Magic Trolling Derby Turns 18? BY PAUL HOPFENBECK


ne winter afternoon in the early ‘90s, over a cold beer at the Hailey Hotel, Ed Uhrig and Steve Begley decided to put on the first Magic Reservoir Trolling Derby (Ed put on the derby for 10 years and then decided to have the winner put on the next year’s derby, at which point the Uhrig boys won Save the date three years The Magic Reservoir in a row!). Ed Trolling Derby will take can’t rememplace Saturday, May ber what year 12. that was exCaptains sign-up is Wednesday, May 9 actly, nor can Steve Begley.

($20 goes to local There may be cause). a reason for that… we all owned places at Baja Magic and from Wednesday night after sign-in until the Sunday morning after the derby, East Side Magic was Party Central. This year’s derby poster says “18th Annual,” so someone must be keeping track! Typically held on the second Saturday of May, and originally scheduled to not conflict with Ed’s Kentucky Derby party at the Silver Dollar the week prior, the fishing can be unpredictable. Welcome to Magic. May at Magic is one of the most frustrating times of the year to fish this temperamental body of water. A few weeks back, Bill Tormey and I had our best BIG fish day in 28 years. Two days later, with seasoned veteran Jason Roth, fishing the same spot, we landed one good fish. Musta been holding our mouths wrong! In the weeks leading up to the derby, the reservoir is in flux and conditions can change daily. From ice- out in March until the day of the derby, there is a long list of variables that can predicate tactics. Water level, flows of the Big Wood and Camas Creek, water temperature and clarity, wind, time of day, thermocline level, barometer, and presence of Idaho Fish and Game “planter” stock will all have an impact on where you will find fish. This can demand constantly changing locations, presentation depth, trolling speed, choice of lure type, lure color, and whether or not bait is going to work. I like to pre-fish but because of the changing water conditions, with few exceptions, it doesn’t really give you an advantage. With five first-place finishes between them, the two most successful teams are the Uhrig brothers—Ed, Curtis and Ken—and Team Begley—Steve, Bernie and PeeWee. They will all tell you the same thing: There is no one secret that will put fish in the boat. You just have to show up. Or, if you

t started with a prom dress and grew into a double degree in mechanical engineering and applied mathematics with a minor in physics. And when Jozey Mitcham graduates from Boise State University on Saturday, she’ll have 64 “guardian angels” from the Wood River Valley who contributed more than $50,000 to her education cheering her on, along with her aunt and uncle, grandmother and father. And back at home another aspiring young college student is ready to take her place. “It still amazes me that people wanted to give me money, especially since I had never met most of them,” said the 24-year-old woman who was raised by her uncle and aunt, Mark and Rustin Miller, after her mother was killed in a car accident. “But I’m really grateful—I could not have taken the heavy class load I did if I’d had to work.” The story began when Hailey dress shop owner Paula Proctor adopted Wood River High School senior Jozey Mitcham as one of her “Paula’s Girls.” Proctor outfitted her with a prom gown and 57 other women offered to style Mitcham’s hair, give her a facial, and provide flowers, high heels, jewelry, dinner for two and money for college textbooks. When Mitcham sent prom pictures and thank-you notes to her contributors, Ketchum resident Carol Harlig was so impressed that she rallied the women to contribute scholarship money to supplement the scholarships Mitcham had received from Rotary clubs, the Sawtooth Board of Realtors, Wood River Odd Fellows and Rebekah Lodge, and other organizations. The first year the women contributed $5,500. This past year they contributed $10,400. The women never stopped giving, and Mitcham never stopped reciprocating with thank-you e-mails that summarized her classes and grades. She told them of spending a week holed up in her apartment, learning about proofs in Discrete and Foundational Math. She shared how classmates from her Probability and Statistics class taught her to wakeboard. She told of attending a George Strait concert, riding a scooter to class every day, watching her uncle race 222 miles per hour at the Bonneville Salt Flats and volunteering at the Idaho Humane

Society (“When I grow up I’m having dogs for kids.”) She shared how she was able to take classes in archaeology, scuba diving, snowboarding, judo, music, American sign language, self-defense and even comic books amidst computer science, thermal physics, numerical analysis, thermodynamics, biomechanics, biomaterials and fluid mechanics classes. She described building the Greenspeed—the world’s fastest vehicle run on vegetable oil—and the process of moving a new couch into her apartment (“I will have a whole year to plan how to get the couch back out and down three flights of stairs.”) She told of redesigning a hospital crash cart for one project, an intervertebral disc replacement for another and doing a 40-page report complete with code and diagrams for a wind turbine project. She told of the three cats and puppy she adopted from the Humane Society and described a trip to Fresno (“The crazy thing about California is they don’t have fry sauce and they don’t know what it is”). She asked them to cross their fingers as she attempted to cook steak for the first time and she even asked for “easy recipes” to supplement her pizza and Spaghettios diet. “Even with her heavy study load, she

