Primer on Urban Renewal Areas









daho’s legislature will soon be revisiting the concept of Urban Renewal Areas, or URAs, to consider whether the state’s existby: JIMA ing URA law Rice, Ph.D. should be limited or perhaps even repealed. The central assertion by URA critics in the legislature, as reported in the Idaho Statesman, is that “the 45-year-old redevelopment law has been abused for purposes beyond improving blighted areas.� What the legislature decides could affect the Wood River Valley since Ketchum has an Urban Renewal Area while Hailey is thinking of designating one. Below is some basic information about URAs for local citizens to understand as we go forward. What is a URA? Idaho state law allows a city’s governing officials to designate deteriorated or deteriorating areas in their jurisdiction as urban renewal areas. Once designated, the area becomes a focus for economic development. A URA managing agency is appointed by local government and a master development plan created and implemented that is consonant with the city’s codes and ordinances. The concept comes from post-WWII efforts to clear urban slums but has since been enlarged to accommodate less drastic situations. The URA designation lasts for 24 years. During that time, the city can use what is called “tax increment financing,� or TIF, a mechanism explicitly designed to fund urban renewal. What is TIF? Once a URA is designated, the county assessor establishes the “base� property value for the entire URA property. As development occurs, the URA’s property values (and taxes) increase. The difference between the base year’s taxes and each subsequent year’s taxes goes into a fund for further development within the URA. This fund is made up, essentially, of tax monies that would otherwise have gone over the URA’s lifetime to other taxing districts in the city and county, as well as the school district. How can TIF be used? TIF monies are used to acquire land; construct, remove, or renovate buildings so as to benefit the local economy; stimulate job and business growth; improve safety and sanitation; and provide for public parking and public amenities, such as parks. They are also used for infrastructure improvements, such as streets, water, and sewage, that complement the private development of affordable housing, and office, retail, and commercial buildings. This helps to reduce the cost to businesses of relocating or

Ski run name reminiscent of Castle Rock wildfire By KAREN BOSSICK


he new ski run created in the aftermath of the Castle Rock Fire finally has a name. You won’t find it on any map. But Sun Valley’s ambassador, Marc Cormey, said that the ski patrol paired the blackened trees that still remain along the side of the run with nearby lift tower 21 to call the run “Blackjack.” Of course, other skiers have their own names for it. Sun Valley snowboarder Sondra Van Ert, for instance, thinks it should be called “Hotshot” in honor of the firefighters who risked their lives to save Seattle Ridge and the rest of Bald Mountain in the 2007 wildfire. The run angles down from Lift Line under the Challenger chair. twp

On another occasion he and pianist Peter Henderson romped through their piece, an impish grin on their faces and gleams in their expressive eyes as if they were playing something for a Keystone Kop movie. “Stellar performance,” pronounced Joann Boswell as the audience retreated to the foyer for stuffed mushrooms, luscious red velvet cupcakes and other hors d’oeuvres donated by Cristina’s, Perry’s and other restaurants.

t 41, Ben Hong is no longer the 24-year-old kid he was when he became the youngest musician to join the Los Angeles Philharmonic. But the Taiwan native hasn’t lost the youthful enthusiasm that matches his fresh-scrubbed face. Hong took obvious delight Saturday night in making the strings of his cello sing as he performed classics by Haydn, Schubert, Debussy and Beethoven for the Sun Valley Artist Series. Hong told the audience how he had played Haydn’s “Divertimento in D Major” at age 13. “Each time I play it it’s like visiting an old friend that I’m getting to know better,” he added. At times, it seemed as if Hong had his cello in a Valentine’s embrace—a man in love with his instrument and the smooth,

Wednesday 2.16.11 ahead............from pg 1 expanding. What impacts have been made by URAs? Projects have ranged across rehabilitation, reconstruction, and replacement of aging public buildings; infrastructure development to accommodate industrial and business expansion; extension of electrical and telecommunications lines to support development; the installation of parks, biking and walking paths; and enhanced urban streetscapes. A good local example of this would be the aesthetic improvements to downtown Ketchum that were designed to increase its vitality under the banner of the URA. In the future, URAs will come under increasing scrutiny and must therefore be properly established and managed. Advocates praise URAs for the successful instances in which they have resuscitated deteriorating or unsafe urban areas by attracting businesses, increasing property values, and facilitating longterm growth of a community’s local tax base. Critics contend that URAs diminish income to other taxing districts, and do so over a long period of time. They claim that the managing agencies do not have proper oversight and point to public-private partnerships that have stretched URA laws beyond their original intent in order to benefit private interests. Part II of “A Primer on Urban Renewal Districts” will address our local situation more specifically and pose questions relevant to evaluating the impact and implications of URA designations. Until then, if you have questions about URAs, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me. I’ll answer them as best I can or point you to helpful resources. twp Jima Rice is president of Jigsaw, Inc.To recieve Jigsaw’s free weekly e-letter, please contact Jima at

