One of the perks of competing in the Olympics was the opportunity to witness the “Miracle on Ice” game in which the U.S. hockey team defeated the Soviet team, which was considered to be the best in the world, at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y. “The energy in that arena was phenomenal,” Sun Valley native Pete Patterson said. “It wasn’t even the final game but it was THE game.” Team USA went on to win gold.

ete Patterson did it all as a youngster, from playing hockey to bouncing through elephant-sized moguls on Limelight. But it was an odyssey on skinny crosscountry skis that helped him gain an edge on his Olympic competitors in the 1980 downhill at Lake Placid. Forced to take a year off from the racing circuit to recuperate from a broken leg that would have ended other skiing careers, the Sun Valley native made the Junior National Nordic Team. And he believes the time he spent on those twoinch-wide skis helped propel him to the best downhill showing an American man had made at the Olympics at that time. “The skis are so narrow that if you’re even a little on edge, it’s going to slow you down,” said Patterson, who added that Nordic racing was the hardest sport he’d ever done. “I ended up doing a lot of gliding on the downhills with cross-country skis—I even took them to Europe with me and trained on them in my spare time. They helped my balance and I think they improved my time.” Indeed, if it hadn’t been for a split-second mistake on the top half of the course, Patterson might have medaled. But still he managed to finish fifth. And that showing was part of why he was inducted into the Sun Valley Ski Hall of Fame last Wednesday, along with nine others. “I had posted the second and third fastest time in training runs. But I made a tiny mistake on the upper part of the course, getting off a little on a jump. I

knew I had to make up for it and I posted the fastest time on the bottom of the course. Still, I kick myself a little,” he recalled. Patterson, who always sports a ready smile and a gracious spirit, still lives and plays in the shadow of the mountain that fueled his career as an Olympic skier. But the spirit of adventure he gained on Sun Valley’s premier mountain has taken him far, as well—to a bronze medal in the combined at the 1978 World Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen; the world’s first telemark descent of the Polish glacier route on Aconcagua—South America’s highest peak; up numerous 20,000-foot peaks in the Himalaya; and around the world, guiding others on skiing, climbing and trekking adventures. Patterson grew up in a 1,300-squarefoot, L-shaped home where the Warm Springs Lodge now sits. His father and mother—James and Joan Scribner Patterson, who came here as ski instructors—had bought the property and built the house when there were just a few houses along the dirt road that led to the base of Warm Springs. “People would ski down Warm Springs at the end of the day and a bus would be waiting to pick them up. They’d have to cross Warm Springs on a little bridge and it would ice up in the afternoon so my dad was always pulling people out of the river,” Patterson recalled. When they weren’t skiing, Pete and his four siblings played winter baseball on a patch of ground at the base of Warm Springs that stayed free of snow, thanks to the natural hot water there. But in
1967, the family moved to one of the first residences on Saddle Road, turning their home over to Sun Valley, which turned it into the North Face hut. “I hated to leave. But it was cold and dark there in January and February and my mom was ready to leave,” Patterson recalled. In 1974 Patterson made the U.S. Ski Team at the age of 17 and posted a strong 13th showing in the downhill at the Innsbruck Olympics. The U.S. Ski Team, which included Phil and Steve Mahre, trained with the Swedish team leading up to the Olympics. The Americans taught the Swedes football; the Swedes taught them about soccer and hockey. “To get better, you need to train with better people. I got to train with Sweden’s Ingemar Stenmark who was the best in the world, the guy I looked up to most. He was a quiet, serious skier who worked from sunup to sundown and trained harder than anyone. He was the type who even built his own high jump when he thought that would help with his training.” Still, Patterson looked forward to the times he got to come home and work with local coaches who, he says, were as good as those at the national level. “The local coaches were able to focus more attention on me and get me back on track,” he said. “I was pretty much just an average skier, but I loved the sport and I had great coaches who said, ‘If you work hard enough, you can do well.’

Boulder Mountain Tour Features Strong Finishes by Local Skiers Nils Koons fought tooth and nail for third place—no doubt the ice on his beard slowed him down.
Landon Nurge warmed his hands at the pizza oven as he awaited his Sprint Race Thursday night.
BY KAREN BOSSICK
Rebecca Dussault scissored her way in at 20th place overall, just ahead of Ketchum’s Olympian Morgan Arritola, who was a half-second behind. Chelsea Holmes of Ketchum was fast on Arritola’s heels, while Evelyn Dong, a multiple Boulder Mountain Tour winner, followed her in fourth. On Thursday, the future of Nordic skiing took their places as youngsters raced around an oval across from the Ketchum Post Office. There were a few spills, but mostly just smiles as the skiers made their turns before the watchful eye of U.S. Olympic Committee member Alicia McConnell, who was in town to assess Sun Valley’s potential as an Olympic training site. McConnell, a former lacrosse competitor, told Sun Valley’s elite athletes the next day that she was impressed with the strong community support, although she suggested that Sun Valley needs its own cowbells that it could sell to tourists as souvenirs. “Next year I want to train and come back and do the Boulder,” she added. tws
un Valley skiers made a strong showing in the Boulder Mountain Tour Saturday as they scissored their way down the Harriman Trail from Galena Lodge to the Sawtooth National Recreation Area Headquarters. The temperature registered minus-8 at Galena Lodge at the race start and the cold conditions slowed the skiers, despite the tailwind. “What’d you do to the snow!?” race director Kevin Swigert kidded groomer Eric Rector as the two awaited the first skiers at the finish line. Finally, 2009 American Birkebeiner champion Matthew Liebsch showed up an hour and 13 minutes after the air horn had signaled the start of the 32-kilometer race. He cruised in as Lars Flora, who used to train in Sun Valley, duked it out with Nils Koons of Augusta, Maine, for second and third place. Ketchum skier Matt Gelso, who had led during part of the race, ended up 19 seconds out of first place at fifth and Ketchum resident Kevin Bolger filled out the top 10, as well.
It’s not Funny, it’s a Bunny Herding Sheep BY KAREN BOSSICK
e’ve had Ivan Doig and Baxter Black. Now, how about Champis the bunny? This tiny bunny would be a swell star for the Trailing of the Sheep Festival next October. The bunny has become a YouTube sensation as he herds the much bigger sheep. The 5-year-old pet rabbit from the small village of Kal in northern Sweden likely picked up
his mutton herding skills from watching the dogs at work. His owner, Greta Vigren, said she first began noticing his herding last spring. “He just started to behave like a sheepdog,” she told a reporter. “He’s like a king for the whole group. He thinks he rules over both the sheep and the hens. He has a very big ego.” To see this sheep-herding bunny for yourself, go to YouTube and search for rabbit tws herding sheep.

