“My main goal is to continue the work that Duke Morton started.” Alfred Eichholtz, 56, has lived in Gooding County for over 20 years. This will be his first venture into the world of politics, but believes that main job of an elected official is to listen. “If we [elected officials] work on communication, we can avoid a multitude of problems.” Regarding the upcoming bond election to address Gooding’s Water problems, “I would love to save the old irrigation system, but at this point we re-

Walter Nelson is no stranger to local politics having served on the school board for a number of years. As a life long resident of Gooding, he has a keen desire to serve his community. Earlier this year he was appointed by the City Council to finish out Duke Morton term, and while that has given him a head start in knowing the challenges facing the city, there is much more to learn.

Fish & Game is seeking information on two animals that were shot and left this past week in the Magic Valley. A doe pronghorn antelope was found shot and wasted near Malta in Unit 57, on or around October 12, and a four-by-five bull elk was found in Devils Creek Canyon off the John Boyd Draw Road in Unit 46 on October 10. “We are hoping that someone saw or knows something about the incidents and will come forward with the information,” said Conservation Officer, Steven Ross. People with information, leading to a conviction on these or other crimes are eligible for a reward through Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) and callers can remain anonymous. People can either contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 twenty four hours a day or call the Fish and Game Regional office at 208-324-4359. placent. “Gooding has a lot of problems, but they’re not new problems. They are problems that gone on for years.” He agrees with the other candidates that the flood irrigation system is too expensive to repair, but if the city had planned ahead 30 or 40 years ago to maintain the system, it wouldn’t be the problem it is today. “Too often, we wait until something has to be fixed before we do anything.”

Bertha Vivian Lowry

Bertha Vivian Lowry was born June 10, 1928 in Buhl, Idaho. Bertha, also known as Bert or Bertie by family and friends was the youngest of eight children born to George Lanning and Gertrude Mock Lanning. Bert passed away on October 9, 2013 at her home in Northwest Shoshone after a long and courageous battle with Lymphoma. She was a wonderful wife, mom, grandmother, aunt and friend who will be greatly missed. Bert’s parents moved from Wyoming to Idaho filing homestead land claims in the Sawtooth Valley in 1912. The family lived and worked in the Stanley and Magic Valley areas for many years, finally settling in Shoshone in the early 1930’s. Bert attended Shoshone schools and at eighteen years of age married her great love and life-partner, Oliver ‘Podge’ Lowry. They would have celebrated their 67th anniversary in November. In addition to working with her husband on the family farm for over 66 years, Bert enjoyed a long career providing care and compassion to many while working at the Wood River Convalescent Center. She was a very talented seamstress, designing and sewing more formal dresses, wedding gowns, cheerleading and drill-team outfits and other creations than can be counted. She greatly enjoyed family gatherings, always creating a wonderful feast for all. Bert’s other hobbies and interests included bowling, maintaining a large and beautiful lawn, reading, camping and traveling. She was an avid snowmobiler logging more than 40,000 miles alongside her adventurous husband and their friends while ‘playing in the snow’ throughout Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Utah. Bertha is survived by her husband Oliver Lowry; three children, Cheryl (Larry) Braun of Shoshone, Marlene (Earl Peck) Lowry of Bellevue and Randy (Kathy Davidson) Lowry of Shoshone; two grandchildren, Brandi (T.C.) Sheer of Lumberton, MS and Kurtis Braun (Jessica Burks) of Uniontown, WA; and one brother, Albert Lanning of Glendale, Arizona. She was preceded in death by her parents, six siblings and her grandson, Aaron Lowry. A celebration of her life will be held at a future date. The family would like to extend sincere gratitude to all of the doctors, nurses and caregivers of St. Luke’s Magic Valley Hospital (medical floor) and Hospice Visions for their care and compassion during Mom’s recent hospital stays and final days. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Shoshone Chapel.

