student spotlight



n Jan. 19, thirteen students from 5th to 12th grade competed in the Ruy Lopez Tournament. The Ruy Lopez is a chess opening that white plays against black and dates back to 1490, but was popularized by Ruy Lopez, a monk, in 1561. Chess Grandmasters use this opening regularly, today.  The students certainly became familiarized with all the possibilities that the Ruy Lopez offers while playing in a five-round tournament in 10-minute blitz games.  Blitz games are fast-paced chess games that produce wild positions and include radical combinations.  Four players scored 4.0 points: Adam Porth, Taylor Walton, Miles Hendrix and Nick Bruck.  Tie-breakers produced Adam Porth in first place and Taylor Walton in second place to win the trophies. The next local tournament, the Elementary School Championship, is planned for K-5th graders as a senior project for Nick Bruck on Feb. 12.  This will also include team competition to name the top chess-playing elementary school in the Wood River Valley. Chess Club is open to everyone and meets at Wood River High School after school from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays in room C214.  Please call to get more information:  450-9048 or 578-5020, ext. 2239. twp

and people are very happy. I was so lucky to wind up there. I could have ended up in Somalia or Togo, which are very violent places. I really loved it there and wish more of my peers could experience it. I just learned so much and I was only sixteen.” Brenna’s senior project was able to incorporate her love for Africa and her love and passion for dance, which she has been doing since she ws three years old at Sun Valley Ballet. “It was called Parents’ Night Off and was a slumber party for twentyfive girls at the dance studio. We took donations and registration fees to raise money for the orphanage. We had an awesome time and I choreographed an African dance for the girls to perform for the parents the following morning when they picked everyone up. The event raised $800, which is a fortune in Ghana. It will go to diapers, formula and medications. I just put the check in the mail and it was so exciting. I put so much work into the project and it was so amazing to pull it off. I also got to teach young girls that had never heard of an orphanage what is going happening on the other side of the world.” twp

Hailey Elementary School Science Fair The Hailey Elementary School Science Fair, sponsored by the PTA, will be held on Thursday, Jan. 27, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the HES gymnasium. The public is invited to attend. Students will be on hand to answer questions about their projects during the early part of the evening. Organizers anticipate a room full of elaborate displays and exciting experiments from students age kindergarten through fifth grade, and they are compiling a list of participating students to be given out at the door to ensure that guests from the community can easily find projects entered by kids they know. Of course, there may be late entries and those projects will be heartily welcomed by the PTA. Although projects are not going to be judged this year, all students who display a project will receive an award

for participating. New to the science fair this year will be “students’ choice” awards, which will be given out to the most striking project in each grade level. Students will vote for their favorite project during the public viewing on Thursday or on Friday, when their homeroom classes have additional time to tour the exhibits. Kathy Baker, PTA Board member said she believes the number of entries in the science fair this year is in part due to the enthusiasm for science that was nurtured at Family Science Night, held at HES earlier this month. “Family Science Night was designed to feed into the science fair and that’s what we see happening. We’re glad so many kids are thinking more about science now and they’re interested in doing their own science research at home.”

Trout Unlimited February Meeting Located in southeastern British Columbia, the Elk River and its tributaries are home to a wild and native population of Westslope cutthroat and bull trout. The river is renowned for its dry-fly fishing for big, wild, native Westslope cutthroat trout, along with the chance of catching a very large bull trout. One can explore and fish the other creeks on their own as well as hire a guide to float the Elk. The idea of this presentation is to encourage you to get out and explore on your own. British Columbia is big— there’s so much to see and discover. So pack up your rig and check it out!

Our featured speaker will be Carmen Northern, professional photographer for over 25 years, and Trout Unlimited volunteer, past state council chair for Idaho TU, currently on the national leadership council for TU, and a current board of director’s member of our Hemingway Chapter. She’s also currently a fishing guide for Silver Creek Outfitters. For more information, call 6224613.

