Idaho County Free Press/Shopper/ICFP Media employees recently attended an Eagle Newspapers advertising conference in Hood River, Ore.
Making the trip were publisher Sarah Klement and advertising representatives Lisa Adkison and Ashley Hagen. There, the trio racked up several awards.
They won first place in Best Self Promotion (It’s Your Business) and Best Print and Digital Combination (Holiday Showcase). They had one minute to make their case for each publication. In addition, they also won $200 for the office for Outstanding Innovation and Originality.

Did you know 28 percent of cars in 2017 no longer carried spare tires in an effort to reduce weight and efficiency? This translated to AAA seeing 450,000 flat tire calls in the past year.
The TV news show 20/20 stated in its report Nov. 11 that there are open ISIS recruitment investigations in every state. Check your kids’ computers and phones and talk to them. I think the communication is most important. You wouldn’t believe the stories about teens who have been recruited. It is not limited to “social misfits” or those who practice Islam. We’re talking star athletes, smart kids, nerds, Catholics, Protestants, Muslims and the children of military personnel. Kids want to feel like they are a part of something bigger, an important movement. They get sucked into the “cause.” It’s frightening, and even if you’re saying, “my child would never,” have the discussion anyway. I talked to my 18-year-old daughter. We kind of laughed but also realize how serious it is.
