On the Edge of the Weekend
May 15, 2014
People Memories of Mockingbird: An Evening with Scout Friends of the Wildey plan another special event tonight By BILL TUCKER Of The Edge Most Edwardsville High School students – past and present – can tell the story behind “To Kill A Mockingbird.” But if you’d rather see it for yourself, the Friends of the Wildey is offering a unique opportunity to do so on tonight with two showings of the film at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the historic theatre in downtown Edwardsville. And, like the fall screening of “The Creature from the Black Lagoon,” this event will feature one of the original film’s stars. Actress Mary Badham, who portrayed Scout in the 1962 version of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” will be in attendance at both showings to offer her perspective on the film. The event is titled “Memories of Mockingbird: An Evening with Scout” and tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students (high school or younger) and senior citizens. Tickets can be purchased online at www.wildeytheatre.com or by calling the Wildey at 307-1750. Badham appeared as Jean Louise Finch – at the ripe age of 10 – and earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Badham went on to appear in various television series and movies and now travels the country speaking about her
experiences with the film. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. for the 3 p.m. showing and at 6 p.m. for 7 p.m. showing. Movie fans will have an opportunity to have their photo taken with Badham and receive an autograph. Badham will also answer questions prior to the screenings. Movie Trivia – a Friends of the Wildey staple – will begin at 6:30 p.m., prior to the second showing of the film. “’To Kill a Mockingbird’ is by far one of my favorite movies,” said Friends of the Wildey board member and event organizer SJ Morrison. “We’re thrilled to bring Scout in person to the Wildey and to show this masterpiece to a new generation of Edwardsville residents.” Morrison, an EHS graduate himself, was one of those students who read the book as a high school assignment. “I read ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ when I was at Edwardsville High School and it quickly became one of my favorite books,” Morrison said. “Author Harper Lee does an incredible job of bringing to life the people, the places and the tensions of her childhood.” While offering a meet-and-greet with an actor from the film was a hit with “Creature from the Black Lagoon,” Morrison believes this event will be different because of the subject matter.
For The Edge
Mary Badham as she appeared as Scout in "To Kill a Mockingbird."
“’To Kill a Mockingbird’ is one of the greatest movies ever made. Fantastic cast, great story, complex characters and themes which are just as relevant now as they were when the movie was released 50 years ago,” he said. “It’s an important movie so it’s imperative that we provide plenty of context. The Creatures, Cupcakes & Cocktails event last October was a lot of fun. We sold out so quickly that we turned away 100 people at the door. While this event does feature an iconic film and one of its stars in person, it will have a slightly different feel since “Mockingbird” tackles some serious issues.” Still, having the stars themselves
inside the Wildey turns a movie into an experience. “Our goal is to host engaging events that showcase the Wildey and provide an experience that you can’t get anywhere else. Obviously they are fundraisers, so they need to make money for the Wildey as well. But we want to do more than just show a movie, we want to bring the movie to life,” Morrison said. “And one way to do that is to give one of its cast members an opportunity to speak – in person- about her experiences and discuss the film’s cultural impact. To give the audience a chance to ask her questions, get her autograph and have their
May 15, 2014
photo taken.” Among the film's stars are Gregory Peck, who won an Academy Award as Best Actor in a Leading Role, Alice Ghostly and a young Robert Duvall. “To Kill a Mockingbird” is ranked 25th on the American Film Institute’s list of top 100 films of all time. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Wildey Theatre, a city-owned performing arts venue located at 252 North Main St. Sponsors for the event are: Gori-Julian & Associates; Taliana, Buckley & Asa and friends of Joan Spiegel at Land of Lincoln Legal Assistance.

