Woman in Black, a Good Ghost Story

Karen Jacobsen



he stage is set for a good ghost story at the Liberty Theater. Company of Fools’ set designer Joe Lavigne has draped white sheets over the theater’s 200 seats, giving them a ghostly look. And he’s set 48 seats on stage within a spook’s reach of the actors. He’ll top it all off with a dirty dusty look, thanks to a machine that can make the theater look dirty and dusty, even though it’s not. And Steven Koehler will endow the theater with some spooky lighting. It’s up to Scott Creighton and Neil Brookshire to take it from there as they tell Susan Hill’s 1983 horror fiction novel about a menacing ghost known as “The Woman in Black” who haunts the bleak, isolated manor of Eel Marsh House. “The play takes place in an empty theater so we’ll have people coming through a dark musty lobby. And the seating will give the intimate feel of sitting around a campfire—there’s something about being really close for a good ghost story,” said Director John Glenn. The play, adapted by Stephen Malatratt, was first performed at the Theatre-By-The Sea in Scarborough, England, in 1987. Acclaimed to be one of the most exciting, gripping theatre events ever staged, it’s now celebrating 23 years in London’s West End with a run second only to Agatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap”—the longest running non-musical show of the modern era. Scott Creighton, who has been in numerous Company of Fools plays, plays a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over he and his family by the ghost of a woman in black. He employs a young actor to help him tell the story and soon both are caught up in a world where the borders between make believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep. “It’s the story of an old lawyer who comes to a young actor to tell the story of what happened to him. The young actor plays me and I play all the people he met—seven different people in all,” said Creighton, who is learning a Devonshire accent and other dialects to help distinguish his characters. Neil Brookshire appeared in the Fools’ production of “Uncle Vanya” years ago. He has since spent eight seasons with the Idaho Shakespeare Festival and appeared with other theater companies, including Seattle Novyi Theatre, Opera Idaho, Idaho Dance Theatre and Boise Contemporary Theater. Glenn noted that the play takes place in 1937—right about the time the Liberty Theater was built—a touch that should only add to the spooky feel. “It’s not a modern, slasher-type horror story. But it does have some scary moments,” he said. “It’s a psychological piece that messes with your brain. You never know what’s going to be besides you.” “It’s a good ghost story, very mysterious,” said Brookshire. “It’s been produced all over so it’s obviously got something people like.”

Karen Jacobsen is known around the Sun Valley area for her plein air paintings of Redfish Lake and other local landmarks that she paints on site outdoors. Underwater explorers know the Hailey woman for her plein eau (water) illustrations. STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


he landscape Karen Jacobsen was painting looked just like the expansive rolling sea of sagebrush, cinder cones, lava fields, black glassy lava rock, lava tubes and sink holes that she drives past every time she heads south to Twin Falls or east past Craters of the Moon. But this landscape lay 5,000 meters underwater. “Rolling hills and mountains of mud,” said Jacobsen. “And something about the softness of these mountains reminded me of the familiar sage-covered mountains in our area.” The watercolor artist has toted her sketchbooks and paintbrushes to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, the North Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico countless times in order to offer the world detailed likenesses of what may seem the stuff of science fiction. She paints what she sees from the cramped studio of a miniature research submarine. “She’s so talented. And she’s able to provide us with an opportunity to glimpse a world that 99 percent of us will never see since she gets to go down in a submersible,” said Courtney Gilbert, a curator at the Sun Valley Center for the Arts. “We think we live in an age where we know everything. But you look at Karen’s work and you quickly learn there’s a lot we don’t know lying at the bottom of the ocean.” Jacobsen recently returned from another underwater expedition—on the tethered ROV Jason to explore the mud volcanoes of the Barbados Accretionary Prism. But this expedition was different—for the first time, she was accompanied by five other artists—a filmmaker, batik artist, acrylics artist and videographers tagged with capturing a “Moment of Discovery.” They hope to create a traveling multi-media exhibit if they can find the funding. “I feel it’s incredibly important to show aspects of the ocean floor, as it covers about 70 percent of our planet—our home— and the vast majority of it remains unexplored,” said Jacobsen, who has shown her work in exhibitions across the country, including one at the National Science Foundation headquarters in Arlington, Va. “I have been granted the privilege of seeing it and being present for the moments of discovery, and I have a responsibility to bring these images back to show people.”

Karen Jacobsen, standing next to an illustration of tubeworms, sometimes paints subjects under a microscope. At other times she paints looking out the window of Alvin.

It was Jacobsen’s artist mother Sue who taught her to draw from life, not photos. That talent found its match in a Scientific Illustration class Jacobsen took at the University of CaliforniaSanta Cruz where she studied art. “I felt as if I was born to be an expedition illustrator,” she said. “I’m not an abstract painter—someone who has to put my emotions on canvas. I want to paint what I see.” The trick, however, was to find work as a scientific illustrator in a world where demand peaked a couple of hundred years ago. To prove her worth, Jacobsen illustrated archaeological digs in Petra, Jordan, and other exotic locales. Then, in 1991, she was introduced to Cindy Van Dover, an oceanographer from the Duke University Marine Laboratory and a Navy-certified submarine pilot. To date, Jacobsen has gone on more than a dozen deep-sea trips and cruises, painting at the bottom of a six-foot sphere or bowl on the submersible as Van Dover and other scientists discover life in places that were once believed to be void of life. Like Captain Nemo and the crew of the Nautilus, they and their miniature submarine, named Alvin, dive 20,000 leagues under the sea where they explore hot springs on the ocean bottom that Jacobsen likens to Old Faithful erupting out of a chimneytop. They’ve found giant red-plumbed tubeworm pillars up to 30

Jazz Festival to Feature One of Our Own


ichael Protacio honed his vocal talent at the Sun Valley Summer Symphony music workshops. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll show off what he learned during the Sun Valley Jazz Festival this week as a member of the Yale University Whiffenpoofs, the oldest a cappella group in the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be singing such selections as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Be Seeing You,â&#x20AC;?

Protacio vacationed each summer in Sun Valley, courtesy of his grandparents Gloria and Jim Quinones, who have had a home in Sun Valley for 40 years.

chorus of “ooohs” and “ahhhs” rang out as Linda Cortright showed a slide of a brown baby goat amidst a sea of white cashmere goats. “You would never see this in China because it’s not perfect,” she told the men and women packed into the Sawtooth Botanical Garden building. “Brown or tan goats will produce oatmealcolored cashmere.” Cortright regaled standingroom-only crowds at the Botanical Garden and The Community Library this past weekend as she spun stories of the animals and the people around the world who provide the fiber for our coats and blankets. Cortright left a corporate world in Philadelphia in the late 1990s when she figured out “there was a part of me that knew I was not doing what I was put on Earth to do.” She headed to Maine to raise cashmere goats but there was no book on raising cashmere goats, which had just been introduced into the United States in the late 1980s. But, it turned out, the vice president of the Eastern Cashmere Goats Association lived just 10 miles down the road and so Cortright’s quest was on. When that wasn’t enough, Cortright started “Wild Fibers” magazine—a magazine rich in imagery and culture—“as a farmer with a passport” and $6,000 in her savings account. “I thought, ‘I can’t start a magazine—I’m not a writer.’ Then I realized my biggest

reason for not starting the magazine was that I was scared of failing. Now I have 50,000 subscribers,” said Cortright, who also offers tours. The magazine opened the doors to some amazing adventures. One trip took her to New Zealand where she accompanied herders who were rounding up renegade sheep in New Zealand’s mountains by helicopter. The herders would jump out of the helicopter onto the sheep, tie them up and transport them by helicopter—the sheep folded into little balls of wool beneath the chopper. Another took her to Tibet where the climate is so dry that the nomads can only operate their mill five months of the year. She’s trailed goats with 12-year-old herders who used slingshots to keep birds of prey from swooping down on their baby goats. She’s visited sheep penned alongside the sea in Scotland that have learned to thrive on the seaweed the tide brings in. And she’s watched nomads ripping up the soil that fed their animals in order to harvest worms that fetch $50,000 a pound from Chinese who think they can be turned into a wonder drug.

shortest day of the year to see muskox in their natural environment. She didn’t see a single muskox, only to return to the small town where she learned the muskox had been hanging out by the airport all day. While at the Trailing of the Sheep Festival, Cortright visited the May Ranch near Twin Falls and John Peavey’s sheep herd grazing out Corral Creek. “This festival celebrates what’s so important to this community,” she said. “I have such great respect for this festival—it honors man, the animal and the land.

ment. Muskox used to living in the barren Arctic have such an incredibly simple immune system that they get parasites that kill them when you try to domesticate them and put them on grass, she said. And cashmere goats raised in lush environments develop a coarse fiber rather than the soft cashmere that makes them the “ultimate luxury fiber.” “Fine cashmere comes from really hungry goats,” she said. Not all of Cortright’s trips have produced the images and stories she wanted for her magazine.

Brenden Finnerty on a trip in India.


