Hailey Climate Challenge Being Documented in Film - Mariel Hemingway to Visit This Week FOR THE WEEKLY SUN


ariel Hemingway, author, actress, lifestyle guru, and granddaughter of the famous author Ernest Hemingway, will be visiting Hailey to host the Hailey Community Climate Challenge film. Hemingway will be the main attraction of the Hailey Community Climate Challenge’s parade float entry in the Fourth of July parade. And she will conduct a book signing for her book, “Running With Nature,” at 5 p.m. Friday, at Iconoclast Books in Ketchum. The Hailey Community Climate Challenge documentary film is being produced by local company Diamond Sun Productions and showcases the efforts of the community to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The project is managed by the City of Hailey and includes a number of participants, including Mountain Rides, Elizabeth Jeffrey, Environmental Resource Center and the Wood River Land Trust’s Building Materials Thrift Store. The film aims to provide an example that can be replicated and inspire other communities and organizations to take on similar challenges. There are eight projects and programs under the challenge: • 18 5B BikeShare bikes, • 75 downtown LED streetlight retrofits, • construction recycling pilot program, • 70 Save-A-Watt rebates, • 9 Renewable Energy System rebate awards, • deconstruction and material salvage, • LEED Silver Certification of the Welcome Center, and • Just Bag It! Made possible by a grant from the U.S. EPA to the City of Hailey, the Hailey Community Climate Challenge is designed to empower people to save energy and money, support the local economy, and share ideas and results with their friends and neighbors. The goal of the Challenge is to save enough energy to provide heat and power to 45 homes for one year. tws

ebecca Rusch looks at 14 teen-age girls in front of her, their foreheads tucked under bicycle helmets, and lowers the boom: “Make sure you’ve got a pump and other essentials. If you get a flat 50 miles from the trailhead and you have no way to fix it, it’s no fun,” she said. Common sense, perhaps, but it’s a fundamental that comprises the foundation of learning to mountain bike. And who knows better than Rebecca Rusch about what you need if you’re four or five hours from a trailhead. After all, this is the gal who has won three 24-hour solo mountain bike world championships. Rusch spends half her summer on the road to cycling events in places like Toronto, Canada, and Levi’s GranFondo in California. When home, however, she’s introducing mountain biking to a new generation of Wheel Girls, coaching them how to move from side to side while keeping their bike in the center. And she’s taken her SRAM

Gold Rusch Tour, a series of events aimed at growing female participation in the sport, on the road to such places as the Sea Otter Classic and the Dirt Rag Magazine DirtFest. She’s leading a Gold Rusch Tour complete with guided rides, a chance to preview the USA Cycling Marathon Nationals Course, a restorative yoga session and even a ride followed by a soak in a hotsprings pool this week as part of Ride Sun Valley. “It’s part of the right legacy—I need to pass it along. There’s more to riding a bike than standing on a podium. The more riders we get, the more bike shops stay in business and it solves a whole lot of other problems like obesity or mental illness,” she said. Rusch has always thrived in the outdoors, but it was only recently that mountain biking became her mainstay. Growing up in Chicago, the highlight of her summer was always camping. She took up rock climbing, kayaking, skiing—

Beautiful Strategist

T Hailey Expands Fourth of July Activities Page 6

he bright red trumpets of scarlet gilia, or skyrocket, make it one of our Valley’s most eye-catching wildflowers. Scarlet gilia seems to have brains as well as beauty, though, and this little member of the phlox family has evolved some pretty interesting survival strategies. For any plant, living long enough to reproduce is the highest priority, and that means surviving animal grazing. How can scarlet gilia, which elk and mule deer find exceptionally tasty, manage to produce seeds for the next generation? A longterm study by Northern Arizona University determined that when under grazing pressure, scarlet gilia turns on the juice, and increases its flower and fruit production. The researchers also

discovered that flowers in early season may be red, while laterseason flowers lighten up, approaching pink. This color shift takes advantage of what pollinators are available; early season pollination is by hummingbirds (attracted to red) and later by hawk moths (attracted to light colors). The Northern Arizona studied concluded that scarlet gilia is “no passive beauty, but a chameleon-like strategist that even takes advantage of being eaten.” Enjoy scarlet gilia all along the roadsides as you reflect on its tactics for success.

e are excited for another summer of fighting noxious weeds with insects in beautiful Blaine County. We kicked off our season with a all-crew training in Gooding on June 13. At this training, Joey Milan of the BLM and Dwight Scarborough of the U.S. Forest Service educated us on the new bio-control changes and trained the new employees. This year, on our crew, we have returning veterans Carmen Leslie, Giovanna Leslie, Kaden Tew, and our newest member, Katee Hubert. Our returning supervisor, Eric McHan, is leading us as we monitor sights and distribute bugs throughout the county. Bronwyn Patterson Nickel of the Blaine County Noxious Weed Department was kind enough to allow us her noxious weed spotlight to talk about bio-control on KECH 95.3 FM. We really enjoyed informing the public and getting to know the DJ, Scott Creighton. This was the first time the bug crew had this opportunity to broadcast on the radio about our responsibilities. Some of the many noxious

weeds that we specifically target in Blaine County include: diffuse knapweed, spotted knapweed, Russian knapweed, Canada thistle, Dalmatian toadflax, and leafy spurge. Due to the various plant phenologies in Blaine County, we are focusing primarily on Dalmatian toadflax and Canada thistle this month because of their vigorous growth during cold weather. The bug for toadflax, mecinus janiformus, was found in abundance at every site that we introduced it to. This seed-head-eating weevil does a great job at keeping toadflax in check. Canada thistle’s enemy is hydroplotus litura. This insect is busy stunting the growth and reducing the number of seeds in Canada thistle. We are still looking for more weed sites. This is a free service sponsored by the BLM, the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. We serve both public and private lands. If you have a noxious weed infestation please call Bronwyn Patterson Nickel of the Blaine County Weed Department at (208) 788-5516 or Eric McHan of the Blaine County bug crew at (208) 316-0355. tws This column is brought to you by Blaine County Weed Management.

Millspaugh’s Back on the Fourth of July Millspaugh gets candid on the beating the heat, roadwork, more BY CHRIS MILLSPAUGH


he Weekly Sun has graciously taken me on as a columnist. I’m so happy to have the opportunity to do what I do again. It’s been a full month of silence since I was dismissed from the other paper and I was

getting quite antsy. Life is full of change and surprise. You just have to roll with it. Okay, how about that heat? Yesterday, I fried an egg on my neck, boiled water in the backyard birdbath and gave all my clothes to The Gold Mine in a futile effort to cool down. I’m still hot. The only possible way I could cool off would be the announcement of Bowe Bergdahl’s release. Keep praying, folks. Love the roadwork, don’t you? Heat and patience don’t really go together in the morning commute. Thank the Lord for audio books. I finished “War and

Peace” in two days of listening while driving from Hailey to Ketchum last week and have “The Bible” set to go this week. The following week, I’ll be ready to enter a monastery. But enough about me. How do you like my ranting? I plan to enter the parade on the Fourth dressed as a goldfish totally emerged in a water tank. I’ll be the guy dressed in gold with a flag attached to an aqua lung. I’m very excited. Boise has slowed down to a standstill as everyone is in a tube in the river. Former Bronco standout, Titus Young, was seen

driving his SUV into Costco in order to shoplift some gum. Coach Pete said, “He’s got issues” as he completed his turn on his kids’ Slip and Slide. I spent Sunday doing drive-by nagging in Woodside: “Hey, you call that a flower bed?” “That brown spot needs some water, do you think?” “Nice touch with the living room set on the front lawn.” Four kids in Bellevue came back from Drama Camp this week with agents. I’m getting 10 percent from each one. In the great scheme of things, how important is the monthly

rent? It’s too hot to be inside, anyway. What are they going to do, throw you outside? Fine. A dog of my acquaintance has refused to come out of the Big Wood River for the last week. I have to feed him wearing waders and it’s getting a little tiresome. He just floats and spins in a circle creating whirlpools of some magnitude which have greatly alarmed the ducks. Anyway, it’s good being back on the Fourth of July. I wish you all the merriest of times. It’s awfully nice to be talking to you again. tws

Friday’s Gallery Walk Features Tiwi Art BY KAREN BOSSICK


hances are Sun Valley was never on Pedro Wonaeamirri’s radar until now. But the Tiwi artist from northern Australia will be in town this week to promote the first American showing of a rare collection of work from the remote Tiwi islands of northern Australia. The works feature Tiwi culture, history and traditional stories expressed through lines, patterns and colors in carvings, paintings, prints on paper, fabric and pottery. The exhibition, “The Tiwi: Art from Jilimara and Munupi Artists,” will be shown at Harvey Art Projects, 391 First Ave. N., in Ketchum. It will be featured on this month’s Gallery Walk from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. And Wonaeamirri will host a free showing of a film of Tiwi films at 6 p.m. tonight at The Community Library in Ketchum. He will field questions and answers afterwards. Wendy Jaquet will provide a free guided Gallery Walk to Ketchum’s galleries. Sun Valley Resort guests can meet her at 5 p.m. at the Recreation Center in the Sun Valley Mall. From there they will take the 5:10 Mountain Rides bus to Gilman Contemporary gallery on Sun Valley Road. Others are invited to meet Jaquet at the Rec Center or at Gilman Contemporary about 5:15 p.m. Here’s a look at some of the other highlights of this month’s Gallery Walk: Gilman Contemporary, 661 Sun Valley Road, will present Hunt Slonem, who will be in attendance to discuss his exhibi-

‘Collateral Damage’ Gets a Reading “Collateral Damage,” a new play by Sun Valley playwright John Grabow, will be given a staged reading at 7 p.m. Sunday at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. The cast includes Keith Moore, Patsy Wygle and their son, Jamie, as well as Sara Rau and Cam Cooper. The reading is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The play revolves around Air Force fighter pilot Jack Matson, who has returned from Afghanistan with the Distinguished Flying Cross to a rocky homecoming. He’s angry with the politicians mismanaging the war and the rear-echelon desk pilots running his life. Most of all, he’s angry with his family — his wife, Beth, and 12-year old daughter, Samantha, and especially his teenage son, Jack Jr., who no longer shares his father’s dream that

he be the first in the family to attend the Air Force Academy. Unbeknownst to his family, Jack has been reassigned as a drone pilot, sitting in an air-conditioned trailer 20 minutes from his suburban Nevada home, staring at a video screen and hurling thunderbolts at bad guys halfway across the world who never shoot back. The virtual world collides with the real world and Jack realizes he does not want to destroy another family, his own. Grabow’s plays have been presented in Los Angeles and elsewhere, including at the nexStage Theater. Grabow is also an attorney, most recently assisting in the successful defense of Cy Young Award-winner Roger Clemens in 2012. He and his wife, Laura, live in Sun Valley.

