Hope for the best and prepare for the worst Know what to do when severe weather approaches By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge

W

e were in the middle of our usual evening routine. My husband was helping our preschooler brush her teeth for bed while I was busy clearing the table from dinner. Our infant son was in bed and sleeping soundly.

That’s when we heard the earpiercing wail of the tornado siren blaring outside. Suddenly, we stopped everything. My husband hurried our daughter downstairs. I woke up the baby and carried him bleary-eyed to the basement. The only problem was that we were totally unprepared. Storage tubs and boxes full of stuff were jumbled all over the place. The old couch – our only place to sit – was piled with boxes of papers, photo

Below, a funnel cloud spirals down from the sky. albums and old toys. Nothing was ready should we need to spend several hours down there. Heck, we didn’t even have a first aid kit in the house. I heard the weatherman on television say we were under a tornado warning. The worst of the storm was just seven minutes away from where we lived and moving fast. I raced around like a mad woman making trips up and down the stairs with blankets, bottles of water, snacks, diapers, extra clothes, socks and shoes (I didn’t want us greeting possible disaster in bare feet) and important documents like birth certificates and passports. My husband was busy in the basement clearing off the couch and getting our children comfortable. Fortunately, they weren’t fazed by any of this. Our daughter was thrilled to be reunited with all of her old toys while our son sat happily in his stroller. About 30 minutes later it was all over. The worst of the storm missed us and all we got was a severe thunderstorm. No tornado – this time. We were fine but the experience made me realize how important it is to be prepared for severe weather or any other type of emergency for that matter. Less than two years after an EF-5 tornado ripped through Joplin, Mo., the images of that destruction are still vivid in my mind. Then and there I made a decision not to be caught so unprepared again. The next day my husband and I made arrangements to safely and securely store our most important documents. I picked up a few extra canned goods during my next trip to the grocery store to begin storing up food. We also set a date to clear out the basement and make room for emergency items that we can locate quickly and

easily should we need them. These are just a few small changes that we’ve started to make. There are plenty more things that we can do to ensure we’re prepared should the worst happen. Unfortunately, the arrival of spring also brings with it severe weather and the potential for tornados. Don’t let severe weather catch you unprepared like it did us. Take a look at these tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help get your family and your home prepared for a tornado or other emergency. That way, when the siren sounds, you’ll be ready. Tips for Preparing for a Tornado • Know the difference between a “tornado watch” and a “tornado warning” A tornado watch is issued when weather conditions favor the formation of tornadoes, for example, during a severe thunderstorm. Watch the weather and be prepared to take shelter immediately if conditions worsen. A tornado warning is issued when a tornado funnel is sighted or indicated by weather radar. You should take shelter immediately. • Assemble an emergency kit in advance. This includes: Water (one gallon per person, per day for at least three days), Non­perishable and easy ­to ­prepare food items for at least three days, Flashlight, Battery-­powered or hand­crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible), Extra batteries, First aid kit, Medications (seven ­day supply) and medical supplies like hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes and cane, Multi­purpose tool, Sanitation and personal hygiene items, Copies of personal documents

April 25, 2013

(medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates, insurance policies), Cell phone with chargers, Family and emergency contact information, Extra cash, Emergency blanket, Map(s) of the area, Baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers), Games and activities for children, Pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, bowl), Two-­way radios, Extra set of car keys and house keys, Manual can opener, Whistle, N95 or surgical masks, Matches, Rain gear, Towels, Work gloves, Tools/supplies for securing your home, Extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes, Plastic sheeting, Duct tape, Scissors, Household liquid bleach, Entertainment items, Blankets or sleeping bags • Pack the items in easy-to-carry containers, label the containers clearly and store them where they would be easily accessible. Duffle bags, backpacks, and covered trash receptacles are good candidates for containers. In a disaster situation, you may need access to your disaster supplies kit quickly - whether you are sheltering at home or evacuating. Following a disaster, having the right supplies can help your household endure home confinement or evacuation.

People People planner Peabody to host Legends of the Ring The Legends of the Ring, an evening of live, on-stage entertainment featuring alltime boxing greats Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns and Robert Durán, will begin a three city tour starting June 21st at the Midland Theater in Kansas City. The show, which will consist of a sit-down conversation between these pugilistic kings, will be produced by Tate Entertainment/ Icon Concerts and moderated by Brian Kilmeade of Fox News. The performance will also include archived video footage of some of their spectacular battles, short-form original content and questions from the audience.  Show time on June 22 is 8 p.m. at the Peabody Opera House in downtown St. Louis.  Ticket Prices are $350, $95, $75 & $55 plus a facility fee.  Tickets available at the Ford Box Office at Scottrade Center, all Ticketmaster ticket centers, www.ticketmaster.com or by phone at 1-800-745-3000.  In 1979 Sugar Ray Leonard d e f e a t e d Wi l f re d o B e n i t e z t o w i n t h e W B C We l t e r w e i g h t Championship and was declared “ F i g h t e r o f t h e Ye a r ” b y t h e Boxing Writers Association of America and Ring Magazine.  Va c a t i n g t h e L i g h t w e i g h t title in 1980 for an attempt at the Welterweight title, Roberto Durán earned a pair of wins against former WBC Welterweight Champion Carlos Palamino and Zeferino Gonzalez setting the stage for a title bout against then undefeated WBC Welterweight

Champion, Sugar Ray Leonard. The venue chosen was the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, the same location where Leonard won an Olympic gold medal during the 1976 Summer Olympics. Durán resented that he was getting only o n e - f i f t h t h e m o n e y L e o n a rd would make despite the fact that he was entering the bout with an incredible 71-1 record. On June 20, 1980, Durán captured the title by defeating Leonard via a 15-round unanimous decision. The fight became known as "The Brawl in Montreal." In their infamous November re m a t c h , D u r á n u n e x p e c t e d l y quit. Leonard has said that his strategy was to use speed and agility to taunt and frustrate Durán, believing it was his best chance of winning the fight. In the seventh round, Leonard started to taunt Durán. His most memorable punch came late in the round. Winding up with his right hand, as if to throw a bolo punch, Leonard hit Durán flush in the face with a left. In

the eighth round, Durán, slightly behind on all three scorecards, shortly after a vicious rightuppercut from Leonard, turned around, walked to his corner and gave up, supposedly saying the now famous words, "No más" (no more). However, he claims to have actually said, "No quiero pelear con el payaso." (Meaning, "I do not want to fight with this clown.") Another version of events has him saying, in Spanish, "I can't continue." Referee Octavio Meyran, perhaps as incredulous as was the rest of the world at what he was seeing, asked Durán if he was sure, and Durán then said, "No más, no más" (no more, no more). In violation of what any professional fighter does on the day of a fight, Durán gorged himself after the weigh-in and claimed he quit because he was having stomach cramps. However, Durán's manager, Carlos Eleta, said, "Durán didn't quit because of stomach cramps. He quit because he was embarrassed. I know this." Promoted as "The Showdown,”

banked a combined 17 million dollars for the fight, making it the largest purse in sports history. The following year, Leonard retired due to a detached retina caused by a Hearns jab and there would be no rematch until 1989. N o w, f o r t h e f i r s t t i m e , audiences will be able see up-close and personal, these Hall of Fame w a r r i o r s re m i n i s c e a n d s h a re their behind-the-scenes stories. Just to give some perspective, the combined records of these three Hall of Famers is 200 wins, only 24 loses and an astounding 143 knockouts. According to Sugar Ray, “I can’t wait to get together with these guys again and relive our spectacular fights and confrontations. We still have some unfinished business!” After Kansas City, the trio will appear at the Peabody Opera House, St. Louis, MO, Saturday June 22nd  and the The Murant, Indianapolis, IN, Sunday June 23rd.

