One man show with Telly Award winning actor, James Reid, at 11 a.m.

 PHOENIX – Hundreds of people came through the FLYING OVER TIME:  THE SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS Exhibit, interactive, multi-disciplinary art/history exhibit at ASU West Friday.  The exhibition, which concludes today at La Sala ballroom in the University Center Building, (4701 W. Thunderbird, Phoenix) attracted history buffs, those interested in aviation, science, visual and performing arts.  Telly Award winning actor James Reid brings the story of the construction of THE SPIRIT OF ST. LOUIS, Reid repeats his tour de force this morning at 11 a.m.  The play depicts Donald A. Hall, the engineer who took pilot Charles A. Lindbergh’s challenge to build the plane in just 60 days, Nova Hall, Donald Hall’s grandson, is the curator of the exhibition.  The show concludes today at 5 p.m. To view video visit: For additional exhibition information, please contact Tiffany Kell at 602.316.9075 or  For additional media information, please contact, Carole V. Bartholomeaux, 602.404.8018 or

“Flying Over Time,” according to Nova Hall, “is like nothing one has ever seen; it is part museum exhibition, performance space, corporate events venue and educational workshop.  We are so pleased to have an actor as accomplished as James Reid portraying Donald Hall.”

Hall says the exhibit is designed to teach art, history and science through the inspirational story of the Spirit of St. Louis, which made the first-ever non-stop flight from New York to Paris and earned Lindbergh the Orteig Prize, a $25,000 award offered by New York hotelier Raymond Orteig to the first allied aviators to make such a trans-Atlantic crossing.

The exhibit is made possible through the generous support of ASU West, the New College Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Sciences as a primary example of the university’s commitment to creativity, entrepreneurship and enhanced connections to the community.  In addition, the Charles A. and Ann Morrow Lindbergh Foundation have made a generous endorsement of the 501c3 project.

Hall earned his B.A. in integrative studies from ASU’s New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences in 2010.

The October exhibit will mark the liftoff of what Hall hopes will be an international travelling exhibition. The story of the younger Hall's introduction to the aeronautical engineering genius of his grandfather is equally fascinating.  That the first Trans-Atlantic flight was made in an airplane that was designed and built in just 60 days is amazing even today.

“It was in 1999 and we were living in Sedona,” said Hall, who published “Spirit and Creator: The Mysterious Man Behind Lindbergh’s Flight to Paris” in 2002 as a testament to the senior Hall’s accomplishment. “We were moving and I was in the garage going through boxes when I found an old steamer trunk.”

The trunk, carrying the initials DAH, belonged to Hall’s grandfather. Inside was what the artist calls “a treasure trove of history.” Blueprints of Hall’s collaboration with Lindbergh, thought to be long gone, along with photos and correspondence between the two were found inside the trunk. It put him on a fast track into researching his grandfather’s historic work.

“What was inside the trunk became the basis for ‘Spirit and Creator,’” said Hall. “There are pieces from the discovery that are now in museums in France and in other places. Some were auctioned locally to get the book off the ground.  The discovery became the book, the book became the art.”

Hall describes his artistic styling as a fusion between surrealism and pop art colors. Almost all of his art features an element of collage, including one in which he has embedded an original headline recounting Lindbergh’s Paris landing from the front page of the May 21, 1927, New York Herald.

Arizona’s Oldest Folk Music Festival Set for Oct. 1-2

             Some 200 outstanding musicians, including Katie Lee, Ted Ramirez, Hans Olson and Peter McLaughlin, will gather at Sharlot Hall Museum the weekend of October 1-2 for the 33rd annual Folk Music Festival. The event is Arizona’s oldest continuing folk music festival and the third oldest continuing festival of its kind in the nation.

            The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day, and daily admission is $5 for adults, $3 for Museum members and free for those under 18.

            The festival will feature superb folk musicians performing on four sound stages around the shade-covered Museum grounds. Some of the outstanding musicians selected for this year’s event are Katie Lee, Ted Ramirez, Hans Olson and Peter McLaughlin. The complete list of performers will be finalized and posted online at by September 6.

            “We received over 400 applications from musicians wanting to be part of the festival, so we have a great pool to choose from,” said Jody Drake, Museum education curator and festival director. “The breath and depth of talent at this year’s festival will be awesome.”

