Prosecutor won’t charge Sun Valley employees Nursing-home Lack of evidence cited in allegations against Hammer, Carnes By GREG MOORE
Express Staff Writer
fter reviewing a forensic audit and an investigation report from the Idaho Attorney General’s Office, Blaine County Prosecuting Attorney Jim Thomas has decided not to file criminal charges against any city of Sun Valley employees regarding allegations of misappropriation of city property, misuse of city credit cards and time-card fraud. Thomas made his decision known to Mayor Dewayne Briscoe and the City Council in a letter dated Nov. 21. The letter addresses “suspected criminal activity” by former City Administrator Sharon Hammer, former Fire Chief Jeff Carnes and Fire Department employee Nick Carnes, which was reported by investigator Patricia Ball, founder of Boise-based workplace legal services company Management Northwest. Thomas cited insufficient evidence due to sloppy record keeping and permission by city officials to engage in questionable activities as barriers to prosecution. The letter addressed the following allegations: Q That Hammer used a city-owned Ford Expedition and a city credit card to pay for gas for personal trips. Citing a forensic audit carried out by Seattle-based accounting firm HSNO, Thomas stated that insufficient documentation
exists to determine how the vehicle was used and whether gas was used in the city vehicle or Hammer’s personal vehicle. “More compelling, however,” Thomas wrote, “is evidence establishing that the City permitted these activities. Despite the fact that use of a City vehicle for personal use is strictly prohibited by City of Sun Valley Policy 3.13, [former] Mayor Wayne Willich expressly authorized Hammer to use the City vehicle for business and personal use, citing her standing as an on-call [Emergency Medical Technician] in support of her need to use the vehicle on a full-time basis. Willich also authorized Hammer to use the city credit card for fuel purchases associated with Hammer’s use of the City vehicle.” Q That Hammer failed to account for JIM THOMAS personal leave. Thomas stated that Willich allowed Hammer to exercise a “flex time” schedule that did not require her to account for her hours on the job. Q That gas bought on Jeff Carnes’ city-issued credit card was more than that required for Fire Department vehicles. Thomas pointed to a lack of documentation of credit card use and noted plausible explanations for what appears to be See PROSECUTOR, Page A14
talks get more complex County leaders direct staff to conduct legal analysis By KATE WUTZ Express Staff Writer
Blaine County commissioners directed their legal staff on Tuesday to begin an analysis of any potential legal issues involved in three proposals for skilled-nursing facilities in the county. Commissioner Angenie McCleary asked Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Tim Graves to begin an overview of potential legal problems with proposals from Pocatello-based TanaBell Health Services, Pocatello-based Safe Haven Health Care and the Croy Canyon Ranch Foundation before the board evaluates the proposals themselves. McCleary said a legal overview of the proposals would be helpful in choosing which of the proposals would work best for Blaine County. However, Graves said that despite discussions in previous county meetings, he doesn’t initially see any legal issues that would disqualify any of the proposals outright. “They can all be massaged or tweaked to fit within legal parameters,” he said. “Each model is going to require some tweaking when a model is chosen. They are all going to have challenges.” The first proposal, put forth by TanaBell Health Services, proposed joining forces with Blaine Manor to improve efficiency and reduce overhead while adding assisted living units in an older, unused part of the Blaine Manor building. The proposal would require a $6 million levy and a lease-to-purchase agreement between TanaBell and the county. TanaBell proposed an initial contract of five years, with a 10-year extension if Blaine County is satisfied with the service. The second proposal was put forth by Safe Haven Health Care and includes both assisted living and skilled nursing care. The only request from Safe Haven CEO Scott Burpee was that the company be allowed to buy Blaine Manor’s nursing home license. The third is a proposal by the Croy Canyon Ranch Foundation for a tiered-care facility west of Hailey that would include independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing. The organization has requested a $29.5 million general obligation bond for construction and to cover initial operating losses. One challenge brought forth by CommisSee NURSING, Page A14

From left to right, skiers JoAnn Levy, Michael Niedrich, Will Long and Logan Johnston ride the first chairlift up Bald Mountain on Thanksgiving morning to kick off Sun Valley Resort’s 77th ski season. The resort opened the River Run side of Baldy as planned on Nov. 22, with a solid line forming for rides up the Lower River Run lift to get to higher elevations. Levy arrived at 6:30 a.m. to find a tent set up at the lift terminal with the three young men holding a spot at the head of the line. “The skiing was terrific and a great way to spend Thanksgiving morning,” Levy said.

McKinstry seeks to have school contract voided Energy company claims contract was only an ‘agreement to agree’ By TERRY SMITH Express Staff Writer
McKinstry Essention is seeking to have a contract that the company signed more than two years ago with the Blaine County School District declared “unenforceable,” an action that could undermine the School District’s defense and counterclaims in a lawsuit between the parties. In its latest filings in Blaine County 5th District Court, attorneys for McKinstry don’t even refer to the contract as a contract. Instead, the company refers to the document as a “mere agreement to agree.” According to a McKinstry motion filed on Nov. 19, a court order ruling the document unenforceable would eliminate School District defense arguments and counterclaims such as allegations of breach of contract, breach of warranties and breach of financial responsibility to the district on the part of McKinstry. In its new filings, McKinstry claims that the contract is “unenforceable for lack of material terms.” Specifically, McKinstry alleges that missing from the document is “any detailed definition of the scope of McKinstry’s obligations at the time the document was signed.” McKinstry further argues that a price for the work was never clearly stated in the contract. According to the contract, scope of work and final price were supposed to be added by amendments. However, no such amendments were ever made. “McKinstry’s motion is misguided and unnecessarily costly,” School District Communications Director Heather Crocker said. “If the contract is unenforceable,
why did McKinstry refer to it for the past year and a half? And if it’s unenforceable, under which Idaho law did they perform their work?” The School District has claimed that the contract between the parties was supposed to be in accord with an Idaho law that allows governmental entities to enter into energy savings contracts without awarding a contract on a low-bid basis. Heather Crocker The new McKBlaine County School District instry court filings follow a School District motion filed Nov. 16, wherein the district is seeking to add a claim for unspecified punitive damage to its counterclaim against McKinstry. The district alleges in its filings that McKinstry engaged in unlawful conduct to hide money from the district in order to increase profits. Judge Robert Elgee listened to arguments from both parties concerning scheduling of hearings on the two new motions during a telephonic court hearing Monday morning. The district’s motion to add punitive damage to its counterclaim was originally scheduled for Dec. 17 but has been continued to Jan. 28.
“McKinstry’s motion is misguided and unnecessarily costly.”
McKinstry’s motion on the enforceability of the contract was also scheduled to be heard Dec. 17. As of Tuesday, the hearing remained on Elgee’s docket, but the judge said he will consider rescheduling the hearing following arguments from the litigants at another hearing scheduled for Dec. 5. Boise attorney Bob Bilow, representing the School District, argued that the two hearings regarding the new motions should be held together in January. However, Elgee agreed with an argument from McKinstry attorney Paul Cressman, of Seattle, that the motion on the enforceability of the contract needs to be heard first and separately because it could affect the district’s claim for punitive damages. Litigation between McKinstry and the School District started in May when both parties filed lawsuits against each other. The lawsuits were later consolidated into one case with McKinstry listed as the plaintiff and the School District listed as the defendant. The dispute arose out of an “energy savings performance contract” that the parties entered into in 2010 for energy savings work and other improvements at eight district schools and facilities. McKinstry has alleged that it performed work at the School District’s direction worth $25.8 million and that the district still owes the company about $7 million. The district claims it authorized work worth only $18.6 million and is claiming damages against McKinstry for at least that amount. A jury trial on the case is scheduled to begin Oct. 15, 2013, and is expected to last about 25 days. Terry Smith: firstname.lastname@example.org

RANCHERS MEET WITH WOLF ADVOCATES
Express photo by Willy Cook
Rancher John Peavey, center, talks about conflicts between wolves and livestock at a Wood River Wolf Project meeting held Monday at the YMCA in Ketchum. Blaine County Commissioner Larry Schoen, right, explained that the issue is extra delicate when adding politics into the discussion regarding how to reduce the conflicts. He indicated that there are many diverse feelings, sentiments and backgrounds of people talking about wolves and that a balanced approach to the issue is important. Project organizer Suzanne Stone, background, described its five-year history of attempting to create a “shared landscape” for predators and domesticated grazing animals. She cited the project’s efforts to provide more field technicians, increased livestock-guard-dog presence, responsible removal of dead animal carcasses and sick livestock, and the use of tools such as lights, sound alarms and fladry, all nonlethal deterrents designed to decrease wolf attacks on sheep and cattle.

We took care of that and received an identical indictment.” Prior to the second indictment, Ketchum attorney Brian Elkins, representing Jameson, had filed motions with the court seeking to dismiss the earlier indictment because of procedural problems and the use of “impermissible hearsay” evidence. In an interview after Monday’s court hearing, Elkins said some of his arguments are now moot. “My main argument was that the grand jury was not properly instructed on the elements of felony vehicular manslaughter,” Elkins said. “The state was convinced that they had a problem procedurally and were required to start over. The state also brought in supposed hearsay evidence that is not allowed.” Elkins said he may file new motions challenging the new indictment and evidence against his client.

Man charged in officer injury Weatherly still recovering from accident at MASSV By TERRY SMITH Express Staff Writer
A Hailey man has been charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, after falling off a building in downtown Ketchum last summer and landing on a Blaine County Sheriff’s Office sergeant, breaking the officer’s neck. Ketchum Police Chief Steve Harkins reported Monday that Austin B. Cruz, then 20, was charged with the crime after the case was reviewed by Ketchum City Prosecutor Rick Allington. According to court records, Cruz was not arrested but was issued a summons instead. Court records state that the charge was actually filed against Cruz on Oct. 17. However, the case remained sealed and information was not available to the public until the case was unsealed on Nov. 15. Cruz has pleaded not guilty. He is repre-
sented by Hailey attorney Douglas Werth. The accident occurred around 1:45 a.m. on July 15 during a street party that was part of the MASSV music event in Ketchum. According to police reports, Cruz fell from the top of a building on Main Street, landing on Sgt. Corey Weatherly, then 43, who was working security at the event. Weatherly was flown by emergency aircraft to Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise where he underwent surgery. Sheriff Gene Ramsey said Monday that Weatherly remains on medical leave after undergoing a second surgery in October. He said Weatherly is still undergoing rehabilitation for the injury. “We plan on him coming back in the future,” Ramsey said. “He’s actually doing really good after the second surgery.”

Woman again admits to embezzlement Defendant earlier withdrew guilty plea in Farm Bureau theft case
Wednesday, November 28, 2012
CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE Â„
By TERRY SMITH Express Staff Writer
A former Fairfield woman has admitted for a second time that she stole more than $35,000 over a four-year period from the Blaine County Farm Bureau Office in Bellevue where she was previously employed as a secretary. Judith G. Shurtz, 60, who now lives in Owyhee County, entered her guilty plea to a felony charge of grand theft by embezzlement on Monday in Blaine County 5th District Court. Shurtz, who remains free on $5,000 bond, also pleaded guilty to the charge in March. However, she withdrew her guilty plea in May when Judge Robert Elgee informed her at an earlier sentencing hearing that he was going to put her in prison for at least two years. Shurtz was allowed to withdraw her earlier guilty plea because of an earlier â€œbinding plea agreementâ€? between Ketchum attorney Dan Dolan, assigned as public defender, and the Blaine County Prosecuting Attorneyâ€™s Office. Under the earlier agreement, prosecutors Judith Shurtz Defendant agreed to recommend that Shurtz spend up to a year in the county jail and be placed on probation. The binding plea agreement allowed Shurtz to withdraw her guilty plea because Elgee said in court then that he was not going to follow the prosecutorâ€™s recommendation. â€œI think anything less than two years in prison is just patting someone on the back and saying crime pays,â€? Elgee said then. Because of Elgeeâ€™s earlier pronouncement, prosecutors have now entered into a new plea agreement with Shurtz that offers harsher terms than offered before. Deputy Matt Fredback said in court Monday that his office is now recommending a sentence for Shurtz of up to eight years in prison, with four years to be served before parole eligibility. Dolan told the judge that the defense is free to argue for a lesser sentence. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 25. Shurtzâ€™s guilty plea averted a jury trial that was scheduled to begin Tuesday. Shurtz was charged with the crime in 2011 following a year-long investigation by the Blaine County Sheriffâ€™s Office. Detective Mark Dalton stated in a probable-cause affidavit that Shurtz embezzled $35,288.21 from the Farm Bureau by writing checks to herself without permission from 2006 through 2010. Dalton stated that Shurtz hid the thefts by falsifying Farm Bureau records and bank statements. In court Monday, Dolan acknowledged that Shurtz wrote â€œsomewhere between 50 and 100 checksâ€? to herself during the four-year period. â€œThatâ€™s the way I did it,â€? Shurtz said. â€œI wrote checks without permission to myself.â€?

Skiers and snowboarders line up Thursday, Nov. 22, to take the River Run quad chailift up Bald Mountain. Skiers reported good conditions on the upper slopes of Baldy over the opening weekend of the 2012-2013 ski season.
Resort reports successful opening By BRENNAN REGO Express Staff Writer
Sun Valley Co. representatives said the resort had a successful opening weekend and the company anticipates opening top-to-bottom skiing on both sides of Bald Mountain by Friday, Nov. 30. Bald Mountain opened for the season on Thursday, Nov. 22, Thanksgiving Day. “Opening weekend was excellent. It was fantastic,” Ski Patrol Director Mike Lloyd said. “The crowds were all really happy with the upper part of the mountain, and we had some good, sunny weather for Thanksgiving Day.” Lloyd said the top section of Baldy “skied great” even though the snowpack might still look “a little bleak” from down below. He also said his team did not have to perform any rescues during the winter season’s first weekend. “Everybody was really safe,” he said. Sun Valley Co. spokesman
Jack Sibbach said skier-counts were about the same as those of the past few years, and the resort’s directors were “pleased with the numbers.” “We saw a lot of happy faces up there the first few days,” he said. “A lot of the guests at the lodge said the conditions were great.” As of press deadline Tuesday, open runs on Baldy include: 42nd Street, Lower River Run, Kinderspielplatz, Ridge, Roundhouse Lane, Upper College, Cut Off, Lower Blue Grouse, Mid River Run, Upper Blue Grouse and Upper Holiday on the River Run Side. On the Warm Springs side, open runs include I-80, Upper Warm Springs and Upper Limelight. Christmas Bowl is the only open bowl. Currently, lift access is available from the River Run base area only. Access to the top is offered via Roundhouse Express (the gondola) followed by Christmas lift. River Run lift is also open for people who want to ski laps on Lower River Run. All the other
lifts are closed. (The Christmas lift was closed temporarily on Tuesday, and some skiers had to be downloaded on the gondola.) However, Sibbach said the resort plans to open additional terrain Friday, including access to the top from the Warm Springs base via the Challenger lift. The Warm Springs Day Lodge is expected to open the same day. Sibbach said he expects that by Friday the resort will open Flying Squirrel, Lower Picabo and Lower Warm Springs on the Warm Springs side. On the River Run side, Roundhouse Slope and Lower Canyon should be open before the weekend. Sibbach also said Dollar Mountain—which was open over Thanksgiving weekend—is now closed and will not reopen until Dec. 8.

