Lunch will be served at noon with meeting beginning at 1 p.m. No charge for lunch, but members need to call for reservations: 208-983-1558. (Last week I put in Pine Tree’s fax number! Sorry about that!)

The Grangeville Merchants Committee took down the downtown Christmas lighting and decorations on the poles Jan. 11 and found there are a lot of light bulbs missing, taken from the sockets.

A reminder to everyone: If you see anyone vandalizing the lights, report them. A lot of people have spent their time and money making these decorations nice for everyone.

Sheryl Clark is back cooking at Red’s Café in White Bird. Coffee is on by 7 a.m., with breakfast at 7:30 a.m.


Last week’s story on multiage classrooms should have stated they began just more than five years ago under superintendent Greg Bailey and continued to be re-worked under superintendent Kent Stokes. — LP

Kooskia Café on Kooskia’s Main Street has a great, fresh salad bar and awesome, brown French fries. After an afternoon with photographer Shilo Hall Bradley on the Middlefork of the Clearwater River, Hailey and I stopped by. To be honest, we were headed to the Backroads Café, but they had a sign on the door that said the cook was out with the flu. Yikes! Hope it isn’t the horrible influenza sweeping Idaho.

Last week, Kellogg School District had to shut down due to so many students and teachers with the flu. They sanitized the entire school and gave it several days to air out. I heard on a radio program that last year was Idaho’s deadliest flu season on record, but this year is catching up and it isn’t even peak season yet. So, be careful. Wash your hands a lot, cover your mouth and nose, stay home when you’re sick. I understand the flu shot is only covering about 10 percent of flus this year, but 10 is better than nothing.
