Caribou Medical Center donates to the athletic program

At the most recent city council meeting, Caribou Medical Center presented $2000 to the Recreation Department’s Rec League program, which will be used to help run the program and defray costs. The Medical Center is a community-centered facility, which means that one of its most important missions is to help support the surrounding area in as many ways as possible over the course of a year. COO Dillon Liechty was raised in Soda Springs, and spent many happy years participating in the rec league programs. He sees the donation as something he is happy to be able to facilitate.

“I played on those same field when I was a kid, and I know it’s an important thing for a lot of kids out there,” he says. The CMC has been donating to the program for many years, but this year the City Council felt that it should be made more public than in the past.

Caribou Medical Center is a 501 c3 organization, and serves a “critical access” function, rather than a for-profit one.

“We’re interwoven within the community,” Liechty says. “We really want to be a part of what’s going on here, and we’re always open to these kinds of things that help to support the area and make people’s lives better here.”

Other than the rec department donation, which the Medical Center has been making on a yearly basis for almost the last decade, CMC has also contributed to many other projects across the county, including digital signs for schools, seating at sports venues, ice machines and water fountains, and more. They are a level sponsor of the Soda Springs School District.

In addition to its outward facing outreach efforts, the Medical Center is working to promote its range of services which are available to Caribou County residents, some of which may not be on people’s radars. In addition to the standard range of emergency services and specialists one expects to find at a Trauma IV hospital facility, the Medical Center also provides access to in-house chemotherapy, pain management, telehealth counseling, and many others.

The community health needs assessment conducted on behalf of the hospital found that the biggest needs in the community were in the areas of Pain Management, Chronic Disease Care, and Mental Health services. The Medical Center has programs in place or on the way to directly add to its services in each of those areas, as well as others on the list.

Telehealth counseling has been a growing need, especially in the area of mental health and wellness. CMC was actually a pilot program for the University of Utah’s telehealth program, and benefits from the fiber optic lines that allow for secure and fast internet connectivity. The medical center has added a number of new providers in various departments, and continues to add more. The Enterprise will try to keep the community apprised of new arrivals and services offered by CMC in the future.

One of the things Liechty would like to make sure the community is aware of right now, however, is that

Loosle welcomed as CEO of Caribou Medical Center

Between the final issue of the Caribou County Sun and the first issue of the Enterprise, a number of things occurred that were missed in terms of coverage. One of them was the introduction of the new Medical Center CEO Kent Loosle. Loosle, who was briefly introduced in the Enterprise concerning the Leaders are Readers Kindness Week article several weeks ago, has been with the Medical Center since November of last year. In his first half year with the hospital, Loosle has pursued the hospital’s mission of being focused on the community and working to meet its needs. One of the projects undertaken in that time is an assessment

of the surrounding area, and the resource and service needs seen as important in the community. Loosle is committed to expanding what is available at the center, and to promoting awareness of the services already in place. The original announcement of his hiring, which would have been printed in the very next issue of the Sun, is reprinted below. "Caribou Medical Center is excited to announce the upcoming arrival of our Chief Executive Officer, Kent Loosle. He joined the Caribou Medical Center Team on Wednesday, November 1, 2023. Kent brings over 25 years of ex-

At least 139 killed in Russian concert attack

The investigation into an attack on a music concert in Russia has been complicated by President Vladimir Putin’s insistence that Ukraine and western backers were responsible for the attack. Radical Islamic groups in the country have claimed credit for the attack, releasing videos from the event that seem to have come from the perpetrators. The group is connected to ISIS, and has threatened just such an attack for several years. Putin eventually acknowledged that there is significant evidence of the terrorist group’s involvement, but still maintains that Ukraine is somehow involved. Outside observers speculate that the damage to Putin’s image as a “protector” of the country is behind his blaming of Ukraine, which has consumed the attention of Russian’s military intelligence services.

Kate Middleton announces cancer diagnosis

After days of feverish speculation about the location and condition of the Princess of Wales, she revealed that she was undergoing treatment for cancer following a January surgery that had resulted in the diagnosis. Middleton is not revealing the specific nature of the cancer she is being treated for, and the family has emphasized that she deserves a reasonable amount of privacy as she deals with the medical situation. The same approach was taken by King Charles, who was also recently diagnosed with an undisclosed cancer and is undergoing treatment as well. The situation has generated apologies from a number of media figures who promoted conspiracy theories about Middleton in the wake of a photoshopped image. It has also driven record numbers of visitors to UK cancer information websites.

March Madness underway

After two crazy rounds of March Madness action, the men’s NCAA tournament is set for Thursday’s Sweet 16. Following the departure of BYU, Boise State, Oregon, USU, WSU, and Colorado, the only real teams of local interest left are Gonzaga and the Mountain West’s San Diego State. BYU lost to Duquesne in a 71-67 upset in the first round, while BSU lost to Colorado on the first day of the tournament in the “First Four” round. On the Women’s side, the University of Utah went down to Gonzaga 66-77 to end their run, and a great season.

Softball and Baseball signup underway

Registration forms for city recreation league baseball and softball teams are being taken both online and at the City office until Friday, April 5. Softball registration costs $30 for residents and $50 for non-residents, and will host teams in the 10U (3rd and 4th grades for the 2024-2025 school year) and 12U (5th and 6th grades for the 2024-2025 school year). Baseball registration has the same cost, and will field teams 10 and under (as of 4/30), 12 or Under (as of 4/30), and 14 and under (as of 4/30). Programs are available to assist with registration fees for those who need them. A print form can be obtained from city hall, or printed from sodapsringsid.com/recreation and turned in at the building. Forms can also be completed entirely online.

Incubator program at Extension Office

Last week, community volunteer Katie Van Dyke presented a class titled “From Egg to Chick” at the Extension Office. The program allows participants to check out incubators from the Extension Office for use in hatching chicks. The process will take roughly 21 days from incubation to hatching, and the incubators will then be readied for use by another group. The incubators were donated by Nutrien.

During the classes Sara Smith, 4-H Assistant Coordinator and Van Dyke gave interested kids and families information about the proper raising of chicks, and encouraged them in the pursuit of poultry production. The animals can be used for egg production, and because the program is through the Extension, they can also be entered into the poultry shows at the fair, along with a record book of the process of taking them from egg to live bird.

