annual race happens this Sunday BY KAREN BOSSICK

Flags touting Sun Valley’s status as an Olympic/Paralympic Nordic training site went up outside the Sun Valley Nordic Center on Sunday—just in time for the NCAA collegiate races, which are being held there through Sunday. Similar flags will go up at Ketchum Town Plaza, Galena Lodge, the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Headquarters and Lake Creek Nordic Training Center.

Community Eyes Olympic Training Possibilities


hat does a boathouse foundation in Oklahoma City have to do with Sun Valley? It’s the Olympic training site that both Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Director Don Wiseman and Sustain Blaine Director Harry Griffith keep pointing to when they cite the potential that awaits Sun Valley as an Olympic/Paralympic Nordic training site. The Oklahoma City Boathouse Foundation believed that the Oklahoma River had the power to change lives and help Oklahoma City become a stronger, healthier community. They diverted water from the Oklahoma River into a canal and, since, they have hosted national and international racing events and festivals there, including a USA Canoe/Kayak Olympic Trials and an international Rowing World Challenge. They built a National High Performance Center with a rowing tank, hypoxic training room and indoor propulsion swim pool. And they’re about to build a world-class Whitewater Rafting and Kayak Center and river stadium as attractions for people who now come from around the world to row, kayak, dragon boat, run and cycle along the river. We don’t have to do anything now that we have been designated a training site, Griffith told 50 people attending a community meeting Thursday night at Sun Valley’s Limelight Room. We’ve already proven to the Olympic Committee that we’re worthy of being a training site by virtue of what we’re already doing, including the hosting of the Super Tour every couple years. There are just five programs nationwide that compare to Sun Valley’s Gold Team, said Sun Valley Nordic Coach Rick Kapala. And the Wood River Ability Program is the most active program for Paralympians in the country, according to its head, Marc Mast. But we could strive for more: more camps, competitions, conferences,

ne of Randy Flood’s most cherished photos is of his father—Peter Flood—taking him down the Kindercup course when he was just 2 1/2. He can’t wait to do the same with his 3-year-old son Huxley this coming Sunday. “It’ll be father passing on the tradition to his son,” said Flood, who still has his trophy from that first race. “Our community is a skiing community and the Kindercup is a milestone. Anyone who’s lived in the Valley, whether they’re a professional skier or not, has raced in the Kindercup.” The Papoose Club will hold its 57th annual Kindercup on Dollar Mountain beginning at 10:15 a.m. Sunday. This year’s race is being dedicated to Alice Schernthanner, longtime maven of the Children’s Ski School at Dollar Cabin. Schernthanner was among a group of mothers who started the club in 1954, giving moms a chance to babysit one another’s children so each could get some skiing in. The group started the Kindercup in 1957 at the old Kinderhorn ski hill, which sits above the Ketchum Cemetery, before moving to Dollar Mountain, said Anna Mathieu. Since, it has become one of the Valley’s most beloved traditions. The Papoose Club added the Nordic Cup in 2006 to address the growing number of children who were taking up skinny skiing. Heather Flood Daves—Randy Flood’s sister—said the Kindercup was one of the things she looked forward to as she moved back home from Atlanta, Ga., 10 years ago with two infant boys, Ethan and Alex, in tow. “I won once—the Kindercup got me started in my racing career,” said Daves, a pro racer who went on to be NCAA champion while skiing for Middlebury College in Vermont and a pro racer. “I remember always looking forward to it… the sunny days, all my friends getting together. And it’s very exciting to have my kids do it, to participate in something I did when I was a kid. We live in a place where there are not a lot of traditions that go back years and years, but the Kindercup is one of them.” Angie Grant Kettleband remembers being “super scared” as she stood in the gates for the first time. “Here I was, this little kid on this

big mountain. I didn’t know if I would be able to make it around all those gates. But my three older sisters had done it before me and my mom was there, cheering me on. And afterwards, I felt proud I’d done it. It ‘an amazing thing for the camaraderie and confidence it builds,” she said. Eric Leidecker remembers how nervous he was when his oldest daughter Sasha raced in the Kindercup for the first time. “I saw Doran Key, who was one of my coaches when I was on the farm team, up there at the start and I could feel the pre-start jitters coming back even though I wasn’t racing,” he said. “It was a little nerve-wracking standing up there looking at all the adults I used to race against as kids. It was kind of like we were all sizing up each others’ kids.” Danielle Carruth recalls her son Jett, now 9, never took the straight path down. The first year he was distracted by the balloons and stopped in the middle of the race to fetch one. The second year he stopped at the gate to beckon his mother to join him. “It’s fun. It’s cute,” she said. “All the kids get a silver dollar from the bank so everyone wins. And I really think it’s a lot of fun for the kids to run the gates,” said Carruth, whose 7-year-old son Zephyr and 5-year-old daughter Scarlett are also Kindercup pros. Papoose Club President Danni Dean says that the Kindercup not only supports growth activities for the kids of the Wood River Valley, but puts its volunteers in direct contact with the kids for whom the club raises funds. “For me, the importance of the Kindercup is that the children are all having fun outside in the snow and on the ski slopes,” said Randy and Heather’s mother, Debbie Flood, who steered

