Line Up Your Putter For The Ketchum Wide Open
STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
t’s goofy golf in the finest sense of the word. The annual Ketchum Wide Open will take place Saturday in Ketchum. That’s when several restaurants and bars will challenge golfers with unique mini-golf-type holes in a free-for-all through downtown Ketchum. Participating restaurants and bars are Grumpy’s, Sawtooth Brewery, Whiskey Jacques’, The Cellar Pub, The Casino, The Sawtooth Club, Smoky Mountain Pizzeria Grill and The Cornerstone Bar & Grill. Prizes will be given for best hole, best costume, youngest golfer, oldest golfer and golfer who traveled the farthest. The Golden Putter Award will be given for the lowest score to par. Admission is $20 for a team of two. Sign-ups start at 11 a.m. at Ketchum Town Square near Starbucks. Tee-off is at noon. All scorecards must be turned in by 5:30 p.m. The event will be capped by a show featuring Blueprint with DJ Rare Groove and Count Bass D at Ketchum Town Square next to Starbucks. An awards ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. Then the party will head to Whiskey Jacques’ for more of Blueprint, an emcee and producer from Columbus, Ohio, and Count Bass D. Blueprint released a debut solo album “1988” in 2005 and has since been one of the most prolific artists around, releasing a slew of projects, including two instrumental albums titled “Sign Language” and “Chamber Music,” along with “Adventures in Counter-Culture,” “Electric Purgatory” and other recordings. Count Bass D has been an underground hip-hop musician for 20 years. There is no cover charge for the Whiskey’s show. tws
Jim Kuehn and Dr. Glen Shapiro compare koi. STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
r. Glen Shapiro pointed down into the murky mud. “There! Don’t you see it?!” Courtney Hamilton glopped through the muck, the mud splattering on her rust-colored waders. She stuck her hand into the muck and fished out… nothing. She tried again. Nothing. Finally, after about five minutes of fishing around in the muck, she pulled out an inch-long trout. All that for an inch-long trout????? “It’ll be a 20-incher one of these days!” laughed Shapiro. About 20 members of the Wood River Valley’s Trout Unlimited chapter turned out for a fish rescue at Jude and Ju-
lia Damascos’ new home on Buttercup Road last Wednesday. And they were determined to save every last fish in the acre-sized lake, which sits south of Indian Creek. “It’s a messy job but someone has to do it,” said Carmen Northen. “It feels good to give them a chance. They would die, otherwise.” Jude and Julia Damasco, who hail from Half Moon Bay, Calif., recently purchased the property, which they have dubbed “Buttercup” after the road it sits on. They’re working with the Idaho Department of Water Resources to install metering devices in the lake so they know how much water is coming in and out. And they plan on planting trees and other plants along the lake’s edge to enhance the fish habitat. In order to do this, they had to pump
water out of the lake, which used to be part of a big ranch. They called on the local Hemingway Trout Unlimited chapter to help save as many fish as possible as they drained the lake. “I don’t know what we’ll find at the bottom,” said Julia Damasco after listening to local artist Eric Eberhart tell of finding Indian arrowheads in the area. “We saw a 16-inch trout in there the other day. Sometimes I wake up wondering if we’ll find a body at the bottom!” Carmen Northen, who resurrected the local fishing chapter nine years ago, grasped the front of a long net, leading the way as she stepped into the muddy, murky lake bottom. She and others strung the net around the outside of the diminished lake, then tightened the circle, collecting fish as they

