College of Idaho Coach Moroski

Football season is here and the College of Idaho is poised for their biggest year on the gridiron since the sport returned to the campus in 2014. A veteran team, mixed with a talented group of underclassmen have the Coyotes picked to win the Frontier Conference title and are ranked No. 15 in the NAIA Preseason Top-25 poll. If you haven’t made the drive to Simplot Stadium on a Saturday to watch Coyote Football – here are five reasons one should. 1. OVER 100,000 FANS HAVE WATCHED THE YOTES: The Coyotes have played 26 home games since 2014, with C of I leading all NAIA teams during the 5-year stretch in

The Yotes Need You!

attendance. The Yotes led the NAIA in attendance during the 2016 and 2017 seasons, with over 5,000 fans attending games on three occasions. A total of 103,945 fans have attended a C of I game since the rebirth – an average of nearly 4,000 fans per game. 2. FAMILY FUN / FAMILY PRICES AND YES, HAVE A BEER: C of I games have been a family atmosphere from Day 1. It starts with ticket prices that are reasonable ($13 for adults, $11 for kids/seniors) – with a family able to watch the Yotes for less than one ticket to a Boise State game. The day starts at the Tailgate Zone at the J.A. Albertson Activities Center, with the Yotes walking mingling with the fans on their

walk to Simplot Stadium. Once at the stadium, fans will have a great variety of concessions, provided by local service clubs – and yes, the Caldwell Night Rodeo offers a Beer Garden for those of legal drinking age, with end zone seating available to watch the game. 3. IT’S DYNAMIC FOOTBALL: You will see some outstanding players and outstanding football every Saturday at Simplot Stadium. The Yotes have scored at least 28 points in eight of their last nine home games – including 40-or-more points six times. Quarterback Darius-James Peterson is quite possibly the most dynamic college player in the State of Idaho and one of the most-feared

offensive threats in the NAIA – having rushed for 2,700 yards and passed for 4,400 yards in his career. Bruising running back Nick Calzaretta is a workhorse, speedy Hunter Juarez averaged over 25 yards a catch in 2018, with Connor Richardson one of the top possession receivers in the Frontier Conference. Defensively, the Yotes have a pair of 4-year starters in corner Tristen Alesi, who had five interceptions in 2018, and two-time all-conference linebacker Forrest Rivers. 4. SUPPORT IDAHO PLAYERS: A total of 50 players from the Gem State fill the Coyote roster, including 38 players from the Treasure Valley alone. Kids from nearly

every 4A and 5A program in the Treasure Valley are on the Coyote roster – along with players from Homedale, Jordan Valley, Adrian, Horseshoe Bend, Cambridge and Council. 5. THIS IS YOUR TEAM: Caldwell and Canyon County, this is your team and the Yotes are proud to be a part of our community. Wear your Purple, have fun at Simplot Stadium, cheer until you can’t cheer more. The Coyotes are proud of our community and we want the community to be proud of the Yotes. We look forward to seeing you at Simplot Stadium for Homecoming 2019 – Sept. 14 vs. rival Southern Oregon, with kickoff set for 1 p.m.

“Compassion Caldwell” Offers Free Medical and Dental Services to Local Families

On Saturday, September 7, LoveCaldwell, a local civic service organization will host its sixth annual free one-day health clinic and social services fair at Elevate Academy Charter School in Caldwell. “Compassion Caldwell” offers free medical, dental, health and hygiene services as well as life coaching, food, clothing, prayer and other necessities. Representatives from a variety of social service agencies including the Idaho Food Bank will be available on-site to assist families and individuals with unmet needs in finding free or low-cost services. The clinic will be held from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM at Elevate Academy Charter School, located at 114 W Chicago Street in Caldwell. LoveCaldwell is a grass-roots 501c3 civic organization whose mission focuses on rebuilding Caldwell’s prominence in the northwest. Through active partnerships with government and similar area non-

profit groups, LoveCaldwell believes its city is a highly motivated, active and compassionate community and the best mid-sized city for families in the Treasure Valley. It works to identify areas of social concern and unmet needs in the community, and offers concerned citizens a way to get involved in the important process of neighbors helping neighbors. The Compassion Caldwell event receives the majority of its support from local people, churches, and West Valley Medical Center. The event is structured to provide caring service to neighbors, many of whom are under-insured and in distress. “Our guests experience honest love and care as we work to meet the most basic health needs. And because we can’t provide everything we’d like in a one day event, we partner with other local social service agencies. It’s much more convenient for those in need to find everything under one roof, and in their very own neighborhood,” explained CompassionCaldwell director, Lorene Oates. “Although this event, Compassion Caldwell

comes together through a partnership of faith-based organizations, we welcome all volunteers, 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,” commented Oates. “Over the first five years, nearly fifteen hundred Caldwell area volunteers served nearly 1,800 guests who formally registered, as well as many others who chose not to leave information or happened to come with other family members. Every year is different, though, and CompassionCaldwell expects another big turnout,” If you would like to help serve at this year’s event, volunteers are needed to serve on one of fifteen Service Teams helping facilitate the event. The volunteer website can be reached at www.compassioncaldwell. org. and you can register on-line. For more information please email

