Fifty-Five Artists Will Open Studios for Free Tour


Crosstoberfest Rings in 10 Years BY KAREN BOSSICK


ikes, beer and brawn will meet in Hailey Friday and Saturday when the 10th annual Idaho Crosstoberfest combines two days of cyclocross races with a craft beer festival. The races—a spectacle for cyclists and spectators alike—will take place at the Old Cutters Park in Hailey amidst an Oktoberfest-type atmosphere with live music, German brats and 75 different crafted beers from more than 20 breweries. To get there, turn east off Main Street onto Myrtle by the green Sinclair dinosaur and follow Myrtle to the end. Cyclocross racing, which had its roots in places like Belgium and The Netherlands more than 60 years ago, is now America’s fastest growing cycle sport. It involves making laps on short tracks filled with logs, ditches and other obstacles that occasionally force riders to dismount and carry their bikes. The muddier the better. With races geared toward all ages and abilities, the event has drawn as many as a hundred kids 6 and under in the past. “It’s a spectator-friendly course and a great family event—there’s even a playground there,” said Idaho Crosstoberfest founder Billy Olson, a former professional road bike racer and owner of the Powerhouse Pub & Bike Studio in Hailey. Crosstoberfest veteran Josh Ringelstetter says he always wants to throw up after a cyclocross race. “For 45 minutes to an hour you’re going 100 percent. Your lungs are seared; your legs are burning. But it’s a short race so the pain is short,” he said. “And it’s fun because your friends heckle you as you go by—they even have beer hand-offs.” Information: crosstoberfestidaho. com. tws

heets of banana stalk, also known as abaca, line the shelves in Steven Houts’ studio. Prized for their strength, flexibility and buoyancy, they’re used in the Philippines to make ship ropes, fishing lines and fishing nets. Houts mixes this plant fiber with industrial hemp, one of the strongest materials in the world. Then he adds willow and dogwood twigs, embroidery hoops, rattan hoops made from hollow vines, hawk feathers, fox skulls and other materials to create unique art panels. Some of the panels resemble a unique take on Native American dreamcatchers. Others resemble big-eyed comets or tadpoles. Still others serve as lighting screens. “I’m not a realist when it comes to my art. I like to be unique and I’ve never seen anyone else do something similar to this,” said Houts, who moved to Bellevue a handful of years ago after retiring as park maintenance supervisor for the County of Santa Cruz. The curious will be able to see Houts’ works, as well as the process through which he creates his art, during the free self-guided Wood River Valley Studio Tour from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19-20. Those who visit Houts will get a double dose of art, as his wife Janet Houts—a quilt designer—will have her quilts on display. The couple will sprinkle their art throughout their complex, including the greenhouse where they will showcase

their works along with hors d’oeuvres. Steven Houts has long had a bent for art, which he first expressed at age 5 drawing the dragsters that he saw at the Pomona drag strip near his boyhood home. As years passed, he used his graphics ability to design T-shirts. His interest turned to handmade paper when Janet couldn’t find the paper she wanted for her folded lanterns. “I said, ‘How hard can that be?’ I tried a couple fibers and came out with a crude paper. But it became addictive,” said Houts. Houts works his magic in a large Bellevue studio where Jeff Whittaker used to craft his metal sculptures. The shop, he boasts, has enough electricity to launch a spaceship. Its radiant-heat floor warms to 70 degrees in winter, allowing him to comfortably work 24/7 if he wants. He starts off coloring his sheets by dipping them in a vat filled with iron oxide, titanium dioxide, carbon and other pigments. Each piece gets five to six coats of acrylic, nearly turning to fiberglass by the time he’s done. “It’s not rocket science—it’s touch and feel as I go,” he said. He crinkles copper and brass sheeting, rolling them out with a rolling pin. He rubs rock salt on his paper. And when done, his creations, whether round or triangular, have enough relief to give them a 3-D effect. Houts is happy to sell his works. But he’d create them, even if he never sold a single piece. It’s part of his need to

Twenty-Four Year and All that Jazz STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


he 24th annual Sun Valley Jazz Festival kicks off this morning with more than 40 bands and 200 musicians set to perform at several venues around Sun Valley through Sunday. Sun Valley resident Marci Blatt says she has been to several jazz festivals but likes the spirit of this particular one. “The energy it creates is palpable, and that comes not just from the bands, but from the fans, as well,” she said. New this year: The Red Skunk Jipzee Swing Band, which draws its inspiration from Django Reinhardt, ’30’s European jazz and American roots music. Also, the Lisa Kelly & J.B. Scott Sextet, a Florida group that performs American Songbook classics and New Orleans trad. Festival Director Carol Loehr said she is particularly excited about Celebrate America Show Corporation, which will present “In the Miller Mood,” a swinging musical show that captures the sound of Glen Miller and the Big Band era. It features the Stardust Singers, Stardust Dancers and the Larry Smith Orchestra.

The group follows on the heels of Utah State University in Logan, Utah, which presented a Big Band dinner, dance and show called “An Evening with Glenn Miller” at the jazz festival many years ago. Organizers were elated to learn the non-profit Celebrate America Show Corporation had revived the Broadway-style show, said Loehr. The festival will also feature many old-time favorites, including Bill Allred’s Classic Jazz Band, the Barnhart-Midiri Quartet, High Street, Tom Rigney & Flambeau and Meschiya Lake & Dem Lil’ Big Horns. “We discovered Meschiya playing on a street corner in New Orleans. And now she and the group has won the Big Easy Music Award for Best Female Performer three years in a row and the Big Easy Music Award for Best Traditional Jazz Band,” said Loehr. Those who want to cut the rug can do so at free dance classes. Four professional dance instructors will teach the intricate steps to a variety of dances including the Balboa, Charleston, Fox Trot, Lindy Hop, Peabody, Shag and Solo Jazz.

New this year is a dance competition for those 50 and older. There also will be a Beginning Swing competition, Jack and Jill Open Swing competition for those who don’t have partners, and an Advanced Lindy competition. In addition to the free concert on Tuesday night, the Wood River High Dixie Band will also present a free performance at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16, in the Sun Room at the Sun Valley Lodge. The Borah High School band and choir will perform a free concert at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Sun Room. Next Generation, a concert featuring high school choirs, the Yale Whiffinpoofs and Bill, Shelley & Westy, will perform a free concert at 5 p.m. Saturday in the Limelight Room of the Sun Valley Inn. And the organizers are already planning next year’s 25th anniversary program, Loehr told those at a sponsor party Monday evening at Dave and Ursula Hinson’s home. It will include a set commemorating the women’s suffragette movement composed by a musician who recently worked to acquaint students at Louie Armstrong High School who

Lost River Outfitters

Talk about customer service! When Susanne Conner spotted this mom and kids walking down Main Street, Ketchum, Saturday afternoon, she ran out of Lost River Outfitters. “Why the long faces?” she asked the kids. “Too much shopping? Maybe a little applebread pudding or my gluten-free, dairy-free lemon bars will help!” Conner emptied out her garden for Lost River’s big sale over the weekend, cooking up green chile verde made with elk and venison; a vegetarian chili utilizing tomato, broccoli, squash, zucchini, peppers and whatever else came out of her garden this summer; and red and green salsa using up 15 pounds of tomatoes!

here does all the plastic in the North Pacific Garbage Patch come from? Nowadays, everywhere. One of the biggest sources is container ships. They carry manufactured goods—a result of all that outsourcing that corporations began 20 years ago. There are over 4500 container ships in the Pacific Ocean every day; 100 million cargo containers crisscross the oceans, with 1000 vessels dumping some or all of their load, or about 6.5 million tons of debris every year, into the stormy seas. These ships stack their decks six high with semi-trailer-size boxes, ready to be off-loaded onto truck beds and railroad cars. When the seas get very active and the ships list to port and starboard 25 degrees or more, the problems start. Some loads will be lost if the ship lists to the angle of repose, or 35 degrees. During the now infamous 2003 spill of 28,000 Floatees, mostly rubber ducks, the ship listed about 50 degrees, and the loads became basically horizontal. These accidents are carefully guarded secrets. In 1990 the Hansa Carrier was on its way from South Korea to the Nike headquarters in Oregon. It lost 21 containers in stormy seas, five of which held Nike sneakers. The shoes were not tied together in pairs, and six months later began to come ashore along the Northwest Pacific coastline. Because the curvature of right and left shoes differs, the latter ended up in Oregon, the former along the north of Vancouver Island. Nike refused to talk about it, and, for insurance reasons, so did the owner of the Hansa. Confronted with the evidence of over 1000 shoes, Nike finally relented and admitted to the spill. Beachcombers organized a network of catalogued sizes and serial numbers found on the sneakers, and eventually distributed 1200 matched pairs among

themselves. If it fits, it wears. (Nike lost three more containers of sneakers off Cape Mendocino in December of 2002). In 1992 there was the spill of the Floatees. Ocean current researchers Curtis Ebbesmeyer and Jim Ingraham needed to know the time and location of the spill, but no one was talking, again due to insurance issues. Ebbesmeyer tracked the tanker to Tacoma. The captain turned out to be a very obliging, English-speaking Chinese with a Ph.D., who let him look at the ship’s log. It had all the coordinates data he needed. (The inclinometer had read 55 degrees list to port and starboard.) Computers could now project where these duckies would end up, as they dispersed from the Arctic to Hawaii and the Garbage Patch. To see how durable the ducks were and whether they could survive the multi-year journeys, Ebbesmeyer bought some new ones and abused them. The freezer couldn’t crack them. He bludgeoned them with a hammer to make them sink. Nope. He then sliced them open to let water in, but they still wouldn’t sink. Fifty-two cycles in a dishwasher—no problem. This proved their indestructibility. They were better than the Eveready bunny. High in the water, the wind pushed them to twice the speed of the currents, or about 7 mph. They survived a journey across the North Pole ice, going about 1 mph, and ended up in Greenland and the North Atlantic. The duckies proved invaluable to oceanic research, and they were also the canaries-in-a-coalmine of oceanic garbage. Two good books on the subject: Moby Duck, by Donovan Hohn, and Washed Up—The Curious Journeys of Flotsam and Jetsam, by Skye Moody. tws