Sugar Ray Leonard fought WBA Welterweight Champion, Thomas Hearns on September 16, 1981 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to unify the World Welterweight Championship. In this legendary fight, Hearns suffered his first professional defeat when Leonard stopped him in the 14th round. I n t h e 1 3 t h ro u n d , L e o n a rd , behind on points on all 3 judge’s scorecards, needed a knockout to win. He came on strong and put Hearns through the ropes at the end of the round. Hearns was dazed, totally out of gas and received a count but was saved by the bell. Leonard, with his left eye shut and time running out, resumed his attack in the 14th. Hearns started the round boxing and moving, but after staggering him with an overhand right, Leonard pinned Hearns against the ropes. After another combination to the body and head, referee Davey Pearl stopped the fight. Hearns and Leonard

People People planner Zoo announces summer programs From the ever-popular Camp KangaZoo to individual programs for all ages, the Saint Louis Zoo Education Department has classes, overnight experiences and daytime adventures for everyone in the family. Camp KangaZoo campers can choose to attend one or two weeklong day camps— "Animal Clues and Codes” and “Animals in Action.” Kids will play games, meet animals, enjoy sing-alongs, perform skits and more. On Thursday nights, they’ll sleep at the Zoo and wake up with the birds! Teen Camp is also available for kids entering grades 7-9 and for Teen Camp II for campers who have attended Teen Camp in previous summers and are entering 8th – 10th grade. Younger children can hop "out of the pouch" and into the Zoo at Camp Joey. Children who are at least 4 years old and entering kindergarten can participate in a daily morning or full day session with active games, crafts, stories and songs, live animal contact opportunities and visits to Zoo exhibits and attractions. Family education programs include Animal Alphabets, Wake Up With the Rays, evening Keeper Safaris, and Wild Nights family overnights. Zoo programs for young children and youth keep growing minds sharp in the lazy summer months. The Zoo offers a variety of animal topics for multiples ages. Kids can learn about birds, mammals and reptiles, see stingrays up close, examine dinosaur fossils, create animal habitats, sing animal songs, identify animal tracks, touch biofacts, tour the Zoo and meet the animals. Scouts can learn about animals and sleep

under the stars while working toward fulfilling their badge requirements at the Snooze at the Zoo programs. Scout overnight programs are for Girl Scout Brownies, Girl Scout Juniors, Cub Scouts, and Webelos. Adult programs include evening tours, dinners and presentations. Teachers can gain valuable professional development and college credit this summer by enrolling in the Zoo’s teacher workshops. Program fees vary. All proceeds support the Saint Louis Zoo. Camp KangaZoo scholarships are available for families with financial need. For more information, registration and Camp scholarship applications, visit www.stlzoo.org/ education or call (314) 646-4544.

Caribbean Cove opens for the season Hey, mon, the ocean is coming to the mid coast! Stingrays at Caribbean Cove featuring Sharks opened at the Saint Louis Zoo on April 19 and runs through September 29, 2013. Cownose rays and southern stingrays, horseshoe crabs, bonnethead and whitespotted bamboo sharks glide through a 17,000gallon warm saltwater pool located under a large tropical-themed pavilion. Guests are encouraged to dip their hands into the water and allow the animals to touch them. Occasionally, there will be an opportunity to feed the stingrays. These are hardy species that interact well with people in a safe and fun manner. “We’re pleased to bring sharks and stingrays back to our visitors this year,” said Dr. Jeffrey P. Bonner, Dana Brown president & CEO of the Saint Louis Zoo. “Connecting people with

wildlife is an important part of our mission. Not everyone in our part of the world has had the chance to get in touch with ocean life in such a close-up, intimate way.” The bonnethead shark is the smallest member of the hammerhead family. They have semi-circular heads resembling a shovel or bonnet. White-spotted bamboo sharks are known as “cat sharks” because the barbels, or sensory organs, near their mouths resemble cat whiskers. The sharks at Stingrays at Caribbean Cove are small, shy and docile fish and pose no danger to humans. They range from two-anda-half to four feet in length and are bottomdwelling species that prey on small fish, crabs and invertebrates. Visitors will not be feeding the sharks, but occasionally they may have an opportunity to be touched briefly by a shark as it swims by. Cownose rays and southern stingrays are related to sharks. They have a flat body, long pointed fins and long whip-like tails that can be used for defense against predators. At Stingrays at Caribbean Cove, their stingers or barbs are painlessly clipped back just as human fingernails are clipped. Staff at the exhibit will monitor the stingrays throughout the season to ensure that the barbs stay neatly trimmed. Along for the swim are horseshoe crabs, which are more closely related to spiders and scorpions than to true crabs. The horseshoe crab is a living fossil. It has been on the earth for 220 million years, longer than dinosaurs, and it survives today almost identical to its ancient ancestors. The 20-inch deep pool includes a waterfall and a state-of-the-art life support system. The

pool also has solitary space and places for the animals to rest if they choose. Zoo interpreters and educators will be on hand to help visitors and to share information about the animals, sustainable seafood and ocean conservation. Tropical Traders Gift Shop will offer a variety of ocean-related souvenirs, including plush stingrays and other sea life items, shark merchandise, T-shirts, tropical attire, nautical gifts and more. Ray’s Grill will serve up fish and chips, fajitas, island burgers and more. Margaritas, piña coladas, daiquiris and beer (with or without alcohol) will also be available. The Zoo’s Education Department is planning several programs for children and adults throughout the summer. Some programs include A Day With the Rays, Wake Up With the Rays, Family and Scout Overnights, Camp KangaZoo and more. To register for programs, visit www.stlzoo.org/education or call (314) 646-4544. Admission to Stingrays at Caribbean Cove is $4 per person. Zoo Friends members at the Family Level and above may use their Anywhere Plus passes for admission. Children under 2 are free. Purchase a one-day Safari Pass for $10 and receive free admission to Stingrays at Caribbean Cove and other attractions. Admission is free the first hour the Zoo is open. Stingray feedings are $1.00 per cup. Groups of 15 or more may call (314) 6464718 in advance for group discounts. Stingrays at Caribbean Cove will be open April 19 through September 29, 2013, during Zoo hours. The Zoo’s spring hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through May 23.

