Route 66 keeps on kicking New owners put life in Weezy’s restaurant/bar By JULIA BIGGS Of The Edge Nothing quite represents Route 66 better than the small mom and pop restaurants, bars and hotels that dot the route on its way from Chicago to Los Angeles.  And the area has a little Route 66 gem of a small bricked restaurant/bar that sits on the corner of 157 and 140 in Hamel. If driving along Route 66, it could be easy to miss this small establishment, but it would be a shame if you didn’t stop in, have a bite to eat, spend a few hours hanging out with the wonderful people of Hamel and meet the new owners Karen Wiesemeyer and Coleman Weissman. The couple has been working tirelessly since July when they took over ownership to bring great food, a family atmosphere, excellent customer service and weekend entertainment to Weezy’s Bar and Grill in Hamel.  Weezy’s has tremendous Route 66 historical importance.  Albert Cassens built and opened the original roadhouse with six upstairs sleeping rooms in 1937 and named it “Tourist Haven Restaurant and Hotel.”   Although the establishment has changed ownership over the years and the name has changed from Village Inn, Earnie’s, Scotty’s and now Weezy’s, one thing hasn’t changed – the place provides visitors and the Hamel community with a home away from home.  “We’ve been told that the railroad guys would stop, have dinner and then go upstairs and sleep and then check back out,” Wiesemeyer said about the early days. Over the years the upstairs area was used as a boarding house that provided necessary housing for many in the community.  “What I’ve learned in the last few months is that through the years, many of the old timers who are still living, lived up there,” Wiesemeyer said. “They rented a room.  It was a boarding house.  There’s so much history and people come in and say, “Oh, my husband and I stayed here when we got married and we rented it for three or four months.” Locals aren’t the only ones who have found Weezy’s to be a place of camaraderie, entertainment and great food.  A world map on the wall filled with pushpins marks the homes of all of Weezy’s visitors.  What’s surprising is to find the European countries on the map littered with push pins.  A guest book is filled with European names.  Wiesemeyer said that Europeans are quite interested in Route 66.  “They usually fly into Chicago, rent Harleys or vans and drive the route all the way to L.A.,” she said.  In less than three months the book has been filled with page after page of signatures that crisscross Europe – “Holland, Italy - many, many Europeans,” Wiesemeyer said. Because of the tremendous amount of Route 66 traffic that Weezy’s experiences, the couple hopes to one day turn the upstairs area into a bed and breakfast for travelers. But in the meantime they are focusing on what Wiesemeyer has spent her life doing – cooking and serving customers. Wiesemeyer grew up on a farm in Alhambra and began working at Diamond Mineral

Coleman Weissman and Karen Wiesemeyer, co-owners of Weezy’s located on historic Route 66 in Hamel. Springs Restaurant when she was 12 years old.  She worked for 20 years at Randy’s Restaurant in Troy, worked for Sodexho Marriott of Highland and oversaw the restaurant and catering at Stonebridge Golf Course in Maryville for 11 years.  Food and food service have defined her life.  It was a day in January when a friend who worked at the bank told Wiesemeyer that Scotty’s, the former name of the establishment, was for sale.  He told her that he thought she would be a great owner and encouraged her to look into it.  In April the couple looked at Scotty’s and by July 24 they were opening the doors to the new Weezy’s. At first, some people in the community were a little skeptical of the woman from the country club.  “The people thought we were going to come in and make it fine dining, but I come from the country,” Wiesemeyer said.  “I’m not educated.  I’m not a chef.” It didn’t take long for the community to completely embrace the new owners.  “We were outsiders in a small town,” Wiesemeyer said. “In the beginning people weren’t sure who we really were but now that they know I’m really from this area. And the nice part for Coleman is that he went to school with Hamel people.” Wiesemeyer expressed her gratitude for how supportive the Hamel community had been.  “They are the greatest customers in the world,” she said.   “The regulars, the repeat business, day in and day out - some of our customers are here four times a day.  They sit right there at quarter to six in the morning, we get started serving breakfast, and then they are back about 8:30 a.m. for coffee.  Then

they are here at lunch.  Then a lot of them that aren’t widowed are here at dinner with their spouses.  I can’t believe how they have sevenfolded us.” “They are the greatest,” she said as tears welled up in her eyes.  “We’re just appreciative of it.” Although Weezy’s closing time can vary slightly, it is open from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Friday; 6 a.m. to 2 a.m. on Saturday and 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday. The kitchen is open weekdays until 9 p.m. and through 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.  A limited but much diversified menu is available after the kitchen closes. During regular hours a very extensive menu is available.  “I told her she was crazy when she was putting it together,” Weissman joked about the variety on the menu.  “I said how are you going to be able to cook all that different stuff and stock it all, but she does.” The main menu features numerous appetizers and sides such as beer battered onion rings, fried cauliflower with cheese, hand breaded buffalo chicken tenders with ranch and jumbo crab cakes.  Two Weezy’s appetizer top sellers are the fried pickle spears with ranch and the sweet potato fries. Several sandwiches are on the menu including six burger options as well as a variety of wraps and other sandwiches.  Both Weissman and Wiesemeyer said the Reuben, the ponyshoe, and burgers are big hits and Wiesemeyer makes homemade soups, salads and pies daily. Weissman said his personal favorite was the rib eye sandwich and the “her taco salad was really good too.” There’s also a full dinner platter menu

featuring Karen’s fried chicken, pastas, seafood and steaks.  In addition there’s a complete breakfast menu, kid’s meals and daily lunch specials every day and dinner specials every night.  Lunch specials are $5.95.  “The menu is so wide.  It just satisfies everybody because there’s anything and everything on the menu,” Wiesemeyer said. While Weissman, a carpenter by trade, is obviously the quieter half of Weezy’s, his contributions are noticeable throughout the establishment.  Weissman was a critical piece in renovating the interior once the couple bought Scotty’s in July.  Although Wiesemeyer credited Weissman with all of the maintenance, renovations and being “so supportive of me,” Weissman pointed out that it was Wiesemeyer who “runs the place.” They both obviously are the perfect mix because Weezy’s seems to be off to a great beginning. “It’s not because I’m here or Coleman, it’s the history that’s behind this community right here. It’s great.” Wiesemeyer said. “We are blessed that the community is giving us such a great amount of business.” Wiesemeyer was also thankful for her friends she had met throughout her years in the food business in Troy and friends she acquired while living there who now venture up to Hamel to support their new business. “It’s building a better business every day,” she said. “Never in my life would I have dreamt that there could be this kind of business. It may just be a cup of coffee, but they are here every day drinking that cup of coffee. I go to bed at night and I just thank God for another day.”

People People planner Magic House hosts Curious George exhibit If you’re curious about the newest traveling exhibit in town, grab your little monkeys and swing on over to The Magic House September 26 - January 24 for a little monkey business. Get ready for a swinging good time at Curious George: Let’s Get Curious, an exhibit based on the popular children’s books and PBS Kids television series. Step into the pages of Curious George and experience the books firsthand at this very curious exhibit. At Curious George: Let’s Get Curious, kids can satisfy their curiosity in science, math and engineering through experience and problem solving just like George. Kids have the opportunity to hang out in George’s neighborhood and tagalong on his many adventures with the Man with the Yellow Hat as they operate wheels to help George clean the windows of an apartment building, climb a fire escape, sort and weigh fruits and vegetables at a produce stand, use science skills to putt a hole in mini golf, climb the rocket from George’s space adventure, build a whirligig at the farm, use conveyers and levers at a construction site and visit the Museum within the Museum. This exhibit is sure to produce lots of ooh, ooh, oohs and ahs! There is a lot to monkey see and monkey do, so stop by The Magic House and get curious!

