Buhl Mayor Pam McClain

For my first year as Buhl’s mayor, I had the privilege of participating in the annual Mayor’s Walking Challenge in October and sponsored by the Blue Cross Foundation. This year attracted 98 mayors who tried to walk at least 5,000 steps per day all months to earn funding for their community. The Mayor’s Walking Challenge, now in its ninth year, has steadily grown. Thanks to the efforts of participating mayors over the years, the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health has distributed more than $450,000 to Idaho communities from the challenge.

Swimming pools draining City budgets and hard times haven’t always meant cutbacks. An author who studied the role swimming pools played in 20th century America found more than 1,000 municipal pools were built as public works projects during the Great Depression. But this time, most governments only see decades-old pools burning holes in already tight budgets. Our pool started as a dirt pond in 1910-1911 and was free to the public. In 1940-1941 our current pool was built and continued to be free until May 12 th , 1986. But as is the way of life, the pool has continued to need upgrades, heated water was added in 2005, and for legal reasons, lifeguards are required to maintain the safety of the swimmers.

When you think about American culture — swimming and summer just go together. A lot of kids not having the opportunity to swim — it’s just hard to swallow. Not only is it important for safety, but what you should do as a kid is swim and have fun and be active.

But running a pool is an expensive proposition. The City of Buhl spends $64,716.78 a month on insurance, operations and maintenance even for the pool’s current limited use. The City of Buhl had a deficit of $48,989.18 in 2022.

That’s money we take from the general fund where we have to focus on vital services to our community. Municipal pool closings happen all across the country and shuttering of other recreation opportunities leaves children with far fewer good choices to occupy their free time during the long summer months. Pools “are just a safe place to be and be kids, to enjoy summer, to enjoy good times with family and friends. I found in my research that the traditional municipal pool … those are in decline and the primary reason is economics. They don’t age well and the infrastructure and pool chemicals are expensive. In their place, more communities are building water parks, where splash pads, water slides and other attractions can bring in entire families and allow parks and recreation departments to charge $8 or $9 a person instead of the $2 to $3 admission more common to a regular pool.

I have instructed the city council members to come up with out of the box thinking regarding the pool before we continue to lose more money each year. Running at a deficit is not good business for our citizens. I have come up with ideas I am running by our city attorney first. My husband has come up with some ideas also.

Think about this: What are kids going to do over the summer? Play video games or just get in trouble? We encourage people to share their constructive ideas regarding the pool. The first place to start, of course, is raising the price to where we can break even. I have instructed our City Treasurer to start on that scenario to run by the city council. No matter what you see on social media, NONE of us wants our city asset to shutter its doors.

(Con’t from Nov). Space donated Magic Valley News December was a festive time in Hagerman Valley. Each year, like clockwork, hay wagons with carolers made their way up and down the city streets. The wagon my sister and I rode originated from the little white church we attended on the east side of town. More often than not, Dad volunteered his truck and hay wagon for these once a year, evening, sing-alongs. Participating youth bundled up in warm attire; sweaters, snow hats, mittens and crocheted scarves. (con’t p23)

Growing up in Hagerman Valley

(con’t from p18)

Homemade afghans and woolen blankets lay on the laps of students who were sitting on hay bales covered by tarps.. Dad or another volunteer driver planned to stop by the doorsteps of many respected older folks in town. Traditional Christmas choruses were well

known by most Hagerman students back then thanks to our wonderful school music teacher, Mrs. Joyce Snapp. ‘Oh, Come All Ye Faithful’, ‘The First Noel’, ‘Joy to the World’ and ‘Silent Night’ were sung, to name a few, as the wagon moved slowly along. Small song books were supplied for the teenagers, as a backup for second and third verses. Most of the youth group kids came prepared with a flashlight and extra batteries. Folks would leave (con’t p27)

Growing up in Hagerman Valley (con’t from p23)

the warmth of their fireplaces momentarily and step outside to hear the young carolers sing.

Smiles from doorsteps were all the reward needed as we sang to Hagerman friends. At an ending destination volunteers filled styrofoam cups with foaming milk and a combination of bitter baking powder chocolate with a heaping spoonful of sugar and topped with marshmallows! Laughter and chatter filled the air as youth reminisced about the fun evening of caroling, while they drank the sweet warm essence.

At home, Christmas began with the tree. Excitement was felt as dad carried in a perfect ‘not so perfect’ pine. Dad was always so proud of it! He’d stand back and take a look at the finalized straightening, “Now that’s a Tree!” he’d say! Then once it came into the house, the decorations came out and we had a lot of them! First, the lights had to be unwound and layed in long stands on the floor from the dining room, through the kitchen and to the living room. Then, we began the fun task of winding the strings around the tree from top to bottom. One could never have enough lights! Our favorites were blinking ones! Finally, the Christmas Tree was topped by an Angel. Next, colorful bulbs which were packed up the January before came out. Special tree decorations brought back good memories of the year they made their first debut from friends and neighbors.