September 2019 When Titus Fay asked his girlfriend Sarah Overcast to take a drive up to Idaho City August 17, 2019 for a relaxing day she had no idea what the day would bring. Titus had spent months planning his proposal and for days following receiving her parents blessing he carried the special ordered ring tucked in a beautiful box in the pocket of his pants. In the mountains, Titus found the perfect bend in the road to pull over and present Pickles Butte Sanitary Landfill is hosting a free household hazardous waste and electronic waste disposal event on Wednesday, September 11 in the parking lot of O’Connor Field House in Caldwell.

City of Caldwell Welcomes Chelsea Wilson to the Team The City of Caldwell is excited to announce the addition of the new Communications Specialist to our team! Chelsea Wilson brings experience from the political arena that includes policy research and analysis, lobbying, campaign work, and social media management. She began her career working on campaigns for the state of California, where she played an integral role in communications with multiple candidates during the 2018 statewide elections.

Shortly thereafter, she moved to Idaho where she worked for a local lobbying firm during the 2019 Legislative session. There she expanded her legislative network while researching and lobbying for a wide array of topics, such as taxation, healthcare and municipal issues. As the City of Caldwell continues to grow and expand its opportunities for new and current residents, its need for keeping residents well informed

has become increasingly urgent. Chelsea will work directly with Mayor Nancolas, City Council members, press, and other city officials to insure that information pertaining to the public is accurate and easily accessible. She will also work with the state legislature to ensure Caldwell’s unique needs are addressed. Caldwell is an exciting hub of activity, from family events at Indian Creek Plaza to the upcoming Caldwell

Night Rodeo, and we are eager to welcome Chelsea to the team!

called Caldwell, Idaho. If you had the opportunity to attend the Buckaroo Breakfast you were among the 3,000 people that came to eat a great breakfast the week of August 13 - 17, enjoy some amazing entertainment and of course the kids craft area is always fun. Last month I wrote about my families saying “Many hands make light work”. As time was drawing near for the kickoff of the breakfast it was easy to stress about all the things that needed to be done. Do we have enough volunteers? Will we have enough food to make it

by Gail Nordby, Caldwell Chamber Project and Events Coordinator

through the entire event? Did we roll enough silverware? Yes, we even have to find a volunteer to roll 3,500 rolls of cutlery, and every year we have a great team that steps up to do it. One of the things we don’t think about are the people behind the scene that make this event run. We are blessed to have an amazing committee that meets to discuss how we can make each year better and better. They take time out of their busy schedule of life because they love Caldwell that much. Each day kicks off at 3:45 in the morning to start the

grills so that we will be ready for people to start showing up at 6:30am and let’s not forget those that stay until the very end of their shift to clean the grills, put everything away and clean up so we can be ready to do it all over again the next day. “Many hands make light work.” To the police, fire department, marines and all the local businesses who came out to volunteer, we cannot say thank you enough for everything you did to make the 85th annual Caldwell Chamber of Commerce Buckaroo Breakfast a success. To the families, businesses

Devin Riley’s Cop Stop

and to those that came from all over just to eat breakfast. Thank you. I am proud to live and work in Caldwell and look forward to what next year will hold. What’s next for the Caldwell Chamber of Commerce? The Farm to Fork Dinner on the Creek, September 6th and the 17th Annual Treasure Valley Night Light Parade, December 7th. The parade theme for this year is “Christmas in Toyland”. Applications are now available at the Chamber. The Caldwell Chamber of Commerce would like to thank everyone who participated in the 2019 Buckaroo Breakfast.