has never failed to include us in her great adventure with wonderful reports of her classes and pithy descriptions of her professors and fellow students,” said Susan Perin. “We were all in awe because we had no idea what she was talking about with some of the classes she was taking,” said Harlig. Mitcham says she would like to parlay her engineering know-how into designing physical therapy carts for animals or improving hip implants and elbow replacements for dogs. To that end she will have a third month-long internship at the Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah, this summer, followed by an internship with a Boise veterinarian who does joint replacements. “As an only child, my siblings were the pets I had growing up,” she said. “I looked into veterinary medicine, but it requires a lot of chemistry. And I don’t want to operate on animals because you see the bad side. If I work with the therapeutic side, I’ll see the happier side.” Mitcham said she was amazed that her “guardian angels,” as she dubbed them, followed her through six years of college. “Some said they would even follow me through grad school of I chose to do that,

athleen Cameron has spent the past seven months sifting through a treasure trove of photos. The 2,000-plus photos, taken by Union Pacific photographers in the 1940s and ‘50s, reveal the early years of Sun Valley. Subjects range from Sun Valley’s early dress shops to cowboys on horseback looking down at the Sun Valley Lodge when little more than a flat expanse surrounded it. The transparencies were among 10,000 photographs that were slated to be destroyed when former head librarian Dottie Thomas learned of them in 1982 while visiting the Union Pacific museum in Omaha, Neb., where she was attending her high school reunion. Thomas knew of their value, said regional history librarian Sandra Hofferber. Not only did her husband work for Union Pacific but Thomas had an affinity for seeing history preserved. In fact, The Community Library’s Regional History Department started under her watch with the help of sheep rancher Miriam Breckenridge who conducted two dozen oral history interviews, collected a couple hundred photographs and gathered an assortment of livestock documents. Once she had the photographs safely in Ketchum, librarians

began archiving the black and white ones. But they could do little more than store between 2,500 and 3,000 color transparencies in Mylar envelopes, plastic sleeves and acid-free boxes in the freezer to stabilize their condition. Happily, the department was able to pair new technology with grants from the Wattis-Dumke Foundation and Idaho State Historical Society to restore them, Hofferber said. The refurbished photos will be unveiled to the public from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday during a reception at The Community Library, 415 Spruce Ave. N., in Ketchum. Viewers will be able to see four to six large printed photographs and view a revolving slide show of others on a big screen TV. Wine and hors d’oeuvres will be served. The photos are not candid photos. They’re posed photographs taken with the bulky cameras of the day to be used by Union Pacific Railroad to market the resort that it developed as America’s first destination ski resort in 1936. But they offer a window into yesteryear as they show the fashions of the day, the old leather, checkered curtains and beer mugs at the historic Roundhouse, original lifts that have long since been replaced by high-speed quads, and mammoth snow years where the snow

stacked up to the rooftops. “They’re strikingly beautiful images. Some are so beautiful the depth of field makes them look as if you could step right into the picture,” said Cameron. “A lot were taken around the lodge—they show the interiors, the food, the hot pool. They show the layout of the land before Sun Valley was built up.” Cameron, a professional photographer and multimedia

specialist from Bellevue, found that the Kodachrome color transparencies had turned pink when she went to restore them. Others looked as if someone had sneezed on them. Treating them with kid gloves, Cameron put them in a film frame holder. She then scanned the images, corrected color migration and fine-tuned the color with color correction tools. She also repaired scratches,

touched up water spots and made further refinements as necessary. “These transparences will continue to deteriorate, but we have these restored photos now,” she said. The photos will be cataloged and uploaded to the Regional History Department’s online catalog where viewers can see them and purchase them. tws

ood River High School biology teacher and birder Larry Barnes will lead a bird walk for the Idaho Conservation League on Mother’s Day. The ICL’s Ketchum office has organized a free birding tour from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. The tour is the first of the hikes the ICL will offer throughout the summer. The remainder of the schedule has not been finalized. Those interested in the bird walk should meet at the Wood River Land Trust, 119 E. Bullion St. in Hailey, and carpool to the Camas Prairie. Participants are encouraged to bring water, lunch, binoculars, spotting scopes and bird books, if they have them.

