People planner Spink Pavillion open at MoBOT Experience the newly renovated Spink Pavilion at the Missouri Botanical Garden! The historic building has been renovated not only to preserve the architectural integrity of the original entrance, but also to provide the consummate visitor experience. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows allow guests to experience the Garden’s spectacular beauty any time, day or evening. A new threeseason awning, new lighting, and other features enhance its beauty and functionality. The increased capacity of the building can host larger groups. Spink Pavilion boasts many new sustainable features that not only enhance the experience for those holding events, but also showcase the Garden’s commitment to advancing sustainability. Among the new features are renova t e d re s t ro o m s a n d t h e addition of a large family restroom meeting the design standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a spacious new bride’s room, and an upgraded sophisticated video/sound system. New floorto-ceiling glass windows replace the old mullion style windows and doors and offer an inspiring panoramic view into the Garden for those enjoying the space. New HVAC systems insure comfortable room temperatures all year long. New lighting has been added in the interior and exterior of the building, along with a permanent three-season awning. The awning provides an enhanced pre-function area perfect for mingling before moving indoors. Completed on Earth Day and staying true to the Garden’s mission to “preserve and enrich life,” the new Spink Pavilion incorporates many sustainable features including energy saving light controls, energy efficient kitchen equipment, a water bottle filling station, and renewable mesquite flooring. During the renovation all construction waste was recycled. In the near future, the Garden plans to seek LEED certification of the upgraded event space. Spink Pavilion, originally known as the Flora Gate, was built by Garden founder Henry Shaw to serve as the main entrance to the Garden. The pavilion is situated on the grand plaza overlooking the three large reflecting lily pools, the Milles Sculpture Garden and the world-renowned Climatron®. Display beds along all sides of the lily pools brighten the area with flowers, including tulips, pansies, and unusual summer annuals. Contact Catering St. Louis at (314) 961-7588 for additional information or to book a private event. The Missouri Botanical Garden is located at 4344 Shaw Blvd. in south St. Louis, accessible from Interstate 44 at the Vandeventer exit and from Interstate 64 at the Kingshighway North & South exit.

Meramec Caverns offers Lantern Tours Meramec Caverns again presents Lantern Tours through the world-famous show cave every Friday and Saturday evening in June. Tours begin at 7:30 p.m. with an introduction to the aweinspiring beauty of the cave. Then each visitor is equipped with an aged, hand-held electric lantern.  “There’s something about the ca ve b ei ng l it with lanterns,” said Erica Turilli, educational director at Meramec Caverns. “It gives you a sense of mystery and discovery.” During the 80-minute Lantern To u r, m a n y m y s t e r i e s a n d f o l k l o re a re told by a variety of characters. The historic characters portrayed include an Osage Native American who tells about Indians of Missouri; a Civil War soldier covering how the cave was mined to manufacture gunpowder; and the infamous outlaw Jesse James. The highlight of the tour is the Stage Curtain, a 70-foot tall, 60-foot wide and 35-foot deep vertical dripstone. “You hear dripping water, but only see a portion of the curtain a s y o u e n t e r t h e ro o m , ” s a i d Turilli. “It’s only when you get closer and can illuminate it with the lantern do you see the height

and breadth of the curtain.  Then we hear a gasp.” Starting only in 2007, the L a n t e r n To u r s h a v e q u i c k l y become a much-anticipated

specialty tour.  Visitors travel from all over the Midwest to see the caverns this way. To u r s a r e s c h e d u l e d v i a re s e r v a t i o n b y c a l l i n g 1 - 8 0 0 -

How to. . .

Choose a heating and cooling specialist It’s all about efficiency

Geothermal energy is recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency as the most energy efficient system on the market. Installation of a geothermal system is the equivalent of planting 750 trees or taking two cars off the road.

An old, inefficient heating and air conditioning system adds to your monthly costs. Air conditioners are rated on a seasonal energy efficiency ration or (SEER). The higher the SEER rate, the more efficient the unit is. Older equipment installed before 1990 can have a SEER rating of only nine or 10. The minimal SEER rating that is permitted to be sold now is 13. • What is the most efficient type of system to use? Geothermal energy is recognized by the Environmental Protection Agency as the most energy efficient system on the market. Installation of a geothermal system is the equivalent of planting 750 trees or taking two cars off the road. • How does geothermal energy work? Think of your lawn as a constant, renewable source of heating, cooling and water heating for your home. The earth absorbs almost 50 percent of all solar energy and remains nearly constant. Working with an underground loop system, geothermal heating and cooling systems utilize this constant temperature to exchange energy between your home and the earth as needed for heating and cooling. It’s environmentally friendly. In the winter, heat from the earth is carried to the geothermal unit. In the summer, the system expels heat from your home into the cooler earth via the loop system. As far as safety issues are concerned, there are no flames, no fumes, no flues, and no threats of carbon monoxide. It’s safe...no combustible gas! There are several loop configurations available. They can either be vertical, horizontal, or submerged in a nearby pond or lake. A water well can be used in many cases. Your energy dealer can help you determine the

type of loop best suited for your property. Geothermal energy is designed to operate quietly. There is no outdoor unit to disturb your landscaping. This is a flexible system to fit any home whether it’s new construction or an existing structure, large or small. Geothermal energy can be used with an all electric system or a dual fuel gas and electric system. Using a geothermal system, a typical home can save up to 60 percent over a conventional system...the lowest operating cost available. Currently household energy consumption is responsible for nearly 20 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. Geothermal technology can provide a viable and cost effective solution to reduce this environmental hazard. • If I don’t have room in my yard to place a loop, what else can I do?A dual fuel system using a high efficiency gas furnace with an air to air heat pump is a good choice. • Why would I want a dual fuel system? Consider the economic balance point. This is the point at which it is most economical to use electric energy and the point at which it is most economical to switch to gas. This is based upon the rise and fall of electric and gas energy rates. • What are other points I should discuss with my heating and cooling contractor? Be sure your contractor is well trained and experienced. Request a load calculation to determine the equipment size your home will require. Ask the contractor to inspect ductwork for leaks, incomplete connections and compatibility with the rest of your system. Leaks should be fixed using a quality duct sealant. In some cases, ducts might need to be modified to ensure proper supply and return airflow.

The current stimulus package allows a tax credit of 30 percent of the purchase price of geothermal energy.

How to. . .

Know what to do when buying a car

Research is key There are endless resources for you to research vehicles, from trade publications, the internet to your Uncle Joe.

Buying a car can make people nervous. It’s scary out there with all the screaming and yelling from all of the car dealers on radio, T.V., internet and print media. Zero money down …zero percent financing…thousands for your trade...shut up already! How can you sift through all of this clutter and make a decision that is right for you. If you remember nothing else from this article, remember this: nothing else matters until you to find a vehicle that satisfies all of your needs, wants and desires. Price, payment, down payment, trade-in value, or credit rating mean absolutely nothing if you are not in love with the vehicle you buy. Do you really care what the financing is on a vehicle that you have no desire to buy? Come on now! You have to determine the most important things that must be met by your purchase. Think about how the vehicle will be used, i.e. do you want a truck, a car or a sport utility. Who will be driving the vehicle, you, your spouse, your child, maybe your mother–in-law, whoever. Is safety paramount or is speed and agility what you desire? Narrow down your search and then find vehicles that fit your needs, wants and desires. There are endless resources for you to research vehicles, from trade publications, the internet, or your Uncle Joe. There is nothing better than the old fashioned way of visiting a dealership that you know, like, and trust. Hook up with a knowledgeable sales consultant and get a no obligation professional presentation. Yes, I said it a no obligation professional presentation. It costs you nothing to look. Most dealerships spend a great deal of time, effort, and money training their sales consultants about the vehicles they sell. Take advantage of this. If you are not satisfied with the

level of professionalism and knowledge of the consultant you happen to get, politely ask for someone else! By going to the dealership, you get all of the information in one central place! A picture or a description cannot hold a candle to actually feeling, touching and experiencing the real thing. No matter how awesome the web site, with 360 degree views, or how glossy the photos, airbrushed in the most brilliant colors, or how vivid the descriptions, Rich Corinthian Leather comes to mind, nothing beats the real thing where you can touch, feel and experience the vehicle live and lively. You can fiddle with the buttons, sit in the seat, learn about the unparalleled technology that today’s vehicles are chock full of! Find out in real life whether the vehicle fits your needs wants and desires. Going to a dealership takes time and effort but nothing that is worthwhile is easy. You will know and like your vehicle better and it will serve you the way you want it to. A vehicle purchase is in most cases the second largest purchase, second only to your house, you will make in your lifetime and the purchase decision should not be made without hands on experience at a dealership you know, like, and trust.

