A merry little Christmas Celebrates old and new traditions By KAREN BOSSICK


ou can’t walk around Sun Valley these days without hearing the Sun Valley Carolers singing “It Happened in Sun Valley.” And it’s still happening in Sun Valley. After a weekend chock full of rail jams, ski fashion shows and Christmas tree lightings, Sun Valley continues its Christmas week activities. Here are some of the highlights: Tonight—Sun Valley’s longtime Funny Man Mike Murphy will share his latest wry take on the world at 6

tonight in Sun Valley’s Boiler Room. The show is free. Doors open at 5 for those who would like to get a bite to eat and wet their whistle beforehand. Thursday The third annual Classical Christmas Concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. in the Sun Valley Opera House. It will feature two 35- to 45-minute sets and will include complementary coffee, cocoa, tea and truffles. Directed and arranged by R.L. Rowsey, it will feature tenor John Mauldin, soprano Leslie Mauldin and soprano Celena Shafer, a Utah opera singer who has performed throughout the nation and abroad. “John is one of the best-kept vocal secrets in the Valley—and I get to sing with him,” said Rowsey, the mu-

sic director for Company of Fools. This year’s concert will also feature Paul Tillotson, a New York City jazz pianist who came to Sun Valley for two weeks 12 years ago, and extended his stay every year until he decided he loved Sun Valley too much to leave. There will also be a trio of children who will sing “I Wonder as I Wander” with the two professional sopranos. And there will be an appearance by the Sun Valley Carolers. The Hatvani Chamber Ensemble of Boise will accompany the singers. “We’ll play some very familiar standards, such as ‘Silent Night,’ along with ‘Ave Maria,’ and some solo Danny Spangler’s Ice is Nice carved a number of ice sculptures outside the Sun Valley Inn, including this one which features continued, page 15 Christmas ornaments inside the ice.

St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wood River is pleased to announce that Janell Jackson, Dana Ayala and Natalie Perez have earned the Certified Healthcare Access Associate (CHAA) credential. The National Association of Healthcare Access Management established this certification to promote the highest standards of patient access services. Patient access services professionals provide quality services in registration and all of its support processes to patients, providers, and payors through the continuum of care. In order to receive this credential, candidates must meet eligibility requirements and take the CHAA examination. The examination was developed based on a thorough study of the scope of practice and current state of knowledge in patient access services. St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clinicâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Hailey is the first physician clinic in St. Lukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health System where staff members have obtained this certification.

Wood River Dreaming By JIMA RICE

‘Twas the holiday eve and aside the Big Wood the deer and the elk and the antelope stood. Beavers and muskrats raced otters to shore among siskins, bald eagles and widgeons galore.   The new snow lay pillowed, white and serene, as the still shapes of pine trees arched over the scene. Out from their dens came the lumbering bears; the wolves flew before them, outracing their cares.   The bobcat and cougar, the geese and the grouse, raccoons and badgers, a sweet little mouse, sheep with curled horns and goats with long hair, even a lynx, exceedingly rare.   The group circled ‘round, except for the fox, who shivered and whined he’d forgotten his socks. The rabbit hopped forward and turned to the crowd, “I’d like to start,” she bleated quite loud.   “The humans are worried, their world is upset, by war and job losses and mountains of debt.” The crowd murmured softly, they’d felt it all year: people’s sadness and struggle, confusion and fear.   “Mother Earth gives us breath and the simplest of lives,” said the moose.  “We are blessed,” claimed the owl, always wise. The mink skittered forward and called for a prayer; the mouse said, “I’ll do it,” and hopped onto the bear.   With a quiver of pleasure, his head lifted high, the mouse nobly called:  “Mother Earth, Father Sky, and all woodland creatures, we stand in this glen to pray for the two-leggeds, our cousins and friends.   “Give them peace in their hearts and grace in their minds, a love for themselves and for all their own kind. Help them cherish the gifts of their own special ways and honor with pleasure each minute and day.   “Bless their wishes and wants, their dreams for their lives; show them the way to become infinitely wise. Let their future bring mirth and perspective anew, joy and prosperity, and happiness, too.”   “Amen,” said the creatures. They reverently stood, before turning for home in the mountains and woods. “Nature’s blessings,” they whispered, and echoes flew thither, to bring peace, hope, and love to the folks of Wood River.

Bellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story, one of hope From Italy with Love



hen Bella, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Italian terrier,â&#x20AC;? immigrated from Italy to the United States seven years ago, her story made the front page of the Wood River Journal. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not every day that a year-old homeless dog goes from begging outside a ristorante to living in luxury in Sun Valley, Idaho. Now Bellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rescuers have written a book about her story. And sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting pretty good at autograph parties as a result. Bella will show up for yet another autograph party from 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesday at Iconoclast Books in Ketchum. There will be a book reading, perhaps accompanied by a few little woofs, at 4:30 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Italy with Love: A Homeless Italian Street Dog Comes to America,â&#x20AC;? is based on the true story of four Sun Valley women who took a trip to Italy, picking up a little homeless dog as a souvenir. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We stopped at a gas station to ask for directions and we spotted the cutest little dog, but we thought she belonged to the gas station attendant,â&#x20AC;? said Terry Tischer, who wrote the book with Lyn Stallard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get her out of our minds and then we began wondering if she was homeless since she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a collar.â&#x20AC;? The women managed to find their way back to the gas station and, sure enough, the dog was theirs for the asking. They named her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bellaâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Italian for beautiful.

