Fish decoys on display at Sheldon

These 60 fish can float but they
""I can't breathe.
A display of ice-fishing decoys
. will be featured beginning Tuesday
through Jan. 7 at Sheldon Memorial
The wooden decoys, ranging from
large to small, realistic to abstract,
can be traced to the late 1800s.
Courtney McKenzie, intern at the
Sheldon Gallery, stjid the Native
Americans created the decoys to lure
fish to the hole they had cut in the ice.
The decoys were moved up and down
in the water, imitating the motion of
fish in distress.
As fish were attracted to the de
coys, they were speared, she said.
This tradition was passed to the early
American settlers of Michigan, Min
nesota and Wisconsin.
The decorative and visual charac
teristics of these hand-carved fish
decoys have been a fundamental as
pect of the craft, McKenzie said.
“I think they arc interesting be
cause each one is so different,”
Each decoy has its own character,
some resembling real fish, such as
bass and perch, and some showing
color and forni unlike real fish. The
abstract decoys may be white w ith red
polka dots, for example.
The lost tradition of these lures and
the skill required to make them is*
what brought them to their stature of
folk art today, McKenzie said.
Because spearfishing is illegal in
most states, McKenzie said, the inter
est in decoys began to shift toward a
folk art collector’s item.
Th is col lection of decoys was given
to the gallery to exhibit by Mr. and
Mrs. John Bcrggrucn of San Fran

able lo pull this off by using her
familiar dance sound and by adding in
some TcxXMex beats.
Everyone knows Madonna can do
some crazy things, but sometimes
people seem to forget about the raw
singing ability she possesses.
Madonna slows it down on “Bad
Girl” and shows the world shccan still
bell out the ballads.
“Rain” is the best ballad on
“Erotica” and one of the better cuts
overall. This song will make the lis
tener wonder: “How can Madonna
make music like this, and yet be so
weird ai the same lime?”
What makes “Erotica” such a good
album is the fact that Madonna is able
to appeal to everybody. There is mu
sic here for the house music fan, there
is music for the ballad seekers, and
there is even music here for the hip
“Waiting” is one of those cuts on
the hip-hop tip in which Madonna lets
the beat work to her advantage. She is
able to work the listener with her off
beat seductive raps.
“Did You Do It” is an extension of
“Waiting” where Madonna employs
some rappers who talk about “hillin’
it and splittin’ it.”
“Secret Garden” is the last cut on
“Erotica” and it is a fitting ending to
ihc latest chapter of one of the greatest
pop artist of our time.
Overall, “Erotica” is one of the
best LPs Madonna has ever made.
People seem to get down on Madonna
for being weird, but if nobody was to
ever see her and just hear her music,
they would think Madonna was a
genius. Nevertheless, she is a genius.
Madonna is able to pull her music
together and give the listening audi
ence something that has been void for
the last few albums.
So for all the people out there who
think that Madonna is loo weird to
buy, don’t worry, it’s your loss not

Like reading a critical article be
fore reading a novel, it can be useful
to read about a “Star Trek: TNG”
episode before viewing the same, for
there is so much more going on than
may first meet the eye.
The most scrutinizing viewers will
find enough detailed material in this
book to be pleased, yet there is enough
general information to reward the less
committed viewer without being
drowned in trivia.
Whether one is a hard-core Trck
ker or the uncertain recipient of an
unrequested gift, “Star Trek: TNG
Companion” is a valuable compen
dium of facts and history that can add
a great deal to the enjoyment to all
viewers of “Star Trek: TNG.”
