When a new year meant a tour in the navy Edwardsville man recalls service in the Pacific in WWII By STEVE HORRELL Of The Edge Friday, Nov. 13, 1942, was not a lucky day for Walter Bratten. A life-long resident of Edwardsville, Bratten, on that morning, was a gunner ’s mate on the U.S.S. Cushing when it took fire from a Japanese ship, lost power, and sank in the South Pacific. The Cushing was one of several destroyers protecting larger American ships in the area. It sank about 3,000 yards from Savo Island. “When we were at Guadalcanal, we were the lead destroyer coming out of the slot,” said Bratten, now 88. “The Japanese tried to land four shiploads of troops against our people on Guadalcanal and we were trying to save the airfield . . . and that’s what we did.” To this day, Bratten can recall the sound of enemy gunfire. “They ripped into that ship, and whew! It made a terrible sound,” he says. “They knocked out the engine room, and we were sitting there, dead in the water. We couldn’t fire the gun because we couldn’t get ammunition up from below deck.” Without adequate power, an order to abandon ship came at 2:30 a.m. The water, Bratten recalls, was surprisingly, bracingly cold, and there were sharks to deal with as well. “The rafts were blown to bits. We jumped in with life jackets. I was moving my arms and swinging as much as I could, but we were moving against the tide. We didn’t get too far.” At 10 or 11 a.m. a “pretty good-sized boat” come by and fished Bratten and his colleagues out of the water, injured first, he says. Many of his colleagues were assigned to other vessels but Bratten was dropped off at a nearby island. Bratten is well aware that the heroics of the sailors onboard the Cushing that day helped save Henderson Field from a bombardment by Japanese forces. “It was one of the main battles of the South Pacific, and you better believe it rings a bell with me,” he said. Today the Cushing rests at the bottom of the waters around Savo Island. Bratten lives now in a modest home in Edwardsville, where he was interviewed re c e n t l y. H e w a s a p a p e r b o y f o r t h e Edwardsville Intelligencer in 1929, and one

Walter Bratten with a photograph of the ship he served on and a wall of portraits dedicated to family members that have served in the armed forces. of his best childhood memories is walking up to the Intelligencer and picking up his newspapers. When it came time to deliver, he slung a sackful over his shoulder and started walking the route. “They demanded they be on the steps,” he recalls. On a coffee table next to the living room couch is a black-and-white photograph of Bratten and his brother Maxwell, standing next to Robert Wadlow, “The Alton Giant,” who would grow to be 8-feet, 11-inches tall. “He lived over by my grandmother in Alton and when we’d go over there to play, he’d come down,” Bratten recalls. “He was something else. He couldn’t run very fast. We’d play ball, but he never hardly got to first base. On the Fourth of July he’d use his pinkie finger on his cap gun.” At the other end of the couch is another photo of Wadlow, this time with Bratten’s grandfather, father and great uncle. They

are standing next to a 1929 Chevrolet. “It was hell on axles,” Bratten says of the car. “They used to break all the time.” On the wall are photos of Bratten and his brothers. There were eight children in the family, eight boys and three girls. “I know what it’s like to eat beans, because we went through the Depression,” he says. “And it wasn’t easy, believe me.” Eventually his parents moved the family to a farm outside Edwardsville, and he began working at a tannery in Hartford. Bratten and five friends were working there on Dec. 7, 1941. All six of them, he says, rushed to St. Louis to sign up for the Navy. “They wanted us to go the next day, but we said ‘No, we’d like to spend Christmas at home’,” he said. “So that’s what we did. They swore us in, and they said ‘Be back here Jan. 2.’” “When we got to the Great Lakes, it

was so damn cold up there that year we couldn’t even go out and do any drilling,” he said. Bratten was in the Navy for all of a m o n t h b e f o re t h e y s h i p p e d h i m t o California and assigned him to the Cushing, which at the time was in San Francisco. The rescue from the South Pacific, he acknowledges, was a mixed blessing. He was transported to an island about 900 miles away, and for a while he loaded and unloaded “aviation gas” and barbed wire and drove a Japanese truck with the steering wheel on the right. “We had rice three times a day,” he said. “It had bugs in it, but we pitched the bugs aside and ate the rice. And drank the coconut juice. It was a laxative. Those were things you had to do to stay alive.” While he was there, Bratten contracted malaria and wound up being hospitalized eight or nine times. “I’m still drawing disability, and will be until the day they bury me,” he says. Bratten has retold his stories at several reunions. On Oct. 14, 2009, he traveled with other area veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit the war memorials. Bratten was a passenger in one of the two buses that carried about 25 people each. The buses came from Effingham to Edwardsville, and then drove on to Lambert airport. “We had a state police car in front of the lead bus and a one behind the second,” he said. “I couldn’t believe it. All I could say was ‘I guess they still remember us.’” To d a y y o u c a n s e e B r a t t e n a ro u n d Edwardsville wearing a black cap that says: U.S.S. Cushing/DD 376 SUNK/Nov. 13, 1942/Guadalcanal. And Bratten will tell you that, truth be told, he’s not really sure whether Friday, Nov. 13,1942, was lucky or unlucky. Then he will pause. Before he went out to sea, he recalls now, he bought himself a wristwatch. It was the first one he had ever owned, and he paid $15 for it. Then comes another memory: a couple of days before the Cushing sank he was in the shower when shots rang out, and he grabbed his clothes and dashed up to the main deck to man the guns. A furious gun battle with the Japanese ship ensued. Everything below deck was sealed off, he says, including the wristwatch, which was in his locker. “I guess Davey Jones is still using it,” he says.

on Friday, Jan. 29 at 4 p.m. in the Shoenberg Theater to celebrate the Missouri Botanical Garden’s 92nd annual Orchid Show, which makes its debut Friday. Jan. 30. The Singapore Botanic Gardens is a dynamic and living monument to the foresight of the founding fathers of Singapore. The Gardens, at its  present site, was founded in 1859 as a leisure garden and ornamental park. The scientific mission of the Gardens evolved when the colonial government assumed management and deployed Royal Botanic Garden, Kew-trained botanists and horticulturalists to administer the Gardens. Beginning in 1928, the Gardens set up laboratories to conduct the first experiments in orchid breeding and hybridization. The re s u l t s o f t h e s e e x p e r i m e n t s , free flowering and hardy orchid hybrids laid the foundation for the multi-million dollar cut flower industry. Since then, outstanding hybrids have been cultivated in the Gardens and received recognition worldwide. Alan Tan Chye Soon is one of the world’s experts on orchids; leading a team in Jan. 2008 to win the top award for International Display at the prestigious 19th World Orchid Conference in Miami. His lecture will kick-off the 2010 Orchid Show, which debuts Saturday, Jan. 30 at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Missouri Botanical Garden maintains one of the nation’s largest orchid collections, with over 8,100 individual orchid plants in  h u n d re d s o f v a r i e t i e s . T h e Orchid Show is the only time of year when a sizeable selection of plants from the collection is brought out en masse for public view. This year, be whisked away on a sophisticated French escape. Visitors will experience a butterfly’s view of paradise: a lush garden of curvilinear design, filled with hundreds of fresh-blooming orchids from the Garden’s historic collection.

