LOWELL/SYRINGA — Lowell and Syringa on Aug. 2, hot, smoky and busy weekend upriver. What’s wrong with normal? Like maybe 85 with a breeze?
A big female black bear was out on the highway in Lowell, injured and bleeding, running back and forth. Our local F&G guy had to put her down. I ran and got Trevor Phillips, who is the F&G guy in charge of the fish trap at the bridge, he said, “I’m the fish guy, not the game guy, I don’t even have a weapon, I’d have to use a steak knife,” plus he was wearing a shirt that said on the back, “I AM SMOKEY’S FRIEND.” It’s a good thing Christianson from downriver came in and helped. But if you see a fish in trouble, I’ll call Trevor!
This week bikers comin’ and goin’ from Sturgis, they look tough, but really nice guys and gals! It’s been a good July all in all, the blackberries are just about ready, no fires close and lots of travelers. Kooskia Day was fun, the MERMS and Max all went, and loved it, nice to see old friends. My mom is writing a letter to the editor of the Lewiston Tribune; she’s still got it and she ain’t afraid to use it!
