Spring Cleaning & Locally Local Foods Evelyn Simon

Copyright 2013

Spring cleaning around here usually means mucking out the corrals. It’s good hard work and fragrant, too. We end up with a huge mound of compost material and the desire to never look a pitchfork or muckwagon in the face again. As my husband, Joe, and I were driving on Easter last month, we drove past a wild turkey feasting on gravel by the side of the road near Hagerman. It got me to thinking; here in our valley we have wild turkeys, pheasant, quail, ducks, geese, not-so-wild yaks and meat goats, sheep, cattle, chickens, probably pigs, and even trout, sturgeon, deer and elk. And, of course, fruit trees, melons and’s a long list of local food. Check out Country Elegance in Hagerman for some local food like Ballard Cheese and curds from Gooding. Soon they’ll have Hagerman grass-fed yak and goat meat too, and maybe some happy hen eggs.....

Sheepherder Monument The Hagerman Historical Society and local sheep rancher Bill Jones are getting closer to their goal of installing a life-sized monument to Idaho sheepherders. The concrete pad has been poured, and landscaping and signage is in the works. Installation of the monument may happen in April (be the first person to tell the Hagerman Valley Press when installation of the monument is happening, and win a free business card sized ad!). Monument dedication is set for 11 a. m June 29th. Mark your calendars for this exciting event. A model of the sculpture can be seen at the Snake River Grill in Hagerman. The bronze depicts a shepherd and his horse, his herding dog, and eight sheep.The artist is Idaho native Danny Edwards and the statue was cast in Wyoming. The site is at the north end of Hagerman, on the west side of the road just southwest of the RV park. The Hagerman Histori-

Cover Photo by Terrell Williams: The Owlsey Bridge, built in 1920, crosses the Snake River above the Upper Salmon Falls dam. It was part of the original Highway 30, which was the main route across southern Idaho until the late 1950s. The location originally was an early-day ferry crossing.

Fall in Love

for the girls. But wait, perhaps we could do a bike ride, visit the Shoshone Ice Caves or test our skills at rock climbing. While the falls drew us to the area, I have to say that the city has some wonderful outdoor attractions and eateries to suit most tastes. There is something special when you escape the ordinary and stumble, or in this case, fall on a delightful gem. The weekend was filled with memories and special family moments. Perhaps it is high time for your family to escape the ordinary and fall in love at Shoshone Falls.

By: Mary Keating

My family was self-diagnosed on Thursday with a moderate case of cabin fever. The fever was accompanied by an itch, an itch to get out of the office and away from laundry and yard work. A short weekend escape from the ordinary was just the prescription. With a few well-packed duffle bags and bottles of water, we headed west to Twin Falls, Idaho. It was a place I visited numerous times as a child and it seemed like the perfect opportunity for my two daughters, as well as my husband, to experience what is often referred to as the Niagara of the West.

Mary Keating is a monthly contributor to the Family Living Magazine, a national and state award-winning feature writer, Editorial Analyst for She Writes out of New York, a wife and mother of two daughters. Find her at or on Facebook.

The Facts: Shoshone Falls Shoshone Falls on the Snake River is about 5 miles east of the city of Twin Falls. When to go:

Shoshone Falls is the most well-known waterfall in Idaho and one of the most powerful in the nation ranking with Niagara, Yosemite and Multnomah Falls. Plunging over 212 feet, nearly 50 feet higher than Niagara, Shoshone Falls are breathtaking.

The spring and early summer months because the water is flowing at the highest levels. However, I have been told that the falls are spectacular all year round. How to get there:

With the car loaded and the music playlist created, we started the car late Friday afternoon. Arriving in Twin, we did an exploratory driving tour around the north side of the city. As we passed over the death defying Perrine Bridge, I closed my eyes. Suddenly there was a deep, rumbling noise emanating from my stomach. Fortunately for all, it was just a reminder that evening had arrived; time to eat.

Drive into the city of Twin Falls. After crossing the Snake River, continue about 1.8 miles to Falls Avenue. Turn left and drive along Falls Avenue for 3 miles to the signed Park entrance. Where to Stay: The majority of lodging is located on the north end of Blue Lakes Boulevard, with convenient access to shopping, restaurants and recreation at the Snake River Canyon. For a complete listing of hotels, visit the Twin Falls Area Chamber of Commerce website or www.visit-

Based on recommendations from some friends, we enjoyed grilled Idaho Trout, baby back ribs and honey roasted chicken at the Elevation 486 restaurant in the Twin Falls Center for the Arts building. As luck would have it, our table was by the window, dinner and spectacular views. There are RV and camping sites available too.

On Saturday morning we drove about 5 miles from our hotel, paid the $3 entrance fee and hit the ground walking. “Wows” and “oohs” and “aahs” echoed through the canyon. The falls are truly spectacular this spring. We then spent the better part of the morning walking the scenic trails near the falls. Along the way, we paused to catch our breath at a couple of stunning overlooks. Perspective is everything. A cooler filled with homemade turkey, salami, cheese, avocado and cucumbers baguettes serve up a fabulous picnic lunch in Dierkes Lake Park. This time I did not forget the mayonnaise.

Where to eat: Elevation 486 with spectacular views of the Snake River Canyon. The upscale restaurant specializes in classic meat and seafood dishes. Be sure to get a seat by the window. Canyon Crest Dining and Event Center with breathtaking canyon views serves us steaks, salads and pasta. Buffalo Café is a great place to eat bacon and eggs. The house specialty, Buffalo Chip Skillet, is a local favorite. Another local favorite is the Train Wreck at the landmark Depot Grill.