Ketchum forms Internet committee Goal is to plan broadband infrastructure development By BRENNAN REGO Express Staff Writer
The Ketchum City Council has established a Broadband Strategic Plan Committee that will begin meeting in December to plan the future of the city’s Internet infrastructure. During a meeting Monday, Nov. 19, the council members voted unanimously to establish the committee. It will have a kickoff meeting in December to establish the committee’s goals, followed by monthly meetings beginning in January until the plan is completed. Councilwoman Nina Jonas said in an interview Tuesday that there was not yet a fi rm deadline for completion of the plan, but its development was one of the council’s goals for this fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30, 2013. “It would be nice to have the broadband plan expedited,” she said. At the meeting, Lisa Horowitz, Ketchum’s director of commu-
nity and economic development, said it is necessary to treat highspeed broadband infrastructure like any other infrastructure that the city plans to ensure that it is not developed “haphazardly.” “We’re now starting to recognize that it’s a city planning issue just like cities plan roads,” she said. “It’s necessary for both the city’s economy and the residents’ lifestyle.” Committee member Aaron Pearson, the Community Library’s information systems director, said the city should develop its broadband strategic plan around fiber optic technology. He said fiber optic connectivity would be the best option because it’s fast and already available in certain Ketchum locations, such as the Community Library. However, fiber optic connections are not yet accessible throughout the city’s entire downtown core, let alone the rest of the city. But that’s what the committee’s for. A staff report included in
the meeting packet states that one of the committee’s primary objectives will be to establish short(three-year), mid- (seven-year) and long-term (10-year) “policies and initiatives” to ensure that the development of the infrastructure is as “unified” as possible. “I plan to throw significant resources at this so [the committee’s] time isn’t wasted,” Mayor Randy Hall said. “We need to create the foundation for innovation.” So far, the council has approved $20,000 from the Community and Economic Development Department’s fiscal 2013 budget for development of the broadband strategic plan. The council members—particularly Nina Jonas—agreed with Hall that investing in highspeed Internet infrastructure is important and would boost the city’s economy. “I’m really excited about this,” Jonas said. “I think it will lead to economic diversity. We need more fiber in our diet!” Brennan Rego: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sun Valley to decide in January whether to keep new LOT By BRENNAN REGO Express Staff Writer
The Ketchum City Council accepted the results of the Nov. 6 election during a City Council meeting Monday, Nov. 19, including the failure of a proposed local-option tax levy to pay minimum revenue guarantees for commercial air service. However, Ketchum Mayor Randy Hall said he considers the narrowness of the margin with which the levy was defeated a “mandate” for the city to continue to pursue the air tax. The cities of Sun Valley, Ketchum and Hailey had a measure on their ballots on Election Day to add a 1 percent local-option tax to pay minimum revenue guarantees to airlines that might otherwise be unwilling to fly into a risky resort market such as Sun Valley. “While I’m disappointed the
LOT for air didn’t pass, I’m happy it got 58 percent,” Hall said. The proposed tax required 60 percent approval to pass. Hailey voters denied the measure by an even more narrow margin than those in Ketchum, with 59 percent of its voters in approval. Only Sun Valley voters approved the levy, with 61 percent voting in favor. The Sun Valley City Council members agreed Monday to wait until January to discuss whether to repeal the ordinance or wait for Ketchum to take another shot at getting the tax passed. “The fact that all three cities could almost have had a super majority is amazing,” Hall said at the Nov. 19 Ketchum meeting. “We’re going to redouble our efforts to move this ball forward.” State code requires the city to wait for one year before reintroducing the measure.

BRIEFS Sun Valley featured on Travel Channel A Travel Channel show titled “Instant Christmas” that aired on Nov. 25 featured Sun Valley as an ideal destination for holiday travelers. The two-minute segment on Sun Valley states that Sun Valley “lights up” in December and that, with more than seven decades of practice, the resort puts on the “perfect” holiday festivities. This winter season is Sun Valley Co.’s 77th. “Nestled away in central Idaho, Sun Valley Resort is a veritable winter wonderland,” the clip states. “This premier mountain getaway is the perfect destination for vacationers who want to rough it in style.” An unidentified woman interviewed in the video agreed whole-heartedly. “Christmas carolers and hot cocoa and twinkle lights and snow-shine—as I like to call it. What’s better than that?” she said. The segment mentions the many winter sports opportunities that the area offers, including skiing, snowboarding and skating, and also gives a nod to the resort’s annual Nutcracker on Ice Christmas Eve ice show. This year, the free ice show celebration will kick off on the Sun Valley Lodge Terrace at 5 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 24.

Are humans deer in the headlights?
he election is over. Now President Obama and Congress are arguing over how to avoid the fiscal cliff, the combination of tax increases and potentially draconian federal budget cuts that will be triggered automatically if lawmakers fail to craft and approve a different plan. But there’s another cliff that’s getting precious little attention from government: the climate cliff. Candidates treated climate change like the third rail of politics during the fall campaigns. If it was mentioned at all in most stump speeches, it was merely a footnote eclipsed by concern about the economy. Yet, it may be the biggest issue mankind has ever faced, second only to our ability to destroy the globe with nuclear weapons. Anyone with eyes and some historical data now can see that the polar ice caps are melting, opening up new sea lanes and contributing to rising sea levels.
The Thanksgiving holiday weekend marked the start of the season for family gatherings, religious celebrations, office parties and shopping. Black Friday has come and gone, replete with the mandatory images of people rushing into big box stores only to get jammed into closed places and claw at each other with all the graciousness of a scrum, images that allow the mandatory follow-up of grumbles about commercializing Christmas and are then put away until next year. Such grumbles ignore the hard reality that for many retailers, this season gets them across the line from financial failure to success. In an economy dependent on the health of commerce, and a nation formed on the separation of church and state, there is nothing wrong with a shopping season per se. A cynic, we are told by Oscar Wilde, is a person who knows the cost of everything and the value of nothing. Is a life truly without value if someone else gets the desired treasure? Is life as we know it over if someone else gets a better price?

In the 2011 Idaho Press Club awards competition, held in April 2012, the Mountain Express won first place in General Excellence, as well as the Pinnacle Award for winning 37 awards for weekly newspapers.
These holidays should be and are about more than commerce. The value of the holiday season we are entering has to do with seeing possibilities and opportunities to be thankful and to be generous by feeding the hungry, caring for the homeless and comforting the lonely.
When someone inevitably says there is a war on Christmas, suggest that they can win the war by making the values of peace and love proclaimed at Christmas more than just words but actions that reflect concern not so much about what you have as about who you are.

If it were foreign enemies that were inflicting this damage on the nation, our leaders would be calling upon the Department of Defense to come up with a plan to fight them. Not so with climate change. The federal government’s efforts on climate change have been puny and fragmented despite something called the Environmental Protection Agency. The nation has no cohesive plan to roll back climate change, adapt to the effects of climate change or to pay for such efforts. It’s time we did. We’ve ignored and deflected action on the issue long enough. President Obama should invest some political capital and get the nation and the world moving to respond to the emergence of climate change. Otherwise, in the face of this threat, we humans are likely to fare no better than deer in the headlights of an oncoming train.

Shellfish are showing the effects of higher acid levels in the oceans, which threaten larvae survival and cause thinner shells. Ocean acidification is occurring as the result of higher carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and polluted water discharged into the ocean. Only Washington state has begun to explore what might be done to reverse it. A new study of the world’s forests released this week shows they are in danger of dying off and being replaced with grasslands as drought becomes more widespread as a result of climate change. That’s not news to anyone in the West who has seen forests devastated by mountain pine beetles and ravaged by wildfires. New York and New Jersey have announced their tallies of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation. Those states say they may need more than $70 billion to repair the damage and rebuild, and they insist that they will be unable to do so without federal help.
Romney, followers should extend a hand
e supposedly are a nation of gracious losers. After every hard-fought contest—even pro hockey games in which hulking skaters have spent the previous couple of hours slamming opponents into the boards and trying to knock their teeth out—second-place finishers typically shake hands and congratulate the victors. Evidently, though, Mitt Romney and his vanquished GOP minions—Fox News commentators, talk radio troglodytes and other disenfranchised banner-wavers for the far right—subscribe to the sour grapes school of politics. They continue to talk trash about President Obama as if the election were tomorrow instead of more than two weeks ago, and just can’t choke down the fact that the majority of voters don’t agree with them. It’s like the scene in the 1941 classic “Citi-

zen Kane,” when fictional gubernatorial candidate Charles Foster Kane, as played by Orson Welles, holds up a prematurely printed newspaper with the headline he hoped would run, “Kane Elected,” and then selects the alternative version, “Fraud at Polls.” Aside from a brief concession speech in the early morning hours of Nov. 7, we’ve seen or heard little from the former Massachusetts governor. Romney’s only other comments after the election, made via a telephone conference call to wealthy campaign donors that was later leaked to the media, blamed his loss on “gifts” President Obama gave to AfricanAmericans, Hispanics, women and young voters. He was quoted as saying, “With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. Free contraceptives were very big with young, college-aged women. And then, finally, Obamacare also made a difference for them, because as you know, anybody now 26 years
of age and younger was now going to be part of their parents’ plan, and that was a big gift to young people.” Meanwhile, distraught voters in a number of red states, including Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, are circulating petitions calling for secession from the union. Even though the United States just reelected its first African-American president, it’s as if we’re getting ready to fight the Civil War again. This nation already faces far too many immediate challenges—for one, solving the debt crisis to avoid plunging off the fiscal cliff—to remain so sharply divided. It’s time for Romney and his followers to show some leadership and some class. Extend a hand, if not in friendship, at least in acknowledgement that we are all Americans, and we can either stand as one or all fall together.

KATHLEEN PARKER Opinion Editor’s note: Kathleen Parker, whose column normally appears in this space, is on vacation.
A few really good men As I finished Thanksgiving dinner with my daughter’s in-laws, I reflected on all that made me smile. Certainly being with grandchildren is a blessing beyond belief; certainly having good health, good friends and positive options in life is more than one might expect. All the clichés of gratitude came to mind, but as I write this column I am struck by how fortunate I am to have known many good men in my life. Recently, I wrote about the qualities of my dearest women friends, and lest you think I dislike the male gender, I should let you know what I believe. I am not noting here the often tumultuous relationships around love and marriage, although I have managed to keep as friends some good men from those experiences. Instead, I’d like to share an account of those who have influenced my character and who always restore my confidence in the innate decency of people. I was adopted into one of the most gregarious and affectionate families imaginable. Childhood was a time for lots of hugs, comfortable laps, roaring laughter and rocking piano, with a dad who was so funny and friendly that even my boyfriends hesitated about leaving my living room with him for a date with me! On Life’s Terms He never wavered in his support, attending my school sporting events, every performance or ceremony I celebrated and, to his dying day, speaking of “light at the end of the tunnel,” a sign of the optimism which he always had in spite of failures and tragedies and a life that had been filled with pain from the many surgeries he experienced as a boy with severely deformed club feet. I seldom saw anger, often heard laughter. If he were my blood father he could not have given me any DNA more appropriate than this rosy view of life. When I stood at Cypress Lawn and heard the eulogy over his grave, I felt the horrible loss of this buoyant Teddy bear. My parents’ best friend, Uncle Doc, was an equally present influence. Never hesitating to pick me up if I had car trouble or an urgent mission, he also was the intellectual who asked me to read my essays to him for feedback and paid most of my way through college. What an uncle he was! Recently, my daughters lost their father, Marty, and even though divorced, we respected each other; he never forgot the sense of his role as a father and as my friend. The world is odd without him, but I am blessed that he remained a source of comfort and inspiration to me all these years. How fortunate I was to know this man and have his whimsy, intelligence, athleticism and honor passed on to his children. And as I sat with my dynamic new in-law family, I saw again how two especially wonderful men have graced my life. My younger daughter is married to a young man who grew up with the model of a most loving and honorable father. His values, if instilled in his son as I am sure they are, will insure that my daughter will experience the long-range security of living with a good man. Incidentally, all the men I cherish have wonderful senses of humor. My elder daughter married a man who inspired me to say, upon their engagement, that I couldn’t think of anyone who would be more fitting and good for her. So there you are! Naturally, their relationship is characterized by laughter and honest exchange. Thus, I am lucky. And, to boot, I went to a movie in San Francisco last week with my best friend, Jola, and her husband, John, and reminded them of the several decades that I have been the third wheel in the back of their car, from the early days of their marriage when I joined them in Switzerland to all of our times over the years as we shared stories and experiences with our children and friends. I think of John as my brother. One other person is like a brother to me, and that is my cousin Tom, who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. My early years near him and my other Johanson cousins were marked by the love and laughter of the uncles we shared. Memories of that time are meant to be savored, echoes of the delightful men who have given me my sense of humor, security and love. No girl could want more. Thanks to them all.

