Yes, the Dukan diet. What did you eat? Nothing but protein for the first week, and then you went very gradually back into fruits and vegetables and things. And you could eat all you wanted to. You never had an empty stomach growling, but you had to push yourself into ketosis and then stay right on the edge, and that was basically how it worked.

Yes, the flat-belly diet, and every meal you’re supposed to have, like, a healthy fat like avocado and oil or dark chocolate, and you’re supposed to have four small meals a day, so they’re like 400-calorie meals. Did it work? I think a little bit, but I didn’t stick with it probably long enough, ’cause, I don’t know, I just got tired of not eating the food that I liked.

Muddling Through Impressions on how the Syria solution is changing the game
AUTO INJURY • CIVIL LITIGATION
COMMENT | DIPLOMACY
Aluminum Stainless Steel Brass Copper Gold Silver
After a staggering display of mush, muddle and miscues by the world’s lone superpower, a rogue nation appears ready to give up the chemical weapons it supposedly never had. Without a shot’s being fired. This, of course, is a miserable failure in the eyes of the gaseous class, amateur hour in real time, because, well — it wasn’t planned. — Timothy Egan, New York Times, 9/12/13
egarding Syria, some thoughts on our emerging, yet largely unplanned, political and governmental universe: 1. Has the world changed? Yes, the geopolitical universe can no longer be explained through Cold War paradigms, when every move, every event, reflected bipolar competition, complete with a cast of surrogates. Going back even before the Cold War, we had a world reduced to constellations of empires and colonies. 2. In this new, cacophonous world, do “grand strategies” have a future? Not as much as they did when we could count on the Cold War paradigm to reduce the number of variables. For sure, gunboat diplomacy has run its course — which makes all those the Republican “neocons” look ever more ridiculous. 3. After playing second fiddle to the Pentagon for decades, the art of diplomacy is emerging again. 4. It needs to be understood that diplomacy is both bureaucratic and social, often practiced during the well-known two-martini lunch — or on a tennis court. President Kennedy learned of Khrushchev’s interest in negotiating our way out of the Cuban Missile Crisis from ABC newsman John Scali, who had the message passed to him over lunch by a friend — who happened to be a top Soviet spy. Yes, diplomacy is a messy and always imprecise business. 5. We can’t understand the various quandaries the United States finds itself in on the world stage without understanding recent history. Consider: In succession we experienced Vietnam, the Six Day War, the Iran embassy debacle, Lebanon, the Bush I invasion, Iran-Contra, 9/11 and the Bush II invasions. As do all countries, America continues to react most to its recent and not-so-recent past — both successes and failures. (Why are the Germans are so stubborn on the matter of maintaining a high-value Euro? Because they remember the 1920s, the Weimar Republic, hyperinflation and Hitler, that’s why.) 6. Do the pundits and most politicians grasp all this? In this ambiguous new world, where time and space are compressed ever more? Timothy Egan gets to the nub of the matter: “But outcomes don’t really matter to those obsessed by who won and who lost, those who see all politics as up-and-down nonsense instead of a clash of ideas with real consequences. [Syria] has to be cast in the tired terms of the daily struggle for
sound-bite supremacy. It’s a debacle. A blunder. A humiliation.” 7. Moreover, the American public doesn’t want to wade into this mess, for reasons that should be obvious. Recent history again instructs those who are paying attention. Bush’s war left an imprint: Don’t believe the government out of hand whenever WMDs are mentioned, and don’t embrace any idea founded on the catch-all of “making the world safe for democracy.” We haven’t forgotten about all our challenges on the homefront, either. Why do we cut food stamps while pouring another $10 billion a month into Iraq and Afghanistan? 8. The president and his secretary of state have stumbled into tactics that can be summed up as “muddling through,” the term first used by Charles Lindblom, who was referring to unplanned incrementalism — taking baby steps toward big decisions instead of unleashing cataclysms. 9. Does “muddling through” represent a decline in American power? It does if by “decline” we refer to that Cold War world, which is no more. For one thing, the American economy relative to the rest of the world isn’t what it was a half-century ago — alone at the top. While still the largest single national economy in the world, ours is no longer the giant as it once was. Consider: The combined European Union economies taken together have recently surpassed the U.S. in GDP. (You know, “old Europe,” socialist Europe, universal health care Europe, gun control Europe, that Europe.) And aside from its ability to deliver pinpoint strikes (which makes Obama’s threat credible), our military can be more like a modern-day Gulliver when we task it with impossible missions like regime change or even culture change. 10. As for Obama’s leadership? Again, Timothy Egan: “The net result, accidental or not, is that Syria is no longer just an American problem. They say they will give up the poison gas that, wink, wink, was never used. The principle, as Obama said, ‘that with modest effort and risk we stop children from being gassed to death,’ is there on the table for a world that preferred to look the other way. And, added bonus: the neocon warriors are gone, homeless in both parties. All of this is a hugely positive leap from where we were a week, a month, or a year ago.” 11. One more thought: Might it be that we would all benefit if world leaders would have those two-martini lunches more often?

The Price of Coal by ted s. mcGregor jr.
y old office window looked out on the railroad. I got to watch train after train go by, brightened with graffiti applied who knows where. I’d see airplane fuselages, giant wind-farm rotors and boxcar after boxcar filled with who knows what. Of course, I’d also see open-top cars with a seam of black poking out — coal. Coal miners have hit paydirt in Montana and Wyoming, and as America is weaning itself off the dirty fuel in favor of comparatively clean natural gas, they’ve been looking for new buyers. With China and other parts of Asia in their sights, they brainstormed how to ship way, way more coal overseas. They’ve planned three new port terminals in Washington and Oregon, and estimates put the train traffic to feed them at 34 long coal trains per day, running through Sandpoint and Spokane. In Montana and Idaho, the silence of public officials has been deafening; fortunately, in Washington and Oregon, public pressure has recently prompted state and federal reviews of the plans. (British Columbia is taking a second look at expansion plans, too.) There are major health impacts to study, based on blowing coal dust, and increased traffic will require major infrastructure investments in cities and towns across the Northwest. When I watched the trains, I imagined where those cars were going — and that’s where this plan becomes untenable. Just as we’re trying to cut our greenhouse gas emissions, we’d be sending China the raw materials to create those same emissions. It’s just plain ridiculous. Reason, however, seems to be winning the day. First comes the recent BBC headline that China has finally had enough and plans to apply central state control to the use of coal. Why? Last January, a dark cloud literally descended on vast parts of China and just sat there for weeks, creating one of the biggest environmental crises in its history. Witnesses said you could not see 200 feet in front of you, and a recent study shows bad air is cutting the average Chinese lifespan by five years. Basic math is working against the coal ports, too. Three years ago, when these plans were hatched, the price of a metric ton of coal was topping $140; today, that price is $74. Without profit, there will be no project. Still, it’s no time to let up; our public officials — here, regionally and nationally — need to hear that we won’t put up with being exploited for a dying, dirty industry. Yes, we want jobs, but we’re not that desperate. n You can attend a public hearing on the plan to build a new coal-shipping terminal in Longview, Wash., at 5 pm, Wednesday, Sept. 25, at the Spokane Convention Center.

Not Sacred Enough Even magical places like Chief Mountain in Montana are under siege by gas and oil drillers BY DAVE STALLING
WE ASK. rivercityred. blogspot.com
8 INLANDER SEPTEMBER 19, 2013
t is difficult to know what’s sacred nowadays because, somehow, money has come to top the list. Why else would anyone consider drilling around Chief Mountain in northwest Montana, along the border of Glacier National Park and the Blackfeet Nation? Elk, bighorns, pronghorn, badgers, wolverines, lynx, mountain lions, wolves all thrive on this land. Clear, clean rivers along the Rocky Mountain Front sustain some of the last remaining healthy populations of west slope cutthroat trout. And grizzlies still wander out onto the plains as they did when the explorers Lewis and Clark came through in 1805. According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, this is the place that contains the “top 1 percent” of wildlife habitat remaining in the Continental United States. So if anything can be called “sacred,” I think this is the place. Seven years ago, I assisted a coalition of local hunters, anglers, ranchers, outfitters, businessmen and tribal leaders in a successful effort to protect a significant chunk of the Rocky Mountain front from gas and oil development. As a professional conservationist, I had to be cautious about using emotional arguments. But then at a community meeting, I had to wholeheartedly agree with Stoney Burke, a local man from Choteau, who was accused of being “emotional” about Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front. In reply, he pounded his fist on a table and shouted, “I you can’t be emotional about a place like this, then what the hell can you be emotional about?”
I thought then: If only everyone were as passionate and emotional about sacred places. The mountain has been sacred to the Blackfeet for centuries, and it remains sacred to many First Nation people throughout North America who travel to the mountain for sweet-grass ceremonies, placing prayer flags and other religious rites. When white settlers came through in the early 1900s, they observed Native burial sites along the base of the Chief. But what protection does a sacred place have these days? Recently, the Bureau of Indian Affairs allowed leasing a large swath of land around Chief Mountain for gas and oil development, with the blessing of some tribal leaders and members eager for profit. Others were angered, sickened and saddened. The Blackfeet can be as divided and conflicted as the rest of us when it comes to such things. These days, our society is so divorced from our planet that we forget that clean air, clean water and wild places continue to sustain us all. Elders from southern Alberta’s Siksika Band pass on this tale: Near the end of days, a Great White God will appear from the top of Chief Mountain, and upon his departure the mountain will crumble and be destroyed. I wonder what drilling, what attack on the mountain, will have occurred before the mountain crumbles. I hope we can avoid this atrocity. Dave Stalling is a writer and wildlife advocate living in Missoula. A version of this editorial first appeared in High Country News (hcn.org).
BRIAN BENDER: It’s not a gun issue, it’s a “heart of man,” mental health, economic pressures or what have you that seem to push people to the edge where they think violence (guns, beating old men to death, domestic violence, rape etc.) are the only option. JAMIE BOSANKO: Why despite roughly 90 percent public approval for universal background checks, Congress is still so hopelessly useless that it can’t get anything passed, and this keeps happening. MELISSA DOBEAS: The importance of putting D.C. behind the Washington part so I don’t have a heart attack when reading ”Shooting in Washington Naval Yard.” (Not the Inlander, of course). CJ VOGES: How in the heck did this guy get in with weapons? There were serious breaches in security! Was anyone on staff armed? PAUL LINDBERG: What makes cops and military people so brittle that gun-violence becomes a reasonable form of self-expression. MARGIE MONTAGUE GANNON: Why we have become a country of such anger. When did we stop using reason? JERI FLAIG: Too many guns available in this world. JON OGLESBY: Funding treatment for mental illness. STEPH MARR: It’s not about guns. Too many or lack thereof. It’s sadly about people randomly killing others. TARA MCALOON: I hope Spokanites stop for a minute and think how lucky they are that this didn’t happen here. And realize that this isn’t an excuse to insult each other over our political beliefs.

McCain: Never Think Before You Attack BY ANDY BOROWITZ
en. John McCain (R-Arizona) was harshly critical this week of President Obama’s nationally televised address about Syria last week, telling CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “The President’s decision to think before attacking another country flies in the face of American foreign policy.” “The United States of America has been involved in countless armed conflicts since this great nation was founded,” McCain said. “Many of those would never have happened if we’d stopped to think about them first. Sadly, the President seems not to have learned this lesson of history.” Calling the President “an Ivy League law professor who never met a thought he didn’t like,” McCain said that he was urging Obama
“to please take thinking off the table.” “The stakes for America couldn’t be higher right now,” he said. “Our global reputation for rushing into war with no advance planning is hanging by a thread.” McCain said that he is attempting to schedule a meeting in the Oval Office, where he plans to deliver a “strong and clear” message to Obama: “Mr. President, what you are doing is playing into the hands of the enemy. Thinking solves nothing.” n For more fake news from Andy Borowitz, visit borowitzreport.com.
COMMENT | CLIMATE
Names With Meaning BY JIM HIGHTOWER
nvironmental groups tend to be a bit grim-faced, since they’re constantly confronting industrial uglies that range somewhere between awful and apocalyptic. So it’s a treat when one of them turns impishly playful, as a group of climate change activists called 350 Action recently did. In an act of “serious fun,” this bunch has launched an online petition calling on the World Meteorological Organization to alter slightly the way it names hurricanes. Instead of the generic “Bob” or “Juanita,” 350 Action wants the more numerous and more powerful storms we’ve been getting for the past several seasons to be named after head-in-the-sand politicos who — in mindless defiance of science — are climate change deniers. Thus, we’d have Hurricane Boehner, in honor of the House Speaker who goes to extremes to derail regulations that would stop profiteering polluters from wreaking havoc on the globe’s climate. In standing against needed policy changes, Boehner has been like a rock — only dumber. So he deserves
to have a particularly destructive hurricane branded with his name. Also, since the Weather Channel now attaches monikers to other big weather events, opportunities abound for tagging scientifically challenged politicians with public accountability for their irresponsibility. It would be a useful learning experience, for example, to see the damage done by Tornado “Oops” Perry, or to witness the severe flooding caused by the Michele Bachmann Unstable Air Mass over Minnesota. And Sen. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma, who constantly huffs that climate change is a “hoax,” should be credited with the Inhofe Drought of Biblical Proportions parching the Southwest and Great Plains.