Terry Tischer and Helcia Graf share a moment with Bella and Bellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new autobiography following a book-reading by Page Kluneâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in an Italian accent, no less. Photo: KAREN BOSSICK/TWP

They gave her a bath, fed her, pampered her with toys they picked up at a pet store and then took her on a train trip through Italy. That almost didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen, though, because they accidentally asked for a ticket for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;vacca,â&#x20AC;? which is cow in Italian. Thoroughly smitten with Bella by this time, the group, which included former â&#x20AC;&#x153;Architectural Digestâ&#x20AC;? editor Rosemary Gilman, applied for a visa for Bella. It came a little easier than the train ticket since they used the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;caneâ&#x20AC;? (dog) this time. And soon Bella was in her â&#x20AC;&#x153;new forever homeâ&#x20AC;? with Helcia Graf, the only one who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t own a dog. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good life for a little dog, Tischer and Graf are happy to point out. Bella nibbles on beef burgundy that her new owner, who used to own A Matter of

Taste restaurant, prepares. And she gets lots of waves from tourists as she drives through town wearing red doggles in her ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s red Jeep and yellow doggles in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;69 Jaguar. Tischer said the women wrote the book at the encouragement of others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The story is so unbelievable,â&#x20AC;? they said. And, after a little prodding, Graf, who has painted several commissioned art pieces, did the illustrations. Proceeds from the sale of the book go to the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley. Books will also be donated to 300 children at the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital in Los Angeles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After all, Bella symbolizes hope and love,â&#x20AC;? said Tischer.

A local company out of Jerome called Hilex Poly is going full force with their â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bag 2 Bagâ&#x20AC;? recycling program. With the help of the Environmental Resource Center, every Atkinsonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market now has a bin where you can recycle your plastic bags. Even a seasoned cloth bag user can occasionally collect plastic bags (i.e., produce bags). Most of Los Angeles County has banned plastic bags. They will not be available to shoppers and a paper bag will cost 10 cents. This is great encouragement to bring your own reusable bag. If Los Angeles can do this, so can the Wood River Valley! How does this company recycle these bags? They collect plastic

bags, which are bundled into bales; the bags are washed and processed into pellets. These pellets are used to make brand new bags. This is actually a very simple process in which only a minimal amount of water and energy is used. The facility in Jerome processes all of the local plastic so there is minimal transporting. Hilex Poly accepts any clean plastic bag, such as grocery and produce bags. It is the little things we do that can create change. If we can keep plastic bags out of the landfill, why not recycle them? You have the power: Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Close the loop, locally. Got a question or want to draft your own ERCbeat?

A little homeless dog who gets a visit from Santa on Christmas Eve provides the basis for a fanciful tale written and illustrated by two Sun Valley women. Diane Myerson wrote â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Little Dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christmas Tale.â&#x20AC;? Kim Howard, known for her Scandinavian-inspired artwork, illustrated the 50-page story. Howard will sign copies of the book from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday at the new Chapter One Bookstore in Sun Valley Village. Proceeds go to the Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dianeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first book. An award-winning quiltmaker, painter, grandmother and otherwise-Renaissance woman, she decided it was time to add author to her resumĂŠ. The book is the first in a trilogy. Howard, a longtime animal lover, said she illustrated the book with a 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s style of innocence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cozy book. As they would say in Norwegian, kjempe kosily,â&#x20AC;? she added. twp


Upcoming Book Signings AT CHAPTER ONE BOOKSTORE The pens will continue to fly next week as authors sign their new books at Chapter One Bookstore. Timothy Floyd will sign copies of his new book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aid and Comfort to the Enemy: A Surgeonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s View of the War in Iraqâ&#x20AC;? and his earlier book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yellow Bearâ&#x20AC;? from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday

at the Sun Valley store. Chapter One has been fielding calls about his book from all over the United States, said bookstore owner Cheryl Welch. And former speed skier Dick Dorworth will sign copies of his ski book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Perfect Turn,â&#x20AC;? from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 30 at the Sun Valley

store. The store also plans to hold a book-signing with Katherine Schwarzenegger for her new book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rock What Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Got,â&#x20AC;? during the Christmas holidays. Schwarzenegger is the daughter of the Gov-ernator and Maria Shriver.

a service dog after Bopp was blinded in a mountain biking accident. While Bopp was bedridden in horrendous pain, unable to walk and despairing, Pecos stayed at her side, nuzzling her as if to say, “Please get better.” “When I started to try to walk again, he glued himself to my lower leg, nudging me away from objects I could trip over or stairs I might tumble down,” she said. “He herded me around, always in contact with my leg. He would nudge me away from the stairs. Then, if I seemed determined to go down, he would stand in front of me until I got a good grip on the railing. He adjusted his pace to mine, and he learned to avoid uneven footing where I might stumble.” Walker, a Time magazine photographer since 1979, served as White House photographer during the Reagan, Bush and Clinton administrations. Photographing the dogs was similar to that of photographing presidents and other world leaders, said Walker, who got down on the floor for many of her canine shots even though she was about to have knee surgery. “When you’re photographing presidents, you’re always looking for an attitude in the eye or a touch—something that can

