Ted Frisbie examines an old iron bell rescued from the Quercus Grove Schoolhouse for a date of origin or manufacture.

Old school bell will be displayed By STEVE HORRELL Of The Edge The cast iron bell that signaled Larry Brown and his classmates at the old Quercus Grove School that it was time to come in from recess will be on display starting next month at the Madison County Historical Society near downtown Edwardsville. The bell dropped out of its belfry during a fire two years ago that destroyed not only the belfry but much of the one-room schoolhouse. The Quercus Grove Rural Club, which had bought the 2-acre site from Madison County in 1984, has since sold slate chalkboards, chairs and other relics from the school, but the bell continues to be stored at a house across the street. Ted Frisbie estimates its weight at 200 pounds, and its diameter, at the bottom, at about 30 inches. Frisbie, who lives in Edwardsville and taught anthropology for three decades at SIUE before retiring in 1997, has spent years researching the history of Quercus Grove School.

October 8, 2009

Recently he discovered that the original schoolhouse opened July 13, 1868. That discovery came during his research of transcripts belonging to a man who had lived across the street. “He was still alive when the foundation was being poured,” Frisbie said. “The bell was probably made that year.” It was hoisted up to the belfry again when the school was rebuilt, in 1937. Norma Meyer attended the school from first through eighth grades, starting in 1940. Two years ago, she told the Intelligencer that during the winter months teachers allowed students to skate on the pond behind the school, and sometimes she allowed one of them to ring the bell, calling them all back to class. Larry Brown attended the school from the first through the fourth grades. “The teacher would go in the library and pull the rope for recess,” he recalled on Thursday. “Once in a while somebody would be allowed to ring it.” The bell already had a crack in it before the

2007 fall, he said. Now it has a second. “The Liberty Bell has one,” Frisbie said. “We’re one up on them.” The club recently bought back about 350 bricks that were at the old school, and Frisbie wants a 4-foot by 4-foot cube to be made with them, upon which the bell would rest. One side would have a dedicatory stone, and a 20-inch by 20-inch bronze plaque upon which the bell’s history is inscribed. Frisbie has already signed papers donating the bell, and the bell’s papers, over to the museum. MCHS President Joyce Williams could not be reached for comment. The Quercus Grove Rural Club meets next month to determine which of 14 local not-forprofit entities will be awarded $80,000 the club realized from the sale of the Quercus Grove property. By then, museum officials may have already decided where they want the bell to be displayed. Asked whether had a location in mind, Frisbie said only, “Somewhere outside on the grounds.”

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-ofa-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 Vision of Abraham Lincoln, 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. 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 PresidentElect 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 the Bible, and the ceremony 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 31, 1799; the introduction of 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.  It was also used at the opening of the present Masonic Hall in New York City on September 18, 1909.  More recently it was featured at the World’s Fair in New York, has

been displayed at the CIA Offices outside Washington DC, and at the Famous Fathers & Sons exhibition at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library near Dallas, TX in 2001. The Bible is still in active use by the Lodge. When not being used by St. John’s Lodge or on tour, it is on display at Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York City.

Porter’s Steakhouse to host Oktoberfest A taste of Germany is coming to Collinsville. For the first time, the Doubletree Hotel Collinsville a n d P o r t e r ’ s S t e a k h o u s e a re

celebrating Oktoberfest on Oct. 22 from 5 to 9 pm. The celebration taking place on the hotel’s lush new outdoor terrace, will include live music by Johnny Chase and all food and beverage for just $25 per person. The real Oktoberfest is a traditional 16-day Bavarian celebration dating back to 1810 and hosted annually in Munich, Germany. While this celebration will be far shorter, it will feature many of the same types of food and beverage. Porter’s Steakhouse C h e f , J o n a t h a n H o ff m a n , h a s created a menu including traditional favorites such as mini rouladen, sauerbraten, potato p a n c a k e s , s a u s a g e s a m p l e r, spaetzel and red cabbage. There will even be mini apple struedels to top it off. In Germany, no

Oktoberfest celebration is complete without “brezel,” so local baker Companion will be on hand with their brand new Bavarian-style pretzel sticks served with their famous mustard dipping sauce and a homemade cheese fondue. In keeping with another Oktoberfest tradition, the Mayor of Collinsville, John Miller, will tap the inaugural keg of the evening, which will be St. Louis’ own Schlafly Beer. The event will feature a variety of the brewers’ flavorsome fall beers. The Doubletree Hotel Collinsville re-opened in March 2009 after a massive renovation headed up by new owners, St. Louis-based Lodging Hospitality Management. To m a k e a r e s e r v a t i o n f o r Oktoberfest, please contact Aimee Wyatt-Smith at 618-345-2800.

People People planner MOBOT presents “Losing Paradise” “Losing Paradise? Endangered Plants Here and Around the World,” an exhibition of botanical artworks, will be on display at the Missouri Botanical Garden from Oct. 1 through Nov. 15. The exhibit will be displayed on the upper level of the Ridgway Visitor Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and is included with Garden admission. The free opening program, sponsored by the Garden in conjunction with the Center for Plant Conservation takes place on Oct. 7 at 5:45 p.m.  in Shoenberg Theater and includes remarks by Dr. Peter H. Raven, president of the Missouri Botanical Garden; Carol Woodin, exhibitions coordinator for the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA); Dr. Kathryn Kennedy, executive director of the Center for Plant Conservation (CPC); and Dr. Matthew Albrecht, conservation biologist at the Missouri Botanical Garden. A reception will be held on the upper level of the Ridgway Visitor Center immediately following the program with hors d’oeuvres, wine and conversation. The opening event is free and open to the public.

Featuring 44 botanical artworks of endangered plants, the traveling exhibition is celebrating its national opening at the Missouri Botanical Garden. The juried exhibition was curated by the ASBA in collaboration with the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Works by some of the world’s most well-known botanical artists are included, as are pieces by some relative newcomers to the field. Technical assistance was provided by the Center for Plant Conservation, which is based in St. Louis, and many artworks portray subjects in its National Collection of Endangered Plants. In order to highlight the beauty and the stories of the world’s at-risk plants, artists sought out these endangered plants in botanical gardens, in the field and in horticultural collections. About half of the plants represented are from around the world and half are North American, including such fascinating plant stories as that of Utah’s dwarf bearclaw poppy (Arctomecon humilis), one of the rarest poppies in the world and one of the first species in the United States to be listed as endangered in 1979, and the Wollemi pine (Wollemia nobilis), thought to be extinct for 2 million years but found in a remote Australian canyon.

