Tax Day 2012 It’s time to file your federal income tax forms, but you’ll have a couple of extra days to do so. April 15th falls on Sunday and Monday is a holiday in Washington D.C. On April 16th, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Compensated Emancipation Act for the release of slaves held in the District of Columbia. The Act freed about 3,100 people nine months before President Lincoln issued his famous Emancipation Proclamation. This Act made DC residents the "First Freed" by the federal government. Emancipation Day celebrations were held annually from 1866 through 1901, and resumed in 2002. In 2005 Emancipation Day was made an official public holiday in the District of Columbia. Because Emancipation Day falls on Monday, April 16th, and April 15th falls on a Sunday, the tax deadline will be on Tuesday, April 17th.

New Tower Regulations During this year’s legislative session, new regulations were approved and signed into law affecting towers with guy wires which are over fifty feet in height. The purpose of this law is to protect low flying aircraft such as crop-dusters from the danger of guy wires. While pilots usually see or know where towers are, guy wires are all but invisible. When a plane hits a guy wire, it cuts through the wing like a knife through butter. To be affected by this law, the tower must be outside an incorporated city and in a rural or undeveloped area. If the tower is over fifty feet in height (as measured from the original grade at the base of the tower), it must be painted with alternating bands of orange and white, have a flashing light at the top, and have maker balls attached to the guy wires. In addition to these requirements, the ground under the tower and six

feet beyond the guy wire anchor points, must have a contrasting appearance to the surrounding vegetation. All new towers will have to be constructed in compliance with this law. Existing towers that are in violation of this law will have one year to come into compliance. Last July, a similar ordinance was enacted in Gooding county. This ordinance (number 103) regulates towers between one hundred feet in height and the minimum height for FAA regulations. While the marking requirements are almost identical with the state law, the Gooding ordinance affects all towers, not just towers with guy wires. After the state law was signed, a number of ham-radio operators complained that it did not take into account situations where existing trees were higher than 50 feet. Because of this, legislators may modify this law next year, but that is no guarantee.

Blaine County is Healthiest in Idaho, According to New Rankings South Central Public Health District press release TWIN FALLS – Blaine County has the healthiest residents in Idaho, and Shoshone County remains the least healthy county in the state according to the third annual County Health Rankings released today by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). According to the Rankings, residents of

Shoshone have more than double the number of premature deaths than residents of Blaine County. The County Health Rankings rank the overall health of nearly every county in all 50 states, using a standard way to measure how healthy people are and how long they live. This year’s Rankings include several new measures, such as how many fast food restaurants are in a county and levels of physical inactivity among residents.

According to the 2012 Rankings, the five healthiest counties in Idaho (starting with most healthy) are Blaine, slightly surpassing Madison which was the highest ranking county in 2012; followed by Latah, Franklin, and Valley. The five counties in the poorest health (starting with least healthy) are Shoshone, Payette, Gooding, Bearlake, and Butte. “Communities should celebrate their continued on page 9.....

Hope & Help for Domestic Violence While most of us like to think we would never harm someone we love, the pressures of life can sometimes turn a simple disagreement into a dangerous altercation. It is easy to tell someone in this kind of situation to “just get out,” but for those involved in abusive relationships, it is seldom that easy. Compounding all of this is well meaning friends and family who enable or ignore domestic violence, even when the problem is clearly visible. Whether you are perpetrator, a victim, or a concerned bystander, there is something you can do... attend the Seminar of Hope & Help to be held in April at Helping Hearts & Hands. The seminar will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, April 21st, at 237 Main Street (across from Gem Vet). There is a fee of $10, but scholarships are available.

Roasted Asparagus This is my favorite way to cook fresh asparagus. You can also use different oils and seasonings. Try sesame oil and sesame seeds.

