Korby Lenker Concert to Raise Money for Local Scholarships

“When I was 4, my uncle set a new saddle on the arm of the couch…it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen.”



s the son of a Twin Falls mortician, nothing is off limits for Korby Lenker. That’s why when he read a book about snake handling, nothing would do but for him to drive until he found one of the mountain churches mentioned in “Salvation on Sand Mountain.” Inspired, he returned to the Pacific Northwest and formed a bluegrass band called The Barbed Wire Cutters. And he wrote a song about the snake-handling preacher he met in the Appalachian Mountains. Lenker’s penchant for the unusual has served him well. Not only was he selected as one of 10 finalists out of 500 in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest, but he’s opened for the likes of Willie Nelson, Nickel Creek, Keith Urban and Susan Tedeschi. “It should be no surprise that the son of a mortician would make music with an appreciation for the absurd,” he told a reporter for “American Songwriter Magazine.” “I remember lots of times as a little kid waiting in the embalming room for my dad to finish filling someone with formaldehyde so we could go to the park and eat KFC.” Lenker, who now lives in Nashville, will bring his eclectic musical morsels to Velocio in Ketchum at 7 p.m. Monday. Admission is $20 with a portion of the proceeds going to a new performing arts scholarship for Wood River High School students. Velocio will also provide food and drink specials with a portion of those proceeds going toward the scholarship. “Recently, the Blaine County School District was recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants as one of 307 districts across the country with an outstanding commitment to music education. Yet, we don’t have a scholarship earmarked for performing arts students,” said KECH Radio News Director Dayle Ohlau. “I’m hoping if we get enough people attending this concert we can give away two $1,000 Korby Lenker/ Rich Broadcasting Performing Arts Scholarships to graduating seniors who plan to pursue a degree in music or the performing arts.” Ohlau said the inspiration for the Korby Lenker concert came from an Elkhorn concert she and her son saw a couple years ago featuring Josh Ritter. “We had the best time and a friend of mine whom I used to do TV with in Michigan said, ‘If you loved Josh Ritter, you’ll love Korby Lenker. And it’s

ou need only follow your nose to Jack Sept’s saddlemaking workshop, which sits above the garage of his home south of Bellevue. The smell of tanned leather is pervasive as you climb past bridles and harnesses, past coyote traps, past his father’s handmade vintage cowboy boots into a workshop that looks like a page out of “American Cowboy Magazine.” Dressed in his Cheyenne Frontier Days denim shirt and handmade cowboy boots, Sept fits right in amidst hundreds of collectible steel stamps, his 1875 vintage leather creaser and saddletrees that serve as patterns for the elaborate ornamental saddles that he endows with swirling bouquets of stamped and carved flowers. “I’m a compulsive collector. I don’t need all these tools but I love them,” says Sept. “I got my first four stamps when I was 12 and I still have them. I still smile when I think who might have had them before me and when I wonder what they were making.” Sept will be among the nationally renowned artisans and craftsmen featured at Silver Creek Outfitters’ annual Boots and Buckles show Friday through Sunday in Ketchum. “I like fine craftsmanship and Jack epitomizes the craftsman cowboy,” said Terry Ring, Silver Creek’s owner. “He has a passion for his work. And if he promises something, he’s going to deliver. He’s a fine saddlemaker.” Sept worked for 30 years for the Bureau of Land Management. But he’s had an eye for fine leatherwork since he was a youngster. “My dad and uncles were all cowboys and they all ordered handmade boots,

custom hats and handmade saddles so I grew up hearing them talk about the value of handmade boots and saddles and custom hats. When I was 4, my uncle set a new saddle on the arm of the couch and I sat on the couch and stared at it—it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen,” Sept recalls.

You always knew where to find Jack

Sept grew up on a cattle ranch 90 miles from Sheridan, Wyo., which boasted four major saddlemakers in a town of less than 10,000 people. When Sept’s parents went to town, they’d let him out and he’d spend all day in the saddle shops watching the saddlemakers work. When he was 12, he took a saddlemaking lesson through his 4-H club from Don King, a legendary saddlemaker credited with creating the Sheridan-style saddle now found in museums. And he was roped in. “I’ve done every kind of art there is, including watercolor, oil, sculpture and pen and ink drawings, but I keep coming back to leather,” says Sept, who studied art at the University of Montana, courtesy of a team roping scholarship. “It’s the medium I love most. The process of making a

saddle is amazingly complex—there are so many steps, so many pieces, so many things to remember. “It’s so challenging to take a piece of leather and shape it and mold it.” Sept crafts leather into all kinds of things, from checkbooks, belts, chaps, light switch covers, mail holders and even 12-foot-long panels for a wet bar. He’s currently working on a scabbard for a bow hunter. “I can figure out how to do anything,” says Sept. “Often, I spend so much time figuring out how to design something, I figure I end up working for minimum wage when all’s said and done.” Sept calls saddles the ultimate leather project because it takes everything you know to put them together. “To do quality work, you have to understand the past, and I have a deep appreciation of Western history,” he says. “It used to be you could tell where a cowboy was from by the style of his saddle. You’d say, ‘That’s a Visalia from California or that’s a Hamley saddle from Pendleton, Ore. Differences aren’t as notable now because of all the interaction at cowboy poetry gatherings and other events.”

Banjo Player Plucks Early Idaho Songs “I do it chronologically so people will [visualize Idaho] from 1862 to 1920.” –Gary Eller



ary Eller knew “a gazillion” songs about early Appalachia growing up as he did in West Virginia. But when he moved to Idaho in 2004, he couldn’t find a single song sung about Idaho before the advent of radio in 1923. Eller, a retired nuclear chemist from Los Alamos, N.M., went on a quest to find songs about Idaho mining, logging and ranching. With the help of a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council, he combed every museum in Idaho, uncovering 200 songs with such diverse titles as “The Bear Lake Monster,” “The Fort Lemhi Camp Song,” “The Route of the Great Big Baked Potato,” “The Idaho Two-Step March,” “The Teton Ditchdigger Song,” “The Grave of Lizzie King,” “The Ward Party Massacre” and “The Rainbow Stallion of the Owyhees.”

