Leaning Toward The Light BY ROSEMARY CODY

C

hinese medicine invites us to embrace and celebrate paradox. Winter, in this ancient healing tradition, is associated with kidney energy, the water element. It is the darkest, coldest, the most restricted season—and also contains the beginning of light and warmth and expansion. Our kidneys are our deepest, most protected organs. Their purpose, in this season, is to direct our energy down to our core, down to our most essential resources. And although darkness and depth remind us of loneliness and isolation, this energy actually holds our most primal genetic material, our DNA, our link with ancestors and future generations. At this level, where life begins, we are deeply connected. We are all different—and all the same. We are not alone. This is the coldest season, the most frigid element. And yet the area between the kidneys houses the Ming Men Fire, the “pilot light” point in acupuncture, the “gate of vitality.” Activating this point, with an acupuncture needle or by simply keeping your low back warm and protected, sparks our will and determination—and warms all of our essential biological processes. Kidney energy is associated with our bones. It takes us down to the bones, like winter trees stripped of adornment, storing life force for its explosion of growth in the spring. Says author Wallace Stevens: “After the leaves have fallen, we return to a plain sense of things.” We find our essence. The emotions that may be provoked at this season are fear and anxiety, the most primitive emotions of survival. The paradox is this: Courage follows fear. The courage to take the next step is present, even when we aren’t aware of it. Black, often reminding us of endings or death, is the associated color of this cycle. But black is actually the absorption of all light. Without light, there is no darkness. From darkness, light returns. Light is reflected, restored, recreated, and reborn. Reeverything starts here. In the unsettling darkness of winter our eyes are forced to adjust. We see the light in the shadows. We find our courage. In the silence, our ability to hear is heightened. In the stillness, we hear the still small voices that guide us. We begin to sense that all of life is a dynamic dance between light and darkness. We begin to be empowered by the words of author/mythologist Joseph Campbell: “Every act in life yields pairs of opposites in its results. The best we can do is lean toward the light.” Keep leaning. Keep choosing the light. Rosemary Cody is a licensed acupuncturist with offices in Hailey and Ketchum. She can be reached at tws 720.7530.

Full House Toasts Fools and Center’s Union STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

A

scroll hung from the ceiling of The Liberty Theater lobby to the floor Wednesday night as Company of Fools and the Sun Valley Center for the Arts celebrated their merger. “Once upon a time,â€? its handwritten script said, “two organizations—Company of Fools and the Sun Valley Center for the Arts—bumped into each other on their respective paths. Having bumped—they decided to sit down and dream and wish about joining to create fantastical art for their community. “They were so inspired by these dreams that they stood and started walking forward— talking all the way as if they were walking down an aisle toward an altar. How will this story end? And what does this story mean?â€? Inside, leaders of the two organizations continued the story as they told of the fairytale that they hope will have one of those “happily ever afterâ€? endings. “We’re a little excited on this—our wedding day,â€? said Fools’ core artist John Glenn. Denise Simone, the Fools’ other core artist, recited how her theater group began with she and Glenn, Community School teacher Joel Vilinsky and a few others in a Richmond, Va., garage that they converted into a studio in May 1992. The Fools moved west in 1996 to take advantage of a theater offered by Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, both of whom have given their blessing to the new union. “As we pulled out of the driveway in the fall of 1996 I looked over at my then-five-year-old daughter Russell and said ‘Go to your U.S. puzzle and get Mommy the Idaho piece,’ â€? Simone recalled, looking at her daughter, who is now a college student. There are rich rewards to be gained when two groups of artists with the same point of view and the same attitude towards life come together, she added. “By merging, we feel confident that the Company of Fools will have a legacy and will continue changing and reinventing itself,â€? said Glenn. “Magic‌ splendor‌ mystery‌ the opportunity to challenge ourselves‌ That’s what we hope. That’s how we want to build this organization,â€? said Kristin Poole, who noted she began working for The Center in 1983—“when only a handful of you in this theater were around.â€? Dozens of artists, movers and shakers of the arts community and government leaders filled the theater, which was festooned

with balloons of all sizes, along with tables of hors d’oeuvres and fancy cookies. Even Shelley Preston, former trails coordinator for the Blaine County Recreation District, was there, visiting from her home in the San Juan Islands where she is now a teacher. Michael Faison, who heads up the Idaho Commission on the Arts, told the audience that the not-for-profit arts constitutes a $135 billion industry in the country. The merger makes The Center and the Fools the biggest not-forprofit arts organization in the state out of more than 60 such arts organizations, he added. “Arts are economic drivers,� he said. “And the artists—the actors, artists, musicians, etc. —tell the stories that will resonate so future generations will know where we’ve come from. That only gets better when two organizations like this become one.� Faison said after the presentation that economics usually are the driving factor that initiates such mergers. But marriages based strictly on economics don’t work. You need two organizations with similar values and similar quality for it to work, he said. “Here we have two extraordinary quality arts organizations,� he added. “Bring all these minds together and they will come up with so much more than a single mind could conceive.� Beth Hilles, who has starred in a couple of Fools plays, said she supported the merger, happy to see that the Fools will not shrink in difficult economic times. Edith Wiethorn, who worked for the Sun Valley Center from 1975 to 1981 when it was a small arts campus that attracted students from all over the country, called the merger “a beautiful dream come true.� “The person that should be here is Glenn Janss,� she said of The Center’s founder. “Glenn always had this overarching vision, and this fulfills that.� Tewa Evans took advantage of the occasion to plug her idea for something that would focus on the Native American story of the Wood River Valley. “That’s the background of our beautiful valley,� said Evans, who traces her own roots to the Iroquois tribe. “I did a premiere for ‘Dances with Wolves’ in the Caribbean in 1992 and I’m in touch with a lot of wonderful Native American artists. So I could easily help bring many of them to our valley.� tws