The forgotten story of the ‘Hermoni’ A photo appeared in the Nov. 14 issue of the new/used Zamboni that, according to Mayor Randy Hall, was replacing its anachronistic predecessor, which was “looking like it was from the turn of the century.” Right you are, Sir Mayor. The old relic of a workhorse, once affectionately referred to as the “Hermoni,” was from the last century. It was lovingly created by the former Ice Capades star and manager of the Sun Valley ice rink, Herman Maricich, who was honored at this fall’s Battle of the Blades for his years of service to the community and to generations of skaters from here and abroad. No international skater of merit could say they’d “been there and done it” unless they had performed in a Sun Valley Saturday night ice show. A former fighter pilot during World War II and a natural-born engineer and tinkerer, Herman created the Hermoni from the chassis of a cab-over Jeep truck. Drivers cut the ice in a heated cab with a stereo and were protected from the often sub-zero temperatures. With the steering wheels located beneath the seat, it was much easier to see the sides of the ice surface, especially around the comers. We enjoyed seeing its original British racing green machine smooth out the ravages of many child and adult visitors’ first and possibly only attempt at the sport. For years, the Zamboni company tried unsuccessfully to sue Herman for an infringement of their patent for an ice-cutting machine. Kind of like the owner of a zebra being sued by the owner of a tiger for design infringement. The Hermoni was donated to the recreation program and continued to expand the ice consciousness of a grateful community. It graced the Ketchum Town Square during the fundraising drive, and with its tan paint job, resembled a relic from Desert Storm. And it is a true veteran. ROD TATSUNO Ketchum
City is on track at Hulen Meadows I am a member of the board of the Wood River Land Trust. I live in the city of Ketchum on the north side of town, and my wife and I frequently use the Hulen Meadows pond area for walking and biking. We have come to appreciate the pond and adjacent stretch of river for recreation, but are concerned about its cur-

Having attended several public meetings related to the planned restoration efforts and the city’s master plan, I support the collaborative efforts being put forth to address a complicated situation. In many places throughout the Wood River Valley, the Big Wood River has been altered to protect homes and businesses, often with emergency rip-rap and unnatural straightening. Areas that allow more natural river meandering and sediment deposition should be protected from straightening. Unfortunately, if nothing is done to the Hulen Meadows pond, it will eventually become disconnected from the river, and the river will be constricted to a single channel along Highway 75. If this happens, sediment will continue to be deposited downstream near residences, and the chance of flooding will be exacerbated. The altered floodplain around Hulen Meadows pond has been a concern for more than 15 years. Unfortunately, past efforts to restore the floodplain have not been successful. I have been pleased to see that the city has involved multiple stakeholders and the community in its current planning process and has been receptive to public comments. I believe that the city and its River Park Task Force are working hard to develop a plan that will benefit the river and floodplain, downstream homeowners and recreationists. Although the Big Wood River cannot be restored to its completely natural state, I am hopeful that this collaborative solution will result in a positive outcome. JACK KUENEMAN Ketchum
Social injustice needs correcting The social justice in this country (the greatest country in the world) just plain sucks. The pay scale in the business world is so lopsided and unfair. We reward “brains” instead of work. How did the CEOs get where they are? Isn’t it on the backs of their employees? In comparison, what the
employees get is a pittance. Everyone has the same human needs and rights. Parents need a “date” night every week, money for family outings, a decent house covering their needs, good-running cars, food, clothes and vacations, and they should be able to buy their own health insurance and send their kids to college without going bankrupt, as well as be able to save for retirement. They call what we have now capitalism and it isn’t working. What good does it do to go to the voting booth when one political party is as crooked as the other? It remains politics as usual. God did not make everyone equal in potential. But because you have a lot of potential doesn’t make you special. In God’s eye we are all special. He said, “To he who is given much, much is expected.” He is talking about making the world a better place in which to live. He isn’t talking about “charity” to the poor. The poor should grab themselves by the bootstraps and pull themselves up. Because Jesus was poor isn’t a justification for poverty. God wants everyone to get ahead. Our politicians (most of them, anyway) say they believe in God, but they do a very, very poor job of practicing the Golden Rule. Honesty is still the best policy. There is strength in numbers.

ITD should change Hailey speed limits As a resident of Bellevue, I think ITD changed the speed limit in a thought-out manner by keeping our downtown speed at 25 mph with only the more commercial areas seeing the increase. But let’s be real about moving people through our valley. While Bellevue is the southern gateway to the Wood River Valley, Hailey encompasses a longer stretch of 25-mph-restricted highway. If Bellevue is forced into an increase, why not the same for Hailey? It seems only logical to increase the limit to 35 mph from Myrtle Street north as well as along Hailey’s southern section between Fox Acres and Airport Way. I encourage the city of Hailey, the citizens of the Wood River Valley and the ITD to consider a more comprehensive speed limit change that includes all the cities in the Wood River Valley.

Howard Preserve expands south Wood River Land Trust buys additional 1.7 acres By KATE WUTZ Express Staff Writer
Though a 1.7-acre parcel that has been added to the Howard Preserve riverfront area in Bellevue might not seem like much, residents and Wood River Land Trust staff say the little piece of land will make a big difference to the area. Land Trust Executive Director Scott Boettger said the organization recently closed on a process that began in July, when he spotted a listing in the Idaho Mountain Express for eight lots in downtown Bellevue—including a parcel adjacent to the existing preserve. “At one time, the price of this property was just tremendous,” he said. “It was [originally] listed for some ridiculous price, and thankfully, no one bought it. When things hit the fan, the price became much more reasonable.” Boettger said that at one point, the property—which includes two Main Street lots—was listed for $700,000. The Land Trust was able to buy it for less than $100,000. “It was essentially a fire sale,” he said. “Luckily, no one out there was looking for real estate.” Boettger said the parcel was owned by David Harris, a Bellevue sculptor who had planned to turn the land into an artist’s compound. “It was a great vision, but he
was never able to pull it off,” he said. Boettger said the 1.7 acre parcel is still owned by the Land Trust, not the city, so technically it’s not part of the Howard Preserve. However, it’s managed as part of the preserve and helps to connect a few hiking trails near the south end that previously had crossed private property.
“It was [originally] listed for some ridiculous price, and thankfully, no one bought it.” Scott Boettger
Wood River Land Trust “There’s always been this difficulty” with following the trails, he said. Sara Burns, co-organizer of the Bellevue Haunted Forest held at the preserve each year, said the event has to skirt the adjacent private property—and even when the event is not occurring, there is some difficulty with users figuring out what parts of the riverfront area are public land. “There has always been this confusion where people are using the preserve, but there are these intermittent sections that are private property,” she said. “It’s great that the public part will be
more [contiguous].” The Howard Preserve is a parcel of land totaling nearly 13 acres one block west of Main Street in Bellevue along the Big Wood River. Boettger said the area is a riparian habitat for bald eagles in the winter, along with sculpin, yellow-billed cuckoo, moose, mountain lions and sought-after morel mushrooms. “[Part of the area] was an old city park, and it’s one of the places neighborhood kids go to fish and swim and collect morels,” he said. “All of those things add to the beauty of living here and how wonderful it can be.” The property was originally acquired by the Wood River Land Trust in 2004 as a bargain sale from the Howard family, but was later transferred to the city of Bellevue for use as a public park. Bellevue, along with a volunteer group known as the Friends of the Howard Preserve and the Land Trust, collaborate to maintain the preserve. Burns said the Bellevue Haunted Forest provides $2,500 a year for the preserve’s maintenance, which includes weed control, signs and trail maintenance. Boettger said that in addition to maintenance, the Land Trust has plans to seek grant funding to restore one old trail that follows the riverbank. “The old trail that was there has washed away,” he said. “With

The pink and orange blocks are still private property adjacent to the public preserve. the acquisition, we’ll be able to move the trail.” As for the two Main Street lots, Boettger said the Land Trust has no plans to develop them. Rather, the organization will try to trade that developable property for other land in the area with conservation value.

7 wolves killed in Yellowstone region 4 more killed in Southern Mountains area By KATE WUTZ Express Staff Writer
Staff at Yellowstone National Park reported that seven collared wolves from the park have been killed in recent weeks by hunters in Montana, Idaho and Wyoming. According to The Associated Press, the wolves were wearing collars for research purposes and were killed outside the park. Dave Hallac, chief of Yellowstone’s Center for Resources, told The Associated Press on Nov. 15 that there has been no indication that any of the wolves were taken illegally.
Four of the seven were shot in Montana, two in Wyoming and one in Idaho.
Two of the animals were from packs that no longer spend most of their time in the park. Four of the seven were shot in Montana, two in Wyoming and one in Idaho. Wolves cannot be killed within the park, but can be legally hunted in all three states. Niels Nokkentved, spokesman for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, said Tuesday that he had no information on the Idaho wolf or where it was killed. Calls to the agency’s big game manager, John Rachael, were not returned as of press time Tuesday. Hallac told The Associated
Press that the number of park wolves killed so far does not threaten the stability Yellowstone’s population of more than 85 wolves. He added that several hunters have already offered to return the radio collars attached to the wolves. Hunters in Idaho have killed 102 wolves as of Nov. 21. Seventeen of those wolves were killed in the Panhandle Zone in extreme northern Idaho. Four were killed in the Southern Mountain region of the state, which encompasses Ketchum, Sun Valley, Hailey, Bellevue and Carey. The Southern Mountains Zone has a quota of 40 wolves that may be killed between Aug. 30 and March 31, meaning that 36 more wolves may be killed in the area before the season’s end. Ten wolves were killed in the Sawtooth Zone, west of the Southern Mountains Zone, which has a quota of 60 wolves that may be hunted this season. No wolves were reported trapped in the state between the opening of trapping season on Nov. 15 and the Department of Fish and Game’s most recent wolf harvest report of Nov. 21. Trapping is only allowed in certain areas in the northern part of the state, mainly near the IdahoMontana border. The 102 wolves killed by hunters so far since Aug. 30 represents 40 percent of the total number of wolves shot by hunters last season. A little over one-third of the season has passed in most of the state. Kate Wutz: email@example.com
Hailey police investigate vehicle vandalism
PROJECT OPEN HOUSE
3 cars damaged, 2 with Sheriff’s Office markings By TERRY SMITH Express Staff Writer
Hailey police are investigating car vandalism that occurred in the city late last week. Three vehicles were damaged, two of them with Blaine County Sheriff’s Office markings. Hailey Police Chief Jeff Gunter said Monday that the vandalism was reported Friday afternoon, suggesting that it occurred either Thursday night or early Friday morning. He said total damage was estimated at $2,050. One of the vehicles with Sheriff’s Office markings is usually parked in the east parking lot at the Blaine County Courthouse. It is now out of police service and used for other county business. The vehicle, a 1994 Chevrolet pickup, sustained a broken front windshield and a broken rear window on an attached camper shell. Gunter said someone also attempted to write the word “pig” on the vehicle with a rock. Damage to the pickup was estimated at $800.
Gunter said an in-service sheriff’s vehicle, a 2012 Ford Expedition, was also vandalized while it was parked at an officer’s home in the Deerfield area of east Hailey. Police estimated damage at $500 to the vehicle because of a broken front windshield. The third vehicle, a 2005 Cadillac Escalade, was damaged in a parking lot at the Balmoral apartment complex in southeast Hailey. “The windshield was broken out with a Corona beer bottle,” Gunter said, estimating damage at $750. “We’re looking at all three as if they’re related,” the police chief said. However, Sheriff Gene Ramsey said he does not relate the new vandalism to attacks on two Sheriff’s Office vehicles two years ago, when culprits attempted to light the cars on fire. Three juveniles were later convicted in that case. Terry Smith: firstname.lastname@example.org

Wood River Ability Program to host â€˜mini World Cupâ€™ Development camp to tie in with Boulder Mountain Tour By KATE WUTZ Express Staff Writer

The Wood River Ability Program is working to bring up to 20 disabled athletes to the Wood River Valley this winter to participate in a training camp and compete in the Boulder Mountain Tour. Program Director Marc Mast said his organization will hold a development camp for athletes who compete and perform at a high level but who are amputees or have traumatic brain injuries, birth defects, visual or auditory impairment or other physical limitations. Mast said the camp will start the week of Jan. 28, in conjunction with the 2013 Sun Valley Nordic Festival. The festival last year drew thousands of visitors, according to city occupancy reports, and nearly 1,000 registered participantsâ€”75 percent of whom were from out of the area. Mast said his camp would be â€œa lot of racing and a little training,â€? with athletes mostly coming to participate in the Nordic Festival. Athletes will compete in a three-kilometer race, a biathlon, sprint races in downtown Ketchum and the Boulder Mountain Tour. â€œIâ€™m calling it a mini-World Cup,â€? he said with a laugh. In all competitions but the biathlon, attendees of Mastâ€™s camp will compete alongside able-bodied athletes. The International Paralympic Committee Nordic Skiing World Cup wraps up in Cable, Wisc., on Jan. 21, only seven days before the date that Mast wants to start his camp. However, he said he hopes the timing will be helpful, as athletes from other parts
of the nation and even the world may decide to head for Sun Valley after wrapping up in Wisconsin. â€œI donâ€™t know, but it could happen,â€? he said. The camp follows the Wood River Ability Program and Sun Valley Ski Education Foundationâ€™s success in obtaining designation for the Wood River Valley as a Nordic Paralympic/ Olympic training site. The idea was generated by Mast three years ago after he attended a U.S. Olympic Committee Paralympics Leadership Conference. Mastâ€”who contracts as a coach with the U.S. Paralympic Nordic teamâ€”said the idea was sparked when the topic of training sites was discussed at the conference.
â€œWhenever possible, nonprofit organizations should give back to the community, and this is a great way to do that.â€? Marc Mast
Wood River Ability Program â€œI went to the head of U.S. Paralympics and asked, â€˜What does it take to be a training site?â€™â€? Mast said. â€œThen I took a look at the criteria. We met 97 percent of them without doing anything.â€? Mast said he contacted the Blaine County Recreation District, the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation and the Ketchum-Sun Valley Chamber of Commerce to pull together an application. But after a few meetings, the idea languishedâ€”until Sustain Blaine economic development group Executive Director Harry
Griffith contacted Mast and asked how he could help. A year later, the application was complete and designation was granted earlier this month. Mast said he wanted the designation partly to benefit the community as a whole through potential sponsors and branding, which could not only boost Nordic events but help bring more athletes to the area. â€œObviously, I thought it would be beneficial to WRAP,â€? he said. â€œ[But] whenever possible, nonprofit organizations should give back to the community, and this is a great way to do that.â€? Mast said that eventually, his goal is to host a Paralympic World Cup similar to the one being held in Wisconsin this winter. Until then, he said, heâ€™s focusing on getting at least five resident athletes from the U.S. Paralympic Nordic team in Sun Valley. So far one member of the team lives hereâ€”Omar Bermejo, a retired Marine who did four tours in Iraq and was convinced by Mast to come and live in Ketchum when they met at the 2010 Winter Paralympic Games. Mast said heâ€™s trying to raise money to provide prizes for disabled athletes competing in the Boulder Mountain Tour. His goal is to raise $10,000 for athletes in six categories: men and womenâ€™s stand-up skiing, sit-down skiing and visually impaired skiing. If heâ€™s successful, the Boulder Mountain Tour would be the first national race to provide prize money to both disabled and ablebodied athletes. â€œIf we get prize money, we could get a lot of the current U.S. Paralympic Nordic Team here [to compete],â€? he said.

