Greetings from the Payette County Sheriffs Office

By Sheriff Chad Huff It's that time of year again when the leaves start turning brown, the weather begins to cool and kids are returning to school. For the parents, it can be a time mixed with different emotions. I know for me, it's my favorite time of the year. I usually come home to a house that is less cluttered, football and hunting season begins and the weather is cool enough to work around the house. As for the Sheriffs Office, certainly one of our main concerns is the safety of the children returning to school. I would ask the motoring public to slow down around the school areas and be extra cautious during times when children may be out of school. These times are generally between 7:30 to 8:30 in the morning and from 11:30 to 12:30 during the lunch hour and 2:45 to 3:30 in the afternoon. In other news, we have just installed new dispatching consoles in the Payette County 911 Center. Our old consoles have been around since the mid 1980's and we were at the point we could not purchase replacement parts for the old consoles. The new consoles are completely computerized and utilize a 19" monitor which displays all the radio frequencies the Payette County 911 Center utilizes. It is as simple as using the mouse to select a frequency, pushing either a foot pedal or a button near the microphone and transmit your information. The new consoles also have the capability to "patch" which is transferring a telephone call to a radio frequency. The consoles also have the capability of paging the fire departments, and paramedics. They can patch between UHF and VHF channels, just to name a few of the new features. This system is set up for Computerized Assisted Dispatching (CAD). This system will allow dispatchers to keep track of all radio traffic, calls, etc. by typing the data directly into the system. The need for daily logs, currently used by officers on patrol, will be removed allowing officers to spend less time collecting this information. This new system also has the capability for Mobile Data Terminals. Eventually, each patrol car will have a lap-top computer installed and officers can check driver's licenses, warrants, and other criminal history information directly from their patrol car computer. Dispatchers can patch calls directly to the MDT's without having to transmit over the radio. We are in the very basic stages of the new dispatching consoles. Many of the functions I mentioned have to be purchased separately and when funds are available, we will begin to make these additions. Speaking of funding, I would like to share with you some information about where the funding comes from to purchase equipment for the 911 Center. In 1988, the Idaho State Legislature recognized that providing consolidated emergency communication systems was vital in enhancing the public health, safety and welfare of the residents of the state. Therefore, the legislature enacted the Emergency Communications Act which allows for funding, separate from property taxes we all have to pay. This budget is funded by a fee imposed on both telephone lines and wireless communication systems. Payette County also supplements this budget by renting tower space to cell phone companies and other emergency service agencies, etc. This budget grows annually and eventually, there are enough funds to purchase some of the very expensive equipment we must have to operate. We are excited about the upgrades to our 911 Center and our commitment to providing the best service we can to the citizens of our county. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office. We are here for you!

Idaho 55 Labor Day travelers encouraged to avoid traffic congestion

BOISE - Recreationists who use Idaho 55 during the Labor Day weekend can avoid heavy traffic by traveling outside peak travel times or using an alternate route, the Idaho Transportation Department announced. The transportation department's holiday traffic control project will assist motorists at the intersection of Idaho 55 and Banks to Lowman Road on Monday, Sept. 4, starting at about 11 a.m. Flaggers have assisted motorists at this intersection on summer holidays since 1995. Congestion is heaviest in this area, as recreationists traveling from the Garden Valley area access Idaho 55. Motorists also should be aware of construction work on Idaho 55 at Rainbow Bridge near Smiths Ferry. Work to rehabilitate the historic and often-photographed bridge started May 15. During the Labor Day weekend, both lanes will be open to traffic from Friday at noon through Tuesday at noon. Motorists traveling outside these times should expect delays of up to 15 minutes. Construction crews will take precautions to avoid impacts to rafters and kayakers on the North Fork of the Payette River. The transportation department offers the following tips for holiday weekend travelers: * Congestion is heaviest on the last evening of the holiday weekend, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Consider returning from your trip before or after this time to avoid the rush. * Consider using an alternate route. To use U.S. 95, travel north on Idaho 55 from McCall, take U.S. 95 south and use Interstate 84 to return to the Treasure Valley. This route may take less time than using Idaho 55 on a congested day. Recreationists leaving the Garden Valley area may want to use Idaho 21 to return to the Treasure Valley. * If you choose to use Idaho 55 when congestion is heaviest, be patient and plan an extra hour or two for your return trip.

