His lively and friendly subtle personality made him the “life of the party” any time, anywhere. He had the right word at the right time, humbly laughing along. He was the strong base for his family, always proud of his children and grandchildren, a loving support to his wife, Carol. James is survived by his wife of 57 years, Carol Underwood Justice; two daughters and sons-in-law, Ann and Scott Sutton, and Jill and Joel Rushing; a son, William Howard Justice and wife, Amy; two sisters, Margaret Hoff, and Billie Johnston and husband, Ray; a brother, Perry Justice; grandchildren, Drew and Dan Sutton, Travis and Molly Rushing, Maggie and Sam Justice; sisterin-law, Lorie Justice; and brother-in-law, Art Swoboda.

Scurge of the Earth... continued Terry D. Ruby, Tri County Noxious Weed Control In my last column I mentioned that Scotch Thistle was the scurge of the earth. I meant it folks. In my travels through the three county area, Gooding, Lincoln and Jerome counties, II have found this plant “popping up” in places never seen before. And coming great guns in areas that have traditionally been lightly infested. I will say again, ONE plant left to go to seed can create thousands for many years to come. My recommendation is this, if there are just a few, less than 100, plants on your property, CUT THEM DOWN. If there are more than 100, get some professional advice on how to control them. Your local Noxious Weed Control Superintendent is very knowledgeable on the control of this pest. If you don’t believe that this plant can “take over” in an area, just ask some old timers about the first one they saw in their area. It hasn’t been that long ago that this plant did not exist here. What weed am I going to pick on next? Keep looking and find out.

...but never Compromising the Truth.

Cup of Tee

I hope everyone enjoyed a good Fourth of July celebration whereever you chose to be. That is one of the blessings of our Fourth of July in the United States, you can choose where you want to be and do what you want to do. A big round of THANKS to our founding fathers, our militia, and each and everyone who believes and enforces our beliefs in freedom. In a recent conversation with a classmate living in England, the Fourth of July is just another day in England. That is very well understood since the 4th is truly an AMERICAN holiday. My friend said they really missed the camaraderie this year for a family barbecue. Mainly stated because they could not barbecue - it was raining so hard they could not go outside. That comment is agreed upon by me. What is a picnic if you have to sit in the garage on plastic chairs eating out of a can? This year for the Fourth of July, I was tractor pulling in Melba, Idaho, which was their 100th year anniversary. Plenty of stuff going on for sure. Prior to pulling, l drove the old John Deere 60 tractor in the parade. My tractor is basically field ready and it doesn’t have any sugar coating. The paint is years of sunshine with “fade” as it’s main color. Grease and dirt are the pin striping. The people cheer just the same. It is truly the working folk feeling! I have been in a lot of parades since my junior high school years. On many occasions I have built the floats using tons of colored napkins or tissue. I have pulled numerous displays. Each and every parade display was exhibited for the public to enjoy, and the public did enjoy the parader’s work. It was like there was mutual respect. What I am seeing now is a situation that is making parade displayers nervous, including me. Years ago candy thrown to a youngster, was a treat or a bit of excitement to involve the crowd. Today kids are lined in the streets with plastic grocery shopping bags waiting to retrieve the thrown candy. This is where l see the problem. The kids are so gung ho on getting the candy, they are not paying attention to the moving vehicles or the vehicles being towed. They have also edged themselves so far out in the street (to insure they get the candy) they actually make the parade path too narrow for the parade vehicles. Parents apparently are not seeing the safety issue by encouraging the kids to get that one piece of candy or issuing the shopping bags. The last thing I want to do is run over someone’s kid while exhibiting in a parade. This is my “Cup of Tee” parading freedom.

...Kickstarter Project continued CSI Community Education raise funds for a project. Center Offers First Time Kickstarter is “a funding platform for creative projects. Every project is independently crafted, put to all-or-nothing fundHomebuyer’s Course ing, and supported by friends, fans, and the public in return for rewards. (kickstarter.com)” Leidecker is offering a variety of rewards to those who want to support his project, including a custom designed T-shirt, signed pre-ordered copies of the guidebook, photographic prints of the Sawtooth Mountains, and a 3day, 4-night photography expedition into the mountains through Sawtooth Mountain Guides. Matt and his family spent four months during the summer 2011 researching the trails and peaks for this guidebook. He traveled and lived with his wife Christine and two children Sarah (4) and Max (2) in a 1987 Jayco Motorhome. As they camped around the perimeter of the Sawtooths, both parents would take turns hiking the trails and taking copious notes linked to GPS waypoints. Between June and October, the pair hiked a total of 55 days, covering 721 miles of trail and climbing more than 150,000 vertical feet in the process. Matt organized the information and wrote the book between October 2011 and June 2012. In addition to detailed maps and route information, the book includes sections on the history and geology of the Sawtooths, information on technical climbing in the range, and a mini field guide to more than 60 of the most common wildflower species. The book contains 30 full-color topographic maps, and more than 100 stunning photographs. It will be printed on synthetic YUPO waterproof and tearproof paper. The book will be released at the end of July, but the Kickstarter campaign allows supporters to pre-orders copies signed by the author. The Exploring the Sawtooths Kickstarter campaign can be accessed online at:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/852912006/ exploring-the-sawtooths Matt Leidecker is a photographer, author, and publisher based in Ketchum/Sun Valley, ID. He has written two rafting guidebooks to the Middle Fork of the Salmon River (2005), and the Rogue River in Oregon (2008). His first hiking guidebook, Exploring Sun Valley – A Comprehensive Guide to the Boulder, Pioneer, and Smoky Mountains was published in 2010. Idaho River Publications LLC published all of the guidebooks. Sun Valley Press published his first book of photography, Impassable Canyon – A Journey Down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in 2002.

Twin Falls, ID, July 3, 2012 – The College of Southern Idaho’s Community Education Center is offering the non-credit homebuyer’s education course, Finally Home, beginning on Tuesday, July 16 at the Twin Falls Campus. This HUD-authorized course is specifically designed for first-time low to moderate-income homebuyers and addresses some of the issues that potential homeowners face as they take the steps to purchasing a home. The Finally Home Homebuyer Education program is an eight-hour course that takes participants from the “can I and do I want to become a homeowner” to “how do I maintain this important investment?” Potential homeowners learn the steps involved in making their biggest investment, including: who are the key players in the home buying process, why is good credit important, how to fix bad credit, how to apply & qualify for a loan, how to shop for a home, what happens at closing, the financial benefit of homeownership, how to avoid delinquencies, defaults & foreclosure & much more. Participants will receive a certificate of completion that can potentially help qualified borrowers take advantage of special programs offering down payment or closing cost assistance, the use of gifted funds or more generous debt ratios. The Finally Home course will be held on Tuesdays, July 16 & 23, from 6-10 pm at CSI. The cost to register is $20 and students can register at http://communityed.csi.edu. Class size is limited so early registration is suggested. For more information on this and other CSI Community Education classes, visit http://communityed.csi.edu, or http:// communityed.csi.edu/finallyhome/. Course catalogs are available at outlets throughout the greater Twin Falls area, Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce and on the CSI campus. To register for classes, call the CSI Community Education Center at (208)732-6442, or register and pay online at http:// communityed.csi.edu.
