Krush sweeps weekend tourney

Grangeville City League Softball Tournament 2015

The Kooskia Krush have won this one before, but not quite like they did last week. Brew Crew came within a foot of dealing Krush a loss on the last swing of the winner’s bracket semifinal, but a long out settled into the glove of the Kooskia team’s tallest player, who went to the fence to save a two-run home run and preserve a 14-13 win. The rematch in the final tipped decisively toward Krush, which led the championship game 6-0 and won it 21-11.

Wolf trapping to remain on halt in wilderness

In January 2014, in response to a lawsuit brought by EarthJustice on behalf of four other pro-wolf groups, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game (IDFG) abruptly pulled a wolf trapper from the wilderness. Last week, EarthJustice released a letter it received on Aug. 5, in which the U.S. Forest Service said Idaho Department of Fish and Game had informed the federal agency IDFG “does not intend to conduct any wolf control actions” in the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness during the coming winter.
