T Dollar Mountain will close for the season at the end of the day on Sunday but not before hosting a number of free events, including a Family-Cross Race, Junkyard Rail Jam and Sunday’s Pond Skim.

Dollar Daze & Balderdash This Weekend STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


ollar Mountain and Seattle Ridge will bid adieu to Sun Valley’s 76th ski season at the close of the day on Sunday—but not without a big splash. Literally. The Sun Valley Ski Patrol will present Dollar Daze Third Annual Pond Skim at 10 a.m. Sunday at the bottom of Dollar Mountain. Entry is free. Costumes are encouraged. There’ll be live music to add to the vibe, and a barbecue, too. The Pond Skim is among several events that make up a weekend of fun events for participants and spectators alike. A Family-Cross Race will be held at 10 a.m. on Dollar Mountain and a Junkyard Rail Jam will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday. There is no entry fee for either. Participants need to sign up for the events at the Dollar Ticket Office on a first-come, first-served basis. Baldy will stay open through April 15, with the exception of Seattle Ridge. And Sun Valley’s bigger mountain doesn’t plan to go out with a whimper. There’ll be buy-one/get-one-free lift tickets that last weekend, a Balderdash fun race/fire hose giant slalom on Lower River Run, kid’s adventures in the Adventure Parks, “Last Run” sales at Pete Lane’s and Brass Ranch, live music by Old Death Whisper and DJ McClain at River Run, and live music on the Warm Springs patio, as well. And, of course, another barbecue. Late-season discount prices are in effect through the end of the season. tws

im Filgate is used to his kitchen bouncing around. After all, he’s been a private chef on a yacht for nine years. Serving as chef on a yacht allows him to live the lifestyle of the wealthy, Filgate said, as he waterskis, wakeboards and scuba dives while touring ports from Alaska to South America and through the Panama Canal up to Nova Scotia. But the work often entails 12- to 14hour days. Not only does this Ketchum man cook for the clients and crew in a kitchen galley no wider than some of the fish he catches, he does all the shopping, ties lines when the boat docks and drives the boat when the captain needs a break. Often he’s even reeled in a 60-pound halibut, taking it from rod to the plate. He’s fixed dinner from what he’s caught in crab or shrimp pots and lobster traps that day. At the same time, he’s learned to make do with what’s at hand since he can’t run to the market for items on a recipe card. “You can’t guarantee you’re going to get fish every day so you have to plan a justin-case meal. You have to be on your toes all the time,” he says. “You have to plan your perishables for a long trip out at sea. And, if you’re going to Mexico, you don’t want to buy beef in Mexico, so you buy it in the United States and package it up. “You’re up at dawn to cook breakfast, you clean up and prep for lunch, then you prepare hors d’oeuvres and dinner. If you’re quick enough, you may find time to go for a walk or take a quick nap.” Filgate became interested in cooking when he took a cafeteria class in high school in his hometown of Victoria, B.C., baking Rice Krispie bars and preparing such dishes as lasagna. “I took it because I got to eat a free lunch and that meant I didn’t have to make lunch in the morning so I got to sleep in an extra five minutes. I was named top culinary student and so when a friend suggested I join him at culinary school, it made sense. I loved that I was

always learning something new and it was fun,” he recounts. “I didn’t have to drag my butt to work. And I loved the rush of adrenalin you get in a restaurant—there’s nothing like it.” One of Filgate’s first jobs was at a golf resort in the Cayman Islands. He not only learned to golf but he learned new cooking techniques from around the world. He learned to manage a kitchen and plan menus based on food costs. And he won the Cayman Island National Culinary Competition with a menu that included lobster bisque, pickled salad with fried plantain, pigeon pea salsa and other dishes Filgate decided he wanted to drop anchor three years ago after meeting Heather Hammond, assistant director of the Trailing of the Sheep Festival, on a blind date. In a bid to settle down, Filgate asked his yacht client if he might cook at the client’s Sun Valley home for a ski season. “I thought Idaho would be prairie, like Saskatchewan. I couldn’t believe I’d have a mountain in my back yard,” he said. “That ski season went into summer and then into another ski season—we love the fact that you can go in any direction and camp, hike and mountain bike. I’d work here full time if I could, but I’m still doing some traveling.” As Tim Filgate the landlubber, Filgate has started focusing not so much on

ocean-going fish, like halibut, but more on dishes like stuffed trout, salmon Wellington, even winter vegetable salads with roast carrots and beets. He has prepared flavorful lamb sliders and other dishes for the Trailing of the Sheep Festival the past couple of years, donated his culinary talents to the Young Life auction, and baked lemon tarts for The Community Library’s Moveable Feast. He’s also lending his support to the proposed culinary institute. His dream job would be pairing his cooking with estate management. “When you work on a yacht, you learn to be a handyman,” he said. “Just try to repair a dishwasher in a town of a

Janss Pro-Am to Feature Junior Pros BY KAREN BOSSICK


olin Waycott has been so busy training for ski racing for the past 11 years that he hasn’t had much time to free ski with his dad. That will change this weekend when The Community School senior joins his father, Richard Waycott, CEO of the California Almond Board, in the annual Janss Pro-Am ski race. The two will race together on the Seattle Lumberjacks team where Waycott will serve as Junior Pro. “I’m very excited. I’ve helped them set up tents and things for the event before, but I’ve never gotten to be a part of it,� said Colin. “And the last time I really got to ski with my dad was over Christmas break so I’m looking forward to that, too!� The 15th annual Janss ProAm Classic, sponsored by Stifel Nicolaus Weisel, kicks off with a Pro Welcome Party at the Olympic Bar at Michel’s Christiania before segueing into two days of racing on Lower Warm Springs on Friday and Saturday. It will also feature a Classic Martini Party at Whiskey Jacques’ sponsored by American Harvest

