Julia Biggs/The Edge

Vickie Maxwell in Fitness and Fun dance and fitness center in East Alton.

Edwardsville resident understands the need for Fitness and Fun By JULIA BIGGS Of The Edge Vickie Maxwell, Edwardsville resident and mother of two teenage children, took an assessment of her life, and decided it was time to take on a new challenge. She and her husband Tom purchased Fitness & Fun, a dance and fitness center located in East Alton, in March. Maxwell elaborated on her reasoning behind purchasing the 20 year old business. “My son is going to be a senior (at Edwardsville High School) and my daughter is going to be a sophomore,” Maxwell said. “I have been a stay-at-home mom full-time volunteering, and I just thought, you know, it’s time to get back out there.” Choosing to enter into the dance and fitness industry made complete sense. Maxwell had spent the last several years taking her daughter, Katie, to Fitness and Fun for dance lessons. “With her (Katie) dancing up here, we spend a lot of time up here. She spends four nights a week up here. We just thought, hey, this might be a good idea,” Maxwell said. “I was a teacher so I love being around kids, and enjoy that." They approached the former owner about selling, and the rest, as they say, is history. The Maxwell’s officially purchased Fitness & Fun at the end of March. Since Tom has his own business to manage, Vickie is overseeing this venture and has been making minor improvements since they bought it. “We’ve done a little painting, and we used to have a tanning bed but we’ve taken that out to open up the lobby,” Maxwell said. According to Maxwell, expanding the lobby area was an important immediate goal. “We have a lot of parents that stay while their kids are taking classes so we’re trying to make the lobby bigger so there’s more room for parents to sit. It has Wi-Fi so they can do some work while they are waiting on their kids in classes,” she said. The large building features three dance rooms, a huge tumbling facility with a tumbling track and spring floor, as well as a full fitness center in the back of the building that offers cardiovascular equipment, Nautilus strength training equipment

and a free-weight room. Locker rooms are also available that include showers, lockers, saunas and restroom facilities. “So it’s a one stop place. You can bring your kids, register them for dance or tumbling and also work out,” Maxwell said. Fitness club memberships are available for the year or on a month-to-month basis. Fitness club members receive unlimited attendance to all fitness classes throughout the week except for Pilates Reformer and Indoor Cycling classes which require an additional fee. Fitness classes offered include Power Walk, Butts-n-Guts, Step Circuit, Stretch-n-Tone, Beach Body Toning, Swiss Ball, and Boot Camp. Children’s dance classes are offered in three sessions: fall, winter and summer. Children’s dance classes are offered for children ages three and up and include Creative Movement/ Tumbling, Beginner Dance, Advanced Dance, Intermediate Dance, Hip/Hop Jazz Technique, Boys Dance, Stretch and Strength, and Leaps and Turns. The summer dance programs began in June and will culminate at the end of August with a recital. However, students can enroll at anytime in the summer classes if space is available. The fall session is right around the corner and will begin with registration during the last week of August with classes beginning in September. A Christmas recital concludes the fall session. Maxwell pointed out that last year’s winter/spring session was successful with about 280 kids participating in the ending session’s recital. Children’s tumbling classes are offered for children as young as ages one to two in Toddler Bears to the advanced Cheer Tumbling which is open to children entering grades six and up. The tumbling program has open registration year round. “From the tumbling standpoint, we don’t do gymnastics, it’s strictly floor tumbling,” Maxwell emphasized. “We also have a competitive dance team – the Dazzler Dance Company.” The Dazzler Dance Company is open to girls ages 5 to 18. “They do jazz, hip hop, modern and contemporary dances,” Maxwell added. The 40-plus member Dazzler Dance Company performs at local area high school basketball games and charity functions

as well as travels mainly in the St. Louis area to competitions. This year the company will be attending a national competition in St. Charles this summer. Although dance auditions for the Dazzler Dance Company took place in June, Maxwell said that if someone missed the auditions but is interested in auditioning, they may call Fitness & Fun at 259-7587 for information. While Maxwell acknowledged that she hasn’t really made any major changes, she did say that she has brought in some new teachers who can teach some new dance styles. “One thing we’re doing this summer is a boy’s dance class. We’ve never strictly had a boy’s dance class by itself. It’s for ages third grade and up,” she said. “We have hip hop – that’s one thing that was added this summer too.” Fitness & Fun also offers children’s birthday parties where parents can bring in cake and refreshments while the party goers play on the spring floor and tumbling track. In addition, rooms may be rented for baby or bridal showers or play groups. As a new entrepreneur, Maxwell has already begun thinking about the future. “Hopefully down the road in the future we might extend and add some more rooms to the building,” she said. “Right now we’re kind of limited on the aerobic classes (offered) because the dance classes take up a lot of the room time. So that is something that we’ve looked into – extending the building to add some more dance classes and also some more fitness classes.” Taking on such a large facility with so many facets to the business has kept Maxwell quite busy, but she wasn’t complaining. “Maybe I should have eased my way into it, but you know that’s not my style. You just jump in,” she said with a grin. “But the people, the staff, up here have been wonderful - very helpful. It’s exciting.” Fitness & Fun is located at 1137 East Airline Drive in East Alton, which is near the Bethalto Airport. Call the center for more information about classes or visit them online at “http:// www.thefitnessandfun.com” www.thefitnessandfun.com. The Dazzler Dance Company also has its own Web site at www.

People People planner Lincoln Museum to host Civil War exhibit The deadliest weapon of the Civil War was one that nobody could see, killing two soldiers for every one felled by gunfire. The extraordinary casualties caused by that invisible killer, disease; the conventional weapons used to create slaughter on an u n p re c e d e n t e d s c a l e ; h o r r i f i c injuries suffered on the battlefield; and the heroic efforts of medical personnel to treat soldiers on both sides are described in detail in “To Kill and to Heal: Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War,” a new exhibit that opened May 11 at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield. This Civil War 150th anniversary exhibit runs through 2013 and f e a t u re s o r i g i n a l i m a g e s a n d artifacts from the Presidential Library and Museum’s collections supplemented by unique artifacts from the Illinois State Military Museum, The Museum of the Confederacy, Rush University Medical Center Archives, Fort Sumter National Historic Site, Nancy Ross Chapter of the DAR from Pittsfield, University Museum of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and the Old State Capitol State Historic Site. Visitors can see an original Civil War hospital flag; a field stretcher; a door used as a surgical table; original weapons; a tree trunk from the Battle of Chickamauga with an embedded artillery shell; various medical a n d s u rg i c a l t o o l s , i n c l u d i n g an amputation kit; a crude leg prosthesis; a drum carried by a wounded soldier; and original letters, journals, drawings, clinical photographs and medical records. “Northerners and Southerners shared similar weapons, military training, and medical knowledge at the beginning of the Civil War,” said Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum Executive Director Eileen Mackevich. “Both sides also shared a lack of preparedness for the human c a r n a g e t h a t m o d e r n w a r f a re would create. This new exhibit shows in very graphic and human terms the wounds and illnesses suffered by soldiers and the herculean task of providing m e d i c a l c a re t o t h e s i c k a n d wounded.” The experiences of actual soldiers are prevalent throughout the exhibit, including quotes and photographs, lending a human touch to the horror of war. Some of the images come from original med i c a l f i l e s a nd g r a p h i c a l l y depict the effects of deadly weapons and even deadlier germs on the bodies of Union and Confederate soldiers. The exhibit opens with the weapons that caused the wounds during the Civil War, including guns, ammunition, artillery and edged weapons. This section also deals with the increased effectiveness of the weapons, and how carefully trained soldiers could create havoc while using them. Union Captain John C. Van Dozer wrote in 1863 about a Confederate sharpshooter his unit encountered: “One mile up the river from Mason’s house, one fellow, using a Mississippi rifle, killed everything he shot at, man, horse, or mule; he killed 3 men and wounded 2, and killed about a dozen mules.”

