Allen & Co. remains as quiet as it is impressive

Some of the world’s most powerful people converge in Sun Valley—and don’t tell anyone about it

Logo-adorned private jets jamming Friedman Airport, ear-pieced security guards roaming the Sun Valley Resort grounds and hushed rumors of celebrities strolling around town can only mean one thing: Allen & Company is back for its heralded summer conference.

The ultra-secretive and somehow even more opulent event returns for its 39th year at the Sun Valley Resort, running from July 5-9. Guests adorned in the event’s trademark emblazoned vests and name tags walked casually from the main lodge to an outdoor dining area. But, make no mistake, this is a time of hard work from some of the world’s hardest working people.

Figma, Inc. CEO Dylan Field dodged a question about what he is most excited for as he walked with his wife past Pete Lane’s Mountain Sports in the Sun Valley Village. What was on his mind? Perhaps his collection of Non-Fungible Tokens, which is valued in the millions. Forbes has reported he has made nearly $10 million from the sale of these NFTs, which some have compared to high art, and others have compared to pet rocks.

NBA owners Daniel Sundheim, Ted Leonis and Michael Reinsdorf escaped the headline-filled professional basketball offseason, finding refuge in an area whose most notable contribution to hoops culture is the name of its Ford dealership in Hailey (Karl Malone).

With Blaine County COVID cases rising, CDC assigns ‘medium’ risk

Case numbers slowly trending higher, though remain far below winter surge

As COVID-19 case numbers inch higher in Blaine County, the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has rated the county’s community-impact level at “medium.”

The CDC assessment on June 30 advised that people who are at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19 talk to their health-care provider about whether to wear a mask, that residents stay up to date on vaccinations and that people get tested for the virus if they have symptoms.

The CDC’s levels—low, medium and high—are determined by reviewing COVID-19 hospital admissions and the total number of new cases in the area.

In Blaine County, the daily seven-day moving average incidence rate of COVID-19 cases per hypothetical 100,000 population rose to seasonal highs of 41 on June 27 and July 4, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare reported. The number has been slowly climbing since it dropped to single digits in early spring, after the omicron-driven winter surge sent the metric soaring to about 443 in January.

The South Central Public Health District—which on June 16 rated Blaine County’s COVID-19 risk as “moderate”—recorded 64 new COVID-19 cases in the county during the week of June 30 to July 6. The district—which serves eight counties in south-central Idaho—recorded 251 cases in Twin Falls County the same week.

Through July 6, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare had recorded 6,419 COVID-19 cases in Blaine County since the pandemic started, contributing to 30 deaths.

Health officials have stated that COVID-19 case numbers in all areas are likely higher than recorded in recent months because many people are being tested at home and not in health-care centers.

In Idaho, the daily seven-day moving average incidence rate of COVID-19 cases per 100,000 population rose to a seasonal high of 27.3 on July 3, before dropping to 19.9 on July 6, Health and Welfare reported. It had dropped to about 3 in early April, after the winter surge pushed the number to about 243 in January.

Health and Welfare recorded 1,913 new COVID-19

Sun Valley eyes major improvements at Festival Meadow

play areas

The city of Sun Valley has started planning a major project to turn the Festival Meadow field along Sun Valley Road into a more welcoming, better-used public park with features that could include gathering spaces and play areas for children.

City staff and consultants from Ketchum-based BYLA Landscape Architects presented initial, conceptual plans and ideas for the 5-acre site to the City Council in a special meeting June 30. While no decisions have yet been made about what should be included in the project, the consultants asked council members to consider elements such as a small amphitheater or communal space for classes and lectures, a natural-looking kids’ play area with boulders, a winding path for pedestrians and cyclists, a stage, and signs to identify the site and its location at the gateway to Sun Valley.

Landscape architect Ben Young, principal and co-owner of BYLA, told city leaders that he and city staff are aiming to move the project from the “draft phase” to more focused planning.

“There’s lots of room to play with this,” he said.

At issue is the city-owned Festival Meadow site, a grassy expanse immediately east of Our Lady of the Snows Catholic Church that gently climbs into a sagebrush-covered hillside. The property—which the city acquired from Sun Valley Co. about 20 years ago in a land trade—borders Sun Valley Resort horse pastures on its eastern side. It is close to the city’s border with Ketchum and the iconic Sun Valley red barn, which unofficially marks the entrance to Sun Valley.

The property has been used for a variety of public events, such as educational demonstrations during Ketchum’s Wagon Days celebrations, art fairs, concerts, bike races and beer festivals. It is open to the public but is used somewhat sparingly, city officials and the consultants said.

Young said the plan calls for encouraging more day-to-day use—in part by informing people it is not private property—and outwardly welcoming people to

Sun Valley. One option is to do that with “a nice, impressive sign that basically says, ‘Welcome to the city of Sun Valley,’” Councilman Keith Saks said.

Young noted that the project would essentially make the site the city’s flagship public gathering area.

“When this gets developed, it’s really the only park the city has,” he said.

Other ideas for the site include limited parking and drop-off access near the adjacent church, a pavilion-type structure, a small winter sledding area, a “spur” of the nearby city bike path, e-bike charging stations and a promenade-like entry lined with flowering trees.

“We really have to figure out how to get people into this,” Young said.

To facilitate including a small amphitheater and several other elements, the city has asked Sun Valley Resort to consider giving more land at the site—about one acre—to the city, City Administrator Walt Femling said. Resort officials are currently considering the request, he said.

Some discussion focused on challenges posed by a lack of parking in the area. Femling said the city plans to encourage biking to the site and will continue to discuss options for parking.

Councilwoman Jane Conard said she wants to ensure the project does not include too much hardscape and concrete. Council members and consultants also discussed water conservation. Young and fellow BYLA principal and co-owner Chase

Gouley said the intent is to be environmentally friendly and to consider including natural areas with native landscaping.

Though a detailed plan is far from complete, the cost of doing what the city is currently considering—including developing infrastructure, such as utilities—would range from $4 million to $5 million, the consultants said.

With the city now developing its budget for the 2023 fiscal year—which starts in October—Femling said he is working on a financial plan for the project. City income from local-option taxes is up 49% so far this fiscal year over the record-breaking numbers of last fiscal year, he said, and could yield up to an extra $1 million.

