4TH ANNUAL CALDWELL COMPASSION CLINIC
Emilia Rioseco, a Rotary International Foreign Exchange student from Santiago, Chile volunteered at the hair cutting station as an interpreter.
The cafeteria where lunch was served to all volunteers and those who came to be blessed.
Several dentists from Bridgetwoer Dental and hygienists volunteered in the dental room. Over 300 people received dental services.
The Prayer Station was a room where anyone could visit for a special prayer or spiritual message.
Free clothing was given to all in need.
Mike Dittenber, a second year volunteer drove the shuttle for the dental patients.
On Saturday, September 23rd Caldwell Compassion Clinic took place at Canyon Springs High School from 9 am to 3 pm. This event was made possible because of the time and skills donated by dozens of community volunteers of various ages. The turn out for the event was magnificent as time slots were given on a first come first serve
basis. The event consisted of free Medical and Dental check ups as well as hygiene services and financial coaching. Child care, a free lunch, and shuttle from Sacajawea Elementary School was also provided. Much help in set up and tear down before and after the event was done by students of our local high schools. These students also used
their physical strength to help carry food boxes to the vehicles of those in need. The students shared a common theme throughout the the day—they really enjoyed themselves and that volunteering makes them smile. Our up and coming generation is looking promising!
The First Full Week of October is National 4-H Week! by Mindy Scott, Editor
Canyon County is celebrating National 4-H Week by hosting 3 major events. The 4-H flag will be flying over the Canyon County Courthouse here in Caldwell. The first event kicks off on Wednesday and is STEM with the National Youth Science Day activity—Incredible Wearables. This event will allow youth to build their own fitness tracker in groups while learning more about the science behind how wearable gear functions scientifically. People interested in this can register by contacting Canyon County Extension Office at 208-459-6003. Thursday night the second event will take
place. This event is for 4-H teen and adult volunteers. The speaker will be covering how to create Positive Youth Development. The final event is fun for the entire family. It will be at Caldwell Gun Club. For $5.00 per family there will be stations to try many activities including shotgun, archery, air rifle, fishing, and hands- on science activities. Snacks and water will be provided as well. 4-H has been around for 75 years and has benefited many youth and families. If you are interested in finding out where you might be a great fit, please don’t hesitate to call the Canyon County Extension Office at 208-459-6003.
County Line 4-H Club had six Cloverbuds show their chickens at this past Canyon County Fair here in Caldwell.

Dodd visited with fans and signed copies of her newest release, a romantic suspense thriller called The Girl Who Couldn’t Scream. A spirit of camaraderie complemented snacks and intermittent peals of laughter as fans and book lovers welcomed Christina with questions and conversation. Christina Dodd is a fascinating woman whose success in writing has come at the cost of many years of hard work, during which time she has authored over fifty novels, gotten on the bestsellers list, and won a prestigious RITA award. She carved out her writing career while moving around the country over the years, living in Idaho, California, Texas, and Washington. While she’s lived in many places, I think we Idahoans are eager to claim her as one of our own. Dodd’s visit was nothing less than an honor for The Rubaiyat. Caldwell’s only bookshop is a small, comfortable place where book lovers can stop by any time, have a cup of coffee, and chat with other readers about books and life. We are a family here at the Rubaiyat and always more than eager to adopt more book people into our circle. To catch the eye of such a distinguished author was terrifically fun and invigorating for this community of book lovers in Caldwell.
The Riders at The Western Photo Booth.
On Saturday September 23, Caldwell Fine Arts presented a concert by Riders in the Sky. Fans purchased tickets before the event as well as at the door. Two performances took place; one at 4pm and one 7pm for a total attendance of approximately 6-700 people. These Cowboy Comedians were a big hit with their sense of humor, cowboy wit, and cowboy classics. Their unique cowboy get up was also entertaining. Interesting facts about this group include their Grammy-winning soundtrack for Toy Story 2 and Monsters Inc. and the length of time they have been together-nearly 40 years. The secret they say is “separate hotel rooms”. The audience also dressed for the occasion as many had on their cowboy/cowgirl best with hats, boots, and dresses to boot. Adults were encouraged and even thanked for bringing children with them to experience this multi generational performance. It was certainly a family affair while before each concert a “Wild West Town” was open for kids to pan for gold, ride a stick horse, and get their photos taken in traditional cowboy attire. During intermission all ages enjoyed a pick me up snack and drink before going back in for more fun. For more information on upcoming performances coming to Caldwell, visit www.caldwellfinearts.org or call 459-5275.
Christina Dodd Comes to Caldwell
On Wednesday the 20th, The Rubaiyat received a very special visit from the New York Times Bestselling romance and suspense author Christina Dodd. Dodd currently lives in Washington, but has family here in Idaho and even graduated from Boise State University. The Rubaiyat could not have been more pleased to host such an accomplished author for such a fun and friendly afternoon, where

