05/20/2019 12:47pm

On May 20, Boise City Council President Lauren McLean filed paperwork to run for mayor. Boise City Council President Lauren McLean has filed to run for mayor of the City of Boise.

That said, McLean insisted that her decision to run was quite recent. If youd asked me six weeks ago, Id have said, I dont know, she said. In filing, McLean has launched a direct challenge to incumbent Mayor Dave Bieter, who has also filed for re-election, and who hand-picked McLean to sit on the city council in 2011. Since then, McLean has been re-elected twice and helped spearhead several high-profile city initiatives, including in the arenas of open spaces, livability and the welcoming city resolution.

05/20/2019 8:43am

Morehouse College seniors receive a stunning graduation present, the FAA investigates an Owyhee County plane crash, Eurovision picks a new winner, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire gets canceled and Pringles will pay someone $10,000 if they can guess the mystery flavor of its new potato chip. Some commencement addresses are a lot more memorable than others. Take for instance Sundays graduation at Morehouse College in Atlanta. Graduates erupted with joy when their commencement speaker, billionaire Robert Smith, announced that his family would pay off the student debt of the entire graduating class of 396 students. CNN reports that Smith founded Vista Equity Partners, and ultimately became one of the wealthiest African Americans in U.S. history. Morehouse employees were still scrambling this morning to calculate the total student loan debt of the Class of 2019. According to published figures, recent Morehouse classes graduated with roughly $10 million in debt, but officials think the figure could be considerably higher this year. Speaking of commencement, the Treasure Valley will enter a busy high school graduation season this week. Boises Timberline High School will hold its graduation today at the Morison Center, and Caldwell High School will hold its commencement this afternoon at the Idaho Center in Nampa. The Federal Aviation Administration and National Traffic Safety Board are investigating the crash of a single-engine plane Sunday afternoon near Givens Hot Springs in Owyhee County. Law enforcement said the planes sole occupant, a man in his 70s, was killed in the crash. No word yet on his identity. The plane crashed shortly after takeoff at the Sunrise Skypark Airport. The National Weather Service has confirmed that the last 12 months have been the wettest 12-month period in recorded American history. Eurovision, the planets biggest singing competition with a global television audience of 200 million, wrapped up this weekend, and Arcade, a ballad from the Netherlands, won first prize. A number of singers have been catapulted to fame after singing winning songs in previous Eurovision competitions, including ABBA and Celine Dion. Variety reports that Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, which has aired nearly 3,000 episodes since the late 1990s, has been canceled. Pringles is selling a new flavor of potato chip, but it wants you to figure out what the flavor is. In fact, Food & Wine magazine says the person who correctly identifies the unknown chip variety could win $10,000. Food & Wine editors guess that the chips could be flavored with anything from grilled cheese to ballpark nachos.

Boise Artist Camilla Dahlin's Work Inspires a Four-Course Meal
05/18/2019 9:00am

The dinner, a partnership with Camels Crossing and Figgy Bakes, will take place Monday, May 20, at 6:30 p.m. Instead of dinner and a show, a Monday, May 20, affair at Camels Crossingin Boises North End will be dinner and a showcase. The three-course meal from Brian Ferris, the wine bars new chef, will be paired not only with pastries and a dessert course from local confectioner Figgy Bakes but a signature work of art by Camilla Dahlinwhose work is credited for inspiring the rest of the event. We had an initial meeting where we talked about ideas and went over some logistics, and then I pulled my inspiration from whatevers going on in my world, said Dahlin, a soft-spoken hairdresser- and actress-turned-artist who works in watercolor and India ink. .... Those conversations helped get ideas going, and then I sent the inspiration, just a description of the inspiration behind the painting that Ill be showcasing, to them and they were able to work with that. The partners are calling the 30-seat event the Art Inspired Dinner, and Dahlin will be the star of the show. The work behind it, an enhanced play on the nights simple black-and-white logo pictured above, will hang on the wall overlooking the diners as they eat, and at the end of the mealwhich includes dishes like Caesar salad with boquerones anchovies, grilled octopus and spring vegetables, fennel-rubbed pork tenderloin and deconstructed chocolate torte, all paired with wineit will be auctioned off, with proceeds benefiting the Womens and Childrens Alliance. While the design looks simple, Dahlin said there is a lot of meaning behind those two lines. Its one curved line and then one line thats kind of more rigid I guess, or more angled, so its really combining the kind of softness of femininity and then the masculine energy for a balancing of energies, basically, and creating unity and oneness, she said, adding that so far, everyone who has seen the abstract image has interpreted it differently. As for how the logo will be enhanced for the nights signature art piece, Dahlin is keeping that under wraps until the dinner. At the end of the event, each guest will get their own miniature reproduction of the artwork to take home to remember it by, as well as a goody bag of artisan breakfast pastries from Figgy Bakes. This wont be Dahlins first collaboration with Figgy she and bakery owner Katy Vestal have been friends for more than a decade, and have partnered
