According to research surveys, commercial flights to Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN) bring in over 41,000 visitors and parttime residents/second homeowners each year with an annual estimated economic impact of over $72 million in direct spending during their visits. “We are very excited about this new opportunity that provides the community with a fantastic deal on skiing Sun Valley while supporting our critical air service initiatives, “ remarked Eric Seder, president of Fly Sun Valley Alliance. “And once again, Sun Valley Resort has stepped up in a big way to partner in this effort.” Seder noted that the entire community benefits significantly from air service and this is another unique way that people can have fun while supporting an important cause that impacts the local economy, many different types of business and thousands of local jobs. Ticket Sales - The $35 SKI FOR AIR SERVICE lift tickets will go on sale at participating retailers on Wednesday, Jan. 11, and will continue through Saturday, Jan. 21, or until the limited number of lift tickets available are sold out.

This bowl of Tea Flowers contains herbs and blossoms. “There’s no caffeine in it—it’s just a lovely drink with a hibiscus, honeydew and sweet fruit taste,” said Pam Colesworthy.

This plate contains a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting, almond spice cookie and almond meringue cookie dipped in chocolate.


spices as orange peel and licorice. Dore serves high tea from 4 to 5:30 p.m. each day, serving traditional tea along with finger sandwiches, cookies and scones and jam on 6-inch-square plates. Tobin Jutte, the teahouse’s “food curator,” creates light meals of such things as edamame, English cucumber hummus boats, turkey, provolone and cranberry Panini, quiche, African chicken peanut soup and polenta pie, lasagna and cauliflower curry casserole. He also bakes a line of tasty glutenfree cranberry-orange scones, almond meringue cookies dipped in chocolate, tiny red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and even a rosemary-olive oil cake infused with chocolate bits and drizzled with a sweet concoction of balsamic vinegar. There’s a ZenMatcha vanilla ginger latté, hot cocoa infused with peppermint and other teas and espresso and cappuccino for those who would prefer something other than tea. The shop also carries such boutique gifts as Zulugrass and Zuluwood jewelry, traditional chai cups, lidded cups with infusers and bamboo scoops like the one Colesworthy uses with the matcha for sale. Colesworthy, who has placed crystals throughout the tearoom to generate good vibes, says she opened the teahouse as a “sanctuary of wellness.” “My system can’t take much coffee. And coffeehouses are often too loud and noisy. I wanted a peaceful place—a place of tranquility and serenity,” she says. Tea Master Sylvie Dore, who worked in Whole Foods’ nutrition and body care department before moving to Ketchum to work in the Idaho Biotech lab, is living


elf-appointed tea maven Pam Colesworthy is preparing a cup of antioxidant alchemy. She measures a teaspoon of matcha — a highly concentrated powdered green tea — out of a tea caddy with a slim bamboo tea scoop and transfers the tea into a Raku-style tea bowl. As the powder wafts through the air, she adds hot water and whips the tea and water together with a bamboo whisk. Then she offers it to the customer in front of her. “You can meditate through the tea—it’s a lovely time out,” she says. “And one cup of this is worth 10 cups of green tea for the antioxidants it contains.” Colesworthy, a Realtor and property manager in the Wood River Valley since 2001, has added the business of dispensing the feel-good properties associated with tea to her resumé. Her new Tranquility Teahouse, located in a cozy canary-colored house at Sixth and Washington streets in Ketchum, offers a tranquil place for people to relax over their pick of 28 loose leaf teas from around the world. The teahouse not only draws from the traditional tea ceremony of the Japanese but it pays homage to the high tea pastime of the English where tea is the national drink. Tea Master Sylvie Dore conducts free tea tastings at the bar from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturdays, offering up several choices of tea, including Silver Needles tea, an organic white tea with a roast chestnut and wild honey aroma from the Hunan Province of China, and Ayurvedic teas made of an Indian basil plant blended with such

A bowl of ZenMatcha tea consists of the youngest top three leaves of the tea plant, which are ground to a fine powder. It is reputed to have more antioxidants than blueberries and can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, increase metabolism and boost energy. It can be served hot or cold straight up, as a latté with a vanilla soy almond milk and ginger or even a shot of white chocolate syrup.

“Teas are the optimal way of taking herbs.” –Sylvie Dore, Teamaster her dream in the new teahouse as she creates her signature chai tea. Dore, a graduate of the University of California at Santa Cruz, is studying to be a master herbalist using herbs to treat and prevent disease. And, she says serving up tea fits right into that. As proof, she mixes a blend of teas containing rosehip, lemon balm and licorice leaves for a throat-soothing tea rich in vitamin C and antiviral properties for the customer who’s feeling under the weather. And she has a special cup of chamomile and lavender tea, which she says is relaxing and revitalizing, for those with tension headaches. “Teas are the optimal way of taking herbs,” she says. “There are wonderful healing properties to teas and herbs and all the things that can be infused with water,” adds Colesworthy. “Most of the world drinks tea. You can’t drink water in so many places if you don’t boil the water. And if you have boiled water, you might as well add some flavoring—and some health.” tws