ecycling is simple, free, and important for our community. We here at 5B Recycles can’t shout loud enough about how much we appreciate Blaine County citizens who put their used items in the correct place. But… we need to talk about a few housekeeping items, so today we are going to highlight two recycling best practices: • In an average week, the Ohio Gulch Recycling Center bales 7.5 tons of cardboard— which means 7.5 tons of stuff that is kept out of your landfill! When recycling cardboard, please be sure to empty the container. Remove any packaging, Styrofoam, bubblewrap, etc. When our Ohio Gulch Recycling Center staff comes across packing in cardboard, they have to shut down the sorting machine, sort through the 10-foot-tall pile of cardboard, remove the offending items, and climb back on the sorting machine to continue sorting and baling. Let’s make the process easier for everyone and remove any packaging before recycling cardboard. • Aluminum/tin is a precious commodity in the recycling world. We love when it comes into the Ohio Gulch Recycling Center. When recycling cans, please rinse them out. Often we receive cans half full of food— which rots, collects bugs, and contaminates other items. More often than not, the residue is so caked on, the can needs to be thrown away! We don’t want to name names, but restaurants (some, not all) are our worst offenders! Please empty and rinse cans before recycling them. These two simple suggestions will make things go that much more smoothly at the Ohio Gulch Recycling Center. Thank you for recycling. Check out 5brecycles. org to learn how to be successful at recycling in Blaine County. tws

amboo flooring is currently very popular because of its aesthetics and its “green”

reputation, and the market is growing as fast as the proverbial bamboo shoot. Let’s take a step back from bamboo’s cool hype to consider some other factors. Since the growth rate of this member of the grass family is more than 20 times that of wood, bamboo production has become an economic powerhouse in countries like China. In many places, forests are stripped so that bamboo can be cropped, then farmers add unnecessary fertilizers and pesticides to speed up the already breathtaking growth rate. In addition, bamboo strips are commonly sealed with formaldehyde-based chemicals in the manufacturing process. There are certainly farmers growing responsibly, and manufacturers transforming bamboo into flooring sustainably, but as neither a sustainability certification standard nor a fair trade designation exist for bamboo flooring, the consumer must bear the brunt for making a responsible choice. There is now one bamboo brand of flooring certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), and that is Plyboo. Plyboo uses only MOSO (or timber) bamboo, which grows superbly without irrigation, fertilizers or pesticides. MOSO matures in five years, whereas hardwood takes 20-120 years to be ready for harvest. Only 20 percent of the MOSO bamboo canopy is cut per year, protecting the soil below from erosion; thus, although some bamboo flooring may be truly “green,” homeowners need to investigate the source of bamboo and make their own assessment about the bamboo’s attributes relative to alternatives.

100 Men Who Care Hold Last Meeting of the Year BY KAREN BOSSICK


he year-old 100 Men Who Care will have its final meeting of the year at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 22, at the Sawtooth Botanical Garden a few miles south of Ketchum. This year the organization has donated $1,600 to Ketchum Community Dinners, $1,600 to National Alliance for the Mentally Ill and $2,200 to Wood River Fire and Rescue for a total of $5,400. Founder Marty Lyon says he hopes to get 46 men to participate in the final event this month so the organization can reach $10,000 in its first year. Men select a local non-profit to be the beneficiary at each meeting. Then each man donates $100 for that organization. There are no handling fees involved so all the money goes to the organization. One of the organization’s members—Mark Miller—has already started a new chapter of 100 Men Who Care in Boise. He will offer a brief presentation on how he was inspired to found it and how much money they raised at their inaugural meeting. Bart Lassman, fire chief of Wood River Fire and Rescue, will also offer a brief presentation of how last meeting’s donations were used. For more information, contact Lyon at 208-788-7462 or tws

What’s On Your Plate to Challenge Childrens’ Thoughts About Food BY KAREN BOSSICK


ur unhealthy diet and lack of education surrounding our food supply is combining to foment a perfect storm taking us toward extinction, says Ann Cooper, author of “Lunch Lessons: Changing the Way We Feed Our World.” If we don’t change what we feed our children and teach them about their food supply and the symbiotic relationship between a healthy planet, healthy food and healthy bodies, this path will become a reality, she adds. New York film producer Catherine Gund, whose aunt Theo Gund lives in Sun Valley, is trying to make sure that doesn’t happen. She’s trying to educate the children of America with the film, “What’s On Your Plate?” The film was made by two 11-year-old New York City kids, who took a camera with them as they learned the origin of food they eat, how it’s cultivated, how many miles it travels from ground to plate, how it’s prepared and its effect on our health. Nurture Idaho, which offers nutrition education in local schools, will offer a free screening of the film from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, as part of the national Food Day 2013. The screening, appropriate for kindergarteners through eighth-graders, will be held at the Community School Theater. Viewers are invited to come at 5 to see a garden that Community School students are growing. It includes a vertical garden made of recycled bottles and experiments that will test whether vegetables grow best via heat coils put under beds, solar power or LED lights.

Kathryn Guylay says Patrick/Polly the Potato plush toy will be given to each child who attends “What’s On Your Plate?” The toy is actually Olivia the Onion, a character from the movie. But Guylay’s daughter Elena theorized that kids don’t like onions and onions make kids cry so she asked benefactor Theo Gund if she could rename the toy to make it Idaho specific.

Nurture volunteers will offer samples of recipes made with locally grown foods following the movie. And children attending the film will receive a Patrick/ Polly the Potato plush toy. The event is free. But viewers are asked to RSVP since the theater has only 206 seats. “The movie talks about things like food insecurity, food deserts—places where people don’t have a lot of healthy food available to them. It definitely will get kids thinking. And it’ll get them thinking that even little kids can do big things—they can make change happen,” said Kathryn Guylay, who founded Nurture in Chicago and Sun Valley. Catherine Gund says her goal with “What’s On Your Plate?” is to address the shortcomings of our awareness about the relationships between food, its origins and our quality of life. “Most of our food is so processed that we can’t pronounce the long list of ingredients. On average, our food is trucked over

1,500 miles before we bite into it. And seeds are engineered to die out after one season in order to ensure corporate control of the food chain. In this environment, how can any of us feel a harmonious, life-affirming connection to what we eat?” said Gund, who has watched friends in their 40s suffer heart attacks, Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol—all likely caused or exacerbated by food choices. “What’s On Your Plate?” is exactly the film we need now, according to Michael Pollan, author of “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto” and “The Omnivore’s Dilemma.” “The movie can have a real impact on the way we think about what we’re eating,” added Alice Waters, chef, author and founder of the Edible Schoolyard. The screening was made possible through Catherine Gund and Theo Gund, an advocate for Idaho’s Bounty and The Hunger Coalition. Theo Gund gave Nurture a $20,000 grant to provide the potato toys and 650 books accom-

ydney Hagenbuch, a Community School junior carrying a 4.2 grade point average, is a real home town girl—this despite the fact that she moved here in the first grade from New York City and has traveled much of the world. “I just love it here,” she said. “There were periods in middle school when it felt too small for me, but now I couldn’t see living anywhere else. I have a lot of friends in New York and San Francisco and their lives are so different. Here, the kids have a real love of the environment and the outdoors. Personally, I’m as happy sleeping in a snow cave as I am sleeping in a bed. In middle school I just felt that I had been with the same kids since I was five, which was when I started at the Community School. I wanted a change and I felt that the Valley was getting to be a little bit boring. I have to thank my mom for keeping me here. In high school, things really opened up, as I started hanging out with older kids and kids from Wood River High School. I now think that if you’re bored, you are just not appreciating Sun Valley. If we feel that way now, my friends and I always find a new place to explore or experience. Just last week a friend took me to a waterfall out Trail Creek that I never knew existed. We also have cool teenagers here, and so much natural beauty. In the city, kids hang out on the street, but here I can drive five minutes and be in the middle of nowhere.

