Boston Strong in the Wood River Valley BY CHRIS MILLSPAUGH


ast April, the finish line of the Boston Marathon was a scene of horror, blood and death due to a bomb being set off by terrorists. Last Saturday was an entirely different story as the Red Sox halted their parade there and outfielder Johnny Gomes jumped out of one of the floats and placed the World Series trophy draped with a team jersey with lettering on the back declaring “Boston Strong 617” at the exact spot. The crowd sang “God Bless America” and for a moment the citizens of Boston and the world could rejoice and remember the three dead and 217 wounded folks who suffered that day. It was a gesture that seemed to restore the spirit and hope to the city again. Like their darling team, they had gone from worst to first in their hearts. I mention this today because of the inordinate amount of Red Sox fans there are in the Wood River Valley. Ball caps with the letter “B” were seen all over the county last week as the Sox triumphed over the Cardinals four games to two, bringing the trophy back again to Boston for the third time in 10 years, where it rested on the finish line of the tragic marathon. The parties went on for days and nights in both areas of the world. Some of the most loyal fans of the Boston Red Sox dwell in this area. They work as bartenders, writers, photographers, politicians, carpenters, entertainers, clerks, lawyers and every other occupation you can name. They are Boston Strong in the middle of the mountains of South Central Idaho and talk baseball all year long. These same fans went through the tragedy of the wildfires here last summer with the same grit shown by their Boston area counterparts. Triumph wears many hats… or should I say caps? As we begin yet another winter here in the Valley, we will always remember the summer that will never be forgotten and the spirit that arose from the ashes. Keep the celebrations going. Nice talking to you. tws

Ann Christensen shows some of the tools she uses to conduct her shamanistic rituals. STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


nn Christensen unwraps her medicine bundle made of woven alpaca wool culled in the Andes and begins laying out her medicinal tools. There’s sage, with which she cleanses her space before a ceremony, calling in the winds from the four corners. There’s a white owl feather that she uses to stir up energy. There’s a rattle made of seed pods and a Tibetan bell. And there’s a crystal, which she uses to extract unhealthy energy from someone’s body. Christensen’s feet are firmly planted in Ketchum. But her spiritual consciousness is developing roots in the ancient practice of shamanism. At the age of 75, Christensen traveled to the Andes of Peru where she visited Inca temples, took part in ceremonies led by Laika medicine men and women, learned the teachings of the master shamans and about ancient traditions speaking to the directions of the medicine wheel. Now she counts herself among a small group of practitioners in the Wood River Valley who use shamanistic practices to help others heal from physical and emotional trauma. “I’m a nature nut and shamanism dotes heavily on our relation with nature,” said Christensen, a longtime conservationist who has spent countless hours teaching

Wood River Valley youth about animals, fish, butterflies and bugs. “Shamans believe everything has spirit in it, even rocks. And they teach you that you can listen to and learn from them.” Christensen, who was raised a Presbyterian in the Bible Belt of Kentucky, became interested in shamanism after hearing Alberto Villoldo speak at the 2008 Sun Valley Mountain Wellness Festival. Villoldo left a professorship at San Francisco State University where he was investigating how energy healing can change the chemistry of the brain to reduce pain to study with the Inca of Peru who claim to have used energy medicine for 5,000 years. He supplemented that by studying with shamans in Tibet, Mongolia, Africa and even Europe. “The things he was saying mystified and fascinated me, even though I found it difficult to believe a lot of the stuff,” Christensen recalled. “But he did some tricks to grab us. He weakened us, for instance, so we couldn’t hold our arms up, no matter how hard we tried. And I was intrigued.” Christensen began training as a shaman several months later in Salt Lake City and then took further courses at Joshua Tree in California, and in Peru. She visualized traveling along a creek and stepping into a mountain meadow in search of her helping spirit and came back with a salmon—a fitting power animal for Christensen who has long fought to save the salmon in Idaho. Back home, Christensen has used her energy work on a dog with cancer and with friends. She also joins two shamanic healing practitioners and other interested people for ceremonies around a bonfire every full moon and new moon. Heidi Reeves, one of those healing practitioners, also studied under the Q’ero— the master shamans of the Andes—learning ancient rites and rituals, including cleansing and balancing ceremonies, illu-

mination and soul retrieval. “I always wanted to help people,” said the former social worker. “But for me, social work felt like more of a Band-Aid.” The Hailey woman leads occasional meditation sessions, teaching her followers how to pull in energy from the luminous white energy field that she says surrounds us. And she helps people enhance their creative flow, clear problems in the energy field before those problems manifest themselves as a disease and heal emotional trauma from the past. She starts out her 90-minute to 2-hour sessions reviewing a person’s history. Then, as they lay on their back fully clothed, she has them do breathing exercises, releasing negative energy into a stone. She cleans their chakras — clockwise-spinning energy centers that she says can – Ann get unbalanced Christensen and sluggish. Occasionally, she extracts something that’s not good for her client using a crystal. She then directs a deep cleansing light toward them, reweaving their energy field by moving her hands through the air. Sometimes, Reeves says, she gets a vision or a word pointing to a certain area in the body that needs work. Reeves says she generally works with a client one to three times, sending them

