0ENTAPUS !CTUALLY

COURTESY PAUL ROBERTSON

// by Amber Helsel

A

round the holidays each year, if you drive down Poplar Boulevard in Belhaven, you may notice an odd line-up of characters. In front of a little, white house with black shutters, a nativity scene has the usual suspects—Mary, Joseph, the three wise men and baby Jesus—but you may also notice some seemingly misplaced creatures. Beside Santa Claus sits a “pentapus” (an octopus with only five tentacles instead of eight), a lobster and an alligator. The house belongs to Jacksonian Anne Robertson, who grew up in Belhaven and has lived in the house for 19 years. She and her son, Paul Robertson, who studies chemical engineering at Georgia Technical College, built the neo-nativity scene in 2004, the year he came home with a bachelor’s degree in Latin American studies from Colby College in Maine. The original cephalopod was actually a quadrapus. “I had a lot of free time on my hands but not a lot of money,” he says. “I decided to build a nativity scene, but I didn’t want to pay for the material, so I just got a bunch of pallets and took them apart Work. Live. Play. Prosper.

and put them back together again in the shape of the things that I made.” Somebody stole the quadrapus around 2006, and Robertson still doesn’t know who took it. He built the current version, the pentapus, before the 2007 holiday season and brings it out each year. The idea for the nativity scene came from the film “Love Actually,” where, during a play, Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus and the angels are surrounded by creatures such as a lobster and an octopus. The scene in the film made Robertson realize that he could do his own version. “I didn’t want to do a typical nativity scene with cows and sheep,” he says. “... Moving back to Jackson, I guess I had some creative energy, so I took it out on some pallets and had fun.” Andy Hilton of SwingLab gave him tools, wood pallets and a place to work, and Robertson began his creation. What you may also not notice is that while Santa has a pale complexion, Mary, Joseph, and the three wise men have darker skin, denoting their Middle Eastern heritage. Baby Jesus’ complexion is a mix between the two shades. 11

Fertile Ground

The Year of the Creative Economy // by Dustin Cardon

O

n Nov. 6, Jackson attorney, developer and Jackson Chamber of Commerce board member David Pharr brings TEDx Jackson, the first TED conference in Mississippi. TED, which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design, began in 1984 as a one-time conference founded by architect Richard Saul Wurman and broadcast designer Harry Marks to come together and discuss innovative ideas. The first event featured people such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology Media Lab founder Nicholas Negroponte. TED became an annual event in 1990, and the conferences eventually came under the direction of British magazine publisher Chris Anderson, a former computer journalist. TED conferences address a wide range of subjects on culture and science research and practice, often through storytelling. Speakers have up to 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging ways they can. TEDx is a division of TED geared toward communities that want to have a TED-like event. Just in time for the “year of the creative economy,” the theme for TEDx Jackson is “Fertile Ground,” and the speakers will highlight creative opportunities in Mississippi. At press time, the TEDx Jackson speaker lineup included 20 people representing a wide array of professions from across the state, and each will have about 10 minutes to present their topic.

There’s a Cow in the Governor’s 2IßFH // by Micah Smith

ackson residents know the Mississippi State Fair for big entertainment, fun rides and fried foods by the truckloads. Meanwhile, only a short walk away, the Old Capitol Museum (100 S. State St., 601.576.6920) invites more scholastically minded visitors to learn about our state’s history. But did you know that the State Fair and the Old Capitol were once one and the same? The Mississippi Legislature OK’d the state’s first agricultural expo in 1840, agreeing to use the swampy fields east of the capitol building, the same area where the current fair is held every October. “Way back when, the fair was really only an agriculture exhibition,” says Clay Williams, director of the Old Capitol Museum. “Now we think of the fair mostly as rides and food, but in the early days, it was a showcase of farming technology.”