The Camas Prairie is among the top places in Idaho to watch birds because of its Centennial Marsh, a vast meadow covered with shallow water during spring and early summer. The shallow water stays warm, attracting a lot of aquatic insects that, in turn, attract thousands of shorebirds, wading birds, waterfowl and raptors. They include Swainsons hawks, which migrate all the way from Argentina, and loggerhead shrikes, which impale grasshoppers on sticks and barbed wire in order to eat them. The rarest, perhaps, are the black-bellied plovers, which have a mournful, drawn-out, threenote whistle. For more information, call Brett Stevenson at 726-7485. tws

The 150 fairies on stage take the audience through water, earth, fire and air, with each realm represented by various elements of dance, including tap, jazz, modern and hip-hop.

44’s Play the Brewery BY KAREN BOSSICK


heir new album is “Boogie Disease.” Their label, the “Rip Cat.” And The 44’s—the band behind it all—will play the Sun Valley Brewery in Hailey at 8:30 p.m. Monday. There is no cover. The 44’s are said to be the brightest rising stars on Southern California’s blues scene. “American Blues News” concurs, calling them 2011’s Best Blues Band of the Year. And their album was 2011’s Best Debut Album, according to Blues Un-

derground Network. The four musicians—guitarist Johnny Main, harmonica player Tex Nakamura, bass player Mike Turturro and drummer J.R. Lozano—easily create blues on the spot. At the same time, they display a loyalty to the L.A. blues and rhythm-and-blues tradition that goes back to storied greats like Johnny Otis and T-Bone Walker. “The 44’s are at the top of their game… (Their music’s) a disease we all enjoy catching,” said Jim Santella in “Southland Blues Magazine.”

age School students are getting the tools they need to make films, while those battling depression are getting a Wellness Recovery Action Plan, thanks to the women in the little black dresses. The Little Black Dress Club of the Wood River Valley handed out grants to five organizations last Tuesday evening at the Sawtooth Brewery in Ketchum. Those accepting grants: The Hunger Coalition, which received $3,000 to substitute a food pantry for the Mobile Food Bank it had been using in Bellevue. Hunger Coalition Executive Director Jeanne Liston told the women gathered at the brewery that her organization desired to provide more anonymity for those receiving aid because they had been concerned some might not seek help from the more public Mobile Food Bank “We know the desperation in the community continues to grow,” she said. Sun Valley Adaptive Sports, which received $2,000 for its eight-week PACK Summer Camp Program that provides outdoor recreational opportunities for 60 adults, teens and youth campers with disabilities. “The program helps develop social skills and physical skills that can translate to home and school,” said Erin Rheinschild, who heads up SVAS. “This year we’ve incorporated a leadership program in which even 5-yearolds can be a leader for a day.” NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) Wood River Chapter, which received $2,500 for its new Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP),

a self-management recovery program for those seeking to work through mental health issues. Gail Wray said professionals dealing with mental health in Boise and Salt Lake had encouraged the Wood River chapter to introduce the program to the Wood River Valley. The program will help people formulate an action plan, which will help if they are “in danger of falling into a black hole,” she said. The Sage School, which received $950 for a multimedia kit that includes a green screen, digital cameras and digital video camera. School Director Harry Weekes said his school will have a media retreat to explore ways of using the equipment. Possible uses include creating a yearbook and producing pamphlets and brochures for non-profit groups like the Environmental Resource Center, Hospice and The Hunger Coalition. “We have a captive audience of sixth-through 12th graders who are all the time on Facebook and other social media. This allows the students to use those skills to create projects to help other groups get their message across,” Weekes said. “There’s so much good work being done and we want to connect our kids to that. A media lab is a way to get kids involved in the community.” Company of Fools, which received $1,500 to subsidize its Pay What You Feel, $10 Educator Nights, student matinees and Ten for $10 tickets. The discounted tickets are designed to make it possible for anyone in the community to afford to see professional theater. “(The grant) is a wonderful affirmation of our program, which

is in its 17th year,” acknowledged Company Core Artist Denise Simone. Deer Creek resident Lynn Campion-Waddell founded the Little Black Dress Club in 2009 as a way to make philanthropy available to younger women who might not be able to donate $1,000 a year to the Wood River Charitable Women’s Foundation. President Rain McDonald said the organization is comprised of 66 young women who each give $300 a year in monthly installments of $25. The organization holds two cocktail parties a year to dispense grants. Members also have a variety of social events throughout the year, said social committee chair Renee Faltings. Information: tws

The Truth About Litter


hockingly, 48 percent of all Americans admit to littering, and litterbugs are found in all economic strata, age groups, races, genders, and geographic regions. Researchers say people litter most often in groups, and usually within sight of a garbage can. Of course, not all trash is intentional; sometimes paper escapes us on a windy day, or dogs get into garbage. Regardless of the source, the one who will pay the tab is you! Litter may not be the most pressing social problem we have, but a case can be made that litter is quietly racking up quite a damage toll. Litter can cause vehicle accidents, injure or kill wildlife and farm animals, damage plants in natural areas, and decrease water quality. Houses in littered neighborhoods don’t command top prices, and trashy communities don’t impress tourists or prospective real estate or business investors. What can we do about litter? Educate your children, set a good example, and show your pride in our beautiful valley by joining a community clean-up effort. Luckily, you can join your friends and neighbors to responsibly resolve winter’s accumulation of litter with a valley-wide Clean Sweep on May 12. Have a question or want to write your own ERCbeat?

