New Life At the Lincoln Inn Farm Service Agency Youth Loans Farm Service Agency (FSA) makes loans to individual rural youth ages 10 through 20 to establish and operate income-producing projects of modest size, in connection with participation in 4-H Clubs, FFA and similar organizations. Each project must be part of an organized and supervised program of work. The project must be planned and operated with the help of the organization advisor, produce sufficient income to repay the loan and provide youth with practical business and educational experiences. These loans may be used to finance nearly any kind of income-producing project. Some common projects include livestock and crop production, lawn and garden services, repair shops and roadside stands. The maximum amount for FSA youth loans is $5000.00. Loans may be used to buy livestock, equipment and supplies; buy, rent or repair needed tools and equipment; and pay operating expenses for running the project. To see if you qualify for a loan, go to the FSA website at www.fsa.usda.gov or call their office at 324-4325.

The Lincoln Inn has been a fixture in the Gooding community for longer than most of us have been alive. Over the last several years, however, it has fallen are hard times. Next week, a new owner will bring new life to the old restaurant. Evaristo Mireles has lived in Gooding for over twenty years, and he knows that running the Lincoln Inn will be a challenge. Mr. Mireles is no stranger to hard work, or to running a business. Besides running his own farm north of Gooding and doing custom work for his neighbors, he is the owner of Lupita’s Boutique (straight across main street from the Lincoln Inn). His main goal at is to make sure the service and food at the Lincoln Inn are the best they can be. If he can make your first visit an enjoyable one, then you will tell your friends and family to visit too. For those of you who are wondering... the name will remain the same - The Lincoln Inn - and the food will be American.

“The Obituary Writer” written by Ann Hood
There is something missing in this book. It’s a story about a San Francisco woman in 1909 who lives through the earthquake but loses track her lover, then becomes an obituary writer because she has a gift for grief. It’s also the story of a 1961 married mother who loses her unattractive lover but keeps her very attractive but controlling husband. The author gives 1961 an authentic enough twang with all that hero worship of the Kennedy clan, the Jackie mania and Wonder bread. But I could not buy what the author was selling in 1909. Let’s put it this way, if you ask any New Yorker about 9/11 you are not go-

ing to get a short answer, you are going to get painful and awful details. But the author gives a short answer to the most devastating earthquake and subsequent fire that nearly leveled one of the largest cities in America. It’s like yeah, there was some shaking and a few things fell down, now where’s my boyfriend? The author ties the two stories together in the end, but without a fully developed backdrop, two women whimpering for dead boyfriends is just - romance. Yuck!

Rosie V. Arrossa Rosie V. Arrossa, 86, a resident of Gooding, passed away April 1, 2013, at Willowbrook Assisted Living in Twin Falls, Idaho. Rosie was born to Juan and Atanasia Aspiasu on February 7, 1927, at Jerome, Idaho. She was the fourth of six children in her family. Rosie attended Pleasant Plains Elementary School north of Jerome until the death of her father when she had to quit school after the eighth grade. Rosie married Pete Arrossa of Ispoure, France, on April 8, 1944 in Jerome, Idaho. The marriage was later confirmed at St. Peter’s Catholic Church in Shoshone, Idaho. Pete was employed by Bill Smith, Ben Darrah, and later Joe Lete and Andy Guerricabetia in the sheep and ranching business. They eventually leased the ranch in Shoshone and later purchased a ranch and dairy in Wendell, Idaho, where they lived until Pete’s death in 1977. Shortly after Pete’s death, Rosie bought a home in Gooding, Idaho, and continued working. She was employed at Jerome Co-op Creamery and then was employed at Clear Springs Trout Company at Buhl. After retiring from Clear Springs, Rosie was employed at Gooding Elementary for fourteen years as a playground aide where she made many friends both with co-workers and students. After retiring again she continued to volunteer at Gooding Elementary. Rosie and Pete raised their three children in Shoshone on a dairy cattle and sheep farm. Their first priority was always their family and they worked hard providing for them. They enjoyed their activities, sporting events and in later years, Rosie supported her grandchildren’s and great-grandchildren’s activities, never missing an event if at all possible.
Rosie enjoyed her house, gardening, cooking (nobody ever went away hungry) and most of all her family. Rosie was proud of her Basque heritage, enjoying the Basque dances, picnics, and card games. Rosie was a member of St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church in Gooding, Idaho. Rosie is survived by her three children: Pete Arrossa, of Jerome Idaho; Gina (Doug) Pendleton, of Pocatello, Idaho; and George (Molly) Arrossa, of Kimberly, Idaho; one sister Josephine Olander, of Heyburn, Idaho; six grandchildren, John Pendleton, Lisa Miller, Tracy Pettinger, Rich Arrossa Monty Arrossa, and Jamie Shetler. She is also survived by eleven great-grandchildren. Rosie was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Pete, and siblings John Aspiasu, Mary Lazaro, Antonia Llona, and Delores Alberdi. The family would like to extend special thanks to the staff at Willowbrook Assisted Living, Hospice Visions for care provided, and Nancy Darling for communion. Recitation of the Rosary will be held at 7:00 pm, on Thursday, April 4, 2013 at Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel, with visitation beginning at 6:00 pm. A funeral service will be held at 11:00 am, on Friday, April 5, 2013 at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church in Gooding. Burial will follow at 2:30 pm, at the Shoshone Cemetery in Shoshone. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Gooding Basque Association, P.O. Box 517 Gooding, Idaho 83330; or a charity of your choice. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting the obituary link at www.demarayfuneralservice.com.

