Did you know?

Did you know thatyour local food pantries and senior centers could always use your excess garden produce and fruit? Every year some of our most faithful suppliers of these items are unable to continue supplying the fresh fruits and vegetables so we are always looking for new community members to step up and help their friends and neighbors. These garden fresh items are always welcome at the food pantries to add to the food boxes that are given out throughout the year. Consider enlarging your personal or community garden to have the extra that can be used by others. They will even take overgrown zucchini that can be grated and makes the best zucchini bread. Thank You Buhl Community Blood Drive, April 15, 2022 81 donors contributed 85 units of blood Next Drive is July 8th, Redcrossblood.org Space is compliments of Hagerman Valley Foundation

BUHL PUBLIC LIBRARY

Our brand new community garden donated by WEMA (West End Men's Association) is all set up and has been planted by our preschoolers. We are growing turnips, onions, tomatoes, strawberries, and melons for the Buhl Food Bank. Let's please have this be a community effort with volunteers helping to keep these plants alive, weed free, and producing for our locals in need. Stop in anytime to see how you can volunteer to help with this project.

Gooding Calendar 1 3 7 8 10 13 15 22 If you haven't done so already, take a drive around the City of Buhl. We have growth happening everywhere. This month we will discuss the Harvest Hills Subdivision just to the east of Fair Avenue. A lot of people in Buhl know this was land owned by Shelby Williams. You'll notice that Phases 1 and 2 are coming along nicely with placement of infrastructure by Extreme Excavation. The plan for Phases 1 and 2 at this time are 7 duplexes, 8 four-plexes, and between 47-50 single-family homes. Another big event for Buhl is the Summer Service Program scheduled on June 11 for a portion of 14th Avenue North. This is exciting for those residents of 14th Avenue that are willing to participate with the organization. We need more lifeguards for the city pool. If you know anyone that would be interested in working this summer for the city and would be interested in the mandatory training necessary to become a lifeguard, please have them call 208.543.5650. Our city pool is an asset to the community, but in order to have it open and offer swimming lessons, we must have lifeguards.

We are opposed to judgmental Christianity that holds to truth without compassion & righteousness without humility. We all prayerfully encourage each other to listen when others speak, keep it confidential, & work on our own issues. Our hearts break for all who are hurting, grieving, struggling, confused, oppressed, depressed, isolated, lonely, stuck in life behaviors that steal their joy, & don't know what hospital for our souls to turn to for safe & encouraging support. All are welcome to join us as we all continue learn "One Day at a Time" how to receive God's Restoration and Freedom.

CANDIDATE INFORMATION

Idaho needs real conservative leadership. That is why I am running for State Representative. I will ensure our values are fought for and protected. I am a pro-life, nd pro 2 Amendment, fiscal conservative. My family has multi-generational roots in Idaho. Idaho is our home and we love our community. Over the years, I have served in various capacities helping to be part of the solution for a strong, family-oriented, conservative community. My degrees are in education. I homeschooled our two daughters and taught English classes and senior seminars for homeschooling students here for many years. Today, I serve as the Kimberly School District Foundation President. My experiences in public and private education help guide my vision for strong public education with innovation and alternatives. I will work to ensure that children, parents and teachers feel supported. For more than 12 years, I have been involved with the local Twin Falls County Republicans and our State Republican Party. I’ve worked on many campaigns, knocking doors and planning events to elect conservative Republicans. Now is the time for me to run for office myself and take the values I cherish, and that resonate with Idahoans, to the Capitol. While Idaho is a beacon of conservative politics in the United States, we must take nothing for granted. I am committed to a strong conservative agenda, representing the experiences and ideals of Magic Valley residents. Together, we will preserve Idaho’s foundation of strong values, low regulation, and patriotism.

