Amazing Trout Sculpture to Mark Hunger Coalition’s Tenth

R

BY KAREN BOSSICK

epresentatives of The Hunger Coalition have been sorting through cans of food for weeks now trying to determine what will go into making a tasty looking trout. Now they’re ready to put it all together for the public to eyeball. Representatives of the Coalition will be constructing a 10-foot-tall trout sculpture out of cans of food on Thursday in the Ketchum Town Square Plaza next to Starbucks. There will be music by the Kim Stocking Band from 6 to 8 p.m., as well as other surprises. The public is challenged to guess the number of cans that make up the sculpture. Participants can wager their guess through the coalition’s Facebook page or during the celebration. The winner will get a prize. There also will be a “Fill the Fish” raffle fundraiser with a chance to win Fly Fishing 101 lessons from Silver Creek Outfitters, a $100 gift certificate from Boca restaurant and other prizes. The idea is to celebrate The Hunger Coalition’s tenth anniversary and to raise awareness about hunger in Blaine County, said Director Jeanne Liston. “You’ll have to see the trout to believe it!” she said. The Hunger Coalition kicked into high drive with the recession that began to be felt in a big way in 2008. It still serves clients who have suffered fallout from the recession, many of whom are 50 and older and have difficulty finding work or work that pays well enough to supply their needs. The Hunger Coalition also offers a Summer Food program that serves lunches from 11 a.m. to noon weekdays for children 18 and younger. This year for the first time it is offering a Sack Lunch Program for food-insecure youth participating in summer camps in partnership with the Blaine County Recreation District, YMCA and Atkinsons’ Park. For more information, call 208-788tws 0121.

loria Moore Osberg has hiked plenty of famous trails, including the Chilkoot Trail that served miners heading to the Yukon goldfields in the 1890s. Perhaps, one day, the Osberg Ridgeline Trail will be as familiar to those who hike around the Sun Valley area. Trail crews just finished a major makeover of what was formerly known as Trail 142. It was renamed the Osberg Ridgeline Trail in a ceremony last Wednesday at the trailhead, which sits adjacent to the trailhead for Baker Lake. Osberg wrote “Day Hiking Near Sun Valley” in 1987— one of the first hiking guides for the Sun Valley area. She followed that up with “Easy Hikes Around Sun Valley.” She donated the proceeds from both to the Idaho Conservation League. Osberg has had to use a wheelchair since breaking her hip. But that didn’t prevent her from rolling up to the trailhead Wednesday morning and snipping a red ribbon that was strung across it. She snipped so fast that her friends asked her to repeat the ribbon cutting not once, but multiple times, so they could capture it on their Smartphones. “This is probably our flagship trail now,” Kurt Nelson, district ranger for the Ketchum Ranger District, told the group of 30 people and five dogs. The group included

Osberg’s family, Sawtooth National Forest Supervisor Becky Nourse, representatives of several conservation groups and Osberg’s former hiking buddies. Renaming a trail for someone is not something the Forest Service does every day. But it did this time at the request of the Idaho Conservation League in honor of Osberg’s philanthropy and the way her books have inspired people to get out and hike. “The Wood River Land Trust and Idaho Conservation League approached us and asked if we would consider dedicating a trail for Gloria. This seemed like the perfect trail to honor her with because it was near a cabin she and John had built near Newman Creek in 1998,” said Nelson. The trail had fallen into “bad, bad disrepair,” added Nelson. It featured 30 percent and 40 percent grades, and trail bikers had left it rutted and sandy. “Four years ago I hiked my bike and cursed the condition of this trail,” said Nelson. “It was supposed to be my fun time, but it was not, as it had been built back in the Civilian Conservation Corps era and was not user friendly at all.” Youth crews supervised by the Ketchum Ranger District and an Idaho Trails Association crew put in a full summer last year working on the trail. They obliterated four miles of the trail, replacing that section with a trail with a more sustainable grade. They raised a section of trail out of the mud and they built a bridge across the creek.

Adrian Rieder, Hanna Cheek and Patsy Wygle try to dissect an interesting array of family dynamics in “Other Desert Cities.” COURTESY Photo: KIRSTEN SHULTZ

Fools Get Thumbs Up From Viewers BY KAREN BOSSICK

If you Go…

I

t’s a family reunion you wouldn’t want to be part of. But that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy watching the Wyeth family reunion play out before your eyes. Company of Fools is staging this 2011 Tony Award nominee for Best New Play through July 27 at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey. It stars Hanna Cheek as a young woman who has left her home on the East Coast to spend Christmas with her parents in their Palm Springs mansion. And she has come bearing a gift—a memoir about something Mom and Dad don’t remember. A memoir that her staunch Republican parents fear will blow the family reputation, which includes an ambassadorship and luncheons with the likes of Nancy Reagan and Betsy Bloomingdale to smithereens. A memoir about something that caused Brooke herself to succumb to suicidal depression. Her kindly father, played by Keith Moore, is a former actor who looks like he could really use a script to navigate his way through the grenades that his wife and daughter are lobbing at one another. Her mother, played by Denise Simone, provides some witty yet pointed observations as she tries to steer her daughter away from putting the family under a microscope that none of them want to be put under. Adrian Rieder plays the peacemaking brother, who prefers to see everything through a haze of marijuana. And Patsy Wygle plays the wisecracking alcoholic aunt who takes her niece’s side—until everything starts to unravel. The elephant in the room is Brooke’s dead brother who was implicated in a domestic act of terrorism gone wrong.

What: “Other Desert Cities” When: Performances take place Tuesdays through Saturdays through July 27. The show starts at 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Thursdays and 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Where: The Liberty Theatre on Main Street in Hailey Tickets: $35 for adults, $25 for seniors and members of Sun Valley Center for the Arts, $10 for students 18 and under. Groups of six or more can buy $25 tickets. The 10 for $10 special offers each of the 10 seats on the front row during each performance for $10. Tickets may be purchased online at companyoffools.org, by phone at 208-578-9122 or at The Liberty Theatre box office starting one hour before curtain.

You may think you know these people. But, chances are, your preconceptions will get turned on their head as the play progresses. Joe Lavigne researched and designed the living room that some in the audience may be looking for a Realtor to buy it after the play. The painting on the wall, by Fools actor Richard Rush, is for sale, although you’ll likely have to wait until July 27 to take it home. The play, directed by Fools co-founder Rusty Wilson, opened last week to standing ovations. “I live in New York and go to Broadway shows and I don’t think I’ve seen any better acting,” said Sara Fair. “These are terrific actors and absolutely terrific acting,” added Sun Valley resident Jan Lassetter. “This is one of the better plays I’ve seen this group do. They’ve created a family that’s very believable, and they have a secret. It doesn’t get any better. How they learned all their lines to deliver them so naturally I have no idea.” tws

ompany of Fools is putting on the play, “Other Desert Cities,” at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey through July 27, so I thought it appropriate to write about a desert city of legend that thrived 2200 years ago, Petra, in southern Jordan. At the height of its commercial success, this Nabatean city had 30,000 residents. Today, one of the ancient world’s magnificent cities is a collection of spectacular ruins. Ornate, columned façades carved from multi-colored stone (red, blue, pink, white and brown) rise from the searing desert sand. This is what’s left—the theaters, the temples, the tombs, some carved water gods, the famous Treasury, and signs of water management that made all this possible. Petra was the Bellagio of its time, its innercity water displays strictly for show to impress visiting dignitaries. So what happened? Usually, cultures self-destruct from a combination of missteps—imperial overreach (wars), ecological resource exhaustion, myopic elites who refuse to see the signs of trouble, etc. The Nabateans started out as tribal-based, simple herders and occasional raiders of caravans laden with frankincense, myrrh, balsam, spices, precious metals, sugar, textiles, and bitumen that Egypt needed for embalming. The Nabatean homeland was at the nexus of converging trade routes, a frayed end of the Silk Road heading for Europe, Syria, the Mediterranean and Africa. They decided that being middlemen and servicing the needs of international trade would be more profitable than hit-and-run raiding. They also transitioned to a monarchy. Petra was built at the intersection of several wadis (large arroyos) that drained and cut through the surrounding mountains, allowing for the

Ruins, Negev Desert, Israel.

easy passage of caravans. Politically, they opted for peace with their neighbors; their cities were unwalled. When the Romans came calling (62 B.C.), Petra just paid them off with about 18,000 pounds of silver, a small price to pay for peace. Two hundred years later, Rome annexed Petra. Through no fault of its own, Petra lost its relevance, as trade routes shifted to the northeast toward Syria.