The city also has money saved in city accounts and, after an official audit, the city will know in January 2023 how much it could apply from its so-called “fund balances,” Femling said. The city could also seek to raise some funding from the public through name recognition on sections of pavers or on a structure, he said.

The city plans to finish a more detailed plan in the coming weeks and to then present it to the public for review, Femling said. A finalized project could be put out for bid in the fall, he said, with a potential goal of starting work next April. The best approach would be to do the work in one concerted project and to not “piecemeal” it, Femling said.

“We look forward to moving this thing forward,” Mayor Peter Hendricks said.

Ketchum City Council approves summer funding for River Run bus route

Route between Ketchum and River Run will be subsidized in part by Ketchum and Sun Valley

The Ketchum City Council approved an $8,000 commitment to Mountain Rides to support a summer bus route—the Silver route—that will run from Sun Valley Village to River Run Plaza and back through Labor Day.

Sun Valley Resort will contribute $32,000—two-thirds of the cost—while Ketchum and Sun Valley will give $8,000 each.

Councilmember Jim Slanetz said most, but not all, of the benefit from this route would go to the resort.

“I think there is some benefit [to

Ketchum] because it will stop in downtown Ketchum and bring people from the resort,” he said.

The council voted unanimously to approve the payment, which will be funded using local-option tax revenues.

Councilmember Courtney Hamilton was more hesitant than the other council members, asking if it is Ketchum’s responsibility to “pay for” something that is primarily designed to increase traffic for the Resort.

“I get it, but this just feels to me like it’s driven by Sun Valley Company and it’s mostly to their benefit,” she said. “But, it’s a small amount and I’m willing to give it a try.”

Ketchum moves one step closer to beginning ‘Lease to Locals’ program

Plan would incentivize long-term rentals

The Ketchum City Council announced its intention on Tuesday to issue a “no like competitor” document for the rental assistance company Landing Locals, which will enable the city to move forward with the company to implement its “Lease to Locals” program.

The program’s business model is simple: It offers onetime cash incentives of varying levels to short-termrental owners to convert their properties into seasonal or long-term employee housing. Then, according to Landing Locals CEO Colin Frolich, the company facilitates an “Airbnb-like” online marketplace to connect long-term tenants to vacation properties and second homes that often sit empty for most, if not all, of the year.

The company currently operates programs in Truckee, California; North Lake Tahoe, California; South Lake Tahoe, California; and Summit County, Colorado.

Cities in Idaho must either issue a request for proposal, which invites companies to bid for a contract, or a sole source declaration document that states only one company can provide the service at hand.

“Landing Locals’ other contracts in California and Colorado were sole source declarations, but ultimately it is up to you guys to decide what is best for our town,” said City Administrator Jade Riley to the City Council.

“Whatever [staff] thinks is most transparent and easy from your perspective, I’m in support of,” said Councilmember Courtney Hamilton.

“This is a very unique situation, and if you’re assuring us that you have done the research and there are no other entities out there doing this, then I am fine with [the sole source document],” said Councilmember Amanda Breen.

Councilmember Jim Slanetz asked if the service was something that could be provided in-house, with a more efficient use of funds.

“To me, it’s not that novel of an idea,” he said. “I get that there is an implementation factor, but still.”

Riley pointed out that the company’s already existing web portal and experience with other markets are key factors in identifying the value in hiring them.

“There is a science to going through the numbers and doing the marketing and recruitment plan. And we’re buying their experience of how to align the incentives,” he said.

The council voted unanimously to issue the sole source declaration.

Landing Locals was founded in 2018 by Frolich, an exAirbnb executive, and his wife, who saw a need to increase the housing stock available to locals in vacation communities across the West.

The Landing Locals “Lease to Locals” program was first introduced to council as a part of the comprehensive Housing Action Plan presented in May.

F&G: Bears to be trapped, euthanized over campground conflicts

North Fork Campground closed indefinitely

Officers from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game are planning to trap and euthanize two black bears that reportedly stirred up trouble at Sawtooth National Forest campsites over the holiday weekend, the department announced Wednesday.

Regional Fish and Game spokesman Terry Thompson said his Magic Valley office received several reports from campers over the Fourth of July weekend indicating that at least two bears were reaping—or attempting to reap—food rewards from vehicles, tents and garbage bins.

One bear was reported wandering between dispersed campsites along North Fork Road, behind the Sawtooth National Recreation Area headquarters north of Ketchum, and had “damaged camping gear and attempted to get inside vehicles,” according to a Wednesday press release from the department.

The other bear was frequenting Baumgartner Campground in the Fairfield Ranger District east of Featherville eating “in and around the campground, especially from overflowing dumpsters.”

Fish and Game said barrel traps will be deployed in both areas in the interest of public safety. The bears will then be trucked to a quiet area away from people and euthanized.

“Once a bear becomes foodconditioned they present a threat to residents and campers since they can become aggressive as they protect their humansourced food. When and if the bear is trapped it will be euthanized,” Fish and Game stated.

Thompson said he was unaware if the Ketchum-area bear had caused any physical damage to vehicles, but said people had reported that “a bear did minor damage to a truck topper [camper shell].”

“We don’t track individuals, but we have had similar reports of a bear gaining access to garbage cans in the Ketchum area for the last two months,” he said. “We have no specific information as to the kind or the extent of the damage to camping gear. The report we received indicated a bear or bears had visited campsites and rummaged through camping gear.”

He added that the department was unaware of any charging activity or unusual daytime activity, and reports have been

of bears at campsites “most commonly at night.”

At least one campsite in the SNRA was closed by the Forest Service over the weekend due to bear activity, Thompson said.

“This is a great example of why residents need to call us when they see that a bear has been in their garbage or other food sources. A bear who learns

repeatedly that food can be found around homes and campsites is a growing threat to public safety,” Thompson told the Express, “and thereby forces us into a trapping and euthanizing scenario.”

“If we know we have a bear learning to get human-sourced food, we need to take actions to deter that learned behavior, by hazing or some other technique,”

Thompson continued. “This obviously has a much better outcome for the bear and reduces the potential public safety issues.”

Sawtooth National Forest spokeswoman Elizabeth Wharton said the Forest Service closed down the North Fork campground this week to protect the

Will Idaho trade its mountains for stocks and bonds?

Imagine Idaho without public lands.

Imagine the viewpoint at 8,700-foot Galena Summit with a sign that reads, “Private Property, No Trespassing.”

