Masonic Lodge offers E Energy Expo


very morning Munchie makes the rounds at Blaine Manor, making sure all the residents are accounted for. She then heads to David Alfs’ room, jumping on his lap. Right: Munchie, the cat, likes to alternate between David Alfs’ lap and bed.



he Hailey Masonic Lodge will host the 2011 Wood River Valley Solar and Green Building Expo from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The free expo will be held at the Masonic Lodge at 100 2nd Ave. S. in Hailey. The expo will bring together architects, energy providers, contractors, suppliers and manufacturers to provide talks and product displays relating to energy efficiency, solar heating and power. “Something similar to this was done 10 years ago but they haven’t had any expos like this since,” said Kevin Dugan, a local energy consultant. “We’ll have speakers from the cities of Hailey and Ketchum, as well as the county, explaining the new energy codes for buildings. And there’ll be someone talking about building energy-efficient buildings while maintaining healthy indoor air. There also will be displays from solar vendors, green builders, energy auditors, geothermal experts and Idaho Power, which will offer information about low-interest loans.” Friday’s speakers include Mariel Platt reviewing building codes, 3:15 p.m.; Rebecca Bundy, discussing Ketchum energy code status, 4 p.m.; Bill Dyer reviewing new Blaine County energy codes, 4:45 p.m.; and Jolyon discussing RESNET testing issues at 5:30 p.m. Saturday’s speakers include Tim Carter discussing green building, 11:30 a.m.; Sharon Patterson talking building energy and indoor air quality, 12:30 p.m.; Mario DeHaro of the University of Idaho discussing rain water and grey water, 1:30 p.m.; Jim Mason of Idaho Power discussing energy efficiency and net metering, 2:30 p.m.; and Jonathan Monschke discussing BIPV Solar, 3:30 p.m. Vendors include Sagebrush Solar, Ketchum Energy, Western States Geo, Weather Seal Insulation, Thermal Temp, Audio Innovations, Idaho USGBC, The Natural Finish, Site Base Energy, Idaho Mountain Builders, Pella, Sun Storage/Sunergy World, Idaho Power, Western Energy, Vital Spec and Roberts Electric. There will be a barbecue and beverages for sale, as well as a small farmer’s market on site, weather permitting. Proceeds will go toward the Lodge’s scholarship fund. AIA members and others may receive up to three credits for Friday’s and/or Saturday’s education sessions. Information: 208-320-8627. tws


Parrot above: Blossom got loose during the Castle Rock Fire after Caryn Crawford took him to her home in Warm Springs. Blossom was found weeks later in the Woodside neighborhood of Hailey.

“She’s an incredibly good cat—she likes to snuggle with me,” he said, stroking the dark cat between the ears. “She makes this a home, not an institution.” Indeed, Munchie is part of a triumvirate of fins, feathers and fur designed to soften the appearance of institutional life at Blaine Manor. “Nursing homes recently started understanding how important it is to residents’ health to have pets around. They just aren’t with it if they don’t have fins, feathers and furs,” said Caryn Crawford, director of admissions at the Hailey nursing home. That said, Blaine Manor’s menagerie didn’t start by design. Stephanie Jaskowski, the Manor’s financial officer, found the first Manor pet—a threelegged yellow Labrador—while competing in a fishing tournament at Salmon Falls Reservoir south of Twin

Falls in 2005. Spotting three emaciated dogs on a rock, she and her husband Michael began feeding them. “I was so impressed with the Lab because he was obviously starved and dehydrated. Yet he let the puppies eat before he ever took food for himself,” recalled Jaskowski. While the puppies were adopted right away, Lucky languished at the Twin Falls animal shelter because of a paw that had been disabled by stepping on cactus. Unable to forget his selflessness, Jaskowski retrieved him and brought him to the Manor. The residents warmed to the threelegged dog they named Lucky right away, fattening him with dog biscuits and buttered rolls. Even Manor Adminstrator Gail Gogla decided it wouldn’t be such a bad idea to have a dog around after a week. Lucky has served as a one-dog welcome wagon for new residents, helping even the most reluctant newcomers feel at home. “The hardest thing for people to give up is their pets. They will give up their car. They’ll give up their homes. But it’s so hard for them to give up their pets. We tell people: You can’t bring your dearly beloved, but we do have someone who will love you,” Crawford said. Last Christmas, as age made it increasingly difficult for Lucky to hobble around, he was outfitted with a custom-made wheelchair. “He could barely walk. Now he can run. His wheelchair gives the residents a lot of empathy for him. They realize they’re not the only ones with problems,” said Jaskowski. Munchie was found a year after Lucky, abandoned by the side of the road near Picabo. The four-week-old dehydrated kitten was so tiny she could fit in the palm of a hand. Munchie keeps tabs on the residents. In fact, she became so attached to one that she went into mourning, continually looking for the woman after the woman passed way. Jaskowski was able to secure permission for Munchie to attend the woman’s funeral so Munchie could see her friend one

Pianist, Alfredo Rodríguez.


