Papoose Club Holiday Bazaar to Feature 62 Vendors STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
on’t want to spend the holiday season slaving over the oven? No problem. You can choose from a wide selection of homemade cookies of all shapes, colors and flavors this weekend at The Papoose Club Holiday Bazaar. The 23rd annual Papoose Club Holiday Bazaar will be held Saturday and Sunday at Hemingway Elementary School, 111 8th St. West, in Ketchum. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. There’ll be 62 vendors offering unique art, artisanal and handcrafted goods. Among this year’s items: recycled ski-pole chimes, garden metalwork, hand-carved wooden Santas and letter-pressed stationery. The Soup Kitchen will serve homemade chili, chicken tortellini and vegetarian vegetable soups from top-secret Papoose Club recipes, along with other goodies. The Bead Shop will host a children’s craft table. Santa Claus will drop in at 1:30 p.m. Sunday. And The Papoose Club Holiday Raffle will give shoppers the chance to win scores of prizes, from yurt trips to sunglasses, ski passes to spa treats, jewelry to a Baldy ski pass. Proceeds from the Bazaar will help fund The Papoose Club mission, which is to assist non-profit organizations providing educational, cultural and athletic programs for the children of the Wood River Valley.

A PROUD PART OF SUN VALLEY CENTER FOR THE ARTS

ou do lunges up Baldy and pole work running around Dollar Mountain. And you engage in countless boot camps filled with plyometric exercises to be at the top of your game when it comes to skiing or hockey. But you may not be exercising the most important part of your body in your bid to achieve peak performance. The brain may not be a muscle. But it plays perhaps the biggest role of all in making sure your muscles and other body parts work properly to achieve peak efficiency and keep you from injury. “For peak performance, you want the brain and body functioning at its optimal level. If one part is working slowly, it’s like a symphony in which the trombone is playing slower than the other instruments—it doesn’t jive,” said Dr. Maria Maricich. “The cool thing is there are some really simple exercises you can do to correct those imbalances—you don’t even need a bike or other expensive athletic gear.” Maricich will offer a free Injury Prevention Workshop at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Wood River YMCA. The workshop will help participants identify muscle imbalances, neurological efficiency, coordination and structural imbalance. She will also offer brain-balancing exercises that can be done at home to correct problems and help participants improve their athletic performance and safety on the ski slopes and the ice rink. The use of neurology and neuroscience to improve sports performance is fairly new. “Many people know about brain problems leading to Alzheimer’s, dementia, memory loss, even ADD. But not a lot of people know about how it affects injuries and athletic performance,” said Maricich. Maricich used it with her own son when she discovered he had an intentional tremor. He practiced a couple simple exercises, including one in which he made snow angels on the floor. Feeling the sensation of the carpet against his skin engaged his brain, helping to make his
Dr. Maria Maricich shows a simple neurological test that involves moving the hands back and forth as fast as possible.
“…there are some really simple exercises you can do to correct those imbalances — you don’t even need a bike or other expensive athletic gear.” school work easier. He also started skiing better—he even received an invite to take part in a U.S. Ski Team freestyle event later this month. “It definitely made a difference,” said 16-year-old Zac Maricich-Siele. “It made it easier to focus on my schoolwork. And it made it easier to improve in skiing. The exercises weren’t difficult—it was just a matter of remembering to do them. I was happy I did them.”
Working in concert
Muscle or structural imbalances can put more strain on joints and other body parts like the pelvis. When the pelvis is tilted, it can strain the inner knee on the side that’s elevated and the outside of the knee on the side that’s lower. Head, shoulders and hips that are tilted get fatigued trying to hold you in position and can’t rise to the occasion when you hit a mogul the wrong way. A head held too far forward throws the body off and interferes with body awareness. If one quad responds well and the other doesn’t, both are prone to injury. “Think of all the things that have to happen in your body to make a turn on skis—zillions of things you don’t even think about,” Maricich said. “You want to have the one muscle contracting while the other one relaxes. If you don’t, you may not turn as well on one side as the other. The idea is to make it so your nerves work in concert to make things happen to ensure that everything is doing exactly what it needs to do.” Maricich recently conducted a workshop demonstrating some of the things she will deal with on Thursday. Some of the tests were as simple as touching the cheeks to see if one cheek tingled more than the other. Participants covered one eye, then the other, to see if one detected colors more brightly. They examined pupils to determine if one was bigger than the other. And they stood, putting their feet close together, then closed their eyes to see whether they fell to one side or the other. “We’re not testing for strength as much as how the neurological part is responding,” Maricich told participants.

f you add up the “Secret Santa” flurry, the stocking stuffers, hostess gifts, teacher thank-yous, presents for those near and dear (and not so near or dear), it’s a grand total of “stuff” guaranteed to put you in shock, physically, financially and emotionally. This year why not express your love and well wishes in less wasteful ways? Talk to your co-workers, extended family and friends to devise a better plan. Try restricting “Secret Santa” gifts to little things you make yourself. Agree to reduce the amount of money spent or ask folks to buy used goods or to buy experiences instead of things. Re-gifting is OK if you know it’s perfect! Rather than spoiling the joy of Christmas, you may find a great opportunity to think hard about what the holiday means to you—and to have fun dream-
ing up new traditions and new ways of showing appreciation. The most meaningful gifts are often homemade, or involve the offer of services like babysitting. Avoid resource-consumptive gifts (especially from nonrenewable resources) and purchase durable gifts that won’t end up in the landfill. Support locally owned businesses and artisans so the money remains in the community and less energy is spent on transportation. Give a non-disposable gift like play tickets or a membership to a local nonprofit. For wrapping, use reusable bags, newspaper, paper grocery bags or last year’s saved wrapping paper. Keep ribbons for next year and don’t forget to recycle unsalvageable wrapping paper. More Green Community tips at Facebook/ERC Sun Valley. tws
Recycling: an Ongoing Process
n October 2012 Blaine County made several changes to the county recycling program, including moving to a three-bin system and removing curbside glass pick-up from residences (although glass pick-up continues to be available to area businesses). With these changes also came a re-branding of the recycling program, a brand new website, social media, and the need to alert thousands of residents to the expansion of recycling options. So how did we do this? -5B Recycles has a strong online presence with a website dedicated entirely to recycling in Blaine County, something that has never been done locally before. The website, viewed at www.5brecycles.org, is updated regularly with recyclable items and details of outreach events and efforts. We also have an active Facebook page where residents regularly ask questions and receive timely responses to needs about where to recycle the ever increasing list of recyclable items. -5B Recycles works closely with area schools to educate students and teachers about best practices. This year we worked with Hemingway Elementary’s Recycling Club, who wrote and recorded radio commercials, created educational videos, and researched glass collection sites in Ketchum. We’re appreciative of this partnership and the time
teachers make available for their students to meet with us. -One population we continue to reach out to are visitors to our area. We collaborate with property management companies to provide ‘Recycling How-to’s’ to visitors, and work with area visitors centers to make visitors recycling aware. -Festivals, sporting events, art fairs—anywhere there is a crowd that will have us, we’re there! Look for us with our yellow and green booth. We also have an active event recycling program... need bins for an event? Give us a call at 788-5516. -We are appreciative of the partnerships we have with Clear Creek Disposal, Southern Idaho Solid Waste, Blaine County School District, Hilex-Poly, KECH, local cities, and The Weekly Sun—thank you for reading our column each week. Recycling education is an ongoing and ever-changing process. We continue to look for new ways to engage residents, and encourage participation—participation not only in recycling, but in our education effort; participation such as following our Facebook page, purchasing a 5B Recycles T-shirt (view online!), reading our articles, and giving us feedback. We like to hear your ideas. Tell us what is helpful and useful to you. Let us know your thoughts at email@example.com tws

