Snowpack limits campground use By KAREN BOSSICK

T

hose who tie their camping season to Memorial Day weekend will have to think twice this year. There’s still three to four feet of snow atop Galena Summit. Redfish Lake has snow along the lake bank, although only patches of snow on the flats. And even the Harriman Trail can still be skied in some spots due to lingering snow. Recreationists planning on visiting the Sawtooth National Forest over the Memorial Day weekend will find that there are a limited number of campgrounds available for the holiday, according to SNF Public Affairs Officer Julie Thomas. Due to the lingering snowpack, many roads and trails will be also closed. Visitors to the Sawtooth National Forest are encouraged to bring their own drinking water and be prepared to haul their trash back home. Most of the Forest roads and trails, including Baker Creek Road, remain snow covered, wet and soft. Visitors are asked to avoid driving or riding on muddy roads and trails to avoid damaging the running surface. Even the road into Boundary Creek—the access for Middle Fork of the Salmon River rafters—still sports a couple of feet of snow. The following is a summary of major recreation areas.

Minidoka Ranger District South Hills: Schipper and Steer Basin campgrounds are open depending on water levels in Rock Creek. All dispersed sites in lower Rock Creek Canyon are closed due to flooding; Bear Gulch Campground is open; Porcupine Springs, Diamondfield Jack, Pettit, and Upper and Lower Penstemon are not open due to snow and wet conditions; significant snow remains at higher elevations and on northern slopes; roads are snow-covered and muddy.  Sublett: Sublett Campground is open – no fees or water; Mill Flat is open – no fees or water Raft River (Northern Utah): Clear Creek Campground and dispersed campground sites upstream from Clear Creek are open.  No fees, no water. One Mile Summit is not open, and trails remain closed. Albion: All developed campgrounds and trailheads are closed due to large snowdrifts. The road to the top of Mt. Harrison is not open beyond the Pomerelle Ski Area. Current road and trail conditions can be obtained by calling the Minidoka Ranger District at 208-678-0430.

Ketchum Ranger District Boundary Campground is open: Full services are available at Boundary Campground and fees will be charged.

Ralph Harris painted wives and children into the mural to show the personal impact of the National Guard.

Harris adds life to Armory Photos & Story By KAREN BOSSICK

T

he paintbrush has proven mightier than the sword for Ralph Harris. Over the years he has created 21 paintings which are on permanent display at the Pentagon, Air Force Academy, Air Force Museum and Air and Space Museum Detail, painting in details that make his paintings as educational as they are beautiful. Now he has yet another mural to his credit—one depicting the evolution of the citizen soldier in this country from the time of the American Revolution to the present-day National Guard The mural, which stretches across the west wall of the National Guard Armory in Hailey, will be unveiled during the Armory’s grand reopening ceremony Saturday. Harris is a fourth-generation Wood River Valley native in a family with a rich history of serving in the armed forces. For instance, his 91-year-old uncle Eusebio Arriaga, the first non-Austrian to teach skiing at Sun Valley, was an Air Force pilot in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Harris grew up illustrating deer and other wildlife around him, despite there being no art classes at school. After graduating from the Art Center School of Design in Los Angeles in 1964, he joined the Marine Corps Air Reserve as a photo-journalist and staff artist, painting corrections on a military diorama at Los Alamitos Naval Air Station. He counts a portrait of test pilot Chuck

Yeager among his favorites. “I had not a clue that my life would go that route. I thought I would be another Norman Rockwell-type painting for ‘Ladies Home Journal’ and living in a big city like New York that I detested. But the military gave me a chance to be an illustrator at a time when the illustrator’s art is fading away.” Upon returning to Sun Valley in 1967, Harris became a ski instructor and began illustrating covers and ski technique articles for “Ski” and “Skiing” magazines. He painted portraits of rodeo cowboys like Dean Oliver and Ty Murray for the Snake River Stampede. He painted 11 conservation stamps for the Idaho Fish and Game Department. And he created posters for Ketchum Wagon Days, Jackson Hole’s Old West Days Rendezvous and the Sawtooth National Recreation Area’s 20th, 25th and 30th anniversaries. When the centennial of the Lewis and Clark Expedition rolled around, he stepped outside of his paintings to don the pantaloons and army coat of Meriwether Lewis as he reenacted Lewis’ journey in a keelboat through Iowa and took Sun Valley audiences on a Corps of Discovery journey. “It all started when I went to paint a black powder stamp. I went back to the Smithsonian to research and learned that I had to know Lewis and Clark,” Harris recalled. “I became so enthralled I bought Lewis and Clark’s journals. From them I learned how much wildlife was here