Champions Donate Campaign Funds: BCRD At their last official meeting, the Champions of the Wood River Trails voted to donate the remaining campaign funds to the Blaine County Recreation District. The volunteer committee formed to advocate for a special levy election held on May 21, 2013, to reconstruct and repair the 20-mile Wood River Trail. The election resulted in success for the advocates with 82.59% percent voting in favor of the measure. “We are happy to report that the campaign spent the donated funds very strategically and very frugally,” said Tom Bowman, treasurer for

the group. “We have approximately $10,000 in our campaign fund account after all the bills are paid. We want to dedicate these funds to our community treasure—the Wood River Trail, and its healthy future,” he added. The remaining funds will be sent to the Blaine County Recreation District to be earmarked for the Wood River Trail and its capital replacement fund. The Blaine County Recreation District, a special taxing district that owns and maintains the popular trail connecting the communities of the Wood River Valley, proposed the levy.

Idaho National Guard Shows Off Their Emergency Communication Capabilities STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


laine County’s police and firefighters won’t be left in the dark, along with everyone else, should there ever be another massive power outage like the one that struck the Wood River Valley on Christmas Eve two years ago. Not with the Idaho National Guard’s Joint Incident Site Communications Capability system available for the asking. The Guard showed off its mobile communications system, which can even facilitate a video teleconference in the wilderness, to representatives of the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office, Ketchum Fire Department and other departments last Wednesday afternoon in the park across from the Hailey Armory. The setup featured computers housed under a camel-colored military Drash tent that expands like an accordion and is easy enough to set up that a trained group can do it in 20 minutes. A satellite dish and three diesel engine generators completed the operation. The 10,000 pounds of equipment could be moved to Hailey from Boise and set up within four hours, said Idaho Army Guard Maj. Dan Lister. “Four hours versus 72 hours—that’s a pretty quick turnaround.” The guard has had the equipment for several years. But many responders in Idaho still do not know about it, said Col. Timothy Marsano. It has been deployed to Texas to respond to

the fallout from a hurricane. The equipment would allow someone on the ground to tell a Guard helicopter pilot where to search for a missing snowmobile. It allows responders at the scene to talk to such agencies as FEMA and Homeland Security in Boise. And it allows responders to tape Internet and e-mail in the backcountry. If there was a pandemic, a mobile lab could be brought in for testing. In the case of a blackout, local law enforcement already have the ability to communicate with one another as long as they’re in the line of sight. But this would allow communication on a much broader scale, said Capt. Jay

Davis. “In a major disaster with a lot going on and a lot of people in the field, this would be great,” he added. It would also have been advantageous in the 2007 Castle Rock Fire because of its ability to allow firefighters to communicate with other departments, said Ketchum Fire Chief Mike Elle. In the Castle Rock Fire, the Forest Service was on one frequency; the police, on another; and other first responders on their frequencies. “To hook them all together would be great,” said Elle. “In all our drills communication is always the issue that comes up. And communication is key to working through the crisis.”

Maj. Lister shows the satellite that expedites communication in the event of a natural disaster or transportation incident.

The unit also could have proven invaluable to the Custer County Sheriff in 2006 when Jon Francis, a counselor for several years at Luther Heights Bible Camp near Ketchum, went missing while climbing Grand Mogul near Redfish Lake, said Marsano. The Custer County Sheriff had requested help from the Civil Support Team but that’s more geared to deal with mass destruction, rather than first responders. The Guard could even have provided radios to searchers in that case. “It would have multiplied their response by a factor of 10, without them needing to buy a bunch of equipment,” Marsano said. tws

Hailey Paradeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Marshal Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primo Western photographer David Stoecklein took several pictures of Harold Drussel, including them in some of his calendars.

Hailey Fourth of July Parade to Feature Harold Drussel BY KAREN BOSSICK


arold Drussel, the grand marshal in Haileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fourth of July Parade, is truly a man of the land of the Wood River Valley. There was a time when he worked a ranch near what is now the Blaine County Gun Club south of Bellevue by day and mined at night, said his son Ken Drussel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He often worked six different jobs at one timeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you do what you have to in order to make a living in this Valley,â&#x20AC;? Ken Drus-

sel said. Harold Drussel, now 68, moved here when he was 13, after having grown up in the southern Idaho towns of Oakley and Burley. His parents moved here to work a small ranch on Highway 20. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took one look around and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heaven, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awfully close,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he recalled. Drussel, too, took to ranching stock cows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did everything from feeding cows to hauling away the byproducts that came out their back ends and everything in between,â&#x20AC;? he said. But, he said you could earn $5 a day ranching from 7 in the morning until 6 at night in 1948. And you could earn $10.05 starting wage working an eight-hour shift from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the mine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A loaf of bread cost 10 cents in those days,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Harold Drussel worked in the Queen of the Hills Mine near Bellevue and the Triumph Mine out East Fork canyon just south of Ketchum. He did everything there was to do, he recalled, but one of his favorite jobs was running a 5-foot-by-10-foot mainline motor cart that took supplies into the mine and hauled ore out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had a bunch of batteries in it,â&#x20AC;? he recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We charged it up in the morning and at noon and night.â&#x20AC;? The mining life could be interesting, Drussel said, especially

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I took one look around [the Valley] and thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heaven, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awfully close.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Harold Drussel

when water flooded the mine. Eventually, the Triumph Mine had to be closed because it was too expensive to pump the water out. Drussel lives in Twin Falls

today. But he still thinks of the Wood River Valley as paradise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like going home every time I go up there,â&#x20AC;? he said.

ur founding fathers unanimously pledged in the Declaration of Independence that, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Freedom to worship, work, speak, and live an individualized American dream are rights preserved by courageous efforts of leaders and soldiers. Yet, given the freedom that “we the people” are entitled to doesn’t mean it is achieved. Many suffer from depression, anxieties, chemical abuse, relationship traumas, victimization, or dire health on one end of discontent and at the other, resigned acceptance that life never turns out the way we hope, so “get over it.” When happiness is denied, we feel cheated that life has been reduced to a humdrum existence, leaving us with the question: Is this it? Maybe we opted out of a

preferred Plan A for an inferior Plan B, convincing ourselves it was easier, expected, better for others that way, or really all we deserved. Perhaps we skipped Plan A out of fear, for the kids, for extended family, for security, costs, age, or timing. It doesn’t matter. When we are untrue to ourselves we, by default, chose to be controlled by fears, limitations, or others’ expectations. Ducking action that grants the freedom to express our own voice that says “This is what I want and am free to do” often leads to despair. Regrets are a lot to be sad about sometimes.

a few years ago. Hmmmm. Let’s see… depression, hypertension, regrets, stress… a dismal reality that many do not thrive despite the freedom-based platform in our country. Responsibility and freedom are essential partners in the pursuit of happiness on both a legislative and personal level. National freedom to live as we choose isn’t enough to build individual happiness. We learn to flourish first by being honest about what we want and next by taking responsible action to achieve it. Admitting that we made an errant choice before, catered to fears over our passion, or lived someone else’s dream helps reclaim your freedom to thrive. Surprisingly, loved ones often feel more included in our lives than before because they enjoy our company more; happy people are easier to be around compared to those that resent life.

ictoria Norback prides herself on being the spitting image of her counterpart in A BA—right down to the flamboyant bell bottoms of the time, the vocal harmonies and the stage mannerisms. But, once in awhile, things don’t go quite as planned. Take that time a zipper in her “short tight shorts” broke, revealing part of her bum to the audience. “I wasn’t aware of it, so my partner on stage was trying to cover it. We got tangled up and we both fell over a monitor on stage, so we were lying on the floor. It was a crazy moment but it turned out well and the audience thought it was so funny!” she said. Norback won’t try to recreate that moment—at least, not on purpose—when she and A RIVAL From Sweden present the music of A BA at the Sun Valley Pavilion Sunday night. But their 11-piece group, the only group sanctioned by A BA to do their music, will try their best to faithfully reproduce the sights and sounds that have made them look and sound like the originals, as they persuade the audience that “you can dance, you can jive, you can have the time of your lives!” The concert is sponsored by Sun Valley Opera. “I think everyone who goes to see their show will be so glad they went because it’s the type of show and music that makes you happy,” said Frank Meyer, president and co-founder of the opera. A BA is one of the biggest pop groups ever, eclipsed only by The Beatles and Elvis Presley. Even though the group disbanded in 1982 after just 11 years, it has sold nearly 500 million records and is still selling more than 2 million albums a year. Its musical “Mamma Mia” has been seen by 65 million people, making it the world’s biggest musical ever. The first A BA Museum just opened in Stockholm, Sweden, offering fans ways to interact with original A BA musicians. And at 63, Agnetha Faltskog—one of the original members of A BA—just released her first new album since 1987—and that album has scored a huge success. “I think you can attribute their success to the quality of the music… such great songs,” said Norback. “And that all the songs by A BA are so different from each other. You cannot compare ‘Fernando’ to ‘Dancing Queen’ or ‘Thank You for the Music’ to ‘The Winner Takes It All.’ Also, the musicians were so experi-

