Knori Perseveres Local Student, jesse knori, chooses living life STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

I Sun Valley Resort built some gnarly trails on Bald Mountain last year for the 2011 and 2012 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Cross-Country National Championships. Now it aims to build a network of trails on Bald Mountain that will be geared toward all abilities.

Mountain Bike Trails on Baldy STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


un Valley wants to create “a summer ski season” by creating a world-class mountain bike playground on Bald Mountain. The world’s first destination ski resort believes it can convert skiers to mountain bikers as it becomes a destination mountain bike resort with the only dedicated machine-built trail network in the United States, said Julian Tyo, a member of the Sun Valley trail crew that built the course for the 2011 and 2012 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Cross-Country National Championships on Bald Mountain. “We want to create new mountain bikers by creating safe, accessible trails that will keep users coming back,” he said. The resort unveiled proposals last week for seven new multi-ability mountain bike trails and two remodeled trails before a hundred bike enthusiasts crowded into River Run Lodge. Tyo said the resort wants to create a ski season for summer with a “robust” offering of trails of all abilities that would complement the 435 miles of existing mountain biking trails south of Galena. String a few of the proposed trails together and you’ll have a 9.6-mile downhill flow trail, which would be the longest in the United States, he said. Not too many places could even come close to that, given their terrain, he added. Without question, the new trails would also give the Sun Valley area what it needs to achieve a gold-level ranking under the new tiered recognition system drawn up by IMBA, the International Mountain Bicycling Association, he said. Right now the area would likely merit a silver. The new bicycle trails would be located primarily on the River Run side of Bald Mountain and would be accessible via Sun Valley’s gondola and Christmas chairlift. Seven percent would be geared toward advanced riders, 58 percent toward intermediate and 35 percent toward novice. Even the novice trails would be suitable for intermediate and advanced riders, Tyo said: “We might have three rollers and the beginner would roll over all three, while the intermediate rider would roll over two and jump the third. The advanced

f she was feeling any pain, Jesse Knori didn’t show it as she climbed onto the podium at Soldier Hollow to claim her silver medal in the Junior Nationals J1 Girls Sprint. That—and a sixth-place finish in the 10k freestyle in March—was nothing short of a miracle for a young woman who sometimes wakes up frozen to her bed, unable to lift her neck or even feel her spine. Knori was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue, at age 12. And, despite medication and a modified diet, her joints sometimes swell to the size of grapefruits. At other times, they’ve become so inflamed she can’t walk upstairs or open jars. And, often, her joints ache so bad she can’t double pole, forcing her to ski with one arm in a sling. “At first, it was just in my neck and knees, which felt as if someone was jabbing 20 needles in my bones. Then it spread to my ankles and elbows. Now, it’s in my spine,” said Knori, who was given the Dave Quinn Award for most inspiration skier by Junior Nationals at the end of the ski season. “What I’m doing with my skiing may seem kind of masochistic. But I love it because I’m out in beautiful country with kids that are so motivated and coaches who want me to achieve.” Wanting to take her skiing up a notch, the Jackson, Wyo., native moved to Sun Valley last summer, enrolling in the new Sun Valley Ski Academy and taking up residence in the Academy’s new dorm at the foot of Baldy. “I had heard such good things about Sun Valley’s head coach Rick Kapala from my Nordic coach. And Jackson had no girls for me to train with at the level I needed to. But I knew the Sun Valley team had a real strong girls’ team—girls like Sloan Storey, Morgan Atkinson, Maranda Stopol, Maggie Williams, Margaret Pope…” Like Morgan Arritola—a Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation alum who went on to compete in the Olympics—Knori did not start cross-country skiing until high school. When she did take it up in her freshman year, she fell frequently, was totally exhausted and never placed above 30th in competition. But she was hooked. She quit the swim team and joined the Jackson Ski Club her sophomore year, competing for track time with the moose that frequented the Nordic tracks. Relocating to Sun Valley was hard

for her as it took her away from her family. But, she says, it got her out of her niche as she bunked with kids from China and Brazil. “I had to get used to a different schedule, with dinner at 6:30 p.m. and study hall from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. And I had to learn to be considerate of my roommates’ needs—it was like living with nine little siblings instead of one,” she said. It was worth it, however, as her Community School teachers assisted her in every way possible to allow her to pursue competitive skiing at a higher level. “The teachers here want to help you achieve your goals— they’re so understanding of your absences,” she said. “When I qualified for Nationals at home, my teachers thought I shouldn’t go because it meant missing so many classes. It hurt me that they couldn’t be happy for me.” Knori says she also relished skiing under Kapala’s tutelage. “Rick is such a great coach to kids. He understands what he needs to do to help them compete at their highest level. He’s the most motivational speaker I’ve ever heard—he knows what you need to hear. At Soldier Hollow he gave each of us a notecard with one word that we needed to focus on. My word was ‘graceful,’ alluding to the fact that I had to finesse things… use as smooth a technique as possible. “In finals I was in sixth place and I heard him yell, ‘C’mon Jesse!’ My adrenalin took charge and I found energy I didn’t think I had. I told myself, ‘I think I can do it,’ and I pushed and got second.” After graduation this coming Sunday, Knori plans to stay in Sun Valley for a year to train with the Ski Education Foundation’s Gold Team to see just how far her skiing can take her. Afterwards, she says, she will likely head to the University of New Hampshire to study environmental science and environmental architecture. Kapala says Knori has every opportunity to do well at the next level. “She’s already one of the best girls in the country. We were lucky enough to have her come train here despite her debilitating joint problems,” he said. “She’s gotta be one of the most positive people I’ve been around. To be good at a high level of athletes, you have to be

over giving up to pain.

Jesse Knori says she hopes she can inspire youngsters with her tale of perseverance.


someone who says, ‘Today I GET to be a cross-country skier.’ Jesse’s attitude is infectious and the real difference is her determination. She’s able to say, ‘I can’t run or lift weights. But this is what I can do. I can do the rowing machine or spinning.’ ” For her senior project, Knori spent a month in Boise working with a rheumatologist to create a conference for kids with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and organizing a support group for their parents. But she can’t wait to get back into training. “I figure I’m healthier doing what I love to do than I’d be sitting around,” she said. “I’m probably taking it too far. But it’s what I want to do.” tws