Mary Imogene Jauregui Our mother, Mary Imogene Jauregui, passed away quietly on the morning of March 30, 2013, at The Cottages in Boise, Idaho, at the age of 92. The last surviving member of the original Chatfield clan which homesteaded in Richfield, Idaho, beginning in 1910, Imogene will come to rest at the Meridian Cemetery with her husband, Luis Jauregui. They will live forever in our hearts, minds and souls. We will miss them both dearly. After our father died eight years ago, Joy Reeb, the keeper of the Chatfield history and genealogic flame, asked our mother to write a short story of her life for the family archives. We are pleased to share an excerpt from that story below, in our mother’s own words: “Mary Imogene first saw the light of day on June 18, 1920, in the ranch house of Mary (Maidie) Patrick Chatfield and Christopher Otho Chatfield at Richfield. Idaho. Grandmother, Mary Mariah Chatfield, Otho’s mother, was a midwife and helped with the birth. The baby girl weighed 9 pounds and was healthy even though she had a wobbly head, which she soon outgrew. She joined four siblings, Walter Alexander, Edna Arlie, Crandall Fayette and Allison Beth and two years later by Leslie Odell. Imogene started to school at age 6 (1926) and made many friends who remain friends today. In 1926 her mother took the 4 youngest children to Florence, Colorado, to visit Grandma and Grandpa Patrick, Mom’s parents. ‘We all rode on a train and played on the banks of the Arkansas River.’ During High School Imogene met a Basque boy from Dietrich. Arlie taught school at Dietrich. She said those Basque boys were the nicest boys in school. After graduation Imogene married the oldest one, Luis Jauregui on July 3, 1938. She was never sorry. They had 4 children, Mary 1940, Paul 1941, John 1950 and Jim 1956. Who could ask for more?” What set our mother apart was her life-long love of family and children, for whom she fashioned magnificently colored quilts. But she also was dedicated to her work at the Nampa-Meridian Irrigation Company, the local Catholic Church and a variety of community activities in Meridian, Idaho, where she lived for sixty years. We, Imogene’s children, live on with our families: Mary in Kimberly, Paul (Vickie) in Boise, John (Christy) in Garden Valley, Jim (Tammie) in Eagle. Imogene leaves to this world a legacy of 11 grandchildren, and 16 great grandchildren. May they all be as happy and prosperous as their (great) grandmother. Our special thanks go out to the staff of The Cottages in Boise
and Treasure Valley Hospice for their very kind service and dedication to our mother’s needs in her last days. Our hearts and thanks go out to Mom’s long time caregiver and good friend, Laura. We would also like to acknowledge all of our mother’s extended Chatfield clan and friends who have made her life so wonderfully rich in God’s pocket here in southern Idaho. Mom had a good life. You all made it sparkle. Thank you. Funeral Mass will be held Friday, April 5th at 10:30 AM at the Holy Apostles Catholic Church, 6300 N. Meridian Rd. in Meridian followed by interment at the Meridian Cemetery. A viewing will held one hour before the service. Services under the care of Accent Funeral Home in Meridian. In lieu of sending flowers, please make a “Tribute Gift” in Mary Imogene Jauregui’s name by contacting the ST. LUKE’S CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL SCHOOL by calling (208)381-2209 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Remembrances may be left for the family online at www.AccentFuneral.com