Wounds caused by the various weapons and treatment for those injuries are described in a section that includes gun shot wounds, amputations, artificial limbs and anesthesia. Several soldier stories illustrate this section, including this quote from Union soldier David R. Gregg in an 1864 letter to his wife, Sarah Gregg: “it is the awfulest Sight you Ever Saw our Men are Wounded in Evry part of them that I Can describe from the Crown to the Sole of the foot.” Diseases, infections and treatments are examined in a section that deals with colds, bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, measles, smallpox (which afflicted Abraham Lincoln around the time of the Gettysburg Address), sexually transmitted diseases, malaria, scurvy, typhoid (which killed the Lincolns’ son Willie in the White House), diarrhea, and dysentery. Chronic diarrhea and dysentery were the leading causes of death by disease during the Civil War. Intestinal diseases so concerned commanders on both sides that they issued orders such as these from U.S. Secretary of the Navy Gideon Welles in 1862: “The water of the James River…is turbid and objectionable for drinking. It is the only sewer for an army of 90,000 or 100,000 men encamped upon its banks, as well as the great number of naval and other vessels scattered over its surface. The addition of the drainage of this vast accumulation of men and cattle to the vegetable matter abounding in the river would obviously render the use of its water as a drink productive o f d i a r rh e a a n d o t h e r b o w e l disorders. Fleet Surgeon Wood recommends that the use of its water as a drink be interdicted.” The medical personnel who provided treatment to the sick a n d w o u n ded are profiled in the exhibit. There were just 113 military doctors in the prewar Union army; by the end of the Civil War, the Union had more than 12,000 and the Confederacy 3,200. Most nurses were male, but a female nurse, famed author L o u i s a M a y A l c o t t , w ro t e i n her Hospital Sketches about recovering soldiers who because of nursing shortages were pressed into duty to care for their comrades: “I should like to enter my protest against employing convalescents as attendants, instead of strong, properly trained, and cheerful men...here it was a

source of constant trouble and confusion, these feeble, ignorant men trying to sweep, scrub, lift, and wait upon their sicker comrades. One, with a diseased heart, was expected to run up and down stairs, carry heavy trays, and move helpless men; he tried it, and grew rapidly worse than when he first came; and, when he was ordered out to march away to the convalescent hospital, fell, in a sort of fit, before he turned the corner, and was brought back to die.” Well-known figures such

This fast and heavy-hitting weekend takes place October 20-21, 2012 and will feature the MRDA's top eight teams in the end-of-season rankings. Competition for those spots will be especially tough as the MRDA continues in its mission to encourage the growth and development of men's roller derby by nearly doubling in the past year to 20 teams. The Gatekeepers will work closely with the MRDA to build on the success of last year's inaugural championship. The Gatekeepers, founded in November 2009, have grown to become one of the most successful teams in men's roller derby, skill-wise and in sheer number of skaters. They bring a wealth of tournament knowledge by virtue of participating in last year's championship as well as competing in Spring Roll men's tournament. The 2012 MRDA Championship will be held at theMidwest Sport Hockey Complex. With a new Sport Court surface installed this past November, Midwest Sport is the premier inline roller hockey facility in the Midwest making it the ideal spot for high-caliber roller derby.

Travel Travel briefs Virginia historic area opens new quilt exhibit

traveling mini-exhibit on the War of 1812 is coming to Detroit next weekend. Called “War of 1812: A Nation Forged by War,” the display commemorates the conflict’s 200-year anniversary. It will be featured at nearly 200 locations across the U.S. and Canada. The display opens Saturday at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle. “War of 1812: A Nation Forged by War” highlights the roles the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Revenue Cutter Service played in getting Great Britain to the negotiating table and tells the stories of U.S. Navy crews in battles on the oceans and Great Lakes.

WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) — Dozens of quilts produced around the middle of the 19th century are going on display at Colonial Williamsburg. Officials say the exhibit at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum features works influenced by quiltmaking in Baltimore, which was the nation’s third largest city of the time. It runs through April 2014. The co-curator of the exhibition says “Quilts in the Baltimore Manner” reflects the strong textile industry and innovative quiltmaking styles of America’s largest seaport of the period 1845 to 1855. Most of the quilts are made in a style known as album quilts made of blocks decorated with intricate designs. Album quilts were usually a cooperative effort composed of individual signed and inscribed blocks. They were often intended for an honored recipient within a community.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Bridgeport’s Discovery Museum is building what is being billed as the state’s first aerial adventure park. The “Adventure Park at The Discovery Museum” will be a fiveacres facility in Veterans Memorial Park, behind the Discovery Museum & Planetarium. It is based on similar parks in Europe and will include eight “aerial trails,” which will consist of about 110 platforms in trees connected by cables, wood and rope bridges and zip lines. Trails will range in difficulty from beginner to expert. It is scheduled to open in July.

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Tourists traveling to Jamaica this year can expect to pay a bit more for their trip. The government has announced several tax increases in the tourism sector to generate revenue and help the Caribbean island emerge from an economic crisis. Finance Minister Peter Phillips says all arriving tourists will be required to pay a $20 entrance fee starting in August. He says those staying in hotels will pay as much as $4 a night extra under a new accommodation tax that goes into effect in September. A government statement issued Friday says the new hotel tax is significantly lower than the one previously announced, under which some customers would have paid an additional $12 a night.

SUMMER SAVINGS EVENT Drive a little to SAVE a lot!

Religion briefs German court: Circumcision on Jewish boys is assault BERLIN (AP) — A German court has ruled that circumcising Jewish boys amounts to bodily harm even if parents consent to the procedure. The state court in Cologne said the child’s right to physical integrity trumps freedom of religion and parents’ rights, German news agency dapd reported Tuesday. The case involved a doctor accused of carrying out a circumcision on a 4-year-old that led to medical complications. The doctor was acquitted, however, and prosecutors said they won’t appeal. The president of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, Dieter G r a u m a n n , c a l l e d t h e ru l i n g “unprecedented and insensitive.” He urged parliament to clarify the legal situation “to protect religious freedom against attacks.” Graumann said the circumcision of newborn Jews has been practiced for thousands of years and “every country in the world respects this religious right.”

N.J. Sen. Lautenberg introduces bill to help Indonesian immigrants reopen U.S. asylum bids NEWARK, New Jersey (AP) — A group of Indonesian Christians facing deportation from the United States are hopeful that federal legislation introduced Monday will allow them the chance to reopen their bids for U.S. asylum. The bill from U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey aims to help a group of Indonesian immigrants who say they fled religious persecution by antiChristian extremists in the majority Muslim nation. The U.S. government allowed hundreds of Indonesian Christians to come to America on tourist visas — most of them between 1996 and 2003 — at a time when more than 1,000 Christian churches were destroyed in the aftermath of the fall of the regime of longtime dictator Suharto. However, after the Sept. 11 attacks in New York and Washington, immigrant men between the ages of 16 and 65 who had entered the U.S. on temporary visas from predominantly Muslim countries were required to register with the U.S. government or be classified as terrorist fugitives. Many who registered did not expect to face deportation back to Indonesia, but found themselves in legal limbo as they had surpassed the time limit for applying for U.S. asylum on religious persecution grounds. Lautenberg’s bill, and companion House legislation co-sponsored by Democratic U.S. Reps. Carolyn Maloney of New York and Frank Pallone Jr. of New Jersey, would not grant them amnesty, but allow them to re-apply for asylum. The New Jersey Assembly unanimously passed a resolution last week endorsing federal legislation to help Indonesians. Meanwhile, nine Indonesians in New Jersey who have been issued recent deportation orders have taken refuge in The Reformed Church of Highland Park, where the Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale is has granted them

sanctuary. Harold Ort, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs E n f o rc e m e n t i n N e w J e r s e y, said immigration officials have considered the merits of each case individually, and have extended a stay of removal in 25 of the New Jersey cases since the beginning of the year. ICE officials said that as a matter of policy the agency does not usually conduct enforcement actions at sensitive locations, such as churches.

