Cooling off the Liberty By KAREN BOSSICK

I

t questions the assumptions to Al Gore’s Oscar-winning movie, “An Inconvenient Truth.” And it’s playing this Sunday at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey. The movie “Cool It!” will show at 3 p.m. And the film’s producer, Terry Botwick, who also

Bjorn Lomborg.

produced the “Star Trek,” “XMen” and “Wolverine” movies, will be here to participate in a question-and-answer session and a reception afterwards, along with his 1019 Executive Whitney Thomas. The movie, directed by Ondi Timoner, features Bjorn Lomborg, the Danish-born author of “The Skeptical Environmentalist.” An adjunct professor at Copenhagen Business School and former director of the Environmental Assessment Institute in Copenhagen, Lomborg has become a controversial figure, campaigning as he did against the Kyoto Protocol. He doesn’t dispute that

climate change is real and potentially serious. But, as a statistician, he debunks Gore’s projections about polar bear extinction and rising sea levels. And he cautions against what he calls “devastatingly expensive reductions in carbon emissions,” saying we should put our money instead on researching and developing non-carbon-emitting technologies that enable people to switch to cheaper-than-fossilfuel technologies sooner. That is, things like solar, wind, carbon capture, fusion, fission and even technology that would make clouds whiter, to reflect more heat.

or Dakota Barnes, Wood River High School senior, community service is by: JONathan her chance to KANE give back to the community. And she shows it through her devotion to the Girl Scouts and by being a founder of the Key Club at the high school. “This place really has a reputation for nurturing its youth,” she said. Our teachers and mentors here push us to be the best we can be. It’s really gratifying to see I’ve helped someone in the same way.” Born in Hailey, Dakota has lived in the same house her entire life. Before Wood River High School, she attended Wood River Middle School, Hailey Elementary and Bellevue Elementary. “I’ve always liked that it is a close-knit community and that I have so many friends and there are all the outside activities and the great local atmosphere. The downside, of course, is that everyone knows your business, and when the weather is bad, there is not a lot to do and it can get pretty dull sometimes.” She added, “I’ve lived here my whole life and I’m ready for a change. I feel that I want to move to a city really bad. It’s just so much more diverse there. There are a lot of different cultures and there is so much going on with the arts.” Her first choice for college is Seattle University, but she is also looking at Boston College, Boston University, Lewis and Clark, and Whitman. Dakota has had a great experience at Wood River. “It’s evolved into a tremendous school with a lot of opportunities. The teachers really have an enthusiasm for what they do and are always there for their students. The staff and the faculty are also very supportive of the college and interview process and are extremely helpful. It’s also helped a lot that they have expanded the Advanced Placement program. The school’s clubs have also expanded and offer a lot more diversity.” By the time she graduates, Dakota will have completed six A.P. courses – English language and composition, U.S. history, macroeconomics, microeconomics, statistics

Dakota Barnes

and U.S. government. She has also been a recipient of the A.P. Scholars Award. Her favorite subjects are English and history and she hopes to become a lawyer. “English has always been easy for me and I used to write stories when I was younger. Now I’m more interested in journalism and like to analyze global situations. I also love history because I’m interested in the mistakes we’ve made and where we come from. I’m interested in law because debate has always been a strong passion of mine and I like to stand up for what I believe in.” One of the things she believes in is giving back to her community. She is the co-founding president of the Key Club, which works closely with the Kiwanis Club to put on community events and to raise funds for other not-for-profits. Among the activities they have partnered with are The Hunger Coalition, Wagon Days Parade and the Idaho Anti-Meth Project. She is also working for her gold medal in the Congressional Award Program that includes 400 hours of community service. But Dakota is most proud of her involvement with the Girl Scouts, which she has been doing for the last twelve years. She is currently an ambassador, which is the highest grade in Girl Scouts, and she is working on her gold award, which is the equivalent of an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts. “Girl Scouts has been my life outside of school. It deals with self-exploration and developing leadership skills and finding what you want to do. There are so many aspects to it that it’s hard to explain. It’s an organization that empowers women to be active in the community and be influential leaders.” twp