Organic Spirits and an awards banquet at the Sun Valley Limelight Room. Costumes will shine the spotlight on a favorite era, sports team, film, book or TV show. The event raises money for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, which gives out about $100,000 in scholarships each year to enable 500 athletes to participate on its alpine, crosscountry, freestyle and snowboard teams. This year’s Janss Pros include Casey Puckett, Langely McNeal, Scott Macartney, Libby Ludlow, Kyle Wieche, Chris Puckett, Christin Cooper, Jonna Mendes and Zach Crist. Each team will also have a Junior Pro, a current Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation athlete. Colin Waycott, who plans to attend Bowdoin College in Maine, says he’s treasured being with his friends on the ski team. “Ski racing has taught me to be pretty good with my time and it’s taught me how to react to things. You spend hours and hours practicing adapting to changing terrain. My coaches are always telling me, ‘Send it and don’t give up.’ They tell me to go for anything,� Colin said.

Colin Waycott


Colin’s mother, Rebecca Waycott, said Colin’s experience on the ski team has been wonderful for him. “It’s pretty much a non-stop thing as they train year-round,

not just during the ski season,� she said. “It’s not just about winning. It’s the team spirit. They support each other so much and learn to manage their time. And they have to keep up good


grades.� And what will Colin say if he gets a chance to coach those on his team this weekend? “Tough question,� he paused. “I’d say, ‘Go fast!’ � tws



ob Wiederrick has already made his contribution to public art. His giant bicycle sculpture was a monster hit with youngsters and their camera-toting parents at Ketchum Town Plaza last summer before it was moved to Sturtevants in Hailey. Now Wiederrick is contributing to public art in the Wood River Valley in another way. He’s been collecting aluminum cans and recycling them, giving the money to the Hailey Arts Commission, which endowed Hailey with Mark Stasz’s “Timeless Portal� sculpture at Hailey’s entryway a couple of years ago. Wiederrick started out small, recycling a small container of cans that he collected by word of mouth for $33. He then advertised in The Weekly Sun for donations and soon readers had filled an 8-foot-tall bin at his welding shop near Power Engineers. A trip to Twin Falls netted $259 for the arts commission. “I’ve got people bringing in

cans clear from Fairfield. And, of course, Ketchum, Hailey and Bellevue,� he said. Power Engineers now donates the empty cans generated from their three break rooms. And Wiederrick is hopeful more businesses, restaurants and bars will help with donations. Got cans? Wiederrick will be happy to recycle them for you. Just take them to 4051 Glenbrook Drive in Hailey.

ou might not expect voodoo dolls to be brought up at a discussion on how to get involved in your community. But, then, you never know how what twists and turns conversation will take when you get a group of women together. That was the case at the last meeting of Women INC., a social and networking group for women held at Iconoclast Books in Ketchum as State Sen. Michelle Stennett, State Rep. Wendy Jaquet and School Board Trustee Kathryn Graves shared their thoughts on getting involved. Jaquet described how she was a latchkey kid not because her mother worked but because her mother was always volunteering on school boards, in art museums and hospitals. And this set the stage for Jaquet’s own foray into government. “My mother said the only way you can make a change is through the political process,” Jaquet recalled. “Everything we do is political, whether you’re on a board or whether you’re trying to get power poles placed underground or whether you’re planting more trees to aid the environment.” Jaquet also talked about serving as House Minority Leader for 10 years over a Democratic contingent so small it could meet in a phone booth. She talked about how she was dubbed “the geranium lady” because she bestowed geraniums on fellow lawmakers who got a little nasty. She talked about how voters in Camas and Gooding counties decided she was okay if she could run Wagon Days. And, yes, she broached voodoo dolls in a recollection that dated back to her childhood. “It’s all about relationships and being real,” she said. Relationships are why Jeffra Syms and Mary Sfingi of Zions Bank started Women INC.: to fill what they felt was a void in the community for women who wanted educational, social and networking opportunities. It’s geared toward both professional women and women raising children at home, said Sfingi. The advisors, who include Sally Boettger, Toni Bogue, Sarah Hedrick and Lori Johnston, each invited five women to the first event—a kick-off with a speaker from Zions Bank talking about gender roles in the workplace. The second event, “Girls and Grilling,” took place at Sego and the making-a-difference discussion at Iconoclast Books. The next event—a free recep-

tion and discussion on “How to Avoid a Broken Heart: Women’s Heart Health”—starts 5:30 tonight at Zions Resort Bank, 291 Washington Ave. in Ketchum. Stennett noted that Idaho ranks among the top 10 states in volunteerism, with 65 million hours in 2010. “What is not quantifiable is the simple acts of kindness we do for one another in the community, especially as time becomes shorter and more accelerated,” she said. “Volunteerism is more important than ever today because it’s something we can’t do via social media,” noted Ketchum artist and activist Deb Bohrer. The audience, which attended the last Women INC. gathering, included a newcomer from Seattle and a new mom with a four-month-old who shared how she was thinking about what kind of mom she wanted to be for her baby. “This is so exciting for me because this is part of who I am,” said bookstore owner Sarah Hedrick. “We’re a town that’s all about workouts and zero body fat. It’s more challenging to be a professional woman here than in more urban settings.” Sfingi said she knew Women INC. had struck a nerve as she listened to young women express the desire to find a way of networking with other women. “What we’re hoping is to see the women dictate and make this into what they want and need,” said Syms. “Zions Bank supports this financially but this is not a Zions function. This belongs to the women of the Valley. And we hope they’ll take the initiative to say, ‘Let’s do this…’ ” tws

Easter Brunch

If you like flambéed ice cream, you’d better head to the Sunday Brunch at the Lodge Dining Room this Sunday. The Easter brunch will be the Lodge Dining Room’s last Sunday brunch according to Sun Valley’s Reservation Office with the exception, perhaps, of a few special occasions. Sunday Brunch at the lodge has been a longstanding tradition in Sun Valley. The resort has long billed it as the finest brunch in the Northwest.


