Updated COVID-19 boosters arrive in region

Health District reports 32nd COVID-related death in Blaine County

The South Central Public Health District is encouraging Idahoans to get an updated COVID-19 vaccination booster that is now available in the region.

People 12 and older are now eligible to receive updated COVID-19 boosters that give protection against serious illness from prevalent subvariants of the omicron variant of COVID-19.

Doses of the updated COVID19 boosters arrived in south-central Idaho last week and are now available in all South Central Public Health District clinics, the district stated. Pharmacies, health centers and other local clinics are also expected to make appointments available as their booster doses are delivered.

Valley Apothecary in Ketchum reported Friday that it is offering the updated Pfizer booster on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with no appointment necessary.

“This new booster comes just in time to protect us before the respiratory season begins,” said Logan Hudson, the Health District’s Family and Children’s Health Division administrator. “Omicron continues to be the leading COVID-19 variant hitting our region. With school back in session and winter viruses on the horizon, this new vaccine will be a big help in keeping us healthy.”

The updated boosters have been authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The new boosters are the first omicron-specific vaccines to be made available in the United States. They target the original strain of COVID-19, as well as the BA.4 and BA.5

‘Optimistic’ crews turn tables on Ross Fork Fire

Precipitation helps stem spread of Sawtooth Valley blaze

The Ross Fork Fire was 13% contained Tuesday morning—up from 2% heading into the weekend—marking the first streak of major gains against the 37,612 acre burn scarring the southwestern Sawtooth Valley.

Stymied by cooler, wetter weather—and hemmed in by increasingly fortified fire lines—the fire grew less than 400 acres Monday into Tuesday, according to information from the Sawtooth National Forest. A week earlier, it spread more than 10,000 acres in a single day.

“We’re certainly moving in the right direction, compared to last week,” Nate Leising, a public information officer with the federal Great Basin Team 3 response unit, told the Express Tuesday afternoon. “The next couple days should be good.”

Leising spoke as much needed rain fell on the fire, aiding efforts to “mop up” hot spots and clear debris in the residential and recreational areas near Smiley Creek, Cabin Creek Road and Alturas Lake Road. Though the fire burned its way to the lake’s southern bank last week, those places were “looking really good” Tuesday, with no building under threat, Leising said.

Some crews will continue to stall the

fire on the south side of Alturas Lake Road, Great Basin Operations Chief Trainee Dan Cather reported Tuesday morning, while others will be “actively patrolling, assessing and working hot spots around the state Highway 75 corridor” and in the community of Smiley Creek.

Cather reported “very little” fire growth Tuesday morning.

“One thing in our favor, we’ve got some active precipitation happening today, possibly over the next two days,” Cather said.

The moisture should stop grasses and sagebrush from burning, according to the Forest Service’s fire behavior analyst assigned to Ross Fork, but “heavier fuels” like substantial trees will continue to burn until “larger amounts of rain or snow fall.”

Containment isn’t expected until Oct. 31.

On Tuesday, the most active portion burned in the remote reaches of the steep Frenchman’s Creek drainage, the fire’s southeastern corner. Citing safety concerns, fire managers are reluctant to commit too many firefighters to that isolated area, Leising said. Some personnel are on the ground monitoring the site, Cather said, with air support watching for hot spots and new growth.

Meanwhile, atmospheric inversion that had been bottling smoke around the fire broke Monday, allowing aircraft to take aim

at some of the hottest portions of the fire in the Vienna Creek drainage, Jake’s Gulch and southwest of Vienna Creek, the Forest Service said in a statement.

“We’re just trying to keep this into areas where we can keep the fire in check,” he said.

As of Tuesday morning, the Type 2 Great Basin Team 3 marshaled 14 hand crews, 48 engines and eight helicopters against the Ross Creek Fire, with a small number of scooper planes gathering water from nearby lakes in support, the Forest Service said. Great Basin’s 712 total personnel would make its fire camp near Fourth of July Creek the second-largest town in Custer County, gaining on Challis, the county seat.

“We still have hand crews out there,” Leising said. “With activity moderating, they’ve made good progress to improve the line. They’re working, trying to get ahead of what may be coming.

“Crews prepare every day like tomorrow is going to be hot, dry and windy. All it takes is one change to get us.”

Over the weekend, those crews included several Hailey firefighters, who were officially hired onto the fire Sunday and stayed in Smiley Creek through Monday morning, Hailey Fire Chief Mike Baledge said.

“It was a rough couple of days,” he said. “But, we buttoned up Smiley Creek, Beaver Creek and almost Alturas.”

Baledge added he was hopeful that the fire would retreat westward into the Sawtooth Wilderness.

Editor’s note: This is the second part of a two-part series. The first installment looked at Hailey’s railroad-town beginnings.

Between 1880 and 1885, more than 150 Chinese immigrants arrived in Hailey and established a row of cabins along River Street that came to be known as “Chinatown.”

The sojourners opened small Chinese restaurants and planted vegetable gardens near the present-day China Gardens subdivision. They took physically demanding, low-paying jobs in town as laundrymen, vegetable and fruit vendors, wood cutters, domestic servants and cooks.

Most hailed from China’s southern Guangdong province, a Cantonese-speaking region along the Pearl River Delta. Some had been in the U.S. for a few decades already, desperate to escape civil war and famine in Guangdong and encouraged by news of the 1849 Sacramento Valley Gold Rush.

Throughout both waves of immigration in the 1850s and 1880s, men from poor inland villages boarded steamships in nearby Hong Kong. It took them $50 in fare—the equivalent of between $1,500 and $1,800 in today’s dollars—and a grueling two months and nearly 7,000 miles to reach San Francisco.

By 1881, approximately two dozen Chinese men came by wagon from California to the Carrie Creek gold prospect west of Hailey where they found work sluicing out gold from gravel with hydraulic jets.

Others laid track for the Oregon Short Line railroad, mined placer gold at the Atlanta and Rocky Bar camps near the base of the Sawtooth range or cooked

for hungry miners at the nearby Bullion, Red Elephant and Triumph mines.

But no matter which lines of work they pursued, Chinese immigrants in the Wood River Valley were met with secondclass treatment at best and racial terrorism at worst.

In the summer of 1882, two Chinese vegetable peddlers were murdered and robbed as they traveled in a wagon along the Little Wood River. A white man was strongly suspected but never caught, according to the Wood River Times.

In the spring of 1883, a white foreman overseeing a crew of a dozen Chinese rail workers near Bellevue bludgeoned a laborer to death with a crowbar and badly beat another, apparently incensed by their refusals to obey his orders. A white assistant yardmaster had forced the crew to load ties at gunpoint prior to the beatings, the Times reported.

Tom Boo, a Chinese vegetable peddler, resided in Hailey in the 1880s. He was robbed of $75 worth of produce by a mob while selling in Bellevue in September 1883, according to the Ketchum Keystone.

Other attacks against Chinese laborers at Western railroad and mining camps began to dissuade Hailey’s Chinese settlers from out-of-town work.

In the fall of 1885, unconfirmed reports emerged in the paper of three Chinese men killed by a white mob in Sawtooth City, near Alturas Lake.

That same fall—in September—at least

40 Chinese coal miners were murdered in Rock Springs, Wyoming. The two-day massacre started with the beatings of two Chinese coal miners by a mob of Irish, English and Scandinavian miners and their wives who feared competition from the camp’s 330 Chinese workers.

As reported in the Wood River Times, 80 homes were burned to the ground in Rock Springs and an estimated 40 to 50 Chinese coal miners, some as young as 23, were murdered.

“Women would come out with shotguns and shoot the Chinamen on one side, while miners with picks, shovels, knives, revolvers, etc., would cut down all who sought safety, in flight, on the other side,” the Wood River Times reported.

With such acts regularly making the news, Hailey’s Chinese residents gravitated toward River Street, where they found a sense of safety and belonging. Full-service washhouses began to spring up on River Street.

Around 1882, Hop Chung—who would become one of Hailey’s most prosperous Chinese laundrymen—opened a Masonic temple on River Street. Chung’s “joss house” welcomed some 75 members of the Chinese Freemasons, a fraternity that

opposed both the Communist and Nationalist regimes in China.

According to the Wood River Times, Chung and other Chinese laundrymen picked up clothes from homes and delivered freshly folded garments by wagon in the summer and dog sled in the winter.

Chinese domestic servants cooked for entire households, shopped for groceries and shuttled families to church in wagons. They “did all [families’] shopping and cooking and everything,” recalled Hailey resident Lucile Friedman, the daughter of Hailey merchant Simon M. Friedman, in a 1981 interview with historian Teresa Bergin.

When the Oregon Short Line reached Hailey in May 1883, more Chinese immigrants arrived in town from San Francisco and Seattle.

“The large number of Chinamen leaving Shoshone and other points south for Bellevue will compel the railroad company to attach a second-class car to the train for that point,” Times editor T.E. Picotte wrote in May 1883.

Around the same time, news broke that the Alturas Water Company would finish the Hailey waterworks by the end of the year—meaning that people would no longer have to rely on water carts when the town’s wells ran dry—and small-scale farming became an increasingly attractive option for Hailey’s Chinese residents.

By December 1883, the $10,000 waterworks project was complete: 6-inch wrought iron pipeline had been laid in ditches from Indian Creek to the intersection of Main and Carbonate streets.

As snow melted off the hillsides the following spring, several Chinatown residents decided to collectively lease a 30-acre plot of land in northern Hailey for

Mountain Man: Wood River Valley resident tops every peak in Blaine County

Like many Wood River Valley residents, Derek Percoski often thinks, “What if I climbed that?” while driving past the mountaintops along state Highway 75.

The difference is, he actually did it— past tense. As of July 15, 2022, Percoski has summited each of the 329 independent peaks in Blaine County. The effort took him nine years total, but he has only been in hyperdrive for a little less than a year.

“Going into this winter, I had the idea that I could finish it on July 15, my birthday,” Percoski said. “I had to reach a certain number of peaks per week to get to that goal, which made it a little bit stressful, but also exciting,” he said.

Percoski summited 5,204 feet Dinosaur Ridge on his birthday along with his wife, Danielle, and dog, Skye, to finish off the list and become the first person registered on “Lists of John”—a database for logging hikes and climbs with maps of every peak in the country. In so doing, he earned the website’s coveted star (which signifies 100% completion of an area) next to the “Blaine County” icon. The only criteria for a peak is that it has 300 feet of vertical separation from any other peaks.

“Last year on my birthday, I finished Idaho’s 11ers on my birthday, so I thought it would be a cool thing to repeat that,” he said. “At first, I thought, ‘This might take me 20 years,’ but soon I realized, ‘No, I’m really going to devote some time to this.’”

From his decision to turn it up a notch last winter to the final hike in mid July, Percoski averaged about two hiking days a week, which each included multiple peaks. He organized the hikes by clusters and started knocking off different zones of land across the county.

The first group he knocked off comprised the tallest peaks in the county: Hyndman Peak, Goat Mountain, Brocky Peak and Duncan Ridge, to name a few. These routes often have snow on them late into the year, which required extra planning and gear but were well worth the challenge,


according to Percoski.

The toughest day he had on the trail came in warmer conditions, though.

“I was out Newman Creek last year early in the summer when a thunderstorm came in fast, and I was miles from the car,” he said. “Skye and I hid under a tree and got hailed on through thunder and lightning—that was pretty sketchy.”

But weather isn’t the only obstacle he faced while out hiking.

“The hardest ones to get to were the peaks that were best accessed by private property,” he said. “So, I would have to either go a long way or see if I could get the property owner to give me permission to cross the property. Luckily, each time I needed

to do that I knew someone else who knew them so I didn’t have to make any cold calls.”

This task brought Percoski to many unmarked roadside turnoffs where he would simply park his car and start walking. In fact, this is how his love of climbing things grew- organically, as he roamed the West on a motorcycle.

“I would regularly stop on the side of the road and just start climbing up terrain that looked interesting. I had never really been interested in hiking trails. I just wanted to explore on my own terms,” he said. “That’s why I love Idaho’s mountains. Almost none of them have a trail to the top. It’s more like, ‘There’s the thing, now figure out how to get to the top.’ It’s a puzzle you get to solve in your own way.”

