I spent last Saturday afternoon amidst happy chaos at the youth zone at Kamiah Barbecue Days. I volunteered at the obstacle course, a large brightly colored inflatable feature with two lanes. Kids of all ages attempted to leap from one large ball to the next landing on their feet, their bellies, however they could manage, making their way across the course, then climbing out and shooting down the slide at the far end.

Riggins News: Salmon Run is this weekend

My quote of the week: “Always be kind. If you see someone falling behind, walk beside them. If someone is being ignored, find a way to include them. If someone has been knocked down, lift them up. Always remind people of their worth. Be who you needed when you were going through hard times. Just one small act of kindness could mean the world to someone.” I saw lots of this kindness last week in the 4-H/FFA barns in Montana at Beaverhead County Fair.
