Can you drunk-drive into a cop car and keep your license? Yes — if you’re Frank Ross III.

P

L

O

G

System Crash fter the December 5, 2010, Chiefs game, Frank J. Ross III drove his BMW while drunk and blew through a stop sign at 35th Street and Euclid. He T-boned a car. The car was a Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department cruiser. Both officers were injured in the collision, which mangled the cop car into a shell of twisted metal. The driver, officer Warner J. Stumpenhaus, walked away with minor injuries. The passenger, officer Serge Grinik, wasn’t so lucky. Firefighters had to extricate him from the cruiser, and he was hospitalized with a fractured pelvis, a fractured shoulder, and multiple abrasions and lacerations. Ross wasn’t hurt — unless the slap on the wrist, which he got in court last month, counts. The Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office had charged Ross with two felony counts of second-degree assault for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. His blood-alcohol content was 0.185 — more than twice the legal limit. In a city that loves DUI checkpoints, a drunk driver who comes right to the cops must be a slam-dunk, right? Nope. Ross, a commercial real-estate agent for the LANE4 Property Group, is the son of Frank Ross Jr., a prominent lawyer with the firm Polsinelli Shughart. He’s a grad of Rockhurst High School and Boston College, and his friends call him “Trip” — and some of those pals are high-profile types. In Ross’ car at the time of the crash was an assistant U.S. district attorney. On January 10, Ross entered a guilty plea. He received a suspended imposition of sentence and was placed on three years’ probation. He can still drive, though now he must blow into an ignition interlock device to start his vehicle. (The device has a camera to make sure Ross does his own puffing.) He also was ordered to pay a $46 fine, complete a victim-impact program as well as a program for “substance abuse traffic offenders,” and serve 40 hours of community service. Forty hours of community service? That’s way fewer than the 100 hours handed down to two Ray County farmers who cut down cottonwood trees containing two bald-eagle nests. It’s also fewer than the 50 hours that University of Missouri football coach Gary Pinkel agreed to complete for his DUI arrest last year. And it’s fewer than the 70 hours that Karen Christine Downs was ordered to serve for providing alcohol to several underage girls

at a sleepover. (Downs also was sentenced to 30 days of shock time in jail.) A local police officer not involved in the case says Ross’ sentence “sounds real light.” He adds: “I’d like to see the drunken-driving laws stiffened up. My conscience tells me that we ought to treat it much more seriously.” Michael Mansur, spokesman for the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, says Ross’ sentence is not uncommon. He notes that several

vehicular-assault cases ended in suspended imposition of sentences. “It’s not uncommon when you’re dealing with someone who had no priors,” Mansur says. “It’s a fairly typical kind of sentence.” A suspended imposition of sentence means that if Ross successfully completes his probation, his case will be dismissed and the

felony-assault charge wiped from his record. Mansur says Ross received no special treatment. “I know he had people in his car that were well-known,” he says. “But that really wasn’t a factor in any way that I can determine. I don’t think they got anything special.” Mansur says he spoke with the prosecutor in the case and was told that Stumpenhaus and Grinik and their families were fine with the outcome. However, both officers filed civil lawsuits against Ross following the wreck. Grinik sued Ross and the city. His lawsuit says he was “severely and permanently injured” and claims that he “suffered and will continue to suffer great physical pain and suffering, mental anguish and emotional distress.” Grinik, according to court documents, underwent surgery and physical therapy as a result of the collision. Grinik charges that the city was “careless, negligent, reckless and partly at fault” for not upgrading its traffic signals. A trial was scheduled for December 19, 2011. However, Grinik filed a notice of dismissal on December 1, signaling an out-ofcourt settlement. Stumpenhaus is still suing Ross. A jury trial is scheduled for September 4. Attorneys for Stumpenhaus and Grinik did not return calls from The Pitch. Neither did Ross. — JUSTIN KENDALL A clean slate at pitch.com/plog

n a former soybean field in southern Kansas City, Missouri, the nation’s first privately owned facility for building nuclear-bomb components is under construction. Within the year, Honeywell Federal Manufacturing & Technologies plans to move its operation from the aging Bannister Federal Complex to the new Kansas City Responsive Infrastructure, Manufacturing & Sourcing campus at 14500 Botts Road. Ground was broken for the 1.5-millionsquare-foot facility in September 2010. But the start of that day’s ceremony was delayed for 10 minutes when members of the Kansas City Peace Planters blocked three luxury buses that were carrying dignitaries, including then Kansas City Mayor Mark Funkhouser and U.S. Reps. Emanuel Cleaver, Ike Skelton and Sam Graves. Eight anti-nuclear-weapons activists were arrested. It was the first skirmish between plant supporters and peace activists. And it won’t be the last. continued on page 10

“THAT IS THE MOST CURIOUS ARRANGEMENT.”

