New School Super Relentless

A HOOTING OBSESSION

Dr. Gwen Carol Holms STORY AND PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

B

laine County School District’s new superintendent says she was given a personalized license plate that said: “Relentless.” “I push and push… I think it was a compliment,” she said, adding that she is relentless, even “rabid” about ensuring that all children receive an excellent education. Holmes was named the new superintendent on Thursday following a nationwide search that turned up applications from 46 of the 50 states. She will begin work in July. The vote of the school board was unanimous. Board Trustee Liz Schwerdtle said Holmes brings an excitement, professionalism and warmth to her position: “Her entire career has been motivated by a love and respect for children.” Holmes is currently chief academic officer of Alexandria Public Schools in Alexandria, Va. Armed with two master’s degrees and a doctorate of education in educational administration, she also worked with schools from the Bering Strait to Guam as chief operating officer of the Success for All Foundation and assistant professor of education at Johns Hopkins University. She began her career as an elementary school teacher, worked as a reading specialist, math specialist, Title 1 specialist and principal in two schools. Holmes squared off against co-finalist Dr. Richard Canfield Tuesday night before a hundred parents and teachers at Wood River High School. They were asked to fill out surveys offering their observations on the candidates’ strengths, weakness, personal qualities and professional attributes, such as problem-solving skills, to help the school board form its decision. The two candidates never saw each other. The school board even took the precaution of scheduling a 15-minute intermission between their appearances before the public so they could usher one off the campus of the Wood River

ou might say Kathleen Cameron gives a hoot. For the past 10 years, she’s dropped everything and taken off, camera and tripod in hand, whenever someone has spotted an owl. Her obsession has taken her along 6,000 miles of highway—as far west as Pearl, Idaho; east to the Centennial Mountains; and as far south as the South Hills below Kimberly. It’s resulted in some stunning footage in a 35-minute film she calls “Connecting With Owls.” Cameron will have a free screening of the film at 6 p.m. Friday at the Wood River High School Performing Arts Theater on the Community Campus in Hailey. Cameron will talk about the making of the film and field questions. She will have DVDs of the film for sale. The film features great gray owls, longeared owls, Western screech owls, boreal owls, sawhill owls, even tiny 6-inch-tall flamulated owls the size of a pop can. Slow motion shows the flow of wings, how the owl seems to float in the air. And Cameron’s lens captures the way owls close their eyes so viewers can see the translucent third eyelid—the nictitating membrane—cleaning the eye. The film zeros in on a pygmy owl

moment between a great gray owl mom checking in on her chicks. And it shows an owl appearing to do a head stand as it stretches. It features an owl doing some house-

cleaning—odors draw predators. And it captures a Western screech owl screeching for a mate. There’s a cameo appearance by a snowy owl, which rarely frequents Idaho. There’s footage of the Northern hawkowl, which created a stir when it was sighted in Elkhorn in 2004, snatching a mouse off the snow. It even shows a short-eared owl clapping its wings as it flies as part of a courtship ritual. “It’s a great introduction to owl behavior. I didn’t have any idea, for instance, that short-eared owls clap their wings,” said Cameron, who got a degree in art and mass communication at William Patterson University in New Jersey. “I kept the narration simple so it would appeal to all generations. I even offered tips on how to find owls—I don’t know how many people I’ve talked with who have told me, ‘I’ve only seen owls in the zoo.’ ” Cameron premiered the film at the inaugural Hagerman Bird Festival in February after spending 60

Movie Review

Superhero Overload

Rating: BY JONATHAN KANE

W

hat can one say about the Marvel comic book universe that hasn’t already been said? In Hollywood terms, it’s an unstoppable juggernaut that, like its lead protagonists, takes no prisoners. For this critic, I’ve pretty much had enough. I thought the Avengers movie was pretty poor and I thought Ironman 3 was ridiculously bad. The first Captain America movie was okay but did we really need more? If all you’re looking to do is make big bucks, then the answer is a resounding yes! Captain America first won the hearts of comic book readers during the Second World War, battling Nazis. In the first movie he comes out of a 70-year sleep (he now looks pretty good at 95) and teams up with the other agents of SHIELD, protecting the world. In the new Winter

urday and Sunday. “It’s a story about the power of friendship and sacrifice. The book was a big part of my childhood and I think it was of just about everyone—I played golf with a few men in their 60s and 70s the other day and they all said they’d like to see it. It’s a story that grabs at your heart,” said Jamey Reynolds, who is not only acting in the play but constructing a county fair for the stage. The story by E.B. White tells of a fun-loving pig named Wilbur and his friendship with a scholarly barn spider named Charlotte. When Wilbur is in danger of being slaughtered by the resident farmer, Charlotte writes messages in her web, praising Wilbur in hopes of persuading the farmer to let him live. “For a kid’s book, it has a sad ending, but you learn about real friendship in the process and how real friendship can involve laying down your life for your friend,” said Patsy Wygle, who is co-directing the play with her husband Keith Moore. “And in this case we have some wonderful music by Charles Strouse (who provided the music for “Annie” and “Bye Bye Birdie”).

