The Adams County Record Indian Valley & Mesa News I got word that two special people in the valley celebrated birthdays this past week. Happy Birthday wishes to Connie Hornyak and Jay Cheever. Tony and Wanda Morgensen enjoyed a trip to Wyoming to visit Tony's brother, Ed, and many other relatives over the weekend. They traveled to Lyman, WY. The family got together for a huge picnic in the mountains, and they had a wonderful time visiting and meeting many new generations of the family. They returned home, where daughter, Marcia, and grandson, Jesse, were faithfully watching and caring for their home. We have great news for our once injured and now healing ladies of the valley. Joan Lakey has the go ahead from her doctor to start putting weight on her ankle again. Julie Harvey is also beginning her physical therapy on her elbow. Keep up the healing ladies Jim and Lavonne Conner enjoyed a trip to Ontario on Monday, stopping to partake of a delicious luncheon at the Shanghai Restaurant. At home, they have been very good Samaritans, watching and reporting lighting strikes as they see them hit on the surrounding hills and mountains. A good lesson for all of us is to never assume that someone else has called in a sighting of smoke. Larry Boehm and Bey Galloway made a weeklong trip to Seattle. The trip was to attend the wedding for Larry's niece, Kyton Richards. They followed Larry's brother, John Boehm, and his wife, Patty, to seattle. The wedding and reception were a memory to treasure forever. After returning home, it was off to Meridian on Thursday for a doctor's appointment for Bey. Wanna Belle Coriell Wednesday, August 15, 2012 Page 9 You don't need to outrun the bear.... By Lynn Leatherman -- 739-5756 enjoyed a visit from son, Dean, over the weekend. Although the time was short, it was good to see him. Bill and Ruth Reeder enjoyed a visit from cousin, Bob Luglan of New Meadows, on Thursday and shared dinner with him. Sunday evening, they went to Cambridge to share in the continuation of the birthday celebration for great grandson, Ethan Crosby. Doris Baker enjoyed a three-day weekend trip to Twin Falls to visit with daughter, Margaret Watson. While there, her grandson Don and wife, also came to visit, bringing with them their new baby daughter. This makes great grandchild number ten for Doris, and the first girl in eighteen years. On her way home on Monday, Doris stopped in Weiser to visit her friend, Mary Shirt. Jim and Patty Shaw enjoyed a shopping trip to Ontario on Wednesday and dinner at the Shanghai Restaurant. Patty was thrilled to find out she was a winner of one of the raffles held at the open house for The Adams County Health clinic. Judy Green and her friends, Charlie and Carolyn, were out for a walk up Grays Creek on Monday when they came across some bear scat in the middle of the road. Charlie told them a story of meeting up with a bear not too long ago and then told that she has had close ups with bears twelve times over the last eighteen years. This made Judy begin to think that maybe her friend was a bear magnet of some sort and made her a bit nervous. When it was said that you don't have to outrun the bear, just the people you are with, Judy was beginning to think she needs to start practicing to become a sprinter! With friends, Beth Post, Lanae Veselka and Cyndi Bauer, Judy enjoyed a fun time visiting at the home ot; Cathy Veselka during the week. Mary Rininger is quite proud of her four legged lawn mowers that are doing a great job at getting the extended lawn area eaten down. The only problem with this is Mary is finding herself out with a rake and shovel to pick up the freshly left fertilizer. She and Jenny are very thankful for the kindness of their neighbor, Brian Holmes, who came and helped his neighbor ladies move some hay. Robin Juica enjoyeda visit from her dog, Candy's previous parents. They are happy that Candy is in a great home and enjoying the country life. Thursday, Robin and friend, Kendal Doggett, made a trip to Fruitland and Ontario for a fun day out. The Indian Valley Rural Fire Department had a great training day with Idaho Power on Saturday. They received lots of informative information on how to handle situations when power is involved. Ron and Janet Meyer enjoyed the company of friend, Gene Hummer of Kuna, over the weekend. Gene and Roy stayed involved with a project, while Janet kept busy canning salsa and mandarin sauce. Friday night, they sat out and watched the meteor shower. Saturday morning they woke to find a buck sleeping soundly next to the dog kennel, along side the dog. The curious deer stayed to enjoy some tomatoes and peppers from the garden and check out the house. That evening, they decided to watch the showers from the shop where they didn't have any other light distractions, but soon found out that the owls weren't really happy to have them there. Cambridge Senior Chatter Don't drink ditch water by Janice Vuich Cawyer- 257-3358 Can it be that August is almost half gone? It's almost time to start thinking about your Medicare health plan options. Do you go with an Advantage plan or straight Medicare with a supplement? What about prescriptions drug plans? It is always a good idea to review what is available to see if you have the best plan for you. The open enrollment period, when you can make changes to existing plans or change to new ones, is from October 15 through December 7th this year. I'm planning on a "Medicare enrollment fair" on November 16 th, and as soon as I hear back from Colleen VanWinkle from SHIBA, I will let you know the details. Have you noticed all the traffic coming through town lately? I guess the fires in the mountains are making travel on Hwy 55 slow so people are choosing to come up Hwy 95; which is probably good for our local businesses if they stop, but bad for jaywalkers like me. It's been so easy just to pop across the street to Loveland's or the bank because of the lack of traffic, but now, I have to be on my toes and alert to traffic coming in both directions. I guess I could use the crosswalk, but I don't trust driver's to stop just because I'm in it so I still have to watch, besides, I think this heat makes me lazy and I just don't want to expend the energy to walk those few extra steps tO the crosswalk. My goose "Gracie" hatched out 4 baby geese about two and a half weeks ago and they have nearly tripled in size since hatching. Geese are very loyal to each other and those they know. It's fun to watch the geese take care of their young as both parents are very involved and protective of their goslings. "Gracie and Gabby (the gander)" have taken them into the irrigation ditch to swim and eat grass and to add fertilizer for the farmer's crops (A word to the wise, don't be drinking water out of the irrigation ditch). They return each evening to their pen, and I lock them in for the night. I find it's the small things that really give me pleasure anymore. I think the heat may have flied my brain, as I'm having a bad case of writers block today. I guess it's time for me to start carrying around a notepad to jot things down as they float through, otherwise they are lost to the ether of space and time. Until next time when more thoughts are flowing and hopefully the weather is cooler, I hope you are well and happy. And, should you need a cool place to spend the afternoon, come into the senior center; it's pretty comfortable here. Special business sereices aailable a/The Adams Ceun Becerd...
