Band Students Pick Up Trees
Not Just an Actor’s Wife Carol Glenn Potter, Painter, Pens Coffee Table Book STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
he Wood River High School Band students are conducting their fifth annual Christmas Tree Pickup throughout the Wood River Valley on Saturday, Jan. 4. For a donation of $10 ($20 if your tree is over 8 feet) the students will pick up your tree and take it to be recycled. This fundraiser helps the students raise money for their trip next April to Anaheim, Calif. Each student must individually raise $480 to pay for their trip. They will travel by bus to compete in the National Heritage Music Festival and Competition. The WRHS Band has been to Anaheim four times under Director Tony Randall’s guidance. Please call (208) 481-0389 any time to be added to their tree pick-up list.
Backcountry Film Festival BY KAREN BOSSICK
irst-time filmmaker Drew Stoecklein of Sun Valley got an opportunity to ski Patagonia. And he took the ride. He and three other filmmakers turned their adventure into a three-minute film enabling others to “Take the Ride.” That film and more will be part of the ninth annual Backcountry Film Festival being held this Saturday, Jan. 4 at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Doors open at 6 p.m. for theatergoers to buy beer, snacks and raffle tickets good for Sun Valley lift tickets, a Nordic ski pass, Sun Valley Trekking yurt trip, avalanche course and more. The film festival, designed to celebrate human-powered outdoor fun, is being presented by the Idaho Conservation League and Winter Wildlands Alliance. Proceeds will benefit the Idaho Conservation League. The films include “Valhalla,” which follows one man as he tries to rediscover the freedom of his youth, finding it in backcountry ski and snowboard adventure. “Trail Break” from Powderwhore is a black-andwhite portrait of deep-powder skiing. “Nokhoi Zeekh” follows five Americans on a month-long ski expedition through northern Mongolia to document wolverines. “Strong” captures Roger Strong’s reflections about moving forward after a tragic avalanche. “Poor Man’s Heli” features a new and unique way to the top of the mountain. “Youth” inspires us to pack up the kids for backcountry skiing. And “Morning Rituals” features a day in the life of an undercover ski bum. Tickets are $10. tws
arol Glenn calls herself “the reluctant celebrity.” She’s spent more than 40 years in her husband’s shadow as Scott Glenn leant his craggy persona to such movies as “Urban Cowboy,” “Silverado,” “The Right Stuff,” “The Hunt for Red October,” “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Training Day.” Now, she’s garnering her share of the spotlight as Carol Glenn—artist and author. Glenn debuted a public showing of her pottery at Ochi Gallery last year. This week she finished two Ketchum book signings for her new coffee table book, “Carol Glenn,” which showcases her pottery, along with stories related to her work. She’ll have a showing and signing in Los Angeles’ gallery district this spring. “Most people don’t even know I’m an artist,” she says. “Even now, I’d rather Scott was in the spotlight.” Carol Schwartz Glenn has coupled her rigid upbringing in an orthodox Jewish home with her fascination with a free-spirited Woodstock artist to create art that combines the rigid rules of firing clay with artistic license. Her father’s family owned a sweater factory in New York. Her mother’s family boasted a long line of rabbis—hence, TV, the telephone, even cooking dinner was off-limits between sundown on Friday and sundown on Saturday. But she always had a penchant for art. “My brother is a Rembrandt scholar, and we have a lot of artists in our family,” says Carol, who even took a millinery class in high school. Rather than work in the family sweater factory, Carol modeled for 10 years. Vidal Sassoon was among her clients. “You’ve got to be tough because you’ve got to carry this big portfolio around New York City. They go through it and either they say, ‘We love you,’ or ‘Thank you very much,’ ” she recalls, pretending to hand the imaginary portfolio back. Carol met Scott while he was in theater. They married in 1968 and moved into a loft on Park Avenue. Once a week, they’d pile into a friend’s car and drive into the country. It was on one of those trips that Carol spotted Woodstock ceramicist Elena Zang “It was the first time I’d seen anybody throw a pot, and I was fascinated by her
Carol Glenn says she doesn’t think her ski helmet is going to fit, anymore—not after reading the words that artistic director Kristin Poole wrote about her in her book, “Carol Glenn.”
long, long hair and the way she worked bare-breasted at the wheel,” Carol recalls. “I thought: Now that I’m married I don’t have to work anywhere. I can do something I want to do. And I loved pottery.” Stoking the fire It was her quest to make pottery that brought Carol to Ketchum in the 1970s for a five-week workshop offered by the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. Ceramicist Jim Romberg, who headed up the program, brought in the best potters in the country, including Tom Coleman, John Glick and Kurt Weiser. “They’d work in front of us and we’d sit there, amazed,” Carol recalls, her expressive face lighting up and her

her favorite Glenn film Asked her favorite movie starring hubby Scott Glenn, Carol Glenn quickly launched into a description of his next movie “Trigger.” A murder mystery, it involves a serial killer. “ ‘Trigger’ refers to what sets him off, not a gun,” Carol explained. She switched gears. “I loved ‘Silverado’—he’s such a sweet guy in that—he wasn’t a bad guy in that one.” “We’ve always had fun with the filming,” she added. “Like with ‘Sucker Punch,’ which he filmed in Canada. We had such a great time traveling to the site, meeting people. I take along a portable watercolor studio—as long as I can work on my paintings, my collages, I do just fine.”