Life Around the World BY JONATHAN KANE


ood River High School senior Brenden Finnerty, carrying a 3.5 grade point average, seems to spend a lot of time overseas. Recently, he returned from a trip to India as part of the Compassionate Young Leaders program. This was the first year of the program and it sent seven studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;five from Wood River and two from The Sage Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;to Leh, India, to bring help and assistance as well as spreading compassion throughout the world to make it a better place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The trip completely changed me as a person,â&#x20AC;? Finnerty said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It changed my perspective and outlook on life. India was so amazing and the whole trip really opened my eyes to what compassion can do. What it can do is make the world a much better place to live in and it hinders suffering from occurring.â&#x20AC;? Last year the program accepted everyone, but this year there is an application process to get in. Acceptance is based on your core characteristics as a person. Before traveling to India, the group had to raise the money ($35,000) themselves, as well as logging 100 hours in community service. While in India, each student logged an additional 400 hours of community service over their three-and-a-half-week trip. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went from June 20 until July 21. The trip was over 20 hours, as we flew from LAX to Delhi. Leh was a small city that was pretty impoverished and rural and the school we worked out of was run by the Dalai Lama Foundation. We stayed at a great bed-and-breakfast with a family and they were some of the best people I have ever met. They always had smiles on their faces and they were really helpful. They didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see favors as a burden. At the school, we helped and contributed in a variety of ways. We worked with the kids and built a greenhouse out of water bottles; helped with computer skills; and painted a mural of the bond between Leh and Idaho. I feel really changed and that it made me a much more compassionate person. It really opened my eyes to how lucky we are to

live in the United States and not in a state of poverty like we saw. We also accomplished a lot more than we set out to do, especially building the greenhouse, which was a major project. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget the experience.â&#x20AC;? This wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Finnertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only experience overseas, because before he moved to Idaho, he lived in Shanghai, China, for three years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My mom is from Twin Falls and I had never visited Idaho until right before we moved here. I love it here and all the outdoor activities. Shanghai lacks the air quality and access to the outdoors. The mountains here are equivalent to their buildings. The city is also home to 23 million people, which is larger than Australia. I guess one of the down sides here is that everyone knows each other and basically what you are doing.â&#x20AC;? Finnerty turned 13 the day he moved to China. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I loved it immediately. It was so different and so new. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my favorite city in the world, basically because of its diversity and how alive it is all the time and also because the culture is so beautiful. The art, the music and the architecture are overwhelming, mainly because we think nothing can top the West, but nothing could be further from the truth.

uke Snell had to rein in his emotions last Thursday as he cut the ribbon for Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Pharmacy in the old North & Co. building at Main and Bullion Street in Hailey. The pharmacy features a state-of-the-art compounding lab, drive-up service and expanded inventory. And it will feature an old-fashioned soda fountain by next year, he said to the cheers of about 60 onlookers. The pharmacy also has a free kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vitamin program to show the community â&#x20AC;&#x153;we care about your health,â&#x20AC;? Snell said. It also has a full line of Chinese herbal products, free delivery to Ketchum and Sun Valley on Thursdays, free delivery in Hailey and Bellevue on Tuesdays and home IV preparation, oxygen, wheelchairs, walkers, hospital beds and CPM machines. Hailey historian Rob Lonning noted that the pharmacy is located in a historical building that was used in 1883 as the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first courthouse, complete with a jail in the basement. The Bullion block the pharmacy is situated in was destroyed by fire in 1889â&#x20AC;&#x201D;a year before Idaho was admitted to statehood. A German merchant promptly rebuilt this building and others and continued to operate it until his death in 1913. The building since has housed Mallory Clothing, Jacobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Variety Store, Vancil Grocery, The Sage Shoppe and North & Co. Lonningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Elizabeth

Luke Snell was joined by his wife Bonnie and their three childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Lily, Adynne and Brooklynâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as they cut the ribbon on Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new pharmacy Thursday.

Jeffrey, noted that Snell worked with remodelers to keep between 50 and 80 percent of the material that was torn out of the build-

ing out of the landfill by sending some of it to second-hand stores and composting the rest. tws

Church Without Walls The Boys Headed to Tuna Town! BY KAREN BOSSICK


he Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood is moving outside its walls. Church members will meet in small neighborhood groups throughout the Valley for an hour on the evenings of Oct. 21 and 28 and Nov. 4 and 11. The church will disband regular Sunday morning church services on Nov. 11 so that members can show Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for the community by participating in various service projects out in the community. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Labor for your Neighborâ&#x20AC;? projects range from providing landscaping for The Advocates to writing letters for the elderly to painting a house for someone who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it themselves, said Kirsten Cleveland. All groups will meet at the church the evening of Nov. 11 for a celebration, refreshments and the final

study. Cleveland serves on the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Faith in Action Team, which is planning the event. Faith in Action was founded by World Vision with the motto: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to church. BE the church.â&#x20AC;? Congregations around the country have had great success with it, Cleveland said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It affirms that churches arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the building and shows Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love for our community in a practical way,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I personally like the idea of meeting in neighborhoods. It makes it convenient and it gives us a chance to meet neighbors we might not have met before.â&#x20AC;? Cleveland said the four-week commitment shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scare anyone away: â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you can only come once or twice, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay, too.â&#x20AC;?

We are taking his advice and as you read this we will be flying over Baja, headed to Los Barriles and the Sea of Cortezâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;aka Tuna Town!! Jason Roth called me in July, wondering if I had heard about the new tournament, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The First Annual Tuna Shootout,â&#x20AC;? in October, hosted by Van Wormer Resorts in Los Barriles, on the Sea of Cortez. They also put on a July tournament, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dorado Shootout,â&#x20AC;? which has been the topic of discussion on many 5:00 a.m. forays to Magic, slow drifts on the Salmon and Clearwater, and sitting on a rock, watering the dogs on our high-altitude blue grouse hunts; namely, could we go to Baja and hold our own, fishing with the big boys? July is a tough time to leave home and jobs, but this October â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tuna Shootoutâ&#x20AC;? had promise and the stars had to align. We would need the blessing of our spouses and the approval of our

employers, and a plan for putting together some sponsor money to pay for it all! Team Idaho was formed: Jason Roth, my eldest son Carson Johnston, Rick Liles (longtime fishing partner, now residing in Southern Cal), and myself. We started making phone calls to garner support from local businesses and Carson and I put an ad in â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Weekly Sunâ&#x20AC;? classifieds, hoping to rally some financial support. Amazingly enough, sponsors lined up, money poured in, the bosses gave us the nod, and our spouses thought that having us gone for a week might not be a bad idea! Theresa Comber, great friend and owner of East Cape RV Resort and Awesome Sport Fishing, with whom we will be staying and on whose boats we will be fishing, will be picking us up on Wednesday, and we should be holding cold Pacificos by early afternoon, solidly ensconced at the fish grinder, laying in a good supply of tuna chum! Fishing begins with hunting big roosters in the shore break on some of Bajaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most desolate

beaches. Then there is a pre-fish for the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tuna Shootout,â&#x20AC;?, and on following days â&#x20AC;&#x153;Team Idahoâ&#x20AC;? is competing in the long-running â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Talk Hook-Upâ&#x20AC;? all-species sport fishing tourney, sponsored by a popular San Diego radio talk show of the same name.

Hemingway Students Excel in Video Contest BY KAREN BOSSICK


cott Slonimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth-grade technology students have only been back to school for a month. But already, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re continuing the Hemingway School tradition of producing award-winning videos. Slonimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students were declared finalists in a Boise State University Idaho Leads video contest, with the winner determined according to the number of votes fans gave them on Facebook. Asked to produce a video about what they think schools will look like in the future, they produced a video that featured iPads as desks. The iPads, which they renamed zPads, are spoken into so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to learn to type. The students put on virtual glasses to take a field trip, ending up at the Triumph Mine. And they had a robot serving lunch. At the videoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conclusion, a student who planned to go for-

ward in time instead went back to 1962 where he encountered an archaic form of education known as a chalkboard. He also ran into a guy named Steve Jobs, who turned out to be very interested in his zPad. Slonim found out about the contest the first week of school, which started after Labor Day. Students worked during recess, after school and even ate lunch in the tech room as they put the video together in just over two weeks, said Slonim. The students were honored at the Idaho Technology Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hall of Fame Gala last week at Boise State University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was amazing!â&#x20AC;? Slonim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seven kids and four parents were able to attend. They served us steak and salmon and split us up for seating. The students got to eat at tables by themselves!  They felt so grown up.â&#x20AC;? There were over 38,000 votes cast, according to the head speaker.  Hemingway did not win, since schools with more students cast more votes.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I told the kids all the finalists were winners because we were picked by the judges as the best submitted,â&#x20AC;? Slonim said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did win a virtual field trip, which I am hoping to give to the fifth-grade classes at Hemingway.  We are now writing for the Panasonic KWN competition and getting ready to start filming soon.â&#x20AC;? The video cast was comprised of Tia Vontver, Laine Allison, Max Moss, Marin Feltman, Nick Maumus, Sage Holter, Kate Horowitz, Jill Frost, Emma Madsen, Luke Worst and Mrs. Scott. Also featured: Tipthanya â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iceâ&#x20AC;? Chanthasuthisombut. Cameramen were Kali Herbst, Jack Oliverio, Jack Horowitz and Ivan Varela. Aidan Burchmore comprised the Action Crew. Murphy Kendal, Sascha Leidecker, Chris Pedersen and Emma MacGuffie directed the video. And Chloe Tanous and Annabelle Rust served as assistants.