The first official state fair was in 1859. By 1903, workers completed construction on a new Capitol building on High Street, Jackson’s third and Jackson’s current one. The old building was left unoccupied and soon fell into disrepair, and not for the last time. Politicians considered selling or demolishing the expensive structure, the latter of which citizens largely opposed, but the city also didn’t want to spend money on its upkeep. A temporary solution came in the fall of 1904. The state fair, then called the Mississippi Industrial Exposition, moved into the Old Capitol, filling every corner including the former state library and governor’s office. The building’s decorative entrance offered a natural access point for fair attendees. If only to put off a permanent decision, the Legislature agreed to extend the State Fair’s stay. “From 1906 to 1912, they leased the building to what amounted to the State Fair Commission,” Williams says. “At one point in time, the fairgrounds moved closer to the backdoor of the building. … They brought cotton bales, food products, livestock and all kinds of tools into the building.” The fair, held in late October

or early November every year, paid the city only $10 to use the location each year, but the lease essentially made the fair commission the caretakers of the Old Capitol. They were responsible for roof and window repairs, removing all booths, signs and banners after each fair, and for preserving the building’s remaining archives. The state fair began to host band concerts and other entertainment to expand its audience in the next few years, becoming more like its modern-day iteration. While the fair became more popular during the lease, the new tenants weren’t beneficial for the Old Capitol’s future. “Unfortunately, it did nothing but contribute to the building’s decay,” Williams says. “Bringing in livestock and equipment is obviously not going to do much for the building’s long-term upkeep.” Thanks to early historical preservationists such as Theodore Link, the architect of the new capitol building, and current caretakers such as Williams, the Old Capitol survived its stint as State Fair host, and both attractions have become treasured pieces of Jackson and Mississippi history.

After the construction of the current Capitol building, the Old Capitol hosted all manner of animal and agriculture for the state fair. TRIP BURNS

Of more than 200 submissions, Ray included 63 that span a wide spectrum of experiences, demonstrating that “aesthetics transcend social limitations,â€? he says. Some pieces “hold fast to this idea of queerness as a defining quality and there are those that, though queerness may be present, it’s not the defining quality of the piece.â€? In “This is Our World,â€? Allison writes: “Art is not meant to be polite, secret, coded or timid. Art is the sphere in which that impulse to hide and lie is the most dangerous. In art, transgression is holy, revelation is sacrament, and pursuing one’s personal truth the only sure validation.â€? “The Queer Southâ€? puts personal truths on the page. It is revealing, enlightening, moving, sometimes painful, often hilarious, and always deeply, queerly southern and a joy to read. If it presents defining qualities of being queer in the South, it also defines the human experience. “There are moments when you realize that, ‘Oh. These people or this group of people fundamentally disagree with my existence, and they view me as a lesser human being.’ Maybe you have those thoughts more growing up in the South where fundamentalism reigns supreme, and limits your crayon box to black and white. That becomes a really tough thing,â€? Ray says. Such voices can be inspiring, he says, if we let them. “You can either be defeated by that and say, ‘f*ck all’ to the whole thing, or you can say, ‘OK. Well, what can we do with this?’ ‌ You can view your queerness as either a hazard or some sort of obstacle that you have to get over, or you can view your queerness as an asset that forms your perspective and makes you more sensitive or empathic to other people’s positions. “I choose the latter.â€?

Run by Janice and Dennis Cameron since Mississippi Department of History and between 100,000 and 125,000 vehicles daily. 1993, Cups has acquired the next-door space forBefore the matter was scheduled to appear merly occupied by a realty company. Although Archives, which officially named Fondren a hisfull expansion details are still in the development toric district in late September, has to sign off before the city council, the mayor softened on the stages, for now the additional room provides a of the plans to ensure the hotel gibes with the position that it was Lakeland-or-bust for Costco’s meeting space for the company’s executives area’s aesthetic. “Because Fondren is so unique, Jackson hopes, suggesting that other locations and additional storage so that space in the existing café can be opened up for more seating, said Cups Fondren Manager Cody Cox. Meanwhile, moves at a local coffee company are percolating elsewhere in the Jackson metro. Natalie and John Baten of Flowood have acquired three former Seattle Drip stores and rebranded them under a new banner. Seattle Drip, which began in Mississippi, has several locations in the state and one in Homewood, Ala. When the existing franchise contracts on the three coffee shops in Flowood, Madison and Flowood expired, it allowed the couple to turn the businesses into Mocha Mugs. The kiosks are at 1800 W. Government St. in Brandon, 119 Grandview Blvd., in Madison and 5610 Highway 25 in Flowood. In October, Mayor Tony Yarber said that Costco may be able to go in locations other than the controversial one on Lakeland Drive near Smith-Wills Stadium and several museums.