Extra talent announced for Symphony Benefit By KAREN BOSSICK


wo extraordinary young talents—violinist Ryu Goto and pianist Alfredo Rodríguez—will join international recording artist and soprano phenomenon Jackie Evancho in performing for the Sun Valley Summer Symphony Benefit Concert on July 31. “We are thrilled to introduce these gifted young musicians to Sun Valley,” said Benefit Concert Committee Chair Maggie Sturdevant. “You will be able to say you heard them hear, first!” Goto made his concert debut at the age of seven, playing Paganini’s Violin Concerto No.1 at the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan. Since then, he has appeared as soloist with numerous international ensembles, including the National Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic.  Beginning in 1996, Fuji TV broadcasted a documentary series entitled “Ryu Goto’s Odyssey,” which aired annually for ten years. The Harvard University student’s violin is the 1722 Stradivarius, known as the ‘Jupiter’ on loan to him from Nippon Music Foundation. Ryu’s sister, internationally renowned violinist Midori, performed with the Sun Valley Summer Symphony in the 2004 season.  A young pianist of astonishing virtuosity and imagination, Cuban-born Rodríguez calls up images of legendary jazz pianists like Keith Jarrett, Thelonious Monk, Art Tatum, Bill Evans and his compatriot Chucho Valdés. Schooled in the rigorous classical conservatories of Havana, Rodríguez’s riveting artistry is informed as much by Bach and Stravinsky as by his Cuban and jazz roots.  Discovered at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2006 by Quincy Jones, Rodríguez’s star has risen rapidly under the tutelage of the famed producer. Alfredo’s first album – Sounds of Space – featuring original material and produced by Quincy Jones, was

yal Pedersen kept waiting for his father-in-law to invite him to join the Masons. The invite never came. The Masons, it turned out, don’t recruit members. They wait for them to approach. Despite their low-key approach, membership in the Masonic Lodge of Hailey is on the upswing at a time when many such organizations are closing their doors. After tapering off during the 1970s, the Hailey Lodge boasts more than 40 members, even as membership in Masons statewide has declined from 11,000 in 1982 to 4,388 members in 56 lodges. Members of Hailey’s Masonic Lodge, in fact, celebrated their 125th anniversary with Masons from Twin Falls, Bliss, Hagerman, Glenn’s Ferry and Challis last fall. And on Friday and Saturday they will host a free Solar and Green Building Expo for the community, with proceeds from a barbecue going to scholarships for youth. Kevin Dugan, one of the expo’s organizers, said he joined the Masons 15 years ago, in part to satisfy his curiosity. ”When the mining camps started up, almost invariably one of the first things that went up with the saloon was the lodge,” he said. “I had always been curious about the symbols and what they meant. I think it’s fascinating that Masonry is the world’s oldest fraternity and that it’s still surviving today. I’ve found the people involved in it to be interesting and I’ve also found interesting the fact that there have lodges around the world. It’s truly a global organization in that they even have lodges in Iran and Iraq—places you wouldn’t think that there would be lodges.” One of the lures of Masonry, according to Pedersen, is the fraternity’s allegiance to “making good men better” at a time when the ethics and morality of society seem to be in tatters. “The character of the people I’ve met in the Masonic brotherhood has not let me down,” said Pedersen, a roofer. Freemasonry, the granddaddy of fraternal organizations, had its beginnings in 1717 England. But some trace it back to the stonemasons who built medieval Europe’s cathedrals and castles and, perhaps even, to those who built Solomon’s temple in biblical times Its membership rolls include 13 signers of the American Constitution, 14 presidents including George Washington, and 17 of Idaho’s 30 governors, including Cecil Andrus and the state’s current governor Butch Otter. Other notables include Ludwig van Beethoven, Davy Crockett, Harry Houdini, Wolfgang A. Mozart, Will Rogers, John Wayne and Red Skelton. Because their meetings are closed to the public, Freemasons have attained an aura of mystery and been accused of everything from conceiving the United States as an experiment in Masonic principles to practicing the occult.

This compass sports a sun, which represents King Solomon’s temple.

Pope John Paul II, fearful that the lodge with its temples, altars and oaths was antiCatholic, once proclaimed that Catholics involved in Masonic associations could not take Holy Communion. And “The Da Vinci Code’s” author Dan Brown added to Freemasonry’s enigma in his book “The Lost Symbol,” painting a picture of bejeweled power brokers drinking from a wine-filled skull in a dark temple steps away from the White House. It’s true that Masonry’s symbols can be found everywhere— from the all-seeing eye on a dollar bill to the rituals used by the Mormon Church. But everything Masons do, from the “secret handshake” to passwords, can be found on the Internet, said Hailey resident Ted Angle, who has been a Mason since 1986. “There were good reasons for secrecy during periods of political or religious strife,” he said. “The ‘Indians’ who dumped the tea during the Boston Tea Party, for instance, were said to be Masons.” Called “the Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God,” Masonry’s singular purpose is to make good men better, Angle said. To achieve that, the fraternity requires a belief in Supreme Being, and for each man to practice his faith as he sees fit to do good in the world. Indeed, North American Masons contribute more than $2 million a day to charitable causes, including the Scottish Rite’s childhood language disorder clinics and the Shriner’s hospitals, which offer free care for children who have been burned or have orthopedic problems. The Hailey Lodge was established in 1884 while Idaho was yet a territory—more than 20 years after Masonic Lodges had been established in Silver City, Idaho City and Florence mining camps. The original hall was destroyed by fire in 1889 that destroyed most of Hailey’s downtown. The second lodge, built at what is now the Bullion Square shopping center, burned in 1927. John Rutter, a Mason born in Cornwall, England in 1888, built the current lodge in 1937 across the street from the historic Emmanuel Episcopal Church. It was one of many notable projects for Rutter, who also built The Liberty Theatre, Rialto Hotel, Guyer Hot Springs hotel and pool, St. Thomas Episcopal