Eller, a banjo player with a contemporary bluegrass band based near Nampa’s Pickles Butte, will discuss and perform some of them in a free presentation at 6 p.m. Thursday at Ketchum’s Community Library. One of the songs, which he got out of the Wood River Times in 1893, is a sarcastic ode to “the beautiful snow of Idaho” by Wood River Valley miners for whom snow was simply a nuisance. It was set to a classic Irish drinking song. Few Idaho songs were preserved by academics from the Library of Congress and Smithsonian because Idaho was so hard to get to, Eller said. They could crawl all over Appalachia because they could get there by train in one day. It took a week to get to Idaho and then they’d have to find a horse or wagon to get to the miners and loggers. Finding old songs has gotten easier as libraries put new material online, he added. Eller has compiled some of the


Mannie’s Jamboree Celebrates 50 Years Fifty years ago, as then Gov. Smylie prepared to celebrate Idaho’s Territorial Centennial in Boise, he called upon a fiddle player from Fairfield, Mannie Shaw, to organize the fiddlers of Idaho for that event. This year, we celebrate 150 years since Idaho was made a territory. We also celebrate 50 years since Mannie Shaw organized the Fiddlers of Idaho. This year, Mannie’s Jamboree will be held in recognition of these two events at the City Park in Fairfield on Saturday, Aug. 17. Join the Fiddlers of Idaho as they

celebrate and rediscover the art of fiddling and where fiddle playing is today. The fiddlers are putting out a call for 150 fiddlers and folk music lovers from around Idaho (out-of-state fiddlers are also welcome) to gather at Mannie’s Jamboree. All fiddling styles are welcome as well as guitar, mandolin, banjo and other stringed instruments. There will be free tenting and RV parking.

songs in a 50-page interpretive booklet and audio CD called “Ballads of the Owyhee Country.” Others are preserved in “The Way We Worked in Idaho,” a 56-page booklet with CD and “Early Songs of Southern Idaho and the Emigrant Trails,” a 75-page book and accompanying CD. “The Idaho Song Bag,” a CD of more than two dozen historically-based songs about mining, murder and labor disputes, features folk musician Pete Seeger singing a song he wrote in the

Quaking Aspen: a Wood The Habitat’s Dark Side River Valley Native “One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds.” —Aldo Leopold

uaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) are a beloved tree throughout the Wood River Valley. They are scattered throughout the mountains, foothills, local parks, and neighborhoods. During the summer months, their leaves shiver and shake in the slightest breeze, and in the fall, they paint the hillsides yellow and gold with their changing autumn colors; but there is a lot you probably didn’t know about this beautiful species of tree. Individual trees within aspen groves are all interconnected through their root systems, making each grove a single organism. This sprouting habit of the aspen makes it the bane of many a homeowner. Amaze your friends by pointing out the borders of these “clone patches” in the fall, when separate groves of aspens turn subtly different shades of gold, orange or even red. In the spring, patches may leaf out earlier or later than their neighboring patches. The heaviest organism on the planet is an aspen grove (named Pando) that weighs 6000 tons! Another interesting detail about aspen trees is that the bark contains chlorophyll (the same stuff that makes the leaves green and produces food for plants through photosynthesis). To protect this

Idaho’s Listed Noxious Weeds


daho has 64 listed noxious weeds which the law requires property owners control. Blaine County sees the majority of these weeds in knapweed, rush skeletonweed, Dalmatian toadflax and thistles. But how does a weed become noxious? And why some weeds and not others? A noxious weed is a weed that is not native to our area, is harmful to humans, animals, and the environment, and has proven to be invasive. An invasive species includes those species purposefully or inadvertently brought here and that exhibit invasive characteristics. This excludes introduced species that have great value. Rather, invasive species escape their original or intended ecological niche to habitats where they spread uncontrollably. When making the determination of a weed being noxious or not, the Idaho Invasive Species Council, chaired by the director of the Idaho Department of Agriculture, looks to see if the plant is an invasive species and if it

fits the definition of a noxious weed. If so, they study the plant, look for control methods, and add it to the list of noxious weeds. The plant is then required by law to be managed. Blaine County works with the Idaho Invasive Species Council and the Department of Agriculture through our Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA), one of 30 across the state. CWMAs work with local land managers to come together in the fight against noxious weeds. Here in Blaine County we work with the Forest Service, BLM, Idaho Transportation Department, local cities, National Park Service, Wood River Land Trust, Idaho Conservation League, Blaine County Recreation District, Pesticide Action Network and the University of Idaho Extension Office. How can you help in the fight against invasive species? Report potential invasive species to the Idaho Invasive Species Council at 877-336-8676. Think you may have noxious weeds? Call the Blaine County Weed Department at 788-5516. tws This column is brought to you by Blaine County Weed Management.

Angling Around Sun Valley With Mike McKenna



ike McKenna relishes catching a fish on the end of his fly. But he also relishes catching a big fish story, as well. And they don’t come any bigger than the one about how fly fishing guide Ritchie Thurston caught his wife when she landed a 23-inch brown trout on Silver Creek while tagging along with her father, a longtime client of Thurston’s. That tale—and others—is what sets McKenna’s new fishing guide, “Angling Around Sun Valley,” apart. “Anyone can tell you, ‘Go here.’ I wanted a book that was about more than tying knots. I wanted to share stories told by some of those for whom fishing is a way of life,” McKenna said. “I’ve enlisted the help of 18 guides—all from Silver Creek Outfitters— and asked them why they live here. These guys fish all over the world but they call this place home.” “Angling Around Sun Valley,” available for $19.95 at Silver Creek Outfitters and other venues, is billed as a year-round guide to fly fishing within 60 miles of Sun Valley. The book, which offers a splash-proof cover, glossy pages and colored photographs, is organized according to the four

seasons. It offers tips, fishing flows, river miles, access points, boat ramps, wading suggestions, regulations, fairly detailed maps, information about what to carry in your fly box and even a section on how to get kids started fishing. It covers the Big Wood and Little Wood rivers, Silver Creek, the Big Lost River and its tributaries and still waters, such as Magic Reservoir. “Anyone who fly fishes within a 60 mile-radius of Sun Valley should have it,” said Terry Ring, who owns Silver Creek Outfitters. “It not only tells you where to fish but how to fish and why fish.” McKenna, who edits Sun Valley Magazine, came by his own love of fly fishing 20 years ago when a fishing enthusiast said he’d teach him to fly fish on the Deschutes River in Oregon if he would write a story about it. “One of the things that’s awesome about fly fishing is that it’s a sport where you’re always learning. As soon as you think you’ve got it, you realize there are 10 other things you don’t know,” McKenna said. Sun Valley is a fly fishing paradise with places to fish any time of the year, he added. And there’s every kind of fishing—from that available by a two-minute walk to the Big Wood River to fishing high alpine lakes. But it isn’t

as well known for its fishing as Argentina or even eastern Idaho. “That’s one of the reasons I wanted to shine some light on this area,” McKenna said. “It shares more than the basics. It shares a passion for the place.” McKenna is already at work on a second book focusing on fly fishing in the Stanley area. “People ask me what it is about fly fishing that causes people to become addicted to it. I thought one man expressed it well when he said, ‘I go to the river to be renewed,’ ” he said. “Hopefully, I’ve offered some personal stories that will inspire readers to get out there and just do it.”

Mike McKenna says he has started amassing big fish stories with his own two sons, Jack and Sam.