The exhibition and accompanying book ($29.95) are the result of a three-year project undertaken by ASBA members from the United States, Australia, Israel, Brazil, South Korea, South Africa and the United Kingdom. Many of these artists will attend the opening event. Dr. Peter Raven wrote the book’s introduction, and Dr. Kathryn Kennedy contributed an essay. In addition to the opening program and reception, the Garden hosts a Beginning Botanical Painting -- Autumn Gourds class on Oct. 8 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. During this course, visiting artist Marilyn Garber, president of the ASBA and founder of the Minnesota School of Botanical Art, teaches the basic techniques used in traditional botanical watercolor painting. Some materials will be provided; students should bring a pencil, eraser, notebook, two small containers to hold water and a sack lunch to the class. Registration is $75 for Garden members and $85 for non-members. The class will be held in the first-floor conference room of the Monsanto Center, located at 4500 Shaw Boulevard at the intersection of Shaw and Vandeventer. Pre-registration is required at www. mobot.org/classes.

Music

Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers Rockers scheduled to appear at Blueberry Hill By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge A fun music group is heading to St. Louis and while you may not recognize the name so quickly, you will likely recognize their sound. Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers are a searing rock and roll foursome from Arizona who have achieved great recording success and fierce fan loyalty. Touted “the best live band in America” by the New Haven Register, Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers bring their popular live show back to Blueberry Hill in St Louis on Thursday, Oct. 15, with The Coal Men opening. You may not have realized it, but you have likely heard the band yourself – if you have ever watched “King of the Hill” (Clyne did the ever-popular theme song) or listened to the ‘90s band The Refreshments (Clyne headed the band and penned many songs on their Heatseekers No. 1 album featuring “Banditos” and “Down Together.”). These guys are not some little indie band trying to make it. They’ve been there, done that, and are now doing it their way, and loving the party on the way. The band, which has had six

For The Edge

Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers albums debut in the top 10 of Billboards Internet Sales Chart, has opened for John Fogerty, Kid Rock, Sammy Hagar, Willie Nelson and more, and at their wildly-popular annual south-of-the-border bash Circus Mexicus in Rocky Point, Mexico (which has drawn thousands of fans -- from every state and 15 countries), RCPM turned the tables and had bands like Cross Canadian Ragweed open for them.

Along with hundreds of dates on the road, this year has marked record ticket sales at concerts i n Tu c s o n a n d L a s Ve g a s , appearances at Major League Baseball Arizona Diamondbacks games (RCPM wrote/recorded the team’s official fight song), and a performance and guest panel position at the Americana Music Festival in Nashville, Tenn. The band’s current web-

only release, “Glow In The Dark,” is available now at www. azpeacemakers.com. Tom Jurek of Paste Magazine says “Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers (RCPM) are proof that the crazy, reckless, restless, swaggering soul of American rock is still burning a hole in the night sky – guitars blaze, quake and quiver, drums slip, thud and thunder with killer melodies and hooks and the occasional reggae

or mariachi rhythm laced through the middle to keep it all honest and interesting.” Blueberry Hill is located at 6504 Delmar, in University City, in The Loop. For information about Blueberry Hill, call 314-727-4444 or visit www.BlueberryHill.com. For tickets, call 800-745-3000 or visit www.ticketmaster.com. Shows are limited to ages 21 and up. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Band Bio: The Darrin James Band By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Members: David Johnsen,, Bill Mead, Darrin James, Jordan Shapiro Playing Stagger Inn on Thursday, Oct. 8, 104 E. Vandalia, Edwardsville. Darrin James has been a guitarist for 15 years and a songwriter for just under a decade, drawing on his love for blues, soul, country and other roots genres to create songs with a timeless quality. “As a songwriter, I have wanted to combine honest, dark lyrics with old school blues and a fusion of styles, to express the emotions and stories of tragic or flawed characters.” Darrin has succeeded mightily at this aim with his debut album, “Thrones of Gold.” “The Lovely Ugly Truth” is the follow up album, and it’s filled with parables that illustrate moral dilemmas and regret, outlaw

stories, murder ballads and even a contemporary protest song that confronts the immigration debate. The tracks were recorded between 2007 and 2009 in numerous studios in New York by Matt Gill, who has worked w i t h b a n d s l i k e F i s c h e r s p o o n e r, Aimee Mann, The Raveonettes and Aqualung. Taking up guitar at 13, James’ main focus was playing blues, which gave way to jazz, folk and world music. He began playing shows as a teenager, playing lead guitar for many local acts in Michigan. After moving to Ann Arbor in 1996 he met some of his future band mates and collaborators, including Jordan Shapiro, Stuart Bogie, Jeremy Bronson and Matt Gill. In 2002 he formed the Darrin James Band to perform his growing repertoire of original songs. To learn more or to hear some of the DJB original songs, visit www.

Music Tuning in “Cinderbottom” to be featured at SIUE A Season for the Child (SfC), the family-oriented live theater season sponsored by the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Friends of Theater and Dance (FOTAD) and TheBANK of Edwardsville, opens its 20th season with a delightful musical, Cinderbottom, based on the tried and true fairytale, Cinderella, on Saturday, Oct. 24. The performance will begin at 7 p.m. that Saturday in the theater in SIUE’s Katherine Dunham Hall. The first FOTAD season premiered in 1990. SfC features professional theater troupes from St. Louis staging adaptations of various children’s stories, using interactive techniques that not only delight children and parents, but also provide a learning experience. Cinderbottom, to be performed by Piwacket Theater for Children, extols a message of kindness in the story about the young girl with the wicked stepmother and her equally wicked daughters. FOTAD, a support group for the SIUE Department of Theater and Dance, uses proceeds from the family theater series to help fund merit awards for talented SIUE theater and dance students. Each year, the organization awards some $5,000 in merit scholarships to qualified students.FOTAD also funds scholarships for new freshmen entering the theater and dance program. The support organization also has an endowment to help fund the merit scholarship program. Those interested in donating to the endowment may contact Greg Conroy, (618) 692-0874. Subscription tickets are $16 for four shows, a $4 savings; if purchased by Oct. 1, the season tickets are $12, an $8 savings.

OCTOBER: SPINAL HEALTH CARE MONTH. Chiropractors regard a healthy spine as important as good nutrition for general good health. Vertebral misalignments or fixations (subluxations) are very common and often do not cause pain. Symptoms are not a good way to judge health. Sometimes they appear much later. (How many times have you been told you have a cavity and haven’t experienced any pain?) A person can benefit from a healthy spine, no matter what his or her health status is. Chiropractic is not just about treating low back pain, but about making a fundamental change in the way the body works. That’s why doctors of chiropractic suggest spinal checkups for all members of the family. Help awaken your inner being by calling for a chiropractic spinal check-up today at (618) 656-0178.