Chairlift Fall Ends Happily Thanks to Safety Pad BY KAREN BOSSICK
t appears that those yellow mattresses around the chairlift poles do more than protect poles from errant skiers who might bash into them! Sun Valley ski patrollers used a safety pad to break the fall of an 8-year-old boy who fell from the Christmas chairlift on Sunday. A ski patroller said the boy appeared to have slid off the chair and managed to cling to it
for about five minutes. A ski patroller saw him dangling over the cat track at the bottom of the chairlift and called for the lift to stop. He and a couple other patrollers quickly unhooked a safety pad from a nearby tower and held it under the boy to break his fall. The boy appeared to fall nearly 40 feet. The adventure didn’t appear to faze the boy. He was up and skiing again on Monday. tws
Sun Valley Named in Top Ten List BY KAREN BOSSICK
e’re the perfect alternative to Colorado’s ritzy resorts. Yet we can ride the lifts with swanky Hollywoodsters in a refined and pretty place, sans fast-food joints and condo sprawl. That’s what Lonely Planet said when it named Sun Valley one of the top 10 places you should visit in 2014. The article appeared on huffingtonpost.com. Sun Valley came in at No. 9, thanks to its abundant camping, hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, cultural events, great food, world-class skiing and Ernest Hemingway’s deep affection for the resort. Notably absent: crowds and lift lines, the article said. “The stunning location is as impressive as the snow and nearby Ketchum retains its authenticity and rustic beauty despite the seasonal deluges,” the article continued. A bit further on, Stanley—which might be the most scenic town in the U.S.—is nestled in the crook of the Salmon River, thus a perfect launch site for killer rafting with the aptly named Sawtooth Mountains providing a dramatic backdrop.” Others on the top 10 list: Grand Rapids, Mich., named the best beer city in the U.S.,
and Lake Michigan’s Gold Coast, which sports 300 miles of sugar-white beaches that some say rival Hawaii’s and Southern California’s. Yosemite National Park, of course. Boston, Mass., which sports Bell in Hand Tavern, the oldest tavern in the U.S. Also, the central California coast, or Highway 1, with its sea lion colonies, Hearst Castle and Big Sur. The Jersey Shore, which is still rebuilding from Hurricane Sandy and the Seaside Heights boardwalk fire. Kansas City, Mo., which has more than 200 fountains—on par with Rome—and more than 100 downright tasty barbecue joints. Lastly, Cumberland Island, Ga., which houses the Carnegies’ Dungeness mansion among its windswept dunes, mossy old oaks, and maritime forest. Las Vegas, which features indoor skydiving when you’re tired of pulling the one-armed bandits, and the world’s tallest observation wheel slated to open in mid2014. And Lanai, Hawaii, the smallest of the Hawaiian Islands and famous for its candy-colored, plantation-style homes, red dirt roads and otherworldly rock formations.

Former Community School teacher Laura Kennedy shared marriage vows with Terry Gale at the Roundhouse on Bald Mountain Saturday. It was three years to the day the couple met at a cocktail party in the Wood River Valley. After six months of long-distance dating, Kennedy moved to

Pasadena to be with Gale. She is teaching at a private school there. “Our first date was skiing on an epic powder day. We return every year to Sun Valley, so we decided this was the ideal place to get married,” said Kennedy. The couple skied Saturday morning, then tied the knot at noon in a ceremony officiated by
Shannon Finnegan—Kennedy’s college roommate. They and eight of their family and friends had a lunch at the Roundhouse afterwards, then took another run as fellow skiers gawked at the snowboarding groom and bride in her white ski outfit, wedding dress-like tutu and helmet veil. tws

Instructions Bring a kettle of water to a boil. In two mugs appropriate for this toddy, add the lemon juice, honey, honey whiskey, tea bags and cinnamon. Pour the hot water over these ingredients and steep the tea for a few minutes. To garnish, stick a few cloves (pointy ends in) through a slice of lemon. Float a clove-studded lemon in each mug and serve. Hint: I believe that our liquor stores now have some of those specially priced airline bottles of honey whiskey or something like that at a very reasonable price—in case you don’t feel like spending the money for a whole bottle.

“Green” New Year’s Resolutions You Might Be Able To Keep
very year we go through the same challenges of trying to keep New Year’s resolutions. Whether we resolve to work out more, eat fewer sweets, get our finances in order, or floss daily, many New Year’s resolutions seem to inevitably fail. Here are five easy “green” resolutions that are both good for you and good for the environment: Try one new organic food – organic foods use fewer pesticides to produce, making them better for your diet and for the environment. Line dry your sheets and towels – by air drying some of your laundry, you can reduce your household energy consumption, which will save you money! Try public transportation one day a month – public transportation cuts down commuter fuel consumption, meaning that you have to fill up your gas tank less often, which will also save you money! Check out http:// www.mountainrides.org/ to find out the Mountain Rides bus schedule. Change one light bulb – switch to an energy-saving LED or compact fluorescent bulb to reduce your household energy consumption (and your monthly electric bill). Drop off your used CFL light bulbs at the ERC or Hailey City Hall for disposal. Get one reusable bag – reduce the amount of plastic bags being consumed by bringing your own reusable bag when shopping. To get rid of plastic bags already cluttering your home, you can drop them off at the ERC (plus Atkinsons’, Albertsons, King’s and L.L. Green Hardware) to be recycled. Post your own green resolutions to Facebook ERC Sun Valley to inspire the rest of us.

ments loose, and never make any commitment to show up at a party or an event when you’re requested to arrive. Stress goes out the window as the minutes tick away. Make sure to make time to do what you love to do each day. If possible, devote two hours in the afternoon to a sound, welcome nap. Don’t be a slave to your phone. Screen your calls and take only the ones which give you delight. Fill your home with the music that you love. Eat what you want in small portions. Laugh until your sides ache. Pay your bills when you have the money – don’t borrow money to pay your debts. Only watch television programs that have no advertising or sponsors. Plan ahead and avoid confrontations. Be kind to your neighbors as they are your first line of defense. Be pleasant, eradicate guilt and worry and take long walks each day. Pay your taxes, face your problems and maintain a positive outlook on life. Pay it forward by doing favors for people you care about before they need them. Enjoy your family, cherish your friends, purify your thoughts and sleep eight to 10 hours a night. Watch your life improve as the pressures of life fade into the mist. Nice talking to you and Happy New Year. tws

kay... all right now... get ready... this is it... it’s time for yet another year in your life. What are your plans? How will this year be different? How will you make it better? What changes will you make to ensure a better life? I believe a better life starts with the reduction of stress and pressure in your everyday activities. Stress and worry begins in the morning when you have to get it together so that you can arrive at work on time. Punctuality should be eliminated in the Wood River Valley. It’s detrimental to your health. The town of Ketchum has been on the right track for years. “Ketchum Time” generally means arriving 10 to 15 minutes late to anyplace you’re supposed to be. I propose to extend that practice to 45 minutes to an hour; thus, forget about rushing to work every morning in rushhour traffic. Take your time, ease on down the road and coast into your work station about an hour late. After eight hours, or about sixish, log out and cruise home without joining the 5 p.m. traffic jam. Work it out with your boss and prove to him how much more efficient you have become because you have eliminated the pressure of being on time. While you’re at it, keep all medical and dental appoint-

