White Bird News: Deer gather for snacks at Gortsema home

Well, it’s December, along with the town being decorated for the Christmas holiday, we have had an even bigger problem to contend with. That’s right, no water within the city limits. As of this writing on Sunday, they still didn’t have the problem solved. They have been trucking in bottled water to whoever needs it and a portable water truck was coming in to help fill the storage tanks. Many volunteers have helped from near and far. If you need anything you are to call city hall at 208-839-2294 or Sandy at home at 208-839-2239. Swiftwater RV has opened their showers up to the ones who would like a hot shower – thanks Anna as this is greatly appreciated!

Lowell / Syringa News: EMT party ‘best ever’

Did you know they have an advertisement this year for “hands free TV”? You can sit in your recliner, just say “Dr Phil”, and the TV will go on, and find Dr. Phil, and there you go! You don’t have to go to the trouble of picking up your remote and pressing a button, let alone actually stand up and press a button on the actual TV, nope those days are over. Life is getting easier, sure glad I’m still alive to see this wonderful invention.

Riggins News: Vander Esch is Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year

My quote for this week is “I admire people who always show kindness and help people, no matter if they’re struggling with their own problems. They are truly a gift to this world.” Anonymous. ‘Tis the season to show kindness, compassion, love, and friendship to everyone; we never know the struggles of others. A smile or a kind word may be just the thing that person needs.

Lowell / Syringa News: QRU party set for this Saturday, Dec. 2

Cyber Monday, Black Friday, fast life in the shopping lane goes by and we aren’t on it. On Friday I was too full to move, and I wasn’t about to leave the leftover pies unguarded. On Saturday it was football, football, football. Sunday it was cleanup and say goodbye to company, and Cyber Monday the Internet crashed. This country living isn’t always compatible with the modern living that goes on all around us.