Festival of Trees This Week STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
Holiday Market BY KAREN BOSSICK
Six local bakers and artists kicked off the holiday season with the first bazaar of the season this past weekend at the Kentwood Lodge in Ketchum. Mary Jones rolled out gingerbread versions of The Pioneer Saloon, the Ore Wagon Museum, Despo’s and Veltex. Vincent Carpenter churned out baskets full of gingerbread men and Christmas trees, along with holiday breads. And Merete Abbot, Sue Bridgman, Lisa Horton and Keefer Reynolds paraded out their pears, knit shawls, holiday centerpieces, jewelry and hand-felted hats and scarves. The holiday bazaar action moves this weekend to Hemingway Elementary School in Ketchum where the Papoose Club will hold their annual holiday bazaar. tws

Race Camp Gets Thumbs Up BY KAREN BOSSICK
t was the day before Sun Valley Resort opened Baldy to the public for its 78th ski season. But River Run Lodge was bustling. In the restaurant chefs were finalizing the recipe for their grilled Philadelphia steak sandwich. Outside the kitchen coaches were working with skiers on the recipes for a sterling season. The coaches huddled with their young charges around screens, watching videotape taken earlier in the day on the mountain. Some skiers carved awkward turns that said, “Hey, it’s still early in the season.” Others made turns that looked as if they hadn’t been off their skis all summer long. “Look at that nice swing back. You’re forward, you’re staying in the fall line,” Scotty McGrew told one member of the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation alpine race team. The camp, in its third year, brought teams from Bend, Ore., Jackson, Wyo., Boise and elsewhere for five days of skiing. “It’s been awesome,” said
Blake Harmon, a local kid. “I like skiing, and getting to do it before the season really starts.” “It’s pretty exciting. It helps a lot with the upcoming ski season—it kicks it off in a better, positive way,” said Royce Rheinschild, 15. Coach Joey Cordeau had a group of young freeskiers under his wing. Given early-season conditions, they didn’t have any jumps to go off yet. But they were unperturbed. “The better these guys ski, the better they jump. You can’t ski, you can’t jump,” said Cordeau. “Whoever skis most skis best,” added freestyle skier Wilson Dunn, as he listened to the conversation. Skiers raved about the coverage, even though mild weather had limited the amount of snow Sun Valley could make to College Boulevard, Mid-River Run and Canyon. “I was surprised at the amount of coverage and how good the snow was for this camp. I was blown away,” said Ski Patrolman Eric Demment. Of course, that was before 5 inches of snow served up Monday…. tws

Reflections on Christ’s Nativity this Sunday To help instill the spirit of the season, St. Thomas Episcopal Church and St. Thomas Playhouse will host the beautiful and inspiring service, “Reflections on Christ’s Nativity” at 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8 at St. Thomas Church on Sun Valley Road. All members of the community are invited to ponder the true meaning of Christmas—joyful expectation and celebration along with the gift of Jesus. In addition to Old and New Tes-
tament readings, the service is unique in offering several poetry readings including selections by Gerard Manley Hopkins, Anne Sexton, Emily Dickinson and Donald Hall (Poet Laureate 2007). Christmas music and meditative prayers will be interspersed throughout the service. Immediately after, there will be a reception in the parish hall with food, wine and sparkling cider.
St. Thomas Playhouse is offering a new holiday theatrical program for teens and young adults: the Winter Shakespeare Workshop, a five-day adventurous exploration of Shakespeare’s Troilus & Cressida. The workshop will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Dec. 26-31 at St. Thomas Church on Sun Valley Road. This program is the brainchild of Freddie Harris and Peter Burke. Freddie is a noted Shakespeare and language professional who has also been a drama instructor and directed many theatrical productions in the Valley. Peter, now a Valley res-
ident teaching at the Community School, is a graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Performing Arts. He has been an outstanding instructor, choreographer, dancer, singer and actor with St. Thomas Playhouse for five years. Participants will do a showcase performance of the tragic love story of Troilus and Cressida during the Trojan Wars, while exploring the interplay of Shakespeare’s written language and dance. Partial scholarships are available. To register and get detailed information, call Sara Gorby at 7265349, ext. 16.
Lunafest Follows Female Wrestler, Basketball-Playing Grannies BY KAREN BOSSICK
ne film looks at how a 10-year-old girl deals with the tics related to her Tourette’s syndrome just at an age when kids don’t want to be tagged as different. “First Match” focuses on a 14-year-old girl who is determined to compete in the all-male sport of wrestling while establishing a stronger bond with her father, a former wrestler. “Granny’s Got Game” follows seven fiercely competitive women in their ‘70s who have been playing basketball together for 18 years despite their growing number of physical limitations, in part because of what they’ve come to mean to each other. And “Running Dry” delves into the economic situation in Greece in which a woman struggling to pay her electric bill comes to realize others have even greater needs. These are among nine short films that will be shown Saturday night at LUNAFEST, a film festival hosted by Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum. A reception and silent auction will kick things off at 6:30 p.m. The films will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 for students and seniors and $20 for adults, available in advance at Sturtevants in Ketchum and Hailey and online at girlsontherunwrv. org/lunafest. Tickets are $10 and $25 at the door. New this year: A Red Carpet Reception that costs $50 and includes a reserved seat, wine and beer, and a raffle balloon

valued at $20. Tickets are $60 at the door. The film festival features films by, for and about women. Touching on many subjects, they range from animation to fictional drama to documentaries. “They’re the kind of films that will be of interest to both adults and youth,” said Mary Fauth. Proceeds from the festival will benefit the Breast Cancer Fund and Girls on the Run of the Wood River Valley. In 13 years, the LUNA nutrition bar has raised more than $656,000 for the Breast Cancer Fund and more than $1.25 million for other women’s non-profit organizations. A silent auction will precede the event, along with a reception, at 6:30 p.m. It will feature items from Sturtos of Hailey, Blaine County Title, The Blues Jean Bar, Zenergy Health Club & Spa and others. Bidders can win items from the comfort of their home by bidding at lunafestauction.org. Girls on the Run engaged 70 girls in its program this fall,
including 18 teen-age girls from the Wood River Middle School. It will start up again in late March. The program teaches girls life skills through running and conversation-based lessons. For more information about Girls on the Run, call Mary Fauth at 208-788-7863 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Winning Essay Hailey fifth-grader Anneka Thompson will read her winning essay, “How Girls on the Run has Helped Me Stop Girl-to-Girl Bullying,” during Saturday’s film festival. Thompson won a cruiser bike donated by Sturtos of Hailey for her submission. Thompson wrote that she uses the SBLR strategy—stop, breathe, listen and respond—to try to stop bullying. “One recess a second-grader was bullying another second-grader and I used SBLR and got the kid to stop bullying. The bully was saying, ‘You’re so weird ‘cause you like one Direction.’ I stopped, breathed, listened to my heart and responded… and I made a new friend. That’s why I love Girls on the Run!” tws

It’s White, Well-Covered And ‘Like Skiing On A New York City Sidewalk’ STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
ongratulations! We’re here another year.” So said former speed skiing champion Dick Dorworth as he rose from the seat in River Run Lodge that he commandeers nearly 150 mornings each ski season. “This is my 60th season—I first came here in 1953 as a young ski racer.” Dorworth was among dozens of skiers counting ski-opening anniversaries in quantities of 40, 50 and 60 as they awaited the opening of Sun Valley’s 78th ski season Thursday morning. Dorworth normally skins up and gets in a few runs on the mountain before the opening day. But not this year—he was rock climbing in Greece. “Don’t you feel sorry for me?” he quipped. He turned serious as he glanced at the ribbons of white threading their way down the mountain through slopes of brown sagebrush. “I’m grateful Sun Valley has the good snowmaking it does, even though I disagree with the concept environmentally.” That snowmaking made for a pretty darned good opening to the ski season on a gorgeous day on which skiers could ski a few laps, then go hiking, biking or running before stuffing themselves with turkey. “John went skiing in the morning; then we went golfing. Perfect,” said gallery owner Minette Broschofsky. “I’m happy as long as I’m sliding,” added Mark Helm, who just opened a new dental practice in Ketchum. “This is one of the reasons I moved here. I couldn’t step out of my practice in Beverly Hills and go skiing.” About 2,300 people turned out for opening day at Baldy; a couple hundred slid down Dollar Mountain. There were a good mix of locals, a fair helping of folks from Boise and Twin Falls, and even a sprinkling of people from places like Virginia and Ohio. Lynn Nellis, her husband and their two children came from San Diego to spend Thanksgiving in Sun Valley. They even gob-

