Brewery Concert to Feature Ian McFeron BY KAREN BOSSICK


an McFeron could easily have been teaching at an inner-city school this week. But, instead, the Seattle-based folk rocker will be in Hailey playing selections from his seventh studio recording, “Time Will Take You,” which he just released on Tuesday. McFeron will play songs from the album during a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Sun Valley Brewing Co. in Hailey. The album, which was produced by Doug Lancio—the Grammy-nominated producer for Patty Griffin—almost didn’t come to fruition. After a decade of touring nationally and internationally, McFeron was considering a career change. He was playing 200 shows a year but still living hand to mouth. Unable to make a decision whether to teach or continue being a musician, he penned “That’s the Truth,” a song about getting unstuck and searching for new bearings in confusing times. As he wrote the song, he realized he had love, he had music to write and he had enough money to get by. And, soon, he found himself in a recording studio with his fiddler Alisa Milner and bassist Norman Baker, as well as Brad Pemberton and pedal steel player Jon Graboff of Ryan Adams’ Cardinals and Nashville-based piano player Micah Hulscher. The album’s name, “Time Will Take You,” is a line from one of the songs. But it also offers a message of comfort, a reminder that hard times pass. “It’s a central theme—that time has a way of carrying you, even when you feel frozen in space,” said McFeron. “With enough time and enough hope, you get to where you are meant to be.” The album features fewer stories of heartbreak and more stories from the road, along with references to the things you don’t lose to foreclosure or a broken stock market ticker—things like friends and family. “It’s a brighter record than ‘Summer Nights,’ which I loved for its late-night introspective mood,” said McFeron. “The new songs are more upbeat and fun and more playful, although it still digs into some soul searching.” Then, on Sunday, April 7, local band Finn Riggins, who just finished a huge tour with Built to Spill, will take the Brewery stage at 9 p.m. Cover for that show is $3/person. tws


ick Kapala rubs his toe in the snow and scowls. Instinctively, he knows the young skiers on his ski team are going to have problems with snow building up under their skis given the spring snow conditions at the Lake Creek training area. He throws a bunch of no-wax skis in the tub behind his snowmobile and ferries them out to the ski tracks where he begins handing them out, along with some skiing advice. “Peter, we want your arms swinging full extension, not that short little swing,” he tells one young skier as he approaches the staging area. “Be sure your nose is over your knee—you’re maybe not as centered as you could be,” he tells another. “Go back down there when (Zachary) Lindahl comes around. Jump on behind him and mimic him as he goes around the track.” The young racers circling the trails hang on every word. After all, Kapala has been named the U.S. Coach of the Year several times and his program has twice been named the U.S. CrossCountry Club of the Year. What’s more, the man who was inducted into the Sun Valley Ski Hall of Fame earlier this year has coached internationally for the United States at world championships and world junior championships. “Rick has built an amazing program—he’s well known across the world for his coaching skills and what’s he’s done with these young athletes,” said Bob Rosso, who was involved with Sun Valley’s Nordic race program in its infancy. Kapala himself aspired to be an Olympic wrestler but an injury he sustained during a pick-up football game at Michigan Tech forced him to drop contact sports. He began cross-country skiing with his college buddies—his “tribe,” as he calls them—to stay fit and was smitten with the sport’s challenge and solitude. “Wrestling is a tough sport—you have to diet, you have to be one-on-one with another person, you’re pushed to a really high level of discomfort, which I liked,” said Kapala, who majored in biology. “In many ways, cross-country skiing is similar—you’re on a team but it’s an individual sport that requires a lot of individual sacrifice. What’s different is your gym is the great outdoors, whether you’re roller skiing or running through the woods.” Kapala admits that he was never the strongest guy on the team but he did well enough to earn a scholarship. “The coaches were accepting of me as not the best guy on the team but as an important component of the team—I was always made to feel wanted,” he added. Kapala says he’s tried to carry that philosophy over to his own program. “We want to win ski races, but that’s not the point. Most of the kids in our program will not go to the Olympics—maybe they will not ever race. But that doesn’t mean their participation is not important, that they can’t use their time with us as a vehicle for human growth. “We’re not fighting world hunger here. The kids know I’m competitive, but I never let that cloud our big mission, which is to

get kids out of doors and have them learn to push themselves beyond their comfort level. At the end of the day, all we’re doing is skiing around in circles with funny little suits and sticks on our feet. But I watch them and I know they’re going to be successful human beings. I get to see them grow up, become confident, ready to take on the world.” However understated, Kapala and his coaches have had some notable successes at the highest levels of the sport, from Morgan Arritola and Simi Hamilton, who competed in the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, B.C., to more than three dozen kids who have become national champions and gotten invites to such notable events as the Scandinavian Cup and world junior teams. Kapala says he learned more from Arritola than, he’s sure, he ever taught her. Ditto for many of his other athletes. “You don’t make Olympians out of your athletes. They’re given