Church, St. Charles Parish Hall, the Christiana Club, Blaine Manor and Hailey Medical Center, the Harris Block furniture store and apartments and even Hailey’s city water system. The lodge, now on the National Register of Historic Places, is a one-story rectangular building covered with red brick brought from Salt Lake City. An arched medallion with the Masonic square and compass is centered over the double-door entryway. The building is lit by natural light streaming through multipaned sash windows, and four glass tear drop shaped ceiling lights hanging from 12-foot ceilings and dimmed by hand crank. A slightly raised platform with a row of auditorium-style seats runs along each side of the room. At each end, aligned east to west in keeping with the east-west orientation of King Solomon’s temple, is a dais with ornate wood chairs and podiums. In the center is a wooden podium and padded kneeler. “One of cool things is that you see all walks of life—doctors, lawyers, masons, motorcycle riders, laborers. But during closing, the Master asks the Senior Warden how we should leave. And he answers, “On the level.” That’s when we all step down to the same level, no matter who we are. There’s that sense of equality,” said Angle. The monthly meetings include discussion about public service projects in between prayers and the pledge of allegiance. But they also include rituals and instruction using stone cutter’s tools such as the square and compass as symbols designed to chisel “good men into better men.” “At one point, we ask how we’re to act. ‘By the plumb’— that is, to conduct ourselves in an upright matter,” Angle said. Angle didn’t become a Mason until 1986 because his career as a military pilot kept him on

Freemasonry is the oldest and largest fraternal organization in the world with 2.5 million Freemasons in North America and 6 million worldwide from Iceland to Brazil. Here are some Masonic principles: Faith must be the center of our lives. No one has the right to tell another person what he or she must think or believe. Each person has a responsibility to be a good citizen, obeying the law. It is important to work to make the world a better place for all.

the move. He wishes would have joined earlier. “My father was a Mason. And I never met a person who was a Mason that I didn’t respect. And that speaks volumes. I wanted to be part of it, perpetuate it,” he said. The Hailey membership grew from 11 at its beginning to a high of 225 during War Years. At one time, Lodge members used to hold ceremonies on top of Baldy, restricting those riding the chairlifts to Masons, when Union Pacific owned Sun Valley Resort and many of Sun Valley’s employees were Masons. Today’s Masons are talking about restoring that tradition, Angle said. Only men can be Masons. That doesn’t bother Nyal Pedersen’s wife, Meeka, because she believes man need time with men and women time with women. She belonged to Job’s Daughter’s, the girl’s offshoot of the Masons, as a girl. And now she belongs to Daughters of the Nile, joining other Masons’ wives in Twin Falls and Gooding. “I’ve known many of the people in this group for 41 years so the meetings give us a chance to catch up on family while we’re making pillow cases or stuffed animals or blankets for children in hospitals,” she said. Meeka said she was impressed with how Masonry brought out the best in her father. And she’s seen the same thing happen with her husband. “It makes you want to be a better person, to live up to what they stand for,” Nyal said. tws

Join the TimeExchange By JIMA RICE


bout a month ago, I spent a couple of hours with an entrepreneur, coaching him on the plan he has for a new business. Then, using his great carpentry skills, he spent two hours repairing two bureau drawers and other items in my home that had been annoying me. We had fun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; getting stuff done, getting to know each other a little better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and no cash was exchanged. Nor had we bartered with each other to determine how much of his time as a craftsman was worth how much of my time as a business consultant. The exchange was simple: two hours of his time for two hours of mine. We did what is called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;time trade,â&#x20AC;? simply swapping hours of service, the basic concept of what is called a Time Bank. It was satisfying, practical, and neighborly. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be great if that were possible for residents up and down the Wood River Valley? That is, possible to do time trades for all kinds of services with all kinds of people, and to keep track of every exchange through a personal software account that shows â&#x20AC;&#x153;depositsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;withdrawalsâ&#x20AC;? of what are called â&#x20AC;&#x153;time dollars?â&#x20AC;? It is possible. The non-profit, Jigsaw, has organized a local Time Bank called the Wood River TimeExchange. It starts operations today and we invite everyone to join. Jigsaw researched the idea for a couple of years, pursuing its mission to support entrepreneurs, small businesses, and a sustainable economy in the Wood River Valley. When Kim Mazik (Hailey Sport & Spine Physical Therapy) and Jim Spinelli (The Weekly Sun) offered to collaborate, the process gained traction in just a few months. We formed the Wood River TimeExchange, talked with the experts, and became an affiliate of the national organization, TimeBanks USA. As an affiliate, the Wood River TimeExchange has access to all Time Banking resources. Certainly, the timing couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be better. Local cash flow is challenged, many in the community need assistance, and there is wonderful talent begging to be tapped. The TimeExchange will en-