Conference Showcases Hemingway the Spy STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


rnest Hemingway’s work as a war correspondent has been well-document-

ed. Less well known is his stint as a spy. The U.S. Treasury Department hired the American author to spy on China in 1941 to see how China was using the millions of dollars the United States paid China to fight the Japanese. Ostensibly, Hemingway was there as a foreign war correspondent reporting on the Burma Road. But he reveled in being a government operative. Peter Moreira, who has worked as a foreign correspondent in Hong Kong and South Korea, brought Hemingway’s stint as a James Bond to the public consciousness with his book, “Hemingway on the China Front.” And he will discuss that work at 6 Thursday night at Ketchum’s Community Library as the keynote speaker of the Fourth Annual Ernest Hemingway Symposium. “Because his book was somewhat counter to knowledge, it didn’t see a lot of interest among Hemingway scholars,” said Sandra Hofferber, who heads up the library’s Regional history Department which holds much of the Hemingway in Idaho collection. “But Peter spent years going through historical archives researching that story.” This year’s free Hemingway symposium, which will be held Thursday through Saturday at the library, will focus on the theme, “Hemingway and Politics.” “Some people call Hemingway apolitical. But a man doesn’t

fight three wars if he has no political leanings,” said Hofferber. “It was common knowledge that Hemingway liked being in the middle of the action. But, as someone who struggled with death and dying, I don’t think he would have put himself on the line if he hadn’t had a cause he cared about. “The Hemingway story shows that we’ve been paying people to fight our wars for a long time,” Hofferber added. The symposium will also feature Boise State University professors Clyde Moneyhun, Mitch Wieland, Scott Yenor, Clay Morgan, Jacky O’Connor and Shelton Woods. Here’s the schedule. All events take place at The Community Library at 415 Spruce Ave. All are free except for the story workshop:

Thanks to Blaine County from Korea By Si-Hyung Kim, for The Weekly Sun

I am writing this to thank the kind people of Blaine County. My family and I are from South Korea. We came to Idaho Falls, where I am working for a year, last October. Unfortunately, we were in a car accident at the intersection of Highways 20 and 75 several weeks ago. After the accident, I could not open the car door but some citizens helped us. We sat down by the highway, my wife hugged our daughter and I held our son. A lot of very kind people began to gather. A man checked our condition. My daughter vomited twice and had pain in her back and neck. So, he took some measures to help her, and the rest of my family. He then arranged for an ambulance to take us to the hospital. He knew my family is poor at English, so he asked the rescue people to take us to one room in a hospital. This was a very good decision. I thought he was a doctor accidentally passing by. Regretfully, I did not thank him when we left in the ambulance. The accident was about 6:30 p.m., so the sunshine was still strong. A man and woman held a blanket to block the sunshine from us for a long time. That was a very helpful measure. I told them not to hold the blanket any longer but they kept saying, “It’s OK.” They also gave us comforting words. The ambulance workers checked my family’s condition and served us well, especially my two children. They gave dolls to our children. We arrived at St. Luke’s Hospital—we did not even know what city we were in. Doctors and nurses took very good care of my family. I was told my family had no severe problems but that we should stay near the hospital that night and watch one family member for symptoms of possible complications.

The kind people who held the blanket came to the hospital to check our condition and invited our family to stay the night with them. I gladly welcomed that because I had no acquaintances nearby. They talked and waited with us at least three hours before taking us to their home at 1 a.m. When we arrived at their home, their two dogs, Sugar and Spicy, welcomed us. My daughter liked them. The two people arranged a room and served us hot tea. The next morning I found my condition was still not good and they took considerable time to make arrangements to get my family home to Idaho Falls the next day. The two kind people are Dick and Joanne Wetherell, who are the owners of RE/MAX of Sun Valley. I asked Joanne the name of the man who had helped us and she told me the man was the mayor of Ketchum, Randy Hall. My wife and I were so surprised! Also, with the kind help of our car insurance agent (Progressive, John Hendrix), I smoothly handled most of the matters related to this accident. I want to thank all who helped us, through this article. I know the United States helped our country so many times when we had difficulties in the past and the two countries have maintained very good relations up to now. I believe most Koreans, including me, still appreciate your country’s help. In this accident, my family and I personally received hospitality and help from many kind Americans. I will not forget them in our life. Once again, thanks to all the many people I met from this accident.

Noahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ark in the Sonoran Desert Why Sheep Are Sheared


â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to protect the land for future generations and against future generations.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Josiah Austin BY BALI SZABO


ast week I covered the effect of a Southwestern land reclamation effort on both sides of the border. This massive private effort Bali Szabo by Josiah and Valer Austin has revitalized the landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greenery. The slow-release retention dams (trincheras and gabions) slowed erosion and topsoil loss and re-established plant life. With the loss of water and greenery comes the destruction of habitat for virtually all animals. A diverse habitat starts from the bottom upâ&#x20AC;Ś from bacterial health up to cougars. A thorough, self-sustaining food chain starts small and gradually grows in size, both horizontally (numbers) and vertically (size). The existence of one depends upon the existence of the other. The same is true in human affairs. Just look at the importance of visitors to this Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. The networks are not just biological; the tentacles extend to people. In Mexico, the villagers stopped building trincheras because the young were leaving to find work. The Mexican government now works with the villagers to help restore the land and so provide work and keep their populations at least stable. The Austinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts have provided a lot of jobs because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of work to do. Nearby ranchers are starting to build these rock dams and are seeing similar results. They are bragging about

Late afternoon in the Organ Pipe National Monument.Photo:

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;theirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; woodpeckers, and even jaguars. They no longer shoot them on sight. What the Austins are doing can be replicated. All manner of organizations, state and NGOs, now come to roost here to observe and document the wildlife, the job generation or the altered grazing practices. These ranches have become laboratories. Photographers are setting up remote-control cameras to get pictures, especially at night. (Calvin Kleinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Obsession works like catnip, and animals large and small stop to revel in it, and even mate next to it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely an aphrodisiac.) The one organization that obstructs the Austins is Homeland Security. They want their fence with a DMZ on both sides of it. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want waterways, and could care less about animals trying to get around the fence to access water and food. No doubt they will also fight animal overpasses that allow for migration. U.S. Fish and Wildlife has helped by working to restore parcels on

its side of the fence abutting the Austinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; property. The Austins are hoping that governments everywhere will invest in this low-tech solution to revive an earth that can be revived. The animals here have been re-introduced, returned on their own or have taken refuge as if it was Noahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ark. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a short list of some species types repopulating the area: Yaqui chubb and catfish and another dozen other species of fish; mud turtles, leopard frogs, songbirds, bats, raptors, Gouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turkey, woodpeckers, the raccoon-like coati, hog-nosed skunk, mule deer, Coues white-tailed deer, black bears, bobcats and jaguars. Desert bighorn sheep and pronghorn are still a work in progress. For more details, go to CNN. com or tws

heep grow wool continuously. If they are not sheared at least once a year, they become very stressed and uncomfortable, especially when it is hot and humid. Eventually, the wool will become soiled and matted, possibly unhealthy, and more difficult to remove. This is the main purposed for shearing sheep. Cutting or shaving the wool off of a sheep is called shearing. Shearing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt a sheep. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just like getting a haircut. However, shearing requires skill so that the sheep is shorn efficiently and quickly without causing cuts or injury to the sheep or shearer. Most sheep are sheared with electric shears or shearing machines. Some sheep are sheared manually with scissors or hand blades. While some farmers shear their own sheep, many

erc beat

hire professional sheep shearers. In many countries, including the United States, there is a growing shortage of qualified sheep shearers. Many states hold annual sheep-shearing schools. Sheep are usually sheared once per year, usually before lambing or in the spring before the onset of warm weather. Sheep with long fleeces are sometimes sheared twice a year. Feeder lambs are sometimes sheared to make them more comfortable during the summer. Shearing prior to lambing results in a cleaner environment for baby lambs. It also keeps the fleeces cleaner.

