Christmas Cards to Raise Money for Art BY KAREN BOSSICK

W

ant a Christmas card that celebrates Hailey’s hometown holidays? You might find what you want in a new holiday card available at four Hailey locations. The card features a photo Chris Syms took of Hailey welder Bob Wiederricks’s giant bicycle in front of Sturtevants in the snow. Background lights are framed in such a way that the bike almost looks as if it’s bedecked with holiday lights. Hailey artist Mark Johnstone helped finance the printing of 500 cards and Hailey Copy and Print discounted its costs. The cards are on sale in Hailey for $2 at Sturtevants, the Hailey Chamber of Commerce, Copy & Print and Sun Summit South. Proceeds will go to benefit public art in Hailey, said Wiederrick. Wiederrick said he already has collected $927 for public art in Hailey by recycling cans. He hopes to exceed $1,000 by the end of the year. People can drop cans off 24 hours a day at a bin outside at 4051 Glenbrook Drive in Hailey’s light industrial tws area.

Free Reading, Tuesday BY KAREN BOSSICK

A

nyone who’s sat around a campfire knows how men like to try to outstorytell one another. That’s the case in Conor McPherson’s play, “The Weir.” Only, in this case, it involves four guys sitting in a rural Irish pub trying to impress a pretty young woman from Dublin, who just moved into a supposedly haunted house, with their ghost and fairy tales. Turns out Valerie has a story of her own—a true story of why she has left Dublin. And this story has a haunting twist. The nexStage Theatre will present a free reading of “The Weir” at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the nexStage Theatre, 120 S. Main St., Ketchum. The play-reading features Andrew Alburger, Charlotte Baker, Scott Creighton, Dawson Howard and Keith Moore. Complementary wine and cookies will be served. The play was first produced in London in 1997 where it received the Olivier Award for Best New Play. “Conor McPherson is an Irish playwright who wrote ‘The Weir’ when he was 27 years old. He’s a riveting playwright—it’s one of the best-written plays I’ve ever read,” said the play-reading’s director, Jon Kane. “The quality of his writing is extraordinary. Each of his characters has a beautifully written monologue, and I don’t think I could find a better cast. We’ll be doing more of his plays. Definitely.” tws

Sun Valley’s iconic Opera House sports the earthy aroma of molasses, nutmeg and other spices under Jones’ care.

“I’ve found Sun Valley’s buildings interesting because there are lots of little details that make each building identifiable.” - Mary Jones STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

M

ary Jones has built between 30 and 50 gingerbread houses for each of the past 25 years. They’ve run the gamut—from edible Victorian houses to Gothic churches with bells that ring. Some have looked like Hansel and Gretel A-frame cottages. Others resemble her clients’ own personal homes. This year, the proprietor of The Chocolate Moose is padding her résumé with something even grander. She’s building the entire Sun Valley Village out of gingerbread. Jones has spent the past two weeks creating Sun Valley’s iconic Red Barn, the duck pond in front of the Sun Valley Lodge, the ice rink, the resort’s two hot pools and 30 other structures out of gingerbread. Sun Valley Resort will have a ribboncutting for the gingerbread village at 1 p.m. Saturday in The Boiler Room in the Sun Valley mall. Homemade donuts, cider, mulled wine and cocoa will be available. The village will be on display throughout the Christmas holiday. “I have not heard of someone making an entire village out of gingerbread,” said John Murcko, Sun Valley’s new director of culinary operations. “I’ve always wanted to do something like this but it’s such an undertaking.”

The village, which covers a 16-by-24foot footprint, will feature the Sun Valley Opera House, Trail Creek Cabin, the Wells Fargo bank, the duck pond, even the Sinclair gas station with its pumps. If all goes as planned, the Snowball Express—the train that brought skiers to Sun Valley in its early days—will go around the village. The train was a gift to Sun Valley General Manager Tim Silva from his children. “As someone who worked in the film industry, I look at everything as props. And I’ve found Sun Valley’s buildings interesting because there are lots of little details that make each building identifiable. I don’t have time to put every little detail into the buildings I’m creating. But I’ll do the best I can,” Jones said. “The most difficult thing is that I have to do the Konditorei and I don’t even know what it will look like since they’re still building it.” The whole process started with aerial views of Sun Valley Village, which Sun Valley’s security guard Randy Long set to scale. Jones then took pictures of each building and made patterns that she used to cut out of some 300 pounds of cookie-like gingerbread that she baked in her Ketchum studio. She glued them together with special icing that sets up like concrete. And she created windows using clear sugar

