A letter was sent out recently to property owners simply stating, “you are cordially invited to attend two meetings,” regarding information on a new proposal for the Lochsa River Corridor from the Idaho State Historical Society. The first meeting is a summary of proposal with questions and answers. The second meeting is in Sandpoint will be held on Saturday, Sept. 22. This will be for consideration for the review board. Short notice but to the point.

It is an important issue and is first and foremost with all the residents upriver.

Fairs, rodeos, biker runs, football games and volleyball too, all around us. But here upriver we have local excitement. This week it is time to set free our praying mantises. They are fat and healthy eating up to four grasshoppers a day. The time is right for a relocation project!

It’s important to remember that now, in the Ides of September, with the changing weather, things happen.

In other news, hunting season opens in spurts. The first being bow season which is open now, so it all begins, as well as the end of the rafting season. So put away your Patagonia, get out your Carhartt camouflage!

Max turned 5 last week. He got protective gear for his big present. Mastering a two-wheeled bike, he got a helmet, knee pads, elbow pads, hand pads, and all with Velcro to hold them tight. He got them all on and he looked up and said, “where did I put my bike?”