briefs Heli-ski due to open Monday, Dec. 27 Sun Valley Heli Ski Guides will begin operations 10 days earlier than scheduled due to above-average early season snowfall. The first day of operations will be December 27th. A series of large Pacific storms have dropped several feet of fresh snow in the mountains surrounding Sun Valley and produced backcountry conditions that allow for the start of the heli ski season. “Our terrain has received an abundance of high-quality snow over the past several weeks and the backcountry is ready for heli skiing. We are excited to be able to offer heli skiing to Sun Valley visitors over the holidays,”

say Scott Desserault, business manager for Sun Valley Heli Ski. Sun Valley Heli Ski is the oldest heli ski operation in the continental U.S. and is celebrating its 45th year of operation. It operates out of Sun Valley Resort and the Smoky Mountain Lodge—the only fly-in heli ski lodge in the lower 48. In 2008, Sun Valley Heli Ski became part of EpicQuest, which also owns and operates Chugach Powder Guides, Alaska’s largest heli ski provider.

This summer, Perry’s began offering dinner—a place to catch a bowl of soup before a movie or a casual environ for those wanting to enjoy wild Alaskan salmon or baby back ribs with a glass of sparkling Champagne, wine or premium beer without getting dressed up. Perry’s has served the likes of Barbra Streisand and Paul McCartney. And the restaurant has had its share of characters working behind the counter, including Jane McGloin, dubbed “Magoo” because of her similarity to the nearsighted cartoon character. “She wouldn’t tell us how old she was because she was afraid we wouldn’t hire her. But she had to be past 70 when we hired her and she worked for us until she was 88,” Paula recalled. “She knew everyone—people would stop by just to see Magoo and she’d slip them cookies. “She’d call out orders and if someone failed to respond, she’d slam the dish in front of them and say, ‘Aren’t you listening? I’ve been screaming my lungs out!’ ” Perry’s has hired thousands of high school kids—105 one year alone. And it’s hired a number of Peruvians and other Latinos, including Cesar Rivera, the night manager who designed the popular Peruvian wrap from a family recipe. “He’s worked for us five to six days a week for 15 years and he’s never taken a sick day, not even when he broke his ankle,” said Keith of the worker with a Mohawk and earring. “He’s very talented.” Janette Estana, who manages the restaurant during the

Andrew is studying at Penn State and Adrian is at the University of Washington. Estana herself is leaving for college soon after working there for six years. “It’ll be hard—I love the people like family,” she said. The Perrys have been generous in donating gift certificates, pots of Cattlemen’s Chili and baskets of their chocolate chip cookies to various causes ranging from Nappy Neaman’s goatwatching trips for Galena Lodge, to benefits for those with cancer. “I know Keith gets up at 4:30 in the morning to be there by 5,” said Mary Austin Crofts. “And even then he made time to serve

on the Blaine County Recreation District board and other boards, including St. Luke’s. He and Paula just give and give and give.” Neither Keith nor Paula lament the time they’ve put into the restaurant. “When you live in a small community like this, it’s fun to be part of the community,” said Paula. “We’ve gotten to know the people and their kids. We know when someone’s sick. We know when someone’s broken their leg.” “We just feel lucky to be here,” added Keith. “Where else could we run off for a few hours in the middle of the day to play nine holes of golf or cross-country ski? Even though we work a lot, we have a quality of life here we couldn’t have anywhere else.” twp

151 N. Main St. in Hailey

This week brings the winter solstice on December 21, an event that has been celebrated with gatherings, festivals and rituals since ancient times. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solstice is accompanied by the full moon in Gemini and a lunar eclipse. Additionally, Mercury and Jupiter square off. In the best of worlds, this will only serve to add some mischief and suspense to the goings on, making this a holiday week to remember. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some know the history and theory behind everything, from food to architecture to art. As entertaining as you may find this, you also realize that having good taste isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t about knowing the difference between 16th century and 17th century style. Do you know what you like? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all you need to know to have taste. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You will spend most of the week making nice with your constituents. Until this week, you may not have realized that you even have constituents. But it will become clear to you that you are up for election in some manner or form, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to figure out what the voters want from you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). External factors weigh heavily on your experience, but they do not have to have a negative effect. It is your estimation of a thing and not the thing itself that creates a problem for you. You can change the way you measure and grade your experiences in any moment that it benefits you to do so. CANCER (June 22-July 22). You feel like you have to work all the time in order to make more of yourself. But some of the most important work you will do canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be done at your job. Attain a winning attitude and mindset by inspiring yourself. Take the time to

do this. Read about others who have achieved things that mean something to you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You believe that a person who is late is sending a message: My time is more valuable than yours. Because of this belief, it is highly distressing for you to be tardy by even one minute. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work hard to be unfailingly prompt this week. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always possible, but when it is, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be right on time. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). At any given moment, your mind is jampacked with ideas. But when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to think of the next thing to say to someone, suddenly itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing in there. Relax by opening your senses to the moment. The act of observation helps you get out of your own way. Ideas flow to you unimpeded. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a paradox: When you think less, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more brilliant. Even the most learned brain scientist cannot explain why this is. But it has something to do with the fact that intellectual knowledge is only a small part of your entire I.Q. Your wisdom and talent reach into many different areas of life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Pay attention to your energy level throughout the day. By predicting when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel strong and when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need rest, you can design your week with the utmost chance for success. Plan to do difficult tasks when your energy is at a peak. Changing the order of your schedule will help things go more smoothly for you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Part of you wants to calm your mind and heart enough to feel at peace with all those around you. The other part of you feels that this is among the more futile and ridiculous goals one could

