If you were at the Kamiah Free Barbecue Days parade Saturday, Sept. 2, you witnessed a lot of great entries. Floats and people who gave away a ton of awesome prizes and candy. Even fidget spinners. However, one of the most popular giveaways was by Sanitary Plumbing Systems. The owner sat atop a porcelain throne and threw out a popular commodity — rolls of toilet paper and mini plungers, to boot. Great idea!

Thanks to Free Press Editor David Rauzi, I can now join the Raiders Club. Not sports, my friends. Raiders of the Lost Ark. When the original Indiana Jones movie came out in 1981, I was not allowed to see movies. I missed a lot of movies (don’t worry, I made up for a lot of it during college at the Frontier $1.50 theater in Nampa). Anyway, David has been telling me for years that I would enjoy Raiders. I watched all four of the Indiana Jones movies and enjoyed all of them, really, in varying degrees. I now understand the inside jokes and innuendos. I am no longer a Raiders outsider.
