Skiers Honor Macaya at Wild Game Feed STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


he Winter Olympics are still a year away. But Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation athletes hung gold medals around the necks of dozens of guests attending Saturday’s Wild Game Dinner to benefit the ski and snowboard program. The gold medals were a clever ploy to raise money for the Ski Education Foundation and its 450-plus athletes. Patrons paid $100 to wear a gold medal around their neck and be entered into a lottery with the winner getting a chance to pick any one of the 13 live auction items being offered. The winning pick? A trip for two on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River with Steve Lentz and Far and Away Adventures. Following that, the bidding got down in earnest. The 435 attendees at the Sun Valley Limelight Room led off with a high-octane bid of $4,000 for a Starbucks card worth one Starbucks beverage every day for a year. Two-time Olympian Jonna Mendes garnered a couple of $6,500 bids for a day with herself on the slopes and a Sun Valley Hel-Ski Day and Swiss Après Party raised another $6,500. Don Wiseman, who heads up the SVSEF, which brings three-quarters of a million dollars to the community with its events, told those in attendance that it had been an amazing year for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation, thanks to the continuing development of the Ski Academy and the acquisition of the Sagewillow Barn to use for dryland training. “And, after two years and a lot of work, we’ve been named the 15th Olympic/Paralympic training site, which means we’re going to have more world-class athletes come here to train and more events. And that really is a community effort,” he said, adding that the Foundation will meet with the community after the first of the year to decide how to shape the program here. Wiseman acknowledged Kate Berman, who was overseeing her last Wild Game Dinner after having shepherded the fundraiser since the days when parents brought wild game to her to be cooked. “I wouldn’t have done it for so long without the incredible support from the community,” she said. “I’ve been doing this so long because I’m incredibly passionate about this program and what it means.” Head Alpine Coach Ruben Ma-

Chapter One Bookstore: A Peek Inside the Pages “I’ve hung out in lots of bookstores in my 70 years, including the unique Chartwell Booksellers off Madison Avenue in New York City. But until I first set foot in Ketchum in 1985, I had never seen a bookstore so crucial to the well-being of a community as Chapter One.” -Charlie Brandt STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


hapter One Bookstore recently moved for the eighth time in 40 years. But it didn’t lose its following in the move. Even as local followers continued to flock to the indie bookstore now located at 340 E. 2nd St. in the former Dick Alf’s fly shop, the national accolades continued to pour in just as they have always done. The Ketchum bookstore, known for its Hemingway collection, its Idaho books and its spiritual and healing bent, was named one of Five Great Indie Bookstores in the Pacific Northwest as part of Seattle Metropolitan Magazine’s annual Northwest Travels award. Others ranked in the top five included Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle and Powell’s Books in Portland. And now it is included in a book that is just making its way to the shelves: “My Bookstore: Writers Celebrate Their Favorite Places to Browse, Read and Shop.” The chapter paying homage to Chapter One was written by Charlie Brandt, who has written a handful of Mafia books, including “I Heard You Paint Houses”—a book about Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, who confessed to killing Jimmy Hoffa. “It’s a big deal, kind of a momentous story,” said Cheryl Welch Thomas, the

Charlie Brandt and Cheryl Welch Thomas are celebrating the inclusion of Chapter One Bookstore in the new book, “My Bookstore.”

bookstore’s gentle, soft-spoken, blondhaired owner. “I was lucky to get into it because it’s mostly East and West Coast bookstores. I was thrilled about it—not just for myself but for all the independent bookstores and writers out there.” She’s so thrilled, in fact, that Thomas is throwing a party to honor some of her independent writers. The Celebration Party will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 24. It will feature Cristina Cook with her new cookbook, “Con Gusto: Cristina’s of Sun Valley,” along with book signings for Charlie Brandt, Todd Pedderson, Mary Ann Davidson and Leslie Little. It also will feature s’mores that patrons can make on a fire pit outside the store and other refreshments. Amy C. Nelson will offer mini-seated massages and Meg Mazzocchi, new paintings. “My Bookstore,” which is slated to get national press in the The New York Times, USA Today and NPR in the next

couple of weeks, features essays on 82 independent bookstores in America. Most boast names that are definitively not chain names—names like The Regulator, Longfellow Books, Talking Leaves Books, BookPeople and WORD. Those writing so eloquently about them include names that will be very familiar to Sun Valley audiences—Louise Erdrich, Ivan Doig, John Grisham, Abraham Verghese, Timothy Egan… Ron Rice, the book’s editor, wanted to include Chapter One because of Ketchum’s Hemingway connection. When Thomas suggested that Brandt write the essay, he was jazzed—he had read one of Brandt’s books. And, he related, the books fell off the shelves of his house when Philip “Chicken Man” Testa—the later head of the Philadelphia mafia—was blown to bits. Brandt was jazzed, too. He credited

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust Angel Aire’s ash-scattering product sends a fine mist out into the air. STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


cotty Crandlemire knows well that old adage that “necessity is the mother of invention.” That’s how he came up with Angel Aire. Angel Aire is an “elegant” way to scatter the ashes of the dearly departed. “Scattering the old-fashioned way from a bag or box is not dignified or memorable. This offers a way to provide a memorable and heartfelt send-off,” said Crandlemire. The Wood River High School graduate will pitch his invention to the Wood River Valley Thursday at Zions Bank’s Business Showcase. The free event, designed to showcase new businesses and new products and services of established businesses, is being held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Sun Valley’s Limelight Room. Crandlemire realized the need for his innovative ash-scattering product, which he patented a couple of years ago, when he was asked to spread the ashes of a fellow pilot in Reno, Nev., who had raced in air races. “I found myself holding this container of ashes and thinking, ‘Now what I am I going to do!?’ No one thinks of that,” he recounted. “I went to scatter them and they came back in my face and covered me. It was undignified. Not pretty at all.” Crandlemire is known for being a handyman, according to his father and stepmother, George and Barbie Crandlemire, who can always count on him to fix knick-knacks around their Sun Valley home.

