On the Edge of the Weekend

September 19, 2013


Mather to open Arts & Issues Astrophysicist to discuss the history of the univerise By JULIA BIGGS Of The Edge Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist Dr. John C. Mather will kick-off the SIUE 2013-2014 Arts & Issues season at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 26. Mather will be speaking about “The History of the Universe from Beginning to End” as he shares his groundbreaking research. Mather's presentation is part of the Shaw Lecture series and will take place in the Morris University Center's Meridian Ballroom. Mather currently serves as senior astrophysicist in the Observational Cosmology Laboratory at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and senior project scientist for the James Webb Space Telescope. His research concentrates on infrared astronomy and cosmology. In 2006, Mather and George F. Smoot won the Nobel Prize in Physics for their findings supporting the Big Bang theory. Mather was Project Scientist for NASA’s Cosmic Background Explorer (COBE) satellite, which measured the spectrum (the color) of the heat radiation from the Big Bang. COBE discovered hot and cold spots in that radiation and hunted for the first objects that formed after the great explosion. During his presentation, Mather will “tell the story of how we got here, how the universe began with a Big Bang, how it could have produced an Earth where sentient beings can live, and how those beings are discovering their history.” In addition, Mather will explain Einstein’s biggest mistake, how Edwin Hubble discovered the expansion of the universe, how the COBE mission was built, and how the COBE data supports the Big Bang theory.

He will also show NASA’s plans for the next great telescope in space, the James Webb Space Telescope. Mather's public lecture abstract describes the James Webb Space Telescope as one that “will look even farther back in time than the Hubble Space Telescope, and will peer inside the dusty cocoons where stars and planets are being born today. It is capable of examining Earth-like planets around other stars using the transit technique, and future missions may find signs of life.” Dr. Jeffrey Sabby, SIUE Associate Professor of Physics and Chair of the Shaw Lecture Series, coordinated Mather's visit to the SIUE campus. Sabby also worked to bring Neil deGrasse Tyson, a world-renowned astrophysicist, to SIUE for an Arts & Issues presentation in 2011. Sabby said that when he became chair of the Shaw Lecture Series, he had changes in mind. “One of the ideas that I had was to try to transform it into a distinguished lecture series - have either big names or Nobel-laureates speak,” Sabby said. “We had great success with Tyson. He was a fantastic speaker.” Looking for his next potential Shaw Lecture Series speaker, Sabby said that Mather's name stood out above others. “He had worked on COBE, and then he won Nobel Prize in 2006 for his work on that,” Sabby noted. “And then the thing that really jumped out at me was that he was working on the James Webb Telescope, and he was the senior project scientist. And I was like, wow!” Sabby said that on a personal note for him, just having Mather come to the campus and talk about the James Webb Telescope was going to be a momentous occasion. “The James Webb Telescope is going to replace the Hubble telescope. The

For The Edge

Dr. John Mather Hubble has been in operation for 25 plus years and everyone knows what the Hubble is, and to be able to have the guy who is working on the replacement for it – which will probably be talked about for 25 years plus too when its launched in space - that is good for the

university – and for the students.” Mather will also be providing a technical talk for local scientists and engineers while he is in town as well as be a guest lecture in Sabby's astronomy class and at one of the university's physics classes. “He was gracious enough to volunteer

to actually teach students. That's going to be too cool for the kids,” Sabby said. “I mean, to have a Nobel-laureate come in and teach your class?” Sabby pointed out how very fortunate the SIUE students will be to have personal attention from such an important scientist in the U.S.'s history. “In my lifetime, I've probably met close to seven Nobel laureates. It's something that a lot of people don't get to do on a dayto-day basis. I've just been lucky because of what I'm in, but these students will be learning as he teaches their class,” Sabby said. Mather will also be attending a “meet and greet” for the students in the SIUE Physics Club. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to hear from a Nobelprize winning astrophysicist about the history of the universe from the Big Bang to the future as well as his first-hand descriptions of his research. This engagement is sponsored by the Shaw Memorial Fund. Tickets for Dr. Mather's “The History of the Universe from Beginning to End” as well as all of the 2013-14 season performances are on sale now.

City Buzz expands to Edwardsville Salon takes over The Hair Company's former location By JULIA BIGGS Of The Edge


ity Buzz Barber - Salon opened in Edwardsville last month. Owners John Deppen and Joseph Cook recently purchased the salon located at 1990 Troy Rd., formerly known as The Hair Company. It is their third metro east location. It offers their popular $10 hair cuts as well as numerous other services. Deppen has been in the hairstyling business since the early '90s. After completing his schooling in Belleville in 1991, he promptly headed to the Boca Raton, Fla., area where he trained and served as a hairstylist in high-end salons for 11 years. The son of an international equestrian rider, Deppen also has a love of horses. “Big horses” he noted. Like the ones ridden for Olympic equestrian events. While in Boca Raton working as a hairstylist in the afternoons, Deppen said he also worked in the mornings for “Olympic dressage riders. I got really into the training and the riding and owning horses – buying and selling,” Deppen said. After 11 years of working in Florida, Deppen said that he tired of the “hectic Boca lifestyle. We decided to make a little bit of a life change – you know since we were getting older,” Deppen noted. “We decided to come to Granite (City), and I brought my horses with me.” He was running the Town and Country Equestrian


On the Edge of the Weekend

Center in St. Louis when the owner sold the business. “We were all out of a job. We had about three months notice so I was like, “OK, I’m going back to hair full-time. I was only out of hair maybe two years at the most,” Deppen added. In 2004, Deppen opened City Buzz Barber - Salon in Granite City with co-owner and stylist Joseph Cook. “It did really well. It’s a perfect location – great parking and visibility – and it just boomed. We started out with three people and now we’re up to 15 stylists,” he said. As the Granite City location was thriving, Deppen bought a farm in Caseyville about five years ago. “It’s a little horse farm. I still do the horses in my off hours in the evenings,” he said. Traveling to and from his farm in Caseyville to the Granite City City Buzz location, Deppen said every day he’d pass “this little hair salon” called Harry’s Hair Business. “It’s about 1,000 square feet,” Deppen explained. “It was for rent, and I’m like, 'We need one (another salon) right there.' It’s like two minutes from my home.” November will mark the fourth anniversary of the opening of Deppen and Cook’s second City Buzz Barber – Salon, which opened in the space that Harry’s Hair Business previously operated in in Caseyville. Then a little over a month ago, Deppen said laughing, that he was thinking, “You know what we need? Another one (salon). We happened to fall upon this (the Edwardsville location) and it kind of worked out.” City Buzz Barber - Salon opened at its Troy Rd. location in Edwardsville a little over a month ago.

September 19, 2013

Deppen pointed out that a lot of what makes City Buzz unique is that they have a “big push for walkins.” “You can make an appointment but we really focus on the walk-ins. It’s convenient. You can make an appointment if you want to or just walk on in,” he said. The Granite City location has about 800 clients per week. “They know when they come in you can ask for a specific person and you can wait for that person or just take the next available,” Deppen explained. “We’re very effective and efficient in what we do. I make sure of that. I train them.” Another unique feature to the salon is that it’s also heavy in barbering. “It is a barbering salon so it’s not like a traditional barbering – its salon barbering,” Deppen pointed out. “I have a lot of military people I do. I do a lot of flat tops. A lot of military skin fades. I also do a lot of women – a lot of swing bobs.” City Buzz provides children’s haircuts as well as women’s full color and eyebrow waxing. “We’re full service. We do everything from the neck up, and Tisha is amazing at up-dos. She’s amazing.” Deppen emphasized. “Mechelle has been here since before we bought it. She’s really good too. Her hair colors are on.” City Buzz Barber - Salon is open Mondays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. They will eventually be open on Sundays as well. “It’s just finding staff and getting things going in the beginning,” Deppen said. Hours will be extended as the business picks up. Stop by City Buzz Barber - Salon at 1990 Troy Rd. or call 692-1122.