Have you ever planned a birthday party or invited all your friends and family to a wedding? The stress of making sure everything is perfect down to the last detail. Imagine not having a clue how many people would show up, unsure of how much food to order, how many plates and cutlery to have on hand. Let’s not forget making sure you have good entertainment, and people to cook and serve the food. This is the joy of planning the Caldwell Chamber of Commerce Buckaroo Breakfast. What’s that old saying “It takes a village”? I’m honored to live and work in this village

Back to School Safety Guidelines

As children head back to school, they and their parents have lots to do to be ready for the first days of school. Clothing and supplies may be top priorities, but families also should focus on safety as the first day of school draws close. The following are some key tips families can keep in mind to ensure a healthy and happy upcoming school year. School bus safety The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that school buses are the safest way for children to

travel to and from school. The majority of school bus-related injuries occur while students are boarding and getting off the bus. Over the last 10 years, the NHTSA says nearly two-thirds of school-age pedestrians who were fatally injured by school buses or other vehicles were hurt after being struck while entering or exiting the bus. While at the bus stop, children must remember to stay at least five large steps away from the road and wait to board until the driver says so. When leaving the bus, students should make sure there is no oncoming traffic and wait for a signal from the bus driver before crossing busy streets. While on the bus, observe the rules and stay seated at all times. Keep the center aisle clear of backpacks. Walking/biking safety Students may walk or bike to school if the school permits.

School tends to begin during the morning rush hour, so students must exercise extreme caution when walking or biking to school. Stick to sidewalks whenever possible when walking. Cyclists should follow the rules of the road, including riding in the same direction as traffic. Choose the safest route as a family and practice it before the first day of school, advises the security company ADT. Backpack safety Choose an ergonomically designed backpack to enhance safety and comfort. Backpacks should weigh no more than 5 to 10 percent of the child’s body weight, advises the National Safety Council. Rolling backpacks should be avoided since they are a tripping hazard. With a new school year on the horizon, students and their parents can discuss school safety so the year starts off on the right foot.

September 2019 The Caldwell Youth Master Plan Committee is now finalizing plans for the 7th Annual Caldwell Youth Forum to be held Wednesday September 11,

The idea for the creation of the Victory medal was conceived before the war was even over. Obviously, it wasn’t a “victory” medal they were considering but a common allied medal to reflect the union of their efforts in the war. When the war ended, the major allied powers fought over the name and design of the medal. Finally it was settled to simply call it the Victory Medal. We started

7th Annual Caldwell Youth Forum

by the City of Caldwell

2019 and hosted at The College of Idaho. The goal of the Youth Forum is to bring together 85 students from 8 local high schools to provide training in

how they can make positive changes in their world. The Forum training targets the ways and means to make this happen, encouraging teens to step out of the shadows,

shake off the “bystander” role and work with peers to get things rolling. We would like to say a special THANK YOU to our financial sponsors and

community partners. They provide the foundation for this annual event, and we greatly appreciate their faithfulness in contributing to our youth.

calling it the WW1 V i c t o r y Medal after WW2 had ended. T h e color of the drape, for the various nations, were equal reflecting rainbows and that was to represent all the colors of the allied flags joined t o g e t h e r. You can see the similarity in the drapes of the medals in the photo. The medallion design would be different for each country. In the photo, left to right, the 1st row shows the Victory medals of : Japan, United States, Belgium. 2nd Row: England, Italy and Cuba. The full list of allied victory medals also includes: Brazil, Czechoslovakia, France, Greece, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, and

Siam. Appurtenances could be added for different reasons on different medals. The United States had clasps for duty or battles. In the photo is a Submarine clasp for Navy personnel assigned to a sub. The Army had a silver star device for gallantry in action. This was later upgraded to the Silver Star medal. The British engraved the recipient’s name and unit on the rim of the medal. They also had a Mentioned In Dispatch (MID) oak leaf device for personnel that were mentionead in dispatches or commended in a letter. These are just a few devices used. Some countries issued elaborate certificates to go with the medal. Here in the United States, some states and towns issued their own victory and service medals to further honor their citizens. The WW1 Victory Medals have become desirable to collectors. The rarest version of the

victory medal is the one from Siam. Only 1500 were ever made. Stop by D&J Enterprises, we have a bunch of different

victory medals and we’ll be glad to show you a few.

