Healing and Consciousness Workshop By RIAN ERVIN


he Art of Living Foundation will be hosting a workshop led by Swami Pragyapad, a renowned humanitarian and dynamic teacher, on August 28. Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, The Art of Living Foundation is an international nonprofit educational agency that teaches breathing and meditation techniques to release stress. After hosting workshops in Boise, Pragyapad will travel to Sun Valley to lead a presentation on the use of breath, yoga and meditation in everyday life. Leslye Moore, a volunteer teacher and member of the national board of directors, explains: “The Art of Living Foundation teaches stress relief techniques to help individuals achieve inner peace and to help create a violence-free society.” The Foundation has centers in 152 countries, and is also associated with many disaster relief projects. They have a strong core of volunteers who travel the world to provide physical and mental relief as well as material aid service. The Foundation teaches specific breathing techniques that help to release well-being hormones that in turn reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress. “There is a lot of practical knowledge in this ancient wisdom that we bring into modern times,” says Moore. The Foundation is one of the largest volunteer-based organizations in the world, relying on donations and private and federal grants for funding. The August 28 workshop with Swami Pragyapad will serve as an introductory taste to the larger workshops that the Foundation provides, focusing on breathing techniques and yoga. “He is one of the coolest people I’ve ever met,” Moore says laughing. “He is very down to earth, funny, has the warm presence of a healer, and is delightful to be around.” Originally studying engineering at one of India’s top universities, Pragyapad drastically changed his career, choosing instead to pursue an altruistic lifestyle, traveling the world to teach healing workshops. He now serves as the international director for The Art of Living Foundation. His workshops typically draw crowds of thousands of people, and it is an exciting opportunity to have him present in the Wood River Valley. This is not an event to miss! The workshop will take place Sunday, August 28 at the Hailey Yoga Center, located at 91 E. Croy St., Alturas Plaza, from 7-9 p.m. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door or online at id=101218 tws

Flyin’ higher than an Eagle PHOTOS & STORY By KAREN BOSSICK


rnie Butler didn’t know how he would feel once the paragliding wings caught air, lifting him up in the air for the first time since he was paralyzed parachuting at a World Championship competition. But he hardly had time to get nervous. The wheels on the off-road wheelchair he was riding barely spun two full revolutions before he was up in the air soaring over Bald Mountain. Butler and pilot Nick Greece, who stood behind the wheelchair, coasted along the thermals on the unusual contraption, which looked like a dune buggy—or even the magic car from “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”—to those watching from the ground below. And then, just as suddenly as they’d taken off, Butler felt the chair bouncing through the sagebrush field adjacent to the River Run parking lot. “Whooo!” yelled an elated Greece, a World Cup paragliding champion. “This guy has been under canopy over 6,000 times and this is his first time under canopy since 1995. And I got to share it with him!” “I didn’t know how I would feel back under canopy,” added Butler, as he caught his breath. “But the launch went so smoothly and we were in the air so quick. It was so comfortable I felt as if I was flying in a chaise lounge. I felt like I’d come home.” Butler was one of five men who took part last week in a program offered through Sun Valley Adaptive Sport’s

Higher Ground program for disabled veterans. The Higher Ground Flight School was designed to test an off-road paragliding chair with big mountain bike tires designed by ABLE Pilot Mark Gaskill, a former Navy corpsman, and the mechanical engineering department at the University of Utah. Their hope: To offer wheelchair users a vehicle to become independent pilots. The Flight School, which received a $10,000 Quality of Life grant from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, is the first of its kind, said Sean McEntee, Higher Ground’s program manager. The veterans who answered the call could have stepped out of “The Right Stuff,” given their motivation and drive. Brent King was an Army officer at Fort Benning, Ga., when a rope on the obstacle

course whipped and threw him 22 feet, breaking his back 17 years ago. He was 24. Now a general contractor in Spokane, Wash., he uses adaptive equipment to snow ski and waterski. And he plays wheelchair basketball and tennis. But the thought of paragliding has him juiced. “We may have to sit. But we don’t have to sit still,” he said. Darol Kubacz was paralyzed during a training accident at Fort Knox, Ky., when he swerved his motorcycle to avoid getting hit by another vehicle. He snow skis, waterskis, sand kites and scuba dives. He’s climbed Mount Kilimanjaro using a hand cycle he operated while lying on his stomach. And he just returned from Tanzania where he helped build toilets for disabled people. But his lifelong dream has been to fly. He and his bride of six weeks recently took a paragliding school together. And he had built a wooden platform with pneumatic tires to practice controlling paragliding wings when Flight School came along. “Paragliding’s something I can do with my wife and brothers.” said the Phoenix