Mark Stasz’s Timeless Portal sculpture

WK$QQXDO )HVWLYDORI7UHHV

By KAREN BOSSICK

B

ellevue sculptor Mark Stasz unveiled a new window onto Hailey Wednesday as nearly three dozen people gathered to dedicate the City of Hailey’s first artwork commissioned under Hailey’s Percent for Art program. Hailey Mayor Rick Davis noted that art has the ability to give identity to a city, much as the Statue of Liberty has done for New York and the Arc de Triomphe for Paris. “We’ve been waiting for this for a very long time—and it’s well worth the wait,� said Jim Spinelli, vice president of the Hailey Arts Commission. “You’re blessed around here with an incredible natural environment, but manmade art is equally important and this work illustrates that,� said Michael Faison, executive director for the Idaho Commission on the Arts. The piece, “Timeless Portal,� takes the shape of a crescent that offers a window onto Carbonate Ridge to motorists driving into Hailey from the south. The 12-foot-by-9-foot sculpture, which sits at the southern end of Roberta McKercher Park, encompasses more than 1,600 pounds of steel jutting up in three tiered arcs. Walnut-colored travertine marble mined near Idaho Falls sits on the other end. A wave at the bottom evokes thoughts of the nearby Big Wood River. “The left side represents the jagged mountains; the travertine on the right embodies the smooth hills and meadows to the east,� said Stasz, who made the piece in his Bellevue studio with the help of Luke Ramsey. “I took my whole life, my son—everything—and stirred it in a cauldron and out it came.� Wednesday’s dedication brought out a number of artists. “It fits the place perfectly,� said Marie Stewart, who has been chosen to do a work for the renovated Hailey rodeo grounds, along with Bill Amaya, Tom Teitge, Ellen Nasvik and Troy Passey. “It blends in with the natural surroundings. It’s got a lot of motion. And I like the combination of manmade with the travertine rock. I don’t think we could’ve gotten a better piece to serve as a window onto Hailey.�

Stasz, a Massachusetts native, moved to the Wood River Valley in 1990 after a sweeping motorcycle ride through the West. He has done 500 steel and stone sculptures since settling here. “I chose the Sun Valley area because it was one of the few towns at the time that offered art that was about more than cowboys and Indians,� said Stasz, who left his work on a 40,000-pound boulder for Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s Ketchum home to attend the dedication. “Gail Severn picked me up in the first three weeks, I sold my first piece through her for $3,000, and I was here to stay. It’s a good place for an artist like me because so many people come here from all over and see my work.� Stasz conceded that the $10,000 he received for the piece covered only about half of what it was worth. But he called it a labor of love: “I was honored to be the first chosen to create a public art piece in the Valley. It’s a piece that’s long overdue.� Donors for the piece included Hailey Public Art Fund, McDonald’s of Hailey, The Village at Hailey Center, Hailey Chamber of Commerce, Hailey Rotary, Hailey Kiwanis, Idaho Commission on the Arts/National Endowment for the Arts, Phil and Ann Puchner, Jim and Shirley Spinelli and Jeff and Gloria Gunter. twp

Nourish the Children event by Delis-Abrams By KAREN BOSSICK

At Aqua Pro Spa and Pool in Hailey, their goal is to provide you with a feeling of relaxation, which now starts before you even walk into their showroom with their new waterfall.

zakk hill

ith Turkey Day just around the corner, many are already plotting how they can stuff themselves and their family and friends. Alexandra Delis-Abrams is simply plotting how she can feed hungry children in the Wood River Valley and Malawi, a southeastern African country with a low life expectancy and high infant mortality. Delis-Abrams has enlisted in Nu Skin’s worldwide effort to Nourish the Children with scientifically-formulated VitaMeal. And she’ll hold an afternoon of fun, including African drumming, Zumba dance, craft activities and a special presentation by R.L. Rowsey’s eighth-grade singers to drum up interest. The event will be held from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday at Light on the Mountains Spiritual Center, three miles south of Ketchum off Highway 75 just north of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden. There will be prizes for those attending and light refreshments, including samples of VitaMeal muffins. Delis-Abrams also plans

to show a video featuring the singer Madonna, who adopted a child from Malawi. All she asks is that those attending show thanks for their blessings by giving healthy, nonperishable packaged foods such as peanut butter and tuna fish that will be distributed to local kids via The Hunger Coalition. Or that they donate $22 to purchase one bag of VitaMeal that will be delivered to malnourished children in Malawi. VitaMeal is a specially-formulated, non-dairy, vegetarian food for malnourished children, who miss out on nutrients they need in the corn and other food typically provided by many humanitarian organizations. VitaMeal, produced by Nu Skin, provides such things as fatty acids required for brain development, skin health and the immune system. Just one bag of VitaMeal provides a child with one healthy meal per day for a month, said Delis-Abrams. “You can essentially save a life for just 73 cents a day,” said Delis-Abrams, a distributor for Nu Skin and a psychologist who has authored two award-winning twp books for children.

