arl Nordstrom gestures past a lift sitting on the stage at the Community Campus toward three catwalks used to suspend lighting instruments and microphones above the stage. “It used to be we had to use this lift to get up to the top of the ceiling to change lights. Now we not only have the catwalks for that but we have poles in the theater for extra side lights and a spot in back for a spotlight,” he said. Nordstrom and students involved in the Wood River High School’s Performing Arts Academy got their first taste of the newly remodeled Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater last week. And they’re liking what they see. No longer do they have to build sets on stage; they can build them in the adjacent art shop and roll them through giant doors built for that purpose onto the stage. They have a state-of-the art lighting system and actual dressing rooms that they can change in. And not only do they have a stateof-the-art sound system, they can hear one another more clearly on stage. “We didn’t even have a sound system before,” Nordstrom said. “We had to bring in speakers every time we did something.” The public will get to see the improvements for themselves when the newly christened Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater at 1050 Fox Acres Road is unveiled tonight. The open house starts at 5:30 p.m. Chartwell’s Café will provide refreshments. And there’ll be tours of the Community Campus, along with performances by the B-Tones men’s singing group and Sun Valley Summer Symphony music students and a bouncy house for kids to play in. A ribbon-cutting and performing arts showcase will follow at 7 p.m. in the new theater. The Wood River High School drama program will present a preview of “Seussical the Musical,” which it will stage Thursday through Saturday. There also will be performances from the school’s orchestra, band and choir, which just returned from a music competition in Anaheim, Calif., with a slew of gold and silver trophies. The remodel transforms the facility from a school lecture hall built in 1978 to a first-rate theatrical setting that can accommodate every need in the community, including lectures, plays, dance and choral music, said Footlight Dance Director Hilarie Neely. Neely served on the board that planned the theater, along with Nordstrom, vocal instructor Max Stimac,

lex Hamlin was eight when he fell in love with films while threading the projector at the Magic Lantern Cinemas that his mother managed. Today, that love is taking the 26-yearold Wood River Valley native from the bottom of the world to the top as he films the world’s greatest ultra-runner in his quest to circle the world from top to bottom and bottom to top again. The documentary will depict Jesper Kenn Olsen as he makes friends with the inhabitants of the jungles of Colombia and the deserts of Sudan, whom he says were extremely friendly despite hostilities between Sudan and his native Denmark over a cartoon of Mohammad published in a Danish newspaper. The film will also explore the body’s physical and mental capacity to run the equivalent of a marathon each day for an extended amount of time. “Actually, the physical aspect is not as interesting because the body is so capable of adapting. More interesting is the mental aspect, which is more difficult,” said Alex, himself an endurance athlete and All-American Nordic racer who’s joined Olsen on his runs when not filming or driving the support vehicle. “Jesper is very focused on long-term goals. In the short term, he can get frustrated if he takes the wrong turn. Some days he’s happy, having a good time. Other days are tougher because of the weather or running along exposed roads. He runs quietly… no music. I think he uses it almost as meditation. He’s not a spiritual guy

but he’s grounded.” Jesper Kenn Olsen chalked up a world record 16,300 miles running around the world horizontally in 22 months during 2004 and 2005. In 2008 the Danish runner, who has degrees in political science and law, set out to chalk up another 25,000 miles on his Ecco and BiomC running shoes, running from Scandinavia through the mountains of Transylvania, along the Suez Canal where soldiers stopped him at gunpoint and across the Sahara Desert to the beaches at Cape Good Hope. He currently is running from Punta Arenas, Chile, to Newfoundland. Alex started filming the first leg of that journey in April 2011, spending three months on the road with Olsen through some of Chile’s most isolated stretches, up an 18,000-foot mountain pass in Bolivia that the support car wouldn’t climb and through off-road sand that mired the car but not Olsen. He and Olsen have been invited into the homes of miners who gave them copper-laced rocks. And they’ve learned about the idiosyncracies of countries and cultures, experiencing a two-week delay at the Chilean border, for instance, after learning that non-Chileans can’t take Chilean cars into Peru. “He’s really learned self-sufficiency. He’s learned to condense his life into a bag and live on $500 a month,” said

Cindy Hamlin, Alex’s mother. Alex made his first film for a sixthgrade project on Canada, using stop-action photography with claymation-type figures he’d created. The teacher kept it until she retired to inspire creativity in her students, Cindy said. In high school Alex rented all the films from the silent film era and spent hours studying them. He dressed his friends in Mafioso-type trench coats for a silent film he titled “Loaded Dice.” And a silent film he made for his senior project at Wood River High School in 2004 caught the attention of Bobby Farrelly, who directed “There’s Something About Mary,” “Dumb and Dumber” and “The Three Stooges: The Movie.” Farrelly was so impressed by the flick about a down-on-his-luck guy who finds a bag full of money that he gave Alex his phone number and told him to keep in touch. Alex continued to make short comedies featuring himself and claymation figures

