Bike Festival and Championships Photo & Story By KAREN BOSSICK


s many as 500 of the nation’s top mountain bikers are expected to descend on Sun Valley next week for the USA Cycling Mountain Bike Cross-Country National Championships. Top contenders include Adam Craig, a 15-time national bike champion, and Georgia Gould, who swept all six events on the national mountain bike series in 2007, says Sun Valley Chamber Director Greg Randolph, himself a member of the U.S. Olympic road cycling team at the 1996 Olympics. The Bike Championships starts on Wednesday, July 13, and will run through Sunday, July 17. The Ride Sun Valley Bike Festival will be held at the same time. The Festival will offer four free semi-guided mountain bike rides during the week with transportation provided from the Sun Valley Visitor Center to the sites of the rides. The Wednesday ride starts at 8:30 a.m. taking riders along the newly refurbished Red Warrior Trail to Greenhorn Gulch. The Thursday ride, also at 8:30 a.m., heads to Baker Creek. Friday’s ride, which meets at the Visitor Center at 9 a.m., is called the “Baldy Burner.” There are two Saturday rides leaving at 9 a.m. One 22-mile ride, billed as “the mother of all stokers,” heads to Fox Peak via the East Fork of Baker Creek. The easier 11-mile ride follows Curly’s Trail from Baker Creek to Easley Hot Springs. The Fat Tire Criterium—open to children and amateurs--starts in front of the Sun Valley Visitor Center on Sun Valley Road and East Avenue Ketchum at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. It circles around on Leadville Avenue, Fourth Street and Walnut Avenue. “It’s supposed to be a wild ride that will make everyone cling to the edge of their seat,” said Ellen Gillespie, who is helping organize the event.

Explaining Stage Fright



lenn Stanton, who will sing in Sun Valley Opera’s “Midsummer Night’s Serenade” on Sunday evening at the Sun Valley Pavilion, says the key to a good stage fight is taking it s-l-o-w. “Slow down and look and see how good you are,” said Stanton. “If you go at the speed of an actual fight, it’s a blur to the audience and they don’t get to enjoy the art of the fight. It’s like doing a ballroom dance in which you have to be in sync with your partner.” tws


ary Roberson used to be a big game artist, spending weeks in Yellowstone National Park each winter and summer “bagging” moose and grizzly for her impressionist paintings. Then she put in a flower garden. As she got down on her hands and knees working in the dirt, the Hailey artist became awed by the insects she saw crawling around and hummingbirds buzzing above her. Now, five years later, two stuffed pheasants have found their way into Roberson’s 400-square-foot painting studio where trophy heads of bison, moose, elk and bear used to serve as reference. And her piles of magazine articles focus on the birds that have come to dominate more of her paint time. “My new paintings are more colorful, more fun. And I have a lot more fun painting,” said Roberson, who will show 4 ½ feet. some of her new art at the Ketchum Arts She titled one of her recent paintings Festival Friday through Sunday at Festi“Nature is Everything,” reflecting the val Meadows in Sun Valley. fact that she now cares as much if not Roberson can’t quite explain the turnmore about the little things than “the big around. brown things.” “The mystery of creativity—you don’t That painting features a wolf sitting question it.

Sun Valley Opera Presents Midsummer Night’s Serenade, this Sunday at the Pavilion By KAREN BOSSICK


lenn Stanton played middle linebacker at Ohio Northern University with aspirations of being a pro football player. But a funny thing happened on his way to the NFL. He fell in love with singing arias. “It was shocking because my dream had always been to play football. But I took music classes in college and started to get the same kind of feeling that I had gotten with football. I love the sharing with the audience that music and live theater give.” On Sunday at 8 p.m. the Chicago actor and singer hopes to realize that feeling once again as he performs with four other young singers in Sun Valley Opera’s “Midsummer Night’s Serenade” at the Sun Valley Pavilion. The other performers include tenor Cody Austin, who last year made his professional debut with the Opera Company of Philadelphia; baritone David Lara, who just completed his second summer as an apprentice with the Santa Fe Opera; baritone Nathanial Hackman, who has performed Figaro for Virginia Opera and the Bing Crosby character of “White Christmas” for Cumberland Playhouse; and Terri Richter, who has performed with Seattle Opera and Opera Idaho. During the first half of the concert they will sing some of the favorite arias that have been performed over the Sun Valley Opera’s 10-year history, including “Toreador” from “Carmen.” Following intermission, they will perform favorite hits from the 1960s through the ‘90s, including “Brown-Eyed Girl,” “You Raise Me Up,” “Save the Last Dance,” “Viva La Vida,” “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World.” They also will sing new arrangements that Sun Valley Opera Music Director Brett Strader has made of music by such artists as Elton John, Coldplay and Bryan Adams. Strader formerly conducted the Hour of Power Orchestra during TV broadcasts for the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, Calif. “Ten years ago we could only afford artists from Boise,” said Sun Valley Opera co-founder Frank Meyer. “Now we’re bringing in world-class voices from throughout the United States and we have a music director.” Singing both opera and pop won’t be a stretch for Stanton. He does it all—from performing with a rock group named “Korephase” to performing in “Romeo and Juliet” for Chicago Shakespeare.

