You can finally watch TV again
- The Simpsons are back with
a new season, beginning tonight
at 8 on the Fox network
(Channels 36 and 50 in Ann
Arbor). In tonight's episode,
Homer gets locked in an insane
asylum with a 300-pound white
guy who thinks he's Michael
Jackson. Brilliant. But we really
can't wait for the upcoming
episode in which Jackie Mason
does the voice of Krusty the
clown's rabbi father.

Ruth Kraut, who works at the
Ecology Center, has done a magnifi-
cent job rearranging and supple-
menting the original 1976 edition.
Two whole new sections have been
added, one concentrating on outly-
ing towns like Manchester and
Chelsea and the other laying out
three walks in Ann Arbor along the
Huron River.
But the real jewels of this col-
lection are the sections on Ann
Arbor and on the county's park and
recreation areas. "Sometimes,"
Kraut writes, "people in Ann Arbor
may feel that its inhabitants are so
transient that Ann Arbor has no
history. The walks in the Ann
Arbor section... are meant to dispel
this particular ignorance."
And dispel it they do - with a
vengeance. On the central campus
walk, you'll learn about the

dyeing her materials is in keeping
with the control ith which she
weaves and arranges her composi-
tions. This control, she states, is just
her way of approaching the whole
process, and is not present because
precision is necessarily needed in
weaving. "People do a lot of things
with fiber," she says. "I am basi-
cally incredibly controlled."
O'Toole does have a passion,
however, for the unique and precious

vers are choosing to use. These

The University Museum of Art

Our 1991/92
ConcertMakers Season

University's first days in Ann
Arbor in the 1830s, when Mason
Hall housed all of the classrooms, a
chapel, both the library and the mu-
seum collections, and a dormitory
for the seven boarding students.
Walks through Ann Arbor's down-
town recall its German roots and
trace its frequently chaotic, often
heartless development. And the
jaunt up to Sunset Lookout offers a
stunning, easily accessible overlook
of the entire city.
For truly spectacular views,
there is no parallel to the 11 walks
in the parks and recreation section.
Introduced with a short, easy-to-use
explanation of Washtenaw's geo-
logical and natural history, these
walks are the best in the entire col-
lection. Here, you'll discover Bird
Hills Park, a getaway only a stone's
throw from the downtown but
miles away from its hustle and bus-
tIe. Like similar short walks near
the downtown included in Foot-
loose, such as Saginaw Forest or
Marshall Park, Bird Hills offers a
natural experience with few dis-

turbances and even fewer - if any
Illustrated with helpful maps as
well as drawings and sketches, the
walks in Footloose are both fun and
educational, thanks to Kraut's de-
tailed catalogue of both what eco-
logical habitats dominate each walk
* and, by extension, what particularly
unique life forms await the walker.
Footloose is only an.introduc-
tion to Washtenaw's human and
natural treasures, and that is the
book's merit. Those calling them-
selves hikers instead of walkers
might want to consult Jim
DuFresne's Fifty Hikes in Lower
Michigan for extensive coverage of
trails in the beautiful Pinckney Re-
creational Area, such as the Silver
Trail or the Crooked Lake Trail;
Footloose, however, is the kind of
fun, fact-filled book that first turns
couch potatoes into walkers. Pick it
up and you might be a hiker some-
day, too. You'll certainly be a
hooked walker - I guarantee it.
-Mike Fischer

One of her works, available at
the Ann Arbor Art Association, is a
stunning piece of a silvery weave in-
terlaced with gauzy copper and
black ribbon, shot through with sil-
ver dowels. Mounted on a black
background, it is a work of impres-
sive presence. The woven strips of
cloth shimmer with metallic
threads and provide the one element
of abandon which O'Toole allows in
her works: strands of threads are set
loose from the weave and flow out
from and across the composition in
waves of movement. The threads re-
lax the symmetry of the work, as do
the uneven ends of the dowels, rib-
bons and woven material.
Still, the precision of the loom is
apparent in her works. But

O'Toole's human involvement is
also felt, her weaver's hands are
sensed arranging and creating. And
in the Ann Arbor area, the presence
of the artist is gladly welcomed.