People In Holiday Shores, they're not all firemen By LAURA SCATURRO Of The Edge When the call goes out to the Holiday Shores Fire Department and they are dispatched to an emergency, there’s a good chance that one of the firefighters arriving on scene will be a female. Of the 26 members on the roster, five are females – the highest percentage in the department’s 36 year history. Ann Clark, RayeLynn Kidwell, Jane Langendorf, Jessica McConnell and Patti McDaniel joined the department for their own personal reasons, but the women all share the same general sentiment -- they enjoy helping others and are dedicated to the profession. Steve Cooper, Holiday Shores Fire Chief, believes the gender diversity of the roster is an asset. “This is the most females we have had at any one time – although we have always had a diverse department with several females serving in the past,” Cooper said. “There are no specific considerations given to females although we work with all members if there are limitations with strength, endurance or even things like claustrophobia or other issues.” Ann Clark, an EMT, has been with the department nearly four years. A life-changing experience as a youngster, along with a more recent house fire tragedy in her personal life, brought her to the fire house to sign up and give back to the vocation. “When I was 13 my father died from a massive heart attack,” she said. “I tried doing CPR, but was unsuccessful.  We lived in Prairietown’s district and they came to help.  I will always be thankful to the men that tried to help that morning– especially Mike Schaefer and others from the department, who stayed with my brother, who was 3 at the time, and myself until family could get there.  That experience made me want to give back.  As an adult, I had talked about joining for a while, but I kept putting it off.  Then about five years ago my aunt died in a house fire.  I guess that experience gave me the push to join.”  Clark and her female colleagues agree, the work and training can be hard physically, but they do what they can. They know that they are not as strong as the males, but the women’s determination along with the support they receive from their male colleagues, brings them together as a team. Clark, who enjoys water and ice rescue, knows her weaknesses. “I hate heights, but I’ve been on a roof and a shaky ladder more than enough,” she said. “I just do it and try not to think about it.” Rayelynn Kidwell, age 20, is no stranger to the Holiday Shores firehouse. Her father, Ray, has been a member of the department for 15 years. “I received my EMT license over a year ago at Lewis & Clark,” she said. “Being here has been part of my life for so long I was just compelled to do it. They’re my family and they always have been. The day I walked in the door and submitted my application I had their respect from everyone because they trust me. Anyone would have my back as I would them.” Kidwell stands at 4-feet, 11-inches, and has been with the department for one year. In September, she will be receiving some size-appropriate

Below, Patti McDaniel has been with the Holiday Shores Fire Department for 10 years. Here McDaniel checks the oxygen tanks and other emergency medical equipment that is used on emergency calls. gear. “It’s made to fit me better and that will be safer for me,” she said. “There is not a lot of 4-foot, 11 firefighters around.” Kidwell said she gets excited every time her pager goes off. “Joining the department has opened my eyes to the real world and suffering,” she said. “But there is a lot of hugs and smiles, too. Once there was a young boy involved in a car accident and he was so happy to see a small person like him. It gave me an advantage.” Chief Cooper added, “On some medical calls, there is a comfort of a female patient to see a female EMT. Also, women seem to handle adrenalin a bit better than men - so when a large event is taking place there is often a calming effect that comes from having a diverse work group.” Jane Langendorf, who is employed at Phillips 66 in Wood

River, has been involved in emergency response since 1998 when she joined the medical response team. An industrial firefighter, she has since expanded her certifications to include hazmat and rope rescue at the refinery and is certified as a firefighter II through the state of Illinois. “I found out I really enjoyed it at the refinery,” she said. “My favorite team is hazmat. After getting all the training I received at work I thought I could help my community out. ” Langendorf, now age 54, first joined the Prairietown Fire Department district and served for five years. She moved to Holiday Shores in 2010 and has been with Holiday Shores Fire Department since. The grandmother of six said, “We’re all firefighters, there is no gender on scene.”  Jessica McConnell is also approaching her one year

anniversary with the department and like Kidwell, is not a stranger to the fire house. McConnell’s father, Lt. Corey McConnell, was with the department for 15 years until his passing in 2010, after his battle with cancer. My dad was a firefighter for a long time and I’ve always wanted to do it,” she said. “One day I came up here and started training. I’m doing what I can and I feel like I’m learning a lot. Everyone is from a different background with different occupations, so everyone teaches you a different way but it all comes down to the same process. It’s like a family here. I’ve been around half of these guys my entire life. I think my dad would be proud of me. As long as I live out here in Holiday Shores I will do it. ” McConnell, a master’s student at Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., fills in her available time over the summer and semester breaks with fire training and wasn’t spared a moment after signing up to serve the department. During her first week of training she was able to assist as a candidate with a house fire, giving her a jump start on her training. Of the five current female members, Patti McDaniel will celebrate 10 years with the department in November. McDaniel, an Illinois State police officer for 25 years and who retired in 2010, has been around first responders her entire life. Her older brother was a Madison County deputy involved in arson investigation while her younger brother was a volunteer fireman in Colorado. Her father served as a constable at one time while living in Tennessee. It was after McDaniel attended a Mazone’s arson investigator’s conference in the 1980s that her interest in fire fighting was sparked.  Unfortunately, in the community where she resided at the time, there was no opportunity to be a part of

September 19, 2013

the fire department. In 2002, she moved within the boundaries of the Holiday Shores Fire District and she has been with the department since. “The brotherhood aspect is very strong in each profession, but different,” she said. “Both also have inherent danger, but here the elements play a role. I’ll keep doing this until I think I’m a liability.  There are other jobs that go on during a fire so you don’t have to be the one going in. Radio is essential, they call the utilities and other support contacts – they’re the link. It’s an important job. There are the tenders who get the water and fill the tank and bring it back. You’re not actually in the fire but you’re providing a service. Although you have to take the training, there are so many other things you can do.” McDaniel, who also stands at 4-feet, 11-inches has been an EMT since 1978. She said that she’s been involved in other organizations but this is by far the most rewarding. “We’re providing a service,” she said. “Stretch yourself – you’d be surprised at what you can do.” Three of the five women are Emergency Medical Technicians and one is classified as a first responder. Cooper said, “Having females on the department is sometimes humbling. When a ‘strong man’ is outworked by a female it causes everyone to take a moment to reflect. Often times, there is greater patience exhibited by the females so they can accomplish a job just as well – working in a different manner.” The Holiday Shores Fire Department recently conducted a membership drive as an effort to expand membership roles. Although no females inquired about the department, six males expressed interest and two have begun the membership process. To learn more about opportunities at the Holiday Shores Fire Department, contact Steve Cooper at 656-6673.

People People planner Missouri Botanical Garden hosts Terra Circus exhibit Join the Garden in welcoming the work of acclaimed p h o t o g r a p h e r, C a re n A l p e r t t o t h e M i s s o u r i B o t a n i c a l G a rd e n September 6 through November 22 for her exhibit entitled “terra cibus.” The San Francisco-based fine art and commercial photographer combines her love for photography, food and art in photos taken with an electron microscope. Alpert captures the microscopic, almost other-worldly surfaces of common foods such as Oreo cookies, shrimp, leaves and candy, turning what might normally be a scientific endeavor into fine art. Caren Alpert's Pineapple Leaf “Photographs taken with electron microscopes have seized my interest because of their mystery and simultaneous familiarity. This medium deconstructs, abstracts, and reveals the ordinary in a riveting way. The closer the lens got, the more I saw food - and consumers of food - as part of a larger eco-system,” stated Alpert. The exhibit assists in bringing attention to the International Year of Food and the Garden’s “Foodology: Dig In” theme for 2013. The “terra cibus” exhibit will be shown in Monsanto Hall of the Ridgway Center and is included with Missouri Botanical Garden admission of $8 for adults and free for children ages 12 and under. S t. Louis City and County residents enjoy discounted admission of $4 and free admission on most Wednesday and Saturday mornings until noon. Missouri Botanical Garden members are free.

