Where Am I Going? BY CONNIE LOVE


ho am I? Who do I want to be? How am I going to get there? Stop for a moment and pretend you are walking down the street with a friend who is giving you directions to Hailey. There is a couple behind you talking about how to reach a destination in Stanley. Do you change your plans and go to Stanley? Of course not. You simply treat the conversation as a minor distraction. You ignore it, and concentrate on how to get to Hailey. Unfortunately, we too often fail to ignore the distracting voices in our minds when it comes to our own futures. If we continue to be lost in our own minds, we will never really get to know who we really are, much less arrive at the proper destinations. Begin to notice your thoughts. Become aware of your dreams. Distinguish between what you are watching and who you really are. If you really want to grow, be aware of the “person inside.� When irrelevant chatter begins, relax and learn to lean away from it. In other words, be aware of the distracting thought and give it room to pass through. Ask yourself if the thought is serving you well; if not, let it keep passing. We usually cause most of our mental anguish by amplifying and overemphasizing our thoughts. Instead, learn to be in the seat of quiet. It will let you look at the reality and then make a decision. You will have true freedom of yourself, not from yourself. At the same time, remember that change is the very nature of life. When we try to create situations that we think will make us be OK and they don’t work, we become fearful. Remember to sit back and let the fear, too, pass through. Don’t try and fix it. Harmonize and work with it. You will learn how to interface and interact with life. Letting go of fear is not letting go of life. When you learn to sit back and listen to your voice, you begin to learn to see if that voice is really giving you good advice and if it is serving you. You can take the higher road instead of reacting to life. Connie Love, a certified life coach, can be reached at 208-720-2216 or Additional information is available at tws

Hummingbird Flits Into Hall of Fame STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


e looks like a bumblebee in the distance, buzzing up a long hill on Billy’s Bridge and scissoring his way right past other skate skiers out for a “Sunday stroll.� At 65, “The Hummingbird Man,� as he’s been nicknamed for his constant need to be on the move, may be bragging about how little he paid out of pocket for cataract surgery now that he’s a card-carrying Medicare member. But you won’t find Bob Rosso retiring to a rocking chair any time soon—or giving up his tireless promotion of the sport of Nordic skiing in Sun Valley. On Jan. 30 he will be inducted into the Sun Valley Ski Hall of Fame in a ceremony at the nexStage Theatre. Hall of Fame inductees are chosen because they excel in their sport and have given back. And Rosso has easily done both—from winning the first Boulder Mountain Tour in 1973 to plotting many of the Nordic trails that now make up the Blaine County Recreation District’s 140 kilometers of trails. Rosso was not a Nordic skier when

Longtime sales clerk Nappy Neaman irons Bob Rosso’s shirt to make it look good for his Hall of Fame picture. “What’s rewarding about the Hall of Fame is the number of people who show up of all different backgrounds,� Rosso said. “Sometimes we kinda forget we have this huge history in skiing.�

he came to Sun Valley in 1970. Having grown up on a California chicken farm on Lido Island, he was a Yosemite rock climber and a surfer boy who had swam on a national championship swimming team at Cal-State at Long Beach. But one of his beach buddies came back with stories about a secret powder stash known as Sun Valley where there was no one to ski all the powder. Rosso spent a winter playing in Sun Valley. Then he went to Mexico for a month after the ski lifts shut down and picked up his clothes in California on the way back through. He set up a climbing school for Snug Mountaineering and opened The Elephant’s Perch in 1976 in a white clapboard building that once was the home of Horace Lewis, who operated the Big Hitch ore wagons that used to haul silver and lead from area mines. When Rob Kiesel took over Leif Odmark’s fledgling Nordic ski team in 1972, convincing the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation to include it in its program, Rosso pitched in even though he only knew how to coach swimming. “Kiesel was such a pioneer—he’s wellrespected in Norway because he taught the Norwegians so much they didn’t

know,� Rosso said of the former U.S. Nordic Ski Team head who was inducted into the Hall of Fame before his death in 2011. “He was so knowledgeable about waxes— he was wax technician for the U.S. Ski Team and had a long career with Swix. In the old days they’d run green wax on the whole ski and Rob figured out how to put a little alpine glide wax on the tail and tip and kick wax under the foot. “We’d hold the klister with a pair of pliers and use a blow torch to heat it up to let it drip into a pot. Then we’d paintbrush it on the kids’ skis because we had 30 skis to wax. Of course, the kids would get it all over their sweaters.� In those days Nordic skis were made out of birch or hickory—the ends would snap off when the kids crashed, Rosso recalled. When American Bill Koch introduced skate skiing at the 1976 Innsbruck Olympics, the locals began cutting the tails and tips off their classic skis to make them shorter for skating. “I remember one race out at Elkhorn where the racers first began to wax with no kick wax so they could skate the whole way,� Rosso recalled.

Everest Tale Will Benefit Compassionate Young Leaders BY KAREN BOSSICK


roughton Coburn, author of the forthcoming book, “The Vast Unknown,� will present a look at the first American expedition to Mount Everest at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23, at the Community Campus Performing Arts Theater in Hailey. Admission is by donation, with the proceeds going to the Compassionate Young Leaders Program. Coburn will offer a sneak preview of his story—the people, their expedition and what happened to them in the years that followed—in the presentation. The expedition will celebrate its 50th anniversary this spring. As a special treat, Dr. David Dingman, a Hailey doctor who accompanied that expedition, will share his reflections. The first American to plant a flag atop Everest was Jim Whittaker, whose brother Lou and nephew Peter have homes in Sun Valley. The 21-member team, made up of men from the Cascades of Washington and the Tetons of Wyoming, suffered a death in the Ice Fall on the second day of climbing. The climbers quibbled about whether to take the easier, already climbed South Col route or the daring, untried West Ridge. There was even an outlaw attempt by the grandson of president Woodrow Wilson. Eventually, six climbers ascended the world’s tallest mountain. But what happened

