Don’t be surprised to see the Capital High School football players on the GHS field this Thursday night or Friday morning. The team is on their way to Coeur d’Alene for playoffs and will be staying at Super 8, practicing here and eating breakfast. They will also be attended a movie at Blue Fox Theater thanks to owner Chris Wagner. They will be accompanied by CHS principal John Ruzicka, a graduate of Grangeville High School and son of Bettie Ruzicka, and his son, Reece, who is on the team.

Friday, Nov. 15, has been designated as America Recycles Day. Area recyclers can take pride in their accomplishments during the past four years. Recycling centers in Grangeville, Kooskia and Cottonwood have been established and more than two million pounds of recyclables have been diverted from the landfills and repurposed into new products. Monetary savings have also been significant—garbage dumping fees alone would have averaged over $67,000.

For information visit or call 983-2843.

A “Little Jelly Bags” class will be instructed by Arlene Perrine at Homegrown Quilts on Grangeville’s Main Street Monday, Nov. 18, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Class fee is $10 plus pattern and supplies for the confident beginner. Call 983-0254.

Apparently yesterday, Nov. 12, 2013 (11-12-13) was a popular day to get married for the “lucky” consecutive numbers. The next big “lucky” day will be Dec. 12, 2014 (12-13-14). The next day to roll around kind of like that will not be until Jan. 2, 2030 (1-2-30). Interesting.

Did you know at the distance of 10 miles your eyes can detect the light of a single candle. I learned that from a commercial. And television commercials don’t lie.

So, the Grangeville Community Foundation grant event on Nov. 6 was very nice. Kris Blankenship provided the food and when my daughter ate it she said, “We’re not used to fancy food like this. We’re more used to Hamburger Helper.” Wow. So that’s our life in a nutshell. Kind of makes us sound cheap and easy.