Imagine that the sight of the Sawtooth Mountains as their jagged edges cut the sky is limited only to people who can pay.

Imagine that roads that lead to the snowfed lakes named Alturas, Stanley, Pettit and Redfish are blocked off because they have been sold to private owners who want to keep their cold waters for themselves.

Think of the headwaters of the Salmon River running through an estate’s backyard and the river’s banks becoming playgrounds only for the super-wealthy or well-connected.

To Idahoans who value the state’s public land legacy, this is a nightmare scenario and until recently was only a remote possibility.

Yet state leaders are flirting with the nightmare. Every step by state legislators who wrap themselves in states-rights grievances and every decision by a U.S. Supreme Court that seems to be elevating states’

Parents must be prepared to talk about shootings

Parents must be prepared to talk to their kids about school shootings. Here are tips on how.

The more things change, the more they stay the same, or so the saying goes. In January 2021, I wrote a column called “Talking to your kids about recent mob violence.” The recent tragedies in Uvalde, Texas, and several other states bring on the sad occasion to write this piece again. I need to repurpose suggestions I’ve gathered during my 30-plus years in education about how to talk to your kids about scary things. I wish we didn’t have to continually rewrite such tips.

School shootings, something that once seemed unthinkable, now happen with a degree of regularity. A devastating reality of raising children in America today is that parents must be prepared to talk to their kids about mass murders. Here are some suggestions about how to approach the topic.

Let your child’s questions guide the conversation. The best way to figure out how much information kids need is to listen to them. They often ask, who is to blame? What could have been done to prevent this horrible situation? Could it happen at my school? Truthful answers help build trust. Unfortunately, you must state that although school is typically a safe place, there are risks.

In the days and weeks that follow a tragedy, parents should talk to their children about how to cope when they feel concerned or anxious. Remember that less is more. A child may think we are at war because they saw armed guards on TV. Explain that those people work to keep everyone safe. Always keep your answers basic and at your child’s developmental level.

power and minimizing federal power, make the nightmare more likely to become reality.

Idahoans have a mistaken belief that public lands protect themselves because they are wild and undeveloped. We believe that public lands are our birthright. We understand that they belong to everyone, but we possess them by proximity.

Idahoans have overlooked the fact that the state Constitution demands that officials manage state lands to generate the most money. It calls for selling timber, leasing the lands or selling them.

When the State Land Board realized that it could raise more money selling real estate than timber, it cranked up sales. Now nothing is sacred.

Last month, the board obliterated the idea that any piece of state property is safe from the auction block when it announced that Cougar Island, 14 pristine acres surrounded by the crystal waters of Payette Lake, would be sold.

Idaho Department of Lands officials called the island an “underperforming asset” because it generated just $32,400 in


revenue last year. They estimate it will sell for more than $4.8 million and so it went up for grabs.

Elected officials in Valley County, where the lake is located, and in the resort city of McCall, which sits on the south side of the lake, have objected. To save it, they would have to buy it.

If the wholesale selloff of the very lands that make Idaho Idaho is to stop, Idahoans must change the state Constitution and make elected officials understand that they want state and federal lands protected.

Otherwise, the precious legacy of public lands will be lost.

Instead of the inspiration of rushing waters, encounters with wildlife and being wrapped in blankets of stars, future Idahoans could be left with only stocks and bonds to replace the priceless.

“Our View” represents the opinion of the newspaper editorial board, which is made up of members of its board of directors. Remarks may be directed to

In the 2019 Idaho Press Club awards competition, announced in April 2020, the Mountain Express won General Excellence for weekly newspapers.

Provide reassurance. Kids are often concerned about personal safety for themselves and their family. How they react to various news stories and questions that arise will give you an idea about their specific concerns. You can offer comfort such as: “We are all safe.” You can’t promise that their school will never have a shooting, but you can communicate truthfully that school shootings are, in fact, very rare. Remind them that they have protocols and drills at school to keep them safe. Avoid graphic

details. Do your best to actively listen, rather than trying to take away children’s pain.

I recommend the book “Once I Was Very Very Scared,” by Chandra Ghosh Ippen, for the preschool set. In the story, many animals go through scary experiences, but each reacts differently and has its own way of coping. Parents of older children can Google “Helping Students After a School Shooting” for a list of resources from the American School Counselor Association. Parents are sometimes afraid to bring up school shootings with their children because they don’t want to scare them. But children will often have heard about a school shooting from friends and the media. So bringing it up can actually alleviate any anxiety they might be feeling. Avoiding potentially scary topics can make them scarier to children.

It will take time for parents to comfort children and help them process such tragic events. We need to be patient. Sometimes, especially with young kids, we need to have these conversations over and over. Proceed in little chunks. They might not be able to digest everything in one sitting.

For young children, limit screen time to non-news coverage programming. Also, the younger the child, the more likely they are to see each broadcast as a new attack. Many children saw the broadcast of the Sept. 11 plane crashes as “hundreds of planes crashing again and again.” School shootings are horrific, scary, and important. Thus, they dominate the media. As a result, we can think of them as a much bigger threat than they really are. The more we watch them, the greater probability our minds create of them occurring.

Statistically, school shootings actually are not very common. So while they are a threat, the likelihood that one will personally affect any of us individually is slim. Some anxiety is warranted; debilitating anxiety is not. If you feel that you are more anxious than you should be, a good first step is always to take a break from any media that might be focusing your attention in an unhealthy direction. Learn and understand some coping strategies for yourself, then help your child understand their emotions. But if you’re just watching the same coverage over and over again and it’s not offering anything new that’s important to your family, then disconnect.

Anxiety is meant to prepare us for action, so channel the worries you are feeling into something proactive you can do. Paint. Write poetry. Volunteer in the community. Donate to relevant causes. Stick to routines. The unpredictable is scary for children, and a predictable routine is especially reassuring when children are frightened or unsure. Even if kids are anxious or fearful, there’s a benefit to going to school and maintaining daily activities.

Finally, create a strong community. In any time of unrest or crisis, gathering friends and family provides much needed support for grown-ups and children alike. Having more people around also means that you will have more resources to share with your children.

Hailey to pilot residential food composting program

‘Smart’ bins would remove food waste from landfill stream

The Hailey City Council last week agreed to accept a $33,500 grant from the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality for a pilot food scrap composting project that would install three solarpowered composting bins in well-trafficked locations across the city.