Love Whatâ€™s Real
â€œStudies show that one in five teens say that their friends are victims of dating violence, and nearly half of teens who are in relationships know friends who are verbally abused,â€? said U.S. Senator Mike Crapo. To prevent these situations, The Advocates will facilitate student and parent seminars to talk about healthy dating relationships during February - Teen Dating Violence Awareness & Prevention Month. According to Sen. Crapo, the awareness efforts from organizations like The Advocates aid tremendously in making sure victims know where to turn for help, but it is ultimately the responsibility of all of us to speak up when we see violence and stop it. To boost statewide participation in prevention and education efforts, all Idaho secondary schools received the 2012 â€œLove Whatâ€™s Realâ€? toolkit, which includes posters, brochures, bookmarks, lanyards, buttons, stickers, and draw-string backpacks. The Advocatesâ€™ presentations will focus on healthy relationships, warning signs of abuse and effective bystander strategies for intervention. The organization is also hosting a booth during lunch Feb. 21-24, and participating in various high school activities throughout the month. Please call Darrel or Travis at The Advocates for more information, 208-788-4191.

Opera Features Met Winner Michelle Johnson BY KAREN BOSSICK
ichelle Johnson grew up singing arias while her fellow teen-agers were singing Motown on the streets of Houston. The actor’s daughter had been captivated by the drama, pageantry and passion of opera after seeing “Madame Butterfly” on TV and immediately cajoled her parents into voice lessons. Her athletic brothers teased her. But their teasing turned to admiration when the young soprano won The Metropolitan Opera’s 2011 National Council Auditions, besting hundreds of other young aspiring opera singers to walk away with the $15,000 grand prize and the assurance of a performance with The Met orchestra. “It was a week and a half of crazy experiences,” recalled Johnson. “I was so happy to be singing on the same stage as all the opera greats. We were on display a lot and you always had to be doing your best and be at your nicest—you never had time to let your hair down and breathe. By the final concert I just wanted to get out there and do what I do and I was ecstatic when I won. I knew my life wouldn’t be the same. I knew I was suddenly on everyone’s radar.” One of the radars she showed up on was that of Sun Valley Opera, which immediately snagged her for its winter concert this coming Friday before her stock went sky high. Johnson and her fiancé, Brian Major, a velvety baritone who has appeared in “Cosi fan tutte” and “Carmen,” will present a night of love songs in a concert titled “Love Is In The Air” at 8 p.m. Friday in the Sun Valley Opera House. They will be accompanied by concert pianist Sean Rogers. They will perform some difficult arias never before performed in Sun Valley, such as Donizetti’s “Bella siccome un angelo” from “Don Pasquale.” They will perform some Broadway favorites, such as “Wheels of a Dream” from “Ragtime,” “The Impossible Dream” from “Man of La Mancha,” Gershwin’s “Summertime” from “Porgy and Bess” and “I’ve Got Rhythm” from “Girl Crazy,” and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “If I loved You” from

“Carousel.” They also will perform a couple of gospel numbers—“He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” and Hal Johnson’s “Witness.” Sun Valley Opera President Frank Meyer noted that it’s the dream of every young opera singer to win the prestigious Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. “The careers of such opera greats as Rene Fleming and Thomas Hampson were launched by winning the grand prize,” he said. “It’s akin to winning ‘American Idol’ if you’re an aspiring pop star.” Major traces his career back to a friend in Neptune, N.J., who took him to Handel’s “Messiah” every year. Major would usher while his mentor would sing. Although he played trumpet in high school, Major joined glee club at Morehouse College in Atlanta because he didn’t want to be subjected to the stifling heat and humidity on the football field with the marching band. “Glee introduced me to so many types of music. I got to do ‘Aida’ with the Atlanta Opera in 2007 and I liked the passion. It was high intensity all the time,” he said. “Brian’s very dramatic,” added his fiancée. “With him, everything is larger than life. He’s very dramatic and funny—a real spark on stage.” Johnson and Major relish the opportunity to perform together, given hectic schedules that typically take them away from each other. The two met at the Boston University Opera Institute but were separated soon after when Johnson was accepted into the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia while

Major stayed behind to finish his Master of Music degree at Boston University. “We’ve been doing this for four years so we’ve learned to set aside time for each other. I really believe if we love each other we won’t go longer than two or three weeks without seeing one another. If I’m not in a show and he is, I’ll go to where he’s at, and vice versa,” said Johnson, whose 2012 appearances include the title role in “Aida” with the Glimmerglass Opera, Leonora in “Il Trovatore” with the Opera in the Heights and Verdi’s “Requiem” at Boston University. The two will get married in May after Johnson finishes up at the Academy. “Even though we’re singing all these love songs for Sun Valley Opera, we don’t have ‘our’ song yet,” noted Johnson. “We need to think of one before May when we get married!” tws

Olympics, too, and she was one of my best training partners. She worked harder than anyone, even training on her day off.” Few downhill racers walk away from the sport without injuries. But Patterson sustained some horrific injuries, including a broken back. In one case, the racer before him fell and before course officials removed the ski, Patterson hit it at 80-plus miles per hour. The ski went through his boot, slicing his leg. Despite his injuries, Patterson decided he wasn’t ready to retire yet. He was still young and he could shake off fear of another injury. The scrappy 5-foot-5 skier moved in with Dr. Richard Steadman, who treated countless professional athletes, at the doctor’s home in Tahoe. And he and the other athletes staying there went to work rehabilitating themselves as soon as they awakened every morning while Steadman’s wife cooked them three squares. Though he’s grateful for his Olympic experience, Patterson said he doesn’t dwell on it. “It was great to go to Europe as a teen and see what was out there in the real world—that made me work even harder. And it certainly set the stage for what I do today. “It’s such a team effort, from the coaches working so hard to coach you, to the people raising the money to send me to Europe, to Sun Valley Company, which
opened Greyhawk at 8 every morning so I could work with Michel Rudigoz. Everyone set me up for success. I don’t think a lot of other places would’ve given support this community did, and you can’t do it alone.” When tired knees led Patterson to retire after eight years on the U.S. Ski Team, he became a guide with Sun Valley HeliSki. Then he joined the Crist brothers and Gerry Moffat on an adventure sponsored by “Men’s Journal.” “They asked where we wanted to go and all of us picked Greenland. We’d been flying over Greenland going to Europe looking down and wondering what it was like all these years.” The following year, Patterson returned to Greenland—this time, with clients. He still takes clients—mostly Europeans— there. They live on boats, eat fish they catch and ski the fjords. “Greenland’s huge—it’s the biggest island in the world, even bigger than Texas. And around the perimeter there are mountain glaciers, pristine wilderness. We ski hundreds of miles of coastline—mountain after mountain. It’s like skiing Lower College for 6,000 feet. We can ski all the way to the sea. The beauty is phenomenal, the air so clear. And we’re the only ones there.” To diversify, Patterson and his wife Kim Jacobs started Mountain Spirits 12 years ago to lead trekking, mountaineer-
Who Needs Minimum Revenue Gaurantees–and Other Aha Moments from the Banff Film Festival BY KAREN BOSSICK
e have a small group of people in this valley who work pretty hard to establish minimum revenue guarantees to keep flights flying into Sun Valley from places like Los Angeles and Oakland. But we sometimes forget how coveted those seats can be. Nancy Hansen, the emcee for this weekend’s Banff Film Festival, said she found out when she boarded a flight from Los Angeles to Sun Valley a few days ago. Turned out the 80-seat jet was overbooked by 10. And nobody was giving up their seats, no matter what incentives the flight attendants offered them. Finally, after a lengthy period of bartering, Hansen said, the flight attendants raised the stakes high enough that 10 people were persuaded to give up their seats. And the plane was

