Bone Up On Skiing Trivia
THE GHOSTS OF MAYAGUANA
Alan Patzer says Sun Valley’s skiing was originally confined to mountains like Dollar, Ruud and Proctor that could offer a few hundred feet of vertical. Baldy became part of the equation as people began clamoring for the big mountain experience and a few thousand feet of skiing.
STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
id you know that nearby 12,009-foot Hyndman Peak was once thought to be the tallest mountain in Idaho, even though it’s a a good 600 feet shorter than Mount Borah? Or that it’s a mile, as the crow flies, from the top of Bald Mountain to the top of Seattle Ridge? You can learn all this and more on a free whirlwind tour of Bald Mountain offered each day at 11 a.m. by Sun Valley’s director of skiing Alan Patzer, who has been extolling the virtues of Sun Valley’s “winter sports under a summer sun” for 40 years. The 90-minute tour starts in the Mountain View Room at River Run Lodge at the bottom of Bald Mountain and quickly zooms through 78 years of history dating back to the days before there was a destination ski resort in North America or even Europe. “Averell Harriman, in the early ’30s, envisioned creating a destination ski area to give Americans a reason not to hop on a ship to go to some town in Europe where they could grab a rope tour and ski,” said Patzer. “At that time, railroads were our main form of mass transportation as we didn’t have the interstate system. “Averell sent out a scout looking for a place with an alpine European flavor and he couldn’t find what he was looking for until someone suggested Ketchum. Ketchum shipped a lot of ore; it also was the sheep-shipping capital of America.” When the snows failed to come that first winter of 1936, the railroad magnate put everyone up at the Sun Valley Lodge at his expense until the snows did come. People have been skiing here ever since, with the exception of the winter of 1944 when the lodge was used as a naval hospital. The winter of 1976-77 was also marginal, Patzer said. With only a few snow guns in place, skiers could ski Lower Warm Springs, a little bit of what is now Picabo Street, Mid Warm Springs and Flying Squirrel. “We got 12 inches of actual snow that year. For 10 days to two weeks we could go to the top from 9 to 11:30,” Patzer recalled.

PHOTOS AND STORY BY JOHN HUBER OF PICABO ANGLER
ayaguana is a place of ghosts. They can be found in the history of the island and the flats surrounding it. One of the smallest islands in the Bahamas, Mayaguana was to become a strategic location for U.S. forces during the Cuban Missile Crisis. At one time as many as 1800 American servicemen occupied the island, readying for war. This was followed by the NASA Thor missile operation, which was to return the first color photo of Earth taken from space—the idea being the capsule would crash down near the island, which it did… but the nose cone with the camera was separated. Sometime later a local islander found it washed up on a beach and they held in their hands that first color photo of Earth! These historic sites

are now being taken back by the island’s flora and fauna, leaving the buildings standing like a ghost town. The island now claims 350 inhabitants. I would say
this is a very strong estimate. The other ghosts found on Mayaguana are the ghosts of the flats! The massive bonefish that can be found here were my reason for exploring the island’s coast-
lines, creeks, lakes, cays and reefs. The best word I can use to describe the island is “wilderness.” I and fellow fly-fishing guide Andy Ziemba set out to explore this wild place with fly rods, a canoe and a willingness to immerse ourselves in the island life. Mayaguana has one hotel and we were the only guests there. After a few days we left the hotel and struck out with bivy tents and a sense of adventure for one of the outlying cays. I know of four places in the world an angler can consistently have a good chance of finding the Holy Grail of bonefish—the 10-pound-plus trophy. They include the Seychelles, Arricife Alacranes, Andros Island and Mayaguana. Although amazing, this is a fishery not suited for

STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
un Valley’s 22-foot Olympic-sanctioned superpipe has been the envy of ski resorts around North America. But a 2-foot-tall mini-pipe a few hundred feet away is having a big impact in an understated sort of way. The mini-pipe is one of the features in Sun Valley’s new Prospector Park located on Dollar Mountain. The park’s features are miniscule compared with the ski/board cross — the rails and boxes and jumps that are scattered across the rest of the mountain. But the mini-pipe and the nearby banks and rollers are designed to accelerate the learning curve of youngsters and adults in a way that making pizza wedges or snowplowing on flat terrain cannot. “The terrain is the teacher,” said Sun Valley ski instructor Aaron Fabish. “The natural movements help students progress faster.” Sun Valley ski instructor Shannon Price led a group of youngsters down the course, which is located on the Elkhorn Road side of Dollar Mountain. The youngsters entered the banked area cautiously but picked up speed as they became more comfortable. Just as it looked as if they might get out of control, the act of going up the banked snow slowed them down. They turned and dipped downwards and repeated the process until they came to the
end of the feature and headed for rollers at the bottom of the course. “Fun!” one exclaimed. “Let’s do it again!” said another. The features in this park take away fear because they slow you down, said Price. “It’s a fun way to teach kids skills. They don’t know they’re learning. The terrain with a little bit of slope teaches them to turn naturally. They learn much quicker than they would skiing down Poverty Flats or Dollar Bowl,” she said. The park is a new way of using time-tried methods of teaching, she added. “We created an area that has features, rather than looking for bumps and banks along the sides of runs. It’s an old idea that’s coming back into skiing,” she said. “The kids—and adults— progress quicker and without as much fear as they would otherwise.” In addition to serving as a teaching tool, the park has proved just plain fun for families who schuss through on occasion, enjoying the features together without feeling intimidated as they might with bigger terrain features. “After just one day, you will no longer be a beginner,” said Tony Parkhill, Sun Valley’s SnowSports School supervisor. “And it’s not just for youngsters. It it’s good for re-introducing adults to skiing who have not skied for a few years due to injury or the busyness of life.”

