Trash or treasure? Kodner Gallery offering professional appraisals By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Antiques Road Show is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Although I am not a great collector of antiques, I do enjoy them and I do own a few. But the real fun of the show is finding out the value of an item. Many people have items around their house that were either passed down from generation to generation or maybe picked up at an estate or rummage sale and the value or origin is unknown. If you are computer savvy, you can possibly look up the item and find out something about it, but if you don’t know what the item is, who the maker is, or approximately how old it is, that can be a daunting task. Here is your chance to find out more about your family treasure or dusty yard sale find. From 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., on Saturday, June 26, at Congregation Shaare Emeth, located at 11645 Ladue Road, in Creve Coeur, find out if your family heirloom or flea market find is rare or rubbish. “Trash or Treasure,” an appraisal event hosted by Kodner Gallery, will benefit the St. Louis American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA).
The public can bring an item for a “professional opinion of value,” for $35, and $10 for each additional item (up to three). Kodner Gallery, St. Louis’ most trusted name in fine art for more than 40 years and sponsor of the Antiques Road Show, will host more than 12 professional appraisers, with expertise in antiques and collectibles, to evaluate the worth of that treasured object you’ve always wondered about. All proceeds from this event will benefit the St. Louis APDA and Center for Advanced Parkinson Research. “My brother and I get questions all the time about the value of fine art, antiques and other collectibles. We know there are a lot more people out there with similar questions,” said David Kodner, co-owner and director of Kodner Gallery with his brother Jonathan. “We thought, why not bring them together and let them find out if they have a real treasure, and while we’re at it, benefit a cause very close to our hearts,” David added. Jonathan and David will be on hand to appraise paintings, prints and sculpture. Additional appraisers at the event have expertise in a wide range of categories including rare books, sports collectibles,
clocks, furniture, jewelry, coins and many more. Valuations given are professionally estimated opinions and do not represent firm appraisals. Guns, knives, swords or other weapons will not be allowed. All of the proceeds from this event will benefit the St. Louis APDA and Center for Advanced Parkinson Research, located at Washington University School of Medicine. The Center is one of nine such Advanced Research Centers in the nation. So pack up your favorite “priceless”
heirlooms to find out if it is a deal or a dud and purchase a ticket to help a worthy cause. You might just find out that you have a real “gem” of an item. For addition information and to purchase tickets, contact the St. Louis APDA Information and Referral Center at 314-3623299. Tickets must be purchased in advance and shown at the door for admission to this exciting event. Visit www.kodnergallery.com for more information about Kodner Gallery.
Are you sharp enough to know whether or not this wooden bucket and rolling chair are worth thousands of dollars or worth nothing at all? The Kodner Gallery is and its professional staff is willing to help. Photos for The Edge.

Meramec Caverns again presents Lantern Tours through the worldfamous show cave every Friday and Saturday evening in June. Tours begin at 7:30 p.m. with an introduction to the awe-inspiring beauty of the cave. Then each visitor is equipped with an aged, hand-held electric lantern. “There’s something about the cave being lit with lanterns,” said Erica Turilli, educational director at Meramec Caverns. “It gives you a sense of mystery and discovery.” During the 80-minute Lantern Tour, many mysteries and folklore are told by a variety of characters. The historic characters portrayed include an Osage Native American who tells about Indians of Missouri; a Civil War soldier covering how the cave was mined to manufacture gunpowder; and the infamous outlaw Jesse James. The highlight of the tour is the Stage Curtain, a 70-foot tall, 60foot wide and 35-foot deep vertical dripstone. “You hear dripping water, but only see a portion of the curtain as you enter the room,” said Turilli. “It’s only when you get closer and can illuminate it with the lantern do you see the height and breadth of the curtain. Then we hear a gasp.” Starting only in 2007, the Lantern Tours have quickly become a muchanticipated specialty tour. Visitors travel from all over the Midwest to see the caverns this way. To u r s a r e s c h e d u l e d v i a reservation by calling 1-800-6766105. Admission is $22 for adults and $12 for children ages 5-11; children 4 and under are free.

“Judy Garland Live” – sort of Tommy (yes, Tommy) Femia will bring his act to The Sheldon By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Miss seeing Judy Garland belt out some of her fabulous songs? You can take a step back in time as “Judy Garland Live” is brought to the stage of The Sheldon Concert Hall. Cabaret St. Louis presents Tommy Femia in “Judy Garland Live” on Thursday, July 14 at 8 p.m., at The Sheldon. This is a one-time showing only, so don’t delay in ordering your tickets. Tommy Femia is the seven-time Manhattan Association of Cabarets and Clubs (MAC) Award-winning impersonator and a mainstay of Manhattan’s top clubs and concerts nationwide with his incomparable portrayal of the legendary Judy Garland. Not only does he have the look down, he embodies Judy from head to toe, voice and mannerisms intact. This extraordinary event will also feature a special appearance by the Harmonix from the Gateway Men’s Chorus. Tommy Femia’s impersonation (without lipsynching) of this incomparable star is a dedicated, loving tribute, and features David Maiocco at the keyboard. In a show The New York Times calls “Fabulous!” and the The Village Voice reports is “A pricelessly sung Judy Garland,” Tommy is most convincing with Garland’s body language and speech – Tommy’s Judy Garland is from the ‘60’s Carnegie Hall era. He also adds a few songs Garland never performed, presenting them in her style of steadfast bravura and infuses them with over-thetop inspiration. Femia also relishes the breathless, jittery, selfdeprecating Judy patter: “I’m not bitter; bitter is a color that goes with nothing” and creates a running connection with ringside viewers, asking “Has Liza come yet?”
Tommy Femia made his Off Broadway debut in The New American at The Nat Horne Theatre, and toured the country, as Linus in “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.” In Bucks County he appeared as Tallulah Bankhead in the musical “Tallulah!” and in New York City as Bette Davis in “A Very Bette Christmas.” He also starred in the hit Off Broadway production of the Drama Desk Award-winning “Whoop-Dee-Doo!” at the Actors’ Playhouse, and starred as Judy Garland in the one-man show “I Will Come Back” at The Players Theatre.

Music Tuning in The Arianna String Quartet announces 2010-11 St. Louis concert series The Arianna String Quartet (ASQ) has announced its 2010-11 St. Louis concert series. Recognized as one of America’s finest chamber ensembles, the ASQ will perform four concerts – “Death and the Maiden,” “Arianna by Request,” “Quint-Essential!” with special guest pianist Anton Nel, and “Titans of Style” – in the E. Desmond and Mary Ann Lee Theater at the Touhill Performing Arts Center. Subscriptions are on sale now. Single tickets go on sale August 9. The ASQ, comprised of violinists John McGrosso and David Gillham, violist Joanna Mendoza and cellist Kurt Baldwin, has been based in St. Louis since 2000 and is the quartetin-residence at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. “The Arianna’s audience has significantly expanded over the last couple of years, leading to full and enthusiastic houses,” said John Cattanach, managing director of the Touhill. For the upcoming season, the ASQ has created the concert series with the connoisseur as well as the newcomer in mind. “Our goal in programming is to present the powerfully expressive masterpieces of the quartet literature,” said ASQ cellist Kurt Baldwin, “while simultaneously keeping the concerts new and interesting for our audience.” The ASQ kicks off its St. Louis series with “Death and the Maiden,” September 10, 2010. The evening celebrates quartets by three composers whose dramatic creations helped chart the course of classical music. Antonin Dvorak’s alluring String Quartet
in E-flat Major, Op.51 presents a landscape of rolling beauty, filled with Czech folk music that sparks the imagination. Dmitri Shostakovich’s Quartet No.7 expresses the breadth of life’s jagged emotional journey in this piece dedicated to the memory of his wife. Franz Schubert’s tour de force, the Quartet in D minor, “Death and the Maiden,” closes the program with a musical drama that captures the power and fragility of the human experience. “Arianna by Request,” October 29, 2010, the ASQ turns to its audience to choose the line up in this uniquely interactive concert e x p e r i e n c e . I n s p i re d b y t h e support of the hometown crowd, the ASQ compiled a list of 12 masterpieces from which concertgoers choose. The top-three, votegetting pieces will be performed in this concert. Patrons can go to touhill.org to vote. On March 5, 2011, Anton Nel – one of the most cherished and celebrated pianist in the world – shares the stage with the ASQ for “Quint-Essential!” This piano quintet gala concert showcases the power and intimacy of Dvorak, Elgar and Brahms. Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times hails Nel as, “An uncommonly elegant pianist.” The evening of three great piano quintets features Dvorak’s Piano Quintet in A Major, Op.81; Elgar ’s Piano Quintet in A minor, Op.84; and Brahms’ Piano Quintet in F minor, Op.34. The ASQ closes its 2010-11 St. Louis concert series with “Titans of Style,” May 6, 2011. It features three landmark quartets, whose innovative languages and styles forged new paths for musical expressivity. Mozart’s Quartet in A Major, K.464, is a tonally adventuresome work that sets the stage for the future of classical music. As Mozart said about this

