One dollar

Romney coming to raise funds

out in front

Republican presidential candidate scheduled for fundraiser with former vice president Cheney. By Angus M. Thuermer Jr.

p.m. July 2 in Town Hall. Halpin plans to build a house on the property, which is northwest of the intersection of Tribal Trails Road and South Park Loop, he said. Halpin paid $3,611 in county taxes for each property in 2011. The town of Jackson does not impose an additional property tax. Being within city limits would move the properties out of the rural fire tax district and result in slightly lower taxes. Although the annexation may help with future tax rates, the landowners would have to pay hefty overhead fees to become a part of the town. Connecting water and sewer service to the 30-acre area would cost $70,500. The same connection would cost $21,200 for the third lot, according to a public notice in the June 6 edition of the Jackson Hole News&Guide. Annexations are permitted under Wyoming statute if the proposed land fits within a natural, geographic or

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is scheduled to visit Jackson Hole and former Vice President Dick Cheney on July 12 for a fundraiser. The candidate, who has raised campaign cash twice in Teton County, is expected at a number of events, most of which will be invitation-only fundraisers, Republican supporters said this week. Among the gatherings will be cocktail party reception hosted by Dick and Lynne Cheney for a reported $2,500 donation and a dinRomney ner that could cost attendees significantly more. Former Wyoming Rep. Clarene Law, a Republican stalwart who keeps pictures of herself with Romney above her desk, said she’s excited about his return. “But I’m more excited about his candidacy,” the innkeeper said. Romney raised money in Jackson Hole in August 2007 and honored Law by agreeing to a free rally in the meeting room of her Antler Motel. “That impressed me,” she said of his willingness to have an event for the

Wanted: 45 acres annexed Indian Springs landowner is looking to vote in town elections, save on taxes. By Benjamin Graham Landowners in the Indian Springs Ranch subdivision just west of Jackson have petitioned to annex three lots, totaling 45 acres, to the town. The main reason for seeking annexation is to be able to participate in town politics, said Michael Halpin, a developer and conservationist who owns 30 of the acres in question. The lots are adjacent to town boundaries, and each is permitted by the county for the development of a single home. “Personally, for me and my family, it’s the ability to vote in town elections,” Halpin said of the annexation request. “The other benefit is property taxes are lower.” A public hearing on the annexation will be held at 6

Arts and culture drive business in Teton County Audiences spent $31.3M at valley businesses in ’10. By Katy Niner A new study found arts and culture organizations are economic engines, not siphons, in Teton County, even when facing recessional headwinds. Nonprofit arts and culture delivered a total economic contribution in Teton County of more than $49.2 mil-


lion in fiscal year 2010, according to the study recently released by Americans for the Arts. The economic impact of arts in the county eclipsed the national median — $9.1 million — for similarly sized regions, defined as fewer than 50,000 residents. It even nosed past the national median of $49.1 million, which includes major cities. The numbers put the Teton County arts community among the ranks of small metropolitan areas such as 2A 3A 8A

The nonprofit arts and culture industry supports 1,011 jobs in Teton County, and generates $4.7 million in revenue for local and state government, the Arts & Economic Prosperity IV study found. The study is a “stamp of approval for arts and culture organizations in Teton County,” said Cindee George, executive director of the Center for the Arts, which spearheaded the survey locally. 9A Roscoe pushes gas 12A County budget shell game 13A Competition for hospital work

“This report is breaking down the misconception that the community supports arts and culture at the expense of the local economy,” said Mike Swanson, co-director of marketing at the Grand Teton Music Festival, another key participant in local data collection. Instead, it shows that money spent on the arts is “not going to waste — it’s very important for the overall health of the economy in Jackson.”

Bidders raise stink over latrine contract Contractors vying for controversial county contract say the winning bid is unrealistic. By Kevin Huelsmann

Teton County commissioners on Tuesday approved a $72,000 cleaning contract with the company White Glove, despite concerns from another bidder that the price was unrealistic and could result in unsightly conditions. TJ Strahorn, whose company Get Green submitted the second-lowest bid, said his company spent more than $50,000 alone on supplies when it held the cleaning contract between 2009 and 2011. His company bid slightly more than $89,000 in 2010 and had to cut labor to meet that bid. “I find it hard to believe White Glove knows exactly what they’re getting into,” he said Tuesday during a meeting. Frank Lyons, whose son and daughter-in-law operate another company that bid on the contract, also said the White Glove bid proposal didn’t seem to address the time it takes to keep up with all of the bathrooms. “Given the cost of supplies, gas and equipment, I don’t see how anyone could spend the required 12 to 16 hours per day doing this work in the summer and bid less than $100,000,” he said in an email sent to commissioners. Elbow Grease, the company that currently holds the contract, bid $103,000 last year. Commissioners and county staff, however, said they were comfortable with White Glove’s proposal. They said they could rescind their contract at any time it appeared that the company couldn’t keep the bathrooms clean. Commissioners said they expected staff at the Teton County/Jackson Parks and Recreation Department to monitor bathrooms and follow up with White Glove if they weren’t up to standards.

Parks and Recreation Director Steve Ashworth said he met with staff from White Glove and walked through what the contract required. “There’s no reason to believe they couldn’t do the job,” he said. Ashworth said the company handled cleaning duties for the county for 20 years and has been working in the valley steadily. White Glove submitted the lowest bid of the six companies vying for the contract, which is up for renewal every year. It bid $71,993 for the contract, which runs July 1 to June 30, 2013. Get Green said it could do the job for $87,543. The highest bid was $116,450. Ashworth said county staff essentially would have had to disqualify White Glove to throw out the low bid. “If we don’t go with the lowest price, we have to determine that the lowest bidder can’t meet the requirements,” he said. The cleaning contract was the subject of an investigation last year. Deputy County Attorney Keith Gingery reviewed the bid award after allegations emerged that county staff had shared the bid of Get Green with the owner of Elbow Grease. The allegations were based on an anonymous email tip, and county staff members couldn’t substantiate the claims. They did, however, try to institute new bidding policies. Gingery said he developed a chart for county staff that clearly shows what process needs to be followed for particular purchases and contracts. He also said county staff has pushed for public bid openings. By opening sealed bids in public, it allows other contractors to see what other companies bid, Gingery said. They also get to see county staff break the seal on the other bids. Though some improvements have been made, including requiring sealed bids, county officials have not yet approved a new bidding policy Gingery drafted. Last year, Gingery said some of the problems with the bidding controversy were a result of vague laws and policies.

Living with predators

A dream drove Stewart Soleman to start his pedicab business, Stew’s Cruise. While sleeping, the 24-year-old Jackson resident imagined a bike taxi shop on Town Square where everyone — customers and employees — was having a good time. The dream “was really fun,” Soleman said. And it was “something that I could actually do and work toward.” Starting June 2, Soleman began putting his dream to work. He cruises around downtown on his pedicab when he gets free moments between his other two jobs. He is a hot tub technician at Complete Spa Care and also sets up convention equipment for the Snow King Sports and Events Center. He transports tourists and the latenight crowd. His pedicab can carry three passengers. “I’ll take you wherever you want to go ... almost,” he said. “The farthest I’ll go is probably to Albertsons from the square. That’s kind of a long way, [it’s] the very outreach of where I’ll go.” Rather than charging a set fee, Soleman asks for a donation. There’s no good meter system for pedaling, he said. “I don’t really know a good way to charge people a rate,” Soleman said, “By donation, I can probably get more money from people who have a better time for short distances or for long.” Last summer, Soleman pedaled for Green Gears Transportation, a now-defunct pedicab operation with a similar business model. That job also geared him up for Stew’s Cruise, he said. Adding to his open-air bike trailer is a soundtrack. Soleman will play whatever customers want, as long as it’s on his iPod. The pedicab has a stereo in the back.

How high do you hang your bird feeder? At what distance from a charging bear should you use your pepper spray? These and many more questions are answered in a spread that covers the do’s and don’ts of hiking and living among megafauna. See page Valley, page 12B.

Runner’s delight


Stewart Soleman of Stew’s Cruise can be found tooling around downtown Jackson several nights throughout the week offering people a ride home or to another watering hole in his pedicab. He will take passengers as far as Albertsons.

“If they have a preference, I’ll try to play it,” he said. Soleman said being eco-friendly is a big part of his business. “There’s a lot of cars already that congest this area,” he said. “It’s just easier to bike around. It’s better for the environment just because I’m not using fossil fuels for transportation. It’s reducing impact on the town.” Soleman, an Alabama native, moved to Jackson from Colorado last summer for skiing and the mountains. His mountain biking hobby has been good training for towing people in the pedicab, he said. In April, Jackson town councilors passed a resolution granting Soleman a pedicab franchise that allows him to operate the business until Oct. 15. The town currently does not have another pedicab business in operation. “A bicycle-friendly cab option may be attractive for our community in

that many of the residents and visitors are healthy and live in this community for outdoor recreational activities,” a town document reads. For now, Soleman’s business will be a one-man show, but he hopes to expand in the future to have more bikes and drivers, he said. “I already have a lot of people that want to bike for me,” Soleman said. Besides the extra money his pedicab operation brings in, he enjoys providing people an alternate mode of transportation. Soleman takes pleasure in “seeing customers in the back super-excited about riding in the bike taxi,” he said, “having a smile in their face when they get off. The satisfaction that I get is from their satisfaction.” Stew’s Cruise has no set hours, but Soleman can be generally found downtown evenings and weekends. You can also call him at 413-9883.

Don’t set bad precedent

n the past, town and county leaders used an inclusive process to determine which organizations could go before voters and ask for specific purpose excise tax revenue. By letting groups come forward to explain their capital needs and request a spot on the ballot, town and county leaders acknowledged the tax was a community resource. Such open processes have helped spread revenue for the penny sales tax around the valley — funding schools, sidewalks, a recreation center, pathways, hospital construction and a host of other projects. This summer, town of Jackson and Teton County leaders don’t want to share. They are considering only their own projects as they draft a ballot for the November election. For months, town councilors and county commissioners have weighed using the tax to clean up an old dump and fund the town’s purchase of U.S. Forest Service land in Jackson. In recent weeks, leaders have discussed asking voters to approve more specific purpose excise tax funds to connect town and the west bank via pathways. Town and county leaders are setting a bad precedent by failing to take stock of other needs that may have sprouted in the community since tax questions last went before voters in 2010. While councilors and commissioners must serve as gatekeepers and determine what projects get on the ballot, they should not pretend their projects are the only ones worth considering. In 2010, voters allocated $34 million to 10 projects, which should be paid for by November 2014. The three projects leaders are considering could lock up the tax until at least 2016. County officials contend the move is warranted because they have to meet a 2017 Department of Environmental Quality deadline to close the old dump. The town wants to buy land along North Cache owned by the Forest Service. The pathway between town and the west bank is long overdue, and the prospect of its completion would warm county voters to just about any tax action officials might take. But town and county leaders should rethink their current rush to write a ballot. Have they exhausted all funding options and deal structures that could make their projects happen? Can they wait another year and take time to hear other community options or needs while developing their own proposals? They should not appropriate the tax for just town and county needs. That would make the tax less of a community resource and more of a balm for easing never-ending town and county ills.

LETTERS I’ll be on the river Shame on Jim Roscoe. In my view his constituents (spoiler alert: I am not in his district) deserve more than a “Dude, the river was a-callin’” excuse for not knowing his own street address. I can understand, and even sympathize with, Roscoe’s concern for balancing his professional and personal life with his public service. However, on that fateful evening when he curled up in his easy chair on West Paintbrush Trail (that’s West Paintbrush Trail, Jim,) and made the decision to fill out his election filing papers incorrectly, I believe he also made a commitment to the people who had elected him previously to try to represent them with focus and care. By failing in this trust, he at least, I think, owes voters a very public apology, something I did not see anywhere on the front page of last week’s paper. I guess Roscoe feels it is no big deal to essentially hand over his seat to someone who seems to believe the role of a state representative is not to listen to local constituents or to serve their local interests at the state level but rather to fight the efforts of Barack Hussein SaddamObamBinLaden and his Communo-Islamist plot to make sure folks have health care and some other good stuff and while he’s at it to steal the frontier (frontier? Final Frontier? Is this a Star Trek episode or something?)

If you disagree with my viewpoint, let me know. ... I’ll be on the river. You could try me on the walkietalkies. I usually carry one and leave the other next to my front door on Wherever It Is I Live Avenue. Or maybe you can call Democratic leaders and they will consider, but in the end reject, the idea of relaying your message to me via helicopter or burro. In the meantime, I encourage voters in Roscoe’s district to find a rational candidate (with some proven paperwork experience) and start a write-in campaign. Disheartened, Matt Daly Jackson

Bad bear jam On Saturday evening, I was in a bear jam in Grand Teton National Park. Virtually all of the people in attendance I spoke to afterward agreed that it was the worst-managed bear jam ever. Several of these people have experienced literally hundreds of jams. It all started with Grizzly 610 and her three cubs grazing peacefully near the road at Jackson Lake Junction, something they have done frequently. Park employees hazed the bears with sirens, horns and noise from their public address systems, mistreated the visitors and generally amped up the chaos and stress of the situation. I have experienced many wildlife jams, and controlled chaos is an apt description of even the bestrun bear jams. This bear jam totally got out of control, and it was quite simply because the park employees involved lost their cool. Even first-time visitors who have not experienced bear jams were offended by the way the jam was managed and by the way they were treated by park employees and volunteers. Many said that park employees were rude and that they felt harassed by them. Many expressed contempt for the park personnel using profanity. I have never before seen such a negative response to park personnel doing their jobs. No doubt, bears are dangerous and unpredictable. Anything that amplifies the stress on bears only increases their danger and unpredictability. To haze bears in close proximity to hundreds of people is plain ignorant and unjustifiable except in rare circumstances. Those rare circumstances were not in evidence during this jam. The viewing regulations put in place last summer are, in my opinion,

a primary reason this bear jam went haywire. Before the new rules, bear jams were more static, because you could stay within your hard-sided vehicle when the bears moved between vehicles while crossing roads. Now park personnel are enforcing a 100-yard rule that is well-intentioned in that the idea is to give the bears space to cross roads. In reality, it puts many more vehicles in motion in close proximity to the bears and to the people watching them. In short, the wellintentioned rules are counterproductive. They create a rolling bear jam that is more confusing to the bears, less safe for all involved, including the bears, and amps up the stress for all involved, again, including the bears. These rules have placed significant added demands on the personnel managing bear jams. Some people are able to deal with those demands, and some are not. I particularly commend Ranger Chris Flaherty and Justin Schwabedissen of the Wildlife Brigade. They are the gold standard of bear-jam management: They are unfailingly courteous and utterly professional, and they don’t lose their cool. They make bearjam management look easy, and I feel safer when they are around. Other park personnel assigned to bear jams are square pegs in round holes. They have neither the situational awareness nor the temperament for the job. These particular individuals are dangerous to the bears and the people viewing them. The park needs to either train these people better or remove them to jobs more suitable for them. Any regular bear watcher knows who these people are, and so must the park. I ask: If the new rules create utter chaos and generate utter contempt for the park personnel involved while also diminishing safety for all involved (including the bears) what good are these rules?

Give Wildlife a Brake ™ The Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation is writing in response to last week’s letter from Elizabeth Laden of the Island Park News. Ms. Laden objected to the fact that the foundation has a trademark for the phrase “Give Wildlife a Brake.” For almost 20 years, reducing wildlife-vehicle collisions in Teton County has been a core tenet of our organization. This trademark was issued on July 8, 1997. At that time, the foundation had been using the phrase for several years in its various publications, including educational newspaper and radio ads, in an effort to help reduce deadly vehicle-wildlife collisions. The foundation wanted to ensure that it would continue to have the right to use this phrase and not be superseded by another organization that might prevent us from using it. Therefore, we sought and were granted the trademark. In the intervening years, others have created this or similar phrases to raise awareness of wildlife on the roads. We have courteously exercised our right to license other organizations to use the phrase under a simple licensing agreement. The licensing fee we negotiated with the Henry’s Fork Chapter of Idaho Master Naturalists was a very modest $10. Our goal with our signature trademarked phrase is to reduce vehicles hitting and killing wildlife.

Show spoofs Simplot, its two-headed trout

Evan Molyneaux • Geoff Whitaker

Comedy Central takes on hallmark issue of Idaho conservationist. By Mike Koshmrl The J.R. Simplot Company’s infamous two-headed trout has again drawn national media, this time on Jon Stewart’s news-comedy program “The Daily Show.” “The Daily Show” producers and correspondent Aasif Mandvi were creative with the six-minute spot, “A Simple Plot,” which aired Thursday. Mandvi framed the Environmental Protection Agency’s initial endorsement of the Simplot report that produced the twoheaded trout fry as part of a conspiracy. “Literally, every single place I went in Idaho, there was Simplot,” Mandvi said in the skit. “The governor of Idaho worked at Simplot for almost 30 years and married J.R. Simplot’s daughter. Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson chairs the subcommittee that sets the EPA’s budget.” “What the #@$%?” Mandvi asked. In February, Simplot’s push for higher regulatory limits on selenium made headlines after images of two-headed trout surfaced in the agribusiness giant’s own report. Selenium is a naturally occurring mineral essential to human health in low concentrations, but toxic and mutagenic at high levels. Near Simplot’s Smoky Canyon phosphate mine, a still-active Superfund site in southeast Idaho, dangerous selenium levels were detected in Wyoming Creek, which drains into the Salt and Snake rivers. Concentrations were high enough that facial, fin and head deformities were found in the fry of captured fish, Marv Hoyt, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s Idaho director, said. The shock-and-awe value of the story attracted coverage from media outlets

as large as The New York Times. Hoyt said the “Daily Show” spot almost didn’t happen. “They tried to line up interviews with the EPA, Simplot and other agencies, and none of them would cooperate,” Hoyt said. “Simplot was telling people that ‘The Daily Show’ never contacted them for an interview. They were saying it up to [Thursday] night, when Aasif showed up in their office on TV.” Then a producer proposed focusing the piece on Simplot’s influence in Idaho and Washington, D.C., Hoyt said. Hoyt spent a couple of days with the show and is featured throughout the skit. He said he was impressed by its journalistic diligence. “They did a ton of research and factchecked everything,” Hoyt said. “I was sort of surprised. ... You’d expect [Aasif Mandvi] to be a funny guy joking around, and that’s not the case when you’re not filming. ... He was very quiet and very serious.” Hoyt spent three hours filming an interview that was condensed to about two minutes. Producers instructed him to not laugh or smile. “We had to do a number of retakes, because I just burst out laughing,” he said. The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality is currently weighing whether to approve Simplot’s request for higher limits on selenium in two creeks below Smoky Canyon. A change in the standard would save Simplot tens of millions in cleanup costs and could have a bearing on the EPA’s national standard, Hoyt said. The Greater Yellowstone Coalition has worked to reform Simplot’s mining methods since 1995. The recent run of publicity can’t hurt, Hoyt said. “Hopefully this will bring a lot of attention to this issue,” he said. The “Daily Show” skit can be viewed online at thu-june-14-2012/a-simple-plot.

Last week, staff from Wyoming Protection and Advocacy System sent a letter to state health officials warning that budget cuts could have serious effects on developmental disability services. Chief Executive Officer Jeanne Thobro said her agency has seen an uptick in the number of incident reports and complaints involving understaffing and medication errors in some programs that serve some Wyoming residents with developmental disabilities. She mentions reports of people being left unattended, inadequate supervision and injuries resulting from single staff members trying to perform duties typically handled by several people. Thobro also mentions incidents in which people received incorrect medication or none at all.

“Some of these events involve inadequate staffing and high turnover rates.” – Jeanne Thobro Wyoming protection and advocacy system chief executive officer

Protection and Advocacy “is concerned with these patterns,” Thobro said in June 11 letter to state officials. “Some of these events involve inadequate staffing and high turnover rates. Inadequate funding can be a significant factor in such situations.” The impetus behind the letter was to get out in front of any potential cuts to the state’s developmental disability services, Thobro said. State officials have a good track record of support for the program but could easily veer away from that, she said. “We’re trying to take a proactive approach rather than getting into the next session and having to take a reactive posture,” she said. Last session, while debating developmental disability funding, several lawmakers suggested the state should reduce funding. Legislators said they support the program, but in tight times officials should consider scaling back services to free money to meet more residents’ demands. The main concern for providers in Teton County is making sure they are able to retain staff, Thobro said. The high cost of living sometimes can drive away some staff members, she said. Newman said she had not heard or seen reports that matched what Thobro described. She said that she planned to meet with Thobro and discuss the letter and the concerns raised in it.

Roscoe seeks again to promote natural gas By Kevin Huelsmann Rep. Jim Roscoe, D-Wilson, is working on a bill to increase funding for natural gas stations and for vehicles to be converted to run on the fuel. Roscoe, who does not plan to seek re-election, pitched the idea last week to members of the state Minerals, Business and Economic Development Committee. Though he has not yet drafted a bill, Roscoe is working to build support for the legislation before he leaves office. “Wyoming suffers from natural gas prices because we don’t get as much money,” he said. “But we have an opportunity to save money.” Roscoe is promoting natural gas in Wyoming because it is a cleaner-burning fuel than gasoline and could reduce the country’s reliance on oil from foreign countries, he said. It also could create some new jobs, he said. In the most recent legislative session, state representatives set aside $1 million for a compressed natural gas fueling station or the conversion of vehicles to run on natural gas. The state transportation department or the University of Wyoming are supposed to benefit. Roscoe hopes to expand that effort and resurrect a bill that died in the last session. To do so, the lawmaker will have to get someone to shepherd the bill through the Legislature next year. Roscoe already is talking to lawmakers who are interested in sponsoring the potential bill, he said. He said he’ll spend the next several months trying to meet with opponents of previous efforts to promote natural gas stations and conversion of vehicles.

Grants would fund program The Wilson Democrat announced earlier this month that he doesn’t plan to seek a third term in the state House. Republican Marti Halverson is the only candidate who filed to run for House District 22. Roscoe, who serves until January, is a member of several committees and said he plans to continue to work with state officials even after he is out of office. His proposal will be largely based on a bill that was presented in the state House during the most recent legislative session. That bill, which failed on introduction, would have created a grant program to help pay for the construction of natural gas filling stations. The bill also would have set up a funding system to help school districts buy buses that run on natural gas.

Roscoe’s bill in the last legislative session would have allocated $250,000 to the Department of Education and another $500,000 to the Department of Administration and Information to pay for the programs. Lawmakers voted down the proposal to introduce the bill 40-18. Reps. Keith Gingery, R-Jackson, and Ruth Ann Petroff, R-Jackson, both voted in favor of Roscoe’s proposal. Petroff was a co-sponsor.

Gas widely available, cheap The grant programs would have covered half the total cost of building a natural gas station, up to $250,000. Funding for school buses would have been capped at $10,000 per bus. The legislation would have targeted the money to counties that didn’t have natural gas filling stations, had ozone levels that violated environmental standards and contained a school district that was willing to convert some of its fleet to run on natural gas. Some of the oppoRoscoe sition to the bill came from legislators and lobbyists who didn’t think the state government should help subsidize natural gas stations and vehicle conversions, Roscoe said. A bill to increase the number of natural gas stations would benefit a widerange of users, Wyoming Petroleum Association President Bruce Hinchey said. “If you’re looking at [compressed natural gas] prices, it’s at least $2 per gallon less than the current gasoline prices,” he said. “It’s cheaper.” As more manufacturers build vehicles that can run on natural gas, the cost to use the fuel will decrease, Hinchey said. However, Roscoe also said state officials have to address the increasing numbers of worries about the safety and consequences of the methods used to extract natural gas — namely hydraulic fracturing. State employees are undertaking numerous efforts that would help monitor extraction and development efforts, Roscoe said. State officials are working on rules that would require companies to collect baseline data before they extract oil or gas from a site, he said. State rules also require companies to disclose the chemical they use in the fracking process, Roscoe said. Efforts are under way to restrict venting unwanted gases and collect more taxes from companies that continue to vent. “It’s a good time to look at these things,” Roscoe said. “The price is so low that things aren’t nearly as wild as when things are booming.”

Competition stiff for hospital renovations By Benjamin Graham Local contractors will face stiff regional and national competition for work on St. John’s Medical Center’s expansion and renovation project. J.E. Dunn, construction manager of the project, opened subcontractor bids at a public meeting June 19. Contractors bid on various phases of the project, such as drywall installation, electrical wiring and flooring. The submission period for bids ended June 18 at 5 p.m. J.E. Dunn will sort the bids over the next two weeks so that price estimates can be compared accurately. Preliminary numbers show Hobson Fabricating, a company based in Idaho Falls, came in with the lowest bid for mechanical work, the largest portion of the overall project. Mechanical work includes installing air conditioning, piping, heating and ventilation. The closest bid made by a local company, Mecho Inc., came in roughly $200,000 more than the $5.1 million bid made by Hobson. While the cost estimates will likely change throughout the vetting process, the hospital’s board will eventually have to weigh cost, quality and support of local labor to make decisions on each subcontractor. Greiner Electric, out of Littleton, Colo., submitted the lowest preliminary bid for electrical wiring at $1.4 million. The next closest bid, made by Rydalch Electric out of Salt Lake City, came in at $1.7 million. Delcon Inc., a Jacksonbased company, bid $380,000 more than the lowest bidder. Contractors from as far as Tennessee bid on parts of the expansion and renovation project. State law requires St. John’s to choose an instate contractor if its bid is within 5 percent of the lowest bid, hospital Chief Operating Officer Gary Trauner said. Preliminary numbers don’t mean

Bridger-Teton National Forest officials have kicked the can on releasing a document that will decide the extent of Plains Exploration & Production ComGRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK pany’s proposed natural gas development near Bondurant. Made U.S. of 100%Forest recycled materials The Service has mainBPA-Free tained thatRecyclable the plan, a supplemental environmental impact statement, would be out by the end of June. “We’re still on track for that,” Bridger-Teton National Forest spokeswoman Mary Cernicek said in early June. But on Tuesday, Cernicek said the plan has been delayed two months and is now due out in August. By press time, Cernicek had not explained the delay. Citizens for the Wyoming Range, Wyoming Outdoor Council and the Wilderness Society, along with Houston-based oil and gas company PXP, a $4 billion company, have awaited the drilling

plan’s release since Brider-Teton Supervisor Jacque Buchanan deemed the original EIS inadequate in January. “We’ve advocated all along that there were serious deficiencies in the last draft,” Wyoming Outdoor Council’s Lisa McGee said. “If the agency has determined it needs more time to fix those deficiencies, then the public is willing to wait.” The supplemental plan is expected to reflect a 1947 forest plan stipulation that prohibits drilling near roads. A mule deer study also could significantly curtail permitted development. It’s unknown to what degree the supplemental plan’s two alternative options will alter the original plan of 136 gas wells and 17 well pads. A 45-day period for public comment with meetings planned in Jackson and Pinedale were previously penciled in for August. The meetings now will likely not be held until October at the earliest.

Store owner found dead By Emma Breysse A man found dead in his Jackson home last week died of natural causes, the Teton County Coroner confirmed. Kevin Gilday, 55, died of a blockage in an artery in his lung, known as a pulmonary embolism, Coroner Kiley Campbell said Tuesday. Gilday owned Mill Valley Sheepskin & Leather in Jackson. When he didn’t show up for work Thursday, a co-worker grew worried and decided to check on him at his Aspen Drive home, police records show. Gilday’s truck was in the driveway and his dog was inside the house and

agitated, according to police reports. When knocking at the door didn’t get a response, the co-worker got into the house through an open patio window, police said. The colleague found Gilday’s naked on his bathroom floor, according to police. There were no signs of either suicide or foul play, police said. When Campbell and EMTs arrived, they declared Gilday dead, according to the police report. Officers found Gilday’s phone on the kitchen counter, showing several missed calls beginning at 6 a.m. that day. The last outgoing call was recorded at 9:47 the previous evening, police said.

The Jackson Hole Land Trust has partnered with the LOR Foundation, proposing to create a new “park” on 40 acres just north and west of the Wilson bridge that are presently zoned and platted for just two residences. The basic mission of the land trust has been the permanent preservation of wildlife habitat and open space. Since it was founded by Jean Hocker, the land trust has preserved over 22,000 acres, a remarkable achievement, given our high land values. But it has obviously become difficult for the organization’s staff of 10 people. According to its annual report, it preserved only 82 acres in all of 2011. The LOR Foundation is new to the local scene, created by a Wilson resident. It “promotes eco-friendly transportation choices in mountain areas” as its basic mission. These two organizations have teamed up to promote and develop this new park, complete with a PR blitz and a big onsite event with free alcohol and the One Ton Pig band. The proposed “park” will have new access roads, leading to 40-50 new onsite parking spaces — much more than commercial operations like Stearnie’s, Nora’s and the Aspens Market and far more than one or two residences — and will create new direct roadway access to unregulated commercial activities at the launch area. Eco-friendly transportation? No, despite the PR. They would give up only one unit of residential density for all these high-

impact uses. They are already asking the county for an upzone, right after the new 2012 plan designated wildlife as the top priority for this Snake River riparian area. Conservation? No, despite the PR. The project will keep the land trust staff busy, I guess, and maybe bring in some big donations. But to really appreciate this “natural park” with all its new roads and parking, a moose will have to rent a kayak, then try to dodge the traffic. They might do better by focusing less on PR/lobbying, urban park planning concepts and high-impact events and more on pedestrian/bike uses for their “natural park,” with safe access to Stilson for their parking. Peter F. Moyer Jackson Hole

Balanced uses This is an incredibly dynamic and exciting time at the Jackson Hole Land Trust. With eight active protection projects on more than 1,375 acres currently in progress in Teton County, our work in the valley continues to shape its very character. As board president of the land trust, I am thrilled to have added the River Springs project to our portfolio of work this year. While we have a 30-year track record of protecting large tracts of land for wildlife, scenic views and ranching heritage, we are also guided by our current strategic plan to protect properties of high community value, like River Springs. This project joins Emily’s Pond, the Hardeman Barns, the Flat Creek Corridor, Karns Meadow, and several small properties in Wilson that are Jackson Hole Land Trust-protected public-access properties. The vision for the park at River Springs is simple: 40 acres, formerly a gravel mining operation, transformed to a natural park, where community members can walk, run, hike, swim and enjoy the Tetons and Snake River. The park will consider wildlife, appropriate family-friendly activities and the protection of public access with a variety of users. With this park, we will also have a voter-backed pedestrian/bike pathway and pathway bridge connecting Jackson, Wilson and Teton Village, and an improved boat launch area, developed concurrently yet independently from the park land by our partners in the community. This vision is a shared one. We are indebted to the many community members who have attended open houses and stakeholder meetings, participated in an online survey and contacted us through the project’s website. This input allows us to balance uses, respect associated planning regulations and provide the community with what it wants. We are grateful to the community of Jackson for voicing your support of this project and making it your own. Pete Lawton Board president Jackson Hole Land Trust

I am very excited about the new Rendezvous Lands Conservancy Park being planned at the Wilson bridge. I’m sure my family will enjoy the park and increased access to the Snake River. I worked hard to help get 400 miles of the Snake River designated forever protected under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. I am happy to see an old industrial site and a section of the Snake that has been heavily degraded by necessity of bridge construction, infrastructure crossing and narrow distance between the dikes put to use for the enjoyment of us humans while also improving wildlife habitat. That’s what I call wise use. The park, the pedestrian bridge, our glorious river….the Wilson Beach is about to get a whole lot better. Corey Milligan Wilson

common man. Teton County is hardly a swing county in a swing state, but it can be a lucrative fundraising stop for candidates. County residents have donated at least $3.5 million to candidates in 2011-12, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Among those is a $2.3 million donation from Friess Associates, whose founder Foster Friess heavily backed Rick Santorum. Law will be a Romney supporter again. “I haven’t decided at what level, but I absolutely will,” she said when asked whether she would participate in the events. For valley resident Laurent Roux, a Romney visit to the Equality State is an opportunity for residents here to “get a look” at the candidate. Roux attended a Romney event hosted by Republican fundraiser Dick Scarlett last year, he said, and met the candidate. “I think it’s great,” the banker and founder of Gallatin Wealth Management LLC said of Romney’s planned return. “I’m glad he’s coming back.” Mike Halloran, a corporate attorney, SEC official from 2006-08 and valley resident, also looks forward to Romney’s visit, he said. “I hope to shake his hand,” Halloran said, suggesting he would attend at least one event. But as for whether he would make it to an expensive dinner, “I’ll have to talk to my wife about that,” he said. Whether Romney will mix with the masses or remain ensconced with the affluent is also uncertain. Fundraising organizer Bill Scarlett, son of Dick Scarlett, did not return a call for information Tuesday afternoon and evening. Last year, Romney attended a $2,500-a-plate breakfast in Star Valley before addressing a crowd of 400 in Afton. He played up his regional ties. A member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he found support in the community south of Jackson Hole where Mormonism is influential. From Afton, he came to Jackson for the fundraiser at Dick and Maggie Scarlett’s, but made no public appearances. In his visit in 2007 in front of about 75 people at the

Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is introduced by former Wyoming state representative Clarine Law during an August 2007 campaign stop at the Antler Motel in downtown Jackson.

Antler, he called for cleaning up polluted water and outlined his positions on foreign and domestic policy, immigration and energy. “There should be no special pathway, no special deal” for illegal immigrants to become citizens, he said then. Romney remained in town for a fundraiser at Robin and Cherrie Siegfried’s Lazy Moose Ranch in Wilson. Tickets to that event cost $1,000 for the reception.

Surveyed organizations included the Center for the Arts, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, Off Square Theatre Company and the Grand Teton Music Festival. The arts and culture organizations surveyed contributed $17.9 million in expenditures, an overall tally of their contributions as employers, producers and consumers. Meanwhile, their event-related audiences spent an additional $31.3 million at valley restaurants, hotels, retail stores and other businesses. Ticket sales were not factored into audiences’ event-related spending. Data was gathered through short surveys distributed to people attending events hosted by participating organizations. In Teton County, 1,349 valid surveys were filled out during 2011. Researchers estimate that 55.7 percent of the 585,786 nonprofit arts attendees were valley residents and 44.3 percent nonresidents. As a result of going to an event, nonresident attendees spent almost five times more per person than local attendees ($93.49 versus $21.20), a difference attributed to higher spending on lodging, meals and transportation. Arts and culture attractions drew people to Teton County, the study reports. Nearly half of visitors’ surveys — 45.7 percent — said the primary reason for their trip was “specifically to attend this arts/cultural event.” Outdoor attractions are not the only sector drawing people to visit and live in

These 15 organizations participated in the Americans for the Arts study:


A national survey released by Americans for the Arts found that arts and culture audiences in Teton County, like the Grand Teton Music Festival patrons pictured here, spent $31.3 million in 2010, which pumped revenue into local restaurants, hotels, retail stores and other businesses.

Jackson, Mike Swanson said. “The arts are an economic footprint on the valley,” he said. For comparison, total retail sales in Teton County were $334 million for the year ending in May, according to the most recent data analysis done by Jackson economist Jonathan Schechter.

People travel to cultural events The survey also considered the economic impact of offering fewer arts opportunities by asking, “If this event were not happening, would you have traveled to another community to attend a similar cultural experience?” In response, 21.5 percent of residents said they would have traveled to a dif-

ferent community to attend a similar event, while 27.9 percent of visitors said the same. “These figures demonstrate the economic impact of the nonprofit arts and culture in the purest sense,” the study says. “If a community does not provide a variety of artistic and cultural experiences, it will fail to attract the new dollars of cultural tourists. It will also lose the discretionary spending of its local residents who will travel elsewhere to experience the arts.”