aylee Pettit, a Wood River High School junior carrying a 3.5 grade point average, is a master of the keys – piano keys, that is. Starting at the age of 6 she will readily tell you that playing and performing are her passions in life. “I really love performing,” Pettit said. “The day of the performance I’m super-nervous. Then the closer it gets I get really freaked out and when I get on the stage I’m a wreck. But what’s so amazing is that once I get out there, it all melts away. It’s just so cool that I get to share what I’ve learned with an audience and they get to really enjoy it.” Although she began playing at the age of 6, mostly because her mom is a teacher, she lost interest after about a year and a half. “It just wasn’t fun, but my freshman year I started back up again. I just played by myself and then it was suggested that I attend the Sun Valley School of Music.” At the school they teach piano, voice and string instruments on Saturdays and then one private lesson a week which Pettit takes with Sue Miller or Leigh Heward. They work every week during the school year, with the summers optional. “It was really hard at first because I was resistant to doing what I was supposed to, but then I started to and progressed so much that here I am today!” Pettit has been studying at the school the last three years. “It’s been really amazing because you learn so much. They are just so positive about your progress and they really do what they can to help you get where you want to go with music. I want to be a performance major in college and after that hopefully perform or teach.” At Wood River, Pettit is currently taking Advanced Placement music theory. “It’s
really all about how you write music and the rules that you need to follow to sound correct. There are only eight people so it’s a small class and there is a lot of one on one. It’s pretty cool to learn, even though at times it can be tedious. I’m not sure but I may do some writing some day. Freshman year we learned a piece from each time period and my favorite was Chopin. Even
“It was really hard at first because I was resistant to doing what I was supposed to, but then I started to and progressed so much that here I am today!” -Haylee Pettit though it was his piece and those were his notes on the page. I could interpret it how I wanted it to be and that was really cool. I also love Shostakovich because it’s so fast and fun and loud.” Pettit will be performing a piece by Shostakovich at the state competition this May, with fellow student Joel Rinkwald on the cello. “Technically, I’ll be accompanying him but the spotlight is on both of us so you can really call it a duet. He came to me and said it would be fun and at the regional’s we got the highest rating of superior. Of course, we procrastinated and learned it in a week! In May we will be competing against a lot of talented people so I’m pretty nervous but I’m really excited at the same time.” tws

The Perils Of Performance Chasing BY LORI NURGE
t one time or another every investment professional has probably received a call from an investor who wants to know what the “hottest” investment is, and what he or she can do to get in on it. While it can be quite tempting to jump on the bandwagon after a highly publicized IPO, when a company comes out with a hot new product, or during a bull market, investors should be careful about trying to time the market, or “performance chase.” To avoid making a move that may have a drastic impact on their investments, investors should remember a few basic fundamentals of investing, the first of which, we’ve heard time and time again, is to buy low and sell high. Seems logical, right? Unfortunately, many investors find themselves falling into the trap of wanting to take advantage of a popular stock. Because of the stock’s popularity, they may find that it may be overvalued and perhaps they are paying more than the stock’s true value. During periods of market volatility, many investors’ natural inclination is to take their money out of the stock market and park it in more conservative invest-
ments to avoid subjecting themselves to a decline in the value of their investments. While this may make sense in theory, attempting to time the market can have significant financial repercussions. The biggest potential pitfall in trying to time the market is missing the days it’s “up.” In fact, if you had missed the stock market’s 10 best days over the past decade, you would have lost nearly 5 percent of your original investment. The temptation to time the market is understandable: If you were invested on days when the market went up, and out of the market on “down” days, you would earn the best return possible. However, moving in and out of the market fails to take into account the negative effect of income and capital gains taxes. Even if you could predict the market’s movements, the frequent buying and selling would diminish your return. One thing that most experts can agree on is that determining the “best” time to get in or out of the market can be nearly impossible, and that for most investors, trying to time the market is not a practical investing strategy. Trying to determine exactly
when one should aggressively invest or back out of the market takes a considerable amount of expertise and time to monitor market environments. Even the most savvy investors and advisors can’t guarantee that their predictions will be correct, since there are no guarantees when it comes to how the financial markets will perform. One of the best strategies to ensure capturing the best days is to remain invested. In addition to an appropriate asset allocation to fit one’s goals and risk tolerance, successful investing requires a long-term approach and a willingness to endure market volatility from time to time. Asset allocation does not ensure profit or protect against loss. Contact your investment professional for more on asset allocation and guidelines on how to avoid “performance chasing” and trying to time the market.

Ketchum Named One Of America’s Best Small Towns To Visit BY KAREN BOSSICK
hey just seem to keep coming… like the sheep bleating their way up Main Street during the Trailing of the Sheep parade. The Sun Valley area has been named to yet another Best List. In this case, Ketchum has been named one of Smithsonian Magazine’s 20 best small towns to visit in 2014. And, of course, the Trailing of the Sheep Festival is one of the drawing points. The article scarcely talks about the skiing on Bald Mountain, which overlooks the town. Instead, it talks about the town’s mining heritage, its tenure as America’s largest sheep-shipping station and, of course, the Trailing of the Sheep Festival, which features exhibits, a sheep dog competition and more during four days the second week of October. It encourages folks to check out Ernest Hemingway’s last house and grave. And it praises present-day Ketchum as “a celebrated center for arts and culture… home to 20 art galleries and a year-round lecture series, as well as various musical and theatrical productions…” Others on the list include Chautauqua, N.Y.; Williamsburg, Va.; Steamboat Springs, Colo.; Woods Hole,
Mass.; Healdsburg, Calif.; The Dalles, Ore.; Beaufort, S.C.; Sedona, Ariz.; Nebraska City, Neb.; and Spring Green, Wis. What’s in Spring Green, you ask? Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin, The House on the Rock and an outdoor theater. Decorah, Iowa, is another town you may never have heard of. But it sounds like a go-to place. Not only does it boast a waterfall and hiking trails, but its Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum has 12 historic buildings and 24,000 artifacts, making it the most comprehensive collection of Norwegian-American artifacts in the world. AND, those involved in the valley’s new seed-savers group may be interested to know it has the largest non-governmental seed bank in North America—Seed Savers— which has more than 6,200 varieties of tomatoes alone.

