Artistic Adventures Harry Potter Film Concert Series returning The Harry Potter Film Concert Series returns to Powell Hall with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra performing Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in Concert on Sept. 14, 15 and 16, 2018, and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in Concert on April 12, 13 and 14, 2019, the fourth and fifth films in the Harry Potter series. The SLSO will perform the magical scores from “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” and “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” while each film plays in highdefinition on a 40-foot screen. CineConcerts and Warner Bros. Consumer Products announced the Harry Potter Film Concert Series, a new global concert tour celebrating the Harry Potter films, in 2016. Since the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in Concert in June 2016, more than half a million fans have enjoyed this magical experience from J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, which is scheduled to include over six-hundred performances across more than 38 countries worldwide through 2018. In “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,”

Harry Potter is mysteriously entered into the Triwizard Tournament, a grueling contest among three wizarding schools in which he confronts a dragon, water demons and an enchanted maze only to find himself in Lord Voldemort’s grasp. All will change when Harry, Ron and Hermione leave childhood forever and face challenges beyond their imagining. Winning both the International Film Music Critics AWARD (IFMCA) and ASCAP Film and Television Music Award for the score, the rich tapestry of music composed by Patrick Doyle (Brave, Hamlet, Sense and Sensibility) brought fresh emotional gravitas with darker melodic undercurrents as Harry Potter, Ron, and Hermione face these new adventures. In “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” the rebellion begins. Lord Voldemort is back, but the Ministry of Magic tries to keep a lid on the truth — including appointing a new, power-hungry Defence Against the Dark Arts professor at Hogwarts. Ron and Hermione convince Harry to secretly train students for the wizarding war ahead. A terrifying showdown between good and evil awaits! Nominated for a World Soundtrack Discovery Award, composer Nicholas Hooper uses experimental techniques and unique instru-

ments to compose two new main themes reflecting not only Dolores Umbridge but Voldermort’s inflection into Harry’s psyche. By using Japanese Taiko drums, a deeper and more nefarious undercurrent permeates the magical adventure of Harry and his friends as they prepare for the wizarding war ahead. Justin Freer, President of CineConcerts and Producer/Conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series explains, “The Harry Potter film series is a once-in-a-lifetime cultural phenomenon that continues to delight millions of fans around the world. It is with great pleasure that we bring fans for the first time ever an opportunity to experience the awardwinning music scores played live by a symphony orchestra, all while the beloved film is simultaneously projected onto the big screen. This is truly an unforgettable event.” Brady Beaubien of CineConcerts and Concert Producer for the Harry Potter Film Concert Series added, “Harry Potter is synonymous with excitement around the world and we hope that by performing this incredible music with the full movie, audiences will enjoy returning to the Wizarding World.” Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. April 18 via www. slso.org and 314-534-1700 for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in Concert and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix in Concert.

Still yearning for his one true love and musical protégée Christine Daae, he lures her, Raoul and their son Gustave to the Island, setting up a thrilling rollercoaster ride of intrigue, obsession and romance. Audiences will be seduced by the beautiful, sometimes magical and poetic, sometimes joyful, and occasionally melancholic score as this magnificent continuation of one of the world’s greatest love stories as it makes its St. Louis premiere.

On the Edge of the Weekend • Thursday, June 28, 2018 • 27

Movies

June ends with two good films

By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge

I had a pretty good weekend seeing two new movies, bookending my time with “Incredibles 2” on Thursday’s opening night and sneaking off for a Monday matinee of the goofy comedy “Tag”. It’s always a pleasure to see such capable counterprogramming when both films are above average and my expectations were already running a little on the high side. “Incredibles”, in fact, supplanted “Finding Dory” by having the highest opening weekend gross for an animated movie at $182 million. Full disclosure: I don’t remember much about “The Incredibles” or necessarily even liking it all that much. Pixar’s late 2000s movies (“Cars”, “Ratatouille”, “Wall-E”) didn’t really do much for me before the studio rebounded with “Up” and “Toy Story 3” to continue their triumphant hot streak unabated. For millions of others, though, it

