. Focusing the narrative on Calvino and his fear — and shifting away from the killer and his motives — tightens the pace and makes it all too surprising when the climax comes. “What the Night Knows” is true terror in print, and it will be interesting to see if the movie that likely follows will be half as good.
