Wagon Days Jam Packed from Rodeo to Duck Race

Teitge’s Creativ ty


p to 17,000 people are expected to flock to Ketchum this weekend for the 45th Big Hitch Parade on Saturday. And one thing they can practically count on is not having any wet stuff, even though locals wouldn’t mind getting a little rain or snow to douse wildfires to the south and north. “We’ve had only one major rain and a couple of sprinkles in 54 years,” said organizer Heather LaMonica Deckard. This year’s Big Hitch Parade, which starts at 1 p.m. Saturday, will feature a number of interesting entries, including 12 mini-mules pulling a miniature wagon and a plethora of historic wagons. Ralphie the Mongolian camel, who made his debut last year, will be back with his roommate—a bison—alongside. And the historic Lewis Ore Wagons pulled by an authentic 20-mule jerk line reminiscent of the Borax wagon teams will bring up the rear. “The parade draws a huge, huge crowd and I like the idea that everything is horse drawn or on horseback. That 20-mule team they have to pull the ore wagons is marvelous to watch,” said Penny Hodges, a Buhl woman who will drive a “people puller,” which she takes camping in the Stanley Basin and Smiley Creek area. “It opens, and both sides roll up,” said Hodges, who is pastor of the Methodist church in Buhl. “It’s neat because you have all the conveniences of home. You have a bed—you’re not sleeping on the ground. You can close it in like a sheep wagon—I’ve insulated it with half-inch-thick insulation. It even has a porta-potty and, at my age, that’s pretty important at night.” This year’s Wagon Days Labor Day celebration is packed with events, including the National Finals Rodeo, the Great Wagon Days Duck Race and a classic car auction. Here’s what’s on tap:

om Teitge can’t help but draw comparisons to the eccentric professor in “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” Like that professor, he has surrounded his Hailey home with a slew of intriguing inventions. Among them: an iron butterfly with doorknob antennas and a bicycle chassis that hovers above the door to his workshop; a Model of the Universe gazebo, which sports the constellations on the ceiling of its blue dome; and an eagle-eyed mask crafted out of sculpted steel and lawnmower engines that guards the northwest corner of his roof like a figurehead on the bow of a ship. Teitge’s “Swords into Plowshares” mural—one of several that he’s painted in the Valley over the years—graces the P.M. Brown building on River Street in Hailey. And he’s penned a kaleidoscope of posters for the Northern Rockies Folk Festival, as well as logos for the City of Hailey and Blaine County. Now, for the first time, Teitge has been chosen as the artist for the commemorative Wagon Days poster. “It’s a piece that most local residents will recognize,” said Wagon Days organizer Heather LaMonica Deckard. “It’s ‘White Knuckle,’ a piece of art that has hung in Atkinsons’ Market in Ketchum as long as I can remember.” “White Knuckle,” a work of historical realism, depicts men trying to brake the Big Hitch ore wagons for which the Wagon Days parade is named on the steep, winding road from Boulder City. One man is pulling the brake for all he’s worth;

another is trying to slow the wagons by pulling on a rope wrapped around trees. “I’d rather starve to death than be bored to death,” said Teitge. “Hence, I focus on unusual things that are of great interest to me.” Teitge, who came to Sun Valley to ski 35 years ago, has lived by the motto “Don’t Fence Me In” since a young child growing up in Tacoma, Wash. He started his art career by copying Donald Duck comics, a practice which segued into drawings of warplanes, watercolor portraits, realistic paintings and, finally, comic book-like and real-abstract artwork influenced by the psychedelic poster art he saw in San Francisco during the Sixties. “Posters are my favorite things to do because you have a clear sense of what you’re supposed to convey. And, I’ve always had a love affair with the form of letters,” said Teitge, who studied molecular biology at Stanford University. Just as his drawing took on many forms, so did his three-dimensional work. Model airplanes gave way to modifying cars and boat building as he helped his father—an airline pilot and machinist—build a wooden boat in their yard. And building forts in the woods around his home gave way to building homes out of wood and steel parts he salvaged from demolition projects. Teitge has built six houses from recycled material, including a solar home in Hailey and homes on Kauai, Vashon Island and the Columbia Gorge.

CALLING ALL VENDORS FOOD, CRAFTS, ORGANIZATIONS, PRODUCE We are having an Outdoor Open Market with Wine Garden during our 3rd Annual 5K Fun Run on Sept. 15. Booths will set up on the street in front of the Armory and The Connection. There is no cost to vendors but space is limited.

Gwen Thompson and Janet Fulgate are “lifetime” members with more than 10 years of service or membership in The Papoose Club.

Papoose Club Makes a Breakfast to Flip Over STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


apoose Club members are gearing up to crack 250 dozen eggs, fry up 30 cases of sausage, slice up two shopping carts full of cantaloupe and pour 14 cases of pancake mix as they get ready for their annual Wagon Days Pancake Breakfast this weekend. The 35th annual all-youcan-eat breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday at Ketchum Town Square will include all that with juice, Starbucks coffee and live music by the Idaho Old-Time Fiddlers. “It’s THE way to start your Wagon Days weekend,” said Papoose Club member Danni Dean. The breakfast costs $8 for adults, $7 for seniors and teens and $5 for kids. Children under 3 are free. In the past year alone, The Papoose Club has donated more than $30,000 to 29 organizations serving the educational, physical and cultural needs of kids in the Wood River Valley, with most of the money coming from the breakfast and the club’s Holiday Bazaar in December. They’ve helped pay for student matinee scholarships for plays offered by Company of Fools, equipment for the after-school robotics club at Wood River Middle School, the infant formula program at The Hunger Coalition, young child literacy programs at Bellevue Public Library, tuition scholarships for families in need for the Big Wood School, gym equipment for Bellevue Elementary School and summer camp scholarships for kids who couldn’t otherwise afford to participate in the Y’s programs, among other things. Alice Schernthanner, who passed away earlier this summer, recalled how she and a number of friends started The Papoose Club as a babysitting organization nearly 70 years ago. Mothers would take turns watching one another’s kids so

that the moms could go skiing. “I didn’t have any problem skiing with my children in a backpack. But some people thought it was child abuse,” Schernthanner recalled during an interview celebrating her admittance into the Blaine County Heritage Court a few years ago. In time, the moms began teaching the kids how to ski, organizing the Kindercup race for young ‘uns at the end of the season. And then they began flipping pancakes and serving up soup to raise money for playground equipment and other needs. Rose Burbank joined the club in 2001, shortly after moving here from California. “I saw the line for the pancake breakfast and I noticed all the very smiley, happy people. Everybody seemed so friendly,” she said. “What I like is how every bit of the money they raise goes to kids’ organizations. I love the kids—I’m all for anything we can do to help kids in the valley.” The Papoose Club got a threefor-one when Burbank joined. She involved her daughters, then 9 and 15, from the get-go. Lauren, now 26, joined the club a few years ago and stays involved even though she lives in Boise. Erin, now 20, joined when she came of age, as well. They’ve helped their mom round up volunteers, set up the breakfast area and clean up. And they’ve learned a few secrets about making the perfect pancake batter. “The biggest thing is don’t put too much oil on the grills,” Burbank said. The breakfast usually attracts about 1,600 people over two days, Burbank said. “We’re always hoping for larger numbers, though,” she said. “We have enough for everyone. Come one, come all!” For more information call 208726-6642 or go to papooseclub@ tws