The proposed initiative, called the “City of Hailey Community Compost Project,” is based on the SmartCompost Pilot in Astoria, Queens, New York, which requires residents to sign up to request physical key cards that automatically unlock receptacles.

The SmartCompost program receptacles are solar-powered, accessible 24/7 and able to self-lock when full, according to New York City’s Department of Sanitation.

Meat, dairy, eggshells and other leftovers—as well as food-soiled paper like tea bags, coffee filters and napkins—would be accepted, as would dead flowers and houseplants. Dog waste, hygienic products and plastic of any kind would be prohibited.

The food waste would then be trucked by Clear Creek Disposal to Winn’s Compost out Ohio Gulch to be composted on a large scale, finished and distributed back to the community for use in parks and gardens.

The DEQ’s $33,500 grant comes from the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s Sustainable Materials Management grant program. More than half of the $33,500 grant would go toward educating Hailey residents on what materials the bins accept and how to use them. That role would fall on the Climate Action Coalition of the Wood River Valley, which would begin public outreach in August, according to the city’s original funding request sent in April.

A grant breakdown from the Community Development Department indicates that each bin would cost $4,000, with a $12,000 total for three; collection and hauling by Clear Creek would cost $6,000; and outreach and education would cost $15,000. Receptacles would be emptied “once weekly” by Clear Creek, and all costs would be reimbursed by the state on a quarterly basis, the department stated.

“If the bins are full every week, we will divert [from the landfill] a maximum of 75,000 pounds in the first year,” the department said. That’s 37.5 tons, equal to about 9% of the city’s current food waste.

According to a waste audit conducted by Blaine County last year, the entire county produces about 35,000 tons of waste annually, 4,500 of those tons

Courtesy NYC Department of Sanitation Hailey is proposing a first-of-its kind municipal compost program in which three 64-gallon “smart” collection bins, similar to this one, would be installed throughout the city starting this fall.

from food waste.

“Food waste alone is the second largest subcategory of Blaine County’s waste and accounts for 13.7% of Blaine County’s waste stream … If we include other compostable materials such as yard waste, that number jumps to 20.4% of Blaine County’s waste stream,” the city of Hailey stated.

The Hailey City Council has asked for changes to the city’s waste collection model and composting technology for at least a year.

According to City Resilience Coordinator Rebecca Bundy, trucking food and yard waste from Hailey to Ohio Gulch and Ohio Gulch to Milner Butte landfill in Burley—a 200-mile round trip— adds a significant carbon footprint on top of the greenhouse gases produced by food rotting at the landfill. Methane and carbon emissions from food waste and trucking it to Burley generate about 3,460 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions annually in Blaine County, she reported.

“Getting biomass out of our waste stream is extremely important because biomass creates methane when it decomposes,” she said in a previous council presentation.

Winn’s Compost also already runs a local food waste collection program, turning expired food and table scraps from local businesses into garden and landscape compost and topsoil every week. Last summer, Winn’s Compost owner Winn Weaver said the facility could easily triple its food and yard waste intake from 550 to 1,650 cubic yards of material.

The Hailey Community Development Department said the proposed opt-in program would represent an extension of the local business program.

“The infrastructure, stakeholders, and working relationships are all largely already in place,” the department stated. “This program is shovel ready.”


Voters name new Hailey building

Voters have officially renamed Hailey’s old post office building at 116 S. River St. “Hailey Town Center West,” the city announced Monday.

The 4,000-square-foot building—which housed Copy & Print up until last year—was constructed in the 1960s across from the Hailey Public Library and Hailey City Hall.

It was acquired in August 2021 through the city’s $950,000 purchase of a quarter-block of land behind City Hall. Voters later turned down a measure from the City Council three months later that would have reimbursed the city for its purchase by increasing property taxes by about $20 per $100,000 value annually.

The Town Center West building is currently one large room with restroom and storage facilities. The city has considered floor plans with smaller meeting spaces and a glass overhead door to make the space more welcoming.

Councilmembers have also suggested adding outdoor benches, an outdoor stage for live music

events, a kitchen for cooking classes and a community garden or rooftop patio.

According to a press release from the Hailey Public Library, more than 130 residents participated in voting. Sixty different name suggestions were narrowed down to six options by a small committee, including Mayor Martha Burke, and voted on by sticker at the library and City Hall.

“In the end the clear winner was Hailey Town Center West which, surprisingly, had been our working name,” the library stated.

Several community groups have already reserved Town Center West for meetings, trainings, clases and presentations, according to the library.

E-bike restrictions in effect on many traditional mountain biking trails

Popular machines bring philosophical debate

If you’ve grown accustomed to huffing and puffing up your favorite dirt road or mountain biking trail and have been passed by someone who doesn’t seem to be working very hard at all, you may have been dusted by someone on an electronic bike, or e-bike for short.

The secret: Onboard batteries give pedalers a boost.

Agencies in and around the Wood River Valley are regulating these ubiquitous and increasingly popular machines, keeping them off limits on many trails prized by traditional cyclists, such as Fox Creek and Lake Creek and the single-track trails around Galena Lodge.

Other popular hiking and biking trails to the south, including the entire Croy Canyon trail system west of Hailey, are open to e-bikes.

The popular Harriman Trail north of Ketchum, which is as wide as a road, is also off-limits to e-bikes. The same goes for the Wood River Trail, a paved bike path that stretches from Ketchum to Bellevue.

These new regulations, established by the Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service, with special attention given to the Sun Valley Resort and Blaine County Recreation District, mark the latest in a decades-long effort to negotiate potential conflicts between hikers, horses, motorized vehicles and bikes.

E-bikes are permitted on many singletrack trails in the Wood River Valley that have historically been opened to dirt bikes.

“The history of motorcycle use here goes back further than mountain bikes, so we do have many miles of motorized trails for e-bikes,” said Jeff Wolter, an employee at Backwoods in Ketchum.

BLM areas, located predominantly in the south valley, provide for more e-Bike options than up north, which is predominantly administered by the Forest Service. The BCRD’s new 13.5-mile Quigley


Loop Trail in Hailey is open to e-bikes, for example.

Farther to the north in the Sawtooth Valley, a popular e-bike accessible trail is the Fisher-Williams loop.

Know trail regulations

The Wood River Trails Coalition, BLM and Forest Service share notes on trail regulations and trail conditions throughout the summer and have compiled a website that combines them.