Everyone is also so compassionate here, and if you are mean, it really gets around fast. As for the Community School, Hagenbuch can only sing its praises. “I love to go to school every day. It’s a really happy place to be and I’ve known some of my classmates longer than I’ve known my younger brothers. We also have such great relationships with our teachers. They are always there to help you and they are always fighting in your corner.” Hagenbuch is also a big fan of the school’s outdoor program and the frequent trips they take together as a student body. “The most memorable one so far has been the trip we took down the Washington coast in our sophomore year. We hiked down the coast for four days and it was truly amazing, especially because we had perfect weather, which doesn’t always happen. It’s hard to describe how beautiful it was. Every morning we would wake up on the beach and the trees were so gorgeous. It would be hard not to be impressed with it.” Hagenbuch is also looking forward to this year’s spring trip. “We will do a solo trip in the Canyonlands of Utah. We will spend 48 hours completely alone. I’m so excited to see how I’ll do. I know I’ll amuse myself somehow. Many of the other students have had a great experience and I know I’ll enjoy the alone time and being with my thoughts.” Those thoughts are sure to include contemplating the exciting future Sydney Hagenbuch has ahead of her. tws

ool mornings have been replaced by cold mornings around our Sun Valley area waters. The fishing remains strong in the afternoons though and by 1:00 p.m. Silver Creek is rocking and rolling with great fishing! The Fall Baetis hatches keep getting stronger and stronger and the Mahogany Duns continue to come off at random times throughout the day. The big masking hatch out there right now is the Midge. By late afternoon there is enough Midge activity on the warmer days to get fish feeding on them despite the amount of mayflies on the water. Fish your Baetis in sizes 20 and 22. Fish the Mahogany Duns with a size 16 and the Midges can be your favorite winter flies. We like the Tie-Down Midge in an 18. The Big Lost below the Mackay Dam is firing on all cylinders right now and providing anglers incredible fall fishing. The morning Nymphing is very productive and just when you think the fishing can’t get any better, here comes the afternoon Baetis hatches. Little Parachute Adams in size 18 are a great choice along with any of your favorite Blue Winged Olive patterns. Expect this fishing to stay strong most of October and even into November. The same can be said of Silver Creek. Duck hunting started this weekend. Locally, hunters bagged a few birds but few limits. No worries though as the northern waterfowl have yet to begin showing on Silver Creek, Carey Lake and other local ponds, reservoirs ditches and fields. The hunting in the Hagerman area is better, but only because of more local birds. In our area we should start seeing big northern flights as the weather grows increasingly colder and the first winter storms begin to arrive. The best hunting reports for birds this fall have come from those pursuing the Hungarian Partridge. The Huns are being found in big coveys this year. A dry spring must have really helped the survival rate of chicks. If you have a favorite spot to hunt the Huns in years past, this would be a great time to get out there and check those areas. We have heard very little from Chukar hunters lately, but generally if the Hun population is strong the Chukar should be as well. Like always, the weather is in constant flux right now, so be well prepared when you head into the field. Always be prepared with a change of clothes, food, water and the ability to spend the night anywhere.

More ideas for Your Veggies





love my Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender (immersion blender) that I purchased at Ketchum Kitchens. I use it continually and am always amazed at what it can do. It’s not messy and a breeze to clean. Give it a try.

Veggie Potage In a large saucepan, heat enough chicken stock or, if you prefer, vegetable stock, to combine with the amount of leftover veggies you have. Puree your veggies along with the stock with a processor or immersion blender. If the mixture is too thick, thin it a bit with more stock until it’s the consistency that you wish. If it’s too thin, add some

crushed croutons. You can also add some canned, well-rinsed white beans. Serve topped with Parmesan and more croutons or a float of sherry.

Mélange of Veggies Dip or Spread (For very healthy, easy-to-grab snacking or for party appetizers to be served with crispy crackers or crusty French bread slices).

Put your leftover casserole bits in a blender and blend it until it makes a nice spread. For appetizers, this is the way I like to serve it: On a thinly sliced toasted baguette I spread some room temp or even cold spread and top it with crumbled goat cheese and some watercress leaves. It’s delicious. However,

you can also do the warm versions below. You can do the work for your guests and place a dab of the spread on thinly sliced baguette pieces, top them with Parmesan or some other cheese of your desire, place on a cookie sheet and carefully broil or bake at 450 degrees until bubbly and perfect to serve. Or the easier, lazy way is the following: you can heat the total amount of the spread topped with some cheese in an oven-proof dish nice enough to serve your guests and place the bowl on a platter surrounded by crispy crackers or thin slices of crusty baguette and let your guests do their own serving. Or, you can even use the leftovers unblended, but placed on top of some thawed frozen pas-

try, to make a Provencal pizza. For extra toppings, you can use some chopped pitted black olives, anchovy fillets and Parmesan. Before putting on the extra toppings, bake the “ratatouille” on the rolled-out and fork-pricked pastry in a 400-degree oven for about 18 minutes; place on the extra toppings and bake an additional 4-5 more minutes. Slide on a cutting board, sprinkle with a bit more cut basil, cut into squares, and serve. For easy access and printing of this and past recipes, visit Margot’s blog http://blog.

Backups To Stardom in Documentary By Jonathan Kane


n the glorious new documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, the lives of rock and soul music’s greatest backup singers are thrust to the forefront for recognition long overdue. Obviously this is a movie that will be embraced by singers and entertainers everywhere but it is also so much more. Incredibly joyous—the subtext remains the pain and frustration of show business and an exploration of why some people transcend to superstardom and others are

relegated to a backup role. The story is told by primarily looking at the lives of African-American singers who found their roots in church and gospel music. The film centers on Darlene Love—who brought the house down with her rendition of River Deep, Mountain High every night on Broadway in the show, Leader of the Pack, in a triumphant return from being a housecleaner. She also sang unaccredited on some of producer Phil Spector’s monster hits of the ‘60s and, as the movie shows, was elected to the Rock and Roll

Hall of Fame in 2011. There is also the story of Merry Clayton, who never made it as a lead, but who also laid down perhaps the most memorable backup turn of all time on the Rolling Stones’ classic album, Gimme Shelter. Featured as well are the incandescent Lisa Fischer, who has sung with the Stones since 1989, and the up-and-comer, Judith Hill. Also attesting to the unfairness of the business are the white superstars Bruce Springsteen, Sting and Mick Jagger. Springsteen accurately notes that “it’s a long walk” from

BUSINESS 2013 Taste of Thai’s Nina Chitnatham STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


ina Chitnatham has but one desire: To acquaint Americans with true Thai food. It’s why she has put down roots in America, cooking the dishes she grew up watching her mother cook. And it’s why she has opened not just one restaurant, but four—in Hailey, Twin Falls, Boise, and, most recently, Ketchum. “I ate well as a kid. And I want my friends in America to know true Thai food,” she said. “Too often restaurants that call themselves Thai put not the right ingredients into dishes. They put milk in coconut soup. They use cheap ingredients. “I use the right ones, even though they’re expensive—like kaffer leaf, which I put in my curry. It costs $35 for a pile but it’s important for me to do it right.” Chitnatham grew up in the Pattaya Beach resort of Chonhuri near Bangkok. She helped her parents in their restaurant there when she wasn’t attending school. “Thai school is much harder than American schools. There you have to carry a big pack full of books. Here, I see students carry one book, one pencil. I went to school five days a week and then I went to another school Saturday and Sunday because I wanted to make No. 1 in school,” she said. Chitnatham attended college to learn secretarial skills. It paid off when she opened her first restaurant. “That’s why I can do everything myself—bookkeeping and all.” She came to the United States in 1987 to visit her brother, who owned a restaurant in Los Angeles. She never went back. Los Angeles was too big, too busy, however, and so she moved to a small town in eastern Oregon where she assisted with another restaurant. It was there that she heard of a Thai restaurant for sale in the small town of Hailey, Idaho. She drove four hours to Boise and found she needed to drive another three hours, but in 1999 she became the proud owner of her own restaurant. “When I work for others, I do like my own business, so why not? I know I can do everything, so why not?”

Thai-ing down a place in Sun Valley

Chitnatham changed the name of The Thai House to Taste of Thai. And

One of the most popular dishes at Taste of Thai is Pad Thai, a national dish of Thailand.

she revamped the menu to include everything she liked growing up. Since, thousands of tourists and locals, including celebrities like Bruce Willis, Demi Moore and Harrison Ford, have sampled her cuisine. The food Chitnatham serves up is traditional Thai food that only emerged on the gastronomic plate of the world in the 1960s when the world became aware of Vietnam and Southeast Asia. “I cook like homemade food. I don’t cook like the big (chain) restaurants do. I ate well as a kid. I saw my mother cooking every day so I watched what she and my father did and I learned from them,” she said. Chitnatham cringes, however, when people lump Thai food in the same category as Chinese. “Thai food is more tasty—we have sweet, sour, salty and bitter and we use a lot of spices and herbs rarely found in the West,” she said. “Chinese is too much oil, not enough spice, just a lot of oyster sauce and a lot of MSG.”

A life devoted to food

Chitnatham has two sons, both of whom are currently in Thailand. One is running an American-Italian restaurant using recipes he learned from his mother, who taught him to make spaghetti sauce from scratch at home. The other is in college. Chitnatham says she has no time to visit them there—not with working five days a week in her Hailey and Ketchum restaurants and one day a week in her Boise and Twin Falls restaurants. “The young one wants to come back—he says, ‘I miss my home in America. But I have no time to visit them,” she said. Chitnatham has no time to ski, hike or do the other things Sun Valley residents do, either—not when the few moments of spare time she has are

Nina Chitnatham uses some unusual utensils in her cooking at Taste of Thai.