on its way. The film festival, which sold out well in advance both nights, featured lots of Idaho connections, from a dive by Super Bowl celeb Sketchy Andy off the Perrine Bridge outside of Twin Falls, to some pretty cool shots of hardy souls kayaking Idaho’s rivers in the snow. And Hailey artist Kim Howard found plenty of connections to her past life from a short movie about 70-year-old ski bums who pile into the back of a pickup truck every morning to ski the trees in and around Howard’s former home near Nelson, British Columbia. The real humdinger, though, came as Howard watched a skier ski down the city’s steep, steep streets and steps, crossing one street after another, in the visually dazzling movie “All.I.Can: The Short Cut.” “He went right past my old house!” she gasped. tws

ing, climbing trips supported by yaks and donkeys to places like Nepal, Chile and Thailand. In recent years, the focus has shifted to family trips and trips for private groups of 12 or less. “It’s a lot about fun, but it’s also a lot about great life experiences with other cultures and places on the planet,” said Patterson. Patterson is particularly fond of Nepal where he tries to arrange treks in areas not inundated by tourists. “Patagonia is beautiful, but it doesn’t have the culture—you don’t see villages that are unchanged for 500 years. You look at the Nepali people and you realize how fortunate we have it. They don’t have much, but you never see them down.” Even after all these years, Patterson still looks forward to the times he can come home and ski Baldy for a month or two at a time. “Baldy for me is at the top. Other resorts in Europe are bigger, but they’re also more expensive and they always have a waiting line. Baldy’s consistent pitch and lack of crowds can’t be beat and it’s pretty amazing what Sun Valley’s done with the lodges.

briefs Bon Voyage to Daly
Friends of The Community library are invited to say “bon voyage” to the library’s departing executive director, Colleen Daly, from 4 to 6 p.m. today at the library. Daly has a new job as development director of the American Academy in Rome. She will be based in New York but making plenty of trips to the campus in Rome which focuses on independent study and research in the arts and humanities. Daly has requested no gifts, and chances are she won’t be delivering her usual spiel about the 17 women who contributed a dollar to start the library way back in the mid-1950s.
The Boulder Mountain Tour may be over. But the Boulder Backwards is just around the corner. The annual event, a classic ski up the Boulder Mountain Trail, starts at 10 a.m. at Sawtooth National Recreation Area headquarters seven miles north of Ketchum. Or skiers may jump on the trail at Baker Creek. Mountain Fairy will offer shuttles back to skiers cars from Galena Lodge. Still panting from the Boulder? Not to worry. The Backwards Boulder is not a race — it’s just for fun.
Crows: Not As Common As You Might Think If youâ€™ve witnessed a crow maneu-
vering through a car window to steal cookies or a magpie unzipping a childâ€™s backpack to grab chips, their intelligence might not surprise you. Crows belong to the Corvidae family, whose 113 species include ravens, magpies, and jays. Corvidsâ€™ large brainto-body-mass ratio is equal to that of great apes, dolphins, and whales, and is only slightly lower than humans. Recent research has shown that Corvids are capable of complex reasoning. These birds have the ability to make and use toolsâ€”skills that were initially regarded as unique to humans and some higher mammals. In Japan, crows perch over crosswalks and drop nuts in the path of oncoming cars. When the lights turn red, they swoop down and collect the nutmeats. In Norway and Sweden, crows often pick up ice fishing lines and walk backwards, pulling the line out of the hole to reach the bait or hooked fish. In order to access food in garbage bins, UK rooks pull the bin liner upwards, bringing the food within their reach. If Western scrub jays think they have been observed while storing their food, they will re-hide the food so a competitor will lose track of where it is. Interested in learning more about these birds?

The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men STORY & PHOTO BY BALI SZABO
he great feature of every day was its end, especially in the early going, with the long 10- to 12-mile marches, the frequent rain, the similar terrain, fatigued bodies, the aches and pains. Dinner was the great meal of the day, and it became obvious early on that it would be something to look forward to. It wasnâ€™t exactly Spam and a raw carrot. None of us knew what to expect, including our trip leader, Jack Turner. This was his first Nepal trip. At least he knew that he didnâ€™t have to cook. We already heard murmurs of incredulity from him. He wasnâ€™t used to this level of congenial organization. To him, this was more of a mountaineering trip than a safari. Here he didnâ€™t have to worry about the daily logistics. Up to now, he had guided in the Karakoram of Pakistan, a different world of barren landscapes and opportunistic, bait-and-switch, dour, untrustworthy and seldom competent locals. To Jack, this was the lap of luxury. He had little to do; he could be one of us. I saw the live chickens atop the portersâ€™ loads, so I pretty much knew what was for dinner. As we sat in the mess tent waiting for supper, we had a chance to swap war stories and get acquainted. On this early evening, the kitchen boys brought a big bowl of fragrant chicken soup accompanied by freshly fried corn chips. (Corn was a widely grown, mid-altitude crop here, along with millet.) We devoured it

