Maya Angelou The woman who has done it all will tell her story at SIUE By JULIA BIGGS Of The Edge SIUE’s Arts & Issue’s silver anniversary season continues on Oct. 4 as the legendary author Maya Angelou will appear at 2 p.m. in the Meridian Ballroom. The quintessential poet, historian, best-selling author, actress, civilrights activist, educator and playwright is hailed as one of the great voices of contemporary American literature. Her life experiences cross the globe through St. Louis, Arkansas, California, New York, Egypt, South Africa and back and include some of the most glorious experiences to the most horrific. Through her experiences Angelou spreads her legendary wisdom to captivated audiences who enjoy the insightful beauty of her words and lyrics. Her presentation on the Oct. 4 will prove to be both engaging and thought-provoking. Angelou was born Marguerite Johnson on April 4, 1928, in St. Louis. She was raised in both St. Louis and Stamps, Ark., where she experienced the brutality of racial discrimination. She lived with her grandmother in Arkansas for several years after her parent’s marriage dissolved when Angelou was just 3 years old. Then at the age of 7, Angelou’s father returned her and her brother to her mother ’s care in St. Louis. A year later, while living with her mother, Angelou’s mother ’s boyfriend, Mr. Freeman, sexually abused and raped Angelou. After telling her younger brother about the attack, Angelou’s brother told the family. Freeman was found guilty but served just a single day in jail. A few days after Freeman’s release from jail, he was found dead, kicked to death. Fearing that it was her voice
October 1, 2009
identifying Freeman as her attacker that had resulted in his murder, Angelou became a mute, afraid if she spoke, she might kill another. Angelou and her brother returned to live with their grandmother in Arkansas where Angelou was nearly mute for the next five years. A teacher and family friend encouraged Angelou to eventually speak again and also introduced her to literature. At the age of 13, Angelou and her brother went to live with their mother who then lived in San Francisco. As a teenager, Angelou loved the arts and won a scholarship to study art and dance at San Francisco’s Labor School. At age 14 she dropped out of school but soon became San Francisco’s first African-American female cable car conductor. After eventually graduating from high school, she gave birth to a son and as a single mom struggled to support her son by working as a waitress and a cook. It would not be long before her love of music, dance, performance, and poetry would reenter her life. According to her Web site, in 1954 and 1955, she “toured Europe with a production of the opera ‘Porgy and Bess.’ She studied modern dance with Martha Graham, danced with Alvin Ailey on television variety shows and, in 1957, recorded her first album, ‘Calypso Lady.’ In 1958, she moved to New York, where she joined the Harlem Writers Guild, acted in the historic Off-Broadway production of Jean Genet’s ‘The Blacks’ and wrote and performed ‘Cabaret for Freedom.’” In 1960, Angelou moved to Cairo, Egypt, where she served as the editor of “The Arab Observer.” She also lived in Ghana while living abroad and taught at the University of Ghana’s School of Music and
Drama, worked as a feature editor for “The African Review” and wrote for “The Ghanian Times.” She met Malcolm X while in Ghana and returned to the U.S. in 1964 to help him build his new Organization of African American Unity. Shortly after her return to the U.S., Malcolm X was assassinated and the organization dissolved. It was not long after the assassination that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., asked Angelou to serve as the northern coordinator for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Devastated by King’s assassination soon thereafter, Angelou dealt with her profound grief, with the guidance of a friend, by writing her memoirs. In 1970, Angelou’s first and most highly acclaimed, “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” was published. This first book chronicles Angelou’s first 17 years of her life. The book brought her international recognition and was nominated for a National Book Award. In 1993, President Bill Clinton requested that Angelou compose
and read a poem at his presidential inauguration. Her poem, “On the Pulse of the Morning” was broadcast live across the world and her presentation resulted in a Grammy award for “Best Spoken Word.” She was also just the second poet in U.S. history to have the honor of writing and reciting original work at an inauguration. The first was Robert Frost at JFK’s presidential inauguration. Angelou has been involved in both television and the film industry. She has made hundreds of television appearances and has written and produced several prize winning documentaries. Nominated for an Emmy Award for her acting in “Roots” and her screenplay of “Georgia,” Angelou has had a successful career as a playwright and actress and has broken ground for AfricanAmerican women in the film industry. In total, Angelou now has more than 30 bestselling titles and is the author of numerous magazine articles. She’s earned a Pulitzer Prize nomination, has more than 30
honorary degrees and is a Reynolds Professor of American Studies at Wake Forest University. “Letter to My Daughter” published in 2008 is Angelou’s latest work which her Web site describes as “Dedicated to the daughter she never had but sees all around her, “Letter to My Daughter” reveals Maya Angelou’s path to living well and living a life with meaning.” Her performance on Oct. 4 is sure to energize the soul and stir the mind through her command of the English language and lyrical presentation. Tickets for “An Afternoon with Maya Angelou” and the remaining Arts & Issues performances may be purchased online at www. siue.edu/artsandissues/ General admission is $27, SIUE staff, retirees, alumni or seniors 65 and older are $25 and students are $13.

