Why Another Newspaper?

By Michael Hensel, Caldwell Perspective

Thanks for picking up this copy of the Caldwell Perspective. Your second thought after “What a great looking little newspaper,” is probably “Why are they publishing another one?” That’s a good question which I’ll do my best to answer. In all modesty, newspapers are the lifeblood of any community. Even though we as an industry are in decline with the big papers losing subscribers and the doomsayers declaring us no longer a mass media by 2030, small community papers continue to thrive and continue to provide a necessary forum for their constituents. We are here to provide space for you. This is how you can keep in touch with your neighbors, their kids, grandkids, all the people that are active in our community. Whether it be the debate team at the

2014 Winter Wonderland Tree Lighting Ceremony high school or the latest bingo winners at the senior citizen center we want to publish what is important to you. The ideas are limitless, even if it’s just to rub in your horseshoe victory over your neighbor, send it in and we will put it in print. Have some fun and share a smile or a laugh. If you have an itch to write a column, don’t hesitate to give us a call - we would love to hear your idea. There are plenty of outlets for the bad news, we all know about the latest car chase or shooting from watching TV and checking the Internet. As

we grow we will cover some of that from the human-interest standpoint, how it impacts our neighbors and our neighborhoods. If you have a unique perspective or insight please share, but for the most part we’ll leave that to the big boys and provide you with a paper you can read to your kids without worry. We also want to help provide a thriving marketplace, a place you can go to sell that old snowblower or buy a new one. Ideas for gifts (which if you’re like me are always last minute) and a resource for our local businesses to

reach you with their best deals and indispensable services. Take a look, call them up and get that haircut. or that book for in front of the fire. Since we’re locally owned every dime spent on advertising stays in our community where it belongs. We will post your stories online and your ads for the entire world to read. So, why another newspaper? Because this one is your opportunity to grab your fifteen minutes of fame, read about your neighbors, and participate in the community. Thanks again for picking us up.

My newspaper industry career began in Burns, OR. in 2002. From my first day on the job, it felt like an old pair of broken in cowboy boots. As they say in the industry, “I’ve got ink in my blood”. The Caldwell Perspective came to me in what I call an “aha” moment. I was sitting at the College of Idaho listening to Roger Brooks speak about the future direction of Caldwell. I reflected on my years of High School at Vallivue and the words of my parents. “Don’t you go hang out in downtown Caldwell. Why don’t you kids go shoot whistlepigs in the Owyhees or go fishing down off Map Rock Road.” (Could you imagine saying that to your kids these days?) Pulled away from my memories by the exclamation point of Roger’s voice, a much different picture was drawn for me. Caldwell is not the same place it was in the mid-90’s.

Right now it seems like Caldwell is this huge sleeping volcano with lots of stuff going on just under the surface and it's just waiting to explode. I want to be there when it happens. You can just feel it, as change begins to happen, with the Roger Brooks' study going on, the Kings' parking lot being leveled, with people buying some of the empty buildings as they try to figure out how they will fit them into the downtown scheme of things. Exciting times lie ahead. There have already been a couple of business owners take a "leap in faith", by expanding their businesses and remodeling their buildings, energizing a bright new future for downtown business in Caldwell. Other business owners are beginning to perk up and take notice. This could be the beginning of something really big for Caldwell. We already have some great established events that bring

Our Community St Alphonsus Shaves Heads for a Cause Nessa Parker Caldwell Perspective

