Work to Resume on Big Wood River Bridge

Work is expected to resume today (May 16) on the Highway 20 Big Wood River Bridge near Stanton Crossing. This is the final part of last year’s bridge replacement project. The new bridge deck will be sealed against weather and water damage to help ensure the longevity of the structure. Paving will also occur on the new bridge to tie into adjoining portions of US20. Work is expected to be completed within the next month. While construction is underway, this portion of US-20 will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Drivers should be prepared for reduced speeds and short delays, and watch for flaggers during working hours - Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Concrete Placing Company, of Boise, Idaho is the contractor for this project. ITD and the Idaho State Police advise motorists to slow down and pay attention when driving in work zones, where increased speeding fines and other penalties apply. Motorists are encouraged to plan ahead and dial 5-1-1 or visit 511.idaho. gov for information on the state highway or interstate system.

Ice Cream Social in Gooding

1-888-934-1862 • Wednesday, May 9, 2018 • The Courier NEWS

The Gooding Youth Association (G.Y.A.) will host a ice cream social this Friday, May 18th, at the Gooding High School. The G.Y.A. decided that, instead of having a standard fundraiser, they would have an event that would benefit the entire town. Fund raiser admission is by donation. Jim Brockman will give a brief presentation about the G.Y.A. before turning the microphone over to Donna Shines of the Mentoring Network. Donna Shines will speak about working together to make Gooding greater. She delivers a great down to earth message in a way that everybody can connect with. After the presentations, the G.Y.A. will be serving Clover Leaf ice cream afterwards. Everyone is invited to enjoy some ice cream and to share their ideas about Gooding with each other. To sweeten the pot, they will be giving away two Ruger firearms as door prizes. These will be drawn for during the ice cream social and you must be present to win. ---- What is the G.Y.A . It’s is a group dedicated to offering the youth of the area the chance to learn about and participate in the tradition of shooting sports. Centered around education and safety, the group offers shotgun, rifle, and archery classes to youth from 9 to 18. They are also working on a drone building group as well. The group is open to all, and works in collaboration with Gooding schools, 4-H, as well as a number other groups in Gooding.

Firewood Permits Now on Sale

Personal use fuelwood permits for the Sawtooth National Forest have been reduced to $6.25 per cord with a 4-cord minimum and a 10-cord maximum per household. Please note that the Forest Service will no longer sell permits of only 2 cords. If you want all 10 cords, permit purchases will need to be purchased; 5 cords and 5 cords, or 4 cords and 6 cords, or all 10 cords at once. Two reasons driving this change are to aligne the overall price of the fuelwood to be closer with other National Forests in southern Idaho, and to help remove the fuel load since woodcutting is limited to dead trees. The 2018 fuelwood season for the Sawtooth National Forest is May 15, through November 30, 2018, and remember... cutting fuelwood within a closure area is prohibited. “Please check this year’s fuelwood brochure and current Motor Vehicle Use Maps to make sure you are cutting in an area open to fuelwood gathering and pay special attention to closed areas and roads with restoration activities,” said Sawtooth National Forest Timber Program Manager, Scott Wagner. “Also, the forest has regulations prohibiting the cutting of dead or living whitebark pine trees which are declining and are critically important to several wildlife species.” Permit holders are encouraged to cut fuelwood early in the year because fire restrictions may impact the cutting season later in the summer. Early season fuelwood cutters are asked to use caution, avoiding wet muddy roads, where travel may cause resource damage. Fuelwood cutting is not allowed within riparian areas (adjacent to creeks and rivers). Fuelwood permits are valid within the Boise, Payette and Sawtooth Forests. All motorized travel related to fuelwood gathering must be in full accordance with Forest Service travel regulations for the area as shown in the Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM), unless specifically exempted in the fuelwood permit. Regulations for each forest are available when permits are issued. For additional information, contact the local Ranger District offices, or Forest websites. Permits are available at Sawtooth National Forest Ranger District offices, the Sawtooth Supervisor’s Office (370 American Ave., Jerome, Idaho), and private vendors in southern Idaho.