able community residents to benefit from each othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; skills, talents, and expertise through the mutual exchange of needed services - ranging from personal care to home improvement to car repair to tutoring, and everything in between. Spend an hour doing something for another TimeExchange member, record that hour as a Time Dollar in your electronic Time Bank account, and determine how you might spend your Time Dollar having someone do something for you. Dr. Edgar Cahn, founder of the Antioch School of Law, conjured the idea of Time Dollars thirty years ago. Times were tough then, too. Massive cuts in government social welfare spending led Cahn to reason that, lacking enough old money to fix the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems, why not make a new kind of money to pay people for what needs to be done? The practice of Time Banking looks like this. A person opens an account in the TimeExchange, listing their skills and availability to help others in the database. They also list items they need help with, such as painting a room or planting the garden. Members connect by searching website listings and make their time exchange arrangements directly. When one member has finished helping another, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;helperâ&#x20AC;? electronically deposits the appropriate Time Dollars in his Time Dollar account, one Time Dollar for each hour worked. When that person, in turn, needs help, he can â&#x20AC;&#x153;purchaseâ&#x20AC;? it from any TimeExchange member using his banked Time Dollars. Non-profit organizations are also eligible for TimeExchange membership and have found it helpful for garnering volunteer support. The Wood River TimeExchange offers membership ($25 annually) to anyone from Timmerman Hill to Stanley. Orientation meetings about the TimeExchange will be held Monday, May 23, 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Wood River Sustainability Center in Hailey, and Tuesday, May 24, 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Community Y in Ketchum.

habitat for non-humanity

Humanity is our maiden name By BALI SZABO

“A civilization flourishes when people plant trees under whose shade they’ll never sit.”

If you’re planting trees, shrubs, perennials and designing a space, gardening is about the future. Mother Nature is the most futuristic entity I know. If I really thought that the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were about to ride into town, I’d stick to planters, pots and window boxes and maybe some veggies. For the bulk of humanity’s past, worrying or speculating about the future was non-existent. Paleontologists think that, along with post-Ice Age settlements and agriculture, came burial rites and religion, which dominated futuristic thought until the Renaissance. Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings of machines, the explosion of science, realism and secular humanism opened the speculative floodgates about the future. Burning in Hell just wasn’t cutting it. I suspect our faith in technology (tools) predated our faith in a god. Today, positive visions of the future place their bets on technology, and less and less on humanity. If anything, we are becoming a liability, and in many ways being devalued. The Singularity is a school of thought that has arisen at the nexus of several trends. Driving it is the soul of the machine – speed. Moore’s Law states that computing speed and ability to do work doubles every 18 months. And so it has, leading us toward a kind of critical mass, an ability so compelling as

to be unstoppable. Feeding this new vision of omnipotence are quantum advances in biotech, molecular-level nanotech, physics (the God particle), the viral expansion of streaming media and the socio/neural spread of Facebook and its kin. What’s Utopian here is the idea that humanity can take charge of its future and no longer be at the mercy of the ‘surprise.’ Through the exponential growth of computing power (soon they’ll be designing themselves and innovate), we can marry our mind/consciousness to the motherboard and co-opt the unknown, become the agent, not the victim of change. What’s proposed here is the marriage of our consciousness (an organic process) with the virtually limitless computing power of electronics (bio-chips). One tantalizing carrot dangled by Singularity’s proponents is the conquest of disease, which is seen as a curable nuisance once

we unleash our army of intelligent nanobots. Eventually, we will not need our cumbersome bodies. If today we are a force of nature here on Earth, tomorrow we will be the force of nature in the galaxy. These ideas are trespasses on some sacred cow pastures. Molecular biologists like Dennis Bray are amused by the naive yet arrogant megalomania. The religious either see this as a threat and utter nonsense, or just another path to God. But technology is bringing us closer to a redesign and redefinition of sentience, the nature and meaning of life, of consciousness and all its properties. When I dig in the earth, I dig in the universe. Life is its proxy. I have but one question: Wherefore art thou in all this, my rose, my columbine? tws

Upcoming Community Library Presentations Birding, salmon, wackiness By KAREN BOSSICK


athleen Cameron is enamored with bird migration—so much so that she’s made countless flights of fancy herself to study birds in flight. She’s even led three birding trips to Costa Rica as part of her Majestic Feathers Bird Tours. On Thursday Cameron will lead an armchair presentation on “Bird Migration: The Teeny Hero’s Journey” in a free presentation at 6 p.m. at The Community Library in Ketchum. The presentation will include her own pictures, as well as a short video she shot and edited called “Seasons of Wings” as she describes the basics of bird migration between the northern and southern hemispheres and the strategies birds employ to return to “just the right place” for the summer breeding season. “I think it’s fascinating that such small creatures can fly such great distances—some by day, others by night. They are truly miraculous in what they do,” she said. Birds have a complex system for migration that no one fully understands. But Cameron will try to explain it. She will also focus on birds Wood River Valley residents can see at feeders outside their kitchen window. “I want people to know what that bird has gone through to be here and why they’re here,” she said. “I also want to explain what they can do to attract birds.” In addition to Cameron’s presentation, Steven Hawley will talk about his book “Recovering a Lost River: Removing Dams, Rewilding Salmon, Revitalizing Communities,” at 6 tonight. The free presentation is sponsored by Idaho Rivers United.

movie review

Girls just wanna have fun Jon rated this movie



risten Wiig is a very funny lady. If you’ve ever seen her on Saturday Night Live, you are already a fan of her huge talents. Now she steps onto the big screen in a starring role that she both wrote and also produced in the new movie Bridesmaids. As luck would have it, she also has the powerhouse executive producer Judd Apatow, who has never met

a joke too low, and the two have melded a film that should connect with audiences in a big way. Frequently called by critics a female Hangover, for this critic the film just doesn’t measure up. But the audience at the screening I attended roared with laughter and couldn’t have had a better time. Many were women. The film is, after all, a chick flick. But it is a new hybrid where the chick flick meets testosteronedriven male raunchy comedy. What makes Bridesmaids different is that it is a comedy with heart as we achingly follow the arc of Wiig’s story. After losing her business and boyfriend, Wiig then becomes the maid of honor for her childhood best friend’s wedding. At odds is the new best friend of bride Maya