September 2019


In the August article I want to discuss, what’s that. It’s September? Oh brother where did August go? I know I didn’t lose it to sleep, maybe it was the anticipation of my foreign exchange student coming from Italy that has aided in losing August. Maybe but, oh well As I was saying September is the month for planning the shutting down of your landscape. First I want to talk about “Training your lawn”, most lawns are fairly flat and it doesn’t really matter what pattern you use cut your lawn by it will usually cut nice without gouging or creating ruts by repeating the same wheel marks. I generally try to change mowing patterns so I don’t create a look that you see even a week after

mowing. Of coarse bigger, wider tires help in minimizing ruts, changing patters is the best way to keep the lawn fresh looking. But I have commercial properties as well and most are either berms, sloped, long and narrow, which you can really only mow one way or, they are filled with trees planters and steep grades that have to be mowed around. Or there is just on way to mow the lawn each and every week even if it scalps or leaves the turf very short. So, mow that way each and every time so that the really short grass gets used to being cut that way and nature will adapt to its condition. I have such areas. When I take on a new acct. I remind people it will take me some weeks to figure out just how the lawn likes it’s hair cut for best look. Now to save from rutting, I make sure I get the turf area dry by cutting back water a day or two prior to mow day. Then I offset

September what a splendid month the hot days of August may linger on for a bit longer but the shorter days of September bring relief from the hot August nights. The air conditioner gets a break from constant toil and the beverages in my garage fridge are a little colder. Although frost may be six weeks in the future, shorter days start to bring fall splendor to many Treasure Valley

locations, most notably cottonwoods will still hold their leaves while turning a brilliant yellow, ash and maple can also produce early fall colors. A spectacular month for outdoor enthusiasts: On September 1st Forest Grouse season opens, also on the same day Morning Dove season opens, for those who like to shoulder a scatter gun your desires are about to be requited. Chukar and Gray Partridge season always opens in the middle of the month as do Quail. Be careful on the Quail many live in close proximity to humans. It looks bad for the hunting community if you are shooting someone’s pets.

Dave’s Big Back Yard

by Pat King

my wheels from the previous weeks mowing pattern so I don’t keep packing the ground with my tires causing rutting. Now as we get cooler start mowing your lawn shorter each week and collect the grass clippings and place in your garden to be till in late fall. If you don’t have a garden??? Why are you reading my column? Oh just kidding, then start one. You want to end up with a very short, you can see the dirt kinda short lawn. Believe it or not this cleans up your lawn better than almost anything else you can do, it also exposes your lawn to sun and air that aids in cleansing the soil. Leaves, blow them in to the lawn and mow them up. Because the better you chop the leaves up the better they’re mixed with grass clippings and they break down into mulch faster. Well I’ve run out of room but not tips, until next time, Pat. by Dave McCormick

As the nights cool and days shorten fishing just gets better for both warm and cold-water species. Many patterns that worked well to catch bass in the spring can be just as effective in the fall. Spinner baits buzz baits and poppers can be irresistible to both large and small mouth Bass. Early fall can be a great time to catch Trout on a dry fly. Also bait and spinners will produce fish. Keep your Humming bird feeders full for a few more weeks. There are still some locals and many stop overs on their way south.

Caldwell Elks Second Annual Deke Marmon Sporting Clay Shoot

On August 3, 2019, the Caldwell Elks Lodge hosted their Second Annual Sporting Clay Shoot at the Caldwell Gun Club Range. The namesake for this annual event was a member of the Caldwell Elks lodge, and a member of the Caldwell American Legion. He served in the Army and was deployed to Afghanistan where he was injured by an IED. He passed away in September of 2018. This year’s event was well attended by local shooters, spectators and support volunteers. The Boise Belles, a local Treasure Valley group of vintage loving ladies provided assistance in shooter check-in, door prizes, and trophy awards. The Young Marines provided parking control, shooting

station management as well as conducting the opening flag ceremony. After shooter check-in, a flag ceremony and a safety briefing, 79 shooters divided into sixteen teams and proceeded to the range. The door prizes included, boxes of shotgun shells, shell pouches, certificates for haircuts, gun cleaning kits, and many more items, ensuring every shooter a prize. The Elks fed everyone a lunch of pulled pork sandwiches, baked beans, chips and a drink. Trophies were awarded after lunch that included first, second and third high score teams, high and low score shooters and a low score team and low score individual shooter. It was good fun and we were packed up and

vacated the gun club by 2:00. The Caldwell Gun Club does everything possible to ensure the success of these fundraising events. Staff provided technical assistance as well as safety instruction to the shooters. Their newly configured sporting clay course added an exciting element to this year’s event. The course is diverse and challenging enough to entertain shooters of all skill levels. This fun-filled event raises money for our foster children and veteran support programs. The Elks participate in the Canyon County annual foster children adoption day. Elk members escort the families to the court rooms, while the adoptions are performed, take them to have pictures taken and then back to the meeting room where we provide lunch before the ceremony. We provide each family with gift baskets and gifts for each child. The Elks also host a picnic for foster children

