Davies’ Plate Full of History See John Davies’ License Plate Collection At The Bellevue Museum


10-Year-Old Pens Novel BY KAREN BOSSICK


rica Weiler is just 10 years old. But she will preside over her first book signing from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday at Chapter One Bookstore in Ketchum when she signs copies of “Two Worlds.” The 86-page historical novel revolves around a lonely girl with a privileged background whose wealthy life is turned upside down amidst the Great Fire of London in 1666. The daughter of Lord and Lady Jefferson runs away from the fire into a world of poverty and criminals, soldiers and wild boars and other adventures. “She was determined to write the novel,” said Erica’s grandmother, Eileen Weiler Judell, who spends summers in Sun Valley to escape the oppressive humidity of New York City. “Every time I would call, her mother would say, ‘You can’t talk to Erica. She’s writing a book.’ ” Weiler lives in London where her father Andrew Weiler works in the London office of a New York law firm. She attends the Thomas School with her eight-year-old brother, participates in athletics and entered a painting in the Chelsea Art Show. She also is a well-traveled girl, spending five to six weeks in Sweden every summer where her mother, also a lawyer, grew up. She has been on the Sinai Peninsula when a hotel was attacked and in Thailand when tsunami warnings were issued, so she has had her share of adventures, which may have contributed to her tale. A regular visitor to Sun Valley, Erica was here five years ago when the Castle Rock Fire ignited. That may have led her to set her novel during the Great Fire of London, her grandmother noted. “I’ve always enjoyed writing stories,” Erica Weiler said. “I told Mom when I was five, after a world book day at school, that I wanted to be an ‘authostrator,’ since I wanted both to write books and illustrate them myself. I actually drew some pictures for the ‘Two Worlds’ book but didn’t end up adding them.”’ Judell said she showed the book to a cousin, who happens to be CEO of Bloomsbury, the company that published the “Harry Potter” series. But he said he can’t publish a book unless it comes through an agent. Unwilling to wait, the family elected to self-publish the book. Helen Morgus, a children’s librarian at The Community Library in Ketchum, asked Erica to read her book at the library. But the 10-yearold was just bashful enough to turn her down. “I can imagine this book will be a template for future works,” Morgus told her grandmother. “She has the plot down cold and her character development will come with time. What tws a treasure!”



canning through John Davies’ license plate collection is like looking through picture postcards of Idaho history. There are early porcelain plates baked onto iron that were so fragile that few have survived. There are stickers issued in place of license plates during World War II when the country was saving tin and metal for the war effort. A 1928 plate displays the first outline of a potato and a 1948 plate features a spud loaded with butter and sour cream that looks good enough to eat. Davies’ collection features early Blaine County plates that featured 7A and A7 before the now-familiar 5B moniker. And it includes all the specialty plates issued for colleges, the armed forces and favorite causes such as the Basques and flying—the latest plate to be issued by the state. Davies is exhibiting 174 of his plates this summer at the Bellevue Museum. He has another hundred at home. “I have every one of Idaho’s plates. It cost me an arm and leg to update it, what with five branches of the military and reserves, three or four National Guard plates and all the other plates,” he said. “My favorites are the three porcelain plates.”

Davies, a retiree who was born in Hailey and still lives there today, is carrying on a family tradition by maintaining the collection. His grandfather started the collection, nailing his plates to the barn door. John’s father, John W. Davies, took those and added to them, hanging the plates inside his insurance agency. Davies recalls how Hailey kids scoured the dump in Lions Park when his father promised them a $25 bounty to find the plates he didn’t have in his collection. License plates came onto the scene in the United States about the time mass production of automobiles began. New York was the first state to begin requiring plates in 1901 but motorists had to make their own on cardboard, leather, plastic and other materials of their choosing. Massachusetts and West Virginia were the first to begin issuing plates in 1903. West Virginia’s was 5-by-3 inches—smaller than the 5.25inch-by-6.25-inch plate Idaho eventually began issuing in 1913. Idaho, Mississippi and Texas charged license plate fees based on the horsepower of the vehicle the plates would hang from.

Fielding Aspiring Olympians STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


Alexa Turzian and Lucy LeGarrec, both members of the Nordic Gold Team, sport some of the 6 at Sochi T-shirts and caps available for sale.

ighth-grader Megan Johnston squealed with delight as the chair holding Kelly Sinnott dropped, spilling Johnston’s soccer coach into the dunk tank, innertubes and all. One small dunk for Johnston. One giant dunk for Sun Valley kids wanting to go to Sochi, Russia, two years from now. Johnston was among a few hundred people who turned out Thursday night for the second annual Six at Sochi bash held at Ketchum Town Square. The goal was to raise money for elite Gold Team athletes the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation has identified as candidates for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. “The Summer Olympics ended five days ago and the U.S. had quite a performance—the best in history,” said Ski Education Foundation Director Don Wiseman. “We have got the potential to send quite a few of our kids to the Winter Olympics.” Wiseman said Sun Valley ski coaches determined a few years ago that Sun Valley has the talent to put at least six kids on U.S. ski, freestyle, snowboard and Nordic teams. “That goal is being reached

every day by athletes who train to represent this community and this country at the Sochi Olympics,” he added. Problem is, the United States does not offer government funds to its Olympic athletes, as do other countries, Wiseman said. “What we’re doing tonight is raising funds to send our athletes to Sochi. These athletes are putting in 600 to 800 hours a year just training. Then they have to get to their event, which involves time in travel. A fulltime job is 2,000 hours, so this is a full-time job they’re doing to represent this community, this country,” he said. Ten of the athletes ski coaches have identified as potential candidates attended Thursday’s celebration. The list of athletes includes Simi Hamilton, Tai Barrymore, Tanner Farrow, Alexa Turzian, Chelsea Holmes, Lucy LeGarrec, Mali Noyes, Mikey Sinnott, Matthew Gelso, Reid Pletcher and Patrick Johnson. Alexa Turzian said the justended Summer Olympics had her jazzed. Especially inspiring: The story of American marathoner Meb Keflezighi, who moved up from 19th place with six miles to go to finish fourth. “It’s motivating to see someone

work so hard and not give up,” Turzian said. “The marathon runners are like Nordic skiers—they don’t get the spotlight that sports like football get. It’s good to see that this community is noticing all our hard work and getting behind us.” Joining the Olympic hopefuls were several aspiring Paralympians, including blind skier Mark Bathum, who skied behind Sun Valley guide Slater Storey for a silver medal weighing nearly a pound in the 2010 Paralympics in Vancouver. Ski coach Marc Mast told the crowd that all the U.S. Nordic athletes who competed in the 2010 Paralympics had either been recruited by, trained with or coached in his Wood River Ability Program (WRAP). The current crop of hopefuls includes Omar Bermejo, who recently moved to Sun Valley to train. It will cost him at least $20,950 for a year’s worth of training and perhaps as much as $30,000 by the time you figure all the travel expenses, Mast said. Fortunately, Bermejo—a Marine who lost an arm—is receiving some funding from the Veterans Administration, Semper Fi, the U.S. Paralympic organization and WRAP, Mast tws added.

