Automated Dairy Systems

very best in today’s leading dairy equipment manufacturers, such as GEA, and Mueller, but also for what they call their “above-andbeyond, around-the-clock service.” Good, dependable 24-7 service is a “must have” for producers, the company says, especially when milking equipment goes on the blink and poses a potential threat to the herd if it is not remedied promptly and properly. It is fundamentally important that producers have a reliable equipment company that is immediately available when an emergency arises. ADS provides topnotch, expertly trained personnel to handle any situation -- whether it involves new installation, remodeling or an isolated breakdown. In an effort to respond as quickly as pos-

Jerome County Airport
by Cathy Roemer
Jerome County Airport continues to flourish under the direction of airport manager, Garth Baker. Baker has worked to increase fuel sales over the past year, reporting a 38% average increase from the previous year. This added revenue helps to maintain airport operations and accounts for about 70% of of what it takes to run the airport. That means fewer tax dollars are necessary for airport operations. Dollars are also generated from private hangar leases with the county. Improvements to the runway are generally funded with grant money from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). In 2016, the FAA awarded $181,714.00 to Jerome County for runway improvements. The county contracts with a consulting group, TO Engi-
neers, Boise, who specialize in FAA rules for airport upgrades and maintenance. They assist with grants and engineering. Baker has taken steps to increase “stops” at the Jerome County Airport by arranging for Hertz to deliver rental cars upon request from fly-ins. A local hotel also offers a reduced rate for those who “park” or layover at the Jerome Airport. Many travelers are headed to the Sun Valley area and find it convenient to land in Jerome and continue north by car. Lighter aircraft are the norm but the runway can easily handle larger, 8-10 passenger planes.

JAIL WRAP UP
by Charlie Howell
Since opening the new jail/ sheriff’s office in July with 38 inmates, the numbers have increased over time. The highest number was 93 inmates at the beginning of December. Currently we are housing 72 inmates, 40 from Jerome County with the remainder coming from Lincoln and the State. State inmates pay $45 per day plus medical (set by the legislature) while Lincoln County is paying $60 per day. There has been discussion between the Sheriff and Commissioners of where to place the money from outside inmates. Currently the payments are being placed in the general fund in a separate line to keep track of the income. Some have expressed the idea of paying the bond down at a higher rate, saving the money for future expansion of the fa-
cility when needed or even just applying the payments to the operating costs of the facility to keep the budget down as well. The average cost of operating the new jail has not been established due to several billing errors on utilities, and not having a complete year of heating, cooling, and utilities. As with any new facility a couple hick ups have been encountered, an over use of water, heating issues in the jail itself, and a couple electrical circuits left off the emergency generator. The facility passed the first operational inspection performed by the state, and accompanied by staff and Commissioners, with only a few minor notes. The jail is inspected on a quarterly basis by Lt. Ibarra, and Commissioners Howell and Morley with the report passed
Northside Military Museum: A Place of Honor for Magic Valley Veterans
By Amanda L. Bolich
In November of 2016, the veterans from Jerome and across the Magic Valley celebrated the opening of the Northside Military Museum. The museum is the culmination of twenty-two months of dedicated work by area veterans and volunteers who dreamed