Film Fest Tuesday By KAREN BOSSICK


ave a look at a “Whitebark Warrior� and a ski adventure along a “Desert River,� which will be among three films shown at the Winter Wildlands Alliance Backcountry Film Festival at The Liberty Theatre Tuesday night. Winter Wildlands Alliance is partnering with Idaho Conservation League’s Ketchum office to showcase the films during the Second Annual Sun Valley Nordic Festival, a nine-day event that begins on Saturday. “We thought it would be fun to have something in Hailey during the festival,� said Brett Stevenson of the ICL. The first film will be Best of Festival Teton Gravity Research’s “Deeper,� which follows snowboarder Jeremy Jones and other riders as they venture deep into untouched terrain without the aid of helicopters, snowmobiles or lifts. The second is “Desert River,� featuring a ski adventure in Alaska filmed by Sweetgrass Productions. The last is “Whitebark Warrior,� which chronicles the decline of thousand-year-old whitebark pines due to climate change and the efforts that are underway to save the iconic high alpine trees. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the films begin at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 and there will be a raffle and Big Sky beer, with proceeds going to Winter Wildlands Alliance’s efforts to preserve and conserve winter landscapes for quiet uses. The festival, which premiered in Boise, is traveling to more than 30 communities in the United States from Alaska to twp New Hampshire.

he new Jim Carrey-starring vehicle I Love You, Phillip Morris is a tough flick to describe. Ostensibly the true story of a maniacal con man, it’s hard to pin down whether it’s a comedy, a farce or an over-the-top gay love story. Perhaps it’s all three, but somewhere the film falls short and manages to never really find its footing. It’s also tough to figure out just who the target audience is for this film.

movie review

This week’s Horoscopes: Retrograde Saturn deals pop quizzes Saturn goes retrograde in Libra on Wednesday, Jan. 26. The planet of life lessons will deal pop quizzes in the area of relationships. Those closest to us will find new ways of pushing our buttons, and we may do the same without even realizing it. If conflict arises out of this irritation, at least it won’t be the same old argument. And the new conclusions that come out of it will make relationships closer in the future. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will have a situation in which you’re not sure whether or not you really need help. Reach out anyway. Everyone will be better off for it. You have friends who will accommodate you at the drop of a hat. You do not usually call on them to do this, and that is one of the reasons why they are eager to help whenever you ask. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To attach the appropriate significance to events is a skill. Leave your ego out of the decision and you’ll do great. For instance, if you don’t make the sale, it doesn’t mean you’re no good at sales. It just means it didn’t go your way this time. Shrug it off and try again. A wonderful reward comes Wednesday evening. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stick with the schedule and with habits that have been working for you. If you forgo your usual routine, you can still show up on time where you need to be, but you’ll be less awake and aware of what’s going on around you. In order to be at your best this week, you’ll need to pay extra attention to your mental and physical states.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It will be difficult to get the attention, let alone the affection, of overly pressured and busy people. Their minds are crammed full, and there isn’t sufficient room in there for you. You will capture the imagination of someone whose life has enough leisure and ease to allow for a strong focus on you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be playing a big game this week. When you feel overwhelmed by the pressures of a situation, bring yourself back. Notice more details of your environment than you normally would. Get present and connect with people. You can’t influence anyone if you’re not completely in the room. Stay in the game. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you know some people who are lucky when it comes to money, you usually have to make your own financial luck through long hours and sweat. This week is different. There will be a turn of events that makes you feel undeniably fortunate. Make the most of the bonus. It’s about time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You try to live your life in accordance with certain axioms, but some aren’t making as much sense to you now as they once did. You could change the rules this week or give them a twist. For instance, instead of treating others how you want to be treated, treat them how they want to be treated. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are a student of human nature, and your studies will teach you something interesting this week. People typically care more about how you treat yourself than about how you treat them. You’ll take excellent care of yourself this week, and you will gain respect and love in the process. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You would consider it foolish to criticize or take a jab at the boss. However, when

