Jennifer Biondi Blue Camas By KAREN BOSSICK


hey look like lakes of blue alongside Highway 20 north of Mountain Home. But they’re actually fields of star-shaped flowering blue camas. They grow in moist meadows and that’s why they can be found in great profusion in the Centennial Marsh near Fairfield. But they also can be found along creeks on Dollar Mountain and other nearby areas in the Wood River Valley. The plant can stand as tall as two feet with grass-like leaves. The sixpetal flowers, which range from pale lilac to deep purple, open a few at a time from the bottom upward revealing yellow stamens. The Shoshone and Bannock Indians used to harvest the bulbs in the fall, boiling them or roasting them in pits. Often, they’d dry them and pound them into flour with rock pestles. Added to bread and soup, the camas root would last them until the next spring when the hunting and gathering cycle started all over again. Other times, the Indians would mix them with crickets that they had driven into a trench and then set sagebrush afire on top, roasting the mix. The bulbs possess unbelievable protein with nearly three times the nutritional punch of an equal amount of liver. In 1878, white emigrants and camas combined to provoke Idaho’s last Indian war. The trouble started when Indians from the Fort Hall Indian Reservation flocked to the Camas Prairie for their annual bulb harvest, only to find pioneers’ hogs rooting out the camas bulbs despite an 1868 treaty that had set aside the prairie for the Indians. The Indians, who were starving because of the meager rations allotted them at Fort Hall, went on the warpath. Chief Buffalo Horn and a few hundred followers burnt haystacks and buildings in the area, prompting many of the settlers to flee to Hailey. The Indians burned wagon trains, stole horses and cattle and pillaged farms before Gen. Oliver Howard’s troops caught up with them at Steens Mountain in central Oregon. The ending of the Bannock War opened the door for miners and others to flock to the Wood River Valley. These lovely flowers, once mistakenly thought to be in the lily family, were a little late to show this year, thanks to the cool wet spring. But they reached their peak this past

A slice of heaven at Idaho Bike Ranch Photos & Story By KAREN BOSSICK

â€œâ€ŚI love teaching people front-wheel lifts and rear-wheel lifts and little tools they can stash in their pocket so they don’t have to get off their bikes when they encounter rocks or downed trees.â€? –Jennifer Biondi Head Honcho, Idaho Bike Ranch


ennifer Biondi has remade 160 acres of woods into a biker’s paradise with rollers, doubles, gaps and banked corners. Now she’s ready to take bikers by the handlebars and show them how to ride the planks, ladders, drop boxes, teeter-totters and A-frames she’s hid in those woods. Biondi is the head honcho at the Idaho Bike Ranch—Mark Baumgardner’s two-wheeled playground nestled on the South Fork of the Boise River in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. “It’s a great feeling to get up every day and do something you love in an area that resembles a slice of heaven,� said Biondi. “Working with excavators and designers to construct the pump park and BMX course was like a dream come true. And I love teaching people front-wheel lifts and rear-wheel lifts and little tools they can stash in their pocket so they don’t have to get off their bikes when they encounter rocks or downed trees.� Biondi was product manager for Bell Sports helmet and bike accessories in Santa Cruz, Calif., for much of her life. But when the Internet economy collapsed six years ago, she seized the opportunity to buy a house in Hailey and more fully engage in her pas-

sion for the outdoors. She had done sports all her life, attending San Jose State on a basketball scholarship, competing in a USSA slalom and boardercross series in the Tahoe area and surfing and skateboarding to abandon. But she found her calling at a mountain bike clinic at Whistler Ski Resort. “I learned so much I wanted everybody to learn what I did,� she said. It didn’t take her long to get her wish. By October 2009, she and Baumgardner were mapping out a plan for a bike ranch near Baumgardner’s heli-ski lodge between Ketchum and Fairfield. The Bike Ranch kicks off its second season today, sporting a new partnership with the Ketchum-based SCOTT USA. “They’ll provide demo bikes so that if someone is being held back by their bicycle, we can put the right wheels under them,� Biondi said. Biondi said the Bike Ranch will be a prime location for SCOTT and other bicycle manufacturers to do photo shoots and research and development testing away from prying eyes. And it will give bikers and non-bikers alike a chance to learn new skills that will kick their riding up a notch. Over the past few weeks, Biondi and Baumgardner have built more trails integrating

There’s more to this story: Read more about the Idaho Bike Ranch on page 6 ladders, A-frames and fallen trees—among them, a log that looks like a tuning fork. And Biondi just returned from Portland, where she checked out what the Beaver State had to offer. “Some of their stunts are more advanced. But we’re doing everything incrementally,� she said. “As we grow, we will introduce more advanced stunts. And some of those will come about because industry wants a certain stunt for a photo shoot or something like that.� Biondi says she hopes that the Idaho Bike Ranch will help put Sun Valley on the map as a mountain bike destination. “Sun Valley was one of the top mountain bike destinations 25 years ago when it hosted a national downhill mountain bike competition. But somehow it dropped off the radar. We want to change that—bring in people from other parts of the country, even other parts of the world,� she said. “At 46, mountain biking makes me feel young. And I want everyone to share in that feeling.�

he game of â&#x20AC;&#x153;hide and seekâ&#x20AC;? has taken on a whole new meaning for friends Ethan Shoemaker and Alex Baker, both age eight. The two, along with Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s younger brothers, Luke, 6, and Erik, 4, now play the game on a worldwide level of hiding and seeking treasure, known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;geocaching.â&#x20AC;? I guess you can call them experienced now, because in one day, with their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; help, they uncovered seventeen caches in the Wood River Valley. Geocaching really is a global game of hiding and seeking treasure. A geocacher can place a geocache anywhere in the world, pinpointing its latitude and longitude coordinates using GPS technology. The exact location of the cache is then shared online, and anyone with a GPS unit can try to locate it. On a spring Saturday threatening rain, the Baker and Shoemaker families of Hailey and Bellevue set out for Adams Gulch, armed with their GPS units and high hopes. They hiked to the top of a south-facing ridge that overlooked Ketchum, providing a great view of Baldy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We use the GPS unit to get to the general location of the cache, then the hunt is on for the boys,â&#x20AC;? says mom, Kathy Baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ethan found the first one hidden in some rocks. We were the first people to find this particular cache, which is a big deal in the geocaching world,â&#x20AC;? she added. Through a process called trilateration, a GPS receiver reads signals from at least three satellites at a time to calculate a general location. With more satellite signals, the GPS unit can get a more accurate position, including altitude and exact time. Competition between the boys is intense, but the best thing is the cache treasure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is always a race between the boys to be the first within our group to find the cache. At the end of the day they always

compare to see who found the most and hardest caches. It is amazing how motivated they are to find simple items,â&#x20AC;? says Kathy. Some of the treasures the boys found included matchbox cars, fast food kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meals toys, compasses, and carabineers. Another fun treasure was a special coin marked $5 off a meal at the Ketchum Grill. Kathy says that often in a cache, you will find what are called â&#x20AC;&#x153;travel bugs.â&#x20AC;? They are uniquely numbered metal tags that are logged online at Inside of a cache there should also be a logbook. It contains information from the owner; visitors can leave notes in it; and some information can prove to be rewarding and entertaining. The rules are simple: If you take something from the cache, you should leave something of equal or greater value. Geocachers record their findings in the logbook, and when they get back home, log their experiences at Five-year-old Luke said his favorite part of geocaching is finding the cache. That day, each of the boys located at least one by themselves. Several were found along Highway 75. The families also spent time locating treasures in Lake Creek and Eagle Creek canyons. They even hid their own cache that day. As the afternoon waned, the sun had finally come out, and dinner was calling at Despoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Afterwards, headed south out of Ketchum, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;seekingâ&#x20AC;? wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over as they located several more caches on the way home. At the end of the day, the boys negotiate and trade treasures and, hopefully, everyone goes home happy. Alex summed it all up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like to find the cache before my brothers or friends do, and trading stuff for cool toys. Another thing I like about geocaching is visiting cool places and playing in the woods and in the rivers.â&#x20AC;? Even with the sun coming out, it sounds like the day was pretty cool all the way around. tws

Diva: Theresa Richards By KAREN BOSSICK


heresa Richards would be up for Best Supporting Role if the Wood River Valley ever handed out its own version of the Oscars. The Hailey homemaker supported her late husband Art while he served as the Valley’s only dentist for many years. And later she took care of the couple’s eight children while Art built Rotarun ski area west of Hailey. For her efforts, Theresa will be inducted into the Blaine County Historical Museum Heritage Court at 3 p.m. Sunday at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey. An Iowa farm girl, Theresa studied at a hospital nursing school in Council Bluffs, Iowa. World War II had just ended, she recalled, and the only careers available to women were nursing and teaching. She was working in a hospital in Minneapolis when she met Art, who cleaned her teeth as part of his dental school regimen. Anxious to get away from “the flatlands,” Art made a trip through Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon, settling in the Wood River Valley where he could ski, hunt and fish to his heart’s content. “He wrote and said he’d found a job for me in Sun Valley and that he thought I’d like it. I moved here in 1953 and haven’t regretted it,” said Theresa. Theresa worked the winter at the Sun Valley Hospital on the third floor of the Sun Valley Lodge. The 10 beds were always full, thanks to ski accidents, she said. And when she and Art got married the following spring, one of the patients who had been laid up for several weeks with a broken leg volunteered his cabin near Hayden Lake for their honeymoon. The following winter, Art traded dental work with his patients—many of whom were ski instructors—to teach his bride how to ski. “They took me to a gentle slope on Baker Mountain and I thought I was on top of Everest,” Theresa recalled. “Then I moved to Half-Dollar, Dollar, then Baldy. The Ski Patrol used to offer me a ride down the mountain but I gritted my teeth and said, ‘I’m going to learn this!’” Hailey was a town of 1200 people then—the perfect size for a family that grew to eight kids in 11 years. “My kids played all day long and I never worried about them—everybody looked out for them,” Teresa said. Once the six boys got big enough, Art and Sav Uberuaga put them to work pulling up sagebrush on what would become Rotarun. “Even people who didn’t have kids went out to help,” recalled Theresa. “It was a great place to take the kids and watch everyone ski and get sunburned. I used to make cupcakes for the snack bar.” The Richards picnicked in Greenhorn Gulch before hiking

