he leis may be off—unless you help. Wood River High School cheerleaders have fallen short in their fundraising efforts to go to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii where they’ve been invited to perform in January. And they’re willing to do just about anything—anything legal, that is—to get there. As a result, they’re conducting a last-minute campaign push now through Nov. 10. They’ll donate an hour of their time to the charity of your choice for every $10 donated. Cheerleading Coach Amanda Ornelas said it costs $1,150 per person plus airfare to go and so far the 11-member squad has raised about $4,500 after a number of fundraising events, including one in which they donated a portion of the money they raised to cancer research. “So, as you can see, we are very short on cash,” said Ornelas. The cheerleaders qualified to join other cheerleading squads during halftime at the football tame by achieving perfect scores on three different evaluations during cheerleading camp this summer. Two other Idaho squads from Boise and Capital high Schools also qualified. “The kids feel like to go would be a huge asset as far as building the program at the high school. And it’s a chance of a lifetime for them,” said Ornelas. Cheerleaders are Rosie Paredes, Shannice Hall, Paty Orozco, Adriana Gomez, Karina Rangel, Alejandro Hurtado, Maricruz Baltazar, Crystal Rodriguez, and Melissa Molina. To help, call Ornelas at 309-2929 or email her at email@example.com Or send a check to Wood River Cheerleaders care of Wood River High School, 1250 Fox Acres Drive, Hailey, Id 83333. Be sure to note twp the charity of your choice.

Surviving Reality WRHS drama students focus on reality TV By KAREN BOSSICK
eality TV takes the stage this week when the Wood River High School Drama Department presents “Surviving Reality.” The performance—at 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday— revolves around a TV station owner who decides he can make millions of dollars by jumping on the reality TV bandwagon. He challenges a haughty Park Avenue, N.Y., family to spend a month with a bunch of hillbillies in a Hog Holler, Ky., cabin. But he intends to make the challenges so impossible that they can’t win the million-dollar prize that he doesn’t have. “It’s a reality show I’d love to see on TV because it’s hilarious,” said Jessica Lamprecht. Lamprecht plays a crochety 94-year-old former star who has been wellpreserved by hourly Botox injections. TV station owner Harold Fastbuck has hired her as emcee, hoping to get star power at a bargain basement price. “It’s very fun—I get to scream and be mean to people,” Lamprecht said. “And I think the audience will like it because it’s full of funny moments.” Drama Director Karl Nordstrom, who directed his students in “Pride and Prejudice” last year, said this time he wanted
something that was designed especially for high school students and lighthearted without being corny. The play, written by Daniel O’Donnell, will feature a lot of the school’s veteran actors, as well as some newcomers. It will also give students the chance to portray vastly different characters—from hillbillies to the stereotypical rich. “It’s not hard to get into my character of a mountain woman because I hunt and fish in real life,” said Devan Atkinson. “The play—it’s like what’s on TV because it’s awkward and stupid.” That said, the play does have its redeeming qualities, said Lamprecht: “In the end, the family that’s lost its way with one another find their way to becoming close family again. So, it’s really pretty neat.” twp

as a child I would talk to my dad as Vincent”. Since the age of seven, she has teched her father’s complicated show and, as a result, has been fortunate enough to travel the world. At the age of 14, that brought her to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, perhaps the most celebrated theater festival in the world. There her dad was nominated for the best solo performance against stiff competition. The last three years she has had the amazing opportunity to be an “angel” at the festival, traveling on her own and pretty much being an exalted go-fer. “I’ve met the most eclectic people and it has been the greatest experience of my life.” At The Community School, she has been in fourteen productions and directs the middle school’s evenings of one-act plays. On Nov. 4 she will play one of the leads in the school’s fall production of A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum. “I love performing. There is just something so exciting about being live in front of an audience.” It seems likely that we’ll be seeing her on stage a lot in the future. twp