Annabelle Lewis, a 13-year-old middle school student, said she likes the story itself—namely, how Charlotte the spider helps Wilbur, sacrificing herself in the process. “It teaches that friendship— having good friends—is important,” she said. “We have to think of other people.” tws

The cast features Tony Barriatua, Trish Lewis, Natalie McStay, Logan Pilaro, Jamey Reynolds, Joy Bond, Keith Moore, Patsy Wygle, Jamie Wygle, Sonnet Gripkey, Tatum Fuller, Max Albright, Annie Lewis, Noelle LaFleur, Christine Estep, Raine Filbert, McKenzie Ellison, Annabel Webster, Liv Nelson, Wyatt Root, Ella Boice, Caroline Estep, Griff Connelly, Nick Smith, John Lewis, Levie Smith, Tatum Vontver and Emma Leventhal. The show is directed by Patsy Wygle and Keith Moore with musical direction by Dorinda Rendahl, choreography by Sherry Horton, set design by Jamey Reynolds and lighting design by K.O. Ogilvie.

What: “Charlotte’s Web: The Musical” When: 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday Where: nexStage Theatre, 120 S. Main St., Ketchum Tickets: $25 for adults and $10 for children, available at 208-726-4TKS and at the door.

Soldier, Cap (a boring Chris Evans) even finds Nazis to battle in 2014. That’s just one of the many mangled plot elements of what is supposed to be a political thriller. There’s even Robert Redford on board as the bad guy, himself a veteran of some of the best political thrillers ever made. Redford wants to take over the world (I guess) from inside the U.S. government and has enlisted an assassin played by Sebastian Stan. But the Winter Soldier has a secret tie to Cap’s ’40s past but I don’t dare reveal that here. The movie is directed badly by the brothers Anthony and Joe Russo off a dreadful script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. During one of the bad action sequences is the immortal dialogue, “How do I know the good guys from the bad guys?’ To which Cap replies, “If they’re shooting at us, they’re the bad guys.” That’s why you get paid a million dollars in Hollywood—to make up stuff like that. tws

It brings a whole new dimension to the story,” said Keith Moore. “It’s a wonderful adaptation that brings the beloved classic alive.” The musical, with its hand-clapping, toe-tapping hoedown, uses several adults and a host of children to tell it. “We have some talented 13-yearold singers, so this is giving them a chance to shine,” said Wygle. Ten-year-old Sonnet Gripkey has been practicing her snorting, as young Wilbur. Tatum Fuller, a 13-year-old middle school student, will take over the snorting as Wilbur matures in the play. “He’s really goofy, funny, silly, over the top,” she said. “I like pigs,” chimed in Gripkey.

The Night Alive CHESS TOURNAMENT Page 9

NO BONES ABOUT IT Page 10

The nexStage Theatre is proud to announce a reading of Conor McPherson’s new play, “The Night Alive,” as part of their ongoing series of top contemporary playwrights. The reading will be held on Wednesday, May 7 at 6:30 p.m. and admission is free. Complimentary wine and cookies will be served. The running time is approximately 75 minutes. The cast includes Keith Moore, Scott Creighton, Steve D’Smith, Charlotte Hemmings and Ben Flandro. The reading will be directed by Jon Kane. McPherson is one of Ireland’s preeminent playwrights and is the author of The Weir and The Seafarer. The play debuted in London in June 2013 and received rave reviews and had a sold-out run in New York City that ended this past February. The New York Times said, “Something bright and beautiful pulses in the shadows of the extraordinary new play by Conor McPherson… transcendent!” Tommy’s not a bad man. He’s getting by, renting a rundown room in his uncle Maurice’s house, just about keeping his ex-wife and kids at arm’s length and rolling from one get-rich scheme to another with his pal, Doc. Then one day he comes to the aid of Aimee, who’s not had it easy herself, struggling through life the only way she knows how. Their past won’t let go easily. But together there’s a glimmer of hope they could make something more of their lives. Something extraordinary. Perhaps.

