Camas Volleyball With a 10-1 record, the Camas Musher’s Volleyball team is the team to beat in the 1A-D2 division. This past week, however, they face one of their biggest challenges - injuries. Volleyball is hard on the body, particulaly the knees, and on Monday of this week, the Musher girls went up against Carey without three of their players, including their best setter Larissa Stewart. Coach Shelli Schroeder said Larissa is a big loss, not because other players can’t fill her position, but because Larissa is great leader. “She is extraordinary setter who knows where, and to whom, to put the ball,” said coach Schroeder. “Fortunantly, her leadership qualities extend beyond the court.” At the game right after her injury, continued on page 7.....

MVS Rookie of the Year At the age of 15, Jay McDonald just completed his second year of driving at Magic Valley Speedway in Twin Falls. Yet, even without a driver’s licence, he was awarded “Rookie of the Year” for 2012 in the Street Stockcar Division, putting him well on his way to becoming a great racecar driver. Young Mr. McDonald, a student at North Valley Academy in Gooding and Senior Patrol leader for Boy Scout Troop 33, has been watching Nascar racing on television from about the time he started walking. While his family had no prior connection to racing, it inspired and excited him. No surprise then that his ultimate dream is to win the Datona 500. Last year, his family helped him get started on his dream by providing his first opportunity to be on the race track. The Junior Stingers Division at MVS is open

to young drivers ages 10 to 14. He ended the 2011 season 5th in his division and 12th in overall point standings. This year he moved up to the Street Stockcar Division and ended the year 6th in the point standings, just one position behind another Gooding Racer, Dale Miles. Jay may be the one behind the wheel of Car #33 at MVS, but he wouldn’t be there without help. He wants everyone to know that his sponsors are an important part of his success. Sponsors include Commercial Tire, Nordlings Parts, T&L Power Equipment, United Metals, Cook’s Food Town, Dale Miles Construction (all of Gooding), and the McDonald family. You’ll have to wait until next year to see him in action, but if you have the chance, roll on down to the Magic Valley Speedway around the middle of April. You might just see a rising star!

Fairfield Water Warning Rescinded Larissa Stewart and her dad watching the Mushers beat the Carey Panthers.

Last week, the City of Fairfield post a warning regarding a positive test for coliform bacteria. This was not an emergency, but the warning posting is required by law. Also, the positive test came from a limited area of the city and did not involve any of the city’s wells. Earlier this week, two subsequent test came back negative, and the warning notice was rescinded. While it is not definitively known, the positive test may have been related to the construction of the new water lines, or it may have been due to how the sample was collected.

Musher 1st & 2nd Grade Soccer Team Wins 2-1

Call in your Order s

In a nail biter and “the most exciting under 7 soccer game ever”, the Musher First and Second grade team defeated the Yellow Scorpions in the Blaine County Recreation District Under 7 league play on September 29th. Team Blue dominated the play early but could not find the back of the net until Emmett Palan tallied a break away goal late in the first half. The Scorpions found their stride in the second half and tied the game early in the third quarter. What followed was high drama as several near misses on both sides occurred. The balls bouncing off posts, and “coulda woulda shoulda” missed opportunities kept the folks on the sidelines guessing as to the eventual outcome. Then, midway through the final quarter, Trever Tews ran “the Play”, finding Troy Smith on a throw in. The Blond Blazer streaked the ball past two defenders and notched the game winner. The Scorpions did not give up easily, but Tristan Smith dominated the backfield with a stalwart defensive performance in closing out the victory.

It is natural to stumble through life while experiencing many different emotions: profound sadness, numbness, depression,anger, guilt, denial, resentment, etc. It is natural to stumble through life with anger, resentment, profound sadness, numbness, etc. after the loss of a loved one. How we make sense of such losses and go on with our own lives is always a challenge. How can we meet our own needs and the needs of surviving members of our family while still mourning, hurting inside?