Singapore mega-church founder charged with fraud SINGAPORE (AP) — The founder of one of Singapore’s largest evangelical churches was charged Wednesday with several counts accusing him of funneling millions of dollars to his wife’s singing career. City Harvest Church founder Kong Hee, 47, was charged with three counts of conspiracy to commit criminal breach of trust in connection with a scheme to syphon at least 23 million Singapore dollars (US$18 million) of church funds from 2007 to 2010 to finance the singing career of his wife, Ho Yeow Sun. Known professionally as Sun Ho, the 40-year-old has put out several Mandarin and English pop albums and songs, including a 2007 collaboration with pop star Wyclef Jean called “China Wine.” She was not charged Wednesday. Kong did not enter a plea and was freed on SG$500,000 (US$390,000) bail after his passport was seized. He would face up to 20 years in prison or a fine for each charge if found guilty.

He did not comment on the accusations in court but earlier had tweeted that he trusted Jesus and referred to Tuesday, when he was arrested, as a “tough day.” Prosecutors also charged four other church leaders with breach of trust and conspiracy to commit falsification of accounts. The charges follow a two-year police investigation sparked by local media reports that depicted Ho’s lavish lifestyle, including a $20,000-a-month Los Angeles mansion. A church member had alleged in 2003 that City Harvest funds were paying for Ho’s singing career, but he later retracted the statement and publically apologized to Kong and Ho.

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

“Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted”

Ben Stiller’s Alex the lion provides a review so we don’t have to. Halfway into the third animated tale about New York City zoo animals on their overseas adventures, Alex tells some new circus friends that their act was not too entertaining for families “because you were just going through the motions out there.” So, too, for this latest sequel, which goes through a lot of motions — explosions of action and image so riotously paced that they become narcotic and numbing. With Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath, creators of the first two “Madagascar” flicks, joined by a third director in Conrad Vernon (”Shrek 2”), the filmmakers just cannot stop stuffing things, to the point of distraction, into “Europe’s Most Wanted.” The result: A cute story about zoo animals running off to join the circus becomes overwhelmed by a blur of color and animated acrobatics. The pictures certainly are pretty, but the filmmakers apparently are unwilling to risk the slightest lapse of audience attention, so they put the movie on fast-forward and let centripetal force hurtle viewers along from start to finish. RATED: PG for some mild action and rude humor. RUNNING TIME: 92 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“Safety Not Guaranteed”

In his feature directing debut, Colin Trevorrow manages the tricky feat of moving subtly and seamlessly among several different genres within a relatively short period of time. With a low-budget intimacy, his film begins life as an oddball road-trip comedy, then turns unexpectedly romantic before becoming a genuinely paranoid, sci-fi thriller. It also provides a welcome showcase for Aubrey Plaza in a rare leading role as Darius, a sullen intern at a Seattle magazine who becomes the reluctant participant in a pseudo-journalistic investigation. The clever premise from screenwriter Derek Connolly finds Darius and two of her co-workers — cynical reporter Jeff (Jake Johnson) and fellow intern Arnau (Karan Soni) — traveling to find the person who placed an intriguing classified ad. “Wanted: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke,” it reads in part. “Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed.” They track down Kenneth (Mark Duplass), a loner grocery store clerk, in a small, coastal Washington town, then attempt to infiltrate his life to get to the bottom of this bizarre story. RATED: R for language including some sexual references. RUNNING TIME: 85 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“Rock of Ages”

Just when you thought you’d never hear Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar on Me” again outside of a strip club comes this big, splashy homage to the decadence of 1980s rock ‘n’ roll. Specifically, we’re talking about 1987 on the Sunset Strip, the birthplace of bands like Guns N’ Roses and Poison, and all the big-haired, eyelinered debauchery that defined that scene. Your enjoyment of this musical, based on the Tony-nominated Broadway show, will depend greatly on your enjoyment of this music — because director Adam Shankman crams in a lot of it. Sure, the characters are all broad types, from fresh-faced newcomers with dreams of stardom to grizzled, cynical veterans who’ve seen it all. And sure, their antics are glossed-up and watered-down compared with reality to ensure a PG-13 accessibility. But the movie has enough energy to keep you suitably entertained, as well as a knowing, cheeky streak that prevents it from turning too reverent and self-serious.

from Oklahoma who hopes to make it as a singer in Los Angeles. Instead, she ends up working as a waitress at the venerable (and fictional) Bourbon Room, where she quickly falls for aspiring rocker Drew (Diego Boneta). But the club has lost some of its cache, to the distress of its owner (Alec Baldwin in long hair and a leather vest) and his right-hand man (Russell Brand, being Russell Brand), so they’re hoping a performance from rock god Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise, easily the best part of the film) will keep the place alive. RATED:: PG-13 for sexual content, suggestive dancing, some heavy drinking and language. RUNNING TIME: 123 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

"The Amazing Spider-Man"

It's impossible to avoid the comparisons, so we may as well just get them out of the way early so we can move on. This reboot — Prequel? New chapter? It's hard to decide what to call it — is pretty much different in every way from the staggeringly successful Marvel Comics-inspired trilogy that preceded it. The basics are the same: A high school kid gets bitten by a scientifically modified spider, discovers he has newfound super powers, decides to use them as a vigilante crime fighter and takes to the streets of New York in an unforgivingly tight red-and-blue suit. But in terms of tone, characters, performances and even visual effects, "The Amazing Spider-Man" feels like its own separate entity. It may not be as transporting an experience as those earlier films, especially the first two, but it finds a distinct voice. Much of that has to do with the central performance from Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker. In the hands of Tobey Maguire, who originated the role in "Spider-Man" a decade ago, Peter was nerdy, scrawny, insecure — that's how his everyman relatability manifested itself. Garfield plays Peter as more of a misunderstood outsider, a rebel with a chip on his shoulder. And that slightly arrogant attitude gives the whole movie a restless, reckless energy and a welcome sense of danger. At the helm, Marc Webb is a very different sort of director. He may not have sounded like the most obvious choice for a hugely anticipated blockbuster based on his only previous feature, the romantic comedy charmer "(500) Days of Summer." His big set pieces may lack some of the imagination that director Sam Raimi brought, but they'll do. More importantly, though, he conveys an emotional truth, a pervasive sense of humanity, which may be an even tougher feat in this kind of fantastical scenario. Emma Stone is bright as ever as Peter's love interest, Gwen Stacy, with Rhys Ifans nicely underplaying his role as Spider-Man's nemesis. RATED: PG-13 for sequences of action and violence. RUNNING TIME: 138 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

"Magic Mike"

Steven Soderbergh makes movies about sexy subjects, then strips away the sexiness about them. He is fascinated by process, often to a clinical extent. In recent years this has been true of "The Girlfriend Experience" (starring real-life porn star Sasha Grey as a high-priced Manhattan call girl), "Contagion" (about a viral outbreak that claims lives worldwide) and "Haywire" (featuring mixed-martial artist Gina Carano as a special-ops agent seeking revenge for a betrayal). Even the glitzy, star-studded "Ocean's 11," one of Soderbergh's most pleasingly escapist films, takes its time laying out every detail of its ambitious Las Vegas casino heist. Now he's directed "Magic Mike," about the cheesy world of male stripping in the cheesy setting of Tampa, Fla. Yes, the dance numbers themselves exude masculine, muscular heat — how could they not with guys like Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello strutting on stage in barely-there costumes? — but Soderbergh and writer Reid Carolin take us behind the scenes and linger over the mundane minutiae of the performers' daily lives. They go thong shopping.