it’s your turn to be in charge, you may learn that others don’t share your values and wisdom. You may catch heat from an underling. Nip it in the bud. Don’t feed the hand that bites you! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This is no time to be meek, modest and small. If you are somewhat deserving and mostly qualified to have the thing you want, ask for it. If you don’t get it, demand it. There is a high probability it will work. And if it doesn’t, at least you’ll gain self-respect, and next time it will be easier for you to ask. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are not naturally inclined to boast or draw too much attention to yourself. However, if you’re going to get anywhere with your project this week, you will need to talk about what you’ve done. Practice and experiment until you find the perfect words and tone to frame your outstanding accomplishments. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your personal rituals will grease the wheels of production. Because this week is filled with distractions and fast changes, you could opt out of certain parts of your routine. Letting too many of your good habits slide at once will knock you off balance. Stick with the behaviors that have helped you get this far. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You’ll celebrate with those who have known you for ages and who grow even more enamored with you each year. You’ll hear words to cherish for a lifetime in February. You will be promoted because of your diplomatic dealings at work in March. There’s a financial breakthrough in June, and you will have the funding to do something you’ve always wanted to do. Be someone’s hero in April by just being yourself. The romantic getaway you take in August will turn into a time-honored twp tradition.

briefs Storytelling, collage

Create a unique art piece that means something special to you in a mixed-media workshop offered by the Sun Valley Center for the Arts on February 10 and 11.

Topics to be discussed include selection of materials, choice of adhesives and creative ways to attach found objects. The class will include demonstrations and lots of hands-on time and personal attention. Storytelling through Collage will meet at The Center’s Hailey classroom on Thursday and Friday, Feb. 10-11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The fee is $150 for Sun Valley Center for the Arts members and $200 for nonmembers. To register, visit, stop by The Center in Ketchum or call 208-726-9491, ext 10.

Does snuggling save energy?


es! From a biological perspective, we actually call this huddling. There are several key factors affecting how quickly animals, including humans, lose energy to the air. One is our boundary layer— the thickness and texture of our fur, feathers—or down coat. Another key is the gradient between your internal temperature and the surrounding air temperature. If you are a chickadee and your internal temperature is 105°F. and the air temperature is -20°F., you are on the equivalent of a black diamond ski slope; on this steep gradient, energy exits quickly. The reason huddling works is that it addresses the last key variable—surface area. The more surface area you have exposed to the air, the more

area giving up energy to the air. Picture an orange: w—hen it is intact, the surface of the peel is the only exposed surface area. Imagine cutting the orange in half, however, and you expose a brand-new surface to the air, in addition to the previous area of the peel. When you huddle, you minimize your surface area by, in effect, bringing back together the halves of the orange. Many small mammals rely upon huddling to survive the winter. The scientific evidence is there. So, make like a mouse, grab your favorite friend, and snuggle up! Your checkbook will thank you when the next energy bill arrives.

AS SEEN ON COVER: Music Director Alasdair Neale will be taking most of the bows again this summer when America’s largest free symphony concert starts up in late July. Photo: Karen bossick/twp

Music Director Alasdair Neale said this year’s lineup spotlights the orchestra’s national “all-star” team of musicians from across the country and beyond. “Beethoven’s “Pastoral” Symphony will be performed for the first time in Sun Valley and Mahler’s First and Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony make welcome return appearances,” he said. “In all three works audiences will have a chance to reflect on the extraordinary wealth of musical talent that descends on the Wood River Valley each summer.” The highlights: Monday, Aug. 1—Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor. Thursday, Aug. 4—Concert-

master Jeremy Constant and Principal Cello Amos Yang will perform Brahms’ Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra. Sunday, Aug. 7—Pianist Yefim Bronfman (no relation to Chamber music sponsor Edgar Bronfman) performs Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Minor. Thursday, Aug. 11—Quartetto Gelato, an eclectic Canadian gypsy-like group, will join forces with the symphony for its second annual “On the Lighter Side” concert. Friday, Aug. 12—Vadim Gluzman, who performed Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with the Sun Valley Summer Symphony in 2009, will perform Erich Korngold’s Violin Concerto. twp

After several months and many candidates, Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties tapped the Colorado marketing firm of Social Image Media Group to run its regional and local marketing efforts. “I am very excited for our company, our agents, and our clients to have the marketing expertise of Angie and her company working for us,” said Todd Conklin, CEO. “With firms in Colorado and Idaho vying for the job, the competition was strong, but Social Image Media Group earned it.” Social Image Media Group and its owner Angie Robinson specialize in integrating traditional and social media marketing platforms to maximize exposure. This “new media marketing,” as Robinson calls it, is far more effective than typical marketing strategies currently used by many real estate firms and accomplishes a more comprehensive worldwide exposure. Robinson and her company will be packaging the Coldwell Banker Brand to best serve the Coldwell Banker Distinctive Properties agents, brokerage and rental clients, maximizing its resort market presence.

