Side Trips

We all tend to be creatures of habit.

In our family, one example is

choosing a restaurant when we’re

going to eat out. “Where do you want to

go?” someone asks.

The answers back are

often “I don’t know”

and “Wherever you’d

like to go. You pick.”

Ten minutes later we

still don’t have a decision.

This summer I’ve

been trying to get us to

try new places before

we revert to some of

the same spots we

always go to. Tonight

as we left Sheldon to

MYRNA

WAGNER

attend the Tuesday night opening at the

Okoboji Summer Theatre, we had an odd

amount of time on our schedule. Too much

time to resort to fast food, but a little tight

for some of the sit-down dining options in

the Lakes area, especially since we did not

have a reservation.

As we drove, I pulled up the mobile version

of this publication to check the restaurant

ads. A colleague mentioned they had

tried That One Place down at Boji Bay a few

weeks ago, and had enjoyed the buffet. That

seemed just right for the amount of time we

had.

Turns out, eating the buffet was a wise

choice for the guys, and I was able to savor a

seared ahi tuna salad.

After dinner the guys still had time for

two trips down the big wooden slide from

the fun house. Wearing a summer dress and

heals, I decided to abstain and instead shot

a quick video of their little adventure.

How many restaurants do you know that

can offer that kind of bonus entertainment?

Only at Okoboji…

Car lovers will want to pencil in a

visit to the park next weekend.

Specifically Arnolds Park Amusement

Park, and specifically to see

Corvettes. The University of Okoboji

Corvette Club will host Vettes in the

Park Friday and Saturday, July 28-29

culminating in an awards ceremony at

2:15 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

For the third year Sampson Corvettes

is sponsoring the event, allow

Corvette owners to register their vehicle

for free.

For the first year Sampson Corvettes

will host a gathering the Friday afternoon

in Sanborn. Beginning at 3:15

p.m. registration and snacks will be

provided before guests caravan to see

Chuck Long’s car collection near Village

West Resort with a social gathering

to follow.

Craig Sampson, owner of Sampson

Corvettes, has been a member of the

University of Okoboji Corvette Club

since 2003 when he stopped selling

used cars to focus solely on Corvettes.

“We started with just one and have

as many as 25 in here now,” Sampson

said. “I don’t know what it is, but

people just love Corvettes.”

Sampson pointed out a 1963 Corvette

that he noted was probably the

most sought after and collectible car

in the world.

That particular car will be on hand

for the indoor show at the Roof Garden

where models from every class of

Corvette will be on display.

“The show inside the Roof Garden

is the big deal. There will be cars from

every class starting in 1953 all the way

up to 2017,” Sampson said. “I can’t

really pick one. I like them all.”

The show on Saturday will be from

8 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Cars for the indoor

display are asked to be at the park

before 9:30 a.m.

Parking for the rest of the show will

be on the street, and the tent area by

the lake and Preservation Plaza.

The Vettes in the Park show coincides

with the Antique and Classic

Boat Show Rendezvous for the second

year in a row.

“I think they go together well and

brings a lot of people in too,” Sampson

said.

“A lot of the wooden boat people

enjoy Corvettes, too. If you don’t want

to look at Corvettes you can go look at

the boats or vice versa.”

Corvettes, like Arnolds Park and the

Iowa Great Lakes, are an American

classic. Enjoy them all together at

Vettes in the Park. F

the “Duchess 2.” The boat as well

as an interest in the boat show was

passed down to Kent by his grandfather,

Irving F. Jensen Jr.

“I live in Sioux City, Iowa, and then

I spend the weekends up in Okoboji

at my family’s place on West Lake. I’ve

been involved with the boat club

since I started going to the shows with

my grandfather,” Kent said. “The boat

I’ll be bringing this year was actually

my grandfather’s that has since been

passed to be. I grew up going to the

shows with him and helping him enter

the boat.”

As the years passed, Kent got more

involved and helped set up for the

boat show every year and even helped

dock boats the day of the show. About

two year ago, the former organizer of

the annual boat show stepped down,

and Kent, along with his cousin, took

over the reins of the event.

The event will kick off at 10 a.m.,

and spectators are free to roam the

docks until around 3 p.m. after which

the boats are going on parade.