Bowe Bergdahl Made a Lions Member STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


merica’s only POW—Hailey’s Bowe Bergdahl—is believed to be held near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. But that didn’t prevent the 26-year-old Army sergeant from becoming the ninth member of the Wood River Lions Club last week. Bergdahl, who was taken captive three years ago this June, was inducted into the local chapter during the Southern Idaho Lions Clubs’ annual meeting at Sun Valley Resort. “We took up a collection to pay for his dues for the next 10 years,” said Walt Cochran, of Richfield. The Lions hope to include the story in the Lions’ magazine, which goes to 1.3 million members in 207 countries. That will bring his story to many more people, hopefully helping to step up the pressure to obtain his release, Cochran said. Bergdahl’s father Bob and mother Jani took part in a Rolling Thunder rally in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. Bob Bergdahl promised his son he would not be forgotten during the motorcyclists’ rally at

the National Mall. “You will come home. We will not leave you behind,” he said. The Obama administration has been talking about exchanging five Taliban prisoners at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, for Bergdahl. Though it has long had just eight members, the Wood River Lions Club does a lot, Cochran said. It hosts blind campers for three days of ice skating, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and other activities at the 4-H camp north of Ketchum every winter. The club raises moneys for that through its food booth at Hailey’s Fourth of July and Labor Day rodeos. It also provides eye screenings for a thousand first-, third- and fifth-graders each year in schools in Sun Valley, Ketchum, Hailey, Bellevue, Carey, Richfield, Dietrich and Shoshone. Recently, the Wood River Lions Club went in with the Jerome, Gooding and Wendell clubs to buy a new $8,500 eye screening machine using donations collected from Sun Valley Company, Budweiser, Glanbia Cheese, Smith Optics, Power Engineers and Marketron.

Jani Bergdahl, passing out stickers designed to keep her son’s capture in the public consciousness, has kept a smile on her face and a prayer in her heart throughout this ordeal.

The club meets at noon the first and third Wednesdays of

briefs Girl Scout Troop 106 Distribute Bicycles to Locals via their Planet Ride efforts Local Girl Scout Troop 106 plans to give out bicycles Sunday in an effort to encourage the community to bike more and drive less. The girls started Planet Ride after Junior Girl Scout Mia Russo was shocked by how bad the pollution is during a vacation to California. The girls worked with their leaders and AmeriCorps volunteers to create a project outline and set their goals as part of their Bronze Award, a leadership adventure and the highest honor a Girl Scout Junior can achieve. They asked for donations of used bikes from the community and then partnered with local bike shops to repair and tune them so that they can be distributed to deserving locals in need of a good set of wheels. Applications to receive a bicycle are available at Formula Sports, Backwoods Mountain Sports, Sun Summit and Sturtos in Ketchum. The bikes will be distributed from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the lower soccer field at Atkinson Park. A limited number of bikes are available.

rider could jump all three.” Most of the trails would be 72 inches wide offering riders a variety of line choices. There would also be rest areas, observation points and interpretive stations. The easier trails would be on top of the mountain, allowing novice riders to take the gondola down if they don’t have the skills to ride the more advanced trails on the lower half of the mountain. The upper mountain offers 1,330 vertical feet and the lower mountain 1,930 vertical feet. Both offer a wide variety of terrain. The current 2.1-mile Lower River Run Trail would be remodeled to make it a bicycle-only trail, and a new 1.2-mile trail for hikers and climbing bicyclists would be built for hikers and uphill bicyclists heading to the Roundhouse. The Broadway Trail along the bowls would also be remodeled to make it more suitable for hikers and uphill bicyclists. A 6- to 8-foot-wide flyover bridge connecting two high points would be built over the popular 5.1-mile Bald Mountain Trail to avoid conflicts between bicyclists and hikers. The trails, which will be patrolled, are designed to have minimal impact on vegetation and winter recreation. Viewers will not be able to see them from below, said Tyo. “We didn’t want to put these trails just down ski runs. And we kept away from ski guns,” he added. “Many resorts have learned the hard way that building the best mountain biking park does not mean killing your guests by simply following the fall line.” Analysts for Gravity Logic, whose clients include Whistler, Winter Park, Jackson, Aspen, Steamboat and Stevens Pass ski areas, analyzed Bald Mountain in 2010 and confirmed that the Sun Valley area has a strong mountain bike community averaging between 45 and 50 years old that hails from Southern Idaho, Utah and Washington. Local mountain bikers are younger. Sun Valley has the lifts, terrain and other facilities to attract even more, including a younger, less exclusive clientele, reported the analysts. “We have amazing dirt, which is key for construction and will require minimal maintenance versus what you find elsewhere,” Tyo said. Gravity Logic also praised Bald Mountain’s Cold Springs and Warm Springs trails, which would remain open, Tyo said. “Seventeen miles of lift-assisted engineered flow trail from top to bottom of Bald Mountain—I think the proposal is fantastic,” said Tony Parkhill of Ketchum. “It will augment the miles of world-class single track already here.” Sun Valley hopes to begin work on the trails with the help of IMBA Trail Solutions specialists Randy Spangler and Chris Leman in the summer of 2013. Spangler and Leman worked on the new Punchline flow trail in the Croy Canyon trail network and Forbidden Fruit in Adams Gulch The Forest Service will then conduct an environmental study

Here’s a synopsis of the proposed new trails and remodeled trails: 2-mile hike and uphill bike trail on Lower River Run. This one would be 48 inches wide. This would be a more direct route to Roundhouse replacing the current Lower River Run Trail for hikers. 2.1-mile remodel of the existing Lower River Run Trail, converting every switchback to a banked turn. 3.7-mile new trail for intermediates that would go from Roundhouse to 42nd Street through Olympic Ridge area. 3.9-mile new easy trail from Lookout to Roundhouse via Upper Warm Springs, crossing Upper Limelight, Upper College and heading through Central Park. A flyover bridge would allow bicyclists to cross the Bald Mountain Trail without interacting with hikers before crossing Rock Garden to Christmas Lane. 1.4-mile new advanced trail from Roundhouse to 42nd Street accessing parts of Holiday, Canyon and Exhibition ski runs. 2.1-mile intermediate trail from Lookout to Roundhouse involving a re-do of the Broadway trail just below the tree line on the bowls. 2.1-mile new easy trail from Lookout Restaurant to Roundhouse with a top that mimics the Punchline trail in Croy Canyon and a bottom that resembles Forbidden Fruit in Adams Gulch. It crosses I-80 just above Flying Squirrel. .76-mile new intermediate trail from Roundhouse slope to Olympic Lane. 2-mile easy trail from Lookout Restaurant to Broadway would be a hiking and uphill-only bicycle route involving a re-do of the Old Bowl Lane.


You can see Sun Valley Resort’s proposal at the Ketchum Ranger District on Sun Valley Road. Sun Valley Resort also hopes to post the proposal online at, said Julian Tyo. Comments may be directed to the Sun Valley Mountain Department at P.O. Box 10, Sun Valley, ID 83353, or Sun Valley’s mountain manager Peter Stearns said the resort is asking the public to comment on the proposals within the next 30 days. The resort will tweak the plan, if necessary, before submitting it to the Ketchum Ranger District and Bureau of Land Management.