Dinosaurs to invade Botanical Garden The Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis is marking the golden anniversary of one of its most popular attractions, the Climatron®, by transporting visitors back in time to the golden age of dinosaurs. Feel the thrill of encountering a hulking Placerias, bird-like Bambiraptor or soaring Sordes in an unparalleled

December 3, 2009

environment: hidden in the heart of a thriving tropical rain forest. Witness dozens of these realistic, pre-historic creatures when “DinoQuest: A Tropical Trek Through Time” debuts at the Missouri Botanical Garden in 2010. Since 1960, the Climatron has easily been one of the most recognizable features at the Garden, noted as the first geodesic dome to be used as a plant conservatory. Inside, lush green foliage, cascading waterfalls and a warm, humid climate simulate an authentic jungle atmosphere.  “This exhibition provides a perfect introduction to the history of life on earth, extinction, and survival. How we manage our resources will have a major effect on the future of life, and there are many lessons to be learned from the past,” said Dr. Peter Raven, president of the Missouri Botanical Garden. “In addition to the educational value, there is also a real sense of excitement in experiencing these lifelike creatures in such an awe-inspiring setting. We hope it will evoke wonder, imagination and intrigue in visitors of all ages.” On the “trek through time,” visitors of all ages will experience life in a tropical forest long ago, today and tomorrow. A smooth pathway winds through the 24,000-squarefoot Climatron conservatory, where more than a dozen installations depict dinosaurs and reptiles from the Cretaceous, Jurassic, Triassic and Permian periods “frozen in time” amid the living flora. Encounter hungry herbivores, including a pair of toothy Heterodontosaurus and

an eight-foot-long,bulky-bodied Placerias. Spot a flock of bird-like Bambiraptors hovering beneath green cycads, keeping watch over nests brimming with eggs. Identify a large Dimetrodon by the finned “sail” along its spine, or the threefoot-long Rhamphorynchus by its fur-covered wings. Postosuchus, a pre-dinosaur age predator of Placerias, hides atop a cliff near a bamboo grove, while a hungry Syntarsus lurks beneath a large tree. See the Compsognathus tend to their nests near the basin of a waterfall as a trio of vigilant Oviraptors keep watch over their nests of offspring near a shallow pool. Look up to find three hairy Sordes, ready to take flight from their perches in the trees. Two Quetzalcoatlus babies, also flying reptiles, huddle in their nest above a tank of fish, while their 30-footlong parent flies high inside the neighboring Shoenberg Temperate House, a conservatory adjacent to the Climatron. Outside on Garden grounds, a 30-foot-long, duck-billed Parasaurolophus nurtures its three young. A 32-foot-tall Tyrannosaurus rex can scarcely go unnoticed as it towers above the surrounding flora. On public display for the first time, a 30-foot-long pregnant Hypsibema, the Missouri state dinosaur, watches over its nest and greets visitors near the entrance to the Doris I. Schnuck Children’s Garden. The realistic DinoQuest dinosaurs and reptiles are a labor of love for creator Guy Darrough of Lost World

Studios in Arnold, Mo. Darrough has been devoted to building life-sized models of these extinct creatures for nearly 15 years. “My ultimate goal is to create an experience that is realistic enough to draw visitors into the arena of science and learning,” said Darrough. “The aesthetic appeal of these dinosaurs coupled with the surrounding vegetation is just incredible.” The dinosaur discovery continues as visitors exit the Climatron into the Brookings Interpretive Center. There, visitors will be amazed to view a one-and-one-half-ton slab of sandstone containing over 200 bones from dinosaurs, turtles, fish and birds. Darrough obtained the slab from an excavation in Lance Creek, Wyo. and estimates the sandstone piece is over 65 million years old. Children can hone their own paleontology skills by unearthing faux bones at a mini-dino dig site, climb and play in a dinosaur nest, envision themselves in the days of dinosaurs through green screen technology, and get an up-close look at the Dino Egg Incubator, an original prop from the set of the movie “Jurassic Park III.” Families

The Blind Boys of Alabama Christmas concert scheduled at The Sheldon By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge If you are looking for a unique presentation of some holiday spirit, The Blind Boys of Alabama have just the show for you. P re s e n t e d a t t h e b e a u t i f u l S h e l d o n w i t h i t s perfect acoustics, “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” The Blind Boys of Alabama Christmas Show, will be performed on Saturday, Dec. 12, at 8 p.m. One of today’s most celebrated Grammy-award winning gospel groups, The Blind Boys of Alabama have spread the spirit and energy of pure soul gospel music for more than 60 years, ever since the original group formed at the Alabama Institute for the Negro Blind in 1939. In recent years, the Blind Boys have proven themselves masters of bringing out the most spiritual aspects of mainstream music, while at the same time bringing the music of the church straight to the roadhouse. In the past five years, they’ve recorded moving renditions of songs by everyone from Tom Waits to Prince, side by side with their traditional material. They have appeared as guests on record and on stage with an equally diverse array of a r t i s t s , f r o m P e t e r G a b r i e l t o B e n H a r p e r. During this amazing run, the cover tunes and collaborations have been consistently acclaimed and possess a time-tested understanding of the sounds that move the soul. Accompanied by some of the Crescent City’s

We’ve had it in our minds to work there for awhile, and we decided to do it now to support New Orleans while they rebuild after the hurricane.” This year ’s tour is the Blind Boys sixth Christmas tour, which coincides with their newest album, “Duets,” released Oct. 27 featuring collaborations with Bonnie Raitt, Lou Reed, Ben Harper, Randy Travis, John Hammond, Solomon Burke and more. Duets features three previously unreleased tracks – with Lou Reed, John Hammond and Toots Hibbert – as well as a new song with Timothy B. Schmit of the Eagles that was simultaneously released on his forthcoming CD. Don’t miss “Go Tell It On The Mountain,” The Blind Boys of Alabama Christmas Show, Saturday, Dec.12, at 8 p.m. at the Sheldon Concert Hall. Tickets are $47 orchestra and $42 balcony, and are available through MetroTix at 314-534-1111 or at www.TheSheldon.org.

Music Tuning in SIUE’s Theatre and Dance Department set for production

St. Louis Chamber Chorus to celebrate the holidays

If you’ve read a self-help book or attended a self-help seminar, then you might want to help yourself to the next production by SIUE’s Department of Theater and Dance. The first two weekends in December will showcase “Whammy!! The Seven Secrets to a Sane Self,” which has been conceived and directed by Chuck Harper. According to information from the Department of Theater and Dance, the play is a montagebased original performance that combines video, movement, found text, original text, real-time audience “happiness” quizzes and Stanley Kramer ’s 1963 comedy, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” The various forms of media come together in order to explore our nation’s obsession with, and addiction to, self-help and selfactualization. Performances are scheduled Dec. 2 to Dec. 5 and Dec. 11 at 12 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 6 and Dec. 13 at 2 p.m. in the Dunham Hall Theater on the SIUE Campus. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for seniors, non-SIUE students, SIUE alumni, retirees, faculty and staff. SIUE students are admitted free with a valid ID. Free parking is available behind the theater in Lot E. For more information, contact the box office at 650-2774. The SIUE Department of Theater and Dance has two more performances scheduled for this season. “Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” will be presented Feb. 24 to 28 and “Intimate Apparel” will take the stage April 21 to 25.

The Saint Louis Chamber Chorus closes 2009 with “A New World Christmas,” intended to complement last year’s Christmas performance of music by European composers. The program includes many of the same texts as last year but set to music by composers from the New World working primarily in the past 150 years.    While the audience will recognize popular carols such as “O Little Town of Bethlehem” and “It Came Upon The Midnight Clear,” many might not be familiar with “Scenes from the Holy Infancy,” a chamber cantata by Missouri’s own Virgil Thomson.  Morten Lauridsen’s “O Magnum Mysterium” and “If Ye Would Hear Angels Sing” by the Chamber Chorus’s own Martha Shaffer show that contemporary Christmas music is alive and well.  The concert will also feature a world premiere by Sasha Johnson Manning and commissioned by the Chamber Chorus.  “The Tree of Life” stands as a companion to Manning’s 2008 piece, “Christbaum.”    No Chamber Chorus program can be without its share of surprises.  This concert’s offerings include “Magnificat” set to music by the 17th century Columbian composer Gutiérrez Fernández Hidalgo.  Far from the only South American composer represented the concert will also include music of Brazilian Heitor Villa-Lobos and a Christmas song by Carlos Guastavino of Argentina.  As another surprise treat the concert will open with “Hanacpachap Cussicuinin,” the earliest example of polyphony from Peru, sung in the native language of Nahuatl.      Join the Saint Louis Chamber Chorus for its celebration of “A New World Christmas,” at 3 p.m. Sunday, December 20 at the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica.  Parking is free.  For more information about the concert, and tickets, call 636-4584343.

Good 4 The Soul to appear This explosive, four-piece ensemble Good 4 The Soul blends jazz, funk, fusion, gospel and R&B into a one-of-a-kind sound that excites and thrills audiences. When this band hits the stage, there are no boundaries. The group will appear at Jazz at the Bistro in St. Louis on Dec. 11 and Dec. 12 performing at 8:30 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. each night.