elissa Arnot leaves to climb Mount Everest for the sixth time in a couple weeks. This time the 29-year-old Ketchum resident will be climbing to raise money for supplemental insurance for sherpas in honor of her own sherpa, who was swept away in an avalanche when an ice fall collapsed in 2010. If she finds herself between a rock and a hard place, she’ll draw on the strength she found hour after hour of pushing herself in Sun Valley. Arnot, the first woman to summit Everest four times, may take her first step on Everest later this month. But she contends that she really took the first step last fall. That’s when she resumed her routine of waking up at 6 in the morning to climb Baldy, a 50pound pack on her back. A quick breakfast back on the bottom and she was headed to Zenergy health club for a few hours of working out before capping her work day with a run. “You could easily say I’m fit enough and I probably am—after all, I’ve been climbing mountains all summer. But I don’t know if I’m mentally fit enough and that’s where training comes in. If I can do these things when I’m really not into it, I can do it when I need to 29,000 feet up a mountain,” she says. Arnot is one of three worldclass mountain climbers who train in Sun Valley, using the surrounding mountains and 47,000-square-foot Zenergy health club. All three—Arnot, Peter Whittaker and Ed Viesturs—will share some of their experiences during a talk at 7 p.m. Thursday at The Community School in Sun Valley. Arnot fell in love with mountain climbing while growing up near Glacier National Park in Whitefish, Mont. She moved here from Bozeman in 2008. “I wanted a smaller town, more sense of community. I’m gone six to eight months of the year so it’s super important to me to come home and feel like people noticed I was gone,” said Arnot, who climbs Everest from late March through June, then guides on Mount Rainier. Even though Arnot spends six months of the year climbing, she starts her training program when she returns to Sun Valley in September. She mixes it up a lot but generally it involves strength intervals, treadmill work, spinning class, a workout on the Hoist jungle gym system, climbing time on a machine called Jacob’s Ladder, and weightlifting. “I’m a professional athlete and guide. I have an obligation to my sponsors to be at the best I can be. I want to keep strong but I don’t want to build a lot of muscle because muscles use a lot of oxygen. I need my quads to be strong but not huge, so I use medium weights but do a lot of repetitions. Then, when my muscles are exhausted, I throw a medicine ball up in the air and against a wall to push myself a little harder,” she says. When the cardio and strength work is done, Arnot repairs her body with yoga, isolated stretches on Zenergy’s new stretching machines, time in the eucalyptus steam room, acupuncture and massage. “Stretching my body is key to not getting injured. My acupuncturist and massage therapist, Annelies Ware, finds the muscles that are tight and works on them. The acupuncture is like a magic wand—it relieves inflammation.” Arnot thought once about moving to Aspen. But, she claims, she couldn’t bear the thought of leaving Zenergy’s hot tub and its

view of Baldy. “I feel lucky to be here,” says Arnot, who further cemented her ties to the area in July when she married Jon Duval, a Sun Valley Suns hockey player and head of Ketchum’s Community Development Corporation. On her next expedition, Arnot—a paramedic—will be climbing with the sherpas that set the ropes for those who follow. “A lot of people think mountain climbing involves a lot of adrenaline. But mountaineering is really a slow endurance sport. Everest, for instance, takes 60 days to climb as you climb up and down and up and down in the process of acclimatizing. “You’ve got to keep a long-term focus while maintaining shortterm enthusiasm. It’s minus 30 at the top. And in the middle of the day it can be one of the hottest places on earth and yet you have to be covered up because you’re so close to the sun.” A bad day, she says, is not when she tweaks her knee but when another climber dies. “It reminds you that life is fragile,” she says. “I know if I choose to play in that world I’ve got to set boundaries and know when to pull back.”


Zenergy-sponsored athletes Melissa Arnot, Peter Whittaker and Ed Viesturs—all who live in the same neighborhood—will share their love of the mountains in “An Elevated Evening Around the World” Thursday. Viesturs, America’s leading highaltitude climber, has climbed all 14 of the 8,000-meter peaks without supplemental oxygen. Whittaker has climbed all of the Seven Summits—the highest mountain peaks on each of the seven continents. And Arnot is the only woman to summit Everest four times. All three guide on Mount Rainier with RMI, Rainier Mountaineer, Inc., which was founded by Peter’s father Lou Whittaker. Combined, they have summitted 14,411-foot Mount Rainier, which is considered one of the most challenging volcanoes in the world and a training ground for the Himalayas, more than 500 times. The evening, sponsored by Zenergy Health Club & Spa, starts at 7 p.m. Thursday at The Community School Theater in Sun Valley. General admission is $15. A Meet and Greet will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Cost of the Meet and Greet is $25 and includes admission to the talk. Tickets are available at the Zenergy front desk, The Elephant’s Perch and online at