“I ate well as a kid. And I want my friends in America to know the true Thai food.” –Nina Chitnatham spent concocting new specials, such as mango curry and barbecue pork with spicy Thai sauce. “I love to work so I don’t like to go out,” she said. Chitnatham says she manages four restaurants with good help, including Narong Kongrit, who hails from Thailand. Her neice, Aida Trihiran, worked in the Ketchum restaurant over the summer as she prepared to study biology in her first year of college at the University of California-Davis. “I feed them good so they do good work,” Chitnatham said. “You have to take care of your employees first and next your customers.” Trihiran fell in love with Sun Valley while here. And she gained a new appreciation for her aunt. “She’s amazing to watch. She’s hardworking, and cooking is her passion,” she said. Chitnatham says her work is easy given the communities in which she

works. “Nice people. Quiet place. I never have to lock my car door. I go on a walk and everyone say, ‘Hi.’ In Los Angeles you talk to people you don’t know and they look at you like, ‘Who are you?’” she said. Her hard work pays off when she sees a smile on the faces of those who love her food. “I love that people love my food.” tws

Women have a greater economic impact than most think


hirty-six percent of employer firms are either women-owned or women-led. 17.5% of employer businesses are 51% owned by one or more women. Yet, 18.8% of employer firms are at least 30% owned by women and have a woman in a leadership role. When those two numbers are added together, women’s economic impact is much clearer. That makes 36% of employer firms that are either women-owned or women-led. When not focusing on women’s leadership role within a company, the numbers look even better. 42.4% of businesses are at least 30% owned by women. These firms capture 26.1% or $2.6 trillion in receipts. SOURCE: NWBC.GOV

What’s a Gal To Do? BY BALI SZABO


t’s an election cycle, so it’s time to get presidential and haul out my bulging files on women. Last year, with Sheryl Sandberg’s ‘Lean In’ on the bestseller list, I focused on the positive, mostly because certain statistics warranted it. But there’s always the other side of the coin, the dark side of the moon, that needs scrutiny to ward off complacency. During World War II society accepted women’s support roles in combat as a necessary evil. After the war was over, there was a concerted effort to strap women back into the straightjacket of ‘domesticity and femininity.’ It took a decade to show that the toothpaste was out of the tube. By the 1960s, women weren’t just burning their bras, they were invading men’s turf, among which was the workplace. By the turn of the century, many women CEOs, then in their 50s, got their start in the ’60s. Obviously, domesticity wasn’t cutting it, either for the full-time housewife or for the priority-juggling work/ married-with-children woman. Echoes of Desperate Housewives. As it turns out, corporate culture wasn’t cutting it, either. While half of all graduates from law and medical school were women, fewer qualified women opted for the MBA, and of those who did, at least half went to work for themselves. What happened? Weren’t those 16 women CEOs a role model? No. Was it the ever-present sexual harassment, or the glass ceiling? No. Women wanted something else. They were entering the entrepreneurial world in record numbers. Generation Y has been dubbed the ‘opt out’ generation. A lot of them, men and women, weren’t even opting in. They wanted flexibility, risk taking and creativity; i.e., greater job satisfaction. One escapee noted that ‘the brass ring ends up thrust through your nose.’ Successful women executives were conformist and male-dependent,

too formal, and risk averse. The power dress or suit turned into another straightjacket. Politics trumped performance. Also, women paid a higher price for their success: 27 percent of corporate women and only 3 percent of men had no children; 13 percent of women versus 3 percent of men had not married. Martha Stewart showed they could do well starting a business—working 12 hours a day for the mirage of retirement Nirvana, an IRA and a 401K? Wasting away in drab cubicles, counting the days? Women wanted a life, and not just on weekends. Thirty percent of the current workforce is independently employed, doing freelancing, consulting and part-time work, opting for free-agent status and ingenuity. They are digital video editors and artists, Web designers, bloggers, stock market traders, personal assistants and bartenders, most in their early 20s. They’re opting out of their mothers’ world of workaholism and impossible to-do lists. They have another decade before having to decide on children. Recent statistics show a 64 percent jump in women over 35 having children. Marriage doesn’t matter; 40 percent of all children born in the U.S. are out of wedlock, and fewer teens are having babies. With more professional women making more money, more can

bring up children on their own. Those percentages have tripled since 1990. Still, over 45 percent of women between the ages of 15 and 44 are not having kids. With the decline of social stigmas, women have more choices than ever before—no matter how hard conservatives work to put the toothpaste back in the tube. Politics and reality ought to do lunch sometime. Many of us fall in love and marry. Then what? That remains a potholed road. Thirty-five percent of working women out-earn their husbands, and men aren’t taking it well. Those women still do 13 to 20 hours more housework than men. The more money a woman brings home, the less housework a man does, because they see it as a blow to their masculinity. Men feel guilty, emasculated and diminished.  They’re not handling more fluid gender roles. Many men can’t find higher-paying work in a world of declining vertical mobility, and their college graduating rates are declining. Meanwhile, the women are angry and exhausted, and often have to retreat to ‘femininity’ at home to compensate for their success. The answer lies in negotiation, as with a prenup. Put the partnership issue on the table at the beginning. Equal partners?

Tammy at The Bead Shop held down the fort while I was gone; now she has gone back to concentrating on what she does best at The Bead Shop. And with renewed energy I have made lots of changes to Bella Cosa… changed the décor; added a new huge supply of ceramics; and split Bella Cosa into separate clayworking and painting areas. While I was in Paris last year, I had

the good fortune to work with a Beaux Arts-trained sculptor. It was wonderful to hone my sculpting and French skills at the same time! I also visited every possible museum in hopes that some amazing art would work itself into my psyche! I am proud to be participating in the fourth annual Wood River Studio Tour.

Big Wood Body & Paint/ ABBA Towing 208-726-0070 • 714 N. Main, Bellevue

Staci Thomas is the new certified estimator and manager for Big Wood Body & Paint in Bellevue. Staci has managed Big Wood for 16 months, which is the length of time she has lived in the Wood River Valley, although she is a native of Idaho and graduated from the University of Idaho with a B.A. in Physical Education and Special Education. After leaving the teaching industry, Staci started her career in marketing and information technology and spent the last 15 years traveling around the Northwest selling IT to major corporations, healthcare and higher education institutions. In her spare time, you can find Staci on the golf course or taking advantage of all the running, hiking, biking, fishing and skiing right outside his back door. Most recently, Big Wood Body & Paint sponsored the first 2-Lady Scramble at Elk Valley Golf Course in Featherville, which raised $800 for the local one room schoolhouse in Pine. Being manager of Big Wood Body & Paint has allowed Staci the opportunity to join several local charities and city chambers. She enjoys working with customers and insurance companies and keeping up with all the new standards and laws that affect all of us on a daily basis. Big Wood Body & Paint has been in business for over 31

years and has the only AAA rating in the Valley. Most recently, Big Wood has added a full-service towing company known as ABBA (A Big Wood Body Association) in order to offer the citizens of the Wood River Valley a less expensive choice for towing. Big Wood is the first to offer mobile estimating for the Ketchum/Sun Valley area. Big Wood understands that it isn’t always convenient to take off from work and head to Bellevue for an estimate, so we are proud to come to our customer’s place of work or residence and set up an estimate onsite. This new business plan has been a huge success, especially with the mature customer who finds it difficult to arrange half a day to get an estimate. At Big Wood, we also work with insurance companies in all the day-to-day paperwork, scheduling, car rentals and phone calls to make the repair process the least stressful as possible.

WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE Ah yes, these are my favorite words next to ‘I love you.’ This is a dream that began for me when I was a very small girl—owning my own fashion boutique. This dream came into being in 2006 when I made the decision to leave my high-profile position with MLB’s Seattle Mariners and build The Dollhouse. My reasons: to be closer to my family—brother Mike Beesley (former tech director at the Community School), mother Dottie Spencer (formerly of Sun Valley Rug and Tile), and my niece and nephew. I wanted—and have succeeded—in building a business where I am personally connected with service in this community. I started by writing my business plan backwards; service

Dr. Maria specializes in finding underlying imbalances that might be robbing you of your vitality and productivity. These are the same things that will eventually lead to disease and ill health. Dr. Maria’s mission is to help people be truly well in all domains of life, no matter whether you are sick now or not.

My House Furnishings

208-309-0209 • 180 E. 2nd st, Ketchum • 313 N. Main St., Hailey Two-and-half years have gone by since My House Furnishings in Ketchum—a furniture and accessory store featuring new custom and consignment items—opened their doors. Now, My House has two locations. Their new bench in Hailey, located at 313 N. Main St. between The Wicked Spud and Hailey Paint, opened June 1. Sarah Mullendore and her husband Luke have found a niche in the community that provides both affordable and stylish pieces for all corners of the home. Sarah lives by a simple edict: “Only live with what you love.” Every day, My House welcomes new pieces, so no two visits will ever feel the same. Whether looking for a couch, a desk, jewelry, or a small gift, the inventory is always changing. “You never know what you will find,” said Sarah. My House offers design services that can include entire home decorating, help with accessorizing bookcases, or space planning. They also offer wedding and event rentals on both furniture and accessories. Luke has had a passion for woodworking and his unique designs incorporate intricate metalwork and the use of reclaimed wood. He has been commissioned to design and build everything from a reclaimed black walnut table and


bench set to coffeetables and bookcases. His attention to detail, clean lines and affordable pricing are just another reason to stop in and see both Luke and Sarah at My House Furnishings.

