Camas Library Foundation The Camas County Public Library across from the high school is a great asset to the residents of Camas County, but it did not come without a great deal of work over many years. The new location was first discussed by the Library Board in the late 1990’s, but finances kept the idea from moving forward. Then in 2007 a group of library supporters formed the Library Foundation to help attract matterial and financial gifts to enhance the services of the library. With the support of the dedicated members of the Foundation, a new building was obtained, a remodel was done, and the furnishing were provided to make the Camas County Public Library a great place to read, surf the web, and have a small meeting. The work of the Foundation, however, is not done. There are continuing projects and improvements that need to be done. You can donate funds to the Foundation, or you can join this organization for only $50 per year. You can also become a lifetime member for $1000. To find out more, stop by the library and talk to the librarians, or goto http:// camas.lili.org and remember the Camas Library is open late on Monday nights.

LEGOs Help Kids Learn Thanks to a $500 grant from Gooding Rotary Club, the Gooding Library will be holding a Lego building contest starting next week. If your child hasn’t signed up, be sure to do it today because the contest is limited to just fifteen kids. Assistant Librarian, Cindy Bigler, started this project because of the overwhelming evidence that kids who play with tactile/building toys have a big Librarians thank our local Rotary Members advantage over kids who for supporting the Gooding Library don’t in the area of math Kelly McCool, Cindy Bigler, Leo Sanchez, Jim Schoettger and science. (back row), Duke Morton, & Pat Hamilton (front). So, a few months ago, Mrs. Bigler contacted Larry Robertson at the Gooding Rotary Club and together they put together a grant proposal to help the library purchase additional Lego sets. Aside from providing money, Rotary Club members will also be actively involved in helping kids with their Lego projects. Duke Morton (Gooding Mayor and Rotary member) said he was proud that local business leaders are willing and able help the library help kids. “The library is a hidden treasure, but also one of Gooding’s most important assets.” Rotary Club President, Leo Sanchez, said that being involved in these kinds of projects is his favorite part of being a Rotary member. “Whether it is the boxing smoker or the school carnival, or helping the library, it’s all about the kids.”

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.

...but never Compromising the Truth.

Pet CarebyCDror. Janer ck Amen Canine Parvovirus Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious and serious disease caused by a virus that attacks the gastrointestinal tract of puppies, dogs, and wild canids. Parvovirus is spread by direct dog to dog contact and contact with contaminated feces, environments or people. The virus can also contaminate kennel surfaces, food and water bowls, collars and leashes, as well as people’s hands and clothing. The virus is resistant to heat, cold, humidity, and drying, and can survive in the environment for long periods of time. Parvovirus is easily transmitted from place to place on the hair or feet of dogs or via contaminated cages, shoes, or other objects. This means you can carry the virus to your home and dog on your own shoes. All dogs are at risk, but puppies less than four months of age and dogs that have not been vaccinated are at increased risk. The clinical signs of parvovirus include lethargy, loss of appetite, fever, vomiting and diarrhea (often bloody diarrhea). Vomiting and diarrhea can cause rapid dehydration and most deaths occur within two to three days following onset of the clinical signs. If your puppy or dog demonstrates any of these signs, you should contact your veterinarian immediately. Parvovirus infection is often suspected based on the dog’s history, clinical signs and laboratory tests. No specific drug is available that will kill the virus in infected dogs and treatment is intended to support the dog until the immune system can fight off the infection. Treatment should be started immediately and consists of efforts to combat dehydration by replacing electrolyte and fluid losses, controlling vomiting and diarrhea, and preventing secondary bacterial infections. When a dog develops “parvo” the treatment can be very expensive and the dog may die despite aggressive treatment. Early recognition and treatment are very important for successful outcomes. Vaccination is extremely important in preventing parvovirus infections in dogs. Puppies should receive their first vaccination against parvovirus at six weeks of age. Three more boosters should follow at eight weeks, 12 weeks and 16 weeks of age. Adult dogs should have their parvovirus vaccinations up-to-date. Depending on life style and risk of exposure this may include once a year boosters. Until a puppy has received its complete series of vaccinations the puppy should not be brought to places where dogs congregate. This includes parks, puppy classes, obedience classes, daycare, kennels and grooming facilities. Do not let your puppy or adult dog come into contact with fecal waste from other dogs. Prompt and proper disposal of waste material is a way to limit the spread of parvovirus infection as well as other diseases that can infect humans and animals.

Cup of Tee

On Easter, I was helping my friend Jim Super with some harrowing to his hay ground. Jim had just gotten out of having surgery on his elbow. During the time I was harrowing his field, I found a hand full of golf balls. The funny thing is, no one around there has been putting golf balls. Where did they come from? Who knows? The answer has not been revealed. As far as I know crows dropped them thinking they were eggs of some kind. At any rate Jim had managed to get out to the field to tell me dinner was about ready and to check on my progress. He spied the golf balls sitting in his tractor loader bucket. He says “So, you collecting golf balls?” I told him, “No, I am not collecting golf balls. Today is Easter and I’m Easter egg hunting. I found all of those Easter eggs hidden in your pasture.” For the norm, Easter eggs are usually collected by kids. I guess I still qualify as a kid because I’m my mother’s kid. A small problem occurred with these hard Easter eggs (golf balls). If I was to shell these eggs they might not expose a good taste or even the right insides to make “tater” salad. They weren’t even colored to make finding them a challenge. The white showed up pretty easily in a green field. Maybe the golfer who lost them should have used some colored “Easter Eggs” to make my “hunt & find” game a little demanding. Coloring Easter eggs goes a long ways back in time. Each and every family of recent generations has done the colored Easter egg process. It was another family time similar to Monopoly. To color eggs they first had to be boiled. Then dyed water and vinegar was placed in bowls. Each child was able to dip the eggs into the bowls creating different color schemes. Two necessary tools were, teaspoons (or soup spoons) and lots of paper towels! To get a more creative look, rubber bands were used on the egg before dying. The wax pencil or pieces of wax from canning worked better than the rubber bands. You could actually create more designs. The business world soon found out that not all of us were artists. So with each package of dye they included some stick-on stickers. Some stickers were even sold separately. Now the sticker gave a whole new meaning to decorated eggs. To me the stickers seemed to be too commercial or they were of stuff I had no desire to use. Maybe I was nearing the end of my time of decorating eggs, because my new decorating tool became the colored magic marker and colored sharpie pens. There was no waiting for the eggs once boiled to cool, no dipping in dye, and plain ol’ white eggs were good with multiple colored ink. (Markers probably got me into trouble later on.) Now there is a process of decorating eggs with the use of printed silk ties. I may be on to some new art, a process to use some old ties. Maybe I’d take up coloring Easter eggs again. Maybe not! This is my “Cup of Tee” with no dye.