work in 1785, “Look what I could produce, if only you were ready for it.” Bela Bartok’s groundbreaking Quartet No.5 introduces a new sonic world that shows the composer at the height of his compositional genius. Finally, Claude Debussy’s exhilarating Quartet in G minor takes listeners on a nuanced odyssey through French traditions, world cultures and Debussy’s compositional ingenuity. “And as part of our Touhill concert series,” commented Baldwin, “we are thrilled to welcome the awardwinning Parker Quartet, January 28, 2011. They are an exciting, superb group. Augmenting our series of concerts to include other quartets from around the country, especially groups as fine as the Parker, helps enhance our audience’s chamber music experience in St. Louis.” Hailed by the New York Times as “something extraordinary” and by the Boston Globe for their “fiercely committed performances,” the Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. The Parker Quartet was awarded the prestigious 2009-2011 Cleveland Quartet Award. Given biennially by Chamber Music America, this award honors and promotes a rising young string quartet whose artistry demonstrates that it is in the process of establishing a major career. Each ASQ concert and The Parker Quartet is an E3! performance, Explore – Experience – Engage. E3! pre-show discussions, which begin 50 minutes prior to the performance, and post-show receptions are free to ticket holders. The four-show ASQ subscription package is $95. The Parker Quartet special engagement can be added to the ASQ subscription package for $20. Subscriptions for ASQ’s 2010-11 St. Louis concert series is on sale
now. Single tickets go on sale August 9. They will be available at the Touhill Performing Arts Center Ticket Office; online at www.touhill. org; or by phone at 314-516-4949. The Touhill’s Ticket Office is located at One University Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63121. All St. Louis area students receive a 10% discount on two tickets with their I.D. Group and
senior discounts are also available. The Touhill Performing Arts Center is located on the north campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis, just 10 minutes from Clayton. (Exit #240 from I70).

QuickGlance Movie Reviews
“Shrek Forever After”
Given that this is the first film in the “Shrek” franchise in 3-D, it’s surprisingly flat — and we’re not just talking about the look of it. This fourth and allegedly final installment in the series is lifeless, joyless and woefully devoid of the upbeat energy that distinguished the earlier movies — well, at least the first two. If “Shrek the Third” from 2007 felt tired, “Shrek Forever After” is practically narcoleptic. Brief bursts of manic energy give way to long, heavy stretches that drag. Most of the hackneyed pop culture references of its predecessors are gone, mercifully, but so is the fun. This time, the big, bad ogre (voiced as always by Mike Myers) is having a mid-life crisis — not exactly a hoot for the kids in the audience, and their parents can suffer through that at home for free. As for the animation, presenting it in 3-D doesn’t add a whole lot. This is not a deeply immersive experience; more often, it consists of stuff being flung at you in gimmicky fashion. And the frustrating part is, the “Shrek” movies didn’t need an added dimension: They already had an impressive visual scheme all their own. Eddie Murphy, Cameron Diaz and Antonio Banderas return to the voice cast. RATED: PG for mild action, some rude humor and brief language. In 3-D and IMAX 3-D. RUNNING TIME: 93 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.
“Overkill is underrated,” says Hannibal Smith, leader of “The A-Team,” while planning a particularly elaborate and explosive scheme to trap a bad guy. Director and co-writer Joe Carnahan apparently subscribes to this school of thought, as well. If you’re looking for subtlety, look elsewhere. Carnahan’s big-screen version of the ’80s TV series is ridiculously overthe-top, full of wild helicopter chases and exploding sport utility vehicles and tumbling cargo containers. At times it feels like little more than a cacophony of automatic gunfire and shattered glass. Then again, you shouldn’t really expect anything else given the source material. Mainly it’s just flatout fun, with a cheeky sense of humor — way more enjoyable than you might expect when you consider the ignominious history of movies inspired by TV shows. Carnahan keeps things moving; the film’s fluid editing is especially noticeable during the big set pieces — impossibly complex, intricately timed missions that the team makes look easy. The strength of the cast helps: Liam Neeson as Hannibal, the team’s cigar-

chomping mastermind; Bradley Cooper, an ideal choice to play charmer Templeton “Face” Peck; and “District 9” star Sharlto Copley, bringing equal amounts of humor and danger to the role of “Howlin’ Mad” Murdock. Even mixed martial arts star Quinton “Rampage” Jackson offers a solid presence, filling the intimidating shoes of Mr. T to play B.A. Baracus. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence throughout, language and smoking. RUNNINT TIME: 118 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.
“Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work”
She would seem to be the most brutally straightforward woman in America, but Joan Rivers emerges as a jumble of contradictions in this documentary, beginning most immediately — and superficially — with her appearance. There’s the voice, which still has that recognizable raspy edge to it, that amped-up indignation, even in her mid-70s. But then there’s the face, which doesn’t move regardless of the intensity of her stand-up comedy rants — the result of too much plastic surgery. There’s the desire to be taken seriously as an actress, but also a willingness to endorse any product and a genuine enthusiasm for the opportunities that might arise from appearing on Donald Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice.” And then there’s the acerbic wit that spares no one and nothing, a trailblazing comic presence, juxtaposed with a traditional, almost quaint longing for loyalty, honesty and trust — one that brings her to tears — even after all these years in show business. Rivers is never boring, that’s for sure, even when the film itself grows repetitive by hammering home a few key points that are obvious: She’s a performer. She’s hardworking. She’s a perfectionist. RATED: R for language and sexual humor. RUNNING TIME: 84 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.
“The Karate Kid”
Fellow children of the ’80s: Merely pondering the possibility of a “Karate Kid” remake tears at the very fiber of our adolescence. Nevertheless, a new version is upon us. Director Harald Zwart (“Agent Cody Banks”) hits all the same notes and adheres closely to Robert Mark Kamen’s original 1984 script, down to a sweep-the-leg moment in the finale. Details have been tweaked in Christopher Murphey’s new script,
including the setting: Instead of moving from New Jersey to Los Angeles because of his single mom’s new job, our young hero moves from Detroit to Beijing, where he promptly incurs the wrath of the local thugs and learns martial arts to protect himself. (And by the way, it’s now kung fu.) But one of the biggest changes of all is the character’s age. Ralph Macchio was what, like, 35 when he starred in the original? But he looked 16, as his character was, so he seemed like a good fit. Now the character, Dre, is 12 — as is the film’s star, Jaden Smith. But with his pretty face and slight build, Smith looks about 9. It’s distracting. So neither the fighting nor the romance with a girl who’s out of his league — two key components of “The Karate Kid” — makes sense. Still, we must watch Dre go through the motions of learning from Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), the handyman in the building where he and his mother, Sherry (Taraji P. Henson), now live. Chan is solid in an extremely different role, one that’s much more serious and understated than his well-known, playful persona. RATED: PG for bullying, martial arts action violence and some mild language. RUNNING TIIME: 135 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.
A backwoods masterpiece, this low-budget tale of an indomitable Ozark Mountain teen is raw, real, understated, fiercely intense and surprisingly gentle and decent amid bursts of ferocity in the rural crime culture where the story’s set. Jennifer Lawrence delivers an awards-worthy performance as a 17-year-old desperately searching for her wayward father, who put up the family homestead to cover his bond on drug charges. Writer-director Debra Granik immerses the audience in a rich, almost alien trek through a cloistered backcountry that outsiders rarely see. Roughhewn clothing, earthy slang, roots music, gloriously bleak landscapes, the graphic lesson a sister teaches her young brother on how to skin and gut a squirrel for frying — the detail Granik captures is remarkable. So, too, is the supporting cast, led by John Hawkes, a blend of ornery meanness and pastoral valor as Lawrence’s drug-abusing uncle. The film’s language and action are simple, the weight and meaning profound. This is high drama filled with nobility, savagery and everything in between, with a nugget of hope at its core despite the stark story and surroundings. RATED: R for some drug material, language and violent content. RUNNING TIME: 100 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Four stars out of four.

