On the Edge of the Weekend

June 20, 2013


People A unique boutique in a quaint little town

Lillians of Lebanon

By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge Area women with an eye for fashion now have somewhere closer to home to shop for unique outfits and accessories guaranteed to stand out from run-of-the-mill mall offerings. Until recently, women had two choices for clothes in this area: head to the mall or head to St. Louis. The former has been a go-to favorite for many shoppers, but often lacks individuality and a personal touch. On the other hand, St. Louis has many independent boutiques, but requires a trip into the city. Lillians of Lebanon, located at 106 Wakanda Drive, in Lebanon, aims to combine those ideas together into an upscale and personalized shopping experience closer to home. Owner Amanda Oelze opened the store on June 5, which welcomed around 100 people curious to see what this new store had to offer. The Lillians franchise began in 2005 as the brainchild of two sisters, Cindy Dueser and Sue Olmscheid. They opened the very first Lillians in Buffalo, Minn., and named it after their grandmother. Since then, the company has spread throughout the Midwest with 27 stores located in eight states. The company operates on a 4-day sale concept, and all of its franchise owners are women. Oelze, who is originally of Louisville, Ky., and now lives in Damiansville, felt like the time was right to open her own business. She and a family friend previously owned and operated a sunglasses chain called [Cool Shades]. They sold name brand sunglasses across three locations. Oelze sold the business when her family moved to Denver, Colo. Over the next few years Oelze kept busy studying for her degree in nutrition and dietetics. It was around the time she graduated that she began to think seriously about opening a franchise. She and her husband knew they wanted a family

Lillians of Lebanon owner Amanda Oelze shows off a selection of jewelry. someday, and the idea of running her own store was appealing. So she started researching different franchise options and found out about Lillians. The company and its ideals was a perfect fit for Oelze. “I’ve always enjoyed making women feel good whether it’s through nutrition and exercise or fashion. I always thought when I was looking out for different franchises, I was just impressed by Lillian’s because all of the owners are women and it’s more like a sisterhood. If I need any kind of help I can send out an email and in 10 seconds I have all the store owners giving me suggestions. We really have a strong support team,” said Oelze. Finding a location for the store

was easy. Oelze had worked in Lebanon and was familiar with the quaint university town. Its blend of eclectic shops and restaurants combined with nearby McKendree University was the perfect match for Oelze’s vision of a fashionable clothing boutique. Oelze also felt the area needed more choices when it came to clothes shopping. “When I moved here, you (had) to shop at the mall or go through different parts of St. Louis. So, I really wanted to offer this to the community because I felt like we would do really well in this area, and we’re one of a kind because you just don’t have this option,” she said.

Lillians of Lebanon is the company’s 17th store, and the only one in Illinois. Its nearest sister location is in St. Charles. However, don’t let the name lead you to think all Lillians are the same. Each franchise owner designs and stocks her own store. Oelze worked hard to make her Lebanon store reflect community around it. She personally selected and refinished all but one of the pieces of antique furniture that decorate the store. Refinished antique crib rails display jewelry on the walls and her greatgrandmother’s chest graces the store as well. Oelze said she sourced many of the store’s furnishings from antique stores in Lebanon, as well as The Treasure House in

June 20, 2013

Edwardsville. The store carries merchandise from 156 brands chosen by the corporate owners in Minnesota. Oelze said franchise owners then select the items they wish to carry in their individual stores. ‘Once it’s approved, we have an online system that I can use to do all of my buying. So that’s how I am able to get everything in here so quickly.We are carrying 12 to 14 different clothing brands in our store right now,” said Oelze. Some of the brands she carries include Angie, Blu Pepper, Mikarose, Shiraleah handbags, Izzy & Ali handbags, Esley, Elan, Dear John denim, KUT denim and Last Tango. Oelze only orders six to 10 pieces of each item, giving shoppers confidence that their purchases won’t be worn by everyone. Sizes will range from XS to XXXL. As of press time, the largest size in the store was an XL. The merchandise is a mix of breezy dresses, skirts and blouses in a variety of colors and funky patterns. Some items are right on trend while other pieces are suited to more traditional tastes. “We do have more conservative brands from designers that we can carry for someone that shies away from too much trend. I feel like the reason people would want to come here is because we have so many different pieces. We are always changing because we always have shipments coming in. You can buy something here and not go out and see 12 other people wearing it because I only order six. So they can feel confident that they’re going to have unique fashion,” said Oelze. Lillians of Lebanon is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Friday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Religion Religion briefs Humanist group sues Lake Elsinore for funding planned veterans’ monument with cross LAKE ELSINORE, Calif. (AP) — A humanist group is suing a California city for funding a monument depicting a soldier kneeling at a cross. The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that the American Humanist Association served Lake Elsinore with the suit on Monday. The suit claims the Riverside County community violated the separation of church and state by agreeing to pay $50,000 to create a monument with a soldier kneeling before a cross-topped grave. The veterans’ monument would be placed in front of the city’s Diamond Stadium. City Councilman Brian Tisdale says the design shows a World War II soldier mourning a comrade and isn’t meant to be religious. However, William Burgess of the

humanist group says it still comes down to a government putting a religious symbol on public property.

A series of bloody sectarian attacks made April and May the deadliest months in years.

Iraqi Shiite pilgrims converge on Baghdad shrine; tight security after deadly attacks

New research: US Amish groups might appear alike, yet sects have differences

BAGHDAD (AP) — Tens of thousands of Shiite pilgrims were converging on a golden-domed Shiite shrine in northern Baghdad to commemorate the death of a revered Shiite Muslim saint. Security is tight after a wave of deadly attacks. Interior Ministry spokesman Lt. Col. Saad Maan Ibrahim said Tuesday that several thousand policemen and soldiers were deployed in Baghdad to secure the processions. Pilgrims have to undergo several searches before reaching the gates of Imam Moussa al-Kadhim shrine. Many of the main streets in the capital have been closed in recent days to prevent attacks on the walking pilgrims. No significant attacks have been reported, Ibrahim said.

