M.I.T.T. (Men In the Top Tier) awards were given to three men in our area by AAFV (Advocates Against Family Violence) during a luncheon at the Best Western Inn in Caldwell in June. According to AAFV, the M.I.T.T. award honors and acknowledges men that are “Top Tier” role models to children whose involvement with their organization positively affects the lives of children, families, and/ or embodies the mission of their agency. Canyon Council of Aging nominated Jessie Lumbreras, Production Coordinator of CCOA’s Energy Zone LLC, as a “Top Tier” role model saying that he is a great father, husband and co-worker. They described him as caring for those around him, that he is patient and kind to his clients of whom many are elderly and disabled. He goes “the extra mile” for them and is a dedicated employee that has an enormous caring heart. He is also a pastor on staff at the Christian Faith Center in Nampa where he brings messages to men to take interest to those around them. He is also involved in the children’s ministry. He understands the importance of being a good example and being involved in the lives of children. Also nominated was Parma Police Chief Albert Erickson. He has been a school resource officer and involved in the DARE (Drug

Awareness Resistance Education) program in the past. He has been in law enforcement for nearly 30 years. He has earned many accolades during his lifetime. Erickson has personally come to the aid of different people with extenuating circumstances at different times in their lives and is a tremendous role model who goes above and beyond the call of duty to the youth of his community and to others in need. He involves scouts and youth in projects within the community to serve others. He does many “everyday” things that go unnoticed by the public and deserves to be recognized. Ricardo Godina who works as an Employment & Training Specialist for Community Council of Idaho was nominated by the Council. He assists farmworkers by helping them improve their trade, educational and professional skills. He has worked with Latino youth, organizing a conference to expose them to careers in the health field, telling them that hard work can help them achieve their American Dream by investing time and effort into themselves. He is a strong motivational force for youth urging them to go the distance and works alongside them in many different projects to help them get to where they want to go. He believes in the youth that he works with hoping to get them to believe in themselves.

CPD Officers Support Officer Chad Register’s Family Officers in the Caldwell Police Department donated their leave time and planned fundraisers for their fellow officer, Chad Register, who was fighting the battle of his life against pancreatic cancer that spread to his liver, to assist with his time and money spent traveling all over the country for treatment. Unfortunately Register passed away on June 24th at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise where Caldwell officers stood watch to support their friend and his family when it looked like he wasn’t going to make it through the night. Police cars from Caldwell, Canyon County and Nampa Police escorted his body back to Caldwell where an officer stood watch over it until his funeral on June 30th, as is their tradition for fellow officers. Diane Register, Chad’s wife, who is a dispatcher at Nampa PD and former employee of Caldwell PD, said, “James ‘Chad’ Register was an eight year veteran of the Caldwell Police Department. During that time, he had served his community on patrol and worked for two years as an investigator for the County-City drug taskforce. Chad has raised four children, two of whom have joined the United States Navy, one who is in college and another one who still lives at home and is an impressive competitive gymnast.” On June 18th, High Desert Harley Davidson hosted an event called “Thrills and Chills” with all

proceeds donated to Chad and his family. An account at DL Evans Bank in the name of “Chad Register Fund” has been set up for donations. The planned fundraisers by both Caldwell and Nampa Police will go on as planned to help cover medical and funeral costs. According to Joey Hoadley, the police will raise funds by allowing their officers to grow goatees from July 1 - October 1, for $50.00 per month. He said, “Officers are jumping at the opportunity to both raise money for the Register family and also finally get the chance to have facial hair for a few months since we normally have to be clean shaven. We are also working on a golf tournament to be held at Purple Sage Golf Course on July 14th with proceeds going to the Registers.” If you are interested in creating a team, volunteering or sponsoring a hole for the tournament, contact Captain Devin Riley at (208) 455-4570. Our condolences and prayers go out to the Register family.

“Book It Forward! Idaho”

AAFV Honors Role Models

by Leora Summers, Editor

Don’t forget to donate your outgrown kid books! Last month we talked about “Book It Forward! Idaho,” a program that collects gently-used books, reconditions them and then gets them into the hands of the kids who have little to no access to books at home. This grass-roots organization connects with people primarily by word of mouth so “talk it up” and go through your home libraries and then “Pay Reading Forward” by bringing your books downtown to our office! Book It Forward! Idaho is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers from the community. They have the support and resources of both Idaho Voices for Children (www.idahovoices.org) and The Cabin (www.thecabinidaho.org). Other casual volunteers help clean and sort the books. Shown is one of the little libraries installed by Book It Forward! Idaho that is located in front of Wilson Elementary. You are invited to borrow or keep a book from the little library. Just drop by the school. The little library is located in the front of the school by the door by the school’s library.

Caldwell’s Broadside Harbor hosts 2016 GOODE Water Ski National Championships

Broadside Harbor’s 2 Lakes

Terry Winter, World Competitive Skier at Broadside Harbor

Barry Young (Tournament Director) and Debby Parsons (co-owner)

Whoever would have thought that a place in Caldwell, Idaho could host a national water ski competition? Well that is going to happen at the two-lake site at Broadside Harbor, in Caldwell between August 8th-13th, 2016. The site is located just off the Notus exit. Short of the world championship, this is the next biggest water ski championship event with just short of 600 contestants. Just prior to this National Championship, the 2016 Western Regional Water Ski Championships will be held there between July 20-23. This will be the first time that the state of Idaho has ever been chosen to host the U.S. Nationals and the first time the nationals have been held in the Western Region since 2007, when they were held in Arvin, California. GOODE Skis has been the title sponsor of the Nationals since 2000. This will be a traditional 3-event water ski competition that will include: slalom, trick skiing (with time limit), and ski jumping (for distance). To qualify for the Nationals, a skier must place in the top five at this year’s Regionals or last year’s Nationals.

Several of the top U.S. professional water skiers will compete in August. The U.S. is divided into 5 regions, with the Western Region being the largest both geographically (including 13 states) and in population. Broadside Harbor is comprised of 2 lakes where two competitors can run at the same time. The property was purchased by Debra and Don Parsons in the 1980’s with the development of the first lake in 1996 with the second one following in 1998. I visited with Barry Young (tournament director), who has been an integral part of the development of this site with the Parsons (owners) since 1992, at the Harbor. I was treated to a ride in the boat driven by Kristin Winter pulling Terry Winter, her husband. What a thrill! Of Terry, Young said, “About 15 people in the world can run as fast as Terry. He is one of the best skiers in the world and is a whole step above the rest. We will have guys of his caliber here.” Terry and his wife live in Star. These competitions are family events with skiers between age brackets as young as 10, and under up to an

age bracket that includes people in their 80s. Young’s own children, a daughter and a son, started water skiing around age 3, with his son winning a national championship for his age bracket at age 10. Don Parsons (co-owner) won the 2014 world trick championship for men age 55 and older. Tricks can include doing flips (back, front, side), 360s, 720s, and others within a determined time limit. Today, Debby and Barry, pretty much run the place and the tournaments together. This will be a wonderful event for our community to host and if you are looking for something to do during either of these competition dates, go check it out. It is free to the public and a fun event to watch. There will be vendors. Bring your sunscreen, and a blanket to sit on. For more information about both of these events, visit: www.broadsideharbor.com. Editors Driving Directions: take the Notus exit. Drive one mile towards Notus. Pass Stinker (on rt.), Go ½ mile. Left on Look Lane. Cross RR tracks. Left on Broadside Lane. You are there!