Glenn Stanton, who has sung everything from Rat Pack music to classical, says he’s humbled by the opportunity to share the stage with four other young-and-upcoming artists in Sun Valley. “I don’t know what I did to deserve this,” he said. COURTESY PHOTO

He also does film, speaks several dialects, including Australian, Irish, Russian, British and German, and is skilled in using rifles, assault rifles, pistols, powder guns, broad swords and rapiers on stage. He just finished performing cutting-edge martial arts and katana fighting as Queens Shogun “Grand Master Mak” in a post-apocalyptic New York City Samurai tale at Chicago Shakespeare Infusion Theater called “Soul Samurai” that Stanton said was almost a comic book for the stage. “I’ve been blessed to work with some of the best fight directors in the country and the thing I’ve learned about fighting is that there’s as much care in that fight as the rest of the storyline. You can’t react to a punch until it’s on its way or the audience knows it’s fake and you’ve lost them,” said Stanton. “What I’ve learned from acting is genuine honesty. The better at acting you get, the less acting you have to do. It’s about finding the truth in a character and sharing it, and I find the same truth in music. When the audience senses that truth, they open themselves up. It’s a sort of out-of-body experience I wouldn’t trade for anything.” tws

ou may have noticed that many of our native plants have hairy leaves. If you haven’t noticed, take a closer peek. Sagebrush is a wonderful example. Those hairs actually serve the plant well – especially during these hot, dry summer months. If you have spent any time in the sage, you know that sunglasses can be a good idea, and the plant can appear silvery in color. This is because the hairs can help reflect some of the incoming solar radiation – it is possible for plants to get too much light. More importantly, the hairs create what is called a boundary layer between the plant and the outside air. The humidity level inside a plant is 100 percent; our summer air may be 30 percent. This creates a steep difference between the internal and external environment. The steeper the difference, the more quickly sage loses internal water to the outside air through the openings (stomata) on its leaves. The hairs work to trap some of that moisture against the surface of the leaf. It may have only a small effect on the steepness of the difference, but it can dramatically reduce water loss from inside the plant, helping it to survive when water is at a premium. tws

Fishing R epoRt

The “Weekly� Fishing RepoRT FoR JUly 6, 2011 By: Jim sanTa


ith the long awaited and renowned brown drake hatch on Silver Creek now behind us we’ll turn our focus to what’s on tap as we enter July. We’re now officially into summer with the 4th of July right around the corner. The true summer weather we’ve been experiencing is doing a good job of flushing the remaining snowpack down the rivers and we should have seen our peak and we’ll soon begin to see the levels drop and the water clear. I would expect this to take awhile and we probably won’t see great angling water for another 2-3 weeks. Hopefully we’ll have at least some fishable water to coincide with the green drakes on the Big Wood. This is typically a great hatch and can provide some really good fishing if water conditions cooperate. We’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime we can focus on the preserve waters on Silver Creek for our most consistent and best option right now. We are seeing hatches getting stronger with the nice weather. Expect to see pmd, baetis, and green drakes with best times being mid morning and mid to late evening depending on the heat of the day. This will become earlier and later as we move into the hotter days. A couple other options that are coming into play would be the Little Wood south of Carey and if you’ve got a boat the South Fork of the Boise is now at a reasonable boating level. The couple of reports I’ve had for the Boise have been that fishing is still pretty slow with many fish still spawning, but we can look forward to some really good fishing on all of our waters fairly soon now and we should have great water and great fishing all season. Please give us a call for the latest reports and enjoy your Independance Day!