Scotty Crandlemire designed this urn case for pets.

And, once Scotty started mulling over the ash-scattering dilemma, he couldn’t let go until the answer came to him in a dream. He came up with an attractive case powered by a tiny motor that sends ashes out in a mist. The majority climb into the sky where the ashes, which resemble fine talcum powder, appear to mingle with the sun’s rays. Crandlemire designed two different cases—an 18-by-22-inch cherry case for human ashes, and an 18-by-12-inch powder blue case for those of pets, with doggie footprints and a poem that starts, “I won’t be far away, for life goes on…” They are put on a pedestal during ceremonies. And Angel Aire provides professional scattering event planners that can put together a ceremony involving music, food and webcasting. “The ashes have a hang time so you can see how beautiful it is,” said Crandlemire, who credits years of waxing and tuning skis and surfboards for his handyman skills. “I had one client conduct a ceremony misting the ashes off a hillside into the ocean in Hawaii and it was very touching.” The urns can be purchased outright. Or they can be rented for between $350 and $500. Crandlemire expects his

product to become popular, given a death care industry that is $11 billion and growing as baby boomers approach the end of life. Sixty-three percent of Americans now scatter at some point, according to industry statistics, he added. Crandlemire touts his product as being good for the environment. “Embalming fluids are so caustic to nature,” he said. “My product offers a green burial— ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Back to Mother Nature.”

ou can take the kid out of the city but you can’t take the city out of the kid. So it goes for Community School junior Jamie Wygle who traded the hard pavement of Manhattan for the wilds of Idaho when he was ten years old. “I love it here but New York City is still my favorite place in the world. There’s no reason for it not to be. It still reminds me of being a little kid and it’s the greatest city in the way it moves and feels. I can’t get enough of it.” When asked what he misses the most about New York, Wygle says with a smile, “The guys who sell peanuts on the corner. I don’t have to buy them—just smell them. I also miss playing chess in Riverside Park on the Upper West Side where a guy who always stationed himself outside McDonald’s taught me how to play. I just love the noise and activity of the city. When I first moved to Idaho I couldn’t sleep because it was so quiet. We had visited a lot through my childhood because we have family here, but I really missed my life in New York City, because it is so different and so hectic.” Wygle added, “I sure met a lot of babysitters because one of my parents would work all day and the other all night. It was quite a feat and I never saw both of them at the same time.” As to moving, “I was pretty negative about it but it wasn’t so bad because I was in Sun Valley. The first thing I asked my parents when I got here was, ‘Where are all the black people?’ It was a little strange at first because my school in New York City was so diversified, which was great, but I never thought about it until I moved here. I love the people here but many are the same type and it can become a little repetitive.” What about the change in scenery? “It really scared me and I wasn’t too into the open spaces. The mountains are so beautiful but they’re so far away. The sense of space can be unsettling. Also, in New York, everything is right there, especially with the subways. I hate going to Twin for jeans. But I really do love it here, even though I’ll probably live in a city when I’m an adult. The best part of this place is the outdoor program at The Community School where we take three outdoor adventures each year. One was a river trip down the Salmon River and last year we took two great trips—one backpacking along the Washington coast for a week and one to Ashland, Oregon, to see theater. I also love to ski in the winter and I play tennis in the summer. I can always find some kind of adventure to go on.” Wygle reserves his real passion, though, for the theater, and admits that he may never know

why, but you do have to factor in that both his parents are thespians. “I love everything about it,” he said, “but I really love the chance to be someone else. You don’t usually have the chance to do that. It’s sort of like reincarnation.” Wygle cites as one of his favorite roles his most recent as the Elvis Presley-like Conrad Birdie in the musical ‘Bye Bye Birdie.’ “It was just a lot of fun and there is no one cooler.” He also has a lot of experience doing Shakespeare, as he has been a part of the nexStage Theatre’s Shakespeare festival for the last seven seasons. “My favorite was Midsummer’s Night Dream because the cast was so much fun and it is such a comical play. I felt my best performance was in Romeo and Juliet because I got to do a really dramatic scene, which was a lot of fun but the piece was pretty somber. In Shakespeare, the language is so antiquated but it’s really quite beautiful and although many of the plot lines are similar, they are all still unique.” Some of he other adult shows that he has appeared in are Christmas Carol for five years, The Nerd, and Arsenic and Old Lace. “My favorite roles have been in the spring children’s shows, especially Gollum in The Hobbit. He is a creepy, weird, pathetic, slimy creature who you want to die, but you also feel sorry for him. I also liked that there was a lot of movement, which will come in handy because I plan to be in The Nutcracker next.” As to the future, “I definitely want to pursue it [theater]. I can’t imagine my life without it, especially because I love being in front of an audience and wish my whole life could be like that. Also, people there laugh at my jokes. It’s so exciting because you always feel something’s going to happen. There’s always a real sense of excitement” — an excitement that Wygle also feels for a bright future on the boards. tws

Mousetrap Enjoys One More Week BY KAREN BOSSICK


gatha Christie’s “The Mousetrap” may be the longest continuous running play in history, with 70 years under its belt in London’s West End. But it has just four more performances to go at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. The play, performed by Laughing Stock Theatre Company, offers an amusing way to spend a chilly evening as the darkening days inch toward the shortest day of the year. It runs at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with a final matinee at 3 p.m. Sunday at the nexStage Theatre, 120 S. Main St. The play and its creepy rendition of “Three Blind Mice” opens with a radio broadcast of a suspicious murder in London, not far from the new guest house of Monkswell Manor. Pretty soon, a detective, played by the clippy-talking Dawson Howard, arrives with

the news that the individual who committed the murder may well be among the inhabitants of the guest home, which has by this time become snowed in. It doesn’t hurt the suspense that the manor’s first guests are either unpleasant or odd, from the cold, stilted Miss Casewell played by Anja Sundali to the excessive architecture student played by Mackenzie Harbaugh. Mr. Paravicini, played by J.D. Ryan, shows up out of the blue, claiming his car has overturned in a snowdrift. Maj. Metcalf, played by Doug Neff, seems okay, but then we really don’t know much about him. And then there’s the dour Mrs. Boyle, played to the point of a few chuckles by Joy Bond even though her penchant for being the world’s biggest critic no doubt has many audience members rooting for her to be killed off—and soon. At some point, the architecture student says, “You never know what anyone is really like…” and then we real-