t stands just three feet tall, weighing in at 35 pounds. But on Monday The Stanley Cup may have been the biggest thing in the minds of hundreds of sports fans who flocked to the Ketchum Town Plaza to touch its shiny silver, gaze upon the names of hockey greats inscribed on its chalice and even pucker up for it. “This is what the hockey world lives for,” said Sun Valley Suns player Charles Friedman. Friedman was among more than 300 people who lined up to have their pictures taken with the coveted cup by the midst of its 2 and one-half-hour viewing. Many, like Friedman, wore their hockey jerseys despite the blazing sun of August beating down on them. “We had to come and see it,” said the matriarch of the Buzzards, an Alaskan team that’s been spending the summer in Twin Falls. Jim “Beets” Johnson got the chance to bring National Hockey League’s championship trophy to his adopted hometown of Ketchum because of his gig as assistant equipment manager with the Boston Bruins, who became the reigning Stanley Cup championships in mid-June. “This is a dream come true,” he said as he watched people offer donations to local youth hockey programs in exchange for their 15 seconds with the Cup. Toronto, Canada, native Howie Borrow, who has escorted the Cup around the world for the past two years, kept a watchful eye on the Cup. In the past, he said, it’s ended up in swimming pools and in gentleman’s clubs.

Debbi Fox gets her minute’s worth with The Cup.

It’s not allowed to be in casinos because of casino rules. And it cannot be taken sky diving since that could bring irreparable harm to what is professional sports’ oldest trophy, first awarded in 1893. “It’s considered ‘the people’s trophy’—you can hug it, kiss it,” he said. “But only players have the right to pick it up—they earn that right.” Deborah Fox lingered, unwilling to tear herself away from the trophy. Her son, Austin Grill, drove up from Boise Sunday night to touch it upon its arrival in Ketchum, even though he had a 7:40 a.m. class on Monday morning—the first day of classes at Boise State University. “He said, Mom, I’ve got to come,” said a tearful Fox, clad in an oversized Idaho Steelheads jersey. “He was a hockey player from the time he was 3—he grew up playing hockey here and then played Junior A for the Idaho Steelheads until he realized he could no longer skate at the level he needed to because of a knee injury. Now he wants to become an orthopedic surgeon so he can help other hockey players. It is, after all, the greatest game on tws earth.”

Martial Arts Academy Opens in Bellevue

Longtime local resident Lee Anderson has opened a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/ Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Bellevue for men, women and children. JiuJitsu is a martial art based on technique and leverage, not strength and size. It promotes physical fitness, self-confidence, focus and discipline. Jiu-Jitsu is a fun, full-body workout with the benefit of learning to physically defend yourself. Class times are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6-8 p.m. All ages and skill levels are welcome. There will be a grand opening Sunday, September 4, open to the public at 2 p.m. — after the parade. The public is invited to come and enjoy demonstrations, live music and refreshments. 745 N.

Fishing R epoRt

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weeklyâ&#x20AC;? Fishing RepoRT FoR Aug. 24, 2011 By: Jim sAnTA


tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s August and that means itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for terrestrials. Hoppers are pretty much every- where around the valley now and they provide a huge plate of protein for trout. Hoppers tend to produce some vicious takes by the biggest fish in the river and we can usually apply a bit heavier tippet when fishing hoppers less we risk breaking them off on the take with an equally vicious set. So wherever youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fishing for the next few weeks, have some hopper patterns with you. The early morning action has been up and down on Silver Creek. Some mornings have been very slow and others very good. Tricos have been the main fare and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been tiny, 22 and 24. Hopper action has been pretty good when the morning hatch subsides. Beetles, ants, and damsels, both nymphs and dries, will be other good options after the morning mayfly action dies down. Look for mayflies and caddis in the evening hour just before sunset. The slightly higher than average flows on the Big Wood have made for decent fishing during what typically becomes a little tougher time of season. The bigger fish are a bit more wary but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beginning to see some of the smaller mayfly hatches in the mornings which should get the fish going. Look to the tailouts and slicks for this surface action. A size 16 dry with a zebra midge trailer is always a good bet in August. The feeding frenzy of the last hour of light is providing the best fishing of the day. Size 1418 X-caddis will provide some nice late evening action. In summary, fishing has remained pretty good in all local waters, get out and enjoy some time on the water and consider booking one of our outstanding guides, we guarantee a good time in a beautiful environment.

man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a feeling of freedom, of independence, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t experience anywhere else. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a feeling of weightlessness, of not being attached to a wheelchair.â&#x20AC;? And Ernie Butler, who once parachuted medical assistance to American troops in Vietnam, was paralyzed in a mid-air collision while competing in France. He emerged from a coma to find his legs tied in traction with shoelaces and milk bottles, but shook off any thought of self-pity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a little daughter and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want her to remember me as a father who used to be fun before he ended up in a wheelchair,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve met people I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have met if I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had my accident. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve traveled places I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have gone, otherwise.â&#x20AC;? These three and two others rallied themselves to meet in the lobby of the Sun Valley Inn at 5:30 each morning, willing to go to the top of Trail Creek or the desert of Arco to test the flying wheelchair. And, like the test pilots in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Right Stuff,â&#x20AC;? they dismissed the risks, even taking a few spills on the rocky mountaintop when the wind proved too light to lift the chair and two riders off the mountain. Veteran paragliders like

