Charlotte Borst, New C of I President

There’s a new girl in town. She’s smart, warm, witty and robust and she loves football! Her name is Charlotte Borst and she is the new president of the College of Idaho (C of I) and the first lady president in the history of the college. She now lives in the C of I’s “President’s House” with her husband of 40 years, Dr. Richard “Rick” Censullo, who has a

Rick and Humphrey

Ph.D. in physics from Brandeis University and is an IT director for a consulting business in upstate New York. As good fortune would have it, he can work remotely from anywhere. They have two adult children and in the fall, their son and his wife will be having their first granddaughter to add to the family and they are very excited. To begin with, Charlotte and Rick began to make this house their home by giving it some new touches of their own. New hardwood floors replaced the carpet and Charlotte put some red accents in the living room area and brought her own piano for future activities. The main bathroom now has been “Yotied up” with a Yote purple accent wall. How fun is that! When I visited them, I asked Charlotte if being here was what she thought it would be. She said that it was even better than she thought it would be. Neighbors introduced themselves and brought welcome gifts over. She loved how friendly everyone was. Charlotte and Rick love the outdoors and in the two short months that they had been here, they had gone camping near Pine, above Banks, Stanley and McCall and slept in their Jeep Ranch Cherokee with Humphrey, their 4 year old English bulldog. The only thing that wasn’t so hot about being here this summer, was that it was soooo hot! That was not particularly expected. Let’s talk a little bit about Humphrey. Humphrey is Charlotte and Rick’s first dog ever and they got him when he was 9 months old from a place in Hollywood when they lived in California. “He is a ‘Hollywood dog’ and acts it!” said Charlotte. Charlotte and Rick’s backdoor neighbors have chickens and a rooster and Humphrey has taken to imitating the sounds of the rooster! Oh joy! Charlotte thinks maybe Humphrey should have his own twitter account and blog. I suggested she call it, “Humphrey’s Dog Blog!” At the recent Caldwell Chamber Luncheon at the C of I in August, Charlotte told of her goal to move the C of I’s reputation of being a “hidden gem” forward to become a “national gem.” The development of the PEAK program, where students graduate on time with a major and a couple of minors has put the C of I in the limelight and other higher institutions are following suit. This type of education prepares students with skills that allows them to make a connection with many different disciplines giving them a broader range of employment opportunities. Charlotte is in tune with and excited about this format of education. She had an undergrad degree in biology and an MA in history and as she furthered her education, she earned an MA and a Ph.D. in the history of science and medicine. A teacher-scholar from her undergraduate days showed her how science and history could be combined and that helped her find her niche in liberal arts education. Immediate past C of I president, Marv Henberg, began a new legacy during his term that Charlotte is totally excited about, FOOTBALL! Her first academic job was in Alabama where football was huge and she is very excited about football at the C of I. She invites and welcomes everyone to support our community’s newest football team. Welcome to Caldwell Charlotte, Rick and of course...Humphrey! And congratulations on becoming a grandma, grandpa and granddog this fall!

QUESTION: What’s This BIG?

Mayor Nancholas at the Chamber Luncheon held at Memorial Park

Coach Mike Moroski at the Chamber Luncheon

ANSWER: C of I Football!

Hip Hip Hooray for Marv Henberg, past president of the College of Idaho (C of I) for having the vision and determination to bring football back to the C of I and Caldwell! This community has really come together over C of I football. Coach Moroski didn’t make any promises last year as to how the season would go, but the season far surpassed his expectations with both wins and the number of folks going to the hometown games with about 5,000 people attending each game. The Yotes have one season under their belts, so are a little more experienced and bigger than they were last year. One advantage they had last year was the fact that other team’s scouts had no information on them since they had no prior games. The new season and second year of C of I football began with its first game on August 29th against Eastern Oregon (EO). We won (Yotes-40, EO-28)! If you haven’t been to a game, go to one this fall and feel the energy and excitement that C of I football has brought to our community! Thanks again Marv Henberg for having the vision, and thanks Coach Moroski for bringing it to fruition!

LOVE CALDWELL SPONSORS 2ND ANNUAL CLINIC Submitted by Jim Porter, Pastor of Caldwell Free Methodist Church

Submitted photos

Volunteer Admistrating Immunization.