Special Film Screening: A Room with a View
As a nod to those travelers who came before us and essentially invented the road trip, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts is screening A Room with a View. The screening is a part of the multidisciplinary project on tourism, Wish You Were Here, and is scheduled to run at 6 p.m., this Tuesday, Jan. 7, at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey. Adapted from E. M. Forster’s 1908 novel, A Room with a View, this award-winning film was produced by Merchant-Ivory in 1985 and stars Helena Bonham Carter, Dame Maggie Smith, Julian Sands and Daniel Day-Lewis. The plot centers on young upper-class English tourists and their quests to see the great sites of Europe. Their travels are also marked by interactions with one another abroad—adventures that continue to influence them once they return to England. Admission is free, but seats should be reserved to guarantee a place at the theatre and can be secured at www.sunvalleycenter.org or 208-7269491.
Pressure Point BY MARGOT VAN HORN
Pressure Point by Dick Couch, Hardback: 287 pages (also out in paperback and eBook by Pocket Books, 427 pages), © 1992
have always had a yen to write a decent short story, so when the College of Southern Idaho offered three classes worth of writing workshops conducted by Dick Couch at The Community Library in Ketchum in December of 2013 for such a reasonable price, I just had to take advantage of the offer. The classes were very instructional and wonderfully conducted. However, I had never read one of Dick Couch’s books, so I got this one fast from The Community Library and read it between the first and second class. Actually, I read it in one day because I couldn’t put it down. So I just had to write a Read It column on this book. What I really liked about this story was that it took place in spots that I was well acquainted with, that it taught me a lot about the Navy SEALs, of which Dick was one, and that the plot was so full of suspense that even though I knew what the outcome would be, I couldn’t let go of the book. Luckily, the high for the day I read it was 2 degrees Fahrenheit with clouds overhead so it was nice to be sequestered in a comfy chair, toy poodle Hugo on lap and book in hand.
This story is really still quite up to date in spite of its debut in 1992 except for a couple of facts that have changed; you really wonder if this could still actually happen. Dick’s personal background takes place as a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and he has served as a Navy SEAL and as a maritime operations CIA case officer. He is a retired naval officer. He has written seven novels and eight nonfiction works as well. He is presently “one of our own” and loves to downhill. His stories are in the genre of Tom Clancy—the kind that keep you on the edge of your chair. With Dick’s own personal and background experience, plus his writing skill, you don’t doubt that what he says has a great deal of validity to it. The story has to do with the theft of a Trident submarine (armed with atomic goodies) by a very smart Arab patriot. It all takes place in the vicinity of Seattle where Dick Couch used to live and, of course, the SEALs are the heroes of the tale. Joe Weber in The New York Times had this to say about Dick’s novel: “A riveting adventure in the classic style... heart-stopping action.” I would totally agree. So, for all of you action seekers out there, women and men, don’t miss out on this fun read. Also, look for Dick’s very latest book, “An Act of Revenge,” out early next year. I can’t wait to read it.

ormer Wood River High School standout Samantha Johnson helped Concordia University capture the school’s first soccer national championship just a couple of weeks ago. Johnson, who is enjoying the Christmas holidays back home in the Wood River Valley with her parents Mark and Ann Johnson, says friends and family in the Wood River Valley had her back all the way. “I grew up with a lot of wonderful supporters—people who were around teaching me to be better. And I felt like they were there right alongside me during my whole college experience,” she said. Johnson, a 5-foot-7 senior, was a key member of the No. 4-seeded Concordia, Ore., Cavaliers defense that blanked the No. 2-seeded Westmont College team from California 1-0 in the championship game in Alabama. With Johnson on the back line, Concordia outscored its postseason opponents 15 to 1 enroute to a 22-1-1 overall record that featured a National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA)-leading 18 shutouts. It was their 18th consecutive win. Johnson was not only selected to the national championship All-Tournament team following the title match but was one of two Cavaliers named as firstteam NAIA All-American. She was named to the 2013 NAIA Women’s Soccer National Championship All-Tournament team. She was also named a 2013 All-American by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. “That’s one of the highest awards an athlete can achieve,” said Johnson. “It means you’re one of the best collegiate players in the country.” Johnson, who transferred to Concordia after two years at Walla Walla Community College, led the team in minutes played this season, starting all 24 games as she racked up 1,992 minutes of playing time. She played all but four minutes in the five Concordia tournament wins. And she played 1,006 minutes for Concordia
during the 2012 season as her team posted 13 shutouts before losing in the NAIA tournament quarterfinals. “Sam’s leadership and high level of play were a critical factor in our team capturing the national championship,” said coach Grant Landy. “From day one this year, she was on a mission to help lead our team back to the national championship.” In fact, Johnson—a team captain—used a book that Ron Von Hagen had given her—basketball player and coach John Wooden’s “Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court” to inspire her teammates. She followed that up with “Coach Wooden’s Pyramid of Success: Building Blocks for a Better Life,” which consists of 32 daily readings. “My teammates and I would hold hands and I’d read a passage and every girl would voice a goal that she wanted to work on during the game. Then we all did the best we could to help each other reach those goals,” said Johnson. “By the end, there was no room for doubt—we knew we were going to win.” Johnson played four seasons at Wood River High School from 2005 through 2008, graduating as the No. 6 all-time leading scorer. She was named team MVP as a junior and senior. The Wolverines set an 18-2-1 season record with 131 goals scored in her senior year. They won the State 4A consolation championship in her junior and senior years. Johnson also won back-to-back NWAACC championships while at Walla Walla. The community college never lost a regular-season game while she was with them. She was named to the NWAACC All-Star team after both seasons. Johnson singles out a number of people in the Wood River Valley for her success. Among them: John Koth, a sports physical therapist who she says was there by her side and her high school team’s side helping her overcome a myriad of injuries. She describes Steve Reynolds as her No. 1 fan—always making
sure she was keeping up on soccer. And she applauds her mother Ann Johnson, who drove her to Boise four times a week during high school to play with the elite Les Bois Soccer Association. “Four times a week she drove me there, pushing me out of the car when I didn’t want to go,” Johnson recalled. Johnson said the game with Westmont that determined the NAIA women’s soccer tournament championship was the most brutal she’d ever played. “We had played them to a 0-0 tie earlier in the season. In the championship game, they had 19 fouls and we had 10. But it was an incredible feeling when we won. This was one of those special teams—we were so tight.” Johnson will graduate in fall 2014 with a degree in exercise sports science. She is considering going on for more schooling to delve into sports psychology. In the meantime, she plans to go to Seattle this summer where she will participate in combines. She also plans to try out for the Portland Thorns, an American professional women’s soccer team, and the Seattle Reign. The teams began play in 2013 in the new eight-team National Women’s Soccer League. Whatever direction her life takes her, she’s happy knowing she’s already achieved an awesome amount of success: “It’s been an overall incredible tws journey and experience.”