Steve Johnston • 208-309-1088


ung Liu grew up in Maoist China, coming of age during China’s Cultural Revolution. But she has created an impressive portfolio of work featuring Idaho’s best-known Chinese woman—Polly Bemis, a slave girl who was won in a bet by an Idaho miner and eventually became the fodder for a book and movie titled “Thousand Pieces of Gold.” A few of those beautiful oilon-canvas portraits are among several Hung Liu pieces currently on display at Gail Severn Gallery, 400 1st Ave. N. The paintings include one of Polly with a horse and border collie, another with a chicken in her beloved garden along the Salmon River and still another with a horse and a traditional Chinese seraph in the background. Liu paints from historical photographs and creates several layers with resin on top so they look as if they’re floating above each other, noted gallery owner Gail Severn. Liu uses washes and drips to dissolve the photo-based images and introduces traditional Chinese painting motifs such as birds, flowers, and stamps in the paintings to evoke a sense of the cultural memory underlying the surfaces of history. The result: social realism versus the socialist realism she was trained in, noted Liu, who was in Sun Valley for the August Gallery Walk and the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference. Severn said she sold so many of Liu’s works this past month that she brought in several more for the Wagon Days Gallery Walk, which will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday. She also has works of Liu that were inspired by other images dating as far back as the 12th century. One woman who went through the Cultural Revolution is horribly crippled by arthritis but smiling, looking forward to spring. “Hung Liu’s idea is that the past informs the present,” said Severn, “…that there’s not really a separation between past and present.”

Liu’s work augments the massive ceramic sculptures of Jun Kaneo, which weigh as much as 3,000 pounds and had to be placed in the gallery with a forklift. Bean Finneran’s gumdrops made by as many as 20,000 hand-rolled clay pieces have been held over. And so have Israeli artist Boaz Vaadia’s sculptures of layered blue stone, which he cuts and chisels away by hand, despite their massiveness.

Tour with Jaquet

Idaho Legislator Wendy Jaquet will lead a free tour during Gallery Walk. The tour meets at the Sun Valley Recreation Center in the Sun Valley Mall at 5 p.m. and hops aboard the free Mountain Rides bus to head to town. The tour will include short meet-and-greets with gallery owners and artists at the different galleries. Some of the things you’ll be able to see on Friday’s Gallery Walk: Gilman Contemporary, 661 Sun Valley Road, will feature Laura Schiff Bean’s paintings of dresses with layered surfaces illustrating the turning points that mark our lives, along with Donna Rosenthal’s sculptural dresses and coats examining the nature of gender roles and social position and Jane Maxwell’s collages exploring the myth of a feminine ideal. Broschofsky Galleries, 360 East Ave., willl feature fine art with a focus on the West, including works by Andy Warhol, Edward S. Curtis and Theodore Villa. The Sun Valley Center for the Arts, Fifth and Washington streets, has an exhibit titled “Making Camp.” Kneeland Gallery, 271 1st Ave. N., is featuring Linda St. Clair’s paintings of animals fueled by her perception of animal attitudes and personalities, as well as Debbie Edgers-Sturges’ documentation of animals in Katmai National Park. Also, Jennifer Lowe’s colorful livestock marker works of her native Montana and Boise artist Carl Rowe’s Idaho landscapes painted in alkyd. tws

Philanthropists Get Honored Tonight

Opening Celebration 5IVSTEBZ "VH QN

This gingerbread-covered house built with money from the Minnie Moore Mine was moved south of Bellevue by horse after mine owner Henry Miller’s wife, Annie, had a spat with neighbors in Bellevue.

t’s been 131 years since a dog chased a badger down a badger hole, inadvertently leading George Moore to a hole full of ore. That hole was the start of the Minnie Moore Mine, the second most successful mine in the Wood River Valley after the Triumph Mine north of Hailey. The site will be on view this weekend when owners Carl and Heather Johnston offer free tours of the Minnie Moore Mine in conjunction with Bellevue’s Labor Day celebration. The tours will be offered at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday. “We’ve been offering tours to third- and fourth-graders from Bellevue Elementary and we’re always getting people driving up asking for tours. So we thought we’d open it up to the public for an organized tour,� said Heather Johnston. About $9 million was taken out of the mine between 1881 and 1905, making it the second most successful mine in the Wood River Valley after the Triumph Mine, which reaped up to $30 million beginning in the 1930s. The first owner, Henry Miller, sent his wife, Annie I. Gallagher, to England to learn to be a lady in a “My Fair Lady�-type story. But he died and his wife lost their money—a sad ending to a Cinderella story, said Tom Blanchard, a Bellevue historian specializing in mining lore. Palmer and Dent—funded by the Bank of England—took over the mine next. It had its own soap operatic conclusion when a disgruntled employee shot

his tyrannical hard-nosed boss in 1889 after finding that boss romancing his wife. The shooter then shot himself in the head on the Main Street of Bellevue but lived to tell his story, Blanchard said. The third owner—Irvin Rockwell—cruised into town with a stunning secretary on his arm, his first wife being institutionalized in Chicago. Both his children later died—one of cholera and one of influenza—during the flu epidemic of 1917. Carl Johnston has lived at the site of the Minnie Moore since he was 2—his father having bought the site in 1975. Heather Johnston, a property researcher, first set eyes on the mine site when her then-19-yearold husband-to-be showed her the mineshaft on their first date. “Everybody who spends time—it becomes the love of their life,� she said. “In its heyday there were 350 people in the town of Broadford. That was their world. When the mine went away, the town went away.� Mining was difficult since water was always accumulating in the underground mine. The Johnston family ran a gravel operation until the recent recession made it unprofitable. Heather Johnston said there’s not a lot left of the old workings—she and her husband removed 30,000 pounds of scrap metal from the mine over a sixyear period and replanted grass on the site. “But we hope we can give a taste of what it was like through pictures and the stories we uncovered in five file cabinets of material,� she said. tws

The Hunger Coalition will honor women in the community who have invested their time or treasure with the organization by hosting a Wine in the Garden event on Wednesday, Aug. 29 at The Hope Garden in downtown Hailey. Members of the Wood River Women’s Charitable Foundation, Little Black Dress Club, The Papoose Club and The Rosies will be in attendance. With the dedication and support of these women’s philanthropic groups, The Hunger Coalition has been able to provide much needed services to the children and families of our community. Wine in the Garden will take place at 6:30 p.m. tonight at The Hope Garden, located at the corner of South 1st Avenue and Walnut Street in downtown Hailey. If you are a member of one of these women’s philanthropic groups and would like to attend, please RSVP by calling 788-0121 or e-mailing