“Artists‌tell the stories that will resonate so future generations will know where we’ve come from.â€? –Michael faison, idaho commission on the arts

t’s a familiar story—an elderly woman develops Alzheimer’s, forcing her family to figure out how to deal with it. Hopefully, Kenneth Lonergan’s play, “The Waverly Gallery,� will offer some insights. The nexStage Theatre will present a free reading of the play at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 15 at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Kathy Wygle portrays the Greenwich gallery owner who develops dementia. Dawson Howard, Keith Moore, Rick Hoffman and Patsy Wygle portray her grandson, son-in-law, son and daughter. The poignant and funny story explores the maternal matriarch’s fight to retain her in-

dependence and the subsequent effect of her decline on her family, especially her grandson. The woman in the play was inspired by Lonergan’s own grandmother. “It’s a brilliant play, beautifully written. And even though it’s a very serious subject, it’s also very funny, as some of these things can be,� said Director Jon Kane. “Time Out New York� wrote that the play—one of only three written by Lonergan—it is “one of the most attractively modest, deeply poignant and even strangely comic works New York has seen in a long time.� The show runs for nearly two hours. Complimentary refreshments will be served in the lobby before the show and during intermission. tws

nce in Be’er Sheva, I checked into a small, Jewish-family-ownedand-operated bed and breakfast and immediately left to explore the life of the Old Town. What I found was a vibrant, cosmopolitan, friendly, colorful, stylish little city center, a great relief from the dusty, inert modernity of the New Town. A wide, bustling street (K.K.Le Israel) was closed to traffic. It was lined with cafés, small parks and shops. The streets were alive with welldressed people and well-stocked department stores. Birds chattered in the palm trees. Families were out in numbers having fun. Couples were everywhere, and the military presence was minimal. The strolling crowds were primarily Jewish. The Palestinians lived on the fringes. The segregation was primarily economic. The signs of political apartheid were also evident. The Palestinians had to have separate I.D.s and different license plates, and their freedom of movement was restrained. Turkey also uses this type of separatism against the Kurds, who have been involved in a civil war against the Turkish military for the last 30 years. Cars with Israeli license plates were often targeted. Some members of our team of journalists went to visit a monastery in the Negev. They were the only visitors there. On their exit, they found their rented Budget vehicle’s windows smashed in and the contents missing or ransacked. I left the hubbub and headed for the edge of town, to the native marketplace typical of the Middle East and Central Asia, the bazaar. Markets like this are great for local color. The merchandise is basic household goods, some street food, area rugs, clothes, nowadays audiotapes, CDs and videos and blaring music, from Electronica to Yemeni folk tunes. A lot of the young Palestinians spoke English and were eager to talk when they saw the camera and the notebook. My Nikon was mounted on a triggered gunstock, and that, too, was an attention-getter; it had that aura of armed rebellion that played well here with the young. The Palestinians wanted to be heard and believed, to get their message out. The Israeli authori-

Valerie Skonie, founder and spiritual director of Winter Feast for the Soul, will introduce this year’s Feast and offer a guided meditation at 6 p.m. Thursday at The Community Library. This year’s Winter Feast will be held from Jan. 15 through Feb. 23. People will gather in small groups in private homes to meditate for 40 days with the idea that what they do in that time will become habit. There will be guided daily practice sessions with teachers from an array of spiritual paths, including Christian, Jewish, and Buddhist, during the 40day event.

ties, like those of Turkey, wanted to keep the message in, uncirculated. A common survival tactic was to put the sign ‘Journalist’ in the window to keep the car safer, and then hide it when leaving town toward a checkpoint. I bought a small 2-foot-by-5-foot flat-weave area rug and had a conversation with the seller, who lamented his lot. He said, “After I finish my studies in Hebrew University, I’ll have to leave my family and move to Jordan. A lot of us are going there. Two of my brothers were killed a few weeks ago. I don’t know whether I’ll be happy in Jordan, but I have to risk it.” I bought one other item, the Palestinian headdress, the kafiyeh, a checkered cotton cloth in red or black, wrapped around the head and anchored with a black coil, and started to wear it everywhere. I donned it the following morning in the Inn’s dining

room. The elderly Jewish lady came to take my order, and she was visibly shaken by the sight. I explained that I was an American and meant nothing by it, but it made her visibly uncomfortable, so I stashed it in the photo bag. I now had two identities to juggle. Clearly, the coexistence of the Iraelis and the Palestinians in this seemingly harmonious town was tenuous at best. This highlights another point. Clothes are identity statements, cultural patents, a symbol of group identity and, if need be, a defiance of discrimination. The clothes we wear can be powerful counter-cultural assertions, be it Muslim schoolgirls in France, or American urban hip-hop. Today, 25 years after my visit, during periods of unrest in Gaza, Be’er Sheva is targeted with rocket attacks. The aura of a peaceful oasis has been shattered. tws