She arrived here with her husband in 1978 to ski and start a family. Says Mindy, “After many years of being an entrepreneur at heart and working for myself much of my adult life, I decided to go into the skin care industry. In 2002 I went back to school in California and became an esthetician. I was immediately fascinated by the clinical or medical side of the skin care business. I continued my education and became a paramedical esthetician. In 2003 I opened a clinical skin care center in Carmel, Calif. In 2007 I returned to the Wood River Valley and opened Skinsations in Ketchum where I offer customized facials for each individual’s unique skin care needs. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion,

nvesting for retirement can be a challenge for anyone, but women, in particular, face many unique challenges when it comes to building a proper nest egg. Consider the following: Women continue to earn less than men. Women earn roughly 77 cents for every dollar a man earns. (American Association of University Women, 2012) Women typically work fewer years than men. The average woman spends 12 of her working years outside the workforce caring for children and/or elderly parents. Women are also more likely to work part-time. (Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement, 2008) Women live longer than men. At age 65, average life expectancy is 20.7 years for American women compared to 18.7 years for men. Thirty percent of all women and almost 20 percent of men age 65 can expect to reach 90. (Social Security Administration, 2013) Women are likely to spend some of their retirement years alone. Due to widowhood or divorce, only 13 percent of women age 85 and older are married with a spouse present. (Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement, 2008) This combination of pay inequities, reduced time in the workforce, and greater life expectancy means that many women find themselves behind the eight ball when it comes to their finances. While saving and investing can seem like a daunting task, proper planning can improve your chances of achieving your financial goals. If you’re married, have an open and honest

discussion with your spouse about your finances. Don’t defer to your spouse; instead take an active role in your financial future. Whether you’re married or not, you’ll want to get started on a savings plan, first setting aside money in an emergency fund, then investing for retirement. If your employer offers a retirement plan, such as a 401(k), enroll and start contributing as soon as you can. If not, consider opening an individual retirement account (IRA). You’ll also want to consider the role of insurance in your investment plan. Many investors find that utilizing the services of an investment professional can alleviate the burden of selecting specific investments and managing the day-to-day decisions involved in maintaining a successful portfolio. If you’re concerned about properly diversifying your investments in order to minimize the chances of outliving your savings, hiring a financial advisor may be particularly helpful. When selecting an investment professional, it’s important to seek out a qualified and experienced person who places your needs first and who shares your values when it comes to investing.

Tara Bella Flowers, owned for a decade by Tara Hoff Matteson, is specifically focused on floral design, weddings, parties and special events – “although we still love the single delivery to make someone happy,” says Tara.

This is where she refined her Southern charm. After moving to Sun Valley in 1980, she managed the Sun Valley Garden Center for 10 years before starting Tara Bella Flowers nine years ago. Tara also spends her winters skiing on Baldy and she can also be found at CK’s Real Food in Hailey. Tara’s love of flowers and making people happy shines through.

We’ll look forward to seeing you!

National Women’s Business Council Releases Provocative Piece on Women-Led Businesses

Women need to start thinking seriously about growth through partnerships. There are a number of things to consider when exploring equity: Consider the health of your business – Is this the right time? Consider your industry – Are investors interested and active? Consider your personal goals – Where do you see your business going? Consider your brand and role – Are you, your vision, and your brand integral to the continued growth of the business? If not, giving up equity may be risky. Consider your network – Have you fully tapped your personal connections and resources? Consider your pitch – Are you speaking to the investor? A broader definition of

women in business better captures their true economic impact. There are a growing number of women who have founded and grown multi-million and even billion dollar businesses. More often than not, these women have partnered with investors and no longer own 51% of their company. The success and economic impact of these women is discounted when we focus on 51% ownership. The private sector needs to focus on women-led businesses. Procurement practices in the public sector often require that women have 51% ownership of a company to compete as a woman-owned business. Initiatives in the private sector, such as increasing supply chain diversity, should not require

women to have 51% ownership. Enforcing this public sector requirement in the private sector may be limiting women’s access to equity capital and curtailing the growth of their businesses and participation in private sector opportunities. NWBC’s new research shows that firms with more owners make more money based on median receipts. Additionally, women and men-owned firms that have owners of the other gender perform better when looking at median receipts than firms owned just by men or women. Despite this, women do not take on partners as much as men do; 89% of firms entirely owned by women have just one owner. SOURCE: NWBC.GOV

Thompson Multitasks in Work and Life STORY & PHOTO BY MARGOT VAN HORN


love my job and am spurred on by the challenge,” says Leslie Thompson, editor at large of The Weekly Sun since its inception on Nov. 4, 2008. I say “at large” because, honestly, Leslie is a super-multitasking woman who wears many hats in her editor job at our local human-interest newspaper. As editor, she of course does work with the reporters and writers to create stories. However, at The Weekly Sun she also gets involved in the advertising as well as in the handling of the classifieds, the weekly calendar and office managing. Additionally, she is the production manager and designs the ads and weekly publication layouts as well as creating the special yearly editions that The Sun puts out— such as this one: Women in Business. Lastly, Leslie enjoys the luxury of being able to create her own articles and accompanied photography. Whew!! What to me is amazing about this young woman is the continual patience and good cheer that she exhibits even when she is in the middle of a huge project. She always

makes time for an interruption. She says that she learned a lot of that when she worked in reservations at Cactus Pete’s, a 4-Diamond, AAA-awarded casino industry hotel in Jackpot, Nev., while getting her education. “If you are not having fun, you are not doing it right,” Leslie says, and that’s a bit of what the training at Cactus Pete’s taught her. They taught her to be creative and how to be prepared for the “no” answer. They taught her how to always respect the rights of the other person and how to be prepared for life. Leslie’s education at the College of Southern Idaho evolved from her English and art studies into completing a major in graphic design, which, of course, is the perfect training for her present job. Prior to working at The Weekly Sun, Leslie also worked at The Wood River Journal for almost four years and before that at the Malheur Enterprise in Vale, Ore. There she helped the Malheur evolve from an antiquated style of publishing to today’s world of publishing. Leslie is the proud mom of her son Mankato (which means Blue Earth in Mdewakanton Indian language), who

goes to Wood River Middle School; wife of Josh, a glass artist; and mom to two dogs. She is a native Idahoan, born in Filer and raised in Jerome, and, as such, has a real love of the land. She is an avid outdoors person who revels in hunting, fishing, hiking, biking and playing football with Mankato. But she also has a quiet, homebody side to her, which mainly takes place during winter hibernations. This is the time that she cans, cooks and makes yummy jams, such as recently from hand-collected elderberries and chokecherries; enjoys making her own greeting cards; and generally uses the right-hand side of her brain. Leslie has an enthusiasm that is hard to beat and it’s contagious. That’s what makes working with her so very special. Part of her enthusiasm has to do with being part of our community. She ended this little interview by saying: “Working in the Wood River Valley is the most fun I’ve ever had. I love the diversity and the sense of community — the face-to-face conversations that happen, even when I stop at the grocery store — and that’s what makes me stay here.”

A note to our readers: The Weekly Sun will be in their new headquarters as of Oct. 21 at 613 N. River St. in The Gateway Building.

Something’s Always Brewing at The Coffee Grinder BY BALI SZABO


icola “Nikki” Potts has owned and operated The Coffee Grinder & Gallery since 1982 when she bought it from artist Deb Edgars who opened it in 1976. Nikki has continued the tradition of having a gallery and showing art year-round. It’s one of Ketchum’s unofficial galleries, like Jeannie Catchpole’s at the Sun Valley Real Estate offices. Ketchum’s foot traffic is much more seasonal than the rest of the Valley, and Nikki is happier these days, as business is picking up. Like so many business women in our society-at-large, Nikki is single, juggles some family responsibilities, loves what she’s doing and calls the Grinder ‘a great business.’ We’re in an election cycle, and she and other downtown business owners would like a stronger voice and better representation than the chamber of commerce provides, which she thinks is outdated. She’d prefer to see a downtown business alliance and improved dialogue with the political establishment. Now that the economy is recovering, she and other business owners are discussing how to best seize the moment. One of the reasons Nikki loves what she’s doing is that she feels her business—and so, she, personally—is a real part of the community, a position she enjoys and that helps her live a purposeful life. In Nikki’s view, a coffee house should be a little bit Bohemian, a kind of speakeasy where locals and visitors can mix. She considers her establishment ‘the real visitor’s center,’ where people can come and get the lowdown on who, what and where in a congenial, informal atmosphere. I asked her what the brew time was for coffee, and she said, ‘Coffee is like democracy, brew it as you want—one minute for a delicate cup, and several minutes for strong, robust flavor.’ The Grinder’s off-season business hours are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. tws

Desert Queen Gertrude Bell

Desert Queen: The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell: Adventurer, Adviser to Kings, Ally of Lawrence of Arabia by Janet Wallach, Hardback, 377 pages, © 1996 BY MARGOT VAN HORN


he picture on the front of this book pretty much tells it all; it is of a line of camels with their riders in front of the Egyptian pyramids. Prominently seen is a woman arrayed in a fancy hat and a fur boa flanked by Winston Churchill and T.E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). It was taken at the Cairo Conference in 1921—the upshot of that conference Ms. Bell hoped would lead to her envisioned model for the entire Middle East. In actuality, she was instrumental in founding the State of Iraq and of defining the border and boundary lines. She was a cartographer. Miss Bell was born in England at the end of the Victorian age, 1868. She did indeed live an extraordinary life. She was born into a privileged family and, therefore, had the leisure and money to accomplish many outstanding feats in spite of her having been a very attractive and feminine woman. In her younger life, she climbed the peaks of Switzerland (one was even named for her) and attended the mostly all male, at that time, college at Oxford. She then became fascinated with the Arabian deserts and their sheikhs and chieftains. She traveled through the deserts and, with her knowledge of the

Arabic languages, was successful in meeting all of the important heads of the different tribes. She won the gold medal from the Royal Geographic Society, and the CBE, Commander of the British Empire, medal; in 1916 she became Major Miss Bell and was the only female political officer in the British forces and later became the Oriental Secretary; she was part of British Intelligence for the Middle East; she explored archaeological sites and wrote books and articles for various important publications about them and about life in Arabia; she was called “a remarkable woman with the brains of a man” and was looked on by the various tribal communities as an “honorary man.” She eventually bought her only home, in Baghdad, and died there. Miss Bell ended her life by creating the antiques museum in Baghdad. She died a spinster, in spite of several intense love affairs that ended very sadly. In reading this book, I was right alongside Ms. Bell, and, when it ended, I shed some tears. So, for me, this was a well-written book and I found it to include a revealing study of the evolution of the Middle East from the 1800s to 1926. I think that for those of you who are interested in the history of that area, you will find the same thing. One more fascinating lady existed on the heels of Miss Bell and that was Freya Stark.