A Summer on Engine 446
Rookie wildland firefighter finds confidence and close bonds out on the fire line BY JACOB JONES
cattered across a rocky wasteland of charred pine and scorched brush, stubborn flames flicker against the blackened earth. Yellow-clad firefighters carve trenches into the smoldering hillside, their bent silhouettes breaking the ghostly ribbons of smoke still hanging in the trees. Crew leaders call out work orders over the clinking of shovels on stone. Behind a pair of rhinestone-studded sunglasses, Emily Harpel’s face is streaked with ash. A first-year wildland firefighter, she adjusts her pack and crosses the fire line into “the black.” Heat bakes through the soles of her work boots as she hikes up the incline. “It was a pretty big fire,” she says. Driven by high winds and dry weather, the Depot Springs Road fire burned 50 acres of ponderosa and
pastureland in late August. Wildland firefighters with the Department of Natural Resources and other agencies contained the blaze along this small ridge, about 7 miles east of Cheney. In the two months since she completed her initial training, the 21-year-old Harpel has worked dozens of fires on Engine 446 out of the DNR’s Arcadia District in Deer Park. With the help of her crewmates, she has learned to run a chain saw, operate an engine, decipher radio chatter and identify fire hazards. But Harpel says she also found a new confidence amid a tight-knit community where people work hard, where firefighters can depend on the crew members next to them and where the worst situations often bring out the best in the team.
“You see a lot of things that a lot of people don’t get to see,” she says of firefighting. “You really don’t start to understand until you experience it.”
ashington state’s Department of Natural Resources hires hundreds of seasonal firefighters each summer to protect private and state-owned forestland, often recruiting college students or part-time firefighters from local stations. The regional Arcadia District usually brings on about 30 firefighters to cover approximately 2.1 million acres throughout Spokane, Stevens, Lincoln and Pend Oreille counties. Officials report the DNR has spent about $14.7 million this season on wildfire operations statewide with the ...continued on next page

“A SUMMER ON ENGINE 446,” CONTINUED... height of activity between June and mid-September. A 2013 graduate of Whitworth University, Harpel says she joined the DNR this summer for a challenging and exciting new experience. In June, she spent a week at the DNR’s introductory guard school, learning fire behavior and safety protocols. Alongside more than 40 other recruits, she soaked up PowerPoint presentations on command structures and exercises on different hand tools before getting cleared for duty. “I like doing something a little different,” she said in June. “If you’re adventurous and willing to learn, firefighting’s a great thing.” After guard school, she became one of about 12 first-year firefighters assigned to the Arcadia District. She found herself on Engine 446 with engine leader Roger Holloway and firefighter Chris Whitfield. Holloway, an eight-season firefighter, says Harpel always shows up ready to work and excited to learn. She has proven a quick study at sharpening saw blades and stripping hose. An informal mentor, he often stops to quiz her on safety issues or proper firefighting techniques. With a chuckle, Holloway recalls how psyched Harpel was to first see the column of smoke rising from the Depot Springs Road fire as they approached. “She was jumping up and down inside the truck,” he says. “She was pretty excited.”
ropping their gear in the tall grass, the soot-stained crews spread out in the shade for a quick lunch break. The Depot Springs Road fire still smolders nearby, but they have dug out a fire break all around the head of the fire by now. It’s not going anywhere. Harpel, Holloway and Whitfield perch on the open tailgate of a pickup truck. They wipe sweat from their foreheads with their sleeves and relax. Whitfield pops open a can of dip. Holloway munches an apple, saying it’s the best way to brush your teeth out on a fire. Engine 446 has spent almost every day together this summer. Once strangers, Harpel says they’ve grown close through the fires, work projects, long drives in the engine and other assignments. They chat about the effects of the day’s weather and the strategy used to contain the Depot Springs fire. Every job is a chance to learn.
“Is this the hottest part of the fire?” Harpel questions, referring to the head of the fire. “It’s all like this,” Holloway says. Ed Lewis, a DNR fire suppression forester and supervisor for the Arcadia engine program, soon roars up on a four-wheeler and checks in with each crew on their work assignments for the afternoon. Looking back at the end of the season, Lewis says the Arcadia District has seen more lightning strikes that sparked fires, but fewer new fire starts overall. He estimated Arcadia had responded to about 145 fires by mid-September, well below the average of about 170 fires. “It was just enough to keep us busy and keep the troops busy,” he says. Recounting the season, the crew of Engine 446 ticks off specific fires and memorable moments: Getting doused by aircraft dropping water on the Bluebird fire in July, staging overnight outside a fire near Omak, spending 27 hours straight on a fire line at the Homestead Way fire. “There are times it really stretches you,” Harpel says. “I’ve learned a lot about hard work. … The adrenaline rush of working on a fire really keeps you going.”
ust two weeks after Harpel finished guard school, 19 welltrained firefighters died in the Yarnell Hill Fire near Prescott, Ariz. As the country grieved, fire investigators worked to piece together how the experienced hotshot crew was overrun. Not since 1933 had so many wildland firefighters died in a single blaze. Arcadia District dedicated a day to mourning the lost crew, emphasizing safety precautions and discussing the deadly ramifications of fire danger. Harpel says the day of reflection helped reinforce the stakes of her work as well as the kinship of the fire community. “It really was eye-opening, I think, to know that those kinds of things still happen,” she says. “It ... hit us pretty hard.” Lewis says Harpel worked hard to rise to the expectations of the job. As the wildfire season starts to wind down, Lewis says he hopes to see her return to firefighting in the future. “She’s a great worker, great work ethic,” he says. “She will be missed.” With a bittersweet excitement, Harpel has already started on her next adventure. She checked in her firefighting gear and bid farewell to her crew on Aug. 31. A few days later, she flew to Tanzania in southeastern Africa to teach English for the next year. Harpel says firefighting helped build her sense of independence and self-reliance as she prepared to work overseas for the next 12 months. The money she earned will help her get reestablished when she returns, but the experience was the true reward. “It goes fast,” she says. “I feel like I just started at guard school, and now it’s over.”
aking on a wildfire can make a person feel small, Harpel says, but it also offers some staggering perspective. Disaster brings people together, ranks of crew members labor together at something bigger than themselves. Thousands of firefighters, shoulder-to-shoulder, working saws and shovels to push back an unwieldy inferno. In those moments, she’s learned to trust the firefighters next to her — the often grimy and good-natured crew of Engine 446. She’s tried to return that same support. “I feel like they’re my brothers now,” she says. “No matter what, we were always there for each other.” On long shifts and late nights, the crew stood together, far from home and surrounded by flames. They traded jokes and shared secrets. Those were some of the best times, she says, when the intensity of the work cleared away all of life’s other distractions. In the darkness, she could occasionally look up from her shovel and gaze out over acres of glowing embers, counting herself lucky to behold such an overwhelming sight. “It’s just kind of incredible how powerful fire can be,” she says. “When we’re working sometimes, we’d take a moment and just be like, ‘Wow.’ It’s kind of hard not to watch.” n email@example.com

You’re on Camera! Spokane police change course and decide to buy body cams; plus, clashing over the Ridpath EYES ON COPS
Citing an ongoing court case over dashboard-mounted cameras, the Spokane Police Department says it plans to buy BODY CAMERAS instead as part of the first phase of implementing recommendations from the Use of Force Commission. The $797,000 purchase also includes a new set of Tasers for the department. In its final report this spring, the commission recommended equipping officers with body cameras and standardizing equipment. The purchase includes 220 body cameras, 220 Tasers and three years of service from “Evidence.com,” the system the department will use to store the videos and Taser use data. The money is part of $1.1 million the City Council took from the city’s reserves in April to spend on the commission’s recommendations. Carly Cortright, the department’s business service director, says a case in Seattle, where KOMO News has sued the Seattle police over release of dashboard camera video, raises questions about a contradiction in state law: While the videos should be available under the Public Disclosure Act, a state privacy law specifically classifies dashboard video as not public until three years have passed (the time a citizen has to file a civil suit against
a city for, say, an officer-involved shooting.) The case is currently before the state Supreme Court and a decision could be months away. Cortright says the department’s legal advisor suggested Spokane police should buy body cameras instead, since they’re not included in the law in question. — HEIDI GROOVER
As the RIDPATH HOTEL has sat empty, it’s drawn a number of different suitors. Most recently, Ron Wells, a developer known for restoring historic properties, has declared his vision to turn most of the hotel into an apartment complex, featuring some traditional apartments and a number of very small, inexpensive units. But there is also Art Coffey, a former CEO of the Red Lion hotel chain, who wants to keep it as a hotel, expanding rooms and restoring some of the Ridpath’s old grandeur. Wells’ group had most of the pieces, but Coffey purchased five of the condominium units from controversial developer Greg Jeffreys, mere days before Jeffreys was indicted on dozens of counts of fraud. It sparked a
lawsuit earlier this year from Wells’ group, which Wells said found that “the Jeffreys units were created illegally with trumped-up votes.” Coffey is appealing the decision. “My first motivation is to clean up that part of downtown,” he says. “I think it’s really sad what’s happening there. But I’m not going to be taken advantage of in the meantime.” Either way, Wells says his plans are moving forward. The lawsuit may influence the precise makeup of hotel rooms and apartments, but he says it “won’t change what we’re building in either event.” Wells estimates that construction on the Ridpath may start by January. — DANIEL WALTERS
HELP FOR THE HOMELESS
TRUTH MINISTRIES, a Spokane men’s homeless shelter, will close its doors at the end of the month unless donors can raise enough money to keep it afloat. The decade-old shelter sleeps 50 men per night and even more as the nights get colder, on a shoestring $50,000 yearly budget. It’s one of three men’s shelters in the city. According to its founder, Marty McKinney, Truth Ministries, which relies solely on donations, has been running on a $2,800 monthly deficit ever since the economy tanked four years ago. McKinney says he and his wife, Julie, have scraped together enough money to cover September’s mortgage bill and insurance costs, but they still have utilities to pay for, a leaky roof to replace and a gas stove to repair. “What are we going to do? How are we going to pay the bills?” McKinney says. “We believe we’ve come this far, there’s no reason to back it in yet, but it’s kind of hard not to feel depleted.” You can help keep lights on at Truth Ministries by donating online at gofundme.com/4a1q50 or sending a check to P.O.

it was a way to let students use the middle school’s quality facilities and reduce crowding. Glenewinkel says the district could have kept the building closed to “avoid any political fallout,” but chose to use what was best for students. But to critics of the transition to K-8, the boarded-up windows represent an outrage. “The district has absolutely pushed full steam ahead into implementing a system that our district does not have an infrastructure to do,” parent Mindy Stewart says. She also laments how East Farms lacked lockers, forcing middle-grade students to carry heavy bags from class to class. Fuller says that’s the one complaint she heard from students. “They’ve wanted lockers for three years,” Fuller says. “Lockers are lovely.” If the recent bond proposal had passed, Fuller says, she’s absolutely confident that lockers could have been installed. But many opponents of K-8 campaigned against it, and it failed miserably. Nationally, the evidence over K-8 has been inconclusive. Some studies suggest it benefits students by eliminating the academically risky transition from elementary to middle school; others found no significant difference. But in East Valley, the setup is a unique hybrid, an attempt to capture the best of both worlds. As students approach the middle grades, they start taking classes from separate teachers, like they would in middle school. On Mondays, eighth graders and some seventh graders are bused over to the old East Valley Middle School building, where they

There hasn’t been a spike in behavioral problems. There hasn’t been a mass exodus from the district. Glenewinkel says he expected standardized test scores to dip initially. Instead, with a few exceptions, he says they’ve increased. “If K-8 didn’t work, we wouldn’t see an increase in our graduation rate, we wouldn’t see an increase in the number of kids who are completing college courses, we wouldn’t see increased attendance, we wouldn’t have seen decreased discipline [problems],” Glenewinkel says. His critics counter that the kids graduating at increased rates never experienced the K-8 system. Glenewinkel says that misses the point of the change, which was to wake up the entire district, shaking it free from mediocrity. Glenewinkel says he’s seen the entire district, at all age levels, transform. “The feel of the schools is different,” Glenewinkel says. “The schools feel calm, they feel like communities.”
hile the current board has been unanimous in its votes to move to do away with middle school, that could all change this November. East Valley’s long, hard journey over the past few years could be completely reversed. With three positions up for grabs, the two incumbents are the only candidates supportive of the K-8 transition. The rest fall between skepticism over the process and outright antagonism over the changes. At least one change on the board is guaranteed. The two new candidates in District 5, Mike Novakovich and Deanna Ervin, have nearly identical positions on K-8. They aren’t necessarily opposed to the idea behind the change, but believe the implementation has been a disaster and would support carefully returning to traditional middle schools. Glenewinkel, for his part, chuckles when asked what he hopes to bring to the district in the next three years. “As much as I want to be here, I’m pretty realistic that the odds of me being here three more years are pretty slim,” he says. “Any time you have a board that turns over, then the superintendent is at risk. … [But] overall, the work I’ve done here has been pretty powerful.” email@example.com

Washington State students make the “Loser’s Walk” to the University of Idaho after an upset loss in 1954. WSU LIBRARIES’ MASC PHOTO
Reviving Tradition Washington State and Idaho play football on Saturday — and the loser is going to have to walk 8 miles BY MIKE BOOKEY
hen Flip Kleffner was the president of the University of Idaho’s student body in 1954, he made one hell of a promise on the eve of the school’s biggest football game of the season. “At the pep rally the night before the game, I said that if we beat Washington State there would be no school on Monday,” recalls Kleffner last week. “I got back to school and I told the president what I’d said.” The Vandals did beat Washington State the next day, by a score of 10-0 in Pullman. The upset win (Idaho was 0-5 going into the game) was their first victory over their 8-miles-away neighbor in 29 years, and the Idaho admin-
istration figured they could honor Kleffner’s promise and shut things down for a day. After all, for the first time that pretty much anyone on campus could remember, about 1,000 Washington State students — cheerleaders and members of the marching band included — were about to make the hike from Pullman to Moscow on foot in a ritual known as the Loser’s Walk. “It was a fierce rivalry. There wasn’t much lost,” says Kleffner. “But we welcomed them with open arms and had a good time.” That 1954 walk was a big deal. It even got a little national press. But it had been a tradition since the
1930s, when the editors of the two schools’ newspapers wagered an 8-mile hike on the outcome of the football game. Soon, student leaders got in on the bet and the conglomeration of losers trekking across the rolling hills that separate the two small-town campuses became ritual. Most of the walks went from east to west, Idaho students cheerfully marching over to Pullman, as you can see on archival film from the WSU library. Kleffner, who played football for the Vandals until injuries sidelined him, went on to serve as the alumni director at Idaho. He still lives in Moscow and follows Vandals football, but acknowledges that the football rivalry, known as the Battle of the Palouse, has cooled — if not completely fizzled — since those years. “I think it lost the fierceness of it that it used to have,” says Kleffner. “Sometimes it feels like they’re just neighbors.” It’s tough for a rivalry — and a tradition like the Loser’s Walk — to survive when the results are so lopsided. Since the Battle of the Palouse began in 1894, Washington State leads the series 70-16 (with three ties) and most of those Idaho wins came before 1930. Since the 1954 stunner, Idaho has won only four matchups, including consecutive games in 1999 and 2000. WSU then reeled ...continued on next page