ever aim for. As your sign mate Woody Allen said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students achieving Oneness will move on to Twoness.â&#x20AC;? CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You always seem prepared for what happens, even when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way you could have known what was coming. This week, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue to amaze as surprising events occur. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pull out just the perfect tool and manage the events to everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best advantage. To the onlookers, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re simply heroic. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not one to get stuck in a narrow manner of thinking. Therefore, you are open to new experiences. You do not require that they fall strictly into the guidelines of your established values and beliefs. Your principles are strong, but you leave the door open for new ideas to walk in and introduce themselves. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It is becoming more and more clear to you that perfection is not the way to win hearts. Yes, people respect the hard work and attention to detail that you impart. However, there is an intangible something that counts much more than strict adherence to the ideal. That x-factor comes straight from your heart. THIS WEEKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BIRTHDAYS: You live in love and dance with all the various forms love comes in. Romance is your domain through the next six weeks, and you find it in the majesty of nature, in the fantasy world of fiction and also in the beauty of a loved oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes. The new year brings a change in the way you make your money. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy the challenge of forging new relationships and selling your products and attributes to a fresh group of buyers. Family makes you proud in March. August brings exquisite travel. twp

briefs Wood River Land Trust earns national recognition

The Land Trust Accreditation Commission, an independent program of the Land Trust Alliance, announced that the Wood River Land Trust has been awarded accredited status. “Accredited land trusts meet national quality standards for protecting important natural places and working lands forever,” said Commission Executive Director Tammara Van Ryn. “The accreditation seal lets the public know that the accredited land trust has undergone an extensive, external review of the governance and management of its organization and the systems and policies it uses to protect land.” Founded in 1994, the Wood River Land Trust’s mission is to protect and restore land, water, and wildlife habitat in the Wood River Valley and surrounding areas. Working cooperatively with private landowners and local communities, these landscapes are protected now and for future generations. To date, the Land Trust has permanently protected 11,930 acres of land and water resources. “We are proud to display the accreditation seal,” said Scott Boettger, executive director of the Wood River Land Trust. “Having achieved accredited status demonstrates our commitment to permanent land conservation. Our land trust is an even stronger organization today having gone through the rigorous accreditation program.” The Wood River Land Trust was awarded accreditation this December and is one of 113 land trusts from across the country that has been awarded accreditation since the fall of 2008. Accredited land trusts are able to display a seal indicating to the public that they meet national standards for excellence, uphold the public trust, and ensure that conservation efforts are permanent. The seal is a mark of distinction in land conservation.

Seventy-five years of ski fashion PHOTOS & STORY By KAREN BOSSICK


eventy-five years of Sun Valley history paraded across the stage Saturday afternoon as longtime Sun Valley residents trotted out their vintage skiwear for Sun Valley’s 75th anniversary season Ski Fashion Contest. JoAnn Levy showed up in her husband Buck’s 1950’s Olympic coat—a cotton blue smock that resembled doctor’s scrubs underneath. “I don’t know how they stayed warm,” she said. Shauna Smith showed up as the spitting image of Gretchen Fraser—the late Sun Valley resident who was the first American to win Olympic gold in skiing. “She’s my idol because she started adaptive skiing and I’m an adaptive ski instructor,” said Smith, who was wearing authentic 1940’s Sun Valley trousers. Jim and Pirie Grossman showed up wearing the knickerbockers and dress that they wore when they were married on top of Baldy 10 years ago. This time, however, they had children Buey and Saba in tow, helping to carry the wooden skis and bamboo poles. They lost the 1930’s decade prize to Pam Street and her authentic Norwegian Nordic outfit, however, when Jim failed to show up on time because he was taking a run on the longboards. “As usual, I couldn’t get Jimmy off the hill,” Pirie said. Shauna Smith poses as the late Gretchen Fraser. Longtime Sun Valley ski instructor Rod Tatsuno appeared decked out in a mid-1970’s Sun Valley ski instructor uniform, joined by Russ Riley, who was wearing a one-piece version of the uniform crafted by Sun Valley’s Austrian ski instructors. Riley bought the suit for $12 at the Bogus Basin Ski Swap. “This is so tight I can hardly breathe,” said Tatsuno. Jill Hitchin echoed his sentiments as she showed off her 1970’s piece. “I got into this after 34 years. I hope this contest goes fast or the seams will bust,” she said. Julie Webb, who described herself as the longest-teaching female ski instructor from Sun Valley, won the 1950’s decade for digging out a ski instructor sweater that former Ski School Director Sigi Engl had passed out to his charges for the 1955-56 season. Kathy Wygle showed up in a one-piece Creekside Inn suit Pam Street and Jim Grossman show off their boots. a friend had made her in the 1960s, while John Hansen showed up in a 10th Mountain Division coat. And Paul Wiley trotted out a pair of the first Head skis with metal edges—“skis on the packing crew in 1959,” he said. twp

