Blackberry Bushes to Infuse Brewery With Bluegrass BY KAREN BOSSICK


he bass player is a member of the Spokane Symphony. The fiddler has a degree in jazz fiddle. And the singer-songwriter dabbles in musical theater. But when Taylor Kent, Jakob Breitbach and Jes Raymond get together as The Blackberry Bushes, they fuse the twang of bluegrass with a contemporary sophistication. The Seattle trio will perform at 8 p.m. Friday at the Sun Valley Brewery in Hailey. “I like to say if Dolly Parton, Edgar Meyer and Vassar Clemmons had a band, we’d want to see that,” said Raymond. “We are trying to bring the poetics of the singer-songwriter to the energy of a progressive bluegrass sound. “Bluegrass is a funny genre. Some people think anything with a fiddle is bluegrass; some people define it very narrowly. We have lots of influences, including pop, jazz, classical, and rock. But we love bluegrass music and we call ourselves bluegrass.” Raymond grew up in Vermont, attending bluegrass festivals. She met her fiancé, Breitbach, who grew up playing fiddle in a family band, in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound. Pretty soon, Portland, Ore., native Kent entered the picture, enabling the three to construct a mix of joyful singing, enchanting songwriting and daredevil sound with virtuosic fiddle and bowed bass. “Their blend of traditional bluegrass and folk elements with more contemporary sounds has an appeal not seen since Nickel Creek or The Be Good Tanyas,” noted Joseph Kyle of The Big Takeover. The trio named their band on a whim without much thought so they would have a name for their first show. “As a kid I remember going to my grandparents’ house, just down the road from my parents’ house, and I loved to climb through the tunnels that my cousins and I had built through a large stand of blackberry bushes,” Raymond said. “Then out here in Washington, blackberry bushes are EVERYWHERE! And anyone who has tried to get rid of them knows it’s really futile. We didn’t really expect the name to stick—it was just for that first show. But, apparently, when you name something The Blackberry Bushes, it is much like actual blackberry bushes, and there is just no getting rid of the name.” Raymond said the songs she writes typically take the form of a question. “When I was 19, I moved to New Mexico on a Greyhound bus. I lived in the hostel, cleaned it in the morning and sat in the yard all day learning to play the guitar and write songs. I would sing my songs for travelers at the fire circle we had at night. I sang an older gentleman a new song one night, and he told me, ‘It’s good, but don’t tell me what I should think or know.’ “That has always really stuck with me. I try to notice what is happening around me, tell the truth, and use my songs to ask more questions than I have answers for. If a song is good, it teaches me, and hopefully someone else can put themselves into it also.” tws

From Ice Rink to Kitchen Brian Boitano

Brian Boitano Cooks to Benefit Sun Valley Figure Skating Club STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


e spun the Granny Smith apples in the sangria with the finesse he puts into a spiral. And he flipped sopapillas with the grace with which he lands the ’Tano triple lutz. And when the evening was said and done, the crowd was as entertained as if Brian Boitano had performed his quadruple toe loop. Brian Boitano traded the rink for the kitchen sink Sunday night, starring in a fundraiser for the Sun Valley Figure Skating Club. Seventy-five men and women ponied up $100 to $200 each to see the 1988 Olympic gold medalist show the casual easy-going way he entertains friends at home in San Francisco. “We’ll sit at a bar like this and cook and eat as we go,” he said. “Everyone wants to be involved when they’re at someone’s house. They’re always saying, ‘Can I help?’ ‘Can I help?’ Before you know it, people haven’t sat down at the table with a napkin on their lap. But they’ve had a ball. “Getting my friends involved inspires them to do more impromptu entertaining, which I think people are interested in right now.” Boitano donned his chef’s apron this time in Rick and Kim Selby’s spectacular new home overlooking Dollar and Baldy mountains. Guests walked amidst hot tubs and a firepit built into a gargantuan patio as they nibbled on Boitano’s signature hors d’oeuvres. And they gathered around a massive granite counter in a kitchen equipped with its own wood-fired oven as they watched Boitano serve up his demonstrations. Boitano deftly mixed a little tequila, triple sec and lime juice into a pitcher of freshly squeezed watermelon juice as he showed off one of his favorite margaritas. “I don’t get stuck on a recipe. I tend to use more watermelon than less,” he said. “I also make these with apricots, mangos, passionfruit. It’s fun for guests to experiment with making drinks like these because it’s like a scientific experiment.” Boitano said entertaining via cooking is second nature to him, just as is ice skating. It started with a big Italian

inally, there’s joy in the land. We’d all be happier if there wasn’t global warming. There is an ever-shrinking minority who insist that the whole thing is a hoax, weakkneed liberal alarmism, bad science, etc. Finally, there’s a straw of hope for the deniers. The very science they’ve damned, but now embrace, is showing that warming has plateaued. Since 1998, air temperatures have not increased, even though the hottest years in our short, recorded history have come in the last decade. It’s hot; just not hotter. There has been no decrease in temperatures. We’ve had plateaus before—the last one from 1940 to 1974—and we still don’t know what caused that. For sure, not any one thing. Nature demands multi-factor analysis. Many disciplines have to add their data points to the grid. The first explanation for this leveling is natural variability. Good explanation for the short term. Then there are the sunspot cycles of 11 and 22 years. There’s variation in the sun’s radiative output, but it’s mostly ultraviolet, visible light. The natural variation is too small (from the 17th century to today) to significantly affect either cooling or warming. Volcanism has contributed some particulate matter to the atmosphere. Particulate matter is the biggest factor, and the largest contributor to that is pollution, especially the huge increase in Asian emissions from coal-fired power plants. The particulates collect and create a blanket in the upper atmosphere that bounces some of the sun’s radiation back into space. Actually, this dynamic has kept us cooler

than we should be. Increased Asian greenhouse CO2 emissions are, to an extent, balanced by the pollution blanket. Pick your poison. Another plausible contributing factor are the oceans. They are the great temperature regulators of the planet. No doubt the oceans are CO2 sinks (absorbers) and the re-distributors of warm and cold water. Are the oceans absorbing the extra heat? Some of the warmed water does find its way below the 300-foot-deep surface layer, but most of it stays in the upper layers. The major circulatory force is called meridional overturning circulation (MOC), and it doesn’t work like we think. The ocean is so fascinating it deserves an article on its own (next week). It is also the 800-pound gorilla in the room that is our future, near and long term. Twenty thousand years ago the CO2 level (we know this from trapped air bubbles in Antarctic ice core samples) was 200 parts per million (ppm). In 1750, right before the Industrial Revolution, the count rose to 280 ppm. In the short 263 years since, the level reached 400 ppm. Due to natural processes, it took 18,000 years for the atmosphere to gain just 80 ppm. The earth returns some of the sun’s ultraviolet radiation as long wave infrared radiation, to the atmosphere. Water vapor and CO2 —the two major greenhouse gases—capture this heat to keep us toasty. CO2 levels and temperatures are in a lockstep upwards. The temperature chart for the last 2000 years is called the ‘hockey stick.’ The first 1800 years form the straight handle. Then, from 1900 to today, the temperature shoots straight up to form the blade. After every pause, the rise in temperatures resumes. The massive oceans cover 70 percent of the earth’s surface at an average depth of 1200 feet, and they have yet to speak. We’ve become disaster junkies, so enjoy the havoc. tws