Megan Johnston relished dunking her coach, Kelly Sinnott, as part of a fundraiser for athletes who hope to go to the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. “Kelly dishes it out but she can take it. She’s all about team building,” said Megan’s mother, Lori Johnston.

Olga Bakhirev sold shots of Russian vodka Thursday night during the Six at Sochi bash.

he idea of legacy was paramount as Tom Brokaw addressed a sell-out audience of about 1,600 people at the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference Saturday evening. He praised the legacy of reporters who’d come before him, of his mother who “had a great ear for a quote,” and of the men and women he has called “the greatest generation.” Then the former NBC news anchor challenged his generation—what he called “the luckiest generation” —to remember how America’s always been at its best when it’s had big ideas. Those big ideas included the G.I. Bill, the Civil Rights Movement and John F. Kennedy launching America on the path toward the moon. And it included President George Bush’s acceptance of a unified Germany, which launched that country on the path to becoming the most economically stable country in Europe. “Richard Nixon had a lot of bad small ideas, but he had a good big idea when he opened up things with China,” he added. Brokaw, dressed in tan clogs, khakis and a white fly-fishing shirt, spoke with an easy repartee. He described how he had toasted his wife Meredith on their 40th anniversary by saying, “When Meredith walks into the room, she takes my breath away.” He repeated that phrase as he celebrated their 50th anniversary on Friday night but added a few more words: “When Meredith walks into the room, she takes my breath way—but now I fear it’s the first stage of emphysema.” Brokaw paid tribute to colleagues who recently passed away, including journalist Karl Fleming, Nora Ephron and Andy Rooney. It was watching Huntley and Brinkley announce the presidential returns in 1960 that inspired him to become a TV reporter, he said. “The Civil Rights Movement would not have been as successful as it was had it not been for TV,” he added. “No one understood that better than Martin Luther King.” Although he had always wanted to write, it was a tragedy on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River that forced his hand. A couple of rafts flipped in high water in June toward the end of the 108-mile trip, killing a close friend. One of the river guides disappeared and was never found. Brokaw and the rest of the rafters huddled in shock on the

banks, waiting for a helicopter to rescue them. And when he returned to Los Angeles, the Los Angeles Times asked him to write about it since the trip had included a number of high-profile people from the Los Angeles area. That launched a parallel chapter in his life, writing op-eds for the Los Angeles and New York Times and articles for magazines. Books didn’t come, however, until he went to Normandy to cover the anniversary of the 1944 Invasion of Normandy and began interviewing men who had never before talked about the war. As the men began to describe how their leaders had been shot through the heads as they landed on beaches, Brokaw said he became a different man. “I told Katy Couric, ‘I think this is the greatest generation society has ever produced,’ ” he recalled. Brokaw said Andy Rooney further helped inspire his book, “The Greatest Generation,” as he watched the former “Stars and Stripes” reporter lead his grandkids on a tour of Normandy Beach, his pace getting faster and faster “as if he was trying to get ahead of his emotions.” Brokaw said when he suggested to Rooney that he thought the men who stormed the beaches constituted part of “the greatest generation,” Rooney argued, “I don’t think we’re the greatest generation.” “Then I’ll put an asterisk by your name—everyone but Andy Rooney,” Brokaw recalled telling him. The response to the book was astonishing, Brokaw said. One woman even said she never would have reconciled with her

Staff Writer:

Brokaw related how his father called him after “Time” magazine reported his salary at NBC. “Is it true how much money they say you’re making?” his father asked him. “Because, as long as your mother and I have known you, you’ve always come up a little short. We need to figure out how much to set aside at the end of the year for you.” father if it hadn’t been for the book. “I was just the doorman. I opened the door and said, ‘This way, please,’ ” he said. “I tell these stories because that’s who we are. It’s a story of America—not from the top down but people who came from the ground up. And that’s the continuing story of America. We’re at our best from the ground up,” he added. Now 72, Brokaw said he wrote his latest book, “The Time of Our Lives,” as he began to think about what the legacy of his generation would be. “Even with the current economic downturn, who would have thought we could have what we have now,” he said. Our children and grandchildren won’t make judgment based on things like Paul Ryan or Tea Party, he added. “They’ll make a judgment about whether we were up to the task. The operating phrase in the Silicon Valley is to be disruptive, to find new ways of doing things. That description should be part of how we go on from here. “We should begin this phase of our lives by making sure all our synapses are firing, looking forward and not backward.” tws

Garden Party Honors Recent Scholarship Recipients, Donors STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


ne girl bid adieu as another said “Hello” as Carol Harlig threw a garden party for 50-plus women and one man who have contributed thousands of dollars toward their education. Carol’s Guardian Angels, as they have come to be known, contributed more than $50,000 to Wood River High School alum Jozey Mitcham as she spent five years studying engineering at Boise State University. Mitcham came to their attention when she was chosen as one of Paula’s Girls by Hailey dress shop owner Paula Proctor, who bestows a prom dress on a high school graduate each year. When Mitcham graduated in May, the women folded their philanthropy into a 501 3C Carol Harlig Guardian Angel Scholarship, under the umbrella of the Blaine County Education Foundation. And they chose another girl to support for the next four or five years. That girl—K.T. Martinez— was a standout basketball star at Wood River High School and voted Citizen of the Year by her peers every year since sixth grade. She also, noted Harlig, starred in bantam wrestling and Optimist football as a youngster. Martinez has been interning

Her parents—Carey math and science teacher Ron Martinez and Bellevue Elementary School Principal Angie Martinez—already have next year’s basketball game between Dartmouth and nearby Brigham Young University marked on their calendar.