A SHOUT OUT to Steven Ball

John Sullivan of Caldwell went on a motorcycle ride on a Saturday in June and when he went to get his wallet out of his leather jacket when he was at the Harley Shop in Nampa, it was not to be found! He knew exactly what had happened. He had slid it into a spot that he thought was a pocket that was not and it slid through and out. At that point he figured that either if someone who wasn’t such an honest person or a

person that needed the cash more than he did found it, it would be lost forever or maybe, just maybe, if some honest person found it, they would turn it in. Low and behold, the next day, John received a call from a person from the Caldwell Police Department who told him that they had his wallet and to come down and get it. When he arrived, they handed him his wallet in a plastic bag with the information

by Leora Summers, Editor

about the person who turned it in. A man named Steven Ball from Caldwell found it near 10th and Linden in Caldwell and brought it down to the station. John called Steven to thank him and tried to give him a reward which Steven refused. Later John went to Steven’s house and gave him something anyway to show his appreciation. Contrary to popular opinion, there are honest people in this world.

Veteran’s Corner

Sponsored by the Caldwell Veterans Council The Caldwell Veterans Memorial Hall Project continues to make steady progress. Carpenters are completing the task of furring the upper level walls, electricians from IBEW Local 291 have installed the lighting and outlet boxes in the upper level and connected many of them with wiring. Concrete cutting specialists from ACDS, Inc. cut the new elevator lobby doors as well as widened two other exterior doorways. A.S.C. Concrete specialists have formed up and installed concrete to form the patio retention walls and the elevator structure foundation. The front area of the hall has been graded and prepared for concrete paving. In summary, the building is shaping up nicely and the visibility of our progress is beginning to show. We are getting closer to achieving our goal to provide benefits to veterans and their families with every task we complete. At last count, we have put in over 19,000 hours of volunteer time.

Stefani Chambers’ War Pigeons Return Home

by Leora Summers, Editor

By Leora Summers

Remember last month when Stefani Chambers was one of Idaho’s winners for the National History Day competition? She along with her mother took her “War Pigeon” exhibit to Washington D.C. to compete on the national level. According to her mom, Irma Chambers, though Stefani didn’t earn any medals, her exhibit she was THE NUMBER ONE NHD (National History Day) exhibit at the American Museum of History. The museum curators kept coming to her exhibit and talking to her and sharing information about relics and exhibits they had archived in air tight and temperature controlled vaults that were WWII pigeon related. Word spread throughout the museum. Employees made a point to come and see it and talk to Stefani about it, they were all really impressed with the museum quality of her display. Irma went on to say, “What was even more impressive to me was how the general public reacted to her exhibit. There are hundreds and hundreds of people walking by trying to get everything the museum has to offer and people were walking right by the other exhibits on display from other states but would pause when they saw Stefani’s title, “WAR PIGEONS,” and their curiosity got the best

of them and they would stop in front of it and ask her questions. I am serious when I say that even the other kids who had their exhibits on display made it a point to come and see for themselves the WAR PIGEON exhibit EVERYONE was talking about. One girl came and said, ‘my dad told me I had to come and see your exhibit because my grandpa used to raise pigeons and it made him nostalgic to see your exhibit and he really wanted me to see it.’” There were a lot of firsts for Stefani on this trip: first plane ride, first time on the east coast, first time sleeping in a dorm, first time on a metro system and many others. She made many friends from around the country. Due to time conflicts with her program, she was unable to do either the White House tour or visit the Capitol Building. She did take in the Holocaust tour and it was an experience that she will never forget. She saw the Lincoln Memorial, the Reflection Pool, the WWII Monument, the Washington Memorial, the Smithsonian Castle, the archives, the Natural Museum of History and the American Museum of History (where she showed her exhibit). What a fantastic opportunity her War Pigeon exhibit afforded her. Congratulations to Stefani for her accomplishment and to public education and the Caldwell School District for its part in helping make this happen.

Henbergs – Where are they now?

When Marv Henberg retired as president of the College of Idaho, he and wife Laurie moved to their vacation home in Sun River, Oregon and immediately began to enjoy their new adventure together, by going on a 25 day cruise up the Danube, Rhine and Main Rivers in Europe. When they returned, they downsized their belongings to fit into their now much smaller abode, dropping many items off at the Second Tern, an upper-scale second-hand shop, in Sun River. Laurie connected with the C of I’s men’s soccer coach’s mother who volunteered there and found a new niche for herself, also volunteering there. The store’s proceeds go to Sun River’s “Nature Center” and Marv joined in and busied himself as a new member of the Nature Center’s fundraising committee. The proceeds from the Second Tern raised $375,000 last year for the Nature Center. Laurie then joined the Sun River Rotary Club and Sun River’s P.E.O. Chapter FJ. Sam (my husband) and I recently returned from visiting them and while there, attended Laurie’s Rotary Club fundraiser, where she won 50 bottles of wine (first prize) in their wine raffle and Marv won 2 bottles of fine single malt Scotch. We must have been their “good luck charms.” Before the Henbergs left Caldwell,

by Leora Summers, Editor

Marv made a friend, D.B. Fitzpatrick from Boise (the head of the Patagonia Conservation Trust), and last fall following his retirement, he was elected to be on that board. So Marv, as a board member, and Laurie made a visit to Argentina this past year to learn more about it and to look at properties the trust had already obtained. The purpose of that board is to establish conservation easements on lands in Patagonia (Argentina) and to get the Argentinians to recognize the easements in order to maintain their natural state and to prohibit development on them. The Henbergs visited Spain last month. They have really taken to their new freedom, but have incorporated their talents through their interests and commitments to organizations within their new community. Currently Marv is writing a book about the Great Plains, a place where grew up which has always held a fascination for him. He and Laurie go on walks, ride bikes and are beginning to enjoy their latest interest-flat water kayaking. Of the Sun River/Bend area Marv said, “The people in this area have lots of fun. There is lots to do, but still, there is no place friendlier than the people of Caldwell.”

Three Men Connected through Education and Time

by Leora Summers, Editor

By Leora Summers


Chuck Randolph looks skeptically at the wine (from 10 years earlier) being used to make the toast as Darrel and Tim raise their glasses.

On June 11th, three good men, three educators and three friends celebrated milestone birthdays they will have reached together by the end of this year. Darrel Deide-80, Chuck Randolph-70, and Tim Rosandick-60, with each entering a new decade in their lives. They have had intertwined experiences not only through working together in later years but also much earlier experiences through their educational process. Former Superintendent Jerry Evans was also present, who was the superintendent of the Caldwell School District when Darrel Deide was the high school principal and Chuck Randolph was a teacher at the high school. Earlier, Tim Rosandick had been one of Chuck’s students when Chuck taught in the Junior High School. In later years, Darrel was the superintendent and Chuck was the assistant superintendent while Tim was a principal in the District. One favorite story told was that Chuck Randolph, during the time he was Rosandick’s teacher, had a penchant for showing films on some Fridays. On one particular Friday, Tim,

upon seeing the reels of film, asked Mr. Randolph if he could set up the big projector and let him run the movie. It was a tworeeled film, so a really long one, and it was about the digging of the Panama Canal. The next time Mr. Randolph had the projector set up, Tim once again asked if he could set up the film. Upon setting it up, he discovered that it was the same one they had seen the last time, the one about the digging of the Panama Canal! He told Mr. Randolph that they had already seen that one, to which Mr. Randolph replied, “Well then just run it backwards and we can watch them fill it back up!” Ten years earlier, these three men celebrated their 50, 60, and 70 year milestone birthdays together and Darrel Deide brought this huge bottle of wine and said they would open it up in ten years and toast each other for their next milestone birthdays. This celebration was that milestone mark and they toasted to their birthdays, hoping the wine would still be good, only to find that it didn’t age as well as they had! So the consensus was that 10 years ago Darrel should have brought Scotch! It gets better with age.