Dental Services Performed at the Love Caldwell Free Medical Clinic On September 19, Love Caldwell will host its second annual free One-Day Health Clinic and Social Services Fair at Canyon Springs High School, in Caldwell. “Compassion Caldwell” offers free medical, dental, health and hygiene services as well as financial coaching, clothing and other necessities to under-resourced families. Representatives from a variety of Social Service agencies will be available on-site to direct families and individuals with unmet needs to their free or low-cost services. The clinic will be held from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Canyon Springs in Caldwell, located at 516 N 11th St. Limited time slots are available on a first come/ first served basis. For families with children, childcare is provided. A free lunch is served. Love Caldwell is a grass-roots 501c3 civic organization whose mission is focused on restoring Caldwell’s presence and image in the northwest. Through active partnerships with government and local non-profits, it believes Caldwell is on its way to once again becoming the city of choice for family life in the Treasure Valley. Their method is to identify areas of concern and need and offer Caldwell citizens a chance to get involved in the simple but important process of neighbors helping neighbors. Compassion Caldwell is a catalytic event led by local citizens. It receives the bulk of its support from local people, churches, businesses and agencies. It is designed to provide compassionate services to neighbors who are underinsured and in need. Guests experience love and grace through the provision of free basic health care and social service networking.

“Although this event, Compassion Caldwell comes together through a partnership of faith-based organizations, we welcome all volunteers,’ said Sharon Porter, Treasurer of LoveCaldwell, “in fact, last year a high percentage of our volunteers were simply kind and compassionate people from all over the city. All that’s needed is a spirit of service to our community and a desire to do good.”


END OF AN ERA–Idaho Youth Games By Leora Summers, Editor

The Idaho Youth Games (IYG) has dissolved after many great years of providing an event that introduced and promoted drug-free and alcohol-free healthy lifestyle activities for kids, ages 6-18, around our state. It was a wonderful event for so many years with so many dedicated volunteers. In early days, participant numbers ran between 500-1,000 and there were up to 200 volunteers for the event. Times changed and the numbers of participants and volunteers dwindled. It is sad to see it over. The last big hurrah for the Idaho Youth Games organization

came when it dispersed its remaining funds of $13,010 this last month to benefit Caldwell schools as follows: Six Caldwell elementary schools ($1,085 each for Wagons Ho program), Washington Elementary ($500/ Oregon Trail Project), CHS ($1,000 to band and orchestra program), $1000 to Exchange Football, and $1,000 each to CHS football, softball, and girls and boys soccer. Many thanks to all who dedicated their time, money and efforts into this legendary event. It is truly the end of an era for Caldwell and the state of Idaho.

PEO Chapter House went back to the more original two-toned colors that it was painted back in 1910. “This is an exciting time at the P.E.O.Chapter House. We have worked for three years to acquire funding through Idaho Gives to paint our mansion. For more than a month, Hamilton Painting has worked to prepare this old house for its face lift. Now we are no longer the white mansion on Logan. One hundred and five years ago when the house was built it was two colors and now we

are taking it back to that. The beautiful features of the house will now stand out. Today is the beginning of a new day. “This Ole House” is looking great. Thanks to all who have helped make this possible. The P.E.O. Chapter House is proud to have been a part of Caldwell for 64 years as a independent retirement community for P.E.O. members and their spouses.”

The B-17 sat silent for most of the time that I was at the Caldwell Industrial Airport with a crowd of people milling around and talking with awe-inspired reverence. I was there for my chance at experiencing history, flying on the super fortress and hopefully recapturing a little of that glory. Being one of the younger people there had its advantage, as I was recruited to help “walk the props” in preparation for flight. This is simply manually rotating the props a total of three turns in order to drain any accumulated oil that may have built up in the cylinders and could cause the engine to lock up when attempting to start. After that we went through a preflight briefing and then were assigned seats to adjust our harnesses and wait for the clearance to fly. The pilots were waiting for a signal from the Caldwell Night Rodeo that would allow us to fly over the stadium at precisely the correct time following the “National Anthem.” While we sat on the tarmac, the engines idled and the anticipation rose, the smell of the exhaust and the voices of the passengers trying to be heard above the engines is as close as I will come to feeling the way the kids (18 – 25 year olds) that flew on these magnificent airplanes must have felt waiting for their own clearance in World War II. The veterans told war stories of WWII and Vietnam that reinforced my belief that I was blessed to live in this country where men and women go willingly to face dangers that the rest of us can only imagine. I listened as a strong man fought back tears as he remembered his experience being the last line of defense for a hospital and not able to make out the sand bags in front of him in the intense darkness, much less the enemy in the distance. There were stories of flight crews that made one run on a borrowed bomber and never made it back to base, the entire crew gone in a flash and a heartbeat. There were more stories of barely

“This Ole House” Gets A Face Lift! “ALUMINUM OVERCAST” Flies Over Rodeo By Darlene Harryman, PEO House Manager

making it home after losing engines and running low on fuel. Stories that could only make me wonder why one’s destiny was so different than the next. The thin aluminum walls of the plane, the Plexiglas windows, the cables that ran the length of the interior, attached on one end to the wheel and pedals on the flight deck and the other to the flaps and rudder were all reminders of the era in which this plane was constructed. Forty years after the Wright Brothers first flew; the mechanical technology was standard setting for its day and amazing to me for its simplicity. The telephone I used to video the flight was considerably more advanced than the machine I was flying aboard! The flight was beautiful. Even as the smoke from nearby fires hung over the valley, the view from above was breathtaking. The time airborne (much too short) and the history lesson so indelibly planted in my memory was but a reminder of the knowledge we lose every day as the greatest generation goes to their next glory station and we are left in peace to admire and wonder about their sacrifice, and the sacrifices of the succeeding generations of veterans and their machine. Editor’s Note: To see Michael’s video footage of his flight over the rodeo on the “Aluminum Overcast,” go to Caldwell Perspective’s facebook page.