Kagan Retrospective to Highlight Gallery Walk BY KAREN BOSSICK

M Robin Reiners moved to Sun Valley from Seattle 12 years ago looking for a healthier lifestyle and a community that embraces art. “We certainly found it,” she said. We created a lifestyle that we loved and have been given so many gifts in return—our experience was truly priceless.”



allery DeNovo, which has been introducing up-andcoming international artists to Sun Valley locals and visitors for 11 years, will close its doors at the end of this summer. Gallery owner Robin Reiners will mark the closing with an exhibition titled “Transitions: Gallery DeNovo Retrospective and Final Exhibition,” which will open Friday. It will have a closing reception Aug. 30. The exhibition in the upstairs and main floor galleries will include works from more than 50 sculptors, painters, photographers and printmakers from 13 countries—all of whom have been represented in the gallery over the years. The opening reception will be from 5 to 8 p.m. during Friday’s Gallery Walk. “I hate to leave,” said Reiners, who has exhibited the work of such artists as Agusti Puig, Philip Tsiaras and Yehouda Chaki. “Sun Valley is such a very special place it makes it difficult

to leave, even thought I know I’m transitioning into something great. This is such an amazing community with people who are knowledgeable about art and well-educated with the friendliness of a small town.” The move was precipitated by Reiners’ husband Michael Carpenter who recently started his own video game company based in San Francisco called Ruby Seven Studios. “As anyone knows, a startup business takes 98.9 percent of your time and 100 percent of your energy, so Robin and I found ourselves apart too much during peak gallery season,” said Carpenter. “We did the long commute for the last three years, but it was Robin who said, ‘If you start one in San Francisco, I’ll find a way to be there at least 70 percent of the time.’ ” Reiners said she will continue to exhibit some works at venues like Zenergy in Ketchum through her new DeNovo Art Consulting, which will be based in San Francisco. tws

ore than two years after Rob Kagan suddenly passed away, Gail Severn Gallery is presenting a Memorial Retrospective of the Ketchum sculptor’s work. The memorial, which includes a plethora of Kagan’s sculptural work inside and outside the gallery at 400 1st Ave. N., will be coupled with the publication of a new coffee table book, “Rod Kagan—Totems 7 Guardians,” which will be available at the gallery and book stores around the state. Kagan grew up in New Jersey where he worked as a butcher with his brothers in the family business and satisfied his artistic side building hot rods. He moved to Ketchum in 1973 when he was 33 and began his career as a sculptor. He designed and built an octagon-shaped home workshop and studio north of Ketchum, surrounding it with a sculpture garden filled with monumental steel columns and bronze totems and chairs, along with a series of standing, reclining and seated ladies. He told a reporter before his death that he got much of his material from wheels, pulleys and other discarded metal he found at Idaho mine sites. He did not make drawings or maquettes for casting by a foundry, as most sculptural artists do. Rather, he conceived each work in his mind and then worked directly with the metal, sketching his designs on the metal, then cutting and welding pieces together. His sculptures are represented in private collections, art museums and public spaces, including the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C., and the Boise Art Museum. He won a fellowship grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1984 and was the recipient of the Idaho Governor’s Award for Excellence in the Arts in 1990. He has had work installed in 38 major cities around the United States. His sculptural works are


defined by their unique style, said Gail Severn: “He clearly understood classical forms and yet was deeply influenced by his surroundings: by the mining history in Idaho, by Native American history and by the environment itself, especially the mountains. These elements, combined with his technical mastery and refinement of the bronze and steel medium, make for powerful and

Gallery Walk to Feature Plein Air Demonstrations BY KAREN BOSSICK


atch a painting from start to finish when nine plein-air painters take up their paint brushes in the great outdoors this week. The artists will be stationed at the iconic Sun Valley Barn on Sun Valley Road from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. today. They will then fan out around the valley on Thursday before returning to Kneeland Gallery on Friday where Ovanes Berberian will offer a still-life painting demonstration. The finished works will be on view at Kneeland Gallery, 271 1st Ave. N., from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday during Friday’s Gallery Walk. Other participating artists are Steven Lee Adams, John Horejs, Shanna Kunz, Lori McNee, Robert Moore, Linda Tippetts, Jack Braman and Bart Walker. The public is invited to stroll among Ketchum’s galleries from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday as the galleries offer refreshments. Some of the artists will be available to talk about their work. Some of the highlights: Gilman Contemporary, 661 Sun Valley Road, will feature Kollabs Outside/In, a collaboration of mixed-media works on panel between Anke Schofield and Luis Garcia-Nerey. The provocative works bring wildlife indoors, exploring what it would be like if wildlife entered our homes, our spaces, our environment.

Alexander Maksik says he was thrilled to be able to launch the book tour for his new book with Iconoclast Books. “I owe a lot to that bookstore—I even used to read my poetry there. And I owe a lot to this town, my teachers. It’s so important to come back here.”

Maksik Introduces World To Jacqueline STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


couple years ago Alexander Maksik fell head over heels for Jacqueline, a young Liberian woman. He woke up in the middle of the night thinking about her. He woke up in the middle of the night worrying about her. Never mind that she was a character in his latest novel, “A Marker to Measure Drift.” “I think I want to do that with all my books from now on,” said Maksik, whose book was released on Tuesday. The young Liberian woman that the Community School graduate came up with grew up well-educated, part of a privileged class. But in his book she journeys from the horrors of Charles Taylor’s Liberia to abject poverty and self-exile on a Greek island where she must grapple with a haunted past and find a way back into human society. She veers between starvation and satiety, between the brutality of her past and the uncertainty of her present in the aftermath of experiences so unspeakable that she prefers homeless numbness to the psychological confrontation she knows is inevitable. “It’s a novel about memory, how we live with what we know, and how we go forward after loss. It touches on what happened to her, her country and her family. It touches on how people respond to trauma,” said Maksik. Maksik launched his book tour with Iconoclast Books in Ketchum Monday night before heading out to such well-known bookstores as Powell’s Books in Portland, The Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle and The Tattered Cover in Denver. His tour will take him to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Brooklyn, N.Y., Madrid, Toronto, Paris and Antwerp in the Netherlands before it’s over. “His first book was huge—for him and for us. This second one is by Random House and they’re pushing it hard—I think it’s going to be a New York Times bestseller,” said Sarah Hedrick of Iconoclast Books. The genesis for “A Market to Measure Drift” had its seeds in Maksik’s fascination with the immigrants he saw around him while living as an American in Paris, then Italy. “It always struck me how brave they must be to leave their homes behind. I started to imagine what it must be like,” said Maksik, who now lives in New York. “I tried a bunch of subjects—they all failed. Then I tried a male voice. When I came up with Jacqueline, I found the voice of a woman in dialogue with her mother and something