“We start at Arnolds Park and cruise

the shoreline, and the DNR helps us

negotiate under the bridge at 71 onto

East Lake then and we go back to the

park. The parade is set to start at 3:30

p.m.,” Kent said.

There’s still time for boat owners to

register to be a part of the big day and

people can even register the day of,

according to Kent. Simply give him a

call or show up on Saturday, July 29,

with your classic boat.

While Kent enjoys seeing all the

boats, he also enjoys being on the

dock with the thousands of spectators

who come to the boat rendezvous

every year.

“My favorite part is walking the

docks while the show is going on and

hearing people talk about the boats

and the excitement they have,” Kent

said. F

BRING ON THE

BREWS

Craft beer festival comes to ‘Boji

Craft beer has been brewing in

the Iowa Great Lakes for several

years thanks to Okoboji Brewing

Company and West O Beer. But there

hasn’t been a craft beer festival. Until

now.

The first annual Boji Brew Fest is

slated for Saturday, July 29 at Central

Park in Arnolds Park.

Okoboji Brewing Company and

West O Beer will host the event along

with the Iowa Great Lakes Rotary Club

and PEO Spirit Lake.

“Craft beer continues to grow in

popularity across the U.S. and definitely

in Iowa,” said Kathy Fahy of the

Iowa Great Lakes Rotary Club. “We’ve

been looking for an idea for a fundraiser

for our community projects and

I had been to a festival in Clear Lake

and saw how many people showed

up, so I threw out the idea and we ran

with it.”

Tickets will cost $45 for VIP, which

includes access to the festival an hour

early. General admission is $30 and

the festival runs from 1-4 p.m. Proceeds

go to the Rotary’s renovation

project at Shelby’s Playground at Elinor

Bedell State Park.

Fahy expects around 20 breweries to

provide some of their tasty beverages.

“We’ve partnered with Okoboji

Brewing and West O. We also have

About Rotary

The club members are dedicated people who share a passion for

both community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects

you with a diverse group of professionals who share your drive

to give back.

Rotary brings together a global network of volunteer leaders who dedicate

their time and talent to tackle the world’s most pressing humanitarian challenges.

Rotary connects 1.2 million members from more than 200 countries

and geographical areas. Their work impacts lives at both the local and international

levels.

Tractor Lift from Humboldt. It’s going

really well so far and ticket sales have

started to take off,” Fahy said.

Tickets sales are being capped at

600 in order to provide breweries with

a ballpark idea of how much beer to

bring.

Matt Matthiesen, owner of West O

Beer, won’t have to travel far to bring

his brewery’s concoctions to the park.

“We’re certainly looking forward to

not having to drive very far for a festival

this time and also being a sponsor

for this one,” Matthiesen said. “We really

feel like Okoboji is a big draw for

peole and this should be a lot of fun.

People can enjoy the brew fest and

make it into a long weekend.”

Having the festival at Central Park

gives visitors a wonderful view down

towards West

Lake Okoboji

and places it

right in the

center of the

action if people

do indeed

decide to

enjoy some

of the other

many activities

the Lakes

have to offer.

“We’re hoping

for a nice,

sunny day

and to enjoy

the beautiful

view and 80 craft

brews,” Fahy said.

“Central Park is a

great location with

high visibility and traffic

which will be enticing for

the brewers, too. We would

like to make this an annual

event as a fundraiser for our signature

projects.”

Matthiesen looks forward to much

of the same thing.

“People really appreciate a location

like Okoboji and hopefully we

can grow it to the point of being an

annual thing that people can look

forward to time and time

again,” Matthiesen

said. F

RYLAN HOWE | STAFF WRITER

It’s been a long journey. And one

that is not over yet.

David Strom is showing work

from across several decades in a new

exhibit at the Pearson Lakes Art Center

in Okoboji. “D.Strom: A 50 Year

Journey” will be up through Aug. 26

in the Monte Pearson Gallery.

Strom is from Windom, MN, and

attended the Minneapolis College of

Art & Design.

“This has been my life,” Strom said

at his exhibit’s opening reception.

“I’ve had a long full life in art that

started in junior high, or maybe a

little before. I just loved it and I still

do.”