People People planner Washington Bible will be displayed The Bible upon which George Washington rested his hand on April 30, 1789 when taking the oath of office as first President of the United States will be displayed for one day, Friday, October 9, at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library in downtown Springfield, Illinois. The public is invited to view this one-of-a-kind historic artifact free of charge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day. The Inaugural Bible has been brought to Illinois for the first time by the Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Illinois and is provided as a courtesy by the St. John’s Lodge of New York for use during the installation of the Grand Master and Grand Lodge Officers on Friday evening, October 9 at the Springfield Hilton. The Bible complements an original 1799 George Washington letter featured in the exhibit Illinois Stories: “How Vast and How Varied a Field…” The Agricultural Vi s i o n o f A b r a h a m L i n c o l n , which may be seen at the adjacent Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum. The letter is on loan from the St. Louis Mercantile Library and will be displayed through November 2009. Paid admission is required to visit the Museum, while there is no charge to visit the Library. “We are grateful to the Grand Lodge for bringing this priceless artifact to Illinois for the first time for public viewing,” said Illinois State Historian Thomas Schwartz. “Washington and Lincoln have always been considered our most important presidents, and having artifacts from both men in such close proximity is a truly memorable occasion.” After the conclusion of the War of Independence, New York City became the first Capitol of the United States, and it was there on April 30, 1789 that George Washington, a Brother of the Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, was to be sworn in as the nation’s
first President. Gathered on the Inaugural platform were members of Congress, Washington, and Chancellor Robert R. Livingston, Grand Master of Masons in the State of New York. Everything was ready for the oath of office when it was discovered that a Bible had not been provided upon which the President-Elect could swear allegiance to the Constitution. Jacob Morton, marshal of the Inaugural Parade and Master of St. John’s Lodge, offered to get the altar Bible of St. John’s Lodge, which met nearby at the corner of Water and Wall Streets. Chancellor Livingston asked Morton to fetch t h e B i b l e , a n d t h e c e re m o n y proceeded. Washington took the oath with his right hand resting on the Bible which had been opened to the Book of Genesis, chapters 49 and 50. Washington concluded the oath with “I swear, so help me God!” then bowed over the Bible and reverently kissed it, whereupon Chancellor Livingston exclaimed, “Long live George Washington,
President of the United States!” The King James Version Bible has since been used at four other inaugurations: President Warren G. Harding in 1921; President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953; President Jimmy Carter in 1977; and President George H.W. Bush in 1989. It was also to have been used for the inauguration of President George W. Bush in 2001, but rain prevented its use. It has also been present at numerous public and Masonic occasions, including Washington’s funeral procession in New York, December 3 1 , 1 7 9 9 ; t h e i n t ro d u c t i o n o f Croton water into New York City, October 14, 1840; the dedication of the Masonic Temples in Boston, June 24, 1867 and Philadelphia on May 24, 1869; the dedication of the Washington monument in Washington, DC on February 21, 1885 and its rededication in 1998; and the laying of the cornerstone of the Masonic Home at Utica, NY on May 21, 1891.

Music America’s first “idol” is coming to St. Louis
K e l l y
C l a r k s o n
By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge “My Life Would Suck Without You,” that was the most recent song I sang along with by Kelly Clarkson. I was a little taken aback by the title at first, but when I got to thinking about it, that is how someone her age would express their thoughts on loosing their significant other. I know my life would suck without my love. Well, one of the hardest working artists on the current charts is again stepping out for another tour. Pop megastar Kelly Clarkson announced that her much anticipated “All I Ever Wanted” tour is coming this fall. Joining Clarkson is the rising band Parachute. Hard to imagine that she was the first “American Idol,” that nervous raspy voice waiting to be judged by Simon, Paula and Randy. But, she is nervous no more. Clarkson has sold more than 20 million albums since her 2002 debut. Her current “All I Ever Wanted” release shattered Billboard records, when “My Life Would Suck Without You” jumped from No. 97 to No. 1 in its first week of release. Clarkson premiered her current single “Already Gone” recently on The Late Show with David Letterman. The high-energy tour kicks off in Portland, Maine, on Oct. 4, and concludes in Pensacola, Fla., on Dec. 11, covering 26 total U.S. and Canadian markets. Steve Moore of MEG/AEG LIVE Nashville will promote the tour. “We are thrilled to work with Kelly Clarkson again. She is truly one of the best vocalists in the business.” Moore said. Clarkson will pull into St. Louis on Saturday, Oct. 31, at 8 p.m. at The Family Arena, on Arena Parkway, in St. Charles, Mo. Concert attendees can expect to hear these latest hits including “I Do Not Hook Up” from the tour ’s namesake album, along with her signature pop anthems. Tickets are on sale and can be purchased at the Family Arena Ticket Office and all MetroTix locations including Macy’s and Schnucks video centers or on the Web at www.metrotix.com. Ticket prices are: $74.50 (Floor Rows 1 -10), $54.50 (Floor and Lower Level), $44.50 (Upper Level); Special V.I.P. Package available for $254.50. To charge by phone call MetroTix at 314-534-1111. For help purchasing accessible seating, please call The Family Arena ADA Hotline at 636-896-4234. Directions to The Family Arena: from Interstate 70, take the South Fifth Street exit and follow the signs to Arena Parkway. (Just five minutes from Riverport).

Chamber Chorus to open season The first concert of the Saint Louis Chamber Chorus’s 54th season can be seen as
complementing last season’s opener “On First Hearing.” “On Second Hearing” will feature a number of works, old and new, the Chamber Chorus has introduced to St. Louis audiences in the past. A m o n g t h e “ o l d ” a re t h re e significant Renaissance compositions. “Beati Omnes,” a psalm setting which John Sheppard might have composed for the wedding of Philip of Spain to England’s Queen Mary Tudor, has been recently reconstructed by Washington University’s Professor Craig Monson. Andrea Gabrieli’s polychoral masterpiece was written for a group of Japanese p r i n c e s v i s i t i n g t h e Ve n e t i a n Republic. Finally, “Lamentations” is a languorous and haunting work from Portugal’s Manuel Cardoso. Contemporary music on the program includes no fewer than three pieces commissioned by the Chamber Chorus. American Howard Helvey’s lush “Evening Song” contrasts with “Aquileia,” a homage to Venice by Britain’s Judith Bingham. Lastly, the Chorus w i l l re p r i s e t h e m o n u m e n t a l “Stabat Mater” by American Stephen Paulus, which saw its

Everyone’s invited! Community-wide Fall Fest kicks off four days of fun on Oct. 8
By ANN NICCUM Of The Edge The Route 66 festival may be a thing of the past, but the concept will be reborn this October with a community-wide Fall Fest. The Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber of Commerce announced it, along with the city of Edwardsville, the village of Glen Carbon and SIUE, will join together for one weekend in October to offer the community a variety of events and activities to attend. Chamber Executive Director Carol Foreman said the Fall Fest will provide an opportunity for Edwardsville, Glen Carbon and SIUE, as well as the business community, both public and private, to join together and promote the area. The chamber has asked all the communities and businesses in the area to participate in the festivities by planning events, hosting open houses and partnering with non-profit organizations on Oct. 8 through Oct. 11. Foreman said the weekend coincides with SIUE’s homecoming, Parent’s Day and Alumni Weekend. She said more than 900 families are anticipated to be in the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon area that weekend for those events at SIUE. She said the chamber is promoting all events that weekend at SIUE and those to be part of the Fall Fest. To help promote the event, the chamber has created a Web site, www.EdGlenFallFest.com. Foreman said anyone interested in adding an event to the list should e-mail her at email@example.com. She said a number of events have already been planned around the area to be part of the festivities. Events on the list include SIUE’s homecoming soccer game, classic car cruise, 10K run, bike ride, live entertainment and food. Both the city of Edwardsville and the village of Glen Carbon have planned events as part of the festival. Edwardsville Mayor Gary Niebur and Glen Carbon Mayor Robert Jackstadt are also both excited about the concept. “We are excited about the upcoming fall festival,” Niebur said. “Our Parks and Recreation Department has planned some great events and activities including great entertainment, food and many varied activities for people of all ages. Several local organizations and businesses have joined the effort. It will undoubtedly be an exciting and fun filled weekend for the entire area and visiting guests.” Jackstadt said he too believes the festival will be a wonderful event for both communities. “I am very pleased that the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Chamber is spearheading this endeavor and to coordinate this community-wide fall event for the local area,” Jackstadt said. “This is a classic example of the different organizations joining forces together for the overall good. The events will not only be fun for local residents, but for the visitors attending activities at the university. I hope this becomes an annual event.” The Fall Fest will have many of the same events planned for the annual Route 66 Festival and many more as it brings together not only Edwardsville, but also Glen Carbon, SIUE and businesses and organizations throughout the area for the four-day event. The festival includes a full schedule of

