Last year’s Fun Run Winners.

Meals on Wheels 5K Fun Run/Walk BY KAREN BOSSICK


ometimes the Meals on Wheels truck looks like a little road runner beep-beeping its way around the Valley as it delivers more than 15,000 meals a year to housebound seniors and disabled people. This Saturday, children and adults are being asked to do a little road running—or walking—themselves in the Third Annual 5K Fun Run/Walk for Meals on Wheels. Support is crucial, as Meals on Wheels has seen the number of meals it serves double in the past year, said Kimberly Coonis, who oversees the service. The run/walk beings at 11 a.m. at the Senior Connection at 721 S. 3rd Ave., in Hailey. It then follows a guitar-shaped path through the Foxmoor and Deerfield subdivisions near Wood River High School before returning to the center. Registration starts at 10 a.m. Or participants can register early at The run/walk will be followed by music and arts and crafts vendors. Lunch and beverages from a beer and wine garden will be available for purchase. Raffle purchasers will have a chance to win one of two $1,000 or one $500 gift certificates offered by Atkinsons’ Market. Other raffle prizes include four dinner-and-ice-skating show tickets from Sun Valley Company, a month membership to Zenergy, and a Scottevest. Tickets are $3 each, four for $10 or 10 for $20 and can be purchased online or at the Senior Connection. Prizes will also be awarded to the first-place men and women between the ages of 18 and 60 and to the firstplace over-60 and under-18 winners. Meals on Wheels is served free of charge to qualifying seniors. Blaine County’s Meals on Wheels cover one of the largest areas in the state. Its area stretches almost from Craters of the Moon National Monument east of Carey to Smiley Creek just south of Stanley. One truck runs south and the other north, serving between 50 to 100 meals at a time four days a week. Chef Steve Johnson packages hot home-cooked meals like lasagna, roast beef or turkey for each trip. He also prepares sack lunches of pastrami sandwiches, soups and salads for those who request them for later that day or the next. One need not be a senior to take advantage of them. Meals on Wheels also delivers to disabled people, as well as those who have had a hip replacement or are receiving chemotherapy or other medical treatment and need temporary assistance. “We’re providing them with good

he crowd swarmed around pilots “like flies around a honey jug,” when a WASP-motored Zenith aircraft and other aircraft began landing at the new Friedman Memorial Airport on May 14, 1932. Pilot Jim Perkins hopes the crowd will do some swarming again this week when the World War II B-17G bomber dubbed “Sentimental Journey” takes up residence at Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey. The bomber—one of five such bombers still flying—is offering tours and rides Thursday through Monday in conjunction with the airport’s 80th birthday celebration on Saturday. The free Airport Appreciation Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. will include free burgers and drink, airplane rides, kids’ activities, giveaways and a display of vintage and unique airplanes, including experimental and home-built aircraft. “The Flying Fortress was here five years ago for the airport’s 75th anniversary,” said Friedman Airport Manager Rick Baird. “For air buffs, getting close to and talking to pilots is pretty exciting.” Friedman Memorial Airport, named for a German merchant who had died six years earlier, was dubbed “the most beautiful airport in Idaho” in the Hailey Times when the airport was dedicated on Saturday, May 14, 1932. “The view of the valley from the south end is one of entrancing beauty,” the article said. Boy Scouts had hauled rocks away from

the three-quarter-mile runway. Others had filled in ditches. Pilots didn’t have any trouble locating the runway since it was located along what was then Highway 93 and the Oregon Short Line railroad tracks. The unexpected arrival of so many “birdmen” from around the nation, state and neighboring cities “aroused the greatest enthusiasm… all were enthusiastic in praise of the beautiful airport,” the article said. The pilots were greeted by a great compass a hundred feet in diameter and Hailey spelled out with whitewashed rocks. Johnny Bolliger’s improvised band provided music while others intoned Walt Whitman’s “O Pioneers” and three air bombs were fired. A former Chief Justice was among the speakers. The airport would accommodate those who “live farther back in the interior,” prophesized one pilot, recounting how injured miners and the snowbound had been rescued by air in other parts of the state. “Of special interest to the citizens of Hailey was the fact that the airport is practically in town,” said Perkins, noting the irony of how yesterday’s citizens welcomed the airport’s proximity while some today would prefer to move it. “The message to me is the significance of this airport opening.” “It’s important to the community’s economic well-being,” agreed Baird. “It’s a very busy mountain airport by anybody’s standards.” Indeed, the airport has always been

acknowledged to be the second busiest airport in Idaho though the 210 acres it sits on is considered relatively small compared with the average airport, which sits on 600 acres, said Mike Rasch, who manages Atlantic Aviation. Atlantic Aviation, which sits south of the commercial airport, handles general aviation, such as private aircraft, Federal Express, firefighting aircraft, and air ambulance. It’s one of the busiest fixed-based operations in the country, especially in early July when Herbert Allen invites hundreds of the world’s top business, political and media leaders to his Allen and Company confab at Sun Valley. Atlantic Aviation’s 65 staff members will field up to 130 Gulfstream and other jets in a single day during that week. “Valets” park so many jets they look like a gaggle of playing jacks from the air. The staff greets the arrivals with free newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal, USA Today and The Weekly Sun. They offer milk bones for their dogs and accept linen to wash in their industrial machines. And they take orders for take-out from Cristina’s, Full Moon Catering, Lorna Kolash and others that will be ready for the aircraft owners when they depart. Atlantic Aviation’s 2600-square-foot hangar is designed to withstand five feet of snow on the roof, a wind shear and an earthquake at the same time. Its steel girders are an inch thick compared with other hangars, which have

