A Good-bye From Miss Caldwell Night Rodeo by Bobbie Hall, Miss CNR Queen Bobbi Hall
Caldwell Night Rodeo, it has been such an honor to represent such an amazing rodeo this past year. If someone would have told me the number of miles I would travel or the numerous friends I would make, I wouldn’t have believed them. The last 365 days have become more than an “experience”. The days have become memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Being Miss Caldwell Night 2017 is a part of my life I will always look back on, with a smile. This past year would not have been possible without the amazing support group I’ve been blessed with. Thank you to each and every person who has lent a hand, or even just a smile throughout this year. I appreciate it more than you will ever know. Also, I would like to thank the Caldwell Night Rodeo Board, especially Nikki Zachary, for all you have done to help me get down the road and follow my dreams. The amount of support you have given me is beyond expectation, so thank you. Now I would like to thank my parents, grandparents, and yes even my brother, for giving up your weekends and days off to make sure I made it to an appearance on time. Thank you for dedicating the last year of your lives to helping me develop and grow and a young lady. Your support is more than I could ever ask for and I love you more than words can describe. And last, but certainly not least, I would like to thank the community of Caldwell for making Caldwell Night Rodeo such an amazing event to represent. None of us would be here without you. Thank you, once again, to everyone for such an amazing year. This has surely been the perfect start to an amazing future.

‘Help Wanted’ signs are flourishing in Caldwell, which is a great sign for this community. People going back to work is never a bad thing, but I fear our local labor market is far too vulnerable to market fluctuations. Frequently, business owners, managers, or leaders in this community, express difficulty in finding qualified employees. What if you had the opportunity to create the employees you want? For the future well being of this community it is important for business owners and mangers to encourage continuing education for their employees. Learning a new language or earning a certification enhances the individual employees skill set directly benefiting your organization and customers. Employees with diverse skill sets are more likely to survive economic fluctuations, as are the businesses that employ them.
Colleges and training facilities are feeling the pressure of low enrollment and are adapting to the needs of the underemployed and not just focusing on the unemployed or traditional student. This creates a perfect opportunity for the working adult to make school and work transpire at the same time. Business and community leaders, it is your voice that will guide us toward a robust, diverse local economy and our community will be forever grateful for it.

Indian Creek is a wonderful asset to the Caldwell area. It is equipped with a beautiful walking trail along the water, along with nature and convenience of restrooms that can be accessed by the outside of TVCC. While walking you also pass Creekside Coffee and Rubaiyat bookstore. People of all ages can be seen enjoying it throughout the day as well as pet owners. Children are often spotted hunting painted rocks from Caldwell Rocks group. They are full of delight when they spy each one and later re-hide the rocks for the next visitors. The sounds of nature and the rustic bridges make Indian Creek a great family outing. Sitting down by the water provides a slower pace of life where one can sit back and ponder. . . It’s a great place to get in a walk or jog. While visiting I saw mama duck and her ducklings along with a weasel running over the bridge. Indian Creek also has picnic tables and wifi making it a great place to bring your lunch for a quick breath of fresh air.

Old-Fashioned Family Fun-Greenleaf, Idaho!

by Mindy Scott, Editor
Hundreds of people had a blast celebrating the 4th of July in Greenleaf, Idaho. The OldFashioned Family Fun Day was a hit filled with outside fun, the oldfashioned way. An event of this magnitude and success took many volunteers and people pitching in. There were no funds set aside for this event this year, but that did not stop this great community from going forward with it. This event was definitely a community effort. The event kicked off with a pancake breakfast put on by Greenleaf Friends Academy. Next, the parade took place where unique vehicles, horses, businesses, bicycles, tractors, and trucks took part in a patriotic procession while throwing candy to the excited children. Some were even surprised when they were thrown water instead of candy which was appreciated by some on such a hot summer day. Directly following the parade, opening events began. Kids signed up for games delegated by age range. At several times during the day, excitement grew as a small cannon, packed with candy as ammunition was launched by Mr. Fillmore. Children would line up on cue and wait for candy to explode through the air and then run after it picking it up at record speeds. Cliffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Country Market donated watermelons for the Watermelon Eating Contest, Melton Family Farms lent their pigs for the Pig Scramble, and MANY other individuals and families worked together. A special thanks to all who set up from the musician, vendors and the participants. Each person played a unique role in the creation of this special day that many will remember forever. Seeing so many people interacting and enjoying themselves without the use of technology was refreshing!