Family Focus Mr. Obama’s Chicago neighborhood CHICAGO (AP) — A jogger has to alter his route because of security barricades. But a local barber shop is enjoying a tourism boom. And n e i g h b o rh o o d re s i d e n t s h a v e gained a reason to brag to friends — all thanks to President Barack Obama. Although Obama and the first family have spent little time in Chicago since packing their bags for the White House in January, their presence is still felt around their old South Side neighborhood. It’s most noticeable near their $1.6 million, red brick mansion, which sits just off a busy street, partially blocked from view by trees. Even when the president isn’t in town, concrete and metal barricades block the entrance to his side street, interrupting pedestrian traffic on one side of a main thoroughfare. That sends jogger Troy Palmer to the other side of the street when he’s running his usual route. But Palmer isn’t bothered. “I voted for him. I wanted him to be president. What more can I expect?” said the 48-year-old Web designer. Palmer says it’s worse when Obama is in town. Then, authorities completely block off the main artery for a couple of blocks in each direction. B u t t h e p re s i d e n t a n d h i s family have rarely spent time at the Chicago home since settling in at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington. They spent a long weekend in Chicago in February, and Obama also stopped by the house in
July when he was in town on a fundraising trip. Soon after he got elected, Obama talked about wanting to make regular visits home to his urban vacation White House. “My Kennebunkport is on the South Side of Chicago,” Obama told the Chicago Tribune last year. “Our friends are here. Our family is here. We are going to try to come back here as often as possible ... at least once every six weeks or couple months.” That hasn’t happened, but the first family is still keeping up with their Chicago friends. Some have since moved to Washington with them, including White House adviser Valerie Jarrett and White House social secretary Desiree Rogers. Other friends
sometimes travel with the first family, including Dr. Eric Whitaker, who played golf with Obama while on vacation on Martha’s Vineyard last month. When they do come home to Chicago, the Obamas could have new neighbors because the 17-room house next door is for sale. The home wasn’t listed with a price tag because the owners wanted to see what the “Obama factor” would bring. Homes in the area generally sell for between $1 million and $2.5 million. The new owners will have to deal with the hassles that come with living next to a presidential residence. That means giving Obama’s security detail the names of friends and other guests who want to visit them and having
people check in before they’re allowed down the street, which is always barricaded, said homeowner Bill Grimshaw. “When he’s here, the street turns into a madhouse. There are like 30 to 40 guys. Cars all over the place. Red alert kind of circumstances. Everybody is tense. Everybody’s head is on a swivel,” Grimshaw
said. The Secret Service won’t talk about security procedures around Obama’s house but says allowances are made for neighbors. “ We d o c e r t a i n l y m a k e accommodations for them so their lives are impacted as little as they possibly can be,” spokesman Malcolm Wiley said.

ARE YOU READY FOR A GHOST STORY? New Madrid offers tours for spook lovers
By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge New Madrid, Mo., has the distinct honor to the claim of being the oldest American city west of the Mississippi. Incorporated in 1808, the town is steeped in old South traditions and offers a host of historical attractions. One of New Madrid’s most noted attractions is the Ghost Tours that will be offered this
year on Friday, Oct. 16 and Saturday, Oct. 17. Participants can take part in actual paranormal investigations at some of New Madrid’s most haunted locations. There will be two tours offered each night, one at 7:30 p.m. and one at 9:30 p.m. Tours run approximately 90 minutes and are partial walking tours. Some of the highlights of the tours will be the Dixie Theatre. Built in the 1930s, the theater
has played host to many local characters, who are still waiting their final curtain call. A grand and beautiful building in its hay day, the theater was used for movies as well as Vaudeville acts. No one is quite sure whose spirits remain. Perhaps the shadow seen walking past the back curtains that of a former picture show manager, Mr. Biler, or the footsteps you hear are theater regular “Cap” still searching for his favorite seat. The Dixie is still used for movies and live performances, but when the lights go out, the real show begins. Another stop on the tour is where the last official hanging in the state of Missouri took place on Aug. 30, 1935. Roy E. Hamilton and Eddie Gaymon were hung near the county jailhouse for the Christmas Eve murder of Arthur Cashion, a filling station clerk. Do the ghosts of Roy and Eddie still roam the location where the gallows once stood or has Arthur returned to make sure justice was served? Another feature on the tour is The Hart-Steppe House. It is
the oldest house in New Madrid, with the two original rooms dating back to 1832. This house has been moved at least twice to escape the encroaching waters of the Mississippi and has seen many owners. Some believe a few still reside in the home. These are just a few of the locations and stories that ghost seekers will witness on the tours. Reservations are required and space is very limited. Admission price is $10 per person. The tours do take place, rain or shine. If you would like to to attempt to capture one of these paranormal events, be sure to bring a camera and a flashlight is also a great asset. Please note though, that ghosts don’t always come out on cue, so paranormal activity is not guaranteed. Personal tours of the ghostly sites are available throughout the year for groups of 15 or more. For information, contact the New Madrid Chamber of Commerce at 877-748-5300 or you may e-mail chambernm@ yahoo.com.

