The Adams County Record Indian Valley & Mesa News First, I send a salute out to all of our veteran's in the area and throughout the United States. Please remember our veteran's not only on Veterans Day, but throughout the year with thanks and prayer. Farrah and Mike Ball are celebrating being grand- parents. Farrah's daugh- ter, Jazmine, and James Johnson became parents on October 26, 2012 a bit early, but little Kamryn Bentley Johnson is over- coming the odds and con- tinues to improve. Kamryn was born weighing in at not quite two pounds, but has been growing and now has broken the two pound barrier. Farrah, Mike and Ryan, along with Pat and Martha Ball, went to Boise to visit the new addition on Thursday at St. Luke's Hospital. Congratulations on the newest addition to the family and we will join in the prayers for his con- tinued strength and growth. Jack and Jill Doughton and Margaret Thomason enjoyed a great day selling items from their booths at the Indian Valley Craft Fair. Jill says it was a really good showing and enjoyed visit- ing with the many visitors and other crafters. Now, she is spending this week cooking up sweet taste sen- sations as they prepare for the Cambridge Craft Fair on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. Jim and Lavonne Conner enjoyed a trip to Riggins this past week to visit with friends, Bill and Cathi Smith. I also send a thank you to Mrs. Hubbard in New Meadows who called to inform me that she had received the same scam phone call as Lavonne only a couple of weeks prior. Again, please beware of shady phone calls asking for money. Larry Boehm and Bev Galloway stayed busy with doctor appointments in Wednesday, November 7, 2012 Everybody went to the craft fair By Lynn Weiser on both Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday, they enjoyed the month- ly meeting for the Cuddy Mountain Ramblers at Lakey's Caf6. That eve- ning, Larry attended a meeting in Council for the American Legion. Friday, they attended the last football game of the sea- son for grandson, Andrew Galloway, in Fruitland. At home, Larry's been clean- ing up a mess left by a por- cupine that found the tasty apples left on the porch. They have also enjoyed the sounds of fall as they can hear the geese leaving from Ben Ross Reservoir. Don and Jackie Dowdy enjoyed a trip to Buckley, WA this past week to visit family. They attended the wedding for their oldest grandson, Chris, /nd his new bride, Crystal. They also got to see their new- est great grandbaby for the first time, which made for a double treat. Wanda Morgenslen enjoyed attending the craft fair on Saturday. She made a pie to donate to the sale and immensely enjoyed viewing the many vendor booths and visiting with friends. On Monday, she and Tony enjoyed having brother, Lynn Morris of Council come down and help with cutting the wild plum trees back. Judy Green spent a morning making her yummy cinnamon rolls to take to the Trunk or Treat for her church fall party on Wednesday. Friday, she and Tom enjoyed a visit with their friend, Lanae Veselka. Saturday, she made rolls to take to the craft fair to be served with the delicious soup. Sunday, they returned home from church to discover they had no water. William" helped Dezi learn how to install a new switch, but as of Monday afternoon the problem still hadn't been solved. Hopefully it is nothing major and they have water again soon. Jim and Patty Shaw enjoyed visiting with friends and buying some sweet treats and lunch at the craft fair on Saturday. Mary Rininger enjoyed attending the birthday party for Lila Coates on Saturday past. Mary couldn't resist telling Lila that no one would ever believe Lila was 90! This Saturday, she worked at the craft fair for the Improvement League booth. Mary even went to great lengths to prove the knives were sharp by cut- ting her thumb and was glad Julie Burkhart was there to bandage her up. Robin Juica enjoyed a trip to Salmon with her sister, Liz Stephens, over the weekend. The girls left on Friday and enjoyed the drive through the wonder- ful fall colors. In Salmon, they visited their cousin, MaryBeth Pederson, having Page 7 Leatherman -- 739-5756 a delightful time. Celestino enjoyed a visit with his daughter and her family on Sunday in McCall. Janet Meyer enjoyed _a wonderful shopping trip to the Indian Valley Craft Fair. From Doris Crossley's cin- namon rolls, all the raffles and a stop at Kay York's booth, she says she