rees cannot move into a den like animals do as cold weather approaches, so they must have adaptations to survive the cold and drying conditions of winter. Leaves are a major source of water loss and are difficult to protect from winter conditions. (Do you remember heavy wet early-season snows here that broke branches off trees that still had green leaves?) Broadleaf trees are programmed to ditch their leaves in autumn when lengthening nights signal the approach of winter. Chemical breakdown of the green chlorophyll molecules reveals yellow and orange pigments that have been hidden in the leaves all along, and hard frosts bring out red colors. The tree weakens its tissue at the base of each leaf with enzymes and plugs up the leaf attachment to the twig with

scar tissue. Gravity and wind soon drop the loosened leaves. Conifers shed needles, too, but they retain needles for more than one year, so we don’t see such a dramatic effect. Conifers make up for keeping some needles with a thick coating on each needle that slows water loss during winter. Conifers combat limb breakage from snow load with a special type of wood with long flexible fibers and by branching arrangements that shed snow easily. Kind of like animal hibernation, trees also undergo changes at the cellular level that help them to survive the cold, dry conditions of winter by concentrating liquids in the tree to drop the freezing point.

Shelter Looks for Relief from Mudslides STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


metal sculpture of a cat standing on its head stands outside the entryway to the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley. It dovetails perfectly with an animal shelter that has been turned upside down since the Beaver Creek Fire marched down Carbonate Mountain, its flames lapping at the fence posts of the shelter. The newest threat has come not from the fire, but from mudslides that have surged down the burned hillsides like black molten lava, bending kennel fence posts, tearing away concrete and gravel in outdoor kennels and ripping holes under the fence that offer dogs escape routes. “I’m so ready for it to be normal again,” sighed executive director Jo-Anne Dixon. “The staff has done such a good job going with the flow. Several were evacuated themselves but they were thinking more in terms of: How can we help the animals? We were so excited to come back, get back in our routines and now … this!” On Thursday Geoff Sjoberg shoveled mud and dirt that had accumulated in the kennels east of the shelter. A backhoe had already moved up to eight inches of mud off the shelter’s driveway. A few dogs sat on top of a thin layer of mud in their kennels. And the floor inside the shelter sported muddy tracks—“Everything is filthy but it can’t be helped,” grimaced one employee. “We evacuated for a week— that was like a vacation for the dogs,” said Sjoberg. But we were thinking—Holy cow! What are we gonna do when the first big

rain comes? We didn’t have to wait long to find out.” Ketchum engineer Bruce Smith will propose some shortterm and long-term solutions for dealing with potential mudslides this week. Once that plan is in place, the shelter will likely have some work parties to construct sand bags around parts of the property and rebuild kennels. It has already scheduled a work party on Wednesday to spread straw on the hillsides to absorb rain rather than let it run off soil that has hardened. Volunteers are being sought to walk the shelter’s 28 dogs, including Gabby, Calvin and Chaco, off property—the canyon the dogs once played in is not considered safe at present. The shelter could also use donations to help pay for the backhoe and other mud mitigation efforts it had not budgeted for, said Dixon. The annual Putts for Mutts fundraiser was cancelled due to the fire. Even before Dixon voiced that wish, a woman showed up, check in hand. “I felt really bad that they had that extra trouble because of the fire,” she said. “It was one thing to deal with the fire, but then to deal with a deluge like that— how long has it been since we had rain?!” Mudslides are worse than the fire, said Dixon. “They have ominous overtones. It’s not over—they can continue to come. Every time it rains you think: What’s going to happen? It’s a bit unsettling that way,” she said. “What I’m really looking for is normal. When that will happen I don’t know, but I’m looking for it.”

“Mrs. Chicken”


Local artist and gallery owner Jennifer Bellinger says she will give all proceeds from the sale of her painting, “Mrs. Chicken,” to the Wood River Animal Shelter to help mitigate costs associated with their current and future mud problems related to the Beaver Creek Fire. “The purchaser will have a beautiful painting and be helping a good cause, too,” said Bellinger. Prospective buyers can see the oil painting at Bellinger’s gallery at 511 E. 4th St. in Ketchum.

A Bale or Two The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley plans to create a temporary diversion of potential mudslides using straw bales. It’s looking for donations of straw, discounted straw and donations of money to buy straw. To help, call 208-788-4351. The shelter plans to hold a volunteer party to construct the temporary water barrier today. They will meet at 10:30 a.m. Wed. to shovel out kennels, move straw bales and disassemble kennels. To help, email

Luncheon Gives Scholars a Leg Up STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


harlie Rivera is embarking on his second year at Idaho State University where he is studying to be a physician’s assistant. When finished, the 2012 Carey high School graduate wants to return to the Wood River Valley to practice. Both Rivera—and Wood River Valley residents who might one day benefit from his knowledge—have the late State Sen. Clint Stennett to thank for that. Idaho State University and family, friends and colleagues established a scholarship in 2011 to honor Stennett’s legacy and his passion for education. They funded Rivera from that scholarship last year and will add 2013 Wood River High School graduate Rachel Conover to the list as she enters the Pocatello university this year. Last Wednesday supporters gathered at the Ketchum penthouse of David and Trish Wilson to raise yet more money, taking the endowment fund from $60,000 to more than $75,000. The goal is $100,000. “I’m confident deep in my soul that Clint couldn’t be more proud of anything he’s done in his life,” said Idaho Gov. Butch Otter, who showed up in his Wrangler Patriot rodeo shirt and blue jeans on the eve of the Governor’s Cup golf tournament. “Clint and I—we agreed on one thing. Every parent wants a better life for their children and education is the threshold you have to get across if you’re going to bloom that blossom.” Stennett, who died of a brain tumor a few years ago, earned his GED in 1973 and attended the College of Southern Idaho before graduating from ISU with a degree in journalism and advertising. He valued education so much he even toyed with the idea of becoming a professor when he left politics, said his widow Michelle Stennett, who now holds Clint’s former Senate seat. “He always encouraged youth that education was a key component to success,” she added. “Clint always talked about how education changed his life and how he’d like to change the life of others through education,” said ISU President Arthur Vailas, who added the college

“I’d have to say Clint Stennett was in my top five if I were to pick somebody I would want to be like,” said Gov. Butch Otter, pictured here with Idaho Sen. Michelle Stennett.

plans on increasing its presence in Blaine County. Conover said the scholarship means she won’t have to struggle to pay for her first year of school. Conover said she plans to major in psychology so she can be a therapist and help people out. “I think I can wake up and be happy about going to work with that kind of career,” she said. Rivera said his scholarship helped him fulfill a family tradition. “I grew up in a family that taught we WILL go to college. It was not so much a choice, but a knowledge that we WILL go to college,” he said. The scholarship money is awarded to residents of Blaine County who graduate from high school with a minimum 3.0 grade point average, can demonstrate financial need and plan to attend ISU’s College of Arts and Letters. ISU has 19,000 students, said