SKIING TRIVIA, from page 1 “Earl and Carol Holding bought Sun Valley that year and immediately dedicated money to snowmaking equipment, detachable quads and ski lodges. Now we have the largest automated snowmaking system in the world. “Our system is so refined that we can dial in the type snow we want. We call it ‘gun powder.’ Our cold nights and low humidity give us powdery snow compared with the icy, marble snow others get.” Those who take the mountain tour get a heavy dose of skiing along with Sun Valley trivia. They also learn helpful tips to navigate the mountain. The mountain is divided into five parts, but has only two entrances, making it very secure. Ninety percent of the runs are east-facing or northeast-facing, said Patzer, so there’s no late afternoon meltout from the afternoon sun. “Even if the air temperature is 50 degrees, the snow doesn’t know it’s so warm so you can work your way around the mountain in the spring,” Patzer said. “Christmas Bowl is the first to get corn snow, then Seattle Ridge, then the Bowls. You can ski Warm Springs late afternoon and chances are it won’t be mushy.” Baldy, so-named because of its treeless top, is not attached to any of the four mountain ranges that surround it. When you look to the south, you can see where a tremendous amount of water flowed off the mountain into Lake Bonneville, which was the largest prehistoric lake in North America. Now that area is known as the Snake River Plain and it comprises the Snake River gorge, which is the deepest river gorge in North America. The area is also part of the Yellowstone Caldera and has hot springs to prove it, most notably at the bottom of Warm Springs where Jim Cimino’s yard melts early and the air is sometimes filled with a rotten egg smell, Patzer added.
SUN VALLEY RESORT APPOINTS TYLER JONES DIRECTOR OF GOLF Sun Valley Resort is pleased to announce the return of Tyler Jones, who will assume the title of Director of Golf Operations. Tyler comes to Sun Valley with more than 15 years of experience managing successful golf operations in California and Washington, most recently as general manager at the Olympia Country & Golf Club in Olympia, Wash.

Tyler will assume responsibility for full operation of Sun Valley’s 45 holes of golf—the 18-hole Trail Creek Golf Course, the nine-hole White Clouds Golf Course and the 18-hole Elkhorn Golf Club. “Sun Valley has been a very special place for my family for over 50 years and we are thrilled to be joining the Sun Valley team. I am very much looking forward to the opportunity of carrying on the tradition of offering the highest levels of hospitality and world-class amenities that Sun Valley Resort is known for,” Tyler said.

It’s A Long Way To The Top If It’s Never Too Late To You Want To Rock ‘N’ Roll Weatherize! ERC beat
id you feel some drafts this winter? Is your power bill pinching your wallet? Don’t be like the proverbial monkey who dismissed the leaky roof as soon as the sun came out! Springtime is perfect for remedies. Schedule that furnace tune-up now while the heating companies aren’t so busy. Consider switching to a permanent furnace filter; they cost more but save materials and time in the long run. Likewise, this is the time for installing an energy-efficient furnace, a programmable thermostat, additional insulation or triple-paned windows. On the super-easy-to-do side, fix those drafts! Simple leaks can sap home energy efficiency by 5 percent to 30 percent a year, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. That means it pays to seal up gaps with caulking and weatherstripping. Take a close look where different building materials meet—at corners, around chimneys, where pipes or wires exit and along the foundation (observe the smoke path from a lit stick of incense). Anywhere air is sneaking in, your heating is sneaking out. Even draft snakes under the doors can help! Added insulation is one of the best ways to save energy and money at home. Increase insulation between walls, making sure your attic floor and basement ceiling are also well covered. The simple act of installing a storm door can increase energy efficiency by 45 percent, by sealing drafts and reducing air flow. Storm doors also offer greater flexibility for letting light and ventilation enter your home. Find draft snake how-to’s at Facebook/ ERC Sun Valley.