enced—two fantastic female singers, great musicians, and Bjorn and Benny are outstanding as songwriters.” A BA was formed in 1972 by Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. They named their group after the acronym of the first letters of the band members’ first names. At the height of their success, they were second only to Volvo as Sweden’s biggest export earners. They were the first pop group to come from a non-Englishspeaking country that enjoyed continued success in the United States and other English-speaking countries. And they also enjoyed significant success in Latin American markets—they even recorded a collection of their hit songs in Spanish. A RIVAL from Sweden took up where they left off, becoming the world’s best-selling A BA show band. Since 1995 the group has toured 53 nations, often featuring musicians who were with A BA. “You could close your eyes and swear you were hearing the original A BA singers,” said a critic for FM Radio, New Mexico. “The music was so good, people were dancing in the aisles and there were three encores!” A RIVAL from Sweden features Victoria Norback and Jenny Gustafsson as lead vocals, Simon Sjostedt as keyboard player and Fredrik Bjorns as guitar player. There are also three back-up singers, a saxophone player, drummer, bass player and percussionist. They group will be joined in the Pavilion by the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra under the direction of Craig Jessop, former director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The extra sound is not a stretch—A RIVAL has played with the New Mexico Philharmonic, the El Paso, Texas, Symphony, and Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, among others. They’ve played at a 40,000-seat stadium in Latin America and at two of America’s largest outdoor venues—the 40,000-seat Red Rocks Amphitheatre near Colorado Springs and Ravinia Park in Chicago, the summer outdoor home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 1936. Meyer saw the group in Seattle and was smitten. “My wife is not a pop fan, but she thought they were amazing. They’re so professional, they have great harmony, they have movement down pat and their voices are very good. Plus, many of A BA’s hits are timeless—they reached a whole new generation with the Broadway show ‘Mamma Mia’ in the 1990s. And the two male

leads of A BA still compose music—after they retired they composed the Broadway musical ‘Chess,’ which was done in a concert version on PBS starring Josh Groban. It showed how versatile they are.” Norback started A RIVAL in 1995 after seeing an “absolutely awful” A BA show from Australia while going to school in Gothenburg, Sweden. “My mother was an opera singer and my grandparents were into cabaret and other forms of music and theater. Very early I started to sing and perform,” she said. “I was 14 years old when I had my first band. When I was 21 I went to musical Stage School in Gothenburg. And it’s there I decided to do a proper A BA show, the way A BA should be presented.” As a result, she has gotten the full A BA experience, from screaming, crying fans to those who sing along with every song. “They have so much fun!!!” Norback said. “We can really feel how much the audience loves the music of A BA!” As for her own personal favorites? “Oh, hard to pick one of 100 songs. I must say ‘Dancing Queen’ is one of my favorite. But, also more of the not-very famous songs, like ‘If It Wasn’t for the Nights,’ ‘The King has Lost his Crown,’ ‘Tiger,’ ‘Kisses of Fire’ and ‘Angeleyes.’ A BA has done so many good songs and most of them never got famous. Almost all of their 100-plus songs are good, in my opinion.” Does she ever think about doing her own music? “If I ever do, I will have a hard-rock music group,” she said. “I love hard-rock music like Whitesnake, Van Halen, Symphony X, Deep Purple, Evergrey, et cetera. That will be a future project, maybe. But I love to do A BA’s music, every single second of it. Every time I go on stage, it is magic. So A RIVAL from Sweden will continue as long as the audience wants to see the show.” tws

Ketchum Bridge Players Win Titles

Jim Siegel of Ketchum has been named a gold life master in bridge, a rank that puts him in the top 5 percent of bridge players in the nation. In addition, Jo Murray, also of Ketchum, has been named a bronze life master. Siegel now has more than 2,500 master points, or points earned by winning competitive bridge games and tournaments. He won the final points for his new rank at in Gatlinburg, Tenn., which hosts the largest regional bridge tournament in the country each year. Murray now has more than 500 masterpoints. She won the final points needed for the rank in a recent tournament in Twin Falls. A life master is described by the American Contract Bridge League as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;most highly sought level of bridge achievement.â&#x20AC;? It requires earning 300 masterpoints. The new rankings for Siegel and Murray show that they have earned far more points than the minimum required for the title. The Wood River Valley will offer bridge games five days a week starting in July, as well as lessons for beginning and intermediate players.

Wood River Jewish Film Fest Debuts BY KAREN BOSSICK


aralyzed by polio, Doc Pomus didn’t exactly cut the rug on the dance floor. But that didn’t stop this Jewish blues singer and songwriter, whose real name was Jerome Felder, from writing “Save the Last Dance for Me”—one of the hits of the Fifties. A documentary of Pomus, who championed black rhythm and blues musicians and also wrote “A Teenager in Love,” “This Magic Moment,” Turn Me Loose” and “Young Blood,” will lead off the new Wood River Jewish Film Festival this month in Ketchum. “A.K.A. Doc Pomus,” which won the grand prize at the Stony Brook Film Festival and “Audience Favorite” awards at other festivals, will be shown free of charge at 6 p.m. Monday at The Community Library. “It’s one of America’s great untold stories,” said Linda Cooper, who is among those organizing the festival. “People will want to get up and dance.” “A.K.A” will be followed up on Monday, July 15, with “A Matter of Size,” an adorable romantic comedy about overweight people learning to accept themselves that Cooper promises will keep audiences smiling all the way through. The film won more than 10 film festival top honors in U.S. film festivals and several Israeli Academy Awards. “Orchestra of Exiles,” directed by Academy Award-nominated Josh Aronson, will conclude the festival on Monday, July 22. It is the story of Bronilslaw Huberman, a prodigy violinist who saved a thousand of Europe’s top Jewish musicians, family members and friends from obliteration by the Nazis by relocating them to Palestine where they started a new orchestra. Film chair Linda Cooper served on a film committee in San Diego where she and her husband Jay have a second home. “I love films and I love being Jewish—there are so many delicious things about it,” she said. “The whole story and history of the development of Israel and

“I thought this festival would be nice for the Jewish community and the non-Jewish community as well. [None of the films are religious.] We also stayed away from showing political films because they can be divisive with what’s going on in the world.”

how it became a state is one of the wonders of the world.

If the film festival proves a hit, she’ll try to include more films next year. None of the films are religious. Rather, they explore different aspects of Jewish culture that should appeal to anyone. “We also stayed away from showing political films because they can be divisive with what’s going on in the world,” Cooper said. “The films we ended up with are just wonderful awardtws winning films.”

As he walked the 1,300-year-old route, he heard unforgettable stories from other pilgrims and took a deeper look at his own life stories.

RUSCH INTO IT, from page 1

“No one says, ‘I want to ride a bike to get hurt,’” Rebecca Rusch tells the girls. “It’s more fun if your equipment’s working properly. Make sure the wheel is on all the way. Imagine if your wheel fell off while you were riding.”

Rebecca Rusch tells the girls that she uses one finger to brake instead of three—that way you have more control. “Sometimes I use my index finger; sometimes, I use my middle finger.”

ing—she even floated the Grand Canyon in low water during winter on a boogie board. But biking was her least favorite sport until she realized she could go farther on a bike than she could on her two feet. “For me, all these things I do are about adventure, exploration. I used to run track but I couldn’t stand running around a track—I much preferred cross-country, where you didn’t know what was around the next turn. I can’t even imagine swimming laps where you’re looking at the bottom of the pool the whole time,” she said.

A home with a garage Rusch was introduced to Sun Valley by Sun Valley native Pat Harper, a teammate in Eco challenge races through such countries as Morocco. “I came to visit and never left,” she said. “I drove in from the south and said this doesn’t look like very much—he’d told me how beautiful it was here. But as I got closer the beauty began to unfold. That was 12 years ago and it’s become the first place I’ve put down roots since I was a kid. We have so many great trails right out our doors, and it’s a great place to return to unpack and pack my bags. I’m even upgrading to a new home with a garage, which should tell you something.” Rusch has paid enough dues that she is now supported by a long list of sponsors that includes Red Bull, Specialized, GU, Garmin, Smith Optics, Camelbak and Salomon. They and prize money from her races allow her to earn a living as a professional athlete. Some, like SRAM, also provide her the opportunity to offer many of her clinics free of charge. Rusch, who worked on call for the Ketchum Fire Department as she built sponsor support, enlists the aid of other athletes in her clinics to give them exposure. And she changes clinics up every year to offer clinics in different places. “People say, ‘You’re not coming to Pennsylvania this year?’ and I say, ‘No, but you can do a clinic.’” That gets other people started offering clinics. When I went to bike races, I saw a whole bunch of women who were not signing up for races. They were intimidated to go to a bike shop—it was like going to an auto mechanic; they didn’t want to look like idiots. The more clinics people like myself offer, the more we can change that.” Rusch’s persistence at giving


back to her sport has earned her the admiration of Ketchum cyclists like Karoline Droege. “I know a few professional athletes who are all amazing at what they do. For me, what separates Rebecca as a professional is that she is not only the best at what she does, she is also incredible at giving back to her sport. She is an inspiration to all of the women that she coaches in her Gold Rusch Tour events. She inspires people she races with to be better,” Droege said. “She is a spokeswoman for trail advocacy, she picks up a shovel and helps with local trail building/maintenance. She looks for opportunities to give back and to grow the sport of mountain biking at every turn. And when the gun goes off at the starting line, there’s nobody who is mentally tougher than Rebecca. Her ability to ignore pain and to keep moving forward is uncanny.”