hile Sam Johnson was riding on top of the soccer world, another soccer standout with ties to Sun Valley was making her mark on the opinion-editorial pages of USA Today. Sun Valley residents Bill and Jeanne Cassell have racked up plenty of frequent flyer air miles over the past umpteen years flying around the country watching their granddaughter Anna Cassell and her siblings play soccer. But Anna, a junior pre-med student, was recently forced to give up her collegiate soccer career as a goalkeeper at Northwestern University because of concussions. Anna Cassell, who has spent many a summer and Christmas holiday in Sun Valley visiting her grandparents, wrote a piece for USA Today to draw attention to the fact that the dangers of concussions extend beyond the National Football League. “Two summers ago, as my collegiate soccer career was beginning at Northwestern University, I had the privilege of playing against two of the best goalkeepers in the country, Molly Poletto and Emily Oliver. By any reckoning, we were three of the most fearless and hardworking goalkeepers around,

Tops of the Pops BY JAMIE CANFIELD, PROGRAM DIRECTOR, KSKI-FM/KYZK-FM
013 was a great year for music; 2014 promises to be stellar as well, with highly anticipated new albums on the way from U2, Band of Horses, Kaiser Chiefs and a whole lot more. My favorites of 2013 are numerous, but I’ll try to boil them down to a few of note. My top world music album was Rokia Traoré’s Beautiful Africa, an amazing collection of songs from this Mailian songstress. If indie-pop is more your thing, Michael Benjamin Lerner has put another album out under his moniker Telekinesis; Dormarion is a dozen songs of greatness. On the more rockin’ side, Queens of the Stone Age’s ...Like Clockwork might be just what you’re looking for if you like guitar rock with sly wink of intelligence. The Postal Service’s 10th anniversary reissue of Give Up has a bonus disc of new songs, remixes and covers. Pearl Jam’s Lightning Bolt is exactly what you would expect from Pearl Jam; brooding and exquisite. King Krule’s debut 6 Feet Beneath The Moon is a fine mix of electronica and subdued indie-pop and promises a bright future for Londoner Achy Marshall. But as far as debuts go, L.A.’s Haim is near the top of the list; their roots lie deep in the L.A. rock and pop world, and Days Gone By proves they’re headed for great things. Topping the list for the year is Eminem’s The Marshal Mathers LP2; he’s never sounded better (or angrier). Music from 2013 was great--I’m looking forward tws to 2014.
Girls Still Rock Two and a half bees
By Jonathan Kane
nfortunately, I am not the intended audience for the new blockbuster The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Nor have I read the blockbuster trilogy of novels by Suzanne Collins that launched the cultural phenomenon of Katniss Everdeen. But I did see and enjoy the first installment of what will be a four-film cycle and I’d have to say that I enjoyed this one. But to the teenagers I spoke to, especially the girls, the movie totally rocked and was extremely faithful to the novel. So I guess, in a nutshell, that’s all you really need to know. Being the middle section, the story suffers from its position. Its role is to reflect on the first installment and to set up the final installment. Once again we are in the nation of Panem, a shell of North America, and its 12 districts. At the heart of the nation is the decadent capitol (can anyone say Rome?) and its citizenry, being led to distraction by a yearly Hunger Games that pits teenagers from the outlying districts to a Survivor-like duel to the death. But in Catching Fire there is revolution brewing in the hinterlands and its leader appears to be Everdeen (a sensational Jennifer Lawrence). Donald Sutherland returns as the evil king of the empire, and to subject the masses and to eliminate Lawrence, concocts a super-Hunger Games for the nation’s 75th anniversary that will pit past winners against each other. Of course, this is where the action starts after a long buildup. Lawrence and her partner from the first movie, Josh Hutcherson, must battle fog, monkeys and other assorted foes to win the crown. Like the serials of the 1930s, the story leaves you hanging but not for long. Fear not, The Hunger Games will return next year. tws

Born to Ride By Jonathan Kane
evon Sherrerd, a Community School senior carrying a 4.06 grade point average, was born to ride. Horses – that is. That’s probably because she first saddled up when she was two years old. “My mother had always ridden and she wanted me to also. My first horse was a Shetland pony named Princess. We lived in Fairfield then and my earliest memories are of taking care of her and hiking with her in the mountains. We lived near a preserve so there were a lot of great trail rides. Even at a young age I was never afraid except the one time she ran away and galloped home. I was a little nervous to get back on after that incident. When I was about 11 we gave Princess to a family in Boise where she lives in an apple orchard.” Today, Sherrerd competes regularly in hunter-jumper events. “I love horses and they are the passion in my life. I also love the commitment that it takes. It’s not just a one- or two-hour thing because it’s a constant responsibility. You don’t achieve a level and stop – you have to keep working on your skills. In jumping, you have to make sure that the horse looks as good as you, and to have a great bond you really have to work hard. Like a team sport, you have two athletes and they sometimes don’t agree. When it works, you know and feel what they’ll do before they actually do it. It’s a lot different than having a dog because they are an athletic partner and you take care of them and they are completely vulnerable to many things. They’re a big animal and they have so much personality and they become so bonded to you. When they recognize you, it’s really an incredible thing.” Sherrerd first began competing at the age of nine by riding a different pony “and I haven’t stopped riding since.” Her first show was in Elko, Nevada. “I was nervous my first day be-

cause I had never showed before but my pony was a rock-star champion and we finished first in the 2-foot division. I felt so great and that success made me want to do more.” Because of school, it’s been hard for Sherrerd to compete year-round but that will change because she has been accepted to Florida State University and plans to join the riding team there. “This January I’ll be going to Palm Springs for a three-week show, so I’m pretty excited. Otherwise, I compete in three or four shows every summer.” When she can, Sherrerd volunteers at Swiftsure Ranch in Bellevue, which specializes in therapeutic riding for handicapped students. Clients don’t have to pay to have access to horseback riding. “I’ve seen some real miracles happen with some clients. My first memory was amazing. It was a young man about 18 who was completely paralyzed in a car wreck. All he could do was blink his eyes but he reached out and touched my horse’s face and rested his hand there. It’s hard to know the power between horses and humans. It’s just an incredible thing.” tws

