— Torrential rains caused a lot of flooding in the Greencreek area last week. The picture is further east on Red Rock Road in the Winona area where the water was up to the edge of the road. There is a culvert underneath the road, but it could not handle all the water. It formed a whirlpool above the mouth of the culvert.

Congratulations to all those graduating from high school and college this year. We don’t know what the future holds, but we do know who holds the future. Good luck to all of you.

Dani Cochran received her Best of Idaho County award and also a promotion from Cottonwood Chief of Police, Terry Cochran at the Cottonwood City Council meeting last week.

A benefit for Dick F. Nuxoll will be held on May 31 to help with his hospital bills. “The Rib Guy” will be cooking a barbecue at the Mini Village starting at 11 a.m. and going until the food runs out.

It’s vacation Bible school time at Emmanuel Baptist Church, 404 Foster, Cottonwood. Children age 4 through sixth grade are admitted free from 9 a.m. to noon June 11 through 15.

Bishop Peter Christensen was here last week on Wednesday, May 16, to formally recognize Summit Academy as a private Catholic School in the Diocese of Boise. The leadership of the school is now working on a new name that will reflect more of a Catholic identity. Anyone who is interested in giving their children a Catholic education can contact the school at 208-962-5650.

Congratulations to Debbie Chicane who was awarded the Guardian award by Bishop Christensen at the confirmation ceremony Wednesday evening. This is an award that the bishop started three years ago to honor lay people who are unsung heroes in the diocese for their work by touching the lives of hundreds of people and leading them to Christ. Debbie and her husband, Joe, have spent countless hours working with the youth of the tri-parish.