after the expedition was even more remarkable, says Coburn. In one case, the CIA recruited the climbers for a clandestine operation to place a surveillance device to spy on China. And then there was the redemptive story of Barry Corbet who was paralyzed in a helicopter crash while shooting a ski film and went on to become an advocate for people with disabilities. The Compassionate Young Leaders Program sent several high school students to India last summer. It hopes to send 15 high school members this year to “climb the summit of compassionate citizenship through local and international service tws projects.�

ast winter I took our readers to the Himalayas, and in the grip of winter, a return to the Land of Snows is appropriate. The 30-day trek in 1976 took 14 of us along the Tibetan border in an area of Nepal that remains rarely visited to this day, the Rolwaling Valley. There was one strategic problem with this route to the Khumbu and the Everest trail. At the head of the valley rose an imposing range of 21,000-foot mountains. The only opening route was the 19,000-foot glaciated Tesi Lapscha pass. We were well into September and the remnants of the monsoon lingered this far north. The preceding three days had been wet and cold, especially at the end and start of days. The sherpas were worried. It was snowing on the pass. For us, it had to stop snowing and the snow had to set up and harden. We had to cross this pass. The alternative was to go back, hike to the airstrip at Jiri, and call it a trip, a retreat with dashed hopes and dreams, and good money lost. The trip of a lifetime hung in the balance.

pproximately 4 million pair of eyeglasses are buried in landfills in North America each year. Contrast that to people who need but cannot afford eyeglasses, around 1 billion world citizens. Your outmoded prescription lenses could make a big difference in someone else’s life because decent vision can transform the odds for getting an education or earning a living for your family. A number of Valley businesses will connect your old glasses to those who need them. Drop those eyeglasses at the Eye Centers in Ketchum and Hailey to be collected by the Lions Club for dispersal to developing countries. Sun Valley Eyeworks in Ketchum gathers glasses for Doctors Without Borders, primarily for distribution in Mexico.

All these organizations can utilize reading glasses and sunglasses, in any frames, and are in particular need of kids’ sizes.

Advocates Seek Videotapes for V-Day Event BY KAREN BOSSICK

“What we’re interested in is people talking about how we’re not okay with bullying, intimidation, stalking— all that.”


he Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault is looking for a few good people to “rise” with Robert Redford, Lily Tomlin and others as part of the worldwide One Billion Rising campaign. The organization is soliciting short videos from people talking, singing—maybe even dancing—about why they’re rising to include in its V-Day: The Advocates 2013 event, which will be held Feb. 22 and 23. The videos will be made into a short movie to be shown that night. People can make their own video using their phone. Or they can make an anonymous video at The Advocates, which has screen and sound filters to allow them to remain anonymous. “What we’re interested in is people talking about how we’re not okay with bullying, intimidation, stalking—all that,” said Lisa Huttinger, The Advocates’ events and development coordinator. The Advocates V-Day event will include a reading of “A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant and a Prayer,” directed by Patsy Wygle and Keith Moore. The script, by “Vagina Monologues” author Eve Ensler, was created from a collection of essays by Jane Fonda and others that points up the need to address violence against women. The evening will also feature a One Billion Rising dance performance by the Dirty Feet Dance Company of Hailey who will lead the rise up and dance call to action.

–LISA HUTTINGER The Advocates’ Events and Development Coordinator

“I love that they’re just a collection of people who love dance,” said Huttinger. “They’re not professional but they dance with a lot of emotion and energy.” The performance will start at 7 p.m. at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Tickets are $30—$15 for students. The event is a benefit for The Advocates, as well as a call to build and maintain healthy relationships. V-Day is a global activist movement started 14 years ago to stop violence against females. One Billion Rising, an escalation of the V-Day movement, hopes to get one billion women—and men—to “rise up, dance and demand an end to the violence.” For information, contact Huttinger at lisa@theadvocatesorg. org or call 208-788-4191. tws


Ketchum Seeks Artists for ‘Cover Art,’ City’s Utility Box Project The City of Ketchum is encouraging artists in the Western U.S. to apply for its “Cover Art” project, a public art project whereby vinyl images of original art are applied on selected utility boxes throughout the city. Commissioned artists will receive $1,000 per utility box, and there is no fee to apply. The deadline for initial submissions is March 4, 2013. This will be the second installation of Cover Art. In early fall 2012, six wrapped utility boxes featuring the work of Idaho artists were unveiled throughout the city, and will remain in place for approximately three years. Since the project has been received so favorably within the community, it is being expanded in 2013 to include an

additional five boxes. Cover Art is organized and curated by the Ketchum Arts Commission. Cover Art is intended to create vitality throughout the city by transforming otherwise mundane infrastructure into engaging works of art. The application process takes place in two stages. The first is a Request for Qualifications, and the second, a Request for Proposals. The call for artists, which provides detailed information on the application process, can be found at www. or by contacting the office of Jen Smith, Director of Parks & Recreation, at jsmith@ketchumidaho. org or 208-726-7820.

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.