Kicking off the season SIUE’s Theater and Dance Department to open with “Good 'N Plenty” By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Southern Illinois University Edwardsville hosts a number of talented students who study in their renowned Theater and Dance Department. The campus invites the public to experience this talent by attending one or all of the upcoming shows recently announced in the 2009 Theater and Dance Schedule. First on the list is “Good ‘N’ Plenty,” by Jeffrey Hatcher and directed by Peter Cocuzza. The show opens on Oct. 14 and runs through Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. on Oct. 18 in Dunham Hall. A signed performance is offered for the Saturday night, Oct. 17 performance. The premise: at Wintersville High School, in 1976, Richard Miller is the hip new Social Studies instructor at his crumbling old alma mater and decides to teach his students about the U.S. criminal justice system by staging a “drug game,” where the students play pushers, buyers, narcs, cops, and lawyers by using Good & Plenty candies as the contraband of choice. Bad idea – after a hilarious unraveling of authority, with switcheroos and betrayals galore, most of the school has landed in actual jail. A brilliant twist on high school madness and a compelling meditation on democracy as well. Dance in Concert 2009 will run from Dec. 2 through Dec. 5, and Dec. 11 and Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m. each night, and on Dec. 6 and Dec. 13 at 2 p.m.
Described as being loaded with entertainment, the evening will be filled with sights and sounds brought to a beautiful fluidity in movement on stage. “Whammy!!: The Seven Secrets to a Sane Self” (World Premiere) is the Theater and Dance Department’s own Chuck Harper creation. It is an original performance piece that explores America’s obsession with, and
addiction to, self-help and selfactualization. “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” was written by Bert V. Royal and is directed by Chuck Harper. Showing Feb. 24 through Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m., and on Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. When CB’s dog dies from rabies, CB starts questioning the existence of an afterlife. Drug use, suicide, eating disorders, teen
violence, rebellion and sexual identity all collide in what New York magazine describes as: “Dog Sees God doesn’t feel like the same old high-school-warfare schlock.” “Intimate Apparel” is the final show in the series and is written by Lynn Nottage and directed by Kathryn Bentley. It runs April 21 through April 24 at 7:30 p.m. and April 25 at 2 p.m. Highly acclaimed in its OffBroadway production in 2004, this touching drama is set in the early 1900s when a talented African-American clothing designer, Esther, creates intimate apparel for N.Y. society ladies and prostitutes alike. Her life becomes romantically intertwined with her clientele, challenging the sexual taboos of the age.

ARTEAST’s 12th year just over the horizon Now in its 12th year, ARTEAST offers unique, behind-thescenes, one-on-one visits with Madison County artists at work in their studios October 17 and 18, 11 AM-5 PM. Local painters, potters, jewelers, photographers, and others, will be showcasing their diverse works and answering questions about their inspiration and techniques: Small-town friendliness meets talented artists - all the charm of the city art scene, but with a lot less traffic. ARTEAST is hosting 150 artists this year at 50 different sites spanning Madison County, including locations in Alton, Bethalto, Collinsville, Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Godfrey, Granite City, Highland, and Maryville. However, you don’t have to drive many miles to see a good sampling of work; multiple sets of studios and galleries are in walking distance from each other. In Edwardsville, for example, you can park on Main Street and walk to nearly 12 sites.
October 1, 2009
In addition to many familiar ARTEAST favorites (Old Poag Road Clay & Glass, Lane’s End Pottery, Kathy Kamm’s studio, Towata Gallery, Alton Stained Glass Works, Edwardsville Art Center, Jeffrey Vaughn, and many more), 13 new/first-time sites will participate on the tour, including Villa Marie Winery, Springer ’s Creek Winery, T.L. Biegert Jewelry & Art Gallery, Meyer Jewelry Studio 17, CMAX Photo, and By Design. Two new “artists-at-work” tour stops are Faye Malench’s fused glass studio and Alan Rhodes’s clay studio, “Cahokia Creatives”. Jacoby Arts Center will host an ARTEAST preview exhibit “Small Works”, free of charge and open to the public, which will run from October 9 through November 15. Works will be offered for sale – it’s never too early to start your special-gift holiday shopping! The show will open on Friday evening, October 9, with a reception for the artists from 5-8 PM. The Jacoby is located at 627 E.
Broadway in Alton. “ARTEAST is free, and it’s fun – and there’s so much to choose from! You can focus on one community, or a certain medium like jewelry or fiber art, or check out the different demos: Watch Lynne Ulett make a bead out of hot glass with her blow torch, see Chad Nelson pull a hot pot from the Raku kiln, learn more about digital painting on the computer from Genece Hamby, touch yarn before it is spun into wool, or ask a photographer just how he got that extraordinary shot, with the lighting just right. Come, enjoy, ask, learn, and be inspired!” said Susan Bostwick, ARTEAST coordinator. For additional information go to www.arteasttour.com or call 618-462-5222.

Travel Travel briefs West Virginia whitewater fall season expected to be a good one
in Charleston year-round beginning in May. The 2,056-passenger Carnival Cruise Lines ship will make five-, six and seven-day voyages from South Carolina to the Bahamas and Key West, Fla.
Carnival sails from Charleston currently, but operates only a handful of winter season cruises. Most travelers looking for a winter cruise from the region had to head either north to Baltimore or south to Jacksonville, Fla.
“For the first time ever, you will be able to sail from Charleston during any month of the year,” said Jim Newsome, the new president and chief executive of the South Carolina State Ports Authority.
The Fantasy is coming from Mobile, Ala., and will be replaced there by a ship from San Diego, said Jennifer de la Cruz, a Carnival spokeswoman. “Carnival’s model is fill the ship,” de la Cruz said.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s whitewater outfitters are expecting a great fall season. Outfitters told The Charleston Gazette that the Gauley and New rivers are running at prime levels. Class VI River Runners managing partner Dave Arnold says this year’s water levels are among the best he’s seen in 30 years. The fall season begins Sept. 11 when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers starts lowering Summersville Lake from its summer pool to its winter level. The Gauley’s whitewater thrills come from the extra flow of water.
Paris catacombs closed to public due to vandalism PARIS (AP) — Paris’ underground bone collection, the catacombs, has been closed to the public indefinitely after being vandalized. Ordinarily, the creepy collection of human remains — cleared from city cemeteries long ago — is orderly, with bones piled in stacks along underground tunnels. But a postvandalism photo in Le Parisien newspaper showed bones and skulls scattered along the walking paths. Isabelle Montagne, the spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor ’s office, said that an investigation has been opened into the weekend incidents.
Vatican museums to remain open at night VATICAN CITY (AP) — The Vatican says Friday nights at its museums have been a great success, so it is extending the initiative to include September and October. The Vatican Museums, which include a visit to the Sistine Chapel, are jammed by tourists during the daytime, so this summer they opened the doors on an experimental basis on July 24. Museum officials announced in a statement that the initiative proved to be so popular that nighttime visits will continue in September and October from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., with last admission at 9:30 p.m. Reservations are required and should be made on the Museums Web site: http://www.vatican.va.