As I am writing this, I am overwhelmed with gratitude to all of you who have helped grow The Ketchum Dollhouse into the “Best Consignment Store” voted on by the readers of Sun Valley Magazine for 2012. Now ladies and gents, the time has come, I have accomplished all my goals in Ketchum. I have hit the glass ceiling. I need to continue on my path of growth, spiritually and creatively, along with expansion of my business and community service. I am choosing to move south to create something new in the community. I am going to use my creative energy to design my Grand Flagship Dollhouse in our Hailey location, at the corner of Maple and South Main Street. Business in Ketchum will continue as usual until Sept. 15th, with a closing party that day (OH YEAH!). Then all current consignments will be transferred to our Hailey boutique and sold there. Everything in regards to how I operate The Dollhouse now, including check payouts, store credits, and clothing pick-ups, will remain the same. However, if you live in Ketchum and need checks mailed to you, please drop off a self-addressed stamped envelope and I will mail the checks to you. If you have questions, catch me Wednesday through Saturday at the Ketchum Dollhouse from 11 to 5. No phone calls, please. Follow our updates on Facebook!

This move is a progression of growth for me, and I hope you all come along for the ride; it’s going to be fantastic. I cannot stay stagnant; I am always looking for the next big adventure, the next big challenge. So here we go—with both owner and manager on site, extended business hours, faster consignment processing, and in a beautifully redesigned boutique. We’ll be offering a special service for Ketchum pick-ups for those of you who never come to Hailey, but I am hoping to change your minds on this one—Hailey is where it’s at! I will miss my Ketchum dolls, so let’s not let that happen! Special thanks to The Weekly Sun (the best); Lisa Holley, my amazing landlord in Ketchum; and Holden at AmeriTitle. XOXO Lara Spencer, owner. tws

Outdoor Warrior BY JONATHAN KANE


achary Lindahl, Community School senior, is a backpacking fool. His love for the outdoors dominates his life and is his preeminent passion. Of course, growing up in the Wood River Valley doesn’t hurt. “Here you see the mountains everywhere,” Lindahl said. “There are so many lakes and peaks and so many adventures to go on that it got me into the outdoors. The first trip I really remember was in second grade when I was about eight years old with the Community School. We went car camping and only stayed one night but it made a big impression on me.” Since the, Lindahl’s adventures have taken him far and wide. When he goes these days, he usually takes his companion, Gunner Olsen, a classmate from school, along for the ride. “It’s a lot better to travel with someone and Gunner and I are simpatico in our likes and dislikes. Usually we just think of a trip on the spot, pull out the computer and look at topographic maps and head off. If there is a nice peak by the lake that we go to, we will climb it.” Of course, safety is essential. “At the Community School, we have a safety program called the Outdoor Leadership Academy. It starts when you are a freshman and it really teaches you how to prepare for the outdoors and how to take precautions to make sure that you’re safe.” As to our backyard wilderness, “My favorite place to go is the Copper Basin. Especially I love to climb the Devil’s Bedstead. I know that the area is really remote and that’s appealing. I was bummed that I lost out on a great trip this summer because I broke my ankle. We were going to go from Alturas to Redfish by going about seven miles a day. We would have been on trail and off. What you do is mark the perfect route on a map. A lot of it will be bushwhacking and climbing over rocks but I know the area pretty

well. My favorite trips are with the Community School when we do our fall campout. We take the sixth through twelfth grades and it’s the perfect way for us to get to know each other. We will hike in and spend two nights and take a day hike. This year we’ll be going to Washington Lake in the Sawtooths.” Lindahl’s greatest experience, however, was when he went to Alaska to backpack. The trip was part of his involvement with the National Outdoors Leadership school program that encourages kids to become leaders in both the backcountry and the front country. “I joined at fourteen when I sent in an application and was accepted. It teaches you both awareness and leadership, like taking charge and to be aware of everything around you, and others. It’s been so beneficial and I’ve applied it to school, academics, people and friends. A perfect example is that I’m co-captain of the soccer team and I don’t want my teammates to overdo it in this smoke. I’ve had to encourage some to go at their own pace. If I see someone panting, I’ll communicate with them.” Then there was Alaska. “It was an indescribable experience and the group I was with was amazing. It consisted of fifteen guys and three leaders. The trip was for thirty days and was across an entire mountain range. You would carry food for a week and then a plane would come in and drop supplies. It was a rugged world in those mountains and being in the tundra. The bushes were incredibly tough because they can withstand high winds and the climate. Also, it was daylight for twenty-four hours because the sun never set. At first it was pretty hard to sleep, so I was glad I had a watch.” Future plans are to backpack through Spain for his Community School senior project. Whatever he attempts, you can be sure that this future leader will succeed. tws

n the Habitat, it’s back to school every year. Someday I’ll run out of years and I still won’t know everything. Drats! I have a full course load, because the lessons are coming from everywhere. There are always individual plant problems, especially those the books and plant labels say ‘likes full sun.’ They don’t know Idaho. The majority of those get gurneyed to the ICU. Some plants cannot be moved so I have to do on-site triage, which involves diet change, altered soil, and usually more watering. I don’t irrigate, so there are no IV drips. Plants communicate quickly—in a matter of hours, or definitely within a few days— and it’s not just root shock. They rate their placement as pro, con or neutral quite quickly. If you love them, you can tell. This isn’t magical thinking or a subjective ‘green thumb.’ If you care about them (or people), you pay attention, and make sure the basics are covered, like food, water, placement, and post-natal care. A successful garden results from practical care, like a successful relationship depends on paying attention to various details. Subjective factors like love or talent actually play a secondary role, especially in the long run. Both the devil and the saint are in the details. The easiest problem to spot is the need for water (in that regard, I’m just like my plants, I dehydrate easily). The leaves droop, they curl protectively inward or hug the stems to guard against water loss through transpiration. On a shrub or a tree, a branch will dry up, indicating insufficient water around some parts of the root ball. The width of the root ball is usually the same as the spread of the foliage. Other, less obvious problems, involve playing house, and require diagnostics or, finally, gut instinct. There are many plants that have been put in the wrong place, or their neighbors have grown over them. They lack visibility and need to be moved to a more starring role. Candidates for relocation here are, blue festuca grass, black-eyed Susans, aurinia, monarda, hollyhock, saponaria, salvia, asters, and a few more. These simple moves will increase the area’s visual profile. One of the enduring challenges has been how to keep the paths relatively maintenance free without hiring Acme Paving and Asphalt. I settled on the laying down of wet newspapers on a weed-free path covered with

