Saint Alphonsus-Nampa Serves Community for nearly 100 years The heritage of Mercy Medical Center, now Saint Alphonsus Nampa, lies in the people who have given of themselves to serve the people of Canyon County. In 1917, the Sisters of Mercy came to Nampa to serve the people and started the mission of providing quality care to everyone regardless of their ability to pay. They moved into at that time the Cushman residence at the corner of 9th and 11th Ave. S. For two and a half years the Sisters of Mercy cared for the sick under the most adverse circumstances and frequently were compelled to crowd as many as 14 patients in their tiny hospital. They themselves, lived in a tent both summer and winter so the patients could stay in the house. By the autumn of 1917, the local newspaper printed a story which read, “The Sisters of Mercy have made such splendid success in managing the hospital that facilities are becoming inadequate. A fund is being launched for the erection of a hospital suitable to the needs of Nampa.” On November 11, 1919, the town’s new hospital was opened to the public. In 1932 a $45,000 medical facility was completed, bringing bed capacity to 86. In 1958, a $450,000 expansion was completed, bringing the bed capacity to 96 together with a new surgical and obstetrical suite.

hospital and the doors of Mercy Medical Center opened in September 1968 at 1512 12th Ave. Rd. Throughout the many years, the hospital has endured expansions and upgrades. Some of the many highlights from the last decade include the Nampa Health Plaza (formerly Mercy North), Ambulatory Outpatient Surgery Center, the Roger Curran MRI Center , and most recently the opening of a second ER in Nampa. In April 2010 Mercy Medical Center was purchased by Trinity Health and the new Saint Alphonsus Health System was formed including Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center Boise and hospitals in Nampa, Ontario and Baker City. The community hospital has remained true to the Sisters of Mercy Vision and our Catholic heritage. Our Mission is to serve together in the spirit of the Gospel, to heal body, mind and spirit, to improve the health of our communities and to steward resources entrusted to us. As Saint Alphonsus Nampa and Saint Alphonsus Medical Group, we look forward to providing world class care and continuing to expand our services to serve Canyon County for another 100 years. Our Vision is to truly keep care close to home and become Canyon County’s trusted healthcare partner for life.

On March 27, 1967 under the leadership of Sister Kirwin, RSM, ground was broken for a new $3.5 million, 114-bed

Our Frederic Birkeland Maternity Center and Heart Care Center will be opening in late 2013. Fulfilling our promise to keep care close to home.

Through the lens of history … O

n Dec. 9, 2013, the Idaho Press-Tribune marks 130 years of delivering news to Canyon County residents. A lot has changed in 13 decades of reporting the news. That’s the story we’re telling this year – in the form of a timeline – in print Vickie Holbrook and online at Managing editor cavalcade. This magazine is mostly about the newspaper’s history and the major milestones of this industry as it has modernized. We also tried to put it in perspective with some of the signif cant state and national events along with the timeline of the evolution of the news business. It’s diff cult to squeeze 130 years into a 64-page magazine. We’ve chosen some of the highlights we thought were interesting and we wish we had space to share more. We’ve learned over time that history is sometimes in the eye of the beholder and the perspectives are different. It’s impossible to celebrate our history without crediting the folks who made the history and later researched it and told it in different formats over the years. Much of the information about the Idaho Press-Tribune’s historic “newspaper relatives” was written in special sections — like this magazine — and republished and/or repurposed since the early 1900s. There are a few primary publications that we relied on for this project. They are:  Nampa Leader-Herald, Dec. 17, 1909  Caldwell News-Tribune, Aug. 20, 1940  1960 Progress Edition, Caldwell NewsTribune, March 30, 1960  Caldwell Revisited: 1883 – 1923, published by the News-Tribune, 1976  Caldwell Centennial: 100 and Growing –


CAVALCADE 2013 | Saturday, March 30, 2013

1883 – 1983, published by the IPT, Sept. 16, 1983  Nampa Idaho: 1885 – 1985, a Journey of Discovery by Lynda Campbell Clark, published in 1985 and sponsored by the Nampa Centennial Committee.  Nampa: 100 years, published by the IPT, June 8, 1986  Idaho Centennial: 1890-1990, published by the IPT, July 12, 1990 We also had access to old newspapers at the Nampa Public Library and history f les at the Caldwell Public Library. I have great admiration and respect for local historians who preserve news. And I’m personally thankful I don’t throw things away. As one of the “old-timers” at the Press-Tribune, I’ve become the latest collector of Idaho Press-Tribune history. I remember when our current building was going through an expansion in 20022003 and Bob Gibbs brought me a box of old lead type, including the old Idaho Free Press name plate. I tried to take a step back in time, wondering what it must have been like for “composers” to pick up individual letters and

place them in reverse to produce a galley of type. It was not an easy task, especially when you think about the width and length of old newspapers – at least 5 inches wider than today’s newspapers. I doubt the editors of yesterday handled the type, but without the men and women who “composed” the news pages, the paper wouldn’t make it to the press. When I came to the Idaho Free Press in 1979, we used the “cold type” method, where stories were printed on photographic paper, waxed and trimmed to size and carefully placed on the sheets so a negative could be produced.

