the

2012 Election

We are in the home stretch with election day only six days away. While the Presidential race gets most of the press, it is the local races that will affect us the most. In the District 26 Legislative races, we have a long time educator from Blaine County, John Remington (D), running against a farmer from Camas County, Steve Miller (R) who has many years in public service. We also have another farmer from Camas County with political experience, Lee Barron (R) running against the incumbent from Gooding, Donna Pence (D) who has been in the legislature for eight years. At the County Commissioner level, we have two contested races. In Lincoln County, Cresley McConnell is challenging Charles Ritter for the District One County Commissioner seat. In Camas County, Ken Backstrom is being challenged by Leigh Weidman for District Two County Commissioner. A Reminder: County Commissioner races are county wide - everyone in the county votes for the candidate regardless of the district. The district seats (1, 2 or 3) only indicate where the candidate must live in order to run for that particular office. While write-in campaigns are rarely successful, Lincoln County Sheriff Kevin Ellis is facing two write-in candidates: Daniel C Ward of Richfield and Mike Bright of Shoshone. There is still time to talk to all of these candidates to make sure they are the type of individuals you want representing you and your county. The important thing is to get out and vote. It’s a privilege. Use it.

Senator Football Continues Winning Streak Last week, the Gooding football team won a tight game against American Falls (31-24) in first round of the State 3A Tournament. With the home field advantage again this week, the Senators move up to play Teton this Friday at 7 p.m. Also on Friday, the Dietrich Blue Devils host the first round of the 1AD2 football tournament against Castleford at 7 p.m. In the 1AD1 tournament, Hagerman will have to travel to Jerome this Friday to meet Butte County at 6 p.m. In the 1AD2 Volleyball Tournament, the Dietrich girls gave Deary H.S. a run for their money, but lost the 5th set 16 to 14. They were knocked out of the tournament in their second game by this year’s number two team, Mackay (3-1). The Richfield girls also lost there first game to Horseshoe Bend (3-0), but came back to win their second game against Mullan (3-1). Unfortunataly, Tri-Valley would not let them proceed in the tournament and they ended their third game 3 to 0. In the State Cross Country Tournament, the Gooding girls team took 5th in the 3A division, while the Boys Dietrich Team took 14th in the 2A division.

A Power House in a Small Package He’s 6-years-old and full of energy. Even when he is sick or injured, he never complains about what he loves to do - Marshal Arts. His name? Zander Gonzales. On Monday of this week, Bill Hanson at Fusion MMA in Gooding rewarded young Zander’s dedication with a special belt award for “Student of the Gym.” “I hope this inspires him on to bigger and better things,” said Mr. Hanson. Bill added that Zander has been training with Fusion MMA for only 6 months and he already presents himself as a professional. “In all that time, Zander has only missed two days,” he said. “This young man sets the pace for everyone at the gym - including the adults.” Zander recently fought at the Boxing Smoker in Hailey and did very well. All of the members of the MMA Gym are proud of his accomplishments, and look forward to seeing him fight again. Of course, none of this would be possible without committed parents. Mr. Hanson is very appreciative of the support Zander’s parents, Joe and Crystal Gonzales, have given, not only to their son, but to the gym as well. Photo: Zander and his dad.