Classical Guitar with Mattias Jacobsson BY KAREN BOSSICK


attias Jacobsson started playing guitar at 9 to emulate his favorite rock bands. But he fell in love with classical music when his guitar teacher played him Spanish classical guitarist Fernando Sor’s “Op. 35 No. 22 in B Minor.” The tonality of it was mind-boggling, he said. And, for him, there’d be no turning back. “I love many different types of music. But I especially like the variety that classical music offers,” said Jacobsson. “It spans 500 years and, in that time, quite different styles. There are just so many different styles to choose from in classical music.” Jacobsson has chosen a few of those styles, including music by Bach, Barrios, Tarrega and Pujol, to incorporate into Thursday’s performance with the Sun Valley Artist Series. The concert starts at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Big Wood at Warm Springs and Saddle roads. This will be the second time the 27-year-old Swedish virtuoso guitar player has performed with the Sun Valley Artist Series. Jacobsson recalls his last performance here with fondness,

including his ride up Baldy’s gondola. “I had an absolutely amazing time last time in Sun Valley. It was definitely a music-loving audience. They were very openhearted and a very, very giving audience,” he said. Jacobsson has played around the world, bringing tears to audience’s eyes with his haunting performance of Rodrigo’s “Concierto de Aranjuez.” He performed Television Espanola’s centennial celebration of Francisco Tarrega for Spain’s national television in Madrid. And he played for inmates at the Soto del Real prison. He drew the most young people to a Sun Valley Artist Series concert during his last performance here. He also has gained a substantial following on YouTube, cataloging more than 49,000 hits, said Sun Valley Artist Series’ artistic director Susan Spelius Dunning. Jacobsson says he loves playing with symphony orchestras and even as part of opera. But perhaps his most memorable concert came when he performed with his Juilliard School guitar teacher Sharon Isbin at the Aspen Music Festival. The music they performed from Martin Scorsese’s movie “The Departed”

briefs Empty Bowls Event makes for Full Bellies Join Boulder Mountain Clayworks, a local nonprofit, on Sunday, January 15 at the Church of the Big Wood for their second annual Empty Bowls event. This community fundraiser benefits The Hunger Coalition through the sale of 300 handcrafted bowls. Created by professional and amateur artisans, and students of Boulder Mountain Clayworks, The Community School and Wood River High School, each bowl is available for $20 and includes soup, salad and dessert. Guests are invited to fill their bowls of choice from a variety of freshly prepared soups. The wonderful selection of soups is accompanied by fresh salads, breads, and dessert donated by local restaurants to be served from 12-2 p.m. This year’s efforts resulted in the creation of 300 ceramic bowls for this tasty and inspiring community event— each a singular work of art! Each bowl

represents a potential $20 donation to The Hunger Coalition, a local nonprofit dedicated to providing wholesome food, and hope, to local individuals and families experiencing hunger. The Church of the Big Wood will host the Empty Bowls event in their cafeteria on Sunday, January 15 from noon to 2 p.m. Participants include Atkinsons’, Bigwood Bread, CK’s, Il Naso, Ketchum Grill, Perry’s, Toni’s Ice Cream, Wally Lange, Sayvour, Esta, Cheri Drougas, Rolling in Dough, Sun Valley Company, and Cabot Creamery. Please call Boulder Mountain Clayworks at 208-726-4484 for more information. The Empty Bowls lunch is Sunday, January 15 from 12-2 p.m. at the Church of the Big Wood, 100 Saddle Road, Ketchum. All are welcome with admission being the purpose of a bowl. Additional questions and more information is also available at The Hunger Coalition at 208-788-0121.

Joby Timm named New Area Ranger for Sawtooth National Recreation Area Joby Timm has been selected as the new Area Ranger for the 756,000-acre Sawtooth National Recreation Area, located on the Sawtooth National Forest in Central Idaho. Timm will replace Sara Baldwin who retired in October and Acting Area Ranger Mike Dettori who will return to the Fairfield Ranger District as District Ranger. Announcing Timm’s selection is Becky Nourse, Sawtooth National Forest supervisor. “Joby’s interpersonal skills are one of his greatest strengths. His ability to actively listen to both sides of an issue and communicate openly and fairly has allowed him to successfully navigate through some very tough situations,” said Nourse.

“He is a highly effective communicator and a good thinker who makes wellthought-out and rational decisions. I am confident that Joby will be an excellent fit for the Sawtooth NRA and a great addition to the Sawtooth National Forest.” Timm is currently the District Ranger on the Grand River Ranger District, Dakota Prairie Grasslands, since 2007. Timm enjoys many outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing and golf, although he admits his golf game is nothing to brag about. Joby has served on the local fire department and actively supports Pheasants Forever, Lemmon Sportsman Club and the Boy Scouts of America. Joby will report to work on January 17, 2012.

Gretel Ehrlich on Global Warming BY KAREN BOSSICK


he world needs to accept the fact that ice melt in the Arctic is a global emergency. That’s the admonition writer Gretel Ehrlich gave a full house at the Church of the Big Wood Thursday night. Ehrlich, who spoke as part of the Sun Valley Center for the Arts’ 2011-12 lecture series, described how ice has shrunk from 15 feet to seven inches in a decade, threatening the existence of entire communities. The Inuit who use the ice as their highway didn’t used to think about whether it was going to be there. Now they have to pick and choose when to go out to provide for their families by hunting, she said, because they might not come back if they miscalculate. “We’re having a culture that’s coming apart. And there’s no way we can put ice back into place.� Ehrlich said she herself has seen places that were ice covered when she first began visiting the Arctic turn as dry as L.A. “The Arctic drives the climate of the whole world. Anything that happens there affects us,� she added. Ehrlich explained that the Arctic ice sequesters 25 percent of the carbon dioxide and keeps the middle latitudes cool and temperate. “It’s the natural air conditioner of the temperate world. And every time we lose a part of Greenland’s ice cap or some other part of the Arctic, we lose a place that’s going to radiate heat back into space.� Ehrlich said she sought refuge in the Arctic after being hit by lightning on her ranch in Montana in 1991. She traveled north to Greenland and the Arctic ice cap and fell in love with the Inuit people whom she later learned thought she had come to commit suicide since no one in the Inuit culture travels alone. Eventually, she got National Geographic to pick up the tab for subsequent trips as she traveled with hunters by dogsled for months on the sea ice hunting walruses at 60 below zero. She also traveled to Antarctica and to the Russian Arctic where the KGB saw to it that she talked to

“The Arctic drives the climate of the whole world.â€? â€œâ€Śevery Time we lose a part of Greenland’s ice cap or some other part of the Arctic, we lose a place that’s going to radiate heat back into space.â€? “the right peopleâ€?—a process she said involved handing out lots of money. Ehrlich wrote about her experiences in the books “In the Empire of Ice: Encounters in a Changing Landscapeâ€? and “This Cold Heaven: Seven Seasons in Greenland.â€? They are among a dozen books Ehrlich has published. The Inuit people have a sacred view of the world that nothing is unimportant and that everything is extraordinary, Ehrlich said. “It made me try to be more awake and aware and prayerful,â€? she said. “I try to approach every day with a sense of astonishtws ment.â€?