Music

“Grease” – it’s still the word Taylor Hicks leads cast to The Fox By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge “Grease” is the word at the Fox Theatre from Tuesday, Jan. 12, through Sunday, Jan. 24, 2010. Whether you are a “Grease officinato” or you are a fan of Taylor Hicks, the winner of the 2006 “American Idol,” you need to get your tickets to this much loved musical. Nominated for the Tony Award, this production will take you back to the 1950s, with the poodle skirts, sock hops, leather jackets and all the much loved music you remember from the movie. After spending the summer with Sandy Dumbrowski, the new girl in town who was supposed be moving away, Danny Zuko’s world is thrown upside down when Sandy appears at Rydell High on the first day of school after a change of family plans. What follows is a rock n’ roll celebration of growin’ up, cruisin’ with friends and goin’ steady. The new production of “Grease” features songs from the smash hit 1978 motion picture for the first time ever in a Broadway production including “Sandy,” the Academy Award nominated song “Hopelessly Devoted to You,” “Grease” and “You’re the One That I Want,” both of which were number one hits on the Billboard Top 100 list. These songs will be heard in addition to the Jacobs/ Casey songs made famous by the original stage production including “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’” and “We Go Together.” Platinum-selling recording artist and “American Idol” winner, Taylor Hicks, stars in the production as “Teen Angel.” Hicks made his Broadway debut in the role of “Teen Angel” and has been on the road with “Grease” since the tour began on Dec. 2, 2008. “I had such a great experience performing

Joan Marcus/For The Edge

“Freddy, My Love” featuring Birdie Carroll, Allie Schulz, Kelly Felthous and Kate Morgan Chadwick. on Broadway,” says Hicks. “This is a great opportunity to visit old fans and new fans across the country while bringing them a great Broadway show!” Taylor Hicks achieved widespread fame in 2006 as a contestant on the hugely successful Fox singing competition “American Idol.” On May 24, 2006, Hicks was named the winner of the fifth season of “Idol” with over 63.4 million votes in total, during the live finale which aired to a worldwide audience of over 200 million viewers. On March 10, 2009, Taylor Hicks released his much anticipated new studio album “The Distance,” featuring the single “Seven Mile Breakdown.”

“Grease” originated in Chicago and made its premiere at The Kingston Mines Theater in 1971 before making its New York premiere off-Broadway at the Eden Theatre on Feb. 14, 1972. After 128 sold-out performances, the show made the transition to Broadway taking up residence at the Broadhurst Theatre on June 7, 1972. “Grease” was nominated for seven Tony Awards in its spectacular initial run. On Nov. 21, 1972, the show moved to the Royale Theatre before making its final transfer on Jan. 20, 1980, to the Majestic Theatre. It closed as the longest running show in Broadway history after playing 3,388 performances. In

1978, “Grease” became a hugely popular feature film starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in the lead roles. “Grease”, which opened on Broadway on Sunday, Aug. 19, 2007, was born out of NBC’s landmark talent competition TV series, “Grease: You’re The One That I Want.” The weekly talent competition drew 90 million viewers, and allowed America to vote for its favorite contestants to play the lead roles of “Sandy” and “Danny” on Broadway. Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award-winner Kathleen Marshall (The Pajama Game, Wonderful Town), “Grease” features book, music and lyrics by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey. Additional songs from the film are by Barry Gibb, John Farrar, Louis St. Louis and Scott Simon. “Grease” features scenic design by Tony Award winner Derek McLane (33 Variations), costume design by two-time Tony Award winner Martin Pakledinaz (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Kiss Me Kate), lighting design by Tony Award winner Kenneth Posner (The Coast of Utopia, Wicked) and sound design by Brian Ronan (Spring Awakening, Curtains). “Grease” is produced on tour by Paul Nicholas and David Ian, Nederlander Presentations, Inc. and Terry Allen Kramer by arrangement with Robert Stigwood. The production will play the Fabulous Fox Theatre on Jan. 12 through Jan. 24, 2010. Performances are Tuesday to Saturday evenings, 8 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays, 2 p.m.; and Sunday, Jan. 17 at 7:30 p.m. There is also a weekday matinee on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 1 p.m. Ticket prices range from $24 to $66 and are subject to change.

“Invictus”

Clint Eastwood’s latest is a sports film less about what’s on the playing field than what’s happening in the stands. It’s the story of South Africa’s sea change under Nelson Mandela (Morgan Freeman) told through the unlikely prism of sport. It comes off like a case study in leadership, perhaps a bit clinical and limited, but still deeply revealing. When Mandela takes office in 1994, he embraces the rugby national team, the Springboks, and seeks to turn a symbol of apartheid into a beacon of hope. It feels like destiny fulfilled hearing Freeman — who has long sought to play the role — speak Mandela’s halting, humble speech. No one could be better. “Invictus” is dripping with inspiration, and Eastwood’s extraordinary late period remains a good place to find it. With a blond, beefed-up Matt Damon as the rugby team’s captain and one truly terrible song from a South African boy band. RATED: PG-13 for brief strong language. RUNNING TIME: 132 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“Avatar”

James Cameron’s 3-D epic has all the smack of a Film Not To Miss — a movie whose effects are clearly revolutionary, a spectacle that millions will find adventure in. But it nevertheless feels unsatisfying and somehow lacks the pulse of a truly alive film. The plot is a little like the American frontier circa the 1800s, only transposed to the year 2154 on the faraway moon Pandora, the home of Native Americanlike, aqua blue, 10-foot tall creatures called the Na’vi. Arriving are imperialistic humans to plunder, and scientists to study. Dr. Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver) leads a team that explores in Na’vi bodies, avatars, controlled remotely. A sense of discovery — of Cameron’s digital world of Pandora, of the impressive techno-filmmaking — makes “Avatar” often thrilling. The environmentalist and anti-war messages resonate with contemporary troubles, but they also seem odd coming from such a swaggering behemoth of a movie. One senses Cameron’s zest lies in the battle, not in peace. With Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana. RATED: PG-13 for intense epic battle sequences and warfare, sensuality, language and some smoking. RUNNING TIME: 161 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and half stars out of four.

“Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel”

A movie that offers exactly two big laughs for its kiddo audience — one involving passing gas, the other a shot to the crotch. In the considerable gap between these two bits of comic invention, you have plenty of time to ponder why the movie turns on the idea of Dave (Jason Lee) sending Alvin, Simon and Theodore to high school. Do chipmunks, particularly world-famous rock star chipmunks, really need a diploma? Aren’t they already smarter than Dave? While there’s no story, the movie does double the number of rodents, introducing the girl group, The Chipettes. Alvin and the boys compete against The Chipettes in a talent show, while that darned Ian (David Cross) tries to kidnap the ... oh, why bother going into detail? Just know there’s twice the chipmunks and about half the laughs of the 2007 holiday hit. RATED: PG for some crude humor. RUNNING TIME: 89 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One star out of four.

“The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”

Terry Gilliam’s film is more than a peculiar coda for Heath Ledger, the star who died midway through production. With relatively few changes, Gilliam and co-writer Charles McKeown refashioned the script so that Ledger’s part could be finished with three actors filling in: Johnny Depp, Jude Law and Colin Farrell. Farrell is the best and most dynamic of the bunch. The resulting film is an outlandish juggling act. It teeters, creaks and breaks at the seams but somehow holds together better than you would expect. It’s overstuffed and ultimately spins out of control, but one leaves the theater impressed at Gilliam’s resilience in creating such ornate tales. Christopher Plummer plays Dr. Parnassus, whose traveling show leads people through a mirror and into a world of imagination (which can look something like the Monty Python cartoons Gilliam used to animate). Tom Waits plays an amiable devil in a bowler hat. RATED: PG for violent images, some sensuality, language and smoking.

RUNNING TIME: 122 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“It’s Complicated”

Writer-director Nancy Meyers’ latest relationship comedy isn’t what the name promises at all. It’s simple, almost as simple about grown-up romance and heartache as the average Hollywood teen comedy is about youthful love and sex. That said, a simple-minded story can benefit enormously with Meryl Streep on screen for almost an entire movie. Streep is charming as a divorced woman in an affair with her remarried ex-husband (Alec Baldwin) and a flirtation with a new man (Steve Martin). Too bad Streep puts on this nice show for such a superficial story, and for that matter, too bad for Baldwin, Martin and the rest of an earnest supporting cast led by John Krasinski. Meyers serves up fluff as light as the pastries Streep’s character bakes for a living, a story to make divorced people wish their broken marriages and the ugly aftermath could be as fun and frolicsome as this. RATED: R for some drug content and sexuality. RUNNING TIME: 118 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“Sherlock Holmes”