Going to a dealership takes time and effort but nothing that is worthwhile is easy.

How to. . . It’s more than just a mower Consider other task possibilities for your core tasks such as: • Light hauling such as mulch or dirt. • Heaving hauling for larger loads of rocks. • Tilling/Plowing that tomato garden. • Fertilizing/Seeding the lawn or garden. • Grading your driveway. • Shrub removal. • Handling snow. • Tending to animals.

Choose a lawn mower

Whether you choose a manual or riding mower, make sure the equipment fits your needs. There are many considerations when purchasing the right lawn mower. Answering some simple questions first to evaluate your particular needs may make your choices easier to manage. Lawn mowers come in such a variety of sizes, types, and price ranges that you should do some careful research before purchasing one. There are a whole range of things to consider, such as the kind and size of your lawn, what you can afford, how long the lawn mower will last, and even your mechanical abilities because all lawn mowers need some maintenance. The best way to begin your research is by taking a careful look at your lawn. If you are replacing your old mower, you probably already have a good idea of what will work for you. If you have just moved into a home, you need to know how many square feet of lawn you have. Do you have a lot or one or more acres to mow? This is important because recommendations for various mowers are partially based on lawn size. Take these steps when you are preparing to purchase a lawnmower:

preferable to a side bag for use around fences, trees and other obstacles. Side discharge—clippings are dispersed back onto the lawn. Use if you have a few obstacles to deal with or to cut high grass. Riding lawn equipment for light duty with engine horsepower ranging from 10 to 25 HP is good for mowing grass, light grading, tilling and hauling smaller loads. Safety. Safety should be a critical factor in your purchasing decision. What systems can you rely on to keep you and others safe? There are rollover protective structures for larger equipment, operator presence system so that if you dismount your riding mower it will shut off. There are color coded levers on some units and safety interlock systems. There are some very well designed and safe products available. Remember, no matter which type of lawn mower you choose, be sure it has an automatic shutoff if it tips over, the handle is disengaged or you dismount it automatically shuts off. Service and Maintenance

Lawn mowers come in such a variety of sizes, types and price ranges that you should do some careful research before purchasing one.

• Carefully walk around your lawn. Is it smooth? Does it have shady spots that are always wet? Does it have a problem with surface roots from a tree? What kind of of obstacles are on the lawn? Planter boxes, trees, bushes, patios, walls, and other obstacles can make maneuverability a very important factor. Is your lawn level, or is it on a slope? Since it is usually difficult to push a mower uphill, a selfpropelled lawn mower may be the most prudent choice for a sloping lawn.

• Take a realistic look at yourself. Do you really enjoy working in the yard? If not, you will probably hire a lawn service in a month or two. If you do enjoy working in the yard, will you also feel comfortable cleaning the air filter, changing the oil, and checking spark plugs? A good quality mower will last for many years if it is maintained properly. A poorly maintained mower will soon have to be replaced. • The next thing to consider is your budget. What can you realistically afford? How long will you live in this home? Will you need your mower in two years? Five years? Once you have answered these basic questions, you can begin your research. Walk behind mowers allow you to get some exercise as you mow. Do you prefer to use a self-propelled mower? What is your price range? What kind of transmission will you need? Manual or automatic? Automatic transmissions provide a much greater east-of-use and efficiency. Do you have the strength to pull the cord to start your mower or do you need an automatic starter? Perhaps you have not even thought about the following points.

What is included in your maintenance agreement and do you have one? Can you get service from the dealer after you buy your mower? It’s not always easy to get your mower annual maintenance. Maintaining your equipment leads to hassle free ownership, better resale value and less headaches in general.

Don’t have a truck? Some dealers offer mobile maintenance service. Service should include the following: • Change engine oil and filter. • Change air filter and -cleaner. • Change spark plugs. • Change fuel filter. • Change transmission oil and filter. • Change engine coolant. • Change hydraulic filter. • Sharpen mower blades. •  Check safety systems. • Check tire pressure and check mower desk level. •  Check/tighten hardware. • Clean engine, battery, radiator and mower. • Lubricate tractor and mower. • Check belts and mower adjustments.

Consider the versatility of the equipment. Besides mowing and perfecting the yard and lawn, what other tasks will you or would you like to use your mower to perform? Consider other task possibilities for your core tasks such as: • Light hauling such as mulch or dirt. • Heaving hauling for larger loads or rocks. • Tilling/Plowing that tomato garden. • Fertilizing/Seeding the lawn or garden. • Grading your driveway. • Shrub removal. • Handling snow. • Tending to animals. • Maintaining pastures and fields. Mulching—cuts grass clippings into fine pieces that can help fertilize your lawn. No bagging of clippings is required. Rear bagger—collects clippings for an immaculate lawn. A rear bag is

A bit of Tuscany in southern Illinois By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge

Back on the winding country roads of southern Illinois, just outside of Marion, lies a treasure from the Shawnee Hills Illinois Wine Trail. Blue Sky Vineyard is in Makanda at 3150 South. Rocky Comfort Road, just 15 miles southeast of Carbondale and about the same in the opposite direction from Marion. After driving through some of the most beautiful untouched forestry, most of which forms a natural atrium over the country roads, the trees will part and there will be a piece of Tuscany right before your eyes. You will have to remind yourself that you are not in Italy, but still in southern Illinois when you enter the beautiful entrance gates of Blue Sky Vineyard. Once you top the hill, you will be amazed at the Tuscan-styled villa and the flowing valleys and vineyards that surround it. Once inside, the terra cotta walls, blue, white and yellow tiled imagery and solid-wood weighted

“castle” doors will take you to a time and place you may have never experienced before. T h e v i n e y a rd i s o p e n y e a r round, seven days a week. Guests can sample the amazing, awardwinning wine selections, including their specialty, “White Sangria,” a refreshing white wine with a perfect blend of fruit. Awardwinning winemaker, Karen Hand, has created a number of fantastic selections from the southern Illinois grown fruit. Karen has earned both the Grape Growers and Vintners Association’s “Vintner of the Year” award. The winery offers seating both inside and out. Some of the outside seating is shaded and some is out under the “Tuscan” sky so you can enjoy the sun or the stars, which ever you choose. In the outside seating area, you can enjoy live music, especially during “Sunday’s in the Park.” Inside, there are number of tables

to sit and relax, or you may enjoy being bar side, making it easier to “taste” a number of selections. If you are hungry, they offer a large food selection for guests. Bread and olive oil: fresh hearty baked bread with a house blend seasoned olive oil dipping sauce. Sandwiches: chicken salad on croissant – all white meat chicken b re a s t i n a c re a m y d re s s i n g served on a flaky croissant. Ham and cheese on rye – deli ham and cheese toasted on fresh rye bread. Hoagie – fresh hoagie style bread piled high with ham, turkey, salami, and cheese. Pulled pork on croissant – melt in your mouth tender pulled pork served on our flaky croissant and served with your choice of Pappy LeDeaux’s incredible BBQ sauce. Purchase a bottle of your favorite sauce to take home. Pizza: crisp and cheesy, 12” thin and crispy pizza crust smothered in a tangy tomato sauce and covered with your choice of

cheese, pepperoni, and/or sausage. Desserts: ice cream – delicious soft serve ice cream in three f l a v o r s , ( c o o k i e s a n d c re a m , chocolate fudge, or caramel pecan and pralines), drizzled in chocolate. Last but not least, New York style cheese cake – a classic rich and creamy cheese cake made in the traditional New York style. If you are looking for a romantic getaway, Blue Sky Vineyards also offers a bed and breakfast. “The winery, overlooking our vineyard, houses two suites and is modeled after a 400-year-old Tuscan villa. Each suite is furnished with antiques, but also contains all of the modern conveniences of today’s living,” explains the bed and breakfast brochure. The suites are available year round, so enjoy a relaxing getaway while sipping a glass of wine on the patio or a romantic evening in the suite. For more information about Blue Sky Vineyards or to check out the selections at the online store, visit www.blueskyvineyard.com. Or you can call 618-995-WINE (9463).