Forward in Fondren

With Fondren’s growing popularity as a place to eat and play, it only makes sense that the neighborhood will soon become a place to stay overnight. In August, Sunny Desai, president and chief executive officer of Desai Hotel Group in Jackson, announced plans for a boutique-style hotel in boutique-ish Fondren. The design calls for a 100-room, four-story Hampton Inn with an underground parking garage at the corner of Duling Avenue and Old Canton Road, which is now a vacant grassy lot near Babalu Tacos & Tapas. Desai, whose company also owns and recently renovated the Holiday Inn Express on High Street, told the Jackson Free Press that the Fondren hotel would be unique to the Hampton Inn chain. Specifically, the hotel will look historic, 18

(MDAH wants) to make sure everything fits,” Desai told Jackson Free Press.

Costco Possibilities At the time BOOM was going to press, the fate of a Costco Wholesale in the capital city was in the hands of the Jackson City Council, which was scheduled to vote on a controversial rezoning proposal Oct. 20. Initially, Mayor Tony Yarber insisted that if Costco were to choose Jackson over Flowood for its first Mississippi store, the company wanted to be on Lakeland Drive, near Smith-Wills stadium and in the middle of two of the busiest traffic corridors in the metro. Some 50,000 vehicles

might be in play. In October, Yarber told reporters that the Lakeland site, which requires the rezoning of 50 acres of land and the likely removal of Smith-Wills Stadium, might be a no-go. But he said that Costco is now willing to work with the city for another location. “We think there’s a little bit of leverage that we have now that we didn’t have before,” Yarber said, without giving specifics. Building a Costco would reportedly result in about 235 retail jobs, plus whatever labor would be needed during the construction phase.

LOHO on a High A stone’s throw away, also in the Lefleur boomjackson.com


East (LOHO) neighborhood of northeast Jackson, sits the future site of One Eastover Center, a five-story, 120,000-square-foot office building located in the District at Eastover along Eastover Drive and Interstate 55 Frontage Road. A groundbreaking happened this summer, and construction is under way. Holder Properties, the developer, is contracting with Jacksonbased Duckworth Realty for leasing services. The District will feature new retail tenants, dining options, one- and two-bedroom living spaces, a Residence Inn by Marriott Hotel and a movie theater. The theater will have eight screens and three private “skybox-inspired” screening rooms for private events. It will showcase a variety of films, including new releases, independent and foreign films, as well as special events such as live sports, opera and concerts. Completion of the district is expected August 2015.

Highland Village Also Riding High WS Development, which owns Jackson’s Highland Village, rolled out renovation plans that will help bring a slew of new stores to the shop-

ping center. Among them are the first Magnolia State sites for Kate Spade New York and a new Lululemon Athletica. The plans also called for remodeling highfashion retailer Maison Weiss; jewelry and home gift stores Turkoyz and Turkoyz@Home and a second Red Square Clothing location, which opened in August. Developers ASD out of Atlanta and Cooke Douglass Farr Lemons Architects & Engineers of Jackson are taking part in the renovation efforts. The renovations maintain the original brick structure while brightening the facades, refining greenery and resurfacing hardscapes. Kate Spade New York will move into an 1,800-square-foot space next to A Daisy A Day, while Lululemon Athletica is set to open later this year or early 2015 in a 3,000-square-foot space near Maison Weiss’ expanded location.

