Fundraising Concert for Music Students

The B-Tones, a young men’s vocal ensemble developed through a partnership with the Sun Valley Summer Symphony School of Music and the Wood River High School Choral Department, is hosting a special concert at 5:30 p.m. this Sunday, March 4 at Light on the Mountains Spiritual Center, to raise money for their upcoming trip to the Heritage Music Festival in Anaheim, Calif. The students, along with their director, R.L. Rowsey, will return to Anaheim with hopes of repeating their celebrated performance in 2011 when they were part of the vocal and instrumental ensembles that brought home all of the big trophies from the competition. This trip requires a significant financial commitment from the students. To help offset the cost of the trip, the group is presenting an hour-long concert at Light on the Mountains Spiritual Center with their special guests, the Valley’s newest men’s vocal ensemble, A Few Good Men. This outstanding young vocal ensemble will perform a series of songs, including a great arrangement of “Over the Rainbow,” on which they will join forces with A Few Good Men. A Few Good Men will also share some of the work they are preparing for their spring concert. Songs from the B-Tones include a rousing anthem, Come Travel With Me; a Broadway ballad, Tell My Father; and a James Taylor favorite, Fire and Rain. Donations will be gratefully received at the door. Parking is limited, so please consider carpooling. “This is such a powerful experience for these young men. We really appreciate the community’s support of all the work that goes on in the arts for our students,” says director R.L. Rowsey.

eggy Goldwyn knew she had no choice as images of protestors pouring into Tahrir Square flickered across her TV screen. She was going to have to find some Arab films for her Fifth Annual Family of Women Film Festival. “Everybody was so interested in what was happening and wondering how women were affected, I knew we had to have films from that area,” said the Ketchum resident, who immediately went to work contacting everyone she knew to see if anyone knew of any Arab film festivals. Securing those films would prove more adventuresome than trotting down to the nearest video rental store. It’s not that Arabs don’t make films—Cairo is the Bollywood of the Middle East. But Goldwyn soon learned that it is illegal to send DVDs out of Egypt. Her son Peter, a motion picture producer and distributor, found her a much-copied DVD of a film called “Cairo 6.7.8” at the Cannes Film Festival and Market. But, Goldwyn surmised, the film about three women who take charge of their lives in the face of sexual harassment had probably been smuggled out of Egypt in someone’s suitcase because securing a clean copy from Egypt was impossible. Goldwyn did finally arrange to get a copy from a distributor in Amsterdam. As a result, “Cairo 6.7.8” will be one of five films shown at this year’s Family of Women Film Festival, which will be held Friday through Monday in Ketchum. The festival will also feature “Saving Face,” which won an Oscar for Best Documentary at the Academy Awards on Sunday. That film’s filmmaker—two-time Academy Award nominee Daniel Junge—will present the film and answer questions about it. He will be accompanied by Dr. Mohammad Jawad, whose work with Pakistani women who have had acid thrown onto their faces is the focus of the film. Dr. Babtunde Osomitehin, executive director of UNFPA and undersecretary general of the United Nations, will introduce Saturday’s films. And Egyptian feminist and advisor Shrin Saadallah will cap the film festival with a free presentation on “The Women of Arab Spring” at 6 p.m. Monday at The Community Library in Ketchum. Goldwyn said once she saw “Cairo 6.7.8,” which is named after a Cairo bus route, she knew she had to have it. “This film is exceptional—I watched three or four others and they were pale compared to this. One of the episodes takes place in Tahrir Square. And it’s very funny at times, particularly when the men of Cairo become panicked at the thought that women vigilantes are taking revenge on the gropers on buses.” Goldwyn had an easier time securing another film, “Box With Her,” a Tunisian film that focuses on Muslim women who are training to be Olympic boxers. She was able to contact the directors directly. But they spoke only French so she had to e-mail them using the French she knew with help from French teacher Calysta Phillips. “We ended up becoming Skype buddies,” Goldwyn said. “Even after the uprising in Tunisia the film got to me, which shows that the post office in Tunisia works and there’s no censorship. And I feel as if I know everybody to contact if I ever want to show an Arab film again.” Goldwyn, who is co-chairing this year’s festival with photographer Stephanie Freid-Perenchio, started the festival five years ago to bring attention to the lives of women in the countries where the United Nations Population Fund works. UNFPA provides women’s health care, AIDS prevention and treatment and promotes the rights of women in more than 150 countries. Goldwyn, who at one time was married to movie mogul Samuel Goldwyn Jr. and has written and produced numer-

ous TV and film projects, got involved with UNFPA after she became friends of Kofi Annan. He asked Goldwyn to produce a documentary highlighting a new refugee education fund that established scholarships for students who had had to drop their studies when fleeing to refugee camps. “Seventeen million people in the world have been displaced and can’t get back home. Many of these kids turn to crime or prostitution because there’s no hope,” Goldwyn said. Hooked, Goldwyn tried showing a film about genital cutting in Los Angeles where she served on the board of Los Angeles Planned Parenthood. But she learned it was difficult to get people enthused in a big city. However, she saw the opposite occur here when the Sun Valley Center for the Arts brought in a speaker and film focusing on the human tragedy in Darfur. She was also encouraged when she saw a local book club make a donation to UNPFA for its fistula campaign after reading Abraham Verghese’s “Cutting for Stone.” “I said, ‘Wow! This whole town is mobilized. Why not bring films here to promote what UNPFA is doing,’” she recounted. One of Goldwyn’s biggest hurdles has been the perception by some that the films are too depressing. Some, such as “The Price of Sex,” do deal with tough subjects, she noted. But “Pray the Devil Back to Hell,” conversely, heralded the success of Liberia

