The 2012 Republican Caucus The Camas County Republican Central Committee announced this week that the Republican Party will be holding a Presidential Nominating Caucus on the night of March 6, 2012 at the Legion Hall in Fairfield. In Gooding County, the Republican Caucus will be held at the Gooding County Fairgrounds. In Lincoln County, participants will gather at the Lincoln County Community Center. Most locations will start balloting promptly at 7 p.m. Once the voting starts, you will not be allowed to join the process (some counties will close their doors at 7 p.m - other counties may be less formal). Be sure to arrive early to register as a Republican, and assure your participation. This will be the only chance for Idahoans to participate in the nomination process for Presidential candidates on the national Republican ticket. The Camas County Chairman, Lee Barron said, “This a new process and we are working hard to help our citizens understand how it will be done,” If you have questions, contact Mr. Barron (539-1071, Camas), Alex Sutter (308-3566, Lincoln), or Dick Elliot (352-4680, Gooding). Five GOP presidential candidates have qualified for Idaho’s March 6 caucus: Texas congressman Ron Paul; former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum; former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and former Louisiana governor and congressman, Buddy Roemer. Idaho will be sending 32 delegates to the national convention, so your involvement is very important.

Dietrich Girls Win State Title

On Saturday, February 18th, the Dietrich Girls Basketball team completed a PERFECT season to take the State 1AD2 Championship. Their first game of the tournament was an easy win against Clark Fork (62 to 32). Their second game with Mackay was a bit harder, but they still came out on top (31 to 25). The championship game against Summit Academy went into overtime, and the Dietrich girls had to fight their way to a 53 to 52 victory. The Blue Devil Girls end this year with 23 wins and zero loses. Congratulation to all the girls and their coaches.

Changes at Soldier Mountain? The economy has been hard on all businesses, but ski areas in southern Idaho took an additional hit this winter with the lack of snow. Areas that are able to make snow have an advantage when nature fail to bring the white stuff, but man-made snow is no substitute for the real thing. This reliance on year to year weather patterns makes ski resorts a difficult business in which to make a profit, and without profit a business can

not continue... indefinitely. The Soldier Mountain Ski Resort has had a long period of lackluster seasons, due mostly to no fault of their own. While losses can be a tax advantage in some cases, there is only so much you can write off. The owner, Valley Entertainment, is fully committed to keeping this family oriented ski hill open, and they have decided that the best way to do that is to offer the resort to a non-profit organization. A nonprofit organization would have funding options that a private business does not have. Earlier this year, a group of individuals in Camas County started meeting together to explore the possibility of taking continued on page 3.....

...but never Compromising the Truth.

...Soldier Mountain continued over the ski resort. Most of these meetings were informal and designed to exchange information. Last Wednesday, however, a more formal meeting was held with the purpose of forming a specific organization to approach Valley Entertainment with a proposal. The tentative name of this organization is the Soldier Mountain Recreation Association. The 45 charter members of this group voted to set up an Action Committee that will move forward with obtaining information. This information will give SMRA the ability to say “YES” or “NO” regarding the take over of the resort. If you would like to join this organization or you want more information, please e-mail: info@soldiermountian.org

...but never Compromising the Truth.

...Gala Dinner continued with Jason and Keith. We haven’t had musical entertainment for a number of years, and we are excited to have Johnny U., Jason and Keith this year. The Gooding County Historical Society is trying to build funds to finish the carpeting of the Museum, primarily the community/reference room along with getting bids for and putting up an awning over the front entrance doors. Additionally; we have a project of raising funds to place the Thorn Creek Schoolhouse on a foundation so it can be open to the public. We have several grants we are applying for which are mainly for preservation of artifacts and different exhibit materials. The GCHS Events Committee is lining up speakers from the Idaho Humanities Council with our first speaker being on April 18th at the Gooding Museum at 7 pm with Arthur Hart who will speak about Idaho’s Railroad History. Admission is free and donations are always welcomed. You may want to come early to ensure the best seating possible. Mr. Hart is Director Emeritus of the Idaho State Historical Society, and is the author of many articles and books on Western history and architecture. His illustrated programs on these subjects have been enthusiastically received by civic and professional groups in state, regional and national meetings. He has received many honors for his work in historic preservation and writing, including the American Institute of Architects’ highest award to a non-architect: an honorary membership. Mr. Hart’s slide presentation surveys the major and minor railroads that once covered Idaho with a network of steel rails. Steam locomotives once pulled all Idaho trains until most of the railroads themselves became obsolete. He will discuss what changed all that. Plans and committees have formed for 3 new exhibits to open this spring at the Gooding County Museum. Two meetings have taken place on the Railroad Exhibit and one committee meeting took place on February 18th for the Veterans Exhibit. The Basque Culture Exhibit is being talked about but has yet to meet. If you have stories or memorabilia on any of these exhibits, please contact Coy Jones at the Museum (934-5318). The Museum opens to the public on April 6th and 7th. Our hours will be 10 am to 4 pm every Friday and Saturday from April through October. We are looking for more volunteers and have several projects to work on. As a non-profit 501-(C) 3 Gooding County Historical Society and Museum, we can’t do what we do without your continued contributions and support. We hope you will be excited with our other upcoming events this year. Come to the Gala Dinner to find out more about them. For more information contact: Gooding County Historical Society - P.O.