CULTURE | FOOTBALL “REVIVING TRADITION,” CONTINUED... off seven in a row. The rivalry, which went dormant after 2007, will be resuscitated Saturday night in Pullman. That was the third time the teams put the Battle of the Palouse on extended hold. Between 1979 and 1997, Idaho and WSU matched up only twice. “Rivalry? To me, a rivalry is when the teams line up for the kickoff, nobody can be sure which one will win,” former Idaho coach Jerry Davitch told reporters before the 1978 game that effectively put the Battle of the Palouse to bed for the next two decades. The Loser’s Walk had ceased nearly a decade before. These days, Washington State plays in the illustrious Pac-12 Conference while Idaho has struggled to simply remain in the game on the FBS side (you might remember this as I-A) of Division I. Before that, Idaho was in the Big Sky Conference and Western Athletic Conference, fueling a heated rivalry with Boise State that overshadowed the one just across the state border. WSU, of course, had the Huskies to deal with. But on Saturday, the Battle of the Palouse returns to Martin Stadium. Washington State is 2-1, with a solid victory at USC under its belt; Idaho, though winless, is showing signs of improvement. Among the universities’ student bodies, there’s a feeling that the rivalry between the students (forget what happens on the field for a moment) is reawakening. Over the summer, both schools’ student governments met up and thought they’d breathe some life into the competitive spirit between Pullman and Moscow. “We agreed that we wanted to bring the student rivalry back to this unique situation that we have being so close together,” says Kevin Massimino, vice president of the Associated Students of WSU.

In 1957, Idaho students made the trek to Pullman. WSU LIBRARIES’ MASC WSU and Idaho student bodies plan to compete in food drives, a service hours contest, and at some point a tug-of-war set on the Idaho-Washington border that they hope will set a Guinness World Record. Then, just this week, student leaders decided to up the ante. The Loser’s Walk, at least in some form, would return. “It’s a handshake agreement between [the two student governments]. It’s nothing super-official, but we’re of the opinion that you have to start somewhere,” says Associated Students of the University of Idaho President Max
Cowan, who sees a healthy rivalry between the schools as a way to focus on community involvement. Whatever the outcome on Saturday, one set of students is going to be strapping on some comfortable shoes next week.

t’s no exaggeration to say that Douglas Webster knows Les Misérables inside and out. He was first introduced to the musical around 1987, when a mentor mailed him the original cast recording as a double LP that bore a Post-It note with the simple instructions, “Check this out.” Eighteen months later, he was onstage playing Jean Valjean as an understudy in the third national touring production, which, incidentally, brought him to Spokane for the first time. Over time, Webster would be called on to perform the lead role in various productions of Les Mis again and again. As recently as 2008, he was Valjean in the Coeur d’Alene Summer Theater production of Les Mis, and the musical has been a cornerstone of his teachings as a university professor. With so much of his on- and offstage career rooted in Les Mis, it’s no wonder that Webster feels a strong personal connection to this particular musical, which is based on Victor Hugo’s epic (and epically digressive) 1862 novel of the same name. In a pinch, Webster might even admit to seeing some cosmic harmony between this “opera with a pop sensibility” and his own life trajectory as “an actor that went to opera school,” just as he sees an uncanny happenstance between the director position that opened after Yvonne A. K. Johnson’s departure from the Civic and his being asked to fill it. “I got a phone call after the big upheaval here, saying, ‘Are you available to help us out?’ I checked my schedule, and literally to the day I was available,” he says. “It’s just freakish how that worked. I don’t take it as odd when things like this happen and it’s coincidentally perfect. This is a charmed production.” He says that enjoyment is palpable, and that is due in large part to the Civic’s volunteer actors, who are as talented as many professional casts he has worked with. Natalya Ferch in particular has impressed him with her “organic and smart” acting choices in her role as the adult Cosette. “She said, ‘I don’t want her to be just a kept pet, a trophy. I want to find a way for her to be
THE SHOW WILL GO ON
One part of former Spokane Civic Theatre executive director Yvonne A.K. Johnson’s lawsuit against the organization attempted to stop Les Mis from being performed, due to Johnson’s “substantial intellectual property rights” regarding the performance. But two weeks ago, her attorney Bob Dunn says, Johnson decided to stop pursing the injunction. “Yvonne really didn’t really want to interfere with the community’s ability to enjoy theater,” he says. stronger than that.’ And she has. She’s found a few specific physical actions that the audience will either see or feel. All of a sudden, her Cosette is stronger than most I’ve ever seen.” The strengths of the individual actors have allowed Webster to direct with closer attention to detail instead of concentrating on broad spectacle “where everybody times it to be looking left, and gradually center, and gradually to the right.” “At any given point, an audience member may zero in on one of our actors and track them. And if I’ve done my job right, and if the actors are doing their job right, there will be no point in which that actor just holds space. They are always going to be in the process of going from one place to the next without looking busy; they just have purpose.” Webster is directing for the audience members who “are there to look deeper — the people that love the show but want to watch Cosette the whole time, or figure out why Marius winds up with Cosette and not Éponine.” Ultimately, in the face of any residual tension at the Civic, “it’s got to be fun. It has to be an enjoyable experience for people. This should be joyous. And that’s what the audience is going to see,” Webster says and laughs. “They’re going to see as joyous a production as you can have where everybody dies in the end.” Les Misérables • Sept. 20 to Oct. 20: Thu to Sat, 7:30 pm; Sun, 2 pm • $26-$33 • Spokane Civic Theatre • 1020 N.

SEPTEMBER OCTOBER There is no “arts season.” Passion and creativity don’t quite work that way. But fall in the Inland Northwest is about as close as you can come to such a thing. In between their outdoor adventures of summer and their self-imposed exile to the indoor spaces of winter, people in this region like to get cultural when the leaves fall. You’ll see evidence of that in the 55 events we’re recommending you check out — from book signings to rock shows, gallery tours to film festivals. We’re also exploring the engines behind the creative culture of our region. The MOVERS — people taking the scene to the next phase. The SHAKERS — those who are rattling your perception of what can be done in Spokane. The THINKERS — the people who take the time to make sense of everything around us. And of course, the DOERS — the people who put the rubber to the asphalt and make things happen. Enjoy this arts season. It’s going to be a good one. — MIKE BOOKEY, culture editor

hannon Roach Halberstadt is new to Spokane, but she’s already proud to be here. On a recent chilly morning, she’s wearing a denim jacket — one that already has a metal Spokane Expo ’74 pin affixed to the collar. Halberstadt isn’t even on the job yet as the new executive director of the Spokane Arts Fund — she’s finishing up her MOVER position this week with the Pacific Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (which helps put on the Grammy awards) — but she’s already immersing herself in Spokane’s culture.

MEET SHANNON ROACH HALBERSTADT, THE SPOKANE ART SCENE’S NEW BEST FRIEND BY LEAH SOTTILE
new records at local shops, eaten out at Mizuna and Santé, sipped coffee at the Rocket, watched the Terrible Buttons play at nYne and rocked out to the Postal Service at the Knitting Factory. Her move to Spokane and finding a job in arts administration here was all serendipitous. As a longtime Seattle resident who was a vital part of the art and music scene there, she says she was planning to move to Spokane “for love.” She would be with her husband, but, as an arts administrator, she wasn’t sure where she would land professionally. But then the position with the Spokane Arts Fund opened up. She applied. And she landed it.
Halberstadt’s entrance onto the Spokane arts stage is a highly anticipated one, and not only because of her extensive résumé. She’s worked on the front lines of the Seattle arts scene through grassroots movements and nonprofit organizations. She’s not a stuffy arts gazer: She came up in the underground music scene, has posters of hardcore bands in her house and truly believes that art is vital to a city’s identity. To her, a vital arts scene is everything from white-walled galleries to gritty punk clubs. After working at the University of Washington’s Henry Art Gallery and as the house manager at On the Boards theater, Halber-
stadt quickly became known for her work in the underground music scene in Seattle — particularly at Redmond’s Old Firehouse and as the managing director of the Vera Project, a nonprofit, all-ages music venue. “Especially in the ’90s and early 2000s, there was a lot of stigma against popular music and young people and everything else,” she says. The Firehouse and the Vera Project were “intentionally breaking down those barriers.” At those venues, Halberstadt and her colleagues focused on connecting with youth through art — and not just the traditional mediums. In addition to hosting
live music, the venues hosted silkscreening workshops, graffiti classes, photography instruction. And the venues trusted kids, depending on youth volunteers to even be able to operate: Kids ran sound, took tickets and cleaned up after shows. In the 1990s, Halberstadt was on the front lines of a fight against the infamous Teen Dance Ordinance, which gouged so deep into the all-ages music scene, it threatened its existence altogether. But through the Vera Project, she helped forge relations with government officials skeptical of why punk rock was so vital to the city’s identity. Roach says the groundwork

is already laid in Spokane for the arts scene to explode — she says amazing work has been done here by the Arts Fund and city Arts Commission. And there’s tons of talent. “I don’t think I need to tell you that there’s no shortage of creativity here. People are making really great art, really great music, really great visual art, good performance — across the board, it’s good stuff,” she says. “I think we can really start to articulate the impact of how arts are a part of Spokane’s identity, and how arts can really help to make Spokane a great place to live, a great place to work, a great place to attract talent.” She says part of her initial work will be creating strategic plans for the Spokane Arts Fund and figuring out how to creatively match art with economic development, education and civic engagement.
“How can we make sure that art is a part of all of these conversations, so it becomes part of the overall identity of Spokane? So it’s just integrated — it’s part of every conversation, it’s part of what people think of when they think of Spokane,” she says. Her longtime home of Seattle eventually came to realize that punk rock was a part of what made the city so special. She thinks she can help make something similar happen in Spokane. “That’s not easy to do. … How do we make arts, just — indispensable? Part of the fabric of who we are?” she says. “I think that shift takes time.” She’s nothing but optimistic. She already sees that Spokane is something special. “We need to brag outside of our borders,” she says. “I think that Spokane could be a really good lesson in mid-sized cities and the arts.” n

OLIVE + BOONE SHAKES UP CONVENTIONAL IDEAS IN FASHION AND ART WITH ITS EDGY, MODERN HEADWEAR BY CHEY SCOTT
rin Haskell’s hats aren’t for wallflowers. Women who wear her creations, adorned with sweeping feathers, light-reflecting crystals and delicate lace, will stand out in a crowd and should be prepared to be approached with compliments and curious inquiries of “where did you get that?” Since the 29-year-old Spokane marketing specialist-turnedinterior designer launched her boutique, Olive + Boone SHAKER Custom Millinery, about a year ago, her retro-inspired yet modern and thoughtfully designed headwear has been — quite literally — turning heads

across the Inland Northwest and beyond. On a muggy late summer evening, a contemporary, stark white room on the first floor of a brick building tucked off Browne Street in downtown Spokane is packed with high-heeled women and dress-shirted men, all crowding around a long black stage running through the room. As heavy bass beats start thumping out of speakers on either side of the stage, a lanky model wearing a beige trench coat steps out from behind a wall and saunters down the runway with purpose. All eyes are on the small, structured oval-shaped pillbox hat perched on her pixiestyled brunette hair that doesn’t
move an inch as she marches in towering platform heels. More trench-coated models emerge, each wearing similarly shaped yet entirely unique headpieces. Some are bright and bold while others are neutral beiges and grays; a few feature large, stiff bows while others are unadorned. Just when the audience thinks the fashion show unveiling Olive + Boone’s fall collection is almost over, another themed group of hats emerges, bobbing on the models’ heads as they march down the stage: fascinators, wedding veils, poufy lace crowns, English-inspired hats, and finally, heavily adorned headbands of fresh roses and greenery. At the
end, a parade of models in short white dresses lines either side of the runway as milliner and designer Haskell emerges, a wide smile stretched across her face, a black lace crown over her forehead and long, wavy auburn hair. The free-spirited designer has only been making and selling her handmade headwear since last summer, but she’s already been discovered by clients as far away as Paris, New York and Los Angeles. In the beginning, Haskell says she struggled with the decision to keep the business in Spokane because of her products’ appeal to a higher-end, edgier fashion demographic. That all changed when she realized how supportive her friends and even
complete strangers were of her vision to create and sell custom, handmade hats out of Spokane. “I feel like Spokane has your back in that sort of sense — people appreciate others taking a chance,” Haskell says. “If you believe in [Spokane], it will believe in you.” Haskell’s designs are partly inspired by a bygone era during the first half of the 20th century when hats were more of a wardrobe staple, combined with the recent revival of high fashion headpieces sparked by the royal wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William in 2011. Haskell’s formal education in architecture and an admiration of mid-century modern design elements also

2013 INDIVIDUAL WORLD POETRY SLAM FINALS
Models (left and top right) display the headwear of Olive + Boone Custom Millinery, designed by Erin Haskell (right). YOUNG KWAK PHOTO influence her designs. Haskell strives to always use high-quality materials to convey her creative philosophy that each piece is intentionally created and meant to last far beyond the special occasion it was first worn to. Olive + Boone (named after her two dogs) hats are constructed from material like Spanish and Chantilly lace, organza and merino wool, and embellished with bird feathers from a local taxidermist, spun horsehair netting and European crystal beads. Each piece is handmade by Haskell or one of three local seamstresses she’s hired to produce hats for the millinery. Because Olive + Boone’s pieces are handmade from high-end materials, each ranges, on average, between $150 and $300. As much as they’re a fashion accessory, Haskell’s creations are also works of art. A permanent downtown showroom for the millinery is currently in the works, in a space on West Sprague Avenue that
Haskell hopes to have open by October. Although she creates pieces to be worn, Haskell doesn’t consider herself a fashion designer, but a product designer. “This is architecture for your head. I strive to take into consideration the geometry of someone’s face and the angles of their face. It’s more about thoughtful design, and that less is more,” she says. Even though she continuously hears doubtful comments from local residents who say they’d never have an occasion fancy or special enough to wear an Olive + Boone hat, it doesn’t hamper her goal to shake up people’s perceptions of when and where hats can be an appropriate or even unexpected accessory. “You don’t have to live in fabulous New York City to wear something fabulous,” she says. “It’s about taking risks and believing in yourself, and that you are confident in that risk.”