and biking trails were built there. Their children learned to swim at Hailey’s Hiawatha Hotel, Easley Hot Springs and Deer Creek. And Art coached baseball while Theresa fixed batches of spaghetti and meatloaf, vegetables from the huge family garden, and cake, pies, cookies and ice cream—often with raspberries, strawberries and apples plucked from trees and bushes outside their door. Even with eight children, Theresa managed to volunteer for 50 years with Chapter A.M. of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, a philanthropic organization that helped support women in college. She also served as a PTA officer, a member of the Blaine Manor Auxiliary and Sunday School teacher at St. Charles Catholic Church. Today, Theresa still lives in the tidy house across from Hailey’s Grange Hall that she and Art built in 1963 using plans cut out of a magazine. The home, which sits under three towering Ponderosa pines that Teresa planted as seedlings, boasts a china cabinet that once was her mother’s, afghans draped on nearly every chair, and an ironing board that Theresa still uses in this day of wash and wear. Her eight children, all of whom went to college, are now scattered around Idaho, Washington, Utah and Minnesota. They have 17 grandchildren among them. Theresa keeps an eye on the world from the overstuffed chair next to the front window as she regains her strength from chemotherapy treatments. “A nurse told me: Think of this as a journey you’re on. And it has been. I still meet my friends for lunch at Shelly’s Deli, Fresshies or Rasberrys—there was just one restaurant in Hailey when we moved here! And I’ve become closer than ever to my family this past year.” tws


Theresa Richards, Joanne Davis, Maxine Molyneux and Betsy Pearson will be crowned during an entertainment-studded ceremony open to the public at 3 p.m. Sunday at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey. With their induction, 34 women will have been named to the Court.

Scottish Festival Hailey Idol competition is this weekend begins Friday at the Spud By KAREN BOSSICK



hey’ll pass on the haggis. But you can count on men in kilts and the drone of bagpipes wafting through the Valley when the Blaine County Scottish Cultural and Heritage Festival premieres in Hailey Saturday. The all-day festival will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Nelson Field adjacent to Hailey Elementary School. It will feature dancing to bagpipes and drums, with a demonstration by Irish Dance of the Magic Valley, and Scottish tests of strength. It will also feature competitions between fire and police departments, as well as competitions between the various cities in the Valley. “We hope this will grow into a long-standing tradition,” said Heather Deckard, who heads up the Hailey Chamber of Commerce. “And you don’t have to be Scottish to participate.” At least 51 competitors have indicated they’re coming from as far away as Oregon, Montana and Utah, said Eric Ettesvold, who is organizing the event with Blaine County Sheriff’s Deputy Daniel Turner. “It’s a nice meeting place for everyone. And who doesn’t want to come to Sun Valley!?” said Ettesvold. Competitors will compete in an obstacle course designed to test speed and agility; an event that involves throwing a weight over a bar; an event throwing a weight for distance; a stone put; and something called the “Scottish hammer” where each competitor throws a shaft from a standing position. There’s also a tug-o-war and the famous caber turn—turning a telephone pole over and away. Ettesvold, who works in the heating and air conditioning business, got hooked on Scottish games when he and his family attend the Boise Scottish Festival three years ago. His favorite test is pitching a 56-pound weight welded to a ring over a bar to see how high he can throw it because, he says, it takes the

most technique and strength. “I’m closing in on 50 and this sport makes you so strong so quickly. It’s a serious sport—and it’s a growing sport,” he said. In addition to the adult competitions, there will be children’s competitions. Children will be assigned the task of climbing up and over and under three dozen hay bales and pick up two- to three-pounds stones and sprint to the finish, among other things. “Last year we had 120 kids come out for this. Those kids slept well that night,” Ettesvold said. You won’t find any haggis available for consumption. But barbecue and KB’s Burritos will be available for sale. Cost is $10 for those 14 and older. Younger children and members of PAL (Police Activities League) will be admitted free. Athletes can register online at events.php or at the event. Proceeds will go to the Blaine County PAL program. PAL is a crime prevention program in which police take kids on fishing and other outings to promote trust and understanding between law enforcement and youth. tws

Wood River Youth Football & Cheer FINAL SIGN-UP CHANCE!

e’re looking for a Superstar right here in Hailey, Idaho! “American Idol” may be the most watched TV series going. But “Hailey Idol” could be the most-watched phenomenon locally when it starts up this Friday. Music n’ Me is hosting the competition at the Wicked Spud in Hailey beginning at 6 p.m. this Friday. It will run July 15, Aug. 5, and Aug. 19, as well, with the finals on Sept 9. Contestants need not appear at all the contests. “I think it’s going to be a blast,” sadi Mitzi Mecham, who heads up Music n’ Me and Notes Music. “We’ll get a great big Idol trophy that the winner can hold. And we’ll frame the winner’s picture at the Wicked Spud. And they’ll get to own the stage one night in September.” There’ll be four categories: Age 7 through 10 for the “Small Small World” set. Age 11 through 14 for those who want to do Justin Bieber or Britney Spears. Age 15 through 19. And adults. “Rockin’ mamas. We want to try to get some rockin’ mamas out there,” Mecham said.“There’s a lot of mamas out there who are shower singers. We’re going to provide them with a sound system and three microphones and let them have at it.” Contestants can appear as individuals, duos or trios. They must provide their own guitar, snare drum or high hat. Contes-