This summer, Sun Valley Resort and the Ketchum Ranger District hope to remove some timber on Upper Warm Springs and on the skier’s left side of Upper College to reduce fire hazards, improve forest health and offer more glade skiing, said Kurt Nelson, district ranger for the Ketchum Ranger District. The glades were specified in Sun Valley’s 2007 Master Plan. A little work was done last summer, in areas like Olympic, enabling Sun Valley to carve out some adventure trails for young skiers. Additional work would likely be done to stands where the new mountain bike trails are proposed if they’re approved, said Joe Miczulski, the Ketchum Ranger District’s recreation specialist. Miczulski said the MCH pellets and pheromone packets nailed to Baldy’s trees appear to have tricked beetles into staying away from the mountain. A forest health specialist determined that the beetle population has subsided and the trees that weren’t hit in the initial round are doing well. tws

WRHS Debaters are Going to Nationals BY JONATHAN KANE


ood River High School debaters Gus Kimball, Wyatt Caccia and Colton Bailey will be going to nationals June 9-15 in Indianapolis, Indiana. This follows an appearance last year. For teacher Susan Worst, who is now in her second year as debate teacher, she is two for two. Although she has a long way to go to catch UCLA’s legendary John Wooden, the feat is very impressive. For sophomore Caccia, this will be his second appearance after faring admirably against four-year debaters last year as a freshman. “I’m really excited this year,” he said. “I had a lot of fun last year but I didn’t do as well as I had hoped. This year I think I’ll do a lot better.” For Bailey, “It hasn’t really hit me yet but that will really be different for me when I get on the plane to go there. I’m pretty stoked. I never dreamed anything like this would happen.” Before they go, though, there is the question of raising the funds for the three students and teacher to travel and pay for accommodations. To this end, they have applied to the Blaine

County Education Foundation for a $500 grant to go toward the approximately $900 each that the trip will cost. They have also had bake sales and other events but are reaching out to the community for help. For those wishing to help, you can send contributions to the Wood River High School Debate Team National Tournament. The tournament is sponsored by the National Forensic Speech Arts League and, according to Worst, it is the largest academic competition in the world. Students gain entry to the tournament after competing in district tournaments. In Idaho, there are two districts and about 45 competing teams. This year Caccia was undefeated and Kimball and Bailey finished second as a team and gained entry to the tournament. Caccia was seven for seven in his debates and Kimball/Bailey lost one round. There are two types of debate in a tournament – Lincoln-Douglas, named after the legendary debates of the 1858 Illinois Senate race, and Public Forum. In Lincoln-Douglas, the debater competes alone, and in Public Forum, the debaters work as

a team. According to Worst, Lincoln-Douglas, which Caccia competes in, “is a values debate arguing a philosophical question.” Worst added, “It can be something like animal rights. What it most reminds me of is the late night discussions you used to have in college. This year’s question will be whether the government has the obligation to lessen the gap between rich and poor.” For Caccia, there will be six rounds and he will have to debate both sides of the argument. “The one-on-one aspect of it really appealed to me. I don’t really like relying on other people, or them on me. One on one really tells you where you stand, which is not the same in team sports. He added, “It was a terrific feeling to go undefeated, especially because you care so much about it and have worked so hard. I’ve taken so much out of debate, like critical thinking, public speaking, research persuasion skills and the ability to think on your feet. I love that it encompasses a broad range of subjects which changes every two months and gives you something new to challenge you.” The other debate, which

Kimball and Bailey will compete in, is called Public Forum, which examines a topic currently in the news and changes every month. For this year’s nationals the topic will be whether or not the stand-your-ground laws are a legitimate expansion of the doctrine of self-defense. Worst says that the final round will be held in a ballroom in front of 1,000

people. In the districts, Kimball and Bailey won five of six rounds to qualify. “I wouldn’t be here without Gus,” said Bailey. “It’s such a rush being in front of so many people and having them listen to you.” One thing is for sure—whether they win or lose, they will do the Valley proud.

Sun Worship - It’s Natural

“Every winter, when the great sun has turned his face away, the earth goes down into a vale of grief‌â€? —Charles Kingley STORY & PHOTO BY BALI SZABO


his Memorial Day was the first of a series of weekends when Americans’ loyalty was divided between the mountains and the waters—rivers, lakes, reservoirs, a good swimming hole, and the sea. With our dismal, cold, overcast weekend (Baldy had snow!), the beach was the place to be. Friday’s USA Today recommended Coeur d’Alene, Arizona’s Lake Havasu, Montana’s Whitefish Lake and Colorado’s Great Sand Dunes National Park. Arizona wins. If you wanted to bake like a spud, the rivers and the Great Lakes of the heartland was the place to be, and has been for weeks, with temperatures 10 to 15 degrees above normal—in the high 90s. It’s natural to yearn for the sun, more daylight and warm temperatures after five months of winter. Warnings abound about the dangers of our stripped-down, exposed rediscovery of nature. USA Today had a sidebar about the ABC’s of sun safety; i.e., UVA, UVB and UVC. St. Luke’s had a seminar last Thursday on the sun’s effects on skin. Throw in prolonged exposure’s relationship to eye cataracts, and we have succeeded in turning sunlight into a biological terrorist. The much larger topic and reality is the wide-ranging beneficial effects of sunlight, and

light in general. Light in itself is therapeutic. The more light you get, the better you feel. The ancients discovered this thousands of years ago, and exposure to the sun was widely employed as therapy, and it sometimes worked, which can’t be said of another ancient remedy, bloodletting. The psychological benefits were noted as well. The sun Wish was said to be the antidote Cod to ‘lethargy and gloom’ (depression). Scandinavian ennui and angst, so characterized by Edward Munch’s ‘The Scream,’ was worsened, or caused, by the drastic alterations of seasonal light and dark, of sorrow and joy. We now have a name for the psychological and physical effects of seasonal variations—Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Its discovery and investigation is credited to the father of modern psychiatry, the French doctor Phillipe Pinel, who practiced in the late 18th century. From the fall of Rome into modern times, sun therapy and sun bathing declined in popularity when Christian theology declared sybaritic sun worship as a ‘pagan practice.’ American doctor Frederick Cook, the first man to reach the geographical North Pole, observed the manic/depressive fluctuations of light and mood among sailors and the indigenous population of Greenland. Darkness brought depressed mood, fatigue, loss of energy and of sexual desire. In our era, light therapy has not fared well, despite support from the National Institutes of Health. Because it’s not drug-

based, there’s little profit in it. There’s no insurance reimbursement for bright light treatment. The medical profession and the biological psychiatry establishment see it as anecdotal, a placebo effect, too California, too hippy-dippy. People suffering from SAD (which is not as acute as clinical depression) tire easily, crave carbohydrates, gain weight and show sadness. Americans are suffering from an epidemic of sleeplessness and daytime drowsiness. Night workers and, ironically, medical professionals, are the hardest hit. Our sleeplessness is linked to increased risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. We spend less and time outdoors. In an office, we get 30 times less light than in daylight and 200 times less than on a sunny beach. Lancet reports that, in a generation, the incidence of myopia in Asian schoolchildren has jumped from 20 to 80 percent. Between school and home, they spend too much time inside. Well, I’m going gardening! tws