Free Book Reading

Knob Hill Inn, in downtown Ketchum, hosts founder and CEO of Aegis Living, Dwayne J. Clark for a free bookreading of his memoir, My Mother, My Son. The reading is from 6 to 7:30 p.m. today, Aug. 29. Clark’s story is the family’s journey through his mother’s Alzheimer’s disease with resources to support others who are living with Alzheimer’s. All profits from book sales are donated to the Potato Soup Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association. Info: Shannon Allen, 208-726-8010 or

Dr. Acker Awarded

Dr. Randy Acker of Sun Valley Animal Center was the recipient of the 2012 Royal Canine Award at the American Veterinary Medical Association’s annual convention held in San Diego, Calif., this week. The award, recognizing “work in either clinical research or basic sciences‌ contributing significantly to the advancement of the field,â€? was received at the Excellence in Veterinary Medicine Awards and President’s Luncheon. Dr. Acker’s extensive work in canine orthopedic surgery includes the development of a cementless elbow prosthesis, the TATE Elbow System, to alleviate debilitating elbow arthritis in dogs. Dr. Acker teamed up with BioMedtrix, a leader in design and manufacture of veterinary orthopedic implants, to produce this new total arthroplasty of the elbow. Dr. Acker’s interest in orthopedics has led him to two patents and invitations to lecture and instruct KYON THR (total hip replacement) and TATE elbow courses worldwide. Next on his lecture tour will be the KYON THR Practicum, Zurich Cementless THR Oct. 4-5 at the Oquendo Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

he feathers that spill over the Clydesdales’ hooves have become the stuff of fine art this month at Ketchum’s Gallery DeNovo. The gallery at 320 First Ave. N. is showing an exhibition by New York photographer Philip Tsiaras called “The Parade.� Tsiaras attended the Wagon Days parade in 2008 while here for another exhibition of his work. And he was so taken with the parade that he began taking photographs. Not just any photographs, however. Tsiaras focused on the bottom half of the parade, taking pictures of wagon wheels, horses’ hooves and marching band members’ legs. He also focused on a few horses’ manes and the tattooed rumps of Eh-Capa bareback horses. “It’s a contemporary spin on a very traditional theme,� said Gallery DeNovo owner Robin Reiners. “Yet it gives a feeling of

this tradition and how important it is. And it just happened sitting on a sidewalk.� Reiners said she is partial to Wagon Days, having grown up on a Nebraska farm where she drove a stagecoach with eight mules. “My grandfather farmed with mules and my dad loved mules and surreys,� she said. Reiners said Tsiaras would have liked to return for this exhibition but is in Europe for an exhibition touring major European cities. “He’s always said how amazed he is that this community has so many facets, from mining to skiing to ???, and he’s grateful to be part of its art culture,� she said. “And it’s amazing how many friends he meets here—friends he’s gone to school with, friends he’s done business with. There’s just this feeling that Sun Valley is an amazing community.� Tsiaras’ exhibit is on the second floor.

Local Youth Attain National Certifications FOR THE WEEKLY SUN

The United States Pony Clubs, Inc., announces that Augusta Catherin, Payton McCune and Haley Cooper, all of Hailey, passed their “HB� certification at a testing held July 31-August 1 in Jerome. Students at Wood River High School, these three members of the Sawtooth Pony Club, based in Bellevue, each passed a rigorous national examination that tested horsemanship skills and knowledge. Cooper, 17, went on to pass three more national certifications August 14-16 in Kuna. These tests examined Cooper’s ability to ride and train horses in both dressage and eventing disciplines. Now a “B� Pony Clubber, Cooper has achieved an elite level within the horse world. Of over 12,500 Pony Club members nationwide, less than 40 reach the “B� level each year. Each of the Pony Club rating levels is more difficult than the preceding one, and requires members to learn more about horses and their care and to become increasingly accomplished riders and teachers of riding and horse care to younger members. The top rating, ‘A,’ is reached by fewer than

one in 300 and denotes throughout the international horse industry a highly competent and knowledgeable horseperson. Instructor for the Sawtooth Pony Club is Sarah Berkowitz of Bellevue, who can be reached at skep12@ Along with an emphasis on helping its members learn to ride and care for horses, the Pony Club promotes teamwork, a sense of responsibility, safety, good moral judgment and self-confidence. The United States Pony Clubs, Inc. (USPC) was founded in 1954 as a nonprofit national youth organization to teach riding and horsemanship through a formal educational program. Many of the nation’s top equestrians, including most of our Olympic equestrian team members, have Pony Club roots. Members range in age from as young as 4 through age 25. Activities are English-riding based, and members ride both horses and ponies, depending on the size of the rider and the discipline in which s/he is competing. All Pony Club competition is team competition, much like the Olympic games, where members learn the importance of cooperation and teamwork.

ance to the washboard when the Caritas Chorale throws a Bayou Bash. The elite choir will throw a Cajun-themed party at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 9 at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden a few miles south of Ketchum. It’ll kick off with music by the Frogs of the North Zydeco band, which will perform in the old symphony shell outside the greenhouse. There’ll be hors d’oeuvres and a full bar with the spotlight on Hurricanes, a Southern rum punch that goes down easy like a margarita. The chorale will sing a few songs of the South, including “Shrimp Boats,” “Jambalaya” and “Toot Toot.” A buffet of non-spicy Cajun food catered by Judith McQueen will be set up inside the greenhouse. Then choir members will clear out the greenhouse for dancing to Cajun and Zydeco two-step, waltzes and blues. “The band—from Boise—has been together for more than 10

years and they’re really good. Two fiddles, an accordion, a bass and drums,” said Dick Brown. “Cajun music is swamp music from southern Louisiana. Don’t get it mixed up with New Orleans or Dixieland jazz.” This is not a dress-up affair, Brown emphasized. Partygoers are invited to wear whatever the swamp people would wear, from overalls to bluejeans. “I’m going to wear camo. No tuxes—this is the complete opposite of our last party,” he said, referring to last year’s elegant Night in Vienna. “It should be magic—just generally a great party,” said Ted Witt. “In addition to all the party stuff, we’ll raffle off stays in Ann Christensen’s home in Mexico, a condo in Maui, a Stanley cabin, a cabin near Soldier Mountain, a Cajun dinner and a wine-tasting dinner.” This is the chorale’s major fundraiser. Proceeds from the evening will help pay salaries for chorale director Dick Brown and accompanist R.L. Rowsey, as well as orchestra musicians who come from Boise to accompany the

Bonnie Raitt Concert

Six years after a sold-out concert here, Bonnie Raitt returns to Sun Valley with special guest Mavis Staples. The concert, on Thursday evening, August 30 at the Sun Valley Pavilion, is the last in the Sun Valley Center for the Arts Summer Concert Series. Bonnie Raitt is a singer, songwriter and guitarist whose unique style blends blues, R&B, rock and pop. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s 19th album, Slipstream, is daring, bluesy, and steeped with the inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals that could only be hers. Released this past April, Slipstream is Raitt’s first new album in seven years and the debut release for her newly minted label, Redwing Records. Joining Bonnie as a special guest is legendary gospel and R&B singer Mavis Staples, who began her career over 60 years ago, singing with her groundbreaking family group, the Staple Singers. VH1 named her one of the 100 Greatest Women of Rock and Roll, and Rolling Stone listed her as one of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. Tickets for Bonnie Raitt with special guest Mavis Staples are available online at or by phone at 208.726.9491 ext. 10, or stop by The Center in Ketchum.