Sector had bigger punch in ’05 Despite the study’s banner findings for 2010, Teton County lost steam from an earlier iteration of the Americans for the Arts study, conducted in 2005 and released in 2007. Then, Teton County reported $65.6 million in total arts and culture expenditures when the national median was $48.4 million, or 25 percent more direct expenditures in comparison with 2010. In 2005, arts and culture organizations contributed $18.2 million in economic activity — nearly on par with 2010 — while arts and culture audiences accounted for $47.4 million — nearly 34 percent more than audiences’ expenditures in 2010.

The communities ranged in population from 1,600 to more than 3 million residents and spanned the spectrum from rural to urban. The study considered nonprofit arts and culture organizations and excluded for-profit businesses as well as individual artists. Overall, the study found the arts and culture sector weathered the recession well. Nationally, the industry generated $135.2 billion of economic activity, which supports 4.1 million full-time jobs. “ Arts & Economic Prosperity IV demonstrates that America’s nonprofit arts industry is not only resilient in times of economic uncertainty but is also a key component to the nation’s economic recovery and future prosperity,” Robert L. Lynch, president and chief executive officer of Americans for the Arts wrote as introduction to the survey. “Business and elected leaders need not feel that a choice must be made between arts funding and economic prosperity. This study proves that they can choose both.” For a description of the national study’s methodology, go online to The Center for the Arts website, at www., features a link to the full survey.

economic boundary of the town. “The annexation has a logical boundary in Spring Creek,” Halpin said. Spring Creek flows along the western border of the three lots. The land to the east is part of Jackson. County land lies to the north, south and west. In the past, Halpin has donated land to the town and has developed residential lots as a business. He plans to build a house for his family on the two empty lots. He said the structure would be “nothing ominous.” Current zoning of the property stems from a planned-unit-development classification established in 1992. County zoning lists the property as single-family residential lots. The same development approval classifies all the lots in Indian Springs Ranch. Land annexed to towns is supposed to be zoned under the most restrictive town classification. Any upzoning would be a separate process. If the land is annexed, the lots would retain their original zoning, Halpin said. “Nothing changes other than the jurisdiction,” he said. Today’s zoning of the proposed lots prohibits subdivision. If the land were annexed and Halpin or some future owner of the lots wanted to alter the zoning for denser development, he or she would have to submit an application with town planning staff. Town planning staffers don’t believe a residential zoning change would happen under the new landuse plan. “The new comp plan does not guide that property in that direction,” Town Planner Tyler Sinclair











SAVIT Associates LLC Trustees J. Douglas and Larissa Ann McCalla of the McCalla Living Trust

The two most likely options for residential rezoning would be autourban residential or suburban residential. Auto-urban residential zoning allows a lot to be subdivided into 7,500-square-foot lots. Suburban residential zoning permits 12,000square-foot lots. If Halpin’s property were subdivided and half the area reserved for roads, 55 lots could result. “If they were to propose something like an urban commercial zoning there, the planning staff would likely recommend denial,” said Shawn Hill, senior planner for the town of Jackson. None of the land surrounding the three lots is zoned as commercial. In most cases of annexation, property starts out with a rural zoning classification. Halpin and the owner of the neighboring third lot submitted the annexation request to the Jackson town clerk in May. The McCalla Living Trust owns the other 15-acre lot. The trust lists Douglas and Larissa McCalla as trustees. Douglas McCalla did not return calls for comment. “I was the one who approached Doug,” Halpin said. The McCallas live in the house on the lot part of the year, Halpin said. Both landowners are seeking annexation at the same time out of convenience. The McCalla lot was assessed to be worth $797,813 in 2011. The two Halpin lots combined for a value of $1.3 million. SAVIT Associates LLC and the Meridian Group, both Teton County companies, own one of Halpin’s lots. The other lot is owned solely by SAVIT Associates, according to county clerk records. Meridian Group lists Halpin as its only party. SAVIT Associates lists Halpin as the administrative member.

Tucker Allison, 11, of Gillette, helps his aunt Tanya Allison and other family members hunt successfully in Grand Teton National Park last fall. Sierra Club is calling for an environmental assessment of the park’s annual elk reduction hunt.

Sierra Club calls for elk hunt review Park officials say annual reduction is still necessary to maintain healthy herd balance. By Mike Koshmrl


ierra Club has asked Grand Teton National Park to do an environmental review of its annual elk hunt, citing “changing conditions” since the park last completed a study in 2007. The request, submitted May 7 in a letter to the park, adds heft to mounting public pressure from critics of the annual culling. The critics, most notably photographers Tom Mangelsen and Tim Mayo, have hammered the park for years, saying the hunt habituates threatened grizzly bears to eating gut piles and puts visitors at risk. “It would be fair to say that the group of photographers got us tuned into this,” Steve Thomas, Sierra Club’s western regional director, said. Thomas said Sierra Club’s office in Washington, D.C., also signed off on the letter that asks for an environmental assessment, a formal review that would be conducted under federal environmental laws. In a written response to the 1.4 million-member organization, Grand Teton Superintendent Mary Gibson Scott said that “each of your concerns itemized in your letter are being or have been addressed.” She then shut the door, writing on June 7 that “no additional analyses are necessary at this time.” Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs amplified on the superintendent’s letter. “It is kind of confusing that they’re asking for an [environmental assessment],” she said. “These issues were already analyzed.” Grand Teton’s 61-year-old annual elk hunt, called the “elk reduction program,” enables federal, state and park wildlife managers to authorize the shooting of elk in Grand Teton in pursuit of a park population goal of 1,600. To update a management plan for bison and elk in Jackson Hole, the park, the National Elk Refuge and Wyoming Game and Fish conducted an environ-

Those looking to draw a tag to hunt a bull elk in Grand Teton National Park will be out of luck, as the park will issue cow-only tags for 2012.

mental review of hunting, feeding and population objectives in 2007. That environmental impact statement — a deeper study than an environmental assessment — affirmed the need for the hunt. The 1950 congressional legislation that designated Grand Teton as a national park mandates the “controlled reduction” of elk in the park by “hunters licensed by the state of Wyoming.” Because of this language, the decision to discontinue the reduction program is larger than the park, Skaggs said. “The governor, Wyoming Game and Fish and U.S. Department of the Interior would have to approve eliminating [the hunt],” she said. In recent years, Grand Teton has cut the number of permits issued. From 1990 to 2005, an average of 2,500 permits were doled out, a por-

tion of which were “either-sex” tags that allowed the shooting of bulls. More than 1,000 elk were taken annually at the reduction program’s peak in the 1990s. Harvests of more than 700 were regular. In the 2011 hunt, the numbers dwindled to 750 permits authorized and 278 elk taken. This fall, for the first time ever, the park has entirely eliminated bull tags and is proposing to slash the number of permits by 25 to 725, Skaggs said. The final tally is determined after a late-summer elk census. “We’ve been working toward a more limited reduction,” Skaggs said. At this juncture, no known conservation organization, including Sierra Club, is actively calling for the park to suspend the hunt. “I can understand the reason for culling the herd,” Jackson resident and Sierra Club volunteer John Spahr said. “Our viewpoint at the Sierra Club right now is that things have changed since 2005, and we just want the park to look at it again. Not many national parks have hunting in them.” A list of “changing conditions” in the letter Spahr helped organize includes increases in wolf and grizzly populations and falling cow-calf ratios in the Jackson Hole Elk Herd. The effects of discarded lead bullets on predators and scavengers is also mentioned as a worry. In her written response, Scott systematically addressed each issue. “To date, all available data support that the elk reduction program, as well as harvest in hunt areas adjacent to the park, continues to be necessary for regulating the Jackson herd at its current state objective and feeding rates on the [National Elk Refuge],” Scott wrote. Because of northwest Wyoming’s feedground approach to elk management, which inflates numbers beyond the landscape’s carrying capacity, conservation organizations with a heavy presence in Jackson Hole remain understanding of the park’s reduction program. Almost all of the elk that summer in the park winter on the National Elk Refuge. The reduction program “is con-

nected directly to the artificial feeding and stockpiling of too many elk on the elk refuge,” Lloyd Dorsey, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition’s Wyoming representative, said. “It makes the harvest in Grand Teton National Park a necessity.” The Jackson Hole Conservation Alliance has a similar stance and is commending recent reforms to the park’s reduction program. “It’s encouraging that Grand Teton National Park’s leadership is taking steps to make next fall’s hunt a true elk reduction program by targeting the reproductive segment of the herd — adult female elk,” said Cory Hatch, the alliance’s wildlands director. Meanwhile, Mangelsen, who said the Sierra Club letter was “part of our efforts to get the park to stop the hunt,” is sticking to his position. “I’ve been fighting this for at least 25 years,” Mangelsen said. “It’s pretty well spelled-out that it’s incredibly dangerous to people. “It’s not 1952,” he said, referring to the year when the program was authorized. Since then, things have changed to the point campers in the park are ticketed for leaving out food. “They’re so mixed up,” Mangelsen said of park service rules. You can’t leave a Coke can on your picnic table, but you can leave a gut pile that’s covered with human scent and laced with lead.” An uptick in grizzly-hunter conflicts, including the mauling of Jackson resident Timothy Hix during last year’s hunt, has Spahr worried. In the aftermath of the attack, which left Hix with two bite wounds, some wondered if the attacking bear was one of the park’s most iconic grizzlies — bears 399 and 610. Skaggs said a DNA analysis confirmed it was neither. “The bear mauling last year had nothing to do with park regulations and everything to do with a surprise encounter between a human and a bear on a carcass,” Skaggs said. “This could just have easily been a hiker, fisherman or jogger as a hunter.” Park records show that two of the six maulings in Grand Teton’s history involved hunters in the elk reduction program.

School trustees voted Wednesday to cut part-time school district employees’ health care benefits, reversing a vote last month. The Teton County School District No. 1 board voted 4-2 to cut in half health savings account contributions to employees who work fewer than 32 hours a week. Trustees Carlen Carney, Robbi Farrow, Kate Mead and Janine Teske voted in favor. Paul D’Amours and Cherie Hawley were against the motion, and Greg Dennis was absent. “I do not want it to be perceived in any way, shape or form that we value our food service and transportation folks less than other people,” Teske said. “I am not trying to shortchange anybody.” The funds paid into health savings accounts are taxpayer dollars, she said. Other districts in the state pro-rate employees’ base insurance based on time worked, Teske said. Teton County is changing only HSA contributions, not health care coverage, she said. Part-time employees with dependents will now receive $1,250 annually in their accounts from the district instead of $2,500. The district has a high-deductible health insurance plan that it offsets for its employees by paying into their health saving accounts.

The district has about 60 part-time employees who work in food service, as bus drivers and as classroom aides. Trustees voted against the cut earlier this year. “I think this is the same motion we considered at our last warrants meeting,” D’Amours said. His opinion has not changed since then, he said. “Is this what’s best for A, the district or B, the kids?” he asked. “I don’t see how you can answer either of those in the affirmative.” Hawley advocated maintaining the current health care benefits. “I think it’s only right we support them and their families by not cutting the benefits they have now, especially in this tough economic times,” she said. Hawley was uncertain if the same motion could come back up again at a subsequent meeting. A defeated motion can come back to the voting body if the wording has changed, according to Robert’s Rules of Order, board Chairwoman Robbi Farrow said. The district pays more than $12,000 a year per employee for health care benefits, district Finance Director Matt Rodosky has said. That amount is less than what the state allocates in its funding model. By cutting parttime employees’ benefits, the district will save some $20,000, he said. Before the vote, two district employees came to speak against the decrease. “All of these benefits have made it much easier for me to put the kind of staff in our kitchens and our cafeterias that everybody wants,” said Joe DiPrisco, food service director.

Rangeview neighbors prefer portable potty Town looking for place to put two-stall restroom that serviced Home Ranch during construction. By Benjamin Graham Jackson officials listened to residents and decided to leave a portable bathroom in Rangeview Park rather than install a two-toilet restroom the town has on hand. The town purchased the $48,000 restroom to use temporarily while the Home Ranch visitor center was being rebuilt. Staff planned to move the restroom to Rangeview Park upon completion of the Home Ranch project. Cottonwood Park residents objected to the size and appearance of the spare restroom and urged officials to reconsider its installation in the subdivision’s park. Jackson Town Council decided to drop the project at a workshop Monday after hearing complaints from several residents. “The size of the new toilet would be overkill,” Lori Bowdler said at the meeting. The spare restroom has room for men’s and women’s stalls. The existing portable bathroom in the park has a single toilet. “Rangeview is not utilized as a destination park,” resident Kathy Tompkins said. “It’s more of a residential park. Our experience is the single restroom is plenty.” Maintaining a portable bathroom

helps the town financially. “This is also a way the town could save money,” Bowdler said. “The Porta-Potty costs $200 a month for four months a year to maintain.” The spare restroom would cost $24,000 to install with annual upkeep of $2,300. The spare restroom is one of two the town purchased during construction of the Home Ranch visitor center on North Cache. The other is slated to be moved to Melody Ranch. Carolyn Burke, who also lives in Cottonwood, said the best option for a new restroom in Rangeview Park would be “something as small as possible.” Mayor Mark Barron said the twotoilet restroom could be used at a location such as Alta Park. “We agreed with the property owners down there,” Barron said. The town initially decided to upgrade the Rangeview Park restroom after people complained about the quality of the portable bathroom. But once town staff began to install the two-stall bathroom in Rangeview Park, Cottonwood residents pushed back. The current portable toilet sits in the middle of a cluster of trees, a location residents said was suitable. “It seems like a reasonable request,” Councilor Mark Obringer said of the desires of Cottonwood residents. Councilors unanimously passed a motion directing staff to continue using the portable toilet in Rangeview Park and to find an alternative location for the restroom.

Former nurse fights charges of drug theft Prosecutors say she boosted prescription, took painkillers from elderly patient. By Emma Breysse A former hospice nurse pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges that she stole hydrocodone painkiller pills from a client in her care. Jan Dalebout, 58, faces two counts of felony possession of hydrocodone and one misdemeanor count of using fraud to obtain hydrocodone. Aside from entering her plea, she largely remained silent during her arraignment in 9th District Court as the judge and lawyers debated whether she should get a substance abuse evaluation. District Judge Timothy Day ordered Dalebout to get an evaluation and follow any recommendations. That would allow her to stay out of jail without paying increased bail. Dalebout currently is free on a signature bond and was not required to get an evaluation as an original release condition. She can get the evaluation in Arizona, where she now lives, as long as she provides the Wyoming court with the name and contact information of the evaluator she chooses, Day said. “It wouldn’t be unfair for me to conclude that you have a substance abuse problem that would need to be addressed to ensure the safety of the community,” Day said. “Right now that’s my main concern, second only

to making sure you get a prompt and fair trial.” Dalebout’s trial is scheduled for Oct. 15. Prosecutors filed charges against Dalebout in April following a Teton County Sheriff ’s Office investigation into accusations from her former employer. The employer told deputies that she was the legal guardian of an elderly woman Dalebout was hired to care for in Jackson. The guardian suspected Dalebout of stealing hydrocodone pills, according to court documents. The investigation showed that Dalebout got her client’s doctor to increase an occasional prescription for the hydrocodone. Most of those pills were not accounted for in logs of medication given to the client, court documents claim. Dalebout was fired in January because the employer suspected her of stealing the pills, according to court documents. Shortly after that, Dalebout allegedly picked up a 150-pill refill of the hydrocodone prescription from a Jackson pharmacy, pretending to still be the elderly woman’s caretaker, court files allege. Dalebout claimed the hydrocodone prescription was put in her bag by mistake while she was picking up medications for her father. Pharmacy records showed no prescriptions filled for him that day, court files allege. She said she didn’t know what happened to the missing pills from her time in her former job, but denied that she and her fellow caretakers were required to include hydrocodone doses in her client’s medication log.

Wilson company asks for chance to fight case Bank requests summary judgment to get $340,000, property. By Emma Breysse Letting Wells Fargo bank cut short a lawsuit would prevent all the facts from coming out and would deprive a Wilson company a chance at saving its property, defense attorneys for the west bank company argued last week. The bank filed the suit March 7, asking a judge to force Flat Creek Capital to pay $340,000 it allegedly owes on several loans and to allow the bank to take a piece of Wilson land securing another. In May, the bank sought to have the suit resolved in its favor through summary judgment. Friday, Flat Creek Capital responded, arguing that the bank is trying to “short circuit” the legal process. “There are disputed issues of material fact with respect to the amount of the defendant’s obligation, the interest rate and defendant’s affirmative defenses,” the filing reads. Wells Fargo’s earlier filing claimed that all of those amounts were accepted fact. Amy Wallace Potter, a Jackson attorney defending Flat Creek, said in Friday’s filing it is too soon to say that, since Flat Creek and its lawyers haven’t had the chance to examine Wells Fargo’s records. Potter’s filing also took issue with Wells Fargo’s contention that a judgment from an earlier federal case decided the amount Flat Creek owes. In that case, Flat Creek President Karen Ford and her husband, Glenn Ford, were the defendants, not Flat Creek. Wells Fargo convinced the judge

in the case to keep the company separate from its owners, Potter said. “The defendant was not a party to that action and its defenses ... have never been litigated,” the filing reads. “Summary judgment on the basis of an order in a different case involving different defendants is inappropriate.” Ford’s statement said she will be able to pay her company’s debts once she finishes a personal bankruptcy filing, and Wells Fargo hopes to use the district court suit to “circumvent and frustrate” her efforts. The suit is the latest in a long legal fight between Wells Fargo, Flat Creek Capital, the Fords and Fish Creek Capital, a company the Fords own together. The legal actions stem from a series of loans Wells Fargo made to the two companies, particularly a 2006 $1.4 million loan that allowed Fish Creek to buy land in the Snake River Sporting Club development and a founding membership in its golf club. The Wilson land, which houses a storage business, was mortgaged to back the loan. In one of two federal suits, the Fords argued that they remained current on the loans until the value of their land in the sporting club fell precipitously in 2009, following the financial collapse of the club’s developers. In that suit, the Fords’ companies alleged the bank, which also worked with club developers, knew the collapse was coming but failed to disclose the information. The Fords, and their companies, have alleged in multiple lawsuits that withholding that information from sporting club investors amounts to a breach of contract and a breach of good faith that makes the mortgage on Flat Creek’s land void.

Court Briefs


Zalak requests plea change


MEMBER: HUMAN SERVICE COUNCIL Working together to deliver cost effective human services



Co m m u n i ty Sa fety N etwo r k .o rg

A Jackson man who pleaded guilty to felony possession of marijuana last week asked a judge to let him change his plea. Stanley John Zalak, 35, faces the felony charge after police allegedly found marijuana in his house while he was on probation for another possession charge. At his arraignment June 12, Zalak entered the guilty plea he now seeks to withdraw. The plea originally was part of an agreement with prosecutors in which he would receive a two-year prison sentence. Ninth District Court Judge Timothy Day rejected the agreement because it didn’t include any substance abuse treatment requirements. Zalak enrolled in treatment as part of his earlier probation, but the program dropped him for not cooperating, according to court files. That sparked the home check that led to his most recent arrest. The pending case represents his third possession charge within 10 years, which makes it a felony charge.

Alleged stalker pleads not guilty An Alpine woman accused of stalking a Jackson surgeon entered a not guilty plea through her public defender this month. Aretha Denise Brown, 38, faces a misdemeanor stalking charge after she allegedly harassed Jackson doctor Alton “Buck” Parker for several months, eventually following him to Jackson from Detroit. Her trial is scheduled for July 10. According to court files, the two met face to face once, while Parker worked in Detroit. Since then, Brown allegedly has sent Parker more than 2,000 emails in an attempt to have a romantic relationship with him, some of them after police warned her to stop. She was arrested March 27, after she tried to make an appointment to see Parker at his office, then allegedly ignored police when they told her not to go. She is barred by court order from contacting Parker while her case is pending.

Colo. man denied remote hearing A Colorado man accused of supplying Jackson dealers with cocaine will have to attend his preliminary hearing, a judge ruled Monday. Matthew Thomas Desmarteau, 30, of Boulder, Colo., faces one charge each of conspiracy to commit a drug offense and delivery of cocaine. At a hearing Monday, 9th Circuit Court Judge James Radda denied Desmarteau’s request to “attend” his preliminary hearing via telephone. Wilson lawyer Mary Floyd argued for the remote appearance. Radda denied the request. Prosecutors will try to show there is enough reason to believe the alleged crime occurred. Teton County Deputy Prosecutor Clark Allen argued against the telephone appearance because it would prevent witnesses from identifying Desmarteau.

Week in Review Bank wins village foreclosure

While they claimed they are owed $31 million for the property, Wells Fargo bid $11.2 million Thursday during a foreclosure auction for 21 condominiums and land in Teton Village. A Wells Fargo representative submitted the sole bid for the second phase of the Hotel Terra Development. County records show a total of 28 residential units in the building. The bank claims project owners Sweetwater Lodge LLC owes $31 million on the property. The successful bid starts a redemption period during which Sweetwater Lodge and secondary lien holders can try to settle with the bank. The owners have three months to redeem the property; junior lien holders then have an additional 30 days. If no one intervenes during the redemption process, Wells Fargo will take over the 21 condominiums Sweetwater owns as well as the lot.

Schuster feted by lawyers

Jackson attorney Bob Schuster received a standing ovation from colleagues Thursday when the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association honored him with a lifetime achievement award. During every stage of his more than 40-year career, Schuster has worked tirelessly for his clients, Rob Shiveley, incoming association president, said as he presented the award. Shiveley presented the award during the association’s annual conference, held this year at Snow King Resort. Schuster, a Casper native and Yale University graduate, is among the state’s prominent trial lawyers, taking cases across the nation and winning several of the state’s and nation’s largest personal-injury awards. Those include the largest amount given in a Wyoming personal injury suit, which was $17.5 million. Schuster helped fight and defeat in the Legislature a measure known as tort reform, which would have

limited awards in personal injury cases. He was a partner at Spence, Moriarity & Schuster for nearly 25 years. Since 2002, he has run his own firm.

Man killed in park crash

A head-on collision in Grand Teton National Park killed John Richard Grace, 60, of Rochester Hills, Mich., Thursday. Grace was driving one of the two cars that collided near Oxbow Bend at around 12:30 p.m., Teton County Coroner Kiley Campbell said. The other driver and the single passenger in each car were uninjured. Rangers closed the 5-mile stretch of Highway 89/191 between Moran Junction and Jackson Lake Junction to investigate the crash, rerouting traffic to Teton Park Road and causing five- to 10-minute traffic delays.

Guard charged with lying

Officials have charged a park concessionaire security guard with filing a false report about an alleged June 7 assault near Jackson Lake Lodge. Christopher Dascoli, of Lee, Mass., claimed he was hit by a large blunt object while responding to a report of a loud, late-night party at employee housing near the lodge in Grand Teton National Park. Dascoli was found seriously injured when park rangers arrived on scene and transported to St. John’s Medical Center. On Friday, after an eight-day investigation, park rangers found Dascoli’s claims to be unfounded, park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs said, and he was called before the federal magistrate on charges of “interfering with an agency operation by providing false information to law enforcement and making a false report,” Skaggs said. Dascoli could be charged with a felony or a misdemeanor. “He did receive serious head injuries, but I don’t know how that happened,” Skaggs said. “I guess that will come out in the courts.”

Wand policy set back

School trustees tabled a proposed policy on the use of alcohol-sensing wands June 13 and voted down another proposal to incorporate wands into the district’s existing drug policy. Teton County School District No. 1 Board of Education first agreed to table the overarching wand policy when Trustee Janine Teske suggested the wands simply become a tool within the district’s existing drug and alcohol policy. But Trustee Paul D’Amours felt “more comfortable with a more detailed policy,” and Trustee Kate Mead said implementing a policy to permit wand use just as student drinking has been on the decline “is a bad idea.” In a 3-3 tie vote, the motion failed. The wands can be waved in front of a person to detect whether he or she has been drinking. Some parents proposed their use last summer, and the district has investigated them and drafted a use policy, which the American Civil Liberties Union criticized.

New speed limit set for Hwy. 390

State highway officials plan this week to lower the speed limit during nighttime hours on a portion of Highway 390 that has been the site of numerous moose-vehicle collisions. A Department of Transportation spokeswoman said it is the first time highway officials had imposed such a speed limit. Crews from WYDOT are supposed to install new signs this week informing drivers that the speed limit will drop to 35 miles per hour on the southernmost four miles of the road 30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise. The speed limit is currently set at 45 miles per hour. State highway officials are soliciting proposals for signs with flashing lights that would be installed along the highway in October. Those signs are supposed to alert drivers when the lower

speed limit is in effect. WYDOT is paying for the new signs.

New town clothier

The co-founder of the Cloudveil clothing company plans to unveil a new brand of apparel and accessories. Stephen Sullivan has created Stio (pronounced STEE-oh), which will offer men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, bags and accessories. The new Jacksonbased company already employs eight valley workers and is slated to launch 60 styles Sept. 1. Products will range from jeans and flannel shirts to underwear and outerwear. Prices will range from $40 to $600. Sullivan plans to sell through, catalogs and a 1,200-square-foot store retail store in part of the former location of Coldwater Creek starting in September. “What we’re trying to do is merge what I know about technical fabrics and construction into a more lifestyle application,” Sullivan, 47, said Monday, “products for more than just your extreme moments.”

2 cyclists injured Saturday

A mountain biker injured in the Cache Creek drainage underwent successful surgery for a broken neck Monday but faces a long recovery. Andy Parazette, the owner of Pica’s Mexican Taqueria, broke his neck in three places while riding Saturday. Parazette’s wife, Danielle, said doctors gave them “good news” after surgery Monday: He is expected to make a full recovery, albeit a long one. Jacob Pitts, a second mountain biker injured Saturday on a downhill mountain biking trail on Teton Pass, remained in serious condition at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center on Monday. Pitts was lying unconscious when he was found by a group of bikers, leading rescuers team to believe he sustained a head injury.

JACKSON HOLE NEWS&GUIDE, Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 31A

Blotter n Happy birthday: A 31-yearold Jackson man celebrated his birthday a little too hard Sunday. Police found him still drunk five hours after the celebration ended. Officers had responded to a call of a man passed out on the sidewalk near a downtown thrift store. When they arrived, a person was standing in the courtyard of a nearby church with his eyes closed, swaying back and forth. He had soiled himself and could barely stand. He had no taxi money and did not appear able to make it home on his own, so officers took him to jail on a public intoxication charge. At the jail, he blew a 0.14 on a portable breath test at around 8 a.m. n Happy birthday redux: A Belgrade Lakes, Maine, man celebrating his 21st birthday in Jackson was first in bars and then behind them Saturday. Police found the man passed out on a downtown bench with his head dangling off the edge. He smelled strongly of alcohol and had trouble sitting upright when police woke him. He said his friends left him during his birthday party, and he asked police to leave him alone so he could sleep. Officers arrested him on a public intoxication charge. n Seeking suspected molester: Police are patrolling the South Park Loop Road after an unknown man groped a woman running there Sunday. She reported a man grabbing her butt. She told police she thought he was hiding in the bushes while she ran past, because she hadn’t passed him on the sidewalk. She described him as a Hispanic man in his early 20s. A man driving by saw her running and noticed another runner behind her with a hoodie block-

ing his face. The driver drove by a few times, and the man went into a nearby business. n Stolen sign: A Jackson pawnshop worker went to lunch Thursday and noticed his business sign was gone. The worker told police he didn’t notice it missing before then but thought someone had taken it during the night. Police found the sign broken in half a short distance away. There are no suspects or evidence. The pawnshop estimates the sign will cost more than $1,000 to repair. n Marauding Marine: A selfproclaimed attempt at chivalry ended in a black mark on a 47-year-old transient man’s record Thursday. Police responded to a west Jackson bar after receiving a call of a Marine dressed in camouflage threatening people in the parking lot. When officers arrived, they found a man flat on his back in the lot of a nearby apartment complex asking passersby “que pasa?” When officers asked him about the threats, he said he was trying to defend a young woman’s honor. He ended the night in jail on a public intoxication charge. n Drink and dash: A Jackson bar was out $37 Friday after two men walked out on their tab. A bar employee said he saw them walk out but thought they were going to smoke. When they were gone for longer than he felt was normal, he went out to check on them and found they were gone. Police found a pickup truck matching the description of the one the men drove parked at a nearby apartment complex, but it wasn’t the right truck. The Jackson Police Department and Teton County Sheriff ’s Office received 762 calls for service between June 11 and June 17. Please proof and call Karen at 739-9541 or return via Fax at 733-2138.

Jason Jones of the Teton Raptor Center shows off a hybrid falcon Sunday during RaptorFest in Wilson. High winds and a red-tailed hawk flying high above prevented the falcon’s return. Jones immediately left the event to use a telemetry tracking system to relocate it.



RaptorFest provides Father’s Day entertainment. By Taylor Williams


Clad in a “jingle dress,” Nicolle Lee, a Northern Arapahoe tribe member from the Wind River Reservation, performs with the Wind River Dancers.

With a master poker face, a Eurasian eagle owl stares down curious onlookers.

ason Jones stood in the middle of the gravel lot, flanked by walls of people, waiting for the half-Merlin, half-gyrfalcon to attack the lure he twirled in his right hand. He whistled into the microphone as if calling a dog. The throngs of children, parents and grandparents assembled at the Hardeman barns in Wilson for RaptorFest 2012 grew quiet as they watched the Teton Raptor Center program director demonstrate a basic exercise in falconry. “I guarantee you this falcon is going to fly,” Jones said to the crowd. “It’s just a question of whether or not he’ll fly back.” The bird arced gracefully around the crowd, disappearing from sight, dipping below trees and battling gusts of wind as it circled the adjacent field. As the hybrid falcon descended toward the mark, a red-tailed hawk swooped into the vicinity, startling the smaller falcon and cutting the first demonstration short. But the second annual RaptorFest — Sunday’s free event to raise money and awareness for Teton Raptor Center, a nonprofit group that rehabilitates birds of prey and educates others about them — entailed much more than the demos. Children darted in and out of the food tent, their faces colored with condiments from Spring Creek Ranch burgers that blended with the reds and yellows of their

raptor-like face painting jobs. Helped along by wine and beer, parents gradually began dancing to the guitar pickings of local artists John Carney and Hank Phibbs, who channeled the Father’s Day theme with the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young song “Teach Your Children.” Raptorfest even had candy bars sporting its name on the label. For a cool $500, one man earned the chance to release a rehabilitated raptor in the wild. Teton Raptor Center Executive Director Amy Brennan McCarthy said people don’t often get to see and interact with injured and rehabilitated birds, and releasing one is a rare opportunity. “It’s kind of a singular moment and experience to be part of releasing that bird into the wild, and it’s really special,” she said. McCarthy later said she was thrilled with the size and diversity of the turnout. “The volume of people, the variety of ages and geographies that were represented — that was really rewarding,” she said. “Hopefully, we’ve enticed people to come out to the center.” Teton Raptor Center has expanded summer hours and also hosts two weekly events. Tours are offered six times a week, at noon and 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays. Tours cost $10 (free for children 3 and younger) and include flight demonstrations and educational talks. Weekly “hawk talk” forums are organized Monday mornings at Jackson Hole Lodge and Thursdays at 5 p.m. on the Teton Village Commons and are open to the public. The village presentations include flight demos, but will not be held June 28.

Scarlet gilia

Usually found in patches, scarlet gilia (pronounced gee-lee-ah) is often found growing in sagebrush flats or along dry roadsides. Another name for this wildflower is skyrocket. The brilliant red, elongated blossoms are trumpet-shaped and clustered on solitary stems about 1.5 to 2 feet tall. A rosette of comblike leaves grows close to the ground. Sit down in a colony of gilia for a while on a summer day and hummingbirds may come to visit. Attracted to the red color, hummers hover and then dart in close to thrust their slender bills down the tubes of the blooms as they seek nectar. In the process, the birds’ heads get dusted with pollen, which will be transferred to the next gilia flowers they go to, unknowingly assuring that pollination will take place. Scarlet gilia are plants called biennials. They grow only basal leaves their first year and flower their second. However, any geraniums I purchase have a chance at a sort of immortality. At the end of the summer, I dig up my geraniums and repot them. They spend the winter on southfacing windowsills in my cozy house. In the spring, I use a sharp knife to take cuttings, which I root in water


or damp sand. I’ll have more geraniums for the next spring, and so on and so on and so on. So, my initial investment can last a very long time. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Marilyn Quinn has a green thumb, so twice a month she shares her gardening tips with readers.

It starts early,


about 6 a.m., with clearing snow and checking equipment, ensuring the tram is ready to go in three hours. Once a week, Newman said, he gets to sleep in Corbet’s Cabin atop Rendezvous Mountain, complete with the perks of occasional power outages and 105 mph winds. But the job affords him ample opportunities to interact with tram riders, many of whom are visitors. “You have people around you all day long in the winter, and you can make them feel more welcome,” Newman said. “It’s more of a customer service-type deal then. I interact with tourists year-round, but I think I have more of a captive audience in the winter.” Though he works most Saturdays in September and October, Newman is a serious college football fan who adds a couple televisions to his living room setup each fall to create a sports bar atmosphere. Inevitably, the job of working on the water spills over into his free time. When he’s between seasons in April, Newman tries to get after longer rafting trips — often as lengthy as 10 days. His plans include floating the Grand Canyon this October. “I spend a lot of time on the scenic stretches, away from the crowds,” he said. “I grew up canoeing and rafting. That draws a lot of people here, and you can always find places to hike and get away.” Though he has adjusted to his seasonal routine after six years, Newman said he is keeping his options open. “A lot of people in this town work two or three jobs, and some stay here for 20 years,” he said. “I’m not fighting the system … but it’s seasonal, and it’s kind of tough to buy a house here. I’m just looking for a permanent position.”

All types of fireworks were banned from all national parks and forests in Wyoming. Forest service officials said fireworks had become serious hazards, especially in grassy areas, due to their tendency to leave smoldering bits that went unnoticed. The ban was also instituted in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota. ... Ranchers began the annual Gros Ventre cattle drive, a traditional migration that moved herds as large as 400 head anywhere from 30 to 50 miles from valley ranches to summer ranges in Teton National Forest. The three-week drives lasted most of June and generated big revenues for the federal government, with more than 14,000 cattle, 10,000 sheep and 3,000 horses ultimately making their way to the forest for summer grazing. Just like in the Old West, cowboys rode with the cattle, flanking the herds and bringing up the rear to ensure no beef was left behind.

The Jackson Town Council voted unanimously to repeal a section of the town’s municipal code dealing with adultery. This ordinance, imposed in 1973, levied a maximum fine of $200 for anyone caught “cohabiting with another in a state of adultery or fornication” and was written into the Indecency and Immorality sections of the town code. ... The Teton County School District canceled summer school sessions due to insufficient enrollment, prompting school officials to begin pushing for summer school enrollment earlier in the year. ... The Teton County Sheriff’s Office made 112 arrests through the first five months of the year, a 78 percent increase from 1981. During that same stretch, drunk driving arrests increased by 148 percent from the previous year, though statewide statistics showed an 11 percent decrease in overall criminal activity. In contrast to the sheriff’s department, the Jackson Police Department reported a 50 percent decrease in major crimes during the first five months of 1982.

An 81-year-old man was fined and placed on probation for shooting and killing a moose that was eating his landscaping. Albert Paul Teetzel peppered the grazing moose with birdshot from a .410 shotgun, and a game warden found 62 pellets in its carcass. Though Teetzel expressed regret and said he didn’t intend to kill the animal, he was fined the maximum amount of $750 and forced to pay restitution damages of $2,500, the value of the moose to the state. ... After a month of tests, radon gas was detected in the basement offices of the new Teton County building. Eleven people worked in those offices, nine of them full time. Subsequent research revealed high levels of the odorless, colorless, lung cancer-causing gas throughout the county. ... Teton County commissioners scrapped a plan to build a rental housing project next to Melody Ranch on Highway 89. The project would have created 35 to 55 units affordable for families with annual incomes between $15,000 and $27,000. It would have been financed by federal tax credits. Planners nixed it because they believed it was too far away from town services and might create traffic problems.