4-H’s First 100 Years


his year marks 100 years of 4-H in Idaho. Blaine County’s 4-H history did not begin until 1917, when J.H Finely was hired as county agent. County agents, as they were called, began 4-H as part of their work. A county agent was expected to know everything— from animal and plant science to youth development. As people began leaving farms to get steady employment in larger areas, the need for improved farming methods was required to replace the manpower and feed the people now living in urban areas. The government developed land grant universities to conduct research that would be used to educate the agricultural communities. The Cooperative Extension System was created to deliver the information to rural areas through county agents. Youth were excited to learn new things and in turn inform their parents. Understanding the dynamics of remote areas, reluctant farmers, and willing youth, county agents began 4-H club work. Irrigation, erosion control and mechanization were all new ideas that would improve crop yields. Soon, preserving foods with modern electricity was important and, in turn, 4-H became involved in consumer science. Sewing, cooking, plant and animal science and agronomy kept local county agents busy. Today, 4-H continues to educate youth with up-to-date technology and the agent carries the title of extension educator, with additional staff to work with youth development. Lauren Hunter is the face of modern extension work in Blaine County and knows cows, cooking, kids and technology in addition to tws bugs, soils and more.

hat’s a good question! Recycled materials that are sold go to brokers who sell them to whoever they want/can. We recently had someone call the ERC to ask if computers “got sent to China.â€? The answer is‌ no, or maybe. Blaine County and Southern Idaho Solid Waste work with different brokers for different materials and those brokers do whatever will make the most sense for them financially. Computers are broken tws down to their individual parts and then sold off, so part of your computer could go somewhere else in the world. The county does its best to try and find someone who can use all of our recyclables as nearby as possible, though. Other products are also in the news for being shipped to China (or elsewhere in the world). Plastics, for example, often are sent overseas by ship. It sounds like an awful waste, but again things aren’t so simple. Due to imports from China outpacing exports to China from the U.S., there is an argument to be made that an empty ship returning to China would be an even larger waste. The jury is still out. Glass is currently not recycled, but is diverted from the waste stream to avoid transportation and landfill costs.

Albertsons to Carry More Organics STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

This year’s ceremony was dedicated in honor of Carl Hoskins. courtesy pHOTO: marcella ascuena

Hailey Memorial Day


he Hailey Memorial Day ceremony that took place on Monday, May 28, 2012, was attended by approximately 515 people and included over 30 various military personnel including a full Honor Guard from the Mountain Home Air Force Base, wreath bearers from the U.S. Navy-NOSC Boise, and members of the USMC Charlie Co., 4th Tank Bn. Locals SrA Nathan Schiers and SSG Ulysses Mittelstadt were readers. CPT Douglas Uphoff returned to be the events emcee and Chief Don Curry of the NOSC Boise was the guest speaker. It was the ninth annual ceremony in Hailey, and can easily be said that it was the most honorable and spectacular ceremony yet. Those in attendance enjoyed various musical selections including the “National Anthem” sung by A1C Camron Wheeler from the Mountain Home Air Force Base Honor Guard. Miss Leah Shaw of the Boise Highlanders performed two beautiful songs on the bagpipes. The weather was sunny and beautiful and the breeze blowing created a phenomenal sea of red, white, and blue as 440 flags waved gently across the cemetery. A community came together and properly honored those who’ve given their all. They also honored the true meaning of Memorial Day.


ati Meyer has been hounding Albertsons managers every day to carry more organic items. On Wednesday, Albertsons rewarded Meyer by letting her cut the ribbon for a newly remodeled store that carries 137 new organic items in the produce section, 30 new organic items in the meat department and more organic items in the dairy section. Meyer grimaced looking out at the parking lot draped in red ribbon as she and John Bolliger struggled to cut the ribbon with a two-foot-long scissors. Then, her face metamorphosed into an exclamation point as the ribbon fell. “I threatened to go to Atkinsons’ because they had so many organics,” she said. “Now they have a marvelous selection of organics. They have really good organic yogurt, and they guarantee their products—I’ve brought stuff back and they’ve reimbursed me or given me another item.” The remodeled store features new shiny colored concrete floors, a walk-in beer cooler with expanded selections, an expanded salad bar and a new hot case in the deli. “This is a big deal for us,” said store director Donnie Green, noting that the remodel team worked at night so the store could stay open during the remodel. Green walked through the store pointing out a dairy case that’s grown by 20 feet, LED lighting designed to save energy and new doors on Aisle 8 that Albertsons projects will save $20,000 a year in energy costs.

Bakery Director Shanon Fain and cake decorator Martha Hollenhorst show off the celebratory cake they made of pull-away cupcakes.

“It’s a lot more inviting and upscale than it used to be,” he said. The store also features an expanded cake section. Albertsons keeps 85 cakes on display daily, including frozen cakes designed for picnickers who want to take a cake to the lake without worrying about the frosting melting before they’re ready to eat it. Bakery manager Shanon Fain said the bakery now offers bakeat-home cookie dough for those who want to pamper themselves with one or two freshly baked cookies at night. And it’s expanding its selection of gluten-free cakes. The bakery gets 50 special orders a week, she said. Fairy cakes top the list of cakes for young ones celebrating a birthday. The dinosaur cakes, which feature a motion-activated dinosaur toy, are popular with

Store director Donnie Green gives a thumbs-up to the revamped produce section, which includes small tables to display fruits and vegetables.

boys. And the Barbie cakes are the cakes of choice at bachelor parties. Albertsons traditionally remodels its stores every 10 years, Green said. Green said he and his staff took care not to change the selections in any of the aisles. But they did open the aisles up a big since they were so tight. The City of Hailey restricted the size of the store to 35,700 square feet—well under the 58,000-square-foot markets Albertsons was building when it built the Hailey market about 10 years ago. Albertsons had to do some hoop jumping to get the store into Hailey, even as it closed 165 stores across the country due to competition from Walmart and other stores. Supermarket architects eventually won over the Hailey Planning and Zoning