Roosevelt to host snow party

A

re you a party animal? If so, it might be good to begin toting around a

ruler. Tom Nickel and The Roosevelt Grille want to throw a party— sooner, rather than later. All it takes for that to happen is landing the first three inches of snow of the season on the ground in town by 3 p.m. When that happens, the blue light will begin flashing on the Roosevelt roof and the party is on by 4 p.m. The party—a benefit for the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation—will include free beer and Champagne and a killer raffle, thanks to Sturtevants, Sun Valley Company, Apple’s Bar & Grill, PK’s Ski and Sports, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., The Sawtooth Club, The Roosevelt Grille and the Sun Valley Ski twp Education Foundation.

briefs Wood River Inn to host Business After Hours

hile it’s fun (for me) to reflect on the umbilical connections beby: BALI SZABO tween the cosmic and the finite, generally, gardening involves getting dirty—it’s a conferred badge of honor. Day in and day out, my involvement is with what’s here, bird in hand, and not what’s in space. As it turns out, sunflowers, especially those that grow here in the West (h. annus), have been to space several times. They are being used, along with other plants, by scientists to determine the consequences of zero gravity to growth, lunar and enclosedspace agriculture. It all began with the Apollo 11 and 12 moon missions. Moon soil samples were returned to Earth under tight quarantine and immediately put into a large Biosafe Level 3 isolation facility in Houston. We wanted to test a variety of life forms’ (36 different plants) reaction to moon dust. The stem cell approach was used. Plant cells were harvested, and grown in a fertile jelly (agar) until there were a mass of cells. Then they were exposed to moon dust. If this process is continued and the cells differentiate, we can clone the plant. Scientists were able to observe, on a molecular level, various chemical reactions. It was proven that the moon’s surface was a sterile environment, with no pathogens. Many cells, especially from sunflowers and tobacco, reacted positively to the exposure. The first step to moon farming was begun in the Apollo years. In 1983 sunflowers returned to space aboard the Columbia space shuttle. Spacelab 1 had been built so scientific experiments could be carried out in space by the astronauts. The complexity of this entire enter-

prise is mind-boggling. I’ll get to the exacting standards and procedures employed by NASA to determine what experiments get priority to be on the shuttle, and more, next week. Darwin discovered a process in plant and root growth that he could not explain—and had little time for—so the observations went untested for over a century. He found that plant shoots grow upward in a tight spiral, and that roots spiral down, something we now call nutation. In zero gravity, would seeds sprout and grow upward? What water/soil weight ratio was needed (same as on Earth, 70/30 is optimum)? The Russians insisted plants could not take up water under these conditions. They were wrong. Would plants placed sideways correct and grow upward? They did. Both sprouted shoots, and seeds were used in these experiments. The nutation was unaffected, the spiraling continued, and orbital gardening was born. As we speak, the effect of gravity—or lack thereof—on living organisms, from seedlings to astronauts, is still in its infancy. twp If you have question or comments, contact Bali at this e-mail: hab4nh@aol.com.

But that’s because the population in hurricane-affected areas has gotten denser. And more polar bears are shot each year than die from climate change, he contends. What makes this documentary a must-see is not his opinions, said Monika Bartyzel, a reviewer at the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s the movie’s insistence on moving beyond the hysteria to think rationally about the issues. “Bringing up the Wright Brothers, he has a point. If it only takes roughly 60 years to evolve from the first attempts at flight to having a man in space, just imagine what research and development could do for the environment,� she added. “The movie is very controversial, but it has a message that’s worth listening to,� said Ketchum developer Jack Bariteau, who is bringing the movie to Hailey. “It offers balance, especially when it comes to looking at how to apply our money to solving the problem.� Bariteau rented out The Liberty Theatre to show the movie because his goddaughter Whitney Thomas works with producer Botwick. The film, which premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival, opened in 400 theaters across the nation on Nov. 12. “Ordinarily, it would be impossible to bring a movie like this here. So what a great opportunity,� Bariteau said. Bariteau plans on donating the net proceeds from the $15 tickets to the Wood River Middle School technology lab and sixthgrade environmental camp. He also has given tickets to students in the science lab. “The whole thing is an opportunity to bring something in during a slower time and stimulate the discussion about climate change and what can be done, what should be done,� he said. “We live in a very unique place. There is a tremendous amount of people who live here because of the quality of life, so we should have a tremendous amount of stake in coming up with good answers.� twp

Stephanie and Josh really want to stay in the Valley. “We love this community,” Stephanie says. “It’s small, it’s special, it’s family.” They cite the incredible accomplishments of so many who live here and who have helped them and others. They want to grow as part of this particular Valley. “We’re not just starting over,” says Josh, “we’re reinventing ourselves.” The couple knows the café will not bring riches and acknowledge wanting a “true home-run,” but they believe in their entrepreneurial talents. “Life is full of opportunities and you just have to capitalize on them,” says Josh. “Stephanie jumped off a cliff without a parachute.