C’mon, snow!

By Patrick Buchanan State Farm Agent


here are many ways for you to build a retirement nest egg. One of the more popular is the traditional Individual Retirement Account, or IRA. Tax deferral is one of the reasons for its popularity. Contributions to a traditional IRA may be deductible from your income, lowering the federal income tax for which you are responsible. Federal income tax on your IRA will be deferred until you begin taking withdrawals, usually when you have retired and may be in a lower tax bracket. Generally, you can qualify for a tax deduction if you are not an active participant in an employer-sponsored retirement plan. For 2011, if you are an active participant in a retirement plan, your deduction for contributions to a traditional IRA will be reduced (and then phased out) if your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI) is: Up to $89,000 for a full deduction; $89,000-$109,000 for a partial deduction for a married

couple filing a joint return or a qualifying widow(er). Up to $56,000 for a full deduction; partial deduction $56,000$66,000 for a single individual or head of household; or Less than $10,000 for a married individual filing a separate return. You must begin taking minimum annual withdrawals from your traditional IRA by April 1 of the year after the year you reach age 70 1/2. Taxable withdrawals will be subject to ordinary income tax rates. There are a number of options available to you when you open an IRA. Various investments may be used depending on factors such as your time horizon, risk tolerance, and other financial goals. Talk to a qualified financial professional to find out how you can take advantage of the tax benefits of a traditional twp IRA.

Life requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.

Ask the Guys Dear Classified Guys, My wife and I are about to move and sell our house. But before we do, we wanted to give the walls a fresh coat of paint to make the inside of the house look new to prospective buyers. The problem is that my wife and I disagree on colors. I'm of the mind-set that everything should be painted white. It matches everything! However, my wife thinks that white is for hospitals. She's been watching all the home improvement shows and wants to use some fancy colors. Any ideas on what would look the best to prospective buyers?

• • •

Cash: If there's one thing

we've learned over the years, it's to never get involved in a disagreement between a husband and wife. Unless, of course, you plan on siding with the woman! Carry: Before you decide on which colors to choose, take a look to see if your house really needs painting. Although a fresh coat of paint can make the worst walls look like new, you may only need to give them a quick washing. Cash: Painting rooms like the kitchen or bathroom can take a lot of effort. It may be to your benefit

to focus on areas of the house that have seen a lot of wear and tear like the hallways or living room. Carry: Other rooms may just need a quick touch up on trim or doorways to give them a newer look. Cash: As for colors, the choices are very subjective. Walk into any paint store today and you'll find an unlimited amount of colors. Carry: And choosing white will not be easier. Just wait until you see how many shades of white are available. Cash: Before you pick out a new color, whether its white or something "fancy", decide if the existing room color is acceptable. It may be

easier to use the same color and avoid multiple coats to cover the old color. Carry: If you plan on showing the house while you still live there, then choose colors that go with your current décor. There's no benefit in using accent colors that clash with your furniture. Cash: Since you do plan on moving, it may not be the time to get creative. Many buyers tend to have their own style in mind. It's possible to give your house a good presentation with almost any color. Carry: Besides, the less painting you have to do, the more time your wife will have to watch home improvement shows.

The old saying goes, "If it doesn't move, paint it." It seems more of us are following that advice everyday. Consumers are buying paint by the gallons! In fact, the National Paint and Coverings Association estimates Americans spend more than 6 billion dollars per year on paint for architecture such as houses and walls. With that much paint, everyone could use a few more friends to help.

