Harassment In The Workplace The number one form of harassment in the workplace is sexual harassment. We generally think of this as a lecherous boss threatening his secretary’s job if she doesn’t do what he wants, but that is relatively uncommon. Most sexual harassment comes from casual conversations. Last week’s article on harassment in the workplace centered around gossip. While there are lots of ways that activity can get people into trouble, a surefire way of creating problems is to talk about sex. An occasional off-color joke is not necessarily harassment. It becomes harassment when this kind of behavior becomes habitual and starts to affect a person job performance. Clearly, if you engage in conversations like this on a regular basis, you are not doing your work. The bigger problem, however, is the person sitting at the next desk trying to get some work done. This is the person who will be offended, and if so, they have every right to file a sexual harassment complaint. At the February 27th workshop in Lincoln County, Jim McNall from Idaho Counties Risk Management Program (ICRMP) said this is a big problem with younger workers. Older workers tend to be more discrete with sexual conversations. Younger workers, on the other hand, seem to have no qualms about talking in great detail about their escapades. The bottom line is that conversations or jokes about sex have no place the in workplace. DON’T DO IT! That includes e-mails, phone calls, visiting web sites, or anything else you can think of. ----------Note: Sexual harassment is sexual harassment regardless of whether the person being harassed is heterosexual or homosexual. The ongoing effort to amend Idaho’s Human Rights Act to add the words “sexual orientation” and/or “gender identity” would have no affect on this. Adding those words may, however, have the unintended consequence of complicating when and where sexual conversations can take place.

Senator Wrestling Brings Home the GOLD The 55th annual Idaho State Wrestling Tournament sponsored by the Idaho High School Activities Association was held February 24th and 25th at Holt Arena in Pocatello. Idaho's top wrestlers in 5A, 4A, 3A and 2A classifications competed for gold and State Championships. The Senators were well represented with ten Gooding High School wrestlers in the 2A field and brought home not one, but TWO STATE CHAMPIONS - Torin Brunson in the 152 weight class and Cole McGinnis in the 285 weight class. Eric Finley placed 4th in the State and freshmen Josh Finley finished 5th in the State tournament. Overall the Senators placed 8th in the 2A State finals. -------------------------------------

Dietrich Boys Take Third In boys basketball, the Dietrich Blue Devil Boys took third in the State 1AD2 Tournament after playing three close games. After winning their first game of the tournament against Sho-Ban (58 to 55) they faced off with the Carey Panthers. In a game dominated by defense by both teams, Dietrich fell to Carey 38 to 36. In their last game of the tournament, the Dietrich boys held on to win a tough game against Castleford (40 to 39) to give them the third place trophy. In 1AD1 Basketball, Glenns Ferry took the Championship starting with a decisive win over Horseshoe Bend (95 to 57). Their second game against Genesee took them into overtime, but they held on to win by one point (34 to 33). The championship game ended with a 64 to 59 win over Lapwai.

