The Treasure Shack Lamps – and a whole lot more By ANN NICCUM Of The Edge East Vandalia has become a place to shop for unique things. The shops along the roadway including the long-time shop – Maggie’s Primitive Cottage – were recently joined by Niko’s Antiques and Collectibles, located at 452a East Vandalia. And now, a new shop called The Treasure Shack, located at 452b East Vandalia, has opened. Kelly and Curt Lovsey of Edwardsville started the business nearly a week ago in the same place Maggie Schmitz started her business in 2003 – the little yellow building right behind Niko’s. “We are just hoping it will do well,” Kelly said. Kelly said she and her husband Curt have been involved in collecting unique things for years. Most recently, she said they have had booths at Trish’s Treasures in Maryville and the Historic Route 66 Flea Market off of the Chain of Rocks Road in Granite City. Kelly said they learned this
building on Vandalia was available and thought this would be a good space for their business. “This has been a dream of ours for a long-time,” Kelly said. “To have a shop of our own.” She said they are also friends of Schmitz and she has been very supportive of their endeavor. T h e Tr e a s u r e S h a c k h a s a variety of items for sale from die cast cars, beer and HarleyDavidson memorabilia, Coca-Cola collectibles, Shawnee ceramics, jewelry (new and vintage, antique furniture, angels, clocks, lamps and more. “All different types of clocks and vintage clocks,” Kelly said.
But the one things Kelly said she is known for is lamps. “A lot of lamps,” she said. Kelly said she also loves
collecting angels in memory of her son who passed in 2007. “ We h a v e a l i t t l e b i t o f everything,” Kelly said. “And most prices are negotiable.” Kelly said they go to auctions and estate sales often, so merchandise available is changing all the time. “We try to get nice things,” Kelly said. In addition, Kelly said if someone asks for something specific, they will try and find it for them. For more information, contact the Lovseys at 307-5534.

Ask Dr. Jacobs
A New Definition to Clean Skin!
Kristen M. Jacobs, M.D. On average, people usually spend 20 seconds or less cleansing their skin daily. With all the dirt, debris, and pollution surrounding us, what are we really doing for our skin? A “quick cleanse” of the face does not always remove all the daily buildup our skin endures, much less all the makeup women apply and re-apply throughout the day! This buildup can cause blackheads, pimples, and can drastically age and dull your skin’s complexion over time. Dr. Jacobs at Ooh La La Anti Aging and Laser Center believes your skin should not only look great, but be healthy. The Clarisonic Pro Cleansing System removes up to 6 times more makeup and daily buildup than manually cleansing your face. This gentle brush cleanses, clarifies, revitalizes and is great for ALL skin types. The Clarisonic Pro allows your skin to fully absorb skin care products such as serums and moisturizers, allowing you to get the full benefit of your skin care regimen! The Clarisonic Body Brush is also a great addition to your daily routine, having all of the wonderful benefits of the Clarisonic cleansing brush, only on your body! There are different kinds of Clarisonic Cleansing Systems such as the Clarisonic Plus- most commonly found in retail and department stores. The Clarisonic Pro is the ONLY Clarisonic Brush with 4 different speeds for optimal cleansing and replaceable brush heads (such as the body brush). Call Dr. Jacobs today to schedule your complementary consultation or skin analysis!

Unlikely Educator Spurs Economic Growth With Alphabet Marty McCabe of Koetting Ford Says The ABCs Can Help You Own A Nicer, Newer Car Just In Time For “Back To School”
EDWARDSVILLE – At it once again is the uncommon car dealer, Marty McCabe from Koetting Ford, just in time for the new school year to begin. McCabe says his new approach to owning a nicer, newer car will simplify your life and help the local economy. “Let’s face it…everybody wants a nicer, newer car. And buying a car is great for the economy! A better car can help you get to work, get your kids to school on time and in style, plus it helps us keep 48 good people employed here at our business…not to mention the countless other folks who work to design, build, transport, maintain, fuel and insure the vehicles,” explained Marty McCabe. McCabe says that buying a car doesn’t need to be complicated or stressful. He believes that there’s a lesson to be learned from grade school. “My kids are getting ready to head back to school, and that got us thinking about learning the ABCs and 123s – and how, back in school, life was simple and fun. I think buying a car should be simple and fun too…so I created the ABCs of Car Buying.”
This “back to school” themed sale makes this month an excellent time to upgrade to a newer car, truck van or SUV. Here‛s how it works:
A: Any trade, running or not, gets the highest trade value of the year! B: Bring in just $250 for a down payment, and you could drive away the same day.
Buying a car should be simple and fun, so Koetting Ford has created the ABCs of Car Buying. A: Any Trade gets the highest trade value of the year! B: Bring in $250 for a down payment and drive away the same day. C: Credit is not an issue because we work with the most helpful lenders in the country. Our goal is 100% approval. Call or visit Koetting Ford at Illinois Rt. 3 at Pontoon Rd., Granite City, IL 62040 today!
C: Credit is not an issue. We work with the most helpful lenders in the country and understand that bad things happen to good people. Our goal this month is 100% approval. Additionally, when you buy any vehicle from Koetting Ford before August 31, we’ll donate $100 to the elementary, middle or high school of your choice. What a great way to kick the school year oﬀ the right way! “We always have fun here at Koetting Ford but this month is going to be something to remember. We’re helping the schools, helping the kids, helping the economy and helping you too. It’s never been easier to get a nicer, newer
We want to sell cars. You want to buy a car. So we‛ve simpliﬁed the process and made owning a nicer, newer car as easy as ABC. Here’s the deal:

car!” The generous tradein allowance was inspired by the popular Cash For Clunkers program initiated by President Obama, which proves even car dealers can learn a thing or two. “People are still talking about Cash For Clunkers…which happened one year ago this month. We pay attention to what our customers want. They’ve been asking for Cash For Clunkers to come back, and we’re giving it to them. We thought back to school time was the perfect time to show oﬀ what we’ve learned!” explained McCabe.
Why Is August A Good Month To Buy?
Many people don’t realize that the new car manufacturers start releasing next year’s models this time of year. That means that every car at the dealership essentially turns one year older this month than it was last month. That extra month drives prices down making August one of the best times of year to buy.
Banged Up Credit From The School of Hard Knocks?
“At Koetting Ford we realize that things have been pretty tough the past few years. We’re really good at helping you overcome the bruises on your credit report that you’ve earned from living in the real world. We believe in helping people make a fresh start. Come in and give us a chance to help,” says McCabe.
ABCs Make Buying A Car Fast, Fun and Easy
What will you do with the extra money you receive for your trade-in? You could use it to lower your monthly payments. You could use it to be able to aﬀord “more car” for your money. You could use it to pay oﬀ other bills. You could even use it buy all new clothes for your kids before school starts. It’s entirely up to you. Come in to Koetting Ford located at Illinois Rt. 3 at Pontoon Rd., Granite City, IL 62040 or call 618-452-5400 and buy a nicer, newer vehicle before August 31 and take advantage of top dollar for your trade, $250 down payments, and more lenient credit requirements. Plus let Koetting Ford donate $100 to the school of your choice.