Thanksgiving Baskets, a Valley Affair be so fortunate. If you would like to make an impact right here in our community, you could send a cash donation to The Hunger Coalition to help them make a cornucopia of Thanksgiving Baskets for people in our Valley. These baskets ensure more families will have wholesome food on their tables and hope in their hearts during this holiday season and beyond. Full of wonderful holiday foods, these baskets will offer hope to so many deserving people. There are numerous people in our community working behind the scenes to fill these baskets. There are team leaders who volunteer their time to help with all sorts of details, including picking up food from local stores before hand, unpacking turkeys, stacking everything up for the Basket giveaway day and so much more. I talked to Ned Wheeler of Hailey, one of last year’s volunteers about his work on the project and how it felt. He told me, “It feels fulfilling and rewarding to help out and provide something for others who are less fortunate. At the end of the day it feels good that you took part in something that made other people’s Thanksgiving rich.”



y memories of Thanksgiving are always punctuated with the crisp fall air and the love and laughter of family and friends who gathered together to celebrate that special day. What makes that day so extraordinary? It is not only the time of year or the people that gather around the table for dinner—it’s the food that is served for dinner that brings us nourishment and, best of all— comfort, during this pivotal time of year with the long, cold winter months ahead. People right here in the Wood River Valley are experiencing economic hardship that may prevent them from filling up their dinner table for this special holiday and days beyond it. Residual effects from the fires this summer and the seasonal slack that happens in our resort area are being felt by many of our neighbors — maybe even more than we care to admit. If you’re feeling really blessed this holiday season, that’s wonderful news. Perhaps you would consider further extending the gratitude that is to be felt during this season to those who may not

This year, The Sage School is partnering with Wood River High School, Pioneer Montessori, Community School, The Mountain School and the YMCA to bake 350 homemade pies to accompany every basket. The Hunger Coalitions Operations Manager Brooke Pace McKenna enthusiastically told me, “It’s a very generous crew of bakers. We ask for 350 pies and always get 400!” Nathan Twichell, lead teacher of the tenth through twelfth grade and director of the Community Service program at The Sage School is coordinating all the pie making efforts this year. He says they do a lot of collaboration with people around the Valley for ingredients, boxes and pie plates, but that the single biggest logistic is finding freezer space for the pies which the schools have been making since the last week in October. Many local families all over the Valley allow them to store the pies there until they pick them up on Nov. 21 to be delivered to The Hunger Coalition. Of the experience he said, “It’s a blast. Every time we go to work to bake pies with the students, it’s fun seeing them getting into that part of the season. It’s re-

Recycling Phone Books


s your home overflowing with outdated phone books? You can recycle them yearround by delivering them to the Ohio Gulch Recycling Center, but from Nov. 12 to Dec. 12, sponsor Names & Numbers will again make special dropoff locations available in Sun Valley, Ketchum and Hailey. During that month, you will find designated phone book recycling bins at Sun Valley City Hall; the Elkhorn Fire Station; the recycling drop at 4th and Spruce in Ketchum and at the Hailey Park & Ride lot (corner of Bullion and River streets). Phone books are made of paper, so are 100 percent recyclable; however, the curly plastic spines in some formats interfere with recycling. Please remove them. Want to be proactive and reduce future phone book load? You can customize what directories you want to receive at www., either by specific directories or quantities delivered. Like opting out of catalogs, this is not instantaneous, depending on the printing cycle of each company, but it does work.The Yellow Pages industry boasts that the use of vegetable-based inks and eco-friendly adhesives has reduced the industry’s petroleum consumption, and today’s books are also made from recycled paper, not virgin paper pulp. Due to smaller format books, and thinner pages, 29 percent less paper is used in phone books today compared to 2006. The books themselves can be upcycled into products like coffee cup carriers, egg cartons, cracker boxes, and cellulose insulation, so be sure to drop yours off for recycling.