Bellevue City Council approves phase two of Strahorn subdivision

48 new homesites planned for Slaughterhouse Canyon

The Bellevue City Council approved a planned unit development application and preliminary plat application for phase two of Strahorn subdivision in Slaughterhouse Canyon on Monday.

The approvals will allow developer Jeff Pfaeffle to build an additional 48 units at Strahorn subdivision, bringing a total of 94 residential lots to the new development in east Bellevue.

Pfaeffle’s 161 acres were annexed into Bellevue in 2009 for Strahorn subdivision in exchange for fees and land transfers, including 61 acres in east Slaughterhouse Canyon dedicated to the city. Monday’s addition is expected to bring high value homes to the city.

“These lots will be worth $700,000, with homes on them,” said Pfaeffle’s engineer Greg Loomis, who presented plans to address floodplain, water and sewer issues during the public meeting.

The development team has one year to build streets and other infrastructure in phase two for a final plat approval, by which time covenants, codes and restrictions must be written for a homeowners’ association charged with maintenance and management of all open space and common areas, including weed mitigation.

The PUD and preliminary plat were approved with an understanding that the applicant will create a channel in Slaughterhouse Creek to divert possible flooding and remove all lots from the floodplain. The channel design will require federal FEMA approval.

Loomis said during warm springs it is possible

that “rain on snow” events could bring considerable flooding through the canyon, but that recent high water flood years in the Big Wood River produced no flooding at the site.

“In 2017 and 2006, nothing was coming out of there,” Loomis said.

Traffic, sewer and water issues were also discussed Monday, all of which were addressed to the satisfaction of the council.

Phase two of Strahorn will utilize 48 of the 250-300 available housing sewer hook-ups the city’s wastewater treatment facility currently has capacity for.

Upon final buildout of Strahorn, an additional 530 vehicles will be driving to and from the subdivision.

City Councilman Chris Johnson, who voted along with the rest of the council to approve phase two, said the city would be struggling with understaffed departments to keep up with the inspections needed to develop the new lots.

In other Bellevue news:

• The City Council approved a $10,000 expense to support Mountain Rides public transportation services.

• The City Council approved a proposed Urban Renewal Agency expense budget for 2023 of $203,500, based on expected $215,000 in revenues. The BURA board plans to work smoothing alleyways for easier travel and increasing water meters in the commercial center.

• The City Council approved the purchase of a heat exchanger for the sewer facility at a cost of $1,835.36

Idaho Gov. Brad Little signs letter opposing student loan forgiveness plan

Idaho Gov. Brad Little is one of 22 governors across the country to sign a letter to President Joe Biden opposing his plan to forgive a portion of student loan debt, saying the plan will encourage more student borrowing, incentivize higher tuition rates and exacerbate inflation.

The governors of Montana, Alaska, Utah and Wyoming also signed the letter that was sent to the White House on Monday.

Biden announced a plan to forgive up to $10,000 in student loan debt for individuals with an income of less than $125,000, and $250,000 for a household’s income. That amount is extended to $20,000 for borrowers who received Pell Grants as students, a program for undergraduate students who come from households with the lowest incomes. Pell Grant recipients are still subject to the income thresholds.

“Only 16-17% of Americans have federal student loan debt, and yet, your plan will require their debts be redistributed and paid by the vast majority of taxpayers,” the letter states.

According to the Education Data Initiative, 34% of adults between the ages of 18 and 29 and 22% of adults between the ages of 30 and 44 owe student loan debt. Borrowers between the ages of 25 and 34 owe an average of $33,429, or about 69% of their median annual income.

The governors also say the plan shifts the burden of debt from the wealthiest Americans with a “regressive impact that harms lower income families.”

“Simply put, your plan rewards the rich and punishes the poor,” the letter said.

In Idaho, according to the Initiative, the median annual income for those who hold student loan debt is $60,999, while the average amount of student debt is $33,100.

The governors wrote that many borrowers worked hard, made sacrifices and paid off their debt, and Americans who chose not to take out student loans should not be forced to pay for the loans of others.

“A high-cost degree is not the key to unlocking the American Dream — hard work and personal responsibility is,” the letter said.

A recent Penn Wharton budget model found that a one-time loan forgiveness of $10,000 would mostly benefit borrowers in the bottom four lowest quintiles of incomes, ranging in incomes from $28,784 to $82,400.

They also point out that some economists, including Larry Summers, who served as director of the National Economic Council under former President Barack Obama, have said the plan will worsen inflation. Other economists say the effect will be minor.

“Bipartisan opposition to your plan includes more than economic objections but process problems as well. As president, you lack the authority to wield unilateral action to usher in a sweeping student loan cancellation plan, a position shared by leaders of your party,” the letter said, citing a quote from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, saying only Congress has that power. “For these reasons and more, we call on you to withdraw your student loan plan immediately.”

Wolves don’t hunt like bears and mountain lions.

Wolves lack the brute force and size of a bear, and the stealth and gripping claws of a mountain lion. The strength of wolves is their pack. They work together as a wellorchestrated team.

Mountain lions will ambush large prey, while bears quickly overpower them.

Both are solitary hunters, relying on explosive, short bursts of energy.

In contrast, wolves have great stamina and get the herd to run.

In the chase, each wolf has a specific role. Together, the pack works as one, driving the herd to expose the weaker animals. By selecting the vulnerable, wolves keep herds healthy and strong.

Long COVID is costing Idaho thousands of full-time workers, data suggests

New census data and a Brookings Institution analysis show potential harm to jobs

An estimated 7.8% to 10.5% of all Idaho adults were suffering from the aftereffects of COVID19 infections this summer, according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Those estimates are based on Idahoans’ selfreported experiences with COVID-19 and “long COVID,” in a new round of surveys the bureau rolled out between June and August. At the time, increasingly infectious versions of the omicron coronavirus variant spread through Idaho.

Idaho adults were far more likely to report ongoing health problems from COVID19 than the national average of 7.5% to 7.6%.

“Long COVID” is a constellation of lingering medical issues that can range from loss of smell and taste, to debilitating symptoms that a growing number of studies attribute to COVID-19’s damage to the heart, lungs, circulatory system, brain and other organs.

The Idaho Capital Sun reported last month that, based on a fraction of Idaho’s insurance claims, a minimum of 1,400 Idahoans needed health care for long COVID since October.

And a new report from The Brookings Institution suggests that long COVID is one of the drivers of an ongoing labor crisis.

It is part of a growing body of research on the economic impacts of COVID-19. Economists on Monday published findings that long COVID has taken at least 500,000 workers out of the U.S. labor force.

Analysis: Long COVID dented Idaho’s labor force

Based on the nationwide census data, which was broken down by age group, the Brookings report estimated that as many as 4 million people are out of work in the U.S. because of post-infection COVID19 health conditions.

Using the same formula as the Brookings report, a Sun analysis found that long COVID may have taken 7,800 to 17,800 of Idaho’s full-time employees out of the labor force.

“Since the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic through today, news about labor shortages and missing workers has dominated headlines,” the report said. “The question everyone still seems to be asking is: Why?”

Researchers have tried to answer that question, and a January report from Brookings looked at the potential role of COVID-19. At that time, Brookings estimated that “long COVID” could have taken more than 1 million people out of the labor force — accounting for as much as 15% of the unfilled jobs at the time.

But earlier this year, the U.S. Census Bureau began to survey Americans about COVID-19 and how it affected them. The answers were illuminating, the Brookings report said. The census data suggested about 2 million to 4 million American adults under age 65 were out of work due to long COVID in June and July.

That takes an economic toll, the Brookings report said: an estimated $105 billion to $235 billion per year in lost wages alone.

The report referenced a study from a Harvard University economist who estimated the total cost of long COVID on the U.S. economy: more than $3 trillion, including $1 trillion in net lost income, as people recover from COVID-19 but have lingering health issues that affect their ability to work.

“These impacts stand to worsen over time if the U.S. does not take the necessary policy actions,” the Brookings report said.

The report recommended five policy actions:

• Better prevention and treatment options

• Expanded paid sick leave

• Better accommodations for employees with disabilities from long COVID

• Improved access to disability benefits and Medicare health insurance

• More data, such as through collaboration between federal census, labor statistics and health researchers.

“The government should take the threat of long COVID as seriously as the numbers show it to be,” the Brookings report said, “starting with the recommendations above and continuing until we can fully treat and neutralize the condition’s economic and personal health impacts.”

Ketchum City Council finalizes fiscal 2023 budget


The Ketchum City Council voted unanimously on Sept. 6 to approve the third and final reading of the city budget for the 2023 fiscal year.

The $37.9 million plan is primarily focused on “addressing inflation costs, retaining employees and continuing to make sure we have good operational service on the street,” City Administrator Jade Riley told the Express during an interview in July.

The new budget represents a 17.7% increase over the $32.2 million budget adopted a year ago for fiscal 2022.

The money is split into different pots, including the General Fund, Capital Improvement Fund, Water and Wastewater funds, and seven “trusts or restricted purpose funds,” according to the city’s budget packet.

The General Fund contains a little more than a third of the total revenue, at $12.5 million. The General Fund is the city’s main source of funding for everyday operations like emergency services and street maintenance. Property taxes, state revenue sharing, Local Option Tax funds, planning and building permits and franchise fees are the main components that make up the General Fund. A little less than half of the General Fund comes from property tax collections.

The General Fund Capital Improvement Fund totals a little more than $2.5 million. About half of that will be used for facility repairs, while a little less than a third will be put towards street and sidewalk repairs. The Capital Improvement Fund will

also be the source of funding for the first phase of updates to Warm Springs Preserve, which was purchased by the city earlier this year with about $9 million in donations. Those updates include implementation of bathrooms, benches, and donor signage, as well as the repair of riparian zones.

Local-option-tax revenue is projected to reach approximately $2.8 million in fiscal 2023, which will primarily go to funding two budget items: emergency services and funding for Mountain Rides transportation services. These items represent 61% and 25% of the LOT allocations, respectively. Events account for 2% of LOT funds, and the remaining 12% is split among a variety of local organizations such as Mountain Humane, Sun Valley Economic Development and the Idaho Dark Sky Alliance.

One question heading into the fiscal year is how the city will pay for its share of a $37 million overhaul of the wastewater treatment plant it shares with Sun Valley. While the city budgeted some money towards the project, it will ask voters in November to approve a revenue bond of $14 million to help finance upgrades. In addition to the revenue bond, the city plans to raise wastewater rates to help pay for its share of the improvement projects, the total cost of which will be split evenly with Sun Valley Water and Sewer. In a meeting earlier this month, Ketchum Mayor Neil Bradshaw noted that a revenuebond issue and increased fees would have “no impact on property taxes.”

The city’s fiscal year starts Oct. 1.

Spend for dollars instead of saving for nickels

Tripping over dollars to save nickels has been the guiding philosophy of the United States economy for half a century. Time to reverse that misguided frugality and spend some of those nickels so everyone has a fair shot at the dollars.

Women lost far more than men from the COVID-19 pandemic. They were 1.8 times more vulnerable to job loss, according to the consulting firm McKinsey & Company, largely because unpaid care burdens for children and elders in the U.S. fall disproportionately on women.

The U.S. is the only wealthy country in the world that has no national paid leave. This failure is more than a display of hardheartedness. It has a negative impact on the economy as well.

Having researched the issue, Louisiana, Maryland, Georgia, Washington and Indiana discovered each state lost over $1 billion annually in economic activity due to breakdowns in childcare, as reported in Forbes. Denying tax dollars for childcare or paid

Thanks in ways that count

Firefighting is not just a job; it is a calling. If it were not for those who answer the call, Blaine County would be a far less hospitable place.

Firefighters have saved the county and its cities from major conflagrations many times. In a changing climate, they are critical to keeping our communities habitable and alive. Residents and visitors owe them a debt that they can never repay for saving their homes, businesses and recreation spots from total destruction.

Firefighters don’t do it for the money. Why would anyone think that breathing smoke-filled air with often unknown substances, getting average wages and facing the daily possibility that you could be consumed by flames is a great job? Wildland fighters even get the “perk” of getting to sleep on the ground every night.

Firefighters have saved our area’s bacon many times. Last Saturday evening was one of those times when flames engulfed the 26-unit Limelight condos on Warm Springs Road in Ketchum.

The fire left the condos charred, collapsed and uninhabitable. However, without the Ketchum Fire Department’s four-minute response time and the support of other fire departments, it could have been much worse. Sparks could have ignited other

family and medical leave is just part of a too common and cruel aversion to providing a social safety net as a legitimate government function.

Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Florida, argued recently that making it easier to use Women, Infants and Children funds (food stamps) to buy baby formula would somehow “crowd out hardworking American Families.” Philip Gunn, speaker of the Mississippi House of Representatives, made sure Medicaid coverage for mothers was not extended for up to a year after the birth of a child.

Making women responsible for every single dollar of raising a child so taxpayers don’t have to spend another nickel is a cruel version of misguided frugality in public spending. Cutting taxes as the primary function of government has been going on since President Ronald Reagan took over the soul of the Republican Party.

Saving public nickels, however, isn’t what made America the envied superpower of the 20th century. President Franklin Roosevelt’s

New Deal put federal dollars into American pockets in the form of wages for building dams, maintaining the infrastructure of national parks, sculpting and painting and writing and taking photographs, and becoming civil servants.

In World War II, the United States spent 40% of its entire economic output on the war effort of the federal government. Focused on spending dollars to win the war rather than saving nickels, free childcare and other benefits helped women become the productive work force necessary to win that war.

Sadly, that support ended when the war did. According to the 38-member Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, by 2020 the United States ranked 32nd in the percentage of gross domestic product collected in taxes, ahead of Turkey but behind every industrialized nation that has recognized the economic benefit of supporting the working lives of its citizens.

Tax cuts may save some nickels, but supporting the caregiving needs of workers would produce far more dollars.

residences in the closely packed neighborhood, or heaven forbid, spread to the tinder-dry, thickly forested slopes of Bald Mountain.

Federal wildland firefighting crews have been working since Aug. 12 to curb the Ross Fork Fire whose 36,000 acres to date have consumed a couple of buildings, threatened Smiley Creek Lodge and burned to the edges of Alturas Lake on the north and through the headwaters of the Salmon River.

Winds have driven it to the southwest of Galena Lodge. Only the knowledge and skills of the teams on the ground and in the air have kept this latest monster at bay and from moving faster.

Boise’s LGBTQ+ community isn’t a prop for marketing campaigns

Pearl-clutching was at an all-time high in Boise last week as newly appointed Idaho GOP Chairwoman Dorothy Moon whipped far-right Idahoans into a moral panic over the Boise Pride Festival’s subsequently canceled drag show for kids.

In a misunderstanding of drag so egregious it would be funny were it not for the underlying insinuations, Moon claimed the show exemplified “the sexualization of our children and the perverse idea that children should engage in sexual performances with adult entertainers.”

Many, many experts and journalists have

explained far better than I can how and why drag is not inherently sexual. Even the Encyclopedia Britannica classifies it not as a sexual proclivity, but as performance art.

But let’s be real: Claims that a kids’ drag show, or drag story time, or any exposure of children to drag queens sexualize children or put them at risk are claims made in bad faith. They’re nothing more than an attempt to resurrect the thoroughly

debunked myth that there’s an association between homosexuality and pedophilia.

If Moon and her extremist supporters actually want to protect children, they may be interested to know that homophobia puts LGBTQ+ children at increased risk for violence and is a major contributing factor for the nearly one-third of LGBTQ+ youth who attempt suicide.

Coming soon: The Apocalypse, maybe

Just about every video game, young adult novel and buzz-worthy streaming series agrees that we need to prepare for a post-apocalyptic world. Up ahead, around a sharp curve or off a cliff, it is waiting—The Apocalypse.

Maybe not “the complete final destruction of the world,” but certainly “an event involving destruction or damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale,” to quote the two definitions in the Oxford Online Dictionary. Not yet, but soon.

This has me wondering: How will we know when we move from pre- to post-apocalypse? This summer, my hometown in southern Oregon was crushed under a heat dome, sweltering in triple-digit temperatures. A fire across the state line ignited and within 24 hours exploded to become California’s largest wildfire this year so far.

The two mountain lakes that provide water to our valley orchards and vineyards are at 2% and 6% full, that is, 98% and 94% empty. Last year, an even more severe heat dome pushed temperatures in normally cool Seattle and Portland to record-shattering levels, wildfires burned more than a million acres in Oregon and 2,000-year-old giant sequoias perished in fires of unprecedented severity in California’s Sierra Nevada.

Catastrophic extremes are becoming normal. The Great Salt Lake is at the lowest level ever recorded, spawning toxic dust storms. A mega-drought has shriveled the Colorado River, with the beginning of major cutbacks in water deliveries to Arizona and Nevada. Elsewhere in the West, flooding devastated Yellowstone National Park in June, collapsing roads and leading to the evacuation of over 10,000 visitors.

Widening our view, Dallas is currently inundated with what is described as a “1,000-year” flooding event, following similar flooding disasters in Las Vegas, St. Louis and Kentucky earlier this summer. Across the Atlantic, Europe was scorched by the highest temperatures ever recorded this summer, triggering massive wildfires, the collapse of a glacier in Italy and over 10,000 heat-related deaths. India, China, and Japan experienced record heat waves this year.

I could go on, but no doubt you have read the news, too, about climate-caused apocalyptic events. Closely related is the global extinction crisis, with over a million species at risk by the end of this century. Bird populations in the United States have collapsed by one-third in the past 50 years, and the world’s most diverse ecosystems, including tropical rainforests and coral reefs, could largely disappear in coming decades.

Let’s also not forget the COVID-19 pandemic, which has killed at least 6.46 million people worldwide and sickened 597 million. That pandemic shows no sign of ending as the virus continues to evolve new variants. Meanwhile, the new global health emergency of monkeypox has been declared. And polio, once eliminated in this country, is back, thanks to people who aren’t vaccinated. What about America’s social fabric? According to a poll taken this summer by the New York Times, a majority of Americans surveyed now believe that our political system is too divided to solve the nation’s problems. The nonprofit Gun Violence Archive has documented 429 mass shootings so far this year in America, with “mass shootings” defined as at least four people killed or injured.

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade has led to a rapid and stark division of the country into states that permit abortions versus those that outlaw it. Republicans and Democrats increasingly live in separate media universes, with both sides concerned about the possibility of a civil war.

I admit this is a staggering list of “damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale,” but I’m not ready to declare myself a citizen of the post-apocalypse. We don’t have to live there. Instead, let’s accept that humanity and the whole planet are “apocalypse-adjacent.” The apocalypse is before us and we can see it clearly. But the world is not yet ruined.

Human beings do have this redeeming and also infuriating trait: We are at our most creative and cooperative when it is almost too late. We can — we must — pull each other back from the brink. To fail is to condemn our children to live in the hellscape of a dystopian video game. As they will tell you, that is no place to be.

Help long-term care residents be heard

October is National Long-Term Care Residents’ Rights Month, a time to acknowledge the contributions and sacrifices many long-term care (LTC) residents have made to better our community and to call attention to the rights of residents in long-term care facilities.

Being a part of a community is essential to our well-being. Throughout the pandemic, residents of long-term care facilities were disconnected from the resident and staff communities within their facilities when activities and group dining were limited.

Residents were disconnected from the broader local community when visitation was restricted, and many residents were unable to leave their facilities to participate in outside activities. This year’s Residents’ Rights Month theme “Inspiring Unity within Our Community” emphasizes the importance of fostering meaningful community within the facility and encouraging residents’ connection to their local community.

Residents’ Rights Month is an opportunity to focus on and celebrate awareness of dignity, respect and the rights of each resident. The federal Nursing Home Reform Law guarantees residents’ rights and places a strong emphasis on individual dignity, choice, and selfdetermination. The law also requires nursing homes to “promote and protect the rights of each resident.”

Residents’ Rights Month is a time to raise awareness of these rights and celebrate residents.

Celebrate and acknowledge these rights by participating in Residents’ Rights Month events and calling on your local facilities to show their support by attending or organizing activities.

During Residents’ Rights Month, we recognize our local long-term care ombudsman program staff and volunteers, who work daily to promote residents’ rights, assist residents with complaints and provide information to those who need to find a long-term care facility. In this area, the ombudsman program serves 38 Assisted Living Facilities (1,032 beds) and 12 Skilled Nursing Facilities (713 beds). We advocate for the residents residing in eight counties of the Magic Valley, (Blaine, Camas, Cassia, Gooding, Jerome, Lincoln, Minidoka, and Twin Falls) to improve the quality of life for those who live in long-term care facilities.

As CSI Office on Aging Ombudsman Program celebrates Residents’ Rights, I encourage community members to connect with those they know who live in long-term care facilities, participate in Residents’ Rights Month events, or inquire about becoming a volunteer long-term care ombudsman. Your assistance and attention help to ensure that the voices of longterm care residents do not go unheard and demonstrates to residents that they have not been forgotten.

There’s a fine line between allyship and rainbow-washing

legitimately gross.

It’s appalling that our legislators are couching their blatant homophobia in concern “for the children.” Even more appalling are the sponsors that succumbed to political pressure from the GOP’s lunatic fringe and pulled their support from the Boise Pride Festival altogether.

There’s a fine line for businesses between allyship and rainbowwashing. Corporate social responsibility is all the rage right now as businesses try to figure out how best to pry whatever money they can from the wallets of cashstrapped, skeptical and mediasavvy Millennials and Gen Z-ers. But even the most earnest corporate moral posturing can feel a bit cynical. When it’s merely performative activism, with no real effort to stand behind a cause, it’s

Marginalized communities like Boise’s LGBTQ+ community aren’t props for marketing campaigns. They’re real human beings facing structural injustices every day in this country. Supporting marginalized communities means having their backs when it’s hard, particularly when it’s not financially benefiting you and when the people marginalizing those communities loudly decry your support.

If you or your organization only support marginalized communities when it’s convenient, when it makes you look good or when it brings you business, that’s not support. That’s marketing. And it’s disgusting that you think it’s OK to pretend you care about people who are struggling just to line your own pockets.

Mad props to all the sponsors who continue to support the Boise Pride Festival and who understand

that LGBTQ+ people don’t spring forth fully formed as adults but start off as kids who have every right to enjoy and express their identities. You are the organizations that exemplify the warmth and kindness of the Idahoans I’ve had the pleasure to live among for the past 30 years.

And to those sponsors who pulled their support to appease the extremist faction that’s currently debasing the Idaho Republican Party: Do better.

‘Under the Jello Mold’ finds comedy in tragedy

One-woman show comes to the Argyros Friday

Before her mother’s funeral, a rabbi asked Jennie Fahn if she wanted to do the eulogy. She declined.

“It was just too raw, and I knew I would get too emotional,” Fahn said.

However, she told the rabbi someday she would do a one-woman show about her mother. He thought she was joking. She wasn’t.

“That was the only way to really pay tribute to her,” Fahn said. “She is a larger than life character.”

“Under the Jello Mold” comes to The Argyros Friday, Sept. 16, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range $10-$40.

“Doing this show—about the death of my mom— is a very joyful way of paying tribute to her,” Fahn said.

Her mother was the life of the party. Delightfully irreverent, she never missed the chance to embellish a story or drop a name.

“People enjoy meeting her—it’s my privilege to introduce people to her,” Fahn said.

Her mother hid postmortem instructions under the jello mold. No one could have expected the secret she was hiding.

In an interview with the Express, Fahn’s energy burst over the phone. For a show about death, it is quite funny.

“We all think absurd thoughts. Comedy is the freedom to say them out loud,” Fahn said. “We need the release of being able to laugh in that absurdity. It’s the reason some people laugh at funerals. It’s very freeing. You have to be able to laugh, even through pain.”

