avid Crow likes to describe lavender as “an angel of healing from the floral realm.” Not only does it calm and relax, it reduces the pain of David Crow burns and infections. The rose, he says, is “a gift from nature to your heart and soul.” A drop of oil culled from one of the 5,000 varieties of roses in the world serves as a romantic aphrodisiac. Crow, a master herbalist, aromatherapist and acupuncturist, is a world-renowned expert in the field of botanical medicine. He can tell how it requires 1.4 million handpicked blossoms to produce a liter of rose oil or how 67 blossoms comprise just one drop. He can tell how essential oils work and how to use them most effectively. And, he’ll do it right here in Ketchum when he presents a workshop on The Pharmacy of Flowers and Contemplative Aromatherapy April 27 through 29. “To have a teacher of his caliber come to the Valley is a real treat,” said Ketchum aromatherapist Wahnetta Trotter. “People come from all over the world to attend his workshops. And he’s going to be the keynote speaker at the National Ayurvedic Medical Association meeting in Seattle this weekend.” Trotter has worked with Crow, planting and harvesting plants for distillation at his Floracopeia farm in California. She says Crow’s workshop will benefit all medical practitioners, as well as lay people who are interested in participating in an olfactory feast of some of the world’s most exotic, rare and precious essential oils, including agarwood, lotuses and champaca. Friday’s lecture, from 7 to 9 p.m., is an introduction to The Pharmacy of Flowers with special emphasis on how fragrance and essential oils can benefit us in daily life. Saturday’s Pharmacy of Flowers workshop, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., goes more in-depth on the elements of flowers’ effects on the mind and nervous system—how, for instance, the aroma from pine needles can impact the respiratory system. Sunday’s Contemplative Aromatherapy workshop, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., focuses on the use of oils to enhance meditation and the use of meditation to study oils. It uses a combination of Buddhist meditation methods and Ayurvedic medical philosophy. People can participate in one or all of the workshops. Cost is $15 for Friday’s lecture, $100 for either Saturday or Sunday’s workshop. Those wishing to participate in the entire weekend can get a discounted fee of $150 for all three sessions. Those attending the entire workshop are eligible to receive 19 continuing education credits from the National Certification Board of Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork.

And, so, “The Lorax” will color the annual Bug Zoo Festival this year from background decoration to Lorax-flavored crafts and refreshments. “All the kids are reading the book and seeing the movie and it is a conservation story. So we thought it was a pretty fitting theme for this year’s festival, especially considering the Bug Zoo Festival is on Earth Day. And, being good stewards of the environment means providing a better environment for bugs, too,” said Allison Marks, the Botanical Garden’s education director. The 10th annual Bug Zoo Festival will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden near Gimlet Road and Highway 75. And this year it will be coupled with a Bug Zoo Cocktail Party for adults. Adults can enjoy Mosquito Bloody Marys, Cintronella Coolers and all kinds of buggy snacks at the event, which starts at 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, at the garden. And Sturtevants will set up a special booth featuring bugs and flies of interest to fly-fishing aficionados at the event. The Bug Zoo has become a popular attraction.

Ketchum Aims to Become Most Walkable STORY BY KAREN BOSSICK

steps. Then he stopped and pointed out why Ketchum needs to create a walkable downtown core. “Look at this,” he said, as he eyed the parking lot behind Atkinsons’ Market. “We’re already being forced to the other side of the street because there’s no sidewalk here. You have to zigzag back and forth with the sidewalk first on one side of the street and then on the other.” Whitney Werth followed Bates to the bottom of the hill where Main Street turns into Highway 75 heading north and nodded toward a sign pointing to skier parking. “It looks as if the sign is sending skiers out of town toward Galena, rather than to the Greyhawk parking lot at Baldy,” she said. “Warm Springs is one of the main roads coming into town, yet it’s so confusing here for pedestrians and bicyclists,” she added, pointing to the triangle in front of Backwoods Mountain Sports. “There should be a sidewalk here and a light.” Bates and Werth are part of a group of enthusiastic volunteers who have spent plenty of time

t was a first-grade day… a Bellevue Bears day! The top players were first-graders and they all seemed to dominate all the other grades. A special tournament (Wood River Elementary Schools Chess Championships) was first offered last year as a senior project for Wood River High School graduate Nick Bruck. We wanted to keep it going and build some competitive spirit between our area elementary schools. Last year, the Bellevue Bears won this championship. Who would it be this year? Teams consisted of the top four players from each school and only Hemingway Elementary happened to have a partial team of three players. The largest team was from Bellevue with nine players. WRHS Chess Club President Desmond Porth showed some kids how to avoid Scholar’s Mate and how to mate with a rook and king, and even how to avoid

some stalemates. Round two and three produced some sweet upsets where firstgraders beat fifth-graders. Owen Stouffer put his older brother, Garrett Stouffer, down for the count! Owen went on to win the rest of his games and complete the tournament with a perfect 5.0! There were some reasonable stalemates and the longest games were only 30 minutes. After round four, Hailey Elementary surprised the tournament with a half-point lead. Bellevue would have to pull out some strong games in the fifth round in order to win the tournament. Ms. Turco has run a lunchtime elementary school chess club at three of the four schools for fifteen years and exclaimed, “I don’t know who to root for!” Bellevue was pitted against Hailey on the top boards for the fifth round. On the top board, the game only went for about five minutes, with a quick version of Fried Liver taking care of business between Owen Stouffer and