My most enjoyable step in the decorating process was called ‘Icicles’!! I got a little carried away in my younger years. While my older sister pulled the silver icicles apart meticulously placing one or two on specific places of each branch, I put on a few more, like gobs at a time, just for visual effect! One could never have enough sparkles! At some point, someone came along and regrouped the icicles while I was not watching. It seemed like there was a more uniform look the following morning! Santa must have sent his busy elves early, or was it my sister putting on her final touches?! All in all, the tree looked quite beautiful, with all the branch spaces filled in. It was great fun to wrap presents before the big holiday! We had a huge built-in gift wrapping drawer, by the family room. Much of the wrapping paper was stronger back then and salvageable. Some individuals in the family used a table knife to carefully open presents, where the package had been taped, and some of us did not. All leftover paper, still in pretty good shape, was folded and placed back in

that gift wrapping drawer, to use again. There were abundant choices of colorful printed designs, available for celebrations! With each use, the same pieces of wrapping paper got smaller and smaller as they were smoothed and placed back into that familiar space of celebration. There were lots of pieces of ribbon there, too!

Every December, back then, my mom’s brother took our family photo. The pictures were in black and white and photographed in front of the farmhouse fireplace. We all got dressed for the pictures, I looked a little goofy with my uneven bangs, one knee sock lower than the other, a shoe bent over to the side or just a giddy smile. My older sister, on the other hand, had nicely kept hair, stylish coordinated outfits, proper posture and lovely ready for the photo posture. To this day, she always looks well put together and even has her own clothing business! My little brother who came along six years after me looked so cute with his hands folded together for a timely family photograph! He sported a little suit jacket and bow -tie at the early age of eight months. I will always be grateful to have those special photo memories, thanks to our Uncle Bill!

The big event of the year was our School Christmas Program. When I was in first grade we dressed up for a play presented on the auditorium stage. A few children dressed up like angels, but most played the part of kids seeing Santa, on Christmas morning! I was relieved not to have to wear pajamas, however glitter glued on the angel wings scratched between my shoulder blades. I alerted the first grade teacher and she summoned the second grade teacher for a serious talk.

They momentarily gave my shoulders a microscopic look. I felt so important to be the center of attention! “Her skin looks Very Irritated” one remarked. “Wow”, I thought, “I learned a new word, “irritated!” But, that was that, as both turned their attention to other children. “Over here, Someone, Anyone?” I spoke beneath my breath. That was it!! I endured the glittery scratchy wings the rest of the concert. Irritated or not, it didn’t alter my belief in real Christmas Angels!

At the end of the annual school Christmas Programs we could count on Santa Claus making an exciting anticipated appearance. ‘Merry Christmas’ Santa would shout out to ‘One and All’ as he skipped merrily around the edges of our gymnasium. He was so jolly but seemed like he could use a few more cookies and milk. Each student anxiously received a small brown paper sack from Santa and the teachers filled a popcorn ball, coveted hard ribbon candy, special salty snacks, traditional red (con’t p31)

Growing up in Hagerman Valley

(con’t from p27)

and white striped candy canes and other goodies, any child would enjoy. Every Christmas Santa strangely resembled one of our longtime Hagerman residents, Mr. George Lemmon, who was dearly respected and loved!

Back on the home front, we kids each received a main toy from Santa Claus. I remember the excitement running around the corner early one Christmas morning to see a doll about as big as myself sitting in front of the fireplace with a light blue dress, my favorite color. My sister received an identical one with a light pink dress, her favorite color. Each of us four kids had been given a large red felt Christmas stocking created by our Great Aunt Marjorie, with our first initial sewn on the toe and white palm -palm tassels tatted on the top. We could count on Santa giving us each a sweet orange, some candy canes, real socks to wear to school (every kid’s favorite gift) and other small items such as playing cards, jacks, jump rope and other small toys.

Grandmother Nana and Grandad Papa came to our house for Christmas dinner every year. Papa was a gentleman, polite, kind and a good listener. Nana brought her chuckles, pies and vocal local news! Someone from outside of the family brought old fashioned fruit cake. The grownups charmed themselves with a half slice with coffee, on a clear glass dessert platelater in the afternoon (except dad who was obviously the smart one). Maybe the grateful grownups were just being polite, but we kids stayed as far away from the overly sweet and obviously sour substance as possible! We never could understand what all the fuss was about and instead anticipated pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream!!!

On the other hand, baked ham with pineapple was a hit for children! Mom’s famous high rising homemade dinner rolls, yummy buttered yams with marshmallows, golden sweet corn from our fall harvest, plus all the extras left us with pleasant memories to last a lifetime.

Mother, who is lovingly named Florence Mary, after her two aunties, was an experienced, artistic, wonderfully perfected, Masterful Cook!

Vacation between Christmas and New Years brought all kinds of adventure! It got much colder than it seems to get these days. We often loved to ice-skate on the local Sloughs (pronounced Slews). South of Hagerman there were, and still are, duck and fishing ponds on both sides of the highway just before the Snake River, locally referred to as the Gridley Bridge. The pond on the west side of the road would freeze solid many inches thick. It enticed local kids to enjoy abundant safe winter fun. No one thought of this as a concern, as it had been a local Hagerman Valley ice skating destination for generations.

On one of those pleasant skating outings, as usual, many kids were skimming across the frozen pond. It was a clear, crisp wintery day. All were bundled up to enjoy an afternoon of peaceful bliss and fun with friends. There were no worries of any kind from anyone. My sister and I had just arrived, laced up our leather ice skates and had enjoyed about five minutes of delightful freedom, on the south-side of the ice. After a few moments of skimming in circles and figure eights our serene quiet quickly subsided. We heard a definite breakage! Crack, Crunch and then Splash echoed clearly from across from the north-end. ‘Tulie’ Cattail Plants stood at attention as we heard many older teenage voices ring out, “GET OFF THE ICE!!!” Our icy world of skating on the safe ponds, as we knew it, was about to change!
