Motorcycles were put through their paces at last Saturday’s Oct. 22 Fall Enduro Halloween Classic at the Grangeville Off-Road Park east of Idaho Forest Group off Old Highway 7.

The general format is as many laps as possible in the time allotted.
Personal touch to assist local voters with disabilities
Voters have challenging decisions ahead of them in the upcoming Nov. 8 general election, but for some the difficulties will not be at the ballot box but in just getting there.

One person stood clear of the scissors at Saturday’s dedication ceremony for the new veterans’ center in Grangeville. “I’m commissioned now and they won’t let me touch anything sharp!” joked Robert Skinner, commander for the State of Idaho American Legion. Around 160 people attended the Oct. 15 event, celebrating the grand opening of the Veterans Outreach and Community Center at 318 East Main Street.
We must disagree, in part, with our county Republican friends in their disassociation last week with Senator Crapo for his decision to rescind his endorsement of GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump.