The Kansas City Project continued from page 9

The Peace Planters argued that the city shouldn’t support or help finance a factory that would produce even non-nuclear components for nuclear weapons. Elected officials claimed that the plant would keep 2,100 high-paying jobs in Kansas City — along with $1.7 million in annual earnings-tax revenue — and create 1,500 construction jobs. “It will be built somewhere, and it ought to be built in Kansas City,” Funkhouser said at the time. The Bannister Federal Complex structure was simple: The feds owned the plant, and Honeywell operated it. The new plant’s ownership structure, however, is nothing short of dizzying: • Kansas City’s Planned Industrial Expansion Authority (PIEA) owns the plant and the land it is on. • Real-estate company CenterPoint Zimmer will lease the plant from the PIEA. • The General Services Administration will sublease the plant from CenterPoint Zimmer. • The National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) will sub-sublease the plant from the GSA. • Honeywell, a federal contractor with a contract to build weapons, will operate the plant as it does the Bannister Federal Complex, producing electronic systems and upgrading weapons. After the 25-year lease between PIEA and CenterPoint Zimmer expires, the city agency will transfer the title to CenterPoint, eliminating any government ownership. If the NNSA then extends its lease with CenterPoint, the plant would become the first privately owned site for building components for nuclear weapons. Given Bannister’s longevity — the Navy built the complex in 1943 to make fighter planes, and in 1949 it was repurposed to create systems and parts for the U.S. nuclear arsenal — extensions appear likely. The federal government also has an option to buy the plant, but GSA spokeswoman Angela M. Brees says there are no plans to purchase the facility. A Honeywell press release says the con-

tractor will begin its 19-month moving process January 23, 2013.The GSA will follow Honeywell out of Bannister in late 2014. That’s when the GSA plans to move more than 1,000 employees from the aging campus to a leased office space in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The move will finally end the federal government’s involvement with the historic site, whose role in World War II and the Cold War has been overshadowed in recent years by illnesses and deaths of hundreds of employees thought to have been poisoned by toxins while working there. The NNSA hopes to sell Bannister to a private developer. The plant’s private ownership is drawing both ire and bewilderment from experts. Richard Rhodes, who won the Pulitzer Prize for his classic The Making of the Atomic Bomb, says the ownership arrangement is an aberration in the history of the military-industrial complex. While many American companies make fortunes by selling arms, Rhodes says private ownership of a nuclear plant is a novel idea. “That is the most curious arrangement,” Rhodes tells The Pitch.

K

ansas City becoming home to the nation’s first privately owned nuke plant required a confusing chain of leasing agreements, city bonds, and bids with the federal government. CenterPoint Zimmer — a collaboration of two real-estate agencies, Kansas City’s Zimmer Real Estate Services LLC and Illinois’ CenterPoint Properties — won a 2009 bidding process with the GSA to build the new plant. Meanwhile, the PIEA, a quasi-municipal agency set up to improve blighted parts of the city, took title of the plant’s future site, a soybean field on Botts Road. The city of Kansas City, Missouri, issued $687 million in bonds to raise money for the project. The GSA’s rent will flow through CenterPoint Zimmer and ultimately be used to pay off the PIEA bonds. Then the GSA, a federal agency that, among other responsibilities, finds office space for government entities, agreed to a 20-


year sublease with CenterPoint Zimmer. (Rent is set at $61,558,772 a year, totaling $1.23 billion over the life of the deal.) The GSA then sub-subleased the plant to the NNSA, a semiautonomous agency under the Department of Energy. A September 2010 press release from the NNSA only hinted at the unique relationship between the federal government and CenterPoint Zimmer: “The new campus of buildings … is a private facility being leased to the federal government.” Rhodes hadn’t heard of the plant’s ownership structure until asked about it by The Pitch. Rhodes says tethering the local economy to defense spending may be foolish, given the reduction in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. (In 2010, the United States had 5,113 warheads, down from 22,217 in 1989 and 31,225 in 1967.) Wichita learned the hard way, earlier this year, when Boeing’s defense unit pulled a tanker-assembly operation from that city. Boeing cited a reduction in defense spending for eliminating 2,100 Kansas jobs. Rhodes suggests a better investment would be in civilian manufacturing. “There have been good economic plans for the conversion of military industries to peaceful industries for a long time,” Rhodes says. With jobs at stake, Rhodes understands why it’s politically untenable to let Honeywell and the NNSA leave town. Still, he says, “It’s sad that Kansas City, for the sake of 2,100 jobs, bought into the whole deal.”