Slopes Stay Busy with Brotherhood STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


undreds of black skiers from as far away as Atlanta and Tampa Bay are taking to Sun Valley’s slopes this week. They’re giving the town a touch of soul, raising the rafters of the Sun Valley Opera House with a Sunday morning gospel fest and raising the noise level at Ketchum Town Plaza as they groove to “The Wobble” line dance. And they’re imbuing the slopes of Dollar and Bald mountains with a little color, thanks to jackets that sport colorful insignias of their ski clubs, from the Texas Ski Rangers of Fort Worth/Dallas, to the Ebony and Ice ski club of Milwaukee, to the Jim Dandy skiers from Detroit. About 500 members of the National Brotherhood of Skiers— the nation’s largest organization of black skiers and snowboarders—have hit the slopes for eight days of skiing. And they’ve probably brought with them another 500 family members and friends, said Lawanda Joseph, of Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. “We bring a little more swag, a little more attitude, a little color to the slopes,” joked Joseph Menyah, who works for Home Depot in Atlanta, Ga. “We’ve got Motown in our earbuds and we party hearty!” The NBS was founded nearly 40 years ago by Art Clay of Chicago and Ben Finley of Los Angeles at a time when it was rare to see African -Americans on the ski slopes. They brought together 350 skiers from 13 black ski clubs for a Black Summit at Aspen in 1973. Today, the NBS is comprised of 60 ski clubs with 3,000 members nationwide, making it one of the largest ski organizations in the world and its summit the largest gathering of skiers and riders in the United States. Sun Valley ski instructor Rod Tatsuno wore a black ski patch from the first summit the NBS held in Sun Valley in 1975 as he chatted with the skiers on Sunday. The organization held a second summit here in 1998. Joseph said the Sun Valley “mini-summit” is one of the organization’s smaller events because Sun Valley doesn’t have enough hotel rooms to accommodate the larger summits, which can attract as many as 3,200 people. Lisa Taylor, who grew up in snowless New Orleans and now lives in Houston, said she was enticed to get involved in the organization by a TV clip.

“We hang out and party. People come from all over and it’s like a big family that gets together two to three times a year,” she said. That camaraderie is one of the big reasons NBS is so successful, said Schone Malliet, who oversees the organization’s efforts to increase participation in winter sports among AfricanAmericans. “Ski resorts retain only 12 percent of those who try skiing or snowboarding. But for every hundred skiers we introduce to the sport, we retain 75,” he said. “We’re able to do that because we build community around the sport. We provide our skiers with an opportunity to commune around the sport.” It’s important to introduce as many people as possible to winter sports, no matter what their color or background, because of its physical, mental and other benefits, Malliet added. The organization also has been trying to place a black skier on the U.S. Ski Team since its inception. One of the skiers it’s supported won four medals at the 1984 Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria. More recently, NBS member Ralph Green competed in the Paralympics in Torino, Italy, and Vancouver, B.C. And another NBS member competed with the Jamaican Ski Team at the Vancouver Olympics. Tony Bell, of Milwaukee, Wis., said he has visited ski resorts in Colorado, Utah and Canada with the Brotherhood. And NBS members can also take advantage of ski trips to places like Switzerland. Bell gestured toward the snow-capped peaks that surround Sun Valley. “You can’t explain that to someone when they ask us what we did on our ski vacation. You have to see it for yourself,” he said. “One time we skied a mountain so high the clouds were below us. It took our breath away.” “Because skiing is a non-traditional activity, it introduces people to things they haven’t seen before. It inspires them to try other things,” said Todd Hood, of Pasadena, Calif. “The first time I tried skiing, all I could think of was how I didn’t want to sit down on the ride back because I hurt so bad. Then all I could think of was: When can we go again!? It was so much fun.” The NBS has a full slate of activities through Friday, including a pub crawl, snowshoe hike, avalanche seminar, special art gallery tour, poker run shopping spree and a chocolate affair.

There are also a host of parties, including one featuring a musical tribute to Don Cornelius and Soul Train. Guests are expected to spend more than a half-million dollars in the area during their visit. Sun Valley lift ticket checker Don Riddle said he was excited to have the skiers return to Sun Valley. “They’re so much fun, and they really liven up the bars,” he said. tws

ean Covey cupped his hand to his ear. “Seek first to understand, then to be understood,� he told more than 400 students, teachers and parents packed into the Hemingway Elementary School gymnasium. The children needed no introduction. They’ve been engaged in learning that principle since their school became one of Covey’s “Leader in Me� schools in September. The model, which has its roots in Steven R. Covey’s best-selling book, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,� written by Sean’s father, is designed to help students become more responsible, well-rounded citizens who can better succeed in a fastchanging 21st century. Thursday’s assembly was an opportunity for the students to meet the man behind the Leader-in-Me program. Opening with small talk, Covey told the students that it was awesome to be in a school named after Ernest Hemingway, who had been one of his favorite authors. He added that his wife Becky Thatcher was from Rexburg, Idaho, “so I love this state.� Then he got down to the business he’d come for. Covey told the students that the Leader-in-Me principles are like gravity in that they can work anywhere, whether it be Japan or Brazil. “By leadership, we don’t mean you’re going to be the next President, even though one of you might be. We mean you can be a leader in your family, among your friends,� said Covey, who also attended Seven Habits assemblies at Bellevue and Woodside elementary schools on Thursday. Covey watched as Kate Stone and other students performed “Turkish Rondo� on electronic bells. He listened as Claire Fisher, Owen Ruggeri, Noelle Weaver and Jake Albright, dressed up like Coco Chanel,

We have two ears and only one mouth and we should use them accordingly, said Sean Covey as he cupped his hand to his ear to symbolize the habit of seeking first to understand, then to be understood.

Dr. Seuss, Kristi Yamaguchi and Duke University basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, listed the principles they’d relied on to succeed. And he taught the students hand signals that he said would help them always remember the Seven Habits. In one instance, for example, he waved his hands through the air to represent the synergy of a flying flock of geese. The lead goose breaks air resistance so the other geese can fly more easily, he said. The geese can fly 71 percent farther by working together. To illustrate the principle of win-win, Covey described a scenario in which two people were running from a bear. “One of them tells the other, ‘I don’t have to run faster than the bear—I just have to run faster than you,’� he said. “That’s not a win-win.� Other habits, he reminded students, included putting first things first and sharpening the saw—that is, taking the time to sharpen your saw before you start sawing to make the job easier. “I honor what you’re doing here. This is important,� he told the students and teachers. “The challenge was not trying to find 50 leaders to come up here and make this presentation,� Hemingway Principal Don Haisley told Covey. “The chal-

Claire Fisher portrayed Coco Chanel.

lenge was how to pick 50 out of 400 leaders.� Covey said, following the assembly, that the Blaine County School District is unique as the only school district using the Seven Habits curriculum in each of its elementary schools. It is also the only school district in Idaho using the curriculum. “The superintendent had a vision for this, so there’s a lot of energy,� Covey added. “The principals, teachers and students are doing the same thing. They’re speaking a common language.� About 300 schools worldwide were utilizing the curriculum when Carey and Hailey elementary schools began testing it as a pilot program last year, noted John Blackman, the school district’s assistant superintendent. A year later, it’s in more than 700 schools. “We see evidence of our kids using it all the time,� said School Superintendent Lonnie Barber. “Even on the playground you hear kids say, ‘We have to be win-win about this.’� “The teachers say it benefits them as adults, as well,� added Heather Crocker, the district’s communications director. “They’re using it with their colleagues. And they’re using it in their own families.� tws

Bellevue’s Family Leadership Night

Kelsey Syms, a sophomore at The Community School in Sun Valley and longtime animal enthusiast, will be helping support local efforts to generate awareness and support of the Animal Cruelty initiative. Kelsey, along with fellow students and adult members of the community, will have a petition-signing booth at this year’s 27th Annual Happy Howlin’ Paw and Pole to be held at the Sun Valley Gun Club, Sunday, March 4 from 9 a.m. until noon. All animal-loving registered voters are encouraged to stop by the booth and show their support for their fellow four-legged friends by signing the petition. Idaho is one of three remaining states in which cruelty to animals is treated as a misdemeanor. Passage of this bill would raise the penalties to a felony. The 27th Annual Happy Howlin’ Paw and Pole supports the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley. Additional information can be obtained by contacting Kelsey Syms at 208-726-2368.