Movies “Killer Inside Me” will divide viewers By CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press Here’s the conundrum with “The Killer Inside Me”: It’s well-made, yet difficult to recommend. It looks great, a mix of parched West Texas vistas and lush interiors, yet portions of it are impossible to watch without wincing. The performances are consistently strong, though, especially from star Casey Affleck as a smalltown deputy sheriff in the early 1950s whose polite demeanor and boyish features belie a savage homicidal streak. Director Michael Winterbottom also gets typically compelling work from Ned Beatty and Elias Koteas in small but crucial supporting roles. (If nothing else, this is yet another intriguing entry in the British director ’s eclectic filmography, which includes “The Claim,” “24 Hour Party People” and “A Mighty Heart.”) But regardless of any other elements, there are a couple of scenes here that will have everyone talking, and will divide viewers’ opinions of the entire movie. Based on the pulp fiction novel by Jim Thompson, “The Killer Inside Me” tracks the steady unraveling of a sociopath, one hidden among the people we trust to be the good guys. Affleck’s Lou Ford comes from an established family in Central City, and he has a lovely girlfriend in Amy Stanton (Kate Hudson), who’s pressuring him to get married. Then one day, the sheriff (Tom Bower) sends him out to talk with Joyce Lakeland (Jessica Alba), a prostitute who’s ensnared the son (Jay R. Ferguson) of Chester Conway (Beatty), the town’s power broker. His purpose is to run her out of town. But a couple of slaps from Joyce during their confrontation unleash pent-up aggressions and
In this film publicity image released by IFC Films, Kate Hudson as Amy Stanton, left, and Casey Affleck as Lou Ford are shown in a scene from “The Killer Inside Me.” desires within Lou, and in no time they’ve launched into a full-blown affair: a toxic combination of rough sex and tender expressions of love. Those scenes alone will make some viewers uncomfortable; what Lou ends up doing to Joyce as part of a larger plan — bashing her soft, gorgeous face until it resembles raw hamburger meat — may make you squirm and turn your stomach. The intent, of course, is to show
the depths of Lou’s depravity, the conflicting urges that drive him. It’s supposed to disturb us, but Winterbottom didn’t need to go as far as he did; pulling back a bit would have allowed him to get his point across without alienating so much of his audience. Actually, if John Curran’s adapted script had fleshed out Alba and Hudson’s characters more thoroughly — had made even a vague attempt at
addressing why they’d be drawn to this man and his sadistic ways — the fates that befall them would have had an even stronger impact. At the end of Joyce’s beating, Lou tells her softly: “I love you. Good bye.” And throughout the entire film, Affleck’s high-pitched, raspy monotone adds a creepy layer to such dark events. But she isn’t his first victim, as we learn through flashbacks, nor will she be his last.
While the individual moments of brutality are powerful, the pacing of the film as a whole tends to lag. The suspense should be suffocating as Lou’s crimes creep up on him, as he gets sloppy, as some of the snoopier folks in town get wise to his true nature. Paranoia begins to seep into his brain: “It was almost like there was a plot against me,” he notes as part of the film’s frequent narration.
"The A-Team" exceeds expectations By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge I had my doubts, I guess, that an A-Team movie could live up to the fondness I have for the original television series. I vividly recall watching it during its original run on NBC during the mid-1980s, though I was but a small fry at the time. Reruns, more likely, are the source for my current level of knowledge on the topic. “The A-Team”, whether you credit the Frank Lupo/Stephen J. Cannell pedigree, Mike Post theme song, famously inexplicit violence, or George Peppard’s dry wit, was a show that well lent itself to multiple viewings--especially on hot, summer days away from school. The movie is exactly the same cure for ills. This A-Team is portrayed by actors who had major wins on their resumes in 2009. The casting agent, in my opinion, gets high marks for this one. Liam Neeson (Taken), puts plans together expertly as Colonel John

“Hannibal” Smith, a cigar chomping tactical genius in the current Middle Eastern conflict. The action has shifted from the Vietnam era of the TV series to something both more modern (despite desert conditions this movie was filmed entirely in Canada) and more moviefriendly (the bad guys are out to steal some currency imprinting plates to bring down the American fiscal system). Hannibal is assisted by Lieutenant Templeton “Faceman” Peck, a smug son-of-a- gun played by The Hangover’s Bradley Cooper. Cooper brings the absolute necessary parts to this role: he’s handsome, fit, sarcastic, and has the ability to deliver biting one-liners while distracting everyone with sleight of hand. Had he not had an amazing run in the recent past, he would be the breakout star of this picture. Sharlto Copley, who was so fantastic in District 9, is the group’s lunatic pilot, Captain “Howling Mad” Murdock. He can, and does, fly just about anything at various points in this movie--including, as outrageously as it sounds,
an armored tank. Murdock is completely off his rocker. He’s loyal to his team, yes, but still around the bend. Thankfully, this creates much of the humor that infuses this movie. Re-enacting a famous scene from Braveheart, speaking fluent Swahili, and covering You Spin Me Round (Like a Record) are just some of the cheekier moments in a movie so infused with comedy that I forgot myself at times in laughter. Murdock’s spars best with a personality that is his polar opposite, that being Sergeant Bosco Baracus (UFC’s Quinton “Rampage” Jackson). Jackson has the mohawk, fear of flying, and bad attitude that Mr. T first exhibited in his now iconic character. He tries to bring his own pathos to the role by injecting it with a moral dilemma over killing men in the line of duty, but that’s a B-story that carries little weight. The action is paramount to the survival of this movie. In fact, too many additional characters complicate things quite a bit. Smith’s A(lpha)-Team is tasked with special
operations outside of the normal chain of command. When a mission is sabotaged by a military contractor (Brian Bloom), they are framed for certain treasonous acts and forced to escape prison to clear their good (but secret) names. Pursuing the team is a sexy agent of the Department of Justice (Jessica Biel) and a shadowy fixer for the CIA (Patrick Wilson). Each party has its own motives and they all come to an explosive head at the film’s raucous ending in the Port of Los Angeles. A sequel is certainly a possibility, but I encourage you to see this one all the way through, especially to the surprise scene that follows the movie’s closing credits. A couple of superb cameos will reward you for your time. The A-Team is perfect at escaping tricky situations, but the ATeam movie is also a perfect way to escape. ••• The A-Team runs 130 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action and violence throughout, language, and smoking. I give this film three stars out of four.

Movies "Jonah Hex" is sugarcoated violence By DAVID GERMAIN Associated Press Critics always gripe that movies are too long and could stand some pruning. Then you get the occasional movie, like comic-book adaptation “Jonah Hex,” that’s too short — so short, and so bad, you cringe at the thought of how awful whatever ended u p o n t h e c u t t i n g - ro o m f l o o r must be. Take away the eight minutes of end-credits, a lengthy prologue sequence built around comic-book panels and some repetitive flashbacks of action we’ve already seen, and there’s barely an hour ’s worth of actual movie in “Jonah Hex.” And that’s using the term “actual movie” generously. Part of what’s missing is the h a rd e r- c o re v i o l e n c e c h o p p e d to get “Jonah Hex” down to a PG-13 rating, the theory being that an R rating scares off customers. That’s the same mistake made on Sam Raimi’s “Drag Me to Hell” last year. Raimi’s horror tale of a woman consigned to hell by a gypsy curse needed the blood-
a n d - g o re e l b o w ro o m o f a n R rating, and who knows? If it had not been defanged by the PG-13 rating, maybe people would have shown up to see it. So too “Jonah Hex,” starring Josh Brolin as a disfigured 19th century bounty hunter with his own connections to hell, needed to take the gloves off. This is a story about a man who watched his wife and son burned alive, communes savagely with the dead and vows unholy vengeance against the man responsible for all his troubles. The subject matter alone w i l l s c a re o ff a s i z a b l e c h u n k of movie-goers, while the PG13 rating will annoy many fans of the comic book. So the filmmakers have shot off both feet by telling a nasty story then dusting it in sugar. Brolin’s Jonah Hex (people always seem to call him by his full name, as though the extra syllables were needed to fill out the movie’s running time) is a Confederate Civil Wa r v e t e r a n w h o t u r n s t o hunting down bad guys after
his family is immolated by e v i l - f o r- t h e - s a k e - o f - b e i n g e v i l villain Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich). Tu r n b u l l a l s o h o r r i b l y s c a r s Jonah’s face with a branding iron. The whole experience somehow leaves Jonah able to bring the dead back to life momentarily with a touch, so h e c a n i n t e r ro g a t e t h e m ( t h i s arbitrary superpower comes with its own phony rules that include the dead’s ability to see the comings and goings of anyone they knew. Handy trick for a bounty hunter looking for info). W i t h Tu r n b u l l a i m i n g t o unleash a doomsday weapon to destroy the United States as it celebrates its centennial, Jonah is enlisted by the federal government to stop the madman. The action feels choppy and unfinished, continually and jarringly stacking up a colossal body count without showing the killshots that made so many people dead. Such prudishness does not serve a supernatural story set
in bloodthirsty pioneer days. Jimmy Hayward, who directed the animated hit “Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!” and was an animator on “Toy S t o r y, ” “ F i n d i n g N e m o ” a n d other beloved Pixar films, makes his live-action directing debut on “Jonah Hex.” That career progression is so puzzling, it’s probably best to leave it alone. The movie’s adapted from the DC Comics series by screenwriters Mark Neveldene a n d B r i a n Ta y l o r, w h o w r o t e a n d d i re c t e d J a s o n S t a t h a m ’ s “Crank” action thrillers. That career progression makes sense. As for the careers of the ons c re e n p l a y e r s , w e l l , B ro l i n ’ s h a d a g o o d r u n l a t e l y, a n d he does try to bring gravity to Jonah, even if you can’t understand a lot of his dialogue because of a speech impediment caused by his facial wound. You can’t blame B ro l i n t o o m u c h f o r t r y i n g t o land his own action franchise. Megan Fox — yes, her again — co-stars as Jonah’s love interest, Lilah, a prostitute