The Rush of the Thrush M “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science.� —Albert Einstein BY BALI SZABO


rnithologists will tell you that we know very little about birds, but we’re working on it. Studying animal behavior in general is a decadeslong, dedicated and tedious process. Real progress requires technological advances. In the case of birds, Doppler radar, semiconductor miniaturization, microneurosurgery, satellite observation and various measuring devices that can shed light on their guidance systems have all advanced our knowledge. Field work is still the best way to study bird behavior. Sometimes the revelations are so remarkable or socially unpopular that they are rejected by publishers and the scientific establishment. By the mid-’60s, transistor technology allowed researchers to glue transmitters and antennas to larger birds like geese, hawks and cranes. Migrating songbirds were too small for the half ounce of equipment; it had to be reduced to a tenth of that—about the weight of a dime. Richard Graber picked a gray-cheeked thrush because that family of birds (robins, bluebirds, veeros) are some of the largest of the songbirds and they’re long-distance travelers, heading from Mexico to North Canada. Bill Cochran, an electronics engineer, came up with a lightweight device, and the two tracked the thrush by plane as it took off from Urbana, Ill., and headed north across Lake Michigan and Lake Superior, a 400-mile nonstop flight for eight

hours. The plane, flying a mile behind the bird, couldn’t keep pace and was turned back by a violent thunderstorm. Graber was overcome by guilt that he had placed a three-gram device on a bird and possibly endangered it. He never tracked a songbird again. Bill Cochran kept at it, benefitting from the evolution of the microchip to lighter weight and superior data processing abilities. After 150,000 road miles and 40 years, he had reams of data from chasing the thrushes (Hermits, Swainsons, etc.) at night. In 1973, he tracked a Swainsons over seven nights and 940 miles, a record to this day. He had reams of data, but couldn’t buy a paragraph in a scientific journal. Chasing birds at night was too unconventional. In 1999, on the eve of his retirement into obscurity, a young biologist affiliated with the University of Illinois (Wikelski) decided to revisit his tracking data, convinced Cochran to un-retire, and finally the results from all his work came to light, and he got published in Nature and Science. Some results: the thrushes stayed on course no matter what, using their magnetic compass. They landed as soon as their energy resources ran out. During the day, they rested, preened and ate and didn’t go far. As soon as they regained their pre-flight 1plus-ounce flight weight, they resumed their journey right after sunset. Night air temperature had to be 69 degrees and winds less than six mph. They don’t fly

aria Corbit, who was involved in the rescue of a man who became lost on Trail Creek Summit last month, said she did indeed find wolf tracks when she retraced the man’s footprints. But she said she didn’t tell him that wolves were stalking him, as he later said. “I have no evidence they were stalking him. And I would never say that, given all the anti-wolf tws hysteria,� she said.

into a cold front. Instead, they wait it out, for a week if need be. They expended less energy during flight than while resting and refueling. Feeding a large brood required more energy than migratory flight. The trip from Panama to Canada takes about 42 days, averaging 158 miles and four to six hours of flight daily, expending .3 calories per mile.. During flight, their heart beats 840 times per minute and their wings beat 780 times, over 3 million wing beats in all. In the brave new world of mobile interconnectivity, the microprocessors on birds have become black boxes that can share and save data from other birds and migratory species like whales. Amazing. We’re not the only tweeters. tws

The Community Library is paying homage to National Bike Month with a free showing of the ‘bikeumentary’ “Personal Velocity� at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The film, made by a New School University student, takes viewers into the minds of two young urban riders as they weave their bikes through the frantic streets of New York City. The film lets you “experience chasing the perfect high and facing the ultimate low and what it means to keep pedaling,� according to its publicity. Free Fat Tire will be served.