            Katie Lee is an Arizona icon who began her career as a stage and screen actress before becoming a fixture in coffeehouses and cabarets throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico as a folksinger. She has emerged as one of the Southwest’s most outspoken environmental activists, using her music and feisty eloquence to both entertain and educate. As an added feature, Lee will be inducted into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame (AMEHOF) in a special evening program at 7:30 p.m. at the Elks Theater, 117 E. Gurley St. in Prescott.

            National flat-picking champion Peter McLaughlin from Tucson has made a name for himself as an award-winning guitarist/singer and as a member of several groups, including Perfect Strangers. He toured nationally and internationally for six years as guitarist and harmony vocalist with Laurie Lewis’s band. His music CDs include “So Long Arizona” and “Cliffs of Vermillion.”

            Hans Olson has been a full time performing musician since 1972. He tours all over the world, but most of the time he travels the highways in Arizona where he has a reputation as a solo act that can rock a nightclub all night long. He has recorded over 70 of his songs on his 13 independent record releases.

            Tucson’s Teodoro “Ted” Ramirez is a premier folk musician, singer/songwriter and storyteller–­­a living link in the chain of authentic troubadours of the Southwest. He is intensely committed to presenting the beautiful and powerful story of his homeland using original and traditional Southwestern music and stories.

            The family-friendly event also features musical acts for the kids. Further enhancing the proceedings are workshops for specific instruments (dulcimers, musical saws, mandolin, etc.) and group discussions of an intriguing array of folk-music topics.

            The Folk Music Festival is renowned for its impromptu jam sessions featuring musicians from different groups and styles mixing and mingling with visitors. The event also includes an instrument swap meet on Sunday morning, while the ever-popular band scramble returns on Sunday afternoon to close the weekend with a healthy mix of humor and music.

            Sharlot Hall Museum is located at 415 W. Gurley St. in Prescott. For more information, call the Museum at 928-445-3122 or visit the website at

Chef at Assisted Living Community in Paradise Valley Revealed as Regional Winner of Ultimate Chef America 2010

 PHOENIX – Chosen from more than 21 eligible regional chefs within 17 Brookdale Senior Living communities locally, Chef Jeffery Amperse of Brookdale Place Paradise Valley, a Brookdale Senior Living assisted living community in Arizona, has earned the regional culinary honor of 2010 for participating in Ultimate Chef America.

 Throughout 2010, the culinary professionals of Brookdale Senior Living, leading owner and operator of senior living communities throughout the United States, put on a year-long series of first-class cooking competitions nationwide from Phoenix to Jacksonville, Fla. with stops along the way in Dallas, Denver, Detroit and Atlanta. At each event, two teams of senior living chefs had two hours to produce four courses with the theme of healthy cooking, using only a grill.

 Dishes prepared by the chefs were judged on-site by a panel of five celebrity judges headed by Leeza Gibbons and a Brookdale resident with a culinary background. The teams won awards for taste, creativity and presentation. In addition, each individual chef was awarded points on his or her dish.

Each event showcased the talents of Brookdale’s professional chefs, who created dishes that were not only flavorful and unique, but were made especially for less sensitive senior palates. Amperse’s team prepared grilled chicken and goat cheese salad, mushroom risotto timbale, grilled spaghetti vegetables, grilled mango and poached pear with fruit yogurt sauce. They won “Best Taste” and “Best Creativity.” Amperse’s winning entrée was grilled sea bass with roasted red pepper coulis and balsamic syrup.

 After graduating from the Scottsdale Culinary Institute in 1994, Amperse started his career as a saucier at L’Auberge De Sedona in Arizona. After relocating to Tucson, Ariz., Amperse worked in various positions at several upscale spas and resorts. Amperse joined Brookdale Senior Living as director of Dining Services at Brookdale Place Paradise Valley in October 2006.

 “Cooking for seniors requires special training and expertise because the sensitivity of taste buds and palates change with age, so the flavors have to be bolder and richer and the textures of foods need to be more ‘senior friendly’ as well,” said Joska Hajdu, Brookdale’s senior vice president of Dining Services and an executive chef by trade. “That’s one reason why the participating chefs and their creations are special; they are created with passion and an intensity that surpasses food served in other venues.”

 Ultimate Chef America, however, was much more than a professional cooking competition. Each event was a celebration of great food and life fulfillment. In each of the six locations, residents and guests were in the audience for live talk shows with celebrity judges and senior health and culinary experts that were streamed over the Internet and broadcast to other Brookdale communities. The competition also featured seminars on food, wine and seasonings, presented by experts on each topic. There were also guided tours of the host community; a silent auction benefiting the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation and its signature program Leeza’s Place, “A Place for Caregivers,” a community gathering place and resource center for family caregivers impacted by chronic or progressive illness; and a business expo highlighting the event’s sponsors, including Nestle Vitality, Nestle Professional, Advanced Foods, Walgreens, Tyson Foods, Royal Cup, Fidelity Print, Ecolab, SCA and Entegra.