State Weed Officals Call For Help Idaho’s main hunting seasons are set to open shortly and this means thousands of people will be traversing Idaho’s back country, something that has state noxious weed officials warning could unknowingly lead to the spread of noxious weeds and weed seeds from infested areas to weed free areas. Right now, most noxious weeds are in their seed-stage. So that means it’s crucial that people in Idaho outdoor regions be extremely careful not to pick up and spread noxious weeds and weed seeds from one area to another,” said Roger Batt, Statewide Coordinator for the Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign. Noxious weeds can often unknowingly become lodged in ATVs, off –road vehicles, pack animals and hunting gear, and then carried from one area to another. Even a few seeds can start a new noxious weed outbreak. Noxious weed prevention experts say hunters and outdoor recreationalists should drive, pickups, ATVs and off-road vehicles only on designated roads and trails away from weed infested areas. They should also carefully clean ATVs, vehicles, trailers, pack animals and hunting and camping gear before moving them to a new area. Part of the precautions should also include using only feed that is certified as noxious weed free for horses and pack animals. Hunting dogs and pack animals can also get noxious weed seeds lodged in their coats which can then spread the weeds for miles into new acres. A list of outlets selling certified weed free hay and forage is available on the Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign’s website at www.idahoweedawareness.com. Batt also recommends that hunters and outdoor recreationalists headed for Idaho’s back country first get a free copy of Idaho’s Noxious Weed Book to help pinpoint and identify the different noxious weeds in their favorite hunting or recreating areas. The book has color photos of noxious weeds, plus detailed information about how to identify the different species of noxious weeds. The book is available via the Idaho Weed Awareness Campaign’s website and weed infestations can be mapped with a GPS unit and reported to local County Weed authorities. “As a fellow hunter and recreationalist, I know these are some pretty simple ways in which Idaho hunters and outdoor enthusiasts can help stop the spread of unwanted invasive noxious weeds,” Batt said. Officials have identified 64 different kinds of noxious weeds in Idaho, including infestations in wilderness and backcountry areas. These weeds choke out native vegetation which deprives deer, elk, big horn sheep, and other wildlife of their natural food sources resulting in starvation or migration to other areas. “Noxious weeds are a very serious matter. It is going to take a combined effort from all of us to help protect game habitat and populations by stopping the spread of harmful noxious and invasive plants. Hunters, recreationalists and sportsmen care about Idaho’s wildlife and big game populations and that means they also need to be concerned about the threat noxious and invasive weeds pose to our state’s wildlife populations,” Batt added.

The internationally-acclaimed Harlem Ambassadors will be visiting Gooding for a game at the Gooding High School on November 15 at 7:00 pm. The Harlem Ambassadors offer a unique brand of Harlemstyle basketball, featuring high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ballhandling tricks and hilarious comedy routines. The Ambassadors feature non-stop laughs and deliver a positive message for kids wherever the Ambassadors play. “At our shows, we want the kids to know that they’re part of our team too,” Coach Ladè Majic said. “We invite as many kids as we can to come sit on the bench, have a front row seat during the show, and get involved in all of the fun stuff we do.” The Ambassadors set themselves apart from other “Harlemstyle” basketball teams by working with local not-for-profit and service organizations and holding Harlem Ambassadors shows as community fundraising events. For Gooding’s event the Ambassadors have partnered with the Gooding Chamber of Commerce and Valley Country Stores to help raise funds for Scholarships & Community Projects. The Ambassadors have worked extensively with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers Big Sisters and American Red Cross as well as Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs in communities throughout the U.S., and perform more than 200 shows a year. Those shows have helped raise millions of dollars – an accomplishment of which Ambassadors President Dale Moss is very proud. “It feels good to be able to provide quality entertainment and create memories that the fans will take with them,” Moss explained. “We’re able to give even more when we can help provide funding for a Habitat for Humanity house or new computers for the school library, and that feels great.”

...Camas Volleyball continued Larissa wrote out the introductions for all of the other players. Describing her teammates with words like, “animal-like reflexes,” “the Silent Killer,” “hot as her socks,” “hawk eyes,” “smooth as a penguin,” “angel hands,” Larissa encouraged her teammates on to victory. While not one of their better games, the Mushers still put down the Panthers in three sets (25-16, 25-15 & 25-22). On Tuesday night they beat Castleford in three sets as well. Getting Larissa back on the court for her Senior year will not be easy. The damage to her knee requires surgery and nine months of recovery. The hard part is that the surgery is a financial hardship for her family and she will need help. A special account has been set up at U.S. Bank to help with medical expenses, and a fundraising event is being planned for the October 19th football game (3:30 p.m.) between Camas and Clark County. It’s alway a good thing to support your local sports team. Here is a opportunity to support a specific athlete who needs your help to be the best she can be.