Escape to the great outdoors in Indiana By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge
Vacations and getaways are not just for kicking back and putting your feet up anymore. People are seeking out adventure and outdoor activities more and more as health and environmental information comes to the forefront. It isn’t always a good or logical decision to purchase the equipment needed to take some of these adventure trips. Most people don’t have much use for a kayak after their trip or a need for a mountain bike if they don’t live near rough terrain. But don’t let that deter you from planning those adventurous activities. Renting equipment is becoming easier and more accessible with the popularity and interest in outdoor adventure trips. Visitors to Lawrence County, Ind., can now give canoeing,
kayaking and mountain or trail bike riding a try. In June, the Lawrence County Visitor Center welcomed a new adventure travel rental program to the area to provide access to these outdoor activities. Most High Adventure Outfitters recently opened at 2482 SR 60 East, 1/2 mile west of Spring Mill State Park in Mitchell and rents canoes, kayaks and bikes for excursions
through the scenic Indiana terrain. Lawrence County has always been known for outdoor recreation activities such as hiking, biking, horseback riding and geocaching. With rolling hills, limestone terrains, the winding East Fork of the White River and Salt Creek below Monroe dam, the area has recently gained popularity as an ideal spot for canoeing and kayaking as well. Most High Adventure Outfitters offer comfortable canoes, sit-ontop kayaks and safety equipment to accommodate all visitors, from small children to extra large adults. Combination excursions allow for a half day of biking with a half day of paddling to fully experience the day. Visitors are provided with all equipment and transportation to departure sites. The owner of Most High Adventure Outfitters, Steve Chafin, is an outdoor activity expert and an environmental science professional. His love for the outdoors led him to open Most High Adventure Outfitters to allow families and friends to enjoy nature and the Southern Indiana landscapes. David Branneman, Executive
Director of the Lawrence County Tourism Commission, said, “This area welcomes guests of all ages who love outdoor activities.” “ We c u r r e n t l y o f f e r G P S rentals for those who’d like to try geocaching. Now, by offering canoe, kayak and mountain bike rentals, visitors can completely explore the terrain and White River without having to own substantial equipment.” Lawrence County is located in the heart of southern Indiana’s rolling hills, 90 minutes south of Indianapolis and two-and-a-half hours west of Cincinnati, Ohio. The Lawrence County Visitor C e n t e r p ro v i d e s G P S re n t a l s and information on attractions, lodging and tours in the area. The Lawrence County Visitor Center is located at 533 West Main St. in downtown Mitchell, Ind., and is open Monday through Saturday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more about Lawrence County, Ind., and other activities to do in the area, visit http:// www.limestonecountry.com.

Travel Travel briefs Tampa officials fume over Florida tourism brochure ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay area officials are fuming over glaring errors in a Florida tourism brochure that went out in newspapers last Sunday. The color brochures stuffed into 1.7 million Florida newspapers put Clearwater Beach in north Florida, the Salvador Dali Museum in Tampa instead of St. Petersburg, and incorrectly refers to the baseball team as the Tampa Devil Rays. T h e b ro c h u re , i n t e n d e d t o persuade Florida residents to vacation in the state, was produced under the auspices of Florida’s tourism bureau by a Georgia company, which took responsibility. The gaffe comes at a time when local hotels are already facing problems attracting customers spooked by the Gulf oil spill.
Spain to reopen Caves of Altamira despite warnings MADRID (AP) — A cave complex boasting prized prehistoric paintings will reopen after eight years of closure, despite scientists’ warnings that heat and moisture from human visitors damage the site known as the Sistine Chapel of Paleolithic Art. The Culture Ministry and the site’s board of directors said Tuesday that visits to the Caves of Altamira in the northern Cantabria region will resume next year, although on a stillunspecified, restricted basis. The main chamber at Altamira features 21 bison painted in red and black, which appear to be to charging against a low, limestone ceiling. The site was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1985. The paintings are estimated to be 14,000 to 20,000 years old. Discovered in 1868, the cave complex became a tourist magnet and by the 1970s received 3,000 visitors a day. Body heat and moisture from people’s breath were blamed for a gradual deterioration of the images, and from 1982-2002 only a handul of visits were allowed each day. The cave was completely shut off to most visitors after scientists detected green mold stains on the paintings in the main chamber. A replica of the caves was built in a museum in 2001. I n A p r i l o f t h i s y e a r, t h e government’s main scientific research body, called the CSIC, recommended that the caves remain closed. “The people who go in the cave have the bad habit of moving, breathing and perspiring,” CSIC researcher Mariona HernandezMarine wrote then. The site’s board voted to reopen, however, calling the caves too valuable to keep closed.
June 24, 2010
“Altamira is an asset we cannot do without,” the Cantabria region’s president, Miguel Angel Revilla, said.
He said he had had the misfortune of saying no to Jacques Chirac when the former French president once asked to see the
caves, and more recently to the visiting president of Mexico, Felipe Calderon. A committee has been appointed
to set the new rules for how many people can visit the caves each day and will meet for the first time next week.
Business Is Booming!! But… Supply Shortage Drives Local Car Dealer To Pay-Off Consumer Auto Loans And Leases Early To Keep Inventory Full
EDWARDSVILLE – Good news for people who are tired of their ride: Koetting Ford needs used cars and is willing to do just about anything to get them…including helping you to eliminate the remaining payments on your current lease or loan. Dealers nationwide have experienced a spike in sales recently, but manufacturers have slowed production to a near standstill and President Obama’s Cash For Clunkers program removed 690,000 vehicles from the road. This all means there are not enough vehicles “for sale” right now to keep up the current sales pace. One local car dealer, Marty McCabe from Koetting Ford, invented a unique solution to the problem. “Our business can’t afford to wait for this problem to run its course. We need to keep selling cars this month. But with only a 56-day supply on-hand nationally, we need to do something pretty drastic. There are thousands of people in this town who want a nicer, newer car but are still making payments. Then there’s me, who needs used cars. So…how about I help you handle the remaining payments and you get a better car right now?”
t most dealerships, the credit score matters more than the person. But our relationships with many flexible lenders allows us to match your credit application with the lender most likely to approve you…a bank that will take the person into consideration, not just the credit score. Heck, just looking at the credit scores is what got us into this mess in the first place. It’s high time to put the person first, in my opinion. That’s how we operate here. Marty McCabe
This unusual proposal makes sense because rather than removing a car from the inventory at the time of purchase, you actually replenish the supply when you trade in. Marty McCabe says that each transaction has a unique “Inventory Footprint” with some transactions resulting in -1, some in 0, and some in +1. According to McCabe, “This month we’re looking for 0’s and +1’s, which means we’ll buy your current vehicle even if you don’t buy one from us and we will help you pay off your loan or lease early, just so we can keep our inventory from running dry.”
How Long Will This Last?
When asked about timing, McCabe explained, “This problem should only last about a month. I expect the supply to level out by July as the manufacturers pick up the pace and other dealers’ sales slow down. But we only have 12 months in a year, and I’m not willing to go dark for one of them.” Automotive experts indicate that this inventory correction could last anywhere between 10 and 45 days. The offer to help you eliminate the remaining payments on your loan or lease is good until June 30, 2010 or until the inventory supply returns…whichever comes first.
A Trader’s Market?
“It’s a lot like a perfect storm,” says McCabe. “Nobody could have predicted it, and it only comes around every 10 or 15 years. Suppliers have been slowing down consistently over the past few years. But nobody expected so many sales to be made so quickly in the first part of 2010. Until it’s resolved, this ‘perfect storm’ creates what’s known as a ‘Trader’s Market’ which places upward pressure on
Edwardsville residents are lining up at Koetting Ford to have their car loans or leases paid off early (sometimes YEARS early) and then driving home in a nicer, newer vehicle long before they thought they could. National auto supply shortages are forcing Koetting Ford to overpay for trades, resulting in early pay-offs. This rare ‘trader’s market’ will only last through the end of the month. Call or visit Koetting Ford at 3465 Progress Pkwy., Granite City 62040 (Rt 3 at Pontoon Rd. next to Granite City WalMart)!
the value of your trade. That extra value gives me the leverage I need to negotiate favorable buy out terms with your original bank.”
The Banks Want Out
To make the timing even better, it seems that some banks are anxious to eliminate loans made between two and five years ago. “There was a lending frenzy during that time that caused many banks to make deals they wish they wouldn’t have made (now known as toxic assets). Now they’re trying to clean their books up…and many are more than happy to be finished with loans that aren’t yet paid off. This works in your favor.” “It truly is a good opportunity for all involved: the bank gets their money, I get the inventory I need, and you get the nicer, newer car you want. There are no losers in this deal!” trumpeted McCabe.