Rieko Aizawa to Headline Concert

jane’s artifacts arts / / crafts / / papers / / office / / party



ieko Aizawa was just 13 when she was discovered by the late Alexander Schneider. She performed as a soloist with his Brandenburg Ensemble at concerts marking the debut of Tokyo’s Casals Hall. And at 14 she was booked into the Kennedy Center and Carnegie Hall performing Mozart’s “Concerto No. 12 in A Major” with Schneider’s New York String Orchestra. On Tuesday the now-38-yearold Japanese-born pianist will headline the final concert in the Sun Valley Artist Series 2012-13 season. She’ll perform music by Beethoven, Chopin, Ibert and Grieg at 7 p.m. at the Church of the Big Wood in Ketchum. The series’ artistic director, Susan Spelius Dunning Gannon, will offer an entertaining Meet the Artist question-and-answer session with Aizawa preceding the concert at 6:15 p.m. Tickets, which range from $10 to $24, are available at Ketchum bookstores. Aizawa also will present a special performance for the students and parents of the Community School, The Sage School and Pioneer Montessori School at 4 p.m. Sunday at the Community School Theater. Aizawa will present a master class featuring three or four local piano students performing on stage during the presentation. Aizawa, who has been praised by “The New York Times” for her “impressive musicality, crisp touch and expressive phrasing,” has performed throughout the world, including Boston’s Symphony Hall. The proud holder of a Master’s degree from the Juilliard School of Music, Aizawa became the artistic director of the Alpenglow Chamber Music Festival in Colorado in 2010. She is about to release her second solo CD. Aizawa comes to Sun Valley fresh off a tour of India. “Dealing with different pianos for every concert has certainly been a challenge. However, adjusting to the instrument, no matter what the conditions—and with limited time—is a part of a pianist’s responsibility,” said Aizawa, who typically has just a few hours before a concert to get used to her ivory-keyed partner. “I always try to have a positive attitude, to focus on making music with as much joy as possible.” (Aizawa will get to perform on Gannon’s 9-foot Steinway concert grand piano at both the Community School and the Presbyterian Church.) Though born in Japan, Aizawa moved to the United States when she was 15 and now lives in New York City. “Although I appreciate my home country, as a musician

I feel freer and more comfortable here. New York City is a wonderful cosmopolitan city, full of energy and excitement. And it allows me to explore many different things in the artistic realm,” Aizawa said. One of Aizawa’s recent explorations is the Prism series she did in Japan. She presented three recital programs, each highlighting the music of three different composers. And in each she performed a commissioned work written with the idea of paying homage to the featured composer. Japanese composer Akira Nishimura wrote a mysterious work, “Night Spell,” inspired by Ludwig Van Beethoven’s “Moonlight Sonata.” Japanese composer Toshiro Saruya wrote the fantasy-like “Illusion,” inspired by Johannes Brahms. And American composer Dan Coleman wrote the beautiful “Night Singing” in response to one of Franz Schumann’s songs. “Giving a world premiere of works by these composers, whom I respect greatly, was an honor for me. I was also very happy to learn that this homage concept let the audience feel closer to the contemporary music,” she said. Aizawa said she will perform a shorter and somewhat more accessible program for the kids on Sunday, talking about each piece as she goes. “However, I will still give them the same repertoire from my regular recital program. They deserve to taste the real thing—I prefer not to give them a typical ‘kid’s menu!’ ”

Fools’ Summer Production BY KAREN BOSSICK


ompany of Fools, it appears, has suspended with the foolishness since merging with the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. The theater group did not hold its annual Fools Day event announcing its upcoming season in order to blend its programming announcement with The Center’s in August. That said, the Fools has announced its upcoming summer production, which will run July 2 through 27 at The Liberty Theatre. That would be John Robin Baitz’s “Other Desert Cities.” The play revolves around a woman who announces that she

is about to publish a memoir dredging up a pivotal and tragic event in her family’s history, even though it’s a wound her parents, her brother and aunt don’t want reopened. She draws a line in the sand and dares them to cross it. A “Vogue” critic called it a “scathingly funny, deeply felt family drama… with a wisdom and compassion and sureness of touch.” The cast will include Keith Moore, Denise Simone, Patsy Wygle and New York-based actor Hanna Cheek. Rusty Wilson, who co-founded Company of Fools, will direct it. Tickets go on sale May 20. tws

Have a Mouse in the House?

o you have a pest problem but want to reduce the use of chemicals in your home? One ERC member has a few suggestions to keep your home a healthy one. Is there a mouse in the house? Cats make great natural “mousetraps.” If a cat isn’t an option, live traps can be used and released away from the home. To prevent rodents from entering, seal up cracks and holes, trim plants, seal food, keep a tidy house, don’t let garbage accumulate, and clean up standing water. Ants stealing your picnic? Plant a natural barrier of spearmint and basil. Inside the home, discourage ants with a sprinkle of cayenne pepper, garlic, cinnamon, charcoal, bone meal, talcum powder or chalk.

you crazy? Mothballs should never be used because of their toxicity; try glue traps near attics and basements or a squirt from a spray bottle filled with a solution of one-third cup of mild dishwashing liquid to one gallon of water. Vacuum up fallen insects. Mosquito season isn’t far off, so plant marigolds or catnip in your yard to repel them. Install bat and bird houses to encourage natural predators for mosquitoes. Ban the “bug zapper” because studies show that many bugs killed in electrocution traps are beneficial insects. Next week, more on pesticides. Have a question, or want to write your own ERCbeat?

A Little Change Adds Up


he changes in the county’s recycling program as of October 1, 2012, mean that mixed paper, plastics 1-5 and aluminum/steel/tin are accepted curbside and at drop-off locations. Aluminum/steel/tin is a big category—but what does it include? Acceptable aluminum/ steel/tin items include soda and juice cans, disposable food tins (tuna, soup and cat food cans), and clean or slightly used foil. Aluminum in particular is a great (and easy!) item to recycle, and it’s often called infinitely recyclable. About two thirds of the aluminum ever made is still in existence, and used aluminum cans are recycled and returned to a store shelf as a new can in as few as 60 days! Isn’t that incredible? An awesome 106,000 cans are recycled every minute, but if every American recycled

just one more can per week, we could boost recycling rates from 57 percent to 75 percent. How about we try that here in Blaine County. When recycling your aluminum/steel/tin, it’s very important to rinse the containers before putting them in your bins. The leftover food residue can mold, spill onto other recyclable items and contaminate them, and cause damage to recycling center machines. When recycling, it’s very important that only items that can be recycled are placed in recycling bins. Even a small amount of the wrong material can cause contamination, making it nonrecyclable and headed for the landfill. When it doubt, throw it out. For a list of all the acceptable items in Blaine County, visit tws