hit them all and loved every minute of finding new items and visiting. Ron had an adventure that gave me a chuckle. Seems he and Charlie passed the cabin of a good friend while out in the woods hunting. Seeing that it was inhabited, Ron descended on the door, gave his usual knock and burst in saying "Hi, I'm here!" as he normally does with his good friend. Only difference is this time he opened the door to a group of ladies who were scrap- booking. Good thing he didn't have a chain saw in his hand or he might have scared them to death! New Teacher of the week Patty Sierra [Editor's note: Mrs. Sierra contributed the following.] I'm thrilled to have the opportu- nity to join the staff at Meadows Valley as the new part time ESL/High School Spanish teacher! My husband and I have just moved from San Diego to the area I've loved all my life, and vacationed every summer ...... New Meadows! Hello! Patty Sierra, here, be a great volunteer and a new teacher in town, look- great friend to the guys m ing for ways to get involved fruitfully in the commu- nity! I have a wonderful husband who owns his own medical supply dis- tribution company, and is helping me refresh an older cabin in the woods. Gil loves to help out in the community, and would the community. We have two wonderful daughters. One is a surgi- cal nurse, married, living in Seattle, and Wife to a young Microsoft PhD. Our youngest daughter is at the University of BIOLA, studying to be a teacher. We are preparing wonder- ful vacations up here for them! Originally from Nampa, Idaho, daugh- ter in Keim's meat- packing family busi- ness, a graduate of Nampa High School, and a former Spanish/ English major at U teaching, as well as ESL/ assessments support. It's an interesting experience helping people "new to English" to transition to the US. My most recent teaching experience includes teaching grade school Spanish as a Second Language, and before of ily moved back to California, and so did I, where I fin- ished my BA at Cal State University - at East Bay, with a bilin- gual, cross-cultural option Liberal Arts degree. I then completed my specialty year--a 5- year program of the California Bilingual Teacher Credential pro- gram and student-taught in two urban city situations, both 6th and 1st grades. My classroom expe- rience has always been in bilingual classroom Idaho, my fam- that I taught High School Spanish for a small private group. My largest experi- ence is as a Bilingual/ESL teacher in primary grades, in San Diego, Modesto, and Suisun, California. I like to determine the unique needs of each stu- dent, and create lessons. that inspire and meet stu- dents at their level of need and interest. Now, for me, it's just plain fun to teach Spanish to high schoolers! I welcome the opportu- nity to guide and encour- age young learners to meet their greatest challenges. Visits from our neighbors BY DALE FISK When Harold and Lori Hoxie returned from a Labor Day Weekend get- away, they found their favorite riding mule dead in a pasture near their home west of Fruitvale. The hind- quarters had been horri- bly mangled and partially eaten. A Fish & Game offi- cer who came to investigate said it looked like a clas- sic wolf kill. But this could not be officially confirmed, as other animals had been dining on the mule. Right around that time, Patty Holm noticed her horses acting panicked at her home just down the road about a half-mile toward Fruitvale from where the Hoxie's mule had been killed. They crowded up to her as if asking for protection from something. But there was no visible threat and the horses even- tually calmed down. Soon after that, Patty learned that Andy Glenn had seen a cougar with two cubs near his house just north of Fruitvale. About a month earlier, Mike Armistead noticed one of his cows had dis- appeared. As he searched the 400 or so acres of his ground on South Exeter Street, the smell of death led him to where she lay. Mike had seen two wolves on his property in the past, and tracks of oth- ers, so they were certainly suspects. Mike noticed the crows and magpies that always congregate on dead animals wanted nothing to do with this cow. A neigh- borhood bear didn't have such objections, and had been helping himself to free meat. After investigat- ing and pondering the pos- sibilities, Mike concluded that the cow had died from a rattlesnake bite. Sometimes the neigh- bors that drop by are not the ones we expect -- or want.
