On the Edge of the Weekend

June 6, 2013


Bill Tucker/The Edge

Music, cars, food and fun have become the mainstays of the annual Route 66 Festival at Edwardsville City Park.

By MATT WINTE Of The Edge Edwardsville get ready to roll – it’s time to get ready for the 16th Annual Route 66 Festival. For the second year in a row the festival will kick off with the sock hop, with this year’s edition taking place at the Wildey Theatre from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on June 6. The third floor of the theatre will be transformed into a ‘50s dance hall complete with decorations and a deejay playing music. “It’s a really informal fun dance, with games and prizes. People will show up in poodle skirts and their costumes and that sort of thing,” said Katie Grable, Parks and Recreation Program Coordinator. Last’s year sock hop attracted about 70 people and this year they are hoping to build on the success of next year’s event.  “Last year was the first year we did a kick off event and found that the sock hop theme was well received prompting us to do it again this year,” says Katie Grable, of the City of Edwardsville’s Parks & Recreation Department. “We encourage anyone who shares in our appreciation for American nostalgia to grab a few friends and get their tickets now.” Tickets for the sock hop are $10 and available by calling Edwardsville Parks & Recreation at 692-7538 or for pick up at the following locations: The Edwardsville Library and the Wildey Theater. The festival kicks off at 5 p.m. on June 7 with food vendors, an art fair, and the family fun zone. “To me it feels like the festival starts when the music starts and that is at 6:30 with The Robert Perry Band,” said Grable. A highlight for anyone who visits the Route 66 Festival is the food at the “Taste of the Road” food court. “The festival is well attended so some groups use this

as a fundraiser,” said Grable. Moving away from the food there will be the Roadside Art Fair taking place during the festival with opportunities for artists to sell their original works.  The art fair will have original creations in all mediums including: clay, weaving, fiber, fabric, wood, metal, glass, leather, graphics, painting and photography. While the talent show is under way there will be another contest going on at the north end of the park, the Sixth Annual Mother Road Washers Tournament at 12:30 p.m. June 8. The double-elimination tournament will feature 32, twoperson teams competing for a $200 first prize, $100 second prize, and $50 each for third and fourth prize. The registration fee is $25 per team in advance and $30 day of the event and is limited to the first 32 teams to register. “It’s a really causal and fun game. It takes two people to form a team so you can usually find someone to do it with you,” said Grable. After the tournament is over the pits will be left out so that people who want to play can. After the talent show and the washers tournament have wrapped up, live music will begin at the bandstand with local teen band Exit 12 beginning the day’s live music at 2:30 p.m. They are followed by Fanfare at 4 p.m. At 6:30 p.m. Aaron Kamm and The One Drops will be taking the stage and closing the evening out will be Mr. Wizard at 9 p.m. The car show and the car cruise will once again take place at the Liberty Middle School parking lot but this year they have reserved the upper and lower parking lot to make sure that they have enough space to accommodate the large turnout. Registration and assembly begins at 3 p.m. with the car

show beginning at 4 p.m. Awards will be given for mayor’s choice, police chief’s choice and city administrator’s choice. There will be no classes. At 6:30 p.m. the cruise will depart fom the Lincoln Middle School parking lot and will follow Route 66 past Edwardsville City Park and circle around to end at the Cassens Transport parking lot. Registration can be completed early or on the day of event, and the first 100 participants who sign up will receive a dash plaque. For information about the Route 66 Festival, visit www. or by calling the parks and recreation department at 692-7538.

On the Edge of the Weekend



Marci Winters-McLaughlin/The Edge

Nothing beats a dip in the pool during the summer, but safety should be a top priority.



chool is out, Memorial Day has passed and the pools are officially open – summer is here! All over the country, kids are kicking off their shoes, pulling on their swimsuits and getting ready to dive into three long months of watery fun.

But before you or your kids make a splash this summer, make sure everybody knows how to swim safely. Did you know that between 2005 and 2009, there were an average of 3,533 fatal unintentional drownings (nonboating related) annually in the United States? That works out to about 10 deaths per day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And children are the ones most at risk. The CDC states that children between the ages of 1 and 4 have the highest drowning rates of all. It goes on to state that in 2009, among children 1 to 4-years-old who died from an unintentional injury, more than 30 percent died from drowning. Yes, those numbers are scary. But hopefully they will also motivate us to take action and do everything possible to protect our children while swimming or playing around water. Some precautions, like providing adequate adult supervision, should go without saying. This is true even for seemingly harmless activities like playing in a kiddy pool with just a couple of inches of water in it. This is still enough for a young child to drown. Other actions, such as clearing the pool and deck of toys, rafts and other floatation devices might not come to mind immediately. After all, what’s the harm in leaving a


On the Edge of the Weekend

few toys floating around while everyone goes inside for a snack? Probably nothing unless it entices a child into the pool area unsupervised. Even the simplest actions could save a life. The CDC advises these tips to help you stay safe in the water: • Supervise children when in or around water. As stated above, this one goes without saying. There should always be a designated adult to supervise young children while in the bath and all children swimming or playing in or around water. The CDC recommends using “touch supervision,” meaning the adult is close enough to reach the child at all times. Adults should not be involved in distracting activities such as reading, talking on the phone or mowing the lawn while supervising children, even if lifeguards are present. • Use the Buddy System. • Learn to Swim. Formal swimming lessons can protect young children from drowning. The YMCA of Edwardsville has a wide range of swimming classes available for children aged 6 months through to teenagers. To sign up or for more information, call 656-0436 (Esic Center) or 655-1460 (Meyer Center) or visit • Learn Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). In the time it takes for paramedics to arrive, your CPR skills could save someone’s life. • Air-Filled or Foam Toys are not safety devices. Don’t use air-filled or foam toys, such as water wings, noodles, or inner-tubes, instead of life jackets. These toys are not life jackets and are not designed to keep swimmers safe. • Avoid Alcohol. 