clicked. She was so present in my mind. So alive.” Maksik, 40, had read an article about Liberia but he didn’t dig too deeply. “I’m wary of doing too much research—this is not history, it’s not a historical novel. It’s about character.” That said, Maksik points out that Liberia was one of two American colonies. It was founded by freed American slaves who were shipped there in the belief that they would have greater freedom and equality. But a military coup overthrew the Americo-Liberian leadership in 1980 and a quarter million people died in two successive civil wars. Maksik doesn’t outline his books from start to finish but, rather, lets the characters take him where they will. “If I know the character, I know what they can do.” Maksik is already a third of the way into his next book, which he said is very different from his first two. His publisher has given him two-and-a-half years to finish it. He’s just relieved not to be a one-hit wonder. “I always wanted to be a writer. My parents—former Community School headmaster Jon Maksik and Leslie Maksik—are great readers and I was always surrounded by books. And I had two great teachers—Tom Johnson and Bob Brock—who were very encouraging about my ability to write, even when maybe I had no ability to write. “I was really more of an athlete in my younger days, but I knew I would never be a professional skier or soccer player. Tom Johnson introduced me to Hemingway’s ‘Moveable Feast.’ I used to go to Hemingway’s grave and think about writing. Living where Hemingway had lived had to have had some influence on a very impressionable young man like myself.” tws

arm sunny days and cool breezy nights mark the end of July – the midpoint of our summer of 2013. Thus far, it’s been one of the most pleasant seasons we’ve had in a long while. Everyone seems to be outside enjoying activities; music is in the air with the abundance of outdoor concerts and the nights have made it possible to have marvelous dreams. Mainly when I dream, I am the protagonist—the hero, if you will—who goes on thrilling adventures and rules the day. Last night, I took the form of a black Lab, one of the most popular and well-known breeds of the mountains of southcentral Idaho. I’ve never known a black Lab that I didn’t like. In the dream I didn’t belong to anyone in particular. I belonged to the Wood River Valley. I have had many names in the past and will come calling to just about anything. Today, I’m going around as “Molly.” I have many

families and friends in the county and will stop by and visit each one on my many travels around the area to see what’s up. I am always greeted warmly because, frankly, I know how to act. If someone needs cheering up, I nuzzle their face and let them know that everything is going to be all right. If they’re happy and boisterous, I join right in the action they’re having or suggest a good game of “Ball.” I’m an excellent ball player and I can catch the ball on the fly over my shoulder, return it directly to the thrower and place it gently in his or her hand. I usually get a lot of compliments for this and a pretty good treat later on. I prefer fresh meat but am not above any treat with bacon. Actually, I could probably eat pretty much all the time. That is why I run. My life is eating, empathizing, running and sleeping. What’s the matter with that? I love people and they love me. If I were a human, I’d be elected mayor. I’m so glad that I’m a lab and not a politician. I generally sleep over

at one of my stops (a lot depends on the menu and a warm blanket). I always leave in the morning. There are no tearful goodbyes; it’s just “See you later, Molly”… or whatever moniker I’m going as at the time. They know I’ll return soon. Why can’t people emulate my lifestyle? Don’t they want to be free and live on the kindness of others as I do? I guess they can’t because of the rules of society. They must work so they can afford a place to stay and have enough to eat and take care of their families and drive a vehicle and have insurance and pay their debts and then pay something called taxes to the society collectors. All of a sudden, I awoke and I wasn’t a black Lab any longer. A feeling of great sadness overcame me. So, I called in sick and spent the day belly down in the Big Wood River. Anybody got any bacon? Nice talking to you. tws

Symphony Menu: Balinese Music, Dancing

BY KAREN BOSSICK Teddy Abrams, who joined Alasdair Neale this year as co-conductor of the Edgar M. Bronfman “In Focus” series, has been a hit with the audience for his enthusiastic, almost bouncy, way of conducting and describing various compositions. And those who remember the chamber series as four musicians sitting on stage were also enthused about the creativity displayed during the opening Sunday night. Musicians fanned out through the Pavilion for one piece. And up to 21 musicians took their seat on stage for other pieces. The innovation should continue in the final two “In Focus” concerts as symphony musicians prepare for the debut of the full orchestra on Sunday.


Th e W e e k l y S u n •

Here are the highlights: Tonight—Musicians will bring out the gongs, xylophones, metallophones, drums, cymbals, plucked strings and bamboo flutes for Colin McPhee’s “Balinese Ceremonial Music.” The agenda also includes Hector Berlioz’s “Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath” from “symphonie fantastique,” in which the artist sees himself at a witches’ Sabbath in the midst of a ghastly crowd of spirits, sorcerers and monsters assembled for his funeral. Also performed will be Eastern European composer Osvaldo Golijov’s “Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind,” which features Shofar calls and Balkan trills. Friday—A narrator and dancers will join musicians as they perform Igor Stravinsky’s “The Soldier’s Tale.”

J u ly 3 1 , 2 0 1 3

Based on a Russian folk tale, it depicts a Faustian struggle between the devil and a soldier. Sunday—Violinist Midori will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Concerto in D Major for Violin.” The orchestra will also perform Berlioz’s “Roman Carnival Overture.” Monday—Cellist Amos Yang will perform Sir Edward Elgar’s “Concerto in E Minor for Cello.” The orchestra will also perform Maurice Ravel’s “La Valse,” which pays homage to the Viennese waltz, offering snippets of seemingly familiar waltz tunes. The In Focus concerts tonight and Friday begin at 6 p.m. at the Sun Valley Pavilion. Sunday and Monday’s concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. All are free. tws

Chicks Bring the Heat BY JONATHAN KANE

Jon rated this movie


he new movie The Heat has become the surprise hit of the lackluster summer season. In financial terms, it has been helped at the bottom line by the fact that it didn’t cost hundreds of millions to make. But it is really helped by the fact that even though it isn’t a great work of art, it is entertaining and, after all isn’t that what we really want from a movie? Most of that is due to the comedic chemistry between the two leads – Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. I’m a real big fan of Bullock and she has consistently shown a lot of savvy in picking projects. I’m not so big a fan of McCarthy, probably because she often plays the same character and largely because it’s hard to vanquish the memory of her last picture – Identity Thief – from my conscience. But Paul Feig, who directed her in Bridesmaids and this movie, seems to have the touch. The script by Katie Dippold is nothing special, but Feig has over-

come its deficiencies and crafted an entertaining two hours at the pictures. So entertaining, in fact, that Fox has already ordered a sequel. The structure is the typical cop/buddy movie but, in this case, the mismatched pair are women. Their common thread is that both are social misfits and pretty much friendless. Bullock plays a ‘by the book’ F.B.I. agent who is sent to work on a local case in Boston to see if she can work with others and earn a desired promotion. She teams up with the loudmouthed, sloppy-but-extremely-street-savvy cop played by McCarthy. Their job is to nail the generic drug lord. The plot doesn’t really matter. It’s their comedic pairing that matters, and in this the movie succeeds in spades. tws