On Thursday, September 12, 2019 Bob Christensen will present how you can’t trust wildlife. Whether it’s a mule deer, an eagle, heron, wood duck, or a gopher snake, you will always be surprised. As a wildlife biologist and observer for the last fifty plus years, I keep learning over and over again, that when dealing with wild creatures, I should always be prepared for the unexpected. During 2019, I set up motion-triggered cameras in several wildlife locations to see what kind of “wild surprises” I could uncover. With the help of several nimble, climbing friends, my first camera was placed during February, at a known bald eagle nest, 100 feet up in an ancient cottonwood tree on the east edge of Lake Lowell. In March, a second camera was easily attached to a young ash tree along a well-worn deer trail on the SE corner of Deer Flat NWR. Next, a friend and I put a camera up hoping to record any strange activities which might be associated with wildlife use of a wood duck box that we hung in a Russian olive tree growing along a small stream on his property. And lastly, this summer I waded up to my knees in muck and water to install a camera on a metal fence post firmly planted among the cattails and marsh grasses of the East Dike wetlands.

2018 Creative Kayak

A race down the creek has always been a beloved Caldwell tradition since the first Indian Creek Festival was held in September 2003. That first festival celebrated the first section of Indian Creek to be uncovered at Pioneer Plaza, a small pocket park between Arthur Ave. and Blaine St. And, that is where the first race down Indian Creek actually ended! Caldwell Fine Arts sponsored by the old Sundowner motel organized the first race, a rubber duck race, as a fundraiser. People ‘adopted’ a rubber duck for $5, then all the ducks were dumped into the creek at the motel which was located

on the corner of Arthur St. and 10th Ave., across from where the Caldwell Luxe Reel Theatre is located now. The ducks raced down the creek, underground and businesses until they appeared on the uncovered creek! The duck who made it to the festival first won a cash prize! There has been a rubber duck race every year of Indian Creek Festival by various organizations as a fundraiser and is now run by the Caldwell Schools Band Booster Club. You can ‘adopt’ your very own duck and help carry on this fun festival tradition. Band members will be walking around the festival wearing duck hats and still

On September 12th, Our Memories Indian Creek Museum will be hosting tours sponsored by The Friends of the Depot and the City of Caldwell. The museum will have hosts and hostesses in period dress to assist those

who come into the museum during the tour times 6-7 p.m. or 7-8 p.m. Contact the city of Caldwell to make your reservation. On September 17th at 6:00 p.m. the Canyon County History Board will be meeting

sell ducks for $5 (or $20 for a six-quack). Now, the ducks are dumped in the creek near the gazebo on the corner of Kimball Ave. and Blaine St. and race toward the 6th Ave pedestrian bridge. If your duck is among the first to cross the finish line, you can win up to a $200 prize! Make sure to catch the race at 1 p.m.! In 2008, when the daylighting of the rest of Indian Creek was complete, Indian Creek Festival organizers wanted to create another activity that used the creek … and the cardboard kayak festival was born! The contest requirements started, and have remained, very simple:

2003 Duck Race Promotion

participants build a kayak using only cardboard, duct tape, and for safety, racers must be at least five feet tall and wear a helmet, life jacket, and have a paddle. Over the years, kayaks have ranged from simple to elaborate. Ken Wein, one of the festival organizers over the years, recalls people simply wrapping refrigerator boxes in tape to crafting kayaks with structural integrity using multiple layers of cardboard and duct tape. Modeling kayaks after cars has also been a popular technique, a taxi and a Jeep have been seen in recent years. But, so the most successful kayaks are the ones who put a little

thought into the design. The 2018 winner had a simple kayak that was caringly wrapped and painted while the second-place winners rode a pirate ship all the way to the finish line! Make sure to see the creative and brave souls who have completed a kayak this year! You can visit the kayaks from 10 AM-1 PM at the starting line (near the gazebo on the corner of Kimball Ave. and Arthur St.) to vote for most original kayak. Then find a good spot along the creek to watch the race starting at 2 p.m.! Want to participate? Register your kayak at IndianCreekPlaza. com/indian-creek-festival

September is the Time to Visit Our Memories Museum at Our Memories Museum. Although usually a board is attended by those elected to serve on the boards for this meeting the public is also invited. During the Saturday of the Indian Creek Festival, Sept

21, we will have free recipes and samples from the Oregon Trail, samples of Lincoln Logs, free admission, and free rides to the museum from downtown Caldwell. We hope to also highlight some of our Facebook quiz winners. We

have over 30 rooms of history in this former doctor’s office, so we will welcome any visitors to this facility.