The Sawtooth Interpretive and Historical Association presents Diane Evans-Mack—�Wolverines and Winter Recreation: Ongoing Research in Central Idaho� this Friday, Aug. 31. The free lectures are at 5 p.m. at the Stanley Museum and 8 p.m. at the Redfish Center. A study to understand the response of wolverines to winter recreation has just completed its third winter field season. The work focused on multiple study areas in central Idaho, including the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. It is using a unique combination of methods to simultaneously collect information on the movements of wolverines and backcountry winter recreationists. While data collection is still ongoing, some results are starting to emerge that begin to give us insights into this elusive creature. For upcoming program details visit or www.

Plein Air Paint-Out

TEITGE’S CREATIVITY, from page 1 One of those six is his own home, which borders the Wood River bike path near Croy Street in Hailey. Teitge built that home from a burned-out husk of a log cabin. He sandblasted the char off the walls and crafted a delightful, if eccentric, home in which one winding staircase leads to the second floor and another leads to an elf-like workshop in the basement. A plethora of intriguing items, from an old typewriter to art made of circuit boards and an anchor crafted by his grandfather, hang on the exterior of the log home. One of the many relief maps he’s made out of plaster of Paris sits at the southwest corner of his gazebo. The shadows falling across the surface mirror those on nearby mountain ridges so Teitge can tell if an area is in shade or sun at any given moment. Marks on the steel walkway in his backyard show where the sun falls at certain times of the year. At the end of the year, the marks will form a figure eight, said Teitge.

Teitge has heard many exclamations of “Cool!” from passersby on the bike path, as well as a few quizzical comments from people wondering if his roof with its unusual angles is about to collapse. The best, he says, came from a little boy whom he overheard asking his mother why someone had built a house like his. “I guess just to show he could,” the mother replied. “Yeah! That’s the right answer,” Teitge said. “I don’t do all this to get attention. I do it because it’s what I want to do and the attention follows.” On paper, Teitge is retired. But that doesn’t stop the 65year-old artist from working from dawn to dusk on projects like a one-man teeter-totter with sliding counterweights where the seat goes up in the air as the rider pedals. “My retirement is my work,” he said. “I can’t turn the ideas off. And there aren’t enough hours in the day or days in the year to create all the ideas. I’ve got enough projects for the next tws hundred years.”

The Plein Air Painters of Idaho (PAPI) will hold its much-anticipated 9th Annual Redfish Plein Air Paint-Out starting Wednesday, Sept. 5 and finishing with an exhibition on Friday, Sept. 7 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 s invited to observe the artists set up their easels around Redfish Lake and throughout the Sawtooth Valley to capture the early autumn colors in compositions painted in oils, acrylics and watercolors from early dawn to dusk. Maps showing where painters will be painting each day will be posted in the artists’ tent next to the Lodge. Times for free artist demonstrations will also be provided at easy-to-reach sites nearby Redfish Lake Lodge for those interested in watching the creation and process of an original painting. The Redfish Plein Air Paint-Out concludes with an exhibition and reception held on Friday, Sept. 7 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the artists’ tent next to Redfish Lake Lodge.

ou might first recognize him by his family moniker; however, Shelton Hank Williams III (aka Hank3) has tucked that flag in his back pocket and proven over and over again that his sweet-sounding talent has legs enough to stand on its own. And listeners can immerse themselves in his musical forte at an upcoming show at Boiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Knitting Factory, this Sunday. Late last year, Hank3 reached an unparalleled music history milestone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he released four albums on one day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not been done by any other artist, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a record for me. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not comparing myself to him as a musician, but the only other person that came close to that was Frank Zappa â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever able to do that because his record company held him back,â&#x20AC;? Hank3 told me. After parting ways with his former record label, and launching his own early last year, the self-demanding work began. The writing process began last January â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he basically worked every day, waking up in the morning and working until he could work no more. Then, in just under nine months, Hank3 produced and eventually released four albums on the same day (Ghost to a Ghost/Guttertown â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a double LP, 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin and Attention Deficit Domination). So I asked him if he had a lot in mind heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been holding back specifically for this moment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just wanted to come out of the gate strong and finally be able to sell a CD at my own show,â&#x20AC;? he admitted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got to sell a CD at my show in over 18 or 19 years. And not having one at the merch booth is a really hard thing to do, when thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bloodline of the road.â&#x20AC;? Let there be no mistake, Hank3â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s country music is not pop, but rather infused with his wayward roots-oriented style, including candid lyrics and multiple layers of elements blended together so well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a symphonic composition. Even the occasional cover songs heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done over the years smack of his rebel style. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the time, when I do a song, I totally change it and a lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like that. You know, they like to hear the same song. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like, well, if you want to hear the same song, listen to the artist that put it out. So, what I did with the Reverend Horton Heat with that Long Lonesome Train â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really upbeat and fast, million-miles-an-hour, good driving song â&#x20AC;&#x201D; well, I played it as slow as possible and sang it in the deepest voice I had.â&#x20AC;? He also said if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever

covering someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s song, he almost always knows the artist on some personal level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a respect thing.â&#x20AC;? My personal favorite off his new albums is the self-titled song Ghost to a Ghost, which Hank3 says has a lot of different influences, from spaghetti Western to a little bit of Adam Ant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, from a Ghost to a Ghost is from a generation to another generation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re skipping that a little bit. You know, people say I look like Hank Williams [Sr.]â&#x20AC;Ś sound like him on a good day, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where it came from,â&#x20AC;? he revealed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then, since weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about the ghostly image or the shadow kind of thing, then the rest of those lyrics kinda fell into place, naturally.â&#x20AC;? Musicians Tom Waits, Dave Sherman, and T. Roy Medlin also contributed their artistry to that ethereal tune. Speaking of his grandfather, Hank3 has been working on the Reinstate Hank movement for some time. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it about? Simple. He is trying to get the Grand Ole Opry to reinstate Hank Williams, Sr., who was dismissed from the Opry just before he passed away. The problem is that the Opryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rules say they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reinstate after a person passes away â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and to date, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been unwilling to bend them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, all we can do is talk about it, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the main thing. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not asking for a $60,000 statue. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re only asking for one hour, one ceremony, where they say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes, we are honored and privileged to have Hank Williams be part of our history and we are proud to have him in the circle of the Mother Church of Country Music.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? Will it ever happen? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably one of those things where this corporate guy is no longer in that position and a younger one steps in and pays respects where respects are due,â&#x20AC;? Hank3 replied with reverence for a man who passed 20 years before he was born. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a busy life for this hard-


working musician, but he also finds plenty of time to give back to causes he believes in. Earlier this month he performed at a Ride for Dime Bash in Ft. Worth, Texas. And animal lovers out there will be over the moon to know that he also performs annually at a Tennessee animal shelter benefit. But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just stop there â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he also participates in the rescues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All my dogs have been rescues. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done on the side if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m home for a little longer than normal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just something that really doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to do with country music, or just music in general, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a therapy.â&#x20AC;? In fact, he recently immortalized his dog, Trooper, by interweaving his howling and barking into the fabric of the song Trooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hollar. While he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play from a set list, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather feel each audience out for what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play Trooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hollar at the upcoming show.