Dominican Experiences Offer New Perspectives to CHS Student

Over the summer I had the amazing opportunity to study Spanish Language and Dominican Culture in the Dominican Republic. I lived in Santiago de los Caballeros, “The heart of the Dominican Republic”, for four weeks with a host family. I experienced culture and customs that I never knew existed. I discovered true independence as I traveled to another country alone and flew in an airplane for the first time. Every morning I would eat breakfast with my host family before attending Spanish class. Professor Sandra would teach me and 17 other students the principles of Spanish Language, as well as what it meant to be from the DR. Every day was something different and exciting which made it all so memorable. My Spanish Genaro Huitron in Dominican Republic on CFEO Sponsored Study- improved greatly, as I was not only learning the correct dialect, but Abroad Experience speaking it every day in and out of class. After class we went into the community to experience the city. We would stuff ourselves into the 10 person “Gua Guas” and immerse ourselves into the community. Some days our trips would be short with a stroll in parks and city centers, while others were longer, interviewing radio hosts and visiting local orphanages. After our community activity, we returned for lunch with our host families. Typical lunches consisted of rice, beans and chicken, beef, or pork. But the best part of all was the freshly squeezed mango and passionfruit juices made every morning. The evenings consisted of excursions which typically were the most fun and interesting. Some of our excursions included the Centro Leon Cultural Center, El Monumento, Puerto Plata beaches, and the Haitian-Dominican Border. Spending my summer abroad was one of the best things that has ever happened to me. Immersing myself in another culture gave me a new perspective on life and it is something I will never forget. I would not have been able to make it possible without the support of my advisors and the Caldwell Foundation for Educational Opportunity.

The City of Caldwell and the Caldwell Lions Club will be hosting an Arbor Day Celebration at the park by the freeway in Caldwell. The event will be held in the park at 10:30 on October 11th. The club has purchased 26 trees to be planted in the park to help abate the noise from the freeway. Honored attendees will be Caldwell Mayor, Garret Nancolas, Lions District Governor Tim Vincent, Club President Alex Esparza and City Parks Director Vinton Howell. The public is invited. The city has plans for upgrading the rest rooms, adding lighting and replacing the flood irrigation system with an underground system. The club has set up a legacy fund to update the playground, upgrade the basketball courts, install gazebos and other park equipment. This is a long term effort for the club and they appreciate any funding help for the project.

Caldwell Fire Department Update
by Lisa Richard
ways out. • Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them. • Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find.
• Close doors behind you as you leave — this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. • Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.
4X4 Shop Inc. Firefighters Breakfast
In August, we welcomed five new recruits to the Fire Department. They are currently undergoing vigorous training in the Fire Academy to prepare them to effectively serve our community. The recruits will be tested on many aspects in the field to ensure they are ready to take on the challenges they may face in real life situations. We recently celebrated a couple of promotions within the department. Robert Bailey was promoted to Captain and Greg Cobb was promoted to Apparatus Driver/Operator. Their achievements were celebrated with a private ceremony with their families and friends. In September, we took part in several community events. On 9/11 we participated in the Caldwell Flag Ceremony were we raised the American Flag with our ladder truck as the community remembered the events and those that were lost. The firefighters showed off their flipping skills as
they served flapjacks and eggs during Indian Creek Days. We had an estimated 85 people attend and enjoy breakfast with the firefighters and collected $420.00 for the Caldwell Burnout Fund. The Caldwell Fireman’s Association hosted Fire in the Hole Golf Tournament Fundraiser. The day consisted of ten teams in a four-person scramble ending with dinner provided by Indian Creek Steakhouse and a raffle with items donated from many local businesses. This event had a huge impact on the Caldwell Burnout Fund raising over $4,000.00. Thank you to all of our teams and sponsors for participating in this year’s event. We are already excited for next year’s golf tournament, as we have received many inquiries of interest from the community to participate. Fire Prevention week is October 8-14. This year’s theme is Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out! In
support of Fire Prevention Week, Fire Marshall Andy Cater encourages all Caldwell households to develop a plan together and practice it. A Home Escape plan includes working smoke alarms on every level of the home, in every bedroom, and near all sleeping areas. It also includes two ways out of every room, usually a door and a window, with a clear path to an outside meeting place (like a tree, light pole, or mailbox) that’s a safe distance from the home. NFPA and the Caldwell Fire Department offer these additional tips and recommendations for developing and practicing a Home Escape Plan: • Draw a map of your home with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit. • Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different

Good candidates are tax exempt organizations who show how their organization will serve the pressing needs

of the community. The Organization favors projects that include matching funds from other sources, specific needs within a larger program rather than operating expenses, and those that benefit the greatest number of people in our community. Grant applications can be obtained by calling Debra Vis at 208-4590021 or emailing her at deb@ cpaforyou.net or by sending a request to Southwest Idaho Legacy Organization, (SILO), and PO Box 1358, Caldwell, ID 83606-1358.