The Easter Bunny invites you to a hoppin’ good time in the Sun Valley Village, Friday, April 6. Village shops and Sun Valley Resort will host an eggstravaganza Easter egg hunt for children 10 years and younger, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Face painting at the Sun Valley Toy Store, music and surprise store discounts will add to the holiday celebration.

Galena to Close

Galena Lodge will close for the winter season on Sunday. But it will go out with a bang. There’ll be a Full Moon dinner on Friday and a Ride, Stride and Glide race on Saturday. An Easter egg hunt will be paired with Easter Brunch on Sunday.

Company of Fools Season to Include Charlie Brown

eutonic opera meets the Texas twang of heartbreaking country ballads. And the most famous little baldheaded kid in the world will take the stage during Company of Fools 17th season. Denise Simone and John Glenn announced the upcoming season to a couple hundred people who turned out Sunday for the Fools’ annual Fools Day party at The Liberty Theatre. The lineup: July 3-29: “Das Barbecu,” Jim Luigs and Scott Warrender’s Texas-sized musical, condenses 14 hours of Wagner’s Ring Cycle into a two-hour spoof of big hair and big hats in which five people play everyone. “It’s like ice cold beer on a hot summer day, ‘Gotterdammerung’ on the grill.” Oct. 16-Nov. 3: “The Woman in Black,” Stephen Mallatrat’s spine-tingling ghost thriller, revolves around a menacing specter that haunts a small English town foreshadowing the death of children. The play is the second longest-running play in London after Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap.” “I’ll give you a warning: Seating will be limited because the audience will be on stage as the action takes place throughout the theatre,” said Simone. Dec. 11-30: “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” is Clark Gesner’s Broadway classic sporting memorable moments from the life of those in the “Peanuts” comic strip from Valentine’s Day to baseball season. Six student matinees will be offered. “Happiness is spending the holidays with Charlie Brown,” said Glenn. Feb. 13-March 2: “Distracted” centers on a mother’s efforts to find help for her 8-year-old boy who raps, swears and is just plain too much. “It asks: Are we so tuned into our info-rich, 24/7 world that we’ve tuned out what matters?” said Simone. “We did one performance of this for a private function last year and the response was electrifying. People haven’t stopped talking about it.” In addition, The Second City, Chicago’s legendary comedy troupe, will be back Jan. 11 and 12. There are just two, rather than three, performances this year. So if you feel like LOL, better get your tickets quick. Hailey City Council members Carol Brown, Pat Cooley and Martha “Beaver” Burke set a new standard for theater dress, appearing as they did in ballroom gowns and Groucho Marx faces to deliver the annual proclamation marking April 1 as

Former Hailey Mayor Al Lindley turned out for the Fools party in his best Fools hat.

Fools Day in the City of Hailey. “Think we’re overdressed?” Brown asked. “Not for the Fools, given their penchant for doing things over the top,” replied Cooley. “We’d better get out of here,” Burke added. “We came to watch the Fools, not be a fool.” Blaine County School Superintendent Lonnie Barber praised Company of Fools for its Stages of Wonder program that, he said, helps students understand who they are inside and unleashes their creativity. Simone recounted pitching the creativity program to former Superintendent Jim Lewis. “He thought a minute and said, ‘You know what, kid, you’re in luck. Missoula Children’s Theatre can’t make it this year,’ and that’s how we got in,” she said. “We’re so blessed we have a valley where you don’t have to make the case that arts enrich our children.” As the program wound down, Dora Levin and Marilyn Schwartz were already plotting to attend “The Woman in Black.” “I like mysteries,” said Levin. “And it’ll be fun to see how they handle putting the audience on stage. They did that with ‘Waiting for Godot’ and it was real good.” Jim Gaz said he can’t wait to see “Distracted.” “And I’d really like to see the Texas musical, too, because I used to do musicals,” he added. tws

ood River High School junior Emmie Altermatt is a proud member of Idaho Drug-Free Youth, a school sponsored group that works for drug awareness among teens and their parents. The organization has twenty members in the high school branch and about twenty members in the middle school club. For Altermatt, the experience and membership is something she couldn’t be more proud of. “I love being drugfree,� she said. “I’m just not into drugs and I’ve seen what it does to other people. Unfortunately, it’s really big in the Valley. But what people don’t understand is that it really messes with your body because a kid’s brain is still developing and drugs and alcohol are lethal to the process. Being drug-free is an accomplishment and I’m proud to say it. It also gains trust and respect with my teachers.� But to stay drug-free students have to be creative with their time. “You need to find other things to do like play sports or go to the movies or go to the pool. There’s a lot more than just going to parties, but a lot of kids don’t try to find it. What it comes down to is the choices that you make with your life. We hope we’re bringing more knowledge to kids with things like Drug Awareness Week at school. We made posters and signed kids up to be pledge to be drug-free and gave them bracelets to wear to show their unity.� Idaho Drug-Free Youth is a partnership of students, the Police Academy at the high school and the Hailey Police Department. “We meet once every two weeks and brainstorm

as to how to attack the problem in our community. To be in the group you pledge to be drug free and we undergo testing – once when you join and then we draw names out of a hat. I seem to get it every time,� she said with a laugh. “Usually the police officers hold board meetings and talk about how to attract more kids. We also plan fun activities for the members of the group which is state funded and serves as a reward for being drug-free and plan how to get the message out.� The activities are far ranging and also serve as a tool to attract new members. “Recently, we went paint balling and we went to a Steelheads hockey game. Last summer we took a trip to Yellowstone and went rafting on the Salmon River. Some kids are also going to go to a Utah Jazz basketball game. The best part is that you get to hang out with