Chicken Coop Class

As a part of the Hailey Community Climate Challenge, the Building Material Thrift Store will provide an interactive workshop on raising backyard chickens. The workshop is from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 19 at the BMTS. Bob Closser will lead a tour of the key aspects of a successful coop design, share design blueprints, and lead construction demos using reclaimed materials. The workshop will also provide tips on raising happy and healthy organic chickens, and the City of Hailey will review the city codes governing the practice of backyard birds. The workshop is free, but space is limited. Call the Environmental Resource Center to register/info 208726-4333.

movie review

Jeff, Who Lives at Home provides Signs from the Universe BY JONATHAN KANE


ollywood, since the ascent of the Coen brothers, seems overrun with brother directing teams. With Jeff, Who Lives at Home we have the latest effort from the Duplass brothers – Jay and Mark. In all, it is a sweet effort that entertains in its own rambling way, but it never aspires to greatness, which may or may not be a fatal fault. What it does is follow a family of three through a day packed with surprises and

ERC’s Clean Sweep is this Saturday

This is a real “feel good� event where friends, neighbors and families spend a morning giving the streets and alleys of our valley towns a little spit and polish treatment. ERC provides meeting places (Ketchum and Sun Valley volunteers meet at Atkinson Park; Hailey meets at Hop Porter Park; Bellevue meets at Memorial Park), maps, gloves and bags, and a little breakfast. Meet at 9 a.m. to choose areas that need some cleanup, work until noon and then reconvene for lunch provided by local restaurants. Team and individual prizes for Weirdest Thing Found, Team with Biggest Age Span, and Best Team Spirit. As you’ll see by the picture, the bar has been set by last year’s Team Spirit winners. Form a team and challenge your friends! There is no charge to participate.

an impossible-to-believe ending. It’s a small piece but for the most part enjoyable as it features the extremely watchable Jason Segel in the lead. Segel plays a pot-smoking 30-year-old who lives in his widowed mother’s basement and who seems to be obsessed with the Mel Gibson film, Signs, hoping that his destiny will be revealed to him and he can finally begin his life. When his mother, Susan Sarandon, begs him to get off the couch and go to The Home Depot for her, a series

of events transpire, including him bumping into his estranged brother, played by Ed Helms. Helms fancies himself a go-getter but is actually trapped in a marriage that is slowly going down the drain. Fearful that his wife is having an affair, Helms and Segel do a clumsy job of following her. In a weak subplot, Sarandon is being wooed by a mystery co-worker who turns out to be a woman. The whole day comes together on a bridge where there has been an accident and it seems Segel’s destiny

briefs A Call for Artists has been issued for the Cover Art, the Ketchum Arts Commission Utility Box Art Project

The Ketchum Arts Commission (KAC) has secured funding from the Idaho Commission on the Arts (ICA) in support of its Utility Box Art Project, which has been renamed “Cover Art.� Their commitment of $1,000 will help offset the costs associated with the project, in particular the hiring of a public arts project advisor. Cover Art will feature vinyl images of original art wrapped around utility boxes found throughout the city of Ketchum. The KAC is also in the process of raising funds from private donors to supplement its own budget. The KAC recently issued a call for artists from Idaho, Wyoming and Montana who may be interested in applying for the project. Four artists

will be chosen to design art for the boxes, which are located at four different sites in the city. The artwork will be in place for approximately 3-5 years, and perhaps longer. Artists will receive a stipend of $1000-$3000, depending on the site. The KAC, now in its third year, was created by the city of Ketchum with the objective of integrating arts and culture into the community’s life. Two major projects to date have been the annual “Art on Fourth� exhibition and the development of Kagan Park. The KAC is a division of the Ketchum Parks & Recreation Department and receives funding from the city as well as private donors who wish to support individual projects.

finally comes into view. All three leads are very talented actors and I suppose it’s a bit of a coup that the directors landed them. Segel stands out as the man-child and gracefully accepts that he is invariably the butt of every joke. If there is a more likeable leading man in Hollywood, I don’t know who it is. As to the Duplass brothers, it is evident that they have a talent for examining the minutiae of small moments. But their love of the hand-held camera and the zoom from one focus to another

Before a capacity crowd of 165,000 mint julep-lubricated fans, the aptly named I’ll Have Another bested co-favorite Bodemeister. It was one of the best-balanced, full, 20-horse fields in many years. The rains held off, the dirt track was fast. That was good news for the speed horses, not so much for many others. This was the first time any of these three-year-olds had to run one and a quarter miles. At this distance, speed has to combine with endurance. Right out of the gate, the pace was blistering fast, set, as expected, by Trinniberg. In a surprise move, Bodemeister didn’t hang back (trainer Bob Baffert’s overconfidence?). He challenged and quickly surged into the lead and posted the five fastest split times in Derby history. The race ended up the fifth fastest ever. The other favorite, Union Rags (9-2), had an early misstep, got boxed in, and by the 3/8th pole his day was done, though he finished well, in sixth. Daddy Nose Best and the white horse Hansen began to fade just as I’ll Have Another began jockeying for position. Coming from eighth, he gained steadily on a tiring Bodemeister, overtook him in the last furlong and won the race, the first horse ever to win from the 19th (outside) post. The other death knell is the inside post No.1, where jockey Calvin Borel makes his living. The track was soft there and he never got anywhere. It was Cinco de Mayo, and Hispanic jockey Mario Gutierrez got his first Derby win. With the crowd sipping $10 mint juleps, no one was in the mood for temperance. Idaho-bred Rousing Sermon was never a factor. Everyone just had another. tws