Ketchum Memorial Day Service and Fly Over STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


early 125 people—many of them dressed in red, white and blue—leapt to their feet, turning their eyes to the sky Monday morning as A-10 Thunderbolts from the Idaho Air National Guard thundered across the sky, their dark bodies standing out against the freshly fallen snow on the mountain tops. The morning had dawned bright and clear for the annual Memorial Day Service in the Ketchum Cemetery following a couple days of snow and rain. Tiny flags fluttered above more than a hundred gravesites of veterans in the Ketchum Cemetery and an empty seat draped with a black MIA/POW flag reminded attendees of their own Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was captured nearly three years ago in Afghanistan. “Hear our prayer for those who put the welfare of others ahead of their own,” said Barbara Corwin, chaplain for the David Ketchum Post American Legion, one of Idaho’s largest American Legion chapters. “Help us to

shape a world where we will lay down the arms of war.” Lt. Col. Dan Crawford, wing chaplain at Mountain Home Air Force Base, mentioned how his base had recently lost a pilot in Asia. For people like the young widow, he noted, “Memorial Day is every day. You can’t get it out of their minds.” A 21-gun salute and “Taps” was followed with a laying of a wreath on a cenotaph and an original adaptation of “God Bless America” by R.L. Rowsey’s A Few Good Men. Afterwards, attendees spilled out onto the cemetery lawn to visit the decorated graves of veterans like A.H. Dollarhide, who fought in the Mexican Wars, and Jack Hemingway, who convinced his superior officer that the flyfishing rod that he strapped to his leg when parachuting behind enemy lines was a cleverly designed radio antenna. “As we go on our way, let us reflect that life is short… so be swift to love and make haste to be kind,” said Post Commander William Cassell. tws

Commission with drawings reflecting Hailey’s historic mining and depot heritage. The supermarket features an overhanging roof, small windows and a combination of brick and olive green wood siding—all unusual for a grocery store but a concession to P&Z planners who feared the traditional concrete block would look ugly and dated within 10 years. Current Hailey Mayor Fritz Haemmerle issued a “re-welcome” to the store, noting that the store “undoubtedly” helped play a role in making the valley more affordable to live in. Hailey Elementary School Principal Tom Bailey acknowledged his gratitude, as well, as Green presented a $1,000 check to the school, following the lead of the late Joe Albertson who always stressed giving back to the community. tws

The Punch line

movie review

Institutionalized Cruelty in ‘Bully’ Jon rated this movie


T This probably wasn’t what Dennis’ wife meant when she suggested he hang out with the movers and shakers!! PHOTO: SUSAN LITTLEFIELD 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.

he new documentary Bully is a serious downer but a film that must be seen, especially by middle schoolers and high school students around the country. Long decried as an epidemic in this country, Bully is a sobering film seen through the eyes of five victims and their families, two of whom have committed suicide. The movie is directed by Lee Hirsch and is co-written with Cynthia Lowen. The real audience for it is kids,

but the film has a second story behind it as the Motion Picture Association of America saw fit to give it an R rating, defeating the whole purpose. The Weinstein Company, the film’s distributor, decided to release it without a rating, leaving admittance to the discretion of the individual theaters. Thankfully, it is also now being shown in certain schools. Who exactly is to blame? That’s the question the film asks and clueless parents and meanspirited school administrators come under fire the most. The film looks at Alex, a 12-yearold who is attacked mercilessly and sadly declares, “If you say these people aren’t my friends, then what friends do I have?” Attacked violently on the school bus, which seems to be ground zero for bullying, the school

administrator responds that the kids on his bus are “good as gold” and that “kids will be kids.” The two suicides are the most painful as these kids were pushed over the edge by the cruelty they endured. Also powerful is the story of 16-year-old Kelly Johnson, who came out as a lesbian in a small town in Oklahoma only to find herself and her family cruelly ostracized by lifelong friends and by teachers at her school. What stands out in her case is her incredible strength and resiliency and the hope that someday she will escape this town and its prejudices and find a life with people that are tolerant of her sexual identity. That is also the profound hope for all the surviving children portrayed in this powerful film. tws

‘A Song for the Asking’ by Steve Gannon BY MARGOT VAN HORN


ave you ever noticed how good dentists are at telling stories? They’re usually smart, as well. So, there you are—per Steve’s website, he was an electrical engineer, dentist, actor, builder, and a concert promoter. From West L.A., I am pretty sure; he now resides in Ketchum. I don’t know how he finds time to do all that he does do so well, but one of those things is writing books. The other is being director of the Sun Valley Artist Series. Well, skiing comes in there somewhere, as well as other important things. But I digress. I want to talk about this really very good book that I could NOT put down. First I loved revisiting my

old haunts in California, but I think the way Steve describes them—West L.A., the California central coast, the Pacific Ocean and the Sierras—anyone would like these haunts. His characters for me came right to life—each and every one of them. The plot kept me in suspense and I could relate to it all, sorry to say. And even for dog lovers, there’s a lovely “tail.” The plot involving a very dysfunctional family full of co-dependents plus a very tough L.A. police officer in hairy crime mode can leave the reader a bit breathless. The story moves fast. But it’s not all blood and guts; it has a lot of deeper emotional and intellectual sides to it as well. I think that’s what makes it so interesting. It’s a very multifaceted

plot. I would not recommend it for a young reader, but definitely for a more mature young person on upward. Congratulations, Steve, for a grand first (hard-to-believe) book and I am looking forward to reading “Kane” (the sequel to this), “Stepping Stones” (arriving soon), “Allison” (supposedly out in September of this year), and “Glow” (coming in 2013).

Fishing R epoRt The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR May 30, 2012 By: JiM sanTa

greetings friends and welcome to another season of fishing here in the Wood River Valley. Sturtevants is proud to be sponsoring The Weekly Sun fishing report which you will find here every Wednesday throughout the summer and fall. While a few rivers and streams and most reservoirs remain open yearround, Memorial weekend marks the official opening of all rivers and streams is Idaho. With some relatively inclement weather and most streams still running high, there’s not abundance to report about this week. Fortunately we do have a wonderful fishery, Silver Creek, which is mostly unaffected by run-off and is typically the focal point for early season. Known for its prolific mayfly hatches, “the creek” lends itself to dry fly target fishing. With cool weather over the past weekend there was little hatch action and some fish were taken nymphing. With the weather warming this week we should see some hatches and this should be primarily baetis and possibly some pmd’s. Be prepared with a mix of mayfly and small natural nymph patterns in sizes 16-22. The first big event of the season on Silver Creek is the renowned Brown Drake hatch which can be expected in early to mid June, so keep your ear to the ground on this. This recent cool weather has slowed the run-ff on the Big Wood and its tributaries rendering some fishable water, primarily in the side channels and inside bends where the water may be a bit slower. Of course we can expect the river to rise again as it warms up, but due to a warmer early spring we may expect to have prime water by mid June. Ideally we’ll have great water conditions coinciding with the Green Drake hatch which when it happens, provides some of the finest fishing you’ll ever experience. In summary, it’s just the beginning of what should be an outstanding season of fishing. Our fly shops in both Ketchum and Hailey are fully stocked and we’re always happy to share the latest reports. Have fun and be safe out there.

