Buhl Mayor Pam McClain

Looking to 2023, we have a great deal coming up, such as:

• Planning for city growth and partnering with the Buhl School District and Buhl Planning & Zoning on that growth.

• Looking at a third Buhl Urban Renewal Agency area for downtown.

• Revisiting and updating old codes on our books.

• Economic development plans.

• Revitalizing the youth liaison from Buhl High School with the Buhl City Council.

• Infrastructure upgrades.

• And I'm sure much more…!

Once per month Friday morning coffees around the city are something I am considering. I would bring one department head with me. Please keep an eye out for future announcements.

Remember, council meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month at 6:30 p.m., with the second meeting of the month a working meeting for the council. You can also visit the City website.

As we enter the new year, I look forward to working with and for all of you!

Growing up in Hagerman Valley

Lora L Lewis (copyright) (Con’t from December). Space donated by Magic Valley News

January without fail was icy and cold. Ponds actually froze solid. Many young people owned a pair of ice skates which had been gifted to them at Christmas. There was no need to pay an ice skating entry fee because Hagerman Valley had its own natural outdoor ice skating rink, used for free. Just north of the Owsley Bridge, on the west side of Highway 3O, lie the duck and fishing ponds. For generations these small bodies of water, locally known as the sloughs (pronounced ‘slews”), froze many inches thick as if they were created not only for fishing in the summer months, but also for friendly freezing family fun, come winter.

Parents could drop off their kids for several hours, without a worry. On Saturdays a good number of individuals were known to be flying safely around and across the frozen body of water. Sounds of blades popping, hopping and stopping echoed across the arctic-like air. Amitoure spins leaving thin blade-cut trails in the ice left evidence from the more experienced local ice-athletes. Toppling participants quickly rebounded with no evidence of accidental battle scars, bumps and bruises under layers of warm clothing, hoping no one would notice.

Students could get away with building small bonfires close on the edge. Anyone could skate off the ice at a moment’s notice enticed by the brilliant red, yellow and orange flames to warm one’s back and hands. For those more prepared with an adult supervisor, tree limbs whittled to a point lay close by, for roasting hotdogs and marshmallows.

Organized youth groups often enjoyed a Saturday of play on the frozen ponds. 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. There were no concerns or cares of any kind. On this particular Saturday, a locally sponsored multi-age youth Sunday school party consumed the local ice-rink with fun, food, and a hot dog roasting bonfire. There was a spot on the north side of the sloughs that was supposed to be off limits to youth. This smaller area featured thinner ice lined by cattails. These plants, or as we called them,’Tullies’, grew around the pond's edges. Unbeknownst to the supervisor, some of the twelve and thirteen year old boys decided to ‘part waves’ from the rest of the group and have their own fun! (con’t p23)

Growing up in Hagerman Valley (con’t from p7)

My older brother pulled a twine rope behind him tied to our old red wooden sled which had peeling paint and metal sliders. They headed toward the Tullies. A couple of my brother’s close friends, one being a neighbor from across our upper pasture, decided to have some ambitious adventure and a rambonous ride. One of the boys shouted, “GET ON YOUR MARK, GET SET, GO!”! The two raced right past my brother, spun around, challenging each other to a duel as to who could land front first, simultaneously on the wobbly wiggly sled.

Five minutes before, my sister and I had arrived, laced up our white leather ice skates and had enjoyed some delightful freedom on the south-side of the ice. After a few moments of skating in circles and figure eights our serene quiet quickly subsided. We heard a definite breakage!

CRACK, CRUNCH and then SPLASH echoed clearly from across the north-cattail area! The Tullies stood at attention as we heard voices ring out, ‘GET OFF THE ICE’!!! Our world of free skating on the safe ponds, as we knew it, was about to come to a screeching halt!

One of the boys jumped off just in the nick of time! The other student went down with the ship!! The adult former marine supervisor jumped into action! He motioned everyone nearby to back off as he quickly reached for a limb, which had already been cut to length for the hotdogs and marshmallows. George was still frigid and cold up to his neck! Thankfully, Warren Berry’s quick thinking got him out in record time!