More Tales of New Plymouth

By Mary Goldsmith Blinn

Along with the Payette Valley Sentinel office, there were many other fascinating places in New Plymouth back in the `30s and `40s when I was growing up. One of the other places which I first became aware of was the shoe store/post office which was located down Plymouth Ave by Conrad's Drug Store. It was run by a Mr. Hamilton. (In those days we were not allowed to refer to older people by anything but their last names and to this Every Wednesday is Western Dance from 6 pm - 9 pm. Bring some kind of finger food. There is no age limit. You do not have to be a Senior! So come on day I do not know what Mr. H's first name was.)

swiftly around the walls until he came to the desired she box, stopped the ladder with his toe, grabbed the box and descended. Every kid in town yearned to ride that ladder. I don't know of one that ever did! Besides the shoe store, the post office on the other side of the store was also run by Mr. Hamilton. It was equally fascinating because there was a waste basket near the desk where people opened their letters and threw the envelopes in the trash. While waiting for our folks to get other kids shod or buy stamps at the PO window across from the shoe side, we would raid the waste basket. However, there was seldom anything but a 3-cent cancelled stamp or a 1-cent postcard to find in those days. You were in great luck if someone had received a letter with a foreign stamp on it. Imagine, a 3-cent stamp. Those were the days!

in and have a good time.

Senior Center Menu

Thursday, August 31 Roast beef sandwich on fresh bread, macaroni salad. bread & butter, dessert, coffee, tea or milk. Tuesday, September 5

Friday Breakfast Menu

Pancakes, Toast, Bacon, Sausage, Eggs, Hash-Brown Potatoes, Choice of Fruit, Orange Juice, V-8 Juice, Coffee, Tea, Milk, or Hot Chocolate

His store was wonderful. Not only did we buy our yearly shoes there, but it was a joy to do so. Mr. H. had a ladder that hooked onto the top rail over a wall of shoes. He'd climb up to the proper level and push off so that the ladder moved

Mayor'sMessage

Fall is here! School is starting! It may be premature to say fall is here. A few days break from the extreme heat sure make it feel that way though. With school starting, please slow down as you drive down Plymouth Avenue, the Boulevards, and the other streets within the City. In many places we don't have adequate sidewalks to handle all the students so they are often walking on the sides of the roads. The City Council is working on getting more sidewalks available to the students and is exploring the opportunity of putting a walking path through the Boulevards.

wells. Send one of the kids over to fish them out." I knew those window wells were at least two feet deep. Grandpa couldn't possibly reach down that far. I'd have to put one of the children down there to lift them out. Sispy was obviously done with the mothering bit. Sispy disappeared and I didn't ask and nobody offered any explanation. Another morning Short returned for breakfast. He'd fed the cows in our barn and cautioned the children to stay away from the hay stack in the drive-in loft. A blue tick hound was up there and had obviously been run over. He didn't want either of the kids messing around and maybe getting bit. Thought the hound would probably die of his terrible wounds. Later that morning I realized Tommy wasn't in the house. Ardy admitted he'd taken some water up to the poor dog. I hurried to the barn and found him, sitting on a pile of hay, holding the head of that beat up hound. The entire hip area was raw and looked incredibly painful. Tommy was talking softly to it and pouring love in his voice and touch. The dog looked at him with grateful eyes. What could I say? He had a compassionate friend in Tommy, one who loved dogs from day one. That dog turned into a first-rate animal. In the early mornings we would hear him baying up on the hillside as he chased rabbits. His bed was a bushel basket on the back porch suitably padded with an old cushion. He would come back sopping wet from dew he'd picked up running in the tall grass. A few weeks later a skinny, wearylooking black female appeared on our doorstep one morning. We fed her and she took up residence under our lilac bush. It wasn't long before we knew she was going to produce pups. The morning of the event she came up on the porch, stared the blue tick in the eye and he, obviously the father, hopped out of the basket and took up his bed under the lilac bush. She entered the bushel basket and before breakfast was over had begun birthing her babies. He allowed her to remain there as long as she was nursing; the minute she began to wean them, he came onto the porch, stared her right in the eye and she, dutiful wife that she was, left her comfy bed and returned to the hay bed we'd made for her under the lilac bush. Incidentally, for those in New Plymouth who know of our 11 year old Dachshund, he went to "doggie heaven" a couple of weeks ago. We're now hoping to get another soon. Paul is lost without "Junior." Will this one be a "Junior2" or a "Junioretta?"

