by MICHAEL BOWEN & r & & r & That Idea Is Genius & r & & r & Some of last week's MacArthur "genius" grants ($100K for each of five years, with no strings attached) went to violinist Leila Josefowicz (we interviewed her a couple years ago when she played with the Symphony), saxophonist Miguel Zenon (we reviewed his second CD) and music critic Alex Ross (who wrote The Rest Is Noise, which we browsed through in a bookstore once). Phone calls to the three recipients requesting a little somethin'-somethin' were not immediately returned.

You Don't Know Jack

Not if you haven't been to the Jacklin Arts & amp; Culture Center at the Old Church in Post Falls. They've got a wood art show going on through Oct. 10: lots of wooden bowls, of course, but also wood fashioned into shapes resembling horses, flowers, snakes and seashells. Visit or call (208) 457-8950.

Panhandle Art Patrons

You could o.d. on all the art they're creating over in Coeur d'Alene for the next 10 days: dance lessons, performances of Nunsense at Lake City Playhouse, a lecture on politics by PBS commentator Juan Williams, and even scarecrow-building. (For details, visit But much of the activity centers on the Resort Plaza Shops on Friday-Saturday, Oct. 10-11, with plenty of strolling singers and art displays, a women's film festival and an architecture walk, all to be capped off by the CdA Symphony performing music of Elgar and Beethoven. Take it slow and don't over-culturate yourself.

Autumnal Antiquing

Rocking chairs and toy trains, old Coke bottles and china in more floral patterns than you can shake a candelabrum at -- these are among the thousands of antiques and collectibles at the Spokane County Fair & amp; Expo Center this weekend. You can get advice on art restoration (along with doll and glass repair) for just $6, while children 12 and younger get in free. Visit

Questioning His Longevity

"Ghostly image triggers security camera," ran the video headline: In a weight room in Kansas, you could see an ethereal "white orb" moving about in the middle of the night and actually setting off motion detectors. We're convinced it was some late-night iron-pumpin' by that white-on-white candidate, John McCain.

    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.
