As a side note, our con- tributing photographer, Helen Glidden, took a bad fall from one of her horses recently. She broke a few rock up, but it was fun to bones and is slowly recov- imagine. The rock is along ering. We wish her the best. Last week's picture was not exactly the most scenic one I've featured here, but it showed something I've found amusing for years. I've never heard who put it there or if it was even inten- tional, but it always looked to me as if a wooden pole was propping up a huge rock that otherwise would have tipped over toward the highway. Of course the pole never was holding the Highway 95 just this side of what I'm told is the Sheep Creek rest area south of Riggins, somewhere near mile marker 189. We received 5 correct answers, and Craig DeMoss was the name drawn from the hat.

Thank you to everyone Laugh of the Week We're Getting A Divorce A man in Florida, calls his son in New York one November day. The father says to the son, "I hate to tell you, but we've got some troubles here in the house. Your mother and I can't stand each other any- more, and we're getting ~r divorce. I've had it! I want to live out the rest of my years in peace. I'm telling you now, so you and your sister shouldn't go into shock later when I move out." He hangs up, and the son immediately calls his sister m the Hamptons and tells her the news The sister says, "I'll handle thisy - She calls Florida and says to her father, "Don't do ANYTHING till we get there! We'll be there Wednesday night." The father agrees, 'Tkll right." The man hangs up the phone and hollers to his wife, "Okay, they're com- ing for Thanksgiving and they're paying their own way. Now, what are we going to tell them for Christmas?" Continued from front page county commissioners, and the job is getting done. On Monday several members of the ACHPC, volunteers and county workers placed a layer of rocks along the bottom terrace of the hillside next to Highway 95/Michigan Street. The baseball-sized rocks, which the county donated, came from Clearwater Concrete in McCall. A plastic barrier was placed under the layer of rocks to keep unwanted vegetation from growing up through them. The deteriorated rock stairway on the hillside was removed and the rock spread by County Road Supervisor Tom Glenn at the controls of the county's excavator.