Remember to Re-use


his is the second in our three part series of ReDuce, Re-use, and Re-cycle leading up to America Recycles Day on November 15th (watch for upcoming details of how Blaine County will be recognizing the day) Last week we challenged you to do one of our four suggestions to reduce items-thank you to everyone who accepted the challenge and let us know how you did. This week: Re-use! Our society has taken on the mentality of ‘one time use only, dump it when the next big thing comes along’….and that attitude tends to fill up our landfill. It’s become very easy to throw something away and just go get another one. So this is our challenge to you this week: Before you dispose of anything, consider if it has life left in it. This is par-

ticularly relevant when it comes to electronics. While the County does recycle electronics (everything except TV’s are accepted at the Ohio Gulch Recovery Center free of charge Monday-Saturday from 8am-5pm) more often than not, outdated electronics work well and could have a second life. Consider donating used computer or ipads to a non-profit organization for their administrative use, clock radios or VCR/ DVD’s to a technology class for students to take apart and learn how they work, cell phones to a non-profit organization for client use, or stereo/ipods to a kids club. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure! For more information on Re-ducing, Re-using, and Re-cycling in Blaine County, visit tws

Adams Gulch Hike Shows Recovery Prospects

Editor’s note: Karen Bossick wrote this story for the Twin Falls Times-News following the 2007 Castle Rock Fire. The time was right to run it in The Weekly Sun, as Wood River Valley residents ponder what Greenhorn Gulch and other areas impacted by the Beaver Creek Fire will look like next year and the year after. STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK


obbi Filbert smiled as she looked up a hillside in Adams Gulch, a popular hiking, mountain biking and dog-walking area near Ketchum. The hillside was black ground just 20 months ago, nearly every living plant on it burnt in the Castle Rock Fire that swept through Adams Gulch and threatened Ketchum and the Sun Valley ski area. Now, the area was solid with 3-foot-tall aspen shoots, accented with sticky geranium, cinquefoil and yellow goosefoot violets. “Lack of fire crowds out sun-loving plants like aspen, and fire gives it a chance to resprout,” Filbert told 15 curious adults and children gathered around her. “Initially, aspen sends up 30,000 to 40,000 shoots per acre. They thin out as they grow older.” The fire ecology walk, organized by the Sawtooth Botanical Garden as part of its Summer Wildflower Walks, was the first organized trip into Adams Gulch to see the changes that the 2007 Castle Rock Fire produced. The walkers seemed amazed to see that the area was so vibrant less than two years after the fire. “You realize this was all

burned,” Ketchum resident Jeanne Cassell told the walkers. “Isn’t nature marvelous?” The U.S. Forest Service had shifted from its old policy of putting out every fire by 10 a.m., said Filbert. But the public had yet to embrace the new policy, judging by the number of hikers who passed the group, offering up such comments as “Fire’s bad” and “No more fires.” Problem is, aspen generally live 80 years. Then they become susceptible to disease. Aspen stands need fire to survive, Filbert said. “We don’t want people to start a fire because they usually start it in the wrong place—in a drainage where the fire hightails it all the way to the top of the ridge. And once you take the fire from the surface to the canopy of the trees, you just have to stand back. There’s not much you can do,” she said. “Nature, on the other hand, starts ridgetop fires, which are generally much more useful in shaping our communities.” The group stopped to inspect a Douglas fir tree scorched a third of the way up. Douglas fir has inch-thick bark that can take a lot of heat without killing it. That’s why this particular tree will simply lose its lower limbs but continue to live, Filbert said. Aspen has very thin bark so it succumbs easier when fire inundates it. But aspen also has a high water content, which increases the humidity in its area. That means that aspen doesn’t typically burn in flames that stay on the ground, Filbert said. “Firefighters consider aspen groves safe areas because they’re so hard to burn,” she added.

A cornucopia of hollyhock was a big draw for hikers and bikers following the 2007 Castle Rock Fire.

A rat-ta-tat-tat on a mature aspen that somehow avoided being burnt to a crisp prompted the group to look upwards where they spotted a hairy woodpecker, a touch of red on the back of its head denoting its maleness. Woodpeckers love aspen because the soft wood is so easy to excavate, Filbert said. The group continued down the trail past yellow groundsel, bluebells, Oregon grape with jelly berries and small forget-menots—tiny blue disk-shaped flowers that stand a half-foot tall. Legend says the flowers got their name when a young

past 5 feet and they don’t go for things that crowd out aspen like Douglas fir. Seeds of plants like fireweed, which sport tall spires of pink-purple flowers, may have been there a couple hundred years just waiting for a fire that would give them a chance to emerge, Filbert said. “The seed bank is in the first couple inches of soil. That’s why we have to be careful about disturbing soil—even from grazing—after a fire,” she added.


