Tiny Winner

P1FCU (Potlatch No. 1 Federal Credit Union in Grangeville) held a Christmas coloring contest with three winners in three age groups. Winners were MacKenzie Holman (daughter of Matthew and Melissa Holman) of Grangeville; Lachlon Payseno (son of Shannon Payseno) and Nathan Gall (son of Teresa and Robert Gall Jr.) Mackenzie and Nathan are the grandchildren of Debra and Edward Stuivenga of Grangeville. Each received $10 and a jar of bubbles.

Starting Jan. 4, Clearwater Forest Industries (CFI) will reopen its log yard in Kooskia and will be buying Ponderosa Pine and Douglas Fir logs delivered in the yard. They will stay open through summer or until the majority of the fire salvage has been cut. Stop by CFI in Kooskia to pick up a log purchase agreement. Hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. CFI is paying $48.50 a ton for loads that are 14 inches in diameter on the small end and up to 60 inches on the opposite end. They prefer 33 foot or 16 foot six inches.

Thanks so much to Syringa Clinic and family nurse practitioner Mark Imus. They fit my daughter Avery in for an appointment on the 23rd and after experiencing severe pain/attacks and seeing two different doctors in Boise, Mark insisted on an ultrasound that same day. Avery has gall stones and will most likely need to have her gall bladder out. At least now she knows she isn’t just imagining something is wrong. I do have to say on Christmas Eve she tried to use her “condition” as an excuse when her dad asked her to get him a cup of coffee. “Dad,” she said. “I can’t. I have gall bladder disease.”

Winners of the World’s Biggest Christmas Stocking drawing at Grangeville Builders Supply were Mike and Linda Bear of Grangeville.