oor Jennifer Aniston. Despite being beautiful, talented and extremely popular, her recent picks of films to star in have left a lot to be desired. And in Hollywood, eventually, the chances drop to a precious few and then you’re out of the game. Whether or not she is close to this fate remains unknown, but despite her best efforts, the new film Just Go With It clearly doesn’t pull her out of her slump. Essentially an Adam Sandler vehicle, the movie has charm, but it also has some real predictability issues as a romantic comedy. Based on Neil

movie review

This week’s Horoscopes: celebrate friends, new ideas, future It’s the last week of Aquarius and a time to celebrate the friends you’ve made, the new ideas you’ve bounced around and the excitement you’ve felt about creating a future that’s not only great for you, but for the world at large. Mercury and Saturn will align to support the healing of relationships and to promote levity and optimism -- a cosmic Valentine’s Day gift. Friday, the sun enters soulful, intuitive Pisces. ARIES (March 21-April 19). One way to make sure you have an excellent reputation is to tell people what to say about you. Give some thought as to how you’d like to be perceived, and work on promoting this aspect of yourself in all of your dealings this week. Wednesday brings an astounding breakthrough or sale. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will become happier and more efficient this week simply because you question the purposefulness of your own actions. By asking “What is the purpose of this?” you become mindful of the bottom line. You will line up your efforts in a way that is highly satisfying on many levels. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Beware of bored people who either have not yet learned to engage in life, or who are for some reason cutting themselves off from the fascinating reality that is all around us. You can still have

compassion for the uninspired, but keep your distance, as the numbness of boredom is contagious. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Children want what they want without thinking about whether they have earned it. In your mature state of mind, you put first things first. It’s more important that you become who you want to be than that you get the prize when you want it. It will be easy for you to get the prize when you’ve earned it. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Something you wanted suddenly doesn’t seem like that great of an idea. Perhaps you realize the work involved and no longer think the end result is worth it. Since your imagination is so strong this week, it’s the perfect time to brainstorm on the topic of what to pursue instead. Your new ideas will be much better. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Sometimes your imagination is too active, as it dreams up scenarios that are neither pleasant nor true. This week you continue to learn how to separate yourself from troublesome thought processes and embrace helpful patterns. You will realize that what goes on in your mind doesn’t always reflect who you really are. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll feel as though you are coming into your own -- you are! You still need help, though, and the road won’t be perfectly smooth. Loved ones will go out of their way to assist you, partly because you are warm, open and appreciative every time they do. On Thursday, you’ll find new things and people to like. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your reputation is very important to you, and this week you build it by being loyal. It is easy for you to make decisions, because most of the time you are engaged in the act of fulfilling commitments you’ve already made. Your high level of responsibility makes everything simple and brings you fantastic luck, too.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are an expert, a leader and an adviser. This week you will spend many hours helping others, and with every interaction, you hone your skills. You may have to psych yourself up to get interested in attending Friday’s events, but definitely go. Financial and personal opportunities await. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You may not walk around with a perpetual smile on your face, but there’s still a happy mood emanating from you this week. That’s why people you don’t know will come up and introduce themselves. On Tuesday, new associations will bring you luck, especially fellow earth signs, Taurus and Virgo. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s something you want out of a situation, but you’re not quite ready to make your sales pitch. Your instinct to wait is smart. You’ll succeed when you make meeting people and getting to know them your No. 1 priority. Tuesday brings a personal triumph. You’ll need plenty of rest over the weekend. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). This week a door opens and you walk in. You may feel uncomfortable at first as you step into a new territory, but this changes as you learn what to expect and what is expected of you. Prevent yourself from becoming overwhelmed, and you’ll do great. Remind yourself often: There is power in small steps. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: Your people skills are remarkable. You’ll attract partners in friendship, business and love. Through the next 10 weeks, you’ll home in on your strengths and attain even more charm and influence. March brings memorable happy events with loved ones. June presents a solid investment opportunity. You’ll work hard through September to complete an important goal. You may be reticent to travel due to the expense involved, but if you go in October, you’ll have the trip of a lifetime. twp