Play Hide and Seek with the Ballhead Waterleaf Photo & Story By KAREN BOSSICK

p for a game of hide and seek? You’ll get it with this flower. The Ballhead Waterleaf is in its full glory on the trails throughout the Valley—from Adams Gulch to Greenhorn Gulch, and even over to Mormon Hill northeast of Carey. But you’ll have to look under its big green lobed, hand-like leaves to find it. The floral ball resembles a pincushion with all the stamens protruding from it. The flower, which grows up to an inch and a half in diameter, emerges in spring and is often found along streams and in woods where the snow has just melted, such as the groves of trees in Taylor Canyon north of Ketchum. says Native Americans and settlers used to cook the shoots and leaves as vegetables before the flowers appeared. They’d boiling the shoots and leaves in water and flavor them with vinegar. Want to know more? The Sawtooth Botanical Garden offers Wildflower Walks each Thursday. The walks are held from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., leaving from the garden at Highway 75 and Gimlet Road. Cost is $10 for members and $15 for non-members.  To register, call 726-9358. tws

Ketchum Arts Fest By KAREN BOSSICK


ore than a hundred artists and craftsmen will exhibit their work at the Ketchum Arts Festival Friday through Sunday at Festival Meadows next to Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church on Sun Valley Road. There’s a pirate’s hoard of jewelry, clothing, hats, floor mats, quality inlaid furniture and whimsical sculptures. Artists include former Wood River Valley jewelry designers Michele Black and Terrance Deemer; Ketchum artist Jennifer Bellinger who has recently added “Desert Botanicals” to her portfolio; Bob Rodman, a selftaught jeweler from Fairfield; and Hailey artist Pippi Konstanski, who makes wire jewelry. There are also a number of artists from around the state, including Dave LaMure, Jr., whose glass, bronze and raku clay sculptures were featured on HGTV’s “Modern Masters” series and chosen by Sophia Loren as “Best of Show” at a New

Mexico art festival. Twin Falls artist Sandie Davis creates shadowbox picture frames that can be customized with a favorite picture or quote. And Kris Lammers finds “tired old pieces of furniture,” which she calls “old dogs,” and brings them back to life—hence, the name of her work: “Old Dog, New Trick.” This year the festival will boast a free Kids Activity Tent for the first time. There will be painting, puppets, bubbles, hooping, collage-making, stories and face-painting from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. there each day. The Paul Tillotson Trio will head the list of performers, playing from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Other favorites like The Kim Stocking Band and the Mighty Shims will play, as well. And, there will be plenty of food available for sale—from coffee smoothies to Sun Valley Brewery microbrews. The festival will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. tws

boutique of one-of-a-kind organic cottons, handpainted silk and wool scarves, wearable art and accessories has opened next to Cristina’s Restaurant in Ketchum. The new shop comes with a little Indian music, a little chai tea, a little flavor of curry and, as its owner Gay Odmark says, “a little sense of being somewhere else.” Gay Odmark, the Indian-born artist who has long lived in Ketchum, has become Gay Odmark, shop keeper. She calls her boutique “Lotus.” “My dad always told me, ‘To transcend the murky water—the sadness and grittiness of life—you have to be like the lotus,” she said. The storefront, which is owned by chef Cristina Ceccatelli Cook, holds its grand opening today at 180 East Avenue. It will be open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. It features a mix of clothing, art, Indian soaps whose sale helps Indian children and their mothers go to school, and other one-of-a-kind items made by local, national and Indian designers and artists. There’s hand-painted silk and wool, T-shirts featuring prints of endangered species and unique quilts made by entire villages out of sari material from Calcutta. “Many said, ‘We’ll send you clothes. It’s an honor to be in Sun Valley,’ ” Odmark said. Odmark also has a couple of shelves of coffee table books on Indian culture and art that customers can peruse while sipping a cup of tea.

Nate Galpin designed the Lotus sign above the door of the new boutique.