was a boon and they’ve obviously responded strongly to the new sequel which is set continuously from the original’s ending. Members of the heroic Parr family (Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell’s Violet, newcomer Huck Milner as Dash) are on the outs after a rescue with fellow super Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson) destroys their city and has them down in the dumps. Part 2 is a rather mundane story told in a James Bond/Buck Rogers sort of format that sees Elastigirl (Hunter) off on a solo assignment while Mr. Incredible (Nelson) gets to stay closer to home and watch out for the older kids and the now super-powered baby Jack-Jack (who goes toe-to-toe with a raccoon in one of the more boffo parts of the film). Overall, the movie is actually incredible, if not all that creative. Still, it does make excellent use of the family-and-duty-first message, portrays violence in a responsible, kid-appropriate kind of way, and allows writer/director Brad Bird to reprise his role as the snarky

with businessman Bob (Jon Hamm), stoner Chilli (Jake Johnson), and the depressed Sable (Hannibal Buress) so that they can team up to take down their buddy Jerry (Jeremy Renner), the only undefeated member of the group, during his upcoming May 31st wedding to “Tag” is based on a 2013 article in the Wall Susan (Leslie Bibb). Street Journal about a group of friends who spend a whole month each year continuing a Sitting there, laughing at the antics of these game of playground tag they started as chilfully grown children had me feeling great despite, even, some really sticky jokes about dren growing up in Spokane in the early 80s. miscarriages and Hoagie’s mom (Nora Dunn) They plan elaborate entrapment scenarios, having the hots for Chilli. Then some real life pop up in unexpected places, put their lives footage of the group (ten participants in reality, and jobs and relationships on hold (or don’t) including a priest, all older than our movies to perpetuate the notion that playing will keep them young in a way that honors a quote stars) was interspersed throughout the closabout adulthood that they continuously misat- ing credits. This is when the actual meaning of what they were doing choked me up. You tribute to Benjamin Franklin. For Hoagie (Ed Helms), May’s annual resumption of the game can’t always keep your friends close, but if you is what he lives for. His hypercompetitive wife always try, then something great might happen. Anna (Isla Fisher) even pushes him onward “Tag” runs 110 minutes and is rated R for lanand joins in the mirth vicariously. The movie guage throughout, crude sexual content, drug use, uses a mix of emotion and revenge to draw in and brief nudity. I give this film three stars out of the viewer, following Hoagie as he reunites four.

“Damsel” is an offbeat odyssey

By JAKE COYLE AP Film Writer

Pitiful men pin their hopes on delusions of romance in David and Nathan Zellner’s clever and melancholy western “Damsel,” an offbeat odyssey about the foolhardiness of believing in the “damsel in distress.” The Zellner brothers’ last film, “Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter,” was based on an urban legend about a Japanese woman who, believing the Coen brothers’ “Fargo” to be a true story, travels to wintery North Dakota to find the buried case of cash left by Steve Buscemi’s character. That movie, patiently idiosyncratic, found some poignancy in an absurd, ambling tale about fatally misguided misconceptions, and much is the same in the offbeat “Damsel.” Almost everybody but Mia Wasikowska — the “damsel” in question — is tilting at windmills.

The Zellners, who wrote, directed and costar in the film, have moved to the Old West but the Coens are still close at hand. In lesser, hit-or-miss doses, “Damsel” has imitated some of their verbal theatricality and straightfaced comedy. The “Waiting for Godot”-style opening is one of the movie’s high points. A defeatedlooking preacher (a briefly seen but terrific Robert Forster) joins a man headed West at a comically remote stagecoach stop in the middle of a Monument Valley desert. Before stripping out of his clothes and handing his half-empty Bible (pages have been torn out for kindling, rolling papers and, he bashfully adds, “hygiene”) to the traveler, he warns the man that life in the West is no better than anywhere else, just bad in “new and fascinating ways.” He then runs off in his long underwear, calling to the Lord. It’s an omen that no one in “Damsel” heeds:

Look neither toward the West, nor a woman, for your self-reinvention, your “fresh start.” Soon arriving is Robert Pattinson’s Samuel Alabaster, a stranger in town, who enlists Parson Henry (David Zellner) — the Monument Valley traveler, having inherited the pastor’s robe and Bible — to marry him and his fiancee, Penelope (Wasikowska). With a gold tooth and a miniature horse named Butterscotch, Pattinson gives the film a kick that it lacks when he departs. His Alabaster is prim, peculiar and possibly psychotic. Believing himself gallant, he has a song prepared for Penelope dubbed “Honey Bun.” Sample lyric: “You’re my horseshoe to my hoof.” It’s well into the journey when Alabaster confesses Penelope has been kidnapped, so their mission is a combination rescue-proposal. His wide-eyed ardor for Penelope begins to grow suspiciously shallow. She’s “good at reading words, even good at kissing and

lovemaking,” he says. “What more could you ask for?” The proposal, naturally, doesn’t go quite as “lickety-split” as Alabaster envisions, and Henry — a gentle and half-formed man who naively craves the adventure of meeting “a real Indian” — is carried along by the unfolding events. That he isn’t a real man of God is little surprise to anyone. “But my heart is the right place,” he whimpers. But, then again, none in “Damsel” are really quite up to the role they imagine themselves in, except for Wasikowka’s Penelope — the only sane person in the movie crowded with fools.

“Damsel,” a Magnolia Pictures release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “some violence, language, sexual material, and brief graphic nudity.” Running time: 113 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.

“Incredibles 2”

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

“The Incredibles” writer/director Brad Bird has said that his characters’ powers are all born of stereotypes. Dad is strong, mom is stretched in a million directions, teenage girls put up shields, little boys are full of boundless energy and babies are unpredictable. It’s why he decided that for the sequel, “Incredibles 2 ,” a buoyant and quick-witted romp, he’d pick up right where we left off, in that parking lot after Dash’s track meet where a new threat emerges from underground. No matter that in reality, 14 years had actually passed. Animation is not bound by time or aging actors. For the rest of us, however, 14 years is still 14 years. And in the past 14 years, the business of Hollywood has become the business of superhero movies. It’s hard to remember a time when there weren’t a dozen a year. But when “The Incredibles” came out in 2004, they were still a bit of an anomaly at the multiplex — its cheeky, mockumentary realism, its jokes about capes, secret identities, “monologue-ing” and the dangers of toxic, obsessive fandom was the perfect introduction (and indoctrination) to superheroes for those who couldn’t care less. Pixar magic made superhero believers out of the skeptics. And by 2008, we all thought, sure, let’s see about this Tony Stark fellow and someone called Iron Man. In “Incredibles 2,” it seems like Bird himself is wrestling with a culture he helped facilitate — not totally dissimilar to what Steven Spielberg did earlier this year in “Ready Player One.” RATED: PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for “action sequences and some brief mild language.” RUNNING TIME: 118 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“The King”

It’s usually a bad sign when critics start questioning your film before it’s even finished. But director Eugene Jarecki had to endure worse. While making the documentary “The King,” he actually got gruff from a member of his own film crew. After a car breaks down, Jarecki takes the opportunity to ask the driver of the truck hauling it to be fixed what he thinks of the film so far. The crewman responds that he’s not sure what Jarecki’s intention is and doesn’t really buy the tenuous analogy he’s developed so far. Who needs film critics, huh? Credit Jarecki for including the exchange in his meandering, overstuffed and sometimes fascinating film about Elvis Presley and America. The director seems to acknowledge that he may have bitten off way too much here but he still thinks the idea is worth chewing. The idea is this: Get Elvis’ old 1963 Rolls-Royce and invite a wide group of people to sit in its back seat and talk about Presley as they drive through key locations in The King’s life, from his lowly beginnings in Tupelo, Mississippi, to his sad end in Graceland. So far, so good. We get Emmylou Harris to call him a “Greek tragic figure” and Chuck D to explain why he once wrote blistering lyrics that Elvis was no “hero to me.” John Hiatt even starts to cry in the back seat, profoundly sad for a fellow musician who was “trapped” in his fame. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “for language, some disturbing images and brief drug use.” RUNNING TIME: Running time: 109 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One star out of four.