Caldwell Arts “Pure Imagination” Caldwell Fine Arts is once again sponsoring the Chalk the Block contest Saturday September 21 from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm. It’s in downtown Caldwell between Arthur and Kimball by the 7th St. bridge. The theme this year is “Pure Imagination” and there’s a twist – a real person must be incorporated into the drawing. There will be prizes in 3 age based categories and the contest is free but it’s recommended that you preregister for your space as they are limited.

September 2019 My life passed one of those milestone birthdays, I turned 60 on August 25th. Lots of people have problems with each of their milestone birthdays, 20 (maybe not so much) 30, 40, 50, and 60 are the rough ones, every one after that is a bonus! In all honesty, up until this year I had not had a problem growing older. I can’t say I embraced Another month has passed since sending my son Garrett off to Fort Benning, Georgia for Army Infantry boot camp. He has taken on his military personification and now is better known as PVT Sams RN 357. A shoe box is now filled with letters on paper of all different sizes. I can almost tell you how he was feeling at a glance by the size of his penmanship and the legibility. In some letters he says he is so tired and working hard but that he wants to make all of us proud. This past week the letters have slowed down a bit as he has completed the first phase (red phase) which is known to be very intense as the young men become familiar to their new “family” and the strict environment of boot camp. They are learning to take orders and become

However, I started counting all the advantages of turning 60 and I’m beginning to see it for the freedom it truly offers. The ability to drive for miles down the interstate with my

physically able to perform the drills. One thing has remained consistent from letter one to 101. Many of his letters read, “Mom, I miss your cooking.” The very next sentence reads: “The food is good here.” I have to admit this has given me some reservations about cooking for company. I did truly think I was a good cook. Hmmmm, not quite sure what that all means. Before leaving for Georgia he did propose to the most amazing young woman, Nimsi. The wedding cannot take place until Garrett reports to the base where he will be stationed and requests leave. She is everything I would want in a daughter and we have become so close. We laugh, cry and compare recipes, because she is a good cook


too, says Garrett. I am still actively photo stalking the Fort Benning Facebook and photo site and it is a known rule, stalk don’t talk. I am thankful for each letter delivered and treasure holding the paper in my hands knowing that my once little boy who filled the front of the refrigerator with his dreams of being an Army man held that paper preparing to be the best soldier he can be. This is an exciting month as I look ahead at my calendar. Family weekend is in mid-September and although upon his departure I told him I would not be able to make both the family weekend and then a month later graduation…I just can’t help it and where there is a will there is a way.

All of his letters bring a tear to my eyes that trail down my cheek and I have to bat my eyes to focus on the words. I am glad that time is passing by more quickly and he is now adjusted. His time is spent shooting and that he loves…I just hope the new cooking class helps me pass the time as well. Keep our military in your prayers. Thank you for taking time to read my article.

West Valley Earns Advanced Stroke Center Designation

West Valley Medical Center is now a designated Level III Stroke Center in the state of Idaho. This means the center is an advanced stroke capable hospital, providing the best care related to recognizing strokes, imaging and treatment including administration of medication for certain stroke patients and the ability to transfer patients to an interventional facility within an hour of arrival. Last fall West Valley added the position of Stroke Coordinator to the Quality/Patient Safety department. The position works in partnership with the Emergency Department, hospital leadership, as well as other organizations to implement best practices, and educates the community about the importance of early stroke detection. Stroke Coordinator Devan Trosky says stroke care is a team effort, which is why it is critical to keep colleagues

up to date on best practices. “Our team at West Valley is dedicated to providing the best care imaginable to all of our patients. I have a passion for stroke education and I am committed to creating a sense of urgency within the community because education and knowledge of stroke, really can decrease the long term deficits that a patient may experience,” said Trosky. “Our surveyors were impressed with the hardwired process we have in place. This was a team effort and we are proud to continue striving to provide the best care for our patients every day,” said Tracee Hendershott, West Valley Chief Nursing Officer. The Primary Stroke Center Certification recognizes hospitals that meet standards to support better outcomes for stroke care. Stroke symptoms include: Sudden numbness or weakness of face, leg or arm; Abrupt loss of vision;

IT TAKES A VILLAGE Caldwell Centennial Band

putting them back into place afterwards. The City of Caldwell houses us under their umbrella and the water department even lets us put notices on the water bill about our concert dates. The College of Idaho allows us to practice on their campus and allow us to have two concerts in Jewett. They are such great community members in many other ways also. Also, the Caldwell Perspective’s community calendar is a great community service that allows us to keep the citizens up on our concert dates. Caldwell is such a fantastic community. Even though the population is now 50,000 plus, we still have that small hometown feeling where people help people when it counts! Thank you everyone for supporting our Caldwell Centennial Band. “It takes a village” and we live in a great community, my community, Caldwell, Idaho!

