Oil Spill Prevention

Turning Body Art Into Business

The USDA’s Spill, Prevention, Control and Countermeasure initiative was designed to help agricultural producers in Idaho comply with revised Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations for on-farm oil spills. The Natural Resources Conservation Service is accepting applications for the initiative through May 4, 2012. EPA’s revised Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulations require agricultural operations to have an oil spill prevention plan in place. The USDA set up a pilot initiative for eight states, including Idaho, to help producers comply with the EPA’s SPCC regulations. “An important part of the USDA mission is helping farmers and ranchers develop plans to protect human health and the environment, including assistance to comply with new regulations,” said Jeff Burwell, Idaho NRCS State Conservationist. “This initiative will help agricultural producers meet regulatory requirements designed to reduce the dangers of on-farm oil spills.” For farms with aboveground storage capacity of more than 10,000 gallons of oil or oil products, the EPA requires that the SPCC plans be developed by a professional engineer. The NRCS initiative

If you are going to start a business, especially in this economy, make sure it is something you love. Not only does this make work more enjoyable, it comes across to your customers and gets them excited about your product. This is certainly true about a new business in Shoshone Inkorporated Tattoo. Located on the north side of the railroad tracks in Shoshone, just a block west of Highway 75, Inkorporated Tattoo is a partnership between Josh Hettenbach and Chris Silvia. Josh Hettenbach, a graduate of Richfield High School, has seven years of tattooing experience. While learning the trade, he also worked on several residential construction projects in our area. Chris Silvia is a graduate of the Seattle Art Institute and has been doing tattoos for 18 years. He has also applied his art training to CNC machining by working for Sun Valley Bronze, and recently for himself by producing unique personal items out of brass. While tattoos are not to everyone’s liking, they are becoming more and more popular. What used to be the mark of military or disreputable men, and a sure-fire way of not getting a job, is now a chic and upscale status symbol worn by men and women alike. Tattoos can be small simple designs, easily hidden by clothing, or large elaborate full color images that rival works of art in a museum. A small tattoo might take less than an hour to complete and only cost thirty or forty dollars. A large tattoo might take several months to complete and cost thousands of dollars. A common misconception about tattooing is that ink is used. While the material used is called ink, tattoo designs are actually made with safe, nontoxic pigments. Older pigments often fade over time, but the newer pigments are capable of lasting for your entire life with full color brightness. As was said before, tattoos are not for everyone and if you plan to get one, make sure it is something you can live with for the rest of your life (they can be removed, but you won’t like it - the pain or the money involved). The owners of Inkorporated Tattoo can provide commonly used designs or oneof-a-kind masterworks. Be sure to stop by their shop to buy a ticket for their Tattoo Lottery.

Hope & Help for Domestic Violence While most of us like to think we would never harm someone we love, the pressures of life can sometimes turn a simple disagreement into a dangerous altercation. It is easy to tell someone in this kind of situation to “just get out,” but for those involved in abusive relationships, it is seldom that easy. Compounding all of this is well meaning friends and family who enable or ignore domestic violence, even when the problem is clearly visible. Whether you are perpetrator, a victim, or a concerned bystander, there is something you can do... attend the Seminar of Hope & Help to be held in April at Helping Hearts & Hands. The seminar will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, April 21st, at 237 Main Street (across from Gem Vet). There is a fee of $10, but scholarships are available.

from the Editor

While traveling along my newspaper delivery route last week, I noticed a bicyclist having troubles along Highway 93/26 between Shoshone and Richfield. My good neighbor tendencies kicked in and I stopped to help the middle-aged women get a few more miles down the road to Richfield. She was very grateful. As we traveled she told me about an accident she suffered about three years ago. She was bicycling along Highway 93, north of Mackey, when a passing motorist (a dually truck with a boat trailer) struck her. Needless to say, her injuries were very severe. The truck did not stop and other motorists had to run the driver down to bring him back to the scene of the accident. There were, of course, denials all around as to the event and even the extent of the woman’s injuries (she ended up spending 18 days in the hospital). It is a miracle that she was on her bike, let alone riding along the highway towards her destination as I drove by. Now that spring is here and as we head into summer, her story is a good reminder for motorists to watch out for people traveling along our roadways – either by foot or bike. SLOW DOWN when you pass by these individuals, and if you are traveling in the same direction, PULL OVER to the other side. First of all, this is a safety issue. Secondly, it is just common courtesy. If it helps, just think about how you would feel if a 18wheeler went roaring past you at 70 miles-per-hour, and you only had 4 or 5 feet of room to stay out of the way. Along these same lines, if you see a police officer on the side of the road (giving a reminder to a motorist regarding Idaho law), SLOW DOWN... PULL OVER! Our law enforcement officers have enough to worry about without you blowing their hat off... or worse. 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456 12345678901234567890123456789012123456789012345678901234567890121234567890123456

