DEQ Seeks Comments On Water Quality Report

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is seeking public comment on its draft 2016 status report on water quality in Idaho’s rivers, streams, lakes, and reservoirs.

DEQ developed the report using data and information DEQ had collected as well as information from other agencies, organizations, and individuals, including data and comments submitted by the public during the past five years (2012–2016).

Reba the Oberea

1-888-934-1862 • Wednesday, July 11, 2018 • The Courier NEWS

ve We’ d omputer epair hop e Mov 115 3rd Avenue West ~ Gooding


from the Bug Crew One day a little beautiful baby girl was born to a lovely, leafy home, where she was beloved by all of her friends and family, her name was Reba. She lived in a small patch of leafy spurge right next the Soldier creek in Camas Idaho. She was born into a noble family that had kept the Camas prairies safe from Leafy spurge for the past five years. She had been chosen from the day she was born, to venture out and find better pastures for them to move to. So, she started her journey she knew it would be dangerous. After all there was a lot that she knew about leafy spurge. As Reba flew over the leafy spurge patches she recalled that they are a deep-rooted, aggressive, persistent perennial that reproduces vegetaively and by seed. Think back on her some of her training she remembered that the plants have and extensive root system which grows horizontally and is capable of reaching depths up to 20 ft. The stems beneath her were thickly clustered and had narrow, alternate leaves which exude milky latex when damaged. What she could see of the flowers were small and yellowish-green and are enclosed in showy yellow-green bracts. She couldn’t see the seeds, but she knew that they are oblong and occur in clusters of three. When the seeds are dry, the capsules shatter and spread the seeds as far as 15 ft from the plant. She flew of many areas full of leafy spurge that was in grassland and forests and riparian areas she was saddened as she saw it displace native vegetation wherever it grew. Reba was now in her adult stage. This means that she will have a red head, black eyes, and a slender body. Her antennae are nearly as long as the body. Her brother had emerged several days before her, because males emerge before the females. She was soon ready for a mate two weeks later. She re-thought how she would need to lay her eggs once she found a good place. She knew that females often girdle the upper part of the stem, gnaw a hole into the tem above the girdle, and deposit an egg into the hole from the end of June to mid-July. Reba and her fellow female bugs can produce approximately 60 eggs during her lifetime. Larvae hatch 10 days after eggs are laid and feed in leafy spurge stems on the pith, tunneling downward to the rood crown where they remain furring the winter. Once she and the rest of the Oberea ad done their jobs the plant would wilt and die. Reba was excited to know that crown and root feeding reduces the plant’s root reserves and allows pathogenic fungi to enter infested leafy spurge roots. As she flew she found the perfect place to call home. It was full of threes and was a moist area. Reba was a biotype specific bug and only attracted certain types of leafy spurge, but at least she knew that she was making a difference. If you would like to join Reba on her quest to find new infestations of Leafy Spurge and help her make a difference, call Terry Lee @208-764-3512. He can assess your weed infestation and see if it is suitable for Biological control provided as a free service to Camas County by The Camas Bug Crew.

Cup of Tee

© In January, while I was moving, my 1988 Kenworth semi and refrigerated trailer were stolen off the property I had been living on. I was loading stuff from my barn and placing it in the trailer. I reported the theft to the Canyon County Sheriff’s office (the county where I was living). I spent every extra moment looking for my stolen truck and trailer. I even spent my birthday in January riding in an airplane looking my truck. How could anyone not see a missing semi and trailer? They are a little hard to hide. There was enough unique stuff about my setup that it was very identifiable, including the name “Lady Baltimore” on the side of my trailer. No news ever came up about my truck. I began to get really frustrated about what was NOT happening. It seemed like I was just getting the run-around on every detail of an investigation. On does not want to think that their truck has headed to Mexico or sitting in some shop somewhere getting cut down into parts. The people who were tenants of the place I’d lived, to me weren’t of reputable character. The people who bought my property realized the same. In fact, they were evicted from the premises. I told the law enforcement that I thought maybe there was a connection between my missing truck and the tenants. I think it went in one ear and out the other.

In February I went to California with my friend Jim Super to visit his cousin. While in California I had multiple calls from friends across the United States to see if I was okay. What was the big immediate concern as to my condition? I was on vacation! One of my friends was in the midwest, in a truck watching local Idaho news on his satellite TV when he called me in five o’clock California traffic. He had just seen on the news that there was a shoot out at my place. “Was I OK??” The other responses were of the same concern. Apparently, there were multiple police cars from several agencies, officers with dogs, a swat team, and a drone in which to look over every part of the farm. I guess someone had come up to the house and fired shots into the house. The neighbors notified the law and all the teams of people were there. Sounds like some kind of drug deal went down or wrong. I’m thankful I wasn’t in the vicinity. The neighborhood was a very peaceful place and my ex-home was the same. I will continue this letter next week for I don’t have enough room. This is my “Cup of Tee” on ice.