Robert Downey Jr. is so NOT Sherlock Holmes. That’s not a hindrance — in fact, it’s a big help — as he and Guy Ritchie bring Arthur Conan Doyle’s Victorian-age detective into the modern world. Enough of the trappings are left in their brawn-over-brain action romp to make Downey a reasonably faithful embodiment of Holmes. And of course, this is Downey, whose career resurgence rests on his ability to make the most unlikely role his own. The movie’s big failing is the drab story, a bit of nonsense revolving around a secret society and potentially supernatural doings. But Ritchie compensates with exhilarating action, and the movie offers engaging interplay among Downey and Jude Law as Holmes sidekick Watson, Rachel McAdams as the woman in the detective’s life, Eddie Marsan as Scotland Yard Inspector Lestrade and Mark Strong as the bad guy. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some startling images and a scene of suggestive material. RUNNING TIME: 129 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“The White Ribbon” grim but gorgeous By DAVID GERMAIN Associated Press Michael Haneke’s “The White Ribbon” is a masterpiece, but a demanding one. The Austrian writer-director has crafted a gorgeously gloomy parable exploring the origins of hatred, malice and communal barbarity, the sort of madness of the masses that would explode in Germany a generation later. “The White Ribbon” makes squeamish voyeurs of viewers as they watch a small German town come unhinged amid unexplained violence and tragedy as World War I approaches. The words dour and “disturbing characterize Haneke’s films, which include “The Piano Teacher,” ‘’Hidden,” ‘’Time of the Wolf” and “Funny Games,” which he remade in an English-language version with Naomi Watts and Tim Roth two years ago. “The White Ribbon” is grim even by Haneke’s standards, a meticulously composed production whose exquisite black-and-white images by cinematographer Christian Berger help create the illusion of a window in time looking back to the early 20th century. Winner of the top prize, the Palme d’Or, at last May’s Cannes Film Festival, “The White Ribbon” moves with stately melancholy as the local schoolteacher (Christian Friedel as an in-the-flesh young man, Ernst Jacobi providing his voice-over narration as an old man) recalls the strange happenings that begin in summer 1913. S o m e e v i l d o e r s e t s a w i re that trips the horse of the town doctor (Rainer Bock), who is gravely injured. A farmer ’s wife mysteriously falls to her death. A cabbage field is ravaged, a building

While the townsfolk fret over these crimes and misdemeanors, they continue living lives that emphasize cruelty over compassion. The one light of hope is the pure and taintless love that grows between the teacher and a young nanny (Leonie Benesch). The faces of the townsfolk are striking, particularly the children’s. Haneke’s casting crew met with

about 7,000 children, choosing faces that look as though they could be staring out of grainy photos from the era. The adults in the town are nameless, Haneke identifying them only by their trade or position: the Baron and Baroness (Ulrich Tukur and Ursina Lardi), the Pastor (Burghart Klaussner), the Midwife (Susanne Lothar) and the Farmer (Branko Samarovski). Only the young daughters and

sons have names, children reared in severe, even tyrannical devotion to puritan preaching that their lustful, abusive parents fail to follow; children who will emerge from this incubator of malevolence as the generation unleashing the atrocities of Nazi Germany. These children already may have put that inhumanity into practice. The film hints that the young ones could be responsible for the town’s terrible misdeeds, though Haneke

never says for sure as he’s not the sort of storyteller to make things easy on his audience by spelling out who’s to blame. Our own times are tough, and “The White Ribbon” is anything but slaphappy Hollywood escapism. It’s an eminently worthwhile journey if you’re up for the challenge, though. And hey, a story this solemn, this depressing just might remind you that no matter how hard things are now, it could be worse.

“It’s Complicated” has its target By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge It’s Complicated is a film for a very specific segment of the American people. It’s for those who’ve suffered through divorce and come out looking the better for it. It’s for those who run their own businesses and have absolutely no concern when money is the topic of conversation. It’s for cooks who can whip up a feast without dirtying a single dish and for parents who have plenty of room if all three of their adult children decide to drop in for the night and stay a weekend. It’s for those who smoke a little pot to loosen up and don’t really have a problem letting everyone know about it. It’s for beautiful people who are still beautiful in their late ‘50s, despite cutesy claims to have been victimized by the ravages of time or health concerns that don’t really have evident symptoms. It’s complicated, for sure, and a film I struggled to identify with in any single way. The luminescent and incomparable Meryl

January 14, 2010

“It’s Complicated” RATED: R for some drug content and sexuality. RUNNING TIME: 129 minutes. ROBERT’S RANKING: two stars out of four. Streep returns to her Sophie’s Choice-style decision-making area in the movie as her character, Jane Adler, has to choose between continuing an affair with her ex-husband, Jake (Alec Baldwin), or beginning one anew with her architect, Adam (Steve Martin). Jake is a lout who left her ten years earlier for a much younger, angrier woman (Lake Bell), who then stepped out on him to get pregnant with an unbearable little boy (Emjay Anthony). Adam, on the other hand, is a total mensch. He’s polite, sweet, and appropriately romantic as he tip-toes back into the dating world, almost three years after his own nasty breakup. He falls fast for her while re-designing the kitchen in her

already perfect country villa. The side of me who objects to divorce as a matter of principle thinks that it should be Adam only that catches her eye. But there’s a fair case for Jake to be the one to win her over. He’s the father of her three gorgeous children (Zoe Kazan, Hunter Parrish, and Caitlin Fitzgerald) and they have a history that obviously means a lot to the both of them. We wonder who will win out, but are either of them deserving? As Jake and Jane carry on their affair, we feel worse for her. She’s lying to her kids, misleading her friends (a roundtable of wellknown Hollywood fifty-somethings) into thinking she’s finally happy, and, worst of all, she’s conflicted with guilt she didn’t expect. For a comedy, this film is surprisingly heavy-something writer/director Nancy Meyers has done throughout her career to great success. Some might think Jane’s leading the charmed life, but it’s ultimately her future son-in-law, Harley (played wonderfully by the affable John Krasinski), who knows the hard truth. He’s unwittingly privy to the details of Jane’s

rendezvous with Jake and struggles mightily to keep their secret. Krasinski’s so skilled at playing this quirky, funny type of pie-eyed character that I did find something in the movie to identify with after all. His awkward naiveté comes through best when he’s trying to hide someone in plain sight or mask Mom and Dad’s marijuana smoke at a very crowded party. It’s why he’s so stellar on The Office each week. The hunky Baldwin, who plays Jake in a similar vein as 30 Rock’s Jack Donaghy, and the charming Martin, a performer I think could do anything he wanted if he put his mind to it, are both the cat’s meow. It’s going to be a absolute treat to see them co-host this year ’s Oscar telecast, especially since their fair co-star is a lock for another nomination, (for this summer’s foodie hit Julie & Julia). To be fair, I probably stretched the Sophie’s Choice reference a bit. Picking between either of these guys isn’t like choosing which of your kids will live or die, but I bet there are a fair amount of unlucky-in-love ladies out there who might disagree with me. And all of them are going to love this movie.

Travel Travel briefs Pacific War Museum in Texas expands gallery named for Bush F R E D E R I C K S B U R G , Te x a s (AP) — The National Museum of the Pacific War has expanded its George H.W. Bush Gallery with new multimedia exhibits, testimonials and artifacts about the conflict in Asia during World War II. In-depth exhibits include a look at the impact and destruction of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Among the artifacts on display is an HA-19, one of five Japanese twoman submarines that took part in the attack. The opening of the new space was timed to coincide with the 68th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks on Dec. 7. The dedication was attended by the former president for whom the gallery is named. Bush, who lives in Houston, is a World War II naval aviator who survived being shot down by the Japanese over the Pacific. About 4,000 people attended the ceremony. The museum is managed by the Nimitz Foundation, named for Fredericksburg native Adm. Chester Nimitz. He commanded American naval forces in the Pacific during the war. The $15.5 million museum expansion had been planned for about a decade. Details at http:// w w w. n i m i t z - m u s e u m . o r g / . Fredericksburg is about 70 miles west of Austin, Texas.

Feds recommend more cave restrictions to stem bat disease ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Federal wildlife officials hoping to check

the spread of a disease killing hibernating bats in Eastern states a re re c o m m e n d i n g s t e p s t h a t states farther west should take if “white-nose syndrome” strikes. T h e U . S . F i s h a n d Wi l d l i f e Service on Dec. 4 sent recommendations to state and federal land management agencies in Ohio and several other states outlining precautions for hibernation caves or mines hit by white-nose. They recommend closing affected caves, with a possible exception for researchers. They also recommend research-only access for caves within 75 miles of an affected site. White-nose is estimated to have killed more than a million bats in nine states since it was first noticed in New York in 2006. The syndrome is named for the sugary smudges of fungus on the noses and wings of affected bats.