Cuddy, the f rst editor and publisher of The Caldwell Tribune, located at 509 Market Avenue, (where 718 Arthur St. is located now.)

Bacon, a former Boise valley farmer, had become disillusioned with the Republican Party. He edited The Progress as an independent paper. The newspaper ceased to exist when Bacon died. “Mr. Bacon was an old gentleman … who never lost his head when there were great schemes in the air,” F.G. Cottingham wrote about Nampa’s early newspapers. “His editorials at these times were apt to be caustic, and somewhat chilly, but as time laid bare the facts we usually found he was not far astray.”

"Canyon County forever! Thus said a large majority of the honest yeomanry (hard working men) of the new county at the polls last Tuesday.

He was at the helm of the Leader six years, and during that time the paper was never issued late nor did it ever miss an issue. There were times when Editor Mock was hard pressed not to break his record.” Once, when his supply of white paper was limited, he visited “Falk’s store, and spying a big bundle of yellow wrapping paper, he purchased it, and the Leader appeared on time in all its saffron glory."

I couldn’t answer his questions, but I think we found the mysterious boy who sold papers at Dewey Place. “I wouldn’t swear to it, but it looks like me,” Prater said. “But I don’t know who took it. That could be me.” That truly is one of my most favorite “historic” moments. I don’t know why, because there’s so much in 130 years. That might change in the coming years. Another memorable day came in 2005, when the Idaho Press-Tribune held a “Proud to be 2C” bus trip tour around Canyon County. Longtime customer Patti Sweet was one of the passengers, and later she passed on to me a 1936 receipt for the Idaho Free Press when it was just 50 cents for a month’s worth of delivered papers. It was signed by Vernon Cochrane. It seems like just a few years ago when I started at this newspaper. But in reality, it was 34 years ago. And even though it feels like yesterday when I was named managing editor, 17 years have whizzed by. A lot has happened in those years, and we’ve included some of those highlights in this magazine. — Vickie Holbrook

Very early in my career, I had the opportunity to meet two former editors: Jack Scudder and Pete Hackworth. Scudder edited the Free Press and Hackworth ran the News-Tribune newsroom. I wish now that I had interviewed each of them. But hindsight is always 20-20. I don’t have specifics about the two men but I would love to obtain more information, including dates, if you have details that you can share with me. And if you have any other documentation about the history of the Idaho Press-Tribune and her predecessors, please give me a call at 465-8110 or email me at

JULY 1919

MAY 2, 1919

The Free Press published an editorial critical of the anti-sedition laws and “excused those who mailed bombs to prominent citizens nationwide in April of 1919. … “ ‘ When excitable men are not allowed to talk with their tongues it is an old lesson of experience that they will begin to talk with dynamite,’ the paper concluded.” … “The editorial caused a storm of protest in Nampa and the surrounding communities. Concerned citizens organized a meeting at the city hall” and the people “began to yell for a bomb to blow up the Free Press building.” Ned Jenness, the owner of the Nampa Leader-Herald said, “ ‘We must get the Free Press in a bad way … If we can’t f nd a bomb we can get a gas shell. That makes a noise and a stink.” With the paper just a month old a lawsuit had already been f led to stop the paper and oust Scholtz. That lawsuit was dismissed, but Ned and Harold Jenness sued the Free Press for libel, eventually winning $100 damages plus attorney fees after it went all the way to the Supreme Court, Clark writes.

The Idaho Free Press moderated its editorial stance and stopped publishing its daily column called “Little Lesson in Civics.”

Money from the Caldwell Salvation Army’s Christmas kettle drive was down last year, Capt. Aurelio Ambriz said. And the organization has run out of funds for winter electric bill assistance, which helped offset the cost of food for people in need. The Great Recession has stretched more and more people thin, DeAnda said. And even those on food stamps or those with jobs need more food to get by. “What I’ve heard is a lack of eligibility for assistance and a lack of employment,” DeAnda said about the increased need.

Why is the food supply low? The United States Postal Service food drive in May brought in 18,000 pounds of food for the Salvation Army. That normally lasts until fall. But with Christmas donations running low and increased demand, inventory from the food drive may run out this summer.