She used to warn people not to attend the show if they had recently lost a loved one, worrying it may hit too close to home. That was until a woman came up to her after a performance and thanked her. Hugging Fahn, the woman said her mom had just died a week ago, and she hadn’t laughed in a year and a half.

B-Team,” “The Middle,” “Heroes,” “Without A Trace,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “My Name Is Earl” and “Will And Grace.”

Growing up, she performed puppet shows with her best friend for all the neighborhood kids.

“It was in my body, I was born this person who wanted to be onstage,” Fahn said. “That’s just who I was.”

They organized carnivals and sold tickets for 10 cents. The script for the show “Happy Birthday Mommy Show” is still in the attic somewhere. To this day, Fahn has the same best friend.

“It was a very lasting friendship and experience. I’m not sure about the quality of the script but I’m sure the adults got a kick out of it,” Fahn laughed

While still alive, Fahn’s mom first appeared as a character in her previous one-woman show “You Mutha!” She came to see it many times.

“She was very happy that people loved her character and that she was the star of the show,” Fahn said. “She denied anything in the show was anything she ever actually said, even though it was taken verbatim.”

Whenever her mom said something off the wall, Fahn would run to the bathroom and record a message into her phone to put into the script. Even her father agreed much of it it sounded familiar.

The first iteration of “Under the Jello Mold” came from a monologue about discovering her mother’s body. The morticians were running late because it was a Sunday.

Fahn imagined her mother getting up, standing in the doorway and yelling “What took you so long to get here? I’ve been sitting in this chair since last night!”

At first, she was hesitant to share it with others.

“Do people really want to hear about my mom’s death?”

“Under the Jello Mold” comes to The Argyros Friday, Sept. 16, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range $10-$40.

“She felt so much better because she was given the permission to laugh,” Fahn said. “There’s something healing in being able to laugh. I don’t know if it’s the opposite of crying or if it’s another way of crying. It’s very therapeutic. People look at you funny when you laugh while talking about something tragic.”

In fact, many people come to her after the show.

“Me talking about it helped other people talk about when they experienced death in their family. Everybody experiences it—it’s inevitable. People often don’t feel they have permission to talk about it,” Fahn said. “I don’t just want to do this; I feel like I have to do this.”

This is her first time in Idaho.

“Do a lot of people come to Idaho with preconceptions?” Fahn laughed. “I don’t want to bring up a lot of stereotypes, but as a person bringing a show about my Jewish mom to Idaho, I’m going to guess there may be a slight cultural difference.”

But the beauty of the show is that it relates to anyone.

“Everyone has moms who drive them crazy, and everyone has family secrets ... and we love them anyway, and we will miss them when they’re gone,” Fahn said.

Usually, she knows at least one person in the audience. Friday will be one of the first times she performs to an entire audience of strangers.

“I know there will be a connection,” Fahn said. “I don’t know when it will happen, but I’m looking forward to that moment. The beauty of live theater is making that connection.”

She doesn’t get stage fright anymore, just excitement to tell the story.

“Are they going to receive this in the way I hope they receive it? It’s a little bit of a nervous anticipation, but it’s a good type of anticipation,” Fahn said.

She has worked on TV shows such as “The Walking Dead: World Beyond,” “Grey’s Anatomy:

Fahn wondered. “Can you do a comedy about death? I don’t know.”

Before presenting it to her acting workshop, she gave a trigger warning. As it turns out, they loved it.

“People were hungry to talk about this,” Fahn said.

The next day, her friend Tom Cavanaugh offered to direct and produce the show.

“You say yes when someone offers you that,” Fahn said.

Together, they fleshed the show out from that one monologue.

“Jennie was so willing to go ‘there’ and dig into the truth of the show, and that’s what makes it so personal,” Cavanaugh said. “She works so hard to not just entertain, but to tell an amazing story from her heart.”

When things got emotional during rehearsals, he told her to lean into it.

“He was always willing to be available,” Fahn said. “He was always happy to let me talk something out.”

They learned to trust one another.

“He was always open to trying anything,” Fahn said. “Tom was usually right.”

He taught her less is more.

“The better you become as a writer, the better you become as an actor. As a writer, you have to have an excellent editor. Tom was that for me. As I talk too much, I know you will have to edit the hell out of this interview,” Fahn said. “And that’s fine.”

They brought the show to the Hollywood Fringe Fest.

“It gives people with more experimental type shows or just smaller budgets a way to get their stories out there.”

She went on to win the 2017 award for Best Solo Performance. Critics lauded “Under the Jello Mold” as “unforgettable” and “a tour de force.” Now, she’s friends with many of those same critics on Facebook.

“Is it awkward now? Will they never write a bad review of me? What if I suck?” Fahn laughed. “I’m a big fan of honest feedback.”

Knives out at Central Idaho Renaissance Fair Event raised money for scholarships

In the corner of the Central Idaho Renaissance Fair, a ropedoff section signified “Free Hero Training & Princess Lessons.” Within, kids whacked each other with foam swords.

Cloaks and robes of all sorts sashayed across the meadow. However, the best garb—yes, it’s called garb, not a costume— was flourished with a weapon. Whether a bow and arrow, sword or staff, any knight in shining armor or fair maiden needed a weapon.

Roger and Rebecca Peck continued the Renaissance Fair after their daughter started it for her senior project last year.

“In medieval times, your weapon kept you alive,” Peck said. “Some small kingdoms didn’t have a standing army and the lord or king might call anyone living in his territory to defend it when needed.”

At one point in England, every male over the age of 14 was required to participate in archery practice every Sunday for a few hours under the direction of the clergy.

“They were also a status symbol—the wealthy could afford the best swords because of what it took to make them,” Peck said.

He even brought some of his own swords for photo opportunities, such as a replica of El Cid’s.

“His story is a great story that if emulated by people today would make the world a better place,” Peck said.

Others included an Excalibur replica and a Scottish Claymore.

“I have always been a student of history, and weapons are a big part of that,” Peck said.

Once upon a time, the Central Idaho Renaissance Fair came to the enchanted land of Carey on Sept. 9 and 10. Money raised at the event will fund scholarships for students planning to study history, literature and performing arts education.

On Friday, those hoping to escape the smoke at the Blaine County Fairgrounds found little refuge in Carey. The sun tried to pierce an orange sky.

Although, once at the renaissance fair, smoke was not the only thing in the air. The plucking of lutes and the aroma of smoked meats also tickled the senses.

A girl dressed as a fairy drew caricatures. People inserted their heads and hands into

wooden stocks, just to be silly. A woman painted as a statue sat completely still. For $5, you could spin Sibyl to get any of your questions answered.

Unicorns pulled around a carriage. They weren’t real unicorns—I asked. The ponies gladly accepted pats on the head as long as you approached them with respect.

Michael Collins sat outside his tent for BlackWolf Blades, beard down to his chest, eyes icy blue. He was a geek before it was cool. Back in the 90s, he began collecting knives and swords while playing dungeons and dragons. Now, with the proliferation of “Lord of the Rings” and “Game of Thrones,” he has seen geek culture become mainstream.

At BlackWolf Blades he sells all kinds of medieval weaponry: swords, daggers, axes. He offers both functional, “battle-ready pieces” alongside decorative pieces.

“But don’t hit anything with them,” Collins said. “They’re designed to hang on the wall or hang on your hip and look cool”

He sends his Viking-inspired designs to a custom forge.

Steve Avery of When Pigs Fly Creations handcrafts his own knives out of carbon steel: heat treating, tempering, grinding bevels, sanding the edges. The company also offer saws engraved by a handheld plasma cutter. Designs included Bigfoot and the American flag. They only just started attending Renaissance fairs.

“It’s interesting to watch the people walk around, the costumes and how creative people are,” Avery said. “The idea of being able to talk to new people and support our hobbies a little bit.”

Of course, weaponry was only a small fraction of the vendors. Royal Dogs sold “Peasant Stew.” Littlelota’s sold keto treats. DNH Studios sold handmade flower crowns. Itty Bitty Farms sold pickled eggs and $1 root beer. Merriahna’s offered luxury dreadlocks. There were denim handbags and Johnny Depp on thermoses.

Weapon or no weapon, the Central Idaho Renaissance Fair offered a haven for the “geeks” of all stripes, styles and armaments to unite in Carey.

“We need more of this kind of thing in Idaho,” Collins said of the fair. “I’m happy to see stuff like this happening closer to home.”

Maintenance Work Underway on Hailey–Ketchum–Sun Valley Line

As part of our ongoing commitment to reliable, affordable energy, Idaho Power is performing maintenance work on the transmission line that delivers electricity between Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley.

One outage affecting all of Ketchum and Sun Valley will be necessary. It’s scheduled to start at 10 p.m. on Sept. 28 and end at 6 a.m. on Sept. 29. We’ll bring in extra crews to minimize the outage’s duration.

We apologize for any inconvenience this important project might cause. If you have any questions, please call Amber Larna at 208-788-8049.

10 P.M. SEPT. 28 –6 A.M. SEPT. 29

Wednesday, September 21st: the Ketchum Street Department will close 5th St. (between Main and 2nd Ave.) andRocking Horse Rd., 4th Ave. & Bird Drive for roadway improvements. Wood River Drive will be the detour road for resident access.

The city is testing a ‘fog coat’ treatment that will improve the surface, as well as extend the life expectancy, of the roadway.

Once applied, the roads will be completely closed until the coat has cured. Start time is temperature dependent, but we hope to begin after the morning commute.


We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation. For questions or additional information, please contact: Brian Christiansen

Nick Harman’s creativity knows no bounds

Prankster-inventor has sights set on toy market

Every April Fools’ Day for the last eight years, the Wood River Valley has come to expect an ingenious prank from Ketchum resident Nick Harman. Recently the London-born 53-year-old has turned his attention to board games and children’s toys to cash in on his active imagination.

Many of Harman’s inventions have appeared anonymously. One year, Harman and a silent partner in his April Fools’ Day pranks set up dumpsters from Clear Creek Disposal tricked out like apartments. They were called “Clear Creek Residences,” meant to draw attention to the affordable housing crisis. Likewise, the pair’s “Stay Surly” campaign this year poked fun at the local Stay Sunny marketing campaign aimed at attracting visitors to the valley.

“Our M.O. is to create uncomfortable humor,” said Harman, 53.

During the COVID-19 pandemic Harman devised a “Novel Corona Kit” that featured a wristwatch hand sanitizer case and face mask attached to headphones. He said he sold 5,000 before the pandemic ended.

At times Harman seems to walk a fine line between earnestness and parody. His “And I’m Like” board game makes fun with the filler words and crutch words used in common parlance, such as “I’m like,” “whatever”, “dude” and the like. The game, which came out last year, has a buzzer that players can hit to win points when a useless word is uttered by opponents.

Harman realized that the game could also be used to train effective speech. He took the idea to fruition after contacting Toastmasters International, a nonprofit educational organization that operates clubs worldwide for the purpose of promoting communication, public speaking and leadership.

“They have 400,000 members, so I realized that marketing with them could be huge,” Harman said. “We sold 40 games in one day recently at a Toastmaster’s meeting in Nashville. More games are at Toastmasters headquarters and should be hitting their online store this month.”

His latest invention, “Randimals,” are quirky composite beasts that come with a backstory. They target a younger demographic looking for novelty during an era of inclusivity, Harman said, and they are selling quickly since being identified and amplified by TikTok influencers.

Harman, who moved to the Wood River Valley 27 years ago, said the timing of their appearance on the toy market coincides with a wide interest in diversity.

“Randimals celebrate diversity as a superpower,” he said.

What do you get when you mix a Zebra with a kangaroo? A Zangaroo, of course. An eagle and leopard? A flying feline called an Eagard. The list goes on and Randimal fans are encouraged to create their own combinations.

A companion book about Randimals takes young readers of many cultures, races and gendered backgrounds on a journey from intolerance to multiplicity. Harman designed the book using a composite of creative talents from Upwork freelancer website.

“What makes us different, makes all the difference in the world,” is the Randimal slogan.

Harman’s Randimals are being amplified through postings by multiple TikTok influencers. He said he hopes Randimals will continue to catch on, and that he can continue to keep up with demand. He sells in local stores and has 25,000 of the creatures ready for shipping in a local warehouse.