Grateful Dead Revived BY KAREN BOSSICK


alling all Deadheads: The air waves in the Wood River Valley are about to turn psychedelic. A handful of Grateful Dead fans will honor Jerry Garcia and his American rock band, which became an American institution, with the Deadshow tonight and Thursday. The first show starts at 6 p.m. tonight at The Wicked Spud in Hailey. Part of the restaurant’s Wicked Wednesdays concert series, it will feature a vending area of clothing, T-shirt and jewelry sellers, similar to the Grateful Dead vibe that featured a sea of people selling clothing, jewelry, food, drinks, toys and artwork at each show. The second show, which will feature a somewhat different music set, will start at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Mahoney’s Bar and Grill in Bellevue. By happy coincidence, the gig falls on the birthday of Jerry Garcia, who would have been 71 this year. Both concerts are free. The band features Johnny “Johnny V” Valenzuela, Chip Booth, Sean Jackson, Lee Chubb and Peter Heekin. Band members have more than a passing interest in the Dead, which was known for its unique and eclectic style that fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, jazz and what they called “space rock.”

The first time Sean Jackson saw the Grateful Dead live was at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967—two years after the band formed in Palo Alto, Calif. Booth was in a Grateful Dead tribute band for 11 years while living in Atlanta, Ga. “He knows this stuff inside out,” said Valenzuela, whose past projects included a celebration of Pink Floyd’s music and last summer’s reunion of his old band, Stonewheat. “Lee Chubb saw these phenomenal musicians on the East Coast, and there was a different vibe to the East Coast than the West Coast. The Dead had two drummers at the same time for most of their career, and

we’re trying to cover as much as possible with one drummer. That’s asking a lot, but he’s doing a great job of it.” Deadheads can rest assured the group will play some popular Grateful Dead tunes like “Truckin’” and “St. Stephen,” a song that references the last days and St. Stephen, the first martyr of the New Testament. The band abruptly stopped playing the song near the end of the 1970s. But Valenzuela hopes audiences will be surprised by a few of the songs, as well. “We’ve put ourselves in the mindset of the audience and asked: “If I were going, what would I want to hear?” Valenzuela said. “Most of the songs we’ll be playing are crowd favorites.” Valenzuela himself has 135 ticket stubs to Dead shows in venues ranging from Las Vegas to Arizona and California. That’s small by Deadhead standards, he acknowledges. “I like the fact that they incorporated a jazz concept of improvisation. They always had a lot of room for improvisation— they never played the same song the same way twice. They never played the same show twice,” he said. “Their music is a lot more complex and challenging than you’d think,” he added. “There’s a lot more to it than meets the ear. But they pulled it together so seamlessly you didn’t necessarily recognize it.” tws

Fishing R epoRt The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR JUly 31 FRom picabo angleR


he day time temperatures are starting to cool down, but the fishing remains HOT! Silver Creek is putting on a show every morning with Trico Spinner Falls all wrapped up in the unpredictable. What this means is load for bear! During the Trico spinner fall, we are seeing P.M.D. hatches and also spinner falls. We are also seeing Baetis emergence and spinner falls during Trico time, so be ready for all of it. In the afternoon, the Callibaetis action is picking up, but the mainstays are the Damsel Flies and the Hopper action is really getting good.

While on the topic of Hoppers, please, please, use 3X or heavier when fishing Silver Creek with Hoppers. The fish are not the least big leader shy when they decide to eat a Hopper. The benefit is the fish get landed quicker and healthier instead of swimming off with a giant fly stuck in their mouth, and you get to actually land fish big enough to eat giant foam Hoppers. The Big Wood and the Upper Big Lost Rivers continue to fish well with small attractors flies, Terrestrials, and small nymphs under Chernobyl Ants and other foam flies. Don’t ask why, but a Big Black Foam fly fished in the shallow water will bring up some nice sized fish! Cicadas or Crickets may be the answer, but as long as they eat it, it doesn’t really matter why! The Caddis at night is a great way to go and Rusty Spinners fished to rising fish in the evening is a sure bet! The South Fork of the Boise is starting to see the first real occurrences of Pink Alberts. Fish the shallow riffles when this action is on, and fish the shallowest spots for some of the biggest fish! If it will cover your boot top, it will cover a fish and they will use this shallow water big time when the Alberts are on fire. This is also a great time of year to escape the heat by getting into some high mountain lakes. There may be no more beautiful sight then watching the evening rise on any of our alpine stillwater spots. Ants and Beetles and a few Attractor flies are all one needs. It is also a great time of year to get on our tiny mountain streams with a small rod and some Caddis flies. These little rivers have a very short season, and a little trip up a little river is like being a little kid all over again!

aylor Figge, a recent graduate of the Community School, loves doing community service. “I like to give back,” Figge says with a smile. “It’s important to do things that are not for money or for grades.” To that end she was a member of the school’s community service club for four years and put in at least 100 hours a year volunteering. “The most satisfying is that the last two years I have volunteered for the Ketchum Art Commission. Their mission is to support public art like the installations on Fourth Street and in general to bump up the aesthetics of town.” While there, Figge worked under Claudia McCain and helped write a manual for future commissioners. “There are 20 city-owned properties around town that are suitable sites for artwork. I photographed the sites and created a reference book on their locations. We also looked at future potential sites. Some of these are the wrapped electrical boxes that you have seen around town. There are five in town and I wrote the profiles of the artists who have created them and ways to find artists in the future to contribute.” As to why she enjoyed the experience so much, Figge said, “It was a great opportunity that came my way. I just wanted to be involved in the professional world and the responsibility that came with it. They also offered me the great freedom to put the book together and then present it to the city council.” Other service activities have included stage managing for every Community School show for the past four years. Figge has also loved working the Boulder Mountain Tour every winter. For her senior project she travelled to New York City where she volunteered for Doctors Without Borders. “My grandfather was a missionary in the Congo so it was something that I really wanted to do and I ended up learning a lot about the organization.” After entering the Community School in the sixth grade, after attending Hemingway, Figge ended up with a 3.8 GPA and was president of the student body. “In the sixth grade there was a big influx of new people, so 15 students came in with me but it was still nerve wracking. We start out with the fall campout for the whole school and then the fall trip. We went to the City of Rocks late in September for five days of hiking and climbing, but it snowed the whole time and pretty much blew everything away. It was a great bonding experience. My favorite trip was fall of sophomore year when we hiked on the Oregon coast. It was something that you didn’t appreciate until it was over because we were cold and soaking wet the whole time but it sure was a lot of fun. You’d be in a

rainforest and then come out on this spectacular coast.” As to her total experience at the school, Figge said, “I absolutely loved the Community School but there were times I wanted to leave because it seemed too small. But I’m glad I stayed because the teachers were wonderful and I was able to get so many things that I wouldn’t have gotten at a larger school.” So it’s off to the University of Denver where nothing but bright skies awaits. tws

Saddle UP with saddlemaker Jack sept, from page 1 The morning sunlight streaming through the window, which looks out onto the Picabo Hills, highlights Sept’s face as he stamps pieces of wet leather sitting on a granite slab. The tooling compresses the fibers in the leather, helping the leather to last longer. He uses several saddletrees on which to mold the leather so they’ll fit horse and rider, and he chooses from a variety of riggings to make them fit. “Even though you want these to be beautiful, they have to be functional,” he says. “If they don’t fit the horse and rider, they’re just decoration. Saddles are one of those things where one size doesn’t fit all. You even have different saddles based on whether you’re barrel racing or trail riding, just as you have different shoes for hiking and golf.”

