Ride Idaho is an organization that brings people to Idaho to "tour" Idaho. New Meadows was happy to be chosen as the kick off city for this event this year. Volunteer orga- nizations helped welcome the riders to our beautiful valley. Cyclists stated that they felt quite at home in New Meadows, asked many questions regarding the economy and culture, of which city staffers and others were on hand to answer. By 9:00 AM the Dorsey Wart Memorial Park, where the riders stayed Saturday night, was vacated. Riders were on their way to Whitebird, with some stopping in Riggins to tour the Salmon River area by cycle, jet boat and r.aft. Many of the riders will return on August llth by bus to depart, while oth- ers will fly from Spokane or Boise.

The logs, which were well secured, rolled clear of everything. Responding was Meadows Valley Fire Lt. Doug Buys, Firemen Chris Peterson and Fred Erland, Adams County Sheriff Deputy Ryan Zollman, and ISP Officers Cpl. Craig Boll and Trooper Viclo/MacCarthy. There were no injuries and very little property dam- age. The log trailer had the bunks sheared off, and the reach was definitely broken.