Our Memories Indian Creek Museum
Girls’ toy room
Having a problem with your children being bored this summer? Our Memories Indian Creek museum in Caldwell has at least the following three things that could help your children weather the boredom blues. 1) A tour that shows the Fifties surgery and treatment rooms; 2) a girls’ toy room and a boys toy room to explore what children did before television, and 3)with the evolution of recording voices, a tour through the imagination to reproduce sound through phonographs, radio and movies. The health care field is one of the fastest growing fields today and understanding the challenges that have been overcome by looking at and describing the processes of the 1950’s health care field as demonstrated by the surgery and x-ray rooms in the museum feed the
imagination of what is to come for the discerning youngster. The facility that now is a museum also lends itself to a study of how laboratory work has changed. In Dr. Finck’s original practice there was only the small laboratory, but an addition housed the bigger lab that served the entire state of Idaho. Children in the thirties needed to use their imagination as they played making some of their toys appear to be unchallenging to the modern eye. But our boys’ toy room has board games, a View master, and trucks and cars to help the imagination of the small child. The girls’ toy room shows what a youngster could play with that helped to build skills for the child becoming a homemakercooking tops, dolls with hand made clothes, a unique doll house, and the movie star doll (Shirley Temple). Music and Radio programs are clearly learning facilities for young people and in the museum we have examples of early record machines as well as organs, pianos and other musical instruments. Children before television would often gather with their families in the evenings to hear such radio programs as The Lone Ranger, the Jack Benny show, and The Shadow. A favorite past-time for one day a week would be coming to
town to see a movie show. Caldwell had three movie theaters at one time and was always an attraction for the out-of-towners to come with their families to view a movie. Candy can be part of a child’s life, so this museum also has a sweet room with origination dates for many candies. There is also a recipe for Vinegar candy that children can help to make and then eat! If children still need to be entertaining themselves, how about a look at some of the games and activities created in the book Family Fun compiled with the Cooperation of the National Recreation Association published in 1931. Of interest is the Peanut Scramble (p, 94) where a paper sack of (unshelled) peanuts is tied up and thrown over a limb of a tree, then a blindfolded child whacks away at the paper sack, until it breaks open and spills all the peanuts on the ground for the children to pick up. (Sound familiar?) To reinforce the idea of creativity and imagination, any visitor to the museum in the next month can receive a Family Fun Magazine with oodles of ideas for creative crafts and cooking. We welcome visiting families and hope to see you soon.

The Caldwell Farmers Market has some exciting events coming up, August 9th we will be celebrating National Farmers Market week. Idaho Preferred will be on hand to answer questions. We will also have some fun children’s activities, sponsored by the Market and by the Master Gardeners. Stop by the Oasis Honey booth and for $1.00 you can guess how many pounds of potatoes will be If you are going to spend a day in your boat with someone, maybe a lengthy pickup ride as well, you better enjoy their company. Over the years, I have had some wonderful days on the water with friends and family. My Grandad, Loy Sandy, rode ditch for the Pioneer Irrigation System for 50 years. He was a remarkable man. His approach to life was simple, believe in your savior and don’t overthink things. He had an old wooden boat chained to a cottonwood tree on the east end of Lake Lowell. After he completed his rounds on the Phyllis Canal many summer afternoons would find me and Grandad in that ole boat fishing for bullhead and perch. I know he enjoyed my company and I revered his. Dr. Robert Boron was a man I had the pleasure of fishing with on a trip to Canada with his son Kenny. He was an amazing story teller. He literally raised himself from a very early age to become a doctor, an amazing tale of the human spirit.

Bruce Kissee and his wife Luann never had kids, but they raised a bunch. They are in their Sixties and still raising teenage daughters. God bless them. Before they began adopting kids, Bruce and I fished the Madison, Henrys Fork, and every river and reservoir in between. Bruce would be the first to tell you not every kid went to Harvard or West Point, but he gave them a chance. He currently resides in Cascade, Id. My wife Karen worked different jobs throughout our 40-year marriage but the last twenty-two years she worked for Southwestern Idaho Cooperative Housing Authority, SICHA, as a property manager. She was genuinely interested in helping people procure housing. After retirement she started volunteering for Treasure Valley Community Resource Center, TVCRC. Jette Rogers is co-founder of the nonprofit organization started in Caldwell in 1992. Good job Jette. Good

job Mayor Nancolas in your recognition of Jette’s hard work. Good job to my wife. We have spent countless hours in almost as many boats on numerous lakes and rivers in the Northwest. We have together experienced the delicate presentation of a dry fly to using eight pound lead balls on the end of a down rigger to catch lake trout. July marks the beginning of this Great Nation, thanks to all the Vets who have sacrificed to keep it great.