The End of the World On Tuesday, April 10, as part of CSI’s mid-winter lecture series, CSI Anthropology professor, Jim Woods, will present “Coming December 2012: The End of the World.” Woods will present and clarify the commonly-held belief that the world will end on December 21, 2012, an important date on the Mayan calendar, but not to predict the end of time. Woods will present what is behind the rumor and what the modern Maya and archaeologists have to say about it. Woods is a Professor of Anthropology at CSI. His studies of the ancient Maya started while in high school, when he worked for Norman Herrett and had access to the famed Herrett Collection of Mesoamerican Artifacts. Woods earned his MA from Idaho State University in Anthropology in 1987. His first fieldwork in the Maya area was in 1992 where he studied ancient Maya stone working and architecture. Woods was the Director of the Herrett Center from 1980 until 2009. He is on the Idaho Humanities Council Speakers Bureau, and was awarded the Outstanding Achievement in the Humanities in 1998 by the IHC and a Professional Achievement Award, College of Arts & Sciences, Idaho State University in 2006.

Cup of Tee

Some days you are a diamond, some days you are a coal dust. Years ago I worked in Tennessee at a K-Mart store. One day the store’s assistant manager asked me what I was doing. Basically I was standing around. I told him I was caught up on my job responsibilities. He told me that if I was done with everything in that store, they probably wouldn’t need me. (Look at helping other departments!) Point was well taken, from that moment forward never found me with an idle moment. The Pet Department and the Patio Department were next to Building Materials. I worked those two departments pretty regularly. One day a gentleman came in and asked me for the fattest gerbil we had in stock. He just happened to be in luck. Our store had thirteen of them, due to a couple of live births in the Pet Department. We were told to promote them because sales on them were slow and they were pure profit. The Pet Department gal was gone to lunch so I was the “huckleberry”. I sold him the fattest gerbil we had. Two days later the same guy was in for another fat gerbil. The timing was about the same and I sold him another one. He was happy and so was I. Needless to say he was in again, about the same time two days later for another gerbil. Then I asked him “Do you have more than one kid at home?” His reply was “no”. Then I asked him, “Did you have one die on you?” “No,” he said. I have a python snake and he needs one every couple of days. Me, not caring for any of the rodent family said; “Great I’ll sell you all you want.” The guy was happy because other stores would not sell the gerbils to him. I believe I sold around seven of them to the same customer. Each one was almost the same every day and timing was perfect, the sales gal was out to lunch. At our employee store meeting early in the morning, the general manager and the assistant manager were talking about plusrelated sales. At that moment they congratulated me for an outstanding job I was doing in Pets (mostly in reference to the gerbil sales), namely it wasn’t my department. Then the assistant manager asked me to stand and tell my secret about selling the gerbils to the other employees. He also stated, “Everyone needs to be more like Tee.” A round of applause was given. I stood and told them I had sold a few of the gerbils for some kids and seven were sold to a repeat customer for his python. I don’t think anyone was expecting that type of sales answer. You would have thought I went from someone special to the worst employee in the store, in 90 seconds. Everyone was mad at me for selling to the guy with the snake. I assured them his money was as good as any ones. I felt a little uneasy about sitting back down. Do you think I had anyone to sit with at lunch? You guessed the answer, no one wanted to sit with “Traitor Tee”. For a couple of days I ate my lunch by myself. This is my “Cup of Tee” saying some days you’re the table and some days you’re the toilet.