K

ansas City officials and the federal government should have known that building a modern facility to make parts for nuclear weapons would start a war. Councilman Ed Ford, who serves the 2nd District at large, has been fighting the plant for almost four years, but the project has few opponents in local government. He says he could support a plant for just about anything but bomb parts. “If they were widgets, I’d be fine with it,” says Ford, who describes himself as “somewhat of a pacifist.” Ford, a Catholic who belongs to Holy Family Catholic Church, says his faith has partly fueled his opposition to the Kansas City Plant. (That faith also led him to be a conscientious objector during the waning days of the Vietnam War draft.) “I did not want to be in the chain,” he says. “If we ever used one of these bombs, I could not have lived with myself.” Last year, the Kansas City Peace Planters gathered almost 5,000 signatures to certify a ballot measure that would ban the city from hosting any plant that produces components for nuclear weapons. In August, the City Council refused to put the measure on the ballot, citing “conflicts with the constitutional power of the federal government to provide for the national defense.” After the council blocked the initiative, the Peace Planters filed a lawsuit to overturn the decision. However, the group decided to drop the lawsuit and focus instead on getting two measures on the ballot for the August 7, 2012, primary. The first measure would bar the city from owning or being financially tied to nuclear-weapon facilities. The initiative would require the city to “divest itself as soon as reasonably feasible of current municipal bonds which finance or subsidize” nuclear-weapon facilities. The second and less controversial measure would require

“EVEN IF THEY BOTH GET ON [THE BALLOT] AND PASS, I DON’T THINK IT WILL IMPACT THIS. IT’S A DONE DEAL.”

the city to develop a contingency plan for the plant site if the plant ceases producing parts for weapons. The Peace Planters want the plant to work on environmentally friendly manufacturing. The city clerk certified both measures January 3, but there’s no guarantee that the initiatives will make it onto the ballot. Rachel MacNair, the Peace Planters’ petition coordinator, says the peace group is devoted to preventing a single bomb part from being built at the plant. “We’re hoping that they never contaminate the new location by starting to make new nuclear-weapons parts,” she says. If the Peace Planters succeed, Kansas City will be out of the bomb-making business for the first time since the Cold War. MacNair anticipates a nasty political battle if the measures are placed on the ballot. “They [plant proponents] will trounce us on advertising because they can take out of their pocket change 10 times what we will be able to do,” she says. “But we will trounce them on person-to-person contact.” MacNair and the Peace Planters are confident of public support after successful ballot drives in back-to-back years. John Sharp, councilman for the 6th District, where the plant is being constructed, has publicly expressed doubt that the first measure will make it to a vote. The Pitch requested comments from every City Council member, including Sharp, about why the plant is good for Kansas City. Only 1st District Councilman Dick Davis responded. “This decision is one I support,” Davis wrote in an e-mail. “I also feel that if the decision results in good jobs for Kansas Citians, I fully support keeping them in Kansas City.” In a statement to The Pitch, Congressman Cleaver reiterated his support for the plant. “We all hope the weapons built at the campus will never be used. I have not abandoned my peacenik persona, but I do not think the United States should be vulnerable militarily,” he wrote. “Unjust war is incompatible with the teachings and examples in my faith tradition, and I have opposed the wars and conflicts in recent history. However, until the day the United States military believes there is no longer a need for these parts, the professionals here in Kansas City are proud to help keep our nation safe.” The City Council has until March 1 to approve or reject the measures for the August 7 ballot. MacNair and the Peace Planters have gone on the offensive, launching a new website (foolish-investment.com) and putting up billboards. At Truman Road South and Main and at Broadway and 39th Street, images of mushroom clouds hang over motorists. MacNair says if the City Council bans these measures, the Peace Planters will be ready to engage the city in a lengthy legal battle. “We will litigate it,” she says. “We have raised the money to be able to fund the litigation.” Despite the Peace Planters’ optimism, Ford is resigned that nuclearweapon production will remain part of the Kansas City economy. Ford isn’t raising a white flag just yet, but with the leases signed and construction on schedule, the machinery can’t be stopped, he says. “Even if they both get on [the ballot] and pass, I don’t think it will impact this,” he says. “It’s a done deal.” E-mail ben.palosaari@pitch.com or call 816-218-6783

Is your John Deere 6330 Premium on the fritz? Do you lie in bed at night wondering about the latest trends in environmentally friendly fertilizer? Or maybe you’re a single urban girl looking for love with a sturdy, cornfed country boy? Regardless of your bent, the 51st Annual Western Farm Show this weekend — 9 a.m.–5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 9 a.m.– 4 p.m. Sunday — features livestock demonstrations and seminars, and aisles teeming with the latest tractor makes and models, feed and seed, plus a Health & Safety Roundup, all at the American Royal Complex (1701 American Royal Court, 816-221-9800).