“Overnight We Became Nonpersons.” STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK
n a cold night in early November of 1938, the sound of breaking glass shattered Rose Beal’s world. “We heard the noise and looked out the window and saw men with iron bars smashing windows and going into houses and throwing furniture in the street,” said Beal, recalling Kristallnacht, or the Night of Broken Glass. “This was the worst day of my life. “We held hands in our Frankfurt home, waiting to be killed. And my mother kept saying, ‘At least we’re all together.’ What she meant was, if they were going to kill us, they would kill all of us.” In the chaos that followed, Beal said, Jewish businesses were burned to the ground. Nearly every Jewish man between 16 and 60 was captured and sent to concentration camps where most of them died. Her brother was ordered to clean up the glass. Now 93, Beal came to the Sun Valley area last Wednesday and Thursday where she shared her story with Wood River Middle School students and an audience at the Community School. Although she can walk, she chose to sit onstage in a wheelchair, her blue purse strung on the arm of the chair, an oxygen tank allowing her to say what she had to say clearly and strongly. Beal was 11 when Hitler came to power in Germany. Her mother contended she and others were too smart to listen to “this ignorant Austrian.” But her grandmother couldn’t stop crying, she said, because she knew Hitler hated Jews. “She was crying for her children, for her grandchildren.” By 1934 it wasn’t safe for Jews to hang out in the streets. Books written by Jews were burned in front of city hall. But, even with the handwriting on the wall, Jews, including Beal’s family, didn’t want to leave Germany because it was their home. “We hoped Hitler would somehow magically disappear,” Beal recounted. But it was not to be. Laws were enacted, stripping Jews of the right to hold government positions. Jewish doctors were permitted only to treat Jewish patients. Other Jews lost their jobs and had their bank accounts frozen. Jewish children were expelled from public schools, parks and municipals pools. Friends Beal had played with all her life turned on her. “Overnight we became nonpersons. Anybody could do with us what they wanted. When that happened, Mother realized we needed to get out and in a hurry,” Beal said. “What frightened me most were those rows of stormtroopers marching down the streets of Frankfurt, which had a vibrant Jewish community since the Middle Ages, banging on cobblestones. I still remember them singing, ‘When Jewish blood is spurting from our lives, things are going well.’ ”
The long wait
Beal’s mother applied for admission to America where the family had relatives in New York City. But America had a strict immigration quota and they were at the end of the line. There
would be a three-and-a-half-year wait, they were told. In 1938 Rose awakened to a loud banging at the door. Two policemen and a member of the Gestapo—the secret state police of Nazi Germany—told her family to get dressed. You can take with you whatever you can wear on your body, they said. You’re never going to come back home, they added. Down on the streets people were coming from all directions. The Beals were loaded onto big trucks and taken to the railroad station where they were loaded onto cars. Two days later, having had no food or water, they arrived at the Polish border. Drunken stormtroopers met passengers with drawn revolvers, shooting into the air. They called them names and beat the elderly who didn’t get off quickly enough with rubber nightsticks. Rose and her family were corralled into a tunnel so crowded that people died standing up because they couldn’t fall down. The stormtroopers beat a group of men who refused to stop praying. “I stood up and screamed at them to stop, to get the beatings to stop,” she recalled. As the Beals were about to pass through the tunnel, loudspeakers blared, “Due to the kindness of our Fuhrer, Adolf Hitler, you may all now go home.” Beal’s family returned to Frankfurt, only to witness the horror of Kristallnacht. Desperate to get out, they visited the American consulate again only to be told the quota had been exhausted and they’d have to wait until the next year. “We didn’t even know if we were going to live another day, let alone until next year,” Beal recalled.
not make amends for what we did to you as a people, but know that we are different people,’ ” she said. Beal didn’t share her story until the 1980s when people began publishing books denying the Holocaust. “I said I’ve got to talk and let the world know what really happened. It’s my duty to let our next generation know what it’s like when your human rights are violated. Once that happens, there’s no going back.” Beal moved to Boise to be with her son after her husband died. Her wariness of Idaho, famous for its Aryan Nations compound, was tempered when she learned the Anne Frank Memorial had just been dedicated in Boise. She has given tours at that memorial, which is featured in National Geographic’s book, “Etched in Stone,” and is one of only 11 centers to receive a
Rose Beal said her family was part of the same middle-class Jewish community in Frankfurt as Anne Frank.

A little piece of paper
In April 1939 they finally secured a 12-day ticket to America on the USS Harding. They closed the door behind them to their Frankfurt apartment as if they were coming back. At the ship, Americans took their suitcases to their cabins and showed them to the dining room where there were no signs prohibiting Jews. “It was a very strange feeling after being told we were subhuman. I didn’t know what to order and the waiter said, ‘Why not have a little of everything!’ ” Beal said she will never forget the day—Saturday, May 6, 1939—when her family sailed into New York Harbor. “We saw New York with its magnificent skyline and Lady Liberty there to greet us and we were all crying. We realized we were finally free. A little piece of paper saved our lives.” They had $2.50 between them—all the Germans allowed them to take. “But we didn’t care,” Beal recounted. “We were looking forward to new life in a new country. And this country has never disappointed me. I’ve lived a good life here; we all had a great life. We lived the American dream.” Beal got a job making $35 a month as a maid—and she was determined to be the best maid she could be. Eventually, she was got a job at Macy’s—a job she held for more than 30 years. She has returned to Germany several times, even seeing her old school reopened in 2004. “The people told us, ‘We can-

t’s been said that we were given this life because we’re strong enough to live it. Sources of Strength is a program that helps individual students feel strong enough. By doing that, we’re helping out when we see friends, family, or others stuck in an unhealthy or even life-threatening situation. It started as a peer support system for students at Silver Creek High School, then ended up becoming a group of diverse students and adults from different corners of our community. Its first project is a tree that students will put the leaves with the names of their trusted adults on, showing other students their mentors that can help them in those situations. The peer leaders in SoS include: Jordan Pulliam, Abby Shiner, Jennifer Ruiz, Kaden Rinehart, Shae Dockstader, Nick Kane, Orion Brewer and myself Journey Iverson. The strengths we try to find in younger individuals fit on a spectrum: mental health, family support, positive friends, mentors, healthy activities, generosity, spirituality, and medical access. We help students and staff fit these strengths by providing three to four sources from the spectrum and give our general support. We recognize that our voice has great power and we use it to break the silence when someone is struggling, and to connect them with the help they need. They deserve
to focus on stories of strength rather than stories of trauma. I interviewed one of the trusted adult mentors, Becky Duncan, to clarify truly what the Sources of Strength is. Q: How would you best describe Sources of Strength?
A: It was meant as a support system for students, to help prevent suicide by helping the individual find strength to overcome an obstacle.
Q: What cool projects do you have planned for the students in the near future? A: I think for right now we’re just focusing on the tree at Silver Creek [High School], but maybe in the future we will further decorate the tree during the holidays and special events that pop up during a year. Q: Can you describe what project you’re doing now? A: Well, I guess the tree at Silver Creek is sort of a launch pad for Sources of Strength so it becomes something known all around the community. I believe Sources of Strength is a program that can change the way we help our peers, friends and family. If you would like to get involved, you can visit the website at www.sourcesofstrength.org