People People planner Moccasin Creek Festival set near Effingham
The inaugural Moccasin Creek Festival, a celebration of roots and Americana music, will be held at “The Stage” at the Marina at Lake Sara, outside of Effingham, IL, June 27-29th. Promoter Bill Poss has announced the lineup, featuring critically acclaimed acts from all over North America, including Fred Eaglesmith, The Bottle Rockets, Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real, Robbie Fulks, The Giving Tree Band, Elizabeth McQueen, Matt Poss Band, Tif Ginn, Cece and the Bandits, Chain Station, Greg Klyma, Swamp Tigers, Poss Brothers Band, LP and the Honeybee, Firebox, and Heather and Marty. Three days of music will start on Friday, June 27th at four p.m. and run until midnight, Saturday from noon to midnight a n d S u n d a y f ro m n o o n t o f o u r p . m . There will be food and beverage vendors (including beer and wine) and there will be artists and artisans displaying and selling their wares. It is a rain-or-shine event and the show will go on unless there is a danger to the performers or the audience. Tickets are on sale now at the web-site www.moccasincreekfestival.com and can be purchased for the weekend or by the day. Camping is available next door at Lake Sara Campground and cabins are available nearby at Anthony Acres. Effingham is home to 18 hotels and over 60 restaurants: www. visiteffinghamil.com. Fred Eaglesmith (Vittoria, ON) is a legendary Canadian songwriter and showman who has been touring North America, and abroad for 30 years. He has 20 critically acclaimed albums, has performed on the Late Show with David Letterman and his songs have been recorded by stars including Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Alan Jackson, the Cowboy Junkies and others. The Bottle Rockets (Festus, MO) were instrumental in developing the alt.country music sound in the early 1990s, influencing generations of roots rockers and country punks like the Gourds, and the Drive-By Truckers. They were the rural heirs to the Clash, the Pogues and the Replacements. Robbie Fulks (Chicago, IL) broke into music flat-picking and singing for legendary bluegrass band Special Consensus. He left the band in 1990 and became an important player in the alt.country music scene releasing many albums on Bloodshot and Geffen Records. Rolling Stone says “Fulks
sounds like the wiseass bastard son of Roger Miller.” His latest CD offers a trad/ bluegrass sound with stunning songs, soaring vocals and blazing instrumentals. Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real (Los Angeles, CA) is newer on the scene but is quickly building a large and loyal fan base all over the world. Lukas first picked up the guitar at age 11 to honor a promise he made to his father and was able to teach himself the craft by playing along to classic Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix songs. This American rock and roll band has played over 400 shows in the past three years and played with Neil Young, John Fogerty, Bob Weir, B.B. King, and Bob Dylan. The Giving Tree Band is a seven piece roots-music outfit from Northern Illinois. The Austin Chronicle explains the band's sound as "Seventies American music with The Band and the Dead as obvious touchstones, plus the kind of country/ almost-bluegrass of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.” Elizabeth McQueen (Austin, TX), after eight years of singing with Asleep at the Wheel, has returned to her own creative career making music ranging from jazz to rock and roll to country swing. Tif Ginn has been touring with the Fred Eaglesmith Traveling Steam Show for five years, fronting her own band, then playing and singing with Fred’s band. Noted for her edgy songwriting and gutsy performance, she plays songs of trial and heartbreak in a rock and roll style. Matt Poss Band from Effingham, IL has been at the heart of Central Illinois’ countryAmericana music scene for over a decade, with tours of Germany and Afghanistan under his belt as well. MPB closes out Friday night at the festival. Chain Station, from Denver, CO will provide their cheeky blend of attitude and altitude, high-energy mountain music, with a heavy emphasis on bluegrass and instrumental expertise.
Circus Flora to open May 29
The beloved St. Louis institution , Circus Flora, powered by Ameren, returns for its 28th season to present "The Pawn," a chess game brought to life through the circus. The World CHess Hall of Fame and the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of St. Louis partner with the circus to create a delightfully imaginative world under the big top next to Powell Hall, May 29 to June 22.
Every June, more than 30,000 audience members gather under the big top and leave behind the everyday, entering a place of intrigue and awe. Here the impossible is possible. Adults as well as children are enthralled by a performance that captures their imaginations and transports them to a bygone era. The Circus Flora experience is palpable: the audience is completely immersed in a spellbinding story that is woven through every detail, from performers to costumes to original music. Drawing from the history of chess, this mythic tale is steeped in right sights, sounds and the mystique of ancient Persia and India. The audience will journey to an exotic world where myth and intellect collide, and the stone city surrenders to the desert's every shifting sands. Follow the Pawn through his journey through curious creatures and intrigues: knights on mounted steed, bishops zigzagging across colored squares, chess pieces flying through the air. In this world, the chess pieces do not wait to be moved. They have their own adventures to play out under the big top. The tale is presented by a cast of handpicked and internationally renowned circus artists. Making his debut under Circus Flora's big top, clown Andy Kuchler plays the Pawn, maneuvering through the enchanting world of the chess board, encountering friends and foes along the way. Kuchler will meet performers and characters such as an equestrian bareback rider, S. Caleb Carinci-Asch, as he balances fearlessly atop his galloping horse. From Finland and making their U.S. debut, Duo Kate and Pasi will captivate with hand-tohand and foot juggling finesse. Andriy Bilobrov and his Jack Russell Terriers will show the audience man's best friends like never before. Claire Kuciejczyk-Kernan mesmerizes the crowd from above with daring swinging-trapesze performance. Also joining this year are six rare, blue-eyed pied camels from the Canary Islands. "The Pawn" will also feature celebrated Colombian flying trapeze artists, The Flying Cortes, who will introduce new twists, spins and summersaults as well as returning favorites The Flying Wallendas and local troupe, The St. Louis Arches. Circus Flora presents a truly immersive experience unlike anything else in the country. As artistic director and producer David Balding explains, "Sometimes we need respite from our everyday realities. Circus Flora takes you out of the ordinary, and deep into a magical world. Once you enter the big top, you forget everything else." Circus Flora will not only thrill its audience,
but it will woo with a beautiful storyline, delight with its comedy and – like any good work of art – is is an experience that is impossible to forget. Tickets are now on sale for Circus Flora’s 27th big-top production, "The Pawn," powered by Ameren. Call 314-289-4040 or visit www. circusflora.org for tickets. Tickets are also available at the Circus Flora Box Office at 3547 Olive Street in Grand Center. Tickets start at $12y. Group tickets are also available. The Pawn opens May 29 with a peanut-free preview and runs through June 22. 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 younger kids or the “kids at heart.” Founded in St. Louis in 1987, Circus Flora is a nonprofit performing arts organization dedicated to sharing the magic of classic, onering circus with audiences of all ages. Circus FLora raises its big top every summer in the arts district at Grand Center. Through its year-round Clowns on Call program, the healing power of Circus Flora brings laughter and respite to thousands of patients and their families every year at two St. Louis-area children's hospitals.

On the Edge of the Weekend
People People planner Science Center to screen D-Day film
The Saint Louis Science Center and 3D Entertainment Distribution invite audiences to step back in time with the new giant screen theater film D-Day: Normandy 1944, which opens at the Science Center’s OMNIMAX Theater on April 25, 2014. In May 1943, World War II is at its apex. To counter Hitler and the Axis forces, the Allies decide to open a second front on the western side of Europe. The Allied forces, led by U.S. General Eisenhower, have just months to organize the operation code-named “Overlord,” with only a 50/50 chance of success, that will break Hitler’s Atlantic Wall fortress and lead to the Battle of Normandy. Narrated by renowned journalist and author Tom Brokaw, D-Day: Normandy 1944 provides a new, penetrating look at this defining moment in history in a truly unique manner. D-Day itself is well-known, yet few know in detail exactly why and how, from the end of 1943 through August 1944, this became the most important location in the world. “We wanted to make a film to pay tribute to the millions of men and women, soldiers and civilians, who gave their lives for our freedom 70 years ago. Regardless of nationality, virtually everyone today has a parent, grandparent or even a greatgrandparent with a connection to World War II,” explained writer and director Pascal Vuong. “I thought for a long time about how to produce a large format documentary on this subject, and finally found my own way of telling this complex story to family audiences using a brand-new ‘cocktail,’ mixing innovative film techniques.” Blending multiple cinematographic formats, including animation, CGI and stunning liveaction images, D-Day: Normandy 1944 brings this monumental event to the world’s largest screens for the very first time. Exploring science, technology, engineering and mathematics, audiences of all ages, including new generations, will discover from a new perspective in breathtaking OMNIMAX how this landing changed the course of history. “What I was drawn to in this film is that it tells us the story of D-Day in a new way that gives such clarity to one of the most important events in the history of mankind,” said Brokaw. “I originally thought this was going to be another traditional documentary featuring grainy black and white footage, but as soon as I saw the first minutes of this film on the giant OMNIMAX screen, I found it irresistible.” “After seeing this film, we think our audiences will feel a deeper gratitude for the courage and sacrifices of these champions of freedom,” said Bert Vescolani, president and CEO of the Saint L o u i s S c i e n c e C e n t e r. “ A n d , because we are a science center, we hope our audiences will discover a deeper appreciation of the science, engineering and technology involved in this monumental event.” Over three years in the making and with a budget of $5 million, all live-action sequences for the film were shot exclusively on location in Normandy, France. No fewer than five CGI and visual special effects companies also collaborated under the creative leadership of N3D LAND Films to complete the
43-minute film. The second large format documentary film from writer and director Vuong, D-Day: Normandy 1944 is produced by N3D LAND P ro d u c t i o n s a n d d i s t r i b u t e d worldwide by 3D Entertainment Distribution. Ronan Chapalain is responsible for the stereography and post production, and retired Colonel Peter Herrly is the main historical advisor. The original musical score was written by Franck Marchal and recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra with conductor Paul Rouger. Producers are Catherine and Pascal Vuong and Sylvain Grain, and Normand McKay served as associate producer. The 70th anniversary of D-Day will be marked by national and local commemorations on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as in Eastern Europe, Asia and Australia throughout 2014. For more information about D-Day: Normandy 1944, please visit slsc.org.