Sun Valley Center Cart Dash and Street Party STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


lizabeth Larocca and Tracy Smith are gearing up for the race of their

lives. They’ll have five minutes to pile up the most expensive cartload of merchandise at Main St. Market. The two will comprise one of three teams competing for a $5,000 Main St. Market gift certificate in the Sun Valley Center for the Arts’ CART Dash. They’ll be competing on behalf of Beth Rohe, who won the opportunity in a raffle but will be out of town during the event. “I picked them because they know how to move!” said Rohe. The CART Dash takes place at 6 p.m. Saturday—right in the middle of a street party hosted by Main Street Market. Food and beverages will be served and Main St. Market and the Sun Valley Center for

the Arts will give away prizes, including a case of wine from The Center’s “cellar,” concert and lecture tickets and coupons and free products from Zou 75, Cristina’s, Idaho’s Bounty, MSM Gift Certificates, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, The Chocolate Moose, Sun Valley Candle and Ketchum Cookies. Two teams have already been selected for the CART Dash— Nikki Greenig won the live lot at the Sun Valley Wine Auction in July and Beth Rohe won the raffle. A third team will be selected in a free drawing held the evening of the event. Larocca says she hasn’t started training for the event. Nor has she been in a race before this. But she’s beginning to feel the pressure as the CART Dash draws nigh. “I can shop,” she said, offering up something that’ll get her competitors to sweating. “I can tws definitely shop.”

Elkins, 56, crossed the finish line of the LoToJa Bicycle Classic—a 206-mile race from Logan, Utah, to Jackson Hole, Wyo., in 10 hours, 34 minutes and 29 seconds. He placed sixth in his age/ class, gaining 9,738 feet and climbing three mountains in the first 110 miles. This year’s race was marked by tragedy when a Mesa, Ariz., cyclist died after crashing on a Highway 89 bridge eight miles south of Jackson and falling 35 feet into the Snake River. The water was a foot deep at that point. The Teton County sheriff said he believed the man swerved to miss a pothole and lost control of his bicycle.

he birds are arriving in the Habitat, dozens at a time, the same species, day after day. Each day I say, ‘I hardly knew ye.’ They’re on the move south, and they are feasting on the sunflowers and a few other seed heads on Labor Day weekend, a classic marker of transition which brought us what we in these parts call rain. Mary Austin was right; this is indeed ‘a land of little rain.’ After the deluge, the birds were on the ground looking for protein, while others found the blue elderberries. The cats weren’t out so, briefly, the place returned to its natural state, a place of good tidings. A snake or two managed to survive among the thick, ornamental junipers. When I’m out there working or just sitting, having a brew, the resident birds return to the feeder, but only to its upper feed holes, not daring the lower ones. Pets are only a small extension of the human presence that has impacted the world to the point where anthropologists have named this epoch the Anthropocene, as man has become the decisive rather than just a contributing factor to climate change and species extinction. We live in the Cenozoic Era that began 65 million years ago. That time is divided into two periods and seven epochs, like the Miocene and the Pleistocene. The last 10,000 years (the end of the Stone Age) have been called ‘recent,’ which will be

Autumn woods.

renamed the Anthropocene. That would be about right, because the biggest impact on the wild animals and climate change has been agriculture, which began about 8,000 years ago. By then, as the glaciers withdrew, the Earth warmed dramatically. Thirty-seven thousand years ago, at the height of the cold, it was 20 degrees colder than it is today; we had the winter climate of Stanley. Today, the average global temperature estimates range from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. Eight thousand years ago, 16 out of 27 large mammalian species were extinct in Europe, and two-thirds of the large North American species were gone. To be fair, we humans were not solely responsible for the declines. A recent large study of thousands of fossils and DNA remains concluded that alternating periods of warm and cold were primarily responsible for the fate of large animals, and that the growing human presence was an added stress factor. For instance, we didn’t


cause the disappearance of the woolly rhino or mammoth. Hunting has contributed to the decline in genetic diversity of the horse, the bison and the reindeer, some of the survivors from that time. Today, agriculture/monoculture are destroying huge chunks of plant diversity. Humans control 98 percent of all the arable land on Earth. We have become the deciders, far past the quaint ideas of ‘stewardship.’ In today’s debates, we often hear that it’s been warmer before, and there have been much higher concentrations of atmospheric C02. True. Three hundred million years ago, just a tad before our time, the average temperature was 72 degrees and the CO2 was 150 parts/million—four times today’s levels. The continents were grouped around the equator (Pangea) and they were covered with vegetation which became today’s peat and fossil fuels. Today is not yesterday. Genetic diversity and migration have been the survival tools of the biosphere. There are 7 billion of us, and we have nowhere to go. Genetic adaptability has been drastically reduced among all the living—and that’s the best way species cope with the changes nature generously doles out. Habitats have been mutilated, shattered into little pieces, or eliminated. It is no wonder my primordial instincts had me start the Habitat, a defiant anachronism in today’s tws world.

echargeables versus dry cells, NiMH, NiCad, lithium ion… what choices respect the environment as well as your pocketbook? This twopart series will inform you, as well as offer tips on what to use when, and how to make them all last longer. Using rechargeable batteries is the best environmental practice, because one rechargeable suffices for a pile of non-rechargeable batteries. In practice, spring for rechargeables in situations where they will do the most good: in devices that draw moderate to high current and get at least moderate use. Among these devices are video game controllers, cell phones, laptops, and digital cameras. Buy good quality rechargeable batteries (Duracell has the slowest drain time among common brands), and use a slow charger, not a rapid charger, for longest charge life. For all around use, NiMH batteries have top performance ratings and are free of toxic heavy metals. Rechargeable alkaline batteries are the cheapest option, but poor lifetime and performance make them bad choices. Lithium batteries perform fabulously, but are very expensive, and require special chargers. Regular non-rechargeable alkaline batteries make more sense, and “cents,” in low-current situations like alarm clocks and TV remotes, or for gadgets like flashlights, since rechargeables might not hold the charge until the next time the device is used. Whatever the battery, be sure to recycle! Next week: how to make battery charges last longer. Have a question or want to write your own ERCbeat?