Garnet Oneida

Garnet Oneida passed away on October 4, 2013, in Hailey, Idaho. She was 89. Garnet was born January 6, 1924 on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in White River, South Dakota, to homesteader’s Alta and Harry Atwood. She was the second to last child and joined a family of brothers that were all too happy to take their little sister along with them on their “adventures.” The family farmed in South Dakota rising above such adversity as droughts, locust and epic dust storms. In 1937, Alta brought the children to Jerome, Idaho where they began attending school. Many times growing up her brothers and their friends would take a car full of kids to go dancing, so began her love affair of music and dancing. This is where Garnet met her true love Martine Oneida, who lived in Shoshone, Idaho. In August of 1941, Martine asked Garnet to marry him and they were married on November 21, 1941. Shortly after, Martine moved his bride to Seattle, Washington where he was employed at Boeing Aircraft. Garnet and Martine started their family when David was born in 1942. Times were turbulent with the blackouts and the rationing of gas and meat after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. After the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima and the surrender of the Japanese in 1945, the small family moved to Shoshone to stay. Martine began to work with his father and brothers on the sheep ranch, which was one of the largest in Lincoln County at the time. With the arrival of Renee in 1947 and Carmen in 1953, Martine (along with family and friends) built Garnet a house on North Alta Street in Shoshone, where she currently resided. Garnet had married into a large, Basque family that not only owned and ran a sheep ranch but also the Oneida boarding house. Garnet embraced the Basque culture, learning the songs and many of the Basque dances, such as the Jota. She also loved the Basque food and learned to cook for 15 to 25 herders at a time. At the time of her death, attended the Basque dinner in Gooding every month was one of her favorite things to do. Martine would become ill and would pass away in 1966. While Martine was ill, he would always tell sheep herders “you could look all over America and all over Spain and they couldn’t find a better wife than his.” Garnet would never find anyone to match up to Martine and the love they shared. As a young, single mom, Garnet was forced to start another chapter in her life that started with going to Business College in Twin Falls. She would work at Gateway Taggery and Grosse Drug Store before working at the Deaf and Blind School in Gooding. She then moved to Pullman where she became a housemother in the Alpha Chi Omega House with 56 girls. She loved meeting people both young and old! After two years in Pullman, in 1977 she became the dorm mother at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls and became known to everyone as Mrs. O. For years, she worked with

October 16, 2013

kids from all over the world and no doubt touched many of her “CSI kids’” lives. At the time of her death, she was proud to call many of these “kids” her friends. She retired from the college in 1987 and returned to her home in Shoshone. She would stay busy with helping out in the elementary school as a teacher’s aide and in the Sun Valley Lodge Gift Shop, always wanting to meet and interact with others. Garnet had a zest for life that you might find surprising for someone who had overcome so much at such a young age. She loved music and dancing and would have gone dancing on the last day of her life if she could have. If you were ever around her, you knew that there was no one she did not know or did not want to get to know. She adored her friends and her family and will leave an everlasting impression on them. Garnet was the last survivor of her generation in both the Oneida and the Atwood families and was preceded in death by her husband, Martine and quite unbelievably, by her son David, on the very same day. As a family, we find some solace in knowing that David helped her over and that they are together. Garnet is survived by her daughters, Renee Bozzuto (Bill); and Carmen Maestas; her grandchildren, Greg Oneida (Kellie); Krisie Bozzuto; Pat Hughes (Shanda); Rob Bozzuto; Tasha Urrutia (Doug); Nicki Jo Kobev (Lance); Jason Bozzuto (Kelly); and Ramie Dennehy (Brendan); 14 great-grandchildren; and 3 greatgreat-grandchildren. A funeral service was held on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the First Baptist Church in Shoshone, with Deacon John McKinley of St. Peter’s Catholic Church officiating. Burial followed at the Shoshone Cemetery. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service - Shoshone Chapel.

Presents opportunity for both sides to come together to create more sustainable path Washington, D.C. – Idaho Senator Mike Crapo, a member of the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, has been named as one of the twenty-one senators of the U.S. Senate who will serve on a conference committee to reconcile the differences between the Senate and U.S. House of Representatives-passed budgets. This bipartisan group, from both the Senate and House, will work to find compromise between the differing budgets with a deadline to report back to Congress by December 13, 2013. The Senate and House agreed to go to conference on the budgets as part of a larger deal to reopen the government and extend the nation’s borrowing limit. This measure passed both chambers on October 16 and was signed by the president shortly thereafter. “This new conference committee presents an enormous opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to find common ground on a more sustainable budget path for our country,” said Crapo. “For far too long, Washington has come to rely on shortterm spending measures that do not allow for meaningful and significant reform of our spending habits. Further, if Congress continues neglecting to adhere to the budget it adopts, the deficit reduction claimed in the out years will never be achieved. For the first time in over fifty years, the Budget Control Act has helped cut spending for two consecutive years and with a debt approaching $17 trillion dollars, a figure that is unsustainable and hurting economic growth, there is no reason these spending reductions should not remain in place. “While I could not support the budget that was passed by the Senate earlier this year, I believe there are ideas and policies in both versions that we can mutually agree on and start the process of putting us on a sustainable fiscal path. This will not be an easy task with an almost $90 billion dollar difference between the two budgets, but I look forward to working with Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-Washington) and Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) to achieve this goal,” Crapo concluded. The other senators appointed to the conference committee include: Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, Committee Ranking Member Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming), Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Pat Toomey (R-Pennsylvania.), Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), Kelly Ayotte (R-New Hampshire), Roger Wicker (R-Mississippi), Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon), Bill Nelson (D-Florida), Debbie Stabenow (D-Michigan), Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island), Mark Warner (D-Virginia), Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon), Chris Coons (D-Delaware), Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin), Tim Kaine (D-Virginia) and Angus King (I-Maine). Crapo previously served as a member of the President’s Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, helped develop the “Bowles-Simpson” budget blueprint and was a member of the Senate’s bipartisan “Gang of Six” that has held ongoing budget and tax reform meetings.