Final West Jackson Plan Near A blueprint for West Jackson that has been in the works for a year and a half is close to completion. Jackson-based Duvall Decker Architects P.A. has led a series of public meetings at commu-

nity centers, places of worship and nonprofit agencies where residents identified challenges, ranging from homelessness to abandoned and poorly maintained properties and crime, and offered ideas on what they wanted to see in their neighborhoods. Much of the focus has been along the Capitol Street corridor, from Gallatin Street to Interstate 220. An initiative of the Jackson Police Department and Hinds County Sheriff’s Office that involves beefed up police presence in the area has already helped reduce the overall crime rates of some west Jackson neighborhoods. Among the items on residents’ wish lists are: more single family and Jackson State University student housing, edible gardens and fruit orchards, improved homeless services, bike loan centers, teen and senior community centers, medical clinics, laundry services, a recycling center, grocery store with more fresh food options. Residents also asked for more recreation, such as walking trails, skating rinks and possibly even a roller coaster.

alking into Zoubir Tabout Antiques & IntĂŠrieurs is like stepping into another country. The shop is filled almost floor to ceiling with ornate furniture, beautiful bottles, scarves and numerous other items. The store contains a tremendous assortment of one-of-a-kind antiques, accessories, art pieces and clothing items that owner Zoubir Tabout has personally acquired through his mostly French network. Among the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique items is a bronze Roman bracelet that dates to the first century A.D. and a second-century Roman ring. Tabout opened the store in 2010. Previously, he was a vice president of a French antique dealership in New Orleans. Prior to that, he studied foreign language at Sorbonne University in Paris, where he graduated with a Licence degree (equivalent to a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the U.S.) in foreign language in 1992. An avid historian, Tabout started out in the antique world as a guide

for an American antiques buyer who was traveling through France. He says he â&#x20AC;&#x153;discovered France through the eyes of an American.â&#x20AC;? Taboutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite style is neoclassicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ornate with a lot of movementâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;though he is now more spontaneous. He stays in regular contact with a network of pickers, or buyers throughout France and some of Europe, which includes mothers and grandmothers of friends, and travels to Paris annually to buy his acquisitions and ship them to his store in Fondren. He likes living and working in Fondren because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;stuck between the city and the country.â&#x20AC;? His most interesting project was restoring his 1928 Tudor-style house. Tabout has a knack for quality and style. The result is an artfully arranged store with a lot of character. The items in the store impart an air of travel and history, and it helps that Zoubir Tabout Antiques & IntĂŠrieursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mascot is an English bulldog named Dagobert that Tabout says has a â&#x20AC;&#x153;French temperament.â&#x20AC;? Zoubir Tabout Antiques & IntĂŠrieurs (2763 Old Canton Road) is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call 601.366.4310 or find the shop on Facebook.

Fair Trade Green, located in the Rainbow Co-op shopping plaza in Fondren, has gifts made in an ecofriendly and socially conscious way.

T

he scent of incense hangs deliciously in the air at Fair Trade Green. Brightly colored woven baskets await next to the door, and a lending library fills one corner. Manager Karen Parker offers her usual warm smile while customers drift in and out of the shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After my husband died, I re-evaluated my life,â&#x20AC;? Parker, a Jackson native, says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Ś I heard that Luke and Charlotte Lundemo were opening a fair-trade store, and (I) asked to be part of it.â&#x20AC;? The Lundemosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal was to open a store founded on ethics, kindness and community. When the space next to the Computer Co-op in Rainbow Plaza became available, they leapt at the opportunity. Now, Fair Trade Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth anniversary is in November. Fair Trade adheres to guidelines that all products be made in an ecofriendly way and without child or slave labor in a safe environment where the artisans are paid fairly. Most of the artisans are in groups formed of indigenous people or those in disadvantaged areas, and the products are certified by societies such as the Fair Trade Federation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We walk our talk,â&#x20AC;? Parker says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use bags made of 100 percent recycled paper. â&#x20AC;Ś Any wooden pieces are made from cast-off materials. A lot of our repurposed items, like the wind chimes, bottles and jewelry, are made locally.â&#x20AC;? Some of Parkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite items

