Brewery Turns to Comedy Comedian Steve Sabo to Play Sun Valley Brewery BY KAREN BOSSICK


he Sun Valley Brewery will turn into Comedy Central Tuesday night when the Hailey brews-andburger house stages its first ever Comedy Night. Comedian Steve Sabo, who calls himself “the caffeinated voice of reason,” will take the mic at 8 p.m., following an opening comedy act at 7 p.m. Sabo has appeared on HBO, Showtime, Comedy Central, USA, the Laugh Network, Spike and CMT and has regular shows on XM/Sirius Radio as part of his “Caffeinated Voice of Reason” show. He has recorded several DVDs and CDs, his latest being “Mental Fornication.” “You know how it is when you’re driving to work and you’ve had 15 cups of coffee and all those little thoughts running around in your mind start driving you nuts? That’s me,” he says. The Brewery’s Sean Flynn says the comedy night is part of the Brewery’s efforts to provide a variety of entertainment. “We’ve been offering different types of music, including kids from Notes Music. This definitely is a way to bring something different to Hailey,” Flynn said. The dance floor in front of the stage will be turned into cabaret-style seating spruced up with white linen. The Brewery will offer special drinks and dishes that night, Flynn said. “Steve’s a pretty accomplished comedian. He’s been on just about every TV station over the past 20 years and he tours the country quite a bit. He’s very funny,” said Flynn. Sabo knows how to tell a story and has a talent for one-liners, according to those who have heard him. His act is “classy with just a touch of edginess,” said Darlene Wilmot, head of the Alpena Events Center. Sabo says stand-up comedy is our last remaining pure art form—a world of free speech where personal convictions and political correctness do not apply… a world of immediate gratification where in the blink of an eye you can elicit a response from hundreds of individuals. “That’s the greatest experience any one person can encounter in their lifetime,” he says. The difference between comedy and tragedy? It’s a punch line, he adds. Tickets are $10 in advance and at the door. tws

Opening a New Chapter

Nardagani Works Reading Miracles

Narda Pitkethly and Leslie Andrews tutor Sven Dickey, who says he looks forward to his twice-weekly reading lessons.



n February, Narda Pitkethly got a note from a desperate grandmother. “My grandson is 12 years old, autistic and cannot read,” wrote Catherine Hayward. “His teachers say he may never learn to read. It would be a miracle if you could teach him to read.” It turned out Pitkethly did have a “miracle”—a reading system she invented based on a method created 250 years ago by the Japanese to help readers learn the 10,000 characters that make up the Japanese language. Sven Dickey, who couldn’t read such simple words as “a” or “at” when Pitkethly met him, was reading five-letter words after just five lessons using Pitkethly’s Nardagani program. Two lessons a week and six weeks later, the Hailey youth had read his first full book— “Biscuit,” about a yellow dog. “I…am…going…on…a…safari,” he slowly read as he started a second book in his grandmother’s kitchen a week later. He sat the thin paperback book down and grinned from ear to ear. “I do like reading,” said Dickey, who has used a combination of memory games and codes to learn to read. “It used to be hard to read. It was difficult. I would go someplace and see a sign and not know what it meant. But now I like reading stories by myself.” Nardagani uses 12 symbols that tell what sound a letter makes to allay the confusion that comes with the silent letters and other idiosyncracies of the English language. “There are 14 letters that make more than one sound,” said Pitkethly. The letter “H,” for instance, has a main sound as in “horse,” is soft in “teeth,” hard in “feather” and “chair,” but soft in “Christmas.” It’s soft in ”sheep,” helps make the “f” sound in “phone” and “laugh,” and often disappears with the pairing of “gh.” Most students can learn to read in fewer than two weeks, Pitkethly said. In time, they’re able to dispense with coding the words with Nardagani symbols. “Sven’s teachers said he had trouble reading because his short-term memory was such that he couldn’t remember the rules of reading,” said Pitkethly. “The Nardagani system requires very little memory.” Leslie Andrews, who worked with disabled children for 30 years as a social worker, said she was a doubting Thomas after her first meeting with Sven Dickey. “I remember coming out from our first meeting and saying this isn’t going to happen,” said Andrews, who recently became a

Nardagani teacher. “Now look—we’ve taught an autistic child to read! He has a way to go—he’s not ready to read ‘War and Peace’ yet. But what he’s accomplished in such a short amount of time is amazing!” Sven’s father, Sam Dickey was equally pleased: “Sven’s come a long way in a short amount of time. His teachers taught him a lot but he seemed like he was kind of stuck on my name and the dog’s name and his grandmother’s name when it came to reading. And his teachers didn’t seem to have any answers how to get past that.” Pitkethly got the idea for Nardagani from her own experience learning to read Japanese in one week using the Japanese method. A person learning Japanese is given one symbol to memorize for each of the 40 sounds of Japanese. When China copied the

etchum has been named one of the Top 12 Small Town Art Places in the United States by ArtPlace. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting news,â&#x20AC;? said Courtney Gilbert, a curator for the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to see Sun Valley getting some recognition for something other than its recreation.â&#x20AC;? The 12 communities had the highest concentrations of nonprofit arts organizations, core arts-oriented businesses and workers in creative occupations, according to data analyzed by Impresa, Inc., a Portland-based firm that studies regional economies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A resort city of 2,689, Ketchum is a small town adjacent to Sun Valley, a popular ski resort. In addition to monthly gallery walks through town, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts is a hub of arts activity. The Center presents five exhibitions a year devoted to contemporary art and hosts a range of multidisciplinary projects including exhibitions, performing arts, family events, readings, and talks. For over four decades, the Center has organized a popular arts and crafts festival in August, draw-

ing artists and shoppers from across the country,â&#x20AC;? a synopsis from ArtPlace said. No mention of other local art treasures, such as the Sun Valley Summer Symphony, Sun Valley Artist Series or Company of Fools! Other towns on the list were Eureka Springs, Ark.; Crested Butte, Colo.; Vineyard Haven, Mass.; Boothbay Harbor, Maine; Lanesboro, Minn.; Highlands, N.C.; Taos, N.M.; Marfa, Texas; Stowe, Vt.; Eastsound, Wash.; and Saratoga, Wyo. Eureka Springs, a town of more than 200 working artists and a writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; colony, was lauded for its Victorian buildings and annual art festival with its Artrageous Parade. Crested Butteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arts Festival includes visual, performing and culinary arts. ArtPlace is a collaboration of leading national and regional foundations, banks and federal agencies committed to putting arts at the heart of a portfolio of strategies designed to revitalize communities. The listing is a new annual ArtPlace initiative recognizing communities where the arts are central to creating the kinds of places where people want to live, work and visit.