before the Europeans moved West. Tens of thousands of bison, antelope--even grizzlies in North Dakota. Oh, what we’ve lost!” Harris outlined the picture of the mural on the Armory wall, using his wife Jacqui’s ’s grandfather as a model for the World War I soldier, with Ace bandages around his legs and a gas mask. Staff Sgt. Ulysses Mittelstadt, the non-commissioned officer in charge of the armory, and his family served as models for the modern-day soldier. Harris used Wood River High School basketball player Juliana Herrera, who plans to head to boot camp following graduation, depicting her with a National Guard basketball in her hand. He also included a representative of the 10th Mountain Division wearing skis and a hoodie since so many 10th Mountain Division soldiers, including his great granduncle Frank Unamuno, learned to ski at Sun Valley. He then invited community members, including cheerleaders and Wood River High School Art Academy students, to paint between the lines in paint-by-number fashion just as he had had onlookers help him with the mural on the side of the Blaine County Historical Museum. Former Hailey Chamber head Jim Spinelli, who has been watching the mural from its inception, said the mural is unlike anything found in any of the other Idaho armories. “I told the kids who are helping with the painting: That mural is going to be up there longer than all of us. So you’re having a part in making history,” he added. tws

llen Gillespie is determined to catch some of the candy that will be dropped over Hailey from a vintage airplane Thursday afternoon. “I’m going to try to catch one of the candy parachutes because my dad never did,” said the Ketchum woman. Gillespie’s father was a 10year-old when Col. Gail Halvorsen began dropping candy over Berlin during the Berlin Airlift. But, although her father saw Halvorsen drop the candy, he was never able to snag any. Nevertheless, Gillespie’s father was immortalized in a famous photograph of a German youth in knee-high stockings watching the airlift. And he told Ellen countless stories about “The Candy Bomber.” “That guy and all his buddies kept my dad and me from living under Communist rule,” said Gillespie, who spent a few childhood years in West Berlin. “My dad said he’s never been as hungry as he was during the whole blockade. But those guys brought in food and coal and helped everyone survive. It certainly made my dad think that Americans were the best.” Halvorsen, now 90, will be in the Wood River Valley Thursday through Monday as part of the festivities surrounding the rededication of the National Guard Armory at 311 E. Cedar St. in Hailey at noon Saturday. Halvorsen plans to attend the reenactment of his candy drops at 4 p.m. Thursday at the Wood River High School football field when a pilot flying a vintage tri-engine Grumman amphibious plane reenacts the drops during the Berlin Airlift of 1948 and 1949. He’ll talk about his humanitarian bombing during a free presentation at 6 p.m. Thursday night at The Community Library in Ketchum and sign copies of his book after the talk. On Saturday, he will be a featured guest at the grand reopening of the Hailey National Guard Armory. He’ll attend the Memorial Day ceremony at the Hailey Cemetery at 11 a.m. Monday. And he will speak at the Hailey Armory at 12:30 p.m., following the ceremony. Dr. Tom Crais, a Hailey dermatologist, is spearheading the reenactment to honor Halvorsen. Dr. Rich Sugden of Driggs, a flight surgeon in the class behind Crais at Pensacola Naval Air Station, will provide the plane. Hailey aviator Galen Hanselman, Atlantic Aviation of Sun Valley, Friedman Memorial Airport and the Blaine County School District are also assisting with the drop. Crais became friends with Halvorsen as a Navy and Army flight surgeon stationed in Berlin from 1970 to 1973 while Halvorsen was commander of Templehof. He reconnected with Halvorsen after visiting the Ber-

lin Airlift Memorial four years ago where he learned Halvorsen was still alive. “You would never have known he was a high-ranking commander. He was calm, humble, very welcoming,” Crais said. Halvorsen, a native of Garland, Utah, was among hundreds of American, English and French pilots who flew around the clock to supply Berliners with food, coal and medical supplies in defiance of the Soviet blockade which cut off the flow of food and supplies into the city. After sharing a couple of sticks of gum with a group of Berlin children, he promised to drop more candy when he flew back the next day. Soon, Berlin children began calling him “Uncle Wiggly Wings” for the way he wiggled his aircraft’s wings upon his approach to Berlin’s Templehof Central Airport to let them know it was a candy drop. As newspapers picked up the story, 20 tons of donated candy came in from six countries and Hershey and Wrigley candy companies donated candy bars, gum and Life Savers by the box car. “That part of history is fading, yet it’s an important story to be told,” said Ketchum resident Jim Pearre, a former Chicago newsman who was seven years old when the airlift started. “And Col. Halvorsen’s story is so inspiring. At 90, he may not be around too much longer to tell his story, so this is a precious opportunity.” Crais arranged for Halvorsen to meet with Gillespie’s father a couple of weeks ago in Berlin where Gillespie’s father co-chairs the American Academy of Berlin with Henry Kissinger. The Academy promotes dialogue between America and Germany through the arts and other means. “My father was thrilled to meet him,” said Gillespie. “He remembered how it had only been a few years prior to that that the Americans were dropping bombs on them. And then they began dropping candy on them. It made him a big fan of America.” tws

