As of Tuesday, May 8, 2018
You may have noticed that Dave Seyer’s former insurance office building on Grangeville’s Main Street was demolished May 3. Camas Prairie Insurance (owned by Dominic Lustig) is rebuilding its new office on the same site at 526 W. Main Street. They are temporarily located at 621 West South 1st Street (one block west of the old building, across from Grangeville Builders). The new office is planned to be finished by this fall.
Straight from the horse’s mouth — Idaho Department of Labor in Grangeville in this case — Family Dollar is currently hiring for its Grangeville store location (former King’s store). A variety of sales/clerk positions are open and the next hiring event is June 5.
In the meantime you can always stop in IDOL and visit with them about this and other jobs available in our communities: 158 East Main Street Suite 1A; 208-983-0440 ext. 3789.
Did you know the Jewish state of Israel was established in 1948 and one-third of the citizens are survivors of the Holocaust?

Saturday was a Norman Rockwell kind of day in Grangeville as I mostly sorted through things on the home front. I did, however, venture out to the post office where I ran into Mary Kaschmitter. She is graduating from college this week and applying to dental schools. Wow!
When I drove by the park I saw Earl Musick and Steve Munson playing catching with kids and grandkids. I saw Shannon Wimer mowing her beautifully manicured lawn, Jerry Jessup spraying some weeds by his creek and Dr. Jim Haug planting some shrubs and trees. Just a nice little drive seeing people enjoying the sunshine.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there. Gift Mom the best gift of all: your time.