tants can also bring an instrumental on iPad and plug it into the sound system. They can sign up ahead of time at Notes Music in the Yellow Brick Road shopping mall or the Wicked Spud. Or they can sign up the night of the competition. Contestants will be judged on their performance by Mecham, Scott Garvin of the band Hoodwink and a guest judge. “I’m going to be Paula or Jennifer Lopez—I’m going to be really nice. Maybe Scott can be Simon. It doesn’t matter wither they’re one singer or three—it will be fun and equal,” promised Mecham. Mecham said “American Idol’s” popularity is based on the idea that it turns nobodies into somebodies, taking someone who would probably never be discovered and giving them recording contracts. “It’s a tough business. I can’t even imagine breaking in without help. But I would rather listen to some of those girls on ‘Idol’ than Britney Spears. Some of the talent is great,” she added. Julie Wiethorn of Shelly’s Deli said she has never seen “American Idol” but she might be persuaded to check out “Hailey Idol.” “I think it’s great for the kids of the community because they’ve all seen ‘American Idol.’ And it’ll be fun for adults and families, too,” she said. Live band karaoke and live bands will appear on the other Friday nights through the summer. The next Live Band Kara-

oke night, for instance, will be held on July 8. Singers will get a play list that includes “Born to be Wild” and “Smoke on the Water,” and a live band will back them up. “I think it’s going to be the best summer ever with all this going on.

Ranch Ridin’ Photo & Story By KAREN BOSSICK


he term “walking the plank” takes on new meaning at the Idaho Bike Ranch. This terrain park features all the banked corners, doubles, gaps and rollers a bike rider could want for improving his or her riding skills. It’s the kind of stuff you see in sports films at the Banff Film Festival and the Telluride Film Festival. And it’s just plain fun, too. “This is really a gas,” says Bike Ranch owner Mark Baumgardner. “There are a lot of things you can do to improve your balance and cornering. You really note the difference when you hit a trail with its rocks and roots and stream crossings.” The site of an old mining claim, Baumgardner’s Idaho Bike Ranch features single track, a bicycle pump park and a terrain park of teeter-totters and other challenges. Bicyclists using the lodge as base camp can mountain bike to the ranch and spend the evening at the lodge, enjoying a ranch dinner and breakfast before heading back out the next day, taking advantage of shuttle service, if desired. And the ranch offers daylong skills camps and three-day bicycle skills camps, complete with lodging and meals. The rustic six-bedroom lodge, built out of dying tree milled in a small sawmill on the property, features a wood-fired hot tub and a sauna. It boasts an outdoor pizza oven and grill. Other meals include poached eggs with grilled asparagus and balsamic vinegar, pheasant and fish tacos with mango salsa. “It’s an awesome setup and you get to ride something different,” says Ketchum cyclist Brendan Coyle. The Bike Ranch’s head honcho, Jennifer Biondi, coaches Don Reiman as he takes his first few tentative dips in the pump park—a dirt amphitheater featuring banked turns and dips built out of dirt. “Keep your arms flexed, body low, knees bent,” Biondi tells him. “If you lift up as you crest a roller, you will launch yourself right off,” she said.

Even as she talks, Coyle wipes out as he attempts to corner a banked wall. He gets up grinning and shaking his head. “That’s alright,” says Biondi, who worked as a certified bike park coach at Whistler Ski Resort before taking on the Idaho Bike Ranch. “If you’re not pushing it, you’re not going to get better.” Biondi watches the bicyclists in front of her, assessing their ability. “Your bike is part of you. To use it most efficiently, you don’t want to be too far back or forward or it makes it difficult to steer,” she tells one of the riders. Eventually, Biondi takes cyclists to a wooded course featuring log bridges, drop boxes and teeter-totters. “Don’t look at the water. Look where you’re going,” she tells Reiman as he gingerly makes his way onto a narrow foot-high bridge over a creek. Reiman ‘s front wheel slips off the bridge at the end but he’s able to right himself before falling over. He practices on planks of varying heights spread out across the ground before returning to the bridge. This time it’s a slam-dunk. Michael and Jordan Niedrich of Bellevue practice riding over corduroy logs placed like an A-frame. Then they aim their sights on jumping off boxes. “Try doing the bunny hop with your bikes before you go off the drop boxes,” Biondi encourages them. “That way, you’ll get both wheels off the ground so you don’t land on your front tire and risk going head over the handlebars.” Jordan Niedrich zooms off the drop box, landing on both tires. “Awesome. There’s nothing like it,” he says. tws

Embrace the hot-rod aesthetic and be inspired to personalize your basic two-wheeler in this one-night workshop offered by the Sun Valley Center for the Arts that emphasizes style ahead of function. Hailey artist and bike enthusiast Bruce Kremer will walk participants through various trends in bike design—who remembers Stingrays and muscle bikes?—and show examples of extreme bikes that take cues from outlaw and outlandish imagery. The Bike Counterculture Workshop with Bruce Kremer meets Thursday, June 23, from 5 to 8 p.m. at The Center in Hailey.