June 6, 2013

Avoid drinking alcohol before or during swimming, boating, or water skiing. Do not drink alcohol while supervising children. • Don’t let swimmers hyperventilate before swimming underwater or try to hold their breath for long periods of time. This can cause them to pass out (sometimes called “shallow water blackout”) and drown. • Know the local weather conditions and forecast before swimming or boating. Strong winds and thunderstorms with lightning strikes are dangerous. If you have a swimming pool at home: • Install four-sided fencing. Install a four-sided pool fence that completely separates the pool area from the house and yard. The fence should be at least 4 feet high. Use self-closing and self-latching gates that open outward with latches that are out of reach of children. Also, consider additional barriers such as automatic door locks and alarms to prevent access or alert you if someone enters the pool area. • Clear the pool and deck of toys. Remove floats, balls and other toys from the pool and surrounding area immediately after use so children are not tempted to enter the pool area unsupervised. If you are in and around natural water settings: • Use U.S. Coast Guard approved life jackets. • Know the meaning of and obey warnings represented by colored beach flags. • Watch for dangerous waves and signs of rip currents. • If you are caught in a rip current, swim parallel to shore. Once free of the current, swim diagonally toward shore. For more information about swimming and water safety, visit

People People planner Peabody to host Legends of the Ring The Legends of the Ring, an ev en i ng o f l i ve , on - st a g e entertainment featuring all-time boxing greats Sugar Ray Leonard, Thomas Hearns and Robert Durán, will begin a three city tour starting June 21st at the Midland Theater in Kansas City. The show, which will consist of a sit-down conversation between these pugilistic kings, will be produced by Tate Entertainment/ Icon Concerts and moderated by Brian Kilmeade of Fox News. The performance will also include archived video footage of some of their spectacular battles, short-form original content and questions from the audience.  Show time on June 22 is 8 p.m. at the Peabody Opera House in downtown St. Louis.  Ticket Prices are $350, $95, $75 & $55 plus a facility fee.  Tickets available at the Ford Box Office at Scottrade Center, all Ticketmaster ticket centers, www. or by phone at 1800-745-3000.  In 1979 Sugar Ray Leonard defeated Wilfredo Benitez to win the WBC Welterweight Championship and was declared “Fighter of the Year” by the Boxing Writers Association of America and Ring Magazine.  Va c a t i n g t h e L i g h t w e i g h t title in 1980 for an attempt at the Welterweight title, Roberto Durán earned a pair of wins against former WBC Welterweight Champion Carlos Palamino and Zeferino Gonzalez setting the stage for a title bout against then undefeated WBC Welterweight Champion, Sugar Ray Leonard. The venue chosen was the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, the same location where Leonard won an Olympic gold medal during the 1976 Summer Olympics. Durán resented that he was getting only one-fifth the

money Leonard would make despite the fact that he was entering the bout with an incredible 71-1 record. On June 20, 1980, Durán captured the title by defeating Leonard via a 15-round unanimous decision. The fight became known as "The Brawl in Montreal." In their infamous November rematch, Durán unexpectedly quit. Leonard has said that his strategy was to use speed and agility to taunt and frustrate Durán, believing it was his best chance of winning the fight. In the seventh round, Leonard started to taunt Durán. His most memorable punch came late in the round. Winding up with his right hand, as if to throw a bolo punch, Leonard hit Durán flush in the face with a left. In the eighth round, Durán, slightly behind on all three scorecards, shortly after a vicious right-uppercut from Leonard, turned around, walked to his corner and gave up, supposedly saying the now famous words, "No más" (no more). However, he claims to have actually said, "No quiero pelear con el payaso." (Meaning, "I do not want to fight with this clown.") Another version of events has him saying, in Spanish, "I can't continue." Referee Octavio Meyran, perhaps as incredulous as was the rest of the world at what he was seeing, asked Durán if he was sure, and Durán then said, "No más, no más" (no more, no more). In violation of what any professional fighter does on the day of a fight, Durán gorged himself after the weigh-in and claimed he quit because he was having stomach cramps. However, Durán's manager, Carlos Eleta, said, "Durán didn't quit because of stomach cramps. He quit because he was embarrassed. I know this." Promoted as "The Showdown,” Sugar Ray Leonard fought WBA Welterweight Champion, Thomas Hearns on September 16, 1981 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas to unify the World Welterweight

Championship. In this legendary fight, Hearns suffered his first professional defeat when Leonard stopped him in the 14th round. In the 13th round, Leonard, behind on points on all 3 judge’s scorecards, needed a knockout to win. He came on strong and put Hearns through the ropes at the end of the round. Hearns was dazed, totally out of gas and received a count but was saved

by the bell. Leonard, with his left eye shut and time running out, resumed his attack in the 14th. Hearns started the round boxing and moving, but after staggering him with an overhand right, Leonard pinned Hearns against the ropes. After another combination to the body and head, referee Davey Pearl stopped the fight. Hearns and Leonard banked a combined 17

million dollars for the fight, making it the largest purse in sports history. The following year, Leonard retired due to a detached retina caused by a Hearns jab and there would be no rematch until 1989. Now, for the first time, audiences will be able see up-close and personal, these Hall of Fame warriors reminisce and share their behindthe-scenes stories.

Dining Delights

You Gotta' Eat Maid-Rite an institution in western Illinois

By BILL ROSEBERRY Of The Edge On a trip to Moline to cover a wrestling tournament for the Edwardsville Tigers, I got the chance to have a new experience at an old tradition — Maid-Rite. Maid-Rite is a diner franchise that’s been in existence since 1926, the home of the “loose-meat sandwich.” In 1926 it was a single restaurant, but now there are MaidRite restaurants in 11 states, including five in Illinois. The closest one to Edwardsville is Quincy. The other spots are: Moline, East Moline, Milan and Galesburg. So what is a loose-meat sandwich? You guessed it. It has the consistency of a sloppy joe but without the sauce. The traditional way to tackle this creation is the Original Maid-Rite, which is said to be “a perfectly seasoned ground beef loose meat sandwich served on a warm bun.” I, of course, dared to be different. I needed a little more pizzazz with my Maid-Rite so I tacked on Swiss cheese, bacon (everything is better with bacon) and honey mustard. To complete my meal I added an order of sweet corn nuggets and a Goose Island root beer. Beer aficionados will recognize the name Goose Island as being a beer brewing company out of Chicago which is now owned by Anheuser-Busch InBev. It is the same Goose Island. Not only do they brew some fantastic beers, they have a line of sodas that includes root beer, orange cream and grape. My root beer had a very crisp taste and was a highlight on my visit. Unfortunately Maid-Rite doesn’t serve Goose Island’s line of beers which could have been an added bonus.