Coreopsis in the Habitat.

a cushion of grass clippings. It’s easy to maintain and works pretty well. Straw can also be used. I also use slabs of colorful sandstone, but that sells by the pound, and that adds up fast. Another job is the haircut. Plants need to be cut back, their spent blossoms lopped off close to the ground. Yarrow, flax, bachelor buttons and oxeye daisy will reseed like crazy, and the seed heads aren’t attracting birds. Crushed flax seed makes a good poultice, but I’m not a shaman, so I just go to the pharmacy. The very profusion that was July now has to be cut and carted away to be composted. This removal highlights the goldenrods, the asters, the rabbit brush, the few remaining gaillardia and some late-blooming meadows. I seeded for meadow flowers/grasses but nothing came up because the lupines and others mentioned above blocked out the sun. Cutting back summer growth has had the effect of a wildfire, opening up the undergrowth to sunlight and, all of a sudden, here come the clarkia, the poppies, and California annuals like baby blue eyes, five spot and tidy tips—springtime in August! Also cutting back plants will often provide a second blooming in some varieties. With several weeks of good weather left, these colorful charmers will have the stage all to themselves. tws

Sawtooth Exploration Exploring the Sawtooths; A Comprehensive Guide by Matt Leidecker; 144 pages BY MARGOT VAN HORN


ust in time for your late summer and fall hiking explorations of the Sawtooths comes this really wonderful guidebook. Matt Leidecker has indeed been busy compiling now four superior guide books: Middle Fork of the Salmon River; The Rogue River—a Comprehensive Guide From Prospect to Gold Beach; Exploring Sun Valley—a Comprehensive Guide to the Boulder, Pioneer, and Smoky Mountains; and now this latest book dealing with the gorgeous Sawtooth territory. Leidecker’s latest book was published with support from the Sawtooth Society, which promotes the preservation, protection, and enhancement of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. It also was funded with the help of the terrific website “KickStart” where Matt was able to raise more than $7,500 through pre-sales of the book, Tshirts, and photographic prints. (Isn’t the computer world an amazing one?) This 11-by-6-inch, beautifully plastic ring-bound book has pages that are waterproof and

tear-proof. It also has three-ring punch holes in it if you wish to unbind it easily and put it in your own three-ring binder. That way you can easily remove the pages you wish to take with you. The pictures in it, taken by Matt, are gorgeous and prolific. The topo maps of each area are detailed and perfect for the avid hiker. Additionally, there are overview maps. But this book is not only for the hiker, it is also for the climber, mountain biker, scrambler, peak bagger, geologist, wildflower enthusiast, and curious historian. It is written with love and enthusiasm so you’ll really enjoy reading it—just like a normal book. It’s a bedside book to pick up and lust over nightly. Lastly, it’s very user-friendly so as to be able to negotiate to whatever you wish to explore easily. As far as I am concerned, it is a must-have for any outdoor enthusiast anxious to explore the Sawtooth area. Thirty-three dollars is a very reasonable price for the purchase of such a fine guidebook. Congratulations, Matt, for your accomplishments, and thank you from outdoor enthusiast, me. I can’t wait to use some of your info in the very near future. Give us your feedback at martws

You can have them begin depositing money in their savings account, and you can have your child’s savings account to pay for their college tuition by an automatic draft. This teaches them that they, too, are investing in their future. If you as a parent don’t understand finances enough to explain them to your child, contact a financial advisor or a registered representative to assist you with your financial strategy. There are many classes that can teach your children about money as well.” (Michelle Oliver, Financial Representative, Virginia Asset Management (Oliver, 2011).

inancial matters aren’t limited to just dollars and cents; insurance plays a key role in financial stability. Getting your children involved early on in family finances will teach them how to be fiscally responsible. Many of us wonder how we can help our children succeed financially without giving them everything, but while still emphasizing a good work ethic. Here are some questions you can use given by Northwestern Mutual to evaluate yourself in this area: • Do you have enough life insurance now that a child depends on your income? • Is your disability insurance sufficient? • Would your child be able to attend college if something happened to you? Family financial planning may be derailed by the unexpected death of you or your partner. A disability or illness could prevent you or your partner from working and sidetrack your own retirement plan. You may need to expand your family financial planning to include increases in life insurance and disability insurance to help ensure financial security for your child (Northwestern Mutual,




uying organic is a great choice for your health, but since organic produce is often more expensive than non-organic, be wise and allocate your organic produce purchases to the items most likely to be contaminated with pesticides. Shop smart by making nonorganic produce purchases from the list of items less likely to be dangerous to your health. These vegetables and fruits tend to be the ones with thick skins, which you are peeling off anyway. Among the fruits, that list would include kiwis, pineapples, and watermelons, plus papayas and mangos. Before peeling, wash with a soapy sponge and rinse well. Among the vegetables, avocados, fresh corn, eggplant, and sweet peas also have thick protective skins which can be washed, then removed. Some vegetables simply don’t have as much pesticide accumulation, mainly because they aren’t as susceptible to diseases and pests, and so aren’t sprayed as frequently. Cabbage and onions fall here, so just wash these vegetables, and pull off their outer layers. Asparagus is another vegetable that is less likely to be dosed with pesticides. To put this all from the other perspective, save your dollars to purchase the organically raised versions of berries, apples, potatoes, celery, greens, peppers, and soft fruits like nectarines and peaches.