Spyro Gyra to put spin on Christmas Spyro Gyra will tie traditional Christmas music and jazz together in a festive package this holiday season when performing A Night Before Christmas at the Touhill Performing Arts Center on Saturday, December 5.   Special guest for the 8 p.m. concert in the Anheuser-Busch Performance Hall is Jane Monheit.  Spyro Gyra’s concert A Night Before Christmas features music from the band’s 2008 album – a collection of 11 tracks that capture the yuletide spirit with a decidedly traditional jazz vibe.  It includes such favorites as “Winter Wonderland,” “Christmas Time is Here,” “Baby it’s Cold Outside” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”  This album shows that even the most forward-thinking and cuttingedge artists take a nostalgic moment to count their blessings. Spyro Gyra has spent more than three decades pushing the boundaries and definitions of modern jazz.  In so doing, the group continues to forge an edgy, enduring sound that incorporates some of the best elements of jazz and merges them with R&B, pop, Latin and various other styles. But it isn’t always about breaking new ground. All five talented innovators – saxophonist Jay Beckenstein, pianist Tom Schuman,

guitarist Julio Fernandez, bassist Scott Ambush and drummer Bonny B – agree there’s a time and a place for reconnecting with tradition and celebrating the fundamental values at the core of their music and their lives. “We’ve always had a yearning to do a record that was kind of a straight-ahead record – or at least something closer to a straight-ahead record than what we normally do,” said Beckenstein. “But it’s always been very difficult to make that work in the context of what we do on most of our records. But a Christmas record was sort of an opportunity to really go someplace a little more subtle, a little more acoustic and more traditional.” Joining Spyro Gyra in A Night Before Christmas is Jane Monheit.  She is widely considered to be one of the great, young voices of jazz and traditional pop. Her professional career began at age 20 after winning the first runner-up prize at the 1998 Thelonious Monk Institute vocal competition. Since then, two of her recordings have received Grammy Award nominations.  Her first holiday-themed collection is the 2005 album The Season.   Tickets for Spyro Gyra’s A Night Before Christmas are $45 and $30.  They are available now at the Touhill Performing Arts Center Ticket Office; online at www.touhill. org; or by phone at 314.516.4949. The Touhill’s Ticket Office is located at One University Blvd., St. Louis, Mo. 63121. All St. Louis area students receive a 10% discount on two tickets with their I.D. Group and senior discounts are also available.    The Touhill Performing Arts Center is located on the north campus of the University of Missouri-St. Louis, just 10 minutes from Clayton. (Exit #240 from I-70). There is ample free parking, and the UMSL North Campus MetroLink Station is just steps from the

Touhill’s main entrance.

“A Christmas Carol”

“The Blind Side”

The time, not just the season, is ripe for a new version of “A Christmas Carol.” When Charles Dickens wrote his classic story, it was a cautionary tale to greedy capitalists of the 19th century (Scrooge recalls his deceased partner, Jacob Marley, as “a good man of business.”). Dickens’ story is about as sturdy a one as we’ve got — it would be nearly impossible to mar what might be the finest ghost story this side of “Hamlet.” Unfortunately, our 2009 version is defined only by its technology. Animated in 3-D, Disney’s “A Christmas Carol,” directed by Robert Zemeckis, suffocates from its design. Despite (or because of) Zemeckis’ approach to using performance-capture animation, the film comes off oddly inanimate. Jim Carrey, playing not just Scrooge but the three ghosts who visit him, clearly has the zest and range for the parts. But he — like the rest of the cast, including Gary Oldman, Colin Firth and Cary Elwes — struggles to break through the film’s excessive wizardry. RATED: PG for scary sequences and images. RUNNING TIME: 95 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two stars out of four. four.

T h i s re d e m p t i o n - m i n d e d s p o r t s f l i c k s e r v e s i t s inspiration straight-up with no twist. Writer-director John Lee Hancock wisely lets the true story of Michael Oher — the African-American teen who found a home and, eventually, football stardom, after being adopted by a wealthy Memphis family — speak for itself. That direct focus delivers a feel-good crowd-pleaser, but it also drains the film of the kind of subtle nuances that might have separated it from other Hollywood Hallmark-like efforts, including Hancock’s own “The Rookie.” The movie dutifully chronicles the transformation of Oher (newcomer Quinton Aaron) from blank slate to a fully formed young man, emphasizing the involvement of Leigh Ann Tuohy (Sandra Bullock). Bullock brings her trademark spunkiness to the mother hen role, delivering an iron-willed woman who looks past appearances to do the right thing. RATING: PG-13 for one scene involving brief violence, drug and sexual references. RUNNING TIME: 128 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

The end is not near enough for this latest nihilistic disaster flick, directed by end-of-the-world specialist Roland Emmerich (“The Day After Tomorrow,” ‘’Independence Day”). The 2 1/2-hour film hews close to genre standards: the redeemed deadbeat dad (John Cusack), the coming together of different peoples, the toppling of monuments. The cause of destruction this time is neutrinos from the sun that have heated the earth’s core and destabilized the planet’s crust. Cusack and others skip narrowly ahead of the shifting tectonics; California falls into the ocean and much of the world follows suit. The most grounded thing here is the acting. Cusack, Chiwetel Ejiofor (as a government scientist), Oliver Platt (as the president’s chief-of-staff) and Woody Harrelson (perfectly cast as a conspiracy theoryaddled nut) almost convince you that something decent is at work in “2012.” But it’s just another doomsday film, with new digital effects and stock scenes patched together from “Jaws,” ‘’The Poseidon Adventure” and “Armageddon.” RATEE: PG-13 for intense disaster sequences and some language. RUNNING TIME: 158 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.

This sci-fi family tale offers passable computer imagery but is an aborted liftoff when it comes to the lame story of a human astronaut among little green aliens who, for some uninspired reason, are living the serene “Ozzie and Harriet” life of 1950s America. Video-game veteran Jorge Blanco shifts to the big screen with an adventure as bland as the sitcommy decade that fostered it. Likewise, voice stars Dwayne Johnson, Jessica Biel and Justin Long seem to take their cue from the Ward Cleaver school of parental droning. Even vocal gymnast John Cleese sounds neutered as a partly mad alien scientist, while only Gary Oldman adds some bark as an alien general. Johnson provides vocals for the astronaut hero, who is befriended by a few young aliens while the rest of their planet wants to hunt him down as a monster. Though set on another world, the jokes are as derivative as they come, the filmmakers endlessly mining human pop culture in a vain search for laughs. RATED: PG for mild sci-fi action and some suggestive humor. RUNNING TIME: 91 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.

“2012”

December 3, 2009

“Planet 51”

“Red Cliff”

John Woo’s Hollywood movies never quite captured the grace and gutsiness of his Hong Kong action films. Woo has brought a good dose of Hollywood scale and style to his first film shot in mainland China, though. The U.S. release of “Red Cliff” suffers from the inevitable emasculation of a historical pageant chopped in half — it was cut down from a two-part, five-hour version for Asian audiences. Yet what remains on screen is impressive — grand battles, dazzling action, sumptuous sets, magnificent panoramas. What’s lost in the abbreviation is the emotional element as Woo chronicles an epic clash of warriors in the 3rd century. Fine moments of humanity and heroism do remain, particularly in the friendship forged between a warrior (Tony Leung, star of some of Woo’s Hong Kong films) and a sage (Takeshi Kaneshiro) as their outnumbered forces square off against a power-mad general (Zhang Fengyi). RATED: R for sequences of epic warfare. RUNNING TIME: 148 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: Two and a half stars out of four.

“The Twilight Saga: New Moon”

As every Stephenie Meyer fan knows, this is the one where studly vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) dumps human girlfriend Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) for her own safety, and she turns to old chum Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) for solace, unaware that he’s a werewolf, and therefore Edward’s sworn enemy. Fans will turn out in blockbuster legions, but here are a few of the many things wrong with director Chris Weitz’s adaptation: It’s really two half moons, or two halves of a movie that don’t quite fit. Mopey teenager Bella has all the luster of, well, a mopey teenager. The real rivalry is whether werewolves or vampires can behave with greater preposterousness and pretension. Finally, “New Moon” is boring, eternally so. The soap-opera melodrama of Stewart, Pattinson and Lautner’s performances provides some unintentional laughs. Yet Stewart is on screen almost all the time, and her Bella is just a drag to be around. With her flat speech and listless presence, it’s unfathomable how two different sets of monsters could fixate so completely on her. RATED: PG-13 for some violence and action. RUNNING TIME: 130 minutes. ASSOCIATED PRESS RANKING: One and a half stars out of four.