hloe Lichtenberg has a desire to help others – especially in the classroom. She says she “likes to help kids expand knowledge. Teaching is really my passion and it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do.” Upon graduation, the Wood River High School senior plans to travel to Mexico and spend the year teaching English to elementary school students. At Wood River, Lichtenberg has kept herself busy by taking Advanced Placement statistics, language and composition, micro and macroeconomics, psychology, environmental science and government. She is also a member of the student union, president of the Environmental Club and captain of the track team. Born in California, Lichtenberg moved here at the age of 5 and has lived in Hailey ever since. “I really like it here and I’m so glad that we moved. Where we lived was really urbanizing and the schools were deteriorating and the crime rate was really rising. We came here on a vacation and my parents started looking at homes and we packed up and moved here. It’s been a blessing. There are so many opportunities here, like in education, that I can’t put it into words. The scenery makes you think you’re on a movie set, and cities give me an eerie feeling. Here you know where you are. Other than the cold, I like that it is a small community and that people care about one another.” Lichtenberg will soon be living in a city of 1 million people—Merida, on the Yucatan peninsula—20 minutes from the beach and close to the ruins at

Chichen Itza. She’s lived there the past two summers with her boyfriend, who she met when he was an exchange student in the valley. Sixty percent of the population is of Mayan descent and it’s been called the cleanest and safest city in Mexico. “It’s really beautiful, especially the way it flows together. They have also tried to be independent because it’s a very different culture from the rest of Mexico. Unlike here, it’s pretty busy at night and the city is so beautiful with its bright colors and structures that date back to the 1500s. It’s really special.” For Lichtenberg, teaching English there is just following her calling in life. “I’ve known for a long time that I want to be a teacher, despite the warnings that there is a lot of burnout and that it doesn’t pay very well. I’ve always assisted my classmates, which I enjoy because I love to help other people. Right now I’m in the teaching academy at the high school where I’m learning the basics of teaching elementary education. For my senior project I job-shadowed a teacher in the Head Start program and twice a week I go to Hailey Elementary and intern in the Special Education program. It’s great because I work with all the grades and it’s not what people assume it to be. There are just different factors in their lives that have affected them. They need more assistance to help them learn and to work independently.” You can be sure that Lichtenberg is just the right person to help. tws

Honoring Through The Bluebird Trail The Calm Before The Deluge habitat for non-humanity

BY KAREN BOSSICK

G

irl Scouts from Troop 230 will build a Bluebird Trail to honor the memory of their friend and classmate Nolan Kreczkowski and carry on Nolan’s passion for helping others. Nolan died February 17 following a snowmobile accident. To that end, the scouts are showing a new documentary film called “Bluebird Man” from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday in the Minnie Moore Room of the Community Campus. The film recounts the story of Al Larson, a Prairie, Idaho, man who has helped thousands of bluebirds by creating a trail of bluebird houses across southern Idaho. Guest speaker Brian Sturges, a Wood River Middle School teacher and local birding expert, will discuss the bluebird, which is Idaho’s state bird, and how European species often out-compete them for nesting sites because the bluebirds are not as aggressive. Wildlife biologist Kaz Thea will discuss how people can help bluebirds and other cavity nesters by covering pipes on campground outhouses. Birds that nest in the pipes often can’t turn around and end up dying.

Sturges is consulting with the Forest Service about where to put the Nolan Kreczkowski Memorial Bluebird Trail. Most likely, it will be past Galena Summit in the Sawtooth Valley, which offers good habitat for the birds, said Leslie Feltman, who volunteers with the scouts. “Depending on the habitat, we might be able to place one closer,” she added. Already constructed houses cost about $10 each. About 25 houses have been donated so far. The houses are fairly simple to build (see nabluebirdsociety.org/ nestboxes/eastwestbox.htm). They need to have a certain-size hole and no perch. They also need to be able to be opened so that the Girl Scouts can clean them out every year. Five Smiley Creek residents have volunteered to help maintain the homes. “I hope everyone will come,” Feltman said. “Nolan was such a fine young man and touched all of our hearts.” For more information, contact Leslie Feltman at 720-3024, lfeltman@cox.net or Lori Hayes at 720-4435 or lhayes@smithoptics.com. tws

T

hese are momentous times, and I’m not just talking about the various floral and faunal emergences of spring. The latter alone gives rise to dozens of metaphors and significances, connections to realities far removed from a clump of blooming crocuses. Once a garden like this picks up momentum, it becomes a responsibility, just like having to look after children. This is aside from a love for the living, or about the benefits that accrue to oneself, which are legion. I have to tend to it all. The project owns me, and it’ll be a long time before it grows up and I can say, “OK, you can take care of yourself now.” The garden picks up momentum, and by June it’s pedal to the metal. A better analogy is a river trip on raft or kayak. Mostly, you row or paddle,