Holiday Safety Tips
by Jennifer Westendorf, St. Luke’s Safe Kids Magic Valley
Here are a few safety tips to ensure a fun and safe winter:
Travel Safety In and Around Cars
Most of us will hit the roads during the holidays whether to shop, travel, or go about our daily routine. Traffic is heavier, parking lots are overcrowded and people are distracted. Weather adds another element of danger to an already busy season. • Follow the saying: “Drive Means Drive” by putting your phones down and paying attention to the road. • Always buckle up before pulling away. Make sure everyone is safely in their seat, car seats are installed correctly and seatbelts are worn correctly. Studies show 73% of cars seats are not installed correctly. Safe Kids recommends having a technician check to ensure your child safety seats are installed properly. You can contact Safe Kids Magic Valley at 208-814-7640 to schedule a seat check or get information on the nearest
check site. • Keep gifts and food in the trunk or under a cargo net to ensure they stay put if you come to a sudden stop or are involved in a crash. Loose items become projectiles. This includes unbelted people. • Use extra caution in parking lots. There are more adults, children and cars than usual and sometimes they can be difficult to see. • Before traveling, remember to make sure your vehicle is good working order. Place blankets, water and food in the car for those unexpected emergencies. • Have an exit strategy. Instead of stopping to feed a baby or change a diaper on the side of the highway, wait for the next exit and pull into a safe area. • Talk with your teen drivers about the hazards of holiday driving. There is more traffic, more pedestrians and more distractions than usual. Don’t forget the possibility of bad weather added to all the hustle and bustle of the season.
• Always have a designated driver or ride arranged if you plan to drink.
Safe Kids Worldwide reports in 2012 an estimated 136,314 children, ages 19 and under, were injured due to a fire or burns. • While cooking, keep the handles of pots turned away from the edge to prevent little ones from pulling hot or boiling items off the stove. • Place hot dishes away from the edge of counters and tables to keep curious little hands from getting burned. • Pay close attention to items in lower cabinets. Dishwasher tabs and other cleaners are toxic and tem pting to kids. • If you don’t have small children, think about your
arriving guests and what potential hazards might be lurking in easily accessible places. Move things up and out of sight. • Watch out for batteries while decorating and opening gifts. Batteries can be a choking hazard and can be dangerous if ingested.
Many toys and games have small parts that can be hazardous to small children. In 2011, Safe Kids Worldwide reports an estimated 193,200 children were treated in emergency rooms for toy related injuries. ·• Always read labels to check for age recommendations. ·• Read warning labels and instructions to ensure the toy or game is just right for the child in mind. • Consider the age of the other children in the home. If there are lots of small parts, an age appropriate gift for one child may become a hazard to younger curious
siblings. • When purchasing bicycles, skateboards, scooters, snowboards and snow skis, don’t forget the helmet and other safety gear. • Is anyone getting an ATV, UTV or snow mobile? Don’t forget the proper safety gear. In Idaho, anyone under the age of 18 must wear a DOT approved helmet when riding or driving an OHV (off highway vehicle). The driver of an OHV must have a valid Idaho driver’s license or successfully complete an OHV safety course and received a certificate for unlicensed operators. Safe Kids Magic Valley at St. Luke’s is dedicated to helping families by providing education and resources for injury prevention. For more information on holiday safety or other safety topics, contact Safe Kids at 208-814-7640. Wishing you and yours a happy and safe holiday season!

Rotary Christmas Basket Project By: Annabelle Day
As the Holiday season is drawing to a close, Rotary begins their Annual Christmas Baskets. Rotary is an international organization that focuses on helping and bringing unity to their communities through various projects and supporting local causes. Christmas Baskets was first started by Kiwanis. Nineteen years ago, when they could no longer get the man-power to accomplish the project, Rotary took over. On, Saturday, December 17, everyone gathered at the old Paul’s Store, courtesy of Jerry and Connie Ridley, and set up 364 boxes for 182 families. A truck of canned food, crackers, cereal, tortillas, gravy, stuffing, and other Christmas dinner foods was unloaded and lined against the walls. The foods were evenly distributed among the boxes. Potatoes donated by Reed Crozier and Family were bagged and also placed in all of the
food boxes. Gifts donated by Toys for Tots and Rich Thompson Trucking were sorted based off of gender and age group. The gifts were wrapped and dispersed among the boxes for each family based off of children in the home. On Friday, the boxes were taken to the homes. Jerome was divided into four sections (SW, NW, SE, and NE) and the delivery plans made accordingly. Other perishable foods donated by Walmart, Farm Credit, and Jerome Cheese were loaded into trucks along with the boxes to be taken to each address. This project is not just a Rotary activity, but something that the entire community takes part in. Clubs from the high school come for their community service hours, including FFA, National Honor Society, Young Politicians of Jerome, and SkillsUSA. The turkeys come from KMVT’s 60 Hours to Fight Hunger. The Northside Canal
Company brings out their trucks and helps deliver the packages each year. Optimist donates coats to be given to each family member and Giltner Milk Transportation has always been generous. Bryan Craig, secretary of the Jerome Rotary club and co-chair of the Rotary Christmas Basket project with Autumn Barney, says that this project has helped 275 to 300 people each year. Each year fluctuates in numbers, but this year is down. Craig remained positive and believes that this shows that Jerome’s economy is better this year. Rotary has faced challenges through the years with delays in receiving gifts, not enough help, and various issues brought up with different locations. Craig recalled being in one building where there was no light or heat. Despite any problems or setbacks, Rotary has continued to push forward, on a mission to better their community and help the needy.