Prickly Members of Dalmatian Toadflax the Borage Family T

O

ne of the most interesting families of wildflowers in our Valley is the borage family. Named after the blue-flowered hairy European herb that you may enjoy in your garden or in your cup of tea, this family has a number of representatives that we see on nature walks, including bluebells, puccoon, fiddleneck, forget-me-not, and the manyflowered stickseed. The coarse, hairy leaves and stems found in most members of this family can induce an adverse skin reaction (itching, rash), particularly among gardeners who handle the plants regularly. Many borage members have their flowers arranged on only one side of the stem in a scorpioid inflorescence, in which the flower stem unrolls

like the head of a fiddle or the tail of a scorpion. In your walks along the Big Wood River, look for the blue notes of bluebells, forget-me-not and stickseed, which prefer moist locations. There is a famous field full of bluebells at Park Creek, near the summit of Trail Creek Road. Conversely, the yellow-flowered fiddleneck shows up along alleyways and in disturbed ground at the edges of trails. Besides borage, cultivated members of this family also include comfrey and heliotrope. Come along on an ERC Wildflower Walk to see these borage family members and more, on Thursdays through July 25.

he Blaine County Weed Department (BCWD) has been targeting a particularly nasty weed lately, so we thought we would throw a little light on it and show just how pervasive Dalmatian toadflax can be. Toadflax, a perennial from the Figwort family, is characterized by erect stems and can be up to four feet tall with creeping roots and bright yellow snapdragon-like flowers. It’s actually very pretty, and can be mistaken as an ornamental. The plant has waxy leaves and can produce up to half a million seeds per year; if planted, it will quickly take over your garden and won’t allow other flowers to grow. Dalmatian toadflax is most often seen in the southern part of Blaine County, in rangelands, pastures and roadsides, but in the last two seasons has been moving its way north. Toadflax has no value to grazing animals, and takes resources away from

native plants. Toadflax can be controlled with chemicals, pulling and mowing. The Southern Idaho Bug Crew works hard this time of year to establish sites for the use of bio-control, and there has been success with the use of bugs through the county to control toadflax. Should you come across Dalmatian toadflax on public land, we ask that you do not pull it and leave the plant on the ground. Toadflax seeds can still be spread by a pulled plant. If pulled, bag, tie, and throw it away. We also ask that you do not pull toadflax in preserve areas, as there is often bio-control work being done, and pulling plants removes a food source for bugs that are hard at work. For help with toadflax identification and control methods, give the BCWD a call at 788-5516 or stop by our offices in the Blaine County Annex building in Hailey.

Petra’s main resource was water. The area’s climate and rainfall has remained unchanged for tens of thousands of years. Southern Jordan receives about a half-inch of rain per year, much of it spotty. The Nabateans used basic hydroengineering techniques learned from their Neolithic ancestors 8500 years hence to create an abundance of water. Besides the mountain runoff, they also had springs. The water was needed primarily for agriculture, residential use and for the caravans. The techniques of water capture, storage and transport were refined and expanded like never before. Winter rains created torrential runoffs and flooding. Walls were built across wadis to slow the water—about 20 million cubic feet of it. A 150-square-mile catchment of terraced walls (it had to be at least 20 times the size of the area to be farmed) supplied rock-cut cisterns that held 5000 cubic meters of water. Some dams could hold 10,000 cubic meters, most 3500. Water rights were regulated by law. Piping and aqueducts transported water to town centers and residential areas. Kings took pride in the money they lavished on water infrastructure, which required a lot of maintenance, along with the buildout of pools, fountains, hanging gardens and waterfalls. Besides Petra, there were several settlements in the Negev desert that used these techniques. Some structures, initially thought to be ‘unintelligently built,’ were reconstructed by Israeli archeologists, led by Michael Evenari, in the 1950s. Excavations at other sites in the following decades led to the conclusion that Petra represented one of the most elaborate hydraulic engineering feats of the ancient world. All from a half-inch of water.

Ketchum Installs Wayfaring Signs and Looks for Help With Additional Streetlights STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

etchum got some muchneeded wayfaring signs directing people to parks, City Hall and other places of interest last week to the delight of locals and tourists alike. Although they left a few people scratching their head wondering what WoMa is and why directions were given several times to the City of the Rocks, which is more than a hundred miles away, rather than more local attractions, such as the Bow Bridge in Hailey. The landmark signs are part of the Ketchum Community Development Corporations yearlong efforts to supply Ketchum with solar streetlights and pedestrian maps to increase the town’s walkability. “There have been significant community hours behind this project and it is very exciting to see it coming to fruition. We hope that the signage and street lights will encourage more walking and exploring and contribute to the growing vitality of our downtown core,” said Jon Duval, Executive Director of the KCDC. Research has shown that additional lighting in a downtown core increases walking at night, bringing more business and vitality to local shop owners and restaurants, as well as providing

greater safety for pedestrians, especially during the precarious winter months. The new LED solar lights require no power, will not disrupt sidewalks, and are dark-sky compliant. “We have been losing light as the power lines have been undergrounded and the streetlights were not replaced. Now with new solar technology, we can have light without running power, which is a huge cost savings passed on to the city and taxpayers,” said Dale Bates, the driving force behind Walkable Ketchum and other successful KCDC projects. Nine solar lights have been installed so far and seven more are to be installed by the end of the year, funded by the City of Ketchum. A study determined that 37 streetlights are needed all told to provide the most beneficial amount of lighting in the downtown core. KCDC representatives hope community can help come up with the money for the installation of the remaining 21 streetlights. Those who wish to name a streetlight for their family or even favorite pet will receive placards on the streetlights— even at dog height—to recognize their contributions.

Mariel Hemingway Promotes Environmental Health STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

ariel Hemingway didn’t get the keys to the city. But she did get the keys to a black Chevy Cruze on loan from Manuel Armendariz of Wood River Motors last Wednesday. Wood River Motors loaned the car to the actress and author while she and her partner Bobby Williams were in town to participate in Hailey’s Fourth of July Parade and provide stand-up and narration for a documentary focusing on Hailey’s Climate Challenge efforts. Of course, Williams and she immediately began bickering in a good natured way about who would drive the Cruze, with Williams reminding her about how she had driven the transmission into the motor on her Mini Coupe by driving into a rock in the desert—an accident captured in the recently released film “Running from Crazy.” Hemingway came to Hailey from Maui where she and Williams had been guests at Oprah Winfrey’s thousand-acre estate while they plotted ways to promote the film and accompanying book now called “Running with Nature.” Representatives of the Hailey Chamber of Commerce greeted them and, CeCe Montgomery, of Style Your Life Designs, presented them with a gift basket of crocheted cotton washcloths and a variety of gift certificates from local businesses and restaurants. “Hailey is all about welcom-

ing,” said Chamber Rep GeeGee Lowe as Jane Drussel of Jane’s Artifacts engaged Hemingway in a conversation about the sense of community that Hailey offers. Hemingway was chosen to narrate the film, which is being filmed by David Butterfield, because the community wanted someone with ties to the valley. Hemingway not only grew up in Ketchum, attending Hemingway Elementary School, but she has long advocated a natural, healthy lifestyle through her books and the yoga studio she used to own in Ketchum. The City of Hailey hopes to show the documentary in other

communities to show examples of how they can reduce greenhouse gas emissions, said Mariel Platt, Hailey’s sustainability coordinator. Hemingway said it was a natural for her to lend her famous name and face to the project. “When they asked, I said, ‘Absolutely.’ David Butterfield’s mother was my schoolteacher and he knows I do a lot of environmental work,” said Hemingway, who is looking to buy a new home in the valley. “Besides, this is my community, where I grew up. There’s not a time I don’t fly in here and feel, ‘I’m home.’ ” While in the valley, Heming-

way and Williams presented a 90-minute discussion and signing of their book, “Running With Nature” at The Community Library. Even though it has “Running” in the title, it’s a reminder to slow down and feel the button as we push it through the buttonhole, said Sarah Hedrick, who owns Iconoclast Books. “It’s a reminder to slow down, to get more connected to self, to be calmer,” she added. The book was Hemingway and Williams’ joint exploration of how we can connect more to ourselves and nature, Hemingway told the audience.