Chuck Smith of Fly Sun Valley conducted ground school each day, coaching the would-be pilots in airflow and micrometeorology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prepare your flight plan from the launch through the landing,â&#x20AC;? Greece told them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Visualize your line. Map it out. And plan for exits. I always leave myself an escape route in case I hit bad turbulence.â&#x20AC;? Pilots pushed the chairs across the ground, while other pilots ran backwards, allowing the would-be pilots to mirror their movements on the controls. They pulled the veterans across Trail Creek Summit with a Honda scooter to test the chairsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; usefulness in places like Kansas where donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a mountain to jump off. And they launched the chairs off Baldy as a team of reporters and photographers for the New York Times chronicled their odyssey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paragliding is amazing,â&#x20AC;? said Butler, CEO of the Seattle chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can stay up so long. The parachutes I flew were deceleration devices. This is a flying machine.â&#x20AC;? Chuck Smith has flown disabled individuals by strapping tires underneath them to cush-

ion the landing. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s watched Gaskill take the chair design from something that resembled a baby crib to the buggy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a work in progressâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned a lot even this week. But I do like the buggy better than using tires,â&#x20AC;? he said. Kubacz said the highlight of the three days for him was cruising thousands of feet above the valley with two osprey while the wind blowing over the wings made a beautiful melody. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like slipping through the air,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had expected to have to crank my body to make a turn. But you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to.â&#x20AC;? Erik Burmeister, of Williamsport, Pa., said he appreciated the opportunity to make history by participating in the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effortless to move in the air. It takes a lot of work to move on the ground,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And flying tandem is fun, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty much dead weight when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a passenger. I want to be in control. And I want to take other people tandem because no one done it before. I want to push limits, do the impossible. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the benefits of being paralyzed. There are all kinds of ways to be an inspiration.â&#x20AC;? tws

briefs Geology talk Friday

Geology Professor Glenn Thackray, of Idaho State University, will speak this Friday, Aug. 26 at 5 p.m. at the Stanley Museum, and again at 8 p.m. at the Redfish Center. Originally from the Midwest, Dr. Thackray did as most geologists do and “came west” where the geology is more visible and active. His teaching and research specialties focus on Earth surface processes, including glaciers, landslides, rivers and earthquake faulting. He has conducted research in the Sawtooth Mountains and elsewhere in Idaho for more than a decade. The geologic history of the Sawtooth Mountains and the rest of central Idaho is long, varied, and exciting, featuring ocean sediments, volcanic rocks, earthquakes, mountain uplift, granites galore, and intensive recent glaciation. Thackray will explore the crystallization and uplift of granites that make up much of the Sawtooth Mountains, the glaciers that have sculpted the range and the valley, and the history of the recently discovered earthquake fault and its effects on Redfish Lake.

The Days of Reckoning By BALI SZABO


his isn’t about the budget/debt crisis of Western civilization, although the way I approach a project like the Habitat is relevant to our national quandary and the way we approach social problems. If I were as partisan in my evaluation of the garden as the current political climate of crisis, this place would be a wreck. I would have to have a sign: “Abandon all hope ye who enter here.” In the coming weeks, as summer’s seductive splendor passes, the conversation changes to changes. Each year has been better than the last so far, but that will not continue automatically. It’s time to scrutinize every plot. It’s a merciless task, as one moves from congratulation to criticism. Signs of neglect, mistakes and laziness are evident, as are the more dominant signs of effort. If I didn’t reassess objectively every year, I’d be living off the laurels of the past, while the future beckons change. Because one’s own motives are not suspect, self-criticism is easier to accept than that from others. With time, I’ve developed a feel that’s bolstered by experience, and so it’s not reliant upon pure instinct. As with gambling, we remember when a hunch works and conveniently forget when it does not. The plants have taught me a lot. There’s less trial and error. I know what will work where, and why. Much of what I have to correct stems from past inexperience, and the hand I was dealt. A corner of the Habitat is a former semi-industrial site. There was a water-

pumping station here, and the old canal. There’s a lot of cracked gravel fill. A certain malevolence lingers here, as if chemicals were spilled into the soil. Last week I mentioned that an indice of health is how many things grow here, but these patches of soil resist cultivation, which sifting and amendments haven’t overcome. I just have to keep fighting, adding more manure and peat, but no compost. Much of the Habitat is compost-free. By and large, only the royalty get treated with it—the roses, the lilies, the peonies and the shade garden. Your own kitchen scrap compost is superior to commercial, especially if you layer it with some Hailey backyard chicken manure. Any gardener knows that spring and fall are the work seasons. We have it easy. Farmers have to work year-round. Procrastination is king. To echo a beloved Washington phrase and tactic much in use these days, “Kick the can down the road.” There’s lots of time next spring. When it arrives, there’s too much to do. The work debt, like the national debt, grows. But these similarities do end. Analogies do break down. Here, I am the voter, the politician and the press, and there are no elections. I can choose not to kid myself without repercussions. That’s not so easy in politics. So the next time you see a pol’s lips move, and you exclaim, “Are you kidding me?!” his only answer is, “Absolutely. Isn’t that what you tws wanted?”