“The Boys Are Back”

This true-life drama delicately and deftly finds a balance that’s hard to strike: It depicts death, and the way a family rebuilds and redefines itself afterward, without any mawkishness. Director Scott Hicks’ film, with its dreamlike, sun-splashed landscapes of Southern Australia, is visually arresting (the work of cinematographer Greig Fraser, who recently shot Jane Campion’s luminous “Bright Star”). But the content of Allan Cubitt’s script, based on the memoir by Simon Carr, is meaty and straightforward, which gives it an unexpected power. This is easily Hicks’ best film since the Oscar-winning “Shine” way back in 1996 (since then his work has included the admirable but uneven “Hearts in Atlantis” and “No Reservations”), and much of the allure comes from Clive Owen’s complex performance. As a man learning how to function as a single father after the death of his wife, Owen shows great liveliness but also a natural vulnerability. His character, sportswriter Joe Warr, takes a “Just Say Yes” attitude in raising his 6-year-old son (Nicholas McAnulty, disarming in his film debut), which makes for a lot of fun but it also results in chaos. Joe’s frustration in figuring out this whole parenting thing by himself provides inescapable reminders of Dustin Hoffman in “Kramer vs. Kramer”: Once again we have two men sharing a home, realizing they don’t really know each other and unsure of how to relate as they work through their grief. But then the arrival of Harry (George MacKay), Joe’s teenage son from his first marriage, changes the dynamic all over again. RATED: PG-13 for some sexual language and thematic elements. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“Coco Before Chanel”

The young Coco Chanel noticed style everywhere, even in the crisp white and basic black of the nuns’ habits at the orphanage where she was raised. “Coco Before Chanel” has a similarly keen eye for appearances, but there’s not a whole lot of passion or insight beneath the surface. Director Anne Fontaine’s film, which she wrote with her sister, Camille, traces the early years of the fashion designer who would come to define a bold kind of feminine style throughout the 20th century, one that was as no-nonsense as the woman herself. We see her in her early 20s as a struggling seamstress and parttime singer fending off advances from drunken soldiers, then as the live-in lover to a playboy racehorse owner, and finally as an independent woman honing her skills and refining her look. Audrey Tautou has great appeal as Gabrielle Chanel — Coco, as she was known — presenting the designer ’s feistiness not as bravado but as a straightforward reflection of how she felt. Of course, Tautou looks adorably chic in

October 8, 2009

Chanel’s clothes, with her petite, androgynous frame and big, brown eyes. Still, you wonder what moved her, aside from the simplicity of the men’s outfits that would inspire her own suits and hats. While living with the randy Etienne Balsan (Benoit Poelvoorde), functioning as his “geisha,” as he liked to call her, she supposedly was in love with his friend, Arthur “Boy” Capel (Alessandro Nivola), but even her involvement in that relationship seems almost passive. RATED: PG-13 for sexual content and smoking. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“The Damned United”

You don’t have to be a soccer expert, or even know much about the sport, to get sucked into the competing personalities and personal dramas depicted here. Sure, it probably helps in terms of appreciating some of the details and nuances, especially if you’re a fan of British football. But director Tom Hooper doesn’t include very much action on the field: “The Damned United” is more about the larger-than-life figures behind the scenes, mainly Brian Clough, the real-life manager of Leeds United for a brief and tumultuous period in 1974. And you don’t even have to know who Clough was to care about him. As he did with his brilliant and underappreciated supporting work as Tony Blair in “The Queen” and David Frost “Frost/Nixon,” Michael Sheen brings this cocky coach vividly to life. It is such a joy to see him grab hold of a starring role like this, and to see him work once again with screenwriter Peter Morgan, who wrote those earlier films. Morgan has an uncanny knack for taking powerful and polarizing leaders and making us see them in a totally new and humanistic light. He did it with Queen Elizabeth II, Richard Nixon and, in “The Last King of Scotland,” Idi Amin. Clough won’t be nearly as well-known to American audiences but Morgan shows us his foibles, his vulnerability, which should make him compelling to anyone. Based on David Peace’s novel, “The Damned United” jumps back and forth between Clough’s hiring as the new Leeds coach, after the departure of the beloved Don Revie (Colm Meaney) for the English national team, and the unlikely rise Clough enjoyed with perennial cellar-dwellers. RATED: R for language. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Three stars out of four.

“Fame”

This “reinvention” of the 1980 high school musical — please, people, don’t call it a remake — stays faithful to the spirit and structure of Alan Parker’s original while sucking out all the raciness. There’s no nudity in the new “Fame,” no one gets an abortion. No one even lights a single cigarette. But at the same time, dancer and choreographer Kevin Tancharoen, making his feature directing debut, doesn’t turn “Fame” into the kind of

slick, overly edited eye candy you might expect. It’s stylized, yes, and it movies really fluidly while still maintaining some urban grittiness. And in a world where people aspire for instant recognition by making idiots of themselves on reality TV, there’s something sort of quaint about the idea of working hard for artistic glory. Starting with Debbie Allen’s famous “You got big dreams, you want fame” speech over the opening titles, “Fame” follows a group of aspiring singers, dancers, actors and musicians from their auditions for New York’s High School of Performing Arts until their graduation four years later. Among the familiar types are Denise (Naturi Naughton), a classically trained pianist who longs to branch out creatively; shy actress Jenny (Kay Panabaker); the privileged dancer Alice (Kherington Payne); the shticky wannabe film director Neil (Paul Iacono); and the misunderstood actor-rapper Mailk (Collins Pennie). Among the faculty are Kelsey Grammer as the stern but fair piano teacher; Bebe Neuwirth, formidable as always as a dance instructor, Megan Mullally as a voice coach and Allen herself, in all of two scenes, as the school’s principal. RATED: PG for thematic material including teen drinking, a sexual situation and language. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“Surrogates”

Itself a kind of surrogate, “Surrogates” is a stand-in for many of the sci-fi movies of the recent past: In it, you’ll recognize the ideas of “Blade Runner,” ‘’Minority Report” and even “WALL-E.” In a quasi-present day Boston, nearly everyone has a surrogate — a younger, thinner, cosmetically perfect robotic version of themselves. They’re controlled while you’re reclining at home and plugged into a machine. This means, most importantly, that we have a blond Bruce Willis on our hands. Willis is an FBI agent who, along with his partner (Radha Mitchell), is trying to solve two murders which, though committed on surrogates, also “liquefied” the brains of their human operators. Having a robotic stand-in has some obvious perks: Sexuality is less inhibited. If you fall, you don’t scrape your elbows. And if your helicopter crashes, you don’t die. But this crime-less utopia is also a superficial wasteland, devoid of meaningfulness. “Surrogates,” directed by Jonathan Mostow (“Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines”), is adapted from a graphic novel by Robert Venditti. Graphic novels are — for better or worse — the new pulp fiction. Like those hard-boiled novels of the ‘40s that Hollywood couldn’t get enough of, graphic novels are fueling what once would have been called B-movies. At its best, that’s what “Surrogates” is: a quality B-movie, pulpy and reflective of its times. The film isn’t shy about its feelings about technology — it’s time to unplug. But dreams of a computer-less society are as much fantasy as a blond Bruce Willis. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence, disturbing images, language, sexuality and a drug-related scene ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four.