Mr. & Mrs. Shane Sullivan

By Leora Summers, Editor

That’s what they said, but in different words to remember that no one will ever forget, before family and friends present on August 15th at the beautiful College of Idaho amphitheater. Nicole Stevenson became the wife of Shane Sullivan on that date with friend, Chris Stout, officiating. You saw her before in the July edition at a shower in her honor as a “toilet paper bride.” The setting for this wedding was significant as this is where the two of them met, where Shane proposed, and now where they got married. One only wonders what they will do there next! Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Shane Sullivan!

September is Baby Safety Month

By Steve Blados, Clinical Education Supervisor at Canyon County Paramedics

The month of September is known as National Piano Month and Better Breakfast Month. More importantly though, September is also known as Baby Safety Month. Instead of writing about all aspects of safe practices around a baby, I decided to write about the dangers of leaving a baby, or any child for that matter, unattended in a parked motor vehicle. Fortunately, there are very few parents nowadays who would even consider purposely leaving their child inside a vehicle while they run an errand. Still, every year there are stories in the news media about children who were unintentionally left inside a motor vehicle. Psychologists have named this unfortunate memory lapse” Forgotten Baby Syndrome” or FBS. Mothers and fathers are more likely to forget their children if they are tired, distracted, undergoing stress, or change their typical morning routine. Many of these parents who have inadvertently left a child in a parked car even had a false memory of dropping the child off at day care. These incidents have increased since the 1990’s when recommendations were changed to place children in the back seats of cars, and then further, when car seats we made to be rear-facing. It may surprise you that most of these incidents are not drug or alcohol related. The majority of temperature increase inside a parked vehicle occurs within the first ten minutes,

and can quickly damage the child’s b r a i n , heart and muscles. A child’s body temperature rises at 3-5 times the rate of a full grown adult. To put it into perspective, running into the drug store for as few items is enough time for a child to die. How can “Forgotten Baby Syndrome” be prevented? First, make doing an interior vehicle check part of your routine when exiting the vehicle, even if you know the child is not with you. It will become a habit. Second, place an item you know you are going to take with you on the floor board of the rear seat of your vehicle. That way, you will have to open the back doors to grab your purse or briefcase. Third, make sure your child’s school or day care provider will call you if the child is not dropped off on time. With some simple steps, you can prevent this tragedy from ever happening to you. Until next month, everyone at Canyon County Paramedics wishes you and your family a happy and healthy September!

Moving Forward--Veterans Memorial Hall

Volunteers painting sealer on the foundation.

Prior to November 2013 when the City of Caldwell purchased the old Carnegie Library building (1101 Cleveland Blvd, Caldwell),most of the Veterans in our area had no place to call their own and their meetings moved around from the senior center to the library to the train depot

and back to the library. Veteran services were mostly out of Boise and difficult for many veterans to get there to receive them. After the purchase in November, the first grant requests were submitted to begin the process to transition the Carnegie Library into the Caldwell Veterans Memorial Hall. Architect drawings began in March of 2014 and in May of 2014, a lease agreement was signed with the city for $1.00 a year for the property. Liability insurance was purchased and a business plan was put into place to be able to apply for grants in June of that year. Demolition of the interior of the building began the next month. Sixty three thousand pounds of debris was removed from the building and everything was exposed in the interior walls. In September of that year the first grants were approved. The Caldwell Veterans Council opened a bank account independent of the city for their organization in October of 2014. The Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) was amended to expand the Veterans Council.

Volunteers removing old skylight. The asbestos removal has been accomplished and now the current projects include: a new roof by the first of September, expanding 11th Avenue parking, a plumbing upgrade with new water and sewer lines to be installed under the basement floor and changing overhead electrical service to an underground

service. There will be repairs and eventual modifications to include an elevator to meet American Disability Act (ADA) access requirements. Most of these projects are targeted to be completed by the end of August. So far nearly 8,000 volunteer man hours have been completed for this project and an estimated $750,000 worth of time, services and materials have been donated. The Caldwell Veterans Council’s plan is to have the front entry way, patio area and first floor ready by November 11th. Once the building is completed, all kinds of veteran programs and services will become available right here in Caldwell, like a fulltime veteran’s service officer. The plan also includes to make transportation available to take veterans to Boise when programs and services not provided here are necessary, like the VA medical facilities and others. There is still a lot more to do, but the Caldwell Veterans Memorial Hall is getting there one step at a time. The Caldwell Perspective will keep you up to date on the progress made to the