ART FROM THE HEART
926 W. GARLAND AVE
Art lovers, listen up. The Coeur d’Alene Arts & Culture Alliance hosts its 11th annual arts festival, Art from the Heart, in October. If you’re into any type of art, you can’t miss this event. The local arts nonprofit pulls out all the stops, bringing an orchestra, multiple theater companies, bands and musicians, dancers and visual artists. Regional artists and enthusiOCT. 3-12 asts gather to celebrate, share their craft and teach the community in performances and workshops. It continues through a full week at multiple venues, so attendees can choose a day when the whole family can find something they’re interested in. The aim is to build friendships and share opportunities to foster a stronger art community. (BN) Locations throughout Coeur d’Alene, free admission, event times vary
Yes, Spokane’s grassroots cultural event is growing up — turning 6 years old, in fact. The juried art show/performance art/music showcase/ celebration of anything and everything creative returns to the old Music City building during the Visual Arts Tour. Sorry for those backslashes, but this is an event that requires OCT. 4 a few of those to accurately explain. Featuring artists from around the region, Terrain is as good a sampling of Spokane’s creative culture as you’re going to find anywhere in the city at any time of the year. Here’s proof — they received some 700 submissions for the show. You can see 200 of those on display. Not bad. (MB) Music City Building, begins at 5 pm, free

ARCHIE BRAY FOUNDATION RESIDENT SHOW
As you likely know, on the first Friday of every month, galleries (and places serving as galleries for that night) around Spokane exhibit the works of our numerous local artists. But that monthly show is supersized twice a year, in October and February, when it becomes the Visual Arts Tour, a weekend-long celebration of creOCT. 4-5 ativity. This time around, you’ll find 31 different exhibitions spread throughout downtown Spokane and other spots around the city. There will be painting, sculptures, performance art and a sampling of just about any other medium you can think of. It’s a good way to get into gear for the region’s bustling fall arts season.

The annual Archie Bray Foundation Resident Show has become an October institution here, and it’s the best place to see some of the most seriously kick-ass ceramic work around. Jim Kolva and Pat Sullivan, connoisseurs of great, edgy, groundOCT. 4-25 breaking art, invite residents from Montana’s Archie Bray Foundation — an incredible educational institution focused on ceramics — to show their works here each year. The show takes on many different forms: everything from micro-works to coffee cups and giant installations, often with great narratives and heavy explorations of irony.

THE MUSICAL MAN} S
pend half a minute in the company of Inland Northwest actors, whether professional or amateur, and you’re bound to hear them mention the name Troy. That’s it — just Troy, a mononym like Madonna or Morrissey, caSHAKER sually and inevitably dropped into conversation. The assumption is that the surname, Nickerson, is superfluous. And that assumption is usually valid, especially among this region’s close-knit theater community, which Nickerson, now 47, has been a part of since his teens. “I did theater and danced as a kid,” says Nickerson in a voice so soft-spoken that his words are muffled by an ambient breeze. His first show at the Spokane Civic Theater was at the age of 13, and it wasn’t long before he’d jumped from acting to cho-

reography and finally to directing, starting with Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. “I was choreographing a show for Patrick Treadway — I think it was the original Nunsense — and they [the Civic] saw what I was doing and asked me to direct the next show,” he says. “And I’ve pretty much done stuff steadily since then.” “Steadily” is at once the operative word and an understatement. Nickerson estimates the tally of shows he’s helmed is somewhere in the nineties — many of those while still holding down his day job as a stylist at Frenz Hair Design. In the not-too-distant past, it was rare to see a season at the Civic that didn’t feature multiple Nickerson-led productions on the main stage. Around the end of 2012, at the height of the exodus of longtime Civic cast and crew due to the increasingly fraught creative atmosphere there, Nickerson’s name frequently began
TROY NICKERSON HAS BEEN DIRECTING SOME OF THE REGION’S MOST POPULAR MUSICALS FOR 20 YEARS, AND HE’S ONLY PICKING UP STEAM BY E.J. IANNELLI appearing on other playbills, primarily at Lake City Playhouse, where he has overseen acclaimed productions of Rent, K2 (which went on to compete regionally, then nationally in AACTFest), and Into the Woods, starring other Civic émigrés like Andrew Ware Lewis and Abbey Crawford. The quality of those productions made it clear that Nickerson’s reputation among actors as well as theatergoers doesn’t rest on his longevity alone. He has a knack for spectacle that comes across as effortless and unostentatious, although his priorities have changed over time. “When I first started directing, I really came to it from a position as a choreographer,” he says, “and with the shows I was doing, it was actually kind of appropriate. Everything was visual. And definitely during the last period of growth in my life — especially within the last year or so — I come from a different
place. I try to have something to say. Something honest. Even with the goofiest of shows.” Like the actors who omit his surname in conversation, Nickerson holds some things to be universally understood. In this case, it’s the death of his husband, David Gigler, of a heart attack in June 2012. The event continues to affect him in a way that, in his capacity as a director, any shift of emphasis from spectacle to substance seems like an inexorable one. “I was able to do so much, and part of that was because I had someone in my life who picked up the slack. So when that was gone, I didn’t realize it right away, and I jumped right back into those shows: Woods, K2, Bat Boy. And it was tough. I want to slow down a little bit,” he says, though it’s doubtful that this means his forthcoming shows will forego their customary lightning pace for leisurely philosophical forays.
At the moment, Nickerson is working with Ignite! — his first-ever production with the community theater troupe — on Little Shop of Horrors. “I said, ‘If you can build those puppets, go for it.’” Now that the theater has a dedicated facility and is no longer nomadic, Nickerson hopes that their branching out to include musicals will “bring in another audience that will help the theater thrive.” Further on, Nickerson will experience a homecoming of sorts when, after two years of self-exile, he returns to the Civic next spring to direct Gypsy. “I’m totally known for big production musicals,” he says, and he aims not to disappoint any audience members who are equally looking forward to his return. “My whole goal is that they take away something. Nothing’s worse than leaving a production feeling like you’ve just spent two hours of your life that you won’t get back.” n

SPOKANE IS READING
There are still about 150 days until the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, so you might need to get your swords-and-knights fix elsewhere. Though the jousting on Green Bluff may not be as bloody and vindictive as that on Westeros, winter is coming, and sometimes you have to do what you have to do OCT. 5-6 to make it ’til spring. Actors, minstrels, storytellers and nobles have headed for the hills of Green Bluff, ready to welcome us non-artisan peasants with activities like jousting, dancing and that crazy new game the Europeans call bocce ball. So break out that bodice and live your historically romantic fantasies. Men, spruce up those jerkins. Bring the kids (scouts in uniform get in for free) and enjoy the joust.

Author Maria Semple, whose credits include writing for Arrested Development and Saturday Night Live, injected her newest book Where’d You Go, Bernadette with wit that requires Seattleites to not take themselves too seriously. Just as Semple did, the story’s protagonist, Bernadette, moved OCT. 10 from L.A. to Seattle and found much to loathe. Haphazard five-way intersections, Keens, snobby Queen Anne housewives and compulsory small talk about the possibility of rain all plague the neurotic ex-architect who lives with her Microsoft husband and gifted daughter. Spokane is Reading presents two opportunities to meet the author, who will read from Bernadette and field questions. The events are free, but seating is first-come, first-served.

THE ACT OF KILLING
In 1965, after a failed coup attempt in Indonesia spurred a military crackdown against suspected communists, low-level gangsters became a feared squad of executioners. Now middle-aged (and older), they happily reminisce about the killings with a documentary filmmaker. At his invitation, they re-enact scenes of violence in the styles of their favorite film genres, until memory bleeds into fiction and becomes too real. Werner Herzog and Errol Morris both liked early versions of the documentary enough to sign on as executive producers; it’s won a ridiculously long list of awards and critics have been almost unanimously awed. But everyone also agrees it’s a raw and difficult film — watch it in the theater, with other people who will want to talk about it afterward. (LW) Magic Lantern Theatre, $7, 7 pm

Before Jersey Shore flushed the state of New Jersey’s barely-hangin’-on-reputation down the toilet, Bon Jovi was its No. 1 advocate. (OK, Bruce Springsteen was there, too.) After releasing the seminal New Jersey — which included the chart-toppers “Lay Your Hands On Me” and “Bad Medicine” — back in 1988, OCT. 6 the hair-metal band, with the exception of a few breaks in the ’90s, hasn’t stopped since.

This Spokanite long ago left this side of the state, but every once in a while he’ll hop on over to remind us why he’s still one of the most significant literary figures ever to emerge from our region. Sherman Alexie has been riding high off the success of The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian for a while now, making him perhaps the premier Native American writer at this moment in time. He’s coming to town with his most recent book, OCT. 9 Blasphemy, in tow. The new collection of short stories features 15 tales fans have come to love, with another 15 brand-new pieces featuring his experiences from a youth spent on an Indian reservation, and more of the humor and wry observations that have made him a mega-famous writer. He’ll read from the book, probably make you laugh and then sign your copy. (MB) Auntie’s Bookstore, 7 pm
In the weeks leading up to Halloween, get chills up and down your spine during the Spooky Spokane walking tours, which feature some unusual and surprising tales regarding the Lilac City’s scarier, lesser-known history. Even for those who scoff at the idea of ghosts, the guided tours OCT. 10-11, through downtown Spokane reveal a darker 17-18 AND past in some of the city’s most recognizable 24-25 historic places. Sure, some of these tales are long-surviving urban legends, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less fascinating or entertaining. The 90-minute tours take place after dark, for obvious reasons, and start at the historic, Art Deco Fox Theater, which apparently has been known to host a ghostly spirit or two.

space, minimal artwork. But the building hasn’t been occupied in 10 years. Last week, Caleb made the leap and quit his job as a sound technician. He and his wife are now official business owners of a place that won’t be open until November. The vision: to cultivate the local music scene,
help it evolve, make sure young people can get involved. “It’s a no-brainer for us to create an all-ages venue,” Caleb explains. “We both grew up going to shows, and we want the next generation of Spokane to be able to experience that too.” This will not be just another place hipsters go to hang
out and drink Pabst Blue Ribbon. While there will be alcohol (only wine and beer), the venue will not focus on the beverages — it’s about the music. That’s why everything will be set up with musicians in mind. From the state-of-the-art sound system to the built-in merchandise booth, the pair is
going off of what they expect of a venue. As touring performers, both as solo acts and with their band Cathedral Pearls (currently on hiatus in lieu of the Bartlett), they’ve catalogued a wish list of what they require. “It’s important the music sounds good,” Karli says. “We’re really catering to the sound.” They’ve had this dream — to have a venue of their own — even before they got married three years ago. After waxing poetic to enough friends and family about it, they were encouraged to start an Indiegogo account, which raised $21,000 to throw at the idea. But the toughness of the industry isn’t lost on them. They’ve watched as numerous live music clubs shut down in this town. “We expected this thing to be impossible,” Caleb says. “We looked at eight or nine different buildings and found the process discouraging. We weren’t sure we’d find something.” But then their friend Dan Spalding stepped in. The wellknown local artist had just bought a property and thought it would make a great space for live music. The couple agreed. While the neighborhood doesn’t cater to the country club set, with nYne next door and Mootsy’s and Jones Radiator, among others, coloring in the Sprague Avenue blocks, the Ingersolls believe it will work well for their operation. But how will they succeed where countless others have failed? The plan is to open the front part of the space every day at noon, sell coffee and choice nib-
bles during the day, then turn into a bar at night. The back area, with the stage, will host four or so acts a month along with a weekly open mic. “From touring around, we’ve seen that having a separate part is huge,” Karli concludes. “Dual income with a separate café allows us to make money, as the shows won’t.” Cover charges will be a bit more substantial than the usual $3 to $5 range you might find at a dive bar. They see the 200-capacity space as a stepping stone to the Knitting Factory. The goal is to bring in more national acts with local openers. “We want this to be a higher quality experience,” Karli says. “There won’t be that many shows happening every month, so we want this to be more of the ‘fine dining’ venue of the music scene.” There’s already been a setback. The soft opening, scheduled for Oct. 6 and featuring Pickwick, has been moved next door to nYne, but the Ingersolls aren’t deterred. They’ve booked multiple shows, including Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside and Shelby Earl, for the end of the year. They’re charging ahead. “We care about this scene,” Karli says. “We come into this business with a musician’s perspective. We’re almost there.” n firstname.lastname@example.org

Even better is the fact the Avetts’ latest disc Magpie and the Dandelion (let’s be honest, there could not be a more girly name for an album) comes out earlier the week they perform, meaning Spokane will be one of the first places to hear all of the new music live.

