A Blessing On Wheels

A year ago, 92-year-old Rosemary was presented an unusual bicycle by her family in Boise - a cargo style bicycle retrofitted to carry a person out front while a second individual pedels from behind. The design was simple, no hand brakes or gears, but the ride was amazing. Rosemary had ridden bicycles all her life, but at 92, her balance wasn’t what it used to be. With the new bike, she and her family have been riding all around Boise and Meridian. And, as you might imagine, this has generated interest by others wanting one of these bikes for themselves. The family formed a not-for-profit organization to provide access to affordable passenger bikes to families with loved ones experiencing age, health or disability related barriers. Thus was born... The Blessing Bike. Since then, 24 Blessing Bikes have been built with an all-volunteer group in the family garage. An “Idaho Gives” campaign in May enabled them to donate 3 bikes to veteran’s homes across Idaho and help a few low-income families obtain bikes as well. Inspired by the story of how this impacted Rosemary’s life, the staff at Bennett Hills Rehabilitation & Care Center in Gooding decided this was something they needed for their facility. They raised funds through donations to purchase a Blessing Bike and in mid-May they took their first rides with residents of the nursing home. The Blessing Bike is a fun way to get elderly or disable individuals outside in the fresh air. Every ride is a opportunity to interact with the community, to smile, and to feel alive. It’s great exercise for the staff as well.

Health Advisory Issued for Magic Reservoir

South Central Public Health District (SCPHD) and the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) have issued a public health advisory for Magic Reservoir. Results from recent DEQ water testing show the concentration of cyanobacteria (sometimes called blue-green algae) in the reservoir are now at unhealthy levels and have formed a harmful algal bloom (HAB). This is the third health advisory issued for a reservoir in south-central Idaho. The first was issued on July 8th for Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir, and is ongoing. The second advisory was issued July 25th for Mormon Reservoir, and is ongoing. The public is advised to take the following steps to protect their health in all three reservoirs: * Avoid exposure to water in reservoirs under a HAB health advisory. Make sure children, pets, and livestock are not exposed to the water. * Do not drink water with a HAB advisory. Boiling and disinfecting DO NOT remove toxins from water. * Do not allow pets to eat dried algae * If fishing in HAB water, remove all fat, skin, and organs before cooking. Toxins are more likely to collect in those tissues. Wash hands after handling. “We are issuing an advisory because these toxins can be so damaging- especially for animals who drink or play in the water,” said Brianna Bodily, SCPHD Public Information Officer. “Until this advisory is lifted we urge you to choose a different reservoir to fish and recreate in.” HABs are not unusual in warm summer months and typically shrink quickly as the water temperature drops in mid to late fall. SCPHD will issue another press release when DEQ tests show Magic Reservoir, Mormon Reservoir, and Salmon Falls Creek Reservoir are at safe cyanotoxin levels again. “You can help by reporting suspicious looking water to DEQ by phone, email, or with the bloomWatch app,” said Brian Reese, DEQ Water Quality Standards Analyst. More information is available at: www.deq.idaho.gov or www. phd5.idaho.gov

Bug Crew vs. the Camasfield Hound(stoungue) by Camas Bug Crew

Henry looked at the little MUBO and stuck out his tongue. He hated the little creature that had been living off of him for weeks, but try as he might he could not shake the pesky bug from his seeds. The MUBO, which he had named Larry, responded to his foul action by eating more of his seeds. Ugh! He was so annoying; he wasn’t worried about it though. Such a little bug could never destroy his vast armies. Henry slept well that night. Houndstoungue is a biennial or short-lived perennial which reproduces by barbed seeds that readily adhere to fur, hair, and wool. The first year the plant develops a rosette with hairy, linear leaves that range form10-30cm in length. Plants typically grow from 35-140cm tall the second year. The reddish-purple, 5-lobed flowers bloom June through August. Each plant produces an average of 500 seeds which are composed of four prickly nutlets, each approximately 1 cm in length. Houndstongue’s ability to spread has created serious problems on rangeland and pastures where the plant quickly colonizes disturbed sites and heavily grazed areas in riparian zones houndstounge contains pyrrolizdiene alkaloids, making it poisonous to livestock and horses. The next morning Henry woke to screaming. He looked out at the horizon and saw a large black cloud approaching, but as they got closer he could see that they were not really clouds but thousands of MUBO launching their attack. He tried to ready his armies but it was too late. The MUBO were everywhere, and there was no stopping them. Henry’s ignorance had led to his demise. The battle went on for many years. Long after Henry and Larry had passed, their great grandchild still fought each other. It was clear who was winning. There were only small rebel groups that followed in Henry’s ways of vanquish. The Hound’s Tongue never stood a chance. If you would like to help the Bug Crew in our fight against the spread of hounds tongue please call Terry Lee at (208) 764-3512.