Everything I Ever Needed To Learn About Life...I Learned In My Garden
My first attempt at gardening didn’t look anything like the gardens on TV or my Pinterest page. It looked more like somebody launched a seed grenade behind my fence, shut the gate, and allowed the chaos of nature to do its handiwork. I referred to it as my Crack Plants. What can I say? I’m from the middle of the Nevada desert and was more like the Grim Reaper of Gardening than Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary – no silver bells or cockle shells up in Vegas, baby. Still, I soldiered on, subjecting my strawberries to shade, forcing my potatoes and tomatoes to live next to each other (just because plants’ names somewhat rhyme does not make them soul mates), and assuming my pumpkins and squash would play nicely with all the other vegetation and politely keep their vines to themselves. Here’s the precious little that I knew beyond doubt: I could grow weeds like nobody’s business – I was a wild, weed-growin’ machine. You know what it takes to grow a successful garden? No fear. As with any venture in this life, a person can’t be afraid to fail and should not allow herself to be defined by her mistakes. Take this to the bank: Failure shortens that learning curve right up. The real failure is in the giving up and the walking away – in believing the delusion that you’re just not good at something and you never will be. So, I wasn’t Martha Stewart straight out of the gate. So what? I read a book or two and got on Pinterest. The Mormons here in Idaho took this desert
flower under their wings and showed her a trick or two. Most importantly, I was right back at it the following season and the next and the next and the next. Your garden will teach you what you need to know in this life if you listen to her. Aside from all that, it’s just plain fun to dig around in the dirt. Did I know what the heck I was doing before I grew Brussels sprouts? Nope. I didn’t even know if I liked them so, of course, I grew five plants. Had no clue the sprouts grew up the stems – I kept looking at the top, waiting for the little buggers to pop out. They never came. I kept peeking into the leaves at the top and couldn’t figure out why these guys were almost three feet tall with nothing to show for it. Finally, my girlfriend told me to look down the side. By God, there they were! I harvested those suckers like a BOSS! My gardens started to grow amazingly as did my crazy mad skills. Eventually she started to produce a bit of wisdom in me. Gardening helps you to have faith and to see beyond. Even though you know you won’t see anything stick its head up out of the ground for several days, it won’t stop you from running out every morning and surveying the land. Somewhere deep down you know what each seed will become, and you wouldn’t dare to miss the moment their faces touch the sunshine. You know in your knower something will be making an appearance soon. Gardening boosts your confidence. Just one bite of fresh, organic produce on the tip of your tongue, and you’ll know you have conquered the world. Once you get the hang of this, you won’t be able to keep it to yourself. You will be the queen (or king) of the culdesac going door to door with bags of lettuce and pounds of peas, making new friends. Their gratitude will make you feel like a Power Puff Girl (or Boy), and it will be confirmed in your heart what you knew all along: you are Martha Stewart incarnate. Gardening produces patience. No immediate gratification here, folks. You have to wait. If you pull fruit or veggies too soon, you will not receive the
by Daisy Rain Martin
reward you seek. Lord knows that’s too much darn work to go to waste. Gardening teaches you about commitment. You want to go on vacation? You have fun. Just tell me who’s going to water and weed your garden before you go? These are the things you have to worry about since that garden depends on you. Gardening gives you a sense of accomplishment. Six plastic salad bowls full of tomatoes will make you the happiest soul on the planet. A freezer full of berries, syrup- and jam-ready along with potato soup and spaghetti sauce? You’re good to go for the entire winter and so are many of your friends and neighbors. Gardening makes you brave. All this gives you a sense of ownership and turns you into an overprotective force to be reckoned with. You will not go gentle into the night when the howling wind plucks you from sleep; you’ll race from your house to anchor galvanized pails over your new seedlings without so much as slipping on your slippers. You will wage war on worms and battle bugs you’ve never heard of. You’ll stick the garden hose in one gopher hole and stand over the other with a white-knuckled vice grip on the Rodent Shovel of Death. You will be shocked at what you are willing to do. Gardening shows you how to let go. You won’t conquer every storm, every enemy. You won’t. Fruit will die on the vine, and you will anguish its loss in your heart. There will be hail. Don’t even get me started on the abomination that is hail. Never again will you be out in the garden and think to yourself, What a sweet little butterfly. It’s not a butterfly. It’s a moth, and they lay eggs in your cabbage. They are the devil. You cannot beat them. But at the end of each season, know that your garden will produce more than you can eat and more than you can put on the tables of your friends, and you will all be grateful for God’s provision and bounty. You will have given away more food and more blessings than you ever thought possible. You will be a vessel of abundance. And your heart will be full.