Jerusalem, a City For Everyone STORY & PHOTO BY BALI SZABO


rofessional photographers are like fishermen and farmers—they have to get out of bed. I was in Jerusalem, my first morning in this storied city, the Center of the World to some. The publisher of the book we were working on warned, “Don’t waste your time here. There’ll be an overload of pictures from Jerusalem, so it’s unlikely you’ll get published. The same for the Dead Sea.” He, his favorite photographer and I left the hotel at 5:30 a.m. and headed for the pink-and-white limestone ramparts of East Jerusalem. They dropped me off at the east-facing Lion’s Gate, and I began the slow walk along the cobbled Via Dolorosa toward the 1000-year-old Church of the Holy Sepulcher. It was overcast, and with no light, there’d be no pictures. Or so I thought. One step inside the gate, and immediately felt the old city’s gravity (the streets are too narrow for cars), the weight of history, its spiritual lore, its reality and reputation for being the most contested city in the world. A city known for its miracles had one for me. The rising sun broke through a gap in the clouds and flooded the old street with its magenta light. I was in the perfect spot for the perfect shot. I got it and I knew it. (In spite of the publisher’s skepticism, the picture became a full-page frontispiece for the Jerusalem chapter.) History is nothing if not tidal. Jerusalem, the ‘City of Peace’, has had little of it. This City on a Hill, 2500 feet above sea level, in spite of its walls and elevation, was never secure without a conqueror’s umbrella. It sits near the intersection of three continents—Africa, Asia and Europe. It’s also a home to the three great monotheistic religions of the world. It was never a

political, military or commercial center of power. That resided in Damascus, Beirut, Baghdad, Rome, Constantinople, Persia and Europe, and in time, they all came a’calling. Jerusalem (JebuSalem) documents the rising and waning of imperial fortunes. The area had been inhabited by Arab Jebusites, a moon-worshipping people, headquartered in Jericho, since 9000 BCE (Before Common Era). In 1000 BCE, King David and his son Solomon built a temple around the rock where Abraham was to sacrifice Isaac. It was called the Holy of the Holies, and housed the Ark of the Covenant. It stood until the Babylonians destroyed it in 597 BCE. When the Jewish residents refused to adopt their polytheistic religion, they were exiled to Babylon. Here they had a great epiphany—the city around their beloved Mount Zion became enshrined as the City of God. In 539 BCE, the Persian, Cyrus the Great, conquered Babylon and let the Jews, who by 515 BCE had rebuilt their temple, return home. In 100 BCE, the Syrians razed Jerusalem, and the Romans did the same in 137 A.D. The Islamic armies took over in 637 A.D. and promptly built the Dome of the Rock atop the Temple Mount that reputedly has Mohammed’s footprint as he ascended to heaven. As a token of respect paid to the other Abrahamic religion, Judaism, they built their own mosque, the Al Aqsa, a discreet distance from the Haram-al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary). Both survived the Crusades and stand to this day. Today, the city is home to secular Jews, the Hasidim, secular Arabs, Muslims, Jewish Arabs, Christians, to 30 denominations, 15 language groups and seven different alphabets. This city does not belong to anyone, or any two groups. It never has, and I doubt it ever will. tws

Through the Looking Glass BY JONATHAN KANE


lison and Miranda Gasenica have a reputation for always being together. That makes sense because the two Wood River High School seniors are identical twins and have lovingly followed in each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footsteps since birth. It also means that they have a lot of similarities besides looks that enter into every phase of their lives, including identical 4.2 grade point averages. For Miranda, she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of having it any other way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just really unique,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To have your best friend by your side every day is truly amazing. Not everyone experiences what we feel in the way that we always have that someone so close to us to go through life with.â&#x20AC;? For Alison itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;the way that we always finish each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sentences, no matter what. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also true that you can both feel for the other emotionally in a pretty strong way. You can actually hurt when the other one cries.â&#x20AC;? The two girls lived in Indian Creek until seventh grade and then they moved to Hailey. Although they are now 18, they dressed in identical outfits until the fifth grade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our parents finally realized that we needed to break apart and be who we are. As babies we would each have a toenail painted a different color so that we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be mixed up. That lasted until we were about three or four and our hair grew in. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just really used to being called Miranda,â&#x20AC;? said Alison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It happens about twice a day and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just turn and nicely explain that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not her. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not really weird. Our little trick is that I part my hair on the left and Mirandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the right. Our faces have changed a lot since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve matured but we still get

mixed up a lot. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been in the same class since sophomore year and our teachers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always enjoy it.â&#x20AC;? They have both loved growing up here. For Miranda it â&#x20AC;&#x153;is such a beautiful place. I love the outdoors and you can just go outside and be in nature.â&#x20AC;? Alison remarks that her parents are avid skiers and that her grandmother is a ranger so there has always been a big appreciation of the outdoors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just brought up in this amazing environment where we can do things like hike at any

time of the day. Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small here, so everyone pretty much knows your business. You hear about twins pulling off pranks but everyone here knows us, so we have to plan stuff like that out in advance. Mirandaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boyfriend once hugged me by mistake but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never tried to fool people on purpose.â&#x20AC;? For the girls, their real passion in life revolves around academics and soccer. At Wood River they have tackled a number of Advanced Placement classes including U.S. history,


language and composition, micro- and macroeconomics, government and statistics. For both girls economics and math are favorite subjects, with both leaning toward specific careers. Miranda wants to work in a city as part of a large marketing firm and will major in economics, and Alison wants to get into the nutrition field and hopefully travel and work in Third World countries. They both have high hopes for their separate futures, but could anything less be accepted from two very bright students? tws

Twelve-year-old Sasha and 14-year-old Malia Obama spent a couple days skiing Baldy this past week just days after having spent part of their Spring Break in the Bahamas. They were accompanied by perhaps a dozen friends, a full slate of Secret Service men (who still can’t ski any better than they did when they were protecting presidential candidate John Kerry) and a few members of the Sun Valley Ski Patrol, for good measure.