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — Conservative Amish groups have larger families than other Amish and their children are far less likely to leave the church, a trend that is expected to bring dramatic changes for them in the coming years, according to a book on the distinctive religious group being published this week. “The Amish,” a 500-page overview of the Christian followers known for traditional dress and the use of horseand-buggy transportation, identified 40 distinct groups and a variety of

permitted practices. “They may all look alike on the outside from an external perspective, but the fact of the matter is there are over 2,000 different ways of expressing Amishness in terms of daily practice,” said co-author Don Kraybill, senior fellow at Elizabethtown College’s Young Center for Anabaptist and Pietist Studies. The researchers found that more traditional Amish have families of nine or 10 children, while comparatively progressive families are just over half that size, suggesting some are using birth control.

Czech court upholds plan to compensate religious groups PRAGUE (AP) — The Czech Republic’s highest court on Monday upheld a government plan to pay

billions of dollars to religious groups in compensation for property the country’s former Communist regime seized from them. The ruling is a big victory for the country’s churches, which have been fighting since the 1989 fall of communism to get back assets such as farms, woodlands and buildings that have remained in the state’s hands. Under the plan, 16 religious groups — including Catholics, Protestants and Jews — will get 59 billion koruna ($3 billion) in compensation over the next 30 years. They will also get 56 percent of their former property now held by the state — estimated to be worth 75 billion koruna ($3.8 billion). The state, meanwhile, will gradually stop covering church expenses over the next 17 years. The Constitutional Court rejected an appeal by the republic’s left-wing opposition.

“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 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 time-travel 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.

"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

On the Edge of the Weekend

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.

“The Internship”

There are really three movie stars headlining this movie: Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and Google. Actually, it’s a surprise Google doesn’t get top billing over the humans, so adoringly is the company displayed. But if you can get past this Mother of All Product Placements, you’ll likely find yourself chuckling a lot during Shawn Levy’s silly but warmhearted film, with a script by Vaughn and Jared Stern. Sure, it could be shorter, less predictable, more believable. But this is Vaughn and Wilson, and if their onscreen banter doesn’t quite live up to the 2005 “Wedding Crashers,” it’s still pretty darned funny. Billy (Vaughn) and Nick (Wilson), watch salesmen, lose their jobs, and implausibly apply for an unpaid internship at Google. Which they implausibly get. (Their job interview, via video chat, is one of the funniest scenes.) A stern supervisor (the terrific Aasif Mandvi) describes the “Hunger Games”-like contest ahead, with only the winning intern team attaining Google employment. (Perhaps because Google helped out with the film, it is never once questioned that this is the ultimate place to work — from the free food to the nap pods to the adult-sized slides.) Generation gap jokes abound. Vaughn’s Billy keeps saying “on the line” instead of “online” — really, if he knew enough about Google to apply there, wouldn’t he know the term “online”? Still, it’s amusing. Will Billy and Nick survive their trial-by-technology? Do we really need to ask? RATED: PG-13 for sexuality, some crude humor, partying and language. RUNNING TIME: 119 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Much Ado About Nothing”

Joss Whedon’s bare-bones contemporary adaptation is the cinematic equivalent of Shakespeare in the parking lot — and proof, again, that it doesn’t take much doing to bring Shakespeare to life. Whedon shot his “Much Ado” at his Los Angeles home over just 12 days immediately after production for a slightly larger film he directed: “The Avengers.” It’s almost surely the only time the Bard has been performed with a suburban golf course in the background. The verbal duel of “Much Ado” pits the proud bachelor Benedick (Alexis Denisof) against the quicktongued Beatrice (Amy Acker), as they sling clever put-downs back and forth, even as they’re drawn together by their scheming friends. Most of the cast (including, memorably, Nathan Fillion as the bumbling Constable Dogberry and Clark Gregg as the governor Leonato) are long-time Whedonites, veterans from his

June 20, 2013

TV shows (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) and films. One would expect Whedon, given his knack for wordplay, to highlight the verbal joisting and really chew the play’s choice lines. But much of the acting doesn’t make the language pop (Denisof is particularly without snap) and the wan black-and-white photography bleaches the play of its snappiness. Acker gives a likable and lithe performance, even if its lacks the commanding presence Beatrice deserves. More effort, it feels, went into making the play feel natural than making it sing. This “Much Ado” (for which Whedon also composed the music) is best considered a charming dress rehearsal. RATED: PG-13 for some sexuality and brief drug use. RUNNING TIME: 109 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and half stars out of four.

“The Bling Ring”

Given that the film currently ruling the box office is about Americans encouraged by their government to indulge their homicidal urges one night a year — we’re talking about “The Purge” — it’s tempting to hail the clueless young burglars in “The Bling Ring” as veritable humanitarians. After all, they’re not out to kill or even hurt anyone. All they want is your designer shoes, your cute tops, your Rolex watches, your cash. And if you’re not a hot young celebrity they’ll leave you alone anyway. Not that Sofia Coppola’s latest film, based on a true story, isn’t chilling. It is, and not only because it displays the soulless nature of our fame-obsessed youth culture. It’s also that Coppola doesn’t judge these kids. It’s intentional, but it makes the whole enterprise a little depressing. Coppola bases her movie on a 2010 Vanity Fair article about the socalled Bling Ring, a group of mostly 19-year-olds who stole some $3 million in jewelry and designer goods from Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and others. It’s obvious that Coppola knows this milieu, what these kids wear and how they speak. Coppola has chosen newcomers for leads, and gives her most famous cast member, Emma Watson, a supporting role. She’s by far the most fun to watch. RATED: R for teen drug and alcohol use, and language including brief sexual references. RUNNING TIME: 90 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“Man of Steel”

It has been a black eye for Hollywood that throughout this, the unending and increasingly repetitive age of the superhero blockbuster, the most iconic son of the comics has eluded its grasp like a bird or, if you will, a plane. New hopes of boxoffice riches and franchise serials rest on Zac Snyder’s latest attempt to put Superman back into flight. But Snyder’s joyless film, leaden as if composed of the stuff of its hero’s metallic nickname, has nothing soaring about it. Flying men in capes is grave business in Snyder’s solemn Superman, an origin tale of the DC Comics hero that goes more than two hours before the slightest joke or smirk. This is not your Superman of red tights, phone booth changes, or fortresses of solitude, but one of Christ imagery, Krypton politics and spaceships. Beefy Brit Henry Cavill inherits the cape, with Russell Crowe and Ayelet Zurer serving as his Krypton parents, and Kevin Costner (back among the corn stalks) and Diane Lane as his earthly ones. When General Zod (Michael Shannon) comes to Earth, Clark Kent must embrace his previously hidden away powers. Snyder (“300”) doesn’t have the material or inclination to make his grim film as thought-provoking as “The Dark Knight” by Christopher Nolan (a producer here). The gravity that cloaks this Superman is merely an en vogue costume. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language. RUNNING TIME: 144 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

This film publicity image released by 20th Century Fox shows Owen Wilson, right, and Vince Vaughn in a scene from "The Internship."

