Are your muscles sore? Do you have tension? Do you have chronic pain? Then maybe you could use some therapeutic massage. Beth Harrington, a certified massage therapist & reflexologist, has been helping people in Fairfield feel better for the last six years (out of her home), but just a few weeks ago, she rented space at 415 Soldier Road (downtown Fairfield, just north of the city office). Beth has always loved helping people; before becoming certified, she worked as a medical assistant for twelve years. Besides making her business more professional, the downtown office makes it easier for people to use her services. Some of the benefits of therapeutic or deep-tissue massage are pain relief, improved blood pressure, better posture, greater flexibility, and of course, stress relief. Massage is not for everyone. Beth will not work on people with cancer. Studies have shown that massage may cause cancer cells to grow faster. It is thought that physical trauma to the body (massage is a type of trauma) causes the body to go into repair mode, and the chemicals (hormones, etc.) involved in this process do not distinguish between good Also, Beth will not work cells and on you (without a doctor’s reccancer ommendation) if you have had cells. an injury. Whiplash or a twisted knee may seem like just sore muscles, but working on those areas of the body without knowing if there are cracked bones or torn ligaments can make things worse. Massage therapy & reflexology are not replacements for medical doctors, according to Beth. “I will only work on a person to a certain level. If I find something wrong, I will send that person to someone else.” To schedule an appointment, call 421-6980. The charge for a massage is a flat fee of $65 which covers up to an hour and 45 minutes.

He married Leone Rea on September 4, 1972 in Elko Nevada. They had five children; Bindi, Lara, Mitchel, Hale, and Slade. Jim spent many years in the logging and farming industries.

Courage is fear that has said its prayers Mom had plenty of courage.
June was born in Wendell, Idaho, on June 17, 1941, to Lois G. and A.J. Harms. She was raised on the family farm in Wendell. It was there that she found her early love for horses; she had several in her growing up years at home. June graduated from Wendell High School in the spring of 1960. She had recently met a remarkable young cowboy that spring on a double date with a close friend. Her date that evening wasn’t her future husband Don; Don was her friend’s date. We will say that the situation was quickly remedied. They later announced their engagement and were married July 1, 1960, shortly after her 19th birthday. This began their life story and their family. An excellent horsewoman, June was a queen contestant at the Gooding County Fair and Rodeo in 1959. She was also a member of the Sagebrush Artist Guild, served as a children’s ministry leader at Gooding Nazarene Church, and a 4-H leader for groups in Wendell, Shoshone and Gooding. You could always find her at the local Farmers Markets in Twin Falls and Gooding, selling her carefully grown fruits and veggies from her own “Garden of Eden.” June was also a very creative cook — she could make a meal out of whatever she found in the cupboard or fridge, and it was good! She sewed for all her family, making clothing and later becoming accomplished at making beautiful quilts that were usually gifts for her children or grandchildren. June was an active member of the General Assembly of the Church of The First Born. Her faith in the Lord carried her through her life in the good days and the bad and never, ever wavered. To this union was born six children, Donna (Wayne) Oglesbee of Buhl, Marty Summers of St. Petersburg, Fla., Rebecca (Denny) O’Brien of Buhl, Amy (Cary) Ferrin of Burley, Adam Hill of Hagerman and Aaron Hill (Christi) of Kuna; grandchildren, Randy, Rhonda, Rachel, April, Lance, Reva, Dylan, Andrew, Chelsey, Jared, Tanna, Brady, Breezy, Radley and Aspen; great-grandchildren, Aundre, J.J., Brandon, Bailey, Taylor, Kennedy, Nixon, Joshua, Wyatt, Jeremiah and Isabella; brothers, Larry (Linda) Harms of Wendell, Lionel (Renae) Harms of Wendell and Boyd (Pam) Harms of Weiser; sisters, Bonnie (Stanley) Andrews of Wendell and Theresa Strolberg of Buhl; as well as many beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, dear friends both near and far and extended family members; and special
friends, Arden Schmitt of Gooding, Bill and Becky Bellew of Wendell and Victor Bellew of Montana. She was preceded in death by her parents, A.J. and Lois Harms; her husband, Don Hill; and grandson, Matthew Ferrin. June was well loved by all her grandchildren, and they were dear to her heart and were a big part of the person she was. She was always drawing horses and numerous other animal pictures for the kids and passed the love of art to her children and grandchildren. She often made her great cinnamon rolls that most of her children and grandchildren couldn’t resist. Mama, you will be missed every single day, for your hugs, your humor and your love. A service will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, July 26, at the First Christian Church on Broadway Avenue in Buhl, Idaho. Interment will follow the service at the Filer Cemetery in Filer. A meal and fellowship will be offered at Calvary Chapel in Buhl following the service. In place of flowers, memorial donations are being accepted by family members to assist with funeral costs. Services are under the direction of Farmer Funeral Chapel of Buhl, Idaho.