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.

hris Crowley got people’s attention with the book “Younger Next Year,” which described how the Geritol generation can continue to live like 50-year-olds staving off the decay normally associated with aging well into their eighties. Now he’s back in Sun Valley to talk about his new book, “Thinner This Year,” which he co-authored with Jen Sacheck, a nutritionist and exercise physiologist from Tufts University. Crowley will speak at 3 and 5 p.m. Friday at the Wood River Community YMCA in Ketchum. The 3 p.m. talk was added after the 5 p.m. talk sold out. Tickets are $10 for Y members and $15 for non-members. “The first was a why-to book. This is a how-to book,” said Crowley. “You don’t have to read the first one to read this. But they are nice companion books.” While it may be a “nice companion” to what’s been called “the boomer’s bible,” “Thinner This Year” is not one of those warm fuzzy diet books that coddle you. It’s blunt about the absolute necessity to change and brutally honest with its prescription: Don’t eat “dead food”—that is, junk food that is high in calories and useless nutritionally—even if they do resurrect Hostess Twinkies. Eat 20 percent less and be more mindful about the food you eat. Cover half your plate with fruits and vegetables. Eat less meat and make it lean. Avoid SOFAS—solid fats, added sugars. And don’t drink your calories. Oh, and just for good measure, exercise 45 to 60 minutes a day six days a week. FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. “There’s no bologna in this book,” said Crowley. “But this is important stuff. And, when you do this, you can throw away your supplements. You can avoid more than 50 percent of serious illness—and accidents. And you can put off 70 percent of your normal aging until the end of life.” Crowley, a former Wall Street lawyer who now lives in Aspen, Colo., had to go about the painful task of stripping away his favorite foods, including French baguettes, at the bequest of his co-author, a nutritional drill sergeant who is currently examining how nutrients, fitness and obesity impact diabetes and cardiovascular disease for the National Institutes of Health. Now, he says, vegetables are his new best friend, as are things he’d never tried before, such as farro, an ancient nuttytasting grain believed to have sustained the Roman legions. And, he points out, taking 15 pounds off not only took the pressure off his joints but revolutionized his bike riding as much as if he’d paid thousands

Jen Sacheck, shown here with Chris Crowley, says that that excess fat roll sitting around our middles is toxic. courtesy photo

of dollars for the lightest weight bike on the market. “One thing I hadn’t realized is how stored fat—that roll around our middle—breeds inflammation. It sends out inflammatory signals that promote decay. Inflammation is the source of almost all debilitating and deadly diseases,” Crowley said. The first half of the book describes things like insulin resistance and offers suggestions for healthy foods to eat and ways to prepare them. The second half examines exercise, sports nutrition and how muscles work. It also outlines the “25 Sacred Exercises,” with suggestions for making them easier or more difficult. Writing about it was easy for Sacheck, who completed a fouryear, post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School examining muscle health. And it was great fun for Crowley, who at 79 still rides his bike up to a hundred miles a day, skis double black diamond moguls and can match the top 10 percent of men ages 40 through 49 when it comes to aerobic capacity. “We take you inside your body and show you how your body works. You see what happens when you eat right, what happens when you exercise,” Crowley said. “We’ve got billions of signals going on all the time in our body and this shows how exercise changes those. Changes in lifestyle can have a more profound effect on your quality of life, your length of life, than anything else—even medicine.” tws

There are stories about our local history, the Peaveys, sheep ranching, Sun Valley, Ketchum, Hailey, as well as dozens of photographs of the Festival and our beautiful area. Linda Cortright, editor and publisher of Wild Fibers, was here for the Festival in October. See the cover at www.

Family of Woman Film Fest Garners Two Oscar Nominees STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


few months ago Peggy Goldwyn was wondering how she could top last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family of Woman Film Festival, which brought filmmaker Daniel Junge and Dr. Mohammad Jawad to Sun Valley just days after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d received an Oscar for their film â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saving Face.â&#x20AC;? Turns out that two of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films have been nominated for Academy Awards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Invisible Warâ&#x20AC;? has been nominated for Best Documentary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;War Witchâ&#x20AC;? has been nominated for Best Foreign Film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After last year, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dare hope, but this is incredible!â&#x20AC;? said Goldwyn. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film festival will be held March 1 through 3 at the Sun Valley Opera House. And, if last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sell-out crowd for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saving Faceâ&#x20AC;? is any indication, it should field another bumper crop of attendees. Goldwyn said the filmmakers of the Academy Award nominees will be here for their films; also, the filmmaker for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The World Before Her,â&#x20AC;? which won Best Documentary at Toronto this year.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had so many filmmakers appearing as this year. Each year I simply wonder if we can find enough films for a festival, and each year I am amazed,â&#x20AC;? Goldwyn added. Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin, executive director of the United Nations Population Fund and under-secretary general of the United Nations, will return to inaugurate the festival. Kate Gilmore, deputy director of the United Nations Population Fund and former head of Amnesty International, will discuss â&#x20AC;&#x153;Women and Warâ&#x20AC;? in a free speech at The Community Library at 6 p.m. Feb. 28. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Invisible War,â&#x20AC;? which explores sexual assault toward U.S. servicewomen by their own troops, will be shown at 6 p.m. Friday, March 1. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weapon of War,â&#x20AC;? which concentrates on Democratic Republic of Congo soldiers who commit rape and other acts of terrorism, will be shown at 3 p.m. Saturday, March 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The World Before Her,â&#x20AC;? an Indian documentary contrasting women vying to become Miss India with those attending a Hindu fundamentalist boot camp, will be shown at 7 p.m.


Sun Valley Film Festival Nears, Brings the First-Ever Sun Valley Screen Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lab The Sun Valley Film Festival kicks off March 14th with Spirit Award nominee Will McCormack hosting the first-ever Sun Valley Screenwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lab. The Lab will be accepting original screenplays and television pilots from aspiring screenwriters, and the three SVSLab finalists will be awarded lodging, passes to the Film Festival and admission to the half-day Screenwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lab. The winner will witness their work come alive during a table read of local and professional actors. Participants of the Lab will hear McCormack speak candidly about the ascent of his own career as a writer/actor, field questions of the trade and discuss how he took matters upon himself to finally produce this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s break-out smash hit, Celeste & Jesse Forever. Tickets are $25, and include a whiskey reception at the end of the Lab. The entire festival runs March 14 through 17 with new cutting-edge independent films, premieres, exciting

childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programming, previews of new television series, fabulous parties, engaging coffee talks with filmmakers and industry insiders, intimate filmmaker dinners, après-ski gatherings, a screenwriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lab, spectacular closing awards ceremony and more. Over three days, the Festival will screen more than 60 different films and each day will begin with a Coffee Talkâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a morning series where filmmakers and industry experts engage the audience in a range of topics. Some notable film producers/directors already committed to participate in 2013 include Jim Burke, The Descendents; Josh Pate, Mirror Mirror; Will McCormack, Celeste & Jesse Forever; and Jonas Pate, Shrink. The Sun Valley Film Festival is currently accepting films in all categories, including shorts, mixed-media, animation, featurelength documentaries and narratives, and this year thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a special category for young filmmakers.