REPPIN’ HARD

Ready for a little word-association game? What comes to mind when we mention Condoleezza Rice? How about Nancy Pelosi? Katie Couric? Did you think of only respectful and positive words? If not, it’s time to sit down and watch Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s Miss Representation, a 90-minute documentary about the mainstream media’s subliminal marginalization and overt character assassination of powerful women in America. Newsom’s movie, which premiered at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, claims that the United States ranks 90th worldwide for women in political leadership. She says women hold just 3 percent of positions of influence in our mainstream media. See the film at the UMKC Student Union (5100 Cherry, 816-235-1406) at 5:30 p.m. Admission is free; look up missrepresentation.org to read more about the film and to watch the trailer. — NADIA PFLAUM [LITERARY EVENT]

Khaled Hosseini’s book The Kite Runner told the touching story of two Afghan immigrants in America. Rainy Day Books owner Vivien Jennings says Ayad Akhtar’s new novel, American Dervish, is as important as The Kite Runner in that “it gives us a great deal of insight into a culture very different from our own, yet one which we really need to understand.” The story features Hayat Shah, a character who has much in common with typical American teenagers. He’s in love for the first time and likes baseball and video games. But he’s different in one polarizing way: He’s Muslim. The story is a personal one for Akhtar, a Pakistani-American actor and playwright. He explains, when Rainy Day Books brings him to Unity Temple on the

art Hot Tub Club NOTHING WATERED DOWN AT THE SUBTERRANEAN GALLERY’S SPEAKER SERIES.

T

he dress code for the inaugural speaker of Subterranean Gallery’s new lecture series: stringy denim cutoffs. Greeted with alcohol-fueled guffaws and catcalls (“Jorts!”) from audience members crammed into narrow rows of plastic folding chairs, Hesse McGraw dropped his white spa robe on the concrete floor and swung a leg into the hot tub. “I forgot my bathing suit,” McGraw explained as a Speedo-clad Josh Shelton followed him into the bubbling water. McGraw, the chief curator at Omaha, Nebraska’s Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, was here to sit in a hot tub and discuss art and design with Shelton, a principal architect at the KC BY firm El Dorado and an instrucT H E R E S A tor at the University of Kansas. The two sipped cans of B E M B N I ST E R Bud Light as McGraw brought up the first PowerPoint image, projected on a sheet tacked to the wall behind the tub. It was a black-and-white photo of the 1942 Marcel Duchamp installation Sixteen Miles of String. The artist wound several thousand feet of twine through a gallery interior until it looked like the aftermath of a Silly String battle. “I feel like, most of the time, we’re trying to catch up with Duchamp,” McGraw said. Duchamp might have approved of the Hot Tub Dialogues, a series that floats pretensioncourting art talk in a purposely down-market setting. It’s been almost a century since the artist challenged exhibitors’ hypocrisy and exclusivity by sending “Fountain,” an upsidedown urinal, as a sculpture to the 1917 Society of Independent Artists show. The society had promised to exhibit every submitted work, but “Fountain” was never put on display. After McGraw’s brief art-history lesson, he spoke about his own career. Recalling his relocation of the Paragraph Gallery from Lawrence to downtown Kansas City in 2003 (prePower & Light District), he said, “We could really do anything back then.” Behind him, a video showed one of Eric von Robertson’s polygonal sculptures rolling through a park and down empty streets. Kansas City’s downtown has changed dramatically since McGraw left the Paragraph for New York in 2005, but so has the city’s visual-art scene. The Urban Culture Project, which helped support McGraw’s gallery, has expanded dramatically in size and scope; it now encompasses three exhibition spaces and

a residency program providing free studios to 32 visual and performing artists. McGraw reminded the evening’s guests about the scrappy early days of what’s now a powerful local institution. The Subterranean Gallery embodies the same do-it-yourself energy that sparked the Urban Culture Project. Artist Ayla Rexroth runs it out of her basement apartment, which makes its openings feel as much like art-school house parties as gallery events. Rexroth and Clayton Skidmore, co-curator of the Hot Tub Dialogues, treat art-curious visitors as houseguests — which is exactly what they are. There’s a private bedroom at the rear of the apartment; the gallery occupies what would otherwise serve as a living room. The idea for the dialogues came from a joke, but after the pair paid $50 to haul a broken hot tub (donated by an exhibiting artist’s parents) to their basement gallery, they committed themselves. Rexroth and Skidmore solicited friends and strangers for funds via Kickstarter to repair the tub and stock the bar for the event. Those who gave $25 were promised tickets to two of the three lectures. That left the series with a negligible amount of tickets to sell and an audience already familiar with the exhibition space. Skidmore and Rexroth see the lectures as a way to bring more experienced members of the community to their gallery — and to learn from them. “As a young artist, there’s really not a set script to follow,” Skidmore said in an interview before the first event. “I feel like it’s

important that we find out what kind of experiences they had.” But importance need not feel, you know, important. “We want this to be a very informal moment,” he added. “The hot tub is forcing that to happen.” “It also helps that our apartment is incredibly small,” Rexroth said. With room for only 30 guests, the Subterranean encourages intimacy. But it also means that a lot of people who want to be there won’t be able to attend. “It’s unfortunate that we can’t let everyone come who wants to. It’s really stressful for us to say no,” Rexroth said. But those in attendance the opening night of the series seemed thrilled to witness the novelty of a lecture delivered from a burbling hot tub. Midway through McGraw and Shelton’s presentation, two of the guests — male artists in their 20s — stripped down and got in the tub. Water displaced by the extra bodies splashed over the edge and onto the concrete floor. Skidmore ran to retrieve a cooking pot from the kitchen, hoping to scoop out some of the water. The moment was a fine metaphor for what the dialogues address: A scene overflowing with hardworking artists who are willing to experiment and make room for more of their own — and who could always stand a bigger audience.