Georgia Bolton On August 17, 2012, at the age of 96, Georgia Bolton went to be with the Lord. She was born at home in Noxapater, Mississippi, on March 17, 1916. Georgia’s life was spent helping others and enjoying the company of her friends and family. She graduated from Mississippi State College for Women and spent her career working on Indian reservations as a home economics teacher and in the public school systems at Sells and Parker, Arizona, as a second grade teacher. Gardening was Georgia’s passion, and she spent as much time as possible working in her gardens. She was a member of Parker Garden Club and Yuma Garden Club for 50 years. She felt at peace and close to God when gardening. We wish to thank her garden club friends for the joy they brought to her life. Georgia was also an artist and created many paintings of places she visited and wrote gardening articles for the Desert Gardener column in the Yuma Daily Sun for several years. She was preceded in death by her husband, Art Bolton; her parents, George and Mattie Crow; and her brother, Ruben Crow. She leaves behind her daughter, Karen Bowen (Randy) and their two children Gina and Charlie; her daughter, Marty Dauwalder (David) and their two children Courtney and Tyler (Shaina) and great-granddaughter, Romi; her son, George Bolton (Carolyn) and their four children Tommy, Steven, Christy, and Danny. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Georgia’s memory to Hospice of Yuma (1824 South 8th Avenue, Yuma, AZ 85364), or the Yuma Garden Club (12655 East 36th Street, Yuma, AZ 85367). She will be missed by her family and friends, but we know she is happy and at peace in Heaven. She will remain in our hearts until we meet again. Services were held on Saturday, October 27, 2012, at the Demaray Funeral Chapel in Gooding, Idaho. Burial followed at the Elmwood Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.demarayfuneralservice.com.

Letters to the Editor This is a message to the Fairfield community, especially to the folks who might be on the fence about which way they want to vote for a county commissioner. My family and I have lived here for well over 40 years now and although we are still considered newcomers by some folks, I have had time to learn how things have and do happen here, especially when it comes to politics. I have always said that if you are running a business in Fairfield, you had better not voice your political or personal opinions about how the leaders of the community are doing their job or your business will definitely suffer as a result. I would still advise other folks that same way but as for myself, I really don't care anymore about that. If you folks want to see the county keep going in the direction it has been headed in for the last several years just go along with what has been happening and see where it leads us to next. The fact that we get to see the minutes of the county commissioners meetings of April 2012 in the local newspaper in September 2012 simply amazes me. How is the public supposed to keep up with what’s happening? Has anybody checked into our county finances of late. We are in a scary situation financially but we still have a full-time, highly paid P&Z Administrator that even had to have a secretary to help with his work load. I think the secretary position has since ceased but was in place for quite some time while there were very few building permits issued and only one subdivision issue going on. When the late Earl Wilson was P&Z Administrator, the commissioners only allowed him to have 30 hours a week and expected him to keep up with several subdivision applications and many building permits and inspections. And the pay was an insult compared to what the present is. On a different note, I would like for everyone to be aware that the county road and bridge crew helped the Soldier Mountain Search & Rescue Unit get a building completed (funded by a grant from Parks and Recreation) and with a little more help from members of the sheriff’s department, the organization’s members, along with some help from a few of their friends and relatives, finished the 1800 square foot building in the time frame we were allowed. We did not receive any help from the county commissioners except for the verbal things that they had to do to implement the grant and tell the R&B crew that they could help with some earthwork. It is built on county property, but it belongs to all of us, not the commissioners, so nothing special about their performance there. It is a lot easier to run ones mouth than to run a shovel or other hand tools required to build a structure. I’m simply amazed at how so many folks understand so much about how good of a job a candidate is doing without ever going to any commissioner meetings or P&Z meetings. How can you really have any idea if you don't witness first hand what is going on. The county may have won the battle but they sure as heck lost the war with Mr. Martin. They mess up a building continued on page 8.....

Thanks for the privilege!

M

ore than 12 years ago, I was first asked to serve as County Commissioner in Camas County. Since then, as your Commissioner, I’ve tried to approach each decision with objectivity, balancing the needs of the individual people of our county while protecting the beauty and productivity of our environment. Representing all of you is an honor.

The residents of our community are independent people who think for themselves. They’re used to taking responsibility for what needs to be done and getting it done. County Commissioners establish rules that affect our lives. It’s very important that the people who serve as County Commissioners can see the big picture and remember that responsible people need a lot of freedom – not a lot of regulation. Serving you for the past 12 years has been a deeply rewarding experience. If you choose me for another term, I will continue to welcome your honest comments, questions, and disagreements. I will continue to oppose attempts to unfairly give an advantage to one individual or group at the expense of everyone else. Let us never take for granted what an amazing system we have, in which we can freely choose who represents us. Especially at the local level, your vote counts! We still have a few days until the election. As hard as I've tried, I haven’t managed to visit with each one of you. So if you have concerns you would like to discuss – now or after the election – please feel free to give me a call at 764-2613 or539-2613.