Applications need to be submitted by October 16, 2017 and grants will be awarded by October 31, 2017. The award
must be used within one year of being issued. The SILO is a nonprofit organization to which contributions can also be made. Although the Foundation has been very good stewards of the funds they were entrusted with, the effects of time on money have made the organization’s community impact a little smaller each year. If you would like to contribute to an organization that makes your community a better place to live, you can do so by mailing your contributions to the above address or contacting any Board Member. Additionally the organization is also seeking members of the community to serve on the board, if you are interested please contact any Board Member.
First Annual Tomato Taste Off
by Richard Guggenheim
The University of Idaho Extension in Canyon County hosted their first annual Treasure Valley Tomato Taste Off on September 16th. Twentytwo individuals attended the event which featured tomato tasting, lunch and classes on preserving, dehydrating, canning, and seasonal extension. The public was invited to participate and enter their favorite tomato varieties which were divided into three categories and awards were given to the best paste, salad, and slicing tomato as voted on by participants. The best tasting variety in each category were: Mama Mia in the Paste Tomato, Japanese Black Truffle took the Best Slicer and White Cherry took the best salad tomato. Award winners were given $25 gift certificates to local nurseries. Lunch was served by chef Nancy of Basics Idaho and tomatoes were donated by Pitchfork Farms. Lunch included a caprese, paella with freshly chopped tomatoes provided by participants, as well as a delicious tomato blackberry sorbet. All in all it was a successful event. We hope you will join us with your tomatoes next year.

The skeleton of the Trump tax plan has been released which gives us an opportunity to look it over and comment to our elected officials as to what we like and dislike. There are not many details available as of this writing but we will take a look and see what we can learn – and make some observations as to what the end product may look like. The plan as proposed for individuals would reduce the number of tax brackets from seven (10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33%, 35%, and
39.6%) to three (12%, 25%, and 35%.) The standard deduction would double from its current $12,600 for married filing jointly, $6,350 for single, and $9,350 for heads of households. It would also eliminate the federal estate tax and the alternative minimum tax. For corporations the tax rate would decrease from 35% to 20%. Like all things associated with our taxes, there is really nothing simple about the proposal. Yet to be defined is the income levels associated with the new tax brackets, which makes it very difficult to evaluate how the proposal impacts any individual. Also
Business by Michael Hensel, CPA
difficult to evaluate is the doubling of the standard deduction. Currently the deduction phases out as individual or family incomes reach a certain threshold, does that remain in the new proposal or not? Another question yet to be answered, but for most of us it doesn’t matter as we aren’t in that income range. The elimination of the estate tax benefits the wealthy as the current law allows couple with up to $11 million to avoid estate taxes already. The elimination of the AMT is again of greater benefit to the wealthy although currently people that were never intended to be taxed under the law sometimes see an AMT. For simplification purposes it is certainly an elimination that would be successful. The reduction of the corporate tax rate is designed to encourage US corporations to repatriate the profits they earn in foreign countries and hopefully, encourage them to invest those profits in this country helping to increase our economy. Only time will tell if it is successful. While there is some simplification in this proposal, it is far from finished legislation. The final bill will probably be much more complex as issues such as charitable contributions are debated. We will keep our eyes and ears open and report as things become more concrete.
Secure your Identity
October 2017 by Emily Valla, BBB Northwest
October marks National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, and the idea of protecting your identity has been top of mind in recent weeks. Thieves would love to get ahold of anything containing your name, address, date of birth, driver’s license number, Social Security number, etc. And every October, Better Business Bureaus nationwide want to help you destroy some of the documents that may have that information. It’s time for free shred day! On Saturday, Oct. 21, BBB is teaming up with Shred It, Western Records and Computers for Kids to offer free document shredding and electronic recycling. The event runs 10 a.m. to noon at Renaissance High School at the West Ada School District, 1307 E Central Dr., Meridian. It’s a quick drive to the Meridian exit. We’re also excited to have the help of Nampa Police Volunteers, who will run traffic control. If you aren’t sure about taking the time out of your Saturday, consider the time it takes to recover from identity theft. It can take several weeks, even months, to get your identity out of the bad guys’ hands. So, toss up to three bags or boxes of paper into the car and take a big step towards protecting your and your family’s identities. Maybe you do most of your sensitive transactions online, and don’t have much to shred. Have you considered what you’re doing with old electronics? The cell phone that’s junk drawer memorabilia or the computer that’s collecting dust in the closet? Those devices can have your sensitive information stored! Computers for Kids and Secure Data Sanitization are ready to recycle those electronics securely. They’ll wipe them clean, and if the device is usable, it’ll be repurposed and given to children in need in our area. If not, the device will be safely destroyed. Phones, computers, hard drives, printers and more are all warmly welcomed, but we are unable to accept televisions. As you pack up for Oct. 21, remember there are a few documents to hang on to. Here’s a quick rundown of what needs to stay and what needs to go: • Keep for three years: bank statements, expired insurance policies and employment applications. • Keep for seven years: invoices, cancelled stock certificates, payroll records and withholding statements. • Keep permanently: deeds, mortgages, tax returns, audit reports, insurance records, legal correspondence and property records. Don’t worry- save your hands and leave the staples in, even a few paper clips won’t hurt. Bring up to three boxes or bags. For secure data destruction year-round, consider getting a personal shredder. Before then, let us catch you up or get you started shredding from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 21 at West Ada School District.
Worth the wait, Destination Caldwell hires an excellent executive director
by Mindy Scott, Editor
After taking their time to find the right fit, the Destination Caldwell Board of Directors has welcomed Wisti Rosenthal as their executive director. Hired at the end of September, Wisti is an excellent communicator who believes in kindness, honesty, integrity and tenacity. Always open to listening to new ideas and the concerns of community members, Wisti strives to meet people where they are and is willing to view things from other people’s perspective. As the city of Caldwell strives to make Indian Creek Plaza the premier gathering space in Idaho, Wisti has been inspired by the colleges, chamber, city, local businesses and hospital coming together for the greater good; a true community-wide collaboration. While meeting with Wisti, one can plainly sense her passion to see Indian Creek Plaza be completed well. Her proven track record in regards to community and economic development attests to her ability to see a vision and bring it to fruition. Wisti is a diligent worker with many tasks to be completed over the next several months, none more important than hiring a hardworking staff to get Indian Creek Plaza up and running. The goal of this new development is to give the community a place to come together for concerts and events, shopping and leisure, as well as provide beautification to the downtown area. We welcome Wisti and look forward to participating in the construction and development of a beautiful downtown area for Caldwell.

