Hiking Series begins June 4 Photo & Story By KAREN BOSSICK


urn a hike into a plein air painting outing, a meditation session or an exploration of moose territory. The Idaho Conservation League is taking a new tack with its hikes this year by assigning a theme for each hike. Each hike will be led by a leader who is a thematic expert, said Brett Stevenson, who heads up the Ketchum ICL office: “Our hike leaders are inspiring locals with knowledge and skills to share. It will be a fun and interesting way to see some spectacular spots in our backyard.” Here’s the lineup: Saturday, June 4 Picabo Hills: Watercolor Painting with Dayna Gross, Silver Creek Preserve manager and artist. The hike will include a short hike up Mosquito Hill—an ideal spot for painting. Hikers should bring watercolors or other painting or drawing supplies. 2 miles. Easy to moderate. Saturday, June 18 Trail Creek: Riparian Exploration with Hannes Thum, Community School biology teacher. Hike off-trail in moose territory while enjoying an interesting discussion about the intricacies of riparian habitats. 5 miles. Easy to moderate. Wednesday, July 13 Timber and Federal Gulch: Pioneer Mountains with Mike Stevens, Lava Lake Land & Livestock president and Pioneer Mountain Group co-founder and managing member. Mike will discuss the heritage, geography, and conservation efforts of the Pioneer Mountains. The group may decide to continue up nearby Grays Peak. 8 miles, 2,500-foot elevation gain. Moderate to difficult. Saturday, July 23 Mill Lake: Meditation in the Mountains with Lacey Segal, Healing Touch/Theta healer and meditation teacher. The hike to Mill Lake offers a look at the geological process that helped shaped the Sawtooth Mountains. Lacey will offer a meditation beside the barren moraine that cradles Mill Lake. 4.5 miles, 1,000-foot elevation gain. Easy to moderate. Saturday, July 30 Headwaters of the Big Wood River: Water of the Wood River Valley with Dr. Wendy Pabich, a local hydrologist. Pabich will lead hikers to the source

hen a black man in his 70s found himself homeless, Betsy Pearson issued him an invitation. “Come live with us,” she said. The man, who had been a maitre’d, ended up living with Betsy and her husband Bob for 30 years, jumping at every opportunity to pay them back by donning his white coat and draping a towel over his arm for the couple’s frequent dinner parties. The spacious yard tucked in the woods surrounding the four-bedroom, four-bath log home Betsy designed off Lower Broadford Road in 1972 never lacks for human companionship, whether it be for the family’s large family reunions or Monday night volleyball matches that lure teenagers and 73-year-olds alike. And when Betsy’s friends give her a moment, you’ll find this 89-year-old woman painting a landscape to benefit the Sun Valley Summer Symphony, the animal shelter or another charity. She even climbed aboard a scaffold at 82 to paint a 10-foot tall painting for the Sagebrush Arena’s annual Cowboy Ball. Pearson will be honored for her contributions to the Wood River Valley on June 19 when she and three other women are inducted into the Blaine County Heritage Court. Like the other three, she was not born in the valley. But she fast fell in love with it and the valley fast fell in love with her. “She just jumped in when she got here, joining boards all over town,” said her son Brad Pearson. “She always told me one of the great blessings of her art was she was allowed to give back. And she has a big heart that doesn’t limit family to blood. She’s always taking in someone who’s fallen on hard times.” Pearson was born in Salinas, Kan., the daughter of an insurance man who treated his family to summer vacations at a cabin in Minnesota. After getting an art degree at the University of Kansas, she followed her older sister to New York where she got a job as art director at Lord & Taylor, a high-fashion Fifth Avenue department store. That eventually led to a job at the New York Herald Tribune where she wrote and illustrated a syndicated column on parenting for 17 years in the days when no one else was doing that sort of thing. Eventually, she parlayed those columns into two books full of tips you don’t find in the newspaper every day even today. “ABCs for Mothers,” for instance, tells how to restore crayon points by warming

Roxyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market opens Friday By KAREN BOSSICK


new world of waffle-cut sweet potatoes, sweet chili and garlic scallion soups and pumpkin flax granola will open Friday when Roxyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market opens its doors in Ketchum. The store is located across from nexStage Theatre on Main Street on the site of the former Williams Market. Williams closed in 2005 after a dozen years in business. The new store, which has about 12,000 square feet of retail space and 2,000 additional square feet of office and storage space, will have a full-service meat, seafood and produce department. It also will have with a deli offering prepared â&#x20AC;&#x153;grab-and-goâ&#x20AC;? breakfast, lunch and dinner items. The store will carry about 12,000 items, including an array of soy, rice, coconut and hemp milks, Metro Mint micronutrient peppermint and lemon mint water, breaded vegan shrimp and red cod filets, Greek Gods Greek yogurt, Ginger People salad dressings, organic barbecue sauce, roasted yellow pepper finishing sauce and chili lime and cashew crackers It also sports about 150 bulk items, including hemp plus granola, tamari pumpkin seeds and mung beans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice size â&#x20AC;&#x201D; cozy, yet big enough to house everything you need without getting lost like can happen in a big box store,â&#x20AC;? said the storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake Roxanne Lawler. Roxanne and her husband Michael Lawler are long-time real estate developers specializing in homes and hotels. They decided to build the grocery store right in the midst of the Great Recession because they needed something to do, Roxanne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like to build thingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all about the projects,â&#x20AC;? said Roxanne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The food part for me