all. The boys returned, cleared the table and served the rest of the meal: rice mixed with eggs and vegetables, potatoes tossed with spinach, and chicken stewed in a vegetable sauce. Not bad for camping out. Noting our delight, the head Sherpa (sirdar), Ang Lagpa, brought over the head cook, Nyima Tenzing. He poked his head in the tent and got a standing ovation. Somewhat shy, he smiled, bowed and disappeared. Over dessert (fruit cup) we continued to talk until the yawns started. It was 7 p.m. and time for bed. Weâ€™d be stirring by 5 a.m. There was one logistical detail Jack was powerless to affect. Mountain Travel always had a doctor on a mountaineering trip. As we pushed into the mountainous foothills, we were farther and farther from medical care. The
closest airport was three days away, depending on where we were. Our young doctor was Andy Leavitt. He had meticulously assembled two metal trunks full of medical supplies, the list supplied him by the young pioneer of highaltitude medicine, Andrew Hackett. (More on this great and dedicated doctor later.) We had to leave Kathmandu without our medical supplies. They were hung up in Delhi by customs. These trunks contained a treasure trove of goodies, and they could fetch a small fortune on the black market of India, or any other Asian country. Customs was hoping that we wouldnâ€™t have the diplomatic muscle (connections) to wrestle these supplies away from them. They would benefit from the bootyâ€™s sale on the black market. That was the game, and individuals have suffered the consequences of this bit of official corruption for decades. Fortunately, Mountain Travel was well-connected, and they were able to pull strings and have the trunks released, after a weekâ€™s delay, from Delhi to Kathmandu. The plan was for it to catch up to us, or, in case of flight delays, be hauled over the formidable Tesi Lapscha Pass to meet us before our ascent of this 19,000-foot pass. For the time being, we only had Jack Turnerâ€™s well-stocked medical kit. Dr. Leavitt was somewhat crestfallen. For him, six monthsâ€™ planning went out the window, and we were at increased risk. tws
UI-Blaine Extension Tips
What To Do With Your Tax Rebate? If I were standing right there, could you tell me exactly how you would use that extra $600 or $1,200 check? If not, or it takes you a few minutes, or you answered, â€œIâ€™d pay bills,â€? or vaguely stated, â€œIâ€™d save it,â€? your financial plan needs some tuning up. If youâ€™re just paying bills, or just saving for some unknown future expense, you are just keeping your head above water, but not really getting anywhere. Having a plan means having direction. The first thing that most people need to do with their rebate check is set up an emergency expense fund. This is different than simply saving money, because itâ€™s saving with a purpose. Experts recommend at least three monthsâ€™ worth of expenses be saved for emergencies in a high-yield account. The point of an emergency fund is so you donâ€™t ever have to rely on debt in a financial crunch. Paying off some debts is the next best thing to consider, but, for most of us, paying off debts simply means wiping the slate clean so that we can get new debt. Debt is usually not the problem. If you pay off your debts only to add new ones later on, you are not fixing the problem but instead making yourself feel better for a while. To fix the problem, you need to figure out why you are in debt. Then you can make up your mind to fix that problem and become permanently debt-free. Once you are debt-free and have saved for emergencies, itâ€™s good to invest in your future by contributing to a 401(k) or a Roth IRA, and save up for a home, or pay extra to your mortgage. The steps of financial freedom are: 1. Spend less than you make 2. Prevent financial emergencies 3. Become debt-free 4. Prepare for retirement 5. Teach kids about money 6. Pay off your home early 7.

The Voice of an Angel BY JONATHAN KANE
Wood River Chess in Utah STORY & PHOTOS BY ADAM PORTH
Students from Wood River High School attended the West Jordan Scholastic Chess Open with tremendous success. Of the eleven students that competed in the tournament, nine won individual trophies. The WRHS Chess Team won second place in the ninth-grade section, with Desmond Porth (4.0 pts.), Riley Clark (3.5 pts.), Jake Whitlock (2.5 pts.), and Quinn Gilman (2.0 pts.). Desmond Porth won first place in the ninth-grade section. WRHS also won third place in the high school section. Max Mihalic (3.0 pts.) led the high school team and won fourth place. There were approximately 47 players in each section and
nearly 16 schools that were competing. In the younger sections, Dylan Porth (4.5 pts.) was playing on one of the top boards in the sixth-grade section during the last round, but succumbed to time pressure after the hourlong game. In the K-3rd-grade section, Darwin Porth (3.0 pts.) did a very good job against nearly 84 players in that section! It was a good experience for the team, as it is rebuilding after losing six experienced seniors last year. The next tournament will be in Boise on Feb. 25 and will include the Girls’ Scholastic Championship and a Scholastic Novice tournament. For information on where to play, contact Adam Porth at 4509048 or visit www.adamporth. blogspot.com tws
hloe Barrymore, Wood River High School junior, is extremely self-assured and confident in her gifts as a singer. And why shouldn’t she be? Barrymore’s been singing at a high level since she was seven years old and is propelling herself toward a career in it. “Singing is my passion,” she said. “It’s what I always wanted to do and what I love so it makes me the most happy. I’ve just been blessed to discover it at such a young age.” Barrymore’s earliest memories are of singing alone in her room to her favorite pop stars. “Mostly it was people like Brittany Spears, Shania Twain and Faith Hill. I started at seven with Music ’n’ Me and studied with Janice Walton. At first, learning classical music was a bore, but Janice worked with me on the basics, like breathing, technique and diction. But singing is such a natural talent of mine that it’s kind of interesting that I never had to work that hard at it. A lot of the time I see other people struggle with things like stage fright and learning songs and the music. That didn’t happen with me.” Barrymore’s first performance was at the age of eight when she tackled the very difficult National Anthem. “It was for the Fourth of July and at a gathering of a lot of families. I was really nervous but I was definitely excited to show off what I could do. I was very confident at that age. My parents were very proud and have always been support-
ive. I’ve always loved performing since. Of course, I get butterflies, but when I get on stage, I’m in a zone and can’t remember what happens. I’m not thinking at all. I’m there to sing and nothing else. I’ve also tried musical theater and it’s something I hope to pursue as well. In seventh grade I was the lead in The Princess and the Pea, and last summer I was in the chorus of Footloose. I find it more difficult to be comfortable acting, but I’m working on it. Musical theater just feels fun and exciting.” Throughout elementary school and middle school, Barrymore took vocal lessons every week and was in the choir until this year. “I just wanted to focus more on my schoolwork and to take more required courses so I could clean my plate for my senior year. I want to graduate early and get a job so that I can make money before going to college.” She was also in the vocal group Colla Voce her freshman and sophomore years but felt that she slightly outgrew it. “Today, I study once a week with R.L. Rowsey in private lessons. He chooses pieces of music that I then learn fluently. He has helped me tremendously in areas like vowel control, diction and breathing. I also study music theory with him once a week on Saturdays with ten other students. It’s through the Sun Valley Symphony and School of Music. There we learn things like how to read notes and we do a thing called melodic dictation where we learn to write down notes as he plays them. It’s a real challenge but R.L. is the
best vocal teacher I’ve ever had. He’s always trying to get you to give more and he never settles for just good. He always believes that we can put more out there.” Barrymore hopes are to attend a music program at college on a vocal scholarship. “I want to go to school for performance and musical theater. I love the exhilarating feeling of performing and I want to learn how to be perfect on stage. I just want to look nice and stand properly because sometimes I feel awkward with what I do with my hands.” That’s probably the only thing that this talented junior feels awkward about as her confidence will surely carry her far in the tws world of music.

