Eben Alexander: Proof of

Benefactor Ali Long is backing longtime friend Jolyon Sawrey’s design for a gazebo at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden.

Breaking Ground for Unique Gazebo STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


n time, the proposed gazebo at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden will shield dozens of people from sun and rain. But on Friday umbrellas were handed out along with hard hats as the Sawtooth Botanical Garden celebrated the groundbreaking for its new gazebo. Sun Valley resident Ali Long was among those who turned out. She has contributed a $60,000 matching grant for the project in memory of her mother—the late Ellen Corning Long, a Cleveland, Ohio, philanthropist, botanist and biologist who “loved making things grow.� “I like the fact that this will be a revenue generator for the garden as they use it for weddings and other parties,� Long said. Jolyon Sawrey, who worked with Dale Bates of Living Architecture for 10 years, based his design on tents used during the Medieval Renaissance. The metal roof will require less maintenance than the curving fabric of the tents, he said. “It’s organic and open. You can see nature all around you. And it’s classy—like my mother was classy,� said Long. It’ll be up to Joe Marx and Tim Carter of Idaho Mountain Builders to duplicate the fabric look in metal—a challenging feat, Marx noted. “It’ll be beautiful—pitched and pillowy. Certainly different.� To mark the groundbreaking, Sawrey rang Tibetan prayer bells to clear and purify the air. He followed that up by waving a smudge stick made of sagebrush around each of those attending the ceremony. “The Native Americans used sage burning to dispel negative ions. Many cultures use smoke to clean out negative experiences, germs, that kind of thing,� he noted. It’s believed that the gazebo will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $150,000. So far, the garden has raised $20,000 to match Long’s $60,000 donation. Bruce Smith, Ben Young and Liz Warrick are donating their landscaping talents to redesign the perennial beds, boulders and other features around it. John Balint, president of the garden board, said that Sawrey showed board members what the garden can become with his design. “It fleshes out the whole idea of making it a great garden to come enjoy. We were scared about how we were going to raise the money; then Ali stepped in. We just got a $10,000 donation last week. And even though we’ve been in a recession, the contractors in the community have kept stepping up to the plate. tws



n 2008 Dr. Eben Alexander’s brain shut down, his thinking and memory going as dark as if someone had yanked out the plug on a projector. For seven days he lay hooked up to a ventilator in a deep coma, his cerebral cortex having been attacked by a rare form of bacterial meningitis. Ninety percent of those who fall prey to this particular meningitis don’t survive. But Alexander not only survived—he says he got a peek at a life beyond the veil, a dimension his publishers have since called “Proof of Heaven.� “I learned that my views before my coma about how the brain creates consciousness and that birth to death is all we have were absolutely false,� said Alexander, now 59. “Such views are way too simple. They’re kindergarten-level thinking. And I would say that the conventional science view is going to go the way of ‘the earth is flat’ and ‘the sun goes around the earth’ kind of thinking. “Within a decade or two, that very simplistic, materialistic science that says it’s all quirks, electrons, protons and photons is going to fall away as woefully primitive and inadequate. And that’s because that particular science has nothing whatsoever to offer us to explain the mechanism of consciousness.� Alexander will discuss the events that led to his best-selling book, “Proof of Heaven,� and what he’s discovered since it was published in 2012, as keynote speaker at this weekend’s Sun Valley Wellness Festival. He will speak at 6 p.m. Friday in the Limelight Room of the Sun Valley Inn. A neurosurgeon who once taught and practiced surgery at Harvard, Alexander says he used to have a difficult time reconciling neuroscience with any belief in God, heaven or soul. “I grew up in a religious family—my father was a neurosurgeon with a strong faith in God and his father was a general surgeon who knew a God that was so far

beyond any potential of our science. I grew up in the ’60s and ’70s—the heyday of scientific materialism—and I believed science was the pathway to truth,� he said. “I still believe that science is a pathway to truth but I also know that the conventional science I bought into so completely before my coma is false, way too weak to explain so many phenomena of consciousness.� When his brain went dark, Alexander says he was ushered into a macabre, ugly realm that may have been purgatory. It gave way to a slow, spinning pure white light embellished with a lovely musical melody that opened into a heavenly valley with earthlike features that he calls the gateway realm. “I liken it to Plato’s Theory of Forms, which he described in ‘The Cave’ as possessing a more fundamental kind of reality than the material world,� he said. In this valley, Alexander said, were dogs jumping and children playing. Alexander was guided by a beautiful girl on the wings of a butterfly to a place where a supreme light came from an orb high in the sky. It blew through like a perfect summer breeze offering an awareness of “the divine, the all-powerful, the source, the all-loving created source.� “From my point of view, it was absolutely real—more real than the material room that we find ourselves in,� he said. Alexander likened his experience to looking up at night and seeing the universe splashed across the sky. “Then the sun comes up in the morning and you can’t see the stars anymore. It’s like the brilliance of our local consciousness veils the function of the brain and does not allow us to see through and see this higher existence, this spiritual room. In fact, the grander reality is hidden by that brilliance. When the filter of the brain is removed, we see the universe clearly for the first time.� When Alexander came to, the meningitis had wiped out everything from his


Dr. Alexander says he would have preferred to call his book “An N of One,� a reference to medical trials in which there is just one single patient. “But that probably would’ve sold 15 books,� he said.