Bellevue’s Labor Day Parade

Chris Gabettas, the university’s public information specialist. And its footprint across the state is growing through partnerships with BYU-Idaho and a presence in Meridian. Its national presence is growing, as well— the Metropolitan Opera will hold regional auditions there in November. The luncheon drew old friends of Stennett’s like Lt. Gov. Brad Little and Secretary of State Ben Ysursa, as well as locals like Maggie Dolan who realized she had attended grade school with Otter in Walla, Walla, Wash. “I don’t remember whether he used the name Butch then or not,” she said. David Wilson said he and his wife felt it was important to host such an event because Stennett was a good friend: “And it’s important for Blaine County kids to go to college, to follow in Clint’s footsteps, if you will.” tws

Longboard Bench Honors To the Mats Memory of Hailey Teen student spotlight



or Cooper Bailey, life begins and ends on the wrestling mat. The Wood River High School senior, carrying a 3.89 GPA and a member of National Honor Society, started wrestling at the tender young age of 7. Mainly, that is, because his dad, Tom Bailey, was a great wrestler himself and has coached at every level from Olympics to peewee. Along with his brother Tommy, Cooper started hanging out at his dad’s practices in Reno, Nev., and rolling around on the mat with the wrestlers. “I first competed in sixth grade when I was 11 years old,” Bailey said. “I was pretty nervous but I was also really excited. Of course, my dad was there. I don’t remember it all that well but I think I did pretty well.” As to the sport itself, Bailey remarked, “It’s a very competitive and tough sport. Because of that it teaches you a lot about staying tough in life. My favorite quote is one by a famous wrestler who said, ‘Once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy.’ The hardest part about it is that it’s just you. In other sports, you have teammates to lean on. In wrestling, there are no teammates; it’s just you and how hard you want to work. When I get out there, all my focus is on what I need to do. I don’t think about my opponent too much.” Last year Bailey wrestled at 132 pounds. Over the course of his four-year career he has moved from 112 to 120 to 132 pounds. In the weight classes, 98 is the lightest and 285 is the heaviest. “In a match, you just wrestle once and there are three two-minute periods. You can win by pinning your opponent or by points. Last year Wood River had a good season but we also had a lot of disappointing injuries. We’ve lost a lot of seniors, so this year will be more of a struggle.” Bailey will be one of the two captains. As to the future, he said, “I’ve thought about wrestling in college but I’m not sure. I have to see how I feel at the end of the season and see if I want to pursue it.” One thing he is serious about pursuing is a future as a pharmacist. For his senior project this summer Bailey interned at Valley Apothecary in Ketchum and now works there part time.



“[Wrestling is] a very competitive and tough sport. Because of that it teaches you a lot about staying tough in life. My favorite quote is one by a famous wrestler who said, ‘Once you’ve wrestled, everything else in life is easy.’ ”

n eight-foot longboard has taken its place along the bike path near Fox Acres Road in Hailey. The bench was created by Hailey welder Bob Wiederrick, his wife Michelle and a handful of friends as a memorial to the Wiederrick’s son Joseph. “It’s absolutely beautiful,” said Hailey artist Mark Johnstone, who has championed public art in Hailey. Joseph died in January 2013 in Moscow where he was an architecture student at the University of Idaho. The Wiederricks installed the bench on Friday—what would have been Joe’s 19th birthday—in a ceremony attended by about 20 of the young man’s friends who helped dig mounting holes. “Joe was a longboarder—he used his longboard to get around town. He also created a lot of different homemade longboard skateboards. I chose parts of a couple to design this bench and my wife painted a design underneath the board based on a design he did. Of course, you have to get down on the ground and look up at the board to see it,” said Bob Wiederrick. Wiederrick even sanded an anti-slip “tape” where one would stand up on the board.

Several friends helped him build it, including Alan Barr who sandblasted heat marks off it; Nate Galpin, who helped cut the shape of the board, and Jason Georgiades, who helped with the engraving. “In loving memory of Joe’s fun personality loving heart … and vast talents” says one inscription. “Our love for Joe is endless,” says another. The Blaine County Recreation District worked with the Wiederricks to find an appropriate site for the bench. “The sculpture was built with love and placed where it is so the public can share not in our grief but our love for this outstanding

young man,” said Bob Wiederrick. “We still own it. If we find it vandalized, we’ll remove it. Hopefully, the public will respect it.” tws

–Cooper Bailey “I job shadowed for 45 hours. I always thought it was an interesting profession and it turned out that I really liked it. I’ve always had an interest in the medical field and this is a way to be involved. The funny thing is that people don’t really understand what they do. It’s a lot more than just put pills into bottles. They compound medicines into pills, which is combining different kinds of medicines, and they make ointments and creams. I was really busy and learned new things each day, like the business side of the profession. I think it can give me tws a great future.”

he French called them “annees folles” or the “crazy years.” Others called them the “Roaring Twenties” or the “Jazz Age.” The Caritas Chorale just turned back the hands of time and seized the music of that era to treat nearly a hundred patrons to a happy-go-lucky, feel-good evening Sunday night full of music that resounded with such cute little snippets as “coochie, coohie, coochie coo” and “ain’t we got fun?” “It wasn’t all Roaring Twenties,” music director Dick Brown cautioned the audience as the Caritas Chorale launched into its annual dinner-concert-dance fundraiser. “Many of these songs had a dark side. Quite a few were written as the Depression was starting. And some, such as ‘Happy Days are Here Again’ and ‘Get Happy,’ have that theme.” No matter. Lyrics like “Happy days are here again. The skies above are clear again” seemed to be the perfect tonic for attendees who were only beginning to get back into their normal routine following the Beaver Creek Fire that turned so many out of their homes for days at a time. “I asked my daughter to join me this time because I had so much fun at last year’s dinner and dance party,” said Beverly McVay, who turned out in a flapper dress, as did her daughter Maureen Puddicombe. “And I enjoy this choir very much so I wanted to support them,” she added. Rain drizzled for an hour before the party was to commence at Jon and Linda Thorson’s lovely lawn and garden on Buttercup Road. Chorale members went into a frenzy, throwing napkins into dryers and wiping down tables and chairs. But, like a weather forecaster, the Chorale was prepared for whatever weather came with an array of songs that included “Blue Skies” and “Singing in the Rain.” And by the time the guests arrived, the sun was shining in a cloudless blue sky. The evening only got better with a scrumptious dinner of pork tenderloin dressed in sautéed onions and apples and ground mustard caviar prepared by caterer Judith McQueen and dance music provided by Boise’s Frim Fram Four. The money raised from the dinner and sale of raffle tickets will help the Chorale pay for professional musicians and soloists to accompany it in its rendition of Handel’s “Messiah”

Beverly McVay and Rich and Maureen Puddicombe were among those who dressed in costumes befitting the Twenties.

next spring. The Chorale will also perform a free holiday sing-along to benefit The Hunger Coalition Dec. 14 and 15. “This whole thing started on the back of a bus in France. Someone said we need to make some money and so we decided to have a party,” Brown said. “This is our twelfth.” tws