During last week’s class, Van Dyke demonstrated the process of candling the developing eggs. Candling refers to using a light source to see the silhouette of the bird inside the egg. The viability of the animals can be

seen as movement inside the egg at later stages of development. “My kids weren’t that excited about chickens,” Van Dyke said. “But when they got to see them move inside there, everything changed.”

Extension Office seeks input from County residents

Kari Ure is new to the Caribou County Extension Office, and is looking to gather opinions about the needs of the county. Ure created a survey, which was distributed to the schools and city governments within the county, but she could still use more responses to the interest and opinion survey. As an Extension Educator, she will be deciding what kinds of classes and programs to offer to residents in the coming months.

Kari grew up in Cache Valley, and worked with the Extension program in Utah for almost three years before moving to Caribou County. Her focus is Family and Consumer Science programs for adults and youth/4-H. She has taught classes in the past on such subjects as: Financial literacy, Healthy eating, Diabetes Cooking Classes, Family Meal planning, Tai Chi, anti-Vaping education classes, Story Trails (set up in parks),

Freeze Drying, Mental Wellness activities such as creativity, physical activity, music, books clubs, and more.

Kari is looking for county residents to provide some input on the kinds of activities the county would benefit from, what kinds of resources are available, and possible methods/ venues the programming could best accommodate local needs.

A link to the survey can be found at https://tinyurl.com/7rjzvydp or by scanning the included QR code.

Kari is also seeking to organize an advisory committee to discuss programming needs within the county. If you are interested in serving on the committee, or would like to be added to a notification email list about upcoming classes and events, email her at kure@uidaho.edu.

War on Weeds—weeds are everybody’s problem

THE ISSUE: Giant knotweed

Giant knotweed (polygonum sachalinense) is a semi-woody shrublike perennial that is native to Asia. It was originally introduced into the U.S. as an ornamental, but it has proven to be an extremely aggressive weed. It invades moist soils in disturbed wetland and riparian areas.

Giant knotweed can grow up to 15 ft. tall, allowing it to shade out beneficial native species. Leaves are broad, ovate, and heart-shaped, growing up to 12 inches long. Stems are hollow and woody. Stems are typically red early in the growing season and turn brown in the fall. This plant produces long rhizomes (up to 18 ft. long), new shoots can emerge at nodes on rhizomes, allowing this plant to spread quickly. It produces small, compact, greenish-white flowers that form in clusters. Giant knotweed is capable of reproducing from seed and rhizomes, making it very prolific.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Options:

• Prevention— Learn to identify and do not transport seed or unknown plant material.

• Cultural— Establish a stand of desirable plants. Bare ground is much more susceptible to weed infestations than ground that is covered with healthy plants.

• Mechanical— Tillage, digging, mowing, or cutting are not effective control options for giant knotweed; these activities can increase the stand density. Each rhizome that is cut has the potential to become a new plant!

• Chemical— Glyphosate is the best control option available for this weed. Apply to foliage in the fall (Augustfirst killing frost). Applying herbicides to perennials in the fall, pulls the herbicide down into the root system, killing the whole plant, not just the foliage. Always read and follow herbicide label directions.

As the kids gathered around the candle (a strong LED light), they could be overheard reacting to exactly that sight, and becoming visibly excited about the prospect of raising their own chicks.

Chickens are typically seen as a great first animal project for 4-H members, as they are less resource-heavy than larger livestock but provide a similar experience of care and raising. Proper raising of chickens and other birds also involves attention to schedules, health and feeding protocols, and disease management. Based on the number of attendees at the incubator class, there should be quite a few entries in the category this year, which is something Office Administrator Rachel Hamilton is always excited to see. “It should be a great year this year—we’ve got a lot going on,” she says.

The day camp is just one of the many ongoing activities sponsored and supported by the office. As the spring fully sets in and the fair season inevitably begins, classes and groups will begin meeting frequently in preparation for the various shows, contests, and projects 4-H members will be undertaking.

Anyone interested in joining the 4-H program can contact Lisa Barfuss at the office at (208) 547-3205.

Della Watkins Brown

October 31, 1930 - March 21, 2024

Della Watkins Brown passed away peacefully in Twin Falls, Idaho on March 21, 2024, surrounded by family. She was 93.

Della was born in Conda, Idaho on October 31st, 1930, to Thomas Henry and Jennie McMurray Watkins. She was the youngest of eight children. She spent her childhood in Conda and then moved to Twin Falls at the beginning of her senior year in high school.

Della met her sweetheart, Ralph Lynn Brown, when she was in high school and then, after a couple years of a long-distance romance, they were married in the Logan Temple on May 16, 1950. They made their home in Soda Springs, Idaho, where they raised their four children, Jerry, Janet, Renee and Melanie.

Della worked as a telephone operator for a few years before deciding to stay at home with her children. She then worked alongside Ralph on their farm driving tractor and grain trucks, as well as taking food to the field to feed the crew.

Della enjoyed volunteering and was a Caribou County volunteer EMT. She also served for many years on the hospital auxiliaryboard, with a couple of those years as its president. She found great joy in serving others and could often be found helping or taking food to those in need.

Della was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and had a deep and abiding testimony in her Savior Jesus Christ. She held many church callings, including stake Primary president and ward Relief Society president.

She was an avid reader, having read hundreds of books throughout her life. She loved to walk and exercise, and in her younger years could be seen walking the Bailey Creek Road anytime that the weather permitted. She loved to cook, especially for her family. She loved collecting recipes

and trying new dishes. Many wonderful meals were served at her table. Without question, her family was her greatest joy in life, and she spent countless hours serving them and always putting family first. She was a loving wife, a kind and loving mother, and a doting grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be missed beyond measure.

She is survived by her children, Jerry (Robyn) Brown, Renee (Wade) Harris and Melanie (Shawn) Athay, as well as fifteen grandchildren and their spouses, and fifty-six great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings, Elzo Watkins, Ruby Rose, Willard Watkins, Verda Jenkins, Darrell Watkins, Marvin Watkins, Lynn Watkins, her husband Ralph, her daughter Janet Cellan, and son-in-law Sid Cellan.