“A Right To Work”



What’s Left of What’s Right? “Something’s wrong and we all know we are in a condition of moral decline. Since 2009, both Canyon County Sheriffs have denied the truth in public news media, later to be confirmed, that the last 10 years provided unfit jail conditions. Resulting in 3 failed bonds for expansion and the death of a BSU student in custody April 2015 with a settlement in November 2015. We now have an investigation of the Sheriff that creates ethical uncertainty about the integrity of this individual and the delayed response from the Idaho criminal justice system that appears to be protecting one of its own.

Why does the Sheriff not release the evidence to the media? Failed Probation System. What caused this failure? Illegal Alien immigration. HOW? Your grandparents, uncles, aunts, dads, moms, and citizens of skill are no longer owning, hiring or mentoring the young American legal citizen to create skills in construction, painting, landscaping, and other entry level employment opportunities. Each has been replaced with illegal employees who committed felonies by crossing into a nation without enforceable borders by federal, state, county, city agencies from failed enforceable laws for legal citizen employment hiring.


To create a Canyon County with borders and enforce employment laws, find and transfer theses felons to deportation. This will result in the decreased drug, theft, and all other lawlessness harm and expense to our community. This results in an efficient and reduced property tax expense for unnecessary services for these illegal alien felons.

Counting Butterflies for Science

by Billie Farley, Outreach Specialist


Caldwell Class of 1947

Butterfly Exhibit 2

Paul Castrovillo, Ph.D., Entomologist

The 26th Annual Boise Front 4th of July Butterfly Count will be held on Sunday, July 10th, weather permitting. Participants will gather in the parking lot at 17th and State Marketplace (across the street from the Albertsons parking lot at 16th and State) at 8:30am for cinnamon rolls and OJ. Participants will organize for carpooling and selection of informational compilers for each count site. This all-day field trip will follow the traditional butterfly-census route, stopping at Military Reserve, two spots along Bogus Basin Road, the Bogus Basin Chairlift Area for lunch and finish up on Mores Mountain. Participants can expect to return to Boise after 6 p.m. What will you see? Based on past years, participants typically see about 40-45 butterfly species over the course of the day (that’s nearly one-third of the butterfly species found in Idaho). When the weather has been not-sogood, species observed have been reduced to about 30, but during 2012, 2013 and 2014, all previous records were broken with the observation of 57 species!

Paul Castrovillo, Ph.D., Entomologist, has put together this yearly event since its inception in 1990. In preparation for the event, Paul will hold a Butterfly ID workshop the day before the count. Paul describes the workshop as “a crash course on some of the butterflies we typically see on the count or a chance to brush up your ID skills.” The ID session will be held at 11:45am-2:30pm, Saturday, July 9th, as part of the Orma J. Smith Museum of Natural History monthly work day in the basement of Boone Hall on the campus of The College of Idaho. There is no charge to attend the workshop. Bring a brown bag lunch for the workshop. Paul also notes, “You don’t have to come to the ID session to attend the count. And you don’t have to attend the count to come to the ID session. You are welcome at either or both.” Paul has this advice for the field trip on Sunday, July 10th: “Prepare for a day of hiking bring plenty of fluid, sunscreen and your lunch. If you have a butterfly net it is handy - but not a must. A $4.00 registration fee will

be collected from each person $3.00 of that goes to NABA (North American Butterfly Association) who compile and publish the results of all the annual butterfly counts conducted throughout Canada, the US and Mexico and the rest is dispersed to folks who drive during the count and have to pay to park at the Mores Mountain location. If you think you know how to identify butterflies or some butterflies you are valuable to us. If you don’t know the identities of local butterflies, but would like to learn a few, this is the place for you. People who have the knowledge are eager to share and I will have some ID booklets available for your use to aid in your learning. If you want to spend a day out in Nature and the fresh air (and hopefully some sun) we always need extra eyes to find butterflies and point them out to the folks doing the identification.” If you plan to attend, please contact Paul Castrovillo, ahead of time (so he will know how many cinnamon rolls to bring!). For more information, e-mail Paul at paul. castrovillo@isda.idaho.gov or call and leave a message at 332-8627.

Paramedic Update: Hot Topic by Steve Blados, Caldwell Paramedic

Scorching summer temperatures have arrived, seemingly even earlier than usual. With temperatures already in the 90’s, I figured I’d write about a “hot” topic and share a little information with you about burns. Every year in the United States, approximately 486,000 people are treated at a hospital for burns. In the Treasure Valley, the most severe of these are first treated at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in Boise, Idaho. If the patient meets certain criteria, they may be transported to one of the 128 verified burn centers in the United States. The closest ones to us are the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City, and the Oregon Burn Center in Portland. Everyone seems to think of fire when they think of burn injuries. However, steam, radiation, electricity and chemicals may also cause burns. Burns are typically classified by degree. Your skin is made up of three distinct layers, the epidermis, the dermis, and the fat layer (subcutaneous). A first-degree burn is the most shallow and only involves the top layer of the skin, evidenced by redness. Sunburn is a first-degree burn. A second-degree burn involves the epidermis

and the dermis (top two layers) of the skin, and is probably the most painful. Along with redness, blisters are often present and may ooze clear fluid. A third degree burn involves all three layers of the skin, and is the most severe. Even though they may not be as painful (nerve endings have been destroyed), these burns may be life threatening. If you have a second or third degree burn, please seek medical attention! The first thing to do when you have a burn is to stop the burning process. Typically, this involves cool water. Ice is not recommended. If you have a first-degree burn, you may consider over the counter remedies and over the counter analgesics. If you have a second or third degree burn, cover the area with a dry bandage and seek medical attention. Enjoy your summer, especially the July 4th Celebrations in Canyon County. Be careful, and always remember, Canyon County Paramedics and our Fire Department partners are only a phone call away should you need us! Steve Blados is the Division Chief of Training with Canyon County Paramedics. He may be reached for questions or comments at sblados@ccparamedics. com.

During the June 6th City Council meeting Officer Chad Ivie and Corporal Adam Matthews were honored for “going above and beyond the call of duty” as police officers. On May 7th they responded to a call for an 11 month-old boy who was choking. When they arrived, they found that the mother couldn’t go to the hospital with her child in the ambulance because she had two other children at home. When she asked them if they could go to the hospital to be with her baby until she could get there, they did not hesitate. While at the hospital, Officer Ivie and Corporal Matthews comforted and looked after her little boy. They changed diapers and held him until his mama was able to situate the kids at home and get to the hospital to be with him. She greatly relieved and felt better knowing that her little boy was in good hands until she could get there. Regarding this honor, Officer Ivie humbly responded that this wasn’t anything that anyone of their guys (other Caldwell Police L to R: Officer Chad officers) wouldn’t have done and that he and Matthews just These are our Peace Officers. “I walk amongst them every day,” said Officer Ivie. Ivie and Corporal Adam happened to be the guys on call that night. He said, “I walk amongst Mathews at City Council Front Row L to R: James Cox, Ryan Bendawald, Corporal Ed Adams, Rod Hutton them every day.” Of Mathews, he said, “I can’t say enough about Meeting. Back Row, L to R: Jared Hoeksema, Chad Ivie, Corporal Adam Matthews, Sergeant Corporal Mathews, I learn something new from him every day.” Chad Sloan, Jonathon Hoadley, Lieutenant Joey Hoadley, Chief Frank Wyant.