Bellevue Elementary reached out into the community to share its focus on leadership by hosting a family leadership night this past week. Bellevue Elementary wanted to involve not only its students and staff, but all of the Bellevue parents in learning about Stephen Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.� These habits of leadership have become the core of Bellevue Elementary—as this year Bellevue became an official “Leader in Me� school, which is part of Sean Covey’s Leader in Me program. The Family Leadership Night was a student-led event where close to 400 family members were in attendance. Students of all ages, preschool through fifth-grade, took charge. Student ushers led parent tour groups through rotations highlighting different habits-in-action in every classroom. It was a fun family night to learn about being a leader!

John Glenn and Denise Simone in God of Carnage.

God of Carnage Concludes BY KAREN BOSSICK


ired of the bickering at the presidential candidate debates? Take a commercial break and tune into “God of Carnage� at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey. Company of Fools are staging this Tony Award-winning play, which happens to be one of the top three most produced plays in the country at the moment, according to actress Denise Simone. And the bickering about things like the point of existence and moral conceptions of the world should prove a welcome break for those tired of hearing the same political slogans shouted over and over again. Denise Simone wrings out every emotion and muscle in her body as she portrays a control freak of a mother who will stop at nothing to make sure her son’s 11-year-old playmate expresses just the proper amount of contrition for knocking her own son’s two front teeth out in a playground spat. Her counterpart, played by Patsy Wygle, seems more concerned about taking the cel phone out of her husband’s hands than the stick out of her son’s hands.


That’s because her lawyer husband, played by Keith Moore, is bent on shutting out his family’s affairs to do damage control for his client—a pharmaceutical company that is pumping out drugs that are more harmful than helpful to their users. John Glenn, who plays the father of the boy with the bashedin teeth, has blood on his own hands, it turns out—even if it is the blood of a hamster. And that revelation throws the evening into a tailspin. The entire affair might have been settled amicably had the play lasted just 90 seconds. But, by taking it 90 minutes, it turns into a free-for-all with loyalties shifting faster than even today’s gas prices. Believable? Hardly. But “God of Carnage� will likely prove more entertaining than you ever thought it could. And chances are you’ll leave clamoring for the amazing coffee table designed by set designer Joe Lavigne with the help of welder Bob Weiderrick and designer Nate Galpin. The play concludes this week with performances at 7 p.m. tonight and Thursday and 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday. For tickets, call 208-578-9122 or go to tws

Wide Open Spaces Photo Exhibition In the early 20th century, the first panoramic cameras became available. At the same time, Idahoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s population was growing as railroads and improvements in agriculture fueled an expanding economy. Wide Open Spaces: Panoramic Photos of Idaho, 1900â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1940, an exhibition opening Friday, February 24 at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Hailey, features 28 rare panoramic photographs from two distinct historical collections. Images of Boise, Nampa, Twin Falls, Hailey and other Idaho locales such as Shoshone Falls and the Black Canyon Dam give viewers a sense of

Aslan Says Twitter Leaves no Room for Dictators BY KAREN BOSSICK


he days when a dictator could do things in the dark are over. Chances are Chinese leaders could not have turned out the lights if we had had Twitter and Facebook in 1989 in Tiananmen Square. Today we still don’t know how many or who was killed. “But those days are over. It’s not the Middle East that’s changed. It’s the world,” political analyst Reza Aslan said Thursday night. Aslan spoke to about 400 people as part of the Sun Valley Center for the Arts 2011-12 lecture series at the Church of the Big Wood in Ketchum. Aslan said he does not know where the “transformative moment” in the Middle East that started with a Tunisian fruit vendor who set himself on fire to protest his government’s corruption will take us. But Arab Spring is not a localized event. It’s a global revolution that’s spread to Russia and even the United States in the form of Occupy Wall Street, he said. Aslan said Arab Spring is more about democracy than economics. Yes, Middle Eastern protesters want better working conditions. But what they want most is the right to choose the people who make decisions for them. “Their desire to be heard comes first,” he said. There is no need to fear an Islamic takeover by the Muslim Brotherhood or any other group,

Aslan said. Once such groups get in power they don’t have room for a lot of ideology. They need to figure out how to make life better for their constituents. Hezbollah, for instance, did not wage war against Israel after coming to power in Lebanon as everyone expected them to because they were more concerned about elections, Aslan said. “Political participation has the power to moderate radicalism,” he said. In 10 years Israel will have to decide whether it will be a democracy, apartheid or something else as it deals with the Palestinians in its country, Aslan said. As for America, what is happening in the Middle East may be bad right now as gas prices escalate to record levels. But this country has an opportunity to build its relationship with this part of the world, Aslan said. “(Arab Spring) was not about anti-Americanism. It was about them. Al-Qaeda is over because of this new paradigm.” Aslan noted that women have been at the forefront of the revolutions. Aslan cited the example of women who went on strike against male workers in their factory when the males refused to help them strike for minimum wage. That strike led to a country-wide strike for a minimum wage in Egypt. Aslan ended by saying he doesn’t consider Israel’s threat to bomb Iran a serious one. The country has threatened that every six months for more than a decade if you scan the headlines in The New York Times, he added.


“It’s not the Middle East that’s changed. It’s the world.” “Political participation has the power to moderate radicalism.”

