White Bird News: Memorial Day poker run set for May 26

As we approach the middle of the month, I for one was really glad to see the nice weather stick around for last weekend. I hope everyone had a great time and especially the mothers on their day, Sunday. The upcoming events are fast approaching as again we start to look forward to annual celebration of White Bird Days and Rodeo. More on the events as they begin to get closer.

Clearwater Valley News: Bar to host patio dance, live band this Friday night

The Silver Dollar Pizzeria and Pub in Stites is celebrating the completion of their outdoor covered patio with a grand opening on Friday, May 18, at 7 p.m. The Grant Webb Band will begin at 8 p.m., for dancing. They are a three-piece band described as southern rock and blues with country twang. You are welcome to come early for dinner. A mini-bar is available outside for beer and a few select drinks, so you don’t have to go inside at all if you don’t want to. I’ve enjoyed watching the transformation of the old outdoor space, a muddy patch with a chain link fence around it, to a nice paved patio with a high open-air roof. These last couple of weeks people have been out enjoying the space. They will have ice buckets with six beers for $13.

Riggins News: Hike for hooters this Saturday in Pollock

My quote for this week is “Try not to become a person of success, but rather a person of value.” Congratulations to Dr. Dave Hall, who received the 2018 Idaho Family Physician of the Year at their 70th Annual Conference in Sun Valley by the Idaho Academy of Family Physicians. A tribute was made to Dr. Hall for his generous contributions to his profession, to medical education and his service and dedication to his community and the state. For the past 24 years, he has practiced rural family medicine at Salmon River Family Medicine as well as St. Luke’s Clinic Payette Lakes and St. Luke’s McCall Medical Center. Brad Neuendoerf, former SRHS teacher and coach, was recognized as the Wyoming Secondary Principal of the year for 2018.

Clearwater Valley News: Take mom to museum for dessert

I spent a fun Friday evening enjoying the last Kamiah Characters theater performance of the year as part of a great crowd of all ages. The play “How the West was Won or Black Hat Optional,” was a spoof on Western melodrama. It seemed a perfect play for the “Characters” since the parts encouraged them to have some fun and be over-the-top in their acting.

All ladies are invited to come and enjoy a special day with a great program designed especially for mothers. Tea sandwiches, petite cookies, tea, coffee, and punch will be served by the deaconesses.

White Bird News: Pathfinders ride set for May 9

“And the thunder rolls.” Yes, it did Sunday evening, along with mud slides, rock and flooding during the weekend. I hope everyone is OK, and was out of harm’s way. Even a semitruck was no match for an elk on the US 95 hill. I heard that the High School Rodeo and Riggins Rodeo did well and had great turnouts for both events.

Elk City News: Cranes cause racket ‘yelling’ at geese

We heard a racket down in our meadow and when we went to investigate, there were three sandhill cranes “yelling” at four Canada geese, apparently invading their territory. The photo only shows one goose but there were more. Hope you enjoy! Mother’s Day is just around the corner on the 13th. Take time to appreciate your mother in thought and deed. If she is not living, tell your grandkids about her.

Riggins News: Riggins Rodeo on tap for this weekend

My quote for this week is another one from Barbara Bush: “You must read to your children and you must hug your children and you must love your children. Your success as a family, our success as a society, depends not on what happens in the White House, but on what happens inside your house.”

Elk City News: Cort Conley to speak May 11

Got an email from a reader of the column and he said that the woodpecker looked like a Red-naped Sapsucker. He suggested I look it up and sure enough it is! Thanks for the information. Speaking of sightings, the deer are back in Elk City and more have been seen along the Southfork.

Cottonwood News: Help sought with ‘Wizard of Oz’ play

We have had some swans at our place for about a week. They come and go but mostly they are feeding here on the pasture. Wild ducks and the Canadian geese are not unusual, but the swans are. We very seldom see them. We also had a mud duck that we have never seen before. It’s a different year, I guess.