Get the Lead Out

Although the hottest selling colors keep changing, paint has been around for centuries. The Romans created it using a lead base and added ingredients like wine or vinegar. Later discoveries used a white lead paste and added ingredients like linseed oil, turpentine or colored pigments. Today all those types of paint are banned due to the toxic ingredients. In fact, paints sold in the US must contain less than 0.6% lead by volume, which means you can add that second coat without worrying. •

Reader Humor Finishing Touches

When I took on the project of renovating a few rooms in our house, I quickly realized it was a big job. I spent an entire month of evenings and weekends installing new hardwood floors to make sure they were just right. But when it came to painting, I decided to hire a high school neighbor to help me out. On the morning he showed up, I told him to go paint the entire bedroom and I'll work on the living room. About an hour later, he came back and told me he was all done. "That's great," I said. "Let me go check it out." To my dismay he replied, "Just be careful. The floor paint is still wet!"

Helping you make your own decisions Naturopath Jody Stanislaw By KAREN BOSSICK


hink house calls are a thing of the past? Think again. Jody Stanislaw makes house calls—in the name of keeping you healthy so you don’t need a doctor. And she designs individual and group retreats, as well. Stanislaw, a naturopathic physician, is the founder of Sun Valley F.I.T. (Focused Individual. Transformation). She meets clients where they’re at, devising tailor-made programs to cure what ails them. And she custom-designs private health retreats as well—for everything from a ladies’ weekend getaway to a husband-wife retreat. Stanislaw was just seven when she decided to become a doctor—that’s when she developed diabetes, which plunged her headlong into the world of needle testing and waiting rooms.


When it came time to pursue her own stethoscope, she decided to become a naturopathic doctor. It required all the requisite biochemistry, organic chemistry and physiology courses she would have taken pursuing traditional medicine, she says. But it gave her greater flexibility to help the body heal naturally with herbal medicine, exercise, nutrition and counseling, rather than suppressing symptoms with a pain pill. “I don’t want to be a doctor who tells you what to do. I want to be a doctor who does it with you,” she said. “I love to teach to empower people.” After getting her doctorate degree at Bastyr University, an acclaimed holistic medical school in Seattle, Stanislaw went to Thailand. There she worked at a five-star health spa that catered to wealthy clients from the Middle East, Japan, China and Australia who were willing to pay $1,000 a day to have someone dictate to them how to exercise, relax and eat from a menu that included such dishes as prawn salad and stir-fried

lamb chops with oyster sauce. “I fell in love with seeing how people felt after a few days away from stress and phone calls,” she recounted. “One man owned a hotel in Egypt where he worked 15-hour days, seven days a week, and he thought he was going to collapse. We fed him fresh vegetables and insisted that he exercise. He came for three days and stayed for two weeks, leaving so full of energy. He said he never realized he could feel so good.” Stanislaw returned to the

United States determined to offer others the same. And she decided the perfect place would be Sun Valley, a place where she had vacationed for many years. Today, Stanislaw preaches what she calls The Four Pillars of Health—wholesome nutrition, regular movement, relaxation and adequate sleep and emo-

tional well-being—in both her individual consultation and her group retreats. She meets clients in the comfort of their own homes. And she customizes group and corporate retreats that could include such things as an organic breakfast

No Other Fitness Program Like It!


n Feb. 1, 2010, Alex Margolin, voted Best Trainer in the Bay Area, and Kyl Samway, voted Best Trainer in the Valley, opened 5B CrossFit, Blaine County’s premiere CrossFit training facility ( Samway and Margolin have created a health and fitness center and community where people of all fitness levels learn the CrossFit method ( CrossFit is a unique training philosophy that incorporates Olympic and barbell lifting, basic gymnastics and forms of traditional cardio exercise in combinations that deliver unparalleled health and fitness. CrossFit uses only funtional movements that are natural and essential to daily activities and sports. The 5B CrossFit program teaches members how to improve 10 general physical skills: flexibility, strength, cardiorespiratory endurance, stamina, power, speed, accuracy, agility, coordination and balance. As well, regular attendees, whether top-level skiers or lifelong couch potatoes, will


see marked boosts in capacity and performance. Proficiency at these general skills creates a solid fitness base from which athletes and non-athletes alike can climb to new levels of performance. Samway and Margolin create all programming for the gym and a coach is present at every workout to explain and teach the technical aspects of the movements. The true beauty of these small group workouts is two-

fold: they change daily (always challenging and never boring), and they are infinitely scalable (anyone can do them, regardless of age or fitness ability). All clients begin with three private Elements classes to teach the basic movements, and so that the coaches get to know the unique needs of clients before they become regular participants. Come in for a free workout, or sign up for an Elements class twp today!