On the chilly morning of Saturday November 15th, family, friends, and staff gather in the reception room of the Caldwell St. Alphonsus Medical Group to rally around the husband and father and of two, Chuck Gidney. Recently, Chuck, age 33, went in to be examined for hip pain. Much to Chuck and his family’s dismay, this seemingly innocent and routine appointment was anything but. After an x-ray and various other tests, Chuck was diagnosed with Stage III High Grade Osteosarcoma. Osteosarcoma is rare type of bone cancer only affecting 1% of all cancer diagnoses per year. Chuck’s tumor is located in his right hip and pelvic bone and branches out into his gluteus muscle. He was to receive three rounds of chemotherapy, then visit an orthopedic oncologist to have the tumor surgically removed in hopes of saving and repairing the affected bone. Chuck and his wife, Stacey have been traveling to Salt Lake City, Utah to meet with an Orthopedic Oncologist at the Huntsman Cancer Institute, which has a special Sarcoma Clinic at the University of Utah. Chuck was only supposed to be in Salt Lake for one week. Three weeks later, was is still at Huntsman. Currently, Chuck is back at the University of Utah for inpatient rehabilitation. Stacey’s parents left the day after Thanksgiving, taking the kids to see their parents. The accumulation of hospital bills and travel expenses will become quite expensive rather quickly. To help out this remarkable family, coworkers decided to give a little something of their own as incentive to raise funds. Twenty-three coworkers and friends volunteered to have their heads shaved at $250 a head. Soon enough, the donations came in and the barbering began. Chuck and Stacey couldn’t be there in person, but were able to watch through FaceTime. Stacey’s parents,

Brian and Linda Allen brought the Gidney kids. The Gidneys’ own little boy Dominic, age 4, was the first to brave the chair. When Dominic asked his sister Devyn, age 9, if she was having her head shaved too, she said no and he replied ,“Ah come on sis it’s going to be fun.” The sweet little boy then announced that he was getting his head shaved because his daddy has cancer. While he was being shaven, his mother commented, “You look just like Daddy.” The room was full of emotion over such precious moments. Lorrie Crose, from Meridian Hairrzr, and Dominic headed the shearing. While Dominic shaved Dr. Roach’s hair he announced, “I am going to cut hair and work here.” Every time a person was done Dominic would call out, “Who’s next?” as he held the clippers. As they finished the 22nd person, Juanita Nieto-Madero, a public service representative in Urgent Care, said she would shave her head if she had a sponsor. Dr. Gardner donated the $250 for her to shave her head. We at the Caldwell Perspective would like to commend these volunteers for their contribution to such a wonderful cause. It is no small feat to give up something that is so entwined with a person’s identity as their hair. It may seem like no big deal to some, but a

person’s hair is more than just a pile of keratin. It is part of what makes each of us an individual and helps the world recognize us as us. Quite frankly, people are connected to their hair both physically and emotionally. For these volunteers to give up a piece of their own identity to stand in solidarity with their friend Chuck Gidney is a truly selfless, an honorable act. Not to mention it seems a great way to bring some cheer to Dominic and Devyn. The Gidney’s still have a long way to go on Chuck’s road to recovery, but thanks to folks like these volunteers, that road should be a little less rough. So far a total of $9,967 has been raised toward the goal the goal of $15,000 or more. To donate go to any Idaho central credit union and donate to: Chuck Gidney Donations.

When he heard of this fundraiser and it’s cause he came home to his wife, Camilla and told her he was shaving his head. Camilla and their five children were there to show their support.

Sports Striving for 300 Chantele Hensel Caldwell Perspective

Nathaniel Tollman is a 3rd generation bowler. Born and raised in Caldwell, Idaho his first years in school at Washington Elementary. Followed by Syringa Middle School and now attending Vision Charter School where he maintains a 3.833 GPA. Nathaniel is currently taking an Economics Dual Credit class through Northwest Nazarene University. He is also studying Physics and Pre-Calculus through College of Western Idaho dual credit. Nathaniel enjoys school and hopes to own a business in Caldwell someday.

Nathaniel has 2 siblings, Kaylyn and Tyler. One of their family pastimes has always been bowling. He threw his first ball down a Caldwell Bowling lane at age 3. He found a passion and has enjoyed bowling ever since. Nathaniel has had many coaches but gives much credit to a couple. One being his Dad and the other his Grandfather. Nathaniel calls Caldwell Bowl home but has bowled in large events outside of the State. He has bowled in the Junior Golf Tournament in Indianapolis, Indiana, Las Vegas in 2013 with a

team and won 1st place. He went been to Buffalo, New York over the summer for the Junior Gold Tournament. The highest sanctioned game that he has bowled is a 280, about a month ago. His best sanctioned series is about 770. Nathaniel serves on the Caldwell USBC Association as the youth representative. He holds the office of Secretary for both Wednesday Leagues at 4pm and the Saturday Pinblasters on Saturday morning at 9:00a.m. After school Nathaniel works at Caldwell Bowl.