Briscoe Tops Swearing In BY KAREN BOSSICK


ou would have thought that being sworn in as mayor of Sun Valley would have been enough to make anyone’s day complete. But new Sun Valley Mayor Dewayne Briscoe topped that last week by announcing his engagement to Leslie Little at the party following his inauguration. “We decided to make it a twofor-one,� said Briscoe, a retired facial surgeon. “We had five classmates of mine from Garfield High School in Seattle at the party—three of them who came with me to Sun Valley for the first time with the high school ski team. Now, all five have homes in Sun Valley.� Little lived until recently in London while she was working on a coffee table book on Paris. She entertained a full house at The Community Library last July when she introduced her “Paris Icons,� which won three international book awards. She recently moved back to her home in Omaha, Neb., to complete her book on London to coincide with the 2012 Summer Olympics in that city. And, more recently, she moved to Sun Valley. Briscoe met Little three years ago at a dinner party and kept in touch. They started dating after he recovered from a lifethreatening blocked intestinal artery leading to his intestines in February and they found out they had more and more in common. Little could even identify with Briscoe’s brush with death since her own experience with a serious illness had prompted her to fulfill her dream of writing a book. Briscoe says the woman that

will be his new first lady has already been a big help to him, writing his campaign ads and coaching him on his campaign appearances. He expects Leslie to be a big help to him in his role as mayor, as well, since she has a B.A. in International Relations and History from Georgetown University and an MBA from the Haas School of Business at the University of California-Berkeley. As mayor, Briscoe can marry others—“I tell my friends: I can quickly help you lose half your estate,� he quips. But he’ll have to have someone else do the honors when it comes to his own wedding. Whether the wedding happens in Paris or in Sun Valley depends on his mayoral schedule and her book schedule. “When it came to the election, we figured we couldn’t lose either way,� he said. “If I was elected, we’d stay here. If I lost, we’d be off traveling the world. Both options are good ones.� tws

Muffy Ritz and Joney Ottesen tried on the latest skiwear at Bavarian Soul Monday night—tiger and wolf hats that even included mittens at the end of the long warm hats. Ritz won the inaugural Nordic Ambassador Award at last year’s Galena Lodge Benefit. Who will succeed her this year?

Galena Lodge Benefit Includes New Orleans Package PHOTOS & STORY BY KAREN BOSSICK


ll Night Diner will provide the music for Nordic skiers who still have some energy to kick up their heels on the dance floor after a hard day of skiing. And the second Nordic Ambassador will be crowned, succeeding Muffy Ritz, who was honored last year. The 16th Annual Galena Lodge and North Valley Ski Trails Benefit Dinner and Auction will be held at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 28, at the Sun Valley Inn Limelight Room. Co-organizer Jenny Busdon says benefit organizers have had a great response to their request for live and silent auction items. Among them: a three-night stay for two in New Orleans with daily breakfast at the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel; two VIP admissions to the Preservation Jazz Hall, which includes run-of-the house seating and front-of-the-line entry; a six-course dinner for two at the legendary Commander’s Palace, voted New Orleans’ most popular restaurant for its bread pudding soufflé and haute Creole cuisine; and two roundtrip coach class air tickets with American Airlines.

Other items include a fully supported Kilimanjaro trek in Tanzania; a two-night stay for four at a luxurious cabin on the Big Lost River with a full day of guided fly-fishing with Scooter Gardiner and lunch from Cristina’s; and a six-day guided rafting trip for two on the Main Salmon River. Busdon says the benefit has always appealed to a great cross section of Valley residents—all who treasure the skiing the North Valley Trails system offers and the relaxing amenities that the rustic lodge provides. No tax dollars are used to maintain the trails or lodge, which are instead paid for by pass sales and donations. The benefit also kicks off the third annual Nordic Festival, a nine-day festival of fun activities and races all geared around Nordic skiing. Admission to the benefit is $95 and includes a three-course dinner with wine and dancing. Tables for eight and 10 are available. Tickets are available online at Information: Megan Stevenson at 208-5785459 or Jenny Busdon at 208726-1649.

Nordic Trails, Major Attraction PHOTO & STORY BY KAREN BOSSICK


un Valley’s Nordic trails have become a major attraction this year as snowstarved skiers from elsewhere flock here to get what they can’t get on their home turf. The Bogus Basin Nordic Ski Team brought two vanloads and assorted cars up here this past weekend for its kids to train on snow. Ditto for the Utah State University ski team, according to Chris and Laurie Leman. And at least one Nordic racer from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Wash., spent his entire Christmas vacation training here, taking an occasional break by skiing Baldy. Ski Patroller Ted Angle said the Blaine County Recreation District is selling a lot of passes to skiers from places like Utah that don’t have especially good Nordic skiing right now. And Jenny Busdon said she and hubby Nello had dinner last week with a couple from Truckee, Nev., who were spending the week here getting ready for the Boulder Mountain Tour since they have but two kilometers of track open to them at home. The North Valley Trails north of Ketchum continue to ski fabulously, although the BCRD may

have to consider holding Ski the Rails on the Harriman Trail this year since the bike path from Ketchum to Hailey is mostly dry. The BCRD opened Billy’s Bridge over the weekend, offering Fido new trails to sniff. The loops, groomed sans classic track, were an adventure, thanks to rolls and dips and even holes in a few places. But nothing another couple of grooming sessions—and some snow— wouldn’t cure.