Ethiopia is a surprisingly diverse country, with habitats from below sea level to those well over 14,000’. It is a bit off the beaten path for those birding Africa, which makes it more interesting for those interested in exploring. In
addition to great birds and landscapes, the friendly and curious kids who joined us almost everywhere, were most memorable. Finally, the traditional spicy dishes, served on injera, made every meal memorable.

Keeping Kids Active During the School Year
by Jacqueline Amende
It is evident that summer is ending and the school year is beginning when school supplies start lining the store shelves. Although this may mean parents can start to relax from the busy summer, it also means that the challenge to keep your child motivated to be active after a long school day will begin. The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends children and teens have at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), only 27% of children and teens are reaching this daily recommendation. These guidelines are not to be taken lightly. Daily physical activity has rock-solid evidence backing it up. It has
been proven to help improve sleep, manage stress and anxiety, and boost energy and concentration. Along with managing weight and decreasing health risks, daily exercise as a child will likely lead to better overall health management in the future as it sets a foundation for healthy living. As school returns and the time for activity decreases, it may become more difficult to ensure that your child is engaging in enough physical activity. However, it is important to remember that the recommended 60 minutes can be done in short spurts throughout the day. Taking advantage of these short spurts can help us, and your children, move more and sit less. Here are some tips to take with you: • Take a family walk or
bike ride after dinner on nice weather evenings. • During any TV time, encourage “active” commercials where they can choose different exercises, like jumping jacks, push-ups, wallsits, etc. • Encourage outside play when it’s nice outside or have a fun activity inside, like a dance party or a hula-hoop contest. • Assign age-appropriate chores that are more physically active, like sweeping the floor or raking leaves. Along with these tips, encourage your children to participate in after school programs and extracurricular activities. These typically bring more of a structured environment and can lead to increased daily activity.

We are beyond thrilled at the participation in our Adult Summer Reading program this year. We don’t have a final count of participants yet, but it’s near the 200 mark. Compared to the 16 adults who participated last year, 200 is absolutely amazing! Thank you to everyone who participated. We hope to offer more reading incentives to next year’s program.

Following the parade on July 4th, 2017 I was introduced to a group called Gem State Young Marines at Memorial Park. They had set up the beautiful flag walk way many enjoyed. The mission of this group is to teach young boys and girls how to be strong leaders, say no to peer pressure, participate in a community, and build character that will last a life time. I was inspired to learn that such a group exists right here in the Treasure Valley. These young men were very polite and professional with the growing demeanor of a well disciplined Marine.