Green Banded Lily Back-to-School Savings By KAREN BOSSICK

& have we got a deal for you!


he sego—or mariposa—lily blankets many of the foothills around Sun Valley each summer with its dark purple spots on white petals. But an even more beautiful cousin—the green-banded mariposa lily, or tulip—has recently lined the trails around Greenhorn Gulch and other popular hiking venues. It features three petals and three sepals and it ranges from solid white to a pale pink to lavender. Its name comes from its distinctive green band.

This Lemonadeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for a Cause By RIAN ERVIN


emonade stands are often a welcome sight during the hot days of late summer. When kids are looking for afternoon entertainment or a way to make a few extra dollars, I am always happy to shell out my spare change in return for a big smile and a sweet, refreshing drink. This summer, however, I was pleasantly surprised to discover an entirely new variety of lemonade stand; instead of aiming toward personal profit, one child was setting his goal much higher. After seeing an article in USA Today about a young boy donating his allowance of three years to assist in relief efforts for starvation in Somalia, sevenyear-old Dakota Countryman

of Hailey was inspired to open a lemonade stand to help raise donations. Countrymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stand is set up on the corner of 4th Avenue and Roberta McKercher Park, where a large stuffed teddy bear welcomes customers. In his first day of business, Countryman already raised $27 and he says that people have been stopping by often. Countryman is determined to keep his lemonade stand open throughout the rest of the summer. When he returns to school in the fall, entering second grade, he is also planning to set up donation jars around school. Countrymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to this important cause is truly inspiring and he sets a great example to our community. Be sure to stop by his stand before summer tws is over!

The Community Library Enters Frommer Contest By KAREN BOSSICK


he Community Library has a revolving door of illustrious guest speakers, garnering as many as 80 people at year to talk about any subject from silverback gorillas to the Mafia. Now, the library staff wants to bring travel gurus Arthur and Pauline Frommer to the library. But they need your help to do it. They’re participating in Frommer’s 2011 Library Display Contest. And the winner will get not only a travel talk by the Frommers plus 50 Frommer’s travel guidebooks. Librarians dug up a cardboard taxi they’d used in a Moveable Feast fundraiser. And Children’s Librarian Diane Dick capped it with the title “Frommer Roamer,” gave it an Idaho Gems license plate, painted The Community Library logo on the door and stashed Frommer travel guides on the dashboard. Then librarians set a travel trunk topped with travel guides nearby. They’d like members of the community to drop by the reference section and get their picture taken with the car and share a travel story or two that will be used in their contest entry. “What instigated this was that we moved our travel section to

the reference library,” said Reference Librarian Buffy McDonald. “The travel guides are still circulating—people can check them out. But we have so many travelers in this community that we thought that was a good way to give the travel section its own focus. And we want people to know that’s where they’ll find the guides.” Entries and photos must be received by Sept. 1. So don’t tarry in your travels if you want to help. tws

briefs Plein Air Painters of Idaho Paint-Out The Plein Air Painters of Idaho (PAPI) will hold its much anticipated 8th Annual Redfish Plein Air Paint-Out starting Tuesday, Aug. 30 and finishing with an exhibition on Thursday, Sept. 1 at Redfish Lake Lodge. Once again, both professional and amateur members of the Plein Air Painters of Idaho will gather for three days of plein air, on-location painting. The public is warmly welcomed to come throughout the three days to observe the artists, coming from all parts of Idaho, set up their easels around Redfish and throughout the Sawtooth Valley to capture the early autumn colors in compositions painted in oils, acrylics and watercolors from early dawn to dusk.

The Redfish Paint-Out concludes with a lovely exhibition and reception held on Thursday, Sept. 1 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the artists’ tent next to Redfish Lake Lodge.

Spiritual Matters and Core Belief Systems, topics this week In spite of what mom taught about bringing up race, politics or religion in polite conversation, spiritual matters and core belief systems will be regular topics of conversation this week. Expect heated debate. Mercury, the minister of communication, and Neptune, chancellor of dreams, will play an unusually long game of cosmic tug-of-war. This dynamic will last through Saturday. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll have the chance to right a past wrong. This opportunity begins with an emotional link between something that happens this week and something that happened when you were small. This connection may occur deep, deep within the shadowed recesses of your mind, and yet it will shape your behavior. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can’t grow your talent or intelligence by willing it to expand. Determine a logical