Library Offers Free Screening Tuesday

when you can find us here

Mon– Friday 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Copy Editor:

The Community Library will present a free screening of “Barber of Birmingham: Foot Soldier of the Civil Rights Movement” at 6 p.m. Tuesday. The 2012 Academy Award nominee for Best Documentary Short focuses on James Armstrong’s barbershop, which was a hub for the Civil Rights Movement, serving customers like Martin Luther King, Jr. Armstrong, now in his 80s, helped desegregate schools and organize voting rights marches, in addition to giving haircuts to Civil Rights leaders. That movie will be followed up Wednesday, Sept. 19, with a presentation by Professor Donald Johanson, the American paleoanthropologist who discovered Lucy, the 3.2-millionyear-old fossil of a female skeleton in Ethiopia that caused some to change their understanding of human origins.

Sentimental Journey, Appreciation Day BY KAREN BOSSICK


quarter-inch to half-inch-thick girders. Inside the 9,600-squarefoot building, personnel track flights—only 30 percent of smallaircraft owners call ahead to say they’re coming. Many call five minutes out to instruct Atlantic Aviation personnel to have a car waiting for them. As manager, Rasch has watched some of the top leaders from around the world, as well as some of the most revered celebrities of the film, music and sports world set foot on his turf. And he’s accumulated a wealth of not-so-tall tales, including one of a disturbing call his customer service representative at what was then Sun Valley Aviation received in the early 1990s. The caller on the other end of the collect call informed the representative that he had placed a bomb at the airport and named the carriers that served the Wood River Valley to establish his credibility. A search turned up nothing but the caller called back and the police department traced the call to a Georgia prison where he was an inmate. “They searched his cell space and found brochures about our valley that he had sent for. He certainly did his research and that made his call seem very believable,” Rasch said. Many local people commute on private aircraft for work, including Chris Stevens, who owns a chain of Red Robin restaurants, and Dr. Rich Paris, who flies to medical clinics in Challis and other rural areas. Perkins, president of the local pilots association, joined the Air Force ROTC but dropped out when his eyes went bad. When

he turned 50, the former Portland stockbroker quit drinking and rewarded himself by taking flying lessons. He flew coast to coast. He flew the Alaskan highway. He flew above the sheep ranches of New Zealand. And he even flew a Cessna 172 in the bush in South Africa and Zimbabwe with the aid of a guide. “The first thing you had to do was check the strip to make sure it was clear of animals,” he recalled. “I looked to the left on one and there was a huge giraffe on the runway. My heart was in my mouth.” Perkins moved to the Wood River Valley in 1995, becoming the proud renter of one of the 150 general aviation hangars offered at the Hailey airport. He took safety seminars offered here to learn the peculiarities of flying at 5,300 feet elevation. And he learned to fly Idaho’s backcountry, which sports more than 50 airstrips in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness alone, using local author Galen Hanselman’s definitive guide to backcountry airstrips. “It’s three hours to Portland versus nine in a car—take your pick. I can easily get to the islands in Washington State. And if I get a fancy to go somewhere like Jackson Hole, I throw my skis in the plane and away I go,” he said. “Flying has added a new dimension to my life. And I just hope people who attend Saturday’s Airport Appreciation Day will realize the value of this airport to themselves and the community.” tws

entimental Journey, a B-17G Flying Fortress bomber, has been housed at the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Ariz., since it was retired in 1959. The nose features Betty Grable, the No. 1 pin-up girl of World War II. It takes its name after a song made popular by Doris Day during the war. B-17 bombers dropped over 640,000 tons of bombs over Europe in World War II. This particular aircraft was built too late to bomb Europe, but it was used in the Pacific against Japan. It was converted to a photo mapping plane from 1947 to 1950 and then to an air-sea rescue plane. It served as a mothership for drone aircraft during atmospheric nuclear weapon tests at Bikini Atoll. The plane was used to fight forest fires for 18 years after retiring from military service in 1959. It now performs at air shows around the country, with 80,000 people touring the aircraft everything year. Its wingspan is nearly 104 feet, its length 74 feet and its height 19 feet. Empty, it weighs 36,134 pounds. It holds 8,000 pounds of bombs and 13 .50caliber Browning machine guns. It can cruise at 160 miles per hour and reach top speeds of 302 miles per hour.

Caritas Chorale Entertains Cajun Style STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


he catfish sizzled in the frying pan as a Zydeco band crooned about a hound dog. Just another night at the bayou—make that the botanical garden. The Caritas Chorale turned the Sawtooth Botanical Garden into a toast to the Cajun side of things Sunday night as it presented its annual fundraiser of music, song and finger-lickinggood food. It was billed as the “Bayou Bash,� but it should have been called the “Bayou Blast,� judging by the fun everyone was having. Shellfish lovers stood around a platter piled three feet high with red crawfish, ripping the heads off as they dug into the tiny crustaceans that had been shipped overnight from Louisiana. Louisiana supplies 95 percent of the crawfish harvested in the United States. “Pull off the head, and eat the tail and body,� instructed Paul Petit, of East Fork. Petit, who attended with his wife Sara, has had plenty of experience with crawfish and Cajun parties, having grown up in the Gulf Coast port city of Beaumont, Texas. “Frognose, Tippy Toes—it’s Evangeline, it’s French, it’s Indian—it’s really a combination of a lot of things,� he said, trying to describe the Cajun music and culture. “It’s really fun. And the food—crawfish, etouffee,

