Sponsored content: The meaning of Memorial Day

All too often around Memorial Day we tend to forget exactly why the holiday was created - to honor those American men and women who died during combat. The holiday, instituted in 1866 after the Civil War, was first known as Decoration Day. It was set aside to remember both Union and Confederate soldiers alike.

Clearwater Valley News: Bar to host patio dance, live band this Friday night

The Silver Dollar Pizzeria and Pub in Stites is celebrating the completion of their outdoor covered patio with a grand opening on Friday, May 18, at 7 p.m. The Grant Webb Band will begin at 8 p.m., for dancing. They are a three-piece band described as southern rock and blues with country twang. You are welcome to come early for dinner. A mini-bar is available outside for beer and a few select drinks, so you don’t have to go inside at all if you don’t want to. I’ve enjoyed watching the transformation of the old outdoor space, a muddy patch with a chain link fence around it, to a nice paved patio with a high open-air roof. These last couple of weeks people have been out enjoying the space. They will have ice buckets with six beers for $13.

Opinion

 

I plan on doing the ‘right’ thing

I have to say, I am very disappointed in the Idaho County Farm Bureau. Usually, the group is really good about asking knowledgeable folks to come address the membership about issues before taking such a public position. But in this case, they did not want to invite the county clerk, treasurer, assessor, commission chair or anyone with an understand of the issue to a meeting to offer an explanation of what processing a tax refund might entail.