t really can be, especially if you are a girl! I interviewed the ladies from Hell’s Belles, an all-female AC/DC tribute band, on Saturday night before they rocked the stage at Whiskey Jacques’, and I was shocked that almost every one of them mentioned the struggles of being a female rocker, and it being more difficult getting recognition in their industry. By the time I got upstairs, and was waiting with the crowd for the ladies to appear on stage, I had started to notice a little bit of what they were talking about. The crowd was a mix of younger and older generations, but it was evident that part of the crowd was not convinced as to why Whiskey’s had honored the band’s request to not have the bar/restaurant open prior to opening the doors for the show. In the words of one man, “They can’t be that special.” My husband was quick to defend the Belles, and say, “Just wait, and you’ll understand.” Within 10 minutes of the show beginning, the man bought my husband a beer and stated that if that discussion had been a bet, my husband would have won. But it wasn’t just one man, it was several people that were skeptical, that had never witnessed anything like the Hell’s Belles. Lead vocalist Amber Saxon smothers the crowd with her vocals that sound disturbingly close to that of Brian Johnson’s while sporting a gorgeous smile; Adrian Conner spins around on the stage floor on her back and rips through the crowd, slaying her guitar strings to shreds; Laura Derig is fierce on the drums with a cigarette hanging from her mouth, while Sharon Needles on rhythm guitar and Mandy Reed on bass are really as cool and smooth as they look. It doesn’t take long for the crowd to recognize that these ladies seriously rock and put on a show just as good, if not better, than the original AC/DC. Conner, who plays the role of Angus Young, lead guitar, forces her way through the crowd, climbs up onto the bar and whips her dreads into anyone who might be in her way, and finishes a song off by drinking someone else’s drink off the bar. I am pretty sure if I were that awesome, I would do the same. If you were not there, you should have been. The whole crowd was rowdy and full of energy. Hell’s Belles always puts on a very engaged show with the
crowd, but some members of the crowd try to push their luck by jumping onto the stage, in which Whiskey’s staff was quick to help out. With such a well-executed show, you would think that these ladies spend their time living a life devoted to AC/DC... “Riding down the highway, going to a show, stop in all the byways, playin’ rock ‘n’ roll…” and everything that you think rock stars come with. Behind it all there are vocal warmups, serious sound checks, and other projects. Saxon hits it hard in the summer with the “Girls Rock Camp, Austin,” in which young girls come, learn to play instruments, form bands and perform in a showcase at the end of the week. She also is lead vocalist for BugGirl, a three-person heavy metal group out of Austin, Texas, whose latest album release was titled “Lesbians for Satan.” Saxon remarked about the album, “It’s really focused on how white male politicians around the world are f—ing things up.” BugGirl ramps up for a short stateside tour in May, and they just returned from Saxon’s home country of Australia. On a side note, Saxon really is the type of person who would give you the shirt off her back—easygoing, and a pleasure to have a drink with. She’s not the only Belle with side projects, or getting ready to tour with other people. Conner also has her own band, called “Adrian and the Sickness,” who also just released an album on March 12, 2014, “Be Your Own Saviour.” Conner talks about how difficult it can be, being a female in the rock music industry, and even just how having enough money to release an album is a burden. It all costs. She also told me about how hard it is to get the recognition of other artists. After listening to her melodic, somewhat ’90s-sounding alternative album, I find it hard not to enjoy all the songs she has written. Laura D chimed in, “We write our own lyrics, too,” referring to her band, “LD and Her Pretty Pretties,” based out of Seattle. If you get a chance, check out their song, “Walk Away.” Reminds me of everything that I loved about Seattle’s alternative music scene. She also was the first to mention that they have also recently started covering Judas Priest. Saxon added, “I love all the leather that we wear at those shows!” Still, this high-energy group of female rockers has more going on. Sharon Needles was also a guitarist for Betty Blowtorch,
“We all have this common denominator—a pull to the simplicity of the music and the energy it creates.” -Adrian Conner
T H E W E E K LY S U N •
which was founded by three members of Butt Trumpet. In 2001, the lead singer for Betty Blowtorch was killed in a car wreck, and the group now only plays on special occasions or for charity events. Needles now resides in Orange County, Calif., and really enjoys spending time with her 10-year-old son. Mandy Reed and Laura D (short for Derig, I hope) also play with Adrian’s band in their free time, or when needed. Derig shared that she had once asked her mom to stay away from the front of the stage at a show because shows can get kind of intense and rough. But Laura D’s mom still rocked up to the front with two tequilas in hand, one of which Conner apparently thought was for her, and she helped herself to it (kind of just how she does at every show!). Laura D kindly said, “My mom can still handle her own at a show.” And Conner added, “Our
moms should probably never meet…” After hanging with these girls for awhile, I couldn’t help asking, “How does this all work?” Everyone is involved with so much, and always touring, but somehow they still get together to play in Hell’s Belles. Conner said it’s about the energy. “We all have this common denominator—a pull to the simplicity of the music and the energy it creates.” In all honesty, I might have suspected a bit of a more hardcore lifestyle for these ladies, just by their stage presentation when I first saw them last year. But truly, this is a very talented, hardworking and balanced group of ladies who, despite their racy show and amazing cover songs, deserve to be called some of the truest “queens of rock.” After all, they have worked hard for it. tws

â€œRedneck Hatsâ€? Protect Against The Sun, Hide From Big Game
Doug Niedrichâ€™s face masks can be tucked into the ball cap, allowing them to move through brush without snagging it.
STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
ant to get your Game Face on? Look no further than Doug Niedrichâ€™s Game Face Gear. The Bellevue innovator has created a unique line of colorful sun shade head gear designed to give kids a playful way to protect their skin from melanoma. The hats can also be treated with insect repellant treatments. For adults heâ€™s designed a Quik Camo hat and face. Hunters can wear it like a normal ball cap, allowing them to move through the woods without catching anything on limbs and brush. When they want to cover up, all they have to do is shake the hat, allowing the built-in fact mask sporting what looks like brown and green leaves to drop down to camouflage them from wild game. The face mask wicks moisture, is breathable and quick drying. It even has an anti-microbial, anti-bacterial sweatband and
small holes for glasses to fit through. â€œTheyâ€™re what you would call redneck hatsâ€”they keep the sun off your neck and ears,â€? Niedrich said. â€œKids will wear the sun shades because they feature their favorite action heroesâ€”like Spiderman. And the camouflage face mask is so simple and easy to use.â€? Niedrich has had a long history of entrepreneurship. He built one of the first climbing walls in the county at Blaine County Fitness in 1993 and he put on one of the first mountain bike races in Idaho out Trail Creek. The national mountain bike race he helped organize down Dollar Mountain in the mid 1980s was one of the richest mountain bike races for its time with a purse of $30,000. â€œMy dad told me to do what you love. And my mother was a nurturer, always supportive. She always encouraged me to be self-reliant, resourceful, creative,â€? he said. Niedrich developed the Game Face Gear with the help of
his friend Warren Nichols. He stitched them together in the basement of his mother Elaine Niedrichâ€™s Hailey home before finding what he called â€œthe best hat factory in the worldâ€? in Southeast Asia. He recently won $10,000 as one of five finalists in Philips North Americaâ€™s Innovation Fellows competition. The competition focused on technology that furthered peopleâ€™s health and well-being. Niedrich, who would like to partner with a corporation like Disney, Marvel Comics or DC Comics, says his foray into creative hats and game masks has unlimited potential. â€œMajor League Baseball, NCAA team colorsâ€ŚYou could even put your face on it with the technology we have now.â€? Niedrichâ€™s Game Face Gear, which range from $24.99 to $39.99, are available at such stores as High Desert Sports, Silver Creek Outfitters and Guffyâ€™s.