...but never Compromising the Truth.

from the Editor Turning our Children into Robots One of the great failures of our public school system has been in teaching our children to “love” reading, though to be honest, it’s not all their fault. They have had a lot of help from technology - TV to be specific - and parents who abdicate certain responsabilities. So, what are we doing? Bringing more technology into the school with the “laptops for kids” program. The proponents of Proposition 3 are concerned that kids will not take care of these computers (there should be a mechanism to charge parents for any and all damage repairs). There are also concerns that this will end up being an unfunded mandate and that teachers might loose their jobs, but there is a bigger issue to be concerned about. While the integration of technology into our school system is an absolute must, there is a risk that we will turn a useful tool into a crutch. Already, some of our college entrance exams are allowing students to use calculators. With the right software, a student may never need to learn grammar or spelling - just push a button and it’s done. The problem is that too many people, including educators, believe that technology is a panacea for our educational challenges. What’s lost in all of this is what kids need most - they need to love reading. If computers can help with that process... great. But, here’s a question, “What is the first step in learning to read?” While it is possible that a computer could do this, it would not be the same as the traditional method. Over the last few years, there has been a concerted effort to improve reading skills and many Idaho schools are doing better, at least on the test scores. Yet, for all appearances, we are still missing that all important first step. Teaching a child basic reading skills is not the same thing as teaching a child to love reading. Being able to make it through a reading test is not the same thing as being able to critically analyze a piece of writing. In order for a child to learn those things, they must be read to... by a parent. The problem with TV and computers is that they reinforce everything with visuals and the child never learns to use their imagination. If you have read all of these articles regarding Propositions 1, 2 & 3, it is obvious that I have some problems with the laws that were passed last year. I am not, however, encouraging you to vote “No” or “Yes” on any of these referendums. The underlying motive behind these propositions is one of “sour grapes.” A certain political group lost a political battle and they are unwilling to accept that defeat. If the primary opposition to S1108, S1110 and S1184 was from residents of Idaho, it would be something to consider. Unfortunately, over 80% of the monetary support to overturn these laws comes from outside our state - the National Education Association. I admire those who fight for what they believe in, but not when it means they get to tell me what I have to believe. None of this is about education. It is a political battle over the control of how and what your children are taught.

Letters continued... permit big-time and to remedy the situation they change the ordinance to fit the new situation. Isn't that like shutting the barn door after the critters got out when they weren’t supposed to be out? These are just part of the reasons that all of the eligible voters in my family will be voting for Leigh Weidman for county commissioner. If you are interested in having honesty, common sense, fairness, and great work ethics return to our commission, then you might consider doing the same. She has the time to spend to be a very efficient board member. She has great qualifications in managing business money and people. To me, that is a real head start. If I’ve offended anyone and you would like to share your opinion with me, come on down and we will talk about it. I would be happy to take the time to visit and listen to your opinions. Sincerely, Fred Marolf ------------------------------------A Vote for Donna Pence is a vote for Local Interests: I am writing this letter to urge voters in District 25 to once again support Donna Pence on November 6th. Donna has worked tirelessly for our district supporting what is important to our livelihood in this area: agriculture, wildlife, and preservation of our Idaho way of life. When bills are introduced, Donna takes the time to research how it will affect our area, and votes for what she feels her constituents value the most. Her background as an educator, tree farmer, outdoorsman, and experienced Legislator make her the best qualified candidate to represent what our District is all about. She does not vote based strictly on party line expectations, but on how the bill that is introduced will impact our area economically, environmentally, and each person individually. This is the type of person that should be representing the constituents who elect them. So I urge you to support Donna Pence for District 25 Representative on November 6th. A vote for Donna is a vote for you and your community. Peter M. Orth, Gooding, Idaho ------------------------------------Letter of Support: During the past several weeks, this paper has published several letters in support of Representative Donna Pence. These letters list a number of her accomplishments and reasons to vote for her to continue representing District 26. The reasons listed are all good reasons for you to vote for Donna. However, I would like to add another reason for voting for Donna Pence. If you live or work in Lincoln, Gooding, Camas, or Blaine County, your livelihood directly or indirectly depends on our natural resources. Agriculture, tourism, and recreation, in the four county district all rely on the wise use of our water, soil, air, wildlife, plant resources, and natural beauty. Donna Pence is a practicing conservationist. I have known Donna for well over 30 years. Joyce and I have hunted, fished, fenced riparian test areas, and camped with Donna, Lew, and their family. All three of Lew and her three daughters are college graduates in natural resources and currently work in that area. I urge the voters in the four county area to join Joyce and me in marking our ballots for Donna Pence. Thank you, Gale Roberts, Hagerman