direction, and then do the work. You have been worrying too much about whether you’re doing things “right” and what results you’ll get. If you put in the work, with as little emotion and doubt as possible, everything works out. Have faith. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You let yourself do what you feel like doing instead of forcing things along. You’ll have the overwhelming sense that things are happening in the best way possible to serve your interests. It’s simply unnecessary to exert your will at every juncture. Your senses are tuned to gently find the path of least resistance. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are elements of your life you simply can’t change right now. You will someday be able to overcome these obstacles -- just not yet. While you wait for an opportunity to take back control, work on your way of thinking about these parts of your reality. Your thinking will count more than anything else. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are passionate about what you believe. You also are passion-

ate about human rights, which include the rights of others to believe differently from the way you do. Therefore, you resist trying to persuade anyone with rhetoric, reason or any tool other than your own living, shining, thriving example. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll spend greater amounts of time with someone you are close to and will realize just how unique you are. The truth is you could go to the same places, see the same things, read the same literature and eat the same food - and you still would be different from each other. The other person will celebrate your originality. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s something, or more likely someone, you have to deal with directly. Avoidance won’t work, and resistance will prove futile. However, you could outsmart the situation. Try treating a problem as if it were an advantage, and suddenly you will actually see the advantage that is truly there. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s trouble to be sorted

out. You’ll hear many assessments and opinions about what should be done. Try to forget all you’ve heard, though. If you can approach without preconceived opinions and prejudice, you’ll be the one to see the brilliant answer that everyone else is missing, and you’ll apply it well. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Take a break from the job of comparing and contrasting your natural gifts with the gifts of those around you. When your mind and heart are fully expanded, there is no such thing as “better than” or “less than.” Everyone is equal and different. It’s all a matter of finding the best fit for you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be eager to grow your mind, and teachers show up to help. Be patient. Your education will not happen overnight. Sometimes it will feel as though all you’ve learned is that you don’t know anything about a particular area of study. That’s a start. You have to know where the holes are before you can fill them in. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.

movie review

18). Creativity isn’t always easy. Being a creative person means you are willing to risk playing the fool, being wrong, appearing silly, inciting laughter and enduring the bewildered silence of those who just don’t get you. This takes courage. Your daring will pay off and lead to solutions both beautiful and practical. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A certain difficulty may seem important, but it won’t last. Instead of trying to make it better, consider moving away from the issue and dismissing it altogether for a while. Without your involvement, it will recede with the tides, swept into another realm of responsibility, proving it was never really yours to solve. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You know who you are, and your comfort level, confidence and self-appreciation is ever-increasing. Because of this, you are able to play with and control people’s perceptions of you. You’ll gain attention for your talents in September. A relationship takes a fun turn in October. tws

The Change-Up offers the Ol’ Switcheroo By JONATHAN KANE


n the new raunchy comedy The Change-Up, we are presented for maybe the eighth time with the plot line of two people switching bodies. Nothing could be further proof that Hollywood is bankrupt for ideas.

But as one of the stars, Jason Bateman, said while promoting the film, “this is the R-rated version.” If that’s what floats your boat, so be it — but it doesn’t make up for the lack of originality. It’s not that the movie’s so bad—although hardly hilarious—but it’s not great either. I

guess it’s just a decent way to spend two hours in an air-conditioned theater like many of the so-so movies this summer. The picture opens with one of the most disgusting scenes in movie history and that pretty much sets the tone. The story is pretty simple. Old friends Bateman and Ryan Reynolds get together for a night of heavy drinking. Bateman is a very successful type-A lawyer who loves his wife and kids but maybe his career more. Reynolds is a potsmoking, hedonistic, wannabe actor who can’t seem to grow up. To end their night, they pee into a fountain and simultaneously say that they wish they had each other’s lives. Presto—the change occurs and both men are thrown into the deep end. The best part of the movie is that both discover

Jon rated this movie

things about themselves when the other characters reveal how they really feel, thinking they are speaking to the other person. At the end, they find the missing fountain and, doing the deed again, magically transform and change bodies again. Both Reynolds and Bateman do a good job pulling off the switch as they are both pretty talented actors. Olivia Wilde does an excellent job being beautiful as Bateman’s associate. Tried and tried again, The Change-Up offers middling entertainment. tws

Romeo and Juliet Concludes

Sudoku: Gold




answers on page 13

t’s undoubtedly the bestknown love story in the world. But “Romeo and Juliet” is a tale worth repeating—if only to remind ourselves how different the world could be if each of us were less quick to take up the sword and more willing to live and let live. “The world is struggling with decency and kindness. We struggle because people won’t let us be all we can be,” said Jamey Reynolds, who plays the patriarch of the Montagues in the play. “The love between Romeo and Juliet is very beautiful and innocent and look what we did to them.” The Sun Valley Shakespeare Festival will continue with its open-air presentation of “Romeo and Juliet” Thursday through Sunday in its own Globe Theatre at Ketchum’s Forest Service Park. It is the first tragedy the Sun Valley Shakespeare Festival has presented in its decade-long existence. But it features plenty of laughs for those who can’t get enough of the Bard’s wit. The story revolves around young Romeo who, desperate and broken over unrequited infatuation, finds himself born again over his newfound love for young Juliet. The only catch: she’s the daughter of the hated Capulet family. And, no, even Juliet’s mom isn’t above brawling with Romeo’s Montague clan. A sword fight with Juliet’s hotheaded clansman Tybalt transpires. And Romeo and