The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR AUg. 22, 2012 By: Jim sAnTA

S- Live Music _- Benefit Theatre


his week I’m going to depart from the typical local fishing talk and bring to the forefront a subject that should be important to all fishermen and anyone who is conservation minded. This being the ongoing campaign to help turn the tide in the decadeslong battle to save Idaho’s imperiled salmon and steelhead from extinction, and restore them to self –sustaining and healthy levels. It’s a very appropriate time of season to be talking about this as the annual migration of salmon and steelhead into Idaho is currently in progress. I was particularly motivated to talk about this as following a mountain bike ride up north at Fisher Creek this week I stopped by the Sawtooth Hatchery to check on the progress of the salmon run. In addition to the fish already in the hatchery runways, there was a good number of fish in the river below the hatchery. To see these magnificent fish in the Salmon River, in the middle of Idaho, having come some 900 river miles from the Pacific is truly awesome! What is devastating is that the count of fish that have arrived at the hatchery thus far was a bit under 1000. Idaho’s wild salmon are struggling. Our populations of wild summer-spring Chinook, once the largest salmon run in the world, are down to 20,000 returning fish a year. During the time of Lewis and Clark about 4 million salmon returned to Idaho and even in the 1960’s still returned in self sustaining numbersabout 130,000 annually. So why are Idaho’s wild salmon so important? Historically, the Nez Perce and Shoshone-bannock tribes depended upon salmon for food and spiritual reasons. In the late 1800’s, salmon fed the early miners, loggers and settlers. Today, salmon and steelhead fuel Idaho’s economy. Idaho Fish and Game reports that steelhead fishermen spend an average of $316 a day and a recent study suggested that restored salmon and steelhead runs could generate $544 million a year for Idaho’s economy. But most significantly, salmon are a keystone species for the ecosystem. When the adult salmon return to spawn they bring tons of rich nutrients home to Idaho’s otherwise sterile mountain streams. Hundreds of species feed on the carcasses of these salmon. The wastes from these animals fertilize our wild rivers, alpine meadows and lush green forests. Culturally and ecologically, salmon abundance has made Idaho what it is today. Clearly these salmon and steelhead need our help to survive. This is the primary campaign of Idaho Rivers United (IRU), a grassroots organization devoted to protecting and restoring the rivers of Idaho. The Wild Salmon Legacy Campaign is currently IRU’s top priority. To learn more about this very important project or to get involved please visit Also, on August 25th IRU is presenting the annual Sawtooth Salmon Festival in Stanley,, to celebrate and create greater awareness of this critical resource.

movie review

Off and Running Three bumblebees



o you want to take a break and get out of this smoke? Then head over to the air-conditioned confines of your nearest local cinema and spend a very enjoyable 90 minutes with Will Ferrel and Zach Galifianakis and their new movie The Campaign. With lots of R-rated laughs, this new film will tickle your funny bone while also raising some serious commentary on the state of our political system. It also restores your faith in Will Ferrelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to make you laugh out loud. This is news only because many of his previous efforts have left the viewer wanting more and yearning for his glory days of Old School. Well, have no fear. Although nothing he does will ever top Old School, the new movie has more than its share of belly laughs and Ferrel moments.

Also stealing the show is a great portrayal of a lovable doofus by Galifianakis who appears sans beard for the first time. His work is so good in the picture that if you already love him, you have to see this or discover him for the first time. Ferrel plays a four-term North Carolina Congressman who is running unopposed. When two billionaire brothers get upset at a political scandal, they decide to throw their weight behind a political nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Galifianakis in the GOP Primary. With the help of a coach, he is transformed into a lean, mean, fighting machine and more than an admirable adversary. Of course, the transformation is hilarious, as are the conflicts between the two leads. In the end, the story packs a punch because of the sad state of affairs in the American political system. Money buys all and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re left as the suckers holding the bag. tws

A sell-out crowd fought through plane cancellations and delays caused by smoke from wildfires at the Hailey airport to attend the Sun Valley Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Conference this past weekend at Sun Valley Resort. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to quiet ourselves for four days and allow the story to transform us and transport us to other worlds, Conference Director Robin Eidsmo told the crowd, which filled the 1,600seat Pavilion. We hope we can nurture you throughout the rest of the year with what you hear here, added Literary Director John Burnham Schwartz. A quarter of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attendees were here for the first time. Participants included a plethora of movers and shakers, including a former Los Angeles mayor, a former Los Angeles district attorney, a former U.S. Poet Laureate and a former Secretary of State. And they included tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaders in the form of Wood River High School students taking notes for advanced placement classes they will be studying in this fall. Former NBC News Anchor Tom Brokaw told how, as a journalist, he had ridden on the coattails of those who preceded him, including Henry the V, whom he said was an even better war correspondent than Shakespeare, and Harriet Beecher Stowe, whom he called the first civil rights reporter. Steve Jobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; biographer Walter Isaacson told how the Apple guru had pressed to make his products so simple that even a stoned college kid could work

The Influence of PBMs on Your Health, Money BY LUKE SNELL


any people have heard of Pharmacy Benefit Managers (PBMs) but few know what a PBM is. PBMs emerged in the late 1970s as prescription coverage was more commonly being added to health insurance plans provided by employers. PBMs were born to serve as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;middlemanâ&#x20AC;? to handle the processing and adjudication of prescription claims on behalf of a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health plan in an attempt to keep prescription drug costs down for the company. Today, PBMs adjudicate approximately 4 billion prescriptions annually, or 90 percent of all prescriptions. Of those 4 billion prescription claims, the majority are processed by CVS/Caremark, Medco and Express Scripts. Medco and Express Scripts recently merged into one giant PBM that controls over half of all prescriptions filled. Unfortunately, prescription drug prices and prescription plans have only gone up in price and, not surprisingly, so have the profits of PBMs. This has forced a much closer look into PBMs and the possibility that they may be contributing to the increasing costs we see today. Because these large PBMs account for such a large percentage of all prescriptions processed, they are able to get pharmacies to agree to low reimbursement rates for their dispensing of prescriptions. This makes the initial appeal for a company to

Th e W e e k l y S u n â&#x20AC;˘

utilize one of these giant PBMs understandable, as the PBM is able to show how a certain drug normally costs X number of dollars but, if adjudicated through the PBM, it will be X minus a percentage. The savings seems obvious so the company allows the PBM to be the middleman for the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prescription claims. Unfortunately, the company doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize there are many additional fees for each and every prescription processed that extend beyond the simple â&#x20AC;&#x153;X minus a percentage.â&#x20AC;? One of the ways PBMs make such large profits is through rebates from drug manufacturers. Medco, for example, generates about $3 billion in rebates annually. Rebates can help decrease expenses for a plan, but there are a couple of problems associated with rebates. The first problem is that the PBM isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t passing enough of these rebates back to the employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health plan so the planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prescription expenses remain high. The other problem is that these rebates are a determining factor in deciding which drugs go on the planâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s formulary. A drug manufacturer can simply buy their way on to the PBMsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; formulary. A PBM will put the drug as a preferred drug even when there are cheaper alternatives available because the PBM is receiving a huge rebate that they get to pocket even though there will be more total dollars the plan sponsor has to pay since the cheaper alternative wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on the formulary. Beyond these hidden costs is