Local artists to date include Czech painter Anna Lintner Majernikova, clay sculptor Marta Hollenhorst, portrait pillowmaker JoEllen Collins, jeweler Kary Kjesbo, eclectic jeweler Elizabeth Meyer, etcher and printmaker Jen Galpin Mikesh, textile worker Susan Hall, and

accessories artist Vicki Currie. Odmark will even have some of her own Indian-influenced prints for sale. “Everybody wanted this,” she said. “Everybody like Sisters and Theodores. And they’ve been very encouraging.” tws

Idaho 1 of 3 Wants to Keep Pets Safe, Happy By RIAN ERVIN



)($785('23(1+286(6 2SHQ:HGQHVGD\-XO\SP

















ets are an important part of our Wood River Valley community, and it is rare to walk around downtown Ketchum, go on a hike up Adamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gulch, or on a casual bike ride without seeing at least a few of our furry friends tagging along with their owners. Despite the happy lives that the majority of our pets lead, Idaho is only one of three states that currently does not have felony penalties for animal cruelty and neglect. In an effort to protect our domestic animals, a non-profit organization, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Idaho 1 of 3,â&#x20AC;? is dedicated to changing the current Animal Care Law. In 2009, Virginia Hemingway, president of the organization, tried to change these laws, but was unable to get approval from congress. Now, along with a dedicated group of volunteers, Hemingway is leading an Initiative, which is in the process of gathering 60,000 signatures from Idaho voters. With these signatures, the Initiative will bypass congress and be placed on the November 2012 ballot. The adjustments to the Animal Care Law would include a definition for â&#x20AC;&#x153;torture,â&#x20AC;? changes to penalties, an increase in fines

for misdemeanor violations, additional penalties for subsequent violations, and violations for intentional cruelty. Julie Lawson, co-coordinator of the signature drive in our valley, hopes to obtain at least 4,000 signatures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although we take pretty good care of our animals, there are situations where these laws are necessary,â&#x20AC;? Lawson explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until now, people havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really realized that Idaho is lacking these laws.â&#x20AC;? In order to help, Lawson says that people can volunteer to collect signatures, and that local businesses can provide locations to sign the petition. Our pets deserve to be treated with love, and with this Initiative we can help to make sure they are always safe. tws

To sign the petition you can visit one of the many following businesses: The Wood River Animal Shelter, Sawtooth Animal Center, Barkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Basement, Sawtooth Equine Service, Chapter One bookstore, Windermere Real Estate, Atkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Sun Valley Animal Center, St. Francis Clinic, Sawtooth Feed & Tack, Thunderpaws Pet Shoppe, J.Alison, and Sothebyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

A Fun Night Out These are the Longest Days habitat for non-humanity



ircle Mirror Transformation” could indeed set acting classes back. But this Company of Fools production makes for a delightful evening of summertime theater. It’s theater’s version of light summer reading, if you will. The play, which The New York Times called “absorbing, unblinking and sharply funny,” won young playwright Annie Baker the 2010 Obie Award for Best New American Play. It features a yoga teacher played by Denise Simone who is teaching her first community center drama class in a small Vermont town. Beth Hilles plays a former actress from New York who dives into the exercises, including one called Circle Mirror Transformation, with abandon. She is joined by a lonely divorced guy played by Scott Creighton, who wants to improve his social skills so he can reenter the dating world. Andrew Alburger plays the instructor’s husband, who is taking the class so his wife will have enough students. And Russell Simone Wilson plays an awkward 16-year-old who wants the lead in the next high school play. The play is composed almost entirely of improvisational activities, including one in which the actors pose as stuffed snakes and baseball gloves, to stimulate creativity. And, once you get past the first counting game, the exercises are a blast. The cast is superb right down to college student Wilson who does a nice job of playing a teenage girl who is seeking the role of Maria in “West Side Story.” The funniest character is

To know if you go

What: “Circle Mirror Transformation” When: Tuesdays through Saturdays through July 23. Shows start at 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Where: Liberty Theatre in Hailey Tickets: $30 for adults, $20 for seniors 62 and over and $10 for students 18 and under. There are 10 front row seats available for $10 each every night. Groups of six or more can each purchase a $20 ticket. And Girls Night Out on July 5 includes $20 tickets, $4 wine and beer, post-show champagne and chocolate and a chance to win treats. Tickets are available at www., by phone at 208-578-9122 or at the box office.