Northern Rockies Folk Fest Lineup Announced BY KAREN BOSSICK

R

osie Ledet, a Creole zydeco accordion player from Iota, La., will headline the 35th Annual Northern Rockies Folk Festival this coming August. The two-day festival will be held Aug. 3 and 4 at Hop Porter Park in Hailey. Ledet and the Zydeco Playboys, whose sultry and suggestive lyrics have filled nine albums, will headline Friday night’s performance. Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit will headline Saturday’s lineup. Isbell, of Muscle Shoals, Ala., is a former member of the DriveBy Truckers. Known for his songwriting, Isbell and his band play a rootsy kind of music that “Spin” magazine has characterized as “earthy and unpretentiously eclectic and bluesy.” Friday’s lineup, from 5 to 10 p.m., will feature local singer Steph Sloan, who is studying at

Berklee College of Music, and Elephant Parade. Also locals Olin and the Moon, who are now based in Los Angeles. Saturday’s lineup, which starts at noon, will feature The Penny Hens of Sonoma, Calif.; Izzy Taylor; the Gypsy River Haunts from Los Angeles; Intersection; the Random Canyon Growlers from Jackson, Wyo.; and Carrie Rodriguez of Austin, Texas. The Random Canyon Growlers, a bluegrass group from Jackson, made plenty of friends in the Sun Valley area just this past weekend with an energetic afternoon of bluegrass outside Apple’s Bar and Grill that set hundreds of feet to tapping and dancing. Festival tickets are $15 for Friday, $25 for Saturday and $35 for an all-weekend pass. Tickets are available at www.northernrockiesfolkfestival.com, Albertsons, Chapter One Bookstore and Shelley’s Deli. tws

Free Playreading on Monday BY KAREN BOSSICK

I

t’s not far-fetched to think that anyone living in the dog-happy Wood River Valley would think “Four Dogs and a Bone” was written for them. But, in truth, it’s John Patrick Shanley’s tell-all-tale about Hollywood. “John Patrick Shanley wrote the screenplay for the Oscarwinning ‘Moonstruck’ and this is his reaction to working in Hollywood,” said Jon Kane. “It’s one of the funniest plays he’s written.” Sun Valley-area residents get to sample that humor for themselves at 6:30 p.m. Monday when Kane directs a free play reading as part of the nexStage Theatre’s play reading series. The reading stars Pamela Sue Martin, who tasted Hollywood for herself during a successful career on TV’s “Dynasty” and “Brenda Starr.” It also features Scott Creighton, who can make people laugh just by scrunching his face; the happy-go-lucky Andrew Alburger who, like Creighton, has performed with Company of Fools, as well as nexStage Theatre and St. Thomas Playhouse. And Charlotte Hemmings, who has amazed audiences with her talent as a frequent cast member of

the play readings. The play revolves around four people who are groveling for control of a film— the bone, Pamela Sue Martin in this case— that is failing miserably. The young starlet wants to be a star but must convince the sleazy over-the-edge producer that the other actress is in her way. The older actress, meanwhile, is trying to convince the naïve screenwriter to rewrite the script to make her the heroine before, she says, it bypasses the big screen and goes straight to video. “If you’re going to write a satire about the movie business at this very late date, it had better be very, very funny. In the case of ‘Four Dogs and a Bone,’ that criterion is most abundantly met,” said a reviewer for The New York Times. The nexStage Theatre will serve complimentary wine and cookies. tws

t’s spring and that means it’s time to build those birdhouses. And, no, building birdhouses is not just for the birds. The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley is wanting some enterprising animal lovers to step forward and build birdhouses for the fifth annual Birdhouse Festival. The birdhouses will be auctioned off as part of the Dog Days of Summer, the shelter’s annual gala fundraising event at Trail Creek Cabin. This year’s Birdhouse Festival will be juried with competition in eight categories: Most Artistic, Best Architectural Inspiration, Best Engineering Feat, Most Idaho Rustic, Best Craftsmanship, Best Sun Valley Landmark, Best Found Objects as Birdhouse, and Best in Show. They can be functional homes for the birds or artistic masterpieces that can be displayed in homes.

Sandra, Rick and Evan Hasselbacher created this “long john” outhouse for the Dog Days of Summer last year.

Birdhouses are due by Friday, June 29. They can be dropped off at Sun Valley Brokers, 680 Sun Valley Road in Ketchum from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays. Info: 208-788-4351 or www. animalshelterwrv.org tws

arsha Riemann has served on the Bellevue City Council and has worked for a number of agencies, including the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office and as Blaine County clerk. One of her most memorable jobs, she says, was with the Blaine Soil Conservation District where she would snowshoe up toward Galena Summit and even drop into areas by helicopter to collect snow and water data. “We’d take snowmachines out Fish Creek near Carey, and often a lot of other people would accompany us,” she recalled. “They’d go up the hills and gun down the hills, keeping their eyes on us all the time.” Riemann’s part in forging the Wood River Valley’s history is one of the reasons that the Kiwanis Club nominated Riemann for the Blaine County Heritage Court. Riemann is one of four women named to the court, which was organized to pay homage to women who have made the Valley what it is today. Other women selected for this year’s court: Mary Ann Knight, a longtime dental assistant who likes to say she “retired three dentists.” Knight was nominated for this year’s court by The Papoose Club for her work with 4-H and the Sawtooth Rangers Riding Club where she organized the tea for rodeo royalty each summer.

One Breath at a Time BY JONATHAN KANE

S

age School junior Keah Jones lives a disciplined life. And she owes much of this to being a dancer since she was three years old with Footlight Dance Centre. “It’s been a really big part of who I am,� Jones said. “You have to show up and be prepared for every class. No dance, no work and no reward. I’m working with the Compassionate Young Leaders and we have been fundraising to go to India and we just reached our goal. By raising all the money, we put in the effort and did the work and now we’ll be reaping the rewards. I’ve had so many experiences like that and I can thank dancing for the preparation.� Jones stopped dancing two years ago to pursue other things, “but I love the family it created. All the girls I started with are still my best friends. I also love performing and being out in front of people. That’s what I like so much about being involved with adaptive sports, but it can be anything related to communication, like dancing or acting or speaking.� One of the things that has garnered Jones’s focus in the last two years is the discipline of yoga and meditation. “I always wanted to try yoga, so I eventually went to a class with Beth Stuart and I was hooked. Today I help Beth with teaching a kids’ yoga class on Tuesday and Thursday. It’s so rewarding. You get to see little kids come in with so much energy and at the end of class they are so calm. It’s amazing to see them so relaxed.� Yoga also seemed like a natural extension of her life. “I was raised in a family where we were taught you have to listen to yourself and your body and what’s affecting you emotionally. It’s made me feel whole and connected and able to get inside myself and to be in touch with my body. We find ourselves running around in constant transition from work and home and school and activities. People just don’t take a second for themselves. Yoga allows you to stop and focus on yourself and to be connected and in touch with your whole being.� Right now Jones is taking three classes a week and teaches two others. She has also undertaken meditation as an adjunct to yoga. “The first time I did it was at The Sage School where the junior and senior classes meet every Thursday

morning for a one-hour meditation. What amazed me was how much I liked not thinking of anything‌ just let everything go and allow time to just be. A lot of people have trouble facing themselves but the world would be a less stressful place if they did.â€? Jones has also changed her diet from what she has learned at The Sage School’s garden and greenhouse. “Holistic healthcare revolves around your diet. We can grow food to be sustainable and healthy. We’re not supposed to eat processed food but instead what comes from the ground. It’s healthy and it makes you feel good.â€? In the meantime, Jones is extremely happy attending The Sage School, which she just started this year after attending Wood River High School. “I wouldn’t be in school today if not for The Sage School. Public school just didn’t work for me. I’m a hands-on visual learner and I like to experience things and that’s what The Sage School gives me. I brought the idea up to my mom that I wanted a change and she told me I would have to make it happen, so I did. It’s been a pretty big culture shock going from a school of 800 to just having two other kids in my graduating class. Here we really form a community and you know everyone. There’s just a lot of one-on -ne and there’s no way you’re going to fall off the screen. I think all schools should be like this one.â€? tws Each week, Jonathan Kane will be profiling a local high-school student.

rma Reigle has worked in housekeeping for Sun Valley since her American husband brought her from Mexico City to the Wood River Valley 15 years ago. But Reigle would like to pursue a career at the airport where she says she could put her bilingual skills to work with people of difficult cultures. To that end, she recently participated in The Advocatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new Skills for Success course where she learned how to explore careers that interested her, gathered tips for job search and success, learned how to write a rĂŠsumĂŠ, practiced job interviews and salary negotiations, and went on a shopping spree for a free interview outfit at The Advocates Attic thrift store. On Friday she and eight classmates went through a graduation ceremony at Light on the Mountains Spiritual Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Before, my ambition was short. Now I can see farther into the future,â&#x20AC;? said Reigle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The things I learned made me more secure, more confident. I see more how I can apply for a new job.â&#x20AC;? This is the second graduating class the program has had, said Susan Fierman, who oversees the program. The women attended 20 classes over 12 weeks. Those who were not already working participated in unpaid nine-day internships doing office work, cashier work, meal preparation and other jobs offered by such companies as Farmers Insurance, Wood River Insurance, The Attic, The Senior Connection and Big Belly Deli. At the end of the program they are offered a letter of reference from their employers and Fierman, who follows up with them for a year after the program ends. The program was the brain-