Harman is not afraid to try something new and different. This time it may pay off big.

“When we first sent these designs to China for manufacturing, they thought we were crazy,” he said. “But one Tik Tok influencer’s video got a million views and caused us to sell out on Amazon.”

Harman posts hilarious animated “wildlife” videos on Tik Tok that fill in the backstory of each creature. He said he has also drawn interest from a film studio that might be interested in creating an animated film based on the toys. For now, he is banking on continued sales.

“Any proceeds from sales goes right back into the company,” he said.

“Our goal is to inspire others to provide similar opportunities for student athletes,” said Ashley Campion. “We understand what it takes to support an athlete making a run at the top in a sport – it’s a heavy lift. It requires total

devotion of time and energy from family, coaches, and friends.”

According to SVSEF, the partnership with ICL grew from a common belief that supporting athletes both athletically and academically brings out their true potential as students and as competitors. ICL’s online model has attracted the support of some of skiing’s big names, including Bode Miller and Andrew Weibrecht.

Nate Schwing, SVSEF’s Alpine U16 Team Head Coach believes that this scholarship and fellowship recognition will help Gowe accomplish her goals.

“This is an incredible opportunity for Natalie to pursue her dreams in skiing while having educational support that can coexist with the demanding training, travel and racing lifestyle that high-achieving ski racers need to maintain,” said Schwing. “Having coached Natalie the last two seasons and witnessed her athletic, mental, and emotional growth, I’m excited to see where her journey takes her now with this inspiring support.”

“I was so surprised and honored to receive the Campion Scholarship along with being named an ICL Fellow,” said Natalie Gowe. “I am beyond grateful to the Campion family and ICL Academy for this amazing opportunity. Their belief in

pursuits academically and athletically is a strong testament to how they want to make a significant difference for ambitious student-athletes, while also inspiring others to do the same.”

‘Jewish Sun Valley’ talk offers novel view of our area’s history

Goldstein: ‘There is a lot of amazing history...waiting to be discovered’

Ari Goldstein knew when he set out to research the history of Jews in South Central Idaho that he was venturing into generally uncharted territories.

“I think that most people don’t think of ‘Jews’ and ‘Idaho’ in the same sentence, and that probably includes most Idahoans,” he said with a laugh. “But Jews have served as governors, postmasters, school principals and philanthropists, among other things.”

Goldstein counts himself as the most recent of a handful of people to research the subject. On Aug. 3, he presented the summation of his work to a crowd of about 150 at The Community Library. This comes at a pivotal time for the Wood River Jewish Community, which is slated to open the doors to its new synagogue in the next calendar year.

“My research coincided with the evolution of our community’s building project; we are preparing to open the first synagogue in Central Idaho, which is a really exciting milestone for our community,” he said.

Goldstein’s interest in this subject is rooted in his own personal history. He spent winters and summers in Sun Valley as a kid, attending Sun Valley Community School camps and working at Perry’s.

One afternoon while researching he found an 1884 article on a Yom Kippur service in Hailey, “My eyes popped out of my head,” he said.

“I was really excited about that article, because I thought, there’s got to be a bigger story here if there were enough Jews for services,” he said.

The story, it turned out, is that Jewish merchants and miners came to the area to make their fortune along with hundreds of thousands of other westward-moving Americans. The Friedmans, Leopolds, and Werthheimers, among other families, became cornerstones of the community, serving as business and municipal leaders. Goldstein describes the area at this time as more tolerant than one might expect.

“In Germany, [Jewish] families’ economic and social opportunities were limited by their religion,” he said. “But they experienced a profound change in status when they emigrated to the United States, and particularly when they showed up in Idaho, a rural frontier where, as long as you were white, identity hardly mattered and men were judged not by their background by by their ability to make money.”

The area’s Jewish community has thinned in accordance with the population at large and did not reach healthy levels again until the Sun Valley Resort was established and winter sports enthusiasts moved to Blaine County from metropolitan centers across the country. That culminated in 1983 when the Wood River Jewish Community was formalized, creating the first official Jewish organization in the Valley.

While writing this talk,

Goldstein worked a full-time job at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in New York City. However, researching the history of Jews in the area became the main focus of his free time. He used skills honed as a student at Georgetown University, where he published a research paper on the history of Jews at the famously Catholic institution.

The generally unexplored subject matter made research difficult at some points.

“One of the benefits of few people looking at this story is there is a lot of amazing history that’s sort of just waiting to be discovered. I visited archives in person around the state. I went to the Idaho State Archives in Boise and the Blaine County Historical Museum in Hailey and looked for Jewish history there, and then also went to Jewish archives and looked for Idaho history,” he said.

Goldstein had to employ some clever methods to find what he was looking for. He said that the research process isn’t linear— instead, there are dry spells, and periods where he would strike gold and find a heap of useful information.

One particularly notable nugget he found is a personal ad published in “Israelite” in 1873, which reads:

“A young co-religionist, doing a large business in the wilds of Idaho, would like to form the acquaintance of some young lady, and therefore politely requests correspondence.”

This excerpt elicited a laugh from the crowd.

Another piece of research that was of particular interest to the audience was the story of Moses Alexander, the first practicing

Jewish man to become governor of any U.S. state when he was elected governor of Idaho in 1914.

However, Goldstein was careful not to take the complex history of a community and oversimplify it.

“One of the challenging things about history is that it’s often been told as a heroic tale of individual men—and it’s always men,” he said. “Often, the story of a community is [distilled down to] the story of the four men who led it. There’s a virtue to that approach, and individual stories are interesting, but it really obscures the fact that communities have so many people who weren’t mentioned or weren’t a part of the way the history was written.”

Goldstein said he wanted to avoid this in his retelling, instead emphasizing shared community stories.

The results have been rewarding, he said.

“I have had so many people come up to me and say, ‘Wow, I didn’t know this story, and this made me really proud to be a Jew in Idaho,’” he said.

The value in this research goes beyond fun facts, though, and not just for the Jewish members of the community.

“I hope that this instills curiosity in non-Jews and that it sparks conversations among people of all backgrounds about Idaho’s history. There might be an impression that Jews are outsiders, but Jews have been a part of the fabric of this place for a long time,” he said. “I hope that the Jewish story can pique interest in the other diverse histories of the region, which really deserved to be

Felony DUI results in jail time, 10 years’ probation for Hailey man

A Hailey man was sentenced on Aug. 15 to six months in jail and 10 years on probation for his second felony conviction of driving under the influence in the past five years.

Ryan D. Bronson, 43, was arrested near the Main and Pine intersection in Bellevue around 7 p.m. on Feb. 19, 2022, after a fellow motorist driving in front of him called in that Bronson had “almost hit three cars,” according to a police report filed by Bellevue Deputy Marshal Thomas Linton.

Linton pursued Bronson’s Ford truck and found the man weaving on Main Street, crossing the fog line and “following less than a car length behind the vehicle in front of him,” Linton wrote.

When the officer made contact with Bronson, he noticed that Bronson had “trouble retrieving his driver’s license,” showed poor motor skills and displayed a “dazed/confused look on his face.”

Bronson declined a breathalyzer test and field-sobriety tests, Linton stated, but a blood draw taken at St. Luke’s Wood River later in the evening revealed that he had been driving with an alcohol-concentration level above the .08 limit.

Bronson told police that he decided to drive while intoxicated because he had been locked


felony DUI

out of his trailer in Twin Falls, where he planned to “sleep it [the alcohol] off,” according to Linton’s report.

On Aug. 15, Fifth District Judge Ned Williamson sentenced Bronson to a total not-toexceed sentence of 10 years, with five years in prison followed by a five-year indeterminate period in custody.

Williamson suspended that sentence, however, and instead placed Bronson on 10 years of supervised probation. The judge also ordered Bronson spend 176 days in the county jail and attend intensive outpatient treatment for substance abuse after his release.

Bronson’s sentence carries an additional $5,000 fine, with $3,000 suspended; a one-year driver’s license suspension; and $390 in court and law-enforcement fees. After his license suspension expires, Bronson must also install a breathalyzer interlock ignition device in his vehicle and spend the next four years with restricted driving privileges, Williamson ruled.

As a term and condition of his probation, he must not purchase alcohol or enter bars.

Bronson has five previous DUI convictions, including a felony conviction in Blaine County from January 2017.

During sentencing, Bronson told the court about his struggles with work and family but stressed his commitment to keeping the roads safe.

Express Express AND GUIDE ® Blaine County economy bouncing back from COVID downturn Amid changes, many sectors doing well, analyst says, but ‘pockets of weakness’ persist T he COVID-19 pandemic hit Blaine County hard soon after it struck in the winter of 2020. Early on, the county was a coronavirus hotspot, thrown into the national spotlight as the remote place in Idaho where the disease was afflicting numerous residents and visitors alike. Before long, people were told to wear protective masks and stay away from others. Sun Valley Resort closed the ski season early, like many U.S. mountain resorts. Restaurants and other businesses had to temporarily cease—or significantly scale back—their operations. Travel ground to a halt and hotels were empty. In the spring of 2020, commerce in most major economic sectors was slowed to a trickle, and only picked up marginally in the early summer. “Clearly, we got whacked in the beginning,” said Harry Griffith, executive director of the Sun Valley Economic Development nonprofit organization. Now, some 18 months later, the Blaine County economy has substantially recovered, but still shows some “pockets of weakness,” Griffith said. “I think we’ve done well,” he said. “I think the positives kind of outweigh the negatives.” In addition, Griffith noted, the county’s economy has undergone some “structural changes,” some of which have benefited businesses and residents. The degree of the pandemic downturn is evident in Griffith’s analysis of local-option-tax collections in Hailey, Ketchum and Sun Valley (See Appendix, Page 6, Figure 3). The three resort cities collect the taxes on a range of goods and services as a state-sanctioned means to offset the economic impacts of hosting a large number of visitors. LOT collections are commonly used as an indicator of economic activity. In February 2020, the LOT collections in the three cities had exceeded those in February 50 CENTS 2021 IDAHO MOUNTAIN Express Express ® ECONOMIC ALMANAC BLAINE COUNTY BY THE NUMBERS WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2021 Express photo by Roland Lane See RECOVERY Page 9 Moving into Blaine County The COVID-19 pandemic hit Blaine County early and hard, shutting down the local economy while the virus worked its way through the community. As the dust settled, it quickly became apparent that the Wood River Valley was a desirable place to call home. This sent home prices sky high and led to what some have termed a “generational shift” in local demographics. Anecdotal stories abound about people having to leave the valley due to high rents, and there is data to support this. Yet many more have flocked to the valley, sometimes bringing their careers with them. Jill Donnelly, the owner of Baby & Company clothing store in Seattle, moved with her husband to the valley a year ago. She came here to ski in high school, but until recently was anchored in Seattle, where her store had thrived near Pike Place since 1976. Donnelly, 63, said upheaval in the city during street protests last year drew police from the downtown area, leaving shops vulnerable to looters. “These were thieves, not protestors,” Donnelly said. “They smashed our windows and looted the store. We were left stranded without protection.” Donnelly sold her home in Seattle and found a new shop location in the Galleria Building in Ketchum. She has hired two people to work there and expects her online sales to make ends meet. Although she and her husband have experienced some “pushback” from locals at fishing spots, they are determined to buy a home and settle in. “We want to blend in to what makes this place special,” Donnelly said. “I can feel the growing pains in Ketchum. We went through this in Seattle. But sometimes fresh voices can bring an outside perspective and add to the riches of a place.” Data gathered by Sun Valley Economic Development shows that a rapid influx of new residents, primarily from the West Coast, has taken place from March 2020 to March 2021. During that year, the Blaine County Department of Motor Vehicles reported 923 new driving license registrations. The majority of new residents came from California (326) and Washington (136), with 61 from Oregon (See Appendix, Page 6, Figure 5) Of these new Blaine County drivers, 637, or 69%, were 61 or older (See chart on Page 8).