The museum on Main Street is open Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., with open hours also on Memorial Day and Labor Day. The museum opened with a quilt show on Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, 1996, after a two-year restoration effort supported by an outpouring of community funding and donations of time, labor and materials. Today, the museum is a well-regarded community treasureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it is small but packed with local history. A focus of the museum is on mining in the Broadford area, particularly the Minnie Moore/Queen of the Hills complex, and the people who worked in the mines. There are also Bellevue School photos and yearbooks, as well as classic historic photos of the city. The 1881 log jail (incarcerated bad guy included) sits behind the Old City Hall, and a log cabin, once a ranching employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lodging then a Bellevue familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home, has been moved to the site and is outfitted with late-1880s/ early-1900s furnishings.

Did You Know 8 Tips to Guide Your Home Search 1. Research before you look. Decide what features you most want to have in a home, what neighborhoods you prefer, and how much you’d be willing to spend each month for housing. 2. Be realistic. It’s OK to be picky, but don’t be unrealistic with your expectations. 3. Get your finances in order. Review your credit report and be sure you have enough money to cover your down payments and closing costs. 4. Don’t ask too many people for opinions. It will drive you crazy. Select one or two people to turn to if you feel you need a second opinion. 5. Decide your moving timeline. When is your lease up? Are you allowed to sublet? How tight is the rental market? 6.

When Redfish Technology was founded in Hailey in 1997, the goal was to find ideal careers for people in the technology sector, and to make an impact on the local community. The chief humanities officer, Heidi Clark Reeves, implements the corporate culture and philanthropic efforts at Redfish Technology, engaging the company and staff in support of local community events and non-profits. Redfish has given to many local causes through the years and it is a source of pride that the company has been able to do so and yet is always reaching to do more. Redfish Technology’s latest community endeavors include supporting Girls on the Run, the Winter Special Olympics, Sun Valley Adaptive Sports, Company of Fools, Sun Valley Alliance and more. Redfish also views recruiting as an opportunity to ‘give.’ The company’s passion for a green planet led it to specialize in alternative energy recruiting. And, Redfish offers a community rideshare bicycle, incentives for carpooling, and participates in the Idaho Green Power program. To see a list of the firm’s various philanthropic avenues, visit their website. Redfish Technology currently has local career opportunities available. Info: visit www.redfishtech.com.

The children’s offerings include one on kid’s yoga and another on turning passion into compassion to make an impact on the community.

ary Kay Foley believes it’s never too early to teach children about healing. She’ll prove it this weekend when she and retired school counselor Wanda Tierney teach children about Healing Touch at the Sun Valley Mountain Wellness Festival. The idea is to show children ways they can increase their awareness of energy and its healing effects on themselves and others. The two will show kids how to become more aware of their breathing and how to ground and calm themselves using a “tree meditation” in which the children will be encouraged to feel energy flowing down through their “roots.” It and deep breathing exercises will give kids options to help calm themselves when they feel anxious or like hitting someone, said Foley, a physical therapist who coordinates the Integrative therapies Program at St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center. They’ll also teach about chakras or energy centers within the bodies where the energy flows in. “I have a 6-year-old—Malia--so we used her as a target audience and she did really well,” said Foley. “We think it’s healthy to teach kids to tune into their own abilities to take care of themselves. Kids typically pick things up easier than adults.” The workshop is one of several presentations the Festival is

As part of the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation’s 2011 Health and Wellbeing Speaker Series, the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation invites the community to hear Dr. Zorba Paster, an internationally recognized physician, radio talk show host, and author, discuss the secrets of living a long, healthy life. In conjunction with the Sun Valley Wellness Festival, Dr. Zorba Paster will present “How to Live a Long, Sweet Life” 11: 30 a.m. Saturday, May 28 in the Continental Room at the Sun Valley Inn. During his lecture, Dr. Paster will also discuss his book, “The Longevity Code: Your Prescription for a Longer, Sweeter Life” which describes that achieving longevity is much more complex than merely maintaining a healthy diet and exercise. As part of his visit to Sun Valley, Dr. Paster will also hold a fundraiser to support the purchasing of equipment to help fight Tuberculosis around the world. The fundraiser, entitled The Reality of Tuberculosis in Tibetans with Dr. Zorba Paster, will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 26th at the Friesen Gallery in Ketchum. The fundraiser is open to the public. For more information, please contact Nicole Campbell at (208) 7278419.