Eat(CKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sfor Cash Cash that is)

child of Advocates Director Trish Swartling, who saw the need to help those in generational or situational poverty get help to gain more profitable employment, said Fierman. It includes conflict resolution, in which women are able to practice how to handle themselves in difficult situations; money management, which includes opening a savings account with matching funds; and talks on replacing old counterproductive behavioral patterns with new habits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We work with everyone from professional people who might have worked as nurses or in law offices to single moms who have never worked outside of the home before. The idea is to empower participants to create new possibilities for themselves in which they can operate successfully,â&#x20AC;? said Fierman. Grace Daniher congratulated her fellow classmates for working through various kinds of isolation ranging from coming to a new country to struggling with a new language. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned what a powerful resource we can be for one another. It shows weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone in our struggles. I discovered sisterhood and resources in the community I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know existed,â&#x20AC;? Daniher said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been an amazing program. The Advocates throw everything they have into this program,â&#x20AC;? added Leslie Moore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I come from a place of isolationâ&#x20AC;Ś out in desert for 10 yearsâ&#x20AC;Ś. and goats donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care what you look like. But you have to think about that sort of thing when you show up in town.â&#x20AC;? The Advocates are starting a sewing program that can give students skills, said Fierman. The Hunger Coalition and College of Southern Idaho are also partnering with the program. The next Skills to Success program starts in June. Call 788-4191, extension 22, for more tws information.

Outwitting the Dirty Dozen

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fruits and vegetables and with the most pesticide residues and, therefore, the most important to buy organicâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, imported nectarines and grapes, bell peppers, potatoes, blueberries, lettuce, and kale/collards. The growing season is upon us, so why not focus your gardening energy on the dirty dozen? Here are some suggestions, tailored to mountain growing conditions. Starting with the easiest, raise your own leafy greens. Spinach, lettuce, kale and collard greens are all in the pesticide top 12, and all are an absolute cinch for local gardens. Potatoes are also easily grown. Celery, another top offender, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grow without fancy finagling, so try other tactics. For crunch in salads, substitute the stems of so-easy-togrow broccoli, or grow some lovage for celery flavor. Bell peppers will grow here, but produce more readily in warmer microclimates (try south sides of houses or potted on hot sunny decks or driveways). Of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;badâ&#x20AC;? fruits, you can definitely grow apples. New Highbush blueberries and a new peach, Reliance, have shown good results (or grow apricots to substitute). Strawberries carry up to 13 pesticides, but you can grow your own. On the second-tier dirty dozen list are more garden candidates, including green beans, carrots, pears, and cherries. You may not be able to grow enough for all your needs but you can sure make a dent in that grocery list. tws Have a question, or want to write your own ERCbeat?

Observers on the oil rigs have seen strong headwinds blow the birds back a mile. Bravely, they return, and sometimes flap their wings but make little progress. One autumn day, a group of birds flew past the drill rig riding a tail wind only to run into a headwind. For four hours, they battled the elements, then decided to abort and head back to the rig where they slumped

onto the deck, exhausted but safe. These platforms save the lives of thousands of birds every year, birds that otherwise may never have completed their journey.

movie review

Hooking a Hit with ‘Salmon Fishing’ Jon rated this movie

BY JONATHAN KANE

L

asse Halstrom’s new romantic comedy Salmon Fishing in Yemen makes for a very enjoyable afternoon at the movies. Based on the British best-selling novel by Paul Torday, which took more of a bent toward political satire, the new movie takes a fond look at an impossible project – the bringing of 10,000 North Atlantic salmon to the Middle East on the whim of an incredibly wealthy sheikh.

Reminiscent of Werner Herzog’s classic Fitzcarraldo, which told of an insane obsession of a man to bring opera to the middle of the Amazon, Salmon Fishing has an equally insane vision. But the true heart of the movie is a moving love story between a married scientist, played by Ewan McGregor, and the sheikh’s front man for the operation, played by Emily Blount. Besides being incredibly attractive, both leads shine throughout and give us more romance than the novel it was based on. Why the sheikh wants to make his home a fly-fishing paradise is never made entirely clear, but to McGregor’s character, it is all an expensive pipe dream until he sees that the sheikh is willing to

put his money where his mouth is. Things are also complicated when the Prime Minister’s press secretary gets ahold of the story. Played beautifully by Kristin Scott Thomas, she feels it’s the perfect counterbalance to the bad news getting out of Afghanistan. So McGregor is reluctantly sent on his way to work with Blount. When she learns that her boyfriend has been found missing in action in Afghanistan, the doors open up for their potential romantic interlude. Sure there are complications, but the two leads couldn’t have been more interesting as their attraction is inevitable. Salmon Fishing has a lot of hooks to pull you in. tws

