Hailey’s Fourth of July Activities Kick Off This Saturday FOR THE WEEKLY SUN

ailey, Idaho, is known around the region for its spirited Independence Day celebration. This year the town will host five days of events and activities over the holidays. The summer antique season kicks off the weekend with two shows in the City of Hailey—the Fourth of July Hailey Antique Market in Roberta McKercher Gateway Park, located across from the airport on S. 3rd Ave., and Hailey’s Main Street Antique Show, located on the north end of Main Street. Both shows will run through Monday, July 2. The Sawtooth Rangers Days of the Old West Rodeo is the perfect way to celebrate a Western-style Fourth of July. The rodeo will take place Monday, July 2, Tuesday, July 3, and Wednesday, July 4. Pre-rodeo shows begin at 6:30 p.m., with the rodeo starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available for purchase at the Hailey Chamber of Commerce, Atkinsons’ Market and, if not sold out, on site at the event. Hailey’s activities start bright and early the morning of Wednesday, July 4, with the traditional Cub Scout Pack #87 Pancake Breakfast at the Upper Big Wood River Grange Hall on S. 3rd Ave. This popular event will take place from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m. Beginning at 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. a children’s carnival with inflatable rides and games and water fun will be hosted on Main Street by Spirit ‘n’ Motion Athletic School. Tickets are $10 for all you can ride all day long. Bring your swimsuit! At 10:30 a.m. the Sun Valley Brewery will host live music by “Swagger.” The Hailey Fourth of July Parade starts at noon. This year’s theme is “Let The Good Times Roll!” The Hailey Chamber Fourth of July Committee has been hard at work recruiting new entries to liven up this traditional parade. “Right now we have about sixty entries, and quite a few entries come in the last few weeks before the parade. We are excited,” said Geegee Lowe, Hailey Chamber Visitors Center manager. The committee wants to stress safety to the public. Candy will not be given out during the parade until the very last entries. “The last few years candyseekers along the parade route have created some major safety concerns. The parade won’t be fun for anyone if there is an injury to a child. We are asking the public to stay on the street perimeter and to not approach the entries for candy. Candy will be given out at the very end when volunteers will pass out candy to children that are on the sidewalks.” This year the Hailey Chamber Fourth of July Committee honors Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl as parade grand marshal.

icyclists in Sun Valley are tasting Forbidden Fruit. And they’re loving it. The Forbidden Fruit trail, which opened last summer in the Adams Gulch area, is a new-generation mountain bike trail taking advantage of gravity to thrill even the biggest adrenaline junkies. The single-track trail is crammed with rollercoaster-like dips, drops and lugelike berms that bicyclists can bank off of so they’re hanging almost horizontally over the trail for a split second. And the 1.3-mile one-way trail is closed to other uses, allowing bicyclists to go downhill unimpeded without worrying about meeting a hiker coming up the trail. “It’s really like a bobsled run,” said Sun Valley ski instructor John T. Smith. “The idea is to use your brakes and pedals as little as possible and just go with the flow.” The Bureau of Land Management opened Punchline—a 1.3-mile bikespecific single-track flow trail in the sage-studded Croy Canyon just west of Hailey—last summer, as well. The two trails compliment some 400 miles of single-track that crisscross the mountains and valleys south of Galena. And they represent the wave in a new era of mountain bike trail building. Sun Valley Resort is working with Randy Spangler of Trail Solutions and Chris Leman, a Ketchum cyclist who has worked on trails around the country, to create a world-class mountain bike playground on Bald Mountain. The resort has proposed seven new multi-ability trails and two remodeled trails that would be part of the only dedicated machine-built trail network in the United States, according to Julian Tyo, a member of the Sun Valley trail crew that built the course for the 2011 and 2012 USA Cycling Mountain Bike Cross-Country National Championships on Baldy. String a few of the proposed trails together and you’ll have a 9.6-mile downhill flow trail, which would be the longest in the United States, said Tyo, who hopes trail building can begin next summer.

Twenty-four miles to the north, officials with the Sawtooth National Recreation Area are doing environmental assessment of a proposed summer trail network for mountain bikers and hikers that would take users out of wetlands and into prime view corridors. The trails would include trails that Grandma and the grandkids would enjoy hiking, as well as some that would lead users past the old Galena smelter and other sites of historical interest. “The area around Galena Lodge offers some remarkable views but the old mining roads don’t,” said Eric Rector, who hopes his Blaine County Recreation District can begin work on the trails next spring. “Some would follow parts of winter trails; some would be reroutes of

Das Barbecü Will Fill Your Belly With Laughter BY KAREN BOSSICK

t pairs Wagner’s “Ring Cycle” with strains from the theme to “Bonanza.” It combines the Norse mythology of Siegfried and Brunnhilde with the familiarity of J.R. and “Dallas.” It’s got the pompous grandiosity of Texas, with big hair, big dresses and even bigger cowboy hats. In short, “Das Barbecü” is a three-ring circus. “Think ’39 Steps’ with music and Texas drawl, opera and folklore,” said Director R.L. Rowsey, referring to the melodramedy that Company of Fools staged two summers ago. “It’s a lot to pack into two hours.” Company of Fool opens “Das Barbecü” July 4. It runs through July 28 at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey. The play looked simple on paper, said Rowsey, what with five actors, five musicians and a debut in a regional theater. But as the Fools got into it, they realized it was much bigger, with five actors playing 32 characters, each with a different costume. “Not only do the characters have to speak in a different voice, they have to sing in differ-

ent voices and different genders,” said Rowsey.”This play is based on the grandest of tales. It’s told from the largest of hearts and with the greatest of passion, so there’s nothing little about this one.” The plot is convoluted, to say the least, says Mike Tilford, who plays in Jim Luigs and Scott Warrender’s zany spectacle, along with Debra Wagoner, Rachel Abrams, Duke Lafoon and Beth Hilles. But if you must know, it involves a guy who has a ring and a girl and some scheming connivers who want the ring. Its characters include a lisped, psychically gifted triplet and a one-eyed king of gods who is slightly irascible and wants to do right but finds it so against his nature. Those who know opera will recognize bits and pieces from Richard Wagner’s “Das Rheingold,” “The Valkyrie,” “Siegfried” and “Gotterdammerung.” Those who don’t will enjoy it anyway, actors say. “It shows the silly things about opera. At the same time, it shows what’s great about opera,” Tilford said. Joe Lavigne has built an ambitious playground on stage that includes an ore cart that rolls on

tracks out of a mine, a wooden water tank and a cantina with Western swinging doors. The band, made up of Rowsey, Jim Watkinson, Max Stimac, Alyssa Hershey and Ted Dyer, will sit on the rooftop of the cantina. Lavigne said he got the idea from a buffalo diorama in a museum in his hometown of Milwaukee. The Las Vegas look also played into it. “Everything’s there that’s necessary but it’s not real,” he explained. The back of the set is even more intricate with mazes of runways, staircases and five dressing cubicles. “As fun as it is on stage, it’s even funner back there because actors are going in one door and coming out another,” said Wagoner, whom Company of Fools devotees will remember from her portrayal of Patsy Cline. “It’s more tightly choreographed back there than here. But that’s so fun for an actor—it makes two hours feel like 15 minutes.” John Glenn and Wagoner scoured the Internet for suede Western jackets, sequined cowboy vests, horned hats and a bunch of boots and wigs. They even tapped into a church lady’s website for three dresses with

matching hats. Three dressers will help the actors shed and pile on clothes— using Velcro, since no one has time for buttons! The musical overture is almost as big as the state of Texas, Wagoner said. “It offers that swell of pride you know that causes Texans to get that big puffed-up chest and an instant smile,” she added. Though two hours long, Fourth of July revelers will be