long with the ‘green-up’ of mid-May comes the nesting season for various birds. While some build nests early when the site is not fully protected from biew, the process begins in earnest when the leaves hide the nests. We’re all familiar with the basic egg. We have them in the refrigerator: shell, membrane, white and yolk. In the making of an egg, the yolk comes first. It begins to accumulate a week before being laid. The rich color comes from the plant carotenoids in the mother’s diet. The color can be pale because the environment isn’t providing enough of the pigment, and the mother has only so much stored nutrients. By the last egg in the clutch, she may have run out of gas. The first egg gets the best of everything. The goodies are not doled out evenly. Future coloration and/or strength of song, both vital to maintaining territory and attracting mates, often depends on this sequence and confers a distinct evolutionary advantage. The future embryo (germ layer) sits atop the yolk. When the yolk is full size, it is expelled from the ovary and fertilized with the male seed stored from a previous romance. As it travels down the uterus it receives injections of nutrients, adding the egg white (albumen) around the yolk. Birds, like deer and other ungulates, can time the fertilization so that birth will occur at an optimum time, when both climate and availability of food will aid the survival of the young. Animals use their ‘sixth sense,’ Us humans use a calculator. There was no baby boom between 1929 and 1942. The post 9/11 lean years have

come to an end (2009). The U.S. energy renaissance will result in the rebirth of domestic manufacturing, greater access to a living wage, a real estate recovery and, of course, a baby boom. Recessions are bad for family formation and relationship permanence. Neither humans nor animals are robots, or prisoners of instinct. We can both adjust to circumstances and make choices, at least up to a point. As the egg keeps moving, it gets a membrane and, finally, the liquid calcium carbonate that hardens into a shell. This is a very species-specific process. The developing embryo needs to breathe and expel CO2 (gas exchange is by diffusion only). Thousands of tiny pores in the shell allow for this. Their size and number are exact to control water loss and the entry of microorganisms. There’s a precise relationship between eggshell

porosity and surface-to-volume ratios (the latter is vital to the size, shape and function of all living organisms). Since egg sizes vary—from the hummingbird’s pea to those the size of a soccer ball—shell thickness, pore sizes and numbers also exist in maddening variation. We have no idea how these microscopic pores are determined, but they work. Birds, like wildflowers and mammals, began with the extinction of dinosaurs 65 million years ago, so there’s been a lot of evolutionary time to get it right. Whether it’s birds or the complexity of human neural networks, the intricacy of these minute mechanisms are mindboggling. By the way, the first hummingbird advanced scout buzzed me yesterday. They’re coming early. tws If you have question or comments, contact Bali at this e-mail:

Why Bother Cleaning Up After Your Dog

Why bother cleaning up after your dog? To begin with, not picking up after Fido is against the law. Blaine County Animal Code 4-4-3 states that pet owners must clean up after their pets. Apart from being a nuisance that can ruin a nice hike, dog waste contains fecal coliform, salmonella, strep and giardia, all of which can cause disease in humans and pollute our pristine rivers and streams. What some believe is just “natural fertilizer” is actually an offensive pollutant that we need to keep off the trails and out of our streams. Most of our furry friends relieve themselves within the first 50 yards of leaping out of the car. Keep an eye out for your pet, bag that poop and help keep our trails clean. The ERC’s PUP Program (Pick Up for the Planet) is a partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, BCRD, the Animal Shelter and the BLM. We need your help to continue to manage the sites that include 11 trailheads from Hailey to Fox Creek. To find out how you can support PUP call 726-4333 with questions or go to ERC Sun Valley on Facebook and post an image of you and your dog enjoying the trails! tws

Other Methods


hen you think of recycling, chances are you think of blue bins, plastic, aluminum/tin, and mixed paper. And that is great! But today we want to talk a little bit about non-traditional recycling methods. Below are a few handy ideas to keep everyday material out of the landfill: Burn untreated wood scraps in a woodstove or fireplace for heat. Donate usable clothing/books/ sporting goods/household items to our local thrift stores. Thrift stores love it when you drop off your plastic grocery bags, too! Take usable building materials to the Building Materials Thrift Store. Compost food and yard scraps. Take used tires to Les Schwab for disposal or even resale. All of these items have a home outside of our landfill. Before tossing something out, ask yourself if it can be recycled, reused, or if the landfill is the best place for it. Do you have a question for 5B Recycles? We want to hear from you! E-mail us at tws

Boxcar Bend Cleanup Gains Attention of Field and Stream STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK




ho knew shoveling dirt and pulling weeds could be so sexy?! A camera crew for “Field and Stream” was there to capture just that Saturday morning as members of the Hemingway Chapter of Trout Unlimited and the Wood River Land Trust did their annual spruce-up of Boxcar Bend. Zach Baker, a cameraman for Warren Miller, was one of two cameramen following people like Dave Woodward and Ed Northen around as Bob Marshall asked questions like, “Why do you do this?” A program director directed another cameraman to get shots of the Big Wood River below.“It’s a beautiful day and it helps preserve this part of the river,” said Ketchum resident Dave Woodward. “Field and Stream” shot the segment as part of its conservation Hero for a Day program, which it puts on its website. “Hopefully, we will give others ideas about how they can step up and take care of beautiful fishing places like this,” said Marshall,

aindrops kept falling on their heads. But that didn’t dissuade a bunch of hardy bicyclists—about half of them school kids escorted by their mamas and their papas— from participating in Friday’s Bike to Work and School event. They just pedaled harder than usual—always hopeful it wasn’t raining as hard just down the path. Those who braved the constant mist and the occasional downpours were rewarded with a breakfast buffet of bacon, sausage, yogurt and granola provided by Pete Lane’s. Ashley Schreiner and Liz Kanter baked more than a hundred cinnamon rolls on behalf of PACT. And Kate Weihe and Kirstin Webster of Higher Ground served egg and bacon breakfast burritos. PACT handed out Hot Buns, Warm Toes organic cotton socks made from 100 percent wind power—a boon for those who would arrive at work or school in need of a dry pair.