ake me out to the ballgameâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;? It is hard to believe that while playing Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite pastime last year, more than 400,000 Americans were hospitalized, seen in physiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offices or Emergency Rooms for baseballrelated injuries and almost 300,000 of these injuries were in players 18 years or younger. The most common injuries are muscle strains, ligament sprains, and cuts and bruises, and many are contact injuries, even though baseball is a noncontact sport. Injuries include player vs. player, player vs. bat, player vs. ball and, occasionally, player vs. wall. Shin splints, patellar tendinitis, Achilles injuries or an elbow â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tommy Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ligament are just a few common injuries. Fatigue has been reported to be a factor, possibly increasing injury by up to 36 times! Overuse and repetitive motion injuries are common, particularly in Little Leaguers and most commonly in pitchers. Proper education of coaches and parents is critical. Limiting pitch count is a simple solution for our young athletes. For example, children ages 8-10 should not throw more than 50 pitches per game or 75 pitches per week. By the time your son or daughter

is pitching high school ball, the maximum number of pitches per game is 90 with a maximum of two games per week. Players should learn â&#x20AC;&#x153;one pitch at a time.â&#x20AC;? Current recommendations are that fastballs should not be taught below the age of eight, changeups before the age of 10, curveballs prior to 14, and post-puberty for pitches like knuckleballs, sliders, forkballs, and screwballs. Baseball injuries have become such an epidemic that the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons has a program called STOP to help educate coaches, parents, and athletes. Simple tips like not playing on more than one team at a time, not playing one sport all year long, and requiring a number of rest days between games can prevent injuries. Prevention of injuries is relatively easy. It starts with field knowledge, knowing the rules, warming up and stretching before games, checking the equipment to be sure it fits properly and is worn correctly, using a batting helmet while at the plate and â&#x20AC;&#x153;on deck,â&#x20AC;? and always maintaining a â&#x20AC;&#x153;headsupâ&#x20AC;? attitude while on the field. Proper equipment is essential, such as properly weighted bats and breakaway bases, and using proper technique for sliding. Children under 10 shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be allowed to slide. Having a â&#x20AC;&#x153;dou-

ble bagâ&#x20AC;? can prevent foot and ankle injuries. Proper education about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;obstructionâ&#x20AC;? rule is important. Stretching shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be reserved for the seventh inning. In fact, I cannot emphasize enough how important the â&#x20AC;&#x153;warmup and cool-downâ&#x20AC;? period is in preventing overuse and fatigue injuries. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Little League, coed softball, competitive baseball or softball, it feels like summer!

Homeowners Move Toward 15-Year Mortgages

ifteen is the new 30, say local bankers when describing the type of mortgage most people request today. A lower-term mortgage may have seemed unattainable a decade ago due to the higher monthly payment. But the historically low rates are presenting an opportunity for homeowners to shorten the years of their terms, and pay off their mortgages faster. Many consumers are moving toward a shorter time period, opting for 15- or 20-year mortgages, rather than the typical 30-year term. To pay down their loan even quicker, and save even more, some are even setting up their payments to be taken out bi-weekly rather than once a month. Shorter-term mortgages generally have lower interest rates, and more of the payment is applied to the principal each month. While the monthly payment is higher than a longerterm loan, the interest saved can be astounding, such as in the example noted in the Federal Reserveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guide to Refinancing, which compares total interest costs for a 30-year fixed-rate loan of $200,000 at 6 percent versus a 5.5 percent 15-year fixed-rate loan. By cutting the time in half, more than $130,000 is saved over the life of the loan. In addition to contemplating the terms of their loans, current mortgage holders are also comparing their existing interest rate with the historically low rates available today to see if it is worth changing into a new mortgage that offers a lower

monthly payment. Still others are consolidating their mortgage and home equity loans, refinancing to lock into a lower fixed rate. Determining eligibility for refinancing is similar to the approval process for a first mortgage. Income and assets, credit score, other debts, the current value of the property, and the amount borrowed will all be considered. Those who owe less than $150,000 on their current mortgage and have good credit but are seeking a better cash flow are finding extra incentives to refinance into a lower-term mortgage. U.S. Bank now offers Smart Refinance, which features fixed interest rates, no points, fees, origination or closing costs. An easy application process also means there is less paperwork and a faster turnaround time. Fortunately, there are financial calculators, such as those found on www.usbank.com/mortgage that can help individuals answer questions such as how much house they can afford, how much they can borrow and what their new payment would look like. There is also an online calculator that can quickly calculate the savings between a 30and 15-year mortgage, as well as help estimate whether it is worthwhile to refinance. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even one tool that shows borrowers how much they could save over the life of the loan if extra money is applied either monthly or bi-weekly to their monthly mortgage principle. While these online tools provide dynamic graphs and fully customizable reports to help individuals make smart decisions about buying

or refinancing their home, help is also available from mortgage loan officers either at the branch, by phone, or online. Choosing a mortgage may be one of the most important financial decisions you will make. Borrowers should invest time in gathering all the pertinent information they might need to make the right decision. Ask questions about loan features when you talk to lenders, mortgage brokers, settlement or closing agents, your attorney, or other professionals involved in the transaction, and keep asking until you get clear, complete answers and fully understand your tws future commitment.