drift, and then the river takes you and sweeps you away like some uncontrollable passion. Spring may be about timing and ‘nature’s rhythms,’ but it kicks the hell out of my sense of time. Any intensive, absorbing activity alters our sense of time. The rapids may only last a couple of minutes, but it can seem much longer. I go out to the Habitat to do a few quick things and the next thing I know, over two hours have passed. Something similar happens to me, usually at dawn. I get a thought or a good turn of phrase, and it wakes me. A chemical change takes place in the brain. It all starts slowly. I, ever the naïf, think I can just jot down a couple of things and return to sleep, or to a normal life, like having breakfast, reading the paper and thinking about vacuuming. Forget about it. Once the door is open, the onrush of

thoughts is unstoppable. As soon as I grab the bedside pen and notepad, I am doomed, swept away by a trickle that becomes a torrent. There’s all kinds of non-sequitur debris, and time disappears. Four a.m. becomes 11 a.m., and that’s if I look up. Finally, the flood recedes, I wash out, calm returns and I come face to face with a mess, like in the wake of any calamity. I never experience the polar opposite of this, so I get my cake but avoid the weight gain. It looks like a good year for bulbs and rhizomes. Everything is up, the common and the exotica. The complexity that is nature is in full display, but the explanations elude me—why this spring but not the last? Now that I can see the leaves poking out of the ground, I can feed and water. This is the only time of year they like water. The rest of the year, water just promotes rot and mold. Food and water will make the blooms last longer and encourage the growth of bulblets. Gee, they’re almost human. tws

Social Security And Your Retirement Picture?

BY KAREN BOSSICK These goosefoot violets are among a dozen wildflowers currently in bloom along the Hidden Valley and Bullion Connector trails in Bullion Gulch west of Hailey. It’s unusual for violets in that they grow on south-facing, rocky sagebrush-covered slopes rather than moist places.

I nvesting in your future Stifel understands that investing is based on trust. We understand that investing is not just money, but the foundation that shapes your future…a secure retirement, a college education for your children, the stability of your business. Success takes planning and commitment, and Stifel is committed to providing quality products and services in the quest to reach your goals.

If you’re counting on Social Security to provide you with a portion of your retirement income, there are numerous factors that may affect the amount of benefit you stand to receive. When Can You Start Receiving Benefits? Provided you qualify for Social Security benefits, the earliest you can begin taking Social Security benefits is age 62. The amount of benefit you receive is determined by the age at which you begin taking benefits in relation to your full retirement age, as established by the Social Security Administration. Your full retirement age can range from 65 to 67, depending on the year in which you were born. Once you reach full retirement age, you are entitled to receive 100 percent of your benefits. If you begin receiving benefits before your full retirement age, your benefit amount will be permanently reduced throughout your lifetime. If you delay the start of benefits until after you’ve reached full retirement age, you can receive a larger monthly benefit throughout retirement, and the amount of benefit increases for each year you delay, up to age 70. Taxability of Benefits Taxes are another factor to consider. Generally speaking, if Social Security benefits are your only source of income, you likely will not have to pay taxes, but if you have other sources of income, such as a salary or investment income, your benefits

In the year in which you reach full retirement age, the Social Security Administration deducts $1 for every $3 you earn above $41,400 until the month you reach full retirement age. Once you’ve reached full retirement age, you can continue to work and earn as much as you can without being penalized. Regardless of your age, you will still be required to pay FICA taxes on your earnings if you continue working while receiving Social Security benefits. For more information on Social Security benefits, contact the Social Security Administration, and to get a better idea of how your benefits will fit in with your overall retirement picture along with your other retirement investments, please consult your financial advisor.

may be subject to taxes, depending on the amount of income and your filing status. To determine the extent that your Social Security benefits will be taxed, you’ll need to calculate your provisional income, which includes your adjusted gross income, plus tax-exempt interest income, plus 50 percent of your annual Social Security benefits. Social Security benefits are taxed at either 0 percent, 50 percent, or 85 percent, depending on your provisional income. Single individuals will pay 0 percent on provisional income up to $25,000, 50 percent from $25,000 to $34,000 and 85 percent for provisional income greater than $34,000. Married couples filing joint returns will pay 0 percent up to $32,000, 50 percent from $32,000 to $44,000, and 85 percent for provisional income greater than $44,000. The dramatic jump from 0 percent to 50 percent and from 50 percent to 85 percent is often referred to as the “tax torpedo,” as even a modest increase in income can cause a substantial increase in taxation. If you do have to pay taxes on your Social Security benefits, you can elect to make quarterly estimated tax payments to the IRS or have federal taxes withheld from your benefits. Finally, your benefits may be subject to state tax. Twenty-three states tax Social Security benefits, so to find out your state’s policy or for other tax-related matters, consult your

Nami Hears“Crazy”Author Tom Hansen says the Wood River Valley lacks suitable care for a severely mentally ill person.