Skiers and boarders enjoyed top-to-bottom skiing on Bald Mountain Thursday, despite brown slopes across the valley.
bled a Thanksgiving dinner the night before so dinner wouldn’t get in the way of skiing, although they acknowledged they’d probably scarf down another round of turkey a little later on Thursday. “This is a good place to be, even though we wished there was more snow,” Nellis said, acknowledging that California’s resorts were bare. “There’s a lot of paradise here.” Bob Knoebel was among the first in line, accompanied by a few Hispanic youth he introduced to skiing a few years ago. One is on the ski team this year. “They couldn’t wait, they were so excited to get started skiing,” Knoebel said. “They got me out of bed at six in the morning. And we’ll be the last off the mountain.” Skiing on Upper College, Lower College, mid-River Run, Roundhouse Slope and Upper and Lower Canyon was firm the first run of the morning. But it loosened up with each subsequent run.
Those who took the Lookout Express back to the top of the mountain found themselves facing one of those rarities—a five-minute wait line. And the number of skiers grew as the morning progressed until Baldy resembled skiing on a New York sidewalk, said Dr. Maria Maricich. “We were skiing underneath the chairlift last year,” noted Kenny Ward, recalling the 4 feet of powder that greeted skiers on top of the mountain last Thanksgiving Day. “My daughter grew a pumpkin this summer—probably the first pumpkin ever grown in East Fork,” Delmar Hart responded. “That’s how the season’s gone.” Powder or no, Ward was enthusiastic about the day’s skiing. “It feels as if I never left. It’s like the best run of last season,” he said. “And it’s only going to get better,” Hart told him. tws
Sun Valley’s Brass Ranch will showcase this year’s Bogner ski fashions from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday in the Sun Valley Mall. Ten percent of the sales will go to the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Gold Team made of up elite athletes aspiring to go to the Olympics. Refreshments will be available.
Be a Weather Spotter
An informative session about weather spotting which includes the proper training needed to become an official National Weather Service spotter is coming to the Wood River Valley from 10 to 11 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 6 in the Minnie Moore Rooms (301-302) at the Community Campus in Hailey. Vernon Preston, warning coordination meteorologist, will conduct the training, which includes definitions and climatology of severe weather, cloud and storm recognition, storm hazards and safety tips, weather reporting procedures, and a review of past severe weather events. Across eastern Idaho, over 850 volunteer weather spotters and cooperative observers have provided valuable weather reports which are fundamental in helping the NWS to protect life and property. Forecasts are often based on observer data, and warnings for severe weather have been issued based on timely, reliable information received from our trained volunteer spotters. Everyone is invited to this training session. If you are a current weather spotter, firefighter, law enforcement specialist, land management employee, emergency services technician, transportation operator, outdoor recreationalist, or just purely a weather enthusiast, this training workshop is for you. For more information about the NWS spotter program, please see http://www.skywarn.org/ or our national severe weather awareness Web page at http://weather.gov/om/ severeweather/index.shtml Please bring a friend or other interested weather enthusiasts.

IT’S Foreverly BY JAMIE CANFIELD, PROGRAM DIRECTOR FOR KSKI-FM/KYZK-FM
orah Jones is no stranger to collaborations; in the past, she has worked with jazz guitarist Charlie Hunter, rapper Wyclef Jean and, more recently, her half-sister, Anoushka Shankar. Now, she’s teamed up with an unlikely partner; Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day. No, Norah hasn’t decided to sport a mohawk and punk it up. On the contrary, the duo have stripped it down and gone back to the Everly Brothers’ catalogue to pay tribute to one of rock music’s first roots albums, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us on the duo’s new release Foreverly. The Everly Brothers were known for songs like “Wake Up Little Susie,” “All I Have To Do Is Dream” and “When Will I Be Loved,” but they were wellschooled in the ways of roots music by their guitar-playing father Ike which then in turn inspired The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and others. Now, a new generation has picked up on the Everlys’ sound and Billie Joe and Norah have lovingly covered
the dozen songs from Songs Our Daddy Taught Us and given it a modern edge, but not to the point where they’ve polished it beyond recognition. It’s not extraordinary to hear Norah playing country-tinged songs; she’s done it twice with her side project, The Little Willies. But, strangely enough, Billie Joe is perfectly suited for the Everlys. He harmonizes flawlessly with his partner, and it all seems so natural and organic. I found myself grinning from ear to ear with each song. You will, too. tws
Old Guys Just Wanna Have Fun By Jonathan Kane
kay—let’s face it, expectations were pretty low for the new comedy Last Vegas. After all, hadn’t the trailer pretty much told the whole story — a Hangover for Old Guys with a lot of cliché jokes. But, surprise surprise — the movie is really good and not just because it boasts a cast of five Oscar winners but because it is downright really entertaining and can you ever ask for more for your hardearned entertainment dollars? The story follows four childhood friends, now pushing 70, as they go on a Las Vegas vacation for the wedding of the richest of the group – Michael Douglas to a thirty-year-old. The other three just happen to be Robert De Niro, still mourning the loss of his wife, Morgan Freeman, who is trapped in his son’s house following a stroke, and Kevin Kline battling depression as a Florida retiree. One funny subplot is that Kline’s wife
Jennifer Simpson Joins Chamber
Jennifer Simpson, of Hailey, joined the Hailey Chamber of Commerce on Nov. 25 as the chamber administrator. Simpson is a graduate of Western Illinois University, with a bachelor of arts degree in public communications and human relations. Simpson has received many awards in business, such as being named one of the “Top 20 Under-40” in her hometown community of Muscatine, Iowa. Simpson also has a long history of working with non-profit organizations such as the Salvation Army, United Way, Lions Club, Snow Sports Outreach Society, and Kiwanis. She has joined the Chamber with over six years of self-employment experience, and looks forward to providing support to local small businesses here. Simpson enjoys spending her free time with her family on and off the mountain, and participating in many recreational activities that the area has to offer.
Jon rated this movie
has given him a Viagra and a onetime pass to bring him back to life. Once in Vegas they meet Mary Steenburgen as a lounge singer that sparks romantic interest in both De Niro and the soon-to-be-married Douglas. Freeman just wants to have fun by dancing a little, partying a little and doing some gambling. All four will find the weekend to be an eye-opening adventure and bonding session. The movie is directed admirably by Jon Turtletaub, who lets the heavyweight actors do their thing and work with a really good script by Dan Fogelman. I mean, it’s not Shakespeare, but so what? These actors are not just phoning it in despite what your expectations might be. So go and have a good time. tws

McClain Porter took a few minutes to stretch and let the sun warm him as he and Danny Burke strung lights on the official Hailey Christmas Tree. The tree will be lit on Saturday at the Hailey Holiday Square next to Jane’s Artifacts on Main Street.