I was excited to get to enjoy sweet corn nuggets as part of my Maid-Rite experience. This was only my second encounter with these creamy, fried treats that are aptly named sweet. The corn casserole is preserved inside a breaded shell and is bursting with flavor. These magnificent side dishes should be on every restaurant menu and Maid-Rite’s version didn’t disappoint. Finally I tackled my Maid-Rite sandwich. My waitress served my sandwich with a spoon which I quickly thought was a

mistake and asked for a fork. She assured me the spoon was the right utensil and her assessment was correct. I have to say, I found the consistency of this loose-meat sandwich to be somewhat annoying. Unlike a sloppy joe, which uses its sauce to work as a glue to keep most of the meat together, a Maid-Rite simply crumbles into the provided basket with the majority of bites because there is nothing to hold it together. You end up scooping up most of the debris with the spoon.

June 6, 2013

As for the taste, the bacon, cheese and honey mustard added to the experience greatly. The loose meat was satisfactory, but I found it to be a little bland. But my biggest complaint was it was simply hard to eat. I would give Maid-Rite another chance as it offers plenty of options on the menu beside the loose-meat sandwich. They have such options as: a pulled pork sandwich, a breaded pork tenderloin sandwich, a chicken sandwich, a beer battered cod filet sandwich and an open-faced roast beef sandwich among others. There is also a selection of wraps and salads available. For sides there are all-stars like cheese curds, onion rings, smoked baked beans, chili and sweet potato fries to name a few. Maid-Rite has a list of milk shakes and floats available, too. As for the ambiance of Maid-Rite, it has stuck to its guns of being a '50s style diner. There were pictures of James Dean, Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe draping the walls at the Moline location, among many other '50- style photos and amenities. Maid-Rite was the original restaurant to offer “car-hop” service which later became a staple for A&W and now is most notably offered by Sonic. Now they are dine-in establishments. The experience itself is worth checking out if you happen to discover one of their 54 locations in your travels. The company hopes to expand and maybe one day there will be a Maid-Rite in the metroeast. It definitely offers a blast of nostalgia and a unique experience with its signature sandwich.

For The Edge

Jay Nash

Jay Nash sings Americana By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge


f the last decade was dominated by manufactured bands and reality show favorites, then the start of this one just might be the era when we fully appreciate the rise of the Americana singersongwriter.

True, Americana music has always been around, hovering in the background behind the slick beat of the latest pop hit. Occasionally, a lone voice will break through the traditional genre boundaries and amaze us with music that is at once new and yet comfortably familiar. Artists like Ray LaMontagne, Mumford & Sons, Ryan Adams and others continue to keep Americana music alive, as well as introducing the sound to a growing group of dedicated fans. Indie-folk performer Jay Nash falls squarely into this mix. Nash’s soulful blend of Ameriana, folk and rock draws the listener in with its quietly beautiful melodies and introspective lyrics joined together by his alternately soaring and scraggy voice. Nash will co-headline a show with Austin, Texas-based

singer-songwriter David Ramirez at 8 p.m. on June 8 at Off Broadway, located at 3509 Lemp Ave. in St. Louis. He has often been compared to Bruce Springsteen, and it’s easy to see why. On “Wander” from his latest album, “Letters from the Lost,” which was released on May 14, we hear Nash sing the opening lines, “Wander where you will/The voice will never still” with a haunting and rugged twang. Even well-known favorites like the holiday classic, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” take on a moody new feel when Nash is singing. But to fully appreciate Nash’s music one must also look deeper into the lyrics. For Nash is a seeker of truth and understanding. His music goes beyond simple entertainment and through it he attempts to bridge the gap between our human longing to understand the crazy world around us. On the biography page of his website he states: “I suspect that the universe has some particular resonant frequencies and I believe that is truth that we are all looking for. Just as it exists in the physical world, I think that we can find that resonance in melody, harmony, rhythm and poetry. I was lucky enough to discover it very early on in my life – and so, I take that as a hint from the universe that I should encourage and enable others to

make similar discoveries.” Critics agree that Nash is a rare gem of a musician. Alternate Root TV said of him: “Jay Nash has a voice that vibrates with the power of commitment. That is the guarantee that he gives away with each song. Jay is a seeker, and the lessons he learns, the questions he asks of himself and others, can be found in his music. The tracks on Letters from the Lost present themselves with music that cradles Jay’s words. The soft acoustics are content to support the voice, to let the words stand as testament to the power of the singer/songwriter to elicit change through his sweetly sung dialogue.” Nash is a veteran musician who has shared stages with bands like the Counting Crows and Maroon 5 to the indie pop singer Ingrid Michaelson. He has worked with some of the best musicians in the business on his previous albums, including Don Heffington (drummer for Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams, Ricki Lee Jones) Rob Wasserman (bass for Bob Weir, Ratdog) Chris Joyner (keys for Ray Lamontagne, Jason Mraz) and Jamie Wollam (drums for Jackson Browne). For more information about Jay Nash or to download his album, “Letters from the Lost,” visit his website at www.