STORY AND PHOTO BY KAREN BOSSICK

W

hen Pete Earley’s psychotic son went off his meds, he took him to the emergency room. There, he cradled the college freshman for hours, only to see him denied care because the state of Virginia’s strict interpretation of the imminent danger clause determined he was not an immediate threat to himself or others. Earley’s son finally did get help—after he broke into a neighbor’s home where he took a bubble bath and trashed the premises. But the solution was jail, not treatment. Unable to help his son, Earley turned the skills he had honed as a Washington Post reporter into investigating mental illness in America. And he wrote a Pulitzer Prize-finalist book, “Crazy: A Father’s Search Through America’s Mental Health Madness.” The title refers to his judgment that the system is “a crazy, broken mess.” On Friday about 30 members and supporters of the Wood River Chapter of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) gathered at the Community Campus in Hailey to hear Earley. It was a pretty scathing indictment of America’s response to mental illness. Jails and prisons have become

our new state asylums where we hide rather than rehabilitate people, Earley said. There are 365,000 people with schizophrenia and bipolar disease sitting in jail. And the largest public mental health facility in the United States today is the Los Angeles County Jail, which houses 3,000 mentally ill inmates, he added. Idaho has just 11 beds for treatment—the chances of going to jail rather than receiving treatment in Idaho are five to one, Earley said. The problem burgeoned with the 1980s’ movement to deinstitutionalize the mentally ill. Asylums were shut down with no safety net in place. And, while community treatment centers sounded more humane, many were not equipped to take care of people with severe mental

NAMI-Wood River Valley has started having monthly potluck suppers to educate the community about various issues. The next meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 9, in the Minnie Moore Room at the Community Campus in Hailey. Guest speaker will be Dr. Tim J. Stoddard, the new psychiatrist with St. Luke’s Mental Health Services. Admission is free and drinks, plates and utensils are provided. RSVP at namiwrv@gmail.com or call 208-309-1987 by noon Wednesday, May 7.

clinic, even if just an outpatient clinic for now. “Our care is in Twin Falls 80 miles down the road,” he said.

residents in Miami and 400 don’t pass minimum standards. Earley described visiting Miami’s primary psychiatric facility—the ninth floor of the jail. Officers called it “the forgotten floor” where they house “hidden prisoners” with severe mental illnes . There he saw naked inmates drinking out of a toilet because the water system was broken. One inmate was serving a mandatory five-year sentence because he had pushed an elderly lady for “stealing his thoughts.” He had already been convicted of pushing two others. “If you had a hemorrhoid, you wouldn’t call a judge to take care of it. Why would you call the police and judge for mental illness?” he said. “And don’t tell me recovery is impossible. I’ve seen it with my own eyes,” he added saying that his son is now a peer-to-peer counselor. Tom Hansen, a Hailey man who serves as president of the state NAMI organization, said the Wood River Valley badly needs a care center or outpatient NAMI-Wood River Valley will start up a new Peer-to-Peer Education Program beginning May 5 and continuing through July 7. The free 10-session course for adults living with mental health challenges will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Mondays at the NAMI office at South Main and East Maple streets in Hailey. It features up-to-date research on brain biology, help creating a personalized relapse prevention plan and skills for making decisions and reducing stress.

Gas Guzzling Mistakes

More Mistakes That Cost You Gas Money Many of the mistakes we make that cost us gas money are behavioral issues. If you see yourself on this list, you could be saving money soon! Aggressive Driving Aggressive driving wastes gas. Rapid acceleration and braking can lower your gas mileage by 33 percent at highway speeds and 5 percent around town. Driving Too Fast While each car reaches optimal fuel economy at different speeds, gas mileage typically decreases rapidly above 60 mph.

For every 5 mph over 60 mph, you’re paying an extra 24¢ per gallon for gas, according to www. fueleconomy.gov, the official U.S. government source on energy efficiency. Cruise control can save gas at highway speeds. Learn to use your overdrive gears; when the car’s engine speed goes down, you save gas and reduce engine wear. Air Conditioning Should the air conditioner be on or off? Both Discovery Channel’s TV series MythBusters and Consumer Reports Magazine concluded that the air conditioner should be avoided

no matter the speed, so be thoughtful about when you use the A/C. Abstain from using the air conditioner at slow speeds and try the vent setting alone at highway speeds. If you must use the A/C, first discharge the hot air by opening the windows (and park in the shade next time!). Excessive Idling Idling can use a quarter to a half gallon of fuel per hour, depending on engine size and air conditioner (A/C) use. Find more Green Community Tips at Facebook.com/ERCSunValley.