They rehearse their routines. They lift weights backstage. And they count their dollar bills when their work is done. Even the after-hours hook-ups with liquored-up ladies from the audience seem like one more obligatory step, like brushing your teeth before going to bed. It all seems glamorous and thrilling at first, though, for Pettyfer's character, Adam, who becomes known as The Kid. A neophyte in this neon-colored world, he serves as our guide once the more established Mike (Tatum) recruits him to be a dancer at the Club Xquisite male revue. RATED R for pervasive sexual content, brief graphic nudity, language and some drug use. RUNNING TIME: 110 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

"People Like Us"

It's that increasingly rare kind of film: an adult drama. The filmmakers seem so nervous about this prospect that they fill the movie with action-film editing and a camera that moves so restlessly through domestic life that you'd think it lost its keys. It comes from the screenwriting duo of Alex Kurtzman (who makes his directorial debut) and Roberto Orci, who wrote the 2009 "Star Trek" reboot, among other blockbusters. Chris Pine stars as Sam, a glib New Yorker reluctantly summoned home to Los Angeles for his father's funeral, where he discovers that his rock producer dad secretly fathered a daughter (Elizabeth Banks). She's a recovering alcoholic working as a bartender, trying desperately to get by as a single mom to a sarcastic, troublemaking 11-year-old (Michael Hall D'Addario). Sam befriends them without revealing their shared roots. It's a soapy set-up of a familiar, heart-rending melodrama. But it owes much of its charm to the excellent Banks, who enters the film like a powerhouse, striding in heels and a black mini-skirt to the principal's office to pick up her son, while chastising a pair of ogling students: "I know your mothers," she says. RATED PG-13 for language, some drug use and brief sexuality. RUNNING TIME: 114 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

"Ted"

A teddy bear who smokes pot, parties with hookers, beds pop stars and spews profanity in a New England accent as thick as chowdah? Such a creature could only come from the blissfully twisted mind of "Family Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane, confidently making his feature directing debut. If you love his show, you'll probably love this: In a lot of ways, "Ted" feels like a live-action, big-screen version of "Family Guy" with its popculture references and inappropriate racial humor, flashbacks and non sequiturs. (MacFarlane co-wrote the script with two of his longtime collaborators on the series, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild.) He's even included the same sort of full orchestral arrangements of jaunty transitional music between scenes. And Ted, whom MacFarlane himself voices, happens to sound exactly like Peter Griffin (which would have been obvious even without a throw-away joke spelling it out for us). Still, you chuck enough of this stuff at a wall and some of it will stick. Most of it does, actually, for most of the time, with only a few of the one-liners showing signs of strain. "Ted" also happens to be sweeter than you might expect, despite the predictability of its formula. Mark Wahlberg stars as John, whose wish upon a star as a lonely kid in the '80s turned his Christmas-morning teddy bear into a walking, talking friend for life. Decades later, John and Ted are still best buddies living in Boston; despite the adolescent attachment, John has managed to carve out a healthy, four-year relationship with the beautiful and exceedingly patient Lori (Mila Kunis, who voices awkward teenage daughter Meg on "Family Guy"). But by this point, something's gotta give. RATED R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug use. RUNNING TIME: 105 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

This film image released by Warner Bros. shows Channing Tatum, left, and Matthew McConaughey in a scene from "Magic Mike."

"Magic Mike" brings right mix to the screen By CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press Steven Soderbergh makes movies about sexy subjects, then strips away the sexiness about them. He is fascinated by process, often to a clinical extent. In recent years this has been true of “The Girlfriend Experience” (starring real-life porn star Sasha Grey as a high-priced Manhattan call girl), “Contagion” (about a viral outbreak that claims lives worldwide) and “Haywire” (featuring mixed-martial artist Gina Carano as a special-ops agent seeking revenge for a betrayal). Even the glitzy, star-studded “Ocean’s 11,” one of Soderbergh’s most pleasingly escapist films, takes its time laying out every

detail of its ambitious Las Vegas casino heist. Now he’s directed “Magic Mike,” about the cheesy world of male stripping at a cheesy club in Tampa, Fla. Yes, the dance numbers themselves exude masculine, muscular heat — how could they not with guys like Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, Alex Pettyfer and Joe Manganiello strutting on stage in barely-there costumes? But Soderbergh and writer Reid Carolin take us behind the scenes and linger over the minutiae of these performers’ daily lives. They go thong shopping. They rehearse their routines. They lift weights backstage. And they count their dollar bills when “It’s Raining Men” has stopped blaring from the sound system and their work is done. Even the after-

hours hook-ups with liquored-up ladies from the audience feel like one more obligatory step, like brushing your teeth before going to bed. It all seems glamorous and thrilling at first for Pettyfer’s character, Adam, who becomes known as The Kid. A 19-year-old neophyte in this neon-colored world, he serves as our wideeyed guide once the more established Mike (Tatum) recruits him to be a dancer at the Club Xquisite male revue. Comparisons to “Boogie Nights,” both for the structure and the sexual subject matter, are inevitable. But Soderbergh, who also shot and edited the film under his usual pseudonyms, intentionally avoids the kind of high style and histrionics that marked Paul Thomas Anderson’s lurid look at the porn industry in the ‘70s.

A more apt point of comparison would be the original “Sex & the City” movie; it’ll have a similar appeal for straight women and gay men in equal measure. This is a movie that’s tailormade for groups of friends to get together and giggle and ogle at the spectacle of it all. And it is a lot of fun — there’s no shame, we’re all friends here — but it’s also more substantial than you might expect, and more mundane. Tatum, who’s also a producer on the film, understands the allure of this lifestyle: He lived it when he was The Kid’s age, briefly working as a male stripper before breaking into acting, and “Magic Mike” is kinda-sorta inspired by that time. Anyone who’s seen “Step Up,” the 2006 movie that put him on the map, knows what a gifted dancer he is.

