Camas Library Offers eBooks The Camas County Public Library has something wonderful and new for its patrons. The library recently joined a consortium with other libraries in the area that allows for lending eBooks. The really great thing about this is that a person can download an eBook to their reading device at their home or any place that has Wi-Fi. This consortium is called Overdrive and a free App can be downloaded to whatever device you use for reading. There is a very large selec-

tion of books to choose from and two books at a time can be checked out for a period of two weeks. You will need to know your patron number as this will become your code for logging in. Please come in to the library and talk with Marilyn and get more information including printed directions as to how to get started with your particular reading device (kindles, nooks, iPads, etc.) There is no charge to patrons using this eBook lending library as the Camas County

Camas County. Commissioner Janet Croner is being challenged by former commissioner Ron Chapman. Mrs. Croner defeated Mr. Chapman in the 2010 Primary Election with 223 votes to 179 votes. This year there will only be about 275 voters eligible to vote in that race, meaning a candidate will only need approximately 140 votes to win (if 100% of registered Republicans cast a ballot) which is only 20% of the total registered voters in that county. The same is true for Commissioner Barbara McMurdo who is being challenged by former commissioner Bill Davis who lost his seat to Mrs. McMurdo in 2012 (155 to 84). In Lincoln County there are no contested commissioner

Closed Primary Affects Local Elections In District 26 registered Republicans out number registered Democrats by almost 4 to 1. Even in Blaine County there are more Republicans than Democrats. Of course, both parties are vastly out numbered by the unaffiliated voters which make up just over 2/3 of the registered voters (slightly higher than the state percentage). This looks like a huge advantage for Republicans, however, because the Republican party has a closed Primary, 50% to 60% of voters will not be able to participate in some local election races. A number of our county races are decided in the Primary Election on the Republican ticket, and unaffiliated voters have no voice in those races. A good example of this is in

seats, but there are races for County Clerk and County Treasurer that will be decided in the Primary. The current Clerk, Suzanne McConnell, is being challenged by Brenda Farnworth, and the current Treasurer, Ann Youts, is being challenged by Mary Davidson. All four of these individuals are running as Republicans and will have to divide up the 812 registered voters for that party. In Gooding County, Mark Bolduc is running against Tom Faulkner for District 2 Commissioner on the Republican Ticket. Unlike the afore mentioned races, there is also a Democrat Candidate running for this position. The winner of the Republican Primary will face David Maestas this fall in the General Election.

On April 7th, 2014, Gooding Family Physicians (GFP) integrated with North Canyon Medical Center (NCMC). GFP, a local family physician office in Gooding, has been independently operated since 2004 by Dr. Reid Lofgran and Ian Kunz, PA-C. “Over the past few years it has become increasingly difficult to manage all the changes in health care and still maintain the quality time we want to dedicate to our patients. Over the past several years we have carefully considered how we can best serve our patients and our community. During that time we have worked closely with North Canyon Medical Center to discuss our practice integrating with the hospital. Today the agreement has been finalized and we are so excited to share the news with our patients and community,” stated Reid Lofgran, DO. “Initiating and finalizing this agreement, with the hospital, will allow us more time to focus on patient care while the hospital manages the business operations,” he stated. As part of the agreement, the providers and staff at Gooding Family Physicians will be employed by North Canyon Medical Center. Pa-

“VAN GOGH COW” HAS ARRIVED! – Longhorn steers are everywhere in Gooding now. Downtown Gooding has been taken over by over 40 Long Horn Steers and there are more on the way. In anticipation of the “Best Design Award”, new contender and retired art teacher and artist Crystal Cook painted her “Van Gogh Cow” with amazing fluorescent paint. “Cow” do you know? Just drive by Cooks Foodtown at night. Not to be outdone, Julie’s steer at Ace Hardware on 5th Ave E. wound up high in the sky and Jason at Edward Jones’ steer is turning gold! It’s no bull - we understand there may be a sex change in mind for some! Other Long Horn Steer sightings are at Magic Valley Bank, Kathleen Goicochea’s new location on the corner of Main & 3rd St., Body Balance and the Fire Department (maybe it will turn roaring red). One steer must have developed a toothache! It was standing at Dr. McLaughlin’s Clover Creek Dental on 5th Ave early Monday morning. For more information on how you can corral and decorate a Long Horn Steer, Contact Charmy LeaVell, Secretary/Treasurer of the Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame – (208) 539-0202. REAL THEFT ALERT! The Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the people involved in the theft of a blue hand painted and professionally decorated wooden Long Horn Steer that had Franklin Building Supply logo on the left hip and vandalized another. Any information regarding this theft – CONTACT YOUR LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IMMEDIATELY! This is very upsetting with approximately 50 businesses participating in a downtown project. Please stay alert and keep your ears and eyes open post to your Facebook pages. Lonnie LeaVell, President Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame

Clyde Clifford Clyde Clifford, 75, a resident of Hagerman, passed away in Hagerman on April 18, 2014. Clyde was born on November 9, 1938 at the Twin Falls hospital to Nora C. And Howard “Hap” Clifford. Clyde was the youngest of 3 children. His older siblings are Len Clifford and Anna Wheeler. He grew up in Hagerman where he was active in F.F.A., basketball, baseball, football and he was involved with student council being the student body president his senior year. Clyde graduated from Hagerman High School in 1957. After graduation he helped his parents on the farm until 1963. What changed? Well, let me tell you! He met the ONE, Jessie Nipper, in 1962. Clyde gave up his bachelor status and made Jessie his bride on July 13, 1963 in Buhl. They just celebrated their 50th anniversary. Clyde went to work for the Hagerman Highway District in 1963. Clyde and Jessie made their life in Hagerman with their sons Brian and Greg. Clyde was active with the boy’s activities including EVERY sport available! Clyde loved sports and shared this love with his sons. Clyde and Jessie made a point to attend as many of the boys events as possible. Clyde was a volunteer for the Hagerman Fire Depart-

ment for over 30 years. After 40 years of being a one man team for the Hagerman Highway District, Clyde decided it was time to stop with the road work and hang up the keys to the snow plow. It was time to start a work free life (OK, it was not work free - but you know what I mean) and begin his retirement in 2003. Clyde and Jessie shared numerous adventures like camping, hunting, fishing, flower shows, wild horse viewing, school and community functions. They also enjoyed traveling to include Washington, DC; New York, New York; Calgary, Canada; Fort Meyer, Florida; and several locations within Idaho and along the Pacific coast. However, their favorite adventures by far were any events for their grandchildren, Ashley and Clint. They found grandpa’s soft spot that he didn’t show many. They brought him much love and joy. Clyde was a wonderful husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, uncle, cousin and friend. It is an understatement to say, he will be missed. Clyde was preceded in death by: his parents, Howard and Nora Clifford. Clyde is survived by his wife Jessie Clifford of Hagerman; sons, Brian Clifford of Hagerman and Greg (Lalonie) Clifford of Boise; granddaughter, Ashley (Joey Vanderwyst) Clifford of Twin Falls; grandson, Clint Clifford of Hagerman; grandpuppy, Lola Clifford of Boise; brother, Len (Connie) Clifford of Pocatello; sister, Anna (Ed) Wheeler of Buhl; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. There will be a viewing on April 27th from 4 to 7 p.m. at Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel in Gooding. Clyde’s service will be held on April 28, 2014 at 10 a.m. at the Hagerman High School gymnasium. Burial will follow in the Hagerman Cemetery in Hagerman. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donation be made to the Hagerman Alumni Association, PO Box 495, Hagerman 83332.

Letter to the Editor Dear Lincoln County Voters:

A large part of the responsibility of a county treasurer is to safeguard, collect and bill you for county money. It is a responsibility that I take seriously. Checks and balances to protect your resources require a degree of autonomy that is separate but equal from the Clerk’s office. I have heard candidates promoting the idea of “Team.” A team requires a coach and it implies a single interest. While cooperation is important between the offices of the elected officials, as trustees of public office we should assure independence and impartiality, resolve (and recognize) conflicts of interest and avoid undue influence that can result from too tight of a connection between persons running for or holding office in the County. To paraphrase Brian Kane from the Office of the Attorney General: it is hard to say NO to your friends and family. We should consider diversity an asset. I would hope that multiple views, positions and agendas are and continue to be considered at the county level. I have an MBA, 6 years of experience in a large accounting firm, 2 years’ service as the Lincoln County Treasurer, and more than a decade of close interaction with members of Lincoln County. The Experience, Education and Skills that I bring to this position have helped to continue the efficiency of our previous Treasurer. As the incumbent, I ask for your support in the coming election. Vote Ann Youts for Treasurer.

Lately, I have been visiting friends at the hospital in Boise, Idaho, on a regular basis. Instead of being healthy in a health facility by using the 5 to 10 flights of stairs, I used the elevator. I have been UP and DOWN the elevator so many times I figured out the buttons by using the Braille system (touch alone). People riding the elevator know my first and last name. They automatically call out my name as soon as they get on - UP or DOWN. To top things off I have started singing to myself on the ride between floor destinations. Wait a second... I don’t like my own singing! Why would I sing to myself in the elevator? It’s not like singing in the shower or along with your favorite radio station. There is that thing call elevator music that keeps guys like me from singing in small confined areas that allows the pitch to go UP and DOWN. Elevator music is that background music that you hear in grocery stores, libraries, dentist offices, schools, planes, shopping malls, cruise ships, hotels, department stores, and of course, elevators. George Owen Squire, an aviation trailblazer/inventor, invented the wired wireless system that allowed radio signals to travel on a single wire. He was in ground works with the Wright Brothers when they were making their airplane flight in 1908 (he probably helped them with their communication to clear for take off). People didn’t accept his idea of a paid wire idea because they could listen to the radio for free. In 1934 he changed the name of his company to Muzak. Businesses began to buy into his idea of piped-in music. The department stores were early up because they felt it relaxed the customers so they would browse more which lead to more spending. But, before George Squire got music into elevators, let us understand elevators. Elevators or elevation systems were used back in the Roman times to raise and lower water. In 1743 King Louis XV had in use an elevator to raise and lower him between floors operated by pulleys and ropes. In the mid 1800’s elevators were used for freight and mines. These were powered by water and steam pistons. The area below the first floor had to be as high as the floors to meet lift requirements. Later these elevators were hoisted UP and DOWN with cables and gears. 1853 saw the first patent on the elevator issued to Elisha Otis who created a breaking system to keep elevators from falling. Many elevators were on the outside of buildings. To lessen the fear of heights of people and the noisy frightening sounds of grinding gears or pistons moving UP and DOWN, music (muzak system) was piped into the elevators. Even the electric elevator invented in 1880 by German inventor Werner von Siemens didn’t cure the scary sounds. Rocker Ted Nuggent, in the 1980’s, offered to buy the Muzak Company for $10 million to get rid of that dreaded elevator music. Apparently he didn’t know his music as well as he thought because there is still elevator music (although it is not as common as it used to be). You may still have a choice whether you get elevator music or me singing to you on your next elevator ride. This is the UPs and DOWNs for this “Cup of Tee”