Wildey to host Exile, Juice Newton By BILL TUCKER Of The Edge "Back to the Future" isn't on the Wildey Theatre's movie list any time soon although its musical lineup certainly has a nostalgic feel to it. Over the course of three days – June 6 to 8 – the Wildey's rafters will be filled with the sounds of the '60s, '70s and '80s. At 8 p.m. on June 6, Satisfaction – A Tribute to the Rolling Stones – will take the stage. June 8, meanwhile, will see Silver Bullet – A Tribute to Bob Seger will dish up plenty of "Old Time Rock 'n Roll" beginning at 8 p.m. Sandwiched in between are the real


deals – Exile and Juice Newton – who are performing a Friday night doubleheader beginning at 8 p.m. Exile is, for all practical matters, two bands in one. The Kentucky-based band first made it big with the pop hit "Kiss You All Over" in 1978. But pop didn't go down well for the five-piece band which turned country and produced such hits as "Crazy for Your Love," "Hang on to Your Heart," "She's Too Good to Be True," and "I Can't Get Close Enough." Nine times over the last 40 years – be it contemporary or country – Exile has reached a No. 1 spot on the record charts. Newton's career parallels that of Exile

as she, too, has dabbled in both pop and country. She's charted 14 hits in her long career including "Angel of the Morning" and "Queen of Hearts." She's recorded with such artists as Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Roseanne Cash and Alabama. Girls Night Out is scheduled June 14 at the Wildey with a concert featuring SHEL and Samantha Fish with opening act Tess Hanna! SHEL, the quartet of sisters whose songs meld ethereal harmonies, out-of-thebox melodies and remarkable musicianship. The Randall Bramblett Band, appearing July 12, is an extraordinary group of pros from the Athens/Atlanta area. On guitars

are Bramblett’s old friend and writing partner from the early days, Davis Causey and a new and versatile arrival, Mike Hines. Mike Steele and Gerry Hansen. Mean Street – A Tribute to Van Halen will bring its hard-rocking ways to the Wildey on July 13, serving up such high-energy numbers as "Runnin' With the Devil," "Jump" and "Panama." Thunderhead – A Tribute to Rush is scheduled to appear Aug. 17. Jonathan Edwards and John Ford Coley, two more '70s-era headliners, will take the Wildey stage on Sept. 14.

Diana Krall, Celtic Thunder are on the schedule By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge


udiences will enjoy the sultry tones of jazz songstress Diana Krall when she comes to St. Louis at 8 p.m. on Sept. 27 at the Fox Theatre. The Grammy-winner will make a stop in St. Louis as part of the American leg of her current Glad Rag Doll World Tour, which kicked off in April in Miami. Krall has already received rave reviews in Europe and Canada for her current tour performances with London’s Evening Standard calling it “exquisite” and “brimming with innovation.” The tour follows the release of Krall’s latest album, “Glad Rag Doll,” with Verve Music Group last October. “Glad Rag Doll” marks Krall’s fifth consecutive Top 10 debut on the Billboard 200. Information on Krall’s website describes the album as “an exhilarating and adventurous exploration of new sounds, new instrumentation and new musicians.” The 13-track album, which Krall has called a “song and dance” record, is filled with classic 1920s and ‘30s songs from vaudeville’s heyday that have been brought into the 21st century thanks to Krall’s

unique take on them. This includes the 1932 song, “We Just Couldn’t Say Goodbye” by Harry Woods; “Let it Rain” by James Kendis and Hal Dyson from 1924 and the popular Doc Pomus song, “Lonely Avenue,” which was a hit song for Ray Charles in 1956. “We all just went in there as if the songs were written yesterday. I didn’t want to make a period piece or nostalgia record,” Krall said on her website. Krall worked on the album with producer T Bone Burnett and engineer Mike Piersante for the first time. She also collaborated with Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood and photographer Mark Seliger to create a series of photographs inspired by Alfred Cheney Johnston’s pictures of girls from the Ziegfeld Follies during the 1920s. For her Fox performance, Krall will be accompanied on stage by a group of talented fellow musicians. This includes guitarist Aram Bajakian, bassist Dennis Crouch, Stuart Duncan on fiddle and guitars, drummer Karriem Riggins and keyboardist Patrick Warren. Canadian-born Krall entered the music scene in 1993 with the release of her first album, “Stepping Out.” Since then, the jazz singer and pianist has gone on to become one of the best-selling musicians in the world.

On the Edge of the Weekend


Religion Australian evangelical delivers his message HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — The 25,000 people at the soccer stadium and the millions more watching at home waited 90 minutes before the Australian evangelical preacher got to the message he had come to Communist-ruled Vietnam to deliver. "Do you know why I love God?" Nick Vujicic asked a young girl on stage who, like him, was born without arms and legs. "Because heaven is real. And one day when we get to heaven, we are going to have arms and legs. And we are going to run, and we are going play, and we are going to race." The remark was Vujicic's only direct reference to his faith in a night that was otherwise motivational. Most people in the audience were not Christians, but were attracted to Vujicic as a living example of overcoming adversity. Yet Vujicic's appearance is a sign of how a government that once severely restricted religion as a challenge to its authoritarian one-party rule is now taking a slightly more relaxed attitude. Those associated with Vujicic's Vietnam tour said it was the first by a foreign Christian — and the largest gathering

to be addressed by a foreigner in the country's recent history. For Vujicic (VOOY-CHEECH) and the 12 members of "Team Nick," the mostly Californian crew organizing his Asian tour, it was another country to add to the long list in which he has spread the Gospel. His charity had revenues of more than $1.6 million last year, his YouTube videos have been watched millions of times and he has authored three bestselling books. "We are a unique ministry. We can go on national TV where other Christians cannot," Vujicic said backstage Thursday, his face and hair wet from a tropical downpour that almost cut short his appearance on a hot Hanoi evening. "Of course, in Vietnam there are limitations in how you can and can't talk about your faith, but with wisdom we come in. Some places we go we have to be wise as serpents and gentle as doves." Nguyen Dat An, a Christian who organized the trip, said he was surprised the state broadcaster didn't cut off Vujicic's speech when he brought up God and heaven. Vujicic's translator appeared to be caught