 The six events have welcomed, entertained and served almost 5,000 guests. The silent auctions  conducted at the events have raised more than $100,000 to support the work of the Leeza Gibbons Memory Foundation and $16,000 to help the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

  “Ultimate Chef America also gave our residents and those considering a move to a Brookdale community a first-hand experience with our concept for living, Optimum Life,” said Sara Terry, vice president of Optimum Life for Brookdale Senior Living. 

 A way of life offered exclusively by Brookdale Senior Living at its communities, Optimum Life®, focuses on six key dimensions - emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual and purposeful.

Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation & The Arizona Republic to sponsor Arizona CENTennial Penny Drive Bashas’ to partner on statewide children’s legacy project to encourage K-8 schools to support cleaning of State Capitol Copper Dome

Phoenix, AZ (January 25, 2011) – Students will have three of Arizona’s most respected companies on their side when they set out to raise funds to shine the Arizona Capitol Copper Dome in preparation for the state’s 100th birthday celebration Feb. 14, 2012.  Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation and The Arizona Republic have joined together to sponsor the Arizona Centennial 2012 Foundation’s statewide children’s legacy project: Arizona CENTennial Penny Drive, which kicks-off February 9 and runs through April 11.  Bashas’ is also partnering with the Commission on the project. 

“With Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Foundation and The Arizona Republic as project co-sponsors and Bashas’ as our partner, we have the perfect team for the Arizona CENTennial Penny Drive,” said Karen Churchard, executive director of the Arizona Centennial Commission.  “All three companies are committed to excellence in education in Arizona and we are thrilled each has agreed to join us in this special endeavor.  As children throughout the state collect pennies to clean the Capitol copper dome, they will learn about the state’s rich history, along with many other subjects related to Arizona’s statehood.”

The Arizona CENTennial Penny Drive gives students in grades K-8 the opportunity to participate in Arizona’s Centennial celebration.  The goal is to raise funds to clean and reseal the copper dome of the State Capitol, the launching point for the state’s full line-up of Centennial celebrations.  If the fundraising goal is exceeded, additional funds will be endowed to refurbish memorials in Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza and maintain Centennial trees planted on Washington Street. 

Schools can sign up to participate at

The Penny Drive runs for 48 school days, February 9 to April 15.  The dates and length of the drive are significant.  Arizona was the 48th state admitted to the union, and February 9 is the day in 1911 that voters of the Arizona Territory overwhelming approved a new state constitution.  One year and five days later Arizona’s statehood bill was signed into law by U.S. President William Howard Taft.

"The CENTennial Penny Drive is a tremendous program to increase awareness of Arizona’s history by engaging and educating children about their state," says Tracy Bame, Director of Community Development for Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold. “Copper played an integral role in Arizona's history, will continue to be an essential part of our future, and we are pleased to help lead this effort to enable our students to learn about and celebrate the past, present and future."

Carol Itule, Educational Services Manager for The Arizona Republic, says, “The Arizona Republic has been an integral part of Arizona since Territorial days, and we are thrilled to celebrate our state’s Centennial.  The Republic has a long history of community leadership and involvement, and we are particularly committed to supporting Arizona’s young learners through our Media In Education program.  We encourage all Arizona schools to participate in the Penny Drive, a remarkable children’s legacy project.”

“We’re encouraging every Arizonan to help these students with their Penny Drive,” said Kristy Nied, Director of Communications for Bashas’ Family of Stores.  “You can help by rounding up your Bashas’ or Food City grocery bill to the next dollar, or making an open amount donation at any register.”

About the Arizona Centennial Commission

The Arizona Centennial Commission and its non-profit Arizona Centennial 2012 Foundation is comprised of distinguished Arizonans from public and private life, and is committed to involving all Arizonans to help fulfill the Centennial vision -- “to appreciate our state’s rich past, celebrate the present, and together, create a vibrant and sustainable future.”  For more information, visit

In an emergency situation...

After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in. 

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :The elbow is the strongest pointon your body.

If you are close enough to use it,do! 

2.. Learned this from a tourist guide.If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse,DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM.Toss it away from you..... Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you,and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car,kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc.DON'T DO THIS!The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go.