Do people take advantage of other food programs? Yes, but sometimes they may not be eligible for or aware of other food programs. Some parents can’t take their children to the free summer lunch program in Canyon County because of their work schedules.

VP candidate says race is not slipping away for Romney; Obama leads in polls in many of the nine key states


BOISE — Shelby Law, U.S. Bureau of Land Management meteorologist who helps predict fire danger for Idaho, said some interesting benchmarks underscore why the 2012 fire season will be remembered as long, severe and very expensive. For instance, the fire season in 2007, when an area three times the size of Rhode Island burned, ended when a big rain and snow storm hit the first week of September. This year, October has arrived, with no such weather in sight. Hundreds of firefighters are still busy on the 23-squaremile Wesley Fire upstream of Riggins, a big wildfire that got started late in the season. “It’s not very often we have new team fires in September,” Law said, adding the El Nino weather pattern predicted for this winter could set the region up for another bad fire season in 2013. “If it does happen, we’ll be right back in it next year. Wildfire potential will remain (elevated) in the West.” So far, the costs for all Idaho’s suppression efforts aren’t in, but early estimates show a heavy expense. Fighting the Wesley Fire, sparked by lightning along U.S. Highway 95 on Sept. 9, has cost $11.5 million so far. That’s nothing compared to the Mustang Complex, a fiery collection of nine blazes near the Idaho-Montana border that have cost more than $35 million after starting July 30, again by lightning.

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney’s running mate shot down the need for a breakthrough in the first presidential debate Wednesday, trying to allay Republican concerns that the race is slipping away with five weeks to go Paul Ryan and momen- VP candidate tum on President Barack Obama’s side. Vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, working to keep debate expectations for Romney in check, praised Obama’s debating skills and called the Democratic incumbent “a very gifted speaker” with years of experience on the national stage. He played down signs that Obama is gaining distance in the most competitive states. Polls are tight, Ryan said, and will stay that way until the election Nov. 6.

arlyne Markus, 83, has been delivering papers for more than 54 years — a decade longer than any other woman on

record. But, saddening many of her customers, the Guinness World Record holder has retired, delivering her last paper Sunday before most people were even awake. Markus, of Nampa, loved her job, she said, but never set out to break a world record. “It’s a good feeling, but at first I never even thought of it. It’s just something I did because I enjoyed it, it was healthy for me.” The route carried her through a dark time in life, she said. As a young mother who had lost a baby boy six years prior and had undergone a hysterectomy that caused nervous breakdowns, Markus said she needed something to get her out of the house. So, at age 29, she accepted a part-time paper route job in the afternoons with Idaho Free Press, now the Idaho PressTribune. She’s been working the night shift for about 20 years, traveling 43 miles each night, seven nights a week, often with the help of her hus-

Caleb Baker grew up moving often, helped him adapt


Vallivue High senior hopes to attend Air Force Academy

BY THE NUMBERS She was 29 YEARS OLD when she started in June of 1958. Now she’s 83. 44 YEARS: Previous world record for longest serving paper carrier 43 MILES: Current route length. For her first 10 or 15 years, her route was more than 70 miles each day.

Because Vallivue High School senior Caleb Baker has moved so many times in his life, he now has the desire to learn about world cultures and travel as much Caleb Baker as possible — something he might get the opportunity to do when he goes into the U.S. Air Force. Baker, whose father is in the Air Force, has lived in Maryland, Texas, Misawa, Japan, Caldwell, back to Maryland, and back to Caldwell his sophomore year. It didn’t take long for Baker to become familiar again with the area and rekindle old friendships.

There are much greater problems in this world than the things most people deal with in high school, and if you just see past that, your perspective will change dramatically.

Protect Our Kids,


Passing a stopped school bus is a serious offense in Idaho. For the SAFETY of ALL, you as a driver must know the law. Your responsibilities are: To prepare to stop when the amber warning lights on the bus are flashing. These lights are your signal that the bus is preparing to stop and you should be preparing to stop, too. To stop when the red stop lights on the bus are flashing and the side stop arm is displayed. This means the bus is stopped and you should be stopped, as well.

On a two-lane road, traffic in both directions must stop when the bus does. On a four-lane road, only the traffic behind the bus is required to stop. Don’t get in a big hurry and try to pass the bus. There may be kids coming or going from both sides of the street and they are relying on the traffic stopping.

✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦✦ roadway: 31 Two-lane When school bus stops for passengers, all traffic from both directions must stop!

When school bus stops for passengers, only traffic following the bus must stop!

2 Two-lane roadway with a center turning lane:
