Trick-or-treaters at the Free Press

Only three trick-or-treaters donned their Halloween garb and trick-or-treated at the Idaho County Free Press this year. They are (L-R) Lilly, McKinley and Haylee Kaschmitter, daughters of Zach and Shayla Kaschmitter. Their mom just happens to be employed at the Free Press.

For those who have been concerned about the trees cut down at Grangeville’s Pioneer Park, know there were several (I counted six) dying locust trees so the city had Avista’s assistance in removing them.

Also note that Grangeville’s Winter Magic Tree Lighting and the Border Days Royalty Lighted Parade are set for Saturday, Nov. 30. A wrong date was listed earlier.

Avista will be having outages in November. Both outages are estimated to take hours, between 4 and 8 a.m., both on Sundays, Nov. 10 and 17. Everyone who feeds out of the Grangeville Substation will experience these outages (Grangeville, Elk City, Red River, Dixie, etc. These are unavoidable and critical to the Grangeville Substation.

Note from Grangeville resident Barb Henderson: If you get a check from National Breast Cancer Research Center telling you that you can cash the check and/or send it back with a $10 donation, don’t do it. Barb called and found out this is not legitimate. Just tear it up and throw it away!