Glendora J. Owens Written by Cody Sheer, Granddaughter: Glendora Jeffery Owens was born in the Mud Lake, Idaho area on December 3, 1924 to Percy V. Jeffery and Elsie Muncey Jeffery. She joined her brother Lee V. Jeffery. She enjoyed being raised on the family ranch with sheep, dogs, cattle, and her favorite - horses. She attended grammar school in Mud Lake and went into Roberts for High School. Here she met the love of her life, Milton L. Owens. They were married on July 17, 1939 in Pocatello and lived in Idaho Falls for a short time. Milt served in the Navy during WWII, during which time they lived in Olympia, Washington where Glendora was an electrician in the ship yards. They then moved to Ketchum, Idaho and worked in the Alpine Bar & Cafe, which they later purchased. She was a waitress and Milt was a chef. She was very happy when working the breakfast shift and taking great care of her regular customers, always pleasant and on the run! During their years in Ketchum, Glendora and Milt had the friendship and respect of many townspeople, who regarded them highly, as did the customers who patronized their business. During their ownership, Glendora and Milt gave the Alpine a great reputation with their good service and fine cuisine. Most of their employees and customers became lifelong friends. Glendora enjoyed her horse. She and Milt enjoyed many pack trips to the lakes for fishing and camping. They had a large group of friends that joined them on many outings. The horse lovers got together on Thursday evenings and went for a dinner ride. The rides always started at the Owens corral. Following the sale of the Alpine, and later the passing of Milt, Glendora moved to Palm Springs, California. Once again, she ambitiously served her customers as a waitress. She enjoyed traveling the western United States, especially visiting her son Kirby in Bullhead City, Arizona. In the 1980’s Glendora relocated to Shoshone to be near her daughter and other family members. She later moved to Gooding, and then to Bennett Hills Care Center. Glendora was preceded in death by her parents, Percy V. and Elsie M. Jeffery, brother, Lee Jeffery, mother-in-law, Alice Evans, husband Milt Owens, and son, Kirby Owens. Survivors include daughter Lynda (Harold) Knight of Gooding; grandchildren Cody Scheer (Kevan Varin) of Gooding; Andy (Kathleen) Knight of Lemhi; Glenda Knight (Clay Crawford) of Gooding; and Carrie (Bill) Sheaffer of Pocatello; as well as eight great-grandchildren; and two great-great grandchildren. God called home a beautiful new angel ... Ma (our grandma, Glenny, Glendora Owens) passed away February 23, 2012. We have been very lucky in our family to have known, loved, and been loved by 5 grandmas. Each one of them touched our lives in their very own unique special grandma way. Anyone who knew Ma knows that this lady was not the “typical” grandma. We definitely did not learn how to sew, bake cookies or be girly girls from this lady. She was the grandma that knew how to play! She worked hard and she played hard. She loved to ride her horse and was

always ready to tell stories about the fabulous trail rides and pack trips she went on with the riding club. Ma was our grandma that would say: “Come on, let’s go fishing,” “Come on, let’s go camping,” “Come on I’ll show you how to have fun!” She taught us to fish, even showed us how to put those slimy squirmy worms on the hook. I think she liked fishing with Andy best since he would actually fish instead of talking and scaring the fish away like she always said I did. She could get mad at us too ... and not be one bit afraid of letting us know about it... like when Andy and I would try to make Glenda ride the Saint Bernard between Ma and Pa’s house and the Alpine. Oh boy that was definitely the wrong thing to do! She was always there for all of us for whatever the need might be. Mom and Dad went on a trip for a few days when we were little and Grandma Alice came to stay with us. After a couple days and a service call to Rotor Rooter to unclog Carrie’s flushed diaper Alice decided 4 kids were too much for her to handle. Ma came to her rescue and took over. It did not take her very long to get us right back in line as it was much more difficult to pull the wool over her eyes than Grandma Alice’s. We have been very blessed and fortunate to share her life as long as we have. As we grew up, and eventually had families of our own she was always there with pride to celebrate and share in our accomplishments, births, and triumphs. On the same token, she was always there for us with love, strength, and support during our down falls, losses, and tragedies. Ma, you are missed but I so hope you have that mischievous twinkle back in your eye, that big smile on your face, and that your welcoming party was everything you always dreamed it would be! I know heaven is a greater place with you there ... Love you Ma! ... Till we meet again... Written by Glenda J. Knight, Granddaughter: Although I feel immense sadness for the loss of an amazing grandmother, I also feel truly fortunate for having shared her life. Whether it was fishing at Penny Lake, watching us in a horse show or parade, or celebrating our important milestones, Ma was always there with a smile! She was free with encouraging words, but didn’t hold her tongue, should we need a reality check! How fortunate we are to have shared her life as long as we have. I’m thankful for my daughters having known their greatgrandma. She shared with them many of her childhood memories - usually involving horseback riding or favorite dogs. Madison’s love of her sheep undoubtedly comes from Ma’s blood, as does Kendal’s love for her pony. Some of Ma’s more mischievous stories surely planted seeds in their young minds... Ma, we love and miss you! I envision your welcoming party - the happiness so many are feeling to see you again! Celebrate well and enjoy the reunion! ---------------------------A memorial graveside service will be held at a later date at the Ketchum Cemetery. In lieu of flowers please send memorial contributions to the charity of your choice. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the obituary link at www.demarayfuneralservice.com.