I guess you know by now that my marriage was disintegrating and the pieces were falling around my feet. Before I go into any more of that period of my life I'm reminded of a couple of special dogs we had at the farm. Yes, I've always been partial to dogs and, although I think cats are often downright elegant looking, I just never took a shine to one. We lived on a lonely stretch of county highway and various dogs and cats were dropped off regularly near our long driveway by inconsiderate owners. The cats gravitated to the other barn where Grandpa Trevor would give them all a panful of Holstein milk before he put the Angus calves to nurse. We ignored the dogs and they sort of wandered off and found other homes. One dog in particular was not a stray. It was one the farm sort of got stuck with. Her name was Sispy. She arrived one lovely day, accompanied by Dr. Fisher, an East Liverpool pediatrician. She was a beautiful purebred Airedale. Perfect lines. Lovely to look at - snappy and irritable. Just wanted to be left alone to go her regal way. I didn't want her around my children. Some money changed hands and Short's Dad agreed to keep her in the barn on the other farm since she was already snapping at little Fide who was old Tommy's pride and joy. "Let's see her throw her weight around with one of the Aberdeen Angus bulls." Fide was Grandpa Trevor's lap dog. It wasn't long until I spotted that dog one day strolling up one of the back roads on the farm - followed by a motley looking pack of mutts. Not a pedigree in the bunch. Oh, well, she wasn't our dog so I really didn't care what happened to her. I should have cared. That nose-in-the-air female birthed 12 puppies in one litter. I was designated to dispose of the pups. Easier said than done! A newspaper ad did nothing to relieve me of even one. An Airedale mix wasn't even nibbled at when I had no idea who the sire was. Each of my nearest neighbors already had a farm dog. Even tried to pawn them off on a lady who kept strays until they were either adopted or the pound took them to euthanize. She did take six of them. In the meantime, Sispy, lousy mother than she was, had completed her weaning of them and would saunter up the highway with a couple of them following behind. A neighbor would call to say, "Mrs. Trevor, I already told you I don't want a pup. That Airedale led two of them up to my back porch and then ran off and left them. Come and get them!" Grandpa Trevor promised me he would get rid of the mother dog. He was livid that day, "She just dropped two of those little fellows down one of the basement window