JACKSON HOLE NEWS&GUIDE, Wednesday, June 20, 2012 - 7B specified period of time to keep the body progressing without fatigue or overuse. However, many members feel they are “old” because, during the progressions, they are always being challenged. That feeling is not the exercise, and it is not age. It is what you have already done to your body up to your current age. Which type of person are you? Maybe you are the person who dabbled in a couple of sports in high school, periodically worked out on your own in college and found a hobby here in Jackson, hiking, biking and skiing on a sporadic basis. Or are you the type of person who participated in three to four sports in high school, competed in recreational sports in college and have made it more or less a job to get outdoors and recreate hard in every sport from kayaking to skate-skiing? We encounter the latter more often than not, which gives way to “beating the hell out of your body” syndrome. If you have beaten your body up with high-level or consistent sports activity, it also creates a false feeling of oldness. This reminds me of a movie quote from “The Guardian.” “If my muscles ache, it’s because I’ve used them,” one of the actors says. “I lived and I loved, danced, sang, sweated my way through a pretty damn good life. Getting old ain’t bad. Getting old, that’s earned.” I think if you can embrace these words and be able to move through your life till it is time to leave, you can consider it a good life, We all have bumps and bruises, but if you are breathing and can stand on your own, you can live a strong and long life.

types of foods will slow the aging process, create healthier skin (which, of course, makes you look and feel younger) and allow the release of “happy” hormones to aid recovery, growth and mental health. Sleep is the most likely neglected category that, without a doubt, makes you feel and look older. Sleep is compromised for a variety of reasons: socializing, drinking, studying, work, children and home responsibilities. Often this is not something easily corrected. I am just as guilty. But sleep should be just as much a priority as work and chores. Typically, the body requires a restful period of sleep of six to eight hours. Athletes’ Performance, an elite, high-level training facility, performed sleep case studies to help enhance athletic skill and performance within a person’s designated sport. Restful sleep, they found, contributed significant improvements in stamina, speed, strength and cardiovascular output without changing anything else in an athlete’s regime. The most common factor to “feeling old” is in our workouts. At T2BB, we progress each exercise, program or circuit-training session. It takes the body four to six weeks to neurologically adapt to a movement. We progress within the exercise and change that exercise after that


This is how you should look in the second part of The Pullover.

Valley Breeze Renegade lawyer to speak

The Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum will host an evening of living history with Gerry Spence, Wyoming’s renegade lawyer, on June 28. The program will be held in the Jackson Hole High School auditorium. Appetizers and beverages prepared by the high school’s culinary arts department will be served at 6:30 p.m., and the talk will begin at 7 p.m. Spence, a Wyoming native, graduating cum laude from the University of Wyoming Law School in 1952. Known across the country as a highly successful lawyer, Spence says he has spent his lifetime representing the poor, the injured, the forgotten and the damned against what he calls “the new slave master” — a combination of mammoth corporations and gargantuan government. He has tried and won many nationally known cases, including the Karen Silkwood case, the defense of Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge in Idaho, the defense of Imelda Marcos, the case against Penthouse magazine for Miss Wyoming and the murder defenses of Ed Cantrell and Sandy Jones. He has had more multimillion-dollar verdicts without an intervening loss than any lawyer in America. Spence is the founder of the nationally acclaimed Trial Lawyers College and Lawyers and Advocates for Wyoming. He has written and published 16 books, including the best-seller “How to Argue and Win Every Time.” He has frequently appeared on television and served as legal consultant for NBC television covering the O.J. Simpson trial. Spence lives in Jackson Hole with his wife of 40 years, Imaging. They have six children and 13 grandchildren. Tickets to the talk cost $5 for members of the historical society and museum, and $15 for others. Tickets may be purchased before the event at the museum, 225 N. Cache, or at Valley Bookstore. Memberships and tickets will be available at the door.

Weed fighters get recognition

Do your neighbors or friends work diligently perfecting their property by controlling noxious weeds and planting natives? Teton County Weed & Pest District suggests nominating them for “Homestead of the Month.” This program rewards landowners for their hard work protecting their property from invasive species and providing habitat for native vegetation and wildlife.

Brewing Co.

Teton Valley to glow


The Teton Valley Balloon Rally, a renamed and expanded version of a tradition on the west side of the Tetons, will be held July 2-4 in Driggs, Idaho.

Visit to print off the nomination form, which is due by the third Wednesday of the months June through September. Properties in Teton County will be judged based on lack of noxious weeds and abundance of native habitat. Winners will be advertised in the following week’s newspaper, have a 2-by-3-foot “Homestead of the Month” sign placed in their front yard and receive a $100 gift certificate for a local nursery of their choice. Protecting our natural resources is everyone’s responsibility and can be as simple as learning to identify noxious weeds found on your own property. The most important thing is to help control current infestations and stop new species from being introduced. When planting your gardens, shop local and choose native wildflower mixes. Helping to control invasives can also be done by using Certified Weed Free Forage products and taking time to clean your equipment, hiking and camping gear, shoes and pets before moving to a new location. Report new infestations to Teton County Weed and Pest District, and don’t be afraid to use us for assistance on your own property.

Food teachers gather in Jackson

On June 4 and 5, the Central Wyoming College Jackson’s Culinary Arts Program put on a professional development workshop for 15 Wyoming high school culinary instructors. They came from across the state, includ-

ing Gillette, Encampment, Cheyenne, Cody and Rock Springs. The workshop was funded by the Wyoming Department of Education. It sold out in three days, with a waiting list. The high school instructors were trained by five Jackson Hole executive chefs from the Silver Dollar Grill at The Wort Hotel, The Kitchen, Rusty Parrot, River Rock Assisted Living. Sun Dog Cafe in Victor, Idaho, also instructed. They were taught a variety of cooking techniques: baking, poaching, frying, roasting, sauteing, sous vide and molecular gastronomy. They were even brave enough to try sushi for the first time. The instructors worked with a variety of ingredients and dined on the fruits of their labor. They left with full stomachs and big smiles and rated the workshop as one of the best in the state. The teachers received training that was geared toward their needs in order to enhance the culinary arts in high school settings. Some of the instructors have been teaching high school for more than 40 years and requested professional development. “Most of the instructors were not aware we had a culinary program,” said Amy Madera, director of culinary and hospitality programs, “let alone the amazing partnerships we have in our community. This was an excellent way to provide hands-on training and show them what Jackson has to offer.” The teachers also fit in three backof-the-house tours of The Wort, the Center for the Arts and Snake River

The annual hot air balloon event in Driggs, Idaho, formerly a part of the Teton Valley Summer Festival, is scheduled to take place July 2 to 4. The Teton Valley Balloon Rally will include three mornings of hot air balloon flights from the Teton County Fairgrounds in Driggs as well as the Driggs Glow, a family-friendly evening event downtown July 3. At least seven balloon pilots from around the country will participate this year. Limited balloon rides are available to the public for purchase and may be requested online at www. Spectators are asked to arrive at the Teton County Fairgrounds at 6 a.m. each day of the rally. A hot breakfast will be available for purchase, courtesy of Seniors West of the Tetons, from 6 to 8 a.m. each day. T-shirts and raffle tickets will also be available for purchase. Driggs Glow, 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. July 3, will include children’s activities, opportunities to meet balloon pilots, live music, beer, wine and an art walk. In addition, restaurants will feature special menus. The evening will conclude with a raffle drawing and a traditional hot air balloon glow — at least five tethered, glowing, hot air balloons in the city’s large downtown parking lots. “It is exciting to take an older community tradition, such as this balloon rally, and keep it alive,” said Margaret Rose Breffeilh, a Teton Valley balloon pilot and one of the event coordinators. “Teton Valley is a truly majestic environment for the pilots, and the community is always so welcoming.” Breffeilh, event planner Virginia Powell Symons and bookkeeper Candy Davis have volunteered their time this summer to coordinate the rally. Originally hosted by Budweiser and later the Teton Valley Chamber of Commerce, the balloon event has become a tradition in Teton Valley. Breffeilh, Symons and Davis saw an opportunity to maintain the tradition of the balloon event and decided to take it in a slightly new direction for 2012. By renaming it the Teton Valley Balloon Rally and incorporating an evening community event, the coordinators hope to refresh the local and regional excitement about the event. Sponsors and volunteers are still needed. For information, go online to

People Jackson Hole architecture firm Ward and Blake Architects now counts one more architect on its staff since Chris Jaubert passed all of his ARE exams, said Mitch Blake, firm principal. Jaubert earned his Bachelor of Architecture from Louisiana Tech University in 2006 before heading to Jackson Hole hoping to gain greater experience with a more diverse landscape. Since joining Ward and Blake Architects that same year, Jaubert has worked on a variety of building types and continues to expand his knowledge of and love for architecture, including Jaubert a special interest in the impacts of culture and environment on design. Another Ward + Blake staff member also recently added to the firm’s credentials in sustainable design. Brett Bennett passed the LEED AP (BD+C) exam to become a LEED-accredited professional, the third member of the Ward and Blake firm to receive LEED professional certification. Bennett graduated from the University of Bennett Michigan in 2004 and got some hands-on work as a framer before moving to Galway, Ireland, where he spent two years designing under Niall J. Kearns Architects. The Rocky Mountains drew him to Wyoming, where he has worked for Ward and Blake Architects since 2007. “We all truly enjoy any opportunity to expand our education in the field on an ongoing basis,” Blake said,

“as well as to upgrade professional credentials.” • Hope College in Holland, Mich., has named Emily Smith to its dean’s list (3.5 or better GPA) for the second semester of the 2011-12 school year. She is the daughter of Bruce and Kristen Smith, of Jackson. • Madison Wigg was recently honored with the title of Presidential Scholar at Colorado Mesa University for achieving a perfect 4.0 GPA for the spring semester.

Staying safe in bear and lion country requires planning. Text by Johanna Love Illustrations by Diane Benefiel

W Prevent conflicts

Seed tray

4 feet

10 feet

Remember: A fed bear is a dead bear. When a bruin gets a food reward from your bird feeder, trash can or dog dish, it will come back to your house or your neighbor’s. Often, bears that obtain food or garbage become bold, destructive or dangerous. Bears tend to seek out garbage and birdseed. Folks who live in Teton County’s Bear Conflict Priority Area 1 are required to use bear-resistant garbage containers and to hang bird feeders at least 10 feet from the ground or deck, and at least 4 feet horizontally from any structure or tree. A catch pan is required under the feeder, at least 4 inches larger in diameter than the widest part of the feeder. The conflict area is roughly all of Teton County except the town of Jackson, Rafter J and Melody Ranch. To see a map, visit and click on the “Bear Conflict Priority Areas” overlay. Feeding wildlife in Teton County is illegal. Think about it: Feeding deer in your yard sounds lovely, but a mountain lion killing a deer in your yard? Scary. Don’t feed.

elcome to Wyoming, a place where you’re not atop the food chain. Those who visit or choose to live in the mountains need to realize that large predators like bears, mountain lions and wolves live here, too, and we must coexist. They were here first. We’re crowding them,

Know your bears Two kinds of bears inhabit the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem: grizzly and black. Why is it important to know the difference? They behave differently.

In general, grizzlies are larger and more unpredictable. They are more likely to charge if they feel threatened. Black bears are usually more likely to run or climb a tree than stand their ground or charge.

No hump

Tips for your home: • Put out garbage the day of pickup, not the night before. • Do not leave pet food out. Feed only as much as pets or livestock will eat at once. • Keep barbecue grills clean. Better yet, roll them into the garage. • Do not put meat, fish, fruits or other pungent scraps on your compost pile. Add lime to reduce odors and accelerate decomposition. • Consider an electric fence to keep bears or other animals out of compost piles, beehives, orchards or gardens. • Don’t plant fruit-producing trees or shrubs that could attract bears. • Consider removing dense brush near your home that could conceal a mountain lion or bear. • Install outdoor lighting. You can see better at night, and it will deter animals.

encroaching on their wilderness. As predator populations rebound, encounters with them are more likely. To avoid conflicts, we should learn about animals’ behavior, food habits and biology. The following text is created from government agencies that aim to keep you, and the critters, safe.

Front claw 2-4 inches long

Short claws

Front claw 1-2 inches long

Color or size of the bear is not a good indicator. Look for a combination of characteristics.

How to hike

• Travel in a group if possible. • Keep children close. • Sing, talk, make noise or use bear bells. • Watch for bear signs such as scat, diggings, trees torn apart. • Where there are ripe berries, bears may lurk. • Don’t hike at night. Bears and mountain

lions are most active at dawn, dusk and night. • Stay on trails. • Avoid carcasses. • Bring binoculars and scan ahead periodically. • Bring bear pepper spray and keep it on your belt.

For information, visit and click on “Bear Wise Jackson Hole” or see gggg

Wind Direction

Pepper spray works

Studies have shown that pepper spray is effective in encounters with large, aggressive predators and even ungulates. Based on data, experts say aggressive bears are deterred more than 90 percent of the time if pepper spray is used properly.

• Bear pepper spray is recommended for aggressive encounters with moose, mountain lions and bears. • You can’t use it if you can’t reach it. Keep it on your belt. • Practice reaching for your spray. You may not have time to remove it from the holster; you can spray from the hip. • If you spray into the wind, it can blow back in your face. Be aware of wind direction, but don’t hesitate to spray if you need to. • Don’t store bear pepper spray in direct sunlight in a hot car. It can explode, ruining your day and your interior.

Start spraying when a charging creature is about 30 feet away. It will run into the cloud of spray. Spray for several seconds, slightly downward and slightly side to side. If the bear keeps coming, spray another burst.

Visualize an encounter Think about how you would react if you encountered a predator. Two main reasons large carnivores show aggression: They feel threatened or see you as a food source. Defensive: Grizzly bears are most likely to attack if they are surprised, closely approached by people, protecting cubs or protecting food, like a carcass. If a bear stands on its hind legs, that’s not aggressive behavior. It’s just trying to identify you. What to do: Talk firmly, in a lowpitched voice and back away slowly. Do not run. If the bear charges, ready your pepper spray and blast it if the animal comes within 30 feet of you. If contact is made or about to be made, fall to the ground and play dead. Lie on your stomach, clasp your hands behind your neck, and point your elbows and toes out to keep from being rolled. Remain still. Don’t scream. The bear should leave if you don’t act like a threat. Do not move until you are sure the bear has left the area. Predatory: A bear or mountain lion that continues to approach you, follows you, disappears and reappears or

displays other stalking behaviors is acting in a predatory manner. Bears that attack you in your tent or confront you in your campsite should be considered a predatory threat. All close encounters with mountain lions should be considered predatory, as lions rarely act aggressively to defend themselves unless cornered. What to do: Yell, throw rocks or sticks, raise your arms, act mean, pick children up. Be prepared to physically fight back if necessary. Never play dead in a predatory attack; that could get you killed.

Bill was born June 1, 1917, in Taunton, Mass. He grew up in New Bedford, Mass., and attended school at The Berkshire Academy and Phillips Academy Andover. He graduated from Harvard College in 1939 and received his doctorate degree in chemistry in 1942 from Columbia University.

He was a member of the American Chemical Society and the National Academy of Science. In addition to chemistry, Bill had many interests, including reading, bridge, hiking, biking, fishing, sailing and skiing. He particularly loved being in nature. At his cabin in Jackson Hole, he enjoyed bird watching, wildlife viewing and all forms of natural history. At his farm along the Missouri River, he spent many happy hours chopping wood, maintaining trails, cultivating wild flowers and managing a small prairie.

For both Jessica and Randy, this was their second consecutive trip to nationals, and they showed well. After Cormac, Randy and Jessica had the second- and third-best Wyoming showings, respectively, in the Congress competition. Jessica and Randy also competed in supplemental debate, where Jessica advanced through five rounds and Randy competed for seven rounds, eventually facing the second- and third-place finishers in this event, respectively. This is the 14th consecutive year the Jackson team has qualified at least one student for nationals and the 25th year overall, according to head coach Londe Gagnon. The trip was funded by more than 50 local businesses and individuals. “The community of Teton County has a long history of interest in and support of their speech team,” Gagnon said, “which was evident this entire season and carried through as we prepared for nationals.” Happy birthday wishes to Johanna Love, Carl Eveleigh, Jenny Hickey, Lisbeth Beise, Anna Day, Bob Hanlon, Linda Macmillian, Kira Brazinski and Ted Donnan.

The State is in the process of developing a five year Consolidated Plan for the State of Wyoming covering the 2013 through 2017 program years and a one year Action Plan for 2013 funding. The State is providing and encouraging citizen participation in accordance with the State Citizen Participation Plan. The purpose of the Consolidated Plan and Annual Action Plan is to describe the method for and geographic distribution of funds, describe the activities it plans to undertake to address housing, homeless and other special needs activities and non-housing community development activities as well as describe other actions it intends to take during the next year. These two plans will also describe Program specific information on the four HUD Community Planning and Development Formula programs, the state allocation for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME), and Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) formerly the Emergency Shelter Grant and the Housing for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA) program.

As well, $500,000 will be set aside each year for purchase, rehabilitation and sale of foreclosed or abandoned single family homes in Wyoming. Together with program income the WCDA anticipates having approximately $1.25 million for the program each year which should result in the purchase and rehabilitation of up to 10 homes CDBG: It is anticipated that the CDBG program will have approximately $2 million annually which will be used to fund community and economic development projects. Projects must demonstrate compliance with a national objective of urgent need, elimination of slum and blight or benefit to low to moderate income persons. ESG: The purpose of the Wyoming ESG program is to provide housing assistance to the state’s homeless population through community-based shelters that provide an array of services designed to meet the needs of homeless persons throughout the state. It is anticipated the program will receive approximately $285,000 annually for these purposes. HOPWA: The program is in the first year of a three year grant cycle and received $623,117 for the current grant cycle (1/1/12 – 12/31/14).

Intrepid Outdoors writer on the trail of New Orleans’ wily muffuletta. See page 2C.


Midway through the race, Matthew Chorney, 23, leads the pack of 229 runners Saturday during the Jackson Hole Half Marathon. He won the event and set a new course record with a time of 1:12:54.6, more than 8 minutes ahead of the second-place finisher.

Perfect day for half marathon Pathways and weather cooperate for delightful early summer race By Miller N. Resor The Moose-Wilson Pathway was choked by a southbound stream of more than 200 long-distance runners

Saturday morning, as competitors in the Jackson Hole Half Marathon made their way over the 13.1-mile course. The race is run from the pathway in front of Teton Village to Phil Baux Park at the base of Snow King. The course was touted for departing from Jackson’s trail system for only about two miles along Highway 22 and again from the west Jackson post of-

fice to Snow King Mountain. Back for its fourth year, the race brought out 229 runners from 38 states. Mother Nature treated one and all to an early summer morning ideal for long-distance running. “Starting out, it was the perfect temperature,” said Addie Hare, of Kelly. “A light breeze kept me cool the whole way to town.”

Hare placed second overall among the women, losing by less than 2 seconds to Janelle Ralph, from Gold Hill, Ore. Ralph finished the race in 1 hour 35 minutes and 15.8 seconds; Hare finished in 1:35:17.2. “I was trying to catch her with every ounce of my being,” Hare said.

River ambassador seeks to raise awareness Pistono urges patience and respect at boat ramps and along Snake’s busiest section. By Miller N. Resor There are a number of reasons the boat ramp beneath the Wilson Bridge is hectic. First and foremost, Wilson is the most heavily used river access point in the valley. Fishing guides, scenic trips, private boaters and Sunday afternoon sun bathers all cherish this easily accessible and beautiful section of river. In July of last year, more than 20 boats an hour launched from the Wilson ramp. Add to that the lack of proper parking, a proper boat ramp or even a proper eddy, and it

is understandable that a busy day at the boat ramp can be chaotic and stressful. Brady Johnston, a raft guide for Jackson Hole Whitewater, was waiting for a busload of clients Sunday morning. He had two large rafts tethered high up in the small eddy. From his seat on the bow of his boat, he pointed to a bridge pylon just below the ramp that he saw four commercial boats run into, or bonk, earlier that morning. “If you are at the bottom of that eddy and trying to get around the pylon, that’s the sort of thing that can happen,” he said. As he spoke, a Subaru with a trailer backed down the rocky embankment to lower a raft into the water. The Subaru managed, but Johnston said he has seen cars get stuck on the loose See AMBASSADOR on 5C

great stores, and whenever I am in New Orleans, it is a required visit. But honestly, the rudeness of the counter people at the Central Grocery soon sent me in search of a new muffuletta dispensary, which I found nearby in the Progress Grocery owned by the Perrone family. Three and sometimes four of these tightly wrapped submarinestyle sandwiches of firm, round loaves sliced horizontally and crammed with spicy Italian meats, cheese and the signature olive-salad relish (giardineri) always came home in my suitcase.

Lasts for almost a week


Whenever Gary Taylor and I head off to explore another fishing area, he pauses at a local deli that makes muffulettas (and possibly sold boudin, hogshead cheese, Zapp’s Chips, Cajun Chef green hot sauce, crawfish pies and Hubig’s New Orleans-style fried fruit pies, etc.) so the ice chest could be loaded with staples. Standard muffulettas come in 8- and 10-inch rounds that are sliced into quarters. One sandwich lasts almost a week, and the flavors improve every day. Since Hurricane Katrina, our once-special delis and butcher shops have become rarer. And sadly, the Progress Grocery on Decatur closed, although there is a happy ending to that story. The thought of Viki’s homemade muffuletta buoyed my day the same way hooking a 25-pound redfish would. I was on hand as she assembled all the makings, including several large garlic and multi-seeded Italian rounds from Rouses, an upscale Louisiana-based supermarket chain with a Slidell location. Also laid out was a healthy array of spicy but lower-calorie Italian meats to be joined

by one of the world’s great treats, piquant provolone. Her favorite olive relish stood at the ready. She assembled this supreme sandwich with the care of a watchmaker, removing some of the inner top loaf before soaking both bottom and top with olive oil. Next she layered the meats, slightly melted the cheese, and piled on the olive salad before another brief toasting. Enhanced with lean ham-flavored red beans and a splash or two of leftover jambalaya, the final result was the culmination of all Louisiana power-eating dreams. Even for veteran Rulon Burger tackler and sports pages editor Miller Resor, this food assemblage would be a challenge. I almost forgot to mention that afterwards we forced ourselves to consume slices of Viki’s hauntingly tart/ sweet kumquat cake with vanilla Blue Bunny. After the next day of fooling redfish outside of Delacroix in the company of Gary and his longtime backcountry guiding friend, J. P. Morel (a Tabasco country — New Iberia — native), my Louisiana saga had to end. But not before I stashed two remaining muffuletta quarters that Viki saved for me for my trip. I also inspected Rouses Market to ensure rumors that they are selling the original 5-inch and 8-inch Progress Grocery muffuletta sandwiches still produced by the Perrone family were true. There’s simply no other place like Louisiana. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Paul Bruun writes weekly on his adventures and misadventures in the great outdoors.

This intermediate to advanced trail is a seemingly never-ending succession of tight banked turns. At the top, you can swing across banked boardwalks and then pop off a rock before barreling back into tight turns through trees. Quick Draw, a black diamond trail that drops through the trees next to Poo Bear, is a series of rocks, jumps and roots that even an experienced biker may want to scope out before hitting at full speed. Clay Curley, a board member with Teton Freedom Riders who was riding opening weekend, said he likes all the trails, although True Grit may be his favorite. “I think we need more of it,” he said. “It is a great place to drop kids.

The Snake River Fund has rehired River Ambassador Jay Pistono to help manage the Wilson to South Park stretch of the Snake, the busiest section of river in the valley. His third season in the post, Pistono greets and educates boaters while helping ease congestion during times of heavy use.

gravel of the steep ramp. He also said that when the launch is busy, it is almost impossible for boats trying to take out at the ramp to catch the eddy. “I can’t wait for the new park,” Johnston said, referring to plans to renovate the Wilson boat ramp and surrounding areas. In the meantime, the Snake River Fund, an organization started in 1998 to deal with increased river usage, has hired river ambassador Jay Pistono for a third summer to help mitigate some of these issues as well as a number of others. Pistono is not new to the role as an outdoor diplomat, having served as the Teton Pass Ambassador for six years. Pistono will split his time between the Wilson and South Park boat ramps Friday to Sunday, as well as during especially busy days throughout the summer. Around both the Wilson and South Park boat ramps, Pistono emphasizes the importance of patience and awareness. “The place can be busy, but, if you have the right attitude, you are going to get on the water and have a great day,” he said. Pistono has been meeting with commercial floating companies throughout the spring in an attempt to stagger launch times and decrease the early morning chaos. Being completely prepared to get on the river before launching a boat is key, he said. This includes using the bathrooms, which Pistono points out are often busy at the same time as the boat ramp. Also being aware of where you are parked and what that means for others is essential, he said. When space is tight, Pistono is more than willing to help back in trailers. Another part of his job is to remind boaters to respect the river, wildlife and one another to create harmony on the river, he said. His newest responsibility is help-

ing Wyoming Game and Fish combat the spread of aquatic invasive species. He is now certified to check boats for inspection decals and will not allow boats without decals to launch.

“The place can be busy, but, if you have the right attitude, you are going to get on the water and have a great day.” – Jay Pistono Snake river ambassador

“Wyoming Game and Fish and the Snake River Fund are making a big push on this,” he said. “The places that have invasive species are really bummed they have them.” Protecting wildlife is another area of concern for Pistono. Practicing proper catch and release techniques is

important as is giving wildlife space on the river. There are a number of moose living in the river corridor between Wilson and South Park as well as a population of bald eagles. “Sometimes you have no choice and end up floating right beneath a perched eagle, but I try and give them as much space as possible,” he said. Pistono also encourages good river etiquette. If one boat is passing another boat, it should announce its presence and then give the boat it just passed plenty of space. “Don’t leapfrog a boat and then fish right in front of it,” he said. Finally, Pistono wants to remind river users that there is a lot of private land along the Wilson to South Park stretch of river. “It’s pretty simple,” he said, “Be considerate of where you anchor, and don’t leave behind garbage.” All in all, Pistono thinks people do a great job on the river, and he actually doesn’t have to deal with too many problems. “The more aware people are, the less problems we have,” he said.

Despite a collision with teammate Dan Amborski, Teton Trash Talker center fielder Kirk Vanskike catches the fly ball and prepares to throw it in Thursday evening during a competitive league softball game against Graham4/Terra Firma at Cow Pasture Field 2.

Softball leagues as competitive as ever With 29 teams playing rec league softball, competition is at an all-time high. By Miller N. Resor Jackson’s softball leagues have come a long way. When “Big” Dave Meador started playing 20 years ago, there was only one league and all games were played at one field at the base of Snow King. Now, there are nine competitive teams, 13 recreational teams and six women’s teams playing at three different fields four nights a week. “The biggest problem is the season isn’t long enough,” said Meador, who pitches in the competitive league for the Teton Trash Talkers, the reigning champions. To make up for the short season, many of the players in the competitive league form all-star teams in the offseason and play tournaments. “It’s a great way to meet people,” Meador said. “It’s fun.” As the season approaches its midpoint, the defending champs were taking on Graham4/ Terra Firma on a beautiful summer evening. Unlike the old days, when Jackson supported a healthy fast-pitch league, all rec league softball is now slow-pitch. In the competitive league, players effortlessly swat the ball, crushing line drives directly at the gaps and blasting home runs into nearby houses. The only thing more impressive is the defense it takes to stop this barrage of hits. In the top of the third inning, the Trash Talkers handled two hard-hit line drives to third base and shortstop for two quick outs. The third out came on an impressive catch on a pop fly. Sitting down in the stands with a beer, Trash Talker Ben Arlotta said, “When everyone on defense is a golden glove. It just doesn’t matter.” Arlotta has been with the Trash Talkers for seven years and has been playing baseball since he was 6. He said his team is “competitive, but fun.

Trash Talker right fielder Mike Gates catches a fly ball against Graham4/Terra Firma. The Trash Talkers lost the hard-fought game 15-13, but remain in the lead in the league.

“We have never had a team argument, and it is a team rule not to yell at the umpires,” he said. The difference between the competitive and recreational leagues, said Arlotta, “is we play a little more intense and try a little harder.” In the end, Graham4/Terra Firma handed the Trash Talkers their first loss of the season, claiming a 15-13 victory. Brad Larson, who plays for Graham4, said he plays because “you got to have competition in your life.” He said most of the games are pretty close. Patrick King, also of Graham4/Terra Firma, agrees. “This is the tightest competition in years,” he said.

Racers take off at the start of the Jackson Hole Half Marathon outside Teton Village on Saturday. Seventy-nine men and 137 women finished this year’s race.

Alex Schott, 28, runs through the finish chute at Phil Baux Park at the base of Snow King Mountain. She finished the 13.1-mile course in a time of 2:15:17.5.

HALF MARATHON Continued from cover

husband, Doug Hare, was still impressed by his wife’s performance. “I’m the type of guy that normally lets a horse take me everywhere,” he said. “I admire her perseverance.” The Hares were not the only family at the race. Kristin and Jason Irvine ran together, completing the course in just over two hours and finishing in 49th and 51st in their respective divisions. Kristin Irvine was all smiles at the finish line. “It wasn’t too bad,” she said, Alex Gordon, who at 16 years old was the youngest male in the race, finished first in the under-19 category and ninth overall with a time of 1:31:52.9. He also beat his father, Scot Gordon, by over 20 minutes. The family was on vacation from Yucaipa, Calif., where the younger Gordon is a crosscountry and track runner. The course was beautiful he said. “You notice the altitude difference at first, but I got here a couple days before and I have run a few times, so I was acclimated.”

At the other end of the spectrum was Robert Sielski, who was in Jackson visiting his sister, Betty Momoda, for his 70th birthday. Sielski actually ran a full marathon, starting at the finish, running to the village and then running back to town again. The full marathon was run by 18 people, but because of a lack of participants, competitors kept their own times for the first half and added it to their second-half time. Among the out-of-towners competing Saturday, Jeff Rode, from Powell, just likes longdistance running races. “I like the camaraderie among the people,” he said. “You meet a lot of interesting people” Rode has run in the Boston Marathon and the Philadelphia Marathon. Afterward, he spent time exploring the cities. He did the same in Jackson and commented on the scenery and history of the area. Phillip Autrey, from Mechanicsburg, Pa., on the other hand, likes the challenge. He likes it so much he is trying to run a half marathon in all 50 states. The race in Wyoming was his 25th state; next week he will race his 26th in Alaska.

Catherine Campbell, 28, kicks her heels as she comes through a tunnel in the second half of the Jackson Hole Half Marathon on Saturday. Campbell finished in 2:10:11.4.

The best time of the day was recorded by Matt Chorney, who finished in 1:12:54.6. Chorney has lived in Jackson since graduating from Sacred Heart University in Connecticut. where he ran cross-country and track. He jokingly referred to himself as a Skinny Skissponsored athlete, because that is where he works. Chorney had never run a half marathon before, but after talking to friends he decided he would float the first eight miles and approach the final five like the 10-kilometer races he used to run in college.

Race organizer Pam Reed, who is a champion ultra-marathon runner, said, “Jackson Hole is a beautiful place for a race, we had optimal conditions and people loved the pathways.” She expressed regret that the full marathon was canceled, but was grateful that those signed up dealt with the change graciously. She thinks the race will be limited to a half marathon in future years. Jackson hosts a full marathon in September. Complete results can be found on page 9C.

Michel van Veen gives some tender loving care to a Pinarello road bike Saturday at The Hub Bicycles as store owner Aaron Grutzmacher, behind him, prepares to service a mountain bike. “Our attention to detail is extremely high,” Grutzmacher said. “The end result is all about the rider.”

Customer service fuels bike shop The Hub takes care of patrons ‘until the end,’ owner says. By Taylor Williams When Aaron Grutzmacher started his own business in 2007, he had a garage and two decades of experience racing and repairing bikes. Grutzmacher, 31, the owner of The Hub Bicycles, eventually moved his operation to Teton Village before landing in Jackson last summer. Over the course of five years, he has built a customer base ranging from professional riders to moderate cycling enthusiasts. Though he knows customers can find the majority of the store’s bikes and accessories online, they can’t get the quality, in-house service through their computers, and that’s what keeps them coming back.

“We’re not trying to be different,” Grutzmacher said. “But as far as the aesthetics, the products and the knowledge, this is a cyclists’ bike shop. If you’re into riding bikes, you’re probably going to be happy if you come here.” The store, which is located near Pica’s Mexican Taqueria, is in the process of building its Web page and social media followings. Ultimately, though, the shop views its online presence as a means of driving people into the store as opposed to generating big sales. Because that’s where the bedrock of the business — the cutting-edge products and expertise of Grutzmacher and chief mechanic Michel van Veen — is on display. Van Veen, 40, brings more than a decade of professional experience as a European bike mechanic to the table, and an equally firm belief in individualized service. “We listen to the customers and give them specific attention,” he said.

The Hub’s product lines and longterm customer relationships are integral to its success in a business that has shrunk drastically in recent years. According to the National Bicycle Dealers’ Association, the number of independent stores, which numbered nearly 8,000 in the 1980s, had dwindled to 5,000 by 2004, several years before the economy started eating away at disposable income. Grutzmacher said communicating the advantages of his service-oriented strategy to customers can be tough. Although his prices can’t aggressively compete with those of online retailers — the cheapest model starts at a little less than $3,000 — respect for the shop’s professionalism has contributed to repeat business. “Today’s market can be quick and cheap,” Grutzmacher said. “But our customers understand that when they buy from us, we’re gonna take care of them until the end.”

Firm keeps focus through three decades Downtown investment firm helps clients, and now their children and grandchildren. By Emma Breysse In 30 years, the Pearl Avenue investment business known today as Wells Fargo Advisors has gone through name changes and market swings. In those decades, firm employees have helped Jacksonites plan their fiscal futures. The service has stretched across years and generations as the firm evolved with its clients. Some of Wells Fargo Advisors’ customers have been with the firm for the entire 30 years, branch manager Chad Driewer said. See FINANCE FIRM on 12C


Wells Fargo Advisors Kelly Lockhart and Chad Driewer stand outside their office on Pearl Avenue. The business celebrated its 30th anniversary Thursday.

FINANCE FIRM Continued from 11C

“We’ve helped them with their early jobs and planning for their kids’ futures, and now we’re helping them manage their retirement,” Driewer

said. “For some of them, we’re advising their kids and grandkids now. Our clients are part of that family feeling here, and we’re excited to see that continue.” On Thursday the firm held a reception for clients. The business is not part of the Wells Fargo banking arm, though it does operate under the corporation’s extended umbrella. The business started as an offshoot of an Idaho Falls A.G. Edwards office and has remained at its Pearl Avenue location for 28 of the past 30 years. As mergers and acquisitions have reshaped financial institutions, the firm’s name has changed. Advisors previously worked under the auspices of A.G. Edwards and Wachovia Securities. Through the changes, employees have helped customers make sense of financial markets.

“Our office has really been like a small family. ... I mean, I have a title, but I still take out the trash.” – Chad Driewer branch manager wells fargo advisors











“We have had several market swings over the years we’ve been in business,” Driewer said. “Our job is to help our clients understand those market swings. Our job kind of evolves with the evolving market,” he said. After working as a financial advisor for the past 12 years, Driewer took over as branch manager of the Jackson office earlier this year, he said. Former branch manager Kelly Lockhart still works with the firm and will continue most of his current duties, including advising his clients, Driewer said. Barron’s ranked Lockhart as the top financial advisor in Wyoming for 2012, with $224 million under his management, according to www. Although he has a new title, Driewer will continue to serve his customers and the firm as he has in the past. “Our office has really been like a small family for many years,” he said. “We’re all a team. I mean, I have that title, but I still take out the trash,” Driewer said. “Our whole goal is to help whoever comes through this office, and the way we do that is really going not going to change very much, no matter who has that title in front of their name.”