Avalanche Center releases class schedule Season includes new ‘sidecountry’ seminar By KATE WUTZ
is geared toward snowmobilers, will be held on Thursday, Jan. 17, from 7-9 p.m. at Woodside Motorsports in Hailey. The field session for this class will be held on Saturday, Jan. 19, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The center will also hold a class solely for emergency responders on Thursday, Jan. 3, from 6-8 p.m. at the Greenhorn Gulch Fire Station just south of East Fork Road. The field session will be held on Saturday, Jan. 5. The center is launching a new seminar this year solely for sidecountry or out-of-bounds skiers. Trautman said earlier this month that the seminar is designed for people who ski on Bald Mountain and use the lifts to access the ski area, but who duck the ropes surrounding the ski area and head into what is essentially the backcountry. Trautman said a separate class could be helpful in explaining to sidecountry skiers why they need to be concerned about avalanche danger. “The dangers from a snow or avalanche perspective are the same [in the sidecountry or backcountry],” he said. “What is very different is people’s mentalities.” Trautman said skiers in the sidecountry might not think about how their actions might impact other nearby skiers. For example, he said, skiers in the sidecountry are not always careful about ensuring that they don’t trigger an avalanche that could catch people below. “When you’re in the backcountry and you look up and see someone above you, you notice it,” he said. “[But] if you duck the rope and go into what is essentially backcountry, it’s hard to change your mentality.” The seminar will be held Thursday, Feb, 21, from 6-8 p.m. at a yet-to-be-determined location. The seminar will include a panel and open discussions with avalanche forecasters, the Sun Valley Ski Patrol and Sawtooth Mountain Guides.

The Sawtooth National Forest Avalanche Center released its class schedule last week, which includes four avalanche basics classes and a sidecountry skiing safety seminar. The first class will be held Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 6-8 p.m. at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum. According to the class’s description, the class is meant to serve either as a refresher for anyone with avalanche training or as a basic introduction to snow safety.
“The dangers from a snow or avalanche perspective are the same [in the sidecountry or backcountry]. What is very different is people’s mentalities.” Simon Trautman
Sawtooth National Forest Avalanche Center Avalanche forecasters Blase Reardon, Simon Trautman and Scott Savage with the center will cover how to recognize avalanche conditions and warning signs, how recreationists can tell if they are in avalanche terrain, how to travel safely in the backcountry and how to perform an immediate avalanche rescue. The class will be followed by an optional all-day field session on Saturday, Dec. 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the details of which will be available at the classroom session. Participants must attend a classroom session before attending a field session. The next public class will be Tuesday, Jan. 8, from 6-8 p.m. at the Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater in Hailey—not at the Community Campus in Hailey, where the center has held previous classes. The field session will be Saturday, Jan. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The last public class, which

Prosecutor alleges lack of oversight at city Continued from Page A1 excessive use of the card, including the possibility that Carnes’ card was used to fill several vehicles at once. Q Purchases on Carnes’ city-issued credit card for personal items, including clothing, electronic equipment, food, ski tickets and snowmobile repairs. Again, Thomas pointed to a lack of documentation and approval of the purchases by Hammer, Willich and the City Council. Q That Nick Carnes was paid for more hours than he actually worked. “The sheer number of hours worked certainly raises suspicions,” Thomas wrote, “and although there are numerous hours of undocumented or improperly documented payments to Nick Carnes, it is impossible to reconstruct an accurate timeline or find supporting evidence that the State can rely on to prove criminal malfeasance.” Hammer was terminated from her position as city administrator without stated cause last January. Briscoe and Jim Thomas the City Council later Blaine County prosecuting attorney commissioned the forensic audit, the results of which were provided to Thomas for review and investigation. Thomas released his findings to the Idaho Mountain Express Tuesday after the Express filed a public records request. Jeff Carnes, Tina Carnes and Nick Carnes all resigned from their positions with the city in September. They had all been on paid administrative leave since December 2011. Thomas’ letter concludes with the observation that although no criminal charges will be filed, the investigations revealed “serious failures at multiple levels of management and supervision within the City of Sun Valley.” “These failures in oversight contributed to a culture of entitlement where certain employees took advantage of the City’s mismanagement, and led to a breach of the public trust and damage to the City’s professional reputation.”

Sun Valley hires new administrator Wisconsin woman will earn $125,000 per year Nearly a year after former Sun Valley City Administrator Sharon Hammer’s contract with the city was terminated with no stated cause, the mayor and City Council have selected someone to replace her. After an executive session during a special City Council meeting Monday, the council unanimously authorized Mayor DeWayne Briscoe to enter into an employment agreement with “a” city administrator. Briscoe clarified who that administrator will be just before press deadline Tuesday. Her name is Susan E. Robertson, the village manager of Fox Point, Wis., a position she has held since 1995. “Susan told me she loves the Sun Valley area and that this is the only job for which she would consider leaving her current position,” Briscoe said. “This is her dream job.” Briscoe said the council is “pleased” with Robertson’s qualifications, which include professional experience in positions such as city manager of Silverton, Ore., assistant city manager of Canandalgua, N.Y., assistant city manager of Laramie, Wyo., and director of housing and community development of Ripon, Wis. “If you read her qualifications, she’s probably the most qualified city administrator the city’s had in a number of years,” Briscoe said. Briscoe said Robertson has managed fire, police and public works departments in the various cities in which she has been employed. Robertson has a master’s of public administration from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Florida. “She’s fully aware of the problems the city has had over the past year and she’s willing to step in,” Briscoe said. “She agrees with the new tone and culture that we have since established in the administration of the city.” Briscoe said this “new tone” is one of compliance with city regulations. According to Briscoe, Robertson’s salary will be $125,000 per year, plus a one-time payment of up to $7,500 for moving costs. He said Robertson will not receive any additional compensation such as housing or automobile allowances or retirement benefits. “She will be entitled to the same benefit package as all the other city employees.” Briscoe said he signed the employment agreement with Robertson Tuesday afternoon.
Nursing discussions to continue next month Continued from Page A1 sioner Jacob Greenberg was the issue of how to dispose of Blaine Manor’s nursing home license. Greenberg said he was concerned that the license, a public asset, might need to be put out to bid rather than simply transferred to any of the companies—each of which has said it would be interested in taking over the license and Blaine Manor’s Medicare/Medicaid certification. Graves said he believes that as the license would be tied to a service agreement between the owners of the successful proposal and the county, it would likely not need to be put out to bid. However, he said all the proposals have this type of legal issue attached. “There are going to be a lot of those technical issues going forward,” he said. Commissioner Larry Schoen said during the last public meeting on skilled nursing two weeks ago that he is concerned about the county’s ability to pass a general obligation bond for a facility that includes independent living, such as Croy Canyon Ranch. During Tuesday’s meeting, he
also expressed concern that the Blaine Manor building itself might need to be put up for auction as a public asset. Schoen said that if the TanaBell proposal is chosen and an auction is necessary, “We have to evaluate [Tanabell’s] ability to be
managed by the company that has partnered with the Croy Canyon Ranch Foundation. However, she said that the facility has not yet been built in Boise and the nearest similar facility is in Billings, Mont. “The purpose of the site visit
“Each model is going to require some tweaking when a model is chosen. They are all going to have challenges.” Tim Graves
Deputy prosecuting attorney successful in that auction.” McCleary said that once the legal analysis is complete, she will schedule time on the board’s agendas for further evaluation and risk analysis of each of the proposals. Those meetings will also follow site visits of a TanaBell facility in Pocatello and a Safe Haven facility in Idaho Falls, where commissioners will be able to see facilities similar to the ones proposed for Blaine County. McCleary said a site visit had been proposed for a Greystone community in Boise, built and
was to see the care provided by each facility,” she said. “At this point, I am not going to schedule time for the board to go out of state.” Schoen and McCleary both said they would like to get an idea of the market demand for skilled nursing beds in the county, since the market analysis differs from proposal to proposal. The commissioners will conduct site visits on Monday, Dec. 10, in Idaho Falls and Pocatello. No time has been set for completion of the preliminary legal analysis. Kate Wutz: email@example.com
State is slow to implement crossings By ASSOCIATED PRESS
BOISE—Idaho’s wildlife managers are starting to worry about the growing number of collisions involving motorists and deer, elk and moose. Studies show more than 5,000 of the animals were killed by vehicles on Idaho roadways last year, and that total could be higher since many collisions aren’t reported to law enforcement or insurance companies.
Fish and Game officials say likely only about 50 percent of road-killed animals are reported.
Now, Idaho Fish and Game Department managers say it’s time to ramp up monitoring and wildlife crossing programs. “Right now, we think we’re losing the same number of deer that we harvest in our biggest deer (hunting) unit every year, so that is significant,” Gregg Servheen, the agency’s wildlife program coordinator, told the SpokesmanReview in a story Monday. “As we try to maintain deer harvest and sportsman interest and opportunity, that becomes key.” Wildlife crossings, which are showing positive results in other states, might become more commonplace along known animal migration corridors in Idaho. A new section of U.S. Highway 95 being built north of Coeur d’Alene features a $1 million wildlife underpass, designed to allow deer, elk, moose, bears and other species to cross freely, without endangering themselves or motorists whizzing by on the
Hailey Holiday Square!
state’s main north-south route. Extensive fencing will route the animals to the safe crossing. The underpass, just south of Silverwood, will be the state’s fifth when the highway project is completed next fall. Another that was built on Highway 21 east of Boise in 2011 has seen large herds of deer crossing safely as car-deer collisions at the site plummeted. Three were built in the Eastport area in 2004, on Highway 95 in Boundary County, as part of a 16-mile highway realignment project. The area is a hot spot in the state for vehicle collisions with animals. Nearly 900 animals, most of them white-tailed deer, were hit by cars on Highway 95 from just south of Coeur d’Alene to the Canadian border in 2011, according to Fish and Game data. There also were moose, elk, bears and others. Fish and Game officials say likely only about 50 percent of road-killed animals are reported, so the numbers could be twice as high as their reports show. Compared to other states, however, Idaho is slow in adopting the wildlife crossing idea. Montana, for example, built more than 40 wildlife crossings, including underpasses and one large overpass, on a 56-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 93 in 2010. Utah has spent more than $47 million on wildlife crossings since 2005, and Wyoming has spent $20 million since 2001. Idaho Fish and Game over the past several years has created an extensive mapping system highlighting major wildlife crossings on roads statewide, and is coordinating with the Idaho Transportation Department to consider those in future road construction projects.

STOP IN FOR SOME
BRIEFS Suicide prevention hotline launched The Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline (800-273-TALK) was launched statewide on Monday. It is Idaho’s only statewide suicide prevention hotline. According to an Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline news release, Idaho has one of the country’s highest suicide rates. The release also states that suicide prevention hotlines are a “proven means” to help prevent suicides. Though a national hotline is available, the release states the Idaho-specific hotline will be advantageous to its callers since phone workers will be more familiar with services offered specifically in Idaho. The hotline will serve all callers free of charge from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Friday service will be added in February and 24/7 service will be developed during the hotline’s second year. Currently, calls made outside of service hours will be redirected to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The Idaho hotline will also offer suicide prevention information on its website at www.idahosuicideprevention.org. “We’re ready to serve all of Idaho,” said John Reusser, executive director of the Idaho Suicide Prevention Hotline. “Those who might be considering suicide, or those who just need someone to talk to, we’re here to take their calls.”

Changes to 511 system allow drivers to customize information The Idaho Transportation Department has introduced new options to the 511 Traveler Services program that allow drivers to tailor reports to their own needs. Registering on the www.511. idaho.gov website drivers them the option of receiving direct reports for their preferred routes through email, text messages or Twitter. Information is available about highway conditions, delays and closures. The new option complements an earlier upgrade that introduced direct highway notifications through text messages to cell phones or email alerts to computers. To take advantage of those alerts, users established a free account on the 511 site that allowed them to designate route preferences. The newest option does not require travelers to establish accounts, but they must be registered with Twitter to receive “tweets” with automated highway condition reports.
Regional ITD office commended The south-central Idaho office of the Idaho Transportation Department has been acknowledged by the National Weather Service for being storm-ready. According to Vernon Preston, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Pocatello, ITD District 4 is the first transportation entity in the United States to earn the recognition usually reserved for towns. The South Central Idaho StormReady Local Advisory Board awarded the National Weather Service StormReady Recognition in January and presented a plaque and signs on Nov. 16 in Twin Falls. To meet the requirements of the recognition, ITD District 4 had to demonstrate adequate levels of emergency operations, including communications, equipment, facilities and human resources. For more information about the National Weather Service StormReady program, go to www.stormready.noaa.gov.

H. Warren Knight The Hon. H. Warren Knight, retired Orange County, Calif., Superior Court Judge and founder of JAMS, The Resolution Experts, passed away on Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, in Newport Beach, Calif., from complications from COPD. He was 83 years old. Warren Knight was born in Charleston, W.Va., on Oct. 16, 1929. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1952 and University of Virginia School of Law in 1955. He joined the Marine Corps in 1955 and was stationed in California. He practiced law and served on the Orange County Municipal and Superior courts. He was named Trial Judge of the Year in 1974 and 1978 and was the recipient of numerous other legal awards. Judge Knight’s belief in the benefits of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) inspired him to leave the security of a judgeship in 1979 and open a one-man mediation practice in Santa Ana, Calif. Thus was the beginning of the first JAMS office and Judge Knight’s extraordinary contributions to the field of ADR. Thirty years later, JAMS has grown to be the world’s largest private ADR provider with hearing locations across the globe. Judge Knight will be remembered as a generous teacher and mentor with a comforting presence, superior listening skills, sharply honed sense of justice and infectious sense of humor. His family and loved ones would agree that he lived life to its fullest. He spent 10 years in Sun Valley, Idaho, fly fishing, hiking, traveling and making new friends. More recently, he lived in California, where he worked on his family genealogy and mentored two students as part of the Newport/ Mesa ProLiteracy Program. Judge Knight is survived by his wife, Carolyn, and his five children and eight grandchildren. A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8, at the Calvary Chapel East Anaheim, 5605 East La Palma Ave., Anaheim, Calif. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations in Judge Knight’s memory be made to the following organizations: The JAMS Foundation, Attn: Julie Sager, 1920 Main St., Suite 300, Irvine, CA 92614 or Newport/Mesa ProLiteracy, Attn: Cherall Weiss, Literacy Coordinator, 1000 Avocado Ave., Newport Beach, CA 92660.