include hats made with material from the bark of Mutaba trees, made by the Friends of Uganda. Bracelets made from the vegetable â&#x20AC;&#x153;ivoryâ&#x20AC;? of Ecuadorian tagua nuts are arranged artfully in a basket. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These nuts slowed down the cutting of the rain forest as people realized how valuable they were,â&#x20AC;? Parker says. Fair Trade Green is filled with local and international items that appeal to artists. Parker says thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes the store so special. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fondren is all about a diverse community â&#x20AC;Ś and that is what Fair Trade does,â&#x20AC;? Parker says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It pulls all those things together.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;A little bit of my heart goes into everything we have in this store because I read the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories. â&#x20AC;Ś Fair trade has regenerated the traditions of these crafts,â&#x20AC;? Parker says as she hangs a tapestry made on a Peruvian foot loom. Fair Trade Green is the perfect place to pick up a gift for a friend or a unique gift for a child. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a beauty in knowing there is an ethical turn to what you purchaseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;knowing that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supporting the world,â&#x20AC;? Parker says. Fair Trade Green is located inside Rainbow Plaza (2807 Old Canton Road, 601.366.1602). The shop is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit rainbow coop.org or find the shop on Facebook.

hile the holidays arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about gifts, the acts of giving and receiving them tends to consume much of our time. We spend hours at stores and boutiques buying the perfect gifts and gift wrap and obsessing over the money weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re spending. This year, instead of buying an expensive gift, why not make someone a gift? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more personal when you made the item with your own two hands. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a DIY gift I saw on Sculpey.com that would be perfect to give during this holiday season.

#HRISTMAS´ #ANDLELIT (IT // by Micah Smith COURTESY MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE

For this years Festival of Lights, the Mississippi College Singers will perform songs such as the “Wexford Carol and “A Spotless Rose” by Herbert Howard.

E

ric Milner-White, dean of King’s College in Cambridge, England, from 1918 to 1941, thought the Church of England needed a more creative service. The college held the first Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was on Christmas Eve 1918. In 1928, British Broadcasting Corporation Radio began broadcasting the program and has done so every year since. Each service includes nine lessons from the Bible, from the sin of Adam and Eve to the birth of Jesus to the Bible’s prophesies. After

each lesson, the choir sings two carols, including “Remember, O Thou Man” by Thomas Ravenscroft and “O Come, All Ye Faithful,” a verse of “Adeste Fideles” by John Wade, translated into English by Frederick Oakley. In 1986, Dr. Richard Joiner, an adjunct professor of music, decided to import the British tradition to Mississippi College, and so began the saga of the Festival of Lights, an event that features the MC Singers and similar to its predecessor, includes scripture and carols. Dr. Milburn Price, a visiting professor

very year, Carols by Candlelight draws around 15,000 Jacksonians with its joyous message of hope and new beginnings. Now in its 45th season, the Christmas spectacular is prepped to be the largest, yet. Lavon Gray, First Baptist Jackson’s minister of music, has been with the church for 10 years, and is largely responsible for arranging Carols by Candlelight, a process that started all the way back in January. “Every year, we pretty much start with 28