For the first time in Idaho’s history, the nomination process for the Republican presidential candidate will be conducted by Caucus. Blaine County will hold its GOP Presidential Caucus at the Wood River Middle School Cafeteria and ymnasium on March 6, 2012. Caucus doors will open at 6 p.m. for voter checkin. All registered Republicans voters in Blaine County are eligible to vote in the Caucus. Voters who have not completed a declaration of Republican Party affiliation can do so as they enter the Caucus site. New voter registration will also be available. The Caucus will begin promptly at 7 p.m., so participants are encouraged to arrive early. Five candidates have qualified for the ballot. They are, in the order they filed with the Idaho GOP: Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Newt

Gingrich and Buddy Roemer. The March 6 Caucus will select the candidate to be supported by Idaho’s delegates to the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Idaho will send 32 voting delegates to the convention– more than Iowa, New Hampshire or Nevada. “The Blaine County Republican Party encourages all Republicans residing in Blaine County to participate in this historic event. Idaho deserves a voice in the Presidential nominating process. We are pleased to play an important role in selecting the next Republican Presidential nominee,” stated Blaine County GOP Chairman Ed Terrazas. For more information about the Idaho Presidential Caucus, contact Idaho Republican Party Political Director, Trevor Thorpe, at 208-343-6405 or

Crisis Intervention Training Begins

The Iranian government members are at each others’ throats over what to do about their country’s poor economy and other problems, he added, and waging war with them would only unite them. “Right now Iran is obviously on its way to disintegrating,” he added.


Coming up: Reza Aslan was the next-to-the-last speaker in this year’s 2011-12 Sun Valley Center for the Arts lecture series—a series that has proven most thought-provoking and illuminating. “Prairie Home Companion’s” Garrison Keillor will cap it at 6:30 p.m. Monday. The sold-out lecture, originally scheduled to be held at the Community Campus, will instead be held at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood in Ketchum.

Trim Up as You Green Up!


hether it is a few stubborn holiday ounces, some post-baby fat, or the â&#x20AC;&#x153;freshman fifteen,â&#x20AC;? many of us have a little â&#x20AC;&#x153;excessâ&#x20AC;? hanging around our waistlines. Fortunately, making greener decisions about everyday living will also help you shed, and keep off, the extra weight. For example, try parking the car and walking or biking to your job or errands, instead; this combo gives you a two-fer of carbon emission reduction and cardio exercise. Eating a lot more vegetables will help too, so slot some vegetarian meals into your meal schedule. Instead of relying on salt, cheese and butter for flavor; choose local veggies in season or from Idahoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bounty for optimum taste and nutrition. Feeling great from all those superfoods will help keep your motivation up, too. If you are counting calories, substitute water in your reuseable bottle for sodas and alcohol, and their associated packaging. Make a little rule that you have to drink all that water before you can have some other treat you crave. Choose free-time activities that bring you joy. Instead of spending off hours in front of the TV or computer, do some volunteering or recreating outdoors. Play sports or board games with your buddies instead of dining out to socialize. Before long, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be slimmer, and perhaps have made some permanent lifestyle changes! Have a question, or want to write your own ERCbeat?

And Then, it Rained on the Parade



e were heading for a high ridge around 12,000 feet, but there were many ridges to cross before we got there, and we were still only partway to camp. These days, our lines stretched far ahead and far behind most of us. Visibility was good up and down the valley. Looking ahead at some speck in the distance was discouraging, so for a morale boost, I looked back and pitied the specks (mostly porters) laboring a mile or two behind. We were eye level with the ridges across the valley. The clouds, sticking to the ridgetops, were near. Though earth-bound, we were entering the sky world. With the feeling of spaciousness comes elation. The landscape mirrored a meditative state of mind which, as it empties, becomes lighter, more open. As we gained elevation we also felt we were leaving the world behind. The villages were now farther apart, and the crops changed from millet to barley, potatoes and corn. There were more dzhos (a mix of cattle and yaks), common in Nepal, and fewer muzzled goats. The leather restraints on their faces kept

Central Nepal.

the goats moving, since they were being taken to market. Slowly, we moved into a more barren landscape. Once past the ridge, we moved up through a forest of rhododendron trees and evergreens, broken up by rocky meadows of auburn heath. The increasing wind and cold brought a low ceiling and bonechilling air. The land grew pale and ghostly, it closed in, narrowed, and we felt confined. The rest stops were less frequent. It had been a long day. Our loaded daypacks seemed of lead, our shoulders were cramped, and every rise loomed insurmountable. We moved with heads bowed,

steps leaden, energy and will sapped. I vowed that the next rest would be my last. Where were we going? The next tree was a tree too far. The footing was slippery, the forest foreboding. I cursed the elements and even cursed the cursing. At last we arrived at our final meadow of heath and grass. We were beyond tired and slumped to the ground just as it began to rain. It was 32 degrees, and there was not a tent in sight. The porters had a tough day as well, and were somewhere behind us. We scrambled to get into our raingear and just sat, hunched over and shivering. The

trip leader, Jack, surveyed the realm from under his umbrella, content as a dzoh. The sherpas were whistling and singing as usual, trying to start the fires, scrounging for wood, fetching water, and waiting for the camp gear to arriveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the kitchen, the tables, the mess tent. After an interminable hour, the porters straggled into camp and were immediately stripped of their loads. My tent was the last to arrive but, crawling into its damp confines, it offered little comfort. The mess tent was better. We clutched our hot beverages, but the chitchat was sparse; we were beyond that. I moved over to the portersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fire, which was always an unreasonably large blaze. As darkness moved in, the rain stopped and steam began to rise from my clothes. Dinner arrived late, but it was varied and well prepared rather than thrown together. Though everything we owned was moist and clammy, sleep claimed us. After a day like this, we could have slept on nails. tws If you have question or comments, contact Bali at this e-mail:

Local Film to Open Sun Valley Film Fest

Flamenco Warms Up Blustery Day BY KAREN BOSSICK


he Sun Valley Opera House sizzled Saturday night with the staccato of stomping feet and hands dancing through the airâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a perfect end to a blustery day. A sold-out audience applauded raucously as the New York-based Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana paraded examples of Spanish, Argentinean, Cuban and other forms of flamenco, rumba and salsa across the stage. The performance was yet another in the Sun Valley Center for the Arts winter concert seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a series that has proven to be as entertaining and informa-

tive as it has been varied. The Opera Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s improved lighting system set the mood for a twilight courtship as two guitarists, a box beater and a vocalist with a silky smooth voice accompanied the dancers. The dances flowed without interruption. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look at all the movements in their hands,â&#x20AC;? marveled June Carson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t move my feet that fast,â&#x20AC;? observed Dennis Hanggi. In a nod to traditional flamenco dancing, the dancers twirled shawls around their bodies, punctuated the night with castanets and added an air of mystery to their dance with

fans, all the time maintaining a proud upright carriage. Particularly engaging was the way the female dancers kicked their long ruffled dress trains in back of them as if they were dragonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tails. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watching on TV is just not the same,â&#x20AC;? observed Kristine Bretall, who organized the concert series.