If you Go…

What: “The Mousetrap” When: 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday Where: nexStage Theatre, 120 S. Main St., Ketchum Tickets: $20, available at 208726-9124.

ize—oops, we’ve overlooked the proprietors of the manor, played by Cyndi DuFur and Cameron Cooper. Why, for instance, was Mr. Ralston out and about at the time of the murder? The play is not your typical melodramatic murder mystery, said director Jamey Reynolds, who is aided by stage manager Gloria Gunter. “There is a story there that encompasses all the twists and turns and dramatic nuances that Dame Agatha has used over the years,” he said. “And it’s a very human story, as opposed to others that are very much murder mysteries.”

a recipeâ&#x20AC;Śfrom my table to yours By lacey hillman


chose this recipe because it is great for all experience levels of cooking and the ingredients are fun and easy. Once you have a piping hot wonton, you will want more. I seem to have a natural intuition in the kitchen. Turn on some music, pick up a knife and go with the flow. Cook for health and fun! This October will be 10 years here for me in the Wood River Valley. I love the friendly community and the feeling of being hugged by the beautiful hills and mountainsâ&#x20AC;Ś endless sunshine and all four seasons! I love this Valley! To cook is to know food intimately. It is a beautiful relationship.

Thank you, Lacey, for your recipe. Enjoy everyone! If you have (or know someone who has) a recipe to share, e-


Fresh JalapeĂąo and Cream Cheese Wontons 16 fluid ounces vegetable oil 12-24 square or round wonton wrappers 6-8 ounces cream cheese

3-5 fresh jalapeĂąos 2-3 fluid ounces sweet chili dipping sauce (teriyaki or plum sauceâ&#x20AC;Ś it is all yummy).

This is a fun winter appetizer for a small get-together. Best served fresh and HOT. Substitute bananas for jalapeĂąos and honey for dipping sauce to get a gorgeous dessert. First you will need a wok or semi-deep medium to large pot. Pour your vegetable oil into this and place on the stove, turning heat to low. Pull your cream cheese out of the package and put in a dish to soften while you prep. While the oil is heating, wash and dry your fresh jalapeĂąos, then slice them down the centers and remove all the seeds. Next, slice both halves several more times and finely chop the peppers. Remember to wash your hands thoroughly after this step. Place your chopped jalapeĂąos in a bowl, fill another small dish with a little warm water, pull your wonton wrappers out of the fridge and prepare to fill. When you are ready to start creating the wontons, turn your heat up to medium-high/high. The longer you cook, the lower your heat will need to be. Grab your wonton wrapper and place just about a tablespoon of cream cheese in the center. Next, use a spoon to add 1/2 tablespoon of jalapeĂąo, dip your finger in the warm water and use it to wet the outer edge of the wonton wrapper. If using a square wrapper, fold in half diagonally, creating a triangular shape. For round ones, just wet and fold, then press the edges together to avoid leaking of ingredients. Carefully drop your wontons into the hot oil. Let brown on both sides for 1-2 minutes, then remove and place on a plate with a paper towel. Long tongs are ideal for this recipe. Put hot wontons in a colorful dish and serve with a sweet-chili dipping sauce, or any number of delicious dips. :)

A Great Thanksgiving Dish BY MARGOT VAN HORN


o one will guess what the middle layers (parsnips) are. This is really a delicious dish, full of good nutrients and, though tasting very rich, is really very light on the belly. This is a perfect dish to accompany your plentiful Thanksgiving fare. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an overnight dish, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make it a bit easier for the cook making the big-day fixings on Thanksgiving Day. Scalloped Yams and Parsnips Serves about 6-8

Ingredients: 3 1/2 lbs. yams 1 1/2 lbs. parsnips 1 orange 1/3 C. brown sugar, divided in 2 parts 4 oz. unsalted butter, divided in 2 parts 2 tsp grated nutmeg salt and pepper 2 C. boiling water 2 Tbsp. honey

Instructions Pam spray a 9-by-12-inch baking dish or 10-inch-round Pyrex dish. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel yams and parsnips and cut in 1/4-inch-thick slices. Zest 1 orange and, afterwards, juice it. After juicing, take the pulp from the orange and place in a blender with a splash of water. Blend on liquidize and use half or more for this dish. Gather together in a dish the orange zest, some pulverized

pulp, 1/2 of the brown sugar, 2 oz. sweet butter, crumbled, nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Make 3 layers of yams with 2 layers of parsnips in between; sprinkle on each layer the orange zest mixture. (Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have 5 layers in all.) Mix together orange juice, some more pulverized pulp if any is left, and the 2 C. of boiling water and pour over yams and parsnips. Cover the baking dish tightly with foil and bake in the upper third of a 400-degree oven for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake 20 minutes more. Put in refrigerator overnight. The next day, remove dish from refrigerator. In microwave, heat the other 1/2 of the brown sugar, 2 Tbsp. honey, and the other 2 oz. of butter and pour over top of dish. Let dish get to room temp and place in a 375-degree oven for approximately 20 minutes or until more of the liquid is absorbed and the top is brown. Serve and enjoy.

Hailey City Council to Consider Renaming Rodeo Grounds Property on Monday On Monday, Nov. 19 the Hailey City Council will hear a presentation on a proposal to officially adopt the name of the city property commonly referred to as the Rodeo Grounds as Werthheimer Park. The Hailey Historic Preservation Commission and the Parks & Lands Board have both recommended this proposal to honor the donation to the City of Hailey by Leopold Werthheimer at the time of his death in 1913.