Travel Travel briefs New map of what to do and see in Vancouver VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — A family-owned publishing company in Vancouver called Pink Parrot Maps has produced a unique map of its hometown just in time for folks heading to the 2010 Winter Olympics. The map covers downtown as well as Stanley Park, Granville Island and a seaside biking path. But the most unusual and useful thing about the map is that it shows dozens of hotels, restaurants, theaters, shops, museums and other attractions, marked by name on the blocks where they are actually located. The map also offers concise descriptions for most of the attractions it shows, such as this one for Salmagundi Collectibles: “Check out the Chinese herbalist cabinet downstairs.” Restaurants are displayed on the map with simple recommendations like this one for the Hermitage, “Cozy French w/ courtyard patio,” and this one for The Five Sails, “Lovely view & fine dining.” East Hastings Street is shown with a warning — “Be careful, especially at night” — while Alberni Street is recommended for its upscale shops and restaurants. The company says the unusual mix of graphics, locations and information eliminates “one of the most vexing problems with tourist maps: confusing iconography and cross referencing.” “What To Do in Downtown Va n c o u v e r : M a p & G u i d e Combined” is available from http:// www.pinkparrotmaps.com for $8.35 plus shipping, and can also be found on Amazon and at various book and travel stores.
National parks headed for banner year WASHINGTON (AP) — The national park system is headed for a record-breaking number of visitors this year if travel trends hold up. Nearly 232 million people have already visited national park sites this year, with recreational visits in 2009 up almost 5 percent compared to the first nine months of 2008. If visitation stays strong through year’s end, the parks could see more than 288 million visitors for 2009, topping the previous records of more than 287 million visitors in 1987 and 1999, according to National Park Service spokesman Jeffrey G. Olson. Ken Burns’ new series about the national parks, “America’s Best Idea,” which debuts on PBS Sept. 27, is expected to help keep interest in the parks high for the rest of the year. “We think it’s the neatest thing since sliced bread,” Olson said. But other factors have already
October 1, 2009
contributed to bringing in 13 million more people through August of this year compared to January-August 2008. President Obama’s inauguration in January kicked off the year by bumping up tourist numbers to park sites like the National Mall
and monuments in Washington D.C. Then the reopening of some portions of Gulf Islands National Seashore, off the coasts of Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, added another 3 million to park visitation, according to Olson.
Low gas prices and an increased interest in regional, inexpensive vacations also brought more folks to the parks. “Generally in times of economic turmoil, national parks are seen as being a great value, and people really connect with the parks
as a place to go,” Olson said. Obama’s visit with his family to the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone added even more buzz, and three fee-free weekends this summer encouraged more people to visit the parks too.

The Arts Artistic adventures Kemper Museum announces schedule In an unstable world chance events can seem to threaten our claims to self-determination. Yet in the early 20th century avant-garde artists embraced chance as a primary compositional principle. This fall the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum at Washington University in St. Louis will present Chance Aesthetics, a major loan exhibition examining the use of chance in modern art, from found objects and splattered paint to musical scores composed with the flip of a coin. Chance Aesthetics is the first of four major exhibitions slated for the 2009-10 academic year. Also opening in the fall will be Metabolic City, which explores visionary concepts by three internationally known groups of architects and artists: the Japanese Metabolists; the British collective Archigram; and the Dutch artist Constant Nieuwenhuys, an early member of the Situationist International. “While these two exhibitions are very different, their pairing reveals some parallel themes,” says Sabine Eckmann, director and chief curator of the Kemper Art Museum.
“For example, the use of play and explorations of the unconscious evident in the Surrealist games in Chance Aesthetics finds a new manifestation in the ludic urban landscapes envisioned by architects and artists in Metabolic City. “In addition, to varying degrees both exhibitions investigate the use of biology and nature in practice and design,” Eckmann adds. “Chance Aesthetics looks at ways in which artists variously tapped into the flow of natural processes as a method of ceding an element of artistic control, while Metabolic City investigates h o w a rc h i t e c t s e x p l o re d t h e conceptual influence of biological processes on urban design.” In Spring 2010 Eckmann will curate Sharon Lockhart — Lunch Break. Lockhart, a conceptual artist known for exploring the relationship between film and still photography, spent a year d o c u m e n t i n g m i d d a y b re a k s at the Bath Iron Works, a major shipyard located in Bath, Maine. The exhibition will include two films: Lunch Break, which consists of a single slow-moving tracking shot down a long interior corridor, and EXIT, in which a static camera captures workers as they leave the grounds.
The Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum, part of Washington University’s Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, is committed to furthering critical thinking and visual literacy through a vital
program of exhibitions, publications and accompanying events. The Kemper Art Museum is located on Washington University’s Danforth Campus, near the intersection of Skinker and Forsyth
boulevards. Regular hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday; and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. The museum is closed Tuesdays.