Sun Valley Nordic Center has also opened up Proctor and Diamondback loops, even though Mother Nature hasn’t exactly cooperated with more snow. Proctor is decent, but you might want to take a weed whacker with you for going up the big hill. Diamondback also is decent, except for a couple of “speed bumps” on the south-facing trail. But it’s definitely not for the faint of heart.

Born to Dance T




ood River High School senior Ingrid Peterson was born to dance. Starting at the tender age of seven, dance has consumed her life and remained her primary passion, along with all the arts. “I love having it in my life,” Peterson said. “I never want to stop pursuing it and learn every possible aspect of it.” In second grade, Peterson joined up with Footlight Dance Centre and studied with its founder, Hilary Neely. “My older sister, Marta, had been a dancer her whole life and I wanted to be just like her. After every one of her performances I would tell my mom how badly I wanted to dance and in second grade I laid down the law and started that fall at the age of seven and I haven’t stopped since. I remember looking at my first teacher and she was very small and she would teach us these combinations and she moved with such a grace that I wanted to be just like her.” Peterson caught on fast. “In my first year I was bumped up a level because Hilary thought I was ready and that it was time, which made me really stoked. It also gave me the incentive to keep pushing myself.” There are all forms of dance, but Peterson still prefers what she started with—ballet, which she said originated in the royal courts. “It involves basic movements that you have to put together in combinations in floor exercises. In Russia, it’s extremely rigorous for children. They pick out the girls at the age of six and it becomes their whole life. Here they don’t beat us to a pulp. It just depends on how far you want to go and how hard you want to push yourself.” Peterson also says it’s different living in a small town. “The pressure just isn’t thrust upon you. In a city, there are hundreds of dance studios and you know that there is someone always better than you, so you have to push yourself a lot more. Here, the biggest competition is you so it’s a lot more lenient.” Of course, there is always the joy of performing. “It can be so nerve-racking, but it’s one of the great highs you can experience as a dancer. That’s what you live for. You train every day and you want to wow the audience. It’s the one time in a dancer’s life that you can completely grasp everyone’s eyes and attention. It’s crazy because for one second it doesn’t matter what’s going on in the world and you feel how empowering it is to be a dancer and a performer. I’ve done it so many times that you come to love the adrenaline and it really pushes you to be better.” And then there is the rigorous schedule. “Monday through Friday I go to school from 8 a.m. until 2:45 p.m. Then Monday through

Ingrid Peterson

“My older sister, Marta, had been a dancer her whole life and I wanted to be just like her.” Thursday I dance from 4 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., where I work in modern dance and ballet. My favorite is contemporary ballet, which ties the two together with aspects of both forms. Then Saturdays and Sundays I work at The Bluebird Café.” Peterson recently switched to the Sun Valley Ballet School for their performance of Beauty and the Beast. “It was so much fun and a totally different atmosphere. It was also cool to work in such a different space. The Community Campus stage is so big and the nexStage Theatre stage is so small and crowded. The audience seems like it’s right in your face and I like having the space and freedom to move freely. I found that I had to hold back a little.” Peterson’s love of the arts has moved her to try something unrelated to dance for her senior project. Instead of trying choreography, she has chosen to make two rings out of sterling silver using the centuries-old technique of wax casting which involves making a mold out of wax and through a variety of techniques casting the rings. “I like rings a lot and this technique worked perfectly with that. The experience was awesome. I had never worked with jewelry or metals before and it opened up a lot of cool ideas to pursue in the future. I love learning new things and not knowing what the outcome will be. This was the perfect opportunity to do something different.” You can be sure that many new opportunities await this creative young lady. tws

he holiday season did not provide any significant snow, but did produce some outstanding chess! Just prior to Blaine County School’s winter break, Desmond Porth was named as the Wood River High School Blitz chess champion and he also had a perfect tournament, winning all nine games. Dylan Porth won second place and Nathan Stouffer, both from Wood River Middle School, beat the other high schoolers for placements in the open tournament. “Blitz” is fast chess using a chess timer set to five minutes for each game. During the winter break, the Family Chess Tournament was a huge success—there were over 13 teams participating! Teams consisted of partners from the same family competing against the other teams by combining points in 30-minute games. Teams were mom-child, grandpa-grandson, cousins, and even sibling teams competing. Nobody was turned away, however, and there were some mixed

family teams. Chess games are experienced-based, and not agedependent. Collin Young, age 7, quipped to his opponent, “Dude, that’s checkmate!” So, a sevenyear-old beating an adult can be common, to some of the participants’ surprise! Despite the age span of over 70 years, all the participants thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. Riley and Spencer


Neel (“The Destroyers”) won with a combined score of seven points. Only a half point behind were “The Stowns”—Garrett Stouffer and Ike Brown—for a second-place finish. Third-place was won by a house player, Desmond Porth, and Harrison Mymatt, a visitor from Los Angeles. tws

Senior Project Day at Wood River High School Meet WRHS Senior Kaili Smith

Kaili Smith’s dream job is to work in special events. “I love the energy of it and the challenge,” she says. For her Senior Project, Smith was the Communica�ons Director for the Yale Whiffenpoofs’ Community Outreach Tour during the Sun Valley Jazz Jamboree. “I was responsible for phone calls, emails, flyers, set�ng the schedule and keeping track of the details of the event,” said Smith. “The biggest challenge was the �ming of my project. Planning needed to happen right away when school started...”