“Fame” – a reinvention, not a remake By JAKE COYLE Associated Press LOS ANGELES (AP) — The “reinvention” of the 1980 high school musical “Fame” — please, people, don’t call it a remake — stays faithful to the spirit and structure of Alan Parker’s original while sucking out all the raciness. There’s no nudity in this PG-rated version, no one gets an abortion. No one even lights a single cigarette. So no, it’s not exactly the most realistic depiction of modern high-school life. But at the same time, dancer and choreographer Kevin Tancharoen, making his feature directing debut, doesn’t turn “Fame” into the kind of slick, overly edited eye candy you might expect. It’s stylized, yes, and it movies really fluidly while still maintaining some urban grittiness. And in a world where people aspire for instant recognition by making idiots of themselves on reality TV, there’s still something appealing about the idea of working hard for artistic glory — potentially failing and suffering rejection, but persevering nonetheless. Starting with Debbie Allen’s famous “you got big dreams, you want fame” speech over the opening titles, “Fame” follows a group of aspiring singers, dancers, actors and musicians from their auditions for New York’s competitive High School of Performing Arts until their graduation four years later. Among the familiar types are Denise (Naturi Naughton), a classically trained pianist who longs to branch out creatively; goodlooking Marco (Asher Book), who sings like Justin Timberlake; aspiring actress Jenny (Kay Panabaker), who’s too self-conscious; the privileged dancer Alice (Kherington

Associated Press

In this film publicity image released by MGM, dancers perform in a scene from, “Fame.” Payne); the shticky wannabe film director Neil (Paul Iacono); and the misunderstood actor-rapper Malik (Collins Pennie). Among the faculty are Kelsey Grammer as the stern but fair piano teacher and Bebe Neuwirth, formidable as always, as a dance instructor. (Frasier and Lilith don’t have any scenes together, sadly.) Megan Mullally plays a perky voice

coach and Allen herself, in all of two scenes, appears as the school’s principal. Some of these kids are obviously going to make it — they’re going to live forever, as the song goes — and some aren’t. It’s pretty easy to figure out. Similarly, you can see some of the plot developments coming from a mile away in Allison Burnett’s script, even if you’ve never seen

the original. You just know that the moment Denise’s strict parents see her on stage, singing in a way they never knew she could, they’ll achieve a newfound appreciation for her talent. Naughton, who played Lil’ Kim in “Notorious,” also sings the hell out of “Out Here on My Own,” the only song carried over from the original. (“Fame”

plays over the closing credits.) A n d u n d e r s t a n d a b l y, g i v e n Tancharoen’s background, the dance scenes dazzle. The mousey Jenny will flourish by senior year, the keyboard player who hates Bach will learn to enjoy classical music, and at some point they’ll all burst into spontaneous song and dance in the cafeteria. These are inescapable truisms.

You’re better off with the double feature By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge Is the story we see presented in “ S u r ro g a t e s ” t h e w a y o u r f u t u re w i l l actually turn out? Individuals will cease to socialize with one another and the fabric of society will be completely reduced to electronic interaction. That f u t u re i s a l re a d y h e re . “ S u r ro g a t e s ” hypothesizes that it’ll continue to spiral out of control to the point where we’ll create robots to go forth on our behalf instead of simply the on-screen avatars w e u s e n o w t h ro u g h t h e a u s p i c e s o f all social networking avenues like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. But I digress too far, because “Surrogates” is more or less a joke of a science fiction film and not the civic commentary I’ve suggested. T h e i d y l l i c e v e r y d a y i s s h a t t e re d , in a not too distant future, by a

October 8, 2009

h o m i c i d e , o n e w e ’ re l e d t o b e l i e v e i s the first in many years. That premise o f a h a r m o n i o u s t o m o r ro w i s n i c e t o c o n t e m p l a t e , b u t n o t w h e n y o u o v e rextrapolate the idea to include android “surrogates”, as director Jonathon Mostow has done with his new film. D e t e c t i v e s G r e e r ( B r u c e Wi l l i s ) a n d P e t e r s ( R a d h a M i t c h e l l ) a re a s s i g n e d to investigate how the electromagnetic d e s t r u c t i o n o f a s u r ro g a t e h a s k i l l e d its host as he sits peacefully in an armchair in his home. They’re forced to be discreet so as not to create a panic in the hundreds of millions of innocent operators around the world. Even the two good detectives use surrogates. That is, until Greer ’s is taken away during an internal investigation into his police work. He’s been at odds with both the administration and a rival s e c t o f h u m a n s ( l e d b y a h i p p y Vi n g Rhames) opposed to the robot lifestyle.

Neither end of the spectrum trusts him or his work to get to the bottom of what he sees as a greater conspiracy. “Surrogates” is similar in tone to The Matrix, but has none of the signature visual style that made that film both a landmark in special effects history and a blockbuster hit. Wi t h t h e o u t r a g e o u s p re m i s e a t t h e heart of this film I found it unrealistic that every character ’s surrogate simply looked like a younger version of themselves (and with more hair, in Willis’s case). I found no artistic license here to be the most unrealistic part of a completely unrealistic movie. “Surrogates” runs 96 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence, disturbing images, language, sexuality, and a drug-related scene. I give this film one star out of four. There is an experience coming on the horizon. Can you feel it yet? Disney

is about to let go with the first wide release double feature in the history of both Pixar and their digital 3-D format. “Toy Story” and “Toy Story 2,” featuring some of the most cherished characters of all time, are set to premiere in a oneticket double feature for a limited twoweek engagement. I was thrilled to get a chance to revisit these charming stories, especially since it had been since 1999 t h a t I ’ d s e e n e i t h e r. T h e a d v e n t u re s o f S h e r i ff Wo o d y a n d B u z z L i g h t y e a r hold up well – particularly the first one – and the 3-D special effect is simply icing on an already delicious cake. It’s also the best way I can think of to excite audiences for a third installment, due to arrive in theatres next June. “The 3-D Toy Story/ Toy Story 2 Double F e a t u re ” h a s a c o m b i n e d r u n n i n g t i m e , including an intermission of 195 minutes and is rated G. I give this experience four stars out of four.

Fencing Academy opens for students in the St. Louis area By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge What kid hasn’t dreamed of having a sword fight with his or her greatest nemesis? Kids turn almost any inanimate object that resembles a sword into a swashbuckling weapon. They take their stance and have an imaginary battle where at times they revel in victory or they writhe on the ground for a 20 minute slow and torturous death. Now you have a place to give your child, or even an adult, the opportunity to make those dreams a reality by learning to fence. Olympia Fencing Academy is the St. Louis area’s first dedicated training facility. Not only do their members include nationally ranked fencers who regularly compete around the country, they also have dozens of recreational fencers of all ages and skill levels who simply enjoy the

October 8, 2009

s t r a t e g y, athleticism and camaraderie of the sport . Located in the central corridor of St. Louis county, at 8664 Olive Blvd., Olympia Fencing Academy’s main training facility features over 6,500 square feet of training space with state-of-theart equipment and a large viewing area for spectators. Olympia is owned by Paula Reed, who serves as the Vice Chair of the St. Louis Division of the United States Fencing Association. Paula also sits on the National USFA Board. Mary Bartling, who also sits on the St. Louis division board, is in charge of operations. R e b e c c a S c h n e i d e r, w h o i s dedicated to developing a strong youth program, heads the coaching staff. Before Schneider came to Olympia, she founded and was head coach of The Point Fencing Club in Champaign. For ten years prior to that, she ran the University of Illinois’ Fencing Club. Sean Horan is a highly trained epee and sabre coach, having trained under Master coaches at Golden Gate Fencing Club and First Place Fencing Club, both located in northern California. T h e s e coaches can take your fencing as far as you want it to go, whether that means participation i n a n enjoyable form of exercise or competing at the national level.