“The Road” big on ash By JAKE COYLE Associated Press In Cormac McCarthy’s postapocalyptic novel “The Road,” no word is repeated so often and with such steady emphasis as “ash.” The stuff is everywhere. It clogs the air, blocking the sun. It blankets the ground. It infiltrates the lungs of the protagonist we know only as The Man, who is shepherding his young son (The Boy) across a doomed landscape where most of the earth’s few survivors are marauding cannibals. But in director John Hillcoat’s adaptation of McCarthy’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, there’s not even a cigarette’s worth. Sootdeficiency is a forgivable offense, but Hillcoat’s “The Road” is missing other things, too. Though the film mostly strives to stay close to the book, it fails to translate its essence and somehow feels more dreary than it should — which is saying something for a story about the apocalypse. Despite its end-of-the-world setting, McCarthy’s book is, at heart, a father-son parable. The cause of the world’s destruction is intentionally vague — we are told that it comes with “a shear of light and a series of low concussions.” The i r s u r v i v a l , m o v i n g w i t h obsessive carefulness southward on a road, is a journey with Biblical undertones. The Man (Viggo Mortensen) is best viewed as a weary but strong Hemingway-esque hero. His wife (Charlize Theron) turned to suicide — “We’re the walking dead in a horror films,” she says in the book — a backstory we get in flashbacks. While the man, too, has a tenuous grasp of hope, he’s resolute in clawing for survival. But in the film, our dominant impression is of his morbidity. In

Associated Press

In this film publicity image released by The Weinstein Company, Viggo Mortensen, right, and Kodi Smit-McPhee are shown in a scene from, “The Road.” the early scenes, his gun (with two bullets remaining) looms large. Several times he instructs his son (Kodi Smit-McPhee) on how he must kill himself should the “bad men” get him. Better would have been to focus intently on the constant, simple tension of their survival — surveying the path ahead, gathering drips and drops of gas, making it through the night. Later, the Man

instructs the Boy: “Remember how we did things” — but we neverarightly see that, ourselves. This would have provided rhythm to the film, which pulses in the book. Instead, Hillcoat seems to be searching uncertainly for the scene-to-scene drama of the pair’s (admittedly aimless) wandering. He’s pushed dramatic scenes closer together, giving the film an episodic

feeling of little momentum. The real pathos of “The Road” is the relationship between the Man and the Boy, but it never resonates here. We don’t feel the father’s bond with his son, shown by McCarthy in spare dialogue, often the same lines echoed between the two. Mortensen is a fine actor capable of much, and he clearly gives himself to the desperation of the Man. In his ashen, torn face, we

sense his anguish, his searing doubt of having brought a child into such an ugly world. But he also doesn’t evoke the weighty, terse steadfastness of the Man. Smit-McPhee’s part is too much to fairly ask of a young actor, and the father-son bond never matures. He must be more than a frightened boy, but a child of another world. His goodness is, in some sense, the hope of mankind.

Will the holiday offerings get better? By ROBERT GRUBAUGH Of The Edge Friday saw the release of the “Twilight Saga: New Moon” and ever since there’s been little else that anyone is talking about in the movie news. I guess that is to be expected when a movie earns $143 million dollars on its way to setting a single day box office record. But was the movie any good? That’s the big question. I didn’t like it. I thought it was exceptionally average, which is supported by the film’s director, Chris Weitz, who stated recently that he’d made the film to appease its rabid fan-base more so than other folks who might drop by to see what the fuss is all about. The first sequel to 2008’s runaway hit “Twilight,” “New Moon” picks up with clumsy Everygirl Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) in Forks, Washington, where she’s finally found happiness with her eternal

love, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a vampire with tortured eyes, a tortured soul, and a certain tortured breathlessness about him. When a freak accident threatens her overall safety, Edwards decides that it’s time for him and his family to relocate. Certainly abandoning his lady love is the best way to keep her safe from the things, like him, that go bump in the night. Edward’s exit opens the door for Bella’s old friend, Jacob Black (Taylor Lautner) to make a move on the distraught apple of his eye. What follows is a typical middle child installment of Stephenie Meyer ’s franchise which introduces both the Volturi, an ageold group of Italian royalty vampires who set the rules for their kind, and Jacob’s pack of Quileute werewolves who, unfortunately, jump out of the gate looking nearly as realistic as a CGI Scooby-Doo. I was left neither swooning nor craving more. I guess I just need my vampire fix with a little Buffy

thrown in. “Twilight Saga: New Moon” runs 135 minutes and is rated PG-13 for some violence and action. I give this film one and a half stars out of four. “Old Dogs” is so named for its two stars. Dan (Robin Williams) and Charlie (John Travolta) are both getting old. Both are heading quickly toward the end of their 50s, though (Travolta at least) can still play younger. They’re both also a pair of dogs, chasing women all over the place. When a one night fling from seven years earlier turns up on his doorstep with the twins he never knew he had, Dan decides to take on the mantle of parenthood and make a go of it. Mom (Kelly Preston) is in town to serve a short-term jail sentence for public demonstration and it’s up to an old Dad and a “fun Uncle Charlie” to learn how to be adults in two short weeks.

The typical calamities ensue: Dad doesn’t know how to play make-believe; the big business deal interrupts quality family time; kids make elaborate messes that put everything in disorder. There’s a nice softie side to “Old Dogs,” but it doesn’t offer much in the humor department that is either original or very funny. Even the snicker-inducing bit from the trailer where Seth Green’s character is being nuzzled by a gorilla while timidly crooning Air Supply failed in the context of the movie. I was surprised to see a cameo by the late Bernie Mac, but feel free to skip this one, too. My movie recommendation for this week is “The Blind Side,” a great football-asmetaphor-for-life drama starring Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw. Old Dogs runs 96 minutes and is rated PG for some mild rude humor. I give this film one star out of four.

James Schmidt JAC to host works of Elsah artist By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Supporting local art is something we should all do. This area of the metro east seems to not only support local artists, but encourages all mediums of art by their patronage of the different art galleries, shows and educational programs offered. Jacoby Art Center in Alton is once again bringing a local artists' work to their venue for the public to enjoy. James K. Schmidt, who works from his studio in Elsah, is known for seeing patterns in nature through the lens of classic Modernist, distilling organic forms into a dynamic whole. He is a Master ’s of Fine Art graduate of Cranbrook Academy of Art, a professor of Architecture and Design at Cornell University and Professor Emeritus of Fine Art at Principia College. Schmidt’s work has been exhibited internationally and his works of art are in numerous public and private collections. “Eye Witness” is a collection by local artist James K. Schmidt at the Jacoby Arts Center now through Jan. 10, 2010, at 627 East Broadway in Alton. “Eye Witness records that which has inspired me to put into visual form facets of personal discovery,” says Schmidt. “Art of the last century has been concerned with aesthetic reconstruction. The visual world, with emphasis on natural phenomena, is what

By eye witness I mean responding to what one actually sees and the background associations that this seeing experience brings to thought. Art clarifies and gives fresh meaning to what is often unnoticed. It helps us recognize similarities and propels continuous exploration.” This exhibition includes paintings in oil and acrylic, pastel drawings, plaster castings, textile designs, and video art, many of which have not been seen. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information call 462-5222 or visit www.jameskschmidt.com.

Local artists host “Home Grown and Hand Picked” sale By DEBBIE SETTLE Of The Edge Whether you are looking for unique gift ideas or want to support local artists, seven local artists will be presenting unique and affordable holiday gift ideas in downtown Edwardsville at the first annual “Home Grown and Hand Picked Art Sale”. The show will be open on Sunday, Dec. 6, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. above The Stagger Inn, and will feature a variety of mediums including jewelry, photography, pottery and paintings. In addition to showcasing their work, the group is excited to promote awareness of the local arts. “So many people think

December 3, 2009

they have go to St. Louis for access to the arts when gallery quality work is being produced every day, right here, in their own neighborhood, “ says artist Charmaine Thuller. While many of the artists have shown in St. Louis galleries, the focus of this show is more on accessibility. “I’ve put together a unique and affordable collection that will provide great gift ideas for the holidays.,” says artist Kathy Kamm. This diverse group consists of both self-taught and formally educated artists. Both Annie Pennington and Jill Palone currently teach metalsmithing at SIUE and describe their work as, “wearable body art." Kamm, who has been producing functional pottery for over 30 years, has

also taught both children and adults while working as the director of an arts center. “My motivation for becoming an artist was to hang out with other artists,” said artist Gary Meyer, a self taught painter. Thuller, who was previously employed in commercial photography, found her passion in making fine art images. Richard Hutton, a graduate of SIUE, has been exploring drawing, oils, watercolors, collage and mixed media for over 30 years. The Stagger Inn is located at 104 East Vandalia, Edwardsville Ilinois. Live music and refreshments will be provided. For information regarding the show, please contact Charmaine Thuller at cthuller1@ gmail.com.