Rudolph, played by Rose Byrne. Byrne is perfect in every way and Wiig just can’t measure up. Her attempts are the heart of the comedy. But while she looks for happiness, it may just be right in front of her in the form of charming cop Chris O’Dowd. The art of the film is the clever way that it looks at female relationships and lives up to its crown as a chick flick. It is refreshing to see a comedy that works on more than one level and that is a testament to Wiig’s screenplay. When you want to be successful in Hollywood, it’s always a better shot if you can control your own material. Wiig has done it with style. tws

As Munchie and Lucky settled in, the Manor began to add other pets, including a black Lab named Bentley, a Pomeranian named Arthur and several cockatiels named Blossom, Chloe, Tweety and Sylvester, along with a parakeet named Blue. Their bird cage, which reaches nearly to the ceiling, is a popular gathering place for families visiting loved ones at the home,

as well as blind residents who gravitate to the wolf whistles. “The animals give the residents unconditional love when they’re depressed. And they give the residents someone they can share their secrets with, as animals don’t tell,” said Jaskowski. “The animals make it very apparent that this is not an institution. This is home and we’re one big family.” tws

Last week of this year’s solar journey through Taurus It’s the last week of this year’s solar journey through Taurus, and the qualities of this sign will grow stronger each day. Mercury and Venus both move into the sign of the bull on Sunday and conjoin in Taurus on Monday, highlighting the sensual earthiness for which this sign is known. Taurus is also connected with money, and many will be irresistibly drawn to the idea of retail therapy, especially for luxury items. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Money motivates you, especially when your goals happen to have a lot to do with your professional, and actual, survival. But money is not the only reason you do your job with great attention and skill. You have something personal to prove, and this week you will prove it well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To compare is human nature. But constant comparison is a debilitating habit, especially if it involves scanning and judging every person in the vicinity to determine how you measure up. Take a break from being analytical in this way. You’ll find joy this week as you accept others and yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Whether giving a speech or telling an impromp-

tu story to a friend, you will easily capture the attention and imagination of your audience. With practice, you’ll get better at delivering your message. By the end of the week, your influence will be obvious. People will either do as you suggest, or copy your example. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like to acquire things, but you like to give them away even more. You would rather cycle through a menagerie of curios and oddities than hoard and keep old things indefinitely. You’ll negotiate with those who have a different manner of dealing with possessions, and you’ll benefit from striking a mutual agreement. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). No matter how great you are at what you do, you can always make improvements. Some are discouraged by this idea -- not you. You’ll jump at the chance to develop your talents, even when it comes at a cost. You’ll enjoy the education and the process of polishing your skills. Your income will be favorably affected. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The atmosphere whirrs with an abundance of earth-sign energy that you will find most agreeable to your health and well-being. You’ll enjoy enhanced

powers of self-discipline, which the other signs will probably find quite unfair given the impressive level of selfcontrol you already exhibit. So try not to show off! LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your natural talent for balancing life will come into play this week. Though you’ll give the required amount of attention to the activities that allow you to make ends meet, your involvement will be limited in some way because you refuse to let work take over your entire life. Wednesday and Friday will be the most fun. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are open-minded, but not overly impressionable. You’ll meet a person who has a lifestyle that is very different from yours, though this person also shares many of the same values you hold dear. This meeting may inspire you to investigate new alternatives, especially having to do with finance and diet. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your mind has many chambers, and you always get a thrill when a new one opens up. Your travels, either physical or intellectual, will cause such an opening to happen this week. And because your imagination is so fertile now, books and other media will be nearly as exciting as real-life experience. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be around those whom you’ll deem worthy of impressing. It is possible that the most impressive thing you could do is simply to be comfortable with yourself and confident in your choices. You have an abundance of charm, as long as you focus on listening more than on telling what you know. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be acutely and perhaps even painfully aware of your ambitions, which will inspire you to work harder than ever for gratification that seems to be indefinitely delayed. Wednesday offers an opportunity that could finally bring you the satisfaction you’ve longed for, and not a moment too soon. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Care for yourself well this week, not only because you’ll feel better for the effort, but also because the way you present yourself is a treat to the others around you. Loved ones will gather to reminisce, laugh and enjoy one another. Food will play a big part in the celebration, and you’ll likely outdo yourself in this regard.

lynis Palazuelos Buersmeyer was 15 years old when she visited the British Museum in London. She vividly remembers the Old World jewelry exhibition she saw, and that afternoon filled a notebook with designs, some of which she has since made and sold. Thus, a lifetime of jewelrymaking and design started. Trained as an architectural designer, with involvement in the Biosphere II and high-end residential design, Glynis has served clients in San Francisco, Sun Valley and Scottsdale, Ariz. After retiring from architecture, she returned to her first passion, studying metalsmith-

ing and jewelrymaking. After practicing her arts in Arizona for a few years, she was accepted into a juried exhibition at Gallery 100 in Tempe, and she has never looked back. Having sold her jewelry in private sales all over the United States, Glynis is now developing her own jeweler’s community here in the Wood River Valley and has found any number of resources and friends. Find her innovative jewelry this summer at the Ketchum Arts Festival, July 8-10, or contact Glynis at;; or (208) 720-7830.