Wellness Begins with Real Food

Redford’s new film, The Conspirator Jon rated this movie

he assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865 is an event that will live in infamy, certainly one that changed the course of American history. In Robert Redford’s new film, The Conspirator, we look at the aftermath of that day and the trial of Mrs. Surratt, the woman that owned the boarding house where the conspiracy to kill the President was hatched. Found guilty, she was the first woman executed in the United

States. At the heart of the film is the U.S. Constitution, the document that has stood the test of time and is the protector of the rights we are granted as citizens. Redford, a known liberal, wants us to look at how the Constitution can be bent in times of chaos, as we encountered after Lincoln’s death. Hoping to keep the peace, Secretary of War Edwin Stanton (played by Kevin Kline) is anxious to see the conspirators hang and creates a military kangaroo court to dole out fixed justice. Captured in the net is Mrs. Surratt who hangs on circumstantial evidence despite the efforts of James McAvoy, a Union hero, to defend her. The comparisons to 911 when civil liberties were under siege are obvious and pointed.

aise your long-held ideas and romantic notions up to the light of truth and see how they hold up. The astrological aspect will continue to challenge our faith and examine our beliefs through May 25. This will likely be an enlightening process, though not necessarily a comfortable one. Just remember that if one thought doesn’t empower you, you can always choose a different thought. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t always think of yourself as being an official leader, though you are doing much these days to influence those around you and shape the way they think and behave. You’ll be made aware of this and will have reason to pat yourself on the back for much of what you’ve done and to make a few adjustments, too. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will work hard to meet and exceed the expectations of others. Will others do the same for you? Whether they will or won’t has nothing to do with you. It has to do with their own character. So choose to deal with those who have proved in the past to have values and standards similar to yours. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your mind is a beehive, always buzzing and working to produce the sweet honey that makes the people around you so happy to know you. Then there are those who fear your process because they don’t understand it or they see you as a threat. This week

you’ll find a way to appease and neutralize those types, too. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Often the efforts a person makes to be attractive and fit in will have the opposite effect. What really “fits in” is a person who accepts and knows who he or she really is. That’s what you have going for you now. The happy result of your self-acceptance is that you waste little time on efforts that don’t matter. You just have fun. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your words may be fitting and make complete sense to you. However, because the very nature of language is abstract, the one you are trying to reach may come to an entirely different understanding of matters from the one you intended. Keep striving for mutually acceptable and beneficial terms. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Acting “as if” is an ability that is crucial to your success in the weeks to come. Since you’ve yet to experience a role first-hand, you’ll just have to pretend. This is a basic skill and an innate part of human behavior -- it’s how babies learn to talk. Lose your self-consciousness and dive into the improvisational spirit. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When people aren’t sure what’s appropriate, they ask you. Diplomacy is one of your superpowers. However, you should note that this is one of those rare weeks when being too polite is a danger. If you’re too predict-

Redford, despite creating a gorgeous period piece, has problems with pacing and the film can get bogged down. It is also an historical drama that will be attractive to Civil War buffs but may not reach a wider audience. One thing for sure is the luminescent performance from Robin Wright as Surratt. Always capable of a great work, Wright embodies the character in an Oscar-worthy performance. McAvoy is also more than capable as the man that goes against his beliefs to nobly save her life. The Constitution and the legal system guarantee rights for all but sometimes it can fall prey to overreaching by the executive branch in a time of crisis. The Conspirator can serve as a warning to future generations. tws

Avid weekly paper reader, Susan Littlefield, who has lived in the Valley for over 35 years, claims that laughter is the best medicine. She creates these scenarios in her husbands N-scale model railroad.