unawares, and stumbled. "Come on man," said the Australian, urging him to translate his words. "This was a miracle in Vietnam," said An. "God is the general director of this event." Vietnam is about 8 percent Christian and 16 percent Buddhist, while about 45 percent of Vietnamese belong to indigenous religions, according to the 2010 Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. Vietnam's constitutions provide for religious freedom, but in practice it is regulated and in some cases restricted. Followers who speak up in favor of democracy face abuse, arrest and long sentences. The U.S. State Department's 2012 report on international religious freedom noted the restrictions but said there "were signs of progress." The country is often compared favorably to China, its giant authoritarian neighbor, in discussions on religious freedom. Vujicic was born with tetra-amelia syndrome, a rare disorder characterized by the absence of all four limbs. Amid childhood bullying, he once tried to drown himself. He credits Christianity with giving him the will to continue, and founded a California-

based religious charitable organization when he was 19. Now 30 and married with one son, he has visited 47 countries as part of his global outreach. Vujicic's trip to Vietnam was organized by local Christians but sponsored by a large construction company headed by a Buddhist. The company said it had spent $1.7 million staging his eight events in two cities, recognizing the value of having its brand associated with a good-looking foreigner with a compelling tale of success and family values, not to mention eye-catching images of him surfing, skateboarding and playing golf. Shares for the company, the Hoa Sen group, rose nearly 10 percent over the last four days, with Vujicic its only major recent publicity. Hoa Sen's sponsorship paid for a huge marketing campaign: billboards around major cities, social media buzz and his appearance on the front pages of most state-run newspapers when he arrived on Wednesday. It created a lot of the attention around his visit, but it was also clear his story struck a chord among many in Vietnam.

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

“Iron Man 3”

No matter how much of a scrap heap of metal-twisting mayhem the “Iron Man” franchise piles on (and it’s a lot), Robert Downey’s sheer charm — his unsentimental, offhand yammering — is the real superpower in Marvel’s trilogy. The latest follows not just “Iron Man 2” but the box-office busting “The Avengers.” These global blockbusters are more produced than directed, but it’s nevertheless fitting that Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,” also with Downey) here inherits the helm from Jon Favreau, the director of the previous two. Black, with co-script writer Drew Pearce, squeezes in as much self-aware, winking wisecracks that give the film some zip. But in a fight between screwball irony and blockbuster bombast, the heavy-metal action unfortunately wins. Downey’s billionaire Tony Stark (Iron Man) is pulled into a battle with the terrorist Mandarin (a bearded Ben Kingsley), who takes credit for a series of random bombings. Also in the bad guy mix is Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce), an inventor turned military contractor whom Stark haphazardly jilted back in his partying years. When helicopter missiles collapse Stark’s Malibu estate into the sea, he’s separated from his companion Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and forced to rebuild himself. The action is mostly cut too quickly to enjoy and the 3-D lends a disappointing darkening for what’s been a bright-hued franchise. With Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and an excellent Ty Simpkins as a mop-headed, fatherless boy who helps Stark. RATED: PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence throughout, and brief suggestive content. RUNING TIME: 130 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Frances Ha”

On paper it sounds unbearably precious and solipsistic — a cliche, even. Middle-class, college-educated white girl in her mid-20s wanders around New York City with no real home, job or purpose, and as she struggles to find herself, she ends up even more lost. Wah. But as it turns out, “Frances Ha” is absolutely charming: funny, sad, cringeinducing and heartbreaking but, above all, brimming with authenticity, thanks in large part to a winning star turn from indie darling Greta Gerwig. This is a great showcase for Gerwig’s abiding naturalism; not a single moment from her feels cutesy, self-conscious or false. She and director Noah Baumbach, who worked together on the 2010 comedy “Greenberg,” co-wrote the script, creating a sense of realism through a series of absurd moments. Frances is goofy and guileless, awkward and affectionate but clearly decent-hearted to the core, which only makes her misadventures more agonizing and makes you root harder for her to find true happiness. Baumbach, whose previous films include the subtle, brilliantly observant “The Squid and the Whale,” borrows from a couple of different sources here: the chatty, cultured New York epitomized by 1970s Woody Allen films and the black-and-white intimacy and restless youth of the French New Wave. But there’s a timelessness to this story and a universality: that state of uncertainty between the optimism of college and the responsibility of adulthood. RATED: R for sexual references and language. RUNNING TIME: 86 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

“Star Trek Into Darkness”

Like fan-boy fiction on a $185 million budget, director J.J. Abrams’ film is reverential, faithful and steeped in “Trek” mythology. It’s also an excessively derivative what-if rehash of themes and interactions that came before, most of the characters


On the Edge of the Weekend

lesser copies and even caricatures of the originals. The scenario’s been hijacked and rejiggered from better “Trek” plots of decades ago, the best verbal exchanges lifted nearly verbatim from past adventures. In short, the new chiefs of Starfleet aren’t coming up with much to call their own. But they pile on the spectacle in a way that’s never been seen before in “Star Trek”; the action in “Into Darkness” is top-notch, the visuals grand, though the movie’s needless conversion to 3-D muddies the images. Abrams was most definitely not a fan-boy for this franchise when he made 2009’s “Star Trek,” which reintroduced Kirk, Spock and the rest of the starship Enterprise gang with a timetravel twist that allowed the William Shatner-Leonard Nimoy original to coexist with an entirely different destiny for the new players. Abrams grew up a fan of “Star Wars,” the next space saga he’ll be reviving with the launch of a third trilogy. But his key collaborators, Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, are “Trek” fan-boys to their marrow. They know this world, they love this world, and like many fans, they have a particular fixation on 1982’s “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” the best that the franchise has ever had to offer, on the big-screen or TV. Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, John Cho and Zoe Saldana are among the returning ensemble cast. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence. RUNNING TIME: 132 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“Stories We Tell”

A documentary about Sarah Polley’s family: her father and mother, sister and brother, and the sister and brother she has from her mother’s first marriage. It’s about moments they’ve shared that are seemingly prosaic and universally relatable, as well as the betrayals and losses that shaped and strengthened them. But while it’s incredibly specific in its detail and makes you feel as if you’ve known these people forever after spending less than two hours with them, “Stories We Tell” is also about every family. It reveals that we’re all unreliable narrators of our own histories, especially after years and even decades have gone by. And it reminds us that the truth is a fleeting thing, constantly changing in the slightest of ways depending on who’s telling it. Polley, the Toronto-based actress-turned-filmmaker, has shown astonishing emotional depth and technical maturity at a young age in just two previous features: “Away From Her” and “Take This Waltz.” Like those earlier films, “Stories We Tell” focuses on how a long-term relationship evolves over time. Now 34 and tackling a subject that’s so close to her heart, she reveals a whole new level of artistic mastery. Her meta-, multilayered exploration of her own past combines interviews, archival footage and meticulous reenactments so seamlessly, it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s mythologized. And that’s the point. RATED: PG-13 for thematic elements involving sexuality, brief strong language and smoking. RUNNING TIME: 108 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

"Before Midnight"

The final scene of 2004's "Before Sunset" was so romantic it drove moviegoers crazy — happily crazy — especially because it was so tantalizingly ambiguous. Jesse and Celine, that appealing (and extremely talkative) couple played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, who had fallen in love in the 1995 "Before Sunrise," had reunited at last. In the gorgeous afternoon light of Paris, no less. But we didn't know what would happen next. Nine years later, we have our answer, and it was sure worth the wait. "Before Midnight," the third movie in the Richard Linklater series, is not only as good as the first two, it's arguably better, tackling weightier, trickier issues with wit, humor and breathtaking directness. The setting is still

June 6, 2013

gorgeous — it's a summer vacation in Greece. (Will these two ever venture to an ugly locale?) But the rest is different. Delpy gives Celine a new hardness here, an edge that we saw only a bit in the previous film. And Hawke is extremely effective as a man who adores his partner but is increasingly frustrated with her. It all comes to a head in a humdinger of a fight — just Jesse and Celine in a hotel room, plus a bottle of wine that doesn't get drunk. It gets poured, though, and you'll be so frazzled, you'll want to reach through the screen and chug it down yourself. RATED: R for sexual content/nudity and language. RUNNING TIME: 109 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three and a half stars out of four.

"Fast & Furious 6"

Clearly, nobody ever told the makers of the "Fast & Furious" franchise that less is more. More is ALWAYS more — and so regular fans will be delighted with this latest installment, which again ups the ante with the cars, the crazy stunts, the crashes and the fights. Vin Diesel's Dom, now wealthy and living the good life, is lured back into action by his erstwhile nemesis, the federal agent Hobbs (the absurdly buff Dwayne Johnson). It seems a villain named Shaw has amassed a huge military arsenal — including a big tank and a cargo jet — and is one component short of wreaking total havoc. Even more important for Dom, he has Letty working for him — she's Dom's former paramour, and seems to be suffering from amnesia. A welcome — indeed, crucial — element of all this is the film's sense of humor. Especially funny are Tyrese Gibson as Roman and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges as Tej, Dom's partners in crime. Not everyone gets out alive. As for the lucrative franchise, though, it's clearly alive and kicking; there's even a post-credits teaser here for the seventh film. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action and mayhem throughout, some sexuality and language. RUNNING TIME: 130 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

"The Hangover Part III"

"Daring" isn't a word you would use very much to describe 2011's "The Hangover Part II," the disappointingly lazy, beatfor-beat rehash of the wild and wildly successful original "Hangover" from 2009. And yet, here we are with part three, which runs a different sort of risk by going to darker and more dangerous places than its predecessors. It dares to alienate the very audience that made "The Hangover" the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time because, well, it isn't exactly a comedy. Sure, there are some outrageous lines and sight gags, mostly courtesy of Zach Galifianakis and Ken Jeong, who function as central figures this time when, previously, a little bit of them went a long way. But director and co-writer Todd Phillips signals early and often that he's much more interested than ever before in exploring matters of real consequence rather than simply mining them for brash laughs. This time, Galifianakis' insufferable, inappropriate man-child Alan has gone off his meds and is out of control. His family and friends — including fellow "Wolfpack" members Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms) and Doug (Justin Bartha) — stage an intervention and offer to drive him to a treatment center in Arizona. Clearly, this won't be an innocuous trek through the desert. RATED: R for pervasive language including sexual references, some violence and drug content, and brief graphic nudity. RUNNING TIME: 100 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.


Associated Press

This film publicity image released by Sony - Columbia Pictures shows Will Smith, left, and Jaden Smith in a scene from "After Earth."

"After Earth" a disappointing sci-fi tale By JOHN DeFORE The Hollywood Reporter LOS ANGELES (AP) — Humanity’s home planet hardly merits the name-check in “After Earth,” M. Night Shyamalan’s sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of “Oblivion,” not to mention countless other future-set films that

find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening. Will Smith’s presence, not just as costar but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan’s previous picture, the wretched “The Last Airbender,” but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere. Plans for such a franchise seem to be afoot, with filmmakers reportedly having written “1,000 years of back story” for these two characters and their society. They must be saving an awful lot for comic-book and videogame spinoffs, though, as the film squeezes its millennium-long setup into a few short moments of voiceover introduction. We l e a r n t h a t , h a v i n g ru i n e d o u r

environment, humans decamped en masse to Nova Prime, which would have been a nice place if not for the monsters that had been bred to kill humans. (By whom? Buy the comic book, kid.) Those beasts, Ursa, are blind, but can smell the pheromones humans release when afraid. When a member of the United Ranger Corps, the elder Smith’s Cypher Raige, found himself able to suppress his fear, he was suddenly invisible to the monsters. Harnessing this “ghosting” technique, he became a hero in the still-raging war. What we don’t learn in the too-quick intro is how all humankind came to speak in the same accent, most reminiscent perhaps of New Zealand’s -- one that suits none of the cast

very well, and makes Jaden Smith’s voiceover hard to follow. The script also fails to explain why future warriors, whose technology allows for a “cutlass” whose two ends morph into any type of blade the user requires, choose not to use guns or lasers against the mighty Ursa. One assumes it’s because somebody saw Darth Maul and thought his double-trouble light saber looked cool. In any event, Cypher Raige comes home between long campaigns to find his son Kitai unsettled, struggling to live up to his legacy. He decides to take the boy along on an interstellar voyage, but the ship is thrown off course by a gravitational storm and must land on the nearest planet.