The club continues its series of talks about space and all its wonders at the Belleville Campus, 2500 Carlyle Ave. All meetings will be held in the Main Complex, Room 1360, at 7 p.m. A viewing session will take place after each meeting, weather permitting. The schedule of events for fall 2013 is as follows: • Hubble Space Telescope is Thursday, Sept. 19. The Hubble Te l e s c o p e h a s p ro v i d e d s o m e of the most marvelous pictures of astronomy. This meeting will describe the inner workings of the Hubble - which was designed to be repaired when needed and its wonderful pictures. T h e s e i m a g e s a re d u e t o t h e lack of atmosphere in orbit and the amazing repair work of the shuttle astronauts. • Exoplanets is Thursday, Oct. 10. Stars provide the energy for life to exist on Earth, as well as exo p l a n e t s . T h i s m e e t i n g w i l l describe the conditions for a “Goldilocks Zone” to exist and the possible characteristics of the exoplanets. As more exoplanets are discovered, the ones in the “Goldilocks Zone” will be the major candidates for life. • Luna, Our Moon, and Others is Tuesday, Oct. 29. Some people may be considered lunatics, while others are just plain geocentric. This meeting will l o o k a t h o w h u m a n s e x p l o re space to find the next home and the search for life on a satellite. Learn about the last visit to Luna in 1972 by Eugene Cernan, an astronaut trained in geology, and Harrison Schmidt, a professional geologist. Hear about plans to re t u r n t o L u n a t o e s t a b l i s h a base. • International Space Station is Tuesday, Nov. 19. Humans have made space the final frontier. This meeting will discuss the thrills, chills and shrills of being in space. The rigors of space have mostly become routine thanks to international cooperation; however, Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano found that life in

space can be full of hazards. • Mars Exploration is Tuesday, Dec. 3. Humans have built a space station and have an itching to explore and colonize space. This meeting will describe the next place we may call home, our nearest superior planet, Mars, and the robotic explorers sent there. Discover plans to send humans to Mars in the next few decades and the need to first explore the surface for water – a necessity of life. Learn about the two active rovers, Curiosity and Opportunity, which are currently exploring different parts of Mars in search of water and life. The sessions are free and open to the public.

Religion State focuses on church involvement with vets AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — As veterans return home from Iraq, Afghanistan and other troubled places, many will seek help from spiritual leaders — and those leaders must be ready to help, multiple speakers said Thursday at a conference in Auburn. About 170 church representatives and other members of faith-based groups attended the Alabama Veterans We l l - B e i n g M i n i s t r y C o n f e re n c e , a i m e d a t g e t t i n g churches and other religious groups more involved with helping veterans. Douglas L. Carver, retired Army chief of chaplains, said about 40 percent of veterans with mental issues seek help from spiritual leaders, and faith groups need to know how to help. Carver said veterans can face numerous problems, adding that an average of 22 veterans commit suicide each day. He said he hopes the faith-based leaders will help show returning veterans there are better ways than suicide to deal with their issues. "We are trying to help bring them back from chaos to normalcy," Carver said. He said soldiers are trained that talking to a minister is "a safe place to go." He urged the faith-based leaders

to provide that safe haven. Dave Riley of Semmes was in the U.S. Coast Guard when he lost his hands and legs as the result of an illness suffered after his work as a rescue diver. He said his faith was not strong when he went into t h e m i l i t a r y, b u t f a i t h h a s d o n e m u c h t o h e l p h i m recover. Riley is the Alabama commander of the Disabled American Veterans and was the first Coast Guardsman to be awarded the DAV's Outstanding Disabled Veteran of the Year Award. The award recognized Riley's outstanding achievements that include his community service, Coast Guard Auxiliary membership and athletic activities. H e s a i d h e f a c e d m a n y d i ff i c u l t i e s d e a l i n g w i t h his disabilities and was helped by his wife and three children. "Without my wife I wouldn't be here today," Riley said. He said he was also helped by attending a faithbased conference in Colorado. Riley said his faith has also helped him work with returning veterans as they deal with their problems. "I use my faith to listen with love," Riley said. "I think

it's very important to have somebody who cares." The conference included sessions for pastors and others on post-traumatic stress disorder and recognizing warning signs of potential suicide. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley opened the conference by telling the faith-based leaders that many of the returning veterans would turn to their pastors and other faith-based leaders when seeking assistance. He said some of the returning veterans will face homelessness, joblessness or other problems. Jon Mason of Serve Alabama pointed out that re t u r n i n g v e t e r a n s c o m e e v e r y c o u n t y i n A l a b a m a . The state has more than 20,000 veterans who are in the process of returning home. Karen McNealy-Boswell, suicide prevention coordinator for the Central Alabama Veterans Health C a re S y s t e m , t o l d t h e c o n f e re n c e t h a t s u i c i d e i s a critical issue facing returning veterans, but it said it doesn't have to be that way. "Most people don't want to die. They want their problems to end," McNealy-Boswell said. The conference was a joint project of state agencies including the governor's office and private organizations.

QuickGlance Movie Reviews

"The World's End"

Sci-fi movies, we all know, create unlikely heroes, and this summer’s no exception. Remember Brad Pitt as a U.N. inspector in “World War Z”? He just wanted to hang at home with his family, but he had to save the world from raging zombies. And Matt Damon in “Elysium”? He played a reformed car thief who just wanted to heal himself — and suddenly, he needed to rescue the planet. But Simon Pegg in “The World’s End,” the latest work of brilliant inanity from director Edgar Wright, takes this whole reluctant-savior-of-humanity thing to a new plane. Twenty years after high school, Pegg’s scruffy, unshaven, never-gonnagrow-up, substance-abusing Gary can’t hold down a job. His idea of a relationship is a quick tryst in the loo of a pub. This is a guy who’s gonna save us — or at least, parts of suburban England — from an alien invasion? Lord help us. Of course, if you’re a fan of Pegg’s earlier two films with Wright, the 2004 “Shaun of the Dead” and the 2007 “Hot Fuzz,” you’ll know that such plot absurdities are not only par for the course, but crucial to the delightful sensibilities of this genre-twisting oeuvre. Wright has called this movie the last in a trilogy, and what unites the three is that each is a sendup — though a loving one — of a genre: “Shaun” is a zombie film, “Hot Fuzz” a buddy cop movie, and “The World’s End” one of those bittersweet coming-home films that show how difficult it is to really, well, go home. Because it’s never the same. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “pervasive language including sexual references.” RUNNING TIME: 109 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

"You're Next"

“You’re Next” is a nasty little slasher film that starts poorly but gets better once most of the cast has been butchered. Indie film figures Joe Swanberg and Ti West play two attendees at a party where four siblings and their significant others are celebrating their parents’ 35th wedding anniversary. Most tolerable among this largely annoying crew are Crispian (A.J. Bowen), a college prof, and his Australian girlfriend Erin (Sharni Vinson), but that’s not paying the two very high praise. The irritation factor grows substantially after the first slaying at this remote Tudor mansion, when half the female cast seems to be competing to shriek the longest. An unknown number of men, wearing animal masks and wielding crossbows (why not guns?), are stalking the family from without and within the house; since director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett have given themselves so many characters to kill, they start off with a few quick killings in which the victims are behaving so stupidly they’re practically asking to die. Most frustrating during the film’s first half is that only one among the 10 characters, Erin, has anything approaching a self-preservation instinct. While others scream or stand around dumbly, she hustles off to lock windows and gather weapons. While the mask-wearing villains have a hard time delivering the kind of novel slayings horror fans demand, Vinson musters the ferocity to compensate — the moment she meat-tenderizes an attacker’s skull, the movie starts to turn fun. In the absence of sympathetic characters, a little humor would have gone a long way here. But aside from a near-miss sex scene in a bed shared by a corpse, there’s practically none on hand. Only when the reasons for the attack become clear does the movie find its feet, but “You’re Next” ends on a high enough note that buzz on the way out of the theater should work in its favor. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “strong bloody violence, language and some sexuality/nudity.”