Southwest Idaho Highway Construction Report for Aug. 27-Sept. 4

BOISE - Highway construction will be suspended during the Labor Day holiday on most projects that impact traffic. Flaggers will assist motorists at the intersection of Idaho 55 and the Banks to Lowman Road on Labor Day. ADA COUNTY U.S. 20/26 (Chinden Boulevard), Hewlett-Packard main entrance to Joplin Idaho Sand & Gravel is building this $6.9 million project to widen Chinden from two to four lanes between Hewlett-Packard and Joplin Road. During construction, the center turn lane is eliminated and traffic limited to one lane in each direction. Left turns from westbound Chinden Boulevard onto Five Mile Road are not permitted at the intersection's traffic signal. The east end of Joplin is closed until late fall, but access will be maintained to all area businesses and residences. Work on this project is expected to be complete this winter. This is the second phase of a project to widen Chinden Boulevard to five lanes from Eagle Road through Garden City. The final section, between Hewlett-Packard's main entrance and Cloverdale Road, is scheduled for construction in 2007. I-184, Curtis Road overpass During this four-month project to rehabilitate the Curtis Road overpass bridge, Curtis Road is reduced to one lane in each direction in the interchange area. Left turns from the Curtis bridge onto the connector (I-184) are not allowed. Connector off-ramps to Curtis Road are closed to trucks. Other vehicles may use the ramps, but motorists should expect delays. The connector will have intermittent lane restrictions during non-peak travel times. All inbound lanes will remain open during the morning commute. All outbound lanes will remain open during the afternoon commute. Record Steel and Construction Inc. of Meridian is the contractor on this $862,000 project. Blacks Creek Rest Area Western Construction is the contractor on a $10.2 million project to rebuild this Interstate 84 rest area, located about 10 miles east of Boise. When finished, the site will include new bathrooms, a picnic area with tables and seating and new landscaping. Traffic will be reduced to one lane in either direction on I-84 in the work zone as needed. The rest area will remain closed until the project is finished in winter 2006/2007. CANYON COUNTY Interstate 84, Karcher Interchange, Nampa Central Paving Inc. is building this new I-84 Interchange in Nampa that is expected to open for traffic this winter. Nampa-Caldwell Boulevard is reduced to one lane in each direction near the intersection with Karcher Road. Karcher Road is closed east of Nampa-Caldwell Boulevard to Midland Boulevard, and Midland Boulevard is closed from Karcher Road to the Karcher Connector. The Karcher Connector opened on Tuesday. Idaho 55, Marsing to Sunnyslope Curve The road will be widened to five lanes with guardrail, irrigation, drainage facilites and a new canal bridge added in this three-mile section of Idaho 55. Motorists will be assisted through the work zone by traffic control devices and flaggers. The speed limit is reduced to 45 mph in the work zone. Idaho Sand & Gravel is the contractor for this $6.1 million project that will be finished in spring 2007. ELMORE COUNTY 8th Street North widening, Mountain Home This project will reconstruct and widen a .42-mile section of 8th Street North in Mountain Home. Between the canal and American Legion, 8th Street North is closed except for local traffic. To avoid the construction area, motorists should enter North 18th East Street from American Legion Boulevard to access the west side of the project. The work is expected to be completed in the fall. VALLEY COUNTY Idaho 55, Rainbow Bridge One lane will be closed during rehabilitation of the historic and often-photographed Rainbow Bridge over the Payette River north of Smiths Ferry. Mowat Construction Co. will make improvements to the arch piers, floor beams, deck joints and columns of the bridge in this $2.9 million project this fall. The bridge rail replacement will proceed next spring. Lane closures on the bridge will not occur on weekends, holidays or when scheduled community events will result in a considerable increase in traffic. Idaho 55, Round Valley to Clear Creek About five miles of pavement are being rehabilitated south of Cascade. The speed limit is reduced to 35 mph through the construction zone with traffic reduced to one lane and managed by flaggers and a pilot car as needed. Motorists should expect delays of 15-30 minutes. The project is expected to be completed by October. Idaho 55, Banks area Final curb work is being completed as part of guardrail replacements on sections of Idaho 55 near the Cascade Raft Company, Beehive Bend and at Banks. Work is scheduled to be completed by the Labor Day weekend.

Ten Mile Interchange public meeting Aug. 31; joint meeting with City of Meridian on their Ten Mile Specific Area Plan

BOISE - The first public meeting for the Ten Mile Interchange Project is Thursday (Aug. 31), and will be a joint meeting with the City of Meridian, the Idaho Transportation Department announced. The meeting is from 4 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Central Valley Baptist Church, 600 N. Ten Mile Road (between Cherry Lane and Franklin Road), in Meridian. Short overview presentations will be given on the hour and displays showing typical interchange designs and improvements to surrounding roadways will be available for review and comment. City of Meridian staff will explain their Ten Mile Specific Area Plan. The Ten Mile Interchange Project, part of Connecting Idaho, will provide a new access to Interstate 84 in western Ada County. Construction could begin in late 2008 or early 2009. When constructed, the interchange will relieve congestion at the existing I-84 interchanges at Eagle and Meridian roads. Connecting Idaho provides funding to make Idahos highways safer and more efficient for people and commerce. Passed by the Idaho Legislature in April 2006, the legislation authorizes the sale of $200 million in Grant Anticipation Revenue Vehicle (GARVEE) bonds for the first year of Connecting Idaho. Funds have been approved to complete the environmental analysis and design of the Ten Mile Interchange. Funding for land purchase and construction will have to be approved by future legislatures. Additional information about this project can be found on the Web at www.itd.idaho.gov select Get Involved, choose Southwest Idaho on the map and click on Ten Mile Interchange.