Dan Pugmire Recognized by CPD

Veteran Dan Pugmire was recognized during the June 6th City Council meeting for his

actions recently that saved a fellow veteran’s life. Dan has been a huge impetus in the creation of the Idaho Veterans Garden located in Caldwell. The Garden has become a source of comfort and peace for many area veterans, a place to reflect, but sometimes with reflection comes pain, and sometimes through pain comes healing. Area Veterans have come to know Dan as someone they can talk to and who deeply understands their pain. One day this May, he received a call from a man who was despondent and at the Garden. Dan immediately went to him to be a listening ear and found the fellow next to a planter dedicated to one of his friends who recently ended his own life with plans and means to end his. Dan thwarted those plans and the man was taken to the hospital and given the care

by Leora Summers, Editor

he needed for both his injuries and mental state. That fellow was reaching out for help and Dan was there for him in his time of need. Lt. Joey Hoadley commended Dan saying, “On behalf of the Caldwell Police Department, I would like to formally recognize you for your heroic actions which saved the life of a fellow veteran. Whether saving a life on a battlefield or back here at home, your efforts are appreciated. Suicide by our country’s war veterans is an epidemic and the steps you’ve taken to recognize their service and give them a place of peace through the Veteran’s Memorial Garden are exemplary. Once again, thank you for both your service as a soldier and your efforts as a member of our great community. We are proud to call you one of our own.”

Caldwell Police Officer Saves Woman’s Life! At approximately 1:27 p.m. on May 22nd, Officer Phillips responded to a residence in the

500 block of Cottonwood for an EMS assist call. Dispatch advised of a male who had called 911 and stated his wife had died and to “hurry.” Officer Phillips arrived on scene within 4 minutes and met the woman’s distressed husband at the front door. After quickly assessing the situation and gathering basic medical information, Officer Phillips determined the woman was not breathing and had no pulse. He immediately started CPR and continued giving chest compressions even after the arrival of paramedics. Once additional resources arrived on scene, the woman was turned over to medical personnel at the scene. By the time paramedics had arrived at the hospital with the female, she was conscious and talking. Officer Chad Ivie and I accompanied the woman’s distraught husband to the hospital where we promised to all share a meal together once his wife

recovered. The woman, Cheryl Hagan, was released from the hospital approximately 2 weeks later and has returned home. Once she had reunited with her husband, Jim Hagan, Caldwell Police Officers followed through with their promise on a meal together. The Caldwell Pizza Hut graciously donated pizzas to be delivered to the home where myself, Officer Ivie, Officer Phillips and Chief Wyant had to opportunity to meet and talk to Cheryl for the first time since the initial call. There is no doubt that Officer Eric Phillips’ actions on May 22, 2016, not only saved the life of this woman but also gave her husband his wife back to enjoy for many more years. He was nominated for a Life Saving Award which he will receive at the annual Caldwell Police awards banquet in December. Jim and Cheryl Hagan have promised they will be in attendance.

Officers Honored at City Council Meeting

The Story Behind The National Anthem

by Michael Hensel

I have had the privilege of hearing the story behind our national anthem “The Star Spangled Banner” as told by a couple of prominent speakers. I believe that anyone who hears the story will once again be proud to stand and salute the flag the next time they hear this impressive song! Francis Scott Key was a Washington lawyer sent to negotiate the release of American prisoners during the War of 1812. This was only a couple of weeks after the British victory in Washington DC that resulted in the burning of the capital building and the White House, and the ransacking of many other government buildings. The loss of the capital had a demoralizing effect on the American people and was a blow to the young republics chances of maintaining our independence from Britain. The British forces intended to increase their advantage by sailing to Baltimore and taking it as well. Standing between the British and Baltimore was Fort McHenry and the 1000 soldiers therein. The British opened up a torrent of gunfire from a number of ships in the Chesapeake Bay the “rockets red glare,” and “the bombs bursting in air” were accurate depictions of the scene during those fateful 25 hours of constant bombardment September 13 and 14, 1814. The flag flying through the battle was a sign of the strength and courage of the soldiers defending the fort against the superior forces of the British Navy and also defending the young nation itself. When “the dawns early light” showed the flag still flying and the fort still standing, the British reembarked their assault force and sailed from the bay in humiliation. The young nation was saved and a lasting peace was negotiated that lives to this day. Francis Scott Key committed his memories to the lyrics of a song and sent them to his brother in law who immediately published them as “The Defense of Fort McHenry.” The song became a hit and was soon renamed “The Star Spangled Banner.” The song not only depicts an incredible defensive victory in an under-appreciated war that secured our independence, it symbolizes all our fighting men and women and the sacrifices they have made throughout history. So, the next time you hear those words “Oh say can you see,” stand, remove your hat and salute the flag, honor those who have given you the freedom you enjoy!

Zions Bank Gives Caldwell Home Makeover A local senior citizen continues to live at home with independence and dignity thanks to Zions Bank volunteers. The Caldwell home of Norita Smith, 87, received a makeover from local Zions Bank employees who provided a fresh coat of paint and spruced up her landscaping. In addition to painting, Zions employees provide yard clean-up, pruning, mowing, planting and minor repairs as needed by homeowners. The cost for all paint and supplies is contributed by Zions Bank. During this year’s Paint-a-thon, Zions’ employees “brushed up” on providing community service by helping low-income elderly, disabled and veteran homeowners. The average age of this year’s home owner is 77, with an average monthly income of $1,803. Projects completed during the annual weeklong event were selected with the assistance of nominations from the public, state housing agencies, community organizations and local churches. “Every year, we enjoy rolling up our sleeves and helping our neighbors in need like Norita spruce up their homes and yards,” said Zions Bank’s Caldwell Financial Center manager and Paint-a-Thon team captain Shauna Hoge. “Not only is the project rewarding for both our employee volunteers and for our homeowners, but it aligns with Zions Bank’s mission to create value in our communities.” Idaho’s population is aging faster than the nation’s,

SIBA Presents Cranes, Planes, Trains & Automobiles: Birding in China

submitted photo and Article

Steve Bouffard will present a program about birding in China to the SIBA (Southwestern Idaho Birders Association) on July 14 at 7PM in the visitor’s center of Deer Flat NWR. The public is always welcome. Steve says, “I spent time traveling and birding in China in December 2015 to focus on wintering cranes, especially black-necked cranes. It was a small custom tour that started with cultural events and birding in Beijing. Then off to Cap Hai Nature Reserve for 2 days for black-necked cranes and 2 days at Poyang Lake Nature Reserve for more cranes and water birds. Several days were Steve Bouffard spent in the Wuyuan area, which has a high number of local endemics. We found several rare species. Our final two days were near Hangzhou, than we flew out of Shanghai. We saw about 180 species. We’re hoping to get another trip together for fall 2017 to focus on species wintering on the Chinese coast.” Steve is retired after 30 plus years as a refuge manager and biologist with the US Fish and Wildlife Service. He is now the curator of birds for the Orma J. Smith Museum of Natural History at the College of Idaho. He also leads bird trips for visually impaired participants.