EGYPTIAn Hills Resort When you’re looking to get away from it all

By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Lake Egypt (also called Lake of Egypt) is a beautiful lake. It is located about six miles south of Marion and extends over approximately 2,300 acres. The lake is owned by Southern Illinois Power Cooperative (SIPC). SIPC created the reservoir in 1962 by damming the south fork of the Saline River. This allowed them to supply cooling water for a coalburning power plant. The water stays at a warmer temperature throughout most of the year, making the fishing fantastic. Since this is a privately owned lake, there are a number of beautiful homes and cabins along the 90 miles of shoreline, but plenty of gorgeous forestry, which for the most part is part of the Shawnee National Forest. Once you see the beauty of this area, you will certainly want to stay for a while. One of the nicest resorts in the southern Illinois lakes area is right on Lake Egypt, Egyptian Hills Resort. Egyptian Hills Resort is a familyoriented getaway that has a number of “cabins” all of which have some kind of lake view. A majority of the cabins are owned by families, but there are plenty available for rent for a night, a week, several weeks or even months. Egyptian Hills Resort has been in its current location for many years, but in the past five years has seen a complete facelift due to the hard work of Jody and Kendra Perrotto and their entire extended family. Their brother-in-law, Judd, is a partner and is also one of the reasons the resort is now a first class place to stay. The Perrottos moved back to the region, having grown up in the area and then moved all over the country for their careers. They decided to retire to Lake Egypt to be closer to their parents and other family members. They were made aware of the availability of a dilapidated marina

with cabins, which was directly across the lake where they had just moved to. It was Jody’s first thought that this was not of any interest to him. But after a friend who was knowledgeable in real estate convinced him that if Jody didn’t buy it, he would, Jody had second thoughts. After a family discussion, the purchase was made and the hard work began. The family worked hard to literally mine a huge amount of slate rock from a pond area and built a waterfall that runs from the top of the property down to the lake. They have made a number of beautiful walking paths and edged the landscaping with this rock also. The other big project was all new cabins. These cabins are all cedar, have decks and beautiful views of the lake. They built a community pavilion, which plays host to live music on the weekends (maybe it will be the local “singing lawyers” or some bluegrass). There is a large fire circle that is lit most weekend nights and even at times during the week, and is open to anyone who wants to stop by. The marina itself has a gas dock where boats can easily pull right in to full gas service and then take a short walk up to the store that has just about anything you could possibly need. Whether it is ice, beer, fishing gear, boat needs, or even a life jacket for your pooch, you will find it at the store. There is a big selection of food and beverages, including homemade

pizza that will knock your socks, or at least your taste buds, clean off. Don’t forget to try some of the Starbuck’s coffee, latte, cappacino or expresso while you are there or have an ice cream sundae if you wish. Do not be surprised if you are greeted by a four-legged, furry family member upon your arrival to the marina. Sister golden retrievers, Mollie and Seabiscuit, keep watch not only on the arrivals to give a friendly welcome, but can be found many times wading at the boat launching ramp watching the water for any sign of a fish – which they rarely are ever successful at catching. Or maybe it will be Sampson, Benji, Betsy or Lilly wagging a welcome to make you feel right at home. If you too would like to bring your pet, just make mention when you book your stay and they will put you in a pet friendly cabin. All cabins are non-smoking, but you may smoke outside. Linens,

kitchen cookware, towels, cable TV and Înternet access provided. The rest, you will need to provide. There are three different types of cabins, “Cabin 8,” “Chalet,” and “Double Chalet.” “Cabin 8” has one bedroom with a queen bed and bunk set, a kitchenette, range top, microwave and fridge, living room, a bath, large deck and grill. It sleeps up to four and includes one boat dock. “Chalet” has a full bedroom and two loft bedrooms, a full kitchen, a bathroom, living room, large deck and a grill. Sleeps six and includes a boat dock. “Double Chalet” has two full bedrooms; two loft bedrooms, full kitchen, dining room, two baths, large living room with pull out sleeper, and an extra large deck with grill. Sleeps up to 10 and includes two boat docks. The prices start around $150 and

go up, per night, but there are a number of packages, so call for rates. There are even vacation packages that offer a number of weekly options and weekend options, for a reasonable monthly payment. Surrounding the Lake Egypt area is the Shawnee National Forest, which offers hiking, biking, horseback riding, lakes, canoeing, camping and wineries. If the lake doesn’t offer enough to keep you busy, there are many options surrounding it. The Perrotto family are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and they want you to feel like you are family too. “This is an extremely family friendly resort and we want you to experience that family feel when you visit,” said Jody. “Our main thing is to offer a place for people who own boats or want to rent a boat, but don’t have a lake house. This is fantastic, it really is a boater’s paradise.” W h e t h e r y o u h a v e a l re a d y experienced Lake Egypt or need to make plans to get there, remember that you won’t find a nicer place with a family feel than at Egyptian Hills Resort – and remember to tell them Debbie, at The Edge, sent you! Make sure to tell Mollie and Seabiscuit hello. For see more photos of the cabins or read more about the resort, visit www.egyptianhillsresort.com. For reservations, call 618-996-3449 or 618407-1240.

Travel briefs State parks, sites among most endangered in U.S. WASHINGTON (AP) — When chunks of plaster began falling from the ceiling of the national cathedral of African Methodism last year, one of Washington’s oldest black congregations nearly had to abandon its sanctuary. Instead, the people of Metropolitan A.M.E. Church — where funerals were held for member Frederick Douglass and, a century later, for Rosa Parks — have begun emergency repairs. They brought in a scaffolding with wood planks to block falling debris. Now they worship with yellow construction lights strung overhead. On Wednesday, the church was among the sites named America’s 11 Most Endangered Historic Places because it needs $11 million in critical repairs. Also, for the first time, one spot on the list was reserved for all of the state parks and state-owned historic places in the country — a nod to widespread budget cuts affecting such sites. Metropolitan A.M.E., an 1886 red brick Victorian Gothic-style church, was once among the largest integrated meeting halls in the segregated nation’s capital. It deterioriated over time, suffering cracks and water damage as its residential neighborhood a few blocks from the White House was swallowed by downtown development. “It’s an expense the congregation by itself simply cannot afford,” said Richard Moe, president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “We all need to help.” State-owned properties are also among those listed as needing help, as about 30 cash-strapped states turn out the lights on as many as 400 sites and slash their budgets. New York state alone is shutting down dozens of parks and sites, including abolitionist John Brown’s farm where he is buried near Lake Placid. It has been open to the public since 1895. Vandals could cause costly damage at such sites if states turn off the heat and water and abandon aging structures, Moe said.