Budget carrier easyJet pulls out of regional UK airport LONDON (AP) — Low-cost airline easyJet PLC says it is closing its operations at a regional British airport and cutting capacity at its home base of London’s Luton airport by 20 percent.

Santa Barbara touting connections to “It’s Complicated” Montreal’s midwinter party: and other films SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) High Lights Festival, — If you liked the backdrop for “It’s Complicated,” the new comedy Feb. 18-28 about love and divorce starring Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, you might enjoy a visit to Santa Barbara, where parts of the movie were set. Santa Barbara’s Conference and Visitors Bureau has set up a dedicated Web site for fans of the film at http://www.santabarbaraca. com/filmtour/its-complicated. In addition to scenes filmed in residential areas of Montecito, about 5 miles from Santa Barbara, other scenes were shot in front of downtown landmarks including the Santa Barbara County Courthouse and historic El Paseo, California’s first shopping center, which dates to the 1920s. Santa Barbara is also celebrating a century of filmmaking this year. An early silent movie studio called the Flying A opened there in 1910, and many movies have shot scenes in the area over the decades, from Cecil B. DeMille’s “The Ten Commandments” (1923) to “Sunset Boulevard” (1950) to “Sideways” (2004). For detailed information on local movie sites and history, visit http://www.SantaBarbaraCA.com/ filmtour.

Octarium to perform in Florissant By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge There are some singing voices that need no instrument to accompany them. They are crystal clear and brilliant with sound and strength. Combine eight beautiful crystal clear brilliant voices and you have the group Octarium. On Saturday, Jan. 16, at 8 p.m., the Florissant Fine Arts Council is proud to welcome Kansas City’s hottest new a cappella group, Octarium, with “Should Have Been Choral,” the group’s concert collection of orchestral pieces, symphonies, Broadway tunes, and pop hits that have been retooled for choral voicing. Octarium, which is Latin for “eight as one,” is renowned for their perfectly blended voices. Octarium was founded in 2003 by Krista Lang Blackwood, the current artistic director. As the director of choirs at a large Kansas City church, Blackwood hired eight section leaders to support her choral program in 2001. As the program developed, the section leaders formed an octet to provide music at special liturgies. The singers began to read each other’s minds; taking unplanned breaths together, phrasing identically and beautifully without discussing it first and creating impromptu choral dynamics in rehearsal and performance. This kind of artistry inspired Blackwood to expand beyond the walls of the church. The “eight as one” group brings eight individuals together, but they are separately amazing talents with accomplishments of their own. Mezzo-soprano Andrea Coleman, hailed by the Boston Phoenix as “confident and vocally authoritative,” received her choral training under Simon Carrington at the University of Kansas. She earned her master’s degree at New England Conservatory and has since appeared with the Minnesota Opera, Duluth Festival Opera and Glimmerglass Opera, as well as the Back Bay Chorale and the New England Conservatory Percussion Ensemble. Coleman has received first place in the Nebraska District M e t ro p o l i t a n O p e r a N a t i o n a l Council Auditions, second place in the Graduate Voice Division of the International Schubert Club Scholarship Competition, and was awarded the Stephen Shrestinian Award for Excellence by the Boston Lyric Opera. Alto Leah Hamilton Jenkins is a graduate of the University of Kansas and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Vocal Performance. She has performed chorally and as a soloist with the top ensembles and consorts at both KU and the RSAMD. With a voice “full of warmth” and a “beautiful sense of line” (KC Metropolis), Jenkins has performed under the baton of Simon Carrington, Jing Ling Tam, Jo-

For The Edge

Octarium Michael Scheibe, Hilary Apfelstadt and Andre Thomas. Active in opera and musical theatre, Jenkins has appeared with the Kansas City Lyric Opera Chorus, New Theatre Restaurant in Overland Park, Springfield Regional Opera (MO), Springfield Symphony Orchestra (MO) and Springfield Little Theatre (MO). Jenkins is a recipient of the National Choral Award (2000) and the Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship for Musical Study (2004). She was named in Go Magazine’s 20 under 30 (2008) and Springfield Business Journal’s top 40 under 40 (2009) for her work in the Arts in Springfield, Mo. Tenor Jason Parr began singing with Octarium in 2007 and is an integral voice on both the Hodie and Essentials albums. Jason received his Bachelors of Fine Arts degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Kansas. During his studies at KU, he sang in the studios of internationally accomplished musicians Norman Paige, tenor, and Joyce Castle, mezzo-soprano. Also during this time, Jason sang in numerous choirs and ensembles under the direction of Simon Carrington, founder of the acclaimed British ensemble, The King’s Singers giving him the small ensemble experience that enables him to be integral part of the living harmonic instrument that is Octarium. Alto Jaime Scherrer graduated in May 2006 from the University of Miami Frost School of Music, where she earned the degree of Bachelor of Music in music education and sang with select vocal ensembles under the direction of Dr. Jo-Michael

Scheibe. In 2006, Scherrer received 2nd place in Florida’s Sweet Adeline’s competition and served as music chair from 2004-2006 of the Sigma Alpha Iota professional music fraternity for women. Scherrer has also appeared in The Music Man and 42nd Street at Theatre in the Park and Jekyll & Hyde at the Just Off Broadway Theatre. Lyric Baritone Brady Shepherd, one of Octarium’s founding voices, is a former student of the UMKC Conservatory of Music where he received vocal training from Michael Cousins. With a voice that has been described as “luxuriant and supple” (Paul Horsley, Kansas City Star), Shepherd boasts a wideranging performance resume that includes roles such as Marco in Gianni Schicci, Lescaut in Manon, Harlekin in Ariadne Auf Naxos, Moon/Starveling Schlucker in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Billy Lawlor in 42nd Street, Judas in Godspell, and John Truett in Meet Me in St. Louis. Shepherd was privileged to sing under choral masters such as Eph Ely and Jing Ling Tam, which deepened his appreciation for the choral setting and his varied vocal experience brings a depth and a breadth to Octarium’s choral blend. Soprano Renee Stanley is a native of Lawrence, Kansas and graduated from the University of Kansas in 2003. At KU, Renee performed with the Chamber Choir under the direction of Simon Carrington, and she toured with the group to the ACDA Regional Convention in Oklahoma City in 2000, the ACDA National Convention in San Antonio

in 2001, Hungary in 1999 and Brazil in 2001. She also performed with the KU Jazz Singers under the direction of Mitos Andaya and appeared with the Collegium Musicum and Oread Consort. Renee’s innate musicality, sensible tone and “lovely, silvery voice” (Kansas City Star) provides Octarium’s lauded choral sonority its pristine and peerless upper register. Renee is a founding member of Octarium and currently resides in Seattle, Washington. Tenor Jay Van Blaricum adds a lucid, balanced tone color to Octarium’s sound. Following a musically active childhood, Van Blaricum studied music composition and theory at the University of Kansas under Charles Hoag and Mark Holmberg, receiving a B.M. in Music Theory with Distinction in 2001. During each of his undergraduate years at KU, Van Blaricum sang tenor with various ensembles under the direction of Simon Carrington, Mitos Andaya, and Lincoln Andrade, including Oread Consort, Chamber Choir and Collegium Musicum. With the vocal sextet Oread Consort, he performed Thomas Tallis’ Lamentations of Jeremiah, without a conductor, for the American Musicological Society National Convention in Kansas City in 1999. Touring with Chamber Choir, Van Blaricum performed throughout Hungary in 1999, Brazil in 2001, and at the ACDA Southwestern Regional Convention in Oklahoma City in 2000. Now in his fourth season with Octarium, Van Blaricum has composed and arranged several pieces for the group, including Long, Long