The art on display traces Strom’s

evolution as an artist. Generally the

work is on a large scale, but there

are small pieces as well. Color. Black

and white. Acrylic paint. Pen and ink

drawings. Portraits. It’s all there.

“Art to me is playing. You get a

chance to play with things, materials

and ideas. As you play you discover.

At least that’s the way I work,” Strom

said. “I’ll play with one thing that

leads to another and another. I’ve

been very blessed to have a lifetime

of experiences and explorations and

moments.”

A black and white piece Strom

worked on shortly after art school

seemed like a jungle to him. That

inspired a series of “jungle” drawings

out of pen, ink and watercolor, that

also drew from the roadside market

where Strom sold plants and gardening

supplies.

“At a certain point after the jungle

drawings I decided that ‘I’m a trained,

serious artist and I need to do serious

David Strom currently has an exhibit on display at the Pearson Lakes Art

Center in Okoboji. It’s entitled, “D.Strom: A 50 Year Journey.” The exhibit

will be on display through Aug. 26. PHOTOS BY RYLAN HOWE

A LIFE in ART

David Strom showcases 50 years of work at PLAC

art,’” Strom said. “To me serious artists

make people see something around

them differently. They kind of try to

go around the corner and look at it

from the other side.”

That’s part of how shapes from his

jungle drawings have found their way

into more recent work. A triangle over

a rectangle can be a jungle hut or a

grain bin.

It’s all about perspective. Wind turbines

have also found their way into

Strom’s work. Or maybe, he says, they

could be the Mercedes symbol.

In the ’80s Strom did several large

abstract paintings which are also on

display in the exhibit.

Strom has also done hundreds of

portraits from photos in magazines

or sitting down with friends and even

strangers.

“I got through art school without

having to do faces or hands, so I

thought I should try to paint faces,”

Strom said. “It’s centuries-old joy for

an artist to sit with someone and talk

with them and try to copy their face.”

Throughout his 50-year journey,

Strom has met several other artists

and enjoyed every minute of it. He

will also be participating in The Artisans

Road Trip, which has a group

show in the Goodenow Gallery during

the same time frame as his exhibit

upstairs.

“There is such a strong community

of quality artists here in this area. It’s

been a real pleasure for me to get

to know so many of them so well,”

Strom said.

Guests can get to know Strom as

well through 50 years of work on display

at the Pearson Lakes Art Center. F

Snowmobiles

hit the water

Rivers Bend Shootout set for July 28-29

Summer is a time for snowmobiles.

While there might not be

snow to race on during these 90-degree

July days, there is water. And according

to Kelly Roder, the president

of the Sioux County Snowmobile

Club, riding on the water is challenging

for the snowmobiler and is a lot of

fun to watch.

There will be a chance for people

to do both at this year’s Rivers Bend

Shootout on Friday and Saturday,

July 28-29 on a pond at Rivers Bend

Campground in Rock Valley.

Roder is one of the event’s organizers.

“Basically it’s snowmobile racing

on water,” Roder said. “There will be a

mix of 8 different classes of snowmobiles

that will be doing drag racing or

oval racing.”

The Rivers Bend Shootout is in its

third year and is the only International

Watercross Association circuit

race that is held in Iowa.

“Three years ago we were looking

for some fundraiser ideas for the

snowmobile club and one of our

members had the idea to look into

the watercross. He had run into some

of the racers up in Minnesota and

thought it would be interesting,”

Roder said.

According to Roder, the IWA circuit

is very similar to NASCAR or even dirt

race tracks around northwest Iowa.

Racers accumulate points at each race

they attend and at the end of the season,

the points are totaled and places

are awarded. Each race usually has

cash prizes as well.

“This is really a professional show

with these guys,” Roder said. “It’s

amazing to watch. One of the racers

put it this way last year: “It’s an extreme

sport — something you’re not

supposed to be able to do so it’s exciting

to watch us not only doing it, but

racing other guys doing it.’”

Roder himself agrees.

“What is so unbelievable about

snowmobiles on water and what

makes it so interesting is that first of

all they are supposed to be able to

do that. People have heard of people

crossing a creek or pond, but these

racers are going 70 miles an hour in

nine feet of water running ovals or

laps. The talent of these guys is unbelievable,”

Roder said.