Follow your Dreams–against all odds
Molly (on left) and co-worker posing in front of helicopter. Molly Knight is a brilliant local lady currently residing in Wilder. Let me tell you about her. She is a born leader and ready to make a difference in more than one way. She is a wife, a mother, and a nurse. Molly has a heart of compassion and a “let’s make it happen” attitude. Her initiative is in full force and driving her life into a place of excellence.
Currently, Molly Knight has begun taking online classes to earn her second bachelor degree in Nursing. Her first degree is in sociology. It takes plenty of hours and dedication to complete school work, study new material, and pass tests as well as patience as she cares for her family and works full time. However, Molly couldn’t be happier. Her accomplishments don’t stop there. Molly has always had the desire to go out into the world locally and abroad to help people medically as well as show love. She has recently completed a vigorous selection process and has been offered the adventure to work with Samaritan’s Purse Emergency Medical team. Molly was one of over 500 applicants. 25 were
chosen. What does this mean? At least twice a year, (sometimes more), Molly will be deployed for 2-4 weeks at a time to any area that has suffered natural disasters. Upon arrival she will provide necessary medical attention in an empathetic and professional way to those in need. When asked how her husband will do in her absence she says with confidence, “He’s got this. He can work and take care of the kids without a problem.” Our community is blessed to have Molly as part of it and so is the medical community. They are fortunate to have her on staff as she is passionate about what she does and it shows. Congrats once again on your many achievements and well wishes
When your biggest fears become your greatest blessings
It was then, sitting in a car on a rainy Oregon night, when I finally voiced my greatest fear of all. I plainly admitted to my friend that getting married and becoming a stay-at-home mother equated to death. My young heart was full of dreams, hopes, and aspirations. No matter the cost, I was determined to safeguard them and never be stuck in a rut. Fast-forward ten years, and I am sitting upstairs of my beautiful home, writing an article for the local newspaper while listening to the soft breathing of four precious kids. My own children! And four of them. I catch myself saying, “I LOVE MY LIFE”. It surely did not turn out the way I planned. Nevertheless, I must admit that the life mapped out by Providence ended up to be so much better! My fear of marriage was rooted in false
stereotypes. I dreaded living on the same street for 30 years, raising children and having no time for personal growth. This state of stagnation would surely have killed every yearning and longing of my soul. But I learned that it does not have to be this way! I choose how to live my life. I am in full control. It is up to me to create heaven or hell on this earth. I chose the heavenly. Having an adventurous husband who adores me is my greatest blessing of all. His tender love gives life to all of my dreams. Over the years of this secure relationship, I learned to dream bigger, to see farther. We have traveled to many places and lived in four different states. My memory album is full of beautiful recollections. We had opportunities to form strong friendships with amazing people all over the world. No
Children need love filled homes
by Polina Bratkov
university could have ever given me what I learned from them. Being a mom made me fast and strong. I am obliged to be organized and creative. The pressure of motherhood brought forth beautiful fruits of perseverance, patience, and pure love. And as Charles Dickens in his famous Pickwick Papers advised us to “never say never” (1837), so do I now. I used to be so scared of the everyday drudgery, but now I find much joy and freedom in this season of life. I know the time is coming when I will come out of the shadows and will have my chance to save the world. And I will be ready. I will be well-prepared because I learned to be faithful in little and therefore can be trusted with much. I treasure all life’s experiences, count my blessings, and declare: “I love my life”. by Mindy Scott, Editor
Children are a very special group of people. Although they are small, their ideas, emotions and needs are big. Every child has at least one thing in common—the need for love. To grow up in a loving home these days seems to be a real treat. I’m unsure as to how we got here, but I’m convinced that talking about it will help. The last statistic I read said that there were over 420,000 children currently in the foster care system here in America. That number just seems too high for my liking. These children are waiting to be adopted. I realize that not everyone has the time, money, desire, or resources to adopt a child, however, I’m certain there are other ways to show compassion. For example, did you know that at Christmas time many foster children will not receive a gift if it weren’t for giving community members? In the Treasure Valley alone there is a shortage of foster homes for children in the foster care system. Another need is creating a better way for child to transport their belongings from home to home. Most don’t have luggage and put their earthly belongings in garbage bags. These children did not ask for this life and as children they need someone to be a voice for them, so, here I am being a voice for those without one. I’d like to challenge all of us this October to be creative in how we can reach out as a community in the great city of Caldwell, ID on how we can show Idaho Health and Welfare as well as foster parents and children that we care about their needs.