Envisioning A Compassionate Community Courtesy Photo BY ABBY LATTO JUNIOR AT THE SAGE SCHOOL
ompassion in the Wood River Valley would be safety. It would be the comfort of turning to a stranger and talking to him or her about anything. Compassion is love, respect, safety, honesty, trust, and an abundance of other words. Compassion is not treating people how you want to be treated; it is getting to know someone well enough that you know how he or she wants to be treated. That is what compassion would look like in the Valley. Being friendly toward one another is the first step to creating a compassionate community. Getting to know someone that you have
never spoken to is a large step, as well, because by making new friends and being friendly toward one another, it makes everyone happy. A compassionate community thrives on many aspects, one being happiness. Happiness is the first step to a compassionate community because, without happiness, people will not know how to be friendly toward one another. There are millions of aspects and traits that should come together in a compassionate community, but happiness is step one because happiness creates an open environment. With an open environment, the community turns into a family, and families create the strongest communities.

nson Credle, currently a senior at Silver Creek High School in Hailey, has a true passion for the outdoor life. “I love it all,” he said. “That includes fishing, hunting, hiking, camping and riding mountain bikes with my dad.” He also likes working outdoors in his two jobs with the Bellevue Volunteer Fire Department and with Mike Beck Firewood. “For a career, I want to be outdoors, active and in a hands-on position.” Credle lives in the right place to fulfill his passions, as the Wood River Valley offers it all. He was born here and currently resides in Bellevue. “Compared to some kids who say there is nothing to do here, I enjoy it a lot. I’ve found a way to use the potential of the area to reap the benefits of what I enjoy doing. I visit my dad in Washington State where he lives in a city environment, so I go back and forth. I really prefer the small-town life – especially Bellevue. This Valley has better values and people are a lot more connected then they are in the city.” For Credle, living here is all about the opportunities that the land affords. “For me it started right off the bat,” he said. “My family would go on big holiday camping trips where my dad introduced me to fishing when I was 5 years old. My first memories were of going out Lake Creek with him and learning how to fish. I was pretty interested in it and really enjoyed the whole outdoors lifestyle. I don’t get to fish today as much as I like but when I can,
I love fishing for steelhead on the Salmon River.” At 10, Credle went on his first hunt for grouse with a friend of his mom’s. “I remember getting my first grouse and it was a great experience. I think I like hunting more than fishing because it gives me the opportunity to go into really remote areas. It’s such a satisfying experience because of the hiking and all the work you put into it. When you do get an animal, it’s really a personal achievement because you have been successful.” Credle’s favorite animal to hunt is elk. “It’s always been my favorite animal and it’s really hard to hunt. The Indians named them the ghost animal because they are so elusive and fast. Getting one is a great feeling because they are so difficult.” Credle has fond memories of the first elk he got with a buddy of his from Twin Falls. “We both had tags and we spent two to three days hiking near Antelope Creek west of Arco. We finally found a herd and ended up crawling 10 or 20 yards on our stomachs and we hid out in the trees and we both ended up getting our first elk. We had so much adrenaline that we pulled the animals out almost to our truck and then it took eight hours to pack them out the rest of the way.” Credle’s been camping with his family since as far back as he can remember. “It’s just great getting out where there are no phones and you can disconnect for a few days and be with friends goofing around and telling stories around the campfire at night. It just doesn’t get any better than that.” tws

Realty Opens New Artist’ Co-op BY KAREN BOSSICK
Silvercreek Realty is opening a new Silvercreek Art gallery showcasing Idaho artists. The co-op gallery will kick off with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday with wine and hors d’oeuvres and music by Kyle Swan. The group show at the office at Sun Valley Road and Leadville Avenue will feature paintings, ceramics, photographs and jewelry by Nolina Burge, Sue Dum-
ke, Jerry Hendershot, Karen Klinefelter, Jerri Lisk, Melissa Osgood, Susan Christensen and Rachel Teannalach. Fifteen percent of sales during June will go to The Hunger Coalition. Silvercreek Art was the brainchild of artist Rachel Teannalach and Silvercreek Realty office manager and Realtor Levie Smith. The first two months will feature 12 Idaho artists in total. In August, the gallery will feature a two-dimensional artist, along with a three-dimensional artist.
Art will change every month. Teannalach is a Boise-based artist and the Idaho Conservation League’s artist-in-residence this year. “I’m excited about this new co-op,” she said. “During the time I’ve spent in the Wood River Valley, I’ve noticed there’s a real shortage of exhibition space in between what the coffeeshops offer and the galleries like Gail Severn Gallery offer. So, this will fill a big gap.” To learn more go to silvercreekart.com. tws

And, yes, Phyllis Schlafly— the anti-feminist scold—gets as much airtime as Betty Friedan—one of the champions of the women’s movement. Listening to the conversation provokes the witty and wry college student to wonder if she has more in common with the aging matriarch of the bunch than today’s modern feminists. A reviewer for The Huffington Post said the play is about the self-delusions of people ruefully questioning the youthful life choices that they make. It’s a “new, roaringly funny satire on the effects of Internet porn on gender politics, the women’s movement and post-feminism and the fate of Western civilization,” the review added. New York Times critic Ben Brantley called it “intensely smart, intensely funny.” Gionfriddo’s writing credits include “Law & Order” and “House of Cards.” “It’s a fun comedy, and our audiences love comedies,” said director Jon Kane. “It opened to rave reviews in Los Angeles and was a big hit in New York—the reviews were outstanding.” tws