Bisphosphonates and Jaw Bone Damage

In the last year I wrote an article about osteoporosis. As a quick reminder, osteoporosis is the condition which can result in brittle bones and fractures. This can be a very dangerous condition. Individuals with hip fractures usually have a higher mortality rate within 6 months of the fracture compared to other healthy adults. Because of this and decreased motility, pain and loss of lifestyle, it is very important for us to treat this condition. Risks for developing Osteoporosis include: age, steroid use, estrogen deficiency, smoking history, low calcium intake, low body weight, low physical activity, family history and race. One of the more common treatments for osteoporosis, and one that I use almost exclusively, is with a drug called Fosamax. It is one of the 6 oral treatments for Osteoporosis. There are also four IV treatments and one nasal spray. These medications belong to a drug class that we call bisphosphonates. Bisphosphonates work by making bones stronger and less likely to break. People who are on the IV bisphosphonates are generally to prevent bone complications in cancer treatments. Bisphosphonates have been getting a lot of press time lately as there are some lawyers advertising to get potential plaintiffs to file a class action law suits against Merck, the maker of Fosamax. Due to the heightened awareness, I thought residents of New Plymouth might like to know what the big hub-bub concerning bisphosphonates was about. Bisphosphonates are a very safe drug class and have been used by millions of people. The overall advantage to taking a bisphosphonate is HUGE in comparison to the risks. Like all medication, food or supplement, there are potential side affects and risks that we need to compare against risk. I cannot make the decision for anyone; one must weigh the risk verses benefit themselves. The risk that has been getting a lot of press continued on page 9

Al Capone Does My Shirts by Gennifer Choldenko

A Book Review for Young Adults and Everyone Else

by Whitney Moses You may be as surprised as I was to learn that many children lived on Alcatraz Island during the twenty-nine years that it served as a penitentiary. Al Capone Does My Shirts is one boy's account of moving to the island so his father can work as a prison guard and his sister can attend a special school in San Francisco. Although the story is fictional, many of the details about life on Alcatraz were carefully researched by the author, Gennifer Choldenko. Choldenko includes some intriguing historical information in the back of the book, so don't skip the author's notes. It is fascinating to read about the real families that lived on the island. She writes, "Between fifty and sixty families resided on Alcatraz at any given time. Nine babies were born to mothers who lived on the island and some children lived their entire childhood on Alcatraz...Today it seems surprising that so many children lived on Alcatraz, but at the time Alcatraz was thought to be a better place for the kids than the city...'All of our bad guys are locked up' is a refrain sounded again and again in the handwritten accounts of island life." Choldenko uses this unusual location in 1935 as the setting for the coming-ofage story of Moose Flanagan. Moose's problems begin to multiply quickly after

arriving on Alcatraz. Moose is twelve. His sister, Natalie, is ten. Her age has been ten for the last six years. His mother started counting Natalie's age this way, because it was easier to have her younger than Moose. As Moose explains, "Then my mother could be happy for each new thing I did, without it being another thing Natalie couldn't do." Moose's mother insists on pretending Natalie is still a child because of her condition. In today's terms, Natalie had autism. The family desperately hopes Natalie will be accepted at the Esther P. Marinoff School, which had made great strides in treating the disorder. But for the time being, much of the responsibility for her care falls to Moose. Complicating Moose's life even more is Piper, the cute, manipulative daughter of the warden. Piper is very clever at involving the other children in risky schemes and then charming her way out of any negative consequences. Moose is a character that inspires both admiration and pity. He is a good, caring, responsible boy, but still just a boy. He should be a carefree kid, playing baseball with his buddies. But Moose has had to learn quicker than most that life isn't fair. And it seems to be even less fair on Alcatraz. Al Capone Does My Shirts is an unusual book, not only for its peculiar setting, but also for its unsentimental but sympathetic approach to autism and the challenges of growing up. Choldenko's style is refreshing and her story is wonderfully compelling. I urge you to check it out from the New Plymouth Library soon.