But not every race goes off without a

hitch.

Roder says that almost every oval

race they have one or two racers sink.

The snowmobile club has a pontoon

on site ready to rescue any sled that

goes underwater.

“We bring the sled out and these

guys can have that sled cleaned out

and running in 3-4 minutes,” Roder

said.

The seating for the event is either

in the stands or people are invited to

bring their own lawn chairs and enjoy

the natural stadium seating the sloped

banks of the pond have to offer.

There will also be four food vendors

at the Rivers Bend Shootout and the

Iowa Snowmobile Association will be

there with a snowmobile ride simulator.

The racers will be available to do

autographs.

Enjoying a weekend by the water

sounds like a fun summer treat, but

add in the uniqueness of snowmobiles

racing on the water in July, and it

makes the weekend one not to miss. F

History lesson

Hike the Wild to delve into Spirit Lake Massacre

Two sites hold particular historical

significance in Dickinson

County.

They both will be explored during

the next Hike the Wild event on Tuesday,

July 25.

Pillsbury Point State Park and the

Abbie Gardner Cabin are the points

of interest during the event, which

begins at 9:30 a.m.

Participants will meet at the Dickinson

County Nature Center, located at

2279 170th St. in rural Okoboji, and

caravan to the sites in Arnolds Park.

Pillsbury Point was the location of

the Spirit Lake Massacre in 1857 in

which 40 settlers were killed and four

women were taken hostage by the

Dakota tribe.

Graves for several victims, a monument,

the Abbie Gardner Cabin and

a small museum that interprets what

went on during the Spirit Lake Massacre

all are adjacent to the park.

The park was named after the Rev.

Samuel Pillsbury, who owned the

property in the 1860s.

“During this hike, people will

be able to see the Abbie Gardner

Cabin and learn about the cultural

significance of the Spirit Lake Massacre,”

said Bryanna Kuhlman, environmental

education coordinator for

the Dickinson County Conservation

Board. “Hikers will also be able to

enjoy a nice walk along the lake.”

The Abbie Gardner Cabin is located

on the site where the original Gardner

Cabin stood during the Spirit Lake

Massacre.

Abbie Gardner was 13 years old in

1857 when she was taken hostage by

the Dakota Indian nation.

Years after being released, she returned

to Arnolds Park in 1891 and

purchased the cabin, operating it as

one of Iowa’s earliest tourist attractions.

Kuhlman has visited the cabin, and

she was impressed.

“I really enjoy that we are able to

have an original painting from Abbie

Gardner that depicts what she saw

during the event,” she said. “

Our documents at the museum do

a wonderful job of interpreting the

site.”

the Dickinson County Nature

Center’s next Hike the Wild event on

Pillsbury Point State Park in Arnolds

Park is the smallest state

park in Iowa, measuring in at

only about six-and-a-half acres.

The narrow, urban park extends

along a point of land into West

Lake Okoboji, and the overlook at

the north end of the park was listed

on the National Register of Historic

Places in 1990.

The historic designation includes

walkways along the lake, stone

steps, stone benches and property

Second City

The Second City opened

its doors on a snowy Chicago

night in December 1959, and it

has since grown to become the

world’s premier comedy club,

theatre and school of improvisation,

with live shows every night in

Chicago, Toronto and Hollywood.

Bernard Sahlins; Howard Alk

and Paul Sills, son of teacher

Viola Spolin, founded the theatre

as a place where scenes and

story were created improvisationally,

using techniques that grew

out of the innovative techniques

Spolin developed and taught.

The Second City chose its selfmocking

name from the title of an

article about Chicago by A.J. Liebling

that appeared in “The New

Yorker” in 1952.

Andrew Alexander and his

recently deceased partner, Len

Stuart, acquired The Second City

in 1987. Under his helm of The

Second City, Alexander has produced

television programs in both

the United States and Canada,

including “SCTV,” “Second City

Presents” and “Next Comedy

Legends.”

Since its debut, The Second

City has been a launching pad for

comedians, actors, directors and

others working in show business.