Fishing R epoRt THE “WEEKLY” FISHING REPORT FOR DEC. 4 FROM PICABO ANGLER
erpetual fall has finally given way to winter this week. For anglers this simply means a change in clothes, the fishing is a matter of how bad you want it. A few things to keep in mind; Silver Creek is closed from Hwy 20 upstream through the Nature Conservancy. Downstream remains open and when the overcast sets in heavy, the streamer action picks up and can be very good. Non-weighted streamers in neutral colors stripped on a tight line will draw visual strikes from big fish. Anglers can also slowly swing black and purple leeches with little to no striping action. Don’t hesitate to fish shallow and watch the surface closely for the tell-tail sign of a fish chasing your baitfish or leach imitation. Once hooked, give the fish their head or they will pull the hook every time. Fish heavy leaders and tippets. 10 feet tapered to 2X is about right. This is also a great time to fill your nymph box. Picabo Angler is sitting on a huge selection of nymphs and some dries that we’re blowing out at a buck a fly. With the winter Nymphing season upon us it is time to beef up the box. Expect most of the fishing on all our area waters to be mostly subsurface for a while. Small Prince Nymphs and Hares Ears can be deadly fished under and indicator or swung into deep runs. Brassies are also a must have in the box right now. If you go – Be prepared for winter travel with water, dry food, dry clothes, 0 Degree sleeping bag, hand warmers, tire chains and a shovel. Duck hunters on Silver Creek, Magic Reservoir, and Carey Lake are enjoying a fresh push of Northern Ducks and Geese. For the best results, get out and scout your hunt the day before you go. Make sure you take note of where the birds are and where the cover for you and your dog is. Get there early the next day and take your time setting up shop. There is hardly a better day in a person’s life then one spent in a duck blind with a fine sporting dog who doubles as a best friend. Be sure to have an Idaho Hunting License, a Migratory Bird Stamp and your Federal Duck Stamp as well. Upland hunters please be extra careful in the field as winter sets in.

n 1898 Louis de Rougemont began enchanting London audiences with an amazing tale of how he had joined a pearling expedition at age 16, been shipwrecked and washed up on dry land. There he rode on the backs of sea turtles, married an aboriginal woman and become crowned by her tribe. But his story unraveled as newspapermen uncovered what they said was the real truth: That he was Henri Louis Grien, a poor Swiss immigrant to Australia who had served as butler to the lieutenant governor of Western Australia and come to London only after failing at various money-making schemes, including the manufacture of a faulty deep-diving suit. All this serves as the basis for a beguiling evening of theater as Company of Fools presents “Shipwrecked!” by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies. “It’s a blast,” said Jana Arnold. “It’s a great show for Christmas—it’s just fun. And it’s not just a children’s show. It’s for all ages. I can promise you the audience won’t get bored. And neither will we.” As “Shipwrecked!” opens, de Rougemont, played by Adrian Rieder, is out to defend his good name and reputation. To do that, he enlists three actors to retell his story. Arnold plays a dozen largerthan-life characters, including a wombat expert. Andrew Alburger’s roles include that of Queen Victoria, a pirate captain, a 10-year-old boy and a sophisticated reporter. And Suzanne Gray’s representations include the aboriginal woman de Rougemont marries, who tells her story through made-up language and interpretive dance. The actors move from one character to another, from one scene to another, at a rapid clip using multiple dialects and old-fashioned sound effects comprised of a wind machine, thunder stick, bells, whistles and coconuts. The play is set against a backdrop that resembles a Victorian pop-up book inspired by old Victorian postcards that Joe Lavigne found. It’s illustrated

by Hailey sign artist Keith Joe Dick. Costume designer Darrin Pufall has created whimsical costumes that capture de Rougemont’s outlandish adventures. Different scenes will be flashed on a projection screen bringing the book to life. And R.L. Rowsey will play background music similar to that which organists and pianists played to accompany silent movies. It’s not cartoony but brilliantly written, said Director John Glenn. “The play asks, What is true? What is real?” said Glenn. “It delves into hope and joy and the drinking in of life.” “The story asks: Is it the story that’s important or the telling of the story that’s important?” added Alburger. “Does it matter that it was made up when the pleasure of the journey was so powerful? It really is a story about the power of storytelling.” In the final analysis, the play pays homage to the world of theater, honoring the craft of the actor, said Rieder. “And one thing theater can do better than TV or film is tell a simple, round-the-campfire story with old-classic theater techniques, such as turning a trunk into a table, a bed and a raft, to tell the story.”

Kiwanis Seeks Donations for Playground Upgrade
BY KAREN BOSSICK
Lisa Hart took this photo of a Pine Grouse in her front yard.
Creativity Comes First
he Kiwanis Club wants to replace the deteriorating playground equipment at Deerfield Park with new playground equipment, which they hope to install in Spring 2014. Club members hope the community will donate $10,000 to be applied to up to $10,000 in matching funds the club is providing to do that. Contributions of $20 or more will be recognized on a sign set up at the park. Donors can remain anonymous. “Hopefully, we can at least raise $20,000. Even that doesn’t go very far when you’re looking to purchase good quality playground equipment,” said Bob Wiederrick, vice president of the organization.
the way i see it
By Jonathan Kane
or Wood River High School senior Lisa Hart, creativity comes first. An avid sculptor and photographer, the arts are what define Hart and are her great passion in life. “I consider myself to be an artist,” she said, “and I’m very proud of it.” The student, carrying a 3.97 grade point average, has lived here her whole life and was born at the old Moritz Community Hospital in Sun Valley. “It’s been so great growing up here especially because the seasons are so defined – in the winter there is skiing, in the summer you hike, the spring has all the animals and in the fall, the colors. Also, you know everybody and that makes you so comfortable. It’s a homey and tight-knit place where everyone is willing to help each other out. I don’t miss the city because I’m not a shopper and I love a small town and businesses and support them.” Hart says with a laugh, “It would be nice if there was a Chinese Panda Express here but I don’t want to modernize the Valley. It has already changed so much that it will be interesting to see it in 10 years.” Her favorite format as an artist is sculpture and she says she goes through a lot of chicken wire. Most recently, she made a teddy bear out of pine cones. “It’s interesting because I never did it when I was young but really started taking ceramics and studio arts courses in high school.” When asked about her first project, Hart says, “I don’t want to remember it. I made a bowl and a tree but the glazing didn’t work. The grass was textured but the whole thing was a disaster. I still have it as a memento.” As to why she prefers sculpture as a medium to work in, Hart says, “It’s just a great way to express myself. I’m not good with pen and paper so it’s really won-

I derful to use my hands to mold it and make a piece. It just works.” One of her favorite recent pieces is a cedar birdhouse that is so much more. “It’s more comparable to a quilt because it is made out of different types and pieces of wood and it incorporates moss and a sod roof. Grass wouldn’t work so I tried moss but the whole process was very difficult because the different ways I tried to make moss didn’t work. Finally, I just bought moss and incorporated it. The whole thing was really an amazing experiment. I really love science and will try anything to incorporate it into my work. I also love working with glue, maybe because my dad’s a carpenter. I think for this project I probably used a half gallon because I wanted the bark to stick. I do have a tendency to overwork things because I strive for perfection and want to make sure that the final product is indestructible. I used a flashlight on this one to be sure that none of the seams showed to the eye. I don’t want anyone to see the behind-the-scenes work.” You can be sure that what you do see is the product of an excellent effort. tws