“Mortal Instruments: City of Bones”

A young adult fiction binge has broken out in “Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.” Like an 80-car pill-up, all of the current tropes of teenage fantasy here careen into one another: the young heroine with previously unknown powers; the gothic mix of heavenly and hellish supernatural creatures; the breathless romance with a young Brit of angelic cheekbones. And, oh, the tattoos. It’s an overdose of mysticism, concocted to give devoted young fans their fix: a heartthrob to swoon over and grand battles to match inflated teenage emotions. The film is based on the first in a series of popular young adult novels by Cassandra Clare, whose writing originated in “Harry Potter” fan fiction. It’s a blatant inspiration to “City of Bones,” the first of a planned franchise, as is (if you haven’t already guessed) “Twilight.” Like a hand bag bought on a New York street, this is the knockoff version. Lily Collins stars as Clary, a teen who discovers that her mother (Lena Headey) is secretly a Shadowhunter, a hunter of demons. At the same time as her mom is kidnapped, Clary, a bright redhead, realizes she’s able to see a hidden world in their native New York, one where Shadowhunters, demons, werewolves and warlocks stealthily operate in varying degrees of gothic drab, invisible to humans, or “mundanes.” It’s a lot like a mediocre episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “intense sequences of fantasy violence and action, and some suggestive content.” RUNNING TIME: 130 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.

"Closed Circuit"

We’re all being watched. All the time. That’s a key message of “Closed Circuit,” an entertaining and well-crafted if not overly heart-stopping British conspiracy thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. Security cameras are everywhere, giving us birds-eye glimpses of each character, and reminding us that we, too, are never really alone. Such a concept is hardly shocking in 2013. After all, we write an email, and soon an ad pops up telling us where to buy that thing we sort of mentioned. And of course we’ve learned in recent months not only of secret government surveillance but even the “Boyfriend Tracker” app for our phones. Perhaps we really do live in a post-privacy era. But if it’s not a shocking concept, the makers of “Closed Circuit,” an intelligent film directed by John Crowley, have certainly shown how creepy it can be. In the London we see here — one of the most watched places in the world, we learn, in terms of security cameras — you never know who’s around the corner, or who’s been in your apartment, leaving a book slightly askew on your shelf. You don’t know who that cab driver or dinner-party companion truly is. You don’t even know which side your closest colleagues are on. At least, such is life for Martin Rose (Bana) and Claudia Simmons-Howe (Hall), two lawyers who become ensnared in the legal case surrounding a horrific terror attack, the bombing of a bustling London food market. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “language and brief violence.” RUNNING TIME: 96 minutes.

“Reclusive.” Is that an adjective, or is it actually part of J.D. Salinger’s name? The word has been used so often to describe the famous writer, one could be forgiven for thinking it appears on his birth certificate. But there’s obviously much more to the story of “reclusive author J.D. Salinger” than the way he withdrew from public view and publishing and spent much of his life in Cornish, N.H., where he was frequently pursued by avid fans. One of the more entertaining tidbits in “Salinger,” the exhaustive, exhausting and overly hyped new documentary by Shane Salerno, is the account of one of those fans, who made the pilgrimage and clearly felt he was owed more time than he was granted. “I’m not a counselor,” Salinger said, finally. “I’m a fiction writer.” It would have been enough if “Salinger” had merely explored that one idea: How much did this writer, after capturing the world’s attention with “The Catcher in the Rye,” owe us? Did he owe us a sequel, a novel every few years, or his presence on talk shows, with opinions on the issues of the day? Did he “owe” us more than he gave, before his death in 2010 at the age of 91? It seems many felt that way. But Salerno, until now best known as a screenwriter for “Armageddon” and “Savages,” spent nearly a decade researching Salinger for this project, which includes a 700-page book and a TV documentary. And he had enough material, clearly, for five different films: “Salinger and his Wartime Past,” “for example. “Salinger and his Women.” “Salinger and His Struggles With Fame.” Instead, he took a kitchensink approach, and while the film moves quickly for its 120 minutes, that approach blunts its impact. RATED: PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for “disturbing war images, thematic elements and smoking.” RUNNING TIME: 120 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four..


LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Mad Men” meets “The Artist” in “Populaire,” a superbly crafted, finely acted but somewhat shallow retro rom-com about a young French secretary who, with the help of her highly persuasive boss, hammers her way to becoming one of the fastest typists on the planet. This impressive debut feature from writer-director Regis Roinsard is boosted by terrific lead turns from Romain Duris and Deborah Francois (“The Page Turner”), as well as some stunning old-school cinematography from Guillaume Schiffman of “The Artist.” Still, there’s something formulaic and all too overtly crowd-pleasing about this sepia-toned tale of female empowerment and lost love, making for a rather soulless affair. Set in the rain-swept towns of Lower Normandy in 1958, the film makes its throwback status heard loud and clear from the get-go, with opening credits (directed by Alexandre Courtes, “Asylum Blackout”) straight out of a Billy Wilder movie and decors and a color palette that would please the likes of both Alfred Hitchcock and “Mad Men’s” Matthew Weiner. Indeed, it’s easy to spend most of the movie simply gawking at the sets (by Sylvie Olive) and costumes (by Charlotte David), so Roinsard, along with co-writers Daniel Presley and Romain Compingt, deserves credit for weaving an amusing intrigue that never lets up until the closing half-hour, when his premise starts to grow old. RATED: R by the Motion Picture Association of America for “a scene of sexuality.” RUNNING TIME: 111 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: No ranking.

"Populaire" harkens back to '50s films By JORDAN MINTZER The Hollywood Reporter LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Mad Men” meets “The Artist” in “Populaire,” a superbly crafted, finely acted but somewhat shallow retro romcom about a young French secretary who, with the help of her highly persuasive boss, hammers her way to becoming one of the fastest typists on the planet. This impressive debut feature from writerdirector Regis Roinsard is boosted by terrific lead turns from Romain Duris and Deborah Francois (“The Page Turner”), as well as some stunning old-school cinematography from Guillaume Schiffman of “The Artist.” Still,

there’s something formulaic and all too overtly crowd-pleasing about this sepia-toned tale of female empowerment and lost love, making for a rather soulless affair. Set in the rain-swept towns of Lower Normandy in 1958, the film makes its throwback status heard loud and clear from the get-go, with opening credits (directed by Alexandre Courtes, “Asylum Blackout”) straight out of a Billy Wilder movie and decors and a color palette that would please the likes of both Alfred Hitchcock and “Mad Men’s” Matthew Weiner. Indeed, it’s easy to spend most of the movie simply gawking at the sets (by Sylvie Olive) and costumes (by Charlotte David), so Roinsard, along with co-writers

Daniel Presley and Romain Compingt, deserves credit for weaving an amusing intrigue that never lets up until the closing half-hour, when his premise starts to grow old. A quick intro presents small-town gal Rose Pamphyle (Francois, channeling the feistier side of Grace Kelly), who works at her dad’s local grocery store but longs for a better life. She thus decides to apply for a secretarial position at a neighboring insurance office run by the sleek, fast-talking Louis Echard (Duris, sharp and sprightly), who’s impressed by both her superhuman typing skills and killer looks. Before long, he takes Rose under his wing as his protegee, training her for a regional secretary competition and moving her into

his country mansion, where she’s swept into a daily regimen of extreme typewriting and unrequited romance. The bond the two form is not unlike that of Don Draper and Peggy Olson — hairstyles and smoking habits included — and Rose’s climb to a higher social status is reminiscent of Peggy’s evolution from clerk to copywriter. The difference here is that while the “Mad Men” duo ultimately transforms into a surrogate father-daughter team, the two Frenchies clearly have the hots for each other. Yet Louis is incapable of closing the deal, blocked by an enduring affection for his childhood sweetheart (Berenice Bejo) and memories of serving in the French Resistance during WWII.