Learning and using Healing Touch

Bossick But instead of reaching for an antihistamine, the Sun Valley woman closed her eyes as Claudia Lopez waved her hands over Blue’s head and around her face. Within a few minutes, Blue felt warmth as her sinuses cleared up. St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center has a new substitute for aspirin—58 volunteers who dispense Healing Touch. Healing Touch is an energybased approach to health and healing in which practitioners wave their hands above the patient or lay them on the patient to increase the energy flow to alleviate pain and promote selfhealing. The hospital introduced it last year as part of new Integrative Therapies Program designed to complement traditional medicine. On Friday and Saturday the hospital will hold a Level 1 training class for those wishing to learn Healing touch. (It plans to hold Level 2, 3 and 4 workshops next year). And it is starting a new research project in its surgical department to determine to what extent Healing Touch is benefitting its patients. Reports from hospitals around the world purport faster mobility among those receiving knee transplants, speedier recovery from open-heart surgeries and shorter hospital stays among those submitting to Healing Touch. “Our patients have reported significant benefits,” said Mary Kay Foley, who oversees the hospital’s Integrative Therapies program, which includes acupuncture, meditation and the Care Channel--a closed-circuit TV station which offers guided imagery images and instrumental music for its patients. “Patients have noted a 50 percent decrease in pain and 70 percent decrease in anxiety after treatments. It was encouraging enough that we wanted to do a more formal study. Even just a breath of relaxation helps healing overall.” Those who have learned Healing Touch have had a variety of

reasons for doing so. Mary McGonigal wanted to apply hers at Blaine Manor nursing home and Linda Peterson at the Animal Shelter. Karen Oswalt wanted to use it on students at the Sage School in Hailey, and Bobbie Dahl was interested in seeing whether it might be useful at the Sagebrush Arena therapeutic equine program. “My wife had it done to her in June as she was recovering from cancer, and it proved very beneficial,” said Jerry Cramer, a Wood River Valley auto mechanic. Healing Touch was formulated by Janet Mentgen, a Denver nurse, in the 1980s. Today there are more than 2,000 certified practitioners and 50,000 people trained to do it. “A lot of people think we’re way off in left field. I came home and wanted to practice it on my husband and children and they wouldn’t have anything to do with it. But it works,” said Margery Friedlander. “Sometimes we create energy blocks by tensing up when we’re in pain or scared. Healing touch unblocks the flow of energy and distributes it so healing can take place.” Lisa Thompson, a nurse at a
St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center will offer a Healing Touch Level 1 training class from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday at St. Luke’s Hailey Clinic.

dren’s hospital in San Diego, started practicing Healing touch 17 years ago and now teaches it to others. “I was a skeptic at first—I thought no way would it ever get into a hospital. But I started using it with nurses who had headaches. Then I tried it on a teen-ager who had had jaw surgery and was in a lot of pain when we couldn’t reach the doctor. Now I’m even getting referrals from doctors,” she said. Healing Touch does not require a religious orientation, and St. Luke’s steers away from citing any religious connection. Some medical practitioners suggest Healing Touch has a placebo effect, which, in fact, has been proven to have real and beneficial effects. Some doctors say treatments that claim to heal by manipulating invisible energy fields are a form of selfhypnosis. “The bottom line is: Healing touch certainly isn’t anything that’s going to hurt you,” said Ketchum resident Marilyn Schwartz. “So you might as well give it a try.” twp