is a learning process but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to listen to what our customers want. We plan to carry as much local as possibleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but that is a learning curve as you make the connections and deal with transportation issues and the short growing season.â&#x20AC;? The couple has lived for the past 10 years in Telluride where they operated The Market at Mountain Village. They opened a 6,000-square foot Roxyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market in Aspen last year. The graduation of their youngest daughter is allowing them to return â&#x20AC;&#x153;hopefully, full-timeâ&#x20AC;? to Ketchum where they lived from 1995 to 1999. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Her graduation is allowing us to reinvent ourselves and giving us the freedom and flexibility to move around,â&#x20AC;? Roxanne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look at this as an adventure. We like the people here and we have a lot of friends here from when we lived here before.â&#x20AC;? Roxanne considers shopping as an adventure, too. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, for instance, her store will offer an array of chips, including Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Own Soy Crisps, Crisp Root Cassava chips, Baked Lentil chips, Boulder Canyon kettle-type chips and Solea Polenta corn chips in Mediterranean lime and guacamole flavors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I could live on chips, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anyone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gravitate towards this type of thing,â&#x20AC;? Roxanne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Food for me is an adventureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an opportunity to try new things. And there are a lot of great healthy snacks here that maybe people havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen before. Roxanne said her goal is to create an effortless shopping experience with an emphasis on customer service and ease of access. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a work in progress,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you see now may not be what you see three months from now.â&#x20AC;? tws

couple dozen youngsters and their Moms started off Saturday morning rubbing balloons on their hair. The hair-raising static electricity that followed proved a visible lesson about the energy that we can’t see as retired school counselor Wanda Tierney and physical therapist Mary Kay Foley began teaching youngsters about using Healing Touch to calm their body and make it feel better. “Just like the rainbows that are produced by sun and rain, we have a rainbow in our body,” said Foley. “We call the energy centers in our bodies ‘chakras’ and the different chakras are represented by the colors of the rainbow.” “When you work through your chakras what you’re doing is Healing Touch for you,” added Tierney. The class was the first of a handful offered to children for the first time since the Sun Valley Wellness Festival started 14 years ago. “I liked it,” said Esmee Wiethorn, one of the youngsters attending the workshop. “It made me calm and relaxed.” Hundreds of people from in state and out of state turned out

for the four-day Wellness Festival in the Sun Valley Inn over the weekend. Snow on Sunday gave organizers headaches that couldn’t be cured with aromatherapy as they scurried to get speakers whose planes had been diverted to Twin Falls to their podium in time. Those who made took the time to duck in out of the snow to attend inspirational speaker Alan Cohen’s talk were treated to a wealth of pithy suggestions: • You miss 100 percent the shots you don’t take. Just filling out an application increases your potential. • You’re the most powerful when you’re the most grateful. One physicist who had been diagnosed with cancer began expressing thanks for everything, including his cancer. Now, 25 years later, he’s disease-free. • Never again talk about “the economy” because there is no such thing. Some thrive in bad economies while others flounder in good economies. Even the Empire State Building was built during the heart of the Great Depression. • Having trouble figuring out the solution to a problem? Do as Alexander Graham Bell did and take a catnap. Bell held a rock as he fell asleep. He would drop the rock when he woke up—right in the midst of solving the problem in his subconscious. tws

that we have forgotten in our time. One Nepalese woman living at 16,500 feet asked him “Do you know how special time this is?” he related. Then she expounded: “Our tradition says when we can stand on the rock and not touch the glacier, it’s time to move to lower elevation. “ Greenhouse gasses existed before civilization and are part of our nature’s cyclical change, he said. We did not create global warming, he added. The problem is our culture does not allow for change, as do other cultures. Braden said that a time of change is upon the world and that this generation has a chance to put into action one of the universe’s deep truths: That nature is based on cooperation, not competition. Braden said scientists have documented that human activity corresponds to solar cycles. The Global Coherence Monitoring System, for instance, documented spikes in both at the start of the Iraq War with Kuwait and with the current unrest in the Middle East. Braden said changes in the earth’s magnetic field are associated with changes in brain and nervous system activity. Humans are affected by these electromagnetic waves and humans affect these electromagnetic waves. Fifteen minutes after planes flew into the World Trade Center, for instance, activity in the earth’s field spiked as those around the globe reacted to the act of terrorism. There is also a documented decrease in chaos in the world on Global Peace Day, Braden said. Braden said it’s hard to declare war in the presence of coherence. “I believe war is a bad habit that we learned 5,000 years ago,” he said. “The question is: Are we going to choose cooperation of competition? Fear or love?” tws

ncient civilizations left no evidence of war or weapons of war. And there is a good chance the next generation will walk away from war because it will be deemed obsolete, best-selling author Gregg Braden told a standing-room-only crowd in Sun Valley’s Limelight Room Friday night. Braden, the keynote speaker of the 14th Annual Sun Valley Wellness Festival, presented a two-hour slide show giving listeners a preview of his new book “Deep Truth,” scheduled to be published in September. The title speaks to those “deep truths” that humankind has long held sacred that are eventually disproved and replaced by other “deep truths.” The science we’ve come to rely on is based on false assumptions, Braden said. Among them the idea that evolution explains life. Charles Darwin took some observations from some life and applied it to all life, Braden said. The idea that life comes from non-life has never been documented. The idea that existing life can evolve into new forms has never been observed. In fact, just the opposite is true--a baby found in Northern Europe that was carbon dated to 30,000 B.C. looks just like us. Another false assumption is the idea that civilization is 5,000 years old, Braden said. The Sphinx was arbitrarily estimated to 4,500 years old. But the 66-foot-tall Egyptian statue sports water damage and there hasn’t been water in Egypt since the big rains at the end of last ice age, which is believed to have ended about 10,000 years ago, Braden said. Additionally, scientists have determined that an advanced civilization in Caral, Peru, ended about 5,000 years ago. And Gobekli Tepe, an advanced civilization in Turkey, has been dated back at least 14,000 years. Braden said he has traveled the world trying to find out what our ancestors knew in their time