Hailey’s ‘Anti-Chinese Committee’ issues an ultimatum

$450 per year from the Idaho & Oregon Land Improvement Company. They dug an irrigation ditch 1.5 miles long, planting tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage and an assortment of fruits.

Other Chinese immigrants became “truck gardeners,” growing vegetables on small patches of land near Lions Park and peddling the produce in wagons from house to house.

In 1885, Picotte published an interview with resident Charley Sing in which he asked the man why so many had departed China for the Wood River Valley. Picotte quoted Sing’s reply in pidgin English: “Too many poor people [in China]. Same as America, see? New York poor place. Can’t make money fast … In Hailey, in Idaho, make money easy; in China, in New York, belly hard.”

Violence was a part of daily life

The Chinese in Hailey were frequently threatened, robbed, and pelted with eggs, rocks and other objects, as reflected in hundreds of daily articles published by the Wood River Times.

In September 1882—just months after President Chester A. Arthur halted all Chinese immigration into the U.S. via the Chinese Exclusion Act—a hotel patron threatened a Chinese domestic servant with a pistol.

“Late yesterday afternoon, considerable excitement was created at the Merchants’ Hotel by a man deliberately holding a revolver pointed at Sam Lee, the Chinese male chambermaid … and snapping the hammer several times,” Picotte reported. “As it happened there was no load in the pistol and the Chinaman still lives.”

The perpetrator, a white man, “only did it in sport” and “paid $10 for his fun” at the Old Blaine County Courthouse, the paper stated.

“He is in doubt even yet as to there being any moral crime in or law against killing Chinamen,” the article continued.

Discrimination was embedded not only in newspaper propaganda, but daily life. Hailey residents held “snowballing parties” on Main Street after snowstorms, for example—a pastime that involved hitting as many Chinese men with snowballs as possible.

“This was a bad day for Chinamen, and any one of them unlucky enough to come across one of the snowballing parties on Main Street, has cause to remember the occasion,” Picotte reported after one snowstorm in February 1884. “This is probably reprehensible; but, then, the snow balled so easily that the temptation to throw was irresistible.”

In Hailey’s and Ketchum’s newspapers, reporters accused Chinese immigrants of eating dogs and rats, mocked them for their hairstyles and “baggy” clothing and criticized them for a perceived refusal to adopt American customs.

Picotte and Ketchum Keystone editor H.E. Cook, for example, frequently mocked their traditional Manchu hairstyles of shaved foreheads and braided ponytails, calling the men “pig-tailed heathen.”

(Picotte made an exception for a merchant named Willie Lee Chong, who spoke English fluently, wore “American clothes, has cut off his [ponytail] and belongs to a church.”)

In April 1883, Picotte reported with amusement that passersby had tried to tie a clothesline around a Chinese man during a windstorm.

“As he stood there with his long tail flying in the wind … They never had a better chance to fly a Chinese kite,” the editor wrote, “but the fellow slipped the cord off and scooted.”

While Chinese lives and property were frequently threatened, the offenders were almost never prosecuted. In May 1883, for example, two cabins in Hailey’s Chinatown were intentionally set on fire with coal oil, but no investigation was carried out.

The Chinese were also frequently jailed for a slew of offenses, from smoking

opium to using illegal nets to catch fish on Silver Creek. Thirteen men were thrown in the county jail in April 1885 for smoking opium, fined $100 each and put to work stacking stones outside of the jail under the command of the deputy sheriff, according to the Wood River Times. A Chinese restaurant cook, “Asa,” was jailed for pulling out kitchen knives after a white waiter, James Gordon, punched him.

“The Chinaman, two immense carving knives in his hands, threatened to then and there carve Mr. Gordon into Giblets. Mr. Gordon protested at such a proposition, and had the Chinaman arrested on a charge of threatened assault with intent to kill,” Picotte stated.

According to historian Mae Ngai, prosecutors in mining towns rarely paid attention to Chinese witness accounts “from result of both a lack of concern and their own prejudices—most notably the claim that they could not distinguish one Chinese person from another.”

“Even sincere efforts on the part of prosecutors and judges were hampered by the problem of translation,” Ngai wrote in her 2021 book “The Chinese Question: The Gold Rushes and Global Rushes.”

Discrimination had deep roots

Anti-Chinese sentiment in the West had taken decades to crystalize into the antiChinese leagues that sprouted up across the West in the 1880s, according to Ngai.

White American and European miners had “used long ropes to sweep down and drag off the tents” of Chinese gold miners at camps in Weaverville, California, as early as 1852, Ngai noted in her book.

Tong Achick—one of the first settlers to come to San Francisco from Hong Kong— and businessman Chun Aching captured the morale at the Weaverville camps in a letter to California Gov. John Bigler in 1852:

“We are informed that grown men may sometimes be seen, sitting down alone in the wildest places, weeping like children,” they wrote.

Two years after they penned that letter, in 1854, a $4-per-month foreign miners’ tax was imposed on Chinese miners only—Irish, English and Scandinavian were immune—making it hard to afford hand tools and food.

As California’s gold reserves depleted in the 1860s and anti-Chinese sentiment grew—stoked by politicians and white labor unions—as many as 5,000 discouraged Chinese laborers left the goldfields and returned to China.

Others turned to farming, found work in factories in San Francisco or moved to Oregon, Idaho and Nevada to take ostensibly better-paying mining jobs or lay track for the Transcontinental Railroad.

Conditions in the gold fields and rail yards often weren’t much better, Ngai wrote.

“Violence and threats of violence were pervasive on the diggings, part of a

hypercompetitive environment in which miners of all ethnic backgrounds quarreled and fought over claims,” Ngai wrote.

In San Francisco, too, race relations were coming to a boil. Four-hundred Irish cigar factory workers threw bricks at their Chinese coworkers and burned down scores of Chinese shanties in San Francisco in 1867. The following year, the California Legislature drafted a resolution asserting that Chinese laborers were “pagans” who shouldn’t become citizens: “Our entire Chinese population is composed of slaves and their masters, or agents of their masters,” the Legislature stated.

By the mid-1870s, anti-Chinese clubs were ubiquitous across California. They proclaimed the same rallying cry: ‘The Chinese Must Go!”

Hailey’s adoption of the “Chinese Must Go” slogan around 1885 wasn’t an isolated event, according to historian Beth Lew-Williams.

Four-hundred thirty-nine towns across the U.S., in fact, attempted to oust Chinese immigrants between 1885 and 1887 with “harassment, bombing, arson, assault, roundups, murder and lynching,” LewWilliams wrote in her book “Chinese Must Go: The Chinese Must Go: Violence, Exclusion, and the Making of the Alien in America.”

Making matters worse, the district judge of Alturas County, Geo Parsons, was a member of Hailey’s “Anti-Chinese League” headed up by prominent businessman J. C. Fox.

The league, having been underground for years, held its first public meeting in February 1886 at the Hailey Theater to brainstorm how to expel Hailey’s Chinese citizens. Members complained about Chinese employees taking off work for Chinese New Year and griped about the money they sent abroad.

They came up with three options for the Chinese residents—move further east, go home, or starve—and set a three-month deadline of May 1, 1886.

“We find that a quarter of a million dollars has been taken from the Wood River country,” Picotte wrote. “Hailey cannot afford it; the businessmen cannot stand it.”

A ‘desired end’

In August 1884, citizens of Shoshone resolved to rid the town of all Chinese residents and replace all servants, cooks and laundrymen with poor white women from Europe or Mormon towns in Utah.

“The [laundrymen] were also advised to go take a walk, which they all did immediately,” the Wood River Times reported.

Farmers Ah Sem and Ah King, who tended a garden between Bellevue and Shoshone, were “given time to sell their vegetables and money.” The last Chinese resident “shouldered his rice sack” in November 1885, the Times reported.

On Feb. 1, 1886, Hailey’s Anti-Chinese Committee—following Shoshone’s lead,

under the direction of J.C. Fox—gave Chinese residents 90 days to board up their businesses and leave.

Within a day of the announcement of the town’s “intent to dispose of their services,” Picotte wrote that Chinese laundrymen and merchants saw a dramatic decline in patronage.

One laundryman called newspaper to report that he had $1,400 in unpaid washing bills, the paper reported. Hop Chung— who owned a laundry near present-day Broadford Road—also reported a “large falling-off of customers,” Picotte wrote.

“If the number of those who refuse to pay their wash bills increases in the same ratio, in the next few months, as it has in the past, the anti-Chinese problem will be solved, as far as Hailey is concerned, as the Chinese will be starved out,” Picotte wrote.

Several Chinese residents placed an advertisement in the newspaper saying they would not leave, and a few Chinese gardeners told the newspaper that they would remain, living off their own produce.

“A few weeks ago they lived high-toned, and had three to six assistants and every washhouse. Now, there was not over one [employee], on an average, besides the bosses. Outside of the laundries there were not over six Chinese earning a livelihood,” the newspaper stated in February.

That month, a “person or persons” placed a can of Hercules powder—an explosive containing nitroglycerin— within a few feet of Chung’s laundry and detonated the can, destroying much of the building, the paper reported.

“There was another [anti-Chinese] meeting last night, but very few persons attended, as they seemed to be afraid of being suspected of causing the explosion,” Picotte wrote.

Chung began to send out postcards begging customers to pay their bills.

“They are only written in English on a well-laundered cuff and read: ‘Please call and pay your wash bill. Your Chinese laundryman,” the paper reported.

On Feb. 13, in a Wood River Times article headlined “Former Haunts Abandoned and Quiet as Graveyards,” Picotte wrote that sheriffs had “found Chinatown quieter than they ever saw it before.” Fifty Chinese residents had left already.

According to the newspaper, officers found Chung smoking opium along with another Chinese man and told the pair “that they would probably be wanted.” The men agreed to report to the sheriff’s office the next morning but were told to go home by a district attorney.

By June 1886, only three laundries were left, including Chung’s and Sam Lee’s on Bullion Street. Both Lee’s and Chung’s laundries were torn to the ground in separate explosions that month.

To Picotte and other members of the anti-Chinese league, this was the “desired end.”

“Sam huddled himself in a corner and began to call on Confucius,” the Wood River Times reported. “When daylight broke Sam examined the premises having first satisfied himself that he—Sam—was not dead … Sam has no idea who did it, but there is one Chinaman in Hailey who will not return to Bullion.”

Hop Chung narrowly escaped the explosion with two others, Picotte reported.

“The three China men were in the house when the fuse was lighted. The time necessary for the fuse to burn saved the three men’s lives, for they smelt the burning powder and escaped—two unhurt and one wounded … the explosion tore the house badly and scattered portions of its timber all around. It was by a flying piece of timber that the Chinaman was wounded.”

By April 1891, Chinatown’s population numbered around a dozen, and just two Chinese-owned washhouses remained.

By all accounts, Chung stayed in Hailey until at least May 1893, when his wife, Sue Yee “Mary,” died of a hemorrhage at her residence on River Street.

Nancy Arlette Bucknall

Nancy Arlette Bucknall passed away peacefully with family by her side on Aug. 24, 2022. She was 89 years old.

Arlette moved to the Hailey in 2014 to be closer to her youngest son and his family and had often been a summer visitor to the Wood River Valley for the 20 years prior. She loved Idaho and never missed an opportunity to go for a hike or a drive to look for wildflowers. Arlette was known by her friends and family as being gentle and kind, interested and interesting, thoughtful and refreshingly down to earth. She will be missed by all who knew her.

Born in London, England, on Feb. 19, 1933, to Algernon Seymour Hoare and Wynefred Nancy Shorrock, Arlette was the youngest of four children. When WWII broke out in 1939 and the bombing of London started, the family moved to Winchcombe, a small town near Cheltenham in the Cotswolds. As was common at that time, Arlette went to a boarding school starting at a young age. She was always very homesick at school but made wonderful friendships that lasted a lifetime.

Arlette was adventurous and told many stories of trips with friends and family to Switzerland, Italy and France in her early 20s. In 1957, she and her best friend set off for North America and worked in Toronto for several months and then traveled west across Canada and then back east across the U.S. by bus from California to New York City. It was there that she met and fell in love with Robert Henry Bucknall. After a two-year, long-distance courtship, they married in London in 1961. The couple lived in New York for the first few months, then settled in Denver, Colorado, where their first two children, Victoria and Christopher, were born. Missing the Northeast and wanting to be closer to England, they moved to Shaftsbury, Vermont, in 1967. Their third child, Mark, was born in 1968.