Music

For The Edge

Exit 12 band members Zach Galbierz, Brenden Heaton, Jack Desse, Hannah Andres, Michael Romann and Randy Romann.

Exit 12 chasing its dream By LAURA SCATURRO For The Edge In less than five years, Exit 12, a local alternative band, has grown from a group of five boys under the age of 13 to a seasoned six-member group of musicians with a large and loyal following. The group took part in the final round in their quest to play on the Pop’s Locals Band Pointfest stage in May. The band from Edwardsville advanced to the finals competition after a blow-out performance at the preliminary competition held at Pop’s Nightclub and Concert Venue on Feb. 17. Exit 12 band members are: Jack Desse (vocals); Randy Romann (guitar); Zach Galbierz (guitar); Michael Romann (bass guitar and vocals); Brenden Heaton (drums and vocals) and Hannah Andres (vocals). Randy Romann said that the audience response is what helped the band nail the performance and make it fun. “We were going up against five bands and a lot of them were really good,” Randy said. “We were sitting there listening and there were a couple older bands and they were seasoned veterans. They had been there before and they all knew what to do and were at home. It was intimidating. The audience was really getting into them and we found that we were, too. We were thinking - this is what we need to compete against?” Exit 12 performed six songs that evening – five of them originals. The band is managed by John Romann, father of two of the band members. “Performing original songs at a competition shows that your work is popular with the audience,” said Romann. “If you stick with cover songs you’re playing it safe. Judges expect you do to original songs.” The band also staged an original and memorable opening to their performance at the competition. As the band members took the darkened stage, the prerecorded song, "Thrift Shop," was playing in the background. Once the members were in place, the lights came on and the band opened with their first song. The audience went wild.

“It was amazing,” said Michael Romann, bass guitarist. “We knew we were hitting it pretty good, but we didn’t know we won. When you’re on the stage the crowd is going wild and singing along, you get into it more and you play better and everything just clicks.” R o m a n n ’ s w i f e , H o l l y, w h o h a n d l e s t h e b a n d ’ s merchandising said, “I noticed they were really on that night. They were having a blast and they were really trying to entertain the crowd, pumping them up. Randy is one of the more dramatic band members and he was having a blast. Hannah and Jack were interacting with each other. Every one of the band members were connecting with the crowd. It was a magical performance.” The band learned of their preliminary round win around 2 p.m. the next day through a posting on the Point’s Facebook page, 1057thepoint, and through an email. If the band is selected for a Pointfest performance at the finals competition on April 20, they will not only be on the Local Band stage at Pointfest, but will earn recording studio time, and perhaps an invitation to another band competition, which could lead to opening for a top performer on the main stage at Pointfest. Winning time in a recording studio would be ideal for the band that is ready to create their first CD. Manager Romann said, “We want to get a CD out this year and that’s our goal – to start working on the originals side and produce a CD. No matter what, the CD will be out this year. We have quite a few songs and they sound really good.” “I would like the band to go as far as we can,” Randy said. “For me, I just want to have fun with it. Right now, I’m enjoying everything we’re doing. I’m not too concerned about making it big. Making it big is the dream, but we want to have fun along the way. For the next competition we need to work on each person really individualizing themselves and creating an image.” Band members are currently selling tickets to the April 20 show. Of the seven musical groups competing, the group selling the most tickets to the show will earn preferential performance

time the night of the finals as well as the chance to have one of their songs played on the radio. In 2008, the band took the stage for the first time ever at the Route 66 Festival’s talent show under the name The Thirteenth Hour. They played three songs and received their first paid gig minutes after their performance. Romann said, “One of the guys working at booth there offered us a deal to play at their store’s grand opening.” Randy said, “We had to learn 10 songs. It was a big challenge – that was so many. We practiced a song for two weeks and be half way there.” Suddenly the band needed an official manager and John Romann stepped up as the band’s popularity took off. “I approached SIUE one year for the Battle of the Bands competition,” he recalled. “They would have had to perform all original songs and they didn’t have but one original at the time. So, I left a CD with them. They called me back and said, ‘We listened to the CD and we’d like to hire those kids to play at our block party.’ They opened that year for the Brat Pack.” The band also went through a name change after an internet investigation showed that there were a lot of bands working under the name The Thirteenth Hour. Several names were thrown around, but the name Exit 12, submitted by Brenden Heaton’s father, seemed to stick once they learned that Exit 12 was the exit number on Interstates 270 and 55 that lead into Edwardsville. In 2010, the all boy band added a sixth member – Hannah Andres. The addition of Andres has opened up a myriad of songs that the band can now perform. The band performs more than 100 songs now at over 30 shows a year which can be quite a challenge for John Romann who handles the bookings. “Balancing the six kids that are each participating in different activities is tough,” he said. "Getting practices in are tough. They’re getting jobs, playing varsity sports and performing in the theater.” The final round of competition was April 20 at Pop’s Nightclub and Concert Venue.

The Arts Foundry to host photography exhibit that focuses on unique couple By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Our photographs tell the story of our lives. Where we’ve been, who we love and what we like to do. But what happens when we’re gone? Will anyone remember who we were and what we did? Or will the story of our life end up in a box in a second-hand store dusty and forgotten? “Lost and Found: The Search for Harry and Edna” is a photography exhibition opening May 17 at the Foundry Art Centre. The exhibition runs through June 21. “Lost and Found” is the story of Harry and Edna, an ordinary couple who lived an extraordinary life. They frequented fancy parties. They traveled the world. And they captured it all on film. More than 50 years later, Chicagobased photographer Jeff Phillips was intrigued by the photo of a lady from the 1950s. He found it among the 1,000 photographs he discovered in boxes of unlabeled Kodachrome slides in a second-hand shop in suburban St. Louis. The photographs tell the story of an anonymous couple's past. “I opened one of the boxes, removed a single slide from the tray, and held it up to the ceiling light. What I saw was astounding: a portrait of a woman in a bright pink dress, standing in front of a field of trees, perfectly centered in the frame. The next slide was almost identical, except the woman was wearing a yellow dress. Then, a blue dress,” stated Phillips on his website at www.harryandedna.com. Phillips, an artist who has always been fascinated by found photographs, bought all the boxes. As he did, he wondered why these enigmatic family portraits had been abandoned. Phillips looked through the hundreds of photos and knew he had to try and find out just who this couple was. There they were at a holiday party, on a Hawaiian cruise, posing on an iceberg in Alaska. Others showed the couple sightseeing in Venice and other European locations.