ary Peterson’s roots stretch deep into the fabric of Carey. Her grandparents came from Utah around 1910, looking for a good Mormon community in which to settle. Her parents attended the same Carey school she did. Her children followed, and since, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren have attended Carey School as well. Her grandfathers hauled concrete to build the Fish Creek Dam—one doing so by horse; the other, by truck. Her father helped build the highway that runs through Carey, in addition to carrying the mail to Muldoon three times a week. Mary, who was inducted into the Blaine County Museum’s Heritage Court on Sunday, was born in Carey 81 years ago in 1931. She grew up on a small farm the family had at the north end of Carey against the hills, playing games of tag and softball with her five brothers and sisters. During World War II, when the men were gone, Mary helped put up hay on her family’s farm, using a team of horses. Then she pitched in to help the neighbors. “Nobody sat around doing nothing in those days,� she recalled. “Carey was a small town—just a couple of restaurants and two stores—although that’s more than they have now.� Mary was 19 when she married Jim Peterson. He had grown up in the nearby town of Muldoon but his folks had a lambing shed and home across from Mary’s family’s farm. The two attended school together but

didn’t start going together until Mary had graduated. “I drove a tractor for his dad,� Mary recalled. The family joke is that his dad decided to give me Jim instead of pay me. I’ve decided I got the better deal,� said Mary, who celebrated her 62nd anniversary with Jim this year. The newlyweds cleared 80 acres of sagebrush on Little Wood River Reservoir Road, two miles from where Mary had grown up. Eventually they expanded it to more than 200 acres and added a farm in town. They raised Coors barley and alfalfa, and sheep, which they wintered in Blythe, Calif. “When we shipped the lambs, I’d make cinnamon rolls and everyone would come and guess the weight of the sheep,� said Mary, who is famous in Carey for her sweet rolls. “I’ve probably walked over most of the country out here— from the desert to the top of the mountains—in the 30, 40 years we grazed the sheep. People seemed to enjoy what they were doing in those days. Anymore, people don’t seem to enjoy their work the way they used to. They’re too hurried.� The Petersons raised three

children—Jim Jr., Karl and Carol, which kept Mary busy with PTA, Cub Scouts, teaching Sunday School and 4-H. It was the Blaine County 4-H Leaders Council, in fact, that nominated her for the Heritage Court. She also presided over the American Legion Auxiliary, volunteered with the Progressive Club of Carey and was state president of the Idaho Wool Growers Association for three years, helping with state and national conventions. “One year Jim and I chaperoned 40 girls attending Nationals at the San Diego Zoo. Jim thought that was really something,� she said. “I also used to organize the Make-It-YourselfWith-Wool competition in which girls would construct outfits and were judged on how well they

Doggie Boutique for Vets BY KAREN BOSSICK

M

embers of the Ketchum American Legion Women’s Auxiliary are staging a unique doggie boutique Saturday, June 30, to raise money to train service dogs for wounded Idaho veterans. The “Dollars for Dogs” fundraiser will feature small fine furnishings, high-quality artwork, jewelry, crystal, linens, home décor accessories, mountain chic clothing and more. The sale will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the David Ketchum Post No. 115 American Legion Hall, 220 Cottonwood St. in Ketchum. There will be a $5 donation entry fee. Julia Couch said the Auxiliary started raising funds to train service dogs a couple of years ago. It costs between $3,000 and $5,000 to train each dog, a process that takes between two and four months.

The Auxiliary uses Companion Training in Boise, which so far has paired a golden retriever named Molly, a black Lab named Lucy and a boxer named Jet with three vets. “We want to continue this program because there’s a huge need,” Couch said. “Returning vets who have severe post traumatic stress disorder have huge issues with anxiety and depression that sometimes prohibit them from leaving home. Dogs can be lifesavers for those vets because they can calm them and watch for signs that they’re about to have an episode. “And some vets have brain issues, which affect their balance, and they need the dogs so they don’t fall down.” The Auxiliary will accept donations at the hall from 4 to 5 p.m. today through Friday or by appointment (208-622-3736). tws

UPHILL TREND, from page 1 existing roads. A lot of the roads are in such bad shape we can’t redo them anyway.� The trail building is part of a push to make Sun Valley a top destination for bicyclists. Even the pump tracks in Hailey and Ketchum have become big attractions. “The pump park in Hailey gets as many as 200 users a day— just a constant flow of bicyclists,� Rector said. Just as new as the pump parks are the flow trails. The concept of flow trails has been around for 10 years but only as bootleg trails in forests or someone’s backyard. One of the first legitimate trails was built at Whistler, B.C., about five years ago. Now there are multiple flow trails in two dozen locations nationwide, according to the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA). And they’re all designed to attract many of the nation’s 7.1 million mountain bikers. Workers for the BLM, Ketchum Ranger District, IMBA and Trail Solutions put a Sweco trail dozer with a four-foot-wide footprint to work, along with a mini-excavator, on the local trails. “The banked turns resemble a super-speedway,� said Leman. “It’s an exhilarating experience. You can jump off a lift over a tabletop. And, if you don’t clear the flat top, you can set your bike down without any bad consequences. And you can jump rollers one or two at a time depending on how fast you want

to go.� Both of the new trails in the Sun Valley area are considered intermediate to advanced. Forbidden Fruit is considered a little more advanced with larger features. Punchline has a smoother surface with a few rock drops. Each turn links into the next, with each raised feature placed so that it flows with the trail leading into it, said BLM Recreation Planner John Kurtz. Deanna and Vince Sydlosky checked out the temporary signs posted at Forbidden Fruit cautioning first-time riders to go slow as they prepared to embark on the trail for the first time. The Sydloskys were real estate agents in Florida when they decided to buy a home in Sun Valley nine years ago. “We were drawn by the mountain biking,� said Deanna Sydlosky. “Florida has some technical riding around its phosphate mines. But the mountain biking here is unbelievable.� A few minutes later, Deanna was liking the Forbidden Fruit she was riding. “It’s a little spooky going up on the banks. But that’s why you take it slow the first time around,� she said. Having ridden Forbidden Fruit, John T. Smith says he prefers old school riding trails. “But the new trails are fun,� he said. “And they’re awesome for the new school riders who like technical riding.� tws

TO GET THERE

To get to Forbidden Fruit, drive north out of Ketchum along Highway 75, turning left onto Adams Gulch Road across from Bigwood Golf Course. Follow this to the Adams Gulch trailhead. Bicycle two miles on the Adams Gulch Loop dirt trail until you come to a fork. Take the trail to the left, which leads to Eve Gulch. You’ll see a temporary sign marking the exit for the trail first. Continue on the original trail until you come to a small clearing with a sign marking the beginning of Forbidden Fruit trail. To get to Punchline, turn west from Hailey’s Main Street onto Bullion Street. Follow this a few miles out Croy Canyon to the vicinity of Rotarun Ski Area. The flow trail can be accessed between the Croy Creek trailhead and the Wilson trail.

GET A LIFT

Lift-served mountain biking accessing 28 miles of trails on Bald Mountain started June 22. A single ride up the lift for an adult is $25 and an all-day pass is $30. Kids’ passes are discounted. Before you go, pick up a Sun Valley Resort trail map at the desk at River Run Lodge.