Ketchum at the Top





The juried Arts and Crafts Festival organized each year by the Sun Valley Center for the Arts was among the reasons ArtPlace cited Ketchum as one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top small towns when it comes to the arts.

The play revolves around a medium named Tabitha, who claims to be able to communicate with the spirits of soldiers who have died in the line of duty. Tabitha starts seeing soldiers who shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be there when the wife of a recently deceased soldier seeks her assistance in contacting her departed husband. The play reading will feature Fools Core Artist Denise Simone and Hanna Cheek, who starred in The Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; presentation of

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Commencement,â&#x20AC;? under John Glennâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s direction.

Wiederrick Starts E-Cycling BY KAREN BOSSICK


ob Wiederrick wants more than your cans now. The Hailey welder has gone into e-cycling, or electronic recycling, to raise money for public art in Hailey. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accepting computers, laptops, keyboards, mouses, cell phones, servers, power supplies and printers with the ink cartridges removed. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even accepting fax machines and DVDs. No TVs or microwaves, though.

Wiederrick said people may drop off their electronic gizmos at his shop at 4051 Glenbrook Drive, a couple blocks west of Power Engineers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do this until next winter. Since I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a covered area to put them, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably have to stop it during the winter,â&#x20AC;? he said. Wiederrick has raised more than a thousand dollars for public art in Hailey by recycling aluminum cans. Information: 788-0018 or 7202438. tws

t seems just when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve figured out my new phone, computer, or iPod, something faster, sleeker, and cooler comes along and another round of updating begins. But what do we do with the old stuff when the new stuff arrives? Thankfully, we have a lot of easy options so that the old stuff doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t end up in the landfill. The Ohio Gulch Recycling Center accepts desktop monitors, towers (CPO), laptop computers, power supplies, and batteries. If you have working VCRs, DVDs and stereos, check with the Wood River Middle School Technology Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;they are often able to use these items as teaching tools. Ink and toner cartridges can be dropped off at Janeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Artifacts and Copy & Print in Hailey, and Business as Usual in Ketchum. Cell phones can be recycled at the ERC, the Blaine County Annex, or given for re-use at The Advocates Attic. And Best Buy in Twin Falls accepts DVD players, home/car audio systems, computer cables, fans, MP3 players, and small cameras. Best Buy also offers a trade-in value for your equipment, and may give you a gift card in exchange for your item. You can find out more about their program at com/recycle. So between all of these options, there is a place other than the landfill for your outdated, used, sort-of-working, not-working, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-need-it-anymore stuff. Save the date for a free screening of the 2012 documentary, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trashed,â&#x20AC;? starring Jeremy Irons, on April 23 at 6 p.m. at The Community Library in Ketchum.

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recycle.â&#x20AC;? Has anyone ever said that to you? Singeing their ears with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;green is goodâ&#x20AC;? rant wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have positive results; try listening hard, instead. A common reason Americans give for not recycling is that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know when, where, and what to recycle, so perhaps they just need information. Some will argue that more energy is used to recycle materials than to dispose of them in the landfill, since collection of recyclables requires additional trucks. To counter this, you could explain that savings from recycling paper, for example, offsets this collection cost; in this instance, you no longer have to fuel the logging trucks hauling in trees for new pulp. Social psychologist Shawn Burn found that personal contact within a neighborhood is the most effective way to increase recycling within a community (and taping a note to their garbage can is guaranteed to be incendiary!). Other studies by Stuart Oskamp showed that people with neighbors who recycle were much more likely to also recycle, than those without good examples close at hand. Why not look for someone who might not recycle due to (choose any reason) and offer to do it for them? Earth Day, April 22, is an excellent occasion for you to reach out to your friends and neighbors. Perhaps you only need to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I recycle; do you?â&#x20AC;?

Two professional body paintersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Mark Greenwalt and Jamie Graberâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;began work at 9 in the morning, painting models who had been volunteered by such sponsors as Sun Valley Mustard, Smith Optics, Zenergy and Solutions that Stick. They used non-toxic, non-allergenic paint that can easily be washed away. Using the body as a canvas is definitely more difficult than painting on more traditional canvases, said Graber, who lives in Seattle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes longer. Models move a lot,â&#x20AC;? said Graber, who got her start painting faces at Disneyland before branching out to body painting fairs.â&#x20AC;?

ne of my favorite university classes at Berkeley was creative writing. My teacher introduced his students to Sherwood Anderson and his emotional, sensitive and artistic book, Winesburg, Ohio. It’s a book that I have read many times over and each time find something new and wonderful about it. It makes me smile and cry as well. The book consists of small vignettes of a past era in a small rural town in Ohio. The story revolves around the main character, George Willard, who is a reporter for the local paper. I am sure that Willard was a biographical character for Anderson because Anderson was born in a small town in Ohio and did eventually work for a publishing and advertising company. Each of the 22 chapters revolves around the secret life of one of the town’s citizens and many of these stories do include

George Willard in one way or another. It is thought that out of all of the literary material that Anderson wrote, Winesburg was his best. Even Anderson considered that the opening story in this book “Hands” was the first “real” story he ever wrote. All in all, the stories lead to Willard’s coming of age and leaving the small town and the stifling atmosphere that it presented to him. 1919 is a bit ago and you may think that these stories could be a bit “old fashioned”; however, I think probably not. I think that you can still find small Midwestern towns that have a similarity to this book. That’s one of the reasons that I find it a good read at any time because, for me, it’s timeless. It’s also interesting to know a bit about Sherwood Anderson. He influenced such writers as Hemingway, Faulkner, Steinbeck and Wolfe. If you’ve never read this book, try it for a good and thoughtful read. I’m sure you’ll be swept away by Anderson’s sensitive character evolvements as I was once again. Give us your feedback at tws