Sarah Gress, Executive Director of the Wood River Trails Coalition, said the ongoing regulation of e-bikes seems to have less to do with the impact these machines have on trails and more to do with philosophical ideas regarding trail use.

“Some people are concerned about the speed of e-bikes, but it also relates a lot to the wilderness ethic, whether or not people on e-bikes should have such easy access to the backcountry,” Gress said.

The Wilderness Act prohibits motorized machines of any kind in federally designated wilderness areas. But Gress said the anti-e-bike sentiment sometimes carries over more generally into less restricted areas.

“It might come down to the fear of losing the human-powered backcountry experiences,” she said.

Gress, who uses an e-bike in her work on trails with work crews, said e-bikes are pushing people to “reimagine” the significance of those really long rides in the woods and mountains.

“And they allow older people to extend their mountain biking careers,” she said.

“They also allow those with physical disabilities to access the outdoors in ways they would not be otherwise able to.”

In general, the farther north you get in the Wood River Valley, the more likely you are to find e-bike restrictions on single-track trails. Get farther out into the designated wilderness areas and you will find some areas off limits even to horses, leaving you with a final transport option: your feet.

Communication is key: Sun Valley Opera offers a triple threat

Broadway trio to play the Festival Meadow

Before many of his recital sets, Broadway performer Jared Wayne Gladly reminds the audience that this moment will never happen again.

“So let’s live in it,” Gladly tells them. “Let’s make the best of it. Let’s decide to have a good time.”

He wants the crowd to be challenged and celebrated in the same night.

On Thursday, July 14, Gladly joins fellow Broadway singer Allison Semmes for a Sun Valley Opera performance on Festival Meadow. Pianist Sean Mason will accompany them.

“I don’t like to enter any project by myself,” Mason said. “I love to be in collaboration. I love to feed off people’s ideas. I love to be inspired by other people.”

Tickets range $50-$425. Gates open at 5p.m. The show starts at 6:30 p.m. A DJ will start a dance party at 7:30 p.m.

They will play a selection of hits from soul, jazz, funk, Motown, R&B and Broadway.

“We would like to communicate the brilliance of that music to an audience who is willing and ready to receive it,” Gladly said.

Gladly performed with Sun Valley Opera’s 2018 production of “The Temptations Tribute.” In 2015, Semmes first performed in the Sun Valley Opera production “I Hear A Symphony, Motown’s Greatest Hits” and later in 2019 with “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow.”

“These times in this country, there’s a lot of tension, trauma, distance and conflict,” Semmes said. “Music, I believe, is so healing.”

This is the first time all three will perform together onstage.

“No man is an island—no man stands alone,” Gladly said.

Once an ensemble member touring nationally with “Dreamgirls,” Gladly has a wide vocabulary of music he can draw from.

“[He] is able to have the freedom to weave in and out of different musical, emotional and harmonic settings,” Mason said. “That’s something I enjoy as a musician ... To have freedom and flexibility in the moment, in the now.”

Mason is the anchor of the group: cool, calm and collected.

“To have a partner in art that can also ground and root me in order to give some levity but also to make space for that spirit to come through us and through me ... that’s invaluable,” Gladly said.

Semmes, he said, is the star.

“Allison is such a light,” Gladly said. “I have always adored Allison. Basically, Allison is famous, and we are her back-up because she’s just that amazing and that great,” he laughed. “All of us are professionals in this. We all have a colorful resume and pretty interesting routes through art and through music.”

Although they grew up in different parts of the country, they all fell in love with music

through church.

“The Black Southern church is its own thing,” Mason said. “There’s little ego. The whole point is to move the people who are experiencing it.”

Both of Semmes’ grandmothers played piano in church choirs.

“I’m a woman of faith—if it’s meant for me to have, then I’ll have it. If not, then there’s something else,” Semmes said. “I don’t subscribe to the competitive mindset.”

Despite this, Semmes has found great success. At the Kennedy Center, she performed “Little Shop of Horrors,” the first musical she fell in love with. But, she says Broadway isn’t as glamorous as many people think.

“You do the same show over and over ... It’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my entire life,” Semmes said. “If you’re tired, you still have to give 100% to an audience who has never seen the show, even though

Sun Valley

like to record an album and tour her own music.

“I’d like my music to be playing in spaces, whether that’s on TV or in an elevator,” Semmes laughed. “Maybe not an elevator.”

Although Semmes and Gladly only recently became friends, they have crossed paths several times.

“The theater community is much smaller than you think in New York,” Semmes said.

They were even in some of the same Broadway productions— “Book of Mormon,” “Motown”— albeit at different times.

“If you focus on your block and I focus on my block, then we got two better blocks. Then we have a better neighborhood and a better community,” Gladly said. He even hosts an open mic night.

“It’s not too shabby to do Broadway. It’s not too shabby to be able to go around the world and do what I love,” Gladly said. “But it hits different when it’s in my neighborhood and when it’s with people that matter to me.”

Since its inception, music has had communal values.

“We made music collectively ... To not only heal, but also to celebrate, to dance, to communicate,” Mason said.

Their influences are all over the place. Lately, Mason has been studying the P-Funk era of the 70s and how electronic instruments drum machines and the 80s changed everything. Last month, Semmes went through a metal phase. At times, she finds it difficult to enjoy music objectively since she spends so much time working on it.

“When you encounter a performer that can transcend, that can take you out of your head, it’s a very special thing,” Semmes said.

One of Gladly’s idols is Bill Withers. Mason loves Ray Charles—“I really like the way he expresses himself through playing piano and through his voice,” he said—but he listens to nearly everything. Though he’s a classically trained pianist, his playlists might include Drake, Beyonce or Kendrick Lamar

it may be your 400th show. Making it new every time is challenging. But, as a creator, someone who loves performing and loves music, you can find infinite ways of saying one thing. I think it’s about staying open to being inspired.”

In the near future, she would

Gladly and Mason met while collaborating on “The Soapbox Presents,” an initiative to promote artists of color working throughout the pandemic.

“Community is not just where you live, it’s what you do,” Gladly said.

They performed together for the Stoop Sessions, jamming on a street corner in Harlem to help local businesses.

“I don’t have any judgment about what’s going on today,” Mason said. “I just try to be influenced in the way it needs to influence me. I just take what I need to take from the tree.”

It can be hard for him to verbalize the joy he gets from playing live.