Bike Racers Gear Up for Big Week STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

A

n estimated 1,500 mountain bikers are expected to descend on Bald Mountain this coming week when the USA Cycling Mountain Bike CrossCountry National Championships return to Sun Valley for the second year in a row. “Every pro in the country will be there—they’re all coming,” said Greg Randolph, general manager for the Sun Valley Chamber of Commerce. That includes Heather Irmiger, Lea Davison, Todd Wells, Jeremy Horgan-Kobelski, Stephen Ettinger, Sam Schultz and Adam Craig. Plus the local favorite, Georgia Gould, who lived in Ketchum for several years before taking up residence in Fort Collins, Colo., with her husband, Dusty. Gould will compete in the nine-day event before heading to London where she has been named to the U.S. Olympic women’s mountain bike team. Last year’s event drew 1,100 racers plus family and support crew—a boon for an event that had seen lackluster attendance up until it moved to Sun Valley. Two-wheel mania gripped the area as riders poured into the Valley from places like Hackettstown, N.J., and Fair Oaks Ranch, Texas. Anyone without a bike rack on top of their rig felt a little naked. “The word got out about how good an event it was last year so I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see a 15 percent increase over last year,” said Randolph. “Everyone was telling me how impressed they were with our venue. They loved the community—they felt so welcome. And they used words like ‘stoked’ and

‘awesome’ to describe the trail rides.” Those who do come will find a couple new events added to the combo Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival/USA Cycling MTB XC National Championships schedule. The Galena Grinder, which starts at 9 a.m. June 30 at Galena Lodge, is the last chance for riders to qualify for the championships. The Super-Duper D on July 1 will be the first ever race from the top of Baldy, said Randolph. It is “a steeper, deeper downhill” that encompasses more than 5,000 vertical feet of downhill coupled with a thousand feet of climbing before ending at Apple’s Bar & Grill on the Warm Springs side of the mountain. A party will follow at Apple’s. That race will be used to seed riders in the championship races on July 8. In addition, the amateur cross-country on July 5 has been reconfigured to follow the Cold Springs trail to the Warm Springs loop before dropping back into River Run. The new loop should be easier for those who are trying out cross-country racing. Two off-road para-cycling events will make their debut in the national arena during the event. An off-road hand-cycle race and an off-road two-wheeled competition will be staged on the short-track cross-country course July 5. The Fat-Tire Criterium, which thrilled spectators last year as racers lapped Sun Valley Road, Leadville Avenue, 4th Street and Walnut Avenue, will return for an encore performance at 6 p.m. July 3. It’ll kick off with a costumed four-person relay for

Mad Max glory. A Road Bike Criterium will follow the Fourth of July parade in Hailey at 1 p.m. Even youngsters can strut their stuff at the Idaho Pump Track Stage Championships from 6 to 8 p.m. July 2 at the Ketchum Bike Park at 4th and Washington streets. The third annual event features riders four and under through pro. And a free kids race for youngsters three through 12 starting at 6 p.m. July 6 at River Run Lodge will offer enough medals and prizes that every kid is sure to go home with something. The River Run lawn will be the place to be for many of the events, as riders pick their way down the treacherous rock fall built under the gondola. There’ll be a barbecue there and beer garden and live music to provide a festive atmosphere with which to watch the races. Janelle Connors, who raced sporadically when she was younger, turned out for the race because it was in her backyard. “It felt crazy to be around all these big races on trails we ride all the time,” she said. “The rock fall was very exciting. You get amped up, pick a line and go for it.” “It was an incredible experience,” added Eric Rector, who oversees trails for the Blaine County Recreation District. “It brought thousands of pairs of new eyes who had no idea what we have here.”

For the Spectators

The bike races provide plenty of exciting spectator opportunities. But there are a number of other events that even non-racers can get involved in, from group rides to concerts and a film and photo fest:

Free guided Ride Sun Valley Local Stoker bike rides meet at Sun Valley Visitor Center. The July 2 ride meets at 8:30 a.m. and heads to Red Warrior and Greenhorn Gulch; the July 3 ride meets at 8:30 a.m. and heads to the “Edge of the World (Baker Creek to Oregon Gulch)”; July 4 ride meets at 9 a.m. and takes in the Greenhorn, Mahoney and Cow Creek trails; July 5’s ride meets at 9 a.m. and heads to Curley’s near Easley Hot Springs; and the ride on July 6 meets at 9 a.m. and heads to Fox Peak. The Sun Valley Fat-Tire Bike Film and Photo Fest will be held at 6 p.m. July 5 at Whiskey Jacques’ on Main Street, Ketchum. Tickets are $10 and include a free beverage, door prizes and a “Fat-Raf” that includes such prizes as a fat-tire cruiser, sunglasses, jerseys, camera bags, bike accessories, apparel and more. Tickets are available at Sturtos bike shops in Ketchum and Hailey. Free live music will be presented by El Stache at 7:30 p.m. July 5 at Ketchum Town Plaza. The Sun Valley Shakedown, a ticketed concert featuring soul rockers JJ Grey & Mofro, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band and DJ Logic, starts at 6 p.m. July 7 at Festival Meadows on Sun Valley Road. Tickets are available at Atkinsons’ Market or online at www.sunvalleyshakedown.com. There also will be a free Consumer Expo from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 5, 6, 7 and 8 at the River Run parking lot. Finally, the Wood River Bike Coalition is hosting an evening with cycling’s super-stars to raise money for its trail-building projects. The reception and dinner will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, July 5, at Elkhorn Springs Restaurant. Dinner will be served by Chef Biju Thomas, who co-authored “The FeedZone Cookbook” and has cooked for some of the top pro cyclists. Tickets are $100, available by calling Janelle at 208-720-7427 or e-mailing wrbcfundraiser@gmail.com.

This Book is a Fast-Paced Page Turner BY MARGOT VAN HORN

2030 by Albert Brooks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 2011/384 pages

F

eatured in the 6/18/12 edition of The New York Times in the Opinion Sec-

tion: Opinion: Room for Debate: Life after the healthcare ruling: What will the future hold if the Supreme Court strikes down the most controversial part of the health care law, the individual mandate? National healthcare is a hot topic. We all talk about it. We all worry about it. We complain about it. We are affected greatly by it. And yet, the question always boils down to this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;What

can we do to make it good and reasonable for everyone?â&#x20AC;? So, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a book that was introduced to me a while ago and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to get it out of my head. So when I saw this New York Times Opinion, I thought that I really wanted to suggest it to my readers via my bi-monthly column in The Weekly Sun. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a book that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put down. It made me laugh, it made me empathize, and the solution, of course, was brilliant. Leave it to comedian and filmmaker Brooks to think up such a lively and fast-paced book. Think about a future where cancer has been cured, global warming is really happening, people have friends in the form of robots, Los

Angeles, Florida, Carnival-like cruising on â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sunset,â&#x20AC;? AARP and â&#x20AC;&#x153;the olds,â&#x20AC;? the fatal day for the USA of June 12, 2030, earthquakes, being homelessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all there. And the best thing about this story, besides a lot of it presently taking place, is that the part that isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t occurring today really could happen. So pick the book up, hold on to your hats for a scary, funny, and fast ride into the very feasible future. Do you listen to your friends talk about their book clubs and feel left out? Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your solution: Start with Margotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggested The Weekly Sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Read Itâ&#x20AC;? column and give us your feedback at margot6@mindspring. com. tws