Acupuncture Can Be a Treatment for Addictions BY ROSEMARY CODY


ddictions — whether to alcohol, nicotine, recreational drugs, prescription medications or overeating — tear a rough road for users and anyone accompanying them on the path. The rational part of our brains, the frontal cortex, thinks the solution is simple: Just stop using. Apply the brakes. But here’s the reality: the part of the brain affected by addiction holds the rational part hostage and takes off on an out-of-control trip of its own. It can be a long, complex, uncomfortable journey. The use of acupuncture and Chinese medicine offers a ray of hope in righting the course. The use of acupuncture to treat drug addictions started in the early 1970s in China. Dr. H.L. Wen, an acupuncturist and thoracic surgeon, used acupuncture post-operatively to hasten recovery. He noticed that certain ear points helped ease drug withdrawal in his post-operative patients who were also drug addicts. In 1974, at Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx of New York City, Dr. Michael Smith, a psychiatrist and acupuncturist, pioneered the first acupuncture-based substance abuse program in the United States. He expanded and refined Dr. Wen’s discovery, developing the protocol now used in over 1000 recovery programs worldwide—with an impressive success rate. The use of this protocol, known as the NADA (National Acupuncture Detox Association) protocol, stimulates the body’s endorphins, the same feel-good biochemical that seduces addicts into craving more. These endorphins then occupy the same receptor sites in the brain as the drugs. With these sites flooded with endorphins, the No Vacancy sign goes up. A natural high trumps the drug-induced high; the need to use is reduced. Here’s the drill: Short, thin, sterilized needles are inserted into five points in each ear. One point relates to the autonomic nervous system that regulates the fight-or-flight mechanism.

Another point calms the heart and spirit. With the system relaxed, “white knuckles” loosen their grip. Irritability softens. The three other points strengthen the main organs of detoxification—the lungs, liver and kidneys—speeding the body’s ability to clear toxins. In Chinese medicine, these points also have emotional significance. The liver processes anger and supports determination. Kidney refers to willpower and the duality of fear and courage. The lung relates to inspiration versus emptiness and self-esteem versus self-loathing. Acupuncture does not cure addictions. It does, however, have the power to reinforce you and your intentions. It helps you regain balance. Use it as an adjunct to other programs: counseling and support groups. In better balance, you may find it easier to look at yourself. As one client in the midst of recovery from cocaine abuse reported: “It allows me to free myself from my self.” Deepak Chopra, in his book “Overcoming Addictions: The Spiritual Solution,” describes addicts as seekers, albeit misguided ones, in the quest of happiness, pleasure, transcendence. The impulse is right; the direction is wrong. Chinese medicine—with its ancient wisdom—can lift you to a higher platform where you can see alternate routes. From this new perspective you, hopefully, will choose a higher road. tws For questions or to schedule a free consultation contact Rosemary Cody, licensed acupuncturist, at 720-7530.

Wildflower Walks Start Again STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


frigid wind raked the sagebrush at Sheep Bridge Canyon a few miles west of Timmerman Hill as we set out in search of wildflowers. The wildflowers could hardly have been faulted for staying tucked underground as spring delayed making its debut yet one more day. At first it looked as if the wildflowers might be just as recalcitrant. All we could spot were a few very little plants here and there, such as blue-eyed Marys that were scarcely bigger than the head of a pin. There were a dozen of us on the Sawtooth Botanical Garden’s first wildflower outing of the season. Several of the hikers came armed with flower guides to aid them in naming flowers they had known well last summer but had forgotten as winter snows covered them. “Don’t try to remember more than 10 your first walk,� cautioned Allison Kennedy Marks, the education director for the Sawtooth Botanical Garden. The 300 acres we were walking through was purchased by the Wood River Land Trust in 2006 to protect it from the threat of subdivision, WRLT spokesperson Ashley Wells told us. The sagebrush steppe provides prime habitat for deer, elk and pronghorn antelope. Basalt cliffs and volcanic outcrops lead down to Camas Creek where cottonwood trees house the yellow-billed cuckoo—a candidate for the Endangered Species Act. But, save for the small wolf tracks Wells and Kristina Naton spotted, our eyes were focused on wildflowers. Marks plucked an onion, which had yet to bloom, and passed it around for us to smell. “This is one of the first wildflowers to come out every spring,� she said. As we walked further, the ground suddenly seemed to be covered with tiny flowers. “Don’t step on the flowers,� someone said. We laughed, knowing that it was impossible not to. The mountain—or false—dandelion was the first of the larger, more showy flowers we spotted. Their stalks are thinner than those on the dandelions in our yard, Marks pointed out. “This plant is in the aster family,� she added. “It’s not just a weed.� An umbrella-like cluster of flowers is a dead giveaway that a flower is in the parsley family, Marks said, getting down on her knees to examine the yellow nine-leaf lomatium, or biscuitroot, so named because of leaves of three that divide into three more. The bare-stemmed biscuitroot looks like fireworks exploding, she noted, pointing to a nearby cousin. The group came to a lava shelf in which blue Camas were growing out of the cracks. This was the foodstuff of the Shoshone and Bannock Indians who traveled to the Camas Prairie every year to dig Camas bulbs. Pioneers’ indifference in letting their hogs root up the Camas

briefs Stevens to Focus on Pioneer Mountains Mike Stevens of the Pioneers Alliance will offer a free presentation on the Pioneer Mountains, which dominate much of the Wood River Valley, at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 6, at The Community Library in Ketchum. The Pioneer Mountains, which include lava fields and alpine summits, support long-distance migratory wild-

life, large working ranches and many opportunities for backcountry adventure. Stevens’ talk will include suggestions for how viewers can explore the region, along with commentary on conservation and community development in the area. The talk is sponsored by the Idaho Conservation League.

provoked the Bannock Indian Wars of 1879. We passed yellow arnica and a variety of different-colored buckwheat with their small, tightlyclustered flowers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look how red these buckwheat are compared with those over there,â&#x20AC;? pointed out Hailey resident Mila Lyon, noting the differences in the notebook she was carrying. The flowers seemed to be bigger as we marched farther west. Marks pointed out the greenish Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paintbrush, which she said will eventually turn a dishwater yellowâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not at all colorful and showy like its red and orange cousins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m partial to red, myself,â&#x20AC;? she added. Larkspur is always purple, Marks said, as she pointed out the â&#x20AC;&#x153;spurâ&#x20AC;? on the elongated flower that gives it its name. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see these growing out of the sagebrush a lot when hiking around. If you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know any better, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think they had sagebrush leaves. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you always have to be sure to separate plants in the process of identifying them,â&#x20AC;? she said. We shook hands with the latex-like leaves of a rabbit brush, which looked as if it was about to burst into tiny yellow flowers. We eyeballed a serviceberry bush, a member of the rose family whose berries provide food for birds and animals. And we examined the trumpet-shaped Western broomrape, a member of the figwort family, and Hookerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s balsamrootâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two plants even Marks had never seen before. All of a sudden we found ourselves gazing at clumps of deep lavender lupine as far as the eye could see. Later in the summer, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find yellow, pink and white lupine, their different colors indicating that their pollinators have visited other plants, Marks said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The seed is contained in pods that pop, whirling the seed out,â&#x20AC;? Marks said. Marks said the Botanical Garden walks will move a little farther north each week before ending up north of Ketchum on July 28 where last year they saw white bog orchids. Lyon said she plans to get in on as many of the walks as she can. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not as familiar with our wildflowers as I should beâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I make up names for them as I go along,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made a promise to myself this year Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to learn their real names.â&#x20AC;? Mead said she had just moved to Ketchum a year earlier and saw the walks as an opportunity to learn about her new home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more you look, the more tws you see,â&#x20AC;? she said.