Orage Masters to Sizzle on Dollar BY KAREN BOSSICK


et ready for high-flying choreographed acrobatics and theatrics when Orage Masters commandeers Dollar Mountain this weekend. The Anti-Comp, as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s known, will provide a free spectator spectacular with break-all-rules, on-the-hill shenanigans Friday and Saturday. Billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the craziest scene skiing has ever seen,â&#x20AC;? the event is one-part slopestyle, one-part on-hill tailgate party and onepart costume party. Forty of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top ski athletes, including hometown boys Collin Collins and Karl Fostvedt, will compete on teams of four on Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Olympic-sanctioned Superpipe, cross course and terrain park in events judged by the riders themselves. The riders represent the top film crews in skiing and snowboarding, including Level 1 and The Traveling Circus. Orage, a Montreal clothing manufacturer that makes geeked-out jackets and ski pants, launched the event a decade ago to add a little pizzazz to the event circuit, said Mike Nick, Orage marketing director. The first four were held at Mammoth, the next three at Whistler. The next three events are planned for Sun Valley, Nick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a completely wild event with a long history,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eight teams, four athletes on each team, hitting jumps, you name it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a killer event at a killer resort, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll roll out some of our cool clothing lines. It looks more like a party than a contest. With the Sochi Olympics on everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better time to lighten things up a bit.â&#x20AC;? Riders will get a chance to eye one another during a King Pin Challenge Bowling Party Thursday night. On Friday theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll train on Dollar Mountain. Say â&#x20AC;&#x153;pretty pleaseâ&#x20AC;? and you might get some of them to sign your helmet. On Saturday the riders battle it out head to head. The six noncompeting teams and guests will

judge the acrobatics, ice skating style, with scores ranging from zero to a best of 10. When the slush has settled, a team either rides into the next round or is banished to their crib. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tie, each competing team will be asked to send their best athlete in a one-run tie-breaking ski-off. The teams are vying for $10,000 cold hard cash for first place, compliments of Go Pro. Second-place finishers can choose between a three-day trip for four to Retallack Lodge in British Columbia or a five-day summer getaway to Sun Valley, complete with golf and guns. The third-place finishers get whatever the second-place finishers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pick. Skiers will also have other opportunities to vie for such prizes as a thousand greenbacks and $5,000 cold hard cash at various events, including the Halftime Hoedown on Saturday.


11 a.m.-3 p.m. Skiers train on Dollar Mountain. 4-6 p.m. Skiers will battle it out in an Orange Masters Cup Broom Hockey Tournament at the Sun Valley indoor ice rink in an event open to the public. (Disclaimer: We arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gonna be pretty. More like ridiculousâ&#x20AC;Ś .)


11 a.m.-4 p.m. Orage Masters 8 will take place on Dollar Mountain. Practice runs will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Heat No. 1 takes place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Each of the four teams that has been banished to their crib will send one athlete to compete in a winner-take-all mystery competition for $1,000 cash during the Halftime Hoedown from 1:30 to 1:45 p.m. The top four teams will face off in head-tohead action from 2 to 3 p.m. The finals will be held at 3:15 p.m. with an Award Ceremony at 4:15 p.m. 4:30-6 p.m. Old Death Whisper will provide live Americana folkabilly music on the patio of Carolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dollar Mountain Lodge. 8 p.m.-close. An after-party featuring live music from the Casey Donahew Band will be held at Whiskey Jacquesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in downtown Ketchum. The event is sponsored by â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freeskier Magazine,â&#x20AC;? Go Pro, Sun Valley and Retallack Lodge. tws

he Intralibrary Loan didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have this book, so at my behest, the Hailey Public Library kindly purchased a copy. The Community Library has two copies. First published in 1967, it is now in its sixth edition, and remains the gold standard for outdoor medical practice when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re far from a care facility. Each edition has added chapters, and this 2010 version has eight new additions. This volume is an appropriate reference source for this all-season, physically active Valley full of older people who are still pushing it and are prone to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;boomeritis.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; After reading a good part of this book, I may never venture outside again, as it deals with everything the natural world can and does throw at us. The book is a thorough, clear, technically uncompromised series of medical treatises, yet itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accessible to trip leaders, outfitters and the layperson. It deals with extremes of heat, cold, altitude, allergies, drowning, parasitic disorders, strokes, surgical problems, pregnancies, animal attacks and evacuation protocols. The first half of the book, chapter by chapter, details the basics of human physiologyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;cardiac, respiratory, neurological, circulatory, eye and ear, foot and ankle and other orthopedics. The bookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s readability is important because any one of us may have to step into the breach, not only to help ourselves, but others. This is particularly true at altitude, where more than one person should be able to recognize the symptoms of acute mountain sickness (AMS), and be able to make decisions. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even a chapter on human psychology. The book is as strong on prevention, whenever possible, as it is on treatment. One of my core beliefs is that the more you know, the better off you, and/or perhaps others, are. tws


Sun Valley Projects The Sun Valley Lodge will undergo scheduled infrastructure maintenance April 7-14.