Asparagus Season is Coming Soon... Jane Deal - plainjanecooking.com

I can feel it in my bones... It’s almost here. The signs of spring are evident when I look outside. Howling winds and dark clouds turn into sunny skies over and over again as the grasses begin to turn green and the bulbs start to sprout from the soil. It’s going to be coming up any minute! I just know it! Wild asparagus, that is. I remember my first spring in Idaho in 1994, I was 27 years old. My aunt, Patsy, asked me if I would like to hunt for wild asparagus. Now, for a city girl, that concept alone was hard to comprehend. I had never seen the vegetable unless it was wrapped together in a neatly trimmed bundle at the grocery store. That afternoon, we started walking beneath a beautiful, cloudy sky on old country roads at the edge of the farmland. Patsy showed me how to spot the sprouted little gems and I have never been the same! We hunted for what seemed like hours that day. I remember her telling me not to pick the more yellow tinted asparagus. I thought it was because that meant dogs had relieved themselves on it. She later told me those spears were probably exposed to weed spray and laughed at my naivete for several minutes. The skies started to open up during that first hunt and it began to rain. I don’t even remember realizing it was raining until we arrived home. We had been so focused on finding the bounty and we had been successful. Hanging on our arms were shopping bags full of the lovely green stalks.We came into the house and immediately began to cook the asparagus. The flavors were incredible and I was hooked! Over the years I have talked to a lot of people during my hunts. I always have someone say to me, “Now why would you want to eat ditch weed?” Ditch weed?! I get perturbed at first, but then I always realize that just means more for me. I don’t think the asparagus could be categorized as a weed, but it does usually grow in the ditches. If the nickname helps turn some off to asparagus, I’m ok with that too and so are my adversaries. Or should I say, my fellow “ditch weed enthusiasts”. I’ve also had years when I was too busy to hunt or maybe just didn’t allow myself the time to do so. There is nothing sadder than going down the old roads and spotting the asparagus past its prime. The spears have sprouted out and are no longer edible. It’s like showing up to a party too late and the magic is gone. It will be another year before spring’s treasure shows up again. However, it’s not too late this year! My head moves from side to side down the farm roads as I look for the first sign that the hunt is on. So for those of you that don’t appreciate ditch weed, to each his own... And for those of you who find the weed a delicacy, game on!

10-12 asparagus spears 2 tsp olive oil salt and pepper Set oven to 375o. Wash the spears and dry them off with a towel. Snap the tougher ends off and discard them. Place asparagus spears in a large plastic bag with a zipper, and add oil, salt and pepper. Close the bag and shake it to coat the asparagus with the oil. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the asparagus has started to brown. Serve immediately.

The End of the World On Tuesday, April 10, as part of CSI’s mid-winter lecture series, CSI Anthropology professor, Jim Woods, will present “Coming December 2012: The End of the World.” Woods will present and clarify the commonly-held belief that the world will end on December 21, 2012, an important date on the Mayan calendar, but not to predict the end of time. Woods will present what is behind the rumor and what the modern Maya and archaeologists have to say about it. Woods is a Professor of Anthropology at CSI. His studies of the ancient Maya started while in high school, when he worked for Norman Herrett and had access to the famed Herrett Collection of Mesoamerican Artifacts. Woods earned his MA from Idaho State University in Anthropology in 1987. His first fieldwork in the Maya area was in 1992 where he studied ancient Maya stone working and architecture. Woods was the Director of the Herrett Center from 1980 until 2009. He is on the Idaho Humanities Council Speakers Bureau, and was awarded the Outstanding Achievement in the Humanities in 1998 by the IHC and a Professional Achievement Award, College of Arts & Sciences, Idaho State University in 2006.