Meet WRHS Senior Conor Murray Inspired by hip hop culture, Conor Murray decided to reconstruct a pair of Nike sneakers for his Senior Project. The process involved stripping the sneakers, also known as kicks, down to their base materials and rebuilding the shoe with new, high quality materials. “I’ve learned about the design industry, the garment trade, and shoe manufacturing,” said Murray. He spent about 65 hours researching the design and manufacturing process... Meet the 190 other seniors and learn more about their projects at Wood River High School’s Senior Project Day.

horoscopes It is difficult to read the face of a person sitting beside you without craning your neck or bearing the awkwardness of an encounter that’s too close for comfort. But the person sitting across from you is easily read. Communication flows effortlessly from this positioning. It’s the same with the moon, fully illuminated in opposition to the sun. The full Cancer moon will allow unforced understanding of deep and complex emotions. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Slow and deliberate action will take you far. Avoid doing too much at too quick a pace. Take a moment to decide which of the options available to you are likely to be the most powerful choices. Acting on one or two stellar opportunities will bring you more success than if you were to pursue every good lead. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your first instinct is to create your own niche instead of adapting to the circumstances that others have laid out for you. After all, what do they really know about you? Those circumstances were designed to serve their interests, not yours. By the end of the week, you’ll find success in a compromise. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be meeting with people who would like to join your cause but don’t know how they can effectively fit into what you’ve already got going. Keep asking questions. Find out what they need and want. There’s a way this can work, but it will take creative problem solving to figure out exactly how. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be a kind of poet. You won’t actually write poetry, per se, but you’ll present things that people already know in a way that they have never heard

movie review before, helping them form new neural pathways and emotional connections. Though you won’t be conscious of having an agenda, you’ll be most persuasive. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). As much as you value loyalty and are impressed by unbridled enthusiasm, you usually behave more like a cat than a dog. You are independent, discerning and graceful in your approach. Others will get the impression that they must prove themselves before you’ll let them into your world. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll get the chance to follow one of your more unusual interests. Not everyone will understand why this pleases you so. In fact, most everyone won’t. It’s not important that they understand or even that you do. What’s important is that you give yourself opportunities to joyfully express your unique spirit. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will craftily manage your impulses and appetites. To avoid disempowering feelings of being deprived or overwhelmed, give yourself a little of what you want. If you have trouble stopping after just a little, then try to divert your attention to other things you enjoy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You have been so focused on tending to the maintenance of relationships and possessions that you’ve hardly had a minute to think about what you want. Your needs are changing daily. You’ll have the opportunity to step into a new role, take stock of what you have, assess what’s missing and make requests. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s no shame in desiring more than you can accomplish. It’s one reason you attain such lofty achievements. Sometimes the striving makes you frustrat-

ed. Focus yourself on something other than the underlying current of defeat inherent in impossible goals. Think of all you’ve done and all you will do. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Too much planning and predicting could rob you of some fun now. Give yourself a break from thinking about the future. It may seem as though that’s where you’re going to spend the rest of your life. But the reality is that the future never comes. The only moment that can really be lived is this one. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). This week brings opportunities for you to grow wiser. Try not to let those same experiences cause you to be jaded. Your sign mate the comedian George Burns, who lived to be 100 and worked until very shortly before his death, said, “You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.� PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). What you own becomes a time-consuming issue, and in all likelihood, the hours passed in maintaining and/or fighting for your possessions won’t be among the most pleasant of the week. Consider relieving yourself of dead-weight assets. Think of the animals who own nothing and seem mostly satisfied with it. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You have been known to plan your life far in advance, though this year a key part of your plan is not to plan. Your big ambition will be matched by the huge amount of faith you have in the magic of the universe. You’ll be tuned in to whispers of fate, and you’ll seize opportunities that you couldn’t have possibly plotted out for yourself. Someone will invest in you in February. You’ll travel in March. April will bring a creative influence. tws


Banned in Boise Jon rated this movie



henever a film garners an NC-17 rating (what we used to call an X rating) there is going to be some level of notoriety. Such is the case with the new film Shame that was recently banned in Boise. It can seem to be hard to make sexually explicit material completely devoid of eroticism, but Shame manages to do the trick. The story of a thirty-something Manhattan advertising executive dealing with a sexual addiction is neither compelling nor interesting, leaving the viewer both frustrated and wishing he had his two hours back. Addiction has been tackled in a number of films, mostly drug and love addictions. Sexual addiction is a little more difficult, although its base impulses remain the same no matter what

the substance. For the filmmaker, there is the choice of using sexually explicit imagery and the rating that the film is sure to get. Let’s face it—a PG rating is sure going to reach a wider audience than an X rating. But the sex in Shame, directed by Brit Steve McQueen, neither moves the story forward nor seems the least bit interesting. Perhaps that’s because there is little story to speak of other than a deeply lonely man stalking the streets of a barren Manhattan searching for anonymous sex. McQueen tries to liven up the proceedings with a heavy dose of style, including an incredibly long tracking shot through Chelsea, but the substance is lacking. But it’s not the fault of the two leads, Michael Fassbender (super-hot in films at the moment) and Carey Mulligan from An Education. Fassbender has a look and intensity that make him highly watchable even if the material lets him down. And Mulligan, doing an unnecessary full frontal nude scene, continues to impress with a rare and compelling talent. To bad it’s wasted here. tws

January: Nat’l Stalking Awareness Month The Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault announces that January is National Stalking Awareness Month, a time to focus on a crime that affects 3.4 million victims a year. This year’s theme, “Stalking: Know It. Name It. Stop It.”, challenges the nation to fight this dangerous crime by learning more about it. Stalking is difficult to recognize, investigate, and prosecute. Stalkers fit no standard psychological profile, and many stalkers follow their victims from one jurisdiction to another, making it difficult for authorities to investigate and prosecute their crimes. Stalking is a problem for approximately 14 percent of the people who use The Advocates’ services. To promote awareness and public education about stalking during the month, The Advocates will distribute free stalking brochures and present a FREE SELF-DEFENSE CLASS for adult and teen women with Gary Petersen, 5th Dan Kukkiwon Black Belt and head instructor, Sun Valley

Taekwondo, toward the end of the month in Hailey. Contact Trish Tobias, The Advocates’ Community Education Coordinator at (208) 788-4191 or for more information. The “Know it. Name it. Stop it.” webinar series includes: Stalking: Name It - Tuesday, January 17 at 10 a.m. Learn about the link between stalking and domestic violence, the link between stalking and sexual assault, and stalkers’ patterns of behaviors. Stalking: Stop It - Tuesday, January 24 at 10 a.m. Learn about the impact of stalking on victims, the use of stalking logs to document the crime, and the importance of safety planning with victims. To register for the stalking awareness webinar series, visit For more information about the webinar series, contact Jennifer Landhuis at or call 1-208-384-0419, ext. 303.