Ulysses Grant, King Ed III, Harriet Tubman, Eleanor Roosevelt, Pancho Villa, Walt Disney, skateboarder Tony Hawk and others. They’re part of the new Wall of Heroes third-, fourth- and fifth-graders have created as part of the school’s immersion in The Seven Habits of Healthy Leaders program. Students photocopied images of their heroes and transferred them onto the tiles outside the gym using underglaze carbon paper. They then wrote facts about those portrayed with underglaze pencils, covered the tiles with clear glaze and fired them again. “The Hero Tiles is a project suited for high school students, but I felt my students would love the challenge,” said the school’s

Some day, in the future, they can proudly say to their kids as they walk them to their first day of school here at Hailey Elementary: I did this tile right here when I was a student here.” Grace Parke chose actress Kelly MacDonald as her hero, she said, because “she’s really dedicated and passionate about her work and she really works at it. She’s taught me to go for my goals—you can get what you want if you work at it.” Arlee Allred said she picked First Lady Michelle Obama because “she’s good at a lot of things and she helps save the earth and teaches us good stuff. She’s taught me to always like everyone, even if they’re different from you. And, if you see someone getting bullied, stand up for them.”

Willa Laski was among the students who contributed to this Wall of Heroes, which features nearly 130 heroes.

Some youngsters picked hometown heroes, such as KT Martinez, a standout basketball player now at Dartmouth University; Mrs. Resko, a teacher who helped the nominee do math; Hailey POW Bowe Bergdahl; and Adrienne Lyle, an Olympic equestrian. Colleen Kelley Reali chose her father, Harley D. Kelley. “Brilliant surgeon, heroic vet, unconditional love giver, common sense thinker, non-judgmental supporter… advice giver, freedom lover, listener, love in form,” she wrote. School principal Tom Bailey

pointed to one tile with pride. It depicted his son Tommy Bailey, a high school wrestler. “This is a great way to honor leadership and creativity,” he said.

People and Carnivores is a non-profit partnership that fosters the connection between rural communities and the wild carnivores that inhabit their surrounding areas. Steve’s program will involve interactive games and activities to help youth learn about the biology and habits of bears, and how we can better live in concert with them. “This is the perfect program to leave kids with before they take off on their summer adventures,” says Mark Beaver of the ERC.

t took nearly a year to write the bylaws. But at long last the Sun Valley Youth Council is about to stage its first event—a dance. The summer kick-off dance will be held from 8 to 11 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at Elkhorn Springs Restaurant in Sun Valley. It’s open to current eighth- to 12th-graders with ID. Admission is $3 for those who RSVP in advance to and $5 at the door. “The purpose of our committee is to create events to benefit youth, to steer them away from going to drugs and alcohol. We thought the dance would be a good inaugural event. We don’t have many dances around here,” said Taylor Adler. The dance will feature professional DJ Russ Jaynes and Team Casino Parties of Boise. The committee will decorate Elkhorn Springs Restaurant with beach balls hanging from the ceiling and palm trees—anything to give it the feel of a beach part to kick off summer. The committee is entertaining the idea of holding a back-toschool dance, as well, Adler said. “We’re open to any suggestions,” he added. The Sun Valley Youth Council is comprised of nine area high school students who were appointed by the mayor and city council of Sun Valley. Youth Council members include Taylor Adler, Annie Ashfield, Cooper Bailey, Jolie Blair, Alex Feldman, Alex Harten, Chase Hutchinson, Mary Petzke and Lilly Rivera. tws

Paradis is so good, in fact, that she has received a full athletic scholarship to Robert Morris University in Springfield, Ill., in two sports to start in the fall. Paradis, who grew up in the Wood River Valley, has a tough job of picking which sport she likes more, but, when pressed, leans to softball. “I’ve been doing it my whole life so I wouldn’t be able to live without it,” she said. “My earliest memories are of T-ball and then starting to play catcher around eight years old. At first I really hated it but then, of course, I learned to love it. There is so much power you have controlling the game from that position. There is also a lot of pressure, but it’s nice to be on that side of it.” This year the team finished third in districts and Paradis compiled a .407 batting average. “Playing softball is a lot of fun and I just love sports and I would do anything to be around everyone. There are so many great memories. I also love the fact that even though it is a team sport, it’s also individual so you get both aspects.”

Standing 6 foot tall, Paradis decided to take on volleyball in eighth grade. “I was terrible at first because I had never played before and also because I was going through an awkward stage but, like everything else, you start to improve. I really like spiking the ball because it makes you feel so powerful.” This year the team finished second in districts and went on to state. “What I like the most is the confidence and that feeling that you get when you execute a play perfectly.” In the fall, Paradis will be competing at the college level in both sports at Robert Morris on a full scholarship. “They are not in the NCAA because it’s a smaller school and it is comprised of about 80 percent athletes. I went on a

recruiting website and was able to show the coaches a tape of my performances. The scholarship takes a lot of stress off the college thing and makes me feel good about myself and my accomplishments and, of course, makes things financially easier.” Does Paradis think she’ll make captain again of both sports? “Well, at Wood River, the volleyball captain is chosen by the seniors and the softball captain is voted on by the players. It’s nice to know that I’m a leader and that people would give me that position. I like to naturally help people and it’s a good way to show support for your teamtws mates.”

amie Felix enjoyed her stroll through Ketchumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art galleries over Christmas break. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget the gallery walk her boyfriend designed for her over spring break. Kyle Niederich, a 2006 graduate of Wood River High School, designed a treasure hunt for his girlfriend as she visited Harvey Art Projects, Gallery DeNovo, Gail Severn Gallery and the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. He asked his mother Lisa and his best friend Nate Nestegard to escort Jamie and her sister Brittnie Felix around the galleries, video camera in hand. Then, at each gallery, he placed an envelope containing a compliment describing what endeared her to him and a recollection of their time together. One envelope was accompanied with her favorite candy; another, prized pictures. Each was accompanied with a daisyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;her favorite flower. The last envelope, placed at Jennifer Bellinger Art Studio and Gallery, contained clues directing her into another room in the gallery. There was Kyle dressed in a suit and tie, flowers in hand, with a picture of the LDS Temple in Logan, Utah, standing on an easel. As soon as he saw Jamie, he dropped to his knee and asked her to marry him. Kyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, Doug and Lisa, were waiting nearby to offer their congratulations once the proposal was a done deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She loved it,â&#x20AC;? said Kyle. â&#x20AC;?But I was pretty nervous the whole time waiting for her. It was a long 45 minutes!â&#x20AC;?