It’s Kate Beckinsale on Ice. In this new cold-blooded suspense flick, the actress plays Carrie Stetko, a U.S. Marshall posted at a remote base in Antarctica. Yes, the movies have returned to our southernmost continent: “Whiteout” follows in the webbed footsteps of “March of the Penguins” and Werner Herzog, who traveled there for last year ’s “Encounters at the End of the World.” This time, there’s nary a penguin in sight (though even amid all that cold, the movie still finds a way to squeeze in a steamy, gratuitous shower scene). Soon enough, Antarctica (or Canada standing in for Antarctica) has — as one character proclaims — its first murder, setting off some jurisdictional confusion. Somehow, the United Nations gets involved, immediately dispatching an investigator (Gabriel Macht). The root of the murders has to do with loot from a newly discovered Soviet plane that crashed in 1957 in the middle of the Cold War. (Presumably, the plane’s pilots had taken that term literally.) There’s much that’s unbelievable about “Whiteout,” but nothing more so than the idea that someone can fight in minus-65 degree cold without anything to cover the face. But despite such flaws, “Whiteout” succeeds as a half-brained but intriguing whodunit. It’s not a fraction of “Fargo,” but its solid-enough performances and cool mood give it a noirish pulse in a novel, frozen land. RATED: R for violence, grisly images, brief strong language and some nudity. RUNNING TIME: 101 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.
In telling the story of the final years in the brief life of poet John Keats, this very easily could have been a stuffy, period costume drama. Instead, writer-director Jane Campion has fashioned a fascinating mix of contradictions. Her film is at once gritty and ethereal, grounded and romantic, quaint and contemporary. Those appealing contrasts extend to the casting choices, as well, with the pale, reserved Ben Whishaw playing off the vibrant, direct Abbie Cornish. One of the smartest moves Campion made was to focus on a short, pivotal period for Keats, rather than trying to construct a comprehensive (and potentially cursory) biopic. “Bright Star” follows the three-year relationship between the writer and Fanny Brawne, his next-door neighbor in Hampstead, north London. It was a time of great productivity for him, as we’d later come to appreciate, but it’s also when he experienced his only true love. Fanny, a flirty and style-obsessed 18-year-old, may not seem like an ideal fit for the 23-year-old Keats at first — and his collaborator Charles Brown, played by a brash and scenestealing Paul Schneider, does his best to exert his territoriality and keep them apart. But in time they become fascinated by the foreignness of each other, until they eventually become
October 1, 2009
inseparable. Physically, they never progress beyond handholding and a few chaste kisses, but the charge those acts carry is palpable. Like the dreamy white light that streams in from the windows of Fanny’s country home, the emotion of “Bright Star” bursts through the stillness and grabs you. RATED: PG for thematic elements, some sensuality, brief language and incidental smoking. RUNNING TIME: 119 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.
The exclamation point in the title is your first clue that Steven Soderbergh’s intentions here are more than a little askew. Then you notice Matt Damon’s helmet of hair, his pouf of a mustache, his corny sportswear and the paunch where the “Bourne” trilogy star ’s taut abs used to be. And once the strains of Marvin Hamlisch’s jaunty score begin — an ideal accompaniment to the faded, ‘70s-style cinematography — you know you’re in some vividly retro, comic parallel universe. “The Informant!” is about a serious, real-life subject — a whistle-blower who spied for the FBI to expose corporate corruption — only Soderbergh, directing a script by Scott Z. Burns, approaches it in the goofiest way, rather than as a serious drama like “The Insider” or even his own “Erin Brockovich.” It’s a kick, really, but it also keeps you guessing: Is Damon, as Mark Whitacre, just a regular guy who gets in over his head? Is he far more scheming and malevolent than his folksy Midwestern demeanor would suggest? Or is something else entirely going on here? Damon doesn’t just dig into the role physically. He also keeps you on your toes with Whitacre’s happy-golucky personality, a misplaced confidence that buoys him regardless of the situation, coupled with a surprisingly high comfort level for duplicity. One of the neatest tricks that throws us off course is Whitacre’s running interior monologue: a series of voiceovers in which he provides stream-of-consciousness musings on everything from indoor pools to the Japanese word for tuna.

The second screenplay from Diablo Cody following her debut smash “Juno” is so chock full of her quirky trademarks, it almost plays like a parody of something she’d write. The self-consciously clever dialogue, the gratuitous pop-culture references, the made-up phrases intended to convey a specific high school ethos — they’re all there. Even though fembot Megan Fox is an excellent fit to spit out these witty quips, it’s all so familiar, it makes you wonder whether Cody has
any other weapons in her arsenal. Part of the allure of the Showtime series Cody created, “The United States of Tara” — beyond the versatility of star Toni Collette — is the humor she finds in everyday suburbia, the reality and the absurdity. And that’s the best part of “Jennifer’s Body,” too. Never mind that it’s a mash-up of horror flick and teen comedy: When her characters talk about regular stuff like awkward adolescent sex and high-school dances, it’s funny in a relatable way. It’s when Cody tries too hard to dazzle us that she loses her footing; meanwhile, director Karyn Kusama struggles in her own way to find the right tone. The result: “Jennifer’s Body” is never scary and only sporadically amusing. Fox is a great choice, though, to play Jennifer, the queen bee in the small town of Devil’s Kettle. One night, after attending a concert by her favorite band that goes disastrously awry, Jennifer seems ... different. This is immediately obvious to her childhood best friend, the nerdy Needy (Amanda Seyfried). But soon the whole town knows something’s wrong when boys’ bodies start turning up eviscerated. RATED: R for sexuality, bloody violence, language and brief drug use. RUNNING TIME: 100 min. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.
Love supposedly happens here. We’ll have to take their word for it. Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston are so utterly lacking in chemistry with each other (and they’re both pretty bland individually) that it’s hard to discern any genuine emotion. What first-time director Brandon Camp gives us instead is a cliche-addled romantic drama that’s short on both romance and drama, one that’s filled with soggy platitudes and contrived catharsis. Camp also wrote the script with Mike Thompson, which contains such unimaginative, heavyhanded metaphors as walking across hot coals, shopping at Home Depot as a means of rebuilding a life and setting a bird free in the woods. It’s a painfully earnest slog reminiscent of such gooey fare as “Pay It Forward,” one that belongs on cable, if anywhere, and probably wouldn’t even have seen the light of day theatrically if not for the involvement of its two main stars. Eckhart plays self-help guru Burke Ryan, a widower who wrote a book about coping with loss after his wife’s death in a car accident three years ago. Now he’s a nationwide sensation, playing to sold-out crowds at cultlike seminars and helping others work through their own grief. Aniston co-stars as a florist named Eloise, who creates the flower arrangements at the hotel where Burke’s Seattle workshops are taking place. Both are apprehensive about falling in love again, which means that naturally they’re meant to do so with each other. RATED: PG-13 for some language including sexual references. RUNNING TIME: 110 min.Z ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: zero stars out of four.