70 Years of Model Railroad Up For Sale

Sometimes life throws you a curveball and you find yourself having to do something you never thought you’d have to do. Roger Paulsen worked for the railroad but his love of the tracks, railcars and locomotives went far beyond work. For the last 70 years he has been collecting model trains and his display has grown from the bedroom floor to a dedicated 30’x30’ shop. The model railroad display has over 1300 feet of HO scale tracks - about a quarter mile - along with 101 locomotives, 352 cars, 85 buildings, and lots more. Several of the model buildings are based on actual buildings in Idaho, including an exact replica of Twin Falls Roundhouse. On Saturday, August 24th, Mr. Paulsen’s collection will go on the auction block in Fairfield (348 Winona Drive - Northwest corner of town).

Letter to the Editor

Know Your Facts... Last week our 3 State Representatives wrote an op-ed in the Idaho Mountain Express slamming the State GOP for allegedly not protecting our rights. You can find it online. I would like to present the other side of the discussion with verifiable facts and expose the hypocrisy. The bill to make ballot initiatives a more comprehensive procedure was a reaction to the complaint that a few cherry picked, densely populated districts can decide if a proposed initiative will survive. Rural districts like 26, simply get left out of the decision making process. Are rural values the same as Boise? Their claim “Only wealthy, special interest groups will be able to influence a ballot initiative is hypocritical. That is exactly what happened on Prop 2. The Fairness Project, a liberal outside group which donates money to push liberal left ballot agendas, donated funds to pay Fieldworks LLC to gather signatures. Fieldworks use professional “harvesters” to get any initiative on a ballot. Guns for hire. This was shielded by the self proclaimed “grassroots” organization Reclaim Idaho. They have a complaint filed against them for sunshine law violations. The accusation by our 3 reps; “Subverting the peoples right to be a part of the political process...” is hypocritical, due to Sally Toone’s co-sponsoring of H0047 last session. This would give Idaho’s electoral votes to whatever Presidential candidate won the popular vote. So we may as well align Idaho right now with both coasts and not bother to vote! Clearly a subversive endeavor. Will the GOP leadership in 26 continue to give these 3 a pass? I hope not. Time for true conservatives to stand for their rights and beliefs. Respectfully, Jeff Kreyssig - Camas County

F&G Commission Approves Proposals For Nonresident Fees, Wolf Trapping & Permits For Stocked Pheasants

By Roger Phillips, Public Information Supervisor The Idaho Fish and Game Commission on Monday, August 12, approved two legislative proposals to advance for Governor’s Office review: a) increasing nonresident license and tag fees and b) establishing Commission authority to designate locations other than WMAs to stock pheasants and require an Upland Game Bird Permit to hunt them. The commission also adopted new rules that change gear requirements for wolf trapping. The legislative proposals and rule must be approved by the 2020 Legislature to become effective. If approved, the nonresident fees would include (exclusive of vendor fee): * nonresident combination hunting/fishing license increase from $238.25 to $262.25 * nonresident hunting license increase from $153 to $183.25 * nonresident fishing license increase from $96.50 to $106.25 * nonresident deer tag increase from $300 to $350 * nonresident elk increase from $415 to $650 Commissioners also forwarded to the legislature a proposal that would remove the current rule that requires snare diverters for trapping gray wolves, but would allow diverters to be required in local areas to reduce bycatch at the commission’s discretion if deemed necessary. The wolf snare proposal also included adding rules that mandate cable stops and break- aways on wolf snares in order to allow nontargeted animals to escape if they’re accidentally snared. The commission will meet again August 22nd at the new Southwest Region office at 15950 North Gate Boulevard in Nampa.

Cup of Tee

© Many of us are dated by some of the things we did as regular activities. Listed below may be one of those “guess my age” things, learning curve for many, or just plain regular life. If you don’t know about some, you may have to strike up a conversation with someone.

Water was drank out of garden hoses and tin cups - bottled water was unheard of. Stores were closed on Sundays. Gas pumps accepted one dollar bills similar to a car wash. There were no plastic “do all cards.” Gas was 3 gal/$1, later going to 58¢/gallon. Eating out wasn’t “fast food.” It was sometimes called a picnic. Tattoos were usually seen on military personnel. There were three channels on TV and they were off the air at midnight, substituted by black and white dots. TV news was creditable. Popcorn was manually popped on an electric stove and catsup was the dipping sauce for potato chips. A tetanus shot was almost major surgery. Sideburns were in fashion. Milk had cream on it, and it was 3¢/pint. Tires were bias ply. Stick shifts were standard in cars, wing windows were air conditioning, and cigarette lighters were used to light cigarettes.

by Tee Hurd

Music albums were vinyl records. Checks were accepted everywhere. Plastic was Tupperware. Corn syrup was only used for pancakes, candies, and icing on a cake. You could call the radio station and advertise your items for sale. You got your drivers license at the age of 14. Nestle Quick and Tang were drinks of choice. Marbles were a game of skill and Monopoly involved half the family. Parking meters were on every street downtown. A hand shake was all you needed in a business transaction. Your bicycle had a banana seat. The 20 feet from a river edge was owned by nobody and everyone had access. You bought peanutbutter in a reusable mug. You paid your power bill at Idaho Power and your phone at Mountain Bell instead of sending it elsewhere. You road in the back window of the car or the rear of a station wagon. You tuned your FM radio in to another state. The “Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag” was done every day.

This is my “Cup of Tee” revisited.
