My quote for the week is from Nicholas Evans’ book, The Horse Whisperer, “I wish we could make now last forever…I guess that’s all forever is…just a long trail of nows. And I guess all you can do is try and live one now at a time without getting too worked up about the last now or the next now.”January 24, 2018 6 a.m. read more..

I looked closer at the photo of the elk herd that I submitted for the article and saw two more bulls, albeit smaller than the other one. For those of you who know me well, I like house plants but don’t have a green thumb. All my many house plants are “survivors.” My husband gave me a couple of those small Phalaenopsis Orchid several years agoJanuary 24, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
Thousands of miles from Idaho County, an historic tragedy tied Idaho to Ireland. On Feb. 5, 1918, the SS Tuscania was torpedoed and sank at nightfall in the Irish channel. On board was a large contingent of Idahoans, including men from Idaho County and Kamiah. Of these men, William I. Droogs of Mt. Idaho was killed in the incident, as was another Idaho man, John C. Robinson of Potlatch. They were Idaho’s first combat fatalities in World War I. “This is a very significant event to Idaho and our county,” said Idaho County Historical Society member Floyd Whitley of Cottonwood, who has researched the event and created a PowerPoint presentation. A program commemorating the 100th anniversary of the sinking will feature this Monday, Feb. 5, 6 p.m., at Grangeville High School. Admission is free, and the public is encouraged to attend the event, which will also include live period music performed by locals.January 24, 2018 6 a.m. read more..