After divorcing in 1982, Arlette moved to the Mettowee Valley of Pawlet, Vermont, outside Dorset. Arlette was happy to spend countless hours tending to her flower and vegetable gardens and, with the help of her children, her son-in-law and many others, she created over the years a wonderful home that she cherished. Over a 25-year period, Arlette worked the front desk of the Dorset Inn and then the Wilburton Inn, which she so enjoyed. She was so engaging with all the guests with her genuine friendliness and helpfulness and, of course, with her proper English accent that she never lost even after 60-plus years of living in the states.

Arlette’s greatest loves were her children and her grandchildren. She would do anything for them. She was always there to help watch, take care of, transport, feed, and just be there for any grandchild at a moment’s notice. And it was so easy and natural for her. Even with distances separating her from some of her children, she always managed to be there for them and her grandchildren. Moving to Idaho allowed her the opportunity to be a part of the lives of her two youngest grandchildren after being such a huge part of the lives of her four


other grandchildren when they were young and growing up.

Arlette’s love of gardening led her to a role as a board member of the Mettowee Valley Land Trust where thousands of acres of development rights of farms in the valley were purchased, thereby allowing the farms to remain in the families and to be conserved as open space. She was also very active in the Bennington chapter of the Garden Club of America and was instrumental in creating and maintaining a project at the Veterans Home in Bennington where gardens were created for the enjoyment of the residents and where they could also participate in maintaining those gardens.

Arlette is survived by her three children, Victoria Silsby of Manchester, Vermont, Chris Bucknall (Janet Bucknall) of Davidsonville, Maryland, and Mark Bucknall (Heather McGregor) of Hailey, Idaho; and six grandchildren, Elizabeth Silsby of Portland, Maine, Sam Silsby of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, Emily Bucknall of London, England, Travis Bucknall of New York, New York and Cassidy and Mason Bucknall of Hailey, Idaho.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Doctors Without Borders or the The Nature Conservancy, two of Arlette’s favorite charities. There will be a small gathering in Vermont at a date to be determined. A special thanks to all of Arlette’s caregivers at her house, Silvercreek Living and The Cove over the last couple of years.

Roger Crist

Roger Edwin Crist passed away in his home in Ketchum, Idaho, the evening of Sept. 3 surrounded by family and friends, after a well-fought battle with Parkinson’s disease. He is survived by his wife Susan, his three children, Reggie (Laura), Danielle (Kenton) and Zach (Emilie); stepson, Tyler (Isa and August); along with 10 tightly knit Ketchumborn grandchildren, Jett, Zephyr, Ruby, Scarlett, Jayden, Emmett, Stevie, Ridge, Mitchell and Wilder, who all live along the river out Board Ranch. He is also survived by his first wife, Diane Crist, and many devoted friends.

Roger was born in 1939 in Palo Alto, California, to Eugenia and Frank Crist alongside his two siblings Jeanese and ‘Skip.’ He attended Stanford University where he played football before continuing on to Stanford Law School. After college, he joined the Marine Corps and later served in the Vietnam War, stationed in Okinawa, Japan. When he returned, he worked as an attorney for many years in Palo Alto until his passion for the outdoors inspired a move to Ketchum, Idaho, in 1979.

It was here in the mountains where he found home. He was a beautiful skier who became a fixture on Bald Mountain each winter. He diced up the bowls, loved the bumps and cared not for groomers. He always finished a good day with a nonstop down Exhibition with his pals. Those of us who bombed around the mountain with him fed on his enthusiasm and did our best to keep up. He had a penchant for a great adventure, and those of us close to him have a lifetime of stories to tell about kayaking remote rivers in Nepal, skiing in Greenland, surfing in Costa Rica, Mexico and California, hunting in Idaho and many other grand adventures near and far.

Aside from being a passionate outdoorsman, Roger was all about community. He served on the board of trustees for SVSEF, Boulder Mountain Clayworks and Community School to name a few that best describe his interests. As a friend, he helped so many people in town with his generosity, offering sage advice, a place to stay, sometimes money and always kindness that was often communicated by a subtle wink of the eye. Like it or not, he was never in a hurry, but he always made time for people with an honest look in the eyes.

Most of all, Poppa Rog was a family man. He loved nothing more than his kids and grandchildren, each of whom he shared a deeply meaningful relationship with. He was always full of encouragement, without judgment, as he softly inspired all of them to follow their dreams. He enjoyed nothing more than hosting a fine gathering of friends and family for a delicious home-cooked meal. An artist at heart, his recipes were usually a spontaneous combination of available ingredients along with whatever he picked up on his daily trip down the aisles of Atkinsons’ Market. His hand thrown pottery can be found in all of our kitchens, and the

love he put into his creations has filled our hearts. A collector of rocks and fossils, he left behind a virtual treasure trove of mementos.

While his ways were almost always unconventional, he carved his own path towards happiness, making a positive impact on so many others. His legacy lives in those special places he helped develop, especially the family house at Stinson Beach and his most recent endeavor at Smiley Creek Lodge. We will always remember the joy and laughter of Poppa Rog, which lives on inside us all. There are few things more inspiring than a life so well lived.

Rest in peace. We love you always.

Celebration of life will be held Oct. 1 at Smiley Creek Lodge, 1 p.m.

The family wanted to express a deep heartfelt thank you for all of the help and love they received from Hospice of the Wood River Valley.

John ‘Jack’ ‘Hook Shot’ Heneghan

John “Jack” Joseph “Hook Shot” Heneghan, age 89, passed away peacefully on Aug. 30, at his beloved Little Sebago Lake surrounded by family.

Jack was born in Somerville, Massachusetts, to Simon and Delia Heneghan, proud Irish immigrants. Jack was preceded in death by his five siblings: Richard, Thomas, Mary, Theresa, Paul, and his mother-in-law, Dorie Ellis.

Jack was educated at Somerville High School and Tufts University (1955) where he excelled as a basketball player. He held the Tufts University alltime scoring record for 27 years (which was prior to the addition of the 3-point shot). After graduation, he continued his basketball career in the United States Marine Corps at Quantico, Virginia. Jack began his working career with the First Investors Corporation in the mutual funds business and later became a McDonalds owner of eight franchises in and around the Boston area. He was an energetic supporter of Ronald McDonald Children’s Charity, and every June for 15 consecutive years ran 200 miles to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy. His dedication and diligence in collecting every pledge made him their largest individual fund raiser during those years.

Jack met his wife of 66 years, Faith Ellis, (the coach’s daughter) at Tufts. They married shortly after graduation and spent much of their married life in Burlington and Duxbury, Massachusetts. Later, they resided in Naples, Florida, and spent summers at their special spot on Little Sebago Lake in Raymond, Maine, where they enjoyed basketball, tennis, water skiing, and the “Magic Circle” with lifelong friends and family each evening.

He is also survived by his children and their spouses: Brian (Miriam), Terrance, Kevin (Rushna), Karen Getchell (David), and Sheila Naghsh (Anthony); and 13 grandchildren whom he adored: Shannon, John, Davey, Ellis, Laura, Riley, Cody, Taylor, Keegan, Sierra, Cormac, Tiernan, and Finn. He was also survived by his sister-in-law, Susan Costas, her husband, Steve, and several nieces and nephews. Family was Jack’s top priority.

There will be no formal arrangements at this time. In lieu of flowers, Jack asked for a donation to one of his favorite charities: Ronald McDonald House Charities (helping families of critically ill children) 26345 Network Place, Chicago, IL 60673.

Night construction work to occur at Friedman this week, next week

Runway grooving may produce noise

Friedman Memorial Airport will put the final touches on its $8.6 million airfield rehabilitation project this week and next week between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m., closing the runway to air traffic overnight.

Night construction work began the evening of Sept. 11 and will continue through Monday, Sept. 19, according to Airport Director Chris Pomeroy.

The final phase of the project will involve runway grooving to increase surface friction, installing a new runway weather sensor system and applying final pavement markings. Intermittent daytime closures will be implemented at the end of next week to complete final markings, Pomeroy said.

“No air carrier schedules will be impacted,” he said.

The Hailey City Council previously approved a waiver on Aug. 8 to allow overnight construction noise on the tarmac. Some vibration and noise can be expected from the grooving machines, which emit backup alarms, according to the airport.

Drivers-by can expect to see around 10 grooving machines and water trucks with flashing lights, as well as a white “X” closing the runway.

Friedman’s major runway

rehabilitation project closed the airport for one month in April and May as crews worked to repair the runway, taxiway and two apron areas.

Here is a selection of winners from the 2022

According to the airport, the grooving work is being conducted now because the asphalt is required to cure for at least 30 days prior to grooving to prevent

surface damage.

“The only alternative to grooving at night is another multi‐day full airport closure during normal city work hours. The operational

and financial impact of a multi‐day airport closure is significant to both the airport and the community,” the city of Hailey stated.

County records 32nd COVID death

omicron subvariants. The highly contagious BA.5 omicron subvariant is now the dominant strain of COVID-19, making up about 90% of cases nationally, the district stated.

The new boosters are recommended for people 12 and older who have received their primary COVID-19 vaccine series and have not received a COVID19 vaccine dose in the last two months. People 12 and older are eligible to receive the updated Pfizer COVID-19 booster, and people 18 and older are eligible to receive the updated Moderna COVID-19 booster.

Children ages 5-11 are eligible for the original COVID-19 booster, which provides protection against the original strain of COVID-19. This age group will likely be eligible for updated boosters in the coming months, the Health District stated.

COVID-19 vaccines remain available to all Idahoans at no cost, regardless of immigration or health insurance status. Appointments at Health District clinics for the updated Pfizer booster dose can be made by calling Immunization Services at

208-727-5966. For COVID-19 vaccine availability at other providers, people are advised to contact their primary health care provider.

The Health District is still operating hotlines to help answer questions about COVID19. Call 208-737-5965 for questions in Spanish and 208-737-1138 for questions in English. The hotline is open on business days from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The district last week also reported the 32nd COVID-related death in Blaine County since the start of the pandemic in 2020, a woman in her 80s. The woman was hospitalized, had underlying health conditions and was vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19, the district stated.

The district reported Monday that Blaine County had 21 new COVID-19 cases recorded in the week of Sept. 3-9. Data from the state Department of Health and Welfare indicates that case numbers in Blaine County are trending downward. On Friday, the daily seven-day moving average of cases per hypothetical 100,000 population was 11.8, down from a summer-season peak of 52.7 on July 12.

Evacuation orders remain around Ross Fork Fire

“As long as it’s away from people ... once it gets back into the wilderness we’ll let it do its thing,” he said.

Though the Red Flag conditions that stoked the fire have subsided, the Forest Service and Idaho Department of Lands implemented Stage 1 fire restrictions on Sunday in what’s known as the Sawtooth North Zone, from U.S. Highway 20 in the south to the northern edge of the Sawtooth National Forest. The city of Ketchum followed suit with its own restrictions Tuesday morning. Open campfires and smoking outside of an enclosed structure or protected area are banned during Stage 1 restrictions.

Meanwhile, a mandatory evacuation order is in place for all homes and campgrounds in the Pettit Lake Road and Cabin Creek Road areas, Sawtooth City, Smiley Creek, Alturas Lake and Beaver Creek. A vast zone of the Sawtooth National Forest is also closed to public access.

With lines holding, some firefighters are turning their attention to clearing roadways and other hazards for when residents and property owners return, Leising said.

“Everybody is really aware that the public wants to get back to their homes,” he said. “We’re doing everything we can to make that happen as soon as possible. Right now, though, we’re not there.”

Temporary flight restrictions are in place over the fire and have so far been violated twice by drones: first Thursday and again on Sunday, according to the federal fire tracking site InciWeb. The

incursions stopped all firefighting flights over the Ross Fork Fire “to avoid a potential midair collision,” according to the Forest Service.