“Whiteout” is a washout By JAKE COYLE Associated Press In the new cold-blooded suspense flick “Whiteout,” the actress plays Carrie Stetko, a U.S. Marshall posted at a remote base in Antarctica. Yes, the movies have returned to our southernmost continent: “Whiteout” follows in the webbed footsteps of “March of the Penguins” and Werner Herzog, who traveled there for last year’s “Encounters at the End of the World.” This time, there’s nary a penguin in sight (though even amid all that cold, the movie still finds a way to squeeze in a steamy, gratuitous shower scene). Laughably, a subtitle informs the audience early on with that Antarctica is “the coldest, most isolated land mass.” Never mind that the film was actually shot in Canada. Soon enough, Antarctica has — as one character proclaims — its first murder, which is followed by another, setting off some jurisdictional confusion. Somehow, the United Nations gets involved, immediately dispatching an investigator (Gabriel Macht). Stetko and her friend, Doc (Tom Skerritt), are eager to end their stay in Antarctica, but the explosion of violence comes just as winter is about to set in, meaning the last planes are about to leave. The murders — one victim is found in the middle of nowhere, frozen to the ice — also set off flashbacks for Setko. As a drug investigator in Miami, she was betrayed by her partner and nearly killed. This has, understandably enough, given her some trust issues. The root of the murders has to do
In this image released by Warner Bros. Pictures, Kate Beckinsale is shown in a scene from “Whiteout.” with loot from a newly discovered Soviet plane that crashed in 1957 in the middle of the Cold War. (Presumably, the plane’s pilots had taken that term literally.) There’s much that’s unbelievable about “Whiteout,” but nothing more so than the idea that someone can fight in minus-65 degree cold without anything to cover the face. Also, Stetko’s parka looks more
fashionable than functional. But despite such flaws, “Whiteout” succeeds as a halfbrained but intriguing whodunit. It’s not a fraction of “Fargo,” but its solid-enough performances and cool mood give it a noirish pulse. The story’s thin cliches come from a graphic novel by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber. Director Dominic Sena (“Swordfish”) keeps
the style from being too flashy and cinematographer Chris Soos has fun with the dark, wintery landscapes and flashlight beams. The film benefits from the novelty of its setting — the eery emptiness and isolated science labs that can be reached only by plane. Basic movement is difficult — especially so when an ice pickwielding lunatic is chasing you.
Beckinsale has shown flashes in films like “The Last Days of Disco,” “Laurel Canyon” and “Snow Angels,” but her blockbuster efforts such as “Underworld” and “Whiteout” feel like desperate grabs for above-the-line stardom. Surely by now, she’s earned the right to avoid unnecessary shower scenes. But, baby, it’s cold outside.
“Jennifer’s Body” gets high marks By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge “Jennifer ’s Body” is a film about best friends. It doesn’t surprise me much, considering that the concept of “best friends” is something that seems to fit in with screenwriter Diablo Cody’s style. I’ve been an avid reader of Cody’s semi-regular column in a certain weekly entertainment publication since she started it, following an Oscar win for 2007’s “Juno.” The quirky, tattooed child of the ‘80s has emerged as a role model for folks like me who love “WarGames”, considered attending the NKOTB reunion concert, and understand that references to popular culture are the lifeblood of engaging an audience. In the case of her new movie, the best friends Diablo Cody has created for us are Needy (Amanda Seyfried) and Jennifer (Megan Fox). They’re as different as night and day.
October 1, 2009
“Jennifer’s Body” RATED: R for sexuality, bloody violence, language, and brief drug use. ROBERT’S RANKING: three stars out of four.
One is a mousy, frizzy-haired girl who is perfectly happy being the arm candy for her sickly beautiful, hopelessly charmless, classmate. It’s this type of loyalty that every person who has a legitimate, honest-to-goodness “best friend” relishes. It’s the shorthand language, the communicative glances, and the all-hours telephone calls that make Needy and Jennifer, who is actually the needy one, inseparable.
Needy is more complete as a character, especially in her relationships with her mother (Amy Sedaris) and her boyfriend, Chip (Johnny Simmons), but most of the focus is on the titular Jennifer and, of course, her body. After a terrible tragedy in their North Country hometown of Devil’s Kettle (which, I gather, is in a fictional mid-region of Wisconsin), Jennifer starts to change. Her flawless complexion, shimmering eyes, and any number of perky physical attributes undergo a cyclical, monthly deterioration, turning the flag team standout into a pale, sunken-eyed, (gasp!) average-looking girl. A few stunning jolts of self-doubting dénouement and ill-placed exposition, my only criticisms of the film, lead Needy to form a link between the changes in Jennifer and the timing of two grisly murders. The mutilation of two random boys from their school (including Veronica Mars vet Kyle Gallner) force Needy and the
audience to the realization that Jennifer must certainly be a boy-eating demon, and not just the boy-crazy high school tramp we already know her to be. Bonus points for connecting the demon mythology with a boy band’s success sacrifice gone wrong. Adam Brody (who, according to my best friend, would play me in the movie of my life) portrays the band’s clueless frontman. Several especially bloody scenes eschew this film’s horror genre aspirations, though it’s not necessarily scary enough to pick itself up by its supernatural bootstraps and get over that hump. E i t h e r w a y, i t i s j a m m e d t o t h e h i l t with rat-a-tat dialogue, a healthy bit of same-sex smooching, and J.K. Simmons sporting both a wild wig and one prosthetic hand. I won’t swear that my best friend will like this movie, but if we saw it together then I’m sure she’d have a great time. That’s part of the deal.

Mango’s The taste of Peru in downtown St. Louis BY PAM DJELIDI Of The Edge Friendly and flavorful describe the atmosphere and food choices at the new location of Mango’s Peruvian restaurant just off Washington Street in the former Mosaic premises. Despite the high loft ceilings the hardwood floors and soft lighting made the bar area seem intimate without being crowded. In fact the kitchen, pristine and well lighted, is open to the bar area. You can drink and socialize while watching the activity and inhaling the aromas of home cooking with a unique edge.
The citrus overtones are predominating in the tart marinades and then fresh fruit and vegetables are used to cleanse the palate. First have a
“Pisco Sour” a Peruvian drink that has a lime bite with a little more substance than a Margarita. Then knock back a tilapia “shooter” marinated with onion and cilantro. Another seasoning used on the beef and chicken skewers is “ Aji Amarillo”. The savory almond aftertaste was very subtle and the presentation plentiful. But, my favorite tasty treats were the mini turnovers filled with beef, raisins and Spanish olives and the little spinach pies baked with onions, mushrooms and cheeses. Since this was the official opening of this new location the Latin ritual of blessing the new business was performed by family Priest Father Bob
Mennen in a bilingual ceremony with guest participation. The owners Jorge Calvo and Paul Sawchak circulated with family members including 3-month-old Ella, Jorge’s granddaughter, to welcome attendees and thank them for coming. Soft jazz background music was provided by well know regional keyboard player Reggie Thomas and Clarinetist Scott Albericia . The presence of extended family help make the party conversation warm and informal. Clearly families will be welcome not just accommodated. I suspect that this venue will see a wealth of return visits as a goumet-dining destination or as a neighborhood hangout.