Fishing R epoRt THE “WEEKLY” FISHING REPORT FOR APR. 2 FROM PICABO ANGLER

W

ith only 24 days left before Silver Creek, the Big Wood, the South Fork of the Boise and many other Idaho rivers open for the season, we thought we would provide anglers with a checklist of things to do before opening day is upon us! •Check you waders. There are plenty of cool June days to start most trout seasons. Making sure you are dry is an important part of the fun factor. To check for leaks, turn your waders inside out and spray rubbing alcohol on them with a mist bottle. Dark spots will appear where there are holes. Circle these with a black Sharpie and let them dry. Go back and put a thin layer of wader glue over the spot and let dry. Be sure you have a wading belt also. •Clean your fly line or get a new one. If the tip is starting to sink, time for a new line. If the line is just dirty, wash with warm water and a washcloth. Don’t use any soaps or line treatments; they just crack the line and make them worse. •Fill your fly box with big attractors—PMDs, ants, beetles, BWOs and nymphs. •Go through your vest or bag. Check for strike indicators, full floatant bottles, hemostats, nippers, etc. Get that broken zinger replaced, too! •Get you float tube out, fill it with air and make sure it holds for a day or two. If not, call us and we’ll get you a new inner tube. 788-3536. •Get some grease in that reel of yours that was screaming the wrong sound last season. •Get some practice casts in. It is never too soon for a little warmup! If you want help tuning up that cast, come on into Picabo Angler M-F and we’ll help you dial it in! •Replace all your old leaders and tippets. Unless you use fluorocarbon exclusively, chances are last year’s nylon tippets and leaders need to be replaced. •Make sure your license is up to date and you are good to go from a Fish and Game perspective. •Check the rivers’ CFS on the USGS website. Make a decision about where to fish accordingly. •Make sure your sunscreen and bug sprays are full! Almost everyone waits until they need it to buy it. The only trouble is, you’ll either fry or be eaten alive or both before you remember you need these things! Happy fishing, everyone!

No Bones About It… BY FRAN JEWELL

Part One Manners are not evil things.  Dogs that jump on people are not cute, they are not over-enthusiastic, they are not attention-seeking - they ARE disrespectful, obnoxious and could actually cause someone great bodily harm that YOU as a dog owner could pay for in a lawsuit.  It CAN be stopped IF YOU care to stop it.  The BEST time to stop it is before it starts, as a puppy who never gets petted if he jumps on you for anything. YOUR SPOILED DOGS are like spoiled children. No one can stand to be around them, and eventually, they won’t be able to stand being around you, either. ALWAYS ASK if your dog can play with someone else’s dog you may meet on the trail or on a hike.  They may have a fearful dog that is afraid of other dogs.  Don’t allow your dog to overwhelm another dog.  Simply be courteous and respectful. Not everyone loves your dog(s) as you do.  That doesn’t mean they are evil people.  It means they have a right to dislike dogs as much

as you have a right to own as many as you wish.  Be sensitive to others when your dog approaches ANYONE.  This is just being polite on your part and part of being responsible. Cute little dogs are still DOGS and need to be treated as such. They are not little people. Think of your little dog like a big dog. If a German shepherd did the same behavior, how would you or your friend feel about that? Great dogs belong to GREAT owners who care enough to train their dogs. BUDGET for training. Many people spend the money to buy a purebred dog, a DESIGNER dog, or even a rescue dog, and then are not able to afford training. If you have not learned how to train a dog, and if you can’t afford both the dog and the training, you can’t afford the dog. Be cautious of the trainer/ instructor that will tell you what you WANT to hear, not what is necessarily good for you and your dog. Always remember: You will certainly get what you pay for.  And you will get out of it what YOU put into it.  Ask for references and years of experience when hiring a “trainer/instructor.” There are other trainers/instructors who will disagree with me on every point above.    tws