Caritas Chorale benefit concerts This Saturday and Sunday in Ketchum By KAREN BOSSICK


he Caritas Chorale will commemorate the centennial anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic Saturday and Sunday when it presents its Fifth Annual Spring Benefit Concert, “All That Jazz.” The chorale will sing ”Godspeed Titanic,” “In Every Age,” “How Did They Build Titanic?” “There She Is,” “Doing the Latest Rag” and “Lady’s Maid.” The musical menu salutes the luxury liner, which sank in April 1912, said Chorale Director Dick Brown. And it pays homage to the musical “Titanic,” which won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical after opening on Broadway in 1997. “The last survivor died just recently,” Brown added. The Chorale will perform pop and Broadway songs at 5:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Gail Severn Gallery in Ketchum. Tickets are available at the door. The spring benefit concert is popular with the 80 singers in the Caritas Chorale because singing breezy show tunes gives them a respite from the very complicated pieces they performed over the winter, including “Psalm of David.” And it’s popular with audience members because they get to enjoy wine and a large array of

hors d’oeuvres and desserts prepared by Chorale members while perusing the art in the gallery before the concert. This is one of two fundraisers that the Chorale stages each year. The money goes to purchase sheet music and pay for professional orchestra members to accompany their other concerts, which are offered free to the public. Next year the Chorale plans to sing a commissioned piece by Boise composer David Alan Earnest and Carey sheep rancher Diane Josephy Peavey saluting Idaho’s Nez Perce Indians. This year’s benefit concerts will include selections from “The Music Man”—the musical St. Thomas Playhouse plans to stage in October. Other songs will include “All That Jazz” from “Chicago,” “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” and “Sure On This Shining Night,” which Samuel Barber set to James Agee’s poetry. “One of the nice things about the concert is that it’s short enough that you have plenty of time to go to dinner afterwards,” said Brown.

ell, the end of the world came and went, like usual. I was hoping to be rescued from the endless toil of existence. I Bali Szabo recall my spiritual teacher once saying, ‘It won’t be that easy!’ For many, doomsday is retirement. Recent studies have shown that post-work leisure (I don’t mean happy hour) is bad for your health. Our minds and bodies need stress, challenge and use. When we’re too busy to get sick, we’re healthy. In a way, the same goes for plants and animals. Species that stop evolving, when they become maximally adapted to their environs, face extinction. The wild plants here in the Habitat need stress. The worst thing I can do for them is to spoil them, like we do with our children. The same principle applies—they won’t be ready to handle crisis. There’s no shortage of work in the spring. Unlike in autumn, there is no tomorrow—today is it. Work is a four-letter word. A lot of people come up to me and want advice, mostly about minimizing work. We all want to automate, to put in something ‘that will take care of itself.’ One of the attractions of native xeriscaping is the mistaken notion that no care will be necessary, that nature will take care of it; after all, it doesn’t have a gardener. Not so fast. We’ve altered the natural world to the point

17th Century silver bells (Ornithogalum) in the Habitat.

where ‘it’ doesn’t exist. We’ve disturbed the soils, changed the content of the air and water, and introduced and empowered a host of invasives. There’s always work to do, feeding and weeding (I don’t mean using Weed and Feed), cleaning, cutting back, etc. Granted, like with people, gardens can be low and high maintenance. Any ‘natural’ planting is going to require looking after for the first few years. We can’t just mail it in. For instance, only soil variation will give us variety. Pentstemons and gilia like lean, rocky, relatively dry soil and a pebble mulch for re-seeding. A coneflower wants a meadow environment—wetter and higher organic content, like most prairie flowers. Forest wildflowers need rich soil, moisture and some shade. Flowers, like us, have their own little worlds they like to live in. It’s my job

to help them with that. They’re training me. Clearing out unattractive invasives is a constant. Every year has its dream. Last fall it was to clear out the entrenched understory below two box elders. Over the years, it’s become a jungle of lush burdock, nightshade and rhizomous grasses. The vision is to clear out the space, sodbuster-style, and create a feast for the eye with spring bulbs pushing through a cover of wild strawberries, waterleaf and woodruff, with spots of forest wildflowers, ferns, pulmonaria and the like. In two years, it should start to look like something. In five, maybe Elysium, or what Alice saw as she stepped through the looking glass. tws If you have question or comments, contact Bali at this e-mail:

Student Veteran Project explores relief from TBI CONTRIBUTED BY HANNAH BAYBUTT AND TORI EMERICK


oldiers of war and veterans come back to the United States not only carrying an M16 and a heavy backpack full of essentials, but emotional and physical baggage as well. The emotional baggage may include traumatic brain injury (TBI), or memories that limit their ability to easily blend back into society. They may face challenges with their families, friends, and co-workers, and even possibly, encounter confrontations while trying to obtain the much-needed assistance from the Veterans Association. Wood River High School juniors in Ms. Haugen and Mr. Nemecek’s English class saw this as a concern, and decided to complete a project to bring awareness to the active soldiers and veterans who have given and continue to give. Students Hannah Baybutt, Tori Emerick, Gonzalo Cubillo de Regoyos, and Jake Vegwert

chose a project focused on finding opportunities provided to local veterans. Their search led to Rosemary Cody’s Veterans’ Acupuncture Clinic where free treatments are offered every Tuesday evening to veterans and their families. The treatments are provided to help alleviate stress, trauma, and improve mental clarity. While attending one of Cody’s clinics, the students were able to listen in, as well as talk with and interview veterans that regularly participate in the treatments. They experienced the huge impact Cody makes upon veterans through her clinics. They also learned that even the simplest and smallest form of help that we, as a country, may give to veterans, active soldiers, and their families is our support, gratitude, and recognition of their services.

