Last week, in my story on Craig Spencer joining the Syringa Hospital Board, I noted that his wife, Jane, was president of Syringa Hospital Foundation. That is a capacity she served in for two years. Know that last Thursday at their annual meeting, they elected new officers. New president is Michele Gildner; Kristi Brooks is vice president; Sharon Cox, secretary; and Dan Goehring, treasurer.

I like to give a shout out to kids who make an impression on me, and this week it’s a couple of young men from Grangeville High School. Student body president Travis Goehring is a stand-up young man. I have seen him in action many times and he’s a great ambassador for the school and just a nice kid. I feel the same way about Dylan Canaday. Both these guys are the type who will open a door for you, help you carry stuff and – a huge plus in my book – make eye contact with you and speak to you no matter where they see you. Kudos to both these guys (and their parents, as well!)