Young Entrepreneurs, Artists Honored at Coffee Grinder STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSSICK
ean Petersen’s entire life changed after a climbing accident in 2012 left him in a temporary coma. He suffered a partial hearing loss in one ear, which caused balance problems. And he had trouble linking turns on the ski slopes or staying upright in his kayak. He kept persisting to regain his coordination, though, skiing during winter and rolling his kayak during summer. One of his biggest allies in his fight was woodworking, which helped him regain his motor skills and served as a source of comfort, as he turned bowls on a lathe. Petersen is showing the results of that woodworking—handcrafted bowls up to 22 inches in diameter--at The Coffee Grinder, 4th and Leadville streets in Ketchum. He culled the handcrafted bowls from aspen collected near Stanley and Douglas fir and silver poplar he found out Warm Springs Road. He’s also showing more artsy bowls created from myrtlewood, black locust and pine burls that he has created to hold things like sunglasses. “My brain said I needed something like this to do,” said Petersen who also has The Pink Chef catering business. Petersen was among a handful of artisans honored last week as coffee shop owner Nikki Potts staged a reception for “Emerging Artisans & Entrepreneurs.” “The purpose of this event is to cele-

brate the emergence of talented people, motivated by passion, to make art and business,” said Potts, whose own motto is “Real Coffee, Real Community, Real Purpose.” “These are the real celebrities, in my mind. They are the people that bring the much-desired vitality to our community. And, armed with passion and determination, they create things that give us joy and awe,” she added. Others featured, in addition to Petersen, included freelance photographer Matt Leidecker, who is showing new panoramas of local mountain ranges. The one of the Sawtooths points out little-known features like Huckleberry Wall and Rotten Monolith, in addition to better-known features like Mount Cramer and McDonald Peak. Steve Bonora, who once saved trees as a wildland firefighter, now makes cutting boards and wood bottle openers from the trees he used to protect. He showed off his handmade hardwood spatulas he has sold at the Ketchum Farmers’ Market. They use a variety of woods for a variety of colors, he pointed out. Mahogany, for instance, gives a copper color; Brazilian Purple Heart, a purple/red color; walnut, black; and maple, blond.

Fishing R epoRt THE “WEEKLY” FISHING REPORT FOR JAN. 1 FROM PICABO ANGLER
festive holiday week continues with perfect fishing weather for fly anglers. Expect temps above freezing and great action on the Big Wood, Big Lost and Silver Creek. This may also be a good week to explore the South Fork of the Boise. Midges are the only game in town right now and both wet and dry may be options. If you fish the nymph, try Zebra Nymphs, Zug Bugs, and Brassies. Sizes 16, 18 and 20 are appropriate. Fish Red, Black and Copper colors. Fishing these nymphs in tandem is a great way to go. Tie on a size 16 fly to your 9 foot 4X leader. Then tie 18 inches of 5X to the hook shank and complete this rig with a size 18 nymph on the bottom. Use two different colors and fish them under a strike indicator. Set your indicator at 1½ times the water depth and try to fish long waist, to thigh deep riffles and runs. This is a great set up on the South Fork, Big Wood and Lost. Be sure to have a selection of dry Midges as well. The Griffiths Gnat and Tie Down Midge are two of our favorites and they may be rigged the same as the nymphs, with eh Gnat in front and the smaller Midge dropped behind. Fish these only to fish rising on the natural. Don’t try to prospect the rivers with this set up. If you come on down to Silver Creek plan on mostly fishing Streamers. Non-weighted flies are the norm, or a bead head streamer generally have plenty of weight for the deeper spots. Fish these flies on 9 foot 2X leaders. Fluorocarbon, although more expensive, is a great idea for the big toothy Brown Trout! The warm days this past week broke all the ice out of the lower Creek so there is plenty of open water to fish right now. Waterfowl hunters continue do well on Silver Creek as northern birds continue to show up in the valley. The light amount of snow in the Silver Creek valley has made it possible for ducks and geese to feed in the fields and they seem to be sticking around longer than a typical winter. Upland hunters continue to enjoy snow free ridge lines and are they are seeing quite a few coveys in the Picabo hills.

Conservation Easements Achieving Goals BY WENDELL CAYTON
ot many things can drive a stake through the heart of a family business or farm like the death of the owner followed by a huge estate tax bill. An estate tax return and tax payment due 9 months from date of death, unless extended, can force the unwanted sale of the business, or in the case of a farm, piecemeal land sales. Once parcelization of farm or ranch land begins, it often becomes impossible to stop as it cuts into the ability of the landowner to make a living from the land, leaving selling the property as the only way out. One solution is to put a conservation easement on the property. A conservation easement is a charitable contribution of certain property interests of farm, ranch, other open lands or a building of historical significance to qualified organizations acting in the public good. While the owner gives up some rights, such as selling smaller parcels for real estate development, or in the case of a historical building, changing the façade, the owner retains the rights to continue to use the property, consistent with an agreement with the qualified organization. The qualified organization, such as a land conservancy trust, is tasked with the responsibility to work with the landowner to insure that the property is used correctly and managed for the purposes intended. In exchange for giving up certain rights, the landowner receives a charitable deduction