The Punch line Absolute Power Corrupts Jon rated this movie
BY JONATHAN KANE
A No need to worry! I overheard Tom saying he was going to get me a new Apple!!! PHOTO: SUSAN LITTLEFIELD Avid weekly paper reader, Susan Littlefield, who has lived in the Valley for over 35 years, claims that laughter is the best medicine. She creates these scenarios in her husbands N-scale model railroad.
bsolute power corrupts, or so the adage goes. In the new sci-fi flick Chronicle, what corrupts is superpowers and, in the hands of a lonely high school senior who turns dark, those powers can be formidable. Written and directed by a pair of 26-year-olds, Max Landis and Josh Trank, Chronicle proudly announces new talent on the scene. The film also boasts
some more talent in its three lead actorsâ€”Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordanâ€”especially DeHaan as the troubled youth at the heart of the story. The movie adapts the â€˜foundfootageâ€™ style of films like the Blair Witch Project, as DeHaan seeks to videotape the daily mundane events of his life. Although interesting, I find it hard to see how it adds to the progression of the narrative other than being a neat trick. Indeed, the writer has added a love interest that also videotapes to carry part of the load. Besides Blair Witch, the film also has elements of the classic movie Carrie of a teenager using his powers to lash back at his tormentors.
One night at a drunken party the three leads discover a mysterious hole out in a field and crazily descend into it. There they encounter an otherworldly crystal formation that seems to be alive. The result is that all three develop the ability to move objects with their minds â€“ called telekinesis. In the beginning, it all seems playful fun but DeHaan has some demons and things progress into darker territory. The result is a wild climax captured by various news feeds as DeHaan is finally stopped. Chronicle isnâ€™t great but itâ€™s pretty good sci-fi and certainly enough to keep you entertained for its roughly 90minute running time. tws
too busy and varied for that kind of dynamic. Do whatâ€™s necessary to keep your scene moving in a good direction. The ones who love you will try to keep up. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You would love it if someone would take initiative on your behalf. Instead, it feels like you have to do it all; otherwise, it wonâ€™t get done. Soon this dynamic will change. So for now, appreciate the fact that you are strong and able enough to take on such enormous responsibilities and execute them so well. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your dedication will pay off. Your talent will be nurtured and recognized. Knowing this will happen, you can relax and enjoy whatâ€™s going on around you. Have a little fun. What you learn in the process will make your work more valuable, meaningful and on point with the current milieu. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Itâ€™s as though you came to life with a particular belief system and itâ€™s a fixed part of your personality. Over the years, the way these beliefs have manifested has become a kind of trademark. This week youâ€™ll be able to look objectively at this aspect of you and appreciate how your character has shaped your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The special care you take in your physical presentation will be most effective. Even if no one comments or compliments you, you can be sure that the impression you make is felt and that it will make a difference in what people decide to do in the future. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19). While you concern yourself with doing whatâ€™s necessary to cover basic requirements and household expenses, someone close to you is thinking about a high-end luxury. Thereâ€™s a way to satisfy both needs and wants if you work together. Great goals require cooperation and teamwork. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Things that worked just yesterday can become quite dysfunctional overnight. Instead of worrying about what happened to change the scene or who is to blame, look for fixes. Problems can be solved easily while they are still quite small. And there is opportunity here, too. Youâ€™ll meet new helpful people. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You donâ€™t have all the answers you need, but you will. Knowing this should help you stop searching your mind and environment for indications that you are on the right track. Since you wonâ€™t get that validation for a while, the best you can do is act in a way that feels good and right and have a little more faith. THIS WEEKâ€™S BIRTHDAYS: Donâ€™t even try to deflect the energy lavished on you. It wonâ€™t work, so you may as well soak it all in. The next 10 weeks bring advancement. Youâ€™ll move ahead with projects, be promoted at work and become more deeply bonded with a loved one. Make a pitch in March. Financial luck will be the happy consequence of a family visit in June. Marriage proposals or second honeymoons happen later in the summer. Enroll in formal education or hire a coach or trainer in September.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Beware of those who believe they are so special that the rules donâ€™t apply to them. Someone who has little regard for the way things are generally done may seem at first charmingly seductive. But make no mistake: This type of troublemaker will eventually make trouble for you, too. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You never want your friends and loved ones to spend too much energy, attention or money on you. You prefer to be an easygoing presence in their lives. Itâ€™s OK to be high-maintenance sometimes. Everyone has a need to help others, and your loved ones will really enjoy being of service to you this week. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). A day spent thinking of what you donâ€™t yet have is a wasted day. However, if you consider your accomplishments, assess your resources and define steps to make your wishes a reality, you can call it a â€œplanning day,â€? which is not only useful, but necessary. Wednesday and Friday are ideal planning days. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Success seems to come easily to some people, which has a diminishing effect on your affection for them. Youâ€™re not one to let jealousy stand in the way of friendship, though you may mentally wrestle around a bit before you acquire the poise necessary to take the high road. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you didnâ€™t have anything else to do but give your love to a certain person, you would fill the hours in devotion, admiration and service. Alas, your life is much

Lucy, I’m Home!– in the Ski Hall of Fame STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
annette Burr Johnson never learned patience—you don’t win five Harriman races and a spot on the U.S. Olympic Ski Team by hanging back. So when emcee Nick Maricich tried to tout Johnson’s many accomplishments as she was being inducted into the Sun Valley Ski Hall of Fame last Wednesday, Johnson kept grabbing the microphone to expound on each of his points. Johnson, a member of the 1952 U.S. Olympic team, told how she got $60 a day to double for Lucille Ball for the two-part TV show “Lucy Goes to Sun Valley.” “I went round and round and round (on Sun Valley’s ice rink) and was supposed to fall and I got a concussion,” she said. “Luckily, I had her wig on—that saved me.” Johnson said she also donned Lucy’s “very expensive red wig” to double for Lucy in a scene where Lucy accidentally pushed movie star Fernando Lamas over a cornice for a wild ride down Baldy. “I swear to God it was straight down—and I broke my leg,” said Johnson, who was piggybacking on the ride. “I had one of the worst breaks of the year—a double compound. And when Dr. Moritz put my leg together, I gained four inches on one side.” Johnson recounted how she had an out-of-body experience following the procedure in which she saw herself 10 feet below. “Who was there but Desi Arnez… holding my hand, telling me all kinds of stories about when he got hurt!” she said. A few hundred people gathered outside the Ketchum-Sun Valley Heritage & Ski Museum in Ketchum’s Forest Service Park to honor 10 inductees in a ceremony that was filled with laughs and sprinkled with a few tears. Adults drank a Norwegian glogg of spiced mulled wine while youngsters toasted marshmallows for s’mores and sipped hot chocolate donated by Perry’s. Inductees included filmmaker Warren Miller, who got his start in Sun Valley, and the late Dick Durrance, a 1936 Olympian who cut Warm Springs’ runs and won the Harriman Cup three times. The latter accomplishment was akin to winning the famed Kitzbuhel downhill three times, said Maricich. Two-time Olympic biathlete Ntala Skinner Quintilio, the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s first Olympian, recounted how she called the national biathlete program from the high school pay phone to ask