Ice Skating Offers Diversion From Skiing STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

I

t sits in the shadow of Baldy—Sun Valley’s premiere ski mountain. But the outdoor ice rink that spans an area the size of a soccer field is plenty busy, even with all the skiers schussing the mountain. Young boys play a game of pick-up hockey with their dads while a woman practices twirling on figure skates. A couple of youth sail across the ice pushing chairs as they learn how to balance on quarter-inch blades. And a group of elementary school children cavort in a game of tag, chasing one another right off the ice onto a pile of snow 25 yards beyond the ice rink. Christina Potters Ice Rink, which sits next to Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum, resembles a scene out of a Norman Rockwell painting as the sun streams down on a hundred skaters enjoying the free skating. “I haven’t found a larger outdoor non-refrigerated ice rink in the Northwest,� said John Kearney, recreation supervisor for the Ketchum Parks and Recreation Department. “It’s really popular in low snow years when Sun Valley struggles to open all its ski runs.� Kearney said he and two crew members begin building a 7-inch-thick sheet of ice, which they maintain with a Zamboni, as soon as snow falls on the field. “If we start spraying the grass, you get a dark surface and the ice melts quicker,� he said. Each person takes a five-hour shift from 5 p.m. until 9 a.m. for five evenings in a row, saturating the snow with giant fire hoses and letting it freeze. They always strive to keep it open through Presidents’

Day weekend. Longer days and warmer temperatures make it difficult to keep it open longer, Kearney said. “Ten degrees is optimal freezing conditions. Warmer than 20 degrees it doesn’t freeze quick enough,� he added. Former Ketchum Parks and Recreation Department Supervisor Kirk Mason started the ice program in 1996 as an afterschool activity for Hemingway Elementary School students. But some skaters are doing laps around the 240-by-170-foot rink by 9 each morning. And others often play hockey after work, lighting the rink with their car headlights. “It’s beautiful under the full moon,� said Kearney. An estimated 4,000 people— both locals and out-of-towners—use the rink during a single winter. They can warm up with a game of foosball, Ping-Pong or pool in the adjacent recreation center while enjoying cocoa at the snack shack. In addition to free skating, the Recreation Department provides free hockey and figure-skating skates ranging up to men’s size 13. It also offers free helmets, hockey sticks and pucks donated by individuals whose children have outgrown their equipment and Sun Valley Junior Hockey and other programs. Jeff Goldstein has been skating on the Ketchum rink since he was 10, eventually going on to play junior on the youth hockey team. “The quality of the ice and facilities has improved as they invest more time and resources into it,� said Goldstein, who works in China but was home for the holidays this year. The Ketchum Parks and Recreation Department and Blaine County Recreation District will host the annual Idaho Pond

Yameson Delacruz, 8, doesn’t let the boundaries of the ice rink stop him from skating across the snow and up a pile of snow plowed off the sidewalk.

Hockey Classic Jan. 19 and 20 at the rink. Teams of six will play four-on-four in a double-elimination tourney as they try to shoot pucks into small holes set in plywood. Donations for beer and bratwurst go toward the youth recreation programs (go to bcrd. org for more information). One sunny but cold afternoon Judy Fillmore watched her grandson Ben Reeder play hockey with his father, Todd. “It’s amazing what these small little places can do if someone gets the idea. You don’t see this kind of thing in big cities,� she said. “And not to have to pay when ice time can be so expensive—that’s amazing!�

Lights allow for night skiing, as well, weather permitting. Hailey Ice offers several programs, including hockey for elementary-aged children, broom

Men’s Fitness Mag Pays Homage to Sun Valley

STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

Included for Buyers: Bonus 1) Hardwood Floors in the Living Room, Dining & Kitchen (you pick stain color)

Sweetwater Community Realty

“Men’s Fitness” exhorts its readers to look for the Norwegians at the annual Nordic Festival. We wish. Unfortunately, we only seem to get them during Olympic years. Here, Sun Valley residents Bob Disbrow and Kim Kawaguchi enjoy a moment with one member of the Norwegian Olympic team following a private lesson with the Norwegians at Sun Valley Nordic Center.

“M

en’s Fitness” magazine has named Sun Valley one of the 10 Best Ski Resorts in America based on killer powder and a robust après-ski scene. “America’s oldest ski resort— it’s in its 77th season—Sun Valley still manages to be a bit of a well-kept secret among locals,” said the article. “That means smaller crowds than big-name resorts and a pristine slope with more than 2,000 acres and a

3,400-foot drop at the edge of the Sawtooth National Forest. Plus, Sun Valley has some of the best resort Nordic trails in the country.” The 220 inches of average snowfall is a tad scant, the article continued, “but friendly staff and superb on-mountain dining top most other resorts.” The article encouraged readers to take the 56-car Roundhouse gondola up to the “fancy” Roundhouse restaurant for a Northwest lamb burger and “long alpine views.”