Alex Baker. Bellevue player Quentin Van Law played another Hailey player, Collin Young, and decisively won that game. On another board—Bellevue vs. Hemingway—Darwin beat Jake Simon with a version of Scholar’s Mate and scored the quickest victory. The last round and the day belonged to Bellevue and the first-grade. It was an amazing feat to see Owen Stouffer get a perfect tournament against older and more experienced players. And nobody got shut out; everyone scored a point. Trophies were presented to first place and second place during the awards ceremony and medals were awarded to third place.

improve the quality of life in the community. Those involved with the Walkable Ketchum Project have walked over 56 blocks noting where there are issues with signs, sidewalks, lighting and snow and ice. So far, the group has compiled three full posterboards detailing places where wayfaring signs could be clarified or erected, lights installed and sidewalks built to make Ketchum easier to navigate. They hope the city can take advantage of federal grants to make Ketchum the most walkable resort in the United States. Wayfaring signs, sidewalks and lighting become more important as the population ages, said Dale Bates, a Ketchum architect. One area of concern is Sixth Street, a major corridor for those who live in West Ketchum. Not only do pedestrians have to zigzag from sidewalks on one side of the street to the other as they walk along Sixth Street but once they get to Main Street there is no streetlight allowing them a way to cross. Easy walkability also invigorates retail sales, according to a 1998 analysis by ERE Yarmouth and the Real Estate Research Corp. “Nobody ever bought anything in town from inside a car. If it’s

more pleasant to walk, people are more likely to window shop and pop inside various stores,” he added. “Chances are if you see people eating inside some place like Whiskey Jacques’, you might want to eat there.” Improving some streets might prompt people to venture onto streets they wouldn’t have otherwise, leading them past shops they might never have noticed before. Bates ventured to say that some people probably never cross Main Street west, even though there are nearly as many restaurants (21) there as on the east side of the street (26). Werth said she is excited about erecting signs pointing visitors to historical landmarks. “There’s a lot of very cool history in this town and it would be fun to direct people to those places,” she said. “That gives them additional experiences beyond what they might have had tws otherwise.”


The Walkable Ketchum Project will hold a Community Café from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19 at Ketchum City Hall. People will be able to view displays and offer suggestions. Those who would like to join the volunteer team can contact Dale Bates at or Jon Duval at

walking Ketchum’s streets this spring as part in the Ketchum Community Development Corporation’s Walkable Ketchum Project. The project is designed to make it easier for locals and visitors to navigate town on foot and bicycle. The committee wants to resign the town to provide better directions, along with information on historical and other attractions. And it’s prioritizing sidewalk and streetlight improvements to make the town safer. They want to present some of their ideas Thursday evening at the Walkable Ketchum Community Café. They’re inviting people to drop in from 5 to 7 p.m. at Ketchum City Hall to look at displays and offer suggestions. The Walkable Ketchum Project is the next logical step in an effort to revitalize Ketchum, said Dale’s wife, Peggy Bates. That effort began a few years ago with the KCDC’s creation of the Fourth Street Heritage Corridor, which encompasses attractive brick sidewalks, benches and art. The KCDC also created Ketchum Town Plaza, a gathering place with a stage, ice cream and crepe stand and fire pits, and Northwood Place affordable housing as part of its effort to

hat qualities make a role model? What special traits does a role model have that you strive to include in your own life? A group of Wood River High School art students set out to answer this very question through individual art projects this winter. For the project, students examined the concept of role models, each selecting a person they felt possessed certain important characteristics. Chosen subjects ranged from parents, family members and relatives, to athletes, movie stars and scientists. Students either drew or painted portraits from photographs. Each piece of art included a quote or single word that the student felt best exemplified the unique qualities of their role model—qualities that the

student hopes to incorporate into their own life as well. Students also included an object, image, logo or piece of clothing in order to provide a further glimpse into the lives of their selected role models. An exhibition of the finished artwork is currently on display in the windows of the former North & Co. building on Main Street in Hailey. The Realtors of the building, Paul Kenny and Matt Bogue, were gracious enough to allow the artwork to be displayed in the windows while the building remains unoccupied. The exhibit will be on display for approximately 2-3 weeks. Please take time to park your car and stroll by to see the wonderful work WRHS students have produced. You might be surprised to find an image of yourself looking back at you! tws

ood River High School senior Annette Taylor is a lover of the arts and pours all her passions into it. She began dancing at the age of four and she has been playing the piano for the last six years. But her new love is for photography and she has found plenty of outlets for her expression. “I used to end up stealing my dad’s camera,” she said, “but then I worked at Java my freshman year and saved up enough money to buy a Canon Rebel which works great and which I cherish with my life.” In 2010 Taylor attended a photography camp at Stanford University where she started to learn the basics of photography as an art form. “The camp was great and I fell in love with Stanford University, so I applied this year. At the camp we learned all about Photo Shop and the basics of lighting as well as camera settings and all the details of making a photo look good. The program was divided into three groups—photography, film and video games. In photography, we had about thirty kids and we made our own portfolios, which we shared at the end of the camp. The great thing was that I got to meet people from around the world, like France and China, so now I have friends from all over the world that I can visit. I first started fooling around with fashion photography with my friends. If we felt bored, we could always get dressed up and go somewhere beautiful and shoot. When we travel I’m more into the scenery and the ruins and I