The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley has received grants totaling $6,200 for its community spay and neuter programs. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has given the shelter $3,000; The Deer Creek Fund of the Helen K. and Arthur E. Johnson Foundation, $2,200; and the Donald W. and Gretchen K. Fraser Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation, $1,000. This past year the shelter’s no-cost community spay and neuter program provided nearly 400 spay/neuter surgeries for dogs and cats of needy families in Blaine County. “Four to six million healthy, adoptable pets are euthanized each year in this country because they don’t have homes,” said Dr. Jo-Anne Dixon, animal shelter medical director/executive director. “We are not going to “shelter” our way out of the problem. “We are grateful to these organizations, as well as all of our other donors, in recognizing the importance of this life-saving program and in helping us continue our mission as a no-kill shelter,” she added. For information about the spay and neuter clinics, call the shelter at 208788-4351.

Warming up the ice Sheehan’s son helps with iconic snow sculpture By KAREN BOSSICK


he sun’s nice. But 10-yearold Sean Sheehan’s favorite part of building Sun Valley’s giant snow sun outside the Sun Valley Lodge is the big splash at the end. That’s when he pushes the blocks of snow that were cut away from the base of the sun into the duck pond. It’s one of those dust-to-dust things. Sean and his dad, Mark Sheehan, create the sculpture mixing water from the duck pond with fresh snow to create slush. So, pushing the unused blocks back in just recycles the water that was there in the first place. Mark Sheehan started making snow sculptures in 1986 during Sun Valley’s 50th anniversary when one of his climbing buddies, Steve Lacey, told Sun Valley managers about the ice tower Sheehan had built in his backyard in Cold Springs. Over the years, he’s built a four-foot-diameter snowflake, a Union Pacific train with a slide, an old woman who lived in a ski boot and a 1940s vintage skier. “It’s painful hard work. You get sweaty and wet. You lift the chainsaw over your head and you’re crippled for a week. But then some woman comes out of the lodge and tells me, ‘Every time I see this sculpture, it lifts my spirits.’ And in that moment it’s all worth it,” said Sheehan, a Bellevue metalsmith. To make the sun, Sheehan and the Sun Valley maintenance department fill a 10-by-12-foot wooden form with snow. They then boot pack it and add water for it to freeze solid. After they strip the forms

Sean Sheehan’s pushes an ice block into the pond.

“It’s painful hard work… but then some woman comes out of the lodge and tells me ‘Every time I see this sulpture, it lifts my spirits.’ And in that moment, it’s all worth it.”

RIGHT: Sun Valley’s 75th anniversary season is immortalized—at least until the next warm spell—in this block of ice.

The Sun Valley Carolers, who have been performing in Sun Valley shops and restaurants this week, will offer up a few carols before the “Nutcracker on Ice” Christmas Eve.

away, Sheehan outlines the circle with a felt pen. He then roughs out the sculpture with a chain saw, and adds detail with slush. The sculpture takes about two to three days to complete. Once done, Sheehan gets to shed his neoprene gloves and go back to warmer work making custom handrails, light fixtures and fire screens for his aptlynamed Cherry Glow Forge and Fabrication architectural metals business. twp

Friday, Christmas Eve Sun Valley will roll out the free cocoa and cookies once again beginning at 5 p.m. on the Lodge Terrace for the free performance of “Nutcracker on Ice” that it offers to the community every Christmas. The Sun Valley Carolers will sing a few numbers preceding the show. Fireworks and a torchlight parade down Dollar Mountain will follow. Santa will take in the festivities and there will be free ice skating following the show.

Sunday Christmas Week will conclude with a performance of the comedy musical “Forever Plaid” at 7:30 p.m. in the Boiler Room. The musical, full of gags and laughs, revolves around four nerds who are given the opportunity to return to earth to perform the concert they never had the chance to do after being killed in a collision with a bus full of nuns. The songs include such 1950s favorites as “Three Coins in the Fountain” and even a bit of The Beatles in a performance you’ll never forget. Tickets are $10 at the door. twp

Winter Solstice dinner honors Trailing

un Valley was aglow in the lights of the Christmas season Saturday night. But none of the lights glowed more warmly than those spotlighting the Seventh Annual Winter Solstice Appreciation Dinner in the Sun Valley Lodge Dining Room. A sold-out crowd of 106 people attended the five-course gourmet dinner, which David and Jill Hitchin started to honor the Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-profit organizations. Each attendee dropped a sealed envelope with a check to the non-profit of their choice as they entered the dining room for a dinner of halibut, elk medallions and beef tenderloin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ever since I returned to