The gallery opens on Thursday and thereafter will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays through Sept. 15. “I’m looking forward to it,” said Lisa Holley. “Each one of us will work one day a week and we will be working on our art during that time so people will be able to see us do it.” Twenty percent of the proceeds from sales will go to charity. Buyers will be able to earmark 20 percent of the purchase price of each piece to one of four charities: The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley, The Hunger Coalition, The Advocates and The Community Library. And there will be lectures demonstrations and trunk shows throughout the summer. Hailey painter Monica Bloedel, for instance, will discuss oils and watercolors July 17 through 23; La Posada Del Quide, woven goods, July 8-9;, and Rae Devito, sewing and design, July 13.

briefs Gasland showing at Library tonight Natural gas may provide a warm glow come to protect against winter’s chills. But the film “Gasland” presents some chilling images of people who believe they were sickened by attempts to extract gas from the earth beneath their homes. One woman said she even showers in the dark because she’s afraid a spark from her lightbulb will ignite a fire. The Idaho Conservation League

will host a free screening of Josh Fox’s movie “Gasland” at 6 tonight at The Community Library in Ketchum. The award-winning film is particularly relevant given the fact that there is talk of fracking in western Idaho. Because we have never had commercially viable natural gas development, Idaho lacks adequate regulations for this industry, said ICL spokesperson Brett Stevenson.

During the ceremony, Sadie was presented with the Ranking Scholar award and the Head of School honor. During a speech by science teacher Nikki Durkan, Sadie was recognized for her strong passion for learning, as well as embodying many of the necessary attributes to be an effective and inspiring leader. “Sadie is an innovative problemsolver. She cuts through the complex-

ity that so often overwhelms most of us to the point of inaction and she finds a solution. She is a creative and talented teacher who is eager to see her friends succeed. Not only does she serve as the school’s co-president, as well as the chemistry, geography, anatomy and history tutor, but she also became our manic training motivator, personal snowboard coach, pentathlon captain, and even started her own running club!” Sadie will work in Ketchum for the summer and then attend the University of Idaho in the fall.

And she needs plenty of it to be both in the National Guard and especially as the only woman last year to compete on the men’s wrestling team. “This was my first year and it was awesome,” she said. “It was really unusual to be a girl on the team. My goal was to make it through the complete season and to not quit. I made it and felt like anything was possible after that. Training for wrestling is also great training for the Guard. Some of the best soldiers were wrestlers. I wanted to see what the sport was all about and what I learned is that I can accomplish anything if I put my mind to it. The harder you work, the more your body will be able to withstand. It’s also different for me as a wrestler. When I go to the mat all I’m focused on is winning and not getting pinned. Guys have to worry about how they’re going to do this. If I win, I must be a jerk, but if I lose, I don’t want to lose to a girl.” About the Guard, she says, “It’s just another way of saying how much I love my country. I’m also gaining so much from it and the commitment of one weekend a month is extremely fair for having my college paid for.” Herrera was born in Delano, Calif., and moved here in the fourth grade. “My mom remarried a man who lived in the Valley, so we visited and then moved here.” Along the way, she has attended Hailey Elementary, Wood River Middle School and then the high school. “I just think it’s awesome here. I loved growing up here and I never want to leave. There is so much to do, like hike, bike and just be in the mountains. You kind of have to be an athlete to live here and all you have to do is just grab a ball and go outside. The size of the place is also perfect – not too big and not too small. It’s a lot easier for parents to keep an eye on their kids. I have siblings to watch and I can only be in so many places at one time. The downside is that there is a lot of gossip and that everyone’s in your business. The other problem is that when people hang out it’s easy to get alcohol and drugs. Some people think it’s the only form of entertainment.”

Juliana Mejia Herrera, above, was recently depicted as the modern community soldier on the mural inside the Hailey National Guard Armory.

When the subject is Wood River High School, Herrera absolutely gushes. “I love the high school and I really love the facility. In California, the schools didn’t have much. Teachers didn’t care and the desks and the classrooms were a total mess. They were torn up and old and written on. When you walked in early in the morning, you had no desire to learn. The classes were a lot larger and teachers were there just to take care of you – not to teach. Students here don’t realize the gift they have. It’s not only the staff but the technology and the materials they have to help you learn. You can stay after school and work on stuff on a computer and print stuff out and have something to print it on. People don’t know what an opportunity this is. It’s like attending an expensive private school. The teachers are amazing and actually care about you as an individual. They push you to be a better person and a student and they not only care about grades but about you as an individual. If you show that you are willing to learn, they are willing to help, no matter what. In school, I really liked government. I wanted to learn about politics, economics and how the federal government works. It was a real eye-opener for me. In my family we don’t talk politics but I got really interested. When I’m an adult this is going to be my world so I think I should pay attention to it.” tws If you know someone you’d like to see featured, e-mail