Geography Is Destiny PHOTO & STORY BY BALI SZABO


e frequently call our little valley â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;paradiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; because we like it here. Looking at the electoral map that showed this blue lake in an otherwise red Idaho, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tempting to conclude that this ambience is political, a group of like-minded people living in peace Beach erosion, Cape Cod. and harmony. We know better. Our paradise has more to do with the destiny of geography than being a progressive counterweight to Stone Age Boise (not the people, the Legislature). There are many paradises, and thinkers for the last 5000 years have painstakingly constructed them like so many sand castles against the tide of reality. While we keep hoping for the ultimate, we have to settle for far less. It seems all we really want is to be saved from intemperate nature. In less lofty parlance, we think of the islands of Bali or Hawaiiâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;warm, subtropical venues with smiling, carefree natives, breeze-stirred palms, grass skirts, a cocktailâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and relief from the rat race. Chambers of commerce go to great lengths to hypnotize us with this PR. The unifying factor in these little serendipities is year-round nice weather. We almost qualify as a paradise destination, mostly because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get weather. Our valley has been saved from it. If you want weather, spend a winter in Stanley. When I first moved here in 2000, Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road sign said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Welcome to Stanley. Pop. 69. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason for that. Our temperatures rarely exceed 100 degrees; we are spared the scouring winds of the Magic Valley; our precipitation is modest, perhaps too much so. Extremes are rare here. Buttressed by mountains on three sides, we resemble Aspen and its Roar-

ing Fork Valley, fondly referred to as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;banana belt.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This climatic benevolence attracts money, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our location that is responsible for our culture. The East Coast is the most populous part of the U.S. About 30 million people live in coastal areas, but even landlocked states suffer from various ravages. The weather from the Pacific grazes us, like Brutus (which, incidentally, dumped 36 inches of snow in some spots of the Mountain West). We are naming winter storms now. Once past the Rockies, these weather systems bring mayhem to points east. The eastern U.S. is a funnel. It catches the storms that track across Canada and the Great Lakes. Buffalo knows all about it. Systems from the Plains states bring mixed precipitation like snow, sleet, rain and ice storms all at once, and then transfer their energy off the coast, north of the Carolinas, creating norâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;easters like Athena. Weather also comes up from the south, bringing Christmas rainstorms to the Berkshires and Northern New England ski resorts. And then there are the year-round coastal storms like Sandy that can grow into life-changing calamities, like the Hurricane of 1938, or the Great Blizzard of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;78. The East is in between the continental Arctic blasts of the north and those idyllic southwest/easterlies from the Caribbean bathtub. The East gets it all, and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need any help from global warming or climate change. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know in a decade whether the increasing frequency and intensity of disaster weather is an established pattern or not. Back East, the perfect storm lies in wait for its day, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no place or time for paradise. tws

Raise Your Glass to Recycling, Reuse

Recycling is an easy, daily way for us to take environmental action. So why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Blaine County â&#x20AC;&#x153;recycleâ&#x20AC;? glass? The county, local citizens and waste management experts recently researched, in depth, recycling options for Blaine County, finding: â&#x20AC;˘ The nearest glass recycler (melting glass into bottles) is in Golden, Colo. Sending our 900 tons per year of glass there would cost an estimated $70,000 yearly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; too costly. â&#x20AC;˘ Crushing glass into aggregate for local use would cost about $100,000 in equipment and $50,000 in facility renovations; plus up to $30,000 yearly maintenance. This would make 900 tons (a relatively small amount) of sellable glass aggregate, which is already plentiful and relatively inexpensive. Again, a costly option. So the county has chosen to continue to â&#x20AC;&#x153;reuseâ&#x20AC;? glass as cover material at the Inert Materials Pit (at Ohio Gulch) where items that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t decompose can safely and legally be disposed. Glass was taken out of curbside

Living Well

collection by Blaine County for two reasons: â&#x20AC;˘ Curbside collection has been hazardous. There have been injuries to staff collecting and processing glass. â&#x20AC;˘ It contaminates the other recyclables. The truck design, as well as unloading process, allows glass shards to contaminate other materials. The contamination was so severe in one instance that the county paid for costs to repair machinery damaged by glass in a paper load. So now glass is collected at dropoff locations for local reuse. The good news: The county glass reuse program saves about $40,000 in hauling costs and landfill fees, and prevents 9.2 tons of transport-caused greenhouse gas emissions. CHEERS to glass reuse here in Blaine County! This ERCbeat was written by Blaine County staff, in recognition of America Recycles Week. Have a question or want to write your own ERCbeat?

UI-Blaine Extension Tips

Do You Have Some Green Potatoes?

Has anyone ever told you â&#x20AC;&#x153;green potatoes are poisonousâ&#x20AC;?? Whether store-bought or homegrown, potatoes will turn green when they are exposed to light or very cold or warm temperatures. When potatoes are exposed to light, metabolic activity in the skin increases as it prepares to send out shoots. As a result, chlorophyll is formed, which provides the green color. Chlorophyll itself is not toxic; however, its presence indicates concentrations of solanine, which is a glycoalkaloid toxin. This bitter, poisonous, crystalline alkaloid is part of the plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defenses against insects, disease, and predators. Potato leaves and stems are naturally high in glycoalkaloids, so ingestion of these parts of the plant must be avoided at all costs.

The amount of solanine increases with the length of exposure and intensity of light. Solanine interferes with the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to use a particular chemical that facilitates the transmission of impulses between cells. Ingested in large enough amounts, it can cause vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, and even paralysis of the central nervous system. An occasional green potato chip shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause you any worry, but do avoid eating green portions of the potato by peeling away or cutting off the affected area. Discard any potatoes that have green eyes, sprouts, or greenish skins, rather than prepare and serve them, especially to children. Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smaller body size makes them more susceptible to ill effects.