“This is really an alarm bell to call on Americans to realize the places they love are in trouble,” he said. Some states have cut their budgets for state parks and sites by as much as 75 percent in recent years, he said, threatening sites from New Jersey to Arizona. The group is urging states to follow Ohio’s example by pursuing public-private partnerships to keep sites open with fewer tax dollars. Among the most endangered sites on the 2010 list is one of the last surviving Negro League ballparks, Hinchliffe Stadium in Paterson, N.J. The 10,000-seat Art Deco stadium was home to the New York Black Yankees. In Lincoln, Neb., the Industrial Arts Building could meet the wrecking ball. And in the Silicon Valley, the oldest structure in Palo Alto, an 1844 adobe home built by one of the original Hispanic residents of San Francisco sits abandoned and could be demolished. The Juana Briones House recalls California’s Spanish and Mexican heritage.

In addition to the church, the state park and historic sites, the ballpark, the adobe home, and the Industrial Arts Building, other endangered sites on the National Trust list are: — Black Mountain in Harlan County, Ky. The historic mining towns of Benham and Lynch have built up heritage tourism that is now threatened by possible new deep mining permits around Black Mountain. — Merritt Parkway in Fairfield County, Conn. The National Trust said Connecticut has neglected maintenance on the scenic roadway with its decorative bridges and landscaping. — Pagat in Yigo, Guam. A large military buildup in the westernmost U.S. territory is threatening remnants of the ancient settlement of Pagat, home to the Chamorro people. — Saugatuck Dunes in Saugatuck, Mich. About 2,500 acres of natural sand dunes and wetlands along Lake Michigan are threatened by a proposed 400-acre development of homes, hotels, restaurants and

shops. — Threefoot Building in Meridian, Miss. A 16-story Art Deco building lavishly decorated but vacant since 2000 could face demolition after the city has been unable to deliver financing to help a developer restore the 80-year-old structure. — Wilderness Battlefield in Virginia. Near the site where Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant first met in one of the bloodiest Civil War battles, Wal-Mart Stores Inc. intends to build a Supercenter. Preservationists are fighting the plan in court, saying it will attract more sprawling development within the battlefield boundaries.

Airlines aim sales at impulsive, Twitter types NEW YORK (AP) — Fly to the Bahamas today for $10. Take a trip to Los Angeles tomorrow for $20. While airfares generally are higher

these days, last-minute sales that ask you to fly at a moment’s notice are popping up everywhere. Why do airlines launch a sale that asks people to travel the next day or fly on off-days like a Monday or Tuesday? The biggest reason boils down to simple supply and demand: More people are flying, so the airlines don’t need to launch big sales on more popular days. That’s especially true with the summer travel season approaching. But there’s more to it. Here’s a look at why the airlines offer lastminute sales and how best to take advantage. First waves of last minute Last-minute fare sales are here to stay, at least for summer, according to Rick Seaney or FareCompare. com. Here’s why: Facebook and Twitter. These “fly on a moment’s notice” sales are geared toward the instant communication of social media sites, which are rapidly overshadowing e-mail as an alert system.

Family

Mother and daughter team up Sunwoos look to make mark in women’s fashion world By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Most women love fashion and love clothes. The trick is to find something that fits your body style and helps you to look your best. Choosing key base pieces – such as a great pair of slacks or skirt, a great blouse, and then accessorize with different jackets, blazers, sweaters, scarves, jewelry, etc., – to create a good wardrobe out of key pieces. The mother-daughter team behind Clara S. and Clara Sunwoo are ready to take on the mainstream fashion world with their luxurious yet functional women’s apparel. The duo are great at creating signature pieces that are either great base pieces or fantastic accessory pieces that are sure to help accentuate lots of different body types and help women to create outstanding wardrobes. Clara S. and Clara Sunwoo is an up-and-coming fashion label, that while relatively unknown to the media, is in high demand by its loyal buyers and the more than 3,000 boutiques that stock them. Each piece is made to become a favorite part of every outfit. After raiding one another’s closets for years the mother-daughter team decided to design their own line of apparel that would reflect both their generational tastes as well as the timeless classics. What they’ve realized and taken advantage of in their clothing, is that modern women are independent, youthful, unafraid, mothers, entrepreneurs, and just plain savvy. Together, their couture designs have been able to bridge a generational gap by adding an edge to timeless fashion that all women can enjoy. We all know that although being fashionable is crucial, comfort is key. The designing pair have an understanding of design and fit and have created a comfortable collection that is a delight to wear and appeals to the contemporary woman as well as the more

traditional one. The collection encourages women to create their own unique stories by mixing and matching novelty “pieces” with their own wardrobe, allowing them to assemble their very own fashionable look that fits their personal tastes. Every woman has a love for that feel of luxury, but who wants to pay exorbitant prices? Clara S. and Clara Sunwoo collections are made from quality materials for that high end look and feel that is well within the fashion conscious woman’s budget. Their clothing is known for its fabulous shimmers and washable stretch knits. For fall 2010, the mother and daughter design team captures the essence of new beginnings with innovation and glamour that embraces vibrant colors, textured fabrics and modern silhouettes. Experience colors that bring poetically nocturnal palettes in jet black, gunmetal gray, ink blue and deep purple completed by jeweled tone colors in fierce cobalt, darling fuchsia and cyprus green. Distressed razor cut stretch, mini ruffles, and lush velvet are some of the innovative fabrications incorporated into the collection. All of their collections are focused on providing the perfect fit that many couture clothing labels lack without a good tailor. Rather than fashion being relegated to the runway and its models, Clara S. and Clara Sunwoo is for the everyday woman that wants to look phenomenal. Jackets and tops are slightly shaped at the waistline for a slimming effect without clinging, and range in sizes from 4 to 18. Another factor that continually draws customers back for more is functionality. Not only is each article meant for every day use, but the materials are wrinkle free, hand washable, and retain their shape throughout every wash. They are the perfect way to travel in style. Products retail between $50 to $300. To view items in their collection, or shop their collection, visit www.clarasonline.com.

Allowing shoppers to take control NEW YORK (AP) — Can’t find the exact swimsuit you had in mind for summer? Design your own. Shoppers with exacting tastes can now customize an array of products, including dress shirts, handbags, jewelry and sneakers. Just how much creative control you get varies depending on the company. But prices often aren’t far off from premade items of similar quality. In some cases, what you pay is tied to how elaborate your design gets. The biggest surprise? Customized items are typically refundable, even if they were monogrammed. A look at some options. 1. Handbags: 1154 LILL Studio (www.1154lill.com) How it Works: The website lets shoppers pick from around 40 styles that include casual, dressy, travel and work bags. Shoppers can pick from 150 or so fabrics; selections can be made for the body of the bag, lining, straps and pockets. Another option is a “Design a Bag”

kit, which includes a sample bag and fabric swatches. The idea is to let customers play around with designs before placing an order. Those who want to host a handbag party can schedule a representative to come by at no charge with sample bags and fabrics. There’s no requirement to buy, but the party host gets a discount on her purchases for that day. Orders arrive in three to four weeks. Cost: About $120 to $200 depending on the style. Wallets and other accessories are cheaper. Return Policy: Returns must be made within 45 days. Shipping costs aren’t refundable. Alternatives: If you like the styles of better known brands such as LeSportSac and TimBuk2, those companies also allow for similar customization. 2. Dress shirts: Blank Label (www. blank-label.com) How it Works: The site starts with

a basic men’s shirt, then lets shoppers tailor it to their tastes. After picking from about 50 different fabrics, shoppers make a series of choices about the collar, cuffs, pocket, shoulders, buttons and more. Monograms and labels can be added too. For sizing, there’s classic or slim fit. Customers are also asked to pick a body type, then enter height, weight and neck and sleeve measurements. Orders typically take three to four weeks to arrive. Cost: A basic shirt starts at $45. But the price can go as high as $140 or more depending on the design. For example, it costs $2 extra for a single front pocket and $6 extra for an inner collar lining. Monograms cost $6. Return Policy: Shirts must be returned in the condition they arrived within 30 days. Shipping costs aren’t refundable. Alternative: Lands’ End also lets shoppers design men’s dress shirts, with many of the same design

specifications. 3. Jewelry: Zales (www.zales.com) How it Works: A wide variety of pendants, bracelets and other jewelry can be customized or engraved. This time of year, however, parents might be interested in rings for high school graduates. The rings can be customized with the graduation year, mascot and an activity. For the stone, there are 15 colors and six styles to choose from. The inside of the ring can be engraved with up to 18 characters and spaces. Rings bearing college names aren’t available, because Zales doesn’t have the necessary licensing rights. Cost: Rings range from $79 to $779. Most are under $400, however. Return Policy: Returns must be made via mail within 100 days. Shipping charges are not refundable. Alternative: For fine jewelry with precious stones, check out online jeweler Blue Nile. 4. Sneakers: Nike (www.nikeid. com)