briefs Winter Feast for the Soul holds closing ceremonies next Wednesday in Ketchum The 2011 Winter Feast for the Soul concludes locally with a closing ceremony and meditation on Wednesday evening, Feb. 23. The ceremonies will begin at 6:30 p.m. at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Sun Valley. Participants are invited to arrive early at 5:30 p.m. for St. Thomas’ Taize service or to walk the outdoor labyrinth, which will be illuminated. Doors to the sanctuary will be closed between 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. for the Taize service. R. L. Rowsey and the En Chante girls’ choir from Wood River High School will provide the music for the closing ceremony.

Founded in 2008 by Hailey resident Valerie Skonie, the Winter Feast for the Soul has expanded from the Wood River Valley into a worldwide event. It honors all faiths and spiritual paths and supports participants in committing to a 40-day spiritual practice of meditation. All are welcome. It is not necessary to have participated in any of the daily meditations that have been offered around the Valley. Local coordinator Rosemary Cody says, “The closing ceremony is not really about ending. It’s about beginnings, too.” For further information call 7207530 or 539-3771.

he big kids had their turn with the Boulder Mountain Tour. Now it’s time for the little kids to ski as hard and fast as they can in the sixth annual Quigley Cup. The free races for children 13 and under will start at 11 a.m. Saturday at Quigley Nordic at the end of Fox Acres Road in Hailey. Registration will be held from 10 to 10:30 a.m. The Papoose Club started the Quigley Cup as a Nordic

counterpart to its Kindercup on Dollar Mountain, which it founded in the 1950s. The event targets the burgeoning interest of youngsters in Nordic skiing— there are about 40 youngsters on the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Nordic team and another 20 on a weekly program started by the Blaine County Recreation District. The Quigley Cup, however, is open to all youngsters, regardless of whether they participate in a formal program. “The kids love it,” said Tizz Miller. “Mike Sinnott led the

briefs Horton offers metal clay jewelry classes COURTESY PHOTO IN 2/9 FOLDER Lisa Horton announces a slate of jewelry classes during late winter and spring, utilizing a versatile medium known as metal clay. Horton is a certified metal clay instructor with over six years’ experience working with the clays. Metal clays are manufactured by suspending fine metal particles in a non-toxic medium. This clay-like material is easily sculpted, textured, molded and carved. After the binder medium burns off, solid silver or bronze pieces emerge from the kiln. The classes offered for February, March, April and May include half-day silver “appeteaser” classes on Feb. 22 and April 2 for those who want just a taste of metal clay. The techniques taught in this class utilize household implements and a kitchen-style torch.

The story of this resilient community and how they worked with the leaders of their new homeland to relocate 1,700 islanders has been captured in “Sun Comes Up,” which was recently nominated for an Oscar in the short-film category. And it will be one of the films shown in this weekend’s Fourth Annual Family of Women Film Festival at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Climate change—and how people around the world are reacting to it—is one of the underlying themes of this year’s festival, starting with a lecture by a Worldwatch Institute vice president on Thursday night and running through films like “Sun Come Up,” “Sisters on the Planet” and “Climate Refugees,” all of which will be shown on Saturday. “Ultimately, the entire world will be affected, but the Third World more than the rest,” said festival founder Peggy Goldwyn. “And the women will be on the frontlines. The women will bear the brunt of climate change, fetching water and cooking meals, just as they do in times of war.” The festival also opens a window onto the world of women in Islam. Friday’s film, “Voices Unveiled: Turkish Women Who Dare,” depicts Muslim women who have one foot in the West and one foot in the East. “The women from the Muslim world are not monolithic or all alike. This film features women with modern views of the world, wanting everything to work together harmoniously. It’s a wellmade film and it depicts women I’d like to know,” said Goldwyn. Indeed, Turkey is a country where honor kills—the practice of murdering women for such indiscretions as extramarital sex—are still practiced, even as other women pursue careers as CEOs of corporations or ballroom dancers, pointed out filmmaker Binnur Karaevli. “Turkey differs vastly from other Middle Eastern countries concerning gender equality,” she said. “It’s a country curiously positioned at the juncture of modernism and traditional religious-based values. Some women dress like their counterparts in the West while others cover up with religious garb. Some hold CEO titles of large corporations while others need permission to