Schneider Fears No Heights

Toastmasters Give Help BY KAREN BOSSICK



rudi Schneider, a longtime skier on Baldy, rode the chairlift above the valley clouds over the weekend, as she discussed her past as a gymnast and high diver. She owed her lack of fear when it comes to heights, she said, to her father who learned to high dive while a prisoner of war in Arizona during World War II. Slightly colder temperatures over the weekend allowed Baldy to pour on the manmade snow and crowds were light, even though Sun Valley is offering snow-starved skiers from still-closed Bogus Basin discounted skiing.

he butterflies began building in Rick Ryerson’s stomach as he prepared to take a business proposition before the planning and zoning commission. To prepare, he sought out the help of the local Toastmasters Club. Ryerson gave a 10-minute speech on a subject of his choice. Then he presented a couple of short extemporaneous speeches on topics suggested by attendees. Then he sat back and listened carefully as the two dozen listeners in the room offered suggestions on how he could improve. “I had been so nervous. But that helped me feel comfortable as I prepared to make my presentations before the P&Z,� he said. The non-profit Toastmasters International has been helping businessmen and others become more confident speakers and leaders since 1924. Today, Toastmasters International has more than a quarter million members worldwide in more than 12,500 clubs. The Wood River Valley group is not as formal as most. Attendees meet around wine and a potluck dinner. Then they get down to the business of public speaking. One or two people offer a prepared or extemporaneous speech of about 10 minutes. Others volunteer to offer two-minute spiels on hot-button topics of the night, which have ranged from Tom Luna’s education reforms to whether a Starbucks should be allowed at the Sun Valley Visitor Center.

The Wizard of Ahhhs counts the “ahhs� each speaker makes. A grammarian offers up a word of the day—“detritus,� for example, which refers to the debris that accumulates in offices and garages. Others offer brief constructive evaluations of various speakers. Though designed to help businessmen, the topics are far from boring treatises on business protocol. During one recent meeting, for instance, former Bellevue mayor Steve Fairbrother told about how he—a veterinarian—had decided to become a vegetarian. And Peggy Hollitz described how what Americans call the “bathroom� and the British the “loo� was adapted from French “lieu� for place. Then she offered another example of how different people use different words to describe the same thing: When Winston Churchill asked for a chicken breast and was told it was “white meat,� the next time he sent a corsage to a woman he wrote, “please pin this on your white meat.� “I remember going to my first Toastmasters and being terrified,� said Ketchum filmmaker Ed LaGrande. “It’s helped me immensely to speak quickly on my feet—and that’s after lecturing to students for three years with the help of notes.� “I just love to listen to all the different points of views,� said Don Riddle, who recently gave a talk on his hero Amos Alonzo Stagg, who pioneered many innovations in both football and basketball. Ketchum’s Toastmasters attracts a variety of ethnicities,

from a transplanted Italian woman to an Indian businessman. Both offer unique perspectives on topics like socialized medicine in Europe, arranged marriages and the challenge of dealing with the rising countries of India and China. “What I like about it is that you never know what fascinating person is going to walk through the door, nor where the conversation is going to lead,� said Hollitz, a Ketchum travel agent. “It always amazes me the intellect we get. And it’s always educational—you come away thinking, ‘I hadn’t thought of that.’ � Many of those who attend Toastmasters get hooked on the stimulating discussions that the speeches provoke. For them, it’s more of a social thing than something to further their business. But eventually all are provoked to get up and talk, even if it’s just a two-minute point-counterpoint. “Toastmasters is important to me because I have diarrhea of the mouth and in this day and age time is so precious that it’s important to get your point across in a short period of time,� said Pawan Mehra. “Toastmasters teaches us that time is a valuable resource and that we all must communicate our thoughts and ideas in allocated time. And that’s valuable for anyone.� tws

Toastmasters meets at 6 p.m. the third Wednesday of each month at various members’ homes. The next meeting will start at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, at the home of Steve and Leslie Fairbrother, 950 Buckhorn Drive in Hailey. Information: 721-1057 or 726-9586.

Zagreb is one of the World Cup circuit’s favorite venues. In spite of the fact that there were no Croatian skiers in the slalom, the warm weather brought out 8,000 spectators who cheered everyone. A long course, warm weather and soft snow made for a long day. Marlies’ philosophy is ‘just go have fun, don’t worry, be happy, and train hard.’ Her margin of victory over Tina Maze was 1:40 seconds. Third-place finisher Michela Kirschgasser finished 2:27 seconds behind. Lindsay Vonn, one of two Americans to finish, was ninth. She skis the slalom because she wants to win the overall title, and she rarely posts a DNF. In the men’s slalom, held at night, the crowd waited and roared for hometown 2010 overall champ Ivica Kostelic, who finished third. Marcel Hirscher of Austria once again topped the podium for his first win here. Kostelic considers Marcel the heir apparent, the leader of a new generation of young Austrian talent. It was a very tight race, with small fractions separating the top four finishers. After a day off, some of the racers moved to Adelboden for the giant slalom. It had snowed three feet the day before and the crews had to scramble to get the

