  8. A River Doesn't Run Through ItRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday May 20 | Boise Weekly

    When we last spoke to Josh Olson, the city of Boise's Cultural Asset Program manager, in November 2014, the winter winds were soon to blow, thus delaying the renovation of one of the highest profile pieces of public art in Idaho: "The River Sculpture" at the corner of Capitol Boulevard and Front Street. Disrepair and wear-and-tear prevented the sculpture's lights and the misting system from working since 2009, and the city had to decide whether to repair the sculpture - commissioned in 1999 - at considerable cost or rip it from its anchor in front of the Grove Hotel.

    Wednesday May 20 | Boise Weekly

    The Italian phrase al fresco translates literally in English as "in the fresh." When Italians use the phrase, they're referring to someone serving time in jail-because, apparently, the Italian prison system isn't as concerned with keeping people locked up inside-but Americans use al fresco as shorthand for "dining outside."

  12. The Galaxy ForestRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday May 20 | Boise Weekly

    Reggae, funk and R&B aren't sounds often associated with the plains of Eastern Idaho, but they come together in The Galaxy Forest , a self-described "mountain reggae band" based in Idaho Falls. Fronted by Felicia and Alicia Banks, the band channels the sauntering groove of the islands but isn't afraid to venture into uptempo new age funk or crunchy ballads.

    Around this time 12 years ago, I was sitting in the Morrison Quadrangle on the campus of Albertson College of Idaho listening to J.R. Simplot say something about the "Red Chinese" and the importance of getting - and keeping - water rights. It was the Official Wisdom, passed down from one of Idaho's greatest business leaders to the newest crop of graduates from the school that matriculated Joe Albertson, Robert Smylie and Simplot's own former son-in-law, C.L. "Butch" Otter.

    Wednesday May 20 | Boise Weekly

    Boise Weekly's conversation with Jim Everett, who will step down as CEO of the Treasure Valley YMCA later this year, occasionally became emotional, which was no surprise - the lives Everett has touched are legion. Countless children know him as Jim; even more adults know him as one of the most successful chief executives in Idaho history; and come New Year's Day 2016, his first day of retirement, he'll embrace the title he loves most: Grandpa.

    Wednesday May 20 | Boise Weekly

    It's called the "Zip Code Syndrome" and it's all-too-familiar to the growing class of Idaho's working poor who scoff at economists' analyses of an improving economy or media accounts of "affordable" housing that tops $1,200 per month. Talk of the syndrome began surfacing soon after the United Way of Treasure Valley published its sobering 2014 Community Assessment.

    Wednesday May 20 | Boise Weekly

    With songs woven out of slowed-down summer sunlight on a loom of cheap apartment blinds, and draped over dirty Keds and Rainier empties, Ava Luna is drifting through Boise in the depths of its cross-country Electric Balloon tour, at the dawn of patio beer season with copies of its new album, Infinite House , in hand. The New York quintet's sound is best described as "downtempo" and "noncommittal," but it has set in proverbial geo-temporal coordinates for a City of Trees show at Neurolux, Tuesday, May 26, at 7 p.m. as part of Radio Boise Tuesday.