Taste of Idaho’s Bounty, Thursday Town Hall Meeting By KAREN BOSSICK
Smith talks benefits of eating local foods
he Blaine County School Board will hold a Town Hall Meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8, in room 301-302 of the Community Campus on Fox Acres Road. The board is looking for feedback for ways it can better communicate with parents, community members and staff. The school district recently hired the National School Public Relations Association to conduct
By KAREN BOSSICK
lisa Smith could have starved even as her adventure in eating was just beginning. How can you survive eating just what’s grown within a 100-mile radius when it’s the first day of spring and nothing is growing locally? But she and James McKinnon, her sidekick, persisted, turning their odyssey into a book, “The 100-Mile Diet” (retitled “Plenty: One Man, One Woman and a Robust Year of Eating Locally”). Smith recently shared her experiences at the Trailing of the Sheep Festival. Smith said the adventure started as she pondered why her local store was selling apples from New Zealand when there were plenty of apples grown near her home in Vancouver, B.C. There were surprises: She and McKinnon had to give up bread and pasta for six months until they found someone who grew wheat in the Pacific Northwest. Less than a hundred years ago, there were several varieties of wheat grown in the Northwest, Smith said. But then someone decided that it should be grown in the Midwest, instead. And finding local seafood was much harder than they’d expected. Local prawns, for instance, were shipped to Asia, rather than Vancouver grocery stores.
For a while, Smith and McKinnon had to make their own salt and grow their own beans if they wanted to eat such things. Now there are people making salt, 100-mile bread and other foodstuffs they couldn’t get when they began their experiment. Growing locally is not just a matter of carbon footprints, Smith said. It’s also a matter of human preservation. For instance, there are Africans who are malnourished because they can’t afford to eat the fish they grow locally because Europeans put such a high premium on it. Smith lost 25 pounds during her year on the 100-mile diet. “We used a lot of honey and we always put cream on our dessert. So, our diet was not necessarily low-calorie,” she said. Five years after the grand experiment, 90 percent of Smith’s diet is still comprised of local foodstuffs. “It’s the taste,” she said. “You can’t go back to the other stuff after you’ve tasted locally-grown foods. We found we enjoyed some of the foods we were forced to try. And we developed relationships with the growers and the twp fishermen.”

Essentially about teen angst – the film plays even better to adults who can readily identify as well with this story of self-discovery and redemption.

The spookier side of the Scorpio sun comes out this week, starting with Sunday’s Halloween celebrations. The moon shifts from theatrical Leo to practical Virgo, and the festivities will be marked by a delightful combination of fun and temperance. The following day is the Day of the Dead and All Saints’ Day. The next holiday for the spirit world comes on Friday during the new moon in Scorpio, also known as Hecate’s Moon. ARIES (March 21-April 19). It’s good to know whom you can depend on and who you’ll let depend on you. One friend in particular comes to mind. You know this person inside and out and can predict him or her well. There is comfort in familiarity. This week, you will be either a borrower or a lender to this person, and either way, all will be well. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll make a breakthrough in a relationship this week. This will be a subtle but unmistakable step to the next level. One caution: Talking about it with the other person will spoil the magic. Just affirm the current state silently to yourself. A new rhythm will be established over the next three weeks.

Wood River High School Cheerleaders need you! We were invited to perform at the Pro-Bowl in Hawaii next January, but we haven’t met our goal. We need $$ by Nov. 10!
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Loved ones will tend to agree with you on most matters this week, making this an excellent time to forward your agenda. If you don’t think you have an agenda, consider this: There are things you want, and you need the help and support of your loved ones to make these things happen. There’s nothing wrong with that. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Relationships work best when you take turns leading and following. You take control when the matter at hand is one of your specialties. If the issue is important to a loved one, you back off and let him or her take over. It gives you no pleasure to cross anyone on purpose. It’s a winning style, and loved ones appreciate you.
For every $10 donated, we’ll donate an hour of our time to the charity of the donor’s choice!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The more prepared you are the more confident you’ll be. Others will notice your confidence and will be drawn in by it. Conversations will start, relationships will be kindled, and opportunities will come your way. It all happens because you take the time to prepare for the events of your life. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life is like an amusement park that has too many rides to cover in a 12-hour period. There will be time to explore your options, just not every option all in one day. Your best bet is to learn to narrow your focus to one activity and be happy with your choice for as long as it takes to complete the action. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s hard for some people to be vulnerable enough to speak from the heart, but it’s easy for you. This week is lucky for you when you take advantage of the skill often. Tell your loved ones how much you care for them. It’s something everyone needs to hear once in a while, and you’ll be much appreciated. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There’s more noise and excitement around than you care to participate in this week. You’re very attractive, and everyone seems to need your attention. The more you try to do things alone the more they call. Take measures to protect your sleep from interruption. Playing nature sounds while you sleep could help. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If someone close to you has a jealous impulse regarding you, you might find it flattering. But when it’s you who is
feeling jealous, the whole dynamic is uncomfortable. Luckily, you are able to attain a level of detachment this week so that you can get ahold of your emotions and make them work for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are many intellectually gifted people around you, and their intelligence comes in various forms. You love it when a person shows social savvy, is a whiz in the kitchen or has a way with children. Because you appreciate different ways in which people exhibit I.Q., you may be the smartest of them all. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There’s an internal argument going on regarding your work, your personal life and finding a comfortable balance between the two. You may even consider combining two parts of your life in an interesting new configuration. You’re exceedingly creative and will come up with brilliant solutions. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You have deep compassion for your fellow man and will be compelled to commit good deeds accordingly all year long. Though you do none of it for your own personal gain, the laws of karma will favor you. November brings a mix of adventuresome experiences that will be both eye-opening and spiritually fulfilling. Your personal life gets a lift from new energy in December, likely in the form of an optimistic and sweet friend. Travel in December and June. Educational horizons expand in Autwp gust.