go outside of their houses. “Growing up in an educated and liberal family, I was provided with a great education and encouraged to pursue a career by my family. However, I still felt society’s pressures in how I should behave and act as a woman. ‘What would the neighbors think?’ is a common worry for a lot of Turkish women.” Sunday will feature “Divorce: Iranian Style,” which offers a look at women arguing with a judge in Iranian court. Also, “Pink Saris,” which won awards at European film festivals for its very personal story about one woman who works with untouchables forced into unhappy arranged marriages. Filmmakers and experts will be present at a few of the films to lead post-film discussions. This is the only festival in the nation that deals entirely with women’s issues around the world, said Goldwyn, who was inspired to put it together by her work with the United Nationals

Population Fund which advocates for women’s health and human rights. Goldwyn said it’s possible because of the unique makeup of this community: “People in this town are so international in their outlook, so well-traveled. The festival is growing as more people become aware about it and we’re getting some great support from the Amnesty International Club at Wood River High School and the Community Service Club at The twp Community School.”

T Green hygiene for women Fertile women make up 61 percent of the female population. With a world population nearing 6.9 billion, if only 15 percent of the world is “highly developed” and has the luxury of sanitary options, that’s over a HUNDRED BILLION discarded sanitary pads or tampons per year. The average maxi-pad or tampon is chlorine bleached, which releases toxins into the environment when made, and can leave residuals in your body. Gross. No one wants toxins in their bodies. Once the dioxins are stored in the fat cells, they never, ever go away. And yes, they are carcinogenic. Maxi-pads are also being made with plastics… enough said! Luckily, there are products cheaper and better for you.

NatraCare and Seventh Generation have environmentally and health-friendly alternatives, with prices equivalent to O.B. and Kotex, or less. You can go old school with the “GladRag” reusable pad. There’s also something awesome called the “Moon Cup” or “The Keeper,” which is a Latex or silicone reusable insert costing about $30, but that can last you 10 years! My friends swear by them. They are convenient, and don’t cause toxic shock syndrome. NatraCare and similar products are available at Atkinsons’ Markets. Fight to get these healthier products more available. Guys, make sure your wives, girlfriends and sisters know this! Go to,, for more information, call ERC 726-4333.

Connections and peers NAMI’s Peer to Peer and Connections programs By KAREN BOSSICK


free Peer-to-Peer program for those suffering from mental illness will start up again Wednesday, Feb. 23. And participants are reminded they can also take advantage of a new program called Connections. The National Alliance on Mental Illness—also known as NAMI-Wood River Valley—will offer its award-winning 10-week Peer-to-Peer class from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays at 616 S. Main St. in Hailey beginning Feb. 23. The class will educate participants about the nature of such conditions as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. And it will offer suggestions for different types of treatments, coping skills and recovery plans that can help people work towards recovery and maintain wellness. The class and its materials are funded by the Hearts of Gold Fund through the Idaho Community Foundation. “Mental illness is a physical disorder of the brain, caused by the neurotransmitters in the brain not functioning properly. It’s estimated 52 percent of all Americans will suffer some form of mental illness at some time in their life,” said Wendy Norbom, one of the facilitators. “But we help them with tools they can use to get well. Many people don’t realize that recovery is involved. Mental illness is a cataclysmic diagnosis but people

can recover from it, just like anything else. Unfortunately, some people try to self-medicate themselves with alcohol or drugs.” Connections is a confidential program held for graduates of the Peer-to-Peer Program. Started in September, it is held Monday evenings at St. Luke’s. “It’s not therapy but it’s therapeutic with people being empowered by a shared common experience. Whereas Peer-toPeer is more of a teaching format, Connections is more like a support group for people to share what’s going on in their lives,” said Norbom. “Maybe a person’s medications have changed and they’re not coping well with it. Or maybe someone wants some suggestions for how to deal with co-workers who don’t understand them. Or maybe something happened at home and they need ideas for how to deal with it.” To enroll in either program, call Wendy at 208-309-1987. twp