But, with matching funds, every dollar raised from recycling cans means $2 for the project.” The Kiwanis Club focuses on children with a softball team, Winter Wonderland and other projects. Its motto: “One child, one community, at a time.” The club meets at 11:30 a.m. Wednesdays at The Senior Connection, 721 3rd Ave. S., in Hailey. Donations can be made to the Kiwanis Playground Project at Mountain West Bank. Aluminum cans can be dropped off at Wiederrick’s welding shop at 4051 Glenbrook Drive in Hailey’s industrial park near Power Engineers. For information, call Wiederrick at 208-720-2438 or 788tws 0018.
The main structure at the park, located at Chestnut Street and East Ridge Drive, was recently removed after 20 years of use because it was deteriorating and considered unsafe. The Kiwanis Club wants to purchase playground equipment similar to that at Old Cutters Park in Hailey. Proposed: A new play structure for 2- to 5-yearolds, a new structure for 5- to 12-year olds, a new swing set and possibly a slide. “We figure Deerfield Park is centrally located in Hailey. It gives kids on the east side of Hailey an alternative to Hop Porter Park,” said Wiederrick. “I’m even diverting the money I make from recycling aluminum cans to this project. It had been slated for public art in Hailey.
f you have declined to take the 3:10 to Yuma this winter you might want to pay attention to these ideas on how to combat the winter weather this season in the Wood River Valley. • Paint all windows black. • Set thermostat at 82 degrees and leave it there until June. • Nail blankets over blackened windows. • Stuff old socks into every open crevice and clogged vents. • Allow all faucets to drip. • Keep oven on at 400 degrees until May. • Leave all burners on stove in the high position. • Boil water every day and night. • Fill bath tub with boiling
water and keep refilling until birds start chirping again. • Drink a hot toddy every hour. • Sleep 18 hours a day. • Wear winter clothes indoors. • Don’t drive but drink heavily indoors. • Have all food delivered. • Mail nothing – use the Internet. • Decline all invitations to go out. • Seal off garage. • Seal off basement. • Duct tape all doors and windows. • Fly off the handle at any occasion to retain a hot head. • Jog in place for 15 minutes of every waking hour. • Replace all light bulbs with heat-lamp bulbs. • Reverse directions of all ceil-
ing fans. • Cover water heater with old sleeping bags. • Put cayenne pepper in your woolen socks. • Sleep on hot rocks and baked potatoes. • Cover bathroom with living room rug. • Light all candles. • Set winter caps on fire. • Place hay bales around the foundation of your house. After you have completed these tasks, Saran wrap the exterior of your home and fit a giant “cozy” around the structure. Place these informative tips on your land line phone, dial “91” and keep your finger on “1.” See you in the spring and… Nice talking to you. tws

WOW We Have Amazing Kids in the Wood River Valley
t’s hard to express how the WOW organization has impacted people in our community. The premise of the program- “engaging students in philanthropy” is brilliant. Last year we beneﬁted from the organization. The ﬁrst graders from Bellevue hosted and served our members an ice cream party after their regular lunchtime program and donated $1650 for future senior services. We also received $3100 from a walk-a-thon put on by the Green Team at the Wood River Middle School. This donation helped to provide over 1200 meals in the Wood River Valley for people that are homebound coping with chronic illness, disability and frailty. The Connection delivers over 20,000 meals a year and donations are the only way we can keep the trucks on the road. What a blessing it is for our community to have this amazing program to educate children early about the impact of giving and how it doesn’t take a lot to enhance or change someone’s life, it just takes someone doing it, putting their thoughts and passions into play and stepping forward.
Every day at The Connection we have the unique opportunity to touch the lives of over 200 people. Knowing that this new generation of children is learning how to help, how to share, how to put themselves out there for someone else is going to impact and shape the future of Blaine County and anywhere else these children go. They are meeting and interacting with the very people their time and donations are impacting; it’s such a unique experience. Many never understand the true nature of giving.
I By starting young we bridge gaps that haven’t been crossed over before by instilling in children charity, giving, compassion and understanding. By educating children, we also help educate their parents and others in the community. I thank Morley and the WOW Foundation for bringing this concept to Blaine County. By helping them, you help many. After speaking with Morley last week I am so anxious to see the new ways that the WOW Foundation is going to impact the community next year.

n my youth, I was blessed to be part of an amazing Boy Scout troop. Our scoutmaster encouraged us to do more for our community through generosity. He taught us that citizenship required effort and to continually look for opportunities to help others. That was a long time ago. Now we are living in the digital age and we are responsible for teaching a whole new generation about generosity and how to practice it in the 21st century. For me WOW is at the very heart of this challenge. By matching our young people with teachers, non-proﬁt organizations, and investors throughout the valley, I see creativity, collaboration, and partnerships developing into generosity across the community in the most inspiring ways. At a time when there is so much negativity, criticism, fear, and change around us WOW is promoting all that can be achieved when we work together. Watching our young people imagine, create, develop and complete their projects has been truly inspiring. To me WOW represents so much of what is right about our community, and why we call this beautiful place our home. GET TO KNOW ‘EM • GET THEIR STATS!

Snow Safety Fest to Include Avy Dog Demos STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
valanche Awareness Week kicks off with a free presentation tonight followed by the annual Snow Safety Festival on Saturday. A free hour-long avalanche awareness presentation will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater at the Community Campus in Hailey. Sawtooth Avalanche Center forecasters will discuss such things as how to avoid avalanches and what to do if someone is buried. This will be followed by a free Snow Safety Festival from 2 to 7 p.m. at the Community School just off Dollar Road in Sun Valley. Local retailers will showcase new snow safety equipment while avalanche experts will demonstrate avalanche dogs in action and engage attendees in drills showing how to use an avalanche beacon to find a fellow skier or snowmobiler buried in the snow. There also will be a demonstration of an airbag blowout. At 4 p.m. avalanche experts from the Sawtooth Avalanche Center, Sun Valley Ski Patrol and Outdoor Leadership Academy will give educational presentations. A social hour with free food and beer will be followed at 6 p.m. by keynote speaker Bruce Tremper, author of “Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain.” The book is considered THE guidebook for understanding avalanches. Outdoor recreationalists need to be wary of recreating in areas scorched in the Beaver Creek Fire last August, said Simon

Those attending Saturday’s Snow Safety Festival will get an opportunity to see how avalanche bags inflate to keep skiers and boarders above the snow.
Trautman of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center, which is based in Ketchum. Slopes that saw intense fire will generally have a higher avalanche danger than others that did not. “I am both excited and apprehensive about how the fire will affect avalanche conditions this winter and in the years to come,” Trautman said. “We will be recreating in a geography that is markedly different than before. Snow accumulation and deposition may vary from what we are used to and familiar and vetted routes may no longer be so familiar. Conversely, we may be able to access terrain we have not been
able to access in the past—terrain that is new, untested and potentially dangerous.” The Snow Safety Festival is sponsored by outdoor sports shops, the Sawtooth Avalanche Center and the Sun Valley Ski Patrol.
Did you know? Only 25 percent of the season’s snowfall fell after Dec. 26 last year. The season ended with a snowpack representing 87 percent of the 30year average, according to the Sawtooth Avalanche Center. To keep track of this year’s avalanche danger, go to sawtooth avalanche.com tws
Sun Valley to Boast Largest Pipe STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
ou can’t see it just yet— there just ain’t enough snow yet. But America’s first destination ski resort will eventually sport North America’s biggest superpipe this winter on Dollar Mountain. The pipe—620 feet long with 22-foot walls—will meet Olympic standards in order to give Sochi hopefuls a place to train. The length fits into Cold Bowl better. And 22-foot walls are easier to ride than shorter walls, said Mike Fitzpatrick, one of Sun Valley’s marketing executives. “The new pipe has a good steep drop-in, unlike a lot of halfpipes, which have a flat drop-in. This lends itself to getting amplitude. That’s why a lot of pipe enthusiasts like to come here,” Fitzpatrick added. As with the past couple of years, most of the changes awaiting this year’s skiers and boarders involve things designed to appeal to the youth. In addition to the larger pipe, Sun Valley’s SnowSports School will introduce a Terrain-Based Learning Program tailored for early learners and intermediate skiers and boarders who want to learn to ski the ever-increasing playground of rails, jumps and other features on Dollar Mountain. The program will utilize features specifically built to help skiers and boarders learn particular skills, such as weighting and unweighting, balancing, edging and body positioning. On Baldy, youngsters—and their parents—will find a new adventure trail on the top left of Warm Springs as you’re standing atop the mountain looking down. The new trail will take skiers down to the I-80 cat track. The tubing hill will move from