Lineup announced for Parties in the Park
The theme for the 2014 DuQuoin State Fair will be "Love A Fair: Since 1923," the fair's manager announced recently. "If there has ever been a fair that people have loved, it is the DuQuoin State Fair," Fair Manager Shannon Woodworth said. "Since 1923, millions of people have fallen in love with the sights, sounds and smells of this fair. The relationship this fair has with the people of Southern Illinois is a bond that hasn't been broken for 91 years." The DuQuoin State Fair became a major area attraction almost from its start, but garnered national attention in 1942 when the Illinois State Fair in Springfield was suspended due to the grounds being converted into a World War II training center, explained fair historian Fred Huff. As a result, the Grand Circuit harness program scheduled for Springfield was moved to DuQuoin and for the first time nationallyprominent horses competed there. Horsemen were impressed with the facilities, including trainer-driver Ben White and his Hambletonian winner, Volo Song, as were Grand Circuit officials who placed DuQuoin
St. Louis’ original, longest-running outdoor happy hour, Parties in the Park in Downtown Clayton, kicks off its 31st season May 14 and continues on the second Wednesday of each month through September 10. Parties in the Park will be returning to last year’s popular location on Central between Forsyth Boulevard and Maryland Avenue. “The response to last year’s move to Central was unanimous. Everyone loved it,” said Ellen Gale, executive director of the Clayton Chamber of Commerce. “Businesses and restaurants saw an increase in sales and traffic, and those in attendance had a blast.” Entertainment for the 31st season of Parties is confirmed and is sure to keep party-goers moving and grooving all summer long.

on its schedule. Now owning its own Grand Circuit racing dates, the DuQuoin Fair continued to grow, constructing a splendid, 130-stall, horse barn the length of two football fields with a Southern mansion appearance. A new mile-long track was constructed as was an 8,000-seat grandstand, which was completed just in time for use following a midsummer fire in 1945 that destroyed the initial facility adjacent to the halfmile track that is still in daily use for training purposes. A basketballcourt size stage immediately adjacent to the grandstand was a unique feature and triggered more emphasis being placed on elaborate night shows that soon became a highlight of the fair's may attractions. Replacing the steady succession of acrobats, jugglers, comics and animal acts that had been the basic attractions for its first 25 years, the fair switched to more prominent entertainers like Mandrake the Magician, Beatrice Kay and Morton Downey. Bob Hope was the first superstar to play at DuQuoin in 1950, but such bookings soon became standard
practice with the likes of Eddie Fisher, the Mills Brothers and others gracing the stage. In 1964, the grandstand entertainment included performances by Ray Price, Skeeter Davis, Jimmy Dickens and Bill Anderson, marking the first time fair management offered country music. By then, too, the fair had become the new "Home of the Hambletonian" and suddenly was a fixture on the national sports scene. Motorized racing, which had returned in the late 1940s, was equally prominent. In fact, Indianapolis 500 drivers became regulars in DuQuoin's three days of auto racing. A.J. Foyt won 100-mile races at DuQuoin in 1960, '61, '63 and '64, the same years he was crowned national champion by the United States Auto Club. It was a true winning combination: top entertainers like Hope, Red Skelton, Perry Como and Sammy Davis, Jr., the Hambletonian with the nation's finest 3-year-old trotters, their trainers and drivers, and the likes of Tony Bettenhausen, Don Branson and Norm Nelson challenging Foyt every Labor Day weekend.

“Hazzard” favorite to appear at car show
The actor who made Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane an icon of the early 1980s is the featured celebrity at this year’s Greenville Graffiti Car Show. James Best, one of the co-stars of “The Dukes of Hazzard,” will sign autographs and serve as a celebrity judge of the classic cars and trucks on Saturday, June 14 in downtown Greenville. He will also present his one man show “Best of Hollywood” on Friday, June 13. Best’s career began in 1950 and he soon appeared alongside some of Hollywood’s biggest legends including James Stewart in “Winchester ’73” and Humphrey Bogart in “The Caine Mutiny.” Best was also featured in two of Universal Pictures biggest franchises---“Ma and Pa Kettle at the Fair” and “Francis Goes to West Point.” Fans of 1950s horror movies may remember James Best as the star of the 1959 cult classic “The Killer Shrews.” His television appearances included two episodes of “The Andy Griffith Show” and three episodes of “The Twilight Zone.” With over 180 acting credits to his name, Best’s most beloved character was Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane from 1979 to 1985 on “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Rosco, under the direction of Boss Hogg, spent each week chasing after the Duke boys. Car show organizers have received numerous requests to bring in a cast member from “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Best is expected to be a big draw to the event. In conjunction with his appearance at the Greenville Graffiti Car Show, Best’s one man show---“Best of Hollywood”---will be performed the night before at the Globe Theater, on the Greenville square. This 90 minute journey through Best’s career offers fans an intimate look behind the curtains, soundstages, and backlots of the studios and stars. Television and movie clips will be woven through humorous anecdotes, reminiscences, and Best’s imitation of friend and co-star James Stewart. The Greenville Graffiti Car Show

