But waitT Don't forget the fishing tackle and ammunition. Meet Jessi Martin, the new Customer Service Specialist/ Office Assistant for New Meadows City Hall, who has been greeting callers, answering questions, and collecting payments since February 8. Barely 30, pretty and deceptively petite (5'), Jessi warms the office and ith graciousness' a'.ller intelligence. A rare So phenomenon, a truly racked happy person, she also three matches outdoor stories one elk her dad's backhoe to positioning pinkish petals. She's the oldest of three girls, and dad made sure they all took hunter safety and knew how to use a gun. Her dad and his long time friend Ed Levitt took her hunting at age 12, and Jessi wasted no time learning the sport. After ......... a frustrating ........ day missing elk, she charged out through the mountains a up deer, and with the best. She came to New Meadows three years ago for all the good reasons: love, hunting, and fishing. Work hasn't been easy to come by since she left her chiropractic assistant job in Boise, but she'd gained good skills with Brundage human resources, and is thrilled with her new community role. Growing up in Kuna, where both her parents own their own businesses, she learned to appreciate a small town atmosphere. Her parents gave up their Lakeview home when Jessi was 3 to make a better living for their children. Dad, Curtis, runs excavation equipment, and her mom Adele owns a flower shop. Morn tried to teach Jessi floral arrangements, but she quickly turned that apprentic.eship over to Jessi's younger sister Amy. Jessi much preferred driving a mountain lion. Another good story, the mountain lion hunt, started with her snowmobiling through deep snow (with dad and Ed again), where she gracefully managed to crash into Ed's snowmobile several times while watchin for cougar tracks. While she waited at its most recent kill, the cat circled around behind her into the trees. She took it down with a 357 pistol. Packing it out on foot through waist high snow posed some serious challenge, but she managed it nonetheless. She shot her 6x6 bull elk on the South Fork after packing in on horseback. "It came running in fast and mad," she remembered. Steelhead fishing started Her parents' big family a few years ago, and she spread all over Treasure loves it.

"Macky's all boy, rough and tough," Jessi explained. Like her, Macky loves camping and exploring outdoors. Jessi laughed as she relayed Macky's description of the "beaver dammit" he'd recently seen. "They pick up so much from adults that you don't think about, and their imaginations are incredible. It's a treat teaching them new things as they get older," she smiled. Bodie seems much more cautious, still working on his first baby steps. She and Willy look forward to building a house in the trees someday so the boys can build forts, dig for worms and ride their wheels. Her tears rambunctious sports in years ago.

"I don't know what I would do without them," she cried. "They would Just do anything for us." The Gregersens, Willy's parents Bill and Donna Brown, and many others had all stepped in to help during her pregnancy complications, and again when she lost her job last winter. She marvels at her experience with City Hall. "I am learning so much. A great deal of effort goes into making the city function that you just don't know." She works with the mayor, 4 city council members, the clerk/ treasurer, a public works supervisor, an animal control officer, and the entire populace of the city. She's just beginning to realize how complicated it all is, how money is spent and how the budget works. She gained a real appreciation of: rth commanlty's abllity, r,tO pull together last week. After the heavy snowmelt and rain, water flooded down city streets, knee deep behind Granite Mountain Cafe, with South End Road and other routes drowning. The mayor met with council members Friday morning at 1:30 am, and again at 9:30 for emergency planning. Soon, 40 volunteers showed up for two days' hard work in the pouring rain, filling sand bags, digging out the city culvert, and clearing pathways. "It was amazing," she said. "Some of those people didn't even live in the city." For her future, she'd like her family to go lots of new places, especially the coast. She's already traveled to Hawaii and Mazatlan, Mexico; and gone hunting on a float trip in Fairbanks, Alaska. And her immediate plans for fun and success? "I can't wait for this weekend's steelhead fishing," she beamed.