“Lucky Stiff” musical will be performed at Grace HS

Submitted by Eli Hubbard

Grace High School would like to announce its latest musical coming to you this April. This year's musical is called "Lucky Stiff". You may not have heard of this one, but let me assure you it is hilarious. The play follows a single, pathetic shoe salesman named Harry Witherspoon who just can't seem to catch a break in life. No girls likes him, and he hates his job with a passion. But in a sudden turn of luck, Harry finds out his dead uncle has left him an inheritance of 6

million dollars! But there is a catch, Harry must take his dead uncle on vacation with him to Monte Carlo, passing him off as living to anyone he meets! Watch with joy as Harry struggles to keep a low profile while being chased by a crazy woman, her optometrist brother and a representative of a dog charity who all want the money. This show has it all. Wonderful dancing, great music, and lots of laughs. Put it on your calendars.

April 26th, 27th and 29th at the Gem Valley performing arts center. We will see you there.

GRACE CITY COUNCIL 3/6

Adapted from the official minutes taken by County Clerk Shelley Reeves

After approving the minutes and bills in the amount of $36,147.19 and payroll of $10,451.48 the regular meeting of the Grace City Council was held.

Fire Chief Peck

Fire Chief Curtis Peck reported that the fire department escorted the championship wrestlers and girls’ basketball teams through the town. He also reported that there had been a house fire in town. 9 firemen responded. The house was a complete loss, but Chief Peck helped the homeowners contact the Red Cross, and there have been many people in the community donating clothing, food, and money to help. Chief Peck also reported that the insurance rating process had begun, and they would be here in person

in March or April.

Zoning Update

Zoning Commission Member Mark Crabb gave a follow-up report on the cars at Kelly Anderson’s property in the industrial zone. Most the vehicles have been removed from the property.

Kent Loosle, Caribour Medical Center

Kent Loosle, CEO of the Caribou Medical Center spoke to the council with an update on some changes coming to the hospital. He reported that there were 5 new physicians available to patients at CMC. One is a back pain specialist who will be available once a week. There is also a urologist that the center is sharing with Franklin County Medical Center, and a Family Practice/OB that will be coming in August. He stated

that compared to all the medical facilities close by, according to patient surveys, CMC ranked highest and was tied with Bear Lake hospital in nursing. He stated that 33 people who live in Grace work at CMC. He also reported that they had acquired a new robotic surgery machine that is used for urology, gynecology, and general surgery procedures. He stated that it shortens healing time and is easier on patients. He stated that a small hospital is lucky to have it, and to have physicians with the skills to use it. Councilmember Toone asked him to talk about Dr. Jensen, who works in the Emergency Room. Mr. Loosle explained that Dr. Jensen is double board certified in emergency medicine and internal medicine. Mr. Loosle stated that there have been questions about building a new hospital. He said that right now they are trying to build services and

senator's chairs. Maleah made it to the top 16.” Unlike some sports and activities, state debate is not separated out by school size, so the smallest programs are routinely up against the largest. Having a contingent from Soda Springs represent the school and area so well is a great sign of the success of the program. Congratulations to the debaters from SSHS, and continued success!

see what the volue of demand is before deciding to build a new hospital.

March is Women’s History Month

Put on your Wonder Woman cape and get out your favorite books, movies, slogans and bumper stickers about amazing women! March is Women’s History month! In no way wanting to diminish the historically acknowledged accomplishments of men, March is the month to learn about and celebrate the often dismissed and even unknown contributions of women. It’s been a long journey to obtain the opportunities and recognition afforded to women today, since most all of the world’s developed nations only began to allow full rights and citizenship to women about one hundred years ago.

The legal battle for Women’s Suffrage in the US and Great Britain began in the mid 1800’s when women who were attending an abolitionist convention in London were denied access to the auditorium because they were women. In this moment they realized that their plights were little better than that of the enslaved peoples for whom they were fighting. Indeed, after the Civil War, black men had the right to vote, more or less, but no women did. Women were legally viewed as chattel, like livestock, the property of their husbands or fathers. They could not vote, hold office, own property, seek a divorce, sign legal agreements, etc.

For over seventy years, women around the world worked to obtain the right to vote, with the knowledge that this would afford them a much greater measure of opportunity and equality. They undertook public protests, held parades, used the power of their pens to present their cause in newspapers, and even picketed President Woodrow Wilson’s White House. When arrested for these public displays, they were imprisoned, went on hunger strikes and were force fed. They were threatened with losing custody of their children. Still, they persisted.

After decades of working toward and presenting the suffrage amendment in the USA, it was passed into law in 1920 as the 19th amendment. With this amendment, women became actual citizens, with the rights of citizenship, and they have been steadily gaining in equality ever since.

For those readers under fifty it is difficult to imagine a time when women were not included in all as-

pects of life in the United States. Until the 1940’s, women teachers in many areas of the country had to resign should they decide to marry. Women were told not to even bother to apply in certain college disciplines, a woman minister was generally unheard of, women physicians and scientists were scarce. Before 1972, when Title IX was enacted, there were few, if any, girls’ sporting events taking place between schools. Imagine--no Soda Springs or Bear Lake High School girls basketball, volleyball, softball or track teams!

An Idaho statute gave preferential treatment to men when there was a challenge as to who would handle a legal matter, such as being the executor of a will. This resulted in the case Reed v Reed, and in 1971, the wrongfulness and unconstitutionality of this preferential treatment was argued by lawyer Ruth Bader Ginsburg and subsequently struck down by the US Supreme Court. This was a landmark case stating that a person’s gender could not be used to deny equal rights.

The battle for equality has continued. There are many vocations that traditionally had been out of a woman’s grasp that are now filled with capable women, such as veterinarians, military personnel, physicians, artists, composers, writers, scientists, astronauts, political and religious leaders. And often, they handle these jobs while being caregivers, mothers, wives and homemakers! It is somewhat curious that the United States is one of the few powerful nations of the world which has never elected a woman as head of state!