It also exhorted readers not to miss the annual Nordic Festival. But someone needs to tell them the Norwegian Olympic team doesn’t make it here every year, as they implied, even though we’d love to have Petter Northug and his chums. The list, which was based on such criteria as “killer powder” and the après-ski scene, also featured some of the usual suspects in Top 10 ski resort lists, including Taos, Telluride and Vail. tws

student spotlight

The View From Abroad BY JONATHAN KANE

M

at’ka Laštíková, Wood River High School junior, has a unique perspective on the Wood River Valley. That’s because she has traveled all the way from Slovakia as an exchange student as part of the Rotary Club International program. With an excellent grasp of the English language, this charming and exuberant young lady has taken the U.S. by storm. “My sister came to America four years ago as an exchange student and went to Iowa,” she said. “She had a great time and it’s always been my dream to come to America, so I seized the opportunity to come when it arose. My grandfather works for Rotary back home so he helped me apply.” Although she had no say in where she would end up, Laštíková was assigned to Sun Valley, which is similar to the small city she comes from in Slovakia – Liptovsky Mikulas. “It’s a ski resort with a lot of mountains. It’s not that different except that there winter is three months and I hear that it can be as long as seven months in Idaho. I knew that Sun Valley was famous but when I Googled it, I fell in love. When I first saw the Sun Valley village, all I could say was, ‘My god!’ Right now, it’s all super exciting and I don’t want to leave.” Upon arrival, Laštíková stayed with Bob Elgee and his family for three months. “They were incredible people and so nice to me. They really made me feel at home which I greatly appreciated. I thought that my English was super bad because I had only studied it for two years back home but it’s getting a lot better. It’s so different and it’s really hard. My first week here was spent in Boise after a lot of travel that ended up in a flight from Paris to Salt Lake City. We had an orientation and met all the other exchange students and had to introduce and tell everyone about ourselves. Everyone wants to come to the U.S. and it’s everyone’s dream. I always wanted to come because of American movies and to see all the bands that I love. My favorite movie is Sleepless in Seattle because of Tom Hanks and I also love Forrest Gump. I couldn’t believe it when I heard that he has a house at here and sometimes visits! My favorite bands are Coldplay, Of Monsters and Men and Jason Mraz who is originally from the Czech Republic. My sister said that the movies were a little different from the reality. For one thing the teachers are so much nicer than home and the work is a little easier because at home it is very hard

Senior Project Day at Wood River High School

Meet WRHS Senior My Yume Mai

My Yume Mai says, “I have been working with art for most of my life, including taking summer art classes in Vietnam and taking studio art with Be�y Ervin at Wood River High School. I am very interested in apparel design but I don’t have any experience with this yet, so I decided to focus on this for my Senior Project.” Yume is learning to design a dress by learning paper dress making. “This project is a combina�on of fashion design and paper cra� – I hope that it gives me a hint of what to expect in fashion design as well as making art as a different form,” says Yume. Yume hopes to study art and math in college. Matinka Laštíková

and you don’t get to choose what you will study, like my favorite class – choir.” Laštíková added, “At first I was so excited to go to school here but a little scared. It’s turned out to be fantastic. I have so many friends now and the first week everyone was eager to learn about me and to make me feel at home. Honestly, I miss home but I don’t want to go back. I know that someday I will return, but in the meantime, I’ll cherish my time here.” tws

Meet WRHS Senior Catherine Henry Catherine Henry plans on learning the pre-novice compulsory moves of equestrian vaul�ng. Equestrian vaul�ng combines gymnas�cs and dance while on horseback. “This project will be a learning stretch for me in several ways. I will not only need to learn and master basic gymnas�cs and dance skills on a sta�onary apparatus, but will need to work to apply these to the actual vaul�ng process,” says Henry. Meet the 170 other seniors and learn more about their projects at Wood River High School’s Senior Project Day.

Jan. 9, 2012 Nordic Town USA

G

oing all the way back to 1936 Sun Valley is steeped in history and tradition as the first true destination ski resort in the western United States modeled after the popular European resorts of the day. The terrain on Bald Mountain is considered to be some of the finest in the world. With abundant sunshine and generally mild weather when the snow is good the skiing on Baldy is pretty hard to beat. What is not so widely known about the Sun Valley area is the outstanding nordic, (a.k.a cross country), skiing we have. Generally ample snowfall with a sunny, dry climate in between storms makes for wonderful nordic skiing conditions whether it be skate or classic style. Combine great conditions with literally hundreds of kilometers of groomed trails, and the Sun Valley area earns it’s recently adopted mantra, “Nordic Town USA”. In fact, just this season Sun Valley has earned the designation as an official Olympic Training site for nordic. As a nordic enthusiast myself I’ve endured years of granola crowd jokes and condescension from the snottier of my alpine skiing friends, but I fly my nordic flag proudly. I never feel more balanced and stronger on my alpine skis than when I have developed good cross country fitness. I enjoy all forms of sliding on snow, alpine, cross country, and backcountry and all of these forms of skiing compliment each other nicely. This coming Saturday, January 12th, is Ski Free day on the North Valley trail system and there will also be free instruction at Galena Lodge. Also upcoming is the Sun Valley Nordic Festival (svnordicfestival.com) scheduled for Jan 26th-Feb. 3rd. This will be a week filled with nordic skiing, demonstrations, races, seminars, and activities all culminating with the Boulder Mountain Tour. So if you’re curious about trying nordic skiing for the first time or are a veteran, the next month is filled with opportunities to get out and learn about nordic skiing. It will be a great time to take a lesson, try some new gear, pin on a number and go race, or simply cheer on the racers. Nordic skiing is just another one of the many great outdoor activities we are so fortunate to have here in the Wood River Valley. Enjoy the slopes and trails!