Dr. Mohammad Jawad spoke with some of the sell-out crowd that turned out to see â&#x20AC;&#x153;Saving Faceâ&#x20AC;? following the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing at the Sun Valley Opera House.

Saturday, March 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Words of Witness,â&#x20AC;? an Egyptian documentary about a journalist following the course of change in her country, will be shown at 3 p.m. Sunday, March 3. â&#x20AC;&#x153;War Witch,â&#x20AC;? which follows a young girl in the Democratic Republic of Congo as her village is raided by rebels, her family murdered and she is kidnapped to become a child soldier, will conclude the festival at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 3. Information: tws

Hailey resident Lucy Bourret was among those who lined up to have her picture taken with the Oscar statuette, which filmmaker Daniel Junge had first handled himself just five days earlier.

Should the City of Hailey appeal the recent court decision regarding Old Cutters? important facts and information regarding Hailey’s recent appeal decision: ➢ the Judge ruled that the city’s annexation fee demand for old cutters greatly exceeded any city costs for old cutters, and was illegal. ➢ the Judge also found the city’s community housing requirement for old cutters was illegal. ➢ as per the testimony of the city administrator Heather dawson under oath, the actual cost to the city for the cutter annexation was less than $788,000. since cutters has already paid the city $1.3 million dollars, the City has profited significantly from the Cutters annexation. ➢ the city has already spent over $120,000.00 of taxpayers’ dollars to pursue this dispute, which resulted in a loss in federal court. ➢ due to its loss, old cutters has the right to seek an award of the attorneys’ fees and costs that it was forced to expend in the litigation, which total approximately $60,000. old cutters offered to waive its right to this reimbursement if the city did not appeal the decision, but the city rejected this offer out of hand. ➢ if the city decides to appeal, it will likely spend an additional $100,000.00 of its taxpayers’ money, with a very unlikely chance of overthrowing the judge’s decision. in addition, the city will likely be held liable for the additional fees Old Cutters is forced to expend on the appeal. In all, the City could find itself spending over $350,000 of the taxpayers’ money in pursuing this dispute. ➢ before the judge ruled his decision in favor of cutters, the city rejected multiple settlement offers by Cutters. This presents a further financial loss due to city decision makers’ resistance to working proactively with cutters. ➢ if the city does not appeal, 10 new homes are currently slated for development during the summer of 2013, all to be built by local contractors/ sub-contractors. at an average of $300k per home, $3M will be spent on construction, providing income and job opportunities for local contractors and real estate agents. ➢ While $3M will be spent immediately on construction, according to the idaho Mountain express, these monies will be re-spent 10 times in a year—which generates an injection of over $30M into the local economy. This would be created from just the first summer of development at Cutters. It is reasonable to expect at least this pace of development over the next 5 – 10 years. the city could thus make a positive decision to not appeal and allow a local economic boost of nearly $90M over the next three years. conversely, if the city appeals, it will effectively block this much needed economic boon to the community as well as job security for a portion of its Hailey residents. ➢ It is far more logical for the city to: 1) enjoy the significant profit it has already made on its annexation of Cutters; 2) support the health and growth of one of its own city neighborhoods; and 3) allow a significant cash injection into its local economy as a result of cutters developing into the vibrant, green neighborhood the city purported it desired.

Please urge the Mayor and City Council to not appeal by voicing your opinion to them in person, during public comment at a Hailey City Council meeting or at the following e-mail addresses: • • •

Fifth Annual ‘Art on Fourth’ Exhibition Planned, Deadline for Submissions Soon

Hailey artist Tom Teitge, who has painted numerous murals around Hailey, painted a 360-degree mural around the interior of the new Welcome Center.

Hailey Visitor Center Opens

The city of Ketchum is seeking artists interested in showcasing their work for the fifth annual “Art on Fourth” outdoor exhibition. The selected three-dimensional artwork will be featured in the heart of downtown Ketchum, along the Fourth Street Heritage Corridor. Selected artists will receive a $500 stipend, and there is no fee to apply. The deadline for submissions is February 11, 2013. Selected artwork will be featured on the Fourth Street Heritage Corridor, a pedestrian-friendly street with widened sidewalks, benches and designated sites for artwork. The Art on Fourth exhibition has evolved into a significant attraction during the city’s

he murals tell the story of the prospectors, cattlemen, skiers and others who have called Hailey home. And a 1940’s radio shaped like a tombstone offers vignettes of life in old Hailey. Hailey’s new Welcome Center, which will house the Hailey Chamber of Commerce, is the second building in Hailey to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) designation. But this “little red but very green building” also boasts a personal touch. It will be unveiled Thursday evening during an open house. Hailey artist Tom Teitge spent six weeks painting a 100-foot mural 4 feet deep around the top of the walls. The mural features representations of a miner, trapper, skier and cowboy—people who have called the Wood River Valley home. It also features some famous people who have visited, including the Dalai Lama and Marilyn Monroe. “It gives a sense of the different, very diverse people who have been here,” said Teitge. “The Dalai Lama is one of the significant world leaders who has visited here. And I understand that Marilyn Monroe spent a significant amount of time in Hailey when she was here making her film.” Teitge said he wanted something to stimulate viewers’ imaginations. “I got the inspiration for this work sitting around a campfire one night. In a juxtaposition of anachronisms, somehow, Hailey visitors from disparate eras share the same campfire warmth, in the same beautiful place, at the exact instant as you and I.” Audio Innovations installed a computer system in a vintage radio that a Valley resident donated. Visitors will be able sit down in a leather loveseat coupled with a rustic coffee table and listen to 19 one- to two-minute vignettes concerning old Hailey as told by Dorothy Outzs, Fern Stephenson, Ivan Swaner, Ted Uhrig and Ralph Harris. “Fern talks about coming to Hailey in the 1970s and when she came she learned real fast you had to be careful what you said about anybody because somebody was always related to somebody,” said Hailey resident Rob Lonning, who put the “Memory Nook” together with his wife, Elizabeth Jeffrey.