ob Poole endured being trapped in a sandstorm in the African desert so that you could watch elephants migrate across Mali from the comfort of your armchair. The Sun Valley cinematographer is one of a team of photographers, editors and writers who traveled 420,000 miles over three years getting footage for the “Great Migrations” series currently airing on National Geographic TV. Poole shot the migration of wildebeest in the Serengeti, white-eared kob in southern Sudan and elephants in the desert of Mali. Poole, whose work on Yellowstone and other natural phenomenon, has been featured on PBS, endured 125 degrees in the shade, along with sand and dust blowing on him. And he put his life on the line trying to get as close as possible to skittish elephants who could have attacked if they had caught his scent or heard him. “Sometimes you’re in the middle of a great shot and you don’t want to break it and, meanwhile, elephants move a lot faster than they look like they are. So, suddenly, they can be in your midst,” he told USA Today. The series has some amazing footage, including that of an elephant herd cradling the remains of a young elephant who succumbed to searing heat—elephants’ version of a funeral. It shows high-tech tags being attached to Monarch butterflies who use an internal clock and calculate miles to migrate south of the border from North America every year. It features a father zebra leaving his harem to care for his orphaned son. And it boasts some interesting information, such as how animals travel in groups to make it harder for lions to find them and how elephants can sense rain miles before it ever reaches them, enabling them to travel toward it during times of drought. The series will run over the next few weeks on the National Geographic channel. twp

Two of our planetary influences change course on Thursday. First, Jupiter, the jolly planet of luck and abundance, decides to fly straight after being retrograde since July of this year. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Modifications will be necessary. Be careful not to interpret this as a failure on your part. There is nothing wrong with adapting your plans, even adapting them constantly. The important thing is that you keep going. As long as you are making a new plan and getting up and going at it again, you are winning. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Humans need other humans to survive. That’s why one of our most primitive fears is the fear of being separated from our caretakers, whether it’s family, loved ones or society at large. You’ll dance with that fear this week. By Friday, you have new rules about when to be independent and when to reach out. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The mark of a true leader is someone who can lead himself. Your standards are high, and you don’t need anyone else to monitor you and make sure you stay on track. You’ll remain vigilant when all others have backed off. You’ll even test yourself and question how you spend your time. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Your attitude is stellar, and you make money with your winning ways. You know what you have to offer, and you do so very well. You’ll soon be developing and selling a different product, so work the current package with gusto. Then you’ll be able to look back knowing that you did your very best. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Fortune favors you, though not in a “dumb luck” kind of way. You’ll have to work hard to create opportunities. But your rewards will be sweeter for the effort. This week, focus on overcoming your weaknesses -- not all of them at once, though. Create one positive habit at a time, and you will be transformed. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Decide what will make your heart race, and do it. Is it bungee jumping, or calling that intimidating potential date or client? This is not an act you’ll do purely for the momentary adrenaline rush. Rather, it’s a symbolic leap of faith that reminds you of your own vitality and connects you to the essence of who you are.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Life comes with cliffs and chasms -- there’s no getting around it. Sooner or later you’ll need to scale the mountain or jump off the cliff. Even if you lived in a place as flat as Kansas, you would still have tornados to worry about. Since there are no safe guarantees, your willingness to take a risk will come in handy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Relax. There’s nothing to fear, especially when you take into consideration that most of the changes in your life do not happen dramatically. They come through as tiny differences, slow movements and small decisions that build into something through the years. This week, you’ll inch along on your way to improvement. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You love your people, but you also have to admit that they have steered you wrong before -- all that talking they do about what you’d be good at, what you should be doing and what’s out of your league. If you’re going to get this show on the road, you’ll have to ignore some of the noise from the peanut gallery. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You are a note in the song of the universe. Be aware of your ability to pleasantly harmonize with the chord that’s going on around you, or to create tension, interest and conflict with the way you

play along. Both ways are good -- it’s just a choice. It all depends on what kind of music you want to make. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What is the point of traveling if you’re not going to embrace what’s unfamiliar about the new place? When you venture out, you’ll steer clear of the chain restaurants you’re familiar with and the activities you can do just as well at home. Your adventuresome attitude will rub off on those around you. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Are you lacking motivation? Maybe it’s not your fault. Maybe your goal just isn’t compelling. If nothing tantalizes you to take action, go back to the drawing board. Brainstorm about what you really want from this life. Choose a destination that excites you enough to motivate you along the path. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: This year, you’ll publicize your work and attract fans in growing numbers. Your presence will be felt by powerful people who weren’t aware of you before, and by the end of December, you have new ways of making money. Your physical strength will grow in the early part of 2011 as you do what it takes to become healthy. February brings a love connection that inspires a change -perhaps you’ll move or alter your habits. In June, you’ll get a lot of help and build something ambitious. twp

