ELK CITY -- Certainly, the talk around town the last week or two, centers around an event/crime that is rumored to have occurred up on the Motherlode road recently. It’s hard to keep anything “secret” in small communities, especially if there is potential to merit some real safety concerns for folks. Coupled with the fact that there are lots of new faces in town, it would be nice if we could get some “facts” from an “official” source to set local minds at ease. Any official willing? I just received information from a family member that confirms the victim of the crime was LeAnna Bailey. Please pray for the family and the community.
Anita wants to thank everyone who participated in this year’s Salsa Contest! This year's competition brought in sixteen entries. The winners are as follows: 3rd place for the Hottest Salsa went to Scuba Steve & Mexican Joe's Hot; 2nd place for the Most Unique split between Sonya Leigh Horrocks, and Will, from Grangeville. This year's Grand Champion for The Best
also went to Will from Grangeville and his Elk Scorcho. Anita says, “I want to thank everyone for entering, judging, and enjoying! Thanks to the guys who drove all the way from Grangeville to enter this year, to Julie Ann Olive for traveling all the way from Dixie, Idaho, and thanks always to Chris Thompson, Butch and Nolene Banks for sign-ins, and Ellen Charters and Karen Crosby for totals and counting. Don't forget next month is the 9th Annual Chili Competition! See you all then!”