candy similar to Jolly Ranchers that she crushed and melted. “People pay lots of money for windows like these,” she said, pointing to windows that had tiny bubbles in them. Long and Thane Hendricks, who works in Sun Valley’s food and beverage department, are frosting the ground with 300plus pounds of royal icing made of powdered sugar and egg whites. They’ll dust the rooftops with snow made of powdered sugar. Then they’ll position tiny people and trees along Sun Valley’s pathways. “As an urban planner, I’ve done small models before. But nothing like this,” said Long. Jones has gotten a feel for Sun Valley’s famous tradition of undertaking massive building projects in extraordinary short periods of time—a tradition that began with the building of the Sun Valley Lodge in 1936 and has continued under Earl and Carol Holding. “This is right up my alley, but it’s a two-month job and I had just over two weeks to do it,” she said. “I hope that next year we can plan ahead—maybe even start in May—and add Dollar Mountain and Baldy.” As it is, Jones has been working around the clock since the project started. By Sunday, she was getting just three hours of sleep a night. “If I get three hours, I’m good for

rowing up in a city (Budapest), I was definitely a city boy who knew how to get around (I learned by playing hooky.) Worldliness is a big help to the traveler. Far from home, we lose our support system and we need to respond to new challenges and craft an entirely different comfort zone without depending too much on money. It’s not enough to be urbane. A person who can function and survive anywhere on the globe is worldly. Today, I avoid cities by choice, mostly because I hate driving in a fast-paced environment where everyone knows where they’re going except me. Denver is like that. From Rawlins, I got an early start so I could arrive in Denver before its legendary rush hour, an oxymoron in most cities. All went well. Once there, I never had to drive again. I memorized my escape route and got a clean getaway back to Wyoming a few days later. Not everyone likes the wide-open spaces. A friend of mine wouldn’t meet me halfway, so I had to drive to Denver. It turns out she was as uncomfortable in that open country as I was in the city. It boils down to what kind of risk we’re accustomed to. The world is seeded with risk; like bacteria, it’s

everywhere. The risks to life and limb, to health and wealth, are greater in a city. Car insurance rates are higher for urban drivers. Laramie had its Matthew Brady, Denver its Aurora. The drive back to Idaho was easy. There was no weather, and it warmed up. I could pump gas without my hands freezing to the nozzle. There was some weather coming, the high cirrus clouds showed it, and once past Rock Springs, the mackerel skies guaranteed it. The weather forecast said no storm, but to expect some overnight snow in the mountains. What we got was a week of wet weather. If I had one concern, it was that I was driving west, right into the lowering sun, at high speeds in reduced visibility. Not only that, there would be more traffic as I neared Evanston. The sun blazed through the gaps in the layered sky. I used my hand or the visor to block it, peering through a narrowed windshield at 70 mph. As the road began to climb into the Wasatch Mountains, I glanced back, and the rearview mirror showed me a once-in-a-lifetime scene. Behind me, the sky was a solid wall of black. A stretch of snowy mountains, lit rose by the last sun, extended across the field of view, in stark contrast to the gathering gloom behind it. The ribbon

of highway led the eye straight into the scene. The glass of every truck and car shone like diamonds atop the black asphalt. It was a quintessential, all-American moment, a perfect interface between man and nature, every bit as beautiful as a pure piece of wilderness can be, worthy of Walt Whitman or Carl Sandburg. I could not stop to take a picture, and had to accept it as an experience I could never fully share. My frustration was equal to the majesty of the scene. Darkness descended as I approached I-84.

Living Well

Holiday Magic? Be Responsible! Let the traditional Christmas color, green, stand for “earth-friendly” instead of “Ben Franklins” this year! Here are a few early ideas for increasing the first and decreasing the second. If you just have to twinkle, substitute LED holiday lights, which slash 90 percent of the electricity used by the incandescent variety. In addition, LED bulbs last longer and are much cooler, plus they are so bright, you won’t need as many to make a splash. Prices have really gone down since they were first introduced. Don’t throw away your old incandescent strings because some organizations can parlay them into funding. If you stay in touch with old friends primarily through holiday cards, then salvage the tradition, but decrease the paper. Recycled paper cards are the best option if you’re purchasing, but making your own from paper materials in your recycling bin is both fun and economical. For the option with

the least paper and postage, consider e-cards. A quick Internet search for e-mail cards reveals a large list. The funky favorite is jibjab and more traditional is Hallmark or Bluemountain. Think local for your holiday feasting: a little research will reveal Valley sources for locally grown meats and veggies, wine makers, coffee roasters, and we are blessed with great bakers and chefs if you are prone to cooking disasters. Supporting local businesses means less gasoline burned and more money fueling our local economy. The most important holiday tip: Slow down! Linger in the magic of a fresh snowfall, write your name in the window frost, and get nostalgic about the scents of fresh evergreen boughs and gingerbread cookies. Have a question, or want to write your own ERCbeat? Contact the Environmental Resource Center at 208.726.4333 or reduce@ercsv.org. tws