movie review

The Hunt for Osama bin Laden BY JONATHAN KANE

I

n the critically lauded and controversial new film Zero Dark Thirty we are given a taut thriller about one womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s search for the hiding place and eventual execution of the mastermind behind the World Trade Center attacks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Osama bin Laden. That woman, played beautifully by Hollywoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ultrahot actress, Jessica Chastain, begins a 10-year search through a morass of conflicting intelligence and the disregard of her intuition by male bosses to track the man down, not living in a cave in Afghanistan as the experts believed but, rather, hiding in plain site in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The end is already known but her obsessive diligence is at the heart of

this incredibly directed movie by Kathyrn Bigelow, the Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker from a fine screenplay by her collaborator on that pictureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Mark Boal. The raging controversy surrounding the film concerns the disturbing first half hour when a money courier to bin Laden is tortured to supply the name of the man that will lead to the al Qaeda leader. Top CIA operatives have stated that no torture was used in the hunt, but the picture claims otherwise. Either way, the scenes are pretty provocative for the intelligence thriller that will follow. My own difficulty with the movie is what lays the groundwork for the thriller aspect. Names and countries are fired at the audience at rapid-fire pace and it is

Jon rated this movie

best to have your attention skills sharply focused at this point or just sit back and take the ride. Either way, Bigelowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is a marvel and should earn her a second directorial Oscar. With a subtle and masterful touch, she lets the audience make decisions for itself while weaving a taut and thrilling story. At the end, we are treated to the half-anhour raid on the compound, all shot realistically through the green lens of night-vision. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big payoff for a film that is a must-see. tws

Volunteer Group Organizes to Support Improvements to Wood River Trail A group of concerned citizens has stepped forward to help BCRD with the passage of a two-year levy in May 2013 to rebuild and resurface large portions of the Wood River Trail System. The BCRD Board of Directors has studied the need for major improvements to the Wood River Trails over the past year. At a recent board meeting, the BCRD Board of Directors declared their intention to ask the com-

munity to support a 2-year tax levy to fix the trail and ensure the next 30 years of useful life. The volunteer group includes Tom Bowman, Bob Crosby, Mary Austin Crofts, Dick Fosbury, Jed Gray, Tim Hamilton, Wendy Jaquet, Sarah Michael, Wally Morgus, Bob Rosso and Al Stevenson.

He built some of the most celebrated houses in Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he even had a street named after him when he passed away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As I took care of him, I realized his passion for drawing eclipsed everything else.

e can quibble all we want about how to market Sun Valley. But, at the end of the day, our best bet may still be with someone like Arnold Schwarzenegger. As Jay Leno kidded him about his skiing prowess last week, Schwarzenegger told how there was a run in Sun Valley named for himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the run chosen because â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always loved to take the most

If Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketers have their way, this will be like throwing down the gauntlet, enticing skiers and boarders to flock to Sun Valley to test their mettle against Arnoldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Run. Meanwhile, Minette Broschofsky reports that the Sun

Bermejo, who joined up with the Wood River Ability Program this winter, won Friday’s 15k freestyle race. He took Sunday’s 10k by a considerable margin.

Meadow Voles and Pocket Gophers

M

eadow voles and pocket gophers cause significant damage to rangeland, alfalfa, pastures, and other agricultural crops. Combined or alone, forage losses from gophers and/or voles have been estimated at 10 to 50 percent in pastures and alfalfa. These rodents also cause significant damage in orchards, nurseries, turf lawns, ornamental flower plantings, landscapes, lawns, and vegetable gardens. Both voles and gophers damage plants by eating roots, trunks, stems, tubers, and leaves. Their tunneling habits also cause damage. Large mounds of soil left by rodents can dull knives and discs on

harvesting equipment. Soil from mounds also contaminates hay bales. Underground rodent burrows and tunnels interfere with irrigation practices and equipment. The burrowing and mounding capabilities of gophers encourage weed invasion through ground disturbance and can cause injury to people, horses, and livestock that step into holes. Although voles reproduce more rapidly than gophers, both have remarkable reproductive capacity. Population surges can occur frequently when adequate forage and habitat are available. Voles and gophers are considered non-game mammals in most states and can be legally

Where the Snow Meets the Earth

A

s you’re out snowshoeing or cross-country skiing this winter you’ll inevitably see the crisscross of animal tracks across the snowy surface. You may even spy the intriguing trail of the ermine, bounding two by two before ending abruptly, disappearing down a small hole in the snow. Where might this creature have gone? The answer most likely is that it plunged into the busy, hidden winter world of the subnivean. The subnivean zone – Latin in origin, meaning under (sub) the snow (nives) – forms where the snow meets the earth. Here, a relatively sharp temperature gradient, due to the difference between the heat of the earth and the cold air above the snowpack, may result in a layer at the base of the pack. Backcountry skiers may know this as a facet layer, which is, effectively, poorly bonded, loose “sugar snow.” While this layer makes for risky avalanche conditions,

managed on private property and public lands. Check with your state wildlife agency or department of agriculture regarding legal control methods in your area. Management options depend on the pest, the situation, cost limitations and equipment and labor availability. It is important to understand the target pest’s biology and habits before implementing management strategies. Article courtesy of Pacific Northwest Extension Publication D. Gunn, R. Hirnyck, G. Shewmaker, S. Takatori, L. Ellis Available at your local University of Idaho Extension office.