want to capture the beauty of the place we’re in and not pictures of the group we are with. I like to use different lighting and funky angles of what the camera can see. I also have a lot of lenses to work with.” Due to her mom’s job, Taylor has been lucky enough to see some incredible parts of the world and to use the experience to sharpen her craft. “Last year I went with my family to Ireland and it’s one of my favorite places I’ve ever been to. We started in Dublin and then headed west for a twelve-day journey. Ireland has such a magical feel to it. History is all around you and every couple of miles you see a castle to explore and the people were so nice and welcoming.” She collected quite a portfolio while she was there. “I took thousands of pictures, mostly of green hills and cliffs and the castles. The scenery was so amazing and it was really green there. The coolest experience was going to the cliffs at Moher where we saw thirty sharks circling and I got some amazing pictures of it.” In 2010 Taylor had the opportunity to go to Ecuador and was able to stay in the Amazon for four days. “We were able to stay in the original forests and

the most memorable part was a visit to a small village there. The kids and their stories were so different. They didn’t know what a computer was and they certainly didn’t know what Facebook was.” Taylor also got to see Peru. “I took a lot of pictures there. It was very European and the history is so rich and interesting. The highlight by far was a trip to Machu Picchu, which is one of the most famous sites and ruins in the world. We took a ten-mile hike in along an old Inca trail and it was far and away the most difficult hike I’ve ever taken. When you got there you looked down on the city. You experience what the Incas saw and it was truly incredible. It was also late, and the park was empty, which was so cool.” But rather than being late, Taylor is on the precipice of an exciting life as an artist who has the gift to express herself. tws If you know someone you’d like to see featured, e-mail

He and his wife Elaine Phillips are among 170 volunteers that help St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center stay the course. Elaine works in the hospital gift shop, providing “retail therapy” and raising money for hospital projects. And Mike works alongside her, hauling and unpacking boxes as new items come in. They also serve on the Volunteer Core Board, a group of 30 that meets monthly to plan the Winter Ball and the May 5 Kentucky Derby fundraiser, which this year will have a bit of a Cinco de Mayo flavor. “We raised $100,000 for the hospital this year, $20,000 of which came from the gift shop,” said Elaine Phillips, who is among hundreds of Wood River Valley volunteers who could be

This year it went to the hospital’s efforts to provide more mental health services.” Elaine Phillips says she enjoys helping with the gift shop, which is open from 10 a.m. to 4 .m. weekdays. The shop offers a variety of items, including greeting cards, See’s Candy, jewelry, baby clothes, seasonal gifts for Halloween and Christmas and other odds and ends. “It’s not just for people in the hospital but anyone,” she said. “But because we don’t advertise, a lot of people don’t even realize it’s here. “And the core board gets involved in so much—we help with Souper Suppers every two or three months and the Red Cross blood drive. We’ve even fielded

a team for the Cancer Society Relay for Life, so we keep pretty busy.” Some of St. Luke’s volunteers have donated more than 2,000 hours, helping with everything from pet therapy to working the information desk, said Jenny King, the senior marketing official at St. Luke’s. “Though this is National Volunteer Week, the hospital toasts its volunteers each June with a luncheon at The Valley Club when more volunteers are in town.” tws

Advocates Carbonate Hill Climb

Reality Party for Parents this Thursday, an Engaging Opportunity to Help Many adults feel drinking is a rite of passage and think teen drinking and drug use at parties are the same now as when they were young. This view of “teens will be teens” can lead to devastating events that may have been prevented had families communicated and collaborated with each other to ensure that a safe, supervised and yes, fun, way for their teens to get together was organized. On April 19 between the hours of 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m., there is an engaging opportunity to help parents face the current realities and learn why and how we need adults to help change these dangerous social norms. Participants will tour a home set up to portray a teen drinking party with youth actors voicing concerns expressed by local teens and young adults. The “Reality Party for Parents” focus is on showing parents what happens at teen parties—the drinking games, access to drugs/alcohol (at times provided by parents themselves), potential predators who target

these parties, potential for kids engaging in sexual activity etc. At the end of the “tour,” a panel of local experts and community resources will meet with the parents to answer questions about what they saw, what happens in our community and tips and ideas to help parents protect their kids from these dangers and to be aware of the legal risks they face if one of these parties is held at their house. Before expecting our teens to make healthy, fun choices socially, we need to be brave and engage in conversations between parents. We need to not be concerned about being the “strict” parent or “the parent who can’t control their teen.” These judgments prevent parents from talking to each other and opening the doors to what is needed most to keep our teens safe and to learn how to socialize in fun and safe ways. When the parents aren’t talking to each other, the teens are in charge. We parents need to take the lead. The question is, are we willing?

Water Is A Resource, Too

We all talk about saving energy and money, but often we overlook water. Small things can help cut your water usage and, hopefully, in turn, your water bill. Many of these will seem like common sense, and they are, but if you think about how you use water throughout the day, you can help change bad habits into meaningful conservation. The simple act of shutting off the tap while brushing your teeth or shaving can save gallons a day. Shaving at the sink, instead of in the shower, can multiply that savings. Multiply that savings again by the number of people in your household and you can see how quickly a minor act can make a significant difference.