Tour of Illinois flower and wine operations set Brightflower Nursery in Stockton and Famous Fossil Winery in Cedarville are the destinations of a tour sponsored by University of Illinois Extension. The tour is scheduled for Friday, August 13, and will begin at Brightflower Nursery at 9 a.m. Jeanie McKewan and Michael Staver started Brightflower Nursery in 2006. “After working for a variety of business entrepreneurs on Chicago’s North Shore, I decided that it was time to start my own,” said McKewan, who is president of Brightflower. “I have always been involved in growing and gardening and have a master’s degree in plant pathology.” Brightflower Nursery is certified organic. McKewan said the choice to become certified was partly about nurturing the land, but also as a marketing niche. “We are small with very little capital so it is difficult to build the business. We’re far from some of our market, so delivery costs are high,” she said. Visitors will tour the greenhouse and hoop house production, the field production of cut flowers, the bouquet-
building facility, and the cooler for flowers. For more about the nursery, visit http://www.brightflowernursery. com. Mid-morning the tour will caravan to Famous Fossil Winery in Cedarville, which is owned and operated by Ken and Pam Rosmann. They began by planting the vineyard in 2004 and today have over 2,000 grapevines. The winery was opened in 2008. T h e v i n e y a rd i s c e r t i f i e d biodynamic. “Our wines are made with the minimum of handling and preservatives,” said Pam Rosmann. “We do not use any genetically modified yeasts to ferment the wine, and we use evaporated cane juice for our sweet wines.” T h e R o s m a n n s h a v e a l s o incorporated green technology in their structures. “Our building was built with maximum insulation in the walls, roof and windows,” Rosmann said. “We use a heat exchanger, and a highvelocity heating and cooling system with on-demand hot water. Our woodwork, tasting bar, and display cabinets were grown, milled and built using local resources. All of our appliances are energy star and we use as many recycled products as we can find. We serve local foods as much as we can for our private parties and in our café.” Guests on the tour will visit the tasting room, the vineyard, and the winery operation, as well as the fossils that were discovered when the
vineyard was being planted. Lunch will be served at the winery, and the tour will conclude at 2 p.m. For more about the winery, visit www.famousfossilwinery.com . “The University of Illinois Extension in northwestern Illinois has been active in supporting local foods efforts and providing training for small farms for the past five years,” said Margaret Larson, county director at the Stephenson and Winnebago County Extension unit. “As part of these ongoing efforts and initiatives, we are pleased to partner with the U of I small farms program and the sustainable agriculture tours to provide area residents with the chance to gain more insight into the local businesses that contribute to the state’s economy.” The final tour for the 2010
sustainable agriculture tour series is: September 22, Agritourism – Farm Fresh Fun Country Corner Henry County http://www.country-corner.com A fee of $20 per person will be charged for each tour, which includes lunch. Two adults pay $30 when registered together, and children under the age of 10 attend free. Registration at least one week in advance is required.

Rend Lake’s well-kept secret Seasons Lodge and Condominiums By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge By Debbie Settle I sometimes visit a location that I really want to keep to myself, hoping that it never becomes overrun with tourists. Rend Lake and the surrounding area is one of those places. Seasons Lodge and Condominiums is a complex on the golf course at Rend Lake. The lodging itself is not on the actual lake, but it is within a mile driving distance. The Rend Lake Golf Course is a beautiful, renowned 27-hole course that people come from all over the country to play on. There is a lighted driving range also. Seasons Lodge and Condominiums is located right on the course, with the club house and Gibby’s on the Green Restaurant directly adjacent to it. The welcoming atmosphere begins with the inviting front porch, complete with tables and comfortable rockers and chairs for relaxing, visiting or playing a round of cards. Enter the front lobby to another comfortable living ro o m a r r a n g e m e n t in front of the fireplace, complete with a checker game ready for fun. A beautiful staircase leads to the second floor of the lodge. The only downside of the stair case is that there is no elevator. So if you cannot carry your luggage up stairs or if you cannot climb stairs, make sure to book on the first floor. The lodge offers affordable prices and the furnishings are up to date and comfortable. The outdoor pool is a gathering place for everyone. Young and old enjoy the relaxing poolside recliners, chairs and tables, along with a dip in the clear blue water. Also on the pool deck is an atrium with a whirlpool. Grab a couple of friends, throw on your suit, get a beverage and climb in for a relaxing soak. The rooms come in a number of sizes with a variety of options. Some rooms offer a refrigerator and other amenities. Some rooms have spas, some have fireplaces and some have both. There is nothing more romantic than a relaxing evening in the whirlpool, enjoying a beverage, with the fireplace creating the perfect ambiance. For those who need to have wireless access, there if WiFi available
throughout the building. Just check at the front desk for directions on how to access. There are no pets allowed at the complex, and they ask that guests not bring outdoor grills. This is for everyone’s comfort and safety. The affordable rates change from summer to winter, so check the Web site or call to get the most up-to-date rates. There are also a number of golf packages and the rates are based on per person with double occupancy. The rates include accommodations with a double queen room, 18 holes of golf and a golf cart. If you are interested in a condo, they offer short-term and long-term rentals. With the breathtaking views of the course, there are 23 units that range from two bedroom, two bath, to three bedroom, three baths. Each unit is fully furnished with full service kitchens, Jacuzzi master baths and private patio or balcony. All of this does not even include the activities that can be enjoyed on beautiful Rend Lake. Bring your boat or jet skis, there is parking available. After your round of golf, take the short drive over and enjoy the lake. You can also bring your bikes and ride the many trails found throughout the Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park that connects to the lake and Seasons complex. You can read more about the complex and about Rend Lake by visiting www.rendlake.org. There is an icon on the home page for the Seasons Lodge and Condominiums. Or you can call 618-629-2353 or e-mail golf@ rendlake.org.