Series Concludes on a Charming Note BY KAREN BOSSICK


he was dwarfed by the 9-foot Steinway that she played on. But Japanese pianist Reiko Aizawa packed a big punch last Tuesday night while endearing herself to a crowded auditorium at the Church of the Big Wood. Aizawa, the local crowd discovered, is the complete package: She has a memorable story. She has passion and an uncommon skill. And she has a personality that resonates with the audience. “She’s brilliant… and to make such music with such skinny arms!” enthused Ketchum resident Evelyn Lee during the intermission of the final concert in the 2012-13 Sun Valley Artist Series. As the series artistic director Susan Spelius Dunning asked questions during a pre-concert Meet and Greet session, the petite pianist told how she elected to move to the United States to study piano at age 14 after having made her solo debut a year earlier. Her parents wanted her to delay her studies, she said, but the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia counseled against it. After all, her teacher— the renowned Mieczyslaw Horszowski—was 96 years old and there was no telling if he’d be around the next year to teach her! Aizawa won the prestigious Rachmaninoff Prize while there, despite fielding a full course of high school studies, in addition to learning English. And when others her age were starting college, Aizawa (who ended up being Horszowski’s last pupil) enrolled at the prestigious Juilliard School of Music as a graduate student. And soon she was rubbing shoulders with the world’s top pianists while playing around the world with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival and New Japan Philharmonic. In Sun Valley she played with a flourish, her arms heaving and sighing, her face lost in a dream world while playing some pieces. Her head worked its way back and forth almost robotically in time to other pieces. “In Italy this is known as the ‘Sunrise Sonata,’” she said as she launched into Ludwig van Beethoven’s extremely challenging ”Sonata in C Major Op. 53.” “She held the pedal down, which made for a beautiful blending of the notes. I’ve never seen anyone play it that way before,” said Kiki Martin, who got to listen to Aizawa practice for two days

Artist of Energy, Mimi Stuart, a newcomer to Sun Valley, added to the color of the concert with her musical note paintings.

since she and her husband Wayne hosted the pianist during her stay. “It’s wonderful watching her connect with the audience—so many performers just come out and play.” While Aizawa filled the concert hall with powerful music that had the pews pulsating, a new Sun Valley resident filled the sanctuary with art of note. Mimi Stuart, who calls herself an “Artist of Energy,” donated her vibrant pictures of musical note for the occasion before taking them to an art show being held in conjunction with the Juke Joint Blues Festival in Clarksdale, Miss. Stuart moved to Sun Valley from New York in January to join her family—Allison and Craig Poulson. She has portrayed a variety of musicians, such as Peter Frampton, in her work. tws

5 Steps to Reduce SpringTime Allergy Symptoms BY DR. JODY STANISLAW, N.D.



t’s that time of year again when the pollen is floating around, causing many to endure those annoying springtime allergy symptoms… coughing, sneezing, runny noses, and itchy and watery eyes. You can take medicines to block histamine or dry up your runny nose—which may cause drowsiness, liver stress, and/or they can lose their effectiveness over time—but as a naturopathic doctor, I have a different approach. If you have seasonal allergies, your immune system is overreacting. The role of your immune system is to be on alert for foreign invaders, like bacteria and viruses, and when exposed, the cells of your immune system replicate to fight them off. This process results in excess mucus, coughing, and sneezing. The body is doing this in an attempt to rid itself of pollen. However, pollen is not a deadly invader. Yet, in people with springtime allergies, the immune system thinks it is. So the question to ask is not just, “How do I stop these symptoms,” but to dig deeper and ask, “Why is my immune system overreacting in the first place.” The following inhibit the immune system from responding appropriately: sugary foods, lack of immune-boosting nutrients (gained from eating fruits and vegetables), lack of sleep, lack of or too much exercise, poor emotional health, processed foods, alcohol, and dehydration. Furthermore, a diet high in dairy and/or wheat can increase phlegm production, making symptoms worse. 1. So the first step in balancing the immune system is to address the above. 2. Ensure your diet is full of nutrients specific to enhancing your immune system. Eat spinach, kale, green/red peppers, carrots, cabbage, apples, oranges, cranberries, almonds,

margot’s table


seeds, ginger, and wild salmon. 3. Start on a supplement program that includes key vitamins and herbs designed to optimize your immune system and thus eliminate your symptoms. My patients experience great relief from following my simple protocol. Send me an e-mail if you want to learn more. 4. Basic avoidance tips: wash clothes and hair after being outside and before bed; avoid being outside when pollen count is highest (morning); wash bedding weekly in hot water; vacuum twice a week (wear a mask); avoid being around smoke; avoid cleaning products with harsh chemical scents; and do saltwater nasal irrigation daily. 5. Identify if you have food allergies. Food allergies cause a chronic irritation to the immune system, making it much more likely to overreact to harmless substances such as springtime pollen.

Poached Pears in Wine BY MARGOT VAN HORN


still have pears on my mind and I noted, passing through our markets today, that they are in full abundance. So I thought that you might enjoy one more delicious and prettyto-look-at recipe.  Either recipe, the one from last week or this one, makes for a truly elegant and simple-to-make dessert for a spring guest dinner. Poached Whole Pears in Red Wine 6 pears will serve 6 people Ingredients: 6 Bosc pears with stems 1 ½ C. red wine 1 ½ C. water 3/4 C. sugar 1 whole lemon, sliced 1 cinnamon stick Plumped raisins or currants (optional) Manchega cheese or crème fraîche (optional) Directions: Peel the 6 pears, leave the stems on and gently scoop out the blossom end (I use the rounded end of the peeler but you can use a melon ball scooper as well). In a large-sized pot, bring to a boil 1 ½ C. of red wine, 1 ½ C. water and 3/4 C. sugar. Place in the pot the pears, 1


whole lemon sliced, and 1 cinnamon stick. Simmer, covered, for 20 to 30 minutes, until the pears are nice and tender but certainly not falling apart! Remember, they will keep cooking a bit when you take them out. When pears are tender, with a slotted spoon, put them aside in a bowl. Keep on cooking the sauce without a cover over mediumhigh heat until the sauce reaches 1/2 of what it originally was and is thick and syrupy. Strain and pour over pears; or, if you wish, pour the whole mixture, with the lemon slices and cinnamon stick, over the pears; refrigerate overnight. Once again, add plumped raisins or currants if you wish. Serve the next day with a bit of syrup over each pear. Manchego cheese wedges or crème fraîche go very nicely with this dish as well.

movie review



s there a more hotly debated subject today than global warming? With weather systems increasingly wrecking havoc around the globe, are manmade greenhouse gases causing the seeming rise in temperatures? In the fine new documentary Chasing Ice it seems we have an answer that literally slaps you in the face. Part of the proof offered that things are radically changing for the worse is the fact of the melting glaciers at the top of the world. The resulting raising of ocean levels portends a bleak future and possible mass extinction.

