Page 20 Wednesday, August 8, 2012 le Adams County Record This week's picture was taken by Helen Glidden. No clues this time. Get your answers in by 4:00 on Monday: 253-6961 or record@ctcweb.net. Last week's photo showed the Highway 95 bridge over the Weiser River just above where the East Fork.joins the main river. Like the buildings of its era, this 1939 bridge has a little more style than the ones they build today. It was part of rerouting the highway from what is now the Fruitvale -Glendale Road (which meets the highway just a few feet from the bridge) to its present route. People thought the Highway Department was crazy to build the new route over Fort Hall Hill instead of keeping the "water grade" route, but it was completed ir/ 1938. As I said in my Landmarks book: "qqae route was not used for through travel for another two years, q-he new road came to a dead end, as there was no bridge over the river just north of East Fork until December of 1939. 4 The sign on the railing of the Weiser River Trail trestle that is almost underneath the Highway 95 bridge. Even after the bridge was finished, much of the new road was closed to traffic until it was paved in the summer of 1940." Out of 14 correct answers, the winner drawn from the hat was Garrett Knight of Cambridge. Garrett needs someone to take his prize to the Cambridge Senior Center for him, so if anybody is going down that way please stop by the Record office and pick it up for him. The prize is a nice jar of Oregon Grape Salve from D&L Herbs of Council. OK, a couple weeks ago I did it again.

The USDA has since removed the newsletter from its website, but the issue remains as to whether the USDA believes the discouragement of meat consumption in their facilities reflects the values of the Department and if thos values support America sfarmers and ranchers.
