The Adams County Record Secure Rural School Wednesday, March 14, 2012 COHHUNfTY Extension Approved Extension of county payments approved in highway bill amendment From the office of Senator Mike Crape U.S. Senate overwhelmingly approved an amendment today that extends federal payments to counties with large tracts of federal land in order to compensate for the loss in revenue from timber and local property taxes. The Secure Rural Schools (SRS) 'and Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) amendment to the highway bill was offered by Senator Max Baucus (D-Montana) and co-sponsored by Idaho Senators Mike Crape and Jim Risch. The 82 to 16 vote to include county payments in the transportation legislation is a strong indication that Senators approve continuing the payments to counties where federal land ownership limits that local tax base. That tax revenue is critical for counties to operate local schools, provide law enforcement and maintain roads, bridges and other projects. "We were able to find the necessary funding from other projects in order to continue this critical funding source for Idaho's schools and roads," Crape said. "It is important that a large, bipartisan coalition of Senators continues to understand that the federal government should compensate local government for the fact the federal government pays no taxes on the property it owns." "While I would have preferred a longer term fix to provide more certainty to the entities that rely on this funding, this does provide a remedy for now," said Risch. "Until the timber revenues from our National Forests increase and refill the 25-percent fund, the federal government must maintain this lifeline to our rural schools and counties." The county payments amendment relies on offsets from tobacco programs and insurance policy sales. The overall transportation measure that now includes the county payments amendment may see a final vote next week. The original county payments bills have been extended several times since the passage of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act of 2000.

Idaho County received the largest by Wayne Freedman county portion at In a devotional last $7,693,842. week, I read about Agnes Bojaxhiu, who died Adams County Republican Presidential Caucus Results in 1997, and was one of the most influential persons of her time. She was so, because she was so passionate about her beliefs that her life became an articulate expression of her faith. She loved life and so hated abortion; that even when called to speak to a predominantly American audience, "she strongly criticized the policy. When asked to comment on her remarks, President Bill Clinton only noted, "Who can argue with a life so well-lived?" Yet, Agnes Bojaxhiu was privately racked by an emotional vacuum in her relationship with God. In some of her writings, by Dale Fisk The Adams County Republican presidential caucus was well-attended last Tuesday night, with 76 participants in New Meadows and 163 at Council. Mitt Romney received the county's highest number of votes. Somewhere along the line, three tokens came up missing. Tokens are now worth at least $5, as that is the price at which they have been selling. The money goes to the Adams County Republican Committee. The first round of voting went as follows: Candidate New Meadows Council Total Newt Gingrich 7 12 19 Ron Paul 28 47 75 Buddy Roemer 0 1 i Mitt Romney 26 64 90 Rick Santorum 15 39 54 Since no candidate received more than 50% of the vote, the two candidates receiving the lowest number of votes were eliminated. Second round: ,%... .  ................ Candidate New Meadows Council Total Ron Paul. 28 41 69 Mitt R0miiey 28 72 100 Rick Santorum 20 43 63 published posthumously, she is quoted as saying: "Such deep longing for God--and...repulsed, empty,, no faith, no love, no zeal." Ordinarily, this would not be anything noteworthy, as many would privately disclose that we, too, have been troubled by doubt. But the world looks back at the legacy of Agnes Bojaxhiu, who was better known as Mother Teresa, and there are many questions that this honesty about her lack of faith raises. What does it mean to lack faith? It means we're missing a feeling of trust in God. Doubt is an emotion and we all know that emotions can change but somehow we get the idea that faith should never falter, but it can and it does Is doubt then a sign that faith is futile? Absolutely not! The object of our faith doesn't change, for scripture clearly says He is "the same yesterday, today and forever." [Hebrews 13:8] Not only is He the object of our faith, but in an earlier chapter In the same book, Christ is described as "the Author and Finisher of our faith." [Heb. 12:2]. In other words, He is the Source and the One responsible to bring it to completion so that we don't have any lack in our faith when we go into eternity. So when I have a "Lack of Faith" it simply means He is not Finished with me yet, I'm still a work In progress. Since no candidate received more than 50% of the vote, the candidate with the lowest number of votes was eliminated.