PANEL OF POET LAUREATES
For someone who pens lyric and rhymes, perhaps the utmost career achievement is being named a poet laureate; meaning he or she has been appointed by a government or institutional body as its official poet.

Spokane is currently in the market for one, and the person who takes that title will be OCT. 23 revealed sometime this fall.

They’ll be joined by Spokane’s to-beannounced, first-ever poet laureate. The panel discussion centers on answering the question of what role poetry plays in modern life.

Thankfully, because Lewis originally hails from Spokane, the act never fails to stop here while on tour. For them, it really is giving back to the bedrock fans, the ones who always believed. As The Heist — much of which was performed at last year’s smaller-venued Spokane show — has been out for a year now, it will be interesting to see if the duo pulls out new material for this tour. Either way, fans will be thrilled by their presence. (LJ) Spokane Arena, $32.50-$45, 8 pm

“Yeah, this is about a thousand times better than it was when we started,” Dan McGee says. McGee and Cutler are board members, along with David Freiberger, of Spokane Create!, housed a few blocks off East Sprague Avenue in a low-profile building that trembles when trains rumble by on the neighboring tracks. Imagine a high-tech nerd clubhouse — then forget the glassy surfaces, rounded corners and high ceilings of an Apple Store. Forget The Matrix. Here, between these paneled woodgrain walls — “the beautiful wood grain,” McGee jokes — aesthetics

matter less than potential. Here, everything is seen for what it could become: A boxy old printer becomes a treasure chest of motors and parts. A siren sitting atop a filing cabinet is a challenge to come up with a good use for it. In the next room, members are calibrating a 3D printer made of 3D-printed parts. “One of the things we always love is building things that build other things,” McGee says. Each Wednesday evening, members stop by to work on their own projects and see what other guys are working on — and so far it is pretty much guys, though wives and girlfriends often tag along. The word “play” gets used
a lot. Don’t be intimidated by enthusiastic conversations about Arduinos and Raspberry Pi, CNC mills and step motors. These are nerds who want to teach you to nerd out with them. “We really want to encourage people to just try to do stuff,” Cutler says. “A lot of times people are so afraid to fail. And we want to give them skills on how to troubleshoot, so they can try to fix something on their own, and we want to encourage people to work together.” The idea for a space like this had been simmering online for some time when the group first got together the last weekend of January. Other cities have thriv-
ing community workshops — often called hackerspaces or makerspaces — grounded in the value of actual, physical places where people can collaborate and create actual, physical things. Most are tech-focused, but some have branched out into other types of making things, like sewing, cooking and more traditional art. A central idea is peer learning, which can mean classes and lectures or something much less formal. In Spokane, the word spread online through Reddit and Craigslist. The group started meeting regularly, but it was an exciting day in April when the owner of Banner Fuel said they were wel-

come to set up shop in the building that hadn’t been used recently for anything but storage. Once a month, the group holds a meeting for any business and some type of learning activity, and Wednesdays are always open for whatever projects people have in mind. A recent project made a front door lock that members can access through wireless to get into the building whenever they want. Other projects are more about seeing what’s possible. Alan Chatham, who’s been promoting interactive art through events like Art Up Weekend and his organization Laboratory, is a bridge between the group’s more technical side and Spokane’s artistic community. Right now, Cutler says, someone who wants to learn how to machine something or design a circuit board pretty much has to sign up for a college class. The
hope is to get more tools and “cool stuff,” along with building a community of members who bring in new skills. “If we can get all these people with different backgrounds together, we can really learn from each other,” Cutler says. Anytime someone has knowledge others don’t becomes an opportunity for sharing. It’s a frustration McGee says he’s shared with others in the group, that learning new things isn’t a priority once you leave college. “It’s like you’re expected to just move on, and not to learn anymore,” he says. “And that’s one thing I think is very different about this group of people, that everybody has a real hunger for knowledge and really wants to keep pushing themselves.” n Find out more at spokanecreate.org.

Creating scenes of nature via costumes, puppetry, lighting, custom-made props and music, Momix, a Connecticut-based dance company, attacks the senses by making the viewer wonder, “How in the heck did they manage that?” The multimedia experience will be held at the Fox and promises viewers raw and inventive dance at its best, exploring the seasons and senses through tantaNOV. 6 lizing imagery and thought-provoking expression. The company features Spokane native Amanda Hulen, making her first appearance in her hometown since becoming a professional dancer. (ER) Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, $28-$38, 7:30 pm

MAC ART AUCTION
This NBA Hall of Famer and Spokane native didn’t say much when he was out on the court with the Utah Jazz, setting NBA career records for both assists and steals. He didn’t talk to reporters all that often, and even now, back living in Spokane, he keeps NOV. 9 a low profile. But this fall, Stockton releases his autobiography, appropriately titled Assisted, and finally opens up and tells the story of a life that began in Spokane’s Logan neighborhood and took him through Gonzaga and into the annals of basketball history. At this event, he’ll be on hand to sign his book just a few weeks after its release. If you ever wondered what was going through Stockton’s mind when he was slinging half-court passes to Karl Malone all of those years, here’s your chance to learn. Speaking of Malone, he penned the book’s foreword. (MB) Auntie’s Bookstore, 2 pm
Our local arts community has certainly taken a few big blows this year, with organizations in just about every form of artistic expression struggling to maintain past levels of funding from both public and private sources. Those circumstances make events like the Northwest Museum of Arts NOV. 9 & Culture’s annual gala and juried art auction ever more important to continue preserving the arts community. This annual event is fancy — it’s blacktie optional and takes place at the swanky Davenport Hotel. All work up for auction this year is by Inland Northwest-based artists, and each piece was personally selected by Chris Bruce, director of the WSU Museum of Art. Part of the proceeds from the art sale benefit the MAC’s mission. (CS) Davenport Hotel, $100/person, 5 pm

LAYERED HISTORY: REDRAWN MEMORY
Rose Bond’s innovative animations explore “the notion that buildings hold accretions of memory; how the brain seems to process multiple projections; and comments upon the archive and narratives that reshape them.” Her work has been described as “large scale architectural animation” and holds NOV. 12a dreamlike, unFEB. 7 canny edge. But because the images she reveals are so familiar and the renderings so vivid, the viewer can’t help but feel as if they have been to these places before, and this resultant sense of return is somewhat comforting and tangible.

AN EVENING WITH JUDY CARMICHAEL
= Open Daily +
If you’re a public radio listener, Judy Carmichael needs little or no introduction. In addition to 20 years of hosting her own show, Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired, she’s a frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion and has received her fair share of mentions NOV. 11 on NPR’s Morning Edition. Count Basie — who for all his talent was never awarded with his own NPR show — also knew who Carmichael was. Out of respect for her skill, he nicknamed her “Stride,” pretty much acknowledging her as an embodiment of an entire jazz style. On this evening, she’ll perform selections from her new album Come and Get It, which boasts inspiration from musicians as diverse as Fats Waller and Peggy Lee.

“It got pretty scary here for a couple of days. The day after we started bombing, Saddam began launching scuds. The air raid sirens sound, everyone puts on their gas mask and then goes to the scud bunkers. It was pretty scary the first couple of times, but it started getting old. Especially when we shot them all down.” That’s from a letter a friend of mine wrote on NOV. 15March 23, 2003, and posted onNOV. 16 line earlier this year to mark 10 years since that date. Letters Home, performed by the traveling Griffin Theatre Company, is a play composed of similar letters from troops during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. With minimal set design, the show presents soldiers’ experiences of the uncertainty and comradeship of war, in their own words. (LW) Jones Theatre at Washington State University, 7:30 pm, $9-$18
The sinewy, abstract installations by New York City artist Gelah Penn fall somewhere between sketch and sculpture. The site-specific works don’t hang politely on walls or ignore them completely — they take over, as if they grew organically on the gallery walls like alien plants, both utterly beautiful and unsettling. Penn, who has described what she constructs as a “kind of NOV. 13meaty ephemerality,” is the visiting NOV. 14 artist of this year’s Visiting Artist Lecture Series. Penn is influenced by film noir and fiction; you know those uneasy sound effects they use in movies at tense moments? Looking at her works can feel sort of like that, in the most fascinating way possible.

MOSCOW BALLET’S GREAT RUSSIAN NUTCRACKER
Each year a touring ballet company from some larger metropolitan area stops in the Inland Northwest to perform the traditional and beloved story of The Nutcracker in the weeks leading up to the holiday. And this year, Nutcracker fans are in for a treat. The Moscow Ballet — as in the capital of Russia — is set to perform NOV. 13the classic holiday ballet for two NOV. 14 nights at the Bing. Though the performance may be a little early in the season for some, it’s unknown whether or when Spokane will get another opportunity like this, as the award-winning Russian company usually sticks to bigger cities on its annual North American tour. It’s bound to be an experience unlike any other Nutcracker performance Spokane has seen. (CS) Bing Crosby Theater, $30-$177, 7:30 pm
NINE INCH NAILS, EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY
Trent Reznor, the multitalented singer, writer, instrumentalist and composer behind rock outfit Nine Inch Nails, has been busy in the past five years. Since indicating that NIN was no more, he started a music project with his wife, wrote movie scores, won an Oscar and a Grammy and performed at summer festivals. The ever-evolving artist delivered fans NOV. 19 a shocking surprise by releasing an eighth NIN album, Hesitation Marks, in August and announced a massive tour that stops in Spokane. A night of Reznor’s haunting industrial rock is paired with opening act Explosion in the Sky’s self-described “cathartic mini-symphonies.” (BN) Spokane Arena, $29.50-$69.50, 7:30 pm

GREEN DAY’S AMERICAN IDIOT
SPOKANE STRING QUARTET
Billie Joe Armstrong and the men of Green Day wrote the rock opera American Idiot circa 2004, inspired — or pissed off — by the political climate of the Bush era. In 2008, they began a collaboration with Tony Award-winning director Michael Mayer to bring Saint Jimmy and Whatsername to life in a musical adaptation. The punk-rock characters have kicked traditional Broadway NOV. 22characters off the stage with their NOV. 23 leather studded boots, taking hundreds of audiences on an emotionally exhausting ride that still leaves them with enough energy for a standing ovation. The tale follows three disaffected suburban youth who flee to the city and find love, addiction, war and apathy. (BN) INB Performing Arts Center, $30-$75, 8 pm
The string quartet is arguably the best formation of classical instrument ensembles ever created. It contains the proper amount of brilliant voices — the rafter-seizing of the first violin, the meaty middle of the second violin and viola and the steady rudder of the cello. Back for their 35th season, the Spokane String Quartet employs this perfect formation to its highest capabilities, showing off the deeper cuts of the NOV. 24 quartet repertoire: John Pickard’s “String Quartet No. 5” and Sir Edward Elgar’s “Quartet in E Minor, Op. 83.” Pay no attention to the boring sound of the piece’s titles; they reflect nothing of the magic that will happen on stage when performed.

THE CHRISTMAS SCHOONER
What’s Christmas time without a elegantly adorned, aromatic evergreen tree to brighten the long winter nights? This holiday season, the Spokane Civic Theatre attempts to answer this question through its performance of the holidaythemed musical A Christmas Schooner. The story, based on real historic events, tells NOV. 22the tale of a 19th century schooner DEC. 22 on the Great Lakes whose captain risks his life to transport fir trees across the frigid winter waters from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula to Chicago. There, the captain sold the trees mostly to the city’s German immigrants, who celebrated the long-practiced holiday tradition of decorating them inside their homes. The award-winning musical ran for 12 consecutive seasons in Chicago after its original debut in 1996. (CS) Spokane Civic Theatre, $22-$30, Thu-Sat at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2 pm