Biophosphonates, cont from p. 7

lately is something we medical geeks call Osteonecrosis of the Jaw bone, or ONJ. ONJ is a rare condition that is the result of injury to the jaw bone that then dies. It can also happen when bones do not heal properly after having dental procedures like having teeth pulled. A patient with ONJ will experience considerable pain, swelling and loss of teeth from the portion of dead bone. As I stated earlier, ONJ is a rare condition. As of May 2006, of the millions of individuals taking bisphosphonates, 368 cases of ONJ have occurred. Of these cases, 191 of them were associated with the oral medications. 94% of the ONJ is related to IV treatment for cancer patients. Makes one wonder if the attorneys chasing after Merck aren't chewing on the wrong bone. If 94% of ONJ is caused by IV medications, why are they chasing after Fosamax, an oral medication? Because Fosamax is the most used of the oral medications, this one also had the most cases in oral ONJ. The risk of ONJ with Fosamax use is calculated as being 0.7 in 100,000. That's pretty low: here are some other risks for you to compare to: · One in ten moderate smokers and one in five heavy smokers will die of lung cancer. 90 percent of non-smokers have little to no breathing disorders at time of death. · 4,000 of 100,000 car crashes a year are caused by drowsy drivers. · Americans have a 10% risk of losing hearing because we are an industrialized country. It is not as associated with age as it is cumulative exposure to sound; the biggest culprit is freeway noise. · One in 15 homes in America has a high level of Radon accumulation. This exposure can increase the health risk to that of a person to one who smokes 135 packs of cigarettes a day. · Despite the huge differential in risk, the fact is, there is still a risk. If you happen to be one of the 369 individuals who develope ONJ, that "0.7 risk in 100,000" wouldn't mean much. But the risk of breaking a hip bone, for instance makes that pale in comparison. Most of the problems with bisphosphonates occurred after a dental extraction; yet some occurred spontaneously. If you are concerned and are on a bisphosphonate, or if your medical provider suggests that you start Fosamax or similar, here are some suggested preventative measures that you can do: Start with a routine dental exam with a panoramic x-ray. Avoid any elective oral surgeries once the bisphosphonate is started. Get root canals rather than extraction. If you have poor teeth or are in the middle of invasive oral procedures you may want to delay starting the medication. Keep your oral dental hygiene as recommended by the American Dental Association and keep routine examinations. Get your teeth routinely cleaned, paying closed attention to minimizing soft tissue damage in the mouth. If you need an invasive dental procedure after starting the medication, holding your medication off for a while will not make any difference. The medication stays in bone for a very long time, over decades. If one has risk factors for Osteoporosis, one should consider treatment. If you would like to discuss this issue or any others, feel free to contact either Dr. Farrell or my self at the Valley Family Health Care clinic across the street from the library in New Plymouth!

Idaho Fish & Game

Steelhead Season Set to Open

The steelhead fishing season opens September 1 in Idaho, but this year, like the salmon runs earlier this year, the steelhead may be running behind schedule. Run timing data suggest that the 2006 run is slightly later than in 2005. But it still is too early to accurately assess the run size relative to the pre-season forecast or the actual run observed in 2005. As of August 20, about 156,000 summer steelhead had been counted at Bonneville Dam on their way upriver. The pre-season run forecast of 312,600 summer steelhead at Bonneville Dam is nearly identical to the actual run in 2005. The current count at Bonneville Dam is about 15,000 fish less than was observed for the same period in 2005. This delay is likely to result in smaller than anticipated early season counts over Lower Granite Dam and fewer than anticipate steelhead caught in the early portion of the fall fishing season. Idaho Department of Fish and Game will continue to assess the size of the 2006 run relative to the pre-season forecast. Current run timing and run size suggest that changes in the season structure or creel limits are unlikely. The steelhead season opens September 1 on the Salmon River, the Little Salmon River, and the Snake River downstream from Hells Canyon Dam. Anglers may fish for steelhead on the Clearwater River, but they may not keep any fish upstream from the U.S. Highway 12 Memorial Bridge until October 15. All anglers fishing for steelhead, even catch-andrelease, must have a valid 2006 fishing license and steelhead permit. Statewide limits for steelhead are three per day, nine in possession, and 20 for the season. Limits on the Clearwater River system are two per day, six in possession, and 20 for the fall season.

The Commission cut or eliminated antlerless deer hunting in these units: · Units 33, 34, and 35, including youth hunts and archery hunt seasons. · Unit 78 was closed to antlerless harvest in Controlled Hunt # 1067, which includes Units 56, 70, 73, 73A and 78. This will cut a youth hunt. No leftover permits will be sold following the first drawing in this hunt. · Controlled Hunt # 1058, Unit 67, will be cut from 200 permits to 50. This is an antlerless hunt. · Controlled hunt permits will go from 200 to 100 in Hunt # 1061, Units 64 and 67. This is an eithersex hunt. Antlered mule deer permits were reduced, from 149 permits to 74 permits, in Hunt # 1068 which includes Units 33, 34 and 35.