Diesel shines in "Riddick" By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge It initially appeared to me that this week would be fraught with nothing but aborted attempts at seeing a movie to review. I sat in on "The Getaway," one of the notorious box office bombs of the year, for a full hour Friday evening before I gave up in a f i t o f a p a t h y. E t h a n H a w k e and Selena Gomez were tearing around the Bulgarian capital at the whim of a madman who was monitoring their wired Shelby Cobra Mustang. It just felt like the level of motivation (Hawke's character's kidnapped wife) wasn't enough to sit through the needless mayhem. On Monday, I attempted to see the funny S p a n i s h - l a n g u a g e d r a m e d y,

Instructions Not Included, but w a s s i d e l ined by a bad batch of Queso dip before I checked out early. Indications are that I would have to return to catch the final act of that one. Instead, I had to make a deliberate trip to a theatre I don't necessarily care for the very morning this column is due in order to see the one film that I had consciously sought to avoid these last five d a y s : " R i d d i c k . " Tu r n s o u t , while the science fiction thriller has nothing new to offer, it still makes for a fine way to waste a pair of action-packed hours. Vin Diesel sure knows how to pick his projects and I hear his Twitter feed is pretty spectacular. As Richard Riddick, the m e rc e n a r y / c r i m i n a l / s o l d i e r / king, Diesel is the face of the franchise directed by David

Twohy that began back in 2000 with Pitch Black. That film was a refreshing and fun experience, as I recall, but one that was thwarted by the 2004 sequel debacle, The Chronicles of Riddick. By taking away the survivalist baddie side of Riddick and turning him i n t o a p o l i t i c a l f i g u re / e n e m y of the state, Chronicles put a stamp on the series that turned toward animated follow-ups and videogame platforms before Diesel himself financed this year's installment based on the sizable clout and salary he had accrued from the Fast & Furious properties that are still going strong. But now we're back on track. Riddick opens with our a n t i h e ro g r a v e l y i n j u re d a n d stranded on a desolate world by the very minions that had

appointed him lord marshal of his adopted home world. Instead, he's trapped on deserted rock filled with wild wolf-like c re a t u re s ( i n c l u d i n g o n e p u p he trains to be his companion), d a n g e ro u s w e a t h e r, a n d t i d e pools filled with highlypoisonous scorpion monsters t h e s i z e o f l a rg e t ru c k s . I t ' s Riddick's battles with these that are particularly fun as he slices and dices them with a hinged sword made of bone and jagged stone. When he stumbles across a trove of supplies left behind by bounty hunters, Riddick is a b l e t o u t i l i z e a n e m e rg e n c y beacon to lure competing teams of recovery agents bent on collecting his "doubled-if-dead" ransom. Led by the hotheaded Santana (Jordi Molla) and t h e t ro u b l e d f a t h e r o f o n e o f

Riddick's alleged victims (Matt Nable), and featuring sci-fi deity Katee Sackhoff (of TV's better B a t t l e s t a r G a l a c t i c a re m a k e ) , the teams of full of hardened men who have nothing to live or die for. They're soon lured into a cat & mouse gambit with Riddick who wants to escape in one of their ships. When the killer planet turns on all of them, though, the most dangerous man in the room might be the only hope any of them have to escape their circumstances that, of course, feature numerous opportunities for Riddick's night vision superpower to shine. "Riddick" runs 130 minutes and is rated R for strong violence, language, and some sexual content/ nudity. I give this film two and a half stars out of four.

Family Focus Washington University plans Assembly Series For The Edge Human health, human rights, technology, sustainability, diversity, the futu​re of our region and the legacies of war and slavery are issues that are front and center these days, in the media, in the courts, in Congress and closer to home, in the classrooms at Washington University in St. Louis. Several Assembly Series programs this fall will feature individuals — many WUSTL faculty — chosen for their thought leadership on these and other relevant subjects. Created 60 years ago, the Assembly Series is Washington University’s premiere lecture series. Its chief mission is to present interesting and important voices, and it is designed to spark meaningful discussion and lead to greater understanding of our world today. Assembly Series programs are free and open to the public.

Then, during the 1970s, scientific trailblazers such as Hall, Stephen Jay Gould and Gunther Wagner began to merge the two concepts. It was in this new field called evolutionary developmental biology (evo-devo) where breakthroughs occurred in understanding how body structures change — and advance — through evolution.

Wednesday, Oct. 16 Nawa Fariba Nawa “Afghanistan, Heroin and Women” 6 p.m., Umrath Lounge Afghanistan’s $65 billion a year opiate industry destroys thousands of lives each year by creating addicts, by killing the addicted, by violence associated with the drug trade, and in many other, less obvious ways. When AfghanAmerican journalist Nawa traveled back to her native land between 2000 and 2007, she was shocked by stories such as Darya’s, the 12-year-old daughter of a dealer sold into marriage with a middle-aged drug lord to pay off her father’s debt. On the other hand, she found that some women farmers were benefiting from the drug trade. These stories compelled her to write Opium Nation: Child Brides, Drug Lords and One Woman’s Journey through Afghanistan. Panel Discussion: Date to be announced “Aftershocks of the Afghanistan War: What's Next for Those Who Left and for Those Left Behind” As America’s longest-running war winds down, Afghanistan is coming back into focus. What lies ahead for this country and its people? What have the traumatic effects of war wrought on those who have left and who are left behind? The October 2013 edition of Washington Magazine will feature Nawa’s interviews with several WUSTL faculty and alumni, and the professors featured in the story will participate in a panel discussion. Friday, Oct. 25 Basij-Rasikh Shabana Basij-Rasikh Olin Fellowship Lecture 4 p.m., location to be announced “If we have to spill our blood to pay your school fees, then we will,” Basij-Rasikh’s father told her many years ago when she was illegally attending a secret school during the Taliban’s reign in Afghanistan.