So, this is the month to learn about astronaut Sally Ride, Native American tribal leader Wilma Mankiller, first female Congressional Representative Jeannette Rankin (4 years before women had the right to vote), President of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, scientist and Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie, Nobel Prize winner and crusader for women’s rights Malala Yousafzai, suffragette Alice Paul, writer Maya Angelou, abolitionist Harriet Tubman, newspaper editor Katharine Graham, writer and scientist Rachel Carson, civil rights activist Dolores Huerta, first female rabbi Regina Jonas. Celebrate these and the multitudes of inspiring women, including many you know personally!

services which are provided by the Medical Center can be utilized in aftercare, even if an initial surgery or diagnosis was made at a different hospital. One clear example is chemotherapy. CMC itself has in-house screening services for cancer diagnoses, and a consulting oncologist for ongoing care, which many people might be aware of. However, fewer people might be aware that CMC has a staff of certified chemotherapy nurses and an in-house mixing pharmacy, which means that ongoing chemotherapy treatment can be done right in Caribou County. Oftentimes, hospitals where an original diagnosis is made will set up treatment schedules at their own facilities, regardless of where the patient may live. For many patients, it is simply a matter of paperwork to have those ongoing services moved to the Medical Center. Rather than driving to Logan or Pocatello for treatment, patients can instead schedule chemo sessions right in town, which ultimately puts a lot less strain on the whole process.

In addition to chemotherapy, CMC is also able to provide pain management services, orthopedics, sports medicine, OBGYN services including deliveries, Industrial screening, Prenatal classes, “swing beds” for acute and skilled nursing care, chronic disease management, mental health services, sleep studies, and much more. CMC is a partner with Medicare and Medicaid programs, and

Dillon Liechty has been working at the Caribou Medical Center for around 8 years. After growing up in Soda Springs and graudating from SSHS, Liechty went on to receive a degree in Political Science and an MBA in Human Resources. After working for BP Oil for several years, Liechty was drawn home like so many others, and began his new career in hospital management and administration.

“I like this a lot better. It’s great to be working in a place where you’re helping people in a way that is really significant and meaningful to them. Working in a community hospital makes you a part of something important,” he says.

The hospital is expanding the kinds of technology and equipment it provides to its patients. One amazing purchase is a “DaVinci robotic surgery armature,” which allows for precise surgery using a device to help facilitate delicate surgeries in ways that greatly reduce recovery times and surgical scars. “At first, it looks like a science fiction thing,” Liechty says. “But it’s an amazing surgical aid.” A number of other technological innovations are in the future for the center, which is seeking every day to be as responsive to community needs as possible. The Caribou Medical Center can be directly contacted at (208) 547-3341 for information about any of its services, or to schedule consultations.

A majestic bird of prey, Bald Eagles tend to be lazy and prefer to scavenger easy roadkill. Ben Franklin dissuaded naming this bird a representative of our country, calling it a bird of bad moral character. They often watch and wait as other birds and animals kill their prey, then swoop in to steal from them. They are frequently found perched on the telephone poles on Old Hwy 30 between the Hwy 30 turn off and Bancroft. Small flocks of Ravens circle around them, waiting their turn for leftovers. Whether a bird of majesty, or a thief, Bald Eagles give witness to the natural beauty of our county. Photo taken on Old Hwy 30 enroute to Bancroft.

SODA SPRINGS CITY COUNCIL

church phone network was used to inform citizens.

Ender’s

need to

used to develop the community. Her original idea was to build shade covering for the city park, but the bid was considerably higher than the grant’s $5,000. Mrs Burns asked for suggestion from the Council about where the money might be spent if awarded. The Council recommended she speak with Director Hansen about options. Laura Lind is also applying for a grant through the Idaho Wish Foundation for the City Park. Councilmember Gritton suggested the grant money be used to develop the gun range, though Burns suggested that might fall outside the purview of the grant. Engineer Skinner will write the letter of support.

Preparedness Project—Ron

Meyer

Mr. Meyer provided information about an emergency preparedness project he is working on with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Meyer will be creating a series of 5 to 15 minute videos regarding emergency response topics. He would like to address a variety of different things, from active shooters to gardening. He hopes to enlist the assistance of law enforcement to teach citizens how to react in emergency situations. Mayor Robinson stated that he liked the idea. President Hart gave an example of a power outage years ago in the county where the

Scott Flippence spoke about the Ender’s building, and his concerns that the city is subsidizing the operation. Flippence owns the Caribou Lodge and apartments in town and does not want to compete with Ender’s. Councilmember Ryan Carpenter stated that since Ender’s is a city-owned asset, the arrangement is not a subsidy. The tenant currently pays $3500/mo in rent, which accounts for utilities plus 30%, and will likely double for the next year. O’Dell Christman stated that he appreciated the city trying to preserve the history of Soda Springs through the building, though he acknowledges it is a heavy weight for the city to carry. He stated that he approves of the city’s arrangement with Ender’s, and that a tenant helps defray the costs.

Appointments

Dean Stultzman with Business iPhone Specialists gave a cost analysis to the city for a switch from IDEACOM. He stated that their phone system would include more features, better support, and a lower cost. The contract would be a lease-to-own arrangement, and there would be zero costs for start up. The council agreed to have city staff take a look at the possible contract.

Austin E. Robinson asked the city for a donation to the Distinguished Young Women organization. All ticket sales and donations go directly to the participants. Councilmember Gritton asked whether this donation would come from taxes, and Councilmember Hart clarified that it would

come from power fees. A motion to give the Lions Club $550 for DYW was approved.

Unfinished Business

Engineer Skinner informed the council that Maverik has its general contractor on site. Additionally, the PRV study is still being reviewed and snow plows have been built. Director Squires clarified that because it is not yet budgeted, the lift station project is on the list.

Engineer Skinner also shared a “disadvantaged community map.” He has met with the Forest Service and Hispanic Foundation and was told these organizations will not release funds for projects located outside that zone. A half million dollars are available to the city, if it can be used in the approved areas.

The City received a draft agreement from Nutrien for the transfer of land from Nutrien to the City. Nutrien will assist over the next three years with the maintenance of the property and provide endowment money for upkeep. The deal will potentially close by the end of March. The contract is for 600 acres, with 200 of them under a conservation easement.

Attorney Haney received a copy of the Memorandum of Understanding with the SS School District and said it looks similar to the 2022 contract. Attorney Haney suggested that Chief Shaw, Attorney Doug Wood, and Sheriff Mabey work together to clarify some elements of the contract before it is signed.