What: Romeo and Juliet When: 6 p.m. Thursday through Sunday Where: Ketchum’s Forest Service Park, First and Washington streets. Tickets: $20, available at 208726-9124 or at Forest Service Park each night before the performance. Children 12 and under will be admitted free, thanks to the nexStage Theatre’s outreach program, the sponsorship of local businesses and the Idaho Commission for the Arts, which is helping to underwrite the program. What’s more: picnics, blankets and low chairs are welcome for those who do not wish to sit on the bleachers.

Juliet’s pure, innocent love is headed for doom. They’re unable to shuck their violent culture in physicality, even though they can certainly thumb their noses at it in spirit. Director K.O. Ogilvie, who has done a solid job in directing her first Shakespeare play, opted to keep the play true to period. That’s something Kevin Wade, who plays Romeo, appreciates. “I’m loving that we’re really allowing ourselves to portray the honesty of this text—and it’s easy not to,” he said. The production makes use of the Valley’s vast talent of youth, including Stephanie Sloan and Sam Farnham. And they rise to the occasion, with Cameron Rendahl, Dawson Howard and Kevin Wade turning in some believable sword play choreographed by College of Idaho Professor Joe Golden.

Scott Creighton turns up the laugh-ometer through his portrayal of Friar Laurence before the play takes a tragic turn.

Kevin Wade, a Community School and Tisch School of the Arts graduate, offers a nice performance of an oft-brooding Romeo. And high school junior Jacqueline King presents an earnest, heartfelt portrayal of a young Juliet being buffeted about with powerful emotions she’s never known before. But the show stealers are Scott Creighton and Jana Arnold in their role of Friar Laurence and Juliet’s ditzy nurse. These two veterans actors know how to create memorable, often humorous, characters. And they do that here, without denying the classic’s humanity in folly. “ ‘Romeo and Juliet’ has been done so many times—they’re even coming out with a new movie,” King observed. “But the emotions in it are so strong. It’s timeless.” tws

n the United States, water use averages 100150 gallons per capita per day. In Blaine County, we hate to be average; consequently, we each use around 700 gallons of water per day. This is pretty embarrassing! To send less of this liquid gold down the drain, try these tips. Turn off the tap while brushing your teeth or shaving, and save around 200 gallons of water per month. A five-minute shower takes 25-30 gallons. Could you cut yours down to five minutes, or even less? Or install a flowrestricted showerhead? A load of clothes takes 50 gallons to wash; a high-efficiency washing machine saves half that. Washing only full loads saves more. Washing dishes with the tap open will use about 40 gallons; using the stopper will save half. The dishwasher can save water, but break the pre-rinsing habit. It’s more efficient to wash the car at a commercial facility. If you must wash it at home, park the car on the lawn first. Flushing the toilet takes two to seven gallons of water. If you aren’t willing to “if it’s yellow, let it mellow,” then replace yours with a more efficient toilet. Even 100 gallons per person is a luxury compared to the rest of the world.

Making Sense of Long-Term Care By MICHELLE SANDOZ


f you’re like most people, you’ve heard of long-term care. And, like most people, you might not really understand how it factors into your retirement. Unfortunately, this is one instance when what you don’t know could hurt you. The risk of needing long-term care is real. It’s also something that most people try to put off thinking about until it’s too late. Basically, long-term care is necessary when you have difficulty caring for yourself. If you’ve ever cared for an aging parent or loved one, you’ve seen how frustrating it is to no longer be able to do things you’ve always taken for granted. But the big question is who pays the costs for long-term care? In most instances, the answer is not the government. They recently rolled out a nationwide long-term care awareness program called “Own Your Future” which encourages people to better understand and plan for long-term care. In fact, Congress has tightened the financial requirements to qualify for Medicaid, the federally- and state-funded program for those who live at or below the poverty level. And Medicare is designed to cover acute illnesses like hospital stays but not longterm care. It’s clear that the average person will be responsible for covering long-term care expenses privately. But, according to a Prudential 2010 – Long-Term Care Cost Study, the average cost of long-term care is over $90,000 annually. Will you be able to self-fund care for yourself or your spouse? Coming up with that kind of money might prove difficult for many people. Fortunately, many insurance carriers are offering insurance plans developed specifically to cover the costs of long-term care. But with so many plans out there, how do you choose the one that’s right for you? The easiest way is to start with the basics. Long-term care insurance pays benefits when you require services covered under the policy. However, most plans have an