Memorial Day weekend Armory rededication capped with candy drop By KAREN BOSSICK


ixty-three years after Gail Halvorsen bombed Berlin with candy, the retired Air Force colonel dropped candy over the alfalfa fields in Hailey’s Quigley Canyon. Full-sized Hershey bars tied to parachutes rained over the fields as Halvorsen, held by Hailey’s plastic surgeon, Tom Crais, M.D., FACS, dumped them out of a vintage Tri-Engine Grumman amphibian plane. Hundreds of children, including Joey and Michael Martin and Sophia and Ethan Peck, ran up a steep sagebrush-covered hill east of the Quigley pond and then up hills lining the south side of the field as a brisk wind blew the parachutes off course. “It’s not Tempelhof Air Force Base in the middle of the city,” said bemused Ketchum resident Ellen Gillespie. Gillespie’s father, Karl von der Heyden, tried in vain as a 10-year-old boy to snag one of the candy parachutes during the 1948-49 Russian blockade of Berlin. Thursday afternoon Gillespie’s husband James and son Tom snagged a couple for him. Standing straight as a ramrod, the tall, lean colonel—who can still fit into his World War II uniform, according to his wife Lorraine—showed a standingroom-only crowd at The Community Library a video of bulky C-54s dropping in over bombedout buildings onto a plank runway covered with hot tar in the center of Berlin. Planes would never stop but would taxi down the runway as men unloaded the food for the starving Berliners. Then they’d take off as another plane dropped in behind them. “I couldn’t believe two million people could live in a place so ravaged by bombs,” Halvorsen said. Wanting to see the city, Halvorsen hitched a ride aboard a plane on his day off and got off to see 30 children pressed up against the fence. He offered them the two sticks of gum he had and was so impressed by

their gratitude that he promised to drop more candy to them. Halvorsen described how one child smelled the gum wrapper, holding it in his hand like a precious treasure. “Because not one kid stuck out his hand and said, ‘Gimme,’ they got over 20 tons of candy in 14 months,” he added. Wolfgang Behnke, who sells New Age CDs at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival, was able to meet with Halvorsen with Gillespie’s help. Behnke, who was 12 during the airlift, said he had always wanted to meet an airlift pilot. Behnke said the bombings, which strafed Berlin from 1942 through 1945, were always preceded with sirens that started at bedtime. “Sometimes a bomb would hit nearby and our building would shake and the sky would be red from burning. We would crawl out the next morning and be lucky enough to live another day,” he said. “Then the street fighting started with grenades going off all over. I got caught in one and a German soldier stuck me in his

vehicle. Another time, the Allies carpet-bombed the city. Forty planes laid a path of bombs right through the city and as far as you could see everything was gone.” Teachers told students it was okay to throw rocks at Jews’ windows, he recalled. And everybody crowded around the radio when Hitler spoke—“he was a great orator.” As the war ended, women cleaned mortar off bricks that could be reused and built a “mountain” with unusable rubble, while he played in the ruins, finding pistols and other treasures. The Russians came in wanting watches and something to drink, he said. “One woman gave a soldier an alarm clock and he threw it away because he thought it was a bomb,” said Behnke, who now lives in Genoa, Nev. After the war, food was scarce, even for the Russian soldiers stationed in Berlin. But the Russians shared their sugar cubes with hungry youngsters, Behnke

Haileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Memorial Ceremony, sky-high

Memorial Day weekend, from previous page recalled. Once, when Behnke got pushed to the end of a bread line, a Russian soldier picked him up and fired his machine gun, sending the others scattering as he took him to the front of the line. As scary as the bombing was, Gillespie said, her father said it was even scarier when bad weather halted the food drops because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how long the bad weather would last. Behnke said his family was so hungry they mixed tree bark with water and poured it over potato peels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The food planes ran day and nightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it was a beautiful sound. And I remember hundreds of kids scrambling for candy. One of my friends came up with a Hershey bar and the six of us split it.â&#x20AC;?

Burt Huish, a retired J.C. Penneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive who lives in Twin Falls, said the thousand residents of Halvorsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hometown of Garland near the IdahoUtah border â&#x20AC;&#x153;came ungluedâ&#x20AC;? when they learned of Halvorsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s candy drops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seymourâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as we called himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was a humble individual we looked up to and he was addicted to flying,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He hated sugar beets and farming and saw flying as an escape. The town named him one of its 10 most influential people at its centennial. And they named me, as wellâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sung at 1,800 funerals and 27 Major League ball parks.

Gillespieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father makes good


llen Gillespie says the Berlin airlift, which delivered food to starving Berliners, including her father, Karl von der Heyden, made a world of difference in ensuring that he and, eventually, she could enjoy the good life outside the Communist sphere. Von der Heyden may have been just one boy in a city of 2 million starving people. But he certainly made the most with what he was given and made an impact on the bigger world as a result. After attending the Free University of Berlin, he graduated from Duke University in 1962 and obtained an MBA from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania two years later. He joined Coopers & Lybrand in Philadelphia, became corpo-

rate controller at Pitney-Bowes a few years later and then went on to top positions at R.J.R. Nabisco, H.J. Heinz Company, and Pepsi-Cola Company. He currently heads up the American Academy in Berlin, which he co-chairs with Henry Kissinger. He also is the namesake for the beautiful glass-walled Karl and Mary Ellen von der Heyden Pavilion at Duke University. Gillespie said her mother, an Oregon native, was a Quaker smuggling prescription medicine into East Germany when she met Ellenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father. Gillespieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandfather, Werner Muller von der Heyden, helped design the Junkers 52â&#x20AC;&#x201D;the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iron Annieâ&#x20AC;? troop transport aircraft for the Luftwaffe. After the war, Russia imprisoned him in Siberia, hoping to enlist him in its space program. tws