ANGELA C. BOND

never imagined that the best part of a restaurant experience could be paying the bill. But Gram & Dun, the new “gastropub” on the Country Club Plaza, makes forking over a credit card kind of fun, even for a hefty tab. As at this restaurant’s sister venue, Urban Table in Prairie Village, the bill arrives in a vintage book instead of on a tip tray. Don’t expect a great work of literature, mind you, but there’s wit in some of BY these flea-market hardbacks. One of my checks came preCHARLES sented inside Touched With F E R R U Z Z A Fire, by the never-to-beforgotten John Tebbel. I also got a look at a slim 1950 guidebook called This L-shaped restaurant (once home to Living With Teeners, by Grace Sloan Overton. But it wasn’t Overton’s timeless advice Parkway 600 Grill and Baja 600) has been about raising adolescents with help from gutted and redone for maximum luxe dazzle, the Bible that caught my eye. Inside her teen with a chandelier dripping crystals in the treatise were handwritten comments from building’s dome room and a richly stocked previous Gram & Dun diners, some of which bar. The walls are a cool gray, and the floor were more riveting than the book itself. There is made of dark, wide planks. Calling it a pub were glowing observations about the food and is sort of like calling actress Helen Mirren service (and a few scathing insults). In a note a broad. And broad is a good word to describe to another day’s server, someone had penned: “Will you go out with me? Please circle one: Bradley Gilmore’s restless menu. It’s all over the map: Asian pig wings in a sake-soy Yes. No. Maybe. P.S. I’m smokin’. ” The word maybe had been circled. Did the glaze here, mussels and frites there. Want waiter or waitress really go above and beyond Brunswick stew? Check. Korean beef short the call of duty and respond this way? (Coy but ribs? Sure. Fried chicken and waffles? Really? Yes, really. In fact, Gram & Dun’s version of guaranteed to earn a decent tip, if not an actual date.) I could have ordered another espresso chicken and waffles is this city’s most ladylike right then and stuck around for another hour incarnation of a lusty soul classic.

Besides, scandalously fatty and stone-cold the afteryou can call this joint anything you want — a noon I ordered it. Talk about something that should have been touched with fire. pub it ain’t.

“That’s funny,” our server said. “It came out of the kitchen hot.” At any temperature, that poor pork shoulder was a piggy $19. It’s easy to rack up a supersized tab here — the menu and prices are identical for lunch and dinner — even when sticking to sandwiches, which run $11–$14. But the sandwiches I’ve tasted have been outstanding, including a grilled cheese made with luscious short-rib meat. It was fantastic, though I longed for a cheese more intense than provolone. I found the sharper taste I wanted in Gram & Dun’s version of barbecue: an oversized cornmeal bun heaped with tender smoked beef, slices of hot link sausage and pulled pork in a distinctively fiery sauce. It’s a really firstrate sandwich, but even better is a sassy spin on a roadhouse favorite, a sloppy-Joe-style sandwich made with ground wild boar and a dollop of Carolina slaw. You may have figured out by now that there aren’t a lot of choices for vegetarians here. The mustard greens are cooked in duck fat (and loaded with a taste-prohibitive amount of garlic). The quack lard also makes an appearance in the house-made potato chips, which are deliciously crispy and greasy but probably not worth the added cholesterol count. Even the popular appetizer French onion dumplings — doughy purses of molten Gruyere in a caramelized sweet-onion broth — are made with beef stock (as any French onion soup should be). The only meatless entrée is a plate of ricotta-filled wild-mushroom ravioli smothered in a thick blanket of cream-based “vegetarian Bolognese.”

The smoked chicken is perfectly Dun, but it’s worth gaining a Gram eating dessert.