all your friends that share the same interests and share the message.� They also have plans for some future projects. “We are going to have a reality party for the parents. What we’ll do is find a house and pretend that we’re partying. Then the parents can walk through and witness what their kids are doing. It’s a great idea because a lot of the parents don’t understand what’s going on.� Most of her time, though, is put into dance, which Altermatt has been doing with Footlight Dance Centre since she was four years old and where she maintains a rigorous schedule of seven classes a week for an hour and a half as well as teaching little kids. Her best friend’s mom was a dance teacher and she introduced her to it. “I started with ballet and really loved it but I was too energetic and for ballet you really have to be able to sit still and be patient and follow what the teacher says. I got into jazz when I was older and it’s my favorite of all. I love ballet, too, but jazz isn’t as structured and you get to play with it and make it your own. My favorite part, though, is performing. I have rituals to ease stage fright before I go on, but once you’re out on the stage, all your nerves go away. You just do the movements and what you have practiced so hard.� What Altermatt has really practiced is discipline toward drug and alcohol abuse and that has made her community a better place. tws

Six players ended up with 2.0 points, including Adam, after he successfully beat a higher-rated player and drew against two others. Games were G/60, meaning that each player had one hour to make all their moves and the whole game could last up to two hours. If a player reaches the end of the time before his opponent, he loses the match. Desmond Porth played in the

Challenger Section and won with a perfect 4.0 points! He won all his matches, including one against Kory Puderbaugh, whom he lost to the weekend before in the State Scholastic Championships. Winners of the Challenger Section earn a berth to the Championship Section the next year. In addition to award plaques, winners were presented with art prints from Idaho artist Dan Looney and provided chess books from the library of the late Glen Buckendorf. Casual chess is played every Monday at the Power House in Hailey, and the next local tournament is a K-5th grade Wood River Valley Elementary Championship.

Beach Party at The Community Library

t was an unusual beach party, what with one little girl wearing a swimsuit while others were dressed in ski and snowboard outfits. But, nevertheless, The Community Library threw a

beach party last week for those who remained in Ketchum for Spring Break. Gracie Gibson led Nick Maumus, Elias Kemp and others on a clamshell run that served as the beach party’s version of musical chairs, winning their choice of books as prizes.

Brock and Audra Mary were among those who posed for pictures as beachniks. And the children fished for chocolate fish and other snacks. “A beach day in the middle of winter is okay,” said Gibson. tws

Ski Season Starts and Ends Wacky BY KAREN BOSSICK


he two-foot-deep crater in the snow underneath the chairlift nearing the top of Christmas Bowl told the story. The crater, the size of a small trampoline, had been one of numerous explosives set off by the Sun Valley Ski Patrol Saturday morning following a night of heavy rain that had wiped out more than a foot of snow that had fallen earlier. Craters were all over the mountain, including the top of the Sunnyside run. Lift ticket checker John Newcomb warned us as we boarded the chair that morning to stay on groomed runs. “And if you see anybody above you on a slope they’re not supposed to be on…get out of there!” In case you were off on Spring Break in Hawaii or Disneyland

or even Italy last week, let it be said that last week was anything but boring around here: three days of perfect spring skiing with corn snow and dancing to Doug Allen’s Elvis impersonation on the River Run patio; a few days of spring “powder” skiing that brought over a foot of snow to Baldy; and, then, Friday evening’s dusty rain that sent cars scurrying to the car wash and left the fresh snow on the top third of Baldy grabby while the bottom two-thirds of the mountain was creamy smooth. Mark Thorson was skiing with Glen Plake’s dad and several freestyle skiers whose plans to shoot ski footage had been scuttled by the rainy weather that left Sun Valley resembling Whistler. “I’ve never seen a winter like this,” said Thorson, who has been skiing Sun Valley for 34

years. Lift ticket checker Kelly Thurston and ski instructor Bonnie Wetmore concurred. “I just wake up every morning to see what the day’s going to bring,” Wetmore said. In some ways this was a fitting ending to a snow season that has been perfectly wacky all over the United States. Thankfully, everything had returned to normal by Monday—if we can remember what normal is, that is. Can’t wait to see what next year will bring. tws

Last week saw some phenomenal skate skiing on the Harriman Trail, along with a couple days of slogging through an inch or two of new snow. Good skiing should continue this week. The flats offer ample snow for corn skiing, as well.

Avid weekly paper reader, Susan Littlefield, who has lived in the Valley for over 35 years, claims that laughter is the best medicine. She creates these scenarios in her husbands N-scale model railroad.


irst a disclaimer: David Cronenberg, the director of the film A Dangerous Method (recently released on DVD), is far and away my favorite filmmaker. This, of course, makes me slightly biased in my assessment of his new movie. I’ve been enthralled by the arc of his career from his early sci-fi horror films like Scanners and The Fly through his ambitious films like Dead Ringers and Naked Lunch and his recent successes like A History of Violence. To some, Cronenberg is a modern-day Alfred Hitchcock (although no one will equal the great master) by delving beneath the surface and attacking us in our subconscious. How fitting that his new film explores the complex relationship between the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud, and his younger associate, Carl Jung. Although not his best film, A Dangerous Method is strong work and, though it has been criticized as being too talky, what would you expect when exploring the theories of these two great men? It is also ostensibly a love story, which makes fitting sense for a film that expertly explores human sexuality. Set before World War I, the true story follows Jung’s introduction to a Russian patient played by Keira Knightley who will also become his lover and later a psychoanalyst of note. At the same time we follow the birth and death of the legendary Oedipal relationship between Freud and Jung, both played brilliantly by Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender, respectively. All three performances are superb, with Mortensen making his third straight collaboration with Cronenberg. But for Knightley, her fearless performance as the patient is far beyond anything she has done before. It is difficult playing someone suffering from hysteria, and Knightley walks a fine line that, had she tripped over it, would have turned her performance into ridicule. There is also a fine screenplay from the brilliant English playwright Christopher Hampton based upon his play that had the criticism that the play would have worked better as a movie. Jung and Freud’s ideas changed the world and their relationship was epic. A Dangerous Method gives tws that story its due.