A lot of people think all Christmas trees are the same. But not all Christmas trees are created equal and each species can have different sought-after aesthetic qualities. The kind of tree you pick/cut depends on factors such as what shade of green you want your tree to be, how thick or full you’d like the branches and needles, and how strong of a fragrance you desire. When picking out your tree, first consider the size of the space where you will be putting your tree. You don’t want to put your Christmas tree in an area that would receive direct heat, in order to prevent a fire hazard. In addition, direct heat from the sun can cause overdrying of the tree, which will lead to it dying sooner than expected. After you’ve decided on the placement of the tree, next consider which species you’d like. Although there are over 16 Christmas tree species sold in the U.S., the most common evergreen trees include pine, fir, and spruce. Take the time to research the

different types of trees before settling on one. This will help you determine the longevity of the tree, color, how long the needles will last, attractiveness of form, and how long the tree may retain its pleasing fragrance. After deciding on the type of tree you’re going to cut or purchase, make sure you look for a tree that is healthy. A freshly cut, healthy tree can last longer through the holiday season and its needles won’t dry out and fall off. Look for one that is green, not brown. The needles of pine and spruce trees should bend and not break. They should be hard to pull off the branches. Another way to test the freshness of the tree is to slightly drop and shake the tree. The needles should not drop off. If they do, your tree may be dry and was cut a while ago. A few needles will always drop because trees tend to shed. If you are unsure about the tree you want to purchase or cut, ask the seller for information, or simply keep searching. tws

I could be home in Hailey by 10 o’clock? Traffic was light to nonexistent past Ogden. I was alert and had plenty of energy, so I went for it—13 hours, 775 miles—a personal record. There was one side effect. Once home, I sat slumped in the chair, cracked open a beer, only to find that I was vibrating. My entire torso was idling like the engine I had just shut off. The truck transferred all its vibration to my body. Three hours later, I fell asleep, still feeling the rpm’s. That, too, was a first.

From Humanitarian Efforts to Dancing BY JONATHAN KANE

C

ommunity School junior Lena Perenchio has had a chance to see things that most of us have never seen and it has changed her life. So much so that she has devoted a great deal of her time to helping out in humanitarian efforts. “In sixth grade, I went to Africa,” she said. “My mom is a photographer and she had been there before and she wanted my sister and me to see it. Of course, we did the normal things, like go on a safari, but the real purpose of the trip was to visit an orphanage where we got the chance to work with kids. What I remember most is how joyful they were and how much they loved singing and dancing and how they all had such big hopes and dreams and how much they wanted education. It just made me appreciate so much what I have. It was a female orphanage and basically these were kids from the slums. Most of them had been sexually abused and many were infected with HIV It was really eye-opening because I was the only white person and it was really different to be looked at. But being introduced to that part of the world really matured me. Coming back here made me want to help and do other things for other people, but at first I wasn’t sure what I could do.” The solution was to get as many supplies as possible to them. “Unfortunately, if they don’t have shoes, pencils and paper, uniforms or even sanitary napkins, they can’t go to school. My mom goes to Kenya a lot and I was able to go back two summers ago and we brought with us as much as we could. There is such an incredible mix of animals and nature and the people are just so hopeful and in such good spirits.” During Perenchio’s freshman year she was able to accompany her mother on a humanitar-

ian trip to Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. There they visited as many orphanages as they could. “In that part of the world parents really don’t want their kids to get an education because they are afraid that they will leave the home and never come back. One day-school we visited, based on the arts, worked hard to correct this because at this school they could go home and assist their families. Of all the countries we visited, I liked Cambodia the most. It just felt so familiar and I couldn’t figure it out. I saw the culture and made an instant connection to it.” Perenchio’s goal now is to take the insights she has gained and bring them back to her home community. This would take the form of starting her own not-forprofit that would fund humanitarian efforts. “My eighth-grade project was to study female genital mutilation in Africa and it made me more aware of what was happening there. I decided I would find a way to help children. I want to connect the notfor-profit with school by having speakers come in and talk about what kids could do and help raise awareness on these issues. There is a lot that we can do here and you don’t have to travel to Africa or Cambodia. Volunteer work makes you feel so good. It gives you a chance to help someone, and seeing them happy makes you happy. In the future, I want to study foreign policy and international relations so that I can always be involved.” Back home, Perenchio pursues her first passion—dancing, which she began at three years old. “I stopped for a little bit, but then it became a real focus in my life. My earliest memory was of performing to ‘Walk Like an Egyptian.’ I also remember an early performance where one of the girls never attended rehearsal, so she didn’t know what she was doing, and I pushed her