Strict vegetarians won’t want the marshmallows in Gram & Dun’s namesake dessert bar, but it’s very fine: three slender frozen rectangles with layers of chocolate mousse, marshmallow and peanut nougat, sided with peanut-butter ice cream. It’s served granite-hard, but give it a few minutes to soften up and sharing becomes easy. I wanted to be entranced by a scoop of buttered-popcorn ice cream draped with salted caramel sauce and peanut brittle. It’s a clever novelty, but the best buttered popcorn is still the kind served hot, in cardboard boxes, the way the kids in Living With Teeners would have ordered. The well-trained servers wear a kind of Jetsons uniform — a black vest over a gray shirt — that suggests a 1980s-sci-fi-movie vision of “the future.” It’s the kind of outfit that makes you hear Philip Glass in your head — though the loop of half-decade-old Top 40 that plays in the restaurant is more apt to make you feel stuck in a Grey’s Anatomy rerun. So far, the place appears to be very popular, so co-owner Alan Gaylin is doing something right. The far-flung menu needs editing — it’s probably too ambitious for the Country Club Plaza, land of California Pizza Kitchen and Noodles & Company. But let’s not close the book on it yet. If this is Urban Table in its teener-acting-out phase, Gram & Dun might yet become a fine adult restaurant. Have a suggestion for a restaurant The Pitch should review?

Field Notes

I

n the genteel quiet of the Bloomsbury Bistro, a former hard-nosed field-hockey star is plating a bowl of soup for the last lunch table of the day. Her fingers are sure, and her feet are light, even now in her 50s. A decade of running her restaurant inside the Mission Road Antique Mall has let owner and chef Cari Jo Cavalcante show Prairie Village her softer side — and her savory side and her pastry side. “I’m unashamed to say that we are known as a ladies-that-lunch place,” Cavalcante says. “They’re the ones who have kept me in business all these years.” Growing up with two older brothers in Lititz, Pennsylvania, Cavalcante woke each morning to the smell of chocolate being poured at the Wilbur Chocolate factory. “When I make chocolate BY ganache, it takes me right back J O N AT H A N to that smell,” Cavalcante says. During the day, she’d BENDER sometimes also catch a whiff of Listerine from the nearby Johnson & Johnson chemical plant. Today, she says, “When I smell Listerine, I don’t have to run into a grocery store and pick it up.” She earned a full athletic scholarship to the University of Central Missouri, graduating with a degree in broadcast and film on the way to fulfilling her dream of becoming a sports broadcaster. She came to Kansas City, took a job as a graphic artist for the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority and snagged an unpaid internship with the Kansas City Kings. But after the last game of her only season with the team, she knew she’d never go back — at least as an employee. “I got into my car and I burst into tears because I knew I didn’t want to be a sports broad-

caster,” Cavalcante says. “I still love sports. I just had a hard time with the attitudes.” It was her love of sports that guided her to the Missouri Special Olympics. She was the Kansas City area director for seven years before returning home, in the 1990s, to Pennsylvania during what she calls her “early midlife crisis.” There, she remembered that when she was bored in high school, she didn’t doodle — she designed restaurants. So she gave herself 10 years to determine if she wanted to own her own eatery. When she returned to Kansas City, she began working at Southmoreland, a noted bed and breakfast on the Plaza. In her three-year stint there, she found herself gravitating toward the kitchen. At the same time, she enrolled at Johnson County Community College to pursue a degree in hospitality management. Her first restaurant job was on the line at Californos, where she also worked as a server. That led to a position at the Classic Cup, where she took shifts in the front and the back of the house. Her pastry skills caught the eye of Rod Anderson, and she was hired at the Hereford House in Leawood. The position evolved when

the restaurant group opened a central commissary downtown. As production demands grew, Cavalcante was ready for a change. A friend recommended that she have lunch at a bistro inside a suburban antique mall. As it turned out, the space was available. Cavalcante saw something and submitted a proposal for the restaurant in February 2001. The Bloomsbury Bistro opened April 23 of that year. “When I was getting ready to open,” she says, “one of my instructors from JCCC looked at me and looked at this place. He said, ‘Well, you’re not going to make it. I wish you the best, but this is a bad location.’ And yet, it’s turned out so great.” The Pitch: What are your culinary inspirations? Cavalcante: My aunt was a huge inspiration to me. She was a self-taught gourmet cook. She was a caterer in New York. She passed away right before our 10th anniversary. Her real claim to fame was her almond pound cake, and I was privileged enough to get the family recipe. I probably have 150 cookbooks at home. I sit and page through them and find things that I like. As you grow as a chef, you can look at a recipe and know if it isn’t going to be a good recipe. I pick and choose and combine them. I