The more images Phillips shared, the more intent he became on finding the people in the pictures. He created a page on Facebook that featured images of the woman and asked, "Is This Your Mother?" Phillips wondered, could the social media community help restore their identities, or would they be lost forever? Little did he know that his quest to identify them would capture the interest and hearts of people around the world. Suddenly Phillips began receiving “likes” and messages on the page from people just as curious about Harry and Edna as he was. The search was on. A small, dedicated group of people began helping Phillips in his quest. “Lost and Found: The Search for Harry and Edna” exhibition continues the collective story about the social media search for the identities and the St. Louis family of Harry and Edna. This unique photography show explores the intersection of photography, social media, and our places in history. The exhibition is free and open to the public. There will be an opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. on May 17 at the Foundry Art Center in St. Charles, Mo. The reception is free and open to the public. Complimentary refreshments will be served. The Foundry Art Centre artists will also be in studio during the reception. In the meantime, the public can visit Harry and Edna and relive the social media search process firsthand on Facebook at facebook.com/ IsThisYourMother or on the web at harryandedna.com. The Foundry Art Centre is a fine arts gallery overlooking the Missouri River at 520 N. Main Center, in the Frenchtown district of Historic St. Charles. Hours are: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday and Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday.  Admission is free, and donations are welcome.  For more information, call (636) 255-0270 or visit www. foundryartcentre.org.

Shakespeare Festival St. Louis opens May 24 in Forest Park Kimiye Corwin and Anderson Matthews will headline Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' production of "Twelfth Night" May 24 through June 16 at Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park. Both Corwin and Matthews were last seen in SFSTL's production of "Hamlet" as Ophelia and Polonius, respectively, in 2010. Preview performances are scheduled for May 22-23. Rick Dildine, executive director of Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, will direct. Corwin, who was nominated for a Kevin Kline Award for her role in "Hamlet," has performed in numerous Off-Broadway and regional productions. She was a member of the Jose Limon Dance Company for five years and received her BFA in Dance from The Juilliard School and her MFA in Acting from Brown/ Trinity. Corwin currently lives in Brooklyn. Anderson has appeared in 26 Repertory Theatre of St. Louis productions. His Broadway credits include "The Robber Bridegroom" and Peter Ustinov's "Beethoven's 10th." He has appeared in film and on TV ("The Equalizer," and "Law and Order"). "The talent the Festival is able to attract continues to overwhelm me," said Rick Dildine, executive director of Shakespeare Festival St. Louis. "Each year I am more and more impressed by the caliber of performers in St. Louis, Chicago and New York that want to be a part of our annual free production in Forest Park. Two years ago, both Corwin

and Matthews gave impressive performances as Ophelia and Polonius, respectively, and this year we get to see their comedic skills at work as they take on Viola and Malvolio." "Twelfth Night," considered one of the Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, honors the historical holiday tradition which closes out the Christmas season in which servants and masters switch roles for one night of raucous fun. It's the only play of Shakespeare's that literally begins and ends with music. The first line of the play is "if music be the food of love, play on" and the final moment is the Fool's parting song. In between there are numerous songs, all of which will be played on instruments by the actors performing on stage, another first for the Festival. In the past, all music featured in the Festival productions has been pre-recorded. In another first under his tenure, Dildine announced he will be directing the production. Under his watch, the Festival has produced "Hamlet," "Taming of the Shrew" and "Othello," each one drawing record attendance crowds, and garnering nine Kevin Kline Awards nominations, four of them wins, including Best Play ("Hamlet"). Dildine will be joined by a creative team whose members are St. Louis-based and include Dottie Marshall Englis (Costumes), Scott Neale (Scenic Designer), John Wylie (Lighting Designer) and Rusty Wandall (Sound Designer). Music for the show

is being composed by The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra," a group known for composing and recording soundtrack music for local short and vintage films. In addition to Corwin and Matthews, other cast members include Charlie Thurston (Orsino), Leslie Ann Handelman (Olivia), Vichet Chum (Sebastian), Eric Hoffmann (Sir Toby Belch), Haas Regen (Sir Andrew Aguceheek), Andy Paterson (Fool), and St. Louisans Candice Jeanine (Maria), Joshua Thomas (Antonio), Gary Glasgow (Fabian), Michael Fariss (Ensemble), Kyle Powell (Ensemble), Alex Shaw (Ensemble) and Pete Winfrey (Ensemble). Pre-performance backstage tours and 20-minute post-show talkbacks will continue this season. As in previous years, the pre-show Festival activities will include a nightly Green Show at 6:30 p.m. The pre-show will include a 20-minute adaptation of "Twelfth Night" which will introduce the characters and plot to children of all ages; musicians, dancers, singers, jugglers; and a craft table for kids. In the past 12 years, the Shakespeare Festival has attracted more than 550,000 people to the performances in Forest Park. The organization has reached an additional 250,000 students through its educational touring productions, school program, summer camps and community partnerships.

The Arts Fox announces 2013-14 Broadway series "Sister Act" and "Evita" among featured performances By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge

T

he Fabulous Fox Theatre’s spectacular 30th anniversary season is drawing to a close after wowing audiences with its line up of Broadway hits, including “The Book of Mormon,” “Les Miserables,” “War Horse,” and the recordbreaking “Wicked." Following up such an amazing season was never going to be easy but the folks at the Fox have put together a new season that guarantees the fabulous remains in Fabulous Fox Theatre. Season ticket holders, members of the press and other guests crowded around the big brass front doors of the Fox Theatre as they eagerly awaited entrance into the special season preview event on April 15. Everyone was buzzing with excitement about what new surprises the Fabulous Fox Theatre’s 2013-2014 U.S. Bank Broadway Series would contain. In fact, everyone was so eager that theater staff had to open the doors nine minutes early to accommodate the growing crowd of people. The new season will open with a revival of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tony Awardwinning musical “Evita,” which runs Oct. 8 through 20, 2013. Using her beauty and charisma, Eva Perón rose from the slums of Argentina to become the nation’s First Lady. She was adored by her people for championing the poor and became one of the most powerful women in the world. At the same time, her greed and outsized ambition combined with fragile health made her one of the most tragic. “Evita” tells Eva’s passionate and unforgettable true story, and features some of theater’s most beautiful songs, including “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” “Another Suitcase in Another Hall,” and “High Flying, Adored.” This new production is directed by Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage and is choreographed by Rob Ashford. It is being presented by Dance St. Louis. Next up is a feel-good musical comedy that the New York Post calls, “Ridiculously fun.” “Sister Act” opens Nov. 19 and runs through Dec. 1, 2013 and includes original music by eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken. Y’know, that guy who created all those Disney songs that your kids insist on singing over and over and over again? Yep, that guy. The musical production of “Sister Act” is produced by Whoopi Goldberg and stays true to the 1992 film’s story. Deloris Van Cartier is

The cops decide to hide her in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent. Everyone loves a holiday show and who better to celebrate the season of joy and giving than with Buddy the Elf? “Elf” tells the hilarious tale of Buddy, a young orphan child who mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported back to the North Pole. Unaware that he is human, Buddy’s enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father, discover the truth about his identity and help New Yorkers remember the true meaning of Christmas. Based on the 2003 film, “Elf” features songs by Tony Award nominees Matthew Sklar and Chad