How it Works: The company has let shoppers design sneakers for more than a decade now. But the level of customization was greatly expanded in the last year. Beyond design, shoppers can now tailor sneakers for comfort and performance as well. For example, runners can opt for firmer or softer cushioning, or pick soles for roads or trails. Of course, you can also specify the colors you want for various parts of the shoe, including the Nike swoosh logo. If you’re in New York City, you can also make an appointment at select Nike stores for help designing your sneakers. Orders are delivered within four weeks. Cost: Prices range from about $100 to $300 depending on the sneaker. Return Policy: Returns must be made within 30 days after the order is received. Alternative: Converse, owned by Nike, also lets shoppers design their own sneakers.

Music Blueberry Hill to host Twangfest 2010 By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge As part of what has become a St. Louis tradition, Twangfest 2010 is soon to be under way. The mission of Twangfest is to preserve and promote the unique tradition and culture of Americana music. Twangfest works toward this goal primarily by organizing an annual multiple-day event that encourages, promotes and supports the development, performance and enjoyment of Americana music outside the profit-oriented institutional framework of the recording industry. What is Americana Music? Americana is a unique musical form, blending traditional and contemporary elements of American folk and popular music into new combinations that rearticulate older forms such as Western Swing, Rhythm and Blues, Appalachian mountain music, bluegrass, honky-tonk, polka, and rock-abilly, in terms of present-day social and artistic concerns. Primarily supported by grassroots initiatives and the efforts of its practitioners, Americana is a recognized and influential genre of contemporary popular music, although not one that is central to the profit-motivated categories generally promoted by the recording industry. Twangfest is an annual multipleday nonprofit festival featuring approximately 15 acts. The festival is hosted each June with performances at area venues in St. Louis. Legendary Nashville rock band Jason & The Scorchers, who won the Lifetime Achievement Award at

For The Edge

Jason & the Scorchers the Americana Music Conference in 2008, is one of the featured acts at Twangfest 2010. They are scheduled to appear at Blueberry Hill’s Duck Room, located in the Delmar Loop in downtown St. Louis on Saturday, June 12, at 8 p.m. A single day ticket for the event will be $20. Jason & the Scorchers returned Feb. 23 with their first album of

new material since 1996, “Halcyon Times.” With its release, Jason & The Scorchers have accomplished an extremely rare feat – deep into their career, they have made a rock ‘n’ roll record every bit as dynamic and mind-blowing as their vintage work. Very few rock bands can make this claim. Jason & The Scorchers can, they should, and they do. Indeed,

“Halcyon Times” is a true career record. The group has a huge fan base and St. Louis hosts a large portion. In addition to founding members Jason Ringenberg and Warner E. Hodges, “Halcyon Times,” the groups newest release, marks the band’s first recording with its muscular new rhythm section of

bassist Al Collins (Stacie Collins) and young Swedish drummer Pontus Snibb (Bonafide, Snibb). In addition, the album was co-produced by Brad Jones (Chuck Prophet, Over the Rhine, Tim Easton, Hayes Carll, Justin To w n e s E a r l e ) a n d f e a t u r e s special guest contributions from Dan Baird of Homemade Sin, G i n g e r f ro m T h e Wi l d h e a r t s , and Tommy Womack. “Halcyon Times” also contains a 24-page booklet with extensive photos, lyrics, and liner notes from each member of the band as well as the guest players on the record. “ H a l c y o n Ti m e s ” s h o w s Jason & The Scorchers are s t i l l e x p a n d i n g t h e i r c re a t i v e envelope, still in command of their legacy.

Band Bio: Creative Diversion By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Creative Diversion, a.k.a. Vendetta Sonata is an original and experimental progressive/hard rock band from St. Louis, Mo. The band was established in 2005 by Jonathan Baker. After years of long searching, he finally found the proper musicians to fit the band (but are currently seeking a drummer and keyboard player). The sound is influenced by many styles of music which includes: classic rock, blues, hard rock, classical and metal. Consisting of unique compositions, ripping guitar solos, hard grooving bass and drums and powerful vocals. Providing music that is not only easy to move to but dreamy and hypnotic. Creative Diversion’s goal like many bands is to become a world wide touring band.The difference is they are some of the most hard working and dedicated musicians and will put forth all the work that is needed to achieve their goals without letting anything or anyone get in the way. Upcoming dates: June 13, 10 a.m., Pam’s Chicago Style Hot Dogs, St. Louis, Mo. June 25, 6 p.m., Pam’s Chicago Style Hot Dogs, St. Louis, Mo.

Sixty-four current members of the YO and three alumni will spend four days in Manhattan visiting several New York music landmarks. YO musicians will tour two of the city’s famed performing arts institutions: Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. The young musicians will also visit three of the country’s top music schools: The Juilliard School, Manhattan School of Music, and Mannes College. “The Youth Orchestra trip to New York will give members a new and unique performing experience in a wonderful space, introduce them first hand to some of New York’s musical institutions, and offer them a tour experience based on the professional operations’ procedures of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra.” says YO Manager Peggy Neilson. As part of the tour, YO members will also attend a New York

Philharmonic concert on June 5. The following day, the string, woodwind, brass, and percussion sections will rehearse and be coached by members of the Philharmonic.  YO members and their families have been raising funds to cover tour costs. Anyone interested in making donations in support of the tour may contact Peggy Neilson at 314-286-4407 or peggyn@slso.org.

People planner SIUE alum to display work on campus Millions of people have seen the work of Gib Singleton, a Southern Illinois University Edwardsville graduate who may be best known for creating the crucifix atop the crosier of the late John Paul II during his time as Pope and now carried by Pope Benedict XVI.  Singleton’s sculpture inspires in seemingly diverse locations, ranging from the Vatican Museum to the Cowboy Hall of Fame, and from the Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Authority to private collections around the world. For the first time, 28 of the artist’s works—representing religious, western, and contemporary subjects—will be on display at his alma mater in the exhibit, From the Earth, from Thursday, May 13th, through Sunday, June 27th in SIUE’s Morris University Center Gallery. A native Missourian, Singleton was raised in Granite City and attended SIU Carbondale before enrolling at SIUE. He attended classes at what was then known as the Alton Residence Center and then at Edwardsville when the main campus opened in 1965. He graduated two years later and went on to study at the Art Institute of Chicago. Singleon’s efforts earned him a Fulbright Scholarship to study at the Accademia di Bella Arti in Florence, Italy. While there, he was made part of the team responsible for the restoration of Michelangelo’s Pieta, after it was damaged by a vandal in1972.  Now 74, Singleton lives and works in Santa Fe, NM, where much of his art is on display at Galerie Zűger, and he just completed life-size representations of the 14 Stations of the Cross, which will be loaned to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe for the next 25 years. For more information on the exhibit or the artist, visit the website: www.siue.edu/alumni, or contact Steve Jankowski, director of Alumni Affairs, (618) 650-2346. The exhibit is being presented through a partnership of the SIUE Alumni Association, the SIUE Meridian Society, the SIUE Museum, the Morris University Center, SIUE Friends of Art, the Edwardsville Arts Council, and the Jacoby Arts Center in Alton.