Travel Travel briefs AP source: Obamas to vacation on Gulf Coast WASHINGTON (AP) — A White House official says President Barack Obama and his family will vacation on Florida’s Gulf Coast next month. The Obamas are scheduled to travel to the coast on Aug. 14 and stay the weekend. Obama has made four trips to the Gulf region, including one overnight stay, since an underwater well began spewing oil into the Gulf of Mexico in April. First lady Michelle Obama is making her second visit to the area on Friday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the trip had not been formally announced. Both the president and first lady have made a point of encouraging people to visit those Gulf Coast beaches that are open and free of oil damage to help the local economy.
Rare photos of Amelia Earhart in Hawaii on display HONOLULU (AP) — Amelia Earhart is returning to The Royal Hawaiian. The historic Waikiki hotel is hosting an exhibition of rarely seen photographs taken of the pioneering aviator when she visited Hawaii and stayed at the “Pink Palace of the Pacific” during the 1930s. The black-and-white images show a Earhart relaxing in a swimsuit and leaning against a palm tree while she gazes at the ocean. A few show her observing legendary surfer and Hawaii icon Duke Kahanamoku carve a pineapple for her. The photos show a side of Earhart many people might not be familiar with, especially those who have only seen her wearing a bomber jacket and aviator pants. “They bring her to life,” said Lynn Krantz, the archivist at Matson Navigation Co. which found the images in their files last year. “For instance, when you look at this one and you see her smile — it’s like whoa, joie de vivre,” Krantz said, using the French phrase for “joy of living.” Matson, which operated a luxury ocean liner between California and Hawaii in the early 20th century, built the Royal Hawaiian in the 1927 to give its well-heeled passengers a place to stay in the islands. One of the photos shows Earhart listening to guitarists on a lanai that’s next to the lounge where the exhibit is being held. Several shots show Earhart during a two-week trip to Hawaii that began in December 1934. She had arrived in Honolulu on Matson’s S.S. Lurline from Los Angeles, with her husband George Putnam, a publicist, and a Lockheed Vega airplane.
August 5, 2010
The couple initially explained they planned to use the plane to tour the islands. A few days later they surprised everyone with the announcement Earhart would pilot the plane back to California, a journey no one — man or woman — had ever attempted. She completed the flight in 18 hours on Jan. 12, 1935. Other shots show her on her last trip to Hawaii in March 1937 — several months before she vanished over the South Pacific during an attempt to be the first woman to fly around the world. Earhart, then 39, and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared on July 2 en route to Howland Island from New Guinea. Kelly Hoen, general manager of The Royal Hawaiian, said she’s heard from longtime returning guests who are enjoying getting a glimpse of what hotel looked like when their parents stayed there. Younger guests, meanwhile, are learning more about the heritage of resort, she said. Hoen stressed everyone — not just those staying at the five-star hotel — are welcome to enjoy the exhibit. “We encourage everybody to come and take a look,” Hoen said. The exhibit of 65 photos, which opened Saturday — Earhart’s 113th birthday — is scheduled through the end of the year.
to 50,000 feet, then released before its rocket engine ignites for a highspeed ascent into space, where passengers will experience a few minutes of weightlessness. The spaceship’s twin tails and portions of the wings will then rotate about 65 degrees upward to create high drag, slowing re-entry into the atmosphere and preventing
a buildup of heat on the ship’s skin. At an altitude of about 70,000 feet, the tails will rotate back down to a conventional aircraft configuration for the glide back to a runway landing. The photographs were taken as SpaceShipTwo was being prepared for its third captive-carry flight. “Nobody’s ever seen
SpaceShipTwo with the wings feathered before,” Attenborough said in a brief phone interview. “It’s another sign of progress and quite an interesting view of the spaceship.” The mothership, a four-engine jet dubbed WhiteKnightTwo, carries the spaceship on the center of its wing between two fuselages.
SpaceShipTwo may make first glide test this year LOS ANGELES (AP) — Virgin Galactic’s space tourism rocket SpaceShipTwo may fly free in its first glide test later this year, a company official said Friday. The six-passenger spaceship has been carried aloft three times attached to the wing of its special jet-powered mothership, including a July 15 flight with two pilots aboard for the first time. That flight, conducted by spaceship-builder Scaled Composites LLC over California’s Mojave Desert, allowed the crew to evaluate all systems and functions in the air, said Stephen Attenborough, an executive with Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic in London. “Scaled are now evaluating the data from this recent captive-carry flight before we know when the first SS2 independent glide flight will be but there’s a reasonable possibility that we could see it happen in the Fall,” Attenborough said in an email to The Associated Press. Virgin Galactic also released the first photographs of SpaceShipTwo with its wings and tail structures in the “feathered” position, a unique and critically important element of the system created by legendary aviation designer Burt Rutan. SpaceShipTwo will be carried by the mothership to an altitude of up

NGlassworks Jewelry can be rocket science
By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge One of the most popular innovations in art these days is for artists to turn their work into something for daily use. Whether it be pottery for your kitchen or d i s p l a y i n y o u r l i v i n g ro o m , glassware used for dining or display, or even jewelry for special occasions or everyday wear. Artist Nancy Giere, a fused glass artist, began her life interested in all mediums of art. Instead of a toy or security blanket, she carried around a tangled rainbow of yarn that she pulled from her mother’s knitting basket. As soon as she was old enough, her mother helped her manage a crochet hook and a knitting spool. She jokes in her bio about how she created endless coils of yarn and had visions of turning her mother’s leftover yarn into a room-size braided rug. Si n c e t h a t t i m e , N a n c y h a s knit, stitched, woven and beaded her way through life. She feels it relieves stress and quiets her mind. After taking a glass fusing class for fun, she set up her own work area in her basement. She began making her fused pieces in to jewelry, or wearable art. Her family and friends loved what she was creating and immediately wanted
to know “How much?” Not only did they find it beautiful, they wanted to own it. So after a time of doing some market research and additional creations, Nancy decided to begin NGlassworks, LLC. This has allowed her to keep creating and making a living while doing it. N a n c y ’ s creations are made
f ro m “ d i c h ro i c ” ( p ro n o u n c e d dye-kro-ick) glass. Dichroic glass was created by NASA when the need arose to create glass face shields and other equipment to block harmful spectrums of light. Dichroic glass adds vibrant colors and dimension to art glass jewelry, sculpture and functional objects.
The glass is made in a vacuum chamber where hot glass is coated with several micro thin layers of metallic oxides (e.g. titanium, chromium, selenium a n d a l u m i n u m ) . T h i s p ro c e s s creates a crystalline structure on the glass, which causes light to fracture. Each piece has at least t h re e c o l o r s ; t h e c o l o r o f t h e
glass, the color that reflects from the glass and a second refracted color that can be seen at a 45degree angle. The result of Nancy’s choice of using dichroic glass in her fused glass creations is a beautiful array of jewelry products, decorative plates, glass coasters and beaded handbags. She also has a complete Art Glass Tile Collection that you can use for limitless ideas. Her pieces are unique, original and a spectrum of amazing color. They are all hand-crafted with the finest quality of products, whether it be sterling silver or satin cording in her jewelry or hand embroidered glass, crystal and semi precious beads t h a t a c c o m p a n y t h e d i c h ro i c glass cabachons that adorn her handbags. Her pieces can be viewed in full color at her Web site at www. nglassworks.com. If you are interested in purchasing her products, they are available only in select shops and boutiques. The three nearest locations are: Fran’s at 427 South Main St., St. Charles, Mo.; and at Ginger ’s, 1980 West Main St., in St. Charles, Ill.; 60174, www. gingersglassart.com and Arts & Artisans, Ltd., 108 South Michigan Ave., Chicago, 60174.