Ago, an original work featured on Octarium’s 2007 release, Hodie. A m y Wa l d ro n , s o p r a n o , i s currently seeking a Master of Music degree, emphasizing choral conducting, from the Conservatory of Music and Dance at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. She is also Ensemble Liaison and singer for The Simon Carrington Chamber Singers, which premiered on May 30, 2009 in Kansas City, Missouri and Lawrence, Kansas. Amy was awarded a Bachelor of Music Education degree with a vocal performance minor from the University of Kansas in 1998. While at KU, she studied choral music with Simon Carrington. As a member of ensembles under Mr. Carrington’s direction, Amy performed the Mozart Coronation Mass at Carnegie Hall in May 1996 and toured England (1997), France (1998) and Hungary (1999). In the fall of 1997, Amy traveled to Budapest, Hungary, to study choral music and conducting with renowned conductor and educator Éva Kollár at Eötvös Loránd University. While there, she also sang and traveled as a member of the Budapest Monteverdi Choir, which was awarded the Grand Prize at the International Choir Competition in Sligo, Ireland that year. S o p r a n o A s h l e y Wi n t e r s , a founding member of Octarium, has “a voice as sparkling-clear as a chilly mountain stream” (Paul Horsley, The Independent Insider). She has sung professionally with the Kansas City Lyric Opera, the Lawrence Chamber Orchestra, St Andrew’s Episcopal Church (Kansas City), and the Kaw Valley Community Chorus. She has also had the honor, in a choral setting, to sing under the batons of John Nelson, Ronald L. Shirey, Sigrid Johnson, Paul W. Wiens, and Mary Hopper. Bass-Baritone Benjamin Winters, a founding member of Octarium, “offers Octarium a magnificent base around which to build its sound” (Arnold Epley, KC Metropolis). Winters received his Bachelor ’s degree in Vocal Performance from the Wheaton Conservatory of Music and completed his Masters of Music (also in Vocal Performance) from the University of Kansas, where he studied with John Stephens and sang Sarastro in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and the title character in Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado. While a young artist at Opera North, Winters “wisely underplayed the role of Peter Quince, putting over the text with aplomb, singing firmly and making the best dramatic impression” (David Shengold, Opera News).

The Arts Artistic adventures Kemper Museum to host Sharon Lockhart exhibit Los Angeles-based conceptual artist Sharon Lockhart creates films and photographs that are at once rigorously formal and deeply humanistic, meticulously observing the details of everyday life while also probing the limits and intersections between the two mediums. As much as Lockhart’s photographs reveal cinematic qualities of staging and casting, so too do her films frequently engage a static camera and angles that recall photographic practices. In February 2010 the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum will present Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break, a one-person exhibition showcasing the artist’s most recent series. Inspired by the shifting world economy and its effect on American labor, Lockhart spent a year observing and engaging workers at the Bath Iron Works, a major shipyard and U.S. Navy supplier located in Bath, Maine. The resulting works, collectively titled Lunch Break, include two large-scale film installations and three distinct sets of photographs that together explore the

daily routines and social activities of workers during their time away from production. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the titular film Lunch Break, which consists of a single, slow-moving tracking shot down a long and seemingly endless interior corridor. To create the piece, Lockhart recorded a ten-minute walk-through — her first use of a mobile camera — then employed digital technology to stretch the length to eighty minutes. This extreme slow motion imbues ordinary lunchtime activities — eating, reading, talking and sleeping — with an almost baroque sense of anticipation, yet the film ultimately refuses cathartic narrative closure. The result is a meditative reflection, devoid of sentiment, on aspects of factory life that typically remain hidden from outside view. By contrast, the second film, Exit, is divided into five sections — one for each day of the workweek — and depicts workers as they depart the complex at the end of their shifts. Employing a static camera, the film recalls Louis Lumière’s historic Leaving the Lumière Factory (1895), a forty-six-second black-and-white short that is widely considered to be the first true motion picture. Yet Lockhart subtly reverses Lumière’s viewpoint.

Rather than surveil workers as they stream toward an exterior camera, she films from within factory grounds, focusing on workers’ backs as they seemingly stage their own exits. The first of the three series of photographs centers on workers’ lunch boxes, emphasizing the ways in which stickers, labels, contents and other minute details suggest the personalities of their owners. A second series is devoted to the independent businesses that exist within the factory — makeshift booths where workers sell hot dogs, coffee and other items to their colleagues. The third series consists of carefully composed images of workers lingering around lunch tables, at once recalling and revising historical traditions of group portraiture. A fully illustrated color catalog will accompany the exhibition and will be distributed by the University of Chicago Press. The catalog includes essays by Eckmann and Matthias Michalka as well as an analysis of Lockhart’s creative process through an interview with artist James Benning. Also featured will be previously unpublished photographs by Lockhart that document, illustrate and recall workers’ social activities.

High Efficiency for Low Cost Heating

Artistic adventures Wash. U. to host Circus INcognitus

Garden to present “Images of Costa Rica”

Jamie Adkins can walk on wire, stand atop unsupported ladders, do handstands off the back of a chair and juggle just about anything. But in Circus INcognitus, this internationally acclaimed clown, balancing artist and acrobat — a featured soloist with Cirque du Soleil and Montreal’s Cirque Éloize — must attempt the one thing he fears most: public speaking. Next month Adkins will bring Circus INcognitus, his family friendly solo show, to Washington University’s Edison Theatre. The one-time-only performance, which begins at 11 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 16, will launch Edison’s annual ovations for young people series, which presents specially priced matinees for audiences of all ages. Tickets are $10, though subscriptions to all four ovations for young people events are available for $6 each. Tickets are available at the Edison Theatre Box Office and through all MetroTix outlets. Edison Theatre is located in the Mallinckrodt Student Center, 6445 Forsyth Blvd. For more information, call (314) 935-6543 or email edison@wustl.edu. Circus INcognitus Combining a dancer’s grace with a silent film star’s manic energy, Adkins uses modest, everyday objects to fashion elaborate circus routines that are at once funny, breathtaking and surprisingly poignant. The hour-long show begins with Adkins entering a dark and nearly empty stage, flashlight in hand, searching for a comically long light switch. Dressed casually in baggy pants and suspenders, he is too shy to address the waiting microphone but allows his physical gifts to speak for him as he struggles to articulate ideas about what a performance should be. Things begin simply enough. A ping-pong ball bounces on a wooden chair seat. A crumpled piece of paper refuses to be discarded. A bowler hat twirls up and down Adkins’ arms. Yet the routines grow increasingly spectacular and outrageous as Adkins duels with a pair of wildly roaming ladders and does handstands atop a not-so-very-tight rope. “Though Mr. Adkin’s best routines draw OOHS and AHS, he is just as successful at drawing laughs,” notes The New York Times. The New York Daily Gazette adds that, “Adkins hasn’t reinvented juggling or clowning, he’s just made them more interesting to watch through the powers of personality and grace.”

“Images of Costa Rica,” an exhibit of stunning images by nature photographer Gregory Basco will be on display at the Missouri Botanical Garden from Jan. 8 through Mar. 14. The photographs document the exquisite natural beauty and rich biodiversity of Costa Rica. The exhibit will be displayed through Mar. 14 on the upper level of the Ridgway Visitor Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m daily and is included with Garden admission. A political scientist by training, Gregory Basco has researched environmental politics and ecotourism in Costa Rica’s conservation sector for nearly 15 years. He is also a former Missouri Botanical Garden employee, having worked in the Garden’s education division. Basco now dedicates himself full-time to photography and his Costa Rica photo tour company, Foto Verde Tours. His photographs have been published by Canon, Lonely Planet, National Geographic, and Newsweek and have appeared in numerous magazines, books, calendars, and public exhibits. Because Basco believes a good nature photograph should be captured in camera, he minimizes postproduction work in the computer, limiting it to the common steps necessary for processing digital images. “I hope my images represent more than a simple documentation of nature,” said Basco. “I strive to capture images that are truly art and that portray to the viewer the mystery, abundance, and wonder of Costa Rica’s ecosystems, flora, and fauna. I hope I’ve succeeded, and that my passion for rainforests and the stunning biodiversity they contain shows through in the images.” The Missouri Botanical Garden conducts research in the rugged region of Mesoamerica, which is known for exceptional biological diversity. In Costa Rica, the Garden has a botanist in-country who leads a collaborative project to produce a Spanish-language manual of Costa Rican plants. “Images of Costa Rica” is included with Missouri Botanical Garden admission of $8; St. Louis City and County residents enjoy discounted admission of $4 and free admission on Wednesday and Saturday mornings until noon. Children ages 12 and under and Garden members are free. The Missouri Botanical Garden is located at 4344 Shaw Blvd. in south St. Louis, easily accessible from Interstate 44 at the Vandeventer exit.