"The Internship" silly but fun By JOCELYN NOVECK Associated Press T h e re a re re a l l y t h re e m o v i e s t a r s headlining "The Internship": Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and Google. Actually, it's a surprise Google doesn't get top billing over the humans, so adoringly is the company displayed. But if you can get past this Mother of All Product Placements, you'll likely find yourself chuckling a lot during this silly but warmhearted film, directed by Shawn Levy. Sure, it could be shorter, the script less predictable, the action (much) more believable. But hey, this is Vaughn and Wilson, and if

their onscreen banter doesn't quite live up to the riotous 2005 "Wedding Crashers," it's still pretty darned funny. These two may be woefully inept at technology — or at least, their characters in the film are. But chemistry? That Vaughn and Wilson have down. The premise, like the whole movie, is farfetched but enjoyable. Billy (Vaughn) and Nick (Wilson) are watch salesmen. On a client call, they discover their company has shut down. Their own boss (John Goodman, appearing too briefly) thinks they're dinosaurs. And so, of course, they apply for an unpaid internship at Google. Huh? There was nothing else they could think of?

Better to repress such logic-driven questions. Soon, the two are interviewing — via video chat — for the job, and here the actors are at their best, talking over each other as the duo improvises hysterical answers to geeky questions. They get the job — diversity, wouldn't ya know. At orientation, a stern taskmaster (a seriously funny Aasif Mandvi), describes the "Hunger Games"-like ordeal ahead: a set of challenges, with only the winning team attaining Google employment. Perhaps because Google helped out with the film, it is never once questioned that this is the ultimate place to work. From the free food to the nap pods to the driverless cars to

the adult-sized slides, and the always sunny days, this is the Shangri-La of the corporate world. No wonder a woman as beautiful as Rose Byrne, who plays Nick's love interest, works there. As Billy and Nick endure coding seminars and the like, evoking sneers from the brilliant, obnoxious youths around them, jokes about the generation gap abound. Implausibly, Vaughn's Billy keeps saying "on the line" instead of "online" — really, if he knew enough about Google to apply there, wouldn't he know the term "online"? Still, it's amusing. And he does seem stuck in 1983, so obsessed is he with the film "Flashdance."

"The Purge" a surprisingly good flick By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge A simple, but stunning film came out of nowhere to capture the box office crown this weekend and sell a lot more tickets than anyone thought it would. Marketed incorrectly as a horror film, "The Purge" is fine political allegory hiding under the guise of a well-made home invasion thriller. More is the point that while the movie is chock full of blood and anger, it is also rich in commentary on the state of our country and the dangerous – to many – path on which we are headed as a nation divided still by race, wealth, and moral belief. "The Purge" is set decades into the future of the United States where the “new” founding fathers have pulled us out of the crime-ridden,

unemployment-rich wasteland that it feels we sometimes see around us every day. To do so this factional government, in some type of unseen coup, created a new vision for America where we can eliminate the bad things we don’t like about our flawed human characteristics by annually cleansing our souls through a rite called The Purge. For twelve hours each year – sundown to sunup – a moratorium is put in place for all crime to be condoned, even sanctioned. Emergency services are suspended. Firefighters, paramedics, and police officers get one night off to prepare, one would think, for a messy cleanup the next morning. The poor and helpless are easy prey for the wealthy and/or psychotic population that takes on a spirit of the hunt, looking for trouble

and catharsis. Others well up in their homes, protected by elaborate security systems and perimeter defenses. Such is the case of the movie’s subjects, the Sandin family. James Sandin (Ethan Hawke) is the patriarch of a successful family brought into prominence by his strong sales career in home protection. On the day of the annual Purge, James is delighted to be notified that his stellar quarter has made him the leading broker in his firm, a status that he decides to celebrate by having a nice dinner with his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their two children, Zoey (Adelaide Kane) and Charlie (Max Burkholder, a better actor on NBC’s Parenthood than in this film). As they dine, "The Purge" begins and they lock down their home with steel plates descending over doors

and windows and a whole array of surveillance cameras springing to life to monitor the grounds and the neighborhood where the likes of Mr. Cali (Tom Yi) and Mrs. Ferrin (Arija Bareikis) are preparing for the hunt or hosting Purge Parties where the mayhem around the country can be seen on closed-circuit television feeds. The activity in the Red States is particularly fierce. While James and Mary try to have a normal evening, and Charlie and Zoey protest/pout in their rooms, the night takes a bizarre turn. The emotionally conflicted Charlie let’s a wounded stranger (Edwin Hodge) take sanctuary in their home and Zoey’s too-much-older boyfriend (Rhys Wakefield) reveals that he’s snuck into the Sandin home with multiple bad intentions on his

June 20, 2013

agenda. Violence flares up between all parties rather quickly, but it’s the slowly encroaching din of gunfire that really amps up the thriller element of this picture. In fact, it’s not until a band of misfit “hunters” shows up demanding the release of the wounded stranger that things take on the creepy element that I’ve been unable to shake. Led by a masked, machete-wielding sociopath (Tony Oller), the murderous students only reveal their worst sides once they’ve shown the true and hideous faces. The steel reinforced doors, of course, don’t hold and mayhem quite spectacularly ensues. "The Purge" runs 100 minutes and is rated R for strong disturbing violence and some language. I give this film two and a half stars out of four.