Feng Shui in the Kitchen BY KAREN BOSSICK


f you nurture any room in your house, make it the kitchen. The kitchen is the heart of our home, the room that most influences our health and well-being, says Laura Carlin, author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inspired Everyday Living.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the center of activity and communication so we should make sure itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calm and clutter-free so we can be present for every interaction, she added. Carlin, who recently moved to Ketchum, spoke last week at a workshop presented by herself; Kathryn Guylay, founder of Nurture, which educates parents and children about healthy eating; and Paulette Phlipot, who photographed the ultimate foodie book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;RIPE.â&#x20AC;? The event was Ketchumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answer to Food Day 2012 being celebrated nationally. Carlin, who focused on feng shui in the kitchen, said that clutter is the enemy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often the dining room table becomes the family dumping ground. Chances are weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to clean it off. And if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t clean if off, the chances for interaction around the family dinner table go down,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Similarly, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find the food processor or recipe, chances are you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to use them.â&#x20AC;? Carlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto: If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not beautiful, useful or loved, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clutter. Dump expired vitamins, gift

foods youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never use, broken tools and containers without lids, she exhorted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Managing our stuff takes time. Whether you do it on a weekly or monthly basis is up to you.â&#x20AC;? Carlin also exhorted the men and women present to pay attention to the chemicals in kitchen and home products. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just as chemicals have found their way into our food, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found their way into our homes in things like particle boards,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thousands have been introduced without being tested so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve essentially become guinea pigs.â&#x20AC;? Dishwashing detergents can leave residue on plates. And perfume? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Perfume gave me headaches. When I stopped using perfume, my headaches disappeared,â&#x20AC;? Carlin said. All-natural beeswax candles are better than synthetics. If you use plastic containers, avoid those with numbers 3 and 7 on them, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cool your food down before you put it in plastic and never microwave in plastic. I used to think stainless steel was the best cookware, but now it looks like ceramic may be safer. Do avoid Teflon,â&#x20AC;? she said. There are a few websites that may be useful for those concerned about chemicals in the home, Carlin said. Among them: healthychild. org, and tws

he snow has yet to pile up. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean people arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dreaming powder dreams. On Saturday retail shops and other organizations will offer a daylong Sawtooth Snow Safety Festival to get powderhounds prepared for recreating in the snow. The free event will be held from noon to 7 p.m. indoors and outdoors at Carolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dollar Mountain Lodge. It will include pointers on how to navigate the Sawtooth National Forest Avalanche Center website, making sound decisions in avalanche country and preparing for backcountry mishaps. The event is free, but donations will be accepted for the Sawtooth National Forest Avalanche Center. The Snow Safety Festival builds on a smaller avalanche beacon event hosted last year by Ski Tek, said Susan Hansen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great opportunity to see new safety equipment on the market, from avalanche beacons to airbags. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll give people a chance to try on different bags and see how they blow up,â&#x20AC;? said Andy Munter, owner of Backwoods Mountain Sports. Scotty Savage, former snow safety director at Big Sky, Mont., and now the new forecaster at the Sawtooth National Forest Avalanche Center, will give the keynote presentation on staying safe in the backcountry. Savage is considered one of the tops in the field, said Munter. Sawtooth Mountain Guides received a permit to take 50 skiers or snowboarders into the backcountry off Bald Mountain this winter in a test program, said Ketchum District Ranger Kurt Nelson. Paying guests will ride the lifts up Bald Mountain where they ski under the ropes that mark Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boundaries. They are permitted to ski off Seattle Ridge down into the Greenhorn Gulch area and off the Warm Springs side just to the south and west of The Burn, an area burned during the 2007 Castle Rock Fire. The backcountry tours are out of bounds and therefore not under the control of Sun Valley Resort and its ski patrol, cautioned Mike Lloyd, who supervises the Sun Valley Ski Patrol. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not calling it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;side country.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out-of-bounds backcountry.

There are more and more backcountry users and we want to make them aware of the risks and dangers so they can be safeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost too many of our friends over the years. Everyone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out thereâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;even snowshoers and dog walkersâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;should come and get educated. If you live in avalanche terrain, this is for you.â&#x20AC;?

Year-End Gifting


hat do you get for the person who has everything? With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about which gifts you’ll be giving to the important people in your life. Giving cash or Lori Nurge securities as a gift just may be the practical solution you are looking for. Not only will the recipient enjoy receiving your gift, but there may be benefits for you as well. Since individuals are allowed to give up to $13,000 to another person in 2012 without incurring a gift tax, gifting securities or cash may help reduce the taxable value of your estate, which can assist you in your estate-planning efforts. And, you can team up with your spouse to double your gift, giving up to $26,000 to each individual without paying any gift tax. This tactic, which the IRS refers to as “gift splitting,” can allow you to quickly reduce your estate by a large amount. Just as a reminder, under the Tax Relief Act of 2010, the lifetime federal gift tax exemption increased to $5 million for 2011 and 2012 from $1 million, giving people with larger estates the ability to move more assets out of their estates on a tax-free basis while they’re still alive. We do not yet know whether this exemption will revert to its previous level after 2012, so if you have a large estate, you may want to take advantage of this opportunity while it’s available. There are a variety of investments that may be utilized for gift-giving purposes, depending on the dollar amount you’re willing to spend. For example, mutual funds or U.S. government securities are investments that can be purchased in relatively small amounts, or in higher amounts should you wish to give a larger gift. Many people also find that the holiday season is a good time of year to give to their favorite charities. This year, you may wish to donate shares of stocks to your favorite charity in addition to, or instead of, cash. Or, if you feel that your loved ones have all that they need and desire this holiday season, you might consider making a donation to their favorite charities on their behalf. Gifting to charities is a great strategy for assets that have appreciated in value as it provides you with a tax deduction and allows you to avoid capital gains tax while reducing the value of your estate. You should keep in mind that gifting — whether an outright gift, gift to a minor, or charitable gift — involves legal or tax issues that require professional assistance. You should consult with your legal and tax advisors for more complete information pertaining to your particular situation. 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 firm’s Ketchum office at (208) 622-8720 or via e-mail at tws