Favorite vendors will be back, like the Everest MoMo Shack, Cosmic Apple Gardens, Snowdrift Farms, 460 Bread and Lark’s Meadow Farms, which produces award-winning sheep’s milk cheese. The market has about 20 to 25 vendors, he said. Snake River Grill is a sponsor of the whole market with a weekly booth, Michel said. Tonight, the market will host special activities for children as part of the Jackson Hole Fire Festival, Michel said. Starting at 4:30 p.m. kids are invited to build a mikoshi dedicated to the Earth before walking it down to the festival, he said. Throughout the summer, kids entertainment will generally start at 5:30 p.m.

Entertainment for grown-ups includes several open-mic evenings as well as bike-in movies. Every Wednesday in August, a film will begin an hour after the market ends on the grass by the church. Last year, favorites like “E.T.” and “The Princess Bride” played on the outdoor screen. As its name suggests, the People’s Market strives to make locally grown goods accessible to all. Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, benefits are accepted at the market, Michel said. All profits from the market benefit Slow Food in the Tetons. The market is open from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays through Sept. 19. Visit or contact Michel at or 690-0705 for information.

For the people, by the people. Starting today, the Jackson Hole People’s Market returns for a third summer with its ongoing mission “to build community through food, art, music and family, while celebrating products produced locally.” The first People’s Market of the season begins at 4 p.m. today in the Redeemer Lutheran Church parking lot at the corner of Gill Avenue and Willow Street, across from the Teton County/Jackson Recreation Center. The market runs through mid-September. With new sponsors and vendors — like Snake River Grill offering its beloved Eskimo bars — this summer’s bounty may be the best yet. “Last year it grew so that every market was bigger than the market we had the first year,” Steve Michel, market founder and manager, said. The People’s Market has become as much a community hangout as a bustling marketplace. Every Wednesday, the market hosts live music, microbrews for sale, kids entertainment and good eats. “There’s a good crowd of people excited to come every week to buy their veggies, bread and cheese, grab a beer and check out craft booths,” Michel said. “There’s a good family environment to it.” Due to the early spring this year, there should be vegetables galore at the first few markets, fresh produce that usually isn’t available until later. “We should have a bountiful early summer,” Michel said. “That will be great.” New this year, the People’s Market will offer outside yoga led by one of three valley studios beginning at 5:30 p.m. The yoga session coincides with kids activities, allowing parents to leave their children at the entertainment area and then go practice yoga, Michel said. “That’ll be a nice little break for them,” he said. After yoga, attendees can enjoy frozen drinks from The Liquor Store or a beer from Thai Me Up, Snake River Brewing Co. or Wind River Brewing

The Dunwells — David Hanson, Dave Dunwell, Joseph Dunwell, Jonny Lamb, Rob Clayton — are rising stars in the U.K. They kick off the inaugural JacksonHoleLive summer concert series Saturday.

British mates to kick off summer concerts

he Dunwells emerged from the pubs of Leeds, England, two and a half years ago with a sound so polished and distinct their rapid rise didn’t surprise anyone but them. “It’s mental,” guitarist and songwriter Joe Dunwell said of the international fanbase. On Saturday, the Dunwells kick off the new JacksonHoleLive summer concert series staged at the base of Snow King Mountain Resort. The show will be the first of six free concerts peppering the summer. Jackson’s own Whiskey Mornin’ will open for The Dunwells at 5:30 p.m., bringing a “funky danceable” sound, according to lead guitarist Leif Routman. The Dunwells, on tour with their debut album, “Blind Sighted Faith, will set a high bar for the acts to come. The U.K. group’s sound is an intriguing blend of acoustic folk and electric roots, simultaneously familiar and new, with undertones of British pop. Joe Dunwell and his brother David Dunwell wrote and played music on their own for years, frequenting openmic nights and pubs around Leeds. “Leeds is kind of like the middle of nowhere,” Dunwell said. Now the Dunwells are in the middle of something big, something that began when the band formed. The musicians found each other. Guitarist Dave Hanson met Joe Dunwell at an open mic and was impressed by his singing. They hung out, played music and became great

friends. David Dunwell and bassist Rob Clayton are old friends, and drummer Johnny Lamb is Clayton’s cousin. “We’re all mates,” Dunwell said. Their friendships make the adventure of their rising stardom all the more exciting. Dunwell said they’re thrilled to share success with each other. The band toured the U.S. a year

ago and quickly developed a following stateside. This summer, the musicians will hopscotch between the states and Europe to promote “Blind Sighted Faith.” After Jackson, they travel to Denver to perform at Red Rocks. “It’s just been a roller coaster,” Dunwell said. “We’re going to Amsterdam after America. That will also be the first time.”

With all of the travel and the rush of newfound fame, The Dunwells still focus their excitement on music and making new tunes, Dunwell said. “We’re constantly writing music,” he said. “We actually have lots of time to kill backstage and on the road. We always have a guitar in hand, especially with all five of us together.”

Free for all Jackson asked for more live music downtown, and a coalition answered by creating JacksonHoleLive, a new, free, allages summer concert series. The organizers are Hole Lotta Music and Live Event Strategies with Snow King Sports and Event Center and the town of Jackson.

The Pimps of Joytime will play Friday at the Pink Garter Theatre. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the show starts at 10. Tickets cost $12 in advance or $15 the day of. Ever since bandleader Brian J started the group seven years ago, the Pimps of Joytime have cultivated a tight sound. Defying classification, the band draws from a variety of influences, including older rhythm and blues artists like Curtis Mayfield and

Stevie Wonder and contemporary rock groups like The Black Keys. Brian J also listed soul and Afrobeat as influential to the sound and credited his time spent immersed in the music scene of New Orleans. “There’s real soul and spirit down there,” he said. “Great musicians to come out of New Orleans, like Louis Armstrong, you can still feel that spirit down there.” However, at the end of the day, Brian J said, it’s not about what category the group fits into. “The aim is really to do something authentic,” he said. “When you hear it, you just think it’s authentic music. With any band that achieves greatness, there’s a level to it that’s not necessarily just a genre.” Still, the band’s sound could be umbrellaed under funk. Brian J cited Sly and The Family Stone as a prime example of a group grounded in funk that integrated other styles. “They cover a lot of ground,” he said. “They’re known as funk, but it’s just great songwriting. Some of their stuff is gospel-influenced, some has a

little ’50s doo-wop — there’s a lot of elements.” The Pimps of Joytime recently issued an extended-play remix of their earlier four-track album, “Janxta Funk,” and plan to release a new studio record in early 2013. The band markets itself with social media but relies most on audience word of mouth. Establishing a nationwide following takes time and hard work, Brian J said. “Some places we do great, and some places we do horribly,” Brian J said. “It’s just one of those things. You hang in there and keep playing and releasing music. But it’s a slow build.” Throughout the band’s seven years together, the members’ goals and priorities remain the same: Above all else, they want to give great live shows that leave their fans feeling somewhere in between inspired and jolted. “Hopefully, they walk away from our shows not thinking, just feeling,” Brian J said. “Music is emotional. It’s a primal communication, and when it’s done right the whole thinking apparatus takes a back seat to feeling elevated.”

Mariachi Divas thrive in traditionally male domain –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Mariachi Divas What: All-female mariachi band Where: Center Theater, Center for the Arts When: 8 p.m. Monday How much: $25 Web:, –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Amanda H. Miller The Mariachi Divas bring boundless energy and creativity to a type of world music often performed by male musicians. “There are a lot of girls out there who love mariachi music and want to play it,” Divas founder Cindy Shea said. “There just aren’t many opportunities.” So Shea set out to change that: In 1999, she formed the Mariachi Divas in Los Angeles, bringing together a handful of talented female musicians. “Now there are a whole bunch of us,” she said. With 20 musicians total in the group, a dozen of them will journey to Jackson to perform Monday at the Center for the Arts. The remaining eight are holding down the fort in California, continuing to perform as the official mariachi band of Disneyland.

Twelve of the Mariachi Divas will travel to the valley this week to give a concert Monday night at the Center for the Arts.

The Divas land in Jackson with their brand-new eighth album, “Oye.” Already, it has been nominated for a Grammy award, the group’s third Grammy nomination. Their 2008 album, “Canciones De Amor,” won a Grammy for the Best Regional Mexi-

can Album of the Year. Mariachi music, best known for its Mexican roots, is a spirited blend of instrumentation and vocals. “But it’s really a world music now,” Shea said. “You can basically find it in every country with its own sound.”

Shea came to mariachi music by way of playing the trumpet, which she took up at age 8. After studying Latin jazz under Arturo Sandoval at Florida International University, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in Latin music. “It’s like baseball,” she said. “I always knew I liked Latin music, but once I started playing it, I really fell in love with it.” The music is diverse and varied. It can go anywhere Shea directs it. She loves to work with mariachi music because it can be so many different things at once. “There are so many different sounds and styles,” she said. “Your ears never get tired of it.” The Divas continue to grow their ranks, bringing on more musicians, more energy. Summer touring forces the group to split up, with some members on the road while others remain rooted in Disneyland. As such, the Divas have had to grow to keep up with the demand for their music. “It’s opening the doors for other young musicians to make mariachi music, especially young women,” Shea said.

Southern tradition boils up in Jackson –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– What: Seventh annual Crawfish Boil When: Noon to 9 p.m. Saturday Where: Cutty’s How much: $15 in advance, $20 day of Web: –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Kelsey Dayton It started simply as a party. Harper Hollis was moving to Jackson from Louisiana for the summer. His brother, already in Jackson, requested crawfish, so Hollis and his friend, Dylan Leonoudakis, packed 60 pounds. They invited friends over for a get-together. The next year they did the same thing, but this time word had spread, and more people wanted invites. Since then, the party has grown exponentially to become a community event. For this year’s party, the seventh, Collins is bringing 800 pounds of live crawfish to Cutty’s. The event also will feature live music all day, including headliner band The Stooges Brass Band from New Orleans. Hollis, now a full-time resident of Jackson, misses eating crawfish. It’s more than just the taste. Anytime there is crawfish boiling, it becomes a party, he said. “Cold beers taste so much better when you have that spiciness on your fingers and you are sweating,” he said. “I mean, a cold Corona with that is just heaven.” Last year, more than 500 people turned out for the Crawfish Boil. In the earlier years it was primarily Southern college kids working and playing in Jackson for the summer. Now, it’s a community event for people of all ages, Hollis said. People bring blankets and chairs and enjoy lawn games while tasting some true Southern cooking.

Guests peel tiny crustaceans at the sixth annual Crawfish Boil in 2011.

The menu features red beans and rice provided by Trey Davis, owner of Sweetwater Restaurant. “It’s about as Cajun as you can get,” Hollis said. The main event, though, is the crawfish. Chef Billy Corimer boils the crawfish with cayenne pepper and other spices, potatoes, corn, mushrooms and onions, letting the flavor seep into their bodies. “It’s kind of your own little buffet in front of you,” he said. As he works, he keeps drinking beer. “The last batch is always the best,” Hollis said. “And at the end, we’ll all be dancing.” For crawfish beginners, it might seem like a lot of work for a little meat, Corimer said. But, the reward is worth it. Break it in half at the head, peel it like a shrimp, and, if you are feeling bold, suck the head —

that’s where all the spices are. Corimer grew up attending crawfish boils. “It’s kind of a way of life in the spring,” he said. While the food is the main attraction, a crawfish boil is really about the camaraderie, he said. A big part is having friends around telling you what a good — or bad — job you are doing with the food. There is a culture of openness and friendliness associated with a crawfish boil, he said. Which makes an event like the Jackson party the perfect place for those new to eating crawfish to hone their skills. Anyone who looks like they know what they are doing will be happy to share tips and give a lesson, Corimer said. There is no shame in asking. But the best way to get better at it is practice, so come prepared to eat.

FISHING ISN’T AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE; AND IT NEVER WAS A Brief History Of Fisheries Management

Dr. Frank Rahel University of Wyoming

We tend to think that things were better in the “good old days.” However, anglers have been complaining about depleted fish populations since the 1800s. Dr. Rahel will explore the history of fisheries management through the stages of fish culture, harvest regulations, habitat improvement and, finally, ecosystem management. He will end by discussing current management issues such as invasive species and global climate change that go far beyond the challenge of shortening the time between bites.

Peace event to channel protection to bison –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Buffalo Field Campaign What: World Peace and Prayer Day When: 4:00 p.m. until sundown Thursday Where: Triangle X Ranch, Grand Teton National Park How much: Free Web: ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

contingent of American Indians as well as attendees from Australia, Japan, New Zealand and all over the United States, Jules said. Jackson residents have attended past peace ceremonies. “Last year we had a smaller gathering in Minnesota,” Jackson woodworker Brad Watsabaugh said. “It was more for honoring the Earth, but it turned out to be an amazing gathering.” Free-spirited folk who are attuned to the pulse of the Earth attend World Peace and Prayer Day, Watsabaugh said. There’s no political or spiritual agenda.

By Mike Koshmrl Hail the bison. In its 17th year, World Peace and Prayer Day will hold its annual ceremony against a familiar backdrop: the majestic Tetons. The common thread is “Peace on Earth,” but World Peace and Prayer Day is a transient celebration with a general theme that shifts from year to year. The event comes to Triangle X Ranch in Grand Teton National Park this week, with the main event slated for Thursday from 4 p.m. to sundown. Protection of the bison, the focus of this year’s festivities, meshes nicely with the cause of the local event’s sponsor, the Buffalo Field Campaign. “We’re honoring the sacred bison in Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks,” Dustin Jules, the event coordinator, said. “Jackson Hole is hosting, and the locals are invited to come out and participate.” A four-day ceremony that culminates on the summer solstice, World Peace and Prayer features a sacred fire that will be stoked throughout the event. More than 200 people are expected to attend when the ranch gates open to the public Thursday. The event was founded by Lakota Chief Arvol Looking Horse, the 19thgeneration keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe. Looking Horse designed the day of peace to change its tune every year. Befitting its Lakota roots, this year’s staging hopes to draw a strong

“We’re honoring the sacred bison in Grand Teton and Yellowstone national parks.” – Dustin Jules peace and prayer day coordinator

“All faiths, all nations, one prayer,” Watsabaugh said. “We’ve been called by the elders and sacred tradition to gather and hold ceremony in respect to the Earth, and to promote peace on Earth.” In an email urging friends to attend, Watsabaugh said part of the intention of ceremony is for peace and harmony to prevail on the planet. “When like-hearted individuals come together for the same cause, the effect is exponential and cosmically potent,” he wrote. Buffalo Field Campaign and Jules are looking for volunteers and people willing to donate water trucks, RVs for shelter and food. A schedule of events and information on carpooling to Triangle X will be posted at www.wppd2012.

Artlab to break in new downtown studio –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Local artists, Teton Artlab What: Big Haus Studios opening When: 6 to 9 p.m. Friday Where: 160 S. Cache How much: Free Web: –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Katy Niner


he new Teton Artlab studio project shares a lot with the old jail: physically and etymologically. Big House, slang for jail, and Bauhaus, the seminal German arts and crafts movement, combine to coin the name Big Haus Studios at 160 S. Cache. Both tropes suit the Big Haus ethos: a Teton Artlab project that brings 10 creative studios to the 1970s office building beside the long-shuttered former jail. Travis Walker, co-founder of the Artlab, sees Big Haus as a collaboration between artists and the Artlab. On Friday, Artlab invites people to come explore the new site starting at 6 p.m. The event will spill into the parking lot behind the building shared by the old jail and courthouse. Jackson folk/indie rock quintet Elk Attack will perform on the back stoop, garage-band style, and Pica’s Taco Truck will sell food and margaritas. In keeping with the Artlab’s educational mission, Big Haus features shared work spaces: a printmaking

studio downstairs, hallways to hang work, and an upstairs gallery space. During the grand opening Friday, residents’ work will hang on the walls, as well as that of friends of the Artlab, like Craig Spankie. Scottie Craighead, back in town for the summer, will transform the gallery into a woodsy world housing his repurposed furniture mounts, replete with sod on the floor and paper hides on the walls. A silent auction featuring work by Artlab alumni as well as current residents will help raise funds for the Artlab’s Caldera Festival, the concert event scheduled for Aug. 18 featuring Andrew Bird and Sharon Van Etten. Donated works include raven prints by Craighead, a print and painting by Victoria Reynolds, a complete Street Bible by Aaron Wallis and more. Big Haus continues where the Factory Studios left off. In February, Teton Artlab decided to vacate the former candy factory on Greg-

ory Lane, citing a dispute with the landlord over fire-code violations. The artists and entrepreneurs who filled the Factory scrambled to find new studios. Those who could wait for space until April joined Artlab in the Big Haus. Like its predecessor, Big Haus provides subsidized studio and display space for artists; same concept, only slightly less space. To comply with the property’s zoning, Big Haus can only house certain creative disciplines like graphic design, printmaking, painting, sculpting and fiber arts. The new roost’s downtown location is significantly more convenient for client-based businesses like XOWYO paper and press. By being across the street from the Center for the Arts, Big Haus helps to create a creative campus downtown, Walker said. To nurture that, Big Haus is offering printmaking classes. Big Haus will not be the public

Instead, Walker is focusing his time on the residents and cultivating relationships with like-minded creative organizations. He is also busy organizing the inaugural Caldera Festival. While summer will likely see more artist volunteers stopping by, he thinks of Big Haus as a place of creative work. Come winter, he expects to host artist residencies.

New critique class aims for cross-pollination, candor ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Artists What: Critique workshop When: 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays Where: Photography Studio, Art Association How much: Free Web: ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Katy Niner Writers, sculptors, dancers, photographers, actors, painters — all artists, all disciplines are welcome to join Thomas Macker’s new critique class. The only requirements are that participants commit to the concept of candid critique and to the full (free) workshop. Macker has wanted to introduce critiques to Jackson ever since moving from Los Angeles, where he studied photography and media at the Califor-

nia Institute of the Arts. In LA, Macker showed his work to friends and peers. In Jackson, he has found most artists work in isolation. “Not only are artists working in a vacuum by being in Jackson, they are working in a vacuum within Jackson,” Macker said. Macker hopes to change that: starting Tuesday night, he will host weekly salon-style sessions in the photography studio at the Art Association. Every week, two artists will present their work and fellow participants will offer critiques. The free workshop will run for eight weeks through Aug. 14. Depending on how many people sign up, artists will present at least once, ideally twice, over the course of the class. Sign up by calling the Art Association, 733-6379. For the concept to work, Macker feels all participants must commit to showing up to at least six of

the eight sessions. Everyone must contribute, and everyone must be invested in the idea of forging something as a class, Macker said. “The goal of the course is to cross-pollinate and exchange ideas,” Macker wrote in the course description. “However, this course will require rigor and respect from participating artists.” Participants can bring whatever work, in whatever state, they want. “This will be a great opportunity to workshop a new or ongoing body of work or revisit a recently completed project,” Macker wrote. Macker hopes the class grows, with artists’ interest, into a seasonal offering. While participants are not required to present with words, Macker has found the exercise of articulating his art useful. “I want to talk about why the artist feels like the work they are doing is important to them,” he said.

Altamira features variety of artists, mediums ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Altamira artists and guests What: ‘Western Edge: Eight Artists, 26 Select Works’ When: Reception 5:30 to 7:30 Thursday; show hangs through July 3 Where: Altamira Fine Art Web: ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Richard Anderson Altamira Fine Arts hurtles itself into the summer with a group show featuring new work by many of its stalwarts — Donna Howell-Sickles, Dan Namingha, Marshall Noice, Bill Schenck, Theodore Waddell and Logan Hagege — as well as images by guest photographer, former Jackson resident Cameron Neilson. The show, titled “Western Edge: Eight Artists, 26 Select Works,” has been hanging in the gallery since June 13, but the opening takes place during Thursday’s ArtWalk, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The show remains up through July 3. “I’m excited about this gallery work,” said Neilson, who moved from Jackson in 2008 and has called New York City home since. “I still have a lot of clients in Jackson, so I go back and forth three or four times a year, shooting interior design work and architecture and for shops and galleries. “Plus, I’ve been obsessed with Yellowstone, the details of Yellowstone and how things start to looking like images from the air.”

Details reveal whole This fractal phenomenon inspired a series of ultra-close-up images of the national park’s famous thermal features. The chemistry and physics of how water and minerals interact there lead to infinitely intricate forms. Shot with a macro lens, the images could easily be those of island chains, wild shorelines or fjords as pictured by a satellite in space. “You don’t know what you’re looking at until you start paying attention,” Nielson said. The large pictures — 24 by 36 inches is the norm, though one measures 24 by 67 — demand that you step back to take in all of the terrain and geography, but they also pull you in to examine the even more

Hopi artist Dan Namingha’s painting “Horizon and Arroyas” depicts the arid landscape around his home.

Cameron Neilson’s photograph “Artists Paint Pots #1” transforms Yellowstone National Park’s thermal features into a landscape of lakes, forests and deserts.

minute details Nielson captures in high definition. “Beauty is in the details for me,” he said. “Yes, the whole is amazing, but photographing the whole, you don’t see the details, they get lost. But seeing the details, you’re getting a sense for the greater space.” The work of Hopi artist Dan Namingha also invites viewers into an often strange and disorienting world. While Altamira has in the past displayed many of the Santa Fe painter/ sculptor’s landscapes — large canvases of brilliantly colored skies and brittle desert landforms, often reduced to geometry and color fields — this exhibit includes another facet of his output. “Pictograph” consists of three large rectangles — orange, black and orange — bisected by a wide bar bearing a series of symbols. Some, Namingha said, reference ancient Hopi iconography. Stripes of yellow, red, blue and white, for example, stand for north, south, west and east, while black represents the zenith and multi\colored arrangements represent the nadir. A spiral swirling into another spiral symbolizes migration, he said. A circle with an opening in the center suggests “sipapu,” a Hopi word for the navel of the Earth, the place from which mankind emerged

onto this plain of being. “I tend to abstract some of these colors and forms,” Namingha said from his Santa Fe home, “creating something very minimal and simple. Some of the symbolism may come from pictographs and petroglyphs, which tells a story of the people that passed through a particular region at some point and marked their clan symbol or their society symbol on the rock.” Those of us not from the Hopi culture, however, are bound to read our own stories and narratives into the shapes and forms. Namingha seems fine with that, too.

Artists learn from each other “European cultures way back had their symbols that were an important part of their spirituality, even before Christianity stepped in,” he said. “Also, European artists were inspired by indigenous people and the symbolism indigenous people had, and they incorporated some of that into their work.” Likewise, native people have been inspired by European artists and techniques and symbols. “So in other words, it comes full circle,” he said. “We’ve all learned from one another.” Another guest artist showing at

“Western Edge” will be Ed Mell. “We don’t represent him,” said gallery associate Katherine Harrington, “but we’d love to.” Two large Mell canvases — “Open Valley” and “Moving Storm” — meld Art Deco angularity with the native Arizonian’s sense of space and dramatic lighting. Bold colors, bold forms and a bold juxtaposition of terrestrial landforms with the stylized chaos of the atmosphere above feel both futuristic and retro. The other artists in this group show are much loved and respected in Teton art circles as well. With her cowgirl optimism and friendly animal iconography, Donna Howell-Sickles has been a strong seller in Jackson for decades. Montanan Marshall Noice continues to depict the woods and hills in neon tones, though “Sunrise Above the Snake” is tranquil and subdued next to his more vivid works. Logan Maxwell Hagege channels Maynard Dixon but also, in “Primaries” — a large painting of three Indians on horseback milling about on the canvas — is almost cubist, with its multiple perspectives on the figures. Bill Schenck has a luscious panoramic painting of red rock features beneath the gathering twilight, while Theodore Waddell’s works that blend abstract expressionism with pictographic iconography perhaps demonstrate what Namingha means by native people and European people exchanging ideas and techniques.

Trailside Galleries welcomes new work for summer –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Trailside Galleries’ artists What: “High Country Summer” show and Robert Moore Showcase When: Reception 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday; hangs through June. Where: Trailside Gallery How much: Free admission Web: –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Katy Niner

Robert Moore has been represented by Trailside Galleries for 35 years. He is best known for paintings of trees and forests.

Befitting the visual abundance of summer, Trailside Galleries opens the high season with a show featuring new work by all of its artists. “High Country Summer” reflects the diversity Trailside strives for in its stable of artists. Impressionist paintings, landscapes, wildlife, figurative work and traditional Western art all find a home in the gallery, a mainstay of the Western art market. The group show, feted during the ArtWalk from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, will hang until the end of June. “The interesting thing for us and our collectors is that there is quite a variety of

styles, subject matter and prices,” Maryvonne Leshe, Trailside’s managing partner, said. From the Native American subjects of Z.S. Liang to the ranching scenes of Richard Thomas, “High Country Summer” spans a range of Western subject matter and includes references to the historical and contemporary American West. Even with its major wildlife show on the horizon in September, Trailside will debut several new pieces by wildlife artists, including a brand-new elk sculpture by Sherry Sanders. Trailside also welcomes new talent this summer. British artist Ian Ramsay creates enchanting watercolor paintings of Chinatown in San Francisco or tugboats moored in Oregon. Also new to Trailside, Jeff Segler paints modern-day cowboys at rodeos or on cattle drives. In tandem with “High Country Summer,” Trailside is showcasing new paintings by Robert Moore. Trailside has represented

Moore for 35 years. Leshe remembers her first meeting with the soft-spoken 20-year-old (he brought his mother along). Since, the Idaho native has become a favorite with Trailside’s clients, and the gallery often begins summer by spotlighting his new work. Best known for his oil paintings of trees and forests, Moore has explored a style spectrum ranging from representational to impressionist and abstract. Ever painterly, he builds his color-rich and lightfilled compositions through thick, visible brushstrokes. The Trailside showcase celebrates the breadth of his work, a range of sizes, seasons and subjects. Born, raised and still rooted in the Snake River Basin of south-central Idaho, Moore has led a quiet, contemplative life immersed in nature and punctuated by stints at school, including the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif., and trips abroad.

Wilcox shows pensive bronze, other new works –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Sculptors and painters What: ‘Spring into Summer’ show When: Reception 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday Where: Wilcox Gallery on Town Square How much: Free admission Web: –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Jennifer Dorsey The ellipses in the title of Blair Buswell’s award-winning bronze of a Plains Indian man aren’t there for decorative purposes. They’re an invitation from the Utah sculptor to enter a state of mind. The man in the sculpture Buswell calls “How Many More …” is of a certain age, and his facial expression and the way he is clasping himself telegraph that something is weighing on him. But what? Is he wondering how many more hard winters lie ahead? Is he contemplating the toll of more battles with neighboring tribes? Do wagon trains that have carried white settlers into his homeland make him worry still others might be on their way? “I was trying to capture the feeling of a Plains Indian in thought,” said Buswell. “You fill in the blanks.” The lifesize sculpture is in the “Spring into Summer” show at Wilcox Gallery’s Town Square location, 110 Center St. The exhibition of new works by most of the gallery’s 40-some artists will open with a reception from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, the night of the downtown ArtWalk. A number of artists will attend Thursday’s opening. While in town, they will be entertained by the familyowned gallery with a whitewater rafting trip and an evening with the Bar J Wranglers. “This show is about freshness,” gallery owner and founding artist Jim Wilcox said in a press release. “New artwork freshens the gallery as well as spring rains and runoff freshen this

gorgeous valley, and usually late June is the greenest this valley gets. Timing couldn’t be better.” Wilcox, known for his impressionistic landscapes, will have new pieces in the show, as will his fellow Prix de West winner Tom Browning, reknowned for his cowboy and wildlife scenes. Also in the show is Tiffany Stevenson, a Utah wildlife painter who is not only the youngest artist at Wilcox by 17 years, but also one of the newest on the gallery’s roster. She hit the ground running, selling 20 paintings in her first year there. “She’s doing incredible work,” said gallery director Jeff Wilcox, one of two of Jim Wilcox’s sons working at the gallery. “She’s passionate about it and just works her tail off.” Just as “how many more?” is an open question posed by Buswell’s bronze, it will be up to gallery visitors to decide for themselves which works are the highlights of the show. Undoubtedly, the sculpture will be one. Standing about 4 feet tall, it’s an enlargement of a 14-inch, limited-edition – Blair Buswell piece Buswell did sculptor in 1996 that sold out in 14 months. From the lines of the man’s face to the details of his feather headdress, “you can capture more on a larger scale,” Buswell said. In August, the bronze won the Gold Medal and People’s Choice Award at the National Sculpture Society’s 79th annual show at Brookgreen Gardens, S.C. During the Northwest Rendezvous in Helena, Mont., also in August, it received the Award of Merit, the Joe Halko Heritage Award and the People’s Choice Award for best sculpture. Last June, it captured the James Earle Frazer Sculpture Award at the 2011 Prix de West show in Oklahoma City. The sculpture at Wilcox, No. 5 in a limited edition of 22, has already sold, but it will be on view throughout the “Spring into Summer” show to provoke thought and spark conversation. “It’s just a powerful, powerful piece,” Jeff Wilcox said.

“I was trying to capture the feeling of a Plains Indian in thought. You fill in the blanks.”



This sculpture by Blair Buswell has won a half-dozen major awards in the past year. The 4-foot-tall bronze can be seen in “Spring into Summer,” a show of new works by Wilcox Gallery artists.

Jennifer Tennican’s new documentary, “The Stagecoach Bar: An American Crossroads,” will premiere June 27 at the Center for the Arts.

errik Hufsmith is a quintessential Stagecoach Bar character: He grew up in Jackson, tried to be a hippie but failed, moved to Teton Valley, Idaho, bought a farm, now “raises lentils, ” and every Sunday he crosses Teton Pass to play electric guitar in the Stagecoach Band. Hufsmith is the band’s closest thing to a true local, fellow bandmate Christine Langdon said. Fittingly, he cues the opening of Jackson filmmaker Jennifer Tennican’s documentary, “The Stagecoach Bar: An American Crossroads.” Two years in the making, the hourlong film premieres June 27 with the community that made it possible. Befitting the subject, a party will follow the screening. More than story that solely focuses on a saloon, the documentary traces the valley’s defining historic and contemporary currents through the prism of the personalities found at the Stagecoach. Cowboys, dudes, old-timers, dancers, hippies, hipsters, second-home owners — Tennican features them all. She hopes the film seeds discussions on the sweep of top-

ics covered, from identity to inequity and sobriety. “The West has never been a place for churchgoers,” historian Andrew Gulliford says on camera. “The Episcopalian priests in Wyoming did everything they could, and it sort of took, but the West is an unchurched place. So, where do you go to connect? You go to the bar.” To chronicle the Coach, Tennican wove archival footage and photography with new interviews she conducted and fresh film she took. The narrative unfolds with people’s memories — in saddles, on barstools, on the dancing floor. Rob Cheek recalls sidling up to the bar as a young teenager and ordering a whiskey and water on his way to the rodeo chutes. To his surprise, the bartender accepted his 50 cents. In the early days, the Stagecoach serviced the adjacent rodeo arena, the site where dudes, cowboys and genders converged. Come winter, it was an antidote to long episodes of isolation. The band began playing in February 1969, several years after the rodeo left. In the film, as in life, music is a river running through it all. Tunes eased tensions between old-timers and the 1960s hatch of hippies. “We were all dancing together, so somehow, we all made up,” says one of the newcomers, Dail Barbour, though it did take a while for the hippies to become accepted as part of the valley tapestry. “A place like the Stagecoach offers

Locally grown Jennifer Tennican takes pride in the fact that “The Stagecoach Bar: An American Crossroads” was done locally, thanks to the brave backing of the Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum. Many local talents played a part. Rebecca Huntington co-wrote it with her, and Trask McFarland was editor. Marni Productions enabled post-production, and Eric Hansen did the sound. Melinda Binks stood behind the camera (Tennican, too). Ben Winship and select members of the Stagecoach Band offered their musical genius, and the bar’s owners — Rod Everett, Pete Cook and Bill Field — gave Tennican free rein and access.

She delights in the magical moments — like centenarian George Green closing down the place by dancing on the bar to “Keep on the Sunny Side of Life” — as well as bigger themes like surviving as a musician by way of affordable housing. Or trying to stay sober when a bar serves as community hub. Patiently, the film paints the Coach

as an enduring symbol — and site — of the Teton melting pot. “The best friends we have in the world, we met most of them at the coach,” said Bill Nash, who had never stepped foot inside a bar before moving to the valley 30 years ago. Now, he is a Sunday service stalwart. Now, as then, the Coach welcomes all to roost. “I always tell people to go to the Coach when they move here,” Barbour said. “All those good vibes are just holding it up.”

By Katy Niner The mikoshi have spent the week journeying all over the valley, reaching out to the elemental spirits they were designed to shelter. Forrest McCarthy trekked the Earth mikoshi to the Enclosure on the Grand. Aaron Pruzan of Rendezvous River Sports floated the Water mikoshi from Slide Lake down the Gros Ventre River. Matt Poluga of Hoback Sports cycled the Air mikoshi from the outdoor Sculpture Trail celebration at the National Museum of Wildlife Art. At 5:30 p.m. today, the mikoshi and the spirits they have gathered will process from the Center for the Arts to the Town Square, signaling the start of the Japanese-style Street Fair and Fire Ceremony, the blazing finale to the Fire Festival. A celebration of gratitude, the Fire Festival aims to thank not only the natural world but also the volunteer firefighters in the valley, said Candra Day of Vista 360, who borrowed the 600-year-old tradition from Fujiyoshida, Japan, and brought it to Jackson in 2007. To cue tonight’s party, Taiko Project, a taiko drumming troupe from Los Angeles, will take to the top of Snow King and send their percussive signals out across the valley. People will be positioned at various locations — around town and even as far away as Grand Teton National Park — to determine where the beats travel. The mountaintop event, Taiko in the Landscape, begins at 5 p.m.

Miette Sanchez helps launch the Jackson Hole Fire Festival on Thursday, joining a procession of cyclists hauling a Japanese-style mikoshi shrine from the National Museum of Wildlife Art down the new pathway to the Center for the Arts. The festival concludes this evening on Town Square.

Taiko Project echoes the creative spirit of the Teton festival. In much the same way that the Jackson Hole Fire Festival has adapted the centuriesold Japanese tradition, Taiko Project has taken a traditional form of Japanese drumming and adapted it to LA, Amanda Flosbach, the festival’s communications and partner liaison, said. The troupe will perform throughout the evening — at 6:30, 7:30 and 9:15 p.m. — on a stage set up on the square. Beyond drums, the Street Fair will ignite all kinds of creative festivities, including booths devoted to Japanese artistic traditions like flower arranging and calligraphy. A teahouse will stage tea ceremonies. Local chefs will serve Japaneseinspired fare from rice balls to bento boxes, miso corn to mini cupcakes,

yakitori and yaki soba. Children’s games will pepper the square, and chalk art — organized by Teton County Library — will decorate the pavement on East Deloney. Riot Act Inc. will conduct a stage combat demonstration, and the Wyoming Karate Club will perform. At 8 p.m. the mikoshi will circle the square on the backs of burly Jacksonites, then torches will be lit for the Fire Ceremony. The Jazz Foundation of Jackson Hole will close the evening with big band music. Like the Fujiyoshida Fire Festival, the Teton adaptation aims to involve the whole community. Tonight’s schedule will likely do just that, enticing all to celebrate in whatever way they enjoy most.

For a young boy, a paddle opens a portal on adventure and emotion. “Farewell to Huckleberry,” by contemporary Japanese playwright Narui Yutaka, will be read in translation today outdoors on the Center for the Arts lawn. The play reading, presented by Off Square Theatre Company and produced by Natalia Duncan in collaboration with the Jackson Hole Fire Festival, runs from 1 to 2 p.m. People are encouraged to bring picnic blankets and lunches. The reading, part of Off Square’s Page-to-Stage series, is free for Off Square members or a $5 suggested donation for nonmembers. A family-friendly event, it is recommended for children ages 9 and older. The staged reading will be followed by a talkback with guest director Tara Rodman and Kyoko Yoshida of the U.S./ Japan Cultural Trade Network, as well as the cast: Jeff Bratz, Lucas Hakoshima, Jackie VanZanten, Brian Van Hatten, Molly Moon Thorn, Emma Detrick, Craig Kirkpatrick and Thomas Macker. Rodman, a doctoral candidate in theatre and drama at Northwestern University, is examining the circulation of modernist theatre and performance among Japan, Europe and the U.S. between 1885 and 1937. Before beginning her doctoral studies, she performed with the American Mime Repertory Theatre Company in New York City and studied Noh theatre in Tokyo.