The 45th Annual Carols by Candlelight at First Baptist Jackson special includes around 300 singers and 45 musicians. a blank slate … and begin praying to identify a theme,” Gray says. The theme for 2014 is “Are You Changed?” Beside the customary processional, in which the church choir enters the audito-

in the college’s music department, says the event was started to signal the Christmas season in Clinton. “It opens the art season in Clinton and is usually the first concert of any kind for the Christmas season,” Milburn, an Ellisville native, says. While the British tradition dictates that the service be held on Christmas Eve, MC usually begins its event the Thursday after Thanksgiving. Like the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, the event features nine scripture lessons with hymns and carols laced throughout. This year, the MC Singers will perform carols such as the “Wexford Carol” and Herbert Howard’s “A Spotless Rose.” “Music has long been associated with the Christmas season,” Milburn says. “To provide an event that takes the important biblical text for the Christmas season and reads them and then amplifies those texts with appropriate choral music is certainly a fitting ushering in to the Christmas season. I think Mississippi College has considered this to be a part of their contribution to both the religious life and the musical life of the broader area surrounding the college, both Clinton and Jackson.” This year’s event will be held Dec. 4-6 at MC’s Provine Chapel (200 W. College St.). Each performance begins at 7:30 p.m. General admission is $15 and children and student tickets are $5. For more information, visit mc.edu.

rium with lit candles, Carols by Candlelight has plenty of change this year. Special guests include award-winning dancer Kathy Thibodeaux, the co-founder of Ballet Magnificat!, narrator Marquis Laughlin, the radio personality behind “Acts of the Word” and “The Moral Dilemma,” and speed-painter Bryan Keith Daniel, who creates abstract artwork live. Gray organizes around 300 singers and 45 musicians every year to bring Carols by Candlelight’s festive sound to filled auditoriums. “We strive for excellence at the highest level, and it doesn’t cost anything,” Gray says. “That doesn’t hurt, either!” This year’s Carols by Candlelight is Dec. 12-14 at 7 p.m. with matinee performances Saturday and Sunday at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are free, available at firstbaptistjackson.org and carolsbycandlight.org. boomjackson.com

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know about Anjou Chef Daryl Mahoney.

1.

Anjou Restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive chef, Daryl Maloney, is originally from Oklahoma City, Okla.

2.

Chef Maloney trained in French cuisine under Chef Kurt Fleischfresser at Oklahomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Coach House Restaurant, where â&#x20AC;&#x153;you move through the brigade system where the guy ahead of you shows you the station that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved into, and you pull each other along,â&#x20AC;? he explains.

3.

Maloney says the most difficult thing to learn were the knife skills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fine dicing, the brunoises. Depending on the person you are learning under, they can be demanding,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a guest chef from New York. He told me to do some brunoises for him, so I was chopping red bell peppers just as finely as I could get them. And he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful brunoise!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

4.

The menu at Anjou is a blend of French and southern cuisine, balancing French classics such as croque-monsieur and profiteroles with daily specials such as meatloaf. And, Maloney says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;most of the entrees are a blend, with French techniques and French styles but using ingredients with a southern flair.â&#x20AC;?

5.

Yep, Anjou serves escargot. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not keen on popping a snail into your mouth, you might be pleasantly surprised. Work. Live. Play. Prosper.

Chef Maloney describes them: â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are lightly sautĂŠed, then we put them in the dish with garlic butter ... and then we put it in the broiler until itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all brown and bubbling. Then you get a little side of bread to sop up the butter.â&#x20AC;?

6.

Maloneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite season to cook is autumn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like a lot of root vegetables and things like that,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not really a light food eater, and in the fall and winter you can make food more substantial.â&#x20AC;?

7.

He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been to Franceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;yet. Maloney hopes to take his wife, Gia, and their two daughters to spend a summer there at some point.

8.

In fact, the only French Maloney knows are the culinary words he learned in his program. But his daughter Erin is taking a French class this school year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping to learn a little more from her, maybe pick up her textbooks,â&#x20AC;? Maloney says with a chuckle.

9.