A Little Night Laughter starts tonight By KAREN BOSSICK


laudia McCain has had one of those nightmares— many, in fact. One of her most vivid finds her running off a rainy New York street onto the stage of an Elizabethan theater. “Then I see all those people looking at me, waiting for my line,” the Ketchum actor recalled. “And I don’t remember what the line is.” It’s called “An Actor’s Nightmare.” And, as actors’ nightmares go, it’s probably the worst. But it becomes the stuff of comedy this week when several seasoned actors present this Christopher Durang play and three other short comedies at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. The four plays make up an evening called “A Little Night Laughter.” They’ll take the stage at 7 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Opening night playgoers can pop the cork on some free champagne being served up from 6 to 7 p.m. “We figured that in this recession, everybody needs a laugh,” said Jon Kane, associate producer for the nexStage Theatre. “We wanted to create a really funny evening, get people out of their houses, enjoying themselves.” “A Little Night Laughter” will feature Scott Creighton, Steve D’Smith, Claudia McCain, Charlotte Hemmings, Bill Raymond, Jon Kane, Keith Moore and Dana DuGan. The plays will be directed by Bill Raymond, a professional TV, film and theater actor and director from New York who has worked on HBO’s “The Wire” and was in “12 Monkeys,” “City of Hope” and “Eight Men Out.” The winner of three Obie Awards, Raymond also worked on Broadway with Patti LuPone in “Gypsy,” participated in the influential experimental New

York theater group “Mabou Mines,” and toured the world portraying Ulysses S. Grant in “Cold Harbor.” Raymond has been to the Valley thrice before, on one occasion participating in a play reading with “Batman” Adam West, who lives in Ketchum. Raymond calls “An Actor’s Nightmare” a “laugh riot.” It revolves around a man who is mistaken for an actor’s understudy after the leading actor breaks both legs. He doesn’t know any of the lines. He doesn’t know how he got backstage. He’s not sure he’s an actor—he thinks he’s an accountant. And he can’t even get a straight answer as to whether the actors around him are staging Noel Coward’s “Private Lives,” Samuel Beckett’s “Checkmate” or Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” While the piece majors in being funny, those who are familiar with theater will enjoy the attention to detail that Durang has written into the play, McCain said. For instance, all the characters are real actors—“mine was a famous actress in England, famous for her portrayal of Lady MacBeth,” she said. “Mere Mortals” by David Ives eavesdrops on three construction workers as they talk about previous lives as Marie Antoinette and the like while lunching on a girder 50 stories over the street.

“We figured that in this recession, everybody needs a laugh. We wanted to create a really funny evening, get people out of their houses, enjoying themselves.” –Jon Kane Associate Producer for nexStage Theatre

“It’s a terrific comic study in character,” said Raymond. “Duck Variations” by David Mamet depicts two elderly men sitting on a park bench discussing the mating habits of ducks before segueing into friendship and death. “David Mamet is quite an expert piece of work,” said Raymond. And Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s On First” revisits the famous vaudeville comedy that goes over the top in its ambiguity. “We think everyone’s going to have a great time,” said Kane. “It’s going to be very entertaining and very funny.” tws

The Hangover II: Here we go again Jon rated this movie



Dr. Carnes discovers that Kim really does have Betty Davis eyes! 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 wolf pack is back! Hailed by the promotional campaign as the greatest sequel ever (see Godfather II), The Hangover II fails to deliver the goods. But you can hardly blame the director, Todd Philips, and the cast. The Hangover is one of the great comedies in recent memory as well as the

highest grossing R-rated comedy of all time, and would be difficult to top by anyone. To his credit, Philips tries, but the original remains untouchable. But that doesn’t mean the film is bereft of jokes. It certainly can provide an entertaining afternoon at the movies but those looking for the original’s wit and verve will be disappointed. Part of the problem is coming up with an original premise. Instead, we have the retread of the boys attending another wedding only to be sidetracked by an evening of drug-fueled debauchery, only this time the action is set in the underbelly of Bangkok and with a raunchier tone. How could

this happen again? It’s a little hard to believe but you need to suspend credulity to hop aboard for the ride. This time it’s Ed Helms that is getting married to a Thai beauty in Thailand and Bradley Cooper and the scene-stealing Zach Galifianakis are along for the ride. Galifianakis’ role seems to have been expanded a little bit after his breakout performance in the original, and, for the most part, he delivers. The other guys play their parts as well. The problem is that the script can’t shake its redundancy and that’s its inevitable stumbling block. tws

Harrison Hotel

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You don’t have to be great to sell your work. You just have to do something that others want. Popularity and financial success go hand in hand. But this week you may discover that financial success is not your ultimate goal. There is some other kind of satisfaction that strikes a deeper and more resonant chord in you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Of course you prefer to talk and behave in the ways you are used to -- it’s comfortable. But you’re also willing to try new phrases and mannerisms and hang out with different people. Your experimental mood will allow you to sample many perspectives and understand where you can fit in the best and be most useful. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll have a positive experience with someone, which makes you think you like the person a great deal. Maybe you do. Or maybe it’s more about what you are doing than with whom you are doing it and it all gets mixed into the same happy feeling. The bottom line is that you’ll have good times with good company. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Understanding the needs of another takes time and attention. It also helps to have an attitude of non-judgment and the ability to resist jumping to conclusions. You will gain comprehensive knowledge of another person’s needs and will know how to meet them. You will build the relationship you want. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There are those who mistake you for another, through no fault of your own. Their history makes them see you in a par-

ticular way and attribute qualities to you that you may not possess. Your job is to gently educate these misguided souls by acting as your most authentic self. They will soon learn who you really are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There will be friendly invaders who shake up your personal system of law and order. The disruption is just what you needed to get the excitement and creative energy flowing through your world again. However, it is still a bit unsettling. You’ll be making adjustments as you go, trying to get comfortable again. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You will tell the future for a friend. Your objectivity allows you to readily see where things are headed. When it comes to your own scene, you are usually too wrapped up in it to know what is around the bend. However, Wednesday brings an air of detachment, and you will clearly view your destiny. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may get the looming feeling that you’re aimlessly drifting. Mostly this is due to low energy in general. You probably need more sleep or are cranky because you’ve been working so hard. You can rest and relax your way into an improved headspace. By Thursday, an exciting challenge will invigorate you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You know how much to reveal about yourself and what to hold back. You would be surprised at how many people get this wrong. Pat yourself on the back for this and a hundred other things about yourself that you take for granted. When you stop and think