Our financial literacy class was nationally recognized recently by the Allstate Foundation, and AAFV is excited to announce that we are the only Idaho nonprofit to be accepted into the National Allstate Foundation Purple Purse Challenge! Starting October 1- 27th, AAFV will be actively participating in weekly challenges among 160 other non-profits nationwide. We are asking for our community to engage, and participate in this challenge alongside us. AAFV is looking for Team Leaders and Ambassadors to help spread awareness. AAFV wants to show the nation that Idaho cares about domestic abuse victims! The Allstate Purple Purse Challenge was born as a way to help bring awareness to financial abuse in domestic violence relationships. One in four women are victims of domestic violence, of what’s reported. 98% of those victims are also victims of financial abuse. Financial abuse is an invisible form of abuse that traps victims in an abusive situation. If you have ever wondered why a victim just doesn’t leave, this is a common way that abusers cause their victims to believe that leaving is not an option. The Challenge breakdown of events are available at www.

Caldwell Farmers Market–September

Plum Oat Muffins

By Nancy Phillips, Market

Entertainment: Sept. 2 - Spudman Sept. 9 - Jim Stewart Sept. 16 - Jim “Elvis” McDonald Sept. 23 - Mayor Garret Nancolas It’s always fun to stroll the Market, grab a bite and listen to the entertainment. If you bring this article to the market information booth, you will be entered into a raffle for a $25.00 market gift card. So come on down for some “farm to table” produce, craft items, food and more and enjoy the music.

Local Dirt Perspective Fall and Winter Planning Yes it is still in the 90’s, and the days are still longer than the nights. So planning for fall shut down and getting a good start on spring is hopefully what I’ll accomplish here. Life keeps moving at break neck speeds. If you haven’t started your compost pile yet, now is a good time. As it gets cooler you’ll want to start lowering the height of your lawn. First make sure your blade is sharp, even have a back up blade. Your lawn is very thick and a sharp blade cuts easier and saves your engine. Lower just a notch on the deck, maybe mow first, then lower the deck and mow again eventually bringing the height of the lawn to a height of 1 to 1 1/2 inches tall. This is the best height to winter your lawn. Collect the clippings and put in a pile in your garden. Keep doing this each week and lowering every couple weeks until the end of season. You should have a nice pile by then with leaves and all. As you shorten your lawn, the grass has too much volume for the turf to take in and you get heavy build up which will suffocate

your lawn. If you don’t have a garden or space for compost find a neighbor that could use your clippings, why waste them in the city dump? Composting is easy. It requires 4 elements (green waste-50 parts, brown waste-1 part, some moisture, air) and manual labor. Think of it as a cheap gym membership. Turn every week at least to loosen up and keep air integrated into the pile. You’ll notice a lot of heat and steam. This is very good. You can keep adding to the pile. Just get it thoroughly mixed in with the rest. Winter time is a great time for making compost because of all the green and brown waste available and all the holiday cooking you’re about to embark on. All those vegetable peelings and scraps, egg shells, coffee grounds and even newspapers (but not the slick printed pages) make great composting materials. Do this over the winter and you’ll have great black mulch for your needs. If you don’t want to fuss with the pile, do a layering on your garden. Just spread the waste materials, green and brown, over your garden beds in even layers. Then in the spring, you just plant right through the layers. Until next time Pat.

Nikki Zachary presented DL Evans, the 1st place prize for the bull decorating contest (bull made and designed by Bonnie Greenwood). It earned their company skybox seats for a night at the CNR. CNR board member, the award was accepted by Jim Thomssen (Caldwell Branch Manager) and Duane Alexander (Nampa’s 12th Avenue Branch Manager, Vice President and Agricultural Loan Officer). Prestige Living (Autumn Winds) was awarded 2nd place receiving a $100 gift certificate to Stewarts Bar and Grill. Vallivue School District was awarded 3rd place receiving a $100 gift certificate to Stewarts Bar and Grill and Caldwell Transportation receiving an honorable mention. Over 7,000 votes were sent in to deem the winners of this contest. That’s a lotta bull for one town! This event truly connects businesses in support of such a great community event! Thanks Theresa and Caldwell Chamber for all you do for our community!

Caldwell Fine Arts Executive Director Sylvia Hunt - 53 years with the organization

Submitted Press Release

On October 14, 1962, The American Symphony Orchestra performed in the newlycompleted Jewett Auditorium on The College of Idaho Campus. Sylvia Hunt, a newly-graduated C of I alum, was in the audience for that inaugural concert of the Caldwell Fine Arts Series. Since then, she has attended more than 430 performances in Jewett Auditorium, served on the Board of Directors of Caldwell Fine Arts, began an Educational Outreach program that has touched tens of thousands of children, and supervised the growth of Caldwell Fine Arts as Executive Director since 1981.