Beguelin with a book by Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan and Bob Martin. “Elf” runs from Dec. 17 through 29, 2013. Get ready to rock when the season continues with a show that has played continuously on London’s West End for the past 11 years. Finally, “We Will Rock You” arrives on U.S. shores and will run from March 18 through 30. Based on the music of Queen, “We Will Rock You” features the legendary rock band’s greatest hits like “Another One Bites the Dust,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “We Are the Champions,” and of course, “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Head banging is optional. Party on! The arrival of spring brings with it a musical like no other. “Once” is the winner of eight 2012 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and features an impressive ensemble of actor/musicians who play their own

instruments on stage. The show tells the enchanting tale of a Dublin street musician who’s about to give up on his dream when a beautiful young woman takes a sudden interest in his haunting love songs. As the chemistry between them grows, his music soars to powerful new heights but their unlikely connection turns out to be deeper and more complex than your everyday romance. We were treated to a special performance by the St. Louis Irish Arts Ensemble, who provided a small taste of what this type of live musical show will be like. If you only see one show next season, make it this one. “Once” comes to the Fox Theatre April 8 through 20, 2014. The season concludes with a fitting finale. Belt out your favorite songs as you enjoy “The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber,” which

runs from April 29 through May 11, 2014. Andrew Lloyd Webber burst onto the Broadway scene 40 years ago and has continually enthralled audiences with his impressive list of musical blockbusters. “The Music of Andrew Lloyd Webber” includes songs and musical excerpts from “The Phantom of the Opera,” “CATS,” “Evita,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Aspects of Love,” and “Sunset Boulevard.” The show will also feature, for the first time, selections from “Love Never Dies,” the sequel to “The Phantom of the Opera.” U.S. Bank Broadway subscribers will also get the first chance to purchase tickets for seven special shows for the 2013-2014 season. These include “Chicago” Sept. 20 through 22, “Beauty and the Beast” Nov. 1 through 3, “A Christmas Carol” Dec. 5 through 8, “West Side Story” Jan. 3 through 5, “Mamma Mia!” Feb. 7 through 9, “Jersey Boys” Feb. 19 through March 2 and “The Wizard of Oz” May 13 through 18.

The Arts Artistic adventures Shakespeare Festival St. Louis opens May 24 in Forest Park Kimiye Corwin and Anderson Matthews will headline Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' production of "Twelfth Night" May 24 through June 16 at Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park. Both Corwin and Matthews were last seen in SFSTL's production of "Hamlet" as Ophelia and Polonius, respectively, in 2010. Preview performances are scheduled for May 22-23. Rick Dildine, executive director of Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, will direct. Corwin, who was nominated for a Kevin Kline Award for her role in "Hamlet," has performed in numerous Off-Broadway and regional productions. She was a member of the Jose Limon Dance Company for five years and received her BFA in Dance from The Juilliard School and her MFA in Acting from Brown/Trinity. Corwin currently lives in Brooklyn. Anderson has appeared in 26 Repertory Theatre of St. Louis productions. His Broadway c re d i t s i n c l u d e " T h e R o b b e r Bridegroom" and Peter Ustinov's "Beethoven's 10th." He has appeared in film and on TV ("The Equalizer," and "Law and Order"). "The talent the Festival is able to attract continues to overwhelm me," said Rick Dildine, executive director of Shakespeare Festival St. Louis. "Each year I am more and more impressed by the caliber of performers in St. Louis, Chicago and New York that want to be a part of our annual free production in Forest Park. Two years ago, both Corwin and Matthews gave impressive performances as Ophelia and Polonius, respectively, and this year we get to see their comedic skills at work as they take on Viola and Malvolio." "Twelfth Night," considered one of the Shakespeare's most beloved comedies, honors the historical holiday tradition which closes out the Christmas season in which servants and masters switch roles for one night of raucous fun. It's the only play of Shakespeare's that literally begins and ends with music. The first line of the play is "if music be the food of love, play on" and the final moment is the Fool's parting song. In between there are numerous songs, all of which will be played on instruments by the actors performing on stage, another first for the Festival. In the past, all music featured in the Festival productions has been pre-recorded. In another first under his tenure, Dildine announced he will be directing the production. Under his watch, the Festival has produced "Hamlet," "Taming of the Shrew" and "Othello," each one drawing record attendance crowds, and garnering nine Kevin Kline Awards nominations, four of them wins, including Best Play ("Hamlet"). Dildine will be joined by a creative team whose members are St. Louis-based and include Dottie Marshall Englis (Costumes), Scott Neale (Scenic Designer), John Wylie (Lighting Designer) and Rusty Wandall (Sound Designer). Music for the show is being composed by The Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra," a group known for composing and recording soundtrack music for local short and vintage films. In addition to Corwin and Matthews, other cast members include Charlie Thurston (Orsino), Leslie Ann Handelman (Olivia),

Vichet Chum (Sebastian), Eric Hoffmann (Sir Toby Belch), Haas Regen (Sir Andrew Aguceheek), Andy Paterson (Fool), and St. Louisans Candice Jeanine (Maria), Joshua Thomas (Antonio), Gary Glasgow (Fabian), Michael Fariss (Ensemble), Kyle Powell (Ensemble), Alex Shaw (Ensemble) and Pete Winfrey (Ensemble). Pre-performance backstage tours and 20-minute post-show talkbacks will continue this season. As in previous years, the pre-show Festival activities will include a nightly Green Show at 6:30 p.m. The pre-show will include a 20-minute adaptation of "Twelfth Night" which will introduce the characters and plot to children of all ages; musicians, dancers, singers, jugglers; and a craft table for kids. In the past 12 years, the Shakespeare Festival has attracted more than 550,000 people to the performances in Forest Park. The o rg a n i z a t i o n h a s re a c h e d a n additional 250,000 students through its educational touring productions, school program, summer camps and community partnerships.

Circus Flora soars to the moon In its 27th big top production, St. Louis’ own Circus Flora goes where no circus has gone before: to the moon. Powered by Ameren and inspired by Georges MĂŠliès’ groundbreaking 1902 film, A Trip to the Moon, Circus Flora's creative team captures the film’s imaginative spirit under the big top, May 30 through June 23, next to Powell Hall. Circus Flora’s A Trip to the Moon borrows this iconic piece of cinematic history and MĂŠliès’ artistic instruments to construct the visual styling, costuming and narrative elements for its 2013 production. An illusionist and magician by training, MĂŠliès is revered as the father of narrative cinema and a pioneer of special effects like stopmotion photography, dissolves, multiple exposures, and handpainted color. He was also in part the inspiration for the 2011 Academy Award-nominated film, Hugo. “I see a kindred spirit in MĂŠliès,â€? said David Balding, Circus Flora's artistic director and producer. “He knew how to transport his audience and suspend their belief of what was possible. And yet over time, our world has become so dominated by what we see on screens that our immediate response is disbelief. I like to think that we are channeling MĂŠliès’ aesthetic to show our audience what is possible in very real acts of physical daring.â€? A Trip to the Moon incorporates a world-class roster of performers and musicians into its reimagination of the film, including the beloved Johnny Peers & the Muttville Comix, star equestrian Lisa Dufresne, Carlos Svenson and his Magical Flying Goats, Yo-Yo the Narrator, the St. Louis Arches, and the Circus Flora