Sun ValleyHarvest Festival Features New Events STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


eidi Ottley and Ed Sinnott have been given new monikers—that of “qualitarians.” They were given the tags by internationally renowned dietician Ashley Koff, who describes herself as the queen of Qualitarians, meaning she focuses on quality, rather than quantity. “We met Ashley in Los Angeles through a mutual friend and she was fascinated with what we were doing with the Sun Valley Harvest Festival,” said Ottley. “She’s really excited that it focuses on health and fitness and sustainability—that it’s not just about celebrities and food and wine.” The Ketchum couple’s commitment to sustainability and good health through food is apparent in the lineup of this year’s Sun Valley Harvest Festival, which includes such cooking demonstrations as “Ancient Grains and Heirloom Tomatoes” and “Buy Local, Cook Global.” They’ve even concocted a “Fit Pass” for those who want to exercise before eating and drinking. Koff, who has appeared on “The Dr. Oz Show,” “The Doctors,” and in “O! The Oprah Magazine,” will appear in three events, including a free discussion focusing on “A Case for Quality” at 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19 at Zenergy Health Club & Spa. Ottley said she is excited about the Festival, which runs Sept. 19 through 22 in Sun Valley and Ketchum. Among the chefs who will offer demonstrations is Malika Ameen, who will call on her Indian background to show people how to bake with unusual spices. Akasha Richmond will show how to pair wines with great appetizers in simple fashion. Rodrigo Bueno will prepare a dish with goat, which is very trendy. Tal Ronnen not only has VegiTerranean restaurant but has written the New York Times bestseller, “The Conscious Cook,” and created the menu for Oprah Winfrey during her 21-day vegan cleanse. And Tina Ruggiero will teach how to jump-start the day to maximize energy. One of this year’s new events is a Food Trends panel, from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at the nexStage Theatre. The idea is to address trends from coconut water to gluten-free. Another new event is the Food Mavericks panel from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, at the nexStage Theatre. The panel will feature people with “incredible” stories about how they started and where they are today. One used hemp foods to help him downsize from a 300-pound teenager. Another just penned the book, “Cooking Up a Business.” “We’re reaching out to students at the College of Southern Idaho, Boise State University and the local high schools to come hear their stories for free,” said Ottley. “It should also appeal to some of the locals who have great products. They’ll learn how they get from where they are to the next level, like getting their product into Whole Foods.” Yet another new event is a free Meet the Locals: Farmers and Food Artisans where producers will be stationed in Atkinsons’ Market in Ketchum from 1 to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20. “You may not notice Ballard

cheese on the shelf but if you meet the person who produces the cheese and get to taste a sample, you won’t forget it next time you go shopping,” said Ottley. “We will also put ‘Ashley Koff-approved’ tags on the shelf to designate foods that are made responsibly and contain nothing bad.” An Idaho wine tasting will precede the popular Restaurant Walk from 4 to 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, at Ketchum Town Square. The Restaurant Walk, from 5 to 7 p.m., will feature 19 restaurants and caterers, including a few new caterers such as Sweet Crumb. The Martini and Caviar party will be held at Roundhouse on Bald Mountain this year from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21. Thos who prefer beer and bourbon to vodka and sparkling wine can opt instead for a 5B Boots, Beer, Bourbon & BBQ party at B. Restaurant during the same time. The Grand Tasting from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, will feature food from 16 shops, restaurants and caterers from as far away as Stanley and Boise. Among them, the Chocolate Bar from Boise and Kelly Havens’ new food truck. Ottley said more Festival tickets had been sold by the end of July than all of last year before the Beaver Creek Fire slowed sales. Among those coming: groups from Montana and Portland, Ore., a Colorado Pilots Association fly-in and individuals from Texas, Florida, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. “This is very emotional for us because food is our passion. We hope people will value what we’re doing and appreciate it,” she said. “The food world is changing as people are starting

“You may not notice Ballard cheese on the shelf but if you meet the person who produces the cheese and get to taste a sample, you won’t forget it next time you go shopping,” –Heidi Ottley to pay more attention to food and where it comes from. We want to have people walk away from this weekend saying they learned so much. We want them saying, ‘I had no idea…’ ”


This year’s Harvest Festival has several free events including Ashley Koff’s “A Case for Quality” discussion on Sept. 19, the Meet the Locals presentation at Aktkinsons’ Market on Friday, Sept. 20, and the Harvest Marketplace on Saturday, Sept. 21. Those with student IDs can attend the Food Mavericks and Food Trends panels for free. Passes good for a variety of events start at $240. Single events start at $10, excluding Oktoberfest, which costs $5 to $9. Information: or 208-4506430.

he hatches on Silver Creek the past few days have been less than spectacular, but this is being made up for with spectacular afternoon Hopper fishing. We’ve been waiting awhile for the fish to really lock on to these terrestrials and it seems as though they finally have! The key to fishing the Hopper on Silver Creek is to cover water, fish BIG foam patterns and use a stout 2X Fluorocarbon Leader measured to 9 feet. The other terrestrial that is getting a lot of attention lately are large black ants. The fall is the time to see large numbers of flying ants, so we expect this action to continue and get even stronger! The Big Wood is beginning to fish well, with all the access opened back up. It’s not a bad thing that the fish received a few weeks of rest in the middle of the summer. Now it’s time to get ready for excellent fall fishing with the Western Red Quill, the October Caddis and the Fall Baetis. All of these insects should begin to show up with cooler nights ahead. In the meantime a Dave’s Hopper fished in the fast water is an excellent choice. *NOTE: The Big Wood blew out today 09/02/13 from the ash left from the Beaver Creek Fire. Expect these conditions to last at least a few more days. The Lost River is still the best game in town, with Trico and Baetis swapping turns as the dominant hatch of the day. The afternoons are primarily Nymphing time with some opportunity to cast Hoppers in the seams and skate some Crane Flies. The South Fork of the Boise below Anderson Reservoir remains closed by the Forest Service, due to the recent fires. In any case, this is a great time of the season to be fishing. School has started and the weekdays are very quiet out on the rivers. Take advantage and make sure you gear up for the coming autumn hatches: Red Quill, Fall Baetis, October Caddis, Mahogany Dun and Flying Ants. The past weekend was the opener for Forest Grouse and Doves. The Forest Grouse population seems to be very strong with large coveys of birds being reported. The Dove opener went well with many hunters reporting limits and near limits. The warm days may keep a few of these birds around, so what is normally a two day season for us, before the Dove head south, may last longer this year! We are certainly off to a good start to the season!

Happy Fishing and Hunting Everyone!

elle and Sebastian are masters of clever, well-crafted poppy folk rock music. Since their inception in the late nineties, Stuart Murdoch and his bandmates (which have changed ever so slightly over the years) have cornered the market on airy, storylike songs that almost always end badly. After eight albums and four compilations, the band that basically reinvented and reimagined chamber pop has released a stunning collection of songs called The Third Eye Centre, a collection of singles, EPs, strays and remixes. It kicks off with The Avalanches remix of “I’m A Cuckoo,” and even if it’s

hard to imagine dancing to Belle and Sebastian, it’s now distinctly possible. I’ve never thought of the band ever having a groove. I’ve always thought of them as cunning lyricists rather than a band to which I would shake my moneymaker, but now I stand corrected. One of the reasons I love them is that they can play a quick power-pop number and follow it up with an almost baroque duet and your head doesn’t spin off after the segue. Tongue always firmly in cheek, Belle and Sebastian plow through nineteen songs, always teetering near the edge of twee, but never taking the plunge into total submersion. There are some songs that are almost cringeworthy, but that’s the risk you take when you collect strays; more than likely,


there’s going to be one that bites you where you sit. If you like songs with a sly wink and a nod, Belle and Sebastian always deliver. tws

movie review

The Millers are Smuggling For Fun BY JONATHAN KANE


t’s been a strange summer in the Wood River Valley, and who couldn’t use a few laughs? Look no further than your local cinema and spend two hours with the Miller family in the new comedy We’re The Millers. Yes, it’s a little raunchy, but by today’s standards it’s not too far out there. And no, it’s not a classic like an Animal House. But it does entertain and provide quite a few belly laughs which, this summer, is saying a lot. If you’ve seen the trailer, you probably pretty much know the story. Jason Sudeikis plays a small-time drug dealer that is in debt to a college friend played by