Press Release

according to recent estimates by the U.S. Census Bureau. The number of Idahoans age 65 and older increased by almost 19 percent from 2010 to 2014 compared with 14.2 percent for the nation overall. Nearly 90 percent of people over age 65 want to stay in their home for as long as possible, and 80 percent believe their current residence is where they will always live, according to the AARP Public Policy Institute. Zions Bank is committed to helping senior citizens remain in their homes as long as possible, maintaining their independence, dignity and health. Nearly 90 percent of people over age 65 want to stay in their home for as long as possible, and 80 percent believe their current residence is where they will always live, according to the AARP Public Policy Institute. Launched in 1991, Zions Bank’s Paint-a-Thon began as a volunteer project for a dozen homes along Utah’s Wasatch Front. Over the past 26 years, Zions Bank employees have put aside summer pastimes for a week each year — volunteering in the evenings after work and on Saturday — to paint 1,090 homes throughout Idaho and Utah. Not counting the dollar value of volunteer hours through the years, the bank has donated more than $1 million toward beautifying homes in the two states.

Nickels and Dimes The last 2 months we’ve attempted to look into the future at a changing world. My basic conclusion is that this change is inevitable and we need to consider helping ourselves and our future generations by building “generational wealth.” This is wealth that not only allows us to live comfortably but leaves enough to at least start the next generation (or two) on the right path. In order to accomplish this we need to find trusted investment advisors and heed their advice. Sounds simple enough, but is fraught with potential landmines, ask anyone that trusted their money to Bernie Madoff! That said, the vast majority of advisors are trustworthy professionals and if you heed the old adage “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!” you should be fine. Along these lines, find yourself a mentor. Even if you believe you have an excellent track record, a good eye for

sound investments, and great instincts, it never hurts to listen to advice from another person with the same qualities. Warren Buffett credits his success to the strong guidance he received from his mentor, Benjamin Graham. You can’t be hurt by having a sounding board, even if they talk you out of your next great investment plan and it turns out it would have been profitable – you both learned a valuable lesson and the next opportunity will arrive given enough time. So join or start an investment club or even join a service club and take advantage of your new colleagues. Finally, talk to a good estate attorney and set up the necessary trust to help you achieve these goals. The advantages include reducing estate and gift taxes, distributing assets to your heirs efficiently without probate, putting conditions on how and when your assets are distributed, and better protecting your assets from creditors and lawsuits. But most importantly–start now!

Plaza Planning Takes Next Big Step

On Thursday June 16th, local leaders joined city officials at the Caldwell Police Department Community Room to participate with Indian Creek Plaza’s architectural design firm finalist, GGLO, in a “Plaza Steering Committee Charrette.” A charrette is a planning session where strategic partners collaborate on a vision for development and offers designers a unique advantage of obtaining immediate feedback. City Councilmen Chris Allgood and Chuck Stadick joined partners in the community and a few city employees to review GGLO’s urban plaza vision for Caldwell, discuss characteristics and elements of signature urban plazas, and participate in a brainstorming and design activity. “Actually seeing the plaza ‘on paper’ is bringing the project to light more and more,” said Reagan Rossi, Associate Athletic Director of the College of Idaho and member of the Indian Creek Plaza Committee, “This plaza will be a tremendous resource to the College of Idaho family and the entire community of Caldwell.” During the design charrette, the “Plaza Steering Committee” was broken into four groups who

Not only did Shirley hold leadership positions; President of the Ladies Professional Golf Association of America (1964) and President of the Western LPGA (1976), she also appeared on television as a sportscaster for the Hughes Sports Network (1972-74) and for B.B.C. in Canada (1977). In 2014, Shirley Ruth Englehorn was inducted into the Rolex Hall of Fame and was honored along with Donna White during an induction celebration by the LPGA Teaching and Club Professionals on October 6, 2015, at the La Cantera Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas. Shirley’s brother, Wayne Englehorn, still lives in Caldwell and is proud to call Shirley his sister.

Remember that great little gal golfer that graduated from Caldwell High School, way back when in 1959, that won many an amateur golf tournament? At age 15, she was the youngest player ever to receive the Dorothy Pease Trophy (Trans-Miss). At age 18, Shirley moved to California to hone her golf skills to prepare herself for the LPGA LPGA (Ladies’ Professional Golf Association) tour. She turned professional in 1962 and became a well-known professional golfer, winning many tours, 11 in fact, plus one other. Her first professional win was at age 21, after recovering from an equestrian accident. What a come-back that was and a credit to her hard work and dedication to the game she loved. In 1965 she suffered injuries in an auto accident and again came back strong. In 1968 she received a “Ben Hogan” award by Shirley Englehorn the American Golf Writers Association of America in honor of 1963, age 22 her successful comebacks from her 2 sets of injuries. Her career from Sports Illustrated spanned 20 years. After becoming a golf instructor, in 1978 she won the LPGA Teacher of the Year Award. She was also recognized by Golf Digest as one of the six top teachers in the U.S. She last appeared in the LPGA scene in 1979 when she retired. The Shirley Englehorn School of Golf was established in 1977. Shirley has shared her talents, giving hundreds of exhibitions in this country and in many other parts of the world. These days she lives in Colorado Springs and spends most of her time teaching with the same enthusiasm and dedication that made her the top golf professional that she was in her prime.

CALDWELL’S GREAT BANK ROBBERY OF 1957 In its early history, Caldwell knew crime: the theft of horses along the Oregon Trail which led to the Ward Massacre, Governor Frank Steunenberg’s 1905 assassination by a bomb blast at 16th and Dearborn, Prohibition bootlegging at 15th and Fillmore, as well as the usual list of petty offenses. Armed robbery was, however, relatively rare. Bank robbery as more rare yet. After all, Bonnie and Clyde never found Idaho. Butch Cassidy and his “Hole in the Wall Gang” didn’t venture west of Montpelier, Idaho. That robbery was in 1896, 13 years after Caldwell’s founding.

Caldwell’s turn at bank robbery came on Monday, May 13, 1957. It occurred just 15 minutes before the 3 p.m. closing time. The Idaho First National Bank, located at the corner of 7th and Main (now home of the Bird Stop), was the target. It being daylight on a business day with the Caldwell Police Department within sight (it was located on 7th St. between Cleveland and Blaine), a robbery seemed most unlikely. A subject, described as a 25 to 30-year-old male, 5 feet 10 inches tall, blonde hair, blue eyes This was the headline new in The News-Tribune, and his left arm May 14, 1957 edition.

He approached a bank teller, handed her a note that demanded her $5s, $10s, and $20s. The robber indicated that he had a gun concealed in his sling. The FBI agent who helped in the investigation commented that the subject was “calm and unhurried.” The armed man left the bank by the 7th Street door. He took with him $3,525 (in 1957 dollars) of Caldwellites’ money. Earlier, a Boise gas station and a grocery store had been relieved of $155 and $400 in like fashion. Caldwell police responded in minutes, but Visit us at the farm, by phone or at the Caldwell Farmers Mkt. the robber, after stepping onto the 7th Street just vanished. There was no getaway 14623 Galloway Rd., Caldwell ~ 454-0229 sidewalk, car, no foot chase, and no witness sightings— he was simply gone. Before the coming of I-84, with U.S. Highway 30 running through the city, police roadblocks were common. Traffic was stopped before the College of Idaho to the east end and beyond the steel bridge across the Boise River to the west. Though

There he had undertaken a more ambitious Hunts for Clues Photo from task of emptying the bank’s safety The News Tribune, May 14, 1957 deposit boxes. Today, the entry and exit doors used by the robber are still in place. The Bird Stop has found a new use for the old bank’s marble deposit desk, which still line the 7th Street interior wall. The painted metal ceiling beams and cornices still look much the same way they did in 1957. The major change to building’s ground floor is that the Bird Stop now serves food and drinks in the two safes. Missing are the ornate metal teller’s cages and, of course, the $3,525.