The Arts EAC plans multi-media exhibit By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge

T

he beauty of nature and its enduring ability to inspire will be the focus of the next Edwardsville Art Center show, “In Fine Feather,” featuring work from area artists in multiple mediums. “In Fine Feather” opens June 21 with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The show runs through July 19. Curators and Board Directors Pat Quinn and Dennis DeToye explained the purpose of the show is to highlight artwork depicting nature’s flora and fauna. They said the show is a follow up to last year ’s hugely successful “Folk, Fiber and Flowers” exhibition. That show differed slightly because it included floral arrangements created by regional florists, which were raffled off at the show’s conclusion. “In Fine Feather” will once again highlight the wonders of nature, but it will not include the floral arrangements.

“This year we wanted to recreate a similar show but really focus on birds, gardens and nature and less on the folk part of it,” said Quinn. The show will feature work from a variety of mediums. This includes ceramics, watercolor, basket weaving, photography and jewelry. More than dozen regional artists are participating in the show. They are: Susan Bostwick, ceramics; David Yates, paintings; Ruth Reese, ceramics; Mary Patterson, ceramics; Scott Evers, photography; Carol Ross, ceramics; Rebecca Grant, ceramics; Janice Scherer, paintings; Marilyn Mattlage Callahan, 2-D and 3-D; Jill Schwear, jewelry; Tanya Varble, sculpture and 2-D; Russell Vanecek, paintings; and Yvette Booker, baskets. Quinn added that she was particularly excited to show the work of two of those artists, Janice Scherer and Marilyn Mattlage Callahan. Both artists are new to showing their work at the EAC. “Marilyn does these exotic, bright, bold pastels,” said Quinn. “I saw her work in St. Louis recently, and it’s really vibrant and prism-like." DeToye also praised the work of ceramics artist Ruth Reese. “Her pieces almost look like they’re jeweled,” said DeToye. “I showed with her at a gallery, and she just stole the show.” Both Quinn and DeToye said that a

Unlike some shows, which are more about featuring “art for art’s sake,” this show is all about beautiful and functional pieces that will complement any home. “We have this debate on the board a lot about what is fine art and craft art,” said DeToye. “That’s a healthy discussion. What kind of work do you show in a gallery? And what kind of work do you show in a gallery like this?” He explained that the EAC board always strives to achieve a good balance of art that will appeal to both niche and wider audiences. “We have a student population that we’re trying to serve and a lot of times the kids really like the high art. In the show that just concluded, we had a lot of students in, and they were writing papers about it,” said DeToye. “Our focus is showing off that larger community of artists and artisans. I think having that variety continues to be our focus,” added Quinn. DeToye described all of the pieces in this show as “very approachable” with most priced at $500 or less. They are also smaller works that buyers can easily transport. “These are pieces you can definitely buy, take home and put up,” DeToye said. This show, along with the annual Christmas Grab-n-Go show, is also one of a handful of opportunities throughout the

10

On the Edge of the Weekend

June 20, 2013

year for the EAC to make money. Quinn pointed out that the EAC relies totally on membership and sales of artwork. Without those two sources of income, the art center would not be able to meet its overhead costs. DeToye added that many people in the community might not realize that the EAC is totally self-supporting and does not receive any direct funds from the school district. He said the district does provide the gallery’s space, which he called a “tremendous support,” but noted that the center is otherwise financially independent. Quinn said the partnership goes both ways though. “The balance is that we are giving the students from K through 12 the opportunity to have a professional gallery here for them and an opportunity to experience what it’s like to have their work in a professional setting,” she said. The work of Edwardsville High School graduate Gwen Porter will be exhibited in the student gallery. Porter is currently a student at SIUE. The EAC, located at 6165 Center Grove Road (on the campus of Edwardsville High School), is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and is closed Sunday through Tuesday. Call the EAC for more information at 655-0337 or visit the center ’s website at www.edwardsvilleartscenter.com.


The Arts Stages St. Louis to present the timeless classic By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge A pumpkin, a pair of glass slippers and a few magic words are all it takes to transform one young girl into everybody’s favorite princess. Dreams really do come true this summer when Stages St. Louis presents the classic fairy tale about a poor servant girl who wins the heart of a prince with “Disney’s Cinderella” playing June 19 through 30 at the Skip Viragh Center for the Arts at Chaminade College Preparatory School. Most little girls go through a Cinderella phase. Years ago, all it took was a piece of aluminum foil to turn regular shoes into sparkling glass slippers. Nowadays, a perfect replica of Cinderella’s famous icy blue ball gown and delicate slippers are available from any discount store. Make time to remember the magic when Disney’s most famous princess comes to life on stage. Poor Cinderella has been forced to work as a servant in her own home by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. All hope of happiness seems lost when she is denied the chance to attend the Royal Ball. That is, until her Fairy Godmother appears, waves her magic wand and – bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! – Cinderella is transformed into a beautiful

princess. Thanks to a convenient pumpkin and a few friendly mice, Cinderella arrives at the ball and catches the eye of the handsome Prince Charming. Stages’ enchanting production includes the original film’s bestloved songs such as “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes,” “BibbidiBobbidi-Boo,” and many others. The fairy tale’s enduring appeal began when Walt Disney’s animated feature, “Cinderella,” premiered in 1950. It was Disney’s second animated princess film, with the first being the groundbreaking “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Sixty years on and the film continues to delight generation after generation of little princesses. Of course, the legend of Cinderella goes back centuries. Disney reportedly based his ragsto-riches princess tale on the story, “Cendrillon,” written by Charles Perrault in 1697. Over the years there have been many stage and film interpretations of Cinderella, but it is the Disney film that most of us grew up with and remember best. St. Louis actress Becca Andrews will star as Cinderella. The Webster Conservatory graduate was last seen in Stages 2011 production of “A Chorus Line.” Her other credits include “Carousel,” “The Children's Hour” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.”