Kemper Museum puts photography in focus Over the last several years, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum has built an exceptional collection of works by an international array of contemporary artists who both examine and expand the parameters of traditional photography. For these artists, photography is not a single, rigidly defined discipline or practice, but a versatile medium

June 3, 2010

that can be filtered through a wide range of artistic processes and used to address a wide range of aesthetic questions and concerns. From May 7 through July 26, the Kemper Art Museum will showcase this collection in Focus on Photography: Recent Acquisitions. Organized by assistant curator Karen Butler, the exhibition will feature more than 100 pieces by more than 20 artists, ranging from historical figures who helped define early photographic standards to contemporary photographers working within what art historian George Baker has termed “photography’s expanded field.” Taken together, these artists offer a lens through which to address the question: What is photography today? The earliest works on view a re ro o t e d i n p h o t o g r a p h y ’ s documentary tradition. Edward C u r t i s s o u g h t t o re c o rd a n d preserve the culture of disappearing Native American tribes, yet he also was deeply influenced by aesthetic conventions — the portrait, the pastoral landscape — borrowed from traditions of painting. This dichotomy reflects the complex n a t u re o f e a r l y 2 0 t h - c e n t u r y photography, which frequently negotiated between scientific instrument and artistic endeavor. Conversely, in artfully staged portraits such as Picasso, Cannes (1955), Lucien Clergue consciously attempted to supplant the painted portrait with a photographic image capturing the individual’s psychological essence. The work of artists such as Andy Warhol and Louise Lawler would further transform our understanding of the photographic image, radically undermining it’s apparent promise of objective knowledge or truth. Warhol, who lived life both through and for the camera, is represented by a large group of working Polaroids and black-and-white snapshots, the latter of which portray personal and public activities but, paradoxically, reveal very little about Warhol himself. Lawler, meanwhile, is represented by Not Yet Titled (2004/05), a recent example from a long line of photographs that investigate the life of artworks after they leave the studio and enter the public domain. These figures set the stage for a vast array of artists whose varied forms of critical engagement define the state of photography today. In Ecrivain public / Public letter writer, Rafaèle Decarpigny (2007), Sophie Calle uses photography to explore questions of subjectivity and identity, creating an unconventional portrait out of the response of one woman, a professional letter writer, to an upsetting email that Calle received from a boyfriend. Questions of identity also inform Christian Jankowski’s series Poster Sale (2005), which depicts 40 Washington University students posing with images they had selected to decorate their dorm rooms, thus allowing viewers to glimpse the ways popular culture

contributes to the construction of individuality. In Untitled (Pollock/Titian) #4 (1984/2005), Andrea Fraser deploys photography as a form of institutional critique b y j u x t a p o s i n g a n d t h e n re photographing slides of wellknown paintings by two renowned male artists. Wolfgang

Ti l l m a n s , i n Wa l d ( B r i o l I I ) (2008), addresses the issue of photographic representation head-on by photocopying his own photograph, of a man walking through a forest, rendering it dark, flat and blurry. Tillmans then scanned, enlarged and printed the photocopy again, this time as a singular image, thus placing it

somewhere between a photograph and a unique artwork. Rounding out the exhibition will be recently acquired works by Howard French, David Goldblatt, Doug Hall, Ulrike Kuschel, Sharon L o c k h a r t , A l e n M a c We e n e y, Abelardo Morell, Simon Nieweg, George Rousse, Georgina Starr and John Stezaker.

Arts The home of the blues New exhibit traces the history of this musical genre By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Blues music has been at the heart of St. Louis for more than a century. The roots of the song “The St. Louis Blues” by W.C. Handy hailed from this area and were published in 1914. “The lyrics tell of a sophisticated woman from St. Louis, Missouri, who has stolen the affection of the singer ’s lover. The opening line, “I hate to see that evenin’ sun go down” may be one of the more recognizable lyrics in pop music, and set the tone for many subsequent blues songs.” This was the description given as the influence this song has had over the generations. This song has been performed by numerous musicians of all styles, from Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith to Glenn Miller and the Boston Pops Orchestra. The influence of the song was so deep to the area that even the pro hockey team took on the name as representative of the reflection of St. Louis. Currently on exhibit, The Sheldon Art Galleries presents “Legends of St. Louis Blues Music,” through Aug.28, 2010 in the History of Jazz Gallery. Gallery Hours are Tuesdays, noon to 8 p.m.; Wednesdays through Fridays, noon to 5 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and one hour prior to Sheldon performances and during intermission. Admission is free. For more information on the exhibition visit the galleries’ Web site at www. thesheldon.org/galleries.asp. The exhibition is made possible by Kenneth and Nancy Kranzberg, The Engelhardt Family Foundation and Steve and Andi Schankman. Organized by the Sheldon Art Galleries, the exhibition “Legends of St. Louis Blues Music” tells the story of the rich history of blues music in St. Louis through biographies on key musicians, illustrations by

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

“Iron Man 2”

Lots of things get blown up and torn apart in “Iron Man 2,” as you would expect from any self-respecting blockbuster kicking off the summer movie season. The magnitude of destruction far exceeds that of its predecessor and includes repeated instances of characters walking away from a massive fireball without looking back. ’Cause looking back is for wimps. But that’s not all that gets obliterated here. The substance of the original “Iron Man,” the brain and the soul that set it apart from the typical seasonal fare and made it one of the best films of 2008, also have been blown to bits. Tony Stark had purpose back then, and despite the outlandish fantasy of his Marvel Comics-inspired story, as a person he had a believable arc. Here, he’s purely arrogant once more, with some glimmers of mortality and daddy issues. And Robert Downey Jr., so irresistibly verbal and quick on his feet in the first film (and in pretty much every film he’s ever made), seems to be on autopilot. Sure, he’s got a way with a one-liner, and his comic timing is indisputable, but he’s done this songand-dance routine before and seems rather bored with it. Then again the character — and the sequel itself — are less defined this time. Narratively, “Iron Man 2” is a mess. Director Jon Favreau, working from a script by Justin Theroux, throws in too many subplots, too many characters. Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Don Cheadle and Samuel L. Jackson are among the crowded supporting cast. RATED: PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, and some language. RUNNING TIME: 124 min. 2-D only. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“Letters to Juliet”

The doomed heroine of “Romeo and Juliet” is the nominal inspiration for this unbearably predictable romance that would profane her name if it were not lifted a notch by the graceful, if inexplicable, presence of Vanessa Redgrave. The movie takes viewers on a road trip through the gorgeous Italian countryside, which at least makes it pretty to look at. But Amanda Seyfried and Redgrave are stranded along the romantic byways in this phony story. Director Gary Winick and screenwriter Jose Rivera pile on contrivances relating to letters from the lovelorn written to Juliet, including one composed half a century earlier that brings Seyfried and Redgrave together on a quest for a lost love. Every turn of the movie is obvious and expected, even insufferable (there will be more than a few groans when audiences see where the

June 3, 2010

climax takes place). Gael Garcia Bernal and Christopher Egan co-star. RATED: PG for brief rude behavior and sensual images, some language and incidental smoking. RUNNING TIME: 105 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.