Letter to the Editor Dear Neighbors, I would like to ask that who ever has been helping themselves to harvesting the fruit at my house up Soldier Creek... PLEASE STOP. It has happened before but most recently I was watching more than a hundred precious pears ripening in the autumn sun and then there were none! My trees are all in deer proof cages so I am sure you will understand that, in the future I want my family to be able to savor the fruits of all that labor. Thank you for respecting my request, Karen Sherrerd -------------------------------------To Whom it May Concern: I am a 21-year-old college student who would like to acknowledge my support for John “Rem” Remington for State Representative in our district. As a former teacher of mine, I spent two years learning from his engaging classes, thoughtfulness, and creativity. He will use these valuable skills in the State House if elected. Rem has worked closely with public officials when he was the Athletic Director for the Community School in Sun Valley, and has demonstrated his ability to reach across the aisle to accomplish what is best for our students and our state. Particularly compelling to me is his ability to connect with young voters and his dedication to making sure that girls are able to participate in sports. Rem will develop good consensus public policy initiatives that will be helpful to our district. He will stimulate job growth, increase funding for higher education, and work to improve our environment. Rem will respect our teachers and enhance the role of community colleges and vocational training in Idaho. Rem is the best man for the job and I am proud to support him on Election Day, November 6th. Bronwen Raff Hailey, Idaho ----------------------------------Dear friends in my legislative district: I am writing to confirm that as of November 30, 2012 I will no longer be your Idaho State Representative. I have appreciated getting to know you and working for you these many years, but now it is time for someone else to be elected to my position. I think that John Remington of Ketchum will represent District 26 in the way that you have enjoyed with our current legislative delegation which consists of Donna Pence, Michelle Stennett and me. We have always looked at our challenges like a team and tried to find the best solutions for our constituents. John Remington will continue this model of representation. John has been following Michelle, Donna and me throughout the legislative district since last October. He has met so many of you, listened to your concerns and will hit the ground running as a result. John has taught history for over 30 years. John was the Athletic Director of the Community School and in this capacity he met so many of you and provided leadership and >>>>>>>

Camas Quips

G athered by TTee ee Hurd The father was reading the school report which had just been handed to him by his hopeful son. His brow was watchful as he read: English poor, French weak, mathematics fair, and he gave a gave a glance of disgust at the quaking lad. “Well, dad,” said the son, “It is not as good as it might be, but have you seen that?” and he pointed to the next line, which read, “Health, excellent.” ------------------------------------Pretty Caller - “Do you think the manager will see me now?” Clerk - “Certainly, madam. The manager always has time to see pretty gals.” Pretty Caller - “Well, tell him that his wife is here.” ------------------------------------“It is very strange that no one has ever been able to find Captain Kidd’s treasure.” “Oh, well, Captain Kidd isn’t the only man who has put his money into real estate and couldn’t get it out.”

camaraderie to the people in the ten districts that his school competed against. John was awarded the Athletic Director of the Year in District IV, 1A which includes our legislative district of Camas, Blaine, Lincoln and Gooding counties. John and his wife Rita, who is at educator at Hemingway Elementary in Ketchum, have two sons and have lived here for 27 years. John is loved by his students who affectionately refer to him as “Rem”. John will continue our tradition of listening, looking for consensus and compromise. He will not be bound by ideology. I know our state thrives with minority voices in the legislature. It’s when problems get solved, not shoved aside. As Governor Batt said in a couple of guest opinion columns, Idaho needs political balance. Our state is at a crossroads with regard to education. A strong, educated voice and advocate for education will be beneficial to the school districts in our legislative district. I urge you give John your vote on November 6. Warmest regards, Wendy Jaquet, Ketchum, 726-3100