It's time for Spidey to go into hibernation By ROBERT GRUBAUGH For The Edge Am I weary of Spider-man movies? Yes. After 40 years of failed attempts to get one of the coolest superheroes onto the big screen, we’ve now been privy to four outings in 10 years. Overkill City. Tobey Maguire’s foray into the red and blue spandex was a big hit, up to and including the horrendous final installment in 2007. His upside-down masked kiss with Kirsten Dunst’s Mary Jane Watson will be remembered for a long time. Now, for some stupid reason we’re seeing a reboot of the franchise – again – with different actors and an updated timeline. I can’t be the only one longing for a breather. The Amazing Spider-man was much less than advertised. This year ’s Spidey is played by

British actor Andrew Garfield who doesn’t display anything of an accent. I just bring up the British thing because it seems that we’re now even outsourcing our comic heroes. Garfield is a great performer. He was superb in the Facebook movie, "The Social Network", a few years ago, stealing scenes from the stars, including Justin Timberlake, which is no easy feat. In fact, Garfield is the perfect Peter Parker, Spider-man’s nerdy alter-ego. He’s skinny, shy, and just awkward enough to make his role convincing. When he’s turned into the wall-climbing hero by the bite of an enhanced spider, though, I’m less sure. He doesn’t fill the suit as well as Maguire did, nor does he do it the justice of other current franchise stars like Hugh Jackman (X-Men’s Wolverine) and Chris Hemsworth (The Avengers’

Thor). I do like the touch of adding artificial web-spinners of Parker ’s own tinkering. That was a flaw that angered fans of the original source material back in ’02. Garfield’s Parker is orphaned and raised by his Uncle Ben (Martin Sheen, playing too old) and Aunt May (Sally Field, playing way too old). The plot of this installment does serve to broaden the Spider-man universe and introduce some great new characters like Dr. Curt Connors (Rhys Ifans), the biochemist partner of Peter’s long-deceased father and the movie’s main villain, The Lizard. By happenstance, Peter is able to help Dr. Connors finish some of the groundbreaking worker that the elder Parker had started so many years before. The work is designed to help the noble, but troubled, doctor repair his damaged right arm, the lower

two-thirds of which are missing. The engineering of replacement genetic material goes horribly wrong and Connors becomes the reptilian beastie that begins to devour Manhattan one citizen at a time. Spider-man tries hard to stop him. There is nothing surprising here with the story or with the movie’s eye-popping 3D special effects. What has greatly improved with this version of the storyline is the introduction of the luminous Emma Stone as Peter ’s girlfriend, Gwen Stacy. She’s sweeter, more fashionable, and hyper-conscious of herself – more so than that annoying Mary Jane, even if she is just as adept at getting into trouble. I don’t blame creator Stan Lee (who cameos) for the “woman in peril” nature of his works. Such has long been a standard plot device

July 12, 2012

for male protagonists. Even since the ‘60s we haven’t progressed very well in this area. Shouldn’t Title IX ( have had some clause in there about this? Denis Leary portrays Gwen’s father, a stern police captain bent on bringing down both The Lizard and The Spider-man who he views as a cold-blooded murderer and a vigilante, respectively. There is no separating which is worse in his mind. The boys in blue are the ultimate in civic protection as old George Stacy sees it. The boy in blue (and red, with a webbed pattern) is in need of a break. Let’s revisit this character many years from now with a fresh approach. ••• "The Amazing Spider-man" runs 150 minutes and is rated PG-13 for sequences of action and violence. I give this film one and a half stars out of four.

The Arts

Dance St. Louis 2012-13 season announced For The Edge Dance St. Louis is widely recognized as the leading dance presenter by St. Louis, the Midwest and the professional dance community. Dance St. Louis has been bringing the great dance of the world to St. Louis audiences since 1966, when a small group of dance enthusiasts, headed by Washington University professor of dance Annelise Mertz, began meeting in each other's living rooms to figure out how to enable St. Louisans to enjoy more modern dance performances. From these informal gatherings and a minimal operating budget, Dance St. Louis has become one of the cultural treasures of St. Louis. Dance St. Louis is committed to the enrichment of the cultural landscape and artistic reputation of St. Louis by bringing audiences the full spectrum of dance, from classical ballet, contemporary ballet, and modern dance to ethnic, ballroom, tap, jazz, hip-hop, and cutting-edge artists of every sort. Major companies are presented at the Fox Theatre, the Blanche M. Touhill Performing Arts Center and in collaboration with Washington University's Edison Theatre OVATIONS! series. Over the years, Dance St. Louis has raised the curtain on stars such as the Kirov Ballet, STOMP, American Ballet Theatre, Tango X 2, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Joffrey Ballet, Riverdance, Martha Graham Dance Company, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Tap Dogs, Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Stuttgart Ballet, Pilobolus, Bill T. Jones, Sydney Dance Company, David Dorfman Dance Company, and Compañía Nacional de Danza. Dance St. Louis also conducts a broad range of education programs for the St. Louis community. Free Speaking of Dance talks hosted by Artistic & Executive Director Michael Uthoff precedes all performances, with artistic directors, ballet masters, dancers and choreographers talking informally with audience members about their work. Many visiting dance companies conduct master classes for area dancers. Each year, the Education Outreach Program introduces thousands of schoolchildren to the magic of dance through in-school workshops and mainstage performances.

R e c e n t l y, D a n c e S t . L o u i s announced its 47th season, which, according to Michael Uthoff, Artistic and Executive Director for Dance St. Louis, will be "a season to showcase the magnitude and importance of Dance St. Louis not only in our area but around the country and the world. A season befitting major capitals in the world." The season kicks off with a firstever for Dance St. Louis - New Dance Horizons - where Dance St. Louis has commissioned four nationally renowned choreographers to create four world premieres that will be performed by four local dance companies. The season then accelerates to the internationallyrecognized powerhouses of the dance world, including Pilobolus, New York City Ballet MOVES and STOMP. Equally anticipated this season is Moulin Rouge - The Ballet and the epic masterpiece Carmina Burana, which brings together Nashville Ballet, UMSL's University Orchestra and University Singers, Bach Society of Saint Louis and St. Louis Children's Choirs. 120 singers, 55 musicians and 50 dancers will all perform live on stage at the same time to Carl Orff's thunderous and dramatic composition. It's a production of enormous proportions. The season will close with the popular 6th Annual Emerson SPRING TO DANCE FESTIVAL over Memorial Day weekend and Anything Goes in June. PNC Arts Alive New Dance Horizons October 5 & 6, 2012 Touhill Performing Arts Center Dance St. Louis commissions a quartet of renowned choreographers from around the nation to collaborate with St. Louis companies to create clever and moving world premieres. Saint Louis Ballet, aTrek Dance Collective, MADCO, and Common Thread Contemporary Dance Company team up with the witty and subversive Victoria Marks, musical and expressive Jessica Lang, ironic post-modernist Pamela Tanowitz, and thought-provoking ballet artist Gina Patterson. The production will then tour to five neighboring presenters in Missouri and Illinois. This bold new step for Dance St. Louis will give you even more new dance to enjoy. Pilobolus November 9 & 10, 2012 Touhill Performing Arts Center

Pilobolus started thinking outside the box before the phrase was invented, and they keep warping that box into shapes never before imagined. In the past few years, they’ve stretched even further. T h e y ’ re d o i n g m i n d - b e n d i n g new collaborations with people like puppeteer Basil Twist, the GRAMMY-winning rock band OK Go, lead writer Steven Banks of SpongeBob SquarePants, and even the robotics lab at MIT. "The magic of these incredible artists that have imagined dance like no one else provides us a unique vision of the marvels of the human body and spirit," said Uthoff in an email. A Pilobolus show is always an adventure, as no two works look, sound or feel alike. STOMP January 11-13, 2013 Fox Theatre STOMP is explosive, provocative, sophisticated, sexy, utterly unique and appeals to audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered an armful of awards and rave reviews, and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eightmember troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments – matchboxes, wooden poles.  Moulin Rouge – The Ballet by Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet January 25 & 26, 2013 Touhill Performing Arts Center An original new story told entirely through dance brings the oldest continuously running ballet company in North America to St. Louis for the first time. Set to classical music by Debussy, Offenbach and more, Moulin Rouge – The Ballet was created in 2009 for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet’s 70th anniversary by its own Jorden Morris and has been a soldout sensation on tour in Canada and the U.S. In a city where pomp runs hand in hand with poverty, where the heady elixir of freedom breeds reckless passion, struggling artist Matthew and cancan dancer Nathalie tempt fate as they seek love and destiny at the infamous cabaret.  Carmina Burana by Nashville Ballet February 21-24, 2013 Touhill Performing Arts Center Thunderous. Dramatic. Exhilarating. Sacred.  Carmina Burana, considered one of the most popular and epic pieces of music ever written, evolves to magnificent proportions as Nashville Ballet, UMSL’s University Orchestra and University Singers, Bach Society of Saint Louis and St. Louis Children’s Choirs join forces in a tapestry of live music and riveting dance that features hundreds of performers on stage at the same time. The opening act is Bach Cantata No. 10, performed by UMSL’s University Orchestra and University Singers and Bach Society of Saint Louis with choreography by Dance St. Louis’ own Michael Uthoff and performed by St. Louis-based dance company MADCO. New York City Ballet MOVES March 9 & 10, 2013 Fox Theatre One of the most exalted dance companies in the world is sending dancers to St. Louis for the first time since 1994. "What an incredible honor to be able to showcase to St. Louis "the"

For The Edge

Pictured above is a view of a previous art fair at Queeny Park. Below is an example of the type of work available.

