For several decades in past issues, a column entitled “Corral Dust” ran. In honor of the upcoming Border Days season, we have decided to revive this old standby. It will include all the Border Days news, gossip and dirty laundry (OK, we’ll keep it clean. And fun.) If you have news for “Corral Dust,” e-mail it to email@example.com.
Do you need something else for visitors to do during Border Days? Stop by the Grangeville Chamber of Commerce Visitor’s Center and get a brochure (they’re outside) for Barn Quilts of Idaho County. Listed are 17 barn quilts to view in the county.