The word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anjouâ&#x20AC;? (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;an-jĂź ; -zhĂź) refers to a former province of western France on the Loire River. It was an English possession from 1154 to 1204.

ating clean and being mindful of how different foods affect your body is becoming more prevalent. Contrary to popular belief, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to give up on the good habits youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked so hard to form just because of holiday traditions. Serve your family something you can feel good about and that tastes good, too. Clean eating stresses healthy, whole and unprocessed foods. Health experts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call it a diet; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a way of life. Cookinglight.com outlines some of the principles of the concept: whole, natural foods with minimal or no processing; unrefined foods, such as amaranth and quinoa, over refined, such as enriched flour; and minimal fat, sugar and salt content. This holiday season, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel down because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re surrounded by stuffing, turkey and pies. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re vegan, vegetarian, gluten or grain free or you just want to eat healthy, you can still Try these delicious recipes instead.

Illustrator Kyle Hilton didn’t think of drawing as a career until his last year of college. had amassed a small portfolio by the end of college, filled with work for clients, such as logos and more conceptualized pieces. Soon after graduating, he began receiving editorial illustration jobs with from magazines, newspapers and websites, and in only a few years, he’s created for widely read publications such as Austin Weekly, Variety and The New York Times, for which he drew weekly illustrations for two years.. Hilton’s animated style of drawing stems from his lifelong love of comic books. “I always wanted to draw comic books,” Hilton, who currently lives in Jackson, says. “During college, I always thought that would be really cool to get to a point where I could do comic books professionally but never quite had the patience for such a long-term illustration. It takes a lot of commitment for only a few seconds of reading.” His love of comic books and collecting action figures eventually brought him to the world of paper dolls. “I’m not really a sculptor,” he says. “As I was trying to play around with getting better at illustration, I started drawing characters that I liked and ended up kind of in this paper-doll format, because I just like to draw the 48

of the book, though, was trying to find people that Hilton and the publisher had the rights to use. A few days after the news broke of riots in Ferguson, Mo., Hilton created a paper-doll illustration that mocked the over-militarization of the city’s police (pictured on page 49). The piece features a white police officer and alternate faces of Mike Brown, Dorian Johnson, Officer Darren Wilson and a Guy Fawkes mask. An orange spiked comic bubble reads “Time to suit up!” with handcuffs below. Hilton created a police helmet, a SWAT team vest, machine guns and grenades to go along with the theme. The text beside a police tank reads, “Now, we’re talking,” and next to another pair of handcuffs: “And remember: No fear! No reporters!” The artist says he isn’t very political, but he saw the gunning down of Brown and the militaristic police reaction as a violation of basic human rights. “No matter who you are, you want to know that justice is on your side,” he says. These days, Hilton is working on a new paper-doll project. Though he says he hopes to do another art-history book, his next venture is a book on famous writers, which he says will include a diverse range of people, including men and women and more racial diversity.

Heart of Glass // by Anna Wolfe

A

small bell hangs from the ceiling near the back of Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mosaic Shop next to a container of Band-Aids. If one of the mosaic crafters cuts a finger while handling colored glass pieces, the injured artist is required to ring the bell as if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a victory. The shop workers get excited when it happens. It means youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re invested in your pieceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not afraid of getting a little roughed up in pursuit of your craft. Mosaic Shop owner and artist Wanda Hendrix wears bandages around her fingers as she shows attendees in her workshop how to cut and arrange glass onto their own work of art. Hendrix, a woman with a fabulous white hairdo, ran shop in Waxahachie, Texas, until she relocated to Mississippi in 2006. Now, with her shop at 1625 E. County Line Road in the Pear Orchard Village shopping center, she helps shop patrons â&#x20AC;&#x153;create (their) own â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; piece, and feel as good about (their) work and (themselves) as I do,â&#x20AC;? she says. The shop is filled with mosaic artwork. The pieces range from flat, colorful shapes hanging on

the walls to mosaic boxes and bejeweled high-heel shoes. Rows of bins filled with glass pieces sorted by color line the right side of the workshop. Above the bins is a whole wall of wooden shapes customers can choose to decorate. Each is priced from about $14 to $28. During the holiday season, Mosaic Shop offers 15 different ornaments at three for $15. Hendrix said these are the perfect gift for grandparents. The store also has party options with coaches and special demonstrations. For many people, nothing is better than a handmade holiday gift. But the end result from a trip to Mosaic Shop isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on par with your average macaroni picture frame or refrigerator magnet. With the help of the shopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s artists, anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no matter his or her skill levelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;can create a masterpiece worthy of a special spot in a friend or family memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living room. Mosaic Shop (1625 E. County Line Road, Suite 210, 601.397.6579) is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