Kyle Niederich and Jamie Felix are officially engaged.

Niederich and Felix attend Utah State University in Logan where Kyle is pursuing a career in physical therapy and Jamie, a career as a speech language pathologist. Kyle got the idea for the gallery walk because of Jamieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s avocation as a watercolor artist. The two plan to get married May 4 in the LDS temple in Logan.

Chasing Ice Screening Tickets on Sale Now Wood River Land Trust (WRLT), with partner Idaho Conservation League (ICL), is pleased to bring Chasing Ice, an extraordinary film about the changing climate and its effects on our worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glaciers to the Wood River Valley. The event is 7 p.m., Thursday, May 23 at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the spring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog headed to the Arctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: to capture images to help tell the story of the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changing climate. Even with a scientific upbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climate change. But that first trip North opened his eyes to the biggest story in human history and sparked a challenge within

him that would put his career and his very well-being at risk. Chasing Ice is the story of one manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of our changing planet. Within months of that first trip to Iceland, the photographer conceived the boldest expedition of his life: The Extreme Ice Survey. With a band of young adventurers in tow, Balog began deploying revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changing glaciers.â&#x20AC;? Tickets are on sale now at WRLTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and ICL local headquarters. Advance tickets are $8/adult and $4/children (12 and under). Ticket prices at the door: $10/adult, $5/children.

Gallery Walk Includes Dance and Musical Performances



Kaley Pruitt will perform three solo dances at various galleries, Saturday.

Jack Koonce’s oil on canvas titled ‘Quiet Waters’ can be seen at Gallery Broschofky during Saturday’s walk.



here are plenty of encaustic works, oil landscapes, aboriginal art and even fine-art terrariums to be seen. But Saturday’s Gallery Walk, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Ketchum’s art galleries, will feature art of another sort, as well—three solo dance performances by Kaley Pruitt. Pruitt grew up dancing with Footlight Dance Centre and Sun Valley Ballet and now lives in New York City, pursuing dance and choreography as a full-time career. Pruitt will perform a series of gallery dances, including interactive pieces in response to the gallery exhibitions. She will perform at 5:15 p.m. at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts, 191 Fifth St.; at 6:15 p.m. at Friesen Gallery, 320 First Ave.; and at 7:15 p.m. at Ochi Gallery, 350 Walnut Ave. The performances are sponsored by the Ketchum Arts

Commission. Pruitt has done similar sitespecific improvisations on park steps and other public places in New York City to build a broader community around dance and grow the public’s interest in dance. As usual, longtime Ketchum resident Wendy Jaquet will provide a guided gallery walk, providing snippets of information on the art, the Valley’s history and the state’s politics along the way. Guests should meet Jaquet at the Recreation Center on the Sun Valley Mall at 5 p.m. and travel by car to the Gilman Contemporary gallery. Walkers can also meet her at the Gilman gallery about 5:10. Other highlights of Saturday’s Gallery Walk: Broschofsky Galleries, 360 East Ave., will showcase new works by such gallery artists as Jack Koonce, Jan Grotenberg, Tom Howard, Brandon Cook and Michael Coleman that offer their

interpretations on the changing of seasons. Gallery DeNovo, 320 1st St. N., will present the terrariums of local artist Braden Jon Anderson. Anderson creates his “Terra Sanctuary,” from succulent plants, tropical foliage, mosses, branches, shells and feathers. “I often gaze into mine as if it were a crystal ball,” said Anderson, who will provide musical performances at 6 and 7 p.m. Kneeland Gallery, 271 1st Ave. N., will present new work from such artists as John Horejs, Debbie Edgers Sturges, James Palmersheim, Carl Rowe, Robert Moore, Lori McNee and Ovanes Berberian. Harvey Art Projects, 391 1st Ave. N., will showcase prints from young Australian artists who live in the Northern Territory. The project aimed itself at youth who are not in mainstream schools and are at risk from substance abuse, suicide, teenage pregnancy and violence,


Gallery DeNovo will present the terrariums of local artist Braden Jon Anderson during Saturday’s walk. Anderson will also provide musical performances at both 6 and 7 p.m.

and who lack self-confidence and are unmotivated. The art reflects what they find important in their daily lives and offers insight into issues facing indigenous youth. Friesen Gallery, 320 1st St. N., will present the works of Dara Mark who alternates bands of colors and white blank space, the pigment sliding along the page carried by water. Gail Severn Gallery, 400 1st Ave. N., will feature Christopher Reilly’s latest exhibition, “Sublime Metaphors,” which follows the lifecycles of insects and other beings from the natural world. Also “State of Nature II,” which features works of Brad Rude, Jane Rosen, Allison Stewart, Lynda Lowe, Hung Liu, Michael Gregory, David deVillier and others that speak of the tws outside world.


Young Australian Indigenous print makers from Yirrkala, northeast Arnhem Land, Australia will have artwork on display at Harvey Art Projects.