Cody Peterman directing the Caldwell Centennial Band during the last concert of the season in August at Caldwell Memorial Park’s bandshell. It takes a community to keep something like this going on year after year. So much cooperation among people! This band has been playing on since 1990 and next year will be its 30 year of existence! FIRST, it takes a dedicated group of musicians to come to practices once a week all year long to prepare for the concerts of which there is a Christmas and a Spring Fling Concert, both in Jewett and 5 free summer concerts in the park every year, Hugo-award winning author, Mary Robinette Kowal is a novelist and professional puppeteer. Her debut novel Shades of Milk and Honey (Tor 2010) was nominated for the 2010 Nebula Award for Best Novel. In 2008 she won the Campbell Award for Best New Writer, while three of her

About 300 people attended the Centennial Band’s last concert. They were spread out under the big shade trees enjoying the music with friends and family.

with their only month off being September. These musicians come from all over the Treasure Valley. Some are in many other volunteer or paid groups and others are just folks who love to play their instrument after playing in high school currently or many years ago. They love making a “big sound” together. Neither our directors or musicians are paid and we really appreciate our directors. We honored past director Jerry Howard who recently passed

away during this last concert of the season. SECOND, there are the dedicated audience folks who come to enjoy the music. Without them, the band would dismember, for there would be no one to enjoy their music, which is the one thing that really keeps them coming together in the first place. THIRD, there are many others that support us in many ways. The Park and Recreation employees led by Vinton

short fiction works have been nominated for the Hugo Award: “Evil Robot Monkey” in 2009 and “For Want of a Nail” in 2011, which won the Hugo for short story that year. Her stories have appeared in Strange Horizons, Asimov’s, and several Year’s Best anthologies, as well as in her collection Scenting

They pick up our stands and chairs from our other partner in the Caldwell School District, Syringa Middle School, and take them to be housed at the park for our summer concerts and bring them back to the school when the series is over.

Two new groups will be meeting downtown Caldwell at the Flying M Coffee House, 724 Arthur St. The first group is a writing group, people who share an interest in writing. It will offer an opportunity for individuals to share their works and get feedback from other writers. The meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.

Kowal depicts an accurate cultural picture of the United States and other countries. I have asked about the science and my local scientist confirms that it is correct. This is an excellent alternant history, apocalypse story and I would happily recommend it to anyone, teen and up.

A second group, The Happiness Club, at 6:30 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month. The Happiness Club will discuss…well… happiness. What makes you happy; how to spread happiness and just happiness in general. Calling all people who want to let the negativity out of their lives and smile.

Page 15 CALDWELL PERSPECTIVE Living in the southern region of Idaho, we are very lucky to have a desirable climate for many different types of fruits and vegetables to grow. I enjoy the ability to grow tomatoes, peppers, and different herbs in my garden, and with the purchase of a few additional ingredients, I can preserve my own homemade salsa for yearround consumption. While I enjoy pico de gallo, a type of salsa that is made and eaten fresh with no heating applied, I am also a fan of roasted salsas that can be canned and stored on my pantry shelf to eat with chips

“Know What Is In Your Food!”

or pop into chili and stews in the fall and winter. I enjoy using this scientifically-tested salsa resource that can be accessed for free online here: CEPublications/PNW395/ PNW395.pdf. The great thing about preserving food at home is that it allows you to grow your own or select great produce from local growers, and you know exactly what ingredients you are including in your recipes and consuming. Additionally, when family members or friends have food sensitivities or allergies and need to be more aware of

what ingredients are in their food supply, you can control this with home canning. With such a variety of wonderful produce available during this time of year, University of Idaho Extension receives several calls and questions at community events regarding preserving local, fresh foods to enjoy later. This provides a great opportunity for Master Food Safety Advisors, volunteers who have been trained in food safety and food preservation knowledge and skills, to be able to answer questions and provide useful, research-based information to the public. This is important

September 2019 by Surine Greenway, University of Idaho Extension, Owyhee County

because in today’s world of the internet, it is very easy to find information quickly, but not all preserving information is reliable, and sometimes it can be downright unsafe. If you are interested in preserving some of the wonderful foods available in our region but want to make sure you are utilizing safe resources, contact your local University of Idaho Extension office for easyto-access information. If you have questions or are interested in learning more about University of Idaho Extension’s Master Food Safety Advisor Program,

please call 208-287-5900. A new training program will begin in February 2020 at the University of Idaho, Ada County Extension Office.