about it -- and you should -- you’re pretty awesome. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You could spend hours learning about how to accomplish a task without ever getting the practical experience necessary to actually do the job. So when faced with the choice between a textbook, which can only give you theoretical knowledge, and hands-on experience, choose the latter and you’ll succeed. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re funny and humble; it’s true. You’re also being watched by people who can promote you and help you get where you want to go in life. That’s why selfdeprecating humor can hurt you these days. See yourself as wondrously designed, and don’t say a word that negates that opinion. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You will be in a position to decipher a message. Perhaps the one delivering it can’t communicate in a way you can easily understand. Keep in mind that this is probably a very simple or even primitive message, so don’t over-think it. Use your powers of empathy -- one of your super-strengths. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You have a realistic view of your life, and this allows you to make great things happen. Instead of wishing and pining, you do what you can do and turn the tides in your favor. The next seven weeks bring a breakthrough in your personal life -- a broken relationship will be healed or a mystery finally will be solved. Treasured friendships are featured in August, and you’ll be led to places you’ve never seen by one such tie. Financial luck is best in September and November. tws

Advanced penny-pinching


hy does anything “green” seem to be so expensive? Even the greenest among us may compost and recycle up a storm, but stop short of plunking down the cash for eco-diapers, earth-friendly cleaning products, organic foods, or vacation stays at eco-resorts. These higher-quality products may be worth it, but how can you be virtuous while avoiding the additional outlay? Penny pinching is a true art; read on, grasshopper, to attain the highest levels of this cult. Experts have distilled the essence of cheap down to just one word, and it will become your new mantra. No longer will you wrestle with the Shopping Devil, because the Shopping Fairy murmurs the golden word continuously in your ear, “Less!” Simply, buy less! Use less. Throw

away less, and less goes down the drain, in all senses. For example, you will buy less food, and use it up. No leftovers to languish; no forgotten veggies to rot in the crisper. After lowering the grocery bill, apply the difference to higher-quality organics. Don’t fret over choosing detergent, because now that you are running only full loads, you are using so very much less. Less water on the lawn (less lawn!) means a lower utility bill, and suddenly you can afford organic fertilizer for the new vegetable garden. Advanced penny-pinching proves that less, less and less equals more and more! Got a question or want to draft your own ERCbeat? Contact the ERC at or 726-4333. tws

A special Summer Volunteer Open House takes place on Wednesday, June 1 from 5:30–7:30 p.m. Mark your calendars and we’ll see you at The Hope Garden! Spring is here and The Hunger Coalition is preparing for a very productive growing season. The public is invited to join a variety of volunteer teams this summer. Come learn how a little of your time and energy puts fresh, locally grown produce on the tables of local families and individuals experiencing hunger. The Open House will be held at The Hope Garden, located at the corner of 1st Street and Walnut Avenue in downtown Hailey. Just one hour a week makes a real and tangible impact by promoting healthful eating, encouraging volunteerism, and increasing the nutritional intake of our community’s most vulnerable members. The Hunger Coalition hopes to recruit individuals, families and groups of volunteers to assist with a variety of programs. Volunteer shifts fall on all days and times, and children are welcome! Providing a week’s worth of groceries to an average of 235 individuals weekly, the Mobile Food Bank is the primary provider of food assistance to the general population in Blaine County. The Hunger Coalition relies on the help of committed volunteers to provide these essential services. Right now, they need your help. Thank you for getting involved and making a difference!

Team Bird Fanatics big counting day

Team Bird Fanatics is a group of four friends who have birded together for almost 10 years. Poo Wright-Pulliam, Kathleen Cameron, Jean Seymour and Dave Spaulding are passionate about birds, bird habitat and bird education and have decided to make IMBD their yearly event to raise money for EFTA (Environment for the Americas) and an Idaho nature entity of their choice. Last year they raised over $600 for EFTA and the same for the Idaho Nongame Wildlife Fund. This year their Idaho choice is The Idaho Bird Observatory located on Lucky Peak Mountain above Boise. Lucky Peak has a bird-banding station set up where they band not only hawks coming through during fall migration, but also songbirds and owls. See the IBO website at Team Bird Fanatics is asking for your help by making a donation of your choice or donate a specific amount for each species seen; i.e., if they see 111 species (last year’s amount), and you want to donate $.25 per species, you would be donating $27.75. They hope to raise $1500 this year and will donate half to EFTA and half to IBO. You can make a donation on their website at General?pg=entry&fr_id=1060 for up to two weeks after the event. They will also be tweeting and Facebooking during their big day to keep you all posted; you can be a virtual birder!

briefs Register now for SPACCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summer Performing Arts Conservatory Camp All Wood River Valley youth, ages 10-18, are urged to register for an unforgettable performing arts destination camp in the beautiful Sawtooth Mountains from June 27 to July 3. The Summer Performing Arts Conservatory Camp (SPACC) is a truly unique and exciting experience for pre-teens and high school kids that offers â&#x20AC;&#x153;majors and minorsâ&#x20AC;? in acting/drama, vocal/instrumental music, many forms of dancing, and Rock Band. SPACC is a program sponsored by St. Thomas Playhouse, a local community theater organization. Along with local

performing arts professionals, SPACC brings in three guest artists actively working in the performing arts around the country to instruct the kids. The camp is held at Camp Perkins, adjacent to Alturas Lake, and has its own beautiful lake for swimming and kayaking. Other outdoor activities such as rock climbing, hiking, and games are offered after morning classes. Fun-filled evening activities and arts and crafts are also scheduled for campers.