The gods of rock and roll have smiled upon Spokane and — perhaps thanks in part to a Hail Mary request by the Inlander earlier this year — Pearl Jam is coming to Spokane for the first time in 20 years. You probably think Pearl Jam is a ’90s band about which we should care little. Wrong. They’re one of the biggest arena rock acts left in the country, and the fall tour that drops them off at the Spokane Arena is almost totally sold out in every city where it stops. Their new album is called Lightning Bolt. It comes NOV. 30 out on Oct. 14, and from the few tracks we’ve got our ears on, it’s a return to the aggressive, in-your-grill Pearl Jam of the Vitalogy era. This is going to be a hell of a show. (MB) Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena, $69.50, 7:30 pm

not unusual for them to do it in places that might serve a beer or two. They’re talking about how it’s a good time to be a writer in Spokane. Local authors are releasing excellent books. Poetry readings have popped up all over
THE CREATIVE WRITING PROGRAM AT EWU IS THE ENGINE OF SPOKANE’S THRIVING LITERARY SCENE BY MIKE BOOKEY town. Young people are getting excited about literature and writing. And whether these four men and one woman will admit it or not, they all have something to do with this as part of the creative writing Master of Fine Arts
program at Eastern Washington University — which has served as an engine of sorts, powering the literary surge you’ll find in the city and beyond. “The writing scene is vigorous in Spokane. And the artistic scene is really strong in this town,
and it really wasn’t 10 years ago,” says Sam Ligon, a novelist and EWU associate professor in the program who also serves as the editor of Willow Springs, the university’s literary magazine. “But we’re not the whole scene,” says Ligon after a pause.
Next to him, the poet Christopher Howell, an EWU professor and former Washington Book Award winner, chimes in. “It’s a natural attitude of the community, which is a creative and integrated community. No one is saying, ‘Hey, we need to make an impact,’” says Howell. But at the head of the table, John Keeble, nursing a pint of beer, knows how much the literary landscape has changed in Spokane since the advent of EWU’s creative writing program, the Inland Northwest Center for Writers. He’s now semi-retired, serving as the program’s professor emeritus as he prepares for the release this fall of his latest novel, The Shadows of Owls, but in the early 1970s he arrived at EWU from Rhode Island to find hardly a writer in sight. “There were no readings in Spokane. None. It’s hard to believe everything there is going on now,” says Keeble. Around the table, everyone nods. Across the table from Ligon, Keeble and Howell sits Natalie Kusz, a widely published memoirist who heads up the program, and Shawn Vestal, a SpokesmanReview columnist who studied under those around the table when he got his MFA about five years ago. This year he released his debut collection of short fiction, Godforsaken Idaho, which received positive reviews from regional and national publications. The two-year MFA program, conducted out of EWU’s Spokane branch, features about 50 students ranging in age from 22 to 58. Very few are from the region, Ligon notes. “About 90 percent of the students are from elsewhere in the country — all over the country.
That’s good for Spokane,” says Ligon. The program’s most visible public element is its Get Lit! literary festival, bringing big names to town each spring for a week of events including workshops, lectures and something called Pie and Whiskey — which is exactly what it sounds like — served with a chaser of readings from excellent wordsmiths. But the MFA students are out in the city beyond that festival — they enroll in internships with local organizations, and teach at prisons, nursing homes and schools through the Writers in the Community program. Kusz’s own child experienced one of the elementary school poetry sessions, giving her an inside perspective on what her own program is doing in the community. “At that age, the more physical-type kids are the safe people. When kids read their poetry in front of the class and realize it’s something they’re good at, that is powerful,” she says. With all this outreach, combined with a staff that includes award-winning novelist Gregory Spatz, creative nonfiction writer Rachel Toor and poet Jonathan Johnson, the school’s literary impact is hard to ignore. Add the graduates and local writers who serve as guest teachers, including Shann Ray and others, and that impact is even more discernible. Vestal has another way of measuring the boom in the Spokane literary scene. He just looks up at his bookshelf. “I decided that I should put all the books by people I know on one shelf. By the time I got the poetry and the short stories and the chapbooks, the books from Spokane people wouldn’t fit on that shelf,” he says. n

Perhaps you remember Loretta Swit from the 1980s television version of one of the greatest Christmas stories ever — about a family full of badass little hoodlums who end up being cast in the annual Christmas Pageant. (Mary had a dirty face! And the shepherds said swear words!)

Loads of chili come to Colville for its first international chili cook-off BY JO MILLER
loves. Anchovies. Chocolate. Coca-Cola. Marmite. You might not think of those as normal chili ingredients, but when the competition is on, some cooks pull those out as secret weapons. But no cooks at a chili cook-off will ever say exactly what they’re putting in their chili to give the flavor depth, smooth over acidic tastes or do whatever they need to do in hopes of crafting a winning recipe. “There’s really an art to making chili,” says Jo Ann Bender, who is helping put on the first Northwest International Chili Cook-Off in Colville on Saturday. Cooks from Canada and the Northwest are set to compete in a cook-off aimed to raise funds for Colville Rotary Club charities and serve as a qualifying event for the Chili Appreciation Society International’s (CASI) annual chili cook-off championship in Terlingua, Texas. The chili will be plentiful and the varieties vast: German white chili, lentil chili, Hawaiian chili, buffalo chili (yes, with real buffalo), vegetarian chili and barbeque chili are some of the flavors cooks will present, says Bud Budinger, chairman of the cook-off. “Everyone’s got their own idea of what constitutes chili, and they don’t agree,” he says.
Double-blind judging determines the winning chilis, and Lynne Brokaw, the regional CASI referee who has judged chili since 1984, will oversee the panel of judges. As far as flavors go, Brokaw says she’s expecting anything. Ingredients can be as individual as the chefs, she says, but what makes a good chili is what it does to judges’ taste buds. “It has to smell like chili. It has to look like chill. It has to taste like chili — not barbeque sauce, not spaghetti,” Brokaw says. “It should have a little bit of bite, both front and back, [and] should be a little hot when it hits your mouth. Then when you swallow it, there has to be a little bit of an afterglow.” Cook-off attendees will be able to go around and taste spoonfuls of chili from the cooks all afternoon. But beyond chili, there will be vendors selling other food, old-time honky-tonk music, clog dancers, an equestrian drill team and aptly named Blazing Saddles bike ride.

Fresh From the Web Northwest Farm Fresh brings local produce at the click of a mouse BY JO MILLER
rowsing stand after stand stacked with carrots, squash, berries and baked goods is the norm when you think of shopping at a farmers market. But a new dimension of clicking and dragging your produce to a virtual shopping basket has become an option as online farmers markets continue to emerge. “It is a new thing, but it’s growing like gangbusters,” says Shelly Stevens, founder of Northwest Farm Fresh, a local online farmers market. Stevens, who helped found the Chewelah Farmers Market in 2008, used the relationships she developed with local farmers and customers to start up an online farmers market called the Chewelah Valley Fresh Market in early 2012. Since, Stevens has expanded her online market and changed the name to Northwest Farm Fresh. She added a drop-off location last year in Colville, and a third drop-off location began in Spokane on Sept. 18 at Lasagna’s-On-Ya.

Adding Spokane was the next logical step in growth for Northwest Farm Fresh, Stevens says. With a larger urban and suburban population, presumably fewer Spokanites are growing their own food, whereas Stevens County is largely a farming county. “By reaching into that denser population in Spokane that do not have that lifestyle, I think ultimately it’ll be super-beneficial for these small farmers to be marketing their products there,” she says. Here’s how the market works: Customers register online for free and have from Wednesday through Monday each week to shop — choosing produce, meats and breads from approximately 38 farmers as far north as Orient and as far south as Reardan. Tuesday is pickup day from 3-6 pm. You choose if you want to pick up in Chewelah, Colville or Spokane, and you pay for the order in person. The online market helps solve the problem for folks who can’t make it to regular farmers markets because of their schedule but want to buy local, Stevens says. Farmers also benefit from the larger customer base and exposure. The website provides information about each farmer, such as growing practices and how animals are raised. “Most small farmers don’t have the savvy to market themselves online, so this fills that niche for them,” Stevens says.

The Wolverine takes a whole new approach to crime this time around.
In one of a very impressive series of twists (this is the only one I’ll give away), a desperate Keller — positive that Alex has his daughter hidden away somewhere — takes Alex himself and hides him away somewhere, ready to inflict all sorts of barbarous punishment on him if he doesn’t talk. Suffice it to say he doesn’t, and the film, under the tense direction of Denis Villeneuve (Incendies), bursts into some sections of brutal violence (let’s hear it for the make-up people in those spots where we see the aftermath). But this isn’t exactly a vigilante film. It’s more of a cat-and-mouse game in which the players are both good guys trying to prove who the bad guy is, albeit working in totally different manners. It features a slightly overthe-top performance from the grieving, fiery Jackman, vinced that Keller is getting in the way of his investigaand a strangely (and well done) underplayed one from tion. In the film’s early stages, it’s pretty obvious who’s Gyllenhaal, whose character has a nicely subtle air of responsible for the kidnapping. It’s that creepy guy Alex mystery around him, and whose feelings are Jones (Paul Dano), the fellow with the IQ sometimes revealed through his constant of a 10-year-old who was sitting in his RV PRISONERS display of nervous blinking tics. It’s a film filled right outside the house where the girls Rated R with everyday normal people who are visibly disappeared, and who is arrested. But hold Directed by Denis Villeneuve on: There’s no proof, and without proof, Starring Hugh Jackman, Jake upset, playing out a story that’s shocking and a suspect can only be held for questioning Gyllenhaal, Terrence Howard, nerve-racking, but you can’t take your eyes away from it as that negative energy ebbs and for a certain amount of time. After all, this Paul Dano flows. lost soul could have just been parked there All of this intensity is pushed along by to take a brief nap. There are certainly no a grim musical score that’s often made up only of low signs of any struggle inside the RV, and Alex has no renotes, held out for long stretches. Its title is perfect, cord. Although there is a moment — when Keller, against because in the end, it’s very clear that every character is the detective’s warnings, starts following Alex as Alex is a prisoner of his or her own doing.

The kidnapping film is played out, but Prisoners gives the genre a new twist BY ED SYMKUS
ou know the story: A loved one is nabbed, the cops don’t know what they’re doing (or aren’t involved), a relative of the victim goes after the perpetrator(s). Think Taken, Frantic, Ransom, Commando, The Marine. The list could go on, but the well-worn premise goes in all sorts of new directions in Prisoners. This is, in Hollywood terms, a two-hander — a story with two protagonists, both equally involved in solving the crime and setting things straight. Hugh Jackman is Keller Dover, a happy family man whose young daughter, along with a friend’s daughter, vanish after going out to play during a Thanksgiving dinner. Jake Gyllenhaal is Detective Loki, the loner cop with a record of solving every case he’s been given, who’s assigned this one. From their first meeting, these two are at odds. Keller thinks that the detective isn’t working fast enough and isn’t paying attention to obvious clues, while Loki is con-

OPENING FILMS AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS
Set in rural Texas sometime, presumably, in the ’70s, Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara are Bob and Ruth, young lovers star-crossed by a robbery gone wrong. Surrounded by the law in a clapboard house, the pair, along with a cohort, try to shoot their way out. Ruth wings a sheriff, but Bob takes both her gun and the blame, and ends up with a 25-year prison sentence. The kicker? Ruth is pregnant, and their mutual yearning for each other leads Bob to attempt a jailbreak, which succeeds — up to a point. At Magic Lantern (MS) Rated R
BATTLE OF THE YEAR
A down-and-out star basketball coach, Jason Blake, is propositioned by an old friend to train American dancers under the assumption that a great coach can turn any group of individuals into a team. Although knowing seemingly nothing about dancing, but a sure heck of a lot about coaching, Blake, played by the gorgeous Josh Holloway, attempts to turn his group of ragamuffin (but attractive!) dancers into championship winners. The stakes are high, the dramatic music loud, as Blake’s team might be the one to win it all, although, that hasn’t been done by a U.S. team in 15 years. (ER) PG-13
The kidnapping-revenge genre gets a refreshing makeover when a child goes missing, Dad gets mad, and the cops don’t know what to do. It stars Hugh
Jackman (the dad) and Jake Gyllenhaal (the detective). This goes places that Taken and Frantic never thought of going. A real nail-biter that’s violent and unpredictable. (ES) Rated R
THANKS FOR SHARING
Thanks for Sharing tells the story of three friends all battling with the same demon: sex addiction. Adam, played by Mark Ruffalo, finds himself falling in love with a beautiful, successful Phoebe (Gwyneth Paltrow) and in doing so once again comes face to face with the same sexual demons he thought he had defeated. Meanwhile, his compatriots, Mike, portrayed by Tim Robbins, finds security in smothering his family in order to control himself, while Neil (Josh Gad) is just coming to terms with his addiction, and is already struggling on the rocky road to recovery.

MUMIA: A LONG DISTANCE REVOLUTIONARY
This documentary follows Mumia AbuJamal, an African American convicted of murdering a policeman in 1981, at the height of his political activism. Spending the majority of his life in prison, living under the death row sign, Abu-Jamal has stirred intense debate with his continued outspokenness. Before his arrest, he was a thought-provoking journalist and revolutionary. After his arrest, he continues his history of speaking out from behind bars. At Magic Lantern (ER) Unrated
NOW PLAYING 2 GUNS
Cruising around in a vintage Dodge Challenger, the DEA’s Bobby (Denzel Washington) and Navy investigator Stig (Mark Wahlberg) are both working undercover but make for such convincing bad-asses that they even have each other fooled. Indeed, the hook here is that, having been assigned by their respective agencies to infiltrate a crime syndicate, each assumes that the other is a criminal. It’s only once they’ve robbed a bank together (in order to secure evidence, naturally) that they realize each other’s actual allegiances. (CW) Rated R
Keri Russell stars as an American woman so obsessed with the works, life and everything else of Jane Austen that she decides to blow most of her savings to go to a resort in England called Austenland.

Her marriage to a wealthy husband (Alec Baldwin) fell apart after he lost all their money in a Wall Street scam, forcing Jasmine to move to San Francisco to live with her sister, Ginger, a grocery store clerk. To Jasmine, it seems like there’s not much left in her life to look forward to, as she struggles to cope with her downfall from a life of luxury to one where she’s forced to decide whether she should become a dental receptionist or a nurse.

FINEST AMERICAN DRAMA SO FAR THIS YEAR.
Brie Larson gives a star-making performance.” –David Edelstein, NEW YORK MAGAZINE
Ethan Hawke gave us an amazing performance in the remarkable Before Midnight earlier this year, so it’s OK for him to take some time to do something, well, less remarkable. Here, Hawke plays Brent Magna, who used to be a professional race car driver, which comes in handy when his wife is kidnapped by some jerk and he has to steal some other chick’s car (that chick is a post-Bieber Selena Gomez; the car is a Shelby Mustang) and drive really fast to rescue said wife.

IN A WORLD...
Lake Bell wrote, directed and stars in this big-hearted comedy that goes behind the scenes of the voiceover industry — in other words, the dude who says “In a world..” at the beginning of those action movie previews. As Carol, Bell gives us a luckless daughter of a voiceover master who is trying to forge her own career in the industry while also dealing with her nutso family. It’s quirky and full of laughs, but also a sign that Bell is an indie director to keep an eye on. At Magic Lantern (MB) Rated R.