The Aboriginal Blues BY JONATHAN KANE


f you are looking for a fun movie to kick back with and enjoy, then go no further than the new film The Sapphires. Based on a true story, the film follows four aboriginal girls in Australia in 1968 as they form a soul band and then take the act to Vietnam. Directed by Wayne Blair and starring Irishman Chris O’Dowd as the piano player who ends up managing the band, the movie is good, solid entertainment, especially when the girls sing. Like when we first hear them at a segregated talent night where they blow the roof off a Merle Haggard classic and O’Dowd can’t help but notice. Agreeing to manage them if they switch to soul music, the girls reunite with a city cousin and take the show on the road to Vietnam. At the heart of the film are the four gorgeous voices that the girls have and their incredible acting chops. Where did they find these women? Chief among them is Deborah Mailman as the de facto mom whose battering

ram relationship with O’Dowd soon turns to love. Right with her are Jessica Mauboy (with the amazing voice), Miranda Tapsell and Shari Sebbens. All four characters are so well drawn by the screenplay that it is a joy to watch them work together and especially a joy to see them sing together. Under O’Dowd’s tutelage, the group gives themselves the name The Sapphires and are reborn as a soul troupe. We follow the tour through Vietnam as it plays upon a world stage and by tying the threads of racism in Australia with what is also going on in the United States. The Sapphires isn’t heavy fare but the music should catch your fancy and the winning performances will take it all home from there.

Getting Started With Finances BY TERRY DOWNS


local area businessman recently told me that he had never used the type of financial services provided by a financial adviser. Despite an admitted need for these services, this entrepreneur was hindered by one hurdle. He felt intimidated that his current financial situation would be an embarrassment when contrasted to the wealthy that sought financial services. I was initially surprised to hear this concern. But, I assured him that any meaningful trip starts with a first step. In the best-selling book the Millionaire Next Door, the authors report that 80 percent of America’s millionaires are firstgeneration rich. The implication is heartening. Each of these households achieved financial wellbeing with a journey that started from a much more modest beginning. The key is to take action toward bettering your financial situation now. Getting started today will allow you more time to reach your financial objectives. There is an assortment of

reasons for delaying a commitment to achieve mastery of your finances. A popular misconception is that you will be more likely to succeed in building a retirement nest egg once you have a better paying job. I have observed numerous occasions when a larger income or windfall allowed an irresponsible party to create even larger credit card debts. More money will not provide a cure for poor money management, though it may hide the problem for a while. The wise person develops the habits of success early in life and has a mastery of money regardless of income. To be certain, life can provide plenty of obstacles to wealth accumulation. But, unemployment, bankruptcy or a weak economy can be met head on by the family that is ruggedly determined to improve their lot in life. It is my own personal acquaintance with difficulty that helps me inspire others to push on through the challenges they face today to achieve their financial objectives. Successful sports teams and financially successful households

share some common traits. They both have a good understanding of the game they are playing. More importantly, both of them face their challenges with a game plan. Whether or not you share my enthusiasm for Bronco football, any honest critic will acknowledge that this team enters the field with a purpose fueled by a well-thought-out plan of attack. Similarly, achieving mastery of your household finances cannot be left to the winds of fate. There are practices and belief systems that are common in financially successful households. I encourage you to make a conscious decision to identify and implement the habits of the financially independent.

The Weekly Sun Garners Press Club Awards BY LESLIE THOMPSON




s part of the trio Dixie Chicks, Natalie Maines has had a prodigious career; five albums with Maines as lead vocalist, four Grammy Awards and a mountain of critical accolades. Since going on hiatus, sisters Marty Maguire and Emily Robison formed their band, the Courtyard Hounds, and Natalie Maines has kicked off her solo career by releasing Mother, a collection of covers and songs written by Maines and co-producer Ben Harper. Mother starts off with “Without You,” a song that originally appeared on Eddie Vedder’s second solo album, Ukulele Songs. Maines also covers songs by Dan Wilson (Semisonic), Roger Waters, Jeff Buckley and Patty Griffin, as well as The Jayhawks—all great songwriters in their own right. With her roots firmly entrenched in country music, she puts her own personal spin on Pink Floyd’s “Mother” and Jeff Buckley’s “Lover You Should Have Come Over” with simplicity and grace. With a voice like hers, it’s easy to see how the Dixie Chicks crossed over to mainstream popular music without ever losing their country audience. Her voice is fluid, like a country stream, and the song selection allows her to use her vocal skills without sounding like she’s trying too hard. With Ben Harper supplying most of the instrumentation and using his chameleonlike ability to switch musical styles in the blink of an eye, Maines turns a song like Patty Griffin’s “Silver Bells” into a fullout rocker without batting an eyelash. Mother elevates Natalie Maines from country star to rock tws star status.

Dining at Dashi Dashi, 220 N. East Ave., Ketchum 208-928-7703 $30 and under Modern Asian Cuisine with a Strong New American Influence Dinner Only Tuesday-Saturday 6PM-10PM July and August Dinners, Monday-Saturday 6PM-10PM BY MARGOT VAN HORN


ur Valley has been graced with Dashi since 2011. As soon as you walk in, you will note that the décor is simple but still elegant. It does have an Asian feel and so the décor fits in perfectly with the cuisine vision that Tyler Stokes, executive chef, owner and general manager, has. I always love hearing the stories from our Valley chefs on how they arrived here and how they formed their particular focus for their very own individual restaurant’s cuisine and subsequent menu. Listening to Tyler’s story was another inspirational culinary tale. Tyler, born in Wyoming (however, raised in Preston, Idaho), started out as many of our local chefs have, as a “fry cook” right out of high school. His culinary passion led him to Utah where he worked under one of the great corporate Ritz-Carlton chefs, Houman Gohary, and was taught traditional French cuisine. From there, still in Utah, Tyler trained under Chef Perry Hendrix, of The French Laundry fame, whose vision was more progressive than that of Chef Houman’s. That’s where the seed of fusion incorporating the elements of diversity grew within Tyler’s soul. In 2007 a Ketchum friend/chef of Tyler’s lured him, along with Tyler’s newlywed wife, to come here from Utah. Naturally, Tyler and his wife fell in love with our area. Tyler then became the executive chef at Globus, but he still dreamed of his own digs,