Jerome Military Museum Open to the Public
By: Jairo Damian On November 11th, the old Pioneer Hall became a military museum to showcase military artifacts from people around the Magic Valley. The museum itself show-cases artifacts such as uniforms, binders filled with photos during people service tours, and items used by soldiers such as Zippos lighters. The opening ceremony had approximately 100 people show up and the Mayor and County Commissioner as speakers. They held a flag ceremony with the Chamber Singers from Jerome High School singing at the ceremony. Overall, 200 people came in from places such as Shoshone and Kimberly. The reason for building the museum was to honor veterans around the Magic Valley and to honor their service they did for their country. Eric Bolich, the chair-men of the museum said, “Me and my wife decided to do something to honor veterans since we don’t have something here in Jerome that does. We held a meeting January 2015 to discuss this and we decided to renovate the Pioneer Hall into a museum. We held fundraisers and gathered donations to fund this and in April we started to collect artifacts. We collected over 300 artifacts in about a 7 month period.” Most of the items in the museum have been either donated or loaned to the museum for a certain time. Amanda Bolich, the Curator and Secretary said, “As curator I most definitely keep up-dating the museum. I plan to update the exhibits every 3-4 months. The more we update the more people want to visit the museum. If it’s going to be the same artifacts people are going to be bored of it. ”

School Construction Wrapping Up
bu Dale Layne
Major construction from the facilities bond is wrapping up in the Jerome School District this month. The construction impacted 4 schools in the district. Jefferson Elementary added 7 new classrooms along with site work on the campus. The interior of the 4 new classrooms at Summit Elementary has been completed with teachers
and students moving into 2 of the classrooms already. The exterior work will finish up this month. Jerome Middle School is adding 8 new classrooms which will also finish up within the next month. Two classrooms of students moved in shortly after Christmas Break. The most noticeable construction has been at Jerome High School.
The $18 million project is comprised of 16 classrooms which includes a science lab, drama room, art room, math wing, special education classrooms, as well as general education classrooms. A new gymnasium, weight room, wrestling room, kitchen, and cafeteria surrounds the West and North sides of the building. A complete remodel
of the auditorium and new admistrative offices were also included. Several small items on the punch list will continue to be addressed over the next couple of months. Many positive comments have been made about the new facilities both from local patrons and visitors to the campus. The entire campus has a fresh new look that can be noticed when one drives by the school. Patrons may have also
observed construction at Horizon Elementary over the summer and into the fall. An upgrade to the fire sprinkler system, repaving of blacktop areas in the front and back of the building, and a new roof were paid with current plant facilities levy funds. As projects wrap up, all construction has stayed within budget.

CSI HAPPENINGS Faulkner Planetarium “Secret Lives”
by Doug Maughan
TWIN FALLS – ‘Secret Lives of the Stars’ may suggest that the Faulkner Planetarium has gone tabloid, with the latest gossip about Kim, Kanye, and the rest of the Kardashian clan. Actually, it’s the latest fulldome show for the Faulkner, narrated by Patrick Stewart. Secret Lives of Stars reveals hidden aspects you may never have suspected, such as multiple star systems in gravitational embraces, stars so bloated that they shed layers of gas into the expanse of
space, and stellar time bombs just waiting to go off at any time. The program will look into the stars visible from southern Idaho as well as those in the southern hemisphere. Secret Lives of Stars will be shown at 7 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays as well as at 2:30, 4:30, and 7 p.m. on Saturdays. The Faulkner Planetarium features Idaho’s largest dome, at 50 feet. Located in the Herrett Center for Arts and Science on the College of Southern Idaho campus in Twin Falls,
the Faulkner has been serving the public for 21 years with high quality educational and entertaining programming in astronomy, meteorology, paleontology, history and other topics. Admission prices are $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $4 for children ages 2 through 17; children under age 2 are admitted free.