August 22, 2012

the practice of forcing mail order upon members of a plan even though poll after poll has shown that when given the choice a person would prefer to have their prescriptions filled at a local pharmacy instead of delivered by mail. Despite this fact, plan members are continually forced into mail order for many of their medications by penalizing the member with higher co-pays at their local pharmacy or not covering the medication at all at the local pharmacy. Just last week I had to inform one of my longtime customers that her insurance would no longer pay for refills at my pharmacy and would only pay for refills through mail order. Why does this happen? The PBM literally owns the mail order pharmacy. The deceptive methods used by the PBMs to make mail order appear cheaper to the plan sponsor are alarming and do not factor in the huge waste that occurs with mail order pharmacy. The topic of PBMs is massive, yet the reality is that almost every one of us is affected by the practices of PBMs. More information can be found at and tws

Conference Sound Bites BY KAREN BOSSICK


’ve been around the conference for some time and this is the first time a speaker justifies the phrase, “This speaker needs no introduction.” …When I was thrown out of CBS after losing a corporate boardroom struggle, Tom Brokaw was there, even though he was a competitor. Personally and professionally, he’s always been above reproach, even though TV is a land of sharp elbows and slanderous gossip. I spent 60 hours a week plotting how to steal his audience and turn NBC into a weak signal from Saskatchewan… But his values… are exemplified in his book… He’s a Main Street kind of guy.— Van Gordon Sauter, referring to his former neighbor My one fear is that some will walk out muttering, “Who got Tom Brokaw to be keynote speaker? It’s like getting Kim Kardashian to talk to the Mensa Society.”—Tom Brokaw, author of “Boom” Because we’ve outsourced wars, we’re not aware that once we throw away the commandment, “Thou shalt not kill,” everything else is up for grabs. – Alexandra Fuller, author of “Scribbling the Cat: Travels with an African Soldier”

It hasn’t escaped my notice that women basically do all the work—Sebastian Barry, Irish poet, playwright and author of “On Canaan’s Side”

No tribe had such a determinate effect on the course of history in America than the Comanche. The frontier didn’t budge for 40 years because of them. In fact, it moved backwards. – Sam Gwynne, author of “Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, The Most Powerful Tribe in American History” Coming to Sun Valley is a spiritual experience—not only to be with fellow writers but to be with readers.—Dr. Abraham Verghese, author of “My Own Country” I became a writer to escape my elementary school textbooks. “Look Jane Look”—was there ever anyone dumber? – Naomi Shihab Nye, author of “You and Yours” and “19 Varieties of Gazelle: Poems of the Middle East” I believe Ernest Hemingway was on a quest for sainthood. And at every turn he defeated himself… There was much more fear inside Hemingway than he

ever let on. The thought of selfdestruction trailed Hemingway for nearly his entire life. – Paul Hendrickson, author of “Hemingway’s Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost”

If we find life on Mars, or the ice shelf of Europe, what will it change? Nothing at all. Of course, it will be a triumph, and biologists will go crazy.—E.O. Wilson, author of “On Human Nature” I never feel more American than when I’m traveling abroad.—James Fallows, author of “China Airborne”

As Steve Jobs approached death, he said, “Maybe I’ll make it to the next lily pad. Maybe I won’t.” He said: “I’d like to believe in God—half the time I do. Sometimes I’m worried that when you die, it’s like an on and off switch—Flip! You’re gone.” Then he got that smile, and said, “Maybe that’s why I didn’t like to put off switches on my devices.” –Walter Isaacson, author of tws “Steve Jobs”

Dividend Investing BY LORI NURGE


he most visible and most understandable way to judge a stock’s performance is by the rate of growth of its share price. It’s easy to focus only on capital gains, but one often-overlooked aspect of investing is dividends. The potential growth of dividends paid back to shareholders can, over time, be significant. Employing a strategy combining market growth and reinvested dividends can help you reach your financial goals while potentially minimizing the amount of risk in your portfolio. The stability offered by regular dividends can help balance out the generally more volatile nature of investing in stocks. What Is a Dividend? A dividend is a distribution of a corporation’s earnings to its shareholders, typically made on a quarterly basis. Dividends are paid on a per-share basis, so the more shares an investor owns, the greater the dividend he or she will areceive. A company’s dividend payout ratio is the percentage of earnings distributed to shareholders in the form of dividends and is calculated by dividing dividend per share by its earnings per share. The dividend payout ratio offers an indication of how well earnings support the dividend payments. More mature companies tend to have higher dividend payout ratios. Dividends are one indicator of a company’s health. By issuing a dividend, a company is exhibit-

ing its healthy cash flow and signaling that it believes its growth is sustainable. Who Issues Dividends? Many, but certainly not all, companies issue dividends. Companies that are experiencing rapid growth (growth stocks) generally do not pay dividends, instead choosing to plow their earnings back into their operations with the hopes of eventually rewarding investors through capital appreciation. Dividend-issuing stocks typically offer less volatility than do growth stocks, because the dividends they pay are based on the company’s profitability, not market perceptions. In a bear market, this can be especially attractive, as dividend-paying companies may continue to provide a return while other growthoriented stocks are declining. Dividends also help encourage stability in ownership and lower turnover, as investors are more likely to hold onto the stock during difficult times in order to receive the dividend. What to Look For In dividend investing, look for stocks that have a track record of consistently increasing their dividends. These are usually strong, stable companies that have self-imposed discipline to continue to perform well and earn a profit year in and year out. Dividends offer a means of keeping a company’s management in check, helping encourage sound, responsible decision-making. Most companies that issue dividends are very reluctant to either decrease or

eliminate their dividends, as that sends a negative message to the investing public which could possibly result in a sell-off of the stock. Maintaining and increasing dividend payments requires consistent earnings growth. Looking at a company’s earnings growth over time can help you determine if it will consistently offer dividends in the future. However, it should be noted that changes in market conditions or a company’s financial condition may impact the company’s ability to continue to pay dividends, and companies may also choose to discontinue dividend payments. Dividend investing may be an especially good strategy for baby boomers to adopt as they near retirement. Finding and investing in stocks that not only offer a solid dividend, but also increase their dividend payments, can help provide retirement income without having to sell off assets. And in order to outpace the rate of inflation, it generally makes sense for retirees to include some equities among their holdings. For more information on dividend investing, please contact your financial advisor today.

verythingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upside down when Sun Valley Shakespeare Festival presents â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twelfth Nightâ&#x20AC;? this week in Ketchumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Forest Service Park. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as it should be, considering the title of the play refers to the twelfth night of Epiphany which those in Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time celebrated as a festival in which everything was turned upside down. The play, considered one of Shakespeareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funniest, centers around Viola who disguises herself as a young man after she and her twin brother are shipwrecked. Alas, she soon finds herself swooning for the duke she serves named Orsino. Orsino, in turn, lusts after Olivia, who, of course, falls for Viola, whom she thinks is a boy. Three stooges, chagrined to be scolded by Oliviaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s servant Malvolio, get back at him by penning a note that makes him believe Olivia is in love with himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and

Jamie Wygle, Erich Von Tagen and Jamey Reynolds hatch a plan during â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twelfth Night.â&#x20AC;?

that he will cement her fondness for him if only he dons stockings the color of a canary and treats the other servants rudely. And, uh-oh, Violaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twin brother Sebastianâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;believed to be deadâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;shows up, adding to the mayhem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These people play jokes on each other to the point of excess. They go too far, and realizing that and remedying it is part of the lesson,â&#x20AC;? said Director Tracy Bersley. The play stars Beth Hilles as Viola, Dawson Howard as Orsino, Patsy Wygle as Olivia, Mackenzie Harbaugh as Sebastian, Scott Creighton as Malvolio and Keith Moore as Feste the Fool. Other actors include Jamey Reynolds, Erich Von Tagen, Harry Dreyfus, Sam Brown, Jamie Wygle and Doug Neff and veteran Shakespearean actress Gina Allure from New York.

Bersley, who teaches acting, movement and dramatic writing at Princeton University and CAP 21 in New York City, has directed several Shakespeare productions. This is her first in Sun Valley.

TABLE to your’s



was walking the Sun Valley Center Arts and Crafts Festival when I bumped into my dear friend, Lois A., now living in Santa Barbara. I had made her this dish when she had visited me at my bed and breakfast in Paso Robles, Calif. She reminded me how much she enjoyed this dish and that, darned!, she had lost the recipe. So, Lois, this is for you. Welcome back to Sun Valley. And Pat, for you and the other so kind “From My Table to Yours” readers, thank you so much for your ongoing praises for this column. Now that our tasty locally grown Hagerman corn is for sale in great abundance in our markets, this is the perfect breakfast or brunch dish to enjoy. Even for dinner, it is good. This recipe may sound a bit complicated, but it’s really not—so just go for it!

Cheese Soufflé with Corn and Jalapeños Ingredients:

2 medium onions, sliced 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter 2 more Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted 2 fresh jalapeño chilies cut into halves lengthwise, seeded and cut into strips 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2 C. fresh corn kernels cut off the cob (2 1/2 to 3 ears will do) Salt & pepper 10 oz. shredded Monterey jack cheese 5 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese 6 eggs, lightly beaten 1/2 C. milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook onions in 2 Tbsp. butter in an ovenproof skillet (I use my large cast-iron skillet) over low heat until tender but not brown. Stir in the jalapeños and garlic and cook for 2 minutes more— stirring continually. Add the corn, salt and pepper to taste, and mix well. Cook for about a minute more, stirring as before. Spoon 2/3 of the corn mixture into a bowl and add the 2 melted Tbsp. of butter in the 1/3 corn mixture left in the skillet. Toss the Monterey jack and cheddar in a bowl. (So now you have two side bowls: one with the cheese mixture and one with the 2/3s of corn mixture.) Into the skillet start layering: 1/3 of the cheese mixture over the corn mixture; then spread with 1/2 of remaining corn mixture in the bowl; then spread with 1/2 of the remaining cheese mixture and top with the remaining corn mixture in the bowl. Well, you get the idea. Just make sure to layer and to leave some cheese for the very last topping. Whisk the eggs, milk and a dash of salt and pepper in another bowl until blended and pour over the prepared layers. Sprinkle the top with the last of the remaining cheese mixture. Bake for 25 minutes or until puffed and brown. Tie a pretty napkin around the skillet’s handle and serve hot or at room temp. Tortillas or focaccia make a nice accompaniment for this dish..

Grab Your Partner, Do-Si-Do


The State of Idaho issued stickers, rather than plates, during 1943 and 1944 when tin and other materials were being reserved for the war effort.

Davies loaned one of his family’s original 1913 plates to someone who absconded with it. He finally found the plate in a collection in New York City. “I said I’d give him $5,000 if you return it,” he recalled. “He said it would cost me more so I said, ‘Forget it.’ Instead, I took one of our rusty plates and found a guy named Loyal Cooper in Kimberly who restored it so it was like a brand new plate. My dad would have been pleased.” Most of the plates that belonged to the Davies family feature the number 129, which was John’s grandfather’s telephone number. Davies had a vanity plate with “Davies” on it made one year but found it too conspicuous. “Everyone knew what I’d been doing all day long. They’d tell me, ‘I saw you at such and such and so and so’s,’” he recalled. Bellevue resident Grace Eakin, who volunteers at the Bellevue Museum, says the 1934 plate is her favorite. “That was the year I was born and it’s hard even to find a calendar for 1934 nowadays,” she said.

ith someone allegedly starting a fire near the Red Warrior trail last week, the local populace couldn’t help but be jumpy. Especially with the leaves of arrowleaf balsamroot on Knob Hill so crinkly they crumble like old paper. One golfer reportedly sent sparks flying as she apparently struck a rock with her club. Everyone was only too happy to pitch in with their water bottles to douse the mini-conflagration. STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


embers of St. Thomas Episcopal Church recently swapped their Sunday best for dancing duds as they turned their parking lot into a squaredancing floor. Fortified with burgers and dogs, they do-si-doed into the sunset, breaking only to try a little line dancing. The vast majority, which included Sandra Maier and Dave Harrison, admitted that they’re not very good at it. “I keep running into people. But I sure like doing it,” said one. Square-dancing fans may get a chance to do more if organizer Jane Reynolds Eagan gets her wish to offer square-dancing classes this fall. “It’s a lost art and we want to bring it back,” said Reynolds Eagan, who used to square dance during high school. “It’s easy. Anyone can do it. And it’s a nice way to meet people since tws you end up dancing with different partners.”