Ed Helms that is now a big-time crime lord. To save his skin, Sudeikis agrees to drive two tons of marijuana from Mexico to Denver. His plan to make it work is to pose as an all-American family traveling on vacation in a huge RV. For the family, he enlists a crew that is the polar opposite of all-American. Jennifer Aniston plays a stripper that poses as the mom, and Emma Roberts plays a runaway that becomes the daughter, and a very funny Will Poulter is the virginal son. Along the way is a chase by Mexican drug lords and some very funny encounters with a true blue, all-American family also traveling in an RV. One hilarious sequence involves an

Jon rated this movie

attempt at swinging that ends up badly. The film is directed admirably by Rawson Marshall Thurber who gave us the hilarious Dodgeball. Aniston has stolen a lot of the press for her on screen striptease and rocking body at 44 years of age. Sudeikis, recently retired from SNL, does admirably in his first leading role. It portends big things for him in films. tws

The novel is about a young city girl living in London during World War II who is evacuated to the country during World War II and must begin a new relationship with the family who takes her in, including the daughter who resents her. “Cheryl, who runs Chapter One, said that many local children have been inspired to write and publish their books after learning about Erica,” said Weiler’s grandmother, Eileen Judell.

ave you ever gazed at something adoringly for a long time? Have you ever felt a moment of invincible freedom or had your spirit lifted after swooping down a hill on your bike? I get a resurgence of hope whenever I pedal to the top of a hill and feel the sweat of effort on my brow. If you have felt this rush of adrenaline from your bike, you share what I feel. I have an unconditional love for my bicycle. I still remember learning to ride; my grandfather, who we called ‘Three,’ taught me on a long gravel driveway. It was a ‘barn bike’—a dusty old thing with hay stuck in the spokes. We took time to oil the chain with ‘3-in-1’ lubricant and pumped the tires with air. They held. It was the same bike my Uncle Tuck rode when he was a child. I distinctly remember the very instant ‘Three’ released his hand for the final time; I mastered the gravel, and swerved down the potholed drive on my new best friend. That was not the bike I remember most. That honor goes to the green Schwinn Stingray with chrome bars and green banana seat with a ‘sissy bar.’ Not a tall ‘sissy bar,’ but the shorter one, just like I wanted. I rode it to school proudly with

my paper lunch sack sandwiched between my hand and a green metal-flaked Schwinn handlebar grip. I can vividly picture and feel the perfectly ergonomic grooves for each finger, as if it had been custom molded for me. I have a new bike that I love. And it’s not the mint-condition 1999 ST-650 BMW that I rustled from a cowboy artist named Russ down off Labrador Lane in Bellevue. My bike is a 17-pound carbon this, carbon that and titanium the other thing. I won’t bore you with the fine details (I could write 1000 words) about how I fussed and primped and coddled the new love of my life. This bike is a lovely machine that rides like nothing I ever dreamed before, and I diligently try to protect it from harm and the elements. I bathe, lubricate, and swaddle it affectionately after every ride. I only share this because I want everyone to somehow feel what I feel. Call me cuckoo-birds, but I love my bike. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Sun Valley All-Mountain Champion Dave Harrison is founder of Mountain Bike Instructors of America and a Pro/Elite UCI license holder in downhill and cross-country for the past 24 years. tws

Hailey Public Library Inks Co-op Agreement with BCDC BY BALI SZABO


he latest chapter in the Hailey Public Library’s Outreach program is an initial one-year partnership with the Blaine County Detention Center (BCDC). To date, relatively few public libraries have such programs, which help inmates re-enter society successfully, and reduces recidivism. The library will provide a full range of services to anywhere from 40 to 75 inmates. This effort balances the necessarily punitive aspects of incarceration with an infusion of democratic values. It couples “the philosophy and attitude of rehabilitation with the mission and vision of the public library. The American Library Association states that participation in a democratic society requires unfettered access to current social, political, economic, cultural, scientific and religious information.” The main thrust of this bilingual program is to reduce recidivism, which lessens penal costs and expansion, enhances public safety and builds community by reducing destructive behavior. Many inmates have families, vote and/or own property. Library services build an important bridge in the return to the general population. Reading is an introduction to accepted social norms and concepts. It also builds on the idea that inmates

have options, that the world need not be closed to them. It widens horizons. The equal access to materials, the encouragement of free discourse and respect for differences translates to positive social interactions both in and out of jail. Part of the mission statement aims “to educate the volunteers and the local community about issues related to incarceration, poverty, crime, justice and fairness that are part of and affect our community, but of which many of us are not aware.” The BCDC’s Media Literacy Center will be run by the Hailey Library. Currently, there are over 2000 fiction, nonfiction and reference titles and they’re all being used, and cover educational and recreational areas. The ever important reference section includes: job and résumé materials/dictionaries and encyclopedias/GED, ANSVAB and college-prep materials/computer skills, Word, Excel, etc. Overall, this is not only about books. The library will provide “innovative programs and services, helping inmates and returnees to learn about work and employment opportunities, the arts, and to develop job-seeking skills.” This is a two-way street. We need to be willing to hire these folks once they get out; otherwise, we doom them to hopelessness.

the way i see it



was cleaning my home on Sunday while waiting for the National Football League’s first games of the season to commence. After the summer of smoke, with the pressure of developing new projects to supplement my Social Security check, plus a long period of neglecting household duties, I had decided it was time to get my life in order. The drudgery of mopping floors, cleaning walls and airing out the cabin awakened old aches and pains, which made the chores all the more challenging. But, then, a call from an irate creditor awakened my low mood of ennui. I happily announced to the dun artist caller that he was too late, as Mr. Millspaugh had passed away in the forest fire in August because he had refused to evacuate his home despite

numerous warnings… thanks for calling. My mood changed rapidly to one of pure elation. Yes, I was alive and very busy. I went back to work cleaning and by that very means began to discover long-lost personal items I had given up on for the past couple of years. It was like Christmastime again. I rejoiced over finding old letters, that sheepskin coat, pictures of new and old grandchildren, a bevy of socks and the watch my father had sold to me on his deathbed. I was alive and very, very busy. Suddenly, I felt reborn with all the hope and joy of a child eager to experience life. There was so much to learn and accomplish, now. I sat down and made list after list of plans and things to do. My aches and pains subsided like the thunderstorms of the past week. All seemed new and fresh again. At age 72,


sometimes it’s difficult to decide whether or not to roll out of bed in the morning. Retirement means no job or paycheck. It also means freedom… freedom to do what you truly want to do each day. I stopped cleaning immediately, made some coffee and went back to my lists. There was so much to do this week. How will I find the time? I’ll just find the time because there’s so much I want to do. It’s good to be busy. It’s what life is all about. You have many choices each day. Some are “have-to’s.” Many may be dismissed by merely stating, “I prefer not to.” The latter are my favorites. Do you want a long, enriched life? Do what you prefer to do and do it with the joy of being busy each day. Or, forget the list and take a nap. Nice talking to you. tws