Young Dubliners at the Brewery BY KAREN BOSSICK


eith Roberts has sung and heard plenty of Irish ballads about the Irish migrating to America in the wake of the potato famine. His Young Dubliners will break out a new song about migration when they visit the Sun Valley Brewery Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;one that speaks as much to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening now as it did to the Great Migration 150 years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lines include, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Even though they had to leave home to find the future elsewhereâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; And â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Same old story, just a different generation. Traveling people, a familiar situation,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? says Keith Roberts, the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead singer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had the idea to pay homage to those who have been forced to leave home from Ireland, Greece, Mexicoâ&#x20AC;Ś Then the recession created another wave of immigration. Anyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever had to leave home to go to a new country, even to a new state, will identify.â&#x20AC;? Roberts and the Young Dubliners will perform the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;We the Mightyâ&#x20AC;? for one of the first times in public when they perform Sunday at the Sun Valley Brewery. The show, which starts at 7 p.m., is part of their March to St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day tour and easily the biggest show of the year for the Brewery, according to the Breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sean Flynn. Tickets are $18 purchased in advance and $20 the day of the show, available at the Brewery or by calling 208-788-0805. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We the Mightyâ&#x20AC;? will be featured on the Dubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ninth album, which they are still in the process of recording. They plan to release the album in the summer of 2012. But they are allowing fans who have contributed to a pledge drive to help them com-


plete the recording, manufacturing and marketing of the album the opportunity to download the song before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not using a record label, we decided to do things the way we wanted,â&#x20AC;? says Roberts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With 200 shows a year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find time to go into the studio. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re giving our fans a sneak peek and allowing everyone who made a pledge to download it first as a thank you. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have done that had we been recording with a record label because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a standardized way they do things.â&#x20AC;? Roberts says he had no idea that his group would still be recording and performing its feisty Celtic rock 24 years after he co-founded the group in 1988 in Santa Monica, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have called it the Young Dubliners,â&#x20AC;? he said of the name that invites comparison to The Dubliners, one of Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest folk

groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Paul OToole and I were two young lads from Dublin who had moved to L.A., so the name was given to us by early fans and it made sense at the time. We originally called it the Young Guys from Dublin and it got shortened to the Young Dubliners. We thought about changing it but we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get out of it because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s who we were known as in L.A. And we thought changing our name would hurt us. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cool thing is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve stayed young at heart.â&#x20AC;? Richard says the group, which has served as the warm-up band for entertainers like Jethro Tull, John Hiatt, Chris Isaak, Jonny Lang and Great Big Sea, loves to perform in the Sun Valley area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were offered a chance to play there for New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve, but we already had committed to another gig. So we feel we owe tws you one!â&#x20AC;?

Old Dog Inspires New Tricks



ber-fans of Bob Dylan will be either thrilled or disheartened by the release of Chimes of Freedom: The Songs of Bob Dylan Honoring Fifty Years of Amnesty International, a collection of artists and bands covering a wide array of songs from Dylan’s voluminous catalogue. This four-CD benefit project features previously unreleased covers by acts from all genres, including Michael Franti, Bad Religion, Pete Townshend and, believe it or not, Miley Cyrus, among seventy other musicians. From Adele’s live rendition of “Make You Feel My Love,” to Queens of The Stone Age serving up their version of “Outlaw Blues,” there’s a certain reverence and cohesion to the collection, but when I got to Kesha’s take on “Don’t Think Twice (It’s Alright),” I had to scratch my head and wonder why this was included; I seriously doubt that she has been in any way influenced by Dylan and, although it’s nice that she probably wanted to contribute to a charity CD, she could have picked a more fitting artist to pay tribute to, like, say maybe Tiffany. But I digress. Beginning with Johnny Cash featuring The Avett Brothers and their technologically-enhanced “One Too Many Mornings,” to the final track, Bob Dylan himself and the title track “Chimes of Freedom,” this is one compilation of songs that will leave you in awe of Dylan’s songwriting prowess and how it can be adapted and interpreted in so many ways without ever losing its message. I’m still scratching my head about Kesha, though. tws

movie review



Two and a half stars


n the film Albert Nobbs, crossdressing is taken to a new level. That’s because the lead character, played by Glen Close, has been living a secret life as a man since her late teens. Close has a lot invested in the project, having played the character on the New York stage thirty years ago and having co-produced and helped in the writing of the screenplay. Her performance has earned critical raves and an Oscar nomination but, in the end, it lacks a center—a real reason behind the character’s motivations—that makes the performance more than a little odd. Still, the period piece reminds us of a day not so long ago when women had no place in the workforce. Set in late 19th-century Dublin, Nobbs has had a traumatic sexual experience as a teen and makes the odd choice to work as a butler and waiter in top hotels. As the story opens, she has become a closed-off shell of a woman, having subverted all her female sides to her male role. All that is left is the miserly hoarding of money in her floorboards and the dream of opening a tobacco shop. Enter Janet McTeer as a male house painter that discovers Nobbs’ secret, only to reveal her secret identity as a man. Nobbs now has a compatriot in her insular world and seeks to be married and as happy as McTeer. To this end, she courts a young maid played by the up-and-coming Mia Wasikowska who can only break her heart. The end is not a happy one and, ironically, leaves Wasikowska in the same dire straits as Nobbs. As a period piece, the film comes through in spades, but it is hard to ever get through the shell of Close’s portrayal to get to know the real Albert Nobbs. tws

This week marks the beginning of the tense Uranus and Pluto square, which lines up in a peak position on June 24th of this year. Uranus in the warrior energy of Aries wants revolution, and Pluto in Capricorn, the sign of authority, is not likely to back down without a fight. This aspect begins to turn the tables between the “haves” and the “have nots.” Wealth comes from knowing your real resources and using them well. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will have to tear down the old in order to rebuild. There’s an area of life that’s been begging for your attention -- maybe an unorganized closet or a messy financial arrangement. Take out all the relevant facts and items, and lay them out. It will look worse before it looks better. Bit by bit, you’ll improve the situation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). A certain amount of nervous energy gives you an edge if you direct it well. But being nervous too much of the time has the opposite result. Address your emotional state. Do what’s necessary to create a sense of safety in your world. This may mean pulling back from overly stressful situations for a while. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You know how you like to be treated, and that’s why you will be careful to give people a good degree of your attention. When you’re genuinely curious about someone, this is easy. It’s a bit trickier when your immediate interest level is low. But you have a knack for asking the questions that draw people out and you in. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Make more time for exercise. This week brings exciting challenges, and you’ll need to use your head. Did you know that increased muscle tone improves your ability to think? Getting