Dollar Mountain’s pipe, which seemed plenty big last year, is going to get even bigger this year as Sun Valley crafts the largest super pipe in North America ahead of the Sochi Olympics.
Lower River Run back to Dollar Mountain this year. Sun Valley will offer free rides on the Beast, a state-of-the-art snow cat at 4 p.m. every Thursday, Friday and Saturday as soon as the historic Roundhouse restaurant opens on the mountain. Wanna-be riders can enter a drawing for the rides on a kiosk inside River Run Lodge. And free tours of Sun Valley’s snowmaking will be offered to skiers and riders—probably on Wednesdays and Saturdays, said Jack Sibbach, Sun Valley’s marketing director. Sun Valley attracted more than 380,000 skier visits last year in a year that was not considered a good snow year. It hopes to attract more than 400,000 this year, in part due to a new daily non-stop flight between San Francisco and Sun Valley. The new flight allows San Franciscans to access Sun Valley quicker than Park City, especially when you consider it’s only a 15-minute drive from the Hailey airport to Sun Valley.
A couple new pass options also should attract some skiers. One is a new young Adult Pass, which allows those 29 and younger to ski all season for $999. Skiers and riders holding a full season or Sun Plus pass will also get free skiing at Sugar Bowl Resort near Lake Tahoe, Calif. And Sun Valley Nordic season pass holders will receive free skiing at the Royal Gorge Cross-Country Area near Lake Tahoe.
LIFT TICKETS Baldy lift tickets: Adults—$69 during value season (Nov. 28-Dec. 15 and March 31-end of season); $99, regular season; children—$40 and $60; seniors—$54 and $74. Dollar Mountain lift tickets: Adults—$45 and $60; children, $35 and $45; seniors $37 and $47. Children 4 and under ski free on Dollar Mountain with a paying adult. Discounted half-day lift tickets are also available for both Baldy and Dollar. Information: sunvalley.com or 2086135. For lodging or recreation, call 1-800-322-3432 or 888-622-2108. tws

Light and Fluffy Drop Biscuits BY MARGOT VAN HORN
ere is a biscuit that’s a breeze to make and you’ll be amazed at how light and fluffy it is. They are perfect to serve at a holiday meal and, of course, delicious to accompany soups and stews. They are best eaten at once but if any are left over (which I doubt) you can reheat them in a 300-degree oven for about 10 minutes the next day. They won’t be as light and fluffy but they certainly are good enough to spread a bit of jam or honey on for breakfast. Delicious Drop Biscuits— Totally Light and Fluffy Makes 12 Biscuits Ingredients: 2 C. all-purpose flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. sugar 3/4 tsp. salt 1 C. cold buttermilk (and I use the real thing) 8 Tbsp. unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly (about 5 minutes total). Use the same dish after to melt about 2 more
Tbsp. for brushing the biscuits before baking. Instructions: Place oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 475 degrees. Line a baking sheet (rimmed is best but not totally necessary) with parchment paper. Whisk the dry ingredients (#15) in a large bowl. Combine the buttermilk and 8 Tbsp. melted/cooled butter in a medium bowl. Stir until butter forms small clumps. Add buttermilk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir with a rubber spatula until just incorporated and batter pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Using a greased 1/4-C. dry measuring cup, scoop level amount of batter and drop onto parchment-lined baking sheet. Biscuits should measure about 2 1/4 inches in diameter and 1 1/4 inches high. Space biscuits about 1/2-inch apart. Bake until golden brown and crisp—12 to 14 minutes. Brush biscuit tops with remaining 2 Tbsp. melted butter. Transfer to wire rack and let cool about 5 minutes before serving.
Variations: Black Pepper & Bacon: Cut 6 strips bacon in half lengthwise and then crosswise in 1/4-inch pieces; fry in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp, 5-7 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper-towel-lined plate and cool to room temp. Add crisp bacon and 1 tsp. ground black pepper to flour mixture in step #2. Cheddar and Scallion: Add 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese and 1/4 C. thinly sliced scallions to flour mixture in step #2. Rosemary and Parmesan: Add 3/4 C. grated Parmesan and 1/2 tsp. finely minced rosemary leaves to flour mixture in step #2. tws

Wild Game Stir-Fry by Poo Wright-Pulliam
we pay cash for Quality used ski & Snowboard equipment
1-1 1/2 lbs. wild game stew meat (I like antelope best) 3 Tbsp. cornstarch 3 Tbsp. soy sauce chopped garlic chopped ginger
thin sliced veggies (yellow squash, zucchini, onion, broccoli, carrots—your choice) 1-2 C. beef stock (more meat and veggies = more stock) 2-3 Tbsp. peanut oil rice or egg noodles cooked—your choice.
Stir together cornstarch and soy sauce, add stew meat, mix until covered and set aside. Pour several Tbsp. peanut oil around heated (high) wok, add garlic and ginger and saute until lightly browned. Add coated meat and stir-fry until browned, remove from wok, set aside again (oil and sauce will seem a little burnt but it will cook off during last two steps). Add all veggies and stir-fry until just barely cooked. Add beef stock and cover for 2 minutes (still on high). Remove lid, add meat back in and cook until sauce thickens. Spoon over rice or egg noodles. This recipe makes melt-in-your-mouth wild game; it’s the wok and high temps that do it. Thank you, Poo, for your recipe. Enjoy everyone!

Sun Valley Offers New Taste It’s a Good Time to Review Gifting Treats on the Mountain financial planning
BY WENDELL CAYTON
ith Christmas just around the corner, the issue of gifting often comes up. The most common questions I hear are two; how much, and who pays the taxes? For 2013, an individual may give away an annual exclusion amount of $14,000 of wealth in any form to another. The IRS considers a gift to be “any transfer to an individual, either directly or indirectly, where full consideration (in money or money’s worth) is not received in return.” (Multiple IRS Publications). A married couple can each gift an annual exclusion amount to each person. For example, they could give $28,000 to their son, plus another $28,000 to his spouse if married, plus another $28,000 to each of their grandchildren! Neither the gift giver nor the receiver of the gift receives an income tax deduction for giving, or has reportable taxable income for the receipt of the gift. However, the gift reduces the taxable estate of the giver. But, if the gift giver transfers more than the annual exclusion amount they are required to file a gift tax return, and pay any gift taxes due. Those who receive appreciated property, like shares of stock, have a different tax problem. If they sell the gifted stock, their basis for figuring gain is the cost basis of the prior owner. Certain transfers are excluded from gifts such as amounts less than the annual exclusion. Gifts to pay tuition or medical expenses, providing they are paid directly to the providing institution, do not count. Finally, one can make all the gifts they want to their spouse, free of tax. Gifts to minors come with a few special rules. Donors wishing to give money or property to minors should consider doing so by establishing special minor’s trust accounts better known as Uniform Gift to Minors Act (UGMA) or Uniform Transfers to Minors Act (UTMA). The account is in the child’s name but an adult is
named as custodian. The custodian has the power to pay out of the trust for the child’s benefit, such as education expenses. Parents can contribute up to the annual exclusion limits without triggering mandatory filing of a gift tax return. The immediate tax benefit to the donor is a reduction in the taxable estate of the donor for the amount gifted. Within the trust the first $1,000 per year of investment income is tax-free. The next $1,000 is taxed at the child’s lower tax rate, which would typically be about 5% for most children. Annual investment income in excess of $2,000 is taxed on the parent’s tax return. While these accounts are an excellent way to save for college, keep in mind that accounts in the child’s name can reduce financial aid eligibility. Also, in most states, at the age of majority, the assets belong outright to the child and can no longer be controlled by the custodian. From a practical perspective, gifting is a two edged sword, particularly when the donor is an older parent and the gift receiver is an adult child. In the “Millionaire Next Door” Thomas Stanly, Ph.D. writes extensively about the problems created by gifting to adult children. He notes that such gifting encourages more consumption than savings. Gift receivers have difficulty distinguishing between their wealth and that of their parent. His studies show that gift receivers are likely to be more dependent on credit that are non-receivers. And, receivers of gifts tend to invest much less money than do non-receivers. From his perspective, wealthy parents should be wary of regular gifting to adult children since it tends to weaken the adult child as a financial achiever.