Fifth Graders Receive Anti-Bullying Lessons In partnership with The Advocates for Survivors of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault, all fifth-grade students in the Blaine County School District (BCSD) will participate in an anti-bullying program this week. BCSD school social workers will be teaming up with Travis Jones, The Advocates’ Director of Engaging Boys to Men program, and traveling to each elementary school to impart the message of how to “Get In, Get Out or Get Help” to combat all types of bullying. This program will focus on “Relational Aggression,” which is a more secretive or subtle type of bullying

that can include put-downs, rumors and exclusion. The strategies the students will learn are in line with current research in the importance of the role witnesses and bystanders play in stopping bullying. The program is part of year-round educational efforts around bullying. The Blaine County School District is committed to the teaching of social emotional learning and compassion. For further information on social emotional learning and bully prevention resources, please visit http://www.

movie review

On The Pacific Crest Trail Wild by Cheryl Strayed Hardback, 2012, 315 pgs. biographical



his is an Oprah Book Selection. I do like Oprah’s selections so I picked this up as a listening CD for a little road trip, and then the book to finish it. I’ve done that a lot of times and, even though it’s a bit weird changing from the hearing to the seeing mode, it works. By the way, the reader (Bernadette Dunne) of this CD is excellent. I really liked this book, I guess partially because I have also trekked on some of the PCT myself. So, I do know the gorgeous scenery and solitude that is to be found there. As well, as a solo woman, I used to take my two children on long backpack trips in the Sierras. Consequently, I am well acquainted with carrying a heavy pack and being in the “wilds.” I guess that when I heard about this book, I wanted to read it because of my own memories. “Wild” is 26-year-old Cheryl Strayed’s very honest tale of

trying to let go of her angers (death, family destruction, horrible childhood parental experiences) in hopes of finding some peace in herself through several months of backpacking by her lonesome on the Pacific Crest Trail, from Mojave, Calif., to Oregon/ Washington. She had never backpacked before and was totally inexperienced. What amazed me was how unprepared and naïve she was from the get-go. Frankly, I think that she was very lucky to have made it through to where she finally decided to end her journey. No matter, it was a gutsy thing for her to do and I really enjoyed reading her descriptions of her adventure: those having to do with the magnificent nature; the meeting of the various fellow travelers found on the trail; of the animal encounters; of getting lost; enduring toenails falling off; of severe weather happenings; and, consequently, of her inner-soul explorations. It was a hard book to put down. So, CD or bookwise, enjoy! Give us your feedback at tws

The Punch line

Portrait of an Alcoholic BY JONATHAN KANE


he actor Denzel Washington is good. I mean, he’s really good, and perhaps he has never been better than in Robert Zemeckis’ new film Flight. In perhaps one of the most harrowing portraits of an alcoholic seen on the screen, Washington makes a good case for the Oscar for best performance. For the director Zemeckis, it is a return to form, as Flight is the first live-action film that he has made in 12 years, since Cast Away, and may rank as his best work yet in a career that has had a lot more hits than misses. This is a big-budget small film and the advertising makes it seem more like an action film than an intimate portrait of a man in a downward spiral. But what an action scene! Although the crash in Cast Away

was a nail-biter, it’s nothing compared to the edge-of-yourseat thrills that Flight delivers. Washington is a pilot and an ordinary short flight from Orlando to Atlanta turns out to be anything but ordinary. Fueled by beer, cocaine and pot, Washington pilots the plane through heavy turbulence, only to have it fall apart midair. In one of the most harrowing scenes ever put on celluloid, he stops a nosedive by inverting the plane, in a maneuver that we are told no one could duplicate, and crashes in a field with only the loss of six lives. But the toxicology report, later suppressed, tells the truth, and now he is facing a life sentence in jail. That’s when the real story begins, as Washington, rather than shaping up, begins a descent into hell. Playing a drunk is tough business and the actor’s trick is to not play him drunk at all. To

Jon rated this movie

this, Washington’s performance is flawless and he conveys more with his eyes than with anything else. Subtle and extremely powerful, Washington dominates every frame that he is in. John Goodman, playing his drug-dealing friend, and Don Cheadle, as his lawyer, also gives him excellent support. Special notice goes to Kelly Reilly as the addict he meets in the hospital and later looks to for his salvation. But a lot of the credit for the film’s power goes to Zemeckis. He has beautifully crafted a movie that is a must-see for everyone who loves movies. tws

Is the Internet Sabotaging Our Minds Is the Internet Sabotaging Our Minds? What the Internet is doing to our brains will be the focus of a book discussion led by Kim Madsen, Assistant Professor of English. Join her at 6 p.m. this Thursday, Nov. 15 at the Hailey Public Library. This discussion is part of the library’s Let’s Talk About It adult book club series, which provides books, themes and scholar-led discussions. Madsen, who currently teaches composition and literature at the College of Southern Idaho, will talk over The

Shallows. In it, author Nicholas Carr argues that the Internet has shortchanged our brain power. “Consider this quote,” encourages Madsen. “ ‘What the Net diminishes is . . . the ability to know, in depth, a subject for ourselves, to construct within our own minds the rich and idiosyncratic set of connections that give rise to a singular intelligence.’” All are welcome to participate. For more information visit the HPL in person, or online at

