Crazy Days are going on in Grangeville this week! Look in this week’s Shopper and Free Press for participating businesses who ran ads. Support your local stores!
In case you didn’t know, the huckleberries are on. And they are the best, thickest berries I have ever seen up by Fish Creek and past that area. They are definitely plentiful this year, and many are right beside the road. Get out there and get some! My brother and I got about two gallons. He picked more than I did, but mine had fewer stems and leaves!
If you haven’t met Syringa Hospital’s newest doctor, you’re in for a treat. Brett Johnson, DO, is a very nice, gentle-spoken man who has a very caring bedside manner. His nurse, Jennifer McColloch, is a sweetheart, too. Patient and kind. Thanks to them for their great care with my mom last week. And look for more on Dr. Johnson next week!