inda and I decided on making Sweetwater our second home (soon to be primary) just about a year ago. We have had so much fun exploring the area that we decided to open a satellite office in downtown Hailey just so we could extend our play time. We have enjoyed the workout facility and then really enjoyed the hot-tub. Have I mentioned that hot-tub enough? Even at 6 degrees outside the pool and the hot-tub were great! Throughout all of our experiences we have noticed that everything from the town home and the entire Sweetwater property has been built and maintained with quality that is truly designed to last a lifetime. We are not flying in to the airport on a Lear Jet, but when we walk around the grounds and lounge around the facilities we certainly feel like we did just that.â&#x20AC;? ~Thanks for all you do, Don and Linda Kenyon

Burt Not So Incredible BY JONATHAN KANE


agic and illusion are made to amaze and delight the mind. Unfortunately, they do not always achieve the same results when transferred to the big screen. Last week it was Oz The Great and Powerful and this week exhibit number one is The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Perhaps if the producers had not gone so overboard in the proclamation of the film’s title it would not be so easy to mock the final outcome, because this movie is anything but incredible. Too bad for Steve Carell, whose talents certainly pass for incred-

ible—just not in this so-called comedy. Also too bad for the other three excellent leads, Steve Buscemi, Alan Arkin and Jim Carrey, who try their hardest to breath fire into the script. Carell and Buscemi play a magical act that has been together since puberty and now, after dominating the strip for a decade, has fallen on hard times. Unfortunately, the newcomer on the block is a total parody of magician Criss Angel, played to psycho perfection by Carrey. If you only see this movie for one reason make that reason be Carrey’s funniest work in a decade. Whether it’s roasting on hot coals or plunging a screw into

Jon rated this movie

his brain, Carrey gets the loudest laughs in the film and actually reminds you of what it was in the first place that made him so funny. Arkin is always good as the magician that inspired Carell’s dreams, and Buscemi gives comic support as the other half of the mismatched showbiz team. The real problems remain with the script, labored over by at least six writers without a lot to show for it. The film never really seems to know what it’s about, and for flaws, that one is pretty fatal. tws

Dear Leader

We have our liquor license

The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson, 2012, hardback, 443 pages

come have a mixed drink and more! 103 South Main, Unit A, Hailey, Idaho



am sure that you are aware of the worries North Korea has presented our world. This book is a must read for anyone who is concerned or interested in North Korea, its people, and how the government and the “Dear Leader” thinks. It’s a must read in spite of the fact that this book is fiction because I have a feeling that what this book portrays can probably be a fairly accurate description of the North Korean spirit of today. In this beautifully told thriller, you’ll feel like you are getting a bird’s-eye view of a very secretive society and country. It is a real page-turner. It’s a tale that contains astute thinking on the nature of freedom, sacrifice, and glory surrounded by people who have nothing to live for. This story also contains one thing most good stories can’t do without: a love story. In this story, the “Dear Leader” is omnipresent in every conversation, thought and movement of all of the citizens of North Korea. “Dear Leader” becomes a 3-dimentional figure with hair that is heavily sprayed wearing a jumpsuit. He has traits of madness. He is a monomaniac and is a dude with whom I am sure we can relate to other dear leaders such as Stalin and Hitler. One reviewer calls the author Johnson “a lunatic storyteller.” He teaches creative writing at Stanford. Here are some Adam Johnson quotes that I find very interesting: “Where we are from... stories are factual. If a farmer is declared a music virtuoso by the state, everyone had better start calling him maestro. And secretly, he’d be wise to start practicing the piano. For us, the story is more important than the person. If a man and his story are in conflict, it is the man who must change. But people do things to survive, and then after they survive, they can’t live with what they’ve done.” I hope that these quotes will give you a hint of what this story is about. So, now’s a good time to pick up this book for a very intense and entertaining rollercoaster read. Give us your feedback at tws

Bryant Dunn to Speak on Fly-Fishing the Himalayas this Thursday Bryant Dunn, owner/operator Sun Valley Outfitters LLC, will talk about his Himalayan fly-fishing adventures at the next meeting of the Hemingway Chapter, Trout Unlimited. The meeting is from 5 to 7 p.m. this Thursday, April 4 at Whiskey Jacquesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in Ketchum, and admission is free. A 20-year resident of the Wood River Valley, Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for flyfishing and exploration began in the rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula and the massive drainages of British Columbia. Today, six continents and 50 countries later, in addition to casting flies throughout the Arctic, Africa, Europe, India, the South Pacific, Southeast Asia and Central America, Dunn has pioneered some the most remote fishing destinations in the Himalayan Range. He is currently planning an expedition into Burma for 2014 and later this year will lead an expedition into eastern Bhutan to make the first fishing descent of a major Himalayan river only first navigated in late 2011.

Golden Mahseer, landed in Bhutan. When not searching the Himalayas for undiscovered fishing opportunities, Dunn runs his stateside business, Sun Valley Outfitters, at his home in Ketchum. He also supervises the Sun

Transform Those Hard-boiled Eggs BY MARGOT VAN HORN


his is a very delicious filling for leftover hardboiled eggs (Easter) or for St. Pat’s (think green) or really anytime. For fun I sometimes combine this recipe with some ham-filled eggs so as to duplicate the Green Eggs and Ham from that famed Dr. Seuss tale so many of us read to our wee ones. In conclusion, a little hardboiled egg safety knowledge according to the FDA’s Website is the following: “Cooked eggs, including hard-boiled eggs, and egg-containing foods, should not sit out for more than 2 hours. Within 2 hours either reheat or refrigerate. Use hard-cooked eggs (in the shell or peeled) within 1 week after cooking.” Spinach-Stuffed Eggs (I think for hors d’oeuvres, most people might eat two halves so this recipe might serve 4)