education, great risks were taken, but she grew up in a family where education was prized and daughters were treasured. Now the graduate of Middlebury College provides educational opportunities for the next generation of girls through the School of Leadership, Afghanistan (SOLA) a boarding school she co-founded and runs, and through other global initiatives for women’s education. Friday, Nov. 1 Alexander Michelle Alexander “The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness” School of Law Public Interest Law Speaker Series Noon, Anheuser-Busch Hall, Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom Although Jim Crow laws institutionalizing segregation were overturned decades ago, Alexander ’s book, The New Jim Crow observes that it’s perfectly legal to discriminate against convicted criminals, a group predominantly made up of AfricanAmerican men. Today’s U.S. criminal justice system has relegated millions to permanent second-class status, effectively creating the same racial caste system as Jim Crow, as felons are denied basic civil and human rights long after they are released. Co-sponsored by the Missouri History Museum and the School of Law. (On the book: http://newjimcrow. com) Tuesday, Nov. 5 Sarah Wagner “Srebrenica’s Legacies of Loss and Remembrance” Holocaust Memorial Lecture 6 p.m., Umrath Lounge Wagner In her book, To Know Where He Lies: DNA Technology and the Search for Srebrenica’s Missing, anthropologist Wagner tells the story of the 1995 massacre in Srebrenica, when 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were killed and their bodies dumped into mass graves. Loved ones had little hope of identifying physical remains until the advent of DNA technology that resulted in more than 6,000 victims identified. Their remains are now interred in a memorial site that marks the worst atrocity in European history since World War II. (See a news update.) Wednesday, Nov. 6 Panel Discussion: “The Future of the St. Louis Region” Clayton Centennial Celebration 7 p.m., Simon Hall May Auditorium The St. Louis region has much to offer, but what about its future — a future tied closely to Washington University’s? To celebrate the centennial anniversary of Clayton’s founding, experts will offer their thoughts on how our region will fare in the future. They include WUSTL provost Holden Thorp, PhD, who will address education, and plant conservationist Peter Raven, PhD, who will explore environmental sustainability. A third panelist to discuss medicine and health care will be announced on the Assembly Series website. Thursday, Nov. 14 MacKinnon Catharine MacKinnon “Trafficking, Prostitution, and Inequality” School of Law Public Interest Speaker Series Noon, Anheuser-Busch Hall, Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom Perhaps no one person has changed the legal landscape of sex equality in the United States more than MacKinnon. She pioneered the concept that sexual abuse violates equality rights, as well as the legal claim that sexual harassment is sex discrimination. In the international arena, she represented Bosnian survivors of sexual atrocities, winning legal recognition of rape as an act of genocide and a $745 million settlement. Co-sponsors: Law, Identity & Culture Initiative in the School of Law; the Brown School; Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies, in Arts & Sciences; Association of Women Faculty; and the Office of the Provost (Here is MacKinnon on the film Lovelace.)

Family Focus For The Edge


ree entertainment, fall crafts and merchandise, food vendors, a free petting zoo, a new “sound wall”; children’s games, and Chamber member participation will be highlights of the Coal Country Chamber of Commerce 15th annual Fall Festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September 28, at the Benld City Park. The Eighth Annual Tour de Coal bike ride will also be run in conjunction with the festival starting with a 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. registration at the Benld City Hall. Bicycling devotees from many parts of Illinois, Missouri and other states have preregistered for the bike ride from which they may choose the 15, 30 or 66 mile route. Registration is also allowed on the day of the race. While the festival officially opens at 10 a.m. the free entertainment starts at 8:00 with Joe Powell serenading the many crafters, food vendors, and local business people who are setting up their booths. Powell’s performance is available to anyone who wants to sit in the entertainment pavilion and enjoy the peaceful early morning. Mr. Powell sings ballads and country songs and has a great whistling program. Dancing is encouraged all times at the pavilion where the stage is! At 10:00 until 11:30 a.m., the Heartland Band features classic and modern country music for dancing and listening pleasure. The Heartland Band features local artists Rick Thacker, Merry and Mel Davis, Todd Davis, and Chip Berger. The ever popular Southern Blend will play from 11:30 until 1 p.m. Southern Blend band is made up of Roger DeWitt, Phil Grove, Bill Heyen, John Lanzerotte, and Kevin Busby. They have been playing together for four years now. Southern Blend plays a mixture of country, rock, and a little rock & roll. Steve Davis in “Memories of Elvis” with his friends Anna Blair as Patsy Cline and Thomas Hickey as Buddy Holly will be the afternoon’s entertainment from 1 to 4 p.m. These three artists bring us the sounds of the 50’s and the 60’s when these classic entertainers brought rock and roll to millions. Davis, who is well known to the audiences in the CCCC area, does a performance that is the result of exhaustive research to give the Elvis fan an authentic experience. Anna Blair brings enthusiasm to her role as Patsy Cline, and Thomas Hickey brings the songs and sound of the beloved Buddy Holly to our stage. “That is 8 hours of first class entertainment that is free for all who choose to take part,” said Mickey Robinson, CCCC Executive Director. “We are trying to fulfill the Chamber goal of bringing people from outside the local Community District 7 area to our event that is family oriented and designed to be inexpensive fun for all ages.” Robinson said visitors who attend the Fall Festival should

Another popular animal show is the Reptile Show shared with the Festival by Dr. Richard Crowell of the Biology Department of Blackburn College.

new feature this year. “You have to see this thing and hear it to believe” a sound wall where children can be the musicians as they beat on various pipes, a variety of pots and pans, and assorted other things. One of the favorite offerings for families is the free rides on the Coal Country Choo Choo which will be running through and around the park all day. The train, which was originally built by Robert Lewis of Illinois Valley and maintained over the years and for the last few years by Rick Konneker, is sponsored by Chamber members whose plaques are displayed on the train. An expanded and new service for children and their parents is brought to the Fall Festival this year with the cooperation of the Masons of Southern Illinois that includes the chapters in Gillespie and Hillsboro and the MacoupinMontgomery Counties Crime Stoppers. The Masons will be offering fingerprinting, a digital photo, a video, and DNA sampling of each child in case that child is lost or abducted. All materials will be given immediately to the parents of each child for their safekeeping. The Crime Stoppers volunteers will also share information with families and will have give-aways for the children. A traditional part of this Festival is the Craft area where this year will again be over 65 vendors with a wide variety of products to be purchased. Decorations and gifts that are appropriate for fall and the upcoming holiday seasons will brighten the day with color and design. Yard ornaments, pet items, knick knacks, Halloween, Christmas and Thanksgiving

Health care related groups will take part in the Health Fair which is organized by Community Memorial Hospital of Staunton. The Health Fair will offer free blood pressure screenings and will offer information about health care opportunities that includes VNATIP home health care. For local businesses, the festival is a way of attracting new potential customers from the immediate area as well as outside communities. Local Chamber members will have displays of their products or services. Some are planning to register people for free drawings and to give away free gifts. The festival

gives them the opportunity for a relaxed venue to get to know new customers and socialize with their old friends and customers.

Music Tuning in Stanley to headline folk festival The Sheldon and 88.1 KDHX present Ralph Stanley and His Clinch Mountain Boys, Saturday, September 28 at 8 p.m. in the perfect acoustics of the Sheldon Concert Hall. Billed as his “Farewell Tour,” Stanley appears as part of the 2nd Annual St. Louis Folk and Roots Festival, taking place September 27-29 throughout Grand Center. Wi t h o v e r 1 5 0 a l b u m s , s i x Grammy nominations and more than 60 years in the music b u s i n e s s t o h i s c re d i t , R a l p h Stanley has played a major role in the resurgence of traditional bluegrass, mountain and roots music. Described as the “King of Mountain Soul,” Ralph Stanley continues to win over new audiences with his high, sorrowful tenor, featured on his newest album A Mother ’s Prayer. Wi t h h i s r a w e m o t i o n s a n d driving three-fingered banjo technique, Ralph Stanley has helped bring mountain-style bluegrass music to mainstream audiences. Winner of the 2002 Grammy f o r B e s t M a l e C o u n t r y Vo c a l P e r f o r m a n c e f o r h i s f e a t u re d work on the Grammy-winning s o u n d t r a c k , O B ro t h e r W h e re Art Thou?, Stanley continues to stay current. Still touring and performing over 100 dates per year, Stanley remains a true icon in the field of bluegrass and old time mountain music. Born in Stratton, Virginia in 1927, Ralph Stanley first started performing in 1941. Four years after forming a duo with his

brother Carter, the two started to perform with the Clinch Mountain Boys and quickly became one of the most renowned bluegrass acts on the country circuit. Appearing at numerous bluegrass festivals, people were drawn from across the United States to hear the “poignant, mournful sound” of

Stanley’s style. Now a Bluegrass Hall of Fame member, Stanley became an inspiration to young and promising talents who eventually w e n t o n t o h a v e s o l o c a re e r s of their own, including Ricky Skaggs, Keith Whitley and Larry Sparks.

“No rules, no limits,� is how Connick describes the songs in his liner notes for the new collection. “I don’t recall ever reaching quite as deeply – or confidently – into my inhibition pool.� The range of the CDs songs is vast, touching upon love and loss, celebration and sorrow, tragedy a n d h o p e .