Sun Valley a year ago Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been searching for the soul of this community. And this group seems to embody that with its sense of community and service,â&#x20AC;? said Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Manager Tim Silva as he welcomed the group. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner honored the Trailing of the Sheep Festival, which was started 13 years ago by John and Diane Peavey and has grown into an event thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recognized nationwide. Under the direction of Mary Austin Crofts, it will add a full-day workshop of women writers of the West next October, along with an appearance by cowboy poet Baxter Black. It also honored Marc Mast and his Wood River Abilities Program, which uses skiing and

other recreational pursuits to enhance the lives of those with disabilities. Mast, who also founded Sun Valley Adaptive Sports, taught Paralympian Muffy Davis and Biathlete medalist Andy Soule how to ski on monoskis and he is currently involved in an effort to make Sun Valley an official training site for Paralympians. His program also works with veterans like Soule who were wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Finally, the Solstice Dinner honored Lynn Campion as â&#x20AC;&#x153;one of the most effective and committed philanthropists in the Valley.â&#x20AC;? Campionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Deer Creek Fund has donated $2 million to various Valley organizations. And she recently founded the Little Black Dress Club, where membership dues of $300 are funneled to community non-profits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Winter Solstice has been celebrated for thousands of years to show appreciation for loved

ones, friends and community. And tonight we show our appreciation for our Sun Valley friendships, our wonderful community and the wonderful life we have here,â&#x20AC;? said David Hitchen. A number of people indicated that the Solstice Dinner is their favorite Christmas event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very relaxed. You give a check donation to the charity of your choice, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no pressure, no expectations. Just good fellowship,â&#x20AC;? said Jeanne Cassell. twp

Armstrong addresses Special Olympics By KAREN BOSSICK


ristin Armstrong’s march toward Olympic gold could have started as a triathlete training at the Olympic Training Center. It could have started the moment a doctor told her she could no longer run due to arthritis in her hips. Or it could have started the day she began bicycling for exercise. But, likely, it began the day she jumped into a swimming pool at age 7 at the sound of a starter’s gun, she told those attending Special Olympics Idaho’s Breakfast with Champions Thursday morning at the Sun Valley Inn. “I dogpaddled 50 feet and grabbed onto the side of the pool for dear life, glad I hadn’t drowned.

determined. Then I won a World Championship. “I knew (the day I won Olympic Gold) that that day in the doctor’s office I was given a gift—a gift to achieve my dream.” Armstrong urged those in the crowd, which included actor Scott Glenn, to support the program. “The program is about so much more than having fun. It’s about the chance to compete, to believe in yourself, to gain a sparkle in your eyes,” she said. “It’s about knowing what it feels like to be alive. If that’s not winning, I don’t know what is.” After giving birth to a boy named Lucas three months ago, Armstrong decided to come out of retirement to compete in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London. “I hope I won’t end up like Brett

Favre,” she quipped. Armstrong said Thursday that her young’un isn’t active enough to put her through training paces yet. And, no, he’s not on training wheels yet. “But he’s an inspiration in himself,” said her husband Joe Savola, a former bicycle racer who accompanied her to Thursday’s event. “When he wakes up in the morning, he stretches and squirms. He opens his eyes and begins to focus. And then he corks the biggest grin. And you think: Why is he smiling? Because he doesn’t know any better. He has no stress. He doesn’t know what we know. He’s just happy to be alive.” Savola said the training regimen

Roundhouse offers new dining option By KAREN BOSSICK


ack in town for Christmas? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll notice that Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic Roundhouse Restaurant is getting a full dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s workoutâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;from 8:30 in the morning until 9 at night. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right: The Roundhouse Restaurant opened for dinner on Dec. 10, taking diners sailing above the lights of Ketchum via gondola to a dining perch 7,700 feet high. The opportunity to open the Roundhouse for dinner was one of the factors that led Sun Valley to build its multi-million dollar gondola last year even as a severe recession squelched such projects at other North American resorts. But after spending millions of dollars to refurbish the Roundhouse and build the gondola, the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopes of opening the restaurant for evening dining were put on hold, in part because there was no restroom that complied with the Americans with Disabilities Act on the restaurant level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were looking at a scenario where we would have to cut 20 feet off the hill that the restaurant sat on, tear down the Roundhouse and build a new restaurant. And that would have been a horrible mistake,â&#x20AC;? said Wally Huffman, who was general manager of Sun Valley at the time the resort started the project. Forest Service officials allowed the Roundhouse to open for dinner this winter as an extension of Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing permit. And Sun Valley obliged by building an ADA-compliant restroomâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;complete with the marble trimmings of so many of its other restrooms--for those who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go downstairs to the 1970s and 1940s-circa restrooms built at the bottom of the restaurant. The resort also upgraded its electrical system to boost the kitchen power and to light the outer ring of the restaurant, which has relied on sunlight for its lighting during the day. That was far less costly than the millions of dollars it would have cost to rebuild the restaurant, said Huffman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We literally couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have added one more light without it, though,â&#x20AC;? he added. Huffmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife Lauren, an interior decorator who has decorated many of Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lodges, added her touch to the nighttime elegance. She designed snowflakes that were replicated in the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s maintenance facility and incorporated into a screen separating the outer hall from the dining facility. Willow harvested in the White Clouds was incorporated into other screens. And Lauren Huffman hung chandeliers made of antlers

around the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique four-sided fireplace, which is accented by vintage snowshoes, wooden skis and other ski memorabilia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now the ceiling talks to you,â&#x20AC;? she said, looking upwards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was dark before.â&#x20AC;? Union Pacific built the Roundhouse in 1939 to resemble a railroad switch house, using money it saved building lifts on the mountain. In its earlier incarnation, it served as a cafeteria where halffrozen skiers riding the excruciatingly slow single chair from the bottom would stop for hot chocolate and a legendary chocolate cake roll before continuing their journey to the top of the mountain. Now the restaurant features a variety of entrees served up in hearty portions--from medallions of elk sporting a tasty kick with their port infused game sauce to an extremely tender filet mignon of prime beef with a cabernet veal jus. Appetizers include a savory lobster popover with lemon herb sour cream and golden caviar and a strudel of shitake, chantrelle and other mushrooms couched in a flaky pastry. Desserts include an Apricot Praline Cheesecake and a Flourless Double Chocolate Cake ringed by raspberries and a rich creamy vanilla sauce. The Roundhouse will be open Thursday through Saturday