Ingredients: 4 hard-boiled eggs 2 Tbsp. cooked well-drained spinach (I use fresh) 2 oz. whipped cream cheese 2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan A dash of freshly grated nutmeg Salt and pepper to taste A dash of cream Sliced black olives and some slivered pimentos for topping or even some finely chopped ham

to your health


Cut the eggs lengthwise. Scoop out the yolk and put into a food processor or blender along with the cream cheese, spinach, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, and nutmeg. I actually mashed everything with a fork so that it came out not quite so smooth and I thought more tasty and interesting looking. It’s up to you, and if your filling is not as smooth as you wish, add a bit of whole milk or cream. Fill egg whites with the spinach filling and top with a sliced black olive and a sliver of pimiento or chopped ham. Ham and gherkins egg filling for the Dr. Seuss effect: Mash 6 hard-boiled egg yolks with 4 Tbsp. finely chopped cold cooked ham, 1 Tbsp. finely chopped gherkins and enough mayonnaise or whipped cream cheese to make a firm paste. Fill the eggs with the ham mixture and garnish tops with more chopped ham and paprika. For easy access and printing of this and past recipes, visit Margot’s blog http://blog.

Do Something That Makes You Smile BY CONNIE LOVE


re you mentally trying to shake the winter doldrums? Spring weather doesn’t always help. One day the air is sunny and crisp and clear; the next day we’re back to rain and snow. Nevertheless, it’s a good time to absorb the energy of the blossoming earth. Remember that just as the exterior world alternates between rain and sunshine, it’s okay if your mental state sometimes alternates. The important goal is to keep moving ahead. Think of spring as a great time to renew yourself physically and mentally. Remain open to new possibilities. Be willing to escape routines. Leave the doors of your mind open to discoveries that enable you to feel truly alive. Enjoy opportunities around you. Do the things that make time disappear. Find your passion. Passion is energy. It’s the power that comes from focusing on what really excites you. When you live with enthusiasm, you fully engage your brain and body. Your activities build new pathways that will foster heath and well-being. When you live your life with passion and purpose, you can serve yourself and your community in meaningful ways. Passion will keep your mind active and sharp and

strengthen your relationships with everyone you meet. You may have read the article in The New York Times last week entitled “Is Giving the Secret to Getting Ahead?” The author interviewed Adam Grant, adviser to Google on productivity and the youngest-tenured and highest-rated professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He is convinced that helping others is the key to productivity and to personal and professional success. One can only do this, of course, by remaining open to the possibilities of helping others. So shed those winter clothes and ski boots. Shed the rainy state of mind. Find a way to help others as well as yourself. Then do something that makes you smile and that makes you feel good. Catch up with your neighbors, friends, pets, etc. Take it all in. Be the best you can be for yourself and others around you. Was there a time in your day that you thought about others as well as yourself? Was there laughter in your day? Be playful and learn to relax. Be open to new possibilities and go with the flow of the day. These are the moments of life. Connie Love, a certified life coach, is available at (208) 720-2216 or Additional information is at tws

Easter in Bellevue

The Impact of Long-Term Care Giving BY MICHELLE SANDOZ


he majority of long- term care services in this country are provided not by nursing homes—as many may incorrectly assume—but by women in the home. A study by the U.S Department of Health and Human Services, titled “Where is Long-Term Care Provided?” found these services were provided by women who are approaching their 50’s, are employed full-time and may be responsible for their own children as well as the care of a loved one. In fact, about three-fourths of family caregivers are women. Although men do provide some direct care, it is women who are likely to do most of the “hands-on” care, such as bathing and feeding the person in need. In a Genworth survey, “Beyond Dollars: The True Impact of Long-Term Caring,” over a third of surveyed caregivers reported direct negative consequences to their lives. According to a 2009 study by the National Alliance for Caregivers, there are approximately 66 million Americans serving as unpaid family caregivers, with the economic value of this care estimated at $350 billion. Caregiving is an extremely difficult

job and many caregivers show symptoms of decline in physical and mental health. It can have dramatic effects on caregivers’ lives: their marriages, family dynamics, and relationships with friends and financial security. It is not uncommon for caregivers to have serious health problems. Emotional stresses may include: concern over the recipient’s health and safety; loss of friends due to increased time spent caregiving; feelings of depression; and a sense of guilt over desiring personal time. If you or anyone you know has been a caregiver for just two weeks, most can agree to these feelings. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reported elderly people who felt stressed while taking care of a disabled spouse were 63 percent more likely to die within four years than those caregivers who were not feeling stressed. The main reason for this is that caregivers get less sleep, do not exercise and eat properly, and do not keep up with their own medical care. As women age they may be likely to face major challenges as they seek to maintain independence and security. According to the National Center for Health Statistics in 2006, women have a longer life expectancy than men,


outliving them by an average of 20 or more years. Women who reach 65 can expect to live an average of 20 more years, and those who reach 75 can expect to live another 13 years. Upon visiting a nursing home, you will notice a large ratio of women to men. Many of us mistakenly believe that traditional health insurance pays for long-term care services. Health insurance pays for medical expenses, doctors’ services and hospital stays. Generally, it will not cover long-term care costs. Research shows that roughly 70 percent of those currently turning 65 will have longterm care needs at some point in their lives. Consider purchasing a longterm care insurance policy to plan for your long-term care needs and ensure protection from these consequences. Please contact me for a free publication by Genworth Financial: “A guide for women and their advisors in preparing for long-term care.”