Spring Cleaning BY CHRIS MILLSPAUGH
S The skiing on Bald Mountain—as seen through the windows of St. Thomas Episcopal Church— has been superb, thanks to Sun Valley’s trademark cold nights and sunny days. Skiing on the Nordic trails from the Sawtooth National Recreation Area Headquarters north has been good, as well, with the snow beginning to soften about noon. Photo: KAREN BOSSICK
pring is here. Winter has gone. Spring cleaning has begun. I started the annual ritual this past weekend and it wasn’t pretty, folks. I’m not going to swear on a lie detector test but I do believe that I uncovered debris from the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 in my living room behind the couch. Who’s to say I’m wrong? Two seasons ago, that’s where I found Jesus. You never know what you’ll discover at the onset of the yearly scrub. Six winter seasons ago, I actually lost my willingness to imbibe alcohol at will. Did I err? Probably not, but the thought of a cold sixpack hat kept lingering in my mind as I began cleaning was overpowering. However, I chased the demons and dug in with gusto. Okay, maybe the word “gusto” was a tad awry but I did give it my best shot. (No, I didn’t have a shot; I meant my best try.) There were floors to scrub, windows to wash, tile to be polished, cobwebs to be dispatched and rugs to vacuum. After discovering
the missing airline debris while moving the couch, I paused for a moment, sat down and watched three games of the NCAA playoffs before returning to the tasks ahead. I decided to start in the basement and work my way up. To my surprise, I found a family of Ecuadorian immigrants who greeted me with warm gratitude for their winter stay. We had a sumptuous breakfast together and they agreed to assist me with my chores. I agreed because the basement was spotless and I begged them to stay for another year. In retrospect, I believe the scrubbing of the kitchen and bathroom tiles were the most challenging. Apparently, they hadn’t been seen to since 1946 when the Union Pacific employees had moved in and used it as a bunkhouse. (It’s an older home.) The tile scrubbing took three days and, as I opened the oven to prepare to clean it, I suddenly closed the door, called Sears and opted to buy a new one. It very well could have been the best decision I had made all
week—besides the removal of my ex-neighbor from the chimney of the fireplace. (But that’s another story.) In the garage, I discovered a locomotive that hadn’t been touched in years. There was a sign on it that said “Train at Home!” which puzzled me for a while and then was forgotten because of the myriad of tasks that loomed ahead. For the next four hours I shuffled boxes back and forth, inspected the contents inside and decided to keep everything, which I have been doing for the last decade. (“You never know”). Before I started to take down the Christmas decorations, I took a small break and ate papayas and drank mango juice with my news friends from Cuenca. After a soccer game in the back yard, we raked the soil, found a Chinese tunnel that led to Hailey and called it a day… or week, in this case. I’m happy in my newly cleaned house. The landlord was so impressed he raised my rent $25. Perhaps I won’t tidy up next spring. Nice talking to you. tws
Melissa Bejot, the new family and children’s director at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, took advantage of the first day of spring to photograph a pansy growing in the cracks of the sidewalk near Iconoclast Books in Ketchum. Buttercups are starting to peek out of the ground along some of the valley’s trails, as well, including the Hangmans Gulch trails behind Old Cutters. Photo: KAREN BOSSICK

Fishing R epoRt THE “WEEKLY” FISHING REPORT FOR MAR. 26 FROM PICABO ANGLER
he last week of winter fly fishing is upon us. Most area rivers close for the spawning season at midnight on Monday. This means the Big Wood and the South Fork of the Boise are closed until May 24th. Silver Creek is already closed and will also reopen on May 24th. The Little Wood and Big Lost rivers remain open all year. Steelhead season is also open on the Salmon River and expected returns look good. Salmon runs are predicted to be the biggest since 1938! So there is a lot to pay attention to right now, and a lot to look forward to. The last week of the Big Wood is always spectacular. Expect very large midge hatches and an abundance of the little black stoneflies. With the impeccable weather, there is no reason to stay at home—get out there and enjoy the Wood and the excellent catch rates right now. The South Fork of the Boise is still in recovery phase and should be for some time to come. Midge fishing has been OK here but I would expect a busy river corridor this weekend as the Boise angling community gets its last casts in for the winter season. While the year should bring new life to this heavily damaged river corridor, don’t expect a lot of change for the better right away. We need a lot of water to help fix this, and this winter has not provided much hope. The river will return, though, but in the meantime, PLEASE be kind to these fish. The real news is on the Big Lost, which has started seeing big hatches of baetis (BWOs) almost daily. The midge action has also been strong, but in the presence of the baetis, the fish prefer to eat the baetis. This is another great example of a masking hatch, where anglers see a dominant hatch, but the fish are eating the less prominent hatch masked by the bigger of the two. If you go, try small size 18 and 20 pheasant tails and red zebra nymphs subsurface, and on the top look to use well-tied CDC patterns including the duns and cripples. We have a fantastic selection here at Picabo Angler. Stop by and we can get you breakfast and a latté while you pick some flies and we can also help fill your cooler for lunch and après-fishing!