Sawtooth Society Presents This Year’s Bethine Church Award Winners The Bethine Church Award honors individuals who have made important contributions to the betterment of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. This year, the Sawtooth Society honored Marie Osborn and the late Marilyn Marquis in mid-October with the prestigious Sawtooth Society 2013 Bethine Church Award at a reception at the High Country Inn in Stanley. The Bethine Church Award is bestowed periodically when the Sawtooth Society believes it important to recognize significant contributions to the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. Two awards are given: one for contributions in the private sector and one award for the public sector. This year, Marquis received the private sector award and Osborn received the award for her dedication to service in the public sector. The award is named for Bethine Church, the Sawtooth Society’s founding president. “My mother enjoyed being part of this community and felt it important to give of herself to benefit others and the community,” said Marquis’s son Rich Marquis who accepted her award on his mother’s behalf. Osborn created Stanley’s medical

Sue Goodwin paused a moment, tuning into the scene around her. “You hear a lot more songbirds in here than you used to,” she said. Indeed, Filbert acknowledged, the new growth that comes after a fire is conducive to animals, from songbirds to deer, that browse on the aspen. They can’t browse when the aspen gets

At Power I got to assist in the building of a geothermal power plant in Mexico. I also learned the software Smart Plant that encompasses all disciplines of engineering. Every aspect of civil, mechanical and electrical engineering is inputted into a database that creates a 3-D model of the power plant. The whole thing was an amazing experience.” One of many that we are sure will be coming his tws way.

rew Morse, Wood River High School senior, is a multifaceted and talented young man. While carrying a 4.3 grade point average and being a member of National Honor Society, Morse also works an apprenticeship program at Power Engineers as well as dabbling in singing with the B-Tones and recently took to the stage for the first time as the lead in West Side Story. Born in Boise, Morse moved here with his family when he was in the fourth grade and attended Hailey Elementary, Wood River Middle School and now the high school. When asked what he thinks about the Valley, Morse says, “I love it here,” with a big grin. “I’m an outdoorsy person and I’ve taken up all the activities that are offered here, like mountain biking, hiking and running. Sometimes I miss the diversity that a city has, but I’ll always miss the Sawtooths. I also like the fact that it’s a close-knit community. It’s hard not to see people that you know. I also have a close group of friends and I can probably name everyone in the senior class. All your achievements here are communal and you don’t have that opportunity in the city. It’s also easier to take advantage of

opportunities here because it’s a smaller pool of people. The perfect example is the summer internship that I got at Power Engineers. I was their first high school intern that they had and my dream is to become an engineer. It turned out to be amazing that I worked with so many types of engineers but it all worked because this is a small community and I pushed hard for the job. It was also great that I was making money.” Morse has nothing but praise for Wood River High School and has pushed the envelope by taking Advanced Placement U.S. history, English language and composition, literature, government, physics, calculus, world history and psychology. “I love the school because the teachers are really involved and they make great bonds with you. Teachers that I had years ago are constantly checking up on me. These connections help you grow personally. If you sign up for hard classes, the teachers are incredibly committed and knowledgeable and that is so important. I guess my passion is learning. I love being challenged in A.P. calculus or learning about ancient Rome. It’s the access to knowledge and digesting it and learning about it. Morse recently completed the Engineering Academy and is also a part of the robotics team.

Our Mission: To be a worldclass, student focused, community of teaching and learning.

Bugs Used to Squash Noxious Weeds Jr. Ski & Snowboard Lease Packages Now Available!



