It was a cold, windy and beautiful day fishing at Winchester Lake Saturday, April 21. I just took pictures and supervised, but I am going to get a fishing license so I can partake next time.
The Idaho County community really came through last week when a Grangeville Subway employee lost an envelope containing her cashed paycheck.
She put the word out on Facebook and called law enfacement to let them know. Well, the money was returned, which was awesome. However, better than that, there were people all across the county ready to chip in and make up the paycheck amount so this young lady would not lose out on her paycheck. Of course, bad things do happen, but we live in a place where people care. Count your blessings.