Fall brings some delicious foods that must be taken advantage of! Take note of these 4 fall favorites: Apples Whether sweet or tart, there is a variety for everybody that is sure to keep apples at the top of the fall foods list. Not only are they delicious and diverse, they offer quite a nutritional punch. Rich in fiber, vitamin C, and potassium, apples will leave you feeling satisfied. Make sure to leave the skin on for added fiber. Bake apples with cinnamon, or pair with your favorite peanut butter for an easy, go-to snack. Spaghetti squash Spaghetti squash is a fun winter squash that is low in calories and carbohydrates. However, it is full of water, which means this squash fills
Sweet potatoes A super versatile, starchy vegetable loaded with vitamin A, fiber, and potassium that will quickly become your favorite fall food staple. There is not much that you can’t do with sweet potatoes, from simply baking, to tossing roasted sweet potato in a kale salad, to using them as dessert with toasted marshmallow atop. Be creative with this one! Beets This vegetable doesn’t go to waste as it is edible from its leafy greens to its vibrant root! Beets are packed with fiber, and they may also be beneficial in helping to support a healthy blood pressure. Toss the greens in a salad or sauté with garlic. The beet root can be eaten raw too. Thinly slice and add to your salad. They don’t go unnoticed when baked into crispy chips, or try steaming beets for a quick and easy way to serve them up as a healthy side dish.
Family Travels to Ecuador and falls in love with its people
Russell and Sarah Badgley and their 3 children, have chosen a unique lifestyle. They have decided to leave the normal comforts of home in America, which many of us take for granted, and travel outside of their culture to an entirely foreign land. They devout their lives to an Indigenous people group, The Shuar people group in the jungle of Ecuador. Making this decision took many years of preparation, consideration, and prayerful contemplation. Their lives are filled with much adventure, trials, and new experiences. In June, Russell and Sarah returned home from an eight month stay in Ecuador where they helped many people. Both Russell and Sarah are able to use their skill sets to make a difference in Ecuador. Russel is by trade a land surveyor. He is currently creating a large map of many hard-toaccess jungle villages. Notes are made of folks who have been introduced to the Gospel message and are interested in learning more about pastoral training. Other villages who have never heard the Gospel are also noted. This provides a way in which The Badgleys can return upon invitation to a village. They hope to partner with villages in helping them
meet their needs and desires for ongoing spiritual care and facilitate their training and efforts in community development. Sarah is by trade a midwife. She is a wealth of resource to pregnant women she meets. During her time in Ecuador she was able to help women who were experiencing acute crises as well as lend education to sexually assaulted young women who were staying at a government run home for ages 1217. While educating the women who desired prenatal education she equally learned as much, if not more from them about Ecuadorian birth culture and their traditional
medical practices. The Badgley family is back in the area restoring their health and raising funds to return. Their goal is to return this month to Ecuador with the long-term goal of church planting in this area. What an interesting family they are indeed! *Those interested in supporting this family on their mission please visit http://www.friendsmission. com/donate/give-onlinenow and select Badgley, Ecuador.