with dinners beginning at 6 p.m. Already, there is a waiting list during the Christmas and New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weeks. And most other evenings in December and January are already booked, as well. The restaurant holds 154 with the primo seating in Averellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lounge, which looks out onto the twinkling lights of Ketchum below. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is prime location,â&#x20AC;? said Roundhouse Manager Michael McCormack, gazing out Averellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansive picture windows. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the money shot right twp here.â&#x20AC;?

To Know if You Go

The Roundhouse Restaurant is open for dining from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays. Entrees cost between $23 and $38 with the price of the gondola ride included in the meal. For reservations, call 208-622-2012. The restaurant also offers a First Track Continental Breakfast from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. each day during ski season. An elegant sit-down lunch is offered from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. And Averellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lounge serves up cocktails from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Non-skiers wanting to access the restaurant for breakfast or lunch must buy a gondola pass at the River Run Lodge. The gondola is included in the price of the evening meal. Parking for dinner guests is available in Sun Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two lower lots. Workers have installed solar-powered lights along the new pedestrian walkway that Sun Valley built this summer to enhance nighttime visibility for restaurant patrons.

The Idaho Special Olympics legacy lives on By KAREN BOSSICK


he legacy from the World Winter Games Special Olympics held in Idaho in 2009 still lives on, the chief executive officer of Special Olympics Idaho told those attending last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Breakfast with Champions. The gamesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;held in Sun Valley, McCall and Boiseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;brought 2,500 athletes from 85 countries to Idaho, infusing the state with up to $40 million just as the recession was beginning to have an impact, said Laurie La Follette. The athletes and their coaches raved about the beauty of Sun

Valley and the royal treatment they received from Sun Valley residents, she added. More than 300,000 students throughout the state were involved in Special Olympicsinspired programs such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nobody Eats Alone at Lunchâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ban the R(etard) Wordâ&#x20AC;? as they learned about accepting those with differences. There was a 40 percent grow in athlete numbers. Idaho has written a manual for other hosts to follow. Special Olympics has designed a safe training center in Boise where even athletes with health risks can work out with weights and other machines.

And the scarf project, designed to provide athletes with a memento of their games, has spawned a national scarf movement, La Follette added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had hoped to get volunteers to knit 300 to 400 scarves. We got 60,000 from all over the world,â&#x20AC;? La Follette said, adding that it gave one woman a reason to keep fighting through breast cancer and has given nursing home residents a purposeful activity. Sun Valley residents Jim and Pirie Grossman instigated the effort to bring the games to Idaho. Remembering special moments from the games brought

tears to the eyes of many attending Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breakfast. Jim Nystrom recalled a Chinese man who had never tried skis before coming to Sun Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d better learn how to use these before my competition,â&#x20AC;? Nystrom recalled him saying. Mary Gervase, who headed up an outreach to students across the state, said the challenge is to keep the energy going for the Special Olympics kids in Idaho. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a societal movementâ&#x20AC;Śone which makes us a more gentle, tolerant, accepting community,â&#x20AC;? said La Follette.

u NO Bank Guarantee

The City of Hailey Arts Commission invites Blaine County artists to submit qualifications to design, fabricate and install bicycle racks at nine transit stops along Woodside Boulevard. Up to three artists may be selected to receive commissions. The Woodside Boulevard Complete Streets Initiative is a $4.41 million project that will reconstruct the entire length of Woodside Boulevard. This project will include resurfacing of the 35-year-old, 2.44-mile street, adding sidewalks, bike lanes, bus shelters, bike parking and a landscaped buffer zone, as well as a potential roundabout at the Fox Acres and Woodside Boulevard intersection, and a traffic light where Woodside Boulevard meets Highway 75.

This public art project will result in the design, fabrication and installation of nine one-of-a-kind bicycle racks. Racks should be designed to accommodate a minimum of four bicycles. Artists will be required to coordinate with the Hailey public art coordinator and JUB, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project engineer. There will be an artist workshop on Jan. 20, 2011, to discuss the project in more detail. Full details, including City of Hailey Bicycle Rack Standards, can be found online at http://www.haileycityhall. org/ArtsCommission/ArtsCommissionOpportunities.asp#Top For more information, please contact Hailey Public Art Coordinator Tracy Anderson at 788-4221, ext. 26, or