robust summer tourist season. It is organized and curated by the Ketchum Arts Commission whose mission is to incorporate art into the city in multiple ways. The commission is made up of passionate community arts advocates. Artists may submit images of up to three works for consideration. The call for artists, which provides detailed information on the submission process, can be found at www.ketchumidaho. org or by contacting the office of Jen Smith, Director of Parks & Recreation, at or 208726-7820. The call is open to all artists, regardless of their state of residence.

Dorothy Outzs talks about the dogsled races they used to hold on Main Street and walking up the hills in Quigley Canyon and skiing downhill. They were one-strap skis in those days so you couldn’t turn. Ralph talks about doing precision drill riding—they rehearsed to the point the riders didn’t need to tell the horses what to do. And Ivan Swaner talks about when hot water was piped into the natatorium in the old Hiawatha Hotel from the other side of the river. He also tells about a tobacco mogul who came to town and insisted on calling the tennis matches even though he was nearsighted and couldn’t see well enough to make the right calls. It made people shake their heads.” Lonning said the stories were recorded on a microchip so stories about the skatepark and skateboard park, which sits on the site of the visitor center, can be added in the future. The planning committee, comprised of Kristin Poole, Joan Davies, Florence Blanchard, Jenny Davidson and Evelyn Phillips, also wants to install additional exhibits as they raise the funds. “I think the oral histories and the mural will give people a sense of the Wood River Valley and where they are,” he added. The building, designed by Ruscitto, Latham and Blanton, features a mix of contemporary and historic elements similar to old Hailey architecture, said Mariel Platt, Hailey’s sustainability coordinator. Bill Amaya and Troy Passey carved the alder doors. The building is 30 percent more water efficient and 25 percent more energy efficient. It utilizes healthy building materials and recycled materi-

als from the Building Material Thrift Store. And construction workers were able to keep half of the construction waste out of the landfill. “I think it’s a wonderful collaboration between so many people in the community,” said Lisa Horton, who works for the Environmental Resource Center. “It’s wonderful to see how many people pulled together.”

Did you know? The new Welcome Center sits on the site of what used to be a horse racing track in the early 1900s. Townspeople played baseball inside the oval every July Fourth. Hailey businessman Leopold Wertheimer, who owned a men’s clothing store in what is now Luke’s Family Pharmacy at the corner of Bullion and Main streets, bequeathed a thousand dollars upon his death in 1913 to the city to clean up the track and reseed the oval. For that, the City of Hailey is contemplating naming the Hailey rodeo grounds after Wertheimer.

Open House thursday Check out the Hailey Welcome Center at an open house from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday at 781 S. Main St. just south of the rodeo arena. A LEED discussion and tour will start at 5 p.m. The open house itself starts at 5:30 p.m. Those in attendance will include Hailey Mayor Fritz Haemmerle and Charlie Woodruff, executive director of the Idaho chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council. Light refreshments will be served. tws

@7D$',"(&'( Why Wax? By Jim Santa


hether it be alpine or nordic skis, wax is important to the preservation and performance of our snow sliding toys. Frequent wax application not only allows our skis to glide and turn easier. Wax also helps to protect our ski base much like staining our deck would protect the wood from drying out. The following information can be applied to both nordic and alpine skis. Most ski bases are made of P-Tex, an industrial thermoplastic with impressive qualities for a sliding surface; very low friction and high abrasion resistance. P-Tex is made by pressing together small particles of polyethylene and various additives under high pressure and heat, a process called sintering. This creates a material that will absorb wax when applied with adequate heat. Physically, wax alters the hardness of the base surface. This allows you to tune the base for the kind of snow crystals your ski will encounter. Chemically, wax adjusts the water repellency and also lubricates the ski base. Okay, so here’s where it begins to sound technical. While it can be taken to a high technical level to optimize performance and glide for racing, for most recreational skiers it’s simply not necessary to go this deep. It can be as basic as applying just a couple of different waxes, one for warmer and another for colder conditions. Of course most ski shops specialize in the tuning and waxing of skis and this is typically an overnight service. It is also possible with a bit of an investment in tools and some proper training to set up a shop at home to do it yourself. Again, most good shops will be happy to set you up with the proper tools and some instruction to get you started. Local shops often put on clinics during the season to help you learn to wax and tune. While it may not be a great cost savings to do it yourself, many of us really enjoy working on our own gear, it’s fun and rewarding to ski on our own product. I am often asked how often do we wax or tune? While it depends a bit on snow conditions, it’s generally every couple of ski sessions for me. A little bit of maintenance more frequently outweighs a major overhaul and keeps your gear consistently performing at a higher level. So keep your skis waxed and enjoy your skiing more!

he last place you would expect to hear a band influenced by Mexican son music would be Boston, Massachusetts, but that’s exactly where David Wax Museum calls home. David Wax Museum blends traditional Mexican folk with Americana roots music that brings bands like Los Lobos, Calexico and Y La Bamba to mind without actually sounding like any of them. Their new album Knock Knock Get Up mixes in acoustic indie rock with a Latin flavor without going to the extreme in either direction. In other words, David Wax Museum sounds like nothing else out there right now. David Wax and Suz

Slezak, the core of the band, use traditional Mexican instruments like the jarana (an eight-string instrument similar to the guitar), the leona (a four-string low-keyed guitar-like instrument), accordion, mariachi horns and other nontraditional rock instruments and fuse the sound with traditional rock instrumentation and call-andresponse vocals to get the David Wax Museum sound. “Refuge” is like walking by the open door of a cantina and getting pulled into the party. “Leopard Girl” is an infectious song with sing-along vocals and foot-stomping rhythms which will get anyone’s toe tapping. “Will You Be Sleeping?” could easily have been written by Portland, Ore., singer-songwriter M. Ward, but as soon as the horns kick in, it

sounds like a David Wax Museum original. Knock Knock Get Up is pure, unadulterated fun and you can experience them live February 8th at the Sun Valley Opera House. Be sure not to miss this tws one.