Educating the People

208-320-8627

“A well-instructed people alone can be permanently a free people.” James Madison “A primary object... should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing... than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?” George Washington “I know of no safe depositor of the ultimate powers of [a] society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.” Thomas Jefferson “Say... whether peace is best preserved by giving energy to the government, or information to the people. This last is the most certain and the most legitimate engine of government. Educate and inform the whole mass of the people. Enable them to see that it is their interest to preserve peace and order, and they will preserve them. And it requires no very high degree of education to convince them of this.

Here we go again.......Happy Holidays! Growing up in the 1970’s, we never heard the term “fatfree”. That’s because it did not yet exist. Julia Child showed us how to saute everything in butter. Morning shows didn’t have segments on “how to slim down your holiday fare”, and it was ok to have a REAL Sugar Plum Fairy dance in your head! Holiday memories always involved events with family and friends and wonderful times spent together. I remember walking into my Grandma’s house on Thanksgiving, and there would always be a huge box of See’s candy! You know the one with not just one layer of chocolates, but two layers of the most wonderful treats known to man. My cousin and I studied the swirls on top and became experts on identifying each piece of candy. I can’t remember where I left my keys in the last hour, but I can still identify most of those chocolates by swirl to this day. Parties were usually at the same place each holiday, and the same recipes were made every year. My aunt made these fabulous baked cheese olives. She took a styrofoam cone, tooth-picked lettuce leaves on it with her “olive balls”. They made lovely olive Christmas trees on her table, and we would pick the “ornaments” off and eat them. Grannie Dorothy made her famous Wassail drink at the annual Christmas day open house, a delicious hot spiced cider. Cookies were everywhere you went as far as the eye could see, and you knew which ones were made by Margaret, or Aunt Opal, and so on. Maybe it is true now, and we are a much fatter society than we were back then. I can’t help but think the “fat free” years were a part of that evolution. Why have one real cookie when you can have four fat-free cookies? My hope is that we are coming full circle and really appreciating real food again. Not in huge amounts, but in tradition, gratitude, and artistry. One of my friends has started to make homemade marshmallows. They are heavenly, and I don’t even like marshmallows all that much. Now I will look forward every year to Stacie’s marshmallows! So everyone get out your grandma’s recipes, use real butter and cream, and have another serving of Auntie Bertha’s bite-size fruit cakes. (She would stay up all night and make 2,000 of them. I’m not kidding!) Enjoy the holidays to their fullest potential. We’ll talk low-fat lingo again in January, I promise.

Here’s the recipe for Aunt Carol Ann’s Olive Balls:

"Shall Section 5, Article X, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho be amended to provide that the state board of correction shall have the control, direction and management of adult felony probation and parole?"

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL’S STATEMENT OF MEANING, PURPOSE AND RESULT TO BE ACCOMPLISHED Currently, Section 5, Article X, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho provides that the Board of Correction shall have the control, direction and management of adult probation and parole. The proposed amendment would insert the word "felony" before the word "probation" and would clarify that the Board of Correction's authority is limited to the supervision and management of felony offenders. Consequently, if the proposed constitutional amendment is adopted, the Board of Correction would not have the authority to supervise or manage misdemeanor probationers. Misdemeanor probationers would continue to be supervised by Idaho counties, as is permitted by law.