Soil Prep for Veggie Gardens


roper soil preparation provides the basis for good seed germination and growth of garden crops. The steps of soil preparation include testing, amending, and tilling. Testing: Contact your local County Extension Office to get instructions and sample bags for testing your garden soil. Soil tests are especially critical in a new garden plot but soil should be analyzed at least once every three years because conditions do not remain static. The soil test will tell you how much organic matter and fertilizer is needed. Amending with Organic Matter: Organic matter improves soil structure, increases water-holding capacity, improves fertility, and reduces problems with soil diseases. There is no replacement for organic matter in improving soil health and providing good growing conditions for vegetables. Organic matter can be added in the form of plant waste, compost, or using green manures. It is necessary to consistently add organic matter (every year or two) because it rapidly breaks down in the soil. Fertilizing: It impossible to provide fertilizer application recommendations that will apply to every gardening situation. But, whether you prefer traditional or

Harrison Hotel

organic methods, some concepts are universal. For one, nothing can replace a soil test for providing the information required to make appropriate fertilizer application decisions. Two, for vegetable gardens, additions of nutrients in some form will be required to consistently grow a good crop. Knowing the amount of fertilizer elements required will make it easier to choose an appropriate product to apply. Deciding how to fertilize a vegetable garden should take into account the fertilizer amounts needed by “low-nutrient-using” crops vs. “high-nutrient-using” ones. Tillage: The final step in soil preparation is tillage. Ideally, soil should be tilled to a depth of at least 10 inches. It is important to avoid working soil when it is too wet. This is especially true for non-sandy texture soil. Working wet soil breaks down the soil structure causing it to become cloddy and hard. The negative impact of tilling wet soil may last for years.

Turning the Table With Krekow BY JONATHAN KANE


ick Krekow, Community School junior, loves to spin—records, that is. Although technically he’s not spinning vinyl on old school turntables, he’s still spinning out highly danceable beats. “I was always messing around with D.J.’ing,” he said. “I love music and I love to make people dance so eventually people started asking me to D.J. at weddings and at other events. Last summer I got serious and bought some equipment, including turntables, software and some speakers. The software is called Tractor and allows you to mix and edit the music.” All of this is done live. “Although I can scratch, I don’t like to do it. Everything is digital and comes from my computer. I don’t use CDs or vinyl. I also haven’t been doing it too much lately because I’m focusing on getting into college, but when I do it, I focus on house music and rap, especially people like 50 Cent, Dr. Dre and The Game. The bottom line is that I like to make people happy and getting them to dance is a great way.” In the meantime, Krekow is

carrying a 3.9 grade point average at The Community School where he has a special love for math and science. He is currently taking Advanced Placement calculus. “I want to be an engineer—maybe mechanical, but I’m not sure because the field is so broad. But I find math and science easy and I have an affinity for it. I’m interested in how things work. In calculus you can find the areas and volume of any shape regardless of size. I also like definitive answers to problems and that doesn’t happen in classes like English. Also, I love to build things.” This hobby started at six years old with extensive work with Lego sets. “At 15 I built a Tesla coil that was six feet tall. It can produce lightning and can power a fluorescent bulb if you place it next to it. I just pieced it together and found out how to build it online. It looked really cool and interesting and it turned out awesome. I still have it in my garage.” On to his new project—building a hovercraft. “It’s a craft that has a skirt that

fills with air and floats. I want to build one for two people and that can travel at 50 mph. It’s powered by a small engine, like one from a snowmobile. There are lots of plans online but it will cost several thousand dollars so that’s what’s been holding me back. That, and Mom’s not too thrilled about the idea.” Krekow is also a member of the Boy Scouts and is close to becoming an Eagle Scout, which he must complete before he turns 18. “I started in ninth grade because before that I was on the cross-country ski team and that took up a lot of my time. My brother was an Eagle Scout so it seemed very interesting and it was just something that I wanted to do. I enjoy being outside because I’m very athletic and I love all the skills and opportunities that it has afforded me.” These are skills and opportunities that will serve Krekow well in a bright future. tws Each week, Jonathan Kane will be profiling a local high-school student.

he scene of a 12-year-old girl forced to gun down her family rather than watch them be killed with a machete by rebel soldiers flickered across the screen of the Sun Valley Opera House Sunday night. “I had to learn to make my tears go inside my eyes so they wouldn’t see me crying,” said the girl, in this story of human resilience. Even as a sold-out Sun Valley audience got a taste of some of the brutalities going on half-way around the world in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the drama “War Witch was raking in Canada’s equivalent of the Oscars. By the time the credits rolled across the screen, “War Witch”—a 2013 Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film—had collected 10 Canadian Screen Awards, including those for “Best Film, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Screenplay. “The director had planned on being here tonight after opening the film in New York on Friday. But he had to change his plans when he received all these nominations,” said Peggy Goldwyn, co-chair of the Family of Woman Film Festival. The Family of Woman Film Festival, founded six years ago, has gotten stronger with each year as it presents films designed to open eyes about the struggles women and children face around the world. “Your attendance tonight is an act of activism,” said Kate Gilmore, deputy director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and assistant secretary-general of the United Nations. “Showing up is an act of standing up. You’ll see how desperate is the need for standing up, standing out, speaking out.” “The invisible War,” another 2013 Academy Award nominee, seemed to resonate the most with viewers—if for no other reason than it involved Americans and is something viewers felt they could do something about. The military is a target-rich environment for predators who study their prey, stalk them and wait until they’re at their most vulnerable to attack, experts said as the film rolled. Fifteen percent of those who have been accused of assaulting a fellow soldier had attempted or committed rape before entering the military—twice that of the regular population, the film added. But, of more than 3,000 allegations, only 175 perpetrators have done time. One official dismissed the complaints as “an occupational hazard of military service.” Those who are raped in the military have a higher rate of post-traumatic stress disorder than men in combat, the movie added. “It’s hard because they see each other as family, as a band of brothers and sisters. When that bond of trust is violated, it penetrates to the heart,” said Film Director Amy Ziering following