The quality control guys

Sept spends about 200 hours on each saddle, which command between $6,500 and $12,000. He stretches the rawhide over a saddletree and then builds the saddle up by layers. He hand stitches the leather; he even rubs the leather with canvas saddle soap to get a nice sleek edge. “At my stage I don’t want to make any more plain saddles. I want to do something to showcase my artistic abilities,” he says. “It’s not unusual for people to pass down these saddles from one generation to the next. They become heirlooms.” When he has a question about his work, he looks up at pictures of Don King and saddlemaker Dale Harwood of Shelley, Idaho, hanging amidst his stamping tools and asks, “What would they do?” “That usually means I redo it. They’re my quality control. At 64 I’m not sure I’m on the top of the heap. But that’s what I strive for.” “He’s very much a perfectionist,” acknowledges his wife, Anne Jeffery. “If he doesn’t like something, he will take it apart and redo it.” Demand for fine saddlemaking and leathercraft tapered off during the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. But it’s resurging, in part because it’s easy to find information on the Internet and because trade shows are offering workshops for wannabe leathersmiths. Sept himself has taught local youngsters to tool leather and he is currently working with a stroke victim who counts leathercrafting among his therapies. “Good-quality leatherwork has had a huge resurgence due in part to new methods of horsemanship. I saw horse trainer Ray Hunt at a clinic and Boise and he told one man, ‘Take that cheap saddle and throw it away and go see a good saddlemaker and get a saddle that fits your horse,’ ” Sept recalls. “A lot of my stuff goes to collectors, but I love to see ranch cowboys order a saddle from me because I know they’re going to use it and it’s going to work for them,” he adds. “I think of these saddles as my children. When I send them out in the world, I hope they do well. I say, ‘Use it but take care of it.’ ” tws

Snow Salutations





here are 120 days until the chairlifts crank up on Baldy. But the Sun Valley Wellness Institute and lululemon athletica are teaming up to ensure we have an abundance of snow this year. They’re encouraging powder hounds to turn out for a Sun Valley Snow Salutations Yoga event from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday on the lawn of the Sun Valley Pavilion. Kate Whitcomb, who manages lululemon athletica in Ketchum, dreamed up the event, choosing to use it as a vehicle to support the work of the Sun Valley Wellness Institute, which produces the annual Sun Valley Wellness Festival and other wellness events throughout the year. “We’ll even have snowcones, as it’s our intention to concentrate our energy on snow,” said Lili Hansen, assistant manager of lululemon athletica. “It should be a fun event, what with awesome yoga in the great big outdoors.”

Four local yoga teachers will teach the event. Cathie Caccia will open it with a meditation. Jamie Guzik will follow that up with some challenging core work. Beth Stuart will offer some inversions. And Lauri Bunting will close the event with some chanting. Jeff Brendel will offer samples of the new trail mix he concocted that allows sponsored athletes a medium to raise money for the charity of their choice.

Medium-sized sliced cucumbers that can be topped with the salmon, etc. 3 to 4 dozen small bagels (2inch size), partially split, and/or combine the bagels with thinly sliced crusty French bread. 3 lemons thinly wedged, mostly for décor but some like it squeezed on their salmon. Thinly sliced red onions for toppings. Capers (in the bottle and drained for easy picnic serving but you can put them in a small bowl if you would rather.)

Directions: Beat the cream cheese with the sour cream, lemon juice, shallot and dill till nicely blended; put it in a serving bowl. Set the salmon on a large platter or board. Surround the boarded salmon with the lemon wedges, dill leaf sprigs and sliced red onion; a bowl with the cream cheese dip; a larger bowl filled with endive and romaine inner leaves; a bowl with the medium-thick sliced cucumbers and the drained bottle of capers which has a little fork in it for easy serving (hint: capers usual-

Pre-fill/top some of the endive/ romaine lettuce leaves and sliced cucumbers with some of the salmon topped with the cream cheese dip and other goodies; set these on a separate dish or, if your board is large enough, on that—to show guests how really yummy this is and for quick, fun appetizer grabbing. Let the guests put on the capers because not everyone likes them. PS—Napkins, toothpicks and small plates are a nice addition for this spread. Frankly, I love a bit of champagne with this spread.

He began playing the cowbell in his uncle’s band when he was 7 “My mother, a singer in my uncle’s band, saw me playing and knew right away that I could become a musician so she gave me the opportunity to try,” he said. “In Africa, everything is music.

Shelter Trots Out Greyhounds, Pit Bulls at Benefit Dinner

he only greyhounds in evidence were made of vodka and grapefruit juice. But Athena, a border collie mix with a sprightly hairdo, and Artie, a year-old pit bull with a pleasing round face the size of a basketball, plied the crowd in hopes that someone would give them a good home. “When you adopt these animals, you’re not just making a difference in the lives of dogs. You’re making a difference in the lives of families, as well,” said Fred Northrop. The cause was the Dog Days of Summer benefit dinner and auction held Friday night outside Trail Creek Cabin Its mission: to raise money for the no-kill Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley, which han-

dled more than 1,500 animals this past year. “We don’t get funding from municipalities,” Executive Director Jo-Anne Dixon told the 300 supporters gathered on the lawn. Auction items included an Arctic polar bear adventure to the Hudson Bay in Manitoba and a safari to watch the Botswana migration of leopard, cheetah and lion. Daisy, a Labrador retriever-border collie mix who was adopted following last year’s dinner, made an appearance showing the Frisbee catching skills her new owner, 17-year-old Hank Nicolais, taught her. The dog will soon learn additional new skills as it is honed into a therapy dog. Hank presented his mother and father with a list of reasons they should adopt Daisy. Among

them: “When I leave for college it’ll be good for you to have another dog,” said Jane Nicolais. “How can you tell the difference between a dog and a wife? If you leave your dog alone (in a tent) for two weeks, he’ll be happy to see you,” she said, attesting to a dog’s unconditional love no matter what the circumstances. DeSiree’ Fawn, who made “The Phantom Wolves of Sun Valley,” showed a short video she’d made of animals that had been rescued from the shelter. Among them: Lucy the Wonder Dog, Arlo the Amazing Threelegged Cat, Bill the Life-Changing Guinea Pig and Callie the Best Friend Ever, according to a 4-year-old who dressed the golden retriever to the hilt for its moment in the camera lights. “You think the animals at the shelter are going to be sad, but