The Queen of Pain In fact, Rusch’s affinity for the toughest, longest bike races on Planet Earth have earned her the nickname “Queen of Pain.” Those rides offer a state of meditative bliss for her. “What I love about long events is the fact that I have one goal. I’m not distracted by e-mails, the business of life. I start and I finish and I ride in between. When you’re out three or four hours, everything’s stripped away. You eat, drink, and focus.” That’s not to say unexpected obstacles don’t appear. On the 142-mile Kokopelli Trail through Utah and Colorado, where she crushed her opponents, she was speeding down the trail on her Specialized 5B Works bike when she crashed two hours in, dislocating her finger. She relocated her finger and got back on her bike, only to have her headlamp go out about 4 a.m. Knowing the sun wouldn’t come up for another two hours, she ran her bike along the trail. Then, as her eyes adjusted to the dark, she got back on it and rode the most technical part of the trail by the light of the moon. “People ask, ‘Did you think about quitting?’ I said, ‘No. You grow as a person when you face up to challenges.’ If you sail along and everything’s easy, you don’t grow.” Rusch loves that her Wheel Girls often get their mothers involved in mountain biking. “It’s like when a Nordic skier signs up to do the Boulder Mountain Tour. They may come in last, but they’ve put themselves out there. Everyone who tries something scary comes out smil-

“I Came [to Sun Valley] to visit and never left. That was 12 years ago and it’s become the first place I’ve put down roots since I was a kid. We have so many great trails right out our doors…”

Rebecca Rusch, shown here encouraging the Wheel Girls in their downhill, crosstrains during winter with cross-country and backcountry skiing. But she’ll head to South America for a week in January and Arizona for a week in February to get her bike legs under her before racing season starts.

–REBECCA RUSCH ing at the end.” Anja Jensen said she joined Wheel Girls because her mother said she’d like it. “I do like it,” she said. “We get to learn new stuff and learn it in a fun way.” “What’s really cool about Wheel Girls is that even though the idea is for Rebecca to coach and provide inspiration for the girls, it’s the girls who really inspire Rebecca,” added Droege. “She is constantly amazed at how good the girls are at acquiring new skills, being resilient, picking themselves up when they’re down and following Rebecca’s three rules: Try, Laugh and Cheer (for yourself and others). It’s an amazing program all around.” Scary for Rusch is looking back and realizing how little she knew about nutrition and training in her early days. “Before, I trained on cold pizza and Cheetos. Now, I know it really does matter what you fuel yourself with,” said Rusch, who buys a lot less food in packages, makes her own bread and cooks more things with foodstuffs like quinoa. Rusch also has a coach who has trained Olympians. Among his suggestions: use a power meter on the bike that shows her how much force she’s using in pedaling.

Th e W e e k l y S u n •

Rebecca Rusch has a mix of older bikes for running errands and cruising around town.

“Better nutrition, coaching— these are the reasons I’m getting faster at age 44,” she said. “I’ve learned a lot about nutrition and training. I know to recover and rest more. People think I’m out training 10 hours a day but, with better coaching, I’m learning ways to accomplish more in less time.”

Rebecca’s Private Idaho As part of giving back, Rusch is hosting a new event, Rebecca’s Private Idaho, on Labor Day weekend. The gravel-grinding, lung-busting dirt tour will take riders across Trail Creek Summit, benefitting the Wood River Bicycle Coalition and World Bicycle Relief. Rusch was inspired by a 200mile gravel road ride in Kansas, and some of those she met on

that ride are among those who have already signed up to come here for her event, along with bikers from as far away as New York City. “I’ve always wanted to host an event, bring people here, show them Idaho the way I was shown it,” she said. “And I can make it a give-back sort of thing.” That said, it’s turned out to be one of the scariest endeavors she’s ever undertaken, ranking right up there with a run-in with a sheepdog on the trail, as she tries to put the logistics of food, communications and fire department support together. She hopes to make it an annual event. “Having the national mountain bike races here has opened us up to having bike events just like ski events.” tws

I replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;country music came from English and Celtic folk traditions, filtered through, but not originating in America.â&#x20AC;? Another said â&#x20AC;&#x153;blues!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting closer,â&#x20AC;? I answered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but, like country music, blues was based on folk music brought over from Africa rather than the British and Irish Isles.â&#x20AC;? One more student raised his hand and shouted out â&#x20AC;&#x153;punk rock!â&#x20AC;? I laughed and said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That may be true, but punk was

just a sub-genre of rock nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll, which was a fusion of country and blues.â&#x20AC;? I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only truly original American music is jazz.â&#x20AC;? I received nothing but blank stares and one â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really?â&#x20AC;? that echoed from the back of the class. Yes, jazz. On this Fourth of July, we can celebrate a true American art form and those artists who made it possible: Scott Joplin, Jelly Roll Morton, Louis Armstrong, Fletcher Henderson, Coleman Hawkins, Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Cab Calloway, Benny Goodman, Dizzie Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, Herbie Hancock, Ornette Coleman, Charles Mingus, Jimmy Smith, Gil Evans and countless other musicians who helped create and further the only true American music. This Independence Day be patriotic, play some jazz; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American made. tws

movie review


Jon rated this movie


t may be possible to make a worse film than Man of Steel but it would be a tough trick to pull off. Wait, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wrong, it really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possible to make a worse film. In the new Superman epic, directed very poorly by Zack Snyder and filmed in depressing grey tones, this new, darker Superman has not only lost all the color suggested by comic books, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also lost (dare I say it) his bright red short-shorts. Is there no end to the indignity of it all? Of course, Hollywood is to blame for this mess of a summer blockbuster, but when these films make so much money, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a true blood capitalist to do? Of course, the kicker in all these films is the epic ending, complete with explosions and wide-scale mayhem, but nothing can touch the bloated and endless last 45 minutes of this mess. Never has CGI been so overused to mind-numbing effect. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there is enough Excedrin in the world to wash away the headache as Superman battles to the death with General Zod to

wo groups of most agreeableâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if rather smellyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;goats ate their way through the knapweed and other noxious weeds lining the bike path along Buttercup Road last week. The goats started out this week at near East Fork Road and The Valley Club. This is the third year the goats have been used as an alternative to pesticides. PHOTOS: KAREN BOSSICK/SUN

save the planet. You see, Zod has been searching the universe for Superman because he carries the DNA strain that will resurrect Krypton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the world that Superman was jettisoned from as a baby as the planet imploded. That much comes from the original comic and there are some few tiny moments in the back story that bring back memories of the original. But where is Clark Kent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ace reporter? Certainly not in this story, along with any semblance of humor or credible filmmaking. We also meet Lois Lane (now a Pulitzer Prize winner) being played by the wonderful Amy Adams in a manner that shows she would rather be somewhere else. So would we if we were unfortunate enough to plunk down some cash to be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;entertained.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; tws


Fireworks Safety this Independence Day With the recent rash of lightning caused fire activity on nearly all corners of the Twin Falls District BLM, it further emphasizes the need for extreme caution this Independence Day. The Twin Falls District BLM firefighters would like your help to ensure that everyone has a safe and fire-free Fourth of July. When lighting fireworks, you can prevent wildfires by taking the following precautions: ¡ Light fireworks only in areas devoid of vegetation ¡ Have a bucket of water on hand to dispose of used fireworks ¡ Do not light fireworks on public lands Clearly, wildfire activity has increased significantly over the past few days due to the weather. The Idaho Fire Prevention Order which is in effect until October 20, 2013, is designed to prevent human caused wildfires on public land. Until it is lifted, the following are prohibited on public lands within the State of Idaho: ¡ Discharging, using, or possessing fireworks ¡ Discharging a firearm using incendiary or tracer ammunition ¡ Burning, igniting or causing to burn any tire, wire, magnesium, plastic or explosive material (including

exploding targets) that may cause a fire Violations of the 2013 Fire Prevention Order may result in a $1,000 fine, up to one year in prison and restitution for wildfire suppression and rehabilitation costs for any fire resulting from those actions. The BLM hopes that everyone will celebrate our Independence Day in a safe and responsible manner. Please do your part and report any fires by dialing 1-800-974-2373 or #FIRE from any cell phone. For further information, contact Josh Olsen (208)-3085991.

Owner Al McCord invites everyone to come in and check out all the new additions to the market - including our new full-kitchen. Wednesday - Friday 12 - 6pm Saturday 10am - 3pm

Fishing R epoRt The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR July 3 FRom picabo angleR


very terrestrial summer is ahead of us! The dry spring and projected heat for the next few months bodes well for trout anglers and fish alike when it comes to big fly opportunities this summer. If you’ve paid very close attention lately you will notice a few things. First, there are ants everywhere! Ants are turning up in all kids of places, most are small, but if these little ones are prolific, chances are the flying ants will be as well. Keep some patterns in your box, because this activity can pop up at any time this summer, on any day, morning, noon or night. Once fish lock on Ants hitting the water, it’s hard to get them to look at anything else. Next is the Cicada. The Cicada population is big this year, and should only get bigger. These tree dwelling terrestrials make fish crazy and fat at the same time. You can find Cicada action on almost all rivers, with the South Fork of the Boise and the Big Wood being some of the best places. Cicadas love the heat and get louder and louder as summer moves forward. They fall in the rivers quite frequently and represent and enormous amount of calories to a trout. This is another fly not to leave home without! Finally, the baby Hoppers have hatched and from what we can see there is a massive amount of them. The dry ground most likely helped this hatch along, and the dry summer coming up is going to force these insects to the river’s edge in search of greener grasses. Anglers can plan on fishing baby hoppers within the next 2 to 3 weeks and adults soon after. The bulk of what we have seen are pale yellow and tan. Hoppers work on all our area waters. The Dave’s Hopper is excellent on the Big Wood and Upper Lost, and foam patterns like the Club Sandwich or the Morrish Hopper are excellent choices on Silver Creek the South Fork of the Boise and the Salmon River. One thing you can be sure of is there will be a Hopper shortage when it comes to fly inventories this season. The major fly tying companies are still playing catch up from last year, so many shops are low on inventory across the board. We ordered early and have plenty of selection so come by Picabo Angler and we’ll help you get set up for all the above mentioned terrestrials.