...but never Compromising the Truth.
Cup of Tee
The right hand man; the person to go to, the person to trust, the person who you can count on to back your decisions… but what about the left handed person? No one ever says “Hey, that’s my left hand.” If they do they are usually talking about their left hand literally. In most cases it is said in context to the fact, “Hey this is my left hand and it doesn’t seem to understand the coordination of the present task at hand.” There are about 30 million people in the United States that are left handed. One would think the numbers would be closer to 50/50. The gap would be a lot closer if past generations could have accepted left handed people. From the beginning of time, the lefties have been persuaded to change over to be right handed. A school teacher would slap a ruler across the fingers if a student wasn’t conforming to the right handed ways. That goes back to their basic rule, you will do as I do and as I say. Today, though, more left handed people are accepted because of the understanding of one as an individual. “Southpaws” or left handers usually develop being left handed by six months of age. Sometimes a left hander is created by the mirror effect of watching and learning. More so than not, left handed is hereditary. Mothers who are over forty years of age giving birth to a child have 128% chance of a left handed child compared to a lady in her 20’s. A left handed child is also most likely to have a left handed parent. College educated left handers earn about 10-15% more than their right handed colleagues. That is work from the get go because even the simple things such as tablets, scissors and pencil sharpeners are right handed. It is a wonder lefties were able to get a fair grade during school because of being left handed – they smudged their writing. (sliding hand over fresh written lead or ink.) The world of tools is right handed. (They even come from the factory being tooled that way). Potatoe peelers, can openers, and saws are right machined. Most every left handers that has used tin snips have usually clipped their hand or can’t make them work. (reason for color coated snips). Lefties have an inability to keep materials steady during use because of weight distribution of right operated tools. The risk factor for accidents is 1.7% higher than righties, with males outnumbering females 2 to 1. A large percentage of accidents are door related (wrong handed). As a normal rule, left handers have shorter life spans namely because safety equipment is right handed such as emergency shut off switches. As left handed people get older, they are fortunate to be less affected by strokes since they have had to use both sides of their brain. A left hander will sleep mostly on their left side and a right hander on their right. With that thought, I will turn in…This is my “Cup of left over Tee” right to the bottom.

Ruins of a World: Chinese Gold Mining in the Snake River Canyon Tuesday, April 9th at CSI Northside Center in Gooding
For All your Insurance needs ...

Office: (208) 934-8037
Idaho was no stranger to one gold rush after another in the 19th Century. All it took was the mere rumor of gold veins or nuggets to bring the crash and clamor of the miners. Boom towns sprang up overnight and, often as not, disappeared just as quickly when the gold played out or when rumors arrived of greater riches elsewhere. A lesser known quest took place along the Snake River in the 1870’s after our own gold rush. That’s the one historian Ron James will discuss in “Ruins of a World: Chinese Gold Mining in the Snake River Canyon” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9 at the College of Southern Idaho’s North Side Center in Gooding. James has done extensive archaeological and ethnographic research on the Chinese and Japanese contributions to southern Idaho history. His thesis of the same name was published in 1993. Other publications include “Secrets of the Magic Valley and Hagerman’s Remarkable Horse” (2002) in which James contributed chapters on the Native American, the Astorians and mining. 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 received his M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Idaho in 1993. He is also a member of the Twin Falls County Historic Preservation Commission. This is the last in a series of lectures at the North Side Center this spring. It is sponsored by Zions Bank. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The lecture is free of charge and open to everyone.

Project Graduation It is almost that time of year again, the Class of 2013 is graduating. May 25, 2013, at 3:30 P.M. After graduation the graduates will join their families and friends for a few hours, and then they will embark on a mission to Nazz Kart in Twin Falls with their fellow classmates from High School. This venture they are taking is called “Project Graduation”. This is a program designed for the graduates and the rest of their High School classmates to have a save, drug/alcohol free, chaperoned celebration. It is a great program that has had much support from the community and beyond for many years. We, the parents of the Graduates of 2013, and the Graduates of 2013, are asking for your support this year, in making this a successful and fun filled celebration for these students. Donations can be mailed to “Project Graduation” P.O. Box 502, Fairfield, ID 83327, or dropped at the US Bank in Fairfield. We are very grateful for all donations.