Joe Grandy will co-star as Andrews’ Prince Charming. Grandy was last seen in Stages 2012 production of “My One and Only.” His regional credits include “Singin' in the Rain” and “Gypsy.” St. Louis-based actress Pamela Reckamp will return to Stages to wave her magic wand as the Fairy Godmother. Audiences saw her last in the 2012 Stages productions of “Disney's The Jungle Book” and “The Sound of Music.” The show will also feature Yvette Lu, from Parkway West High School, who will make her Stages debut.

Dance St. Louis announces 2013-14 season Dance St. Louis announces its full 2013-2014 season, which features eight captivating, entertaining and versatile productions. The upcoming 48th season includes: PNC Arts Alive New Dance Horizons II, Shanghai Ballet in The Butterfly Lovers, Wizard of Oz by Ballet Memphis, Diavolo, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, the 7th Annual SPRING TO DANCE FESTIVAL 2014 and two co-presentations with the U.S. Bank Broadway Series at the Fox Theatre—Chicago and Evita. Season ticket packages are currently on sale and single tickets sales for certain shows will go on sale on September 3, 2013. Chicago September 20-22, 2013 Fox Theatre Murder. Greed. Corruption. Violence. Exploitation. Adultery. Treachery. Set amidst the razzledazzle decadence of the 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who maliciously murders her onthe-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids. Chicago, which opened to rave reviews on November 14, 1996, now has the distinction of being the longest running American musical in Broadway history and fourth longest-running production in Broadway history. PNC Arts Alive New Dance Horizons II

October 4 & 5, 2013 Touhill Performing Arts Center It’s a Dance St. Louis tradition in the making! After a successful inaugural year, PNC Arts Alive New Dance Horizons returns with an entirely new set of choreographers contributing to the Dance St. Louis-commissioned production where four nationally renowned choreographers collaborate with four local professional dance companies to create four world premieres. Common Thread Contemporary Dance Company performs new works by Uri Sands, former Alvin Ailey principal dancer and founder of Minneapolis-based TU Dance. The evocative, Washington D.C.-based visionary Nejla Yatkin choreographs a piece for Leverage Dance Theater. The world-renowned Connecticutbased company of dancer-athletes, Pilobolus, collaborates with MADCO. Evita October 8-20, 2013 Fox Theatre Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tony Award-winning musical comes to the Fox. Directed by Michael Grandage and choreographed by Rob Ashford, this stunning new production of Evita tells the story of Eva Perón, who used her beauty and charisma to rise meteorically from the slums of Argentina to the presidential mansion as First Lady. Adored by her people as a champion for the poor, she became one of the most powerful women in the world — while her greed, outsized ambition and fragile health made her one of the most tragic. Shanghai Ballet in The Butterfly Lovers November 8 & 9, 2013

Touhill Performing Arts Center With the arrival of spring comes the blossoming of young love in the Shanghai Ballet’s production of The Butterfly Lovers. Often considered the Chinese equivalent to Romeo and Juliet, the piece, choreographed by company director Xin Lili, premiered in December 2001 at the Third Shanghai International Art Festival. The legend relates the story of a young woman named Zhu, who disguises herself as a man to obtain admittance to school. She falls in love with schoolmate Liang, but her betrothal to the evil and violent Ma complicates her feelings for Liang. Wizard of Oz with Ballet Memphis January 24-26, 2014 Touhill Performing Arts Center A journey down the yellow brick road has led Dorothy and her beloved trio of friends to the stage in a new adaptation of the family favorite, Wizard of Oz. A whirlwind away from Kansas, Dorothy and her motley group of friends embark on an adventure t o t h e E m e r a l d C i t y, e a c h i n search of something different: a brain, a heart, courage and home. Choreographed by one of Ballet Memphis' own members, Scotland native and choreographic associate Steven McMahon, Ballet Memphis premiered the original production in 2007. Diavolo February 28 & March 1, 2014 Touhill Performing Arts Center Diavolo—one of the West Coast’s most prominent dance companies and a designated cultural treasure of the City of Los Angeles—makes its way to St. Louis for a thrilling, playful and gravity-defying performance. Composed of modern

dancers, athletes, gymnasts, ballet dancers, martial artists, actors and stunt performers, Diavolo pushes the boundaries of dance through its dynamic movement and signature use of colossal set pieces, including s k a t e b o a rd r a m p s , a 1 5 - f o o t staircase, an 18-foot aluminum and steel spinning wheel and a giant cube that turns into a pyramid. Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater April 25 & 26, 2014 Fox Theatre Beloved as one of the world’s most popular and iconic dance companies, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is one of the few companies today that needs no introduction. Brilliant and electrifying, strong and regal, ethereal and breathtaking, the elegant and athletic dancers of the Ailey company are trailblazers of concert dance. Recipient of the National Medal of Arts in 2002 and recognized in 2008 by a U.S. Congressional resolution as “a vital American cultural ambassador to the world,” Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater has performed for an estimated 23 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents as well as millions more through television broadcasts. 7th Annual SPRING TO DANCE FESTIVAL 2014 May 22-24, 2014 Touhill Performing Arts Center The Memorial Day Weekend tradition returns for its three-night dance extravaganza. 30 professional dance companies from across the country perform a variety of works from contemporary and classical to modern, tap and more for only $15 a night.

The Arts Artistic adventures Zoo offers eco-friendly works of art Visitors to the Saint Louis Zoo can purchase a range of environmentally friendly products hand-crafted by artisans in developing nations across the globe. Purchase of these products not only supports the Zoo’s conservation efforts, but it also helps eradicate poverty in developing countries. “These eco-friendly products help eliminate wastes by repurposing recycled materials, and they help empower artists in developing nations, who can now provide for their families thanks to our visitors’ purchases,â€? says Tommy Brown, Zoo Gift Shop Manager/Buyer. He also serves as Vice President of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums Buyers Group, representing over 350 zoo and aquarium buyers worldwide. Conservation commerce sections of the Zoo’s Tree Top Shop in The Living World, and Safari Gift Shop at the South Entrance, offer a range of interesting items for the home, personal accessories, collectibles, art, jewelry and much more. • Metal sculptures in the shape of animals are made from wire recycled from snares once used to kill animals.  • Kenyan carvings are produced from sustainable, recycled materials that are harvested legally and in an ecologically friendly way.  • Elegant glass sun-catchers and figurines designed to capture nature’s marvels come from small studios in Ecuador. These and other glass pieces are made in part with recycled glass gathered in landfills to help protect children from broken glass as they hunt through these wastelands for aluminum and food scraps.     • Animal sculptures of rhinos, ostriches and giraffes are made by Indonesian and Kenyan artists using discarded plastic and soda cans.  • A u t o p a r t s a re t h e c o re component in hand-crafted Kenyan animal sculptures, with spark plugs and pieces of chain transformed into dragon flies, tarantulas and spiders. • Intricate puzzle boxes are decorated with carved owls, elephants and penguins—all made from furniture scraps.  • Carved marble turtles come from enterprising artisans in Ecuador.