“If you see a drone flying in the area of the Ross Fork Fire, please report it immediately to the Blaine County Sherriff Department and the FAA District Office in Boise at 208-387-4000 with as much information as possible,” the Forest Service said.

South of Galena Pass, crews have taken preliminary actions to protect the historic Galena Lodge in the northern Wood River Valley, fire officials said Saturday. The Galena Lodge area is under a “set” evacuation status, meaning people should be prepared to leave on short notice.

State Highway 75 in northern Blaine County has been open for four days straight as of midday Monday. However, the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office has warned that the highway is subject to closure at any time, and travelers are advised to check the Idaho Transportation Department website for updates.

The Ross Fork Fire was started by a lightning strike on Aug. 14 in a remote section of forest west of Smiley Creek and burned slowly for weeks. A “high wind event” caused the blaze to erupt over Labor Day weekend.

With more favorable conditions forecast, Leising hopes for good news to continue into the weekend.

“Every day we get precipitation, every day we get minimal wind, there’s more cause to be optimistic.”

Emily Jones contributed reporting.

Map by Evelyn Phillips The Ross Fork Fire approached 38,000 acres on Sept. 13.

The Hailey Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday approved a 37-space parking lot at 306 and 308 S. River St. for FAPO Holdings Idaho, LLC.

The approval took place following a general discussion about work elsewhere on River Street that city officials agree is not in compliance with a “River Street concept” formulated after years of consultation, public spending and public input.

The parking lot will service an existing multi-use commercial development directly north at the corner of River and Pine Streets also owned by FAPO. It will be built on land that was vacated by the removal of a historic Forest Service Building two years ago.

As part of the parking lot development, FAPO will also install a bike path adjacent to a diagonal parking area, as well as a sidewalk, curb and gutter. The parking area will be accessed through the alley.

The commission approved the plan while leaving some flexibility for local circumstances. The ultimate goal is to establish standards for separate pedestrian and bike paths, as well as a planting strip on both sides of the street, according to designs approved by the Hailey City Council in 2019.

“Now that we have this set design, is it going to work everywhere?” said P&Z Commissioner Owen Scanlon. “What works on one piece of property may not work an another. We only have little sections here and there being built.”

Some public comment revolved around challenges faces by people parking near Jersey Girl restaurant on the other side of Main Street, where a bike path

Street concept”

has come into conflict with adjacent parking. A similar design is planned for FAPO.

P&Z Chair Janet Fugate wanted to make sure the new street-side improvements built by FAPO will hold up alongside other contiguous street improvements expected in the future.

“We don’t want a curb that we have to remove five years down the road,” Fugate said.

In 2019, the Hailey City Council approved conceptual designs for a $4 million, four-block renovation of River Street between Walnut and Galena streets, and a new sidewalk from River Street to Hop Porter Park. The River Street concept calls for new lighting and bike paths and sidewalks on both sides of the street, separated by a planting strip with new trees every 40 feet.

Work currently underway between Galena and Carbonate Streets is not in compliance with the design concept. The work includes one 12-foot-wide asphalt bike path on both sides of the street. The block that contains Black Owl Café is a temporary “sacrificial” solution, said Community Development Director Robyn Davis.

“It is being installed to function as an interim solution for bike and pedestrian activity along the River Street Corridor until the River Street Concept can be constructed as designed,” Davis said.

P&Z Commissioner Dan Smith said it will take some time for the concept to come to fruition because the city doesn’t the funding to complete it in one sweep.

“It will be an improvement over what we had, but final completion of the project is ways out,” said Smith, who mentioned that some asphalt could be removed in the future.

“And that asphalt can be recycled,” Smith said.

Load management benefits SVCS

Crist, Walther-Porino goals keep girls’ soccer squad undefeated

Load management turned into a victory. With several starters earning a game off, goals by junior Ruby Crist and senior Reece Walther-Porino—one in each half—paced the San Valley Community School girls’ soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Gooding on Sept. 12 at the Dumke Family Sagewillow Campus.

“It adds pressure knowing a few of our best players aren’t there,” said Crist, who also had an assist, as did sophomore Attie Murray. “I think our team in general has really good chemistry and we get along really well, which I think is important to having a good mentality and being able to play well with each other.”

A handful of players were not in uniform as the Cutthroats raised their record to 7-0 overall and 6-0 in High Desert Conference play.

“We’re also trying to give these younger players an opportunity, those players who aren’t seeing a lot of game time to make sure they get better,” head coach Kelly Feldman said. “They don’t get better if we don’t play them. They get opportunities, and they learn and that’s the whole point. We need to bring those players along because they’re the future. If they never play, they never get better.”

The Cutthroats host Buhl today (6:15 p.m.), visit Kimberly on Sept. 16 (4:30 p.m.) and head to Phil Homer Field on Sept. 17 to take on Wood River (1 p.m.)

“We were lacking a little in intensity early, but we picked it up,” Feldman said. “It’s good to get them out there and see what they can do. We were talking a whole lot more on the sidelines than we usually do, trying to dial things in and getting everybody where they need to be.

“We had a bunch of young players out there who don’t have a lot of experience. It’s a great opportunity and great we can take advantage of some of these varsity games to let these guys play to start getting that education and that experience for the future.”

Crist’s goal came 25 minutes into the first half and Walther-Porino’s seven minutes into the second half. Walther-Porino was named Player of the Game.

“People on this team play soccer at a lot

a shot during the second half of a 2-0 victory over Gooding on Sept. 12 at the Dumke Family Sagewillow Campus. Crist and senior Reece Walther-Porino scored the goals as the Cutthroats remain undefeated.

of different levels, but we all get along and we’re all there to encourage each other,” Crist said. “It pays off for us really well in the end.

“Teammates can encourage each other by patting each other on the back and saying it’s OK. But, also, as a player, if you make a mistake, I think all of us take constructive criticism pretty well. I think everyone is aware that no one’s getting mad at each other, blaming them for mistakes. Nobody takes it to heart.”

Murray (three saves) and sophomore Taylor Hovey (four) shared the shutout in goals.

“We’re all here to help each other,” Crist said.

The Cutthroats defeated Wendell, 3-0, on Sept. 10. An own goal accompanied goals by senior Maya Lightner and junior Mia Hansmeyer. Senior Anabel Viesturs had an assist. Murray was named Player of the Game after her first start in goal, earning a shutout.

As we approach the autumnal equinox, it seems fitting that cool weather has finally arrived in the Wood River Valley. We even have some potential rain in the forecast over the coming week. With this change in the weather, we should see patches of brilliant gold and crimson along the hills and rivers. While these cooler air temperatures have triggered the leaves to turn, it will also signal the bugs of fall (baetis, mahoganies, and hecubas) to hatch. Be sure to get out over the next several weeks, as they can be some of the best of the season.

SILVER CREEK: The Creek is slowly transitioning into a fall fishery, which means the tricos are mostly done. On the unseasonably warm days, you may still find a few tricos mixed with baetis. The baetis may be strong enough to get fish feeding intermittently on the surface and provide targets for the angler. On cloudy days, expect baetis in size 22 and 24 to be the dominant hatch. These hatches are generally strong enough in short bursts to get most all the fish involved on the surface. Of course, callibaetis (size 16 and 18) are still going to be a factor throughout the day in the pond and sloughs over the next few weeks. And finally, mahogany duns (size 16) and October caddis (size 12) should get rolling as we

Cutthroats rebound well

Community School boys’ soccer team

blanks Gooding after first loss

Sometimes a loss can shake things up.

“I don’t even know how to explain it,” Sun Valley Community School senior goalkeeper Blake Currey said. “It was just eye-opening to everyone. We lost and we needed it. Truthfully. You never like it. We needed it. We came from that loss, and we didn’t have a practice or anything, but we all knew we needed to work 10 times harder to win, of course, but to achieve the goals we set.”

The Cutthroats defeated Gooding, 2-0, on Sept. 12 on Browning Field at the Dumke Family Sagewillow Campus. That came two days after a 3-2 loss at Wendell.

“That loss definitely put a chip on our shoulder,” senior defender Lachlan McFarland said. “We had a talk Saturday night. We have to work harder because we want to make this season successful.

“They’re good games, though. The close ones are the best ones. They’re the most competitive.”

Currey added, “We learned from that loss, 100 percent. We knew what needed to get done today and we did it. Losing Russ and Nils after that loss wasn’t easy.”

Russ Stumph and Nils Gallaway, co-captains along with Currey, were not on the field against Gooding due to sickness and injury.

“I had to communicate a lot more,” said Currey, who was named Man of the Match along with junior defender Sebastian Lerner. “Communication is key when there are different players back there. We all trust each other, it’s just different back there without Russ and Nils. We’re looking to get them back and healthy soon.

“Everyone on this team is good.”

The Cutthroats made it 1-0 five minutes into the second half when sophomore Zeppelin Pilaro scored off passes from junior Asher Maxwell and sophomore Easton Turck.

Gooding responded by hitting the post two minutes later.

“They definitely had some super fast, athletic kids,” McFarland said of the Senators. “We had tons of

opportunities today.”

Junior Tom Mendoza scored with about seven minutes left on a play that was started in the defensive third with a steal by McFarland.

“It’s good to see the team winning again, sharing the love,” McFarland said.

The Cutthroats lost their first game of the season on Sept. 10. Pilaro and senior midfielder Auggie Rose scored the goals. Rose was named Man of the Match.

The Community School is 6-1 and 5-1 in High Desert Conference action.

The Cutthroats welcome Buhl today at 4:30 p.m., visit Kimberly at 6:15 p.m. on Sept. 16 and head to Phil Homer Field at 3 p.m. on Sept. 17 to take on rival Wood River.

Wendell leads the conference at 7-0. It is followed by the Cutthroats, Gooding (4-3), Bliss (4-3), Kimberly (3-3) and Buhl (3-4). Declo (1-6) and Filer (0-7) round out the standings.

head into the second half of September. Remember, while fishing in the Preserve, you are required to sign in. This can be done via your phone with the QR code posted at all access points or by texting “Visitor” to 833-593-0682.

BIG WOOD: The Wood is low, and the water is cool. As a result, there is no need to start fishing too early in the day. On any given day you will find a nice mix of bugs including small caddis, baetis, flying ants, crane flies, and red quills. When you find fish, they tend to be spread out in and around the deeper holding water, feeding voraciously. Approach with caution and observe the water before making your first cast and you are sure to find fish holding in a variety of water types.

THE UPPER LOST: Focus your fishing on the main stem of the Upper Lost from the North Fork confluence on down. Expect there to be maybe a slew of smaller fish with one or two good fish per bucket. There might be a few whitefish as well. Like all our mountain rivers, fishing is best from the middle of the day into the late afternoon.

THE LOST BELOW MACKAY: The flows are still holding at 200

cubic feet per second. The cooler weather has moved the bug activity to the late morning and through the middle of the day. Expect to see a few tricos and a plethora of baetis, especially on the cool, cloudy days. When the bugs are gone, be prepared to nymph.

SALMON RIVER: Before traveling up state Highway 75 to Stanley be sure to check on road closures due to the Ross Fork Fire. If you decide to go, both the upper and lower Salmon are fishing well right now. With the lower flows, walk and wade fishing is a good way to approach the water; however, floating the lower reaches is still an option.

SOUTH FORK OF THE BOISE: The flows are up a tad to just under 600 cubic feet per second but should drop even more very soon. Expect to see pinks, PMDs, baetis, and flavs in the afternoons. Also, craneflies will be seen skittering about along with a few caddis. If you find no bugs, you might try a hopper. Nymphing is also going to be productive especially for whitefish.

LOCAL PONDS: Lake Creek Pond, Penny Lake, and Gaver’s Lagoon have been stocked and are a nice place for a family picnic.

Crazy violent people are here. Man and woman blocked both sides of the bike path. Said “On your left” twice, no effect. Said to the guy that when people want to pass he needed to get single file, he screamed obscenities and threatened to beat me up.

The three hardest words to say in the Wood River Valley. “On your left.” Why is that? It should be common courtesy.

They are just giving the throne to Charles?! Nepotism at its best!