hat is colon hydrotherapy? Colon hydrotherapy is an extended and more complete form of an enema. The concept involves the mechanical process of infusing warm filtered water into the rectum with the objective of cleansing and balancing the colon. This procedure removes fecal material from the colon walls and dilutes the bacterial toxin concentration in

the large intestine. The therapeutic effects of colon hydrotherapy are improved muscle tone, which facilitates peristaltic action and enhances the absorption of nutrients from the cecum and ascending colon while minimizing the absorption of toxic waste material. The cleansing effect of colon hydrotherapy reduces stagnation and subsequent bacterial prolifera-

tion in the colon and helps to maintain the harmony of the intestinal flora in promoting optional health. The fastest way to improve the body’s immune system is to clean the colon. Colon hydrotherapy cleanses and rejuvenates the portion of the immune system that resides in the intestinal tract. twp

briefs S.V. Ski Education Foundation results

Sun Valley’s Nordic phenom Mike Sinnott is currently second in the overall SuperTour standings as the finals head into Sun Valley in late March. If he manages to win the SuperTour Overall he will earn a free trip to the World Cup in Fall 2011. Sinnot placed sixth in the 10K Free and fifth in the 15K classic at the SuperTour in Minneapolis this past weekend. Only 1 second separated him from the podium and only 10 seconds from first. Four Olympic Development Team athletes travelled to Soldier Hollow for the University of Utah Invitational and did a great job racing on the col-

lege circuit which is littered with fast American and European skiers. Nicole DeYong placed 4th twice, Matt Gelso led the men with a 3rd and 4th place. Other athletes with a local connection who were racing included Miles Havlick, who won the Men’s 10K Free; Alexa Turzian (5th/3rd), and Reid Pletcher (5th/8th). In Alpine Skiing, Jordan Fitzgerald and Will Harder have been invited to race in the Topolino Shoot-Out. Winners of this regional event will travel to Italy to compete in the Topolino race which is universally regarded as the “world championships” for this age group (13-14).

Cody Acupuncture Clinic A Rosemary Cody, L.Ac. • (208) 720-7530 • 12 E. Walnut St., Hailey

t Cody Acupuncture Clinic, Rosemary Cody wants to partner with you on your path to health. She believes that the ancient wisdom of Oriental Medicine, with its truly holistic view, can guide you toward optimal health and fitness. More than just acupuncture, Oriental Medicine encompasses herbal medicine, body therapy and nutrition. It is safe, effective and can complement your existing medical therapies. Happy to be established back in the Wood River Valley, Rosemary brings with her 17 years of experience. In Anchorage, Alaska, she maintained a busy practice, developed the first complementary medicine program in the Alaska Native Medical Center, and was the first acupuncturist to be credentialed in Alaska’s hospital system. In her Hailey practice, Rosemary treats a wide spectrum of disorders. Regulating allergies and reducing pain and stress are “popular.” Rosemary also holds a special interest in treating infertility, an area in which she has extensive training and expe-


rience. She loves working with couples to achieve their goal of having a child. As part of a community known for its generosity, Rosemary has founded a free clinic for veterans, military and their families. It is open Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. In addition to full Oriental Medicine services, Rosemary

offers an affordable, community-style group acupuncture on Fridays for $20. A certified meditation instructor trained by Dr. Deepak Chopra, she teaches individual and group classes. On Thursday mornings a free silent meditation group meets at Cody Acupuncture Clinic at 8:30 a.m. twp

t’s an amazing workout and it’s available at Curves in Hailey now! The Curves Circuit with Zumba is the only 30-minute class that mixes the moves of Zumba with the proven strength training of Curves for one incredibly effective workout. All ages, fitness levels and dance abilities can participate in and benefit from Curves Circuit with Zumba fitness classes. During the 30-minute class, participants work out on each Curves strength machine for one minute—twice as long as during a traditional Curves workout— alternating upper, lower and core muscles. Then, the music cues the participant to change stations on the circuit, and she moves to an area between machines to do Zumba moves for one minute, which tone and sculpt the body while burning fat. A certified Zumba instructor teaches simple, modified Zumba moves from the center of the circuit. Lory Rainey and Asia Plow-


man are the Zumba instructors and they bring their enthusiasm, energy and fun to the circuit! “I love this workout! Curves was already great, and with Zumba, it’s even better!” says Sandy C. Curves is a facility especially designed for women featuring a 30-minute strength and cardio workout on hydraulic machines

