Lorie Palmer and her brothers Steve and Dave

Here I am, a rose between two thorns, with my brothers: (L-R) Steve, Lorie, Dave, and that’s our new dog, Boone.

Do you have a hankering to play some pinochle? What about cribbage? Well, look no further than the Grangeville Senior Citizens Center. You can join in these games each Monday, Wednesday and Friday, following the noon meal.


FYI: Trick-or-treaters are invited to stop by Grangeville Health and Rehabilitation from 3 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 31, to show off their costumes and receive treats.


Thanks to everyone at Syringa Hospital who helped Valor. He had to have treatments for an infection and spent quite a bit of time at the hospital for a couple of weeks. Everyone was great, however, not to mention any names (Kim Spencer!) he did have his favorites. He’s feeling better and things are a bit more normal – if that’s a thing! My brother, Dave, sister-in-law, Tina, and nephew, Justin, from Lynden, Wash., as well as our aunt and uncle from Post Falls, visited two weekends ago and we had a wonderful time. Thanks to Grangeville Super 8, Pizza Factory and The Depot for the hospitality and great food. We spent a lot of time visiting and laughing. It was a fun time.


Now, thanks to a lot of local apples and some from my brother in Washington, I’m knee deep in freezing and drying apples. Also, pears from Lenora Akin (Lenora’s Custom Cabinets) are also in the food dehydrator and they are quite tasty.


We at the Free Press offer our deepest condolences to the Hauger Family (Lucky Star Satellite) regarding the loss of their daughter, Katie. There are no words to express the sorrow.