Art fair returns to Queeny Park For The Edge The Greater St. Louis Art Association presents the Fall Art Fair at Queeny Park, Aug. 31 through Sept. 2 at the indoor, air-conditioned Greensfelder Recreation Center in Queeny Park, 550 Weidman Rd, Ballwin, Mo. The fall and spring art fairs at Queeny Park are two of the most reputable, longest-running juried art fairs in the bi-state region and present a rare opportunity for the public to see and purchase original works of fine art and fine craft directly from the artists who create them. “We are pleased with the reputation we’ve built over the last 35 years, and every year, The Art Fair at Queeny Park gets even better,” said co-chair Vic Barr in a press release. “People love the unique blend of different styles and mediums, and the quality of the work is simply unmatched.” In addition to the fine art and fine crafts, the Art Fair at Queeny Park presents an appealing and fun atmosphere for everyone with live music, wine tastings, children’s activities and art raffles, all in the comfortable setting of the Greensfelder Recreation Complex. So there is never a worry about inclement weather.

The show will

Sheldon hosts diverse exhibits There's more to this Grand Center location than music For The Edge In the heart of St. Louis' Grand Center arts district, The Sheldon offers the St. Louis area a wealth of cultural resources in the tradition of its visionary founders. Designed by the noted 1904 World's Fair architect Louis C. Spiering, The Sheldon was built in 1912 as the home of the Ethical Society of St. Louis. Musicians and public speakers throughout the years have enjoyed the perfect acoustics of the 712-seat Concert Hall, earning The Sheldon its reputation as "The Carnegie Hall of St. Louis." Well-known singers and ensembles have performed at The Sheldon, and speakers such as Albert Einstein, Dwight Eisenhower and Ernest Hemingway have spoken from its stage. When the Ethical Society relocated to St. Louis County in 1964, The Sheldon became a primarily music venue. Then, in 1974, a former singer with the Duke Ellington Orchestra purchased the facility, transforming The Sheldon into a church and the site for many glorious jazz and gospel concerts. A California attorney with a love for chamber music purchased the building in 1984 at the urging of the Paganini String Quartet. He began operating The Sheldon in 1986 as a venue for concerts and community events. Determined to preserve and establish The Sheldon as one of St. Louis' greatest cultural resources, the Sheldon Arts Foundation was formed in 1988. The Foundation purchased the building in 1991, and today The Sheldon Arts Foundation is governed by a 45-member Board of Directors. A non-profit organization, The Sheldon relies on public support to carry out its mission: to preserve and operate the historic Sheldon Concert Hall and the Sheldon Art Galleries as an independent cultural institution, to produce and present a diverse array of quality concerts, art exhibits and educational programs of local and national importance, and to provide facilities and services for a wide variety of community organizations. The Sheldon Concert Hall is the site of over 300 events each year, including great jazz, folk and classical music, featuring the world's finest musicians. Artists such as Dave Brubeck, Cleo Laine, José Carreras, Herbie Hancock, Doc Watson, Joan Baez, Willie Nelson, Julian Bream, Itzhak Perlman and Jessye Norman have recently performed at The Sheldon. In addition, The Sheldon presents Family Concerts, educational programs for schools and Coffee Concerts. The "Notes From Home" series, featuring St. Louis musicians, is presented weekday evenings. The Sheldon Ballroom, Spiering Room and Art Galleries host workshops and master classes, post-concert receptions, fundraising events, corporate presentations and community meetings. In 1998, The Sheldon expanded its artistic focus to include six new art galleries in a $5 million dollar expansion project. Improvements included complete wheelchair accessibility, new restrooms, two new lobbies, a sculpture garden, added parking and in 1999, the 500-seat Louis Spiering Room. The Sheldon Art Galleries encompass 7,000 square feet and feature exhibits on photography, architecture, St. Louis artists and collection, jazz history, emerging artists and children's art. Over 75,000 visitors explore the galleries each year. Current exhibits in the art galleries are: • The Bellweather Gallery of St. Louis

are in a unique position to be inspired by, and to inspire, the work of their parents. This exhibition features the work of over 16 young artists from the greater St. Louis area whose parents are actively engaged in the arts community. • The Nancy Spiritas Kranzberg Gallery Anomalous Perspectives: The 2011 Critical Mass Creative Stimulus Award Exhibition Featuring Sarrita Hunn, Elysia Mann and B.J.

Dancing in the Streets Grand Center to host annual extravaganza For The Edge Grand Center is the arts and entertainment district located in Midtown St. Louis. With dozens of arts organizations, museums, galleries, theaters and concert halls that demonstrate the depth and diversity of the city’s cultural life within a four block area, Grand Center hosts more than 1,500 cultural events annually. From the traditional to the experimental, from around the corner and around the world, Grand Center brings the finest in art, dance, music and theater to the people of St. Louis and the Midwest region. The boundaries of the district run along Grand from Lindell to Delmar and from Vandeventer to the west and Josephine Baker to the east. The heart of the district is located at Grand and Washington, next to the Fabulous Fox Theatre. It includes such noted organizations as the Contemporary Art Museum, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, The Sheldon Concert Hall and the Sheldon Art Galleries, along with many others. Grand Center’s artistic renaissance began with the restoration of Powell Hall, home to the St. Louis Symphony, in 1968 and the Fabulous Fox Theatre in 1982. According to the website, Grand Center, Inc. (GCI), the organization whose role is to serve as the coordinator, advocate, and catalyst for the Grand Center District, was founded in 1981. GCI's mission is to support the arts, preserve a legacy and transform a neighborhood into a vibrant community. By reinvigorating the Grand Center District as the arts and entertainment heart and soul of St. Louis, GCI is helping to create a vibrant and attractive place to live, work, shop, play and learn. In addition, GCI has been a catalyst for the development of real estate, the preservation of architecture and physical improvements in the district. Today, Grand Center is a

