Support Grangeville Farmers’ Market, Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Pioneer Park. The market will continue through Oct 3. Did you know the terms herb and spice are often used interchangeably, but are in fact two distinct types of seasonings, made from different parts of plants and processed in different ways? Spices are made from the aromatic seeds, bark, flowers and roots of plants that have been dried and crushed and tend to be stronger in flavor than herbs. Herbs are leaves, and although most common from non-woody plants, a few do come from woody plants. Cinnamon would be an example of a spice, while basil, rosemary, parsley and oregano would be considered herbs.
A canine vaccine clinic will be held Friday, Sept. 11, 9 a.m. to noon, with Housecall Vet Dr. Kim Wolfrum. This will take place in the parking lot of the upcoming Tolo Veterinary Clinic located at 83 U.S. Highway 95 N. (former soil conservation offices).
Costs are rabies: $15; 5-way: $16; Lepto w/5way: $20; and Lepto: $15.
This is just for vaccines, not any other health issues, and is for dogs only. Bring dogs on a leash, and if they have never been vaccinated, minimize outdoor exposure while on the premises.

I want to give a shoutout to Ryan Beckman at Grangeville Health and Rehabilitation. I have observed him with the residents many times and I am always impressed at how he interacts with them. He treats them like family. I was humbled by his patience last week when Frances Phillips celebrated her 100th birthday. He not only visited with her and made sure she was comfortable and enjoying herself, but also patiently assisted her in opening her gifts and read all her birthday cards aloud to her. He was gentle and genuine, a calming presence in uncertain times.