Enter decorated nature photographer and daredevil James Balog who in 2005 became fascinated with photographing ice. This led him to some profound discoveries and, with the help of National Geographic Magazine, he set out to document what he perceived to be the most important story in the world. Using 50 stop-motion cameras, Balog installed them in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and Montana in some brutal terrain and called the project the Extreme Ice Survey. From 2007 until 2010 he ran the cameras and the results were startling and the proof of the warming is incontrovertible. Glaciers that had barely receded the last 100 years lost miles in length and some glaciers lost the equivalent of the Empire State Building

in height. Darkly beautiful is when Balog sends his assistants to camp out and see if they can get a ‘calving,’ or when the enormous sheets of ice break off into the ocean, on film record. When they luckily get the shot, a piece of ice the size of Lower Manhattan gracefully and magnificently falls into the sea to spectacular results. Of course, throughout the film, you are treated to Balog’s incredible photographs—some of them taken at great peril to the crew’s safety. But as beautiful as these are, the message of the film is never lost. The time for arguing is now over and instead it is a time for action. tws

he Wood River High School Chess Club sponsored an elementary school chess championship for area schools and Hailey Elementary School students came out on top. The Wood River Elementary School Chess Championship was created three years ago by Nick Bruck for his senior class project and the WRHS Chess Club has continued the concept. Two playing sections were available, kindergarten through second grade, and third grade through fifth grade. For the past two years, Bellevue Elementary School has dominated the playing field but this year Hailey Elementary students showed up in force with 12 competitors. Woodside and Bellevue elementary schools each produced five students for a tournament that totals the top four boards for each school and compares the composite scores. Hailey Elementary earned 16.0 points while Bellevue and Woodside earned 13.5 and 11.0 points, respectively. No other schools were in attendance. Individual awards, first through third place, were also provided for each grade, kindergarten through fifth grade, after five one-hour games. Winners were (first-third place): kindergarten (Erik Baker, Mathew Young, Leam Van Law), firstgrade (Emmett Stouffer), secondgrade (Owen Stouffer, Luke Baker, Darwin Porth), third-grade (Quentin Van Law), fourth-grade (Sarah Hattula, Benjamin Ertz, Jordan Organist), and fifthgrade (Zane Barckholtz, Alex Baker, Walther Kriesien). In addition, Owen Stouffer and

Zane Barckholtz each earned 5.0 points for a perfect tournament, and third-grader Quentin Van Law scored second place overall in the third- through fifth-grade section with 4.0 points. WRHS Chess Club President Desmond Porth and Vice President Anna Murphy taught players in between rounds and presented the trophies to the players at the end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could see the improvement as the games progressed,â&#x20AC;? said Kathy Baker of her son Erik. Erik won the kindergarten section. In other chess news, Desmond Porth and Dylan Porth participated in a world record tournament, Super Nationals, sponsored by the United States Chess Federation once every four years. There were 5335 participants in the K-12 tournament with over 40 Idaho students also playing, in Nashville, Tenn. Boise student and chess prodigy Luke Harmon-Velotti won second place in the nation! Also, Adam Porth won second place in the Magic Valley Chess Championship. The WRHS Chess Club will host the high school championship to crown the WRHS Chess Champion and the club will also provide a chess day camp June 10-14.

A Runnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s View of the World BY JONATHAN KANE


ood River High School junior Janel Passey is about to take a large step for her family and for herself when she becomes the first generation to attend college next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mom is from Argentina,â&#x20AC;? she said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and she has just become a U.S. citizen and neither she nor my father attended college and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the firstborn, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go. My parents have prepared me well and have taught me to try my hardest. They have also taught me a lot of life lessons and how work and dedication can get you to where you want to go. For me, the benefit of hard work is to see my grades improving and that in turn will help me get into a good college, which really makes me proud that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going.â&#x20AC;? You can also be sure that wherever Passey ends up going, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be running when she gets there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My parents said that I was always running, especially when we would go out for family walks. I actually started track in third grade by running the 100-meter dash and my earliest memories are of winning a lot of

ribbons and hanging them on my wall. As I got older, my parents started running and competing in half-marathons, so it was natural that I started tagging along.â&#x20AC;? Passey started competing in cross-country as a freshman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was pretty bad at first because I was slow but I really stuck with it and trained hard. By the end of the year I was eighth on varsity and was selected as an alternate for state that year. My sophomore year I got better but this year I trained really hard all summer and it really showed in my performance as I was the fastest girl this year out of 18.â&#x20AC;? Training can be pretty rigorous, as they alternate days working on distance and then repetitive exercises like running up a hill. This year Passey was also the team captain. Competitions during the season are about once a week and the courses are generally 3.5 miles long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Running is the only sport that I do, so I love it and it really helps get the stress out. I just like being athletic and I love that running gives me time to think about life and to be at peace with myself.â&#x20AC;? She is also captain of the track team where she runs the two-

mile, mile, half-mile and quarter-mile events. Last week her team of four athletes competed in Boise and broke the distance medley relay time for the state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you pinned me down, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to say that I prefer cross-country. I really like being outside and not running around in a circle. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more of a challenge going uphill and exploring new terrain.â&#x20AC;? Life will be full of many challenges for this bright junior but you can be sure she will conquer new terrains the same way she does on foot. tws