Attorney Haney stated that junk notices will be mailed to community members to encourage spring cleaning. Letters will be sent asking residents and commercial businesses to clean their property.

GRACE CITY COUNCIL 3/6

bids for a new auditor. Quest CPAs bid $10,000 plus $2,300 for a single audit if over $750,000 was spent in federal funds, and Poulsen, VanLeuven & Catmull bid $17,000 to $18,000 for a single audit. Councilmember Toone moved to approve Quest CPAs as the auditor for the project. The motion was approved.

Spring Clean-up

Spring clean-up was discussed by the council. The landfill has made some changes. They won’t allow the City of Grace to dump for free for a second week, since none of the other cities in the county have a two-week spring cleanup. The city can still hold a two-week spring cleanup, but the second week of dumping will be charged to the city. The city will also need to have citizens who borrow the truck or have the city pick up large

items with freon in the, sign a release form stating that they are allowing the city to dump their stuff, though there may be a change which they will agree to pay. They will also be required to sort trash, or they will be charged a fee. After discussion, it was decided to change the clean-up plan to a single week. The motion passed.

Sheriff

A contract with the sheriff’s office was discussed. The sheriff can’t enforce city codes, but it willing to help the city enforce anything that is related to a state statute. Sheriff Mabey was not in attendance, so a contract will need to be discussed at a future meeting.

Attorney contract

Attorney Doug Wood sent the city a contract allowing him to do criminal prosecutions for the city. Mayor Barthlome explained to the council

that after talking with Attorney Wood, he explained to her that the city had a civil contract with him and had never needed a criminal contract in the 11 years he had been the attorney. He explained that any attorney working for the city would need both a civil and criminal contract in order to prosecute a criminal offense, but that the city has been able to work out solutions to most problems before they get to the point where criminal prosecution is necessary. Mayor Barthlome suggested that the city sign a contract with Attorney Wood and give him a chance to sort out the ongoing problem in the city regarding storage containers. The contract that Wood sent left the amount per hour blank, allowing the City Council to determine the rate. The Council decided that $250/ hr would be fair. A motion to approve the criminal prosecutor contract was approved.

Mr. Skinner is working on getting the City’s old transformer shipped to South Dakota. The company is ready, but waiting for a break in the weather.

Mr. Skinner informed the council about an applicated he submitted for water rights to the Soda Creek area. Ideally, the City will set up pumps behind the county shop to provide water to the cemetery. Previously, Nutrien did not apply for all water rights in the area, so once the change of ownership is complete, the city will apply for the remaining water rights.

Councilmember Hart discussed water conservation. He mentioned that he would like to develop a communication plan to encourage the community to be more diligent about water usage.

Councilmember Worthington raised the issue of potentially undertaking a survey about public opinions about the future of the Ender’s building. The council discussed the feasibility and possibility of such a survey, and the importance of keeping the public aware of issues related to the city property. The discussion was ultimately tabled for re-examination during a later meeting.

Service missionaries with the LDS church reached out to the city looking for volunteer options. Councilmember Hart will look into the options.

Councilmember Gritton informed the council that Bayer was seeking to donate office furniture to the city for use at city hall. A motion to accept the donation passed. The Council then entered executive session.

Reports

Councilmember Toone moved to approve the personnel policy change which would allow the City Superintendent to earn comp time at time and a half rate, rather than hour for hour. The motion passed.

Superintendent Crookston reported that they are working on getting the sweeper ready for spring. The clarifier froze up and they are getting it defrosted. There is a free lead/copper training in Pocatello from the Department of Environmental Quality on April 16 that Superintendent Crookston would like to take. The employees have been revamping the shop and need a new welding table, which would need to be approved at the next meeting.

A discussion about snow removal on Main Street was tabled without a solution being reached.

LOOKING BACK AT PAGES FROM THE PAST

5 Years ago, 2019

The Bureau of Land Management has begun offering incentives to encourage qualified people to adopt one or more wild horses and burros removed from public lands. The program is part of an effort to confront the growing overpopulation of wild horses and burros on rangelands and in holding facilities which cost taxpayers around $50 million a year to maintain. In 2018, 81,950 animals were estimated to be in existence on public lands. The program allows the animals to be adopted for a number of applications, and they are often preferred by mounted public officials. The horses can also be adopted as part of 4-H training programs, after which they are sold during public auctions.

A study released by HireAHelper claimed that Idaho had the highest net growth in the number of people who had moved in the state, at 84.38%. The data was not broken down specifically in terms of why the movement had occurred, but did find that the growth was composed of a portion of moves into the state, as well as a larger number of moves within the state, with the highest number coming from moves of less than 50 miles away. The data was gathered from a variety of sources, in addition to professional moving companies. Rural to urban movement, as well as relocation for easier commuting are possible explanations.

House Bill 122 was headed for a vote. The bill would end criminal penalties for agricultural/industrial hemp products, as well as CBD containing medicinal products.

BANCROFT CITY COUNCIL REPORT– FEBRUARY

Adapted from the official minutes taken by City Clerk Debbie Swensen.

MR&E

Nekelle Smith does billing for MR&E. She has been reviewing the contract between the city and MR&E looking at the CPI's for increases. The contract states that rates are determined by combining two (2) years CPI rates. This would end up being quite a substantial increase of approximately $5.00 a month. Residential cans would go from $13.00 a month to $18.74. MR&E realizes that taking this amount of increase is unreasonable and suggested the city look at changing the contract to allow the two parties to come to an agreement in the event that the CPI is unreasonable. The section addressing the CPI's is 23.4. MR&E presented a proposed rate list chart. The only rate that will have a substantial increase will be the Commercial cans. These cans are the ones used by the businesses, church, and the school. The rate for a second garbage will slightly increase as well. The new rates will be approx. $1.00 to $3.00 in increases. Councilmember Eric Christensen made a motion to accept the new rate increase proposal chart. The motion passed 3-0. Councilmember Eric Christensen made a motion to amend the current contract changing section 23.4 which would allow for both parties to come to a reasonable agreement. The motion passed 3-0.