Divine Fits New Album Has No Throwaway Songs





Hank3 at The Factory

o call Divine Fits a supergroup would be doing them a tremendous disservice. Yes, the band is comprised of three main members from three different indie rock giants: Spoon, Handsome Furs and Newbomb Turks, but to impose supergroup status on them would be foisting too many expectations on what is essentially a side project for three guys from different bands. Divine Fits is Britt Daniel, lead singer from Spoon, Dan Boeckner of Handsome Furs and Wolf Parade, and Sam Brown of Newbomb Turks, and their album A Thing Called Divine Fits sounds

Th e W e e k l y S u n â&#x20AC;˘

like none of the aforementioned bands, but a little like all of them. The songs rely heavily on the synth-driven sound of Handsome Furs, but Britt Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocals keep them from sounding like a retread of the now defunct duo. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sam Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drumming that keeps everything locked together; the songs are so rhythmically linked that the first five songs fly by without evening noticing until you get to the acoustic â&#x20AC;&#x153;Civilian Stripes.â&#x20AC;? While it would have been easy to just do a synthesizer-based album and add drum machines, it does my heart good to know that drummers still get to provide the backbeat even when keyboards are the main instrument, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what

August 29, 2012

makes A Thing Called Divine Fits a special album. It was basically recorded live in Danielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard in Austin, but there are no throwaway songs. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember the last album that I loved every song on the album. I do now. tws

One Lucky Dog Book Signing For THE WEEKLY SUN


ocal authors, naturalists and longtime animal advocates Sophie and Derek Craighead will sign copies of “The Story of Rusty: One Lucky Dog” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Carol’s Dollar Mountain Lodge. Ketchum illustrator Maxton Beckwith will join them. The newly published “The Story of Rusty: One Lucky Dog” tells a heartwarming tale of a golden retriever who was rescued from the despair of confinement only to discover a life of extraordinary adventure and love with his new owners. The beautifully illustrated book now available locally at Chapter One Bookstore and Iconoclast Books in Ketchum, and through national booksellers, is appropriate for all ages, with universal messages of love and hope. A portion of the event’s book sales will benefit “Lucky’s Place” in Montana, as well as other no-

kill animal shelters. Derek and Sophie, and children Scotty and Sage, have been part-time residents of Sun Valley for twenty-five years, also dividing time between Montana and Wyoming, where both Sophie and Derek are involved in The Peregrine Fund, and many other wildlife causes. Derek is a member of the world-famous Craighead family, whose knowledge of grizzly bears is unsurpassed. Sophie is a hugely generous philanthropist whose interests range from The Hunger Coalition to Costa Rican national parks, The Delta Society (training service dogs) and animal shelters all across the United States.  Well-behaved dogs are welcome to attend the event, free to roam the grass adjacent to the terrace behind Dollar Mountain Lodge. For information on the event and “The Story of Rusty: One Lucky Dog,” contact Chapter One Bookstore at 208.725.5425. tws


Sun Valley Summer Symphony Notes The Sun Valley Summer Symphony, the largest privately funded free-admission orchestra in America, concluded a highly successful summer concert season, due in part to the sold-out audience and 82 sponsor tickets sold for the annual benefit concert. The benefit concert and Symphony donors fund the 15 free worldclass concerts attended by thousands of local residents and visitors, as well as the Symphony’s year-round School of Music in Blaine County, which currently serves more than 200 students, ages 9 to 18. Before long, plans will be underway

for the summer next season, beginning with the selection of the benefit concert musician or musicians. Sun Valley Summer Symphony Executive Director Jennifer Teisinger noted the element of mystery important to each benefit concert. “From the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to Garth Brooks to Jackie Evancho—country to jazz to Broadway—you never know what to expect from a Sun Valley Summer Symphony benefit concert, but you know that it will be a fabulous night of music.” INFO: 208.622.5607 or visit

Fishing R epoRt The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR AUg. 29, 2012 By: Jim sAnTA


hile we continue to deal some smoky days here in the Wood River Valley fishing is one activity that is certainly not affected, the fish have no idea it’s smoky. In fact, the hazy skies may actually enhance fishing. The smoke has been variable, so we’ll have clear skies off and on as the winds change. As heavy exertion is not suggested when the smoke rolls in fishing is an excellent alternative, and fishing is good. Time of day is likely to be the most important factor right now. With the water being at it’s lowest and warmest of the season it will pay to start fairly early. On the Big Wood I would suggest being on the water by about 9:00 a.m. and things will slow down substantially after the noon hour. In this morning window we are seeing a good number of small mayflies, namely Tricos. While fishing size 20 trico patterns on the big Wood presents quite a challenge, there are some easier ways to approach it. A large indicator fly with a small zebra midge trailer will fish well, and small dries such as parachute adams in sizes 16 and 18 will work just fine. Look to the shallower riffle water to be holding a lot of the fish now as it provides good oxygen and cover. The heat of the day will be challenging, but hoppers may attract some attention, run a zebra midge as a trailer for best success. The action in the evening has been decent. While there have not been any really strong hatches, the fish are active and feeding. Pick your favorite mayfly or caddis pattern for the evening and cover as much water as you can. Silver Creek is in a bit of transition right now. We’re seeing the remnants of a rather inconsistent trico hatch this season. There are some callibaetis in the ponds and a mix of baetis can happen any time of day. Hopper and damsel fishing in the afternoon has been nearly as good as anything. With the weather pattern changing a bit and the nights cooling down we’ll begin to see more consistency. We’ll start to see stronger hatches of baetis mid morning and the mahogany duns should be right around the corner. As we often reference to our customers, the best time of season to fish is after Labor Day. It’s hard to believe it’s already here, but it is a great time of season and we’ll look forward to a lot of great fishing ahead. Stay tuned and enjoy the weekend!

can’t tell you how much it pains me to have to pan a film from my favorite moviemaker, David Cronenberg. But that is the case with his new film Cosmopolis starring, unfortunately, the heartthrob from the Twilight movie series, Robert Pattison. Pattinson was certainly alluring to the producers because it is hoped that he may bring a multitude of young fans to the theater. Alas, that will not be the case here because this shockingly stultifying and boring picture is sure to attract no business. Cronenberg is an unqualified genius, which has been shown over and over again in such minor classics as The Fly, A History of Violence, Dead Ringers and Videodrome. Cosmopolis is based on a Don Delillo novel

so faithfully that that may be the problem. It may be that the book just doesn’t hold up. Another real problem is that the story, about a billionaire financier who loses his fortune while driving around in a white stretch limo, takes place, for the most part, in that limo. This can lead to some bad claustrophobia. And a script that made virtually no sense combined with Pattison’s non-existent acting range made the movie seem interminable, even when it was only ten minutes old. Ever hear of Chinese water torture? Pattinson goes through a series of encounters, mostly in the limo but a few, thankfully, outside. The inanely long climax comes when he meets the man, Paul Giamatti, as unappealing as ever, that wants to kill him. By this time you’re begging for mercy that the film will end soon. Of course, Cronenberg has his touches and there are a relatively few moments to be savored. But for the most part the film is a bummer in its inability to reach any of the heights of his other films. And that’s truly a shame. tws