Sing the Greys Frightened Rabbit rolls a wee bit of Scottish melancholy in on a tour bus BY LAURA JOHNSON
ither he’s lying, or Andy Monaghan really does like wheeling around the world on a tour bus. This is a helpful attribute, as that’s what his band Frightened Rabbit has been doing for the past year. Last week during a phone interview, Monaghan — who plays guitar, bass and keyboards for the indie rock band — was on a bus, cruising out of Atlanta where they opened for melancholic rock act The National. Since January, there’s only been one week that Frightened Rabbit got to go home to Scotland to rest. Other than that, it’s been a ceaseless barrage of promoting the new album Pedestrian Verse. “Once you’ve been on the road for a while, you get into the swing of things,” Monaghan admits. In order not to go totally bananas being somewhere new every night, always living in hotels, Monaghan makes it a priority to find out a little bit about the culture of the city where the band is playing. “It’s important to hit up a good taco place or bowling place or art gallery,” Monaghan says. “Anything that says something about the town.” In a way, Monaghan has always just been along for the ride. A decade ago, Scott Hutchison convinced his brother Grant to play drums for a project he was working on. At that point, the hottest group in Scotland was Franz Ferdinand. While there were plenty of emulators, a backlash against the Glasgow scene’s eclectic pop movement also emerged. Along with the likes of We Were Promised Jetpacks and The Twilight Sad, Frightened Rabbit led the charge. With a sound fusing the sadness of singer-
songwriter Damien Rice with Snow Patrol if they went more folk, Scott wrote lyrics that read like diary entries, letting music be the place he let go of his emotions. The frontman acted as the band’s lead songwriter until Pedestrian Verse. “We did that to just mix it up a bit,” Monaghan explained. “There’s a lot of pressure on Scott to come up with stuff, and dividing up the task takes a wee bit of the pressure off of him. It makes everyone feel a part of the band.” The new album was written over the course of three years, with so much music composed that an EP with three new songs, Late March, Death March, was released this month to accommodate the spillover. But 2008 was the defining year for the band, as Monaghan, already a member of the group Piano Bar Fight, was asked to join over more than a few pints. “Scott got really drunk one night and asked me to be a part of the band,” Monaghan recalls. “The next morning I wouldn’t let him go back on his word.” The album Frightened Rabbit had just completed, The Midnight Organ Fight, had too many guitar parts recorded, so the band needed to add another guitarist for the tour. Success came gradually. They opened for Death Cab for Cutie in the UK while the album received accolades from Pitchfork and A.V. Club. Two years later, Atlantic Records called. “When I first joined the band, my dad was skeptical of what I was doing,” Monaghan recalled. “But the last time we played in Glasgow, he was there and he was so proud.” ...continued on next page

MUSIC | INDIE ROCK “SING THE GREYS,” CONTINUED... Friends were a different matter; they were on board since the beginning. “Everyone is very supportive — the scene in Glasgow, all the bands are in it together,” Monaghan says. “My friends live through me. They want to know all the stories from the road.” For most Americans, it’s a challenge to understand what someone from Scotland is saying — subtitles would be helpful, as the brogue is thick. Many English acts sound American when they sing, but Scots can’t seem to kick the accent (check out the recent Frightened Rabbit single, “The Woodpile,” for an example). So after traveling around this country, is there anything Monaghan thinks Americans do well? “Coleslaw and pizza — my mind just directly went to food,” he confirms. “Also, Game of Thrones. We’ve watched every single
episode while on tour.” Rolling into Spokane next Thursday for a show, perhaps the band will take in the MAC’s latest installation or munch on tacos at Atilano’s beforehand. Either way, a couple of things will go down onstage: Augustines, who recently changed their name from We Are Augustines and moved from Brooklyn to Seattle — “they’re such beautiful men,” says Monaghan — will open and Frightened Rabbit will surprise. “We’ve been mixing it up every night,” he says. “Who knows what will happen? n email@example.com Frightened Rabbit feat.

om Chavez directs a stern look at a young kid who has just plopped into a seat on the patio, casually puffing on a cigarette. “What are you doing? How old are you?” he asks. The kid looks like he’s been caught stealing. “Eighteen,” the kid says. “How long you been smoking?” “Since I was, like, 15? I can show you my ID.” Chavez scoffs and shakes his head. “I don’t care about your ID, it’s that habit, man,” he says. “You gotta stop smoking, it’ll kill ya.” It’s the kind of thing that Chavez — a 50-something Navy retiree most everyone calls “TC” — has become known for in the past three years as the owner of the Hop!, an all-ages music venue just north of the Monroe Street Bridge. The club, usually open seven days a week, is one of the only places in Spokane to host shows for the under-21 set. Under the eyes of Chavez and his sons, the Hop! has never been known for violence. So Chavez was shocked when he got a late night phone call on Sunday, Sept. 8, that someone had been shot and killed in the parking lot behind his venue. Spokane police say it was the first time officers had needed to respond to an incident at the venue. “We pretty much went from zero — on the violence scale — we went from zero to 10 in five seconds,” he says. The Hop! was scheduled to host an afterparty that night for the fans of San Francisco rapper Messy Marv, slated to perform at nearby Lincoln Center. The rapper was never supposed to appear at the Hop!, according to Chavez — it was just an afterparty. When Messy Marv failed to show at Lincoln Center and word spread that he might be at the Hop! event, Chavez says his staff noticed the crowd seemed tense. But the Hop! was full of familiar faces — including Kalen

The Hop! is just north of the Monroe Street Bridge. Bedford, Carlos Fuentes and Julian Morrison — who had been to events there before. According to a Spokesman-Review report, Morrison exited the Hop! into the parking lot east of the venue and was met by Bedford and Fuentes and a flurry of bullets. When the smoke cleared, Morrison was dead. Spokane Police took Bedford and Fuentes into custody last Wednesday. The two face charges of first-degree murder and first-degree assault. Police issued a press release stating that “detectives believe that the shooting incident is gang related and that both the victim and the suspects are gang members.” The Hop! has long been known as a place where anyone — from Juggalos to gothic DJs — can play. But Chavez says this event has put him on edge. “It makes us more apprehensive about doing certain types of events,” he says. “I’m going to be looking at my calendar and I already know a couple I’m probably going to cancel.” “I don’t want to sound like I’m blaming any particular crowd,” he says. “I want everything to settle down a bit. I’m doing that kind of for the whole picture. I’m doing it for us and our relations with the city.” firstname.lastname@example.org

AMERICANA STEVE EARLE
PUNK THE QUEERS
ny fans of HBO’s cult series The Wire will recognize Steve Earle as Bubbles’ AA friend Walon — he also lent his talents the version of the Tom Waits song “Way Down in the Hole” in season 5’s opening credits. His stint on that show was far from the most important work in Earle’s decades-long career. His classic debut album Guitar Town put him on the map in the mid-’80s, and he enjoys a cult following among both lovers of country and rock ‘n’ roll. His voice is by no means beautiful, but with brutally honest lyrics to back up his guitar skills, his songs seep into the mind and never let go (see “CCKMP”). After battling addiction in the ’90s, Earle has emerged stronger than ever. — LAURA JOHNSON
heir name will get you. How did a band get away with using a homophobic slur as its moniker? That’s what makes them so punk rock, obviously. And with song titles like “F--- the World,” “I Hate Everything” and “I Can’t Stop Farting,” it’s clear the band is ensconced in the extreme immature side of punk; that’s what makes them so much fun. Formed in the early ’80s in New Hampshire, The Queers’ brand of Ramones-esque sound has persevered through the years, even after the death of longtime drummer Hugh O’Neill in 1999. Paired with equally ridiculous bands Teenage Bottlerocket and The Copyright at the The Center, the Spokane show will be out of control. — LAURA JOHNSON

FESTIVAL PARTY IN THE VALLEY
It makes sense that lots of exciting things are happening at this year’s Valleyfest, since 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of Spokane Valley being incorporated as its own city. Event goers can find the full map and schedule of events online for the live music, workshops and attractions at the weekend-long festival. Highlights include Friday’s “Heart of Gold” parade at 7:30 pm on the corner of Sprague and University. Saturday events include the car show, Abbey Crawford’s singing, and the hot-air balloon night glow. The Spokane Astronomical Society is bringing telescopes so visitors can take a peek at Saturn, Venus and Mercury, and the petting zoo will give everyone a fix of cute animal cuddles. There’s truly something for everyone. — BETH NOTTURNO Valleyfest • Sept. 20-22, event times vary • Free admission • Mirabeau Point Park and CenterPlace Regional Event Center • 2426 N. Discovery Pl. • Spokane Valley • valleyfest.org • 922-3299
86 INLANDER SEPTEMBER 19, 2013
Take a handful of prominent Northwest writers, add a theme — this year it’s “Pillow Talk” — then top it off with dinner and wine. This is Bedtime Stories, and the writers presenting original works this year are Jess Walter, Sharma Shields, Shawn Vestal and Washington’s poet laureate, Kathleen Flenniken. The dinner and wine part of this event is probably top-notch, but the real draw is clearly more literary than culinary. The annual literary gala has been happening for years in Seattle, and is returning for its second year in Spokane to raise money for cultural education nonprofit Humanities Washington. — LISA WAANANEN Bedtime Stories • Fri, Sept. 20 at 6 pm • $75 • Spokane Club • 1002 W. Riverside Ave. • btsspokane.eventbrite.com
MUSIC RETURN OF THE SYMPHONY
After a summer season away from the The Fox’s stage, the Spokane Symphony’s orchestra members pick up their instruments this weekend to kick off another season of mesmerizing musical moments. After some tumultuous times last season (remember the musicians’ strike?) the Symphony starts anew with its 2013-14 season, aptly titled “Hear the Heart of the City.” The first concert is part of the Classics series, called “Virtuosity Required” because it features some mind-bendingly difficult pieces of music, truly written for virtuosos like award-winning violinist Ilya Kaler, who accompanies the orchestra this weekend. — CHEY SCOTT Classics Series 1: “Virtuosity Required” • Sat, Sept. 21 at 8 pm and Sun, Sept. 22 at 3 pm • $15-$54 • Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox • 1001 W. Sprague Ave. • spokanesymphony.org • 624-1200
MUSIC CAMI BRADLEY
It feels like this season of America’s Got Talent has been going on for years on end, but maybe that’s because we’re all so flippin’ excited to see if Spokane’s own Cami Bradley is going to win this jugglers-vs.-family dance teams-vs.comedians-vs.- singers competition. Bradley has made it all the way to the finals, the results of which air on Wednesday night, so you might already know what happens. But either way, Bradley is coming home to Spokane to celebrate her run with two shows at the Bing Crosby Theater (the early one is already sold out, FYI). She’s bringing along fellow AGT contestant Taylor Williamson, who will tell some jokes to warm up the show. — MIKE BOOKEY Cami Bradley, Taylor Williamson • Sun, Sept. 22 at 8 pm (sold out) and 10:15 pm • $20 • Bing Crosby Theater • 901 W.

FILM SPIFF-Y SCREENING
Each fall, organizers of the Spokane International Film Festival host a series of screenings and post-film discussions to get people thinking critically about cinema. The first installment of the series is Pan’s Labyrinth, hosted by Brian Clayton, director of Gonzaga’s Faith and Reason Institute. Pan’s Labyrinth blurs the lines between fantasy and reality. The film’s leading character is Ofelia, a whimsical girl growing up in post-civil-war Spain. Extremely misunderstood by her new stepfather, her mother consumed by pregnancy and sickness, Ofelia becomes ensnared by her own isolation. When a mysterious faun offers to help cure her ill mother, Ofelia finds herself living a fairy tale. Dark imagery and grim circumstance follow in this Guillermo del Toro film. — EMERA RILEY SpIFF Professor Film Series: Pan’s Labyrinth • Wed, Sept. 25 at 7 pm • $7 • Bing Crosby Theater • 901 W.

Advice Goddess GOING CODE TURKEY
I broke up with a boyfriend a few years ago because I wasn’t getting what I wanted from him. I’d give him subtle cues, and when he didn’t respond in the ways I was hoping for, I blamed him for being thickheaded. I’ve ended many a relationship because of this. The dudes didn’t have a chance. I now see that we women can skip years of frustration by getting clear with our partners about what we need from them. UnderstandAMY ALKON ing this now, you’d think it would be simple for me to follow through. Yet, I’m continually surprised at how strong my “have him guess!” impulse can be. Letting a man in on my feelings actually takes a lot of courage and stretches me like nothing else. —Challenged It isn’t hard for a boyfriend to make a woman happy instead of pissed off for days. He just needs the right answer to “Hey, honey, guess what it means when I put my hair in a ponytail and walk out of the room!” A guy gets to the point where he can’t be sure whether he’s in a relationship or a really, really long game of charades. (Either way, it helps if there are occasional breaks for angry sex.) Although men and women are psychologically similar in many ways, studies by social psychologist Judith A. Hall and others find that women are more accurate in sussing out the meaning of nonverbal cues. The problem is, we humans all have a tendency to assume others’ minds work just like our own. So, you conclude that a guy is withholding and mean when he seems to ignore what you think should be obvious — that your left nostril flaring is code for “Tell me you love me right this second!” (Not to be mistaken for the flaring right nostril’s “Take out the trash or I’ll kill myself!”) To your credit, you took a hard look at yourself and admitted that you were wrong. As for why you’re having difficulty putting what you now understand into practice, Yale psychology professor Alan E. Kazdin explained on my radio show, “Knowing doesn’t control doing.” Doing actually takes doing — in your case, repeatedly pushing yourself to express your feelings, despite how uncomfortably vulnerable it makes you feel. Repeating behavior over time actually rewires the brain and, in Kazdin’s words, “locks” the new behaviors in. Eventually, healthier behavior should come more naturally to you — like recognizing, without animus, that the way to get your boyfriend to admire your sexy new haircut is by telling him you’ve gotten one, not by glaring out at him from under the subtly different slant of your bangs. (As every woman needs to understand, his not noticing your new do doesn’t mean he’s stopped loving you; it means you haven’t shaved your head.)
TAKING OUT THE TRASHING
I am online dating and assume people will Google me before we meet. Two years ago, I briefly got involved with a crazy woman. When I realized how nuts she was, I broke up with her. She started an Internet campaign against me, posting horrible things about me online. These are obvious lies and clearly seem to be the rantings of a crazy person, but most are nearly impossible to get taken down. Should I casually mention these in an online chat with potential dates? (“Oh, by the way, if you read anything terrible about me online, it’s written by a crazy person.”) —Maligned Guy A person should get to know you a little before she learns you’re a 300-year-old incubus who poisoned our groundwater and killed the neighbors’ dog and made it look like a suicide. Since ranting crazies tend to sound, as the saying goes, a few balloons short of a parade, a prospective partner’s big worry is likely to be that sick drama is relationship-as-usual for you. The best way to dispel this fear is by letting someone see who you are before seeing who the Internet says you are. Wait until after the first date to reveal your last name. (If questioned, plead online dating prudence.) Create a new email address you use for online dating only so no one can use your regular one to Google your identity. And then, on your date, you could casually mention the nutty former ex — ideally in a way that suggests the experience was very much out of character for you. Assuming you come off solid and balanced, this should help dispel any suspicions that your ex is nuts because you drove her there or that you have some scary tendencies yourself. Although women these days tend to be pleasantly surprised by chivalry, they are always looking to weed out the sort of man who’ll end their evening with a considerate offer like “Can I walk you to my trunk?” n ©2013, Amy Alkon, all rights reserved. • Got a problem?