Amy Ziering, director of “The Invisible War,” chats with Trina McDonald, one of the women who told how they’d been sexually assaulted by fellow troops in the film. McDonald’s dog is trained to deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. She creates space around McDonald and checks the perimeters of McDonald’s house before McDonald enters.

the screening. The movie already prompted Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to take the decision to prosecute away from unit commanders, said Ziering. Better yet would be taking that decision outside the chain of command. Festival co-chair Stephanie Perenchio said interest following the movie has prompted her to put together a list of names for those wanting to help that will be forwarded to Ziering. Those wishing to be involved can also go to “Human suffering anywhere

concerns me and women everywhere,” Perenchio added. Tracey Caraluzzi not only watched many of the films but she and Julie Zapoli used their new catering business, A2Z Catering, to furnish the lavish reception featuring such interesting foodbites as Roquefort Cheesecake with Ginger Snaps. “We live in a cloistered community. This film festival gives my daughters and sons a chance to see some of the things going on in the rest of the world,” she said. tws

The Visible War on Women

The Family of Woman Film Festival: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Invisible Warâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; - a film by Amy Ziering and Tina McDonald BY BALI SZABO


was swift. Sometimes she was re-raped. She became the accused. She was asking for it, her skirt was too short, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been drinking, she was an opportunistic slut, she was a liar. The report was whitewashed, swept under the rug, and it was the victim who was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;investigated.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; There were no witnesses, no one talked, no one listened or cared, no one believed them. One victim was court-martialed and convicted of adultery when she, single, was assaulted by a married officer. One woman said they were facing three choicesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;suicide, AWOL, or just go along with it. The complainers were courtmartialed or discharged, kicked to the curb while the named offenders kept their ranks or were promoted. Some became serial sex offenders, embedded to abuse hundreds of others. Once out of the service and with no access to justice, broken marriages, depression, drug use and the inability to hold a job, homelessness and suicide follow. Forty percent of homeless female vets were raped. Almost all suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Once diagnosed, the VA gives them drugs, as many as 24 different pills per day, and they spend the rest of their lives moaning, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;is that all there is?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They call themselves Zombie Nation. The VA doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fix their injuries. After 10 or 20 years on the merry-go-round, there is still no closure, no end to their broken, often hopeless, lives. tws

his aptly named film (documentary) echoes the title of one of the great books of American literature, Ralph Ellisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Invisible Man.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; When we dehumanize a black man, a woman, or anyone else, we render them invisible, as if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter in the larger scheme of things. In a small lead-in to the film, the executive director of the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin expressly stated, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They are not women, they are human beings.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The film begins with a classic piece of sarcasmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;jingoistic footage from old newsreels extolling the virtues and the nobility of military service. It showed the WACs of World War II doing their sit-ups, marching in formation, a vital part of the war effort. Be all you can be. Suddenly, the film cuts to a series of live interviews with seven former servicewomen who, one at a time, tell their stories. Beaming and proud, they either came from military families or thought that serving their country was an honor and a duty.

All of them, enlisted in various branches of the military and the Coast Guard, were raped by their fellow band of brothers. The 250 people in attendance at the Opera House were seeing a tear jerker, but it was no fun. Throughout the presentation they could be heard gasping. The detailed accounts of these longsuffering women were shocking, and that was just the beginning. About 80 percent of assaulted women do not report it, nor do the thousands of men who suffer the same fate. The military is a self-enclosed hierarchy, and the victims have nowhere to go, in spite of high-profile public assurances to the contrary. Until recently, the unit commander was the final judge and jury. The change of command ended with him, and he had unit morale to consider. Boys will be boys. Passing complaints upstairs endangered his career. It is estimated that upwards of 500,000 military women have been raped over the last 25 years, often by someone who outranked them. A woman is more likely to be raped in the military than in civil society. Every victim said that while the rapes were bad (they were frequently violent and resulted in physical injury, sometimes permanent), breaking the bonds of trust were worse. Ideals, hopes, dreams and lives were shattered. It might as well have been incest. If the woman reported the incident (after they were warned not to), the retaliation