West Valley welcomes new chief nursing officer
West Valley Medical Center CEO Betsy Hunsicker is pleased to announce the appointment of Tracee Hendershott, of Denver, Colo., to the position of chief nursing officer. Hendershott comes to Caldwell from Rose Medical Center, which is owned and operated by West Valley’s parent company, HCA Healthcare. As CNO, Hendershott is responsible for the delivery and development of hospital-wide patient care programs, as well as clinical policies and procedures. She identifies and implements opportunities throughout the hospital for the monitoring, evaluation and improvement of patient care. Hendershott is a graduate of the HCA Continental Division’s
Nurse Leadership Development Program. “I look forward to exploring the mountains and lakes around this area. We love to ski, camp and mountain bike,” Hendershott said of her husband, two children and three dogs. “Leaving a big city and experiencing life with a tight knit, quiet community is so appealing to my husband and me. We were just waiting for the right opportunity and I feel so fortunate to have found it in Caldwell.”
Back to School Shopping 101
Chief Nursing Officer Tracee Hendershott
By: Emily Valla, Senior Marketplace Director, BBB
If you’re like me, you aren’t ready for summer to be over; it seems like it just began. But sooner, rather than later, we’ll be sending the kids off to start the new school year. Back to school shopping is the true sign that summer is coming to an end, just as the sunburns and bug bites were starting to heal. While the school bell isn’t ringing quite yet, retail stores are starting to push the notebooks, binders, pencils and pens closer to the center aisles. It may seem too soon to start buying, or maybe we are in denial, but according to the National Retail Federation, 27 percent of families begin their shopping two months before the first day of school, while 21 percent wait until the last week or two before the school starts. It’s also estimated that families with school age children will be spending 8 percent more this year than last, averaging $687 on clothes, technology, shoes and supplies. That’s a huge chunk of change! Make sure every penny is well spent with these BBB tips that are as easy as 1-2-3: Create a shopping list. Make a list by each child or by store to avoid multiple trips. Check around the house for items you may already have. Avoid impulse buying while you’re out and about. Stick to a budget. A budget will help shape your shopping list and help limit purchases to only items you need. Knowing your budget will also allow you to put money towards larger items or a special purchase. Research major purchases. When shopping for laptops, calculators, dorm refrigerators and other large purchases, do your homework. Research companies on BBB.org, check out different brands and read reviews on products you’re looking for to see what meets your expectations. Take advantage of discounts. Some stores offer educational discounts on hot items like laptops and uniforms. Look online and ask store associates about possible savings for teachers and students. Check out the sales. Compare prices between different retail stores, save coupons and be sure to redeem cash-back or rebate offers. Sign-up for email alerts and consider downloading shopping apps for your favorite stores. Review advertisements. Review ads for restrictions on quantities, and dates for sale and return policies. When shopping online, read the fine print for return and exchange policies and take advantage of free shipping specials. Buy in bulk. Some schools ask parents to buy items that will be used by the entire class (tissues, hand sanitizer, etc.). Get together with other parents to save by purchasing in large quantities. Save your receipts. You’ll need them if you want to make an exchange or return an item. Remember some items are non-refundable or have a 30-day return period.

Where To Find a Perfect Education With the school year quickly approaching, many parents weigh the options for schooling that will prepare and equip their children in the best way possible. Since the needs, interests, and strengths of every child are different, the school choice will also vary. The State of Idaho recognizes parents’ right to choose the method of education that will work best for their children. So, where is this perfect nurturing environment that produces a love of learning and builds strong academic foundation? Is it a tried and tested public system or possibly another alternative? It is quite astounding that Idaho’s legislature allows parents to educate their children without regulation by the state in any fashion. Parents are the very people who care and will do everything in the best interest of the child. The Idaho State Department of Education (SDE) provides great resources to every parent and guardian of students no matter which route they take. School choice is determined by many factors: the way a child learns, possible physical or learning disabilities, family and cultural background (consider ESL, religious affiliation, Indian Education, migrant workers), and even basic things such as student transportation. The structure and curriculum of public education can be intimidating to some, but there are alternatives. Besides the traditional public schools, there are also charter schools, alternative schools, magnate schools, private schools, and home school. A child attending his/her neighborhood school enjoys the privileges such as free admission, bus transportation to and from school, as well as standardized learning and assessments. Another way to receive free public education is to sign student up for charter school. These public schools of choice are usually with a focus on specific mission, and are organized by parents, teachers or community members. Usually, charter schools use a lottery system for enrollment. Similar to charter schools, magnet schools are free public schools of choice. These schools implement a specific instructional theme, curriculum, or instruction method that is
by Polina Bratkov
used throughout the school. A magnet school may focus on bilingual immersion program or a subject such as technology or engineering. Again, there is a limited enrollment that will involve application. There are 56 alternative schools that serve at-risk youth of Idaho. These are the schools that help earn at-risk students a high school diploma. Some of the qualifications include pregnancy, substance abuse, or behavior that is detrimental to academic progress. High school students can attend either a full school year or a summer school. Apart from the public education, parents also have a variety of private schools they can choose from. These for or non-profit educational organizations run independently of the public education system. And since they do not receive federal funding, parents pay for students to attend a private school. If, for any reason, these five options are not suitable for one specific child, parents can always choose to home school. The State of Idaho provides parents with the freedom to select the curriculum they wish to use. In this state homeschooling is managed entirely by the parent or guardian and is not regulated in any way. There is no registration or sign-up procedure. However, there is also no state funding to cover the costs. The State Department of Education recommends home school organizations to help families exploring the home school option such as Idaho Coalition of Home Educators, Homeschooling in Idaho , Homeschool World – Idaho, Homeschool Legal Defense Association, and National homeschool organizations. As parents strive to provide a perfect education to their children, they must not forget the most important task of parenting. We are called to shape their lives by shaping their character and worldview. Even though it is wonderful if they turn out to be well-rounded and impressively educated, it is not our end goal. Let us not get lost in our educational pursuits. Let us remember that besides giving our children a fulfilling education, we are called to mold their souls.