jambalaya, boudin sausage—it’s just incredible. Wild duck gumbo with sausage is to die for. And Cajun music—the louder the better!â€? Petit, obviously, had a handle on all things Cajun. But Roger DeBard had a little fun with the exotic culture, milling around the crowd with a costume billed as a â€?Cage-in.â€? “I didn’t know what to wear,â€? he quipped. Guests were greeted with tall glasses filled with orange Hurricane cocktails—what one bartender described as “rum, rum and more rum.â€? Chorale members masquerading as waiters and waitresses passed out hors d’oeuvres of Ya Ya Gumbo, made of chicken thighs and Andouille sausage served in little sake cups. Brent Rasmussen, the chef at Main St. Market, fried up several skillets of blackened catfish, while caterer Judith McQueen put her finishing touches at tarragon chicken breasts, fried green tomatoes with jalapeĂąo cornbread and a croissant bread pudding with whiskey sauce that was to die for. In between the drinks and bites, the 120 guests danced to “Jambalaya,â€? “When the Saints Go Marching Inâ€? and other songs offered up by about 50 Chorale members and the Frogs of the North Zydeco Band from Boise. “This is a blast,â€? said Mary Handelsman, as she waved a bandana in the air. tws

iding the bike path between Ketchum and Hailey is now out of this world! A very clever artist has created a model of the solar system by painting and labeling the sun and planets, incredibly, to scale. On the bike path south of East Fork Road you cannot miss the sun’s immensity. Scaled to 2 meters, it spans the bike path, all yellow and orange, complete with a few solar flares. Travel a little farther south and you encounter the scorched planet Mercury—just a mere dot on the west side of the bike path. I did the math and determined that its diameter and distance are to scale. On the bike path Mercury is 80 meters from the sun, which corresponds to its orbit of 58 million kilometers. You can imagine the searing heat at this close proximity to the sun. A little farther south is the greenhouse planet, Venus, 150 meters from the sun, representing an actual distance of 108 million kilometers. Continuing south, one comes to the blue planet, Earth. Our home is just the right distance from the sun: 210 meters representing an actual distance of 150 million kilometers. This is in the tiny temperate zone in which life can be expected to occur. As you straddle the Earth it is interesting to contemplate that if our planet were just 10.7 meters (bike path scale) closer to the sun, we would burn up; 79.2 meters farther away and we would freeze. After all, as we know it, life requires liquid water. After another 110 meters one comes to the red planet, Mars. So close, only a minute’s walk,

it seems that some day soon we should be able to visit Mars for real. Up until now the solar system has been a cozy affair, with the planets within sight of each other. Continuing outwards, it begins to seem a lonely place indeed, with the distance between the planets increasing exponentially. By the time one reaches Jupiter (1120 meters) it seems incredible that this massive planet would still be in the grasp of the sun’s gravitational pull. To reach Saturn (2050 meters) one must ride past Ohio Gulch Road. The clever artist included Saturn’s rings, which has always made this beautiful gaseous planet my favorite. And still the distances continue to increase: Uranus (4125 meters), Neptune (6470 meters), and Pluto is in Hailey, just a mere speck representing the exo-planets (8500 meters or 5.3 miles from the sun). To provide perspective on how fast light travels, our clever astronomer also included a scaled speed of light. Close to the sun are two markers labeled 30 seconds and 60 seconds. If one starts at the sun and hits these marks at 30 seconds and 60 seconds, she will be traveling at the scaled speed of light. At 300,000 kilometers per second it actually takes 8 minutes for sunlight to reach our blue planet and 5.75 hours to reach Pluto. Riding the solar system one gets a sense of not only the immense distances between the planets but also the incredible improbabilty that they would ever collide. Gazing down on our tiny blue planet, the only one known to support life, I was struck by how lucky we are to tws have her.

Ellie Swanson: A Scorer by Trade BY JONATHAN KANE


ommunity School senior Ellie Swanson is a goal scorer by trade and has exhibited that on the soccer field by becoming the school’s all-time leading scorer. She of course still has her senior season to go as co-captain of the Cutthroats team. “I’m hoping to have a great year,� she said. “As of now we are undefeated so things are really shaping up.� Swanson attributes her success to practice and to her coach, Kelly Feldman. “Basically, I love to score goals, especially in the state tournament. It’s a just a great feeling.� Born at Moritz Community Hospital in Sun Valley, Swanson will graduate from the Community School this spring as the youngest student in her class. “I can’t believe I went there at the age of four when I was in preschool and now I’m a senior. There are twenty-eight kids in the graduating class and most have been together since the third grade but there are only four of us that started together at that young of an age.� Swanson added, “I really love the kids that I grew up with and we’re so close that it will be the first time we’re apart in thirteen years, even though we’ll all stay in touch. It’s funny because we all know everything about each other and, of course, there are times when we get sick of each

other. But there aren’t really many fights, even though there was a lot of drama in elementary and middle schools. As to the education, I don’t think that I could have done any better. This place is so awesome and it encompasses so many things and that’s what makes it special.� Special to Swanson, too, are the many outdoor trips that the students take with the faculty. “The relationships that it builds with the faculty are outstanding because you become like family and so are the relationships among us because you’re sharing everything with each other—meals, work, sleeping and responsibilities. Since middle school we have gained new students every year and the trips afford you an amazing place to get to know them.� At school, Swanson is one of 10 students in the Outdoor Leadership Academy, which focuses students on being in the wilderness and learning safety and skills expertise. “They told us to choose one discipline of rock, river or snow and I chose river, so I have been training by kayaking, rowing and rafting all summer and it’s been to prepare me for leading the ninth-grade class on a river trip down the Main Salmon for six days. “It’s going to be a really fun and outstanding trip.� Her favorite Community School adventure was “backpacking through the Washington coast

for five days. The scenery was absolutely incredible and since we would hike early in the morning because of the tides, it would be fogged in, which really enhanced how beautiful it was.� At school, there is also a special bond between the teachers and students because everyone is on a first-name basis. “It always seems to amaze people, but I’ve never come from a large school where everything is Mr. and Mrs. So it’s totally natural for me. It makes us all feel closer even if you may not have that teacher for class.� As for subjects, Swanson leans toward the sciences. “Right now my favorite class is astrophysics. I love nature and the outdoors so science just comes naturally to me. I’m fascinated any time I can learn about the ecosystem and the galaxy. Literature is interesting but science has cold facts that are definitive.� What also is definitive is the success that awaits Swanson in her future. tws