Daniel Delos decker

It’s All About Next Year


aniel Delos Decker passed away at his home in Hailey on August 15th, 2012. He was 91 years old. Dan was born on February 10, 1921 in Elmira, New York. He grew up in Auburn, N.Y., attended Auburn High School and was an Eagle Scout. Summers he’d help his grandfather at the family flour and feed mill. When he was very young, they delivered flour sacks by horse and carriage. Dan’s family also spent much time at their rustic camp on Owasco Lake, swimming and canoeing. In 1939, Dan enrolled at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland where he met his future wife, Jean Duncan. After graduating during June week 1942 - a year earlier because of the war - he and Jean eloped to Nevada that September. Then leaving Jean behind in San Francisco, he shipped out on the destroyer, USS Coghlan as Gunner Officer in the Aleutian Islands for the next fourteen months. Upon his return, Dan had an opportunity to attend submarine school in Connecticut. They drove across country in their first used car to start married life in New London. A year later, Dan was off to Mare Island to help put in a new boat, Spadefish, in commission. Dan spent the next two years from 1944-45 making five patrols on the submarine as a Gunner Officer in the conning tower. He received two silver stars, a bronze star, the presidential citation unit and several campaign medals. As the war ended, Dan received orders to new construction, USS Sarda in Portsmouth, N.H. He was on the shakedown cruise as acting Exec, visiting ports in the Caribbean. As a request for flight training came through, they moved to Dallas where Jean gave birth to son Daniel III. Training continued in Corpus Christie, Pensacola and finally Jacksonville. After flight training Dan was assigned to Bermuda then Wales, as an exchange pilot for the Royal Air Force. Their short tour in the UK ended with orders to the Naval Academy where Dan taught Chemistry during the school year and flight training for midshipmen during the summers. In 1953, the family moved to Villefranche sur Mer halfway between Nice and Monte Carlo. This was the home port for the Sixth Fleet Command. Dan’s duties were Aide and Flag Secretary to the Vice Admiral. They were in the Med to “show the flag” in our friendly nations. These included visits to Spain, Italy, Istanbul, Rhodes and Beirut. On board the fleet it was the “champagne Navy” entertaining visiting dignitaries and officials in return. From the French Riviera, they went back to the States first to Jacksonville, Florida then to Brunswick, Maine where they adopted daughter Julie. A three -year stint in Japan followed stateside living. Dan was Administrative Officer for the Commander Naval Bases in the Far East at the Naval Air Station in Atsugi. In his spare time, he organized a little league

I team integrating Japanese school boys with the American kids on base. Prior to this, the Japanese boys hadn’t played with a real baseball and regulation field. The program was great for the kids and a successful cultural melding. For Dan’s final year in the military, he was transferred to Long Island, New York where he did research until his Port Washington retirement in 1964 as a Commander. For the next five years, Dan headed a research team at Columbia University, designing anti-ballistic missiles. He attended night school earning his Master’s Degree and most of a Doctorate degree in Industrial Engineering. In 1969, when the research job was winding down, Dan moved the family to Island Park, Idaho to run Pond’s lodge with his brother. He went to school to become a snowmobile mechanic. He and Jean ran the lodge for ten years, retiring in Island Park for a third time. They stayed another five years. In 1985, Dan and Jean moved to Hailey to be closer to Danny and Julie. Dan was an avid stamp and coin collector. He loved spending hours building furniture in his shop. He enjoyed reading history, science and politics, smoking his pipe and a good glass of bourbon. His poker group of over twenty years was a great Thursday night getaway. For years he drove to Las Vegas to meet friends to play blackjack. He loved watching sports, especially baseball, solving Sudoku and crossword puzzles and wrote essays on books he thought were important social commentaries. Earlier in his life he played bridge and joined bowling leagues in many of the places they lived. In 2006, author Stephen Moore contacted Dan and others to write a book about the Spadefish patrols. In 2010, a Japanese film crew traveled to Halley to interview Dan about an incident in which the Spadefish sunk one of the largest Japanese cargo ships with over 4500 troops on board. A documentary was started to tell this story including commentaries from two Japanese survivors. Dan is survived by his wife, Jean, son Dan (Pam) and daughter Julie. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother and sister. At Dan’s request there will be no service. He was cremated on August 18th.

A dry meadow or slope will have more separation of species, more bunch grass, more open, gravelly ground, more exposure and less nutrition. Another challenge to seeding is timing. After the ground is prepared, autumn seeding works fine because it allows for stratification, a necessary cold period before seeds can germinate. The trick is to seed after all the warm, Indian Summer periods are past. A few years ago, I lost an entire seeding because of a November warm spell. Everything sprouted, and then promptly perished. Spring seeding tends to result in later blooms. Nowadays, I do a light spring re-seeding just to cover my butt. Some seeds are of biennial plants that do not come up for another year. A scarlet gilia will just be a small crown the first year, and a big plant the next. Many seeds and plants take their time, so each year has its surprises. Frost is coming as you read this, and I don’t need The Weather Channel to tell me. The first blooms on the asters seem to invite it. If you have question or comments, contact Bali at this e-mail:

Reduce Junk Mail to Save Resources


nwanted mail can really be tiresome. It is also a huge waste of natural resources and your time. Each year, the average American home receives 41 pounds of unsolicited mail. Most junk mail doesn’t get recycled. Junk mail ends up in our landfills. What can you do to stop this waste? First, get off the lists. Go to for starters. Secondly, do not throw away your junk mail. It is all recyclable curbside in the mixed paper section of your “blue box,” or at your nearest recycle station. Even envelopes with windows are recyclable. When you receive an offer to be billed online, take it! And make your payments online. If you do not already do so, learn how. You’ll save time and money (no more stamps!) and it is faster and safer. Check out www.catalogchoice. org to eliminate unwanted catalogs, or call the 800 numbers on catalogs you receive and ask them to take you off all their mailing lists. If you order an item, make sure to ask that they do not rent or sell your name. To eliminate unwanted or multiple phone books, you can choose the ones you want at https://www.yellowpagesoptout. com/. If your own business maintains databases or mailing lists, be protective of your clients’ privacy. Have questions, or want to create your own ERCbeats?