from the Editor

Should you have to apologize to a liar? If that person is a liar and you call them one, then the answer is no. But what if your comments go far beyond that particular issue? What if, in a fit of utter disgust, you refer to that individual as a whore, a pimp, a bigot, or a racist? Last week, Rush Limbaugh made some very unkind comments about a young lady who was testifying to congress regarding the ongoing controversy over religious organizations being forced to provide contraception to employees and/or students. The statement made by the young lady that caused all the commotion was her claim that birth control pills can cost as much as $3000 during law school which can take 2 to 3 years to complete. That means (if this young lady is correct) birth control pills cost $1000 to $1500 per year. Is that true? According to Planned Parenthood, birth-control pills cost $15 to $50 per month. That is $180 to $600 per year. If a person uses Depo-Provera (a birth control shot), the cost is $140 to $300 per year. The newest, top of the line birth control pills can cost $80 per month or $960 per year, but that is a very small percentage of what is being used by women in America. On the other end of the spectrum, Target offers birth control pills at some of their locations for as little as $9 per month. It should be noted that birth control pills are not just used for contraception. This medication is also used to help women with Endometriosis and other conditions. This too, represents a small percentage of why and how birth control pills are used. So, how much money, on average, does it cost a woman to use birth control? About $200 to $400 per year, not counting any exam fees. As a comparison, Americans consume on average two cups of coffee a day. The average amount of money spent on coffee (for all Americans, not just the drinkers) is about $1100 per year. That means coffee drinkers can spend between $1400 to $2800 per year on coffee. Should Rush Limbaugh have said what he said about this young lady? No, and he apologized for his off-color comments. That did not change the fact that she was lying, but it did prove one very important thing... Mr. Limbaugh is a man of honor. The truth is that far worse (disgusting) things have been said about Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Laura Ingraham, and other conservative women by members of liberal media. Have we heard any apologies for those comments? NO!

Camas Library - Bits & Bytes The Camas County Library would like to thank Carol Rast for presenting a most interesting program on gardening on March 5th. We learned about growing seedlings which included topics such as the benefits, drawbacks and what a person needs to start growing seedlings. Carol also explained and showed how to transplant seedlings from a small container to a larger one. Two people from the audience had the chance to practice this with Carol and were given the pepper plants they transplanted Among other things we also learned what not to do which contained information such as not using old seed, making sure not to neglect culling and thinning the plants, hardening the plants by setting them out in the day so they gradually get used to our weather (which includes the wind) before planting and much more. Even more topics were covered at the Brown Bag which can definitely be counted as a success. At the end of the program there was question answer period and everyone in attendance was given the gift of a tomato seedling that Carol had started. This was another great Brown Bag Lunch and Learn.

Thank you Carol!

Cup of Tee

Did anyone ever wonder what an epitaph (final words) of an antique tractor were? The list would be long with numerous entries of script. Here is an example of one such in the first person. My family has been around since the 1890’s. Personally I was born in 1956, in the central 48 states of the United States, off the Mississippi River network. Alaska and Hawaii wasn’t even states then. When I was born my paint was bright and shiny. Before I was even two months I rode a train to a dealership. I may have ridden piggyback on a truck. Once at the dealerships, I was the attraction of the show grounds and yes – show floor. My proud adopting family drove me to their (my) home. I was the heart of the home. I replaced many old hay burning horses. They were sent to the pasture and I got the barn. If there was an old implement that needed pulled, I was the one. As farmers confidence grew, I got to be the first to try out new implements, so often the first for miles around! I was treated to lunch at many a farm. Gasoline was gasoline then. We worked seven days a week from daylight to dark. Some of my relatives were cranks (hand cranks). I was lucky to be an electric start. In fact, I was given new glasses (headlights) so I could see better in the dark. I was given a hydraulic lift to make my lifting easier. Calcium was added to my shoes (tires). I could really keep myself down to business. I was like a tractor on steroids then. Many a boy learned to drive on me making me a teacher as well. As you know, all good things must come to an end. I was not very old when the United States Government needed more and more. My bigger more horse-powered cousins were replacing ones like me. Soon we were left on the farm to do small menial tasks. Many of us (one’s my age) were left outside. We no longer had the luxury of a barn. The elements; rain, sun, hail, wind, sleet and snow started taking the toll. Many of us got sick and couldn’t work. We got water in our oil, calcium seeped out of our rims, dirt choked our airways, our batteries were frozen with acid seeping throughout our fine tin work, our seals dried and our colors became dull and unattractive. Why couldn’t we be sold to another farm? I was proud to say I have never cussed until now. Cheap gas has made me cough. I have even taken up smoking. Other of my relatives that were my age were stripped of their dignity (parted out) or left naked against the landscape. Many were retired without use, handicapped forever. The less fortunate tractors were sent to the recyclers where they were ground like bone meal. When did I actually die? I died when I was no longer loved as a family member. Is there heaven for antique tractors? I can only hope that some antique tractor pullers will give me new shoes (tires), good fuel, straighten and paint my tin work, and give me another chance to serve America the Land of Plenty to parade once more. This is my tractor sized “Cup of Tee” – rust free.