The Arts Artistic adventures Immediacy Theatre Project Presents “Drawn & Quartered” Immediacy Theatre Project (ITP) invades a new venue as it continues its 2010 season with the Drawn and Quartered series at Mad Art Gallery (2727 South 12th St., St. Louis, MO 63118) July 30 and 31, August 20 and 21, September 23 and 24, and October 29 and 30, with new plays each month. Doors open at 7:00 pm with the show starting at 8:00 pm each night. Tickets are $8 at the door. Each Drawn & Quartered offers thirty-five new two-minute plays performed in an order chosen by the audience. The super-short plays are written by a crack team of ITP ensemble members, and they abandon many conventional theatrical elements such as character, location and suspension of disbelief. In these plays, the ensemble members portray themselves, the audience is always acknowledged, and the plays always exist exactly where they are: in an art gallery in St. Louis. Says ITP nArtistic Director Matt Heckman, “You don’t just come to Drawn & Quartered; you come to be part of it. Our audiences make this series special.” This year ’s episodes will be directed by Heckman, Director of Development Danielle Borsch and Managing Director Kyle Kratky, and 2010 marks the fifth anniversary of Drawn & Quartered. “Although we have five years of experience at being Drawn & Quartered under our theatrical belts, the show never gets tired,” says Borsch. “It’s a different experience every single time: different plays, new commentaries on what’s going on in the world, fresh pop culture trends, and a changing order of plays that alters the plays themselves.” In honor of ITP’s five-year milestone with Drawn & Quartered, this year ’s episodes are going to have an extra-special edge. “We’re proud to announce that Drawn & Quartered has gone High Definition. We’ve always been ahead of the curve on the 3D movement – we were doing it five years ago! – but now we’re taking it further.” says Kratky. “This year we’re going HD. The plays will feel so real you can almost touch them. In fact, you can! You can touch them.” For more venue information, please visit www.madart.com.
Dance St. Louis plans 45th season Dance St. Louis will open its 45th season of bringing great dance of the world to St. Louis in October
August 5, 2010
with one of America’s premier ballet companies, Houston Ballet, and will close the following August with the 2009 Tony Award-winning Best Musical, Billy Elliot the Musical. “Through the year we will journey to emotions only dance can bring, with each performance from a company admired all over the world,” said Michael Uthoff, Dance St. Louis artistic & executive director. Dance St. Louis’ 2010-11 season opens October 8 and 9 at the Touhill Performing Arts Center when, as part of the first-ever American Arts Experience–St. Louis, Houston Ballet brings an intimate program of sweet and playful classical dances by George Balanchine, Houston Artistic Director Stanton Welch, and Houston Associate Choreographer Christopher Bruce. The holiday season kicks off at the Fox Theatre on December 2-5 with The Joffrey Ballet in Nutcracker at the Fox, combining dancing of “exceptional fire and exuberance” (Chicago SunTimes), Tchaikovsky’s evergreen score played live by the Ballet Orchestra of St. Louis, luscious Victorian sets and costumes, and performances by young St. Louisarea singers and dancers. Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet comes to St. Louis for the first time at the Touhill on January 28 and 29. In just seven years, this New York-based troupe of 16 international dancers has vaulted into the front ranks with its cuttingedge repertory from Europe’s most daring choreographers. On March 11 and 12, the monumental Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater returns to the Fox on March 11 and 12 for a mixed program blending modern dance and African American spirit, climaxed by the celebration of 50 years of its signature masterwork, Revelations. On March 25-27, the Fox explodes with the ever-popular international percussion sensation STOMP, co-presented by the U.S. Bank Broadway Series. On April 8 and 9, the Touhill blossoms into phantasmagoric visions of M o t h e r N a t u re w i t h M O M I X in Botanica. Creatures real and mythical materialize thanks to props, costumes, lighting, and the impossibly nimble dancerillusionists. On May 26, 27 and 28, Dance St. Louis and the Touhill co-present SPRING TO DANCE FESTIVAL 2011, the fourth annual Memorial Day Weekend extravaganza of 30 dance companies from across the Midwest and beyond, for three completely different programs over three nights at only $10 per night.

and Best Choreography for Peter Darling’s dances, with music by Elton John. S e a s o n t i c k e t p a c k a g e s a re currently on sale. For more

QuickGlance Movie Reviews
We’re happy to report, with great relief, that all the hype is justified. Writer-director Christopher Nolan’s first film since “The Dark Knight” is a stunningly gorgeous, technically flawless symphony of images and ideas. “Memento,” the mystery-in-reverse that put Nolan on the map a decade ago, looks almost quaint by comparison. In its sheer enormity, it’s every inch a blockbuster, but in the good sense of the word: with awesomeness, ambition and scope. The cinematography, production design, effects, editing, score, everything down the line — all superb. But unlike so many summer movies assigned that tag, “Inception” is no mindless thrill ride. It’ll make you work, but that’s part of what’s so thrilling about it. With its complicated concepts about dreams within dreams, layers of consciousness and methods of manipulation, “Inception” might make you want to stop a few times just to get your bearings. The juggernaut of Nolan’s storytelling momentum, however, keeps pounding away. Leonardo DiCaprio stars as dream thief Dom Cobb, an “extractor” who enters the mind while a person is dreaming to steal their secrets; Joseph GordonLevitt plays his detail-oriented right-hand man. Ken Watanabe, as the powerful businessman Saito, hires Dom and his team for a different kind of crime: sneak into the subconscious of a competitor (Cillian Murphy) and implant an idea that will ruin his empire. Tom Hardy, Ellen Page and Dileep Rao are all excellent as members of Dom’s crew. One of the year’s best films, and it’ll surely get even better upon repeated viewings. RATED: PG-13 for sequences of violence and action throughout. RUNNING TIME: 147 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Four stars out of four.
“Countdown to Zero”
Nuclear armageddon has taken a back seat to other doomsday scenarios, from global warming to economic chaos. Lest we forget, director Lucy Walker proceeds to scare the stuffing out of viewers with this thoughtful exploration into lingering dangers of nuclear disaster, whether by a rogue nation such as Iran or North Korea, a terrorist attack or some terrible accident. The doom and gloom comes with the voice of authority. Among the dozens interviewed are Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Tony Blair and former U.S. cabinet members Robert McNamara and James Baker III. The film offers some alarming recollections about false alarms
August 5, 2010
that nearly led to catastrophe in the old U.S.-Soviet staring match. Yet these Cold War flashbacks feel like ancient history, even filler, next to Walker’s examination of the terrorist and rogue nation threats. The film’s impact might have been even stronger and more immediate had it lingered longer and probed deeper into those perils and kept the history lesson to a minimum.\ RATED: PG for thematic material, images of destruction and incidental smoking. RUNNING TIME: 91 minutes ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.
“Life During Wartime”
Todd Solondz revisits his characters from 1998’s “Happiness,” but he doesn’t reveal much that’s new about them — or his world view. People are monsters, whether they live in suburban New Jersey or suburban Florida. As writer and director, Solondz looks for the humanity within them — his preferred method is to matter-of-factly depict their alienation without a shred of pathos — but they’re still monsters nonetheless. There’s repetitious talk about forgiving and forgetting, and debate over which is preferable, but Solondz doesn’t seem particularly interested in either. Everyone stays the same, even though Solondz has replaced the cast of “Happiness” with all new actors here; he’s even inserted a couple of characters from 1995’s “Welcome to the Dollhouse,” which is still his best film. Still there’s a detached nature to the most shocking words and deeds, which frequently makes “Life During Wartime” feel almost like a parody of a Solondz film. But at the same time, the deadpan delivery of lacerating dialogue remains a reliable source of uncomfortable comedy. Solondz again reveals himself as a master of wringing laughs from the most awkward situations. Allison Janney, Michael Lerner, Shirley Henderson, Ciaran Hinds and Ally Sheedy are among the ensemble cast. RATED: Unrated but contains language, nudity and adult situations. RUNNING TIME: 97 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.
“Ramona and Beezus”
Little kids and tweens — girls, specifically — will probably eat this up, or at least be suitably amused by it.
They won’t be troubled with things like a lack of plot or narrative momentum. And it’s sad to report that, given the strength of the source material. “Ramona and Beezus” is based on Beverly Cleary’s beloved children’s books, which have been around for more than 50 years and vividly capture the playfulness and awkwardness of youth. Laurie Craig and Nick Pustay’s script features tales from several of Cleary’s books, and as a result it feels like a series of individual episodes — both madcap and heartrending — rather than a cohesive story with any real drive. And Elizabeth Allen, who also directed “Aquamarine,” plays up the antics for maximum wackiness. Newcomer Joey King has a likable way about her, though, as the high-spirited, accident-prone Ramona Quimby. The movie follows the adventures of the 9-year-old, her teenage sister, Beezus (Disney star Selena Gomez), baby Roberta, dad Robert (John Corbett) and mom Dorothy (Bridget Moynahan). Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Duhamel co-star as former high-school sweethearts and have the film’s only interesting subplot. RATED: G. RUNNING TIME: 104 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.
Despite the cryptic ads that pose the question, “Who Is Salt?” and regardless of the various twists and turns designed to throw us off, the intentions of Angelina Jolie’s super-spy character, Evelyn Salt, never really seem to be in question. Nonetheless, no actress working today is as convincing an action star as Jolie, and she does tear it up here; the fight scenes are visceral, not balletic like the “Tomb Raider” movies or supernaturally trippy as in “Wanted.” And “Salt” allows director Phillip Noyce to return to the kind of action thrillers he’s made previously, like the Tom Clancy adaptations “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger.” It’s muscular, gritty and propulsive. (Robert Elswit, an Oscar winner for “There Will Be Blood,” is the cinematographer.) It’s also totally ludicrous and lacking in even the slightest shred of humanity. What Jolie is called upon to do as a CIA operative accused of being a Russian spy grows increasingly difficult to accept, even for summer escapism. Yes, she’s supposed to be a highly trained undercover operative — whether she’s working for the United States or Russia — but this is ridiculous and even laughable when, in theory, we’re supposed to be engrossed. Liev Schreiber and Chiwetel Ejiofor co-star. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action. RUNNING TIME: 93 minutes.