Idling, a harmful habit

T

he weather is changing. People are falling back into a harmful habit: idling their cars and trucks. Letting your engine run pollutes our air and wastes resources, like oil. Believe it or not, if you idle your vehicle for more than 10 seconds, you are not only causing damage to the environment, you are also wasting your own money! The fact is idling is NOT good for your engine. Excessive idling can actually damage your engineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s components: cylinders, spark plugs, exhaust system, including diesel engines. Shutting off and restarting is NOT hard on your engine. The small amount of component wear caused by restarting the engine is money that will be recovered several

times over in fuel savings from reduced idling. Car manufacturers, shipping companies with large fleets, even the Car Talk Guys agree that idling is a waste. Additionally, idling is a health hazard! With the accumulation of vehicles around many schools at drop-off and pick-up times, idling can harm the air quality in school zones, which then can easily injure children and susceptible lungs. Remember to turn your engine off when waiting for your child at school, going to the drive-through, running in for coffee or to the post office, or waiting at the Park & Ride. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a stinker! Got a question or want to draft your own ERCbeat?  Contact the ERC at 726-4333 or erc@ercsv.org

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;And Then There Were Noneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play concludes

briefs Great Composer

By KAREN BOSSICK

ntermissions are proving as much fun as the play itself at Laughing Stock Theatre Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production of â&#x20AC;&#x153;And Then There Were None.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when theater-goers crowd into the lobby and try to figure out whodunit. Director Jamey Reynolds has crafted a fun take on Agatha Christieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s murder mystery of 10 people who gather on an island off the coast of southern England, only to watch each being killed off one by one. Page Klune provides a delightful take on the holier-than-thou marm who suddenly finds herself the target of a murderer. Claire Cassano presents a very engaging portrait of a nanny whose charge died in a drowning accident. Bill Nagel portrays a chillingly calculating judge that you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be caught with near a court bench, let alone a house of horrors. And even reflexologist Mark Cook presents a reasonably forceful portrayal of what must be the shortest general since Napoleon in his stage debut. The play also features Ben Schepps, Doug Neff, Patty Parsons, Rick Hoffman, Ed Clark, Mac Harbaugh and Dean Cerutti. The show continues at 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday with a concluding matinee at 3 p.m. Sunday at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. Tickets: twp $20 at the door.

The Blaine County School District is inviting parents and others to watch the streaming video of the Nov. 9 Board of Trustees meeting.

We are extremely gratified with the work accomplished thus far and wish to once again express our sincere appreciation to all who came together to work on both the strategic plan and the levy committees,â&#x20AC;? said Barber and School Board Chairman Julie Dahlgren.

Steve Wursta will share and talk about his documentary, â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Cheyenne to Pendleton.â&#x20AC;? This film explores the 25-year ride and fall of the Western rodeo cowgirl, including the tragic and avoidable death of Idahoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bonnie McCarroll at the 1929 Pendleton Roundup, and how it was used as an excuse to remove women from the rodeo for good. However, prior to the tragedy, the Rodeo Association of America had already announced that it would be the last year for women to be in the rodeo.

Gunter awarded highest certificate

POST Council Chairman, Chief Dan Weaver and POST Division Administrator, William Flink, will present Chief Jeff Gunter the POST Executive Certificate—the highest certifi- Chief Jeff Gunter cate awarded to peace officers in this state. Chief Gunter started his career in law enforcement in 1989 by helping a friend who was a Bellevue deputy and shortly thereafter joined the Bellevue Marshall’s Office reserve program. In July of 1990, he joined the Blaine County reserve program and decided he wanted to go into law enforcement full time. He applied for an open position with Hailey Police Department and was hired August 1990 as a full time patrol officer. He promoted to sergeant by 1995, and in 1998 he was hired as Chief of Police for the City of Bellevue and where he was also a part time city administrator. He returned to the Hailey Police Department in November of 2000 as a lieutenant and in 2007, was promoted to Chief of Police. “I have great staff who share my vision of being the “best” department in the state, “ says Chief Gunter, “I define “best” as being a well respected police department the community truly supports and is proud of.” In addition to career certification and progressing towards his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, he is also very active in his community with Rotary, Blaine County Drug Coalition, Business After Hours, South Valley Business Alliance, Hailey Chamber of Commerce, Sawtooth Emergency Medical Council, and mentoring with the Blaine County School District’s “lunch buddy” program. The presentation will be held Monday, Nov. 22 at 5:30 p.m. during the City Council Meeting at Hailey City Hall.