Cup of Tee

Idaho’s eight largest city in 1942 had no running water, no sewer systems, no paved streets, no stone buildings and the residences had no freedom to move anywhere in Idaho. How could a city of this size be planned without common city services? The town wasn’t planned as a city to operate in a free society. It was a concentration camp for Japanese Americans. This town was known as Camp Minidoka It is approximately 17 miles northeast of Twin Falls, Idaho or just north of Eden, Idaho in Jerome County. The town consisted of 950 acres with the population near10,000 persons. There were 650 buildings built by the Morrison Knudsen Company. Houses were constructed with low grade 2 x 4 lumber and tar paper. The houses had no interior walls, no insulation, and were heated by coal stoves. With a war going on and rationing across the country, do you think coal fuel was an utmost priority? (Likely not.) The high dessert located area saw temperatures of 104 degrees in the summer and 20 – 30 degrees below zero in the winter. Five miles of barbed wire and eight guard towers topped the town’s perimeter. Hunt was one of ten concentration camps for Japanese Americans during World War II. In addition there were two in California, one Utah, one in Wyoming, two in Arizona, one in Colorado and two in Arkansas. Upon the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 by the Japanese, the Presidental Executive Order #9066 was placed in effect. This was an order by President Roosevelt to create a War Relocation Board. For security reasons the Japanese Americans were to be removed from the West Coast. Nearly 115,000 Japanese Americans were relocated to the ten concentration camps off the West Coast grid. The Japanese Americans were usually given only a days notice of relocation. Needless to say none of them were advised that they were going into cold climates not similar to their current living space. They were shipped out on trains with what they could carry on their person. Their businesses were said to be put in protection. Most of the businesses were looted, assets were frozen, and ending up being sold. Most of the internees of Hunt, Idaho were from Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; and Alaska relocation centers. With Applications for Leave Clearance, the Japanese could join the United States Military if they showed no allegiance to Japan. The 442nd Regiment Combat Team of the United States was formed from the Japanese American concentration camps. They fought in the Italian Campaign and were the most decorated unit with Minidoka having the greatest enlistments and causalities.’ Camp Minidoka Hunt has since been disassembled. The internment camp was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 10, 1979. In 2001 it was established in the National Parks System. 2001, under President Clinton, Minidoka became a national monument. This is my “Cup of Tee” for the Hunt. Hunt, Idaho 1942

...but never Compromising the Truth.

Lincoln Day in Shoshone from Lincoln County Republican Chairman - Alex Sutter Governor C. L. “Butch” Otter keynoted Lincoln County’s Republican Lincoln Day Banquet in Shoshone Saturday evening. The event, which was emceed by Alex Sutter, was attended by several other state officials including Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna and a representative of US Senator Jim Risch. Additionally, many local officials attended including county commissioners, the Lincoln County sheriff and treasurer. The banquet was well attended by county and legislative party officials from all over the Blaine, Lincoln, Gooding and Camas County area. The Boy Scouts presented the State and National flags and led the pledge of allegiance. An invocation was offered. The crowd was estimated at well over 100 people. Local officials added their thoughts and ideas about the present political situation in a mix of speeches that were given. Steve Miller, a business man and rancher from Fairfield and Lee Barron, a retired engineer, also from Fairfield, announced their intention to seek the seats in the House of Representatives from District 26, but the main program was the speeches given by the state officials. Supt. Luna gave an interesting run down on the new laws pertaining to education and informed the group that they would be able to personally vote on the issue in the fall election because the Teacher’s Union has certified a referendum to repeal the law. Mr. Luna urged everyone to make themselves familiar with the law so that they can vote intelligently come election. Attorney General Wasden explained Idaho’s suit that will be heard by the US Supreme Court next month on the Constitutionality of “Obama Care.” He opined that the outcome of this suit will fundamentally direct the future course of the Federal and State governments. Governor Otter wrapped up the evening with his keynote by recapitulating what he and his administration have done to keep Idaho solvent during this crushing recession. He informed the crowd that he was supporting Mitt Romney for President, but that he would fully support the party’s nominee because of the absolute necessity of defeating Barack Obama.

Fish & Game Planting Project JEROME – Wildlife habitat in the Magic Valley is getting a helping hand, and you can be part of that effort. The Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Bureau of Land Management invite area residents to join them in planting bitterbrush and sagebrush at a recently burned area near King Hill this spring. The project is part of the Volunteers for Habitat Restoration program, a cooperative effort to improve upland and riparian wildlife habitat in Southern Idaho. According to Regional Wildlife Habitat Manager Mark Fleming, bitterbrush is a preferred food source where it occurs on mule deer winter range. “The Blair Trail Fire near King Hill severely impacted habitat for wintering mule deer in our region,” said Fleming. “By planting seedlings, we’ll help to jump-start the recovery of this area. Even with intervention, it could take a generation before we see bitterbrush begin to thrive again.” continued on page 10.....

Sagebrush seedlings are a key component of habitat for the greater sage-grouse, a species of concern in Idaho. Shrub seedlings are important for a variety of game and non-game species alike. The agencies feel that volunteers are a key component in their efforts to preserve fish and wildlife for future generations. “When a person works on the landscape, they’ve made an investment in that landscape, and people tend to protect their investments,” said IDFG Volunteer Coordinator Ed Papenberg. “Besides, it’s just plain fun,” he continued. “You get to spend time in open country and meet people.” Each planting effort is an all-day affair including driving time, and participants need to prepare for any weather. Planting will take place at various sites near King Hill on the first three Saturdays in April. Interested? Call the Idaho Dept. of Fish & Game at 324-4359 and speak to Ed Papenberg.