This Student Spotlight brought to you by the Blaine County School District


Backpack Club Helps At-Risk Youth Over 40 percent of Blaine County students qualify for free or reduced cost meal programs. There are more than 550 local children living below the federal poverty line in Blaine County, up nearly 20 percent from 2008.The Hunger Coalition’s Backpack Club is specifically designed to supplement the basic nutritional needs of children in our community when outside the safety net provided by the school district. The Backpack Club provides Blaine County students with direct access to healthy, easy-to-prepare, single-serving meals and snacks. The process to qualify is confidential and discreet. Naomi Spence, program director, stresses the importance of this pro-

gram. “There’s a core of Backpack Club children who, sadly, face chronic hunger,� states Spence. “For those kids, the Backpack Club is a symbol of stability and comfort in their chaotic lives. Knowing that they can count on these meals gives them the peace of mind that they won’t have to go hungry on the weekend.� In 2011, The Hunger Coalition distributed 4,165 backpacks to local children facing hunger. If you are aware of a child who is facing hunger or family crisis and would benefit from supplemental nutrition, please speak to their parents, school social workers, teacher, or call The Hunger Coalition at 788-0121.

Food and Fun at Community School Friday This Friday, Sept. 14, the Community School’s elementary school students will participate in Rainbow Day, an activity sponsored by Chef’s Move to School/American Culinary Federation, which works with students to create colorful recipes with seasonal and local foods. Rainbow Day is also sponsored by Nurture, a local grassroots organization (based out of Chicago) that was founded in 2008 to address and provide education on issues including hunger, childhood obesity, wellness and an increasingly unhealthy food chain. During Rainbow Day, students

will learn about the health benefits of eating fruits and vegetables, especially from a variety of different color groups. Students will be using information from Idaho’s Preferred to become experts on local and seasonal produce and will be partnering with Idaho’s Bounty in order to use the freshest foods available. Each grade will be assigned a color of the rainbow, which correlates with a certain recipe. For example, third grade will be assigned the colors green and red, and their correlating recipe will be applecrisps. More info: Janet Salvoni at 208.622.3955, ext. 115.

Muffy Davis Takes Three Gold Medals at 2012 Paralympics


Muffy Davis said that she could go all out on a handcycle compared with a monoski. And she did just that at the 2012 Paralympics, which ended Sunday in London. The former Sun Valley resident earned three golds—one for each of the handcycling events she competed in: Women’s H1-2 individual time trial, Mixed H1-4 Team Relay and a 29.8mile Women’s H1-3 Road Race.

Fishing R epoRt The “Weekly� Fishing RepoRT FoR sepT. 12, 2012 By: Jim sanTa


ith Labor Day now behind us and a noticeable drop in the over- n i g h t temps it’s beginning to feel a bit more like fall. With the cooler overnight lows and subsequent cooler mornings the good fishing will continue to move to later morning and into early afternoon. The predominant hatches will consolidate into this window and with the fish sensing a reduction in the food supply we can look forward to some of the finest fishing of the season ahead. Time of day is likely to be the most imWe’ve been having some excellent fishing on the Big Wood in this late morning/early afternoon window. We’ve seen a mix of baetis and the larger hecuba mayflies and the fish have been rising eagerly to the bugs available. Have a good supply of basic mayfly patterns from sizes 12-20 and look for fish to be in the head end riffles and in the slick tailout sections of runs. If the surface activity is lacking, tie on a large attractor pattern, (hopper), with a zebra midge trailer and cover some water. The hatches on Silver Creek will also follow this pattern of moving into this window of warmer weather in the later morning. Although a bit earlier than on the Big Wood, there’s certainly no need to be there at the crack of dawn. There will be a mix of mayflies on the creek as-well, mainly baetis and callibaetis, and we should be seeing the mahogany duns soon. Hoppers will be the go-to in the heat of the afternoon, especially if it gets breezy. This is also the time of year when the irrigation is cut back and the flows in tailwater fisheries are reduced making these fisheries much friendlier. Take a trip to the South Fork of the Boise, Lower Big Lost or Lower Big Wood for some good fall action. Check the flows before you go at nwis/rt As always, we’re happy to share our latest reports and suggest some bugs so stop by either of our convenient locations in Ketchum and Hailey and enjoy some great late summer fishing!

movie review

When Moonshine Ruled the Roost Jon rated this movie



ooking for a good, old-time period piece chock full of action? Then you need look no further than the new crime opus, Lawless. The film, directed by Australian John Hillcoat from a script by rocker Nick Cave, takes you back to 1931 and a small Virginia County that is ruled by moonshiners at the heart of Prohibition. The story is based on the lives of three real brothers—the Bondurants—who had their exploits chronicled in a novel by Matt Bondurant called The Wettest County in the World. If you’re a fan of other films from this genre, like Bonnie and Clyde, then Lawless is sure to entertain. It also doesn’t hurt that the cast is excellent, especially Tom Hardy (Bain in the Dark Knight Rises). Playing the oldest of the three brothers, he grounds the

ands like Green Day, The Pixies, and Nirvana owe a great debt to Bob Mould. Hüsker Dü, the band Mould co-founded in the late seventies with drummer Grant Hart and bassist Greg Norton, was responsible for putting melody into the post-punk music that was prevalent at the time. After going solo after Hüsker Dü imploded, Mould released two essential albums, Workbook and Black Sheets of Rain, which showed a more intimate aspect of his musical abilities. In 1992, he formed Sugar and started a new sonic chapter in his musical biography. They released two albums and one EP before breaking up and Mould returned to working as a solo artist. Silver Age, his sixth solo

album, shows the return of the sonic fury that made Hüsker Dü and Sugar such vital parts of the independent rock scene. Mould has found musical soulmates in bassist Jason Narducy (Telekinesis/ex-Verbena) and drummer Jon Wurster (Superchunk); they are just as tight as any ensemble of musicians that he’s worked with, and that’s saying a lot. The songs are all dialed in; “The Descent” is pure guitar wall-ofsound rock with the sensitive, personal lyrics that has made his music so accessible over his career. The title cut illuminates why Foo Fighters took him along with them on their last tour and had Mould sit in on their last album, Wasting Light; his relentless guitar attack was definitely an inspiration to Foos leader Dave Grohl. Bob Mould’s Silver Age shows that rocking tws has no age limit.