Painting the figures of life By JONATHAN KANE


ommunity School senior India Emerick is a very confident young woman. Besides carrying a 4.0 grade point average, Emerick also excels as an artist and has been accepted to Stanford. She also just had the experience of a lifetime when she spent six weeks in Paris and Florence pursuing her passion of figure drawing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I was young I would fill up notebooks of my drawings but they were always of people. I have always found the human form fascinating although I branched out a little bit in Europe. I was able to immerse myself in art for six weeks, see Europe and have an adventure,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up, I went through a fashion phase when I was twelve but I never received formal training so I decided not to pursue it. I have also been branching out into architectural drawing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that I could turn into a job and live internationally but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a huge math and physics fan, so architecture is probably out for me.â&#x20AC;? Emerick added that normally she draws for two or three hours a week but that in Europe she would spend four or five days painting and drawing while studying the Renaissance period and artists such as da Vinci and Michelangelo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While there, I fell in love with Paris. I loved my time in Florence but it was packed with tourists. I just had more of an emotional connection with Paris; it has a dedication to beauty that few places do. I love New York City but Paris is now my favorite city.

Every building has such exquisite detail which is hand carved. It just blew me away. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve traveled to at least fifteen countries and had never seen anything like it. In Florence I was able to stay in my own apartment. It was amazing to be by myself at seventeen and to have all that freedom and responsibility. But it sure was tough coming home. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready to get out, in a good way, but I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss the natural beauty that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist in other places.â&#x20AC;? Emerick was born in Hailey but at the age of four moved to San Francisco and Santa Cruz for three years. There she attended The Waldorf Schools. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mother credits that schooling for everything that has happened for me. My dad lived here and there was an opening at The Community School so we decided to move back. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a really great environment to grow up in. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so safe and the kids are really appreciated around here. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so beautiful. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been all over the world and this place still amazes me. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m over living in a small town and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to getting out, although it will always be great to come back. The downside of this place is that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot for teenagers to do, there are not a lot of new people to meet, and everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in your business. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to tell where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll live in the future but I hope to live internationally. I wish I had been raised around other languages.â&#x20AC;? Emerick began at The Community School in second grade and has been there for ten years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty amazing,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Community School Senior India Emerick

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful school, but like Sun Valley, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m ready to graduate and move onto the next stage of my life. My grade is like family because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been together so long. But like family we love each other and sometimes we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t but I know it will be tough to be away from them. Also, our teachers are incredible at The Community School and our relationship is one-of-a-kind. To be on a first-name basis with them is really incredible. They are very invested in us and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to have their full support and attention.â&#x20AC;? For Emerick, there is no problem at gaining support and attention for her efforts. tws

Each week, Jonathan Kane will be profiling a local high-school student. If you know someone youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see featured, e-mail leslie@



rama students at Wood River High School will present eight scenes exploring love lost and love found Thursday and Friday at the Community Campus Auditorium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost, Maineâ&#x20AC;? will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday, allowing viewers to take in the Colla Voce concert at The Liberty Theatre afterwards. A 1 p.m. matinee will be held on Saturday. The series of sketches all take place in the fictional town of Almost, Maine. One, for instance, features a guy sitting by himself in the Moose Patty Bar and Grill when he runs into an old girlfriend who happens to be there for her bachelorette party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a play we saw at the Rocky Mountain Theater Association Festival in Helena, Montana, last year,â&#x20AC;? said drama teacher Karl Nordstrom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since, the College of Southern Idaho

and the University of Idaho have done it, as well as a theater company in Boise.â&#x20AC;? The production will showcase two-time One-Act Festival Best Actress winner Sarah Hope and Best Supporting Actor winner David Fox, as well as their fellow seniors Crystal Millspaugh, Alec England, Kim Cortez and Mia Jefferson. Other actors are Katie Walton, Drake Arial, Emmet Fortuin, Sage Howe, Dani Theobald, Britlynn Ward and Francisco Molina. This is the first time the Wood River High School Performing Arts Academy has had an endof-the-season Performing Arts Showcase and the first time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done three shows in one season. The showcase is held in the same vein as the final concerts offered up by the choirs and orchestra. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for seniors and $3 for students, available at the door. tws

Sagebrush has a distinct aroma


ove it or hate it (and it certainly seems to attract extremes of opinion), sagebrush has a strong and distinct aroma. It wafts to us all summer long, especially after one of our rare summer rainstorms. But what causes the smell? You may have noticed that the aroma does not come from the flowers (so it is not to attract pollinators – sagebrush relies on wind for this), but from the leaves, stems, and trunks themselves. The scent is from a chemical that the plant produces called terpene. And if you are brave enough to chew on a leaf, you will discover the purpose this chemical serves – it tastes

awful! Terpenes are one of the chemicals many plants produce to discourage herbivory (being eaten). Tannins are another example, and can be found in pine needles. The cost to the plant to generate these chemicals is high, which is why not all plants produce them. Most of these antiherbivory chemicals are high in nitrogen. But once invested, they can help the plant to survive. Of

course, certain animals are willing to endure the taste for a meal – in the case of sagebrush, both pronghorn antelope and sage grouse are frequent diners. But in the end, the investment in protection pays off, leaving the majority of the plant intact. Got a question or want to draft your own ERCbeat? Contact the ERC at or 726-4333. tws