“You couldn’t be in a better place to do this than Sun Valley,” she added, saying how she’d felt as if she was in heaven as she and Wiilliams had hiked up Baldy earlier in the day. “Nature teaches us how to be in our body.” Hemingway said she had to cajole Williams to let her write the book with him, finally reminding him that her last name was “Hemingway”—that of one of America’s most famous authors. The book is not a 90-days-toyour-best treatise—she added. “It’s about everything you do. It’s about your relationship to you No. 1 and then your relationship to everything else,” she said. “It’s about inspiring you to find out what works for you.” Hemingway recounted the various diets she’d been on, including a coffee diet, as she tried to find the right way to health. “I was always rushing outside myself to find the answers that come within. It took me years to find my inner voice. I want to help others get there faster. That’s why I wrote the book.” Added Williams: “People need to step back and take a look, not from other people’s perspective but your own.” tws

AN ASIDE

In response to a question from the audience, Mariel Hemingway spoke on her famous grandfather:“He felt alcohol pushed him to the edge, and he wanted to be on the edge,” she said. “He thought he wrote more colorfully that way.”

Stuck on Mountain Biking

Cars and vans with bike racks inundated Ketchum last week as riders swarmed in for the Third Annual Ride Sun Valley Bike Fest and USA Cycling Marathon Mountain bike National Championships. And local trails were inundated with bikers, keeping hikers on their toes. This bike has a SV sticker among many others. But it’s in need of a good Ride Sun Valley sticker. Photo: KAREN BOSSICK/SUN

aralympian Muffy Davis has been nominated for a 2013 ESPY for Best Female Athlete with a Disability and is looking for a few votes from the hometown folks. Friends and supporters can cast their vote for her by going to www. espn.go.com/espys/2013 and clicking on the link for Best Female Athlete with a Disability. Voting is open until July 17 when the ESPYS will take place live in Los Angeles. Just being nominated is an immense honor, Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I would so love to win the ESPY, if possible. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very honored and excited, just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have to go dress shopping.â&#x20AC;? Davis, who grew up racing for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, challenged Picabo Street for the title of the fastest woman on Bald Mountain

until she was paralyzed from the chest down when she caught an edge and careened off the cat track near Greyhawk on a training run when she was 16. She learned to ski again using a monoski and won a handful of medals at Paralympics in Nagano, Japan, and Salt Lake City. More recently, she shifted gears winning gold at the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London as a hand cyclist. She has won every hand cycle race sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enterred including the Overall World Cup Title two years in a row. Her 2012 title came after a serious neck surgery she underwent in October 2011 because she was losing functioning in her left arm. She now works as a motivational speaker, speaking at conferences throughout the United States, including the Sun Valley Wellness Festival where she appeared in May. tws

eta Verhaeghe didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even wince as she threw a cup full of chalky green paint powder right smack dab in the chest of a teen-age girl running down the street. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, they signed up for it!â&#x20AC;? she said gleefully. Indeed, a hundred runners and at least one dog running a 5K race in Hailey Saturday morning turned into virtual rainbowsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;running art, if you willâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as they took part in the first color run staged in the Wood River Valley. The Paint the Town 5K was organized by Wood River High School senior Janel Passey as part of her senior project. When all was said and done, the project had raised $3,000 for Girls on the Run, a program that teaches girls self-esteem through such activities as running, and Higher Ground Sun Valley, which provides therapeutic recreation opportunities for disabled veterans and others. The event capitalized on the growing popularity of color runs across the nation. The Color Run, which organizes 5K events throughout the United States, now organizes a hundred events a year, attracting a million participants. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even been featured on ESPN. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It looked like fun, something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never had in the Valley before, something I wanted to do myself. I talked to the organization that arranges color runs across the nation and they said they looked at Sun Valley but it was too small, so I decided to do it myself,â&#x20AC;? said Passey, 17. Everyone from psychologist Christina Tindle to 9-year-old Elise Macdonald had two words to describe why they had decided to bare their best white Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to try it: â&#x20AC;&#x153;For fun!â&#x20AC;? Never mind that it would mean

two showers in one day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done 5Ks but this is something different, something fun,â&#x20AC;? said 17-year-old Marcia Smith. Participants like Tom, Samantha, Willy and Kelly White got into the spirit of things even before the race started, painting mustaches and linebacker eyes on their faces with purple powder they got at registration. Runners threw their cups of powder over their heads as the race started, creating a purple haze as the powder settled. In no time at all runners had the non-toxic paint up their noses, in their ears, on their hair, even in their eyes and mouths. And black asphalt roads turned shades of green and orange, as well. Five-year-old Garrett Larsen and his 10-year-old sister Kennedy Larson saw the paint throwers eyeing them as they ran down the street. But it did no good to try to evade the paint throwers, who tried their best to get runners as they were coming and going. The two ran a wide circle around a handful of them, only to run smack dab into a

The runners werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only ones who got plastered with paint. Paint thrower Susan Dreyfus wore as much orange paint as the runners she was throwing paint at. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m downwind,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, if I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand here, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go around me and miss out on a nice orange coat.â&#x20AC;? Passey said that color runs draw their inspiration from Indiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Holi Festival, or Festival of Colors--a Hindu religious festival celebrating spring. There, people walk through their neighborhoods throwing powdered chalk on one another or spraying colored water on one another. She summarized the local event as â&#x20AC;&#x153;a 5K with something extra.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have posted a lot of pictures on Facebook,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already had people ask me if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do it next year.â&#x20AC;? tws

Jon rated this movie

n Gilles Bourdos’ new French film, Renoir, we have the portrait of two masters—one at the end of his career and the other at the beginning, and the woman who was a muse to both. Based on the title of the film, you can guess that it is about the Impressionist giant, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, but it is also about his 20-year-old son, Jean—who, with the films Rules of the Game and Grand Illusion, would become one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. Set in 1915 at the end of the painter’s life (in the movie he is 74 and would die four years later), we have the portrait of the great man beset with arthritis so severe that he had to have the paintbrush tied to his hand, living in a household of women in southern France who dote on the master that they call the boss. Enter into the picture Andree Heuschling, a young, precocious model that soon turns the household upside down. Quickly she

becomes a muse to the old man, who declares “Flesh: That’s all that matters!” Soon we meet his son Jean, who is recuperating from a gunshot wound suffered on the front. Andree quickly becomes his lover and stokes his interest in movies. Later in life she would become his wife and star in over fifteen of his silent films. Although not much happens, the movie illuminates the work of the two men and their tangled relationship. And in keeping with the title character, the cinematography by Mark Ping Bing Lee is absolutely sumptuous. It’s as close as you can come to the exquisite colors and shadings of the Impressionist movement in a film and a good reason on its own to check out Renoir. tws