Silver Creek and the Big Wood River—two of Idaho’s prized fishing streams—are about to be featured on the TV show “On the Rise,” which airs on The Sportsman Channel. The program follows the wanderings of Montana outfitter and bona fide fishing bum Jed Fiebelkorn as he traverses the country in search of trout, salmon, steelhead, and kindred souls, including Trout Unlimited members who donate their time to protecting, reconnecting, restoring and sustaining America’s coldwater fisheries. This week, the program will zero in on Silver Creek, a spring water creek that has challenged the likes of Ernest Hemingway. Programs air at 6:30 a.m. Thursday, 4:30 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday. The show will examine Idaho’s “other” trout fishery where “townies rise trout on their lunch hour,” at 3 a.m. May 1, 6:30 a.m. May 3, 4:30 p.m. May 4 and 2 p.m. May 5. The program also looks at fishing in Tongass, Alaska; Pere Marquette in Michigan; Spring Creeks in Pennsylvania; Asheville, N.C.; the Smith River in California; the Rogue River in Oregon; and in Kauai.

Skin Rejuvenation and Facial Contour with Fat and Stem Cells BY TOM CRAIS, M.D., F.A.C.S.


hen I first started doing facelifts in 1977 I learned that we could reposition the skin such that we could markedly improve the neck face angle and we could diminish facial and eyelid wrinkles and redundancies by removing and tightening redundant, deflated and sagging skin. Since those early days I was always striving to obtain a natural appearance, avoiding the “done look.� Having received optimal training from some of the masters in facial rejuvenation, I felt that I was adequately prepared to do facial rejuvenation. However, after 12 years of practice, I was influenced by some “out-of-the-box�thinking American, European and South American plastic surgeons. I took a giant step forward, following their lead in doing what is called a subperiosteal vertical facelift. My results were even more natural, longer lasting and substantially avoided the “done look.� Like many aesthetic plastic surgeons, I started augmenting various areas of the face and hands with fat in the mid 1980s. During this last decade, the implantation of micro-sized fat particles and their accompanying stem cells and growth factors have been found to be yet another major step forward in facial rejuvenation. As always, in this profession,

progress in technique continues to evolve. Currently, it is clearly apparent that the arrival of this small particle-sized fat transfer to the face and hands allows for natural contours and even more youthful skin. The stem cells and growth factors associated with transfers and implantation of fat suctioned from the patient can be separated in three parts: 1) non-useful triglycerides; 2) volumizing fat; 3) stem cells with growth factors which, in fact, regenerate the tissues they come in contact with. The ability to separate the suctioned fat as such allows for improvement when implanted in contour irregularities resulting from loss of bone, muscle and skin mass and thereby recontouring a deflated and saggy appearance. When we restore volume in these deflated areas, skin is elevated and repositioned to more youthful locations, giving a more youthful appearance. This can be achieved by using the patient’s own fat or by using fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane, etc. When using fillers, it is quite easy because they come out of a readily available bottle “off the shelf.� When using fillers, the resulting effect is quite natural in restoring lift and fullness; however, the results lasts only six to 12 months and must therefore be repeated. When using autologous fat (from the patient) to rejuvenate the face or

Tom Crais, M.D., F.A.C.S

hands, the rejuvenation seems to remain for several years. The added benefit is that the skin seems to become more youthful and loses some of the effects of sun and time by diminishing pigmentary changes and wrinkles. As noted, these effects are noted in hands and faces treated with fat and fat stem cells. In my 35 years of doing facial rejuvenation I have never had more youthful, natural-appearing results since combining subperiosteal vertical facelifts with autologous fat transfers. Likewise, rejuvenation of the aging hand is currently at an all-time high. tws

a recipe from a Sun reader from Margot’s

nutrition educator, I always know that I can rely on this recipe to please a crowd. As part of the Food and Fun program at The Community School, we recently served this dish for lunch to the elementary students. They said it was “the best lunch ever!” I hope you enjoy it also. You can find many more healthy and delicious family recipes at my nutrition and cooking website, tws


Fiesta Casserole by Kathryn Guylay • 2.5 C. (dry) brown rice • 2 (16-oz.) jars of your favorite salsa • 4 cans (15 oz.) of beans—it’s fun to use various types to make it colorful: kidney, pinto and black • 2 (16-oz.) containers of cottage cheese • Juice of 1-2 limes


table to yours


’m excited to share this recipe with you, as I hope it will become a healthy, delicious and inexpensive “go-to” recipe in your household for years to come. I know it plays that role in ours, from the moment years ago when my then-toddler (now 11-year-old) daughter helped me to create this dish in the kitchen. The base is beans and brown rice—we now often substitute the rice with quinoa—and the addition of healthy fresh cilantro greens and salsa. The trick to keeping the casserole moist is the addition of cottage cheese, which offers a great consistency. It is a warming “comfort food” on a chilly day. We usually serve it with avocado and some extra veggies to round out the taste and nutritional profile. My favorite thing about this recipe is that people of all ages simply love it! As a nutritionist and volunteer

• 2 tsp. chili powder • 2 tsp. cumin • One bunch of fresh cilantro, washed, rinsed and chopped • 2 bags (8 oz.) of Mexican-blend shredded cheese—you can use less if you are watching calories/saturated fat, or add more if you are a big cheese lover like I am!