undeniably Beth Hilles, who is manic in her enthusiasm and thereby over-the-top entertaining. Make sure you get a seat close enough to the front so that you can see the whites of her eyes and her facial expressions. While the play focuses on comedy, it does feature some poignant, revealing moments in which the audience learns about the characters’ dreams—and vulnerabilities. There are some emotionally powerful moments offering up unspoken truths about humanity that each of us can take home with us. And, as a bonus, we even get some basic instruction in hoopin’! “It’s a very smart, specific and succinct play… a very sweet story,” said Director John Glenn. “The whole play is a wonderful smile,” said Simone. “These are characters you fall in love with, characters you feel good about.” tws



ell, climate change and global warming finally took root in Idaho. The sun came out! The mountains, as usual, were the last to fall to the power of the Solstice. For a gardener this is the busiest time of year. With the spring we’ve had, it’s a war against the weeds. The seeding and planting was done long ago, and the beds have been meticulously handpicked. About 25 percent of the Habitat is paths—tamped-down clay hardpan that resists the shovel. If the paths get overgrown, the place looks shoddy, unkempt, confused and hard to see. There’s also the need to prevent re-seeding. Most weeds I deal with have soft bristles. Once they flower and go to seed, they dry out. That fuzz lining the stems turns to spines. Forget grip and pull unless you have stainless steel gloves. So it’s now or never. June is the Maginot Line, the Battle of Midway. Win June, and I win the war, just in time to retreat before high summer’s heat. A labor of love and war in the same sentence? Absolutely! Naively (what a surprise!), I paved many path sections with the baseball-sized rocks I dug up from the beds. Bad idea. The weeds love those rocks. Their moisture-seeking roots curl under and around them, while the clay sets the rocks and pebbles in cement. Uprooting anything is an exercise in futility. The stems just snap off. So I’ve had to undo all that work and lug over 50 gallons worth of rock back to the ‘quarry.’ A weedless garden path requires the laying of a roadbed

Gettin’ ready for the tourists.

not unlike that of Hailey’s Route 75. Instead, little by little, I’ll remove the rocks from the top 6 inches of all the paths (about 1000 feet), which will make them easier to weed. That’s my counter-insurgency strategy— all without Agent Orange and Napalm (Roundup). My garden tools have turned into weapons—plowshares into swords. Every afternoon is back to the chain-gang task (and I don’t even get a dollar a day) of busting rocks, wielding picks, on my knees, grunting and sweating, working off a winter of indolence


and weight gain. Gardening like this requires patience for the nitpicking minutia; gentility with firm resolve. Historically, the task was left patronizingly to the ‘little woman’ to play with, while the men were off to conquer the world. It takes a warrior to wrest beauty from life, or peace from the calamities of mind. There’s a world to conquer, and to understand, right here. I earn my beers. tws If you have question or comments, contact Bali at this e-mail:

he really good news is that the new film Larry Crowne greatly exceeds expectations. Pretty much a chick flick, the Tom Hanks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Julia Roberts starrer will appeal to adults looking for something more than what most summer movies have to offer. Directed by Hanks from a script he co-wrote with Nia Vardalos (My Big Fat Greek Wedding) the heart of the film is the chemistry between its two mega stars Hanks and Roberts. Having worked together in Charlie Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s War there is definitely a connection between the two and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that connection that makes the film float. Hanks plays a box store worker who has frequently been honored as employee of the month. To his surprise he is called in one day and fired for

his lack of a college education which he passed up to serve in the Navy for twenty years. Corporate downsizing is the world that we live in today and the plot twist adds a real dose of reality to the film. Deciding to go back to school he enrolls in the local community college where he ends up in Roberts public speaking class. Stuck in a bad marriage and saddled with an alcohol problem she hardly strikes a heroic figure. Meanwhile Hanks has rebuilt his image with the help of a young free spirit played by Gugu-Mibatha-Raw. As Robertsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; marriage crumbles the attraction between she and Hanks becomes more and more obvious. One of the delights of this romantic comedy is that the relationship is never consummated during the course of the movie as we watch the attraction grow. Hanks does an admirable job of directing and the two leads could not be more charming. Of course charm can carry you a long way and those looking to be entertained by the two mega stars will not be disappointed. tws

briefs This Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Friday Night Movies at Bellevue Memorial Park kick off this week with Goonies

Hot Summer Nights started four summers ago in downtown Bellevue and continues to flourish. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movies will begin July 8 and run through September 2, taking August 12 off. The movies begin at dusk and a cartoon is always shown prior to the main feature. Due to the success last year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve once again purchased brand new movies and will sell $1 raffle tickets to raffle off the only once-viewed movie to one lucky winner when the movie is complete. This is simply to recoup the costs of purchasing new movies for improved viewing pleasure. So get your blankets and low-back chairs ready and come on down to Bellevue Memorial Park for free, familyfriendly entertainment this summer! We will continue to sell popcorn and other refreshments as well. All monies go to the non-profit group who organizes the event, Building Balanced Communities, which then donates money to other groups and causes in the Wood River Valley. Schedule of films: July 15 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; August Rush; July 22 - The Secret Garden, in conjunction with the Bellevue Garden Tour Library fundraiser event; July 29 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Mask; Aug. 5 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Homeward Bound; Aug. 19 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Yours, Mine and Ours; Aug. 26 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The NeverEnding Story; Sept. 2 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marley and Me.