Jewish Film Fest Continues BY KAREN BOSSICK

“A

Matter of Size” will headline the second installment of the new Jewish Film Festival Monday night. The film will be shown free of charge beginning at 6 p.m. at Ketchum’s Community Library. It’s an adorable film about a coming out of a different kind— overweight people learning to accept themselves, said Film Festival founder Linda Cooper. The film focuses on a group of overweight people from the Israeli city of Ramla who are fed up with the “dictatorship of the thinness” of the diet workshop

they participate in. They leave it and discover the world of sumo, where heavy people like themselves are honored and appreciated. Last Monday’s showing of “A.K.A. Doc Pomus”—about a Jewish songwriter who wrote a thousand songs, including many of Elvis Presley’s hits—attracted a standing-room-only crowd. The inaugural festival will end July 22 with “Orchestra of Exiles,” about a violinist who saved many of Europe’s top Jewish musicians and their family members and friends from the Nazis by relocating them to Palestine where they started a new orchestra. tws

Ketchum Arts Festival - Meet the Artist Series

I

Alison Higdon

have been doing encaustic painting for almost four years, but art in some form has always been a part of my life. My father was a dentist, and he allowed me to carve little creatures out of dental wax. Now I feel I have come full circle, back to the wax, when I sit down to a piece, bringing some ideas of texture, design and color that have inspired me. I dive in, letting the unexpected pull me. I use either birch or bamboo bases covered by a thin layer of joint compound, then add layers of clear medium, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fusingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with heat between each layer to melt the layers together. Then the creative impulse takes hold as I layer mixed-media image transfers and oil pastels to add depth

and interest to each piece. I am extremely inspired by the textures and colors of nature. As an abstract artist, I draw from my environment daily. Imperfect circles seem to be very prevalent in my work right now, representing the imperfections of nature and the beauty in how life tends to come full circle. This is my third year at Ketchum Arts Festival, and I am excited to show my new body of encaustic paintings to the KAF patrons. Find me in Booth 107 at the Festival. My e-mail is Alison Higdon @ alisonh@cox.net and my phone is 208-720-6137.

ou donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often see people dancing in the aisles at a performance put on by an opera company. But dozens of dancing queensâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;bounced up and down pointing their fingers to the nighttime sky Sunday night as the Sun Valley Opera staged â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Music of A BA: A RIVAL From Sweden.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the music of our generation,â&#x20AC;? exclaimed Sheri Hodge, as she threw back her head and started singing an A BA tune. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in our 70s and the original A BA members are, too.â&#x20AC;? The feel-good concert attracted a wide range of ages, from a 6-month-old to a 90-year-old. Fifteen hundred fans filled the Sun Valley Pavilion, and another 1,500 sat on the lawn outside, watching the concert on the big screen as they nibbled picnics of seaweed chips and shrimp. An enthusiastic Craig Jessop and the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra led off the concert with a lovely tribute to Sun Valley owner Earl Holding, who died in April. Jessop told how Holdingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work ethic made him one of the largest landowners in the West, using songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;When You Wish Upon a Starâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Impossible Dreamâ&#x20AC;? to illustrate the story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You only have to look at this Pavilion to see what kind of legacy he left,â&#x20AC;? he said. Holding acquired another dreamâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that of the iconic Sun Valley Resortâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in the late 1970s, and kept it intact, becoming what â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forbes Magazineâ&#x20AC;? called â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great entrepreneurs,â&#x20AC;? Jessop added, as he launched into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Climb Every Mountainâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;one of Holdingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite songs. A RIVALâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the only tribute band sanctioned by the original members of A BAâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;took the stage next, bouncing through a couple dozen of the Swedish groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hits. Lead vocalists Jenny Gustafsson and Victoria Norback wore white dresses slit on the side, the front higher than the back. And keyboard player Simon Sjostedt and guitar player Fredrik Bjorns wore white embroidered bell bottoms as they recreated the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dress, mannerisms and songs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all have our favorite songs and we could spend two weeks in Idaho just singing A BA songs,â&#x20AC;? Gustafsson told the audience as Norback launched into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fernando,â&#x20AC;? a song perfect for the long Fourth of July weekend.

J Harpham was manning her booth at the Ketchum Arts Festival three years ago when the wife of the prime minister of Singapore came shopping, a couple bodyguards in tow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had no idea who they wereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I thought the bodyguards were her sons,â&#x20AC;? Harpham recalled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wife said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to buy this and this and thisâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; And her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the prime ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, no, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s she buying now?!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I responded, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Go away.

The Ketchum Arts Festival, now in its fourteenth year, finds itself in a unique position, given its location in tony Sun Valley, Idaho, and its timing right at the end of Allen and Company conference, which brings such luminaries as Microsoft founder Bill Gates, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and TV mogul Oprah Winfrey to town. The festival, which features about 150 high-quality painters, jewelers, furniture makers and other artists, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just happen. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the product of five artists who work throughout the year to plan and set up the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run by artists, which is very rare in this country. In fact, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the largest artistrun festivals in the country,â&#x20AC;? said Diane Taylor, of Taylormade Pottery. Each of us has steering committee jobs, but none of us has a committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re each a committee of one,â&#x20AC;? added jewelry maker Lisa Horton. The festival was started to feature the work of the many quality artists in the Wood River Valley, although it does accept the work of a few other artists

from places like Twin Falls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You make somethingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;you have the chance to show it and sell it,â&#x20AC;? said Patty Holley, the City of Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liaison. The festival started out in downtown Ketchum when a heat wave sent the asphalt sizzling into triple digits. The first year it moved to Festival Meadows on Sun Valley Road someone forgot to turn the sprinklers off and artists arrived to find some of their watercolors running. Over subsequent years the artists have dealt with deer wandering through, eyeballing the rock art and photographs; squabbles between artists over patio umbrellas blocking the view of their booths; and occasional wind gusts that prompted calls to artists to batten down their tents before they go sailing off in the middle of the night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something that comes up that you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think about. But we learn from it and find a way to keep it from happening the next year,â&#x20AC;? said Horton. The festival offers emerging artists the opportunity to be mentored concerning such things as how to set up an engaging booth and where to get business cards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives local artists a chance to try to see if what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re creating is viable,â&#x20AC;? said Harpham. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some incredible talent in this town. The hard thing for a lot of artists is learning what they need to do to get a booth together, learning how the business part works.â&#x20AC;? The quality of artists has

The festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday at Festival Meadows along Sun Valley Road just north of Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church. A Kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Activities Tent will offer free activities from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day, allowing parents a chance to shop while the little ones are engaged making bead bracelets and other crafts. Music will be provided by The Kim Stocking Trio, Spare Change, Rick Hoel, Mike White, Erica and Dad, Barking Owls, Dewey Pickett and Howe, Paddy Wagon, Jimmy Mitchell and Russ Caldwell, and more.