comprised of School of Music department heads. The audition process emphasizes preparedness, stage presence and quality of performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether students are selected to perform or not, the audition process is critical to a studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music education,â&#x20AC;? said Kim Gasenica, education director for the Sun Valley Summer Symphony. The recital will feature piano, string and vocal soloists, as well

Sweetwater

THEATER, from page 1 orchestra director Rebecca Martin, Company of Fools artist John Glenn, Sun Valley Center for the Arts co-director Kristin Poole, acoustical technicians Jay Cutler and Ted Macklin, Blaine County School District Trustees Paul Bates and Kathryn Graves and school finance manager Mike Chatterton. The new auditorium boasts 494 burgundy-colored seats, compared with 590 seats in the old facility. The new seating configuration allows more room between the back of one seat and the front of the next. Handles can be removed on six aisle seats to allow people to transfer out of wheelchairs. There also are six spots for wheelchairs. The floor is slanted, allowing those in the back a better view of the stage. The new theater also features a lobby entrance and ticket booth. Lecturers will be able to operate the projection screen from the lectern. And events can be projected into other rooms in the Community Campus in the event of overflow crowds. Behind the stage is a black box experimental theater for oneman performances and small chamber recitals. An adjacent classroom can accommodate 15 to 20 Summer Symphony School of Music students. Like Nordstrom, Neely can’t say enough about the new facility. “Before, the sound would get lost and we would strain to hear what kids were singing or saying,” she said. “And the old auditorium seemed so cavernous. The new theater has such a sense of intimacy it didn’t have before. Now, you feel you’re reaching every single person in the theatre, even though it seats 500.” The remodel was built for $1.54 million from a 10-year, $59.8 million plant facilities levy approved by Blaine County voters in 2009. Sawtooth Constuction and Ruscitto-Latham-Blanton Architects controlled costs so well that the project will likely come in $40,000 under budget, Chatterton said. It was originally slated to be finished in time for Christmas holiday performances. But its opening was set back by nearly five months because of delays in getting the seats. While school performances have priority, the new facility offers the opportunity to bring more outside performances to the Wood River Valley, said Teresa Gregory, the Community Campus building coordinator. “For me, this is a place of celebration,” she said. “This theater honors the excellence of our school system. And it celebrates who we are as a community.” tws

briefs Free Screening of ‘Flow’ this Tuesday

The ERC and Wood River High School’s W.A.T.E.R. Club will present a free screening of the film “Flow” from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Hailey Public Library. The award-winning documentary examines the political and environmental implications of water access and usage in the 21st century, investigating the growing privatization of the world’s dwindling fresh water supply with a focus on politics, pollution and human rights. It introduces many of the governmental and corporate culprits behind the “water grab,” while asking whether anyone can really own water. And it gives viewers a look at the people and institutions proposing solutions and technologies to the water crisis. A New York Times critic called it “an informed and heartfelt examination of the tug of war between the public health and private interest.”

Gertschen’s Education STORY & PHOTO BY BALI SZABO

I

t wasn’t long after her 1969 graduation from Long Beach State that Chris moved to the Wood River Valley. She did what so many of us have done when we come face to face with this land. She started to hike and hike. She gained a crucial insight that is at the crux of modern society’s perception and use of nature. “I began to see that we need to be taught about the land and its inhabitants before we can really care.” Gertschen earned her Secondary Teaching Certificate from the College of Idaho in 1976. She taught, and kept on learning, giving and absorbing. She got her Master’s in Natural History from Boise State in 1997. She didn’t stand still waiting for her advanced degree. She founded the Sawtooth Science Institute (SSI) in 1990; she worked with the Idaho Museum of Natural History, and joined the Idaho Environmental Education Association and became its president in 1994. She received her first IdEEA service award in 2000, and her second this March. In conjunction with Idaho State, SSI grew. One of its functions was to provide teachers in the natural sciences with opportunities for recertification, not an easy thing to do in Natural History. Sadly, in 2009, Chris and SSI parted ways, and that left a gaping hole that’s yet to be filled. Computer courses don’t lead field trips. A scientific understanding of the environment helps us see through the endless spins of the politicized divide. (For a great example of pseudo-science, check out Bill Mahre’s show on