financial planning



o your 1040 is filed and you are now anxiously waiting for your refund. What do you plan on doing with it? Go on that long-awaited cruise, get a new set of golf clubs or buy that widescreen TV you’ve had your eye on? There are so many ways you could spend your refund, but there are other alternatives to consider. According to the Internal Revenue Service, over 75 percent of American taxpayers received a federal tax refund, with the average around $2,500. It’s what you do with your refund now that may create a better financial future for you and your family. Instead of spending your refund this year, consider contributing to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), setting up a college savings fund for a child, or paying down credit card debt. These options will help improve your financial situation. First on your list of priorities might be paying down any highinterest credit card debts you have incurred. By paying only the minimum each month, you may be paying just the interest (or less) on the debt and little or nothing toward the principal. Paying down the debt can help free up additional money for other important financial needs. If debt is not a problem, your tax refund could provide you an excellent opportunity to contribute to an existing IRA or establish a new one. For the 2011 tax year, you can contribute up to $5,000 to an IRA. If you are 50 years or older by December 31, 2011, you can add an additional $1,000 to the account. Making a tax-deductible con-

tribution to a traditional IRA is an option if you are not participating in an employer-sponsored retirement plan or, if you are participating, your Adjusted Gross Income falls within eligibility guidelines. A Roth IRA may be a better choice, if you are eligible to contribute. Contributions to a Roth IRA are not tax deductible. However, qualified distributions are received free from federal income tax. Your refund could also be used to contribute to your child’s college savings. There are simple and affordable options you can take advantage of today, including tax-advantaged savings vehicles, to help you reach your college savings goal. One thing to remember after you’ve decided the fate of this year’s refund: the check you received is not a windfall but the return of an interest-free loan you provided the government. Regardless of the pleasure you may get from receiving a large check each tax year, adjusting the amount withheld by the government to reduce the amount of future refunds may be an appropriate course. You might not get a refund in April, but there may be more money in each paycheck to contribute to a savings account or IRA or pay down debt throughout the year. Take some time to consider your options before making the down payment on that big purchase. The earlier you start saving for your future, the more you may have during your retirement. If you have questions about these options and others, you owe it to yourself to contact a financial services professional that you know and trust. Your financial future may depend on it. tws

Ketchum to Extend Transportation Center Timetable for More Studies BY JO MURRAY


ayor Randy Hall: ‘We need more time to evaluate alternative sites and all public input.’ The city of Ketchum will extend the timetable for constructing a downtown transportation center and has requested that Mountain Rides Transportation Authority study alternative locations and incorporate suggestions from residents and business owners during four public meetings. The initial proposal was to create a central bus transfer point and other amenities on East Avenue between Sun Valley Road and East Second Street. Mountain Rides, which operates Ketchum’s bus system, estimates that a transportation center would increase ridership by 20 percent. This would reduce traffic congestion, lessen demand on parking and make the community core more pedestrianand retail customer-friendly. “We are pleased with the

amount of community participation. It is important to understand that no decisions will be made until all alternatives have been thoroughly reviewed,� said Mayor Randy Hall. “While most people agreed with the need for a transportation center, the public and council wanted more study and discussion on the location and time frame,� he added. Mountain Rides will collect additional data from other resort communities on where similar facilities are located relative to commercial areas and community experience with a transportation center. “The lesson so far is that building infrastructure like a transportation center is the best way to increase ridership,� said Jason Miller, executive director of Mountain Rides.  “People are more likely to take the bus in a snowstorm if a covered, heated waiting area is available.� Buses will be equipped with a GPS navigational system connecting to a digital reader board

at the transportation center, telling waiting passengers exactly when the next bus will arrive. Mountain Rides has a fleet of 18 buses, with 12 buses stopping downtown in peak hours. There are five routes, also serving the River Run, Elkhorn, Sun Valley, Dollar, Warm Springs and Hailey/Bellevue areas. The project would be partially funded with a $200,000 federal grant. The city of Ketchum and the Ketchum Urban Renewal Agency have been asked to provide $50,000 as the match for the grant. The Ketchum Planning and Zoning Commission will have to approve the design of the building; the Ketchum City Council, use of the street; and Mountain Rides, changes in bus routes and schedules. Additional information is at or www. To comment, contact Mountain Rides at 7887433 or info@mountainrides. org or the city at 726-3841 or

All you need extra to buy or make is a pretty gift bag and card and, of course, make sure that you have all of the necessary ingredients.