Living Well

Other actions can have just as much of an impact: Wait until the dishwasher or laundry machine is full before running. Fix leaky, dripping faucets. If your toilet occasionally “flushes itself,” that probably means it needs a new gasket. Installing a low-flow showerhead or toilet can save considerable amounts of water. Many will be unrecognizably different than what you currently use. Check online user reviews and you will see how many people have happily made the switch. tws Have a question or want to write your own ERCbeat?

Breaking down Fertilizing Basics

Fertilizing gardens and landscapes is important to maintain healthy growth and acceptable appearance. Under natural forest conditions, the annual decomposition of leaves, needles and twigs provide a fresh resource of minerals for plants to use. Landscapes usually do not have this nutrient source and are in need of additional minerals. It is important to understand basic plant nutrition and fertilizer application principles in order to meet garden fertilizer needs. Sixteen chemical elements are known to be important to a plant’s growth and survival. The first of these are carbon (C), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O), which plants acquire in sufficient quantities from the air and water. The other 13 mineral nutrients are acquired by plant roots, which absorb soil minerals dissolved in water. The required mineral nutrients are divided into two groups: macronutrients and micronutrients. The primary macronutrients are nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). These major nutrients usually are lacking from the soil because plants use large amounts for their growth and survival. Determination of the amount to apply can be made using historical need recommendations found in many garden publications, or using the results of a soil test. The secondary macronutrients are calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), and sulfur

(S). Fertilization with these nutrients is not always needed. Micronutrients are nutrients needed in only small quantities. The micronutrients are boron (B), copper (Cu), iron (Fe), chloride (Cl), manganese (Mn), molybdenum (Mo) and zinc (Zn). In the high pH soils of southern Idaho, levels of S, Fe, Zn and Mn are often deficient. Once needs are determined, calculating fertilizer application can be a daunting task for the novice gardener. First, nutrient content of the fertilizer must be determined. This information is found on the fertilizer package. The final information that must be accounted for is the land area to be fertilized. Once all of these factors are known, standard formulas can be used to determine the amount of any fertilizer product to apply. Organic materials are available that can take the place of inorganic fertilizers in the garden. Common forms include blood meal, bone meal, cottonseed meal, sewage sludge, composts, and manures. http://www.extension. htm tws For more information on Living Well visit your Blaine County Extension office at 302 First Avenue South in Hailey, phone: (208) 788-5585 or e-mail: website: http://

Serves 6 INGREDIENTS 2 ½ lbs. boneless pork shoulder cut into 2-inch cubes, or I used the thinner pork loin chops (with a bone), cut the meat into cubes and inserted the chop’s bones in the cooking process. I took the bone out before serving. Salt & pepper 2 Tbsp. olive oil (more if needed) 2 onions diced or thinly sliced (I like mine thinly sliced) 1 Tbsp. minced garlic 2 C. Italian-style diced tomatoes with juice (if you wish a thicker stew, drain the tomatoes before adding them.) 1 Tbsp. brown sugar Zest of 1 orange (removed in one long strip, if possible; if not, that’s OK) 3 C. chicken broth 1 C. dry white wine or dry vermouth 4 carrots, halved lengthwise, then cut into 1-inch lengths 2 parsnips, prepared like the carrots 4 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint leaves Vermicelli, for serving with the stew—rice is OK as well DIRECTIONS Parboil in very little water the carrots and parsnips for 3 minutes. Season pork with salt and pepper. Place the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat and brown the pork for about 6 minutes. Remove and set aside. Reduce the heat to low, adding more oil if needed, and cook the onions and garlic until soft, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes, sugar, orange zest, chicken broth, and white wine. Return pork to the pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for 1 hour. (If you used the thinner pork loin chops, the time may be only 30 to 45 minutes). Stir in carrots and 2 tablespoons of the mint. Season with some more salt and pepper if needed. Cook partially covered until pork is tender, about 15 minutes longer. Remove and discard orange zest if you wish; however, I think it’s sort of fun to keep it in. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of mint and serve over the vermicelli or rice. Since you still have one leftover orange, this is what I serve the stew with: a fresh lettuce that has thinly sliced raw red onion and cut orange segments in it; or I thinly slice some Brussels sprouts and sauté them gently in a mixture of butter/olive oil and some brown sugar. Right before they are done, I add the tws cut orange segments.

movie review

In Cold Blood Redux Jon rated this movie



t’s time to examine very interesting films by great international directors that never made it to local screens. Today we look at the wondrous German director Werner Herzog’s new documentary Into the Abyss (currently available on DVD locally at Video West). Herzog, one of cinema’s most influential filmmakers, has made a career exploring the human mind and the twists and turns that can take it into the darkest recesses or, if you will, the abyss. This can be seen in his masterworks like Aguirre, the Wrath of God and in a canon of amazing documentaries. Not known to wide American audiences, his last two documentaries—Grizzly Man and Cave of Forgotten Dreams—broke out nationally in a big way. Although in many ways a bummer, the new film delves into

popular material that typically dominates late-night cable TV. The story is an investigation into a senseless triple homicide committed by two teenagers in 2001 in a state infamous for capital punishment. The crime was over a car that the boys wanted to steal. Reminiscent of Truman Capote’s classic In Cold Blood, the movie unfolds like a true crime chronicle but the interest here isn’t whether or not the defendants committed it—they did. Instead, through interviews with the perpetrators, victims, family members and prison staff, Herzog seeks to look at the soul of the people involved and to examine why people kill and why the state kills. It’s not a polemic against capital punishment, although it’s clear what side of the fence Herzog sits on. The two men accused are sad, but what makes it even more riveting is that the childlike one will be executed eight days after Herzog films the interview, while his partner has received forty years for the same crime. Immensely watchable, Into the Abyss makes for riveting viewing and one you should put on your must-see list.