The 77th Masters Bees Colony Golf Tournament Collapse Disorder C A Living Well




ugusta gives the 1 Percenters a good name. The storied, undulating course is lined with flowering azalea bushes and crabapples trees this time of year. The charm belies the course’s teeth. Against the best golfers in the world, one only 14 years old, you earn your win here. It is the most coveted of the four Majors. The songbirds were so loud I thought they were just outside my window. Thursday was sunny, and there were lots of under-par scores. The day’s leaders, like Marc Leishman, mostly remained in the hunt the entire weekend. Leishman’s opening round of 66 held up through Sunday and kept him competitive. Overnight thunderstorms slowed Friday morning’s front 9. The sun returned for the afternoon’s back 9. Favored Tiger Woods got to -5 at one point. Forty-threeyear-old Argentinean Angel Cabrera, who hadn’t won in four years and was ranked 269th in the world, was at -5. Another Aussie, Jason Day, started to come on, and saved his best ‘til last. On the 15th hole, Tiger’s shot hit the pin and bounced into the creek. He retook the shot and ended up at -3. The next morning the rules committee, based on a call-in and Tiger’s post-round interview, penalized him an additional two strokes for placing his drop 6 feet behind his previous divot. Due to a recent rules change, he wasn’t disqualified, though many were calling for his head. Saturday was breezy and sunny. The greens firmed and the putts were breaking left and

right. Angel Cabrera was at -7. Aussies Jason Day, Leishman and Adam Scott, along with Brandt Snedeker, were close on his heels. Tiger lurked at -3. Sunday was misty, with intermittent light rain. The greens slowed and the players were slow to adjust. The lead scores stayed at -6 to -9. Jason Day was doing the best with an early eagle and consistently good bunker play. Late in the final round he had the lead at -9. Woods hovered at -4. The last four holes were played in steady rain. It was 8 a.m. in Australia, and everybody was watching. The Aussies love their golf. No Aussie had ever won a Masters. Greg Norman was second three times. Adam Scott and Day were both at -8, and Cabrera at -7 starting the 16th. Like yesterday, Day bogeyed 16 and 17 to fall one stroke off the pace. Scott and Cabrera were tied at the 18th. Scott sank a 20-footer for a birdie. He jumped up and yelled, ‘Come on, Ozzies!’ He got the largest roar of the day, but then Cabrera hit his approach shot within 3 feet of the pin, and he made his birdie, the first he ever made on this hole. He was the last man on the course, and sank the last putt to force a playoff. They replayed the 18th, both for par. The Par 4 10th, the toughest hole at Augusta, was next. No playoff here has ever needed more than two holes. Both players were on the green in two. Cabrera missed his breaking putt by an inch. Scott had a straight 10-footer, and he sunk it. Australia had its first Master’s champion. tws

UI-Blaine Extension Tips

olony collapse disorder (CCD) is a serious problem threatening the health of honeybees and the economic stability of commercial beekeeping and pollination operations in the United States. Since 2006, beekeepers across the U. S. have been observing the phenomenon called CCD in which the adult bees simply disappear from the colony hives. There are typically few, if any, dead bees found. The queen and immature bees (brood) are often found in the hives inadequately attended by adult bees. Why is CCD such a big deal? Bee pollination is responsible for more than $15 billion in increased crop value each year. About one mouthful per three in our diet directly or indirectly benefits from honeybee pollination. The Agricultural Research Service (ARS), the USDA’s internal research agency, is leading several efforts into possible CCD causes. According to the EPA there are a few theories as to what is causing CCD: increased losses due to invasive varroa mites; new emerging diseases; pesticide poisoning through exposure to pesticides; stress; and inadequate forage ( If losses continue at the current rate, it could threaten the economic viability of the bee pollination industry. Honeybees would not disappear entirely, but the cost of honeybee pollination services would rise, and those increased costs would ultimately be passed on to consumers through higher food costs. With emerging research, now is the time to understand the cause and treatment of CCD before CCD becomes an agricultural crisis.

financial planning

Taking a Balanced Approach M y daughter makes a great pumpkin cheesecake. While I have enjoyed my share of this dessert, serious problems would result if it became my sole source of nutrition. Predicaments can also result for individuals that trust solely in the group term life insurance coverage provided by their employer. In matters of diet and finance, wisdom often lies in a balanced approach. Group term life insurance has many reasons for recommendation. It is offered to employees by their employer at little or no cost. This type of coverage often does not require a health exam or rigorous inspection of the applicantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s background to determine eligibility for coverage. Significant sums of life insurance coverage often can be attained using this product. Initially, it appears that this type of policy provides superior coverage at a measurable price advantage. But, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s look a little closer. How is it possible for the insurance provider to apparently disregard the health history of the applicant when accepting the risk of covering this life? While the method for eliminating higher risk applicants for this type of coverage is not obvious, it does occur. The insurer usually

foregoes the health exam and background check, which are the traditional forms of life insurance underwriting. But, this coverage is only offered to someone that is young enough and healthy enough to be gainfully employed. The ability to show up for work and put in a meaningful day of labor is the alternative approach to controlling mortality risk. This key piece of information is instructional in understanding the major weakness of group term coverage. Once the insured becomes too old or too ill to work, he usually is no longer covered by the employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy. In essence, as the risk of mortality increases, the coverage lapses. In an uncertain job market, it is important to realize that an employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group term policy does not offer any coverage to the individual who is between jobs. Thus a job transition or illness could leave you uninsured and possibly uninsurable. That is why I advise having a whole life or term life insurance policy as the primary source of life insurance coverage. This approach provides an individual protection for the duration of the contract and is not interrupted by unemployment or deteriorating health. It has been a source