“It’s a feeling of release every time I perform,” Mason said. “It’s similar to taking the trash out in your home. I feel this sense of youth.”

He just tries to be as present as possible every time he performs.

“I purposely come with an open mind and an open heart,” Mason said. “I guess that’s how I keep it interesting. But everything has always been interesting when I’m performing. I try to stay directly in the moment.”

According to Gladly, they just let the spirit guide them.

“Our whole goal is to uplift the people, uplift the community and uplift the audience,” Gladly said.

Of the many things Semmes excels at, one of her great talents is breathwork.

“Breathing is what grounds me—It keeps my nerves in check,” Semmes said. “The nerves can work for you or against you. I always try to make them work for me by just being excited about what you’re about to do, the music I’m going to share out there for people to hear, it hypes me up. Once I’m onstage, just let go. Have fun.”

Featuring unidentified recreationists, this image was originally used as a publicity image for Sun Valley Resort around 1955. It highlights both the beauty of our regional lakes as well as the available recreational opportunities outdoors. The image focuses on a man and a woman resting on the dock, with the woman waving at a boat pulling a water-skier on Pettit Lake. About 20 years later, Pettit Lake would become part of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. Today it continues to offer many recreational opportunities to those who visit its water.

If water skiing is not your preference of activities this summer, central Idaho has many other options to offer. Outdoor festivals, hiking, mountain biking, rafting, fishing and camping are just a few to choose from. You can drive to Craters of the Moon and explore the lava fields or visit the remote wilderness of The Frank ChurchRiver of No Return Wilderness.

Tumors involving the testes are the second most common form of cancer in male dogs. There are several types of cells within the testes that can, individually or in combination with other types of cells, form tumors. The tumor types are called Sertoli cell tumors, seminomas and interstitial cell tumors. These all occur with equal frequency.

Testicles that have not descended into the scrotal sac are called cryptorchid testicles. These testicles have a higher incidence of tumors because of the higher temperature in the abdominal cavity compared to the lower temperature in the scrotum. Most signs of testicular tumors are related to the actual presence of the mass within the testicle. Palpation of the testicle may reveal nodular enlargement of the testicle or pain. Sertoli cell tumors can produce estrogen hormone, which results in feminizing signs such as enlarged nipples, a pendulous prepuce, attraction of other male dogs, symmetrical hair loss and hyperpigmentation of the skin of the groin. Estrogen can also cause prostatic changes and can depress the bone marrow, resulting in anemia and platelet or white blood cells abnormalities. In the rare case of a malignant tumor, signs may be related to other organs to which the tumor has spread. With testosterone secreting tumors, a large prostate may be present.

Palpation of the testicle initially raises concern that a nodule or enlargement of the testicle may represent a tumor. Signs of feminization in an intact male and/or an enlarged prostate may indirectly point to the possibility of a testicular tumor. A fine-needle aspiration of testicular

tissue followed by cytological evaluation by a pathologist may help confirm the presence of a tumor. If spread of a malignant testicular tumor is suspected, a rectal examination is indicated to attempt to detect enlargement of lymph nodes in the vicinity. The prostate gland can also be palpated via a rectal exam. Blood work may confirm bone marrow involvement, which occurs primarily with the Sertoli cell tumors. An ultrasound of the abdomen may identify testicles that have not descended properly into the scrotum and may detect enlarged lymph nodes. Additional tests to evaluate estrogen levels can be done to confirm the cause of feminization. Not all dogs have increased estrogen, however.

Most testicular tumors are locally confined and castration with removal of the tumor is curative. Unilateral removal of the affected testicle can be done in a valuable breeding animal, if the remaining testicle is in its normal location. When the tumor is malignant and has spread to other organs, additional treatment modalities, such as chemotherapy and radiation can be considered. Overall, the number of dogs treated with these other modalities has been too small to judge their effectiveness. Most signs of feminization resolve within approximately three weeks after castration. Additional chemotherapy and/or radiation may be an option for the most malignant form of testicular tumors. Prognosis in most animals with benign tumors is good.

The last full Thor movie was the overstuffed 2017 “Thor: Ragnarok,” with the God of Thunder dealing with dueling brother and sister issues, the imminent destruction of his planet, a boozy sidekick, a huge dog, pal Hulk having a panic attack and the death of his father.

It was Taika Waititi filmmaking at its most intense, with slo-mo sauntering, stupid antlered headdresses, slicing swords and laser cannons, capes and undead soldiers, a hair-cropped Thor, a typically unbalanced Jeff Goldblum character, a prophecy, alien spacecrafts and lots of Led Zeppelin.

If you thought that was bananas filmmaking, its sequel is the whole fruit basket.

“Thor: Love and Thunder” — a rare Marvel fourth installment for one character — has giant bleating goats, a horrible Zeus, children in cages, space dolphins, Jodie Foster jokes, teddy bears with laser eyes, an Old Spice commercial parody, Natalie Portman headbutting a villain, blue aliens and lots of Guns N’ Roses.

Waititi is back as the co-writer, director and the voice for the stony Korg, with Chris Hemsworth as our space Viking, a man who really needs to get more credit for taking Thor over the years from glum to hysterical. His ability to pronounce superhero things dramatically and then become a goofball is endlessly endearing. Also back are Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Jaimie Alexander’s Sif.

One problematic character back is Jane Foster, Thor’s ex whom he still pines for eight years after they broke up and she skipped the third film. But now Foster — played by Portman — has Thor’s old magical hammer, Mjolnir, and has become a superhero of her own, the Mighty Thor. She’s working on a catchphrase, like “Eat this hammer!”

Thor, of course, has moved on not with his romantic feelings, but with his favored weaponry. He wields the enchanted axe Stormbreaker now. He has no eyes for Mjolnir—or does he? “We good? I know it’s a little weird having my ex-weapon around,” he asks his axe in a deliciously loony scene, basically reflecting a love triangle between a Norse god and two metal armaments.

Our villain this time is superb: Christian Bale plays the deliciously named Gorr the God Butcher. A once-pious man who prayed in vain to the deities, he has now decided to wipe them out after having a personal setback. Bale is so creepy and so committed that you can feel his hatred melt your popcorn. “The gods will use you but they will not help you,” he snarls.

Another punch of the bizarre comes from Russell Crowe, who plays Zeus as a vainglorious tyrant with a Roman outfit (a riff off “Gladiator”?) and an atrocious Mediterranean accent. He is surrounded by lackeys— some called Zeusettes—and frustrates Thor, even stripping him of his clothes, to the delight of many in the audience. “You know what they say: Never meet your heroes,” says the Viking.

