— Seven miles south of town along the Grangeville-Salmon Road, someone tore down the sign that points out the turnoff up to the Snowhaven Ski and Tubing Area last weekend.

“They hooked on to the posts with a chain and pulled it down,” Snowhaven manager Scott Wasem said Sunday night, Oct. 29. “Insurance will not pay for it because our deductible is $500. We are currently looking into getting a metal sign, like a highway sign, to replace it. It will probably take at least a half day to get it set and approximately $200-$300 dollars to get the sign.”

The sign was also shot with a shotgun, Wasem told the Free Press.

He noted it was originally painted by volunteers Ellie Thomas and Amelia Marek, who also painted the Snowhaven logo on the building seven-plus years ago.

“It’s really sad to see it go,” Wasem said.

He said Sunday he had not filed a police report.