film in a superb performance that is both relaxed and gravely violent at times. Playing the younger brother and the film’s narrator is Shia LeBeouf, who has a breakout performance in the film. Luckily, I’ve been able to miss all of his previous work up until this and I ended up being quite surprised at his range and star appeal and think that the movie was a good career choice for the young star. The young and talented Mia Wasikowska shows up as his girlfriend, and Jessica Chastain has a small and thankless role. In another lead is Guy Pearce as a Chicago lawman with a sadistic streak who wants to muscle in on the brothers’ profits. Although his character can be a little extreme for the settings, he provides an excellent foil for Hardy. Violent and provocative, Lawless delivers on its promise for a good time at tws the movies.

t was a very smoky day and two very dear friends of mine from back East were in town. They asked for fresh sushi and love Thai as well, so I took them to the darling Thai CuisineSushi Bar because I know that Dang serves the best fresh sushi at the most economical price in Ketchum. That’s because Dang is his very own sushi chef. I also know that their Thai food is delicious. As always, Dang, his wife Ae, and adorable littlest daughter of two, Ern, greeted us with huge smiles on their faces. They came to Florida from Ubon Rarchathani (700 miles east of Bangkok) in 2000. Florida is where Dang was trained in the art of being a sushi chef as well as in the expertise of cooking and running a good Thai restaurant. Their journey to their final landing spot on 6th Street first took them to Hailey, where Ae’s uncle lived; then to South Carolina, where they opened two Thai/sushi restaurants, which they sold; and finally back to their beloved spot here in Ketchum. Dang told me that they love this area so much because of their strong friendships and support they have received in this community. Dang said that he wanted to give back to this community the love he had received in the best way

The Thai Cuisine-Sushi Bar restaurant is located in a cute, unassuming, low-slung building attached to a lovely deck that has a glorious view of our mountains. The service is always warm and friendly. We ate our late lunch like kings. We commenced with a tasty Miso Soup and then dined on fabulous sushi, Pad Thai (stirfried noodles with egg, bean sprouts, green onions and ground peanuts), Yummy Roll (shrimp tempura, asparagus, avocado and crab sticks), and Green Curry (shrimp, chicken, coconut milk, tofu, bell pepper, bamboo shoots, basil, pea, carrots and green beans.). Real green tea and a beer for yours truly were our beverages. Of course, we then cancelled all dinner plans

because lunch turned out to be our dinner. The prices at this cute little family-run restaurant range roughly from $4 to $20. They also have take-out.

As usual, make sure to tell Dang and Ae that Margot and The Weekly Sun sent you.

can’t tell you how many people I come across who, because they either don’t have money or insurance or both, go without the medical care they need and their condition becomes worse because of the delay in treatment. This shouldn’t be the case in the wealthiest nation in the world. Not only does the condition become worse, their mental condition also comes into play as day by day their condition drags them further and further into despair, which is when, driven by desperation, the usually walk through my door to try my Symbiotic Systems Reflexology and rediscover hope. Without the need to take off anything but your shoes and maybe jewelry, you can find out if reflexology will help you or not. I utilize your hands, feet and ears to reach and affect every part of your body, including glands and organs, with the intention of balancing the whole body with itself. You can discover if reflexology will help you or not by simply walking through my door located next to Shorty’s Diner in Hailey. Very often my clients discover relief during my brief 15-minute “pain relief” sessions I do at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival, the

Ketchum Art Show and other public events, giving them hope for a successful outcome in just 15 minutes. Stress relief is a primary benefit of reflexology. Pain relief is another. But trumping both is the fact that reflexology is multitasking, meaning you come in for, say, knee pain, and in the course of working to improve the knee pain, you discover your neck feels better, you don’t wake up stiff in the morning anymore, the pain in your foot from stepping out of bed is gone and, come to think of it, you are sleeping better. This means your investment in your knee symptom is not wasted if you are one of those cases which doesn’t respond to my work. Your neck is better, you’re less stressed, stiffness is gone and you sleep better. Stop by my office next to Shorty’s Diner and pick up a brochure outside my door or visit my website I’ve listed what major medical centers say can be helped by reflexology. You’ll be astounded by the diversity of conditions improved at the same time and, very importantly, at the same cost. Since your success is my success, over the last two-plus years I’ve stacked the deck in your favor by adding Vibroacoustic Therapy to help improve my hands-on work. Vibroacoustic


Therapy is not new—only the ability to own the equipment at a reasonable cost is new. Pioneered by none other than the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on 50,000 people a year since 1995, the NIH has discovered Vibroacoustic Therapy is best used as a clinically-proven, drugless pain and anxiety management tool offering reduction of pain and other symptoms of between 49 and 59 percent from a single session. Vibroacoustic Therapy is very pleasant; like a symphony of vibration beneath you accompanied by beautiful music attuned by doctors for a specific purpose which may be to help you sleep, ease the side effects of cancer therapy, PTSD, arthritis, ADD, knee/shoulder/back pain, build bone strength, increase oxygen in your blood, ease your muscles and decrease tension, stress and anxiety, which are contributing factors in most disease. All by simply changing a CD specific to the condition you are seeking to improve and the more you enjoy the therapy, the more effective the therapy becomes. Vibroacoustic Reflexology™ is what I call my blend of therapies I use to help you. Don’t suffer any longer. Clients often find relief the first session. You may, too. Please call 788-2012 tws and see if I can help you.