“Not Important...but possibly of interest” It doesn’t seem like forty years. It was about noon on Saturday, June 5, 1976, when I heard a news bulletin that the Teton Dam in eastern Idaho had collapsed as the reservoir was being filled for the first time. By evening, I was on my way to the scene with other members of my National Guard unit. We stopped at a café in Arco just after midnight. We talked to a husband and wife from Sugar City, one of the areas hardest hit by the flood. They had been in Boise when the dam broke. Their kids had stayed behind in Sugar City. The flood had torn down the phone lines. They didn’t know if their family was safe or. . . . We pulled into Rexburg at dawn. The emergency effort was based at Ricks College on the hill above the city. Much of the town was a wreck. At one downtown intersection there was

a huge pile of logs, cars and other debris mixed with the bodies of a number of Hereford cattle. In those days Boise Cascade Corp. was in the home construction business and one of their TV ads claimed their houses were “built tight, like a ship.” The ads didn’t lie. One of those houses has been carried several miles from its foundation and came to rest near the Rexburg National Guard Armory. Later in the day we flew over the broken dam in a Huey helicopter. Then we headed for Sugar City, the first town hit by the wall of water. Many of the buildings had disappeared, only the foundations remaining. The wave of water was so powerful it pushed sections of the railroad track that ran through the area hundreds of yards out of line. It even washed coffins out of the ground in cemeteries. The water scrubbed the land clean between Sugar City and Rexburg. We spotted some animal tracks from the air. The tracks wandered around in no

particular direction. Eventually we found the source. Lying on its side in the mud was a horse. It appeared to be dead but as the helicopter passed overhead, it raised its head for a moment and looked at us. We wanted to land and put the animal out of its misery but it was too muddy. The Teton Dam collapse caused more than a billion dollars in damage (about eight billion in today’s dollars). But despite the absolute devastation, only twelve people died, and several of those deaths were due to heart attacks. The area residents had little more than an hour to get to high ground. This was before cell phones, home computers and texting. I have always believed the death count was low because a majority of the people in the valley were Mormon (I’m not) and the community was tightly knit. When the word came down that the wall of water was coming, everyone took a moment to make sure everyone got the word and received help if needed. Has it really been forty years?

Wi t h the onset of July, we are in the midst of some of the best bass and top water fishing that Idaho brings. You have to know when and where though. While you may catch fish during any portion of the day, the length of time in between each fish will greatly depend on what you are fishing for and how you are fishing for the given fish. Bass are a very aggressive fish and play the predator role in most of our rivers and lakes. Spinners with dark bodies tend to work the best whether you are boat or shore fishing. Early morning (6am-8am) and times just prior to twilight are often the most eventful times for bass fishing. If you are fishing later in the morning or early afternoon, you are going to need to have more patience as well as fish in the deeper waters. During these times, rubber worms and tube bait are especially popular. Also, July 19th is a full moon and depending on the weather, could make for some outstanding top water fishing for bass. This means frog and plugs can be very effective. As the sun

starts to become more prevalent, shade becomes the best place to fish. For those fly fisherman, the later year means slack water areas. Back-eddies created by the current, rocks and logs become a haven for resting fish. Top water flies will be a good choice as will streamers. Wet flies can be used effectively as there will be a great deal of hatching occurring throughout the summer. Heat will play a large factor in fly fishing. The warmer the water is, the deeper the fish will tend to reside. For fly fishing, I tend to lean more towards the end of the day for my trips however just as much lucky is had during the early hours. It all depends on what you are comfortable with. Whatever you do and wherever you decide to go, take plenty of water and sunscreen with you. Sun reflecting off the water can burn you just a quick as the sun itself. As the temperatures rise, so does the risk of exposure. Water is vital to staying cool and staying hydrated. Do not forget these things when you head out. As always, have fun and do not forget to wet that line.

LOCAL DIRT-Squash Bugs

Welcome to summer and because of our very nice and early prolonged spring your garden is probably very far advanced. I was asked to talk about garden pests in this column, more specifically squash bugs and how to deal with them. Well this paper may not be big enough to accomplish that. The internet world is full of information on just about every garden pest known and how to treat. There are chemical methods which are beneficial, but create a roller coaster ride of extremes especially if the directions are not followed completely. Most think a little more is better. There are organic treatments which can be very costly and ineffective which leads to frustration, followed by giving up. There are natural treatments or biological methods that are very beneficial, but locating praying mantises or lady bugs is somewhat difficult although more and more local and Independent Garden Centers (IGC) are carrying such supplies. Local IGC’s are also better at knowing and having the products that tend to work in your climate zone.

What is a squash bug and where do they come from? It is a major pest in our area. It is a flat ovate looking bug of various colors. The larger bugs overwinter in debris left lying on the ground from the season’s dead plant material. It will eat just about any plant above ground, but loves the bigger and lower leaves of squash, watermelons, pumpkins, etc. They start in early spring and eat all summer long. The adults lay eggs constantly on the underside of foliage and from there, turn into nymphs and adults all along, piercing the plants and sucking the life out of them. Plants can survive on a small infestation, so control early. Chemicals like Pyrethrin, which is an organic chemistry, will kill a number of bugs (read the labels), but you almost have to make direct contact for best results. If you get the eggs or nymphs before they get too big and mobile, you will have better control, but that means constant observation. If you had squash bugs last year and you plant similar plants this year, you’re likely going to have squash bugs this year.

But I have some ideas that will help eliminate the problem. At the end of your season completely clean out your garden debris and rototill your garden to eliminate a place for many bugs to overwinter. This also makes starting your garden a little easier in the spring. Or apply straw mulch over your garden area giving a protective area for predatory bugs on a biological level of treatment. Transplanting a much larger, more vigorous plant will tolerate more damage rather than a seeding. Rotate your crops so you’re not continually giving the bugs a safe harbor. Or better yet, get with your neighbors and split up who grows what and share your produce. This gets more eyes on control. People who live close to each other will have more success controlling their pests if their control methods are consistent with each other than if some of them have some and others have none or different methods. Until next time, Pat

About 200 participants and over 40 survivors attended the June 24th “Relay For Life” event held at the Caldwell High School track. Survivors took the first lap around the track. The relayers had fun throughout the night with team egg and balloon toss games and novelty trots around the track. When it became dark, a candlelight ceremony accompanied the reading of names of loved ones lost to cancer as participants walked together around the track. Dutch Brothers donated all sales that night back to the Relay. The Relay organizers anticipate coming very close to their goal of $55,000 and thank participants and sponsors.