Tony Parkhill says Sun Valley employees have a rich tradition to live up to when it comes to working with resort guests. STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
hat makes Sun Valley unique from other ski resorts? The fact that 75 percent of our guests are returnees, says Sun Valley SnowSports School Director Tony Parkhill. Given that fact, we need to show an incredible amount of commitment to our guests, he’s fond of telling the ski and snowboard instructors. “We’re a guest-centric culture. It sounds easy. It’s not. How do we articulate it? We are Sun Valley with our rich traditions. It’s pretty easy for me to put a smile on my face and come to work every morning because I love it. But I’ve got to convey that attitude to our guests. I—we—are here to deliver the perfect day.” Sun Valley made the ski world sit up and take notice when it opened 3,100 vertical feet of ski runs on the mountain the week before Thanksgiving for 190 ski racers involved in a racing camp. “Carl Rixon said we were the talk of Copper Mountain, as we were the only resort to have a race camp from top to bottom,” Parkhill said. “A lot of people thought we couldn’t put gates on College, that we couldn’t open Lower College. But we did. And being able to have an early season race camp makes a big statement—we’ve got snow!” Celebrating Sun Valley’s rich, historic tradition doesn’t mean
being old and stale, Parkhill tells his ski instructors. “Tradition means we have a commitment to excellence. It means pairing contemporary with the memories we see when we look at the walls in the Sun Valley Lodge. We see the ski instructors lined up there back in the 1930s and ’40s and we can’t forget that we are the original, the first destination ski resort in America.” Sun Valley’s customers don’t just return year after year. They return generation after generation, Parkhill said: “My mom came to Sun Valley on the Snowball Express. A lot of places don’t have that kind of history. We do and that’s really, really special.” Sun Valley also is internationally renowned, pointed out Nick Maricich, the SnowSports School’s technical director: “People around the world watch us.” Interestingly enough, one of the things the Sun Valley Marketing Alliance has been trying to key in on this year, according to Greg Randolph, is Sun Valley’s rich heritage as a ski bum’s paradise. That was one of the angles supposed to be dangled in front of journalists from the New York Times, SKI magazine and Outside magazine who visited Sun Valley this month as part of a publicity tour. The journalists didn’t get to experience it first-hand, though—they were put up at the luxurious Knob Hill Inn. tws
Andy Ziemba hooked-up on Mayaguana!
just anyone; it is a place of few fish, but giant fish—a place where you hunt for fish. It is a place where we sometimes had to stop fishing to marvel at humpback whales, sea turtles by the hundreds, flamingos on every barren point, endless beaches loaded with exotic shells, sea glass, fishing floats and unfathomable amounts of conch. For seven days we explored beaches and flats and not once did we find a human footprint in the sand. Our days were dictated only by the tides and our willingness to explore. We rented the only canoe on the island and a push pole, and the daily hunt for trophy bonefish was on. By week’s end we had caught multiple 10-pound fish, hooked tarpon and took shots at permit. Triggerfish were a constant, as were sharks, barracuda, blue runners, grouper, boxfish, and fleeting glimpses of the unknown. The other constant was the peace and love found with everyone we encountered. We had no key to our room, and no fears or worries other than being sure our Kalik stayed cold in the bottom of our cooler. The fabric of the island was one of family, which you can quickly become a part of with a few kind words and a big smile. Laughter is the music of the island and the sea its true mother. The island today has a shrinking population and the wilderness continues to take back what was once its own. Picabo Angler is dedicated to seeing the island and its residents find their way into a future of balance between nature and necessity. Should you ever decide to go to this place, know that you will be welcome, and know that we will help, however we can, to make sure your adventure is a success. Keep in mind that if you are an angler, there are no true guides on the island, no stores, and no equipment. You have what you bring. Just be sure you bring your smile and an open heart and mind, and you, too, will tws become “fabric of the island.”

he didn’t go in for one of those controversial Olympic sweaters created by Ralph Lauren and worn by the U.S. team (which, by the way, sold out immediately online for $595 each). Instead, Ketchum architect Linda Bergerson has been sporting her Olympic spirit this winter as she always has—with a lovely Olympian sweater she knit according to the official pattern of the Lillehammer Olympics. Dale of Norway has been producing sweaters for the Norwegian national ski teams for 58 years. And, in addition to manufacturing ready-to-wear knits, they have distributed wool yarns and patterns for the past 15 Olympics. The sweater fits Bergerson to a T— one of her grandfathers came over from Norway about 1905. He worked in the timber industry in Minnesota and Washington and eventually answered a call to build a railroad in British Columbia. “But they didn’t even provide boots, so everyone quit,” Bergerson said. Bergerson has been to Norway nine times, visiting her father and mother’s relatives. “My parents’ marriage was not a mixed marriage,” she said. “We’re Norwegians through and through.” tws
Longtime Sun Valley Employees Feted

ob Fuller seemingly needed no help figuring out what to do in retirement. On the first morning he hadn’t punched a clock in 31 years, the Stanford and Columbia University alum had already vacuumed the house, taken out the trash and changed the cat litter by 8:30 a.m. That’s the way he approached a long career with Sun Valley Company, which began on the trail crew cutting runs on Bald Mountain, included a stint as lift supervisor and ending as
assistant golf superintendent on the golf course, said his wife Lucy Fuller. “He liked his work and being outdoors. He said, ‘Work isn’t always grand, but it’s what you make of it.’ He liked serving the people he worked for and with. And then he’d come home at 4 each day and shovel the driveway, repair the fence and grade our daughters’ papers since they were homeschooled. He was one hardworking man,” said Lucy Fuller, who raised four daughters—Chloa, Hannah, Sarah and Lydia—with her husband. Rick Hickman, who retired after 21 years with Sun Valley to

