LOTS OF TRAFFIC THROUGH OLA

This weekend Ola will see more than the usual weekend traffic.  Not only is Ola welcoming the Idaho deCompression people but it also is the opening weekend of deer hunting.  Along with a lot of cars and trucks on the road, the cattle are starting to come down, so they're on the road too.  Please drive carefully and be patient.  Better to get to where you're going, than not at all.
A local resident had a visitor the other night. The bear left his/her paw print on the sliding glass door.
Come Join our Comfort Choir!  Heart ‘n Home is having a luncheon for all those who are interested in learning about this new volunteer opportunity.