not just an actor’s wife, from page 1 hands waving in the air as she described what she remembered. While learning to make porcelain platters, Carol learned to paint from plein air painter Ted Villa, whose work is featured at Broschofsky Galleries. Over the years, she has even painted with brushes made from a skunk tail a friend cut off when they spotted a dead skunk on the way to Twin Falls. “Jim Romberg advised me to practice painting on paper before I put it on clay—once you put paint on clay, you don’t get it off. Ted would take eight of us out in the woods. The rest of the painters would be trying hard to make every line count. Me being abstract, I went ‘Whoosh, whoosh. Okay, I’m finished,’ ” she recalls, her hands making sweeping brushstrokes through the air. Carol brought her husband and two daughters to Sun Valley from Los Angeles. She also convinced Patricia Hanwright, the wife of a movie director, to move here to escape the pollution in the Los Angeles area. They set up the Good Medicine Pottery Studio in Ketchum’s light industrial zone. The loft studio, with its crazy-shaped windows facing Baldy, soon attracted all kinds of artists, including singer Carole King. Glenn did her paintings and pottery while Hanwright sculpted American Indians. That studio sufficed for 15 years until a local Realtor told Carol about a studio adjacent to a steel and concrete house tucked away in the woods in Gimlet. “I am so lucky I have such a great husband,” Carol says. “We were having our 25th anniversary and Scott said, ‘I want to get you something really special.’ He was thinking about a ring, but I said, ‘I’m not really a jewelry person.’ I said, ‘Honey, how about a house?’ ” The house, built by a bachelor for parties, is an adult house--perfect for a couple whose children have grown, she adds. “Some of my black and white paintings were inspired by that house – I’m driven by it. And it offers plenty of spaces for me to hang paintings. Every other house we’ve had was log and you can’t hang paintings on log walls.” The “Ghost “ in the room Carol looks around her studio with its 30-foottall ceiling, its window looking out onto the towering mountain slopes overlooking Gimlet, and its walk-in closet housing some of her giant-sized paintings. A couple studio chairs from Scott’s movies—“The Hunt for Red October” and “Journey to the End of the Night”—sit out around the coffee table. Clay sculptures created by her grandchildren ages 11, 8 and 4 sit next to the kiln, interspersed with her own pottery. The paint-splashed linoleum, where the grandchildren ride their bikes, is due to be replaced soon, she says. Her daughters, their husbands and the grandchildren are staying upstairs during the Christmas holidays. It was here that Demi Moore, who has long had a home in the valley, practiced throwing pots for her sensual potter’s scene with Patrick Swayze in the movie “Ghost.” “Who knew it was going to be so huge!?” says Carol, her dark expressive eyes getting even bigger as she emphasizes her point. “I think she showed the world how cool making pottery could be.” The association with Demi proved invaluable when Carol went to China in August to shepherd the printing of her book. “Scott was supposed to have gone. But, as deputy sheriff, he didn’t want to leave with the Beaver Creek Fire just starting. So, everybody was like, ‘Where’s the movie star?’ They were a little disappointed. Then one young woman looked through my book and Demi’s name popped out at her. We have a saying that when people see celebrities they spaz out. And she went nuts!” As if on cue, Scott Glenn sashays into the studio to pick up a book he’s offered to deliver to one of Carol’s admiring fans. The analytical theater pro in him immediately wants to know where the reporter in his midst got her accent. Then, he offers praise on his wife’s behalf. “I think at long last people are going to realize she’s the real artist in the family,” he says. “Actors everywhere should kiss Thomas Edison’s feet because before he figured out how to reproduce performance, we were at the bottom of the rung,” he adds as an afterthought. Working with clay is a “very Zen” thing for Carol as she moves from the throwing to the fire to the glaze, always holding her breath that the piece won’t explode, crack, or buckle in the kiln. “You learn the techniques. Then you enjoy what you do,” she says. “When I’m throwing a pot, it just happens. Each time I have no idea what is going to happen so I have to love each part. When it comes out and it’s not what I thought it was going to do, I have to be so quick not to judge. Maybe a week later, I’ll say, ‘You know, it’s not so bad.’ ” One of Carol’s first clients—in 1981—was Burt Lancaster, who already had a line of Picasso ceramics. Carol made dinnerware for him in the communal kiln at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. Donna Karan, who has visited her Gimlet studio many times, also has some of her dinnerware. “People might say, ‘Wow,’ but that’s what happens when you’re in the movie business. We were with Burt in the worst part of Mexico so we hung

Black pieces were strung along the wall to look like constellations. It was a bit overwhelming at the time, Carol says, “But I’m hoping we can hang them again somewhere. Finding her voice The genesis for the book started when local photographer Kirsten Shultz, who took photos for Cristina’s cookbooks, took photos for a magazine article on Glenn. Eventually, Shultz’s husband Drew Furlong, a graphic designer, came on board, as did editor Karen Oswalt. “I did it because I thought I’d like my grandkids to know what I’ve done. The bar was raised when the others got involved,” Carol says. Carol spent hours with Furlong and Shultz figuring out what angles would best display her works. Shultz and Furlong planned the shoots and design around Carol’s stories, which she read to them as they worked. “We were always moved by her actual voice, even the inflection. We wondered: How can we do these stories justice? What can we do to make this book as beautiful as her stories?” Schultz relates. The book captures the reader’s attention immediately. For one, the inside jacket cover is blank. The first image the reader sees is that of clay-covered fingers curled around a piece of pottery that evokes thoughts of cookie dough. “Glenn seems to intuitively know when to stop, when to stop throwing and when to leave the mark slightly off-kilter,” writes Kristin Poole, artistic director for the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, as she praises Glenn for respecting the quality of the clay. “I started writing, which I didn’t know I could do. I was so thrilled—it was just my memories,” says Carol. “What’s great about Karen is it’s really me, it’s really my voice. She just cleaned it up. We tried to keep it simple. When we started, I had no idea it would turn out so beautiful.” That said, Carol didn’t give any copies to her grandchildren this Christmas. “I asked one if he wanted me to sign a copy of the book for him and I got a blank stare. I said, ‘I think I should wait and give them a copy when they’re older when they understand what it’s all about.’ ” Now, Carol is considering another book. “I had such a great time doing this book, I thought maybe I’ll do another one talking about my paintings, talking about my adventures traveling and how they contributed to my paintings.” tws