Moellenburg qualifies The Sun Valley Figure Skating Club’s Shayna Moellenberg has qualified for the Pacific Coast Sectional Championships Nov. 9 through 13 in Culver City, Calif. Competing against eight of the best Junior Ladies skaters in the six state region, Moellenburg won gold at the Northwest Pacific Regional Figure Skating Championships in Boise in October and became the 2011 Northwest Pacific Junior Ladies Free Skate Champion. At Regionals, the 16-year old Community School tenth grader placed first in both the Short and Long Programs by a significant point margin. Her final combined free skate score was 105.08, more than 12 points higher than the second place finish. Moellenberg qualified for Sectionals as the Novice Ladies Silver Medalist last year at the Regional Championships in Medford, Ore.

Completing the Boardwalk By KAREN BOSSICK
ou can own a piece of Boardwalk without having to worry about latching onto Park Place. The Wood River Land Trust is pushing to finish the Croy Creek Boardwalk that juts out into the wetlands in the Draper Wood River Preserve at Lions Park in Hailey. It’s trying to raise the $60,000 by selling off the boardwalk in increments, after collecting nearly $7,000 during a Boardwalk Aglow fundraising event held Thursday evening. Twentyfive bucks will buy you an inch; $300, a foot, and $1,000 a whole yard. The tough part—the cement piers pilings that hold up the walk made from recycled compressed plastic—were put in this summer amidst a swarm of mosquitoes, said Melanie Dahl, a WRLT spokesperson. Volunteers hauled away 1,200 tons of concrete, broken glass bottles and even an old water heater and stove on what used to be a former dump. And other volunteers planted 150 black cottonwood, red osier dogwood, chokecherry bushes and a custom seed blend of native grasses designed for riparian areas there. Despite their precarious beginnings on a bed of river rock and broken glass, the small trees and shrubs have thrived. The 550-foot boardwalk loop
will take walkers from the south end of Lions Park through a tangle of tall grasses and shrubs into a wetlands area. A wildlife viewing platform that will jut out over the Wood River will allow viewers a prime spot to see bald eagles, ducks and other water fowl, moose, red wing blackbirds, kestrels and wood peckers. The trail will then head back overland returning to Lions Park. “I came here as part of a bird class and I remember all the birds we saw,” said Marne Elmore, an Oregon State University student. “I feel lucky to have such a great area to conduct my study so close to home.” The Draper Wood River Preserve, as it’s called, encompasses 84 acres on both sides of Croy Road. Much of it uplands habitat on the steep hills that tower over the wetlands. The Wood River Land Trust hopes to use the area for educational purposes. Jeanne Cassell, who is working to build the Croy Canyon Ranch facility for senior living, says she would love to see the boardwalk extend to the other side of the wetlands so that residents of the Ranch will be able to use it. Tax deductible donations may be made at The Wood River Land Trust, 119 E. Bullion St., Hailey ID 83333 or by visiting woodriverlandtrust.org and clicking on twp “donate.”
Community and chamber members are invited to an Open House and Grand Opening of the newly remodeled Spirit n’ Motion Athletic School from 5 to 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 5.