Diva to Set Off Fireworks in Star-Spangled Concert BY KAREN BOSSICK

I

nternational diva Alyson Cambridge blew the roof off of Carolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dollar Mountain Lodge when she last performed in Sun Valley as snow softly fell outside. Now she gets a chance to wreak havoc on the Sun Valley Pavilion with that clear, powerful voice of hers that has taken her to opera stages in Paris, Berlin, Vienna and even China and Korea. Cambridge and the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra will kick off the Fourth of July celebrations in the Wood River Valley with a Sun Valley Summer Spectacular Concert at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 30. Cambridge and Craig Jessop, former director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, have worked out a program that features several patriotic numbers. It will also feature a variety of operatic favorites from â&#x20AC;&#x153;La Bohemeâ&#x20AC;? to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carmen,â&#x20AC;? as well as a medley of popular American standards like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Summertimeâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Help Lovinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; That Man.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we were conceiving this concert, we wanted to put together a program that had a little something for everyone and that reflected ALL the things I love to sing, not just opera,â&#x20AC;? said Cambridge, who is singing the parts of Donna Elvira in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Don Giovanniâ&#x20AC;? with Deutsche Oper Berlin and Julie La Verne in Lyric Opera of Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Showboatâ&#x20AC;? this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big misconception that opera is always stuffy, boring or that classically-trained singers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sing in different styles.â&#x20AC;? Cambridge, the Grand Prize Winner of the 2003 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, has been involved in a variety of special opportunities, from promoting environmental awareness in China to performing â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the Diary of Sally Hemings,â&#x20AC;? a take on a key figure

in Thomas Jeffersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what she had to say: How did your tour to promote environmental awareness in China come about? And what kind of effect did it have? I was invited to be a part of a Three World Sopranos concert tour in China, the producer of which is also the Culture Consultant of All China Environment Federation. It was his idea to bring singers from different parts of the world together to bring about awareness and highlight the importance of protecting the environment. While the concert featured operatic highlights, we also performed several original Chinese songs composed for the tour that talked about the beauty of the earth and protecting it. Given the support we received from the All China Environment Federation and that we were the first singers ever to be invited to perform on the stage of the Great Hall of People in Beijing, the tour received a tremendous amount of press, TV and media attention, all of which ultimately did bring wonderful attention to the cause. I was thrilled to be a part of it and have been invited to return to China again for a solo concert tour. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sung in every corner of the world, except for the Arctic and Antarctica. How do audiences differ? Audiences really do differ in different parts of the world! It is really quite interesting to observe and experience as a performer. Opera, and classical music in general, is very much an integral part of European cultureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;something that everyone has grown up with and are constantly surrounded by, which is not as much the case in the U.S. Therefore, audiences tend to be a bit more discerning and particular in their tastes and how artists interpret classical music.

For example, an audience in Vienna really KNOWS Mozart! Depending on the country, an audience may be more reserved or more effusive throughout a performance. However, one commonality is that when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve sung and performed well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found all audiences across the board do want to let you know at the end of the performance. While I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that I â&#x20AC;&#x153;caterâ&#x20AC;? to any one audience, my goal certainly is to deliver the most enjoyable performance for an audience in every way, whatever that may entail for that particular performance. Any favorite roles, performances, operas? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asked that question often and the answer tends to be the role Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m performing at the momentâ&#x20AC;Ś However, the two roles that I consistently LOVE to perform and jump at the chance to do whenever they come about are Mimi in La Boheme and Violetta in La Traviata.

T he

I love those women. I love the music, their stories, the acting challenges that each role provides, and that I find something new and wonderful in them and in the music every time I perform them. You graduated from The Metâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young artist program. What did you take away from that? I was in the Metâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lindemann Young Artist Development from 2003-2006. In addition to voice lessons, I was provided the unique and extremely privileged opportunity to coach and study daily with the most wonderful vocal, musical, linguistic and acting coaches at The Met. We were also able and encouraged to watch rehearsals and performances of all of the productions going on throughout the season, so, as a young singer, to be able to watch the best singers in the world in their rehearsal and performance practice really proved to be an invaluable teacher as well. Things have now come full circle, and I am honored and humbled to have had the opportunity to share the stage with

many of those illustrious artists I once watched and studied as a young artist. What is it like doing â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the Diary of Sally Hemingsâ&#x20AC;?? Collaborating with the great William Bolcom on â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the Diary of Sally Hemingsâ&#x20AC;? was certainly a career highlight. Working with him and librettist Sandra Seaton on the intricacies of the complex music and dense text was one of the most rewarding parts of the process in bringing Sally to life. I did a great deal of research on Sally Hemings and Thomas Jefferson when preparing to work on the project, which helped a great deal. However, it was what Bolcom and Seaton created in the song cycleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in any history bookâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that made this woman real for me.

regularly as a child in Southern California. As a young adult, she was employed at Wisdom Ranch, a facility for troubled boys. On the ranch, Jameson experienced weeklong cattle drives and used her riding skills to keep their horse going well. Jameson landed in Ketchum after college. While working in a wine bar, it was suggested to her by three different people that she apply for a job at what was then Sagebrush Equine Training Center for the Handicapped (SETCH) in Hailey. Program director Wendy Collins showed her the ropes and Jameson persevered. She worked with many students and horses and gained valuable experience and wisdom

in her seven years at SETCH. In 2010, she pursued her PATH advanced certification. The test required that she become a competent dressage rider who understood the process, the movements and how to apply them. As part of the exam, Jameson taught able-bodied riders also. She says that her increased knowledge of dressage has made her a much better instructor. “The better rider you are, the higher level you can teach,” she said. When she started at SETCH she thought that working with disabled riders was more about teaching life skills than athletic riding skills. She has the confidence now to ask

them to be the best rider they can be, having become a more accomplished rider herself. Jameson is inspired by her mentor, Jenny Nell, who has coached several students at the World Equestrian Games Para-Olympic level. Jameson has several students now at Swiftsure Ranch that she hopes may achieve the Para-Olympic level in the future. A horse that likes human interaction, has a quiet disposition, is personable, strong and sound makes a great therapy horse. Jameson believes that the good ones enjoy their work and know they are making a difference in their rider’s life. If a rider can switch from left brain

to right brain, a deep and true connection can occur. Jameson’s favorite horse for therapy and riding is Yum Yum, pictured here. Swiftsure Ranch is located on Highway 75 two miles south of tws Bellevue.

Noxious Weeds

I

t’s that time of year again. Gardens and landscaping are growing, and the flowers are beginning to show their colors. That means it’s also the time of year to start making an effort to control the weeds that are popping up this time of year. What makes a weed a weed and why are some considered noxious? Technically, a weed is any plant growing where humans don’t want it growing. A noxious weed is a plant that has been determined by the state of Idaho to cause injury or harm to agriculture, recreation, wildlife, public health or property. Noxious weeds are non-native species that have been introduced and have no natural predators or checks to their spread in Idaho’s ecosystems. Noxious weeds cause $300 million in lost crop productivity each year in Idaho alone. Nationwide, these costs exceed $7 billion. They invade rangeland and riparian areas, reducing habitat for wildlife and damaging fisheries. Here’s how you can help. Stop by the Blaine County Weed Department’s office located at 302 S. 1st Ave. in Hailey and pick up a copy of Idaho’s Noxious Weeds Guide and learn to identify the noxious weeds of Blaine County. When hiking, biking, fishing, etc., keep an eye out for noxious weeds and let us know what you see. If you encounter a plant that you believe may be a noxious weed, take a sample and bring it by and we can help you identify it. We can also be reached by phone at 208-788-5516 or 208-720-8774 and by e-mail at: jmiller@co.blaine.id.us.