band led by Janine Del’Arte. Also taking center stage are “International Man of Mirthâ€? Rob Torres, Mad Scientist (and juggler) Kellin Quinn, and Andrew Adams and Helena Reynolds in an aerial performance that could only happen outside the bounds of Earth’s gravity. Also appearing are favorites The Flying Wallendas and The Flying Pages. This year, the Pages take to the sky in an all-female flying ensemble never before seen in St. Louis. “I find it fascinating and moving that MĂŠliès’ film came from a time that could barely imagine commercial aviation, let alone space travel,â€? Balding said. “To this day, the moon remains a symbol of the limitless possibilities of humanity – much like the sight of a woman on the flying trapeze or a man walking on the wire.â€? Tickets start at $10 and go on sale March 1; group tickets are available now. A Trip to the Moon opens May 30 with a peanut-free preview and runs through June 23. Show times are Tuesday through Thursday at 7 p.m.; Friday and Saturday at 1 and 7 p.m.; Sunday at 1 and 5:30

p.m.; and “Little Top Wednesday� at 10 a.m., a special one-hour show for smaller kids or the “kids at heart.� Call 314-289-4040 or visit www. circusflora.org for tickets and more information. Tickets are also available at the Circus Flora Box Office in the Centene Center for the Arts & Education, 3547 Olive St. Group discounts are now available for groups of 20 or more. Visit www. circusflora.org for more information. Founded in St. Louis in 1987, Circus Flora is a nonprofit p e r f o r m i n g a r t s o rg a n i z a t i o n dedicated to sharing the magic of classic, one-ring circus with audiences of all ages. Circus Flora raises its big top every summer in the arts district at Grand Center. In addition to its main season production, Circus Flora collaborates with a variety of organizations and businesses throughout the year, appearing at festivals, events, and community and school programs. Its year-round Clowns on Call program brings laughter and magic to thousands of patients and their families every year at two St. Louisarea children’s hospitals.

Religion Miami men build modern ark on 5-acre plot MIAMI (AP) — In the beginning, there was the great flood. Not the one in Genesis that cleansed the world of evil, but the rising waters that swamped the Gulf Coast during Hurricane Katrina. As survivors and aid workers coped with the death and devastation, animals struggled, too. They foraged for food and wandered in search of a home. Those images touched something deep inside Rodolfo Almira. He dreamed of creating a refuge for animals facing catastrophe. Then it came to him: "Wouldn't it be nice to do what Noah did?" And why not right here on the rugged western frontier of Miami-Dade? It could be a draw for tourists, a haven for God's creatures, a testament to his faith and a place for reflection and learning. So it came to pass that Almira and three other Hialeah men began building an ark just west of town, doing it from a biblical template, converting cubits — roughly the distance between the elbow and the tip of the middle finger — into modern measurements. It rises on a five-acre plot surrounded by lakes that got their start as rock quarries, a moonscape where work boots quickly get caked with dust kicked up by the trucks that constitute most of the local traffic. Six months into their quest, the lowest deck of the three-story wooden ark is nearly complete. Planks of wood jut out near the

bow and stern. Wooden beams crisscross overhead. A donated, life-size elephant statue stands sentry in front of the ark. Unlike, say, biblical times, you need permits and zoning approval to build such a thing. Code enforcement has dinged them with some violation notices. Almira and his friends remain undeterred, committed to finishing the 500-foot-long structure, dubbed "Hidden Ark." High on zeal and short on cash, they estimate it will cost $1.5 million to finish the ambitious project, which they say will include a museum, a shop and a small zoo with goats, pigs, chickens and other small animals, as well as stray dogs and cats. Almira, who makes his living installing natural stone in homes and businesses, first approached Reniel Aguila with the idea. Aguila, a truck driver, then pitched it to his friends Manuel Guerra and Osmar Oliva. Oliva, owner of a trucking company, didn't need much convincing before donating $300,000 to start putting hammer to nail. Despite no formal engineering training, Aguila drew up rough plans based on the instructions God gave to Noah in the Bible. The men tried to raise money through an Internet-based fundraising campaign, but that hasn't gone particularly well. Earlier this month, they'd snagged $644. The four have crossed paths over the years through their work, but were never especially close until the ark project gave

them common cause. Their families have been supportive. "They told me to follow my dream," Almira said. The story of Noah's Ark has gripped the imagination of many over the years. Former astronaut James Irwin, who once walked on the moon, made several expeditions to Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey hoping to find remains of the vessel, before leaving the search to others. A Dutch man finished his own life-size ark last summer after having a dream 20 years earlier in which the Netherlands was flooded by the North Sea. The ark currently serves as a Biblethemed museum. A Kentucky-based creationist group named Answers in Genesis has raised almost half of the estimated $24.5 million it will take to build an ark as the first phase of Ark Encounter, an attraction that would eventually feature a 510-foot long ark, a petting zoo and a replica of the Tower of Babel. Almira sees his ark as a place where people of all faiths could pray or meditate, a space where animals could interact with guests, and an after-school program. "It has nothing to do with any specific religion," he said. Aguila speaks fervently about the ark as a symbol of humankind's salvation. "It would be our dream to have the pope come to our inauguration," he said, standing in the shadow of Luyano, the elephant statue they named after a Havana neighborhood.

Movies

Associated Press

This film image released by LD Entertainment shows Colin Ford, left, and Jason Bateman in a scene from "Disconnect."

"Disconnect" an earnest cautionary tale By DAVID ROONEY The Hollywood Reporter LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s a given at multiplexes these days that despite switchoff-your-cell-phone announcements and the occasional grumbling protest, whatever ’s onscreen will have to compete with tiny pockets of light from audience members unable to stay off their handhelds. Watching those glow patches come and go during “Disconnect” reinforces the film’s position on how desensitized we’ve become to these technological intrusions. Not that Henry-Alex Rubin’s schematic multi-strand drama is at all shy about articulating its themes.

Directing his first narrative feature, documentary-maker Rubin (“Murderball”) has assembled a solid cast and weaves together the three interconnected stories of Andrew Stern’s original screenplay with elegance and efficiency. But this is a film that voices its warning about the hazards of a wired existence with solemn self-importance. It’s also quite late in the day to be pointing out that we’re so plugged into our devices we often fail to see or hear the people closest to us. That’s not to say “Disconnect” is without powerful scenes, and a thread about the heedless consequences of cyber pranks among kids on social network sites probably stands to reach more adolescents than non-fiction

treatments of bullying. Nina (Andrea Riseborough) is a TV news reporter investigating porn chat sites that recruit underage teens, many of them runaways. She establishes a connection online with Kyle (Max Thieriot), at first in private chats and then cam-to-cam. They eventually meet and she convinces him to participate in an exposi, promising to keep his identity concealed. But when the story is picked up by CNN, representing a huge professional coup for ambitious Nina, it lands on the FBI’s radar, placing her under pressure to betray her source. The network’s legal counsel is Rich Boyd (Jason Bateman), who has more urgent issues with his troubled 15-year-old son Ben (Jonah

Bobo). An aspiring musician and friendless high school loner, Ben is targeted for humiliation by skater buddies Jason (Colin Ford) and Frye (Aviad Bernstein), who invent a female handle and begin messaging him. They start by admiring his music and then take it sexual, sending a naked photo and requesting that he do the same. Jason’s father Mike (Frank Grillo) is a widowed former cop from the computer crimes unit, now working as a private investigator. Victims of credit card fraud, exMarine Derek (Alexander Skarsgard) and his wife Cindy (Paula Patton) hire Mike when the police prove unhelpful and the couple’s savings and assets are taken.

