News Dietrich Girls Make History

With a fourth straight 1AD2 Championship in Basketball, the Dietrich girls have become the second program in state history to do so. Last Saturday at the Ford Idaho Center, the Dietrich Blue Devil Ladies took on the Mackay Miners. It was a close low scoring game throughout, with Dietrich never in the lead by more than five points, and the teams left the court at halftime with the score tied at 8 to 8. The Blue Devils came out to take the second half by scoring on nearly 30% of their shots and ending the game with 31 points to Mackay’s 26. The top scoring players were Jacey Shaw and Katee Hubert who each scored 13 points. Their other tournament games included wins over Council (47-29) and Rockland (35-34). Head Coach Acey Shaw

couldn’t be more proud of his girls and with the loss of only one senior, he may yet have another opportunity to take the Blue Devil Ladies to the state tournament next year. The only other school to win four championships in a row was Meridian (class 5A) between 1980 and 1983. The Hagerman Pirate Ladies met with disappointment at the state tournament, losing their first game 33 to 47 against Prairie (the team that went on to win the 1AD1 Tournament). They went on to win their second game 50

Senator Crapo in Gooding

The national debt is the number one problem facing America today, according to Senator Mike Crapo. Last Thursday, Senator Crapo spoke with the Gooding Chamber of Commerce at their monthly meeting and outlined what our Congress is and is not doing to reduce the debt. For the past three years, he has served on the Bowles

Simpson Commission, a commission set up to address the national debt. Despite the politics which have gripped our national government in gridlock, the members of the commission have in fact agreed on several things. First, YES, there is a debt crisis. Specifically, no country in history has ever been able to continued on page 6.....

to 20 over Notus, but Challis took their last game with a 30 to 27 win. ––– The Boy’s 1AD2 District Championship will be played this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Gooding High. Dietrich is the favorite team and will play either Richfield or Carey. The Wendell boys will be in American Falls this Thursday to play Dayton H.S. at 7 p.m. If they win, they will have one more play-in game on Saturday in Mountain Home to earn a spot in the State Tournament.

Patricia Ann Thomas

Patricia Ann Thomas, beloved sister of Laurie Villeneuve and Mary Kelly, left this world Feb. 18, 2014, in Boise, Idaho, to be with her Heavenly Father for all eternity. Patty was born April 16, 1930; the first of four children, to parents Albert and Pearl Thomas, in Portland Oregon. She loved her family, many friends, and had a love for all animals, especially chickens. She spent many hours drawing pictures of chickens many of which adorn the pages of hymn books at church. Patty was preceded in death by her parents, grandparents, and one brother who was born on February 18, 1944. She leaves behind her two sisters, Mary and Laurie, as well as many nieces and nephews. She had a special place in the hearts of five nieces, with whom she lived with for many years; Laila Jeffries, Debra Zatica, Mary Holloway, Tami Hunter, and Patricia Moore. “Aunt Pat” will be greatly missed but she is now in her Heavenly Home, for all eternity and has a whole new body. Rejoicing around God’s Throne with loved ones. She was truly one of God’s “special” flowers in His Creation. She is, at last, free of the earthly body that she was confined in for nearly 84 years. The family wishes to thank the medical staff at Boise Samaritan Village, who gave her such tender and loving care during her last years.

...Crapo in Gooding continued

sustain a debt to GDP (Gross Domestic Product) ratio of more than 90%, something our country is dangerously close to. Once a country crosses that threshold, it is virtually impossible for that country to dig itself out of the hole. Secondly, reducing the national debt requires specific and direct action. During one of the commission’s hearing at which several economic plans were presented, an economist was asked which plan he would choose. He answered by pointing to one particular plan, but then said, “The truth is that any of these plans will help, some better than others, but any one of these plans will work better that doing nothing.” Sadly, that is exactly what our congress and the president have done over that last several years - nothing. The single worst thing that has happened is that congress has not passed a budget. Senator Crapo said that, while Congress regularly finds ways around budgets, not setting one has made it almost impossible to stop excess spending. The only tool to limit spending right now is the debt ceiling, a tool most politicians are unwilling to use. Eventually, if Congress continues doing nothing about the debt, the bond market will correct the problem. Currently, the Federal Reserve is buying a large percentage of our nation’s bonds, but we still rely heavily on other countries like China to finance our debt. The Federal Reserve has also been keeping interest rates extremely low, mainly because an increase in interest rates would make it impossible for the U.S. to borrow money. The U.S. use to borrow monthly, then weekly. Today we are borrowing money on a daily basis. At some point other countries will not be willing to lend us money at these low interest rates they will want more, or some other country will be willing to offer more. When that happens, the U.S. will wake up one morning to find that no one is buying our bonds. If history is any indication, the economic repercussions will be nearly instantaneous. While not unanimous, the Bowles Simpson Commission came to the conclusion that three things are needed to reduce the debt: One, a budget that reduces spending and increases revenue (the target is 4 trillion - 3 in reduced spending and 1 in increase revenue); Two, reform the IRS by simplifying the tax code and making it more equitable to everyone; and three, reform entitlement programs to make them sustainable. Over 60% of the commission members (Democrats and Republicans) support this plan, but in order to send the plan to Congress they need a supermajority (2/3). Senator Crapo said there is growing support for this plan, especially with recent reports by the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) that indicate that our yearly deficit will increase over the next ten years from 500 billion to over 1 trillion (mostly due to the Affordable Care Act). At the end of the meeting, Senator Crapo shared what another economists said to the commission, “If Congress will make a positive move towards reducing our debt, it will have a world wide effect on the economy, the likes of which we have never seen before.”