16

destination for more than 1.5 million people who visit each year. From Broadway musicals to jazz clubs, contemporary art to cabaret shows, a symphony to a circus, films to festivals, and much more, this premier arts district has something for everyone. An eclectic choice of restaurants, a variety of housing and education options further enhances the vitality of this cosmopolitan neighborhood. One notable event hosted by GCI is the Dancing in the Street Festival. This fall, in its sixth year, the Festival, with presenting sponsor Wells Fargo Advisors, returns to the streets of Grand Center as one of the region’s largest, most diverse displays of the art, beauty and athleticism of dance. This free, outdoor festival features an array of talent and styles on three outdoor stages from 1 to 8 p.m. Sept. 29 on Grand Boulevard, between Lindell and Delmar, centered at Grand and Washington boulevards. The juried street festival features nearly 1,000 dancers from 80 local and regional dance companies. Audience members stroll from stage to stage to see non-stop performances that include everything from crowd-pleasing classics like tap, ballet, modern and jazz; cultural favorites like salsa, belly, clog and Bollywood; to more cutting-edge styles of hip-hop, breakdancing and many more. Scheduled performances are from 1 to 6:30 p.m., with live music and open dance from 6:30 to 8 p.m. For the first time, two 45-minute showcases take place on stage with a break-dancing showcase at 2:15 p.m. and a step team showcase at 4:15 p.m. Nick Gates, founder and owner of Hip Hop Fanatics and former finalist on So You Think You Can Dance, is curating the breakdance showcase. And two-time national step champions Gentlemen of Vision (GOV) is curating the step team showcase. GOV is made up of 58 males from various high schools in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area and use step as one of its programs

to engage members, in addition to instilling values such as leadership, academic excellence and community service. “Street-based dance has played an important role in today’s pop culture and we are excited to pay tribute to its influence,” said Travis Howser, director of events and theaters at Grand Center Inc. in a press release. “The curators of our two showcases are totally immersed in these genres and know exactly what the crowds will love. I think we can expect two very high-energy performances.” Additionally, Grand Center, in collaboration with the Center of Creative Arts (COCA), is again planning a choreographed community street dance. The community is invited to learn this dance through an instructional YouTube video and will perform it with the rest of the crowd on the day of the festival. Choreographed by renowned hip hop instructor and choreographer Anthony “Redd” Williams, the instructional video will “go live” in late-August. Started as a flash mob in 2009, the community dance has morphed into a crowd favorite. No registration is required, but some practice at home, just like the pros, is a fun way to prep for the big event. Audiences can also look for performances by several finalists from the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation's St. Louis Teen Talent Showcase Competition held this spring at the Fox Theatre. The Cotton Club, which won first place at the competition, consists of three young men who just graduated from Central Visual and Performing Arts High School. Each has trained in many styles of dance but for the competition, they performed an a capella tap piece, which includes both solo and ensemble work. Second place finalists The Super Sick Crew, comprised of four young men who will be seniors this fall at Hazelwood East High School, will perform its original hip-hop dance

Music

Marcia Ball to appear on July 15 By MATT WINTE For The Edge A little bit of the Gulf Coast is coming to Edwardsville on Sunday, July 15, when Marcia Ball and her band come to the Wildey Theatre. The show is a part of her current tour in support of her Grammynominated CD "Roadside Attractions." Ball's music career began many years ago when she was a

child. Born in Orange, Texas, in 1949 to a family of musicians, it was almost predetermined that she would play music. At the age of 5 she began taking piano lessons, learning the songs of the time and discovering her love for the music of New Orleans. "I grew up with Ray Charles, Little Richard, Fats Domino, and Motown," said Ball. Ball absorbed all of these influences along with many

For The Edge

Pictured are two views of Marcia Ball. others including Chuck Berry, Etta James, Irma Thomas, Muddy Waters, Pinetop Perkins, Professor Longhair, Howlin' Wolf and many more. Her life as a performer got serious in 1966. While she attended Louisiana State University, she formed her first band, Gum. She got even deeper in the music, when in 1970 she was on her way to San Francisco and her car broke down in Austin, Texas, and while waiting for her car to be repaired she decided to stay. "I just fell in love with town," Ball said over the phone. She quickly formed a band called Freda and the Firedogs and began playing in the numerous clubs around Austin. During this time, she began discovering her voice on the piano and working on her song writing. "It was an adventure," said Ball. "Back then it was almost shameful to your family to play in a band. But because of the musicians in the family I had permission to explore." Freda and the Firedogs called it quits in 1974. Ball decided it was time to try her hand at a solo career and was signed to Capitol Records. She released her debut record "Circuit Queen" in 1978. Over the years she continued to hone her talents and released more records, many receiving critical acclaim. In 1998 she gained national acclaim, receiving a Grammy nomination. This was followed up in 1999 by a performance with B.B. King for public television, "In Performance at the White House." Since then she has been featured on National Public Radio, Austin City Limits and the Late Show

With David Letterman. Ball’s style can only be described as R&B, emotional truthful ballads, fiery passionate blues, with soul that only comes from truly loving and being connected with the music she plays. Her band never over plays or wastes a single note, instead playing every song like they were only allowed a certain amount of notes per song and were very careful to never exceed it and what they come up with is much better for it. "I'm very fortunate to have such a great band," said Ball. Her newest release, "Roadside Attractions," will be a big part of the show with many of her classic songs mixed in there for good measure. "Roadside Attractions" marks a creative high water mark for Ball who wrote or co-wrote every single song on the record. The album opens with the infectious "That's How It Goes" that is guaranteed to get people moving. “Between Here and Kingdom Come,” slows everything down and finds Ball’s soulful vocals waxing about the simple life in her home town. A bluesy ballad “I Heard It All,” displays Ball’s lyrical talents with instrumentation that complements the lyrics. “This Used To Be Paradise,” is the strongest song of the record that recounts Gulf Coast life and how everything is changed. The mood goes through a complete 360 with “Sugar Boogie,” an upbeat song that lifts you up. “The Party’s Still Going On” closes the record with a lot of energy and leaves you wanting more. The concert at the Wildey will not be the first time she

July 12, 2012

has played in the area, having played a few times at venues in St. Louis. According to Ball, she is very happy to be back in the area and looking forward to meeting people and making new friends. Ball's list of accomplishments reflect a life of performances. Four Grammy nominations, a No. 1 record on the Billboard Blues Chart, Blues Music Award for Contemporary Blues Album of the Year, Female Blues Artist of the Year, and four time winner of the Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year Awards are among her many accomplishments. With all of her accomplishments, Ball has no plans of slowing down and is working hard like all musicians are right now, to deal with all of the changes in the music business because of the Internet and ITunes. She urges all people to pay for the music that musicians have worked so hard to create. "When people download a record with out paying for it, it makes it harder for bands who need those record sales to pay for gas to make it to the next gig," Ball said. But Ball also sees the positive part of what has happened. "There are more choices than ever in music," Ball said. "It's a great thing. Music changes the world. We need music." Ball will be playing at the Wildey Theatre on Sunday, July 15 at 8 p.m. “I’m already looking forward to coming back and I haven’t even been there yet,” said Ball about her upcoming show.

Music Tuning in James Taylor to perform at The Fox James Taylor and his band are coming to the Fox Theatre on Friday, July 20 for one intimate and memorable night. James Taylor ’s music embodies the art of songwriting in its most personal and universal forms. He is a master at describing specific, even autobiographical situations in a way that resonates with people everywhere. As a recording and touring artist, Taylor has set a precedent to which countless young musicians have aspired. His warm baritone is among the most recognized voices in popular music and his distinctive style of guitar-playing has been enormously influential. He has sold more than fifty million albums throughout his career and has earned forty gold, platinum, and multi-platinum awards and five Grammy Awards. His songs have had a profound influence on songwriters and music lovers from all walks of life: “Fire and Rain,” “Country Road,” “Something in the Way She Moves,” “Mexico,” “Shower the People,” “Your Smiling Face,” “Carolina In My Mind,” “Sweet Baby James,” “Don’t Let Me Be Lonely Tonight,” “ Yo u C a n C l o s e Yo u r E y e s , ” “Walking Man,” “Never Die Young,” “Shed a Little Light,” “Copperline,” and many more. In a career marked by artistic triumphs, this past year for Taylor has been notable for both creative virtuosity and recognition of exceptional achievement. In March 2011, he was awarded the National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama in a ceremony at the White House. Taylor was also honored with a Carnegie Hall Perspectives series, which consisted of four concert evenings presented by Carnegie Hall and featuring Taylor and personally selected musical guests.