Saturn, the planet of responsibility and discipline, does an about face ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your education deepens this week as you commit to bettering yourself. Reading and listening to experts will teach you the theories behind why and how something works, but that’s not enough to make it work for you. Experience is your best teacher. Get practice “out in the field” on Friday and Saturday. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Someone will behave in a way that you cannot understand. This person seems to hang a question mark over your week, and you won’t give up until you understand the motive behind his or her actions and ultimately influence further action. This quest is to be continued next week. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll have an opportunity to make a stellar impression and a lifetime friend. Take a moment to compose yourself before every conversation. You can’t command power and respect from others if you’re not feeling them inside yourself. Note that Capricorn and Taurus people will factor prominently

this week. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are reasons why you don’t push for what you really want from another person. You sense that he or she is not ready to give it, and the last thing you want to do is come across as needy. Trust your intuition. Watch and wait until the timing is right. In the meantime, think of how you might sweeten the deal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You realize that when people don’t know where they stand with you, they work to win you over. You may have discovered this when someone you didn’t pay attention to kept trying to impress you. Now you’ll be more purposeful in the application of this principle, making yourself less available and therefore more desirable. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Moving with the times is not the easiest thing to do in a week like this one. The changes are coming rapid-fire, and you must stay on your toes to keep up. Eliminate excess baggage -- that will

The Punch line

free you up. Thursday, instead of reacting to whatever you’re given, you’ll finally be in a position of control. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When someone is struggling socially, you will step in and save the day. You’ll supply the words another person can’t seem to come up with, change the subject or find another way to pick up the conversational slack. People like you and invite you places because they trust that you won’t let things get awkward. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your moods may be all over the place. It’s like you’re a different person from one day to the next. Luckily, all of those people are pleasant to be around. Sometimes you’ll be curious, other times grateful and then excited, hopeful, compassionate... Positive emotions just keep flowing through you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You will be open to influence and extremely teachable. Take advantage of this high level of receptivity by surrounding yourself with the best and brightest people. Also, it’s a fantastic week for experimentation, especially the sort that will get you in touch with your imagination and the collective unconscious. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You will spend some time doing what doesn’t come naturally, and this can be frustrating, but it will expand you

in ways that will prove both important and necessary in the weeks to come. Because you make the decision to grow yourself, you’ll wind up knowing people you otherwise wouldn’t have met. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your energy may be scattered, but that is to be expected with one as creative as you. You are likely to start several projects at once, and in time, you will get around to finishing each and every one. Understand and accept that you’re not always going to do things in the way that others would. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You enjoy expanding your knowledge and thinking, and this is a good time to do so in a formal setting. A school or structured method of training will be well worth your investment of time, money and energy as long as the teacher and class are good matches for your current level and style of learning. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: This month you will try to bring a greater degree of order to your world and will succeed spectacularly in this endeavor. An opportunity presents itself because people see you as a person of action. Next month brings a wonderful and much-needed release from the limitations of normal life. August events will match your fantasies.

Fishing R epoRt

The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR JUne 15, 2011 By: Jim sanTa


ot a lot has changed in the world of fishing this week. With all the freestone w a ters high and mostly unfishable, the main conversation will still focus on Silver Creek. We can however report that there has been a subtle improvement in the fishing on the creek. The hatches and thus the fishing will tend to parallel the weather. On the few warm mornings we’ve seen, hatches of pmd’s and baetis have been a bit stronger and we’ve seen more fish coming to the surface. As the weather continues to improve so will the fishing. If you’re heading down to the creek your box should now include a good selection of pmd and baetis, midges, some small (16-20) nymphs, and a couple of beetles. The big talk this week will revolve around the brown drakes and when. It’s prime time and it’s imminent. This large mayfly also tends to prefer fair weather and we do have a couple of warmer evenings in the forecast. By the time you hear this hatch is on you may have missed the best of it, the only way to know is to go. Check out the public access points between highway 20 and Picabo any of the upcoming evenings and maybe you’ll get lucky and catch a good hatch. At worst, it’s a beautiful place in the evening and tends to be a great social outing. Remember to pinch your barbs, be gentle with your fish, be courteous to you fellow angler and enjoy your time on the water. Good (Free) Advice Main St. Ketchum 726.4501 Main St. Hailey 788.7847

he Woodman is back and he’s better than ever. At least that’s what the large, expensive, national ad campaign for Woody Allen’s new film Midnight in Paris would like you to believe. But after 41 films, has he ever really gone away? Not really, to anyone that is a fan of movies. It’s just impossible for all of them to be great and their individual attributes range in excellence. For this reviewer, the new film is pretty good but doesn’t rank with his best. The interesting fact is how Allen has taken his show abroad and left his beloved Manhattan for his recent slew of films. But he still loves a good city, as the new film showcases Paris in all her splendor. Perhaps it’s the cost of shooting in New York, or it could just be his wanderlust. But for this story, it must be Paris, as the film looks not only

at nostalgia but also allows us to go back in time and visit the city during its artistic heights of the 1920s. Like his previous, and better, films, The Purple Rose of Cairo and Radio Days, Midnight in Paris is a fantasy that allows us to look in on a famous point in history. How Owen Wilson, playing the conflicted Allen lead character, is able to time travel is not important. It is a simple suspension of reality. But Wilson pulls it off by showing his amazement at being in the company of people like Gertrude Stein, Ernest Hemingway and Scott Fitzgerald. Along the way, he meets Picasso’s mistress, played by Marion Cotillard, and begins a love affair that is in stark contrast to his engagement to Rachel McAdams in the real world. Wilson plays the blonde, blue-eyed version of Allen admirably, although it sometimes feels like a Cyrano moment with Wilson uttering the snappy, neurotic one-liners that Woody is famous for. The film has its funny moments but one would hardly call it a laugh riot. Instead, it is a sweet and nostalgic look at a legendary time and place. tws

