News New Bluebird Group To Meet

The new Southern Idaho Mountain Bluebird Association will hold its inaugural meeting at 5 p.m. on March 13th at the Depot Grill (545 Shoshone St. South) in Twin Falls. Bluebirds are found throughout the United States, but the Mountain Bluebird with its distinctive sky-blue wings, light blue chest and white abdomen nests only above 5000 feet in the mountain areas of Idaho, Montana and Nevada. During breeding season, Mountain Bluebirds seek out open areas with a mix of short grasses, shrubs, and trees, at elevations of up to 12,500 feet. They gravitate toward prairie and tundra edges, meadows, sagebrush flats, pastures, and recently burned or clear-cut areas. Along roadsides, they seek out nest boxes or nesting cavities that face away from roads. The Eastern bluebird with its rusty throat and breast covers most of the United States east of the Mississippi River and the Western Bluebird with rusty breast and white stomach is found from British Columbia south along the coastal mountains to Baja California.

Chinese Gold Mining In the Snake River Canyon

Gold has been an important part of Idaho history, but most people know very little about the gold mining sites along the Snake River Canyon, nor the role played by Chinese emigrants in the 1870s. Ronald James teaches English and Advanced Placement Literature and Composition at Canyon Ridge High School and is an adjunct Cultural Anthropology instructor at the College of Southern Idaho. He has done extensive archaeological and ethnographic research on the Chinese and Japanese contributions to southern Idaho history. His thesis, ‘Ruins of a World: Chinese Gold Mining in the Snake River Canyon’ was published in 1993. Next Wednesday, March 14th, at 7:00 p.m. Ronald James will present a public lecture on the excavation of the Mon-Yung site in the Snake River canyon and the history of gold mining in Southern Idaho.

Major tax cut passes Senate The Senate yesterday approved a major tax cut for Idahoans. Having already passed the House, it now heads to Gov. Otter for his signature. The bill, designed to conform Idaho’s tax code with new federal tax law, lowers income tax rates for individuals and businesses. All of the rates go from 7.4 percent to 6.925 percent – a 0.475 percent reduction. Had we merely synced Idaho’s tax code with changes at the federal level, Idaho taxpayers would have paid $97.4 million more in taxes. This bill not only offsets that increase, but adds another $104.5 million in tax relief. This tax relief is a big step in Republicans’ ongoing efforts to maintain fiscal discipline and lower taxes for the people of Idaho. One of the reasons we’re the fastest-growing state is because we are committed to being fiscally conservative. People fleeing high-tax, highspending states like California want to live in a state where the government doesn’t think it has first rights to their hard-earned dollars. Focus on school safety Republicans are addressing the crucial issue of school safety with a variety of bills:

House Bill 588, crafted with input from law enforcement, would update existing law against making threats against schools. It adds threats made electronically - for example, on social media - and allows law enforcement to act. It also makes it a felony to be in possession of a dangerous weapon when making a threat. House Bill 443 would authorize and encourage school districts to adopt and offer an elective course in firearms safety education and to authorize instructors who will teach the courses. It passed the House yesterday. House Bill 565 would allow retired law enforcement officers to carry their guns with them on school grounds. It passed the House Wednesday. About those science standards... There’s been some rather misleading coverage on proposed updates to Idaho’s school science teaching standards. The state standards are being updated to improve science instruction and emphasize the importance of inquiry on the part of students. Some news stories have left the impression that House Republicans “gutted” the standards. In fact, of 327 proposed new standards, all but one were approved. Other sections called “supporting content” – designed to help teachers in teaching the standards – were removed by the House because some members were concerned about putting curriculum guidance into law, instead of leaving it up to the school districts. That supporting content would still be available to teachers from the State Superintendent’s office.

Letter to the Editor

Cowboy Poetry & Music, and Message by Scotty Brown, Justin & Mindi Palmer Next Meeting April 14th

Dear Editor, Thank you Brad Little for showing your commitment to education.

...Bluebird Group Meeting continued

Bluebirds are cavity nesters and with the clearing of trees and brush areas nesting availability has become sparse and the bluebird population is threatened. Bluebird enthusiasts establish a Bluebird Trail of nesting boxes which bluebirds are quick to claim. They lay 4-6 lovely little blue eggs that hatch within 12-17 days and the young leave the nest after another 13-23 days. The box should then be cleaned in preparation for second brood. Those who establish a trail, clean and monitor their boxes, also make a yearly report that helps Cornell University in Ithaca, New York make recommendations concerning the status of the US bluebird population. The Southern Idaho Mountain Bluebird Association will support and encourage birders who wish to facilitate the return of the bluebirds to the Camas Prairie and the South Hills. All are invited to this free meeting which will be a time to share and learn as we enjoy the comradery of the “Blues.” Questions may be directed to Barry at 208-420-1191, Nancy at 208-358-5807 or

2017 Total Deer And Elk Harvest Above Average

by Roger Phillips, Public Information Specialist

Hunters took more elk and white-tailed deer in 2017 than in 2016, but mule deer harvest was down. With a much milder winter so far, Fish and Game biologists expect the drop in mule deer harvest to be short lived as herds recover from last year’s difficult winter across Central and Southern Idaho. The 2017 elk harvest was about 17.5 percent above the 10-year average, and despite the dip in the mule deer harvest, 2017’s overall deer harvest was still slightly above the 10-year average. Elk hunters are enjoying some of the best hunting in recent history. Harvest was up by 1,242 elk in 2017 over 2016, which was largely an increase in cow harvest. The bull harvest dropped 341 animals between 2016 and 2017. Fish and Game increased cow hunting opportunities to reduce herds that are causing damage to private lands in parts of the state. Idaho’s elk harvest has exceeded 20,000 elk for four straight years, which hasn’t happened since the mid 1990s. Idaho’s elk herds have grown in recent years thanks in part to mild winters, but elk don’t typically suffer the same fate as mule deer when winter turns colder and snowier. “Elk are much hardier animals and less susceptible to environmental conditions,” Fish and Game Deer and Elk Coordinator Daryl Meints said. “It has to be a tough winter to kill elk.” The 2017 deer harvest dropped by 11,426