if they were going to be funding biathletes after the biathlon was included in the Olympics. “You’d better fund the program because one of these days I’m going to be one of the best athletes this country has to offer,” she told them. Jenny Busdon, who started the Galena Lodge Benefit 16 years ago, recalled how she was horrified when she heard Galena Lodge was going to be torn down. “If we had lost Galena, we would’ve lost the trails around Galena,” she added. Elephant’s Perch owner Bob Rosso praised Charley French for his fluid moves down the moguls of Limelight where the former Scott USA engineer used to test boots and other ski products he designed. “It was like pouring water,” he said. Two-time Olympian Pete Patterson praised the Ski Hall of Fame for honoring not just athletes but also those who worked behind the scenes to make things better by building trails and holding fundraisers. Olympic medalist Christin Cooper praised longtime U.S. Ski Team coach Michel Rudigoz for having a sixth sense for keeping skiers sharp and willing to go to the ends of the earth.
“I came here and I said, ‘I don’t need to be in France. It’s much better here,’” Rudigoz told the crowd. Former Bigwood Ski Touring Center operators Bill and Annie Vanderbilt were praised for kick-starting the Nordic scene in the valley after they moved here from Washington State. ”Skate skiing came in and everyone pooh-poohed it. They said it’s not going to stick, but it did,” recalled Annie. “Many of the downhill skiers came into the sport because of skate skiing.” Sun Valley’s head Nordic coach Rick Kapala finished the ceremony, recalling how Hans Muehlegger lapped him twice the first time he ever rode his mountain bike on Fisher Creek. The former Sun Valley SnowSports School director, who came to Sun Valley as part of the “Austrian ski Mafia,” still rides from Ketchum to Alturas Lake on his bike during the summer. And he still skis from the SNRA to Galena Lodge and back during the winter. Muehlegger encouraged those in the crowd to get out and enjoy the trails, many of which he helped build: “You will have something you can enjoy for the rest of your life.” tws

Be Happy Now A Night of Happiness this Saturday: free yoga and flick BY KAREN BOSSICK
tart practicing your smile. Saturday is “World Happy Day.” The Sun Valley Wellness Institute, in partnership with lululemon, will celebrate the event from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday at All Things Sacred in The Galleria in Ketchum—catty-corner from Atkinsons’ Market. Cathie Caccia, owner of the Hailey Yoga Center, will conduct a free yoga class from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. A free screening of the new movie “HAPPY” will follow at 7 p.m., complete with a healthy popcorn bar and refreshments. The movie “HAPPY,” filmed by Academy Award-nominated director Roko Belic, uses reallife stories of people from the Louisiana bayou, the Namibia desert, the Brazilian beaches, the Bhutan mountains and even Mother Teresa’s Home for the Dying to illustrate the latest findings in the new field of positive psychology. The idea: to show viewers how to live more fulfilling, healthy and happy lives as they balance the allure of money, fame and social status with their needs for fulfilling relationships, health and personal fulfillment. The movie showing is free. But A Night of Happiness is a FUNraiser for the non-profit Sun Valley Wellness Institute, so voluntary donations of any amount will be happily accepted. “We are very excited to have

inch baking dish and Iâ€™ve never heard anyone say they didnâ€™t like it, but Iâ€™ve only been making it for 30-plus years! SUN: How did you get interested in cooking? Diane: As the youngest in our family, my mother would let me lick the beaters and frosting bowl and drink milk out of the tin measuring cup, but not help cook, so as soon as I had my own kitchen, homesickness inspired me to cook and bake. Â This particular recipe came from my undergraduate days at Wheaton College, a recipe from one of my professors. Â I was so pleased when she shared the recipe with me. Mother is gone now, but I make many of her â€œtried and trueâ€? recipes. SUN: How long have you lived in the Wood River Valley?
Diane: My family moved to Ketchum in 1961 when we bought the Ketchum Trailer Park on Knob Hill. What a great move from the farm in Ohio to the Wood River Valley! Â I went away to work and school after I graduated in 1969 from Wood River and I returned home to Hailey in the early 2000s. Â So, this has always been home to me, even though I had to leave for a while. SUN: What do you like about the Valley? Diane: I love the clean, fresh mountain air, the bright sunshine, the people here and living on the river in Hailey, walking distance to everything I need. Â I also love working at the Hailey Public Library and our patrons who come in. tws

a recipeâ€Śfrom my table to yours By MARGOT VANHORN

â€˘ 2 lbs. strawberries with leaves (rinsed and left to dry on paper towel) â€˘ 16 oz. chocolate chips (I use semisweet chips)
â€˘ 2 Tbsp. shortening or vegetable oil (which will cause chocolate to soften more at room temp) â€˘ 1 pkg. toothpicks
Insert toothpicks into the top of the strawberries. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring until smooth. Dip the strawberries into the mixture and then let them cool on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Refrigerate until ready to serve (will take about 30 minutes to harden). Note: if you want to get a bit fancy, melt Âź C. of white chocolate chips and drizzle in circular patterns around the cooled dark-chocolate berries. (P.S. I love Ina Garten. For her chocolate-dipped strawberries, she uses Â˝ C. semisweet chocolate chips and 3 Tbsp. heavy cream melted in a double boiler, and then dips the strawberries, etc. This is a nice variation on the more traditional chocolate-dipped strawberry.) Thank you, Margot, for your recipe. Enjoy everyone! If you have (or know someone who has) a recipe to share, e-mail chef@theweeklySUN.com