The Jackson Hole Wine Auction raises $500,000 to $750,000 a year for the Grand Teton Music Festival’s outreach programs.

Columnist travels the world drinking wine Amazing tastes come from all over, says JH Wine Auction master of ceremonies.

Prime vintage

By Richard Anderson There’s more to wine than what you get in the glass, says Matt Kramer, longtime columnist for Wine Spectator and master of ceremonies for this year’s Jackson Hole Wine Auction. “There’s a whole culture involved,” he said. “Why a wine tastes the way it does is not a mechanical process. It’s not just soil plus sun plus grape plus winemaking equals the wine.” For 35 years, Kramer has been flying all over the world exploring the culture, the art and the mystery of winemaking and writing about it for such publications as The Oregonian, the LA Times and The New York Sun. And he’s not exaggerating when he says all over the world: Besides the traditional wine centers of Europe and California, he’s visited Australia and New Zealand, Chile and Argentina, Spain and Hungary. “You can’t beat the poetry of travel and being on the spot to ‘understand’ wine,” he said. That said, most people can tell OK wine apart from great wine. “If I gave you, let’s say, six wines, and I knew that four of those six were really good and two were mediocre, nine out of 10 people would be able to identify the four really good ones,” he said. “The only difference between me and them is I can tell you why those four are good. … It’s just a function of experience and exposure and lots of teachers over many years.” At two events during this year’s Jackson Hole Wine Auction — the premiere tasting at 5 p.m. Thursday at the Four Seasons Resort and the California Boutique Wineries tasting at 1 p.m. Saturday at Il Villaggio Osteria — Kramer will offer patrons some of that experience and exposure. “I’ve taught a lot of wine-tasting classes over the years,” he said, “and the majority of them are to people who insisted they knew absolutely nothing about wine. What I’ve learned is that you have to convey this information in a way that makes sense to them.”

Women, he said, are far better tasters than men. “Give me a class of a dozen women who profess to know nothing, and I can take them three times farther than a dozen men.” He said it’s because most women are raised understanding concepts like nuance and finesse. They grew up reading fashion magazines, talking to each other and being instructed about what goes with what. “If I say in a wine-tasting class, ‘There is a lot of nuance to this wine,’ 99 percent [of women] won’t have any problem with the word ‘nuance’ … but a lot of guys literally do not know the meaning of the word nuance or finesse.” For guys who are “let’s say, pretty conventional,” he said, he might use an analogy of a basketball player and how, as he comes in for a layup, the ball rolls off his fingertips and into the basket, making it look easy. “I’ll say, ‘That’s finesse,’ and they’ll say, ‘Ah, got it!’” In Asia, Kramer has no problem explaining the concept of terroir — what he calls “somewhereness,” the power of the land to create a distinctive voice — because Asian cultures have 5,000 years of agricultural experience underlying them. “But talk to an average urbanite who has never grown a plot of tomatoes over three seasons in his life, and

The Grand Teton Music Festival invites lovers of fine wine and fine music on a California Road Trip as it embarks on its 18th annual Jackson Hole Wine Auction. Golden State vintners like Ackerman Family Vineyards, Cakebread Cellars and Quintessa will share their best labels and pour generously during the event’s signature private dinners, gala feast and other tastings and events. “By the time we finish, we’ll probably reach every wine region of California,” said Chip Scott, the music festival’s director of special events. The three-day festival of wine and food starts Thursday with a wine tasting at Four Seasons Resort and the popular “Taste of Jackson Hole” event at Couloir, atop the Bridger Gondola at Teton Village. The $100-a-ticket “Taste” is the most affordable way to participate, with more than a dozen vineyards and wineries partnering with local restaurants like Nikai, Il Villaggio Osteria, Snake River Grill and The Kitchen. Friday is a big day full of new events. After the silent auction preview in the morning, a Food and Fashion Lunch and Trunk Show will run noon to 3 p.m. in the Alpine Barn at Shooting Star, hosted by Goodie 2 Shoes and offering glasses poured by the Women of Wine and food by Ben Ford of Los Angeles’ Ford’s Filling Station. Afterward, a scotch and cigar tasting will take place on the Shooting Star course with a Quarter Million Dollar Hole-in-

terroir is an abstraction. “We all have our particular life experience,” he said. “Look how difficult it was for people of a certain generation to understand how great the Beatles were. ... We were connoisseurs.” On the other hand, it took him years to understand his parents’ generation’s reverence for Frank Sinatra. In wine, as in music, a lifetime of exposure means Kramer is more aware than most people of what goes into making a good bottle and how to get the most out of drinking it. As the world of winemaking grows exponentially around the globe — wine is grown in all 50 of the United States, he said — he finds himself stretched to the limit trying to keep up. In the end, he admitted, even he can’t keep up. “You try, and if pushed you pretend, but it’s impossible. Am I aware more than most people? I damn well ought to be. … If I’m doing my job correctly,

One Challenge up for grabs. “If someone hits one, we write them a check for $250,000,” Scott said. Private dinners in luxury homes throughout the valley catered by some of the best chefs in America — John Besh of August, in New Orleans, for example, and Toshio Tomita and Ricky Estrellado of Nobu, in New York City — start at 7 p.m. Friday. Saturday brings a tasting of California boutique wineries at 1 p.m. and the grand finale: the Gala Dinner and silent and live auctions at Walk Festival Hall and the Four Seasons. Past gala dinners have featured food stations, each manned by a different star chef. In response to patron feedback, however, this year’s gala will be a seated, plated dinner. “People are looking forward to the changes,” Scott said. The Jackson Hole Wine Auction raises $500,000 to $750,000 a year, with the proceeds going to fund the music festivals outreach and educational programs like Tune Up, StringFest and the new BandFest. Also, Scott said, over the years, the festival has alternated between multiday events like this year’s and smaller one-day fundraisers. This year, the music festival board decided to continue with the multiday format every year. “We’re thinking of doing an international festival in 2013,” said Scott, who added he’ll start planning for that on Monday.

I will not be surprised that something from New Jersey could be good. “In fact, I have direct experience of not only being surprised but also being able to accept that there are many places in the world that make wine as good or as better than the best wines from the most famous places.” What surprises him more, he said, is how reluctant people are to accept that great wine is not the province of a few well-known, privileged areas. “I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve met people who have said, ‘I don’t really believe that anything is better than the Bordeaux. … It’s so much easier for people to believe that only a handful of places can create great wines, but the 21st-century world of wine puts the lie to that: There are amazing, great wines coming out of Argentina, Chile, Oregon, Washington, Spain, Hungary, New Zealand. … It’s astonishing.”

As a short play, the decades-spanning story unravels in mere minutes. “It tells itself in just the right amount of time,” director Deborah Supowit said. Riot Act’s annual series of shorts features four mini productions. Sometimes a show is just a snapshot of life, Supowit said. It doesn’t need to be longer. “In this particular case, I wouldn’t want to spend more than 17 minutes with these people,” she said. Short plays give the audience a chance to breathe and to digest what they’ve just seen before diving into the next totally different story, said Richele Pitalo, who directs “The Meaning of Things.” While she loves exploring full-length productions, there isn’t the pressure to sustain audiences’ attention with a short. “Some people prefer small bites,” she said. For her, shorts offer the opportunity to be more whimsical. “The Meaning of Things” is about being at a crossroads in life and not being able to take the next step, she said. It’s something that people of all ages can relate to. In a symbolic moment, the characters

worry about what map to use for a trip. Pitalo describes the short’s style as “hyperrealism.” “It’s different and it’s always unexpected, and you are kind of like, ‘Wow, where did that come from?’” she said. “Everything and anything goes, but at the same time, it’s all extremely plausible.” Just because the plays are short, doesn’t mean they lack meaning or a message, said Henry Raynor Williams, director of “A Nice Cup of Tea.” When a husband gets a promotion in his health and safety job, he comes home with suggestions for his wife about things she could do better to be more domestically safety-conscious. The play resonated with Williams, who grew up with a mother who stayed home to raise four kids while his father would work, come home and expect certain things to be done — not taking into account that his wife also had four children to tend to. The message is simple, he said: “Don’t come home like the king of the castle when, honestly, there’s the queen who stands right behind you picking you up.” “All in the Miming,” a play involving a fight with a

Fish biologist Frank Rahel will talk about fisheries management Thursday at AMK Ranch, touching on challenges like invasive species and global warming.

Biologist to revisit days of fishing yore ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Who: Fish biologist Frank Rahel What: ‘A Brief History of Fish Management’ When: 6:30 p.m. Thursday Where: AMK Ranch, Grand Teton National Park How much: Talk free; $5 barbecue at 5:30 p.m. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– By Jennifer Dorsey While anglers might long for the good-old days, fish biologist Frank Rahel says people have been complaining about depleted fish populations since the 1800s. Hence the subtitle of his talk at AMK Ranch: “Fishing Isn’t As Good as It Used to Be, and It Never Was.” At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, the University of Wyoming professor and researcher will give a brief history of inland fisheries management in the U.S., with a focus on Wyoming. He will touch on the modern-day problems of invasive species and climate change, which create challenges far beyond “shortening the time between bites.” “Lake trout are not native to Wyoming, and their introduction to Yellowstone Lake has led to the decline of cutthroat trout, which is the only type of trout that are native to Wyoming,” Rahel said in an email. “Climate change is likely to reduce the amount of coldwater habitat for popular sport fish, because lower-elevation stream reaches will become too warm to support trout in the summer.” Rahel’s interest in aquatic creatures traces back to his boyhood, when he enjoyed fishing because it gave him an opportunity to be out in nature. While other kids got excited about catching the first or biggest fish, he was more interested then, and still is, in how many species he could find. “It’s especially exciting to catch a species that I’ve never seen before,” he said. “It’s akin to a bird watcher adding a new species to their life list.” At UW, he teaches ichthyology and fisheries management and also works in the field. He and his students are doing research in the Front Range on how climate warming might benefit “warm-water” fish. “Such species should expand their range in Wyoming as water becomes warmer,” he said. “Thus, as climate warming continues, trout fishermen may have to adapt to fishing for other species in some of their favorite angling spots.” Rahel said fishing culture dates

back thousands of years to when carp were rased for food in China. Concepts like stocking catchable fish for recreational angling or imposing creel limits, he said, developed in the U.S. in the late 1800s. “Prior to that, you could harvest as many fish as you wanted by whatever means you chose,” he said. “Given that dynamite and traps were routinely used to catch fish, you can understand why there was a need for fisheries management to develop.” Stocking didn’t work, nor did limits on the number or size of fish that could be caught. So, he said, scientists tried habitat management, initially focusing on local areas — adding logs to streams to create cover for fish, for example. That expanded to ecosystem management and looking at how land-use practices like grazing or logging influence fish populations. “Today, fisheries biologists use all of these approaches to manage not just game fish but all of the creatures that live in aquatic habitats,” Rahell said. Thursday’s presentation begins with a 5:30 p.m. barbecue that costs $5 per person. Rahel’s talk is free. To get to AMK, turn west from U.S. Highway 89 onto the spur road toward Leeks Marina. In half a mile, turn right at the UW sign and continue a mile up the road. Park in front of the Johnson Lodge and walk to the Berol Lodge.

Plenty of trails ready for hiking and biking Bridger-Teton National Forest

Backcountry streams have passed their peak levels but are still running a little fast, and the snow line has most likely risen above 9,000 feet. All cleared trails in the backcountry are still subject to downed trees from ongoing windstorms, Bridger-Teton representative Tim Ferris said. Patches of snow can still be found along Pass Ridge, but the route is easily navigable on foot or bike. All Greater Snow King Area trails are open and in good condition for hiking, biking and riding, with possible exceptions at higher altitudes. High School Butte also offers attractive hiking conditions. Hikers are asked to help maintain these areas by staying on established trails. Phillip’s Ridge Trail and Arrow Trail have been cleared of lingering snow patches and opened for riding and biking. Crews are continuing to work toward clearing Black’s Canyon and History Trail, and hope to have them ready by the weekend. Ski Lake Trail remains clear of snow and trees and is open for hiking and riding. Areas around the lake are also clear. Trails in the Gros Ventre area are now snow-free, though Crystal Creek remains tough to cross with swift-moving waters. Trails in the Snake River canyon area are dry and offer good hiking conditions. If you have a trail condition update, email your observation to trailcrew@ You can also Tweet at Friends of Pathways or post your observations on its Facebook page. If you discover a Bridger-Teton trail or road that needs maintenance work, call Tim Ferris at 739-5414 or Linda Merigliano at 739-5428.

Meet and have lunch with the staff and learn about the Summer Rendezvous Series. Thursday Gros Ventre Field Trip. 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Join Lloyd Dorsey of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and longtime local conservationist Louise Lasley for a trip into the vibrant heart of the Gros Ventre mountains. View wildlife and learn about conservation issues in the area. RSVP at Hikers are reminded they must use approved canisters for food storage, which are free at visitor centers. In addition, hikers are advised to never run from bears or drop their packs if charged. As temperatures continue to rise, hikers should monitor their hydration, carry high-energy snacks and load up on sunscreen as they get higher and deeper into the backcountry. Equally important is matching one’s pace to the difficulty of the trek, particularly for lessexperienced hikers. As always, hiking above 9,500 feet or crossing a divide in Grand Teton entails the expectation of encountering snow. Hikers venturing out at these elevations are advised to bring the proper footwear, carry an ice ax and know how to use it. Pets are not allowed on park trails or in the backcountry. For information, call the visitor center at 7393399 or the Jenny Lake Ranger Station at 739-3343.

Trail Talk

Grand Teton National Park

Surprise and Amphitheater lakes are mostly frozen, and consistent snows can be expected after a couple of switchbacks. In general, snow remains above 9,000 feet. Garnet Canyon is mostly dry until the Platforms area, where hikers have generally needed boots, park rangers said. Alpine Roots is in good shape despite traces of snow. Granite Canyon still offers the best overall hiking conditions. Though snow lingers below Marion Lake and its campsites, the area is mostly dry from the lake to the end of the North Fork. Hikers can still expect patchy snows after the first five miles. In the Death Canyon area, patchy snow lingers below Fox Creek Pass. Black and grizzly bears are active. Hikers should never venture out alone and should always make noise to avoid surprising bruins in the backcountry. Gallatin National Forest



John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway Grand Teton National Park



Over the weekend in the Mammoth area, hikers reported a grizzly bear and cub in backcountry campsite 1A3, as well as a black bear and cub within a couple hundred yards of it. The Mammoth side of Sepulcher has been cleared to the ridgeline and Grizzly Lake trailhead to the Holmes trailhead has been cleared. In the Canyon area, the trail from Chittenden Road to Mount Washburn is snow-free, and the entire Mary Mountain trail is open. Hikers also reported a bear on the 7 Mile Hole Trail last weekend. Observation Peak campsite 4P1 is snow-covered. Consequently, the food pole is too low to the ground. Campers should be prepared to hang food without the pole or to use an approved, bearresistant food container. The Little Firehole River in the Old Faithful area is running deep and swift.


A lesser-known Slide Lake is the one in the Bridger Wilderness of the Wind River Mountains. Towering granite peaks mirrored in alpine lakes reward hikers with spectacular views.

Crossing is not recommended, though several fallen trees across the river might be utilized with caution. The upper part of Fairy Creek Trail between Fairy Falls and Mystic Falls has minimal patchy snow. The Lone Star and Howard Eaton Trails are snow-free. Wet and muddy conditions are more common in the Gallatin/West area, where a bear frequenting warning has been posted along Bighorn Pass Trail. No off-trail travel is permitted here, as carcasses have been spotted nearby, and campsite WB1 is closed. The first 4.5 miles of the Black Butte Trail have been cleared of fallen trees. The trail to Crescent Lake still has deep snow. Hikers can expect small patches to Shelf Lake and on the north fork of Specimen Creek after campsite WE4.

Ebert at the Movies

Musical delivers zesty numbers, ho-hum plot


ock of Ages” is a rags-to-riches rock ’n’ roll musical set mostly in a music club on Sunset Strip and winning no prizes for originality. A lot of it is zesty entertainment: There are energetic musical numbers, and several big names (Tom Cruise, Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin) prove they can sing well enough to play the Strip if they lose their day jobs. The leads are Diego Boneta, playing Drew, a bartender in the Strip’s hottest club, and Julianne Hough, as Sherrie, a naive kid from the Midwest. They’re both gifted singers and join the others in doing covers of 1980s rock classics. Of course they also fall in love. Of course they break up because of a tragic misunderstanding. Of course their mistake is repaired and (spoiler!) they’re back together at the end. Has ever a romance in a musical been otherwise? They’re sweet and likable, but for me the better story involves the fate of the club, the Bourbon Room. Dennis Dupree (Alec Baldwin), its owner, is desperate because he owes back taxes and will have to close the doors at any moment. His only confidante is a weathered rock-and-roller named Lonny (Russell Brand), whose prima-

ry function is to lean over him during phone calls and frantically tell him what to say. The person on the other end of the line is usually a venal music manager named Paul Gill (Paul Giamatti), who claims he will save the club by supplying his legendary client Stacee Jaxx (Tom Cruise) for a onenight farewell concert. If you’re tracking those names, you’re perhaps impressed. Adam Shankman’s “Rock of Ages” not only has a high-profile cast, but the actors never seem to be slumming. They play their roles with great intensity and earnestness, which is really the only way to do satire. There isn’t an original idea in sight in the screenplay by Justin Theroux, Chris D’Arienzo and Allan Loeb, based on a Broadway hit. Even the songs are oldies. And that’s OK, because the actors are having a lot of fun, and the production values of the musical numbers are slick and high-spirited. The only problem is that the plot meanders when nobody is singing. In a movie where all the stars except the leads are essentially satirizing themselves, Tom Cruise is the most merciless on himself. Stacee Jaxx has such a big ego that when he’s interviewed by a Rolling Stone reporter (Malin Akerman), he’s so narcissistically seductive he almost seduces himself. Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin and Russell Brand have a big scene I’ll bet neither one saw in his future. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Roger Ebert reviews new movies as they hit the screen.

ith more than 60 years in the telecommunications business, Silver Star Communications is the leading provider of communications, broadband, wireline and wireless services in eastern Idaho and northwestern Wyoming. Headquartered in Thayne with locations in Jackson and Alpine as well as in Driggs and Soda Springs, Idaho, the company knows the terrain. “We provide an array of communication services, from a cellular plan to Control 4 energy management systems, which control everything in your home or business — from lighting, thermostats, blinds and sprinklers to your security system — all from your smartphone,” said Liz Acosta, business account manager. What sets Silver Star apart is its ability to operate in the area’s majestic, albeit challenging, terrain. Mountains, canyons, rivers and even the climate all pose challenges in connecting the rural communities of the area. Wireless services offered include national plans, a variety of 3G and other phone options and unparalleled local coverage designed with the region’s unique geography in mind. “Aside from having full voice coverage over Teton Pass, I can actually carry Pandora three-fourths of the way,” Acosta said. “This is our commitment to providing superior local service and coverage. We also have partnerships with the larger carriers to guarantee your coverage nationwide.” While wireless service might be the first thing that comes to mind with the Silver Star name, it’s not the only service the company provides. Silver Star also offers highquality phone systems that can serve the needs of large or small companies. “We know phones, and we know phone systems,” Acosta said. “We are a one-stop communications company that can service

Beyond phones, Silver Star specializes in Internet and broadband circuits, the backbone of most business operations and networks. With a robust fiber-optic network, businesses that use Silver Star are able to operate on a global basis from this corner of Wyoming. The company also offers networking and computer support, with a team that can configure your network or act as back-up to an existing IT team. Finally, the company offers automation systems that make it possible for virtually anything in the office to work together, from lights to thermostats, televisions to projectors, sound systems to security systems and monitoring and more.

ick Czesnakowicz’s new wife, Abby, wouldn’t leave Jackson Hole. So the valley now has a new expert in window coverings and heating, cooling and lighting control. In 2000, Czesnakowicz’s father, Bob, founded Shades To You in Orlando, Fla. Nick worked there over the summer when he was in college. After graduation, he started at the family business full time. When he and Abby got married, he brought the line of window treatments to Jackson Hole. Czesnakowicz’s sister, Kate, moved out handle the marketing, making it a true family business. Custom Concepts doesn’t just sell Shades To You but also Hunter Douglas and Lutron. “We think Shades To You is a great product and great value,” Czesnakowicz said. “It doesn’t have the name brand mark-up, so we can be really competitive. We still like to offer clients other options though.” The company also motorizes blinds, whether new or existing. Custom Concepts uses Somfy Motors. “There’s really no limit,” Czesnakowicz said. “When we’re retrofitting something, a kink might come up, but we’re really good at problem solving. Usually, we can get pretty much any shade or blind motorized.” Custom Concepts can also design a remote home control system. “These allow you to control your home’s heating, cooling, shades and lighting from anywhere in the world as long as you have an Internet connection,” Czesnakowicz said. “You can use your cellphone or iPad to turn the heat up or down.” These home control systems can also be programmed with a variety of themes and schedules. “Maybe you want all the shades to go down at a certain time and have the bedroom light to come on at the same time. It can be programmed to do that,” Czesnakowicz said. An additional service Custom Concepts offers is artistic finishes. Abby has a master’s degree in art and education and has been doing faux finishing, murals and painting in the area for eight years. “We like to give clients the ability to reuse existing pieces — cabinets, furniture, doors — by refinishing them rather than replacing them,” Czesnakowicz said. “Abby can rework your existing kitchen cabinets so that it looks like you’ve got a whole new kitchen … and you’ve done it without waste.” Samples of Abby’s faux finishes as well as of several brands of blinds, shades and lighting are on display at Custom Concept’s showroom on Elk Avenue. The showroom is open by appointment only. “While we keep a showroom, most of the time we bring samples to clients,” Czesnakowicz said. “It is easier to pick out colors and imagine how things will look in your home when you’re actually in your home.” — Dina Mishev

Since opening a year ago, Dolce has added to its offerings of frozen yogurts and pastries an extensive menu of gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches and coffee roasted while you watch.

160 N. Cache 200-6071 ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


oasted-to-order organic coffee, gourmet grilled cheese, organic frozen yogurt, coffee drinks, a pastry chef on staff, and open daily from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Just coming up on its first anniversary, Dolce, next to Merry Piglets, has hit its stride. “What wasn’t someone else already doing?” That’s what Joe Rice, Dolce’s founder and owner (he also owns Merry Piglets, Ignight and Sidewinders), asked himself as he was thinking about what exactly his newest eatery would serve. When Dolce opened last summer, it was the only place in town doing fresh-roasted coffee and organic frozen yogurt. It also did desserts and coffee drinks. And, perhaps most significantly, it was open late (by Jackson standards, at least). Almost a year later, it’s no longer the only frozen yogurt place in the valley, but it is the only one serving organic frozen yogurt, and it’s still the only place you can have a pound of coffee roasted while you wait. It’s also the only place in the valley serving gourmet grilled cheese. “People kept asking for real food,” Rice said. Late this past winter, after again thinking about what Jackson didn’t already have, he decided Dolce would do gourmet grilled cheese. There are 10 sandwiches on the menu using a range of breads, cheeses and additional ingredients. The Granny is sharp cheddar cheese, apple-smoked bacon, tomato and grilled onions on your choice of bread. The Thanksgiving is Munster cheese, cranberry sauce, natural smoked turkey and arugula on French bread. You can add an egg to any sandwich for no additional cost. “These sandwiches are just as good for breakfast as for lunch or dinner,” Rice said. And of course there’s tomato soup as well. Dolce started out as a dessert cafe, and even though there’s now “real food” on the menu, it still excels at sweets. Its on-staff pastry chef, Malorie Harris, makes the best Whoopie pies in town along with cookies, brownies, hand-held fruit pies and cakes. (Harris does the desserts at all of Rice’s restaurants.) Then there’s the coffee. “I’m a coffee freak,” Rice said. That shows from the quality of beans he has picked to use — organic and from all over the world — to how the baristas have been trained. The air-roasting machine can roast a pound of beans in about 10 minutes. A pound of fresh-roasted coffee — and it is a true pound; because there is some weight lost during the roasting process, staff starts each one-pound roast with 1.2 pounds of beans — costs between $12.99 and $14.99. “You can’t get a fresher roast than here,” Rice said. — Dina Mishev

ince Inversion Yoga opened in 2010, owner Louise Sanseau has developed her business into a one-stop health and wellness studio for Jackson Hole. While offering a wide range of yoga classes, Sanseau also collaborates with other professionals to house under one roof a juice bar, nutrition consultations, private and semiprivate yoga sessions, meditation groups, aikido classes and, soon, yoga teacher trainings and study groups. Carol Mann, who leads free heart-centered meditations weekly at Inversion, helped Sanseau clarify her business ethos “to collaborate, rather than compete.” Sanseau encourages the growth of other small businesses alongside Inversion to make a healthy lifestyle accessible to anyone and everyone. Jessica Vandenbroeke, health and nutrition coach, is renting a space at Inversion for her business, Healthy Being. She will soon be selling fresh juice and offering nutrition consultations. Ariel Mann, a yoga therapist and personal trainer, is renting a space as well to provide private and semiprivate yoga sessions through her business, JH Wellness. “It’s this nice relationship,” Mann said, “where I’m referring people to group classes with Inversion, and Inversion refers people to me for private lessons.” As for group yoga classes provided by Inversion teachers, the studio now has something for just about everyone. The challenge and benefits of Hot Yoga and the fun and excellent crosstraining of Vinyasa classes continue to bring beginners into the studio and get them hooked on yoga. Those looking for a traditional practice pour into Ashtanga classes. Kundalini classes attract all ages and body types to awaken dormant energy. Maui yoga, a new class, fuses Ashtanga and Iyengar to restore and heal. Restorative yoga offers the perfect balance to the overactive and exhausted body. Pure Flow with Weights combines weight training with yoga postures to tone muscle. Pure Flow with Barre is an intense, effective workout that uses a bar to build strength and tone the body. And Prana Flow Pregnancy offers not only a safe yoga practice but also a place to gather for support during a time of great physical transformation. “While we try to make yoga accessible and fun for everyone,” Sanseau said, “we uphold the value of the yoga lineage, and we are not looking to create a new form of yoga or brand any style as our own.” In February, Sanseau took her vision for yoga and health collaboration and moved it over the pass into Idaho. Inversion Yoga’s new Driggs location partners with Dreamchasers, Jay and Lisa Batchen’s company that provides personalized training and fitness classes. Classes in Driggs include Hot Yoga, Vinyasa and Restorative. “People in Driggs have been wanting Hot Yoga for a long time,” Sanseau said. “They are loyal and devout.” The new studio hosts a growing number of people who commute to Jackson from Idaho, but also a large number who live and work in Driggs. ”Yoga can help you wherever you are in an infinite number of ways,” Sanseau said. ”Our goal is to make it accessible to everyone.” A summer pass of unlimited yoga, lasting from June 1 to Aug. 31, costs $255. For more prices or to sign up for yoga classes at either Inversion location, go to or walk in for a visit. — Benjamin Graham

Pizzeria Caldera owner Chris Hansen makes Napolitanastyle pizzas in a stone-hearth oven. The crusts are chewy and crisp, the toppings fresh and out of the ordinary.

Teton Sports Club on the west bank offers a wide range of fitness and equipment options, including the only CrossFit training center in the region.

Marti Mason and Kim Mellick of Family First Health are nurse practitioners with a wide range of expertise, offering health care to women, men and children of all ages.

fter being in business for barely three months, Pizzeria Caldera garnered a silver ranking for Best Pizza in JHWeekly’s 2012 annual readers poll. You can bet Pizzeria Caldera owner Chris Hansen will be aiming for gold next year. And he’s willing to bet that after one bite of his pie you’ll be voting that direction. “My wife and I moved to Jackson from Portland, Ore., 15 years ago,” Hansen said. “We missed the culinary experiences you find in a city. In particular, I missed good, rustic bread, so I started baking my own. That led to pizza dough and, well, here we are.” Pizzeria Caldera opened its doors Dec. 16, 2011, and features Napolitana-style, stone-hearth oven-baked pizzas. A family-friendly restaurant just off Town Square, Pizzeria Caldera is open for lunch and dinner. The menu revolves around 12-inch artisanal pizzas but also includes slices at lunch, appetizers, salads, wine, local and regional microbrews and dessert. In the summertime, you can sit out on the front deck overlooking the square and be above the crowd but still part of the scene. The restaurant’s name encompasses a variety of inspirations: It acknowledges the Yellowstone Caldera, pays homage to the volcanos Hansen grew up skiing on in the Pacific Northwest and pays tribute to Mount Vesuvius and Naples in Italy, the birthplace of pizza — at least according to Hansen’s reckoning. “Most people believe Naples is where pizza began,” Hansen said. “To be a certified ‘Verace Napoletana’ pizzeria, you need to meet some pretty specific requirements.”  That means using high-gluten flour, San Marzano tomatoes and extra-virgin olive oil imported from Italy, and cooking the pizzas in a wood-fired oven “made from the sands of Mount Vesuvius,” Hansen jokingly added.  “Some American pizzerias have chosen to go to this extent, but that’s a bit beyond what we wanted to do,” he said. “But we believe in the foundation of the Verace Napoletana style, the essence of which is doing things locally. So as much as we can, we use local and fresh ingredients and simple recipes. Our focus is on quality pizzas.” Pizzeria Caldera heats its stone-hearth oven to 550 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit to bake its pizzas, resulting in a crispy yet chewy crust that has lots of people saying the restaurant has the best in town. A quick glance at some of the pizzeria’s Internet reviews brings up many accolades about the crust. Top it off with a variety of out-of-the-ordinary, Italian-inspired combinations of ingredients and sauces, and you’ve got a delicious pizza.  Hansen is not only the owner of Pizzeria Caldera, he is also the pizzaiolo, and his wife, Miga Rossetti, is heavily involved. Rossetti is Italian, and her family hails from the old country, so she and Hansen have spent a lot of time traveling in Italy for inspiration for new ideas and new recipes to bring back to Jackson.  For information, visit —Molly Absolon

Teton Sports Club


eton Sports Club is the only place in Jackson Hole that offers CrossFit training, an increasingly popular strength and conditioning program that uses short, intense workouts to improve overall fitness. “This community is so active,” Teton Sports Club owner Ryan Hudson said, “I couldn’t believe there wasn’t a CrossFit in the area when I moved here.” Hudson is a level two certified CrossFit coach, the only one in Wyoming or Idaho and one of only 300 worldwide. Over the last year, he has turned CrossFit Jackson Hole into the region’s premier center for CrossFit training. While the CrossFit program is reason enough to drive out to Teton Sports Club, near the Aspens on Moose-Wilson Road, the 10,000-square-foot facility also offers a wide range of fitness equipment and programs — including TRX, boot camp, mobility, personal training, yoga and Pilates — as well as a variety of health and wellness expertise. The club also now has massage therapists, physical therapists, dietary experts, acupuncturists and a smoothie bar. And it’s home to a heated outdoor pool as well as hot tubs, dry saunas and four outdoor tennis courts. Truly everything under one roof. Hudson’s aspirations weren’t always as large as Teton Sports Club is today. When he and his wife moved to Jackson Hole, Hudson began leading CrossFit training classes in a 1,000-square-foot room at Osprey Landing. When the previous owners of Teton Sports Club put their business up for sale, Hudson saw an opportunity to combine his passion for fitness and entrepreneurship. He had previously owned and operated fitness gyms in his native Oregon and was the first to open a CrossFit gym in the central part of his home state. His business quickly expanded into eight gyms throughout central Oregon. Hudson studied entrepreneurship with a focus on health club management at the University of Oregon. He holds the Oregon state record for Olympic-style weight lifting and is currently ranked second in the country and fourth in the world for his age group, 35 and up, and his weight class, 170 pounds. Hudson is happy to be in Jackson Hole and is proud of Teton Sports Club’s growth. “We started with no advertising or marketing. Everything was word of mouth,” Hudson said. “We worked one client at a time, and today we’ve got an entire facility dedicated to keeping Jackson Hole fit and healthy.” Hudson has also launched his own private training business, Teton Elite Sports Performance Training — led by two recently relocated world-class coaches — which he said is for high-performance athletes looking to get to the next level in their sport. Teton Elite Sports Performance Training and Olympic Weightlifting Club also calls Teton Sports Club home. Single memberships at Teton Sports Club start as low as $62 a month and $98 a month for couples. A family package costs $119, allowing children to use the pool. A membership with CrossFit Jackson Hole gives members access to all of Teton Sports Club’s facilities as well as three CrossFit training sessions per week. For more, visit — Benjamin Graham

Family First Health PC


arti Mason and Kim Mellick have got you covered with their practice Family First Health PC. Nurse practitioners, they bring a holistic approach to health care, referring to their business as a “whole family” clinic. “We offer comprehensive health care to men, women and children of all ages,” Mason said. That includes everything from annual exams, treatment of injuries and lacerations, acute and chronic illnesses, sports physicals, DOT exams, depression and anxiety treatment, hormone replacement treatment, birth control and STD screening, cosmetic procedures and the Obagi skin care line, among many other services. Mason started the practice in August 2011 and Mellick joined in June 2012. They moved into their new, remodeled space in the St. John’s Professional Office building at 555 E. Broadway, Suite 218, on June 1. Instead of treating just symptoms, Mason and Mellick prefer to treat the cause of illness. “We like to take a bigger picture of the person as a whole,” Mellick said. “It’s not just, ‘You’re sick, here’s an antibiotic,’” Mason said. They take into account all things that contribute to wellness: diet, sleep and stress, among other factors. “We’re really good listeners, and we pick up on the details of a person’s health,” Mellick said. They also have collaborative relationships with other medical professionals in the community and can refer patients if needed. Mason also has an orthopedic background for the past 12 years and assists with orthopedic surgeries at St. John’s Medical Center. Mellick also recently started to do orthopedic work. “We want to provide the best care possible,” Mellick said. Specializing in family health as nurse practitioners means the two have training in everything from pediatrics to geriatrics, Mellick said. There also is an emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention, Mellick said — “catching things with screenings before they turn into full-on disease.” Family First Health is open daily, Monday through Friday, or by appointment on evenings and weekends. The office takes all health insurance plans and will develop payment plans for patients as well. “We don’t turn anybody away,” Mason said. New-patient visits are at least an hour long, she said. “I don’t want them to feel rushed,” Mason said. Mason and Mellick intend to always be available for patients. “In a way, I feel like it’s going back to old school,” she said, with people calling their health care providers and asking questions. Mason and Mellick have a compassionate and caring approach to health care. The most rewarding thing for both family nurse practitioners is seeing their pediatric patients grow up or their adult patients take control of their health. “It’s so rewarding to hear, ‘Thank you for taking the time to listen,’” Mason said. “We hear that a lot.” — Brielle Schaeffer

ig ones, little ones, black ones, white ones. Twelve assorted canines were romping together in an outdoor play run at DogJax. Dogs of all sizes, shapes and colors, barking hello. Mojo, a little black spaniel mix, seemed to be the leader. A bit of a Napoleon type, he bullied the other dogs into playing his way. Most of them seemed happy to join in, although one mastiff acted a little nervous: hanging back, watching, longing to join in, but unsure how. Thomas Mikkelsen, owner of DogJax, Jackson’s doggie day care, boarding and training center, says the mastiff is relatively new and still a bit anxious around the other dogs. But, he says, it won’t take long for her to get comfortable. Doggie socialization is one of the biggest benefits of DogJax, he says. “Dogs are pack animals. They need socialization just like they need food and water,” Mikkelsen says. “Undersocialized dogs lack experience finding their place in the world and can get aggressive or become afraid of other dogs. We have the ability to separate dogs if necessary, but for the most part they want to be in the pack and thrive in that environment. They play hard and expend a lot of energy.” Mikkelsen has been training dogs professionally in Jackson for more than four years and has worked with more than 500 dogs. He has done speaking engagements, volunteering and rescue/shelter work. Through his experience, he recognized the need for dogs to have an outlet for supervised socialization. DogJax opened on South Park Drive on Feb. 15. The new facility, which he owns with his wife, Cora, has three indoor play yards and two large outdoor play areas. DogJax offers doggie day care, overnight boarding and private and group training classes. Boarded animals get their own kennels for meals and at night, but during the day, they get supervised play time with friends. A DogJax employee lives at the facility, so dogs have someone nearby 24 hours a day. And DogJax is open seven days a week with hours that accommodate clients’ schedules. When the weather is good, dogs get a walk on the trails behind the facility, included in the daily rate.