so Tyler and his dad decided to open in 2011 Tyler’s vision: Dashi. Culinary-wise, by that time Tyler decided that he was really drawn to the pure and subtle cuisine of the Japanese; therefore, you’ll get just that when you visit Dashi. Now when you eat at Dashi and in having read this article I hope that you’ll get a bit of the picture of what kind of a journey needs to be traveled by a would-be chef in the creation and establishment of his very own successful restaurant. I’ve always found that when dining at Dashi the food is exquisitely presented. Each dish is like a little painting. To accomplish this, I know that one has to use really fresh ingredients so as to be able to show the intense and vibrant zing of colors. Naturally that will lead to the subsequent excellent flavors. Tyler does that with his commitment to the local farmers and food producers and, of course, to his own inner artistic genie. One of his big passions is serving fish (raw and cooked) that is flown in fresh from all parts of the United States. He also enjoys serving special and unusual cuts of meat or game when in season. To accompany all of Tyler’s fabulous dishes, he offers a terrifically good and wide selection of sakes, beer and wine. So, when your heart desires a beautiful and delicious light “fusioned” fare with terrifically good flavor, Dashi is a must. As usual, make sure to say that The Weekly Sun and Margot gave you that inspiration. This once monthly column features our wonderful valley restaurants to which we can easily stroll-sometimes with the help of a bus or car ride— and is therefore called The Walking Gourmet. I hope that it will be a helpful guide for would be diners as well for all of our fine local tws eateries. #1...type into your browser address bar’ll land on our “britlink” site.

hen we hurt we often assume the worst. We become afraid and tentative with our bodies, telling ourselves that this much pain indicates major damage and will require a significant intervention to heal. This is especially true with new pain that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to have a cause. The possibility of surgery quickly comes to mind and we panic, seeking immediate relief and answers from our medical provider. Sometimes, there is a clear cause for the pain and treatment is direct and effective. Unfortunately, musculoskeletal pain often does not have a quick fix. All too frequently the excruciating pain is not from the bones or joints but from the surrounding muscles. The muscles themselves may have been injured or the muscles are performing a protective role. To prevent the body from overstretching or joints being damaged, the muscles go into spasm, tightening and locking down movement. Undoubtedly youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard a story of someone bending over to pick up the paper and their back goes out. We are all designed to touch the ground. Problems occur when the body has lost its ability to perform this movement. Bending over successfully is dependent upon many simultaneous body functionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the pelvis rotates forward, hips flex, back muscles lengthen and the spine rounds. If the body struggles with any of these actions and senses danger, it will protect itself and stop further movement by creating a muscle spasm. This incredibly painful condition is not an injury but protection for the body that, if the movement had continued, could have caused injury. Modern medicine can effectively treat the symptoms of chronic muscle spasms with corticosteroid injections and prescriptions for painkillers and muscle relaxants. Long-term relief, however, requires addressing the cause of the pain, which is generally muscle imbalance and body dysfunction. Treating the cause of the pain is best accomplished through therapy and complementary medicine. When you hurt, instead of assuming the worst, start with the basics of your structural

design. Ask yourself: Is my posture straight? When you look in the mirror does your reflection show your load-bearing jointsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;ankles, knees, hips and shoulders aligned vertically and horizontally with each other? Or do you see a rounded back with a forward head position, slumped shoulders, feet and knees that are turned out, uneven hips, and one arm forward of the other? If your posture is compromised, you have muscle imbalances pulling your bones out of position, which leads to dysfunctional movement and pain. Just like a building, if the foundation is not solid and the framing sturdy, stress and weakness will develop. Your body has the ability to heal itself and become pain free without invasive procedures. Posture alignment therapy re-educates the body to proper muscle engagement, movement patterns and skeletal position. To learn more about posture alignment therapy and experience posture exercises, join Jessica Kisiel at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival this weekend. She is teaching a class, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Align Your Body, Heal Your Pain,â&#x20AC;? in the movement studio on Saturday from 9:30-10:45 a.m. in the Ram Room.

HealthCare Plan Charged With Keeping People Well Unveiled STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


health insurance program that pays for value, rather than volume, was unveiled to Valley business people recently. The goal is to drive down healthcare costs while making patient health a priority, a representative of SelectHealth told those assembled in the new CompUCenter and Copy Center next to the Artists Down Under Gallery in Giacobbi Square. St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just established a new partnership with the Salt Lake City-based health insurance provider SelectHealth. The program is designed to incentivize preventative care and offer monetary rewards for those who make healthier living choices, such as eliminating tobacco use or losing weight. The traditional model of encouraging doctors to perform high volumes of procedures and tests would be discouraged where it can be determined that such procedures and tests would likely not affect the outcome. For instance, physical therapy may be recommended over the more expensive back surgery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a provider you may be paid for not doing things that you would have done before that will help the patient just as much,â&#x20AC;? said John Edgington, vice president and general manager of SelectHealth. Edgington said that 80 percent of healthcare dollars are spent by 5 percent of the people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can get those people to lose weight or begin exercising to get healthier, we save money,â&#x20AC;? he added. The new program can lower costs by sweeping waste out of the system, trimming the number of plans available, reducing unnecessary expenses and procedures and encouraging members to take charge of their own health behaviors, Edgington said. Fees for service will continue until St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s can figure a way to make the transition to fees based on outcome or value where providers are paid to keep people healthy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re transparent, so you as a community can hold us accountable,â&#x20AC;? Edgington added. Under the agreement St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s can put whatever premium dollars remain after all its claims and overhead costs are covered toward the following yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rates, bringing down premiums. Keith Perry, owner of Perryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant and a member of St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wood River Medical Center board, said he recently enrolled his employees in the SelectHealth plan and saw his premiums nearly cut in half, in part because the premiums are more equitable for women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;SelectHealth showed a willingness to think out of the box,â&#x20AC;? Perry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I got my monthly bill, I was surprised how much I saved.â&#x20AC;? tws