BEATING THE ODDS, from page 1 and pine branches on fire using a lighter and pages he tore from his magazine. “We practically slept on top of the fire we were so cold,” he recalled. “I knew no one knew where I was. I knew no one was coming for me. But I wouldn’t let myself cry or get angry. I knew it wouldn’t do any good and I needed to save my energy.” ••••••••••••••••



Fifteen minutes into the second day of walking, Peebler reached the top of Trail Creek Summit, the narrow 7,896-foot mountain pass that Big Hitch wagons used to descend while hauling ore from mines near Clayton and Challis. But his renewed sense of hope was short-lived as the strap on Lola’s bag broke and the dog and bag went tumbling several hundred feet down the steep ravine alongside the road. Peebler wasn’t about to leave his dog behind—he’d adopted her to fill a void in his life after the death three years ago of his father, Charles Peebler, an advertising magnate whose firm had created the “Got Milk” mustache promotions. In that time, he and the dog had become inseparable. So he sat down and slid down the slope, ripping the back out of his Levi jean-style cords as he did. He reunited with Lola but there was no way to climb back up to the road. So he ditched his daypack and jerry-rigged the strap on Lola’s bag, which he slung around his neck. And for the next 10 hours he slowly made his way down the creek, balancing himself with two sticks. “I saw the creek as my GPS at that point. I knew it would take me somewhere. I walked very slowly, very carefully, because I


knew if I slipped and busted my ankle that would be it. I kept repeating an old line from Jack Donaghy on ‘30 Rock’ that when all seems lost, the only way to win is to go deeper into the abyss. And that’s what I did.” As dehydration set in, the Wake Forest University graduate decided he was going to have to ignore the threat of giardia and drink from the stream. He dumped out his diabetic test strips and used the tiny canister to scoop water out of the creek. He was shaking so badly he didn’t know if he was cold or hypoglycemic. To be on the safe side, he injected a shot of glycogen into his leg. “I figured I’d rather have high blood pressure and not pass out than low blood sugar and pass out in the river,” he said. As night fell, the wet man took refuge from the biting 35-mileper-hour wind behind a misshapen tree trunk, around which he spread out more pine needles and boughs. This time, however, he couldn’t start a fire—his lighter had become soaked when he slipped in the creek. “By this time I couldn’t feel my hands or feet. I was as cold as I’ve ever been,” he said. “I knew I couldn’t sleep or else I wouldn’t wake up. I told Lola, ‘If I die, I’m happy to die with you, sweetheart.’ But I just wanted to not die.” Remembering how his Scoutmaster had told his troop to share body heat if they ever suffered from hypothermia, Peebler tucked his little dog under his shirt. And, to his surprise, both he and Lola made it through the night. •••••••••••••••• The chilly wind had killed whatever motivation Peebler had

left. And his swollen feet hurt “like there was no tomorrow.” “I thought, ‘This is just how it ends,’” he said. But the single-digit temperatures of the night before had firmed the snow and so he decided to give it one last push. He set out at 6:30 on Wednesday, April 4, with the first light of morning. As he trudged through waist-high beaver ponds, he could see the mountain slopes begin to open up. Finally, about 11 a.m., he followed some tracks in the snow to the road. “I said, ‘Lola, if we can get back on the road, we’ll be sleeping in a bed tonight,’ ” he said. Then he got serious with the little dog, which had never walked on anything but city pavement. “I told her, ‘Lola, this is it. We’re going to make one last charge and hopefully we’ll make it. But I can’t carry you anymore. I’m completely exhausted. I don’t have any more in me. You’re going to have to walk the rest of the way on your own.” As he approached a slight bend in the road, Peebler heard barking. The barking came from 12 dogs that “The Pet Nanny” Maria Corbit had taken to where snow forced the closure of Trail Creek Road. As she watched him from a distance, Corbit thought Peebler was drunk. Then she saw the little dog a hundred yards behind him “I figured he was someone who had driven out Trail Creek and gotten stuck. And I couldn’t figure out why he wasn’t making better time. I went out to him and he told me what had happened. I called 911 and helped him walk the additional hundred yards to a spot where the ambulance could get to him,” she said.

Todd Peebler shows the tiny canister— a canister smaller than film canisters— that he used to drink water out of.

Peebler was just relieved to see Corbit waving her hand. “I have never before been so happy to see another human being. I’ve never run a marathon but I felt like I knew what it must feel like when your body’s reached its limit and you reach that finish line,” he said. Peebler collapsed in front of Corbit, who wrapped him up. At the hospital, doctors told Peebler that he likely would not have survived more than a couple hours longer. After consideration, they decided to leave his feet alone. Though swollen, they had not blackened. Toni Peebler, Todd’s mother, said she’s astounded her son survived the ordeal. “Having been with him through blood sugar lows, I’m astounded he could survive three days without food or water,” she said. •••••••••••••••• A few days after being released from the hospital, Peebler said he still didn’t have feeling in his toes or fingertips. “If you were to ask me whether I was holding a pencil or not, I couldn’t tell you, except that I know I picked it up. But I’m hoping that feeling will come back,” he said.