Trout Unlimited November meeting
Stop by between 5 and 7 p.m. at The Roosevelt Restaurant in Ketchum this Thursday, Nov. 4 to see Herb Myer from Trout Unlimited’s Boise Chapter. Myer will offer a two-part slide show, first of fly-fishing for bonefish in French Polynesia at Tetiaroa, Marlon Brando’s private atoll, and Anaa, a remote atoll in the Tuamotu Island chain. Tahiti offers an epic adventure into the remote Tuamotu Archipelago of French Polynesia in search of monster bonefish. Polynesia’s Tuamotu Archipelago is a true tropical paradise characterized by uninhabited islands, white sand flats, and large unsophisticated bonefish that have rarely, if ever, seen a fly. These heavy-shouldered fish range from 4 to 12 pounds and chase flies with reckless abandon. For more information, call 6224613.
hot ticket, wild and scenic film festival ............................................................from pg 1 Festival format with eight films ranging in length from two minutes to 77 minutes being shown in one evening. Some are just plain beautiful, such as the three-minute “LadyBug Swarm,” which examines the beauty of nature through the eyes of a child. Some are funny, such as the four-minute “Get Up, Stand Up,” which makes surfing in landlocked Wyoming look easy. And some are serious examinations of conflicts over the land. “Flathead Wild,” for instance, documents the scenic beauty and wildlife that could be lost in Montana to mountain top removal and methane drilling. The film “The Fun Theory: Piano Stairs” asks whether more people would take the stairs than the escalator if it were fun to take the stairs. Another, “The Fun Theory: Bottle Bank Arcade,” examines whether more people would recycle glass if it became fun to do. “Generations: A Perspective on Climate Change” humanizes the debate on climate change by exploring the delicate balance of winter and the intrinsic value of snow to people across cultures. Still another follows Seth and Baby, a veggie-oil fueled van, as they examine the physical, social and environmental aspects of food. The latter film, “Elements of Food,” features Ketchum Ayurvedic practitioner Tona Leiseth as it looks at the local food system in Idaho. The film festival, founded by

The ERC is hosting the film festival, along with The Elephant’s Perch. There will be raffle prizes, including a snowboard from the Board Bin, Lisa Horton jewelry, a Nordic ski pass, Smith sunglasses and an Osprey pack. (Raffle tickets are $5 each or five for $20).

re you ready to be inspired? What can we do in our Valley to make change for a better, brighter, greener future? In the spirit of environmental activism, the films featured in the 8th annual Wild and Scenic Environmental Film Festival will be sure to make you laugh, think, and cry. The feature film Split Estate just won an Emmy for best research in a documentary. This film really touches on the consequences of natural gas and oil drilling. A Split Estate situation is one where the landowners do not own the mineral rights to the land underneath. This can cause environmental pollution and serious health problems. Flathead Wild follows the Flathead Rapid Assessment Visual Expedition
(RAVE) and explores just what it takes to be a conservation photographer. The photographers have 13 days to save this pristine wilderness. Will they do it? Wood River High School’s Environmental Club will be featuring a video that they made, an art installation, and ideas that they have for solving problems we face in our Valley. The Environmental Club was passionate about being involved in this event and wanted to do something to show the community that they care about the environment. Hopefully, you and your family can attend this event and help support the Environmental Resource Center. Join early as Ketchum Green Drinks is hosting the pre-party beginning at 5 p.m. Beer, wine, raffle. Be Fresh! Go Local! Act Wild!