C7H9>,"(&') Spring Skiing By JiM Santa


hile it is warming up and some folks are starting to break out the bikes and fly rods donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t despair, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a lot of great skiing to be had. Despite the lack of snow currently showing on the south facing slopes around the valley, Baldy still has a great base and if you choose to venture into the backcountry thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely plenty of snow, especially on the north facing aspects. As we move into spring weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see the snow continue to transition. The freeze/thaw cycle creates what many argue is the most ideal snow to ski, corn snow. For me personally, I absolutely love the spring skiing, warm sunny days and corn. Of course if the past couple of seasons are any indication, we could still see some substantial storms and few more powder days. Either way, soft spring snow or late season powder, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to go wrong in the months of March and April. The bottom line is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got plenty of good skiing ahead for at least the next month. On the flip side, this nice weather does tend to give us a bit of spring fever. One of the huge attributes of living in this great place is that we do have so many great outdoor options. So why not supplement your skiing with a bit of cycling, fishing, running or hiking. With these warmer days, the fishing has been outstanding with a few bugs starting to pop and the fish beginning to actively feed. The roads are dry and depending upon the weather we may see some trails in the south valley become ride able soon. But please, do not hike or ride on any trails that are not completely dry and firm. With the days getting longer itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time of year to combine two or three of these great activities into the same day and Sturtevantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s can help outfit you for any of these activities. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful time of the season so get out and enjoy some great spring skiing, or whatever other great option you choose. Just be sure you get out and do something!

ll right, I have to admit it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a sucker for small films aimed at the adult market that feature excellent actors, a fine script and confident direction. Such is the case with the fine new film Quartet which opened at the Magic Lantern Cinemas on Friday. It also is noteworthy because it is the directorial debut of the 75-yearold (can you believe it?) expert actor, Dustin Hoffman. Hoffman is notorious for torturing other directors with his penchant for perfectionism but here the shoe is on the other foot and he carries the baton expertly. Kudos must be given for his handling of the British all-star cast, especially the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the grande dame Maggie Smith. But he also imbues the movie with a light spirit and touch that is infectious and, though on the surface the film might seem a little too close for comfort to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which also starred Smith, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fooled. Quartet stands nicely on its own, thank you. The story revolves around a retirement home for musicians and opera singers that are facing financial ruin. Everything depends on the year-end fundraiser, which is always a salute to Verdi. Michael Gambon beautifully plays the director of the event and also present is three quarters of a famed quartetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Billy Connolly (who steals the movie), Tom Courtenay and Pauline Collins. Enter Smith, the fourth member of the group who years ago cheated on Courtenay and broke the quartet up. Afraid of the ravages of age and what it has done to her voice, she resists their attempts to reunite and Courtenay deals with his broken heart. The script is by Oscar winner Ronald Harwood based upon his stage play. It delivers in a quiet way, like the rest of the picture. Most of the supporting cast is actual musicians and opera singers and in a beautiful coda during the closing credits we are given a glimpse of their youth. Quartet is fine entertainment. tws

Steinbeckâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grapes of Wrath and Other Writingsâ&#x20AC;?: Literary Classics of the United States Series, 1996.


love to wander through our local library, The Community Library. Many times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enter with absolutely no idea of what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll egress with. I walk almost blindly past the front desk and the fireplace, letting some invisible guide lead me down whatever isle. This time I ended up with an old friendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;John Steinbeck. Having lived a great deal of my life in California and truly knowing Steinbeck country, I love reading his literature. It feels like home. This lovely book starts out with Steinbeckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poignant and sometimes surprising short stories of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Long Valleyâ&#x20AC;? which include â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Red Ponyâ&#x20AC;? and winds through â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grapes of Wrathâ&#x20AC;? and then leads to his beautiful reminiscence of his dear friend whom he loved so much, Ed Ricketts, and the subsequent â&#x20AC;&#x153;Log From The Sea of Cortezâ&#x20AC;? to the final stories of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Harvest Gypsiesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Starvation Under the Orange Trees.â&#x20AC;? Those two stories were his groundwork for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grapes of Wrath.â&#x20AC;? You can tell that this book had loving hands in its compilation. As well, extremely interesting are the final chronology notes. I had no idea of the many varied circles of which Steinbeck was a part. He was even asked by Jacqueline Kennedy to write a book about John F. Kennedy and refused. He received the Nobel Prize, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and wrote speeches for President Johnson. He traveled constantly and was involved in all sorts of business, theatrical and movie ventures. Well, he was a man who did not let any grass grow under his feet. So, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the grass grow under your feet and go borrow this book from the library for a good read. tws