Sun Valley Retools Mountain Food for Eating Adventure BY KAREN BOSSICK
ood on the mountain underwent tremendous changes last year as John Murcko, once named Utah’s best chef, took over. Skiers and boarders will find more changes this year as Murcko and his staff tweak things to better fit the character of the mountain and keep things fresh and exciting for diners. At Seattle Ridge Lodge, the chefs have added a wrap section, featuring everything from tri-tip to turkey. They’ve also expanded the grill selection. Warm Springs has been retooled to better feed the racers and frequent skiing locals it serves. One of Murcko’s favorite changes: The choice of a single, double or triple burger, beginning with a price tag of $7.50. The single-to-triple square patties are offered instead of a larger thicker burger, he said, because they can baste in their own juice, making them that much tastier. Warm Springs will feature a carving station with daily specials from roasted salmon to brisket or prime rib. It’s designed to rope in the skier who skis more than 50 days, Murcko said: “This way they won’t
have the same thing on the menu day in, day out. We’ve also expanded the composed and protein salads since they proved so popular last year.” The restaurant has also retooled some of its prices to appeal to the frequent local skiers who are conscious about expense. Look for the 5B Specials on Sunday: You’ll be able to buy a burger, a pitcher of beer and a plate of wings for $5 each. At The Roundhouse, Averell’s Bar will get its own bar menu. Look for homemade potato chips with a choice of dips and soft German pretzels with seven dips, including spicy cheese and an olive tapenade. There’ll be fondue to which patrons can add things like shrimp and mushrooms. Also, Alpine Dogs in a Blanket—brats wrapped and cut into pieces so friends can share. There’ll be tables seating up to 20 people to encourage more socializing between strangers. And old ski movies will add to the atmosphere. Sun Valley will serve up a six-course New Year’s Eve dinner, as well as Christmas and Christmas Eve dinners in The Roundhouse. There’s already 250 people on the waiting list! River Run Lodge has added a sushi station offering five different rolls sporting everything from baby octopus to vegetables, from smoked trout to a classic tuna roll made out
of fresh tuna air-freighted to the resort. “Sushi plays right into the stomachs of people who are health conscious and looking for low-fat, high-nutrient options,” Murcko said. “We’ve expanded our salad bar offerings. And you’ll find this is the best place to buy a whole pizza because of the oven capacity.” Never fear, though: Cuc Ho is back with his sizzling hot, entertainingly prepared wok dishes… and he has new woks and burners to boot. As for the Lookout Restaurant—yes, for all of you who have been waiting with baited breath— the Taco Bar is back with all its interesting white Mexican sauces and fruit salsas. But you’ll have to pay more for a taco this year—the price climbed all the way from $3 to $3.50! Todd Rubenstein, who handles food and beverage for Sun Valley, is also in charge of entertainment this year. It will feature a broad variety of high-energy music, folk rock and even a Johnny Cash-type singer in there somewhere. There also will be another large outdoor music concert in March with an outside barbecue and pig roast to go with it, Rubenstein promised. Music will be offered from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday at River Run Lodge. It’ll shift to Warm Springs Lodge on Sundays. tws

HOW TO PREVENT INJURIES, from page 1
STORY & PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
S Dr. Maria Maricich tests Cole Rozyla for intentional tremors as his mother looks on.
That darned boss
Imbalances are usually caused by some sort of stress to the body—perhaps a fall 40 years ago, toxins in food or drink, drugs, a concussion, environmental chemicals, even an ill-tempered boss. Exercises can help stimulate weaknesses. So can things like Kinesio tape, which takes the pressure off muscles, or even an eye patch worn for a half-hour each day. Robin Davis and her 14-yearold son Cole Rozyla were among those who took Maricich’s last Injury Prevention Workshop. Davis said the class increased her knowledge and understanding about the mind-body connection. And it was an eye opener for her son, who has suffered some major injuries playing football and other sports. “The workshop made him more receptive to the idea that though his shattered leg healed, it may have created other physical problems that need to be corrected in order to prevent future injuries,” Davis said. “Dr. Maria pointed out how one side of his body is much stronger than the other, along with some other things we were totally unaware of. And she did the same thing for me—I learned I have some physical tweaking to do. Now I need to get my husband to the workshop!” Maricich, a downhill racer
WANT TO KNOW MORE? Dr. Maria Maricich, a Ketchum chiropractor, will offer a free Injury Prevention Workshop at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Wood River YMCA. Though free, those who want to attend are being asked to RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 208726-6010. Attendees are encouraged to bring a partner to perform assessments. But singles are welcome, as well. For nighttime reading, check out neuropsychiatrist Daniel Amen’s “Change your Brain, Change your Life.” Information: Quantum Healing Arts at 208-726-6010.
in the 1984 Olympics, says she wishes she’d known about this sort of thing when she was competing. “I had a tendency to hurt things on my right side—I broke my right collarbone, I had two surgeries on my right knee, I tore the ligaments in my right thumb, I broke my right arm,” she said. “People who have a tendency to injure one side of the body—that’s a brain imbalance. It means the right side is firing better. And brain imbalances mean you can’t react as quickly to prevent injuries. Thankfully, today there is much more information about that sort of thing tws than there was then.”
un Valley Resort is a mere 18 hours away from opening for its 78th winter season. And the kitchen at River Run Lodge is a hubbub of activity. The resort’s head chef John Murcko is adding a touch of cilantro and other spices to a bowl of blood red tuna trying to figure out the perfect recipe for one of the restaurant’s new sushi rolls. His assistant Scott Miskell is tasting a chicken salad that will go into the salad bar, his forehead scrunched as he tries to figure out what’s missing. And the restaurant’s new manager Nick Dennis is busy asking Sun Valley employees, who have been served free food during the restaurant’s trial run, what they think of the new lamb burger, which bursts with tasty luscious red tomatoes, fresh cucumbers, and a white tzatziki-like sauce. “You’re going to see me out in front of the bar all winter asking, ‘Where are you from?’ ‘How do you like your meal?’ That’s my job,” said Dennis, freshly arrived from Chicago where he taught at The Chopping Block and worked at the White Pines Inn. “The Ski Magazine rated us No. 2 last year in the on-mountain food category and that’s completely unacceptable. “My job is to make this the No. 1 place in the country and I can’t do that without talking to the people. My crew—everybody is focused on making us No. 1,” added Dennis, whose family has been coming to Sun Valley long enough that his mother nearly got into fisticuffs with Ernest Hemingway. As the big hand on the clock continues its relentless pace, Murcko makes a tiny cut with a big knife in the yard-long slab of tuna, the blood that spurts out telling him how fresh the tuna is. He cuts off a hunk and mashes it with squirts of soy sauce and hot sauce he acquired in a shopping trip to an Oriental store in Salt Lake City. “You know you’ve got the authentic stuff when you can’t read the label,” he said as he sets down the bottle, which is covered with Asian characters. Satisfied that he’s got the tuna tasting the way he wants it, he offers a taste to David Becker, a new supplier. He spoons a little out on a square of pine green roasted seaweed. Then he lays strips of brightly colored pink watermelon radish, avocado and celery on top. No sooner has he rolled it up than he’s unrolling it, unsatisfied with the final product. But another stab at it will have to wait. One of his assistants is calling him over to taste the new Italian Panini sandwich. And even as he’s mulling what to add to that recipe, the grill chefs are calling on him to help with one of their concoctions. Mountain Manager Peter Stearns sashays over to the counter, holding up an empty plate as if begging one of the chefs to fill it with something, anything. “It’s not right yet,” Murcko tells him before giving him a small spoonful of what appears to be potato or chicken salad, anyway.