“The King” guilty of excess

By MARK KENNEDY AP Entertainment Writer

It’s usually a bad sign when critics start questioning your film before it’s even finished. But director Eugene Jarecki had to endure worse. While making the documentary “The King,” he actually got gruff from a member of his own film crew. After a car breaks down, Jarecki takes the opportunity to ask the driver of the truck hauling it to be fixed what he thinks of the film so far. The crewman responds that he’s not sure what Jarecki’s intention is and doesn’t really buy the tenuous analogy he’s developed so far. Who needs film critics, huh? Credit Jarecki for including the exchange in his meandering, overstuffed and sometimes fascinating film about Elvis Presley and America. The director seems to acknowledge that he may have bitten off way too much here but he still thinks the idea is worth chewing. The idea is this: Get Elvis’ old 1963 RollsRoyce and invite a wide group of people to sit in its back seat and talk about Presley as they drive through key locations in The King’s life, from his lowly beginnings in Tupelo, Mississippi, to his sad end in Graceland. So far, so good. We get Emmylou Harris to call him a “Greek tragic figure” and Chuck D to explain why he once wrote blistering lyrics that Elvis was no “hero to me.” John Hiatt even starts to cry in the back seat, profoundly sad for a fellow musician who was “trapped” in his fame.

But Jarecki seems to want more, something deeper and profounder. Perhaps the rise and fall of Elvis Presley is a reflection of postWorld War II America as it morphed from small to imperial to then sick and bloated? Maybe he’s even a reflection of the history of the entire country — from poor and fragile in 1776 to the hottest thing on the planet as a superpower to later addicted to pills and destined to die on a golden toilet at age 42? All this plays out as the Clinton-Trump election comes to its nail-biting conclusion, complete with CNN and Fox news announcements about the race, muddying the focus of the film. Are we Fat Elvis? Is Trump? Throughout “The King ,” you can feel Jarecki desperately working, slicing, trying to make connections. What could have been a gentle, personal travelogue is reworked and reworked until it’s often guilty of the last sin of Elvis — excess. This film is cluttered with half-thoughts and tenuous connections, like footage from 1933’s “King Kong” making frequent appearances without much purpose. (The King. In New York. OK, we get it). The best parts are when African-American critics like Chuck D and Van Jones dig into Elvis, a man who made a fortune taking black music and making it palatable for whites.

“The King,” an Oscilloscope Labratories release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “for language, some disturbing images and brief drug use.” Running time: 109 minutes. One star out of four.

Dining Delights

Recreating some family favorites For The Edge Reminiscing about childhood and reflecting on special occasions with family often conjures up memories of bonding over favorite meals. For St. Louis District Dairy Council’s (SLDDC) Nutrition Educators who work “in the field” on behalf of local dairy farmers, those meal memories often include dairy treats and dishes. “As a child, I remember drinking milk at the dinner table (with an occasional spill!), eating ice cream cones, making homemade ice cream, and indulging in cheesy casseroles,” recalls Nutrition Educator and registered dietitian Erin McGraw. Over the past 85 years, SLDDC has built lasting and cherished memories implementing programs in schools and beyond. Covering 131 counties in Illinois and Missouri, the organization’s focus remains teaching consumers how dairy fits into a healthy lifestyle. Since working for SLDDC, Nutrition Educator McGraw has made thousands, of personal visits with educators, health professionals and the media. “I really enjoy the variety of my role and being able to promote dairy in local communities,” states McGraw. Working with farmers to dispel dairy myths is an important part of being a nutrition educator for SLDDC. Consumers have questions about how their food is grown and as a result, on-farm practices. “It is critical for consumers to trust that information is reliable and supported by science”, states McGraw. “As educators, we have the opportunity to share how farms and processing plants operate, which adds another layer of transparency to the industry.” Each day, SLDDC nutrition educators work hard to help Missouri and Illinois residents make the best choices for their taste buds and their health. It is an organizational priority to provide the most reliable, up to date information, and to remain a trustworthy source of knowledge. Recommending 3 servings of dairy per day is the easy part; trying to figure out which delicious combination of dairy to choose each day can be a bit more challenging.