atti Dorr walked through the sagebrush north of Murphy’s Bridge, stopping where a swath of lavender-colored knapweed towered above the hardpan dirt. Slowly and methodically, the nurse removed the lid on a box she held in her hand. Then she turned the box upside down, shaking out a plethora of bugs, otherwise known as Larinus minutus. Dorr had just unleashed an army against an invading species—a noxious weed that wants to crowd out native vegetation in an overgrazed field north of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area headquarters. The release was part of a bio-control weed project on the Harriman Trail—a joint project between the Sawtooth National Forest and Pesticide Action Network of Blaine County. “Knapweed arrived in the United States from the Mediterranean. We can never get rid of it. But we can control it,” said Eric McHan, supervisor of the Blaine Bug Crew. The Larinus minutus, which Dorr unleashed, is a brown-grey weevil with a large bulbous snout native to Europe. The flower weevil lays her eggs on the flowers of knapweed as she feeds on its flower. The eggs hatch and the larvae feed on the flower and its seeds. They then begin feeding on the foliage as they mature before hibernating in the ground for the winter. Strong flyers, they can disperse though an entire knapweed patch in several years, collecting yellow fuzz on their bodies as they destroy the seed in the seedheads of plants that have invaded disturbed rangeland. A root weevil known as cyphoclonus achates, which kills plants by burrowing in the roots, is also being used in the weed control project along the Harriman Trail. McHan’s allies in the cause are his local biological control “agents”—four teen-agers from Bellevue and Dietrich. The team includes Carmen and Giovanna Leslie of Bellevue and Chandler and Kaden Tew of Dietrich. “It’s kind of interesting the thought of using bugs, rather than pesticides,” said McHan. “But the bio-control use of live agents like insects and fungus to control things like cheatgrass is becoming more and more attractive as schools and parks prohibit chemical sprays around playing fields and playgrounds.” “Asthma, attention deficit disorder and other health problems have been linked to exposure to chemicals, so we feel it’s important to get rid of sprays,” added Kathryn Goldman, who heads up the Pesticide Action Network of Blaine County. Over time, they develop a resistance to chemicals so the approach needs to be multifaceted anyway, said Robert Garcia, range manager for the Sawtooth National Recreation Area.

ers, the teens on the Bug Crew mark sites sporting knapweed, Dalmatian toadflax and other noxious weeds on GPS. They release a couple hundred bugs, each of which costs about $1, at each site. Then they set up a transcept to gauge how well the bugs do their job eating seedheads. “We’re limited in the places we can do this,” said McHan. “If we do it on private property and the neighbor next door sprays, the bugs are done.” Idaho was one of the first states to use bugs to control weeds, with the Bureau of Land Management introducing the concept 20 years ago. The state even raises bugs to supply to the rest of the world. Every once in awhile, for instance, the teens head to Featherville where they collect as many as 33,000 bugs in a single afternoon that they find munching on 15 acres of leafy spurge along Shake Creek. Researchers determined what bugs were useful by going to the places where the noxious weeds originated, said McHan. Knapweed, for instance, is not a problem in the Mediterranean where it originated because it’s controlled by bugs there. Once brought to the United States, the bugs were quarantined to make sure they wouldn’t eat useful plants.

Bio-control facts • Biological control principles have been used throughout the world for more than 100 years. • Biological control insects are tested extensively to make sure they damage only the target weed, not desirable plants. • There are more than 5,000 non-native plant species in the United States. • There are 32 biological weed control sites in Blaine County. • Other agents used in Idaho include the Canadian thistle-buster Urophora cardui, which keeps the thistle from flowering and thereby propagating; also, mesdinus janthinus, which destroys the stem of toadflax. tws

old weather has settled into the valley this week shrinking the fishing windows to a few midday hours. Fewer hours to fish doesn’t mean the fishing isn’t still good though. The Fall Baetis and Midges continue to hatch most days. The cold nights are dropping the water temperatures which is in turn indicating to the fish that it is their last chance to fatten up before the sparse winter months. This bodes well for anglers as the fish are much less selective and much more aggressive. Nymphing is picking up big time and an angler with a nice selection of Pheasant Tails in varying sizes will pick up plenty of fish on any of our local waters. The freezing temperatures are also going a long way into helping some of the waters that were affected by the fires clear. Maybe not to the extent that we should be fishing them, but it is encouraging to see. Silver Creek remains an infinitely interesting fishery right now, and well worth looking at with all the change brought on by the temporary pond removal. The fish certainly seem to like what has happened as the water column has been packed with food from the cleansing currents shifting over mud and gravel. There is gravel being exposed that hasn’t seen the light of day in 100 years. Moving on to bird hunting, the wave of northern waterfowl that came in last week stopped over for a day or two and has subsequently left for warmed climates, be that Hagerman or California! No worries as that was just the first very small wave of birds. Expect a lot more in the coming weeks. A few Pintails, Widgeon, Geese and Mallards have been in the bags of hunters, but I haven’t spoken to anyone that has shot a limit unless they were down on the Snake. So if you want fast and furious hunting follow the birds an hour south. Upland hunting remains fair, with a few Chukar and Huns being shot. We’ve seen a few Pheasants come out of the Gooding, Hagerman areas. With a little dusting of snow this action should pick up as the birds come to winter over at lower elevations and become more easily accessible. The Grouse hunting has remained one of the strongest upland hunts going due to the strong population of birds and until the snow falls they are going to remain easy to find!