Christopher Coleman McCall Christopher Coleman McCall passed from this life on Saturday morning, Nov. 17, 2012, surrounded by his beloved sister and brothers, after a seizure caused a fall and severe head trauma. Chris was born on May 3, 1947, in Bryn Mawr, Pa., to Martha Coleman McCall and J. Benton McCall. Chris was born with Down syndrome. Chris’ parents made a decision, uncommon in the late 1940s, to raise their first born at home rather than institutionalizing him, as was the practice at that time. This choice led his parents on a lifelong journey to not only give their son the best education possible and access to the mainstream community, but to assist in providing those same resources for other children with developmental disabilities. At the age of 7, Christopher began attending St. Coletta School, a boarding school in Hanover, Mass., now called Cardinal Cushing School, where children with developmental disabilities could learn, grow, thrive and achieve their individual success. Chris loved his school and the gentle nuns who guided him for 10 years. He also always loved flying to and from school for vacations, and for years his family heard the story about sitting next to the Everly Brothers on one of the flights. Music had a special place in Chris’ world and he assembled a large record collection: Ricky Nelson, the Beach Boys, John Denver, the Monkeys, the Rolling Stones, but it was the Beatles he adored for a lifetime. The Beatles, the New York Yankees and Dick Clark’s American Bandstand were his passions. After many years living with his parents, working under the auspices of GARC (now Abilis) in Greenwich, Ct., Chris began trips to Idaho to visit his sister Kerrin, a longtime Ketchum resident. Years after his father’s passing and due to his mother’s declining health, Chris came to live in this welcoming community in 2001. He lived with Kerrin for two and a half years and then decided it would be more fun to live at Aspen Grove (now Safe Haven), an assisted living community in Bellevue where he was the life of the house for more than nine years and was cared for by much-loved Marie Humphries. Chris first worked at St. Thomas Church, and then in the produce department at Atkinsons’ Market in Ketchum under the kind guidance of Carl Charron for nearly 10 years. Chris and his family are grateful for a community that allowed him to reach his potential, have unexpected freedom and to be supported by so many community resources. Senior Connection, Sun Valley Adaptive Sports, Sagebrush (now Swiftsure) Riding Arena and Mountain Rides were central to his rich life here in the Wood River Valley. Christopher is survived by a deeply loved family, as his family was the most important part of his life (even more so than The Beatles). Kerrin McCall of Ketchum, Kevin McCall and wife Louisa of Cambridge, Mass., Josh McCall and wife Alex of Dedham, Mass., nephew Ethan and five nieces—Kinnon, Carly, Morgan, Nekele and Hayden—all love Chris so much for his incredibly warm heart, his constant happiness and his unique way of making everyone feel special. We are blessed with his pure love and gentle manner, which will forever be a living, breathing presence in all those whose lives he touched. A celebration of Chris’ life will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 4 p.m. at Light on the Mountains Spiritual Center. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Chris’ name to the Senior Connection. “All You Need is Love,” the McCall Family.

Idaho Power and the Wood River Electrical Plan’s Community Advisory Committee is hosting three public open houses this week to give valley residents an opportunity to discuss and learn more about a proposed second transmission line between Hailey and Ketchum. The first was held yesterday at the Community Campus in Hailey. Additional open houses will be held today, Nov. 28, from 5-7 p.m. at Sun Valley City Hall and Thursday, Nov. 29, from 5-7 p.m. at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum. A recent Idaho Power news release invites the public to “drop in” to the open houses to view displays and handouts detailing the proposed project. Also, those who attend will have the opportunity to talk with and provide commentary to Idaho Power staff members and members of the Wood River Community Advisory Committee—a group of valley residents that collaborated with Idaho Power to develop the plan for the proposed project in 2007. Light refreshments will be served. According to Idaho Power’s website, the north valley is currently served by a single 138,000 volt transmission line. “An outage on this line results in power loss to all of the Ketchum and Sun Valley area,” the website states. “A second transmission line to the north is critical for reliable electric service.” The website states that the proposed 138 kV transmission line route would be about 12 miles long and would provide a redundant connection between the Wood River substation north of Hailey and the Ketchum substation on Sun Valley Road. According to the website, Idaho Power will make final decisions concerning the line’s route and the design of the power poles after receiving public feedback during the open houses. For more information on the proposed project, visit www. idahopower.com/woodriver.

“They have been a great deterrent.“ Jeff Gunter
Hailey police chief High School,” Gunter said. “They have walked by and sniffed about 10,000 cars in the last five years.” Shadow’s K-9 patrols and traffic stops uncovered one methamphetamine stash and several stashes of marijuana. The methamphetamine bust took place in 2011 following a traffic stop for “erratic driving.” Shadow took a sniff and signaled to police that drugs were in the car. Shadow also assisted police in uncovering marijuana at Wood River High School and elsewhere in the city, leading to misdemeanor drug-possession charges. Shadow was thanked formally at a Hailey City Council meeting last week by Mayor Fritz Haemmerle for his duty to the city, before taking his leave with Stewart. Shadow’s counterpart, Dax, is a drug-trained dog on active duty in Sun Valley. “I’d like to get another drug dog for the south valley,” Gunter said. “We are in discussions.” Tony Evans: email@example.com

Profits boost Idaho’s personal income Blaine County’s average wage close to that of state By EXPRESS STAFF A significant surge in business profits, especially in rural Idaho, pushed 2011 total personal income higher in 42 of the state’s 44 counties. In resource-dependent Lewis and Idaho counties, business-profit declines were offset by higher-than-average wage increases to boost total personal income there as well. In Blaine County, total income was estimated at $1,260,599,000, up 5.9 percent from 2010, with wages of $470,263,000. Business profits were estimated at $139,913,000 in 2011, with the average wage at $36,988. Statewide, the average wage was $36,452. It was only the sixth time in the past 40 years that every county recorded an increase in personal income. The last was in 2007, the peak of the last expansion. Express photo by Willy Cook
CELLAR DWELLERS SAVE ICONIC CHAIR
Personal income in the 33
From left to right, Boise residents Jen Cullinane, Deedee Johnston, Wendy DeVinastre, Aliesha Johnston and Carrie Eshelman pose on valley artist Rob Hink’s Cowboy Chair in downtown Ketchum last weekend. Hink’s creation—which was in front of his and fellow artist Lynn Toneri’s gallery on Sun Valley Road for many years—is now slated to stay in its high-profile location, even though Hink and Toneri have moved their gallery. The city of Ketchum and The Cellar Pub, located downstairs from where the chair has stood for so long, together paid half the asking price of $4,500 and Cellar Pub patrons paid the other half, mainly in five-dollar bills donated into a collection jar. One of the pub’s owners, Paige Lethbridge, said keeping the chair was a community effort. “We wanted to keep it here ’cause it’s so iconic, and the joke around here is that the chair is probably photographed more than the Sawtooth Mountain range,” she said.
Sun Valley restructures Fire Department Mayor announces temporary positions By BRENNAN REGO Express Staff Writer
The Sun Valley Fire Department has had a rough year, including the resignation of longtime former Fire Chief Jeff Carnes. Several recently announced temporary appointments to leadership positions are intended to keep the department on track until Mayor Dewayne Briscoe decides who will run it permanently. Carnes resigned in September without stating a reason. He had been on paid administrative leave since Dec. 20, 2011, with a two-day break from Jan. 3-5. The break occurred when Briscoe’s administration took office. Briscoe said Tuesday that the city instituted a “credit card control” policy in February and since that time has saved about $1,200 per month in the Fire Department. “The savings are coming mainly from gas money for administrative cars,” he said. “Those cars include the fire chief’s and assistant fire chief’s vehicles and a Fire Department pickup.” While Carnes was on administrative leave, As-
sistant Fire Chief Ray Franco served as the department’s acting chief. Briscoe announced Tuesday that Franco will remain as acting chief for at least the next six months. Interim Executive Assistant to the Mayor Michael Parda said the contract became effective Nov. 5 and will expire May 3. Other appointments announced by Briscoe include Mal Prior as interim assistant fire chief for command and special projects, Taan Robrahn as interim training and operations officer, and Slater Storey as interim maintenance worker for the Fire and Street departments. Parda said the contracts for all those appointments are for the same time period as Franco’s. He also said Reid Black will continue in his position as code enforcement officer. Briscoe said Franco has been doing an “excellent job” as acting chief and that he has proven himself very capable of the job’s responsibilities. He also spoke highly of the other appointees. “I think they’ll provide excellent leadership, training and record keeping,” he said. Brennan Rego: firstname.lastname@example.org

rural counties combined was up 6 percent from 2010. Estimates from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis showed total personal income increases ranging from a low of 1.1 percent in Gem County, where total wages fell 3.4 percent but business profits jumped 11.1 percent, to a high of 22.3 percent in Clark County, where total wages also fell 3.4 percent while business profits jumped 78.9 percent. Personal income in the 33 rural counties combined was up 6 percent from 2010, a half point higher than the national average increase for rural areas. At the same time, the 11 urban counties posted a 4.7 percent increase, a half point lower than metropolitan areas averaged nationally. Wage increases were essentially the same—2.4 percent in the five metro areas and 2.3 percent in the rural counties. But while business profits were up 7.2 percent in urban Idaho, they soared 22.2 percent in rural areas. Statewide, personal income was up 5.1 percent in 2011, a tenth of a percentage point below the national increase. The average annual wage also grew slightly faster in rural Idaho in 2011, up 2 percent compared to 1.8 percent in the urban areas. The largest increase was 10 percent in Camas County. Six rural counties saw the average wage decline, with the largest loss in Owyhee County at 1.4 percent. A change in total wages can be the result of a change in the number of jobs while a change in the average wage is a change in compensation per job.

Home games offer first tests for Hailey boys New cage coach Miles welcomes turnout of 34 BY JEFF CORDES Express Staff Writer
At 24, Andy Miles is about the youngest head coach in Idaho high school boys’ basketball—and he’ll bring about the youngest team in the Gem State onto the floor this week when the Wood River High School boys’ varsity opens its season. Wood River debuts its 19-game season slate today, Wednesday at Kimberly and hosts 3A squads Filer and Gooding Friday, Nov. 30 and Tuesday, Dec. 4. Miles has welcomed 34 players and there will be varsity, junior varsity and freshmen squads this winter. Miles, a 2006 graduate of Idaho Falls High School, was a volunteer assistant freshman basketball coach for Wood River last winter. He helped Wolverine football coach Kevin Stilling with wide receivers and defensive backs this fall. This is the first head coaching job for Miles, who was a second-team All-State wide receiver for the Idaho Falls High School football team and also played small forward in basketball and was
a right-handed knuckleball pitcher in baseball for the eastern Idaho Tigers. He’s excited about the opportunity in Hailey. Miles said, “This is awesome. I can’t wait to play Kimberly. We’re very young and inexperienced, but the kids are very hardworking and coachable. They’re willing to do anything.” Just last week, Wood River athletic director John Rade formally announced Miles would replace Billy Zei as the Wolverine head varsity coach. Zei, last year’s head freshman coach, was promoted to head varsity coach in April, replacing Rick Bradshaw. But Rade said Zei had since moved to Texas for career opportunities. Rade said about Miles, “The lack of coaching experience will be compensated with his ability to create and maintain positive relationships with athletes, his passion for the game of basketball and his desire for basketball knowledge.” Having lost 10 seniors and a top rebounder (Ben Williams, knee injury) from last winter’s 2-19 Wolverine
squad that lost its final 14 games, Miles will have his work cut out for him. Virtually no point scorers have returned from a team that struggled on offense at 37.4 ppg. Miles is the eighth Wood River head coach in 20 years since the Hailey boys last posted a winning record, for coach Norm Cook in 1992. Since then, Wood River has won 10 or more games only three times and has an overall 104-332 record including 49-138 at home and 37164 in league play. But there is plenty of athletic potential coming up. The freshman boys had a 12-4 record for coach Fred Trenkle last winter and placed second in the seven-team Magic Valley Athletic Conference. They played a bunch of close games. Only nine points stood between the eighthgrade Hailey boys and an unbeaten league season. Although Wood River’s four seniors are inexperienced, 6-7 junior Max Mauldin and 6-4 junior Eron Bates provide solid front-court height to build See BASKETBALL, Page B4
Community School sophomore Alexandra Harten, 15, became an U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist in Moves in the Field Nov. 18 in Boise. She completed a series of eight increasingly challenging figure skating tests, demonstrating mastery of Moves in the Field at the highest level. Harten’s achievement will be acknowledged on the USFS Web site and credited in Skater Magazine. She joins Community School senior Shayna Moellenberg, 18, and Wood River High senior Nicole Pratt, 17, as Sun Valley’s only USFS gold medalist junior competitive skaters. Skating for the first time at age five, Harten quickly fell in love with its athletic and artistic sides. Over the years, she has enjoyed both regional success as a singles competitive free skater and national success as a theatrical skater. Her competitive achievements include 2013 U.S. Figure Skating National Showcase Novice Light Silver Medalist and 2011 Sun Valley Summer Championships Most Outstanding Showcase Trophy winner. She has competed as a singles skater locally and in Jackson Hole, Salt Lake, Boise, Spokane, Seattle, Phoenix, and southern California, and as a team member in three winning group showcase productions. Balancing time between school, skating, community, and friends, Harten trains on and off ice five days a week. She maintains an excellent GPA, assists with the Sun Valley Figure Skating Club’s “Skate-With-Us” classes, and participates in community service programs. She loves show skating. Alex first performed in the Sun Valley Summer Ice Show’s kids’ number at age six. She is excited to become a professional member of Sun Valley’s “Summer On Ice” ensemble cast. Harten credits her USFS gold medal and accomplishments in singles free skating to her primary coach, Holly Wheeler. Coach Judy Blumberg also contributed to Harten’s success in Moves in the Field. Choreographer and theatrical skating coach, Gia Guddat, and coaches Craig Heath and Joel Dear, have also helped her skating mature in style, balance and on-ice presence.