A Colorful 5k Run BY KAREN BOSSICK

R Gear Up Your Pooch for

Summer with Ruffwear

unners are being encouraged to Paint the Town in all shades of paint colors with a most colorful fun run on Saturday. Janel Passey, a senior at Wood River High School, is organizing a color run called Paint the Town 5K on Saturday as part of her senior project. This is the first year Wood River High School has offered seniors the opportunity to complete their project during the summer before school begins, according to Heather Crocker, director of communication for the Blaine County School District. Runners will be doused with colored paint powder at four different color stations during the run. The proceeds will go to Girls on the Run and Higher Ground Sun Valley. Girls on the Run builds self-esteem in girls through running. Higher Ground offers recreational opportunities to those with disabilities, including military veterans who have been injured in Afghanistan or Iraq. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am a passionate runner and I love giving to others,â&#x20AC;? said Passey.


Color runs may have their inspiration in Indian festivals in which celebrants are doused with colored paint. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve becoming increasingly popular, spreading across the world from South America to Boise, which recently had its own color run. An official entity known as The Color Run kicked off in January 2012 and has grown to more than a hundred events with a million-plus participants in 2013. Passeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run will start at 8 a.m. at the Wood River High School dirt parking lot and wind through the neighborhoods of Deerfield, Old Hailey and Foxmoor before returning to the high school. Runners are cautioned to wear white shirts and sunglasses or eye protection. Everyone should be prepared to be covered in color by the time they reach the finish line. Cost is $20 for adults, $10 for youth 17 and under and $40 for a family of four. Race day registration is an additional $5. The first 200 registered will be guaranteed individual packets of powder paint to throw. To register go to tws

ack Rizzo, Wood River High School junior, is an avid freestyle skier and plies his trade by being a member of the Sun Valley Ski Team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love skiing, and freestyle really lets me express myself. There is nothing more satisfying than executing a flip perfectly. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes me the happiest,â&#x20AC;? Rizzo said with a smile. He is so adept that he competed in the junior nationals in the dual moguls competition last year and placed 17th out of 50. But before he hits the slopes again this winter Rizzo will be navigating the Middle Fork in a kayak as an apprentice guide for the Orange Torpedo River Company based out of Oregon. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on trips with them the last three years and this summer was lucky enough to be hired on. He will be on the river from July 9 to August 10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be going on two consecutive trips with probably one day off between them. It will be a tough experience but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really excited about it. There will be a lot of work and most of it will be really physical. Besides the paddling, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll set up and take down the camps and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also do all the cooking.â&#x20AC;? To prepare, Rizzo went on a four-day training session in Oregon that was comprised of two day-trips and one two-day excursion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went out with experienced guides and they taught us everything they could. This included good rowing techniques, safe portage and helping people look out for water hazards in the river. For me, I just love being on the river. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been

kayaking since I was twelve and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a big adrenaline rush to go through the rapids.â&#x20AC;? Born in San Francisco, Rizzo moved here with his parents when he was five years old. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also when he first went skiing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started on Baldy first. My dad took me up and pushed me down the hill and said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Go,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? he said with a laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At seven, I joined the ski team and then at nine the race team, where I focused on downhill and slalom. At twelve, I switched to freestyle because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy racing as much anymore. Freestyle is much more relaxed and a lot less strict. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also less focused on drills and training. In freestyle

you have a lot more fun. You just go on the course and ski it. We start in early December and ski until the mountain closes. We compete every week beginning in January and all the home competitions are on Baldy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a fun sport to do. People on the team are great and a lot of fun to hang around with. Freestyle also adds a whole new dynamic to skiing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s both tricks and competition. Not only is it enjoyable to do a flip, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also quite a challenge.â&#x20AC;? tws

Ketchum Arts Festival - Meet the Artist Series


Jon Adams, Wood Creations

have lived in Hailey almost 11 years, having moved from Sacramento, Calif., where I worked for a liquid and solid rocket company. I have stayed here because of family, fishing, and the beauty of Idaho. I started doing woodworking when I was 12 years old, but not seriously until 1990. My brother, Dr. Thomas Adams, was my biggest influence. He taught me many processes in my earlier years. The rest of my training was self-taught. I started making raised dog and cat dishes here in Hailey because of so many animals in this area. I also make hand-turned hardwood bowls, cedar chests, redwood burl tables, shaker benches, and cutting boards. I also make custom pieces including floating bookcases, burl tables and custom dog dishes. I am

the only woodworker who sells at the Ketchum and Hailey Farmers’ Markets each year. All of my art is functional, a requirement of all my pieces. Wood is a terrific and satisfying medium in which to work – nature provides most of the beauty. I have participated in the Ketchum Arts Festival for two years. The organizers and the vendors make it a special event. The satisfaction of having someone want something you have made by hand makes it all worthwhile. To a beginner, I would say don’t be afraid of failures as they are an important part of learning. Persevere and never give up. (Find Jon Adams at the Ketchum Arts Festival, July 12-14.

Orchestra Hosts Music and Margaritas

Hilarie Neely and Nancy Winton enjoy a margarita by Blackbird Pond, which sits in the backyard of Jon and Linda Thorson’s home north of Hailey.



ormally, musicians in the Sun Valley area don’t have to worry about heat affecting the tuning of their instruments. But Susan Snyder and other members of the Wood River Community Orchestra were sweating it Sunday evening as the temperature climbed to 93 degrees in Hailey as they prepared to play for their Music and Margaritas fundraiser party.

Of course, their fears were easily soothed by a glass of wine. Patrons had no problem keeping their cool under the towering trees that border the impressive Blackbird Pond in the garden at the home of Jon and Linda Thorson north of Hailey. The pond, which is fed by the Hiawatha canal, got its name from the blackbirds that faithfully return to the area every Feb. 23, said Linda Thorson. tws

Kids Garden Teaches Deadheading and More STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


ust five years ago it was a neglected patch of land covered with knapweed. But now this small triangular plot of land north of Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum is a source of wonder, blooming with possibility for children in the Atkinson Park Youth Recreation Program. The children tromp through the garden each day, planting seeds, watching them emerge from the soil and learning about the bugs that nurture them. Then they savor their freshness and crispness. “We teach kids how to garden and eat healthy foods,” said Poo Wright-Pulliam, who took over the program last summer. The park was created by a group of people who sat down to figure out what the greatest use would be and decided upon the community children’s garden, said Master Gardener Dawn Peterson. “We thought in economic times like these we need to get back to being self-sufficient and we need to teach people how to do that. We decided to start with the kids and expand to adult education in the future.” The City of Ketchum donated the neglected weed patch. A host of individuals and businesses, including Sawtooth Wood Products, Bigwood Landscape, Building Materials Thrift Store, Flower Design Studio, Warm Springs Resort, Moss Gardens and Webb Landscape donated nearly $30,000 of recycled wood and other materials. And a number of volunteers, including children from Pioneer Montessori and Sun Valley Junior Hockey, pitched in to do the work. “It is one of a few low-cost, volunteer-driven, communitybased projects the Parks and Recreation Department has undertaken. The Parks and Recreation Department incurred only about $650 worth of outof-pocket expenses,” said Jen Smith, who heads up Ketchum’s Parks Department. The garden is modeled after a four-plot Tudor garden. Many ancient gardens took such a form based on Genesis: “A river went out of Eden to water the garden and from thence it was parted and became into four heads.” “This survived to the four-fold plots in Tudor gardens,” said Peterson. “Four is also the number of creation, the symbol of nature. There are four winds of heaven, four seasons and four corners of the earth.” There are eight 4-by-8 raised beds in the garden’s center, each divided into four sections, which are called Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring. Arches covered with hops connect the beds and there’s been talk of a local brewery using the hops. Marigolds keep the insects down and flowers around the fence are designed to keep the sheep out as they pass by on their way to summer pastures. The remaining six raised beds are 4-by-12 and include the Grow-a-Row bed dedicated to provide food for The Hunger Coalition and a wheelchair-accessible bed. A gazebo storage shed completes the scene. Kids under the tutelage of gardeners like Alpha Herich and Natalie Kapp grow chives, arugula, beets, squash, cabbage, chard, tomatillos and lettuce worthy of blue ribbons at the Blaine County Fair. They learn about companion planting. And they learn to iden-

tify plants through scavenger hunts and other games. “I like it because this garden has all these different interesting things that are not in my garden at home—things I didn’t even know existed,” said Sarah Gallis, who was in on the beginning of the garden. “The garden’s really fun, especially when it comes to eating raspberries,” said Toby Molter. “I learned to deadhead,” said Dean Shaw. Lots of water fights come with gardening—provided the kids each pull five weeds first.

And the garden has become a springboard for substituting healthier foods, such as veggies wrapped in pita bread, for cookies and chips in after-school programs. The kids have incorporated foodstuffs into healthy snacks, as well, making such things as rhubarb cookies. “We have nothing but healthy snacks now and the kids love it,” said Maggie Burbridge. “They seem to have more energy to play. And their parents are extremely grateful to have the kids tws eating healthier.”


Stanley to Throw Party for New Library, Saturday

The tiny mountain town of Stanley has a brand new library, and the public is invited to a grand celebration and open house from 4 to 6 p.m., this Saturday, July 6. Stanley Community Library trustees, staff and volunteers led a capital campaign to raise nearly $600,000 in private funding for the new 2,050square-foot facility. Close to 300 individuals, businesses and foundations from around Idaho supported the project, which was completed without any tax dollars whatsoever. The new library is part of a larger development, Stanley Town Square, which includes retail and office space, several condos, and a café. Stanley’s library started as an allvolunteer organization in 1979 and became a local taxing district in 1998. For the past 13 years it was housed in a small rented house. The new facility adds shelving, workspace, a fireplace reading area, and a large community room, complete with a kitchen. The library is open 34 hours a week (42 hours in the summer) and provides 24/7 WiFi for locals and visitors. It has a collection of nearly 7,000 books and audio books, including a large selection of recently published fiction and nonfiction. Adult programs, like book club discussions and lectures, and children’s services, including weekly Story Time and a summer reading program, enrich the lives of Sawtooth Valley residents. The July 6 celebration will include a brief dedication ceremony starting at about 4:30 p.m. Appetizers, cake and drinks will be served. For more information, contact library director Jane Somerville, 208774-2470 or com

Carrie Morgridge introduced Paleo bakery items at Hailey Coffee Company because she didn’t want to lose customers who chose to follow the Paleo way of eating. Other businesses, such as Lava Lake Lamb, also cater to Paleo eaters with special meat packages.