The Arts Artistic adventures Kemper Museum to host Sharon Lockhart exhibit Los Angeles-based conceptual artist Sharon Lockhart creates films and photographs that are at once rigorously formal and deeply humanistic, meticulously observing the details of everyday life while also probing the limits and intersections between the two mediums. As much as Lockhart’s photographs reveal cinematic qualities of staging and casting, so too do her films frequently engage a static camera and angles that recall photographic practices. In February 2010 the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum will present Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break, a oneperson exhibition showcasing the artist’s most recent series. Inspired by the shifting world economy and its effect on American labor, Lockhart spent a year observing and engaging workers at the Bath Iron Works, a major shipyard and U.S. Navy supplier located in Bath, Maine. The resulting works, collectively titled Lunch Break, include two large-scale film installations and three distinct sets of photographs that together explore the daily routines and social activities of workers during their time away from production. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the titular film Lunch Break, which consists of a single, slow-moving tracking shot down a long and seemingly endless interior corridor. To create the piece, Lockhart recorded a ten-minute walk-through — her first use of a mobile camera — then employed digital technology to stretch the length to eighty minutes. This extreme slow motion imbues ordinary lunchtime activities — eating, reading, talking and sleeping — with an almost baroque sense of anticipation, yet the film ultimately refuses cathartic narrative closure. The result is a meditative reflection, devoid of sentiment, on aspects of factory life that typically remain hidden from outside view. By contrast, the second film, Exit, is divided into five sections — one for each day of the workweek — and depicts workers as they depart the complex at the end of their shifts. Employing a static camera, the film recalls Louis Lumière’s historic Leaving the Lumière Factory (1895), a forty-six-second black-and-white short that is widely considered to be the first true motion picture. Yet Lockhart subtly reverses Lumière’s viewpoint. Rather than surveil workers as they stream toward an exterior camera, she films from within factory grounds, focusing on workers’ backs as they seemingly stage their own exits. The first of the three series of photographs centers on workers’ lunch boxes, emphasizing the ways in which stickers, labels, contents and other minute details suggest the personalities of their owners. A second series is devoted to the

December 3, 2009

independent businesses that exist within the factory — makeshift booths where workers sell hot dogs, coffee and other items to their colleagues. The third series consists of carefully composed images of workers lingering around lunch tables, at once recalling and revising historical traditions of group portraiture. Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break is organized by Sabine Eckmann, Ph.D., director and chief curator of the Kemper Art Museum. The exhibition will travel to the Colby College Museum of Art in Maine. Support for Sharon Lockhart: Lunch Break is provided by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts ;James M. Kemper, Jr.; the David Woods Kemper Memorial Foundation; the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency; Helen Kornblum; and members of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum. A fully illustrated color catalog will accompany the exhibition and will be distributed by the University of Chicago Press. The catalog includes essays by Eckmann and Matthias Michalka as well as an analysis of Lockhart’s creative process through an interview with artist James Benning. Also featured will be previously unpublished photographs by Lockhart that document, illustrate and recall workers’ social activities. SHARON LOCKHART Born in Norwood, MA, in 1964, Lockhart earned a BFA degree from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1991 and an MFA from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena in 1993. Her early work took frequent inspiration from 1970s art cinema. For the photo series Auditions (1994), Lockhart enlisted Los Angeles schoolchildren to restage the firstkiss scene from François Truffaut’s Small Change (1976). Her debut film, the short Khalil, Shaun, A Woman

L

under the Influence (1994), reenacted moments from John Cassavetes’ A Woman under the Influence (1974). Subsequent projects have revealed an almost ethnographic interest in “foreign” cultures, often blurring distinctions between documentary and intervention. Goshogoaka (1997) depicts a girls’ basketball team in rural Japan executing a series of highly choreographed drills. Teatro Amazonas (1999) focuses on an opera house audience in Manaus, Brazil, while an off-camera choir sings minimalist compositions. NO (2003) records the meticulous workday of Japanese farmers Yoko and Masa Ito. For Pine Flat (2006) Lockhart established a portrait studio amidst the Sierra Nevada Mountains and spent three years capturing images of local children as they play, rest, read and hang out.

Travel Travel briefs Relais and Chateaux travel association will include more urban hotels NEW YORK (AP) — Relais & Chateaux, an association of unique luxury hotels and gourmet restaurants, is planning to include more urban hotels. The Hotel St. Germain in Dallas, the Hotel Raphael in Rome and The Connaught in London were among 31 new properties added in November to the Relais & Chateaux collection, bringing its total membership to 475 members in 57 countries. Until now, 95 percent of Relais & Chateaux properties have been country hotels. “Our city hotels, like our other members, will be selected for their ability to convey a true sense of place to our guests, allowing them to recognize where they are in the world in a way that chain hotels cannot,” said Jaume Tapies, international president of Relais & Chateaux. Relais & Chateaux is identifying additional hotels in Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago as part of the urban expansion. In addition to the Hotel St. Germain in Dallas, the new members include one other in the U.S., Windham Hill, in West Townshend, Vt., and three more in North America: Trout Point Lodge of Nova Scotia, Canada; Esperanza, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and Sonora Resort in British Columbia, Canada. Other new Relais & Chateaux members include 17 properties in Europe, two in Africa, five in Asia, one in South America, and one in Australia. Three countries, Hungary, Macao and Taiwan, are newly represented this year. All members are listed in Relais & Chateaux’s newly published 2010 Guide, which for the first time this year includes a section dedicated to family travel with activities for children.

Senator wants review of frequent flier mile rules ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer is calling for a federal review of complaints by consumers that they are losing millions of frequent flier miles without notice in confusing agreements. He wants to establish industry rules for frequent flier programs that are billed as a free benefit to help attract and retain customers. There are few restrictions now on how airlines can manage and redeem the miles. Schumer says he suspects consumers are actually paying for frequent frier programs through air fare and fees. If so, he said rules are needed to protect consumers. He’s asking the Department of Transportation to review the complaints. “As the holiday travel season approaches, we cannot let airlines and credit card companies continue to fly off with hard-earned frequent flier miles,” Schumer said. “When a consumer accumulates valuable frequent flier miles, they should not have to constantly worry that they are going to expire with little or no notification from the airline.” InsideFlyer magazine finds the lack of consumer protections on frequent flier miles a common concern. Complaints include miles expiring without clear notice and a frequent change in the value of the miles, according to magazine spokeswoman Michelle O’Neill. Other complaints include confusion over how many miles can be accumulated for certain trips, O’Neill said. Ten trillion unused frequent-flier miles worth $165 billion are in circulation now, Schumer said. But 20 percent of them may never be redeemed, he said.

ResponsibleTravel company cancels carbon offset program BRIGHTON, England (AP) — ResponsibleTravel.com has stopped offering a carbon offset program for travelers. The company was one of the first travel organizations to introduce carbon offsets in 2002. The concept involves offsetting the amount of carbon emissions created by air travel by inviting travelers to pay for the planting of trees or other actions that reduce carbon elsewhere. Carbon emissions contribute to global warming. “We believe that the travel industry’s priority must be to reduce carbon emissions, rather than to offset,” said company founder Justin Francis in a statement on the ResponsibleTravel.com Web site. “Too often offsets are being used by the tourism industry in developed countries to justify growth plans on the basis that money will be donated to projects in developing countries.” Francis said he agreed with a report by the organization Friends of the Earth, which called carbon offsets a “dangerous distraction” that create a “medieval pardon for us to carry on behaving in the same way or worse.” ResponsibleTravel is instead asking travelers to fly less, take trains where possible or vacation closer to where they live, and to make lifestyle changes at home to reduce emissions. More advice and tips are available at http:// www.responsibletravel.com/carboncaution.

Adirondacks: Stargazing parties, holiday events LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) — If the Adirondacks fall off of your vacation radar once summer ends and autumn’s foliage fades, you might be surprised to hear that hotels, lodges and attractions stay open year-round in places like Lake George, Saranac Lake and Lake Placid. Stargazing is a popular activity in the region, thanks to clear night skies unaffected by city lights. The Adirondack Loj in Lake Placid is planning a Meteor Mania event starting at 10 p.m. Nov. 17, when experts are forecasting a meteor shower will take place. The Loj will also have a telescope available for viewing Jupiter. On Nov. 28, Lake George will h o s t a “ L i t e U p t h e Vi l l a g e ” party with caroling, a visit from Santa and tree-lighting in Shepard Park.

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — The Snowy Range Ski Area is scheduled to open in late November this year. The Medicine Bow National Forest announced that the downhill slopes 30 miles west of Laramie will open under the management of the First National Bank of Wyoming. The bank took control of the ski area last year when its owners sunk too far into debt. More than 20,000 people per year visit the ski area, which is located on Wyoming Highway 130 near the mountain town of Centennial. The ski area is scheduled to open Nov. 28.

