    Election news from across the Knight Ridder network and the Web

    Homes away from home 

    John Kerry and his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry are on a skiing/snowboarding vacation in Idaho. But they're not exactly staying at the Motel 6. They're staying at one of their many homes, this one in the wooded mountains of Ketchum. Located near the banks of the Big Wood River, the nearly $5 million house is a reassembled barn, originally built in England in 1485, and brought to Idaho by Heinz Kerry's late husband, H. John Heinz III.

    The Kerrys at leat five homes and vacation getaways valued at nearly $33 million. Some are private escapes for the family, while others serve as prime spots to host fundraisers and exclusive gatherings for wealthy donors. All reflect the couple's status -- he is a four-term Massachusetts senator, she is heiress to the $500 million family ketchup fortune -- with breathtaking vistas, elegant furnishings and enclosures that protect the property from prying eyes.

    Each home has a place in the family's life, with its own history and mission, from the preppy island of Nantucket and Boston's Beacon Hill to the Pittsburgh countryside, from the Idaho mountains to the nation's capital.