r. Zorba Paster, a regular presenter at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival, is back this year. On Saturday at 11:15 a.m. in the Sun Valley Inn he will discuss â&#x20AC;&#x153;Self-Efficacyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;The Missing Link: Finding the Balance Between Western Medicine and Eastern Thoughtâ&#x20AC;? as he talks about using the powers of body, mind and spirit to live long and well. But Zorba will add another dimension this year when he holds a fundraiser to help provide nutritional meals for patients of the Tibetan Delek Hospital, the primary tuberculosis center for Tibetan refugees living in India. It costs 95 cents a day to provide the patients the protein, vitamins and minerals that are a key to their survival. But many cannot even afford 50 cents a day to help cover the costs of the food that the hospital provides, regardless of their ability to pay Others are like a 70-year-old Buddhist nun who came to the hospital with a bacterial infection in her liver and hands and feet that had become swollen because of low protein, a problem shared by half the Tibetan population. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Give-A-Mealâ&#x20AC;? fundraiser will be held at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the SFP Studio, 680 E. Sun Valley Road in Ketchum. Paster will talk a little about his mission, after which attendees will be able to make a donation

toward the cause, said Kristin E. McMahon, stewardship coordinator of St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wood River Foundation. There will be drinks and hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres. Those who wish to attend are encouraged to RSVP at 208-7278419 by the end of today. Paster is St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wood River Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s featured health and wellness speaker.

We Must Tell New Stories BY KAREN BOSSICK


uane Elgin credits his childhood on an Idaho farm with making him the visionary constantly consumed with such questions as: Who are we? Where are we going? How is the universe alive? “I was given the great gift of growing up on the land and seeing things naturally, as they are,” said Elgin, who grew up in Wilder—10 miles outside Caldwell. “We didn’t have TV until I was 12 and there were only a few radio stations then. So during the day I would walk around the land, observing and thinking, and at night I’d lay on my back looking up into this enormous sky filled with stars.” Elgin’s childhood on the farm took him to the nation’s Capitol where he served as a senior staff member of a Presidential Commission on the American Future. And it led him to write such books as “The Living Universe,” “Promise Ahead,” “Voluntary Simplicity” and “Awakening Earth.” He also co-authored the book “Changing Images of Man” with Joseph Campbell and others.

Elgin will relate some of the questions that are currently consuming him at 11:15 a.m. Sunday at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival when he presents “Great Transition Stories.” One of the areas that has concerned Elgin since the 1970s is that of how we treat the Earth. That concern has only intensified with the world’s population tripling in his lifetime, the ice caps melting and fears over cheap oil and clean water running out. “By 2020 we have the perfect storm to produce a world in crisis,” he said. If things are breaking down at the bigger level, we need to learn to build community to pull together, he said. “We’ve never had a situation where the entire world is at risk. I say: Let’s prepare for this time by stepping back, being curious about what’s going on here and telling ourselves new stories about what is going on here.” Humanity has four stages: toddler, teen-ager, adult and elder. The good news is that we’re on the verge of maturing into a teen-ager. And teens have lots of energy, and idealism, Elgin

Habits, Not Genes, Key to Longevity, Health BY KAREN BOSSICK


kinawans seem to have found the key to the fountain of youth. They count one of the highest percentages of centenarians among them. And they have one of the largest disability-free life expectancies in the world, with low rates of heart disease, breast cancer and prostate cancer. Sun Valley resembles Okinawa in many respects, says naturopathic physician James Rouse. “These places are called blue zones. Blue zones are places where people enjoy incredible longevity and good health. And good health comes down to a couple factors: diet and lifestyle. Also, community experience where people support one another—and you certainly have that in Sun Valley.” Rouse, a naturopathic physician and QVC Network wellness doctor who is best known for his “Optimum Wellness” segments, will discuss ways everyone can enjoy longevity and good health when he speaks on “Leading the Anti-Inflammatory Lifestyle” at 9:30 a.m. Sunday in the Sun Valley Inn’s Continental Room. Rouse lives 8,500 feet above sea level in the mountains 45 minutes west of Denver in a solar-powered home where he grows much of the organic vegetables he and his wife eat. Living long and healthy boils down to eating the right foods and exercising the right way, he says. To that effect, he gets up at 4 every morning to meditate, practice yoga, lift weights and do interval training, such as wind sprints. Doing this first thing in the morning raises the level of hormones like dopamine, when the body is under the influence of stress hormones like cortisol, he says. He follows his exercise with a breakfast of three eggs and dark green leafy vegetables, including kale and spinach. “Food is the most powerful element there is for creating optimal wellness,” says Rouse, who occasionally treats himself to such treats as sweet potato coconut cookies and grain-free apple pie. “As for exercise? Exercise only on the days you eat.” Rouse says he is buoyed by the plethora of research going


Dr. James Rouse is a primary care physician with a background in homeopathy and nutritional medicine.