"Trance" a surprisingly good discovery By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge When I was flipping through the movie listings for this past weekend, I found a title that I didn't recognize. When I looked into it further, I found out that "Trance" was directed by Danny Boyle ("Trainspotting," "Slumdog Millionaire") and that it co-starred his former girlfriend (?!), actress Rosario Dawson. So what was this Trance? And how was I unaware of its existence? I can now almost answer these questions, but the exact nature of the movie is rather shocking, convoluted, and packs in far more than anyone would expect. I think I liked it, which is fairly complimentary thing to say for a movie that needs a roadmap to understand. Try to

20

follow while I navigate. Trance is a very stylized heist movie that relies on a series of gimmicks, flashbacks, and clever editing to keep its viewers constantly in a state of disbelief and confusion over whether or not what they are watching is real or imagined. That run-on sentence is pretty polarizing, because you can compare it to films like "Inside Man" (a great heist movie) or "Inception" (a great head-trip movie). When you do so, however, you realize that maybe the two types of genres are too alike to combine. An auction house art historian named Simon Newton (James McAvoy) is soon revealed to be the "inside man" in a smash-andgrab robbery of a Goya masterpiece while on the block before some really rich Londoners. We're told

On the Edge of the Weekend

this by the other members of his criminal tribe, like ringleader Franck (Vincent Cassel), because Simon isn't initially convinced. During the robbery, he was bludgeoned a little too realistically and suffered a traumatic brain injury that leads him into a nasty bout of amnesia. I know, I know. At this point you're expecting that the amnesia is going to be a lame attempt at a doublecross, but it's much more bizarre than all that. Enter Elizabeth Lamb (Dawson), a beguiling hypnotherapist that Franck and Simon find by referral to help him jog his memory. She uses her training most days to help gamblers and overeaters, but is quickly immersed into a world of crime when she spots that Simon is being cagey and suspicious

April 25, 2013

during their sessions. His stated goal of finding his missing "keys" doesn't ring true with the multimillion dollar piece of artwork we know he means. The level to which Dr. Lamb sinks into this immoral abyss is about the most shocking part of this movie - something I say not lightly because the show also features a badly decomposed body, a thug shot in his nether regions, and an exchange of dialogue between an unwell criminal and a nearlyheadless gunshot victim. Even the leading lady is shown in full frontal nudity that, for one of the rare times I can admit this, actually has a bearing on the story, once revealed. Believe it or not, all of this takes place before an even more violent climax in the final moments. "Trance" is a creative work that

is the type of movie that would benefit from a second viewing. As Dr. Lamb works with uncovering hidden memories behind the scarred wound of Simon's memory, we find that each has ulterior motives, of course. For instance, when we see her becoming intimately involved with both leading fellas, we wonder if she is playing both sides against the middle or if it's just another fictional hallucination in the fragile brain of star. I don't know that poor Simon even figures this part out for himself. "Trance" runs 113 minutes and is rated R for sexual content, graphic nudity, violence, some grisly images, and language. I give this film two and a half stars out of four.


Dining Delights A gorgeous outdoor experience in St. Charles By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge

C

hoosing a place to eat lunch in Historic St. Charles is like trying to pick out your favorite chocolate from a box of truffles. You know they are all going to be good. It is just a matter of deciding what you are in the mood for. A good choice to have, I’d say. And so we found ourselves on a gorgeous and sunny spring day walking up St. Charles’ brick-paved Main Street looking for a place to eat lunch. We had our kids with us this time so we wanted a place that offered plenty of space. Our first choice was somewhere with outdoor seating since it was such a beautiful day. That’s when we came upon Garden Café Ala Fleur. This charming café had several outdoor tables set up on a shaded patio. It was surrounded by a white picket fence, and cheerful yellow and white daffodils sprang up all around adding to the happy spring vibe. Perfect. We were seated at a large table toward the back corner of the patio, which gave us more than enough elbow (and stroller) room. Our friendly server gave us the day’s specials and made sure to let us know what was included in the kid’s meal. The menu offered the usual array of soups, salads and sandwiches plus heartier items like Panini’s and burgers. I seriously considered the Cuban Panini, which includes roasted pork loin, ham, Provolone cheese, dill pickles and Dijon mustard on a grilled French baguette for $8.95. When we arrived I could smell something spicy coming from the barbecue grill in the back and thought this might be it. However, I wasn’t quite that hungry and opted for the Chicken

Pete MIdgley/The Edge

The exterior of Garden Cafe Ala Fleur. Below, a chicken salad sandwich. Salad Sandwich made with grilled chicken breast, grapes, walnuts and celery in a creamy mayo dressing with salad greens served on a croissant for $7.95. This dish came with one side so I chose the café’s homemade slaw. Chicken and tuna salad sandwiches can be hit or miss with restaurants. Often they are so loaded up with mayo that the flavor is totally drowned out, and the whole sandwich becomes a soggy mess. That was definitely not the case here. My sandwich was filled with

plenty of big chunks of chicken and just enough mayo to hold everything together without overpowering the other ingredients. The celery and walnuts provided a crunchy texture while the grapes added a juicy hit of sweetness in each bite. My croissant was fresh and without any hint of sogginess. Coleslaw is another item that can often turn out disappointing if not done right. Most people fall into two camps with slaw: those who like it creamy with lots of mayo and those who prefer it with just vinegar. I fall into the second camp on this one. I

like my slaw with a bit a twang to it rather than smothered in mayo. This slaw was a nice mix of the two. It was creamy but with enough vinegar in it to give it some bite. A dash of pepper made it the perfect accompaniment to my sandwich. My husband decided to go with something a bit meatier. He chose the Made to Order Burger for $6.95. This includes a plain ground chuck burger (he went with the quarterpound) plus choice of cheese (he chose Provolone), two slices of bacon, sautéed mushrooms and sautéed onions all for $.50 each. His

April 25, 2013

burger also included a choice of two sides. He went with baked beans and kettle chips. Judging from the look of pure pleasure on his face, I would say that he was very satisfied by this burger. I snagged a couple of bites myself and agreed. It was thick and juicy with a nice bit of charring that gave it a good flavor. The bacon was crisp and the mushrooms and onions tasted amazing smothered in the Provolone cheese. He said the baked beans were good and the kettle chips were average. On the whole, it was a very tasty lunch. Our 4-year-old said she wasn’t that hungry yet so we asked for an extra plate for her. She nibbled bites from both of our meals and declared the burger the best. Our total bill including two soft drinks came to $22.56 plus tip. This seemed like good value to me for a very satisfying lunch in a heavy tourist area. Plus, when you factor in the beautiful outdoor seating area and high standard of customer service, it was well worth the money in my opinion. I would definitely recommend Garden Café Ala Fleur for a relaxing and enjoyable lunch in Historic St. Charles. I should also mention that the café does have indoor dining as well. I got a glimpse of it while rushing a certain little person off to the bathroom. The indoor dining room is located in the basement of the historic building, and I didn’t see a ramp anywhere. This could present a problem for anyone who has trouble getting up and down steps. Garden Café Ala Fleur is located at 524 S. Main St. in St. Charles, Mo.