Nick Dennis shows off the Lamb Burger with its crispy homemade chips. Dennis has plenty of stories to tell about vintage Sun Valley, including that of his mother skiing with a 9-foot-tall polar bear, even though he just settled in.
“I’m not sure what this is,” Stearns says. “Top secret, I guess.” The mountain food isn’t the only food receiving a makeover this winter. Sun Valley Resort also rolled out a new menu at The Ram Restaurant in Sun Valley Village. Restaurant employees paraded out some of the items on that menu in a soft opening last week: Among them, a scrumptious short rib with sweet potato mash and an apple relish that gave the slightly charred dish an interesting sweetness. King salmon with gnocchi. Lobster and beet mostardo. Butternut bisque spiced with pumpkin seeds and bleu cheese crema. Escargot topped with a tasty camembert garlic shallot. Plump diver scallops nestled in a squash risotto and surrounded by toasted house pancetta. And dinosaur kale with pickled cranberry. Not only is Murcko testing new recipes but he’s training new staff at the same time. Forty percent of the cooks and wait staff are new. That 60 percent are returnees is a good return, in his book. But many of those who returned are taking on new assignments in new restaurants. “We’ll be getting everything and everybody up to speed for weeks to come,” Murcko said. tws

y dear beautiful friend Jill Guinn died of cancer on Nov. 23, just a few short weeks after she was diagnosed. Prior to that she had led a lively, full life. She was coming from Oregon to volunteer to help with the Trailing of the Sheep Festival for the second year. Instead ,the pain she was unwilling to admit existed was becoming more than over-thecounter drugs could help. With great reluctance she canceled her visit. We had another fun and successful festival and called Jill to share the good news, only to learn the pain had driven her to the Emergency Room over the weekend and her life was proclaimed over. Get your affairs in order. She didn’t have much of a chance. The pain that started never ended, and thank God for pain medication and Hospice. Please consider Hospice in your gift-giving this year. We counted ourselves blessed to have seen her twice after the diagnoses. Many friends didn’t get there in time. We made a recording of our last conversation--a conversation among friends discussing this and that and not the elephant in the room. It’s beautiful. I thought of recording voices when I was losing my parents. I just sat a small recorder in the middle of a family card game (my
T h e W e e k ly S u n •
mom was a card-playing fool) and I have a cherished recording of the always-warm banter that flowed back and forth in my family. Now I have another with the same warm banter that flowed back and forth from part of my chosen family to cherish as well (got to get the others). It’s all about love. It’s not merely the recorded voice, but the loving interchange between people enjoying the company of each other, which is often lost in this world of cell phone relationships. I mention this because everyone’s time is short. Don’t wait to tell and show someone you care for them. The time is now. We never know when our time to leave this world will be. Case in point, who knew that my recording would be the last time Jill would have a long enough conversation to record. A day later and we would have missed the keepsake. I loved Jill because she brought alive the teachings of Jesus Christ not by words but, rather, by her everyday actions toward other people which proved out the Lord she served. Kindness, compassion, the first in line to help and also first in line to be taken advantage of because she stood up to help when others wouldn’t. But the thing that set Jill apart from those who profess Jesus as Lord and then support policies that advocate cutting
December 4, 2013
assistance to the poor is that Jill practiced other foundations of the teachings of Jesus Christ; forgiveness against those who wrong you and judge not so you won’t be judged. Jill understood that unforgiveness blocks your prayers and eats at your soul and instead chose to keep helping those who are desperate, knowing the situation might not work out as favorable as she intended. It was a longstanding joke: “Got took again, oh well.” The world is going to miss the kindness and compassion of my friend Jill and so will her friends and her husband Steve but, according to Jesus Christ, those who strive to follow His example as Jill has will have everlasting life. That’s comforting. I expect to again enjoy the company of Jill and others I love who have also accepted Jesus as a way of life during their time on earth. You, too, have been called. Yes, you. Reading this is Jesus calling you yet again. Take the opportunity to gain a helper. Pick up and read the New Testament for basic instruction before leaving earth because, in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. God bless.

Ask the Guys
Dear Classified Guys, As the New Year rolls around, I've made a resolution. However, it's not to lose weight or eat better, as that would take too much commitment. Instead, I've resolved to part with my money and finally get a better car. After 17 years, my trusty old Dodge has seen better days and I am a bit tired of the guys at work razzing me about the puff of smoke it leaves when I pull into the parking lot. Now I know that buying used will save me some big dollars, so I've been watching the classifieds and some of the sales from the dealers. With the New Year coming, I'm seeing a lot of ads for "certified pre-owned" vehicles. It's been a while since I bought a car, but I'm guessing they certify more than just the fact that someone else owned it? What exactly does "certified pre-owned" get me?
Cash: At least you're honest
about your New Year's resolutions. Most of us vow to lose weight or eat better and never make it past the holidays! Carry: A lot of things have changed since you bought your

Dodge. In recent years certified pre-owned vehicles have been a big hit with consumers. Like you, many people realize they can get more car for the money by buying used, yet still have the feeling of driving a newer car. Cash: As you already guessed, certified pre-owned or certifiedused is more than just a guarantee that someone else drove the car before you. The term is used to let consumers know that the car has gone through an inspection process and meets certain criteria before the sale. However, the inspection processes can be very different. Carry: Back in the mid 1990's, dealers started using the term "certified used" as a marketing tool to
sell the cars being returned from leases. Cash: As the popularity of these cars grew, auto manufacturers began offering their own programs. Today, almost every manufacturer has a certified preowned program. Carry: And as you may guess, every certified pre-owned program varies. Each manufacturer has different inspection criteria, age and mileage limitations and warranties. So be sure to do your homework before making any purchase. Cash: Although after 17 years, the guys at work will be quite surprised when you pull up in a new ride. In fact, they may not recognize you without the smoke.
While "certified pre-owned" programs are designed to bring peace of mind to the consumer, it's very important to do your homework. Since there is no industry standard, find out who guarantees the certification. Programs offered by automakers, such as Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, etc., may be very different from those offered by the dealers themselves. For a comparison of certified pre-owned programs, you can visit www.intellichoice.com. Every year they survey the certified used car programs.
Auld Lang Syne
So what's your New Year's resolution? While more than half of the population typically make a resolution, most surveys indicate only a small fraction ever stick to it. According to Money Magazine and the market research firm ICR, there's a new trend. Their survey indicates that about one-third of resolutions involve finances. While 32% of people are planning to save more, 23% want to pay down their debt. Sadly, past surveys found that only 24% of financial resolutions were successful. Maybe it's best if we simply resolve to spend a little, eat a little and enjoy ourselves a whole lot more.

Recently I witnessed an accident that proved how dumb drinking and driving can be. While I was walking my dog, I saw a car go through a stop sign, jump over the curb, run through some hedges and land right into my neighbor's shed. It looked like something right out of the movies. I immediately used my cell phone to call the police. When they arrived, the officer went over to the man who was still in the car. As he approached I overheard him ask, "Sir, have you been drinking tonight?" Still shaking his head, the driver replied, "I must have been. 'Cause I'm not this good of a stunt driver." (Thanks to Samantha P.)