Protecting Idaho from federal overreach, growing government, and overtaxing (which our current elected officials have been overtly complicit in) are my main priorities. I will also protect and defend all life, from conception to grave, our 2nd Amendment, Idahoan’s medical freedom, our children's education, parental rights, property, and water rights. This political journey began in 2016 when I decided I needed to be more informed and engaged in keeping our liberties and freedoms. I had always voted as a Republican, voting “R” (like so many do) and trusting that the name attached was a conservative, constitutional Republican. Then I learned their votes did not line up with what I believed that “R” implied. Republicans continued to grow government and increase spending, both of which would greatly affect the next generation. That is why I am asking you to send me to Boise. Give me a chance to fight and defend the best state in the Union: IDAHO! To learn more about me, go to glenneda.com.

I am Ed Humphreys and I'm running for governor of the great state of Idaho! My candidacy represents a bold new approach. Career politicians are ruining our country. Let’s do something different and bring fresh ideas into a government mired in mediocrity. We need a plan that offers real solutions to problems in education, housing, the labor force, and infrastructure. Having grown up in an immigrant family, whose mother and brother fled communism in Eastern Europe, I grew up on the ‘other side of the tracks.’ I’ve lived in poverty, worked blue Glenneda Zuiderveld Candidate for State Senate District collar jobs in the oilfield and construction, finished college, became a Financial Advisor, and 24. completed a Masters in Finance.

13 I’m Creighton Knight candidate for Idaho House 24B. I am a lifelong conservative Republican. I most recently served as a School Board member and Treasurer of Xavier Public Charter Schools. Our school remained fully open during COVID. My career has centered around agriculture and manufacturing. I have a bachelor’s degree in Economics, and a master’s degree in Business Administration. My family and I operate the Apple Barn Event Center and orchard in Filer. I have served as a YMCA youth football coach, church volunteer, 4H parent, and School Board member. I am running to give voters a candidate who more closely shares their values. My opponent Steven Miller is a former legislator who voted in 2017 with Democrats to keep the grocery tax. In 2018 he again voted with Democrats against a bill lowering income tax rates. He voted to expand Medicaid in 2018. His record is full of taxing and spending. Steven Miller lost his re-election bid in 2018. By contrast, I’m running to lower taxes and find innovative solutions for citizens, not grow the size of government. I am pro-gun, pro-life and a fiscal conservative. I’m concerned about the excessive welfare spending by legislators. We must instead invest in water resources to protect our agriculture industry upon which thousands of jobs rely. I support wise investments in education so that our kids can have good job opportunities here in Idaho. If you want a solid conservative Republican representing you in Boise, then I ask for your vote. www.Knight4Idaho.com Hi, I’m Steve Miller, Republican candidate for the Idaho House of Representatives in Legislative District 24 Seat B. Our new district is comprised of Rural Twin Falls, Gooding and Camas Counties. My family has been in Idaho since 1888 and passed on the Idaho values of hard work, self-reliance, and self-responsibility to each generation. My wife, Cheryl Sandy, is a Hagerman girl with deep roots in Idaho. Our State and our Nation were built on the values of Faith, Family and Freedom. I believe the greatest danger to these values come from the Biden administration’s federal govern-

ment. I am committed to exert Idaho’s Sovereignty in defending the Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness of Idahoans against government overreach. Let me tell you a little about myself. I manage the farm operations of our family farm and ranch growing organic hay and grain. I served on Camas County P&Z, as County Commissioner and in the Idaho House of Representatives for 6 years. I served on JFAC (Joint Finance & Appropriations), Agricultural Affairs, and Resources & Conservation Committees. Our most important challenges are keeping a healthy economy and a providing a solid education for our children that prepares them for life, work, and further education. I believe experience is important. There is a big difference between my opponent who has “ideas” for legislation and myself who has written and passed legislation. I have proven experience as a conservative Legislator who carefully listens and gets things done. The May 17 primary will determine who wins our election. No democrat has filed for this race. In the past, primaries have had a notoriously low turn-out, so it is imperative that our Republican friends and neighbors get out and vote “Steve Miller” on May 17. Senator Jim Patrick. I am a leader not a follower but; I do listen to my constituents. I am committed to support education k through carrier. I am a strong supporter of business and agriculture. Natural resources, fish to mines is important to all of us. I will work to protect our water and preserve our traditional values. Strong families are the basis of our country. I have been married for over 50 years and we ran a successful farm for most of these years. I am Senator Jim Patrick and am excited about the new district 24. I look forward to meeting you since we are just finishing the legislative session I will have time