Golf Scramble for Ski Education Foundation Coming Soon Right now the only white stuff you’ll find on the ground are golf balls. But you can knock around a few golf balls to raise money for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation. On Saturday, Sept. 22, a PBR Snow Bum Pro Golf Scramble will be held at Big Wood Golf Course as part of the third annual Sun Valley Gathering music and film festival Sept. 21 and 22.

The fee of $95 covers nine holes, brunch, golf carts, prizes and plenty of PBR beer. Some of the top snowboard and skiers representing Smith Optics, Burton and other snow gear manufacturers will be paired up with each team. And the event is designed so that anyone can join in the fun regardless of their skill level.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation. The foundation supports alpine, snowboard, Nordic and freestyle programs for about 500 youth and is overseeing efforts to send at least six local youth to the 2014 Winter Olympics at Sochi, Russia.

ictoria Azarenka came into this Open final ranked No. 1 in the world, yet it was Serena Williams, the lone American standing, who was favored. She was playing the best tennis of her life, coming off Wimbledon and Olympic singles and doubles wins. After the first set (6-2), it looked like she’d steamroll Azarenka. Not so fast. Victoria answered, 6-2. She took the lead in the third set, 5-3, one more game and its set match. She was playing well. She seemed faster and fresher; her shots were hard, crisp, well-placed, deadly flat, and her first serves were going in. Then it all changed. Azarenka started to make mistakes. Her first serves weren’t going in, her returns were soft and high, or in the net. Serena regained the lead at 6-5, then broke Victoria in the tiebreaker when the latter couldn’t finish off some easy points. Serena won the match 7-5, and she had her fourth U.S. Open win since 1999 to cap off a summer for the ages. The U.S. Open saved the best for last. The men started at 2 p.m. Monday, with Britain’s Andy Murray vs. Novak Djokovic. The last time a Brit won a Major was 1936. Murray had been an also-ran most of his career, but then he won the Olympics. It did wonders for his confidence, but history was not to be easily won. Wind was a major factor. Serves were into the wind, or with the wind, the latter the most favorable. Cross-court shots and drop shots were imperiled. Both men were ready for it. The first set set the tone for the slugfest. One volley exchange went 54 shots, and several others were 30 or more. After oneand-a-half hours, Murray won, 7-6. The second set also went to Murray, 7-5. With his back against the wall, Djoko rallied to tie at two sets apiece. He was getting a high percentage of his first serves in, and did well on second-serve points won. The 30plus shot volleys continued. In the last and deciding set, Murray broke a cramping Djoko twice, and was up 3-0. He then aced the fourth game. Djoko rallied and won the next two, but the steady Murray finished 6-2 to win the match. It was the first time since 1988 that the women went three and the men five sets in the same event. The match tied the longest U.S. Open in history—over five hours. The Open went from a slow ho-hum start to a great finish. tws

Thank You for Picking up this week’s issue of The Weekly Sun!


Youth Apologize for Actions

EDITOR’S NOTE: As many of our readers already know, The Weekly Sun’s primary focus is on good news. Recently, we were contacted by the Blaine County Probation Department regarding publishing these letters of apology for an event that took place two years ago. Although we will not be publishing any news related to that event, we would like to share with the public what we feel to be a good outcome. After speaking with each of these parties, we feel that the apologies are sincere and that the perpetrators are making a good effort to turn their lives around.

From Chris Carnes


o: Officer Daniel Turner, the Harkins family, and the community of the Wood River Valley: My name is Chris Carnes, and I’m a full-time resident of Sun Valley, Idaho. Two years ago I was a getaway driver involved in the burning of Officer Turner’s squad car. This letter is a public and sincere apology to the community, as well as Officer Turner and his family. I take full responsibility for my actions and my part in the event. I also would like to mention I am deeply sorry for what happened to Officer Harkins’ car as well. I cannot imagine what he and his family must have gone through. Not a day goes by when I don’t wish I could go back in time and decide not to participate in the burning of Officer Turner’s car. But I did and there is nothing I can change about it. I want the community to know that I am truly sorry and will let my future actions express my apology. After sitting down and talking with Officer Turner, I found that he is not just an average police officer. He is an athlete, as well as a very calm and respectful man. I would do anything possible to be able to make it up to him and his family. However, I am also fully aware that maybe some time needs to pass and I need to prove myself to the community before any of these actions can take place. I was going down the wrong path in my life and I believe that I have completely changed since the crime occurred. I hope I was able to shed some light on what I am going to do to make things right with the community as well as Officer Turner and his family. Thank you for taking your time to read my apology. Sincerely, Chris Carnes

From Karel Kaiser


y name is Karel Kaiser and I would like to submit this letter as my sincere and humble apology to Ketchum Chief of Police Steve Harkins, his wife Lisa, and their daughter, as well as Officer Daniel Turner of the Blaine County Sheriff’s Department for my behavior and misconduct in December 2010. I take full responsibility and am completely accountable for the role I played aiding in the attempted arson of the two squad cars parked in front of your homes on December 27 and 28, 2010. There is no excuse or apology sincere enough to make what

I have done right, but please know I am truly sorry for the fear and pain I have caused you and your families. I have lived here my whole life and have never felt my family’s safety to be at stake. I feel deeply sorry and ashamed that what I did resulted in threatening you where you should feel the safest. I have deeply regretted my participation in these rash and reckless acts since the day they happened. I can understand why you are angry and skeptical of me. I only hope my present and future actions will demonstrate that I am sincerely working toward taking responsibility for my actions and repairing the harm that has been done. I have much esteem for the law as well as for the servants of the law. I understand that you are doing your duty to protect the community and the people within the community. I can assure you that this will not be a repeat incident. I am making every effort to set a good example and become a positive force in our community. Thank you for the opportunity to allow me to apologize and for giving me a chance to move forward in a constructive manner. Sincerely, Karel Kaiser