Mourning for Exercise BY KIM MAZIK


everal years ago, following yet another knee surgery, I finally came to the realization that I had to give up my passion of running. The pain was more than I could handle and, as a physical therapist (PT), I knew that my adopted compensation patterns would have negative long-term effects. But before long, I found myself depressed and feeling sorry for myself. So, looking for my endorphin fix, I’d try to run again, rationalizing that running twenty miles a week was nothing and that it seemed like a good compromise between what I desired and what my body could handle. After a few months of this back and forth and beginning to bear a strange resemblance to Quasimodo, I did stop running altogether. But then the strangest thing occurred. Whenever I spied someone running, I found myself with a barely controlled urge to trip them! (I know how horrible this sounds, but, trust me, I never acted upon this impulse). Of course, I was appalled at these thoughts and chastised myself. What in the world was wrong with me? How could I be this angry with an innocent passerby? Then it dawned on me. I was mourning. In her 1969 book “On Death and Dying,” Elisabeth KublerRoss describes five universal stages of mourning that are experienced by people from all walks of life. Although KublerRoss described mourning as a response to an individual’s own terminal illness or to the death

ric Schroder clambered down soot-covered rocks bordering the Greenhorn Gulch parking lot, crunching the burnt nubs of what were tall grasses and sagebrush just a few weeks earlier. He came to what used to be a bridge straddling Greenhorn Creek. Crumpled aluminum foil, which had been wrapped around the bridge to protect it, lay in burnt soil turned to mud by a pounding rain the night before. Two burnt logs with large nails sticking out—once part of a bridge—lay across a creek that had turned black from the blackened soil eroding into it. “This definitely poses a safety issue,” said Schroder. “But, look, the bridge over there survived the fire.” Schroder is the team leader for BAER, a Burned Area Emergency Response team that is spending 10 days in the Wood River Valley assessing the damage that occurred from the Beaver Creek wildfire. The wildfire burned about 114,900 acres on the Sawtooth National Forest during the latter three weeks of August, impacting the Greenhorn, Croy Creek, Deer Creek and Baker Creek recreational areas. Twenty-six experts, including two hydrologists, a soil scientist, wildlife and fisheries biologists, cultured resources, mine geology specialist, geothermal engineer, botanist and noxious weed specialist, have come to walk the scorched earth and identify how erosion, noxious weeds and other problems stemming from the aftermath of the fire might be mitigated. Greenhorn is a chief concern. “We know this area gets heavy recreational use. Life and safety is an issue we’re concerned about,” Schroder said. “The possibility of flash floods in this area is low. But conditions have changed and at minimum we need to put a sign here to make people aware of the possibility of increased flows.”

Anxious homeowners Before we even passed through the road closure at Greenhorn Gulch Road, a Cox Communications employee stopped us, worrying whether he’d be safe working in an area where heavy rains have brought mudslides. Spotting Schroder and Forest Service representative John Collins, a resident came armed with her own questions. “The creek behind our home is full of silt and rock and sticks and muck,” said the woman, who was clearly nervous about the rain that was starting to fall, foreshadowing a day that would include more torrential downpours before it was over. “We could clean out the part that runs through our yard. But will it help if the other homeowners and BLM don’t clean their parts?” The latest mudslide took such a circuitous route that it will take some studying to figure out where it came from, Schroder acknowledged. But the threat has prompted homeowners to try to take steps to mitigate it, including bulldozing a big trench straight up one hillside. “We see all this mud coming to our house and we think, ‘I’ve got to do something,’ ” the woman continued. “No one knows you have to go get a permit first.” “I do feel for these people,” Schroder said as we resumed our drive. “It’s nerve wracking. We’ve already had three mud-

Green grass is already beginning to emerge near the creek in Greenhorn Gulch.

slides.” Schroder eyeballed mud that had avalanched down burnt hillsides, depositing alluvial fans of dirt and rocks. “Some of the treatments we have available to us in our treatment box can lower the risk. Could we have lowered the risk and not had any debris flow here if we’d gotten here earlier? Probably not,” he said. Miraculous signs of life We drove past the Greenhorn Guard Station, which had been saved thanks in part to protective aluminum foil firefighters had wrapped it in. But the skeleton of a burned horse trailer sits nearby. The Greenhorn parking lot, expanded earlier this spring, showed no scorching. And an outhouse and picnic table miraculously survived, as well. Already 2- to 3-inch-tall blades of grass were emerging through the blackened soil. Some of the aspen trees along the creek below the parking lot sported a vibrant green. Others sported beige leaves that had been singed by fire. They and some of the Douglas fir that still sport green will probably make it, along with the singed willows bordering the creek, Schroder said. And a surprising amount of burnt sagebrush will make it, as well. “Trees are adapted to make it through the fire,” he said. Just a few days into their assessment, Schroder and others have already found bridges and culverts clogged by debris and debris piled upon roads. Warm Springs Creek had turned black with burned earth flowing into it. Culturally, the fire has exposed some interesting features at area mines. Recovery will be faster in the valley bottom and slower on the forested hills, Schroder said. Areas that have needles on top of the soil will recover quicker than those with bare soil. Soil that burned hotter lost organic material and is now

water repellant. That will lead to increased runoff. “You’re looking at least three to five years of increased mud flows and erosion off the hills,” Schroder said. “You may have to remove debris from the trails time and again.” Schroder, who worked on the West Fork Complex Fire near his home in Colorado earlier in the summer, said the burn severity from the Beaver Creek Fire was worse. But it didn’t have as much impact on private property. BAER will recommend treatments and request funding for those treatments. Generally, such requests are approved, Schroder said. Treatments include planting grass to prevent the introduction of noxious weeds, installing water or erosion control devices and seeding or planting trees for erosion control. “The important thing to remember is that this will grow back,” said Collins. “Remember the Castle Rock Fire? It didn’t take long at all before new life emerged.”


The Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team will be holding a public meeting on Thursday, Sept 12 at 7 p.m. at the Wood River High School Performing Arts Theatre in Hailey. The purpose of the meeting this meeting is to provide the public with a summary of the findings from the BAER assessment, and to discuss the treatments that the Forest Service will be submitting for funding under the BAER process.