Paleo Diet: Eat Like Cavemen


C 920 S Main Hailey • 208-788-2216 •

BOARD OF TRUSTEES VACANCY TRUSTEE ZONE NO. 5 Blaine County School District Announces A Vacancy On The Board of Trustees In Trustee Zone No. 5 General Description of Trustee Zone 5 Boundary: Trustee Zone 5 includes areas North of Quigley Drive, East of Quigley Gulch, North of Myrtle and East of Buttercup Rd (including South Hiawatha Drive, Indian Creek and Valley Club areas, excluding Old Cutters Subdivision), east of Highway 75 to Ketchum, East of Trail Creek to rejoin Highway 75 near Big Wood Golf course, North to County Line. Please direct specific questions regarding Trustee Zone 5 boundaries to the Board Clerk.

arrie Morgridge eats like the cavemen did. If it’s a nut or seed, she’ll eat it. If it utilizes milk from a cow, resembles a grain or a legume or contains granulated sugar, she’ll wave it off. Morgridge is among a growing number of people who are ascribing to the Paleo diet, which dotes on meats, seeds, nuts, vegetables and fruits. “These are foods our Paleolithic ancestors consumed—foods we’re genetically wired to consume,” said Kyl Samway, a personal trainer with 5B CrossFit. 5B CrossFit is a gym that promotes short, all-out physical conditioning programs utilizing pull-ups, jumping rope and carrying odd objects. “We eat like it’s 10,000 B.C. We focus on real foods, that which grow on trees, etc.” There are more than 200 Wood River Valley residents who ascribe to the Paleo diet to some extent, estimates Morgridge. Many, like Morgridge, were introduced to it by 5B CrossFit. “I find it helps me feel better. I feel clearer, more energetic. My body doesn’t feel weighted down and sluggish and I don’t have the sugar highs and lows,” said Morgridge, an avid mountain biker, road biker, trail runner and skate skier. “If I go off it, I get a stuffy feeling or a heavy feeling

in my stomach like you get from overeating—it just sits there. “I’ve also noticed a difference in other people, too. I see them doing things in the gym that they couldn’t do before.” Morgridge is so sold on the Paleo diet that she researched and tweaked recipes, eventually introducing a line of Paleo bakery items at her Hailey Coffee Company. She sells some of those items at Starbucks and Main Street Market in Ketchum, as well. Morgridge’s lineup includes Paleo brownies, carrot cake, fig newtons, chocolate chip cookies, date cookies, apricot bars, banana bread, banana coconut muffins, blueberry muffins and chia seed bars. “We sweeten them with natural sugar from dates, bananas or sweet potatoes,” Morgridge said. “We use almond milk instead of dairy milk, coconut flour instead of wheat flour. “I never expected to be selling this much Paleo, but there is a demand for it. And it’s not just CrossFitters. Other people who are interested in eating healthy are buying them because they’re sugar-free, dairy-free and gluten-free. And they taste good, besides.” Heidi Watanabe of Hailey is among those who have bought into the Paleo diet concept. She says she follows it about 80 percent of the time.

Anyone interested in this vacancy should contact: Laurie Kaufman, Board Clerk Blaine County School District 118 West Bullion Street Hailey, ID 83333 (208) 578-5003

“I would just as soon eat a big bowl of yogurt, rather than all the meats. But I’ve found I sleep so well since I’ve been on it,” she said. Breakfast for Paleo eaters like Morgridge and Watanabe might consist of eggs with spinach and salsa or spaghetti squash accented with nuts and avocado. Lunch might be a big salad with chicken and grapes. And dinner might feature a beef stir-fry. Samway cautions against blending foods like spinach and carrots into smoothies because, he says, it changes the glycemic index of the foods, prompting the eater to get hungry quicker. “Chew as much as possible,” he said. “Cave man didn’t have a Cuisinart. And stay away from processed foods—they mess with our hormone level, spiking our insulin level.” Lizzie LeFevre, a dietitian with St. Luke’s in Twin Falls, said there’s something to be said for eating natural foods. But she worries that the Paleo diet leaves out some good foods. Kathryn Guylay, who teaches nutrition classes in the Wood River Valley, concurred: “It works for some people—a lot of people lose weight on it. But be aware: It can be an expensive diet with all the fresh fruits and vegetables and meats you eat.”

Berry Good Bread

Tis the season for strawberries, once again. They are yummy and reasonably priced, so here’s a recipe that you can easily make for the Fourth, or anytime, for that matter. It’s very good for breakfast simply topped with some whipped cream cheese; or it’s also good for dessert. For the Fourth, it would be very nice to place a thick slice loaded with cream cheese by the side of a blueberry-strawberry-raspberry mélange that has a nice dab of crème fraîche or vanilla ice cream on top: a bit of that red, white and blue to celebrate our independence. Happy Fourth to all!!!! Strawberry-Nut Quick Bread Makes one 9-by-5-inch loaf Ingredients: 2 eggs 1 C. sugar 1/2 C. oil 1 ½ C. all-purpose flour 1 tsp. baking soda 2 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 tsp. salt 1 ½ C. of your favorite chopped nuts 10 oz. sliced strawberries – fresh, preferably, but they can be frozen Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Spray or oil thoroughly a 9-by-5-by3-inch loaf pan. (I also sprinkled some sugar on the bottom.) In a good-sized bowl, beat the eggs, sugar and oil until well combined. Whisk the flour, soda, cinnamon and salt till well blended in another bowl. Add the dry ingredients to the mixed liquid ingredients and mix well. Batter will be thick. Lastly, add the berries and chopped nuts. Spread the batter in the pan and bake on the middle rack for 55 to 65 minutes. (For myself, I made half a loaf and used the same sized pan so the bread turned out a bit less thick. It baked in about 4045 minutes.) Let cool in pan for about 10 minutes and remove to a wire rack to further cool. It also freezes well.

No-Churn Flavored Ice Cream BY MARGOT VAN HORN


hanks go to NPR and to hearing Nigella Lawson, fabulous Italian cook and author of cookbooks, talk about her recipe for this ice cream. Well, I love coffee-flavored goodies and I LOVE ice cream, so this recipe was just up my alley. I couldn’t wait to look it up on the ’net. I couldn’t wait to get all of the proper ingredients to make it. I couldn’t wait to get it in the freezer. And that wasn’t until a late p.m., so guess what I had for breakfast? So, now, just in case you are not in the “know,” I wanted to share her recipe with you. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I have (oh dear, I hate to get on the scales in the morning because honestly there are a TON of calories here); however, as Nigella says, she’s never without it and I know why. I haven’t priced this out; however, I do think that it is cheaper than buying a good coffee ice cream and certainly it is better. I can’t wager how good it is for the waistline, though—sorry.

espresso coffee, which I now keep in the freezer and mixed 2 Tbsp. of the granules with 2 tsp. boiling water) 2 Tbsp. of some sort of coffee liqueur 1 1/4 C. HEAVY cream Two one-pint airtight containers Directions: Put the condensed milk in a bowl and stir in the espresso powder or the substitute I’ve listed and the liqueur. In a separate bowl beat the cream until it reaches soft peaks. Fold the cream into the condensed milk mixture and pour into your airtight containers. Freeze for 6 hours at least or overnight. I found that I had to do it overnight for it to reach its properly frozen state. Delicious, and you can serve the coffee flavor with melted chocolate. Or I was thinking that you could even swirl melted chocolate in the coffee flavor which I’m going to try next time I make that flavor. OK--now you want to make another flavor? Try making lemon ice cream by substituting 2 Tbsp. Crystal Light Natural Lemonade Drink Mix Powder and 2 Tbsp. lemon-flavored vodka for the coffee recipe ingredients. I bought one of those small airline vodka bottles for $1.50. I also added some lemon zest/peel in the mixture. Delicious. I can’t wait to make orange, berry and, you name it. So much more economical than buying and also so much better.

