The huckleberries are ripe but don’t worry, you have not missed out. There are plenty of green berries, too! This is one of those years when you drive out to the woods —- even just up to Fish Creek – the aroma of the berries is in the air. Lots of people are out picking and the berries we did get so far are plump and nice. There are literally more than I have seen in all my 20 years in Grangeville. Tons. Take a drive, take a whiff and get some of these delicacies. For the first round my mom, brother and I went after work one evening. It was so much cooler in the mountains than it was in Grangeville and the dogs also enjoyed a nice run. Then Avery helped pick Sunday night and we now have nearly two gallons!

Jeff Scott has been with Avista in Grangeville for more than a decade and recently accepted a promotion and moved to Spokane. Dan Austin will be the new manager. Look for more information on him soon.

Do you want to get some of the best peaches ever? Stop in at Killgore’s in White Bird in the next few weeks. Steve Killgore said this will probably be the last year for fruit so you don’t want to miss out on this. Head toward White Bird and take a right like you’re headed to the Swiftwater RV Park and on toward Hammer Creek. You will run into Killgore’s Orchards. Bring your own containers and come between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Pay by the pound.

It’s that time of year again – Grangeville High School music department’s Bulldog cards are for sale! Get them while they’re hot. So far they are at Shear Magic with Nikki Gortsema but look for students to have them once school starts, too.
