The new Idaho County Fair royalty were crowned last week. (L-R): 2nd Princess Madison Shears, 1st Princess Paige Layman and Queen Halle Klapprich will represent Idaho County at parades in the region.

School has started, so I hope everyone is taking that few extra minutes to get to your destination. Watch out for the little ones, and stay off your phones til you are safely where you are going. You are not in that big of a hurry to die, and neither is anyone else...stay safe.


Idaho County Fair has a new royalty for 2020. Congratulations go out to Queen Halle Klapprich, 1st princess Paige Layman, and 2nd princess Madison Shears. Miss Congeniality was won by Rose Sherrer. Great job ladies, enjoy your year.


Be on the lookout for rattle snakes, they have been reported being seen at the WBARD area, and at Maggie's place. They can be anywhere were it is cool or wet.


New things are happening on the river, check out Salmon River Resort as they have been busy sprucing up the motel rooms, turning the old office into a rental cabin, maintenance to the grounds, and the beach. They are ready for you to book your stay, family get togethers, or just wanting to relax at the river.


There will be a potluck fundraiser on Sunday, Aug. 25, at the Assembly of God Fellowship Hall in Riggins benefiting the Fiddle Creek Farm and Fruit Stand. They are encouraging members of Riggins and the surrounding areas to join efforts to bring relief to a disaster situation by sharing a potluck lunch, and donating funds to help those that who have recently suffered a major disaster to property and business. Bring your favorite dish, and share! Beverages, plates, cups, napkins, and utensils will be provided. Sponsored by Riggins Ministerial Association.