Bus Tour Teaches Ketchum and Sun Valley History STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


o you know why they built the Sun Valley Lodge out of concrete, rather than the abundant pine nearby? Do you know where Ernest Hemingway had his last supper? You can learn the answers to those questions and more on the Sun Valley Story Tour. The free tour departs by bus every Friday at 3:45 p.m. from the Sun Valley Visitor Center at 491 Sun Valley Road in Ketchum. It passes by such sites as The Christiania restaurant where Hemingway and his wife Mary shared one last supper before the author took his life; the home of Horace Lewis, who ran the iconic ore wagons up and down the steep Trail Creek Road; and the site of the original Sun Valley rodeo. Ketchumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historical society started the tours this summer to offer visitors a way to learn more about Ketchum and Sun Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we thought it would be a good way to increase the profile of the Ketchum-Sun Valley Heritage and Ski Museum,â&#x20AC;? said Sharon Wellsandt, who takes turns leading tours with her husband John Wellsandt, Jim and Wendy Jaquet and Bob and Lynne Nicholson. On one Friday afternoon, tourgoers hailing from places like Bonneville, Utah, and New York City crowded into the Glamour Roomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an old bank vault in the visitor center turned into a display of Hemingway memorabilia. There, tour guide Jim Jaquet handed out free packets containing copies of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sun Valley Magazine,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;101 Things to Do in Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;? and maps and brochures as he answered questions about Hemingway and his wives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hemingwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first three wives were all from St. Louis. Gertrude Stein said anyone who marries three girls from St. Louis hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learned very much,â&#x20AC;? he quipped. As the bus rolled along, Jaquet recounted how publicist Steve Hannigan coined the Sun Valley name to lure people who might have been afraid the area was too cold. He brought in celebrities and put Sun Valley on the map with the movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sun Valley Serenade,â&#x20AC;? Jaquet said. Ketchum, by contrast, was named for David Ketchum, who was only here a year. There were several prominent people associated with mining for whom the town could have been named, but apparently they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want their name associated with the town, he added. And the postmaster wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow the name Leadville, since a Colorado town

Hank Hoeks of The Netherlands listens as tour guide Jim Jaquet describes how Ketchumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more prominent citizens apparently declined to have their names offered as the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s namesake. â&#x20AC;&#x153;David Ketchum was only here a year but he seemed to be a nice fellow. People liked the sound of his name, I guess.â&#x20AC;?

already had claim to that name. Out Warm Springs, Jaquet pointed out Guyer Hot Springs, which provided hot water for the old Bald Mountain Hot Springs in Ketchum. Eventually, the pipes broke and made a tremendous mess, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They built a hotel out here but it burned. When you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a fire department, you need to build in concrete. Averell Harriman learned that lesson and built the Sun Valley Lodge out of concrete,â&#x20AC;? he said, describing how Gilbert Stanley Underwood, who designed Yosemiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ahwahnee Hotel and Yellowstoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Old Faithful Lodge, had designed the lodge. The original lodge was going to be 120 rooms, but Hannigan said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide publicity for something worth less than $1 million. The finished product was 220 rooms and just over $1 million, Jaquet said. Among those taking the tour was Hailey resident Johanna Sample, who had her husband Russell and her sister and brother-in-law Hank and Helena Hoeks of The Netherlands in tow. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to learn something about Sun Valley,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Discuss Long-Term Care Insurance BY MICHELLE SANDOZ


recently had a close friend whose wife had a brain aneurysmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a very rare event for a woman just over 50. While the prognosis is not positive, we are thankful she is alive! This terrible event occurred at the hospital where they had just arrived to visit his uncle. He later called me to inquire about what are his options for her future care. What is long-term care coverage, Medicare and Medicaid? He had many questions. In this article I would like to explain what is long-term care and long-term care insurance. Long-term care (LTC) is the health industry name for care and related expenses associated with an extended illness or injury, including rehabilitation and maintenance of a person who is disabled and cannot care for himself and who is expected to need care for an extended period of time. Advances in medical technology have made it possible to recover from many medical conditions that previously resulted in death; however, the patient may still experience a lengthy period of disability and the resulting necessary care related to chronic conditions. Because this is a relatively

new phenomenon, our traditional sources of financial help for these expenses do not address periods of custodial long-term care. Ninety-five percent of longterm care in the United States is custodial in nature. Private health insurance and disability income coverage do not reimburse these costs, nor does traditional government program assistance such as Medicare. Both private and public programs were established to help fund short-term medical expenses, and a gap currently exists in most peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial planning. Considering how hard we work for the majority of our lives with an eye toward retiring, it is important to give educated and considerable consideration to protect our retirement. One way we can do this is with a longterm care insurance policy. What is Long -erm Care Insurance? Long-term care insurance is a type of insurance that individuals can buy to help them finance any potential future long-term care needs they may have. Sometimes employers offer employees long-term care insurance coverage as an employee benefit as well. Depending on the policy purchased, LTC insurance could help a person pay for

extended care in a nursing home or assisted living facility, or it could also help pay for the cost of extended home-based care. LTC insurance policies are designed to fill the gap that has been created between current available resources and the considerable cost of long-term care. LTC coverage offers asset and income protection when the need for LTC becomes necessary. Premiums for LTC insurance policies are based on your age at enrollment; the younger oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age at the time of application, the lower oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiums will be throughout the life of the policy. If you have any questions, or if you would like to learn more about long-term care insurance and receive a free consultation, please contact Michelle Sandoz at Insurance Specialists for more information. And please keep Sylvia in your thoughts and prayers for a complete recovery. tws

Thespians Take On Shakespeare

The Business of America PHOTO & ARTWORK BY BALI SZABO


wo widely reviewed recent books, The End of Men and the Rise of Women, by Hanna Rosin, and The Richer Sex: How the New Majority of Female Breadwinners Is Transforming Love, Sex and Family, by Liza Mundy, have highlighted what happens to women when men fail (they don’t discuss the growth of domestic violence). The books basically deal with the growing numerical majority of women in the workplace. Women are rising out of the ashes of men. Globalization and the decline of male-dominated industries like manufacturing, construction and finance has been coupled with the expansion of the lower-wage service sector, which prefers women. In this last (and still current?) recession, of the 7.5 million lost jobs, 75 percent were in male-dominated industries. To make matters worse, men are not adapting well. They keep waiting for the jobs to come back, sticking to old patterns of behavior, when they should be going back to school to re-qualify for the technically demanding jobs that are out there. Women are proving more adaptable to shifts in the job market and they react more positively to job changes (they move up). One observer in The Wall Street Journal remarked that “many men are engaging in a sit-down strike.” While women still lag behind in the boardroom (and on Wall Street), they’re catching up. The old either/or dilemma of Suzy homemaker/mom or career, but not both, has broken down because it was a false dichotomy; 71 percent of mothers with children under 18 are working women. Yahoo CEO Marissa Meyer took the job while she was pregnant. The few women in corporate leadership positions are the pioneers for future generations. Facebook CEO Sheryl Sandberg, for-

mer Hewlett-Packard CEO Carla Fiorina and the current Meg Whitman, CEO Denise Morrison of Campbell’s Soup, and CEO Virginia Rometty of IBM are a few of the standouts. Changing sexual and social mores have allowed many women to have both career and family. Technology has become a liberator. Laptops, teleconferencing, telecommuting, mobile, on-the-go decision-making has enabled flex time. More and more corporations are family-friendly. Daycare has grown exponentially (it’s the new extended family), as has paid leaves of absence and insurance. Author Richard Whitmire of Why Men Fail remarked that we can’t control the global economic transformations, but we can re-jigger our educational system. A recent federal study showed 38 percent of girls at the eighth-grade level were literacy proficient, as opposed to 18 percent of boys. Boys are slower to develop literacy skills and early testing makes them look bad. They see school as a place for girls, sissies and nerds. With lots of competition for their attention, the system loses them, and they are not ready for college. This can be changed. Fair enough, but it’s not all. In college in the 1960s, I chased skirts while the skirts chased grades. Women had higher grade averages and graduation rates. They paid attention, studied and got into less trouble. They were better students. Today, they’re flooding four-year, junior and community colleges. Educated, they marry later, or not at all, and they postpone having children (four in 10 women have never married—bye-bye ‘spinster’). Freed from the shackles of mandated domesticity, they’re starting businesses and flooding the workplace. Although the service sector absorbs a lot of them, they’re showing up in strength in pharmacology, medicine, law, finance, veterinary medicine, clinical psychology, and more. Women in their

Rendition of Van Gogh after Jean Francois Millet.