Charles Earlin speaks his vows as he places a wedding band on the finger of his bride, Frieda Simmons, during their wedding ceremony Thursday at Eden Village’s Senior Living Center.

A Christmas to remember B By JULIA BIGGS Of The Edge During this season of love and gift giving, a Glen Carbon couple demonstrated a very special act of love and Christmas Eve became an extra special holiday in their lives.  Charles Earlin and Frieda Simmons, both 83 years old and residents of Eden Gardens, were married during a wedding ceremony at Eden Senior Living. Charles and Frieda met in Collinsville two years ago.  Both residents of Woodland Towers in Collinsville at the time, Charles, who is legally blind, said neither of them was “looking for a mate” at the time they met. “But I heard her talking and laughing, and so I wanted to get acquainted with her, and I did,” Charles said. A very friendly, outgoing and determined man, Charles took action.  “I called her on the phone and I said, 'What are you doing?'” Charles explained.  “She said, 'I’m making a fresh pot of coffee,' and I said, 'I’ll be right up.'  And I went up and I think that’s what started it.”  Their friendship grew quite quickly as Charles explained that they both have a lot

January 14, 2010

in common.  “She likes the same things that I like,” he said.  “The same things to eat, programs on TV – all kinds of things.  We’re just compatible, best I can tell, all the way around.” The true test of love came a few months later when Charles broke his hip.  “I was in three different hospitals and two different nursing homes and everyone of them, just about every day, she was there with me,” Charles said.  “She dearly loves me I know because she takes care of me.” Charles and Frieda’s relationship blossomed as they spent more time together.  They travelled together on a group trip to Arthur and enjoyed a tour of the Christmas lights around St. Louis.  They also regularly attend church together in Fairview Heights. “Everybody got to know her,” Charles said.  “They got to know her as Sugar-Booger cause I love her so much.” Soon Charles knew it was time to ask Sugar-Booger the big question. “I romanced her a little bit and here we are,” he said. The wedding was conducted in Eden Senior Living Apartment's second floor

lounge Christmas Eve.  Charles said that once they saw the lounge, he knew it was the perfect location.  He described it as a “beautiful place with a grand piano and a nice big Christmas tree.” Perhaps no one was more excited about the wedding than Eden Senior Living Administrator Tina Kassing Meurer.  “I thought Tina was going to jump out of her skin” Frieda said about the moment they sprung the news to Tina. “In over 30 years we’ve been here, it’s the first wedding with our residents,” Tina said. “This is really going to be big for both of them.  Both are great people – both are personality plus.” Tina was especially delighted that the couple chose to share their special celebration with the Eden family since the couple had only been Eden Gardens residents a few weeks. Frieda, surprised from all the attention their wedding has brought, was a little amazed to have found someone to share in her life.  “I’ve been by myself for 23 years,” Frieda said.  “My husband passed away, and I’ve been by myself for 23 years.” It’s a second marriage for Charles as well. 

He proudly remarked, “I was married 60 years in a row.”  He also noted that his wife had passed away and he had been alone for five years before he met Frieda. The couples’ immediate family was equally thrilled for the couple and joined in the celebration.  Freida’s daughter flew in from Colorado for the special occasion and her son-in-law, Roy Hubbard, a minister presided over the ceremony.  Charles daughter Gail Wilson, a resident of Edwardsville, served as the maid of honor.  David Eddelman, a friend from church, served as best man. The newly wed couple invited the family and guests into the Eden Senior Living dining room to eat following the ceremony, and then everyone returned to Mr. and Mrs. Charles Earlin’s Eden Gardens home for cake and refreshments.  “This marriage is more for companionship than anything else,” Charles said.  “Both of us like to went nuts sitting in our apartments staring at the walls.  Our union will be that we’ll be together. It will be companionship.  We enjoy each other’s company.” “I want everyone to know how much I love her,” Charles said. “She’s my pride and joy, and I love her to death.”

Family Focus Bright, Bleiler among those making slopes stylish NEW YORK (AP) — Many toptier female skiers and snowboarders have mastered the cool-girl look that makes them style role models for anyone not interested in mimicking the Michelin man on these cold winter days. Snow stars Torah Bright, Gretchen Bleiler, Sarah Burke and Lindsey Vonn tend to wear sleek, colorful and comfortable outfits that use technical fabrics, trendy touches and the global influences they see as they travel practically year-round in search of snow. It’s worth noting that all four women all are blessed with modellike looks, big smiles and long blond hair. Outerwear companies have taken notice and are working with them as design collaborators. Their style profiles: T O R A H B R I G H T , SNOWBOARDER: “Fashion is a huge part of the snowboard world,” says Bright, who is eagerly testing out a fitted, skinny-leg snowpant this season. She hopes it’ll be part of her third consumer collection for Roxy due out in the fall. A slimmer fit, satin linings and fashion-forward details — like the covered buttons and empire waist of her peacoat-style jacket in stores now — are all part of “bringing some girl power to the hill,” she says. Karbon, the brand outfitting the Australian Olympic team, used the cut of Bright’s favored silhouette for the uniform. Bright says she’s moving toward an edgier look, adding exposed zippers and magnet closures to her extensive personal wardrobe of snow gear. The oversized hood that has become one of her signatures is needed to cover up her helmet, she explains. “My brother, me and my younger sister used to have these big red helmets that were like a clown’s red nose on our head. I hated it so I decorated it, and I’ve been covering up my helmets ever since.” (However, She notes that she always wears a helmet as a safety precaution, even when she’s doing recreational boarding.) Another must for her is good gloves with a strong grip. She’ll fill them with heat packs on cold days. Layering is the key to keeping the rest of her body warm, she says. “You can tell where I am in the world based on how many layers I have or don’t have on.” GRETCHEN BLEILER, SNOWBOARDER: Putting together her collection for Oakley could be a full-time job, Bleiler says. “I work on every single phase of the collection — materials, colors, fabrics, trims, style, fit, graphics, inside patterns. I come up with the ideas and the designers tell me if it’s realistic.” She says her motto for fashion

again. Bleiler says she hopes more fashion is in her future. “I would like to add more lifestyle pieces, Tshirts, sweaters and I’d love to add denim.” SARAH BURKE, FREESKIER: When Burke is competing, she wears bright colors to stand out. When she’s on the slopes for pleasure, she’ll be in more subtle shades so she doesn’t attract attention. All of her outfits, though, have a lot of pockets. What’s inside? Sunscreen, snacks and her phone. Don’t look for zipper closures, though. “Zippers are hard to handle with gloves on. I like magnetic flaps in some spots,” Burke explains. “When you wear something so often, it’s the little things that are important.” As for silhouette and style, Burke scours glossy magazines trying to add a little bit more “fashion” to the outdoor gear that’s typically offered. She sometimes sews her own clothes but sketching isn’t one of her talents, she says. A test collection Burke designed for Roxy is being sold in Europe this season with the key pieces being a denim-style pant and motorcycle

When she’s in charge of the sketchpad, Bleiler likes to use graphics, with words like “Love” and “Gratitude” to provide visual

inspiration, and she puts a lot of emphasis on gathered necklines, which along with neck gators are what keep her warm. This season — with her second collection — Bleiler experimented with environmentally friendly products, as green causes are near and dear to her. The T-shirts are organic cotton and made with water-based dyes, and there is both a jacket and snowpant made of 100 percent recycled material. They are fully recyclable, too — just send the garments back to Oakley and the company will have them broken down so the materials can be used

jacket. Her line is planned to expand to the U.S. next year, but since Burke hasn’t yet had the satisfaction of seeing someone on the slopes other than herself in the gear, she says she’ll be asking friends to try them out so she can snap photos. Burke’s off-slope wardrobe is a lot of track pants, but there are dresses in her closet, too. “I do like to get dressed up,” she says. “I look forward to going out to a nice dinner or event that I get to wear a dress. A dress is actually an item of choice for me.” Still, Burke insists, comfort is a factor because that yields confidence, and that’s when you look your best. LINDSEY VONN, ALPINE SKIER: Each stop on the World Cup circuit this season has meant a new racing outfit for Vonn. She worked to keep each look under wraps until a competition as a little extra way of building buzz — as if the races weren’t enough. “It’s hard to show your personality when you’re in a race suit, so I coordinated with Spyder and came up with some really cool designs to show more of my character. Plaid is in right now, so that’s what I’ve been going with,” says Vonn.