into place. I really took it very seriously.” Since then, Perenchio has been with the Sun Valley Ballet School, starting at seven years old. “We started with the basics of ballet, like turns, bar warmup and the different steps. I started with my best friend and we started taking classes every day after school. I only have good memories of that time and I stuck with it. I just always liked it and it made me happy because it gave me the chance to express myself.” Perenchio will be performing in “The Nutcracker” this December 7, 8 and 9 where she will be performing a pas de deux with a boy for the first time. “It’s really hard and different because it’s such a challenge, but I really love performing. You work so hard, so it’s really rewarding. You’re nervous before, but it’s such a rush of adrenaline when you go out there. But when the lights come on, you relax and know you can do it.” The same applies to anything this determined young woman tackles. tws Each week, Jonathan Kane will be profiling a local high-school student.

Katie Walton, Ian McKenzie and Traci Otto will compete with a musical number from “Seussical,” which the Wood River High School Drama Department produced last spring. Caroline Scarbrough, Taylinn Lake and Shea Goitiandia will perform an original ensemble pantomime titled “The Forgotten Heart.” The students earned the right to go at the District IV Drama Tournament in Twin Falls last week.

Papoose Club Holiday Bazaar This Weekend FOR THE WEEKLY SUN

T

he Papoose Club, a Wood River Valley non-profit volunteer organization, will kick off the holiday season on the first weekend in December with its 22nd Annual Holiday Bazaar. This perennial favorite holiday shopping extravaganza will be held at Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 2 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. The Holiday Bazaar is an important fundraiser for The Papoose Club, whose mission is to support local youth-oriented groups through fundraising activities and events in the Wood River Valley.

Lunafest Saturday BY KAREN BOSSICK

G

eorgina Terry could have excused herself from learning to bikeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;after all, she had polio as a youth. But, instead, she created the first women-specific bike. Terryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story will be one of several that will be told at LUNAFEST this Saturday. The fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issues will be hosted by Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley at the nexStage Theatre, 120 S. Main St., Ketchum. The festival will feature nine short films by women filmmakers ranging from animation to fictional drama and cover such topics as womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, motherhood, body image, aging, cultural diversity and breaking barriers. One film, for instance, is a coming-of-age piece about young girls at a national training center for gymnasts. Still another piece, focusing on self-expression, documents a woman who tattooed her bald head after losing her hair during chemotherapy. And still another is an animated piece made with timelapse photography that focuses on accepting ourselves and not comparing ourselves to others,

said organizer Mary Fauth. A silent auction featuring such items as a private party at Whiskey Jacquesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a ski vacation at Sun Valley, a grocery shopping spree, two passes to the Sun Valley Wellness Festival and dinner and a play with Company of Foolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,â&#x20AC;? will precede the event at 6:30 p.m. Bid online at lunafestauction. org if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it to the films. There will also be a raffle for a Horizon Fitness T203 Treadmill or EX-79 Elliptical, as well as a Pamper Yourself package featuring a facial, skin care products, pedicure, personal fitness training, shopping gift certificate and beer. Raffle tickets are $5 for one and $20 for five, available at LUNAFEST or from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Hailey Holiday Square. Winners need not be present to win. The films start at 7:30 p.m. Cost: $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors, available at www.lunafest.org/ketchum1201 or Sturtevants in Ketchum. Admission at the door: $20. Proceeds benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley. tws

Portrait of an Icon Still a Great Read 160 Years Later BY JONATHAN KANE

Jon rated this movie

I

must confess, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been a fan of the director Steven Spielbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work and have often scoffed at the notion that he is a great American artist, which to many is pure sacrilege. Corny, pandering and sugar-sweet are the ways that I would describe much of his work. Thankfully, except for one short scene at the beginning of the new film, Lincoln, none of that is present here. Instead, Spielberg has done the impossible by crafting a story about the legislative process which is compelling (no small feat) as well as timely and by creating a portrait of our beloved 16th President that will stand the test of time and will serve as the definitive portrait of the man that will resonate for generations to come. There can be no argument that much of the credit goes to the spectacular performance by Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln, which should earn him his third Oscar for Best Performance, which would be a record. A lot of this film and his interpretation is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning biography, Team of Rivals, by historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. Coming from the backwoods of Kentucky and Illinois, Lincoln only had one year of formal education and the tales of his prodigious intellect, coupled with a down-home folksy manner, are legendary. Carrying the world weariness of a man trying to direct a divided nation