Heck, just looking at the credit scores is what got us into this mess in the first place. It’s high time to put the person first, in my opinion. That’s how we operate here.”
Marty McCabe expects a heavy response to this offer, so please call ahead and make an appointment to have your current loan or lease evaluated. Walk-ins will be accepted, though may require a short wait. If lines are busy, please keep calling. Please call 618-452-5400 or visit Koetting Ford at 3465 Progress Pkwy., Granite City 62040 (Rt 3 at Pontoon Rd. next to Granite City WalMart)
People Over Credit Profiles
“At most dealerships, the credit score matters more
Ask The Dealer For The People:
Q: Who is this right for? A: This is good for anyone who is currently making a car payment but would like to switch to a nicer, newer car and stop making his or her current payments. Q: Will there be a negative impact on my credit score? A: No. Your current lease or loan will be paid off and there will be no negative consequences. If anything, it could help your score because you’ve successfully paided of the loan or lease. Q: What will my new payment be? A: That depends on what car you choose next. Often we can keep your payment the same and sometimes the payment is actually a bit lower. Imagine driving a nicer newer car with a lower payment. Q: How much will I need for a down payment? A: There is no fee for us to evaluate your trade-in and eliminate your payments. And many of the banks we work with offer no to low down payment options. Plus my Transparent Trade Appraisal Process means you’ll receive a fair, accurate and complete evaluation of your current vehicle and situation, with no pressure.

Choose a skilled nursing full service facility Taking it all into account
It is best to choose a facility that provides a full range of medical services including physical therapy post-surgery for rehabilitation to return home, Long Term Care, Respite (short-term) Care and Alzheimer and Dementia Care.
What kind of care does your loved one need? Whether planning ahead or making a quick, needs based decision for in-facility care, there are a few areas to consider when choosing a skilled nursing facility. It is best to choose a facility that provides a full range of medical services including physical therapy, post-surgery for rehabilitation to return h o m e , L o n g Te r m C a r e , Respite (short-term) Care and Alzheimer and Dementia Care.
Alzheimer ’s disease, the whole family needs assistance. The goal is to maximize the resident’s functioning and self-esteem and to minimize family stress. When out-of-home placement is necessary, the facility you choose should have an Alzheimer and Dementia unit geared specifically to the quality of care and compassion necessary for residents to live as full lives as possible in a safe, secure environment and to extend their independence as long as possible while providing support to family members.
Doctors, relatives, hospital social workers, and your church may be able to help you identify specific facilities. Many facilities offer on-line virtual tours.

Your doctor is a valuable resource and may make recommendations to help you make the decision for your own or your loved one’s care.
Rehab Look for a State of the art Rehabilitation and Fitness Center to assist residents to Rehab, Recover and Return Home. This is especially appropriate for residents recovering from illnesses or surgery. Rehab to home conditions may include those recovering from hip replacements, knee surgeries or other orthopedic conditions, strokes, open heart surgeries and surgical wounds. Rehabilitation should include an i n t e rd i s c i p l i n a r y t e a m o f experienced professionals, state-of-the-art therapy equipment and a full range of rehabilitative therapies. Under the direction of your physician, rehab professionals should carefully design a specific treatment plan and work toward the residents’ individual goals. Look for a facility with a modern fitness room outfitted with strength training and endurance equipment in order for residents to reach and maintain their optimum levels of function.
The facility you choose should provide a continuum of care at an affordable price as well as recreational, social, and educational events to give residents the opportunity to enrich their lives, while respecting their privacy. Although the choices are numerous, look for simply the finest in care for your loved one. Submitted by Maryville Manor/Liberty Village

How to. . . Plan ahead While we take time to include college planning for our children, financial retirement planning and long-term care insurance needs, we don’t like to think about the choices for our memorialization. It makes sense to eliminate the burden on a family and ensure your personal wishes are finalized long before the need arises.
Choose your full service funeral home and cemetery
Pre-planning your funeral service and choosing the manner of disposition whether in a cemetery with ground burial, above-ground mausoleum interment or cremation may not be at the top of your to-do list, but it is becoming an accepted and appreciated practice.
Cremation is an alternative type of disposition and is becoming a preferred choice for many families. Ownership of the crematory will give you peace of mind because your loved one never leaves the care of the funeral director. Crematory operators should be licensed by the State of Illinois.
While we take time to include college planning for our children, financial retirement planning and long-term care insurance needs, we don’t like to think about the choices for our memorialization. It makes sense to eliminate the burden on a family and ensure your personal wishes are finalized long before the need arises.
Cremated remains are often placed in an urn, which can be placed in a mausoleum niche or a wall niche called a columbarium. The urn may also be buried in a family burial space or urn garden where a marker is used to memorialize the site. Some family members choose to have their remains taken to a favorite destination or home or made into a special memorial keepsakes.
The first step is to consider a locally owned facility with all the on-site services you would like to include. One provider may save you additional costs. Choose a facility known for integrity and professionalism. Other items to consider are:
You want a funeral home with knowledgeable people equipped to handle not only the visitation and funeral service, but also the interment and cremation
• Is the funeral home family owned and have roots in the community? • How long have they been in business? • Can the facility handle all of your requests? • Will the cemetery be maintained in the future? • Is the cemetery audited by the State of Illinois annually and open to State audit inspection?
Heritage Markers and monuments are one way to remember our loved ones. A lovely way to keep a memory may be with a diamond created from the carbon of your loved one or keepsake jewelry, or memory glass orbs.
You want a funeral home you can trust with knowledgeable people equipped to handle not only the visitation and funeral service, but also interment or cremation. Cemetery Many cemeteries offer a beautiful, well-maintained setting to remember your loved ones. Choose a cemetery with staff to keep the grounds beautiful year-round. A program with a floral tribute on special occasions is one way to remember and honor your family member. Cemeteries may have special annual services on Memorial Day or other days of remembrance for your family. Mausoleum Mausoleums offer an above ground option for burial. The casket is placed on a tray and slid into a purchased space and the space is then sealed, preserving the memory and integrity of your loved ones. A mausoleum crypt offers secure protection and remains clean and completely dry. The burial containers entombed do not come in contact with the earth. Some private family estate mausoleums can accommodate two to six or more people. A family mausoleum is an affordable option and is comparable to family burial. Cremation

The Arts Artistic adventures Unique St. Louis art on display at the Arch Jefferson National Expansion Memorial will host a special exhibit from St. Louis artist Sheila Harris at the Old Courthouse now through Aug. 22. Created especially for the memorial, the exhibit consists of nearly 40 watercolor paintings of buildings that once stood on the Arch grounds. Harris’ “portraits” of buildings depict structures from several generations of the city’s architectural history illustrating how the landscape on the r i v e r f ro n t e v o l v e d o v e r t i m e . The paintings are grouped based on four historic and stylistic eras on the riverfront. In addition, each portrait will include maps showing the buildings’ original locations, architectural fragments from the buildings, interpretive text and an artist’s statement. Harris, a St. Louis native, taught art at Rosary High School for 36 years. The exhibit is curated by her sister, NiNi Harris, a local historian and the author of nine books on St. Louis history, architecture, city neighborhoods and the Gateway Arch. While the exhibit is on display at the Courthouse, Harris will discuss and demonstrate her technique during several scheduled appearances. A schedule of the appearances can b e f o u n d o n l i n e a t w w w. n p s . gov/jeff. NiNi Harris will also present a historical play based on the exhibit during its run. NiNioffers that the exhibit will “expand in a different media the riverfront story and bring to life the fact
that there was once a wonderful c o l l e c t i o n o f b u i l d i n g s t h e re ranging from simple to ornate and from modest to grandiose. We have been so very fortunate in St. Louis, for we tore down a great collection of buildings, but got a great sculpture (the Gateway Arch) and landscape in their place. This is very rare in history and is one of the points I hope the exhibit will demonstrate.” This exhibit is possible d u e t o t h e g e n e ro u s s u p p o r t from Jefferson National Parks Association.