Margaret Davidson Marnoch Margaret “Peg” C. Davidson Marnoch, 105, a resident of Nampa and formerly of King Hill, passed away peacefully on Friday, July 20, 2012 at Trinity Mission Health and Rehab of Midland in Nampa. Margaret “Peg” Marnoch was born in the village of Govan, a suburb of Glasgow, Scotland on June 8, 1907. At the age of 14 she and her family immigrated to the United States taking up residence in Philadelphia, PA. During the following ten years she was employed by the travel agency, Thomas Cook & Sons of Philadelphia. Prior to coming to the United States, Margaret Davidson and Roy Marnoch had been good friends in Scotland. The relationship was renewed and after an engagement of one year they eloped to Morristown, PA where they were married on April 5, 1930. They headed west to Idaho, settling in Emmett, where their first son, Ian was born in 1931, and then moving to the Glenns Ferry area where their second son, Kenneth was born six years later. During their many years together they were involved in ranching, construction, plumbing and finally aerospace at Rocketdyne in California for ten years. They both retired from Rocketdyne in 1966 and returned to their home at King Hill where they spent their remaining years. She was preceded in death by her husband in 1970 after a long bout with cancer; and also her two sons, Ian and Kenneth. She is survived by her Granddaughters; Paula McDermott, of Idaho, Cindy Jones, of Oregon, and Pam Edmiston, of California; Grandsons; Eric and Scott Marnoch also of California, 8 Great-grandchildren, and 1 Great-Great grandson. Peg will be remembered as a kind and compassionate person who seldom lost her sense of humor and never her Scottish brogue. Visitation for family and friends will be held from 9:30 am to 10:30 am, Thursday, July 26, 2012 at the United Methodist Church in Glenns Ferry. A graveside service will follow at 11:00 am, at Glenn Rest Cemetery in Glenns Ferry with Pastor Martin J.B. Geisel officiating. Funeral arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service – Gooding Chapel. Condolences may be shared with the family by visiting the obituary link at www.demarayfuneralservice.com.

...but never Compromising the Truth.
from the Editor The Blame Game If you have been following the events regarding Penn State University and the child molestation scandal, you witnessed something this past week that has a lot of people upset. The NCAA imposed sanctions on the Penn State Football program that went far beyond holding guilty people accountable - the innocent will have to pay too. At issue is the re-writing of history by eliminating the 112 wins over 14 years that was the record of the football players at Penn State. All this (and more) was done because the head coach during that time, Joe Paterno, was “accused” of being part of the cover-up of this horrific crime. Understand, Joe Paterno was not convicted of anything (and never will be because he has died), and as far as we know, there is no hard evidence of his involvement. Should he have known? Yes, and it is on that basis that his reputation has been tarnished. The football players, however, had nothing to do with any of this. Yet, they are being punished right along with the despicable individuals who did commit crimes. To put it in perspective, this action by the NCAA is no different than taking away the State Volleyball trophies from Camas, or the State Basketball trophy from Dietrich, or taking away the long distance gold metals from Richfield’s Sasha Kent - just because one of their coaches was accused (or convicted) of some crime. We could shrug our shoulders and say, “It’s just a game. Why should we care?” Yet, we don’t want to take the crime of child molestation lightly there should be consequences. It is being said that the NCAA is trying to send a strong, clear message to the universities in America that the cover-up of this sort of crime will not be tolerated. I wonder, though, if Joe Paterno had been a psychology professor instead of a successful football coach, would anything like this have been done or would we even know about it?

Cup of Tee
Return to Sender. No such address. No such zone. If I am not mistaken, a fellow by the name of Elvis Presley made those lyrics famous with one of his songs. To zone in, one might think of that five (currently nine) digit number that accompanies your letter sent to its destination or the letter sent to you. In the early days of zone, a city could be followed by two numerals which were individual zones within a city. In 1943 a postal zip system was implemented with each town having a couple of numerals following the city destination. There were so many postal clerks serving in World War II that the inexperienced help could not correctly get mail to its right zone. This was the first of real zip coding (or that the process was instrumented). Until the late 1950’s most all mail was delivered by the rail system. There were over 10,000 mail trains. The 1960’s brought on a new mode of mail transportation - the airplane. With the use of airplanes the mail system again needed another upgrade or work over. On July 1st, 1963, the U.S. Post Office instigated its new coding system to ensure faster processing of mail. The system was dubbed the “Zoning Improvement Plan” or ZIP code for short. From that moment forward, every address in the United States was equipped with a zip code. Of the five digits, the first digit was a specific geographic area. The next tow digits were for a regional center, with the last two digits being a particular post office. Nation wide, about 42,000 zip codes are in place. The zip code is basically issued in three types. There is the P.O. Box only classification (these are usually United States Government). Then there are the unique zip codes which generally only include big business (APO and FPO for our armed forces are included with unique zones). The rest of us get the standard zip code designation which is basically our living area. Once the zip code system was in operation, most of the cities were assigned numbers by alphabetical order. An example of this is Meridian (83642) and Middleton (83644) - Meridian alphabetically comes before Middleton. A postal zip code was fairly easy to remember until growth (computer reading) needed more details for destination. Now I have a hard time remembering the extra four numerals. Even as the zip systems delivers mail to a destination, some destinations in Idaho are set to be closed because of the U.S. Post Office’s nine billion dollar deficit. Currently, 21 post offices in Idaho are set to be closed. Some have already been closed. Return to sender. No such address. No such zone. This is my “Cup of Tee” going postal with a little “zip”.
