Wednesday Jan. 14, 3:03 a.m., Syringa Hospital welcomed its first baby for 2015. Taylor Canaday and Mark McColloch are the proud parents of a healthy baby girl, Ally J., who weighed seven pounds, three ounces, and was delivered by Dr. Told. Syringa has been preparing for this birth for more than a month now. In December, Syringa employees started making donations for the first baby born in Idaho County as well as the first baby born at Syringa. All employees participated in some way. Along with donations of baby outfits and basic infant supplies, a large diaper cake was created and monetary donations were used to purchase gift certificates for dinner and a movie for the parents and a pack and play for little Ally. Gift certificates were also donated for an hour-long photo session and 25 birth announcements.

My Friday night was exciting. I watched Horse Tribe on KSPS (Idaho Public TV). It was about Navajo horseman Rudy Shebala whose family ranch is in the Kamiah/Kooskia area. His son, a young Hahots Shebala, Kamiah High School student, was also featured. The story was about reviving the Nezperce horse culture. Check it out on PBS or where you can watch it on-line.

Something else I saw on PBS was a story about the rural doctor shortage. I have recently written about this but watched the show Idaho Reports and saw a segment on there that reported Idaho is sixth in the nation for most aged doctors. In Idaho we currently need 1.7 new doctors for every doctor retiring, based on population and the aging inhabitants of the state.

Idaho Reports on the local PBS stations is a great wrap up of what’s going on in Idaho as far as the Idaho legislature, interviews with representatives, the governor and lieutenant governor, economics, infrastructure and so much more. Check local listing but it’s a regular show. You can also watch past shows on-line at

Need some cookies for Valentine’s Day? The People First group (a local organization that helps persons with disabilities) is selling Valentine cookies.