The Rise of the Spaghetti Western


ne thing about director/screenwriter Quentin Tarantino is that you either love him or hate him, and if you love him, you have to see his newest genre-busting effort, Django Unchained. Far superior to his last film, Inglourious Basterds, Unchained, despite its almost threehours length, will have you on the edge of your seat and, at times, laughing out loud. Of course, there is the horrific violence that will repulse many, but if you know the man’s work, what do you expect? Instead of Nazi Germany, this revenge saga is set in the pre-Civil War slaveholding South and many of the print critics have written reviews that sound like grad school theses on the subtexts of the film and race in America. Spike Lee, despite not seeing the film, has weighed in on his disgust, especially the proficient use of the N-word. Either way, the story stays close to the spaghetti Western in terms of vengeance being king in a classic story of good versus evil. Only here it’s a black man seeking revenge, played beautifully by Jamie Foxx, and the true brotherhood he finds

movie review



Jon rated this movie

with a German bounty hunter, Christoph Waltz, who literally steals the picture. After Foxx assists him in the capture of his former slave owners, the duo strike out to find Foxx’s wife, who is now the property of Leonardo DiCaprio, in a terrific turn as the owner of a huge plantation. There they will find Samuel L. Jackson, in the film’s most controversial role, as the archetypal Uncle Tom house servant who hates his fellow slaves more than his master. Best of all are the film’s cinematic flourishes and re-invention of the B movie, from quick pans to slow-motion photography. Also evident is the terrific soundtrack that serves the movie so well. Is there anyone in film that uses music better than Tarantino? So grab some popcorn and settle in for a terrific ride, because Django Unchained really delivers. tws

he subzero temperatures outside didn’t stop hundreds of parents from gathering together inside Carey School’s gymnasium with students, faculty and staff for Leadership Night on Monday. A pop-up art gallery of Carey students’ artwork welcomed attendees inside the gym. The evening was dedicated to grades K-6. The presentation began with a video in which students talked about their New Year’s resolutions. Then, each class took turn getting on the stage to show how The Leader in Me program had helped them both in school and at home. The audience was entertained with everything from short skits to students talking about how the program had personally helped them, in both school and home. The program incorporates Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and provides a unique learning environment for the students. It teaches habits such as “Be Proactive” and “Begin With the End in Mind,” which encourage the students to think about responsibility, leadership and the future. The program is an umbrella that puts both students and staff on the same page. The Leader in Me is now being implemented in over 1,000 schools around the globe. tws

Habits For Success BY JONATHAN KANE


arey High School senior Glen Andrews adheres to habits that will lead to success. In school he works with elementary students on developing those habits based on the book “The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People” by Stephen Covey. “We try to do activities that will help kids to become leaders,” Andrews said. “We pick one habit and try to show the students the importance of it and how it can affect their own lives. For example, something like ‘first things first.’ We teach the synergy of working together like a team rather than a person saying that ‘I’m going to work on my own thing.’ At the high school we work on our homework assignments together at first because it’s much easier to grasp a concept as a group than on your own.” Andrews has applied those habits to garnering a 3.8 grade point average and by being elected student body president. Having been born in Hailey, Andrews has lived his entire live in Carey. “It’s a really small town—about 500 people—but there’s nowhere else I’d rather have grown up in. I feel lucky to be here. For sports, we’re in the smallest division in the state and there are 20 kids in the senior class. We’ve all known each other our whole lives. It’s the only thing I’ve ever known, so it’s pretty cool. We still have groups that we hang out with but it’s nice that we know each other so well. In the high school we have about 80 students and about 25 teachers and librarians and they cover a lot of subjects. What I like the most is that they try really hard not to make it just read the texts and do the homework. They teach us how to use the knowledge in real life and they really interact with the students.” Last year Andrews took Advanced Placement physics and this year chemistry and calculus. “I really like science and math because it’s easy for me. I feel that I’m weak in English and just not that into it as much. I love chemistry and seeing how different chemicals interact with each other. Also, when you say a chemical name, everyone’s really impressed,” he says with a laugh. “I like to see how things react with each other and science shows that everything is related and helps explain everyday life. It just seems more real to me than other subjects.” Andrews’ future plans are to attend the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls and then hopefully study petroleum engineering, which he describes as “finding ways to

HUMMINGBIRD FLITS INTO HALL OF FAME, from page 1 Kiesel designed and welded track sleds to set Nordic ski tracks with the antiquated snowmobiles of yesteryear. Then he decided to start a new race by grooming from Galena Lodge to the Sawtooth National Recreation Area headquarters. His Boulder Mountain Tour, one of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first distance races for cross-country skiers, was inspired by a story about how former Sun Valley Lodge manager Louis Stur had skied medicine to a woman at Galena Lodge when snow had closed the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We figured weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go along the berm of the highway,â&#x20AC;? Rosso recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to take our skis off at streamsâ&#x20AC;Ś had to cross the highway a few times. Today, of course, the race attracts up to a thousand racers. And this year itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the National Masters Championship.â&#x20AC;? Rosso was among those who helped lay out many of the trails that now comprise the North Valley Trails system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back then forest rangers Ken Britton and Butch Harper were very proactive users. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go out and ski or walk through the woods and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d wave their hands around and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cut these trees down.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Things got done. Things got built. They were trained foresters who made good decisions. They never did anything that harmed the land,â&#x20AC;? Rosso said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now the bureaucracy is so layered itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to get things done and it costs so much. We still have things in the works, such as the proposed Galena bike trails, but it takes a lot longer than it used to.â&#x20AC;? A longtime member of the Galena Advisory Board, Rosso was also among those who championed turning the old railroad bed into a bike path and groomed cross-country ski path in winter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That kind of stuff was ahead of its time. People who lived along the proposed path were afraid the users would rob their houses. Now, if they put their

Busdon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His command of a microphone is unique and many think he missed his callingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that he should have been on the radio with that deep voice of his! Frankly, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we would do without Bob at events like the Boulder Tour where he is such an expert on the mic.