20s now earn more than men in their 20s. The fastest growing professions in today’s economy are female-dominated. New societal and global realities need new paradigms as gender roles dissolve. We can’t dance on the graves of men. We have to move forward together as equals. We can’t do that until we throw the arcane dominant/submissive social model into the Dumpster and embrace an upgrade—the happy, successful and empowered woman. tws

Maricich Doles Out Functional Medicine STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


r. Maria Maricich wants to see you before you get sick. Far better, she says, to address your weaknesses before they cripple you. “The problem with Western medicine is that it’s diseasebased—we don’t seek care unless we’re in a health crisis,” she said. “People go to conventional doctors when they have a broken clavicle or are feeling ill. I want to prevent them from having the heart attack in the first place.” Maricich practices functional medicine, which uses a combination of Chinese medicine and Western medicine to deal with the root causes of disease and imbalances. She acts like a medical detective looking for patterns in blood work that indicate hidden allergens, environmental toxins, inflammations, nutritional and digestive imbalances, infections and other things that cause hormones and other body functions to be out of whack. Once she identifies the weakness, she uses supplements and other tools to bring the person back into balance. You might say Maricich was destined to become a health practitioner. Her father, Herman Maricich—a professional ice skater—had her on ice skates and skis before she could barely walk. Her mother, Connie Chesnel, was a healing arts buff, taking her daughter to massage therapists and energy healers when she was in her teens. A stint as the top U.S. downhill ski racer, the No. 10 downhill skier in the world, and a 1984 Olympian further convinced her of the necessity of

giving her body an edge through good nutrition and exercise. “When I quit racing I was interested in alternative health but I wanted to do something legitimate,” she recalled. “One night I dreamed I was going to be a chiropractor but I didn’t know anything about it. I went to the library and could only find a few paragraphs in a book, but it talked about removing nerve interferences in the spine so the body could heal itself. I thought, ‘That’s cool.’ ” The blond-haired, blue-eyed skier spent seven years at a college near Atlanta, Ga., taking many of the same courses general practitioners do, with the exception that she took more neurology courses and none pertaining to surgery. Then she took additional studies in applied kinesiology, functional endocrinology and hormone balancing. When she finished, she returned to the Sun Valley area where she practiced briefly under another chiropractor before opening her Quantum Healing Arts, now on the third floor of the Gail Severn Gallery building in Ketchum. “I went to school in Georgia because I was tired of winter af-

ter all those years of ski racing. But I missed the mountains,” she said. Many of those who come to her have digestive issues that range from feeling bloated to having colitis. Many are gluten-sensitive—a condition that, left untreated, can lead to autoimmune diseases, diabetes and even Alzheimer’s disease, Maricich said. Insomnia—another major source of referrals—could be caused by an imbalance in the brain or nervous system that keeps the brain from calming down sufficiently, hormonal imbalances or problems with the digestive or immune system, she added. Maricich may use a urine test to see if mitochondria—the powerhouse in cells—is working properly. She uses neurological tests, such as gauging how the eye responds to light, to look at attention deficit disorders in children.

Dr. Maria Maricich uses spinal checks and other tools to detect weaknesses before they become full-blown health crises.

She found metabolic imbalances in a client who was a recovering alcoholic so she used nutrients to create new neurotransmitters in that client. She’s helped other clients trying to lose weight, including her office secretary who lost 70 pounds, by giving them supplements to balance their body

systems and getting rid of wrong things in the intestine. “It’s not just about willpower. Certain imbalances can cause cravings and make it impossible for you to have success,” she said. “Whatever the problem, I want to dig deeper and figure out what the symptoms are, not tws cover them up.”

“Main Street Service” The Valley is a great place to live and work. We know because we live and work here, too. We consider insurance more than a profession. To us, it’s a chance to provide peace of mind and help our customers—who we are proud to also call neighbors—maintain their quality of life even when the unexpected happens. There’s no need for a special coupon or secret handshake to get our best rates. Because in The Wood River Valley and at Bisnett, there are no strangers…only friends we haven’t met yet.

iane Vickery, formerly of Atlas Tax Services, is now the proud owner of Abacus Tax Services, which she opened in February of this year. “My friends thought I was crazy to be opening a new business is these tough economic times, and especially in the middle of tax season. It was a total leap of faith, and I believe that is why it has worked out so well. I also think one of the best things about our small Valley is the accountability required to succeed in business. Word of mouth can be your best friend, or your worst. For me, it has been the best type of advertising I could hope for. Besides The Sun, of course!” she adds with a laugh. Diane is pictured here with Claudia Lupita, who is interning with her as her office manager. “Claudia is a huge asset to my company. She learns fast, and

has an amazing work ethic,” says Diane. “The thing I like most about my work is helping people. This gives me a sense of satisfaction I cannot describe,” she admits “Whether it be by finding them every tax credit legally available to them, or by offering them the best rates in the Valley, I try to save my clients as much money as I possibly can,” Diane adds. Diane also offers full-charge bookkeeping services. “I recently took over bookkeeping for two hotels here in the Valley. After I got the books straightened out, I started looking for ways to save them money. After some research, I found that they were being double taxed on consumables. I was able to save them thousands of dollars a year. I think we all need to help each other save money these days.” tws

he Bead Shop owner and “lead beader” Tammy E. Schofield moved to the Wood River Valley in 1995. She says she had no direct connections to the Valley prior to moving here. She has owned The Bead Shop since May, 2009. As for spare-time interests, Tammy says, “I have no spare time! That is a fallacy. I am very busy with my beautiful 15-yearold daughter, trying to be the best mom I can be.” Schofield says she enjoys serving her community, and has had the pleasure of being instrumental in the creation of some really great programs, such as the Bellevue Haunted Forest which, among other things, helps to raise money for The Howard Preserve in Bellevue, and the Free Outdoor Movies in Bellevue. Schofield feels an overwhelming sense of pride when people approach her and say, “You’re doing the… we really enjoy it, and ‘thank you!’” Schofield says just knowing how much her community appreciates these things is such a reward. Prior to purchasing The Bead Shop, Schofield had no background in retail. She says it has been a great experience and that she is truly indebted to Mary and Ray Letourneau for allowing her to purchase the special business. Her background was in the legal field. In addition, she has certification as a community and economic developer, but has always been into art. “My medium was charcoals and pastels; I’ve just changed my medium!” she adds. Schofield continues, “Truly, what makes this space special is the service you get when you walk in. No matter the level of artist you feel you are, every level is made comfortable here. We are the only studio of its kind in the area. We provide the tools and the freedom for you to be the designer!” tws

The Board Bin and Girl Street


726-1222 • 180 E. 4th Street, Ketchum

arin Reichow has owned the Board Bin and Girl Street in Ketchum for the past 24 years. Even though her background is in sales, bookkeeping, merchandising and buying, Karin says, “I actually have a degree in social work and had very little business background when we opened the store 24 years ago. “I have always had a good head for numbers, so figuring out the books came pretty naturally. Since we started out as more of a board sports shop, we were able to grow our selection of clothing and shoes hand in hand with the action sports industry. The growth and selection of both men’s and women’s soft goods within the board sports market has been huge since our early days in business. I get to pick out some really fun fashionable women’s pieces and at the same time stay true to our shop’s roots. “The Board Bin is unique in that we are able to offer something for everyone in the family. I love it when a mom brings her kid in for a skateboard or pair of pants and ends up buying a Free People dress or pair of Tom’s shoes for herself. I get to create the yang to balance the ample amount of yin that goes along with a board shop!” In her spare time, Karin enjoys snowboarding, camping, hiking, traveling and spending tws time with her kids.

ari Larsen moved to the Wood River Valley in 1968. With a growing desire to have her own salon, she established Cari’s Hair Care in 1975 in a small home salon in the China Gardens subdivision in Hailey. Soon outgrowing her home salon, and with a growing clientele, she relocated to 503 N. Main St., where she became an employer and still worked daily behind the chair. During the growing and building of her business, Cari and her husband Dwain raised three sons, all of whom graduated from Wood River High School and have gone on to successful careers in their chosen fields. Cari is proud to say that she has now served the Valley for 35 years. In addition to hair and salon services, Cari has also recently added Top Shelf Consignment to her salon. The consignment shop has a wonderful variety of gently used shoes, coats and clothing — including some dazzling cocktail dresses

to have these lifelong relationships with people I really love and care about. Some of my dearest friends sit in my chair weekly.” There is always something new and exciting brewing at Cari’s Hair Care & Day Spa! tws

St. Luke’s awarded Sandra Jussel, M.T. (ASCP), the 2012 President’s Award for Exemplary Performance. The announcement came during an award ceremony October 4 at the BSU Stueckle Sky Center in Boise. Each year the entire hospital staff may nominate a colleague who exemplifies significant dedication, performance and contributions to St. Luke’s. The leadership staff then votes on the colleague, whom they believe is most deserving of the recognition. “It is a distinct honor to be nominated by one’s peers and then selected for this prestigious award for exemplary performance above and beyond the expectations of their job,” noted Cody Langbehn, St. Luke’s CEO. Jussel received the award along with 13 of her peers across the St. Luke’s health system. She has worked for St. Luke’s for 14 years, and currently works as the St. Luke’s Wood River laboratory manager.