Todd Peebler still has mementoes of his ordeal—namely, the Levi-style slacks that were ripped sliding down the ravine and the one glove that he still had when he reached the end of the road.

Corbit has promised to take him back to Trail Creek when feeling returns to his hands and feet. “I said I’d take him with a full-dog escort,” she said. In the end, Peebler said, he realized that money and material possessions couldn’t save him. “What did was a desire to see my friends, my loved ones again, a desire to hug someone I loved,” he said. “Doctors said they have no idea how I survived, that I should be dead. Well, I’m not. I survived and I’ve vowed to live a better life for my friends, my family and myself.” Peebler said his brush with death has caused him to reevaluate his life. “I got an up-close look at how short and finite life can be, and it scared the c--- out of me,” he said. “I would’ve been very disappointed if that had been the extent of my life. I was not satisfied with what I’d done so far and I would’ve been disappointed if I couldn’t fulfill what I thought was my potential. I feel I’ve been born anew and I’ve vowed to change my life.” tws

Balancing Men’s Hormones BY LUKE SNELL


ost people are quite aware of the hormonal change that occurs in women around age 50 called menopause. It has been well documented and publicized in recent years. What you may not be aware of is the fact that men go through hormonal changes as their age increases as well. We call this andropause. In fact, 39 percent of men 45 or older have hypogonadism (low testosterone), yet only 5-10 percent are currently being treated. Twenty to 30 million men in the U.S. have erectile dysfunction and most people think this is the only consequence of low testosterone. However, men with low testosterone can exhibit decreased muscle mass, infertility, and development of breast tissue. Studies in the last 5-6 years have linked low testosterone to depression, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular mortality, allcause mortality, and even diabetes in men. The need to restore proper hormonal balance in men is becoming apparent. Restoring a man’s hormonal balance can be achieved three different ways: 1. Reduce Estrogen Levels. As testosterone levels in a man decrease, the estrogen levels remain the same or even increase because testosterone can be metabolized in the body to the active estrogen, estradiol. This conversion occurs more frequently in fatty tissue, putting men with extra weight in the midsection at higher risk. Losing weight, practicing good nutrition and regular exercise are non-invasive measures to reduce estrogen levels. The enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to estrogen is also the target of some drug and supplement therapy. Zinc, Chrysin, Anastrazole and Letrozole all target this enzyme and can be used in various ways. 2. Increase Testicular Output. For those men with secondary hypogonadism in which the testes are fully intact but

are not receiving proper signals to secrete testosterone, increasing testicular output may be a desired option. This can be done with Chorionic Gonadatropin, commonly known as HCG (yes, the same HCG being used for weight loss). 3. Androgen Supplementation. The goal with androgen supplementation is to increase testosterone. This can be accomplished with the use of pro hormones, or directly through testosterone administration. Pro hormones are precursor hormones and require some conversion in the body before becoming testosterone. There are multiple pro hormones that have been successfully used, including DHEA, pregnenolone, and even progesterone. Direct testosterone supplementation is the most common method for increasing testosterone levels and has many options for administration. Commercially available products are available for intramuscular injection and limited strengths of topical treatment including AximÂŽ, AndrogelÂŽ, and TestimÂŽ. Compounding pharmacies can also make sublingual dosage forms, implantable pellets, and oral testosterone. Most commonly, compounding pharmacies utilize topical treatments at doses that are not commercially available. Previously mentioned drugs that block the conversion of testosterone to estradiol can also be added to a compounded topical testosterone preparation. As with women, these hormonal changes affect men to varying degrees and at different ages, but do occur in virtually everyone. By taking positive steps to restore normal balance, many men can regain vitality and zest for life and enjoy their mature years fully and healthily. tws

he “perfect storm” of sun and fun closed out Sun Valley’s 76th ski season on Sunday. And this year Sun Valley made a party out of it with snow volleyball, bouncy cubes, barbecued hamburgers and live music at the River Run plaza. Colleen Pace was among those who staked out a place early as friends like Kim Johnson paraded in with trifle and other goodies to celebrate her birthday. “I skied my 59th day this year on my 59th birthday!” Pace proclaimed triumphantly. Balderdash fun races had to be cancelled after warm temperatures earlier in the week did a number on the snowpack at the bottom of River Run. But no one was complaining after two weeks of what some said had been the best spring skiing they’d had in years. Guest Services substituted a hula-hoop contest in their place. And a plethora of Elvises, Scooby Doos and bumblebees paraded across the stage in a

costume contest, competing for sunglasses and Buffs. “This is awesome,” said Ketchum skier Marci Onofrio. “I want to applaud whoever thought this up. This has been 20 years coming!” The final skier count for Sun Valley Resort’s 2011-2012 ski season was 382,128.