Proper Estate Planning Now Can Help Reduce Conflicts Later


eath and finances are two subjects that many people are reluctant to talk about, resulting in many families not discussing their estate plans until it is too late. Individuals and couples of all ages put off planning, assuming things will work themselves out, but often times, a lack of planning can lead to ugly conflicts over the wishes of the deceased. As you prepare your estate plans, it is beneficial to initiate conversations and take a completely transparent approach with loved ones. One way to do this is to assemble your heirs and have a frank discussion of your assets and what each could stand to inherit. This will also allow you to discover if there are family heirlooms which may carry emotional attachments, such as a home or vacation home, to a specific heir. Finding out which of your possessions are most meaningful to your children will allow you to create a list of who will receive which items, clearly describing each item so as to eliminate any ambiguity. You may even consider gifting certain possessions while you’re still alive. If you own a family business, figure out which of your heirs – if any – are interested in one day taking it over. If any of your children are interested in assuming the business, develop a transition plan and groom your successor(s) by gradually trans-

Dr. Ira Byock On Death and Dying BY KAREN BOSSICK There are things worse than having someone you love die—there’s having someone you love die badly. So said Dr. Ira Byock at a recent presentation at the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood in Ketchum.

Don’t Wait for an Emergency to Prepare Chuck Turner, Blaine County Disaster Preparedness Coordinator, is the keynote speaker for this month’s Blaine County Republican Women’s gathering which is at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 14 in the Golden Eagle Clubhouse at 110 Golden Eagle Road. All are welcome and snacks are included. Are you ready for the next power outage? Fire? Or any emergency? Turner opined, “It’s generally held that

The Blaine County Board of Commissioners has announced decisions regarding Beaver Creek Fire recovery efforts. During a series of meetings on Oct. 28 and 29, Commissioners heard findings and recommendations from five cooperating agencies related to areas affected by the Beaver Creek Fire and subsequent heavy rains. The U.S. Geological Survey USGS), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) each presented an update of their findings from the field, recommendations for treatment and proposed agency action plans. Based upon these recommendations and proposals, the Board has decided as follows: 1) USGS and Blaine County will cooperate in the placement of precipitation monitors and early flood warning systems at six sites, plus modification of the existing Dollarhide Snotel site for timely flood warning. These sites include two stations in Baker Creek drainage, two stations above the Deer Creek and Willow Creek basins, and two stations at the Croy and Greenhorn Creek basins Total first-year project costs, including installation, operation and maintenance, is estimated at $48,100. USGS has approximately $10,000 available for cost share. Blaine County also will pursue cost sharing with the Idaho Bureau of Homeland Security.

2) In addition to work already performed under the Advanced Measures Program, USACE shall conduct further study and analysis of high-risk terrain to avoid and enable preparation for future debris flows and flood risks. The Corps is particularly concerned with areas in Greenhorn drainage, including the confluence of Greenhorn Creek and the Big Wood River, and areas in Deer Creek and Croy Creek basins. In the event of a flood disaster, USACE could be authorized to assist in a flood fight. Direct assistance is not being requested at this time. 3) NRCS shall prepare a final Damage Survey Report as well as a contract between Blaine County (as sponsor) and NRCS to undertake the Proposed Actions outlined in the report. Project components include aerial seeding, dredging or construction of sediment catchment basins, installation of debris fencing and contoured berms, stream channel and water course enhancements. Project costs, including all components, is estimated at $1,582,892, of which NRCS could pay 75 percent. Blaine County, as project sponsor, would be responsible for the balance; however, the Board of Commissioners will seek participation by affected private landowners and homeowners’ associations. Local match can be in-kind rather than all cash. Neither a final decision on the contract scope or a commitment to the contract has yet been made.

hen I heard Arcade Fire was releasing a double album follow-up to their Grammy Award-winning album, The Suburbs, I was excited, and then fearful. How would the band that unexpectedly beat out Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga and Eminem for the top prize in the music industry top the major pinnacle in their relatively short career? They went epic. Out of the thirteen songs on the two-disc set, only five are under five minutes. The opener, the title cut, clocks in at a little over seven and a half minutes; it’s danceable, sometimes sinister, and features backing vocals from David Bowie, who threatened to steal the song from them if they didn’t release it soon. Singer/bandleader Win Butler said that a lot of Reflektor was influenced by a trip to Haiti. OK, there’s hints of keyboards mimicking steel drums, some dub and dancehall beats, but for the most part it’s just straight-up Arcade Fire

doing what they do best—making dark, wall-of-sound music that sometimes comes close to incomprehensibility due to its sheer density. The closing song, “Supersymentry,” could easily be mistaken for a Phillip Glass composition, with its backward tape loops and avant-classic stylings. At times, it seems like they may be trying too hard, but how can you achieve anything if you don’t try? Reflektor is by far the most experimental and forward-thinking album Arcade Fire has put out, but even after winning a Grammy, did you expect a collaboration with Elton John? tws