Dining Delights

Lotawata Creek A lotta food for a little money By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Holy cow! That sums up my first experience at Lotawata Creek Southern Grill pretty well. The food is unique, made to order and HUGE portions. If you are on a portion control diet, (which I know that we all probably should be), this is not the place for you. If you are a person who likes to get their money’s worth, head to Lotawata. Located in Fairview Heights, at 311 Salem Place, in Fairview Heights, their motto is “We aren’t a chain restaurant. We cook every item to order.” From the selections on their expansive menu, they are not lying. The restaurant is owned by two brothers who have taken many of their family recipes and turned them into delectable masterpieces for their patrons to enjoy. They got the name of their establishment from a childhood memory of fishing with their father at a small creek off Lotawata Road in Oklahoma. To add to the name, they have decorated the interior in a hunting and fishing motif. As they claim, this location is the one and only. They do not take reservations, but I would suggest you arrive a little earlier in the day, as they are always busy. But don’t let the wait scare you! It is well worth it. They do allow you to call ahead to find out the wait time, but that can change in an instant, so be

January 14, 2010

forewarned. They can accommodate large parties, but suggest that you call ahead and speak to a manager for assistance if it is a group of 12 or more. They don’t accept personal checks, but cash, credit or traveler’s checks are welcome. Their hours are Sunday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Their huge menu has something for every taste or hankering. Whether it is barbecue, steak, hamburgers or pasta, you will find it. They slow smoke their barbecue selections with real hickory wood and baste them with their own original Lotawata BBQ Sauce. You can choose from a variety of sizes of their baby back or spare ribs. Maybe you are in the mood for a burger. This is the place to stop. Most of their burgers are 10 ounces. If you love spice, try the Firecracker Cheeseburger, topped with Pepper Jack cheese, barbecue sauce, Chipotle mayonnaise, and if that is spice enough, besides the lettuce, tomato and sliced red onion, you will get a helping of jalapeno’s on the side! The burgers all come with hand cut fries, and let me tell you, I mean you could make a meal on the huge helping of fries alone. Of course there are about seven more burger selections if spice isn’t your thing. If you love a mouth watering steak, wear your stretchy pants and come ready for some of the best. Maybe it will be their famous New Orleans Prime Rib, or a 12 ounce Cattleman’s Choice Strip Steak. Maybe you are a Porter House lover or a bacon wrapped Filet Mignon

kind of person. Whatever the choice, you are in for a great selection and a tough time choosing! Lotawata also has a section of their menu that is nothing but their original specialties. Italian Meatloaf Dinner is made from scratch with garlic parmesan sauteed mushrooms, Provel cheese and marinara sauce. Or maybe you would like to try the Chicken Chattanooga, a lightly breaded chicken breast grilled and topped with creamy pepper cheese and a white wine lemon butter sauce with mushrooms. There are many more, but I will let you discover them out on your visit. As if the main course items aren’t tasty enough, most of their entrees are served with a choice of two sides, which of course are more than ample side portions. Choose from corn on the cob, green beans, barbecue baked beans, broccoli, cole slaw, made-from-scratch mashed potatoes, red beans and rice, seasoned fries, southern cream spinach or, after 4 p.m., enjoy a baked potato. They have a good selection in their children’s menu that should please any picky eater. And if that isn’t enough, round out your food fest with one of their humongous desserts that are big enough to feed four people if you are willing to share. Let me suggest the Big Chocolate Nachos– cinnamon and sugar coated tortilla chips with homemade chocolate sauce, piled with vanilla ice cream, topped with whipped cream and drizzled with more chocolate sauce and carmel sauce. HUGE! If you would like to read more about Lotawata Creek Southern Grill or view more of their menu items, visit their Web site at www.lotawata. com.

Dining Delights Indian food curries favor with Americans NEW YORK (AP) — Indian food in America is having its “Slumdog Millionaire” moment. Supermarket shelves are lined with chutneys, pickles and sa u c e s a n d a l l m a n n e r o f boxed heat-and-serve Indian meals. The quality and number of Indian restaurants has soared, offering an alternative to cheap all-you-can-eat buffets. And a flurry of new cookbooks i s i n t ro d u c i n g h o m e c o o k s t o subtle regional differences in Indian cuisine shaped by climate, geography, religion and caste. In Chicago, Indian b u s i n e s s m a n Vi j a y P u n i a n i i s betting Indian food will be the next big thing. After studying the success of Chipotle, Puniani opened the first in what he says will be a chain of “fast-casual” Indian restaurants modeled after the popular Mexican eatery. Chutney Joe’s, which opened in downtown Chicago in February 2009, features the sleek, minimalist decor of Chipotle — warmed up with orange walls — and a similarly simple menu. For $5.99, diners choose one of four meat or four vegetarian entrees accompanied b y r i c e o r t h e t h i n f l a t b re a d naan. Condiments to spice up or cool down the dishes are free. Puniani says the IndianPakistani population of Chicago comprises just 15 percent to 20 percent of the store’s customers. “ We l o o k a t M a i n S t r e e t , America as our customer base,” he says, adding that menu items were adapted after focus groups revealed that many people in the U.S. c o n s i d e r I n d i a n f o o d t o o spicy and heavy. For instance, the popular dumplings known a s s a m o s a s a re b a k e d i n s t e a d o f d e e p - f r i e d , a n d c re a m a n d b u t t e r, t w o s t a p l e s o f I n d i a n cooking, have been banished from the menu. The growing awareness o f I n d i a n c u l t u re a n d c u i s i n e is due to the big influx of immigrants from South Asia since 1965, when national origin quotas favoring Europeans were abolished. Since then, the United States has witnessed a remarkable flowering of Indian talent, energy and drive as well as a seemingly insatiable appetite for all things Indian, including bhangra music, Bollywood films and yoga. Perhaps nothing expresses America’s fascination with that giant emerging economy more than the runaway success of the British film “Slumdog Millionaire,” a rags-to-riches tale based in the Mumbai slums that won eight Academy Awards in 2009. The growing Indian presence also comes at a time when the

January 14, 2010

popularity of cooking shows — including Bravo’s “Top Chef,” h o s t e d b y I n d i a n a c t re s s a n d model Padma Lakshmi — and a n i n c re a s e i n f o re i g n t r a v e l have made Americans more adventurous eaters. “The American palate is no longer bland,” says Andrew F. Smith, editor of the Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink of America, who predicts that Indian food will take off in the next decade the way sushi bars did in the 1980s and Thai food did in the ’90s. A September 2009 survey of ethnic food by the market re s e a rc h g ro u p M i n t e l f o u n d that the fastest growing segment was Indian food, with sales increasing nearly 3 5 p e rc e n t f rom 2006 to 2008. While Indian food’s overall share of the $2.2 billion ethnic food market still is tiny — $40 million in 2009 compared to $1.4 billion in Mexican/Hispanic foods — Mintel says the Asian (mostly Chinese) and Indian food segments are driving the growth. New York, the dining capital of the nation, has seen an explosion in the number of Indian restaurants in recent y e a r s . N e w Yo r k U n i v e r s i t y sociologist and food studies scholar Krishnendu Ray counts some 350 Indian restaurants today compared to the 19 listed in the 1978 edition of a restaurant guide. At the top of the market are a small group of stylish, cosmopolitan restaurants like Tamarind, Devi and Tabla, which received three stars from The New York Times soon after it opened. The glowing review — “It was love at first bite,” it reads — is a f a r c r y f ro m an 1876 article in the Times that judged curry to be “a good thing in its time a n d p l a c e ” but one that “still rather deserves the epithet of barbaric.” Fancy Indian food has made inroads in other cities too. R a g h a v a n I y e r, a u t h o r o f t h e well-received Indian cookbook “660 Curries,” recently helped l a u n c h t h e u p s c a l e re s t a u r a n t Om in Minneapolis, which features traditional Indian dishes like pork vindaloo a n d ro g h a n j o s h ( l a m b c u r r y )