Uncle Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896), Hardback, 637 pages, Publ. 3/20/1852. BY MARGOT VAN HORN

to unity by ending Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest war while grappling with the legislative procedures of ending slavery, Day-Lewis, the Irish actor, nails it completely. Whatever we imagined Lincoln to be, his performance will now be etched forever as our perception. Through a terrific makeup job (it could have been disastrous and sunk the whole project), and superior acting, the great man has come to life in a way that far exceeds any expectations. Great support is given by Sally Fields as the troubled Mary Lincoln, still mourning the death of her son, and a terrific turn by Tommy Lee Jones as the head of the radical wing of Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own party that not only wants to free the slaves, but demands reparations. Also on board is a collection of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great senior character actors resplendent in copious amounts of facial hair. The daunting task of making a movie thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart is the talky legislative process interesting falls to the great playwright Tony Kushner and he does a superb job of handling that delicate tightrope. But it is Spielberg, in the end, that deserves credit for the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success. He has crafted one for the ages. tws

W

hen Abraham Lincoln met Harriet Beecher Stowe at the White House in 1862, he allegedly remarked: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the little woman who wrote the book that started this Great War.â&#x20AC;? Yes, he was talking about the Civil War. Just recently, the new movie, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lincoln,â&#x20AC;? starring the amazing Daniel Day-Lewis, is out in our theaters and, knowing this, I thought that I might read, finally, Uncle Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabin. For, as prolific a reader as I am, this is a book that I had put off reading forever. I was surprised at how modern Stoweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prose was for having written it 160 years ago, and I enjoyed it a lot. The subject matter, of course, is shocking,

looking at the TV. Stowe was one very brave woman to take this route to protest slavery in her era; however, it was the only route a woman could take back then. As an author, she may not be a Dickens, Tolstoy or Austenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;however, she wrote a very powerful book that should be read by every person who loves to read and cares about human nature. Lastly, in regards to the Lincoln movie, there are two good books about him which I really enjoyed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love Is Eternalâ&#x20AC;? by Irving Stone, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Team of Rivals,â&#x20AC;? by Doris Kerns Goodwin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love is Eternalâ&#x20AC;? is really supposed to concentrate on Mary Todd Lincoln, but I felt that the book concentrated on both of them. So, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to good reading and seeing good movies, as well. Give us your feedback at margot6@mindspring.com tws

but we are all aware of it. There has been a lot written about it and great novels have featured the theme of how terrible slavery was, and still is. The characters in this novel will stand out in your mind for a long time to come. Particularly the one of Uncle Tom, and of course weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all heard the scary name of Simon Legree. Uncle Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story is almost Jesus-like. The book is very religious and Christian, which may throw some people off, but whether you are of a religious nature or not, what I liked about it is that it gave some hope as well as talking about the fate of the many slaves who couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach hope.

Holiday Bread 1 C. chopped nuts—any kind that you like. I used almonds.

his is such a delicious quickbread, and it is a breeze to make. A sliced piece comes out looking so colorfully festive and, when you top it with some cream cheese, it’s the best! Actually, this recipe makes me think of my mother, who was from Holland. She would slice a thin piece of this kind of loaf and place it in the middle of two pieces of toasted regular bread that had lots of butter on it and enjoy it that way. Oh well, no different than using leftover turkey, cranberry sauce and leftover turkey dressing as a sandwich filling—which I do love and I bet a lot of you do, too. Holiday Cranberry Bread 1 loaf yields about 12 slices

Ingredients:

928.7139

117 B Honeysuckle St., Bellevue

(liquid) 1 C. sugar 1 Tbsp. grated orange peel (I didn’t have an orange so I used a lemon which turned out just great) 3/4 C. water 1/3 C. orange juice 2 Tbsp. oil 1 egg (dry) 2 C. all-purpose flour 1 ½ tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. salt ½ tsp. baking soda (last add-ins) 1 C. halved fresh or unthawed frozen whole cranberries (I had fresh, which I briefly put in the blender)

Instructions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Pam spray a 9X5 loaf pan (I used a glass one which worked just fine.) In a large bowl, combine the liquid ingredients (I used a whip); blend well. Add dry ingredients (I sifted mine) until moistened. Stir in cranberries and nuts. Pour into greased pan. Bake at 350 for 50 to 60 minutes. (Here in Ketchum, 50 minutes did the trick.) An inserted toothpick in the middle of the loaf should come out clean. Cool 10 minutes at least before removing from pan. Cool totally and try not to eat it all at one sitting. Wrap tightly and store in frige. Hints: No need to use a mixer or beater. Also, you can make three small loaves and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. I haven’t tried freezing it, but I’m sure that would work. Make sure to wrap in plastic wrap to keep the loaf moist when storing in frige or freezing. Bon Appètit!!!