This month marks another important milestone for Sylvia Hunt; her retirement from that position. She will actively

continue with Caldwell Fine Arts as Director of Community Relations, and will still be a familiar face at concerts and community events. “It will be different to be a helper instead of a director….not every waking moment will include CFA in my thoughts! In the paper I read about Paul Nettleton of Joyce Ranch passing the responsibility on to his sons. He said, ‘Cowboys don’t retire, they just slow down.’ I will be slowing down, but will continue as part of the team which includes Alison Moulton, Nancy Smith, and Wendy Heidrich.” Sylvia’s legacy can be found in the survival of Caldwell Fine Arts through the recession, when hundreds of other organizations closed their doors. It can be found in the world-class artists that have graced the stage at Jewett. But it especially can be found in the words of students who have changed because of the love of the arts Sylvia brought to their lives. One student who felt that influence was local singer and recording artist Katie Lootens. “Being a shy and imaginative little girl with no interest in sports, I yearned for a way to express my creativity. Thanks to the educational outreach program Caldwell Fine Arts offers to students around the Treasure Valley, I had the opportunity to

Avalon Antiques Open Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

be exposed to the arts at a young age. I distinctly remember the excitement I felt when I saw Sylvia Hunt at my school, knowing that there would be a performance to come! She brought programs like Faustwork Mask Theater, Idaho Dance Theater, and the Golden Dragon Acrobats of China to my school, and sparked my creativity. Even today, Caldwell Fine Arts is still in my life, inspiring me with each program they bring to Jewett Auditorium.” Another student who benefitted from Caldwell Fine Art is Amber Barnes. Amber states, “From a young age CFA spurred my desire for artistry and creativity through performing arts. CFA planted the seed and gave me the ‘dream’ of dancing onstage one day. As a young patron the performances taught me, unknowingly, about drive, dedications, hard work and lessons that I use daily in my real life dream as a dancer and educator. From patron to professional, CFA was a vital part of nurturing my passion for dance.” Amber owns The Dance Academy in Star and serves as the Caldwell Fine Arts dance instructor for local students performing in the Nutcracker Ballet. Experiences like this have motivated Sylvia to preserve live performance in our community, even though much of society has become screen-focused. “I think that a concert experience has a special distinction not available through media and personal entertainment systems. Martina Filjak, a Cleveland International Piano Competition Winner who played twice in Jewett said: ‘What I love and find amazing about music is that people can record images and sound, but nobody can yet record a smell, a touch or that special something in the air. They cannot record an emotion, or a feeling, but a good artist can transmit it from a composer that died 150 years ago or lives today. Isn’t that amazing?’ I don’t think there is anything like live performance.” The new Executive D i r e c t o r, Alison Moulton, is excited to keep bringing the arts to Caldwell. She began serving on the Board of CFA in

524 Cleveland Blvd. Suite 130 • Caldwell, Idaho


2009, and has been Assistant Director since 2011. Alison began the popular Nutcracker Ballet Clara’s Tea Party, instituted online tickets sales, oversaw a website makeover, and has focused on reaching out to diverse community audiences. “CFA will continue on paths Sylvia has established and will present high-caliber artistic performances, with an extra emphasis on all-ages programming that the entire family can enjoy together. Our 2015-2016 season represents that focus. I recently told two very different individuals—one a 60-year-old woman, and one a 16-year-old teenage boy— about ukulele superstar Jake Shimabukuro coming in October. They were equally exuberant! I get the same reactions about Golden Dragon Acrobats’ Cirque Ziva show in January. I expect that my second grader will enjoy it as much as I will, and his grandma will enjoy it just the same. That’s the type of program I am aiming for,” said Moulton. The Caldwell Fine Arts Team also includes a new Director of Education, Nancy Smith. She is a well-seasoned educator in both public and charter schools, and at the College level. She is also the former Outreach Coordinator for the Boise Philharmonic. Nancy is excited to keep inspiring local children to appreciate the arts. Wendy Heidrich completes the team as Director of Operations. She recently moved to Idaho from Maryland, where she began a theatre company from the ground up and worked extensively in arts administration. She brings a wealth of experience to the job.