Fox to host Crosby, Stills & Nash The Fabulous Fox will host ground-breaking rock music act Crosby, Stills and Nash at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 2. Tickets are $101, $76, $61 and $46 and are available at the Fox Box Office or by calling 314/5341111. Order tickets online at www. metrotix.com. Crosby, Stills & Nash (CSN) have announced an extensive U.S. summer tour, beginning early June and continuing through the end of September. The tour will stop at the Fabulous Fox Theatre on August 2 at 8 pm. CSN will be donating $1 from each ticket sold on the U.S. Summer Tour to charity.  In addition, special benefit seats will be available for purchase through The Guacamole Fund (www.guacfund.org). The players accompanying Crosby, Stills & Nash on their 2012 tour are: Todd Caldwell (organ), Shane Fontayne (guitar), Steve DiStanislao (drums), Kevin McCormick (bass), and James Raymond (keyboards). More than four decades since CSN first harmonized in Laurel Canyon, and played their first-ever concert as a trio at the legendary Woodstock festival, its members continue a creative partnership that is one of the most influential and enduring in music.  David Crosby, Stephen Stills, and Graham Nash have each been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame two times—once with Crosby, Stills & Nash, and a second time with The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, and The Hollies, respectively.  They have also been inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, with the honor recognizing both CSN as a group, and each member as individual solo artists. CSN’s music first became a cornerstone of rock ‘n roll with the self-titled 1969 debut LP, one of Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.” Ever since— through changing times, various configurations, and acclaimed solo careers—Crosby, Stills & Nash have continued to tour and record as “three together.” www. crosbystillsnash.com

The group is using the tour to continue expanding on their social media interaction with fans. They credit a large amount of its success to its early adoption and encouragement of sharing content. "This group started because of a viral video on YouTube,” explains group member Randy Stine. “From day one, we have encouraged fans to upload photos and videos from our shows, even expanding venue photo policies to ensure that this was possible. We are excited to really drive home the idea of building a fan community around content by naming our tour #SNCLive." As its name suggest, #SNClive will be a multi-platform concert event, with the hashtag giving fans a way to search and categorize content specific to this tour across all social media platforms. The tour will follow seven shows this summer and the first ever Straight No Chaser Cruise – “Chasers at Sea” – on the Carnival Destiny. PBS will also continue to support Straight No Chaser by airing their highly successful TV special, “Songs of the Decades,” during the June and Fall pledge periods. In addition to their cruise and upcoming dates, Straight No Chaser will be going into the studio this summer to record their fourth full-length album, which is set to be released this fall.

Christmas in July concert set In the heat of the summer, Jacoby Arts Center is planning a toy drive to bring thoughts of a cooler time of year for Riverbend area residents. Christmas in July is a community service project aimed at helping families and individuals who have been affected by job recession or other difficult life struggles. Eva Perkins, one of the members of Jacoby’s Performing Arts Committee, came up with the idea and received full support from the Arts Center. “I just thought there are people who are suffering and we could get a jump start on helping in advance of the true holiday season,� Perkins said. “And what better marketing idea – Christmas in July just seemed like a good slogan.� Community Hope Center in Cottage Hills is the agency that will benefit from this effort. Established in 1988 as a nonprofit corporation

with a main and primary purpose to help the poor, the homeless, children, and the elderly with programs that meet their individual needs, the Center is solely supported by local businesses, foundations, private donations, and receives no state funding. It is self-supporting through its own philanthropy efforts. Jacoby Arts Center is asking the community to help in two ways: donate at its LIVE at Jacoby: Saturday Nights concert on July 28 or anytime in July during regular business hours. Unwrapped new toys can be dropped off Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Thursdays, hours are extended until 8 p.m. Donations at the concert won’t take the place of the admission price, but with the toy donation concertgoers will receive a coupon

Members

to be used at the beverage bar. General admission at the concert is $10 per person ($8 for seniors 65+ and students) and the music flows from 7 to 9 p.m. Vocalist Danita Mumphard will be featured at the concert on the 28th. Mumphard recently headlined the Miles Davis Jazz Festival in May at Lewis and Clark Community College and has a multiple octave voice range. Her Jazz CD, "With Love", was released in October 2005. She has been featured at the Whitaker Jazz Festival, Missouri Botanical Garden, as well as in Jazz shows at Laumeier Sculpture Park and City Park in Edwardsville.

Dining Delights Sage doesn't deserve its low profile By J.M. HIRSCH AP Food Editor It’s hard to not love an ingredient that loves fat. And that’s exactly what sage does — it partners perfectly with foods rich in oils and fats. That’s why it is so common in hearty holiday foods. Actually, that’s part of sage’s problem, and why it has a relatively low profile in American cooking compared to other savory herbs, such as basil and oregano. While we think of all manner of uses for other herbs in all seasons, we tend to pigeonhole sage as a Thanksgiving herb suited mostly for stuffing and turkey. But the richly peppery-rosemary flavor of fresh sage can more than earn its keep all year. You just need to know how to use it. Let’s start with what it is. Sage is a perennial related to mint. There are many varieties, including pineapple-flavored sage from Mexico (best suited for desserts). Sage generally is sold in three forms — fresh, dry ground and rubbed. Fresh is pretty self-explanatory. When

shopping for it, look for leaves that are tenderfirm with a downy coating and no brown spots. Rubbed is dried sage leaves that have been quite literally rubbed off the stems. It tends to be pillowy soft and retains flavor well. Dry ground sage is the least appealing of the three. It has a more muted flavor and doesn’t hold up well in cooking. Skip it. So what to do with sage outside of Thanksgiving? Just look overseas. Because sage pairs so well with dairy, the English have long made a sage-flecked cheese known as sage Derby. So take their cue and add a few fresh sage leaves to your next grilled cheddar sandwich. The English also like to use sage with sauteed onions, usually destined for a stuffing. So why not toss fresh sage into caramelized onions, then use them to top a pizza with gouda? In Germany, sage lands in sausages. And sometimes beer. Not sure about the last one, but I’m inclined to borrow the sage and caramelized onions from England and spoon them into a bun with a grilled sausage. In Italy, sage rules saltimbocco and osso bucco. But it’s

also a natural with butter-drenched pasta. Fried Sage and Parmesan Penne A great example of how the simplest of dishes can be so overwhelmingly good. For a heartier version of this dish, add cooked chicken or apple-chicken sausage. Start to finish: 20 minutes Servings: 4 1 pound penne pasta 1 egg 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour Salt and ground black pepper 12 large fresh sage leaves 4 tablespoons butter 1/3 cup pine nuts 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook according to package directions. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water, then drain the pasta, return it to the pot, cover and set aside. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, lightly beat the egg. Place the flour in a second bowl, then mix a bit of salt and pepper into it. One at a time, dunk each sage leaf first

in the egg, then in then in the flour. Shake off any excess flour, then set aside. In a small skillet over medium-high, melt the butter. When it just starts to bubble, add the sage leaves and fry for 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add the pine nuts to the skillet and toast in the butter that remains in the pan for 1 minute. Drizzle the butter and pine nuts over the cooked pasta. Sprinkle in the Parmesan and use tongs to toss until melted. While tossing, drizzle in just enough of the reserved pasta cooking water to create a thick sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Divide between serving plates, then top each portion with fried sage leaves.