Oh man Oh man – when I get a good book in my hands I am a happy camper. But when I get a book like “Serena” in my hands, I want to stand on the corner and holler – read this!!!! I’m telling you guys (yes, guys too) to read this book. It’s got everything including the manly arts of gore, death, decapitation, and murder, murder, murder. For the ladies it has tender love, sex that knows just when to “fade to black”, and finally a better late than never justice. The tapestry of the brutal timber industry is woven with an eloquently understated social conscience as it chronicles horribly cruel, rapacious businesses that push for more, more, more at the cost of the earth and every inhabitant on it. These are the very Land Rapers our government regulations were created to stop - only an entire government could even begin to control these people. The writing is so fine that I could see, smell and hear every page. When I closed the cover at the end, I wasn’t sure if I’d read a book, seen a movie, or actually lived it myself.

The Courier News  October 16, 2013 From the Editor As many of you have noticed, this week’s edition of the Courier NEWS has arrived late to your preferred delivery location. Two week’s ago, I ordered ink from a supplier whom I have used for several years. He has been more than reliable and when a container was damaged, he replaced it. When the ink didn’t show up last week, I sent off an e-mail, then just for kicks, I checked his web site... It was gone! I then made a crucial mistake - I waited for an e-mail response thinking that Monday would be soon enough to take care of things. As is often the case, I failed to realize that there was a Monday holiday - Columbus day. This doesn’t affect most businesses, but it did affect a critical supply line - the post office. Sometimes there are moments when you just have to, take deep breath and said, “There’s nothing I can do but wait.” And wait I did. The ink showed up on Friday (from a different supplier) and now this newspaper is in your hands. The old supplier sent me a refund, but I’m still not 100% sure what happened. For certain reasons, I suspect that it had to do with Obamacare. Across America, there are hundreds of small businesses that are struggling with the economic impact of that legislation. They want to do what’s right for their employees, but how can they do that if they go broke paying insurance premiums. Understand, it’s not employees being added to a policy, it’s existing policy rates that have doubled while coverage has been drastically changed to be in compliance with the law. It’s a noble idea to try and make sure everyone has access to healthcare, but sending money to Washington politicians seems like a strange way to do that.

Pick up some Fresh Homemade Bread

Serving with all Gentleness & Compassion...

I have attended many school carnivals or fairs, and have won lots of cakes in those cake walk fund-raisers. At the time I called it luck. To win one of those homemade cakes was a thrill. They were usually better than a store bought cake, but a store bought cake would do if you won it. So, I wonder if it is the thrill of the cake, the thrill of the win, or is it luck? This last weekend the Treasure Valley Antique Power Association (tractor pullers) had our final tractor pull. We had a 2N Ford for raffle at our season’s finale of tractor pulling. For months we sold raffle tickets on this 2N. Several of our members had bought $100 worth of tickets each at one of our meetings. For some reason their tickets were a different color from the rest (maybe we had a shortage of tickets that day). We had a young girl draw the winning ticket over her head from a five gallon bucket. She did not draw one of the member’s off colored tickets. Our members would consider the “luck of the draw” bad luck because there were equally as many colored tickets. The person who won the tractor would call their win lucky. They bought a small amount of tickets for their chance. To me the lucky part was the winner of the tractor is in Ecuador a whole continent away. The winner, while visiting his daughter, bought a few thickets in small hopes that she would win a tractor for her recently acquired small acreage. Now as luck had it, they have a small tractor to accent their place. As I thought about this scenario, I thought that case was real luck. As I sit here writing this week’s letter I asked myself, “what is luck?” Was winning those cakes really lucky? Now as I look back it may have been odds that won me so many cakes. I know I won more often when there were fewer people and I bought more empty slots. Small detail. The dictionary describes as luck as the seemingly chance happening of events which affect one’s fortune, lot, or fate. I would like to think that luck is a perception of things outside your realm of control such as determinate force or fate (cause). Perhaps it could be your perception of the event which is the effect after cause has been identified. In shorter terms I believe luck is the venture of paying attention to detail. It is thinking, believing, and following through. Can you create your own luck? If paying attention to detail is luck, then definitely. One of my friends, Rick, is the luckiest guy I know when it come to the treasure hunt. It is because he pays attention to detail. His luck (detail) is what others don’t see. Is there bad luck? To me bad luck is a mental note in which something did not go right or was out of your planned control. Then there is the attention of detail which reminds you of bad situations stimulating a repeat, coining a bad luck. Too much attention to bad details. I did not win the lottery this week. Lucky me! Who needs the stress. Fortune is paying attention (or not paying attention) to your lot. Oddly luck may be that cake from the cake walk to go Tee Hurd with your “Cup of Tee.”

The time and effort invested in palate training is very rewarding and a whole lot of fun.