If she’s on a diet, the parenthesized ingredients are those that Weight Watchers recommend. They were my inspiration for this recipe. By the way, Mother’s Day celebrations can supposedly be traced back to very ancient festivals like, in Greece, the cult to Cybele; in Rome, the festival of Hilaria; or to the Christian Mothering Sunday celebration.

Running Pain- and Injury-Free BY JESSICA KISIEL


here are several theories on proper running mechanics to avoid injury, including barefoot, Chi, pose, evolutionary, natural and more. Following my joint surgeries, I studied them all, realizing that if I wanted to run again without pain I’d need to upgrade my stride. I had a lot to learn about how to run, which seems such an innate motion. My research uncovered several specific movement patterns critical to painfree and injury-free running. All of the running techniques promote a non-heel strike landing with the foot positioned directly under the body. Landing on the heel with the foot in front of your body is like putting on the breaks with every stride. You push off with the lower leg only to stop your forward momentum with a hard landing on your heel. This push-off, heel-strike running style also creates an upward instead of forward motion and increases the strain on the lower leg muscles; hence, a relaxed lower leg without pushing off is advised by some. The impact of heel striking is a matter of physics and Newton’s third law—for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Gravity and Ground Reaction Force (GRF) are both present when running. Gravity is defined as the downward pull of the earth at 9.81 m/s2. GRF is the force the earth exerts upward upon us. When running, you can hit the ground with a force of gravity up to three times your body weight. Consequently, the ground hits back with the same GRF force. GRF starts in the foot and travels up the body. If this powerful force encounters a weak area such as the knee, hip, or lower back, pain and injury can result. Studies have shown that landing on the midfoot rather than the heel reduces impact forces at the knee, thereby lowering injury rates. Gravity can be also be used to create forward propulsion, according to Dr. Nicholas Romanov, Ph.D. In his “gravity theory,” Dr. Romanov proposes that

gravity not only pulls you down, but also draws you forward. The forward lean and fall advocated in proper running technique utilizes this principle. Standing in an erect, upright posture, a runner pivots forward from the ankles to begin striding. Running is a continuous forward fall from one foot to the next. Forward lean is the gas pedal for running speed—more lean equals more speed. As you stand tall, lean forward and land on your midfoot/forefoot. The other components of good running— form, high cadence and short stride length—happen automatically. The next time you head out for your run, keep these technique focuses in mind. Foot strike - avoid landing on your heel Aligned posture - straight line from head to support foot, joints stacked and knees soft Forward lean and fall - lean from your ankles, allowing gravity to move you forward Relax - don’t push off the ground and release unnecessary muscle tension Short stride length and high cadence - 180 steps/minute tws

You can do all of the mixing in the saucepan. Mix milk, cocoa powder, sugar and butter or oil in a medium saucepan over low heat. Bring to a slow boil, then remove from heat. Add peanut butter and stir into mix until melted. Stir in oatmeal and mix well. (I use a wooden spoon to do all of this.) Drop 16 or more spoonfuls onto a baking sheet lined with wax or parchment paper. (I use my measuring tablespoon and a knife to do this. Then I actually pat them together with my hands.) Freeze for at least four hours; they are better the day after you make them. Then you can put them in a sealed baggie and keep in the fridge. Don’t snitch until Mom gets them.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE, from page 1 but I’m ready to get a life,” she said. “They’ve been a nice support group for me, very motivational. They’ve made sure that I follow my dreams.” The story doesn’t end with Mitcham’s graduation Saturday where she will wear a graduation dress picked out in Paula’s Dress Shop. Her angels have created a 5013c Carol Harlig Guardian Angel Scholarship through the Blaine County Education Foundation. There they will pick a student to support for four years, provided that student maintains good grades and follows Mitcham’s example by keeping in touch. The first is K.T. Martinez, who is headed to Dartmouth College. Martinez, a basketball standout who mentored Bellevue elementary students in her spare time, is interested in becoming a pediatrician. ”It’s going to be a wonderful four years of watching this young woman bloom and grow,” said Harlig. “Who would have thought that a simple thank-you

note would have resulted in so much!”


