Not much progress on ttte new Fire / EMS building.., yet It is July 15 and Smokey stated that the Fire Danger dropped to Low during the cooler weather but has returned to Moderate. Remember to talk to your local Forest Service before you go into our national forests for recreation to get any local restrictions. This week was sort of a mixed bag. Friday Council Ambulance started things off with a call. On " Saturday, New Meadows Ambulance had their lone call for the week. Sunday morning, Indian Valley Fire Department was paged to a residence in Mesa with a report of smoke coming from the attic. It turned out to be a swarm of insects. I guess they were just bugging someone. Har har. The Tip of the Week: Since a lot of people are traveling this summer, lets review a couple of good driving tips: Insist that everyone in your car wear a seatbelt. Idaho law has changed and you can be stopped for not wearing a seat- belt. So wear one even on short drives in town, I have been looking for a seatbelt for my own car but have not been able to find one. I guess my car will not be able to buckle up. Always drive defensively. Remember you may know what you are doing but does the other driver? Stay alert. Remember to take frequent breaks. It is better to get where you are going a little late than not get there at a]ll. For safety's sake, pull off the road and stop your vehicle if you are driving and want to use a cellular phone. It is painful to have a phone pulled out of your ear after a sudden stop. Avoid being a victim of road rage. Let irate drivers pass, Did You Xnow? "TWo bits (25 cents) four bits (50 cents), six bits (75 cents), and a dollar." This old rhyme has to do with the coin pirates called Pieces of Eight, or Spanish dollars. This coin was common tender in colonial America and even up to just before the American Civil War. It was probably the coin George Washington was accused of throw- ing across the Delaware River. I don't know about G.W, but I do know that the Spanish silver dollar or piece of eight was considered the primary currency Still plenty of time left to turn reading into prizes Last week's winners of the Summer Reading Program prize draw- ing were Caitlin . Hill, Maddie Herald, and Kody Cleaver. They won tickets to the Linder Farm Corn Maze and the Discovery Center. Summer Reading Page 7 by Charles Pfenninger for quite a long while. Anyhow, two bits, four bits, six bits a dollar, all for lots of money, stand up and holler. I wish a dollar would buy as much now as it did back then also. Comments: Still no progress on the new building. I will be glad when we can move into it. I am getting tired of having to tell people to move, when they park trucks and trailers in front of the current fire- house, so that they can go into a caf6 or bar and get something to eat or drink. I know the "NO PARKING" signs are not very big, but you would think that.the sign that says "COUNCIL FIRE DEPARTMENT" would be a clue not to park in front of that building. I guess I expect too much from peoplel Sorry to disappoint people, but I have been unable to leave my wife anywhere lately. I have been on the disabled list for the last week and she tied a rope to my ankle to make sure that I couldn't get more that a few feet away from her. She wanted to make sure I didn't respond to any of the calls, She forgot that I carry a knife. Well that's all for this week, have fun at what you are doing but most important BE SAFE.