Versatile vinegar


inegar is mildly acidic, non-toxic and inexpensive, making it a wonderful choice for household jobs. Rejuvenate your houseplants by neutralizing the hard water soil crust with 1/4 cup of vinegar per gallon of water. Remove the deposits on your shower head or sink sprayer by steeping in a bag of vinegar. Likewise, an occasional splash of vinegar will descale the dishwasher. On top of dissolving hard water deposits, vinegar is a powerful deodorizer. Rinse your oniony hands and cutting board with vinegar (the acidity also combats mold and bacteria.) Lunch box smelling iffy? Enclose vinegarsoaked bread in it overnight. Get sparkling windows from 1/4 cup vinegar plus one tablespoon cornstarch per gallon

of warm water (have you read those Windex label warnings?) and dissolve dirt and buildup from floors with vinegar in the mop water. For scrubbing, mix a salt/vinegar paste. Vinegar strips the lint film from laundry with 1/2 cup in the rinse cycle (and colors brighten because lint is gone). Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t replace that cruddy shower curtain liner; throw it in the washer with a few glugs of vinegar. Versatile, virtuous vinegar will smell like â&#x20AC;&#x153;cleanâ&#x20AC;? to you once you experience its value.

Be prepared for summer snake encounters

Ketchum Arts Festival - Meet the Artist Series

Michael Alcid



friend spied some rattlers skulking around out Croy Canyon recently, and asked me if she should go to Hailey’s St. Luke’s clinic for treatment, in the event one was to strike out and bite her. The answer is no, because the Hailey clinic is no longer an Urgent Care facility, and does not stock antivenin. However, St. Luke’s Hospital a few miles south of Ketchum does carry rattlesnake antivenin and has treatment available at all hours. When traveling in the backcountry, far from hospitals, it’s a good idea to pack a first-aid kit, and perhaps a snakebite kit. A key point to remember when a snake sinks its fangs into you or a friend (or Man’s best friend) is to not panic or run, because an increased heart rate will speed the flow of venom in the circulatory system. Try to calm down and stay hydrated, but do get far enough from the snake so it won’t try to bite again. It’s important to identify the snake, if possible, but use common sense and don’t try to catch the snake! Even if it is not a poisonous snake, you should cleanse the wound thoroughly, using warm water and antiseptic soap, before applying a snug dressing held by an elastic bandage. If feasible, carry the victim to the nearest available vehicle, before transporting him or her to the ambulance or hospital. If a rattlesnake bites you and you opt to drive to the hospital, rather than taking an ambulance, you would do well to call ahead, to tell them you are on the way, so staff can begin making preparations for your treatment. Occasionally, some hardy Westerners try to “cowboy up”


after receiving snakebites, telling themselves that it’s not so bad, and they forgo any treatment. Later, some come to regret this, as the area where they were bit, succumbs to a large amount of permanent tissue damage. Not only that, but since snakes subsist mainly on rodents, even non-poisonous snakes carry loads of filthy bacteria in their mouths which, with fang-bites, can lead to terrible infections. Some other key points to remember are: Do not apply ice to the bite wound. This will not slow the venom flow. Also, do not use your mouth to suck out the venom. The accepted wisdom used to be to use a snakebite kit to suction out the venom, but lately that’s been up for debate. Remove jewelry and other items, which may constrict with swelling. A few years ago, a friend exploring in the remote Owyhee Desert had a rattlesnake bite his dog in the head, which started swelling to the point where he had to snip off his collar, before they could reach the vet.

Some vital prevention tips regarding snakes are: Snakes like to avoid the hot sun by hiding under rocks or in crevasses. Stay away from reaching in there. When camping, zip up your tent the whole way, to keep snakes from slithering in. Shake out shoes and clothes before dressing. Be a noisy walker to scare snakes away. Local lore has it that rattlesnakes are seldom seen above 5,500 feet. Although this may be a good rule of thumb, it’s not absolutely true, as snakes do not have altimeters built into their brains and, depending on climate conditions, sometimes creep upwards to 7,000 feet and higher. Snakes also like to gravitate to old abandoned mining operations. Much of this has been covered before in local newspapers, but it’s helpful to remind folks to be serpent-wary, with the plentiful number of outdoorsy types constantly exploring here during our high snake season.

