Batten down the hatches and prepare to be Submerged! Join Stites Baptist Church for a few days of exploring below the surface. Kids will begin their exploration each day on what lies below the surface in the deep sea by creating crafts, playing fun games, enjoying tasty snacks, singing cool songs, and learning about missions. Kids will discover that Jesus saw people for who they were deep down, not who they appeared to be on the surface.

Just what this new medicinal beer or malt tonic is, no one seems to know, but the fact that it is said to contain 3.75 percent of alcohol is making many an old toper lick his lips in anticipation. Officials in charge of prohibition enforcement declined, in the absence from the city of Assistant Secretary Andrews of the treasury, to say much about the new regulation, except to give assurance that the new “health booster” would be available without prescriptions at drug stores even in bone dry states.

My sweet ’16 quote of the week is by Josh Shipp: “You either get bitter or better. It is that simple. You either take what has been dealt and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate. It belongs to you!” Salmon River School District 243 was Idaho’s top-performing district on the SAT and one of the state’s smallest districts. Salmon River is a four-day week district-based school in Riggins, Idaho with an enrollment of barely 100 students K-12 in the district; there were 37 enrolled high school students 2015-16. The school’s average SAT score was 1,123. Way to go Salmon River; we are all proud of you!