animals compared with 2016, which included a slight increase in white-tailed deer harvested, but 11,574 fewer mule deer harvested. In response to last year’s hard winter, Fish and Game’s wildlife managers reduced antlerless hunting opportunities for mule deer in 2017 to protect breeding-age does and help the population bounce back more quickly. That resulted in 2,517 fewer antlerless mule deer harvested. Fish and Game’s mule deer monitoring last winter showed only 30 percent survival for fawns, which was the second-lowest since winter monitoring started 20 years ago. Those male fawns would have been two-points or spikes in the fall had they survived, which typically account for a large portion of the mule deer buck harvest. Harvest statistics showed hunters took 3,709 fewer two points or spikes in 2017 than in 2016. Mule deer tend to run on a “boom and bust” cycle, and “every few years, you’re going to have a winter when this happens,” Meints said. However, it tends to be fairly short-lived unless there are consecutive winters with prolonged deep snow and/or frigid temperatures. While mule deer hunting was down, whitetail hunting remains solid and stable, and hunters took more whitetails than mule deer last fall, which is rare for Idaho. The whitetail harvest in 2016 and 2017 hovering just below the all-time harvest record of 30,578 set in 2015.

Lisa Michelle Bulcher

Lisa Michelle Bulcher, 52, of Shoshone, Idaho, left this world too soon on Thursday, March 1, 2018. Lisa was born March 29, 1965 in Jerome, Idaho, the first-born daughter of Donald Scott Erwin and Regina Ann (Murua) Erwin. Lisa was raised in Richfield, Idaho, where she attended Richfield High School. Throughout Lisa’s life she enjoyed spending time on the desert treasure hunting antiques, bottles, and arrow heads. She was an avid rock collector and her dream was to be a geologist. She also adopted wild, native flowers from the desert and moved them to her home. She enjoyed time at Magic Reservoir where she and her beloved husband, Bret, spent time cruising on their boat and ATV. Opposite from the Idaho desert, she loved the ocean and went to the Oregon Coast and Hawaii on several trips. Lisa surrounded herself with anything that lit up such as outdoor solar lights and Christmas lights up year-around on her mantel. Lisa was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved spending time with her grandchildren which were the apple of her eye. Lisa is survived by Bret, her devoted husband of twenty years; her children, Desirae Peterson, Jarred Hubsmith, Joel (Crystal) Taylor, Andrew Taylor, Amber (Kaden) Bulcher, and Chalayne (Solomon) Christensen; 13 grandchildren; her mother, Regina Murua; and sister, Tina (Kevin) Lakey.

Cup of Tee

Last week I stopped in Glenn Ferry, Idaho, on my way home from Burley, Idaho, to drop off some postcards at the post office. The night was with little moonlight and cold. I believe the temperature got up to 10 degrees for the day. I found the post office and stopped out front to run my postcard in. I opened the car door and stepped outside my car. When I look down, I saw the “L” button on my door handle was down (the “L” stands for “locked door”). Before I could cure my mistake of bumping the door latch accidentally, the wind slammed my door shut. There are 20 wind turbines on the hills just outside Glenns Ferry that are producing 42 mega-watts of power from the wind I was receiving (the wind usually blows 8 mph consistently). I think a couple of the turbines were on slack mode and didn’t use enough wind to keep my door from being slammed shut. In the background I heard a voice that said... “Tee Hurd, you are the next contestant for nature’s Let’s Make a Deal. Go ahead and stand right where you are in a “tee” shirt and we’ll start this game. You can have what’s behind car door number one for starters. Lovely weather assistant, please show Tee what he can have if he chooses door number one.” “Mister Nature, we have an ignition key for the 1997 Ford Escort attached to a pretty key chain.” “But, Tee, don’t be too hasty on your decision. You can have what’s behind car door number two with ten more minutes in the cold. Go ahead lovely weather assistant, tell Tee what could have behind door number two.” “Mister Nature, we have a nice brown work coat with a nice warm lining.” “Now, Tee, we are prepared to give you

what’s behind car door number two and what’s behind car door number three - a flashlight - or you can get the surprise of what’s behind car door number four. But, it will cost you, $40 for a locksmith. What will it be, Tee Hurd?” By now the cold weather pressure was really pushing me. Would I make a wrong decision? I needed the coat, the flashlight, and of course my locked-in keys. I threw up my hands and said I’ll take the keys behind door number one! Then the voice of Mr. Nature of Nature’s Let’s Make a Deal said, “Tee, that’s a good choice, but we forgot to mention to you on car door choice number one, you must get them out yourself. Sorry, Tee. Good luck!” I borrowed a coat hanger from the neighbors who were pulling out to go somewhere. I tried to use a stick to pry my door, but it kept breaking. I then borrowed an addition flat screwdriver from another neighbor. My fingers were getting numb and my arms/ shoulders in a “tee” shirt were getting cold. Being really dark outside and not being able to see which direction my coat hanger was joy riding inside my car, I was getting nowhere. A fellow pulled up to the post office. He saw me working a wire inside my car window. He looked at my license plates - Idaho 1/G - and realized I wasn’t from around there. Then he started towards the post office door. I told him I had locked my keys in the car. He realized I wasn’t stealing it and shined a flashlight so I could see my door latch. In a few seconds the door was open. I was thankful for people who believe in helping others. This is my “Cup of Iced Tee.”