The Sawtooth Botanical Garden will again mark its first Wildflower Walk of the season with a trip to the Wood River Land Trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sheep Bridge Preserve this Thursday, which abuts the Big Wood River and Camas Creek. Happily, the weather looks to be much warmer than last year, which this story was set in. The SBG will lead a walk in a new location for the nine Thursdays that follow, following the flowers as they bloom north. Wildflower Walks take place from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursdays, and will be led by Allison Kennedy Marks, Jeanne Cassell and other wildflower experts. Walks are $10 for SBG members and $15 for non-members. All depart from the SBG garden four miles south of Ketchum at Highway 75 and Gimlet Road. Participants should bring lunch, water and sunscreen.

Idaho Writer Discusses Tale of Corporate Indulgence BY KAREN BOSSICK


he story features a barefoot girl from red-dirt Oklahoma and it takes place in Saudi Arabia. But “In the Kingdom of Men” features the Idaho voice of Kim Barnes, who won a PEN USA Award for “A Country Called Home.” Barnes, who teaches writing at the University of Idaho in Moscow alongside her poet husband Robert Wrigley, will discuss her new mystery book at 6 p.m. Thursday at The Community Library in Ketchum. The book explores the tale of the daughter of a strict Methodist minister who accompanies her husband to the Middle East where he has taken a job with the Arabian American Oil company. There, the woman who was raised in a two-room shack is thrust into a home with marble floors and given a gardener and a houseboy to cook her meals. But her fairytale world is dashed when a young Bedouin woman is found dead on the beach of the Persian Gulf and her husband is blamed. “My husband didn’t kill her,

not the way they say he did,” the young woman says, setting the reader up for a grand mystery. Set against the backdrop of a country on the cusp of enormous change, the book has everything you could want—from sandstorms and locust swarms to Bedouin caravans—as it explores a marriage in peril and Americans trying to adapt to a strange new world. Barnes says she was inspired by her aunt and uncle’s experiences in Saudi Arabia during the 1960s and her own experience of oppression under the strict rule of her Pentecostal fundamentalist father. She described the latter in her memoir, “In the Wilderness: Coming of Age in Unknown Country.” The book was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for biography in 1997. Barnes says her latest book gave her a vehicle to talk about such issues as the historical oppression of women and the disconnects between the West and the Middle East. And, while the book just came out yesterday, already there is talk of a movie or television series. tws

Idaho Humanities Council Grants go to Local Projects The Idaho Humanities Council (IHC), the statewide nonprofit organization devoted to enhancing public awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the humanities in Idaho, awarded $75,575 in grants to organizations and individuals at its last board meeting in Boise. The grants were supported in part by funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and IHC’s Endowment for Humanities Education. Here are grants of local interest: The Idaho Museum of Natural History, Pocatello received $3,500 to conduct a scholar-led anthropological field trip for members of the public to the Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh Wildlife Management Area in Fairfield to study the prairie during the same time of year when Idaho’s Native Americans

traditionally harvested camas bulbs. The Community Library, Ketchum was awarded $2,500 to help support its annual Ernest Hemingway Symposium in October. Focusing on the theme of “Hemingway and Politics,” the symposium will highlight how Ernest Hemingway’s life and writing were influenced by world politics and how he may have used his writing to influence change. The Sawtooth Interpretive and Historical Association, Stanley, received $2,500 to support the development of interpretive exhibits about the Ice House in Stanley that was used for almost five decades to store ice, carved from the area’s alpine lakes during the winter, and distributed to local family ice boxes throughout the summer months.

The Clayton Area Historical Association, Clayton, received $1,100 to reprinting a brochure about central Idaho mining history, available to visitors of the museum. The historic mining supply store built in 1880, the last remaining mining company store in Idaho, was converted into the local museum several years ago. The Trailing of the Sheep Cultural Heritage Center in Hailey, was awarded $3,000 to produce a video documentary to preserve stories gathered at the 2011 “Women Writing and Living the West” Symposium. The College of Southern Idaho, Twin Falls, received $4,000 for a publication on the Minidoka Japanese Internment Camp to be distributed in parks, historical societies, and college and university bookstores.

It’s a Berry Good Recipe BY MARGOT VAN HORN


bet tyou thought that Memorial Day was over. Well, it’s not. Today is the real deal. In order to make a three-day holiday of it, this holiday was changed to the last Monday of May. So, I am still thinking red, white and blue. France also is a red, white and blue nation, so I thought that a French dish could be appropriate for today. The clafouti is an excellent and easy dish to make. It actually looks elegant when dusted with a bit of powdered sugar. I’m not sure that elegance was in mind when the clafouti was originated. It started out as an ancient rustic peasant French pudding made in late spring and featuring typically stone fruits. It was served for dessert, but it can also work as a nice breakfast dish. You can make it with various fruits and with many slightly different ingredients. I serve mine warm with French vanilla ice cream or yogurt.

Clafouti aux Baie (berries in French) Ingredients:

4 egg whites, lightly beaten 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1/3 C. granulated sugar 3 Tbsp. honey 2 Tbsp. Kirch (cherry liqueur but you can also use orange liqueur or juice) 1 tsp. vanilla Dash of salt 1 1/2 C. whole milk yogurt I C. flour 3 C. mixed berries—or, if you wish, just one kind of berries 2 tsp. sifted confectioner’s sugar For garnish, save some berries


Preheat oven to 375° F. In a large bowl beat together the egg whites, eggs, sugar, honey, Kirsch, vanilla and salt with an electric beater. Stir in the yogurt till smooth. Add flour and beat until combined and smooth. Arrange the berries on the bottom of a buttered or non-stick sprayed 10-inch ceramic quiche dish. Pour the batter over the berries. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the center seems set when shaken slightly. Cool for 30 minutes.