Cup of Tee

My daughter and granddaughter have been running almost before they could crawl. My daughter would go fifty miles an hour without shoes and the granddaughter a hundred with shoes. To see her throw her little feet up and say “Shoes! Shoes!” is pretty priceless. To her shoes is an important part of her life. She feels good with pretty shoes on. If they are not tied, they need to be because it adds security to her. When she goes somewhere, she needs plenty of shoes. If she falls asleep in the car and loses a shoe it has to be found. For someone near the three foot mark, she notices the shoes you have on. She will tell you if they are pretty, dirty, or torn. I can blame her mom and mima ((grandma) for her love of shoes. From the time she was born, they have given her the updated look of comfort, necessity, and some style. To a man, three pairs of shoes should suffice: one pair for Sunday church going, one pair to work in, and a pair of house slippers for in between. But now that I am older, more than one pair of shoes is a good thing. First and foremost of importance, is that it allows you to get one pair completely dry. This reduces foot odor from damp shoes. More shoes mean you buy shoes less often. Instead of wearing one pair out instantly, you wear only a little bit at a time for a long time. Several pairs of shoes keep you healthier. I know that it doesn’t sound right but you couldn’t convince me of that earlier. If your feet are comfortable, so are you. If your feet are cold, you will be also. When they are too hot body compensates to cool. Good comfortable shoes have less back and leg strain, therefore you don’t hurt as much. Humans can adapt to many environments if you have the shoes to match. That is one of the reasons Idaho people are not affected by weather changes as other people in other states. We prepare for it with our shoes. In short, one does not go skiing with high heels and you don’t swim with snowshoes on. You may not be able to go anywhere, but with the right shoes you can be anywhere. I have seen my granddaughter follow an adult around a mud puddle. Then I have seen her go around and look at it from the other side. Then she runs and jumps right in the middle of it. To see her size up the puddle was pure ingenious. She was using her little baby math skills to calculate the puddles volume. Looking back, I can see I was wrong she wasn’t measuring the puddle, but evaluating the shoes. Pretty Clever! Sometimes little shoes are the hardest to fill :) Shoes are the first adult machines we are given to master. Cinderella is proof that a good pair of shoes can change your life. “This is my Cup of Tee” with foot notes on shoes.

...but never Compromising the Truth.

National Healthcare Law Under Fire The legislation commonly known as “Obamacare” finally made it to the U.S. Supreme Court last week. All indications are that they have made a decision, but it is unlikely that we will know what that decision is until June. The biggest part of this law that has not gone into effect, and the main reason this issue was at the Supreme Court, is the individual mandate to purchase health insurance. Based on the oral arguments, it appears that the court will declare that part of the healthcare law unconstitutional because it forces people to buy a product. If this provision is left in place, the government could (according to the court) force people to buy all kinds of things like cellphones and certain types of food. The unconstitutionality of mandated insurance is no surprise to anyone. The effect of removing that part of the law, however, is uncertain. This law has been in effect for nearly two years. Insurance costs (at least in some areas) have dramatically increased because of certain regulations. States have been dealing with things like insurance exchanges. The program to help people with preexisting conditions is also available. What happens to all of this (the good and the bad) if the entire law is thrown out? The Solicitor General argued that (if the mandated insurance is removed) the rest of the law should remain in effect because throwing out the whole law would cause too many problems. The opponents argued that without mandated insurance, there is no mechanism to fund the remaining programs. The more important issue (for the court) is that this law was passed without a clear provision for severability. Most laws are written in such a way to make the individual sections independent of the whole, just in case one part has a problem. This law, to put it bluntly, was an “all or nothing” proposition. It was suggested that the court could go through the law and determine what was good and what was bad. The court responded by saying it was unreasonable to ask the court to review 2700 pages. Furthermore, asking the court to delve into the nuts & bolts of any law would grossly overstep the court’s authority, and would amount to “judicial activisim.” While there is no shortage of political discussion over the ramifications of what the court’s decision might be, one thing is for certain - the confidence that this law will survive in any meaningful form has been shaken.

Health Idaho Counties continued strengths and build on them, while also acknowledging their challenges and taking steps to improve them,” says Rene LeBlanc, South Central Public Health District Director, “Whether at the top of the list, in the middle, or at the bottom, we all must work together to lift the barriers to good health.” The Rankings, available at www.countyhealthrankings.org, includes a snapshot of each county in Idaho with a color-coded map comparing each county’s overall health ranking. Researchers used five measures to assess the level of overall health or “health outcomes” for Idaho by county: the rate of people dying before age 75, the percent of people who report being in fair or poor health, the numbers of days people report being in poor physical and poor mental health, and the rate of low-birth weight infants. The Rankings also consider factors that affect people’s health within four categories: health behavior, clinical care, social and economic factors, and physical environment. “The County Health Rankings show us that much of what influences our health happens outside of the doctor’s office. In fact, where we live, learn, work, and play has a big role in determining how healthy we are and how long we live,” said Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, M.D., M.B.A., president and CEO of RWJF. “The good news is that businesses, health care providers, government, consumers, and community leaders are already joining forces in communities across the nation to change some of the gaps that the Rankings highlight.” The County Health Rankings illustrate what we know when it comes to what’s making people sick or healthy. To learn what other communities are doing to improve the health of their residents and how your county can develop plans to address health challenges, visit www.countyhealthrankings.org/roadmaps.
