The name, Idaho's Heartland, Inc. was selected and by-laws were finalized. The corporation's objective is to promote recognition of the heartland area of Idaho as a vacation, convention and travel designation; to aid in the development of programs and disbursements of funds; to accomplish this objective. Each of the seven areas of Heartland, Inc., Cambridge, Cascade, Council, Donnelly, McCall, New Meadows and Riggins, designates a representative to attend meetings as a voting member. Ron Dean Is Coun- cil's representative and Bill Sikes represents Cambridge, but since Cambridge does not have a Chamber of Commerce, he is under Council's aegis. Ron Dean has been asked to serve as vice-president. Dale Blunk of McCall is the Chairman. The corporation is putting together a brochure covering the area. The rough sketches will be ready for the Sep- tember meeting. Heartland, Inc. meets the fourth Tuesday of every month in New Meadows. However. the Sep- tember 25th meeting is special, and will be held at Kimberland Meadows. Businesses and members of local Chambers are invited. The brochure will have slip pockets on the back page to hold area business cards. Interested businesses are asked to attend this special September meeting. The brochures are being designed by Archie Breediove of McCall. Each area is requested to furnish a list of special events and haptnings (such as the 4th of July celebration here in Council) to be included in the brochure. Norm Walker reported on the Fair. He said the entries were down because of the weather, but the 4-H exhibits were equal to last year. The Fairgrounds are cleaned up. This year monies for the 4-H trophies were by donation, the response was very good. Mr. Walker briefly touched on the grasshopper crisis. It is really too late this year to do much about the problem, but because it is so serious, attention ts called for next year. The best time to kill grasshoppers is when they are in the ntnnph stage, before they begin laying eggs. Clint Yates asked if this wasn't a cyclical problem. Mr. Walker replied, yes, in a way, but this year's weather conditions was the main reason for the grasshopper population explosion. Further, if we have another winter and spring like this year's, next year's problem will be even worse. It was also brought out that spraying can kill bees. and other good insects. Plus there are people who are allergic to malathion. There is a small amount of malathion available to Adams County, but first the County Com- missioners would have to assume all liability for the killing of bees and other hazards. Mr. Walker said that because of the County's current financial crunch, he didn't see the Com- missioners assuming liability, though he feels they" probably will declare a state of emergency. In addition, someone would have to decide who receives the malathion. since the amount is limited. A fair and equitable distribution which would be effective, would be very difficult. 66 ,99 Edmunson cops Outstanding Plal,q;n title "He came to play," "What a catch for and hot throughout the camp but it was coach-player association with Clete ISU," "And to think he came  of a all worth it when we won the game.

This year's fair budget will just cover incurred expenses. Trophies for the 4-H winners were donated this year. In the past, they were purchased from the fair budget. In checking with other coun- ties. Norm Walker found that there are several counties that don't fund the trophies, just the premiums. The proected funds available in revenue sharing are up this year. The 1984-8-5 fair budget is tentatively set for $2,500.00. That is enough to run a fair but not to enact needed repairs or improvements on the grounds. The Commissioners will try to allot the Fair Board additional funds for repairs. The number one priority is to complete the electrical work. The second is to set the scales on cement, also the roof needs to be repaired. Sadly, there are recurring expenses each year created by vandals. The County Commissioners have always supported the Fair Board; the cuts in this year's budget were a result of a shortage of funds. The cuts were countywide in all departments. --Support of New Meadows Planning & ning; --Building signs to welcome visitors to the valley; --Promotion of area businesses: --Work with the Chamber's coalition.