Diuing Delights Pressure cooker can enhance risotto By ELIZABETH KARMEL Associated Press Pressure cookers never really did much for me. They seemed fussy — and scary! All those stories about explosions... Then I used one to make a risotto, a dish that by definition is tedious to make. I was blown away. It simplified the process and — most impressively — sped it up. What normally takes me 45 minutes in a traditional saute pan was done and ready to serve in about 20. That’s my type of risotto! And my type of pan. Pressure cookers really are very cool devices. Because the lids clamp on and create a pressured, steamdriven environment, they allow you to cook at higher temperatures. Normal boiling or steaming cooking methods max out around 212 F, the boiling point of water. Pressure cookers allow for water (as steam) to be superheated, reaching as high as 250 F. The result is a moist, quick method of cooking that produces deliciously tender meats in little time. And modern pressure cookers also happen to be very safe (don’t worry about explosions!). My risotto recipe is simple and delicate because I wanted it to showcase the asparagus. But it would be easy to add a touch of garlic, your favorite mushrooms and even tender spring peas. The second time I made it, I added porcini mushroom powder and it was divine, resulting in a bolder, more umami filled risotto without any mushroom slices. The garlic and mushrooms — or porcini powder — should go in at the beginning

and peas should be added when the asparagus is to let the heat of the steaming rice cook the tender vegetables. I have never had so much fun making risotto. Now that I have the hang of using the pressure cooker, I can’t wait to tackle short ribs, chicken Marbella, whole stuffed artichokes and grits, too — anything that normally takes hours and/or lots of stirring to make! PRESSURE COOKER RISOTTO WITH ASPARAGUS The asparagus is added raw to the rice after it is cooked, letting the delicate green stalks cook just briefly. This light touch leaves the asparagus bright green and slightly crunchy. If you like your asparagus cooked more, you can grill or saute it briefly before adding it to the risotto. But do not add it to the pressure cooker at the same time as the rice or it will overcook.

Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 4 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 1 large shallot, chopped or thinly sliced 1 cup Arborio rice 1/2 cup white wine 2 cups no-salt chicken broth Pinch of salt, plus more to taste Pinch of red pepper flakes 1 tablespoon butter 1 cup small asparagus tips and tops, cut into 1-inch pieces 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives In a medium pressure cooked over medium, heat the oil until shimmering. Add the shallot and saute for 2 to 3 minutes, or until translucent. Increase heat to high and add the rice, stirring to coat. Toast the rice, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the wine and cook until evaporated.

SPRING has SPRUNG!

Add the broth and a pinch each of salt and red pepper flakes. Stir until the mixture comes to a simmer, then lock on the pressure cooker’s lid. Set a timer for 9 minutes. Bring the cooker up to full pressure, then reduce the heat to maintain that level. Cook until the timer goes off. Take the cooker off the heat and

wait 3 minutes, then put the pot in the sink and run cold water over it to release the pressure. Open the cooker; the rice should be creamy. Return the pot to the stovetop over medium heat. Add the butter, asparagus, cheese and chives. Stir until heated through and the butter and cheese have melted. Season with salt and pepper.

Family Focus Science Center offers new OMNIMAX thrill By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Discover the thrill of racing through the air at 500 mph and hovering just 50 feet above the ground with “Air Racers,” the action-packed new film now showing at the Saint Louis Science Center’s OMNIMAX Theater. Narrated by Paul Walker of the “Fast and the Furious” franchise, this documentary film takes moviegoers on a breathtaking exploration of the fastest race in the world. “Air Racers” provides a unique insight into the legendary Reno National Championship Air Races at Northern Nevada’s Valley of Speed. From the unique perspective inside the cockpit, viewers will experience the intensity and high-speed thrills of a sports event like no other. All of the excitement and action has been captured for the very first time for the giant screen. The history of air racing traces its roots back to the beginning of the 20th century when aviation was still in its infancy. In 1909, just six years after the Wright Brothers’ inaugural flight, a young American named Glenn Curtiss won the very first air race in Reims, France. At that race, Curtiss made history when he completed two laps in 15 minutes with a top speed of 46 mph. Air racing continued into the 1930s when the sport evolved into

multi-pylon races that were held in Cleveland and Los Angeles. Later, racing in Reno was resurrected in 1964 by WWII flying ace Bill Stead. The concept remains much the same to this day: pilots fly as low as 50 feet above the ground and up to 500 mph and turn left around an 8.5 mile oval course marked off by giant pylons. “Air Racers” follows the true story of 23-year-old Steve Hinton, Jr., a rookie pilot from California and son of Steve Hinton, Sr., a two-time National Air Race champion. The younger Steve wants to continue his father’s legacy by winning in the most challenging and unpredictable racer class, the “Unlimited.” At twice the speed of a Nascar elite pilots fight for position, wingtip-to-wingtip and head-to-head, with Hinton’s WWIIera P-51 Mustang fighter plane in the world’s fastest motorsport. “Racing at Reno is unlike any other experience,” said Steve Hinton, in a news release. “It’s such a rush! The ground is going by you at 800 feet per second and the adrenaline’s pumping through you.” “Air Racers” is an action-packed, entertaining and visually stunning film presented in 2D at IMAX theatres and digital cinemas. In the immersive OMNIMAX Theater environment moviegoers will discover the thrill of air racing from the pits to Reno’s roaring sky, an exceptional world filled with passion, competition and

excitement combined with top-notch air show performers, including the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds. There is also still time to view “Flight of the Butterflies” at the OMNIMAX Theater. This amazing film documents the journey of the iconic monarch butterfly as it makes its way across North America to the remote mountain peaks of Mexico. Weighing less than a penny, this marvelous creature makes one of the

longest migrations on Earth across a continent, with pinpoint navigational accuracy, to a secluded place it has never been. Follow the monarchs' perilous and extraordinary journey and join hundreds of millions of real butterflies in Mexico. For the first time ever, look inside a chrysalis, thanks to advanced MRI and micro CT scans. The film features breathtaking cinematography and an award-

winning production team, including Oscar winner Peter Parks. It has received consistent rave reviews in independent audience tests across all age groups. Unravel the mysteries and experience the “Flight of the Butterflies.” For more information about “Air Racers” or “Flight of the Butterflies” at the OMNIMAX Theater, the Saint Louis Science Center or its programs, visit www.slsc.org.
