Sponsored content: Spinal manipulation treatment is safe and effective

The back is a complicated structure of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to back pain. While sports injuries or accidents can cause back pain, sometimes the simplest of movements—for example, picking up a pencil from the floor— can have painful results.

Sponsored content: Don’t let garden go to waste; feed the hungry

For many people, a bountiful garden can be a burden to ensure we’re utilizing the literal fruits and vegetables of our harvest, and not letting them go to waste. But even with sneaking bags of zucchini into someone’s front seat or on a neighbor’s front porch, we still see some of this produce languish and go to waste. So, what’s the alternative? Grow your garden this year with an eye to help feed the hungry in your community.

What’s new in town — do you know? We had an exciting Friday evening when the new fire truck rolled through town.

Elk City News: Elk herd faces wolf predators

I took these two photos within a few days of each other. The Elk City elk herd looks great. But the reality is that the introduced predator, the Canada gray wolf (which were never here in the first place), is back as well. There was a large (approximately 50 lbs.) black and gray wolf spotted a half mile from downtown Elk City near (not on) this dead elk on Elk Creek Road. (See photos)

The annual Salmon River Jet Boat Races are this weekend. Are you going?

Dissolving Syringa Hospital district would be perilous

A letter in the April 11 Free Press suggests dissolving the taxing district for Syringa Hospital. The statement, “The hospital will survive,” merits consideration. Since 2010, 83 rural hospitals in America have closed and 700 more are “at risk” of closing during the next 10 years. Syringa Hospital (and others in Idaho) are in the larger group because they fit the profile of rural hospitals with identifiable trends and patterns of increasing distress.

Give $1.6 million back to the population

In language saved for emergencies, the county told us they were not getting SRS funding this year, so needed to raise taxes by $600,000 to cover the deficiency. Likewise, the school district told us that they too weren’t getting SRS funding, and so need to raise the school levy by almost $1 million to cover the loss.