the Top 10 “Hell on the Heart” as well as Top 20 hit “Smoke A Little Smoke” and Top 10 smash “Love Your Love The Most,” which were both certified Gold. Sinners Like Me spawned three Top 20 singles: “How ‘Bout You,” “Two Pink Lines,” and “Guys Like Me.” Dwight Yoakam has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, placing him in an elite group of global superstars. Nearly 40 of Yoakam’s singles have charted, with 14 peaking in the Top 10, including the hits “Honky Tonk Man,” “Please, Please Baby,” “Little Ways,” “I Sang Dixie,” “It Only Hurts When I Cry,” and “Fast as You.” He is a 21-time nominated, 2-time GRAMMY Award winner. In celebration of his latest critically acclaimed album, 3 Pears, he received the Artist of the Year award at the 2013 Americana Music Honors & Awards ceremony, the

most prestigious award offered by the organization. In 2014, Yoakam will appear as a recurring guest star in multiple episodes of the thrilling CBS series, “Under the Dome,” based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel of the same name.

Growing up in the water town of Deale, Maryland, their close-nit-family of seven spent most nights not in front of the television, but writing and playing songs. In April 2011, Warner Chappell/King Pen Music offered them a publishing deal. A year later, Capitol Records offered them a record deal. The Brothers Osborne are currently in the studio finishing their debut album, an album they describe as “aggressive, bold and fragile at times.”

Eric Church’s The Outsiders World Tour will launch in North America on September 11, 2014 with 31 arena dates being announced today. Tickets for the tour are on sale with additional information made available on EricChurch.com. Members of the Church Choir will have access to a pre-sale starting on April 15. Church selected Dwight Yoakam as the special guest for the entire tour. Opening the tour on different dates throughout the first leg will be rising country music duo Brothers Osborne, critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Brandy Clark, or the hard rocking band Halestorm. Hailed as a top entertainer by The New York Times, Rolling Stone, SPIN Magazine, and more, Church will bring his rip-roaring attitude when he performs at venues such as Madison Square Garden, Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, the Sprint Center in Kansas City, the Arena at Gwinnett Center in Atlanta, Thompson-Boling Arena in Knoxville, and FedExForum in Memphis, among others. Church will also return to the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, N.C. where
he sold more than 15,000 tickets in 2012 as part of his headlining arena tour, The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour—which Pollstar named a Top Tour of 2012. While The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour employed a succession of backdrops as the focus of the show, Church's The Outsiders World Tour will use a much more high tech design and will offer fans a 360° view of the entertainer and his band. Church will perform at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis on Sept. 13. On sale dates and ticket information for each market will be announced on EricChurch.com. The best seats on The Outsiders World Tour will once again be paperless so fans get them instead of scalpers. A limited number of VIP tickets for each show will also be available for purchase. Each VIP ticket includes a premium ticket in the first 15 rows or in the general admission pit, an invitation to a pre-show party at The Outsiders Joint, a two song acoustic pre-show performance by Eric Church, a limited edition show poster, and a dedicated VIP concert concierge. Fans have the chance to gain access to pre-sale tickets for each show by becoming a Standard or Premium member of the Church Choir. Join the Church Choir by visiting http://smarturl.it/ churchchoir. Church’s current album, The Outsiders, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart and the Billboard Country Albums Chart earlier this year, and his current hit single “Give Me Back My Hometown,” is Top 5-and-rising. “Eric Church is working on a level that few other country artists of his generation can touch,” said Ken Tucker at NPR Music in his review of the album, continuing, “Shrewd, defiant, sly and funny, Eric Church has succeeded in what he set out to do: He’s using the power he’s accrued from making hit records to make exactly the kind of album he wants, heedless of industry approval. And this is how good he is: Now he’ll go out and — through the singles he’ll release, the touring he’ll do and the videos he’ll make —

O'Jays to perform at The Fox
Fox Concerts presents The O'Jays and Chaka Kahn on Friday, June 20 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $125, $90, $75, $65, $55, $45 and are on sale online at metrotix.com, by calling 314-5341111, or in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office. The O'Jays are living legends… American treasures. The term "living legend" is often overused and abused, but with The O'Jays, well, there's little argument that the honorable tag truly applies. With their place in modern music secure, The O'Jays could have cruisecontrolled to that comfy hammock on a sandy beach, umbrelladecorated drinks in hand. Why? (1) An ocean-wide body of work that spawned 24 Top Ten smashes and 59 total charted songs. (2) Incredibly energetic and dynamic live shows. (3) Mad respect for their Olympian vocals. And (4) their social and political impact on generations and nations. But doing things slowly is not Eddie Levert, Sr., Walter Williams, Sr. and Eric Nolan Grant’s modus operandi. After 40+ years making such international hits as "Back Stabbers," "For The Love Of Money," "Darlin' Darlin' Baby," "Love Train," "I Love Music," "Use Ta Be My Girl" and "Have You Had Your Love Today,". There have been “four faces” of The O’Jays. This vocal group from Canton, Ohio originated with Eddie
Levert, SR., Walter Williams, SR., William Powell, Bobby Massey and Bill Isles and they were named after Cleveland DJ Eddie O’Jay. Isles left the group in 1965. Massey left to become a record producer in 1971 and Levert, Williams and Powell continues as a trio. Powell retired from touring due to illness in late 1975, passing at the age of 35 in 1977 and was replaced by Sammy Strain, formerly with Little Anthony & The Imperials. Strain returned to his former group in 1993 and was replaced by Nathaniel Best. After the departure in 1995 of Nathaniel Best, Eddie Levert, SR. and Walter Williams, SR. reached out to Eric Nolan Grant, a gifted vocalist who was already a part of the group’s extended Cleveland-based musical family. Their chart-topping album “Love You To Tears” marked Grant’s first appearance with the group. Chaka Khan is one of the world's most gifted and celebrated musicians, with a rich musical legacy, the 10-time Grammy Award-winner is looking forward to a celebration of a lifetime. A songwriter, actor, author, philanthropist, entrepreneur and activist, Chaka Khan has influenced generations of recording artists. She has the rare ability to sing in seven music genres, including R&B, pop, rock, gospel, country, world music and classical. Affectionately known around the world as Chaka, she is revered by millions of fans as well as her peers for her timeless, classic and unmatched signature music style and ability. The late, great Miles Davis often said, "She [Chaka] sings like my horn." And the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin says, "[Chaka] is a one- of- a -kind, premier vocalist."