able, people get bored. So spice it up with a little bad, or at least unexpected, behavior. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It may feel like you have to change yourself in some way in order to fit in with an organization. Perhaps you’re forcing yourself into a set of values that you don’t really espouse to. There is a way to be yourself and still be of service to others. Through communication and experimentation, you will find it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re the quintessential travel companion. If it’s a long journey by car, you offer to share the cost of fuel. On shorter trips, you cover parking or cab fare as need be. And you’ll apply those same principles to the travel you embark on this week, though the journey may be more mental or spiritual than physical. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be stunningly impressed. For a glorious moment, you will forget yourself because you are so lost inside the story someone is telling you -- not an actual narrative, but a living message this person sends you with his or her presence, voice and being. In short, you will be enchanted. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The problem is that once you start to learn about something, you don’t want to stop until you know everything about it. Or maybe this is not such a problem after all, since this week the rest of the world seems to stop completely in order to let you study, explore and gain some expertise in this new area of interest. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You consistently do the job to the best of your ability. This is true even when you know the arrangement is only temporary, or when the job seems to be taking forever and the glamour has long since worn off. Those things don’t matter as much as doing your best. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: Long after others have given up, you will still be holding on. Your increased physical strength and stamina allow you to do this. You show heart at every juncture, which is why you attract quality people to you. A relationship gets closer and more romantic in May. A partnership will bring you financial luck in June. You’ll make a splash with your creativity in August, and you may even attract a benefactor. In October, a wonderful service will be provided for you free of charge or obligation. tws

f and when summer comes, many in the Valley will pick up their racquets and enjoy the game of tennis. With preparation and a good understanding of mechanics and equipment, most will avoid the condition of tennis elbow. However, 1 to 3 percent of the population is said to suffer from this diagnosis. Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, affects men and women equally with an increase of incidence after the age of 40. It is a common overuse syndrome affecting the extensor muscles of the forearm. Pain is on the outer side of the elbow and increases with repetitive wrist motion, gripping and rotation of the forearm. Causes from tennis are attributed to playing too long or frequently, poor stroke mechanics in the backhand swing, ill-fitting equipment, or improper string tension. To follow are some guidelines to avoid tennis elbow: • Use your professionals. Tennis pros and sports equipment sales reps are very helpful in helping your technique and equipment. • Be aware of body mechanics during the swing. As examples: • Avoid hitting the ball late, • Keep wrist neutral or in slight extension especially during the backswing, and, • Avoid wrist flexion after serving at impact of the ball.

Authorized Agents

• Avoid gripping the racquet too tightly. • Strengthen core muscles, shoulder stabilizers, rotator cuff muscles, and leg muscles to increase the power of your hit using your trunk, shoulders and lower body.

• Stretch and warm up before play and ice the elbow if painful after your game.

• Look at your equipment: try a mid-size lighter racquet with a proper grip size. • Be sure that the racquet is not strung too tight. Replace the string every six months.

• Replacing tennis balls on a regular basis decreases impactrelated stresses to the arm. Lateral epicondylitis can be brought on by other work related activities that involve a tight grasp or repetition and, in fact, studies show it is more prevalent due to occupations than in the sport of tennis. Setting up your workstation, evaluating what tools you use, and having an awareness of postural strength and alignment can help you avoid putting undo pressure on your wrist extensor muscles. A physician can help you diagnose this condition. Conventional treatment can include use of a counterforce brace, splinting, prescribing an anti-inflammatory agent or steroidal injection, or referral to an occupational or physical therapist. Rehabilitation will provide education regarding activity modifications, modalities, and specific stretching and strengthening exercises. Bottom line: prevention is the key. It is harder to get rid of tennis elbow than to avoid it. As we all know, our summers are too short and, by taking the abovementioned suggestions to heart, you can get the most out of this season. tws

Ebooks vs Real Books

Ebook readers seem to be everywhere you look now. Promoted as “green” technology, electronic books are touted as reducing waste, consumerism, and resource use. This wonderful tool offers a customized library at your fingertips (try putting a few hundred books into your carry-on luggage instead!). The ability to adjust font style and size is a boon to those with vision issues. Much paper will be saved for every title downloaded, but can we really factor the intangible, emotional aspects of reading a real book? On the flip side, printed books can be read without electrical recharging and can be reread repeatedly without additional resource investment. Paper versions are usually less costly than ebooks and used copies can be passed on (but download sharing is limited). Tight library budgets, and the substantial

discounts received from publishing houses, are discouraging institutions from moving to the full-price book downloads in a substantial way. Finally, all those e-readers will be eventually trashed (or, hopefully, recycled) and the new version purchased. The perception that downloading books is inherently more “green” also ignores the fact that purchasing locally keeps your dollars where they do you and your community the most good. tws

Hollie Roberts receives 2011 nursing award

The St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation and the Harvey Gray Family recently awarded Hollie Roberts the 2011 Carl A. Gray Memorial Award for Nursing Excellence Exemplified. Roberts is a nurse in the Medical/Surgical unit and was recognized during National Nurses’ Week for her exemplary nursing practice, calm demeanor and grace under pressure. As one colleague noted, “Not only am I a better nurse in her presence, I am at ease when she is on the floor, knowing that she is capable of making appropriate decisions.” Each year the entire hospital staff may nominate a nurse who exemplifies excellence in their nursing practice. The nursing staff then votes on the colleague whom they believe is most deserving of the recognition. The Gray family established the annual award in the Foundation to honor Carl A. Gray, who was an avid Sun Valley Ski Club member. Awards were also given for distinction in specific areas of nursing. These honorees included a tie for Transformational Leadership between Cheryl Kalenik and Karen Soracco; Laurie Williams for Exemplary Professional Practice; Susan DeChevrieux for Empirical Quality Outcomes; Cathie Royston for Knowledge, Innovations and Improvements; and Kerry Renner for Structural Empowerment.