Beaver Creek Fire Retrospective Editor’s note: As we say goodbye to 2013, we take a look back at the year’s biggest event:
STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
Greenhorn Gulch took on an orange glow.
Helicopters made rounds every three moments trying to put out the Greenhorn fire.
Even light rain brought mudslides on after the fire.
s Dan and Martine Drackett stared in the rear-view mirror, they resigned themselves to the idea that they might never again see the elegant home they’d built in 1999 out of Vermont barn wood. “We looked in the mirror as we drove past Friedman Memorial Airport and it looked like there were three volcanoes erupting where our house was,” Dan recalled. The Beaver Creek Fire, which wrapped around the Wood River Valley in mid-August, chased thousands of Wood River Valley residents from their homes, including the Dracketts whose home lies in the Greenhorn neighborhood a few miles south of Ketchum. The fire, which destroyed 111,000 acres—more than twice that of the 48,000-acre Castle Rock Fire in 2007—hadn’t alarmed the Dracketts at first. They were preparing for two parties—a fundraiser for the Wood River YMCA and a barbecue for the Sun Valley Summer Symphony musicians--in the outdoor pavilion back of their home. “Everyone kept saying, ‘It’s smoky, but it’s over there,’” Dan recalled. “But we have several phone lines in our house and on Aug. 15 all of them started ringing at once, telling us we had to evacuate immediately. We boarded our dogs, crossed our fingers and left.” The single lightning strike that started the Beaver Creek Fire around midnight of Aug. 7 in a forested area west of Hailey didn’t initially attract the sense of urgency of other lightning strikes that had grown into fires threatening farms near Fairfield. But within days the Beaver Creek Fire was lapping at the edge of campgrounds in Deer Creek Canyon and marching toward the residences lining canyons north of Hailey. On Thursday, Aug. 15, Incident Commander Beth Lund paced the dusty ground in the fire camp that had been established in a field on Buttercup Road. She watched as the fire climbed relentlessly up the slopes lining Deer Creek and crested the hill overlooking Greenhorn Gulch. “Not a good day. You have an angry fire here,” she muttered to a reporter standing nearby. Hundreds of onlookers lined the bike path at East Fork Road watching the ferocious aerial attack on Greenhorn that ensued. With 50 significant wildfires raging throughout the West, Lund had been lucky to snag a DC 10 Very Large Air Tanker that could drop 12,000 gallons of retardant in a single swoosh. But that tanker had barely gotten started when it had to be taken out of the fight and grounded for two days after losing its No. 2 engine. Helicopters continued the assault, dipping water out of the ponds in Golden Eagle. “That aircraft probably saved a lot of homes in Greenhorn,” said Ketchum Fire Chief Mike Elle. “Every single fire engine was washed with red retardant.”
A wall of flames

flames underneath shot a hundred feet into the air. The fire moved in the face of the winds, defying normal fire behavior. Strong winds were sucked into the base feeding the fire. Firefighters gasped as they saw a wall of flames a quarter-mile wide. They had already done triage, digging a fire line 1.5 miles long at the base of the mountain lining the Greenhorn neighborhood and helping homeowners move wood piles and propane tanks away from homes. Now, firefighters spilled out of 10 fire trucks and rolled out hoses around the multi-million-dollar homes lining the road as the fire closed in on the Greenhorn trailhead. “All we could think was, ‘Uh-oh, we’ve got a problem,’ ” recalled Elle. “With the Castle Rock Fire, we had three days to roll out hoses around the homes. That’s how far behind we were. Our resources were just stretched so thin.” Each pine that caught on fire created its own weather. Mini-tornadoes created by the fire sent burning branches flying through the air causing spot fires elsewhere as winds were sucked toward a fire whirl hundreds of feet high. “It was the most intense fire behavior I’ve seen in 24 years,” said firefighter Vaughn Palmer. By morning light, only one house had been lost—its wood shingles a siren call for the conflaguration that reduced it to a chimney. “It ended up being a really successful story about fighting fire in really severe conditions,” said firefighter Jeremy Bailey. “And we were lucky that the homes there were on the valley floor with green grass around them—there would have been nothing anyone could have done had the homes been situated mid-slope. We wouldn’t have even sent firefighters to try to save them.” But the fire was far from over. It continued its march—up Timber Gulch, where flames seemed to taunt residents of Cold Springs and Gimlet below and down the hills overlooking Highway 75 toward Hailey. Patti Reed, who had planned a summer patio party the night of Aug. 16, kept fielding calls from partygoers. “Yes, it’s still on—I haven’t been evacuated yet,” she said, determined to have her party. But as she and a friend took a walk to catch their breaths, she saw one of the pines that towered over her home in Gimlet catch on fire from an ember that had flown off a tree burning on a ridgeline a half-mile away across the highway. “The firefighters stationed in our neighborhood saw it, too. They were there within a minute and put it out right away—and they complimented me on having fire-resistant architectural-grade asphalt on my roof, rather than shake shingles,” Reed recalled. “Of course, we never did get to have the party. We were evacuated shortly afterwards. I went to my girlfriend’s in the Della View neighborhood of Hailey and we were there an hour before we had to evacuate again.” As evening fell, one man set up a lawn chair in the dusty parking lot at the end of Buttercup Road to watch the fire march down the highway. Evacuees took up positions on hillsides overlooking Hailey’s Woodside neighborhood to watch the fire crest Carbonate Ridge and continue its onslaught into Croy Canyon. Volunteers evacuated animals from the animal shelter and nearby ranches. The highway was clogged with
January 1, 2014
truckloads of artwork being evacuated to safer venues and with valley residents fleeing to Twin Falls, Boise, Hagerman, Stanley and even Yellowstone National Park as the Beaver Creek Fire overnight became the top priority fire in the nation. “We were seeing fire behavior that you just don’t see at night,” said Elle, noting that fire usually lays down at night. “Carbonate, Croy Canyon—all that happened at night. That’s why we had to wake firefighters up—because everything happened so fast we didn’t have enough men to staff the night shift.”
An anxious homecoming
After a week’s respite in Montana, the Dracketts made their way back home via Challis and Stanley. They drove past fire trucks and water stations at Baker Creek where firefighters were still fighting the north flank of the fire. When they got to Ketchum, they stopped for dinner at Enoteca. “We thought it might be easier to come home in the dark and survey the damage the next morning,” Dan recalled. At dawn’s first light, they saw the burnt fence posts that surrounded their home, the blackened hillside, 63 trees that had been lost in their expansive yard. “But we were relieved to see how much was intact. Not only was our house intact but our close-up view is as interesting as it’s always been,” said Dan. “We had done everything we could beforehand. We had moved our woodpile. We were surrounded by meadow, which is much less flammable than sagebrush. And we had mowed down that meadow. All that made our house very defensible. In fact, the firefighters gave us an A-plus for defensibility.” Even as firefighters continued to fight the fire, rehabilitation specialists moved into Greenhorn Gulch scrubbing smoky homes, repairing burnt fences, hosing down fire retardant and removing soot that blew over the road from a wildlife refuge that had been scorched. AIG handed Dan Drackett a check to replace trees, reseed acreage damaged by the fire and fell dead trees on the hillside, laying them perpendicular to the fall line. Actor Bruce Willis, whose home was square in the midst of the Carbonate Ridge inferno, treated firefighters to dinner. Diners rose from their tables, offering a standing ovation when a dozen firefighters walked into the Pioneer Saloon. And Wood River Valley resident Pam Bailey bought a bunch of wraps and went out looking for firefighters to give them to as an acknowledgement of her gratitude for firefighters who had contained the fire to 173 square miles—the size of Albuquerque or San Jose. “They’re amazing heroes,” she said. Then the unthinkable happened. A couple weeks after the fire was corralled, a ferocious lightning storm that some weather observers called “a oncein-a-century storm” dumped nearly an inch of rain on the area in an hour’s time. Raindrops bounced off the soil, which had been baked like a cake. Mud-like avalanches slid off the hills sending mud the consistency of Hershey’s syrup mixed with silt and ash spilling across people’s lawns, clogging irrigation ditches and creeping into some homes.