If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you.If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it .

As soon as the car crashes bail out and run.It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:

A.) Be aware:look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat

B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.

C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle,and the passenger side.... If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.

IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN!  The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ.

RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. Women are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted 
his next victim..

9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..' The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night. 

10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a
burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your
outside taps full ball so that you will go out to investigate and
then attack.

Stay alert, keep safe, and look out for your neighbors!

One-Third of Employees Lunch at Their Desk

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, August 30, 2011 – One-third of employees have lunch at their desk each day, according to a survey by Right Management, workforce consulting experts within ManpowerGroup. But another one-third takes no lunch, or only occasionally.

During July and August Right Management polled 751 North American workers via an online survey and asked:

 Do you regularly take a break for lunch? 

Yes, almost always


Yes, but usually stay at my desk


Only from time to time


Seldom, if ever


 “Lunch patterns allow us to infer a few things about the North American workplace… and one thing that we already know is that the pressure for productivity and performance can be relentless,” said Douglas Sietsema, Right Management’s Talent Management Practice Leader for the Western states. “This pressure is showing up in various ways like our finding that one-in-three employees are very likely now in the habit of taking lunch at their computers and phones and with supervisors and colleagues. So whether it’s a true break is open to question. Then there are 31% who take a lunch break seldom or just once in a while. Only a minority of employees, it seems, take time away from their desk and even some of them probably go to a workplace lunchroom. One has to wonder how many workers actually leave the workplace and get a chance to clear their heads…and what the downstream toll of lack of true breaks and downtime might be for employee well-being and overall organizational performance.”

 The workplace culture or management’s example might make workers feel compelled to stay at their desks, observed Sietsema. “Employees may feel they have to apologize for stepping out, but in the long run this kind of company culture does not help improve performance or engagement.”

 “Sure, workers may feel devoted to their work, which is fine, but given the level of stress in today’s workplace I wonder if the reluctance to take a break is an expression of devotion or a negative consequence of the unrelenting pressure some organizations are exerting on their workforces to get more done with fewer resources,” said Sietsema. “Taking time away from one’s desk for lunch would help reduce tension and boost energy. But our research results might lead us to ask is that still a real option for people now?”

 “We’ve certainly come a long way from the three-martini lunch of a generation ago,” said Sietsema. “But we have to question if we’ve gone too far in the other direction.”

Arizona Organizing Project Launches 1010 Community Center
Peer Groups Lifting Each Other Out of Homelessness Through Social Enterprises

Phoenix, Ariz., (May 23, 2011) - With an estimated 8,000 homeless individuals in Maricopa County, according to a 2009 report, a resource center is now open to offer peer-to-peer model programs and social enterprises. The center's goal is to advance as many people as possible into full recovery and help them move into work and enterprises that can generate income so they can take control of their lives and have a home that they can sustain.

The Arizona Organizing Project (AZOP) launched the official opening of its 1010 Community Center located at 1010 West Adams in Phoenix on Monday, May 23 at 9:00 a.m., which has been made possible through a community collaboration with St. Luke's Health Initiatives, the Arizona Community Foundation and The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation-Generations in Giving Program and plentiful outreach by AZOP's peer groups, interns and community volunteers.

"None of this would have been possible without the business community and concerned individuals, but we need the whole community involved," states George Roundy, executive director of the Arizona Organizing Project and valley businessman. "Each and every resident of our community has the capacity to make a difference and we look forward to hearing from you and engaging with your resources."

The Arizona Organizing Project is dedicated to fostering healthy and sustainable communities organized and led by people emerging from poverty. The 1010 Community Center will offer programs where peers work with peers to lift each other out of poverty and homelessness through social enterprise development.

"Leaders from our formerly homeless population can and will take on responsibilities and run with projects when they are offered credible and consistent support and a place to meet, learn, and connect to other Valley organizations that can work with them," said Scott Jacobson, director of development for the Arizona Organizing Project.

Social Enterprise Development
AZOP - 1010 Community Center is a peer-run center led by formerly and currently homeless people that is a resource-rich environment for stable social enterprise development for homeless people who have a desire and aptitude to be social entrepreneurs. The work of these social entrepreneurs creates enterprises that improve the common good and solve a social problem in a new, more lasting and effective way than traditional approaches, while lifting them to sustainable prosperity.