Summertime In The Valley
hhh… summertime in the Wood River Valley. Time for bike rides, picnics, sunshine… and noxious weeds. This is the time of year when noxious weeds start to re-appear and show just how persistent they are. Over the summer, this spot in The Weekly Sun will highlight noxious weeds and the work the Blaine County Weed Department and the Blaine County Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) are doing to mange and eradicate them. So… what is a noxious weed? Noxious weeds are defined as plants that are not native to a specific area, have proven to be invasive, and are harmful to animals, humans, and the environment. The State of Idaho has 64 listed noxious weeds and here in Blaine County we see quite a bit of spotted knapweed, Dalmatian toadflax, rush skeleton, and Scotch thistle. Noxious weeds affect everyone by impacting our quality of life, decreasing property values, and devastating grazing land for wildlife
John Huber and Kellen Richards of Picabo Angler served up free hamburgers and hot dogs for fishing season opening day at the Silver Creek Convenience Store. Locals and people on fishing holiday enjoyed the sunny skies and beautiful weather, free food, and the chance to catch some of the first fish of the summer season!
and livestock. The Blaine County Weed Department and the CWMA work with an integrated management plan to combat these invasive plants. The Weed Department is also a great resource for property owners (remember—property owners are obligated by law to control all noxious weeds on their property!) and can assist with weed identification, management plans, tools, and general information. Have a question? Call us at 788-5516 or check out our webpage at blainecounty.org We are also on Facebook at facebook.com/ BCCWMA. tws

Beal said 6,000 of the 17,000 who were transported with her to the Polish border made it across before it was closed and were killed at the Auschwitz concentration camp. Nine thousand tried to make a home for themselves in the border region known as “No Man’s Land” only to die of starvation and disease after war broke out. Only 200 of the 2,000 allowed to return to their homes in Germany made it out of Germany; the others died in concentration camps. Four of her grandmother’s

Idaho Human Rights Education Center Executive Director Dan Prinzing told those at the Community School that there has been a resurgence to rebuild the Aryan Nations compound in North Idaho. He also noted that a Payette accountant gained media attention last summer for espousing Aryan Nation views and secession from the government. “Our work is not done,” he said. Maren Feltman, a local Girl Scout, said she was amazed by Beal’s story: “I don’t know if I could get up and talk to a lot of people if something happened to me like that.” tws

Why, Jesus? Why? BY CHRIS MILLSPAUGH
sold my last ad of the day for the new humor publication, “The Blatant County News,” in Ketchum, checked my watch at 4:15 p.m., breathed a sigh of relief and realized I was going to make my next appointment in Hailey at 5:00 in plenty of time because, after all, it’s just a quick trip to Hailey. One hour later, I was by the Mountain View Grocery deadlocked in an impossible and impassable traffic jam. “Why, Jesus? Why?” I couldn’t move. I’d gone one mile and had listened to half of my audio book, “War and Peace.” On further investigation, I learned that Idaho Sand and Gravel had backed up their trucks and were attempting to unload their contents right in the middle of rush hour. “Why,
Jesus? Why?” There was no answer, so I put my audiocassette of the Bible on and settled back. The vehicles in front of me started to move. We moved 50 feet and then came to a halt. “Why, Jesus? Why?” I started to see other drivers slamming their fists on their windows in anger. Apparently, civilization had taken a downward turn. Passengers started bailing out to walk back to Ketchum. Children were crying and demanding to go to the bathroom. Mothers were seen taking copious amounts of pharmaceuticals and rocking back in forth in bewilderment. It was a low moment in humanity in the Wood River Valley. Then, we started to move. “Thank you, Jesus! Thank you!”
Carmen Northen resurrected the local chapter of Trout Unlimited nine years ago after moving to Hailey from Orange County, Calif., where she had been a member of a California chapter. The Hemingway Chapter Trout Unlimited group has 240 members on its mailing list. It meets the first Thursday of each monthly from Sept. 1 through May 1 in Ketchum for slide shows focusing on fishing around the world. It also is involved in numerous conservation projects. The chapter’s next project will be held the first week in June when members treat 70 fifth-graders from Woodside Elementary School to a picnic and fishing at Hayspur Fish Hatchery near Picabo.

hails in the form of a single finger. They screamed, “We were only following orders!” We regarded them as “The Elephant Man” and they pleaded, “I am not an animal!” A half hour later I arrived in Hailey and noticed many fellow travelers heading for the bars. “Why, Jesus? Why?” I had, of course, missed my appointment and now was faced with returning to Ketchum. The thought of going through all that again made me sob uncontrollably. I decided to stay in Hailey for a while. As of this writing, I am still here; however, I have decided I will try to return home after the weekend. Hailey is nice. It’s just getting there is a nightmare. I’m leaving this traffic fiasco problem with Jesus and trust he will attend to it soon.

ast year must have been a recession for plants. Because of my water crisis (it was cut off), my work ethic may have tanked. Normal became hard, so doing more than normal in order to compensate didn’t happen. This year I’m noticing all kinds of things. The plants must have thought the end of the world was near and Columbine decided not to stick their necks out. It was definitely a year for stasis, for root building, rather than external show. All the pasque flowers are up, bigger than ever. Special, rare rock-garden plants have tripled in size, especially the delicate aurinias, arenarias and veronicas. The first two resemble forget-me-nots—low, dense foliage mounds with lots of small blue flowers. I love the way