“Robin Hood”

Darth Vader. Batman. Captain James T. Kirk. Now another legendary figure gets the origin-story treatment in Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood.” The world probably didn’t need another version of this famous tale, even though it arrives with outstanding production values and an impeccable pedigree. Besides Scott, the script comes from Oscar-winning “L.A. Confidential” writer Brian Helgeland, and the heavyweight cast is anchored by Russell Crowe as the title character and Cate Blanchett as Marian. (Solid supporting work comes from Mark Strong, William Hurt, Eileen Atkins, Matthew Macfadyen and the excellent Max von Sydow.) This Robin Hood is not a man in tights — he’s not even robbing from the rich and giving to the poor just yet — but rather an expert archer in the crusading army of King Richard the Lionheart (Danny Huston) at the turn of the 13th century. Working with “Gladiator” director Scott for the fifth time, Crowe is hulking and overly serious, and the same can be said of “Robin Hood” itself. With its sweeping scope and tangible grittiness, it does look great. But then the brawny battle scenes, which set this incarnation apart from its lilting and swashbuckling predecessors, are shot and edited in such a chaotic, choppy way, it’s nearly impossible to tell what’s happening. RATED: PG-13 for violence including intense sequences of warfare, and some sexual content. RUNNING TIME: 140 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Holy Rollers”

The film depicts a world the majority of us have never visited — the insular existence of Brooklyn’s Hasidic Jews — only to wind up following the same rise-and-fall formula we’ve seen countless times before. But it does allow Jesse Eisenberg to put a new spin on the brainy-but-sweetly-awkward shtick he’s perfected in movies like “The Squid and the Whale” and “Adventureland.” Here, it feels like he’s really acting — and he’s really a grown-up — for the first time. Inspired by the true story of Orthodox Jews who functioned as drug mules in the

late 1990s, smuggling a million Ecstasy pills into the United States from Europe, this first feature from director Kevin Asch offers some strong performances and a vivid sense of place with its synagogues and modest homes. Eisenberg stars as Sam Gold, a serious man with plans to marry, have children and become a rabbi. But he finds himself intrigued by the brash flashiness of his next-door neighbor, Yosef Zimmerman (Justin Bartha, the bachelor from “The Hangover”), and getting drawn into his smuggling ring. You can see the self-destruction coming from a mile away — long before Yosef gets in over his head with an Israeli drug cartel — in the script from Antonio Macia. And yet Yosef is charismatic and undeniably magnetic, for Sam and for us, so it’s hard not to get dragged along for this wild ride. RATED: R for drug content and language throughout, and brief sexual material. RUNNING TIME: 89 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“Shrek Forever After”

Given that this is the first film in the “Shrek” franchise in 3-D, it’s surprisingly flat — and we’re not just talking about the look of it. This fourth and allegedly final installment in the series is lifeless, joyless and woefully devoid of the upbeat energy that distinguished the earlier movies — well, at least the first two. If “Shrek the Third” from 2007 felt tired, “Shrek Forever After” is practically narcoleptic. Brief bursts of manic energy give way to long, heavy stretches that drag. Most of the hackneyed pop culture references of its predecessors are gone, mercifully, but so is the fun. This time, the big, bad ogre (voiced as always by Mike Myers) is having a mid-life crisis — not exactly a hoot for the kids in the audience, and their parents can suffer through that at home for free. As for the animation, presenting it in 3-D doesn’t add a whole lot. This is not a deeply immersive experience; more often, it consists of stuff being flung at you in gimmicky fashion. And the frustrating part is, the “Shrek” movies didn’t need an added dimension: They already had an impressive visual scheme all their own. Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas return to the voice cast. RATED: PG for mild action, some rude humor and brief language. In 3-D and IMAX 3-D. RUNNING TIME: 93 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.

Has Shrek reached the end of the line? By CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press Given that “Shrek Forever After” is the first film in the franchise in 3-D, it’s surprisingly flat — and we’re not just talking about the look of it. This fourth and allegedly final installment in the series is lifeless, joyless and woefully devoid of the upbeat energy that distinguished the earlier movies — well, at least the first two. If “Shrek the Third” from 2007 felt tired, “Shrek Forever After” is practically narcoleptic. Brief bursts of manic energy give way to long, heavy stretches that drag. Most of the hackneyed pop culture references of its predecessors are gone, mercifully, but so is the fun. This time, the big, bad ogre is having a mid-life crisis — not exactly a hoot for the kids in the audience, and their parents can suffer through that at home for free. As for the animation, presenting it in 3-D doesn’t add a whole lot. This is not a deeply immersive experience; more often, it consists of stuff being flung at you in gimmicky fashion. After this summer, when about a half-dozen movies will be leaping out at us in 3-D, can the whole trend just go away? Please? And the frustrating part is, the “Shrek” movies didn’t need an added dimension: They already had an impressive visual scheme all their own. The texture of the surroundings that made the franchise stand out among a slew of animated fare — the tactile nature of the grass and trees, the water, Donkey’s fur — gets obliterated when rendered in 3-D. And so in theory, all that’s left is the story, but that doesn’t reach out and grab us either. As directed by Mike Mitchell (“Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” ‘’Sky High”) from a script by Josh Klausner and Darren Lemke, “Shrek Forever After” finds the lovable green dude

Associated Press

This film publicity image released by Paramount Pictures, Shrek, voiced by Mike Myers, left, and Rumpelstiltskin, voiced by Walt Dohrn, are shown in a scene from “Shrek Forever After.” (voiced as always by Mike Myers) increasingly disenchanted with his subdued, family-man existence. The triplets he had with wife Fiona (Cameron Diaz) are a year old now, and he realizes that each new day is the same as the last (in a sequence straight out of “Groundhog Day”). After being repeatedly tormented at his kids’ birthday party to “do the roar” that made him famous — one of a handful of jokes that are funny the first couple times but get beaten

into the ground — Shrek loses it. He misses the simple pleasures of being a fearsome ogre: terrorizing villagers, wallowing in the mud, etc. He throws a tantrum. Blinded by his frustration, he enters an ill-advised contract with the obviously evil Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn) to revisit his old life for one day. But this sends him to an alternate universe where the land of Far, Far Away, as he knew it, no longer exists. Fiona isn’t his wife but

rather a warrior princess leading a rebellion; his best friend, Donkey (Eddie Murphy), is still perky and sassy but doesn’t know him; and, most troubling purely from a survival standpoint, ogres are being hunted in the woods. That’s right, it’s the old alternateuniverse bit. So Shrek must befriend Donkey and woo Fiona to make everything right again: basically, repeat all the steps he went through in part one,

which only reinforces the lack of originality now that we’ve reached part four. An attempt an injecting some novelty with the Rumpelstiltskin character also falls flat: He’s tiny but hugely obnoxious. It’s one thing to have an over-the-top villain if he’s a compelling, well-developed figure. This guy is just off-putting. The only thing that changes about him are the wigs he wears for various occasions.

“Sex and the City 2” – without the city By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge I feel somewhat troubled by the fact t h a t “ t h e C i t y ” , a s i n N e w Yo r k C i t y, is a such a part of the title and history of the Sex and the City franchise, yet feels irrelevant to the new sequel hitting theatres this weekend. Just having explained to a co-worker that it was like an additional character, not just a location of the events, I expected to see the Big Apple shown in sparkling detail and brought to life for the movie. Alas, “Sex and the City 2” spends most of its considerable running time (again, five back-to-back episodes’ worth) abroad in Abu Dhabi. Our favorite characters - Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon), and Charlotte Yo r k ( K r i s t i n D a v i s ) - e a c h l e a d f u l l , interesting, successful, trying lives. They w e re t a i l o r- m a d e ( n a t u r a l l y ! ) f o r t h e silver screen, but so were their problems. The first half of the films establishes the overwhelming obstacles that lead to

each character ’s cry for catharsis. To wit, Samantha rages against the on-set of menopause. In a fit of empowerment, Miranda leaves her law firm after feeling u n a p p re c i a t e d . B e i n g m a r r i e d t o M r. Big has Carrie feeling boxed in (and him unable to roost). Worst, In a bid to escape the children she tried so hard for so long to have, Charlotte starts to abuse the services of her nanny (Alice Eve), an overly attractive young Irish woman who turns many heads with her naive sexual appeal. Some of the classic stuff is still present: the husbands (Chris Noth, David E i g e n b e rg , a n d E v a n H a n d l e r ) g a t h e r