“Your genes will express themselves the way you express life.” on right now concerning how our lifestyle affects the way our genes in our body express themselves. Our behaviors have a greater effect on our health, longevity and overall vitality than our genes, he said. “If you’re concerned about aging and disease, you should look at your daily habits—even our emotions and outlook on life are powerful influences. If you eat a poor diet, are pessimistic, judgmental… if you read a lot of depressing things and watch bad news all the time, these express themselves in your genes. Your genes will express themselves the way you express life,” he said. Sometimes people think their own situation is dictated by what their parents and grandparents faced. If their parents died in their 60s, they think they’re going to follow in their footsteps. But that’s not true, Rouse adds. “Ninety-five percent of it is our habits. And it’s pretty amazing how you can change one habit and that can change your entire life. And don’t forget: The way you take care of yourself has a profound effect on everyone around you. When you’re vital and happy and really alive everyone else is going to feed off that vibration and energy. “ tws

Duane Elgin

noted. “Teens often exhibit risky behavior—so much so you sometimes wonder if they’ll make it to adulthood. But I have three kids and they did grow up and they’re now wonderful adults. My point is: We can get there. We’ve got some real learning to do as a collective people, as we call on creativity and other things that matter. But we can get there.” tws

Her last program took her to northern Idaho in August and featured a final public appearance of her oldest educational bird, Ollie, the great horned owl. For those who cannot attend the dedication and memorial service, donations can be sent to Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary, PO Box 2004, McCall, ID, 83638.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, After a bit of pushing and prodding, my wife convinced me to make a few repairs around the house. I started by hiring my out-of-work neighbor to wallpaper the bathroom. He thought it went well until I pointed out that the pattern was upside down. That was pretty discouraging. Then my wife wanted a new sink added in the laundry room. I let my "want-to-be actor" brother-in-law do that. During the job, he somehow crossed the pipes in the wall. Now the downstairs toilet flushes with steaming hot water. That can be dangerous if you're not careful! I've had enough. We're adding some cabinets in the basement, but this time I want to hire a seasoned handyman. The classifieds are full of guys offering their services, but how do I know who I'm hiring? What's the best way to tell if I'm hiring a professional or another out-of-work actor?

Carry: There's something to be

said for hiring an out-of-work actor to build your cabinets. Harrison Ford worked as a carpenter for George Lucas before landing his first major role in Star Wars. Cash: However, if your neigh-

bors and in-laws are doing a poor job, then you need to hire someone with better skills. Between the wallpaper and the toilet, your bathrooms could use some professional help. Carry: Now there's nothing wrong with hiring your friends or relatives to do work around your house as long as they have the correct skills for the job. It seems like, in your case, neither of these two had the right experience. Cash: For complicated jobs like plumbing, it's very important to hire a licensed professional. After all, a leaky pipe can cause a lot of damage to your house. Carry: Every handyman is different. Some are well versed in multiple disciplines from plumbing

and sheet rocking to landscaping and concrete work. Others are more specific in their skills. Whether you hire someone who does it as a full-time job or parttime on the weekends, what matters is their skill level and ability to do the job. Cash: As you look for a carpenter to build your cabinets, be sure to ask for some references, but more importantly, ask specific questions about their previous experience. Before you hire them, you should feel comfortable in their ability to do the work properly. Carry: And regardless of who you hire, keep tabs on the job they are doing. That could help prevent something else from going wrong in your bathroom.

Indoor plumbing is something most of us take for granted everyday as we wash our clothes, flush the toilet or turn on the dishwasher. However, even in today's technologically advanced society, there are still many homes without indoor plumbing. According to the government Census, approximately 670,000 homes do not have complete plumbing facilities. Alaska tops the charts with 6.3% of homes missing basic water functions. It is followed by New Mexico (1.8%), Arizona (1.1%) and Hawaii (1%).

Fresh Opinions

Most of us know to ask for references before hiring a professional service. A reference affords you the opportunity to talk to people who have used the service with success. In some cases, however, the references that are given may be outdated. If you want an up-todate assessment of the service, ask for references from jobs that were completed within the last month. That way you are assured of getting a fresh opinion of the service and quality of workmanship. •

I've been working the same job for twenty years and I'm still years away from retiring. My neighbor, on the other hand, started a lawn mowing business ten years ago and is planning to retire next year. Recently I bumped into him and asked how things were going. He told me that he's hired three more crews this year and things are busier than ever. I was absolutely stunned at his success. "I never knew there was so much business in mowing lawns," I said candidly. He laughed and replied, "There is when you give everybody free fertilizer!" (Thanks to Garry G.)

510 thank you notes Profuse thanks to the Magic Lantern for booking “The Sapphires” — a film that’d be on my “Top 15 Fave Films” list in ANY given film year; anyone who loves “The Commitments” and/ or “The Runaways” (reminded me more than once of “Whale Rider,” too, at times) will almost-certainly love this 2012 low-budget Australian gem, also. Searching online for its kick-ass awesome (1960s R&B/souloriented) soundtrack CD as I write this!!!!!! :D

518 raves Look up Kris Thomas, The Swon Bros., Sarah Simmons, Josiah Hawley, Judith Hill, Michelle Chamuel, Amber Carrington, Holly Tucker, Sasha Allen, Holly Tucker, Caroline Glaser and Garrett Gardner -- at YouTube, SoundCloud, itunes, etc, -- and THEN see if you still want to be cynical about NBC’s “The Voice”. Stellar singers, all... Still have tears in my eyes from some of the very poignant and powerful quotes from Muffy Davis that were featured in Karen Bossick’s front-page article about Davis last week. I’ve read A LOT of quotesfilled articles about Davis over the

years, but Bossick’s article REALLY captured the anger, fear, frustration, etc., surrounding Davis’ paralyzing skiing accident, and also Davis’ subsequent recovery FROM it. Davis — and that article about her — are truly extraordinary!! Season 10 of “So You Think You Can Dance” ( soooo did NOT disappoint on May 15 - with standouts including Jade Zuberi, Amy Yakima, Tyrone Cobham Jr, and Will “Sysko” Green -- the latter of whom at one point dance-serenaded Mary Murphy while she was right there on stage next to Green (not quite sure how much of it was a dance sequence vs. how much of it was about Green happily worshiping the black suede, stiletto, thigh-high boots Murphy was wearing -- but OMG was it HHHH-OT!!!