Where friends share life and families share peace of mind.

• Many handwoven baskets are from The Blessing Basket Project, dedicated to helping artisans around the world become more financially independent. • Accessories include elegant silk scarves and purses made from discarded saris in India; other bags are hand woven in Peru using natural plant fibers and chemicalfree dies. • Repurposed plastic bottles have been transformed into a zippered child’s purse, while other handbags are created from computer key boards and pop tops. • Jewelry made from tagua nuts helps artists avoid using elephant ivory and rainforest wood for their creations.  • And for something truly unique, the Zoo’s shops carry kinetic gear pendants made in the USA from renewable bamboo.Candy at the Zoo is almost entirely free of palm oil, which is causing the decline of animal and plant species in rainforests since massive trees and foliage are being cleared to make way for palm tree plantations.  Finally, water conservation is encouraged with the sale of refillable water bottles.  The Zoo even sells Elephant Poo Paper made from elephant poop, which children and adults use for crafts, while helping preserve the endangered Asian Elephant.  The Zoo is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with free admission.

Sculpture Gardens open at LCCC A fanciful menagerie of colorful blossoms on the campus of Lewis and Clark Community College will present a new feature for garden visitors this summer. The newly dedicated Monticello Sculpture Gardens on the college’s G o d f re y c a m p u s w i l l f e a t u re a “Menagerie in Bloom,� with a special selection of plantings in creature form scattered throughout the gardens. “ Wi t h t h e g u i d a n c e o f o u r landscape architects Terra Design, we have chosen a variety of bedding plant favorites whose plant characteristics evoke the images of creatures in our animal kingdom, both real and imagined,� said Lewis and Clark President Dale Chapman. “The special plantings on display this summer are each signified with an interpretive panel, which feature an illustration of the creature for which the plant is named.� The illustrations are original creations by Lewis and Clark Professor Emeritus Patrick Dailey. Black dragons, rosy cheeked angels and a flock of lamb are planted near the Bosque, just outside of the Hatheway Cultural C e n t e r. Ye l l o w d r a g o n s a n d blackbirds have made a home in the terrace area outside of Hatheway, and ostriches and blue mice are growing in the planters on the upper level of Hatheway’s covered patio. Some of the wildest animals are located in The Grove in front of the McPike Math and Science Complex, where tigers, alligators, zebras, stingrays,

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 O l y m p i c s b y S w i s s a rc h i t e c t s 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. I n M a y, t h e M i l d r e d L a n e Kemper Art Museum will feature Beijing in Contemporary G e r m a n A r t : S e l e c t i o n s f ro m the Permanent Collection, an exhibition that highlights 16 large-scale 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 so-called German neo-Expressionists in the 1980s. R a t h e r, t h e s e a r t i s t s s t ro n g l y u n d e r s c o re t h e i r o w n a r t i s t i c 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 t h e re a l m o f i n s t a l l a t i o n a r t , 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 large-scale 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 s c u l p t u re . I n S u n Ya t - s e n , h e silkscreens an iconic portrait of the Chinese revolutionary onto a three-dimensional relief of wood a n d c a rd b o a rd t h a t s u g g e s t s b o t h h i g h w a y s t r u c t u re s a n d collectivist networks. Other artists explore the

incorporation of the everyday i n t o t h e re a l m o f a r t . W h i l e Pernice challenges the readymade as impromptu memorial, Genzken’s use of bits and pieces of the materials of daily life bestows otherwise anonymous sculptures with individuality. Von Bonin and Jensen both create objects made out of commonplace textiles, though their approaches differ: Jensen reworks the legacy of collage and found object artists such as Kurt Schwitters, while von Bonin provocatively employs stitching, dark humor and hermetic meaning to further complicate boundaries between popular culture and so-called high art. Contemporary German Art is curated by Sabine Eckmann, William T. Kemper Director and chief curator. It will be on view from May 3 to Sept. 7, 2013. Contemporary German Art: Selections from the Permanent Collection will open with a public reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 3, and will remain on view through Sept. 7, 2013. Both the reception and the exhibition are free and open to the public. The Kemper Art Museum is located o n Wa s h i n g t o n U n i v e r s i t y ’ s Danforth Campus, immediately adjacent to Steinberg Hall, near the intersection of Skinker and Forsyth boulevards.

Travel There's no place on earth quite like By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge

y the time you read this article, the grass will be lush and pristine, the strawberries will be red and juicy ripe and the crowds will be waiting with anticipation for the oldest and most revered tennis tournament in the world to begin – Wimbledon. This year ’s tournament will take place from June 24 through July 7 at the historic All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club in Wimbledon, London. For many players and fans, this is the most holy of holies when it comes to tennis tournaments. Besides being the only Grand Slam in the world still conducted on grass, Wimbledon also holds the distinction of being steeped in tradition and history dating back to 1877. So you can imagine how thrilling it was for me when the opportunity came along a few years ago to attend this amazing event. I’ve always been a big tennis fan going all the way back to the days when Andre Agassi had hair and lots of it. I remember summers spent glued to the TV for two weeks listening to Chris Evert and John McEnroe dissect the serves, volleys and backhands of the world’s greatest players. I finally got my chance thanks to the company I was working for in England. My company had obtained a few dozen tickets and was planning an organized trip to the Championships. As soon as I found out, I scrambled to get my name on the list. Just to make it clear how difficult it is to get Wimbledon tickets, most people have to line up outside the gates for days for general admission. This is only for the grounds mind you. Court tickets to an actual game are much harder (and much more expensive) to come by.