Fungal Meningitis Outbreak and Compounding Understand BY LUKE SNELL

A

ccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been 478 cases of fungal meningitis or related infections as of Nov. 19, 2012. This outbreak stems from the production of contaminated vials of injectable steroid by the New England Compounding Center (NECC), of Framingham, Mass. Tragically, thirty-four people have died. Not surprisingly, many questions have surfaced about the NECC and about the practice of compounding. Rest assured that the mass production and interstate delivery of these drugs by the NECC is drastically different from the traditional, individualized pharmacy compounding performed by my pharmacy, Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Pharmacy, in Hailey, and others like it. Traditional pharmacy compounding that is being done by an estimated 7,500 pharmacies across the U.S. occurs at the request of a doctor for a specific patient when the healthcare needs of that patient canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be met with commercially available

drug products. Compounding may include making a liquid dose for a patient unable to swallow tablets or a healing ointment without an artificial color for an allergic patient. It may include putting a pain medication into a topical form to avoid the gastrointestinal effects associated with the medication, or it may be an individualized hormone regimen in treating symptoms associated with menopause. This practice is known as compounding, and is typically done by a registered and specially trained pharmacist. Compounding pharmacies, like mine, operate under the oversight of the State Board of Pharmacy, the Food and Drug Administration and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Pharmacy compounding does NOT include the scope of operation of the NECC, which included shipping drugs to hundreds of clinics and hospitals across the country without individual prescriptions. This is not pharmacist compounding, it is manufacturing, and it requires licensing and inspection by the FDA, which the â&#x20AC;&#x153;pharmacyâ&#x20AC;? did not have. Manufacturing should

not be allowed under the guise of a pharmacy license. But do not confuse that with true pharmacist compoundingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;crafted medications for individual patients with prescriptions. Manufacturing under the guise of compounding should be shut down, but to eliminate compounding would be devastating to thousands of patients and would only make the meningitis tragedy worse. Perhaps recent history gives the best example of the importance of compounding: The 2009 H1N1 outbreak that left a shortage of liquid Tamiflu was bridged with the help of compounding pharmacies that were able to compound a liquid from the Tamiflu capsules. This allowed countless children to receive their virus-fighting therapy. As are all Americans, I am deeply saddened by the fungal meningitis outbreak. We put so much trust in our healthcare system that when an event like this occurs, it seems we have been mislead. I join with the push to find answers as to how this happened. I am concerned, however, that reaction will be

NAMI: CIT Training

NAMI â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wood River Valley, Inc., an affiliate in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest grassroots mental health organization, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, announces the completion of Crisis Intervention Training of local law enforcement personnel in Bellevue, Hailey and Ketchum. This 40-hour comprehensive training was led by Sergeant Tom Fowers of the Twin Falls County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department and the State of Idaho, Region V â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Health and Welfare Department personnel. Crisis Intervention Training, based on the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;Memphis Model,â&#x20AC;? allows law enforcement to be qualified to respond to emergency situations as they relate to the treatment of individuals with mental illness. Individuals diverted through CIT receive more counseling, medication and other forms of treatment than individuals not diverted. CIT facilitates communication both formally and informally between law enforcement and mental health providers. Overall, Crisis Intervention Training is a community collaborative of first responders, law enforcement, local mental health providers, hospital personnel, legal service providers, etc., that creates a more effective, compassionate and safer approach to interacting with people who are diagnosed with a mental illness.

ow that the political commercials have ceased, Medicare insurance plan advertisements have taken over the airways. You may have noticed that there are Medicare insurance companies offering Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans with a zero to very low monthly premium amount. How is that possible? Do these plans offer comprehensive coverage that is comparable to the original Medicare Part A and B? Medicare Advantage plans are provided by private insurance companies. These are required by law to cover services that are currently covered under the original Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and B (medical insurance); often providing lower out-of-pocket expenses when compared to Part A and B. They may also offer additional services like prescription drug coverage and vision care. Premiums for select Medicare Advantage plans start at $0 per month (not a misprint). This is made possible because the federal government pays the private insurance companies to offer these services to local communities across the United States. Approximately 25 percent of Medicare-eligible individuals are covered by these plans today and that number is growing. In order to qualify for a Medicare Advantage plan, you must currently be enrolled in Medicare Part A and B. You will not need to purchase an additional Medicare supplement plan. A Medicare Advantage plan would take the place of your current Medicare Supplement plan and often your Part D plan. If your Medicare Advantage program is a PPO plan, you can use any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare. This is exactly the same requirement as Medicare Supplement programs. The co-pays may be lower for utilizing doctors and facilities in your plan area. There is also worldwide coverage on these plans. If the plan is an HMO, then you may only use an in-network doctor or facility. At this time, there are no HMO plans available in Blaine County. Insurance companies do not offer these plans in every county. Now until Dec. 7, 2012 is a good time to review your current Medicare coverage to make any plan changes during this year. After December 7, you may have to wait until next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open enrollment period to make a change to your current drug plan or Medicare Advantage plan. You still have time to do an evaluation on your current Medicare insurance. I am offering free insurance consultations to assist people who would like to learn more about Medicare Advantage plans and/or evaluate their current Prescription Drug plan. tws