QuickGlance Movie Reviews
"Heaven Is for Real"
Continuing the recent trend of faith-based films, including “Noah” and “Son of God,” “Heaven Is for Real” is a sweet tale based on a 4-year-old boy’s account of his trip to heaven that’s likely to please the devout, but won’t entice religious cynics. There’s little doubt the T.D. Jakes-produced adaptation of Todd Burpo’s Christian non-fiction best-seller will have a builtin audience, especially on Easter weekend. After undergoing harrowing surgery for a ruptured appendix, young Colton Burpo (Connor Corum) begins recalling his journey for his family: Angels carried him to heaven where he met Jesus (played by Mike Mohrhardt, whose face we never quite see), as well as God, Colton’s greatgrandfather and the miscarried sister he never knew he had. Such talk frightens his older sister (Lane Styles) and worries his pastor father, Todd (Greg Kinnear), and mother, Sonja (Kelly Reilly). As Colton becomes more verbal about his supposed encounter, the local paper in the small Nebraska town starts reporting the story. This leads some members of Todd’s congregation (Thomas Haden Church and Margo Martindale) to turn against the Burpo family. Though Todd sticks up for his son, his faith is also tested. “We ask these kids to believe this stuff,” he says to his wife, “but I don’t even know if I believe it myself.” But Todd is captivated, as we are, by his son’s innocence — especially when Colton tells him things he couldn’t possibly know, such as how he saw his parents cope, each in their own way, during his near-fatal surgery. RATED: PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for “thematic material including some medical situations.” RUNNING TIME: 100 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.
First, we had Scarlett Johansson as a human-like operating system. Now, Johnny Depp has been uploaded. If the singularity — when artificial intelligence surpasses human smarts — is indeed coming, at least it has decent taste in movie star avatars. First-time director Wally Pfister ’s “Transcendence” isn’t so much the “Him” to Spike Jonze’s “Her” as it’s a more dystopian vision of the meeting of human consciousness and computer intelligence. It turns out that when computers get sophisticated, worse things can happen than Joaquin Phoenix getting his feelings hurt. But whereas “Her” was playful and personal about familiar futuristic concepts, “Transcendence” is clunky and lifeless. It’s like the movie version of a paranoid TED talk. In the early scenes of “Transcendence,” Dr. Will Caster (a disappointingly sleepy Depp) is a TED-style master of the universe, speaking confidently in front of large video screens to eager listeners about neurology and artificial intelligence. But there are also protesters to his potentially all-powerful invention: the Physically Independent Neural Network (PINN), an early artificial intelligence propelled by a room full of computers that Caster believes could, among other things, cure cancer. An assassination attempt with a radiation-laced bullet leaves Caster with weeks to live. Desperate to keep his mind alive, his loyal, sycophantic wife and fellow researcher Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) uploads Caster’s brain to a PC with PINN hardware. Helping her is their good friend and colleague Max (Paul Bettany, serving as narrator).

"Deciding Annie Parker"
“Decoding Annie Parker,” based on a true story, is an often uneasy, yet sentimental and witty tale of two women, one a cancer patient and the other a geneticist. Canadian Annie Parker (Amy Morton) battled breast cancer in the 1970s — and beat it. But after losing her mother and older sister to the disease, she becomes convinced that cancer is stalking her family. Though most doctors then said cancer was a stroke of bad luck, Annie believes she’ll get breast cancer like her immediate family members. Annie checks for lumps daily. And after she discovers one, she must have her left breast removed. Meanwhile, in Berkeley, California, geneticist Dr. MaryClaire King (Helen Hunt) is researching genetic links to breast cancer. When Annie learns of this, she starts doing her own research with a medical student and former nurse (Rashida Jones). Writer-director Steven Bernstein, who was inspired to write “Annie Parker” after reading Parker’s unpublished memoir, offsets gloomy moments in the film with ironic humor, as when Annie breaks from oral sex to suggest that she quickly check her husband for testicular cancer. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “language and some sexual content.” RUNNING TIME: 91 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.
There may be no whiter genre than the costume drama. The flowing gowns, the horse-drawn carriages, the codes of aristocratic courtship all evoke an era not exactly known for diversity. That’s why the simple poster of “Belle,” a new film directed by Amma Asante, is so striking. A beautiful, finely outfitted black woman in an 18th century parlor room stares back with regal poise. The historical incongruity is all the more arresting because, it turns out, it’s real history. “Belle” is the based-on-a-true-story of an 18th century mixedrace woman, Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), brought up in British aristocracy. While such a tale is undoubtedly rich, filled with questions of identity, class and race, “Belle” is unnaturally rendered like a Jane Austen story of dowries and engagements. It’s an awkward, ill-fitting match of social progress and costume drama convention. And those 18th century conventions of speech and etiquette are often gratingly stilted in “Belle,” stifling the film of any naturalism. Instead, “Belle,” made with fine intentions, has none of the uniqueness of its remarkable subject. “Belle,” written by Misan Sagay, was inspired by a 1779 double portrait of Belle and Lady Elizabeth Murray — one biracial, the other white — captured in seeming friendship. Sagay and Asante (who’s made one film before, 2004’s “Way of Life”) were intrigued by the story behind the painting.