stronger physically will help you stave off fatigue and tension that could interfere with a person’s ability to learn. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be dealing in the unfamiliar this week, and it’s the perfect opportunity to experiment with questions of identity. Ask yourself: “Whom are you portraying?” If the role you have chosen is not working, you can change your role in regard to the situation. People who don’t know you will be none the wiser. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is too easy to live for others. You see a need and fill it. You follow a direction. You stand in a line. Don’t forget yourself. Make time for what you want to do. No one will organize around your secret wish, but your public request will be honored. Energize your spirit with an endeavor that is uniquely yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may be feeling slightly out of step. If you have any time to yourself this week, strongly consider celebrating your uniqueness with a solo dance. This will put you back in touch with the rhythms of the universe. When you’re alone, turn up the music, and let it move through you, restoring your “groove.” SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Before something exists, it doesn’t. And when it doesn’t, it’s often unimaginable. Have faith that things you haven’t experienced and would never imagine can still happen. Faith will help you invigorate a dull scene, blast through the creeping malaise or turn a chore into a party. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take measures to simplify your life. Cutting out the extraneous things you own and do will unclutter your environment and help you focus on what really matters to you. The reductions you make this week will

zakk hill comic strip

go a long way toward creating a happier, healthier and more satisfied future. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Success depends largely on your expectations and attitude. Before you leave the house each day this week, preview the day’s events in your mind’s eye. See things going well. See yourself working happily and being excited about the results you get. This “preview of coming attractions” will strongly influence events. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You won’t take advice from just anyone. You will be in a flexible mood, though, and will feel willing to try the suggestions of people you trust. There are only a privileged few in the category. You don’t give your trust easily, and when you do give it, you don’t take it back easily, either. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Sometimes moving forward feels like coming home and moving backward feels unfamiliar, so it’s difficult to tell the difference between progression and regression. Don’t worry too much about it. Instead, just be mindful not to get too comfortable where you are, and welcome change in whatever form it shows up. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You’ll finish a project over the next 12 weeks and cash in at the end of May. March brings an unusual opportunity to change your life in a remarkable way, all because you dared to look beyond the immediate. The excitement in June centers on mysterious secrets and investigations. Love lifts your spirits and gets you involved with new people, too. Invest in July. Your travels will be mostly to see family and handle business, but you’ll enjoy them as though they were complete leisure. tws

A Quiet Place â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me lay an invincible summer.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Albert Camus


hen we enter the richly textured world of Chinese medicine, we are handed new lensesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a new prescription for seeing life and its cycles with more depth and clarity. Now we are in the midst of the deepest, quietest cycle. In Chinese medicine, winter is associated with the kidney, our deepest, most protected organ. It contains the depths of our personal and collective unconsciousness. It holds the DNA that links us with our ancestors. It is the season of the water element. From water, life materializes. With water, life continues. No life function operates without it. You can see the message clearly: Actively maintain your bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s optimal hydration and do what you can to protect the waters of our Mother Earth. Notice the simple, elegantâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; yet often overlookedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;patterns of nature. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an interesting one: Foods shaped liked kidneys nurture the kidney energy. Think water chestnuts, kidney beans, any beans. See the beauty of this quiet season, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled by it. No matter how frozen the surface of the pond, beneath the surface life persists in its most primitive, enduring form. Still waters run deep. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time of preparation and gestation. Like the prophase of cellular division, beneath the quiet surface everything is lining up, ready for full throttle into springtime growth. In this time of stillness, the energy of the earth doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappear; it simply changes direction, turns toward its center. Plants and trees direct their energy toward the roots, prepping for their spring missions. Ancient wisdom suggests that we do the same. Even here in the Wood River Valley, where we proudly transcend the hibernating tendencies of winter with our sports and activities, take time. Take some time to turn inward. Meditate. Rest. It is time to

Rosemary Cody

store and integrate energy, not overspend it. Reflecting the pattern of trees stripped free of leaves in winter, Chinese Medicine associates this season with the bones, especially the low back and knees. Warm your bones, stretch your joints. Be grateful for our Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s orthopedic surgeons, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t send them unnecessary work. Chinese texts teach that the kidneys â&#x20AC;&#x153;open to the ears.â&#x20AC;? With the earth silent, our ability to hear is heightened. This is the time to really listen to ourselves and others. Silence sharpens all of our senses. The archetype associated with winter is the philosopher, always searching for deeper truths. Remember your own inner philosopher. Go deep, like water. Seep into all aspects of your life story. In the quiet places, intuition and new ideas take their form. Creation and healing are birthed. Embrace the spirit of winter. Invite Old Man Winter inside and offer him soup and a warm drink. Listen to his quiet, enduring wisdom. Engage him in deep conversation. Know that winter is a time of renewal and regeneration â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a point of new beginnings. Find your quiet place. Look inside. Look outside. We are already surrounded by the changes that we seek. tws

Tomato Time in the Wood River Valley

Every gardener will tell you that there is nothing better than homegrown tomatoes. From flavor to texture, the best place to find the tastiest tomato is in the garden. Many people in the Wood River Valley find tomatoes the most challenging food item to grow due to our cold climate and short growing season. Key to a successful crop: start your plants early. To ensure you get plenty of gorgeous, ripe tomatoes, join the Sawtooth Botanical Gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming class on the secrets of producing Wood River Valley tomatoes in your home garden from seeds and starts to harvest. On Tuesday, March 6, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., tomato aficionado Paddy McIlvoy will be sharing tips from his extensive experience growing tomatoes in his Old Hailey garden as part of the Sawtooth Botanical Gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vegetable Gardening Series. Last year, McIlvoy grew over forty varieties of tomatoes suited to the Wood River Valley and has plans to expand to over eighty varieties this year. He will share what he has learned about seed varieties, starting your plants, soil temperature, transplanting, fertilizing your plants, and generally cheating Old Man Frost. Class participants will leave the class ready to employ tested techniques to grow luscious tomatoes for fresh salads, canning or whatever else is on the menu. For more information or to register for the Vegetable Gardening Series or Tomatoes in the Wood River Valley, please call 726-9358.

