It's Your Business: Sunset Auto Vue opens this weekend


Lorie Palmer

Well, I heard it through the grapevine that Family Dollar had to do some extra maintenance on the old King’s building, so they will not be opening in Grangeville until mid-July.

Again, this year, Grangeville Community Foundation is participating in Idaho Gives, a statewide, 24-hour giving day taking place online on May 3. Since the inaugural event in 2013, Idahoans have raised more than $4.8 million for participating organizations.

Every year on one day, people across our state come together for Idaho nonprofits. It’s a day to celebrate the awesome work of Idaho’s nonprofits and benefit from the power of many. Idaho comes together—be a part of it! Go to and select Grangeville Community Foundation or the Idaho nonprofit of your choice.

Free Press / Lorie Palmer, David Rauzi (Top) Grangeville Builders Ladies Night was held April 26 with several demonstrations, prizes and food by Superior Events. (Above) Moviegoers lined up along Main Street last Saturday evening, April 28, to a packed house at Blue Fox Theater in Grangeville to see Avengers: Infinity War. Staff reported the theater had been full each night since the movie premiered that Thursday, April 26. Associated Press reported the film earned $250 million in box office through the weekend.

Did you hear the Sunset Auto Vue drive-in theater on Mt. Idaho Grade Road opens this weekend? Sherlock Gnomes, an animated movie, and Lara Croft Tomb Raider, an adventure flick, will play. Gates open at 7 p.m. with the first movie starting at 7:45 p.m. The Avengers is held over at The Blue Fox Theater downtown Grangeville.

Even though someone in my household (who shall remain nameless) thought we should simply fix the old one, after 18 years, I purchased a new dishwasher from Lindsley’s Home Furnishings. I’m so excited! (youngest daughter Hailey said, “It’s so sad you’re at that age where a new dishwasher excites you.”). I got one with three sprayers and a food chopper, but Mike Kinsley (Daeli Appliance Repair) says I should still rinse my dishes if I want the dishwasher to last. OK. I will. By the way, if you need Mike (who picked up my new appliance at Lindsley’s, brought it to my house and installed in) call 208-507-1093.

The old Prairie Elementary School building on Lewiston Street in Cottonwood recently sold. The high bid of $201,000 was submitted by Ryan Uhlenkott. It will be exciting to see what happens with that.

Idaho has a new suicide prevention campaign called “Rock your Role.” I like that a lot. It talks about how each of us has a role in the lives of others. Look it up at