Zions Bank to present Gem State Award, Pale Rider at Sun Valley Film Festival Meet Hailey Chamber of Commerce Membership Director, Kristy Heitzman Z chamber corner



have had such an amazing opportunity to work for a city and organization that I truly believe in. I was hired to be membership director of the Hailey Chamber of Commerce in September 2012. In that time I have had the chance to meet some of the most fascinating, creative and inspiring business owners, employees of Chamber business members, and volunteers. The common thread is that they all work and love this Valley that we all call home. We all have a hand in what we call community. I am very excited and enthusiastic about the people I meet every day. I want to share the stories about these people and how they started their businesses; what inspired them; and the reach they have, not only in our community but also in communities around the world. I want everyone to feel as proud of the people they pass by on the

sidewalks of our Valley as I do. That is why we at the Hailey Chamber want to introduce you to some of our members and give you a better understanding of their business, what influences them, and what great feats they have accomplished here and beyond. It is our hope that you learn something new about a business in our community and that you gain a new appreciation and understanding for the business around the corner and, additionally, that you may be inspired to try something new or even make a call and find out more about a business you never knew about. If nothing else, you can look around the next time you are in one of our local businesses and smile as broadly and proudly as I do when I acknowledge the faces of the people whom make up the unique demographics of our Valley. tws

Bill Grant Skis on 81st Birthday STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

It was Grantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first time back on skis since he suffered a head injury in a skiing accident 14 years ago on March 19, 1999, that left him unable to speak and with limited ability to stand or walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know exactly what happened,â&#x20AC;? reminisces his wife Betty Grant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was skiing down Limelight and fell. People who saw him cross I-80 said he looked as if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been shot out of a cannon.â&#x20AC;? It was Edward Sellers, a ski instructor with Higher Groundâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;formerly Sun Valley Adaptive Sportsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;who suggested they take Bill skiing for his birthday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to sense what Bill thinks of the whole thing as Sellers and Jeff Pitts outfit him in gloves and helmet. But he looks a little nervous, repeatedly turning his head away from those trying to give him a pep talk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m excited,â&#x20AC;? says Higher Groundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Program Director Cara Barnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is possibly an emotional time. I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little nervousâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be after all these years. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful day so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see.â&#x20AC;? Sellers and Pitts help the 5foot-11 man make the transition from his Breezy 510 wheelchair to a Mountain Man bi-ski, which resembles a bucket seat atop two snazzy shaped skis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what you used to have to do for us girls,â&#x20AC;? his daughter Theresa Grant tells him as they strap him in. The two men push Bill out to the Quarter Dollar lift, set him on the chair between them and within seconds Bill is soaring above the myriad of youngsters making pizza-like snowplow turns below. Theresa, who flew in from Tanzania where she operates a Making a Difference orphanage, rides one chairlift behind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wanting him to try this for a long time, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if it was possible,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He spends so much time in the wheelchair doing nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to see him get out in the sunshine.â&#x20AC;? Once off the chair, Sellers and Pitts waste no time getting down to business. Sellers pushes Bill and the bi-ski off the cat track and makes giant sweeping turns at a pace so fast that Theresa worries that she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to get a picture. Bill grunts as he cruises past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing,â&#x20AC;? Theresa says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reacting.â&#x20AC;?

Jeff Pitts gives Bill Grant a ride as Edward Sellers watches.


Betty Grant reminisces about the afternoon as her husband Bill is called on to blow out the candles on his birthday cake.

K2 skis, ready to head up the lift with her husband. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls asked me what I expected to accomplish. I thought it would be exciting to see how he reactsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after all, we live in ski country. Even just getting to Dollar Mountain was an accomplishment,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I introduced Bill to skiing. We used to ski Dollar together,â&#x20AC;? she adds, as she follows her husband on the chairlift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always skied together except for the day he was hurt. I was in Fairfield that day.â&#x20AC;? At top, Sellers takes Bill for another ride as Betty skis alongside. Just for fun, he does a wheelie with Bill, exacting a note of glee from Betty. With the warm sun and enchanting snow conditions, Sellers decides to turn it up a notch and soon the group is heading to the top of Dollar Mountain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wheee!â&#x20AC;? Betty exclaims as they head down Seppâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bowl. But the punctuation point to the day comes back at Carolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dollar Mountain Lodge as the group gathers around pepperoni pizza and Better Than Sex Chocolate Cake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, how did you like that,

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been wanting him to try this for a long time, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if it was possibleâ&#x20AC;Śitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to see him get out in the sunshine. â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Theresa Grant Bill? Ready to go again?â&#x20AC;? Sellers asks him. For the first time all afternoon, Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lips crinkle upwards in a smile and a twinkle shines in his eye as he shakes his head in the affirmative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Skiing, pizza, beerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to like?!â&#x20AC;?

to Sun Valley in a couple years. Seventy-four percent of those in the audience said they’d like to see Sun Valley press to be designated as a mountain bike training site, as well. The audience, given three choices, also cast 65 percent of its votes for freestyle designation; 51 percent, snowboard; 39 percent, alpine; and 35 percent, ice skating. Healthcare providers, from chiropractors to St. Luke’s, may be able to tap into increased demand for services as some of

these things come to fruition, Griffith said. And retail businesses should benefit from the influx of more people. “The economic impact—you can’t buy this,” he said. Hailey resident Tim Hamilton said he can’t wait to see the spin-off from Sun Valley’s new designation. “When we see the U.S. Ski Team rollerblading down the bike path, it’s going to be a show stopper!” tws