Domestic Violence and Back-To-School
It’s school time again! You’re probably feeling excited and maybe a little sad that summer is over. Some kids feel nervous or a little scared on the first day of school because of all the new things: new teachers, new friends, and maybe even a new school. These can be very overwhelming experiences, but especially for a child who has experienced domestic violence. If a child has been exposed to domestic violence they may exhibit some or all of the following: • Be unmotivated both in and out of class • Have trouble following rules • Be tense and fearful at dropoff time or be afraid to go to school at all • Have difficulty understanding teacher’s instructions • Have trouble communicating needs • Have difficulty reading, writing, or expressing themselves • Have attention or behavior problems • Challenge teacher’s authority to compensate for feelings of vulnerability or lack of self-
control • Have trouble making friends • Have physical problems, such as insomnia, sleepwalking, nightmares, stomachaches, headaches, diarrhea, ulcers, or asthma • Struggle with feelings of powerlessness that cause aggressive behavior or withdrawal Whether directly or indirectly exposed, children who are exposed to domestic violence experience the painful effects of abuse. Even if they themselves are not directly being hurt, they feel the pain and fear that comes from living with someone who is threatening and controlling. And since abuse and violence are learned behaviors, part of the impact on children can also involve them taking on the cultural beliefs that support domestic abuse. At Hope Lane Learning Center, (HLLC) we work with children who have been exposed to domestic abuse. HLLC, a program of Advocates Against Family Violence, is a preschool and after school program for children 6 weeks
to twelve years of age. HLLC is open to the community and provides a safe, nurturing environment with fun, focused, learning activities for all ages. Hope Lane Learning Center, a State-certified child care facility, is able to accept ICCP and service low-income families in need of superior child care. All of the staff is CPR certified and completes regular, ongoing education and certifications to keep up to date with all child care regulations. Our staff also hold Child Development Associates certifications. The Child Development Associate (CDA) is based on a core set of competency standards, which guide early care professionals as they work toward becoming qualified teachers of young children. If you or someone you know is in need of assistance on their path to freedom, please call 459-6330 and ask to speak with an advocate or counselor.