If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t,â&#x20AC;? she said. The day after the festival the committee of five performs their final act, walking in line with garbage bags in hand, picking up any trash that might have been left behind. Then they start all over again with their monthly meetings as they ready the festival for next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All in all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a rewarding experience,â&#x20AC;? said Horton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given me a community of artists to interact with and it makes me feel good that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to put on something that local artists can benefit from.â&#x20AC;? tws

The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR JUly 10 FRom picabo angleR

T

he summer hatches are coming! Get ready for a fantastic week of fishing. The Cicada action continues to ramp up and big black flies are taking fish all over the place. This is especially true on any river with big cotton wood trees. If you like to throw big foam, this is the hatch for you! Baby Hoppers are also growing quick with a lot in the size 14 to 16 range. This hatch, coupled with the wind events we’ve had spell great fishing with these little terrestrials. The Baby Boy Hopper and Crickets are some of our favorite patterns to imitate the immature Hoppers. The two best hatches on Silver Creek right now are the Prairie Caddis and the Damsel Flies. This works great for anglers as the Caddis dominate the morning and evening, being joined on occasion by P.M.Ds and the Damsels have been filling the afternoon menu for the fish in the Creek. Trico time is upon us! Like we thought, the early showing of Tricos is ramping up. Fill your box with these flies and make sure you have plenty of 6X Tippet with you. You may even want to try the new Trout Hunter 6.5X tippets. We love the stuff! The Freestone Rivers like the Wood and Upper Lost are fishing well. Attractors and standards like Parachute Adams are great choices. Drop a nymph under these if the fishing seems slow. Since everything else is early this year, you may want to think about stocking your boxes with Elk Hair Caddis as the summer heat will soon make this evening hatch prominent. With that said, a few well tied Rusty Spinners are also excellent choices for rising fish in the morning and evening. The South Fork of the Boise has really turned on with Salmon Flies, Cicadas and Caddis. The fishing is hit and miss some days, but if you get the right day… hold on tight! If you go, have plenty of Elk Hair Caddis in a size 18 with a black body. We have plenty here in the store. Anglers will notice a lot more of each other on the water this week. Keep in mind we’re all out there to have fun, so please communicate, smile, help one another out and enjoy every second of the incredible sport we call fly fishing!

ommunity School junior Jack Swanson has an affinity for ice. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because one of his biggest passions is playing ice hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the speed of the game,â&#x20AC;? Swanson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be faster than all the other sports put together. And, of course, there is the hitting, which is a great part of the game. It makes everyone a little scared and a lot more cautious.â&#x20AC;? Swanson first started playing hockey when he was eight years old for the Sun Valley SUNS peewee team. His earliest memory was that â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could barely stand up. I was falling down a lot but I was doing the best I could.â&#x20AC;? Today, he plays with the SUNSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; high school team and their season kicks off every October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We play two games every Friday night in Boise. We all drive down every Friday afternoon and our first game is at 6:30 and then another at 8:30. After that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back on the bus for the trip home.â&#x20AC;? The team also competes in tournaments once or twice a month. At this level, games are comprised of three 16-minute periods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At eight I started playing forward but at eleven the coaches switched me to defense, partly because I had become a much better skater and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty difficult to skate backwards. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so sure at first but as time went on I started having a lot of fun taking the puck away from the opposition and distributing it out.â&#x20AC;? Today, there are 22 players on the team and they practice twice a week for an hour and a half. Although Swanson also plays soccer, hockey is his favorite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because the Community School is small, it gives me a chance to get out there and meet new people. I also really like team sports because you have to learn to trust your teammates to do their share of the work because one guy canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it all. You have to push each other and work together.â&#x20AC;? On Tuesdays and Thursdays Swanson volunteers and works with the 8-10 year olds. This is his second year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an assistant coach. We each have a station and we run the kids through each one and work on different drills. Being with the kids is a lot of fun. They sure have a lot of energy and to see them progress is so rewarding. You know that you are helping these kids with something that will impact their entire lives.â&#x20AC;?

Swanson has lived his whole life in the Valley and started at the Community School in preschool. Today, he has a 3.91 grade point average and has taken honors courses in algebra and English. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really love the school, especially because everyone becomes like family. You really get to know the kids in your own class but we always have new students coming in and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great, too. What I like the most is that the academics are top notch and the school on the whole is very challenging.â&#x20AC;? One thing you can be sure of is that challenges for this student are always welcome and nothing to shy away from. tws Each week, Jonathan Kane will be profiling a local high-school student.

Hang on to Your Pilgrim Hats: Margot Gets Patriotic

T

he Fourth has come and gone but I am still swept away with the feelings of amazement in the founding of our country and where it has led. It seems as I grow more mature (aka older) I become more astonished at the brilliance, perseverance and bravery of our forefathers in spite of looming failures on every horizon. Surely luck and fate played their part but wisdom and foresight were the main ingredients for this recipe of a successful formation of this democratic nation. You may now say, but look where we are now---because certainly we have â&#x20AC;&#x153;come a long way babyâ&#x20AC;? and some of the original founding ideas have been transformed drastically. But say I, a naturalized immigrant, this land of ours is still the best that I see in this present world. For those of you who have not read the books mentioned above, I implore you to please do so and share them with your children. Please pick up the editions that have the pictures. Look at those pictures closely and truly try to visualize yourself face to face with these brave and brilliant men. Try to visualize yourself along side of them here in our young stumbling country during war strifes taking place in the sparse and unpopulated country sides (1775-1783), at the Congressional Congress, in Europe negotiating treaties, on boats (small ones mind you) crossing vast waters,( mail delivery taking forever), maybe even riding along side of General Washington and on the New York shores whenâ&#x20AC;&#x153; British war ships sailing past Manhattan firing into the city, terrorizing the citizens and laughing at the Americans attempts to fire backâ&#x20AC;?. (Sound a bit like dĂŠjĂ  vu?) The revolutionary war did not end till 1783. It seemed to go on forever. If you, as I, have read these books once, read them again. The stories so beautifully told by McCullough will once more open your eyes to past and new vistas. So there you are: two wonderful books to read to re-energize you hopefully about our amazing country and give you new hope and awareness. I finally leave you with a wondrous quote from someone I am sure you have heard of: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perseverance and spirit have done wonders in all agesâ&#x20AC;?. General George Washington P.S. George Washington was elected President on 2/4/1789 by 69 members of congress (13 years after the declaration of independence had been written) and John Adams (runner up) as his vice president. The Senate proposed that Washington be called Your Highness; Washington opted for Mr. President. Give us your feedback at margot6@mindspring.com tws

MASSV Gives Way to Deep Vibrations Hannah Sterling, aka “Redd Foxit,” of Boise, twirls around to the music of Kid Traxion. STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

T

he sign posted at the gate warned against trespassing by alien life forces and New Yorkers. But those who attended the MASSV spectacle over the weekend outside River Run Lodge embraced those with egg-shaped and mushroom-shaped heads, even inviting them onstage to bust a few moves to the electronic vibe. The alien visitors fit right in with young men wearing King Tut headdresses, young women wearing fur mukluks and boas over bikinis and a young man with rubber hands so humongous they would have sent any man due for a prostate exam heading over the cliff with the lemmings. The second annual MASSV (Music & Arts Showcase Sun Valley) primarily took place Friday and Saturday night in the lower River Run parking lot, spawning a tent city for revelers coming from Boise and elsewhere near Serenade Lane.

The attraction? Three thousand youngsters over the course of the event playing on K-town’s propensity to dress in outlandish costumes. Jugglers, back-flip artists, break dancers, poi dancers and other performance artists moseying around the grounds. Graffiti artists creating gothic faces and Disney-like trees with spray paint. Booming bass lines served up by the likes of James Egbert and Mimosa. Performance art by Kazum, Portland’s high-flying acrobat, and dubstep dancer Marquese Scott. And laser lights. The vibrations pulsing from the stage were powerful enough to rearrange every cell in revelers’ bodies. The laser lights crisscrossing above the crowd’s heads created a crossword puzzle with the stars above. Laser lights birthed giant fireflies in the woods beyond. And, in due time, a dancer outlined in green appeared on Bald Mountain, boogeying away even as he grew as big as the state of Rhode Island. Similar spectacles take place

across the country. Stasha Maricich, for instance, says there’s one in San Diego, where she’s studying interior design, nearly every week. But Sun Valley’s is more of a spectacle, she said. People don’t get as up for it in San Diego because it’s more commonplace. “This one is tiny compared to others,” said Luke McNees, of Hailey. “I went to the Electric Daisy Festival at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway two weeks ago and it drew 120,000 people.” In an arena where the show was as much about people in the audience as on the stage, the crowd was so dense in front of the main stage that you really couldn’t move unless others moved, bending you with them. “Are you having a good time?” one youngster asked another. “I’m having a great time!” the other replied. “That’s what it’s all about, man,” the first responded as the two did fist bumps. The main instigator of MASSV is Brent Russell, an emergency room doctor who also

jams tunes under the alias DJ Alien Doc Rock. His idea: to invigorate the youth scene. “Ketchum has the oldest demographic of any ski resort in America. We have to introduce a new generation to this Valley and, if Sun Valley won’t do it, we will,” said backer John Sofro, who didn’t offer up an alias like everyone else. “Sun Valley has been good enough to lend us their property. And Brent and Ketchum Mayor Randy Hall had the vision to make it happen.” While geared toward young people, MASSV attracted plenty of thirtysomethings and older. Even Jennifer Teisinger, executive director of the Sun Valley Summer Symphony, showed up, not afraid to mix up some modern vibes with her classical bent. Maria Dudunakis of Hailey took in the hypnotic textures and ear-shattering futuristic bass vibes and smiled: “It’s a different era.” Editor’s Note There were nine MASSV-related visits to St. Luke’s Wood