Margaret Mea Miles

1-888-934-1862 • Wednesday, May 9, 2018 • The Courier NEWS

Margaret Mae Miles, 83, of Gooding, Idaho, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 surrounded by family after a very short battle with cancer. Margaret (Marge) was born on December 11, 1934 in Blandburg, PA to Clarabel Myrtle Varner & Rubert ‘Jay’ Thompson. She and a younger sister Lucinda were cared for by foster families throughout their childhood. She attended grammar school in Smithfield and completed high school at Huntingdon High, graduating in 1952. Shortly after graduation, Margaret left Pennsylvania and traveled to Sacramento, California where she was briefly reunited with her birth mother. It was in California where she met a young airman named Cecil Miles. After a courtship and permission from Cecil’s commanding officer, the two were married on New Year’s Day in 1953. The couple lived in Modesto and Margaret attended a semester of junior college majoring in accounting before she became pregnant with their first of 3 sons. Lloyd ‘Kipp’ was born in January of 1954, followed by Kyle Patrick in August of 1956, and finally Dale Reed in July of 1957. The couple moved from Oakdale, CA to Idaho in 1971. Marge worked at Wendell Implement, and Magic Valley Packing Company (now Glanbia) before they opened Gooding Surplus and Sales on the corner of Main Street and 2nd Ave (Zeppe’s Pizza parking lot) selling army surplus merchandise and other goods. They lived in the apartment above the store before buying a home on Dorothy Ave. Cecil also worked as a diesel mechanic and a police officer in Gooding before contracting the operation and maintenance of the old Gooding Landfill in cooperation with Fred Willard. Marge operated MMM Bookkeeping. Eventually the landfill was shut down and Marge and Cecil moved to Ogden, Utah, for another employment opportunity. Cecil worked at UAW Diesel as a Master Diesel Instructor and Marge worked at A-1 Auto Parts and Salvage. They made lifelong friendships and friends became family throughout their many journeys. Marge and Cecil both retired and returned to Idaho to be closer to their children and grandchildren. They staked their retirement claim just outside Gooding and during the early 90’s, Cecil attended auctioneering college and together Marge and Cecil ran Miles Auction Service. Marge and Cecil both loved to fish. They could often be found with their motor home or camper on the shores of Magic Reservoir, Flaming Gorge, or CJ Strike Reservoir with family or friends. Marge was very fond of roses and planted, grew, and tended her rose bushes everywhere life led her. She also had a fondness of owls and her collection of owl trinkets grew to abundance over the years. Marge’s four granddaughters, and in time her great grandchildren, gave her the utmost joy. Cecil left this world and Marge in 1994. Following Cecil’s death, Marge spent months traveling Alaska and fishing with friends to help her through her grief and cope with her new solitary life. Eventually, Marge and a longtime friend of her and Cecil’s, Evan ‘Butch’ Lively, grew close and ultimately decided they were great companions for one another. Though they did not marry, they remained happily together for many years before Butch too passed in 2014. Marge was an active member of the Order of the Eastern Star and Past Worthy Matron of Cosmopolitan Chapter #36 in Gooding. She was preceded in death by her husband Cecil Miles, her parents, her sister Lucinda, and her son Kyle. She is survived by her two sons Kipp Miles and Dale (Billi) Miles of Gooding; granddaughters Kimberly Cook (Jon) of Gooding, Dana Miller (Jim) of Twin Falls, Mirinda Miles of Sand Hollow, and Amanda Haye of Burley; and her 8 great grandchildren, Kylee & Barrett (Kimberly), Braelyn & Braxton (Dana), Cecil & Alia (Mirinda), and Tyler & Gerald ‘JJ’ (Amanda). Graveside services were held on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, at Elmwood Cemetery. Services are under the direction of Demaray Funeral Service ~

Jerusalem: The Heart of Conflict?

70 years ago, Israel declared its independence with the full support of “most” of the world. It was 1948, WWII was over, and re-creating the Jewish Homeland was in part driven by the desire to atone for the atrocities of the Holocaust. Re-establishing Israel was by no means a new idea, but the need to wipeout the wrongs of Hitler and the Nazis gave the idea a new incentive. Since then, Israel has been in the crosshairs of almost every Middle Eastern county. Why? From a logical viewpoint, there is no reason. That area of the world was a trash heap - both literally and culturally. The so called “Palestinians” were never a people group. They were the outcasts of the Middle East who had nowhere else to go. Today, Israel has been transformed into an oasis. Israel is a world leader in agricultural innovations including irrigation, food storage, biological pest control, dairy farming, and a strain of potato that can be irrigated with saltwater. But... what about the Palestinians? Earlier this week, the United States officially moved its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - a truly historical event. Yet, all we heard about in the media was the “poor Palestinians” who were killed by Israeli soldiers. Should we feel sorry those individuals who lost their lives? NOT AT ALL! Neither should we believe that those terrorists represent the Palestinians. The truth is that the majority of Palestinians have no desire to eliminate Israel. Their lives are far better off with Israel in control of that area. But, they live in fear of Islamic terrorist groups like Hamas and others. Even if they are not Muslim - a large percentage of Palestinians are Christian - they risk being killed if they stand up for Israel. To put this all in perspective, consider this... in Idaho there are individuals who adhere to certain political viewpoints that no one (regardless of your political affiliation) agrees with. We all know someone in our community like this, and a couple of them are actually running for governor (I’ll let you figure out who they are). Almost universally, Idahoans reject the ideas of these people, and yet, the media paints Idaho with the broad strokes of their extremist viewpoints. In many ways, Idahoans are just like Palestinians and the Jews. The media tells the world lies about who we are, and the world believes those lies. What can we do about it? Know the truth. The real heart of conflict in the world is not in Israel (or any other place), it is in the lies we believe.