REMINDER: Free Reading of Seafarer at the nexStage Tonight

A chilling tale of deviltry and hellfire will unfold on Wednesday, April 3, when the nexStage Theatre presents a free play reading of Irish playwright Conor McPherson’s “Seafarer.” The play, which runs one hour and 45 minutes with an intermission, starts at 6:30 p.m. at the theater at 120 S. Main St., Ketchum. Refreshments will

be available. The play, which takes a page right out of Celtic folklore, revolves around an alcoholic named Sharky who is attempting to stay off the bottle, even as he contends with his hard-drinking brother and his own haunted conscience. Sharky agrees to a harmless game

of poker but soon finds himself playing for his very soul when a stranger from the distant past arrives, raising the stakes higher. The cast features Andrew Alburger, Scott Creighton, Steve d’Smith, Keith Moore and Richard Rush under Jon Kane’s direction.

ver 125 children showed up to Mike Rose’s place, in Bellevue, this Sunday to search for Easter eggs. Four years ago, Rose began this tradition for the Bellevue community. It first began as five or six kids and he estimates this year’s crowd to be the biggest turnout. Rose and about five of his friends started preparations last week with boiling and coloring over 1,000 eggs. They even stuffed 500 plastic eggs for the sawdust pile.

UI-Blaine Extension Tips

Poisonous Plants, Livestock


oisonous plants are a major cause of economic loss to the livestock industry. Each year these plants adversely affect 3 to 5 percent of the cattle, sheep, goats, and horses that graze western ranges. All too often the losses to individual livestock operations are large enough to threaten the viability of that ranch. There are no known treatments for animals poisoned by most poisonous plants. Where a treatment is available, affected animals are usually in remote places and cannot be reached until it is too late to provide treatment. Many livestock-related deaths from grazing poisonous plants are due to management error. This includes failure to examine a pasture or range prior to use because the growth of some of these plants varies from year to year. Failure to know and understand plants in an area that are toxic to livestock can lead to catastrophic losses. Prevention and knowledge are essential in avoiding livestock loss.

Hundreds of plants are poisonous to livestock; many are toxic at all times, whereas others are toxic only under certain conditions. Livestock producers are urged to become familiar with the plants on their ranges and pastures that are potentially dangerous to their livestock. Help in identifying these plants can usually be obtained from the local county agricultural agent or by mailing a sample to the USDA-ARS Poisonous Plant Research Laboratory (PPRL). Help with poisonous plant problems can also be obtained from local veterinarians. To request a copy of the USDA Plants Poisonous to Livestock in the Western States book or the mailing address for PPRL, please contact your local Extension office. tws

DEFINING KAPALA — SKI HALL OF FAMER, from page 1 to you and your job is not to screw it up,” said Kapala. “They have a certain way, a certain level of relentless determination and they will not be pushed off their path. “They don’t define themselves by their results as much as the standard they’ve set for themselves. They may win by a minute and they say to themselves, ‘I can go faster.’ They just don’t define themselves the way others do.” Kapala never envisioned spending his life as a coach— he’d hoped to be a freshwater aquatic biologist. But a coaching stint at Michigan Tech led to another stint at Pacific Lutheran University. He coached the top two boys in the state in Alaska, plus a girls team that included Nina Kemppel, who competed in four Winter Olympics and claimed 18 national championships before becoming a consultant for Fortune 500 companies. In 1987 he received a letter from the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation that started, “We know you’re happy up there, but if you know anyone who would be interested in an opening as our coach, spread the word…” “I didn’t tell anyone,” Kapala said, that wide craggy grin stretching from one end of his face to the other. Before long, Kapala was flyfishing at Silver Creek, biking Sun Valley’s mountain bike trails and running up Carbonate Ridge. He even had a new bride on his arm—a science and math teacher at Wood River Middle School named Bridget with whom he recently celebrated his 20th anniversary. “I really like the environment here. It’s small enough you know the people who go to the post office but large enough to sustain the infrastructure you need to run a top-notch program,” he said. “And this place has the economic advantages to attract quality coaches—people like Chris Grover, who now heads the U.S. cross-country ski team,

and Chris Hall, now the head of Fischer Racing…” The shelves in Kapala’s office at the Lake Creek training hut sag under the weight of heavy tomes like “Lactate Threshold Training,” “One Stride Ahead,” “Sports Periodization,” “Jumping into Plyometrics” and “Theory and Methodology of Training.” There’s even a Texting Dictionary defining such abbreviations as ADIP (another day in paradise), 2G2BT (too good to be true) and 511 (too much information) so he can keep up with the youngsters. “6 at Sochi” posters heralding the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s hopes for the future are sprinkled in among pictures of the 150 youngsters who participate in the program each year and gobs of trophies and plaques. “You make goals in three- to five-year increments and next thing you know, 20 years has gone by,” Kapala said, glancing around. The Nordic program got a big bump with the excitement generated by the 20002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. School

kids watched Olympic athletes racing around the old Sun Valley Gun Club and—bang--there were 40 new kids in the pipeline. The North Valley Trails, especially the development of trails in Hailey, has helped, as well. “Build it and they will come,” Kapala said, quoting from “Field of Dreams.” “We have an amazing trail system that’s affordable and accessible to our community. And we will always be beneficiaries of this great alpine ski community that has paved the way for a robust cross-country community. And, while we’ve had notable success, parents aren’t necessarily saying, ‘I want my kid to be an Olympic skier.’ They’re saying, ‘This is a good, healthy program for my child to be involved in.’ They’re looking for something that’s challenging and fun, with people who care, and we can provide that.” Kelley Sinnott, who now coaches with Kapala after starting out as a racer, recalls how Kapala turned what initially seemed like a “big intimidating program” into a fun thing, with impromptu wrestling matches.