spend more time in Costa Rica, taught skiing for 10 years beginning in 1971. He also served as a golf pro under Bill Butterfield before leaving to open a course in California. Unable to resist Sun Valley’s lure, he returned 10 years later to serve as night manager, then golf director, helping Elkhorn Golf Course members through a somewhat rocky transition after Sun Valley Resort purchased that course. “I came for the mountain and stayed for the summers,” he said. “I personally think Sun Valley offers the best ski mountain in the United States, given Baldy’s terrain and constant pitch.” Sun Valley’s general manager Tim Silva said numerous lodge guests took time to write how Hickman had assisted them late at night: “Time after time he went out of his way to make sure every family got the Sun Valley treatment.” Matt Murphy, Sun Valley’s human resources manager, praised Fuller for his generosity. Fuller once won a Mercedes only to donate it to be raffled off by Young Life, a Christian youth organization. “It was not uncommon to have him come to me and say, ‘Matt, we’ve got to do something for these kids who work for us.’ He was quite the employee advocate,” Murphy added. “People like Bob are what make this place run. He’s made a quiet, steady contribution to the success of this place,” added Tim Silva. tws

Wow-Students On Track To Engage Over 65% Of The Valley’s Students In Generosity
Wood River Middle School 7th Grade, gives to the Hunger Coalition
Sage School Tours St. Lukes, Comfort Young Patients project
t’s hard to believe there are only about eight weeks left before summer. But before packing for camp and signups for swim lessons start, have your kids completed their wow project? “This was such a great opportunity. Meeting the people and seeing how they work was amazing. These wonderful people need everything they can get and I am so honored that we get to help them in the ways that we can!!!” -Wood River High School, 9th grade student This has been a banner year for wow-students. At the close of the 2013 school year 53% of the valley’s K-12 students engaged in generosity experiences. While providing volunteering and gifting opportunities for close to 2000 kids in the Wood River Valley is no laughing matter, this school year is on target to far exceed the success of last year’s pilot program. With two months still remaining in this school year, wow-students has already met last year’s total engagement.
“We project that by the end of this school year we
Meet the Valley:
Pioneer Montessori, Community Library and Little Library Box project
will have engaged over 65% of the valley’s students. What’s very exciting about this number is that we are seeing a higher level of participation particularly from the high school. Last year we engaged 14% of the Wood River High School students and we just crossed 57% this year! The entire 9th grade has coordinated together and is working on a project to support Swiftsure Ranch.” says Morley Golden, President of wow-students. Wow-students credits a large part of its success to the collaborative effort from the 30 non-profits engaged in providing generosity experiences for the students. In addition, the incredible support from the valley’s 10 schools and 80 classrooms,
both public and private, have gone the extra mile by incorporating wowstudents into their programs and fostering the learning experience for their students. “This means a lot to me since I can make people happy, and feel good about what I have done. It gives me a sense of pride, and makes me want to give more to programs like Swiftsure Ranch.” -Wood River High School, 9th grade student If you are a teacher, parent, non-profit, student, or just looking to find out more information about how to get involved this school year, please contact: Louise Stumph, email@example.com
hroughout my middle school and high school career I have had the opportunity to volunteer for a number of different organizations. My favorite would have to have been volunteering at the basketball camps my high school team hosts. Every year the boys and girls varsity teams put on a camp for the aspiring elementary and middle school athletes. We get to coach scrimmages and run drills with the kids. This is an amazing opportunity because not only do we get to work with kids, but we also get to share the love of the game with these young athletes. Although twenty of us have to give up an entire week of our summer the opportunity is well worth the price we pay. GET TO KNOW ‘EM • GET THEIR STATS!

Big Business, Big Bummer
BY JONATHAN KANE
he excellent new HBO documentary Toxic Hot Seat, directed by Kirby Walker and James Redford, could do for journalism what All The President’s Men did a generation earlier. As a matter of fact, it should be required viewing for all journalism students because it is a testament to the power of the profession and the critical role it plays in our society. This is because the movie is based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning series published in the Chicago Tribune called Playing With Fire and written by three journalists who appear in the film – Patricia Callahan, Sam Roe and Michael Hawthorne. Their work – far from glamorous - began at one point and mushroomed into a conspiracy of the grandest proportions. Let’s face it – the movie’s theme is a bummer. When three of the largest chemical companies in the world team up with big tobacco to threaten the health and safety of all of us, it isn’t going to be a pretty picture. But that’s what reporters unearthed after observing the incredibly high rate of cancer
among San Francisco firefighters. What we are to learn is that there are 84,000 different chemicals in products in our country and the EPA is pretty clueless as to their effect on our health. The irony isn’t lost when we see a vintage commercial for DuPont from the fifties with happy singers and dancers extolling “better things for better living through chemistry.” It seems that tobacco companies had a problem in the fact that their product was causing houses to burn down and it wasn’t convenient for them to develop self-extinguishing cigarettes. So they blamed the fuel and, ingeniously, got the government to make a law inserting highly toxic flame retardants that don’t work into virtually all furniture and children’s products. The tipping point was the cancer in the firefighters that were marching into the toxic soup. The film will not bring a smile to your face but it will greatly inform. tws
Community “Seed Swap” On Thursday, March 27th from 6 – 7:30 pm the Hailey Public Library will host the valley’s first ever community “Seed Swap.” A seed swap is a free exchange and give away of the surplus vegetable, flower or herb seeds which local growers have either saved from their own garden or purchased from a seed company. Locally grown seeds, which have been selected for their desirable traits and robust quality are preferred but out-of-state seeds are also welcome at the swap and serve the purpose of providing genetic diversity into local gardens. This year’s seed swap will also include a brief seed saving presentation by Miles Teitge and John Caccia of the newly formed Wood River Seed Library. Don’t miss this chance to seed-up, get informed on what is happening in the seed saving world and have fun visiting with your gardening neighbors. Everyone who has seeds to swap is invited to come ½ hour early (at 5:30 pm) to set up your space, package and label your seeds for the give away that will run from 6 – 7:30 pm. Seed envelopes and markers will be provided. For more information stop by the Hailey Public Library or call Miles at 309-0509.