Movies Zaniness rules “Ramona and Beezus” By CHRISTY LEMIRE Associated Press Little kids and tweens — girls, specifically — will probably eat up “Ramona and Beezus,” or at least be suitably amused by it. They won’t be troubled with things like a lack of plot or narrative momentum. It won’t bother them that a character ’s hair gets awkwardly hacked up after a battle with peanut butter, then appears magically restored to its original length soon afterward. They won’t think twice about the fact that a backyard is covered with gaping, muddy holes after a massive water fight and pipe explosion, then is miraculously landscaped to perfection in a day. S p e a k i n g o f a d a y, t h a t ’ s apparently how long it takes to organize a wedding for dozens of guests, including altering a gown to fit a bride who’s several inches shorter than the woman who walked down the aisle in it the first time. This all sounds like uptight, grown-up nitpicking, probably. But it’s also a reflection of a weakness in storytelling, which is sad given the strength of the source material. “Ramona and Beezus” is based on Beverly Cleary’s beloved children’s books, which have been around for more than 50 years and vividly capture the playfulness and awkwardness of youth. Laurie Craig and Nick Pustay’s script features tales from several of Cleary’s books, and as a result it feels like a series of individual episodes — both madcap and heartrending — rather than a cohesive story with any real drive. Elizabeth Allen, who also directed “Aquamarine,” plays up the antics for maximum wackiness, and they’re amplified by the uncharacteristically jaunty, intrusive score by Mark Mothersbaugh.
In this image released by 20th Century Fox, from left, Bridget Moynahan, John Corbett and Selena Gomez are shown in a scene from, “Ramona and Beezus.” Newcomer Joey King has a likable way about her, though, as the highspirited, accident-prone Ramona Quimby. She’s a natural young actress, and she even gets a chance to show some range in a couple of tearjerker moments. But the repeated fantasy sequences, which depict her imaginative interior world, have an intentionally rough-hewn aesthetic and end up looking more cheesy
than charming. Back in the reality, the movie follows the adventures of the 9-yearold, her teenage sister, Beezus (Disney star Selena Gomez), baby Roberta, dad Robert (John Corbett) and mom Dorothy (Bridget Moynahan). Ramona’s Aunt Bea (Ginnifer Goodwin) seemingly has no job because she’s around constantly to lend the sweet-but-clumsy middle
child support. This is also a good thing, though, because Bea’s subplot with next-door neighbor Hobart (Josh Duhamel) is probably the most intriguing aspect of the movie — at least for anyone over the age of 12. Bea and Hobart were highschool sweethearts; 15 years later, he wants her to accompany him to Alaska. Goodwin and Duhamel (who co-starred in “Win a Date With
Tad Hamilton!”) are extremely cute together and have tons of chemistry — but most of their moments are upended by Ramona’s silliness. She ruins Hobart’s car by spilling paint all over it in a rainbow of colors. She nearly burns down the kitchen trying to make dinner. She can’t even do show-and-tell right in class (Sandra Oh has some deadpan zingers as her strict teacher).
Children’s movie is this week’s highlight By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge Angelina Jolie loves her reputation as an action movie queen. I know she does. Tomb Raider, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Wanted, and now Salt. They all add up to make her this generation’s answer to Sigourney Weaver or Linda Hamilton. And we love her for it. She does her own stunts, which is not commonplace for an A-List star of her caliber (remember, she has an Oscar) or a mother of six. Salt aims to be more, though, than just another amped up spy movie. It wears its Hitchcockian roots like a heart on a sleeve, as Angie has to save her good name and solve the mystery herself as a wrong woman accused in a dastardly plot. I suppose one could compare it to North by Northwest, just with better special effects and without the charming sarcasm of Cary Grant. Then again, who would want that? Jolie plays Evelyn Salt, an agent for the
August 5, 2010
CIA who has done everything her country has ever asked for her, including spending months in a Korean prison, being tortured for information she never revealed. When a walk-in confessor (Daniel Olbrychski) accuses her of being a double agent for a dissident group of Russian expatriates, Salt goes on the run to solve an attempted Presidential assassination and put down the dogs who have smeared her reputation. The action sequences are pretty amazing, including a freeway chase that has Jolie l e a p i n g f ro m t h e t o p o f o n e v e h i c l e to another with surprising ease. She is pursued doggedly by agents that believe her story (Liev Schreiber) and those who don’t (Chiwetel Ejiofor), but, by movie’s end, I found this to simply be another very predictable whodunit with terrible makeup (no one would every believe Jolie in disguise as a man), implausible penetrations (the President probably does have a secret underground bunker, but
nobody’s getting in), and other suspensions of disbelief (like waking the dead) that I can’t even get my head around. Salt runs 100 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action. I give this film one star out of four. ••• Were I a naive man, I would expect that simply because Ramona and Beezus was a great movie, many people would be lining up to see it. Aside from girls under the age of six, and their doting mothers, that’s hardly the case. I must confess that my history with the tales of Beverly Cleary is spotty at best. I remember my brother having a brief fascination with a character called Ralph S. Mouse when we were in elementary school, but that’s about it. I’d heard of Ramona Quimby, t h e u b i q u i t o u s re c u r r i n g c h a r a c t e r i n many of Clearly novels, but I had never taken the opportunity to read up on her or to find out what exactly a ‘beezus’ is.
The story centers on the rambunctious, unique Ramona (Joey King) and her o l d e r s i s t e r, B e a t r i c e ( S e l e n a G o m e z ) , who goes by the nickname of Beezus. The Quimby sisters have to survive each other while dealing with their Aunt Bea’s (Ginnifer Goodwin) crazy love life, their infant sister Roberta, and their father ’s ( J o h n C o r b e t t ) re c e n t u n e m p l o y m e n t . They do it carefully (Beezus) and not at all gracefully (Ramona). While Clearly’s story was first published in early 1950s, the material is again very timely and certainly a welcome change for those of us looking for a live-action alternative to the standard summer fare that Hollywood is cooking up this year. Refreshing. Ramona and Beezus runs 104 minutes and is rated G. It is suitable for all audience, though does deal with weighty issues like job loss and the death of loved ones. I give this film three stars out of four.