EARLY TURNS ON LOWER RIVER RUN Sun Valley Resort’s early-season snowmaking capabilities made it possible for the resort to host its second annual Sun Valley Early Season Race Camp Nov. 16-21 on Baldy’s Lower River Run ski run. Sponsored by the Sun Valley ski Education Foundation, the camp for giant slalom and slalom training attracted about 75 young racers. In this photo, Sun Valley Ski Team racer Yuri McClure takes a few turns down River Run.
The two-time defending State 1A Division 2 champion Dietrich Blue Devils fell in a hole early, but reassembled and posted a 53-39 nonconference girls’ basketball victory over visiting Carey on Nov. 20. Dietrich (4-0, 51-2 in two-plus seasons) got 21 points from senior guard Charley Bingham (four 3-pointers) as the Blue Devils stretched their unbeaten streak to 31 games since 2011. They made it 32 straight with a victory over Hansen Monday. Still, Carey (1-2) played determined defense against an outstanding Blues Devils team that had opened its 2012-13 season with a 52-point victory over Castleford and 13-point triumph over 3A Gooding.

Shiffrin shines at Aspen, Sullivan on DH podium
Filer Wildcats arrive Friday in Hailey Continued from Page B2
Alpine World Cup in Canada, Colorado Mikaela Shiffrin, Marco Sullivan and Ted Ligety led the U.S. Alpine Ski Team over Thanksgiving weekend as the 2012-13 Audi FIS World Cup arrived in North America with races in Canada and Colorado. Rising star Shiffrin, 17, of Eagle/Vail, Colo. scored the seventh top-10 of her career with a strong second run in the Nature Valley Aspen Winternational. Two-time defending U.S. slalom queen Shiffrin finished seventh in Sunday’s slalom, a day after placing ninth in the giant slalom. The finish boosted Shiffrin to fifth place in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup overall and slalom standings. U.S. Ski Team downhiller Sullivan, 32, of Squaw Valley, Ca. parlayed a strong training run Thursday plus two weeks of training at the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain into a third-place downhill finish in the opening Audi FIS Alpine World Cup speed event of the season at Lake Louise. Starting 42nd in Saturday’s downhill debut, Sullivan hit a
perfect line to tie with Austrian Klaus Kroell .64 seconds behind winner Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway. Meanwhile, Ted Ligety led four U.S. Ski Team athletes into the points Sunday finishing fourth in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup super G at Lake Louise. He missed the podium by a mere .01 seconds.
In updated World Cup standings after four races, Ligety stands in second place with 170 points behind leader Aksel Lund Svindal, 29, of Norway (200). Two-time World Cup overall king Svindal (18 career wins, 43 podiums)
swept the Lake Louise downhill and SG races. He is the reigning Olympic SG gold medalist. Slovenia’s Tina Maze, 29, the current world giant slalom champion, tops the World Cup women’s standings with 310 points. She won the Aspen GS Saturday for her 13th career victory to go with 41 podiums. Maze was last year’s World Cup overall runner-up to American Lindsey Vonn. Behind Maze is Austria’s Kathrin Zettel (260 points) and third-place Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany (174). Shiffrin has 125 points for fifth place. Vonn (10 points) is in 53rd place. The women have staged four technical races to date. Coming up: The men visit Beaver Creek, Colo. Nov. 30-Dec. 2 for downhill, SG and GS; and the women go to Lake Louise Nov. 30-Dec. 2 for two downhills and SG that will comprise the season-opening speed events.

Low snow, but Nordic races go at Yellowstone SuperTour openers BY JEFF CORDES Express Staff Writer
Cross-country skiers enjoyed powder skiing in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula last weekend. But snow levels were much lower over Thanksgiving weekend at West Yellowstone, Mont.—where snow usually is abundant over the holiday. Nevertheless the USSA West Yellowstone SuperTour races at the 7,000-foot-plus altitude went off famously last weekend for 264 Nordic racers Friday and Saturday, Nov. 23-24. There were 27 Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation current racers or alumni racers taking part. Low snow on the Rendezvous Ski Trails caused organizers to change the sprint format from full sprint rounds to a prologue. Snowmobile trails on the South Plateau just weren’t wide enough for full sprints, according to Fasterskier.com. So, on Friday they raced an individual start 9-kilometer point-to-point freestyle race. It started from about 7,260 feet above sea level and gained only about 300 feet from start to finish on rolling terrain, but the course was a challenging one. On Saturday there was a 1.6k point-to-point prologue. Top SVSEF finishes were: Chelsea Holmes second of 105 women in the 9k women’s skate, just five seconds off Rosie Bren-
nan’s winning pace; Matt Gelso and Mike Sinnott placing 2-3 in the men’s 9k; and Sinnott’s fourth in prologue. Gelso, 24, is the former University of Colorado All-American cross-country skier from Truckee (Ca.) High School and the Auburn Ski Club. Also, 19-year-old SVSEF racer Kevin Bolger won the Older Junior class of Saturday’s 1.6k prologue race; former SVSEF racer Sloan Storey, 18, was the second OJ in women’s 9k; and 17-yearold Laurel Fiddler won the J1 9k. Race winners in the 9k freestyle were Alaska Pacific University’s Brennan, 24, her first SuperTour win in nearly six years, and Boulder Mountain Ski Tour king Matt Liebsch, 29, of Orono, Minn. by six seconds over Sun Valley’s Gelso, 24. Prologue winners were Vail’s Ryan Scott, 23, a first-time winner just a day after he placed 78th in the 9k individual start freestyle, and Stratton Mountain School’s Sophie Caldwell, 22, from Vermont. In her first race as a professional skier, Dartmouth College’s Caldwell won by a full five seconds over McCall’s Anika Miller, 17, a senior at Idaho’s McCall-Donnelly High School who attended Stratton Mountain last winter. The FIS-sanctioned West Yellowstone SuperTour races had no bearing on U.S. team selec-
tion for December’s World Cup sprints in Quebec, Canada. But they were excellent training milestones for the Bozeman SuperTour freestyle and classic sprints this week that will be the World Cup qualifiers. Coming up at Bohart Ranch near Bozeman, Mt.: Freestyle sprints Thursday, Nov. 29; classic sprints on Friday; and mass start classic races (10k women, 15k men) on Saturday, Dec. 2. The Bridger Ski Foundation is organizing the event. Results from Yellowstone: Q Saturday, Nov. 24, women’s 1.6k prologue: 1—Sophie Caldwell, 22, (Stratton Mtn.

around. The coach said there is a lack of pure shooters. Miles hopes his offense will compensate for any such drawbacks. Miles said, “We’ll run a Princeton-style offense, four-out and four-in, the same kind Villanova has run successfully. It offers flashing, cutting, high screens and back doors. That sort of offense and our height advantages will fit our kids. “On defense we’ll go straight man-to-man and rely on lots of communication.” Friday’s home opener against Filer will include a “Teddy Bear Toss,” benefiting the Sawtooth Board of Realtors’ Community Holiday Baskets program that helps families in need during the holiday. Wood River cheerleading coach Amanda Ornelas said spectators are asked to bring a new, unwrapped, stuffed animal to throw onto the court at halftime of the boys’ varsity game. There will be prizes (gift certificates) for the biggest and most unique teddy bears.
Fred Trenkle Night Dec. 20 Recently retired Blaine County teacher and longtime basketball coach Fred Trenkle of Shoshone will be honored Thursday, Dec. 20 during Wood River’s home basketball game with the Buhl Tribe. Athletic director John Rade made the announcement Monday. He said, “Dec. 20, 2012 will be Fred Trenkle Night at Wood River High School. We will recognize Fred’s dedication at halftime of the boys’ varsity basketball game against Buhl.” Here is the Wood River roster for 2012-13: VARSITY Head coach, Andy Miles (1st year). Assistant coach, J.C. Nemecek. Seniors (4): Edwin Garcia, 5-10 guard; Michael Moffett, 5-9 forward; Jose Hernandez, 6-0 guard; and Nickolaus Brunker, 5-11 guard/forward.

Basketball is back for Cutthroat teams Season debuts Thursday with Red Devils BY JEFF CORDES Express Staff Writer
The Community School boys’ basketball program has a new, homegrown head coach and a solid turnout of 20 players on varsity and junior varsity for the 2012-13 season. It debuts Thursday, Nov. 29 with home games against the Murtaugh Red Devils at Sun Valley’s Fish Tank gym. Boys’ JV action begins Thursday at 4:30 p.m. followed by the girls’ JV game at 6 p.m. and the boys’ varsity non-conference contest at 7:30 p.m. First-year head coach is Mike Payne. Former Wood River High School basketball star Payne averaged 10.9 ppg as the senior cocaptain for first-year coach Dick Richel’s 17-5 Wood River squad in 1981-82 that had a 15-game win streak. He started his coaching career as an assistant for Cutthroat coach Ed Flory during the memorable 2009-10 campaign highlighted by a 13-8 record and crowd-pleasing talents of Senegal’s 6-10 Daniel Gomis. Payne said, “My first opportunity coaching was in 2009, at TCS. Ed Flory brought me in to help. That’s when I got the coaching fever. Working with an athlete like Daniel Gomis was a rare treat.” After spending the last two seasons as the head junior varsity coach at Wood River High,
Payne is relishing the prospect of working with an enthusiastic group at the Community School—10 of his players returning from last winter. The coach said, “We do have a solid roster, and a good number of kids excited to play the game. It’s a young team with great potential that is still trying to hit its basketball stride. “We will have some growing pains to work through. I hope to use every game as a learning experience, to build as the season progresses.” Last winter, the second for now-departed head coach Erik Olson (8-27), the Cutthroats made great strides with a 7-12 varsity record. It featured the program’s first district tournament win since 2008—a ninegame tourney skid that ended with a 55-50 win over Camas County behind a combined 49 points by seniors Henry Rickbeil and Will Brokaw. All-Northside Conference honorable mention selections Brokaw (18.6 ppg) and Rickbeil (11.6 ppg, 17.3 ppg district tourney) will be missed. Next-best scorer returning from last year is junior Taylor Adler (8.9 ppg). Payne said, “One of my key players, Taylor Adler, has had some knee problems and is just starting to get his mobility and fitness back.” The coach added, “It’s tough to take over a program and build
it from scratch. It takes some time. But these boys are catching on quickly. “It’s a young team. I think we’ll have a few bumps along the way. We have a lot of work to do to catch up with some of the other basketball programs in our conference. But I think we’ll be competitive.” Being competitive on the court is second nature to Payne, one of the valley’s best Outlaw League players well into his 40s and a leader on several Jivaro Headhunters Rec League champions. He acknowledges he’s asking a lot of his players, but hopes the discipline will pay off this winter and into the future. Payne said, “I have a complex offense that is going to take some time to learn, in full. Therefore I’ll be putting in some basic offensive sets and plays until we can learn the motion offense. “Because of the complexity of this motion offense, I’m reaching out to my JV and middle school teams and coaches to help teach the kids some of the basic movement. So by the time they reach the varsity team, they’ll have the basic movement of the offense down and then I can refine their movements to take advantage of our strengths, and hide our weaknesses. “Defense is simple. It’s the most important part of the game so we’ll be playing straight up,
man-to-man. I’ll put in some zone, but we’ll rely mostly on tenacious defense to get us through tight games.” After Thursday’s opener, the Cutthroat varsity continues its 17-game schedule Thursday, Dec. 6 at home with Bliss. The team’s seven Northside Conference league games will begin Jan. 10 and include games against Carey, Camas County, Bliss, Castleford, Murtaugh, Lighthouse Christian and Richfield. The league tournament opens Feb. 11. Here is the Community School roster: VARSITY Head coach, Mike Payne (1st year). Assistant coach, Connor Wade. Seniors (2): Ken Cheng, 6-0 post; and Colton Sholtis, 6-2 post. Juniors (7): Taylor Adler, 6-0 forward; Bobby Corker, 6-1 forward; Doug DuFur, 5-8 guard; Nick Krekow, 6-0 post; Reed Roudabush, 6-0 forward; Ben Swift, 5-9 forward; and Nick Wright, 5-11 forward. Freshmen (1): Gunner Gibson, 5-8 guard. JUNIOR VARSITY Head coach, Mike Wade. Assistant coach, Connor Wade. Sophomores (1): Peter Huo, 5-10 guard/forward. Freshmen (9): Pierson Carlsen, 5-5 guard; Daniel DuFur, 5-7 guard; Alex Feldman, 6-1 post/forward; Evan Marks, 5-9 guard; Cole Miller, 5-11 post; Garrett Rawlings, 5-11 post/forward; Keegan Whitelaw, 5-7 guard; Colby Wright, 5-10 post; and Todd Yu, 5-7 guard.
Wolverine girls open Aggie women grab Great Great Basin slate Alaska Shootout title Hoops with Minico, Jerome With three games under their belts, Wood River High School girls’ basketball players are debuting their Great Basin Conference schedule with two home league games this week. Actually, it’s a busy stretch of three games in five days. Coach Matt Newhouse’s Wolverines (0-3) hosted the Minico Spartans (1-3) Tuesday night—the Spartans owning only a 48-35 home win over Buhl to go with two lopsided losses to 5A Madison and a ninepoint road loss at Preston. Wood River hosts Jerome (2-2) Thursday, Nov. 29. The Tigers won 43-37 at Mountain Home last Tuesday and also beat Kimberly 56-34, to go with losses at Filer 50-45 and at State 4A champion Middleton 50-21. Then, Wood River visits Buhl (1-2) Saturday, Dec. 1 for a 5 p.m. varsity game. Wood River showed improvement last Tuesday with a 40-30 home loss to 3A Gooding (1-3) on the Hailey hardwoods. Assistant coach J.C. Nemecek said, “The girls displayed a lot of heart and had their fewest turnovers of the season, 19 compared to 22 for Gooding.” Trailing by a dozen points at halftime, Wood River (23% field goal shooting to Gooding’s 38%) sliced its deficit to 36-28 in the fourth quarter. Eight different Wolverines ended up scoring, and sophomore Samantha Sutton was a defensive standout (6 steals, 4 assists, 4 points). Hailey contributors: Sydney Tidwell (8 points, 7 rebounds); Ciceley Peavey (6 points, 4 steals, 2 assists, 2 rebounds); Kenya Schott (4 points); Hannah Belloli (2 points, 2 steals, 2 assists, 5 rebounds); Haylee Pettit (2 points, 4 boards); Giselle Andrade (2 points, 2 rebounds); and Kennedie Howard (2 points). Tia Conrad scored 13 points for the Senators. Meanwhile, the Wood River freshmen won their game 33-31 over Gooding.
First tourney win for Utah State cagers Haylee Thompson celebrated a pair of Great Basin Conference tournament championships while playing girls’ basketball for Hailey’s Wood River High School in 2011 and 2012. It took only five collegiate games for the 6-1 freshman forward to celebrate a tournament championship with the Utah State University women’s basketball team last week. On Wednesday, the Aggies of firstyear coach Jerry Finkbeiner won the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout tourney with a 67-57 victory over the host University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves, at Sullivan Arena in Anchorage. It was the first-ever tournament title for Utah State, now in its 25th season of women’s basketball. The pre-season No. 1 in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC), Utah State (2-3) also defeated Prairie View A&M 67-66 last Tuesday. Thompson, 18, Wood River’s top scorer (15.0 ppg) and an Idaho AllState player last winter, played 14 minutes with 3 rebounds, 1 blocked shot and 1 steal in the hard-fought semi-final win over Prairie View. She played six minutes with 2 rebounds in Wednesday’s title game triumph. Utah State’s hero in Alaska was 5-7 senior guard Devyn Christensen, a native of Caldwell who earned the Idaho 5A Player of the Year honor in 2008 while playing for Vallivue High School.
Christensen was voted the Shootout’s Most Outstanding Player and also earned the WAC Women’s Basketball Player of the Week honors for her two-game performance of 28.0 ppg, 6.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 4.0 steals. Her sixth 3-pointer of the game with eight seconds remaining gave Utah State its 67-66 win over Prairie View A&M. She also went over 1,000 career points in that game. Then, in the title game, Christensen (1,033 career points) scored a career-high 32 points for the champions. Thompson and Christensen are the two active Idaho players on the 11-player Utah State roster for 2012-13. A third Idaho player, 6-0 junior forward Kali Roche from Parma High School, is ineligible this season after transferring from Utah Valley. Roche was a state girls’ singles tennis champion for Parma in addition to being an All-State basketball star. Utah State traveled for its first six games of the 29-game season including Tuesday’s game against the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. The Aggies debut at home in Logan Saturday, Dec. 1 at 2 p.m. against Montana State. Next season, Utah State will join the Mountain West Conference. Thompson, averaging just under 3.0 points and 3.0 rebounds a game for Utah State, is the fourth-leading scorer in Wolverine annals with 780 points (10.7 ppg) in 73 games.