The SEP IRA: An Effective Retirement Tool for SelfEmployed Individuals and Small Business Owners


s you juggle all the day-today responsibilities that come with running your own business and taking care of your family, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to put off long-term needs like planning for retirement. You may already be familiar with basic retirement planning tools like IRAs, but what other options are available? Getting started on the road to retirement can seem time-consuming and even a bit intimidating, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be. A good first step would be to consider one of the most popular options among self-employed individuals like you, the SEP IRA. SEP IRAs combine many of the advantages of more complicated retirement plans with the simplicity of an IRA. They are easy to set up and manage, require no annual government reporting, and generally feature low administrative fees. With a SEP IRA, the employer is responsible for funding the plan through tax-deductible contributions, and when contributing to the plan, contributions must be made for all eligible employees. An eligible employee is defined as anyone who is age 21 or older, performed service for you in three of the last five years and has earned at least $550 from you in the year the contribution is intended. A major advantage of SEP IRAs over traditional IRAs is that SEP IRAs allow for significantly larger contributions. In 2012, the maximum annual contribution is 20 percent for

self-employed individuals or 25 percent of incorporated business employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; compensation (capped at $250,000), up to a limit of $50,000 per participant. As the employer, you must contribute the same percentage of compensation to all eligible employee accounts that you contribute to your own. Employer contributions are entirely discretionary, meaning that they can vary in amount from year to year. Employers even have the flexibility to not make a contribution in any given year. SEP IRA contributions are tax-deductible for the business and are allowed in addition to traditional IRA or Roth IRA contributions. For some sole proprietors who file single, this may be one of the simplest ways to have a deductible contribution toward their retirement. Adjusted gross income limits and participation in a qualified plan may prevent an individual from qualifying for traditional IRA deductions or making Roth IRA contributions. Please consult your tax advisor for details. While the SEP IRA may work well for you, are there any options available to stay-at-home spouses who want to invest for retirement? Fortunately, yes. A non-working spouse can make a deductable contribution (if he or she qualifies) of up to $5,000 ($6,000 if age 50 or older) to an IRA, provided the couple files a joint tax return and the working spouse has enough earned income to cover the contribution.

Lori Nurge

Note that if the working spouse participates in an employersponsored retirement plan, the deduction of the contribution to the non-working spouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IRA may be limited, depending on their joint adjusted gross income. As you decide to start planning for the future, consider enlisting the help of a professional. A financial advisor can help you learn more about the SEP IRA, spousal IRA contributions, and the other retirement planning options available to self-employed individuals. Lori Nurge is a first vice president/investments and branch manager with Stifel, Nicolaus & Company, Incorporated, member SIPC and New York Stock Exchange. She can be reached by calling the firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ketchum office at (208) 622-8720 or toll-free at (877) 635-9531. tws

The Pixel Bakery 721-1220 •

ancy Glick moved to Ketchum in 2004 after nearly a decade spent in Seattle’s high-tech scene. In an effort to escape the high-tech sector, she shifted her focus to the creative side and discovered a love for the combination that art and technology. It created a vibe that she just couldn’t shake. This discovery was the birth of The Pixel Bakery, her freelance web and graphic design business. Nancy slowly grew her clientele to a point where her business could sustain a full-time commitment. She has created a team that focuses on filling the gap for businesses that need a marketing department only some of the time. “I love the challenges that different clients present. Some clients challenge my creativity; some challenge my intellect; and most challenge me to combine the two,” chimes Nancy. “That’s what I love about design. It allows you to take a complex message and turn it into something that people can relate to.” Nancy’s youth was spent in Spokane, Wash., on a tiny cattle ranch. From the age of seven, she spent all day, every day, riding her horse. When it comes to enjoying this Valley, Nancy

feels there is no reason to limit oneself to just a few things. “If you’ve never done it, try it. If you like it, keep doing it,” is her motto. Nancy earned her bachelor’s degree in communication and journalism from Gonzaga University and still rides her horse, Bombay, as much as possible. Since returning to Ketchum, Nancy met and married her husband, Josh; has become a member of the Mud Honey Cycling team; and volunteers with the Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research. tws

In her spare time, Kristy enjoys spending time with her family, making jewelry, traveling, and watching TV. Says Kristy, “I worked in television for 10 years before moving to the Wood River Valley, where I transitioned into jewelry designing. Two and a half years ago I bought Willow Papery and I have been busy building it into the store it is today. “Willow Papery is a one-stop stationery and gift store. We carry many different lines of greeting cards, boxed stationery and gifts. We can personalize a wide variety of boxed stationery, usually while you wait. Additionally, we work closely with brides for their wedding needs—everything from invitations to napkins to day-of-event products such as programs, menus and place cards.  Our ability to produce an order in a very short amount of time is something that is truly unique to our store.” tws

ne of the most difficult challenges a parent faces is learning to let go. Like other parents, I have had to make tough decisions: When should I let my daughter ride her bike around the block alone? At what age should I drop my son off at the movies with his friends? Preparing my children for independence requires balancing my fears with helping them grow into strong and capable adults. Business owners also must learn to let go. The questions are different—Is it time to delegate the bookkeeping to someone else? Should I turn over the daily account management of my largest client to a staff member?—but the process is the same. Making business decisions like these can keep you awake at night, but letting go is critical to the growth of your firm. Some business owners gradually let go over time, while others make sudden changes in how their business is operating. Determining the right path for you begins with evaluating progress toward growth goals and redefining your leadership role. Ultimately, you can learn to delegate with confidence. Evaluate Growth Goals A business owner who is functioning at a strategic level is able to drive progress toward business objectives. If your firm is not achieving its goals, perhaps your leadership role needs to shift. Take a moment to reflect on your growth goals. What is it worth to achieve those goals? Having a strong vision creates clarity around your role as the driver of success. Redefine Your Leadership Role Make a list of everything you do in your business. Now ask yourself: What is the best use of my time with respect to my growth goals? Circle the items on the list that qualify. Add new items that don’t appear on the list. The ones that don’t make the cut are the ones that could and should be delegated. If you feel everything on the list is critical, ask yourself different questions: What is it costing me to be involved in this activity? How does that compare with the benefit? For example, if you spend an entire day tracking down a lost customer order, it may cost you a contact with a new prospective customer. Give yourself permission to lead. When you stand in the viewpoint of “I am the leader,” it’s clear that you should not be intimately involved in most of the daily tasks of the business. Delegate With Confidence Delegate? The very word might make you think, “I am the only one who can do this,” or “Someone might steal from me if I stop doing the books,” or “There is no way I could train someone to take over this client.” If delegating brings up this voice in your head, read on: There are ways to minimize the risk. The first step in delegating is to clearly define the workflow process for a selected function. Next, identify checkpoints where you need to be involved in the process. Third, determine the best resource for the job. Is there someone on your staff who can do it? Can you outsource the task? Can you justify hiring a new employee to take on the responsibilities? Letting go will position your firm for future growth. It will allow you to increase your organizational capabilities, make the firm less dependent on you, and develop your skills as a leader. You might even be able to take a long-awaited vacation. tws

Parenting Coach to Offer Self-Esteem Tips and More BY KAREN BOSSICK


ot down-time with your child? Parenting expert Kim Fanter proposes that you turn it into productive time. Fanter, who will lead four workshops Oct. 26 and 27 in Ketchum, says she takes advantage of â&#x20AC;&#x153;captive timeâ&#x20AC;? waiting at the airport, doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office or elsewhere with open-ended questions dealing with friendships, family, school, ethics, values, beliefs, sports and other categories. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have questions that you can carry in your purse or stash in the glove compartment,â&#x20AC;? said Fanter, whose book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Time Well Spentâ&#x20AC;? offers questions for creating dialogue with children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One might ask: Why is a reputation important? Another: Which sports do you think should get more or less attention from the media? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re designed to get the kids to think about things. Sometimes kids come up with an inappropriate answer and that can lead to a great discussion.â&#x20AC;? Discussing such questions also serves as a mind rehearsal, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inevitably, that scenario that you talked about will come to fruition and chances are the kids will know how to respond because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already thought about it,â&#x20AC;? she said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never too early to start, Fanter said. Children develop a concept of what a healthy authority figure is by age two and they already understand if a parent is too controlling or doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

She will lead four workshops at All Things Sacred in The Galleria in Ketchum in conjunction with the Sun Valley Wellness Institute.

movie review

Do Blondes Have More Fun? Trouble With the Plot Blonde by Carole Joyce Oats, 2001, 752 pages BY MARGOT VAN HORN


arilyn Monroe: 50 years laterâ&#x20AC;? said the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ad. It was Aug. 8, 2012, and The Community Libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lecture Room was full. All were there to hear two-time Oscar-winner, director, producer, and writer Terry Sanders as well as to view his 1964 movie of Marilyn. Of course, I was present as well and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what brought the marvelous book Blonde back into my mind. I really enjoy all of the very many books the prolific Carole Joyce Oats has written. She has a special way with her words and thoughts. Her novels have a â&#x20AC;&#x153;differentâ&#x20AC;? aspect to them. I think that her story lines are always unique. Her thinking processes must be phenomenal. But I especially was pulled in by Blonde. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her take on Marilyn Monroe and, frankly, I think a very realistic one. Somehow or other, Oats

has gotten in Marilynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skin and everything about MMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life all of a sudden falls into place for the reader. It starts from the very beginning of Marilynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life and goes through until the very endâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;told by Norma Jeane Baker, I suppose that the ending is more speculative than any of â&#x20AC;&#x153;the rest of the story,â&#x20AC;? but somehow I think that probably could also have been very true. Oats must have done a ton of research to have written such an ambitious work. Publisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Weekly uses words such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramatic, provocative, unsettling, suggestiveâ&#x20AC;? in their book description. Penzler Pick says:â&#x20AC;? If you like biographies, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll like Blonde. If you like novels, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll like Blonde. If you like mysteries, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll like Blonde.â&#x20AC;? I totally agree with these quotes and if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t experienced this read yet, NOW is the time to read it! Once again, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the 752-page length scare you because you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to put it down and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go faster than tws you want it to. Enjoy!!!!

Idahoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 8th Annual Crosstoberfest In the eyes of many, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing shy of a match made in heaven: bicycle racing meets beer, they fall in love and decide to throw a party! The annual Idaho Crosstoberfest presented by Scott Sports is just such a celebration. Combining two days of cyclocross races with a craft beer festival, Crosstoberfestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply called in the Gem Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;will be celebrating its eighth year this year, October 26-27. Idaho Crosstoberfest was the brainchild of Billy Olson, a former professional road bike racer and owner of what is considered to be one of the bestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and perhaps onlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;bike repair shop/beer geek haven/burger bars in the nation, the Power House Pub &

Bike Studio, according to Outside and Bike magazines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This event is just a lot of fun,â&#x20AC;? said Billy about the truly grassroots event that has been steadily growing since its inception. Both the pub and Crosstoberfest take place in Hailey, about a dozen miles south of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original destination ski resort of Sun Valley. Close to 2,000 riders, racing fans and beer lovers are expected to attend this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Idaho Crosstoberfest, which features races for just about every age category and almost 100 different beers from more than 20 breweries from across the globe. Live music and locally grown and raised Bavarianstyle food is also on the lineup. Info:

Corey Weatherly Benefit this Saturday The Idaho Auxiliary of the Wives Behind the Badge is holding a benefit this Saturday, October 20, for an injured law enforcement officer. The Black and Blue Benefit will be held at the Blaine County Gun Club to help Detective Corey Weatherly, whose neck was broken in two places this past July while working private security for a concert event in Ketchum when a man fell off a roof onto him. Corey was LifeFlighted and underwent emergency

surgery. He is working to recover from the severe nerve and tissue damage caused by the fall and fighting his way back into his uniform. The event, featuring two shooting competitions, a silent auction and dinner, is open to anyone who wants to participate. The public is encouraged to attend and support a devoted public servant and a worthy cause. Info:

The Punch line

2 bumblebees BY JONATHAN KANE


he new Clint Eastwood movie Trouble With The Curve is not that bad. The problem is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too good, either. And the problem isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really with the performances. Eastwood and co-star Amy Adams both do good work, but the real problem is that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen this before and the picture is breaking no new ground. The first odd fact is that Eastwood is starring in the movie at all. After Gran Torino, he said he was retired from acting but here he is again playing the loveable curmudgeon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this time an aging baseball scout, doing war with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Moneyballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; computer geeks who were the star of that movie. In this film the old scout wins out with his talent to be able to tell a great hitter just by the sound of the ball off the bat. Score one for the old geezers. The film is also directed by Robert Lorenz, Eastwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longtime assistant director, and is produced by Eastwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company. Essentially a baseball yarn, the real story revolves around an estranged relationship between father and daughter. Adams has lost her mother at an early age, only to be raised and abandoned on multiple occasions by her father. A high-priced attorney, she has baseball in her blood, and when Eastwoodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old friend, played by John Goodman, worries that Eastwood is losing it, he sends Adams along on a scouting trip to watch over the old man. Of course, they are like oil and water, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the fun. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give away the end, but guess who wins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the geeks or Clint? Along the way is some of the most inane dialogue uttered in this or any other season. Screenwriter Randy Brown wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be winning any awards for his work. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not forget that the always improving Justin Timberlake shows up for some romantic diversion. The bottom line is that Trouble With The Curve would be perfect to watch on cable on a cold, snowy afternoon, but may not merit a trip to the theater. tws

Food Day to Feature Feng Shui, from my table to yours Nutrition, and Cookbook Talk Stuffed Zucchini By Pat Billhardt



have always loved to cook and even though our kids are long gone, I still enjoy preparing a lovely meal every evening. Jack and I live in Elkhorn from June through October; the remainder of the year is spent in Connecticut. I kind of made up the Stuffed Zucchini recipe, since we both love zucchini. I have heard of a similar recipe but have never seen one in a cookbook. I do vary the ingredients and people should feel free to experiment with different spices or other ingredients (i.e., sausage, etc.) Another squash recipe that my family loves: acorn squash, cut in half, clean out the insides, cut-side down in 1/4 inch of water in a baking pan and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Peel and cut up an apple, sauté until almost soft, add brown sugar and a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon. Turn over squash and fill the cavities with this mixture. Put

The presentation, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, is being held at the Wood River YMCA in conjunction with Food Day 2012. “Inspired Everyday Living” author Laura Carlin, a relative newcomer to Ketchum, will talk about cookware and ways to store items. Kathryn Guylay, whose Nurture organization offers healthy eating tips and recipes for youngsters, will prepare a couple of items such as pomegranate and pumpkin seed tabouli and butternut squash soup. And Ketchum photographer Paulette Phlipot will talk about the inspiration behind her cookbook “Ripe.” “It will be an entertaining presentation,” said Guylay. “I went home after listening to Laura talk at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival, rearranged a few things and felt so much better. “We’ll offer a fun, informative quiz giving people a look at what’s actually in some of their foods. Some ice creams, for instance, have 25 ingredients, including all kinds of gum, when you can make them with just a few ingredients like cream, sugar, vanilla and eggs. And food coloring is made of dried bugs—that’s one that really gets the kids.” Food Day 2012 is being put on nationally by the Center for Science in the Public Interest as

Stuffed Zucchini

One large zucchini, cut lengthwise in half. Spoon out interior, chop roughly and set aside. Remaining shell will be approx. ¼-inch thick. Cut up and sauté small onion or shallot. Cut up and sauté 3-4 small mushrooms. Cut up a medium-sized tomato and mix with the prior two items. Add 4-5 tablespoons of grated cheddar cheese to the above mixture, salt and pepper to taste— some tarragon is optional. Fill the empty shell with the mixture and sprinkle breadcrumbs and parsley over the top. Bake 30-40 minutes at 325350 degrees. Very pretty and you can eat the whole thing. And, you can add browned ground beef to mixture—it makes a nice meal with a salad. tws

Tranquility Café and Tea Bar (Wine and craft beers also available) 580 Washington Ave. (north corner of 6th) in Ketchum 208-726-0095 Mon-Sat. 8AM-9PM; Sun. 11AM-5PM BY MARGOT VAN HORN


am Colesworthy, proprietor of Tranquility Café and Tea Bar, has worn many hats in her life: that of a Realtor, owner of a property management company and also owner of a video store. This all evolved to finally achieving in December of 2011 her dream of owning a teahouse featuring 30 tea varieties. Well, that too has evolved into not only serving a delectable array of The Tao of Tea Company’s best, but also finding Vinny Carpenter, grand pastry chef trained at the Johnson and Wales Culinary School. Vinny now creates all sorts of fabulous dishes to devour as well as pairings for wines and high-tea accruements. Best of all, everything Vinny cooks is GLUTEN-FREE. I really like that because I feel better when I don’t ingest gluten. The only thing at this cozy café that does have gluten in it is the Bigwood Bread that they serve—which, of course, is delicious but is not made in Tranquility’s kitchen, so there’s no cross-contamination of flour to spoil the gluten-free atmosphere. I was treated to Vinny’s smooth and extra creamy Caprese Quiche ($6.95) with a side of Spring Mix Salad doused with just the right amount of Zen Matcha tea dressing. Vinny is starting to introduce different teas in his creations. Additionally, I had an excellent glutenfree cranberry orange scone and, of course, an aromatic tea. Tranquility has lovely outdoor seating, so now’s the time to enjoy that. In particular, Wine Down, wine-tasting evenings on Fridays, will make the beginning of your weekend just perfect. Pam features a different winery every Friday night and for $15 you can enjoy four wines along with three paired appetizers. Then, if you wish, you can order an extra whole glass of asterisked wine for $5. In fact, you can order a glass of $5 wine any evening starting at 5 p.m. You’ll have a choice of five wines from which to choose, so five is the number to remember. Pam’s lovely Café and Tea Bar is extremely reasonably priced, ranging from $4 (hummus plate with crudite) to $14.95 (Tranquility Cobb salad). And actually, you can order other food plates for even less. So for a nice glass of wine, cup of tea and something yummy to eat, good company and fun, don’t miss the Tranquility Café and Tea Bar. As always, make sure to tell Pam and Vinny that Margot and The Weekly Sun sent you. This once-monthly column features our wonderful Valley restaurants to which we can easily stroll—sometimes with the help of a bus or car ride—and is therefore called The Walking Gourmet. I hope that it will be a helpful guide for would-be diners, as well for all of our fine local eateries. tws