EN FUEGO DANCE TEAM ROCKS!! Just two short years ago, a group of girls gathered at the Farmway Village Community Center on the Caldwell Housing Authority campus. Their goal….to dance and have fun. That year, they earned the opportunity to dance at local, state and national Hip Hop Dance competitions, and they experienced successes at all three. Last year, with a limited budget and the desire to try something just a little different, three members of The Armada Idaho professional dance team from the Boise area were solicited to choreograph dances and give short tutorial classes to the team. The dance team learned each complete dance in just a couple of hours and then

worked really hard to practice, clean and perfect the dances before competition time. Again they earned their way to local, state and Nationals, where they earned a high gold award on each of three dances and a studio award for their efforts. The studio award may not have meant much to the team members, but to Mike and Tammy Dittenber, and Cece Flores, who helped mentor and lead the team, it elicited tears and was a sign of having succeeded at creating a lasting dance experience for the dance team. You see, there is no studio. There is no dance instructor. There is no ballet bar and there were no mirrors in the community center until mid-year. The girls had never seen themselves dance! Fundraising had taken the shape of carnivals, selling raffle tickets, soliciting donations, and relying on the kindness of a group of foundation members who saw the good in the girls and fostered it by making sure they and their families got to attend National dance competition in Salt Lake, UT for two years in a row. This fall, a young man, and another young lady, auditioned and made the team, bringing the total to eight dancers. All of the members are academic successes, leaders in their communities, involved in sports, service groups, cheerleading, and just really great kids. These young people represent Caldwell and the Middleton areas all over the state and at National competitions as they travel and dance. You can be very proud of them!! If you have a special event, holiday party or service group luncheon and you need entertainment, En Fuego Dance Team is available to come and rock your event. Contact Tammy through Caldwell Perspective if you are interested.

Vallivue High School Sophomore Achieves Level 9 Michael Hensel Caldwell Perspective

Submitted Photos

At age fifteen, Madison Carson, a Sophomore at Vallivue High School, will be competing at level 9 as an optional gymnast. Level 10 is the highest level in the Junior Olympic program and will be the next achievement in this remarkable athlete’s development. She began gymnastics at age 9. As she has attained different skills she has advanced through the levels, starting competition through the Xcel program which is designed to get the athlete the feel for competition. Basically give them the confidence and competence to decide whether they would like to move up to the competition levels. After they achieve level 6, they can then showcase the skills at which they excel, choosing their own routines and music. Madisons’ favorite event is bars because she enjoys the challenge. She works out 5 days per week for 3 and a half hours per day at Advanced Gymnastics in Nampa. Madison will begin competition again in January. She hopes to achieve a scholarship and compete in college gymnastics after graduation. We, here at the Caldwell Perspective will continue to follow her coming competition season and report her progress and results. We are rooting for you Madison!

Outdoors Fishing Report

Robert Bassham, caught out fishing at Rotary Ponds The Rotary and Gun Club ponds were both planted with Rainbow trout in early November and the Rotary pond again the 1st of December. Try all the usual suspects, Powerbait or worms for the bait fisherman, small spinners and spoons work best for those of you that throw hardware and a nymph pattern for you fly fishers. Remember there is a smallmouth bass population, bluegill and other species available as well. You never know what might be coming to your hook, and it’s all in the name of good fun.