While people can donate and do volunteer work such as weeding flowerbeds, they can also help in the gift shop. The Mustard Seed needs people to help with such things as tying ribbon on ornaments and cleaning and organizing the gift shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our community thrives on volunteers and financial contributions, so we welcome anything, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big or small, whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a minute or an entire weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of time,â&#x20AC;? Harrington says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can take anything and anybody, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re grateful for everything.â&#x20AC;? The Mustard Seed gift shop (1085 LuckneyRoad,Brandon,601.992.3556) is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the second Saturday of each month from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Nov. 15 and 22, Mustard Seed will host shopping days. On Dec. 6, the organization will host its open house, which will include a performance by Mustard Seedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bells of Faith, a silent auction and a bake sale.

upelo attracts thousands of visitors to the Magnolia State each year. Whether they are coming to see the scenic Natchez Trace Parkway, the Tupelo National Battlefield or, most notably, the birthplace of Elvis Presley, tourists always get a helping of southern charm. For Mississippians who still havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made it up north to pay homage to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;King,â&#x20AC;? the holiday season is the perfect time for a weekend getaway thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just up the road. A day in Tupelo should start at Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fried Chicken (821 S. Gloster St., 68

662.842.7260). From the outside, Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is as inconspicuous as it getsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you might even mistake it for a fast-food joint, but natives will tell you that it has long been their go-to breakfast joint. For breakfast, get the chicken biscuit with gravy and a freshly baked blueberry cake donut. You will thank me. And while Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biscuits might conjure images of a gray-haired woman kneading dough, but Connieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is actually named for the two ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; father, Constance. Give the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kingâ&#x20AC;? his rightful place and visit the Elvis attractions after breakfast. Visitors get a first-hand glimpse of Presleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s humble beginnings at his birthplace (306 Elvis Presley Drive, 662.841.1245), and the gift shop is full of quirky mugs and refrigerator magnets that are perfect stocking stuffers for your Elvis-loving friends. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done there, head over to Tupelo Hardware (114 W. Main St., 662.842.4637), find the X on the floor, and you can stand where Presleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother is rumored to have stood when she bought her son his first guitar. The store sells antique trinkets and Elvis memorabilia but is also a fully functional hardware store. While youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re downtown, have lunch at CafĂŠ 212 (212 W. Main St., 662.844.6323).

Its deli-style offerings make it a local favorite. I recommend the pimento cheese sandwichâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when in Rome, right? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re visiting near the end of November, say the 23rd, check out the holiday open house downtown. This is your chance to redeem yourself if you procrastinated on Christmas shopping. All the downtown retailers are open for a Sunday (gasp!) sale from noon to 5 p.m. If you plan your getaway for December, try to catch the Dec. 8. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Season of Hope,â&#x20AC;? which is fitting with the aftermath of Aprilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tornado still very visible. Parade organizers made WTVA news anchors Matt Laubhan and his wife, Emily Leonard, the grand marshals because of the dedication that they showed to protecting their community on the day of the disaster. A video went viral in the weeks following that showed Laubhan answering his cell phone during a broadcast to ensure his mother that he was OK, and then clearing the newsroom when the tornado got close. Finish off the night with some local eats, beer and culture at the Blue Canoe Bar (2006 N. Gloster St., Tupelo, 662.269.2642). Try the crack friesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no diets on vacation, right? And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling homesick by now, the Blue Canoe keeps Lucky Town on tap.