Bands, Nature Create an Uproar STORY & PHOTOS BY LESLIE THOMPSON


ixty-mile-an-hour winds, multiple torrential downpours and flood watches all over Idaho — including significant flooding in the upper Treasure Valley — wreaked havoc most of the day last Thursday. Mother Nature’s display of force seemed to fit the bill for the aptly named Uproar Festival kicked off in the early afternoon at Nampa’s Idaho Center Amphitheater. The tickets said rain or shine, and they meant it! Cloudbursts brought at least a half-inch of rain down and caused temporary flooding to the bottom of the amphitheater in front of the main stage twice during the festival, at one point causing them to pull the plug on the second stage. Although the deluge drove more than half of the concertgoers away,

there were many that stayed the storm, which lifted just in time for epic performances by both headlining bands, Jane’s Addiction and Alice in Chains. Playing a mix of new songs and old favorites, Jane’s Addiction added to the visuals of their performance with both the setting sun and two scantily clad female dancers. During the first song, the ladies were suspended some 40 feet up to the top of the scaffolding and mesmerized the audience by kicking their legs underneath the white flowing skirts that nearly reached the floor during the first song. Lead singer Perry Farrell told the crowd, “When I saw what the weather was doing today, I was like, f***, I want to put on a show for Idaho!” Then, with his infectious smile, he thanked the fans that stayed through the erratic weather for the show. By the time Alice in Chains

took the stage, the night sky was fully upon us. They took advantage of that darkness with a light show that stretched out on screens behind them and kept the audience hypnotized with moving visual patterns and surreal images. Lead singer and guitarist William DuVall belted out one great hit after another with a voice that sounded nearly identical to former lead singer, Layne Staley. And lead guitarist Jerry Cantrell shared smiles frequently with three young kids that held the rail among thousands of adults for their performance — he and other band members threw picks, drumsticks and other memorabilia to the young ones several times. Although their set list included songs from their most recent albums, “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here” and “Black Gives Way to Blue,” they blended

in many of their songs from the ’90s as well. Lyrics from the last song they played, ‘The Rooster,’ echoed in my ears long after the show was over — ‘You know he ain’t gonna die.’ It was a fitting final song for a show that could’ve been snuffed.

Uproar BACKGROUND Beginning in the summer of 2010, the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival has been touring the U.S. annually. At each city they stop in they showcase a handful of well-known bands, multiple stages, signing tents, merch booths, and so much more.

THIS YEAR’S LINEUP This year’s lineup seemed to fluctuate from the more metal-laced lineups of the past — perhaps influenced by the

PHOTOS CLOCKWISE FROM ABOVE: William DuVall the new lead singer of Alice in Chains. Bass guitarist Mike Inez of Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains brought lots of visual displays to the show. Original member, lead guitarist and vocalist Jerry Cantrell asks if somebody will ‘Check My Brain.’ Lead singer Perry Farrell’s enthusiastic and unique artistic style and stunning dancers always make a great stage presence for Jane’s Addiction shows. Jane’s Addiction Lead guitarist Dave Navarro has recorded with numerous musicians over the years, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nine Inch Nails, Alannis Morisette and Guns N’ Roses.

headliners Jane’s Addiction and Alice in Chains, both of which have been around since the late ’80s. Other bands at the festival included Charming Liars, Chuck Shaffer Picture Show, Beware of Darkness, The Dead Daisies, Danko Jones, Middle Class Rut, Sick Puppies, Walking Papers, Circa Survive and Coheed and Cambria.

The book features such recipes as Rigatoni with Spicy Chicken Sausage, Asparagus, Eggplant and Roasted Peppers, and SunDried Tomato Chicken Salad. “I just learned by trial and error,” he said. “I doctored things up and, when I made a mistake, I tried again.” On Sunday evening Boitano showed how he slices an avocado and how he squeezes the juice of a lemon with his bare fist. “Now it all makes sense why you’ve been prepping all day,” Kim Selby told him as she eyed the quickness with which he put a dish together with already diced and seeded Roma tomatoes and other ingredients. Yini Orebaugh came from Boise for the event, which had to be rescheduled because of the Beaver Creek Fire. “Originally, we scheduled it for my husband’s birthday. We’d never been to Sun Valley, and it sounded like fun to have someone else cook for us,” she said. “I’ve known Brian for a long time and it’s fun to see him from this vantage point,” added Carol Cleve, whose husband photographs the ice skaters. “How often do you have someone like this cook for you?!” Skaters Gia Guddat and Craig Heath—longtime friends of Boitano—suggested the cooking demonstration as a unique fundraiser that hadn’t been done before. The money raised will keep Learn to Skate classes, which last year attracted nearly a hundred skaters, affordable. It will also enable junior skaters to skate at more affordable rates. “The money we raise from this keeps us growing, keeps us moving,” said Holly Weaver, one of the organizers. “And it was the most smashing event of the summer season,” quipped skater Ashley Clark.

“Almost flawless and smashing.”

Did you know?

Sun Valley’s “Famous Potatoes” are as well known in the skating world as Idaho’s famous spuds are in the restaurant world. Members of the group ensemble were crowned national champs at the 2013 U.S. Figure Skating National Showcase held recently in Cape Cod, Mass. The routine included the skaters breaking out of tin foil to “2001 Space Odyssey.” Dressed as spuds, the girls performed air guitar, in seal flipping motions and cartwheels on ice. One skater slid through the legs of the others while a couch potato rolled off the couch in the six-minute routine choreographed by Gia Guddat, Craig Heath and Holly Wheeler. Skaters skated to the B-52’s “Living in Your Own Private Idaho” and Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” during their shake and bake routine. “They were the best group I’ve ever seen perform for National Showcase and I’ve been an official at every National Showcase,” said U.S. Figure Skating judge Morry Stillwell. “Ohmygod, it was so much fun,” said skater Isabella Bourret. Bourret’s mother Lucy Bourret built the costumes—no small feat, she acknowledged, considering the foil was 4 feet wide and the potato skins themselves 30 inches long, and big. Team members, ages 10 through 16, were Alex Stuessi, Blake Letourneau, Alexandra Harten, Joyce Chan, Antonia Avery, Lane Letourneau, Emma Stuessi, Isabella Bourret and Katie Peters. In addition, Alexandra Harten was crowned novice light entertainment champ; Joyce Chan, intermediate dramatic champ; and Blake Letourneau, pre-juve-

Brian Boitano says this is one of his “totally go-to appetizers.” Not only does it taste good, but it is packed with protein, vitamins and fiber. 2 whole-wheat pitas 7 Tbsp. olive oil, divided 1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced Salt 1 15-oz. can artichoke hearts, packed in water and drained 1 15.5-oz. can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed Juice of 1 lemon, divided Ground pepper 1 clove garlic, chopped 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice each pita in half to make four halfmoons. Brush each with olive oil. Slice each half-moon into six wedges. Spread the wedges on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven for 8 minutes. Let cool. Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Add sliced onion, season with salt; cook until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Stir every few minutes. While the onions are cooking, add half of the artichoke hearts and twothirds of the beans to a food processor. Add 2 Tbsp. of oil and half the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth and set aside. Chop the remaining hearts. When the onions are done, turn the heat to medium and add 1 Tbsp. oil to the pan, along with the garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook 1 minute. Add the remaining beans, artichoke hearts and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until heated through; remove from the heat and let cool. Spread the puree on each pita wedge and top each wedge with a dollop of the onion, bean and artichoke mixture.