really try to keep an open mind, but I love adding flair or a twist to traditional foods — like adding candied walnuts to our Waldorf salad or tarragon to the dressing. I also think of my clientele. I’d like to do a grilled peanut-butterand-banana sandwich, making my own peanut butter. It would be a great idea, but it probably wouldn’t sell very well. What’s one food you hate? Beef liver. I’m so not a liver lover. My mom’s favorite dish was liver and onions. She’d fry them up, and there was a swing-out window in our kitchen. Whenever we knew we were having liver and onions, we’d try to sit by that window because our boxer would sit under it. Or when our mom wasn’t looking, we’d stuff it under our mashed potatoes because she didn’t care if we didn’t eat our mashed potatoes. What’s your guilty pleasure? I’d have to say desserts. I will order dessert every time I go out. That’s probably why we’re known for our carrot cake here. We don’t go through a day without selling some. I recently went to Seasons 52, and there were nine of us, and everybody had dessert because it was just a little bite. I thought that was one of the smarter concepts I’d seen. What’s always in your kitchen? Vanilla soy, although I don’t cook with soy. Dijon mustard is a staple. And there’s always some kind of pasta — rigatoni — because it’s what I grew up with. What’s your dream drinking-eating destination? I would have to say the French Laundry. It’s definitely on the list. I’m a real fan of Thomas Keller. He takes the time to do it right. A resolution of mine is to have more patience. A chef is only as good as … Their standards, because I think everyone goes into the business with high standards and then gets beaten down through the years. You have to be able to maintain those high standards and take the hard road as far as staffing.

Goth Complex NIKA ROZA DANILOVA AND THE HARSH OPERATIC GLOOM OF ZOLA JESUS

G

oth, noise and dark pop are appropriate genre labels for Nika Roza Danilova’s body of work, but Zola Jesus, Danilova’s current project, has a way of dodging musical pigeonholes. It ventures into difficult-to-digest tonal territories, but buried amid the droning industrial BY atmospherics is something resembling catchy pop hooks. ABBIE Danilova studied opera in her STUTZER youth, which adds a heady beauty to the fractured sound. Conatus, released last fall, is Zola Jesus’ most recent full-length. The Pitch recently spoke with Danilova in advance of Zola Jesus’ show at the Granada. The Pitch: You’ve participated in classical vocal competitions. Is it easier on you now that you’re performing your own songs, and it’s your project? Danilova: It’s definitely easier because I have the control, whereas when you’re singing someone else’s work, you’re held to not only tradition, but you’re held to what they intended for you to sing. And so you’ve got to have the long-form pieces will be a part of the future. Do you want to learn different instruments right voice. You’ve got to have the right tonality. I mean, everything has got to be according to to bring out different or more emotions in your something else. And so it’s extremely stress- pieces? Yeah. I’m learning piano.

players. I’ve so many ideas for string players, so whenever I go anywhere and I see a cellist or something, I chase them down. Also, now we practice and rehearse, whereas we didn’t really used to, and just reinterpreting the songs and just growing. It’s just this kind of journey with these musicians. Do lyrics come to you like melodies do? Or are those more difficult to create? They are usually pretty easy, but they’re not always, um, that good. Because I kind of feel like it’s first-thought, best-thought with everything, including lyrics. And sometimes, what comes out of your mouth the first time around doesn’t always make sense, or it’s really plain. It’s like plain-speak, so much that it sounds kind of conventional. So much that if you sing it every night on tour for a year and a half, you start to go insane. But lyrically, I write things that are very simple because I just feel like, why take the kernel of something and roll it in sugar and put some flowers on it, when you can just say it as you mean it, you know? And the more you say it, the more it’s kind of like this affirmation in a way. I like that, as far as staying true to what I’m really trying to say. When you’re done with your tours and you actually go home home, do you still enjoy it? The normalcy? Or is it the upheaval of life that drives you? Oh, I love being at home.

The Latenight Callers Ring Twice on Easy Virtues

E

asy Virtues, the upcoming, second EP from locals the Latenight Callers, turned up at The Pitch offices the other day inside a clear evidence bag – the kind with a pink seal at the top and entry spaces for case numbers and crime-lab information. The cover of the CD is black-and-white, and there’s an old typewriter on it. The red lipstick, frostypaned office windows and black telephones are missing, but all that can be inferred from the music: an ominous, smoky, electronic chug lurking behind the sultry vocals of singer Julie Berndsen. The Latenight Callers are squeezing a lot of juice out of the fruits of noir, and so it was less than surprising to learn that the five-piece had recently returned from a visit to San Francisco, where they played the 10th anniversary of the Noir City film festival. continued on page 26 M O N T H X X–X X , 2 0 0 X

The B’Dinas, with Empty Spaces, Deadringers, and I Hate You Just Kidding Blues, funk and classic rock are the primary touchstones for the predominantly female B’Dinas (four girls, one boy). But they have a tendency to throw jarring, arty curveballs into the middle of their songs, which is something I’ll usually swing at. The locals are celebrating their second release, the EP Morning Party. Joining them is I Hate You, Just Kidding, a dreamy boy-girl, folk-pop act from California.

Billy Beale Benefit Last year, the The Pitch profiled Billy Beale, a midtown-haunting bluesman with a checkered past. He’s back in jail again, busted cold on a three-year-old DUI felony. Before he was hauled away, he recorded an album, Slide Dog Billy, with the local cowpunks in Them Damned Young Livers. The Livers, Crybaby Ranch, Blue Boot Heelers and others are gathering to raise money to cover the cost of the record, and maybe a little something extra for when Beale gets out of the clink.