Grandfather Mountain in NC to be run by nonprofit GRANDFATHER MOUNTAIN, N.C. (AP) — A mainstay of western North Carolina tourism is making a transition from attraction to a portion of a foundation. Grandfather Mountain has announced that the attraction famous for Mildred the Bear and the Mile High Swinging Bridge is now an arm of the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation. The park was originally a family-owned business. The late Hugh Morton opened it in 1952, and one of the most popular attractions was a black bear named Mildred who’d been adopted from a zoo. The park still has a wildlife habitat where visitors can see eight black bears. The Grandfather Mountain S t e w a rd s h i p F o u n d a t i o n i s a nonprofit corporation established to preserve Grandfather Mountain, operate the nature park in the public interest, and participate in educational and research activities. All proceeds from the sale of attraction tickets and souvenirs will be reinvested in the mission of the foundation.

Tourism downturn leads Bahamas resort to close NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — A Bahamian hotel operator has closed one of his resort properties as the recession slashes occupancy rates across the vast archipelago. The 50-room Royal Palm Resort & Suites was closed in early November by hotelier Mario Donato, and guests with reservations were moved to the Xanadu Beach Resort & Marina on Grand Bahama Island, which Donato also owns, according to Xanadu spokeswoman Tiffany Anderson. The closure comes as tourism struggles in the region. E a r l i e r t h i s y e a r, t h e F o u r Seasons Resort Great Exuma in the Bahamas and the Nikki Beach Resort & Spa in Turks and Caicos both closed down.

Travel

m u l Tu A fascinating destination any time of year By CATHY TADE For The Edge Solar powered cabanas set on pristine powdery beaches facing a tranquil, clear sea evokes images of a remote island setting in the Pacific – a place that would require extensive travel and expense to visit. Instead, Tulum, Mexico, one of Riviera Maya’s last hold-outs against major resort developers, is surprisingly just a short flight away. An easy two hour drive south of the airport in Cancun, Tulum is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of that megatourista metropolis. T h e n u m e ro u s p i c t u re s q u e cabanas available for rent in Tulum are eco-friendly – most offering only solar-powered energy, if any at all. Thatched roof cabanas featuring ceiling fans, mosquito nets and candles offer an exotic ambience. Deciding to rent a rustic beach front cabana in Mexico can certainly seem a bit unnerving for guests from abroad. However, upon arrival, guests will feel at ease in the idyllic setting. It doesn’t take long for most visitors to ditch the cell phones and electrical

sunsets. One of the best beach front cabana clusters is Tita Tulum. Tita Tulum’s accommodations consists of a collection of eight bungalows that surround a jungle-themed outdoor restaurant. Tita Tulum states as its mission: “to preserve the ecology, magic and enchantment of the area” and it does just that. Descriptions and pictures of Tita Tulum Cabanas can be found at www.titatulum.com. Many other beachfront bungalows and inns can also be previewed at www.tulum.com Tulum’s downtown area, “Tulum Pueblo,” also offers a variety of accommodations. These can be previewed at www.locogringo.com. This is an excellent Web site that has maps and travel tips for the area and surrounding places in the Yucatan. An entertaining and helpful restaurant message board is kept current by visitors to the area, who hail from all parts of the globe. Travelers use this site to share essential tips and valuable information about the best food and entertainment in Tulum and beyond. The Tulum Mayan Ruins are the main reason this area welcomes so

Mayan gazing at the same dazzling beach and its majestic sea beyond. The fact that this notable archeological site tumbles down to a strikingly beautiful beach is a bonus for visitors. After tours, most visitors make their way to the picturesque beach. Seeing families from all over the world enjoying the beach together is uplifting and entertaining in itself. The ruin’s visitor’s center is helpful in providing additional historical information and guides. Snacks and gifts can also be found here. Visitors may want to plan to visit the ruins in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the crowds. More information and pictures of the Tulum Mayan Ruins can be found at

many visitors. Tulum Mayan Ruins, the most visited archeological site in Mexico, are also the most significant in the State of Quintana Roo. Sitting atop the temple platform and observing the stunning landscape to the sea beyond is awe inspiring for visitors. Here, it is easy to imagine a

http://www.mayasites.com/tulum. html. The Tulum area is also known for one of the most mystifying land forms in all of Mexico, “cenotes.” Considered sacred by ancient Mayans, these strange underground formations have been caused by

subterranean fresh water rivers. Many cenotes in the Tulum area are located on private farm land, and arrangements should be made with proprietors before visits. Those wishing to cavern dive in the cenotes must be certified scuba divers. The background and qualifications of dive shops and guides should be verified before excursions are undertaken With all the beauty and history of the Tulum area, it is incredible that only a short distance to the north is one of the natural attractions in the world, Xel-Ha Eco Park. Travel expert Canadian Chris Robinson was so impressed with the park, he recently named it one of the top ten “Best Fun Places of the World.” Xel-Ha is a perfect Tulum day-trip destination. Robinson writes “Xel-Ha is an eco-park on the Mayan Riviera which has something for everyone: it’s a natural aquarium, water park, ancient Mayan site, soft adventure playground and more, all set in a verdant jungle.” A natural water park situated on an ocean inlet with unmatched sea and river views, Xel-Ha. is an amazing place, unlike any other. This park carefully balances recreation with natural preservation. As a testament to this, Xel-Ha is the first natural park in the world to attain Green Globe Certified Silver status. It follows the world’s highest green standards for a natural park, and, as a result, is often referred to as “the most uniquely beautiful natural aquarium of the world.” Activities here include hiking, kayaking, biking, cliff jumping, caving, snorkeling, and swimming. Active nature abounds in this natural park; exotic, colorful birds perch from trees, wild pigs tramp through the woods and iguanas occasionally surprise guests in the showers. Starfish, stingrays and other unique sea creatures are also visible in the crystal blue lagoons. The river float trip is the central experience of Xel-Ha. Guests can choose between floating in an inner tube or swimming and snorkeling along the way. Each method of “river travel” has its advantages. The “inicio de la rio,” the beginning

of the river, is a surreal experience. Here, river trippers travel through a dark, mysterious grove of partially submerged mangrove trees. The shadowy mangrove section eventually opens up to a larger river area that offers plenty of stop and play spots for adults and kids alike. Adventurous souls are drawn to ascend “Pena Escalable” and jump from the Cliff of Courage “Piedra del Valor.” Park photographers are on hand to capture guests’ daring leaps into the water below. Hesitant cliff jumpers are often humorously heckled and encouraged by onlookers. Other stops on the river float trip include grottos, Mayan caves, floating bridges, and “Trepachanga,” a walking rope challenge. Here, participants on each end of the ropechallenge try to knock the opposing group off of the ropes and into the water below. The situation is humorous and challenging, especially because many participants do not speak the same language, but still must find ways to work together to avoid being bounced from the ropes and dumped into the water below. For visitors who prefer more relaxing activities, Xel-Ha hosts a certified massage center, a restful hammock island and a walking path of consciousness. The park’s all inclusive package includes unlimited food and drink at four restaurants, two bars, and a snack shop. For additional fees, Xel-Ha’s “Instituto Acuatico” also offers Snuba, Sea Trek adventures, and dolphin swims. The park is open from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., 365 days a year. All-inclusive tickets can be purchased at a discount online. Currently, adults are $67.50; children are $33.75. More information can be found at www.xelha.com Current, valid passports are required to travel to Mexico. In addition, new rules have been enacted which affect single parents, guardians, and other non-parental relatives traveling abroad with children. Before taking a trip to Mexico, travelers from the United States should check current international travel rules and regulations at http://travel.state. gov/travel

Lighting up the season

American Farm Heritage Museum plans holiday display The American Heritage Farm Museum may not have always been the place to look for a Christmas celebration, but that has all changed now. Oliver Schafer, a former resident of Granite City and Wolburn, hosted a grand light display on his personal property for a number years for the community to enjoy. A short time ago, Schafer decided to move from the area, but didn’t want his beloved display to leave the area. He had accumulated approximately $40,000 in Christmas decor, building approximately 40 building scenes that depict Christmas. Schafer made an offer to The American Farm Heritage Museum of Greenville to purchase the displays for half of what he had put into it. The museum governance considered the offer and decided that they would make the purchase. Since the purchase, more than 185 volunteers begin several weeks before the opening at the end of November to set up more than 40 displays along with a railroad that encompasses the 17 acre grounds of the display. Pulled by a soon to be installed steam engine, families can come aboard for a small fee and see the perimeter of the display from the locomotive. Also available at the display will be free refreshments for the visitors. The display is free, but guests can choose to make a donation at the end of the visit. The proceeds from the donations will be used to cover the costs of the display and help add new items for upcoming years. The volunteers are in the process of finishing a large building, 200 feet long by 100 feet wide, to be used for upcoming displays and also to be available for rental throughout the rest of the year to be used for a variety of occasions.