HBO on 3/6). Environmental education faces the significant headwinds of generational and technological change. Social media and computer-generated entertainment has captivated the younger generation, though the trend of less and less involvement with nature has accelerated over the last 30 years. Kids between the ages of eight and 18 spend an average of seven and a half hours on digital media per day. National Park attendants’ average age has gone from 30plus to 50-plus since the 1960s. If we don’t ‘bond’ kids with nature early, we lose them. There are less and less natural settings and references in children’s stories. ‘Go outside and play’ has less and less 21st-century relevance. We can’t care about that which, or whom, we don’t know. Chris says, “We do all we can to protect ourselves from nature...”, and that “children should be taught from a very young age about the world around them. We should build on their need for a ‘sense of place.’ Technology in our lives has consumed us, and has created what is commonly called a ‘nature deficit disorder’. Another problem is our educational system and the sciences, both of which emphasize specialization. There’s little or no place for an interdisciplinary approach that deals with the interaction between the social and natural sciences—exactly what Natural History does. I believe that the loss of SSI is especially sad because Idaho teachers must continually upgrade their education… SSI capitalized on courses teachers can take into their classrooms. Lord knows they are not taught how to do that in tws Idaho’s colleges!”

The clubhouse gives us a warm and welcoming feeling and Karen and Sue are always there to greet you with a smile. The park and pool are my kids’ favorite!

FILMMAKING JOURNEY, from page 1 when he attended school for a year in Germany, sending clips home on Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s days. And, when he returned to the States, it was to pursue a degree at Montana State Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s School of Film and Photography. Following graduation Alex headed to Santiago, Chile, to teach English, telling his parents that he needed real-life experiences if he was going to be a filmmaker. It was there at a bar celebrating his birthday with friends that he met British photographer Jamie Fulbrook, who was just about to start filming the documentary on Olsen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Originally, I was into the idea that I wanted to move to L.A. and make it in Hollywood. But documentaries have become appealing to me as I see how I can use film as a tool for communication. I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become so interested in the world around me,â&#x20AC;? Alex said. Alex returned to the States in July to pursue an internship in Washington, D.C., working on a documentary about living with HIV in South Africa. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll rejoin Olsen for the last three months of the runnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey on May 11 as Olsen makes his way through Canada to Newfoundland. Alex doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know at this time whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll submit it to the Banff or other film festivals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just trying to get it done and see what it turns into,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ned Hamlin, Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proud of his son. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an accomplished filmmaker and this guy heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filming is a worthy cause, putting him-

self through terrible pain and effort to run around the world.â&#x20AC;? Cindy says she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see the finished product. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It fascinates me that Olsen has chosen to spend four years of his life running,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Want to be involved?

The documentary crew is trying to raise $15,000 for food and living expenses to complete the rest of the journey, camera gear, post-production work and distribution and marketing. Those who pledge $50 or more through the kickstarter.com project will receive a DVD of the film. Those pledging $500 or more will be credited as an associate producer. And those who pledge $1,000 or more will receive a pair of running shoes signed by Olsen. The filmmakers will accept the funds only if they raise it by May 13.

his is truly an easy-asa-breeze-to-fix dish and it will make your house smell divine. For houseguests or a brunch, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another overnight dish that will help you, the hostess, relax and be able to enjoy your company. The real Charlotte I believe was the one you probably knowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that of the elegant French dessert made with a mold of ladyfingers, Bavarian cream, etc. However, Charlotte is supposed to be just another way of saying in Old Chaucer (1300â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) English, â&#x20AC;&#x153;charlyt,â&#x20AC;? which means a dish of custard. I liberally take it to mean a dish that has a somewhat custardlike consistency which the bread herewith may sort of give to this dish. No matter what, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one that my guests at my past bed and breakfast always enjoyed and I think that you will, too. It also is versatile in that you can be imaginative and substitute some of the ingredients for others so as to result in different flavors.

Cheese Charlotte Serves 8

Ingredients:

â&#x20AC;˘ 8 slices of white sourdough bread â&#x20AC;˘ 1/2 cube butter, melted â&#x20AC;˘ 1/2 C. dry white wine or dry vermouth â&#x20AC;˘ 1/2 lb. grated cheddar cheese (or Jack cheese or a combo of both, if you prefer) â&#x20AC;˘ 2 C. milk â&#x20AC;˘ 4 eggs, slightly beaten â&#x20AC;˘ 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce â&#x20AC;˘ 1/2 tsp. horseradish mustard

â&#x20AC;˘ A sprinkle of Fine Herb seasonings â&#x20AC;˘ Bacon bits, ham bits, chopped sautĂŠed veggies, mushroomsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; whatever you wish

Instructions:

1. Using non-stick spray, lightly coat a 10-inch or a bit smaller round Pyrex dish or some pretty baking dish that you have about that size. 2. Brush melted butter on the bread slices and cut into small cubes. 3. Put half of the bread cubes in the dish. 4. Put half of the cheese on the first layer of bread cubes and sprinkle with half of the wine. 5. Put the other half of the break cubes on top the bottom layer and finish with the second half of the cheese and wine. 6. Mix rest of the ingredients and pour over all. 7. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour at least, or 24 hours at most. 8. Bake uncovered at 325 degrees for about 45 minutes or until puffy and brown. (I usually let the dish warm up a bit after the refrigeration and before putting in the oven.) tws

Are you a frustrated, overworked or timid cook? Call Margot for help at 721-3551 and please feel free to e-mail her @ margot6@mindspring.com for comments or ideas. Margot is a self-taught, enthusiastic and passionate cook. Having been an innkeeper for five years at her own inn, she accumulated a lot of good recipes, which she loves to share.