Retirement Distributions FOR THE WEEKLY SUN


or those who have successfully accumulated retirement assets and lived past their 70th birthday, there is a federal tax requirement that can affect their retirement withdrawal strategy. The Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) mandates that a minimum percentage of assets held in tax-qualified accounts (think IRA) must be withdrawn in each tax year. This distribution must start by April 1 of the year following the year one turns 70 1/2. The penalty for overlooking this requirement is steep. I have seen the tax penalty exceed 2 percent of all assets held in the affected IRA or 401(k) account. Unfortunately, this regulation goes into effect at a time when some retiree’s are least able to deal with additional complexity in their finances. For successful savers that reach age 70 without needing to withdraw money from their tax-qualified account, the RMD can be an unexpected obligation. In my experience, most financial institutions make an effort to help their clients avoid RMD penalties. I have personally visited with a handful of clients to remind them that they need to address this distribution prior to the approaching April 1 deadline. I also help them prepare for the fact that their required minimum distributions are subject to ordinary income taxes and are not eligible for a rollover to another retirement plan or IRA. This personal touch is a quality I suggest you seek when engaging the services of a financial advisor.

March 6, 2013

I have also seen what can happen when the institution holding the tax-qualified account takes a passive role in this regard. I recently assisted a 74-year-old retiree that held his IRA with another financial institution. During my initial analysis of this client’s retirement assets I was surprised to learn that he had not received a single RMD distribution. Even more distressing was the fact that he had not even received a notification from the institution that he was subject to the RMD. I can still hear the anguish in his voice when he asked me why didn’t they tell him that he was required to liquidate a portion of this IRA. This cautionary example is especially relevant for do-it-yourself savers that have shunned assistance from investment professionals. Getting a professional to review your portfolio can be particularly beneficial as you near retirement. It is also important to clarify, if you are subject to an RMD, if you or a spouse have turned 70 in the last 18 months.

love kale and my bird, Bandit, loves kale. Hugo, my toy poodle, does not. Oh well, Hugo and I don’t always like the same foods. Funny, though, I don’t remember seeing as much kale as that being displayed recently in our markets. Well, I’m glad it’s so readily available because there’s so much you can do with it and Bandit tells me that it’s extremely healthy for you. Thanks, Bandit. Additionally, I’ll tell you that I like kale raw for a salad as well as cooked in various ways as in this recipe. Even if you don’t like kale that much, I think that you’ll enjoy it this way. So, here goes and, as usual: Enjoy and Bon Appètit!!!

Kale Soup with Potato Makes 4 servings Ingredients: 1 large baking potato, cut into eighths 1 clove garlic, lightly smashed 5 C. vegetable stock (but you can also use chicken or beef stock) About 3 C. roughly chopped kale leaves (well rinsed and stripped from the stalks before chopping) 1 tsp. FRESH marjoram (the fresh makes such a difference but dried will do and you can use oregano instead if you wish) 1 bay leaf Salt and pepper to taste Instructions: Combine the potato, garlic and 2 C. of the stock in a medium saucepan and turn the heat to medium-high. Cook until the

potato is soft, about 15 minutes; cool slightly. While doing the above, cook the kale in the remaining stock (3 C.) with the marjoram (oregano) and bay leaf until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaf. Now I use a potato masher to mash the potato mixture before putting it in a blender to puree it. Next, puree it. The mixture will be thick. Stir it into the simmering kale, season with salt and pepper, and heat through. Serve immediately Additional versions: Beat 2 eggs with 1/2 C. shredded Parmesan cheese. Add this mixture at the last minute into your soup. There will be bits of egg and Parmesan in it and it’ll be delicious. If you just do the eggs, that’s a bit Greek or Chinese. The Parmesan gives it an Italian twist. For a Japanese version, add a bit of soy sauce, sesame oil and a dash of lime. You can even add a bit of green chili sauce. You can also add some sliced chicken sausage in the soup to make it a bit of the Portuguese version. See how versatile just a bit of potato and kale can be?

Michael Kaeshammer Trio BY KAREN BOSSICK


t’s only fitting that Ketchum’s nexStage Theatre will be transformed into a cabaret complete with beer, wine and food platters for Friday’s 6:30 p.m. performance by the Michael Kaeshammer Trio. After all, Kaeshammer (pronounced “case-hammer”) is a singer-songwriter-pianist-foodie who can be found mixing up a batch of kale soup or gnocchi in lemon-spinach sauce when he’s not concocting new songs. “Currently, I’m very much into French food and wines—Julia Childs’ cookbook should be a staple in any kitchen!” he said. “Music, food, family… that’s life. Not just a part of life, that’s life!” If you get the idea life is one giant party for Kaeshammer, you would be right. The German-born Kaeshammer discovered New Orleans style boogie-woogie and stride piano when he was in his early teens. Soon he was busting out of the classical music repertoire in which he had trained. After moving with his family to Canada in the mid-1990s he began playing at jazz and blues festivals from coast to coast. Critics have compared him to a young Harry Connick, Jr. for his energetic, fiery playing, smooth singing, showmanship and happy-on-life feeling. Though hailed as a jazz artist, he, drummer Mark McLean and bass player Marc Rogers actually serve up a gumbo of jazz, soul, pop and rhythm and blues that owes its flavor to the likes of Billy Joel and Paul McCartney as much as Fats Waller and James Booker. “Sometimes I’m advertised as a ‘jazz’ artist.