Dao Communications A

Dayle Ohlau • (208) 309-1219

s a teacher and student of life through communications and yoga, I am reminded of ‘suffering’. It is taught in Buddhism that life is suffering. With this thought comes the idea of compassion…”to suffer with.” To be able to embody the feeling of compassion for all students, I believe, is to know that all other positive qualities will emerge from that place. From the Tao Te Ching: “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. Compassion toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.” In my day-to-day observances of other people and their karmicinduced actions, I recognize micro-judgments and observe thought processes in relation to those judgments, and remember that we are experiential beings playing out a role in life that is temporal and lesson based. “It is not I, but the Spirit within, who

does these things I see before me.” This beautiful principle guides me through my teaching, as I connect with, and honor, my students. Dayle can be reached at (208) 309-1219. Classes are forming

now for Non-Violent Communication. Dayle teaches yoga at FitWorks in Hailey at the Community Campus – and is now taking appointments for Healing Touch Therapy. twp

identified their Four Seasons spa as a “necessity” in their busy lives, providing an opportunity for a moment of stillness and reflection, thereby promoting more complete relaxation for a better night’s sleep. Such therapeutic ritual has the capacity to induce a peace and calmness at the conclusion of the day. An alternative tradition advocates sunrise application of hydrotherapy prior

to venturing into the workplace. Certainly a soak in a Hot Springs spa is the perfect ending to an active day on the hills and trails of our playground, as well as the perfect antidote to the stress and pressures often present in our daily lives. A spa from Four Seasons can provide sanctuary—a safe and healthy space. twp

Jeff R. Roth Dental Studio


(208) 788-7766 • 408 S. Main St., Ste. 1, Hailey

eff Roth’s first year as a dentist led quickly to a moment of decision: find a different way to practice or change careers. Doing dentistry in a multi-office practice centered entirely on serving patients with HMO dental plans, Dr. Roth felt like part of an assembly line. No time was provided for true care or relationships with patients or team. Fortunately, Roth found another way. He opened a new practice, focusing on relationships and health with a relaxed office environment—a calmer atmosphere. Bringing office environment and goals into alignment with his original reasons for becoming a dentist led to more fulfillment for patients and team. The team comes first. “We believe the team must be talented, have a “just help” attitude and be happy and secure before they can truly help others. Health is an entire lifestyle, after all,” says Dr. Roth. This great team seeks to truly listen to those who place their trust in them. The dentist sees one patient at a time and insists on the principle “never treat a stranger.” Providing all aspects of dental care, the team is expert at implants and restoring natural, beautiful smiles and a healthy, comfortably functioning mouth and body. The office uses the latest technologies and techniques proven to improve the dental experience and level of care for their patients. Patients benefit from the team’s dedication to contwp tinuing education.

s there anything better than a good night’s sleep? As Americans are pushed to work longer hours for less pay, sleep habits have changed for the worse. Just ask Scott Shane who has opened the first mattress store in the Valley in Hailey called Wood River Mattress. “Your mattress is without a doubt the most important piece of furniture in your home,” he said. “You spend one-third of your life asleep. It’s where you rejuvenate. You might even call it a rejuvenation chamber. Studies have shown that the average adult needs seven to nine hours of sleep each night for optimum health and to be effective in their working day. Studies also show that those that get six hours or less a night are 12 percent more likely to suffer from a premature death. There is also $3-$5 billion a year attributed to lost revenues due to worker sleep deprivation. Without enough sleep you will lack focus, concentration and creativity and it will influence what kind of a day you’ll have. The brain needs to get the deeper levels of sleep,” he said. Much of this is achieved by the mattress you sleep on. Shane carries three types at his store: latex foam, memory foam and the older metal-coil mattresses. The foam mattress, although more expensive, has attributes that make it more desirable. The foam mattress allows you to sleep without putting stress on the body’s pressure points like the hips and the shoulders. The key is better circulation or blood