Guylay, a 12-year-old sixthgrader at Community School, just returned from a Kids State Dinner with First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House. She was one of 54 winners in a contest that featured winning recipes that could be adapted for healthy, tasty school lunches. The contest was part of the first Ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Moveâ&#x20AC;? initiative designed to curtail childhood obesity. More than 1,200 children ages 8 through 12 entered recipes for the contest, including a Secret Service Super Salad, submitted by a 9-year-old Texas boy who said he wants to be an agent. Elena was chosen to represent Idaho based on her Fiesta Casserole. Her 9-year-old brother Alex was runner-up for the state of Idaho with his Enchilada Pie using butternut squash, broccoli and Swiss chard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You came up with dishesâ&#x20AC;Śthat are good for you. But, more importantly, they taste good, too,â&#x20AC;? Mrs. Obama told the pint-sized chefs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can happenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;healthy and tasty at the same time.â&#x20AC;? The kids, already on overdrive by the time theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gone on a tour of Washington monuments and entered the White House past Secret Service men stationed in trees, shifted into even higher gear as President Obama made a surprise visit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Usually, I get invited to state dinners,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This time I had to crash.â&#x20AC;? It took 45 minutes to get the kids past multiple security checkpoints, which included standing in footprints while their pictures were taken. The children were told to refer to the First Lady only as Mrs. Obama and were stripped of everything but a card announcing their state and name when they were ushered in for a hug with the Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife. White House Assistant Chef Sam Kass took the youngsters on a tour of the White House garden with its jumbo-sized watermelon, papaya trees and diverse varieties of tomatoes,

Nickolodeonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reed Alexander of iCarly mingled with the youngsters and Big Time Rush put on a mini-concert. Lunch served up on White House china consisted of quinoa black bean avocado and corn salad, kale chips, baked zucchini fries, cabbage sloppy joes, fruit kabobs and strawberryana smoothiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;all taken from recipes the kids had submitted. About a hundred news cameras were lined up along the wall, all snapping pictures at once. One photographer was immediately reprimanded when he crossed the line they were made to stand behind. And Elena got a few extra flashbulbs aimed her way, thanks to the cowboy hat she bought at the Sun Valley Arts and Crafts Festival to represent Idaho. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girl winner from Idaho rocked a cowboy hat and boots,â&#x20AC;? mentioned one food blogger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was so incredibleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;I felt like a celebrity,â&#x20AC;? said Elena. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mrs. Obama gave us a speechâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; she said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Congratulations. I expect you to be an ambassador and spread this program further.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;? That wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be hard. Elenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community School has already asked her to put together a presentation for a school assembly, and she plans to put together a video for other schools, as well. She also will cook up some of the 54 recipes for the middle schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight-week food study. Elenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother, Kathryn Guylay, says she was particularly impressed by Marshall Reid, a 12-year-old who co-wrote

ow that Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer, featuring warm days and the farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; markets with their sumptuous tomatoes and other veggie delights, good cold gazpacho always comes to mind. There are so many different varieties of this wonderful soup but I am going to offer for your palate two: one red and one white. And, by the way, I have been enjoying this week some truly marvelous large tomatoes from Hagerman, so quick, before they disappear, go buy some and use them for that red gazpacho.

Red Gazpacho:

Tegernsee Entertains Morgan Jones BY KAREN BOSSICK

“I feel really lucky that the last few years we have been able to make enough money to send a child from the community over there.”


he toured King Ludwig’s Neuschwanstein castle, tried her hand at wood chopping and took musical nature walks. She ate hearty pretzels, thick meats, farmers’ bread and Kaiserschmarrn, an Austrian pancake-like dessert made of eggs, milk, flour, sugar and apples baked in butter. And Morgan Jones embraced the music and cultural traditions of Tegernsee, Germany, a picturesque town set on a Bavarian lake, as she’s attended Waldfest, Seafest and other summer festivals. “This was possibly the most life-changing experience for me—I’m so in love with the place and people,” said Jones. Jones was the recipient of the proceeds from the Christmas Market held every year at Lisa Vierling’s compound at Croney Cove. The money facilitates youth exchanges between the children of the Wood River Valley and the children of Tegernsee—Ketchum’s sister city. “I feel really lucky that the last few years we have been able to make enough money to send a child from the community over there,” said Vierling. Jones hung up her garden gloves at Moss Garden where she worked this summer in early August to head to Germany for three weeks. She got back just in time to show 15 Bavarian youth, including her host brother Gabriel, around Sun Valley and Stanley before taking off for Lewis and Clark College in Portland where she plans to study theater, journalism, environmental studies and art and design. In Germany, Jones learned to interject words like “Danke”

–Morgan Jones

(thank you), “Ein Bier bitte” (a beer please), “Schokolade” (chocolate) and “Snookie” (a popular term of affection) between her most used English phrases, such as “Let’s have ice cream.” “It’s so clichéd but the lake is so beautiful it’s like living in a Snow White fairy tale,” she said. “I’m forever and complete attached to this magical land of Bavaria. There is something deeply sacred in this country—unexplainable. Is it the lush farmland or the rich soil? The encompassing mountains? The pristine lake’s tranquil existence? The love and pride for this place? The people and their traditions? It’s breathtaking.” Jones said she gained 10 pounds eating the bratwurst, beer and “yummy rolls” slathered with jams and Nutella. “It’s heavy stuff but I really miss these wonderful breakfasts and pretzels. Now it’s back to yogurt and granola,” she lamented. The Tegernsee youth spent a few days watching whales near Seattle before heading to Sun Valley via Montana. They spent

a week here river rafting, playing at Redfish Lake and hiking Baldy before heading to Jackson, Wyo., where they will tour Yellowstone National Park. They’ll return to Sun Valley later this week where they will ride a wagon sponsored by Cox Communications in the Wagon Days parade. The youth are intrigued by the high mountain desert that’s so different from their lush green rainy homeland and how spread out Sun Valley houses are. “They think they we get these forest fires every summer so I’m trying to explain that it’s not a regular part of life here,” Jones said. Jones said she would one day like to come back and head up the Sister City exchange. “It’s so important to meet new group of kids,” she said. “They taught me about who I am. You can shed all the bad stuff and find more of yourself underneath. “I’m filled with so much gratitude that I had this opportunity. And a little piece of Bavaria will remain with me every day.” tws

United Way Recently Celebrated 50 Years in South Central Idaho with Golf Shootout In celebration of their 50 years of service in South Central Idaho, our local United Way was hoping to give away $50,000 to a lucky golfer who could score a hole in One in a shootout format on last Friday at hole number 12 at Jerome country club. Throughout that week, 186 contestants took over 1630 golf shots, vying for a chance to qualify and paying $1 per shot, with the proceeds contributed to United Way’s grant fund. From those 186 contestants, 15 golfers teed it up in the Finals, but could not find the hole and win the cash prize. Doug McKay of Twin Falls came the closest with a shot about 30 feet from the pin, and won an overnight stay at Cactus Pete’s, with golf for 2 at Jackpot Golf course. Adam Quarles of Ketchum, was second and took home a prize of a free nights stay at the Best Western in Burley. Third closest on the green was Bruce Harding, who won a gift basket from Rudy’s a cooks paradise. The United Way of South Central Idaho wishes to thank all of their sponsors, prized donors and volunteers who gave generously to contribute to the success of this event.