This popular 10-kilometer skate ski race organized by the Sun Valley Ski Club and sponsored by Backwoods Mountain Sports will be held at Billyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bridge, about 17 miles north of Ketchum. Registration will be between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. the morning of the race with the race starting at 11 a.m. Entry fee is $10 with kids 18 years and under free. Backwoods has donated several prizes, including $100 and $50 gift certificates and goodies for raffle prizes.

Hammer Nutrition and Perryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have donated refreshments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, due to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;snowpocalypseâ&#x20AC;? in the two days before the race, only 33 diehards turned up to ski the race in very soft conditions,â&#x20AC;? said coorganizer Jenny Busdon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, this year conditions are exceptional and we expect a great turnout due to it being two weeks before the Boulder Tour. In years past we have had close to 100 racers come to ski this popular skate race.â&#x20AC;? For further information contact Jenny Busdon at 726-1649 or Ted Angle at 788-9458.

A Dish With Mediterranean Flare BY MARGOT VAN HORN


ne of our markets had a very good special going on packages of various chicken parts; so I loaded up. Shortly after, I heard a bit of Greek music on the radio and this wonderful recipe came to mind. I had to make it right away. Avgolemono, or egg-lemon sauce, may originally be a Sephardic Jewish dish. It is a sauce used often in the Mediterranean. You may have experienced it even as a soup. I do enjoy the unique taste of it, and in this chicken recipe, I think that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent. I serve it with white rice and a good veggie dish or a nice salad. I hope that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy it as well.

Chicken with Avgolemono Sauce Avgolemono sauce comes from Greece and is made with lemon juice and egg yolks, Serves 4

Ingredients: 8 chicken thighs (or chicken pieces of your choice in an amount to match up to 8 thighs if you wish to serve 4) 1 tsp. safflower or olive oil 1 small onion, minced 6 mushrooms, minced (I used my frozen mushrooms duxelles from my freezerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;recipe given in a previous issue) 1 celery stalk, chopped 3 C. chicken broth salt and pepper to taste 1 bay leaf Paprika to sprinkle on the

dish at the end

For the sauce: 2 Tbsp. water 2 tsp. cornstarch 2 egg yolks 1/4 C. lemon juice

Directions: I actually used a wok-like pan for this dish but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure another larger, deep pot would work as well. Place wok over medium heat; add oil. When hot, add onion, mushrooms and celery; stir-fry until crisp-tender. Add broth; bring to a simmer and add chicken parts, salt and pepper, and bay leaf; simmer uncovered until chicken is doneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;depending on the parts

a recipeâ&#x20AC;Śfrom my table to yours BY ANDREA VANDERWOUDE


chose this recipe because it has a lot of fresh ingredientsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and one of my newly discovered favorites, quinoa. Quinoa is a grain that contains a high amount of protein, as well as other important nutrients such as dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and calcium. This recipe can be used as a dip for a get-together with appetizers, or just as a nice salad, or an on-the-go lunchâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;very versatile and very tasty. What I love most about it is the fresh taste with the benefits of numerous vegetables and fruits to fight off colds and flus that come around this time of year. I got interested in cooking when I was very young. That

was something my mom always loved to do and I was her â&#x20AC;&#x153;big helpe.â&#x20AC;? My first cooking experience was when I was a little girl and I wanted to make cookies for my family. I did everything right except I forgot the rising agent, and the cookies looked like soup. I threw them all away (so embarrassed!), but my mother found out and encouraged me to keep trying. Because of my positive experiences growing up and the encouragement I got from my mom, I have pursued my love of cooking and incorporated nutrition in my academic studies, hoping to complete my degree in Dietetics this May after my internship at St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wood River. I moved here last Saturday (1/5/13) from Parma, Idaho,

and have felt right at home in the community. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have asked for a better place to be! I love the availability of things to do here, especially the outdoors and being active. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be on the mountain snowboarding all day, or skiing, you can snowshoe, or go to one of the local restaurants. There are great churches, and the YMCA is a great place to catch a workout when the weather is -2 degreesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not to mention the great hot springs I am sure to check out. If nothing else, I would have to say the people are great. I love being active, I love nutrition, and I love making food and seeing the joy it gives others.

Superfood Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette by Andrea Vanderwoude Optional: 10-12 frozen or fresh shrimp, thawed, peeled, and deveined (or 1 chicken breast) For the Lemon Vinaigrette: 2 lemons, juiced (need 1/4 C. juice) 2 garlic cloves, microplaned or finely minced dash of sweetener (agave nectar, stevia or white sugar) salt and pepper 6 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Cook quinoa according to package directions (or cook in saucepan with 1 ½ C. water and salt to taste). Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer until water evaporates and quinoa is soft â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about 30 minutes). Set aside to cool. Optional: sautĂŠ shrimp (or chicken) in pan with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Set aside. For the Lemon Vinaigrette: combine all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake to combine.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, After years of having a boss who didn't like me, I finally had enough. I answered a couple of ads I found in the classified section and jumped to another job. It was great. The new boss and I hit it off immediately. He appreciated the solutions I offered to problems around the office and always gave me a compliment when the job was accomplished. However, it was too good to last. I've been here just four months and my boss has moved on to a new position. Now I'm back in the same situation I was before. I swear my new boss doesn't like me. Since I'm still new here, I was thinking of jumping to another job with a better boss again. My co-workers think I'm nuts and say I should wait it out. What do you think I should do?