Cheryl for calling him over to sign copies of “I Heard You Paint Houses” to part-time Sun Valley residents Jerry and Kathleen Chamales and soon they bought an option on his book for a movie starring Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. “Cheryl and I have been close for 20 years—she held a book signing for my first book in 1988 when she was across Main Street. We’re like family. She calls my wife Nancy ‘Sis.’ And I’ve done service in her store, organizing the young adult section. When I’m away—and I’m away a lot since I have another home in Delaware—I order my books from this bookstore. I wish everyone would.” Brandt’s essay describes how Hemingway was “compelled” to live in this “paradise on earth” with its “near-constant blue skies and invisible healing air.” And he describes how Chapter One Bookstore is the one place in Ketchum where celebrities feel free to let their hair down. “I’ve hung out in lots of bookstores in my 70 years, including the unique Chartwell Booksellers off Madison Avenue in New York City,” he wrote. “But until I first set foot in Ketchum in 1985 I had never seen a bookstore so crucial to the well-being of a community as Chapter One.” Brandt goes on to list Thomas’ work on behalf of the Animal Shelter, The Hunger Coalition and other causes dear to her heart and describes eavesdropping on the late Richard Holbrooke talking about Kosovo in the store. “Hemingway famously observed that ‘Writing, at its best, is a lonely life.’ If Hemingway were alive, Cheryl would make sure that he came by the store, if only to chat a spell. It would be good for him,” Brandt concludes. Thomas has only been to a handful of the bookstores listed in the book—she’s too busy dispensing word advice from behind the counter of her own bookstore. She worries whether data banks can handle the huge demand caused by Kindle. “There seems to be a resurgence of love for the book and I’m thrilled because I love books and I love the written word. And I feel like I need to be here for independent authors—so many authors come in desperate for a place to put their books,” she said. Indeed, an overwhelming number of writers owe their careers to the great independent bookstores, writes Emily St. John Mandel in “My Bookstore.” “There are no staff picks on Amazon because there are no people on Amazon… There is an argument to be made that Amazon’s current business practices are no longer even in Amazon’s best interests since every closed

bookstore represents one fewer place that might potentially be persuaded to stock the titles from Amazon’s new publishing imprints,” she added. “But this is no time for a requiem—the American Booksellers Association reports that its membership has been slowly but steadily increasing.”

A LOOK IN THE BOOK John Grisham is one of America’s top novelists. But he recounts in “My Bookstore” how he couldn’t get bookstores to be bothered with an unknown author’s first novel when he hit the road with his first book, “A Time to Kill,” in 1989. Five bookstores did offer him signings, including That Bookstore in the depressed cotton town of Blytheville, Ark. And owner Mary Gay Shipley and her husband Paul even found some green beer to go with green popcorn since the signing was on St. Patrick’s Day. With the publication of “The Firm,” “The Pelican Brief,” “The Client,” and “The Chamber,” book signings started stretching as long as 10-plus hours and Grisham quit doing them. But he’s remained loyal to those first five stores. “For the past several years I have sneaked into Mary Gay’s back door and signed 2,000 copies of each new book…There’s a lot of local gossip and I’ve picked up more than one idea for characters,” he writes. Ivan Doig, though from Montana, sings the praises of University Book Store in Seattle: “I have hailed booksellers (and librarians) as the bartenders of information, and nowhere is

the intoxication of reading more readily at hand than at the big store by the big U (of Washington).” Kate Niles, author of “The Basket Maker,” describes Maria’s Bookshop in Durango, Colo., which boasts old snowshoes on the walls, along with Navajo rugs: “The Southwest oozes through the store because the mountains and deserts we all live here for are our muse and deserve a place in this haven of bookdom.” Chuck Palahniuk, author of “Fight Club,” describes how Powell’s Books in Portland taught him that Amy Tan doesn’t like to touch people or books: “It’s for some reason having to do with germs or viruses, and most of her autographing consisted of people sliding their open books past her while she leaned over them and wrote her name at arm’s length…” Terry Tempest Williams described how Betsy Burton, the proprietor of The King’s English Bookshop in Salt Lake City, is a woman for whom “Local First” is not just a slogan she uses for supporting local business but a philosophy she extends to include local writers. And Tom Robbins recounted how he once had backup singers undulate behind him at a book signing at Village Books in Bellingham, Wash.: “I’m one of those cats for whom a good bookshop serves as a temple, a cathedral, a holy shrine, a sacred grove, a gypsy caravan, a Tijuana nightclub, an amusement park, a mental health spa, a safari camp, a space station and an indoor field of dreams.” tws

Phonebook Recycling Begins This Friday Many people have homes and offices overflowing with extra or outdated phone books. Finally an option exists to choose which directories to receive and how many copies of each. The Association of Directory Publishers has an opt-out feature at www. that is very easy to use. Simply enter your zip code and choose among the directories for your area. Like opting out of catalogs, this process is not instantaneous, depending on where each directory is in their printing cycle, but it does work. Reducing the volume of unwanted phone books is the best practice, but then what can you do with the stack of outdated ones? Phone books can-

not be combined with other paper for curbside pick-up. Blaine Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resource Recovery Center at Ohio Gulch accepts phone books all year long (remove spiral binders, please), and from Nov. 16 to Dec. 17 there are four drop off locations sponsored by Names and Numbers Directory. These are: in Ketchum, the LDS Church parking lot at 4th and Spruce; Sun Valley City Hall; Elkhorn Fire Station; and in Hailey at the Park and Ride lot at Bullion and River streets. The unwanted phone books will be reborn as products like coffee cup carriers, cracker boxes, and cellulose insulation. Info: 208.726.4333 or reduce@

Zions Bank Scores Big with Military Exhibit STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


few items set up to honor veterans snowballed into a display of museum-like quality at Zions Bank in Ketchum this past week. Zions Bank, which offers military banking, encouraged its branches to find a way to salute service members and veterans for Veterans Day. Ketchum employee Sooz Alfs took it on as a labor of love and brought in some memorabilia of her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. On spotting it, banking clients began bringing in their own memorabilia. As they did, they told bankers the stories that went with the memorabilia. The exhibit includes three military uniforms; a cardboard calculator used to calculate altitudes in the days before GPS; an aviator hat, dress sword, and

poster detailing military awards and a Silver Starâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the third highest military decoration that can be awarded to someone serving with the U.S. Armed Forces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it,â&#x20AC;? said LuaWanna Nigra, who describes herself as a Navy brat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This represents the people who take care of us. I think we tend to forget what these people did for us and something like this helps us remember. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really cool to look at it at night through the windows when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lit up.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got people looking through the windows at it. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty cool,â&#x20AC;? echoed Alfs. The exhibit offers veterans and their loved ones a place to display their memorabilia and a place to tell their stories, said Zionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jeffra Syms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope to make it bigger and better next year,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already had a lot of