The educational opportunities for the museum extend to teaching

agriculture, math, science, ecological science, exploring alternative energy, agricultural demonstrations, special events, etc. Not only do people enjoy the displays of Farm Heritage Days on the Museum grounds, but the annual Outhouse Festival and other events. The location for the Christmas Lights Wonderland, along with the museum

and aforementioned festivals, is at Exit 45 on I-70 at Greenville, south on 127 to Museum Ave., and then watch for signs. The Christmas display is open Monday through Sunday, beginning Friday, Nov. 27 and ending Friday, Jan. 1, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. each evening. Santa Claus will be available every Friday and Saturday

evening, so bring your lists and your cameras. C o m e o u t t o G re e n v i l l e t o enjoy the sights and sounds of the Christmas season. For more info, call 664-4189 or 267-3050. For information about the museum and educational opportunities, call 664-3050.

Family Focus Hoarding disorder goes prime time JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — F o r y e a r s , n o o n e o n C re s t Drive paid much attention to the little white house with pink trim. The front yard was overgrown with shrubs and three cars sat motionless in the driveway. Neighbors on the quiet s t r e e t k n e w t h e o w n e r, a retired psychologist named Carina DeOcampo, was an odd, private person — even her family would leave bags of food on the front steps, then quickly drive away. But folks here were shocked in early October when police forced their way into the home and discovered the 72-year-old DeOcampo dead, surrounded by six feet of garbage that packed the house. DeOcampo was a hoarder. “She had trails throughout the house, from her chair to t h e k i t c h e n t o h e r b e d ro o m , ” said neighbor David Collins, who peered in the front door after DeOcampo’s body was removed. “It was unbelievable.” T h i s y e a r, c o m p u l s i v e h o a rd e r s a re i n t h e s p o t l i g h t . Books, movies and TV’s “Hoarders” — a popular A&E reality show that began its second season Nov. 30 — have all brought the disorder out of its shame-filled past. Some hoarding experts worry that the media sensationalizes the problem while making solutions seem tidier than they really are. But they concede any attention may entice people w h o s u ff e r f ro m t h e d i s o rd e r to obtain help. Stories like DeOcampo’s spring up around the U.S. with re g u l a r i t y ; s o m e h o a rd e r s a re fined tens of thousands of dollars by local authorities for zoning or health code violations, while others are arrested on animal abuse charges after collecting dogs or cats. Hoarders’ family and friends often give up in frustration, unable to help clean out a dangerous living space. O n t h e H o a r d e r s T V s h o w, people with the disorder recognize they have a problem, then work with psychiatrists and organization experts t o h e l p c l e a n u p . Vi e w e r s are fascinated; the show is the number one “freshman” nonfiction series on cable for people ages 25-54. “There’s just a core relateability that people feel for this subject,” said Robert Sharenow, A&E’s senior vice president of programming. “People look at this show and see themselves

December 3, 2009

Experts wonder if the media has sensationalized the affliction to a degree, or see people they know.” An estimated 2 million people in the U.S. suffer from compulsive hoarding, according to several mental health groups that treat the afflicted. Hoarding is an obsessivecompulsive mental health disorder defined as the acquisition of, and inability to discard, things. Sometimes those things are new; in many cases, it is literally garbage, as in the case of Kitty Lewis, an O k l a h o m a City woman whose decomposing body was found in her mold- and cat-infested home in May. Some, like Paula Kotakis of San Francisco, don’t have problems accumulating. “I’m what is called a passive hoarder — most hoarders have a compulsive acquisition problem, buying or getting stuff,” she said. “For me, stuff comes in the normal way, with papers, mail and subscriptions. M y p ro b l e m i s , i t n e v e r w e n t out.” Kotakis, 51, feared throwing things away. “If I get rid of this, I may need this sometime,” she would think. Kotakis, who was treated for obsessive-compulsive hand washing years ago, has used many of the same behavioral and cognitive therapy tools to treat the hoarding. She says her house is under control — and an online support group she founded helps. Few resources were available when Kotakis realized she was a hoarder in 1998. There’s more help now, in part because e v e r y o n e from Oprah to bestselling writer E.L. Doctorow has tackled the topic. “The publicity is definitely a double-edged sword,” she said. “I get very upset about the sensationalism. It’s a long treatment process, it takes a long time to clear a house.” J e re m i e B a r b e r o f t h e S o u t h Florida-based Clutterbusters has received more calls this year because of the media attention. They’re from people who think they are hoarders because they have a messy home. “A lot really aren’t,” he said. “I ask them questions like, ’Does your plumbing work? Can you cook? Use the shower? Do you normally keep all of your blinds closed?”’ Barber ’s clients include a woman who was removed from

her home because of the filth. It took Barber and his wife 140 hours to clear 84,000 pounds of stuff from the structure — all while wearing Hazmat suits. Psychologist Michael To m p k i n s , w h o r e c e n t l y published a book to help h o a rd e r s ’ f a m i l i e s , s a i d t h o s e with the affliction make for good television because the situations are often “high drama.” He hopes people see hoarding as a mental health problem. “These people aren’t any d i ff e re n t t h a n y o u a n d I , ” h e said. “ T h e re a re p e o p l e w i t h t h i s p ro b l e m y o u m a y w o r k w i t h . You think their desk is a little messy but you would never guess their home looks the way it looks. It’s not about a c h a r a c t e r f l a w. T h e y ’ re n o t people who don’t care.” Hoarding experts and family members say that the situations

portrayed in the media often show an unrealistic version of a hoarder ’s life: after the c l e a n u p , h o m e s a re s p a r k l i n g clean, and the problem is gone. Cynthia Lester made the documentary film, “My M o t h e r ’ s G a rd e n , ” a b o u t h e r mother ’s struggle with the disorder. Lester filmed the painful and quick cleanup of the packed house — which was f a l l i n g a p a r t a n d re a d y t o b e condemned by authorities. Although Lester ’s mother is now living in a group home and getting some treatment for her problem, it’s been difficult to obtain the intense therapy she needs because she doesn’t have insurance. A n d , s a i d L e s t e r, “ t h e hoarding continues to be a problem. She’s collecting again, she’s out all night.” In Jacksonville, Carina DeOcampo’s family didn’t want

to talk about her problems. The county’s medical examiner said she died of “natural causes.” Nearly two months after DeOcampo’s body was found, t h e re m n a n t s o f h e r d i s o rd e r are still evident. Red tape with the words “DANGER-DO NOT ENTER” is stretched across the property’s chain-link fence and a notice of condemnation is stapled to the door. While the shrubs and the cars have been cleared from the front yard, a giant red trash bin sits in the driveway. The home, neighbors say, has yet to be emptied.

Dining Delights

Memphis barbecue Nobody does it like the Neelys By BILL TUCKER Of The Edge Just as you don’t meet Emeril Lagasse when you visit his restaurant or Paula Deen when you visit her’s, you don’t meet any of the Neelys when you visit their’s. Food Network stars are busy people, writing cookbooks and taping episodes and coming up with all those recipes. They can’t be in the kitchen of their restaurants, cutting up the vegetables or sweating over a hot grill. But their restaurants do serve as reminders as why they are stars and when it comes to barbecue, the Neelys prove to be superstars. Back in 1988, four brothers – Gaelin, Tony, Mark and Pat – opened up the first Neely’s restaurant in downtown Memphis. The story goes that they had to borrow $20,000 from their grandmother to get off the ground. But it didn’t take long before they were soaring. There are now four Neely’s Bar-BQue locations – two in Memphis and two in Nashville. The family became so well known that one of the brothers, Pat, and his wife Gina, launched the highly successful “Down Home with the Neelys” on the Food Network. One taste of their barbecue will have you hooked (and yes, it’s better

than Corky’s, another Memphis barbecue standard bearer.) On a long soccer weekend, we visited the Neely’s location on Mount Morah Road in Memphis. Unless you’re with a large group – like a soccer team – there’s no need to make reservations and there’s no need to dress up. Despite their success, the Neelys are sticking to their roots, keeping their atmosphere down home and their prices amazingly reasonable. The restaurant, which must do a tremendous carry-out business given the size of the lobby, is decorated somewhere between fishing lodge and medieval castle with a floor suitable for line dancing. (You’ll just have to visit if you can’t picture it.) The menu features a wide selection of barbecue and the most expensive dinner tops out at $12.49. The Neelys don’t deal in assemblyline appetizers such as potato skins, nachos or onion peels. They assume you came for barbecue and that’s what you’re going to get. The choices include turkey, pork ribs, beef ribs, pulled pork and