flow. Coil mattresses, although fine at first, can cut off circulation as the mattress and the metal springs age. If you cut off circulation, which the foam mattresses do not, the body needs to toss and turn to get the circulation moving again. The brain has to do this job and in turn wakes you up from deeper REM levels of sleep. Because the foam puts no pressure on blood vessels, you can sleep in one spot for a longer period of time and thus achieve a deeper, more restful, sleep for the night. To find the best mattress for you, take a visit to Shane’s attractive new store in downtown Hailey. While conducting this interview, business was rather brisk and one customer remarked how much fun it was to try out the different beds. “The one thing I can tell you is that you have to try out the mattress before you buy it,” Shane said. Shane is a fourth-generation Idahoan and each generation has worked in the furniture business, beginning with his

great-grandfather at the turn of the century. After a while in Boise, he saw an opportunity in the Valley and decided to open up shop here. He had been visiting Sun Valley since he was a child. “We felt we could fill a need and provide the Valley with mattresses. The idea is that you wouldn’t have to go to Boise or Twin Falls and the great thing is that we are the same price or cheaper and that we will deliver to your home. So here we are. So far the market has been really strong and active. A lot of people really need beds.” Prices can range from $188 to $4000 and the foam mattresses have a 20year warranty and the coil beds a 10-year warranty. Right now the store carries mattresses and foundations—called a set— “but sometimes a person just needs a mattress. Toward spring, we will be ramping up with bedding accessories, pillows and mattress accessories.” For more information call Shane at 788-4438. twp

But I also want them to leave feeling inspired to continue what they’ve started when they go home. And I’ll follow up with them with weekly phone calls,” she said.

Make a change

There are some little changes that people can make to achieve a feeling of better health, Dr. Jody Stanislaw says: • Start out by making a promise that you will have vegetables at every meal. • Eat protein at breakfast, such as eggs, nuts or cheese on toast. Toss out the cereal, except for slow-cooking oatmeal—it contains too much sugar. • Don’t eat anything that comes in a box and contains more than six ingredients. • Move any way you can. And do a little more moving every day. • Add a five-minute walk. One of the best ways to cleanse your body of toxins from polluted water and other sources of pollution is by exhaling, Stanislaw says. And you exhale more when you breathe hard during exercise. • Keep yourself on track by writing up a list of the benefits you get from eating well and exercising. Tape it to your bathroom mirror where you will see it every day. • Sleep! It builds up the cells that have been damaged by the hustle-bustle of everyday life. And it burns more calories sleeping than sitting in a chair. • Avoid emails and TV as you prepare for sleep. Instead, drink chamomile tea, which calms nerves.

High cholesterol?

Reduce it by eating lots of vegetables—the fiber acts as a binder for cholesterol, allowing it to be carried out of the body. Take psyllium husk powder, a fiber supplement, before meals to make you feel full sooner and eat less. Eat lots of garlic—or, at least, a daily supplement that contains 4,000 micrograms of allicin. Drink at least one cup of green tea per day. Use lots of turmeric spice. Reduce the amount of meat you eat. Take Vitamin C to heal the cells. And use a CoQ10 supplement to improve the functioning of your heart.

High blood pressure?

Lower it with a high-potency multivitamin, 100 milligrams of CoQ10, 1,200 milligrams of magnesium, garlic, 1,000 milligrams of Vitamin C, 400 International Units of Vitamin E and a tablespoon of flaxseed oil a day. Get regular exercise, adequate sleep, reduce stress, reduce caffeine and alcohol, eliminate fried foods and high-fat foods, reduce your daily intake of salt, sugar, canned or packaged foods, chocolate and refined white starches, such as bread, rice and pasta. Increase your consumption of fish, such as salmon and tuna, while reducing red meat and other animal fat. Increase fiber intake by increasing fruits and vegetables. Bananas, watermelon, carrots, spinach, parsley, celery, raw garlic, raw onion and beetroot all contain nutrients that lower blood pressure, as does green tea. Close your eyes, take three deep breaths. Then put your hands on your abdomen and focus your attention on breathing twp into your belly.
