Have you heard the news? Camas Farms, right here on the prairie, has farm fresh eggs on the shelf at Cash & Carry Market in Grangeville.

The Grangeville Post Office will once again be conducting its annual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive this coming Saturday May 14. The National Association of Letter Carriers currently holds the “record to beat” from 2011 for the largest one-day food drive in the world, according to Guinness World Records. They are hoping to set a new world record by breaking the old one. You can help by placing your nonperishable food donations by your mailboxes before your mail is delivered on Saturday. Your carrier will pick it up and deliver it to the Camas Prairie Food Bank. Those with P.O. boxes or who may be gone for that day may bring their donations into the post office at any time beforehand. Questions? Call the post office at 983-1270.

The Grangeville Elementary Middle School PTA would like to send a huge thanks to Green Acres Nursery, Crema Cafe, Polish”d” nails, and the parents of GEMS students for their donations and discounts to help make Teacher Appreciation Week last week a huge success!

Cindy Nelson will host a free hormone balancing workshop for men and women of all ages Saturday, May 14, 1-4 p.m. Learn to heal your body through food, supplements and essential oils. Come to Highway 7, turn at the green shop past Country Court, end of the drive. RSVP to Nelson at 507-0541.

Thanks to the Free Press’ Andrew Ottoson for this news: As those who attended the rodeo last weekend no doubt heard from the arena announcer, the Seven Devils Steakhouse and Saloon has resumed selling liquor by the drink. The state agency that regulates the alcohol trade in Idaho, the Alcohol Beverage Control, reissued the Seven Devils Bar license last Friday morning, May 6, and sales resumed later that day. David Claiborne, attorney for Michael and Melissa Blimka and Camarie Thomas, described the resolution as a “generous” effort on the part of all sides, with the result that John Belton is back in business.

It was a beautiful Riggins Rodeo weekend! Hailey and I had the chance to patronize many local businesses, starting with River Rock Café (awesome homemade hash browns and gravy!) and Salmon Rapids Lodge where we got our parking permits (they were very nice to work with!). Everyone at the rodeo was nice, especially the ticket takers and T-shirt sellers, and the royalty – Queen Macenzie Farris and Princess Emily Diaz – did a great job and worked really hard. It was great to see grand marshals and longtime volunteers Buck and Jeannie Fitch, and we had a chance to visit Two Rivers Coffee Roasters for good drinks and conversation, too! It was Kate’s Cattleman’s Restaurant that pulled me out of a heat-induced stupor with two tall, black iced-teas with lemon and a sandwich. They stayed open a little longer to serve us and Kate and crew were great. They even gave me a Mother’s Day plant. We also visited The Tourist Trap and Idaho Banana Company to make it a wrap for one rodeo and parade-filled weekend. Thanks to Joe and Maggie Chmelik, Amy Farris and Anna Wren for their help and generosity!  • If you’re not busy Saturday, stop at Grangeville High School, 5 p.m., for Shirley’s Dance Studio’s recital. Senior Hailey Uhlenkott will be featured.