chicken. The sides include french fries, barbecue beans, cole slaw, and potato salad. A quick check of what other patrons were eating indicated that just about everything comes with cole slaw – and it’s used as a topper on the three different sausages they offer. Neely’s also serves up bar-b-que spaghetti which is described on the menu as “(Mother’s Choice) Mixture of bar-b-que and spaghetti sauce poured over pasta and pork.” It’s served with cole slaw, too. Also of note are the chicken wings, which are served mild or hot. The wings aren’t cut so when you order five wings, you are served five whole wings. Accustomed as we are to the sweet barbecue sauce of the St. Louis area, we stuck with the mild wings and weren’t disappointed. As a compliment to the cole slaw, the barbecue beans are quite possibly the best beans of that variety we’ve every enjoyed. Meaty and delicious. But again, it’s all about barbecue. The Neelys don’t skimp on portions and we found no fat or gristle on the ribs or in the pulled pork we enjoyed. Even without the sauce, the meat was delicious. But the sauce wins. It’s somewhere between sweet and spicy. Thick and delicious, it’s obvious why grandmother’s $20,000 loan was a good investment. Like every Southern restaurant, the sweet tea flows constantly and the waitresses are eager to know if “y’all” are ready to order. Next time you’re in Memphis, look up the Neelys. You won’t be able to have your photo taken with them, but you’ll sure enjoy their barbecue.

Dining Delights Get creative with Thanksgiving leftovers For some people, the whole point of Thanksgiving dinner is to have leftovers. These are the people who intentionally buy a monster-size bird, mash way too many potatoes and pop an extra pie in the oven. “In our house, the leftovers are the most exciting part of Thanksgiving. It’s such a great opportunity to use your creative juices to come up with new ways to use them up,” says Allie Lewis Clapp, food director at Real Simple magazine. And if inspiration fails? "Truthfully,” admits Clapp, mother of a 7-month-old girl, “this year, we may be whizzing them in the food processor, then stowing them in the freezer for the baby to eat for the next few months.” Don’t want to resort to making baby food? Here are some other ideas for the second and third days of Thanksgiving dinner. TURKEY “A plate of reheated feast is great for a day or so, but after that, you crave something different” says Ann Taylor Pittman, senior food editor at Cooking Light magazine. “Luckily, turkey’s neutral flavor makes it incredibly adaptable, going from straightforward Americana to Asian to Latin to many flavors in between.” • Turn leftover turkey and Brussels sprouts or green beans into an Asian stir fry, says Eve Felder, an associate dean at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. Season it with hoisin and soy sauce and serve over rice. • Turkey samosas are an easy way to take leftover turkey out of the Thanksgiving realm. Clapp suggests cutting store-bought refrigerated rolled pie crust into eight triangles. Mix 1 cup shredded leftover turkey with 1/4 cup mango chutney. Top the triangles with the turkey mixture and 1/2 cup of leftover mashed potatoes. Brush the edges with water, then fold the dough over to pinch together the corners and seal the edges. Bake at 375 F until golden brown, about 25 to 35 minutes. • Or make barbecue turkey sandwiches. Clapp suggests heating leftover turkey and adding barbecue sauce. Serve it over soft sandwich rolls with a sliced celery salad with crumbled blue cheese and vinaigrette. • Holley Grainger, food editor at MyRecipes.com, suggests a turkey Alfredo pizza. “Collard greens and leftover turkey meld beautifully with store-bought Alfredo sauce and nutty fontina cheese, resulting in an easy yet inventive meal,” she says. POTATOES Leftover mashed potatoes never quite reheat to their former creamy glory, so combine them with other ingredients (such as cheese) that enhance their creaminess. Or use them in applications where their texture is completely transformed, says Cooking Light’s Pittman.

December 3, 2009

• Pittman recommends forming cakes out of mashed potatoes, egg, cheddar cheese and cooked bacon, then rolling them in panko breadcrumbs and frying them. • F o r a c o l d d a y, C l a p p recommends a creamy mashed potato and leek soup. Saute 3 chopped leeks and 1 chopped fennel bulb in olive oil. Add 3 cups of leftover mashed potatoes and 6 cups of chicken broth. Cook until heated through, then puree. • And Grainger says all those sweet potatoes can be turned into sweet potato pancakes. Serve with maple syrup, butter and fresh fruit. Or try mashed potato latkes with zucchini and dill. STUFFING • L e f t o v e r s t u ff i n g c a n b e spooned into portobello mushroom caps, baked, then topped with grated Parmesan. • Clapp likes to use leftover stuffing in a meatloaf with a marmalade glaze. Combine 1 1/2 pounds of ground beef with 2 cups of stuffing and 1 large egg, then season with salt and pepper. On a foil-lined baking sheet, form the mixture into a 9-inch loaf. Bake at 400 F for 30 minutes, then brush with a mixture of 1/4 cup orange marmalade and 1/4 cup wholegrain mustard and cook for another 20 minutes. CRANBERRIES An easy yet fresh option for cranberry sauce is pairing it with cheese, says Clapp. Try spreading it on a ham and grilled cheese sandwich, using it as a topping for spicy cheese and

jalapeno quesadillas, or simply placing it on a cheese board to accompany tangy or smooth cheeses. ••• Marcela Valladolid, author of “Fresh Mexico,” uses a version of this glaze to combine her Mexican roots with the classic Thanksgiving staple. The turkey also can be stuffed, but will take longer to cook. ROASTED TURKEY IN APRICOT-CHILI GLAZE Start to finish: 3 1/2 hours Makes a 12- to 14-pound turkey with gravy 3 cups chicken broth 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/4 cup tequila 2 Anaheim chilies, stemmed, seeded and cut into large chunks 3/4 cup apricot jam, divided Salt and ground black pepper, to taste 12- to 14-pound turkey Heat the oven to 350 F. In a medium saucepan over medium, combine the broth, butter, tequila, chilies and 1/2 cup of the apricot jam. Bring to a boil and cook until the chilies are soft and tender. Transfer the mixture to a blender and puree until smooth. Press the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer. Discard the solids. Return 1 1/2 cups of the mixture to the saucepan, reserving the rest for the gravy. Simmer over medium for 10 minutes, or until reduced by half. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of the apricot jam to make the glaze. Season with salt and pepper.

Place the turkey on a rack set in a large roasting pan. Carefully separate the turkey’s skin from the flesh, trying to avoid breaking the skin. Pour half of the glaze under the skin and rub it into the turkey. Replace the skin, then rub the remaining mixture over the outside. Wrap the wing tips in foil and roast for 1 hour. Cover the turkey with foil, then roast for another 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the breast registers 160 F and the thickest part of the thigh reaches 170 F. Allow the turkey to rest in the pan for 10 minutes. Transfer the turkey to a serving platter and let it rest another 10 minutes. While the turkey rests on the platter, place the roasting pan with the drippings on the stovetop. Bring to a simmer over low, then stir in the reserve chili sauce. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula to loosen any brown bits. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until thickened, then season with salt and pepper. Strain out the chunks or leave them in to add texture. (Recipe adapted from Marcela Va l l a d o l i d ’ s “ F re s h M e x i c o , ” Clarkson Potter, 2009) ••• If you want the taste of homemade with the convenience of prepared, try for a middle ground with stuffing. Start with a 14-ounce bag of herbed stuffing mix, then saute whatever you enjoy. Onions, celery and fresh herbs are an obvious start. In this version of doctored

stuffing, we also add sweet Italian sausage, dried apples and fresh sage. Be sure to remove the sausage from the casings. Any variety of packaged stuffing mix can be used with this recipe. SAUSAGE STUFFING WITH APPLES AND SAGE Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 12 6 tablespoons butter 2 small red onions, finely diced 4 celery sticks, finely diced 4 to 5 ounces dried apples, cut into thin strips 1 pound sweet or spicy Italian sausage 3 cups chicken broth, divided 14-ounce bag herb stuffing mix 15 fresh sage leaves, lightly chopped Salt and ground black pepper, to taste Heat the oven to 350 F. I n a l a rg e s a u t e p a n o v e r medium-high, melt the butter. Add the onion and celery, then saute for about 3 minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Add the apples and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove the sausage from the casings and add to the pan. Saute until the sausage is fully cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add 2 1/2 cups of the broth and the herbed stuffing mix. Mix well. Add the sage and toss well. Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray, then pour in the remaining 1/2 cup of broth. Spoon the stuffing into the casserole dish, then bake for about 10 to 15 minutes.