offeemaker Liz Roquet and her friends traded Roquet’s espresso cups for Russian vodka shot glasses Thursday night. Their short course in Russian Drinks 101 taught them to “drink the vodka down in one,” breathe in through the mouth at conclusion, use black bread on their tongue to enhance the experience and to try not to cough. And, ahem, avoid falling into snow banks and freezing. Roquet didn’t have to worry about snow banks Thursday night as she bellied up to the Russian vodka booth at the Ketchum Town Plaza. But she hopes the money she laid down for the experience will go towards helping a handful of Sun Valley youngsters spend their 2014 winter skiing and boarding in the snow banks of Sochi, Russia, as members of the U.S. Olympic team. Hundreds of people turned out Thursday night to take part in the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s 6 at Sochi fundraiser. They ate sliders and other goodies served up by local eateries, dunked Ski Education Foundation coaches like Kelly Sinnott in a pool full of water, listened to music and learned Russian toasts at the Budem vodka bar.

TOP: Alla Maumus and Michelle Griffith spent Thursday evening pouring Russian vodka to raise funds to help the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation send at least six athletes to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. ABOVE: Kelly Sinnott eggs on youngsters she’s coached in cross-country skiing as she sits atop a dunk tank.

“Za Vas” means “To you” and “Na Zdorov’ye,” “To your health.” Alla Maumus, who grew up in Moscow and has lived here for five years, served up the vodka experience with Michelle Griffith, who lived in the Soviet Union for 10 years while her husband Harry worked for British Petroleum. Don Wiseman, executive director of the ski foundation, concurred, as he scanned the crowd: “This is what tws community’s all about.”

elimination or waiting period (think of this as a policy deductible) that must be satisfied before they’ll begin to pay. You choose the elimination period based on how much out-of-pocket expense you can afford. The shorter the elimination period you select, the higher the premium and the smaller your out-of-pocket expenses will be when you actually need care. Many policies offer choices from 0-180 days; in some states even longer. The next factor is how much you will need each day for care. If care in your area is around $200 a day and you think you can fund about $50 of that, choose a daily benefit of $150. And remember to consider inflation. With long-term care expenses rising continuously, you will want to add a rider that automatically increases your daily benefit by a certain percentage each year. It’s also important to consider where you want to receive care. Most policies pay for care whether it is received at home, in a nursing home or in an assisted living facility. And while you might need to go to a facility eventually, most of us want to stay home as long as we can. With all of the choices out there, it helps to consult a long-term care specialist before making any decisions. Your long-term care specialist has the training and experience to help you determine if long-term care insurance is right for you and make sure you get the benefits you need, so you don’t have to settle for a plan that wasn’t designed for you. A specialist will also have access to several companies, so he or she can help you understand the differences in policy offerings, pricing, and underwriting. Be sure to utilize this expertise to make an educated decision about whether tws long-term care is right for you.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, Help! I'm finally moving across the country. I've packed all of my stuff and hired a moving company to pick it up. The only thing left is my pet turtle, Bob. I've had him for almost five years and I don't know how to get him from Colorado to Connecticut. He can survive up to a week without food or water, but he has a terrible habit of peeing when he's scared. I used to just put him in my pocket when I flew, but with today's security, I'm afraid I'd be the one picked out for a search. I can only imagine Bob being detained by airport security. I was wondering if I could convince the moving guys to keep him in the front seat with them during the trip. It's not like he'd be much trouble.

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ Carry: The moving guys may not mind as long as Bob doesn't keep asking to stop and use the restrooms! Cash: Most moving companies try to work with their customers, so it never hurts to ask. However, before you impose upon the drivers, we have a few other suggestions that may work for your

Carry: Generally speaking, tur-

tles are among the easiest pets to move. Most animals need to travel in special pet carriers and fly in the cargo section of planes. Turtles, however, can sometimes get a first class ride. Cash: Check with your airline about taking Bob on the plane with you. I'm sure they won't recommend putting him in your pocket, especially considering his nervous habit, but some airlines may permit him to travel onboard with you. They typically request that a turtle travel in a small pet carrier that can fit under your seat. Carry: If you find that bringing

Bob on the plane doesn't work out, you can always ship him overnight to Connecticut. It's not a joke. Believe it or not, using an overnight carrier is one of the easiest ways to transport turtles. Cash: To ensure a safe trip, pack your turtle in a well-cushioned Styrofoam box with air holes and line it with soft grass or leaves. The box should be large enough for him to extend his legs and head. Include a damp cloth for moisture, and write "This Side Up" and "Fragile, Live Animal" on the box. Carry: For Bob, it's a first class trip and he won't have to check his luggage at the airport.

If you haven't seen baby turtles in the pet store lately, we're not surprised. Since 1975, The US Food and Drug Administration has banned the sale of most baby turtles. Medical research found that some baby pet turtles carried the bacteria that caused salmonella poisoning. In an attempt to curtail children from becoming infected, a federal regulation was passed to ban the sale of turtle eggs and turtles under four inches long.

