Lowell / Syringa News: The shop pack rat has been caught

Lots of nice folks came into town to make for a busy week. There’s a fire up Coolwater Road at the lookout, caused by lightning last Tuesday, not too big, they are letting it burn, but very hot! Is there any other kind? Smoke was very thick for the Labor Day weekend and folks were feeling its effects. Can’t go East because it’s worse in Montana, can’t go north, Canada is on fire (hot kind), and can’t go West, Washington had its own problems! So, we go south?? Not sure! Big wedding at River Dance Lodge in Syringa last Saturday, Donn Gibbs and Kelly Brooks had a birthday celebration in Lowell, Marty and Dani Smith had a party for their son, Max, who turned 4, and the bikers from Montana had a hullabaloo up the Selway, add on Barbecue Days in Kamiah, and CV varsity football in the Kibbie Dome, you have yourself one busy newsworthy week.
