Come See Idaho’s First Passive House Open for Technical Viewing January 12-14

Back in the Stands School is back in session this week, and high school winter sports are back as well. To add to the excitement, many schools have a pep band to encourage the home team, and sometimes, to intimidate the visiting team. Having a pep band is not always as easy as it should be. Some instruments, like drums, need more space than an average bleacher can provide. Many of our school gyms have a stage at one end of the basketball court, but that is not always a good location for the band because of stray basketballs. In Camas County, there has not been a good place for the pep band at basketball games for many years. But, in 2010, a self-proclaimed “band geek” started think about building a small stage in the bleacher for the pep band to use during home games. continued on page 3.....

Fairfield, Idaho - Victor Weber of the ZEPHER Group announced today the dates of January 12-14 for a technical open house of the Passive House retrofit project located in the old township of Soldier, ID. The open house will demonstrate the properties of the 1910 farmhouse, which permit it to use 90% less heating energy and up to 70% less total energy. The guts of its super-insulated, airtight shell will be exposed, allowing attendees to see the framing, insulation and air sealing techniques employed. The home’s mechanical systems will be operational, including its triple pane Krypton filled windows, a 93% efficient heat recovery ventilation system, and its solar thermal heat storage system designed to provide the majority of the heat the structure does not generate on its own. Viewers will experience the superior indoor air quality wrought by the ventilation system’s constant stream

of fresh air, and will notice the even thermal comfort throughout the structure from the moment they enter. This open house will benefit architects, builders, designers and the general public desiring to learn more about the future of building science-the Passive House Standard, the most rigorous building energy standard in the world. The open house will run each day from 10 am to 5 pm. Find details at www.zeph-er.com or call 208 764-2820. The ZEPHER Group pleased to offer scheduled field trips for school groups. Interested parties should call to arrange a date and time.

Choosing A President Yesterday, the first caucus for the 2012 Presidential election was held in Iowa. While the results are an important boost to the campaign of the candidate who won, they are not a reliable indication of how other states will vote. The Republicans in Idaho have always used the primary election process to choose a presidential candidate for their party. This year, however, they will follow in the footsteps of the Idaho Demo-

cratic party by changing to a caucus process. The differences between a caucus and a primary are significant. First, a primary election is run by the state, while a caucus is run by the party involved. Secondly, instead of going into a voting booth sometime between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on the day of the election, the caucus participants will all gather together at a specontinued on page 9.....

Upland Game/Furbearer Hill City Store & Saloon Season Proposals ~ NOW OPEN ~ JEROME – The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is seeking public input on proposals for 2012-13 and 2013-14 upland game and furbearer seasons. Proposals include 1) increasing the possession limit for upland birds from two times the daily bag limit to three times the daily bag limit, 2) reverting to a daily bag of eight birds for chukar and gray partridge, 3) opening all upland bird seasons on the third Saturday in September, and 4) opening additional drainages in Camas and Gooding counties to beaver trapping. Anyone interested in providing input on these seasons is invited to attend an open house at the Fish and Game office on Friday, Jan. 6, 2012 from 4 pm to 6 pm. The office is located at 324 S. 417 E., Jerome, on Hwy. 93 about one mile north of Interstate 84. The public may also review the proposals and provide comments any time on the Fish and Game website http:// fishandgame.idaho.gov/ or at the Fish and Game office in Jerome. The Fish and Game Commission will take action on final season proposals at their meeting in Boise on Jan. 25-27, 2012. ---------------------------------------

Sportsmen’s Chili Cook-Off JEROME – The Idaho Department of Fish and Game will host the 4th Annual Sportsmen’s Chili Cook-Off at the Jerome Regional Office, 324 South 417 East, Highway 93 Business Park, on Thursday January 12th, from 6:30 – 9 p.m. Participants are invited to bring their favorite chili or just come and sample the different flavors and talk with Fish and Game staff about current issues. “It is a great event,” said Jerome Hansen, Fish and Game Regional Supervisor. “Last year we had over 20 chili entries and more that 60 sportsmen attended. Ever year it just continues to get bigger and better.” After the feed, Fish and Game Department staff will provide updates on the Blair Fire and the Idaho Wildlife Summit. For more information on the Sportsmen’s Chili Cook-Off, call the Magic Valley Regional Office at 324-4359.

...Pep Bandstand continued After talking to teachers and other students, Camas County Sophomore, Taylor Gorringe, drew up the plans and enlisted the help of the fourth period shop class to build and install a platform in the southeast corner of the gymnasium. Beside being just the right size for a drum set, it has a rail to keep whoever uses it safe. Miss Gorringe said, “I love music and I love the Camas Mushers. This project was a way of giving back to my school.” As basketball season continues, the Mushers supporters now have an added reason to come out to the games.