If ever two genres of film were inextricably intertwined, it would seem to be the frat house movie and the gross-out comedy. After all, do frats ever do anything that's NOT gross? Not in the movies, they don't. "Neighbors," starring (and produced by) Seth Rogen and directed by Nicholas Stoller, proudly straddles these two genres and boldly tosses in a third: The "We've-just-becomeparents, NOW-what?" movie. You know these: Baby arrives, cute as a button but bringing ALL kinds of trouble, and then things are resolved in a syrupy sweet finale. It's safe to say that syrupy sweetness is not a problem with "Neighbors." In fact, it is noisy, crude, profane, gross, and sometimes mean. Luckily, it's also extremely funny, and you'll realize by the end that it has some heart, too. Most importantly, what it may suffer in narrative coherence it makes up for with a first-rate cast — the reliably funny Rogen, the game-for-anything Rose Byrne, and in the most pleasant surprise, a truly excellent Zac Efron as an immature, narcissistic, vindictive and, by the way, unbelievably buff frat leader whose obnoxious brio might just be masking deeper issues. (Zac, as a parent who had to watch the "High School Musical" films at least 400 times, maybe more, let me just say: I forgive you now.) RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America "for pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, and drug use throughout." RUNNING TIME: 96 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.
The Coppola family has given us Francis Ford Coppola, Nicolas Cage, Sofia Coppola, Jason Schwartzman, Talia Shire and some very good wine. Gia Coppola, 27, the granddaughter of Francis and niece of Sofia, is the latest Coppola to enter the family business. "Palo Alto" is her debut, an adaptation of James Franco's book of short stories about disaffected California youth. From "The Outsiders" to "The Virgin Suicides," teenage wastelands have been a Coppola specialty, whereas Schwartzman presented a more idiosyncratic portrait of teen angst in the great "Rushmore." In "Palo Alto," Gia very much takes after the soft aesthetic of Sofia ("The Bling Ring," ''Somewhere") in presenting a cluster of direction-less California teenagers backed by a mellow, synthesizer-heavy score. "Palo Alto" is rife with the stylistic clichés established by Gia's aunt and directors like Gus Van Sant. But for a first film, "Palo Alto" shows promise in its character-first storytelling and its young filmmaker's evident ease with actors. Coppola doesn't force anything on her characters, instead capturing the unthinking momentariness of youth. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for "strong sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and pervasive language, all involving teens." RUNNING TIME: 98 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

"Belle" a drama with a new face By JAKE COYLE Associated Press There may be no whiter genre than the costume drama. The flowing gowns, the horse-drawn carriages, the codes of aristocratic courtship all evoke an era not exactly known for diversity. That’s why the simple poster of “Belle,” a new film directed by Amma Asante, is so striking. A beautiful, finely outfitted black woman in an 18th century parlor room stares back with regal poise. The historical incongruity is all the more arresting because, it turns out, it’s real history. “Belle” is the based-on-a-true-story of an 18th century mixed-race woman, Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), brought up in British aristocracy.
While such a tale is undoubtedly rich, filled with questions of identity, class and race, “Belle” is unnaturally rendered like a Jane Austen story of dowries and engagements. It’s an awkward, ill-fitting match of social progress and costume drama convention. And those 18th century conventions of speech and etiquette are often gratingly stilted in “Belle,” stifling the film of any naturalism. Instead, “Belle,” made with fine intentions, has none of the uniqueness of its remarkable subject. “Belle,” written by Misan Sagay, was inspired by a 1779 double portrait of Belle and Lady Elizabeth Murray — one biracial, the other white — captured in seeming friendship. Sagay and Asante (who’s made one film before, 2004’s “Way of Life”) were intrigued by the story behind the painting.
Little, though, is known of Belle, so the film often feels as though it’s grasping to imagine what her life was like, and to artificially connect her with larger story lines from her time. “Belle” begins with her Royal Navy Admiral father (Matthew Goode, whose presence is missed as soon as he departs, setting sail for the Indies) dropping a young Belle off with his uncle, William Murray, the Earl of Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson) at their palatial country estate in Hampstead. They are initially appalled, but give in to his insistence that the illegitimate Belle has his blood, and should be raised accordingly. The film shifts to Belle and Lady Elizabeth Murray (Sarah Gadon) as young women. They are beginning to see society and possible
suitors, though Belle is largely naive to her lesser status. When guest come for dinner, she isn’t allowed at the table. But Belle still has currency as a bride thanks to her lineage and her inheritance. As suitors circle each girl (Murray has no such dowry to offer), the movie empathetically comments on the variety of unjust inequalities, whether by skin color or gender, pocket book or standing. Belle is drawn to the idealistic son of a vicar (a low station) named John Davinier (Sam Reid). “Belle” also works in a famous event, the 1781 Zong massacre, in which a British slave ship drowned some 142 slaves in the Caribbean. The traders claimed to not have enough water for the voyage and made an insurance claim on the lost “cargo” that went to the height of Britain’s courts.
"The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is nothing new By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge I would have traded the opportunity to review another film this week in a heartbeat. But it seems the only thing anyone was interested in selling tickets to was the newest Marvel film, "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." This one's a property of Sony; that's why it's out so hot on the heels of Captain America's sequel last month. It also explains Fox's next X-Men movie in two weeks. For goodness sake. When's it going to be enough? I never thought I'd long for the days of a simple Transformers movie, but 4th of July is looking mighty tempting. Though I liked it much better, Spider-Man 2 is essentially the same film as the first one from a
few years ago. Peter Parker is still searching for the answers about his parents' deaths , trying to make a lasting relationship work with Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone, she of the superior taste in shoes), and protecting New York City from the dangers of the sinister Oscorp. Gwen's even talking about heading to London for an internship at Oxford. But wait! It isn't all about web-slinging his way through the Canyon of Heroes and hiding his powers from Aunt May (Sally Field). This time there's some dangerous super villains that need his attention. Not new? My mistake. The major plot point of Pa r t 2 i s t h e c r e a t i o n o f t h e villain Electro (Jamie Foxx), a glowing , blue-skinned master m a n i p u l a t o r o f e l e c t r i c i t y.
As with any good back story, Electro was once Max Dillon, a timid, socially awkward engineer for Oscorp that was unhappy over the design plans his company stole without giving him credit. While making some routine repairs in one of the genetic engineering labs , Max falls into a tank of amped up electric eels. His origin is pretty well the same w a y Pe t e r b e c a m e S p i d e r Man, but Foxx's performance is wickedly manic. It's basically his character from The Soloist. Wh e r e ' s R o b e r t D ow n ey, J r. / Iron Man when you need him? When Electro goes on a blackout vendetta against the city, Peter and Gwen race to the city's power grid center to help restore lights to the Big Apple.
R e m e m b e r, t h e s e a r e s c i e n c e high school kids. After a showy battle of special effects, and a defeat of Electro, the pair are quickly back in battle w i t h t h e a p p e a r a n c e o f Th e Green Goblin (Dane DeHaan), Peter's childhood friend, Harry O s b o r n . Th e a e r i a l b a t t l e i s amazing indeed and ultimately winds up in a glass clock tower where Gwen is thrown back and forth between hero and villain like a ragdoll. It's very edge-of-your-seat exciting and definitely the climax of the picture. There are numerous times in this movie where Spider-Man just ambles up to people or stands around talking to cops. I found this a little disconcerting. A little guy in a rubber suit
May 15, 2014
does not look heroic when he's standing in the street. This is especially true at he encounters and intends to do battle with The Rhino, an escaped convict named Aleksei Sytsevich (Paul Giamatti). Fans of this bad guy - a weirdo with a barbed wire tattoo around his bald head might have to wait for the next inevitable sequel, however. He doesn't get much screen time before the end of this one. Some fans are convinced that this film is just a springboard f or a f ilm about The Sinist er Six, Spidey's all-star team of enemies. That might be fun. "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" runs 161 minutes and is rated PG-13 for sequences of sci-fi action/violence. I give this film two stars out of four.