The Remaking of a Classic BY JONATHAN KANE


Jon rated this movie

he problem with the new remake of Stephen King’s classic horror tale of bloody revenge is that it’s not too bad, it just isn’t very good, either. Which begs the question: Why make it at all? This leads to the inevitable answer that Hollywood doesn’t seem to have any idea what to do. The original stands as a quasi-camp classic and also as the best film that the overrated director Brian DePalma has ever made. Also memorable is the climactic scene when Carrie (in the original, an excellent Sissy Spacek) wreaks havoc at the high school prom after being bathed and humiliated in pig’s blood. Let’s face it – the reason you’ve probably come to this remake is to see the technological advances made since the original shocked audiences in 1976. Spoiler alert – save your money. The scene doesn’t hold a candle to the original. Maybe it’s because you know what’s coming but you’ll be sadly disappointed. Your desire for bloody revenge

zakk hill

will not be satiated. Perhaps this is the fault of the director Kimberely Pierce who may not have had the chops to pull it off. Maybe it’s because we don’t have John Travolta as the evil antagonist? Either way it’s hard to say, but the film doesn’t hold up. Why the fascination with the original novel? After all, it had been made into the 1976 feature, then a Broadway musical in 1988, which was recently revived, and then a 2002 television movie. Maybe the theme of extreme bullying has staying power. In this film the two leads do their best. Julianne Moore plays the controlling, insane religious fanatic to perfection. And Chloe Grace Moritz embodies the spawn of such a lunatic with telekinesis powers to boot. Whatever, you can wait for the DVD on this one. tws

shamanism finds a following in the wood river valley, from page 1 home with homework. One client sought Reeves’ help with a nightmare that had plagued her night after night. After a session with Reeves, she had the dream one more time only to see it end with movie credits. She hasn’t had the dream since. Diane DeCicco says Reeves’ energy work gave her an incredible sense of relaxation and peaceful sleep during a tough time when she was in charge of laying off people at her workplace. “At one point, it felt as if a thread was being pulled through three distinct points on my right side,” DeCicco added. “Later, I realized that the three points matched with three separate biopsy surgeries in my past. Reeves says that as a healer she guides people to do what needs to be done. “I go into an altered state of consciousness called journeying to help my clients. I’m helping you to step on the right path— the path of destiny, not fate. But you need to be willing to let go of whatever’s bothering you. And you have to keep on the path with integrity after I finish working with you.”

A Gathering in the Woods The full moon had yet to rise. But that didn’t stop 13 women, a man and a child from gathering in the woods around a fire ringed by rocks. “Father, Son—you who are known by a thousand names, you who are the unknowable— thank you for coming to our fire,” intoned Ann Christensen as she opened the ceremony. She faced in the four directions, shaking a feather each time. “To the winds of the South, Great Serpent, wrap your coils of light around us. Teach us to shed the past, the way you shed your skin. “To the winds of the West, Mother Jaguar, teach us the ways of peace. Winds of the East, Great Eagle, Condor, come to us from the place of the rising sun… Mother Earth, we gather for the healing of all your children.” Drumming followed. Then those standing around the fire entrusted an offering to the fire—a stick, a pinecone.

Drumming is an important part of the ceremony

Heidi Reeves teaches meditation followers to raise their hands above them, pointing to the heavens, and then bring their hands behind them, pointing to the earth, in order to establish a direct communication with heaven and earth. “You become a vessel for holding the energy of Father Sky and Mother Earth and you are able to source from these,” she said.

“The idea is to offer whatever you want to release or bring into your life. Say a prayer of grat-

itude and make your offering,” Christensen said. tws

Things I Learned From Yoga, Faith BY ALYSHA BETH OCLASSEN


had a conversation with a friend from my childhood this weekend. We reminisced a little and, after mutual compliments of how the years had treated us, the topic turned to the state of our country and the world. He expressed that he had very little confidence in our country’s leaders to make the right decisions for its people, and its people’s ability to see the truth. Much of what he said rang true for me and I left feeling a bit deflated. Pondering this over the next day lead me to deeply question how I felt about humanity. Strangely, despite all obvious evidence readily available, what I found at the bottom of all the fear and uncertainty was faith. I have never been a religious person. It’s not that I don’t like religion, I just wasn’t raised with it and so the practice of it feels alien to me. When I speak of faith I mean the place within me, the deepest recess of my heart and soul that tells me all will be all right. To clarify, by ‘all right’ I don’t mean a “perfect fairytale ending.” In all lives there are trials that leave us scarred. With luck, we move forward; having learned from these events, we

