Baring the unexpected, Oscar’s Restaurant is set to open back up in March. That’s next week! A lot has been going on there — new flooring in the kitchen, painting, carpets have been cleaned and the menu is being worked on.

Coming soon! In the March mailing of the City of Grangeville’s utility bills, there will be a Public Survey form for city residents and property owners to fill out. When completed, the forms should be returned to city hall in person or by mail. The tallied results of this survey will be used to assist the city in developing current and future goals. This is a way for all Grangeville citizens to be heard and involved in the city’s government and direction.

Grangeville businesses: Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 12, for the annual chamber of commerce chili cookoff. Look for more details soon.

How many dimples are there on a standard sized basketball? This question came up on our way to Lewiston this week (because it was something that came up in Mr. Hall’s class at GHS). According to sources on-line, the number is about 35,000. Which made us wonder about a golf ball … and that’s about 336 to 500-ish, depending on the brand. File that away in the “useless trivia” file of your mind.