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS MONTH
by Kim Deugan
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) was passed September 13, 1994. It was the day legislation forever changed the way our country responds to domestic abuse and sexual assault. Today it continues to provide every American the assurance of pursuing a life free from harm. Domestic Violence Awareness Month evolved from the first Day of Unity observed in October 1981 by the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The intent was to connect battered women’s advocates across the nation working to end violence against women and their children. The Day of Unity soon became a special week when a range of activities were conducted at the local, state, and national levels. Women today are
empowered to speak out and more girls are growing up becoming aware of their right to be free from abuse. We know that 1 in 3 will suffer the effects of domestic abuse and 1 in 5 will be sexually assaulted while in college. These statistics are alarming, yet they are only what’s reported. How many more are affected by these horrific acts that we don’t even know about? There is much to be done, even today, for those victimized. At AAFV we are deeply concerned about the remarks of U.S. Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, announcing her plan to rewrite federal guidance on how schools address sexual violence. It’s alarming to hear her speak repeatedly as if the real problem is false accusations not the alarming rates of rape and sexual assault on college campuses. Within our Teen Outreach Program at AAFV we see daily the effects of sexual assault on those we work with at the 6th-12th grade education level.
At AAFV we do not intend to back down in services provided. We will continue to be an excellent resource for parents, educators, and students wanting to put an end to domestic abuse and sexual assault. Please join us, as a community, in affirming our commitment to creating an environment where sexual assault and domestic abuse is unacceptable. Stand with us in support of survivors! If you or someone you know is in need of free assistance on their path to freedom, please call 459-4779 and ask to speak with an advocate or counselor.

October 2017 The Time for Two was a tavern located on the northeast corner of Highway 69 and Overland Road, on the south edge of Meridian. I became acquainted with the place in the mid 1960s. That ended when I got married. The Time for Two was operated by Pearl and Ad, a married couple who were probably in their late 50s at that time. Ad was a fairly tall guy with big shoulders. He was pretty quiet except when he got in an argument with Pearl which was fairly often. Pearl was a brunette whose eyes emitted sparks when she got mad and she seemed to be mad about something most of the time.

NOT IMPORTANT...BUT POSSIBLY OF INTEREST!
The Time for Two wasn’t what you would classify as a rough place for those days but it did have its moments. On evening, a buddy and yours truly were sitting at the bar. There was a pool table directly behind us where two guys were involved in a game. Suddenly, we heard a “Thwack!” behind us. My companion said it resembled to noise made when somebody hits somebody with a pool cue. We turned on our stools and looked. Sure enough, one of the pool players was holding a broken cue. The other player had his hand over his nose with blood running from between his fingers. Pearl, always sensitive, yelled at the victim not to bleed on the pool table. The Time for Two was always busy on Saturday nights during the summer. One of Pearl and
Ad’s sons was a well-known driver at Meridian Speedway just down the road. After the races, a lot of the drivers, their spouses, girlfriends and fans, stopped at the tavern. One night after the races, I was sitting at the bar with several companions. Pearl was behind the bar and we noticed her eyes were locked on a table Ad was serving. She was mumbling that the blonde at the table better stop flirting with her husband. Now Ad was old enough to be the blonde’s father. And it didn’t appear to us that the young lady was doing anything except kidding around. So we returned to our conversation. Suddenly I caught some motion out of the corner of my eye. I turned just in time to see Pearl letting go of a rather large glass ash tray that went sailing across the room, missed the
Best Seller Book Review by Amy Perry Taming a Wild Heart by David Kelley David Kelley is the author of the children’s book, Look at the Clouds. David was born in southern Idaho and now resides in Nampa, Idaho with his wife Norma. Taming a Wild Heart is Kelley’s debut novel. The story is told in vignettes. Les, a hunter/trapper, becomes deathly ill while out in the wilderness and is trapped by a blizzard. The story continues after he recovers and carries through to old age and death. Based on the life of Lester Kelley, it is the story of an honorable man and deserves to be written. Kelley’s writing is a dry and discordant, but shows great promise with additional editing. Kelley fails to stay “in voice” which causes some confusion in the timeline. This book seems more like an inspirational memoir, rather than a novel. This story would appeal to the outdoorsmen; however, it has merit for anyone. Taming a Wild Heart was the reading choice for August for the Northwest Authors Book Club, hosted by The Rubaiyat LLC on the 3rd Friday of each month, at 6:00 pm. Northwest Authors Book Club is open to the public, no purchase required. Reading choice for September was The Woman Who Couldn’t Scream by Christina Dodd.