just ate a rainbow!” quipped Bradyn Bumgardner. “And I liked it! It was a little sweet, a little—oh, I don’t know. It’s a healthy way of eating, though, and I try to eat healthy most of the time… except on my birthday, when I get pizza.” A host of moms and other volunteers fired up the blenders last week as they treated Bumgardner and other Hemingway Elementary School students to Rainbow Day. It was Nurture’s way of acquainting the kids with the need to eat at least five vegetables and fruits a day—preferably sporting all the colors of the rainbow. “We’re telling the kids, ‘Gimme Five!’ and we’re encouraging them to branch out and
try something different. If they always eat apples and oranges and bananas, maybe next week try kiwi and pineapple,” said Missy Russell. Russell headed up the project for Nurture, a locally based non-profit organization that helps school kids and their parents improve nutrition and health through cooking classes and nutrition classes. The rainbow part of the smoothies featured cherries, carrots, banana, kale, spinach and blueberries. Yogurt and milk comprised the clouds, except in non-dairy smoothies where rice milk was used, instead. And honey served as the pot of gold. “It’s all kinds of goodness to promote healthy eating for the body,” said Gina McLaren.

The Lodge Dining Room Circa 1980
to your health
Outdoor Play Creates Foundation For Formal Learning BY JENNIFER L. SMITH
hen actress Betty White was a child, she said she wanted to be forest ranger. She couldn’t. The job was closed to women then. She finally achieved her dream at the age of 88 in 2010 when the U.S. Forest Service named her an honorary forest ranger. Today, the world is wide open for children. For example, the U.S. Forest Service today is 38 percent female. Kids are free to achieve whatever dreams are in their minds and hearts.
BY ERICH STEINBOCK
hen Earl Holding offered me the position of maître d’ at the “new” Lodge Dining Room in 1980, the pressure of opening the restaurant was on. By the time the Christmas rush landed in Sun Valley, the room was booked every night. Still, I always held a table aside for the resort regulars who would be furious if not seated right away – without reservations. Earl stopped by to announce that a fellow named Claude from the Little America in Salt Lake City would be joining the crew. Claude arrived between Christmas and New Year’s, on a soldout evening. I showed him our reservation system, asked him to stay at the maitre d’ podium and not seat anyone other than at specifically assigned tables. This allowed me to spend more time on the floor, assisting waiters and talking with the laughing, happy locals and visitors, who would be telling each other how great they skied that day. Women in expensive winter chic, candlelight, snowflakes dancing outside—the atmosphere felt like it should.
Suddenly, Claude came running with sweat dripping from his eyebrows, “There is a man at the door who insists to be seated NOW,” he panted. “All tables are occupied.” I went to meet the guest, who promptly announced, “We have a reservation and we will be seated immediately.” A quick check in the reservation book revealed that he had arrived 20 minutes early; however, I could tell that “no” would not suffice. I glanced at a nearby table where dessert plates had been removed and wine glasses and coffee cups stood empty. “Sir, would you mind if we retire you to the Redwood Room? We would like to invite you and your companions for some
after-dinner drinks.” Instead of responding to me directly, the man stretched his arm straight out, pointed his finger at the guest by the door and said, “We will only move if HE pays for our meals.” I turned my head toward the door, just in time to see the unseated guest dive at the man in the booth. Fists were flying and then a hard punch landed on the seated guest’s face. When the man rose from his seat, I held my breath. His 6-foot-3 frame towered over the aggressor. This made the assailant turn around and run out of the restaurant, with his friend running after him down the hall. The tall man’s dining companions followed the two combatants, looking shaken and uncertain. I heard later that the two became embroiled in a fistfight outside, underneath the Sun Valley Lodge’s porte cochere. The table remained empty for the rest of the night. We were all in some fear that the guests may still return. Claude had come to learn about the Lodge Dining Room; after the first night, I was not sure if he wanted any part of it. Despite his first night’s debacle, Claude Guigon moved with his family to Sun Valley and took the Lodge Dining Room to the next level as he “made” the room and created many lasting memories. As the final night approaches, Claude no doubt remembers his first night there. The restaurant will close after serving brunch on Sunday, March 30, and give way for a new much-needed spa. I am certain that, once again, Sun Valley will benefit greatly by the changes and the new facility will be world-class. One of Earl Holding’s sayings will still be worth following: “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing.” tws
Unfortunately, interest in the natural world is waning. Kids are more plugged in than ever to their electronic devices. Although this is a wonderful thing in its own way, there is absolutely no substitute for true learning in the great outdoors. Local parks and recreation programs play a crucial role in providing spaces and opportunities where kids – and their families and friends – may reap the benefits of physical and mental health, social well-being and equitable community access. It’s an undeniable truth that a connection to the natural world improves health and fosters intellectual growth. A recent article published by the National Recreation and Park Association states that “Time spent outdoors in parks and open space engages children in informal, experiential learning through play and shared experiences with peers, thereby laying the foundation for effective formal education.” In the Wood River Valley we are fortunate to have any number of outdoor recreational pursuits. Are you taking advantage of the benefits? Access to publicly owned lands managed specifically for their natural values and recreational opportunities is a deeply American institution. You can help with building trails, ridding areas of invasive species, installing interpretive and educational signs, and constructing features where humans can gather and share their appreciation of nature with one another.