Baked Egg Yolk Nests BY MARGOT VAN HORN


his is a fun and actually splashy looking dish to serve your family or guests for a little special breakfast or brunch. It’s also very tasty and easy to make. So, give it a try. Baked Egg Yolk Nests Recipe below serves 2 or 4— depending on how many eggs each individual wishes to have.

Ingredients: 4 eggs, divided—whites in a medium-sized bowl and yolks saved whole in the broken shell 1/4 C. or more grated Parmesan or Pecorino-Romano 1/4 C. or more chopped chives 1/4 C. or more diced bacon,

ham or pancetta S&P to taste

Directions: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a cookie sheet or other baking sheet with parchment paper. Whip whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into whites the grated cheese, chives and diced bacon, ham or pancetta. Divide the egg whites as evenly as possible and spoon in mounds on prepared baking sheet. Make a deep well in each of the white mounds. Bake in preheated oven for 3 minutes. Then add your yolks in each

mound and top with S&P to taste. Bake yolks until firm—from 3 to 4 minutes. Serve with muffins and some other kind of yummy bread and a side of fresh fruit. Bon Appétit.

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I'm the kind of person who is always prepared. I make my lunch for work the night before. I put gas in my car on the weekends so my weekday mornings run smooth. When I wanted a new job, I prepared as well. I had my resume in order, went for a new haircut, and felt confident about my interview appointment. I was perfectly calm and ready, until the third question: "If you could trade places with someone in history, famous or not, fictional or real, who would it be?" The question caught me completely off guard like a deer in headlights. I suddenly became nervous, began to sweat, and my face went blank. I think I contrived an answer around Elvis, but it certainly wasn't anything stellar. My confidence was on shaky ground the rest of the interview and I felt like a fool. Any ideas on how I could be better prepared in case I ever get asked these off-the-wall questions again?

Duane “Cash” Holze & Todd “Carry” Holze 11/03/13 ©The Classified Guys®

behind the wheel?" They sound more like a board game than an interview, but ultimately, you never know what kind of questions will be asked. Cash: Some interviewers like to ask questions such as these to see how you react. Most people, like yourself, come into an interview prepared to talk about their skills or experience. A question like this allows the interviewer to challenge and monitor you in an unsettling situation. Carry: It's like simulating stress in the workplace and seeing how you react to unplanned events. Are you the type who thinks fast on their feet? Do you contemplate the question before answering or

jump right in and offer the first thing that comes to mind? Cash: The best way to prepare for an interview is to expect the unexpected. You never know what questions or events you may encounter. Carry: If you do get asked an odd question, remain calm and avoid looking like you were caught off guard. If you're unsure how to answer, don't worry about being witty or insightful. Take a deep breath and offer a simple, honest response so you can move on to the next question. Cash: As for your answer of "Elvis", it probably worked out well. After all, he was the King of "Taking Care of Business"!

The internet is an integral part of the job-hunting process these days. While many use it to find promising positions, company managers are using it to evaluate prospective candidates. In a survey by a business networking site, nearly 60% of interviewers use a search engine to locate information about a candidate and use it in the decision process. While 13% have hired someone from this information, including personal achievements, 25% stated they have rejected a candidate based on the search results.

Business Sense

While anyone can make mistakes during an interview, a survey of senior executives from over 1000 of the nation's largest companies found interesting results. The executives claimed that 47% of job candidates had little to no knowledge of the company where they were interviewed and 17% were unprepared to discuss their skills or experience. What other mistakes did the candidates make? Around 9% had little enthusiasm, 3% failed to make eye contact, and 2% focused too much on salary. •

Reader Humor Serve it Up

This year I went to my 10-year high school reunion and sat at a table with some old friends. It seemed most of them wanted to impress everyone with their careers. One guy mentioned how he became a defense lawyer, another talked about being a real estate broker. The third guy was a bit more sincere and shared how he dedicated himself to people dealing with problems. "I like to help people," he explained. "Some of my regulars are dealing with messy divorces, money trouble or stressful jobs." Impressed by his dedication, I asked, "So how do you like being a psychologist?" "Well I'm not really a psychologist," he laughed. "I'm just a bartender." (Thanks to Justin N.)
