— Fall is on its way, the cooling in weather hopefully will help with all the fires that are burning in all states. Our hats off to all firefighters and anyone else who are working the fires - please stay safe out there.

It’s the end of the month, so not much going on in our little town, but hunting has started, many people are out getting their fire wood, holidays are creeping up on us, so we are busy!

September will be upon us very soon, so here are some upcoming meetings to think about attending: Food bank pickup will be on Sept. 6 at noon; they are in need of some help so contact Leah if you are able to be there. WBARD will be meeting on the 10th at 7 p.m., City Council meets at 6 p.m. on the 12th, SRAG meets at 10 a.m. and the chamber will have its meeting at 10:30 a.m., on the 13th. Many new things are happening around town and I’ll have more information on them in the coming weeks as some things are still being finalized. Keep reading for updates. I can say that they are breaking ground for the new city hall/fire station. They also have the park mapped out for the new Veterans Park and will start soon on the work there.

Once again, the Brown Bag Series has started at the Idaho County Historical Museum in Grangeville. These are great programs that start at noon every Wednesday. Bring a lunch and enjoy various programs. Next week’s will be on Sept. 5 with Jinny Cash talking about the Arnold Family History.

September is the Annual Gun Show at Hoot’s Cafe on the 8th and 9th. Saturday is 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sunday will be 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a small admission charge at the door. Call 208-839-2265 for more details.

The Salmon River Run will also be held on the 8th, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (MDT). This is in Riggins and is a family-friendly event. Check out

TidBits: One of the last long holidays is upon us - Labor Day is on Sept. 3, which, of course, many will have a three-day weekend. Enjoy, but remember we are still in a very dry season; use caution and your heads when camping, using fires of any kind, and please follow the rules that have been implemented for the forest service and campgrounds.

More words to ponder...

  1. The best way to forget your own problems is to help someone else solve his or hers.

  2. Take from each day a reason for tomorrow.

  3. Do something for somebody every day for which you do not get paid.

  4. There’s no need to be perfect to inspire others. Let people get inspired by how you deal with your imperfections.