AZOP - 1010 Community Center Social Enterprises include:

Bicycle Cooperative: Renovate, Recycle, and Resale
A cooperative program is being established with local bicycle shops that offer a train-the-trainer program that provides bicycle technician training to Community Center members, who will transform donated bicycles into road-ready bikes, which can be "peddled" to create self-sufficiency or used for essential modes of transportation for access to food, employment, social services, and support services. The Community Center members will then mentor other homeless men and women on bike mechanic services.

Urban Community Farm to Launch Thursday
Literally tons of fertile Gro-Well Premium Soil is scheduled to be delivered for the launch of the Urban Community Farm on Thursday, May 26, 2011. The 1010 Urban Community Farm will be a hands-on learning project with 10 raised garden beds, each measuring six by 12 feet by one foot deep. The beds will be used to grow fruits and vegetables for the community to eat. Greg Peterson, founder of The Urban Farm, will offer a series of classes to community members to learn the  care and maintenance of planting and harvesting techniques. Along with this program, community members will learn yard maintenance skills, which they can offer local residents through the AZ Organizing Project Office. In addition to Peterson, community supports include Darren Chapman of Tigermountain Foundation, Jim Beuerlein of GRO-WELL, Terry Ricketts and Jesse Sanchez of APS, and Phoenix Clean and Beautiful.

Sewing, Crochet and Textile Enterprise: We already have a successful program attracting more than 40 women a week taught by gifted women in our community like, Ann Morton (ASU School of Fine Arts graduate student), Cattryn Somers and Lisa Takata, who are sharing their skills with these eager and talented seamstresses. AZOP has three sewing machines, but needs more to answer the demand. AZOP needs more teachers who will commit to visiting our offices once a week for a six-week session and educating these eager learners.

Tillie McCoy, is a great example of emerging leaders from The Arizona Organizing Project. McCoy had a long history of struggling with addiction and its many challenges that led her down the road to homelessness and walking into CASS (Central Arizona Shelter Services). Today, McCoy, a recent graduate of EMERGE, is an employed budding entrepreneur and leader with the peer-to-peer enterprising program, Women of Wealth (WOW), which is a group of 100 women, who are working together to heal, learn, teach, and commit to helping advance one another collectively to self-sufficiency and success.

Scott Jacobson, director of development for the Arizona Organizing Project and former executive director of Valley Leadership, originally met Tillie while he was working as a volunteer at Human Services Campus, "I saw her organize the women and corral them and convince them that they were worth organizing." Jacobson adds, "I learned a lot from Tillie. If we don't stop and listen to people with amazing stories, we categorize them in one lump, and we all lose."

KANSAS' first public statement appeared on their self-titled album in 1974, "From the beginning, we considered ourselves and our music different and we hope we will always remain so."

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio appointed rock legend Ted Nugent deputy and was sworn in last summer in Arpaio’s downtown Phoenix office. Nugent is known for his conservative political views and defense of hunting and gun ownership rights. He has served on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association and is a spokesman for the Drug Abuse Resistance Education, National Field Archery Association, Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.
At 62, the veteran rocker’s no holds barred career spans five decades of multi-platinum hits and more than 30 million albums sold. Both as a solo artist and with the Amboy Dukes and Damn Yankees, Nugent has amassed a sizable list of well-known hits, including "Journey To The Center Of The Mind," "Stranglehold," "Free For All," "Dog Eat Dog," "Wango Tango," "Cat Scratch Fever," "Motor City Madhouse," cult classic “Fred Bear,” "High Enough” and “Love Grenade.”
Hailing from Detroit, Nugent’s guitar talents and over-the-top onstage antics quickly earned young Ted the moniker of "Motor City Madman." Get your Nuge on! His fire-breathing intensity and the sound he wrings from his almighty Gibson Byrdland have placed him among the all-time greats of rock & roll.
In addition to music, Nugent is a New York Times best-selling author of Ted, White and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto and his autobiography titled God, Guns, & Rock n' Roll. He heads up his own hunting camp, owns his own hunting supply store and sells his own beef jerky.

Mr. Lucky -- Chris Isaak’s stunning new masterpiece -- perfectly balances the ecstasy of great romance with the agony of pure heartbreak. Mr. Lucky offers passionate music that feels decidedly lived-in. Like some rocking Sinatra album for the 21st Century, Mr. Lucky is a song cycle about the good luck we earn and the bad luck we just can’t seem to shake. Right from its killer opener -- the wonderfully tortured “Cheaters Town” -- to the concluding and uplifting “Big, Wide Wonderful World,” Isaak takes us all on a dark but beautiful ride -- one you will likely recognize as your own.