First, invite friends over, as this recipe will yield many servings (at least a dozen, if not more). Cook the rice (or quinoa) ahead of time. My favorite method is using a rice cooker. When the rice is done, add the rest of the ingredients, minus the shredded cheese, in a very large bowl. You can then cook the casserole in the oven (cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes) or place the mixed ingredients into a slow cooker and leave on “Low” for several hours. About 5-10 minutes before you are ready to serve your dish, sprinkle the shredded cheese on top until melted. Plate with avocadoes, crunchy carrots, extra salsa, extra cilantro, and/or a simple side salad. Enjoy! (If you would like to see a video of this dish being prepared, please visit Scroll down towards the end of the videos to find “FiestaCasserole”).

Overnight Scrambled Eggs Bake for an Easter Breakfast or Brunch BY MARGOT VAN HORN

Call for Details 726-3588

G\YYdg_]b  7cUh:UWhcfm 



ggs are supposedly a symbol of fertility and new life. They play a big part in most of our Easter traditions. I do like eggs and, somehow or other, the combination of eggs and ham always seem so appetizing. Maybe that’s why I got such special enjoyment out of reading Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham to my little ones. So as “Sam-I-Am” recommends, and for your family’s gourmet enjoyment, herewith is an easy egg and ham dish to prepare the night before Easter and then to pop into the oven on Easter morn whilst the little ones are hunting for their eggs. It’ll make the house smell good; it’ll make you feel good because it’s a no-fuss dish and you’ll be able to enjoy the festivities; and, after the egg hunt, it’ll make everyone feel good because they’ll be able to enjoy a wonderful Easter breakfast! By the way, you don’t have to use green eggs—but you can if you wish as long as they are not hardboiled. Overnight Scrambled Eggs Bake Serves 6-8 • Cook Time: 1 hour Ingredients • 8 eggs • 1 ½ C. milk • ¼ tsp. fine herbs • 6 oz. or a bit more of cubed ham • Several chopped leeks • ½ C. or more sliced mushrooms • 1 C. shredded cheddar cheese • One large tomato thinly sliced 6 thickly-sliced pieces of Challa or Italian bread loaf (you can use other bread, but I have found that the two I mentioned are the best for this dish.) Instructions Spray a 9 X 13 baking dish with non-stick spray. Beat eggs well; add the milk and the fine herbs and beat more. (If you wish, you can add other herbs and even a dash of white wine.) Place sliced bread on bottom of your baking dish. Toss ham, cheese, mushrooms and leeks together and put over bread. Pour egg mixture over all. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight. Take out of frige in the morning and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Bake covered for 45 minutes; then remove foil and place sliced tomatoes on top and bake an additional 15 minutes. Cut into serving size portions. TIP: You can use additional or substituted ingredients for this dish according to your whim and imagination. For instance, you could add some chopped asparagus, spinach, squash, or other kinds of cheeses. It’s a very versatile dish. tws

work wherever the client wants me and at home on our five-acre facility south of Bellevue. I grew up around Wilmington, Delaware, in a family passionate about fox hunting. I was immersed in a rich and traditional world of great horsemen and learned to gallop cross-country at a very early age. I fell off my first pony at age 5, broke my collarbone, but told no one, for fear I would get in trouble. My kind step-grandfather procured a suitable pony to regain my confidence. Blackie was very important to my riding career. If I had not had a quiet mount to enjoy, I may not have remounted. I continued to fox hunt and was an active member of pony clubs. I competed in hunter trials and shows back East. I moved to Idaho in my early 20s and became a hippie horse rider in Triumph. At this time I also taught skiing, and riding in Sun Valley, and played music professionally. I started three-day eventing again in the ’80s as an amateur and sold real estate for work. I quit real estate in 2006 and became a professional horsewoman. Since 1980, I have registered nine horses to compete at preliminary level. Some of them were superstars and won. What do you offer?

arallel to alpine skiing, there are circuits for other winter sports, among them freestyle skiing, various snowboard events and cross-country skiing. For now, the Americans dominate in snowboarding and extreme sports events because we invented them. Nordic events like cross-country are dominated by the Scandinavians, where we’ve always been playing catch-up. Olympic cross-country training is coming to the Valley, so it’s appropriate to mention the improving fortunes of Team USA. Kikkan Randall and Jessica Diggins had a second-place team sprint finish in Milan in January. Randall’s name kept popping up all winter. In December she won her second consecutive freestyle sprint and her fifth career World Cup win. She was sixth in the standings, then fourth, and by season’s end she had won the World Cup sprint title, the first American in 30 years to win a championship. She won her first World Cup event in 2007 (Lindsey Vonn’s debut year), the first U.S. man or woman to win a cross-country event in 24 years! Freestyle ski events this year were dominated by the tragic deaths of mogul skier Sarah Burke, and then, in March, Nik Zoricic’s death in a ski-cross race. The events weighed heavily on Dartmouth College freshman Hannah Kearney, who started fast and never looked back in the mogul event. She won all but one race this season, 16 consecutive events in all, a World Cup record. After the tragedies, officials are reassessing venue safety and the technical requirements—like double flips—moving the sport forward and im-

