Cambodia, stinky lakes, Sarah Day, Taste of Tibet in the June 11 issue of Isthmus

What can you find in this week's Isthmus ? Highlights from the latest issue follow:

  • Peace Corps volunteer Terry McCoy writes from Cambodia on the ties between refugees now in Madison and the relatives they left behind.

  • Watchdog reports on a little old lady who lost her house insurance because she had the unmitigated gall to need it.

  • Joe Tarr looks at the latest plan to do something about the stench and pollution in Madison's lakes.

  • Christian Schneider wonders about how electing new and presumably younger faces may change the Wisconsin Legislature.

  • Jennifer Smith profiles Sarah Day, the veteran American Players Theatre actress who works magic onstage.

  • Andy Moore previews the Brink Lounge performance by the Jazz Tellers, the Berklee College-based combo whose young sax man is a Middleton High grad.

  • Jay Rath reports that Children's Theatre of Madison has purchased Madison Rep's costumes, props and sets and is renting them to local troupes.

  • Jessica Steinhoff talks to Joseph O'Connell, the Indiana folkie who performs as Elephant Micah and is opening for The Handsome Family.

  • Dean Robbins says HBO's True Blood is the vampire series you'll want to watch this summer.

  • Kenneth Burns finds the French spy spoof OSS 117: Lost in Rio funny but problematic, while not even Michael Caine can save the excessive vigilante drama Harry Brown.

  • Kyle Nabilcy finds that Taste of Tibet is the kind of homey ethnic bistro State Street could use more of.

  • Marcelle Richards takes a bit of a shortcut on the way to fulfilling her chocolate-bacon croissant fantasy, but that's okay.

  • Tell All provides relief for a bad case of hemorrhoids.