Tuning In Anita Baker to perform at The Fox Anita Baker, multi-Grammy Award-winning singer, announces a performance in St. Louis at the Fabulous Fox Theatre on Sunday, July 22, at 7 p.m. as part of her Farewell Concert Series. Regarded as one of the most popular vocalists of soulful romantic ballads, and an integral part in helping to launch the quiet storm period of contemporary R&B in the 1980s, Anita Baker’s career spans over three decades and includes eight Grammy Awards, four American Music Awards, seven Soul Train Awards, seven platinum albums and six world tours. Tickets will be available at metrotix.com, by calling 314-534-1111 or at the Fabulous Fox box office (531 North Grand Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63103). Ticket prices start at $59.50. Anita Baker was born on Jan. 26, 1958, in Toledo, Ohio, and grew up in Detroit, Michigan. She began singing in her church choir when she was 12 and sang in a local group with her high school friends at 16. In 1975, she successfully auditioned for the group Chapter 8, having been approached by bass player David Washington, and spent the next few years playing in and around Detroit. In 1981, she signed to Otis Smith’s Beverly Glenn label, releasing her debut album “Songstress” in 1983, which featured her signature song “Angel.” In 1986, she signed with Elektra

Records and, understanding that creative control was essential, functioned as executive producer on her megahit album “Rapture,” which sold over 6 million records worldwide. The album went multi-platinum and practically all of its tracks found rotation on nationwide radio playlists, including the tender “Caught Up in the Rapture” and “Same Ole Love (365 Days a Year).” This album brought her first two Grammy Awards for Best R&B Female Performance for the album “Rapture” and Best R&B Song for “Sweet Love,” a Top10 Pop and No. 2 R&B hit. In 1987, Anita began work on her followup album “Giving You The Best That I Got” in between an extremely busy performance schedule. This album was also awarded three Grammy Awards. She took a more involved role in the songwriting for her third album “Compositions,” also moving towards experimenting with jazz. The album contained seven self-penned songs and was mostly cut live. The album would go on to win her a seventh Grammy Award for Best R&B Female Performance. In 1993, Anita started working on her next project “Rhythm of Love,” on which she wrote five out of the 12 songs. In September 1994, the album was released and Anita received an eighth Grammy Award for Best R&B Song (“I Apologize”) in 1995. In 2004, Anita released “My Everything” for Blue Note Records. In 2005, Baker released “Christmas Fantasy,” receiving a Grammy Award nomination for the song “Christ-

Georgia showcases Cherokee history For The Edge New Echota State Historic Site in Calhoun, Georgia was the capitol of the Cherokee Nation from 1825 until the forced removal of the Cherokees in the 1830s. Abandoned for over 100 years, New Echota now serves as an important landmark and testimony to the rich history of the Cherokee people, including their persecution. New Echota is one of the most significant Cherokee Indian sites in the nation and was where the tragic “Trail of Tears” officially began. In 1825, the Cherokee national legislature established a capital called New Echota at the headwaters of the Oostanaula River. During its short history, New Echota was the site of the first Indian language newspaper office, a court case which carried to the U.S. Supreme Court, one of the earliest experiments in national self government by an Indian tribe, the signing of a treaty which relinquished Cherokee claims to lands east of the Mississippi River, and the assembly of Indians for removal west on the infamous Trail of Tears. Today, visitors can see 12 original and reconstructed buildings, including the Council House, Court House, Print Shop, Missionary Samuel Worcester’s home, and an 1805 store, as well as outbuildings such as smoke houses, corn cribs and barns. In the visitor center, guest can purchase souvenirs, books, music, plus view interpretive exhibits and a 17 minute film. Nature trails leads visitors to New Town Creek and a small beaver pond. Facilities • Visitor Center & Film • Reconstructed Buildings •Bus Parking • Coosawattee River Boat Ramp Visitors may fish, or take a self-guided tour or enjoy one of the nature trails. Hours are Wednesday–Saturday 9 a.m to 5 p.m. Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. Historic Site Admission is: Adults (18–61): $7, Seniors (62+): $6.50, Youth (6–17): $5.50 Group rates and tours available with advance notice. For more information, call 706-624-1321