DogJax owners Cora and Thomas Mikkelsen, seen here with canine clients, offer doggie day care, overnight boarding and private and group training classes. Dog owners fill out a questionnaire before dropping off their dogs that asks about everything, from whether pets chase cars to if they have any fears or favorite toys. Dogs get a report card at the end of their stay, outlining what they did that day and rating their behavior between “excellent” and “did not participate” for obedience, friendliness, manners and their ability to play with other dogs. “Our motto is ‘Stay, play, learn,’” Mikkelsen says. “The dogs get to stay in a safe environment, they play all day with dogs and people, and learn about doggie manners and socialization. It’s a great community resource for locals who work long hours and spend long days playing in Jackson Hole, for tourists who are visiting the park or can’t have pets in a hotel, and even for people who want their dog to get socialized. We have got something for everyone and every dog.” — Molly Absolon

Several years ago, the firm also co-curated a yearlong fashion retrospective of Nancy Reagan’s style at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum. The firm has worked with collections belonging to Cher, Michael Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Johnny Cash and Katharine Hepburn. It has produced and designed events, exhibitions and auctions and done interior design around the world. And now it’s headquartered in Jackson. WRJ Home, WRJ Design Associates’ flagship store, opened at 30 King St. in May. That same month, Vogue decreed visiting it should be one of 30 “not to miss” things to do this summer. You need only wander in a few feet past the front door to understand why. The 2,800-square-foot design studio and store are laid out like a home with eclectic, elegant rooms. Included in the showroom are contemporary art pieces and 17th-century European antiques. There are luxury fabrics and furnishings from Loro Piana and Ralph Lauren and works from local craftsmen and artists. There are gifts for $10 and lighting fixtures that cost upwards of several thousand dollars. “The idea is that people will fall in love with the rooms in the showroom and want to live in them,” Rush Jenkins, who owns the business with Klaus Baer, said. “They can’t do that, but they can hire us to do their interiors.” And while WRJ has been called out by publications including Vanity Fair, W magazine, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Women’s Wear Daily and Art and Auction, don’t think it only takes on high-

indergarten readiness” is a term that’s thrown around a lot these days, Tiffany Stolte, educational director at Axis Kids Academy Preschool, stated. “Kindergarten has become a big deal, and kids are thrust into needing to know how to read, how to sit in a chair, stand in a line, etc.,” she said. “I realized it would be great to really help promote that readiness.” Axis Kids Academy Preschool opened inside Axis Gymnastics & Sports Academy in November to do just that. Stolte, who taught kindergarten at Davey Jackson Elementary School for two years, designed the curriculum and program. “We’re a playful, active, academic preschool,” she said. “Kids get the kindergarten readiness they need — math and literacy and social skills — and also get great fine and gross motor skills, too.” The preschool program includes a full gymnastics class, which is an important activity for gross motor development. Axis Kids Academy Preschool runs throughout the year. Its summer hours are the same as during the school year: 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Parents have the option of adding after-care from 3:30 to 5:30, too. “We’re definitely a preschool and not just a day care,” Stolte said. That said, Axis’ preschool is a little more laid back during the summer than during the school year. Days are academic in the morning, and afternoons are often field trips. “We try to have more adventures in the summer,” Stolte said. Stolte, who teaches the preschool classes, has a bachelor’s degree in human development from Boston College and a teaching certificate and master’s in curriculum and instruction from Seattle Pacific University. She has also worked as a reading specialist at Teton Science Schools’ Journeys School. Axis Kids Academy Preschool is licensed for 10 children. Stolte welcomes pottytrained kids age 3 to 5 years old.

In addition to gymnastics clinics, camps and classes, Axis also has Big Air classes and Kids’ Night Out. The latter is three hours either Friday or Saturday night. “Kids get pizza and gymnastics and crafts, and parents get three hours to go out and enjoy themselves,” Stolte said. Axis also offers birthday parties and an after-school program. “In the after-school program, children take the bus right to us, get a snack, a gymnastics class and then some classroom time to do homework or crafts,” Stolte said. “Kids love to come here to learn and have enormous amounts of fun,” she said.

erhaps you’ve noticed the construction going on behind Rendezvous Bistro the last several months. What was formerly Point Inn is now Hampton Inn Jackson Hole. The valley’s newest lodging option opened to guests May 24 and had its ribbon-cutting ceremony June 5. Hampton Inn, which is a subsidiary of Hilton, spent upwards of $5 million on the remodel. “We gutted this building to the studs to make it user-friendly and of Hampton quality and brand standards,” said Heather Falk, the property’s sales manager. The renovation took approximately seven months. “Hampton Inn gives guests to the valley another price option,” Falk said. Hampton Inn Jackson Hole has 87 rooms — 12 of them king suites. Six rooms have fireplaces, and three rooms have jetted tubs. WiFi is complimentary throughout the property, and there is a Jump Start Fitness Center and a very large indoor hot tub. Also included in every stay is a complimentary hot breakfast. In addition to the usual hotel continental breakfast fare, Hampton Inn offers oatmeal and a toppings bar as well as fresh waffles. “There’s a protein, carb and fresh egg option every day,” Falk said. The property has a 350-square-foot meeting space for groups of five to 32 people that can be rented by Hampton guests or by anyone else. The meeting room includes complimentary Wi-Fi, flip charts, easels and a pulldown projection screen. For those in need of audiovisual equipment, the hotel refers them to Hughes Production.

All local businesses — whether for-profit or nonprofit — can take advantage of Hampton Inn’s local negotiated rates. “This program is for any business with clients, guests or technicians coming to Jackson on a regular basis,” Falk said. The exact discount given on rates depends on how often a business has someone staying at the Hampton Inn, but “it’s less than the rate you would receive walking in off the street,” Falk said. Businesses that want to work out a rate program with Hampton Inn Jackson Hole should email Falk at for information. Or visit www.jacksonhole. — Dina Mishev

rofile Massage has always been a leader in results-oriented therapy. And, again, the Jackson-based practice is doing something no one else is doing: creating a 3-D computer model of clients’ bodies they can carry with them on their phones. Since 2009, Profile founder and executive director Landon Wiedenman has been working on the Profile Project, an advanced application that benefits both clients and massage therapists. Next month, Profile therapists, including new associate Christy Cook, will begin using the app to track clients’ treatments and progress. The app was developed by Wiedenman and his partners, Alon Wiedenman, Lisa Chong and Dr. Barry Green — who in the late 1970s opened the first state-approved massage school in California and has personally trained more than 3,000 massage therapists. It benefits clients by allowing for better continuity of care and by giving them greater control of their health care records. It benefits massage therapists by offering predictive treatment models. “Profile Massage was founded to help people,” Wiedenman said. “This is the next phase of development for us.” Wiedenman said he first began thinking about the need for such an app because so many of his clients also see massage therapists elsewhere. “When I’d see these clients, I’d always be thinking that I wish I knew what their other therapists were seeing and doing with them,” Wiedenman said. “If I knew what their therapists elsewhere were doing, I could give better continuity of treatment, which in turn would better help my clients.” So, starting this fall, after years of research and development, the Profile Project app (tentatively called Massage Advisor) will debut at Profile Massage and at select practices in San Diego and Los Angeles that have a relationship with Barry Green. Rather than making notes on paper, therapists will enter observations directly into the app’s 3-D note-taking system. Upon check-in, clients will do the same. “This app was developed in layman’s format,” Wiedenman said. “You don’t need to know what things are called or be able to anatomically describe them. A 3-D computer model corresponds to your own body, and you just point on the model to areas where there are issues.” The benefit to therapists is that the app synthesizes all the inputs from clients and therapists to suggest predictive treatment models. “I’ve given upwards of 5,000 massages, and still most every day someone comes in with a new pattern and I don’t immediately know the best way to relieve their pain,” Wiedenman said. “No one person can know everything. This tool allows us to combine all of our knowledge into a collective reference we can then draw from very quickly and conveniently.” Massage therapists and other health care practitioners interested in participating in the Profile Project should contact Wiedenman.

At Vom Fass, owner Kim Weiss offers customers gourmet oils, vinegars, spices and liqueurs they cannot find at other businesses in Jackson Hole, poured “from the cask” into attractive glass containers.

Vom Fass 60 E. Broadway 734-1535 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


ucked beneath the Snake River Grill, Vom Fass has a variety of delightful, imported oils, vinegars, spices and liqueurs — all for the sampling. Cognacs, Irish single malt whiskeys, Calamansi vinegar, rosemary oil: Customers can taste everything Vom Fass has to offer.  “We call it the gourmet’s candy store,” said owner Kim Weiss. It’s a one-stop shop for foodies, she added. The plethora of options not typically available in Jackson makes the place perfect for visitors, dates or just a night out. “This is a fun place to go,” she said. “Most people like to taste things.” Customers can purchase from a variety of glass bottles or containers to fill with simple olive oils or balsamic vinegars. The alcohol products for sale are all pre-bottled in glass containers. Glass packaging allows patrons to personalize their goods with the name of the product or a special message in marker. While the store is not new, its libertine absinthe, sour cherry vodka and apple brandy are. Vom Fass — which appropriately means “from the cask” — received a coveted liquor license last August, which allows Weiss to sell and offer samples of exotic alcohols. “For a scotch lover, this is a real find,” Weiss said. The liquor license also gives the store more wine-tasting and happy-hour opportunities. The shop has signature cocktail drinks for tasting every Friday and Saturday from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. One called the Vixen is a variation of a Cosmopolitan. “Cocktails, I think, are the new thing, but a lot of people don’t know how to make them,” Weiss said. “It’s about figuring out what tastes good together.” In the winter, Vom Fass often has cooking classes and other educational events, such as cocktail and scotch classes. Weiss started the shop two years ago after coming across a Vom Fass in England and buying some oils and vinegars to take home. When her supply went dry, she could not find similar high-quality products in the valley, she said. So she started her own shop “A lot of what we offer you can’t get anywhere else,” she said. Weiss even had her five children do blind taste tests on products Vom Fass offered and a few more expensive counterparts. Her kids unanimously agreed Vom Fass products were better, she said. “Most everything in here is affordable, but you’re getting the best,” Weiss said. “If you can’t afford a lot of the best, you can get a little of the best.” Vom Fass is open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sundays. — By Brielle Schaeffer

ith farm, ranch and home supplies, Big R Ranch and Home has a variety of items to fit all needs. “There’s probably 80,000 different items here,” owner Jim Linton said, “maybe even 85,000.” Downstairs, the store has pet and horse supplies, farm provisions and hardware, and more — such as candy at the checkout counter. Upstairs, the store has Carhartt clothing for men and women, cowboy hats, boots and even toy tractors and horses for kids. “We have a little bit of everything,” general manager Robert Mack said. As such, Big R has an old-time general store feel. It’s a one-stop community shop. The store opened two weeks ago a block east of Giovanni’s on Meadowlark Lane, the former site of the Builders Lumber & Supply. When the lumber supply store was up for sale last year, Linton knew it was his chance to open a Big R in Jackson with his wife, Carol. They have owned a home in Jackson since 1985. “We’ve seen a great potential for this market for 25 years, but there was never a building available,” he said. So far, Big R’s Carhartts, fencing, lawn and garden supplies have been best-selling products at the store, Mack said. With his brother, John, Linton owns other Big R stores in Powell and Riverton. Their family has been in Wyoming since 1890, Linton said. Mack and his crew worked to get the site ready by their end-of-May goal, he said. The business was started from the ground up, Mack said. “There was literally nothing here but the building,” he said. Now the site has several warehouses and goods storage areas. Mack said he’s grateful to be employed by the Lintons, who are family-oriented and community-minded. “It’s great to work for them,” he said. The store serves people on both sides of the Teton Range. “We have a 100-mile radius of customers coming in,” Mack said. Mack said he enjoys seeing all the different patrons come in — everyone from cowboys to average Jackson homeowners and even tourists. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to customers, trying to find them exactly what they need. “Hopefully, we’ll provide a great service to the community,” Mack said. Big R is open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sundays. For more, visit www.lintonsbigr. com. — By Brielle Schaeffer

Light Body Sculpting Studio

ilmmaker Travis Rice, server Jessica Koncak and carpenter Justin Watsabaugh are among the many people who see Gypsy Cloud for massage, energy (NRG) healing and the Rolf Method of Structural Integration. Watsabaugh literally crawled into Gypsy’s office with a back injury that he reported required surgery. Under her healing care, his recovery allowed him to race in the Town Downhill the following year, sans surgery. Gypsy helped Koncak after a fall that had debilitated her for more than a year. “Gypsy’s body sculpting not only has me pain-free,” Koncak said, “but completely in tune with my body.” Gypsy has been in the healing profession for more than 25 years, working in Jackson and Pinedale for the past 13. Clients may enjoy a quiet, relaxing deep-tissue massage or an active Rolf session. The Rolf Method is typically a series of 10 one-hour sessions called a recipe and designed by Ida P. Rolf to realign the body in the field of gravity, Gypsy explained. “You get to keep the results of Rolf work. In fact, the results are not only permanent, they are progressive. Months after a session, you are still reaping the benefits.” After Gypsy herself received Rolfing, she grew two and a half inches taller and gained a better sense of self. “It changed my body and my life so profoundly that I had to train to offer the work to see what was possible for others,” she said. “Now I employ the recipe, following the specific goals of each hour, yet tailor each session to honor the needs of the client I am working with.

I listen to what it tells me to do.” Her gift is to intuitively meet people where they live — “in the body and at the level at which they are willing to be touched,” she said. “If there are areas of the body not working properly due to injury, insult or illness, we address those areas to restore balance, order and function. That restoration effects physical performance, better energy levels or enhanced relationship skills.” she said. “That happens because even as we are working the body, we remember that there is no separation between body, mind and spirit. All aspects of being become lighter. That’s why I call it Light Body Sculpting Studio: As density imprints are lifted from the flesh, the lightness of being is realized.” she said. Healing is about getting to the root of the problem, Gypsy’s client Rice said. “That’s why I enjoy Gypsy’s work so much,” he said. “She is a true healer.” — Brielle Schaeffer

ackson Hole Clean Air, known for nearly a decade for its expertise in air-duct cleaning, has expanded its services to include mold treatment as well as flood and fire restoration and complete reconstruction. The new services are built upon owner Gregg Otto’s many years in the construction and air-duct cleaning industry. He started building in Jackson in 1990 and launched Jackson Hole Clean Air in 2003. “Air-duct cleaning requires going into crawl spaces,” Otto said. During his travels through crawl spaces, he started seeing mold issues. “When we recognize an issue, we want to alert and advise the homeowner toward the proper course of action, whether plumbing-, electrical- or HVAC-related.” Mold remediation seemed like a natural offshoot for business expansion. Otto has received certification in flood and fire restoration, followed by antimicrobial remediation certification through The Clean Trust. The Clean Trust has established, in partnership with ANSI, the national standard and certification for professional mold remediation. The core of this standard is that “mold contamination should be physically removed, and the structure should be returned to its original condition. Attempts to kill, encapsulate or inhibit mold growth instead of proper source removal generally are not adequate,” the organizations state. “So, mold remediation is much like surgery on your home,” Otto said. “It is the removal of the cancer. Mold generally occurs when something is compromised, like a roof that is leaking or not properly vented, a crawl space where a pipe has broken or water has accumulated.” Recently, Otto inspected an attic and found black mold had invaded “because the insulation covered up the venting.” This is where Otto’s 20 years of building experience is vital to the process: preserving the structure, cleaning up the contamination, fixing the issue of why mold grew in the first place and returning the structure/living space to its original condition. If mold is not eradicated, it can cause respiratory problems and trigger allergic reactions. That’s also one of the reasons busi-

Gregg Otto of Jackson Hole Clean Air has added mold treatment as well as flood and fire restoration to his menu of services. nesses and homeowners choose Otto to clean their air ducts. The recommended frequency for air-duct cleaning is every three to five years — one to two for the allergy-sensitive — but that can be influenced by heavy dust and dander, whether people have pets, sensitivity to indoor air quality and especially new construction and remodeling. Rodents are a significant issue, too. “Houses are built so tightly these days that dust and debris builds up and keeps recycling through the structure,” Otto said. After a cleaning, “allergy-sensitive clients in particular notice a big difference.” For its restoration work, Jackson Hole Clean Air has a new piece of equipment: a baking-soda blaster that removes a thin layer of wood that mold adheres to or that has been charred by fire. The process is less aggressive than others, “and gets back to the essence of chemical-free home restoration,” Otto said. Baking soda blasting is so gentle and effective, he said, it was developed for the restoration of the Statue of Liberty in the mid-1980s. — Jennifer Dorsey

Chris Hughes, owner and master mechanic of A1 Auto, says people should know their mechanic as well as they know their dentist.

Giovanni’s 690 S. Hwy. 89 734-1970 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


iovanni’s is back. Not that is ever went away, but a new chef, a new general manager and a new made-fromscratch appraoch to Mediterranean-Italian fare makes it feel like a brand new restaurant. Giovanni’s was opened in December 2009 by Carl and Emily Knobloch, who spend about half the year in Jackson and half in Atlanta, and their daughter, Jackson resident Emmy Knobloch, General Manager Christina Bye said. In Atlanta, the Knoblochs had a favorite restaurant they wanted to duplicate in Jackson, but it never seemed to gain traction here. Bye, who was hired as a bartender when Giovanni’s first opened, was promoted to bar manager within a week and then manager. The Memphis, Tenn., native has a deep background in restaurants. “I started when I was 16,” she said. “I like to go into hotels and restaurants and help them. I like the challenge of making it happen.” Turning Giovanni’s into a success proved not just a challenge, but a pleasant experience, she said, thanks in large part to the unflagging support of the Knoblochs and to the team she assembled, which includes consultant Michael Gallivan. Gallivan is well known as the former chef at Teton Pines and former owner of The Chef’s Table. For the past two summers, he helped reopen a club in Nebraska where he met a young chef named Alex Demmon. “We hit it off,” Gallivan said. “He has integrity, kitchen skills, could work with everyone, and people like to work with Alex.” So, when he was hired in November to help reboot Giovanni’s, he immediately thought of Demmon. Demmon grew up in Pheonix and right out of high school trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Scottsdale. He “bounced around” for a few years before finding himself in Nebraska, meeting Gallivan, and coming to Jackson in November. Gallivan said Giovanni’s new menu is less about unusual or surprising dishes than about “familiar family favorites”: calamari and gazpacho, caprese salad, linguini clams and pasta primavera. “We do eggplant Parmasan,” he said, “but we do it with flare” — prepared to give the eggplant a steaky texture and presented in a striking, stacked tower. “Or our vegetable lasagna is really something,” with a bright stripes of spinach and red peppers running through it — whole ingredients you can easily identify. “Our meatballs are really good,” he said. “When Alex and I started working on them, it looked like a science lab in here,” as the pair experimented to get just the right recipe. “You can’t get more familiar than a meatball, but we really make it special.” Nearly everything is made in the kitchen, including the pasta, the bread, the pizza crusts — even the ice cream. Pizzas are cooked in a Woodstone oven, purchased from the factory in Bellingham, Wash., to which Gallivan and Demmon travelled to get training from the makers in the specialized oven’s secrets and ideosyncracies. And the Mediterranean slant to the menu means lots of other possibilities aside from pasta dishes. — Richard Anderson

t A1 Auto, owner Chris Hughes prides himself on individual service. Hughes, a 30-year veteran of the auto mechanic business, opened his one-man shop on south Highway 89 earlier this year. “You know your doctor, you know your dentist on a oneto-one basis,” Hughes said. You should know your mechanic, too, he said. With auto shops, people often just drop their car off to get it fixed. “Here it’s just me,” he said. “It’s pretty personal.” Customer demand convinced Hughes to open A1 Auto. He was working with Legacy Classic Trucks, where past clients began begging him for service. “I stopped repairs for about six months and did some custom building, and people weren’t too happy,” Hughes said. They were calling him at home to get him to fix their cars, he said. Hughes has spent his life learning and studying about engines and vehicles, working at both Toyota and Subaru dealerships. He’s a factory-trained Toyota master technician and an Automotive Excellence Master. To maintain his master certification, he tests constantly to demonstrate his skills on vehicle brakes, suspension and major engine repair, among other things. He’s knowledgeable about a variety of vehicles and has experience working on domestic and imported cars. “I’ve done a lot of everything,” he said. Just as grease runs through Hughes’ veins, his affection for vehicles runs in his family. “Ever since I was a kid, my father, uncles, grandfather, everybody had cars,” he said. His father was a “semi-serious collector,” with hot rods and other fancy cars. Hughes himself has five cars: three Chevrolets, including a ’96 Impala Super Sport, and two Toyotas. “They show up,” he said. “I can’t get rid of them.” Hughes also has experience restoring antique cars, like his ’69 Chevelle Super Sport. He has worked on other classic cars like Camaros and old Chevrolets, too. At Hughes’ small but homey shop, he does any and all repairs imaginable, from fixing broken automatic windows to oil changes to tuning floorboard engines on older-model Toyota vans. His service is not only personal and personable, it’s also honest. He does not just throw parts at a car problem until he figures it out. Few mechanical problems stump him, but if one does, he tells customers what their options are and a true estimate of what it may cost. Hughes wants to keep his services competitive but affordable, he said. “A lot of people appreciate that one-on-one service, that someone cares about their car and them, and they get to talk to them,” Hughes said. — Brielle Schaeffer

ackson Hole has long been a home (or second home) to many executives. Now the valley has its first full-service executive office center. In November, Mountain Business Center opened above Giovanni’s restaurant at 690 S. Highway 89. Mountain Business Center has seven fully furnished offices complete with secured, high-speed Internet and a VOIP phone system. There’s also a day office, two conference rooms equipped with video conferencing capability and reception services. Mountain Business Center tenants lease less space, yet get more room than conventional office tenants. “It’s completely plug-and-play,” managing partner Kevin Ball said. “It is convenient and service-oriented, so our tenants can focus on what’s important: their business.” Ball is new to the valley but not to executive offices. He previously founded and headed a similar operation in Portland, Ore. Mountain Business Center tenants have complete control of their rented spaces and also have access to a reception area, a kitchen and lounge, and conference rooms. The offices range in size and can accommodate up to four people. Several of the offices are coming up for lease this month. Occupancy agreements are typically for one year, however, Mountain Business Center offers complete flexibility on lease terms. “We offer our clients ultimate flexibility regarding their office needs,” Ball said. “We can customize different packages for different needs.” Mountain Business Center also has a variety of virtual office services, including hourly conference room and day office rentals, mail handling and forwarding service, reception service, and a Nexus package for family trusts and foreign businesses that have the benefit of Wyoming tax treatment. “There are some people who don’t need a physical office but need all of the services,” Ball said. “We cater to those folks by offering ‘virtual office packages’ or each service al a carte,” Mountain Business Center also produces the Investors Information Monitor, a financial platform providing financial information from experts in a variety of economic sectors and asset classes via a monthly newsletter and video seminars. The webinars are 30- to 60-minutes long and are given by a host of industry experts. “We have relationships with the best and brightest experts in almost every asset class who routinely give a state-of-the-union for their area of expertise,” Ball said. The webinars are streamed live and then archived so Investors Information Monitor subscribers can access the information again at any time. The newsletter is a “Reader’s Digest of leading financial publications along with general economic data relating to important sectors of the economy,” Ball said. “The bottom line is that we’re here to assist executives and small businesses, whether they need a physical office, ‘virtual’ office services or enriched financial information,” he said.

ll the library books in Teton County fit in a few hundred square feet of an old log building on King Street from 1938 until 1997. Since then, demand for books and the library’s lengthening list of other services has grown much faster, and after only 15 years in its new building on Virginian Lane, Teton County Library is taking the next big step. Since September, work has been under way on an addition to take the library from 24,000 square feet to 35,000 square feet. When the library reopens Saturday, July 7 — after a closing that starts June 21 for a big push to complete phase one of the addition and renovation project — patrons are bound to think the disruption and temporary closures were worth the hassle. “We’ve designed a space that gives patrons more of what they’d like to have,” said Dail Barbour, library facility manager. The new Youth Wing is the main feature of the new construction. It will provide more room for books and computers for younger users, and features a design that separates teenagers from smaller kids. There will be classrooms that can be used for book groups, study sessions and story time. An early literacy room will be a fun, dynamic area that combines resources and play to promote school and reading readiness skills and family development. The Youth Wing, combined with a move of the adult reading area to the west end of the building, is also part of pleasing grown-ups looking for a quieter space to read and study. “We’re separating some of the more, shall we say, ‘active’ library patrons, who tend to be a little louder, into their own wing,” Barbour said. “At the same time, by changing the reading room toward the west end, it’s away from the Youth Wing

A ribbon-cutting and party will be held 1-5 p.m. Sunday, July 8, to inaugurate the new wing. There will be family events and ice cream sundaes and for teens a “flash mob” featuring a famous literary character. Teens interested in participating in the event should call the library to register for a workshop to be held July 6. In the next phase of construction, the library will focus on infrastructure and interior improvements on the existing building. This includes new floor coverings and furniture and work to boost the electrical and data systems to meet user demand, Barbour said. “The electrical and data were maxed out,” she said. “In the 1990s, nobody anticipated the amount of power and data we were going to be using in libraries.” That work — the last that is planned as part of the project — should be complete by December or January.

Never ones to shy away from a challenge (like making French macarons), the two writer friends decided to take on the task themselves. In December, they launched Dishing, a magazine and companion website (www. that’s the most comprehensive guide to dining in Jackson. “We deliver local culinary content in the style of a national publication,” Rank said. “It is timely, pertinent and showcases the incredible culinary scene here.” Dishing offers residents and visitors entertaining information about restaurants, food trends, chefs and recipes in the region. The free magazine is seasonal, with two issues per year, and can be found around the valley in hotels, restaurants, free stands, select retail locations and through the visitors center. The editors encourage anybody who wants copies to simply request them by sending an email or visiting the website. The summer issue, which hit stands this week, features a story about artisan gelato and ice cream, a guide to the region’s farmers markets and a story about Western-style sauces and spices. The Dishing gals also take a look into Jackson’s wine scene and peer into the coolers of some of the most interesting fishing guides.

A place to meet friends that isn’t a bar, Cowboy Coffee’s new shop in Gaslight Alley will feature one-cup brewing, quality beans from around the world and light fare.

Cowboy Coffee

othing beats a strong cup of coffee early in the morning before a hard day of work, whether that work entails branding cattle, stalking a bull elk, climbing a peak, hitting the ski slopes or heading into the office. There’s something quintessentially Western about having a pot of coffee sitting on the fire at the start of the day — even if nowadays your fire is the stove in your kitchen. Locally roasted Cowboy Coffee has been Jackson’s goto pick-me-up beverage for more than 20 years. But you’ve always had to brew your own cup at home — until now. Starting this summer, Cowboy Coffee is expanding its scope beyond wholesale roasting into the retail business. Now you can enjoy a cup of freshly brewed Cowboy Coffee at the newly opened Cowboy Coffee bar on the northwest corner of Town Square. “We are trying to help people in Jackson expand their coffee experience,” Rob Ottaway said. Ottaway and his business partner Pete MacIlwaine provide the brains behind Cowboy Coffee’s newest endeavor. The coffee bar features Cowboy Coffee’s signature roasts and blends, including organic and fair trade options, as well as a rotating selection of “origin country” beans that are brewed using a one-cup brewing method that has sprung up in the specialty coffee scene in the past couple of years. “People say one-cup brewing makes the best-tasting coffee. It’s definitely really popular right now,” Ottaway said. “Everyone has their personal preference, of course, but one-cup brewing is a good platform to taste the intricacies and flavors of a particular coffee bean.” Cowboy Coffee is all about the quality of its beans. Ottaway and MacIlwaine roast only high-grade Arabica coffees from around the world. But where the plants grow affects the quality and taste of the beans produced, so they will not only serve their regular house blends, they will also highlight different coffee-growing regions on a weekly basis. But one-cup brewing is just the germ around which the new coffee shop is growing. “We will be open until 10 p.m.,” Ottaway said, “so people can come and hang out without having to go to a bar. We want to offer a late-night kind of scene that’s different, an alternative to the bar scene, which is all we have around here right now. “We have a good sound system, so there will be music,” he said. “The atmosphere is great. We’ve redone the whole space to create a nice place to relax, and there will be light food — pastries, sandwiches, salads and soups — as well.” — Molly Absolon

esterners are different. Much of the wealth accumulated out here is first- or second-generation wealth. The families who control the funds tend to be more entrepreneurial than their East Coast counterparts. They have a different mindset about business and financial goals. These are the people First Western Trust Jackson Hole aims to serve, according to president Thomas McNichols. “We are the first Western-based private bank and trust company,” McNichols said. “We started in 2004 in Denver and now have 12 offices in Colorado, Arizona, California and Wyoming. We are geared toward serving the Western mindset.” First Western opened its trust department in Jackson Hole in the spring of 2012 (it also has a trust department in Laramie). Initially, the Jackson office will provide wealth management and trust services. “We know that people like dealing with a local presence when managing their wealth,” McNichols said. “They like knowing the people they are working with, like being able to come in and talk to us face to face. They want a private, exclusive place to do business. And they want expertise in investment management and estate planning. We can offer all these things.” McNichols said Wyoming was an obvious place for the company to expand. Ranked as the most tax-friendly state in the union, Wyoming is an “on-shore alternative to off-shore investments,” he said. “A trust is about building a foundation for security, protection and continued success of a family,” he said, “and the progressive tax laws of Wyoming allow First Western to better do so for our current and future clients.” First Western is renovating a new office suite off South Highway 89 on the second floor, above Giovanni’s restaurant. The new space is scheduled to open in August and will provide workspace for five to six employees — hand-picked, top-notch professionals. “We will have financial expertise here,” McNichols says, “and we will have operational support from our headquarters in Denver. I like to think of us as a kind of boutique trust office. We are small and intimate yet still have the benefits of a larger operation.” First Western calls its propritary approach to wealth management “ConnecView,” which focuses on a client’s entire financial picture and taps into the firm’s many disciplines. No decision is too small or too big to be considered, according to First Western’s approach. First Western clients always have a familiar face in a local associate, but an entire Western team is at their disposal to realize financial dreams. “Of course, the main money centers of the world are New York, London, Hong Kong, Zurich,” McNichols said. “But when you combine our local expertise with our ability to tap into outside resources, I think we bring the best of both worlds.” — Molly Absolon 733-4427 ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


any women and men are familiar with Jackson Hole’s harsh, high-altitude climate that’s tough on skin and makes skin care a challenge. Few, however, know Jackson Hole as a center of skin-care research and innovation. A Jackson-based company is changing that. TriLipid Research Institute LLC is combining advanced science with natural ingredients in innovative new ways to help heal and prevent dryness, combat the effects of aging and keep skin at its healthiest and most beautiful. “There are many causes of dry skin,” says Frank Fanning, CEO of the TriLipid Research Institute LLC, founded in Jackson, “climate, sun, cleansers, age, to name a Trilipiderm / Courtesy Photo few. However, there isn’t enough serious research Jackson’s own solution to dry being done to combat skin, trilipiderm is designed the problem. That’s to help your skin hold moisture in a harsh climate. where we come in.” Fanning’s product, trilipiderm®, is an all-body moisture retention creme. “trilipiderm® actually restores your skin’s natural ability to hold moisture,” says Fanning, “the perfect harmony of science and nature.” For more than 30 years, Fanning, a chemist by trade, ran a business out of Chicago that cosmetic companies worldwide turned to for new skincare ingredients. But “these were primarily marketing companies more interested in cheaper costs versus effectiveness in solving skin-care problems.” Fanning sold that company and with Dr. Alan Wohlman — holder of dozens of skin-care patents and a member of the prestigious New York Academy of Sciences — founded TriLipid Research Institute LLC and began extensive research into the properties of plant-based derivatives. trilipiderm® not only helps your skin retain moisture without pore-blocking petrolatum and mineral oils, the creme also aids in healing skin inflammations and epidural wounds, encourages the production of new collagen to reverse some of the effects of aging, and replenishes the skin’s natural, youthful luster. “trilipiderm® actually waterproofs the skin,” says Fanning. “Once the protective layer of lipids has been restored, your skin becomes moist and healthy.” And in a market where everyone is looking for natural products to put on their skin, trilipiderm® is comprised of all-natural active ingredients, including Abyssinian, Jojoba, Olive and Meadowfoam. “Every day we get new testimonials on our Facebook page,” Fanninng says. “They like the non-greasy feel and the way it quickly absorbs into their skin. They like the airless pump used in our eight-ounce container, which dispenses every drop. And they like the price.” By summer, Fanning and the TriLipid Research Institute LLC, expects to unveil a version of trilipiderm® with sun block. “No matter man or woman, you can’t start early enough in your life being smart with skincare,” says Fanning, “especially with our climates getting drier and drier.” For information about TriLipid Research Institute LLC or trilipiderm®, go to — Submitted by advertiser

e just felt the valley needed a one-stop, friendly small-engine shop,” said Trevor Eva, who with Tyler Doucette and Alan Murdock, owns justopened Most Wanted Performance. The store, which raced to open the week before Memorial Day, has a 10,000-square-foot shop just south of Sunrise Home Center. Most Wanted Performance will service, repair and/or enhance the performance of gas-powered small engines from boat motors to motorcycles, ATVs, side-by-sides, dirt bikes, snowmobiles, chainsaws, lawn mowers and weed eaters. The shop also does customization and performance enhancement for diesel engines. The shop’s motto is “Your one-stop performance shop.” “We pride ourselves on quality customer service, fast turnaround and skilled mechanics,” Eva said. “If someone drives up or walks in with an easy problem, we’re not going to make them wait a week to get it fixed. We’ll roll them in right away, get the work done, and send them on their way.” Doucette and Murdock are certified Polaris technicians. But that doesn’t mean the men know only Polaris motors. “To them, a motor is a motor,” Eva said. “Attaining that certification isn’t easy; you need to know a lot about everything to get it.” Eva has long been known among the valley’s diesel diehards for his work. His truck, which he has customized to be almost 700 horsepower, will be featured on the cover of the July issue of Diesel Tech Magazine. The new shop gets a write-up in the same issue. “The diesel service is more at the custom end,” Eva said. “We’re not going to be the around-the-corner, oil change place, but the place you come when you want a lift kit or more power, better mileage or truck accessories. “Essentially, anything with a motor, we’ll work on,” Eva said. “If it can’t be fixed, we’ll let you know that as soon as we know, as opposed to spending a bunch of your money first.” The three owners, who are also friends and riding buddies, first worked together five years ago when they developed a revolutionary performance kit for select Polaris snowmobiles (a model for Ski Doo snowmobiles is in development). “We all thought this kind of place was something the valley was missing,” Eva said. In addition to service and repair, Most Wanted Performance sells used dirt bikes, motorcycles and snow machines, trailers, parts and accessories for all outdoor motor sports, and Klim helmets and apparel. Come winter, it will carry all necessary gear for backcountry snowmobiling safety. The shop also plans on bringing in a line of dirt bikes for sale, but, as of press time, hadn’t yet decided on the line. Most Wanted Performance is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 to 3 on Saturdays and by appointment. The shop is closed Sundays. For more, visit — By Dina Mishev

he name Champu Salon is new, but the cuts, coloring, manicures, pedicures and facial waxing performed there are just as fabulous as they were when the business was Mimi’s Hair & Body Care. Shara Buday bought the salon last September from her older sister, Mimi Duckett. The salon has been so busy it has taken until last month for Buday to get around to changing the name. Buday, a master stylist and colorist, wasted no time in beefing up the intimate salon’s staff. With her now are three other women: Jessica Dunn, Mitch Theriault and Tori Jo Carson. A Jackson native, Dunn has been doing spa manicures and pedicures since 2008. She briefly relocated to Hawaii so she could work at a spa where she learned new techniques, including hot stone pedicures. She specializes in natural nails, gel polish and spa pedicures. Theriault has been in the valley for 17 years and has been a licensed cosmetologist for 11 years. “I love my job,” she said. She does hair cutting and coloring, manicures, pedicures and facial waxing. Carson specializes in coloring and cutting. Buday was Duckett’s first hairdresser. “Mimi flew me out here to work with her when she opened the salon,” Buday said. “It wasn’t a hard sell; I had been out the summer before and knew how beautiful it was.” In addition to cuts and coloring, Buday does lots of wedding work, especially in the summer. (Full disclosure: Buday did my hair for my wedding and understood exactly what I wanted.) While the salon is as comfortable and fun as it was when it was Mimi’s — “What we hear from our clients again and again is that it’s a very inviting salon,” Buday said — the new owner did redecorate. “It’s my taste now,” she said. The salon continues to stock a variety of retail products such as Redken, Paul Mitchell, MoroccanOil, Pureology, Bed Head, Alterna Bamboo, Jack Black and Matrix Biolage. It also continues to seek out only the best products to use on clients. “We’ve got the caviar of color lines now,” Buday said: “L’Oreal Professional IONA,” the first permanent, ammoniafree hair color. Its motto is “supreme respect for the hair.” Champu also uses Pravana color, which is free of parabens, sulfites, cocamide, DEA, formaldehyde, phthalates, and other ingredients that have been shown to be harmful to people and the environment. “Pravana is the ideal color for high lift, always achieving the perfect tone, never brassy,” Buday said. Champu is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday or by special appointment. — By Dina Mishev

t’s been a few years since Teton Science Schools offered adult seminars — what with getting a new campus up and running and a whole bunch of new youth programs — but this summer the 45-year-old outdoor education institution brings adult programs back with “eyeNature.”  “We’d been thinking about that for a number of years, wishing we could do that again,” Dr. Doug Wachob, assistant executive director, said. “This is an attempt to do things that require a low commitment from participants but that are unique.” Through June and July, Teton Science Schools will offer seven four- or five-hour courses tailored for adults and taught by members of the schools’ faculty. In keeping with the times, and as suggested by the name of the series, most have a distinctly 21st-century, technological component. Wachob, for example, will lead “Science for Stewardship,” which will teach telemetry — an essential tool in wildlife management today. Participants will get to actually experiment with the radio collars and antennae scientists use to track elk, wolves, grizzlies and other wild research subjects. “GPS Scrapbooking” will show how to use handheld technology for a new way to document outdoor adventures, create “virtual tours” of exploits and share them with friends and family. “There’s no way you could have done that 10 years ago,” Wachob said, highlighting how adult seminar possibilities have evolved since the last time the schools offered them. Other seminars include “Wolves of Jackson Hole: The Known and the Unknown,” taught by biologist Paul Brown, who will offer four hours of science-based information about wolves: pack behavior, habitat use, denning behavior and facts versus myths. “The Geography of Childhood” will train adults to teach their children how to play in the out of doors without a plan or program — something too many kids (and adults) have forgotten how to do. “When I was a kid, my mom was like, ‘Get outside, I don’t want to see you until dinner time,’” Wachob said. “Current generations are not doing that. There are all kinds of studies dealing with everything from health to social development that points to free play out of doors being an important developmental component for children.” And “Primitive Skills: Past meets Present” attempts to suggest what life in Jackson Hole might have been like 250 years ago and to teach a few of the talents one would need to survive — from making fire to using every last bit of that elk you plan on hunting this fall. Of course, eyeNature seminars are not designed solely for valley residents. Visitors are encouraged to sign up, too. The age limit on “adult,” however, is 16 and older. Summer is a busy time at the Teton Science Schools, with its Teton Junior Science School for children in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, also offered at the Jackson Campus, and its field ecology and field natural history programs for middle school and younger high school students. Its flagship field ecology program for older high school students dates back to the schools’ founding in 1967. “Those are life-changing kinds of programs,” Wachob said.