Donations Being Taken for Displaced Family BY KAREN BOSSICK


onations are being taken to help a Bellevue family get back on their feet following a fire that swept through their kitchen Saturday night. Jesse, Aby, 4-year-old Taitym—a.k.a. Tater Tot—and 3-year-old Colson Rinella are staying with Aby’s brother Brent Bellon until they can find alternative living. But they need clothing and other donations. “For the past few years, this family has worked so hard for everything they had and now it is a complete loss—furniture, clothing, pictures, toys, food, memories, etc.,” said Andrea Walton, a friend of the family. “I’m asking for all persons to dig deep and donate what they can to help this family in their time of need.” Bellevue Fire Chief Greg Beaver said the fire started when a

stove burner was left on, causing cooking utensils to melt. The fire caused smoke damage in the kitchen. But he said the home should be made livable again. “It’s amazing what the fire restoration people can do nowadays,” he said. The children have already been supplied with plenty of clothing, but Jesse and Aby could use some. Jesse wears size 30-31 jeans and size large shirts. Aby is a size 0-2. She wears small shirts. Jesse works for the Hailey Police Department. Aby, the daughter of Karen and Elbie Bellon, is a stay-at-home mom who grew up in the Wood River Valley. The Rinellas were called “the storybook Habitat for Humanity family” when they bought their home with the help of Blaine County Habitat in May 2011. They had bought a 1,100square-foot starter home in Bel-


levue in 2007, expecting to make improvements and sell the house a few years later, making enough profit to buy a larger house and pay off student loans. Then the economic crisis hit. Jesse was laid off from his construction job and funding dried up for Aby’s job with Young Life, a nonprofit Christian organization that works with teens. When the Rinellas were faced with a short sale, Habitat bought the house, installed a new roof and sold the house back to the Rinellas at a price they could afford. A donation drop has been established at Calvary Bible Church, 102 Coyote Bluff Drive on Hailey’s north side. Walton is fielding donation questions at 208-720-8453. “Gift certificates to grocery stores, money, anything that can be donated would be great,” she said. tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I moved to a new city with a new job and started looking for an apartment. Little did I know it would be so expensive. This immediately made me rethink how to live in the city. I found an ad for a room to rent in a large 4bedroom loft. It's with a group of professional guys who are sharing the space. The plus side is they have an 85" projection screen television in the main room. I mean, is there any better way to watch sports? This loft would be far better than anything I could ever get on my own and it’s at a price I can afford. However, I've never lived with roommates before and it has me wondering if I'm going to get along with all of them. I could use some suggestions on things to consider before I take this place. Right now I'm blinded by the idea of 85 inches of the sports channel!

work. Living with roommates can be quite different than living alone. Not only will you be sharing the bathroom, kitchen and all the living areas, but you will also be spending time in the house with people you just met. Carry: The best thing you can do is spend a little time with the guys before you write the rent check. Find out about their schedules, when they're home or how late they stay up. Also ask about house rules or cleaning schedules. With four guys, a sports channel and a big screen television, the living room could look as messy as a sports bar after a big game. Cash: It would also be a good

idea to find out about the rules of the television. Since it seems to be a main focus of the space, you should know if there are limits to its use. It might be difficult to get a good night's sleep if the television is on late at night. Carry: If you get along with everyone, this opportunity could work out well for you. Since you're in a new city, living with others is a great way to meet new people and make some great friends. With an 85" television, they are sure to have a few people over. Cash: The only question that remains is who’s in charge of the remote control on game day?

Sometimes you just never know who your roommate will turn out to be. Some of today's top celebrities once shared a place together. Actor Tommy Lee Jones roomed with former Vice President Al Gore at Harvard University. Comedian and actor Robin Williams was a roommate to Christopher Reeves when they both attended Julliard. Even actor Mel Gibson once shared a place with Geoffrey Rush, who played Captain Barbossa in Pirates of the Caribbean. It seems some people who share a room also share successful careers.

When my roommate moved out, I met all sorts of people in my quest for someone to replace him. Most were nice, but it was the last guy to show up that seemed to fit perfectly. We were both stereotypical bachelors. Like me, he only did his laundry when he was out of clothes, and only cleaned his room for dates or when his parents came to visit. As we toured the apartment, he explained that he would only need the kitchen once a week. "That's odd," I said, "Is that because you work late?" "Not really," he commented back. "It's just that all the takeout joints are closed on Mondays." (Thanks to Jerry A.)

"If you sit too close to the TV, you could hurt your eyes." This is what many of us were told growing up. But is it true? The Canadian Association of Optometrists says that close viewing of a television is generally not harmful. The more important factor is to have proper lighting in the room to minimize the contrast of the television and reduce eyestrain. However, they also suggest that children who sit too close to the television should have their eyes examined since it's often an indicator of nearsightedness. •