CFLs Not for Every Situation

C

FLs not for every situation Switching to compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) from incandescent bulbs is a good moveâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for your wallet and for the environmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but here are some more things you should know about them. A CFL usually has about 7,000 on-off cycles in its lifespan. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to you how you use them, but repeated on-off cycles (more than 20 per day) will shorten the life of your bulb. If your fixture is on a motion sensor that is tripped continuously, you may want to consider an alternative light (an LED, for an example). Probably for that reason, many people believe that it takes more power to turn a CFL on

than to leave it on all the time. Such is not the case. The initial start-up, or surge of electricity, used to power a CFL is infinitesimal and only lasts for a millisecond. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d use much more energy keeping the light on when not in use. Hopefully, you are already in the habit, but turn off a CFL whenever you no longer need the light. Another consideration: CFLs in fixtures that are subject to regular or strong vibration will have a shorter life. LED bulbs again may be a good solution. Have a question or want to write your own ERCbeat? Contact the Environmental Resource Center at 208.726.4333 or reduce@ercsv.org. tws

Transportation Hub Open House Feedback The June 19 open house to initiate a dialogue about whether a transportation hub could work for our community garnered strong turnout and thoughtful feedback. The partnership between the City of Ketchum and Mountain Rides had nearly 80 community members come and learn about Mountain Rides, its challenges and opportunities, what a transportation hub is and why it could be a good fit. Participants also provided feedback responses to questions and surveys posted around the room. Highlights from the feedback received include that 84 percent of those polled indicated Mountain Rides pro-

vides a very important service to our community, and when asked if they thought a transportation hub could be a benefit, 61 percent indicated â&#x20AC;&#x153;for sure,â&#x20AC;? with 76 percent â&#x20AC;&#x153;for sureâ&#x20AC;? or leaning toward â&#x20AC;&#x153;yes.â&#x20AC;? Just shy of 20 percent of respondents indicated they need more information. With early indications that there is significant interest in further exploration of the concept of a transportation hub in Ketchum, based on the feedback, plans are underway for a second round of information sharing and gathering on August 16th. Info: Mountain Rides at 208-7887433 or mountainrides.org.

The Feng Shui of the Habitat STORY & PHOTO BY BALI SZABO

L

ike a coming freight train, the wind from the west could be heard miles away, coming down Croy Canyon. Once past the river, it fractured like the spread fingers of two hands and fanned out in the valley. It bent trees and sent unsecured odds and ends and trash flying. Done for the day, I sat and watched this tempest in a teapot play itself out. The wind ushered in cooler nights, worrying people growing vegetables. Two years ago we had a deep freeze after the Solstice. The flyers knew better than to compete with the 50 mph gusts. Songbirds, bees and the bumper crop of swallowtail butterflies laid low. The birds sang between gusts, when they could be heard. The Habitat turned into a no-fly zone. As the afternoon deepened, the wind abated, the flowers returned to their fixed positions, and all was well with the world. For us, the drama was over. Elsewhere in the West, the high winds were a nightmare for homeowners and firefighters. The low snowpack, heat-wave temperatures and rainless â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lightning may make this the worst fire year in the history of Colorado, with New Mexico not far behind. A devastating fire near Ruidoso is devouring structures, and large tracts of the Gila National Forest north of Silver City were charred. The High Park Fire near Fort Collins, driven by high winds, has destroyed 200 homes and is threatening 2000 more; 93 square miles has burned. Fires travelling between 25 and 40

Summer in the Habitat

mph get real scary. Will our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;smoke seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hold off until its traditional start of early August? Some with ears more subtle than mine have observed that plants, trees and shrubs have their own wind signatures. The wind song differentiates as it passes through the leaves. The aspen sizzles and tinkles, built to let the wind and the sun through. The willow bends and whispers. The leafed-out box elders imitate the sound of the rain, along with the 150-foot cottonwood across the way. The unabated â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bassoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wind that roars through a canyon fractures into a chorale of songs and voices. The verdant hisses and swishes differ from the sere rattles of fall, especially among the desiccated grasses. In the Habitat, waves of color start to come in succession. A bank of blue irises and an island

of the miniature bearded ones, spikes of lupine, stretches of gossamer blue flax in full bloom fill the eye. During weeding, the short-lived azure petals stick to my moist skin. Tatoos. Banks of oxeye daisies, one of the anchor tenants, are succeeded by edgings of columbines. Mass plantings concentrate color and emotion; they are evocative. The trick is to have one plant succeed another on the same plot, so a square foot becomes multipurpose rather than a one-man show. You can see this on the walk to Baker Lake. The meadows along the switchbacks go from larkspur to flax to lupine, and then the penstemons and scarlet gilia. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait for the classical music events to start. Flowers sing to tws the eye.

movie review

Where’s Sigourney Jon rated this movie

BY JONATHAN KANE

I

t’s been a bummer of a summer for blockbusters. Although they have raked in billions of dollars, films like the Avengers and MIB3 just don’t cut it and leave the audience hoping that the trend will be reversed with The Dark Night Rises. Nothing, though, can touch the total disappointment of Ridley Scott’s new sci-fi epic Prometheus. Perhaps the most eagerly awaited film of the summer, Prometheus sinks like a lead weight and leaves you scratching your head and asking, Why? After all, Scott is responsible for two of the most notable sci-fi films ever made—Alien and Blade Runner—and he also helmed a little film you may have heard about—Gladiator. He

is also known for an unparallel visual style that goes back to his legendary Chanel perfume ad in the seventies. Instead, what we have here is a real dud for mumbo jumbo and pretensions that go absolutely nowhere. Billed as a prequel to Alien with a tantalizing advertising campaign, the film has something to do with the creation of the human species, but without any of the thrills or surprises of the original. Scientists discover cave paintings and images from around the world that seem to point to some distant galaxy where our origins may have come from. Off they go, with the cliché group of characters aboard, to find the distant planet on a ship called Prometheus. Of course, there is the obligatory robot with a secret agenda and creatures that pop out of various navels. But there is none of the tension, excitement and tight script of the original, only unanswered philosophical questions that yearn for a (god forbid) sequel. tws

O

n this year’s Fourth of July, heavy metal fans can throw their horns up and celebrate their independence at the Idaho Center in Nampa with an all-day outdoor metal fest—the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival 2012, where Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax and Motörhead are at the top of the lineup. But the festival doesn’t just stop at music—it will also include the roar of freestyle motorcyle jumping from the Metal Mulisha, a host of interactive activities, autograph-signing sessions and more. Celebrating their 30th anniversary this year is an old favorite, Anthrax. And fans will be pleased to know that during the upcoming show, rather than play the Main Stage, they chose to get up close to the masses of Mayhem-goers with a fast and furious Jagermeister Stage performance. Since original vocalist Joey Belladonna rejoined the Anthrax lineup a little more than a year ago, the band has made an extraordinary comeback on the metal scene. In 2010, they pulled off a successful and firstof-its-kind tour with The Big 4—Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax. This was followed by the release of their first new album in eight years—the first with Belladonna in 20. The album, Worship Music, debuted at No. 12 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart after its release in September 2011 and has had more rave reviews than you could shake a stick at. The band had been trying to get the album off the studio floor for four grueling years, and had gone through three vocalists in the process. It wasn’t until Metallica’s Lars Ulrich mentioned The Big 4 tour idea to them that band members realized they had to bring back Belladonna to bring that dream to fruition. Last week I had the opportunity to talk with Belladonna about their efforts on the album, and more. He told me that after their 20-year break, they could all see clearer now and ensure that everything’s in line with what they need to carry through. Although the lyrics were already written, Belladonna said, “I was eager to see them and drive them home in my own style.”