Note from the editor
It’s been one challenging month. I try to remember that famous saying, “What doesn’t kill Mindy Scott you makes you stronger.” When in the trenches it doesn’t bring me much comfort. Our family has experienced more sickness than usual with the flu, colds, and sore throats all within a 30 day time slot. When the parents both come down with sickness, that is temporarily debilitating, the family experiences what I call a system overload. During this time all priorities shift and we enter into survival mode- the act of doing the bare minimum to get thru the day. No fancy meals, house chores, or structure. As we all lay resting in between people vomiting I began to think how all my expectations were wiped away in a mere moment. One moment everyone was fine and then slowly people were falling sick. I was forced to live in the moment and take care of the bare essentials. As I regained strength and could rock, cuddle, and carry littles throughout the day to help
Make this summer a chapter to remember!
comfort them I was thankful. I remember a wise woman telling me years ago in the stage of a colicky baby, “this too shall pass”. While we can visually see the stages of the seasons change we can often miss the subtleties of our life changing before our eyes. While in the hard places, the ease of life seems to not exist. I encourage myself and you to not give up. In one days time things can change. Like anytime one is sick and then recovers, a new level of gratitude is reached in the area of health. I’ve had a few days of this emotion in between catching a head cold and a sore throat. What I’m learning most is to care for myself in the same nurturing way I do for our kids. That means talking kind to myself when I’m lethargic and not feeling up to my peppy self. After all, wherever I go, there I will be. I hope this article finds you all in good health with plans of enjoying this final month of summer. I look forward to a complete family recovery to good health filled with more laughter and less tears.
NOT IMPORTANT...BUT POSSIBLY OF INTEREST!
by Wayne Cornell
August 10, 1967 fell on a Thursday. The high temperature that day was 95 degrees. But it felt hotter. The crowd inside Caldwell’s Boone Memorial Presbyterian Church wasn’t very large – probably not more than 75 people, mostly relatives. I was 22 years old. Sara was 19. That’s awfully young to be a bride by today’s standards but fairly normal in those days. That night we stayed at the Thunderbird Motel on Capitol Boulevard in Boise, next to Boise State College. It’s gone now. The next day we drove to Yellowstone National Park and spent the night at Old Faithful Inn. On Saturday, we did a quick drive through the park and stayed the night in Jackson Hole, where the price of a hamburger at the A&W drive-in was nearly double what we normally paid. The next day we drove home (I had to be back at work Monday morning). Fifty years -- half a century. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we brought our first family member, Candee, a Border Collie pup, home from the Boise dog pound. The births of our three daughters still are vivid memories as are a multitude of family outings, school concerts, field trips and basketball games. Then just when we seemed to be getting up to cruising speed on The Road of Life, our parents, who we could also turn to for advice, were gone and we had to draw our own maps. Then we woke up one morning and the house was empty. Our youngsters were off building their own dreams. Anyone who has been married 50 years and claims to have never had any problems
or arguments is either fibbing or suffering from dementia. We’ve had our share of conflicts over the years (with yours truly admittedly being responsible for most of them). But somehow we made it through those times. Maybe our upbringing helped. We both came from families where the parents were together until the end. They probably had bad moments, too, but they stuck it out and never involved their kids. Role models seem to be harder to find in the modern “it’s all about me” world. But the major reason we are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary is Sara. She’s the one who hung in there and got college degrees that provided a solid job. She’s the one who came home from work and cleaned house and took care of the kids while her husband was running around the countryside doing his thing instead of carrying his share of the home work load. She’s the one who balanced the checkbook despite my best efforts to unbalance it. She’s the role model who pointed our children in the right direction. Most people have some regrets in their lives. This writer has more than a few. If I could do it over again, knowing what I’ve learned over the past five decades, I would like to think I would do some things differently. But one thing I have never regretted is asking that brunette from Marsing, Idaho to marry me. Happy Anniversary, Browneyes.

Starr is confronted with issues well beyond her years and is forced to grow up quickly as she defends Khalil (both within their social circles, and on a legal level) and eventually finds her own voice through the events initiated by his untimely death. This book is timely and an important read for everyone from about the age of thirteen on up. Buy it, read it, share it, discuss it. Thomas does a fantastic job of taking a headline that we see over and over in the news and turning it into
a relatable storythese could be kids we all know. This is possibly the most important YA book to come out in 2017. “That’s the problem. We let people say stuff, and they say it so much that it becomes okay to them and normal for us. What’s the point of having a voice if you’re gonna be silent in those moments you shouldn’t be?” – The Hate U Give, Angie Thomas

Kyle Collins, DMD
When Khalil is shot by a police officer during a routine traffic stop, Starr, his friend and passenger, is the one who holds his head as he bleeds out on the sidewalk. In the days and weeks that follow, it falls to her to not only be his defender and voice, but to sort out where the truth lies in the stories being told by the media and the neighborhood about who Khalil was. Did she ever know the “real” him? Do the labels “suspected” and “possible” make his murder justified?

Dave Hughes began fly-fishing for trout in his early teens and for the last thirty-six years, he has made a study of trout streams and lakes, the natural foods on which trout feed, and the flies that take trout in the widest variety of circumstances. Dave has fished for trout around the world, is founding president of Oregon Trout, and a life member of the Federation of Fly Fishers. He has written regularly for Fly Fisherman, Fly Rod & Reel, Fly Fishing, American Angler, Field & Stream, and Gray’s Sporting Journal and is a respected author with over 20 books to his credit. He lives in Portland, Oregon. (From his official bio) American Fly Tying Manual is a good, basic beginner’s startup guide. The book explains fly anatomy clearly and concisely. Instructions are easy to follow and include dry, wet, nymphs, steelhead and salmon, streamers and bucktails, and muddler head. Many new, artificial materials have come available since this edition was released in 1989, however, you can get very good, durable flies with all-natural materials. His tools list is delightfully brief though he does explain additional tools that will get added to the wish list rather quickly! This is an ideal book for anyone considering tying their own flies. The patterns listed for each category are typical and will have one or more that should be effective in most locations.