course ready for the next day’s 10:30 a.m. start. Fresh off his slalom win, the ‘Snow King’ of Zagreb, Marcel Hirscher won the ‘Classic’ here, though barely. His idol, Benny Raisch, sixth after the first run, finished second, and Massiliano Blardone placed third. Ted Ligety (fourth) was having a great run until an error on the bottom cost him the podium. Conditions changed on the course as fresh snow fell between runs. What was fast, bumpy and icy turned soft and rutted. Bode Miller was a first-run DNF, and many others crashed in front of the 29,000 fans. Meanwhile, the women had to deal with conditions in Austria’s Bad Kleinkirschheim (BKK); 75-mile-per-hour winds the day before swept through the Carinthian Mountains and cancelled the second training run. A lot of debris had to be cleared. This was a course most racers had never seen. Lindsay Vonn was sixth here in 2006. The top two gates were hell, forcing the skiers to plant their skis sideways to the hill, and could never ski on even camber. Elisabeth Goergl got her first-ever downhill win. Julia Mancuso of the U.S. was second, just .16 seconds off the pace. Fabienne Suter was third. Lindsay Vonn, fighting a stomach flu, landed on her hip coming around the second gate, but bounced back up, made up the lost time and finished .55 seconds behind, in fourth. The hard-surface windpack was underlain by a micro-terrain of bumps. The unusually sharp

turns, blind knolls, fast flats and a bumpy piste forced the women to fight their way down the hill, a way of life in World Cup skiing. Lindsay Vonn retained her downhill and overall category leads. Back in Adelboden on Sunday, the 9th of January, Marcel Hirscher skied through heavy snow and fog to take his third consecutive slalom race of the week—and his fifth win of the season. Ivica Kostelic was a close second. Marcel took chances on the last 10 gates Kostelic didn’t want to risk. Constant snow made the famed Chuenisbargli course even tougher, and many posted DNFs on the first run. The best U.S. finisher was Nolan Kasper in ninth. Finally, in Bad Kleinkirschheim, birthday girl Fabienne Suter of Switzerland won her first Super-G. Tina Maze took second and Anna Fenninger of Austria took third. Four of the top seven finishers were Swiss, and finished within a second of each other. Slovenian Tina Maze remarked that on these steep, fast hills, “sometimes you just don’t know where you are on the course.� Vonn, 18th, and Mancuso, eighth, both were good on top but lost speed in the middle compression part of the course and could never make it up. One thing I notice with ski racing, particularly with the Austrians, is that no one thanks God for their podium run. The credit always goes to the training. tws

send us your recipe. When we run yours, you get a $20 gift card to Albertsons!


Here are some green tips for dog and cat owners. Buy natural and organic pet food; some pet foods actually have euthanized animal meat in them called “meat meal.” Always read the product labels. Avoid products that have a long list of chemicals. Buy biodegradable cat litters, like ones made from pine. Avoid litters containing clumping agents; it can get into the cat’s digestive tract, and has caused the death of many cats and kittens… or skip the litter and toilet-train your cat! Avoid flea/tick products with toxic chemical ingredients. Comfortis, Program and Sentinel are pills that the Natural Resources Defense Counsel has tested and that have passed their safety test. Brewer’s yeast and garlic also make very good repellents. Avoid shampoos that contain chemicals; instead, use plain shampoo or soap and water. Does your pet drink water from the toilet? Not good if you use toxic cleaners. Buy eco-friendly cleaners or make your own out of baking soda and vinegar. Keep the lid down. Pets love to play; make sure to buy ecofriendly toys. Grow catnip for your cat. Tie a cork to a string, or use a feather for a toy. Make your own dog toys at NEVER buy old stuffed children’s toys; they contain fire retardant that is fatal to animals. Use a safe antifreeze [like Sierra] to prevent threats to your pets in case of leakage. And please, always pick up after your dog! Thank you!!

UI-Blaine Extension Tips

Positive Youth Development, 4-H Program

The University of Idaho Blaine County Extension office has an extensive 4-H youth development program featuring a variety of Positive Youth Development activities that build life skills among youth. 4-H is housed in the land-grant universities and, therefore, uses research-based programming to give 4-H youth the hands-on real world experience they need to become leaders. Research shows that youth participating in three or more hours a week of out-of-school activities are more likely to succeed in a number of areas, including: 1) positive and sustained adult-youth relations; 2) stronger community involvement and civic engagement; 3) long-term education; and 4) are less likely to be associated with risk behaviors and depression (crime, drugs and alcohol). In fact, Tufts University is conducting a longitudinal study, which started in 2002, titled “The 4-H Study of Positive Youth Development.” The results to date provide strong evidence that when the strengths of youth are aligned with the resources for healthy development that are found in families, schools and communities, youth thrive. For a complete detailed report on the ongoing Tufts University study please visit: http:// ase.tuf t yd/do cument s/ 4HStudyAnnualReport2008.pdf You can be a part of Positive Youth Development by contacting the University of Idaho Blaine County Extension office to learn how you and your child can get involved in 4-H. There is always a need for adult volunteers to help lead the 4-H clubs and programs that impact and shape our Blaine County youth.