reat fun,” wrote two families from Moscow. “Greatest shooting experience ever,” said a couple from Vancouver. “Awesome time with Shepard at JH Shooting Experience,” wrote a Jackson Hole gentleman. Jackson Hole Shooting Experience is only 3 years old, but customer accolades like these posted on have already made it No. 1 on the popular travel website’s list of “Fun Things to do in Jackson Hole.” Owners Lynn Sherwood and Shepard Humphries and their team of instructors offer basic shooting and safety classes. They also have a “Luxury Entertainment Shooting Experiences,” providing a safe, educational and fun introduction to shooting and, for the more experienced marksman, ample opportunity to hone skills. Proficiency with guns is not a prerequisite: Families, corporate groups, tourists, college buddies reuniting, clubs and event groups with varying levels of expertise have all gotten a little taste of the Wild West by firing at targets under the open sky, with tutelage from instructors and always with an eye to safety. And while the photo of the bride and groom on the range begs an invitation for “shotgun wedding” jokes, Jackson Hole Shooting Experience does offer truly unique experiences tailored to every desire. “The majority of our clients have never shot before,” Humphries said, “or if they have, it was 30 years ago at camp.” The “Multi-Gun Rifle & Pistol Experience” has been the biggest hit with everyone from grandmothers to retired Marines. It offers an opportunity to spend half a day with an instructor shooting two dozen pistols and rifles, including .22-caliber precision rifles and pistols for plinking as well as an AK-47, a WWII rifle with bayonet, an AR-15 with premier Aimpoint optics and a Remington 700 .308 sniper rifle. “This experience introduces a wide variety of firearms and allows us to tailor the experience to each shooter,” Sherwood said. Sherwood and Humphries have added unique new experiences to the menu to tailor the fun to guests’ specific interests. The “Big Shot Premier Experience,” for example, includes the 50AE Desert Eagle Pistol, Smith & Wesson .460 revolver, 300 Win

At the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience, Shepard Humphries and Lynn Sherwood give novices and experts a chance to shoot a wide and exhilarating collection of arms. Mag Sendero and even a .50-caliber BMG rifle. The owners describe this experience as an “intense one” that will “leave you exhausted and exhilarated.” In addition to the sportsman’s love for shotgun clays, new entertainment shooting experiences include a costumed competition called the “Cowboy Action Shooting Experience.” Guests dress in Old West attire, take on aliases like “Deadeye Dorothy” and “Stagecoach Steve” and move through stages modeled after the nationally recognized SASS matches. Beyond expanding their brand of entertainment shooting, both are NRA-Certified Instructors for basic pistol, rifle and shotgun, and they are eager to roll out more NRA and general skill-building opportunities. Sherwood has a passion specifically for bringing women and youth into the realm of shooting sports. Reservations are required for courses and experiences. “We’ve yet to find anyone who has not just loved it,” Humphries said. — Jennifer Dorsey

e’re becoming more technologically advanced while still addressing the needs of our patients on a personal level,” said Dr. Mary Girling, a boardcertified Fellow of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, of her Jackson Hole Women’s Care. Girling’s style of care and the advanced technology she offers is so popular with patients that last October she had to move from shared offices in the Wilson Medical Center to her own space in downtown Jackson. “The new location is working out beautifully,” Girling said. “We’re two minutes from the hospital, and there’s plenty of room for us to do all the different procedures we do.” Girling had her own practice in Wilson, but she shared support and office staff with other providers. In the new location, her patients only deal with her staff. “When they call, it’s always the same person answering the phone, and it’s always the same nurse,” Girling said. “You don’t need to explain who you are when you call. It’s complete continuity of care.” Answering the phone is Girling’s office manager Samantha Smith, who is a CNA. “The fact she has medical training puts her in a great position when answering the phone,” Girling said. “She knows how quickly we need to get you in.” Girling also works with registered nurse Yan Olais. “She’s smart and very caring,” Girling said. “Some people might fear they won’t get a high level of care at a small practice,” Girling said. “I think it’s the opposite. Our patients see the same person every time they’re here, and

Things won’t get lost in communication.” There are additional benefits to going to a small practice. “We are able to sit down and talk about what patients want and give them choices instead of just dictating what their care will be,” Girling said. Although small, Jackson Hole Women’s Care is a valley leader in bringing technology to patients. In July, the office will be among the first (if not the first) OB/GYN practices in the valley to use electronic medical records. Patients will be able to go to a web portal “to get copies of results rather than just a phone call,” Girling said. Girling’s full services include low- and high-risk pregnancies, advanced ultrasounds, in-office infertility treatment, evaluation and treatment of incontinence and pelvic prolapse, menopause and hormonal counseling, and medical and surgical alternatives for treatment of pain and bleeding. — Dina Mishev

Alterations by Carmen

hether you have a designer dress, curtains, a backpack, sleeping bag or wedding dress that isn’t quite perfect, Carmen Rodriguez can alter or repair it. In April, Rodriguez, who three years ago moved to the valley from Santiago, Chile, opened Alterations by Carmen behind Char-Ral Floral. Although she just opened the store, Rodriguez has been working with clothing for decades. She previously had her own clothing and tailoring shop in Chile. Since Rodriguez moved to Jackson Hole, Katherine, the high-end clothing store in downtown Jackson, has been recommending her to clients. “She knows exactly what has to be fixed and how to do it,” Rodriguez’ daughter, Daniela Peterson, said. “Her English isn’t perfect, but she knows exactly what clients need.” Rodriguez doesn’t make clients wait, either. At most, she takes a week to alter or fix a garment. “She tries for four days, though,” Peterson said, “but she will help you if need a rush order.” Rodriguez even works on knitted and crocheted garments. In fact, she teaches knitting and crochet classes at Teton County Library. “Anything that has to do with clothing and your hands and creating, she knows how to do it,” Peterson said. And Rodriguez works with leather. “From the simple — a jean hem — to the most extensive and complex — altering a detailed bridal dress — she can do it,” Peterson said of her mother. “And she can also restyle clothing and even design a pattern and craft that.” Alternations by Carmen also offers custom wedding and bridesmaid dresses. Peterson designs the latter, has seamstresses

She started a custom bridal dress store in Chile several years ago. “It was successful, but tough to do with me living here. So I decided to do it in Jackson, where I live.” Peterson’s designs go from simple and elegant to over-the-top affairs with lace, beading, and embroidery. “It all depends on the bride though,” she said, “what she wants — her style, where she’s getting married and what looks good on her.” While a custom wedding dress sounds expensive, “I have very affordable prices,” Peterson said. “Every woman deserves a beautiful dress on her wedding day.” She needs only 10 to 12 weeks to design and have a dress made. Several of Peterson’s designs are on display in the shop. “You can call at 413-6528 for an appointment to fit dresses and talk about something completely custom,” she said. Alterations by Carmen is open 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Mondays through Fridays. — Dina Mishev

hen Northwestern Mutual financial representative Brendan McDermott sits down with a client for the first time, he asks questions: What’s important to you? What are your goals? Those conversations are the cornerstone of the relationship-based approach he takes to coming up with a package of insurance and financial products designed specifically for each client. “It’s all about learning more about individuals,” he said. “That way, I can be more relevant in the ideas and recommendations I give them.” Families and small businesses are often concerned about maintaining financial stability if a spouse or business partner dies or becomes disabled. McDermott can discuss with them life insurance, long-term-care insurance, disability insurance, annuities and other solutions. New parents might want to know how much they need to save per month to pay for their baby’s college education in 17 years. McDermott can help them maximize the potential for scholarships and grants and also create a savings plan via a tax-efficient, flexible investment vehicle. If the clients are planning their postwork lives, McDermott will ask, “How do you picture your retirement on a day-to-day basis?” He then will help people put dollar figures to retirement goals and use investment products to achieve them. Whatever the clients’ goals and values, “together we can put everything in place so that, whether life goes perfectly or not, the family will still be in great financial shape,” he said. “My favorite thing is seeing a family drive off with their 3-month-old in the car seat and knowing I’ve done everything I can do for that child.” McDermott has worked in insurance and financial services for more than five years and opened the Northwestern Mutual office in downtown Jackson in October.

Eleanor’s 832 W. Broadway, in Plaza Liquors 733-7901 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


egulars to Jackson’s Hole Bar and Grill insisted on calling the spot behind Plaza Liquors by its old name: Eleanor’s Cuvee. So owners Stan and Alberta Kucharski dragged out the nightspot’s old wooden sign they had kept when they bought the establishment and hung it back up. “It used to be fine dining,” Alberta said of the old “cuvee” days, “but we like say we serve fine bar food.” So they hung a new smaller sign over the word “cuvee.” The placard above the front entrance to the comfy, discreet watering hole in the Grand Teton Plaza now reads “Eleanor’s … again!” Aside from the new-old name, Eleanor’s also has a new menu — or, rather, a renewed commitment to continue to keep its menu fresh and ever-changing. Thanks to a cook with an urge to try new things — Anthony Castillo — specials pop up and get added to the regular fare. A lasagna Castillo concocted recently was “the best I’d ever had,” Alberta said. And when a Latina lady asked if Castillo could make “street tacos” — a simpler, more authentic style that pares down the filling to mostly expertly spiced and seasoned meat and sauce — he came through with a meal that nudged out the menu’s earlier version. “He said, ‘That’s how I make them at home,’ ” said Stan. “I said, ‘Well then, consider this your home!’” The former owners of Heroes Comics, the Kucharskis were ready to leave the valley and move to the small home they had owned near Orlando, Fla., when the lease was up on their last retail space, up the stairs at 20 W. Broadway. But Stan had been doing the books for Plaza Liquors’ previous owner for some time, and when he was ready to get out of the business, he asked the couple if they were interested in buying it. That was about one year ago, and despite the Great Recession, business has been good at both the liquor store and the restaurant. “We’re not touristy,” said Stan. “We want to be a comfortable local place — ‘Cheers’-like.” Eight televisions make it a great place to watch the game. A small stage accommodates local bands Whiskey Mornin’, Lazy Eyes and others weekly throughout most of the year. And Saturdays bring Latino Night, with a Latin DJ and a dancer instructor teaching basic salsa moves. Nevertheless, the couple said, tourists are always glad to discover the out-of-the-way spot and its simple, affordable food, like 50-cent wings, burgers and sandwiches, soups and salads. In fact, their current menu has only five items on it that cost more than $10. “We keep our menu limited to what we do well,” Alberta said. “We keep it somewhat simple.” — Richard Anderson

ust because Fitzgerald’s Bicycles moved to Victor, Idaho, this winter after 10 years in Jackson doesn’t mean the shop isn’t still a part of the community. “The whole point of moving to Teton Valley was to position ourselves as a regional destination shop,” owner Scott Fitzgerald said. “And Jackson is still very much in the region. Over in Teton Valley, we’re also closer to Idaho Falls, Pocatello and Rexburg. We want people from all of these areas to want to come and visit the shop.” And if you can’t come and visit, the shop has launched a new e-commerce site where you can buy most anything in its inventory, from parts to accessories, soft goods and even a few bikes. “Even if you can’t make it over the pass to see us, you can shop with us,” Fitzgerald said. But with a portion of the new shop set aside as a coffee bar, you really do want to visit in person. Fitzgerald has also partnered with endurance cyclist Jay Petervary to start The BikeTender. Just as a bartender serves drinks, The BikeTender serves riding experiences. “It’s riders serving riders,” Fitzgerald said. The BikeTender arranges and organizes custom cycling adventures for cycling enthusiasts. “This is something for someone looking to come and do more than a quick, scenic pathway ride,” Fitzgerald said. “This is for riders who are looking to put in some serious miles on the road with an experienced local rider.” Petervary is the lead guide. Right now The BikeTender just arranges road rides; it hopes to do mountain biking in the future. The BikeTender can organize single- or multiday rides with or without van support. Fitzgerald and Petervary see it as something for locals and cycling visitors. “I see locals who want to ride around the block but have van support or who want to ride part of the LOTOJA course and not have to worry about vehicle logistics using this,” Fitzgerald said. Visiting cyclists can bring their own bikes or select one from Fitzgerald’s rental fleet, which includes high-end demo bikes. The BikeTender also does multiday camps and clinics. These will be part in the classroom, part on the road. “For folks looking to ride the Tour Divide or Iditasport, they can spend a few days with Jay and learn the ropes of multiday bike packing adventures,” Fitzgerald said. Other news since the move includes that the shop has added Scott bicycles as its main line and is now doing bike fittings with on-the-road analysis. “You can get fit by Jay and then hit the road with Jay and fine-tune the fit while getting some cycling tips and technique,” Fitzgerald said. “We’re giving people as many reasons as we can to make us a destination.” For more, go online to and — Dina Mishev


onsultant Susan Eriksen-Meier is acutely aware that, as a resident of the small Jackson Hole community, she has to live with her recommendations. That’s why she believes one of her strongest assets as a consultant is her high level of sensitivity for the interrelationships here. “An out-of-town firm can perform assessment work, but they may miss details or fail to include critical stakeholders simply because they haven’t lived here for two decades,” she said. “It’s the way the data is collected and its interpretation that makes it useful, and that’s the part that is strengthened by a deep understanding of our community.” While she has run her eponymous firm, Susan Eriksen-Meier Consulting, for three years, in September she added a new product line: assessments and surveys. Since Ashley Wilkerson then, she has completed five community assessments and Serving small businesses six surveys — all while con- and nonprofits, Susan tinuing to serve nonprofit and Eriksen-Meier Consulting provides research on which small-business clients. “I’ve been very fortunate to to base a sound strategy. have been asked to complete several community assessments,” she said. “It’s rewarding to see the results being used by our local leaders to make decisions.” Eriksen-Meier said the assessment and survey work is the perfect complement to her existing nonprofit and smallbusiness work. She is often in a client meeting when someone makes a statement, and she has the most recent research on her desk and can speak up and add it to the conversation, sometimes preventing clients from making embarrassing mistakes. “When making strategic decisions for your company or for a community organization, it’s critical that you’re using facts, not rumors,” she said. “You would be surprised to learn how many times data has dispelled one of my client’s long-held beliefs and helped him or her make sound decisions instead of costly mistakes.” Her clients have included Teton County government, Teton County Public Health, the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, the Jackson Hole Travel and Tourism Board, the Jackson Hole Community Counseling Center and St. John’s Medical Center. She also completed the Teton County Social Services Needs Assessment, the Teton County Childcare Assessment and Teton County Public Health Assessment. She’s currently working on the Teton County Justice and Mental Health Assessment. (All these assessments are public and can be downloaded at or on the Teton County website.) “With each study, my understanding of the community deepens further, making me more efficient in areas like strategic planning, board training, grant writing and business development,” she said. Having “strong relationships with key information contacts doesn’t hurt, either.” Also this year, she earned her Certificate in Nonprofit Board Education and her Standards for Excellence Consultant’s License. Eriksen-Meier said she is committed to staying small and local. She feels project overhead must be kept to a minimum, and clients don’t pay for travel, accommodations, commercial office space or other expenses that can drive up other consultants’ fees. “If my job is to provide research to guide the efficient use of dollars, it’s critical that the research itself is conducted in a frugal manner,” she said. — Cara Rank

At Estate Collectables, Tammy Coy indulges her urge to collect — and also to pass on her acquisitions on to other people who appreciate them but don’t have time to search for them themselves.

1150 W. Hwy. 22 690-6777 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


rom a neon Coors sign to a 15th-century china chest, Estate Collectables appeals to the collector in everyone. Truly a treasure trove, the new store is filled with the finds of longtime Jackson Hole resident and owner Tammy Coy. Antiques, furniture, artwork, artifacts, rugs, houseware and jewelry can all be found at Estate Collectables. “I have always collected,” Coy said. Wherever she went, particularly on road trips, she would stop at antique stores and garage and estate sales. She turned her collecting up a notch and ultimately filled the garage — to her husband’s dismay. “I think I always knew in the back of my mind I would open a store,” she said. “I wanted to share my treasures with other people.” In December, she began looking for a space. The 2,000-square-foot yellow house on Highway 22 just west of West Broadway offered the personality she was looking for — homey and inviting — as well as accessibility and parking. Even with her sizeable collection, Coy went on a buying binge in February and March, logging 10,000 miles on her Suburban and trailer. She plans to hit the road again in the fall. Whenever she buys a piece, she tries to uncover a bit of its history. “If all this stuff could talk, it would be pretty fun,” she said. A Gothic night chest tells a singular story: In Belgium in 1515, a family commissioned the chest, which featured handcarved faces of real people. Later, the same family had a reproduction made, which now sits inside Estate Collectables. Customers marvel at the array. The “Kitty Cat Chair,” as Coy calls it, captivates. Made out of manzanita, it features elk hides on its sides and a stuffed cougar on top. Coy has arranged each room with a theme, like the “Man Cave,” filled with masculine wares. She also sells her own wildlife photography. Coy aims to appeal to a wide array of wallets. The vintage albums she stocks lure young people in, whereas a Wooten desk draws serious collectors. “Everybody seems to be collecting something,” she said. Some customers ask Coy to keep her eye out for certain items, while others bring in oddities, hoping she will sell them. She does estate liquidations and accepts consignments, at her discretion. While Coy still maintains a storage unit, she did empty out the garage. “My husband is so happy he has parked his truck back in the garage and fears to take it out,” she said. Estate Collectables is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays, and closed Mondays. Visit for more. — By Katy Niner

any people think of bread as that inert material that holds their sandwich together. Kevin Cohane knows different. He knows that bread is alive, that you don’t just mix it and bake it — you almost grow it. After all, it’s the m i c ro s co p i c yeast fungi, single-celled but living, that makes grain and water turn into bread. “I just was attracted to the science behind it, the life,” Cohane said in explaining the attraction. ”It’s dealing with keeping organisms alive. I kind of Ashley Wilkerson like that.” Kevin Cohane of Persephone Bakery C o h a n e wants people to appreciate bread as and his wife, bread and not just something that goes Ali, opened on the side. Persephone Bakery about a year ago, taking the name from an ancient Greek goddess kidnapped by Hades but able to return to the world for half the year — the half of sun and warmth, when things return to life. Cohane built his bread business on college biology and chemistry studies, work at restaurants, an apprenticeship at a Chicago bakery and pastry studies at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. He and Ali knew they wanted to bake and that they wanted to do it in Jackson. They adopted a big German oven, and since then it has been all — well, a lot of hard work. But it’s also been a growing success, with a line of handmade breads that includes baguettes, ciabatta, whole wheat and multigrain, pain au levain, sesame semolina and focaccia, along with assorted croissants, tarts, cookies and cakes. They’re sold at Jackson Whole Grocer, the Aspens Market, Pearl Street Meats and, just recently, Albertsons. Persephone products also are served at Jackson restaurants, such as Snake River Grill, Trio and Cafe Genevieve, and Cohane said people can special order pretty much anything from the bakery, with 48 hours minimum notice. When Cohane tests bread — whether it’s his or that of some other baker — he looks for “crust and crumb.” “I want crispness in the crust and a seasoned sweetness, not of added sugar,” he said. Inside the crust, the goal is “an open crumb structure and a well-hydrated dough.” That kind of bread — made with organic ingredients and by a handmade process that earns it the name “artisanal” — costs more than a supermarket loaf, but there’s growing demand for the good stuff. And Cohane wants people to enjoy it. “I want people to break away from thinking a sandwich has to be square,” he said. “And I think that slowly people will come around to think of bread that has a flavor of its own.” “If people will just keeping eating it,” he said, “we’ll keep making it.” For more, visit — Mark Huffman

Samantha Eddy, owner of Spirit bookstore, wants to be a home for Jackson Hole’s community of spiritual seekers — a place they can meet and explore together — as well as a source of distinctive books, cards and gifts.

Spirit 1230 Ida, Wilson 733-3382 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


amantha Eddy’s Spirit bookstore offers more than just books. It stocks tarot and other divination cards, crystals, candles, tools to help one realign with the cosmos, jewelry, Tibetan Buddhist items and more. But Eddy hopes to do even more with the cozy space near the Wilson shop of Pearl Street Bagels: She wants it to become a hub in the valley’s active and diverse metaphysical community. “There are so many amazing people doing so many amazing things in this area,” she said, “but there’s really been no way to know what’s going on other than overhearing someone in line at the grocery store.” Spirit is a center where people can learn more about what’s going on around them — and what’s going on within them. In addition to books and gifts, the store has a room for healers to meet with clients and a larger room where Eddy has hosted guest practitioners for presentations and discussions. Even if you’re not deeply into spirituality, it’s a great place to find a gift, and even has fun, thoughtful games and books for children. Eddy wasn’t planning on opening a retail business. “I was hit by a bookstore,” the longtime Jackson Hole resident joked. Interested in religion and spirituality her whole life, she began to have profound experiences around 2000 after she took a break from work to have her children. These experiences — including some that made her wonder, “Am I crazy or is this for real?” — urged her to dive into an independent spiritual study. “I felt very alone and confused,” she said. “Books were my support system.” Last fall, she walked into a metaphysical book shop in the Bay Area, “and I felt so at home.” The next night she was having dinner with a friend. “I asked her, ‘Do you want to move back to Jackson and run my bookstore?’ She said, ‘What bookstore?’” When she got home, she discovered a space in the downtown Wilson complex where she already had an office — she does “intentional clearing,” working with clients to remove emotional blocks and limiting belief systems — had become available. By Dec. 20, Spirit was open for business. It has taken several months to get the store stocked — its inventory is anything but run-of-the-mill — and to make the thousands of personal decisions that have resulted in Spirit. “There’s a huge intention as to what is in here,” Eddy said. “The emphasis I have is on what is truth and what is sacred.” But now she’s ready for Spirit to take its place in the valley’s alternative spiritual community. She has already hosted several guests to speak and teach about such subjects as “intentional resting.” More are planned, and she hopes to be able to offer longer, multi-day experiences in the future. “In addition to Spirit being a bookstore, I want it to provide experiential opportunities in self-exploration and spirituality,” she said.

wenty Two Home offers an inspired and sophisticated take on Western design,” creative director Saxon Xavier Koch said, describing the new store. “We pay homage to the West but bring in inspiration from many regions. Our mix includes carefully curated pieces from around the world. The showroom and design studio’s aesthetic is a reflection of the grandeur and beauty of Jackson — understanding the utilization of negative space and integrating that feeling with the open space and sweeping vistas of the natural landscape.” Owner and principal designer Elisa Chambers added, “We also like to take things that have traditionally been held in high esteem — say, an elk antler chandelier — and be a little irreverent with it. Some of our elk pieces are coated in silver.” Twenty Two Home opened on Town Square on Feb. 17 and has already shown itself to be popular with both visitors and locals, which is exactly what Chambers planned. “We’re on the Town Square,” she said. “It’s important to be mindful of who’s walking in. It’s equally as important to inspire both people who live here and visitors.” Twenty Two Home aims to have a unique selection to offer customers, whether they are residents or a visitors. At Chambers’ full-service design studio, Snake River Interiors, which opened in 1998, she often works with local craftsmen and women to design custom pieces for clients. Twenty Two

Home does something similar. “We approached some local artists and craftsmen to make small things we could carry,” she said. In early June, Koch said, a woman visiting the valley from California said, “I wish we had a store like this in Laguna Beach.” “I think we’re forward-thinking,” Koch said. “Home design and decor in the valley is changing.” And Twenty Two Home doesn’t just sell home and lifestyle items that look good — it is good for the environment, too. “We tend toward the sustainable,” Chambers said, “and carry several lines made in the USA.” The store carries furniture, fabrics and design pieces by Los Angeles-based Cisco Brothers. The company’s factory is in south central LA, and most everything is made by hand. Visit for details. — Dina Mishev

ots of people have bright ideas, but many innovators need help putting their thoughts into action. Enter Clare Payne Symmons and her new business, Strategy. “Strategy was created to help individuals and businesses reach success by providing focused attention to one’s goal,” she said. The former executive director of the Center for the Arts and past president of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, Symmons has conducted strategic planning for nonprofits for 25 years. Her experience developing nonprofit and philanthropic organizations formed the basis of her idea for the business, she said, which she started last October. Working with clients, Symmons helps them identify their missions, develop strategic goals and create measurable objectives while setting a timeline and an action plan, she said. ”I am not a coach” she said. “I offer an intensive, focused process that gets people to a place where they can do the work themselves.” This spring, Symmons launched a six-week program, working with seven people with ideas for businesses. They met weekly in a group setting to learn the principles of strategy as well as one-on-one with Symmons to work through their plans. She helped the group work on everything from growing existing businesses to making life decisions, Symmons said. She helped another client, Profile Health Systems LLC, prioritize and create an action plan to launch a new product, including intellectual property rights, finding venture capital and making business and

marketing plans. More than talking and counseling, Symmons works with her clients through a method that has been successful and crucial for nonprofit organizations. “As we go through the process, participants learn about their own personality types, their strengths and weaknesses, and the opportunities and threats of their environment, which helps them determine what they need to focus on to succeed,” she said. “Regardless of the outcome, they come away knowing themselves better and are better able to process decisions in the future.” Through her business, Symmons is providing a service she always wanted for herself. “All of my life, I have wanted someone who is there to bounce ideas off and help me work through a decision, someone who is unbiased and not invested in that decision,” she said. “I am excited to provide that service to others.” — By Brielle Schaeffer

ebi Thompson has always known she is a nurturing person. It took her a while, however, to figure out what to do with that knowledge. In college, she studied psychology and physical therapy, but when circumstances led her to take a break from higher education, she turned to massage therapy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I fell in love with it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a knack for it. It fit with everything I knew and wanted. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where I stayed.â&#x20AC;? A graduate of the Utah College of Massage Therapy in Salt Lake City, Thompson has been practicing for going on 17 years. She moved to Jackson eight years ago with her husband, James, who makes custom cabinets, and directed the spa at the Snake River Lodge and Spa until two years ago, when she decided it was time to venture out on her own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked at so many places, looking for the right location, for the right feeling.â&#x20AC;? She finally found it in the cozy little complex off Center Street, behind Char-Ral Floral. The large Hopi-style bear paw carved into the front door was probably the first sign that she had found a home for her Breathe Spa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a flair for tribal and indigenous cultures,â&#x20AC;? said Thompson, who was born in Africa but moved with her family to Utah when she was 2. Thompson describes her work as a medley of methods, though her strengths are structural integration and deep tissue massage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very intuitive,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I start with body mapping, interpretting how the body is working and what areas might be in dysfunction.â&#x20AC;?