Notable alumni include Alan Arkin,

Dan Aykroyd, James Belushi,

John Belushi, John Candy, Steve

Carell, Stephen Colbert, Rachel

Dratch, Chris Farley, Tina Fey, Jeff

Garlin, Ian Gomez, Bonnie Hunt,

Richard Kind, Eugene Levy, Jane

The list goes on and on, and it has a

common thread.

Each famous actor or actress performed

with The Second City at some

point early in their comedic careers.

The Chicago-based sketch and

improvisational ensemble has long

been a staple at the Pearson Lakes Art

Center in Okoboji, and this summer

makes no exception.

The group will perform “We’re All

in This Room Together” at 8 p.m.

Saturday, July 29, in the Lauridsen

Performing Arts Center.

Full of live and in-your-face entertainment

Netflix can’t provide, the

show features improvised comedy,

audience interaction and of-the-moment

sketches and songs.

Amanda Schindler, performing arts

director at PLAC, watched The Second

City perform during its stop in Okoboji

last summer, and she encourages

all to attend this year’s showing.

“I thought the performance was

very funny, and I’ve always liked

improv comedy — one, because it’s

comedy; two, because I love theatre,

so I enjoyed it very thoroughly,” she

said. “I thought they did a very good

job with their performance, and I felt

that they connected very well with the

audience.”

The Second City has been performing

at PLAC for a number of years, and

Schindler said the cast

provides a new take

each time they visit

Okoboji.

What’s more, they’re

second to none when

it comes to comedy

and improv.

“They’re of a caliber

that everyone can expect

to be of a really

high quality, so people

get the bang for their buck. They

have their reputation behind them,”

Schindler said. “A lot of students with

The Second City have gone on to ‘SNL’

(“Saturday Night Live”), or they skip

that step and go on to be even bigger

and better.”

So, come out and participate in the

sketch during this special one night

engagement.

You surely won’t be disappointed.

After all, the chances are good you

could be witnessing the next “SNL”

cast members, stand-up comedy legends

or big screen comedy stars in the

making. F

Heart-felt story laced with humor

Doyen and Cleary perfect in leading roles at OST’s new show

There’s a new truth to be learned

each time you experience “On

Golden Pond.”

It could be the first time or the fifth

time you’ve seen the show, yet you

will catch glimpses of human relationships

that you hadn’t noticed the

first time around.

A well-written story is like that.

The nuances of the dialogue hit you

differently at different times. An unexpected

emotion may tug at your

heart as you see a bit of a parent or

grandparent in Norman and Ethel,

a tear may make its way down your

cheek as you see yourself in Chelsea or

Billy. Perhaps it’s the minor character

Charles that you relate to, who has

carried a torch for the same girl for

40 years, who takes you back to your

adolescence.

The lead characters Norman and

Ethel are in the autumn years of their

lives, returning to their summer home

on Golden Pond in the middle of

May. The story follows them through

the remaining months of summer, as

they struggle with health issues and

family issues.

At a Glance:

WHAT: “On Golden Pond”

WHERE: Okoboji Summer Theatre,

Highway 71, Spirit Lake

WHEN: Tuesday –Saturday evenings

8 p.m., Saturday matinee

4:30 p.m., Sunday evening 6 p.m.

COST: $18

CONTACT: (712) 332-7773

Rob Doyen and Brigid Cleary

carry the weight of the show, present

for nearly every moment of the

play. Their dialogue is perfect and

well-timed, but it is their actions

that make things really click for the

show. Norman eases seamlessly from

quick-witted to confused, so that at

first the audience can’t sense when

he is being ornery, and when he’s

becoming forgetful.

Ethel has a sparkle in her eye that

lets you know how dearly she loves

this cabin in the woods. She chases

bugs away all summer long — first

flies, then mosquitoes, then moths

and eventually even a daddy-longlegs

spider. What mother or grandmother

hasn’t gone a little nuts trying

to keep the bugs away as visitors

enter and forget to close the front

door behind them?

The contrasts between Norman

and Ethel are another reason their

relationship seems real. Norman lacks

focus — he’s just a little lost these days

and needs to feel safe by staying in

comfortable surroundings. He moves

slowly and settles into a comfortable

chair with a book or a newspaper.

Ethel, on the other hand, scurries

about their lakeside cabin. She

marvels at the loons on the lake out

the window, rushes outdoors with

a bucket to pick strawberries, keeps

coffee and cookies coming from the

kitchen, and decorates for a birthday

party. Her energy is non-stop.