Center Summer Concert Lineup Includes Brandi Carlile and Josh Ritter The guesswork is over: Brandi Carlile is being added to this summer’s lineup after the cancellation of the Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings concert due to illness. Brandi Carlile will take the stage at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30 at River Run, and Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band will follow at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 14, with opening act the Milk Carton Kids. Whether she is rocking out with her full band or standing quietly at the edge of the stage singing a cappela, Carlile brings a riveting intensity to her shows. Known for her clear and powerful vocals and her signature mix of rock, folk, and alt-country, Brandi Carlile continues to wow audiences from major festivals to Benaroya Hall in Seattle where she has played with the Seattle Symphony. Tickets for the Carlile show at regular entry time (6:15 p.m.) are $45/ members and $55/nonmmembers. Tickets for kids 12 and under are $20 for both members and nonmembers. This show will have an early entry access at 6 p.m., which means that folks

will have the first chance to grab their favorite place to set up before the crowds arrive. Early entry access tickets are $85/m, $95/nm. Tickets are still on sale for Josh Ritter and members can purchase tickets to both shows and will receive a 10 percent discount for buying both concerts at once. For those who purchased tickets to Sharon Jones, The Center will honor those sales with no adjustment in price. The Carlile and Josh Ritter concerts continue the long tradition of the Sun Valley Center’s picnic-style concerts at River Run. At these shows, picnics with food and beverages are welcome, as are low-backed chairs. Sun Valley Company will have food and drinks available for purchase if you want to keep it simple. Seating is limited—buy early to avoid disappointment. Click on www.sunvalleycenter.org or call 208.726.9491, ext. 110 to purchase tickets. Tickets can also be purchased in person at The Center in Ketchum during regular business hours.

Hailey’s Grand Fashion Fourth STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

T

he streets shook under the vibration of a plethora of fire trucks and police cars sounding their sirens as the 2013 version of Hailey’s Fourth of July Parade was off and running. Spectators had lined the streets with hundreds of chairs of all shapes and sizes by Wednesday evening. And, come Thursday noon, spectators were lined three and four deep. Actress and author Mariel

Hemingway served as the belle of the parade, while miner and rancher Harold Drussel served as its grand marshal. And, of course, there was candy. Pre-parade press releases had said candy would be handed out only at the end for safety reasons. But the candy started flying with the first entry in the parade, and it rained candy all through the parade. And, as always, Hailey’s one and only bucking car capped off the whole event.

“It’s very country, very genuine,” said Rob Clayton, the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s new director who just moved here from Park City. “Park City has a parade but it’s pretty much a bunch of Realtors.” Parade judges had a difficult time choosing the winners this year, said Co-Chair Jane Drussel: “We had so many great entries this year.” The winners: Float category—First went

to Light on the Mountains, second to Music and Me, and third to Valley Maintenance. Decorated Auto and Antique Cars—First went to the Blaine County Historical Museum, second to Christopher & Co., and a tie for third went to the Collins family and daVinci’s Italian restaurant vehicles. Honorable mention went to showstopper and grand finale, “the bucking car.” Equestrian/Wagon group—First went to the

The alien, part of the MASSV festival, stopped for technical difficulties. Kaz Thea, who is overseeing the new 5B bikes that people can check out and ride around town, pedals one in the parade. This little boy had plenty of stops and starts, but he eventually made it through the parade route. Jerry Smith, who brought home several medals from Special Olympics competition in Korea this past winter, had no difficulty finding takers for candy donated by Atkinsons’ Market. Caelin and Finley Darrow were among a plethora of youngsters who wore the stars and stripes. Vamps founder Muffy Ritz shows she’s as proficient on a unicycle as skate skis. Katharine Sheldon and Joney Ottesen rollerblade their way down the streets as part of the Vamps entry. The Vamps is a winter Nordic ski program for women. Some of the entries were just as interesting from the rear end as the front. Hailey’s Climate Challenge got into the act with this forklift, a trash ball, a float featuring Mariel Hemingway, who is narrating a documentary on the Climate Challenge efforts, 5B bikes and more.

Overnight Appetizer BY MARGOT VAN HORN

M

y friend is a twin. She lives here in Sun Valley but her sister lives in Alaska. This is the sister’s recipe. Her sister says that at her parties her guests can’t get enough of this and I can see why. It’s delicious!! And, like potato chips, hard to stop once you start. Even though I don’t favor cream cheese that much, Miracle Whip at all, or processed foods like canned mushroom soup, with this particular recipe, I totally concede. If you think like me, I believe that once you taste this, you will find it delicious, too. Janet’s Crab Mold Appetizer (an appetizer made the night before serving) Ingredients: 1 8-oz. package cream cheese 1 small onion, grated or finely chopped 1/2 C. celery, finely chopped 1/2 C. cream of mushroom soup, undiluted 1 package unflavored gelatin—(you only use 1 dissolved Tbsp. for this recipe) 1/2 C. Miracle Whip 1 1/2 C. crabmeat (fresh is the best; however, the good canned variety, drained, will do) Instructions: Heat soup in a medium-sized pan and add the dissolved gelatin. (Dissolve the gelatin according to package directions.) Stir well. Add the cream cheese and Miracle Whip. Mix until melted. Add rest of ingredients and put in a pretty greased mold. Refrigerate overnight. Before serving, set mold in warm water to help release. Serve on a pretty plate surrounded by thinly sliced baguette bread, good crackers, and celery.

UI-Blaine Extension Tips

Pesticide Use

K

now you have a pest before using a pesticide. Most insects, spiders and mites do not cause damage; some are even beneficial because they attack and kill other pests. Even an insect species or plant disease that is normally considered to be a pest does no damage unless it has exceeded your personal tolerance for damage. Many weeds can be easily removed without using a pesticide; others are very difficult to control. You need to identify the species causing damage before you can begin to consider what control measure to use. If you do not know, ask an expert. Take time to read the label. All pesticide labels have vital information you should know before using the product. No pesticide takes care of all pests; that is why there are so many pesticides. The label lists the specific insects, weeds or plant diseases it is effective against. If the pest or plant you have is not listed on the label, you have the wrong pesticide and you should not use it. Pesticides that give rates in pounds per 100 gallons or pounds per acre are not formulations manufactured for homeowners. When mixing and applying pesticide, remove all children and children’s toys, pets, pet food and dishes, or anyone not involved in the treatment, from the area until the spray has dried or as long as the label directs. Protect your skin and lungs by wearing protective clothing and gloves and a respirator. Do not use pesticide if the wind is blowing. When finished applying pesticide, dispose of the product properly and be sure to wash your clothing, and shower. You can store pesticides. It is illegal to store pesticides in anything except their original container. Keep it in its original container with the label attached. To avoid storing pesticides, buy the smallest amount available to do the job each year.