Waiting for "Fast & Furious 7" By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge How in the world does a movie franchise based on a couple of bulked-up antiheroes driving very fast cars sustain itself into a sixth installment? Such is a question that it would be fair to ask going into "Fast & Furious 6" this past Memorial Day holiday weekend. Fairer still would be to wonder afterward how it's improved over time and now commands opening weekends north of $100 million grosses. There are a couple of key things one can point to, but it's ultimately the magic of movies that keep those ticket flying After the fantastic conclusion of "Fast Five," franchise stalwarts Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and Brian O'Conner (Paul

Walker) find themselves in a sunny beachside respite enjoying their lives and ladies (Jordana Brewster and Elsa Pataky) without worry for extradition for their crimes (stealing $100 million in cash from the cartels, if you've forgotten). Even with a new son and a happy outlook, Brian is quick to jump to Dom's aid when Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), the muscle-bound agent that chased them through Rio, bring news that his girlfriend, Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), is actually still alive. It's a terribly simple premise: good-guy criminals get away with it and then get roped into 'one last job' to get the one thing they'd all figured out how to live without. Plot, however, is a MacGuffin in the case of "Fast & Furious 6." Instead, we live for the reappearance of

gorgeous, gun-toting babes (Gal Gadot) and hilarious, constantlysnacking drivers (Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris) who know how to solve every international bit of espionage by driving souped-up sports cars at breakneck speeds. Even Hobbs brings along a new friend. Agent Riley is played with all butt-kicking ferocity by MMA fighter Gina Carano (Haywire). "6" introduces a ruthless gentleman villain named Shaw (Luke Evans) bent on collecting various bits of tech hardware from secure military bases and government institutions in order to assemble some dastardly device that would be worth billions and could kill millions. His team is made up of Eastern European baddies like Vegh (Clara Paget), a blonde Indy

car driver, and Klaus (Kim Kold), a thug with a neck so thick it could obscure the sun. He also works with Letty, still a keen asset during high stakes robbery, even if her amnesia makes her more surly than every other Michelle Rodriguez character that came before. The pragmatist inside me feels that pointing out the amazing level of diversity in the cast as one reason this series appeals to so many of the key demographics snatching up admission to your local theatre. Yet, having been to see each of these movies over the years, it doesn't matter. Crashing a car through the nose of a cargo plane or seeing one character leap from the roof of another car as it veers off a bridge, snapping another character out of mid-air,

June 6, 2013

and landing safely on the other side are the real reasons to keep showing up. Here are my rankings for the various Fast & Furious-es so far: 5, 1, 6, Tokyo Drift, 2 Fast 2 Furious, and 4. Go get 'em because Part 7 will be here before you know it. We know this, really, because its release date is already set for next July 11th, but also because of the stunning cliffhanger ending. It features a fiery scene with Han (Sung Kang) and the introduction of a new character over the closing credits. Hallelujah! "Fast & Furious 6" runs 134 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action and mayhem throughout, some sexuality and language. I give this film two stars out of four.

The Arts

Make a night of the "Twelfth Night" Forest Park's Shakespeare Glen is the place to be this summer By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Get thee to Shakespeare Glen for an evening filled with romance and comedy as lovers woo, identities are mistaken and the wine flows freely in “Twelfth Night” now playing in St. Louis’ Forest Park. The opening night performance of “Twelfth Night” saw Shakespeare Glen packed with audience members happily munching sandwiches and sipping wine under the stars. Onstage, the actors kept everyone entertained with their misadventures in love, drunken hijinks and thwarted plans for revenge. The plot of “Twelfth Night” may not be the easiest of Shakespeare’s plays to wrap your head around, but director Rick Dildine manages to keep everyone up to speed despite the confusion happening onstage. The play opens with the noblewoman Viola (Kimiye Corwin) washing up on the shore of the island Illyria following a shipwreck. Viola believes that her beloved twin brother, Sebastian (Vichet Chum), has perished in the wreck. To survive, she disguises herself as a young man and begins going by the name of Cesario. She takes a position in the employment of Duke Orsino (Joshua Thomas), who is hopelessly in love with the Lady Olivia (Leslie Ann Handelman). Unfortunately for the duke, Olivia is in mourning for the deaths of her father and brother and refuses to acknowledge his declarations of love. Enter “Cesario” with his silver-tongued protestations on behalf of his master. Olivia soon becomes infatuated with Cesario and tries to create ways for them to meet all while giving his master the brush off. Kimiye Corwin is brilliant in her portrayal of the devoted servant Cesario ardently wooing Olivia all while falling head over heels in love with the duke. Confused yet? On top of everything Olivia is playing host to her layabout uncle, Sir Toby Belch (a