n Jackson, bad knees are about as common as cavities. If you haven’t had surgery yourself, you have at least a handful of friends who have. As we age, those hard-worn knees become increasingly problematic, but most Jacksonites aren’t interested in giving into age or pain. Right now, your only option usually is surgery. Nearly one in 20 people older than 50 in the United States has at least one artificial knee. But that kind of draconian solution could change, according to Dr. Rathna Raju, owner of Reincarnation Medical Spa Center for Advanced Preventive and Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Raju has just finished advanced training in regenerative medicine, a rapidly growing field that uses adult stem cells extracted from a patient’s adipose fat tissue through liposuction to stimulate growth in damaged or aged tissues. Stem cells are those that have the ability to self-renew and differentiate along multiple pathways. So stem cells injected into knee joints can help generate new cartilage, for example. But it’s not just good for creaky knees. Current research shows that regenerative medicine can be used to help heal heart tissue damaged after a heart attack or to increase facial volume lost from age, among many other things, Dr. Raju said. To reflect her new training and expanded scope, Dr. Raju has added “Regenerative Medicine” to the name of her clinic, and will officially open the regenerative part of her practice in July. At that time, Dr. Raju will be the only physician in Wyoming, Idaho or Montana offering regenerative medical services. “Regenerative medicine is the future of medicine,” Dr. Raju said. “There are currently more than 2,500 studies going on just in the United States into its uses, and probably more than 4,000 worldwide. The technique is cutting-edge and is revolutionizing more traditional approaches to health care.” Dr. Raju, who has been practicing in Jackson for five years, is excited about the potential for regenerative medicine to improve the lives of all patients. The idea is to harvest a patient’s stem cells from his or her fat then reintroduce them into the patient where needed — all during an outpatient office visit. “The technique offers a nonsurgical approach to knee or rotator cuff injuries, for example, as well as options for people looking for cosmetic work,” Raju said. Many of Dr. Raju’s patients come to her complaining about the external effects of aging, including fatigue, loss of libido, wrinkles or age spots. For years, she has had the ability to treat these symptoms with conventional techniques — fillers, lasers and other treatments — as well as bioidentical hormones to optimize hormone status and nutritional therapy. The addition of regenerative medicine greatly expands her treatment options — still without having to resort to surgery. “As recently as 10 years ago, we did not think the body had the capacity to regenerate tissue. Now we’ve discovered that, under the right conditions, it does.” — Molly Absolon 690-6458 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

ocation, location, location. RE/MAX Obsidian Real Estate has a new one. A newly remodeled one, to be exact. And that’s not all. The firm — which, over the last couple of years has emerged as a local’s favorite thanks to first-time homebuyer workshops and classes to help distressed homeowners with short sales and other options to foreclosure — has added staff and services. In addition to helping clients buy and sell commercial and residential property, RE/MAX Obsidian now also has a property management division. The firm recently joined forces with Jackson Hole Retreats. Jackson Hole Retreats owners Lanette Singleton and Ryan Wright are now part of RE/MAX Obsidian. The firm also welcomed two new brokers. Between them, Scott Singleton, Lanette Singleton’s husband, and David Yoder, a local business owner and former president of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, have more than 30 years of experience in the region’s real estate. “Scott and David greatly enhance RE/MAX Obsidian’s overall sophistication and professionalism, and Lanette and Ryan allow us to complement our sales brokerage with a property management division and better serve our customers and clients,” said Brett McPeak, a broker/owner who shares the responsibility of day-to-day management of the brokerage with Audra Hawkins. “At the end of the day, we’re a sales brokerage, but property management really complements that,” McPeak said. “To have someone in-house with a specific focus in that area gives us more depth. And I have known Lanette — and Scott — professionally and personally for 17 years. They’re just people I’m excited to work with. I’m excited for all the new associates.” With the new staff, RE/MAX Obsidian is now the region’s third-largest real estate brokerage. It also is the first and only brokerage member of 1% for the Tetons, which grants donated funds to worthy local environmental projects. RE/MAX Obsidian also stands out in the community for its enthusiasm and focus on the market for locals. “Everyone loves the $10 million listing, but we’re just as comfortable working with a one-bedroom condo in town or a home in Rafter J,” McPeak said. They’re also getting very comfortable in their new digs. “We had maxed out our space in our old offices,” McPeak said. “There was no more room to grow.” When a larger space that had historically been a real estate office just east of Town Square opened up, the brokerage didn’t hesitate. “It’s awesome,” McPeak said. The RE/MAX team invites people to stop in and check out its new offices. “We’re open seven days a week,” McPeak said. — By Dina Mishev

ooped up inside the condo all day. Nothing to do. Bored to death. Feeling unloved. No. Not you. Your dog. Or maybe even the cat. While you’re at your job or on that dream vacation, Fido or Fluffy may be wondering if this relationship is working for them. When they feel that way, a bit of a visit, some exercise and attention, some fussing and feeding will make a big difference. Which is a good reason to consider Chasing Tails LLC. The new pet-care company started by Ali Shafranek provides home pet care and exercise, a good combination for dog and cats whose owners are away and who just don’t take well to being left at a kennel. Shafranek had been doing pet care for years. Recently she decided to make it a real business by starting Chasing Tails. “I found there’s a huge need for in-home pet care, because a lot of people don’t want to take their pets to the vet for boarding, or maybe they just work long hours and need someone to drop by during the day,” Shafranek said. “I’ve been taking care of pets for eight years, so I decided to make it official, to turn it into a business ... and it’s a great business venture for me.” Shafranek can also deal with other household pets, including but not limited to fish and birds, and even offers horse and barnyard care. And while feeding, exercise and attention is the focus for dogs and cats, Chasing Tails can also provide light grooming and can make sure sick pets get their meds. Shafranek visits pets and owners long enough for introductions and a discussion about what the pet will need. The plan might be a trip up Cache Creek — including a swim for dogs whose owners allow that kind of thing — or a cleaner and quicker trip to the dog park for a little socializing, or even just a walk around the block for the older dog. Cats might want to be brushed, have their ears scratched or just enjoy some attention for awhile.. “What sets me apart is that I can tailor the service to what your pet needs,” Shafranek said. “It depends on what the client wants.” Before opening Chasing Tails, Shafranek spent her time in Jackson Hole as a personal assistant, in computer consulting and working for the Grand Teton Music Festival. — Mark Huffman

t a restaurant called Danna, owner and chef Danna Ates hopes people will find a couple of things on the menu they like: something to eat that sounds good but is a bit different than anything they’ve had before and at a price that’s lower than they expected. A lifelong cook, Danna, as everyone knows him, opened the first place he could call his own last December. From the time he knew the space was available until he opened — with “a lot of help from a lot of good friends” — Danna had about nine days. He calls his place “an eclectic, evolutionary eatery. ... My menu consistently changes.” He describes the fare as “simple food with a little bit of an edge, common food with unusual twists. ... It’s all stuff I picked up along the way.” Danna’s lunch offerings include a variety of grillers, quesadillas and wraps “with unique ingredients” for only $7. One of his unusual quesadillas is the Face Plant, with spinach, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and cheese. There’s also a wrap called the Prince of Thai, with sauteed peanut chicken, spinach, ginger, slaw, cucumbers and red onion. Danna has more than a dozen specialty burgers (and near-burgers) priced from $8 to $10. Among them: the Fowl Fireball — spicy blackened grilled chicken with poblano, onion and jalapeno — and the Hogg & Heifer, a burger that’s joined forces of pulled pork and bacon, topped with barbecue sauce. For dinner, a few things you can choose from are taco de huevos, grilled pork tenderloin, fresh herbed grilled chicken, seared salmon and, steaks espresso-rubbed and served with green chile pesto. Figure on $15 for dinner, which includes soup and salad or is served pub-style with waffle fries. Danna features special guest sandwiches inspired by those of famous sandwich shops around the country. He also aims for a monthly theme night, with a guest chef, sometimes a pro, sometimes an amateur, “so people can come in and showcase.” There’s a salad menu with a chef ’s salad, a Far East salad, Greek salad, a Caesar and a grilled portobello salad, along with other specialty odds and ends such as sliders, giant chili dogs and a veggie omelet. Danna wants his restaurant to be a place where locals feel at home. “I have a huge commitment to the local,” Danna said. “I want to create something unique that nobody else has in town ... a decent value meal, good and a lot of food, and everything made to order.” Danna is open every day but Sunday from 10 a.m. The restaurant is open until 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

rime rib. Pork tenderloin. Chorizo and eggs. Guacamole. Tossed green salad. Pies, cookies and cakes. Your average turn-of-the-century cowpoke never ate quite like this. But with their circa-1890s chuckwagon, Joe and Vicki Jones cook up feasts fit for brides and grooms, members of the board, honored guests and loved ones reunited. Vicki was chef at Rancho De Los Caballeros in Wickenburg, Ariz., for 25 years. Joe has been cooking for parties, fundraisers, festivals and country camps for more than 30. Two years ago, they created Western Range Catering, taking their combined experience and packing it all into a real, historic chuckwagon that goes wherever the party is. “It’s an original Western Range Catering / Courtesy Photo 1890s Peter Shut- With their circa-1890s chuckwagon, tler chuckwagon,” Joe and Vicki Jones prepare fine Joe said. “What feasts for bridal parties, members of isn’t original has the board and more. been completely restored. It’s a huge draw for people to have that on-site and all set up, to be able to look at it.” In fact, the Joneses don’t just bring the meals on their century-old wheels, they bring a fascinating history lesson for anyone interested. “We dress in period costumes,” Joe said. “People ask a million questions. They’ve seen it in the movies, but they don’t have any idea what it was really like. … It’s a lot of fun.” And completely distinctive: Their method of grilling and smoking is unique to the area, Joe said, because of the real mesquite wood they use. While the chuckwagon may be the center of attention, “we’re not limited to that.” They can prepare just about whatever style of cuisine clients wish. With or without the wagon, they can cater most any type of event. “Say somebody is doing a fancier wedding,” Jones said, “and they didn’t want the chuckwagon. Just like any other caterer, we can set up and prepare and serve a fine meal for any size group.” Still, in beautiful Jackson Hole — where Western Range Catering is a member of the chamber of commerce — a lot of folks want to hold their events outside. “If you don’t have a kitchen available, you have to be mobile.” They also host private cookouts and events at their beautiful site in Star Valley and can provide private chef services. In addition to catering, the Joneses do educational visits — with turn-of-the-century cooking demonstrations — as well as commercial and advertising photo or film sessions. “We’ll be doing a cooking demonstration at the 100th anniversary of the National Elk Refuge on Aug. 11,” he said. “We’ll be at the Miller House with our chuckwagon doing originalstyle cooking.” Western Range Catering also will be providing the feed at the Jackson Hole Historical Society’s annual Slim Lawrance Barbecue on Aug. 19. “We like doing those kinds of things,” Jones said. “With the historical society, our chuckwagon fits right in.” For more, visit — Richard Anderson

ally’s Pet Garage, well known as Jackson’s only “Service Center for Your Pet,” now stocks small critters. Six years ago, Gloria Courser and her mom opened Rally’s to fill the valley’s void of a full-service pet center. In March, Courser set out to fill another void left by the closing of Valley Feed. Courser, the mother of two small children, used to take her daughter to Valley Feed to play with its stock of small animals. When that store closed several years ago, she asked herself where parents could go with their kids to interact with animals. As soon as she received approval from her landlord, Courser and her mom set out to find as many small hobby and 4-H breeders as they could. They traveled all over Idaho, collecting creatures. “We were a menagerie on wheels,” Courser said. “We had a rat, two lovebirds, a hermit crab, several rabbits and two leopard geckos.” Cresting Teton Pass, the two realized if the pet concept didn’t fly with customers, all of the animals would be theirs. Fortunately, Rally’s customers have rallied behind the idea, and the pet store now houses a chinchilla, a hermit crab, a snake, a guinea pig and lionhead rabbits that look like miniature Persian cats with bunny ears. “We were happy to fill a niche six years ago, and we are happy to fill a niche now,” Courser said. The small animals have been a huge success, particularly with a new clientele of kids. When time allows, Courser gives young visitors a tour of the pet shop. “Kids are popping in after school,” she said. “It has been a blast.” Unlike at big-box pet stores, Rally’s staff tries to handle every animal every day, contact that helps facilitate a smoother transition into a new home. Hamsters have proven immensely popular. “They are a fantastic first pet for kids,” Courser said. She settled on one breed — Russian dwarfs — which are docile and easy to hand tame, she said. Customers can order specific animals, and while Rally’s is not yet equipped to house aquariums, people can place fish orders. Courser grew up in a household bustling with creatures. “We had everything — hamsters, birds, snails, rabbits, a pig. And of course we had dogs and cats,” she said. So while the mom-and-daughter team at Rally’s originally tapped their dog experience, the pet store is helping them to hone their small-pet skills, too. Rally’s still offers full- and self-service grooming as well as doggie day care and boarding. Beyond the critters themselves, the store also stocks pet supplies.

t had a thin, chewy crust, fresh tomato sauce and mozzarella melted to the just-right degree of gooey. Best of all, it arrived on my plate piping hot, seconds out of the oven. “It” was an elk sausage pizza, one of many pizzas that Firebelly owner Karen Hogan served May 12 at Eco-Fair in Powderhorn Park. Hogan’s tool of trade is Maxey, a wood-fired, Italian-made brick oven she transports on a trailer to weddings, rehearsal dinners, kids birthday parties, festivals and other public and private events like Eco-Fair, giving new meaning to the term “pizza delivery.” Pizza is a multigenerational crowd-pleaser, Hogan said, especially when it’s freshly made from all-natural ingredients, like homemade mozzarella, and cooked on-site to order, as Firebelly’s offerings are. Beyond satisfying taste buds, the 3,500-pound Maxey, which heats up to 900 degrees, gets people to mingle in a way other types of catering services do not. Guests gravitate to the oven to talk to Hogan and her helpers as they work. The how-tos of making pizzas interest people, and so do the oven and the fire inside. “People just want to be around it,” Hogan said of Maxey. “It sparks a natural curiosity. We have a blast doing it.” Firebelly’s minimum party size is 45 people. For a group of that size, Hogan charges $900 for all-you-can-eat pizza and side salad. Her basic menu is the elk sausage pizza, a margarita pizza, a pie with garlic cream sauce, gorgonzola, sweet caramelized onions and sliced pears, one with arugula, garlic cream sauce and

She will customize pizzas, though, and with the arrival of farmers market season she will be designing new varieties incorporating more fresh produce. In addition to catering, Hogan hosts makeand-bake parties, where guests create their own pizzas and jiggle them into the oven. She particularly enjoys working with children: They love to get their hands dirty, and she gets to show them that vegetables are tasty. Fire tends to mesmerize, and if clients want Hogan will enhance the Maxey experience by distributing strips of colorful paper for guests to write something on — best wishes to the bride and groom or birthday boy, for example — and then throw onto the embers for a fiery send-off. Undoubtedly some of those wishes read. “More Firebelly pizza, please.” Visit for more. — Jennifer Dorsey

ifteen years ago, Rachel Stam opened Jackson Hole’s only knitting shop. The small basement store on Pearl Street quickly became the go-to source for knitters and crocheters. But as the only shop in town, Knit on Pearl soon outgrew the space. So just a few weeks ago Stam and manager Danielle Scott moved the store from Pearl Street to 145 W. Gill Ave. “We found the perfect spot, with big windows, nice light and a better location,” Scott said. “It’s perfect for growing the business.” Even though the store is no longer on Pearl Avenue, the name is staying the same. “We have given it a lot of thought,” Stam said, “but we decided that we are Knit on Pearl.” The move allows the valley’s only knitting (and crocheting) shop to expand its selection of yarns, needles, notions, pattern books and more. There’s also now space to carry gift items for knitters and non-knitters alike (though they do have a knitting overtone, such as sweaters recycled into gloves and knit stuffed animals). “We’re trying to offer more,” Stam said. One of the biggest benefits of the move is the additional space to offer classes. In the old space, summer was too busy to offer classes. Now, Knit on Pearl hopes to offer instruction throughout the season. By the fall, they envision offering classes during the day, too, which they couldn’t do before because of space constraints. “That’s particularly great for people who commute,” Stam said. “They can come over during their lunch break and take a class, or they can come after work before they drive home.” The new shop has also allowed Stam and

aking people feel good is what N8V Beauty Salon and Spa is all about. Owner Brandy Armajo worked to give the full-service shop above Cafe Bean in Rafter J a relaxing atmosphere before opening in November. The day spa and salon has high-quality, custom-made fixtures — a decor that reflects Armajo’s Native American roots — and a gorgeous view of the Teton Mountains. “It’s so beautiful out here,” she said. “So many people are still amazed every time they come in. They love the tranquility, and yet it’s just right by town.” A deck outside the salon allows customers to enjoy the view and have a Cafe Bean lunch while waiting for their hair color to process. “We’ve really got things dialed in,” Armajo said. Rounding out the serene atmosphere are two new cosmetologists: Maria Huhn and Brie Moss. They both started in May. “It’s a good, calm, happy crew,” Armajo said. Both born and raised in Jackson, Huhn and Moss are trained and licensed cosmetologists focusing on haircuts, colors and styles. “I was the girl growing up that always wanted to do people’s hair and makeup,” said Huhn, who studied at The Hair Academy, a Paul Mitchell school, in Rexburg, Idaho. Moss studied at a Paul Mitchell school in Salt Lake City, she said. She likes the variety of working in a salon. “It’s not the same thing every day,” she said. Armajo, who has worked in the hair and makeup industry for 16 years, oversees everything that goes on in the salon. She is an edu-

Motesicky is a licensed Dell technician who handles warranty work from Afton to Moran. He also services Macs. The majority of his business requires that he rid computers of viruses, replace hard drives or perform basic maintenance. “Anything that has to do with computers, I’m willing to work on,” he says. Motesicky will travel to customers’ homes or businesses and is able to access computers remotely, but most people choose to bring their ailing devices or equipment to Computer Clinic. In addition to computer-related jobs, he repairs iPhones and iPods, flat-screen televisions and gaming systems. With iPhones and iPods, most customers need help replacing cracked screens or repairing water-damaged devices. For gaming systems, such as PlayStation and Xbox, Motesicky is happy to take a peek inside the machine to troubleshoot any problems. “It’s just like a computer,” he says. “They have very similar guts.” Motesicky also works as a consultant for businesses looking to set up networks. He’ll do everything from installation and setup to basic maintenance and ongoing management of the system. He said he values honesty and is upfront with customers when he’s working on their computers. “I’ll tell you whether or not it’s worth it,” he says. Motesicky also works with customers to find the exact product that works for them, whether it’s a replacement part or a new computer. “I’m happy to sit down and find the right one,” he says. “I know what it will be able to do and how long it will last.” The store is stocked with a small array of products, including refurbished laptops, hard drives and some accessories. Motesicky says he tries to order most products online for customers, which allows him to tailor the purchase to each customer’s specific needs and budget. Motesicky has been around computers since he was a kid and has been working on them ever since.

at and dog owners already know that a laser pointer can provide hours of entertainment for their pets. Now, a different type of laser is being used to heal pets of all types. “Companion Therapy Laser is a surgery-free, drug-free, noninvasive treatment designed to give your pet fast pain relief and improved healing times,” said Dr. Dan Forman. Spring Creek Animal Hospital, owned and operated by Dr. Dan and his wife, Dr. MJ Forman (the only boardcertified veterinary internist in Wyoming), has been using the Companion Laser Therapy with great success now for almost a year. Class IV Deep Tissue Laser uses a beam of laser light to deeply penetrate tissue without damaging it. Different wavelengths at specific intensities are used to target certain tissues and depths. Laser energy induces a biological response in the cells called “photo-bio-modulation,” which leads to pain reduction, reduced inflammation and increased healing speed by improving formation of new capillaries in damaged tissue, reduced formation of scar tissue and accelerated nerve-cell regeneration. From chronic conditions such as arthritis, lick granulomas, ear infections and feline acne to more acute problems like wounds, post-surgical healing and pain relief, sprains, strains and intervertebral disc disease, laser treatment has proven successful. “It may sound like science fiction, but we see a lot of older pets with arthritis and use laser therapy to supplement their regular pain medications,” says Dr. Laura Lambruschi, one of the associate doctors at Spring Creek Animal Hospital. “For conditions such as arthritis in the hips and back, the pain relief is almost immediate. Pain reduction is a key part of any treatment.” Spring Creek Animal Hospital, celebrating its 20th year in business, is happy to offer this treatment to its patients as well as to the rest of the community. You can have your regular veterinarian refer your pet for laser therapy. Treatment effects are cumulative, so, depending on the condition of your pet, you may see results with anywhere from one to six treatments. Most chronic conditions will show a positive response in three or four treatments. In addition to offering Companion Laser Therapy, Spring Creek Animal Hospital offers state-of-the-art medicine as it has for the last two decades. It also offers a variety of related services, including pet boarding, doggie day care, grooming and a range of dog, cat and exotic pet foods and products. Dogs, cats, birds, pocket pets, reptiles and amphibians are all welcome at Spring Creek Animal Hospital. Emergency care is available 24 hours a day. For more, go online to — Submitted by advertiser

Detail Drive owner Bobby Poinsett offers a wide range of vehicle-cleaning services.

Detail Driven

940 W. Broadway 730-0512 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


t Detail Driven, Bobby Poinsett challenges the perception that auto detailing is expensive by offering different packages and a la carte services. From a simple hand-wash to 25-step full detail, he does it all. Poinsett has found that many people think they have to spend a couple hundred dollars every time they get their car detailed. Instead, he offers “a wide range of services for a wide range of budgets.” A longtime Jackson resident, Poinsett made his first foray into the auto industry by approaching cars as canvases for his art. Under the name Unknown Custom Airbrush, he airbrushed designs on cars, motorcycles, snowmobiles, even helmets (his designs regularly appeared on careening crafts in the Demo Derby and Figure 8 Races). Having studied art in school, he liked drawing and painting, and custom airbrushing offered an outlet for his creativity. Airbrushing gave him his first taste of the entrepreneurial life. It also gave him insight on his attention to detail beyond airbrushing: To prep cars for a custom design, he would often clean and buff exteriors. He decided to translate that prep work into a business. He opened Detail Driven in April 2011. His company creed: Offer excellent customer service at a fair price. “You can bring in a car that is filthy and trashed, and we will bring it back close to brand new,” he said. Poinsett prides himself on providing a hassle-free customer experience. Knowing how troublesome arranging a ride can be, he offers a free in-town shuttle to and from his shop. Poinsett advocates detailing as a form of maintenance. Think of detailing like showering, he said. Detailing can keep cars cleaner for longer: Mud easily comes off a freshly waxed car. Poinsett has invested in new technology, namely the ecofriendly DrivePur process, which rids interiors of any bacteria or allergens, even cigarette smoke and pet odors. It also applies a protective coating that fends off smells and germs for six months. He has found this treatment is particularly popular among families with kids. He never uses chemical treatments, only steam-cleans. Steam neutralizes odors inside a car, making it smell fresh, not fragranced. Beyond cars, Detail Driven services boats and trailers. “It’s hard to clean big rigs on your own,” he said. “We have all the equipment.” Detail Driven’s first year has taught Poinsett a lot. With a keen business mind, he has adapted Detail Driven to his clientele’s needs. He realized customers often feel confined by packages: They may want some of the services, but not all. In response, he is developing an a la carte menu that allows customers to pick and chose what services they want. “I listen to what they want done rather than telling them what to do,” he said. Detail Driven is tucked in the alleyway between Powderhorn Plaza and Wyoming Inn. For more, go online to — Katy Niner

Margie Kearns is the newest addition to the Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center. She is a certified chiropractor who specializes in upper back and neck problems.

ometimes that persistent headache can be cleared up by simply paying attention to your posture and diet. Foot and leg pain might require that you just try some new exercises or give orthotics a shot. That nagging tendonitis or dull wrist pain doesn’t always need surgery. At the Chiropractic and Sports Injury Center of Jackson Hole, staff members want their clients to think about all of the options available to them to help with whatever is ailing them. “Sometimes you don’t need to go to your surgeon right away,” Margie Kearns said. “Why not try something less invasive and cheaper?” Kearns is the newest addition to the center. The Alaska native started working there in March after finishing her schooling in Portland, Ore. She is a certified chiropractor who specializes in upper back and neck problems. She also has a wide knowledge of nutrition and is one of two TRX instructors at the office, which is connected to a full gym where the center offers private classes as well as classes open to the public. This summer the center is offering gentle TRX classes for beginners. Kearns said the suspension training can help relieve pressure on the legs, which helps with the high-impact injuries that most often show up in Jackson residents. “It can really offload your legs,” she said. The schedule for TRX classes can be found online at The center also offers Lordex, a spinal decompression system. It helps stretch clients’ backs to reduce weight on the discs and allow them to heal. Kearns said the system can help people with herniations, disc problems and bulges, among other issues. She said 75 to 90 percent of patients have a good to excellent response after using the system. The center also offers custom orthotics. Staff member use a system based not only on your feet at rest but also on your feet in motion. The resulting orthotics should be more accurate, Kearns said. Kearns combines custom orthotics with foot exercises to alleviate numerous aches and pains. “If something is going wrong in the feet, it trickles up through the body,” she said. “You need to address the problem at its source.” The center also offers a full spectrum of chiropractic services and accepts all major forms of insurance. They’re preferred providers for many insurance carriers. “It’s a huge office,” Kearns said. “We have everything you want.” — Kevin Huelsmann

In addition to sandwiches and snacks, Creekside Market and Deli now sells beer, wine and liquor. Its wine selection includes Napa Valley chardonnays as well as Barolo, garnacha, pinot noir and Chianti.

reekside Market and Deli has been an essential outpost for years for travelers heading north out of Jackson. Campers, boaters, hikers and everyone else use the shop as a place to stock up before setting off for the day. Now they have more reason to stop by on their way to and from Jackson: The store sells beer, wine and liquor. “It’s a one-stop shop for people,” owner Nick Bochicchio said. One corner of the store — a new enclosed shop within a shop — is now devoted to alcoholic beverages. There are the requisite cases of domestic beer alongside a variety of offerings from local and regional breweries, which get top billing in the refrigerated case. There’s a full selection of liquors, including single-malt scotch and top-shelf bourbons, such as Basil Hayden’s and Noah’s Mill. The store stocks a wide array of red and white wines, everything from Napa Valley chardonnays to Barolo, garnacha, pinot noir and Chianti, among others. There’s even Champagne and Prosecco. The new section of the store isn’t very big, which means Bochicchio has had to take the time to curate his offerings, striving to find quality wines that won’t break the bank. “We want to make sure that every wine you get is a good wine,” Bochicchio said. This year marks the first summer the store will offer beer, wine and liquor. Town officials granted the store a retail license last year. The new liquor addition went up during an off-season lull, and it opened this past winter. Whether you’re heading to camp in the Gros Ventre Wilderness, off on a day hike in Grand Teton National Park or taking a tour of Yellowstone, Creekside probably has something you need. While many customers stock up on sandwiches, chips, Gatorade and a six-pack of beer on their way out to a camping trip or day adventure, the store offers much more. “You could walk out with a meatball sub, bear spray and a Malbec,” Bochicchio said. The store is slated to be have longer hours this summer: Creekside should be open from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, Bochicchio said. The store’s location on North Cache Street affords customers plenty of parking, even for large vehicles such as campers or ones hauling boats. — Kevin Huelsmann

At Just for Kids, Tami Cook stocks new and nearly new clothing as well as furniture, shoes, toys and maternity clothes. She has a waitlist for new consignors.

Just For Kids

150 Scott 733-3422 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


arents needed a place to buy reasonably priced, high-quality items for their kids — a need Tami Cook recognized. An assistant occupational therapist by trade and a mother of five, Cook is not one to shy away from a professional challenge or hard work. And with her retail experience — she took business classes in college and has worked at her daughter’s store, Beautiful Thrifty Rich — she knew she could handle opening a children’s consignment shop. She started looking for a space last July. Downtown rents proved prohibitive, and she had almost given up hope when she went for one last walk around west Jackson on Labor Day. She spotted the Scott Lane storefront vacated by J.C. Penney and contacted the landlord. He offered her the lease. She signed it immediately and went to work renovating the space: removing fluorescent lighting, knocking down walls, repainting everything white, installing chandeliers. In October, Cook opened Just For Kids. The inviting, well-organized store stocks affordable, new and nearly new clothing for babies to teenagers, as well as furniture, shoes, toys and maternity clothes. Knowing kids like to dress up year-round, she has a whole rack of costumes. She also devotes a rack to high-end items. “I absolutely love my store,” she said, and the new career she has made for herself. She enjoys the prospect of working with and for kids, “because they are so full of life.” After a slow start, Just For Kids now is going gangbusters. With more than 300 consignors, Cook has established a waitlist for new clients. To get on the list, call and tell her what you would you like to consign (sizes, gender). Items must be in season and in gently-used condition. “I will not take stains,” she said. If an item needs a simple wash, to remove musty storage smell, for example, she will do it, “but then it becomes a house item.” Also, toys must arrive with batteries and be proven to be in working condition. People keen to consign furniture should call in advance as well. The store also maintains a wish list of customers’ needs. Cook offers consignors 40 percent of the sale price on clothes, 50 percent on furniture. People who spend their earnings as store credit get an additional 10 percent of their purchases. “Like” Just For Kids on Facebook and gain access to special sales. Some items that sit on the rack for a couple of months will have their prices cut by up to half; after three months, some get further reduced to as little as $2. Unclaimed goods she donates to charity. Cook is always in search of certain hot items. It’s best to visit her Facebook page to keep up on what she needs. In the summer, Just For Kids is open 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. — Katy Niner

Then you can select the toe, heel, upper, materials and more — the total number of possible combinations is enormous — building a boot that’s unique to your tastes. “Our custom boots are a great option for someone who demands a perfect glove-like fit,” Jeff said. All custom boots are guaranteed and 100 percent USA-made. “A lot of people come to Jackson and want to get a part of the Western lifestyle with a cowboy boot,” Jeff said. “You need to have at least one pair.

ince opening their Town Square store in 2007, Jeff and Lou Anne Roush have continued to expand their selection of Western boots. Today, they say, Wyoming Outfitters boasts downtown Jackson’s widest selection of Western fashion footwear around, with more than 50 styles of boots for women, 35 for men and an array for children, too. They have even declared 2012 “the year of the boot.” “When we opened the store, we didn’t offer much in the way of Western footwear,” Jeff said. “People kept asking us ‘Where are your Western boots?’” The couple decided they’d been asked the question enough and brought in their first boot line, the well-established brand Dan Post. Cowboy boots became such a popular item that in the years following, the Roushes expanded the department, knocking out dressing rooms to add more space for their footware. Now, in addition to Dan Post, the selection of boots includes Ariat, Liberty Black, Old Gringo, Black Jack and Rod Patrick, an exclusive line that is carried in only 28 other stores in the U.S. With something for every price range — boots start at $150 and increase to almost $2,000 — you’re sure to find what you’re looking for. Every boot is quality, too. Even the most basic pairs have some handmade element. And the more expensive you go, the more intricate the boot and the handwork become. “Our Old Gringo brand is unique,” Lou Anne said, “with hand-stitched embroidery and Swarovski crystals.” Liberty Black pushes the envelope on tra-

New Inn on the Creek owners Casey and Amy Morton constantly work to enhance the guest experience. Recent additions include a tea garden, a revamped Swan Suite that sleeps six and seating overlooking Flat Creek.

295 N. Milward 739-1565 ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


t’s been almost a year since Casey and Amy Morton took over Inn on the Creek. And for almost every day they’ve owned the cozy downtown inn, Casey can think of at least one improvement they’ve made. Most are not noticeable to the average guest, but some are quite obvious, like removing a wall on the back patio so guests can enjoy views of Flat Creek. All told, the 200 or so improvements the Mortons have made were all done with the idea of enhancing the experience of staying there. “At least once a day, someone gives us a suggestion,” Casey said, “and I follow up on it.” The Mortons bought Inn on the Creek on July 19, a move that brought Casey out of a short-lived retirement. The couple owned the 27-room Sundance Inn from 1986 to 2008. For the 15 years before their move to Jackson, Casey worked in or ran hotels in Sun Valley, Idaho, Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., Vermont and Switzerland. So, being out of the industry left Casey feeling somewhat empty. Now, with the 10-room inn, the Mortons are able to focus again on the guest experience. It’s the little touches, they say, that set them apart. Each morning at Inn on the Creek starts with a homemade breakfast. Amy, whose recipes are featured in “The Great Country Inns of America Cookbook,” arrives at the property at 5:30 a.m. daily to bake from scratch. Breakfast, which also includes a hot dish, is served around a communal table or in your room. Sometimes, if it’s not too crowded, Casey will work as the short-order cook, frying up eggs or whipping up French toast. Breakfast also gives the couple a chance to interact with guests, offering advice on where to go and what to do during their Jackson visit. If guests want to just spend some time at the property, they now have a few more options for relaxing. The Mortons recently installed what they call “The Secret Garden,” inspired by the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park. In the back, guests can take a seat in a gazebo or on the back porch and enjoy the Flat Creek habitat. A family of geese frequents the property, as do many of the 200 species of birds that live in Jackson. One of the biggest changes has been a revamped room called the Swan Suite. With help from Kate Binger of Dwelling, the room features updated furniture, new beds and the ability to sleep a family of six. “In my 40-year career, this is my fifth property,” Casey said, “and it’s still just as challenging and exciting as the first.” And, Amy said, “he’s not rearranging the gnomes at home anymore.” For more, visit — Cara Rank

fter 17 years in business, Circumerro Media has shortened its name to Circ. “We’re rolling out an updated identity this month that reflects our successful evolution as a company and the work we are doing today,” Latham Jenkins, founder and president, said. “Circumerro is a Latin word that means to travel, which historically has been our focus.” Circ’s local publications, Jackson Hole Traveler and Homestead, have been great successes for the agency. Advertisers in these publications have sustained the company during the last 17 years, helping to grow Circ’s creative services. The design agency now serves client brands across the country through its core services: branding, e-commerce design, and mobile and Web application development. Circ’s clients span various industries, such as health care, online media, technology, apparel and artificial surfacing. Its client roster has included companies like Cigna, Remedy Health Media, Dell, XGrass and Cloudveil. Over the years, nearly everyone who has touched the agency has come to call it “Circ,” and it seemed only natural to embrace the shortened name, Jenkins said. The change of the name and identity reflects the evolution of the company’s brand and the work that defines the company now. Today, Circ is a multidisciplinary communication design agency. Recently, much of Circ’s work has been a response to the disruption that new technologies create for businesses and the need to build brand experiences that address it. Whether it’s designing e-commerce websites and mobile platforms or building more unified digital strategies, Circ thrives on creating value within digital channels that deliver engaging brand experiences and build brand loyalty. Circ understands that word of mouth is one of the most effective means by which experiences are shared, and to leverage that kind sharing, businesses need to engage their audiences and create conversations around their brand. Circ represents the circular nature of these conversations and is expressed in its new tag-line: “Great brands live in conversation.” Visit for more. — Katy Niner

Rock Lobster offers “mountain casual sophisticated” clothes. “People are just so excited to have something that’s fun, with prints and brighter colors,” owner Molly McCrea said.

36 E. Broadway 201-1348 ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


ock Lobster Lifestyle Boutique has forged a new fashion frontier in Jackson: mountain casual sophisticated. For more than two decades, Molly McCrea has traveled between Minnesota and Jackson Hole with her wardrobe of East Coast-inspired clothing. While Minnesota stores stocked the brands she loved, Jackson retailers did not. So when a Town Square storefront became available, she jumped on the opportunity to fill create a place where men could find ties and buttondowns and women could buy bright print dresses and swimsuits. The store name symbolizes the fusion that is McCrea’s timeless style: The “lobster” references the East Coast, while the “rock” represents the mountains. Rock Lobster opened in August and immediately hit a chord. “The mountain casual sophisticated look is full of bright colors at good price points during the summer,” McCrea said. “In the fall and winter, it becomes classic and timeless: gorgeous cashmere, holiday and cocktail dresses, custom suits and sports coats, waxed coats, winter casual and dress coats, stylish sportswear and comfy flannels.” As a lifestyle boutique, Rock Lobster stocks everything from apparel for men, women, children and infants to gifts, jewelry and home decor. It also offers monogramming and custom fitting. Rock Lobster features a host of brands well-known on the Eastern Seaboard, like Barbour, Vineyard Vines, Shoshanna, Lilly Pulitzer, Jude Connally and Henry & Belle jeans. It recently “crossed the pond,” adding European designers like Marc Cain, Monaco Cashmere and Raoul, a French brand. For men, the store stocks Scotch and Soda, Bills Khakis, Southern Tides polo and sport shirts, Peter Millar custom sport coats, suits, ties and sweaters, Bird Dog Bay neckties, bowtieand-cumberbund sets and cufflinks. On the accessories front, Rock Lobster carries equestrianinspired luggage and bags from Oughton Limited, Lilly Pulitzer wedges and jewelry, Toss bags, the Glamourpuss line from New York City, Atlantis Berlin jewelry and monogrammable cellphone covers in a rainbow of colors and patterns. Its home line features Bella Notta linens. For a sophisticated souvenir, Rock Lobster has Smathers and Branson needlepoint belts for men or women featuring the Aerial Tram, the outline of the Tetons and a bronco on it as well as needlepoint key fobs. A pink Vineyard Vines tote bag bears a brown bucking bronco and, soon, back by customer demand, the store will carry Vineyard Vines bucking bronco ties. Lifestyle lines include Picnic at Ascot picnic baskets and Simpatico candles and diffusers. For bath and body, there is Barr-Co bath and The Laundress line. “We are always changing to surpass the needs of our customers,” McCrea said. “Check in often — you never know what new great merchandise you will find.” Rock Lobster Lifestyle Boutique is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday (8 p.m. Thursday), noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. “We also are open by appointment, offer complimentary hemming on full-price items, gift wrap and are happy to ship or deliver,” she said.

Heriz Rug Gallery 165 N. Center 733-3388 –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––


alking off of bustling Center Street and into Heriz Rug Gallery is like walking into an oasis of calm and quiet. There is an unmistakably soothing effect to being surrounded by hundreds of Oriental rugs: Each one whispers to you, asks you to slow down, to admire its patterns of reds and blues and greens, to feel its dense weave and weight. After 12 years on Pearl Avenue under the auspices of Arteffects, Heriz Rug Gallery has reinvented itself on Center Street, less than a block off Town Square and surrounded by some of downtown Jackson’s finest art galleries. “We sell beautiful art — the only art in the world that you can walk on,” said Roberto Machuca, manager of the store. “We have a diverse selection of rugs, including Western tribal contemporary rugs and rugs for all budgets.” All Heriz rugs are handmade from wool or silk and colored with natural dyes made to last more than a lifetime. The gallery obtains its rugs from family workshops and master weavers in the Middle East and Asian countries. “When you put a handmade rug down on the floor, it just brings all the colors and decor of the room together,” Machuca said. “It completes any room.” Wondering how Far East meets New West? At Heriz the connection is clear. A wide range of Western contemporary designs at Heriz are based on traditional Navajo designs and motifs — a Western tradition that itself was influenced by the Oriental rugs settlers brought with them in the 19th century. Western contemporary rugs often feature a simpler pattern and incorporate square or stylized geometry. Heriz’s Western rugs are highly sought after by local designers, who find the rich, geometric patterns and impeccable quality

Heriz Rug Gallery offers art you can walk on with rugs imported from the Middle East and some inspired by Navajo styles. perfect for the New West. “Our pieces go beautifully in a log or contemporary home,” Machuca said. Prospective buyers will also be delighted by the selection of traditional kilim flat weave rugs. These come in a wide range of intricacy, from the relatively simple to the downright kaleidoscopic. Kilim rugs are available in a spectrum of comfortable and attractive colors and every possible size, from not much larger than a doormat to awe-inspiring works that would warm the grandest room in Jackson Hole. On the back wall of the gallery hangs an impressive 12-by-15 foot example, and the oversize collection is extensive. Machuca pointed out another that measured 20 by 30 feet. “That is what I mean by rugs that are true art and have timeless beauty,” Machuca said. “Every time you step onto a rug like this, it makes you happy. Every time you see it on your wall, it brings you joy.” Heriz also offers handmade Asian furniture and carvings, as well as pillows, candles and a variety of other home furnishings and accessories. All Heriz rugs are supported by an extensive array of cleaning and repair services. — By Richard Anderson