“The whole point is to stand on one ski and make sure your nose is over your toe,” says Rick Kapala as he teaches his young charges about balance.

“It’s so fun when you’re beating the coach to a pulp,” she said. “He retains a youthful enthusiasm for a guy who’s been doing this for so long. He exudes excitement, energy, passion, always looking out for the best interests of every kid. The kids pick up on the fact that it’s not just a job for him. He loves every minute of it, from working with kids who are struggling to being out on those extra nasty days.” Racer Nate Thomas agreed: “He’s really nice to everyone and he’s got a great bunch of good stories like what it was like back in the old days when he was young and all they had was classic skiing. He’s also a really good motivational speaker. He makes you relaxed, ready for a race, but jazzed up at the same time. He tells us: ‘You have a chance of doing great tomorrow and, if you don’t, that’s okay, too.’ ” Kapala, of course, claims that any success he and the program has had is a product of a cooperative effort of all its coaches



Rick Kapala and other Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation coaches will be toasted this weekend when a couple hundred people take part in the Bill Janss Pro Am Classic. Former Olympic, World Cup, pro and even amateur skiers and snowboarders will participate in a myriad of fun events, including Saturday morning’s races on Lower Warm Springs. This year’s Pro Am Classic has been themed “Let the Games Begin!” in honor of the upcoming 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, so you can expect to see racers sporting such costumes as Monopoly game pieces to the Greek gods.

and all its athletes. “It’s possible to have success when you have people like Kelley Sinnott who are invested in cross-country skiing and athletes who are killing themselves with their training—they make us coaches look great.” tws

Rick Kapala can’t carry on a conversation without issuing a bunch of time-honored Kapala-isms. Here are a few: You have to define yourself not by wins or losses but by your efforts. Big successes are built on little things repeated over time. Every day there are a bunch of little lessons and tasks you need to get good at, such as being on time, having your equipment organized… When you give your best as athletes and coaches, you elevate each other. You don’t need me every day to point the way. You need to take your own responsibility.

The worst thing that happens at a bad race is you get a workout. When we talk about someone having talent, what we mean is that they have the talent to learn a lot, the talent to push themselves. No one is born good at something. You apply yourself and you improve. There’s nothing you can’t accomplish in life if you decide you’re going to work at it and bring to it relentless determination in everything you do.

Who teaches you? You do. We provide the tips, but at the end of the day, it’s a process of discovery. You’ve got to be true to yourself in terms of what motivates you and your understanding of your psyche. There’s nothing wrong with your technique that another thousand kilometers won’t fix. It’s not what you do when people are watching that matters but what you do when people aren’t watching. That’s why you see people like Morgan Arritola and Pat Casey out there training alone day after day.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My 15-year-old daughter has been reading the classifieds and circling employment ads of places she'd like to work. My husband and I are leery of letting her get a job. We think she is too young for a part-time job and fear that it will interfere with her schoolwork. She already gets $10/week allowance, but she says she wants to make more money to buy clothes and go to the movies with her friends. We sat her down for a family meeting the other night hoping to resolve our differences. We tried to keep it calm, but there was a lot of screaming and yelling. When she practically threatened to start shoplifting, we decided to take her concerns more seriously. We're wondering if a job is a good idea for such a young teenager. At what age is it okay to let her go to work?

• • • Cash: Many teenagers love the idea of getting their first job and feeling independent. Of course, as they grow into adults, they usually can't wait to retire either! Carry: Much like most parental decisions, there is no specific rule

on what age is appropriate for a first job. It should depend on the child's emotional maturity and your best judgment. Cash: Obviously your family meeting didn't quite go as planned. Screaming and yelling never really help any situation. Carry: First, you should be proud that your daughter is asking to have a job and not just an increase in allowance. It does show she has initiative, especially since she's been reading the classified section. Cash: It's never too early for her to learn good working habits. Having a part-time job on the weekend has a lot of benefits such as teaching her to be on time, developing self-esteem and hav-

ing a sense of responsibility. Carry: Some adults have needed several jobs to figure all that out! Cash: If you don't believe she is emotionally ready for a weekend job, there are other options you can try to compromise with her. Consider offering her a paid job around the house or maybe she could work for a close neighbor. That way she gets to make some extra money, but you get to make sure her schedule doesn't interfere with her schoolwork. Carry: Negotiating a compromise with her on this situation will go a long way to developing your relationship. That will prove very helpful when she turns 16 and wants her first car!

A study by The American Sociological Review found that how children spend their summer break could have a big impact on their future. Over summer break, kids often forget much of what they learned in school. However, those who were engaged in organized sports, read newspapers, visited museums, and engaged in mental activities over the summer break had an increase in academic achievement. They were more likely to attend a four-year college and reduce their dropout rate.

Celebrity Style

Not many of us had glamorous first jobs. So it may be comforting to know that even the celebrities started out simple. Singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani wasn't always a pop star. She started working by scrubbing floors at a Dairy Queen. Actor Matthew McConaughey shoveled chicken manure for a while. Actress Kate Winslet once worked at a deli making sandwiches. Even actor Brad Pitt had many jobs that didn't make the "A list", including dressing up as a chicken mascot, moving refrigerators and being a limo driver. •

Reader Humor Retail Reality

As the HR Manager for a large retail store, I'm always looking for good honest workers. Luckily with the new school season, I get a few students looking for a job after school. As if on cue, I had a young high school girl stop in and fill out an application. She was very meticulous, taking the time to answer each question. When she handed it to me, I took a few minutes to look it over. Under the previous employment section she listed "babysitter" as her last job. Before I could ask her about it, I laughed at the next line. Next to reasons for leaving she wrote, "They came home." (Thanks to Dorothy C.)