Join in a community reflection on the Christmas season The community is invited to St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 201 Sun Valley Rd., on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 5:30 p.m. for “Reflections on Christ’s Nativity: a Service of Advent Lessons, Carols, Prayers and Poetry.” Organizers say this event is a way to escape the frenzied tempo of the holiday season and find the true meaning of the warmth, love, connection and spirituality of Christmas. The service will have several readings from the Old and New Testaments complemented by prayers honoring the gift of Jesus and his message of hope to the world. Inspirational Christmas music, anthems and carols have been selected to be interspersed throughout the service. Several poems by such esteemed poets as Rainer Maria Rilke, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Robert Frost, Billy Collins, Madeline L’Engle and William Butler Yeats will be recited. In addition, a special poem written by local resident JoEllen Collins, “In Saint Peter’s,” will be read by the author. Refreshments will be served to all immediately after the service. Call Sara at 726-5349 for more information.
‘La Clemenza di Tito’ Live in HD from the NY Metropolitan Opera runs “La Clemenza di Tito” will be presented Live in HD this Saturday, December 1, at 11 a.m. at the Bigwood Cinemas in Hailey. The virtuosic Elina Garanca sings Sesto in Mozart’s drama set in ancient Rome. Giuseppe Filianoti is the noble Tito and Barbara Frittoli is Vitellia, in this handsome revival of one of the composer’s final masterpieces. Harry Bicket conducts. The commission came from the impresario Domenico Guardasoni, who lived in Prague and who had been charged by the Estate of Bohemia with providing a new work to celebrate the coronation of Leopold II, Holy Roman Emperor as King of Bohemia. The premiere took place a few hours after Leopold’s coronation. The opera was first performed publicly on Sept. 6, 1791 at the Estates Theatre in Prague. The opera remained popular for many years after Mozart’s death. It was the first Mozart opera to reach London, receiving its première there at His Majesty’s Theatre on March, 27, 1806. Tickets for all MET HD:Live operas are available at the theatre box office at 801 N. Main Street Hailey. Cost is $22 for adults; $20 for Seniors and $18 for Students.

New film entices with mixed bag of ski adventures By JENNIFER LIEBRUM
Express Staff Writer
ream it and they’ve probably skied it in the latest outrageously off-the-grid collection of adventures compiled in this year’s Powderwhore Productions’ eighth annual backcountry ski film, “Choose Your Adventure.” The Utah company comes to town Thursday, Nov. 29, to preview the film to local audiences at 8 p.m. at Whiskey Jacques’. Look closely at the scenes shot in South America, because Drew Stoecklein, son of cowboy photographer Dave, makes an appearance.
Noah Howell, of Powderwhore Productions, said in a release about the film, “This movie is such a mixed bag of characters, exotic locations and action that we wanted to get that point across with the title. You really can’t guess what’s coming next in this film, like the Choose Your Own Adventure book series we enjoyed growing up.” Among the destinations are an abandoned mining town in the Arctic, dropping cliffs with Hugo Harrison in British Columbia, plunging into the Antarctic Sea in speedos, blasting through deep powder, catching up with crusty locals in the Wasatch and more.
“Our interest lies in finding people with real stories and ski objectives,” Howell said. “We wanted to tag along and capture their actions and motivation for heading into the mountains, creating more of an authentic experience. We traveled light and moved fast to avoid interfering with the actual adventures as they unfolded.” Despite the underwhelming winter of 2011-12, in which snowfall reached near record lows and unstable avalanche conditions, the Powderwhores were able to make the most of the conditions at home and abroad, with trips to Cerro Castillo, Chile; La Grave, France; the Antarctic See POWDER, Page C3
SNRA on TV The historic recreation area is subject of PBS documentary By JENNIFER LIEBRUM Express Staff Writer

The Sawtooth National Recreation area recently celebrated 40 years of glory and service to all manner of wild life and recreation lover.
“A Sawtooth Celebration,” an homage to the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, will air on Idaho Public Television this Sunday, Dec. 2, at 7 p.m. “The Sawtooths, the White Clouds, the Boulders—they’re more than just mountain ranges,” said “Outdoor Idaho” Executive Producer and show host Bruce Reichert. “They represent a vision that, 40 years ago, was considered quite unusual in Idaho—a national recreation area.” For more than 100 years, various political leaders had pushed to make the Sawtooth Mountains Idaho’s first national park, said Reichert. But it was not to be. In 1972, the three mountain ranges became the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, administered not by the National Park Service, but by the U.S. Forest Service. “How this came to be is a story worth the telling,” said Reichert. “As we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Sawtooth NRA, it’s fair to ask, what was gained and what was lost and what is yet to be considered?” See the beauty of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area on Idaho Public Television’s debut of “A Sawtooth Celebration” through the people, photographers, naturalists and stewards of this magnificent region that is an Idaho gem. The Sawtooth NRA includes the Sawtooths, the White Clouds and the Boulder mountains north of Ketchum.

In New York, play readings are used as an opportunity to fine-tune a script or to sell it to an actor or production company. The environment there, more workshop-like than well-oiled performance, doesn’t always lend itself to a quality night of entertainment, but it can bring about star sightings, and a lucky few can claim to have been there when the script, now playing on Broadway or interpreted for the cinema, was first incubated. Here in the valley, audiences have been able to enjoy the polished results of that East Coast vetting process and regular star sightings from actors like Pamela Sue Martin, Jim Jarrett, Claudia McCain, Patsy Wygle and Keith Moore and others who call Sun Valley a retreat from the theatrical outposts of New York and Los Angeles. The nexStage Theatre on Ketchum’s Main Street has hosted readings, directed by Jon Kane, for the past 12 years. On Thursday, Nov. 29, actors Andrew Alburger, Charlotte Baker, Scott Creighton, Dawson Howard and Keith Moore will gather in this tradition to read “The Weir.” The playwright, Conor McPherson, has been hailed as one of Ireland’s premier playwrights and “The Weir” was the recipient of the Olivier Award in London for Best New Play and then played on Broadway to rave reviews. In this tale of the supernatural, McPherson demonstrates his remarkable skill as a riveting storyteller. In a bar in rural Ireland, local men swap spooky stories in an attempt to impress a young woman from Dublin who recently moved into a nearby “haunted” house. However, the tables are soon turned when she spins a yarn of her own. The London Telegraph wrote, “Sheer theatrical magic. I have rarely been so convinced that I have just seen a modern classic. Tremendous.” The paper called McPherson “a distinctive talent to cherish.” It’s a classic example of what the community has come to expect, along with free wine and cookies. “The reading series began because we wanted to explore the texts of interesting and important new playwrights in a way that is affordable to produce,” explains Kathy Wygle, founder and manager of nexStage. “We can also select cutting-edge material that otherwise would not be able to be seen in this valley. “It also is a way for many of the great actors in this town to work on their craft and explore a variety of roles in an informal setting.” And for novice theater-goers, Wygle says, “we have found that the readings serve as a free introduction to theater for many in our audience and a real education and introduction to the best writing in the modern theater.” Wygle says it is the informality of the setting that entices as
Several talented actors will convene this week to read “The Weir” at nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Wine, cookies and playreading are all free. well, giving people a glimpse at the process of preparing a play for full staging. It always makes for thoughtprovoking theater. As was found when Charlotte Hemmings read “My name is Rachel Corrie,” the story of a young American activist killed in Gaza by an Israeli bulldozer, a reading can generate powerful emotional responses, despite the lack of props, gestures, sets and sound effects of a full production. Controversy swirled for months after the reading, which was attended by Craig and Cindy Corrie, the woman’s parents, who turned over emails and journal entries that were cobbled into her story. Some labeled all associated with the play Palestinian sympathizers while others criticized the backlash as disrespectful and inappropriate. At the time, in 2010, Kane responded to the vitriol with a letter to the editor of his own, which read in part, “I stand by my statements that I am neither pro-Palestinian nor anti-Israeli, and that my sole reasons behind producing the readings was to share this extraordinary play and work of art with the Wood River Valley. Rachel Corrie was an extremely idealistic young woman who chose to go to Palestine to work for human rights. The play is her story and her truths through her writings and her perceptions cannot be disputed or challenged.” He argued that the reading was an opportunity to showcase Hemmings’ talent and said he was ashamed to have heard from the Corries, who had done similar readings around the world, including in Israel, that the audience on one of the nights “was the most contentious they had ever faced. This is not a distinction that we should be proud of in this valley.” But as they say, the show must go on, and Kane continues to bring timely, amusing, engaging and, yes, sometimes infuriating readings to the theater. “The reason I wanted to start the series is because I had attended a lot of readings in New York City

when working in the theater there and always thought they were a lot more compelling than they appeared,” he says. “It also gave me the chance to hear great new plays in an informal setting and almost share the evening with the actors in a way that is not possible when you attend a production. “The nexStage Theatre felt the same way that I do and were excited to launch their own series focusing on great contemporary plays and playwrights. It also has the given the chance for excellent local actors to explore a variety of roles that they would otherwise never get a chance to tackle.” Like Wygle, he feels the setting and style has encouraged what he describes as a strong and attentive following. “It’s a tremendous introduction to theater and great writing for those who are being exposed to theater for the first time, and it’s a wonderful opportunity to hear new, cutting-edge plays that for economic reasons would not be produced in the valley.” Pamela Sue Martin says she enjoys being invited to read or just to attend these readings because of Kane’s selections. “Jon Kane as an eye for the most interesting and humorous playwrights,” she said in an email from Baja, Mexico. From the dark humor of the Irish to the Palestinian crisis, I always know that I will have an amazing time at his readings. I’ve enjoyed watching them, and even been willing to appear in a few, because they are so good. Locals who know theater love to come to his readings—they are highly entertaining and the price is right!”

When valley resident Dani Stern attended Lunafest two years ago with her daughter Sierra, one film in particular, about knitting, sparked a passion. “She’s been knitting away ever since,” the mother said of her sixth-grader. Pastimes, diversions, inspiration and goals are important to impart to her daughter, not just because that’s what moms do, but because Stern is battling cancer and doesn’t know when her on-the-job training might end. The films about women and girls are brought to the valley each year as LunaFest, a benefit for Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley, a self-esteemraising club that emphasizes strength in life using running as one of the many empowerment tools. The festival—scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1, at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum—also includes a reception and silent auction, with items such as a painting by valley artist Melissa Graves Brown, a package for chiropractic care, dinner at DaVinci’s restaurant, tickets to the play “You’re a Good Man Charlie Brown,” snowshoes, shopping sprees and even a private party at Whiskey Jacques’ saloon in Ketchum. As a Girl Scout leader for the past decade, Stern is drawn to participate in empowerment programs like the scouts and Girls on the Run because it not only gives her a chance to bond with her daughter, but also exposes her daughter to other like-minded mothers who Sierra can lean on when things are overwhelming. “They are women that I know will take an active role in her life
when I’m gone,” she said. “They are women that know me well enough to keep her on the path I would choose for her.” Stern, wife of chiropractor Aaron Stern, is also a mother to Asher, 8. As parents, they strive to keep the kids moving forward and

not using cancer as an excuse not to live each day to its fullest. Stern said she believes there is a correlation between her situation—keeping her confidence up for her ongoing fight with cancer—and the determination that
Girls on the Run stokes in girls by setting their sights on the end goal of a final five-kilometer race. “I think it’s a great way for girls to be active, strong and to work together,” she said. But the emphasis of the program is not just on learning how to run. The club is more about dealing with life’s challenges, such as self-esteem issues, bullying and body image, as well as service to the community. Executive Director Mary Fauth said the films are not all overtly messagefilled; some are just documentaries of interesting people and the things that they do. The knitting film that caught Sierra’s eye was about a group of women of all ages, and some men, who turned their talent at knitting into a community beautification project. Knitted “cozies” were placed on posts and trees, similar to the artwork seen around Ketchum on utility boxes. Stern said the process of knitting calms her daughter in difficult times or when the stress of her mother’s illness is overbearing. Some of Sierra’s teachers let her knit in class to help her focus. It has also gotten her linked with her grandma, who lives far away, but shares the interest. Sierra is now trying to get a club started to knit together and is looking for projects that would benefit from her skills. “One little film has had a big impact on our family,” Stern said. And because she’s lost her hair from chemotherapy sessions, Stern has been given a number of “amazing” hats that Sierra has made.

