COTTONWOOD -- I always wondered what it would be like to live in Antarctica. I think we are getting a taste of it. Nothing to see but white snow, no difference between the ground and the sky, and snow and more snow!

Skiing is great on Cottonwood Butte. It is one of the best ski hills in the area, I am told. They offer all the amenities plus lessons so anyone can join it.

The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude is collecting historical photos from this area. The photos should depict communities and features such as barns, post offices, main streets, community celebrations and people. Anyone who has photos to share can bring them to the museum 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. They will be scanned to use and archived for digital collection and prints may be used in exhibits. The museum does a good job of preserving the heritage of this area. E-mail dgraham@stgertrudes.org or call 208-962-2054.

Congratulations to Jennifer and Danielle Cochran who were given plaques for “Outstanding Volunteers” for the City of Cottonwood Police Department. Keep up the good work!

On March 8, Idaho and Lewis County Republicans will have their Lincoln Day Dinner. Guest speaker will be Loren Spivack, a well-known speaker and author of two books, “The New Democrat” and “the Gorax.” Spivack is both funny and poignant as he makes his case that capitalism is the real victim of environmental extremists who destroy prosperity without achieving their own goals. He is known as the Free Market Warrior. Contact any precinct committee person for more information or call Donna Wassmuth at 208-962-3561. Snow canceled the meeting last week so I do not have details, but there will be a dinner, so come and plan to have a good time.
