The recent personnel layoffs at Grangeville Country Club may have members, residents and guests wondering whether the course is in playable condition or whether the clubhouse is open for purchases and greens fees. The answer is yes to both. Board members have stepped forward to help recruit qualified volunteers to keep the fairways in good shape while the clubhouse is being managed to assist members and greens fee players the opportunity to enjoy them. The clubhouse will be opened for some limited hours, most probably 8 a.m.-5 p.m., seven days a week and the volunteers will not be able to serve food; snacks and beverages are available.
“We’re sorry to see the need to take this action, especially since our crew has been so helpful during the season, but our available volunteer labor is a big asset to this club and we all expect a great fall season of golf”, reported club president Andy McNab.

Asker’s Harvest Foods in Grangeville has put together Fire Relief Food Bags, similar to the bags they put together at Christmas and Easter. Select from a $10 or $20 bag of nonperishable food products and Asker’s delivers these to the Camas Prairie Food Bank each week. In addition, but completely unrelated to that promotion, when you spend $20 at Asker’s, you get to enter your name into a drawing for a half-pig. The pig was purchased through the Idaho County 4-H program and two lucky customers will be drawn Oct. 1.
I just came off the sickest week of my life. And not the good kind of sick. Really sick. Stomach flu sick. I did not leave my house for a week, Monday to Monday. I am on the mend and glad to be back at work, but really look forward to feeling 100 percent again. This is the sickest I ever remember being and I pray no one else gets it that badly.