And he certainly did, from the ballad-like cadence of In The End, to the raw vocals in Fight’em ‘Til You Can’t. When asked about performing the emotionally charged In The End, which pays homage to Dimebag and Ronnie James Dio, Belladonna said it meant a great deal. When asked what influence the two musicians had on him over the years, he responded, “Those guys are top notch at what they do, and I’ve been very inspired by all their endeavors.” He also played at Dio’s memorial service, where he bid adieu to his old friend with a performance of Man on the Silver Mountain. Of the experience, Belladonna said, “It was quite special and an honor to be able to do.” There are a lot of powerful lyrics on Worship Music that seem to do with the past and saying goodbye. When asked if the album was really about moving forward for Anthrax, Belladonna responded, “Definitely. We took a step into a new venture. It’s rejuvenating.” The restored band has definitely hit a fresh note with this new album. Having recently finished 10 European shows and two in the U.S. on The Big 4 tour, I asked him if there were any countries that were home to more enthusiastic fans than others. His humble reply: “I don’t judge any kind of thing like that. I really don’t get caught up on the applause or non-applause—movement or no movement—some people just like to watch.” As for Anthrax’s future plans, Belladonna said they do have some other things they’re working on, including a song in the making on a Dio tribute album. How about words of advice to young musicians looking to pursue a career in the industry? “With all the things you gotta battle, stick to your guns, or else it’ll basically just be a hobby. You need to play with people that enjoy the same kind of music and want to be in the same kind of zone every day.” Whether you’re an aspiring musician or a flag-carrying Anthrax fan, be sure to catch them during their fourth stop on this year’s Mayhem Festival tour in Nampa, where they’ll join other music legends to give you the best taste of freedom you could find on this Fourth of July. tws

Band Members: Joey Belladonna vocals, Charlie Benante – drums, Frank Bello – bass, Rob Caggiano – guitars, and Scott Ian – guitars Album sales exceed 10 million with multiple Gold and Platinum albums The band appeared in a 1992 episode of Married With Children, where the Bundy children, Kelly and Bud, won the My Dinner With Anthrax contest They did the soundtrack for a 1990 cult classic, Pledge Night, in which Belladonna also had a role

Lawrence Packs a Full Schedule and Maintains a 4.0 BY JONATHAN KANE

B

rooke Lawrence, Wood River High School senior, is passionate about what she does, and that might be the root of her success in what she tackles. Whether it be playing the violin, excelling at crosscountry skiing for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation Nordic program or maintaining a 4.0 grade point average in school, Lawrence is single-minded about accomplishing what she sets out to do. “Everything I do is important to me,” she said, “or else I wouldn’t do it.” Take, for example, the violin. “I’ve just always done it and it’s now a part of me. I still take lessons once a week with my teacher and work on the solos that I’m learning. I started in first grade when I was six years old and it continues to be a major part of my life. My mom got me started because music was a big part of her family and my father couldn’t carry a tune so she wanted me to try it. A violin was also less expensive and easier to travel with. It also such a beautiful instrument and the sounds you get from it are amazing.” Lawrence also had a

lot of role models to look up to. “I had the rare opportunity to see Itzhak Perlman perform when he was here in Sun Valley. It was truly amazing, especially during the pauses when he would sit back and listen to the music. You could see how much he loved it and it was so inspiring.” Lawrence started out in an unusual way. “One teacher, Heidi Bynum, had me learn finger positioning on a cake box with a paint stick attached and the strings painted on. The first piece I learned was Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and it was my first performance when I was seven years old. As to performing, I’ve always enjoyed just playing more than performing. I recently had a tough time with it because of nerves but I’ve worked it out with my current teacher, Jennifer Sullivan. One big plus to performing is the satisfaction of sharing what I love with other people.” Lawrence also has the privilege of working with the Sun Valley Summer Symphony by attending their summer camp and working with them during the year by taking private lessons. “For the camp, kids travel from everywhere and it’s so nice to get

together and play music.” As to her favorite composers, Lawrence has a special place in her heart for Vivaldi. “His work is so beautiful and his solo pieces for the violin are so thematic. I also love Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite and I have a passion for the tango and Spanish music. There is so much emotion and it’s fun to play.” As to the future, “It’s so important to me and I want to play the rest of my life even if it means just pulling out the violin and playing for myself.” Also of supreme importance is her schoolwork, as evidenced by her carrying a 4.0 gpa. It’s so important that she sees herself as a biology teacher after hopefully graduating from Smith College. “I just love to learn. I’ve always been a good reader and I’m fascinated to know things about the world. That’s why I take to science because I want to understand things based on knowledge. I want to know why a certain behavior exists, like how water reaches the top of a tree like a redwood. It just makes me happy to know why. Why I want to be a teacher is because of an inspiring teacher that I had in seventh grade – Sarah Schae-

fer. It was quite amazing how she could make kids enjoy what we were learning about. Her enthusiasm was incredible. She showed me how great a feeling it is and how fascinating it is to see another person discover and learn. I found this out myself by working with my younger brother. I could see his mind grow and make him so happy to put things together. I just want to see kids discover the joy of learning something.” tws

Fishing R epoRt The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR JUne 20, 2012 By: BRAD kAne

The local Fishing scene is heating up rapidly. Big Wood River is starting to fish well, as water levels drop and wading improves, what we have seen in recent turbid and slightly high water seems to be the last of the high country snow melt. We are seeing green drakes in the south ( hailey, Bellevue ) areas and some stone Fly activity as well. nymphing early is always a good way to start,. when you see rising fish switch to emerges or drys and buckle up! Warm springs Creek has been fishing well, it’s low and clear, wading is great. We are seeing a few PMD’s during the day. a double nymph rig is bringing some nice fish to hand. Drive out past the end of the pavement or well into the meadow. Mid Day into early eve is the best time right now to be out on Warm springs. Silver Creek is fishing very well, with PMD’s early and late, a little emerger 6” below a dry in the morning is working well. spinner Fall in the evening has been so much fun. And for the bold soul, try fishing at night on the creek. As always call or stop by a Sturtevant’s near you before you hit the water for up to the min reports and hot flies. Good (Free) Advice

Locking in Your Rate BY ANA TORRES

I

t is difficult to know when to lock a mortgage rate or float to keep options open. Unfortunately, you can’t accurately predict the direction of interest rates, but what you can do is follow the trends and only lock when you’re satisfied that the rate will yield an affordable payment that you’ll be financially comfortable with for many months to come. The following are a few tips for both buyers and those looking to refinance and take advantage of the current low rates. Consider the current mortgage rate, term and type According to the Bankrate. com national survey of large lenders, the benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is currently hovering around 3.97 percent. Depending upon your closing schedule, you, the buyer, will have the option to float a rate and risk the chance of rising rates, or lock and risk the chance of missing out on a lower rate. Mortgage rates are the lowest they’ve been in a long time, but you shouldn’t select a new mortgage based solely only on its annual percentage rate. It is also important to consider the term of the loan and whether the interest rate is fixed or variable and if you have the option to pay fees up front in exchange for a lower rate. Ensure long-term affordability If you couldn’t afford a home six or 10 years ago, chances are you can now. With home prices just as enticing as mortgage rates, deciding whether or not to buy a home and lock a rate is, for many, a no-brainer. But before you jump into homeownership, consider your long-term financial situation. Make sure you can comfortably pay your mortgage each month at the rate you’re considering. Refinancer Tips Calculate the potential savings: The old rule of thumb

is to hold off on refinancing until your rate has dropped by a certain percentage point. This is still a good rule to follow, but in order to truly determine whether it’s in your best interest to refinance, you need to calculate your break-even point. To discover your break-even point, simply divide your mortgage fees by your monthly savings. The resulting figure represents the number of months you will need to stay in the home to make refinancing worth your while. When calculating your savings, be sure to also factor in the refinance application fee, legal fees, appraisal fees, title search fees and title insurance fees. Refinancing fees vary from state to state and lender to lender. Learn what rates are available to you to help determine your savings. Get finances in order before applying: Ensure you qualify by getting your finances in shape. Lenders will review your home value, credit score and income to determine whether you qualify for a mortgage refinance. If you are one of the many who owes more than their home is worth and is struggling to make your monthly mortgage payments, you may qualify for the government’s Home Affordable Refinance plan (HARP). With mortgage rates near all-time lows in May and the housing market showing signs of life, buyers and those refinancing are taking notice and locking in their rate. If you were one of them, give yourself a pat on the back. If your rate is still floating, consider contacting your mortgage professional to discuss the current rates and potentially locking. tws Ana Torres is the owner and broker of Mortgage Solutions in Bellevue.

ineen â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jiniâ&#x20AC;? Griffith moved to the Wood River Valley in 1979, drawn to the area by the beauty of the mountains, hills, and rivers surrounding us. Griffith has always been most content when directly involved in nature by predominantly hiking, camping, biking, kayaking, or climbing. Jini says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until I slowed down with my paint box in hand that I saw a deeper and more subtle side of nature, a side that is often elusive, always changing, one that I do not find boring or grow tired of the challenge in capturing on canvas.â&#x20AC;? Jiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style is plein-air (French for open-air) painting. It is a search to paint outside in natural light, using color to define form. She paints â&#x20AC;&#x153;a la prima,â&#x20AC;? laying down a scene, painting quickly with broad brush strokes, often complet-

ing the painting in under two hours. It often seems impossible to capture the elemental beauty of such places, but Griffith anticipates enjoying much of her life trying to do so.