Below, Anderson Matthews (Malvolio) and Eric Hoffmann (Sir Toby Belch) in Shakespeare Festival St. Louis' production of "Twelfth Night." hilariously oafish Eric Hoffmann). The aptlynamed Sir Toby spends all of his time causing mischief with his fellow houseguest and drinking buddy, Sir Andrew Aguecheek (Haas Regen). Hoffmann and Regen are a hoot to watch as they drink, sing and carouse onstage. Joining them are Olivia’s straight-talking handmaid Maria (Candice Jeanine) and the fool Feste (Andy Paterson). On more than one occasion, Paterson enchanted the audience with his beautiful voice. He was accompanied by the live music of the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra. Their music provided a

wonderful and at times haunting soundtrack to the show. Together, Sir Toby, Aguecheek, Maria and Feste have a grand old time convincing Olivia’s stick-in-the-mud steward Malvolio (a gleefully cantankerous Anderson Matthews) that she’s in love with him. Cue a hilarious scene involving Matthews and a pair of blinding yellow stockings. Eventually, we learn that Sebastian isn’t dead after all. He was rescued by the pirate sea captain Antonio, who follows him to Illyria. While exploring the island, Sebastian

meets Olivia and is captivated by her beauty. Fortunately for him, he looks just like his twin “Cesario” who Olivia is already in love with. Sparks fly between the two and Olivia finally gets her man. The sexual tension running through the play crackles in its intensity. Whether it is between Cesario and Olivia, Cesario and Duke Orsino or even Antonio and Sebastian, everybody gets caught up in the heady romance of it all. This is most apparent during a climactic kiss between Corwin (dressed as Cesario) and Thomas that drew gasps and whistles from the audience. Boy, girl, whatever. These two characters had the hots for each other, and the heat could be felt from the back row. “Twelfth Night” continues Shakespeare Festival St. Louis’ record for creating high quality productions. Dildine’s expert direction succeeds in bringing out the best in his cast. This is especially true of Corwin, Jeanine and Matthews, who all manage to deliver their lines with effortless clarity and feeling. By the conclusion, all the confusion is cleared up and everyone ends up with the right partner. Even bumbling Sir Toby finds a wife in the sympathetic Maria. Everyone that is, except for poor Malvolio and his yellow socks. Performances are at 8 p.m. nightly (except Tuesdays). Green Show performances are at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free. Shakespeare Glen is located on the east side of Art Hill in Forest Park (between the Saint Louis Art Museum and the St. Louis Zoo, just off Fine Arts Drive). Parking is available on the street throughout Forest Park and the various lots at the Zoo and the Muny. Seating at the festival is first-come, firstserved on the open lawn, so bring your blanket or lawn chair and choose your own spot. A limited number of rental chairs are set up in the front center section of the audience and are available for $10 and $7 each. To rent seats, visit the Information tent in the Festival Lobby between 5:30 and 8 p.m. Concessions are available for purchase or bring your own picnic.

Kemper to feature Contemporary German art In Beijing (2010), German photographer Andreas Gursky depicts China’s famous “Bird’s Nest” stadium, a spectacular structure designed for the 2008 Olympics by Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, with Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei. Yet to create the image, Gursky digitally combined multiple viewpoints, emphasizing the building’s complex beam structure but also distorting the viewer’s perspective and freeing the final work from its reference to the actual building. In May, the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum will feature Beijing in Contemporary German Art: Selections from the Permanent Collection, an exhibition that highlights 16 largescale works, all completed within the last 12 years by artists living and working in Germany. The exhibition complements the opening of a major expansion to the Saint Louis Art Museum, which will showcase its


own holdings of postwar German art. The exhibit will run through Sept. 7. Though all of these artists work within the context of a reunified democratic Germany, none overtly dwell on German history or national identity—nor do they demonstrate a shared visual style or singular medium, as did the socalled German neo-Expressionists in the 1980s. Rather, these artists strongly underscore their own artistic voices and individual concerns. Their artworks, similarities notwithstanding, are principally borne out of difference. Some, such as Ackermann and the late Majerus, expand the medium of painting into the realm of installation art, endowing it with a monumental presence and stability that reflects but also stands in counterpoint to the global digital revolution. Others, such as Wasmuht, revise the postmodernist strategy of appropriation to create entirely new image worlds—worlds that emphasize slowness in both their conception and perception. Just as the medium of painting is turned upside down and inside out, so too is the practice of photography. Tillmans, for example, creates largescale photographs without the use of a camera, while Demand’s practice of documenting temporary sculptures results in photographs that lack a real-world referent. Bayrle—a major figure within postwar German art, who nevertheless remains overlooked internationally— bridges photography, printmaking and sculpture. In Sun Yat-sen, he silkscreens an iconic portrait of the Chinese revolutionary onto a three-dimensional relief of wood and cardboard that suggests both highway structures and collectivist networks.

kin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer. You’re at higher risk if you have fair skin, light or red hair, blue or green eyes, or excessive lifetime sun exposure. Skin cancer can occur anywhere on the body, but it is most common in skin that has been exposed to sunlight, such as the face, neck, Noor Ahmed, MD Plastic Surgeon hands, and arms. The earlier skin cancer is found, the better the outcome. If you’re concerned about skin cancer, particularly on your face and hands, call for an appointment for a free skin cancer screening with Dr. Noor Ahmed. Dr. Ahmed will examine suspicious areas on the face, hands or other exposed areas. This is not a full body screening. Space is limited so call early.

Total knee replacement is intended for use in individuals with joint disease resulting from degenerative, rheumatoid, and post-traumatic arthritis, and for moderate deformity of the knee. As with any surgery, knee replacement surgery has serious risks which include, but are not limited to, blood clots, stroke, heart attack, and death. Implant related risks which may lead to a revision include dislocation, loosening, fracture, nerve damage, heterotopic bone formation (abnormal bone growth in tissue), wear of the implant, metal sensitivity, soft tissue imbalance, osteolysis (localized progressive bone loss), and reaction to particle debris.The information presented is for educational purposes only. Knee implants may not provide the same feel or performance characteristics experienced with a normal healthy joint. Speak to your doctor to decide if joint replacement surgery is appropriate for you. Individual results vary and not all patients will return to the same activity level. The lifetime of any device is limited and depends on several factors like weight and activity level. Your doctor will help counsel you about strategies to potentially prolong the lifetime of the device, including avoiding high-impact activities, such as running, as well as maintaining a healthy weight. Ask your doctor if the GetAroundKnee is right for you.