Lindsay Vonn Does it Again BY BALI SZABO

Wood River Valley residents Muffy Ritz and EJ Harpham came across a couple of familiar faces looking down at them when they went back to northern Wisconsin this past weekend to compete in the American Birkebeiner: There were the pictures of themselvesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;former winners of the 50-kilometer skate/54-kilometer classicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;hanging on the wall of fame. Ritz and Harpham competed with 9,500 other Nordic racers in the Birkie again this year, along with VAMPS Kelly Allison, Kelly Martin, Lucy Bourret, Glo Kimball, Joney Otteson, Liz Mitchell, Linda McClatchy, Karen Simpson, Joni Cashman, Charil Reis and at least eight other Wood River Valley residents. Harpham finished first; Joney Otteson, sixth; Linda McClatchy, second; and Ritz second in their respective age groups. Temperatures were in the low 20s this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a welcome relief after last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frostbitten race in which temperatures never exceeded minus-10 degrees F.

he women followed the men to Bansko, Bulgaria, for two speed events, the downhill and the super-G. In Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training run, Reisch was first, followed by her friend, Lindsey Vonn. Young American Stacey Cook was fifth, but it was all for naught. With winds gusting to 80 miles per hour, Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downhill was cancelled and will not be rescheduled, as it was the last of the season before the upcoming World Championships, when this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top 25 women will compete in all events. On Sunday, Vonn won the super-G for her 10th win of the season. It was close, with Tina Weirather of Lichtenstein only .05 second behind her, and Italyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daniella Merighetti third, another .02 second back. The bumpy, challenging Marc Girardelli course gave Vonn trouble, but she turned on the afterburners on the bottom third and edged out the competition. This, Vonnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18th super-G

Mancuso, Vonn and Leanne Smith will represent the U.S. women in this event The men were in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. Old man of the slopes, Didier Cuche, won the super-G in front of his fans. He stressed the value of experience in the soft snow. He also thanked American Chris Krause for preparing his skis well. Jan Hudec of Canada was second, and Benjamin Raisch, third. Bode Miller is recuperating from a minor injury that required a little scoping, but should be ready to go next week. There was another super-G held Saturday and Benni Raisch got his first win in two years. His story has been â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;close, but no cigar.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming back from a serious knee

injury suffered last year, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no spring chicken. Adrien Thieux of France finished second, and Didier Cuche was third. On Sunday, Italian Massimiliano Blardone, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s having a good season, won the giant slalom. He overcame a deficit to Marcel Hirscher, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s having a great season, and fought his way down the rutted, soft Nationale course. Hannes Reichelt of Austria finished third. With Raisch and Cuche already winners in the weekend, Blardone made the third â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to record this trifecta. After his win, he kissed the snow, which is better than kissing it mid-run. The warm afternoon sun further softened the snow and really slowed the racers. Ted Ligety managed to hold on to his morning top-ten time and held on for a ninth-place finish. Hirscher and Blardone were lucky their morning runs held up, as they finished 18th and 20th in the second run. Too old.

Waller’s Traveling Bug BY JONATHAN KANE


ood River High School senior Maddy Waller has the traveling bug and she has been very fortunate to embrace that urge. With her family and with the travel club at school, Waller has seen a great deal of the world and she knows she has been lucky to do so. “It’s been my life’s passion,” she said. “In a way it defines who I am.” Her first trip out of the country was when she was twelve, to Mexico. But later that year she toured Europe and that’s what remains her strongest memory. Her whirlwind tour took her to Paris, Venice, a coastal Italian town, and to Zurich to visit an exchange student that had stayed with the Waller family the year before. “Paris was gorgeous and the one I want to go back to the most. When I first went there it didn’t really hit me, but after maturing and traveling to other places, I can appreciate that trip more than when I was there. It was really romantic and charming and old. My best memory was that we arrived early and too soon to check in at the hotel so went to the cathedral at Notre Dame. It was before the tourists showed up and it was real quiet with just a small service going on. It was the coolest thing I’ve ever done. We also got to tour the city and saw Jim Morrison’s grave and went to The Louvre museum and saw the Mona Lisa and a great deal of Monet’s and Picasso’s paintings. Venice was also amazing and incredibly beautiful. I didn’t realize it then but going to Europe was a real life-changer. You really get to see how the world is and how other people’s daily lives compare to your own. It opens up your eyes and the world in your mind.” In eighth grade Waller got the opportunity to visit Croatia and Slovenia with the high school travel club. “It was my first time traveling without my parents and I got to experience two new countries with my best friends and some new great friends. I remember the most that on our last day we rented kind of a pirate ship and toured the Aegean Sea and stopped at a lot of beaches. It was a really fun, carefree day.” Later that year Waller had the opportunity to

The menu features tapas plates and a selection of Spanish-style flatbreads, salads, and entrees.

travel with her family and see Egypt and Turkey. “In Egypt we got to take a camel ride around the pyramids and we got to see the Great Pyramid, which was amazing. We were able to go inside and see many of the chambers. The most interesting was to see the burial tomb. It was so quiet and we just sat there and took it all in.” As to Turkey, Waller said, “I think Istanbul is my favorite city of all. I really liked the culture there and felt very safe, and because I was also slightly out of my comfort zone, I was able to learn a lot and I still have a great feeling in my heart for the place. While we were there we saw the Blue Mosque and all the really beautiful tile work. The culture is just so rich there. Also the food was amazing—the best I’ve ever had. A lot

of it I had never had before. The meats were so tender and the bread and desserts were amazing. We never had a bad meal.” Born in Laramie, Wyo., Waller moved with her family to the Wood River Valley at the age of two. “I think this is one of the greatest places to grow up for both kids and parents. There is also so much to offer in the way of outdoor activities and cultural opportunities. It can get a little tiring sometimes coming up with things to do, but it is what you make of it.” For Waller, you can always be sure she will make the most of any opportunity that comes her way. tws

The suggested donation is $15 at the door, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds. The message Anam Thubten delivers is that we are ready to be awakened to divine reality at every moment. There is nothing that is binding us except this illusory separation between self and the truth. And this separation can fall apart in this very moment, since it doesn’t have any solidity. We must cherish this extraordinary potentiality. There is no reason to postpone this inner awakening. Now is the time to dive into the ocean of love and wisdom. Today, Thubten travels extensively in the U.S., and occasionally abroad, teaching in fluent English and offering in a direct experiential manner the essence of the timeless, non-conceptual wisdom teachings of the Buddha. These teachings, free of any sect, point directly to one’s true nature as boundless love and wisdom. In his teachings and presence with others,

Two More Ugly Duckling Performances

151 N. Main St. in Hailey




ans Christian Anderson’s tale of “The Ugly Duckling” got new life breathed into it Saturday morning as St. Thomas Playhouse commenced its fifth annual Children’s Theater Tour. This version, written by Hailey actor Andrew Alburger, has the Ugly Duckling played by Kristy Kuntz being christened Loretta Duck Lynn by a Mama Duck who adores country music singers like Minnie Squirrel. It features a catchy tune about “I love that living in the country” to match. But Loretta’s siblings, played by Alburger and Sara Gorby, contend that she looks more like “Ugly Duck Lynn,” and even a barn animal version of Christina Aguilera has trouble getting over the young’un’s looks. “The show is geared for the very youngest of children. But, because of the humor in the script and songs, all ages—even adults, will thoroughly enjoy it,” said Cherie Kessler, who plays Mama Duck. The 45-minute play, performed out in front of a handsome backdrop painted by Judy Stoltzfus, features wild ducks who use “Wild Thing” as their theme song. And it includes a pig and kitty who try to convince Loretta that she needs to learn to purr.