Deerflat Free Methodist Church Turns 108 Years Old!

by Chantele Hensel, Publisher

Deerflat Church in 1960

In 1906, a group of families broke ground on Beet Road to build a church. They met at the old Huston Elementary School to worship lead by Pastor Paul Smith, a blacksmith from Caldwell. In 1908, the first Deerflat church was built. The land was donated to the church by the Dotson Family and when it opened it was debt-free. In 1998, the current worship center which seats 1,100 people, lobby and offices were finished. As a strong church family, the debt from that expansion was paid off in 2004.

In 2012, Pastor Dave McGarrah became pastor and the church family has continued to steadily grow. A third expansion is being fine-tuned to add 23,000 sq. ft. for a new children’s ministry room, a larger check-in and pick-up area, an enlarged lobby, a new kitchen, pantry, restrooms and a storage area. The addition will bring debt and the goal is to become debt-free once again by 2020. A vote among the attendees will be held on July 10th for final approval.

Boise Rescue Mission-A New Life for Flora

by Leora Summers

F l o r a didn’t have a chance for a good life right from the get-go, but she is a survivor after many Flora years of abuse of all types in nature. The abuse by her father began at age 3. She was introduced to alcohol by age 4, and later was abused by her mother’s boyfriends. She thought everybody’s lives were like hers. She didn’t know anything different. At age 14, she had a 26 year old boyfriend and when she was barely 15, she had a baby boy which she gave up for adoption 7 months later. She married at age 16 and divorced at age 19. Her life was caught in a cycle of domestic abuse and violence thereafter. She married again in 1985 and again due to domestic violence and alcohol, that marriage didn’t last either. They separated in 1989 and have had no contact with each other since then. The domestic violence was the hardest part of her life to live through she told the group at the Caldwell Chamber luncheon on May 10th. Alcohol remained a problem, but also a solution to her situation. The last guy she lived with introduced her to meth and later to needles. He ended up going to prison and she found herself homeless for the first time in her life. The law finally caught up with her and the judge that presided over her case gave her a choice to either go to the women’s prison in Pocatello or go to enroll

Deerflat in 1998 and as it is today

in the Boise Rescue Mission’s New Life Program at City Lights in Boise to rehabilitate. She had a lot to learn. In the past, the Bible was used by people who betrayed her, so how could it be something to live by and believe in? On June 6, 2006, she went into the program as a total nonbeliever, but only 3 weeks later she accepted Christ, though she didn’t quite know what that meant at the time. As time went on, she came to believe that God had a plan for her life. She stayed there for 3 years. While there, she learned computer skills and got her G.E.D. 31 years after she quit high school. She learned to write a resumé, fill out a job application, and how to interview for a job. She did an internship at Boise Rescue Mission and has been working for the Mission for the past 7 years as an Administrative Assistant and for 3 of those years, she ministered to the women in the New Life Program. She told the group that it was a heartfelt thing for her to have been there for those ladies. She knows where they were in their lives because she lived their lives. She is now the Back Room Manager at the Rescue Mission Thrift Store in Nampa. Finally after 26 years of no contact with her second husband, on April 19th of this year, she got her divorce. Then on April 20th, she bought her first new home and on April 21st, she celebrated 10 years of sobriety. She is grateful to the judge who sentenced her to the Boise Rescue Mission, saying that it was the best thing anyone could have done for her.

by Leora Summers, Editor

She was the one who did the hard work, took the program to heart and used the tools she was taught through the program. She said it was the best toolbox anyone has ever given her and the best tool in that box was her new relationship with God. She said, “If you don’t use those tools given to you, then they are useless.” It takes a lot to undo something so ingrained into someone’s very being as it was into Flora’s. Flora has done the hard work and is an example of one of the strongest people anyone will ever meet. Boise Rescue Mission’s New Life Program at City Lights in Nampa and Boise serves women and children from our area who have suffered the consequences of drug and alcohol dependence. It works to give them the tools to overcome their addictions and the skills to look for and get a job and to take care of themselves and their children once they leave. For most it could take up to 18 months or longer as in the case of Flora. The “Little Lights” program for their children works to break the cycle of homelessness to improve their futures through education, counseling, and activities. Boise Rescue Mission receives no tax dollars and relies on contributions and the earnings from its thrift store. So donate your gently used clothing and household items and go shopping there! The Rescue Mission Thrift Store is located at: 1215 12th Avenue South, Nampa. For more information go to: BOISERM.ORG or call (208) 343-2389.

COUNTRY FAIR & FAMILY NIGHT Horseless Rodeo begins at 6 PM (No experience required, all ages welcome!)

Ground break is planned for early spring of 2017. It will be a process that will take them back to their pioneering spirit and strong faith, just as the first families who built that first Deerflat Church. It is with great anticipation and excitement that Deerflat is a part of our community and is growing to meet the demanding needs of Caldwell and surrounding areas.

Virginia Griffiths Remembered Each month, hours are spent formatting the pages of the Caldwell Perspective. After the paper is printed, it is mailed to over 13,000 addresses, I deliver them to many local businesses and then I label individual papers to be mailed to people who subscribe with the exception of one woman. After all the work is done I grab a freshly printed Caldwell Perspective and drive to Autumn Wind Assisted Living to see my friend, Virginia Griffiths for our long visit. As I would enter her room I would announce “paper delivery,” and she would smile and invite me to sit down. She told me so many wonderful stories, but mostly she spoke about her family complete with photos. What treasured days those have become. On June 16th, my friend Virginia went to be with the Lord, whom she loved very much. So

Over the past five years, The College of Idaho has experienced rapid enrollment growth, the launch of new programs and the addition of several new campus buildings. Now, the C of I is responding to the need for additional student housing by launching a three-phase plan to improve existing residence halls and add new residential housing space to the Caldwell campus. The plan is expected to cost around $17 million, with a target completion date of summer 2018. “Growth is a good thing, but we also recognize the need to upgrade and expand our residential facilities,” said C of I President Charlotte Borst. “Living on campus is a big part of The College of Idaho experience. We want to give our students the best possible resources and opportunities to live, learn and grow as members of our residential community.” Phase I of the project will be an approximate $4 million renovation of historic Voorhees Hall, a 15,000 squarefoot dorm built in 1912. The project will include a completely Voorhees Hall refurbished interior, additional wings to house new stairwells and other exterior upgrades, study rooms, a lounge area, updated furnishings and an elevator. Construction will begin this summer and will take about six months. Phase II of the project will include renovation of Finney Hall, one of two original campus buildings constructed in 1910. The 20,000 squarefoot building will receive an approximate $4 million upgrade similar in scope to Voorhees Hall, with a completely refurbished interior and other modern upgrades. Construction will begin in early 2017, immediately following completion of Phase I.

was able to grant Hospital Wish List Requests to five separate departments in WVMC for a total of $8,979.20. All monies raised by the Auxiliary through sales in the Gift Shop and fundraisers are given back to the community through scholarships and the “Hospital Wish List.”

WVMC Donates $17,000 to Caldwell Family YMCA

“Suite style” residential complex

“We are proud to have such a historic campus—it’s something we’ve celebrated during our 125th anniversary this year,” Borst said. “These upgrades will allow us to honor the tradition of cherished, century-old buildings while also providing the modern living spaces today’s students are looking for.” Phase III of the project will be the construction of a new, “suite style” residential complex that will provide 90 additional student beds. The new student housing complex, slated for construction at the corner of Illinois Avenue and Oak Street south of campus, will feature small groups of bedrooms built around common living and kitchen spaces. The cost is estimated at $9 million, and construction will begin immediately following the completion of Phase II in summer 2017. The housing improvement project continues an exciting trend on campus. Since 2010, the C of I has remodeled Boone Science Hall; created West Hall: Center for Physician Assistant Studies; renovated Simplot Stadium and built Wolfe Field Baseball Stadium in collaboration with the City of Caldwell; constructed Marty Holly Athletics Center; and broken ground on the state-of-the-art Cruzen-Murray Library, which is scheduled for completion in late 2017.