Mountain West Waterworks

Matt Foster is the regional manager for Mountain West Waterworks. They help municipalities and other water and wastewater districts get their required licensing. They will help maintain or help with full operations. They will help with daily functions or oversee the licensing requirements. Mountain Water Works helps cities to stay in compliance and will work with city engineers to get things back to compliance. Matt asked if the city has any current needs. Mayor Spencer asked if they are willing to help with the schooling end of things. Matt explained that they just hold the licenses and would be willing to provide that service for a monthly fee. They will help the city with training so they can

be self-sustaining. Matt explained that they have a lot of experience and could really help the city.

Councilmember Eiman asked where the city is at with licenses.

Mayor Spencer explained that we have struggled with getting someone trained. The trainings are in Boise but now that we have two employees the city can get them to some training and get some testing done.

The city is contracted with the city of Grace for now. Mayor Spencer expressed that the goal is to get to a point where the city does not have to rely on the Grace license number.

They are more than just license holders; they will help with problem that arise and the consulting end of things.

Council asked how they figure their charges. Matt explained that they would set up a contract based on a monthly retainer for in scope services but anything out of that scope would be additional fees plus travel costs. Mountain West is getting ready to open a branch in Preston so they will be located a little closer soon. Councilmember Nate Eiman asked about the sewer pond needs with needing to re-do the lining. Matt explained that they would be willing to work with the engineers and review project designs etc. The council thanked the reps for presenting their information and for the business cards.

a safety improvement project. Clerk Swensen suggested using the money to replace the rubber bark around and under the playground equipment. The bark has been needing to be replaced for several years. Another project that could be a possibility is updating and adding more electrical outlets at Teuscher Square for the annual lighting event. Blaire asked if the city could use a new swing set or some type of equipment. Maintenance will look at the swings and slide. Councilmember Eric Christensen asked about purchasing a couple picnic tables for the park.

Resolution 24-01 Water & Sewer Connection Fees

Councilmember Eric Christensen made a motion to approve the new specified water & sewer connection fees that were discussed at the last couple of meetings. The motion passed 3-0.

Kennel License Application

Rylie Askew presented a complete kennel license to the city council. Motion passed 3-0.

Sheriff Mabey

Last year in January they had twice as many traffic stops as this year. This past year the Department has done approximately $500,000 in upgrades to the dispatch center. Their dispatch center will be linked with Bannock County by automatic transfer. They are working really close with the sister counties. Last year they brought in almost one million dollars in revenue to help the Sheriff s Department. They found a couple of stolen vehicles here in the city and have had some interesting people come through.

Sheriff Mabey reported that in the past, they haven't been interested in contracting with the city due to the expense that would eat up most of the city's budget. There is also not enough work in the city of Bancroft to pay for a contract.

Sheriff Mabey has a few thoughts on how they might be able to work something out if they can continue the same amount of service they are currently providing.

Personnel Policy Benefits (Observed & Floating Holidays)

Councilmember Jessica Vawser asked what the city attorney said about adding observed and floating holidays to the personnel policy, and if the current sick time etc. is based on eight (8) or (10) hour work days. The attorney advised that most businesses and municipalities are typically using a scale of eight (8) hour work hour for sick time and other benefits offered to employees whether they work 8, 10, or 12 hour shifts.

Council discussed options for adding a few observed holidays to the personnel policy.

After a discussion, Councilmember Eric Christensen made a motion to add the three (3) observed holidays: Christmas Eve, New Year's Eve, Day before Thanksgiving and 2 (two) S-hour floating holidays totaling 16 (sixteen) hours in total. The motion passed 3-0.

Miscellaneous

Councilmember Jessica Vawser asked if the pot holes by the railroad tracks have been addressed. Mayor Spencer stated that the county mix has been outside and is extremely hard. Councilmember Vawser is concerned due to a vehicle getting stuck in the hole. Mayor Spencer will have maintenance get some mix in the back of the truck and park it inside so the holes can be fixed.

Cm Jessica Vawser has read the codes regarding dogs and would like to go through the ordinance as a council. She suggested that residents be required to provide verification of rabies shots, and records showing that the animal is spayed or neutered. Jessica would also like to require residents to fiIl out a Kennel License Application annually instead of every three (3) years. She is concerned that the ordinance allows up to six (6) dogs and that is too many dogs with home lots being so small. Jessica is concerned that dogs are running at large and the city should make sure they have been vaccinated and had rabies shots for safety reasons.

Cardinals Learn Lessons From Tough Weekend

The Cardinal Baseball team traveled to Challis last weekend to play in a four team tournament. In the tournament they would face Idaho City, Salmon, and Challis-Mackay. The Cardinals would be missing several players during the tournament due to it being spring break and players being out of town. Coach Via commented, “We were missing some key guys and that showed both from a pitching and leadership standpoint.” Coach Via also pointed out that the team has yet to be able to practice outside on a real field so these early season games are more akin to practices helping the players get used to what they need to do in games. Despite those setbacks there were some positives during the weekend. Will McCollough, Stoney Irick and Junior Horsley had some good moments on the mound. Coach Via was also pleased with the improvements he is seeing in the hitting from the team. “We are putting the ball in play more consistently versus having so many strikeouts.” Coach Via was impressed with how his players were able to step into some positions that they are not familiar with and handle the extra pressure.

As for the games themselves the Cardinals would go winless in all four games. In the first game the Cardinals would face Idaho City. Early in the game the Cardinals would look good and hold a 2-1 lead at the end of the first inning. With no runs scored in the second Soda would give up two runs in the bottom of the third and trail 3-2 going into the fourth inning. In the top of the fourth the Cardinals would tie things up at three runs each. In the bottom of the fourth the wheels would fall off for the Cardinals as multiple errors and a switch on the mound resulted in Idaho City putting up eight runs and take a commanding 11-3 lead over Soda. The Cardinals would not be able to score in the fifth resulting in their first loss of the weekend.

In game two Soda would face Salm-

on. The story would be much the same as the first game. The Cardinals would battle in a close game early. After three innings the Cardinals were keeping things close and trailed by just one run 3-2. However once again errors would haunt the Cards as they would give up seven runs in the top of the fourth and would now trail 10-2. The Cardinals wouldn't be able to score again and the Savages would add one more run ending the game with a score of 11-2.