interpreted for an American audience. While Iyer is amazed at how much more available Indian products have become since he emigrated here in 1982, he says America still has a ways to go in terms of really understanding Indian food. “People associate hot with s p i c y a n d t o m e t h e y ’ re t w o different things,” he says. “It’s a question of educating the American audience. If Thai food can be considered mainstream, I don’t think Indian cooking can be that far behind.” Part of the allure is the supposed health benefits of Indian food, especially spices like turmeric, ginger, cinnamon and cayenne. Research into the antioxidant and antiinflammatory properties of turmeric has landed it on lists of cancer-fighting foods in recent years. Priti Chitnis Gress, editorial director for the publisher Hippocrene Books, Inc., says the company’s line of Indian cookbooks do quite well, particularly the one titled “Healthy South Indian Cooking,” and sell largely to a non-Indian audience. “People, especially in metropolitan communities, are fairly sophisticated,” she says. “It’s not just chicken curry and rice and naan anymore.” Across the pond, Camellia P u n j a b i ’ s c o o k b o o k “ 5 0 G re a t Curries of India” has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. It was recently reissued in the United States with a DVD “to take the intimidation out of cooking Indian food,” says Anja Schmidt, the New York publisher of Kyle Books, a division of Londonbased Kyle Cathie Ltd. Not everyone believes that the South Indian crepes called dosas will become as ubiquitous as burritos. David Browne, a senior analyst at Mintel, says Indian f o o d w i l l re m a i n a n a c q u i re d taste because “the flavor profile is still a limiting factor.” Another skeptic is Chicagobased food writer Colleen Taylor Sen, author of “Curry: A Global History.” She notes that America doesn’t have the colonial ties to India that Britain does. “There are so many Chinese,

T h a i a n d M e x i c a n re s t a u r a n t s i n t h e U . S . t h a t p l a y t h e ro l e that Indian restaurants do in the U.K.,” she says. It might be too early to tell, a c c o rd i n g t o N Y U ’ s R a y, w h o notes that while Indians are among the fastest growing ethnic groups in this country, the population of 2.7 million is still a tiny presence in a nation of more than 300 million people. Also, the bulk of the Indian immigrant population simply hasn’t been here that long. Chicken marsala and focaccia may be household words today for tens of millions of Americans but Italians have been in the U.S. in large numbers since t h e l a t e 1 9 t h c e n t u r y, b e c o m e assimilated and moved up the social and economic ladder. Whether ground fenugreek and coriander become flavors as familiar to Americans as basil and oregano depends in large part on whether Indians can do t h e s a m e t h i n g , a c c o rd i n g t o Ray. “In 2065, Indian may be in the same place as Italian food,” he says. ••• This thick, nutty curry from Camellia Punjabi’s cookbook “50 Great Curries of India” is made from ground spices and cashews. When grinding the spices and nuts, make certain you reduce everything to a fine paste, otherwise the curry will appear curdled. Serve this dish with rice seasoned with lemon zest.

1-by-1/2-inch piece fresh ginger, chopped 2 1/2 tablespoons coriander seeds 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin seeds 4 whole dried red chilies 6 cloves 3-inch cinnamon stick 1 large yellow onion, chopped 1 cup cashew nuts 5 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil Salt, to taste 2 1/4-pound chicken, skin removed, cut into 8 pieces In a large, dry skillet over low, combine the coconut, garlic, ginger, coriander seeds, cumin s e e d s , re d c h i l i e s , c l o v e s a n d cinnamon. Toast for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the onion and a 1/4 cup of the cashews. Toast for another 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Turn off the heat and leave to cool. Once the mixture is cool, transfer it to a blender or food processor. Add 3/4 to 1 cup of water and process until finely ground. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl.

Increase heat to medium, then add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes. Add 2 cups of water, cover, reduce heat to low and cook for another 10 minutes. Add the remaining cashew nuts and continue to cook until the chicken is done, about another 5 minutes.

Television

Change brews on "American Idol" LOS ANGELES (AP) — “American Idol” was the colossus that dominated television in the new century’s first decade, generating top ratings, a heady share of buzz and a handful of bankable stars including Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson. “THIS is ‘American Idol,”’ host Ryan Seacrest first intoned in 2002, and the singing contest that was a summer surprise turned into an annual visitor with staying power. Whether it can retain its status this year, let alone through the second decade, is a crucial question for its home base, Fox, as well as the network’s competitors and the seemingly bottomless well of aspiring singers who see it as a shortcut to discovery. It’s a challenge for a series that, entering its ninth season, is undergoing its biggest shake-up yet with Ellen DeGeneres taking the place of Paula Abdul on the judging panel that includes Simon Cowell, Randy Jackson and, back for her sophomore turn, Kara DioGuardi. Can “Idol” hang on as the No. 1 series, a spot it’s held for five years among all viewers and for six years among 18-to-49 year olds, a demographic much favored by advertisers? Yes, said industry analyst Shari Anne Brill — for now. “It will remain the top-rated show through this year,” said Brill of Carat USA. After that, she said, it’s a guessing game, especially if uber-judge Cowell decides to exit after this season and “Idol” is deprived of his sharp bite (or at least loud bark). The show’s producers and Fox pay due respect to the judging panel but say what counts most are the “kids,” their favored term for the mostly 20-something contestants angling for a record contract and career, such as last year ’s winner Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert. In focus groups with viewers, it’s about contestants that provoke the most emotion, said Fox executive Preston Beckman, adding, “They want to root for someone and see someone win.” DeGeneres brings “something unique and will be the nurturing person on the show and create an interesting dynamic with Simon. But at the end of the day, it’s not on her shoulders to carry the show,” he said. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of series producer FremantleMedia North America and an “Idol” executive producer, said she’s nothing but bullish on the future. “Thank God it’s an event, like a sporting event, so it rises above

January 14, 2010

the crowd,” she said. Its ad rates are a cut above, too: A 30-second commercial on “Idol” cost around $500,000 last season and hit more than $600,000 for the finale, according to the ad-buying firm Initiative, while other top 10 shows were getting closer to about $250,000 for half-minute spots. A promising sign for “Idol” is the overall broadcast TV picture. After years of steadily losing viewers to cable and other distractions, including the Internet, three of the four major networks (Fox among them) showed an unexpected audience increase over 2008 at the start of the new season. To be sure, viewership for “American Idol” has been shrinking since its 2005 peak when it averaged 30 million weekly viewers, according to research chief Brad Adgate of Horizon Media. The median age of viewers has shot up, from nearly 32 years old in the first season to about 44 last year. In a bid for the youth vote, Fox promotions for “American Idol” are emphasizing a “more authentic feeling, raw and emotional,” Beckman said, countering any notion that it’s “lost its soul.” A guest judge such as Katy Perry represents the kind of artist who appeals to teenagers and young adults, he said. Perry, Victoria Beckham and other celebrities filled in for the departed Abdul for filming of the cross-country auditions that kick off the season. Younger viewers are especially taken with performers such as Lambert and fellow finalist Allison Iraheta who have “a bit more edge to them,” Beckman said, so that was a focus of the contestant search. This year ’s auditions proved rewarding, Frot-Coutaz said. “We have good kids and also some kids who come to the show with real stories, who have that kind of emotional core you need to be a great performer,” she said, including some with difficult lives who see the show as a “lifesaver.” Viewers may find it easier to connect with the contestants, or at least identify them. After last season’s approach in the semifinals allowed for long stretches in which some singers were off camera, the show is returning to a boy-girl division that has all contestants sing each week and face elimination until the field is pared to 12 finalists. A concerted effort has also been made to prevent the show

running long, Beckman said; last year, a number of DVR users missed a Lambert performance

when an episode went into overtime. Still, Beckman offers a friendly

tip: Extend the recording time on your recorder for “American Idol,” to be safe.
