Verse in Silence


The institute that commemorates Thomas Merton (1915-68; author of The Seven Storey Mountain) has given awards for contemplative poetry for the past nine years. Out of 1,200 entrants this year, the winner was Laurie Klein of Deer Park, for her poem about the miraculousness of larynx surgery. Read Klein's poem and biography at www.mertoninstitute.org.





An XX-Rated Show


Oh, stop -- we're talking chromosomes. At the Spokane Women's Show this weekend at the Convention Center, you can go serious (listening to discussions of women's metabolism, body image, cardiac health, breast cancer, money management and more) or you can go light (watching dance demos, bachelor auctions or a fashion show). Visit www.SpokaneWomensShow.com or call 220-0145.





Celtic Crooneress


Tierney Sutton is beautiful, funny, Grammy-nominated (with another nom sure to follow for last month's On the Other Side) and (unlike so many performers) she sounds just as good live as she does on her CDs. Note to SJO: Bring her back!





Civic Pride


The best community theater productions this year in two states are both from our area: Lake City Playhouse's musical about a resuscitated quartet of do-wop singers, Forever Plaid, was voted best in Idaho, while Spokane Civic Theatre's musical about presidential killers, Assassins, won for Washington. They'll face off in regional competition in Tacoma on March 24-25. Break your legs, people!





Better Than the Other 12


They're a sextet (flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano, percussion) that plays contemporary chamber music. They appeared on Osvaldo Golijov's Ayre with Dawn Upshaw, and their name derives from a Wallace Stevens poem ("Thirteen Ways ..."), so you know they're cool. They're eighth blackbird, playing UI's Admin Building in Moscow, Idaho, on Tuesday, March 20, at 7:30 pm. Tickets: $18; $15, seniors; $8, students. Visit www.eighthblackbird.com or call (208) 885-7557.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