Doe Seasons Closed in Some Units

With the archery season set to open August 30, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game reminds hunters that some units are closed to antlerless hunts. In May, the Idaho Fish and Game commissioners closed antlerless hunts, including youth and archery hunts, in Units 33, 34 and 35. They also closed the youth controlled hunt in unit 78 in southeast Idaho. The hunting season changes could not be noted in the hunting brochure, which already had been published, but they are detailed on the department's web site: http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/. The move was in response to lower than average fawn survival over the winter. An ongoing mule deer fawn mortality study, a part of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game's Mule Deer Initiative, included 238 fawns in 10 southern Idaho game management units. Two thirds of them had died by May 15. The worst hit was Unit 33 with 96 percent mortality. Fawns fared the best in Unit 76 with 38 percent mortality. The mortality rate for all 10 units was 68 percent. A total of 163 fawns died, most of them from malnutrition. The second highest cause of death was coyote predation. The fawns entered the winter generally in good shape. But the late spring gave little relief, and the lack of available forage took its toll. These fawns are the yearling bucks that make up a substantial part of annual fall hunts. Increased monitoring allows the department to follow populations more closely and provides information the Commission can use to take quick action when conditions warrant. Antlerless harvest of mule deer is regulated in Idaho and occurs only when population levels will allow for it. Though deer populations generally recover quickly, partly because does commonly produce twin fawns, biologists recommended eliminating some hunting.

Invasive Aquatic Species--Why Should We Care?

By Jeff Dillon, Idaho Department of Fish and Game­ Southwest Region Most Idahoans who spend time outdoors are familiar with invasive, non-native and noxious weeds and how they affect wildlife habitat. But what about non-native aquatic invaders? Mostly they are out of sight, out of mind. Undesirable aquatic plants and animals, however, can have a dramatic effect on your fishing and boating opportunities. Most people have heard of cheatgrass, star thistle, spotted knapweed, and rush skeletonweed and other non-native and invasive plants in southern Idaho. These invaders out­compete native plants, and can affect food resources for deer, elk and other wildlife. Idaho waters are no different. Think about these examples: · Whirling disease is caused by a European organism unintentionally imported to the U.S., and in some cases it has affected western wild trout populations. · New Zealand mudsnails are well established in much of the Snake River, and a few years ago showed up in Silver Creek. They are so prolific they can replace native snails and crowd out aquatic insects, though we don't yet know what effect they'll have on fish populations. · Eurasian water milfoil, now common in northern and southwest Idaho, is a non-native aquatic plant that can quickly cover the entire surface of smaller lakes and ponds, making fishing and boating impossible.

ISSUE 136

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 30, 2006

Invasive aquatic species might also include undesirable fish, crayfish, bullfrogs, nuisance plants, and even other disease organisms. Illegal or unintentional fish introductions commonly affect established fisheries and are very expensive to control. Illegal perch introductions in Lost Valley and Horsethief reservoirs, for example, provide poor fishing for small fish, and overabundant perch also compete with trout and slow their growth. In this case the only real fix is to treat the reservoirs with chemicals to kill all the fish, and then start over. Such treatments can cost tens of thousands of dollars or more. Eurasian water milfoil is becoming more common, especially in northern Idaho lakes and southwest Idaho ponds. In the Southwest Region, the Caldwell Rotary, Duff Lane, Horseshoe Bend, Sawyers, and Airport Ponds were infested with milfoil and became pretty much useless to fishermen. Milfoil can spread easily, and new infestations can come from one small stem transported on a duck's foot, boat trailer, or float tube. Within a few years, milfoil can crowd out other aquatic plants and cover the entire surface of smaller ponds. Fish and Game has worked with local counties and other entities to chemically control this nuisance weed. The treatments seem to be effective, and fishing has improved in these ponds. But it's like mowing the lawn. Officials expect milfoil to come back and require treatment every two or three years. It's a commitment of time and money that wasn't needed before milfoil showed up. So, what can you do to fight these aquatic invaders? First and foremost, you can educate yourself and the folks you fish and boat with. Learn to identify milfoil and other invasive aquatic weeds. Make a practice of thoroughly cleaning vegetation from your fishing gear, boat, and trailer before moving from one body of water to another. Take extra precautions with waders and felt-soled boots that can harbor whirling disease spores and mudsnails. And never practice armchair fish management. While it may seem a good idea to transport and stock fish into your favorite pond or lake, it's illegal to do so, and it might do more harm than good. Learn more about aquatic invasive species and how you can prevent their spread at www.protectyourwaters.net. Jeff Dillon is the regional fisheries manager in the Southwest Region.

Revenue from Super Hunt tickets goes to fund Access Yes!, the Fish and Game program aimed at improving hunter and angler access to and across private lands in Idaho.