Kurlansky Urges Would-Be Writers to Find Their Voice STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


ou might have thought author Mark Kurlansky was preaching to the choir the way he kept talking about developing your own voice. But Kurlansky was exhorting would-be writers to find their own voices at a writing workshop Saturday morning. “You have to say what you have to say in your voice,” said Kurlansky, a magazine writer and author of such books as “Birdseye: The Adventures of a Curious Man.” Everyone has a voice, like a singer. Some have better voices than others. The great writers are better because they have got great voices. And the truer you are to your voice, the better you’re going to be.” Fifteen would-be writers, including Sage School teacher Emma Drucker and students Riley Boice and Sofia Drougas, took part in the Saturday morning workshop offered as part of the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. Many came armed with paragraphs focusing on such questions as “Who are you? What culture have you come from? And how does your culture express who you are?” as part of the exercise. They responded with such snippets as the genesis of a story titled “Uber Heehaw” as it sought to tell the story of a woman whose mother is of German descent and whose father hails from the Arkansas Ozarks. Kurlansky told them the problem with teaching writing is that there isn’t a right or wrong way. “I can teach you how I write, but you shouldn’t write as I

write,” he said. That said, he offered that some experiments don’t work. Gertrude Stein, for instance, tried to use some interesting techniques. “But in my opinion, she never made it work,” he added. Kurlansky said he goes to the office at 8 and stays until 7 or 8 that night. “And what have I done? I’ve spent all day talking to myself. You’ve got to enjoy your own company to be a writer.” Kurlansky said storytelling— and details—are two of the keys for him. “I went to college in the Midwest and everything in the Midwest has melted cheese on it,” he said, offering up an example of detail. “Salt struck me as a good

story,” he added, referring to his book “Salt: A World History.” “Everybody thought (salt) was incredibly valuable—people went to war for it…” He paused. “There’s a lot of food in my stories. I feel that’s a great way of approaching culture and people.” Some people are private about their writing. But one of the things about writing is it’s not meant to be private but public, Kurlansky said. The reason people have writer’s block, he said, is because they want to get it out and be perfect. “Don’t do that. You’ll never get past it. To write well—or paint well—you have to be okay with being bad.” tws

Wellness Expert Seeks to Turn Down Inflammation in Our Bodies

FIFTY-FIVE ARTIST, from page 1 be busy, which also leads him to building Willow Woman, a towering sculpture of willow that he and others build and burn to celebrate the solstice each year. “Art keeps you sane in a crazy world,” he said. “I like to show my art whether I sell it or not. And that’ll be the case with the studio tour. I like it when someone leaves with their eyes wide open, saying, ‘I’ve never seen that before!’ ”



Take the Tour

Fifty-five artists will open their studios to the public in the inaugural Wood River Valley Studio Tour this Saturday and Sunday. “We have more than 200 working artists in the Valley—and there’s lots of interest from many of the rest of them doing it next year,” said Suzanne Hazlett. Hazlett—an artist herself— co-founded the Wood River Valley Studio Tour with Brooke Bonner, who owned Green Antelope Gallery in Bellevue until a few months ago. Hazlett says the artists are looking forward to having people visit their studios for a unique glimpse into the life of a working artist. The tour will include sculptors, printmakers, photographers, painters, mixed-media artists, jewelers, glassworkers, fiber artists, drawers and ceramic artists. “A lot of people have never been in an artist’s studio. They’ve only seen art in a museum or gallery. This is a chance to be in a room where art is created, to see the process. It’s such a special opportunity,” said Hazlett. A reception for artists and viewers will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Saturday at Wood River Fine Arts, 360 East Ave. in Ketchum.

The reception will feature a group exhibition offering samples of the artists on the tour so viewers can map out which artists they’d like to visit the next day.

his country needs an intervention, says Dr. James Rouse. “We’ve normalized diabetes, depression, insomnia…,” he says. “Cancer, depression, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease all have a direct link to inflammation. And inflammation has become an epidemic in our country.” Rouse is a naturopathic doctor who has coached Fortune 500 companies, Major League Baseball and NFL teams and written nine books on functional and lifestyle medicine. He energized attendees at last spring’s Sun Valley Wellness Festival. And now he’s back to conduct a wellness talk on cultivating an anti-inflammatory lifestyle—“Think…Eat..Move: A Simple Philosophy for Reclaiming Optimum Wellness and Reducing Inflammation within Our Bodies.” The talk will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 26, at the Sun Valley Inn. The program is presented by the Sun Valley Wellness institute. All participants will receive an anti-inflammatory and thriving “care package,” including a four-week eating and recipe plan. During last spring’s Sun Valley Wellness Festival, the bouncy, energetic Rouse told attendees that the Dalai Lama expressed dismay that man sacrifices his health to make money. Then he uses that money to recuperate. “Man is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present,” Rouse added. Each of us holds the power to turn off the fire or the inflammation that spells trouble for our body, he added. Among his many tips: • Show your molars and smile. Excel in happiness as it strengthens the primary defense system against cancer. • Covet kale. And broccoli, spinach, walnuts and avocados. Top 10 foods are wild fish, nuts and seeds, olive oil, cruciferous vegetables and dark leafy

greens, berries, cherries, turmeric and curry spices, garlic and green tea. Eight foods you should eat every day: Carrots, spinach, garlic, tomatoes, mushrooms, seeds and berries. “We want to move from the culture of death to life,” Rouse said. “And food is life.” • Exercise. Most people have no idea how good their body is supposed to feel. Motion creates positive things. When you’re in a position where you don’t feel good about yourself, move. Don’t sit and marinate in cortisol (a hormone released in response to stress). “What if we woke up and saw our running shoes and thought, ‘What a blessing!’ How would life be different if we lunged, rather than, limped, to the bathroom each morning,” Rouse enthused. “Exercise is a blessing—it’s an awesome thing to move your body!” *Retrain your thoughts. How we think about the world is more four times more powerful than our circumstances. The average American thinks 60,000 thoughts a day. Ninety-five percent of those are recycled; 80 percent are negative. “We can wake up in the morning and say, ‘Good morning, God.’ Or we can wake up saying, ‘Good god it’s morning.’ We pick which tone we set for our day, our life,” Rouse said. “Essentially, there are two ways to live life: As if nothing is a miracle and as everything is a miracle.” Rouse said he stopped watching TV news in 1989—anything he needs to know someone will tell him. “I like reading my news rather than having it pushed in my face because I can do a better job of picking what I choose to read. And I choose to read things telling me how good everything can be.” Tickets to the Oct. 26 presentation are $35 in advance at Chapter One Bookstore in Ketchum and online at They will be sold at the door for $40, if still available. tws

Painter Jean-Pierre Chesnel Joins the Studio Tour BY KAREN BOSSICK

Sheepskin Coat Factory



ean-Pierre Chesnel studies a painting he copied of a Vincent Van Gogh picture. “A famous painter did that in two hours, but it’s so alive. You can see the emotions. You look into the eyes and you see the soul of the man. It says so much. It’s so honest,” he said. Chesnel, a Bellevue artist, paints with the same feeling, the same honesty, as he strives to portray the world that best speaks to him—from Crow Indians catching their breath following a Sun Dance to the towering red sandstone cliffs of the American Southwest. Chesnel’s 24-foot Picasso-like murals grace the walls of the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls and restaurants in Scottsdale and Sedona, Ariz. His paintings have ended up in many an art lover’s portfolio. And on Saturday and Sunday, Wood River Valley residents will get a chance to see Chesnel’s work for themselves, along with the studio loft where he creates it as the afternoon sun streams through the window, during a free Wood River Valley Studio Tour. Chesnel knew at age 6 that he was destined to be an artist. “I told an artist, ‘When I grow up, I want to be an artist. I want to be a painter,’ ” he recounted in his soft French accent. “Be aware: If you’re a painter, you won’t have fresh bread on the table every day,” the artist told the young boy. “I guess that’s why 30 years later I opened a wholesale bakery, bringing in the No. 2 baker in France to Salt Lake City— because I wanted to have both,” Chesnel chuckled. It took 30 years for Chesnel to pick up a paintbrush, though. He apprenticed to be a jockey. But, when it became apparent he was fast heading toward being 6 feet tall, the 15-year-old returned home to work with his father, who designed gardens for horse farms and the small Normandy villages that tried to outshine neighboring villages with flowers in the windows and village squares.

What are you doing here?