"Inception" tops field at box office LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Inception” is still kicking at the box office. T h e m i n d - b e n d i n g Wa r n e r B ro s . t h r i l l e r s t a r r i n g Leonardo DiCaprio remained the No. 1 movie for the third-straight weekend with $27.5 million, bringing its total to $193.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. “Inception” edged out the weekend’s new releases: “Dinner for Schmucks,” “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” and “Charlie St. Cloud.” “’Inception’ has seeped into the cultural zeitgeist,” said Paul Dergarabedian, box-office analyst for Hollywood.com. “It’s something that everyone is talking about right now. When a movie is able to do that and something just clicks, it becomes a national — even an international — discussion, and it’s seemingly impervious to any of the newcomers.” “Dinner for Schmucks,” the Paramount comedy starring Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, followed closely behind “Inception” with $23.3 million, while the

The Sony spy caper starring Angelina Jolie as a CIA operative who goes rogue suffered a 47 percent drop from its $36.5 million opening weekend. During the busy summer movie season, top hits often drop 50 percent or more in the second weekend. Overall revenues rose for the fifth-straight weekend
as Hollywood continued to recover from a lackluster box office earlier in the summer. Receipts totaled $145 million, up over 15 percent from the same weekend last year, when receipts totaled $125.7 million and the Judd Apatow film “Funny People” debuted in the No. 1 spot with $22.6 million. Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Hollywood. com. Final figures will be released Monday. 1. “Inception,” $27.5 million. 2. “Dinner for Schmucks,” $23.3 million. 3. “Salt,” $19.2 million. 4. “Despicable Me,” $15.5 million. 5. “Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore,” $12.5 million. 6. “Charlie St. Cloud,” $12.1 million. 7. “Toy Story 3,” $5 million. 8. “Grown Ups,” $4.5 million. 9. “The Sorcerer ’s Apprentice,” $4.3 million. 10.“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse,” $3.9 million.
Yiddish seeps into American culture By AMY BIANCOLLI Houston Chronicle “Dinner for Schmucks,” which opened recently, concerns folks who compete to invite the biggest clots to dinner. It’s a remake of “Le Diner de Cons,” the title of which contains the French word for “idiot” and, uh, something specifically female. The word “schmuck” is Yiddish for its male equivalent. Such are the joys of etymology. And such are the joys of Yiddish, an ancient linguistic stew of Hebrew, German and assorted other tongues that has enlivened and reflected Jewish life and culture for about a millennium. Forcefully blunt and colorfully descriptive, it packs more meaning into a single term than most languages cram into a sentence. “It’s a very batamt language -it’s full of taste, full of feeling, it’s full of nuance and the use of the senses,” said Peninnah Schram, a professor of speech and drama at the Stern College for Women at Yeshiva University in New York City. Schram, who grew up in a Yiddish-speaking household, is also a storyteller and author of 10 books of Jewish folk tales. The can-you-top-this premise of “Dinner for Schmucks” is, she said, “very much a motif in folktales all over the world - who’s going to be the stupidest or talk first?” It’s also very much in the spirit of Yiddish, a vernacular used by the Ashkenazic Jews of central and Eastern Europe. Like its Sephardic counterpart, the Spanish-heavy Ladino, it contains elements of Hebrew and Aramaic as well as bits and pieces of local dialects. Wherever the Diaspora took them, Jews molded their language to suit. But just as Yiddish has absorbed words and sounds from varied parts of the world, this punchy, vivacious tongue has given plenty in return. For decades now it has seeped into American pop culture, crossing over from Yiddish literature and
August 5, 2010
entertainment into mainstream film, TV, press. Jewish talent arrived in Hollywood and brought along the lingo and attitude of their mame loshn, or mother tongue. “People like Paul Muni, and John Garfield, and Edward G. Robinson - these were all Jewish actors from the Yiddish theater,” Schram explained. Yiddish is everywhere. Famously deployed by the Three Stooges and the Marx Brothers, indispensable in “The Producers” and “The Frisco Kid,” it’s also shown up in “Norma Rae” (“Kvetch, kvetch, kvetch”), “Taxi!” (the Irish James Cagney chats in Yiddish, which he learned on the streets of New York) and “Clueless” (Alicia Silverstone uses “kvelling,” or gushing with pride for a loved one). The language was all over “Seinfeld,” of course; George even coined a phrase, “shiks appeal,” to describe Elaine’s allure to Jewish men as a
“shiksa” (gentile woman). Yiddish has an efficiency and pizzazz that can’t be beat, especially for a writer; I employ it on an almost weekly basis, and I’m just a goy from Connecticut. What better word than “schmaltz” (Yiddish for lard) to describe a movie’s oozing sentimentality? Or “klutz” (wooden block) to describe a bumbling character? I’m especially fond of “schlemiel” and “schlimazel,” which readers of a certain age might recall from “Laverne and Shirley” (“Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hassenpfeffer Incorporated!”). Imagine one unfortunate lunk spilling soup on another. The spiller is a schlemiel. The spill-ee, a schlimazel. Such explanations abound in Yiddishkeit. “It is such a powerfully evocative language,” said Ira J. Black, who teaches speech and theater

at Houston Community College Northwest - and first picked up Yiddish, on the sly, from his mother and her family. For instance, he says, “There is no way to define the word ’chutzpah’ unless you use it in a metaphor.” The best is unprintable. Another, cleaner definition of the word describes a man who kills his parents, comes to trial and then asks the judge for leniency - because he’s an orphan. One of Black’s favorite Yiddishisms is “schnorrer,” often defined as “beggar.” But beggar doesn’t capture the extreme parasitic tenacity - or the “chutzpah” - of the term. As Black explains it: “A beggar comes to you and asks for a dollar. You say, ‘I can’t help you,’ and he goes away. A ’schnorrer ’ comes and asks, and when you say, ‘I’m sorry, times are hard,’ he says, ‘Well, why should your hardship be put
on me?”’ (In “Animal Crackers,” Groucho sings: “Did someone call me schnorrer?”) He cited the origin, meaning and diminutive of “schmuck,” but most of these remarks were unprintable as well. Schram cited a different use of the word as it appeared in another relevant Cagney film, Billy Wilder’s sidesplitting Cold War farce “One, Two, Three.” In it, the star unleashes a long staccato “spiel” (or play) detailing the head-to-toe capitalist makeover of a young East German. At one point, he orders: “cut the schmooze (small talk).” Moments later, an assistant enters the room. “Schmuck!” he yells, and Cagney recoils in shock. “What did you say?” “Schmuck!” the man says again, then snaps open a velvet tray of baubles. He was only using the German word for jewelry.