The whipsaw from death and suffering to idiocy is staggering, with Jennifer Kaytin Robinson credited alongside Waititi for a script that seems like it was pasted together after gerbils ripped up a bag of words. You go from a hospital room on Earth dealing with a terminal illness to Thor dressed as a hot dog to a shadow realm in low gravity where the film goes completely black and white. There is very little logic and the connections between scenes are tenuous, giving the film a feeling of not building to anything clear.

Peak lunacy is reached at the Omnipotence City, where the universe’s gods hang out. There is the Aztec God, various Maori Goddesses, the Mayan God and a round dough called Bao, God of Dumplings. It’s a gag that seems out of a Mel Brooks film but the way the Marvel Cinematic Universe is going, don’t be surprised to see the 47th installment called “Bao: Steam and Sauce.”

The film is stacked with cameos—many of which critics aren’t permitted to reveal—but look for Hemsworth’s real-life wife and one of his sons, a bunch of fed-up Guardians of the Galaxy and a pretty famous comedienne playing Cate Blanchett’s role from “Ragnarok.” What to make of this glorious, intergalactic mess? There is no better answer than to swipe one of our hero’s catchphrases: “What a classic Thor adventure, Hurrah!”

“Thor: Love and Thunder,” a Walt Disney Studios release that opens in theaters on July 8, is rated PG-13 for “intense sci-fi violence, action, language, partial nudity and some suggestive material.” Running time: 119 minutes. Three stars out of four.

Drug court, probation ordered for Ketchum woman

Single-vehicle crash occurred in December

By EMILY JONES Express Staff Writer

A 27-year-old Ketchum woman will have the opportunity for rehabilitation through the Blaine County Drug Court program following her second conviction of excessive driving under the influence within five years.

According to a police report from Blaine County Sheriff deputy Dallas Faile, the officer stopped Lentz in downtown Ketchum the evening of Dec. 12 for driving without headlights on, turning at a red light without stopping and running a stop sign.

Breath samples Lentz provided showed a blood alcohol content of .21 and .22, respectively, nearly three times the legal limit of .08, Faile wrote. The deputy also noted “sideswipe damage” and a cracked taillight on Lentz’s vehicle.

According to Faile’s report, a Ketchum city employee reported shortly after the traffic stop that he had seen Lentz hit his truck in a parking lot along Warm Springs Road that same day and hit a sign before fleeing. Police verified the employee’s account after the employee brought in pieces of broken taillight that matched Lentz’s SUV, Faile wrote, and Lentz was charged with excessive driving under the influence for a second time within five years—a felony— in addition to misdemeanor marijuana possession, misdemeanor drug paraphernalia possession, misdemeanor driving with an open container of alcohol, misdemeanor leaving the scene of an accident resulting in property damage, and misdemeanor failing to report

striking a roadway fixture.

Lentz pleaded guilty to the felony DUI charge and misdemeanor failure-to-report charge in exchange for dismissal of the remaining lesser charges on April 18. As a result of her guilty plea, Fifth District Judge Ned Williamson sentenced Lentz on July 5 to a total not-to-exceed sentence of five years—with three years on probation and an indeterminate period of custody lasting up to two years if she violates any terms of her probation—as well as a three-year driver’s license suspension and 30 days in county jail.

Williamson also ordered Lentz to pay a $5,000 fine with $4,000 suspended and as a condition of her probation, start attending Blaine County Drug Court—an intensive program that includes group therapy, a meeting once a week in front of a judge and scrupulous drug testing and monitoring—starting on Thursday, July 7. He further ordered Lentz to begin serving her month-long jail term through work release starting on Friday, July 8, and pay the county $500 for public defender reimbursement.

Williamson noted that Lentz could see the restoration of some of her driving privileges depending on her success in Drug Court but warned that consequences would be “severe” if she continued drinking and driving.

Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Stacie Summerhill, speaking on behalf of the state, noted that the city of Ketchum had not made a claim for vehicle damage and that the speed limit sign was only “nominally” damaged by Lentz. She also stressed that Drug Court would be an important component of Lentz’s sentence and hoped the program would give Lentz the “tools and resources” to manage addiction.

In a statement to the court, Lentz said she was concerned about making rent and staying employed throughout her jail term, but believed she was ready for sobriety.

By ANDREW GUCKES Express Staff Writer

The city of Ketchum and developer Jack Bariteau agreed this week to remove an opt-out clause from a recently approved settlement agreement between the two parties.

The eliminated clause previously required the KURA to

provide more than $1 million to the hotel’s developers for infrastructure repairs at an off-site location, or the developers could pull out of the deal.

With the elimination of the clause, the KURA is not faced with considering the funding under the possibility of the hotel developer and project owner opting out of the settlement agreement, which was put in place to allow the long-stalled project on Main Street to proceed.

“In this case, [Harriman Hotel financial backer] Andy Blank has said that if the KURA funds do not come through this time, he will ‘step up his financing’ to cover that part of the project. That’s why [the developers] are OK with waiving this condition,” City Attorney Matthew Johnson said.

Little Park in Ketchum to receive makeover

Project is primarily aimed at increasing quality of downtown greenspace and improving ADA access

Ketchum’s leadership wants better parks in the downtown core—especially for those with disabilities—and it has tagged Little Park as the recipient of $54,000 from this year’s Capital Improvement Fund for such a makeover.

The park, located at the corner of Fifth Street East and Alpine Lane, will receive a number of renovations that are based on an analysis of needs by the city and input from the public via two open houses and a two-week online survey.

“We don’t have a ton of green space right in the heart of downtown, and especially with the Bluebird project coming in across the street, we want to make sure more of the [park] is working for different interests,” said City Administrator Jade Riley.

Notable planned additions to

the park include improvements to the park’s irrigation system, new fencing, sidewalks and pathways that cover more ground across the property, an inground slide, an area with stand alone chairs and a shade sail, ADA-accessible benches, swings and water fountains. Also, new trees, shrubs and flowers will be planted. City staff will also consult with the Arts Commission on redesigning a statue located in the park, which some parents expressed safety concerns about.

Riley noted several goals that drove the planning of this project. In addition to increasing the green space in the city core and improving ADA access, Riley said the city hopes to better unite the park with its neighbors: the Homestead Cabin and Ore and Wagon Museum.