Trailing of the Sheep

A National Geographic Weekend STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


t was a “National Geographic” weekend, said Carol Waller. Indeed, the 16th annual Trailing of the Sheep Festival had all the color, culture and pageantry of that venerable magazine as Peruvians dressed in red danced in the streets, the curious sampled lamb curry served from Cristina’s giant serving plate and 1,500 mutton went strutting down Ketchum’s Main Street. An elbow-to-elbow crowd flocked to Hailey’s Roberta McKercher Park Saturday afternoon, taking advantage of warm sunny temperatures to buy Bronco blue and orange sheep Christmas or-

naments, ooh and ahh over Twin Falls farmer Kim Cohen’s newly shorn alpaca, watch Gooding spinner Anne McClain demonstrate how to use a spindle, and listen to Lonna Alexander-Steele explain how Native Americans layer alpaca wool into the soil around their corn because it holds water and fertilizes the soil with nitrogen. The four-day event designed to celebrate the heritage of sheepherding in the Wood River Valley also featured plenty of stories of the land. Rupert sheep rancher Henry Etcheverry, who summers his sheep near Lava Hot Springs and Soda Springs, related how Basques made good sheepherd-

ers because of their fear factor. They were so worried they would lose a lamb that they would climb up with the sheep and spend the night with them personally, rather than let them roam loose. Northwestern Nevada rancher Carolyn Dufurrena told a full house at the nexStage Theatre Friday night how fire had destroyed 85 percent of her family’s ranch this summer, leaving it a moonscape. But the regeneration has started, she added, with patches of grass and 2-inch aspen starts emerging through the soil. Rae Lewis of Kanarraville, Utah, described watching the mushroom cloud from atomic

testing in Nevada drift over her family’s sheep camp when she was young. We didn’t know a thing about nuclear fallout and radiation, she related. We lost half our herd and the neighbors lost 1,400 sheep. But when the neighbors sued the government they were told that there was no proof their sheep had died due to the fallout. Becky Kearns, president of Zions Resort Banking, said the bank chose to be the festival’s title sponsor after talking to retailers, restaurateurs and hotel managers. “The Kentwood where I’m staying is full,” she said. “This festival has a great economic

impact to the community.” The weekend culminated with 1,500 sheep from John Peavey’s Flat Top Sheep Ranch near Carey parading down Ketchum’s Main Street as they made their way from Corral Creek north of Ketchum toward winter pastures down south. The sheep apparently failed to hear their alarm clock earlier that morning, delaying the parade by a half-hour. It didn’t seem to faze onlookers, who sat on the curbs enjoying the warm fall sunshine. “You could be in New York watching the Macy’s parade,” said Chris Millspaugh. “But, hey, this is living history.” tws

Clockwise from above Peruvian dancers and musicians brightened the asphalt streets of Ketchum Sunday with their traditional garb. Alberto Uranga, who came to this country as a Basque sheepherder, is interviewed outside the Ketchum-Sun Valley Heritage and Ski Museum Friday afternoon. It was an elbow-to-elbow traffic jam on Main Street during Sunday’s Trailing of the Sheep Parade. Sheep raiser Millicent Kellogg of San Francisco began collecting sheep trinkets. Alpacas, like this little guy owned by Kim Cohen of Twin Falls, provide the warmest fibers, said Lonna AlexanderSteele. Hailey artist Kim Howard won the People’s Choice Award for the plein air paintings she did during Saturday’s Sheep Folklife Festival.

Custom Signs & Graphics CUSTOM SIGNS 27


KAREN JACOBSEN, UNDERWATER ILLUSTRATOR, from page 1 meters tall that feed on bacteria in a place where there is no sunlight and, therefore, no photosynthesis. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found marine worms that feed on whale skeletons. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found newly discovered animal species like the yeti crab, along with eyeless shrimp and Kiwa hirsute. Their finds could shed light on the origins of life on Earth and the rest of the universe, said Jacobsen. And they could also help humans adapt to living in outer space should they need to vacate this planet one day to survive as a species. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbelievable how many new species they find,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting because if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life in places we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think possible, where else could life exist?â&#x20AC;? Jacobsen, who creates her work while looking out onto the blue-colored palette of the ocean, can convey subtleties not evident in photographs while leaving out distracting details, said David Nateman, former director of the North Carolina Maritime Museum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Karen is able to highlight features not seen in photographs,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody takes photographs. But illustrations have always been used to catalog zoological uniqueness,â&#x20AC;? added Jacobsen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I can arrange things differently than you might get if you took a photograph, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more helpful to those looking at the picture.â&#x20AC;? Jacobsen says she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a living strictly on the scientific illustrations, especially considering

sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joined a few expeditions for no more than the airfare to get to the ship. But she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trade the experience for all the money in the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of these days Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be famous but I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be rich,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty much the only artist who has seen as much as I have. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m definitely the only one whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on multiple expeditions.â&#x20AC;?

Scientific illustrating: WHAT TO KNOW Scientific illustrating can help kids visualize science, Karen Jacobsen says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of kids are visually oriented. And illustrating things, rather than simply taking a photograph of something, forces them to slow down and really look at things,â&#x20AC;? she said. Illustrating helps the drawer recognize similarities and differences in shapes and other factors. It teaches spatial relationships. And it helps the drawer remember details, she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when you take the time to draw something, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever forget it,â&#x20AC;? Jacobsen said. I still remember things I drew in my invertebrate class in college 30 years ago.â&#x20AC;? To get started: Isolate the subject matter. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to draw everything but rather pick out whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to make mistakesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;few people draw things exactly right the first time. tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, With the price of gas so high, I decided to search the classifieds and look for an economy car to drive back and forth to work instead of my SUV. I was hoping to find one of those new hybrid cars, but I guess they are in high demand. However I did find a guy who was selling a diesel car that ran on leftover oil from the deep fat fryers at local restaurants. At first I thought it was a joke, but when I called I realized he was serious. I was stunned and didn't know what to say. How do these cars work and why don't more people have them? Help me out here guys. I'm feeling real naive right now.

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: You're not alone. Many

people have never heard of running a car on vegetable oil. However, much like some people, your car can also become vegetarian. Carry: These vegetable oil systems have been around for years, but have gained popularity as gas prices soar higher. Basically, a conversion kit is used to change the fuel system of a diesel engine to let it run on vegetable oil as

Fast Facts Going The Distance

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 10/14/12 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

well as diesel fuel. Cash: The conversion kit can cost between $500 and $800 and can be added to almost any diesel engine vehicle including passenger cars and trucks. This system adds a second fuel tank to the vehicle that is used to store vegetable oil. You start the car as usual, but once the engine is warmed up, you can flip a switch on the dashboard that allows the vegetable oil to be delivered in place of the diesel fuel. Carry: As you may imagine, the system can have a cost savings on gasoline, but does require the need to find alternative fuel sources. It's not like there are many fuel

stations serving vegetable oil. Cash: Most people make a deal with local restaurants to collect the vegetable oil used in deep fat fryers. Since the restaurant typically pays to dispose of the old oil, they are more than willing to give it away. Carry: Aside from cleaning a fuel filter, there is very little additional maintenance on the car. Although since you are burning vegetable oil, you may notice the smell of fried food. Cash: But since you're producing lower emissions and saving on gasoline prices, you may not mind driving a car that smells like french fries.

With today's gas prices, many people are focusing on a car's fuel economy. The vegetable oil system receives about the same mileage/gallon as standard diesel fuel, and diesel engines are typically 40% more efficient than their gasoline counterparts. In addition, vegetable oil is known to reduce vehicle emissions and act as a better lubricant than diesel oil. With a two-tank fuel system, converted cars can travel extended distances before needing to refuel.

High Class Ride

While many people may think converting a vehicle to run on vegetable oil is reserved for older model cars, nothing could be further from the truth. Today the conversion kits can be used on all types of diesel engine cars including Mercedes Benz, Chevy, Ford, Volkswagen and more. In fact, there are some businesses that have converted their entire fleet of delivery trucks to use a vegetable oil system to save thousands of dollars every year in fuel. â&#x20AC;˘


Reader Humor Moo-Shoo

My neighbor is very unique. On any given Saturday, you can find him in his garage tinkering or inventing something for around the house. His recent project was converting an old diesel pickup truck to run on vegetable oil. I stopped by one day to see how he was doing on the project. Proud of his new vehicle, he hopped in the front seat and started it up so I could see it in action. A few minutes later I noticed the smell of Chinese food. "I get the vegetable oil from the Chinese restaurant in town" he told me. "Are there any side effects?" I asked. He laughed and replied, "Occasionally, when it backfires it spits out egg rolls." (Thanks to Oliver G.)