Still Standing with Bowe By KAREN BOSSICK


en Bradley is the same age as Bowe Bergdahl. But he never met his counterpart, having moved to Hailey six months after the young Army sergeant was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Still, he joined about 50 people Thursday afternoon in a demonstration of support for the Hailey man as Bergdahl started the beginning of his third year in captivity. “I wanted to show support for someone in that position,” Bradley said. “And I hope to meet him in person very soon.” Four TV cameramen and 10 members of the Boise Valley POW-MIA group who motorcycled to Hailey for the event were among those who showed up at Zaney’s River Street Coffee House in support of the Hailey man who was captured on June 30, 2009. Hailey Mayor Rick Davis read a statement from Bergdahl’s parents, Bob and Janie. “We are reminded of the wisdom spoken to us by former prisoners of war Render Crayton and Jerry Coffee soon after

Bowe’s capture,” the statement said. “Those two men, who know exactly what Bowe is going through, told us to have a longterm plan. During the summer of 2009, our family started pacing ourselves for the long haul, just like we believe Bowe has been doing. “We have not forgotten Bowe and we have not forgotten every single act of your support to bring Bowe back home with honor,” they added. “Please continue with us in this ordeal by remembering all those suffering the consequences of this war and praying that peace may come to Afghanistan.” Sue Martin, who owns the coffee house where Bergdahl once worked as a barista, handed out yellow ribbons to those attending—something she’d hoped to be done with by now. Stephy Smith wasted no time posting a few more yellow ribbons of support. She had Jim Banholzer, whose business card advertises “Able Bodied Man with a Truck,” pull his truck up to a telephone pole on River Street where she could tie a ribbon “to keep River Street ribboned up.”

Jennie Lewis shows off a plastic camouflage wallet with a yellow ribbon tied in Bowe’s memory. PHOTO: KAREN BOSSICK/SUN

The withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and the killing of Osama bin Laden have kept Bergdahl in people’s thoughts, Martin said. “My customers come in and ask about Bowe all the time—every day. And a lot of out-of-towners learn about Bowe through our Bowe Bergdahl board,” she said, pointing to a board with well-wishes for Bergdahl. “We’re on our third board.” “All we can do is take it one day at a time,” said Hailey Police Chief Jeff Gunter, a close friend of the Bergdahl family. “And hope for not too many more one days at a time.” tws


financial planning

Perception is Not Reality By PATRICK M. BUCHANAN State Farm® Agent


hen it comes to American families and financial planning, perception is not reality. Although they are overwhelmingly optimistic about their financial future, their financial planning habits paint quite a different picture, according to a recent study commissioned by State Farm Life Insurance Companies and conducted by KRC Research. The study reports that although 82 percent of Americans are optimistic about their financial futures, American families in reality are not adequately saving or protecting their finances. From saving habits and financial goals to life insurance coverage and retirement saving tools, American families have room to grow when it comes to protecting their financial futures. Americans cannot just “hope for the best”; they must take a critical look at where they are financially and lay out a clear road map that guides them to their hopes and dreams. Key highlights from the study show the gap between perception and reality: Savings Habits Perception: Most Americans (82 percent) are optimistic about their financial futures. Reality: Nearly four in 10,

more than 77 million Americans, say that they live paycheck to paycheck and are not able to put money into savings. Life Insurance Perception: More than seven in 10 Americans are confident that they have enough life insurance. Reality: Only 12 percent of Americans report having the industry recommended coverage of seven or more times the family’s annual income. Retirement Savings Perception: The majority of Americans (58 percent) are not worried about outliving their retirement savings. Reality: Many Americans are not utilizing a full range of retirement tools. Social Security is the most prominent source of retirement income over other retirement savings tools, with a fifth of Americans reporting that it is their only or main source of retirement income. The sooner you start planning for your future, the better off you’ll be. Small investments made early can make a big difference in your financial health later in life. Don’t put off plantws ning for your future.