Since he could not return to school under the system in place at that time, Chesnel decided to spend the next seven years visiting the museums of the world to get an education. One of the adventures that left the biggest impression on him was when he ran into a Suddhu holy man in the Great Indian Desert of Rajestan in northwest India. “I was totally frightened because I had been in Bombay and seen the power they possessed. I had seen one standing with his head buried in the dirt breathing through his body. Another stood on his leg for four months. They can read you and open you up,” he said. Chesnel thought he would be spared from having to talk to the man since he didn’t know English or any Indian dialects. But the man talked to him through an inner voice. “What are you doing here?” the voice asked. “I’m trying to be close to the people,” Chesnel replied. “Well, then, you should have learned their language,” the voice retorted. “How could I? “Chesnel asked. “India alone has 200 languages and dialects.” “You could have tried,” the voice replied. “At that time I understood

We’re Moving! something I never understood before—that trying is the first step toward success,” said Chesnel. I learned Pashto in Pakistan. I learned the Afghan language. I started singing songs in Iran after just two weeks there and people asked me how many years I’d been there.” Chesnel decided to go to the United States for three months and learn the English language before heading to South America where he hoped to meet up with a medicine holy man. But he met a Yellow Tail, a medicine man in Montana, and realized he didn’t need to go any further. He was informally adopted into Yellow Tail’s family. He participated in a Sun Dance—something he’s done every year since. He undertook a Vision Quest, experiencing in awe the way he was able to pray a windstorm powerful enough to blow his sleeping bag away into existence. He found the mysticism he was looking for in the Crows’ connection with nature—the rocks, trees, water and birds. “It’s not you and your car and your refrigerator. It’s looking for visions, for guidance,” he said.

It’s the brush that speaks

Though living in Sun Valley for much of the past 35 years, Chesnel has found time to travel back to the Crow Indian Reservation every year, in addition to visiting the Hopi Indians in Arizona. “I have never understood why Americans travel the world to find whatever when most have never been to our Indian ceremonies right here at home. Half-man/half-ram, half-man/ half-eagle—you get chills,” he said. “It’s a way of living so far from the white man’s ways. “It’s about integrity and honesty. If you let go of integrity, it’s like letting go of a trapeze—once you let go, there’s no going back.” A glance around Chesnel’s Southwestern-flavored home near the foothills in Bellevue shows that Native Americans are his favorite subject matter. There’s a painting of dancers on “the other side” dancing as those on Earth dance. There’s one of a medicine man’s tipi, overlaid

“…I understood somthing I never understood before – that trying is the first step toward success.”

–Jean-Pierre Chesnel with a moose, signifying where his medicine comes from. There’s one of Yellow Tail, a pow-wow dancer, a traditional dancer from the Northern Plains, Indians participating in a ram dance. There’s even one of Connie, his wife of 30 years, rushing to the center pole during a Sun Dance, a feathered whistle in her mouth as she makes the sound of an eagle. But Chesnel’s walls also boast some imitations of the masters, including the portrait of Van Gogh and a canal scene originally done by Claude Monet. “You can get in the head of the masters by copying them,” he said. “Their strokes are not that different. But what’s extraordinary is how much they do with so little.” Chesnel’s own paintings rarely come out the way he initially envisions them. “The story needs to be told, but it’s the brush that tells the story, the brush that speaks. You need to be willing to go along with it,” said Chesnel, who holds his big brushes loosely in his fingertips. Connie Chesnel, who has worked in several art galleries, says she likes her husband’s paintings because they surprise her: “Pierre captures something beyond what the person looks like in a mirror. Things that you don’t ordinarily see. But it’s truly them—how they feel, how they think.” Chesnel feels flattered when people want to buy one of his paintings. “But I paint because I need to paint, because I want to be a better painter,” he said. “I’m happy not to sell when that happens, too, because then I get to live tws with my paintings.”

Don’t Let the Change in Season Change You BY CHRISTINA TINDLE, M.A., PSYCHOLOGY


he four seasons of the Wood River Valley offer abrupt changes in sunlight, weather and temperature differences. Low sunlight with cold temperatures triggers hibernation in some animals. People’s moods also change. Reactions to darkness vary greatly among people, obscuring what causes seasonal depression. Why do many feel elated with winter recreation, snow, and blue skies against snowy peaks, while others become lethargic, sleep more, and grow more irritable and depressed as the days shorten? Documentation shows some people are more physically sensitive to less sunlight, initiating a seasonal depression, formally called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). This depression is noted by increased sleep, cravings for sugar and starch, weight gain, and feeling sad, discouraged or hopeless. Some say it compares as a human version of animal hibernation because SAD sufferers often want to sleep the winter away and wake up for spring’s arrival. Forcing themselves to trudge through winter consumes their already reduced energy. It isn’t easy or fun to get through day after dark, cold day. The perplexing part is some sufferers feel depressed in summer, not winter, which raises more questions about the causes. Apparently not all SAD

is from darkness, when some are afflicted during the peak of the sun’s rays. There are tips that thrivers share to prevent or reduce SAD. We recognize thrivers through their jubilance and robust energy. They may be heard hooting as they ski Baldy or are seen sweating through Merino wool layers as they bound hills on Nordic skis. Thrivers are not all Master-level athletes or Olympians, either; many are recreational-level only. After a day of winter fun, they usually join friends for post-adventure stories and meals. Why are they happy during a season that makes others feel depressed since both groups live under the same sunlight and weather conditions? Foremost is that winter thrivers expect life to be meaningful and fun. SAD folks oftentimes lament about next winter being long, cold, hard, terrible, and depressing way before it arrives. Humans love to be right. In fact, we are excellent at acknowledging the errors of others. We even love to be right about another being wrong (I told you so). Positive expectations become as likely to be realized as negative, so choose wisely. When positive options are selected consistently, life develops into a more satisfying experience. Here are tips from thrivers that boost winter enjoyment and increase happiness: 1. Choose to thrive this winter to set your stage for hope instead

of avoiding it. Use a variety of tools to embrace winter: light boxes, good nutrition, yoga, reading uplifting books, painting, writing, and/or taking a vacation midwinter to a sunny beach. Develop a strong body and mind. Select a physical activity to do regularly, especially outside in the winter sunshine. It doesn’t have to be the 20-mile Boulder Mountain Tour. Studies show that an easy 45-minute daily walk stimulates concentration and memory. A stronger mind with a positive outlook greatly resists depression. Socialize often with fun friends and loving family to strengthen mental and emotional resilience, found critical in balancing depression. SAD folks probably believe the Wood River Valley has two seasons, winter and short summers. The rest experience our two seasons differently, as winter and road repair. This year, I’d say road repair is longer than the upcoming winter, but roadwork hasn’t triggered any serious depression. Life is about lessons learned during the journey that make the ride more meaningful. Celebrate this winter rather than merely survive so you experience again how time flies when you’re having fun. Then it’s spring and the worst is over with lots of personal accomplishment that bolsters confidence to thrive your next winter season. tws

Agriculture, Idaho Dairy Industry


daho dairy farmers produce more milk and cheese than almost any state in the nation. Idaho is ranked third nationally (behind California and Wisconsin) for overall cheese production, third in milk production and fourth in number of milk cows. The biggest slice of Idaho’s natural resource pie comes from agriculture. Along with mining and logging, it helped build the economy here.  In 2010, agriculture and livestock cash receipts totaled about $5.8 billion, according to Jay O’Laughlin at the University of Idaho’s College of Natural Resources. O’Laughlin reports more than $2 billion in cash receipts went to milk producers. Fast Facts: • Since 1997, the annual

Th e W e e k l y S u n •

revenue from the sale of dairy products has exceeded the annual revenue from the sale of potatoes. • In 2004, revenue from the sale of dairy products surpassed revenue from the sale of meat animals and is now the largest single source of revenue of any agricultural product in the state. • In 2008, Idaho dairy farms produced 12.315 million pounds of milk at an estimated value at over $2.1 billion. • In 2008, 13,180 people were directly employed on Idaho dairy farms or in Idaho dairy product manufacturing plants. The majority of these jobs—9,571—were within seven southcentral Idaho counties: Twin Falls, Jerome, Gooding, Lincoln, Cassia, Minidoka, and Elmore. • Of those 13,180 jobs, 82 per-

cent, or 10,809, were on Idaho’s dairy farms, while the remaining 18 percent, 2,371 jobs, were in Idaho’s dairy product manufacturing plants. • The economic activity generated by dairy farming and dairy product manufacturing in Idaho also generates a significant stream of annual tax revenues to the state of Idaho. An estimated $106.9 million in annual tax revenues that are received by the state of Idaho can be attributed to the direct and secondary economic impacts associated with the dairy industry.

3 Tips for First-Time Homeowners BY ANA TORRES


ou have finally turned the corner from renter to homeowner. Yep, you can paint your walls any color you want and no one has a key that works in your door except you. It’s a great feeling but it can be easy to go overboard and make mistakes that can compromise everything you’ve worked so hard to accomplish. 1. Don’t Overspend on Furniture and Remodeling In the year 2013, to get into your new home, you’ve made a significant down payment (at least most of you have) and spent thousands of additional dollars for closing costs and even moving expenses. This has, in many cases, put a severe dent in the first-time homeowner’s savings account. Along with this, the additional monthly costs associated with home-ownership expenses are often higher, as well, thanks to the additional expenses that come with home ownership, such as extra insurance and utilities you didn’t have to pay when you rented that apartment. It’s very natural to want to personalize your new home. And it’s very easy to get carried away

trying to change everything at once. A new bathroom with that beautiful soaking Jacuzzi tub is tempting but don’t jeopardize your future as a homeowner spending money you don’t really have at this time. Take some time, make small improvements or changes and build up your bank account and other resources. It also helps to wait a bit until you are used to the additional expenses of owning your first home. 2. Don’t Ignore Important Maintenance Items One of the big changes that comes with home ownership is that when the roof leaks or the garage door isn’t opening, you don’t get to call your landlord— it’s all on you. Don’t ignore any problems that could be dangerous or make a small problem into a much bigger—and yes, much more expensive—problem. Repairing a roof that is leaking might cost you a few thousand dollars but letting it go can cost tens of thousands of dollars. If it needs to be done, as the saying goes, just do it! 3. Hiring Contractors One of the biggest temptations new homeowners face is trying to make repairs they aren’t qual-

chamber corner

ified to make. It’s easy to think, Hey, I can save money doing it myself. But you can also turn something small into something big (and much more expensive) being Mr./Ms. Fix It. Painting a room isn’t typically a big deal. But rewiring that same room is a big deal that should be handled by someone with the experience to make the change and not burn down your home. Your home is a significant financial investment so treat it as such and make sure you hire qualified repair persons and contractors when you have an issue that needs professional attention. There are many other tips you can find regarding new home ownership just by looking on the Internet. By following the above three simple tips, you will not only help yourself financially but help yourself emotionally by reducing the stress associated with being a new home owner.