The mud carried a motorcycle away. It swept a homeowner off his feet as he tried to dismantle a log pile to keep it from ramming into his home. “It was incredible--like the Mississippi Delta all around our home,” said Martine Drackett. A river ran through Bill Potter’s house. Mud filled his 10-foot-tall underground garage, forcing its way onto the first floor of his house. And firefighters were called to a flood in Greenhorn—water that had risen nine inches in less than 45 minutes—even as they were called on to put out a lightning-sparked fire near Boundary Creek where the sun was shining, said Elle.
A nervous future
The Beaver Creek Fire followed a dry winter and an even drier summer in which streams in Greenhorn Gulch had dried up by July. By the time the Beaver Creek Fire ignited, other forests in southern Idaho were already on fire. Eighty structures—half of them summer homes—had been destroyed in Fall Creek near the South Fork of the Boise River as fire went on to burn a thousand square miles in southern Idaho. “I can’t recall ever having to worry about forest fires when I was young. We didn’t even have smoke from other fires,” recalled Mary Jane Conger, whose grandfather was among the first settlers in the Wood River Valley. Even though previous fires failed to stop the fire that marched across the forest near Pine and Featherville, the Castle Rock Fire stopped the Beaver Creek Fire dead in its tracks, said Bailey. “A smokejumper told me if he had had one more smokejumper when the Castle Rock Fire started, the Castle Rock Fire wouldn’t have taken off like it did. I told him, ‘Good thing you didn’t have that smokejumper,’ “ Bailey added. The Forest Service did aerial seeding of the Greenhorn area in November as the first snows fell. But Ketchum District Ranger Kurt Nelson cautions that it will take about three years for hillsides to reestablish themselves. The dry winter thus far means less chance of damage from snow run-off even as it means a heightened chance of more fire later in the summer. But Dan Drackett is optimistic. Greenhorn homeowners worked with Galena Engineering to send a drone over the valley to document contour lines and water runoff so they could build berms to prevent future water damage without accidentally diverting mud and water into a neighbor’s property should another downpour or mudslide occur. And the homeowners have already reseeded 40 acres of common ground. “I just feel so fortunate that we still have our home,” said Martine Drackett. “The firefighters were exceptional.” tws

Ask the Guys
Dear Classified Guys, While most people are toasting with eggnog at their office parties, I'm singing the blues. It turns out I work for Scrooge! I put in extra hours almost every week this year and worked harder than ever before. I didn't mind because I thought my boss rewarded hard work. When the bonus checks came around this season, there wasn't much of a reward. You could say my check was made from coal dust. It has me making a New Year's resolution to never let it happen again. Even though the employment ads are a bit thin this time of year, I've been scanning them ever since I got my check. A few have caught my interest and I plan on interviewing with them. I don't mind working hard, but I want to find someone who will reward it come holiday time. Is there any way to tell if I'll be working for one of Scrooge's relatives at a new company?
• • • Cash: You could hope that the three ghosts of Christmas will visit your boss, but you probably shouldn't bank on it. Carry: While you may be disappointed, it is possible that your

boss is not Ebenezer Scrooge. Depending on the size of your company, the decision for a bonus check may not even be his to make. Cash: If this is a larger company, it could be that managers in a higher position make the decision. For many companies, bonus checks are often a percentage of salary or based on management levels. Carry: Now if this is a small company where your boss is the owner, finances could limit him if the company didn't perform as expected. Cash: Before you lose your Christmas spirit from a check made of coal, consider talking with your boss. If a financial
reward isn't possible, maybe he could compensate for your additional efforts with alternatives such as more vacation time or flexible work hours. Carry: Then next year, you won't mind as much when you receive your bonus check on vacation! Cash: If you still plan on looking for a new job, know that it may be difficult to foresee how a company will act at the holidays. After all, they do call it a "bonus check" for a reason. Carry: Remember though, your best opportunity for an increase in salary is to negotiate it at the time you're hired. That way there won't be any disappointments when it comes to the holidays.
What would Christmas be without the story of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens? First published in1844, the story took Dickens about six weeks to complete. Desperately in need of money, he hoped the royalties of the book would help his financial crisis. Despite the book's success, selling out the entire run of 6,000 on the first day, Dickens made little money. Today his original manuscript of the book resides at Pierpont Morgan Library in New York City and is typically on display around the holidays.
Every year, many companies treat their employees to an office Christmas party. It's one of the few times a year when all levels of staff have the opportunity to mingle and socialize. However, for some the party can break their career. Surveys suggest that about 15% of all office parties have employees with inappropriate behavior. The experts advise that moderation is best during the festivities, dressing appropriately and keeping your eating and drinking in check. After all, no one wants to be the next day's conversation at the water cooler.
Reader Humor Deal Maker
When the purchasing manager of my company quit, the president was quick to hire a deal-making genius in his place. Whether it was secretarial supplies or computer equipment, this guy knew how to find amazing prices. Recently at our weekly meeting, our boss once again congratulated our new purchasing manager on his ability to save money when buying the Christmas cards. "Thank you," the manager said. "I got them at next to nothing because the printer made a typo." "That's great," the president replied. "But I don't think we should send cards to our clients that say, 'Merry Christmas and Best Dishes!'" (Thanks to Jenn K.)
