The Adams County Record Wednesday, February 15, 2012 , ,, p Htston00 s ,)f New Mea00!00)ws Buildings- Part I .... Several years ago, some of the New Meadows folks compiled a drawing and histories of the building lots there. They did all the footwork; I just redrew the map and typed up what they had written. All of the information will take more than one column to include, so this will be part one. The information here was gathered in 2006 and some of it is out of date, as far as the present buildings and/ or usage and owners. The numbers on the map correspond to the numbers below. 1--Kenny Johnson Gas Station. Subsequent owners: Marty McCarty, Vince Barras, Ron Rookstool. The station was torn down, and David Kellogg built a new building, about 1997, called the "Turning Point." As of 2006: gas station, convenience store, A&amp;W drive in. 2--Two apartments that were joined together with two garage spaces in the center. They were torn down when Marty McCarty remodeled the station in the late 1960s--about '66-'68. 3--The Dorsey Warr house. Torn down in the mid 1990s and an office building was built called the Dorsey Warr Building. 4--Gift shop that belonged to Nell Irwin (married Gordon MacGregor).

After LaFay, it was owned and operated by Alice Widner. It was remodeled by Dr. Randy Fellman and now is the Meadows Valley Clinic. 7--Earl Watkins' parents built a restaurant here. They sold it, and the Post Office and medical clinic (1950s). The clinic moved across the street in 1959 into a new apartment building (#27) Later remodeled and became the Kahili Club bar. 8--Clarence and Fannle LaFay built a small barbershop here in 1920. They ran it for a short time and lived in the back part of the building.

He was the caretaker for the cemetery, a job later held by Dorsey Warr and then Boyd Moore. For a short time in the 1930s this building was used as a gym where basketball was played, but it proved to be too small a space. When the show hall (LaFay's, #24) was built, basket ball games were moved there because it was big enough to allow spectators.

Overwinter survival is likely but not certain." and swooping -- winter must be in retreat, not that it was much of a winter anyway. We got off pretty easy this year. So, it is time to think about what seeds to start indoors. According to my Territorial seed catalog, I should have started my artichoke seeds by now. They recommend starting them in late January to early February. Oh, well. Today will do. Here's what the catalog says about artichokes: "Sow seeds i/ inch deep in 4 inch pots...expect 70% Council Valley Free Library_ Book Shelf leave them for a few years, on the off chance that they survive your winter. I did as the catalog suggests last fall, cutting back and mulching, plus covering with several layers of ground cloth. I'll let you know in April how things tum out. This was probably as good a winter for success as any we've had since we moved here. Those of you in lower Washington County can expect spring to arrive at least two weeks ahead of us upper country gardeners, but in any case, even ff you start things a little too early your plants can spend an extra week hardening off or in a cold frame or under a hot cap. You can start your broccoli, kale and leeks indoors now, all cool weather plants. I planted kale in late summer last year. but it was devoured by grasshoppers before I could harvest any of it.

It was not like any I'd ever seen before, looking like a cross, between a tttrbaxt::, sqiatlsh' and a banana squash. I asked her what kind it was, and she said, "It's a Hopper squash." They've been saving and replanting seeds for years. The parentage is unknown, but the offspring are delicious. In March you can start cauliflower, peppers and tomatoes, just to give you a "heads up" on it. John of Weiser Garden Club, Brussels Sprout Expert, will you ,please write and tell me how and when to get them started? Glenda Castleberry shared this pest control success story: "I saw that you were still in quest of something to squash the squash bugs. Last year I tried a new approach for me. In the spring JoAnne's had a great sale on tulle, so I bought several yards of it and used it as a floating cover.

Here is the relevant Idaho Code: 25-2806 Liability for livestock and poultry killed by dogs. The owner, possessor, or harborer of any dog or animal that kills, worries, or wounds any livestock and poultry which are raised and kept in captivity for domestic or commercial purposes, is liable to the owner of the same for the damages and costs of suit, to be recovered before any court of competent jurisdiction: 1. In the prosecution of actions under the provisions of this section it is not necessary for the plaintiff to show that the owner, possessor, or harborer of such dog or other animal had knowledge of the fact that such dog or other animal would kill or wound livestock or poultry which are raised and kept in captivity for the premises of its owner or possessor, worrying, wounding, or killing any livestock or poultry which are raised and kept in captivity for domestic or commercial purposes, may, at the time of so finding said dog, kill the same, and the owners thereof can sustain no action for damages against any person so killing such dog. Note that "kept in captivity" does necessarily mean inside of a building or pen; it could mean in a large pasture, etc. Some people are more forgiving than others and may contact authorities before taking things into their own hands. But others don't hesitate to shoot a dog that they perceive as having a negative effect on their livestock, so it would be prudent for owners to keep track of their dogs. A similar law applies to dogs who harass or harm wildlife.