Flood Watch Blaine County officials are warning that there’s a potential for floods, thanks to snow that has lingered in the mountains. The rivers normally crest between the last two weeks of May and the first week of June. This year should be no exception. Protection of homes and personal property is the owner’s responsibility while local government agencies will be deployed to protect public infrastructure like roads and bridges. Use of sandbags and bladders without a stream alteration permit are permitted as long as they do not block the stream channel or floodplain and no sediments are released into the stream during or following the flood event. Bladders, sandbags, and similar barriers should be close to the home structure but not against it. Let the constructed barrier, not the buildings foundation, absorb the water pressure. Contact your local authorities if you have questions about procedures and processes in flood response activities. Any modifications to riverbanks and riparian areas must not proceed without a stream alteration permit from the Idaho

Department of Water Resources and Blaine County. No temporary devices or structures may be used to divert the river from its natural floodplain without a permit. The permit from Blaine County can be obtained through the Land Use and Building Services Department located in the County Annex Building, 219 First Avenue South, 2nd floor, Hailey, telephone 788-5570. Flash flooding and quickly rising waters can be caused by heavy rain events, and other weather events. Be aware of any unusual water events along the rivers and streams and report to them to local authorities. Stay informed as to local conditions by accessing the County’s website at, where emergency preparedness and helpful flood related links are located. Sign up for the emergency warning system through <http://www.blainecounty. org> homepage—Emergency Warning System. For more information on stream alteration permits: Business hours 788-5500 788-5570.

A Reel Recovery Retreat is scheduled for August 5-7, 2011 at Wild Horse Creek Ranch, near Mackay. The organization welcomes men in all stages of cancer treatment or recovery to enjoy a weekend of flyfishing in a supportive environment. St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation is excited to partner with Reel Recovery to support the upcoming retreat. The mission of Reel Recovery is to help men in the cancer recovery process by introducing them to the healing powers of the sport of fly-fishing, while providing a safe, supportive environment to explore their personal experiences with cancer, with others who share their stories. Reel Recovery is dedicated to providing cancer patients with information, education and a network of sup-

port that will help men with cancer as they proceed through their treatment and/or recovery. The retreat provides participants an opportunity to gain new insights about living with cancer and about coping with the psychological, social and emotional aspects of having the disease. Participants learn about treatment options, navigating the healthcare system, facing mortality, coping with stressful family and work-related situations. By learning from others in similar situations, participants can gain a fresh perspective about managing their disease and renewed hope about fighting and surviving cancer. Applications are available online at or at St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation office, 100 Hospital Drive in Ketchum. Contact Dick Wilson, Idaho State Coordinator, or (208) 866-2415 for more information about the retreat.

National H.S. Chess Championship

Sudoku: SILVER



he Wood River High School Chess Team traveled to Nashville, Tenn., to play in the National High School Chess Championship and performed very well against well-established teams and players. The event attracted approximately 1200 players and 330 teams from around the country and the Wood River team was the first team to compete from Idaho in the history of the tournament. “We accomplished all of our goals, which were to score at least 10.0 points and make it into the top twenty five. We scored 11.5 points and scored in 24th place,” says Coach Adam Porth. This was a great experience and privilege to compete against the top minds in the country. The tournament included three days of competition with seven rounds lasting four hours each at the prestigious Gaylord Opryland Resort. The Wood River team was in 27th place going into round seven and Desmond Porth (WRMS, eighth-grade) played a nail-biting game that continued until there was less than 20 seconds on the chess clock. His opponent made an illegal move and was penalized two minutes, allowing Desmond to add a full point to the team’s composite score and secured 24th place. “The Wood River team was greatly challenged in the U1600 section as our highest rated player was Nick Bruck (1227),” says Porth. Nick ended the tournament with four draws and one win against players rated almost 200-300 points higher than himself. Andrew Uriarte (1212) scored 4.0 wins against similar opponents. Alex Bates (unr.) was WRHS high scorer with 4.5 points in the unrated section. He also was ranked 19th out of 98 unrated players. Miles Hendrix scored 2.5 points, and Desmond

Porth ended with 2.0 points. Porth indicated that in every game but one, the opponents outranked Wood River players in the United States Chess Federation national ranking system by at least 100-200 points. Players also met Grandmaster Maurice Ashley, who signed boards and books of the team. He also provided some lessons and inspiration: “Stop, think, and visualize.” In addition, Alexandra Botez, an expert chess player, Canadian women’s champion and winner of the Kasparov All-Girls Championship, played blitz, or “fast chess,” games while waiting for rides. “Our pink shirts drew attention to our duel effort to win a trophy

Fat/stem cells: in the face, breast, hands, hearts and joints By DR. TOM CRAIS


t does appear that adipose- (fatty tissue) derived stem cells can substantially limit the amount of damage from a heart attack,” says Dr. Keith March in a recent article in New You magazine. Dr. March, M.D., Ph.D., of the Indiana University School of Medicine, chairs the Data Safety and Monitoring Board for stem cell research at the National Institutes of Health. If you haven’t already noted the information being disseminated about the value of adipose-derived stem cells, let this be your introduction into what seems to be one of the most exciting and promising areas of modern medicine. Fat transfers in plastic surgery date back about 100 years. During my plastic surgery training at New York University Institute of Plastic Surgery, I was introduced to a technique called dermal fat grafting. During the 1980s fat grafting similar to what we do today was in its infancy and many of us began transferring fat to facial and other body contours. Some surgeons at that time began injecting fat into the breast for augmentation. Although many plastic surgeons have contributed to this now rapidly expanding technique, Dr. Syd Coleman, faculty member of the NYU-IPS, has been the major force in documenting the technique, its safety and efficacy in plastic surgery. He has done this, focusing on fat transfers to the face, hands and breasts specifically for rejuvenation. My own experience with