From Parker Morris


o the citizens of the Wood River Valley: My name is Parker Morris and I want to apologize for my participation in the arson of police vehicles in December 2010. I wanted a chance to say that I cannot apologize appropriately for what occurred and I will never be able to fix the harm done, not only directly to the victims but to the rest of the Valley as well. The harm done by these incidents was tremendous and affected more people than we ever imagined possible. Our intention was not to harm anyone but to send a message that we felt that local youth was being picked on by law enforcement. We chose a very inappropriate manner to express our concerns. I would give anything to turn back the clock and make the correct decision instead. However, since that is impossible, it is my full intention to make up for the harm done in any way that I can. I was 16 years old at the time of these events and clearly I was disillusioned. Since the events, I have grown an incredible amount as a person and found who I really am. Once a lost and confused teen, I am now focused on living a productive life as a responsible citizen. I appreciate this chance to prove that I have changed and that I am now moving in a positive direction with my life. My actions have let many people down and I accept full accountability for them. I am sincerely sorry to Officer Harkins as well as his family and Officer Turner who were both victims of the incidents. I apologize to every member of the Wood River Valley and I look forward to rebuilding my reputation and your trust over the coming years. Sincerely, Parker Morris tws

ing a lower payment. By locking in a low fixed-rate you can reduce your risk of getting stuck with higher home loan rates in the future and ensure long-term savings. Finance Future Expenses If you anticipate having to fork over large sums for some hefty expenses, like medical treatment or college tuition, consider borrowing while rates are low. Ask your mortgage specialist what borrowing a few extra bucks to cover the cost of future expenses would do to your monthly payment. It is a possibility if you have some equity in your home. Combine Multiple Mortgages Do you have a home equity line of credit or a home equity loan? If so, add your second loanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amount to the amount owed on the main mortgage in order to determine the estimated combined loan-to-value ratio. The more equity you have in the

property, the more likely youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be eligible to try a cash-out refinance to pay off the second loan. Whether youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a current homeowner looking to lock in on a new, low rate, or interested in dumping your adjustable-rate mortgage for a solid fixed-rate product, a gainful refinance depends on five factors: how much you can reduce your interest rate; your term; how much youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pay in closing costs; how long you plan to live in the home; and your loan-to-value ratio. Work with your mortgage specialist to calculate these five important factors that can help you calculate whether or not refinancing is for you.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I need your opinion. The other day I was looking in the classifieds for baby furniture to fill our nursery. That's when I saw an ad for a free cat that needed a good home. Ever since my cat died a year ago, I've been toying with the idea of getting another one. The issue now is that I am 5 months pregnant with my second child. I think it's the perfect time to get another cat. This new pet would have 4 months to get acquainted to the house and my 2-year-old son before there's a crying baby in the nursery. My husband, on the other hand, thinks the opposite. He believes it's better to wait until sometime after our child is born, probably years since he doesn't love cats. I think it's just a ploy to avoid cleaning the litter box again. Wouldn't it be better if we get the cat now before I'm too busy with the baby?

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: Between

changing diapers and cleaning a litter box, your husband's going to be a busy manâ&#x20AC;Ś Carry: â&#x20AC;Świth some smelly jobs! Cash: There are a lot of factors to consider when adding a pet to

the family, especially a growing family. The cat's personality plays a big role. Before you make any decisions, you will want to meet the free cat to see if it's even a good match. Carry: A cat with an aggressive behavior or other similar issues may best be left for a family without a newborn. However, if the feline is even-tempered and docile, then you could have a good fit. Cash: The decision to bring it home, though, may be a tougher one. Carry: From your husband's perspective, a cat may seem like a lot of work with a newborn, yet easier to care for once a routine is

more established. Cash: However, many people are comfortable having a pet around a newborn provided they have spent some time training the cat. For example, you can let it explore the baby's crib or bath tub, but make sure it knows that the baby's room is off limits. Carry: As your delivery date approaches, be sure to scale back the amount of time you spend with the cat so it learns to share the attention. If you train the cat as if the baby has already arrived, then it will have an easier time adjusting to the newborn. Cash: Of course, getting your husband to adjust may take a little longer!

For many people, pets are true family members. And some owners take that notion to the bank. Take the case of Canada's wealthiest cat. After amassing a small fortune as a gardener, Dave Harper passed away and left his 1.1 million dollar estate to his beloved cat, Red. A local church oversees the administration of the funds in accordance with the will. But this cat is not alone. Billionaire Leona Helmsley left a 12 million dollar trust fund to her Maltese dog named Trouble.

Cultured Cats

Cats are an established part of our culture. It's no wonder we have turned them into animated characters that have lasted for generations. Felix the Cat, for example, has been around since silent films and transitioned into television cartoons in the 1950's. Then there's Sylvester the cat. He spent a career trying to catch Tweety Bird in Looney Tunes cartoons. Today, one of the most famous cats is the lasagna-loving Garfield. First debuting in 1978, he is now the most syndicated cartoon in newspapers and has even made it to the big screen. â&#x20AC;˘



Reader Humor Kitty Count

After going on a school trip to the zoo, my kids bugged me to get a pet. Eventually, we all agreed to adopt a kitten. I found a woman in the classifieds who had five small kittens up for adoption. When we went to the lady's home, she led us to a basket in her master bathroom where she kept the kittens. She pointed to each one and told us their names. "This one is Pixie," she said. "This one is Mixie, that's Trixie, and this one is Dixie." Noticing the fifth one perched atop the fuzzy pink toilet seat, I asked, "What's his name?" "Since he always sleeps up there," she said, "we call him John!"