AT THE MUSEUM The Bellevue Museum, located in the old Bellevue city hall with a steeple on top, is located on Main Street in the heart of Bellevue. It’s open from noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day. Passersby may gain entry on other days by calling the number on the door. The museum also features an 1800’s log cabin jail that used to serve as the drunk tank, christening and wedding dresses dating back to the early 1900s, and farm implements. tws Admission is free.

Quinn said a worker will be harnessed up to check out the screen soon and wires and all will be cleaned, as needed. tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I recently married the love of my life. While I owned a home in New England near my family, she owned one in the South near her parents. We decided to live equally distant from both families and settled on a place somewhere in the middle. All we had to do was sell our houses. Mine went on the market as a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) and sold very quickly. My wife's house hasn't seen much activity and I'm concerned. We already picked out our new home, but have to sell hers in order to move. Otherwise, I'll be moving in with her. I'm worried because my in-laws only live a mile away and like to stop by with dinner unannounced. I adore my wife, but I'm not sure I can handle living that close to her family. Any ideas on how we can make her house more attractive to buyers as a FSBO?

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Carry: There's nothing

like a new set of in-laws to help you get motivated. Cash: By now we hope you've given your home "curb appeal" to make it more attractive to potential buyers. You should have cleaned it up inside and out, fixed any

major problems, repainted old walls, mowed the grass and planted flowers. The better it looks, the better your chances are for selling. Carry: The next step is to check your asking price. Since you're not getting much activity, compare your price to other homes of similar size, style and location. Price your home slightly lower to gain more interest. Cash: The key to a fast sale is great advertising. If your ads are not generating interest, leave them out of the newspaper for a week or two. Then, place a new ad with a different picture and better wording. Buyers typically look at the new ads first to see what just came on the market.

Carry: If you really want a quick sale to avoid living next to your in-laws, consider some creative incentives. Offer to pay the buyer's mortgage or property taxes for the first year when they buy your home. Although it may cost you several thousand dollars, it can make for a quick sale. Cash: Another option is to have a one-day sale. Advertise an open house and let buyers submit their best offers in envelopes throughout the day. At the end of your open house, you can choose the highest bidder. Carry: And remember as an added incentive, you can always tell them that your in-laws can stop by with dinner.

Although the Internet has changed much of the real estate market, sellers still rely on standard methods for advertising their home. According to the National Association of Realtors, 9% of all homes are purchased directly from the previous owner. These are the methods they typically used for advertising: â&#x20AC;˘ 61% used a simple sign posted in the front yard. â&#x20AC;˘ 46% used word of mouth through friends and neighbors. â&#x20AC;˘ 37% used a newspaper ad. â&#x20AC;˘ 29% held an open house. â&#x20AC;˘ 17% advertised on the Internet.

Hard Work

Be prepared. Selling a house on your own can take a lot of work. A survey of FSBO sellers found these tasks to be the most challenging: â&#x20AC;˘ Understanding the paperwork (17%) â&#x20AC;˘ Fixing up or preparing the home for sale (16%) â&#x20AC;˘ Getting the right price (14%) â&#x20AC;˘ Attracting potential buyers (9%) â&#x20AC;˘ Having enough time to devote to the sale (8%) â&#x20AC;˘


Reader Humor Out The Window

I admit that sometimes I can be overbearing and offer too much direction. Fortunately, my husband always finds a way to let me know. On the day we moved into our new home, I was in full force telling him exactly where to place every box we moved in from the truck. Coincidentally, on the same day we noticed a pair of birds moving into a birdhouse hanging outside our new front porch. As my husband and I stopped to watch them bring straw into the birdhouse, I asked, "Which one do you think is the male?" "That's easy," my husband smiled at me. "He's the one being pecked at." (Thanks to Karen G.)

518 raves Last of the season Sun Valley Summer Symphony rave from Margot: Wasn’t Mahler’s 6th on Tues., Aug. 7 supposed to last 80 minutes? I guess it was by my watch, but honestly it seemed like 30 minutes. The Mahler presented by Alasdair and his gang was not only gorgeous, but also dramatic. Boy those percussion guys were busy!! Bells in the Pavilion; bells back stage — and then the amazing black box. Glad it was that brave musician lifting that mallet and not I. Parker’s flying fingers on the Rhapsody were mesmerizing; Ehnes was amazing. How did he ever have the energy after that demanding Sibelius to play THREE astounding encores—thank you James; the Dvorak and Tchaikovsky were special as were every single one of the SVSS presentations. Thank you Alasdair and all of the symphony members, the SVSS organization, contributors and volunteers, the Sun Valley City and Co., and all who made it happen. We in this area are so lucky to have such a fabulous experience. Here’s to next year — I can’t wait!!!! Margot Van Horn. Praise to everyone involved with that gorgeous-looking (and greatlyneeded) beautification overhaul that took place by the Sun Valley Resort’s Sun Valley Road entrance. I know some of the full-time “tree huggers” here are audibly lamenting the loss of those rather sickly-looking trees that used to be there, but I, for one, think the grass and flowers that are there now look A LOT more inviting to visitors and residents alike!! :) After a two-week (Olympics-inspired) hiatus, “So You Think You Can Dance?” came roaring back last Wednesday with another terrific two-hour show -- with stand-outs including Dareian & Janelle, Chehon & Whitney, Eliana & Cyrus, George & Tiffany, and especially Lindsay and her partner (who’s name I forgot).

Cowboy Gus, an Australian terrier, has had problems walking since puppyhood, they said. But all three dogs enjoy a lift now and then.