Catholic Church mourns loss of Hewlett By KAREN BOSSICK
inety-one year old Rosemary Hewlett, a longtime second-homeowner in the Sun Valley area, died Friday at her home in Atherton, Calif., after a brief illness. Hewlett and her husband Bill—of Hewlett Packard Co. fame—donated the statue of Mary to Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church in Sun Valley many years ago. The 23-foot tall, 250-pound statue was believed to have been carved in Italy more than 200 years ago. The Hewletts found it in Ireland and had it shipped across the Atlantic. The statue was often nicknamed “Our Lady of the Cold Toes” until it was given some shelter from the cold and snow with the building of the new church in 2007. Hewlett met her first husband Robert Bradford of Boston, Mass., on a ski trip to Sun Valley. They spent many holidays in Sun Valley until Bradford died of cancer in 1969. Hewlett married William Hewlett eight years later and they divided their time between Portola Valley, the Cedars and Sun Valley. Hewlett will be buried at the Ketchum Cemetery. twp

also in the recreational skier. Many knee injuries actually occur before the body hits the snow. While several common threads appear in this research, the most common denominator is fighting loss of control. In the recreational skier, this is usually in a backwards direction with the hips below the knees. Learning when and how to fall does prevent injuries. Carl Ettlinger, of the Vermont Ski Safety Group, has pioneered much of this work, which can be found in more detail on the Internet. Now is the time to get your knees tuned up, before the snow falls and twp youâ€™re ready to hit the slopes.

s winter fast approaches, skiers are counting the days until Baldy opens. Unfortunately, many ski seasons are cut short by injuries to the knees. Years ago, a broken tibia was the most frequent serious injury to the skierâ€™s leg. However, as skiing technique and equipment have modernized, knee ligament injuries have become the injury. There are a number of things skiers can do to decrease the odds of a â€œblown outâ€? knee ruining their season. First, preseason conditioning will not only alleviate early season muscle aches and quad burn and shorten recovery, but it will decrease loss of control, crashes and injuries. A comprehensive program that includes strength, agility, balance, flexibility and aerobic conditioning ideally should be year-round, but six weeks of preseason work is a minimum. Strengthening the core, hip and knee is the most important. Second, as the average Baldy skier ages, old injuries and â€œwear and tearâ€? are common. Although they may be minimally symptomatic during the off-season, they can easily reappear when fueled by early-season enthusiasm. Dealing with these prior to the snow season can make for safer, more enjoyable, skiing. If this applies to you, check in now with a physical therapist or orthopedist, and make sure rehab is complete and your â€œdamaged partsâ€? have reached their maximum potential. Third, get your equipment modernized and checked before the season beginsâ€”especially your bindingsâ€”to help minimize the risk. There has been a lot of good research about the cause of knee injuries, not only in the World Cup-level athlete, but

o you have plans for retirement? Do they include a retirement plan? If you are a small business owner, you may feel you need to continue working during your golden years. Many business owners may not realize there are plans available to build retirement accounts. One such plan is the Individual(k) for business owners who have no employees other than a spouse. While the plan itself may not to be very well known, it can be an appropriate way to provide income during retirement. An Individual(k) is similar to the more popular 401(k), with contributions limits well above those of Individual Retirement Accounts. Contributions for the 2010 tax year are limited to $16,500 as long as they donâ€™t exceed 100 percent of your compensation. There is even a $5,500 catch-up provision for persons age 50 and older. The deadline for establishing an Individual(k) is the last day of our companyâ€™s tax year. If your company follows the calendar year, the deadline would be December 31 of the current year. If not, the deadline would be the last day of your current fiscal year. Make an appointment with a qualified financial professional to discuss whether an Individual(k) is appropriate for your business. Your retirement plans should include retiring. twp