Religion Former engineer sculpts 100,000 crosses By ED TODD Midland (Texas) Reporter-Telegram Witnessing miracles and healings in his life has emboldened Fred Meissner to gently portray God’s love and the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the artistry of the sculptured Christian cross. “The people who really know the Lord have joy and holy peace,” said Meissner, an 80-year-old former electrical engineer at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). He figured that the cross, which he has artistically fashioned with an ordinary pocket-knife cut into indigenous and exotic woods such as oak, birch, driftwood, cottonwood, maple, mahogany, walnut and soapberry 100,000 times over more than 20 years, would awaken youngsters and seniors alike to its message. Crosses fit for a bola tie or wall art of various sizes and cultures cover an array of designs, such as Greek, gothic and Celtic to blessed heart, halo and victory. By faith deep within his very soul, Meissner became an artist drawn to the Christian cross, a bearer and
People planner First openly gay Episcopal bishop divorces husband
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The first openly gay bishop in the Episcopal church and the global Anglican Communion has announced he is divorcing his husband. Retired Bishop Gene Robinson announced that he is divorcing Mark Andrew in an email to the Diocese of New Hampshire and an article for The Daily Beast. The couple entered into a civil union in 2008 that converted to a marriage when New Hampshire legalized gay marriage in 2010. Robinson's election in 2003 as the first openly gay Anglican bishop created an international uproar and led conservative Episcopalians to break away from the main church in the United States. He writes that details of his divorce are private and that he can't repay the debt he owes Andrew "for his standing by me through the challenges of the last decade." Robinson had previously been married to a woman and had two children before he and his wife divorced.
interpreter of the cross in its myriad of cultural styles and universal message. Indeed, Meissner is a sculptor, perhaps an artisan, certainly way beyond the idling pastime of a whittler back in the olden days when about every country boy and his city cousins carried a pocket knife. His sculpting tool is ordinary, nothing fancy, a three-bladed Old Timer or an Irish brand. He shapes artistic versions of the Christian cross, symbol of redemption and abiding love, “joy and peace to our hearts and relief to our conscience,” as Meissner notes in a message designed for each of 100,000 crosses which he has fashioned since 1993 and distributes in West Texas and, via missionaries, the world over. Meissner is a cheery soul who has no quarter for woe or excuses. He is not easily discouraged, as his life bears witness. Meissner has suffered life’s trials, endured and prevailed in developing and steeling his character. He was tested at home, at school, at college, at work in the scientific world and in a marriage that went awry and one that soars heavenly.

“Í have been a man of faith all my life,” Meissner said. “The joy of the Lord gives me peace.” What some folks might term coincidences or mere happenstance, Meissner discerns miracles, which strengthens his faith and his passion to share the message of the cross. Throughout his life, Meissner re c a l l e d m i r a c l e s a n d G o d ’ s guidance. Growing up during the Great Depression and the World War II years on a 160-acre cotton farm in the old Prairie Lee community between Midland and Greenwood, Meissner said “the Lord always provided” two cottontail rabbits two to three times a week for him to shoot with a .22-caliber rifle to help feed the family. He recalled that his father, Gus, was twice struck by lightning, once while driving a team of horses and then while driving a two-row, steellugged Farmall tractor years apart but in about the same spot. When he graduated from the eighth grade at the rural Prairie Lee School in 1948, “I didn’t know if I was the dunce or the valedictorian,” Meissner said wryly of the twostudent class.
the sentiment of his controversial comments. Republican Steve Hickey, who also is a Sioux Falls pastor, has received both praise and backlash for his remarks. He believes people are tired of hearing the religious argument against homosexuality and wants medical professionals to come forward to explain the health risks of homosexual activity. The South Dakota Democratic Party has called the remarks "reprehensible." Hickey told the Argus Leader he "could have spent more time to be more precise."

GENEVA (AP) — The Vatican has released comprehensive statistics for the first time on how it has disciplined priests accused of raping and molesting children: It says 848 priests have been defrocked and another 2,572 given lesser sanctions over the past decade. The Vatican's U.N. ambassador to Geneva, Archbishop Silvano Tomasi, revealed the figures during a second day of grilling Tuesday by a U.N. committee monitoring implementation of the U.N. treaty against torture. Tomasi insisted the convention applied only inside the tiny Vatican City State. He nevertheless released

He excelled in the slide-rule. Years later when he was working as an electrical engineer at NASA, he still used the slide-rule while many other engineers switched to the emerging computer. For his work on the Apollo missions in the 1960s and 1970s from circling Planet Earth and the moon landings to the “tremendous miracle” of the aborted Apollo 13 mission, Meissner was awarded the NASA Achievement Award. Meissner said “the Lord gave me (critical esoteric) knowledge” which he was able to pass onto NASA engineers and scientists. Furthermore, he was able to share with NASA engineers and scientists critical information which he had gleaned when he was assigned to Minuteman and Polaris submarinelaunched ballistic missiles at Aerojet in California. By mid-1970s, Meissner had left NASA and to work on his wife’s family’s dairy farm.