Olympia’s coaches have helped many fencers achieve nationally ranked status, as well as success at NCAA schools. Olympia’s vision goes beyond merely teaching people to fence. Everything Olympia does is approached in a holistic manner. According to Paula Reed, “The fencer can’t be isolated from the rest of the person. Regardless of whether that fencer is a child or an adult, the entire individual must be engaged.” That is why Olympia’s membership package includes access to a nutritionist, conditioning coach, physical therapist and nationally renowned sport psychologist. Olympia is even constructed and maintained as a green environment. “We don’t just teach fencing,” states Mary Bartling, “We train for life.” But, if you don’t want to become a member and prefer to just take classes for fun, Olympia can fulfill that option too. With Star Wars themed birthday parties and after school programs with names like ”Cap’n Jack Sparrow and the Pirate Anne Bonny,” it’s clear that fun is an important part of Olympia’s holistic approach. A complete list of classes is available on their Web site, www. olympiafencing.com. Enrollment for the upcoming fall session has begun with classes scheduled to begin Oct. 19 and running through Dec.11.

Family Focus Photo booths still churn out memories By RYAN KOST Associated Press PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — In a corner of the airy, wood-paneled lobby at the Ace Hotel stands a big black booth with a curtain for an entrance and a mirror with delicate script that reads: “You are beautiful.” Two young girls duck inside. Who are they to argue? They sit on a pedestal, pay $4 and wait. POP — a flash goes off. POP. POP. POP. A machine inside whirs and clicks, and clicks some more. They wait, like hundreds of other people every week, for it to spit out a slender strip of paper with four little pictures in black and white. Photo booths — the old-school, d u n k - a n d - d r y k i n d — a re a t the same time ubiquitous and endangered. The experience of waiting for that strip, small little moments in time, is nearly universal, yet the classic-style booths are hard to hunt down. The boxes, full of wires from disparate decades, aren’t in production any longer. A Web site devoted to the booths puts the number at about 200 in the United States and about 300 worldwide. No doubt there are more of them out there, gone unreported and possibly unused, but whatever the number is, it’s only going down. They’re being steadily replaced by digital booths. In the classics — both black and white and color — an image is projected onto a single strip of photo paper and then developed as you wait. The digital doesn’t get much fancier than a home set up. A camera takes your photo, a printer sends it on out. T h e d i ff e re n c e b e t w e e n t h e two is becoming less and less disc e r n i b l e , a t l e a s t a s f a r a s q u a l i t y a n d w a i t i n g t i m e a re concerned. But enthusiasts of the older booths, dependent on photo chemicals, will tell you something gets lost in the transition from grains to pixels. Their future relies largely on people like Will Simmonds. He owns Photobooth Services, which operates classic booths in Seattle, Portland and Hawaii. He bought the business, a fleet of 25 booths, about five years ago. Despite all the practical concerns about maintaining aging machines that are out of production, the booths keep finding patrons. Simmonds has about doubled the number he owns. He has increased his booths in Portland from one to 11. There are more than just those, of course, operated by different hands than his. It’s not an easy thing to keep them running — “You’re always scrounging for parts,” he says —

October 8, 2009

but in the right location, a booth can take hundreds of images a week and gross nearly a thousand bucks. “ Yo u c a n g o i n t o a r e a l l y happening bar where we have a classic photo booth, and there’s a line of people who are waiting to jump in with digital cameras in their hands and phone cameras,” Simmonds says. “That doesn’t make sense. It shouldn’t work.” But it does. Why? “You’re asking the guy behind the desk why people are using them,” he says, suggesting I ask the people who are using them instead. ••• The front door of the Ace Hotel opens. A mom, her 2-year-old daughter and a baby sitter walk in. The child and sitter step inside the photo booth, and the light flashes through the curtains. “I just like the old black-andwhite photo booths,” says Posy Quarterman as she watches her daughter, Frances Rudy, totter around the lobby. “It’s just classic. I know that’s cheesy.” She looks over the photos and smiles. “See, they’re awful and washed out,” she says. “And I love them.” ••• The very first photo booth appeared in 1925 on New York City’s Broadway, between 51st and 52nd streets. A Siberian immigrant, who struck up a childhood romance with photography and never left it behind, figured out how to rig a machine that would produce a series of photos on a small piece of paper, no negative needed. R e p o r t s f ro m t h e t i m e s a y thousands would show up each day. For 25 cents they’d get a

small piece of themselves back, a memory of a birthday, a first kiss, a graduation. The machines have changed. But maybe the motivations haven’t. “They’re spontaneous, there’s no preview, there’s no delete, you don’t have any idea how they’re going to come out,” says Brian Meacham, one of two men who run Photobooth.net, which keeps tabs on the machines. “It is fascinating that it does still have some kind of voice,” adds Tim Garrett, Meacham’s p a r t n e r. “ P e o p l e a r e m o r e uninhibited. There’s no photographer looking through the lens.” These two men — Meacham out of Los Angeles and Garrett out of St. Louis — are doing what they can to prop up the fading industry. Photobooth.net features artists and galleries that have somehow come to cross paths with photo booths, in addition to keeping up their catalog. They’ve also helped organize the annual photo booth convention. And Garrett runs PhotoboothStL, which rents the booths for weddings and other occasions. “The health of the photochemical photo booth industry, as it were, is declining, to put it nicely,” Meacham said. Garrett adds: “They’re a real pain when compared to digital photo booths. It just doesn’t make sense unless you really love them. It’s kind of an industry fueled by love.” Then he laughs. “That sounds pretty cheesy.” ••• On a recent Friday evening, the Ace Hotel photo booth produced a strip of photos for Bernadette

and Todd Donovan. It probably wouldn’t look like much to just anybody. The couple have fun in the photos, but they don’t do anything too spectacular. And yet, as they study the photo, their smiles broaden. “The first one, look at your face!” Bernadette says. “Aww, that’s cute. That one’s my favorite.” They were about to wrap up a cross-country road trip. It’s not so much about the pictures themselves, they said. That strip, it’s a memory. ••• Evelyn Weston pushes a key into a small hole just to the left of the photo booth camera. The case cracks open. The inside of a photo booth is a mess of gears and springs and wires and dust. The machines need constant loving. Chemicals age, water evaporates and the images grow murkier. “I’m gonna need to change these chemicals pretty soon,” Weston says. “It’s getting a little hairy in there.” She has worked for Photobooth Services for about three years. She maintains all the booths i n O re g o n . S h e k n o w s t h e s e machines better than anybody else.