BC Rec opens Fitworks Tula’s Salon

T

raci Gaudreau has a new tool to help her take math tests at Blaine County’s by: Karen College of Bossick Southern Idaho. It’s a brand spanking new StairMaster at the Blaine County Recreation District’s FitWorks. The new fitness center at the Community Campus in Hailey opens today with an Open House from 4 to 7 p.m. There’ll be tours, free 30-minute Zumba classes at 5 and 6 p.m., demonstrations by Sun Valley Taekwondo, a bouncy house for youngsters, an opportunity to try out the indoor batting cage and free food samples showing off the new healthy options at the Campus Café. “I can’t wait to use the facility before I take a test,” said Gaudreau, who will get a free membership as a full-time nursing student at CSI. “If you could watch me as I take a test, you’d see that I’m pulling my hair out, I have so much anxiety. Being able to use the StairMaster will help me work off some of that energy before I sit down to the test.” CSI student Barbara Messina agreed: “I used to work out with my Mom at Curves when I was in high school. But now that I’m in college, I can’t afford a membership to a health club and it’s tough to make time in my schedule. Having a gym right here on campus will give me the opportunity to hit the treadmill in between classes.” The Blaine County Recreation District recycled the old Wood River High School locker rooms to create its new 5,500-squarefoot fitness center. “They had the old 1970’s-type vault showers that were optimal for 150 kids trying to shower in a five-minute period. You could put 23 guys under a shower head and get the job done,” said BCRD Director Jim Keating. “We thought: Why not take a space that wasn’t being used and put it to good use as a convenient, affordable, family-friendly fitness facility.” The new FitWorks includes a full gymnasium and fitness studios for fitness, dance, martial arts, spinning, Pilates, boot camp and Zumba classes, and a room full of new strength and cardio machines. And the BCRD is renovating a fenced-in play area for its after-school program to include a small sledding hill, sandbox play area, a play structure made of old telephone poles and a community children’s garden. “Parents can get a workout when they drop their children off for child care or one of the sports leagues,” said Keating. “And the new facility complements our Sportscape with the swimming pool, sand volleyball and bicycle pump track.” The BCRD has shifted its office to the new site, paving the way for such programs as YAK! (Youth Adult Konnections!), cholesterol and blood pressure screenings, nutrition classes and other community programs to

use the old office across the hall. And the café across the hall has revamped its menu to include healthy options, such as yogurt granola parfaits, KB’s burritos, soy milk, vegetables with dip and salmon burgers, along with old standbys like pizza, chicken tenders and churros. The new facility expands the programming options for CSI students, helping them to meet their physical education requirements, said CSI Director Jenny Emery-Davidson. CSI contributed $30,000 of the $340,000 cost of remodeling, enabling its degree-seeking students to have free access to gym equipment, just as students do at the CSI campus in Twin Falls. “FitWorks enhances the notion of a community center with all kinds of healthy options,” said Emery-Davidson. “You can study geometry, get healthy foods and get a workout between classes. You can stretch both mind and twp body.”

saw Holiday decorations at LL Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this weekend. I know its time but it caught me off guard. I love the holidays, always have. But the realization that I had only 40 days until Christmas had me a bit panicked. And I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not the only one. So what happens now? Well, historically I start working more to make extra money. I give up the few minutes a day spent on myself, and start spending hours online trying to find the perfect gift for my nephews who already have everything. I stress that the house wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be decorated right or that the holiday turkey will be too dry. I eat more sugar and caffeine just to keep myself going. I exercise less. I come up with any number of things to stay awake at night thinking about and by the time Christmas comes along Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a mess. Maybe you can relate. So how about we change the tune this year? This year I chose to remember how lucky I am to have a roof over my head and food (dry turkey or no) on my table. This year I will take a long hard look at the family and friends that have put up with me all these years and really appreciate them for how wonderful they really are. This year I choose to acknowledge that while the economy may be down, my attitude and spirit can still be up. This year I will take the time to help out those who are less blessed than I. Okay, panic is goneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;purpose and joy remain. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that what the holidays are supposed to be about? I feel better already. Care to join me? Still stressed? Get moving! Sweat, stretch and get some fresh air. And Pilates class is a great way to keep twp those extra sweets from sticking!