On day two of the tournament Soda would take on the co-op team of Challis-Mackay. Once again the Cardinals would work hard to keep things close. After one inning they would trail 1-0 and after two they would be down 3-2. That would be as close as Soda would get in this one as well. Challis would add three more runs over the next two innings building the lead to 6-2. Stoney Irick was a workhorse from the mound in this one throwing over 85 pitches before finally getting relieved. Junior Horsley would finish the game pitching. The final result however was much the same as the day before. The Cardinals would fall 9-3.

In the final game of the tournament Soda would once again face Idaho City. The Cardinals appeared to finally breakthrough in this game as they would hold a solid 7-0 lead in the top of the third. In the bottom of the third errors would once again pile up and the momentum would shift in a major way as Idaho City would score a whopping 14 runs in the bottom of the third. That is all it would take as the final score would be 14-7.

Coach Via and the Cardinals will look to learn from their mistakes and build on the positive things that happened. Trey Dunford was named the Cardinals MVP by the tournament coaches. The Cardinals will be back in action on Wednesday as they travel to Firth before hopefully, weather permitting, hosting their home opener on Friday the 29th against North Fremont.

Senator Harris LEGISLATIVE UPDATE - WEEK 11

Senate Bill 1365 as amended (S1365a) was signed by the Governor this week. S1365a is a bill I worked on with the county coroners that directs the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to give Idahoans an option to add next-of-kin to their driver’s license applications. This data base will help coroners and other law enforcement to easily locate the next-of-kin in cases of a death or some other emergency. As our world is changing and phone books are getting thinner and more people are using cell phones, it is getting more difficult to locate people. Some coroners have reported it has sometimes taken several days and even weeks to find relatives of deceased people. This is a good bill and I appreciate the help of the coroners to get it through the legislative process.

The EMS bill I have been working on passed the Senate this week and was transferred to the House to be heard. Senate Bill 1416 (S1416) is a step in the process to help our Emergency Medical Services around the State. Our EMS personnel and districts throughout Idaho are underfunded and often understaffed. Districts are dealing with burnout and problems with retention and recruitment. S1416 begins the process that will result in eventual funding assistance from the State to help with equipment and support. It is important to note that EMS volunteers will remain volunteers and keep their independence. Every district is different, and we want this to stay that way. S1416 also has intent language that will make EMS an essential service in the State as EMS is always on the scene of an emergency doing what they do best. Hopefully, the bill will get a hearing in the House and move forward.

Western Hemisphere that manufactures elemental phosphorus. Bayer employs about 800 of our friends and neighbors. Their kids attend our schools. Our local hospitals, doctors, and nurses take care of them when they get sick, and they buy groceries and parts for their cars at our local shops. These good people who work at Bayer also volunteer in our communities in their churches and schools. In addition, the product created by Bayer is used by almost every farmer in the State of Idaho and in the United States. The sugar beet industry would cease to exist without pesticides. The other crops in Idaho would also be affected. Without Bayer, we would be forced to get the products we use to grow food from China, placing our food supply and our national security at risk as China and Vietnam are the only other places to get what we need to farm successfully.

boys and the girls would come out on top winning the team scoring. Individually, Tate Williams would lead the boys team followed by freshman Keathen Edwards. On the girls side Kameron Mansfield would not only have the best score for the Lady Grizzlies but would boast the best score of any participant on the day. The Grizzlies made a statement in this opening match showing that they are still the team to beat in Southeast Idaho.

Another issue that I have been working on is some pesticide legislation that has been very interesting. Crazy lawsuits have been in the news the last few years as pesticide companies including Caribou County’s Monsanto (now Bayer) has been sued for billions of dollars. For the past six years, tort litigation centered around pesticide warning labels has created uncertainty about whether U.S. products will continue to be available for our U.S. agriculture industry. The question arises of how much can these companies lose to out-of-control juries before they must shut down and go elsewhere in the world.

The issue locally is the fact that Soda Springs is the only place in the

Doing what we can to help our businesses here in Idaho is important as our communities, economy, and national security depend on whether these businesses can survive. We need to help them focus their resources on sustaining their U.S operations instead of fighting endless litigations. What the legislation we are working on does is address “the failure to warn” as it pertains to pesticide labeling, meaning the existing federal regulations for pesticide labeling should be sufficient as a warning unless a plaintiff can demonstrate in court that they were harmed by the product, or the company acted in a fraudulent way. We will continue to work on this issue as it is very important for not only our communities and the State of Idaho, but for our nation as well! As always, I like to hear from you. Please feel free to contact me at: mharris@senate.idaho.gov. I will do my best to get you answers!!

Rep. Josh Wheeler, District 35

While I hope families back home are enjoying spring break, here in Boise we continue to push forward with the work of the state. Many of the bills we heard this week were related to budgets for various agencies.

The foster care bills I mentioned last week did pass off the House floor this week, and I am encouraged that we will see improved oversight and a better environment for Idaho foster kids and families. I was able to present a bill regarding the Idaho electrical code this week. There was some excellent debate, and it ultimately did pass off the House floor. My international physicians bill needed an amendment on the Senate side, due to a technical change coming from an unrelated piece of legislation. I’m optimistic it will pass, and look forward to seeing it head to the Governor’s desk. Always fascinating to see the ways in which our legislative process plays out, with ample opportunity for correction and improvement.

House bill 596aaS is another example of this process playing out. We will be hearing this bill on the House floor again this week. It seeks to support the many independent pharmacies that serve our communities throughout the state. It puts some guardrails in place regarding

potentially monopolistic and predatory business practices. Another example of how helpful it can be for me to hear from local citizens and small business owners. The committees I serve on have all adjourned subject to the call of the chair. A sign that we are approaching the end of this legislative session. The sun has been shining brightly. While there is still work to do, I can almost taste my families home cooking again, as the work of this year draws to a close.

Grizzlies Attend Unusual Meet

Jody Reeves

On Thursday, March 21st the Grizzlies traveled to Hazelton to take part in the Viking Relays. The Viking Relays is a unique meet with a mixture of traditional and uncommon events. Some of the unique events included a variety of co-ed relay races as well as many individual races that differ in distance than what they do traditionally. The Grizzlies fared well in the meet that featured a total of fifteen teams.