The Arts Artistic adventures International Performing Arts Series set at Touhill The Center for International Studies at the University Missouri-St. Louis has announced its 2010-11 International Performing Arts Series at the Touhill. The series includes Chinese Dance: Classical; Modern and Folk; Mavrothi Kontanis and the Maeandros Ensemble; Taikoza; Chiwoniso: Rebel Woman; and Triptych. Subscriptions are available now. Single tickets go on sale August 9. The International Performing Arts Series (IPAS) kicks off its 2010-11 season with Chinese Dance: Classical, Modern and Folk, September 18, 2010. In three acts - Dragon Rhythm, Chinese Trend and Swing China - this evening of dance takes the audience through a sweeping scope of Chinese culture. With dances titled Painting Fan Dance, Sleeve Dance, Northeast Yangee (Handkerchief) Dance and the Han & Tang Dynasty music dance, the performance promises an outstanding sample of the Chinese culture’s distinctive aesthetic. On October 28, 2010, The Maeandros Ensemble will perform its traditional folk, urban and classical music of Greece and the Near East. The result is an effortless blend of rich and varied traditions, a musical travelogue of the region. “These aren’t musty re-creations,” notes the Chicago Reader, “the arrangements are lively, the performances are vigorous, and Kontanis’s singing glows with soulfulness and sorrow.” Roughly translated, Taiko means “big drums” – and that’s exactly what Taikoza delivers on January 29, 2011. The group combines thunderous rhythms of ancestral Japanese drums with delicate melodies of bamboo flutes to revitalize an art form pulsing with energy. And the stunning sound of the drums is but one dramatic feature of a Taikoza performance. Dancers in vivid, traditional costumes create a dynamic aspect as powerful for the eyes as the Taiko drums are for the ears. Chiwoniso, one of the most exciting talents in African music today, will perform February 26, 2011. Emboldened by the historic spirit of African music with perspective of American protest songs, Chiwoniso writes and sings brilliantly reflective, entrancing compositions. The American-born Chiwoniso grew up immersed in the music of her parents’ native Zimbabwe. As a teen, she lived among the Shona tribe in Africa and embraced the country’s music as her life’s work. The IPAS closes its 2010-11 series with Triptych on May 12, 2011. Triptych is a vivacious three-part ensemble featuring fiddler Laura Risk, guitarist/percussionist/vocalist Paddy League, and dancer Kieran Jordan. This remarkable
trio delivers elegant and soulful renderings of traditional music and step dance, from Irish, Scottish, and FrenchCanadian traditions. Each boasts a robust solo career, but as Triptych, these three accomplished performers create a tasteful yet gutsy sound and a visually invigorating live concert performance. In addition to its five-show series, IPAS presents a special engagement of Masters of the Fiddle, featuring Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy on October 28, 2010. Two of the world’s most celebrated fiddlers, Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy showcase Celtic music, dance and song in Masters of the Fiddle. MacMaster is an electrifying artist whose signature sound on the beloved four-string resonates with audiences around the world. She plays effortlessly, even while incorporating step dancing into the performance. And Leahy, with his Canadian powerhouse family band of eight musical brothers and sisters, has wowed audiences worldwide and sold more than half a million recordings. Each IPAS presentation is an E3! performance, Explore – Experience – Engage. E3! pre-show discussions, which begin 50 minutes prior to the performance, and post-show receptions are free to ticket holders. The five-show IPAS subscription package is $80. The Masters of the Fiddle special engagement can be added to the ASQ subscription package for $31. Subscriptions for IPAS 2010-11 series are on sale now. Single tickets go on sale August 9. They will be available at the Touhill Performing Arts Center Ticket Office; online at www.touhill.org; or by phone at 314-516-4949. The Touhill’s Ticket Office is located at One University Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63121. All St. Louis area students receive a 10% discount on two tickets with their I.D. Group and senior discounts are also available. The Touhill Performing Arts Center is located on the north campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis, just 10 minutes from Clayton. (Exit #240 from I-70). There is ample free parking, and the UMSL North Campus MetroLink Station is just steps from the Touhill’s main entrance.
Dance St. Louis plans 45th season Dance St. Louis will open its 45th season of bringing great dance of the world to St. Louis in October with one of America’s premier ballet companies, Houston Ballet, and will close the following August with the 2009 Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Billy Elliot the Musical. “Through the year we will journey to emotions only dance can bring, with each performance from a company admired all over the world,” said Michael Uthoff, Dance St. Louis artistic & executive director. Dance St. Louis’ 2010-11 season opens October 8 and 9 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center when, as part
of the first-ever American Arts Experience–St. Louis, Houston Ballet brings an intimate program of sweet and playful classical dances by George Balanchine, Houston Artistic Director Stanton Welch, and Houston Associate Choreographer Christopher Bruce. The holiday season kicks off at the Fox Theatre on December 2-5 with The Joffrey Ballet in Nutcracker at the Fox, combining dancing of “exceptional fire and exuberance” (Chicago SunTimes), Tchaikovsky’s evergreen score played live by the Ballet Orchestra of St. Louis, luscious Victorian sets and costumes, and performances by young St. Louis-area singers and dancers. Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet comes to St. Louis for the first time at the Touhill on January 28 and 29. In just seven years, this New York-based troupe of 16 international dancers has vaulted into the front ranks with its cutting-edge repertory from Europe’s most daring choreographers. On March 11 and 12, the monumental Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to the Fox on March 11 and 12 for a mixed program blending modern dance and African American spirit, climaxed by the celebration of 50 years of its signature masterwork, Revelations. On March 25-27, the Fox explodes with the ever-popular international percussion sensation STOMP, co-presented by the U.S. Bank Broadway Series. On April 8 and 9, the Touhill blossoms into phantasmagoric visions of Mother Nature with MOMIX in Botanica. Creatures real and mythical materialize thanks to props, costumes, lighting, and the impossibly nimble dancer-illusionists. On May 26, 27 and 28, Dance St. Louis and the Touhill co-present SPRING TO DANCE FESTIVAL 2011, the fourth annual Memorial Day Weekend extravaganza of 30 dance companies from across the Midwest and beyond, for three completely different programs over three nights at only $10 per night. The season concludes on August 10-28 at the Fox Theatre with Billy Elliot the Musical, co-presented with the U.S. Bank Broadway Series. Based on the smash hit movie about a coal miner ’s son who discovers a surprising passion for ballet, Billy Elliot is the winner of ten 2009 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Choreography for Peter Darling’s dances, with music by Elton John. Season ticket packages are currently on sale. For more information, call the Dance St. Louis box office at 314-5346622 or visit dancestlouis.org. Single tickets for Houston Ballet, Nutcracker at the Fox, Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and MOMIX in Botanica go on sale September 7, Tuesday after Labor Day.

Melon School A sweet lesson for summer By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Many times I have wandered through the produce department thumping on this melon, squeezing that melon and pondering on another melon that I am not sure what it even is. The truth is, I have no idea how to tell if a melon is really ripe or even what some of the new varieties are. My family loves watermelon, cantaloupe and honey dew melon. But so often we are disappointed with the flavor or texture of an under or over ripe selection. Not only are shoppers going to be able to receive tips on selecting just the right melons, but they are going to be able to taste a number of summer melon varieties, many that shoppers have never tried before. On Saturday, June 26, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the produce experts at Schnucks stores will host customers at Frieda’s Produce University. This season, the curriculum includes a fun, hands-on way to discover a wide selection of specialty and exotic melon varieties. Throughout the day, customers are invited to come sample three specialty U.S.A.-grown melon varieties: Hami Gold, Golden Kiss
and Sugar Kiss, in addition to other summer melon and watermelon varieties. The signature melon and “star of the show” is the Hami Gold, a gourmet Asian-style melon that boasts a peachy-golden flesh that’s crisp, juicy and ultra-sweet. Shoppers are welcome to drop in anytime to discover the superb flavor and quality of Schnuck’s suite of summer melons, each with its own unique gourmet taste. “Produce University gives our produce teams the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise while encouraging our customers to venture beyond the Cantaloupe and Honeydew and learn to use the more exotic tasting varieties to enliven everything from appetizers and salads to
desserts,” said Mike O’Brien, Vice President of Produce at Schnucks. “Nothing says summer like sweet, refreshing melon!” Frieda’s is passionate about changing the way America eats. America has Frieda’s to thank for introductions to Kiwifruit, Shallots, Cherimoyas, Donut Peaches, Sugar Snap Peas and Habanero Peppers. Learn more at www.friedas.com. Once you make your summer recipe selections, here is a great recipe to try: Summer Melon a la Mode Serve sweet Golden Kiss or Sugar Kiss melon chunks over ice cream, pound cake, or alone in a long-stemmed chilled goblet. 1 Golden Kiss or Sugar Kiss melon 1/3 cup Triple Sec or orange liqueur 1 tbsp. finely chopped Frieda’s Crystallized Ginger Toasted slivered almonds Chop the melon into bite-sized chunks. Place in a non-metal bowl. Sprinkle the Triple Sec over the melon. Stir in the crystallized ginger. Refrigerate, covered, for 30 minutes to 6 hours to blend flavors. Serve as is, topped with slivered almonds, or over pound cake or ice cream. Makes four to six servings.