CFA’s New Director of Operations

T h e Caldwell Fine Arts Center is pleased to announce their new Director of Operations, Wendy Heidrich. Wendy brings with her many years of experience to this position. She just recently arrived here with her family from St. Mary’s County, Maryland. She began her acting career at an early age, when her parents involved her in Community Theatre. She studied Drama and Dance, worked in non-union film, television and commercial spots. When living in Los Angeles, she earned enough screen credits to achieve her Screen Actor’s Guild membership. Wendy has also worked on the production side of the industry, and was privileged enough to work with such amazing Directors as Rob Reiner, Gary Marshall, Stephen Spielberg, and Michael Ritchie. She also worked on the hit T.V. show Lois & Clark for 3 seasons and as a personal assistant to Teri Hatcher and her husband Jon Tenney. Wendy has a multitude of experience in many different aspects of theater and in many different places throughout the U.S. and Switzerland. She has produced, adapted and directed many theatre productions. Her experience with Signature Theatre encouraged her to form a theatre group, The Newtowne Players, a 501c 3 nonprofit community theatre organization, in St. Mary’s County when she lived there. Wendy was instrumental in the negotiations to lease the Lexington Memorial Park Library for the theatre group. The Newtowne Players recently celebrated their 10th Anniversary season. Wendy has also been very active in the educational aspects that the arts provide to children, has worked as the Arts Administrator for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Washington and has worked closely with many arts organizations in the Greater Washington and D.C. Wendy is thrilled to be working for a wonderful organization such as the Caldwell Fine Arts Center. “It brings together everything I have learned over my lifetime working in the Arts. I get to work with talented artists from all over, and CFA also incorporates educational programs as well. It’s everything I love to do! I couldn’t be happier,” said Wendy.

During the August 17th meeting, the Caldwell City Council approved the proposed 2016 city budget for $63,634,337.00 presented to them by Mayor Garret Nancolas with about $8.6 million more being spent than the $55 million budgeted. Of the $55 million budgeted, $40 million comes from fees, building permits, fines and forfeitures, and $15 million more is covered by the increased income from new businesses, additional annexed properties, and the increase in assessed value of current properties. The excess is being covered by some federal grants, some other special project funds and the city’s fund balance from prior years. There are two major projects at the sewer treatment plant that will cost $13 million over the next few years. One project calls to increase the capacity of the plant for new growth. The other project is to fund the changes needed to comply with the EPA regulations regarding new federal requirements for phosphorous control. This money is coming out of city’s fund balance, money that has been saved from prior years,

and will not come from the current proposed budget. No levies will be necessary to fund these projects. It is ironical that no federal funds are available to help fulfill the new federal regulations... The Caldwell Industrial Airport’s projects are being funded at 90% by the federal government, with the state funding 7%, leaving the remainder of $1.3 million to be funded by the city. From the “street fund,” a new roundabout will be developed at Lake Avenue and Ustick beginning in the summer of 2016. The widening of 21st Avenue will begin the fall of 2015 and will be federally funded. City employees, the folks who stayed through the difficult years of no raises, will finally see a 3% pay increase in this budget. The rest was said to be “business as usual.” To see the approved budget in its entirety, go to the city’s website at: finance and look under “Budget and Finance Information. The next city council meeting will be held on September 8th at the Caldwell Police Department in the Community Room at 7 p.m. Seeking re-election this fall is Shannon Ozuna (Seat 4). Additional candidates that have filed at this time are Chris Allgood (Seat 5), Magda Ruano (Seat 5), and Chuck Stadick (Seat 6). The cut-off date for filing is September 4th. The election will be held on November 3rd.

By the time you read this, we’ll know more about the huge stock market drop at the end of August 2015. We’ll be settled into the “new normal” (possibly) and continuing with our investment plans even after the reminder that our 401(k)s and IRAs and other retirement accounts are – or can be, extremely volatile. Always invest with that in mind, know your tolerance for risk and know your time horizon. If this is money you are going to need in the next few years, move it into safer investments such as government bonds and even cash. The loss in interest will be offset by the gain in stability. Times like these are also a reminder of the need to diversify. Possibly have some of your money in real estate (your home is not an investment) and some in some other asset group such as precious metals or collectibles. Remember that these groups are not as easily disposed of when money becomes tight. We’ve talked about annuities in this column before and you know they have their good and bad points. It helps to find a good advisor and listen! The key as stated above is to know yourself and invest with your sanity in mind.

Well Hello Dollie!

Kathy Christensen, at last year’s Hello Dollie Show at the Our Lady of the Valley Catholic Church. Every year proceeds from the show supports one or two community charities. Caldwell’s “Hello Dollie” doll club has been a mainstay in our community since 1979. The hobby of porcelain doll making had been sweeping the nation, and by the l980s, women and men enrolled in classes where they created their own versions of antique and modern bisque dolls. Daisy Gushwa held such classes in her Caldwell workshop next to her home where porcelain doll parts were molded, fired in a kiln, painted and assembled into beautiful works of art. Diana

Robertson, Esther Tiegs and Flo Trudell were among the early members of the Hello Dollie club. Throughout the years, the highlight of the club’s activities has been our annual community doll show and sale. Caldwell old-timers might remember when the shows were held each year at the Caldwell Armory. Back then, as many as 60-80 tables would be laden with dolls and teddy bears for sale. Also, themed displays and doll identification were part of the shows.