“What was impressive was not only that she distinguished herself with a double major, but the dedication and tenacity it must have taken to remain on the dean’s list. One semester she went from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with a lunch break and only 10minute breaks between classes. She wrote that she just had to bring lots of snacks with her to eat in between classes. Another time she wrote of 10 of her engineering classmates teaming up in the engineering building for 15 hours until 2 in the morning to work on one assignment.” —Connie Grabow “Not having children of my own, supporting Jozey’s education and personal growth has meant the world to me,” said Robyn Watson-Hay. “One can really see the power of giving when more than 100 women are brought together by our mutual

friend, Carol Harlig, to make a difference in one exceptional person’s life.” “It’s been an honor to be part of Carol’s organization and to support such a deserving young woman. I hope more women will join Carol’s Angels to help support many more deserving young women.”—Sue Acker “Jozey Mitcham has inspired me during the entire time that I have known her. Her determination, drive and intellect should be motivations for all of us. I look forward to hearing about her next chapter.” —Judith Smooke “I told Jozey: ‘I’ll be the woman sitting in the stands sobbing with boxes of Kleenex.’ It’s been such a joy to watch her grow from a shy young woman and bloom before our eyes as she found her wings.” —Carol Harlig “It will feel weird not telling the women all my stories. I might have to send them occasional updates. They’re like my family and I love them very much.” —Jozey Mitcham tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I put together a brilliant resume. I thought it was a piece of art. Then I sent it to all of my dream jobs. Wasn't I surprised when I got a call from one of them telling me they checked out the information on my resume and discovered the schools and companies I listed never heard of me. Of course they didn't. I lied. I never even graduated college, let alone hold a successful job. Since when do companies actually check a resume? I thought everyone lies on them. Do companies really check out education and previous employers? If so, I'm going to need a new plan before sending out more resumes.

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Carry: If you're smart enough to

write a brilliant resume and search out your dream jobs, then you're probably smart enough to get some real credentials. Cash: Flat out lying just isn't going to get you a good job in the long run. It's more likely to land you in an embarrassing situation. Carry: Even if your resume got you a call for an interview, how would you handle interview questions? What if they ask you about

Fast Facts Scouts Honor

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 05/06/12 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

your education or previous employers? You would need even more lies to cover your tracks. Cash: And if by some miracle you were hired, you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be out of the woods yet. If an employer found out the truth, you could be fired for being hired under false pretenses. That wouldn't be a good experience to list on your next resume either. Carry: The best alternative for your next resume is to be honest. Take the education and experience that you have and utilize it to accentuate your skills. Try listing your qualifications or skills that make you a good candidate for the job. Cash: The truth is that some companies check resume informa-

tion and some don't. Many employers don't take the time, don't know how, or just don't want to spend the money to do a background check. Carry: On the other hand, many companies do extensive background checks on their candidates. They hire outside services to investigate criminal and employment histories. Some even have questionnaires designed to evaluate your personality and determine if you are lying. Considering the availability of information today, this is becoming more and more common. Cash: So if you want a fair shot at a real job, try telling the truth next time. You may just land your dream job after all.

"Does this dress make me look fat?" There are some questions no one wants to answer honestly. And the truth is that a majority of people lie every day. A study performed at the University of Massachusetts found that 60% of people will tell one to three lies in a 10-minute conversation. More surprising is that both men and women tell lies at about the same rate. Men typically lie to make themselves look better and women tend to lie to make someone else feel better.

Under Oath

Do you think stretching the truth or lying on your resume won't hurt anyone? Guess again. It may hurt you. Over the years many have lost their jobs to lying on their resumes including a RadioShack CEO who resigned after it was publicly reported that he lied on his resume. And he's not alone. A congressional investigation found 463 federal employees that claimed to have credentials or degrees that were inaccurate or flat out phony. Today, some states have made the use of false educational degrees illegal with penalties up to $10,000 and 5 years in prison. â&#x20AC;˘



Reader Humor Telling Email

As a HR Director, I am often inundated with resumes whenever I advertise a job position. Many of them are sent to me by email. While this normally isn't a problem, I find some applicants fail to think about the email address they use to send it. Recently I received a resume from a gentleman who was very well prepared and seemed like a perfect fit for the job. His first name was Doug with a middle initial "S". In his email note, he stated that he was currently employed, but rather unhappy at his current job. I suspected that must be the truth when I saw his full name in his email address: DSGruntled@- - - (Thanks to Yvette R.)

510 thank you notes The Hailey Memorial Day Committee would like to thank Carol Brown, Billy Josey, and all involved in organizing the amazing Arborfest event on 5/5/12 for putting on an incredible event and for including us in that day! Your event is a great addition to the spring â&#x20AC;&#x153;on-goingsâ&#x20AC;? and everyone we spoke with had a wonderful time. Thank you for helping us to promote and raise money for the Hailey Memorial Day Ceremony. We had a great time working with you all and hope to work together again in the future!

... and the May 3rd show was similarly memorable (partly thanks to guest perfs by Coldplay and also by Carrie Underwood). This â&#x20AC;&#x153;A.Iâ&#x20AC;? season (11) has been absolutely stellar!