Spirit nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Motion Athletic School Amanda and Heath Norton


alking to these individuals was so inspiring! You could feel their excitement and passion when discussing their business, Spirit nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Motion Athletic School. These two are high school sweethearts that competed in cheer together back in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;90s. The first year they competed, in 10th grade, their team made it to nationals and took fourth. The next year their team was invited to compete in Tokyo and made third in the world! How cool! Amanda went to the University of Idaho where she continued to cheer while getting a degree in elementary education. Amanda and Heath, with three children of their own and a staff of 15, run a high-jumping, heart-pumping gym full of inspiring gymnasts and cheerleaders. As Amanda explained to me, so many gymnasts cross over into cheer, and vice-versa, that it just makes sense for them to coach both avenues. They have three teams in cheer: Tinys, 3-5 year olds; Youth, 7-11 year olds; and Senior, 10-18 year olds. They offer gymnastic classes, Mommy and Me preschool, beginner, intermediate and advanced competitive gymnastics classes. They offer a Ninjas in Training class, Zumba, and an extreme sport cross-training class for the freestyler in all of us. There is

no end to what they have to offer. You can stop by and bounce out some energy at their open gym on Saturdays, or Amanda Norton host your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next birthday party there with the disco dance lights and fun music. They love what they do so much that they want Heath Norton everyone to be able to participate, regardless of financial situation. They offer scholarships and trades. All families are welcome; â&#x20AC;&#x153;we will make it work,â&#x20AC;? as Heath says. They start with children as young as babies-and-mommy class, which they offer free. And, they have lots of classes and summer camp programs. Check out their website for more detailed information and to register for classes. tws

of personal satisfaction to assure clients in declining health that the coverage they have in force will still be in place on the date their heirs will need it most. This is especially true when the applicant is covered by whole life. But, either a term life or whole life policy can provide an essential foundation for protecting your loved ones. Because of the earlier mentioned benefits, group term coverage offered by an employer can play a valuable role in your personal finance. Imagine that we shared a lunch regularly. You would notice that only after eating a balanced meal would I occasionally indulge in cheesecake. Likewise, group term makes the best sense when it is a supplement to a personalized life insurance program, not the primary source of coverage. You are welcome to contact my office for more insight into your existing life insurance coverage.

The Idaho State Department of Education adopted the Nardagani Program to teach challenged readers in 2012. In May, Pitkethly and Andrews plan to test the program with 15 junior high school students in the Blaine County School District with the idea of using it next fall with local students who struggle with reading. Andrews says she looks back and wonders how many of the children she dealt with in child protective services had reading difficulties. “So many of the kids were bright but not successful in school—I wonder whether it was because they couldn’t read,” she said. “I think this system is magical. I believe it will be the next step in education.”

Spring Film Fest

The Magic Lantern Cinemas will begin its spring film festival this Friday, April 19. The 2013 Magic Lantern Spring Film Festival kick offs with “Not Fade Away,” directed by David Chase, the creator of “The Sopranos.” Making a splash in independent cinema, the festival presents “On the Road,” directed by acclaimed filmmaker Walter Salles, director of “Central Station” and “The Motorcycle Diaries.” “On the Road” is based on the iconic novel by Jack Kerouac and tells the timeless story of a young writer whose life is shaken and ultimately redefined by a free-spirited, fearless, fast-talking Westerner and his girlfriend. A big buzz at Sundance 2013, “Sound City” was the directorial debut of Foo Fighters Dave Grohl. On Friday, April 26, The Magic Lantern Spring Film Fest 2013 continues with “The Company You Keep,” directed by Robert Redford. Also screening at the fest is “A Place Beyond the Pines,” a new movie from Derek Cianfrance, the director of “Blue Valentine.” One of the most popular films from this year’s Sun Valley Film Festival, “The Sapphires,” takes place in 1968 when four young, talented Australian Aboriginal girls learn about love, friendship and war when their all-girl group, The Sapphires, entertain the U.S. troops in Vietnam.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, To say that the real estate market is in a downward spiral is an understatement. I wouldn't mind except I have to move to a new city since being transferred at my job. I want to sell my home, but I think most people turn away because it's an energy pig. My electric and fuel bills have really grown over the years and the recent rate hikes make it look worse. However, I learned that my state offers a tax break for those who make their home more energy efficient. The problem is all the alternatives I've investigated have long payouts. They require a big capital investment up front and can take up to 10 years to break even. I'm all for conserving energy, but not if it'll cost me money. Is it possible to make the energy costs on my home go down without large investments? I really just want to find a buyer for my house.

• • •

Cash: As Kermit would say,

"It's not easy being green." However, as fuel prices skyrocket and the cost of heating a home escalates, people are scrambling to find new energy-saving ideas.

Fast Facts Energized

Duane “Cash” Holze & Todd “Carry” Holze 04/14/13 ©The Classified Guys®

Carry: In addition, conserving energy not only saves your wallet, but it can have a significant impact on the environment as well. Cash: It's unfortunate that you need to sell your home rather quickly. As with any sale, real estate or otherwise, you can always command a higher price when you're not in a rush to sell. However, your need to move could force you to accept a lower offer. Carry: Before you make any improvements to your home, it's important to make an assessment of what will help sell it quickly. After all, while many energy-saving or other improvements can

help make a house more appealing, most will not give you a good return on your investment. Cash: If the goal is to sell your home, then look for areas to improve that will give your house curb appeal and attract potential buyers. For instance, if your windows are drafty and old, new windows could be appealing to buyers. If the old hot water heater doesn't work or leaks, then a new one that works properly and saves energy would be beneficial. Carry: You may be able to make small improvements to help with the sale and save the larger energy-saving ideas for your new home. That way your new neighbors can be "green" with envy.

Reader Humor Being Neighborly

Even with the continued rise in fuel prices, most Americans still use a large amount of energy. In the United States, nearly one million dollars of energy is used every minute of every day all year long. That translates to nearly $1500 per year for every household. So where does your money go? About 42% is spent on heating and cooling, 36% on electric and appliances, 14% on heating water and 9% on refrigeration.

Since I met my neighbor and friend 20 years ago, he's been complaining about the rising cost of utility bills. This year he was fanatical about doing something about it. He started by installing solar lights outside and a wood burning stove to heat his home. Then, he lined his entire roof with solar panels to create his electricity. When I was talking with him, he said he eliminated most of his utilities except for the cable television. "Have any ideas for that one?" I asked. "I do," he joked looking at my house. "I was thinking of borrowing it from you!"

