We’re all about caring for our human visitors during community celebrations, but what about the canine guests they bring with them? Here’s is an idea for businesses: provide dog watering and treat stations in front of your business to help those pooches keep hydrated and treated well during these hot days. Here’s an example from one seen in Newport, Ore., during the Free Press editor’s summer vacation.

Do you know that according to the Urban Dictionary, a selenophile is a person who loves the moon and stars. I was thinking about this during the recent bright, blue moon (which also gives us an idea where the phrase “once in a blue moon,” comes from).

I hope you got out and around town for Grangeville’s Crazy Days last weekend. Hailey and I went to several stores including Baza’R Shoes where everything is an additional 50 percent off as it slowly sells out. Hailey got a pair of white Chuck Taylor low-top Converse and owner Tracy Bush looked at the date on them – 1998. So, Hailey has shoes older than she.

Thanks to Montana Rodeo Queen 2013 Alyson Hanson, former Lewiston Round-up and Border Days Queen Kami Fogleman and former Border Days Princess Christi Sonnen for putting on the Queening Clinic in Grangeville Saturday, Aug. 1. The 19 girls who attended learned a lot and got a lot of encouragement from the organizers. A big thanks, too, to the White Bird Rodeo volunteers, Rick and Micki Miller and the Bakers, for all their help!