Sports-Specific Training vs. Training Function pyramid with musculoskeletal function on the bottom and optimal sports performance on the top. Building on a strong functional base—resistance training, cardiovascular conditioning and sports-specific skill development—are layered to reach the peak of sports performance. Sports-specific training follows functional training. All athletes, regardless of their sport, need to be in an aligned posture able to correctly recruit muscles for desired movement. The design and function of the body does not change whether you are a gymnast, swimmer or rock climber. Traditionally, athletes tend to skimp on the musculoskeletal function exercises – flexibility, mobility and stability, muscle activation. Omitting this fundamental work can ingrain improper movement patterns, increase injury risk and compromise posture. It is much more fun to just go out and play a round of golf than do stretches to open up the chest muscles or do small, isolating exercises to improve the posture of the shoulder and upper back. However, working on function and joint position will greatly improve your ability to rotate your hips and torso through the golf swing, creating increased speed on ball contact and longer drives. As a coach, I start my athletes

ports performance is the result of coordinated movement. Pedaling a bicycle, casting a fly rod, swinging a tennis racquet or golf club, and hiking up a mountain all require multiple muscles working together in a specific sequence to create action. If any link in this chain of musculoskeletal function is not ideal, you may experience early fatigue, pain, inefficient technique, loss of power and injury. The repetitive nature of sport can create muscle compensations and imbalances. Consequently, many athletes have movement dysfunctions that develop over time from playing their sport for years. For example, a cyclist’s hip flexors become so short and tight from long hours in the saddle that the pelvis tips too far forward, creating an exaggerated arch in the lower back. The upper back and shoulders round overly forward to keep the spine balanced against gravity. Pain and dysfunction in the upper and lower back develop to the point of not being able to bend forward to reach the handlebars or turn the neck without severe pain. The gluteal muscles, which oppose the hip flexor muscles, and the overly stressed hip flexors themselves stop working. It’s true, it happened to me. The foundation of sports performance is proper musculoskeletal function. Visualize a

Bug BBQ Educates Folks on Weeds

The Sawtooth National Forest (SNF) and Pesticide Action Network of Blaine County (PAN BC) are launching a much-anticipated bio-control weed control project on the Harriman Trail this summer, with the opportunity for the public to attend a “Bug Release Barbeque” to learn about the use of insects to control spotted knapweed and other noxious weeds. The project includes two separate bug releases. The release on July 17 will focus on the flower weevil, Larinus minutus. Later in the season, on August 14, the group will release the root weevil, Cyphocleonus achates. At the event, the Sawtooth National Forest and Blaine County Bug Crew will provide samples of the weeds and bugs for the public to handle. The SNF invasive species program manager and a botanist with the forest will be on hand to answer questions about how the insects do the work of weed control. PAN BC will have a representative to discuss the group’s campaign to protect kids and the entire community from the harmful health effects associated with toxic, chemical pesticides. Blaine County Weed Department will also be available to answer questions on property owners’ legal obligations regarding noxious weeds. The Blaine County Bug Crew will discuss their summer bio-control projects and where insects for bio-control can be collected in the region. Kathryn Goldman, campaign director for Pesticide Action Network of Blaine County, said, “One of the important aspects of this project is that the insects eat the seed heads. You don’t get that benefit with sprays,” says Goldman. The public is welcome to attend the Bug Release Barbeque to learn about the insects, how they are selected and tested, monitoring, costs and other details associated with bio-control. The event will kick off at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, July 17, with refreshments and a barbeque.

TRAIL GETS MAKEOVER, NEW NAME, from page 1

As if on cue, Erik Carrete and Blake Everson joined ranger Kurt Nelson and the ceremony, having just finished fine tuning aspects of the trail with pickaxes and shovels. Eric Rector and Kurt Nelson have biked the trail several times this summer.

The completed $160,000 project has resulted in “a gorgeous trail that goes along the ridgeline,” said Nelson. “It’s a great instance of the community coming together and making something happen.” Parkinson’s disease has robbed Osberg of her voice. Consequently, she had her grandson read a note expressing her gratitude and exhorting everyone to “continue to enjoy hiking in this beautiful country.” But she sounded like one of her guidebooks as she described the trail for a reporter.

“Although I’ve never hiked the trail, I have hiked up to it from various aspects,” she added. “There are eight different ways down off this trail,” she went on. “You can access it from Warm Springs, Adams Gulch, Alden Gulch, the East Baker Creek Road…” Osberg first came to Sun Valley in 1958 and worked for Union Pacific Railroad. She returned in 1979 to work for her brother who had a jewelry store here. Anne Hollingshead, a geology professor who had also moved to Sun Valley in the 1970s, talked

Gloria into going hiking. “That led to a hiking club and that developed into a hiking book,” recalled Osberg. That isn’t to say the two were always spot on. When former ranger Butch Harper asked the two women to mark a trail he’d mapped out from Baker Lake to Norton Lake, they got lost not once, but twice.“ I put it in my book and said it was only for expert hikers who have routefinding knowledge,” said Osberg, who worked for the Ketchum Ranger District at that time. Three members of Osberg’s

“Although I’ve never hiked the trail, I have hiked up to it from various aspects. There are eight different ways down off this trail. You can access it from Warm Springs, Adams Gulch, Alden Gulch…”

hiking group—Ann Christensen, Mary Jane Conger and Eve Taylor—attended the ceremony, reminiscing about adventures with Gloria that included hiking Alaskan glaciers, rafting mosquito-infested Yukon rivers and dropping into Yukon territory by helicopter for a Millennial hike. Osberg continued to raft and camp with her hiking buddies, sleeping on the ground, for years after her diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. In the early days, as many as 40 people would show up for the hikes, so they’d have to split up into smaller groups. Now, anywhere from three to a dozen hikers show up. “We block out Thursdays on our calendar year-round. We hike in the summer and crosscountry ski in the winter,” said Christensen. “There are only a few days we can schedule dentist or other appointments on Thursdays—and those are on

the shoulder seasons.” The hiking group is still going, even though the hikes “aren’t as long,” said Conger. “Or, they take longer,” said Christensen. The group keeps a record of the time it takes them to do each hike—they celebrate if they beat their time from one year to the next. “We had some of the most wonderful hikes to Hyndman Peak and the lakes behind that peak,” said Conger. “Our longest each year is to Alice Lake, which is 12 miles round trip,” added Christensen. Osberg and her husband John moved from Sun Valley to Seattle three years ago. They returned for the ceremony in a Pleasure Way van they’ve dubbed “the magic carpet.” “I’m so honored, I’m speechless,” Osberg confided to a reporter. “I don’t know what to say to everyone but ‘thank you.’ ” tws

The Gloria Osberg Ridgeline Trail offers great views of the Smoky Mountains.

ant to check out the Osberg Ridgeline Trail? Drive 15 miles north from Ketchum on Highway 75 and take a left onto Baker Creek Road. Drive another seven miles along the dirt road to the parking lot for the Baker Lake trailhead. The trail starts from the left side of the parking lot as you’re driving in. The trail climbs from the trailhead to a junction. Turn right and you head toward Castle Creek and the Warm Springs Road area. Turn left and you end up on the Osberg Ridgeline Trail. The trail features gentle dips and great views of the Smoky Mountains, White Clouds, Boulder Mountains, Pioneer Mountains and even the Sawtooth Mountains. It’s about 11.75 miles up and across the 9,000-foot ridgeline to the East Fork Baker Creek Road and about six miles down that road back to the Baker Creek Road. There are dispersed campsites that hikers and bikers can park at there.