Morel mushroom hunting on Wood River Land Trust Preserves, open to the public Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s morel mushroom hunting season and the Wood River Land Trust has nearly 3,000 acres, including nearly three miles of access to the Big Wood River, that are open to the public and provide great areas to search for morels. Last year dozens of morel hunters found hundreds of mushrooms on our preserves. Mushroom hunting is a great family outing and a wonderful way to enjoy the spring weather and gather a great meal to boot. The Draper, Colorado Gulch, Boxcar Bend and Howard preserves are all great places to find morels. For directions to these preserves visit The best places to find morels on our preserves are areas where there has been a fire or where a tree has died or been cut. Morel fungi form a symbiotic relationship in the roots of trees and some plants. The morel fungi obtain carbon and other substances from the tree while helping the tree to take up water, minerals, salt and metabolites from the soil. Trees that have this symbiotic relationship with morels actually grow faster and are healthier than trees without the fungi inoculation. When a tree dies, burns, stresses or is cut, this disrupts the symbiotic


relationship and causes the fungus to withdraw from the roots, thereby forming hardened nodules below the ground called sclerotia. These sclerotia eventually swell in size with sufficient water and warmth and the morel mushroom eventually pops up through the ground in the spring. For more info on the Wood River Land Trust, visit or call (208) 788-3947.

Supplements: what works? Lots of claims, but little evidence

By Dan Fairman, M.D., Internal Medicine


mericans have a fascination with pills, and with medicines overall. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t there a pill for my belly fat? How about a pill to make me smarter? How about one to improve my sexual ability? Is there something that will make me stronger? How about living longer? Pharmaceutical companies have a tremendous financial impact on the economy, and the same can be said for vitamin and supplement manufacturers. In 2007, vitamins and supplements were a $25 billion business. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of money, but I think the biggest question with any medicine should always be: â&#x20AC;&#x153;But does it work?â&#x20AC;? Part of the answer to that question is in how you define efficacy. There are some studies for various supplements, but for many supplements on the market there are very few well-controlled studies that are helpful. Here is a partial list of supplements that I see in my clinic, in no particular order. Calcium: Calcium is very necessary and beneficial for women, to prevent or treat osteopenia/osteoporosis. Calcium is available in pills, liquids and drops, and as calcium carbonate, calcium citrate, or calcium phosphate. It can be obtained from dairy products, fortified juices, and vegetable sources. These different forms vary only slightly in absorption and side effects; spending extra money on Coral Calcium or other expensive brands doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really make much difference. Beware of claims (from any supplement) of â&#x20AC;&#x153;improved absorption,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;superior results,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;improved bioavail-

ability,â&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;improved cellular health.â&#x20AC;? Co-Q 10: To this date, the only disease that this chemical treats is co-q 10 deficiency, which is exceedingly rare. This drug has been considered for a number of heart diseases, but again has no efficacy for any heart disease. It may have some benefit for lowering blood pressure (although there are better and cheaper alternatives), but both the Mayo Clinic and Natural Standards give it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Câ&#x20AC;? grade, as there is little or unclear scientific evidence for its use. Vitamin E: The recommendation for the use of Vitamin E came from observational studies of the Mediterranean diet. This diet is high in antioxidant fruits and vegetables, in addition to favoring â&#x20AC;&#x153;healthyâ&#x20AC;? fats such as olive oil and smaller amounts of proteins. The diet lowers the risk of heart disease and cancer, possibly due to the antioxidant effects of Vitamins E and C. Well, the diet does work; the pills donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. In fact, supplementation with Vitamin E has actually been linked to higher rates of lung cancer and heart disease; the Mayo Clinic and Natural Standards give vitamin E a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Câ&#x20AC;? grade and in some situations a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dâ&#x20AC;? grade. Eating healthy is still the best source of antioxidants. Glucosamine Sulfate, with or without Chondroitin Sulfate: This compound may be of some benefit for knee osteoarthritis. There have been a number of well-done studies; some showing no benefit but some showing mild benefit in pain relief. The most recent trial which looked at radiographic (X-ray) progression found that glucosamine seemed to minimize cartilage loss over time. There

is little downside to glucosamine supplements; I tell my patients itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay to try it over a two- to three-month period. If there is improvement in symptoms, it seems reasonable to continue. If not, then stop taking it. So what do I tell my patients? I try to stick with proven recommendations. For cancer prevention, eat healthy, and avoid tobacco and excess alcohol. For heart disease prevention, eat healthy, exercise, and avoid tobacco, but have a drink a day.

lisabeth Pohle Ceramics is a unique, oneof-a-kind, hand-painted dinnerware line created and painted by the artist in the USA. It has been featured in several different publications and sold in over 100 stores. Elisabethâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s designs have also been licensed through multiple outlets from calendars, greeting cards and posters to dinnerware and accessories. Her favorite part of designing is working one on one with the client to create that perfect piece or set of dishes that they will cherish forever. Born and raised in Saratoga, Calif., Elisabeth grew up an avid equestrian and was very involved in 4-H, which inspired her whimsical farm animal designs. She is constantly amused and amazed by these beautiful animals and loves painting them onto dinnerware so everyone can enjoy them. In addition to her traditional designs, Elisabeth has created designs ranging from florals with birds, cowboy boots with American flags to seashells. Elisabeth was educated in Los Angeles and Paris in the fields of fine art, interior design and graphic design. After working as a textile designer for many years, her knowledge of pat-

tern design and artistic ability give her work a unique and joyful quality. Now living between Sun Valley and Manhattan Beach, Calif., Elisabeth enjoys being able to paint and be inspired by the beauty around her, including her two Pekingese dogs, Hobie and Puffer, who sit on the desk and supervise each piece.