Getting Mortgage Loans With Even Less Than Perfect Credit
As hard as I try to match plant to its proper spot, there’s a lot of trial and error. Idaho is brutal. Evaporation rate is a lot higher than water loss replacement. Catalog descriptions like ‘hardy’ and ‘full sun’ mean nothing here. The Pacific Northwest flowers I get from Sequim Rare Plants need some TLC, and they’re doing fine as long as I know how to treat them. I had a veronica ‘Aztec gold.’ It was about dead. One speck of green remained at the base of its sere, brittle, lifeless stems, so I moved it to a less sunny, moister and more nutritious ground. Today, it’s the size of a soccer ball, and ready to bloom.

they caress their way around rocks (moisture traps) and other plants.
Every single plant here requires intuition, observation and action, and, oh yes, luck. If last year was lean, this year is a feast. A good example is the mountain mahogany, a tree I first saw along the Middle Fork. It’s a native evergreen, with small, fleshy, stubby leaves well adapted to the environmental extremes of flood and drought. I like it because it doesn’t look like anything else. On the river, in the afternoons, collecting firewood for the evening, we always looked for downed mahogany (the Middle Fork shoreline is a rough-and-tumble place). It is a hardwood that burns hotter than any other Idaho tree. It has been in the Habitat for seven years, it’s really starting to grow and, for the first time, it is flowering. The tiny, white, inconspicuous bloom is important because I know the tree is happy. A rocky mountain maple, here for five years, is finally starting to grow. Two robust ornamental plums scent the entire neighborhood. The wild geraniums are now small bushes. The balsamroot, emigres from Carbonate, have doubled in size. I feel like a farmer, anticipating a bumper crop. The party’s on.
etting a mortgage in order to buy a home is an important step in any person’s life. Over the past few years, potential home buyers had a difficult time getting a home loan, due to credit restrictions that required perfect credit before lenders would grant a loan. Luckily, these restrictions have now been relaxed, and banks have been increasingly willing to overlook less than perfect credit scores. This is excellent news for mortgage applicants. Recently collected data has shown that nearly 32 percent of mortgages are now going out to borrowers who have less than perfect credit, up from a previous rate of 17 percent. This shows that the housing market is undergoing a critical shift, which will help more applicants gain access to the home loans they need. The restrictions were originally put into place during the financial crisis of 2008, when the
T H E W E E K LY S U N •
number of foreclosures spiked drastically. Unfortunately, this move by lenders kept thousands of would-be home buyers from receiving their home loans. Now, however, it appears this trend is reversing. The data has shown that even borrowers who were denied financing a year ago could now be approved for a mortgage. This change comes as home values have begun to rise again, lowering the risk that borrowers will owe more on their mortgage than their home is worth. This also means there is less of a risk that borrowers will intentionally walk away from their homes. This allows lenders to become more comfortable with offering mortgages to people with lower credit scores. This applies to borrowers who are attempting to refinance as well. The data shows that homeowners who are refinancing now may have credit scores as much as 23 points lower than people buying homes. This is largely because refinancing homeowners
M AY 2 8 , 2 0 1 4
have more equity in their home, making their risk even lower than new borrowers. Don’t let worries over less than perfect credit stop you from applying for the mortgage you need to buy the home of your dreams. These loosening restrictions mean that you have a much better chance at receiving a mortgage if you apply.
Goats Return to Wood River Trail
Weed eating goats will be back on the BCRD’s Wood River Trail beginning Memorial weekend to continue a BCRD project aimed at managing noxious weed species like knapweed and leafy spurge along the path from Bellevue to Ketchum. Roughly 400 goats will work to eat up the early season knapweed before it has a chance to go to seed without the use of chemical sprays. For more information about goats on the Wood River Trail, contact Janelle Conners from BCRD, 208-578-5453 or visit www.bcrd.org, or contact Ray Holes from Prescriptive Livestock Services, 208-740-9264, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Why I Talk About Nutrition As A Critical Part Of Dog Training BY FRAN JEWELL
s a certified dog behavior consultant, I see daily how nutrition affects the behavior of our dogs. Recently, four different stories have come my way regarding nutrition and how it changed the behaviors of dogs. Three of them were with puppies that were eating food that contained grains – very high in corn and one high in rice. After changing their puppies’ food to a grain-free formula, all three puppy owners called to say they saw amazing behavior changes for the better – calmer, easier to focus, less biting/nipping and better behavior in general after just 2-3 days on the new grain-free formulas. The fourth case was with an older dog. Visiting with relatives, this dog was pooping several times a day and it was getting to be almost impossible to keep up with the cleanup for the dogsitters. The dogsitters decided to try this dog on a grain-free food that another dog was eating and, overnight, the poop was less. Even if cleanup is
not a problem for you, how many times a puppy poops in a day can have a huge effect on housetraining ease or difficulty. While you may not see an immediate behavior difference in an older dog being switched to a grain-free formula, we need to understand that removing toxins from a dog’s diet, after having eaten grains for many years, may take more time to see.
Why do I say toxins? Because almost all rice and corn in the United States is genetically modified and infused with chemicals to prevent pest and mold damage. I could venture to say that almost no dog food company goes to the length to assure that its grains are organic. Another toxin reality is that some companies actually coat their foods with plastics so the kibble will have a longer shelf life! Imagine what that
will do to your dog over time! The further concern is that dogs to not possess the digestive enzymes to digest grains. So, what they get from grains is usually just the sugar/carbohydrate without any of the claimed nutritional values. What that means is frantic behaviors, just like in children that eat diets high in sugar. This is also part of the reason there is so much more poop. When I cycle my dogs through raw food, there is so little poop to clean up, it’s almost hard to find in the yard. That means to me that my dogs are utilizing almost as much as they eat. One resource to look at is a website called DogFoodAdvisor. com. Dog Food Advisor actually rates dog foods, and their reasons why, so you can make educated choices for your dog. All of this is just “food for thought” and why I always ask new clients what they are feeding their dogs. So often it helps us with growing puppies to have fewer behavior problems, both with frantic and wild behaviors and with housetraining, because the pups are simply not having to go as much.
Invite To Bite BY FRAN JEWELL
o many times I visit people with puppies that are now almost a year old and are still nipping or mouthing their owners or guests. As puppies, the owners thought that the mouthing was sweet affection or that the nipping was acceptable because the dog was “just teething.” Now that the dog is older, it’s not much fun anymore. What we allow as a puppy is imprinted for the dog as an “okay” behavior later on. When I see a puppy over six months old that is still nipping and mouthing, it is a RED FLAG to me that this dog has not learned proper “bite inhibition” either from her litter, her mother, or her human family, as well as proper respect for people.
Improper “bite inhibition” can lead to a dog using their mouth to get what they want, or to stop you from doing something they don’t want. Further down the road this can also lead to inappropriate mouthing with guests, children or elderly family members. A guest that is afraid of dogs might be offended enough to think about legal action if a dog even attempts to mouth them, regardless of what the motivation was behind the mouthing. A parent of a visiting childhood friend may also be offended and not allow their child to return to visit your home. Someone elderly with very thin skin can actually be injured by what was thought to be innocent mouthing or a quick, playful nip. I have had friends whose dog innocently mouthed them that ended up needing stitches.
Steve Fairbrother DVM Board Certified ABVP, Equine practice Box 2766 Hailey, ID 83333 208 788 3424 Thanks for 30 years, looking forward to many more!
YIKES! So, what do we do to prevent this? NEVER INVITE THE BITE! 1. Do not allow any puppy to nibble your fingers, even if they are soft and gentle. Replace your finger with an appropriate toy. 2. NEVER roughhouse with your hands near the dog’s mouth, allowing them to mouth or growl at your hands. 3. Teach a strong “Leave It” command so the dog learns “good things happen when I take my mouth OFF.” 4. Give dogs plenty of good things to chew on to get that chewing energy out productively. 5. Have children play with the dog using a toy on a 3-5-foot rope while you SUPERVISE. Some dogs may need more persuasion than others. The training method that is right for your dog depends entirely on your dog. Seek a qualified, certified instructor that has plenty of experience and many different tools to recommend that is right for YOUR dog.