The Grace boys would finish second in the team points while the girls would come in third place. Some of the individual boys' bright spots featured Braden Kimball placing third in the 60 meter race, Adrian Mejia grabbing first in the 600 meters followed by Brock Johnson who placed third in that race. Mejia and Johnson would also place in the top five in the 1500 meters. Landon Moss and Nathanial Smith would each place in the top five in both the 110 meter hurdles and 300 meter hurdles. In the throwing events Trevor Mathews would take third in the shot put and Carson Reeves would take sixth in the discus improving his PR by more than ten feet. In the pole vault Carter Kimball would take second place with Bryant Jensen and Brett Hobbs each earning marks. And finally Jonah Wilkerson would take fifth place in the triple jump.

The girls also had their fair share of accomplishments. Brooklyn Porter and Tessica Jorgensen would place second and third respectively in the 600 meter race. They would be joined by Lily Gilbert in the 1500 meters where Gilbert would get the high mark placing second just edging out Porter who finished third. The Lady Grizzlies would take the top spots in the hurdle races with Bella Eddins taking first in the 100 meters and Kallie Stoddard placing first in the 300 meters. Skyla Cloud would take fifth in the high jump and Bella Eddins would take fourth in the triple jump.

With all of that success the most entertaining events of the day may have been the co-ed relays. In the 4x200 the Grizzlies would take second place despite some trouble with some of the handoffs. In the 4x800 meter race the Grizzlies would find themselves in a distant second place after the first leg of the race. The next two runners would begin to close the gap and when the final runner Adrian Mejia got the baton he was in striking distance. Mejia was able to take the lead coming down the stretch claiming first place for the Grizz. In the most thrilling race of the day, the Swedish relay, once again the Grizzlies would find themselves in a distant second place through much of the race. In the Swedish relay there are six runners to a team running a combination of 100, 200, 300 and 400 meters. When the

final member of the team Bella Eddins received the baton the Grizzlies were trailing by seven seconds with just 400 meters left in the race. In almost every case that would be an insurmountable lead with just one lap to go. Eddins did not easily concede the race however as she ran an amazing leg of the race eventually running down the lead runner with just ten meters left securing first place for Grace. All in all it was a fun and exciting day for the Grace teams. The Grizzlies will next be in action in Firth on the 28th of March.

Team Of The Week: NG Cowboys Track And Field

I scheduled a meeting with Coach Corey Hatch and the North Gem track team for 5:30 to gather information for this story. As I pulled up to the school in Bancroft I found the team patiently awaiting my arrival and they appeared to be done with practice. This caught me off guard a little due to the fact that most athletic teams tend to practice for a full two hours after school. Coach Hatch stated, “I generally pick intensity over duration. We have intense practices and we’re usually done in about an hour.” Intense is a good word to describe Coach Hatch himself. When you look at him and watch him coach he can come off as a little gruff and demanding. He himself would agree with this saying, “I’m hard nosed. I realize everybody gets nicked up. But unless you're going to the doctor or have a bone sticking out of your leg I don't want to hear about it.” In other words, rub some dirt on it and get back to work. If you are able to look past his gruffness you will see a coach that truly cares about his athletes and wants them to see their own potential. “I hope they will all realize that they can achieve something they've personally never done before. I hope they will all set PR’s.”

You will hear the term PR a lot in track. It stands for personal record. For most athletes in track, that is a seasonal or weekly goal to obtain their own personal record. To get PR’s it takes a lot of motivation and willingness to take on the extra work to get there. That is something Coach Hatch knows something about as well. Not only is he the track coach but he is also the head football coach, assistant basketball coach and transportation supervisor for North Gem. It is not uncommon in a small school district for the employees to take on multiple tasks. In Coach Hatch’s case he does so willingly. You can feel how big of a fan of the kids he is and there is no doubt that he is proud to represent the North Gem School. “We have kids that are three sport athletes in their high school careers and I like seeing them get out there and work like that.”

I got to talk to some of those multi sport athletes and asked them how they felt track differed from other sports. Maycen Jenkins responded, “There’s a lot more accountability. Your times follow you.” Isaac Yost added, “Everybody gets their time in the spotlight.” I asked a few of the athletes what their goals for the season are. I was met with answers like “make it to state” and “place at districts.” Others have slightly different motivations. Rustin Hatch responded, “I just want to take some points from Grace and Rockland and get ready for football.”

Track and field is one of the sports that does combine some of the classifications pitting local schools North Gem and Grace against one another at the district meet. Whatever their motivations are one thing is for certain. When it comes to the Cowboy athletes they have had a work ethic and never quit

With the Soda Springs school district’s spring break in full swing the Cardinal track team made the trip to Oakley on Wednesday, March 20th. Despite being low on numbers several Cardinals still made their presence known in the competitive group of ten schools including district rival Aberdeen.

The Lady Cardinals would have a strong showing tying for first place as a team with Murtaugh. The boys would not score as well as a team due to low numbers, however the Cardinal men that did compete did very well. Degan Stoor would lead the Cardinal men placing tenth in the 100 meter sprint with a PR and fourth in the 200 meters. Stoor would also claim the top spot in both the 110 meter hurdles and 300 meter hurdles. Caleb Thompson and Zayden Garbett would also compete in the 100 and 200 meters and Thompson would grab first in the 400 meters.

The Lady Cardinals would be led by Jinettie Garbett in the sprints and Izzy Shelton in the throwing events. Garbett would lead ten different Cardi-

mentality instilled in them by Coach Hatch. Coach Hatch stated, “The community needs to know that we’ve got a group of kids here willing to work.”

Work is just what the Cowboys did as they attended their second meet of the year in Malad last Thursday. Several of the Cowboy athletes came away with either PR’s or at the very least improvements on their week one performances. North Gem entered the meet as they often do as the smallest school there as they joined 2A fifth district opponents West Side, Bear Lake, and host team Malad. This did not prevent the Cowboys from putting forth a good effort. The girls would have six compete in the 200 meter race with two getting PR’s and Indyana Hatch would have the teams fastest time in her 200 debut. Mariah O’Brien would improve her