Give her a strip and she’ll tell you, within a guess or two, which booth it’s from. Each time Weston adjusts a machine she has to take a set of test pictures, sometimes two. She has thousands of them at home. The best ones she puts in a box. There was the time she brought a plant in with her, the time she d re s s e d u p l i k e a n E g y p t i a n pharaoh, the time she brought in a pair of oversized scissors. After she has filled the chemicals and the door is shut, she takes her place before the camera. The box lights up. “Photos Delivered Here in 3 Minutes,” the sign over the photo drop reads. “I think it’s a little bit longer. It’s like 3 1/2 ,” Weston says. She pauses. “It’s less than five.” ••• Sara Kemple looks over her shoulder at the machine. “Is it there?” she asks. “No.” Kemple, 21, is waiting with her friend, Lauren Karcey, 19, for a set of photos they just took. The booths are fun, they say. Uninhibited. Random. Oldfashioned. “You have to wait for it, too,” Kemple says. “It’s not instant.” Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

After having joint replacement surgery, the bounce back team at Maryville Manor helped Evelyn feel like herself again.

A season of music SIUE lines up a showcase of sounds By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge The fall semester at SIUE has begun and the campus is buzzing with all the activities under way. The SIUE Music Department is also busy preparing for the upcoming scheduled productions where the music majors and faculty showcase their talents for the students, faculty and public. According to the Music Department outline, for nearly 50 years, SIUE has prepared students to become leaders in their community and professionals in their fields of study. The performances that are made available for the public and SIUE students and staff are just a taste of what these students are working so diligently toward. Just recently, SIUE welcomed Dr. Emily Truckenbrod to its faculty. She is the new Assistant Professor of Vocal Studies. Her bio on the SIUE Web site reads, “Soprano Emily Truckenbrod has a clear voice that makes “the angels sigh with envy. (The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus) Her most recent role with the WGO was Oscar in ‘Un Ballo di Maschera.’ Previous roles include Adele in ‘Die Fledermaus,’ The Queen of the Night and Papagena in ‘The Magic Flute,’ Marie in ‘La Fille du Regiment,’ and Yum Yum in ‘The Mikado.’ She maintains an active international recital schedule, including appearances at the Teatro Nacional “Manuel Bonilla” in Honduras, St. Mark’s Cathedral in Salzburg, Austria, and La Chapelle Notre-Dame de Compassion in Paris. She has also performed with

symphonies and opera companies throughout the Midwest.” Truckenbrod feels privileged to join the Music Department at SIUE. “I am excited to be here. Every area of this department is very proactive in getting students involved in the many facets of music.” Professor Audrey Tallent, Chair of the Department of Music, feels that not only will the music majors at SIUE, but the community as a whole, benefit from Dr. Truckenbrod’s talents and expertise that are being added to an already passionate faculty. “Every faculty member in this department has a passion for what they do and students aren’t the only ones who benefit, the entire community does. The department runs beautifully because we have a lot of support form the Arts and Sciences Dean’s office who strengthens the team mentality,” said Tallant. A number of wonderful performances are scheduled for the year.

The Arts Artistic adventures Touhill will host O Pioneers! O Pioneers! – an opera set in 1910 on the American frontier – will make its world premiere at the Touhill Performing Arts Center, October 9 & 10, for two performances.  Curtain time on Friday and Saturday is 8 p.m. in the Anheuser-Busch Performance Hall. O Pioneers! is based on Willa Cather ’s novel of the same name.  One of the leading figures of American literary Modernism, Cather’s work of fiction faithfully conveyed both the sharp physical realities and the mythic sweep of the transformation of the American frontier.  The opera’s composer Barbara Harbach has again teamed up with lyricist Jonathan Yordy to create the O Pioneers! original musical score.  Together, they have created 27 numbers for     O Pioneers!  They last collaborated on the musical Booth! which debuted at the Touhill in 2007 and ran in New York City this past June. H a r b a c h a n d Yo r d y h a v e assembled a nationally recognized group of opera professionals to stage O Pioneers!, complete with arias, dance and chorus.  Local arts groups including Dimensions Dance Center, the St. Louis Women’s Chorale and the University of MissouriSt. Louis’ College of Fine Arts and Communication contribute talent to round out the production.  The principal cast includes: Gina Galati in the lead role as Alexandra Bergstrom; Robert Boldin as Carl; Ann Hoyt as Marie; Thomas Wazelle as Emil; Ian Greenlaw as Frank; Philip Touchette as Oscar; David Dillard as Ivar; Joshua Stanton as Amedee; and Tom Sitzler as Lou. O Pioneers! is the story of a family of Swedish immigrants in the farm country near the fictional town of Hanover, Neb., at the turn of the 20th century.  The main character, Alexandra Bergson, inherits the family farmland when her father dies, and she devotes her life to making the farm a viable enterprise at a time when other immigrant families were giving up and leaving the prairie.  Triumph is inextricably enmeshed with tragedy in this story of people who do not claim a land so much as they submit to it, and, in the process, become greater than they were.     To further enhance the patron’s live experience at O Pioneers!, the Touhill is offering the E3! program, Explore – Experience – Engage, in association with the Saturday 8 p.m. performance.  E3! pre-show discussions, which begin 50 minutes prior to the performance, and postshow receptions are free to ticket holders. Tickets for O Pioneers! are $35.  They are available now at the Touhill Performing Arts Center Ticket Office; online at www.touhill.org; or

Thinking about paradise? Calabash Cove rolls out winter deals

By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge

Have you let your mind wander to what it would be like if you could just go away for the holidays and just lay on the beach and enjoy the tropic tranquility? Or are those thoughts interrupted with the “Christmas with the Kranks” theory, that no matter how hard you try to forget about the hectic holiday season and skip over Christmas to get away, your family would never forgive you. Even just for one year. Maybe you can make that wish a reality by celebrating the holidays at Calabash Cove Resort and Spa on the spectacular Caribbean island of St. Lucia. If family members won’t stop pressuring you, take them with you! The rates are at an all time low and maybe if they can’t beat you, they will join you. Calabash Cove, St. Lucia’s newest boutique hotel resort, is now

October 8, 2009

announcing holiday availability and rates beginning at just $225 per night per person, based on double occupancy, from Dec. 21 through Jan. 3, depending on accommodations and meal plan selected. Tucked away on a gently sloping, tropical beachfront on the northwest coast of the island, this gorgeous property features 26 suites, all with Jacuzzis and many with private pools, as well as a full-service spa and fitness center, infinity-edge swimming pool, restaurant, cocktail bar, library, and game room. Choose from the European Plan (EP), featuring a daily island breakfast buffet, or the Luxury Gourmet Plan (LGP), an all-inclusive option that includes all meals and beverages throughout your stay. All of the rooms feature unparalleled views of the sea, the capital Castries to the south, or nearby Martinique to the north from a private balcony.

