Fortunately he has plenty of work to do at his home here, so he won't miss Nevada. This beautiful weather had certainly brought out the summer time visitors. Last weekend many were looking for mushrooms, which I understand are great this year. Doug and Emily Smith spent a few days at their summer- time home here, and their home in Payette on they were excited about Sunday. Saturday Ben and finding so many. Oscar, Sam Warner and Martin and Gaye Carter Sarah Stewart spent the also spent a weekend at day fishing in Snake River their place and they had with some luck.

Sauni McGahey drove to Boise on Sunday to spend a week with her granddaughter, Emily McGahey, while her dad is out of town.

Mike and Sarah Bledsoe and children Spent the weekend at their home here. Don Armstrong and Aflen Warner were up to check on the horses at her place, Sunday. Her son, Mark Davis, and his friend, Jake Rupe, hauled them up from Fruitland and turned them in at Aden's.

Zaden was the wonder- child weighing one pound and three ounces at birth. He is now a healthy, twenty-nine pound busy boy. Lowell Tietje and Nan Rankin have remade the walks and lawn in front of their home. They had some of the walks poured, but most of the work has been done by Lowell and Nan, and it really looks nice. Cambridge Senior Chatter All Aboard for Baker Our Taco Feed on Friday was a big success, thanks to the work of our Cambridge Commercial Club. They have organized this event for years, and it has grown into a "big deal" for our local merchants and community groups. The Cambridge Seniors are only one of m/my local non profit and charity groups to benefit from this event. So a big "Thank you" to the Commercial club for all that you do to enrich our lives with activities, but also to bring more people to the area that need goods and services. It's a Win/win for everyone. Many thanks go out to the Council Jammers for putting on another wonderful performance for the benefit of our diners. I never tire of your music and you have only gotten better as the years have gone by. And last, but certainly not least, a huge "Thank you" to our friends and neighbors that continue to support our fundraising efforts. We are glad that you find value in your senior center and the services we offer. It goes without saying that our seniors that provided the labor for this event are my real heros: Dan and Glenda Castleberry, Gary and Lorraine Bonzelet, Bonnie Reinke, Charles Caruso, Ed Hargis and candidate Steve Worthley from district 9A who helped to set up before the dinner. We served over 140 meals in a two hour period and I noticed that you were running your little backsides off, as was I, just to keep up with the flow. If there were medals for this sort of thing, I would make sure that you all got one; you certainly deserve one. Our President, John Atteberry, and I went to a County Commissioners meeting on the twenty- ninth of May, and atthe end of our presentation I invited them to attend our fundraiser. I was pleased to see Dave Springer, who although he didn't win his seat back on the commission, was in attendance with his lovely wife. I wish more local politicians followed his lead. It's disappointing to me that we see so few of our local and state representatives at our regular dinners or fundraising events unless there is an election coming up. I scheduled a trip to Baker, Oregon to go to the interpretive center and museum. We will by ]anice Vuich Cawyer- 257-3358 go the back way th.rough Halfway to get there, and we will return by freeway the same day. There is no charge for the trip if you are a senior or a disabled person or the caregiver to a disabled person. The only costs to you are your entry into the center and museum, and of course lunch! If you have an interest in going with us, please give me a call at 257-3358. There still seems to be some confusion as to the date the Food Pantry is held. It is always on the 4th Thursday of each month. You have to count the number of Thursdays in the month, as in some months there are 5 of them such as we had in May. This month's food pantry is on Thursday, June 28th from 3:00 to 4:30 PM. Due to Pat's work schedule, our foot clinic has been changed to the 4th Monday of each month. June's Foot clinic day will be on Monday, June 25th, With appointments starting at 9:15 a.m. Please call me here at the center (257- 3358) to set up a time for your next appointment. Until next time, I hope you have a great week enjoying these beautiful spring days. Garden Corner Seen on my walk: As pair of black birds dive- I stepped out the back bombing it in the butt. door three owls gave a Herons are such weird whooo and took flight and wonderful birds, from roof top to tree graceful in an awkward top. On the hillsides way, like a cross between the wild currant fruits are turning orange, the grasses are going from green to red and brown, the lupine blossoms are spent and seed pods are being formed, and new types of wildflowers are emerging. A great blue heron landed in a pasture and was immediately harried out again by a a swan and a pterodactyl. In my yard the peonies and roses are in full aromatic bloom, as are the black locust trees. It smells wonderful' outside, especially this morning after last night's thunderstorm. You may recall that I received some ninebark twigs to play with to VRS AUTO GLASS VALLEY REPAIRS & SERVICES Windshield Repairs & Replacements "We will come to you'" Most Comprehensive Insurance pays 100% of Chip Repair Brian & Cyndi Dunham Bauer ,Indian Valley, Idaho (208) 256-4315 ]E Love June By Myrna Weikal -- 355-5829 - try to start new plants. Thirty-six twigs sprouted roots and leaves. I potted them all, but only four remain; the rest succumbed to poor handling. I take the blame. I skipped a step - the part where they were supposed to stay in the growing medium - and moved them directly into garden soil. My soil has a high clay content, and their roots just couldn't penetrate it. I'm trying to remediate the situation, but it might be too late. I dare say Peg Tiedemann might be convinced to let me try again, if I promise to take better care next time. Ninebark is a really beautiful shrub with leaves of a bronze/green/ red color combination. It is drought-hardy, suited to our climate zone, and theoretically easy to start from hardwood cuttings, if a person is able to follow the directions. The wind has effectively thinned my apricot trees, but I'm going to need to thin the apples" and pears by hand. I'm told that to get the best size and quality there should be a fist's distance between each fruit. I use a scissors to cut away the excess fruit, rather than pulling on them, which tends to break off fruit spurs. Two of my trees are dwarfs, but the other two are going to require a ladder. I'm not sure I will risk my neck to get the highest apples - after all, the birds deserve fresh fruit, too. I also need to thin lettuce and radish seedlings, and deadhead the snowball and lilac bushes. There's no end of garden tasks to keep me busy. Isn't it great? I love June. Better late than never, Kalyn Hochstrat and I planted the community garden in pumpkins, corn, sunflowers, beans and zucchini. We had a terrible problem with weeds last year and no spare time to deal with them. This year we laid weed-block fabric first. In a couple Place s we planted the three sisters, Native American method: corn, pole beans which climb the corn, pumpkins to shade the ground and keep the weeds and water-loss down. The community garden is a continual learning experience. We welcome anyone who's interested in helping to join our efforts. In fact, I'd go so far as to say we plead for your help. I'm still hoping for help with the ant question; too. And what's with ants and peonies, does anyone know?