Switched Off

"Off the Grid" is a phrase used to describe people or homes that live without relying on public utility systems such as natural gas lines, the electric company or municipal water supplies. While this type of living is not for everyone, it has great advantages to saving money and the environment. It is estimated that there are between 180,000 and 250,000 families living off the grid in the US. Since many third world nations have no public utilities, it's estimated that nearly 2 billion people worldwide live "Off the Grid". •

Bug Zoo Bringing in New Species STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


he cactus longhorn beetle feeds on cholla and prickly pear cacti. The sunburst diving beetle carries air underwater with it on its dives, much like a human scuba diver carrying an air tank. And the Chilean rose tarantula has spine-like hairs on its abdomen that it kicks off when threatened. These are some of the critters that you can meet at the 11th annual Bug Zoo Festival, which will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden south of Ketchum. The theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bug Zoo is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Elementsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Earth, Air, Fire and Water.â&#x20AC;? In keeping with that, the zoo has been expanded to included bugs and critters representing all four of the elements. Aquatic critters, for instance, will include aquatic dwarf frogs and fiddler crabs, the sunburst diving beetle and a giant water bug that grows big enough to eat crayfish, said the gardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Stephanie McCord. Earth is represented by an ant farm, red worms, hermit crabs and a tortoise. Air will be represented by monarch and painted lady butterflies and the eastern lubber grasshopper, while fire will be represented by such critters as the emperor scorpion, Chilean rose tarantula, cactus longhorn beetle, hissing Madagascar roach and giant desert millipede. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a leopard gecko, which comes from the Southwestâ&#x20AC;Ś west Texas, Arizona. Cold for him is 80 degrees. So, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to keep this guy in the 90s under infrared light just so he can feel good,â&#x20AC;? said Tammy Hood, education director for the garden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come out as a youngster, eat a bunch of wax worms and crickets, and hopefully someone will adopt him out at the end.â&#x20AC;? Hood is trying to land some additional showstoppers, including the tarantula

WhAtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme?

This theme of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bug Zoo is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Elements â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Earth, Air, Fire and Water.â&#x20AC;? The Zoo has expanded to include bugs and critters to represent all four elements.

WhAtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it cost to get in?

The Festival costs $5 per person which will include snacks, lemonade, crafts and a tour of the Bug Zoo.

There will be a Bug Zoo cocktail party from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 26. Admission is $20 and proceeds benefit the garden.

Also the domino roach, which looks like a domino with a white spot on a black body. The Bug Zoo Festival costs $5 per person and will include snacks, lemonade, crafts and a tour of the zoo. A Bug Zoo cocktail party will be held specifically for adults from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, April 26. Participants will enjoy cocktails and creepy crawly appetizers made from foods designed to look like caterpillars and other bugs. Admission is $20, with the proceeds benefitting the garden. The garden was able to expand its Bug Zoo this year and update its aquariums with some money from The Papoose Club. Some of the bugs will be available for adoption following the festival with the help of Thunderpaws, which will be able to help families seeking adoptions with suitable habitat and food for the critters of their choice. Next year students from The Sage School will integrate the bug festival into their curriculum, picking the theme and critters. Hopefully, the study can be rotated between The Sage School, Wood River Middle School and the Community School in future years, Hood said. tws

Leaders Get Ready for India, Mexico City For the Weekly Sun


or the past year, the Flourish Foundation has been working with 13 remarkable Wood River Valley high school students, as part of its Compassionate Young Leaders Program, to sharpen their leadership skills in a decidedly different way. These students have been learning mindfulness techniques and using these to develop unique approaches to their studies, community service, and to one another. This month these students marked an important milestone in their efforts. Thanks to the generosity of many local residents and busi-

nesses, they have successfully met their fundraising goal for their summer humanitarian projects in either Ladakh, India, or Mexico City. These students were responsible for raising a significant portion of the costs themselves, and in doing so had to engage community members in helping them understand how this program has helped shape their insight and leadership skills. Lena Roebuck, a senior and second year student in the program, comments, â&#x20AC;&#x153;My intentions have gone from being self-centered to wanting to serve the world at large. This experience gave me hope. Hope when I look in someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes. Hope that

there is a good future for man. And hope that I can be anything I want to be.â&#x20AC;? Along with fundraising for their trips to India and Mexico City, each of the students is contributing to local community service projects. Currently, the team is working on a countywide recycling initiative to inspire the community to utilize the recycling services offered by 5B Recycling.

Junior Ranger Day, Saturday, April 20 Each year in April, the National Park Service celebrates the scenic beauty, historic places, and recreational opportunities available in over 390 units. Hagerman Fossil Beds National Monument invites young people, their families, and the public to join park rangers in Junior Ranger activities on Saturday, April 20 at the Visitor Center in downtown Hagerman. The theme for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Junior Ranger Day at Hagerman is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life Along the Oregon Trail.â&#x20AC;? This year, the park is introducing a new program related to the Oregon Trail, which runs through the monument: Oregon Trail Young Pioneer Ranger. Children and their families will be able to check out a haversack filled with toys and games and complete activities in an Oregon Trail booklet. Upon returning the hav-

ersack and completing activities in the booklet, the new Pioneer Rangers will receive a certificate and patch. There will be other Oregon Trail related activities for young and old. Students can experience what life was like in the 1850s by dressing up in period clothing. Adults can talk with a costumed interpreter demonstrating what life was like for the pioneers who headed west along the Oregon Trail. Young and old can play dominoes, spin a top, and make a buzz saw hum. Everyone is welcome to join the Junior Ranger activities at the Hagerman Fossil Beds Visitor Center between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 20.

un Valley is fond of its parties. But high school students are inviting parents and other members of the community to a party that may be a little hard to swallow. The students—members of the Idaho Drug-Free Youth—are staging a reality party Friday evening to lead adults through scenarios that can take place when high school and middle school youth participate in underage drinking. A panel will be on hand to discuss the scenarios following the tour. Tours start at 5 p.m. with the last one taking place at 7:30 p.m. To get directions to the event, e-mail school counselor Julie Carney at or call her at 578-5027. Additionally, on Friday, April 26, they will make a presentation to Wood River High School students to inform them about what they can do should they ever find themselves in a situation with alcohol and what they can do to help others who may be intoxicated.