Part I of Theater Trilogy By KAREN BOSSICK


he Royal Larkspur Players are taking on a challenge—that of presenting a theater trilogy that won a Tony Award for Best 2009 Revival over the coming year. Don’t let it stop you from seeing the first, if you don’t think you can see all three. Each of the plays in “The Norman Conquests” can stand alone. “The playwright Alan Ayckbourn is an absolute genius. He had the incredible idea that characters don’t die when they leave the stage. So why not have characters leave one room of the house and go in to another and start a new dialogue? And then he said: Why not have them start yet another dialogue in the garden?” said producer Gary Hoffman. The first play, “Table Manners,” will be presented as a staged reading with costumes, sound effects, lights, music, stage props and acting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at The nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Admission is free, but donations and the cost of refreshments will be accepted for the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley. If you’re expecting knights on horseback taking part in the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, you’ll be disappointed. The Norman in the title of the

play refers to a quick-witted librarian and woman magnet—“a gigolo trapped in a haystack,” in his own words. He is married to an up-and-coming, acid-tongued executive named Ruth, who has learned to put up with Norman even though he’s a great deal to put up with. “He’s childish, deceptive, a lothario and altogether adorable,” said Hoffman. In the first play, Norman seeks to run away for a weekend with his sweet, lovable sister-inlaw Annie, who has been trapped in a Victorian country house taking care of her invalid mother. Annie has enlisted her brother Reg, a childlike real estate agent who’d rather be making model airplanes, and his high-strung, overbearing wife Sarah to take care of their tyrannical mother without telling them of her real plans. And then there’s Tom, the neighboring vet who comes over to spend time with Annie. The play is wildly comic at times, Hoffman said, and poignant at other times. Hoffman said he plans to present the second play, “Living Together,” in the fall. He hopes to present the third, “Round and Round the Garden” in late spring or early summer. The play stars Shauna Smith, Cam Cooper, Joy Bond, Davis Hein, Adam King and Tawni Baker. tws

or recent Wood River High School graduate Katherine Dwyer the world is her oyster. That’s probably because she has lived in so many exotic places and has traveled the world extensively. She has spent so much time overseas that when she moved to the valley she was known as ‘that Russian girl’. That was when she was 13 and had already spent most of her life in Europe. Born in Amsterdam, she was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of two and traveled to the U.S. until she was cured and moved with her family to Moscow at the age of four. At eight she moved to England for two years and then it was back to Russia for another three years. “Traveling so much has given me an open mind on the world,” she said. “Most people haven’t had the opportunity to see what I’ve seen and experience all the different lifestyles that I’ve seen. Like living right in the middle of Moscow - it’s such a crazy place. It’s so different here because it’s so nice and calm and easy going. There it’s just go go go. The traffic is really ridiculous. People would avoid it by driving on the tram tracks and then pay off the police. Because I went to an international school I had a lot of interesting friends. My best friend’s father was the ambassador to Latvia. We also didn’t have cliques like we have here. Basically people hung out with people from the same country but I liked to cross over. Basically everyone lived at the embassies so if I wanted to hang out with my English friend it was at the English embassy. We did normal kid’s stuff like go to birthday parties, the circus, hanging out at the river and going into the city with adults. But everywhere you went where security checks and the police were always present even though the rules aren’t strictly followed. There is also a class system there now. In the city 80 percent of the cars are Mercedes and BMW with tinted windows and security vehicles following. When you go to a top restaurant the women dress very extravagantly and no one talks about Communism.” Between stays in Russia she spent two years in England outside of Bristol. “I attended an all girl’s prep school there and it was quite an adjustment. It was funny because I was known as the ‘American girl’ and when we put on plays I always played the American. The school was very British and we sang hymns every morning and we had to

ince summer is upon us and mountain bike “season is open,” let’s start with the clavicle, because it’s the first bone in the body to form (at five weeks) and the last bone in the body to finish developing (at 20-25 weeks). It is one of the most common bones to break, accounting for 5 percent of all fractures and nearly half of all the fractures involving the shoulder area. Typically, the clavicle breaks in the middle. Until recently, clavicle fractures, other than fractures at the very end of the bone, have been treated conservatively with a sling, a figure-of-eight, or some type of immobilization. With “the tincture of time,” they typically heal 95 percent of the time. The Canadian Orthopedic Trauma Society data suggests operative treatment may provide for improved outcomes. There has been a general trend toward surgical fixation or Open Reduction & Internal Fixation (ORIF) of clavicle fractures. Healing in the surgical group occurred at an average of 12 weeks faster than with non-operative treatment (16 vs. 28 weeks). That’s impressive. Fractures, like people, are