“I am very proud of the mountain experience we delivered this season given the challenges Mother Nature presented. It is a testament to the skill and dedication of the entire mountain team,” Tim Silva, Sun Valley Resort Vice President/General Manager, said. tws

financial planning

De�ining Your Financial Plan

BY KATHLEEN HARRISON lthough most people have one, few can actually define their financial plan. Is your plan stuck in a junk drawer someplace, with insurance policies, retirement account statements, and other financial information tossed in? Are you adept at managing all of the accounts in your “junk drawer?” Does your insurance agent manage the insurance policies; your various brokers manage the stock and retirement accounts that are held by them, etc.? If you have an accountant, does he or she merely do your taxes, or does he or she also advise on tax savings through various investments? Has your attorney ever communicated with any of your other advisors? Who coordinates the junk drawer? Ideally, it’s nice to think that we are in the driver’s seat with our financial plan. After all, you are at the nucleus of your financial plan. Realistically, most of us are not well enough versed in all the parts of our plans, and rely fairly heavily on the insurance agent or stockbroker for their advice. As an insurance agent, I work off of the information that I am given. When a new client comes in for a consultation and doesn’t share all of his or her information, it’s difficult to get an accurate picture of what the client’s true needs are. Are the liability limits appropriate? What’s the purpose of the life insurance policy? The only way to determine this is to have an idea of the client’s total assets and financial goals. When your financial plan encompasses a variety of different advisors, do you share with each of them the actions you are taking with the others? As an example, it is certainly beneficial for you to include your insurance agent in any discussion with your attorney regarding the transfer of your estate. Is life insurance needed to pay off the potential estate tax? Or, have you set up a trust and the beneficiary on your current policy needs to be changed to the trust? How is it best to handle the policy? Should the owner of the policy be a trust? Coordinating with one’s attorney and insurance agent can keep


everyone on the same page with an agreed upon course of action. For someone who is just starting out, things like life insurance and wills may not seem to be a priority. Even if the cost of having a professional will done seems to be beyond your budget, a hand written will or one done through an online legal source will direct probate to handle your estate the way you want it to be handled. Even a relatively small estate, such as a vehicle and a thousand or two in a 401K, might make a world of difference to one sibling, but not to the rest of the family. Put yourself in the driver’s seat by determining your wishes ahead of time. For a young family, it can be imperative that they appoint a guardian through a will. Verbalizing to Grandma that you would like her to take care of the baby if something happens to you is fine, but will not direct the courts to make the same choice. How difficult it could be for both sides of the family if legal action were required to determine who will be the guardian of minor children. The smoothness of the transition for any child should be the first thing a parent considers. This is also an appropriate time to discuss life insurance. Benefits could be used to help offset the cost of raising your children. A junk drawer can certainly be the first step. After all, you do have the start of a plan in there. Not only do you need to inform your advisors if your status changes (a new job, raise, baby, etc.), but also keep advancing and changing your plan as needed with proper coordination of information amongst your various advisors. When the time comes to take the next step, don’t be afraid to obtain a financial planner to round out your plan. tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, Two weeks ago I bought a massage chair with a heater and massager built into it. It's the kind you usually see on demo at the mall. However, I picked it up from the classifieds for only $400. That's a steal since it sells for almost $3,000 new. I know because the person I bought it from had the original receipt and paperwork. I was so excited, I put it right in front of our big screen TV. The problem is my rambunctious son broke the massage mechanism within the first month. Now it only massages on the right side. While reading through the paperwork, I discovered that the previous owner bought an extended warranty that may offer a lifetime guarantee on the mechanism. Does that mean I can get the company to fix the part under warranty or am I out of luck because I bought the chair used?




Cash: With a rambunctious son

around the house, you could probably use a good massage. Although with your dilemma, it looks like you'll only be half relaxed. Carry: It's always a good idea to

get the original paperwork or receipts when you buy anything in the classifieds. In your case, it not only told you the original price, but it also offered valuable information about the manufacturer and warranty. Cash: The first thing you should do is read the warranty very carefully and determine if the coverage applies to your case. Many warranties limit their coverage to manufacturer defects and won't cover problems resulting from consumer abuse. However, some extended warranties may offer additional coverage with fewer limits. Carry: It pays to read carefully. After all, you don't want to ship the product back only to find out

the repair isn't covered. Cash: If you do think the warranty applies, contact the manufacturer and try to transfer the coverage into your name. Many manufacturers allow warranties to be transferred, however it is important to file that paperwork before you attempt to have it repaired. Carry: If you find the damage isn't covered under warranty, you can still contact the manufacturer to find a local dealer who can service the product. Since you bought the chair at such a great price, it may be worth the cost to have it repaired. Cash: Otherwise you'll have to sit in it upside down to massage your left side.

Do you buy extended warranties on new products? If so, you're not alone. According to Consumer Reports, shoppers to spend over $1.6 billion on extended warranties . However according to their research, extended warranties are rarely worth the cost. Most electronics and appliances today are very reliable which makes those unused warranties very profitable for retailers and manufacturers. Most consumers also admit to wanting a newer model with updated features when their product finally breaks.

Whether it's from commuting, deadlines, or long hours, many jobs bring about a lot of stress. More and more workers suffer from physical problems like high blood pressure, headaches, achy muscles, and loss of sleep because of the stress experienced in their work environment. A recent report by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, found that 40% of workers report their job to be "very" or "extremely" stressful. Nearly 550 million working days are lost annually from stress related absenteeism. •



Reader Humor Stressing Out

Working at a weekly magazine makes my office very fast paced. Most newly hired employees go crazy trying to keep up with the multiple projects and deadlines. That's exactly what happened to my new assistant. When I walked into the office one afternoon, I found her struggling to answer the phones while printing reports and swimming through a sea of papers on her desk. Noticing she was near a breakdown, I went over to calm her down. "The only way to do this," I said, "is to concentrate on one task at a time." After a few deep breathes I continued, "Now what are you going to do first?" Surprisingly she replied, "I'm going to lunch!" (Thanks to Leah M.)