Jigsaw starts local time bank

The local business non-profit, Jigsaw, has inaugurated a Time Bank in the Wood River Valley called the Wood River TimeExchange. The TimeExchange employs the simple idea that each community member has skills, talents and knowledge that can benefit others. As people share their abilities with others, community life is enriched. The Wood River TimeExchange enables members to forego using paper dollars in favor of “Time Dollars” as the means of exchanging services. When I paint your garage or cut your hair, I earn one Time Dollar for each hour worked. I electronically bank that Time Dollar in my TimeExchange account and, when the time is right, use my Time Dollars to “purchase” help from another TimeExchange member. The TimeExchange databank enables people who have never met to match their skills and talents with another’s needs and desires. Members connect via the website and make direct arrangements to share services. As the TimeExchange grows, it fills a gap in our traditional “buy-sell” system. The Wood River TimeExchange is open to anyone from Timmerman Hill to Stanley. The annual fee is $25. For further information, contact Jima Rice at jimasv@cox.net or telephone (7261848).

It runs on the hardcore cable sports channels, tarBali Szabo geting a certain mindsetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;basic Madison Avenue profiling. A guy is sitting in his camp chair, enjoying a summer evening. Birdsong shatters the silence. He gets up, walks over to his shiny new truck, gets a bow and arrow from his lockbox, takes aim and lets go. The bird lands with a thud. Whew! Peace and quiet at last! He sits down, self-satisfied, and a bullfrog starts up. The scene repeats. One happy camper. As the days pass, every morning gets noisier. My window is a proxy for my heartâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open. New birds are arriving (hummers!), the chatter grows, and the party is just getting started. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spring Break. The concentration of birdsong/calls in the early morning is so they can be better heard by potential suitors, mates and competitors. The still, quiet, windless pre-dawn is a perfect time to get the message out. Birds want to be heard. In cities, songbirds actually raise the pitch of their song to be heard above the white noise of traffic. The concept â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hardwiredâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is overused. All living things, sentient and otherwise, are adjusting every second. Even an amoeba makes choices. This neighborhoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rooster is the pileated woodpecker. Its rhythmic raps on resonant surfaces can be heard far and wide, and remind me of small arms fire, a chatter of a different sort. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pecking for grubs, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking for attention. Animals have to advertise in order to attract mates, the risks be damned. Caution is thrown to

the wind during mating seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;know what I mean? The mechanism of adjustment is communication. We live in a dense, interconnected, multidimensional web of communication channels, a world of instant messages, some known, most not. Based on their research, some academics have concluded that a human being can fall in love in one second. Our existence is completely saturated with channels of communication. Whatever happens in that one second is non-verbal. Nature invented broadband. We are all irradiated with data flow. The FCC annually auctions off bits of the

audio-visual spectrum. There are countless spectra. The biosphere is a communicating unit. With or without us, or any living creature, it is a self-maintaining entity, wherein all the elements are interrelated and co-dependent. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m out working in the Habitat, I can feel and hear the world talking. We often say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;if only this or that could talk!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not listening.

f you were looking for the storybook Habitat for Humanity family, it could be Aby and Jesse Rinella, who bought their home in Bellevue this month. This was the first project completed under the recently formed Blaine County Habitat affiliate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything came together at the time in our lives that we were in the worst possible financial position,â&#x20AC;? Jesse Rinella said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surreal,â&#x20AC;? his wife added. Four years ago, the Rinellas seemed to be one of the least likely families ever to need Habitatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help. Aby Rinella grew up in Hailey. She returned to her hometown to teach at Hailey Elementary School after graduating from Boise State University. Her husband had a construction job. They bought their 1,100square-foot â&#x20AC;&#x153;starterâ&#x20AC;? home in Bellevue, and prepared for the birth of their first child, Taitym. After Taitym was born, Aby Rinella switched to full-time work for Young Life, a nonprofit that works with teens. They expected to make home improvements and sell the house a few years later, making enough profit to buy a larger house and pay off student loans. That was the norm in 2007, they recalled. Two years later, the economic crisis hit. Jesse Rinella was laid off in December 2009. In early 2010 funding for Aby Rinellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job was insufficient and she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to leave the organization in debt, so she, too, was out of work. By the middle of 2010, they could no longer make house payments. The value of the home had dropped more than $100,000, meaning they could not even sell it for enough to pay off their debt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had never missed making a payment in our lives,â&#x20AC;? Aby Rinella said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had good credit. Our convictions are that you pay