ith opening day come and gone it’s time to fish every day! Conditions continue to be less than what we would want as the ideal, but then again when Mother Nature is calling the shots we take what we get. So, while Silver Creek flows continues to bubble up slowly and the Wood and Boise Rivers continue to comeback from last year’s fires, anglers should take this opportunity to explore. If you are fishing Silver Creek the Brown Drakes are out on all the downstream waters. This is an evening hatch and spinner fall. We have tons of flies and are open until 8:00 p.m. If you haven’t seen this event, it’s a must do! The upstream water, although low, is ramping up with Baetis and PMDs. With the forecast for bright, sunny days expect the best fishing to be in the evening and into the darkness. Mornings should provide a flurry of activity as well, and like last season we are already seeing a decent amount of Damsel Flies. Green Drakes should also show in the upstream waters this week. The Green Drake loves the warm weather and hot days, anglers shouldn’t go to the Creek without this pattern right now. When the midday breeze kicks in be sure to have your ants and beetles. The Big Wood is still running well over 1000 CFS making this a relative tough flow to fish. The clarity needs to get better, but when the river drops expect great fishing. With the warm days the river has been rising, but watch the CFS and as soon as you see the graph turn and head back down, expect the clarity to follow. When this happens the next big even it usually a plethora of Stoneflies and Green Drakes. The Lost is also at high water. Every year we tell anglers to watch what is happening on the Big Wood and then expect the same to happen on the upper Lost River a week later. This year with the ash in the Big Wood, this rule may be moot. It may take a drive and some crossed fingers to time the first really good days on the upper Lost this year. The South Fork of the Boise is open with low flows, but they should be cranking the river up to 1200 CFS very soon. Check the flows before you go! It’s going to be a great week! Happy Fishing Everyone!

Can You Say “Gratitude?” A Lot Did. STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
“Gratitude.” That’s the word that summed up the 17th annual Sun Valley Wellness Festival held Thursday through Monday at Sun Valley Resort, according to Elisabeth Grabher, president of the Sun Valley Wellness Institute board of directors. “I’ve heard that word over and over through the festival,” she said. “Diana Nyad started it, talking about how she started swimming with ego. When she finally made her swim from Cuba to Florida, she gave gratitude with every stroke. Panache Desai continued the use of the word. Arielle Ford evoked it. Everywhere I went it kept popping up. So this is the ‘gratitude festival,’ ” Grabher