ost people in the U.S. pray for good weather, especially in winter. Not Bali Szabo us. We could use some bad weather. Bring it on! Ski resorts in general all across the U.S. are lacking snow. Last year, the San Juans of Colorado had 500 inches, which was 420 percent over normal. This year, Colorado got some snow just in time for the Aspen/Beaver Creek Alpine World Cup races. Nothing since. New England got dumped on in October. It promptly all melted. It is still melting. This was supposed to be a good year for snow in the northern U.S., a La Niña year. The distribution of cold and warm water masses of the Pacific Ocean decide which year will be El Niño (named for the Christ child because it usually starts around Christmas) or La Niña. Most years are normal, when the cool eastern Pacific waters (La Niña) are balanced by the warm western Pacific waters (El Niño). Meteorologists have only been studying and recording these two opposite conditions since the mid-’90s, so beyond the basics, we know little about them, except that no two are the same. This year, the jet stream flowing across from the Himalayas is turning north and the storms are going into the weather tunnel located between Mt. Rainier and Mt. Hood, across the waterways of Puget Sound and the Columbia River. During Christmas week, four storms were lined up like semis at a weigh station, and they all funneled through that area, too far north to do us any good. Also, we’re getting nothing from the south, hence the drought in Utah and Colorado. I’ve spent decades in New England, which has the most complex weather in the U.S. In the Temperate Zone, between 30 and 60 degrees latitude, the prevailing winds push all weather from west to east. Almost all weather affecting the U.S. ends up in New England. (One major exception, Tornado Alley, which relies on southwestern air flows along the Frontal Range of Colorado). With the help of some excellent weathermen, I learned a lot about weather systems. Then, as an outdoor photographer, I was captivated by the beauty of the skies. Before the advent of computer-generated weather forecasts and satellites, farmers, mariners and aviators learned

to read the skies for upcoming weather. Animals can sense a calamity or a weather change by instinct, like the elephants of Aceh heading for high ground well before there were any signs of a tsunami. Humans, dependent on the weather, learn from experience. Even today, reading the skies is the best indicator of what’s actually going on. Too bad the media weather press releases don’t understand that. Weather is like real estate and politics— it’s local, and all about location. Western weather is easy; it’s straightforward. We’re semi-arid, and we get 250-plus sunny days per year. We don’t get much weather, and what we do get comes from one basic source, the Pacific. I’ve learned how to read the skies here. For instance, right before New Year’s Eve we got an inch of wet snow in the Valley. Typically, it fell overnight and the next day the skies were slowly breaking up and the clouds were moving out. By mid-afternoon, the orange streaks in the southern skies past Bellevue clearly showed we were at the southern edge of a northern system. The conclusion was simple. We missed it, as we often do. Overhead patches of blue and a thin ceiling were harbingers of fair weather. The radio said otherwise. At 5 p.m., 17 hours after the storm had passed, they were broadcasting “Winter storm warnings… snow early and late… 6 or more inches of accumulation.” I looked up at the sky and said, ‘You’re nuts!’ Sure enough, clearing winds howled through the Valley around midnight, and the day dawned crystal clear. Alas, it’s been clear ever since. tws If you have question or comments, contact Bali at this e-mail:

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I need your help. I recently retired from my job of 20 years, but my wife wasn't ready for me to stop working yet. After only six months she wanted to send me back out into the work force. So I scanned the classifieds and went on a few job interviews. The problem is my lazy eye. Although I'm not a lazy person, my eye gives people the wrong impression. I have no trouble functioning, but when I'm on an interview, people either stare at it or think that I'm unintelligent. Although no one comes out and asks me about it, I know it's a factor when they reject me. Can you help? How can I let people know that it's my eye that's lazy, not me?

• • •

Carry: Considering your wife

has been the motivation for you to go back to work, it's likely you haven't shown much enthusiasm on an interview. After all, six months is not a very long time to enjoy your retirement. Cash: If your resume is getting you an interview, but you're not getting the job, then it's obvious you are not impressing the employer. You may want to assess all the factors that could be affecting your interview, not just your

Fast Facts Lazy Eye

Duane “Cash� Holze & Todd “Carry� Holze 1/8/12 ŠThe Classified GuysŽ

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have perfect eyesight. "Lazy Eye", medically known as Amblyopia, affects approximately 3 out of every 100 children. It is a medical condition where the brain and one of the eyes do not properly work together, often caused by an imbalance in the positioning of the two eyes. If discovered as a child, the condition is often treatable with eye exercises that make the child favor the weaker eye. However, if untreated into adulthood, the therapy tends to be less successful.

It's the Law eye condition. Carry: After being at the same job for the past twenty years, your interviewing techniques may be a bit rusty. So be sure to consider how you handle yourself during the process. Do you appear confident and knowledgeable or do you appear self-conscious about your qualifications or eye condition? Cash: Although physical appearances can give an impression to an interviewer, employers are not permitted to base their decisions on medical conditions that don't affect job performance. Carry: It may be that your lazy eye bothers you more that your potential employer. If you feel

self-conscious, it may be showing through during your interview. Cash: However, if you suspect that an interviewer is noticing your eye instead of you, then take charge and focus the conversation on your skills and qualifications. Consider asking the interviewer a question. Not many people can focus on your eye condition and have a active conversation at the same time. Carry: If you approach each interview enthusiastically, then you'll leave a good impression despite any physical condition. And, with any luck, you'll find a job that makes both you and your wife happy.

The Americans with Disabilities Act took effect in 1992 and makes it illegal for any company with more than 15 employees to discriminate against qualified individuals with a disability. This policy applies to job applications, hiring, firing, promotions and other privileges of employment. Although an employer may not ask specifics about an applicant's disability, they are permitted to ask about one's ability to perform job functions. As with any applicant, employment must be based on the person's qualifications for the job. •


Reader Humor Blind Spot

My first job out of college was for a company that transcribes audiotapes into brail for blind people. Since the previous supervisor was retiring after 16 years in the position, he graciously offered to stay on for a few weeks to help me get settled. However, unlike myself, the retiring supervisor was blind. After a few days of working side by side, I was feeling very overwhelmed with all the responsibilities. One day while we were having lunch together, I told my predecessor that I was feeling stressed about the job. "I'm just not sure I can keep up with everything," I explained. "There's no need to worry," my blind comrade encouraged. "In a few weeks you'll be doing this job with your eyes closed. (Thanks to Simon V.)
