Fairfield to Lower Building Fees Next Thursday, June 12th, the City of Fairfield will be considering an ammendment to building permit fees. Specifically, the council wants to add a special use permit for signs. Currently, signs requiring a special use permit are treated the same as buildings and/or other developments with a SUP fee of $300. The ammendment will make the SUP fee for signs $150 unless additional meeting/notices are needed. Also at that meeting, the City Council will be reducing building permit fees to bring Fairfield more in line with surrounding communities. Right now, the building fees on a 1500 square foot building are about $1900. The new fee schedule will bring that figure down to $1100 to $1200. One of the main purposes of this fee reduction is to encourage new constructon within the city, especially businesses. While the economy is giving us mixed signals, the Fairfield City Council desires to remove any roadblocks to bringing jobs and families to that community.

Edward G. Ryan, OD

Ed Ryan passed away on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26, 2014, at North Canyon Medical Center. He was born in Gooding, Idaho on September 22, 1927, the third child of Mike and Isabel Ryan. Ed attended schools in Gooding and was active in football and basketball. He graduated from Gooding High School and served in the US Navy during World War II. He graduated from the University of Idaho with a Bachelor of Science degree, and then attended Optometry School at Pacific University in Oregon where he graduated with a Doctor of Optometry degree. In 1957, Ed opened his Optometry office in Gooding, where he practiced for 52 years. He was president of the Idaho Optometric Association. He married Cheryl Hendricksen and they had four children: Julie in Laguna Niguel, California; Jeanie in Seattle, Washington; Nancy in Kuna, Idaho; and Ben in South Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Cheryl passed away in 1980. Ed married Carol Jacobson but they later parted ways. Ed was very active in the Voluntary Optometrists for Service to Humanity (VOSH) organization. VOSH

provides free eye care and donates eyeglasses in foreign countries where either the people are too poor or there are no services available. Ed made 18 volunteer trips with VOSH over the course of 20 years to foreign countries in Central and South America, Europe and Asia. After retiring in 2005, Ed enjoyed traveling and photography with his very good friend, Barbara Child from Boise, Idaho. Ed followed all his passions, the evidence of which can be found throughout his home. There are boxes of eyeglass frames, where through his love of Optometry he gave so much to others. His love of photography, which through his eyes captured the most beautiful moments of his life, including the most beautiful things God created. His pictures are filled with scenery from traveling the United States and from visiting several countries. They are of wildlife and, of course, his family. He refused to leave the town he loved and died surrounded by family. What a fitting day to die for this Veteran. He will be greeted in Heaven by his parents, his brother Dick, sister Ruth and wife Cheryl. He will be greatly missed by his children, his six grandchildren, his friend Barb, his pal Maria and his four-legged companion, Maggie. Edâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wish is to be cremated and his ashes will be placed alongside his wife, Cheryl, in Elmwood Cemetery in Gooding. There will be no funeral service. A Casual Open House is planned for Sunday, June 22, 2014, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Gooding Golf Course Country Club (1951 Highway 26) in Gooding. Everyone is invited to attend.

“Gooding Remembers Its Veterans”

Entombed in the Elmwood Cemetary of Gooding, Idaho lay over 600 Veterans who faithfully served their country when it needed them most. These veterans, now resting after their labors in life, served in every war dating back to the Civil War. To commemorate their service and sacrifice for Memorial Day, the VFW and American Legion of Gooding along with many community members, faithfully place crosses and American flags on each grave every year. Old and young unite from every profession and walk of life for a brief time to honor our universal American Heritage. During this time of reflection, tears are shed and memories shared of the many who gave their all so that the citizens of a small town in Idaho can live according to the dictates of their own consciences. The hundreds of waving flags stand as a symbol that even though these veterans are no longer walking with us in life, their service will never be forgotten.

I-84 Ramp Closures at Bliss

Getting on and off Interstate 84 in Bliss will be different for some travelers beginning today (Monday, June 2) with the closure of two ramps at the east Bliss/U.S. 26 interchange, the Idaho Transportation Department announced. The ramps will be closed for the next two months for a construction project immediately west of the interchange. The westbound entry ramp and the eastbound exit ramp at Exit 141 will be closed and traffic will be detoured onto the I-84 Business Loop to enter and exit the interstate at the west Bliss/Pioneer Road interchange at Exit 137. The ramp closure is being instituted for safety of the traveling public and to eliminate conflicts through the construction zone near Exit 141. Work to resurface the two railroad overpass bridges, near the east Bliss interchange, started on May 27 with traffic reduced to one lane in each direction through the work zone. The close proximity of the on- and off-ramps, and short area for merging traffic, led to a handful of vehicle crashes since the beginning of work. ITD will review the traffic control plan and decide if the ramps can safely be reopened during the second phase of construction, expected to begin in late July.

Camas Library Summer Reading Programs

The Camas County Public Library will be holding a special summer reading program every Tuesday in June from 2-3 p.m. at the library.

June 14: Free Fishing Day in Idaho

Saturday June 14 is your chance to try fishing for the first time, or dust off your rod and put it back into use. It is Free Fishing Day in Idaho, and Fish and Game invites everyone to celebrate the day by fishing anywhere in Idaho without a license. Though fishing license requirements are suspended for this special day, all other rules, such as limits or tackle restrictions, remain in effect. Free fishing day includes salmon; anglers don’t need a license or salmon permit, but they are still subject to all bag and possession limits. Free fishing day provides a great opportunity for novices to give fishing a try. It is also a great opportunity for those who might want to pick up an old tradition. It is also a great opportunity for parents to introduce their children to the sport for the first time. For information on a location near you, contact your local Fish and Game office.