I Saw You
MOISTURE IN YOUR WINDOWS?
Zola’s Candy -- Moto Chic at Zola’s Friday, September 6th. I was with my dancing partner but managed to steal a few moments talking to you. I gave you my cell number and am kicking myself for not getting yours. Would love to buy you a coffee. Travis
we do reconnect we can start up where we left off. I’m indecisive, we don’t always have much to say, but just being is enough for me. Your company keeps me going. I may not climb every tree you do, but count on me to catch you if you fall.
to thank you for everything you tried to do for me. I wanted more than anything to be able to accept everything you offered me, I couldn`t find a way to say yes, due to my fear. I wasn`t myself at that time, I hope you know that, but since then, day by day, I grow sorrowful beacuse it`s another day I can`t grow with you by my side. I have so many regrets, you are always on my mind and in my heart.
The Star BarI don’t know your name and we’ve never spoken, but I’ve seen you at The Star Bar doing karaoke a few times. You’ve got ivory skin, dark hair just above your shoulders, probably mid 20’s and the most amazing smile I’ve ever seen on a woman. You glow and light up any room you walk into. I just want to talk to you but you’re always with people and it’s kind of intimidating. You really are so beautiful. Please never stop smiling. I’ll keep admiring from a distance. If I ever get the guts I will ask for your number some time.
To The Amazing Staffat Liberty Lake McDonalds! Almost every morning for the past 3 years I have came thru and ordered my 12/12 coffee and I just want to say that it’s a high light of my day! You are the only ones to actually put 12 cream and 12 sugar in my coffee lol! But I admit that it’s all of your friendliness and awesomeness that brings me back every time! You guys rock and you are appreciated beyond words Love the12/12 coffee girl

IT’S GOOD TO BE A GUY
Stepping Out Of A Large White Van and my heart skipped a beat. You must be the only other Indian in this town besides me. You were dashing, wearing a pair of maroon pants and still looking manly. I always dreamed that I would meet an Indian boy here and now I’ve seen one - an attractive one at that! I was that girl in the blue sundress, with the long dark hair, staring deep into your eyes. If you read this, would you consider going out for coffee? I’ll be at Calypso’s on Saturday.

I Love Youyou’re an Aries, I am a Libra. I am white, you’re black. You’re much older then me, but somehow we click. We find what we need in each other. I am so lucky to have a man who loves me, because I love you, my partner in crime. Good Talk PodcastTo the dapper shark studios good talk podcast. You guys rock my socks! The Tech issues you talk about saved me from dumping money into a less user friendly operating system
Put a non-identifying email address in your message, like “email@example.com” — not “firstname.lastname@example.org.” that would have cost more to my already strained budget, Keep talking nerdy to your adoring fans! The next round is on me! Customer Service Cheers and thanks to the ladies at Sport Clips in the Valley! I brought my two teenage boys (and myself) for a haircut during one of your busiest times during the week before school started. Not only did I get fast, warm, smiling service, the haircuts were excellent. It was busy in your place, but I felt like an individual, and we were treated with the utmost kindness and professionalism. Way to go, Sport Clips! To The Beautiful little German barista at The Little Garden Cafe. I saw you 5 years ago for the first time. I married you 3 years ago and I look forward to seeing you every day for the next 60 years. Du bist mein Schatz. Ich liebe Dich Schatzy! DiscernmentFourteen years is hard to ignore, although revenge will never resonate in my heart when it comes to you. I recognize that it can be difficult to relate within a visceral perimeter, however it is imperative that you understand that it is discernment, not fear, that guides my heart and actions. I proceed with caution in order to preserve and protect the love that I believe in. I haven’t, nor will ever block you. There is purpose in everything, and for that reason I will never stop believing for growth.
To K&Smy fave personal chef-tobe and the sexiest fashion blogger around: I feel lucky to have met you while living in Spokane and I’m so thankful for the friendship we’ve made. I’ve loved our talks, drinks and laughter. It’ll suck having to say goodbye! Thanks for letting me invade the awesome bond you have. I can’t wait to see where the fitness-nutrition-photographyblogging world will take y’all (to Austin please, ASAP!) Here’s to future adventures and visits. Ciao for now, your girl on TV. Thanks Thanks for making me soooo happy. You’re the best, Bean. Flash MobIt was just another day last week when all of a sudden five demonstrators broke out into a flash mob in the middle of the downtown Apple store singing a version of “Stop! In the name of love” urging Apple Corporation to pay its taxes. While these people might not be winning any Grammies for their performance anytime soon, they are right. As a former Apple employee, I know that Apple should stop gaming the tax code to evade paying billions in taxes that would go to invest in our country. Nothing like that has happened here before and I’m glad that some people, including the sign waivers outside, have the courage to stand up for the greater good. Happy Birthday! Baby Girl on September 15, 1961. This world is blessed with your beauty and presence. You are my love and life! Love Yyou!
Tow Truck DriverTo the tow truck driver that helped me out with getting off a keyed lug nut after my lug nut key was stolen and got a flat. I was stuck in a gas station lot downtown at night with everywhere being closed and no way to get the flat off my car, you saved my day. Thank you! Miss You DadDad, another birthday without looms. I wish you could see your grandson and his beautiful family. The boys have your sparkle in their eyes. I keep your memory alive by telling them the stories you told me, and the fun we had together as a family. You are real to them. They have a picture of you in your uniform, I tell them you were a member of the “Greatest Generation.” To me, you were Dad. Love and Mmiss you.
Jeers Tailgating To the white male in his 20’s driving on I-90 on Sunday, September 8th, approx 1:10 pm, right before crossing into WA from ID driving a white van with a rooftop cargo container. I, a white female in her 30’s with a child and a small dog in my green Ford Explorer. I was in the left lane and could not get over, yet you thought you would ride my tail following about a foot behind me. When I could get over and put my signal on and started to get over, you cut me off, causing me to swerve back into the left lane. If that wasn’t enough, after I was so upset I gave you the bird, you tried to hit my car with yours and then drive me off the road. Had it not been for my catlike reflexes, my family and I could have been dead right now. In trying to save our lives I missed getting your

now harder for you and also for the amazing dads out there who take care of their kids financially and lawfully as well as with their hearts! You cannot hurt us anymore and now all we feel for you is sad pity that you refuse to move on and let bitterness go, for that I am truly sorry.
a resolution? Did we not come from other countries who were enslaving us from our freedom where we were silenced by the actions we made, and as a choice, we the people, set aside our own animosities we had against each other, and worked together to try and be equal? Can we not learn to grow and move past one’s trespasses, and if it still bothers us confront them directly, instead of taking the cowardly way out? Can we not learn to pick and choose our own battles wisely, and maturely? I’ll admit, I am not perfect, nor do I pretend to be, but to hold onto these grudges seems wasteful, and hurtful to the one’s who are actually writing them.
RE: Perplexed RE: Perplexed\\ nYou did not help your case. Probably, no actually you made it worse! Ex-Wife I understand bitterness and pain and hurt, most of us who have ever loved understand. But where all respect or admiration that was once thought of you, is now a path we all walk on! You have belittled, taken advantage of, and selfishly disrespected single mothers everywhere. Not only did your ex-husband (and myself as well) pay full child support (enough to pay all the bills including the house mortgage so the kids could grow up in the house they’ve always known!) to you, you instead put all the money away including your own income and with our hard earned money you took extravagant trips and vacations (only one with the kids btw) and otherwise used the money meant for the children for your own selfish needs and feelings. What you spent on medical for them you only did out of pure vindictiveness in hopes of trying to financially f#@k us again! Do you realize that all the single mothers out there who would be ecstatic to have an ex that paid even a quarter of what we did! And how cooperative we were?! To think that I defended you and your actions not only to your ex but to your kids as well when they were upset at you?! I truly feel like an absolute dumba$$ for doing it now and any respect I had (and I had a lot for you!) is now gone like a puff of smoke! You’re the one that has to live with yourself and fortunately we don’t so the favor is on our side, but I deeply apologize to all the single moms out there struggling with dead beat dads and exes because women like the one I am writing too has made it
Jeers On Me!to the driver of a black motorcycle Wedneday, September 11th at LC right after school. Me: red sports car picking up my kid. I let my technology distract me and almost hurt you. No excuses or explanations, completely my bad. I even used to ride. I know better. My apologies. My kid suggested a Jeer for your language, but as a former motorcycle rider, I totally get it. All the jeers on me and my sincerest apologies. I truly do hope you see this. RE: Bus Riders To the person sending in the comment/Jeers regarding bus riders. Hold the Milk Truck, I often ride the bus and it is unclassy of you and unfair of you to put all bus riders in a group and assume things.Have you ever riden a bus? Do you know how difficult it is to walk across a road or in this case a highway with groceries? Maybe that person has a large family to support and has but no choice to buy “all that stuff without thinking about it”. Ever think of that? Also, just because one rides a bus by no means makes them dirty or grimey. Nor will a bus rider using a cart leave said cart any more or less grimey than anyone else, such a statement out of your mouth just shows how undereducated you are. Get on a bus, buy some groceries and you try getting them home, it is not easy! And then tell us how it is, I pray that those judgements will be replaced by compassion. Really!? Here is something to ponder to all those who jeer and complain. Are we really that unfortunate as a society to instead of saying something to that person directly about one’s actions, we decide to sit here and hide behind a keyboard, or pen and paper as

To Losing A FriendAll of us in this community and the world lost a good friend last week. I’m not going to go into how he died or why, but I can tell you that he was a huge part of being a catalyst for Spokane’s Music/Entertainment/ Art and community. The last time I saw him was at Elkfest 2013 shining bright in the midafternoon sun on stage with his talented crew, The Flying Spiders. Since I heard the news of his apparent suicide I can’t stop listening to his and his bands latest album, “Sexy Intelligent EP: Villaging Trilogy”. It’s a solid album and is funky and well crafted by his creative cast. It really hit hard to try to remind us all in our great city to always take time to say “hi” or spend a minute with someone in our tight knit art and music community. I myself struggle with depression and anxiety and at times I think we forget how fragile and emotional creative minds are. As I write this on the anniversary of 9/11, I want to remind all of us artist, musicians, painters and writers that you all have so much courage and light that you bring to the world and to never quit or get discouraged. Sometimes maybe we need to realize why we all do what we do and to not chase the sometimes elusive fame/fortune/ respect theories and to do it to “inspire, to free your soul, to create beauty, to make people smile, and to make true human connections.” These being the only things that really matter in this f@#*ed up world. So next time you see a lonely soul playing his saxaphone downtown, or a painter painting under a railroad bridge or some sweat soaked guitarist that just melted everyone’s face at some dive bar, say “What’s up?” and “thank you” in this often times “thankless” vocation. God Rest Your Soul Som - Much love!

unfolding of United States history. Robbie Paul is Nez Perce, a member of a sovereign nation who now holds reconciliation ceremonies at the site of the Big Hole Massacre, ten miles west of Wisdom, Montana, where little more than a century ago, Nez Perce men, women, and children were massacred by U.S. Cavalry. Unimaginable if it weren’t for the fact that it’s true, today the descendants of those who were massacred meet with the descendants of the Cavalry who committed the massacre. A ceremony of peace is performed. The Nez Perce invite reconciliation. People confront their interior fears, and emerge stronger and more capable. Despite every right to be hateful or violent, the Nez Perce forgive, and draw the human race into the heart of a necessary encounter with our own darkness. They take the veil from our eyes and let us see. They touch our brokenness and make us whole again. Robbie Paul, a scholar with a doctorate in leadership studies from Gonzaga, lives in the Spokane area just north of Deer Park and is a professor at Washington State University. In her research she traced five generations of Nez Perce leaders in her own family, from the advent of first white contact to today. In her research she found the resilience, reconciliation and power of her people. She also found in her people the road to healing, even in the face of genocide and dislocation. A long road indeed, the road of reconciliation, and one that requires our most vital will. At the end of this road she took her father’s hand and walked with him into the heart of the heart of the mountains, where she sat down together with him and with the descendants of those who had massacred her people and her father’s people. There she did not offer cynicism or contempt, revenge or ruin. She and her father with her offered peace. And when they looked to the rim of the world, the sun shone like fire. n Shann Ray is a professor of Leadership Studies at Gonzaga University. He is the author of Forgiveness and Power in the Age of Atrocity: Servant Leadership as a Way of Life; American Masculine: Stories; and Balefire: Poems, forthcoming from Lost Horse Press.