The Ugly Duckling, played by Kristy Kuntz, sees its reflection in the pond.

“But I love the water because you can dive and splash,” Loretta responds. In the end, the mishmash of hip-hop, rap, and countrified lyrics is a gentle reminder to the children that diversity is something to be prized, rather than made fun of. And that everyone has a responsibility to treat one another with kindness and respect. “Love who you are and stand up and be proud,” Mama Duck tells the once-ugly duckling who turns into a beautiful swan.

“Being special is what makes me me,” acknowledges the Loretta swan. St. Thomas Playhouse will perform two more public performances of the show—at 10:30 a.m. Friday at the Hailey Library and at 2 p.m. Saturday at Iconoclast Books. The theater will also perform the show at 9 a.m. today at Woodside Elementary School and at 10 a.m. Thursday at Pioneer Montessori School. It will take the show on the road to tws Fairfield, as well.

a recipeâ&#x20AC;Śfrom my table to yours Eggs Picante â&#x20AC;&#x201D; easy and eggscellent BY MARGOT VAN HORN


ereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a recipe that is has four things going for it: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s super easy to make. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s healthy and can easily be not full of calories with the right ingredients. It looks pretty, decadent and like a soufflĂŠ. You and your guests will be impressed. It can be easily varied to your heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire. I love recipes like thatâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you?


6 large eggs 6 heaping tablespoons plain yogurt (can be any style and even non-fat) ½ Cup Picante or Salsa Sauce ½ Cup grated Cheddar, Jack or a Mexican style Cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees In a blender, whip eggs and yogurt until frothy. Spray a pretty 9 â&#x20AC;&#x153;pie dish with non-sticking spray and pour the eggs and yogurt into it. Bake until firm/set and the top is golden (about 20 minutes)

Spread Picante sauce over the eggs and sprinkle top with the cheese. Bake for about 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese has melted. Some Variations on the Basic If you wish, you can make individual ones in non-sticking sprayed ramekins. I use one egg and one heaping tablespoon yogurt per ramekin. Place the ramekin(s) on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees (because they are on a cookie sheet) for 15 to 20 minutes (or until eggs are firm and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s started turning golden); top with sauce and cheese for five minutes more. If you have left-overs, they can be refrigerated and reheated in a micro for a little bit. This goes very nicely with corn bread, Indian Nan, tortillas or yogurt biscuits. I have also used a nice Hollandaise instead of the picante for a different variety sauce. For the cheese, it can be a shredded Muenster. A little slice of Canadian bacon, some asparagus, and an English muffin for the side for Eggs Hollandaise is perfect.

This is a recipe that you can throw your imagination into and can be easily varied. PS-in regards to last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cherry Granola Breakfast Bake, I forgot to mention that one of my favorite ways of having it during the next week or so is cold from the frig. & sliced along with a nice cup of tea of coffee. It makes for a fast nutritious breakfast. tws Margot is a self-taught enthusiastic & passionate cook.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My parents are the best. They helped make sure I kept good grades in high school. When I went off to college, they paid the bill. Now that I've graduated, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve moved back home. I admit I have it pretty good. My Mom does my laundry, there's always food in the fridge and they have premium cable channels. Except now there's a threat to my lifestyle on the horizon. The deal in moving back home was that I get a full time job and save some money to move out. My Dad practically wrote my resume, and I must say, it looks great. Then we sent it to a few places we found advertised in the newspaper. Now I'm getting calls for interviews, but I'm worried I might get one! I need some helpful hints on how to blow an interview so I don't actually get a job. At 23 I'm not ready to wear a tie all day.

Carry: Between a free place to

live, free food, laundry service and premium cable, you do have it pretty good. Any chance you need a roommate? Cash: You are very fortunate your parents let you move back home, but at 23 years old, it's time

for you to grow up. After all, your parents should be planning their retirement, not your future! Carry: Surprisingly though, you're not a minority in moving home after college. Today more than half of all graduating college students move back in with their parents after getting their degree. Rough news for the parents! Cash: For some graduates, the move home is a financial decision. College loans and expensive rent make it difficult to get ahead. Others simply miss their family life during their stay at school. Carry: And some, like in your case, just need time to figure out a direction for themselves. Since your parents have been generous

in offering you a place to stay after college, you should use this time to your advantage, besides just watching unlimited movies! Cash: Although we could offer you dozens of suggestions for blowing an interview, your time can be much better spent. Instead of focusing your energy on how not to lose your free cable and favorite snacks, use this time to explore what you really want to do. If a desk job with a shirt and tie doesn't appeal to you, look for a career that better fits your personality and your wardrobe. Carry: Just remember not to take advantage of your parents. One day they might move in with you!

Most parents expect their son or daughter to graduate college and move out on their own. But for many it doesn't quite work like that. Recent surveys estimate that about 60% of graduating college students plan to move back home with Mom and Dad. This trend has spawned a series of terminology to describe the phenomenon, such as "boomerang kids", "twixers", "adultescence" and "thresholders". In Britain, they sometimes use the acronym "KIPPERS" meaning "Kids In Parents Pockets Eroding Retirement Savings".

Under One Roof

Many parents happily welcome their children home after college. However, the change in living arrangements can cause a lot of conflict for everyone. Although every situation is different, experts agree that the best way to create a peaceful environment is to specify all terms up front. Before letting your children move back home, discuss everything from household chores, rent, finances and their intended length of stay. Be sure to write down the rules to avoid conflict or resentment in the future. â&#x20AC;˘


Reader Humor All Nighter

College can be grueling at times, but my grandfather always said it paid to get an education. At the end of my first year in college, I returned home for the summer. Still mentally exhausted from the final exams, I stayed home one night to talk with my dad. He told me that when he went off to college, grandpa gave him a pat on the back and told him that if he studied hard, it would eventually pay off. "Well," I asked him, "Was he right? Did studying pay off?" "Absolutely," he smiled. "About mid semester I found the $500 check grandpa put in my history book." (Thanks to Kenneth G.)