People planner Gateway Arch Park launches new website The Gateway Arch Park Foundation has launched a new website (ArchPark.org) highlighting the renovated spaces at Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, Gateway Arch, riverfront, and Kiener Plaza — together referred to as Gateway Arch Park. The new website also highlights public events, the Foundation’s membership program and ways the community can support the Arch. While the previous site conveyed the CityArchRiver project and construction updates, the new site focusses on completed park spaces and how the public can enjoy and support the new Arch experience. Visitors can learn about the legacy of the historic CityArchRiver project on an interactive timeline. Popular features from the old website

remain, such as the interactive webcams. “We want folks to see that this is their park to enjoy and use with many activities and events all year,” said Ryan McClure, director of communications and activation for Gateway Arch Park Foundation. The website makes it easy for visitors to find events in the Gateway Arch Park area and find information on planning their own event – public or private. Visitors can also support the mission of the Gateway Arch Park Foundation by becoming a Gateway Arch Park Friend or shop for new merchandise on the Foundation’s online store – including two new t-shirts designed by STL Style House. In early 2018, the Foundation, working with the National Park Service, will launch a new section of the website featuring stories from the new Museum at the Gateway Arch, which will have a grand opening July 4.

Alton’s Beall Mansion honored For The Edge The Beall Mansion An Elegant Bed and Breakfast Inn announced today that it has received a 2018 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and Hall of Fame Award. “With the Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor honors hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travelers,” said Heather Leisman, TripAdvisor Vice President of Industry Marketing. “This recognition helps travelers identify and book properties that regularly deliver great service. TripAdvisor is proud to play this integral role in helping travelers feel more confident in their booking decisions.” The Certificate of Excellence is based on the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. The Hall of Fame honor is for those businesses that have earned a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years. Beall Mansion owners, Jim and Sandy Belote, commented, “We are truly humbled. Running a successful, upscale, boutique lodging property is a 7 day a week, 365 day a year job that takes the hard work, pride, and commitment of an entire staff. We thank them as well as the tens of thousands of loyal guests who have stayed at The Beall Mansion and made it all possible. The Beall Mansion has received a long list of honors and awards including a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence every year since its inception.

Redbird Express returns to St. Clair Square

The St. Clair County Transit District (SCCTD) announced the return of the popular Redbird Express bus service from St. Clair Square for the 2018 St. Louis Cardinals season. Bus service will be available for all St. Louis Cardinals home games. Parking in Downtown St. Louis for games can range from $15-40 or more. In addition, St. Clair County Transit takes the stress out of game day traffic, bridge construction, parking, gas expenses and more, by allowing game goers to sit back and enjoy the ride to and from the game. Details on the 2018 Red Bird Express are available at www.ssctd.org. Busses will depart from St. Clair Square, near the water tower, 2.5 hours before game time as busses fill, with the last bus leaving one hour before the game begins. Fares are currently $5.00 per adult, and $2.00 for children ages 2 thru 12. Early departure from Busch Stadium is available once the bus fills up. “This program has always been popular with our Cardinals fans. It is so easy to get

to Ball Park Village early enough to enjoy a beverage and a meal before the game, and the bus will be there, right where you left it, after the game,” said Chairman of St. Clair County Transit District Board Richard Meile. “We believe this program makes transit more accessible to the public. It allows riders to try our transit system they may not use every day, and see the potential for how transit can positively impact their everyday commute. Getting people to the places they want and need to go is always the goal, and SCCTD can take them there,” said Meile. Ken Sharkey is the new Managing Director of the St. Clair County Transit District. Founded in 1981, St. Clair County Transit District oversees 11 MetroLink stations and 17 bus routes in St. Clair County, IL. If commuters have any questions about service, they can contact (618) 628-8090 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday – Fri-® day. For more information visit www. scctd.org.