A Testimonial for Jeffrey R. Roth, DMD


have a different perspective that I would like to share with you. So often we hear the complaints of people, but, in my opinion, we do not hear the praise nearly often enough. I received such a glowing review of a local dentist that I wanted to pass it on to all of you. So many people have such a fear of going to the dentist that it struck a chord with me and I just had to share this review. “This dentist is the best I’ve ever had in my 74-year experience with dentists. He is absolutely amazing. What’s amazing is his ease to make you at ease; the procedures made painless by his assurance and ease of performing them; his empathy with your fears so that if you tell him that you are claustrophobic, he pays attention to that; he is totally confident in his abilities, which makes you confident of them as well; his assistant, Jenny is as good as he is; and, best of all, our famed Chris Mazzola has become his dental guide. He truly is an amazingly talented

dentist and has a passion and love for the profession. Maybe that’s what really caught my attention. And the day after, he called to see how I was doing. I HAVE NEVER HAD A DENTIST DO THAT---WOW!!!” This person is referencing Jeffrey R.

Roth, DDS. I think that this is a wonderful example of how we can all reach out and let our local businesses know how we appreciate the jobs that they do and that the little things can and do make a big difference. tws

Trailing Festival Boosts Visitor Numbers STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


hey’d been out of range of Fox News all summer long while grazing in the mountains north of Sun Valley. But 1,500 sheep acted like they knew all about the government shutdown as they dragged their own feet en route to the 17th annual Zions Bank Trailing of the Sheep Parade on Sunday. “They must be federal sheep. They’re going to wait for back pay before they come through town,” quipped one man as he and others began blaming the already-maligned Congress for the late showing of the stars of the parade. When the sheep did show on their way home from summer pastures in the mountains, they seemed as confused as Congress, running around in circles before rancher John Faulkner and others finally got them to go

straight. “Although they were slow, they were well-behaved,” said the Rev. Ken Brannon, who stood in the middle of Main Street, his shepherd’s staff in hand blessing the sheep as they ran around him. The temporary delay in the parade was the only hitch in a four-day festival that enjoyed comfortable temperatures and fiery red and gold fall foliage despite a dusting of snow that topped Bald Mountain early Sunday morning. Cristina’s restaurant served more than a thousand people Friday night as long lines of up to 80 people queued up for lamb strudel, spezzatino of lamb and kale, lamb San Cocho and other lamb samples at nine different restaurants. Festival Director Mary Austin Crofts estimated the Sheep Folklife Fair on Saturday drew its largest crowd ever. And other

events, including a dinner-dance show featuring The Hot Club of Cowtown, drew elbow-to-elbow crowds. It all meant millions of dollars for the local economy, considering past festivals have brought up to 5,000 out-of-towners and $3.5 million each year. “As you may know, Ketchum went through a rough spot due to the fire. We needed to do a lot to make up lost ground. We asked and you came. And we thank you from the bottom of our heart,” Ketchum Mayor Randy Hall told a packed auditorium of 200-plus people at the nexStage Theatre Friday night at a SheepTale Gatherings featuring best-selling author Mark Kurlansky. The festival brought in plenty of out-of-staters, in addition to visitors from Twin Falls and Boise. Neil McMahon, who raises about 50 sheep near Oregon

City, Ore., came last year and returned this year. “Since I eat lamb all the time, I especially love getting to try the different lamb dishes and seeing the different ways people prepare lamb,” he said. Judy Mullens, of Lower Lake, Calif., saw a blurb about the festival in Sunset Magazine eight years ago and finally got around to attending last year. This year she and her husband brought another couple with them. “It’s different, fun and it’s jam packed with things to do,” said Mullens, as she watched Felix Gonzalez prepare lamb meatballs and flan at one of four cooking classes. “Both we and our friends are sponsoring dogs at the Sheepdog Trials, so it’s always fun to go and watch them. And, of course, the tastings are pretty good, too.” Hailey residents Don and Marcia Liebich were among

those cutting the rug as The Hot Club of Cowtown played at the Sheepherder’s Ball Saturday night. “It was infectious,” said Marcia Liebich. “We hadn’t danced in such a long time, but we had so much fun. I couldn’t believe how fast the bass player slapped his strings. And the fiddle player was good, too.” Carolyn Wicklund stood on the same corner she does every year. “I like watching Father Ken blessing the sheep as they go by him. It’s so amazing,” she said. Leslie Larson marched in the parade with her friends Mike and Helen Faulkner who supplied the sheep for the parade this year. “I hadn’t watched until last year but it was really fun and so colorful and fascinating,” she said. tws


(clockwise from above) Tony Gomez, a 100-year-old Spaniard, took in a number of events, including Friday’s Lamb Tastings, over the weekend. Gomez, who took up paragliding at age 85, said he once pretended to be a bull as Ernest Hemingway turned a tablecloth into a bullfighting cape at The Alpine Club. Leanna Leach and Kraig Sundberg were among those who turned out for Saturday’s Sheepherder’s Ball. A young lass danced with The Boise Highlanders Saturday at the Sheep Folklife Fair. A vendor explained an electric carding machine at Saturday’s Sheep Folklife Fair. Sheep rancher John Faulkner of Gooding finally got his sheep to run straight after they spent about five minutes running in circles on Main Street, Ketchum, during Sunday’s Trailing of the Sheep Parade. Sheep wagons are taking on a glamorous aura if you go by those exhibited at Saturday’s Sheep Folklife Fair. Peruvian dancers, representing the Peruvian sheepherders who now herd sheep in the mountains, dance during Sunday’s parade. Ashley, Caleb and Aiden Visser drew some amused glances even from parade participants as the boys watched the parade in cow outfits.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I consider myself to be fairly intelligent. I read the newspaper and the classifieds every day. As the colder months are approaching, I've started to notice more advertising for furnaces and fireplaces in the newspaper. The one ad I saw last week was kind of confusing. I've heard of heating your home with fuel oil, natural gas, wood stoves or even pellet stoves, but one contractor was offering to install a corn furnace. I've never heard of such a thing. At first I thought it was a misprint. I mean, I eat popcorn, canned corn, even corn on the cob, but never thought of using it to heat my home. Is this ad a hoax or are there really corn furnaces?

• • • Cash: The ad is no hoax. In fact, it's quite a-maiz-ing! There really are furnaces to heat your home that use corn as a fuel source. Carry: Corn stoves or furnaces have been used in certain parts of the country for years, especially where corn is prevelent. In recent years as other fuel prices have dramatically risen, corn stoves have gained in popularity. Cash: Using corn as fuel makes

sense. You may have heard news reports about using ethanol fuel to run in your car. Well, ethanol is a form of alcohol that is derived from corn. This same energy source that could power your car is also what makes corn a good alternative for heating your home. It generally burns clean and is readily available. Carry: A corn furnace operates similarly to any other furnace, except for the fuel. It doesn't burn the stalks, left over cobs or popcorn. Instead, it burns dried kernels of shelled corn, the same yellow kind cows eat. Cash: Some of the furnaces are designed to burn all sorts of alternative fuels, including wood chips, sawdust, walnut shells or even cherry pits.

Carry: Although, I wonder how you get enough cherry pits to heat a home. Cash: While these types of heating systems are a great alternative, they do require a little more work. The hopper of a corn furnace needs to be reloaded with corn, usually about once a day. Also, you'll need a clean dry place to store the 50pound bags of corn. Carry: Unlike popcorn, the corn furnace won't make your house smell like a night at the movies and the kernels don't snap, crackle or pop as they burn. The process is silent. Cash: Although, it would be handy if future models came equipped with an option to make movie popcorn as well.

Heating your home has become very expensive in recent years, but you can program in some savings by updating your thermostat. Adding a programmable thermostat can save you up to 20% of your heating costs. By lowering the temperature in your home by 5 degrees at night and 10 degrees while you're at work, you'll notice a significant difference in your heating bills. Most thermostats can set different schedules for each day and even raise the temperature before you get up in the morning or come home from work.

Sounds Corny

Most of us know corn as a great side dish at the family BBQ. However, its uses are quite diverse. The United States leads the world in corn production. Each year almost 100 million acres are planted and produce in excess of 11 million bushels (that's over 500 million ears of corn!) The vast majority of the US produced corn is used to create animal feed (40%) and fuel ethanol (30%). Other uses include sweeteners (7%), cereal (2%) and alcoholic beverages (1%). Only a small percentage ends up at the family BBQ.

Reader Humor Husband Roast

My husband is a great guy, but unfortunately he is also known for telling really cheesy jokes. There isn't a holiday that goes by where he doesn't tell some story that makes everyone cringe. At our last family gathering he finally got a taste of his own medicine. After dinner he took everyone into the living room to show them our new corn stove that heats the house. He went on describing how it runs by simply adding corn into the hopper. After making a few more bad jokes, he was finally caught off guard by my uncle. "If you put one of your corny jokes in there," my uncle said, "it could heat your house for a year!" (Thanks to Cecilia M.)