The script was written for Obama to win because we figured that was what was going to happen, and we were so happy when he did, not only because he’s still our President, but because we didn’t have to change the script at all.” The Richmond, Va., native talked frankly about the recent election. “It was a resounding victory for Obama. Maybe people are getting sick of the conservatives, once and for all. Maybe a little bit more socialism in our government wouldn’t be such a bad thing. In Europe—sure, it’s socialism, but it’s also social democracy—and it makes sense. People over here have been

brainwashed that socialism is communism, and they don’t even understand what it is.” Brockie went on to say, “One of the biggest things that Obama does that people don’t really give him credit for is that he’s managed to get us out of these two foreign wars, that have been such a drain on our economy and our people.” Back to the topic of Gwar and their current Fate or Chaos Tour, Brockie said it was going well. Brent Purgason, aka Pustulus, stepped in to fill the shoes of former lead guitarist Corey Smoots, aka Flattus, after he passed last year. “To find a new guitar player, get him worked in, and even get as much work as

hen I say my ears bled when I went to see Gwar in concert last week, I really mean it. But the blood was the washable, fake, Hollywood type, and it was spilled—or, rather, sprayed on the audience—in the name of satire. I got the opportunity to meet up with David Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus, before getting drenched in the red washable substance at the show. He seemed very much at home in the dressing room of Boise’s Knitting Factory while sitting amongst an assortment of colossal Styrofoam, latex and rubber monster feet, heads and other body parts. Sitting in the room surrounded by the bizarre and gargantuan costumery, I asked Brockie what keeps them going after 27 years. “Definitely the fact that we’re still masters of our own destiny. I think Gwar has unlimited street cred… we’re probably the most vigorous, long-lasting underground band in history. We’re close enough to the 30th anniversary now that we’re like, well, we gotta stick it out that far at least,” he said with a grin. The front man, and longestlasting character in the band, is also knowledgeable on the matter of politics. And, I knew that, true to any Gwar show, there would be at least one political parody among that night’s theatrics. With the recent election just two days prior, I had to ask if there would be a Mitt Romney in store. “Of course! Both the challenger and the President

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I needed to move into the city to be closer to my job, but finding a reasonably priced apartment wasn't easy. When I saw an ad in the classified section for a small studio apartment within my price range, I had to go look. After all, I figured how small could it be? Well, wasn't I surprised to find out it was only 240 square feet and that included the bathroom. I didn't have much of a selection so I took the place. Although I'll be saving money, the space is tight. In fact, if you open the refrigerator, you can't get to the bathroom. I'm thinking of just turning the medicine cabinet into a spice rack. I could really use your help with some space-saving ideas until I can find a bigger place.

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘

Carry: For starters, I'd avoid

shopping for groceries in bulk unless you plan on using the extra boxes as furniture. Cash: Doubling your medicine cabinet as a spice rack is quite creative, but could be trouble when you're cooking. Who wants to reach for garlic and accidentally grab the foot powder? Carry: You do deserve a pat on the back for living conservatively.

Fast Facts Expanding

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 11/11/12 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

Many people choose to overextend themselves these days rather than try to save money. Cash: The first place to maximize space is changing your bed. Explore ideas like a Murphy bed that folds away or a futon that can double as living room furniture. Both could help free up some living space. Carry: Then focus on your lighting. Floor and table lamps take up room so try using track lighting. Not only will it save room, but focusing lights on the wall can make a room appear larger. That's very important when you only have 240 square feet. Cash: It also sounds like leav-

ing room for interior doors to swing open may be a problem in your space as well. Since getting a drink out of the refrigerator means you can't get into the bathroom, consider replacing interior doors with curtains. This works especially well for small closets. Carry: If you really want some free space, then avoid collecting clutter. Little things accumulate quickly so keep knick-knacks to a minimum and containerize as much as possible. Small containers fit well in unused areas like under a couch or chair. Cash: Besides, you'll need all the space you can find for the money you're going to save.

It seems people collect more nowadays than ever before. That's probably why there are more than 55,000 self-storage facilities across the U.S., according to the Self Storage Association. Together, these storage units total about 2 billion square feet (72 square miles) of rentable space and generate more than $18.5 billion dollars every year. In fact, it's estimated that one in eleven households rent storage space and that ratio continues to increase. It took the selfstorage industry 25 years to build the first billion square feet, but only 8 years to build the next billion. Now that's a lot of garage space to clean out.

Cramping My Style

Many of us have a story about our first small apartment, but here's one place that can make any other seem like a mansion. At only 62 square feet, this London flat may be the smallest in the world. At less than 8 ft. by 8 ft., it boasts a raised platform bed, bath, dresser and kitchenette, although hardly large enough to hold a dinner party. It's price? Only $247/week. This just goes to show you actually can live in a closet. â&#x20AC;˘



Reader Humor Chores

After college, a few of us girls decided to room together. Since none of us had a full-time job, it was a great way to save money. We all came from modest backgrounds except my friend Cheryl, whose parents have always done everything for her. When we first moved in together, we all sat down to divide up the chores around the house. I started by saying, "I'll clean the bathroom once a week." Another girl chimed in, "I can take out the garbage." We all continued until it came to Cheryl. "What chore would you like to do?" I asked her. After hesitating for a moment, she replied, "I can call my parents and have them pay the rent." (Thanks to Kathy H.)