To look and feel your holiday best, the resort’s Ti Spa overlooks the 30foot Sweetwater infinity pool poised at bay’s edge and the wide expanse of the beach. Revitalizing treatments combine European technique with St. Lucia’s rich tradition of plant – and fruit-based curatives. Each can be enjoyed in a private treatment room or in the privacy of your room. The spa’s Fitness Centre is outfitted with Cybex cardiovascular equipment, and a full beauty salon offers hair treatments and mani - pedi services. Calabash Cove’s own Windsong Restaurant offers an international menu with Asian inflections, specializing in seasonally inspired dishes made from the freshest local ingredients. Unobstructed views across the Caribbean Sea enhance the menu’s sensory delights, and the kitchen’s chef de cuisine aspires to make Windsong the first Michelin star restaurant on the island. Complementing Windsong’s elegant milieu is the convivial C-bar, which serves international cocktails and fine wines from the Calabash Cove Cellars amid festive island music. In addition to its natural beauty, St. Lucia’s increasing allure also comes from its broad array of activities and adventures to make it a holiday season never to forget. Whether its snorkeling, golf, soaking in the hot springs, enjoying world-class jazz, riding a cable through a rainforest canopy, shopping in a quaint fishing village, viewing exotic wildlife like giant turtles, rock climbing, searching for ancient petroglyphs, driving into a volcano or cooling off under a waterfall, St. Lucia has something to offer everyone. Calabash Cove will help to transform guests’ dreams into reality with full concierge service for those who wish to explore the island. For more information, or to book your summer/fall getaway with Calabash Cove’s special reduced seasonal rates, visit the resort’s Web site at www.calabashcove.com.

Travel Travel briefs Foliage from the water: Top viewing spots for boaters CHICAGO (AP) — If you enjoy fall foliage, consider doing some of your leaf-peeping from the water. The Chicago-based Discover Boating organization is recommending 10 places nationwide to see autumn colors by boat. And you don’t have to own a boat; some places offer cruises or rentals. Starting in the Northeast, Lake Champlain, which borders New York and Vermont, offers cruises with mountain backdrops. From Burlington, try a 90-minute scenic ride aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen III through Oct. 18, http://www. soea.com/. In New York, the Hudson River is prime fall color territory, September right through early November. New York Waterway’s “Shades of Autumn” cruise departs from Manhattan and New Jersey for a trip up the Hudson — http://www. nywaterway.com. For information on other cruises farther upstate, visit http://www.hudsonriver.com/ cruises.htm. In more southerly regions, milder temperatures result in foliage lasting later in the season. Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri and Arkansas offer fall colors mid-October to midNovember; http://www.funlake. com/. In the Tennessee River Gorge in the Cumberland Mountains, wildlife like eagles, ospreys and wild turkeys are part of the scenery; details at http://www.trgt.org/. Along the Shenandoah River in Virginia, colorful views of the Appalachian, Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountains also run mid-October to mid-November. The river is ideal for canoeing and kayaking, with Luray Caverns

and Shenandoah National Park among the nearby attractions. For information on visiting Virginia in the fall, go to http://www.virginia. org/fall/. In the Midwest, Door County, Wis., is located on a peninsula on Lake Michigan, perfect for boating and visiting small Midwestern towns

with a New England feel. Peak season is late September to late October; http://www.travelwisconsin.com/. Michigan’s southwest coast on Lake Michigan offers spectacular views of foliage, dunes, and sunsets throughout October, with Saugatuck as a prime jumping-off point for your travels; http://www.saugatuck.

Dining Delights Chefs elevating international street foods LOS ANGELES (AP) — Peruvian rice, steaming Greek falafels, satay dripping with peanut sauce, doughy Salvadoran pupusas, slippery Thai noodles. In much of the world, they are just on-the-go eats for the masses. But in the U.S., a growing cadre of chefs and foodies are savoring these so-called street foods, elevating them beyond their humble origins, and weaving the tastes and ingredients into their own menus and homes. "We've been reclaiming flavors," said Rick Bayless, winner of Bravo TV's "Top Chef Masters," fresh off the opening of his new Chicago restaurant XOCO, based on Mexican street staples such as churros, empanadas and tortas. "After we went through the '50s, in America, when food got so processed and bland, there's been a backlash over the past 10 to 15 years," Bayless said. "A lot of the 20to 35-year-olds are into this big, bold flavor. It's the antithesis of what you get in processed food, that balance of fat, sugar and salt. Street food has a tanginess to it. You get this thing that's so incredibly exciting to eat." Ubiquitous across Latin America, Southeast Asia and the Mediterranean, street food is becoming increasingly common in the U.S., thanks partly to chefs like Bayless and Zakary Pelaccio, whose Malaysian-inspired Fatty Crab in New York gives steamed pork and veggie buns serious treatment. Credit also is due to the growing army of food trucks and carts from coast to coast. As in Los Angeles, where the roving Kogi BBQ truck and its Korean-Mexican fusion has amassed thousands of fans through Twitter. The trend is being taken seriously. Street food is regular fodder for bloggers and glossy magazines alike. John Wi l l o u g h b y, e x e c u t i v e editor at Gourmet magazine, said he expects cross-fertilization between street food and restaurants to continue for years. He called a May 2005 issue on street food the magazine's favorite travel issue.

"Here, street food has traditionally meant hot dogs, except in L.A. and New York," said Willoughby. "People thought of it as unhealthy, and sort of lowbrow. It wasn't something you thought about and looked forward to. That's totally changed in the last five years. Street food has become a lot more interesting." According to Jackie Terrebonne, Gourmet's special projects editor, a wide variety of street food recipes have cropped up in new cookbooks by noted chefs, including John Besh's "My New Orleans: The Cookbook" and David Chang's "Momofuku," named after his New York restaurant chain featuring ramen and ssam, a type of Asian burrito. The Culinary Institute of America, one of the nation's premier cooking schools, is even hosting a conference — "Frontiers of Flavor: World Street Food, World Comfort Food" — in California in November. "If you told someone 15 years ago the Culinary Institute would organize a national conference on street food, you would have been laughed out of the room. The concept of food is changing," said Greg Drescher, the conference's organizer. American food up until the mid '90s revolved around dishes from Europe, Drescher said, with notions of culinary excellence tied to schooling in France, then Italy. Foods considered "ethnic" were on the periphery. Then chefs and food writers and enthusiasts started traveling beyond those European borders. "A lot of people went to South Asia and discovered this incredible world of outdoor street food. Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, India. It's as though you've been watching color television for the first time," Drescher said. "A street food vendor has one shot at impressing the customer. It's often quite creative and complex. Those people are doing one or two dishes for 20 to 30 years. They've gotten really good at what they're doing." The nation's immigrant communities also have helped make