From the moment we walked through the gates I was in awe. The actual Wimbledon grounds are far bigger than what you see on TV. There are the three main courts: Centre Court, No. 1 Court and No. 2 Court plus all of the minor courts. Then there is “Henman Hill” (or “Murray Mound” if you like), where all of the general admission folks can gather to watch the excitement happening on Centre Court. The entire place has a festival-like atmosphere with groups of people milling about eating strawberries and cream, watching players warm up on the minor courts or simply soaking up the experience – or buying umbrellas. Yes, it rained, and rained and rained. Then it rained some more. My husband and I had brought a picnic lunch with us, which we ate in the tunnels underneath the stands of Centre Court. Dozens of other poor, wet souls were huddled on benches and even the concrete floor to get out of the rain while munching their soggy sandwiches. Still, even that was pretty thrilling when you consider that we could hear the match booming around us. Our tickets were for the Boys’ Singles Final on No. 1 Court the last day of the tournament. We didn’t even care that it wasn’t a major men’s or women’s event. We were just happy to be sitting there, roughly 12 rows back from the front, watching a real, live match at Wimbledon. The young man who won, Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria, was so excited he ran straight into the stands to hug his mother just like in a movie. One aspect of Wimbledon that you won’t notice on TV is how efficient the grounds staff is. This was before the court got its famous sliding roof and every threat of rain meant protecting the grass at all costs. As soon as the drops began to fall, about a dozen guys would sprint out onto the court and drag a protective cover over the

June 20, 2013

in just as good a shape as the players. The ball boys and girls, along with the line judges, were also impressive to watch. Everybody there knew their job down to the last detail and performed it with absolute precision. I still haven’t mentioned the actual date that we attended. It was Sunday, July 6, 2008. Tennis fans should remember this date because it was one for the history books. This was the day when five-time reigning champion Roger Federer faced Rafael Nadal in one of the greatest tennis matches in the history of the sport. First Nadal took the lead after winning the first two sets. Then the rain reared its ugly head again and play was stopped toward the end of the third set. The match resumed more than an hour later and Federer found his groove. He won the next two sets and saved two Championships points in the process. We watched the match on the big screen from Henman Hill with a few thousand other people. Sitting space was at a premium with everyone jammed cheekby-jowl on the grass. It wasn’t the most comfortable moment of our lives by any means, but it was worth it to witness such a historic match. We stayed until the fifth set when another rain delay stopped play just before 8 p.m. At this point, we figured the match would be halted until the next day because the light was nearly gone. Wrong. By the time we got back to the bus, we discovered play had resumed. One of the greatest finals of all time, and we were back on the bus! No matter, the bus driver turned on the radio and we all listened for the next 30 minutes as Nadal and Federer battled for the title. You know how it ends. Nadal finally won 9-7 at 9:15 p.m. in almost complete darkness. The following year a roof and floodlights were installed in Centre Court. We headed home that night exhausted, damp and elated. And the strawberries were pretty good, too.

Wisconsin's crown jewel Madison is much more than a college town By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge

I

f you only think of cheese when you think of Wisconsin, think again. The state capital, Madison, is a hip urban metropolis bursting with history, culture, sports and other attractions, making this city up north worthy of a visit.

Sandwiched between Lakes Mendota and Menona, Madison is located roughly 80 miles west of Milwaukee and 150 miles north of Chicago. In recent years, the city has gained a reputation as one of the best places to live, work and raise a family in the United States. A quick look at its rankings shows that the city has earned an impressive list of accolades. It was listed in the top 10 for “Greatest Cycling Cities” by USA Today in 2011; MSN named it as a “Great Place to Raise a Family” in August, 2012; AARP called it one of its “5 Happiest Cities in America” in August, 2012; Parenting.com ranked it as the “6th Best City for Families” in June, 2011; while Forbes named the city its “3rd Best City for Young Professionals” in July, 2011. But don’t go thinking this city is just for the youngsters. Huffington Post named it as the “Best Place to Retire” in April this year. And the lists just go on and on. Madison truly does offer something for everyone. Visitors can choose from a long list of attractions including art galleries, museums, performing arts, a farmer’s market, zoo, botanical gardens and outdoor sports such as cycling and kayaking. There is also a thriving music scene, a multitude of places to eat and drink and countless shops and boutiques where visitors can browse or buy. Families will love all of the kidfriendly things there are to see and do around the city. The Henry Vilas

Here, visitors will find the usual array of wild animals, birds, reptiles and fish, as well as a fascinating exhibit on exotic endangered frogs. There is also a children’s zoo where kids can have fun feeding the goats, playing on the Tree House and Adventure Play Area or taking a ride on the electric train. Another family favorite is the Madison Children’s Museum. This

On the Edge of the Weekend

hands-on museum is for children ages birth through eight. Its four interactive exhibits are designed to help children explore and understand the world around them. Admission is $4 for everyone 12 months and older. Foodies won’t want to miss the Dane County Farmer’s Market. Stop by early on a Saturday morning, grab a coffee and wander among the nearly 18,000 people who visit the

June 20, 2013

market each week. More than 300 vendors sell everything from fresh produce and herbs to plants and flowers, cheeses and baked goods. Dining in Madison is an adventure for the palate with hundreds of eclectic eateries to choose from. The city is also home to several breweries and wineries so finding something to wash down all that food should be both easy and enjoyable. Those looking to take in some culture during their visit won’t be disappointed. If performing arts are what you’re looking for, then head to the Overture Center for the Arts where you will find 400,000 square feet of space devoted to visual and performing arts. Throughout the year the center hosts traveling performers and exhibitions. The center is also home to 10 resident companies, including the Madison Opera, Madison Repertory Theatre and the Madison Symphony Orchestra. The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art houses nearly 5,000 works of art. Another place worth checking out is the Chazen Museum of Art. The museum is part of the University of Wisconsin features 11 galleries and more than 17,000 works of art from prehistoric times through to the present. In the summer, more than 200,000 art enthusiasts and 500 artisans descend on Madison’s Capitol Square for the city’s annual Art Fair on the Square. History buffs can find out more about the state’s capital at the Wisconsin Historical Museum, conveniently located right on Capitol Square. Here visitors will

