Come view these great local cars. All wheeled vehicles are welcome. For questions call 208-983-2333.

Speaking of Umpqua Bank parking lot in Grangeville: It’s going to be paved soon! Some issues caused a little more work to have to be done than previously thought; however, crews were working on the parking lot and doing prep work last week and it should be paved within the next week or so.

Note the Idaho County Recycling sites at Grangeville, Cottonwood and Kooskia will no longer be accepting plastics due to the declining market.

For questions on this or other recycling needs call 208-983-2843.

Valor and I had a great weekend in Boise. We decided on an impromptu surprise trip to see Avery and Hailey. We were there Friday through Monday and enjoyed some exploring, shopping, food, laughter, games (at Hailey’s workplace, Dave & Busters), visiting and a movie. It was a good Labor Day weekend and the drive (traffic) wasn’t too bad.
