Cottonwood News: Rain good for crops; year’s apples are big

Happy Halloween to everyone. The drenching rain on Sunday was good for the crops just coming up. But not so welcome to the many ranchers working with cattle during the weekend. We had our apple squeezin’ party on Sunday. The apples were unusually big this year. Now to can the apple juice so we can use it all year. I found a new apple pie recipe that I would like to share. This can also be canned in a boiling water canner for 30 minutes to use later.

Lowell / Syringa News: Bugs are all around us

In the air there’s a feeling of fall. Also, there’s about 10 different species of bugs flying all about us. The regular, which includes flies, yellow jackets, bees, wasps, and horse flies, plus beetles, those black ones that smell like vanilla, the skinny brown ones with long antennas, and a few ladybugs. Then a new little white bug just showed up along with grasshoppers. The salmon fly is still here and not to mention the flying ant. My windowsills are pretty buggy right now, and it’s not a pretty sight!

White Bird News: Pottengers available to process wild game

Went hunting Saturday and were coming down Deer Creek, when we came across a big orange rock crusher over the bank. They had the road blocked off and were working at the site, so try to avoid this area. The truck was on a trailer at the Y near Swiftwater RV. Didn’t look too great with the top smashed down, but I believe no one was hurt.

Clearwater Valley News: Carve pumpkins at park this Sunday

Great news for theater lovers! I met up with three members of the Kamiah Characters high school theater group last week at the KHS library. Octavio Spencer and sisters Laura and Kara Dow are excited about a new play they are working on this fall. It is a Star Trek spoof, called “Star Track- the Expedition Menace.” I enjoyed watching two of the Kamiah Characters’ productions last year- “Let’s Hang Him and Read the Will” and “How the West Was Won- Black Hat Optional.” They are fun and light plays that allow the students to try on new personalities and provide a creative outlet. I will keep you posted when performance dates are scheduled. You can bet I will be there!