To Serve:

Serve the clafouti warm. Just before serving sprinkle with the sifted confectioner’s sugar and garnish with the leftover saved berries. Are you a frustrated, overworked or timid cook?

he 15th annual Sun Valley Wellness Festival was the Valley hot spot on a drippy, grey Memorial Day weekend. Hundreds of people crowded into the Sun Valley Inn to listen to speakers teach sacred chants, talk about grace and describe how to turn back the hands of time, regenerating the aging bodies of humans and animals. Even children flocked to the conference, more than doubling the number who turned out for last year’s inaugural Next Generation Wellness Kids workshops. Young’uns listened as Bellevue artist Pam Street told them that setting their intentions in a journal could help their dreams come true. And teen-agers like Tommy and Cooper Bailey turned out for some lectures, lured by passes given to them by the Blaine County Drug Coalition. “We thought it sounded cool,” said Cooper. Jane Perry, whose cousin Marcia Duff is a Wellness Festival board member, said she was making the trek from her home in Hamilton, Mont., to the festival for the fourth time. “For me, it’s like a retreat—

getting back to what’s important and taking time for me,” she said. “I expose myself to new ideas and remember old ideas.” Below is a look at some of the revelations shared by Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor in her keynote address. Check out next Wednesday’s Weekly Sun for more insights from the Wellness Festival ranging from a look at one of the most coveted Chinese herbs in the world to the smile factor that’s involved in helping you live longer. tws


ity the poor teen-ager. He hits puberty and loses half his mind. No kidding. We’re all born with two times the neurons that we will ever use, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor told a full house at Sun Valley’s Limelight Room Friday night. Then, half of it is pruned at puberty. Parents can help teen-agers through this by encouraging them to stick to their agenda, Taylor said. If they ski, have them continue skiing. Don’t let them use drugs and alcohol because this is their most vulnerable time other than the first few years when they’re establishing their connections. “If you want to do drugs and alcohol, wait until you’re 25,” she said. “The last portion of our brain to come alive is our frontal lobe, our sense of reason and decision making. At 17, my child’s ethical and moral sense of decision-making is not his.” Taylor has seen the brain from both sides—that of a researcher and that of a patient who struggled to regain her mind after suffering a hemorrhage in her left brain in 1996. Since the right brain is not connected to the left brain, her right brain functioned perfectly well. In fact, it was pretty happy, having lost all the emotional baggage associated with her left brain, said Taylor, a fast-talking live wire, who kept the audience chuckling with her unbridled enthusiasm and frequent exclamation points.

“When we’re in our left brain, we would rather be right than happy. When we’re in our right, we would rather be happy than right.” Neurons are like the people packed into the room, she added, trying to humanize the brain and make brain science simple. They’re densely packed but able to communicate with others across the room. “If some were wiped out, they would make new connections. I would not be standing here today if not for neuroplasticity. My cells died off.” That said, the conversation is not going to be as rich if you lose half the people in the room as do those battling alcoholism or Alzheimer’s disease, she added. Taylor said what she knows has taught her to be grateful. “Our nervous system is made up of one trillion cells; our body, 50 trillion cells. How can we not look at one another and say, ‘Wow!?’” “The last thing I say when I go to sleep is: ‘Please bring me health.’ Come morning, say good morning to your cells. They’re you!” Taylor challenged the audience to think in terms of responseability—the ability to choose how to respond. “Always ask yourself: What is the point of my life? What am I doing at the moment?” she said. “Stay out of your own negative emotionality. What are you doing with your power? Pay attention to what you’re doing with your power.” tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, Remember the days of cassette tapes? You know those things that came between the 8-track and the CD. Well I have literally hundreds of them and I don't know what to do with them all. Were talking thousands of hours of Billy Joel, Madonna, U2 and the Beatles, to name a few. Throwing them out seems like a downright crime. Today I have everything on my MP3 player so the tapes just sit in the closet taking up space. I can't bring myself to toss them since I spent most of my allowance on them growing up. My parents are lucky. They saved all their 45 records from their youth and put them in a gorgeous jukebox that they can still listen to every day. But my generation, the one with cassette tapes, is left out in the cold. Is there anything I can do with them or are they destined to sit in my closet forever?

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ Carry: It seems like some things become classics and others just become obsolete. The hard part is trying to guess which ones will be the classics. Cash: Take vinyl records, for

example. Like you stated, the 45 rpm records of the 50's and 60's became nostalgic, synonymous with the "Do-Wop" era. However, most of my records from the 70's barely get an offer at a yard sale. Carry: Neither do my 8-track tapes! Cash: It's not just music mediums though. All kinds of electronics and related items are becoming obsolete. Videotapes have been replaced by DVD's, Blue-Ray or online viewing. Carry: And when it comes to TV's, everyone today wants the latest high definition sets. Cash: However, that doesn't mean there isn't a market for your cassette tape collection. You may

be surprised to learn that there is a collector for practically everything, even those items bought with your hard earned allowance. Carry: If your tapes are originals and not copies, then take out a short ad in your newspaper. There may be someone right in your area who collects them. You could be surprised at the number of calls you get. Cash: Fortunately, cassette tapes are not completely obsolete just yet. Most used cars are still equipped with a cassette deck to play your collection. Carry: And remember the bright side. At least you didn't spend your allowance on Betamax videos.

Reader Humor Lessons Learned

Before CD's and MP3's, vinyl records were all the craze. But why did they come in three speeds: 78 rpm, 33-1/3 rpm and 45 rpm? While some of the reasoning had to do with sound quality, most was a result of marketing. The 78's were the standard up until the late 1940's when Columbia mass released their 33-1/3 rpm "Microgroove" system. The 12" record held more music and became the new standard. However, at the same time RCA developed the 45 rpm record that was only 7" in diameter. It became the popular choice for releasing single songs.

My co-worker and I are music teachers and were traveling to a conference together recently. About an hour into the trip, I pulled out a map and completely unfolded it across the dashboard. Its size was quite obnoxious. After finding our route, I then struggled to refold it back to its original shape. After several failed attempts, I was convinced it wasn't possible. As my desperation grew, my co-worker finally pulled the car over to help. He grabbed the map and like magic folded it perfectly into its original form. "That's amazing" I told him, "How did you do that?" "I've had a lot of practice," he smiled at me. "As a kid I played the accordion!" (Thanks to Alvin M.)

Staying Hip

With the advances in technology, most of us need a technical dictionary to keep up with the lingo. Previous generations used terms such as "record" or "cassette" to describe the medium. Today, the lingo is far more encrypted using abbreviations like CD, DVD or MP3. While most of us recognize the term "Compact Disk" (CD), fewer know the term "Digital Versatile Disk", formerly "Digital Video Disc" (DVD). And for those not aware, MP3 stands for MPEG1 (Moving Picture Experts Group) Audio Layer 3. It's a good thing they shortened that!
