Beginning Jan. 6, Doumacq, Deer Creek and the White Bird Highway Districts will be doing the deck repair on the Silver Bridge near White Bird. The bridge will be closed between 7 and 10 a.m., and then again from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The bridge will be open before 7 a.m., 10-11 a.m., and after 2 p.m. We are not sure how long the repairs will take, hopefully about one week. Make plans to leave early for work, appointments or anything else you have to do.

TidBits: Here is a nice quote to start the new year: One tree can start a forest; One smile can begin a friendship; One hand can lift a soul; One word can frame a goal; One candle can wipe out darkness; One laugh can conquer gloom; One hope can raise your spirits; One touch can show you care; One life can make the difference, be that One today.