2039 Main Street ~ Gooding

What are cow hides used for? The best answer to that question is to hold the cow together. “Cow lingo” became a language of its own around 1835 and is still used today. In 1885 the beef business was the biggest business in all the Old West. How did this business get its start? The biggest contributing events that made the U.S. a major cattle grower were: available land, water, stock availability, the Texas Mexican War, stock reproduction, change of the American diet, mining, the Civil War, grasses, elimination of the buffalo, railroads, processing, lobbying of legislation and foreign investors. With the expansion of the United States west of the Mississippi River, land became available for a multitude of uses. Cattle people saw their use from early in the westward advancement. Their means of acquiring land were legal as well as illegal. With cattle drinking up to 30 gallons of water a day, each, water became a number one requirement. Once water areas were secured, then the rich grasses became a second to cattle health. After the Texas Mexican War many of the once Mexican owned cattle were abandoned. These cattle were known as mavericks or basically wild cattle. Many were hunted similar to wild game. Early cattlemen, namely Texans, gathered these cattle to sell, as a business. A calf was born approximately every nine months. With herds, wild and captured, that brought the cattle to great numbers. Cattle owners pushed the cattle to new areas to sell. A lot of the early Texas cattle were sent east of the Mississippi River with further ventures of a north movement to follow. The primary U.S. diet was pork until beef started to replace it. Cattle began to reach the mining camps where beef sold for more than miner’s wages. During the Civil war many cattle owners fought in the Confederacy. Cattle grew to large numbers during the five years of vacancy from home. Once again a free market to draw cash. With buffalo eating the natural grasses cattle weren’t able to compete. Buffalo were eliminated by the hundreds of thousands. Of course, during this time the native American Indians were being taken from their lands as well. During these campaigns a lot of beef was government bought for military posts and nearby settlements. The railroad in its earliest setting was able to move cattle from place to place fairly quickly without cattle weight loss. After the Civil War railways were again built with the Western expansion. Packing facilities were many time railroad destinations. Chicago, Illinois was major hub for the beef movement east. With cattle being big business cattle barons and cattle owners created their own laws for protection. Many of the early legislators were “beef” backed. Laws of the West were many times according to impromptu courts. And, of course, barbed wire created many issues for land use, cattle ownership, and cattle breeding, good and bad. Many cattle barons (mainly three dozen) controlled the whole market and would get the publicity they needed by stories of larger than real profits. It wasn’t long until foreign markets couldn’t wait to invest in the action. For numerous reasons, the beef business started from the ground up. This is my “Cup of Tee”-boned - gravy. Tee Hurd Footnote: gravy is sometimes used to cover up less desirebles.

Spider Woman’s Daughter

by Ann Hillerman

For anyone who has read Tony Hillerman’s series about crime fighting on the Navajo reservation in New Mexico, this book is going to feel like slipping into your most comfortable jeans and t-shirt and tying your hair back out of the dry, hot wind. Tony may have passed, but Chee and Leaphorn live on thanks to Tony’s daughter, Ann. She has picked up his pen and carried on with his characters like she knows them inside and out. And what’s the first thing she tries to do with her dad’s old friends? Tries to kill them off, of course. I must say that while these books pay tribute to the Navajo tribe, they also make it seem like the Navajos are the most humorless, boring tribe on earth. Great pots, superior weaving, respect and veneration to the max along with some crime and drug addiction, but if comedy lives in this tribe, they keep it under the teepee.

Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. There will be jobs for everyone: Sorting artifacts, labeling and identifying for displays or storage. The theme for the Museum this year is based on everything Military. The Gooding County Museum will open on April 4th and 5th and will be open until October. The deadline is getting close for the annual Gala Dinner Fundraiser put on by the Gooding County Historical Society. Be sure to get your tickets before March 10th so that we can let Coates Caterer know how many people will be there for dinner. The entertainment will be Andy Morris and Junior which promises to be uplifting to our theme of “We Honor the Red, White, Blue, and YOU!” You can get your dinner tickets at United Metals across from Blackcat Pellet Mill in Gooding or from any of the GCHS board members. The Gala dinner tickets are only $30 per person. We have a few Museum projects that the money will go towards like the Thorn Creek School and landscaping around the Museum.

...Soldier Mountain Closing

son pass. Go to for additional early bird specials. Soldier Mountain now has the snow it needed to open - 35 inches at the base, and 44 inches at the summit. However, in a typical season the large skier count in December financially carries the operations of the mountain through to the end of the season. Without the early open, there isn’t enough money for the daily operations. Currently, Soldier Mountain Ski Area’s daily operation costs are about $1600. “It costs Soldier about $18,000 a month just to keep the place open,” says operations manager, Kristi Schiermeier. The board of directors are reworking the structure of the nonprofit, including the addition of board of directors, and a strategic plan for fundraising to support and protect the organizations operations in the future. All donations made to the nonprofit are tax deductible.