Rather than one specific iconic artist (such as Talking Heads, whose work was celebrated in the January tribute), the local bands assembled are drawing from a general genre: honky-tonk.

savage love Coming to a Head Dear Dan: I’m a straight 24-year-old female who has known my fiancé since freshman year of college. He has a fetish where he likes to watch women use the bathroom. While peeing in front of someone isn’t that big of a deal, shitting is. We had a lovely night going, when I had to poop. We went into the bathroom together. He got very horny, but I couldn’t go. I said maybe I’ll be more relaxed later, and he goes, “Well, let’s fuck in here in case BY you have to go.” He wanted to DAN do it sitting on the toilet with me on top. No go, so we went in S AVA G E my room and had amazing sex. I wanted to have sex again, but he wanted to wait to see if I could go. He said, “Drink some coffee! Smoke a cigarette!” The pressure turned me off. (1) Is this my fault for bringing it up? (2) Was his pressuring me wrong? (3) How should I approach this situation without sounding like a bitch? Pressured Over Observable Performance Dear POOP: (1) You didn’t do anything wrong, and he didn’t do anything wrong when he got excited about the possibility of having his fantasy realized. (2) He shouldn’t have pressured you to perform once it became clear that it wasn’t gonna happen. (And he shouldn’t encourage you to smoke cigarettes.) Shitting in front of someone — and here’s hoping that’s as far as his interest in poop goes — isn’t easy, and badgering you won’t help. If he knows what’s good for him, he’ll hang back, let you set the pace, and thank his lucky stars that he found someone willing to even try. (3) “I know you’re excited, honey, and it excites me to see you so excited. But dial it back a bit, OK? Next time I feel like I can give it a try, I will let you know. But all this pressure is making me feel constipated. ” Dear Dan: I’m an 18-year-old male. After three years of silence, my ex-girlfriend texted me out of the blue. Part of my heart still aches for her. Most of her messages sound flirtatious, but it could be me being optimistic. She said, “I don’t think of you as more than a friend. But I would be open to a relationship if I started having feelings for you again.” Is this a lost cause? Love and Memories Enflamed Dear LAME: Forgive me for what I’m about to type. You’re being used. Your ex-girlfriend sent that out-of-the-blue text because she wanted to feel wanted. Maybe she got dumped recently, or maybe she’s in the midst of a dry spell, or maybe she’s just selfish and cruel. Most likely, she’s after the ego boosts your texts provide. To keep those boosts coming, she’s dangling a little false hope in front of you: She told you the truth so she wouldn’t have to admit to herself that she’s a manipulative liar and then tacked on some 38

impossible-to-disprove crap to keep you textin’. You dated her when you were 15. You’re not in love with her; you’re in love with the way she made you feel. There are other girls who can make you feel that way. Go find one. Dear Dan: I’m a 35-year-old GGG married male with a 33-year-old not-so-GGG wife. We’ve been together 17 years and married four months. She was a virgin when we met and has never been too sexual a person. I’m very sexual, but she kept me satisfied with oral, dress-up, sex in different places — things like that. Things started to fall off sexually around year 10. She said she felt I was never going to marry her, so why should she give me 100 percent? I enjoy oral and watching women masturbate, and she wouldn’t do either and blamed it on the marriage thing. Five years later, I gave her the big wedding she wanted. I enjoy being married. But she won’t do anything besides traditional sex — and only when she’s awake enough, and I have to initiate. She says she feels uncomfortable doing things like oral, toys or masturbation. I don’t want her to do anything that makes her feel uncomfortable or degraded. But what I’m asking for isn’t “kinky,” certainly when compared with some things I could be into. There’s no sign of her even trying. Am I doomed to a bad marriage, or is there something I can do? Talking isn’t working. I feel she lied to me to get me to marry her. Lots of Sexual Tension Dear LOST: All your options are bad: (1) Stay married, stay faithful and stew in your own frustration and resentment until you die; (2) stay married, cheat with cause, and hope you don’t get caught; (3) inform her that you’re not going to ask her to do things she’s not comfortable with, but you’re not going to ask for permission to do those things with other women, and be cast as the villain when she files for divorce; or (4) initiate the divorce yourself and find a new partner who enjoys sex and the kinds of sex you do before you marry her. (Hint: If she likes sex and likes the stuff you like, she’ll want to do that stuff whether you’re married to her or not.) Sorry, but that’s all I got.

HEY, EVERYBODY: You know how Mormons “baptize” dead people who weren’t Mormons because they believe they have a right to choose Mormonism for the deceased? And you know how the Mormon Church says being gay is a choice? Now you can choose homosexuality for dead Mormons. Go to AllDeadMormonsAre NowGay.com, enter the name of a deceased Mormon or ask the site to find one for you, and that Mormon gets to have a gay afterlife!