Elevate Academy Ribbon Cutting

On August 1st Matt Strong and Monica White cut the ribbon on their Caldwell dream. Elevate Academy is a Career Technical Education Charter School for grades 6 – 12. The school hopes to fill the very real need in our community for technicians in the welding, metal fabrication, construction management, culinary and graphic arts, nursing, fire science, and other professions. Students will be taught to a level of

certification or Associate Degree by utilizing dual credit capabilities. The Academy will operate on a year round basis with four days a week focused on traditional academic classes and one day a week directed solely to Career Tech Ed coursework. Founders joined with community stakeholders in a variety of trades and workplaces to assess what their needs are and how Elevate can help meet those needs. Hiring

We give you a reason to...

a qualified workforce, with a strong work ethic, for jobs requiring technical or certificated skills, is a challenge for many local employers. R and M Steel, Rule Steel, West Valley Medical Center, Treasure Valley Community College and many other community partners have made significant financial and in kind contributions to see this Academy come to fruition. You can visit their website at www.elevate2c. org for more information.

Margaret J. Wheatley once said, “There is nopower for change

greater than a community discovering what it cares about.” Recently it was all about the kids at Farmway Village. The Caldwell Housing Authority staff held an impromptu ribbon cutting to celebrate the completion of the new skatepark. A while back, some of the youth had approached director, Mike Dittenber and maintenance staff about the possibilityof building a skatepark. After months of planning, two weeks of building and pouring concrete the dream became a reality.

New Restaurant–Amano Joins Downtown Caldwell

Rebecca Alamilla is moliendo or grinding the corn with a metate, an ancient technique used to grind dried corn kernels.

Salvador Alamilla using an iron tortilla press to make blue corn tlayuda over a wood fire. At Amano, they use the same organic blue corn.

Rebecca and Salvador exploring the Tlacolula ruins, where they gained inspiration for the mural in their restaurant, Amano.

A new Mexican restaurant has opened in downtown Caldwell in the building that formerly housed the Bird Stop coffee shop. The birth of a dream of owners Salvador and Rebecca Alamilla, the traditional foods of Mexico and Southern California have come together with an emphasis on Michoacan and Oaxacan styles with a SoCal influence. Salvador was born in Mexico but his family moved to Santa Ana, California when he

was five. He spent the majority of his adolescence there and became captivated by his mothers ability to take the food produced in his fathers garden to make the tortillas and salsas that he enjoyed everyday. The family moved to Homedale and his culinary curiosity was born at his mothers side, but it took years of study and travel to become the menu at Amano. Salvador met his Idaho woman, Rebecca when he was an Architecture student

and she was managing apartments in Boise, they married in 2013 and brought two children into the world – 2 year old Maya and 6 year old Luka. The dream of owning a restaurant was nurtured along with the children. The day after the decision to eventually open an eatery was made, Salvador took a job as a dishwasher and worked his way up through the kitchen positions before becoming executive chef at Whole Foods in

Boise. Rebecca attended the College of Idaho and had an appreciation for Caldwell and the rebirth of the downtown which led to jumping at the opportunity to open in the unique setting near the plaza. The food is hand crafted with an emphasis on traditional ingredients including heirloom Olotillo corn grown in the coastal region of Oaxaco, Mexico and hand ground before being shaped into the

tortillas that will grace the tables and enhance the family style hospitality and culture. There are 24 beers and ciders on tap and a full bar to provide just the right beverage to enhance your dinner. Make the short trip downtown and enjoy the many amenities offered by Salvador and Rebecca, you will reluctantly wrap up your evening believing them when they say “mi casa es su casa.”

Let’s Welcome Idaho Soap Company

Laneil Jorgeson started Idaho Soap Company after learning the craft of natural soap making at the Nova Studio in San Francisco – she just didn’t know at the time that her company would be so named! The name arrived as many do after a conversation with some teen age girls at a crafts fair. It was after they suggested adding Idaho to her name that she discovered the Idaho Soap Company had actually been registered in 1906, but the name was later abandoned. So, with 10 years of soap making under her belt and a 100+ year old name, the new Idaho Soap Company was born. She ended up in downtown Caldwell as a fitting part of the rebirth of the downtown area. She is from wine country originally and loves that aspect of Caldwell along with the architecture prevalent in the community. Her goals are to grow her company into a retail destination representing local