Family Focus L’Oreal's future hangs in the balance Mother/daughter battle captures France's attention PARIS (AP) — An ugly battle at beauty icon L’Oreal between Europe’s richest woman and her daughter could end up shaping the future of the world’s No. 1 cosmetics maker. As France stands transfixed by lurid claims of dirty campaign cash and tax dodging that have ensnared President Nicolas Sarkozy’s government, the 87-year-old heiress to the L’Oreal fortune fears her daughter could let the family-owned business fall into foreign corporate hands. L o s i n g L’ O r e a l — w h o s e Maybelline mascaras, Lancome face creams and Armani perfumes are used by women around the globe — would be a blow to France, a nation as renowned for its beauty secrets as it is determined to remain a global economic player. Much hinges on the woman set to inherit the century-old company, which has weathered criticism over Nazi ties and stayed friendly with generations of French leaders on the right and left — and may well shrug off this latest storm. L’Oreal’s shares haven’t taken a hit, and have in fact risen amid the scandal, which stemmed from a feud between heiress Liliane Bettencourt and her daughter, Francoise Bettencourt Meyers. It erupted into a political affair a month ago over leaks by former
Bettencourt employees about the family’s fortune. Big shareholders and L’Oreal’s workers appear eager to maintain its family-controlled structure, its cosmetics focus — and its Frenchness. Potential suitors could be Switzerland-based Nestle, which already owns 30 percent of L’Oreal, and Cincinnati, Ohio-based Procter & Gamble. But analysts say a takeover would be a costly investment even for those large companies, and wouldn’t necessarily be a good fit. “We don’t believe it would make sense for Nestle to take over L’Oreal. They are two different businesses. In terms of the combination, we don’t see synergies that would explain” a takeover, said Claudia Lenz, analyst for Bank Vontobel in Zurich. If anything, she said, Nestle might be looking to dump its L’Oreal stake to focus on its food and beverage business. Procter & Gamble is a key rival to L’Oreal in the beauty products business — a market estimated at some $360 billion a year worldwide — and analysts said it could be eyeing a stake, though likely a minority one. Neither Nestle nor Procter & Gamble would comment on the speculation. Lenz said L’Oreal looks less
susceptible to takeover now than five years ago, when long-serving CEO Lindsay Owen-Jones announced he would step down. Owen-Jones helped transform the company from a France-focused company into an international powerhouse, pushing into Asia and farther into the United States. The Bettencourt women have been estranged for years, all because of a celebrity photographer with a charming smile. The daughter accuses photographer FrancoisMar ie Banier of abusing her mother’s alleged mental frailty — and bilking the elder heiress out of 1 billion euros in cash, artworks and other gifts. Francoise Bettencourt Meyers insists she does not covet the money — she already has billions of her own — but is heartsick to see her mother manipulated by those around her. The mother has defended the photographer and publicly questioned her daughter’s motives. Bettencourt’s lawyer describes the daughter as a “57-year-old little girl” seeking the attention of a mother more at ease in the company of a dandy photographer than her only child. The details of household conversations came out in secret recordings by Bettencourt’s ex-butler leaked last month, including one in

which the mother seems confused about whether or not she gave an island in the Seychelles to Banier as a gift. The company’s origins date to 1909, when Bettencourt’s chemist father, Eugene Schueller, invented a hair dye he named Aureale. After World War II, several L’Oreal executives Schueller hired were accused of Nazi sympathies. Liliane Bettencourt’s husband Andre wrote for a Nazi-controlled newspaper, “La Terre Francaise,” though later joined the underground Resistance. The family maintained close ties to the political elite, as Andre Bettencourt worked for Presidents Charles de Gaulle, Georges Pompidou and Francois Mitterrand. The current scandal includes accusations that Liliane Bettencourt’s financial adviser gave envelopes of cash illegally to the treasurer of Sarkozy’s conservative party months before his 2007 election. Sarkozy denies the claims and calls them a smear campaign. Liliane Bettencourt is Europe’s r i c h e s t w o m a n a c c o rd i n g t o Forbes, and one of France’s biggest taxpayers. In a statement last week, she raised concerns about the company’s future. “I hope my daughter will
not destabilize the group, which my father and I have wanted to be French,” she said. L’Oreal officials would not comment on the legal affairs or speculation about its future. Last week it reported a 13 percent rise in sales in the second quarter to euro4.95 billion after a slump last year linked to the global financial crisis. CEO Jean-Paul Agon isn’t showing public signs of worry. The sales figures “reassure us about our grand strategic choices, and allow us to face the second half with confidence,” he said. Currently the Bettencourt family owns 31 percent of the company, Nestle 30 percent, with the rest primarily held by institutional investors and small shareholders. When Liliane Bettencourt dies, a shareholder agreement stipulates that nothing can be done with the ownership balance for at least six months. After that, all eyes turn to her daughter. A published writer, Francoise Bettencourt Meyers leads a relatively private, quiet life with her husband and two sons, only one of whom is still in contact with his grandmother.

Tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers – oh, my! By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge This is the time of year I love. The tomatoes are ripe and full on the vine, the cucumbers can’t be picked fast enough and peppers of all kinds are coming out our ears. Whether you have a garden of your own or a favorite farmer ’s market, this is the time to enjoy the fruit of the harvest, literally! I f y o u a re h a v i n g t h e s a m e d i l e m m a I a m , a n d a re t r y i n g really hard to eat up as much of this great fresh garden fare before the abundance ends, here are some recipes to try to give some variety to your dinner table. Stuffed Green Peppers 6-8 large green peppers 1 lb ground beef 1/2 onion diced 1 bag shredded mozzarella 2 medium cans tomato sauce 2 cups rice Wash green peppers, cut off top and scoop out insides carefully w i t h o u t p o k i n g t h ro u g h t h e