ere are some ideas to make your holidays (and you) happier: â&#x20AC;˘ Wear supportive footwear when standing. Although the ladies want to look special for the holidays, avoid regularly wearing high-heeled shoes, which can affect the bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s center of gravity and change the alignment of the entire body. When standing for long periods of time, placing a rubber mat on the floor can improve comfort. The mats make great holiday gifts and are now fashionably designed too! â&#x20AC;˘ Remember good ergonomics when in motion. Walking in snow, lifting gifts, snow shoveling and standing at holiday parties are all activities that require attention to ergonomics and posture. Remember to avoid holding your breath as you engage your abdominal muscles! â&#x20AC;˘ Create ergonomic workspaces. The time honored tradition of writing holiday cards requires time sitting in an office chair or at a computer which is one of the most loaded positions of the spine! While it does require a small investment of time to personalize the workspace, home, and car, the payoff will be well worth it. â&#x20AC;˘ Increase awareness of posture. Make conscious connections between episodes of back pain and specific situations where poor posture may be the root cause of the pain. â&#x20AC;˘Â Make time for exercise. A recent study reported that more than half of U.S. adults do not get the minimum recommended amount of moderate cardio exercise -- for 30 minutes per day, five days per week. This statistic is particularly troubling for people with back pain, since exercise is so crucial for pain relief. Exercise can stimulate fluid exchange in the spinal discs, providing nutrients to help healing and reduce painful swelling in surrounding tissues. â&#x20AC;˘ Give a gift. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gift to yourself or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hinting to loved ones, consider the gift of Physical Therapy. After all, PTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are the movement specialists and can design a customized exercise program with specific exercises that will help reduce pain, maintain good posture, strengthen and stretch your muscles to prevent future injury. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to a safe holiday season and pain-free 2011! twp

'Twas the Night Before Christmas

So I finally arrived with a glimmer of hope, But soon came to realize I'd forgotten the rope! The washer squeezed tight in the trunk of my car, And the owner, he laughed, "'Do you have to go far?"

Classified Style 'Twas the night before Christmas, I walked in the house And with a hug and a kiss, I greeted my spouse. Pulled a beer from the fridge, and some holiday snacks, It was a long day at work, and time to relax.

Duane “Cash” Holze & Todd “Carry” Holze

I strolled to the den, and there I would see, My favorite old chair just waiting for me. The remote in my hand and the beer on my lap, I settled right down for a long evening nap. When out of the basement there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter. My wife yelled, "Honey, you have to come quick! The washer…it's broken! It's finally quit."

12/19/10 ©The Classified Guys®

So standing in water and suds like the sea, It was clear why my in-laws gave it to us for free! But with a grunt and a groan, I dragged it outside, Put a sign by the curb, "Please take it. It died!"

So I picked up the phone and I started to dial, For the machine I had found, the right color and style. "I'm calling on your washer, and I need one tonight!" "Come right over," he said, "and I'll put on the light."

I returned to my wife wondering, "What should I do?" 'Cause money was tight and she wanted "Like New". I thought of the classifieds, and turned to that section, When it comes to new washers, there's quite a selection.

I sprang into action, down the driveway I flew, The tires skidding out on the mid-evening dew. I pulled into their drive and I knocked on the door, A young gentleman asked, "What are you here for?"

There's Hot Point and Maytag, Sears Kenmore and GE, Even front-loading types from both Bosch and LG. From the bottom of the line to the top of deluxe, I could buy any one for a mere hundred bucks!

"The washer," I said, "We spoke on the phone?" "You have the wrong house," he said with a groan. So back in the car to now clear up this mess, I sure wish I had charged my new GPS!

But I hopped in my coupe and I sped straight away, And yelled out the window, "Have a Happy Holiday!" I arrived at my home to put the washer in place, And my wife greeted me with a warm, sweet embrace. With the hoses hooked up and the power plugged in, I smiled at my wife with a pearly-white grin. And I headed upstairs, but then heard her shriek, "Honey, please wait! There's still a big leak!"

Add a photo to your real estate or automotive line ad for only $7 per week.

I spoke not a word and went straight to my work, And fixed all the leaks with a turn and a jerk. Then a twist of the knob, and my wife was aglow, She cried as she said, "You're my Santa, you know." I sprang up the stairs to go hop in my chair, And thought, "These are the reasons I'm loosing my hair!" So I stopped by the kitchen and grabbed a new beer, 'Cause that and a nap is called "Holiday Cheer!"

The Fifth Annual Snuggles for Seniors will take place at 2:30 PM at Blaine Manor in Hailey, Idaho on Wednesday, December 22, 2010 At age 10, Kelsey Syms founded Snuggles for Seniors, based on her experience of gifting a stuffed animal to her Great Grandmother. Having seen the joy brought to seniors upon receiving the gift of a stuffed animal, Kelsey Syms decided she would do the same for Seniors in her own community. This will be the Fifth year Kelsey will be distributing stuffed animals to the Seniors at Blaine Manor. She receives donations of stuffed animals throughout the year and saves her money to purchase whatever shortfall she might incur. Each animal is placed in a gift bag and presented to the Seniors at their annual holiday party with the help of Santa Claus, Jack Williams. Additional information regarding Snuggles for Seniors can be found at

Superintendent Doug Neighbor recently announced the schedule of winter events and activities for Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve. “This year’s plentiful snowfall has provided an excellent opportunity for visitors to enjoy the wonderful winter world of Craters of the Moon. We invite you to explore the park on your own or participate in one of our free snowshoe activities during this special time of year” he said. Cross-country Skiing/ Snowshoeing: Mid-December thru February The 7 Mile Loop Road has been groomed for skiing. Most of the snow trail follows relatively level terrain and can be completed in 2 to 4 hours. There are also excellent opportunities for snowshoeing throughout the park including a 1.5 mile snowshoe loop.