McLaughlin to perform at Blueberry Hill Singer/songwriter Jon McLaughlin has announced his Holding My Breath tour, kicking off just a day after the release of a new album on September 24th. The tour begins close to his Midwest home base and travels throughout the country with stops in Chicago, Nashville, Philadelphia and New York. The forthcoming album, crowdfunded via PledgeMusic, is the second self-released project for McLaughlin, whose Forever If Ever debuted at #1 on both the iTunes Singer Songwriter Top 200 album chart and the iTunes To p 1 0 0 s o n g s c h a r t i n 2 0 11 . Shortly after Forever if Ever was released, Razor & Tie Records licensed the album, renaming i t P ro m i s i n g P ro m i s e s . O v e r 800,000 people have watched the video to the album’s single “ S u m m e r I s O v e r, � w h i c h f e a t u re s g u e s t v o c a l s b y S a r a

Bareilles. McLaughlin’s debut album, Indiana (2007), and OK Now (2008) immediately connected with music fans and drove his sweetly melancholy songs up the pop charts, including “Beautiful Disaster� and “So Close� (from the Disney film Enchanted) which he performed at the 2008 Academy Awards. The success of 2011’s Forever if Ever reaffirmed h i s c o m m i t m e n t t o re m a i n i n g an independent artist and strengthened his already close bond with his fans, prompting him to offer private concerts, studio visits and personal letters to those helping crowdfund the recording of his newest project ( projects/jonmclaughlin). McLaughlin will perform on Sept. 28 at Blueberry Hill in St. Louis. F o r m o re i n f o r m a t i o n , v i s i t

Kennedy to appear with SLSO Due to a scheduling conflict, soprano Christine Brewer will not be performing with the St. Louis Symphony May 9-11, 2014. The long-time Lebanon, Illinois resident and world-renowned vocalist will instead be in Chicago. The concerts including

Les Illuminations will not be reprogrammed; tenor Andrew Kennedy is now scheduled to perform the piece with the St. Louis Symphony. Kennedy last performed with the St. Louis Symphony in October of 2010, when he sang Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. “Sometimes in this business, I wish I could be in two places at once, and it happened to me for the 2013/14 season,� says Brewer. “I was scheduled to sing Britten's Les Illuminations with the St. Louis Symphony and David Robertson, but a conflicting offer came to me from the Lyric Opera of Chicago to sing the role of the Mother Abbess in a production of The Sound of Music. Having sung that role as a student at Shawnee High School in Wolf Lake, Illinois and directed the show when I taught music in Marissa, Illinois, I have a deep connection to the role of that classic piece. I was t o r n , a s I n e v e r d re a m e d I ' d actually have another chance to sing the role of the Mother Abbess, but David Robertson gratefully understood and supported taking the opportunity. I am extremely sad not to be singing with my hometown orchestra this coming season. I will miss working with David and all of my friends in the Orchestra, but I hope we will have many other seasons to work together!�

The Arts Artistic adventures "My Fair Lady" to close season at STAGES Hailed as one of the greatest musicals of all time, My Fair Lady (September 6 through October 6) is the perfect grand finale to the STAGES ST. LOUIS record-breaking 27th season. This romantic fancy radiates a charm and sophistication unlike any other musical and reigns as an American masterpiece. Lerner and Loewe's score couldn't be closer to pure perfection, with memorable show-stoppers such as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "On the Street Where You Live," and "Get Me to the Church on Time." You'll "grow accustomed" to this "loverly" classic as "your heart takes flight." The gold standard by which all others are measured, My Fair Lady brings to vibrant life the thrilling transformation of Eliza Doolittle, a lowly flower girl in Victorian London, into a ravishing upper class lady. Hedging his bets, Professor Henry Higgins is determined to teach this cockney girl proper English but will he be able to get along without her once he succeeds? My Fair Lady is based on Pygmalion, written by George Bernard Shaw in 1912. Pygmalion had its first production in Vienna during the fall of 1913 and premiered in New York at the Irving Place Theatre during the spring of 1914. Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe had the brilliant idea to adapt the play into a musical and began this process in 1950. My Fair Lady premiered on Broadway in 1956 at the Mark Hellinger Theatre and starred Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison. It closed in 1962 after 2,717 performances, a record at that time. Christopher Guilmet and Pamela Brumley star as Professor Henry Higgins and Eliza Doolittle, respectively. Guilmet returns to STAGES, previously appearing in The Sound of Music, Man of La Mancha,


Camelot, and A Little Night Music. His numerous New York, L.A., and regional credits include The Crucible, Carousel and The Immigrant. Brumleyalso returns to STAGES, having previously appeared in Little Women, Thoroughly Modern Millie and A Little Night Music. Among her numerous New York and regional credits, Brumley has previously played Eliza in My Fair Lady and appeared in Camelot, Show Boat, Beauty and the Beast and the film The Perfect Stranger. Also starring in the production i s re t u r n i n g B ro a d w a y A c t o r Edward Juvier (Alfred P. Doolittle), previously appearing in The Secret Garden, Promises, Promises, Man of La Mancha, Guys and Dolls, and The Drowsy Chaperone. Juvier's other credits include the National Tour and Broadway productions of Les Miserables.St. Louis actors John Flack, (Colonel Pickering) has appeared in twenty-three STAGES seasons, most recently the 2013 production of Disney's Cinderella and the 2012 production of My One and Only. Flack's other credits include Annie, Guys and Dolls, Whoopee!, and Promises, Promises, Zoe Vonder Haar (Mrs. Higgins), returns after performing in over sixty STAGES productions, including Always... Patsy Cline, Hello, Dolly!, Gypsy, Mame, and A Chorus Line. Vonder Haar's other credits include the first International Touring Company of A Chorus Line and numerous productions at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis and The Muny, and Kari Ely (Mrs. Pearce) returns to STAGES for her 39th production. Ely's other Credits include Sense and Sensibility, Sunday in the Park with George, A Little Night Music and The Music Man. With Brandon Davidson (Freddie Eynsford-Hill) who returns to STAGES after just appearing in Legally Blonde, The Musical and previously appearing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

His other credits include the first National Tour of Irving Berlin's White Christmas and regional credits include Damn Yankees, A Chorus Line, and Cabaret. Complete biographical information is listed on STAGES' website at Single ticket prices range from $20 - $55. STAGES performs in the intimate, 377-seat Robert G. Reim Theatre at the Kirkwood Civic Center, 111 South Geyer Road in St. Louis, MO. For more information or to purchase tickets call 314-821-2407 or visit

Lewis Black returning to St. Louis Live Nation welcomes Lewis Black to the Peabody Opera House on Friday, October 4 at 8PM.

Lewis Black, Grammy Awardwinning stand-up comedian, is o n e o f t h e m o s t p ro l i f i c a n d popular performers working today. He executes a brilliant trifecta as stand-up comedian, actor and author. Receiving critical acclaim, he performs over 200 nights a year to sell out audiences throughout Europe, New Zealand, Canada and United States. He is one of a few performers to sell out multiple renowned theatres including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Brooks Atkinson Theatre, New York City Center, the Main Stage at the Mirage in Las Vegas and most recently a sold out Broadway run at the Richard Rodgers Theatre in NYC. His live performances provide a cathartic release of anger and disillusionment for his audience. He is a passionate performer who is a more pissed-off optimist than mean-spirited curmudgeon. Lewis

is the rare comic who can cause an audience to laugh themselves into incontinence while making compelling points about the absurdity of our world. Lewis Black came into national prominence with his appearances on THE DAILY SHOW in 1996. Those appearances on "The Daily Show" led to comedy specials on HBO, Comedy Central, Showtime and Epix. In 2001, he won the Best Male Stand-Up at the American Comedy Awards. He has released eight comedy albums, including the 2007 Grammy Award-winning "The Carnegie Hall Performance." Lewis Black won his second Grammy Award for his album "Stark Raving Black." Lewis has published three bestselling books, Nothing’s Sacred (Simon & Schuster, 2005), Me of Little Faith (Riverhead Books, 2008) and I’m Dreaming of a Black Christmas (Riverhead Books, 2010).

