A story on may have caught your eye: A CNN 10 Dare to Go places includes Idaho as its No. 4 destination to visit. That’s some great publicity!

The story is a little cliché with its “Honey, forget Bora Bora; let’s go to a potato farm!” But hey, we all know Idaho is more than potatoes.

Don’t forget: Distinguished Young Women of the Camas Prairie (formerly Junior Miss) will hold its program Saturday, June 7, at Grangeville Elementary Middle School, 7 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend.

There are four candidates this year: Arika Arnzen of Nezperce and then three Grangeville High School students: Kristin Kaschmitter, Abbigail Cartwright and Kaleala Bass.

This is the first time the area has had this program in many years. I hope you will support it as it’s a great benefit to young ladies who are juniors in high school. For details call Kim at 750-6460 or Sue at 413-8428.

A shout-out this week to Dr. Told at Syringa Hospital and Clinics. Although getting her tonsils out at age 21 was not really on Avery’s bucket list, we do appreciate the great care from Dr. Told, the humor of anesthesiologist Tom Overly and the attention from the entire staff. A special thanks to Teresa Lustig at the clinic who has answered all of our questions and fielded all of our calls, never making us feel silly and always having a cheerful answer. She is a gem! It’s a little more difficult of a recovery when you’re an adult, but Carlee and Mary at Crema Café have made Avery some great drinks (they’re just lasting a long time!) and Chad and crew at Irwin Drug have kept her medicated. Thanks to all including the Thanstrom family for the icecream!