It Takes All Kinds

All turtles are created equal. Well, not necessarily. Today, there are over 250 species of turtles, each one different from the next. One freshwater species that lives here in North America can outrun a human being on level ground. Another species, the Leatherback Sea Turtle, which breed in the Florida region, can grow up to eight feet long and weigh as much as two thousand pounds. Those may be a bit large for your home aquarium. â&#x20AC;˘


Two weeks ago while on a camping vacation, my eightyear-old son caught a small turtle and decided to keep it. Since then, he's been obsessed with "Harry the Turtle", taking it everywhere we go. The other day when we went to the auto store, I insisted he leave it at home in the tank. However, that didn't stop him from going on and on about Harry. Even while we walked around the store, he wondered what else his turtle needed to be happy. It came to him while we were standing in the checkout line. With a tug of my shirt, he looked up at me and said, "Dad, can we buy Harry this turtle wax?" (Thanks to Henry S.)

Richard Wald Touts Politics’ Entertainment Value By KAREN BOSSICK


o the sound bites coming from the current presidential hopefuls have your knickers in a knot? Just laugh it off and lump that TV coverage in with your favorite sitcom. We underestimate the continual entertainment value of presidential and congressional campaigns, says Richard C. Wald, former NBC and ABC news executive. “I think candidates should entertain us,” said Wald. “They certainly cost us a fortune.” Wald, a current Columbia University journalism professor, was among the speakers at the four-day Sun Valley Writers’ Conference, which ended Monday. He took a few minutes to talk about newspapers and TV coverage just before heading up in Sun Valley’s gondola Friday morning. Wald says the attention reporters have paid to the alwaysentertaining Sarah Palin, even though she has not announced her candidacy, is not new. Political candidates and their ilk have long been a source of entertainment paired with parades and bonfires that accompanied their talks. “The Lincoln-Douglas debate was set up to entertain people,” he said. “That was how you spent an evening in those days. The debate had content, but it also had entertainment value.” The difference between then and now, Wald said, is that we have a 24-hour news cycle where stuff is always coming at viewers. And the miniaturization of machinery used to capture what people say is in everyone’s hands. So the minute a candidate slips up, it’s spread around the world. Wald said he yawned at the first reports of hacking by the British press. “There’s a great tradition in Britain of sleazy reporting. In fact, I thought it was kind

That’s not all she wrote... It was obvious to Isabel Wilkerson that few African-Americans had migrated to Sun Valley in the great migration north as she looked over the crowd gathered at the Ketchum Town Plaza Thursday night. But there was something going on there that wouldn’t have happened if it had not been for the migration of blacks between 1915 and the 1970s. Find out what that is in next week’s Weekly Sun when Karen Bossick interviews the author of “The Warm of Other Suns.” There will also be more on the Conference, including Sound Bites.

of weird that they resorted to hacking because they don’t need to—newspapers in Britain are not above making stuff up.” But revelations that a whole business enterprise may be based around hacking caught Wald’s attention. “In a democracy, we have to worry about how people make decisions, and they make decisions based on information. If that information has been obtained dishonestly or subordinated the police, you have a real problem. I doubt anything like that could happen in America because competition among our news organizations has always been to reach the top of the mountain, not debase it.” Wald said he believes there will always be a place for newsprint in communities like Sun Valley because people want to know details about what’s going on and the best way to do that is in print. Regional and national papers may fare less well, due to the immediacy of the Internet and TV. “But one thing papers have that the Internet can’t supply is serendipity. Digital information is like getting an a la carte dish—you get what you ask for. Newspapers offer a buffet table—you often find other things that interest you as you look over the buffet that you wouldn’t have known about otherwise. It’s like college—it broadens you.” tws

Obama’s Vacation Reading List Mirrors Writers Conference List By KAREN BOSSICK


resident Obama is spending his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard. But he might have done better spending it at the Sun Valley’s Writers Conference. The President took three books with him on his vacation—Isabel Wilkerson’s “The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration,” David Grossman’s “To the End of the Land” and Abraham Verghese’s “Cutting for Stone.” And all three authors were represented at the Sun Valley Writers Conference this past weekend. tws

briefs SNRA History

Orval Howard Hansen, who served in the United States House of Representatives from 1969 to 1975, representing Idaho’s Second Congressional District, will give his first-hand account of how the Sawtooth National Recreation Area (SNRA) was founded. This lecture is co-sponsored by the Stanley Community Library and the Sawtooth Interpretative and Historical Association, and will be held at the Community Center on Highway 21 in Stanley, beginning at 5 p.m. today, Aug. 24. Hansen’s political career began in the Idaho House of Representatives, where he served four terms, beginning in 1956. He served as House Majority Leader from 1961 to 1962. His first run for Congress in 1962 was unsuccessful, and he returned to the Idaho House of Representatives for another two-year term, followed by one term in the Idaho State Senate. He ran again for Congress and was elected as a Republican in 1968, serving three terms. Following his service in Congress, Hansen returned to private law practice. In 1977, he founded the Columbia Institute for Political Research.