Hop Porter Park Community Day, Saturday Hailey Mayor Fritz Haemmerle is set on bringing the City of Hailey public spaces to a higher standard. A weekly mowing schedule has been established for all parks. Dog control measures have been increased; dog owners will be expected to follow Haileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leash laws in the parks and to pick up after their dogs using doggie bags. Trash will be removed frequently from the parks. A Community Park Clean-Up day is scheduled for Saturday, June 30, 2012, at Hop Porter Park. The community is invited to participate in trash pick-up, painting or staining of the pavilion, play structure and picnic tables, repair and tightening of bolts and screws in benches and play equipment, cleaning up the mud pit area, and other general maintenance activities. Webb Landscaping has adopted the Hop Porter Park to perform weekly mowing and maintenance activities. A Community Park Clean-Up Day was held at the Skatepark in April, and

City Parks Department personnel have been refining the care and beauty of that park since then in preparation of the June 23 grand re-opening event. The Keefer Park soccer fields were the focus during May, and in early June, Mike Beall of the Hailey Co-Ed Softball League volunteered time at Lions Park to repair fencing, bleachers, and manage weeds. A gazebo was added to the park by the Wood River Land Trust, and a footbridge to the wetlands area is under construction. Other parks which have been adopted by local community members or businesses include: Clearwater Landscapingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adoption of Roberta McKercher Park, Whitehead Landscapingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adoption of Balmoral Park, and Lily & Fernâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adoption of specialty landscape features at Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Garden. Additionally, Mountain Lifestyles Property Service has adopted the Park & Ride Lot. Mayor Haemmerle has encouraged residents and businesses within Hailey to use and own their parks.

Reflexology Offers Multiple Benefits

When we run yours, you get a $20 gift card to Albertsons! leslie@theweeklysun.com

BY MARK COOK

Sleep Solutions T

hanks to my friend, Merle, I was alerted that Dr. Oz had hand reflexology featured on his program a while back. It was great. There on national TV, Dr. Oz had members from his audience come forward with five different ailments and the reflexologist showed them the reflexology self-help exercises we show our clients for digestion, insomnia/exhaustion, chronic colds, back pain and low libido concerns. As I write, I start my t10 year as a reflexologist and still I find that for many people the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;reflexologyâ&#x20AC;? is unknown. This is a shame because this modality is so effective in so many different health concerns, with the only side effect being you may get better and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even need to take off anything other than your shoes and socks. The objective of reflexology is to bring your whole body into what is known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;homeostasis.â&#x20AC;? This is where your body works as a symbiotic system in balance with itself. Reflexology is unique in that it also has an indicator of progress. The pain found in the hands, feet and ears is â&#x20AC;&#x153;the indicator,â&#x20AC;? which is why I always work within my clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pain limitations. With reflexology, the objective in all cases is that I can work as hard as I want and you experience pleasure instead of pain. Usually, attaining this objective also results in my clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recovery from whatever ails them. No drugs, no diagnosis, no harmful side effects are the benefits of using reflexology. But what is reflexology good for,

Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theater Schmeater is delighted to announce Natalie Symonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; touching and lyrical epistolary play Lark Eden to be performed at Ketchumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nexStage Theatre on Thursday, and Friday, June 28 and 29. Tracing the lives and lifelong friendships of three Southern women beginning in the Depression era and continuing through the early years of the new century, Lark Eden offers a poetic exploration of the ties that bind lives together as tightly as family, and as surely as love. From frog-catching girls with skinned knees to world wizened grandmothers, Lark Eden follows these three lives through personal trials and victories no less daunting than the historical tribulations that provide the backdrop to these everyday American lives. Playwright Natalie Symons said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve often been moved, sometimes haunted, by the way in which old friendships persist as time eludes.â&#x20AC;? General tickets purchased in advance for all shows are $20 or $25 purchased at the door. Advance tickets are available at Chapter One Bookstore, 340 E. Second St. in Ketchum, or online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/252316 or by phone at 800-838-3006. Box office opens at 7 p.m. day of show. The nexStage Theatre is located at 120 S. Main St., Ketchum. For more information about Lark Eden or any other Theater Schmeater event, please go to http://www.schmeater.org or call 206-324-5801.

Author Beth Gates Warren to Lecture on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bohemian Los Angelesâ&#x20AC;? at The Center, Thursday

Join author Beth Gates Warren as she introduces you to some of the archetypal characters who populated the City of Angels during its roughand-tumble days a century ago in a free lecture, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Los Angeles During Its Bohemian Heyday: 1910â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1925,â&#x20AC;? on Thursday, June 28 at 6:30 p.m. The lecture will be held at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts in Ketchum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A bohemian,â&#x20AC;? Warren explains, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is a person with artistic or intellectual aspirations, who lives an unconventional life. No words could better describe people like Edward Weston and Margrethe Mather and their companions, as they proceeded to live life moment to moment, with little regard for propriety or other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expectations.â&#x20AC;? This lecture has been generously supported by Judy and Richard Smooke. For more information, visit www.sunvalleycenter.org.

you might ask? Well, I specialize in pain relief myself, but because my work affects your whole body, you come in for one problem and many other problems are improved at the same time, AND at the same cost, starting with stress relief. A reflexologist seeks to evoke the â&#x20AC;&#x153;relaxation responseâ&#x20AC;? which sets your body up for healing. Stress relief and the relaxation response are well researched. To further this relaxation response, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve brought in vibroacoustic therapy, another non-toxic therapy combining music therapy and vibration therapy which is researched by none other than the National Institutes of Health since 1995 and has shown success helping pain/stress relief, arthritis, autism, cardiac, cancer/chemotherapy, Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, post traumatic stress disorder, bone loss, addictions, multiple sclerosis, learning/focus problems, and much more. Vibroacoustic therapy is a very pleasant therapy. You lay down on a comfortable lounger, put on headphones, and beautiful music created by doctors drive vibrations in the vibroacoustic lounge and each vibration is chosen to do specific things such as deal with PTSD. Together, I call my therapy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vibroacoustic Reflexology.â&#x20AC;? Please go to my website (www.reflex4usa.com) to see what major medical centers say reflexology can help. If your condition is listed, I encourage you to walk through my door or call 788-2012 and maybe you will be helped also.