ith New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions about to kick into full swing, one that is relatively easy to accomplish is a quick assessment of your credit health. Having a good credit history is more important than you might realize. Not only does it give you a quick approval for a major purchase like a car, boat or home, it can also be your ticket to getting better interest rates on loans and credit cards, which can help you save money in the long run. It may also be a deciding factor for insurance companies, landlords and potential employers, who can legally view your credit. One of the tools financial institutions like U.S. Bank uses to gauge your creditworthiness is your FICO score. A FICO score is the credit score created by Fair Isaac Corporation. It ranges from 300 to 850, and a higher score tells banks and creditors that you have a positive track record for paying off your debt in a responsible and timely manner. Here are four steps you can take to help give your FICO score a boost in 2011 and beyond: 1. Check your credit report. Recent legislation has allowed for an annual free copy of your credit report from each of the three credit reporting agencies at www. annualcreditreport.com. You can access a report of what information credit agencies have on file for you that is used to determine your FICO score, including what credit accounts you have opened and closed, how many payments youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made, what your balances are on the accounts, and how often you make payments on time. Consider closing those accounts that were only used once for that special discount offer at the store, because having too many in your name may adversely affect your score. Also, check these reports for accuracy each year, and if you do find an error, notify the reporting agencies immediately, along with proof to support your claim. Credit bureaus are bound by law to correct mistakes at no charge. 2. If you need to establish or re-build your credit history, consider opening a credit card account. Maintaining a credit card account in good standing is a great way to build a credit history that shows lenders you are responsible and creditworthy. Young adults 16 or older can begin to build a credit history and learn good money management skills by applying for a card with a parent or responsible adult as co-signer. Or if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some difficulties with maintaining credit in the past, you can get back on track by establishing a secured credit card, with a set credit line equal to an amount held in a savings account. After a period of making positive payments, the savings funds are returned with interest, and a regular credit card issued. 3. Make your credit card and loan payments on time. To err is human, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to accidentally overlook making a payment before the due date from time to time. But there are some easy ways you can avoid this potential FICO score buster. For example, you may want to mark your calendar with a reminder a few days in advance of your monthly due dates for your rent, utility bills and credit card payment dates. Or for an even more low-maintenance method, you can set up automatic payments through online bill pay services so your payments will always be on time. 4. Be proactive if you see financial roadblocks ahead. Borrowing on one debt to pay for another, not keeping track of what has been put on cards, receiving calls or letters from credit agencies, and being denied or cancelled credit are all warning signs that your credit record may be in jeopardy. If you have an unexpected financial hardship such as the loss of a job or major health problems and anticipate that you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to make payments on time, contact your lenders as soon as possible to notify them of the situation. Many times they will be able to work with you on alternative payment plans as long as you are being proactive and up-front with them. Just like your physical health, maintaining good credit health is an ongoing process, and your specific credit health needs will likely change over time. But with a little focus and attention during 2011 and beyond, you can reap financial benefits that will last a lifetime.

Wednesday 11.17.10

Ask the Guys Dear Classified Guys, Two years ago when we moved to the city, I found what I thought was a great 2-bedroom apartment for only $1450/month. It has taken me a while to meet all the neighbors, but I just became friends with a girl from downstairs. At dinner the other night she mentioned that she only pays $600 for her 2-bedroom apt. I almost spilled my wine. How is this possible? Seeing my shock, she told me that hers is a rent-controlled apartment, assuming that explained the whole thing. I'm from the suburbs and have never heard of "rent control". What is it? And more importantly, how do I get it?

• • • Carry: If you're from the suburbs, you probably have a lot to learn about city life. And if you thought the subways were confusing, just wait until you try to keep track of the rent rates. Cash: It's amazing how two apartments that are basically identical can have vastly different rents. Although $1450 for the area you're living in may be quite good, $600 would be a whole lot better! Carry: Rent control is a form of legislation that you may find in

major metropolitan areas like New York or Chicago for instance. It was designed in the early-to-mid 1900's to protect tenants when there were housing shortages and landlords would increase rents almost monthly. Cash: Although today, the original rent-control city of New York still has a lot of disagreement over the effectiveness of rent control. Carry: Some states, such as Massachusetts, have been leaning toward doing away with rent control altogether. Others, like New York, renew the laws to avoid any major objections. Cash: As you can personally attest, rent control can even be upsetting to tenants within the

same building. Carry: Now as informative as all this may be, none of it really helps your situation. So here is what you need to know. Be glad you found an apartment at a reasonable cost. Before the dinner party, you were probably quite happy with your find. Cash: Rent controlled apartments are rarely ever listed for rent and many are converted to non-rent control units after tenants move out. Carry: If you want more information specific to your location, contact your city's housing department. But in the meantime, I'd avoid spilling that wine on your carpet. It could affect your future rent!

Many people today enjoy the benefits of rent control, but few know how it started. It dates back to the early 1900's in New York City. With the influx of immigrants from Europe, landlords continuously increased rents, leading to "rent strikes" among many of the tenants. Laws throughout the 20's and 30's failed to control the situation. In 1943, legislation was passed to regulate rent prices in the city. Today, each state or city maintains it's own regulations for rent control.

Complex

Financial experts suggest that your rent should be no more than one-third of your monthly income. However to be sure, calculate what you can afford BEFORE your rent. Add up all of your monthly expenses, such as car or credit card payments. Include estimates for food and entertainment. Then add in your estimated cost of rent and utilities. If the total is more than your monthly income, then you are living beyond your means and you may need to look for a cheaper place to live. •

As a real estate agent in the city, I get a diverse group of people looking to find a suitable apartment. One gentleman calls me every few years looking for a new place to live. Last week, after only a year, he called me yet again. "It's time to move," he said. Now since I've gotten to know him over the years, I felt comfortable asking, "Jim, why do you want to move again? It must be difficult adjusting to a new place, since you're blind." "It is," he laughed in return. "But I just love the change of scenery!" (Thanks to Jolene G.)