Well, I couldnâ€™t have said it betterâ€”and so I wonâ€™t. Additionally, have you noticed that the strawberries in our markets are plentiful and beautifully sweet? You could swear that each has been injected with a bit of sugar. So, for your sheer sinfulness, here is an easy and fun recipe to make, enjoy and share. tws

hen was the last time you showed appreciation for your body and all it does to support and move you? If you are like many, recent conversations with your physical structure have had a more negative tone. Perhaps you’ve heard yourself expressing resentment for your pain, lack of flexibility, poor motion, uneasy balance, lackluster race results… and on and on the body-bashing goes. February is the month of love and I encourage you to extend your feelings of affection and tenderness beyond chocolate and cards to include your body. Instead of lamenting your flaws, celebrate your skills and positive attributes. Your body is amazing! It allows you to perform basic actions such as reaching, bending and standing. And it enables more complex tasks such as dancing, skiing and swimming. When in pain, it is hard to find compassion for your body, which seems to have abandoned you. I have felt this way… think-

ing that I was doing everything right to keep my body in the best shape possible, only to be repeatedly knocked down with injury and poor performances. I had to change the way I interpreted my body’s messages. Discomfort, muscle tightness and compromised sports technique are how your body tells you that something isn’t working right. Your muscles and joints can’t talk; the only way they can get your attention is through feeling. The physical sensation of pain is your body’s last-resort mechanism to make you aware that something is wrong. Rather than working against me, my body was doing all it could to allow me to continue my chosen activities. My body was trying to help me despite its limitations. Ignoring my body’s messages, I rationalized that I was just having a bad day, continuing to push my body until it could no longer go on and made me stop and listen though injury and extreme agony. It doesn’t have to be this way. If your body isn’t functioning at 100 percent, take time this
month to find out what’s going on and address your issues. Determine what your body craves and take action. Perhaps you’re not sleeping enough and your body can’t recover; stress has worn you down and your body desires some relaxation and pampering; your nutrition isn’t adequate for your lifestyle; stretching and range-of-motion activities need to be added to your regimen to balance your motion; or the strain of continuous exercise has taken its toll and healing therapies are required. Whatever you need, take the time and devote the energy necessary to love your body this month. You and your body deserve it! tws

he U.S. Bank Small Business Annual Survey of 3,000 small-business owners nationwide reflects what many are experiencing here in Hailey: While doing okay, many reported they could be doing better, especially once the Great Recession resides. Their outlook is improving. More than a quarter of respondents reported higher sales, and 64 percent said their revenues were as good as the previous year. When asked in 2011 what was the most significant challenge facing their business, 27 percent said economic uncertainty. “Poor sales” was the second most common reason (16 percent), followed by federal regulations (12 percent), competition (9 percent) and taxes (8 percent). What may be a reflection of their uncertainty about the economy, 20 percent said they borrowed or tried to borrow money during the last six months. Those who did borrow took advantage of the historically low rates to refinance in order to improve their cash flow. Or, they became more efficient or effective by taking out a loan to replace a piece of equipment, or purchase a new or used car or truck. To survive, many said that they’ve had to adapt to technology, including using social networking for recruiting and business development. Most used were Facebook (74 percent), LinkedIn (57 percent), followed by industry communities (26 percent) and Twitter (23%). E-mail/ computer (60 percent) continues to be king (69 percent) when it comes to technologies smallbusiness owners say they cannot do without, followed by mobile phone (64 percent), landline (51 percent) and fax (31 percent). Only 10 percent expect their company’s revenue to be lower this year, 70 percent said they plan to keep their staffing levels intact, and 22 percent say they plan to hire. While this waitand-see approach has caused a lot of business owners to hold off on investing, what must not be overlooked is the importance of consistently reviewing and revising a company’s business plan, especially in light of our global economy. Events thousands of miles away could be an oppor-
tunity, or have a significant impact, on a business’s bottom line. U.S. Bank’s survey also asked if small businesses found their banker helpful. Results jumped seven points to 43 percent when the same question was asked in the previous year’s poll, as did the number who said their banker provides them with everything they need (up 10 points to 32 percent). For small businesses to optimize their relationship with their banker, they need to tell their story. Make a compelling case and back it up in both narrative and numbers. One mistake some small-business owners make is they start out undercapitalized and try to catch up on the lack of capital by taking on higher business or personal debt. This debt creates serious risk for the owner and the business the first time there is a slowdown in the economy. Just as problematic is growing too quickly and not recognizing the impact of how rapidly growing sales can affect cash flow. While an upward sales growth is a nice problem to have, without an effective cash management plan in place, it can lead to risk. Surprises are not fun when it comes to financials, so be sure to share the good, the bad and the downright ugly with your banker so that everything is out in the open and solutions can be found. See trouble on the horizon? Call early on so that arrangements tws can be made.

Heather McMahan of Winter Sun Ranch VALLEY TRAINER PROFILES BY MIA EDSALL
usiness name? Winter Sun Ranch Where do you train? Winter Sun Ranch Current home? Bellevue Were you raised around horses? Yup. My mom has always trained horses. Explain background and progression. I grew up riding and showing AQHA throughout the Northwest, and as a teenager I did a lot of trail riding locally. After college, my husband and I missed our community and roots and chose to move back to our hometown. We found our dream farm (horses for me, dirt for him), and started doing what we love. I started a 4-H club, where the kids ride weekly year-round. Additionally, I board up to 25 horses, train and give lessons to adults and kids. What do you offer? Lessons on your horse or mine, adults or kids of any age. Western and English. Training horses from green to polished. Specialty? Teaching kids and training green horses, but not in combination! Favorite horse? I donâ€™t have a favorite. I could never choose. Do you own horses; if so, how many? Yes, three: Jet, 15-
year-old Quarterhorse; Gypsy, 14-year-old Paint; and Drifter, 14-year-old Quarterhorse. Horses for sale? Nope. I am much better at buying horses than selling them! Favorite TV show? Not big into TV. Trucks? Yukon XL Diesel or gas? Gasâ€”18 mpg, optimistically. Family? Judd (husband), Austin (son), Galena (daughter). What kind of music do you like? The kids have sort of taken over the music choices in my household. Go, Caspar Babypants! Do you have pets? Yes: Bella, the Bernese mountain dog; Blackie, the â€œbarnâ€? cat that lives in the house; and three pygmy goats. Favorite food? Too hard to narrow it down to one thing. Books you are reading? Tina Fey-â€œBossypants.â€? Hobbies? dreamhorse.com Most embarrassing moment? Now why would I tell you that!? What are you working on today? Training my mare to be a better eventer/jumper. Training my lesson horse to accept vaulting. And, as always, trying to help my students become better riders and horse lovers. What training accomplish-
ment are you the most proud of? What makes me enjoy my job the most is when the kids that I teach really want to get better and will work really hard to achieve their goals. I love seeing a thoroughly exhausted, excited student. What would you do if you were not a horse trainer? Scientistâ€”biochemistry or genetics, most likelyâ€”although I would probably realize that spending my life in a laboratory is for the mice, so I would bail, move to Idaho and become a horse tws trainer!
Alpine Skiing and Lindsay Vonn, The American Champion Moritz. Europe is in a bitter winter lockdown. The race was run at -10 degrees F. Vonn beat her best friend and hometown favorite Maria Hoefl Reisch after losing to her in St. Moritz. The Swiss Nadja Kamer was second and Lichtensteinâ€™s Tina Weirather was third. Vonn is very popular in Germany because she speaks fluent German. She spends every Christmas break with Rieschâ€™s family. Vonn also won this race in front of her own family. Last year Vonn divorced her husband and trainer, Thomas Vonn, nine years her senior. The marriage strained relations with her family, which was repaired after the divorce. Sheâ€™s had a great year. She won in her hometown, at Beaver Creek, Colo., for the first time, and she wins here in Garmisch in front of her family. She is one of Americaâ€™s great champions. She should be the Go Daddy Girl. In equally frigid conditions in Chamonix, the Canadians warmed to the occasion. Jan Hudec won for the first time in four years, and Eric Guay finished third. Romed Baumann thought he had the win, but had to settle for second, .5 second off the pace. He was bewildered all weekend. Another Canadian, Benjamin Thomsen, was fifth. The top 10 was crowded with notables, like the Swiss Beat Fuez, and Austriaâ€™s