Recipe of the Month Michael Hensel Caldwell Perspective

Local Author Stephen Weston

Idaho Fish and Game stocked their last truckload of 300 Steelhead into the Boise River on November 24th, which was the third load of that size in November so there is still a bunch of catchable fish available. They will have disbursed from the stocking areas by the time of this reading so be prepared to find them up and down the river. Normal steelhead regulations and permits apply except barbless hooks are not required on the Boise River and limits are 3 fish per day and 9 fish in possession. The river is full of rainbows as it is stocked regularly, with both the lower and upper river stocked on December 1st. Water flows continue to run about normal at around 265 cfs. so access to fishing is excellent. As long as the weather holds, the normal hatches will continue, so try fishing the riffles into the deeper runs and pools. Bait anglers can catch fish drifting worms, bright colored salmon eggs or PowerBait while others are using small spoons or spinners to catch both steelhead and trout. Fly fishermen are using nymph patterns like a #12-16 Prince Nymphs to catch trout and whitefish. The steelhead will also come to bigger streamers, worms, shrimp, or spinners. Remember that down in our neck of the river there is a good smallmouth population and the occasional brown trout as well. The key is to get out and enjoy the goodweather; although the days are shorter the only reason for not catching fish is not going fishing!

Note from the Publisher: I just have to say it is such an honor to have this great local Author as a monthly columnist. Stephen’s book can be found at Rubaiyat Book Store, Downtown Caldwell.

me that day. I left with a new perspective. Hence, the name, Caldwell Perspective. This year I sent, Audie, our youngest of four children, to kindergarden. I was excited for him to begin school, but it left me lonely for the outside world. Although, at times I feel I’m not wearing those comfortable old boots, but rather breaking in a new pair (if any of you have broken a pair of boots in you can surely sympathize). Here I am. With plans to grow into a bi-weekly and then weekly publication. I hope as you

read through these pages you see the direction I choose to take this little paper. At this very moment the first publication of The Caldwell Perspective is due to hit the press in less than 24 hours. I am so excited to share this space with you. So, if and when you see me walking around downtown or in a business, please stop me. Let me know what you think of your newspaper. Remember, that this paper is solely funded by advertising. If you own a business, I encourage you to use this marketing

vehicle, delivering your message to every deliverable address in Caldwell. If you do not own a business (and even if you do) shop at the advertisers businesses. Use the coupons for those great bargains, meals and services, spend your dollars locally. A community is defined as a feeling of fellowship with others as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests and goals. We are an us. As the old cowboy quote says, “Happy trails”.

Place of Grace Because Jesus Did

There’s Still Good News

By Chantele Hensel Caldwell Perspective

By Jim and Sharon Porter, United Free Methodist Church

I don’t know about you, but I was pleased to learn a new local newspaper was coming to the Treasure Valley; I even got a little excited when I learned it was for and about our city of Caldwell. Its Publisher promises me that it’s all about good news. Good. We can use it. I’m a fan of good news. I’ve learned to be tolerant of the bad stuff. Sure, bad news is a part of life, but it seems we’ve become a society and culture that is choosing to linger in the bad news longer than what is good for us. From the recent election cycle and its constant barrage of negativity, to the immigration crisis (or opportunity, depending on what makes for bad news in your worldview), to the recent spread of Ebola into our country, to unemployment and under-employment, to the economy, there’s no doubt that these are great days to be a skeptic and cynic. It becomes more difficult with every passing year to remain optimistic. Then, every year at this same time I pause, exhale, and remember there’s still reason for optimism and hope. We have much to be thankful for. Our basic needs of life are

met; food, shelter, water, warmth, relationships. In spite of everything, our country is prosperous. We’re still safe, thanks to those who risk their lives while protecting ours. Industry is still moving into Caldwell, jobs and opportunity are being created for those who want to work. There are still open and generous hearts in our city that do good on a daily basis, and willingly and joyfully give of their time and abilities. There is reason for hope, because a very long time ago, into a world of skepticism, cynicism and division (in some ways like our own) a young mother delivered her first child—a baby boy—who arrived in a humanly impossible way, but whose arrival we’re still acknowledging and celebrating. Whether you believe or not, we can’t deny that He stands as the pivot point for all humankind. His is the one birthday that is universally celebrated, because the story of human destiny changed with His first breath. Be thankful. Be glad. Be curious about the Christ child. It’s Christmastime. We wish you peace.

Merry Christmas. May this Season bring many blessings to you and your family. e Staff at the Caldwell Perspective