Red-Hot Benefit

Blincoe Architecture



alk about a red-hot fundraiser! That would be Boulder Mountain Clayworks’ second annual Tuscany on Tenth Street held Thursday night outside the studio in Ketchum. Patrons sipped Limoncellos as Mary Ann Chubb and Nesbit Hatch pulled up the sides of a kiln sitting in the parking lot to reveal a large clay pot that had been heated to 1,650 degrees. Working nimbly, the two lifted the glowing red-fire pot out with giant tongs and set it in a garbage can. They then showered the pot with newspaper clippings and sawdust, causing a flame to roar forth from the can before putting the lid on. Closing the can starves the air of oxygen after the combustible materials catch fire, pulling oxygen from the glazes on the clay. And that results in some interesting colors, explained Chubb. There were award-winning wines to drink and wood-fired pizza pulled out of the Ketchum Grill’s mobile oven by Bertrand Theulot, an Italian exchange student visiting Scott and Anne Mason this summer. But the hands-on aspects of Boulder Mountain Clayworks’ benefit went beyond handling food and drink. Patrons like Nan Frates got an opportunity to make and decorate their own piece of pottery. And everyone got to watch as Susan Ward, who founded the pottery studio a decade ago, created a large bowl on the pottery wheel, which she auctioned off on the spot. “One of the things about throwing: If you start well, you end well,” Ward said. Items up for grabs included two garden totem poles crafted by such studio potters as Jerry Hutchins, Maureen Jenner, Linda Vinagre, Susan Winget, Pam Doucette, Cesare Capra, Pam Sable, Martha Hollenhorst, Susan Ward and Mary Ann Chubb. Among those who turned out for the event was an entire family—Cliff Frates and Noli Burge and their daughters Lucinda and Edith Frates. Noli Burge started working with clay six years ago before the family moved from California to Bellevue. And now

the entire family does pottery at Boulder Mountain Clayworks. “My husband started doing it and fell in love with it right away. Then the kids got into it,” Burge recalled. “Both my husband and I are artists—painters. Clay work is different from making a painting. And the kids love to make stuff. It feels good to be able to handle a finished product.” “I like working with a potter’s wheel. I like watching things grow,” said Kitt Doucette, another local who frequents the studio when he’s not running around the world shooting adventure photography. Eventually, it was time to take the lid off the garbage can and see how the pot that was up for grabs turned out. You never know what you’re going to get. And that’s one of the attractions of Raku, said Chubb: “It’s always a surprise. You never know what the pot is going to look like.” Oftentimes, the pot is cracked in the process, she added. “You wonder why you pay big money for clay pieces. Often things go right right up until the very end—and then you lose them at the last minute,” one clay potter observed.

Jewish Scholar to Look Those Dreaded Gravity Injuries… at Rising Anti-Semitism to your health



lavicle fractures Gravity sure seems to be strong and thriving in the Wood River Valley. Fractures of the upper extremity and of the clavicle (collarbone) have increased since mountain biking season opened. Fractures of the clavicle are quite common accounting for 5 percent of all fractures and nearly 50 percent of the fractures involving the shoulder girdle. The clavicle is an “S-shaped” bone that typically has fractures in the middle one-third. For decades, clavicle fractures have been treated conservatively and have been allowed to heal on their own with a sling-type, figure-of-eight harness. More recently, operative treatment may provide for improved outcomes. The general trend toward surgical fixation, or Open Reduction & Internal Fixation (ORIF) of clavicle fractures, is continuing. Fractures, like people, each has a specific personality, and must be treated with the utmost respect. Fracture care should be individualized to the injury and individual. Ankle Sprains & Fractures A fractured ankle can range from a simple break in one bone, which may not stop you from walking, to several fractures, which may require that you not put weight on your injured limb for up to three months. Sprains may range from mild to severe,

as well. Basically, the more bones that are broken (or ligaments that are torn) the more unstable the ankle. During the past 30-40 years there has been an increase in the number and severity of ankle injuries due to aging “baby boomers.” Common causes include: • Twisting, rotating or “rolling” on a fixed foot. • Tripping, falling, stepping in a hole or being decked by an overly friendly dog. • Impact during a bicycle, rollerblading or car accident (among others). Symptoms may include: • Immediate and severe or sharp “burning” pain. • Swelling — immediate or delayed. • Bruising (black and blue). • Inability to place any weight on the injured limb. • Deformity – i.e., where you look down and it doesn’t look like a normal foot/ankle. Seeking medical attention and a proper orthopedic evaluation is critical after an ankle injury as the injury may require anything from simple RICE (Rest Ice Compress Elevation) to a complex surgical intervention. Rehabilitation is required to prevent future injury and one must “relearn” position sense, or proprioception, which comes with practice/effort. Doing exercises regularly is key to an



optimal outcome. Strengthening exercises follow obtaining full range of motion. Folks don’t realize that it may take several months to get strong enough to walk without a limp and return to full activities. Exercises only make a difference if you actually do them. It is very important to avoid weight-bearing until your physician says you can.

Local Youth Vies for Commercial Spot Hello, my name is Chase Hutchinson. I am going to be a senior at Wood River High School. I am a member of IDFY (Idaho Drug Free Youth) and have spent a lot of time at the high school helping the youth to see that there is a choice to live a life without abusing substances. I recently entered a contest to help make the new Above the Influence commercial. Above the Influence (ATI) is a nationwide campaign encouraging kids to be above the influence and not succumb to pressure when it comes to drugs/alcohol. I submitted my idea for their commercial and now I need your help. The idea is chosen by how many votes it can get. I would be so grateful if everyone could vote to help me spread the message of how our youth can choose to live a healthy, substance-free lifestyle. You can vote once daily, and it would be so awesome if you could help me out with this. The winner gets to go to New York and help make the commercial with a professional director. This is something I am very passionate about and this would allow me to take that passion to a na-

Green Dot provides training and the tools to make it easier for bystanders to intervene when they witness such acts and influence a positive outcome. “Green Dot is unique because it recognizes that there is a potential cost to taking action, whether physical, emotional or social,” stated The Advocates’ community educator, Travis Jones. “The program is really powerful, in part because it gives people some simple tools to make a difference and keep any costs to a minimum.” Green Dot implementation is underway with student participation starting this fall at Silver Creek and Wood River high schools, The Community School and The Sage School.