proving safety at the same time. After a long legal struggle with the good ol’ boy clique called the International Olympic Committee, women’s ski jumping became an Olympic sport. The U.S. team is No. 1 in the world in this event, led by its star jumper, 17-year-old Sarah Hendrickson of Park City, Utah. Of the season’s nine jumps, she’s won six, finished second twice, and ninth once. This event’s first champion was American Lindsey Van in 2009. Sarah has been skiing moguls since age 3. To date, this discipline is grossly underfunded by the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. A documentary, Ready to Fly, tells the story of the women’s struggle with the IOC to make their ski jumping an Olympic sport. Bob Holcomb won the fourman bobsled event in Lake Placid, N.Y., in March. He’s the first U.S. male to win both the two-man and a four-man race. In 2009 he also won here and broke a 50-year-old U.S. drought in the event. In skeleton sledding (one person face-down on a sled, though not on a U.S. Flyer), 27-year-old Katie Uhlaender of Vermont pulled an upset by winning gold in a World Cup championship race in Lake Placid. She also wants to compete in the Summer Olympics as a weightlifter. Veteran Olympic gold medalist Kelly Clark, 28, of Vermont, won 16 consecutive snowboard halfpipe events this season. She is the most successful woman snowboarder in history. Since 2001, she has 54 wins and 90 top-three finishes, and plans to be in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Remarkably, she has managed to dominate in a constantly changing young person’s sport. tws

or the last few weeks the songbirds have been arriving in North America. The big push will come between now and mid-May. They rest around the Gulf Coast in the shore cheniers, and farther inland in bottomland forests, or what little remains of them, and then resume their journey and fan out over the rest of the continent. The swallows are already in Capistrano, and the meadowlarks in Shoshone. They’re leaving their winter feeding grounds and are coming to breed. Survive-breed-survive, and so the dance of life goes on for the lucky few who get to live their full two or three years; 85 percent of all songbird mortality occurs during migration. Aristotle was the first to comment on the seasonal movement of birds, but between him and about 1950, where they went and why they returned was shrouded in myth because we had to rely on our eyesight. Anecdotal experience is a poor gauge of the larger truth. The longer reach of technology’s prosthetics began to provide biologists and ornithologists with a new set of tools. Almost everything we know about bird migration has been discovered over the last fifty years, but it’s been an uphill battle against the scientific community’s

preconceptions. They’re innately suspicious of anything amazing, and our birds are that. Radar has been a huge help. Spectrograms, hooked to computers, can identify birds by sound and can count them as they pass overhead. Tiny radio transmitters attached to the birds emit location signals, monitor heart rates and wing beats, and more. Using molecular techniques, we know how much energy they expend. Talk about long commutes! Cliff swallows fly from the Yukon to South America and back—12,000 miles! The blackpoll warbler leaves from Alaska and flies to the Atlantic, then flies another 2200 miles farther south. Their fuel efficiency is equivalent to 720,000 miles per gallon of gas. They fly for 80-plus hours non-stop. This is the human metabolic equivalent of running a four-minute mile for 80 miles. The bird augments its 11 grams of body weight by another 10 grams of fat, just enough fuel for a 90-hour flight. That’s the amount of fat in a Snicker bar. Of course, there are larger birds that migrate; 65 percent of

Greening Your Spring Cleaning


id you know most people use toxic chemicals every day? Detergents, stain removers and pesticides have made our homes chemical factories that endanger the environment by contaminating our groundwater, lakes and oceans. One of the biggest culprits in ocean pollution is phosphates, common in laundry detergents. Many of us tend to think any supermarket product must be safe; but remember that cleaning products are classified as hazardous waste. If these hazardous products in the home are ingested, absorbed through the skin or inhaled, they can cause illness that may only appear years later. Chemical levels are 70 times higher inside the home than out and this has been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, psychological abnormalities, skin reactions, headaches, joint pain, chronic fatigue, chest pains, dizziness, loss of sleep, and asthma. Housewives have a 55 percent higher risk of cancer than women working outside the home. The most common ingredients in cleaning products, alkalis and acids, are effective cleaners but can irritate the lungs, and are poisonous if swallowed. Choose other cleaning options; Planet Green ( recommends using all-purpose cleansers such as these: Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day, Begley’s Best Spot Remover and Cleaner, Method Multi-Surface Cleaner, and Seventh Generation All-Purpose Cleaner. tws

all birds do so, though, interestingly, all of them do not need to do it. With global warming, in the coming years, some species may decide not to migrate, because staying put confers a huge reproductive advantage. Just like us, animals, through the mechanisms of adaptation, can make decisions that override instinct. The most spectacular large-bird migration, occurring as we speak, can be observed southwest of Grand Island, Nebraska, along the Platte River. Five hundred thousand sandhill cranes, about 80 percent of the world’s population, spend a few weeks there on their way to Labrador and Siberia. Cranes are the oldest birds on record. They’ve been around for 60 million years. There are only about 550 whooping cranes in the world, and about half of them can be found here, along with 15 million ducks, geese and over 200 species of other birds. So, come the next Ides of March, saddle up and go see them. tws

UI-Blaine Extension Tips

Preparing Your Garden for Spring Planting


pring is upon us and we cannot wait to get outside and start gardening. Preparing your garden for planting requires some simple planning. Here are a few pointers that will make your gardens successful and bloom throughout the summer: 1. Make sure your garden beds are topped up with rich soil, moist and crumbly, free of weeds. 2.Pull or block any invasive roots. 3. Once the base garden soil is in place, it’s time to feed it. The preferred method is to till in compost. Manure is best applied about two weeks before seeding in the spring. 4. Set stakes or poles and trellises for tall crops. If you plan to grow plants that will need support, now is the time to set these supports in place. If you wait until your plants are in, driving the stakes into the soil may disturb the young spreading roots of your vegetables. 5. Cover the soil with mulch or plastic sheeting. Covering the soil in your garden is a good practice throughout the year. It is especially useful in the early spring, after amendments and fertilizer have been added. The cover helps retain warmth, sheds

