Page 2 Wednesday, September 19, 2012 The Adams County Record Adams County Commissioners Continued from front page Get out and vote Dear Editor, A call to arms: "Onward Christian sol- diers, marching as to war." Which war? It is the war on personal freedom and religious rights. The only way to win this war is to conquer apathy. I was shocked when reading an article, quote, "Seventy-five percent of American citizens who attend church do not vote. That's 21 million people! Fifty percent of America's Christians are registered to vote. That means that 50 percent are not! Did you know that in the last six presi- dential races, each newly elected president won by a margin of 10 million votes? So, if our missing 21 million would show up at the polls, send in absentee ballots, and vote early, we could win this war on apathy and claim America back for her good and ours." End of quote. What can we do? Glad you asked. We must influence our friends and neighbors to take a few minutes to go and regis- ter, and then get out and vote at election time. Christians, wake up and stand up for America! Encourage oth- ers to do the same. Our country is in a crisis situ- ation. She desperately needs, you now! Dear Editor, Meadows Valley "School would like to acknowledgeand thank Becki Levi of New Meadows, and Lisha Levi of Boise, and the employ- ees and patrons of the Flying M Coffee House in Boise for their gener- ous donations of school supplies. Students were thrilled to find that any items they were missing were available to them on the first day of school. Becki and Lisha worked hard to try to fill our entire school supply list for all grades! If students are m need of anything throughout the year they should go to the school counselor's office to pick up supplies. This dona- tion has been appreci- ated immensely in these hard economic times and means a lot to stu- dents and their families. Teachers and staff would also like to send out a heartfelt thank you, as this means students will come to class prepared and ready to learn. Erin Branstetter, Secretary, Meadows Valley School District #11 @ Dear Editor, The Council Booster Club would like to thank everyone for their sup- port and for coming to the Lumberjack Tailgate Party. A special thank you to Double D Meats for donating all the ham- burgers and hot dogs, to Ronnie's Market for donating the condiments and bottled water, Coke for donating soda pop, and the bread company that donated all the ham- burger and hotdog buns. @ Dear Editor, The Family of Paula L. Schuck would like to thank the communi- ty of Council, not only for your the support at Saturday's Memorial, but for over 30 years of continuous love and sup- port she received from all of her friends and the entire community. We especially thank you for the moral and financial support that the com- munity provided in the aftermath of her acci- dent 4 years ago. Council showed that they have a special place in their heart for Paula, and the family will always have a special place in our hearts for all that loved her and the town that loved her. In the New Meadows City Council meeting report last week, it should have been mentioned that the Arial Mapping was approved because in the long run it will be cheaper, by far, than surveying each project. That includes the Commercial street project. Little or no survey cost will be needed after the Arial Survey is done. This will also assist greatly in mapping all water and sewer lines to where they actually are. "IAke you, I love living in this area. Haxdng a fifll- time dental practice with locations in Council and Cambridge means it's convenient to see the dentist on any weekday right where you live Doctorate Residency @ Adjunct Faculty at Idaho State University AEG Dental Refidencv Licensed in I.V. / Oral S6&tion O Full-Time Practice set~'ing Council andCambridge since 2002 reported that there is still plenty of rock in Adams County and that it will cost $25,000 to blast the rock in the right of way along Wilson Road. He recommended, and the Commissioners agreed, that it was not worth the additional $60,000 it would cost to blast in ditches along the road. The good news is that it will not require the county to haul in any gravel to complete the road. The Commissioners decided to not appeal the decision by FEMA not to pay for moving Wilson Road after the June, 2010, flooding. The County had planned that the new road would be covered by flood insur- ance, but FEMA has made that impossible this year. Sheriff Rich Green con- tinues to recover from his heart attack, but the Sheriff's Department has had to take on security for the Wesley Fire as an additional duty requested by the Forest Service. Two deputies spent over 40 hours working on secu- rity for the fire last week- end. That kind of extra duty raises the question of whether the depart- ment can maintain their regular activities and keep the deputies ready for county duties. An overworked deputy was involved with a tragic accident a couple of years ago, and the county does not want that to happen again. Several issues at the Sheriff's Department have been placed on hold until Sheriff Green can resume his regular duties. Lt. Zollman is making an inventory of surplus equipment in the depart- ment that may be dis- posed of later this year. Jailer Steve Ogden report- ed that there were twenty State of Idaho inmates at the jail last week, and that two more prisoners are expected this week from the State. Death Notices Edgar Edgar Lee Biggs, 84, of Council died September 16, 2012 at his home. Arrangements are under the direction of Thomason Funeral Home Weiser. James Hartley James Milton Hartley, 79, of Council died September 18, 2012 at a Payette care facility. Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Thomason Funeral Home Weiser.