Kroell and Cuche. Bode Miller was eighth. In 2008, Hudec had a series of knee surgeries (five) and his career suffered. In this race, he overcame a late start (24th), and the flat light that came with it, to best the incredulous Baumann, whose split times were better on top. Hudec is known as a natural skier and a great glider, which was in evidence on this day. On Sunday, the seemingly jinxed Romed Baumann finally won a race and took the Super-Combined with a great downhill run that gave him a two-second advantage. Up-andcoming Frenchman Alexis Pinturault finished second after trailing by 3.5 seconds in the downhill portion, and Swiss Beat Fuez was third. Last but not least, back in Garmisch, Julia Mancuso got her first win Sunday, taking the Super-G, while Lindsay Vonn posted a rare DNF. It was the first time since 2006 that two American women won consecutive races, and then too, it was Vonn and Mancuso. Bitter cold, deep shadows and an icy course set fast, few turns. The emphasis was on speed and just keeping the skis steady. Anna Fenninger of Austria finally stepped on the podium. Tina Weirather was third. Many of the top names posted a DNF. tws

BY BALI SZABO In Chamonix, France, Thursdayâ€™s menâ€™s downhill was a makeup for Val Gardena. Klaus Kroell finally won a downhill for Austria this year on the La Verte des Houches course. Bode Miller was second, an agonizing .01 second behind. Didier Cuche was third. The top five finishers were only .08 second apart. Miller said that the easier, flatter courses always make for close finishes, as speed dominates over technicals. In Garmisch, Germany, Lindsay Vonnâ€™s good downhill training runs translated to her 50th career win on the rugged Kandahar course. Her first win was in Norway in â€˜06, and here she was, six years later, with 50. Only Austriaâ€™s Moser Proell (62) and the Swiss Vreni Schneider (52) have more. On the menâ€™s side, the Swede slalom specialist Ingemar Stenmark has a ridiculous 86, Austriaâ€™s Hermann â€˜The Hermannatorâ€™ Maier is at 54, and the great Italian Alberto Tomba stands at 50. Vonn feels she has several good years left, and she loves records. Most athletes deny they care about them. She is awed that sheâ€™s mentioned in the same company â€˜as the great Alberto Tomba.â€™ This run was an about-face from last weekâ€™s ideal conditions in St.

Ask the Guys
Dear Classified Guys, I looked up the value of my car on one of those Blue Book web sites, found the retail price and placed an ad in the newspaper. I even printed out the online report and posted it on the driver's window so people would see what the car is worth when they come to look. So far, the few people who have come for a test drive have laughed at my price. One guy even offered me almost $3000 below my asking price. I was insulted! My car is in relatively good shape, yet no one is interested. What am I doing wrong?
â€˘ â€˘ â€˘
Cash: If you were on "The Price
is Right," you'd probably never leave contestants row! It sounds like you've priced your car right out of the market. Carry: There are several issues that are obvious from your question. First, you described your car as being in "relatively good shape". Since you didn't say "brand new" or even "excellent" condition, it's likely your car does not warrant top dollar. Cash: Before you even decide on it's value, wash it, clean the windows and make sure everything is

in good working order. No one wants to test-drive a car that still has fast-food wrappers in the backseats. Carry: When you look up the blue book value of your car, remember that it's just a guide and needs to be adjusted based on your local market and your car's condition. Cash: A blue book typically gives you three values: trade, retail and private party. Trade and retail values are mostly used when working with dealerships. The third value, private party, is the one you should be using. Carry: Since you're selling the car privately, you shouldn't expect to ask "retail price" as you mentioned. Retail values are typically
found at a dealership given that they include presale inspections and other service warranties. People who shop privately expect to save on those costs. Using the average private party price would be more realistic. Cash: Most importantly though, avoid being insulted by anyone's offer. Although selling anything can be an emotional process, you need to remain objective. Buyers are simply trying to get the best deal and offer you what the car is worth to them. Regardless of their offer, it is not a reflection upon you personally. Carry: Besides, if you do your homework correctly, there will be more than enough great offers for you to accept.
Many people love their cars, but may not be impartial when it comes to determining their value. To obtain the market value of your car as designated by its age, mileage and wear and tear, visit one of the three most commonly used blue books online. Kelley Blue Book (www.kbb.com) and The National Automobile Dealers Association (www.nada.com) both began providing vehicle values in the 1920's. Edmunds' Blue Book (www.edmunds.com) began in 1966. All three provide new and used car values online free of charge.
Sometimes it can seem like everyone has a new car but you. However, according to data from the RITA (Research and Innovative Technology Administration), used car sales actually exceed new car sales. Although the data excludes private party sales, dealers alone sold over 36 million used cars in 2010 with an average sale price of around $9,000. New car sales topped off at less than 15 million vehicles. Although we may all like the new car smell, it seems that the price of a quality used car is just as sweet.
Reader Humor Name Sake
I'm not sure my wife realized the deal I would find when she asked if we could get a minivan. I searched for several weeks until I found one advertised at an amazing price. However, it had one small catch. When I went to look at the van, I realized that it still had the deli name printed on the side. The owner proudly offered, "You're more than welcome to leave the name. I'd love the advertising." "That's a nice offer," I thank him. "But I don't think my wife will drive a van that says, Chubby's!" (Thanks to Trevor J.)