hours a week editing it—every day but Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s—since late October. “Kathleen is an amazing and talented woman. Everyone should see her owl film,” said Hailey resident Mary Austin Crofts who was among those who viewed the video. “Some of the footage features amazing stuff most people don’t see,” added Hailey birder Poo Wright-Pulliam. “The attack by the hawk on the pygmy owl near Bellevue is very cool. And the barn owls coming out of the barns. And it’s all Idaho. Kathleen’s passion makes her a good birder. And she has a huge passion for saving the birds—she even donates part of the proceeds from her trips to help preserve them in places like Costa Rica.” Cameron wasn’t always a birder. A native of Rupert, she spent 15 years as a mental health counselor in Ohio when she took a sabbatical. When an acquaintance suggested they go birdwatching, she thought, “That sounds really boring,” but she responded, “Oh sure, that would be nice.” As they drove down the road, Cameron asked if they might stop so she could train her new binoculars on deer in the field. But they weren’t deer. They were some sort of big bird. “My friend said, ‘Oh my Lord, those are sandhill cranes.’ And I thought, ‘Wow, those are amazing.’ That was the spark that hooked me,” Cameron recounted. In no time at all, Cameron was visiting some of the major migratory fly routes in the country, including the shoreline of Lake Erie where warblers and thrushes refuel at the southernmost point of Canada. “That first day, my friend presented me with a notebook that had ‘Kathleen’s Life List’ written on it. I said, ‘What’s a life list?’ She said, ‘When you see a bird, you write down that you’ve seen it.’ “I thought, ‘Oh, yeah, like I’m going to do that.’ But I now have 561 sightings in North America and nearly 2,000 worldwide,” said Cameron, whose fingernails even have brown and yellow owls painted on them. Cameron’s birdwatching has taken her to Costa Rica to look for the 57 different types of hummingbird that reside there. She’s taken a motorized canoe through Peru, her binoculars affixed to her eyes. She’s slept behind blinds in the deserts of Idaho waiting for sage grouse to puff out their chest in their courtship dance. She’s gone birdwatching in Hawaii and Europe. And she just returned from 46 days in Costa Rica and Panama where she slept on an elevat-

ed platform under a thatched roof before hiking four miles in unrelenting heat to see a 2-foot harpy eagle that had been born in September. Her Majestic Feathers birding tours take birdwatchers to Costa Rica, Peru and Panama. Poo Wright-Pulliam joined her on the last trip, teaching birders how to illustrate what they were seeing. The beginning birders, who included Bellevue residents Steven and Janet Houts, accelerated much faster than they would have otherwise, Cameron said, because the drawing lessons helped them zero in on what kinds of beaks the birds they were observing had, the difference between primary and secondary feathers and other important attributes that can help identify a bird. Cameron was able to capture some of her owl footage out the window of her Bellevue home. She hiked in her 12-pound tripod and her 15-pound Panasonic standard definition digital video camera with its big Canon lens to other locales. Trying to be respectful, she often set up the camera and left it running while she went birding. Contrary to popular belief,

owls can’t turn their heads 360 degrees. But they can turn them 270 degrees, Cameron said. They can see in the dark as well as humans see on overcast days. Their hearing is so acute they can hear prey under snow through slots in their heads. Cameron says birds are an important barometer of what man is doing to nature, in part because we’ve kept good figures through things like the Audubon Christmas Bird Count. “They have important messages to give us,” she said. “It’s not that they’re flying by and saying, ‘Hey!’ But we tend to ignore how habitat loss will affect us. They’re showing us something important. Man is the No. 1 reason for the decline in songbirds and shorebirds because of the way we’ve destroyed their habitat. We’re all connected. Every single thing on the planet is playing a role in what keeps us balanced. When one thing goes down, another thing goes down. “And don’t think owls aren’t useful to us. One burrowing owl can eat 1,800 rodents and 7,000 grasshoppers over a season. Yet we’re killing them off with pesticides and car accidents.”

Gulp!

The dry season started a month early in Panama and Costa Rica this year as climate change lengthens the dry season, Kathleen Cameron said. “It’s normal to have rain during the dry season, but it isn’t happening,” she said. “They believe an El Niño season has formed. And they’ve started rationing energy in Panama and water in Costa Rica. It’s scary how dry it is despite the humidity there.”

Find Your Story In The Story BY KAREN BOSSICK

Do you sometimes feel like you’re on the stage of life without a script? You have a part to play but you don’t know the story? Valley of Peace Lutheran Church is offering valley residents the chance to go on a 31week journey through The Story beginning May 4. The Story will take participants from Genesis to Revelation in an easy-to-understand format utilizing video that reveals God’s purposes and desires and answers such questions as “Why do bad things happen to good people?” “It’s a way of covering the entire Bible in 31 weeks in a way that’s user friendly,” said Richard Stahl, a member of the church. “It covers the major stories and themes and helps you get through the difficult-to-read parts. And there are age-appropriate versions for kindergarteners and preschoolers, elementary school children, high school students and adults.” Each week’s 90-minute episode begins at 9 a.m. at the church at Woodside Boulevard and Wintergreen Drive in Hailey. “The Bible is central to our faith, but many people are intimidated by its scope and size,”

the way i see it

said Pastor Jerry Reinke. “We’ve totally reworked our Sunday service to make it more interactive as we give people a way to journey from Genesis to Revelation together.” As the story unfolds, viewers are introduced to heroes and villains, love and war, and more. There will be some pretty nifty video presentations followed by discussion, Stahl said. Some video, for instance, uses artists to tell the story. “They put a blob on the board and before you know it that blob has a face. Before long, that morphs into something else, like a movie coming to life. One minute you’re looking at Mary and Joseph’s journey to Bethlehem and then it changes so you’re looking at the innkeeper and shepherds,” Stahl said. There will be time for questions. And, since kids have a parallel experience, The Story lends itself to family discussion afterwards, Stahl said. “Many people have heard Bible stories but never put them together in chronological order. This is an opportunity to put the bits and pieces together,” Stahl said. “It’s a chance to find your story in God’s story.” Information: 208-221-4114 or www.haileyvop.org. tws