Th e W e e k l y S u n â&#x20AC;˘

your bills. But Jesse had been out of work for more than a year, and we had gone through our savings.â&#x20AC;? The mortgage company agreed to accept a short sale, and let the Rinellas remain in the home in the interim. He found a job at the Blaine County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, but it still wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough to pay the mortgage and other bills. Aby Rinella was pregnant with their second child, Colson, now seven months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are strong believers in the Lord, and we prayed and prayed,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it was very difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time when you want to be preparing the nursery for the new baby, but we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know where we would be. Taitym kept asking me why people were coming to our home and talking about living in her room. That made it even harder,â&#x20AC;? she recalled. One day Realtor Cindy Ward called to say some people from Habitat for Humanity had seen the house and wanted to talk. The Rinellas didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why. They were even not aware that Habitat had worked locally. But they agreed to meet. One of the Habitat board members was Erin Buell, community outreach coordinator for St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Center for Community Health and the instructor for the birthing class the Rinellas had taken when Taitym was born. Her presence was a welcome surprise. Habitat had heard about their plight. The board members were impressed with their volunteer work with Young Life and Calvary Bible Church, his job in public service, and her previous job as a teacher. They suggested that Habitat buy the house, install a muchneeded new roof and new carpet in a bedroom, and sell the house back to the Rinellas at a price they could afford. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly

M ay 2 5 , 2 0 1 1

what happened, although it took almost a year to go through the process. Local Habitat members earlier built one other home in the Wood River Valley as a committee of the Twin Falls affiliate. ARCH Community Housing Trust helped in that project by holding a lease on the land, insuring that the home will permanently benefit a local family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hundreds of people in the local workforce commute daily from outside the county. A survey of those commuters indicates that more than 70 percent of them would prefer to live in Blaine County if decent affordable housing were available,â&#x20AC;? said John T. Flattery, chairman of the Blaine County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The challenge is to make it available on terms they can afford.â&#x20AC;? Habitat sells homes to families for no profit, with a no-interest mortgage based on ability to pay. Monthly payments are used to build additional homes. If the homeowner decides to sell the house, Habitat has the option to repurchase it for the initial purchase price. The buyer will receive equity from all of the mortgage payments made prior to the sale. Â This also allows Habitat to keep the home in its inventory. tws

Bob Wiederrick’s bike dwarfed the bikes being sold at this weekend’s Mountain Rides Bike Swap.

Wiederrick’s bike sculpture on display through October By KAREN BOSSICK

W

e always knew that biking was big in Sun Valley. But it assumed legendary proportions over the weekend as Bellevue artist and welder Bob Wiederrick set up a new colossal bike outside Sturtevants in Hailey. The bike sculpture, set up to advertise the weekend’s Mountain Rides Bike Swap, is destined for Ketchum Town Plaza where it will be part of Ketchum’s public art display through October. Wiederrick’s mammoth twowheeler is 7 feet tall and 11.5 feet long. It’s made of steel pipe and fabricated steel sandblasted with acid rust to sport a rust patina. It sports a motorcycle chain instead of a bike chain—the only piece Wiederrick didn’t make. There are no spokes on the

wheels. The wheels themselves were welded in such a way as to prompt viewers to wonder how they’re holding up the bike. The bike will be mounted on a multi-use pedestal that will hold Ketchum’s Christmas tree come December. This is Wiederrick’s first bona fide public art piece in the 22 years he’s lived here. “It was a real pleasure to be selected. When they asked for submissions, all I had done was the handlebar, frame and front fork. So the Ketchum Arts Committee took a chance on me,” he said. The work wasn’t pain-free, however. Wiederrick smashed his thumb when some metal fell on it while working on the project. “Over 20 years I’ve never lost a nail,” he said. “I guess there’s always a first time for everything.” tws

briefs Bike Counterculture Workshop Embrace the hot rod aesthetic and be inspired to personalize your basic two-wheeler in this one-night workshop offered by the Sun Valley Center for the Arts that emphasizes style ahead of function. Hailey artist and bike enthusiast Bruce Kremer will walk participants through various trends in bike design—who remembers Stingrays and muscle bikes?—and show examples of extreme bikes that take cues from outlaw and outlandish imagery. The workshop is part of a summer-long project on bicycles that includes visual arts exhibitions in Hailey and Ketchum, an interactive pedal-powered installation on The Center Lot in Ketchum and