After lunch, three of the four travelers voted to walk across the Perrine Bridge. The Bridge is a huge draw and has become an international destination for parachute BASE jumpers. However, if you are like me, fearful of heights, it is perhaps best to forgo crossing the bridge on foot. It sits almost 500 feet above the floor of the Snake River Canyon. The four-lane, 1500-foot-long-bridge has pedestrian walkways with views of the river and surrounding area. I find it most unnerving that people choose to cross the bridge by foot and some actually are happy to jump off the edge!

Anchor Bistro a local pub. And others like O’Dunkens, The Depot Grill and a host of places in historic downtown. What to Do: Shoshone Falls Dierkes Lake has a unique blend of recreational activities and perfect vantage points for viewing Shoshone Falls. Dierkes Lake has enclosed swimming areas, kayak and canoe rentals, sandy beaches, picnic shelters, restrooms, a playground and trails back to the Hidden Lakes. Lifeguards are on duty in the summer. A 1.7 mile loop takes you around the lake and the cliffs are popular with local climbers.

For others, like me, who see the bridge as more a spectator sport, there are overlooks of the canyon, the river and the bridge along the canyon rim trail.

Perrine Bridge

Once the thrill of the bridge and the teasing of mom passed, we checked out Centennial Waterfront Park and then strolled through the historic downtown district. The district offers an eclectic mix of independent, antique and specialty shops.

Hike, walk, bike, fish, climb, white water, shop, BASE jump and more. Fees $3 per car/$20 per bus. Annual permits are $25 and the park is open from dusk to dawn.

When we finally washed up in our hotel room at the end of the day, we were exhausted. On Sunday, the Buffalo chip skillet, a plate of fried potatoes, chilies, tomato, bacon, sour cream and cheddar cheese was dished up for a late morning breakfast by the Buffalo Café. The plate is huge, and it is best shared. After a hearty meal and stroll through the Magic Valley Mall, it was time to turn the car around and head back to work and reality. On the way home, we each discussed our next adventure in Twin Falls: a white water rafting trip for mom, a golf afternoon for dad and swimming in the Dierkes Lake and a picnic

Dear Friend, I’m outraged that Congress allowed Section 735, the Monsanto Protection Act in a short-term spending bill and passed it and that President Obama has now signed it into law. This is a deep betrayal of our most basic constitutional rights and by signing H.R. 933 without issuing a signing statement or taking other actions to block this provision you have allowed great harm to America’s family farmers, our environment and our democracy.

CSI Horticulture Club teaches free fruit tree pruning workshop Students in the College of Southern Idaho’s Horticulture Club and their instructor Dave Kiesig will hold their annual fruit tree pruning workshop at Centennial Park on Saturday, April 6. Writing Contest for 5th and 6th Graders

In an effort to balance this violation of our basic rights, I am urging President Obama to issue an Executive Order to require the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods, something that you promised farmers while on the campaign trail in 2007.

The Twin Falls Chapter of the Idaho Writers League is sponsoring a writing contest for any fifth or sixth grade student in the Magic Valley. Students may submit a short story or a poem (or both) for a chance to win prizes. The grades will be judged separately.

It is urgent that the U.S. government rectify the 20 year old politically engineered loophole and allow for open and transparent labeling of genetically engineered foods, a basic right that citizens in 62 others countries already enjoy.

Winning stores must have a beginning, middle and end. A central event such as a conflict or discovery will help move the story along. Characters who change or learn a lesson will make it more interesting. Submitted stories must be between 500 and 1,200 words. monsanto_protection_act_time_to_label_gmos/

Students can also enter a poetry contest. Winners will be selected based on quality of verse-including rhythm, meter, word choice, wordplay, imagery and the use of poetic devices such as rhyme or alliteration. Poems must be 25 lines of less.

Simon Boers Chevon LLC

Include a title page with each entry listing the name of the story or poem, the student’s name, grade, and which school.

Grass-fed goat meat by the cut or Custom half or whole goat, or wethers ‘on the hoof ’.

College of Southern Idaho student senators have planned a pasta dinner the evening of Friday, Apr. 12 to continue raising money for their annual Operation Change campaign. Formerly known as Change for Children, the activity raises funds each year for a local child or student with overwhelming needs. This year’s recipient is Prescott Hanni, a youngster with complex and extraordinary conditions that have affected his mobility and speech. The student senators will assist with the meal preparation. Selections will include spaghetti with meat sauce and chicken Alfredo, salads, and desserts. The dinner will be Local historian to discuss early Chinese mining Idaho was no stranger to one gold rush after another in the 19th Century. All it took was the mere rumor of gold veins or nuggets to bring the crash and clamor of the miners. Boom towns sprang up overnight and, often as not, disappeared just as quickly when the gold played out or when rumors arrived of greater riches elsewhere. A lesser known quest took place along the Snake River in the 1870’s after our own gold rush. That’s the one historian Ron James will discuss in “Ruins of a World: Chinese Gold Mining in the Snake River Canyon” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9 at the College of Southern Idaho’s North Side Center in Gooding. James has done extensive archaeological and ethnographic research on the Chinese and Japanese contributions to southern Idaho history. His thesis of the same name was published in 1993. Other publications include “Secrets of the Magic Valley and Hagerman’s Remarkable Horse” (2002) in which James contributed chapters on the Native American, the Astorians and mining. James teaches English and Advanced Placement Literature and Composition at Canyon Ridge High School and is an adjunct Cultural Anthropology instructor at the College of Southern Idaho. He received his M.A. in Anthropology from the University of Idaho in 1993. He is also a member of the Twin Falls County Historic Preservation Commission. This is the last in a series of lectures at the North Side Center this spring. It is sponsored by Zions Bank. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The lecture is free of charge and open to everyone.
