The Adams County Record Cambridge Senior Chatter Wednesday, June 5, 2013 Page 5 Walking with others -- a great motivator by ]anice Vuich Cawyer- 257-3358 I've hardly had a minute to catch my breath since Friday when we had our 'Zll you can eat Taco Feed 7 I think we served some- where in the neighborhood of 156 dinners. This was one our most successful Taco Feeds in a long time, and I would like to thank an of you who showed up to support the senior center. Another "Thank You" goes out to our vol- unteers who helped chop up the vegetables, kept the bowls full, served deserts, and cleaned up afterwards. .They are in no particular order: Sharon Jones, Paul Radasch, Jack and Elsie Coburn, Glenda and Dan Castleberry, Ed Ha?gis, Shirley Atteberry, Patty Heldt, Laurel Sherman, Lola Ader, Sheila Zundel and Beth Bramble. If I missed you, please accept my apology in advance; I seem to have lost my list of volunteers and rm just try- ing to remember them as I visualize their faces. Let me know of my oversight, as I really do want to recognize your efforts. I work on the week- ends, so I wasn't able to attend any of the doings about town on Saturday, and I think I missed out. There seemed to be many more yard sales and ven- dors this year than in the past, or at least that was my impression. We have such a wonderful organi- zation in Cambridge, the Commercial Club which is responsible for put- ting on these events that benefit the entire com- munity. I really appreciate their efforts on behalf of all Cambridge businesses. You are the unsung hero's behind these events. I apologize for put- ting the wrong menu in last week's paper. We had roast beef on Wednesday, not Pork Chops. I have double-checked and this week's menu is correct, so rest assured that you will be having what is being printed. I overslept this morn- ing, so missed the stretch- ing part of our exercise class, but I did walk down to milepost 39 and back on the trail. If you haven't started exercising this year, why not come and join us. You can walk at your own pace and go as far as you want to go. Walking with others is a great way to keep you motivated, because even when you don't feel like it, you know that oth- ers are waiting for you, so you push yourself to go and you usually feel better for it. We meet at 9:00 AM at the senior center, and you don't have to be a senior to join us; all ages are welcome. I hope you have a great week; the weather seems to be conducive to lots of activities in the great out- doors. Until next time, keep smiling and remember the sunscreen. Editor's Notebook We can do better thel00 southern entrance to Council reads, "The Community That Cares: And there have been times when this community really has pulled together. It's time to do it again. Council's economy is about as bad as I've ever seen it. Historically, I think it's about as bad as it has ever been. From the ini- tial boom of the settlement, the mining boom, the fruit industry boom, the tim- ber boom -- one followed closely behind the other, leaving no prolonged peri- ods of economic drought. q-he next boom is nowhere in sight. There are several things we can do to improve our situation. I've never been an advocate of growth for growths sake. An increase in population does not mean a better economy; in fact it's often the oppo- site. But we need to make our com- munity inviting to anyone who could create jobs here. The recent grant received from the Jeff Tunison Community Fund is enabling a step in the right direction. Attractive Welcome To Council signs will soon be erected on each end of town. A kiosk is going up at the airport. A web developer has been hired for Council's new web site, CouncilIdaho. org, and it will soon go on line with a directory of businesses, artists, clubs, churches, etc., plus much more to promote Council. Recently the City of Council started enforc- ing its ordinances about unkempt properties in town, requiring people to make their places look presentable, clean up trash, remove abandoned vehi- cles, etc. To some, this is an infringement on their freedom to do whatever they please with their own property. To many oth- ers, it's about time. Adams County has the highest unemployment in the state, but poor does not equal dirty, trashy and ugly. Help needed There are at least two rarities in Council that help the economy and need more community support. The Thrifty Shoppe pumps thousands of dol- lars into our community each year, plus it provides a low-cost source of a vari- ety of items for local folks. The Shoppe is having a very hard time finding enough volunteers. The Council Valley Museum just started its open season With a very disappointing weekend. After several people put in nearly 300 hours of their time; after spending sev- eral thousand dollars of donated museum money on remodeling and adver- tising a "grand opening" for the museum's new exhibit space on Saturday... the big day came, but there was no one to host the museum. Jim Camp has been calling people, trying to find peo- ple to watch the museum, but has had mixed results. Few people want to com- mit. Our museum is one of the best small museums in the Northwest and could be a major asset to Council, attracting tour- ists to stop in town and leave a few dollars. From now until Labor Day Weekend in September, the museum is in desper- ate need of people to host Council High School Honor Roll 4.0 Azucena Meza, Lance Bella Ludwig, Jordan Savannah Schaffer, Caleb Clay Allred, Cory Allred, Nichols, Kelli O'Connor, Rosengrant, Ryan Shumway, Jac Cook, Chloe Bryson, David Sierra Shankel, Morgan Rosengrant, Abbey Shania Spharler, Britni Byers, Kynlee Chandler, Shumway, Courtney Roundtree, Chloe Colyer, Lucas Daniels, Sharah Cook, Casey Stanford, Zoe Wessels.

It's an easy "job" that mostly entails just being there. If this really is the com- munity that cares, more people need to care enough to pitch in and help. The same few people seem to serve on several committees and help with various projects. They are spread thin, and often feel burned out. In this community where so many people are retired and so many are unem- ployed, it shouldn't be so hard to find people who care enough to help make Council a better place to live.