De-Stink-er-a-tor …for those who can’t take the odor-the “De-Stinkerator,” invented by my sister, Mandie Snow. A few drops of Essential Oils on a hospital mask helps the visit to the campground outhouse more tolerable. You don’t feel the need to leave before you even get to go! LOL! The “Red Neck Wine Bar.” Choose a boxed red, blush and a white and duct tape them to a set of trees with cups on top for “Wine at any Time.” Party Wagon: Bring one of those collapsible wagons. Kids love pulling them and you can load them up with bag chairs and other things when you go to visit other campers in your party. Also, the baby likes to ride in it and it is a good place for babies to play in with their toys.

Camping with Kids-A Good Sleep Interrupted

by Leora Summers, Editor

I’m talking about… I toss the small throw rug out the door, wash my feet and return to bed. Later, baby girl cries again. I go back to get her and bring her into bed. I feel something gooshy. ….and KatyDog slept well! You know what I’m talking about. It was between my comforter and blanket. The husband and I throw the comforter and blanket out the trailer door and pull a new blanket out and redo the bed and get back in with the crying baby girl. She goes back to sleep. Not long after, I hear a boy say “ouch!” I don’t care anymore. I am tired. I get up later to check on him. Now there is only one boy in bed. Where did the other one go? The port-a-crib is pushed away from the couch bed. I reach under and Tolo is stuck under the bed. I pull him out and put him back in bed and throw another cover over him. I get back in bed and try to go to sleep with baby girl (18 mos. old/26 lbs.) sleeping on my chest. My collar bone hurts. Daylight bursts through. Oh Thank God! It is morning! I get out of bed and leave baby girl there. She is all stretched out and smiling in her sleep. Can you believe it? Smiling! I go outside and lay in my gravity chair. The sun feels warm on my face. It is peaceful. Husband is out there and says that I should go back in and get some sleep. I don’t want to go back in there, so he goes back in and sleeps with baby girl, Alec, Tolo, Starsky and KatyDog. Later, they all get up. KatyDog slept well. I’m glad somebody did! The kids go home. I take a nap. Whew…… And to beat all, the campers next to us had about 4 kids who cried all night and screamed, “I want to go home! I want to go home! The fifth night, I slept like a baby!

Photo by Leora Summers

So the husband and I went “trailer camping” at Stanley Lake Campground for a week. The first two nights we had our 2 grandsons, Alec (age 7) and Tolo (age 5), and our German short hair dog, KatyDog (dog years-9, people years-63). The first night of sleeping: Husband and me-in the separate queen bed, the two boys-on the fold down couch with one in a sleeping bag on one end and the other in a sleeping bag on the other end, and the dog-on a pad under the table. The night didn’t go too badly, but one boy kept kicking the other in the face and one sleeping-bagged kid was sliding off the bed all night long. KatyDog slept well. The next night, I put both boys together at the head of the couch bed, tucked them in with an opened bag under them and an opened bag over them. One boy ended up uncovered at the bottom of the bed and I was up and down covering him up all night. KatyDog slept well. On the third night, the daughter and her hubby came up and that night the baby was added to our trailer in a port-a-crib and the parents slept out in a tent with their two rat-terriers, “Starsky and Hutch.” The port-a-crib was jammed up against the couch bed creating a wall to help keep the boys from falling out during the night and since the one boy ended up back on the other end the night before, I put them one on each end again. The baby didn’t do too badly and it seemed to be going pretty well. KatyDog slept well. On the fourth night, Starsky was added to the pot! That’s when the “chips” literally hit the fan. Now there were 2 dogs, one big and one the size of a large rat (Starsky). So everyone was tucked in once again. The baby cries and I go get her and bring her to my bed. The big dog barks loudly at the little dog that I thought was sleeping with the boys, so now I know that Starsky got in front of Katy and Katy decided to defend her territory. I get up and find Starsky and bring him to our bed with the husband and the baby, who keeps crying until I lay her on my chest and she snuggles in and sleeps. Once asleep, I try to take her to her bed and as I return, I step in it! You know what

It’s that time of year again, when my family all heads up to “Camp Weird.” Nothing better and more fun than getting out the Dutch oven and making up some of that good old-fashioned Dutch oven stew with those biscuits with a sausage swirl on top. I became acquainted with these amazing biscuits through my friend Marla Clevenger when she and her husband, Cal did their “Wagons Ho!” day at Lincoln School so many years ago. That’s what turned me on to Dutch oven cooking for the first time. I may not do it according to “the books,” but I do it with a little “guess and by golly!” So this is how I do it. Husband Sam ignites the coals with a little lighter fluid and while he does that I chop up all the vegetables, cut up the stew meat, and make the sausage biscuits that will be placed on top after all the necessary ingredients are added. I like to use a 12 quart Dutch oven so I can place 7 big biscuits on top of the stew. I rub down the Dutch oven with oil. When the coals are ready, I put a layer of coals on the ground to be under the oven and then place the oven on top of them, readying it to begin cooking.

Stew Ingredients:

4 slices of bacon, cut into 1 inch strips 1 lb. stew beef, chopped 4 large mushrooms, chopped ½ sweet onion, chopped 4 celery stalks, chopped 4 carrots, chopped 4 russet potatoes, cut into 1 inch cubes 24 oz. tomato juice 1 12 oz. can of beer

Before Cooked

Biscuit Ingredients: 2-1/4 cup of Bisquick 2/3 cup milk 12 oz. pork sausage

After Cooked

Biscuit Directions: Mix and knead the milk into the Bisquick until not sticky (add more milk or flour to create right dough consistency. Roll out the dough into a 1/2-inch thick dough rectangle, long and wide enough to roll into a swirl with the sausage. Pat the sausage thinly in a layer on top of the dough rectangle and then roll it together into one long roll. Cut roll across into 7 biscuits with the sausage swirl (about 1 to 1-1/2 inch thick raw biscuits). Charcoal Directions: Ignite charcoal. You can use starter fluid. Wait until they are glowing. Leave half of the hot coals on the ground to put the Dutch oven on. Save the other to put on the lid after you put the sausage biscuits on top of the stew ingredients. Stew Directions: Cook the bacon along with the stew meat. When that is cooked, add the mushrooms, onion and celery and cook that in the bacon grease with the cooked meat and bacon. When translucent, add the carrots and potatoes. Add about 24 oz. of tomato juice and one 12 oz. can of beer. The liquid should be to the top of the stew ingredients, if not add more until it is. When this is completed, place the 7 or however many biscuits that you cut on top. Place the Dutch oven lid on top and put the other half of the glowing coals on the lid. Remove the lid in about 40 minutes and check the biscuits. If they are cooked through, remove the coals from the lid and continue to cook the stew from the bottom coals. If not, cook a little longer and remove top coals when done. Cook the rest of the stew until the potatoes are soft. It took mine about 1 hour and 20 minutes from the start for the potatoes to get soft. Serve in bowls and give each person a biscuit on top. Serve with a little salad and you have a meal. This is one of my all-time camp favorites.