Pete’s Patch: What the Chinese did for the railroad was significant to the completion of the project. It was estimated that 11,000 Chinese, brought by the ship loads from Peking, Canton, and Hong Kong where they worked for 30 dollars a month for the Central and Union Pacific Railroads. When the lines were joined at Promontory, Utah in 1869 they were suddenly out of work so many flocked to the other railroads and mines of Idaho. In the next months article we will talk about how the Chinese affected the Hagerman Valley and surrounding area after completion of the railroad project. About 1 mile west of Bliss on Hwy 30 before the railroad crossing, start looking south you will see where the old rodeo grounds used to be. You will have to park and walk to find the graveyard, it looms from a rocky point looking over the desert. Here lies 16 Chinese men that were killed in a dynamite explosion while building the railroad in 1883. Range fires destroyed the original picket fence that surrounded the graveyard and all grave markers. Since then they have been replaced by a barbed wire fence and 6 white crosses that still marks the Chinese graveyard. In the next months article we will talk about how the Chinese affected the Hagerman Valley and surrounding area after completion of the railroad project. * Copyright by the Gooding County Idaho Historical Book Committee Gooding Idaho 1989. Pete's Patch Hats Off to David Landrum, Mark Henslee and Caleb Johnson and the LDS Young Men's Group for helping me clean up the big mess in my back yard. Till Next time, Pete.

23 I write to express my support for Steve Miller, Republican candidate for the Idaho Legislature District 24B. Steve has a long and distinguished record of Public Service. Steve was a Camas County Commissioner for 6 years; he has been on the Camas Soil Conservation Board of Supervisors for 44 years. During those 44 years he served 2 years as President of the Idaho Association of Conservation Districts and 2 years at Secretary/Treasurer of the National Association of Conservation Districts. In addition, Steve was on the Camas County Zoning and Planning Board for 17 years and he has served in the Idaho House of Representatives for six years. Steve has dedicated his life to Public Service, is well versed on the issues facing rural Idaho and will be an excellent representative for District 24B in the Idaho Legislature. I have met Steve on multiple occasions over the past several years and have discussed land and water issues with him that are central to rural Idaho’s economic and social future. His knowledge and understanding of potential future action by both the State and Federal governments that could result in profound negative changes to our economy is a great asset for us. I know him to be a man of excellent character and integrity. Steve’s opponent in the primary, Mr. Knight, is running a negative campaign and is not being completely honest with the public. I recently attended a public forum in which one citizen asked Mr. Knight if the company he works for packages Cannabis for retail sale. He belittled this person and stated the obvious that Cannabis, or Marijuana, is illegal in Idaho and that they did not package Cannabis. He left the impression that associating his company with the Cannabis industry was misinformed. In fact, Mr. Knight is the Director of Research and Product Development at N2 Packaging Systems who’s tag line is “The sustainable cannabis packaging company”. N2 says that they are “the trusted premium packaging provider to some of the most progressive cannabis producers and brands in the United States…” While N2’s business is not illegal in Idaho, I am left wondering why Mr. Knight felt compelled to hide the nature of the business he works for. Mr. Knight also highlights his services on the Board of Directors at Xavier Charter School in Twin Falls, but he fails to mention is that he was removed from the Board by unanimous vote during the Board’s Executive Session on August 25, 2021 without cause after a little more than one year of service. Why would the Board do this? Could it be that his presence on the Board was disruptive and nonproductive? This is Mr. Knights lone example of Public Service. The question before the voters is which of the two candidates has the experience and integrity to represent the citizens of District 24B in the State Legislature. The choice is clear, Steve Miller has demonstrated his excellent character and integrity during his entire life of Public Service. Vote for Steve Miller District 24B on May 17.