Seeking Prize Money STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

M

arc Mast saw his dream of establishing Sun Valley as an official Olympic training site for Nordic and Paralympic athletes realized a few weeks ago. Now he wants to start putting legs on that dream. Mast wants to raise prize money that he says would make the Boulder Mountain Tour the first Nordic race in the country with prize money for Paralympians. “Prize money would definitely attract the top Paralympians, as well as retired Paralympians who are still in good shape. More importantly, it would put the Paralympians on equal level with the able-bodied skiers,” he said. Mast said the Boulder Mountain Tour in early February will be Sun Valley’s first official event as a Paralympic provider, along with a 3K prologue, the town sprint, and a para-biathlon competition held during the Sun Valley Nordic Festival. Mast’s goal is to raise prize money for the categories of men,

Sun Valley will host a biathlon competition, in addition to three other race events in late January and early February, as part of its first official events as a training site for Olympians and Paralympians. Marc Mast would like to raise prize money that he says would put Paralympians competing in the Boulder Mountain Tour on more equal footing with able-bodied racers.

kiers and boarders will find an expanded superpipe, a dozen more terrain park features and a skier/boarder cross course designed with family fun in mind on Dollar Mountain this year. The superpipe will be expanded from 18 feet to 22 feet to meet Olympic specifications for Sun Valley athletes training for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, said Jack Sibbach, director of marketing for Sun Valley. The pipe is one of only a few pipes in the country that meet Olympic standards, said Mike Bettera, marketing director for Snow Park Technologies (SPT), which designs state-of-the-art pipes and rail features for ski resorts throughout North America The terrain park also features two dozen new rails, bringing the total number of play features to 76. One new feature resembles a roller coaster on rails, said Mike Fitzpatrick, assistant director of marketing for Sun Valley. And the skier/boarder cross course will be extended and designed to make it more family friendly. Kids and adults can learn to ski or board the new features through special lessons, including Dollar Mountain’s Sunday in the Park. Those who would prefer to watch the high-flying hi-jinks will enjoy the Rev Tour competition in March. The competition ranks just below the popular X-Games, Sibbach said. And collegiate championships will be held on Dollar Mountain March 4 through 9. The tubing park, meanwhile, will be moved from Dollar Mountain to Lower River Run on Bald Mountain to allow for the extension of the family cross. The old halfpipe on Lower Warm Springs has been filled in, which will allow skiers and boarders to make turns below Race Arena again. Two new Adventure Trails have been added to those that were created last year. The Pine Marten Plunge will weed its way through the woods below Seattle Ridge Lodge as skiers make their way to Broadway Avenue. The Deer Hollow Trail will veer off Gun Tower Lane, which ferries skiers to Seattle Ridge. The Red-Headed Woodpecker Trail on Seattle Ridge, the Huckleberry Bear Trail off

Olympic Ridge and The Flume in Frenchman’s Gulch were designed last year with kids in mind. But the narrow trails with lots of dips and twists and turns proved “yeehaw” fun—and challenging—for adults, as well. Skiers and non-skiers alike can enter weekly drawings to ride The Beast—Sun Valley’s state-of-the-art snow groomer. Dennis Harper, a longtime Burley farmer, will lead free snowmaking tours for skiers and boarders, likely on Saturday mornings. New this year: Ski Patrol 101. Skiers and boarders of intermediate level or above are invited to enter a drawing with the winner and a friend getting the opportunity to join the ski patrol at its Friday morning safety meeting. The guests will get to watch the sun come up from the top of Bald Mountain and make first tracks with patrollers as they set up safety fencing and do other tasks necessary to get the mountain open. “We’re not looking for candidates for ski patrol because it takes so much medical training. But it is an exciting opportunity to be around the avalanche dogs and ski patrol,” said Sun Valley Ski Patrol Supervisor Mike Lloyd. The Sun Valley SnowSports School is offering several new classes. Among them, Chaps— for guys who want the experience of Mountain Masters but maybe only for one day a week, said SnowSports Director Alan Patzer. Also new this year: the opportunity to ride the chairlifts up Bald Mountain to ski the backcountry with guides from Sawtooth Mountain Guides. Trips will be offered off Seattle Ridge down into the Greenhorn Gulch area a few miles south of Ketchum, said Ketchum District Ranger Kurt Nelson. The guides are also permitted to take paying guests 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 Lloyd. “If you get hurt back there, you will have to get out of there yourself or rely on Blaine County Search and Rescue to come get you, as our patrollers are busy assuring safety in-bounds.” tws

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, My brother-in-law always has to add his two cents on everything. When my 1988 Toyota Celica blew a head gasket, he told me that I'd be lucky to get someone to tow it away. However, I heard that once a car becomes 25 years old, it's considered a classic and worth a lot more money. So I figure I should get it fixed and then try to sell it for a profit. My musclehead brother-in-law says I'm just wasting my money and that there's no such rule about classic cars. I'd just love to prove him wrong and deflate his ego. Can you guys explain to him that my car will be a classic by next year?

â&#x20AC;˘

â&#x20AC;˘

â&#x20AC;˘

Cash: Unfortunately, the

only things you may be deflating are the tires on your car. Carry: There is no hard-set rule that a car becomes a classic at 25 years old. If that were the case, a lot of people would be buying 24year-old cars and waiting to celebrate at New Years. Cash: In fact, most people can't even agree on how to define "classic". The Classic Car Club of America only considers cars from 1925 to 1948 to be classics. Others consider cars like the 1957

Fast Facts Downsizing

If you thought your economy sedan was small, you should try driving the Peel P50. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, it is the smallest street legal car ever put into production. At a length of only 53 inches long, and a width of just over 3 feet, it's smaller than the average bumper car at a fair. Although manufactured from 1962 to 1965 in the United Kingdom, it was not a big seller. Most drivers found it to be too noisy, unstable and cramped.

Duane â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cashâ&#x20AC;? Holze & Todd â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carryâ&#x20AC;? Holze 11/25/12 ŠThe Classified GuysÂŽ

Modeled to a T Chevy or 1966 Corvette to be classics. Carry: In your case, you're concerned with the car's overall value. Most cars depreciate the day after they are purchased. Their age and normal everyday wear and tear ultimately erode the car's value. In rare cases when there is consumer demand, the value of a car can appreciate as it gets older. Cash: It's difficult for most people to predict which cars will become more valuable over time. For instance, not many expected the Ford "Edsel" to become a classic. It flopped when it was introduced in 1957, but is considered

by many today to be a collector's car. Carry: Although possible, it's unlikely that your 1988 Toyota Celica will ever fall into the "classic" category. You can research the blue book value, but considering it needs a new head gasket and maybe a few other repairs due to its age, it's probably not worth spending money on the car, especially as an investment. Cash: Now if you're still set on proving your brother-in-law wrong, you could wait another 25 years to see if the car appreciates in value. Although by then, his ego may have deflated by itself.

When the automobile was first produced in the 1890's by companies such as Diamler Motors and Peugeot, it had an unbelievable price of $2000 to $3000, a small fortune for that time period. It wasn't until the introduction of the Ford Model T in 1908 that the car became affordable to the masses. Anyone could purchase a Ford for around $950. As Ford honed his assembly line techniques, the car's price dipped as low as $280. Nearly 15,500,000 were sold in the United States alone. â&#x20AC;˘

Reader Humor Men in Blue

A few weeks ago, I met my new neighbor, Ralph. It turns out he's a nut for old cars and actually owns a beautifully restored police cruiser from the 1930's. It was the most unique antique car I had ever seen. How many people do you know own a police cruiser, aside from the police? When I joked with him about the rarity of the car, he told me he knows quite a few people in the area who own antique police cruisers. "That's amazing," I said to him. "Do you guys ever get together?" "Every month," he laughed, "at the donut shop!"

I would like to take a moment to thank Miss Sooz Alfs, Miss Pam Ellsworth and all at Zions Bank in Ketchum for taking the time to put together such a wonderful and honorable Veterans Day display at their branch last week. While I did not get to see it in person I feel it is only right to give credit where credit is most certainly due. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard very little about any other Veterans Day ongoings throughout our community, whose military history runs long and deep. This, to me, is very, very sadâ&#x20AC;Ś Yet, I have faith that with the amazing people at Zions whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seemed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;sparkâ&#x20AC;? the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest and appreciation in our local military history that life may be breathed back in to such an important holiday. I hope that this holiday will no longer â&#x20AC;&#x153;lay quietâ&#x20AC;? in our community. To all at Zions, I pray that your display next year is bigger and better and thank you again for sharing the military history of your loved ones and of all those who came in to the branch to share as well. God Bless! -Maggie Springer