Paws for Hunger, a program in which The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley and The Hunger Coalition provide pet food for needy families, has brought an unexpected benefit for The Hunger Coalition: help in reaching needy families. “It seems to be easier for people to ask for help for their pets than for themselves,” said Jeanne Liston, executive director of The Hunger Coalition. “A major benefit has been that it gives us a chance to check in with them and ask if they need help for themselves.” “We’re finding that it is an incredibly innovative way to reach people who may be reluctant to approach us,” Liston said. “We had not heard of a similar program when Dr. Jo-Anne Dixon, shelter executive director, approached us last year.“ Dixon suggested the program as a way to help families who were giving up their pets because they could not afford to feed them. The Paws for Hunger program is financed by donations to the shelter. Cash donations may be made to the shelter, and unopened containers of pet food can be brought to the shelter or to The Hunger Coalition warehouse at 121 Honeysuckle St., Bellevue. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Kessler in ‘Taste of Atlantic’ By KAREN BOSSICK

I

t’s been described as “Prairie Home Companion meets Def Poetry”—as part poetry slam, part traveling medicine show. The one-of-a-kind, multimedia traveling poetry show fuses music, art, costumes and poetry as the actors and poets explore such questions as “How do we define who we are?” and “Where do we begin to search?” through cuttingedge comedy and tragedy. It’s called “A Taste of Atlantic.” It features Ketchum native and 2005 Wood River High School graduate Maxwell Kessler. And it will be presented at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey as part of a nationwide tour. “It’s a way to trick the audience into coming to a poetry slam,” said Kessler, son of Magic Lantern theatre owner Rick Kessler and Vuarnettes songstress Cherie Kessler. “So often, when you say the word ‘poetry,’ people run and hide. But once we get them to listen to us, they realize this is not the poetry they listened to in high school.” The performance is held together by a storyline of a

traveling troupe that proffers to be selling a magical elixir of the entire Atlantic Ocean in a tiny fish tank. It includes such morsels as this: “When I told my parents I was going vegan, they didn’t say, ‘Good for you.’ They reacted as if I was fashioning myself a pillow out of paperclips. ‘That sounds like a pain. Is it even safe?’ ” Kessler said the Gringo Choir, which is staging the show, had its genesis as a group formed in 2008 to represent Emerson College in a regional collegiate poetry slam at Boston University. The team blazed through the tournament, earning a ticket to the semifinals of the 2009 College Union Poetry Slam Invitational in Albuquerque, N.M., and the 2010 finals. Troupe member Carrie Rudzinski won Best Female Poet there, and Carlos Williams and Steve Subrizi captured a couple of “Best” awards of their own. And, after months of hanging out together writing poems and requests to perform at different venues, the group decided to take their act on the road from Boston to Phoenix, San Francisco to Sun Valley. The Gringo Choir will con-

duct workshops for a half-dozen high school classes while here, hoping to inspire some more young poetry slammers in a movement that is growing in popularity. Poetry slam owes its existence to a Chicago construction worker who began spouting off open mic poetry with an emphasis on performance. If audiences didn’t like what they heard, they could force a poet to leave the stage through finger snapping, foot stomping and verbal exhortations. “It’s very rock and roll, very loud and competitive,” said Kessler, who was named Champion of Champions at the Boston Poetry Slam. “It’s so very fun and that’s what we hope to show people Friday and Saturday night.”

Skies open up in Cosmic Story and Photo By KAREN BOSSICK

T

he Sun Valley Center for the Arts turned otherworldly Friday night as The Center opened its new “Cosmic” exhibition featuring art inspired by the stars and other celestial objects. Kristin Poole and others created celestial hats made of tin foil and handed out “out-of-this-world” drinks like Tang martinis. Partygoers munched hors d’oeuvres of Milky Ways and Starbursts as they studied the art, which includes a series of quilts that chart the position of stars at particular times in history, such as the Battle of Wounded Knee. Teacher Char Roth and a number of children gazed in wonder at part-time resident Charles Lindsay’s ultraviolet-activated sculpture amidst an array of sound and lights. Lindsay, a sound artist and musician, said he found the biomass machine in a biotech junkyard in Maryland and placed a moonlike rock containing tungsten inside. The machine protects viewers from effects of ultraviolet light that would otherwise burn the eyes, he said. Lindsay said he transformed sounds of familiar things, such as water gurgling in the Sawtooth

Mountains and sandhill cranes at Silver Creek, so “you sort of know what they are, but not really.” The sounds were manipulated so viewers will never hear the same sound twice over the next six weeks. “Go in when the gallery is empty and spend time there,” he urged. “I’d love to sleep in that room,” said gallery owner Minette Broschofsky. Jennifer Wood’s “Astronomical” installation will open today at The Center in Hailey. And “Star Talk” host Neil deGrasse Tyson, author of “Death by Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandaries,” will offer his two cents’ worth about the stars above at 6:30 tonight at the Church of the Big Wood.
