Vol 43 Num 49

The SNOW season officially started this last week with multiple storm moving through our area. Highway travelers are encouraged to remember how to behave when snow removal trucks are out making sure you get where you want to be.


Slow down as soon as you see the plow and stay five car lengths back. Staying back will give you more time react if the plow needs to stop quickly.


Snow plows are sometimes spreading de-icing materials from the back of the truck. Salt or sand could damage your vehicle.


The driver’s field of vision is restricted. They may not always see you. Be patient, they are working to help you. If you’re not in a hurry don’t pass and enjoy the safer road behind them. Pay close attention to areas like hills, curves, ramps, bridges and interchanges.


Don’t drive too close. The front plow may cross the road’s centerline and shoulders. Snow plows can also create clouds of snow that can reduce or eliminate your visibility.

Time to Shop for 2020 Hunting & Fishing License Deals by Emily Palmer, Marketing Analyst

You can save a few bucks on licenses, and they make good gifts

With Black Friday, Cyber Monday and holiday shopping deals going on, here are some Idaho Fish and Game “hacks” you may not be aware of that can save you money and increase your opportunities. Hack #1: Purchase a 3-year youth license for your 17-year-old. If a youth purchases a, 3-year youth license while they are 17, they can continue to purchase junior priced tags through the valid dates of the license. Age restrictions still apply for youth-only hunts. Hack #2: Save $89 on license and tags by buying a Sportsman Package. Have you ever been in the field and wished you had another tag or permit in your pocket? Sportsman Package provides a resident combo license, 6 big game tags, and 4 permits -a savings of $89.15 off the a la carte pricing. For the avid hunter/angler, this will either save you money or provide more opportunities at a marginal increase in cost. Hack #3: Enter Idaho’s Super Hunt: the little known “ultimate controlled hunt”. Sure you know about Idaho’s controlled hunts, but did you know that there’s another drawing called Idaho’s Super Hunt which allows you to hunt any open unit (even controlled hunts) anywhere in the state? Each year 34 winners are drawn for elk, deer, moose, pronghorn, or the ultimate super hunt- a combo of all 4 species! You do not need to purchase a license to enter. There are two drawings you can enter, and the second drawing often has fewer entries. Entries are $6 for individual species, or $20 for combo entries. More F&G Hacks on Page 4.....

Cup of Tee

© Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Mine was good. I was a guest with friends. The food and company was great. To some, the road conditions were a little on the snowy side for travel. My travel was pretty good. I put a lot of miles on and the roads were clear for me... for the most part. Friday after Thanksgiving found me with a little less than desired roads. The weather had set in again and added some more snow to the already present snow. I ended up on one of the roads not plowed. Someone had been down the road in a 4x4. I figured I could go down the existing tracks with my little Ford Ranger pickup. We (the truck and I) were doing fine until it could no longer push snow with the bumper (12 inches). Oops! I was stuck in the snow. I placed my handy-man jack under the pickup bumper and the jack would not work. I had to do a lot of beating to the jack to get it to operate. I then proceeded to put on some cable type chains. For the time I spent putting on the chains, I could have completely chain up a logging truck. These cable chains were my first experience using them. In my honest opinion, I was not impressed. To me, it is a good way to cut your fingers if you don’t have gloves. I guess they are designed to be light weight so anyone could put them on. After the chains were on, I was able to drive easily. So... are you ready for Winter driving? If you are not from around here, or ARE here, a reminder of some winter preparations:

Serving with all Gentleness & Compassion...

by Tee Hurd

Be sure your battery cables are clean. Perhaps you may need a new battery it is not in good condition. Headlights would be free of holes and in good condition. Same with the taillights. We never seem to check windshield wiper blades until we are using them. Check them before a road trip. Tires should have adequate tread for any road condition. Tire chains are advised. Jacks should be oiled up for proper working order, so they work and no one gets hurt using them. Sitting outside in a pickup, jacks often have rusting of functioning parts. A lug wrench to remove wheels should be in your vehicle. A small tarp helps when working outside. A few tools are never questions, specially jumper cables. Antifreeze should be at the proper level. A few more things to have in you vehicle include: gloves, stocking hat, blanket, towels, WORKING flashlight, bandana, first aid kit, matches, a tablet and a writing instrument, and perhaps some snacks. Lastly, don’t deviate from maintained routes and always leave a plan of direction with someone. This is my “Cup of Tee” with winter wise.

...2020 Hunting & Fishing License Deals continued

Hack #4: Guarantee your ability to hunt big game in Idaho with a lifetime license. Resident lifetime license certificates can save you money over the longterm, but are a “no-brainer” if you think you may move out of the state. Even if you leave Idaho, you will not need to pay for a non-resident license. Most importantly, your tag allocation come out of the resident pool. So even when non-resident tags sell out, you will still have the ability to buy an over-the-counter tag. Give the gift of a lifetime license to your child before they turn two and save nearly 30 percent! Note: 2020 license, tags, and permits go on sale December 1. Purchases can be made at a license vendor, online, a Fish and Game regional office or by phone at 1-800-554-8685.

Meeting Regional Workforce Needs through Higher Education

by Debbie Critchfield, President, Idaho State Board of Education

Pullman, Washington based Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) creates products used to protect power grids throughout the country and the world. Serving customers worldwide can be challenging and skilled employees make it possible. “Employers like SEL are looking for skilled tradespeople and that workforce need is growing,” said Marisa Hemingway, an SEL Human Resources Director. A few miles south at Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC) in Lewiston, a plan is in place to meet the demand for skilled workers at SEL and for other employers throughout the region. “We have placed career technical and academic studies side-by-side, interfacing the curriculum and we believe we are responding to industry in ways that are meaningful,” LCSC President Dr. Cynthia Pemberton said. LCSC’s new president calls it the “knitting together of hard and soft skills” and says it results from input received from technical advisory committees convened by the college specifically to hear what regional employers need. “They are interested in students who have technical skills directly related to jobs they need to have done. They also need individuals with soft-skills who can reason and work as part of a team and have more complex abilities to solve problems,” Pemberton said. In some cases, students earning an associate degree may decide to continue working toward a more advanced degree. “We try to prepare them for the first job and then for what would come next as well,” LCSC Provost Dr. Lori Stinson said. “Take for example our Associate of Science in Engineering. It is specifically designed for two years here at LCSC and we have an agreement in place with the University of Idaho for students to transfer there for any range of engineering degrees.” Faculty are also partnering with industry in and around the Lewiston-Clarkston valley - establishing internships and apprenticeships to, as Dr. Stinson put it “polish-off the student” to gain specific career skills. SEL’s Marisa Hemingway says it is a great way to help LCSC graduates develop a variety of career competencies. “Who better to teach career skills than the companies offering the careers,” she said. “This partnership enables academic institutions to focus on teaching fundamentals – math, physics, etc.” Similar partnerships with industry are occurring at colleges and universities throughout our state and have the full backing of the State Board of Education and Governor Brad Little’s Workforce Development Council. “Connecting education to careers is critical to the economic competitiveness of the state. Employers have to shine a spotlight on the skills that our future workforce needs. If we don’t provide that leadership, we can’t expect education to meet our needs,” Chairman Trent Clark of the Workforce Development Council said. Dr. Pemberton says the recent pledge of cooperation between all eight college and university presidents is strengthening partnerships and filling voids that might otherwise be problematic. “If an individual school doesn’t have all the pieces for a particular program, we find a way to work together to make those pieces come together.” she said. “These are examples of how higher education in Idaho is working together to deliver real, tangible education pathways that blend experience to meet industry needs.”