Hikers could go 9.75 miles along the trail to the Alden Gulch trail and turn left down it to get back to the Baker Creek Road. The three-mile Alden Gulch trail is a bit rough for bicyclists. It’s about 19 to 20 miles from the trailhead at the Baker Lake parking lot to the Adams Gulch parking lot. Much of the trail is dirt—as a smooth as a baby’s bottom. A few areas are covered with rock. Bicyclist Steve Deffe said he carried his bike more than he would have liked when he rode the trail 25 years ago. “I did it once and said, ‘I’m never going back there again,’ ” he recalled. “It went straight up and down ridges, and it got deeper and deeper and the ruts wider and wider. “The trail has been improved 100 percent,” he added. “It’s got enough uphill to challenge bikers, and the views in all directions are unbelievable. I foresee this becoming a destination trail—one that people will still be coming to 20 years from now.” tws

STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

I

n the 1950s, Joe McCollum bought a handful of lots on Ketchum’s Broadway Avenue above the Big Wood River. He sold one to a fellow from Filer who built a cabin on his lot and gave another to a plumber in exchange for building a well. He gave one strip to his brother Ben and kept another for what became referred to as “the family fishing shack” and a trailer he never ended up putting on the property. “There were no other houses out there at that time,” recalled Sally McCollum, who married into the family. “My father-inlaw paid $6,500 for all that and my mother-in-law freaked out. Of course, that was just before Bill Janss bought Sun Valley and started building condos— when he did, the property values started climbing.” Eventually, Sally’s son Andrew McCollum bought the place and reconstituted the family compound, building an unusual home out of metal, wood and boulders brought up from the family’s Canyon Springs Golf Course in Twin Falls. He named it Lupercal after the cave where Romuls and Remus—the twin brothers believed to have founded Rome—were suckled by a she-wolf. The standout feature is a watery grotto built in part with faux rock designed to match the canyon rock that one can access the outside from inside the house. “I call it Disneyland on the Big Wood,” said Sally McCollum. This “Disneyland on the Big Wood” will be among the attractions of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden’s 18th Annual Garden Tour on Friday. Not only is the garden tour being held on Friday instead of Saturday this year, but it’s being held from 3 to 7 p.m. so that ticket holders can enjoy a cocktail party featuring wine, light appetizers and music from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the final garden on the tour. “Every time I went on one of the tours, I thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to hang out in a garden and be able to sit down and enjoy it?’ So, we’re doing it,” said garden tour chair Kelley Weston. This year’s tour, a benefit for the Sawtooth Botanical Garden south of Ketchum, features six

These exotic looking flowers are among those that can be found on this Friday’s garden tour, which is a fundraiser for the Sawtooth Botanical Garden.

“I put things in and push the edge. Some don’t make it but I don’t lose much.” –KATHLEEN BRITT gardens. Each will have a musician, plein air artist and plant specialist in it. The gardens offer a wide variety of looks. A couple of the gardens on the tour have distinctive water features. A couple others are along the river. One shows how to incorporate edible plants, while another is a more formal garden that uses dividers that resemble pieces of art. David and Lyn Anderson’s garden on Northwood Way features a natural garden accented with artfully placed rocks and other features by landscape architect Rob King. “We’re trying to get it more stressed so it will look more natural,” said David Anderson. “It’s a totally natural garden. We mow it once in the fall and clean it up in the spring. It uses half to a third of the water that we would use on a more conventional lawn.” The garden of Jim and Kathleen Britt, which overlooks the Big Wood River, was on the tour a few years ago. But guests may not recognize it as Kathleen has added more ground and thinned out some trees. She’s training apple trees over the Bocce court and she’s cut slices out of tree trunks to provide rustic steppingstones. She’s used other tree trunks to put birdhouses on. “Ummm! These irises smell like grape jelly,” she said, taking a whiff out of one as she strolls through the beautiful lawn. “Our woodpile created from the trees I’ve removed is so beautiful, I’m hesitant to burn it. Basically, I’ve taken away the ordinary trees and replaced them with more exotic ones.” Britt says she dabbles in both Zone 4 and 5: “I put things in and push the edge. Some don’t make it but I don’t lose much.”

Kathleen Britt has cleverly used tree stumps as pedestals for her birdhouses.

If you Go… The garden tour will be held from 3 to 7 p.m. Friday and will include a cocktail party from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at the final garden on the tour. Tickets are $35 for Sawtooth Botanical Garden members and $45 for non-members. Non-members can get a tour ticket and garden membership for $50. Everyone needs to begin the tour at the Anderson residence at 600 Northwood Way, whether they purchased their ticket online or whether they’re purchasing it at the time of the event. Tour maps will be dispensed at this point. Information: 208-726-9358 or info@sbgarden.org

The grotto at Andrew McCollum’s house is one of the points of interest on Friday’s garden tour.

Magic in the Garden Get ready for a three-ring circus as the Sawtooth Botanical Garden rolls out Magic in the Garden from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday at the garden a few miles south of Ketchum at Highway 75 and Gimlet Road. The event, formerly known as Gimlets in the Garden, will include a magic act by entertainer Elias Caress, music by a ukulele band named Pau Hana, midway games, fire jugglers, a silent auction, catering by Rasberrys, beer, wine and signature cocktails by mixologist Ryan Sullivan. Tickets are $75 per person, available by calling 208-7269358. tws RIGHT: Jim and Kathleen Britt’s gazebo is thronged by a plethora of colorful flowers.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, It's been a few years since my wife and I have traveled. That's because we've been busy raising four kids through high school and college. The last one just left for a job across country. With four kids all around the U.S., my wife and I want to travel to visit them and see the country. We figured the best way to do it is in a motorhome. That way we can have the comforts of home, like a bed and kitchen, at an economical price. Best of all, we don't have to impose on our children when we get there. I think they'll appreciate that. The question is, how do we narrow down the search? I'm smart enough to buy a good used vehicle, but everything I read from RV’ers say that no matter which RV we purchase, the first one is never the right one! Is there any way you guys can help us buy the right one the first time?

• • •

Cash: After raising four kids,

you guys deserve a vacation! And what better way to celebrate than traveling the country? Carry: Even with high gas prices, driving a recreational vehi-

cle, or RV, is more economical than other means if you want to cover a lot of territory. And, like you said, it does allow you to travel with many of the comforts of home. Cash: Picking the "right" RV is simply a matter of deciding which amenities are important to your travel experience. The reason RV owners say, "the first one is never the right one," is that they find their desires change as they use the vehicle. Carry: While some travelers like to keep it simple with a small bed and kitchen, others want a large refrigerator or big screen television. Cash: The fortunate part of

buying a used RV is that if you do decide to upgrade at a later date, you can do so without losing a lot of money. Since the largest amount of depreciation occurs with the first owner, you can always buy and resell a used RV without much loss. Carry: The best bet for finding the right vehicle is to look at as many RVs as possible, both new and used. This will allow you to find out the features that are available, and which ones may be important to your trip. Cash: However, be careful of buying a RV that's too nice. When you visit your kids, they may just opt to move in with you!

From small pop-up campers to luxurious bus type vehicles, today's RV'ers travel in style. With options like plasma TVs or fullworking kitchens and bathrooms, some vehicles are more luxurious than their owner's homes. It's no wonder that nearly eight million households now own at least one RV. That's a 15% increase over the past several years, putting at least one RV in every twelve households. Estimates expect the number of owners to increase another half million.

Get Lost?

It used to be that you were assured of two things on a trip: Your husband would not stop to ask for directions and there's no way that map folds back into place! Fortunately, technology has found a solution to both of those problems. Consumer GPS navigational systems have taken the guesswork out of finding our destinations. The GPS unit works by communicating with some of the 24 GPS satellites in orbit around the earth. The software on your GPS uses the signal to give you a visual depiction of where you're located. •

Reader Humor Toot Your Own Horn

When my wife and I started RV shopping, everyone had advice for us. However, it was one man we met that had ideas I'll always remember. As we toured the inside of his RV, he told us to always lock the kitchen cabinets before traveling. "Otherwise, things will fly," he laughed. "And keep a roll of duct tape handy. It's used for everything." Then from the closet he pulled out a trumpet and held it in his hands. "What is that for?" I asked. "Try playing it at every campsite," he grinned. "And no one will park on either side of you!" (Thanks to Jonathan L.)