Clubs By Kathy Christensen

Today, club members’ interests have moved away from making dolls to now include a potpourri of doll and doll-related collecting ranging from antique bisques, 1920-1930s compositions, hard plastics nd modern vinyls. Other interests include famous doll artists and celebrity dolls that include: Shirley Temple, Betsy McCall, Miss Revlon, and Barbie. Currently, our club meets every third Saturday at Caldwell’s Faith Lutheran Church for a pot luck luncheon, doll-related programs, and show & tell. Our members arrive from all over the valley (Middleton, Ontario, Boise, Nampa, Parma, Emmett and Caldwell). Anyone interested in joining the Hello Dollie Club is welcome to call Betty Lee at 957-3689 or Kathy Christensen at 454-2518 for further information. We are planning to continue as a main-stay in Caldwell for many more years to come.

Silver Lining – At What Cost?

The recent fires in the Owyhee Mountains known as the “Soda Fire,” caused the most beautiful sunsets that I have ever seen. I guess you could say that “for every dark cloud, there is a silver lining,” but at what cost? There were some awful losses of cattle, other animals, and ranch acres that went along with this fire. I watched nightly for 3 nights from different spots as the fire doubled and tripled in size. This was deemed the largest fire in the U.S. at the time, burning over 280,000 acres across Idaho and eastern Oregon before being contained at 95%.

Owyhee Cattlemen’s Benefit

Join Indian Creek Steakhouse and several other individuals and organizations in their efforts to help the Owyhee Cattlemen’s Association overcome the devastation of the recent Soda fire. Join them in downtown Caldwell, October 3rd, for a street dance and live and silent auctions. Dance to the music of Buckin’ Country and enjoy a fantastic dinner. All proceeds will directly benefit those suffering a loss in the fire. Watch the Indian Creek Steak House facebook for updates on this spectacular benefit as more auction items are added daily! If you would like to participate, donate an auction item, or have an idea that would make this more successful, please call Indian Creek Steakhouse at 459-4835. Do your part to help these proud families overcome an impossible situation and have a great time doing it!




Controversy Addressed by Leora Summers We answered “over or under” last month regarding how the toilet paper should be put on the dispenser. This month, the burning question is should the openings of the pillow cases be placed to the inside or to the outside of the bed. After reviewing pillow etiquette, I found the answer to be that the openings should point to the outside. The reasoning was that if there was embroidery on the opening side, it would be shown off on the outside and for monogrammed cases, letters

would not be upside down. An irrational fear that a spider might crawl out of the pillowcase caused an “outside vote,” reasoning that if cases faced the inside of the bed, the spider would have to crawl over the occupants to leave the bed, but if the pillow cases faced to the outside, the spider could simply crawl out of bed without crawling over the people. Now aren’t you glad I looked this up for you? How are you going to arrange your pillows tonight?

Answer: Tremoloa

not much of an investment, but would make an interesting wall hanger.

Sylvia’s Tremoloa Story

A Healthy Lunch

It’s a Hawaiian Tremoloa. It’s sort of a cross between a zither, an autoharp and a slide guitar. It was invented in the United States during the 1920’s to produce the sound of the increasing popularity of Hawaiian music during that time. They were made between the 1920s through the 1950s. It simulated the sound of the Hawaiian steel guitar. On one side you played chords while you moved the swinging arm along a melody string which could be made to produce a tremulo sound by wiggling the arm a little, thus giving it its name. It has an attached pick to pluck out a melody along the melody string. The patent was granted to Harold Finney and John H. Large in 1932. They are worth between $50-$100,

Best Seller Book Review:

August “What is This?” Winner-- Sylvia Carcich

September’s Question Guess Where This Is?


I have the one that belonged to my father. A traveling salesman named Joe Mahoney came to my Grandfather’s house in Montrose, Colorado, selling them in 1948. My Dad’s baby sister, Mary, was about 19. Joe flirted shameslessly with her and she with him. She begged her father to buy one of these musical instruments for her and promised to learn to play it, so he bought one. The next day Joe stopped by the house again, Grandpa was gone and long story short, Joe and Aunt Mary eloped! My Dad paid his father for the Tremola and he learned to play it, and my sister and I did as well. Uncle Joe and Aunt Mary were married for many years, until he died, she is living in Austin, TX. My father died in 1994 and the Tremola went to my older sister who passed it on to me shortly before she died. It is like a combination steel guitar and 12 string guitar. It takes a lot of concentration and coordination to play! Sylvia Carcich of Sylvia’s Design Photography

Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee

Review by Ellen Batt

A good book entertains and informs the reader. Nearly everyone who was in high school during the past forty years has read and seen To Kill a Mockingbird. Harper Lee’s newly published Go Set a Wa t c h m a n is a thoughtprovoking revisit to the southern t o w n , Macomb, Georgia. In this novel Jean Louise Finch (Scout) is now twenty-six, and she travels from New York City for a two-week vacation with her family in her hometown. Harper Lee’s rich descriptions of characters illuminate memories of Scout’s childhood and school years with Jem, Dill and the neighborhood, bringing some delightful laughs. Readers will recognize familiar characters and locations introduced before. Atticus ailing with arthritis, has his sister Aunt Alexandra (still trussed in her whalebone corsets), living with him to help around the house after Calpurnia retired. The tomboy Scout retains her independent nature. Unlike her “proper lady” classmates whose goal was to marry and stay in Macomb, she chose a career in the big city and

is viewed as an old maid by her former friends. Scout reconnects with an old beau and Uncle Jack. Her brother, Jem has died from the same heart condition that took their mother when they were young. Memories of a childhood re-enactment of a revival meeting, a disastrous interpretation of the facts of life, and a first prom will generate laughs and memories. Every adult has had that moment, when returning to a childhood location or experience, of a surprisingly new perspective. All have questioned or criticized our own parents about values and choices. Go Set a Watchman is that classic story. Scout sees Atticus through adult eyes. Current promotional coverage tells us he is a bigot. Nobody wants to believe it. It’s true. The how and why of this story remind us of how issues in current national news are generational. Why they are difficult to resolve becomes evident. This is a much shorter novel than To Kill a Mockingbird, but it may be an incentive to read it again. Readers will discover an entirely different novel from the one they read in school. Prepare to be entertained! Prepare to read Mockingbird again! This time without quizzes and essays….

“Not Important...But Possibly Of Interest” Submitted photo

The other day, some former members of the military were reminiscing on line about MREs. That acronym stands for “Meals Ready to Eat.” Nowadays, soldiers can choose from some two dozen different MRE meals (including vegetarian dishes). Pretty much all one has to do is add hot water and serve. This writer never encountered MREs during more than a decade in the military. They became available to the troops in 1981 – just as I was hanging up my stripes. My generation of troopers had to satisfy our hunger when in the field with “Cs.” “Cs,” known officially as C rations, were developed during World War II. Each ration came in a light brown box. Inside the box were several cans and packages. There weren’t a whole lot of main course choices. One was “Spaghetti and Meatballs.” Another was “Lima Beans and Ham” (which included some small potatoes). “Beans and

Weenies” were tolerable. My personal favorite was “Ham and Eggs, Chopped.” Each “C” also included a can of some sort of fruit, maybe a package of hot chocolate mix, cheese or peanut butter and crackers, a dessert, and a package containing five cigarettes (yes Virginia, cigarettes). Individual troopers had their personal C ration likes and dislikes. When they were distributed, there was a lot of trading. For instance: a smoker might swap his cheese and crackers for extra smokes. Fruit was always a valuable trading commodity. Because I liked “Ham and Eggs, Chopped” -- which few people did like -- I often got an extra can without having to trade anything. Each item in a C ration had its quirks. One of the desserts was pound cake that wasn’t bad under the right circumstances. But veterans knew you shouldn’t eat pound cake during desert maneuvers, when it was 105 degrees, because the cake would suck every drop of moisture out of your body in about 10 seconds. And one should never

By Wayne Cornell

throw an unopened can of C ration peanut butter into a campfire because it can explode. If boiling peanut butter hits your skin, you can’t wipe it off fast enough to prevent some fairly serious burns. The C rations were designed to be heated by immersing the cans in hot water. I preferred eating mine cold. As I said, I liked “Ham and Eggs, Chopped” – but only if it was cold. If it was hot, the egg whites separated from everything else and didn’t look very appetizing. The original C ration was replaced in 1958 with the “Meal Combat Individual” (MCI). But it was pretty much impossible to tell the difference between the two, so we continued to call all of them “Cs.” MREs are supposed to have a shelf life of at least three and a half years. I don’t think we ever saw a C ration less than five years old and on occasion, we encountered some that dated to the late 1940s. The main difference between the old “Cs” and the new “Cs” was the cigarettes in the older ones didn’t have filters.

Book Review

By Amy Perry Rubaiyat Book Store

“The Cornerstones of Idaho Sports: A Collection of Essays By Selected Sportswriters & Myron Finkbeiner” The Cornerstones of Idaho Sports A Collection of Essays By Selected Sportswriters & Myron Finkbeiner Myron Finkbeiner, a Nampa native, completed his under graduate studies at Northwest Nazarene College and earned his M.S. from the University of Oregon. He enjoyed a 25 year career as a coach. The Cornerstones of Idaho Sports is his third book. The Cornerstones of Idaho Sports is a marvelous collection of sports history. Finkbeiner has stories about both sports greats and lesser known sportsmen from Idaho during the 1900s. This is a well written, highly researched chronicle of Idaho sports. Anyone interested in sports will recognize some of the names in this volume and be surprised by others. I would recommend it to anyone interested in sports, history or Idaho.