said. This year’s festival featured a look at everything from GMOs and herbicides to death and dying. Kids got their hands soapy turning wool into felt. And those who perused the Wellness Expo had the opportunity to have their energy, or aura, photographed. Kathy Belknapp, of Boise, said this was her first visit to the Sun Valley festival, after having attended a wellness festival in Jackson, Wyo., which was discontinued in 2011. “It had some big-name speakers and was reasonably priced,” she said, referring to a festival that spotlighted food guru Michael Pollan and dog whisperer Cesar Millan. “I find this one is more intensive, with longer, more in-depth presentations and workshops.” tws
Soundbites From The Sun Valley Wellness Festival BY KAREN BOSSICK
•Instead of engaging in the act of authentic love, you are mood massaging. —Panache Desai, who recorded “Awakening Your Soul Signature: Reclaiming and Living Your Divine Purpose” •This is the time—the day you have to take action to move forward. There are no time outs. Go out and do the work and become it. —Gary Quinn, a life coach for Academy Award winners, Grammy winners and Olympic gold medalists
•My wife and I travel around to all kinds of events. This is a very special one. —Tommy Rosen, addiction recovery expert * Every morning when you wake up, take five minutes to set an intention that lays down your brain pathway. —James Rouse, author of the new book scheduled to come out in September, “Think, Eat, Move, Thrive.” •The African clawed frog survived what brought about the demise of the dinosaurs. Now, 70 percent of them are
in decline. That should be a warning bell.” —Dr. Tyrone Hayes, who studies the human and environmental consequences of GMOs, herbicides and chemical fertilizers •As women, we turn down our ‘wanter’ and say, “I shouldn’t want that.” Instead, we settle for what we get. —Teresa Leftenant, author of “Reinventing Her: Helping Women Plan For, Pursue and Capitalize on Your Next Chapter”

Not A Fingernail Faster STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
Diana Nyad achieved a longheld dream of swimming from Cuba to Florida last year at the age of 64. But her journey toward becoming a champion swimmer began at age 5. That’s when her father—a Greek-Egyptian who was “larger than life”—opened up Webster’s unabridged dictionary and pointed to the word “naiad.” “Diana,” he said in a manner that evoked a Shakespearean drama. “I’ve been waiting for this day. Now that you’re 5, you will understand this most important thing that I’m telling you. You are special. In Greek mythology—my people—naiad is the nymph who swims in the lakes and ocean for the gods to protect them.” “I didn’t hear the word ‘swimmer.’ I was a ‘champion,’ ” Nyad told more than 700 people during the keynote speech at the Sun Valley Wellness Festival Friday night. “I walked along with my
shoulders a little higher. I pushed people out of my way. I was a champion,” she said. “When I got older, my coach—
champion swimmer.’ ” Her parents accused her of being a fanatic when it came to swimming.
Diana Nyad told more than 700 people Friday night that it’s not so much about what you get when you achieve your dreams. It’s who you become.
an Olympic coach—asked, ‘What’s your name? I told him and he said, ‘You’re going to be a
Nyad replied, “The word ‘fanatic’ means I’m going to be successful.”
“I was an unstoppable freight train living in their house.” The freight train came close to derailing, however, when Nyad tried out for the 1968 Summer Olympics to be held in Mexico City. Following some personal setbacks, a 17-year-old teammate recognized that her head was not in the game. She pulled Nyad aside and reminded her that she had done 50 pushups—not 49—every day to get to this point. That she’d gotten up at 4:30 every morning to get to this point. When you finish your race, she added, don’t look at the time or how well you did compared with the other swimmers. Just run your race so that you can close your eyes at the end and say, “I couldn’t have done it a fingernail faster.” “If you can say that and mean it, whatever happens will be alright,” said Nyad. Nyad didn’t make the U.S. Olympic Swim Team. But, shortly afterwards, she launched a new career—that of marathon swimming. “I liked marathon swimming in that it’s kind of like a microcosm of life—it’s never smooth… And you don’t give up. That’s what I love about it,” said Nyad, an animated and funny speaker. When Nyad was 9, Fidel Castro came to power in Cuba and, like other Floridians, she got caught up in the mystique of salsa and everything Cuban. She stood on the beach asking her mother where Cuba was and her mother pointed across the ocean and said, “It’s so close you could almost swim there.” Nyad made her first attempt at 28 and was turned back by strong ocean currents that took
her off course. When she saw other people try and not make it, the lure to try again tugged at her. “It was the Mount Everest of our sport, waiting to be conquered,” she said. Finally, at 60, she decided to try again, even though she hadn’t swum for 30 years. Over the next few years, she made three attempts. Each time, something—jellyfish stings, lightning storms, asthma attacks—kept her from reaching her goal. She decided to make a fifth attempt in 2013 even though her best friend said, “Diana, it’s flat out impossible. If anyone could have done it, you would’ve done it.” But Nyad clung to a quote from poet Mary Oliver: What are you going to do with your one wild and precious life? On the morning of Aug. 31, 2013, she looked across “the monstrous ocean” and told herself, ‘Find a way. If you want to get to the other side, you will find a way.” After 38 hours of swimming she saw the lights of Key West on the horizon. But she couldn’t celebrate yet. She still had 15 hours of swimming left in her 110-mile journey. And when she reached the shore, she closed her eyes and told herself, “I couldn’t have swum any of it a fingernail better.” “Can you believe what she did?” Elisabeth Grabher, president of the Sun Valley Wellness Institute, said. “She teaches us to stick with what we believe in.” tws
Neighbors... Bad Blood Rating: BY JONATHAN KANE
f course, it’s everyone’s worst nightmare. You’ve invested your life savings into a new home and you’re ready to nest as a young couple with your first child. Your dream is that a gay couple will buy the vacant house next door or maybe a TacoBell will move in. But— surprise, surprise—your new neighbors are a frat house, but not just any frat house—the new millennium version of Animal House. That’s the premise of the new, funny comedy Neighbors that pits a young couple – Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne — and a very cute baby, against a studly Zac Efron and a legion of wild party animals. Besides the normal array of pot, sex and bodily function humor that earns the film

an R rating, Neighbors carries a little weight and character development that sets it apart from the rest of big-studio comedies. The couple, in this case, sees the end of irresponsible childhood in their frat-house neighbors and Efron, who doesn’t seem to have much of a future himself, sees the dead end that awaits him in Rogen. Despite the hilarity, the film has a bit of a heart and that in itself is refreshing. The movie is directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) from a script by Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien. Stoller seems to have a deft hand at comedy, balancing crudeness and tenderness with ease. The film also benefits greatly from cameos – especially Lisa Kudrow as the publicity-minded dean of the college. Neighbors is not a great film, but it stands head and shoulders above the others in its genre. tws