Gallery walk includes glass and bronze birds By KAREN BOSSICK


or years Seattle artists Joey Kirkpatrick and Flora C. Mace doted on monumental glass fruit and vegetables. Then the two women—teachers at the legendary Pilchuck Glass School for 14 years—got turned onto bird watching. To teach Mace how to identify birds, Kirkpatrick began sketching field guides. Now that’s turned into a body of work that features birds in glass. That includes glass “Bird Pages” and sketches of birds outlined with “twigs” that are actually made of glass and colored with a bronze patina made especially for their work. Art lovers will be able to see examples of this work at Friesen Gallery, 320 1st Ave., N., during Friday’s Gallery Walk. The free Gallery Walk takes place from 5 to 8 p.m. at more than a dozen galleries. “It is an absolute honor to have their work here,” said Friesen Gallery Owner Andria Friesen. “These two women are recognized as pioneers in the studio glass movement. And their cast panels with illustrations of the ‘first facts’ of bird identification through glass dust drawings are beautiful.” In addition to the bird art, gallery hoppers will be able to see wall upon wall of Michael Gregory’s oil paintings of crumbling barns and silos at Gail Severn Gallery, 400 1st Ave. N. Michael Gregory is a longtime exhibitor at Gail Severn Gallery. But his new works feature bolder colors and his black and white paintings are bigger than ever. Some of the pieces in the show

are as big as 72 inches by 60 inches. The exhibition at Gail Severn is being done in conjunction with a show of Gregory’s work at the Fort Collins Museum of Art in Colorado. Gregory will discuss his work during a free Artist Chat at 10 a.m. Saturday at Gail Severn Gallery. “Michael has always focused on barns and houses in Idaho, Wyoming, Montana and other parts of the West that are destined to be torn down. These are what he feels are icons indigenous to the West that are being lost,” said Gallery Owner Gail Severn. Just down the road, Gallery DeNovo Owner Robin Reiners is waxing eloquent about the colorful works of Canadian Master Yehouda Chaki who turns the jagged mountains surrounding the Toba River in British Columbia into cubist-like emeralds of mountains that color the walls of her gallery at 320 1st Ave N. Chaki, who was born in Greece, raised in Tel Aviv and taught to paint in Paris, now lives in Montreal and is considered one of Canada’s top 100 artists--living or dead. At the age of 85, he continues to paint every day to share his vision of a world untouched by homes or telephone poles. He had to travel by helicopter to reach the site of his “Toba River” work. “His mountains remind me of the Na Pali Coast in Hawaii. To someone else they might resemble the Sawtooth Mountains here in Idaho,” said Reiners. Here’s what else you can see: Frederic Boloix, 320 1st Ave. N.—Works of Masters like Picasso.

Sense and sensibility, the native landscape By BALI SZABO


ast Wednesday evening, Kelly Weston of Native Landscapes did a presentation on xeriscapes at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden. The audience was primarily homeowners. Kelley founded the SBG in 1993, which since has become an invaluable Valley resource. It not only offers programs on the natural world, but addresses the interface between it and the human world. This talk was a perfect example of that. On display were the many properties whose landscapes were installed by Native Landscapes. The approach to each property varied by its exposure and terrain. Even a smaller property could have several different co-existing ecosystems, or ecotones; for example, some lawn, a rock garden, a wet or shaded area and exposed sagebrush steppe, rocks, shrubs, trees, grasses and flowers, each with its own water needs. The goal was overall low-water use and low maintenance and a de-

sign that, as the years went by, let nature take over. Kelley’s talk began by showing a topo of the Wood River watershed. John Wesley Powell advocated for human settlement that was in sustainable accordance with the scarce water. That was ignored, and we went with the rectangular grid plan, superimposed on the landscape, and this now has to be artificially maintained. By doing so, we’re poisoning the river and draining our own water reserves. This is a zero-sum game. We’ve become like the poor man counting his money. This time of year, we measure our snowpack. In an era of accelerating climate change and extremes, we’ve become suppliants to circumstance, a low-pressure trough, to bail us out of a long-term problem. Switching to low-water designs not only will make our many animals happier, it’ll buy us time and help preserve what Kelley called ‘the last pristine temperate wilderness left in the U.S.’ A paradise taken for granted is a paradise lost. twp

