A guy lost control of his rig trying to miss a deer or maybe just going too fast. This is up by Dave M.'s place. Apparently the horses were not injured but reluctant to go for another ride. Phone service is out at quite a few residences but they did miss Dave's pole fence.

Hi, Wanted to let everybody know I install a RAWS Station, (Remote Automated Weather Sensor) in Ola at the school. It transmits hourly on GMT time which is 7 hrs ahead of local time. To find it, go to “ROMAN RAWS”, scroll down to ID, the name of the station is “Boise Portable 1, Marrie”. Most of it is easy to read. Under ‘Wind”, that tells the direction and level speed. A reading might be “2801”, which means 280 is the direction and 1 is the level speed of the wind. Under “Peak Wind”, it might read something like “21G10” , That means the station counted the highest gusts of wind at 10 mph, 21 times. The “Fuel Temp and Fuel Moist” is a ½ inch stick that measures the temp and moisture of the fuels on the ground, something Firefighters like to know. “SR” is the intensity of the sun. In the summer it can get into the 1000s, this time of year it stays low, on a foggy day it might get close to 100. Another station of interest for the area is “Pine Creek” . It is located above Ola and High Valley just inside the timber. ( there is a Pine Creek Pass, but it’s located up north) Any question I’ll be happy to answer, or Mrs. Blackford has a good run down on the stations I set up, maintain, and how to read them. Thanks, M. Becktold

Emmett hospital notifying patients of recalled drug print Email this article | MORE by Associated Press KTVB.COM Posted on October 5, 2012 at 2:48 PM BOISE -- State health officials say a hospital in southwest Idaho and a private clinic in the eastern part of the state are the only two medical facilities that received shipments of a recalled steroid linked to a deadly outbreak of meningitis. The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare identified the facilities Friday as the Walter Knox Memorial Hospital in Emmett and Idaho Falls-based Pain Specialists of Idaho. Agency Spokesman Tom Shanahan said doctors at both locations are working to notify patients who may have received an injection of the recalled drug. So far, there are no illnesses reported in Idaho patients who received the shots taken for back pain. Nationally, 47 people in seven states have been diagnosed with infection, and five have died from the rare fungal meningitis.

taking care of the auction. Because of everyone’s support and help, it
was a success.
Thank you, Joy

These puppies were born under the Ola Inn.
I fed them at my place until a rescue could be found.
P.A.W.S. in McCall took them.
Today, "Halle Berry" is the official greeter at