a free outdoor screening of Breaking Away. For full details on Geared: The Culture of Bicycles, visit www.sunvalleycenter.org. The Bike Counterculture Workshop with Bruce Kremer meets Thursday, June 23, from 5 to 8 p.m. at The Center, Hailey. Cost is $25 members/$30 non-members. Students need to bring at least one 8-x-10-inch side view photograph of their bike on an 8.5-x-11inch sheet of paper. Registration deadline is Thursday, June 9. Register online at www.sunvalleycenter.org or call 726.9491 ex 10. Scholarships and teaching assistantships are available; if interested, inquire when registering.

To keep their college debt to a minimum, students today are using websites such as www.finaid. org to secure as many grants, scholarships, work study and federal loans as possible. Low-interest private student loans can help bridge additional expenses. These loans are available for students who attend participating colleges and graduate schools. The amount students are qualified to borrow is not based on need, but instead are based on credit. Students also have the option to add a cosigner, which may help them qualify for a loan and improve their interest rate. U.S. Bank offers two exclusive student loan options in which students can borrow up to the entire annual cost of attendance, less other financial aid received, at competitive fixed or variable interest rates. If students or their parents have equity built up in their home, home equity loans may also be a cost-effective option to pay for college.

A couple came in and asked if I would show them my listing for a very expensive house. I was so excited I told them to jump in the car and we'd go. Little did I know that their 140-pound BullMastiff had to tag along. "Charlie" had to like the house in order for them to buy. So we loaded in and took off. It seems Charlie liked it because the couple wanted to make an offer, but only after coming back next week with Charlie's older and larger brother, Max. This seems ridiculous, but the commission might just be worth it. Any ideas on how to impress a dog with a 2.8 million dollar home?

Cash: You know, many

people treat their pets like family, but this is the first time we've heard of a dog making a large investment decision. Carry: It kind of makes you wonder if their bank is Bark of America? Cash: One thing is for sure. This sale could be one of the most expensive doghouses ever sold.

Carry: I'm not sure there's any protocol for showing a house to a dog. After all, Charlie and Max are probably not impressed with Italian marble floors or hand-crafted stained glass. They'd probably be more excited with a fire hydrant on the front lawn! Cash: However, dogs do have a very keen sense of smell. As a real estate agent, you may know that people find a home more appealing when there is a pleasant aroma lingering in the air, such as a fresh baked apple pie or homemade bread. Carry: Imagine what the dogs would think if they walked in and smelled the aroma of a fresh pot roast in the oven.

Cash: Of course, if a few drippings dropped on the floor, I'm sure they wouldn't mind if it was accidentally left behind. Carry: The truth is that if your potential buyers are eccentric enough to let their dogs make the final decision, there probably isn't much you can do. After all, you don't know how they decide if Charlie or Max actually like the place. If Max lies down in front of the fireplace, is that a good sign or is he just bored? Cash: Your best bet is to simply accommodate the owners to the best of your ability. But pay attention. You never know when the dogs might give some good stock advice.

Most dogs like to sniff everything. And with just one whiff, your dog can take in a lot of information. That's because dogs have about 25 times more smell receptors, called chemoreceptors, than us humans. That allows them to sense odor concentrations 100 million times lower than we can. So when they sniff the sidewalk, they can tell if the neighbor's poodle has been by or if someone dropped a donut on their morning stroll. That's probably also how they tell when the mailman is coming.

Trust Fund

We've all heard of people who inherit millions from their heirs. However, believe it or not, at least 16 states now allow owners to establish trust funds for their pets and pass on an inheritance for their care. In 1993 tobacco heiress, Doris Duke, left $100,000 to her dog Rodeo. It's been reported that actress Betty White will be leaving $5 million of her estate to her pets. Even Oprah Winfrey is believed to have added her dogs to her will so they may continue living in the lap of luxury. Nowadays, it seems a dog's life isn't so bad. â&#x20AC;˘

As a real estate agent, you never know what might come up when you show a house. Last weekend I was showing an older home to a couple. After touring the upper floors, we ventured into the basement for a final look. As we walked around the rather vacant space, I told the couple I had to disclose that the basement sometimes floods during a heavy rain. "I'm guessing like a swimming pool," the gentleman commented. "Why would you say that," I asked him. Pointing to the far end of the room, he replied, "They wrote on the wall, 'Deep End'!"