• • • Cash: Your co-workers do have a point. Although you may not be nuts, you might want to hold off on looking for another job. Carry: Your career sounds more like high school than a profession. Back then if you didn't like the teacher, you just dropped the class. At some point though,

Fast Facts Bad Boss Blues

you have to learn to deal with people whether they like you or not. Cash: For starters, you should ask yourself if you like your job. Do you enjoy the work you do, is the salary adequate, or do you like the company as a whole? Carry: If the answers are "yes", then it pays to figure out how to work with your new boss. Within any company there are going to be personality conflicts. It's always beneficial to learn to work with all types of people whether it's at this job or another. Cash: Plus, if you move to another company, the same situation could happen again. You've

already found yourself in this position twice. Carry: Although it's easiest to blame you boss for the conflict, you should also look at your own behavior to see if there are any ways you can change. It's unlikely you will get your boss to alter his behavior, but by approaching situations differently, you may end up with a better result. And in the end, you and your boss might work together very well. Cash: And even if things don't work out perfectly, there's no need to worry. Maybe you'll get a new boss in a few months. Or better yet, you could apply for his job!

Lets face it, some bosses are good and some bosses are bad. A survey from Florida State University is shedding light on the effectiveness of management. According to those surveyed, nearly two out of five bosses failed to keep promises to their employees. Some 27% said their boss made negative comments about them to other employees or managers. Another 24% noted their boss invaded their privacy, and 23% responded that their boss blamed others to cover up mistakes or to minimize embarrassment.

Give Me a Break

Are you making the grade as a boss? According to a recent survey, bad bosses are on the rise by as much as 50%. As often happens in management, individuals are promoted because they excelled in a given job, but may not have the skills to be an effective leader. When this occurs, employee-boss tension can be destructive. Of the workers polled who had a bad boss, 59% stayed at their job dealing with or suffering through their boss's actions. Unfortunately, 38% ended up quitting and moving to another job. •

Reader Humor Barely Managing

It wasn't that long ago that I was hired as the General Manager of a company with over 300 employees. On my second day, the fire marshal stopped by for a surprise inspection of our fire prevention systems. Since I was rather new, I had the production supervisor tag along to answer questions. After checking the sprinkler systems, emergency exits and fire extinguishers, the marshal gave us a passing report. As we walked him out, he asked if we had an evacuation plan in case of an emergency. My production supervisor quickly jumped in and said we did. "And how often is it practiced?" asked the marshal. Jokingly the supervisor replied, "Everyday at 5 o'clock!" (Thanks to Jason K.)

510 thank you notes A huge thank you to BCRD for the beautifully groomed skiing trails through Bellevue. I would like to apologize for the few folks who walk on, drive over or store their snow removal on the path in spite of your efforts, either out of ignorance or disregard. We appreciate all your hard work! To Caitlin’s grandmother (from Hailey), Thank you SO MUCH! Your gift of the hand warmers as we stood waiting for Sun Valley’s Christmas Eve Ice Show to begin was fingersaving. Your considerable kindness is inspiring and very much appreciated. Thank you. Thanks to the verrry helpful and courteous bellmen (Todd and Frank) who really went the extra mile during New Year’s week for my cousins and my aunt there at the SV Resort -- as did Wink and her supervisor, Pamela, at the Resort’s gift shop. All four of you were extremely helpful and wonderful to them–thanks!! Show your appreciation! Say thanks with a FREE 20-word thank you note, right here. e-mail your ad to

Chapter One Bookstore Featured in Travel and Leisure

The accolades keep rolling in for Chapter One Bookstore, as this little independent bookstore in the heart of Ketchum has recently been featured as one of “America’s Best Bookstores” by Travel + Leisure magazine online. It has been profiled along with 16 other independent bookstores throughout the U.S. and is noted for its “cozy” atmosphere and “large collection of rare and out-of-print Hemingway books.” In October 2012, Chapter One Bookstore in Ketchum was chosen as one of the 5 Great Indie Bookstores in the Pacific Northwest by Seattle Met-

ro magazine, and has also received national exposure by being featured in the recently published book, My Bookstore: Writers Celebrate Their Favorite Places to Browse, Read, and Shop. Local Charles Brandt, author of “I Heard You Paint Houses” and “We’re Going to Win This Thing,” was one of the 84 nationally published authors to highlight their favorite bookstore and Chapter One was the recipient of his praise. “We are so honored and grateful to receive this kind of recognition and exposure,” remarked long-time Chapter

One Bookstore owner Cheryl Thomas. “It’s good for us and also good for our community. Independent bookstores are so important and we strive to provide a unique selection of books and exceptional customer service in a cozy, welcoming atmosphere.” Chapter One is a unique, independent bookstore that has been a local and visitor favorite for over 40 years in Ketchum/Sun Valley. The bookstore recently moved to a new location at 340 E. 2nd Street in downtown Ketchum.

Sun Valley’s Trail Creek Golf Course Gets Nod from Golf Digest The Trail Creek golf course at historic Sun Valley Resort has been named to Golf Digest’s “Best in State” biennial listings, capturing one of 10 top spots for private, resort and public courses throughout Idaho. The listing appears in the February 2013 edition of the international leading golf publication. The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. layout ranked ninth among an elite list, and was only one of four public courses officially ranked. The 6,968-yard, par-72 course will

open its 2013 golf season in late April or early May. Features include the breathtaking seventh hole, with an elevated tee box offering picture-perfect views and a forced carry over the babbling Trail Creek, and the 17th hole, the longest and toughest par 3 on the course. Visit or call or call 800-786-8259 for information on tee times and events throughout the 2013 golf season.