pepper. Set aside. Cook rice as usual. Brown the ground beef and onion in a skillet, drain off grease and add tomato sauce (leaving some to cover bottom of cooking dish). Add cooked rice to meat mixture and stir together well. Place some mozzarella in bottom of green peppers and then spoon in meat mixture, packing down carefully until filled. Sprinkle mozzarella on top. Bake at 375°F in a covered roasting pan or baking dish with foil over top until green pepper is slightly soft. Olives may also be placed inside with meat mixture, if desired. Fresh Tomato and Cucumber Salad 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 1/2 teaspoon sea or kosher salt 3-4 cloves garlic, minced 10 fresh basil leaves 5 fresh oregano leaves 3 small fresh cucumbers (pickling or thin slicing) 2 large beefsteak tomatoes, vine ripened Mince garlic or press through a garlic press. Let garlic stand in balsamic and wine vinegars for 10 minutes (this takes the “edge” off). Discard any garlic which has green sprouts in the center, as the flavor is too sharp and bitter for this salad - use for another purpose. Wash basil and oregano leaves (pick at noon time on a sunny day for best flavor). Roll up leaves and slice into little strips (chiffonade). Chop and add to your best olive oil and allow to stand in oil while garlic marinates. Meanwhile, prepare salad ingredients. Wash cucumbers and tomatoes. Peel cucumbers, leaving a scant amount of peel (helps with digestion). Slice cucumbers into 1/4 inch coins (circles). With a sharp knife, remove stem and blossom end from tomatoes (a very small amount). Slice tomatoes into wedges, being careful not to crush and lose juice. Place tomatoes and cucumbers in salad bowl and sprinkle with sea salt or kosher salt. Combine olive oil with vinegars, whisking together well. Use to dress tomatoes and cucumbers; serve at room temperature. Variations: Add one thinly sliced red onion, pitted oil cured black
olives and fresh mozzarella, sliced (or use the small bocconcini). Fresh Tomato Salad 3 garlic cloves 6-8 ripe tomatoes 4 tbsp. olive oil Salt to taste Italian seasoning to taste 1/4 c. water 6 fresh basil leaves, chopped Slice tomatoes. Add all ingredients and toss together. Chill two hours or longer. Enjoy! Makes four to five servings, a nice, fresh tasting salad. Fresh Roasted Red Peppers 6 large red bell peppers 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon chopped parsley salt and pepper, to taste brown paper bag 1 tsp sea salt or kosher salt Preheat broiler or grill. Cook the whole peppers over high heat until they have blackened spots and blisters and are tender. Place the peppers into a brown paper bag and roll up the top to seal, close to the peppers. Set aside until the peppers cool. When the peppers are cool, remove the skins. Slice the peppers open and scrape out the cores and seeds. Rinse under water quickly and dry well with paper towels. Cut into strips or halves. In a clean jar, combine salt, olive oil, garlic and parsley. Add peppers and store in refrigerator for up to three weeks.
Green Pepper Steak 1 pound beef round, * 1/4 cup soy sauce 1 clove garlic 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, ** 1/4 cup salad oil 1 cup green onion, sliced thin 1 cup red and green bell peppers, cut in 3/4” cubes 2 stalks celery, sliced thin 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1 cup water 2 tomato, cut into 2” chunks 8 ounces waterchestnuts, canned, sliced 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced With a very sharp knife cut beef across grain into thin strips, 1/8inch thick.

Dining Delights OK, we admit these are our opinions and you certainly should form your own, but it is nice to have a guide of places to eat when you are undecided or want to try something new or different. To send us a suggestion of a restaurant to try, e-mail theedge@ edwpub.net 54th Street Bar and Grill Edwardsville 4 stars Great menu selection, something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable and have not had a bad selection yet. Remember to get your frequent diner card stamped when ordering an entree so you can get one free when your card is full. Red Robin Edwardsville 2 1/2 stars The bottomless french fries are fantastic, but it basically is a pricey burger place. Service is not super speedy, but food was good and hot. Good group setting. Cold Stone Creamery Edwardsville 5 stars I really would give this more stars if we had them, but all we can give is five. I LOVE their ice cream concoctions, particularly the Cheesecake Fantasy or the Apple Pie A La Cold Stone. I really could put more selections here, but use your imagination!
but Bobby’s has a following in Madison County that most people know. Great custard, great carmel apples, lots of selections and more. Strawanna and the Bobby’s Turtle are some of the favorite selections. Carisillo’s Mexican Restaurant Collinsville 3 1/2 stars A great selection, similar to LaFonda. Good prices and endless chips and salsa. Service is quick and friendly. Not the fanciest, especially on the outside, but don’t judge a Mexican restaurant by its cover! St. Louis Bread Company Edwardsville/Collinsville 4 1/2 Stars OK m en , don’t scoff at the rating, but embrace it! Although men look at it as “chick food,” there is something for every taste on their menu. Fantastic soups, sandwiches, bakery items, coffees, teas, salads, and more. Great place to take a laptop or a book and just kick back and sip a cup of java. Bully’s Smokehouse Edwardsville 3 1/2 stars The food is good at Bully’s, but a little foo-foo for a barbecue place. The prices are a little more than typical barbecue fare. Good for business lunch or dinner and nice servings.
Red Apple Maryville 4 stars The Red Apple is another favorite of our family, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. There is a huge menu selection, including Italian, broasted chicken, gyros, sandwiches of all kinds, plate specials, fish selections – fried and broiled, and much more. Service is always impeccable and prices can’t be beat.
Pantera’s Pizza Edwardsville 2 1/2 stars Still some of the best pizza around, but the decor needs a bit of updating, along with the dinner ware. The buffet is good if they keep it full, but that can be an issue at times. You better put on your running shoes to get that hot selection before everyone else beats you to it!
La Fonda Edwardsville 3 1/2 stars Good food, good service. All you can eat chips and salsa are great complement to their abundant menu. Their rice and beans are excellent also.
El Maguey Mexican Restaurant Edwardsville 3 Stars Good chips and salsa start you off with a nice selection of dishes. Authentic Mexican dishes are delivered promptly to your table.
Bigelo’s Bistro Edwardsville 4 stars Great menu selection of gourmet sandwiches, soups, salads, pastas and more. Great downtown Edwardsville location where you are sure to see someone you know. Bobby’s Frozen Custard Maryville 5 stars Gosh, maybe we just like desserts,
August 5, 2010
Jimmy John’s Sandwich Shop Edwardsville 4 stars Where sandwiches are concerned, you can hardly beat a good Jimmy John’s. Their Bootlegger Club and The Big John are some of the favorites around here. Their cookies are great also, ask them to heat it up. They really are “freaky fast!”
3 stars Typical bar fare of appetizers, sandwiches, salads, and wraps round out Big Daddy’s menu. They offer specials on certain days that are a real value. Service can be a bit slow when they are busy. Northside Dairy Haven Edwardsville 4 stars This seasonal drive-in has been part of the Edwardsville landscape for nearly 50 years. Still famous for their Charco Burger, they also have an array of other sandwiches and barbecue plate specials. The prices cannot be beat! Fiona’s Family Restaurant Edwardsville 4 stars S p e c i a l s e a c h d a y, l o t s o f selections, great breakfast. Service i s f a s t a n d f o o d i s h o t . Ve r y friendly environment where you

Great dining a t m o s p h e re a n d l o t s o f g o o d Italian food and drink. Come hungry with loose fitting clothing. Bull and Bear Edwardsville 3 1/2 stars A sports bar and grill with that offers bar side and dining room seating. A selection of appetizers, sandwiches, steaks, baby back ribs, chicken, seafood, pizza, and a kid’s menu make it family friendly, yet a great hangout for friends. Buffalo Wild Wings
Edwardsville 2 1/2 stars If you like wings, this is a great place for you. Other selections of appetizers, sandwiches and mostly bar fare round out the menu. A little pricey for wings, but if you gotta havem’ you gotta havem’. Service is kind of a toss up. Has been good, has been slow. 47 Port Street Grill Ameristar Casino-St. Charles 5 stars This is a fantastic, fabulous steak house that is a great date night or special group night out. The steaks are perfect, the lobster delectable, the sea bass melts in your mouth, and the fresh pastries are world class. The ambiance is straight out of the “Rat Pack” scene. Amazing wine selections, but any drink available. Prices are a bit steep, but a memorable feast for that special occasion.