Things I learned from Yoga, Part 4, Beginners Mind BY ALYSHA OCLASSEN


live close to an elementary school, near enough that I can hear the children on the playground at recess. Some people have told me the noise would bother them but I love it. There is something so beautiful about the laughter of children. It is filled with such joy and hope, such wildness, completely free of self-consciousness or care for the world’s problems. They have not yet learned that life can be heartbreaking and exhausting and, in response, turned jaded or cynical. At times I admit I envy them. And I find it mildly comical that they dream, just as I did, of the time they will be grown and in charge of their own lives. The cosmic joke is when we reach that time, we wish to return to the lighthearted freedom that we, as children, so took for granted. Is it too late for us, the fully grown, to feel that liberated? We are so weighed down with life responsibilities—our kids, our jobs, our mortgages, and trying to save for the future. Adulthood can feel super unfun, the carefree childhood years feel so far away. In yoga, the masters teach us of the Beginner’s Mind. It is the concept that we can reclaim some of that innocence and wonderment by changing our perception of our world. As kids, everything seems so new, so it’s


all exhilarating. But most of us, at some point, settle into some kind of routine and the shiny newness of life loses its luster. When I first began teaching Pilates, I felt a sense of newness and anticipation. I felt I had found something I was good at, that really helped people. There was curiosity to learn more and gratitude for the gift I had been given to pass on to my students. Now, so many years later, that newness has faded, but the reasons I chose this job remain the same; I love helping people see all the incredible beauty they all have inside them. I love helping my students find strength in themselves they didn’t know was there. I love watching as they get to know their bodies better, and I love watching my clients leave happy. And so, even though I have been doing this job for a very long time, each day can feel like the moment I first discovered I wanted to teach. And by focusing on the newness, I open myself up to fabulous new discoveries that keep me and my clients interested, eager and coming back for more. That is Beginner’s Mind—the willingness to see each new day through fresh eyes and the opportunity for learning that each new moment has. Everyone can access Beginner’s Mind. Pick the most mundane thing you can think of in your life and the next time you encounter it, remember back to

Alysha Oclassen

the first time. Feel that heartfelt excitement. Allow yourself to see something positive and new about the circumstances surrounding you. It truly is all about perception. The choice is yours alone: Live a life that’s boring and exhausting, or live a life where you go to work every day, excited, conscious of everyday miracles, and laughing like a 5-year-old at recess. As for me, I’ll be by the swing set, cheering you on. tws

Aspen Tree Farming: A Labor Of Love STORY & PHOTO BY BALI SZABO


ecently, our Valley papers had articles on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;going local.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Sustainability Center in Hailey is getting its foods and produce from a 200-mile radius. The Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market is open. Knowing where our food is coming from is just part of a larger puzzle. Our supermarkets are carrying fresher regional produce when possible. The principal benefit is economic and, to a lesser extent, health. Try as we may, we cannot eliminate nasty chemicals from our lives. For instance, a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ovary has many residues, and the placenta is not the barrier we once thought it was. Toxicants are overwhelmingly omnipresent. At home, your best friend is a good vacuum. One of your worst enemies is house dust. Every day we sleep with the enemy. Bill McDorman recently gave a talk on saving seeds, a great antidote to industrial plant species genocide (monoculture). We can take one more step and save local seeds from native plants that thrive here. Native plants take their respective seats in the local ecosystem orchestra. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve recently run into Debra and attorney William Lee Ranill, owners of the Black Bear Ranch and Tree Farm, located near Chocolate Gulch and the mountains of the North Fork of the Big Wood, a few miles north of Ketchum. They bought the 2 ½-acre property 20 years ago and went to work like homesteaders, making the house loveable and, on weekends, slowly remediating the land to resemble the larger environment that surrounded it. In some ways

The Ranills relaxing by their pond.

it reminded me of what I faced with the Habitat eight years ago. About the same time, the Ranills decided to reforest the property and reclaim a pond and its barren shores. A man after my own heart, Lee loved the quakies, and he wanted to plant thousands of aspen trees. He found those supplied by the local nurseries wanting. Shipped in from Utah, they snapped under the heavy snow loads, but their seeds produced hardier trees. Today, all his trees are grown from native trees. Now, they bend, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t break.

There was an old aspen tree, mostly uprooted, nearly dead, its branches hanging in the pond. Lee propped it up with some big rocks, it revived and became his mother Mormon tree, producing lots of seeds that repopulated the shore and helped re-create a proper riparian environment (healthy water requires shade). Early on, the Ranills had the unenviable task I can relate to. They had to hand water thousands of trees with hoses to make up for sprinklers hostage to the wind. They finally fixed that. Today, they have 2700

potted trees in the basic No. 1, 3, 5 and 7 sizes, all for sale, and 10,000 trees overall that include willowsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;good companions to aspens. This labor of love shows when Lee talks about the trees as individuals. Their growth patterns are unique, so they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all look the same. Their branches start at ground level, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a bare trunk and a crown. We do see that in the wild, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because deer love young shoots and eat the lower branches. It may seem that aspen are plentiful but, in fact, they are

Trailing of the Sheep Fundraiser Lures Masses to Sheep Ranch



flock of sheep grazed on the tall grass in front of the Peavey ranch house Saturday morning, indifferent to the 18 tables that Mary Austin Crofts and Curt and Kirby May were lining up across the field. The trio filled gopher holes with dirt and hammered table legs where need be until they had the tables absolutely straight. Then, additional volunteers came along, topping the tables with tablecloths, tucking silverware into napkins that had undergone a half dozen folds and setting potted petunias and wine glasses on the tables. They’d scarcely finished before the guests started arriving—150 men and women decked out in their finest cowboy hats and bandanas who had opted to spend the afternoon in a landscape far removed from the manicured golf courses and condos of Sun Valley. “I love the history, the wide open spaces, everything,” said Pat Etheridge, who moved to Ketchum from Arizona three years ago. “It’s so beautiful out here.” The Sunday picnic was a fundraiser for the Trailing of the Sheep Festival, which is held

each year in October. It also was designed to celebrate the preservation of the Flat Top Sheep Ranch, the largest privately owned ranch in Blaine County, through a conservation easement with The Nature Conservancy of Idaho. The temperature gauge in one car registered in the mid-90s as it turned into the Peavey ranch after a trip up over the dusty road that climbs over Muldoon Summit above Bellevue. But that didn’t stop at least three dozen people from accompanying longtime Flat Top Sheep Ranch owner John Peavey through knee-high grass and sagebrush to the gravesite of ranch founder James Laidlaw on a hill overlooking the ranch. The Scotsman, who had one of the largest sheep operations in the United States at the time of his death, at age 81, had specified that his sons not receive their inheritance until they had buried him on that hill, Peavey told the group. When the elder Laidlaw died in January of 1950, there was three feet of snow on the gravesite, so they had to keep his body in cold storage in Boise until spring. It was impossible to dig through the stone with axes and shovels, so they had to

dynamite a hole, Peavey added. When Laidlaw’s wife died, they couldn’t dynamite another hole because they would’ve blown James all to bits. So they cremated his widow and dug a small hole for her ashes on top of James. Peavey added how Laidlaw had brought the first Angus cattle to the area from the Midwest, along with the first Suffolk sheep from Scotland. He also pioneered roads across the lava flows, including those at what is now Laidlaw Park and Wagon Butte. “He thought this was eureka,” Peavey said. “He wrote all the folks in the old country and invited them over. They endowed the area with Scottish names.” While John Peavey pointed out the lay of the land, his wife Diane Peavey regaled visitors with stories of what it was like to live in bitterbrush country after marrying John and moving from Washington, D.C., 32 years ago. She soon discovered to her horror that she was expected to help with the sheep. She wasn’t nuts about the idea of inserting tags onto the sheep ears, vaccinating the lambs or branding them, given the eau de burning wool in the air. “I asked what the fourth

option was. It was castrating them,” Diane said. Because of the heat, many picnickers opted to eat their lamb chops and strawberry shortcake under the towering trees shading the lawn in front of the Peavey ranch house. There, they listened to Gary and Cindy Braun sing “North to Alaska” as they viewed paintings local artists had painted along the Little Wood River and bid on auction items that included a cattle drive past lava buttes and rock monuments built by sheepherders. Those who did eat at the table that had been so meticulously prepared sat with parasol in one hand and fork in the other. When they could grasp the forks, which had baked in the sun, that is. “Holy cow!” exclaimed one diner as he dropped his scorching-hot knife. “I’m not sure you’re allowed to talk about sacred cows on a sheep ranch,” responded another diner. The Peaveys agreed to a conservation easement with The Nature Conservancy after they were faced with having to sell of parts of the ranch, said Toni Hardesty, the Idaho Nature Conservancy’s state director. As a result, a “huge” portion of


Clockwise from Right A few dozen people braved temperatures in the mid-90s to view James Laidlaw’s grave overlooking the Flat Top Sheep Ranch. John Peavey describes how he and his son Tom, who just assumed leadership of the ranch operations, trail cattle to Highway 24 near Burley in winter. Susan Crowe and Joan Valaas shade themselves with parasols handed out to picnickers while eating. Chuck Lockhart fills his plate with hors d’oeuvres. Curt May and Mary Austin Crofts show off the perfectly straight line of 18 tables that they patterned after a painting of Hailey artist Karen Jacobsen that had been replicated as invitations for the picnic. The table looked too perfect to eat at. Little lambs nestled among the petunias reminded diners of the festival they were supporting by their presence.

The Trailing of the Sheep Festival has become the third largest event in the Sun Valley area, attracting thousands of people from around the world to watch folk dances and musicians representing the Polish, Peruvian, Scottish and Basque sheepherders; buy wool crafts; hear sheepherder tales; and, of course, watch the sheep parade down Main Street, Ketchum. The 17th annual Festival will be held Oct. 10 through 13.

private landscape will be protected, from the Craters of the Moon National Monument to the Pioneer Mountains, she added. “Every time I drive out here I thank my lucky stars,” John Peavey said. “No golf courses, no condos… And it’s going to stay that way, protected for all time.” John Lundin, whose family homesteaded the southern part of the ranch, called the picnic “a wonderful recreation of the way life used to be here in Idaho.” “There were 20 million sheep here at one time,” Lundin said. “Sheep salvaged the economy after silver crashed in the 1890s and it’s nice to step back in time for a few hours and commemorate the heritage of sheep in the valley.” tws

Fools, Center Announce Upcoming Seasons STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


ew York Times food writer Mark Bittman will headline the Sun Valley Center for the Arts’ upcoming lecture series, while “Enchanted April” will take the stage under Company of Fools next summer. Sun Valley Center for the Arts and Company of Fools representatives announced their upcoming seasons Monday evening at The Liberty Theatre. It was the first joint announcement since the two organizations merged. It was the organizations’ first chance to plan their calendar, knowing what each was doing so they could collaborate in some cases, noted Sally Boettger, who oversees The Center with Kristin Poole. The collaborative efforts will involve The Center’s upcoming multidisciplinary projects on China and an exhibition titled “Wish You Were Here.” Here’s a look at what’s coming up.