At Midland High School, class of 1952, Meissner excelled in mathematics and physics, earning A-grades and was deemed the school’s “smartest student” in plane and solid geometry. Otherwise, he was a virtual failure in schoolwork and college courses allied with grammar, reading, writing and literature, a ne’er-do-well in those areas all caused, he found out in recent years, by severe dyslexia. Otherwise, he was brilliant in mathematics, physics and electrical engineering but dismal in courses associated with the English language. “They (mathematics and physics) teachers wondered why I didn’t make the National Honor Society,” M e i s s n e r s a i d . H o w e v e r, h i s English teacher “didn’t share that sentiment.” “I slaved over writing,” Meissner said. “When I write (even today), it takes all the energy I’ve got.”

Diuing Delights Glazed salmon great for grills By ELIZABETH KARMEL Associated Press With grilling season upon us, we’ll all be looking for new and delicious ways to feed a crowd. So I want to share one of my favorites — a center-cut salmon fillet. All salmon grills up wonderfully, but center-cut fillets are particularly great when feeding larger groups. Because these fillets tend to have a uniform thickness, they cook up evenly (and are harder to overcook). And that means all your guests can eat at the same time. And by all, I mean a lot. Larger fillets can feed upward of 10 people. They also happen to look pretty impressive on a platter. When buying salmon fillets, I opt for skin-on. The skin adds flavor and protects the delicate fish during grilling. The skin also gives you a nifty way to remove the fish from the grill with no fear of sticking. Start by having your fishmonger cut the skin from the fillet, then place the fillet back on the skin before wrapping it.
When ready to cook, you simply set the skin on the grill, then place the salmon on top of it. The salmon even could be cut into individual portions before being placed on the skin. Then just cook as directed and remove from the grill (lifting it off the skin) using a spatula. I prefer wild salmon to farmraised, but there are some good sustainable farm-raised options, too. The trick is to smell the fish. If it smells briny and clean, it is fresh. If it has any “fishy” or ammonia smell, do not buy it. I once bought a piece of fish that had a slight odor when raw and as I cooked it, it turned my whole backyard into a stink bomb! The moral of the story is that you should not cook fish that is past its prime. Once you have your piece of fish, remove it from the paper and slowly and gently run your fingers up and down the flesh to feel for any small bones that have been left in it. You can remove these with fish pliers, cooking tweezers or standard drugstore tweezers. Continued on Page 23

Sleep apnea affects almost every family in America. Most people with this condition are instructed to use a mask and hose (CPAP therapy) to force air down the nose and throat. The majority of people told to use a CPAP do not like it and about half stop using the device within a week. Most people are not aware that there is another answer! Oral appliance therapy is a very successful treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. It is a comfortable and discreet way to achieve rejuvenating sleep, gain energy during the day and travel comfortably. Today’s oral appliances are over 90% successful and have been recommended by the America Academy of Sleep Medicine since 2006.

“I used a CPAP for about 10 years. It was restrictive and cumbersome and would keep me awake at times during the night. I learned about the oral sleep appliance at a local seminar. My appliance is very natural to wear, helps me sleep better and I no longer snore. I felt better the first night I used it. My appliance is well worth the cost, especially considering my health and well-being are at stake. I’ve found the staff at Dentistry Wtih TLC to be professional and Dr. Smith is very personable.

“My chiropractor recommended I talk with Dr. Smith about using a sleep appliance to treat my sleep apnea. I’m so glad I did because now I am sleeping well, I’m no longer tired and my headaches are gone. I feel so much better and I can think more clearly. If you are thinking about getting a sleep appliance, do it! Dentistry With TLC is great. I love that they have great technology, like the take-home sleep study.”
“I tried to use a CPAP but couldn’t get used to it because it was too binding and made me claustrophobic. I got used to my oral appliance in just one night! It’s very easy to put on, I can move around in bed and sleep in any position I want. I no longer snore! This helps me and my husband sleep better. The staff at Dentistry With TLC are so friendly that I have them do all my dental work too.”

Dr. Anna Smith has over 95% success with oral appliance therapy. She provides more Somnomed oral sleep appliances than any dentist in the United States. She began treating people with sleep apnea about six years ago when her husband was diagnosed. He couldn’t tolerate the CPAP and didn’t want to have painful surgery. Dr. Smith made him an oral appliance and they have both been sleeping better ever since.

Since I’ve been using my appliance I sleep better at night and have more energy during the day. I no longer use my CPAP and don’t have to deal with the noise of my CPAP when I sleep, I don’t wake up during the night and my wife sleeps better too.

Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 2-pound center-cut salmon fillet (about 1 inch thick), skin separated, then replaced (see above) Olive oil Salt and ground white or black pepper 1/4 cup maple syrup Juice and zest of 1/2 small orange 2 tablespoons bourbon Heat the grill to medium and prepare it for indirect cooking. On a charcoal grill, this entails banking the coals to one side and cooking on the cooler side. On a gas grill, then means turning off one side (or the center burner) and cooking over the cooler section. Check for and remove any small bones in the salmon. Brush the salmon on all sides with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Lay the fish, skin-side down, directly on the cooking grate on the cooler side of the grill. Cook the salmon until opaque, but still moist, 20 to 25 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together the maple syrup, orange zest and juice, the bourbon and a pinch of salt. Brush the glaze over the salmon during the final 10 minutes. Do not turn the salmon during cooking. To transfer the fish to a serving platter, slide a wide spatula between the flesh and the skin. Lift the salmon off the grill, leaving the skin behind. Cover the salmon with foil to keep warm. Slide the skin over to the hot side of the grill, then close the lid. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the skin is crisp and the salmon oils are bubbling. Remove the skin from the grill and serve on the side as you would a chip. ••• My son’s fourth grade math homework has taught me an incredibly valuable lesson. About bourbon. Inappropriate association, you say? Perhaps. But if a bit of bourbon is what it takes for me to safely usher my offspring through the woes of improper fractions, division patterns, quadrants and perimeter calculations, then I say pour me another round, and make it snappy. OLD FASHIONED (SPRING) My version of the classic old fashioned is more citrusy than sweet. Traditional recipes often include a maraschino cherry, but I find that it muddies the flavor. Start to finish: 5 minutes Servings: 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1 large strip of orange or lemon zest Dash of orange bitters 2 ounces bourbon 1 large ice cube In tumbler or rocks glass, combine the sugar, zest and bitters. Using a spoon or muddler, lightly mash the zest into the sugar. Add the bourbon, then stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the ice. KENTUCKY TROPICS (SUMMER) Start to finish: 5 minutes Servings: 1