Family Focus Money plays key roll in pet care LOS ANGELES (AP) — When a vet told Nancy Gates that her dog Arabella had heart problems, needed surgery and it would cost $500, she had no choice but to put her pet down. “It was pretty straightforward because I had four young children to feed. The vet said surgery was my only option. I did not want my dog to suffer,” she said. Gates, 41, of Cotati, about 50 miles north of San Francisco, made that decision 11 years ago but said nothing has changed. She still couldn’t afford high-priced health care for her current pets, an 11year-old cat, Cocoa, and a 9-yearold golden retriever Sadie. And Gates isn’t alone. Money is a consideration for the majority of people when dealing with the cost of health care for animals, according to an Associated Press-Petside.com poll conducted by GfK Roper Public Affairs & Media. While most pet owners, 62 percent, would likely get vet care if the bill was $500, the percentage drops below half when the cost hits $1,000. The number drops to 35 percent if the cost is $2,000 and to 22 percent if it reaches $5,000. Only at the $500 level are dog owners (74 percent) more likely than cat owners (46 percent) to say they would likely seek treatment. In the higher price ranges, the two are about equally likely to seek vet care. “Grief gets complicated when we can’t do everything we would have liked to do for our animal,” s a i d v e t e r i n a r i a n J a n e S h a w, director of the Argus Institute in the College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo. That’s especially true in hard economic times, when spending money you don’t have on an animal can have a lasting impact on children, the mortgage, grocery bills, heating bills. “Euthanasia is always sad but when finances have to be considered, when you feel there is a possibility you didn’t or couldn’t do the right thing, you feel guilty,” Shaw said. “We are at a point where we are talking about basic life needs or survival needs.” Terry Cornwell, 55, of Newport, Ore., has had to put down a couple of pets, but none was harder than a dog that was diagnosed with cancer. “My income decides a lot of my expenses,” she said. So far, her current year-old cocker mix, Buddy, and her 8-yearold cat, Boo Kitty, have had few health problems. Cornwell would do everything she could, but if a vet told her surgery was her only option and she had to have the money up front, “I would be done. There would be nothing I could do
June 24, 2010
about it.” Cornwell does worry, though. So do one in five pet owners who said they fret a lot about being unable to afford seeing a vet. Dog owners are more likely to worry than cat owners, and women and low-income people are among the biggest worriers. “If they start getting into expensive vet bills, there’s nothing I can do. I have no options. If you are talking about something like serious cancer, you’re putting the animal through a whole lot of stuff that’s iffy anyhow and it’s not fair to them,” she said. About one in four people, or 27 percent, said pet insurance is a good way to save money on vet bills, though that’s five times the number who actually carry insurance on their pets. Diego Negrete, 26, of Austin, Texas, has insurance on his 4-yearold fox terrier, Roxy, and his 2year-old cat, Charley, but he’s in the minority. Ninety-five percent of those polled said they didn’t have insurance. “It’s a nice cushion to have,” he said of the policy that covers all yearly shots and checkups for about half what they would normally cost. It also pays for part of the costs of different problems, he said, although he didn’t know all the details. But Negrete doesn’t fear vet bills. “I’m not worried at all because the insurance would cover part of it and I am financially capable of covering whatever it costs,” he said. However, if you are looking upward of $5,000, “something must be seriously wrong,” Negrete said. He would have to look at how much the animal would suffer through the problem, and how the recovery could go. And he would want some assurance the pet would have a good life later. Negrete had a 14-year-old dog who’d had a hernia removed twice. When it grew back a third time, “he was old and about done and he was in pain, so we put him down,” he said. Meg Fowler, 63, of Port St. Lucie, Fla., is a retired insurance agent, “so I know the risks.” If something catastrophic happened to leave her 10-yearold cockapoo, Jasmine, in a lot of pain, “We would have to put her down,” Fowler said. “It would be much more humane. Jasmine is a huge part of our lives and we adore her. But she is a dog. It is hard to remember that, as much as I believe she has a soul.” Before Jasmine, there was Max, another cockapoo. When he was 15, he got a brain tumor. Their vet helped them come to grips with a decision that no insurance could have cushioned — euthanasia. For Fowler and her husband of 43 years, “It was the hardest day of
our lives. We had no choice in that situation. There was no lifesaving surgery and the dog was way over his life span. It was a difficult decision, but it had to be done and we did it,” she said. When quality of life has diminished and there is severe pain and suffering, the time has come to start making decisions, Shaw said. In the final hours, it helps some
people to share one last special time with an animal — a trip through a fast food drive-thru for a hamburger, a bath, a dish of homemade ice cream — something familiar to the pet, she said. Some will take a hair clipping or clay pawprint to help build a bridge and foster the grief process. Others will arrange for euthanasia to happen at home so the pet can be surrounded by every member of
the family, including other animals, Shaw said. But nothing will completely ease the ache, she said, because guilt is part of the cost of caring deeply. The AP-Petside.com Poll was conducted April 7-12, 2010, and involved landline and cell phone interviews with 1,112 pet owners nationwide. It has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points.

Dining Delights Mr. Curry – purveyor of Indian delights By STEVE HORRELL Of The Edge In a corner of the kitchen at Mr. Curry’s Gourmet Indian Restaurant is a clay tandoor oven, with inner walls that slope down to a pit where temperatures can easily top 900 degrees. On a counter nearby is a slab of naan that Bash Anoth, who has owned and operated the restaurant for nearly four years, is rolling into a pear-shaped piece of flat bread, not-too-thin and with a taste to die for. Anoth takes the naan and presses it against the inside of the oven wall, where it will cling for the next 30 seconds. “If you cook it 10 seconds more, it will be burned, if you cook it 10 seconds less, it will be inedible. It’s very sensitive,” Anoth says. Using a pair of skewers, he fishes the naan out. It has a chewy consistency, and the intense heat has imbued it with characteristic golden brown splotches. Naan is one of the most popular items on the Mr. Curry’s menu. In northern India, it has long been a staple, but growing up as he did in the tropical southwestern region of Kerala, Anoth had few opportunities to try it. Apart from the food itself, what most people come to Mr. Curry’s for is to glimpse the tandoor. Before the naan reaches the tandoor, Mr. Curry cooks, who surprisingly often are college honors students, make the dough up 25 pounds at a time, mixing flour with touches of baking, powder, salt, sugar, milk and eggs. The dough is kneaded, set aside for a few hours to rise, and divided into balls. What else is a tandoor good for? For one thing, tandoori chicken. It has some of Indian cuisine’s tastiest ingredients: turmeric, corriander powder, garam masala, c h i l i p o w d e r, y o g u r t . A f t e r blending, the chicken is marinated with them for 48 hours. Then the pieces - upper thighs and lower legs, mostly - are slid onto a long skewer and stuck into the tandoor. ••• On a fall day in 2006, Mr. Curry’s Gourmet Indian Restaurant opened quietly near the outskirts of Edwardsville. Two years earlier, Anoth had planned to open an Indian restaurant across town, on Route 157. He had leased a building near the McDonald’s’ restaurant, but the project was delayed, and eventually fizzled out. On this particular morning his realtor mentioned a singlestory red brick commercial home that had come on the market along Route 143, near the Edwardsville Moose Lodge. With nothing else to do, he agreed to take a look. “All the trees were there. The gazebo was there. When I walked in, I just fell in love with this,” says Anoth, a soft-spoken man

who treats guests with an unfailing deference. “ I t w a s l i k e ‘ Wo w ! T h i s i s nice! I gave him an offer in five minutes and didn’t even think about whether a restaurant would work here. I’m glad I didn’t think through it. If I did, I don’t think I would have started here.” The property was zoned commercial. For the building to become a restaurant, though, changes were in order. Restrooms w e re a d d e d , a n d a s p r i n k l e r system installed in the basement. Parking spaces were created along the side. In all, the upgrade took a year, mostly because Anoth spent so much of his time on the road with his real job as a consultant for
U.S. “At that time it was totally free, we didn’t even charge for shipping,” he says. “I think it was when I hit about 150,000 orders that I took the page down.” For a while, most of the spice mixes came from his mother, who ground them back home in Kerala. But after a while it began to dawn on him that many of the packets were probably going unused; as a result he began selling them for $1 apiece, the price he sells them for to this day. ••• Most of the spices used at Mr. Curry’s - ginger, turmeric, cumin, coriander, chili, cardamom and
The food at Mr. Curry’s is only moderately spicy. On the back of the menu is a “Spiciness/Hotness Option Meter” scaled from 1 (”extra mild”) to 5 (”extra hot”). Anoth has fiddled with the recipes for years, and today Mr. Curry’s food is a 3 (”medium”). As an example, Anoth points to cumin. “For people who grew up with the cumin flavor, it’s heaven,” Anoth says. “People who have never had it, can’t eat that way. With too much cumin, everything else - the ginger, garlic, turmeric - all those things are gone. All you can taste is cumin.” Spices, he says, are like cultures. With the proper amount of respect, “there is so much we can learn