I was a gangly teen-ager who grew up in a Mennonite home and I didn’t have a lot of confidence, said Holmes. “The people here made me feel loved, answering all my questions about flora and fauna…” “I don’t know any other place where you can be screened by the TSA at the airport and after they’re done they give you a hug goodbye,” she added, recounting observations she’s made on past trips. “I want to be one of the people they do that to.” Holmes said she measures the worth of an education by asking whether it’s good enough for her two children, now grown. She recounted how she decided not to enroll one daughter in a school that emphasized memorizing facts, rather than problem solving. Noting that Woodside Elementary— soon to be Alturas— will be turned into a dual-immersion magnet school next year, Holmes said she just refurbished a dual-language elementary school, which had been 20 Dr. Gwen Carol Holmes counts Jesus Christ and the New Testayears in existence but slanted toward the English-speakdifficulties. ing child.

Gretchen Wagner, who represented parents on the interview committee, said that after a long, detailed process of interviewing several superbly qualified applicants, Holmes had “inspired us all anew.” “Dr. Holmes is in an excellent position to help everyone in our community, including our Latino population,” said Sergio Ruiz, who represented the Latino community. “She possesses the necessary abilities to listen and analyze any situation in a respectful manner.” There isn’t a silver bullet when it comes to providing a quality education, Holmes said. Instead, it’s about the hard work that educators do every day. She told how she plans to engage the teachers in teamwork building before they refine what’s already in place in the Blaine schools. One of the most glaring deficiencies is an achievement gap, she added. “You need polishing but you don’t need to turn things upside down,” she said. Holmes said she also plans to update the strategic plan, which was written in 2008. “Are these still our goals?” she said.

Dr. Richard Canfield said the Blaine County superintendent job was the only one that could lure him away from his work in Cape Cod.

f course you are already totally in the know about Idaho Gives Day but we wanted to update you with the latest and greatest on this super important day. A huge group of nonprofits have been working behind the scenes and designed a major expo that we hope you will come visit! The Idaho Nonprofit Center has coordinated its second annual statewide charitable giving day on May 1, 2014. The event is designed to spotlight the important work that nonprofits do in the State of Idaho, and encourage people to donate to the nonprofits of their choice. Over 40 Wood River Valley nonprofits are participating in Idaho Gives and encourage all those who have not given to a cause dear to their heart to give

on this day. Credit and debit card donations can be made on the Idaho Gives website or in-person at Shorty’s Diner in Hailey from 7am – 3pm, and at Starbucks in Ketchum from 7am – 7pm. A Nonprofit Expo and Happy Hour will be held in Ketchum Town Square complete with drinks and music from 5pm7pm.

“The generosity people show in our community is what sets us apart. It is a huge contributing factor to our quality of life, impacting us every single day.” We hope to see you out and about on May 1st!

A

huge impact on generosity in my life was when I met Ryan Redman and was asked to work for the Flourish Foundation. Through this program I have taught mindful awareness to kids as young as kindergarten and reaching through high school with the Compassionate Leader Program. In the 2014/2015 school year we will be expanding our program to every 5th grade in with Wood River Valley, among other classrooms. This provides an opportunity for children to learn how to deal with everyday stresses and manage their reactions, something I feel is invaluable. Last summer the Compassionate Young Leaders raised $50,000 through letter campaigns and local events to volunteer in Cuernavaca, Mexico working with NPH Intl., which serves as a home for hundreds of children. We helped them paint and re-vamp their recreational center, taught them English and spent time immersing ourselves in their culture and lives. We continued our international volunteering efforts in Ladakh, India, working with a local school affiliated with the Dalai Lama. We also built an earth bench made out of recycled goods and concrete to serve as functional community art. Currently through this program we have completed 300 hours of training with hospice and look forward to more travels to Jonestown, Mississippi, the 2nd most impoverished town in the nation to do community garden projects and help their older citizens with home improvements. We will be revisiting India to continue our meditation and spiritual learnings as well as setting up a medical tent for 200,000 visitors coming to the Kala Chakra. The Flourish Foundation provides an amazing opportunity to send kindness and compassion towards ourselves, others and the world around us. It provides opportunities for mindfulness and generosity not only in our own valley but around the world.