wear uniforms. To this day I know how to make a tie better than most boys. They also have a real reputation for being snobby but I found them to be very genuine.” She has also had the opportunity to travel and has seen a great deal of the world including Egypt, Dubai, Thailand and most of Europe. “I love to travel. I’m just so used to it and going places by myself. I feel it’s what has made me grow up to be an independent young woman.” “When I moved to the valley in seventh grade it was very hard to adjust. When people talked about bands or food I didn’t know anything. On the first day of school when everyone stood up and sang the national anthem I didn’t know any of the words. Even though moving here was shocking at first I’m so glad I stayed because it’s been so much fun. A lot of the kids that live here say there is nothing to do but I don’t think they appreciate the freedoms that we enjoy here. It’s awesome to just go to the mountains and be on the river. You never have that opportunity in Russia. Sure there is more to do in a city but it’s nice to walk around town and hang out and know everyone. I know it can get old after awhile but I’ve been lucky because I’ve had the opportunity to leave. A lot of the kids want to get out of here but when you leave you see how lucky you are to live here.” tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My dad was a collector. He filled his house with stuff I can't imagine anyone else would want. He had a 6-foot stuffed blue marlin in the garage that he didn't even catch. Then there were the ten huge boxes of used spark plugs, his bottle cap collection and pail after pail of bent nails that he vowed he would straighten one day. Since he passed away last year, I have to clean out his house. It's completely packed, and I need to decide whether to try and sell all his things or just rent a dumpster and throw them out. I mean who wants 42 years worth of greeting cards that have already been used? Any suggestions you guys can offer would be greatly appreciated.

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: Your Dad sounds like the

type of man who saw value in everything. Unfortunately, that meant he probably kept everything too! Carry: Since it's your task to clean out the house, it will probably involve both selling some items and throwing others out. It all depends on how much time you want to dedicate to the task and

how many keepsakes you want to save. Cash: Cleaning a family member's home can be an eye-opening experience. It's possible to learn a lot about a person from what they left behind. So while the process may seem overwhelming, you could learn even more about your father. Carry: Start by setting aside items that have emotional value to you or the rest of your family like photos, letters or other keepsakes. Cash: Since your Dad was a collector, there may be many items in the house that have value. Although you may not appreciate the bottle cap collection or stuffed blue marlin, someone else may

want to purchase them. You never know who needs a collection of old used spark plugs! Carry: Consider putting the unwanted items at a yard sale. Maybe your Dad knew how valuable all that stuff was after all. Cash: Try advertising the large items like cars, appliances or furniture in the classified section. You don't need to wait for the yard sale to get started. In fact, it sounds like the added room would be helpful to your process. Carry: You can also donate useful items to a local charity. For everything else, you'll probably need that dumpster. Unless, of course, you want to mount the 6foot fish above your fireplace!

Clutter, Junk, Stuff; it goes by a lot of names, but in the end it is nothing more than items we don't throw away. And if you're one of those people, you're not alone. Experts estimate that over 3 million Americans never throw anything away, including old newspapers or even empty yogurt containers. Although the reasons for this are not completely known, researchers believe that the need to hoard is directly linked to the part of the brain that controls decision-making and problem solving. Whatever the reason, it seems many of us need to clean out the house.

Support in Numbers

We've all heard of support groups like Alcoholic Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, but did you know there is an organization called Clutters Anonymous? The group is dedicated to helping people clean out their lives by attacking the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects that cause us to collect unnecessary items. Like many other support groups, they even have a 12-step program. Today the organization has chapters throughout cities and states nationwide. â&#x20AC;˘

Reader Humor Dead Weight

At our last garage sale, my husband put out a large bucket of used rusty nails. When he labeled it $4, we told him it would never go. All morning we razzed him about selling the bucket of nails, and with each joke, he became more determined to prove us wrong. Sure enough, around 3 o'clock a gentleman came and looked at the bucket of nails. He picked it up as if to feel its weight and then walked over to our checkout table. "I'll take it," he said handing us the money. Instantly my husband cheered, "I told you someone would want those nails!" "Oh I don't want the nails," the man said as he dumped them on the table. "I'm just going to take the bucket!" (Thanks to Franny P.)