Celebrate 2018 with 4 Garden Honorees By MELINDA MYERS For The Edge It’s a year-long celebration of flavor and beauty as we honor and grow the beet, coreopsis, calibrachoa and tulip. The National Garden Bureau (NGB) has declared 2018 the year of these garden mainstays. This non-profit’s goal is to inspire you to grow these and more plants in your gardens at home and work. The celebration starts with the tulip, a symbol of spring. They come in a variety of flower types and colors. Select from early bloomers like Apricot beauty and end spring with a late blooming double tulip like Backpacker. Then add some pizzazz with more double blooms, ruffled petals of parrot, pointed flowers of lily types or fringed tulips. Add more low maintenance beauty to your garden with the other two National Garden Bureau “Year of Flower” designees. 2018 honors the annual calibrachoa and perennial coreopsis. Once you grow calibrachoas you’ll know why it has become a gardener’s favorite. You’ll appreciate the wide selection of colors and outstanding performance in containers. You may know these beauties by their collection or series names such as Superbells®, Million Bells®, Callie®, and Calipetite®. Fill a basket with these beauties or mix them with other flowers, vegetables and herbs. Dress up a pot of elephant ears or base of trees with calibrachoas, cascading over the edge of the pot. The only challenge you’ll have is deciding which one of these colorful plants to grow. Grow a bit of sunshine in your garden with coreopsis. No matter where you garden or your gardening style you can find a coreopsis that fits the situation. Enjoy the long blooming, small yellow daisy-like blooms and fine foliage of threadleaf coreopsis (Coreopsis verticillata). Include these versatile plants in natural, informal and even formal garden settings and containers. The towering tall coreopsis (Coreopsis tripteris) brightens National Garden Bureau the back of the flower border with its yellow daisy like flowers from mid summer Snow white colored Avalanche beet has all the sweetness but lacks the bitterness of some into fall. other beet varieties.

Try a few of the newer coreopsis introductions with larger blooms and different colors. Big Bang Cosmic Eye has bright yellow flowers with dark red center, while Coreopsis ‘Ruby Frost of the Jewel Series has ruby-red flowers with a fringe of frosty white. Dress up your dinner table with the NGB’s edible of the year, beets. Not only are they tasty and pretty, but they’re also good for you. These small vegetables are high in fiber, vitamins A and C, have more iron than most vegetables and are rich in antioxidants, calcium, potassium, phosphorus and folic acid. Use beet greens in salads and roast, cook or juice the colorful roots. Change things up with yellow and gold beets like Touchstone Gold. It’s vibrant orange-red exterior and golden center will add something special to any dish. Entice those reluctant to eat beets to the table with All-America Selections winner, Avalanche. The snow-white root has all the sweet flavor of the beet without any bitterness or earthy flavor that may have discouraged them in the past. Then visit the NGB’s website (ngb.org) for creative and tasty ideas for adding beets to your meals. Chef Jonathan Bardzik shares fun and easy recipes and a video to help you brighten your meals with beets. Join the fun and add these 2018 National Garden Bureau designees to your containers and gardens. Then share the beauty and flavor with friends and family throughout the growing season. Melinda Myers has written more than 20 gardening books, including Small Space Gardening. She hosts The Great Courses “How to Grow Anything” gardening DVD series and the nationally syndicated Melinda’s Garden Moment TV & radio segments. Myers is a columnist and contributing editor for Birds & Blooms magazine and was commissioned by NGB for her expertise to write this article. Myers’ web site is www.melindamyers.com.

People planner Bill Maher coming to The Fox

Fox Concerts is thrilled to announce that comedian and Emmy-nominated talk show host Bill Maher will bring his live stand-up tour to the Fabulous Fox Theatre on Saturday, August 25 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $125, $85, $65, $55, $45 and are available online at metrotix.com, by calling 314-534-1111, or in person at the Fabulous Fox Box Office. For more than twenty years, Bill Maher has set the boundaries of where funny, political talk can go on American television. First on “Politically Incorrect” (Comedy Central, ABC, 1993-2002), and for the last fourteen years on HBO’s “Real Time,” Maher’s combination of unflinching honesty and big laughs have garnered him 38 Emmy nominations. Maher won his first Emmy in 2014 as executive producer for the HBO series, “VICE.” In October of 2008, this same combination was on display in Maher’s uproarious and unprecedented swipe at organized religion, “Religulous,” directed by Larry Charles (“Borat”). The documentary has gone on to become the 8th Highest Grossing

Documentary ever. In addition to his television program – which has featured such visitors as President Barack Obama, Vice President Joseph Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kerry Washington, Michael Steele, Howard Dean, Michael Moore, Eva Longoria, Drew Barrymore, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Gen. Wesley Clark, Susan Sarandon, Kevin Costner, Gary Hart and Pat Buchanan.– Maher has written five bestsellers: “True Story,” “Does Anybody Have a Problem with That? Politically Incorrect’s Greatest Hits,” “When You Ride Alone, You Ride with Bin Laden,” “New Rules: Polite Musings from a Timid Observer,” and most recently, “The New New Rules: A Funny Look at How Everybody But Me Has Their Head Up Their Ass.” Maher started his career as a stand-up comedian in 1979, and still performs at least fifty dates a year in Las Vegas and in sold out theaters all across the country. Four of his ten stand-up specials for HBO – 2014’s “Bill Maher: Live from DC,” 2007’s “The Decider,” 2005’s “I’m Swiss,” as well as the hilarious, “Bill Maher … But I’m Not Wrong,” – have been nominated for Emmy awards.