The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley has purchased 17 acres from the federal Bureau of Land Management in Vorberg Gulch, directly west of the current shelter location on Croy Creek Road. After 29 years of operation in the current building, the shelter is overdue for additional space and improved facilities, said Jan Main, president of the board of directors. Without expanding and upgrading the building, the non-profit organization, the first “nokill shelter” in Idaho, could be forced to decrease its level of service to the community, Main said. Now, the board will begin to consider the possibilities and timeline for a new facility. Executive Director Jo-Anne Dixon

said, “Our goal will be to create a healthy and efficient building for the temporary care and housing of animals, a state-of-the-art medical facility for our spay/neuter clinics and medical services, comfortable visiting rooms for families to get acquainted with potential new pets, and more.” Dixon cautions that a feasibility study and thorough planning process will need to be completed before any concrete plans are presented to the community. However, she welcomes input on what an ideal shelter would look like for the Wood River Valley. Suggestions may be sent to Development & Communications Director Brooke Bonner at

Ask the Guys Dear Classified Guys, I thought changing jobs meant getting better benefits. I had a great interview and received a job offer yesterday. Good job, great pay, but the vacation time is not what I expected. I had worked up to four weeks at my old job, but this company claims two weeks is the standard for new employees. I really like to travel with my family, but this loss of two weeks vacation could cramp our style. Do you have any bright ideas on how to get more vacation time from this job offer?

Cash: You've brought up

a problem that we hear from a lot of people. Seasoned employees have a tough time changing jobs and accepting smaller vacation packages. It's difficult to give up a few weeks of traveling. Carry: Now me, I rarely get to travel on vacation. My time off is spent fixing things around the house. My wife has a whole honey-do list just waiting for my next vacation. Cash: If you would stop breaking things, you might be able to spend your vacation doing something else.

Fast Facts Give Me a Break

Duane “Cash” Holze & Todd “Carry” Holze 02/13/11 ©The Classified Guys®

Carry: That's what my wife keeps telling me too! Cash: It's odd that so many people complain about vacation time. The average American fails to take about two vacation days every year. Nationwide, that adds up to more than 19 billion dollars of unused time. That's a lot of time off. Carry: Since you're now in the negotiating stage of your job offer, there is an opportunity to bargain for more vacation time. However, your chances will depend mostly on how valuable the company sees you for the position. Cash: Management type positions tend to have some leeway in the vacation policy. Entry level or mid-range positions have less

opportunity to negotiate time off. Companies try to maintain a standard vacation policy to prevent animosity among the employees. Carry: If there is no way to negotiate more paid vacation, ask for an unpaid leave-of-absence. Since this new job pays better than your old one, a week or two of unpaid time could be a good compromise. Cash: Also ask about working overtime in exchange for some days of compensation time. Depending on the position, some companies are willing to work with flexible schedules. Carry: If all else fails, look at it this way. Counting Saturdays and Sundays, we all have over 100 days off each year.

Vacation time averages between two to three weeks in the U.S., depending on your length of service. That may not seem too bad, until you compare it with other countries. For example, in Holland, workers get 31 days of paid vacation every year. France and Belgium employees receive five weeks or more and Australians are typically out on holiday for a month or longer. Surprisingly, the only country to average fewer vacation days than the U.S. is Mexico where workers receive six days vacation after the first year of employment.

Take a Break

Have you ever taken a day off and then returned to work the following morning only to feel like you never left. You're not alone. In order for your mind and body to get a true break from the work environment, it's important to take three to five consecutive days away from the office. Turn off your cell phone or tell your boss you are unreachable. That time is typically enough for your body to unwind and rejuvenate. Of course, take enough time off and you might even forget your boss's name! •

Reader Humor Telecommuting

As the president of a small, but progressive company, I understand that the workplace is changing. That's why when several employees asked if they could work from home, I decided to meet their needs. We gave computers to several homebased workers and equipped each PC with net-meeting software. Their only timely obligation was to log into our meeting every morning at 9:00 am to discuss the day's objectives. It’s been working great, but one of my employees periodically logs in 10 to 15 minutes late. During one morning meeting, I decided to confront him and typed, "Why are you late today?" To my surprise he typed back, "Sorry boss, I was caught in web traffic!" (Thanks to Dominick D.)