Brain Stress BY DR. MARIA MARICICH
he brain is the master control system for the entire body. It sends electrical impulses through nerves to all parts of the body, including limbs, organs, tissues and cells. It also receives signals back from these parts. When there is stress in the environment, the adaptation process the brain orchestrates throughout the body changes and the brain will send different signals to the body. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to enhance the sensorimotor integration of the brain with the body. Experts agree that increased stress cycles in the body produce the environment for dis-ease (lack of ease) and eventually disease within the body. Stress can come from a variety of sources including the mental/emotional realm, chemical effects and, of course, physical events. These stressors cause the body to go into fight-orflight syndrome. Physiologically, systems in the body are altered, especially the cardiovascular, endocrine and immune systems. The brain and the sympathetic nervous system regulate this physiological response. All stress is brain stress, because the brain is the organ that interprets the stress from its environment and responds to it. Stress means the brain has to work harder, which in turn means it will wear out sooner.
Continued... Carol Sinnott Robert & Alice Lane Norman and Joyce Friedman Lorey Rainey Gail Stickney Lia Johnson Karin & John Davies Nancy Parry Chip Fisher
Increased sympathetic tone signaled from brain stress causes a release of stress hormones such as adrenalin, epinephrine and cortisol. This is the same response we get when we are anxious or nervous. It’s called the fight-or-flight response. That is totally okay if it is for a short period of time; however, when the stress lasts days and months and years, as it does in most of our lives, it exhausts the body systems and causes a state of dis-ease to manifest. Furthermore, these “stress hormones” are known to kill cells in the brain! As Americans, we seem to just accept that we live stressful lives, not ever stopping to take note that we are driving fast down the wrong road. Often it is only when we get a serious wake-up call, like being diagnosed with cancer, that we realize our life
is important enough to make changes and that we had better make them fast.
Light touch chiropractic adjustments have been shown to normalize spinal afferent/ efferent processes to their proper resting tone. This is like hitting the reset button on the computer when it is malfunctioning. The computer is allowed to pause and reprocess itself, sometimes even releasing old stuck emotions. These very specific light touches applied along the spine stop the stress response and restore normal hormonal and cardiovascular function to the body, thus allowing the body to reset itself and begin healing the damage that was done due to chronic stress cycles. Don’t wait to get a serious wake-up call. Take responsibility for your health today by making time for selfcare. Light touch chiropractic can help with back and neck pain but, more importantly, it can help restore balance to a stressed nervous system.

Pssst, Kids Check Out The New Sand Box STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
The new perennial garden is in. And the Sawtooth Botanical Garden is within $17,000 of getting enough funds to build its new garden pavilion for weddings and other events. But it’s sand—pure sand— that has toddlers flocking to the garden a few miles south of Ketchum.
The play area on the west side of the greenhouse was made possible by a donation by John Dondero, whose son Steve Dondero is on the board of the Sawtooth Botanical Garden. “He said sandboxes are good because you can give a kid a bucket and a shovel and keep them busy for hours,” said John Balint, chair of the garden board. “It’s a perfect location because it’s in the shade.”
A local woodcarver will add to the plot by carving wood in the shape of the Sawtooth Mountains so kids can learn the names of the peaks.
A grand opening for the sandbox will be held Saturday, June 7, in conjunction with the garden’s Native Plant Sale. A grand opening for the new formal garden will be held June 18. But kids and their families aren’t waiting for a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Steve Dondero walked through the sandbox with his 4-year-old daughter Tessa a few days ago. He said he can’t wait to bring his 9-month-old daughter Josie to the sandbox.

A Different Kind Of Star Struck STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK
It was a dark and cloudy night ahead of the May Camelopardalids meteor shower. But Hemingway Elementary School’s technology teacher Scott Slonim managed to treat two audiences of children and adults to a view of the stars, nevertheless. Stargazers crawled into a portable planetarium set up in the Hailey Public Library in partnership with the Environmental Resource Center. Slonim showed them the stars according to Greek constellations. And he showed Native American constellations as he told how Native Americans used the stars to navigate the world. “When the bunny was at a certain place in the sky, the Native Americans knew it meant hunting season,” he said. When the bear was in a certain position, they knew he was coming out of hibernation; hence, spring was on the way. And to find their way home, he said, Native Americans relied on stars other than the North Star because they framed the stars in different pictures than the Big Dipper. At the end, Slonim passed around a piece of a shooting star, or meteorite, the size of a golf ball. “Now when you see a shooting star you can tell people you’ve held one,” he said. “Pretty cool,” said Elias Prerino. “I knew some already. Now I know more.”
Scott Slonim shows the mechanics that create a night sky inside the portable Star Lab.
The shooting star is smooth—and reddish in color.