During my three decades of plastic surgery and over four decades as a physician, I have never experienced rejuvenation of tissue for face or breast as effectively and as naturally as with fat-derived stem cells. This new area is termed regenerative medicine and it seems that many areas of therapeutic intervention will benefit from this technique. With ongoing interest, I hope to provide more informative data regarding ADSC therapies for not only cosmetic use, but also for advances in the treatment of other diseases of the heart, brain, joints and traumatic injuries. tws


Dr. Tom Crais completed a five-year general surgery residency at Boston University and then went on to New York University where he completed both a residency in plastic surgery and a fellowship in microsurgery. He was a clinical instructor in surgery at New York University Medical Center and Louisiana State University Medical Center. He specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery incorporating the latest techniques, such as fat grafting for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Crais practices in Hailey at 315 S. River St. Direct all inquiries to: tomcrais@aps.svcoxmail. com

Interpretive Exhibit

The Hailey Rodeo Park Interpretive Exhibit has received a $4,000 grant from the Idaho Humanities Council for Rodeo: A Story of Community. For more than a century, the rodeo grounds site has functioned as a community gathering place. Ultimately, the goal of the reconstructed Hailey Rodeo Park is not only to provide an ongoing, reinvigorated gathering place for residents and tourists alike, but also to provide a gathering place for stories that connect the present with the past and promote a meaningful sense of community identity. The project continues to seek donations of artifacts, photographs, film footage, original printed matter (fliers, programs, advertisements) and stories related to the history of the rodeo or the history of the site. The project also welcomes monetary assistance. The following items are of specific interest: 1954 copy of Argosy Magazine, which documented the appearance of Slim Pickens in the 1953 Hailey rodeo, where he dazzled the crowd with his bullfighting and comedy routines; chaps, reins, boots; i.e., a complete rodeo cowboy outfit; Sawtooth Rangers Riding Club uniform; additional rodeo queen trophies, outfits, hats, boots, etc. Anyone with items that may be of interest for inclusion in the exhibit can contact Tracy Anderson at Hailey City Hall at 788-4221, ext. 26.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I have to admit that it has been years since I've paid attention to my roof. However, the other day I noticed all the shingles were stained black. I would have assumed my husband had slathered some cosmetically challenged sealer on it, but he's afraid of heights. So we called a roofer who said we had a fungus and the whole roof needed replacing. That sounded ridiculous since it wasn't even leaking. The next roofer said the roof didn't need replacing but the fungus should be removed. Do I really need to do something about the staining?

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: Sounds like your

roofers are giving you two different pitches! Carry: You can always count on Cash for a bad pun. The fact is, either roofer could be correct depending on how long the fungus has been there. Cash: The black stains that you see on your roof, are most likely a fungus called Gloeocapsa Magma. It comes from airborne spores that embed themselves into your shingle. Typically, you would see it on houses that have overhanging trees.

Fast Facts Color Coordinated

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 05/15/11 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

Carry: And like many fungi, it is contagious. Once one house in the neighborhood has it, others can develop the same condition. Cash: The fungus affects the life of the shingles on your home. Since it is a black stain, it can absorb heat from the sun and raise the temperature of your roof 10 to 20 degrees. That increase in temperature not only raises the temperature in your home, but can also cause the gravel coating to breakdown quicker, shortening the life of your shingles. Carry: Fortunately, you may not need to replace your roof. It depends not on the unsightly fungus, but rather on the condition of

your roof shingles. However, it's not a good idea to wait until the roof leaks to replace old shingles. Cash: If the roof is in good condition, the solution is relatively simple. First, any trees overhanging the roof should be cut back. Then, either you or your roofer can apply a moss or algae killer to help remove the fungus. Carry: You do want to make sure that no one uses a power washer or chlorine bleach solution in removing the stains. Both can break the shingle or ruin its gravel coating. Cash: And before you call your roofers back, just make sure they are UP to the challenge!

Reader Humor Lost in Translation

When it's time to replace the roof on your house, take a second look at what color you choose. While many people select the same color, there may be a benefit to change. Black roofs, for example, absorb heat and can help raise the temperature of your attic area dramatically. White or cooler colors, on the other hand, reflect the light and help keep the attic area cooler. Depending on your climate, a roof color can make up to a 23% difference in your heating and cooling bills.

I've been a landscaper for many years and occasionally I'm amazed at the jobs I am asked to quote. Last week I got a call from a guy who was preparing to replace his roof. But before he would step up the ladder, he needed some bushes removed. He explained, "My wife planted them near the house years ago thinking that if I ever fell off the roof, they would help break my fall." "Seems like a helpful idea," I replied. "It would have been," he laughed. "Except theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pricker bushes."

Watch Your Step

Thinking about doing a repair on your roof? If so, be extra careful. Over 50 people are killed each year while working on the roof. Most of the accidents are due to carelessness. Make sure you are aware of your surroundings and are comfortable with working at heights. Many people fail to take proper precautions and accidently fall through skylights, touch electrical wires or fall off ladders. â&#x20AC;˘