it is easy for wildlife to burrow through. Likewise, the snowpack above provides a thick, natural insulating layer for those living beneath, including many plants. Throughout the winter, a lively ecosystem exists out of sight, in the subnivean zone. Mice, voles, and gophers huddle, burrow, and forage, while weasels and martins stalk and chase them through intricate tunnel systems. Try digging a snow-pit in your yard or a field by making a wall perpendicular to the Earth’s surface. Along the base of that wall you will probably find the “sugar-snow” subnivean layer. If you’re lucky, you might even spot a tunnel or two! Are you curious about which animals are active in winter?

Barnes’ One-Butt Kitchen STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

T

he porcelain lemon juicer with the bluebird painted on its side says as much about Bette Barnes’ love of cooking as any other gadget she has in her kitchen. It’s from Mexico—a little town on the Sea of Cortez called Buena Vista, to be exact. That’s where Barnes came to love to prepare dinners for friends. “After my husband Bill retired as superintendent of schools, we moved to Mexico a thousand miles south of San Diego. It was a simpler way where a Mexican lady washed laundry on a washboard and hung them on a barbed wire fence to dry,” recalled the Hailey woman. “And there wasn’t much to do except fish for marlin and have dinner parties for everyone who wanted to come to Mexico to see us.” Apparently, practice made perfect, as Barnes has turned into “a fabulous cook,” according to her friend Patti Reed: “She creates delicious, unusual and well-prepared meals with ease and with a smile on her voice.” When Bill and Bette Barnes moved to Sun Valley 21 years ago to escape the desert sun, the lemon juicer came with them, along with Barnes’ penchant for entertaining. Both play a big role in one of her favorite dishes—Cold Lemon Souffle. “I like it because you can do it in advance. You can even put it in a freezer and then move it to the refrigerator to thaw about three hours before you serve it. And it serves about eight people because it’s very rich,” she said. Barnes set about to make that souffle on a recent afternoon, starting first by juicing fresh lemons on her porcelain juicer. She spent the next 15 minutes stirring egg yolks, sugar and grated lemon rinds in the top of a double boiler. “You could just wait for it turn into a ribbon. But that’s a harder concept for people to grasp. So I just tell people to cook it for 15 minutes. That works out fine as long as the water’s not too hot. If it’s too hot, your eggs will scramble,” she said. Barnes’ kitchen is horseshoe-shaped, dominated by a granite counter and glass cabinets displaying her wine glasses and cookbooks and a smooth electric range top—a feature Barnes prizes because it’s so easy to clean. The kitchen is small, as modern kitchens go, but everything an arm’s reach away. “We call it a one-butt kitchen because two people can’t bend over at the same time,” she quipped. Strains of classical music fill the air as she goes about her task. All they could get in Mexico was Mexican music, she says, save for 2 or 3 in the morning when they could tune in a San Diego station. Barnes doesn’t need to look at a recipe as she prepares the souffle—she’s done it dozens of times. She works methodically, putting the lemon mixture in the pantry to let it cool, then taking it out on the porch to stir it again to let it get cooler still. Satisfied that it is cool enough, she brings it back in and proceeds to mix the whipped cream in a bowl in her sink so the mixture doesn’t splatter on her dark red walls. She folds the whipped cream into the lemon mixture, then fashions a collar of waxed paper around the souffle dish to give it a little additional height, tying the collar off with wrapping twine and a paper clip. Her cooking was simpler, she says, when her kids were young and she was teaching business courses to high school and college students. “We bought five pounds of hamburger—a pound for every day of the work week. We’d have meat loaf one day, stuffed peppers the next... Once the children left, I felt I could try a greater variety.” And Barnes did just that, pairing her love of traveling with cooking classes in exotic realms like Thailand and Italy. She pulled an old book held together by red tape out of her recipe book cabinet. The book was written by Michael Fields, former food editor of The New York Times. “This guy taught me how to cook. It doesn’t have a lot of recipes but it explained things in a way that any idiot could follow them. After this, I graduated to Julia Childs,” she said. She pulled out another book—this one by Martin Yan. She thumbed through the recipes, which included Salmon Packets with Black Bean Sauce, Stuffed Steamed Trout, Thai Spiced Orange Pork Chops with Onions and Pork Basil Stir-Fry. Her husband has scribbled the dates that she prepared each dish next to the recipes, with comments like “Delicious.” “When I started going to more exotic Chinese dishes, this was the chef I turned to,” she said. “You can see I’ve got food stains on all the pages.” When the souffle had congealed, Barnes drizzled a few lines of raspberry sauce onto each plate. Then she drizzled a few more lines over the souffle and sprinkled on a few fresh raspberries to top it off. “This is amazingly good,” said Jim Emry, among those lucky enough to sample it. “It’s kind of like a lemon mousse. A very yummy lemon mousse.” Such comments are music to Barnes’ ears. “I’m not very creative so cooking is my outlet,” she said. “And I find you get a lot of strokes for it because most people like to eat.”