March is Colon Cancer Awareness Month TWIN FALLS-March 2012 marks the continued observance of National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. The goal of this national observance is to generate widespread awareness about colorectal cancer and to encourage people to learn more about prevention of the disease through regular screening and a healthy lifestyle. Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancerrelated death in Idaho, with only lung cancer taking the lives of more men and women. From 2005-2009, 2,988 Idahoans were diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and there were 1,052 deaths from colorectal cancer. The primary risk factor for colon cancer is increasing age. Ninety percent of cases are found in persons over the age of 50. Other risk factors include family history of colorectal cancer or colorectal polyps; a personal history of colon cancer, colon polyps, or inflammatory bowel disease; a diet high in animal fats or low in fiber; sedentary lifestyle; overweight and obesity; smoking; heavy alcohol use; and women with diabetes. It is estimated that 75 percent of those with colon cancer have no family history of the disease. If you do have a family history, you are at an increased risk for colorectal cancer, and screening should begin at an earlier age and be done more often. Regular screening can often find colorectal cancer early when it is most likely to be curable. In many cases, screening can also prevent colorectal cancer altogether. For more information about colon cancer or about the local colon cancer advisory board, call Susie Beem at 737-5946.

Fish & Game Open House

NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING

JEROME – Wildlife Management Area (WMA) management plans and future fishing opportunities in the Magic Valley Region are just a few of the things that will be discussed at an Idaho Department of Fish and Game meeting being held in Hagerman. The meeting will be March 28, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Hagerman Senior Community Center at 140 Lake Street. “These meetings are a great chance for us to get some feedback from sportsman on how they would like to see the WMA’s managed,” said Mark Fleming, Regional Habitat Manager. Top priorities on the management plans for the Billingsley Creek, Big Cottonwood, Carey Lake, Camas Prairie-Centennial Marsh, Hagerman, and Niagara Springs WMA’s, include: Ø Public access management Ø Recreational use management Ø Waterfowl hunting on the Hagerman WMA Ø Pheasant release-and-harvest program Ø Dog-trials and other organized events The current management plans for each of the WMAs and the on-line surveys are available at: https://fishandgame.idaho.gov/ifwis/ portal/form/2012-wildlife-management-area-public-opinion-survey The fisheries staff are seeking feedback from anglers about specific fishing opportunities they would like to see that would require rule changes for the 2013-2014 fishing rules as well as ideas for overall management goals. “The Statewide Fisheries Management Plan is a five year plan that sets broad management goals and sideboards for fish management statewide,” said Doug Megargle, Regional Fisheries Manager. “The existing plan expires this year and the Department wants to hear from folks about any changes they’d like to see incorporated into the new plan. “We need to hear from folks on these issues – both the fisheries plan and the regulations affect how you use Idaho’s fishing resources and what type of experience anglers can expect,” he continued. For more information on the meetings or for people unable to attend that would like to provide feedback, they can call 208-324-4359, or go online to MVFishery@idfg.idaho.gov.