American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land by Monica Hesse When a rural county on Virginia’s Eastern Shore becomes ground zero for an arsonist, the community is perplexed and puzzled, frustrated and angry. Virginia’s Accomack County is a long drive from the more populated and prosperous parts of the state and the people who live there pride themselves on their work ethic, their commitment to community, and what they see as a simpler, and possibly better, way of life. It is no doubt then, that when fires start popping up all around the area, they are alarmed and unsure what to make of the destruction. One fire might be an accident; sixty fires is arson. Hesse spends a year investigating these crimes and in doing so, delves into what life on the Eastern Shore is like, building a foundation of a county that was once prosperous, but has fallen into poverty over the last few decades. She explores the culture that is unique to the area and digs into why someone would purposely burn down their own county. Charlie and Tonya are at the heart of this tale, a couple struggling to keep together a dying relationship, pushing each other beyond the limits of where either would go individually. From the very first fire to the last trial, Monica Hesse takes readers on a journey through the psyche of small-town America and a community plagued by two of their own.

THREE SHORT STORIES THAT EXPLAIN MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE OWYHEE MOUNTAINS Story No. 1: Friday Friday I hiked eight casual miles, reveling in the splendid early summer beauty of the Owyhee Mountains. That evening I watched two bull elk carefully protecting massive, velvet covered antlers as they threaded their way through the junipers and saw the sun dissolve into a fantastic pool of purples and reds. After dining on grilled venison with sautéed onions and garlic I relaxed in camp thinking the kind of thoughts that I imagined a nobleman might think and pondering the possibly cosmic question: “If I locate a cave in the canyon wall above a creek deep in the Owyhee Mountains, is it presumptuous of me to declare that I’ve ‘discovered’ the geologic formation when in fact it has existed in its present form for perhaps a million years?” Story No. 2: Saturday Saturday morning I set off afoot, following trails carved into geologic formations that have been here for perhaps a million years. My desksoftened body performed satisfactorily because, after exhaustion began to set in 6½ miles out of camp, there was no choice but to satisfactorily complete the 6½-mile hike back into camp. The mesh top cap I wore did a nice job of providing air circulation but failed to prevent the intense solar radiation from toasting my bald scalp. My lightweight, low-top running shoes did a fantastic job of providing a sense of nimbleness but failed to provide adequate support

to prevent my left ankle from turning painfully three times, and my right ankle once. At one point, while pitching face first towards the rocks as an ankle gave out, my spine twisted and then failed to realign properly. In camp Saturday evening I find that dehydration and sunburn have left me with an excruciating headache. Though both my legs feel as if they’ve been run over by a Caterpillar tractor I’m grateful, because I know were it not for the throbbing aches emanating from these large muscle groups my swollen left ankle would be emitting piercing shrieks of pain. While a can of pork and beans is heating over the fire I hobble into the brush outside of camp, dig a little hole in the ground, relieve myself into it, then hobble back to camp and fix a
batch of popcorn. Attempts to relax are interrupted by rebellious messages my head and my back and my legs keep sending to my brain. I can’t for the life of me imagine what sort of thoughts a nobleman might think in the extremely unlikely event that one were to find himself in my condition and the only question I’m pondering is “Why the hell aren’t you at home making cosmic love to your hot wife?” Story No. 3: Sunday Sunday’s trek began and ended at the mouth of Little Boulder Creek. The mid-point was the fire lookout on top of South Mountain, some 5 ½ miles and 2,000 feet in elevation above the creek.

at my tomato plants and they are loaded with tomatoes at various stages and tons blossoms. As I told you awhile ago the high heat will stifle fruit production until it cools back down. Now we’re getting close to our very first frost that probably will kill off the garden veggies, but there is hope for saving some of that great production. If you have the desire and means to drape sheets of fabric or plastic (if you can keep them from touching the plants) by using cages or tee posts. Place a couple incandescent light bulbs,( LED and fluorescent lights don’t emit enough heat) to be of any benefit. You’re not trying
to create a lot of heat just enough to prevent the frost access to the plants leaves. In the morning uncover and turn off the light.

blossoms into my respiratory system and magnificent vista after stunningly magnificent vista into my visual cortex until, gaining a ridgeline just short of the summit and overwhelmed by exertion, solitude and sensory stimulation, I paused. Leaning into the wind, arms outstretched, I felt the coolness of evaporating sweat and the trembling of the hawk feather I had stuck into my cap. Grateful tears spilled down my cheeks as I willed the wind to carry me to the noble heights of the golden eagle soaring overhead and quacking sobs held fast in my heart the positively cosmic question: “Of the infinite number of spots which exist in the Universe, any number of which I could at this moment be occupying, how totally amazing is it to find myself at precisely the singular and exclusive point from which originated every happy song ever sung, every joyful dance ever danced, every beautiful picture ever painted, every peaceful poem ever penned, and every great and moving story ever told?” Postscript Although the experiences described in these three stories differ markedly from each other, none has a relatively greater or lesser impact on my affection for the Owyhee Mountains. Whether a day in these hills ends in sublime contentment, crippling fatigue, or transcendent exaltation, there’s no place in the cosmos I would rather have spent that day!