Bette Barnes stirs her souffle on the porch in a maneuver designed to cool it off just a little bit more.

What you should know about Bette Favorite gadgets: “The microwave, of course. It makes it so easy to steam vegetables and not lose the vitamins you would if you boiled them in water on the stove. Also, the Cuisinart—you can shred a pound of lettuce in eight seconds when you have a lot of people coming to dinner.” Have knife will travel: Bette Barnes takes her knives—all 22 of them that she bought for $30 off an infomercial during a bout of insomnia—with her when she and her husband head to Arizona for a winter respite. She takes her spices, too—they don’t last long and it’s expensive to buy new ones, she said. Where Bette draws the line: Cookies and sushi. “I love to eat them but I don’t like making them because you have to spend so much time dealing with little individual pieces. When I cook, I want to have it over with.” Food memory: “I was invited to President George W. Bush’s inauguration and they had a cake that was a duplicate of the White House on a smaller scale. It was an awesome thing to see.” Most exotic experience: “My husband and I went to a restaurant in China where you could pick out the snakes you wanted for dinner.” Favorite dish: Lamb. My dad was born in France and my grandfather was a bit of a gourmand—he made his own wine in the cellar. As a result, I grew up eating artichokes, mushrooms and lamb—things that 60 years ago were considered exotic. Comfort food: Besides Cold Lemon Souffle, I love ice cream sundaes loaded with chocolate and caramel sauce and almonds and whipped cream. Most detestable food: “I love to eat anything but hot beets.” Favorite chef: Martin Yan. “I used to watch him on PBS. None of his recipes go more than a page. They have limited ingredients. And they always turn out wonderfully.” Favorite people to cook for: “My family. I get a lot of joy out of it and it’s something I don’t get to do a lot of now that my son has his own family. Dreams: I’d like to take a Master Class in cooking at Cordon Bleu.

RECIPE

Bette’s Cold Lemon Souffle

6 eggs, separated 1 1/2 cups sugar 1 tab unflavored gelatin juice of 3 lemons grated rind of 2 lemons 1 pint whipping cream

In top of a double boiler combine egg yolks, sugar and grated lemon rinds. Mix well and cook 15 minutes, stirring constantly. In a small sauce pan combine gelatin and juice. Cook over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Add to yolk mixture and cool. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Whip cream until it’s stiff. Fold egg whites and cream into yolk mixture and pour into a prepared souffle dish. To increase the volume on the souffle dish, tear a 24-inch piece of wax paper, fold it in half lengthwise, fold it again, then tie it around the top of the souffle dish, extending it over the rim of the dish about 2 inches. Refrigerate overnight. Or freeze, thawing in refrigerator just before serving. Serve with raspberry sauce or chocolate curls. tws Serves 6 to 8

Squash Soup, a Wonderful Winter Warm-up RECIPE & PHOTO BY MARGOT VAN HORN

H

ere you are using a true â&#x20AC;&#x153;New Worldâ&#x20AC;? crop. Banana squash seeds were discovered from an archeological site in Peru. In 1893 R.H. Shumway of the seed catalogue fame introduced this squash to us here in this country. This squash requires long periods of warm season weather to reach maturity and often stays on the vine for up to 120 days. Therefore, it requires over a half-year to cultivate and makes for just one single crop annually. With that in mind, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really give respect to this very healthy and delicious squash. I really enjoy squashes cooked in all sorts of ways; however, this easy-to-make â&#x20AC;&#x153;creamyâ&#x20AC;? soup is one of my favorites. Even though I do call it creamy, as you may notice there is no fat in it. There is another variety that does contain cream and butter which is more luxurious; however, frankly, this wintery warm-me-up version fits just right for my belly. Enjoy!

Creamy Banana Squash or Winter Squash Soup Makes 2 generous and 4 scant servings Ingredients: 3 C. peeled banana squash, cut into 1- to 2-inch cubes (about 1 ž lb.) 4-5 cloves of garlic, peeled 1 Pippin apple, peeled, cored and chopped fine 1/4 tsp. dried tarragon

Preparing For Your Financial Future Provided by Patrick Buchanan, a Registered State Farm Agent Written by State Farm VP Management Corp.

hen most of us think of investing, we immediately think of investing for retirement. While that is an important aspect to be considered, there are other pieces of the puzzle that are also important. Establishing a budget, investing early and regularly, and saving for post-secondary education should also be considered. Establish a budget Establishing a budget is a great first step in planning your finances. A budget is a useful tool for recording all of your income and expenses. By writing down how much money you earn and spend each month, you can see where your money is going. This will assist you in being able to prioritize your expenses and needs. Any money left over can be used for savings and investing. Even a small amount of money invested regularly can help. Invest early and regularly, even small amounts One reason to start a regular investment program early is to give your money as much time as possible to grow through compounding. If you haven’t started investing yet, then consider starting now and getting into the habit. Just remember that the amounts you invest do not have to be large, especially if the money is taken directly out of each paycheck. You will be surprised how little you miss money you don’t see. If you’re already investing every month, look for ways to contribute more through