Ask the Guys Dear Classified Guys, My husband has been trying to start an Internet business from home for the past several years, but it's been slightly less than successful. I finally told him to dust off his resume and get a real job. He followed my advice and landed an interview at a company nearby. The problem is, he thinks he can go to the formal interview dressed casually, which is only a slight improvement over his self-made boxers and t-shirt dress code. Even though the company has a business casual dress code, I told him he should wear a suit and tie to the interview. Who do you think is right, my husband or me?
Cash: Wow, that's a loaded
question. You're asking us to step in-between a husband and wife disagreement. Carry: Fortunately after being married for over fifteen years, I learned exactly how to handle this…always side with the woman! And if your husband is smart, he'll do the same thing. Cash: He actually should be dressing up for the interview. Regardless of the company's dress policy, it's always a smart idea to
Fast Facts Casually Confused
Duane “Cash” Holze & Todd “Carry” Holze 10/31/10 ©2010 The Classified Guys®
give your best first impression. Carry: It appears your husband has grown accustomed to the selfemployed, dot-com world where bunny slippers and a bathrobe are considered business attire. However, the job market today calls for him to dress up a bit more for the interview. Cash: So unless the company told him to come "casual", then a suit is standard dress for the occasion. Carry: Like you suggested with his resume, have him "dust off" his best suit. And if boxers and t-shirts have been his daily attire for awhile, he may need your assistance in picking out a good power tie as well.
Cash: Now, another problem here may be that your husband doesn't really want a job. It sounds like he needed some strong encouragement to get back out in the job force. You may want to consider discussing this new opportunity with him a little further. Carry: I know how difficult the change can be for your husband. When I worked from home, boxers were my normal business attire as well. My wife didn't like it and even Cash occassionally complained when I called him at home in the mornings. Cash: I sure did, because you always called me from your web cam!
We've probably all heard the term "business casual", but dress codes have become increasingly complex. And it's enough to confuse the savviest of dressers. Besides "business casual", there is "casual wear" which is the trend away from pinstripe suits or high heels. Then there is "business appropriate" or "business ready". The latter meaning you must have a suit available at all times. Don't forget "corporate casual", meaning dress pants and sport jacket or "resort casual", a typical no-no for the business office. It's all enough to make you just stay in your pajamas.
Dressing For Success
Since the early 1990's, the trend among businesses has been to implement a more casual work attire. In a survey by the Society for Human Recourses Management, 87% of respondents reported a casual wear policy of one day a week or more at their companies. Why? Many believe it helps attract younger employees, improves productivity and eases the tension between management and staff. •

I must confess that I have a passion for shoes. As any woman will tell you, they make your outfit look better and can make you feel great. So when I needed a part-time job to make some extra money, I applied for a job at a shoe store in our mall. The store manager gave me an interview right away. I thought if she understood my passion for shoes, I would get the job. Apparently my eagerness startled the woman. She explained that she had to fire her last employee for wearing a different pair of shoes everyday. "Why is that so bad?" I questioned. "Well," she replied, "The woman never bought them!"

briefs St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation receives Susan G. Komen grant The St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation is excited to announce it has been awarded a grant from the Boise Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure for its Improving Access to Screening and Diagnostic Mammography Services for Underserved Women project. The grant will help provide mammogram services to women in need. The project aligns with the Foundation’s efforts to improve access to mammography services and will provide scholarships for uninsured and underinsured women 25 years and older who are in need of screening and diagnostic mammograms and/or breast ultrasound. The grant will help identify cancer at earlier stages when
it is easier to treat, potentially increasing the survival rate of women. In August of 2009, community generosity built and equipped a stateof-the-art Women’s Imaging Center, which comprehensively addresses breast care and women’s health. Since the Women’s Imaging Center opened, 145 women in our community have received full scholarships for breast care services through a previous grant from the Boise Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. For more information on mammography scholarships contact (208) 381-2095. To schedule a mammography appointment at St. Luke’s Wood River contact (208) 727-8283.
Reducing stress for service animals Fran Jewell, executive director of Positive Partners Assistance Dogs, Inc., recently presented a Web seminar on mitigating stress in service dogs for the National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors. This was the first webinar of its kind for the association. Although the seminar was designed for trainers of service dogs who assist the handicapped, the techniques are useful for all dogs. Service dogs, however, tend to be under more stress because they work daily and often encounter unfamiliar situations, she said. Jewell is the only certified dog behavior consultant in Idaho by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. Positive Partners Assistance Dogs trains four types of service or assistance dogs: mobility dogs for people who need balance and assistance climbing stairs or bending over; hearing assistance dogs; guide dogs for the visually impaired; and wheelchair assistance dogs. Each service dog is custom-trained for the individual. Positive Partners is currently is working with the Women’s Auxiliary of the American Legion David Ketchum