The menu includes Schnitzel, Goulash, Sauerbraten and other dishes with a slightly different twist than entrees on the lunch menu. Head Chef John Murcko said Sun Valley is extending its hours at the Austrian-flavored café in response to requests from diners. It will offer a different theme than Gretchen’s with its comfort food and Trail Creek Cabin with its Rocky Mountain cuisine. Now, Murcko plans to redo the menu at Warm Springs Lodge to appeal to the ski racers that frequent that side of the mountain. He also plans to fine-tune the menu at the Roundhouse in time for the winter season. tws

More Ideas for Hagerman Corn BY MARGOT VAN HORN


t’s hard to resist all of that wonderful Hagerman corn Atkinsons’ is displaying, isn’t it? And so well priced! Well, at least I have a hard time passing by without picking up several ears. So, here’s another corn recipe that you can try and enjoy. This is a dish you can serve at any time of the day, so don’t think only breakfast. Hagerman Corn Omelet 2-3 servings Ingredients: 4 eggs, beaten with a tad bit of milk or cream 1 or 2 ears of corn 2 corn tortillas, sliced into strips—about 1-inch wide 1 jalapeño pepper, diced with the seeds if you like heat, or without seeds if you don’t want the heat 1-2 Tbsp. olive oil 1 Tbsp. butter (optional) Salt to taste (optional)

FREE classified


2-3 oz. jack, cheddar or mixed Mexican cheese—grated or finely shredded Salsa Cilantro (optional) Directions: Cut the corn off the cob. I don’t know how you do this, but I put the ear of corn upright in a bowl to catch all of the kernels. Combine the kernels with the diced jalapeño. In a hot skillet, add the olive oil and cook the tortilla strips for several minutes, stirring occasionally until they are nice and crisp, like a homemade Frito should look like. In another skillet or omelet pan, add some olive oil, or butter if you prefer, and add the corn/ jalapeño mixture. Sprinkle with a bit of salt if you choose and sauté them for a minute or two until they are softened. Then add the tortilla strips. Pour the egg mixture on top of everything and tilt the pan slightly to let the uncooked eggs

spill over to the outer side of the pan and cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes. At this point, 90 percent of your egg should be cooked. Add the grated cheese on the other side of the omelet. Then fold your omelet over and flip it by rolling it gently toward the folded side. As the cheese melts, the rest of the egg will cook. Serve the omelet on top of some good chunky salsa (homemade, with some of those yummy Hagerman tomatoes, of course, is the best) and garnish with plenty of cilantro if you choose.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, Now that I bought a new car, I can't wait to sell my old one. It's been okay mechanically, however I've had nothing but bad luck since the day I bought it. On the day that I drove it home, I got a speeding ticket. A week later I drove my girlfriend home, and she broke up with me. Then, there are the countless parking tickets. I'm convinced it raises a red flag whenever I park it on the street. I've advertised it for sale, but continue to drive it until I can find a buyer. When two people called and wanted to come look at it the next day, I accidentally ran into a skunk that night. The little guy got away unharmed, but I can't say the same for my car. It smells horrible when you're outside the car! The buyers who came left immediately. I've washed the car, but it still has an odor. Any suggestions on how to remove the skunk smell and change my luck?

Fast Facts Saving Lives

It's fairly common for a small animal to run out in front of your vehicle. In fact, its estimated that small vertebrae animals are killed by automobiles at a rate of one every 11.5 seconds. Considering we have almost 4 million miles of road and more than 226 millions registered vehicles, small animals have a lot of cars to avoid. Next time you see a critter crossing the road, slow down and see if you can avoid adding him to the statistics.

Duane “Cash” Holze & Todd “Carry” Holze 09/08/13 ©The Classified Guys®

Washed Up more likely that you're the culprit. You can call the first parking ticket a mistake, but if you have a stack of them, it's probably not the car’s fault! Cash: The skunk smell, however, is an easier problem to solve. Since you mentioned scaring the skunk while driving, it's likely that he sprayed underneath the car. Carry: Skunks typically spray only a few tablespoons of a yellow oily secretion. Since the undercarriage of your car is mostly metal, the oil should not absorb into the material. It's more likely that the smell has seeped into the dirt and grime on the undercarriage. Cash: Now since you can't soak your car in tomato juice, spray the

undercarriage with a strong concentration of dish soap and hot water. Use a strong sprayer that will reach into all the crevasses. Allow some time for the detergent to break down the oils. Carry: Then, use a garden hose or a small power washer to rinse off the entire undercarriage. This should alleviate most of the problem, although you may need to repeat the process. Cash: Make sure to reach all the infected areas like the wheel wells, suspension parts and the back of the tires. Carry: A good washing and a few days of fresh air should solve your problem. Then you can work on changing your luck.

Who has time to wash their car? That's how most people feel according to a survey by the International Car Wash Association. Their research shows that 52% of American car owners wash their cars less than once a month and 15% never wash their vehicles. If you're one of those who like to do it yourself, use a detergent specific for washing automobiles. Laundry detergent or dish soap could damage your car's finish. Rinse your sponge often to prevent excess dirt from scratching the paint. And when you're done with the outside, consider tackling the interior. •

Reader Humor Smoke Screen

When I only had $500 to spend, I knew I wouldn't get a top of the line used car. I met one gentleman who was determined to sell me his old sedan and went along with me on a test drive. He started telling me about all the great features of the car and how well it handled on the highway. From the sounds of the engine though, the car seemed like it was on its last legs. I pulled up to a stop sign and it let out a big bang and a huge puff of smoke. The gentleman, still being a true salesman, said, "I know it runs rough, but this car gets 32 miles per gallon." As I watched the blue smoke engulf the car, I turned to him and laughed, "Is that gas or oil?" (Thanks to Grace M.)

510 thank you notes We would like to sincerely thank the City Council of Ketchum for recognizing us on Tuesday, September 3rd. This year we had the opportunity to be part of Cindy’s Red Barn Team for Wagon Days. The Red Barn is the overnight campground for animals and parade participants who travel a long distance to participate in our parade. Over the four days we spent volunteering in the campground, at the picnic and VIP seating, we were supported by outstanding adults who helped us learn and do our jobs: Julie Lynn, Tracey Thomas, Rick Jesinger, Susan McCarthy and Karen McNary. We would like to especially thank our new Idaho State Representative, Steve Miller who pitched in at the Red Barn for four days and went over with us to cook pancakes at the Papoose Club breakfast on Sunday. When we could not stay to help them clean up because we had to tear down the campground, Representative Miller remained and helped scrub griddles. Thanks to all of our Red Barn mentors, the City of Ketchum and Heather Lamonica Deckard for this chance. We look forward to returning to the Red Barn next year and the year thereafter as we work on the Girl Scout Gold Award and continue to earn the U.S. Congressional Award Gold Medal. Hadley Cabitto, Erica Lynn, Lily Worst 9th Grade Students, Wood River High School Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2013 Papoose Club Pancake Breakfast such a success! The event was a tremendous post-fire rallying point for the Wood River Valley community and a feel-good event all the way around. In addition to the 1,467 breakfasts served over the weekend, Papoose Club served 43 complimentary breakfasts to Beaver Creek firefighters and first responders, thanks to Jan Hoffbuhr Williams. Special thanks to our guest pancake flippers Ketchum Mayor Randy Hall, Ketchum Fire Chief Mike Elle, Representative Steve Miller, and Lt. Governor Brad Little. We are also grateful to our generous sponsors: Sun Valley Insurance, Atkinsons’ Market, Power Engineers, Starbucks, Marketron, St. Luke’s Clinic - Pediatrics, Les Schwab Tires, Blaine County Title, and Donahue-McNamara Steel LLC. Additionally we wish to thank Brent Barsotti, Blaine County School District, Church of the Big Wood, City