Ethel calls Norman an “old poop”

while Norman repeatedly mutters

the words “good god.” Somehow you

know they’ve both been saying those

things for years.

The estranged father-daughter

relationship between Norman and

Chelsea is hinted about when they

learn she is coming to visit. Delainey

Phillips, the only Stephens College

student in the cast, fills that role.

When Chelsea arrives she brings her

fiancé Bill and his son Billy. Surprisingly,

cranky Norman hits it off with

the outspoken teenager. They bond

over fishing and books. Billy enjoys

using swear words to see how adults

will respond. Norman is unphased,

and that helps the two of them get off

to a good start.

In between all the humor and irony,

there are some very tender moments.

A personal favorite was Norman saying

how pretty Ethel is, even after all

these years.

Completing the cast are Scott Kuiper

as Bill, and Andrew Stachurski

as Charles, the mail man. You will

immediately remember him as “the

nerd” from earlier this summer. You

will find yourself thinking “holy macinoli”

as you witness the ease with

which he brings his character to life.

OST’s artistic director Gail

Humphries Mardirosian serves as the

director for the show. She is assisted

by Abigayle Huggins as stage manager

and David Hall as assistant stage

manager. Kirsten Buchanan designs

costumes (love those socks on Billy)

and Justin Hoffecker handles lighting.

The scene design was created

by Andrew Holland, completing a

lakeside cabin with an open staircase,

wood paneled walls, a rickety

screen door and props like lanterns

and duck decoys. The ever-changing

lights on the scrim behind the trees

outside the cabin’s windows help

show the passage of time.

After a scary heart episode, the

show ends with Norman and Ethel

planning for the future and their next

summer at the lake. But you can’t help

wondering if this may have been their

last one spent together at the little

cabin.

Just like Okoboji, Golden Pond is a

special place and one worth holding

onto.

Catch a performance before it’s

too late. Classics like this don’t come

around every year. F

PIONEER DAYS

Pioneers had to trek mile upon mile to claim the land where Milford is

today.

With all their hard work and dedication, it’s no wonder the community

wanted to establish a festival in their honor.

However, this year’s celebration comes with a twist.

The Dickinson County community also is celebrating its quasquicentennial,

and Milford is commemorating its 125th birthday by holding a

weeklong bevy of events, Monday-Sunday, July 17-23.

If you don’t

have time for

everything

this weekend.

HERE’S OUR

SUGGESTIONS

OF WHERE

YOU SHOULD

START.

1

DON’T MISS IT! BEACH YOGA

Watching sun’s rays climb across the sky. Hearing the waves gently

lapping the sandy shore. Sounds like the recipe for a peacefully perfect

way to start the day.

But the people at the Dickinson County Nature Center have a

suggestion for another ingredient to add to make the morning even

more amazing.

Yoga.

This summer, the Dickinson County Conservation Board is offering

people the opportunity to experience this firsthand with Beach

Yoga at 7 a.m. on the first and third Wednesdays of the month for

July and August. The classes will take place on the shores of Big

Spirit Lake at Ainsworth-Orleans Beach.

ELEPHANT AND

PIGGIE

A pachyderm and a pig.

It may be an unlikely pairing,

but it is a friendship

that comes to life on the

stage next week at Boji

Bantam Children’s Theatre

in Okoboji.

“Elephant and Piggie:

We Are in a Play!” will run

from July 19-22 on the Boji Bantam stage in Okoboji. Tickets cost just

$5 and shows start at 10:30 a.m.

The musical is based on the beloved and best-selling children’s

books by Mo Willems.

DOON 125

Doon is preparing for a big birthday bash in July.

The community is celebrating its 125th anniversary — also known as

a quasquicentennial — this year from July 23-29.

The Lyon County city of nearly 600 people was incorporated in 1892

along the Rock River.

COWBOY MOUTH

Live at the Lake welcomes back the New Orleans-based rock Cowboy

Mouth on Saturday, July 22 at 7:30 p.m. at Preservation Plaza. The

group has toured the country for more than 20 years, performing thousands

of concerts in front of millions of fans.