Could you be a NedHead? Upcoming concert at Whiskey’s could create converts By JENNIFER LIEBRUM Express Staff Writer
By the age of 2, most of us have learned the upsides and downside to fit-pitching. Ask Ned Evett about his and he’ll tell you how it led to a groundbreaking style in guitar playing that when paired with his incredible voice makes for an original blues sound. Evett’s talents will be on display at Whiskey Jacques’ on Friday, Nov. 30, at 9 p.m. A $5 cover is all it costs to see a musician who USA Today dubbed “the master of the glass-necked fretless guitar.” Guitar Magazine called him, “the world’s first fretless guitar rockstar.” Evett’s music is described

He writes all his own songs, which run the gamut from instrumental riffs to hard-rocking blues. Five albums into his career, Ned Evett’s latest, “Treehouse” was produced in Nashville by Adrian Belew, and mixed by Avett Brothers/Flogging Molly mix engineer Ryan Hewitt.
The fretless style came about in 1990, explains a bio on his website, when he smashed his Strat onstage. “Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Ned recovered the unbroken neck, removed the frets, and developed a groundbreaking style that is all his own.” Perhaps it was his sculptor side interest, or just frugality, but what evolved is described as his trademark, a fretless mirrored glass-and-steel resonator called the “Globro.” Around this time last year, he released his latest, which is described as a 14-song diary of love, loss, redemption and the future. To get a sampling of the music that has led to a legion of NedHeads, visit www.nedevett.com.

Christmas Bazaar showcases handmade gifts Popular craft show benefits kid programs By JENNIFER LIEBRUM Express Staff Writer
H FI O N M D S IM E S P LY . .
There’s nothing like a handcrafted Christmas ornament, decoration or simply a gift to feel the true spirit of giving this season. Knowing that someone’s hard work and creativity will become a part of Christmas past and future seems as rewarding as the giving. For 22 years now, the Papoose Club, whose mission is to support local youthoriented groups through fundraising activities and events in the Wood River Valley, has provided a venue for such heartfelt exchanges at its annual Holiday Bazaar, held at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum, Saturday, Dec. 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 2, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Holiday Bazaar is a juried arts show that features high-quality handcrafted goods from more than 50 vendors from across the Intermountain West. A wide assortment of gift items will be available for purchase, including ceramics, hand-blown glass, clothing, jewelry, handbags, birdhouses, home décor, textiles and edibles. “This is a fantastic event that really brings out the entire community,” said Alexis Lindberg-Stedman, chair of the 2012 Holiday Bazaar. “We’re really excited about the variety and quality of items that will be available at the Bazaar this year.” Some highlights this year include Regina H. Smith, with her jewelry from recycled and reclaimed materials. The Boise artist creates one-of-a-kind items and does custom work as well from a client’s sentimental hand-me-downs. Braden Jon Anderson will present, as part of his collection, ornamental orbs
and teardrop glass mini-terrariums for the holiday season. Also available will be decorative apothecary-jar terrariums as well as other vessels. The terrariums, eco-chic and fast becoming a must-have home décor item, can be custom-sized for centerpieces or as a specialized gift of living art for the holidays. Each terrarium is unique and individual. “Creating and enjoying terrariums is inspiring,” Anderson said. “I like the art of creating and watching something grow. The composition of the living elements of the plants combined with the rocks, lights and branches as well as other adornments present a one-of-a-kind composition anyone can enjoy.” Moving into the realm of the nostalgic are the gingerbread houses of Dan Freeman, which started as a fun family project and evolved into what he calls a “magical process.” The accomplished artist and painter has developed a unique method for painting with transparent acrylics on glass, creating a backlit look like stained glass. He is also patenting a method for mixing colorants. The musician also is the greenhouse coordinator for the Sage School, where the greenhouse produces a couple thousand pounds of tomatoes each year. “I started building gingerbread houses in 2008, Freeman said. “It started as just a fun family project, but a style emerged pretty quickly and we got attached to the ‘magical’ process and result.” Alvie Kratzer’s avocation makes every day a holiday. The whittler’s folk-art Santas and Father Christmases started in 1987, after he retired and moved to Challis. He said he begins every day in his shop, believing that “the whole object is to pour

His one-of-a-kind creations are colorful and whimsical, inviting year-long display, not just at Christmas. Why Santas? “I just like him,” Kratzer said. “He’s interesting, he’s patient, waiting for you.” Over the course of the weekend, Papoose Club volunteers will be offering fresh soup in the Soup Café and selling
homemade holiday cookies by the dozen. Tickets for Papoose Club’s famous raffle are also available for purchase, with a fabulous array of raffle items, including a 2012-13 Sun Valley adult season ski pass. As a special treat, Santa Claus will make an appearance at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday. There will also be a creative children’s activity sponsored by The Bead Shop in Hailey, a booth where children can write letters to Santa, and live musical entertainment all weekend long.

7-0 as 8th graders, 6-0 as 7th graders
he Wood River Middle School eighth-grade football team earned its second straight unbeaten season Oct. 16 with a 24-0 home conference win over Jerome at Hailey’s Chuck Turner Field. It was the team’s third straight shutout after 52-0 and 38-0 road wins over Burley and Gooding. The victory capped a 7-0 campaign during which the young Wolverines out-scored opponents 208-26. Last year as seventh graders, the squad was 6-0 outscoring its foes 236-6. So, over two years, the group was 13-0 with a 444-32 scoring edge. The 2012 team’s coaches were Craig Kaminski, Chris Malmgren and Rob Swanson. The seven-game season lasted from Sept. 4 through Oct. 16. Other home wins were 14-8 over previously unbeaten West Minico of Paul and 32-6 over O’Leary of Twin Falls. Other road wins were 24-6 over East Minico of Rupert and 24-6 over Stuart of Twin Falls 24-6. Kaminski said, “Following an undefeated season in 2011, this group had a bulls eye focused on them, and they continued to perform. They were a special group of self-motivated kids, who seemed to understand they were only as good as their weakest link. Their preparation and work ethic in practice was second to none.” The coach was proud that his team has a season motto based on the principles of the Tommy Valentine “All In, All the Time” Foundation.
In 2008, Navy SEAL Valentine was killed during a parachute training exercise in Arizona. An elite warrior, Valentine was a part of the elite and secretive Naval Special Warfare Development Group. Two years ago Valentine’s wife set up a tribute fund to help surviving spouses and children of fallen military personnel. Valentine is survived by a wife and two young children. Kaminski said, “Prior to each game we picked three captains who wore an ‘All In, All the Time’ hat. The kids loved it. When we took the field the captains wore their hats and walked in unison on to the field.” Visit the Tommy Valentine Memorial Fund Web site, or send direct donations to “All In, All the Time” Memorial Fund, P.O.

Most plants lose their leaves in the fall when it turns colder. This strategy protects the rest of the plant. Plants usually lose their leaves when conditions in the environment, such as drought or cold, become too harsh for the plant. Plants lose a lot of water through their leaves. The leaves basically sweat, losing water into the air. In drought conditions, losing the leaves helps the tree keep water in other parts of the plant. The tree doesnâ€™t dry out as much. Other plants have leaves that canâ€™t HANDLE THE COLD 7HEN the first frost comes, leaves die and drop off. The plants suck back all the sugars and other nutrients, or food, that the leaves were using. Plants store these nutrients through the winter until they need the stored food to grow new leaves in the spring.
A different way
Changing with the times
Evergreens have adapted a different way of surviving. They keep their leaves on. As the weather turns colder, chemicals, or substances, in evergreens begin to change. Special parts of their leaves change fats, proteins and sugars into a kind of antifreeze. This antifreeze substance allows the leaves to stay on the tree during the cold winter.
Evergreen trees change their chemistry in other ways too. The whole plant, right down to the fragile twigs, becomes hardier in the cold. Evergreens that grow high in the mountains may need even more protection. These mountain trees build up even more antifreeze chemicals in their leaves. They donâ€™t grow tall. That way, they limit their exposure to the wind and cold.

Conifers Not easy being green
Redwood trees can grow as high as 367 feet, about as high as a 35-story skyscraper. They have been growing in the California area for 20 million years.

This evergreen forest in North Cascades National Park in Washington is a scenic setting for a horseback ride.
Christmas trees are conifers +!(. UH FIRS OR TREES WHERE the seeds are held in cones. Most conifers are evergreens. These include pines, spruces and firs. Conifers have developed many different strategies for survival. For example, one of the oldest trees in the world is a bristlecone pine that is about 5,000 years old. This pine can shut itself down in times of stress, such as severe drought. Then, when the rains come again, it wakes up. Redwood trees are so tall that fires donâ€™t usually reach their leaves. Conifers grow in a kind of triangle shape. Their branches are full and wide at the bottom and thin and narrow at the top. This allows sunlight to reach needles throughout the whole tree. Top branches donâ€™t block the sun from the bottom leaves.
Conifers have leaves shaped like needles. The thin needles offer more surfaces for absorbing sunlight. Their shape allows them to hold onto water better than flat leaves. The leaves are also covered with a waxy substance that helps seal in Scotch pine needles water. Conifers do not lose their leaves every year, so the leaves have to be tough to survive for years.
The Mini Page thanks Paul Schaberg, U.S. Forest Service, for help with this issue.
Next week, The Mini Page offers suggestions for your holiday reading.

The green color in plants is caused by chlorophyll (KLOR-uh-fil). This substance makes it possible for the plant to absorb, or take in, sunlight. The energy from sunlight allows the plant to create sugars, or food. This process is called photosynthesis FOE TOE 3). THE SIS One advantage to staying green all year long is that the plant can keep making sugars all year. Even in the middle of winter, there are usually sunny days. There is also a risk to keeping fragile plant parts such as leaves alive and exposed in the winter. If the winter is especially harsh, the plant could be damaged. But evergreens trade the risks for the benefits of being able to make more food.

Resin Have you ever grabbed the trunk of a Christmas tree and gotten sticky stuff all over your hands? Special cells in conifer wood produce resin (REH-zun), a sticky substance that helps protect the trees. If the tree is hurt, resin oozes into the wound, helping it to heal. Evergreens use resin to push out insects.

Hard work, respect and love make for a good man Jon Adams of Hailey The Idaho Mountain Express invited local high school students to write a profile on a local senior citizen for a chance to win an internship at the paper. The 9th graders in Stacy Smith’s Writing Club at Wood River High School stepped up to the challenge. The top ten entries in this contest will be printed in the D section for the next few months; the winner will be announced on Wednesday, Jan. 9, in the B section of the paper.
By COURTNEY HALL
Wood River High School
on Adams is my wonderful grandfather and has always been one to inspire me, so I decided to learn more about this amazing man. During this interview I learned many incredible things about Jon that I never even knew. My grandpa Jon interestingly enough is related to John Adams and John Quincy Adams, which my family came to learn during the research of my sixth grade family tree project. He is a retired man who spends most
of his time in his workshop creating fine works of art with wood. One of his interesting and exciting stories started when he was half way to Cuba. The flight attendant came over the intercom and explained the plane would be turning around and flying back to Tampa Florida. They hit the ground as they landed and taxied back and pulled into the terminal and docked. Jon found out that his trip would be cut short due to the invasion in Cuba; that is known today as the Bay of Pigs. He clarified that this was to be his greatest journey due to the amount of time he spent planning the trip and being left on his own by the airliner companies to find his own way back home. If he were to have planned his trip any sooner and been in Cuba at the time, he would most likely not be here today. Another fond memory of my grandpa’s was when he was only 4 years old. World War II was happening, and he remembers smashing tin cans as a kid for use in the war. Jon grew up in Peoria, Illinois, losing his father at the young age of seventeen. His father passed away in a boating
accident. Although my grandpa beat the paramedics to the accident by several minutes, Jon jumped in the water to try and save his dad but once he got him to shore he knew it was too late, so my grandfather slipped his dad’s ring off his finger and put it on. Jon has never taken it off to this day. He said this experience taught him many things, including being more grateful for the things you have, it also gave Jon a grasp on becoming a strong-willed selfcompelled man. He was then the man of the house and said that he had to work harder physically back then to keep up around the house and provide for his family, he had to do more work then any kid would ever have to do now days. One of his biggest lessons growing up was to learn how to be an strong individual and make hard decisions on his own. Jon’s plans for the future in high school were to
go to college and join the Air Force. He did exactly what he strived towards. Although he made it into the Air Force, Jon’s only regret in life was not becoming a fighter pilot due to the fact that he was color blind. The Air Force said he could work in a different field but they wouldn’t allow him to become a pilot. Jon’s advice to the younger generation would be, “Work hard, respect others, and love your family as much as possible, if not all the time.” I think my grandfather has some great wisdom and insight about life and I hope that I can share his amazing stories and wisdom to my children and others one day. Today Jon is a amazing, strong, smart individual and I’m proud to call him my grandfather. He is the man that’s always working whether it’s in his workshop or on the yard, he is always on the go.

The holly tree is an evergreen. Its shiny leaves and bright red berries make it a perfect symbol for the winter holidays. Its tough, waxy leaves help it survive the cold. This is a flowering dahoon holly.

The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in New York City sparkles with about 25,000 lights.
A sign of life For thousands of years, evergreen trees and bushes have been symbols, or signs, of hope during the dark, cold winters. Ancient people decorated their homes with evergreen branches during the winter solstice* (SOLEstis), or the shortest day of the year. *It comes on Dec. 21 or 22 each year.
Trees that stayed green in the winter, even when other plants looked dead, reminded people that spring would come again. Ancient people hung evergreen branches over their doors and windows to protect their families and keep out evil spirits.
In the 1500s, Christians borrowed from the ancient people. They began bringing evergreen boughs and trees into their homes at Christmastime. They added decorations and lights. Today, the Christmas tree is one of the most beloved symbols of the season. Although some Christmas trees are still harvested from the forest, about 98 percent are now grown on Christmas tree farms. Evergreens take from seven to 10 years to grow big enough to be used as Christmas trees. Christmas tree farmers often have to trim the trees at the top so they look more like traditional Christmas trees. The Scotch pine is the most popular Christmas tree sold in the U.S.

Have all the beautiful Christmas trees, pine boughs, wreaths and holly decorations put you in the spirit of the season? These holiday decorations all come from evergreens. They are exactly what their name sounds like — ever green. Their leaves stay green on the plant all year round. The Mini Page spoke with an expert from the U.S. Forest Service to find out more about evergreens.