street food more commonplace. In Los Angeles County alone, several thousand food trucks and carts — many run by immigrants — operate around the city. In New York, Middle Eastern food stands are staples, as are carts selling arepas, South American corn meal patties. In Chicago, said Bayless, the spicier the street food the better, from regional Mexican fare to Puerto Rican. Guatemala native Irma Alvarado, 51, moved to Los Angeles in 1986 and started selling her pupusas at farmer's markets two years ago. She learned to cook the thick meat, cheese and vegetable-filled breads while helping to care for her 11 brothers, and began working as a food vendor at age 15. Sales at her roving L.A. stand have increased four to five times since last year. "People go to a restaurant, and they have to sit down, wait. Here, you can see your food made, and it's faster and cheaper, fresh," Alvarado said. For Susan Feniger, a trip to India 30 years ago jump-started her shift away from French-style cooking. At her new Hollywoodcasual restaurant STREET squares of toasted bread with sweet coconut jam, a Singapore treat called kaya toast, come with soft-fried egg drizzled with soy sauce. Small collard leaves serve as taco shells for Thai bites, a dish seasoned with toasted coconut, crushed peanuts, dried shrimp, ginger, chilies and chopped lime. "I love street food," said Feniger. "Many chefs do. I'm drawn to it

because culturally I don't like going to fancy restaurants." ••• I n I n d i a , s a m o s a s a re t h e quintessential street food. They typically are filled with meat or vegetables or both. A sweet and spicy dipping sauce is the perfect complement to this deep-fried food. To speed up this recipe, skip the dough and substitute purchased wonton wrappers (available in the produce section at most grocers). Use a large round cookie cutter to trim the wrappers into circles. POTATO AND PEA SAMOSAS Start to finish: 1 hour 15 minutes (45 minutes active) Servings: 4 For the dough: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 5 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter), room temperature 1/2 to 1 cup ice water For the sauce: 3 tablespoons garlic jelly 2 tablespoons lime juice 2 tablespoons water 1/2 tablespoon hot sauce For the filling: 1 tablespoon black mustard seeds 1 tablespoon yellow mustard seeds 1 tablespoon ghee 1 teaspoon turmeric 1 teaspoon garam masala 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/4-inch piece fresh ginger, grated 6 medium potatoes, boiled, peeled and cut into 1/3-inch cubes 1 cup peas, steamed Salt, to taste Vegetable oil, for frying

To make the dough, in a food processor combine the flour and salt. Pulse several times. Add the ghee and pulse until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. With the processor running, drizzle in enough water to form a dough that is soft and elastic. Transfer the dough to a bowl, cover and let rest for 1 hour. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, whisk together the jelly, lime juice, water and hot sauce. Set aside. If desired, the sauce can be heated briefly just before serving. To make the filling, in a large saute pan over low, toast both mustard seeds. Once the seeds begin to pop in the pan, add the ghee, turmeric, garam masala, pepper and ginger. Saute for 2 minutes, then add the potatoes. Remove the pan from heat, then stir in the peas and season with salt. Set aside. When the dough is ready, shape it into a log and cut it into 16 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece into a 5-inch circle. Use a finger dipped in water to moisten the edges. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of the potato mixture in the center of each circle, then fold the edges together to form a half-circle. Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges. In a large, heavy saucepan over medium-high, heat 2 inches of oil to 300 F. Working in batches, add the samosas and fry until golden, about 3 to 4 minutes, using a spoon to turn them as needed in the oil. Transfer the samosas to paper towels to drain. Serve with the dipping sauce.

Garden work doesn't end with summer

By CAROLE FELDMAN Associated Press

Jeana Myers is thinking about getting her garden in Raleigh, N.C., ready for the first frost, even though it’s still likely weeks away. Work in the garden doesn’t end just because those long days of summer are over. Myers’ peach, plum and other fruit trees have stopped bearing fruit, and the tomatoes are ripening more slowly as the days get shorter and the temperatures cooler. By mid-October, she’ll begin to pull the green tomatoes off the vines, to eat or to let ripen. “If a freeze hits them, they’re done,” said Myers, a soil scientist for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture. As the season ends for tomatoes, squash and other summer vegetables, it’s prime time for leafy green vegetables like spinach and arugula. “We can really grow vegetables year-round,” Myers said. “Our challenge is that it’s going to get really hot again.” The green leafy vegetables don’t like those warmer temperatures. Historically, the first frost arrives in her area around Oct. 15. Some northern parts of the country already have been hit with frost advisories. Most places still have a month or so of growing season left, said Charlie Nardozzi, senior horticulturist for the National Gardening Association. Many gardeners will cover their plants to try to protect them from the cold and extend the growing season. Floating row covers, made of a cheesecloth-type material, let in light, air and water. “They protect the plant like a blanket,” Nardozzi said. Some people lay the row cover directly over the plants. Others build a frame. You also can use metal hoops and create a tunnel for the plants, Nardozzi said. The covers provide a few extra degrees of protection when the temperature drops below freezing. Myers puts bales of hay around special plants. “They have a lot of insulating value,” she said. She’ll also use a kelp spray, which she said improves the plant’s resistance to cell damage under cold conditions. Some plants do better than others as the weather turns cold. “All the rooting vegetables like turnips and beets, they’ll be fine,” said Christopher Gunter, a vegetable production specialist and assistant professor at North Carolina State University. He said the soil has a “buffering heat” that will keep these vegetables warm even during a mild frost.

Volunteer Sathya Yalvigi, right, of Avondale, Pa. helps to winterize the University of Delaware’s Garden for the Community in Newark, Del. Besides trying to coax a few more ripe tomatoes out of your plants, fall is also a good time for garden cleanup. “A lot of people are sort of tired of their garden,” said Susan Barton, an extension specialist at the University

Annual plants should be pulled and composted — provided they are disease free. Once the plants are out, compost or manure can be spread on the beds and worked into the soil. Any kind of organic matter will do, Nardozzi said. “Use your leaves wisely,” Barton said. “Leaves are a wonderful compost.” Preparing garden beds now gives the organic material time until spring to decompose and fertilize the soil. But do it before it gets too cold, Gunter said, to give the micro-organisms a chance to start breaking down the material. To prevent erosion during the winter, Nardozzi recommends planting winter rye or winter wheat seed. A t t h e c o m m u n i t y g a rd e n s in Portland, Ore., growers are encouraged to clean up their plots and then plant a cover crop like alfalfa or legumes, said botanical specialist Dan Franek. “It shows us their plot is still active.”

Legumes also are an excellent source of nitrogen for the soil. Fall also is a good time to aerate and fertilize the lawn. New trees and shrubs can be planted — there’s still time for the roots to get established before the soil gets too cold. Nardozzi recommends putting a tree wrap or guard around young trees so mice or voles don’t do damage during the winter. And tropical plants can be dug up and brought inside. First, though, prune them back, pull off any dead leaves and check for insects, Barton said. “Sometimes it’s a matter of washing off the p l a n t w i t h a h a rd s t re a m o f water.” But what about those unripe vegetables and herbs? Some herbs, like rosemary, are perennials and come back in the spring. Annuals, like basil, won’t survive the first frost. Basil leaves can be pulled and dried. Or, you can make pesto and freeze it to last through the winter.

o f D e l a w a re . “ O n c e i t s t o p s producing they just want to forget about it. While you can do that, you allow all of those fungal spores to overwinter, and insects, too.” That can mean trouble for your garden come spring.