Museum (Cont’d from Pg A7)
The Northside Military Museum is a non-profit organization that recognizes the contributions of area businesses and individuals for the speedy rate at which the organization moved from being an idea to opening its doors to the public. Bolich said, “The generosity we’ve been shown from the very beginning is a real testament to how much the public wanted this to happen. We could not have come this far, this fast, without the incredible support we’ve been given by private citizens and businesses.” Since they began collecting items to be displayed, the museum has accumulated a collection of nearly 400 items that have been either donated or placed on loan. These items range from a near-
ly complete World War One nurse uniform and 46-star flag to modern equipment and uniforms. Currently, the main exhibition is centered on the Pearl Harbor attack to commemorate its 75th anniversary, however the curator is planning a new exhibition to begin in March. “We’ve been honored to undertake this project,” Bolich said. “We’ve had such a great response from everyone who has come to tour the museum; it really drives us to keep moving forward. There is still a lot of work to be done.” The building that houses the museum is still in need of repairs and renovations. The group is now looking at fundraising options to raise the approximately $15,000 needed to replace roof and build a cover over the ramps on the east side of the building. Bol-
ich said, “The public has been so generous up to this point, and now that we are open and people can see what we’ve accomplished, we hope the Magic Valley will continue to support us.” Donations are always accepted, whether they are items to be displayed or financial gifts. Monetary donations can be mailed to: Northside Military Museum PO Box 261, Jerome, ID 83338; or brought to the museum at 220 North Lincoln in Jerome. The museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, 1:00pm to 5:00pm (though bad weather may cause unexpected closures). Special tours can be arranged for schools or other groups (with sufficient advance planning) through email at nsmilmuseum@gmail. com or by calling Amanda Bolich at 208-5958012.

Staying Hydrated During Winter: Why It’s Important and How to Do It (taken from JRD Newsletter January 2017)
Few things are as satisfying as an ice-cold glass of water on a hot day. But, it’s a lot more difficult to get the same satisfaction when the temperatures outside are freezing and the last thing on your mind is enjoying a cold beverage. Nevertheless, staying hydrated during the winter months is crucial if you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle. There are plenty of reasons to increase your daily water intake, no matter what the season. But most importantly, your body needs water to function properly. Not only does water help you stay hydrated, it also helps regulate body temperature and is essential to the function of cells, tissues and organs.
Try warming up with a nice cup of hot green tea, or even hot water with lemon. These two hot beverages will keep you cozy on a chilly winter’s day, but also help you keep on pace to drink your eight glasses of water. Eat your water? No, we’re not suggesting eating ice cubes. In fact, several fruits and vegetables have a high water content that can help you reach your daily intake goals. Broccoli, strawberries and celery are all great sources of water. Don’t drink the wrong things When you’re trying to get enough water, sometimes it’s just as important to know what not to drink. Both caffeine and alcohol can make your body even more dehydrated. Limiting your intake of soda, coffee and alcoholic beverages can help keep that needed hydration in your system where it belongs.
Drinking water can even give your immune system a boost and prevent you from getting sick during peak cold and flu season. And, did we mention that drinking water can increase your metabolism and help you feel full, longer. This could help curb your appetite and enable you to maintain healthy eating Don’t forget to break out the habits. air humidifiers as well.

The amount of water you should drink on a daily basis depends on your weight and overall level of physical activity. Drink Up!! Aim to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces of water each day, and adjust based on your level of physical activity. Hot beverages count, too