Fishing Patagonia with Trout Unlimited

Sun Valley Resort was named to Golf Magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Public Coursesâ&#x20AC;? list this year, earning further distinction for the iconic resort with 45 holes on three courses. In tandem with its recent awards announcement, Sun Valley is offering discerning golfers and resort enthusiasts value-laden late summer and glorious fall getaways via two new golf packages. Golfers may choose from Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trail Creek, White Clouds and Elkhorn courses with the Triple Play golf experience, a three-round, two-night offer, starting at $350 per person, double occupancy. Reserved on a first-come, first-served basis for stays now through September 3, the golf package offers significant savings of more than 50 percent during normal high-season rates. Golfers receive an added bonus: complimentary play on

its highly regarded 18-hole Sawtooth putting course. Sun Valley lives up to its name in the fall, when clear skies and warm days allow for incredible autumn views of golden cottonwoods and aspens in the valley and surrounding mountains.

US Pro Cycling Challenge

Some Old Lions Still Have Teeth BY BALI SZABO


his year, the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second, it was not the 14,000-foot summits of Coloradoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s San Juan Mountains that towered over this road race. Last Friday the news broke that this raceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder, Lance Armstrong, did something uncharacteristic of himâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;he gave up the fight against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and Federal Judge Sam Sparks. While admitting no wrongdoing (he has never tested positive for any drug), Armstrong faces a lifetime ban from racing and loses his seven Tour de France titles. On Saturday morning, the Washington Post accused the USADA of hypocrisy and questionable legal tactics in violation of due process. This case isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over, especially since the International Cycling Federation disagrees with the USADA and its â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;witch hunt.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; After last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful debut, this race has quickly attracted more sponsors and more teams, including domestic and development teams. Judging from the good crowds at every stage, in towns and on the passes, this year will surpass last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1.1 million spectators. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beautiful showcase for the Mountain West. The race consisted of six stages, plus a final 9.5-mile individual time trial Sunday in Denver, over 660 miles in all. It went through Durango, Telluride, Montrose, Crested Butte, Gunnison, Aspen, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Golden, Boulder and Denver. The stages were won by young Americans Tejay Van Garderen

and Tom Danielson, Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jens Voigt, and sprinter Tyler Farrar (26), also of the U.S., who won two stages. Though this is a mountain race, sprinters can win stages, though never the overall title. More often than not, the peloton chases down the leaders a few kilometers or less from the finish, giving the sprinters a chance to win the race in the last 1/2 km or less. On the podium, the winner is flanked by two young beauties who plant a kiss on each cheek. The best was saved for last. Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stage went from Golden to Boulder, and ended with a 3 ½-mile climb up Flagstaff Mountain. The top four riders were within seconds of each other in the standings. Tejay Van Garderen, in the lead, represented the up-and-coming young lions. The other two, Christian Vande Velde and Levi Leipheimer, were the older riders. All week, last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner, Leipheimer, stayed in the peloton but was only 8 seconds behind Tejay. With about a mile of uphill to go, he took the lead and accelerated past his rivals, opened and kept a 21-second lead heading into Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time trial. When asked if this year would be the passing of the torch to the young, Levi replied, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Not so fast.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; On Sunday, 22-year-old American Tyler Phinney won the time trial in 17:25 minutes, averaging over 32 mph, and topping out at over 40 mph. Christian Vande Velde erased his 21-second deficit and won the overall title with a ride of 17:35. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s runner-up beat last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner, Leviâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;two old lions with plenty left. tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I don't know how you guys do it. I work 45 hours per week, give or take a few hours, and have a wife and two kids. At the end of my workday I usually help my wife with dinner, then take the kids to karate class or mow the lawn. Rarely do I have time for myself. And when I do, I'm so tired that all I want to do is fall on the sofa and watch an hour or two of television. I'd love to buy my next tractor, car or appliance from the classifieds, but who has the time to pick up the newspaper and find an ad? If I look at the paper, it's usually to see what the weather will be like for the weekend. As it is, I'm writing this letter during my son's karate class. You guys read the classifieds everyday. How do you find the time to call ads and go look at things? I could use some advice. My tractor isn't going to survive the summer.

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: You sure sound like a

busy guy. And if your tractor breaks, mowing the lawn by hand will make you even busier. Carry: Today, everyone seems

Fast Facts Couch Potato

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 08/26/12 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

like they have more to do and less time to do it. After all, working and raising a family is no easy task, especially if you're actively involved in your children's lives. Cash: However, we all have more time than we think. We simply have to manage it better and avoid activities that waste our time. Carry: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already identified moments throughout your day where you have some spare time. Instead of "falling on the sofa" and watching TV, pick up the classifieds for ten minutes or bring it to your son's karate class to read the ads.

Cash: Many people find read-

ing the newspaper, including the classified section, to be a relaxing activity. Carry: And finding a deal in the classifieds does not have to be time-consuming. If you find something of interest, take a few minutes to call the ad as soon as you spot it. With a cell phone you can call from anywhere and if you ask the right questions, you'll only have to make one trip to purchase the item. Cash: Just think, if you start reading the classifieds now, you could have that new tractor before it's time to cut the grass again.

Need some spare time? Look at your TV watching habits. Nearly two-thirds of all homes have three or more television sets and the average person watches four or more hours of programming per day. That adds up to 28 hours of television each week or two months of roundthe-clock programming each year. If you live to age 65, you will have spent more than nine years watching television shows. Ironically, most people can't remember what they watched last week.

Taking it Easy

Today, nearly everyone feels overworked, underpaid, stressed and short on time. While your boss probably has control of your paycheck, you can work on being less stressed by managing your time properly. The average worker wastes 2.09 hours each day, not counting lunch and scheduled break times. Include the average time at home watching TV (four hours) and you could add up to six additional hours to your day. â&#x20AC;˘


Reader Humor Chiming In

Last weekend I stopped by an estate sale near my home. As I was wandering around, I noticed a beautiful grandfather clock in the corner with an amazing price. My first thought was it didn't work, but the gentleman came over and told me the antique kept perfect time. He explained, "My parents bought it at a yard sale more than ten years ago, but kept it in the garage because the chime was broken." I immediately pulled the money from my pocket to pay and said, "I'm surprised they didn't use it just because the chime didn't work." "Oh it works," he said handing me my change. "It just goes off every ten minutes!" (Thanks to Darrin B.)

518 raves Kudos to Sun Valley Mayor Dwayne Briscoe and also the SV City Council for standing their ground recently when Ketchum Mayor Randy Hall, SV marketing Alliance board president Jake Peters, Sun Valley Co. general manager Tim Silva and Sun Valley’s rep. to the marketing Alliance (Brooke Wojcik) stormed into the SV City Hall during its meeting and demanded the city not cut the Marketing Alliance’s funding—a very selfserving intimidation tactic that SV City Councilman Franz Suhadolnik (among others) rightly criticized. (Instead of being so openly contemptuous of SV cutting its funding for the Marketing Alliance, maybe Hall and company should see just how much of the Alliance’s budget is going to SALARIES right now—salaries that, given the Alliance’s very spotty track record so far, are all-but-impossible to justify!!) Like something? Don’t keep it to yourself. Say it here in 40 words or less for free. e-mail your ad to or fax it over to 788-4297 by Noon on Mondays.