bonuses and monetary gifts. A hypothetical example The value of starting early is illustrated by a 25-year-old investing $2,000 per year for 10 years at a hypothetical 8 percent fixed rate of return with all gains and dividends reinvested. This 25-year-old would accumulate $314,870 by age 65. A 35-year-old investing $2,000 per year for 30 years and reinvesting all gains and dividends will have $244,692 when he or she reaches 65. These hypothetical examples are for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to represent or imply the actual performance of any specific investment. It is important to note that any investment involves risks that may result in the loss of principal and there is no guarantee that the strategies illustrated will produce positive investment results. College tuition planning Preparing for your children’s or grandchildren’s college education is important, especially when tuition costs are rising every year. One possibility might include investing in a Coverdell Education Savings Account, which allows tax-free withdrawals for qualified education expenses. These can include room, board and tuition for elementary, secondary and higher education. You might also want to look into prepaid tuition plans. Many states offer programs that allow parents to lock in the cost of tomorrow’s college tuition and fees for what it would cost today.

Ford’s Canada

“I never think of the characters I write as exactly people, the way some writers say they do, letting their characters ‘just take over and write the book’; or, for that matter, in the way I want readers to think of them as people, or even as I think of characters in novels I myself read (and didn’t write). In my own books, I do all the writing—the characters don’t.” In reading this book, you have to agree with Ford’s description of his own writing. Most of the reviews I have read start out the same way— with his two beginning sentences in the book: “First, I’ll tell about the robbery our parents committed. Then about the murders, which happened later.” So, now are you hooked? With that in mind, the remainder of the book delves into a family so torn asunder by one man’s extreme and costly folly and the resulting consequences to the remainder of the members that the book definitely keeps you on the edge of your chair.

ord lives in Maine; however, he seems to be fascinated with Montana and Canada. Well, I guess living in the wilds of Maine, Montana could contain a similar landscape. Ford got the Pulitzer for his book “Independence” so you know that he is an accomplished writer. Some compare him to Hemingway. His style of writing is very sparse and slow—so if you are in a hurry, don’t read this book. I found it disturbing in subject matter (where in the world does he get his scenarios?); however, I couldn’t put it down. I kept wanting to find out, even though he lets you know early on, the details: the why, how, and what happens. So, if you find yourself continually thinking about the circumstances and the characters, you know that you have a good book on your lap. Ford describes his way of drawing his characters as this:

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My daughter loves animals. When she was small, she would bring home anything that moved. One time it was a turtle crossing the road. We brought that one back to a lake. Then it was a baby bird that fell out of its nest. When she turned twelve a year ago, we let her get a pet rabbit. She did wonders with it and trained it to roam the house without causing too much trouble. Most recently, she read an ad for abandoned kittens that need a good home and wants to add one of these to her pet collection. She's great at taking care of the animals, so my only concern is whether or not cats and rabbits get along. Will the cat attack our overly friendly bunny? Is it possible they can live in harmony or are they destined to fight like cats and dogs?

• • • Cash: Well we've never heard the expression, "fighting like cats and rabbits", so that's a good sign. Carry: Surprisingly, even animals that are natural enemies in the wild can be good friends in a safe environment at home. Cash: It's great that your daughter is conscientious about

training her pets. It's no easy task to train a rabbit to live indoors. If she is that dedicated to the kitten, then things could work out relatively well. Carry: Since these kittens were abandoned, it's important you try to learn about their backgrounds and disposition. While they could act perfectly normal around people, they may have had interactions with other animals that could affect their behavior. Cash: Keep in mind that cats are predators by nature. When they play with balls of string and feathery toys as kittens, they are practicing their natural tendency to hunt.

Carry: The fact that your rabbit

has lived with you for a year is a great advantage. Introducing a new animal should be less stressful for the bunny since it's familiar with the environment. You may even find that the rabbit chases the kitten to establish its territory. Cash: Before you commit to bringing home the cat, introduce it slowly to your rabbit and see how they react. If they are curious to get to know each other, you may have a good match. Carry: Of course, then your next problem is deciding how many more animals your daughter will want to add to her pet collection.

Housebreaking a dog or cat is very common, but how about a rabbit? Surprisingly, even rabbits can be taught to use a litter box and live indoors. Start by placing the litter box where they normally go to the bathroom. As they become accustomed to the litter box, you can expand their freedom outside the cage. It may take some time to train a rabbit, but with some patience they can be housetrained just like any other pet.

Just a Nip

If you own a cat, you know how fond your feline can be of catnip. Catnip is a member of the mint family of aromatic herbs. It has been used as an herbal remedy in humans since the 15th century, but on cats it often has a unique effect. The chemical compound called nepetalactone, found in the essential oil of catnip, can induce a harmless physiological reaction in about 85% of all cats. Often the feline will roll around, lie in silly positions, or even appear to be chasing an invisible friend. •

Reader Humor Cat Nipped

In my neighborhood everyone lets their cats roam outside at night. Most of the time it's not a problem, but lately the neighbor's cat has been fighting with ours. After several nights of waking up to a ruckus, my husband started keeping our cat inside. It didn't seem to help as the neighbor's cat just found someone else to fight. One night he put some catnip outside hoping it would distract the cat from causing trouble. That evening the neighbor's cat again began screaming. When my husband opened the window to yell, he said, "I don't believe it." "Didn't he find the catnip?" I asked. "He must have," he laughed. "He's wrestling with our lawn gnome!" (Thanks to Silvia P.)