learn more about both Wisconsin’s history and American history. Fans of military history will enjoy a visit to the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, which highlights the state’s important military events from the Civil War to the present. Madison is well-known for its wide array of gardens and other green spaces. The Olbrich Botanical Gardens is a great place to spend an afternoon. The garden includes 16 acres of outdoor display gardens, a tropical conservatory and a botanical center. Admission is free. Another place to find beautiful gardens and relaxing outdoor spaces is on the University of Wisconsin-Madison Campus. The Allen Centennial Gardens feature elegant English, Victorian and New American gardens. The garden sits on 2.5 acres that also include the former Victorian home of the university’s deans. The campus also has its own arboretum right in the heart of the city. Walk, run or cycle through its 1,200 acres encompassing native prairie, shore, streams and hundreds of fragrant lilacs. The Greater Madison Convention & Visitors Bureau is the best place to begin planning your own trip to Madison. The website at www.visitmadison.com has listings for hotels, restaurants, attractions and upcoming events. There are even suggested itineraries to make trip planning as easy as possible.

Dining Delights

Fresh takes on summer grilling By KRISTA WILKINSON-MIDGLEY Of The Edge One of the best things about summer is being able to escape from a hot, sticky kitchen and head outside to cook up a tasty meal on the grill. This method of cooking is also surprisingly healthy so long as you choose the right ingredients. And it can also be just as good for your wallet as it is for your waistline when filling vegetables replace meat-loaded recipes. Take grilling up a notch this season by experimenting with new ingredients, flavors and textures. Pizzas move out of the oven and onto the flame while toasted quesadillas with ripe avocados add bold flavors to summer nights. A side of grilled vegetables or fruit will fill the plate with color and nutrients. Classic barbecue favorites get a healthy makeover without sacrificing flavor or satisfaction. Pile burgers high with fresh tomatoes, onions and lettuce and serve on wholegrain buns or flatbreads. Mushrooms are the perfect way to add texture to a burger and introduce some veggie goodness to a dish. These super absorbent little fungi take on the flavor of whatever they are cooked with and can be a useful way to add volume to meals and make portions stretch further.

Simply chop up mushrooms to match the consistency of the ground beef or turkey, combine the meat and mushrooms, and grill up the patty. The result is a leaner, juicy burger with less calories and fat. Getting the most out of your meat is going to be even more important this summer as last year’s recordbreaking drought pushes the price of meat, particularly beef, to its highest level in decades. Plus, the mushrooms deliver important nutrients like vitamin D, B vitamins and antioxidants like selenium and ergothioneine that help maintain a healthy immune system. To get you started, take a look at these recipes courtesy of the Mushroom Council and Flatout Bread. For more meal ideas and information, visit www. mushroominfo.com and www. flatoutbread.com Mushroom Burger Wrap Serves 4 6 ounces white button mushrooms 6 ounces cremini mushrooms 4 2-ounce flatbreads 2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons canola oil 1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese 8 ounces 93-percent lean ground beef 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs 2 teaspoons dried basil or 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

freshly ground black pepper Preheat grill. Chop mushrooms into 1/4-inch pieces. While grill heats, toss mushrooms with oil and season with black pepper. Cook mushrooms in one layer in a grill basket, in batches if necessary. Cook until one side is deep brown, about 4 minutes; turn and cook other side until a similar color is achieved, another 4 minutes. Cooking times may vary. In a large bowl, combine cooked mushrooms, ricotta cheese, ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs and basil. Form mixture into four burgers. Grill burgers over a direct heat for about five to seven minutes on each side, or until done. Serve in Flatout Flatbread or other flatbread. Mushroom Flatout Thin Crust Flatbread Pizza Serves 2 6 ounces white button mushrooms 6 ounces cremini mushrooms 2 12-inch Flatout Light Flatbreads freshly ground black pepper or other flatbread 4 ounces 93-percent lean ground beef 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon dried basil 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese Chop mushrooms into 1/4-inch pieces.

Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add meat and mushrooms and cook, breaking meat into very small bits. Drain. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Remove from heat. In a small bowl, combine ricotta cheese, oregano, and basil. Spread the cheese mixture on two 12-inch flatbreads, dividing evenly. Layer equal amounts of the beef and mushroom mixture on top of the cheese mixture. Sprinkle with the grated cheese. Place pizza directly on the grill and close lid. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until cheese melts and bread is crisp. Grilled Mushroom Quesadillas Serves 6 32 ounces fresh white button mushrooms, sliced 6 Flatout Light Original Flatbreads or other flatbread 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon salt 2 cups (approximately 8 ounces) shredded cheese, such as reducedfat Cheddar and Monterey Jack, plus extra for garnish 2 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced 6 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves (optional) salsa verde and diced tomatoes, for garnish Preheat grill. While grill heats, toss mushrooms with oil and

sprinkle with salt. Cook mushrooms in one layer in a grill basket, in batches if necessary. Cook until one side is deep brown, about 4 minutes; turn and cook other side until a similar color is achieved, another 4 minutes. Cooking times may vary. Assemble quesadillas; distribute half the cheeses and avocado slices on left half of six flatbreads. Distribute cooked mushrooms and cilantro leaves among the flatbreads and top with remaining cheese. Fold flatbreads in half and grill for 2 to 4 minutes with lid closed until cheese begins to melt. Transfer to cutting board, cut into wedges and serve with salsa verde, tomatoes and additional cheese. Hot Grilling Tips • For a fast pizza, throw a flatbread on the grill. Layer with sauce, cheese and mushrooms and cook for 4 minutes or until the cheese melts. • To grill portabella mushrooms, lightly scoop out exposed gills, brush caps with oil or a simple marinade and grill for 4 to 6 minutes each side until they are a dark brown. • Cook delicate varieties of fresh mushrooms and smaller vegetables in a grilling basket to protect them from falling through the grate. • Leave space around each food item on the grill to allow for even cooking and smoke penetration.