The broomrape is a parasitic plant that needs to attach to a host-plant root in order to grow, according to Allison Kennedy Marks, who led the walk. The plant features dense wooly hairs and pinkish tubular flowers. The upper petals flare upward and outward while the lower ones form down-turned lips. The plant produces up to 40,000 pepper-like seeds. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a member of the figwort family, which got its name because some of the family mem-

Crisis Hotline Spring Wine Tasting

Planting Raspberry Bushes



he Crisis Hotline has been fielding triple the calls it normally gets for the last six months. Now, hotline volunteers are calling on the community to step up to the plate for one night to help out the hotline. The hotline is throwing its Fourth Annual Spring Wine Tasting and Silent Auction from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden. There’ll be live music from All Night Diner and wines from Holesinsky Winery, George IV Wines, Frenchman’s Gulch Winery and S&C Wines. There’ll be gourmet appetizers prepared by local chefs. And there will be an array of silent auction items offered by Ski Tek, Mountain Adventure Tours, Ski Summit, Bigwood Golf, The Valley Club, Hailey Yoga and other local businesses. Executive Director Sher Foster said the confidential hotline, which is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, is dealing with the same issues of substance abuse, domestic violence and mental illness that it has always dealt with. But the problems are amplified because of the poor economy. Foster said the hotline’s 16 trained volunteers have more than 400 resources to refer callers to for help, including legal aid and prescription drug assistance. The hotline also offers an outreach program to middle school and high school students. “We’re excited about Saturday’s event—it’s such a beautiful

orecasters are breathing easier about the potential for flooding in the Wood River Valley, despite an aboveaverage snowpack that remains in the mountains surrounding Sun Valley, said Vernon Preston, warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Pocatello on Friday. Preston told about 50 people who turned out for a Weather Spotters Workshop at the Community Campus in Hailey that mid-level snow at 7,500 feet has melted, which means the Big Wood River could rise only another foot, provided highs stay mostly in the 70s with only a few days in the 80s in coming weeks. Highs this weekend were in the 40s in Sun Valley with at least an inch of snow falling on

Sunday. Preston said there was 26 inches of snow on Dollarhide Summit between Ketchum and Featherville—seven more inches than 2006 when the Big Wood flooded in mid-May. There was 40 inches at Vienna Mine on the Stanley side of Galena Summit—11 more inches than 2006. The Big Wood sports 135 percent of its normal snowpack for this time of year. The Salmon River Basin is 182 percent of average and 272 percent of where it was in 2006. Blaine County Disaster Services Coordinator Chuck Turner didn’t seem quite as convinced that the threat of flood has abated. “Just remember who said that,” he quipped, pointing to tws Preston.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My husband has wanted a pool table since the day our son went off to college. He's convinced that he can convert my son's 10foot by 12-foot room into a billiards hall. Already, he's found a deal on a pool table in the classifieds but it's a 4-foot by 8-foot table. I have to imagine that it's too big for his makeshift billiards hall, but he won't listen. How much room do you actually need for a pool table? And what does it take to move it? Right now my husband's planning on recruiting his three friends to lift it up a flight of stairs on Saturday and be playing pool by Sunday.

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: I'm not sure who will be

more surprised with the new billiards hall: Your husband when he realizes the room is too small or your son when he realizes he'll be sleeping on a pool table. Carry: Unfortunately, it seems your husband is still in dreamland. A pool table of that size will not properly fit in a 10' x 12' room. Even if he gets it set up properly, he'd have to open a window to take a shot. Cash: Most table manufacturers recommend at least 5-feet of

Fast Facts Passing the Time

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 05/29/11 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

space around all sides of a pool table. That would mean that he needs a 14' x 18' space. Although most home pool tables have some sort of obstruction around them, your husband would have to make his trick shots from the closet. Carry: As for attempting to move the pool table, your husband is in for a big surprise. A typical table can weight between 500 to 1000 pounds and should never be moved in one piece. If he and his friends attempted to lift it up the stairs, they'd probably ruin the table. Cash: Most playing surfaces are comprised of three pieces of slate. In order to move a table and

not break the slate into pieces, it needs to be disassembled before moving. Even then, each piece of slate can weight 150 to 200 pounds each. Carry: Unless your husband has previous experience moving a pool table, it's best to leave the process to a professional. Setting up a pool table can be tricky since the slate surfaces need to be realigned and leveled properly before stretching the felt over them. Cash: Considering the room size, maybe your husband should look for another hobby, possibly one that still allows your son someplace to sleep.

In an age when sports have become more extreme than ever, billiards is still one activity that parents can rest easy about. According to the National Safety Council, billiards remains one of the safest sports with less than 1 out of 5700 participants getting some sort of injury. This seems like a safe alternative when compared to tackle or flag football. These sports average one injury for every 45 participants. However, it does seem that billiards may take some time to master. The average age of the champion is just over 35 years old.

Batter Up?

Many sports share terminology, but with terms like inning, foul and throw, you might think we were talking about baseball. In fact, these terms refer to a billiards game. Inning is actually a player's turn at the table, which in some pocket games may last for several racks. A foul is any infraction at the table resulting in a penalty, and a throw is a type of shot in which english or spin alters the path of the object ball on the table. â&#x20AC;˘

Reader Humor Knock Out

Ever since I bought a pool table, my brothers come over to joke around and play pool. It seems we can never stop laughing with each other. This past week while I was making a trick shot, my younger brother knelt down behind the pocket I was shooting at and made funny faces. I tried not to laugh and took the shot. Unfortunately, the cue ball bounced off the table and hit him right in the forehead. Immediately he fell to the floor and laid there for close to a minute. As he started to come to, my older brother and I asked him, "Are you alright? Do you know what just happened?" In his typical joking manner he replied, "Not really, I don't have a cue."