“Shipwrecked!”—This play, by Donald Margulies, will run Dec. 10-29. It features a Victorian gentleman who dares to be whisked away in a story of the high seas populated by flying wombats, giant sea turtles and a man-eating octopus. It explores how far we’re willing to blur the line between fact and fiction to leave our mark in the world, said John Glenn. The Second City, a comedy act from Chicago that spawned such comedians as Gilda Radner will be back for the 10th year Jan. 10-11. “Good People”—This is a

tough but tender play due to run Feb. 19-March 8. It’s about the insurmountable class divide between those who make it out of the old neighborhood and those who find themselves left behind. The play, which was just on Broadway, explores the struggles of shifting loyalties that come with the haves and the have-nots in this country. It was written by David Lindsay-Abaire, who also wrote “Rabbithole,” which the Fools staged a few years ago. But it’s much lighter than “Rabbithole,” noted Denise Simone. “Enchanted April”—This play, by Elizabeth Von Arnim, will run July 1-26. It revolves around two frustrated English housewives who decide to rent a villa in Italy to get away from their bleak marriages. Their world is irrevocably changed when they recruit two very different English women to share the cost. The Fools also hope to offer the public a chance to show how set designer Joe Lavigne comes up with the sets he creates for Fools presentations.

Ian Frazier, Feb. 6—A humorist for The New Yorker, he is the author of “Travels in Siberia.” He is funny and insightful, focusing less about going on vacation and more about what traveling means, said Poole. Mark Bittman, March 6—This author of “How to Cook Everything” and “Food Matters” was a host of the PBS series “Spain: On the Road Again.”

This will be staged as an intimate cabaret-style evening at the nexStage Theatre. La Vent du Nord, March 22—This group is one of the most loved Quebec folk groups in the world. Dala, April 16—These winners of the 2010 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the Year return for an encore performance. While here, they


will be working with Wood River High School vocal students and teaching high school juniors preparing for their senior projects about stage presence and presentation skills. Poole said The Center is also exploring the idea of a ticket series that would encourage those who attend the lectures but never the music series to jump in and try one or two of the music performances and vice-versa. She noted that the high school’s new Wood River Humanities Club is using the lecture series as its central focus. “We do it to get people engaged in conversation, and we tailor it for adults, but it’s been rewarding to see how many students are getting engaged,” she said.

Sun Valley Ice Shows Begin Thursday

Shows to Feature Ryan Bradley and Others BY KAREN BOSSICK


yan Bradley takes a spin on the ice rink outside Sun Valley Lodge, his Kansas City Chiefs ball cap pegging him for a tourist. But Bradley, a 2011 U.S. Gold Medalist and Silver Medalist, is making himself a local this summer. Not only will the St. Joseph, Mo., native headline Sun Valley’s July 4 ice show opener, but he will remain with the cast most of the summer. “This place is so magical—it’s outdoors, it’s surrounded by this beautiful scenery. You can’t help but fall in love with it,” he said. This summer’s show will feature a stable of core artists, including Darlin Baker, Jumpin’ Joe Sabovcik, Natalia Zaitseva, Brent Bommentre, Craig Heath and Joel Dear, said Kim Navarro, who skated with Brent Bommentre at the World Championships in 2010 before retiring from competition. They’ll be joined by special guests each week, who include 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist Evan Lysacek, back-flipping Surya Bonaly and four-time World Champion Kurt Browning. Bradley will skate two routines, including a spoof on “Harry Potter.” Other numbers will include hits from such Broadway musicals as “West Side Story” and “Cats.” And there will be an act involving fire—a fire dance featuring Ashley Clark, to be specific,

bird’s nest has already appeared in the charred cradle of a tree burned in last summer’s Halstead Fire near Stanley. The tree was found off Valley Creek Road north of Stanley off Highway 21. Some areas, such as the hike along Marsh Creek to Big Hole, saw a mosaic burn pattern that left a decent amount of green. Other areas, such as the Seafoam area, were burnt more heavily.

Logging Truck Activity to Increase

Logging truck activity near the town of Fairfield is expected to increase in the next few weeks due to a forest thinning project in the Chimney Creek drainage northwest of Fairfield. The timber from the West Camas timber-thinning project was sold in an auction last week to Boise Cascade Wood Products, LLC. There will be approximately 100 truckloads hauling 500,000 board feet (MBF) to LaGrande, Ore., over the next few months. Trucks will travel the 1100 Road south to Highway 20, then southwest to Mountain Home and onward to La Grande. Recreationists in the Chimney Creek drainage should drive with caution as there will be logging traffic on the roads. This forest-thinning project is designed to remove diseased trees, promote resistance to insects, reduce threat from uncharacteristic wildfires, establish new regeneration, increase forest production and increase structural diversity. For more information about the timber sale, please contact Frank Marsh at (208) 384-3389.

Ketchum River Park Design Approved

The Ketchum City Council recently approved a contract for the final design of the River Park at Sun Peak, a project that will restore wildlife habitat, reduce flooding risk to downstream properties, and allow the creation of a whitewater park and other recreational amenities. The city plans to pay $103,717.25 of the $269,035.00 contract in fiscal 2012-13 and the remaining $71,155.50 in 2014. Private donors will contribute the remaining 35 percent of the final design contract cost or $94,162.26. Private donations for the project, which was initiated in 2008, have totaled about half of the costs so far for the federal land conveyance application process that would allow the park to move forward. The River Park at Sun Peak, to be created in cooperation with the Wood River Land Trust and myriad stakeholders, would offer trails, river and pond access, habitat restoration, wildlife viewing, dog play areas and whitewater drop structures along approximately 1500 feet of the Big Wood River north of Ketchum near Hulen Meadows. The whitewater portion of the proposed park would offer recreational opportunities in the early spring and summer floating seasons. The park also would provide a place for novice to expert kayakers to test their water safety skills. The city hopes to complete the river park as soon as all approvals are received from various local, state and federal agencies, Smith said. The city would like to begin construction in 2014 with opening in the spring of 2015 if the necessary approvals can be obtained in time.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My luck at finding a soul mate is a bit questionable. I've been divorced twice and have pretty much given up on marriage for myself. However, I have a knack for helping others find their perfect partner. I started by setting up my best friend with my coworker. They hit it off and got married only a few months later. Then I set up my ex-husband's brother with a woman from my church. Once again, perfect match! I don't know what it is, but I can meet people and immediately tell who would be a perfect fit. I haven't missed yet in the dozen or so times I've tried. So far, eight have resulted in marriage. This got me thinking. Maybe I could start a business as a matchmaker. It seems like the perfect job for me. I was going to place an ad in the business services section, but to be honest, after that, I'm just not sure how to continue. Any suggestions? Cash: It seems your track

record for finding the chemistry between friends is pretty good. With eight marriages, you've probably attended a few weddings lately! Carry: Not surprisingly, weddings are a great place to find

Fast Facts Dating is a Game

Duane “Cash” Holze & Todd “Carry” Holze 06/30/13 ©The Classified Guys®

clients for a matchmaking service. People are often excited about dating again after a wedding. Although, they might be excited after a divorce as well! Cash: Before you jump into this profession, you should study up. One of the best ways to get started would be to talk with other matchmakers who can offer you some insight into the business. Then, you can build on the successes you've already had. Carry: The business will involve more than just matching people. Professional matchmakers typically operate on a local basis and often rely on word of mouth to gain new clients. That means you'll have to sharpen your marketing skills.

Cash: Remember that any business can be hard work. As you know, you will need to meet with a lot of people to interview potential clients and matches. Carry: You will also have to set up contracts for your services and a fee schedule. Most matchmakers charge up front based on a length of time or the number of matches. Cash: Fortunately with your current track record, you're off to a good start. And if you enjoy working with people through the dating process, it could be a lot of fun for you as well. Carry: And who knows, you may just meet Mr. Right along the way. After all, the third time is a charm!

Dating has always been entertaining. Despite all the recent reality shows such as The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, one dating show remains timeless, The Dating Game. It first aired on December 20, 1965 on ABC and continued through much of the 80's and part of the 90's. Over the years, many famous people appeared as contestants (before they were famous) including Oprah Winfrey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steve Martin, Michael Jackson and Tom Selleck, who appeared twice and lost both times.

Polling the Numbers

Sometimes it may feel like you're the only single person out there, but according to the U.S. Census, 44% of adult Americans are single. That's about 100 million people in the same situation. However, when you meet someone new, remember that first impressions count. It's estimated that men take only about 15 minutes to determine if the first date is worthy of a second. Women, on the other hand, don't rush to judgment that quickly. They can take up to an hour to decide if their date should have a second encounter. •

Reader Humor Back in the Game

After I broke up with my boyfriend, the girls in the office took me out for drinks at a singles bar. After chatting for a while, they left me on my own to meet some new people. I was sitting there for merely a minute when a short man with a tall ego sat down next to me. I could tell he was a player from the first moment. When he asked me for my phone number, I politely obliged by writing it on a cocktail napkin and returned to my group of girls. Laughing at the whole event, one of them said, "He was definitely the bar fly type. You didn't give him your real number, did you?" "Of course not," I smiled back. "I gave him yours!" (Thanks to Sally R.)

Everyone who participated made a huge impact in getting national and worldwide attention for Bowe Bergdahl and his plight as well as reminding the Bergdahl Family how much we love and support them.

It was a gorgeous evening graced by beautiful surroundings and musical sounds. Sitting outside with my little Poodle, Hugo, who seriously loves music as well, it was a moment of pure heaven. Those of you who missed this concert, make sure to come to the next one on July 24th— you won’t be sorry. Also, congrats to Brad Hershey, the conductor, for being chosen to attend a conducting seminar at Julliard this July. WOW!!!! Margot. Although it’s ostensibly a film about zombies -- and one that, at its best, ranks right up there with anything in the verrry intense and scary “Alien” films -- “World War Z” is easily one of the most affecting and moving FAMILY-oriented dramas I’ve seen in a long time...a movie whose jawdropping Israel sequences alone are well worth the price of admission all by themselves! Perfect companion piece to Steve Soderbergh’s “Contagion.”
