My quote for this week is “I admire people who always show kindness and help people, no matter if they’re struggling with their own problems. They are truly a gift to this world.” Anonymous. ‘Tis the season to show kindness, compassion, love, and friendship to everyone; we never know the struggles of others.

Davis, Manley credit Lord in miraculous CPR resuscitation

“He should have been dead,” Elizabeth Manley said. Jeff’s face was blue, and his body would periodically convulse as if trying to breathe. Just a few minutes prior, the 69-year-old volunteer relief worker had slumped into unconsciousness, suffering a massive heart attack. This was the Widow Maker – when the main artery down the front of the heart is totally blocked or has a critical blockage.

Lowell / Syringa News: QRU party set for this Saturday, Dec. 2

Cyber Monday, Black Friday, fast life in the shopping lane goes by and we aren’t on it. On Friday I was too full to move, and I wasn’t about to leave the leftover pies unguarded. On Saturday it was football, football, football. Sunday it was cleanup and say goodbye to company, and Cyber Monday the Internet crashed. This country living isn’t always compatible with the modern living that goes on all around us.

Clearwater Valley News: CVES book fair on tap for this week

I’ve been seeing bald eagles perched on trees or fishing along the South Fork and Middle Fork Clearwater rivers on my way to work. This magnificent bird has been an official symbol of our country since 1782, representing freedom and strength. We almost lost the species in the 1960’s. Bald eagle populations have since recovered to roughly 10,000 breeding pairs thanks to the conservation protections in the Endangered Species Act. The recovery of bald eagles is a true conservation success story with delisting in 2007. It would be a terrible thing to lose the bird that symbolizes our freedom. While there has been a lot of hype this fall about a different symbol of our freedom, the national anthem, I am thankful that bald eagles have endured and are still flying high!

Elk City News: Only deer, elk come out on Black Friday

For those folks who left town for the Thanksgiving holiday, you missed out on the warmest Thanksgiving in memory. No snow, no rain, temperatures in the 60s, but almost feeling like the 70s in the sun. What seemed only a few short weeks ago to have the makings of a long, hard winter similar to seasons past, seems to have melted into a lingering fall of naked brush, brown carpet and the smell of newly cut Christmas trees

Idaho County 4-H achievement awards 2017 announced

What does it take to succeed in 4-H? Ask the 2017 Idaho County Achievement Award Winners who were recently announced. Junior winners are Halee Rowland, Elizabeth Severns and MaKenna York. In the intermediate category are Halle Klapprich, Aliyah Pineda and Mary Kate Forsmann. Senior honorees include Lindsey Goeckner, Gabriel Forsmann, Hunter Connolley and Sydney Andrews. According to Idaho County 4-H director Susie Heckman, during the year, club leaders keep track of all of the members’ activities, giving points for their participation. “Club leaders submit their top point earners to the 4-H Extension office at the end of the 4-H year,” she explained. “The top point earners from all of the 4-H clubs in the county are given to the 4-H Program Council and the 4-H Achievement Award winners are selected.” Heckman said the purpose of the achievement award is to recognize 4-H’ers who exemplify the goals of the Idaho County 4-H Program. Emphasis for the award includes overall achievement, leadership and citizenship. This year’s Idaho County Volunteer Leaders Distinguished Service Award went to Hold Your Horses 4-H Club horse project leader Sharon Blackmer of Grangeville. Blackmer has not only been a club volunteer, but has also been instrumental in assisting with the horse bowl and taking 4-H members to district, state and national competitions, Heckman said.