Watering should be about once or twice a week now, but by the tenth of October the pressurized irrigation will be turned off. Schedule your winterization so you don’t get pushed too close to freezing temps. You should, however, know how to at least shut off your water main and drain the system until you get it blown out.

“It’s On Us” - Caldwell Youth Forum
CALDWELL, IDAHO. It began with 15 community volunteers, then added 58 high school students, 6 school staff, and 3 college student advocates. Place this mix of humanity on the College of Idaho campus for a one-day seminar in equipping students to step out of the bystander role and engineer positive change, and the result is the Caldwell Youth Forum, held Wednesday, September 13, 2017. The theme for the day, ‘It’s On Us,’ flowed through each of the sessions, giving students the confidence to take action in reducing destructive behaviors aimed at other students, and to replace them with constructive behaviors. Ron Bonneau, the Youth Forum Subcommittee Chair, summarized the intent
and purpose in this way: “The Caldwell Youth Forum’s outreach to students from our local high schools is to provide them with resources addressing the importance for social responsibility by embracing diversity, inclusiveness, and active involvement in their school’s community. By providing an environment in our schools where students are accepted, feel safe, and enjoy the process, confidence improves, fears are minimized, and learning becomes a priority.” This annual event began at 9:00 am with registration and introductions, followed by activities designed to help students get comfortable with each other, and to realize that they share more similarities
than differences, despite being from six different high schools. With common ground established, students were able to freely interact in discussions about who inspires them and why, as well as some of their own Contact:Angie Point During the lunch break, Mayor Garret Nancolas interacted individually with many of the students, recommending that each one get involved in activities that promote positive relationships within their school culture. He also spoke to the group as a whole, encouraging students to have the courage to intervene in difficult situations; to help those who may not be able to stand up for themselves. His primary emphasis to students: “you
have the power to make change happen.” Bukky Ogunrinola, one of the student attendees, summed up her view of this opportunity: “When spaces like the Caldwell Youth Forum are created to hear the concerns of youth, society in turn sees students develop into passionate members of their communities. By allowing students to deviate an educational experience outside of a classroom setting and still leave intellectually stimulated, shows that youth are interested in our society’s issues. Which means it is a necessity that we allow them in the room when discussing solutions to those issues.” Afternoon programming included training on identifying
bullying, and how to defuse bullying and similar situations where another student is being pressured into a situation they don’t want to participate in. Students then formed back into their individual school groups in order to discuss ways they might motivate other students to buy into activities that promote positive behaviors and viewpoints. The final charge to students was to develop a school-wide project within the next several months to implement positive change at their own school. As students left at the end of the day, they could be heard excitedly discussing steps they could take to bring the day’s message back to their own campus.

“Why I Like the Y”
First, I like the Y because it has many ways you can make friends and play games with everyone. They have a YAK, which is a youth center for kids. It is a place where kids and teens can play games such as xbox, board games, computers, and they serve snack M-F at 3:30 for free. The YMCA also has a gym where kids can play basketball and run around. They have an after school program for after school. They also have a rock wall where you can climb. They have a place next to child watch where they do gymnastics and fitness superstars for kids. Child watch is where you can drop off your younger children to play while you go work out.
by Noah Scott, age 10
Upstairs is for grown ups where you can lift weights and use cardio machines. At age 10 a class is offered to train you on equipment so you can use certain machines while you are young. The track is also upstairs where you can run around for miles or walk miles. In the summer time they also have snack at Heritage school. The path behind the Y connects to the school. There is an aquatic center where you can go swimming with the family. There is also a hot tub, lazy river, a drop off, and another water slide. The pool area is covered inside so you can swim in the winter time too. That is why I like the Y.
our students. In addition, Washington staff members were given personalized “Washington Wildcat” thumb drives to keep teaching records and lessons safe. It was truly Christmas in August for Washington Elementary School students and staff! We are very grateful for our partnership with Micron and Spektec and appreciate their support of Washington Elementary!

For families with kids, we’ve begun a series of weekly bilingual story times called “Hora de Cuentos.” Join us on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. in October and November. Stories, songs and rhymes are told in English and Spanish. Too old for storytime? Wednesday programs for school age kids, are open to ages 6-11.

Does your family include a student in middle school or high school? Check out Teen Thursdays weekly at 4 p.m. On Thursday, October 12, we’ll celebrate Teen Read Week with a special program about storytelling.