water, and discourages the sprouting of weed seeds which may lie dormant in the garden soil. In colder, wetter climates, covering the bed with a layer of black poly sheeting will be more effective than mulch at helping warm up the soil in early spring. 6. Divide perennials. Clear and mulch perennial beds. Existing perennial beds can be cleared of old plant debris and mulched to prevent weed growth. Perennials are easiest to divide when emerging shoots are only 2 to 4 inches tall. 7. Wait till the soil is warm before planting. Avoid the temptation of planting your garden at the first sign of a warm spell. If you work the soil when it’s too wet, you’ll risk losing all of its natural air pockets and your seeds will suffocate and rot. Preparing your garden for spring sounds like a lot of work but routine garden maintenance throughout the year makes the early spring chores manageable. tws For more information on Living Well visit your Blaine County Extension office at 302 First Avenue South in Hailey, phone: (208) 788-5585 or e-mail: website: http://www.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I read the classified section every week, but rarely do I venture beyond the general merchandise category. However since I had some time this week, I read the business services section. I was amazed at all the home-based businesses. One business offered to clean out my garage. Another advertised a service to send birthday cards to my relatives so I wouldn't forget. Both are tasks I hate to do. Then I saw a pet sitting service that would watch my dog when I go on vacation. They get $75 per day. That's almost $3 an hour to watch my basset hound sleep all day! All this got me thinking. Should I consider a new career? Any ideas on how I could start a business from home?

• • • Carry: It seems dog sitting is a profitable business in your area. At $75 per day, I'd hope your dog gets sparkling water and breakfast in bed. Cash: At that price, you could probably afford to get him his own hotel room on your vacation. Carry: As you've already seen from your own classified section, there are an unlimited number of businesses you can start. Most of

Fast Facts Outside the Box

Duane “Cash� Holze & Todd “Carry� Holze 04/01/12 ŠThe Classified GuysŽ

the ones you've seen advertised are service-based businesses that specialize in doing routine tasks, like cleaning the garage or remembering to send birthday cards. Cash: Before you quit your day job though, give your future some serious thought. Running a business will take a lot of work. You need to be sure that you're up to the full responsibility of marketing your business and making the sales. Not everyone gets paid $75 to watch your dog sleep. Carry: The best business to start is one geared around your own interests, talents and skills. Since you'll need to spend a lot of time working at it, you want to create a job that you're passionate

about. If the owner of the dog sitting business didn't like dogs, it would be a really long day. Cash: Take a look around your area to see if there is a need for the business you're interested in. For example, if you're an excellent gardener and your neighbors are all brown thumbs, they may be willing to pay for your assistance in livening up their gardens. Once you start looking, you'll find there are endless opportunities. Carry: When you find your idea, sit down and map out a plan. Calculate your start-up costs, income potential and hours that it will take to succeed. Cash: With a little planning, you could find yourself in a great new career.

Not all small businesses turn into something as big as Microsoft or Amazon, but they are a crucial part of today's economy. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration and the U.S. Census Bureau, there were more than 5 million businesses with less than 4 employees. Those same businesses paid approximately 160 billion dollars in salaries to their employees. So remember that your one small idea for a business is part of a much larger picture.


Many people have thought about opening up their own business, but it can be a lot of work to start from scratch. That's what made franchise businesses so popular in recent years. It's estimated that 1 out of every 12 businesses is a franchise with a new one opening it's doors every 8 minutes. However, not all franchises are as large as McDonalds. Many of the fastest growing franchises are home-based businesses that offer services to the average homeowner. •

Reader Humor At the Office

After working at the same company for ten years, my friend Mike had enough. Even though he had two kids and a wife to support, he quit his job and started his own mail order business out of the garage. A few months later I stopped by his house to see how he was doing. As we talked he told me that he loved the business, but it had its good and bad. "The good," he said, "is that during the summer I'm around my kids all day long." "What's the bad?" I asked. As his son came screaming into the garage he laughed, "During the summer, I'm around my kids all day." (Thanks to Barry F.)

Long-Term vs. Acute Care BY MICHELLE SANDOZ


any people have only a vague concept of what Long-Term Care (LTC) is. Even people who know what LTC is may have trouble explaining it to other people. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consider Brenda and Charles, who will make the distinction graphic and easy to understand. Brenda has a broken arm, while Charles is paralyzed. Brenda needs acute medical care. Her arm will remain broken only temporarily. Charles has a chronic condition; we do not expect it to get better. Charles needs long-term care. When contemplating Brendaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation, we are all thinking cure. Her condition will be fixed and then sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be as good as new. When contemplating Charlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; condition, we are all thinking care. We do not expect Charles to get better, at least not soon; long-term care involves situations that will last for 90 days or longerâ&#x20AC;Ś often for the rest of someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Brenda will get her care from medical professionals. She would not let an unlicensed person set her arm! However, Charles needs help doing things like bathing, dressing and eating. He will get most of his care from paraprofessionals or nonprofessionals. Brendaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care will be singlefocusedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if her doctor wants to look at her foot to treat her arm, she has a problem! But Charlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; care support team will be concerned about how he can accomplish various daily activities, whether some approaches might

aggravate his condition and whether there are environmental changes which might help him (such as widening doorways). Can he get in/out of his house and move around inside? Can he access things he will need? Does he live with someone who could help him? His needs are multidimensional. In Brendaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, things will be done to her. A professional will set her arm. Her job, in fact, is to keep it as immobile as possible. However, the best type of care for Charles involves helping him to learn to do things for himself. Training, assistive devices and encouragement can/ will be critical to his success. Lastly, Brendaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care is likely to occur in a hospital or clinic. (Have you ever heard of a doctor making a house call to set a broken arm?) Charlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; care is most likely (hopefully) to occur at home. Acute health care is becoming increasingly high-tech in our society, but long-term care continues to have a large degree of high touch. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more about long-term care insurance and its products, please contact Michelle Sandoz at Insurance Specialists for more information. tws