Wilber Lee “Sonny” Floyd Wilber Lee “Sonny” Floyd, 79, a resident of Gooding, was born in Garden City Kansas January 23, 1932, and passed away peacefully December 21, 2011 in Twin Falls, Idaho. He was the fourth son and sixth child of Robert Edward and Sylvia Cleo Wallis Floyd. (Sonny was born at home before his Dad returned from town with the doctor. It was the middle of the Great Depression and their farm was in the middle of the Dust Bowl.) Bank failure, three years of no crops due to the drought, and a four year old daughter with dust pneumonia, were strong incentives to seek greener pastures. Sonny was only two years old when the Floyd family left Kansas. They endured many hardships until they arrived in Gooding, Idaho in the spring of 1936. The Floyd family moved to a farm near Bliss in 1942. Sonny graduated Bliss High School in 1950. He married Helen Sue Leach Cox. They had one son, Donald Benjamin born April 4, 1959. They later divorced. Sonny then married Karma Porter Oliverson. Until her death in March 2000, Karma could be found at his side through all of his endeavors including farming and ranching in southern Idaho and drilling deep water wells in Arizona and Nevada. Sonny had a strong work ethic and loved horses, horseback riding and the ranching “cowboy” life-style. Sonny was preceded in death by his wife Karma; his parents; brothers, Chet Floyd, Ben Floyd, Willard Floyd, and Bobby Floyd; sisters, Claris Myers and Olive June “Ollie” Craven; and nephews Michael Alan Floyd, Ray Floyd, and Richard “Dick” Floyd. Sonny is survived by his only child, Dr. Donald B. Floyd, of Everett, Washington; grandchildren, Scott Floyd and Kendall Floyd; special friend and companion Yvonne Szajgecki, of Jerome; younger sister Claudia Michalke, of Colville, Washington; and numerous nieces and nephews. Visitation for family and friends will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Thursday, January 5, 2012 at Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel. A funeral service will be held at 12 p.m. on Friday, January 6, 2012 at Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel. Burial will follow at Elmwood Cemetery in Gooding. Arrangements are under the direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the obituary link at www.demarayfuneralservice.com.

...but never Compromising the Truth.

Lost, Found & Pound Dogs Have a Web Page by Nan Reedy Gooding Dog Groups has launched their new webpage designed to offer a 24/7 free bulletin board for lost, found and especially dogs at the pound. The webpage is accessible from anywhere there is internet service. Look for it at www.goodingdogs.com. When people discover a strange dog at their place and take them in out of kindness, the dog is as good as hidden. With this webpage people who have found animals can email photos and descriptions and they will be posted online, and those who have lost them can also do the same thing. The webpage is linked to the Gooding city/county pound and will be working in conjunction with that facility to reunite pets with their owners as well as save abandoned but worthy dogs from euthanasia simply because they have no place to go. Signs advertising the webpage are currently being posted at community bulletin boards in Gooding, Wendell and Bliss. The GDG has only been in existence for two weeks now, and already they have reunited two dogs with their people and saved an abandoned dog from euthanasia. This group was briefly associated with Anything’s Pawsable in Jerome, but when that organization wanted to focus solely on getting a facility built in Wendell, the group decided to go it alone. “It’s not that we don’t support Wendell’s push for a holding facility, said Debbie McClain of GDG, “because we do. But we wanted to help the situation in Gooding right away, and not wait for other towns to get organized. By forming our own group, we can do both.” Nan Reedy, GDG member, said that once a tagless dog wandered into her yard and she put up posters advertising but no one called. She and her family moved to another town, taking the dog, now called Christine, with them. Three years went by and one day there was a knock at the door and when she opened it, a woman looked through the open door to the couch and said, “MUFFY!!!” and Christine leaped off the couch and into her arms. GDG hopes to improve the time between lost and found. As soon as the public becomes familiar with www.goodingdogs.com it will be the first place to look for a lost pet or to see if the pound has a dog that is looking for a forever home. Remember that pound dogs only have a short 3-5 day window of opportunity to be claimed.

The program is titled “Faith, Hope, and Love. Angie Schneider of Twin Falls will share her ministry with Haitian children. She and her husband., Paul, have adopted nine children over the past few years. Angie is the daughter of the Demarays of Gooding. There will also be a special musical presentation. Please make reservations for lunch by calling Carolyn Herzinger at 934-5700 on or before January 15th. Cost of the lunch is $8.50. The program, which begins at noon, is free to the public.

...Choosing continued cific time and location. The voting is different as well. Instead of using one ballot with a long list of candidates (federal, state, and local races), the caucus may use several rounds of voting before a final result is determined. This process may also involve open debate between the caucus participants. In Idaho the ballots will be secret (something that is not always true in other caucuses), but in small caucus meetings the way someone votes may be obvious to the other participants. For example: The caucus opens with a first round of voting on a list of five or six candidates. The candidate receiving the fewest votes (or less than 15%) is removed from the ballot. After that, a time of debate takes place to entice the supporters of the loosing candidate to vote for one of the other candidates. Voting then continues to a second round and another candidate is eliminated. This process continues until a single candidate receives at least 60% of the vote, or until a final vote is taken on the final two candidates. Clearly, the winner of a caucus might not be the most popular candidate, but is usually the candidate with the most supporters at the caucus meeting. In this process, a candidate’s organization is far more important than trying advertise a candidate’s views and policies to the general public. Last year, a great deal was made of the decision by the Republican party to close their primary. That decision may have a big impact on local races, but for the presidential race, the decision by the Republican party to move to the caucus system is far more significant.