Ann Christensen examines the Monarch butterfly that Eric Parris has found.

25 Years of Ants and Plants STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


nn Christensen steps out in an eddy of the Big Wood River, ignoring the bone-chilling cold, and begins turning over stones. “Look. I found a Mayfly under the rock,” she exclaims. Nine youngsters come running, gathering around the grey-haired woman as the water splashes over their Crocs and cowboy boots. “Now I want you to use your eyes and see if you can find some stoneflies or water nymphs,” Christensen exhorts the kids as she hands out bowls for scooping water. “Sometimes you have to stare at the water before you see what’s there.” Christensen is in her mid-70s. But the Ketchum woman, who stands just a shade above 5 feet, approaches the world around her with the wide-eyed reverence and curiosity of the children she leads across logs, through creeks and up rock piles, grabbing snakes, fish and butterflies as she goes. Christensen celebrated her 25th year of teaching Ants and Plants classes for the College of Southern Idaho this year. Many of her young charges have returned as her assistants, chasing after frogs and scouring plants for caterpillars. Others have gone on to study environmental-related studies in college. “It’s been the fastest twenty-five years of my whole life,” she says. “Some years it’s been so much fun I’ve told CSI I was going to pay to do this.” Christensen has been working on behalf of critters in Idaho ever since she was moving boxes into her family’s cabin in the Stanley Basin many years ago and noticed salmon stranded in the irrigation ditches. Panicked, she scooped up the salmon in her moving boxes and carried them back to Valley Creek. She keeps a menagerie of deer mice skeletons and other critters in her freezer, pulling them out for the youngsters to examine. When a 2-foot snake poops on her, she reacts with concern for the snake. “Wasn’t that a mean thing to do to a snake? To scare it like that?” “We have not seen a spider today so I’m counting on you guys to find me a spider. I love spiders because they eat insects,” she adds. Hailey resident Katie Corkery says her 9-year-old daughter Madelaine has been attending Christensen’s weekly Science Hour at The Community Library for years. “To get out in nature with

Ann is so special,” Corkery says. “She’s like the Pied Piper. She leads the kids down the nature trail and challenges them to use their eyes and ears to see what’s going on all around them. I love how she captivates them.” Christensen may have a little arthritis creeping into her joints. But she doesn’t let that slow her down as she demonstrates how a rabbit hops. She points out horsetails which, she notes, the dinosaurs used to eat. She explains how Idaho salmon use their sense of smell—“they smell their own river”—to return to their place of origin after making their way to the ocean. She digs out a deer leg to show how deer walk on their toenails to help them run quicker. “Humans and bears don’t need to do that,” she adds, “because they have other ways of protecting themselves.” “How do you know so much?” asks one dark-eyed girl. “Well, honey, I’m old and I’ve been studying a long time,” Christensen replies.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, A few months ago when I bought my condo, my Dad's advice was invaluable. He saved me a lot of time, energy and money. Now that the process is over, it's time for me to find a car to replace my ailing sedan. Once again, my Dad is there to help me shop the classified ads and pick the right one. However, there is one piece of advice that doesn't make sense to me. He says that when I go to look at a car, I should bring a large amount of money, like $600 to $800, to leave as a deposit. The cars are priced at about $6000 to $8000. I guess that's only about 10%, but with a new condo and mortgage payment, that seems like a lot of money to me. Can you guys tell me if that's too much to leave as a deposit or is my Dad's advice right on track again?

• • • Carry: It's nice to have someone you trust who can offer assistance when you need it. However, it's important that the advice makes sense to you. Cash: There's no doubt your dad has your best interest in mind. In fact, if he has a strong knowledge of cars, he may be a good

person to bring along with you. It's always advisable to have a second set of eyes when shopping for a used car. While you get to talk with the owner and inquire how he used the car, your dad could be looking over the vehicle in more detail. Carry: However, like you suspected, his deposit amounts seem awfully high. A deposit is usually given to a seller to show your intent to purchase and hold the car until you return with payment. Some sellers will simply take your word as intent if you plan on returning quickly. Others may ask you to leave a deposit amount. Cash: In any case, it's best to

leave as little as possible. Sometimes $20 to $100 is enough to show good faith on the deal until you can return with the remaining payment. That way, if anything ever happens and your deposit is not returned, your loss is minimal. Carry: Regardless of the deposit amount, be sure to document any transaction. Write out a receipt that shows how much you deposited and when you plan on returning for the car. Cash: And after your purchase, be sure to give your Dad a ride in your new vehicle. You never know when you may need his help again.

Figuring out which car to buy is never an easy task. Some people read reviews and factor in gas mileage while others just looks to the stars, the Hollywood stars that is. Celebrities such as Britney Spears or Paris Hilton are reported to drive expensive cars, like the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren ($450,000) or a Bentley Continental GT ($170,000). Others are more practical. Both Julia Roberts and Leonardo DiCaprio have been seen driving the Toyota Prius hybrid. Rapper, 50 Cent, stayed American with the Dodge Charger. Who knows, some Hollywood celebrity may be driving your car.

Drive with Pride

Does it ever seem like everyone has a new car but you? You may be surprised to learn that most people actually purchase used cars, including nearly 40% of all millionaires. Every car buying year follows the same trend. Automobile dealerships sell over 2 million more used cars than new ones each year. If you factor in private party sales as well, the majority of people are driving a used vehicle. •

Reader Humor Race Car Driver

My three year old son hangs out with my friends and I while we talk for hours about NASCAR, Formula One and drag racing. I didn't realize how much his little brain was absorbing and trying to make sense of what we were talking about until one day my friend asked him, "Johnny, what do you want to be when you grow up?" Johnny replied, "I'm going to drive for FASTCAR!" My friend tried to hold back a laugh as he corrected my son's mistake, "Well Johnny, it is really difficult to drive for NASCAR. You better have a back up plan." Bless his little soul, without missing a beat he said, "No problem. If I can't drive for NASCAR," picking up the correction, "I'll do some brag racing."

510 thank you notes Profuse thanks to concerts organizer/local artist Will Caldwell ( for booking that really terrific All Night Diner band that played to a VERY large and VERY appreciative audience in the Ketchum Town Square last week -- and also to lead Diner singer, Heidi Hogan, for allowing that 13-year-old girl, Madeline Austin, to sing two duets with her onstage (ANOTHER verrry talented female singer whom the Valley is blessed to have among us)!! :D

518 raves The new yellow ribbons along Main Street in Hailey look great! Anyone who loves the sci-fi drama, “Gattaca,” definitely needs to see “The Host” (by the very same writer-director). Based on a Stephenie Meyer novel, it’s a gorgeously-filmed, verrry powerful, poignant and moving metaphor about the inherent dangers of conformity -- a film that’d be on my Top 15 Best list in any given year. Saiorse Ronan and William Hurt have never been better!!