“The current design makes people question if it is a park or someone’s front yard,” Riley said.

Some of the public comments submitted to the city echoed this

idea. “Please consider closing the alley and incorporating the Wagon Museum as part of the park,” read one.

Another theme among the public’s statements was questioning whether this is a necessary expense for the city. However, as one anonymous citizen pointed out, this would serve as the only fully public playground for kids in the city limits if it were built, as the Hemingway STEAM School play equipment is not open to the public during school hours.

A survey of approximately 30 people identified the top priorities for this project as accessibility and increased pathways, as well as construction of shaded seated areas.

The City Council approved the master plan, but city staff still need to set a schedule and decide which parts of the project to take on first. Riley said that some of the work will be done in-house and some will have to be contracted out.

Ketchum Arts Festival returns this weekend

18 new Blaine County Artists join annual fair

For 24 years, the Ketchum Arts Festival has celebrated local culture.

It will return to Festival Meadow this weekend, July 8-10. The festival will be open 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. on Sunday.

This year, there will be 125 artists, including 18 new Blaine County artists. The crafts span from jewelry to paintings to ceramics.

Lisa Horton is a staple in the local arts scene.

“Ketchum Arts Festival is still a locals kind of event featuring Blaine County artists first and foremost,” Horton said. “Our home-grown artists infuse their work with local character, reflecting the outdoor spirit of our valley. Other artists from around Idaho are added to fill in the gaps and give the show that special somethin’ somethin’.”

This event is free. There will be a kids activity area. Food and drink vendors include Sun Valley Brewing Company, Wood Fire Pizza and Grill, Maui Wowi Coffee & Smoothies and Mini Donuts.

“KAF is the perfect venue to connect with friends, see what’s new and hoist a glass,” Horton said. “Even your dog (on a leash, of course) can

Blaine County most vaccinated in Idaho IDAHO

Continued from Page 1

cases in Idaho from Monday to Wednesday, bringing the total count since the start of the pandemic to just over 466,000.

Nationally, numbers have also been slowly rising. The CDC’s daily sevenday moving average of case numbers was just over 106,000 on July 5, with nearly 170,000 new cases recorded that day. The daily seven-day average had dropped to about 26,000 in March, after the new-case count surged to more than a million in one day in early January.

COVID-related hospitalizations have also been steadily increasing since early April, CDC reports indicate.

Meanwhile, Idaho’s COVID-19 vaccination rate continues to lag the national numbers. The CDC reported June 30 that approximately 67% of all Americans are “fully vaccinated” but might not have received either one or two booster doses of the available vaccines. In Idaho, approximately 52% of all residents are “fully vaccinated,” the Department of Health and Welfare reported Thursday.

Blaine County is by far the most vaccinated county in Idaho, with 84%

of the population ages 5-plus deemed fully vaccinated. The next highest percentage is in Ada County—which includes Boise—at 65%.

Appointments available for pediatric COVID-19 vaccines

The South Central Public Health District is now scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments for anyone 6 months and older. Appointments at district offices can be made by calling Immunization Services at 208-737-5966.

For COVID-19 vaccine availability at other locations, contact your pediatrician or primary health-care provider.

St. Luke’s Wood River is also scheduling appointments for infants and preschoolers— as well as all other age groups—through its MyChart online portal. It is offering the pediatric Pfizer vaccine through its clinic in Hailey.

Food-conditioned bears reported in SNRA, Fairfield Ranger District

public from the bear while the trap is set.

Rangers had recently noticed bear scat and heard reports of a bear in the area on Saturday night and again on Monday, she said, noting that “the Sawtooth National Recreation Area is bear country, so there was and always will be bear activity in the area.”

“However, this particular bear was not on our radar until this last weekend when all the events took place,” she said.

Wharton said rangers have been enforcing the Forest Service’s summer food-storage order—which was implemented over two years ago to prevent recreational users from attracting black bears—primarily through education.

“In more egregious instances, we have issued citations,” she said.

She said it was also unclear whether SNRA sites saw more traffic this Fourth of July compared to previous years.

“The North Fork Big Wood Area is always pretty busy because of its popularity and close proximity to Ketchum. So the holiday weekend may not have contributed to the crowds as much as we think,” she said.

What to know about the food storage order

The Forest Service’s food storage order— effective in the SNRA until Sept. 6—requires campers and day users to store attractants in locked cars, locked campers or bear-resistant containers. Common attractants include food, beer coolers, cooking oil, lotions, pet foods and empty food and beverage containers.

Violating the rule is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000, though forest personnel have issued warnings before fines in most cases.

Animal carcasses must also be located at least 100 yards away from any camping or sleeping area or National Forest System trail. Black bear hunters using bait stations in the SNRA are exempt from the food storage order, however, and bait stations can use meat, pastries, dog food and syrups, according to Fish and Game.

“Food and garbage storage when camping is very important. Bears are quick learners and have an excellent sense of smell. When food or food scraps is improperly stored, it can

attract bears that can easily get to the food. When this happens, it never turns out favorably for the bear,” the department stated.

Past incidents at SNRA campsites have involved bears feeding on cooking waste and garbage, usually while visitors are away from their campsites or sleeping. In 2017 alone, over 20 bear incidents were reported. That same year, Fish and Game employees euthanized a male black bear that had gotten into coolers and made physical contact with campers twice, causing the Forest Service to close all camping in the North Fork area.

Tips for minimizing human-bear conflict

Fish and Game is urging campers to keep the following tips in mind to minimize human-bear conflict:

l Never store any food or scented products in your tent.

l Store all food, camp garbage and even toothpaste, soap, lotions and bug spray in your vehicle or camper. Never leave food outside on your picnic table, or even in an unattended or improperly stored cooler.

l A clean camp is very important to not attract bears. Clean all dishes and cooking utensils away from your tent and campsite after each meal.

l If food storage in a vehicle is not possible, hang your food in a tree 10 to 15 feet off the ground, at least 100 yards from your campsite. Make sure that the bag is at least 4 feet from the tree trunk. Ideally, campers are encouraged to have a bear-resistant food canister to store their camp groceries.

l Remember that pet food can also attract bears to your campsite. Be sure and secure any pet food after feeding your pet.

l Do not bury food scraps or pour cooking grease on the ground, or in your fire pit.