Elvis knows his records

By CAROL ARNETT Of The Edge

After years of touring as an Elvis Presley tribute artist, Collinsville native Bill Cherry has opened a store in his hometown that reflects his interests. Monster Vinyl, a record and collectible shop that combines music with horror, is located in downtown Collinsville at 107 East Main St. The store has been open since April 13. Cherry will have a grand opening and ribbon cutting during the Horseradish Festival, on June 2 at 1 in the afternoon. “I’m looking forward to having a few special guests and a few monsters walking around,” he said. The store sells used records and CDs. It also has and sells a large collection of horror movie memorabilia, including posters, masks, and books. “This store is my hobbies brought to the public,” Cherry said. “There’s a lot more to the story than Elvis Presley. I like music, monsters and horror movies.” Cherry said that he had thought about opening a store for a long time. His own collection of music and monster memorabilia is extensive. “It’s neat to have collectibles and a collection, but if you don’t have anyone to share it with, that’s an empty feeling,” he said. Cherry amassed much of his collection while touring. “Every chance I got, I’d wander the city or town I was in and check out the music stores and scene. A lot of those stores influenced this place,” he said. “This is like a taste of Delmar and the Loop on this side of the river,” he said. He already has plans to expand with a recording studio next store to the record store. “We need a recording studio that caters to local talent,” he said. “When I recorded, I had to go to St. Louis.” “It’s been going really well,” Cherry said of the store. “We’ve had a lot of interest. It’s a first of its kind, mixing horror and music.” The store buys, sells and trades merchandise. “Once the store opened, people started bringing in great things. We don’t have to seek it out. We have a lot of traffic coming through. We’ve had people come by just to take a picture of the sign.” Cherry also wants to begin selling art. “I’ve

It will be homegrown, all local talent.” Cherry began impersonating Elvis at a young age to entertain his mother. “Elvis has been a part of my whole life. My mother was an Elvis fan. She would always sing along with his records,” Cherry said. “When I was older, my parents took me to see an Elvis impersonator. I was surprised at the response.” Cherry said he realized that what he had been doing for fun and to entertain his mother could become a career. His first public performance was around 1985 or ‘86, he said. “I went to a competition in Memphis, but I didn’t win,” he said. In 1995, he stopped competing and performing. He came back for a competition in 2007 that was put on by the estate of Elvis Presley.

“That got my attention because it was the estate,” he said. “I was working at American Steel as a welder and got laid off, so I really focused on Elvis Presley during the layoff.” The competition was global, with several preliminary competitions before the finals in Memphis. Cherry won the preliminary round in Tupelo and went on to win the world competition in Memphis. “I competed against 24 preliminary winners from throughout the world,” he said. “I decided not to go back to work after the layoff. Since 2009, all I’ve done is Elvis Presley.” He has always paid tribute to the Elvis of the 1970s. “You see all the rings and the capes and the belts, and that’s royalty,” he said. “He was pretty much your first glam rock star. He set the bar in a lot of things.” After winning the competition, Cherry began performing and traveling. “I’ve been to

Singapore, Italy, Spain, all over Europe, New Zealand, Australia, you name it.” He said the most unusual place he performed was probably Qatar. “Elvis is basically a universal language,” he said. “It amazes me that paying tribute can take you places that I never got to go,” Cherry said. Now that he’s opened the store, Cherry plans to continue with his Elvis Presley tribute show, but cut down on appearances. “I want to concentrate on this,” he said, noting that in some years, he traveled all but three weeks of the year. Although Cherry said he’s amazed at the continuing demand for Elvis, he looks forward to spending more time at home. “Let’s face it, Elvis died at 43. You can’t do him forever,” Cherry said. “I’m from Collinsville. I’m a native here. This is my home town, and this is a new adventure for me.”