Owner Bash Anoth cooks up a dish at Mr. Curry’s Gourmet Indian Restaurant in Edwardsville. Anderson Consulting and could only make it back to Edwardsville once a month. ••• The idea for Mr. Curry’s came to Anoth when he attended Bradley University in Peoria. At the time, the community had a large international mix, and cultural diversity events were frequent. He attended often, and began to notice that whenever food was served “we had like 200 percent extra participation,” Anoth says with a laugh. Friends began calling him Mr. Curry for the curry dishes he often brought along. Around 1998, he created a Web site, www.mrcurrys.com. On its pages he began offering free curry powder, “not thinking that anyone would look at it.” It wasn’t long before the requests began rolling in from all over: places like Russia, Germany, England, but also the
others - are grown on the grounds of a sprawling spice ranch in Kerala. Kerala has a long history as a spice trading center for Europe and Asia, which accounts for its mix today of Christians, Jews and Muslims. “They brought their religions with them, and that makes Kerala a little different form other parts of India,” Anoth says. “Very multicultural, very multireligious, and highly literate.” The spices, of course, play a vital role in Indian cuisine. People whose only brush with Indian food is a plate of chili chicken or beef vindaloo might assume - wrongly that the name of the game in Indian cooking is maximum heat. While that might be true for authentic Indian food, the odds are slim that scorching-hot Indian cuisine will ever gain much of a toe-hold in American culture. •••
from another ’s culture,” he says. But other cultures are often simply feared, and what predominates are war and fighting. “Spices are the same way,” he says. “If you mix them properly, you can make very nice blended flavors and tastes. It’s amazing what comes out of it. If you don’t mix it properly, if you do too much, there is no taste in it.” ••• T h e re c i p e s a t M r. C u r r y ’ s Gourmet Indian Restaurant are uniquely his own. Consistency is the goal. Diners have come to trust that lamb korma curry ordered on a Monday will taste the same as a lamb korma curry ordered on Wednesday because cooks strictly adhere to the recipes, Anoth says. In the early days, Mr. Curry recipes were aimed at individuals or small group settings. After about six months of fiddling, he arrived at the standardized recipes he uses
today. To e n s u re t h a t d i n n e r s a re consistent, timing is everything. The measuring of spices must be precise; should a cook measuring spices such as chili powder or corriander, lose his concentration because of an interruption, the food simply won’t taste right, he says. Anoth’s usual manner is to bounce from kitchen to dining room and back, often speaking with customers one minute, excusing himself, and dashing back to the kitchen to taste the next course. By tasting it, he can often tell if anything’s amiss. Dishes that stay on the flame too long, or not long enough, can bring equally disastrous results. “It has to be long enough to get the flavor to come out, but if it cooks longer, that could burn it,” he says. “Not long enough, it won’t have the full flavor.” Key to getting the flavor right is the use of fresh ingredients. Chicken comes fresh from the supplier. Garlic is ground fresh, and as for garlic, only peeled garlic is used. It’s more expensive “but it makes it better,” he says. ••• Anoth probably would not have understood the American palate that way he does today had his family not moved from Kerala to New York when he was a youth. He studied electrical engineering in Kerala and New York, and after receiving his MBA he moved to San Francisco. Had he grown up only in Kerala, he says, he likely would have considered curry the center of the culinary universe. The restaurant that he opened would have served only spicy, authentic Indian food, and it likely would have been in San Francisco or Chicago or some other metropolitan area. That certainly would have been more profitable. But Mr. Curry’s is a hobby, he says, the one part of his life that isn’t about money. On weekday evenings, entrees range from $6.95 (chana masala and vegetable biryani) to $9.95 (prawn tikka masala, among others). On Saturdays and Sundays, Mr. Curry’s has a lunch buffet, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The buffet has the sort of pricing that allows families to bring both kids and grandparents, he says. That fact, Anoth says, gives him more pleasure than if he made a million dollars. “It’s like, ‘We really did something,’ which is why I think this is working” he says. “The goal was to get everybody to try something different. It just happened that curry was s o m e t h i n g t h a t I k n e w. T h e purpose is to make people open, and if they are open to something then they will be more accepting of people and other cultures.” Anoth pauses. “It’s like a small step that will go a long way in the future.”

Elegant dining with a decor reminiscent of the glamours ‘40s. Most of the traditional Italian dishes but additional gourmet Italian fare that is fantastic to the pallet. The Linguine Pinoli, includes shrimp, mushrooms, spinach, pine nuts, lemon butter and garlic, is a tasty combination over fresh linguine. The bread is fresh and wonderful. A little pricier than a family restaurant, but well worth the price for a nice date night or special night out.

Dining Delights Put some sizzle in your summer sandwiches By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor Rick Bayless’ goal was simple — the best of Mexico and the U.S. in one delicious burger. To get from dream to dinner plate, the man famous for showing Americans just how good — and even upscale — Mexican food can be, drew inspiration from queso fundido, an appetizer of melted cheese, onions, chilies and sometimes meat. “I love cheeseburgers and I love Mexican queso fundido, so my concept was to bring the two things together,” he said via email. “My favorite queso fundido involves melted cheese with chorizo sausage, roasted poblano chilies and caramelized onions.” So Bayless — whose restaurants include Frontera Grill and Topolobampo in Chicago — decided to deconstruct the queso fundido a bit, adding the chorizo to the burger itself and using the melted cheese, roasted peppers and caramelized onions as toppings. “For me, it needs to be grilled and have a nice balance between bun and meat,” said Bayless, who recently prepared President Barack Obama’s second state dinner. “Too much of either isn’t good, nor is too many add-ons. Balance is key, both in ingredients and flavors.” QUESO FUNDIDO BURGER Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 4 2 fresh medium poblano chilies 2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil 1 medium yellow onion, sliced into 1/4-inch slices 2 cloves garlic, minced Salt 1 1/2 pounds ground chuck 8 ounces chorizo, crumbled and cooked (browned in a skillet) 1 to 2 canned chipotle chilies in adobo, finely minced (seeded if desired) 8 thick slices Monterey Jack cheese 4 hamburger buns, lightly toasted One at a time, use tongs to hold the chilies over a gas burner, turning until well charred, about 5 minutes. You also can set the chilies under a broiler for about 10 minutes, turning regularly. Place the chilies in a bowl, cover with a kitchen towel and let cool. Rub off the blackened skin and pull out and discard the stems and seed pods. Cut the chilies into 1/4inch strips. In a medium skillet over medium, heat the oil. Add the onion and saute until it begins to brown, 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic and poblanos and cook for 2 minutes. Season with salt, usually about 1/2 teaspoon. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cover to keep warm. In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, cooked chorizo, chipotles and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Mix until well combined. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and
June 24, 2010
form into patties. Heat a gas grill to medium-high, or light a charcoal fire and let it burn until the charcoal is covered with white ash (about medium hot); bank the coals to one side. Place the hamburger patties on the grill and cook for a total of 4 to 5 minutes for medium rare. Lay one piece of cheese on top of each burger, top with the warm onions and chilies, then another piece of cheese. Close the lid of the grill and continue cooking until the cheese has melted, about 1 minute. Remove from the grill and slide onto a toasted bun.

I wanted something with a totally different — dare I say, meaty — texture. Because face it, sloppy joes may be tasty, but the flavor and texture of whatever meat goes into them usually gets lost beneath a heavy sauce. So rather than use ground meat, I opted for chopped. About 10 seconds in the food processor was all it took to get meaty chunks perfect for piling onto a bun. I opted for pork because. Well, that’s what I had handy. As if you never cook way. But I did test the approach later with beef. It was good, but it was a little too steaklike, as though it should have cheese on it instead of sauce. Pork loin cutlets and boneless country-style pork ribs produced the best results. To keep things easy, I used bottled barbecue sauce, which produced incredibly savory, sweet, tangy joes. You also could substitute your own by blending tomato paste, garlic powder, salt, pepper, brown sugar, cumin and a bit of cider vinegar. BARBECUE PORKY JOES Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 1 pound pork loin cutlets (or other lean cut of pork) 1 tablespoon canola oil 1 medium yellow onion, diced 1 green bell pepper, cored and diced 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce 4 hamburger buns Place the pork in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the pork in short bursts until well chopped, but not finely ground. In a large skillet over mediumhigh, heat the oil. Add the onion and pepper and saute for 6 minutes. Add the pork and saute until lightly browned and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the barbecue sauce, then serve on the buns.