Valley Paint & Floor


i – my name is Michael Alcid. I am the designer and craftsman of “The Life of Wood.” Twenty-five years ago I began creating boxes and furniture for myself and friends. I appreciate and respect wood for its natural qualities and the unique character it creates with its variety of color and grain patterns. I enjoy fine details in choosing and crafting wood for its specific purpose. Boxes are my favorite to craft, as I experience the unity of design, creativity and

function with each box. In the process of crafting a box, I have the vision of new forms, which then transform into new expressions. My experience has moved toward a simple yet elegant style that can be seen throughout my work. Every box is a unique piece, with its own story of wood and craftsmanship. Some of them I cherish most for being a “mistake,” which led me to a new discovery. Experience Michael Alcid’s wood creations at the Ketchum Arts Festival, July 8-10.

Club gives away money By KAREN BOSSICK


hey have a Halloween social in which they dress up in witch’s hats, and a picnic on the symphony lawn. And in between, these 70 members of the Little Black Dress Club of the Wood River Valley give away money to deserving organizations. Sharing the mantra, “Making Philanthropy Fun,” members donned their little black dresses last week and turned out for a cocktail party at CIRO Market to give away $11,431 to six local organizations. Recipients were: • The Crisis Hotline, which deals with one of the highest suicide rates in a state that has a second highest suicide rate in the nation. • The Hunger Coalition to develop a workstation where clients can put resumes together. • Girls on the Run, which recently expanded into Wood River Middle School, for its Lunafest film festival fundraiser. • The Animal Shelter, which is introducing no-cost spaying for those who can’t afford it. • Habitat for Humanity, which is looking at buying two properties to renovate and then help people get into those homes. • The Wood River Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness for a projector and equipment for making photocopies. Deer Creek resident Lynn Campion-Waddell founded the organization in 2009 as a way to make philanthropy available to younger women who might not be able to donate $1,000 a year to the Wood River Charitable women’s Foundation, which was already in place. Each member of the Little Black Dress Club pays annual

dues of $300 in monthly installments of $25. And each votes on the organizations to fund twice a year. “I thought there was room for it in the valley,” said Campion-Waddell, who is involved in several philanthropic endeavors. While giving is key, social interaction is a big attraction said Club President Rain McDonald. “This is a very diverse group. I grew up here and it was so refreshing to walk into Lynn’s house at the first meeting and find that I knew only two other people,” she said. “And it’s exciting to see what you can do a lot without a large commitment of time or money.” Kristy Logan, who owns Willow Papery, said the club is a good way to learn to be a part of something: “And I’ve loved learning about the organizations.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My neighbor recently asked if we wanted to have a multi-family yard sale together. This could have been convenient since we were planning a sale for the same day, except for one dilemma. My neighbor is obnoxious! We would rather give away our things than be forced to spend an entire day with him. Not only would the sale be a disaster, but I know that he would suggest holding it at our house since we have the corner lot. I'd pretend to go on vacation that weekend, but that Saturday is the only day we have available to hold the sale. Any politically correct suggestions on how to get out of this?




Cash: I take it from

your scenario that your neighbor doesn't know how you feel about him. Carry: It's true what they say; "You can't pick your family or your neighbors." However, you can plan around them. Cash: Personality conflicts are a common problem in neighborhood sales, and families for that matter. However, your situation has a few solutions. Carry: You could be upfront

Fast Facts Charity at Home

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 06/12/11 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

with your neighbor and tell him how you feel. However, considering you've avoided that conflict for this long, that's probably not a route you'll choose, and probably not the "politically correct" solution you were looking for. Cash: You could cancel your sale, donate your items to charity and go on a long weekend away. But again, possibly not the solution you wanted. Carry: So if you still want to hold your sale and not spend the day with your neighbor, encourage him to hold individual sales on the same day. It's actually much easier for everyone involved, including the customers.

No one will have to worry about tracking finances or mixing up items between families. Cash: To make your day even more successful, consider rallying other neighbors to get involved and turn it into a block sale. Carry: More families means more people to help advertise around town. Plus, garage sale shoppers love to go to one neighborhood that is having multiple sales. Cash: Fortunately you're on the corner lot, so your sale is sure to get high traffic. And who knows, maybe you can sell out by lunchtime and still get away for the weekend.

Reader Humor Designer Duds

If you've held a large neighborhood sale, you know that not every one of your items may sell by the end of the day. And your neighbors might be in the same situation. However, before everyone starts packing the remaining items back into the already overcrowded garage, consider donating them to a local charity. If you can coordinate your neighbors to gather the items together, many charities will send a truck to pick up your donations.

Last weekend my husband and I stopped at a neighborhood yard sale to see if we could spot any bargains. While I was looking around, my husband sifted through the clothes rack. Later, I found him standing in front of a mirror wearing a navy blue jacket. He pointed to the emblem on the pocket and said "Look honey, it must be a designer label. It has 'FCI' printed on it." I laughed as I turned him around so he could see the back of the jacket in the mirror. He was surprised to see the large yellow print that said, "Federal Correctional Inmate."

Multi-Family Event

If you're holding a neighborhood sale, then early birds are almost guaranteed. So rather than get upset when they show up early, just be prepared for them. Set up all your items on tables the night before the sale and keep them in your house or garage. In the morning you can just move them outside and you're done. Besides, if you're set up early enough, you can be the first to shop your neighbor's sales and find a few things for yourself. â&#x20AC;˘