Beginning April 30, The Hunger Coalition offers a new Food Bank Distribution focused on privacy. For local families and individuals struggling to make ends meet, but afraid to come forward for help, this is a welcome and necessary solution. According to a 2009 Feeding America study, over 3,000 Blaine County residents are considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;food insecure,â&#x20AC;? which means they do not always know where they will find their next meal. These are neighbors and acquaintances; they are children in our schools. Some miss a single meal every now and then while others go without food for several days. In order to address the fear and stigma facing many local individuals and families in asking for help, The Hunger Coalition introduces the Warehouse Food Bank Distribution. It is more private. There is greater anonymity. Community members can feel more secure in reaching out for the help they so desperately need. Beginning Monday, April 30, the new Warehouse Food Bank will replace the Bellevue Mobile Food Bank at the Bellevue Community Church. Regular weekly Mobile Food Bank distributions will continue in both Hailey and Ketchum as scheduled. Tuesday distributions take place at the Community Campus in Hailey from 4:005:00 p.m. The Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood in Ketchum hosts the Thursday distribution from 3:30-4:30 p.m. The Monday Food Bank distribution will take place at The Hunger Coalition Warehouse, 121 Honeysuckle Street between Hwy. 75 and Gannett Road in Bellevue, from 2-4 p.m. To learn more about how The Hunger Coalition provides food assistance and support to local families, please visit www.thehungercoaliton.org or call (208) 788-0121.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I've always been a macho kind of guy. Since I was 18, I've driven nothing but a Harley and a pickup truck. My friends figured that when I got married I would give up the motorcycle and truck, but I held out. Even after our first baby girl, I sold the Harley, but kept the old pickup. However, now my wife and I learned that we're expecting twin girls. She is trying to convince me that I should sell my truck and buy a minivan that can fit all the kids. How is a macho guy like me going to drive a minivan? My friends, who once looked up to me, will soon be pointing and laughing. Any ideas on how to salvage a macho image?

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Carry: Considering you now

have twin girls on the way, a macho image is probably the least of your concerns. You'll be so busy chasing three girls that you'll forget you own a car. Cash: Besides, it probably doesn't matter which car you drive. When you get out holding diaper bags with a drool rag draped over your shoulder, no truck can restore your macho

Fast Facts Keep on Trucking

If you like the idea of driving a truck, you're not alone. Over the last fifteen years, light duty trucks have averaged almost 50% of all new car sales. While the minivan only accounts for about 10% of the market, don't rule it out just yet. Its versatility has automobile manufacturers releasing new designs every year. For growing families it proves to be a valuable resource.

image.

Carry: As parents ourselves, we like to say that it takes a real man to sing Barney tunes in public while changing a dirty diaper. Cash: In all honesty, your wife is correct. You will need to make a change to accommodate three little girls. You can't fit three car seats in a small pickup truck. Carry: There may be some larger truck styles that can fit the needs of your family while still offering you a macho image. Some of the king cab designs are intended to be passenger vehicles. Cash: However before you rule out the minivan, take a look at a

few. Considering that your family continues to grow, you may just appreciate the amenities they have to offer. Aside from the added interior space, they do offer more seating and typically better gas mileage. Some even come with an onboard DVD player, a handy item to keep your girls busy on long trips. Carry: If your budget allows it, you could always buy the minivan and keep your truck for other uses like driving to work or showing off for the guys. Consider it your retreat away from home. For a macho guy with a house full of women, you may need it.

Peace

Most of us would think that the first minivan was developed in the late 1970's or early 1980's. Although that's when the recent versions began their popularity, Volkswagen created the original minivan in the 1950's. Their Type 2 Minibus, more commonly known as the "VW Bus" was a unique design with a rear engine and rear wheel drive. The minibus became a fad in the 1960's, being painted with all sorts of colors and designs. Many can still be found today. â&#x20AC;˘

Reader Humor Father of the Year

My husband rarely knows what activities our two 6-yearold girls are participating in, but that doesn't stop him from trying to be a great father. Last week I became ill and asked my husband to wake up the girls and take them to one of their many weekend activities. Without hesitation, he got them dressed and into the minivan. When he came home about an hour later, I asked how it went. "Great," he replied confidently. "I had no trouble at all and dropped them off at dance class." "That's a problem," I replied to his dismay. "Because today was their karate lesson." (Thanks to Grace K.)