The indoor environment at the school is as enchanting as the outdoor environment with an indoor greenhouse and art room, kitchen for cooking the bounty from the garden, hand-made natural fiber toys and crafting materials, and much more! Camps will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, depending on the child’s age, and return transportation is available on a first-come basis via our 14-passenger van each day to McKercher Park in Hailey, with pick-up at 3:15 p.m. The Mountain School is truly one of the Valley’s most unique summer camp options and offers your children ample time to connect with nature while

Nurture’s Morning Millet and Oats Recipe



ell us why you chose this recipe to share with Weekly Sun read-

ers? We chose this recipe because we have served it to hundreds of kids in the Valley with great success—they all loved it! We have served it as a component of our Nurture “Food and Fun” Nutrition and Wellness Program, typically in conjunction with a lesson on whole grains. The recipe uses millet. That’s a pretty unique ingredient, isn’t it? The recipe uses two whole grains, steel-cut oatmeal and millet. People often think of “birdseed” when you mention millet, but the fact is that millet is a wonderful and tasty food. The oatmeal makes the recipe more familiar to kids that are timid to try new things, yet we are sneaking in a new whole grain (millet) that most kids have not tried. Millet has a very mild taste and can give a nice crunchy texture; the downside is that millet tends to dry out easily. But by pairing the millet with oatmeal, the dish has a nice moist texture that you might call “comfort food.” Once kids try the millet—and like it—it gives them confidence to try other

foods. Often kids’ palates can be tricky, and it can take multiple (over 10) tries of a food before an acquired taste develops. Your program is about trying new foods; what else? Yes, Nurture’s “Food and Fun” program definitely includes the opportunity to try new foods but also empowers students with knowledge about nutrition. The program gets them excited about making healthy choices. And once kids are excited, you can guarantee that they will run home and educate and excite their parents as well. How have you been able to provide this program to kids in our Valley? The “Food and Fun” program is thriving because of the growing interest in the program and the incredible support from local individuals, foundations and businesses. The Idaho Community Foundation has been a wonderful partner and has supported us through the Gladys E. Langroise Advised Fund, the Heart of Gold Fund, the Jim and Barbara Cimino Fund, the Donald W. and Gretchen K. Fraser Fund, and the Little Black Dress Club – Wood River. We are thrilled to have significant support for the upcoming school year from the Wood River Women’s Charitable Foundation. Schools and parents have been extremely supportive, and the Blaine County Education

Foundation has been a wonderful partner. We are also extremely thankful to local businesses such as Idaho’s Bounty who have donated inkind and monetary support. We are so grateful for the generosity that exists in our community! How can our readers find other delicious recipes? Please see our site (www. and click on “Recipes” on the green bar. We have many recipes on our site, all that focus on highly nutritional yet low-cost whole foods, such as whole grains, beans, lentils, and fruit and vegetables. Each recipe is priced out to ensure that it can compete, price-wise, with fast-food; each serving must be $1.50 or less. Our recipes also use equipment such as slow cookers and rice cookers that make preparation really fast and easy. Morning Millet and Oats uses a rice cooker to cook the steel-cut oats and millet. It never burns and comes out perfect every time. How can our readers learn more about Nurture? We have a really fun monthly e-newsletter that provides dates and information on what we are working on, plus a featured recipe to try.

To date, this program has served more than 22,000 students. The program encourages elementary-school-age children (grades one through five) to explore creativity expressed through the theatrical arts. Facilitated by specially trained Company of Fools artists, Stages of Wonder brings together storytelling, role-playing, theatre games and exercises designed specifically for each grade level.

The Writers Studio - Kate Riley 208-447-7808 •


he Writers Studio presents… Summer Writing Camp! Calling all young writers! All levels of writing, all genres! By exploring imaginations and the art and craft of writing for story, participants will have the opportunity to write stories in this weeklong interactive and uniquely designed writing camp.

In addition, Kate will cover other elements such as description, character development, dialogue, tension and pacing. All writers will have the opportunity to produce a finished short story. The act of writing is about the discovery of worlds both seen and unseen. By applying a wide range of tools, each writer opens

to this discovery and becomes more adventurous—something Kate has witnessed time and time again. A deepening of character and self-confidence develops as young writers learn to trust the process. This is vital to any writer of any age. Space is limited to five writers per camp. Fee is $160. Publishing Workshop! Five of Kate’s writing students, between the ages of 11-15, have won literary contests (youth division) in 2012 and 2013.

energy Kids Camp is the place to be this summer! Zenergy camp offers a wide variety of activities for children ages 4-8 years, such as yoga, Zumbatonic, acting, science, kidfit obstacle courses, and tennis, just to name a few. Kid favorites include little tennis and kayaking in the outdoor saline pool. Third-year camp director Heather Miller is a certified K-12 teacher, personal trainer, and the Wood River High School cross-country coach. Heather’s love of children, combined with her enthusiastic attitude and high energy, make her the ideal director of this fun-filled popular camp. Each day begins at 8:30 a.m. with our new drop-off at the aCommunity School campus,

where the kids will enjoy arts and crafts and games. Midmorning they will arrive at Zenergy for swimming and the highlighted activity of the day. Camp wraps up each day at 1:30 p.m., with a Zenergy poolside pick-up. Zenergy provides a daily snack—so children only need to come with a lunch, swimsuit, towel, and energy to have fun. The small six-to-one ratio of counselors to campers, along with a wide variety of activities, makes this an ideal camp for a day, a week, or your entire summer. As one camper said, “This is the most fun I have ever had! Can we come back tomorrow??” Make sure you reserve your space online today at zenergyts. com or by calling the club at tws 725-0595.

Zions Bank today announced it will offer a Furlough Assistance Program to help minimize the financial impact of the federal sequestration on the military, including guardsmen and reservists, along with Department of Defense (DOD) civilians and other federal employees facing employment furloughs. The program allows Zions Bank to modify existing loan and credit card terms for current clients, and to expedite the credit approval process for both new and existing clients, according to Brian Garrett, a senior vice president who oversees Zions Bank’s Military Relations program. Modifications will be considered on a case-bycase basis. The Department of Defense is preparing to furlough 13,000 employees in Utah and Idaho for up to 22 days over the coming months, which could result in a 20 percent income reduction to these individuals, according to Garrett. Employees facing furloughs are encouraged to visit their local Zions Bank Financial Center for more information. Internally, Zions Bank’s Military Relations program serves hundreds of veterans, guardsmen and reservists who work at Zions Bank — as well as their families. In addition, the bank offers a military internship designed to help veterans return to civilian life through a 12-week program that provides onthe-job training, banking work experience, positive networking opportunities and personal growth.