HAILEY’S FOURTH OF JULY ACTIVITIES, from page 1 only POW/MIA in Afghanistan. A yellow 1955 Ford Thunderbird owned by Dick and Penny Weiss will be driven in the parade in honor of Sgt. Bergdahl. The Hailey Rotary has been hard at work selling tickets for the Road Apple Roulette. Winners will be decided live during the parade! The event has become a popular aspect of the parade. For more information on prizes and tickets visit www. roadappleroulette.com. Immediately following the parade is the Fourth of July Criterium. This is an exciting four-corner bike race in downtown Hailey. This race is fast-paced and energetic, and is quickly becoming one of the most popular Fourth of July events in Hailey. This year the event is part of Ride Sun Valley, a major draw for cyclists. Entries to the event are expected to be at an all-time high. Also after the parade, chill out at the Ice Cream Social,

hosted by The Center, Hailey, located at 314 S. 2nd Ave. On the evening of the Fourth, Company of Fools presents “Das Barbecü” at 7 p.m. This is a fun, nonstop musical with laughs as big as the great state of Texas. This event is a “Pay What You Feel” performance. At 7:30 p.m. the Sawtooth Rangers begin their last night of the Days of the Old West Rodeo. The grand finale of the Hailey Fourth of July events is the fireworks show produced by the City of Hailey. This spectacular show is a Fourth of July must. Oos, ahhs and cheers can be heard all over the Valley. The event begins at dark! If you are a fan of the fireworks, please make a donation to the fireworks fund. There are donation jars located in many Hailey businesses, or you can go to the City of Hailey’s website www.cityofhailey.org to make a donation. The City of Hailey would really appreciate tws your support!

Sweet Summer Dish BY MARGOT VAN HORN

Directions:

H

ave you noticed? Our wonderful Hagerman corn is back! It’s plentiful and priced right. Yum!! I say. Salmon has also been well priced lately and the weather is sort of cool, so that makes me think of a good chowder. Here’s one I like a lot and, darn it, when I make it, it’s like potato chips—I can’t stop eating when I should!

Salmon and Corn Chowder with Fava Beans Serves 4 generous servings.

Ingredients:

1/4 lb. sliced bacon, cut crosswise into thin strips 1 onion, chopped 4 boiling potatoes—I used the white kind, I didn’t peel, cut into ½-inch diced pieces 3 C. chicken broth 1 3/4 tsp. salt 1/4-1/2 tsp. dill 1/4 to 1/2 Tsp. thyme or several sprigs 1/4 tsp. fennel seeds 1 or 2 bay leaves 1/4 tsp. coarse-style pepper 4 ears corn kernels (you can use frozen, but why?) 1 lb. salmon filets—with skin taken off 1 C. fava beans (you can substitute lima beans or even green peas) 3/4 C. half & half (I do use this and don’t use milk) For a topping, you can use chopped chives or scallion tops

In a LARGE pot, cook the bacon till crisp. Remove it with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. If necessary, pour off all but 1 Tbsp. of the fat (my bacon was so lean, I had to add a little olive oil) and add the onion. Cook over moderate/low heat, stirring occasionally, until translucent (about 5 mins.) Add the potatoes, broth, drained bacon, salt and pepper and other herbs to the pot and simmer, covered, for 10 mins. Put the corn kernels in the pot and cook, covered, until the potatoes and corn are just done (about 5 mins. more). Add the salmon, fava beans and bring back to a simmer. Don’t overcook the fish! At this point, stir in the half & half and serve the chowder topped with the chives and with a crusty baguette. Note: It’s even better the next day. Just a little additional note to my readers, people who have stopped me anywhere to comment, and Kristen Olenick in last week’s paper—you’ve made my day, if not my year, when I hear compliments on this column. THANK YOU!!! For easy access and printing of this and past recipes, visit Margot’s blog http://blog.innkeeper. com. Call Margot for personal cooking help at 721-3551.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I have two brothers who both moved across the country. I, however, reside near my parents. It was great when my wife and I were younger and had children. The grandparents were a big help and babysat at least twice a week. Now that my kids are grown and my parents are older, it seems they've forgotten everything and constantly call me for help. Whenever they buy something new, guess who they call to set it up? Last week the power went out and it was imperative that I drive over and reset all the clocks they couldn't reach. I've already hired services to mow the lawn and repair the deck, but I'm wondering if I can hire someone to do these little things. Have you ever seen an ad for hiring a part-time son because this one is getting worn out?

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: Well, you might

start by lowering the clocks in your parent's house so they can reach them. Then, consider investing in some battery powered ones. Carry: Caring for parents as they get older can be overwhelming. Since your brothers have moved away, your proximity

Fast Facts To Do List

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 06/24/12 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

leaves you with most of the responsibility, but it doesn't have to occupy all of your time. Cash: You're on the right track by outsourcing time-consuming projects like mowing the lawn or repairing the deck, and it is possible to hire other services to assist with the smaller jobs. Carry: However before you hire more services, ask yourself if your parents are requesting help because they actually need it, or are they simply looking for ways to see you and your family more often. Cash: Since their grandchildren are now grown, they may be seeking to replace the time they spent babysitting. If that's the case, try setting up specific times

to visit, like dinner once a week, so your parents can look forward to the next time theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see you and your family. Carry: However, if the problem is maintenance, you need to make their home easier for them to use. Doing simple things like moving hard to reach items or replacing clocks that don't require resetting can help. Cash: Then see if your parents have anyone else who they already trust, like friends or neighbors, who can stop in to help. Even a neighborhood teenager may be enough to assemble their latest purchase. Carry: Just remember, you may want to leave them a flashlight for the next time the power goes out.

Reader Humor Tuning Out

For some people, owning a home can translate to having a never ending "to do" list. And with the average age of homes, it's no wonder why. It's estimated that more than one-half of all homes in the U.S. are more than 25 years old. As is often the case with aging homes, that means more upkeep and repairs. Americans spend more than $126 billion on home repair annually and their spending increases at a rate of 14% every year. With so much to do, it's probably about time we get to work!

My parents didn't grow up with computers or electronics, but as they grow older they've each adjusted differently. My mother can operate a computer, but my father can never make sense of anything new. When their old rotary telephone broke a few weeks ago, I bought them one of those new smaller cordless phones. I thought it was perfect, until I recently stopped by. While we were watching TV, my dad decided to order a pizza. He picked up what he thought was the phone, dialed the numbers and held it up to his ear. After a few seconds he griped, "This stupid telephone never has any dial tone!" "Morty," my mother laughed. "You're dialing the remote control again." (Thanks to Daniel M.)

Generations Away

Every generation has a name. If you were born between 1930 and 1945, then you're considered the "Silent" generation, named for your strong work ethic. For those born post WWII between 1946 and 1964, you're a member of the very large "Baby Boom" generation. The children of the baby boomers, however, fall into a category called, "Generation X". The generation of teenagers, born between 1982 and 1995, are known as the "Echo-boomers" and have become the focus of today's advertising since they spend over $100 billion every year. â&#x20AC;˘

518 raves That spiced black bean burgers recipe that Kristen Olenick submitted recently is really outstanding; we goggled ‘em up in no time at all last night!! :) Great article in your June 20 issue by Bali Szabo (“The Silence Of the Bees”) -- although another culprit that wasn’t mentioned in his article (but which is a very real, ongoing threat to U.S. bee colonies, nonetheless) are Africanized bees (which often take and destroy honey-bee colonies and which, in turn, do far less polinating than either honey bees or bumble bees do). African bees are also much more aggressive, which is why many bee keepers don’t want anything to do with them. Another verrry exciting (but also, at times, verrry moving/heartbreaking) two-hour episode of “So You Think You Can Dance?” on June 20th - with standouts for me including that extremely heartfelt and beautiful “dancing-for-her-life” moment with Amelia Lowe (at the show’s 55minute mark or so), as she adroitly danced to Elmer Bernstein’s score for “To Kill a Mockingbird” ... and also “The High Schoolers” group, whose dance routine (at the 68-minute mark) was quietly devastating beyond words (ditto, Cyrus’ “robot-walking” routine, at the 93-min. mark). TV (and dancing) its very, very best!!!!!!!! :) Like something? Don’t keep it to yourself.