for golf or dutifully hold their wives’ purses. Carrie’s books continue to fly off the shelves, while leaving her artistically unfulfilled. Smith Jerrod (Jason Lewis) still revs up Samantha’s engine, but she’s onto something new with Rikard (Max Ryan), a dreamy Danish architect. When life gets too hard, though, the girls get going on an all-expenses-paid trip to the capital city of the United Arab Emirates for a relief vacation. Under the guise of Samantha’s publicity agency, and through the graces of a wealthy hotelier sheik (Art Malik), they do it up right, turning “the new Middle East” on its ear. They live like kings in a region where women are still second-class citizens. There is no political message here, but the topic is merely noted and discussed frankly as the quartet sip strong coffee, ride camels and spend time being doted upon by their personal butlers (only one of whom gets actual lines). The rabble-rousing reaches a climax, first, when Carrie bumps into former beau Aidan Shaw (John Corbett, looking

better than ever) at a spice market. They meet cute, have a friendly date, a n d i n t ro d u c e t h e m s e l v e s t o t h e i d e a of rekindling what once burned so hot for them. Would Carrie cheat? I won’t s a y h e re , b u t t h e e n t i re s c e n a r i o w a s the closest thing that passed for plot in a film based on flash (Liza Minnelli, Penelope Cruz, and Miley Cyrus cameo), excess (who really needs two great Manhattan apartments), and decadence ( M o ro c c o d o u b l e s f o r t h e U A E i n t h e picture, but it might as well be the moon for what this Middle American knows about living that high kind of life). It did get a little more interesting when Samantha faced possible detainment for immodest behavior, a crime punishable by imprisonment in the seaside desert destination. Wr i t e r / p r o d u c e r / d i r e c t o r M i c h a e l Patrick King did what he knows best how to do. We should at least be pleased that the movie flows better than the original picture. It’ll never be as good as the series, but it’s still a great date movie... especially if you don’t mind going armin-arm with your best gal pals.

Old favorites score at box office

"Shrek Forever After," "Sex and the City 2" are holiday weekend winners LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Shrek Forever After” won another weekend at the box office, while “Sex and the City 2” and “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Ti m e ” w e re i n a p h o t o f i n i s h for the No. 2 spot. Wi t h $ 5 5 . 7 m i l l i o n o v e r t h e l o n g M e m o r i a l D a y h o l i d a y, D r e a m Wo r k s A n i m a t i o n ’ s “Shrek Forever After” was No. 1 for a second-straight weekend. The movie raised its 10-day domestic total to $145.5 million. “To be so decisively No. 1 in the face of these other two big movies is pretty thrilling,” said Anne Globe, head of marketing for DreamWorks Animation. Many in Hollywood thought “Sex and the City 2” would debut at No. 1. But the Warner Bros. release may have to settle for third-place. Based on studio estimates Monday for the four-day weekend, Disney’s “Prince of Persia” debuted at No. 2 with $37.8 million, slightly ahead of the $37.1 million for “Sex and the City 2.” T h e t w o m o v i e s w e re c l o s e enough that second- and thirdplace rankings could change once final numbers are released Tuesday.

“Sex and the City 2,” which re u n i t e s S a r a h J e s s i c a P a r k e r and her fashionable co-stars from the HBO series, would have put up bigger weekend n u m b e r s , b u t Wa r n e r B r o s . decided to give the movie a head-start by opening it Thursday, a day ahead of most new releases. The movie took in $14.2 million on Thursday, leaving it with $51.4 million after its first five days. The original “Sex and the City” movie took in $56.8 million in its first three days in 2008. “ We o b v i o u s l y s i p h o n e d o ff some of our weekend by going a day early,” said Dan Fellman, head of distribution at Warner Bros. Based on the video game, “Prince of Persia” stars Jake Gyllenhaal in an action adventure set in ancient times. Box-office analysts had expected it to finish the weekend behind “Shrek Forever After” and “Sex and the City 2.” While “Prince of Persia” trailed those movies for most of the weekend, it held up well enough Monday to slide into the No. 2 spot. “Our surprise strength through the weekend and

coming in second rather than the predicted third was a nice plus,” said Chuck Viane, head of distribution for Disney. Like “Sex and the City 2,” the fourth “Shrek” movie is trailing its predecessors, opening well behind the $100-million-dollar plus debut weekends for the second and third sequels. T h e d i ff e re n c e g ro w s w i d e r considering “Shrek Forever After” benefits from premium 3-D ticket prices, which cost a few dollars more than 2-D admissions.

With a $20.6 million weekend and a domestic total of $279.2 million, Paramount’s “Iron Man 2” is outpacing its predecessor. But Hollywood’s overall business is starting to lag compared to last year ’s record summer revenues. Ti c k e t s a l e s f o r F r i d a y t o Monday came in at about $187 million, down nearly 16 percent compared to Memorial Day weekend in 2009, according to box-office tracker Hollywood. com.

F a c t o r i n g in higher ticket prices, though, admissions so far this summer are down 6.6 percent compared to last year ’s, according to Hollywood.com. “The audience is not absolutely thrilled with the movies in the marketplace, and they’re voting with their absence now,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst at Hollywood. com. ••• Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Monday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, a c c o rd i n g t o H o l l y w o o d . c o m .

Fishermen: Gulf seafood is still safe NEW ORLEANS (AP) — As the thick oil from the BP spill bubbles t h ro u g h t h e G u l f o f M e x i c o , threatening sea life and wetlands, foodies are taking up knife, fork and wine glass to defend the equally vulnerable reputation of the coast’s seafood industry. The New Orleans Wine and Food Experience, an annual celebration of the city’s love of all things tasty, is pairing wines from around the world with the cooking of some of the city’s best chefs to help deliver the message: Louisiana seafood is still safe, available and delicious. “What’s at stake is a whole way of life,” said John Besh, a cookbook author and one of the city’s most celebrated chefs. “It’s one of the richest ecosystems in the world. Anything that lives, swims, eats or breeds in the Gulf of

Mexico starts out in the Louisiana wetlands,” he said. “We need to protect it, and we need to let the world know it’s still available.” The festival, which opened last Wednesday, is a bit more tony than the recent Jazz and Heritage Festival or French Quarter Festival — organizers say they expect attendees in the $100,000-plus income bracket. It traditionally p ro v i d e s a t o u r i s m b o o s t a s New Orleans’ begins its slide into summer, when visitors tend to avoid the city’s heat and high humidity. To help attract national attention, Besh and Paula Deen, the queen of southern cooking and Food Network star, are teaming up during the festival to hype local seafood and raise money for the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation.

Television DeGeneres looks to broaden horizons NEW YORK (AP) — When Ellen DeGeneres was selected to replace Paula Abdul on “American Idol,” there were a few grumblings from people who questioned her musical expertise. While it was clear from her boogying ways on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she’s a music fan, DeGeneres had no official role in the industry and had never played a role in creating music. Now, that’s all changed. With her new record company, eleveneleven, DeGeneres is poised to become more than just a tastemaker; she’s hoping to be a star-maker. And some of music’s top executives and entertainers believe the talk-show host and “Idol” judge is the right person to help a sagging industry. “She has talent, she has feel, and she has the platform. She’s the modern record company. Ellen is what a record company will look like

in the future,” said Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope, Geffen and A&M Records. In an announcement earlier this week, DeGeneres said the first artist to be signed to the label is 12-yearold Greyson Chance, who recently became a sensation on YouTube with his piano version of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.” There’s no date for the album’s release, and a source familiar with the new label said DeGeneres is in talks to distribute eleveneleven through a major record company. Eleveneleven is a partnership between DeGeneres and Telepictures Productions, the producer of her hit show. Even before creating the label, DeGeneres was seen as a powerful force to boost music in the industry. While many talk shows have music guests, DeGeneres’ show stands out because she’s a fan.

“Her openness to music and her love of music has been a great aid in us really sort of breaking our artists and exposing our artists,” said Antonio “L.A.” Reid, chairman of

Island Def Jam. The record label considered her so critical to the project’s success that Kanye West’s first video from his 2008 album, “808s & Heartbreak,”

premiered on her show; he also performed. “It’s been great for us, and we consider her show an asset to our industry,” he said.

“We’re always on the go!”