The retrospective exhibit, “Winifred Godfrey: 40 Years of Painting,” will feature oil and watercolor paintings, drawings and lithographs, including figurative work, paintings which depict the distinctive textiles of the Mayan people of the Guatemalan Highlands, and floral pieces. “What interests me primarily in painting floral forms is the delicate and temporary quality of the blossom,” Godfrey said. “Although the canvases are painted realistically, the flower is the starting point for an abstract study of the luminosity and transparency of the individual petal. I try to accomplish this through the magnification of the plant form itself in a tight design, and make a dynamic spatial relationship of this form with the rectangle of the canvas.” A public opening for the exhibit will take place from 3-6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 15. The exhibit will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily through Saturday, Oct. 12. On Oct. 12, a closing reception will be held from 3-6 p.m. “The c o l l e g e i s g r a t e f u l t o Winifred Godfrey for providing us the opportunity to organize an exhibition that covers four decades of her work,” said Jim Price, professor of art, history and culture at Lewis and Clark. “It is a unique opportunity for people to see the amazing breadth and depth of her art. This is a show that will enhance the offerings of the college and increase our perception of what excellence is.” The exhibit of Godfrey’s art, which graces the Lewis and Clark’s Godfrey campus in both the Templin Nursing Building and the Trimpe ATC, will provide local residents and art patrons from the Chicago area with the opportunity to see more than 100 pieces of her extensive work spanning four decades. This is the first time a display of Godfrey’s work of this scope and size has ever been exhibited in the United States. Godfrey brings a decidedly 20th century look to the long tradition of floral and figurative painting. Her work is often described as photorealistic, although her interest is more with color and composition. Working with common subjects but presented large, Godfrey’s art provides a fresh view of the intricate shapes, texture and translucency of flowers. Her figurative work is presented in a unique, life-sized format. Born in Philadelphia and raised on Chicago’s south side, Godfrey received a Bachelor of Science in Art and a Master of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin. Her artwork is included in many private, corporate and museum collections and has been exhibited throughout North America. Among Godfrey’s more notable exhibitions are one-woman shows at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh, Penn., the University of Pennsylvania Museum in Philadelphia, Penn., the Organization of American States in Washington, D.C., the Rahr-West Art Museum in Manitowoc, Wis., and the David Rockefeller Center for


Latin American Studies at Harvard in Cambridge, Mass. Godfrey’s work was presented with that of Georgia O’Keefe and Marc Chagall at an exhibit of 20th century flower paintings at the Museum of Art of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. She has also exhibited at the Chicago Botanic Garden, where she won the Flora Exhibition Award of Excellence. Other awards to her credit are the State of Illinois Library Competition and First Prize out of 4,500 floral entries in The Artist’s Magazine Floral Competition. More recently she was awarded the Municipal Art League’s Award of Excellence for her entire career and body of work. This spring Godfrey exhibited h e r “ M AYA N P R O C E S S I O N ” at the Chicago Cultural Center in the Renaissance Court Gallery. In the last several years she has been working on a series of figurative paintings of highland indigenous of Guatemala. Each canvas depicts a different village and costume. There are currently 14 life-size oils that are exhibited in sequence and called “MAYAN PROCESSION.” “In the early eighties, Guatemala began to have enormous political problems that had a direct and devastating effect on the very groups that I found so beautiful and compelling,” Godfrey said. “Following the information about the political situation in Guatemala made me want, all the more, to say something about these indigenous people. My intentions changed from seeking to record an impression of something ancient and beautiful to a desire to educate others about the potential devastation of a living culture that preserves one of the only true links to our pre-Columbian past.” Along with painting flowers, Godfrey plans to finish four more Mayan pieces to complete the series. The exhibit has actual textiles, photos and other educational

material to accompany the paintings. A unique addition to the exhibit is a sawdust carpet called an “Alfombra” which is a special tradition in Guatemala before processions. The “MAYAN PROCESSION” has been exceptionally well received in various museums and educational institutions throughout the country.

Dining Delights A stuffed Mexican egg with a healthy kick Once the eggs have cooled, peel and halve them lengthwise. In a small bowl combine 6 of the yolks (discarding the remaining 2 or saving them for another use) with the avocado, mayonnaise, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of lime juice. Mash with a potato masher or fork until the mixture is smooth with a few lumps. Stir in the remaining onion and jalapeno, add salt and pepper to taste. Mound the egg-avocado mixture into the egg whites and top each one with some of the salsa.

By SARA MOULTON Associated Press


hen I was growing up, I loved my mom’s stuffed eggs. Heck, as a chubby and happy-go-lucky kid, I loved anything filled with mayonnaise. As I grew older, I figured out that these seductive little bitesized appetizers (also called deviled eggs, at least when spiked with something hot) were packed with calories. Happily, I now know that you don’t need a ton of mayonnaise to make a tasty filling. This recipe satisfies the heedless little kid in me and the more prudent grown-up. But first, we need to address the proper way to boil an egg. The goal is to produce a tender white with no nasty green line between it and the yolk. It was Julia Child who taught me how to achieve this lovely result. The key is not to hard boil the egg, but to hard cook it. You put the eggs in cold water, bring the water to a boil, remove the pan from the heat, then cover it. About 15 minutes later, you drain the pot and run cold water over the eggs. I tend to let them stand for 10 minutes, not 15. It’s the cold water that prevents the green line from forming. What kind of egg is the best candidate for hard cooking? Oddly enough, you don’t want it to be super fresh. Slightly older eggs are better for hard cooking because the air pocket between the egg and the shell gets larger as the egg gets older. This makes them easier to peel. How do you figure out the age of an egg (other than by reading the date on the carton)? Place your egg in a bowl of water. If it lies on its side on the bottom of the bowl, it is very fresh. If it stands up, it is somewhat aged and perfect for hard cooking. If it floats to the surface, you might want to toss it. Now for the filling. Aside from a lone tablespoon of low-fat mayo, most of my filling’s creamy texture is thanks to the avocado. Though this wonderful fruit, a native of Mexico, was maligned for years by the food police because of its high fat content, avocados actually are as nutritious as they are delicious. Here I’ve teamed up the avocado with all of its guacamole pals — lime juice, onion and jalapeno peppers — and topped it with salsa. Weirdly enough, you may have to search a little to find jalapenos with heat, as they’ve developed a strain of them in Texas that are mostly tame. Me, I don’t get it. It’d be like manufacturing alcohol-free rum. Anyway, you may decide that even your fiery jalapenos aren’t fiery enough. In that case, just add some of the pepper ’s seeds and ribs. That’ll definitely raise the temperature. I call for salsa here because tomatoes — especially local tomatoes — are now at the height of their season, so going to the trouble of using those tomatoes to whip up some homemade salsa pays big dividends.

This photo shows a recipe for Mexican style stuffed eggs. prefer cherry tomatoes, but any ripe tomato will do. I salt them first, then let them stand a bit to concentrate their flavor. If you’re in a rush, or if you want to cook up this dish when it’s not tomato season, by all means use your favorite storebought salsa. Their deliciousness aside, these eggs, with their green-and-red color scheme, would be as festive at Christmas as they are in mid-summer.

Add enough cold water to cover by 1 inch. Bring the water just to a boil, then remove the saucepan from the heat, cover it, and set it aside for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, transfer the eggs to a bowl of ice and water and let cool completely. While the eggs are cooking, in
