For help on this visit

You may have noticed the light poles on Main Street in Grangeville don’t have any lights on them. Most of them were burnt out or had bad cords and sockets from years of use. The Grangeville Merchants Committee would like to replace all of the lights, bows, garlands and lights, but need the community’s donations to help. For details call Nancy Asker at 983-0583 or send a donation to Grangeville Merchants, P.O. Box 253, Grangeville, ID 83530. Money needs to be raised by July 2015 to have time to order.

If you didn’t make it to the Prairie Shootout at Grangeville High School Friday night, you missed some great basketball games. Grangeville came up short against Cottonwood for both girls and boys, but not by much.

The Shootout, sponsored by the Idaho County Sheriff’s Department and supported by businesses across the Camas Prairie, raised more than $10,000 for our local food banks.

There are a few things I have learned watching school basketball throughout the years and one of the top lessons is that sometimes you just have to shut your mouth and move on. That goes for fans, parents, coaches and players. My parent friends in Washington take suckers to games. When they feel like shouting at the refs – or anyone else – they stick a Tootsie Pop in their pie holes instead. Not such a bad idea.
