— Well, it was looking like spring was going to make her appearance, with buttercups being found, the robins are back, and we even had some sunshine. No, it was not to be…we got snow this last week and it looks like it will stick around again for a few more days ... ugh!

The good news…Daylight Savings Time will start on Sunday, March 12, so remember to set your clocks ahead one hour or you will be late for all the fun activities going on.

The White Bird Library volunteers will be holding the bake food sale at Hoot’s on March 18 from 8 a.m. to noon. Incorrect information was given to me previously. Remember, the March Miniature Madness sponsored by the Salmon River Art Guild will take place that same day in the back of Hoot’s. Come on down and see what they have to offer.

The last board game night for the season was held Saturday. Although the weather was not very kind at times, Lee and Tammy greatly appreciate anyone who braved the cold weather and roads to come out. They say “see you next winter” to all.

The WBARD served around 15 people at their monthly breakfast last Sunday. Remember, this is the last Sunday of each month so come out and help support the WBARD.

The White Bird Gun Club held their shoot amongst the wintery conditions. They had 19 shooters with Don Sickels shooting a 25, Joaquin Lowe, Wade Sickels, Gordon Barner, Darrell Howard, Paul Van Acker, and Jay Frazier with 24.

Sausage feed, Pathfinders ride on tap

WHITE BIRD — One last time to come out on Sunday, March 12, for a great breakfast at the IOOF Hall. This is the annual Joe Wilson St. Patrick’s Day Sausage Feed, starting at 7:30 a.m., and will run until 12:30 p.m. They will also have extra sausage for sale. This is really great tasting so make sure you take a package home for later eating.

Then if you are in the mood for a fun ride to Pittsburg Landing, you can join the Pathfinders ATV Club for their annual barbecue. Come on over with ATVs, UTVs, pickups, horseback or even by foot (that would be a long walk so you may need more than one hamburger). They plan to leave around 11 a.m., and there is a $5 charge for the meal and you are asked to bring your own drink. This is open to the public and if you would like more information, give Brenda Heckman a call at 839-2303.

Scams, family and friends. There is a scam going around in a big way. If you get hacked in any way contact the police. Idaho County is getting hit hard with these terrible scams. Be on the alert for anything that just doesn’t seem right. My friend didn’t go into detail but now has to get new phone numbers as was suggested by the police. With income tax returns being received, there are all kinds of fraud happening so be aware!!

Meetings to remember are on March 6th – Deer Creek Highway at 7 p.m.; Library will meet on the 7th at 10 a.m.; the city council meets on the 8th at 6 p.m.; SRAG will be meeting on the 9th at 10 a.m.

Word is that Bruce Dreyer has gone through his surgery with flying colors and is on the mend. Thanks to Shandra for sharing with us. Prayers go out to him for a speedy recovery and a safe trip home.

Birthday wishes go out to Peg Marek, Andrew Carlson, Jonathon Rhoades, Tressie Hanson, Darious Walker, Shelby Franzen, Trena Hanson, Mick Hanson, Jeanne Fitch, Stephanie Reese, and Jake Ingerson. In Memory of Monte C. Shuck, and Ann Zumwalt.

Anniversary wishes go out to DeWitt & Maureen Randall, David & Donna Seyer, and Mike & Pat Wilt.

TidBits: Did you know what “a shot of whiskey” is? In the old west, a .45 cartridge for a six-gun cost 12 cents, so did the shot of whiskey. If a cowboy was low on cash, he would give the bartender a cartridge in exchange for a drink. This became known as a “shot of whiskey.”