hat will the world look like in 3000? Will journeys to other planets be as common as driving to Canada? Will we have met others from other planets, and do they look like us? What will our houses look like… our cars? What will we be eating and wearing? Our clay camp kids will use their ingenuity and creativity to come up with a new worldview. Beth Bundy, Keith Moses and Gabe Ohlssen will lead our futurists in their exploration of the year 3000. Classes start on July 9 and are open to all children ages 7 to 12. There are five sessions, each session is one week, and class times are 9:30 a.m. to noon. Tuition is $135 for one session, with a $50 deposit required for each registration. These futurists will hand build and learn to pinch a pot, roll a coil, extrude a tube and cut out slabs. Martian masks, space

vehicles and Main Street dioramas are all on the agenda. The teenagers are not forgotten in our summer plans. Lauren Street will teach these young adults how to throw pots on our wheels. Our beginners will make all things round—bowls, mugs and hand build a popcorn bowl. The intermediate class will do bigger bowls, pitchers and ice cream goblets. A good and messy time will be had by all! A beginning class will start on July 23 and August 6 from 1:30 to 4 p.m. The intermediate class begins on July 30. Each class is one week long and tuition is $150. A $50 deposit is required with each registration. Class size is limited. Early registration is suggested.

UMMER CAMP FOR BABIES (with mommy and/or daddy, of course!). Think your three-month-old infant is too small for camp? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll change your mind when you experience Debra Drakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-week summer creative movement program for BABIES at her MOVE studio in Ketchum. This program is especially valuable for new mothers who may not yet be entirely confident in their roles. (Did you think you were the only one?) Is your baby growing up? Debra also offers summer programs for WADDLERS (pre-walking to two years) and TODDLERS (2 to

4 years). They are designed for you and your child to have fun TOGETHER, and to encourage your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balanced brain development. These are the critical years during which childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brains develop and their personalities take shape. Debra uses the Nurturing Pathways curriculum developed by Christine Roberts in Seattle. Roberts draws on insights from neuroscientists, child development specialists, and attachment theory psychologists. Her guiding principle is that movement and sensory experience stimulate the growth of neural pathways in the brain. The more

varied the movements and experiences, the more complex and balanced the neural circuitry becomes. The program also fosters healthy bonding between you and your child, as you develop intimacy and trust while playing together. Secure attachment gives your child confidence to experiment with unfamiliar movements and explore an everenlarging world of sensory experience â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which in turn stimulates healthy neural growth. Learn more about the program at www.mindfulmovement4kids. com. Or ask Debra for informatws tion at 721-0444.

Junior Golf Camp

t. Thomas Playhouse, a local favorite community performing arts organization, is offering its outstanding COMPANY B PERFORMING ARTS DAY CAMP for kids ages 4-13 right after school is dismissed—Monday, June 11 to Saturday, June 23. The younger set, 4-7 years, attends from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and youth from 8-13 years attend from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. daily. Our professional team of theater and music instructors teaches the campers acting, singing, movement and choreography, culminating in one big show, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jr., June 21-23. The shows are at The Community School Theater at 2 p.m. Also, COMPANY B CLUB, an afternoon daycare until 3 p.m., is offered for the younger

children, ages 4-7. Scholarships are available. For more info and to register, call Sara: 726-5349, ext. 16. For youth 10-18 years, the SUMMER PERFORMING ARTS CONSERVATORY CAMP (SPACC) is ideal for more in-depth study and FUN! The sleep-away camp is held at beautiful Camp Perkins in the Sawtooth Mountains June 25-June 30. Three outstanding guest artists from around the country, along with local professionals, teach the campers acting, singing, film, dancing, and rock band. Afternoons are reserved for outdoor activities around the lake, arts and crafts, and private lessons. Scholarships are available. For more info and to register, call Sara: tws 726-5349, ext. 16.

It is important to prepare your child for a camp experience, whether it is for a one-week sleep away camp near your town or a four-week camp out-of-state. Visit the camp, if at all possible, and meet the camp director. Have your child spend a weekend with a friend. No phone calls. Talk about it with your child afterwards. Go over the daily schedule with your child so there are no surprises. Teach your child how to care for him/herself, from selecting appropriate clothing, to making a bed. Problem solve with your child by using “what if” situations to prepare for unexpected events. Familiarize your child with the outdoors. Practice walking in the dark with a flashlight. Homesickness is fairly common. Missing home, parents, pets or friends is pretty normal. It is part of growing up and leaving home. Speak openly about it and your child will experience these feelings with less anxiety and more understanding. Discuss communication at camp. Does your camp allow phone calls? Give your child stamped envelopes and postcards already addressed. Practice letter writing. The more your child writes to others, the more mail he/she will receive! Communicate with camp officials. Let them know if there are special circumstances or considerations regarding your child’s well being or behavior. Send letters to your child before camp begins so mail is waiting when he/she arrives. Keep it simple. Prepare yourself for your child going off to camp. Your child will have a wonderful summer full of fun, new friends, new songs and many exciting experiences.

We are seeking an individual with innovative ideas to help the fair continue to improve and grow while remaining the cultural showplace for Blaine County agriculture and youth-related projects. We want your ideas on maintaining a family-oriented atmosphere at the fair at a reasonable cost to the patrons while helping the fair remain a social, educational and economic asset to the citizens of Blaine County. If you are interested contact the Blaine County Commissioners’ office at 208-788-5500.