Dining Delights Grow your own groceries By TRACY HOBSON LEHMANN San Antonio Express-News For the curious gardener, a trip to the grocery store can be the start of something more than dinner. The aisles can yield cuttings and seeds that, with a little TLC, a healthy dose of patience and ample luck, will sprout into productive plants. The operative word: productive. Those who have toothpick-supported sweet potatoes and avocado seeds in glasses on the windowsill can appreciate plants that will bear something other than leaves. Papaya The pea-size black seeds inside the fleshy papaya grow easily. Scoop out the mass of seeds, clean them thoroughly and allow them to dry a few weeks. March is the best time to plant a single seed in a 1-gallon pot. Place it in a partly sunny spot and water it when the leaves droop. It’s a tropical plant, so bring it inside through fall and winter. In late spring, when the plant is a year old and about 6 feet tall, put it in the ground. You’ll be harvesting papayas by July. Ginger Those gnarly brown roots sold in grocery stores as fresh ginger are rhizomes. So the next time you bring one home for stir fry, snap off a piece and plant it. Choose a firm piece without bruises, and cut or break off a piece with nodes. Let the pieces dry for a few days, then plant them in a 12- to 14-inch pot that’s about three-quarters full of rich potting mix. Cover them with an inch of soil. Place them in filtered sunlight, and keep the soil moist. Sprouts will appear in a few weeks.
The mature plants, which look like bamboo, will be 2 to 4 feet tall. After a season, harvest pieces of the rhizome that appear above the soil. The tender stems can be used in stir fries. A tropical plant, this ginger needs frost protection. Pineapple Growing a pineapple might test your patience, but with time about 18 months you get fruit. Twist or cut the leafy crown off a firm, ripe fruit. Pull off leaves nearest the crown, then remove any flesh, and allow to dry for a few days. Set the crown about an inch deep in a 5-gallon pot filled with sandy soil. Keep the soil moist for a few days, then water a few times a week. Overwatering will doom your plant. These tropical plants like sun and a monthly feeding with liquid fertilizer. The plant will grow to about 4 feet wide. Lentils You can do more with dried legumes than soak and boil them. Toss a few mung beans, lentils or some fenugreek in some water and see what pops up. If you follow the directions they are simple, but the margin for error is slim you will be harvesting sprouts for salads and sandwiches in a matter of days. Put about 2 tablespoons of seeds in a clear jar, either glass or plastic. Add two to three times more cool water than seeds, then cover the jar with cheesecloth and place it in a warm location. The top of the refrigerator works well. Twice a day, drain and rinse the seeds until the water is clear. Lentils will produce sprouts in about five days, mung beans in three or four.

Dining Delights Chef turns to Twitter, Facebook for ideas By MICHAEL HILL Associated Press Twitter and Facebook are helping Rocco DiSpirito write his new cookbook. The media savvy chef is turning to the social networks to help decide which dishes he should include in his new book, devoted to healthy versions of popular dishes. He's asking fans directly for their opinions, like in this recent query: "How important is pulled pork and chocolate chip cookies to you for inclusion in my healthy food makeover cookbook?" Tweets and posts with suggestions came flowing back (with a strong pro-pork sentiment on Facebook). It may sound like a publicity gimmick for the interactive age, but DiSpirito says the experiment in culinary cyber-populism will make his cookbook more relevant and will hopefully inspire more people to pick up a spatula. "If your job is to make someone who wants to cook at home feel
like they really can, then you owe it to them to figure out what they want," DiSpirito said in a telephone interview. The cookbook, which is due March 2 and lacks a final title, consists of healthier versions of what DiSpirito calls America's favorite "downfall dishes," those beloved but often unwholesome foods like burgers, enchiladas, mac and cheese and fried chicken. DiSpirito's self-imposed creative challenge was to shave off calories o r c a r b s f ro m c l a s s i c d i s h e s without making them taste like cardboard. His re-tinkered burger patty, for instance, includes lean beef mixed with turkey. His "unfried" chicken is de-skinned, poached, coated with low-fat breading, then flash fried in grape seed oil. DiSpirito is keeping control in the kitchen. But he thought it natural to crowdsource for a cookbook that includes the phrase "most popular dishes," even if it plays against the stereotype of the chef as a culinary
autocrat. Collaborative cookbooks are nothing new, though most are compilations of recipes from multiple sources like the old community cookbooks or the Brass sisters' recent collections of heirloom recipes. Pam Fradkin, who tracks trends as a customer service representative for the online cookbook store Jessica's Biscuit at ecookbooks.com, said modern takes on "comfort foods" are big right now. The use of social media during the cookbook's creation is new, she said. "This is different," Fradkin said. "The social media allows for very immediate gratification of what you want now, not necessarily of what you've wanted for the past 10 years." DiSpirito has a highbrow pedigree that includes an education at the Culinary Institute of America and a
successful stint heading the threestar Union Pacific restaurant in New York City. But he's always been open to mixing it up with the masses. He gained widespread recognition in 2003 with the reality TV show "The Restaurant." The series, which lasted for two seasons, chronicled the rise and fall of his second restaurant. He's hardly been a stranger to TV since then — he even did a samba routine on "Dancing with the Stars." It's no surprise that DiSpirito has embraced the possibilities of social media. There are a bunch of celebrity chefs who tweet or post, among them Bobby Flay, Jamie Oliver, Giada De Laurentiis and Rick Bayless. Some, like Bayless, actually respond to tweeters seeking cooking tips. But many celebrity chef updates consist of little more than where they travel,
when their TV shows are airing and what they ate for breakfast. DiSpirito is taking advantage of the give-and-take nature of Twitter and Facebook. Who knew people were looking for a healthy remake of stodgy, old beef Wellington? DiSpirito certainly didn't — until fans told him. DiSpirito is among the many p ro f e s s i o n a l s c o n c e r n e d t h a t Americans love their food shows and celebrity chefs but don't regularly cook and invite people over for meals. He hopes his new book will address the participation problem by getting fans involved in the creative process. "My feeling is that chefs have done a great job over the last 15 years of getting everyone all frothy at the mouth about the subject of food and wine and cooking and entertaining at home," he said.

Dining Delights 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! 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. 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. 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, 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 men, 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.

Swayze's memoirs released NEW YORK (AP) — “Dirty Dancing” made Patrick Swayze a superstar, but when he first read the script, he found it a little clean. The actor, who died Sept. 14 of cancer, writes in his memoir, “It seemed fluffy — nothing more than a summer-camp movie.” The memoir “The Time of My Life” comes out next week. S w a y z e ’ s re a c t i o n w a s c o m p l e t e l y d i ff e re n t about another future smash, “Ghost.” He immediately wanted to be in it and
persuaded Jerry Zucker to cast him despite the director ’s skepticism that Swayze could play a sensitive leading man. Swayze also remembered working with a thenlittle known Tom Cruise in Francis Coppola’s adaptation of the young adult classic “The Outsiders.” C ru i s e , S w a y z e s a i d , w a s s o " s e l f - c o n s c i o u s about his teeth" that he resisted magazine photo shoots.