Wolf Control in Idaho Continues

During August, wolves have injured one and killed four calves, one adult cow and several sheep, and in response three wolves have been killed, and the Idaho Department of Fish and Game has authorized the capture and removal of one pack and four other additional wolves. When gray wolves were reintroduced in Idaho in 1995, federal officials pledged to control wolves that preyed on livestock. Control methods include monitoring to track locations, trapping and relocating or killing wolves that chronically prey on domestic livestock. Ranchers can also be compensated for livestock lost to confirmed wolf depredation. Under federal rules changed in 2005 and an agreement between Idaho and the federal government signed in January, Idaho took over day-to-day management of wolves protected under the Endangered Species Act. That includes authorizing the lethal control to protect domestic livestock. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services carries out the control action at the request of and in consultation with Idaho Fish and Game. During August, two calves were killed and another injured by a newly established wolf pack in the Danskin Ridge area near Mountain Home. Fish and Game and Wildlife Services decided to remove the entire pack in response to the depredations. Wildlife Services also confirmed on August 7 and August 10 that wolves killed several sheep on Lava Ridge, northeast of McCall. The incident occurred on a Payette National Forest grazing allotment within the Hazard Lake Pack's territory, but officials don't know which wolves are responsible. Traps have been set, and after consulting with Fish and Game, Wildlife Services intends to collar and release the first wolf captured and kill one wolf. On August 8, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves killed a calf on private land in Panther Creek, near Salmon. Traps have been set to catch and kill one un-collared wolf. Any pack members captured with functioning radio collars will be released. If caught, the wolf with a nonfunctioning collar will be released with a new collar. Also on August 8, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves killed a calf on private land near Salmon. Traps have been set with the intention of killing one wolf. On August 11, Wildlife Services confirmed that wolves killed an adult cow on private land near Donnelly. The producer did not want trapping on his property. A shooton-sight permit was issued for one wolf. On August 15, Wildlife Services captured and killed two un-collared, black, sub-adult female wolves from the Steel Mountain Pack near the Trinity Lakes area in the Boise National Forest. The control action was completed August 19 when Wildlife Service captured and killed one gray, sub-adult female wolf. Wolf control actions are in no danger of jeopardizing wolf recovery in Idaho. To date, Wildlife Services has killed 17 wolves and ranchers have killed an additional nine wolves harassing or attacking their livestock as allowed under the 10j rule. In 2005, the wolf population

Super Hunt Raises Money for Sportsman Access

After the second round on August 15, the annual Super Hunt drawings have raised more than $120,000 for the Department of Fish and Game's Access Yes! program this year, updated figures show. But the revenue has declined since the inception of the program in 2004 when it brought in $162,391. In 2005 that dropped to $141,391, but mostly because the price per ticket dropped. The first round of Super Hunt drawings brought in $90,223 with the sale of 16,746 tickets, and the second round garnered $29,846 with 6,152 tickets. The 22,898 tickets sold this year is down from 30,298 tickets sold in 2005 and 29,983 in 2004. The winners get tags for deer, elk, pronghorn and moose in the hunt of their choice, but they must abide by the rules of that hunt. The winners of the Super Hunt Combo get tags for all four species. Money from the ticket sales goes to help fund the Access Yes! program, designed to improve hunter and angler access to private land or through private land to public land by compensating willing landowners. The program goal is to provide access to at least 1 million acres of private land. More than 100 properties now are enrolled in the program, opening 622,000 acres of private land and access to an additional 700,000 acres of public land for hunting and fishing. This nearly doubles the amount of private land from last year. Hunters and anglers can support the program by applying for a Super Hunt drawing or by making a donation.

Events at the Nature Center

Snakes Alive Do you think there are snakes hiding in the tall grass at the Nature Center? Join the staff at the Morrison Knudsen Nature Center at noon and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, August 26 and 27, to explore the basic adaptations and behavior of snakes. We'll show you where snakes live at the nature center. You will even get "up close and personal" with one of our live gopher snakes. Open to all ages. Summer Chinook And while at the Nature Center stop and check out the new guests that arrived August 17. Five adult summer run Chinook salmon, three females and two males raised in a hatchery, have returned to freshwater to spawn after spending one, two or three years in the ocean. These salmon will most likely attempt to spawn in mid- to late-August, when Nature Center visitors may be able to see a female salmon building her nest, or redd, to prepare to lay her eggs in the gravel. When the Chinook die after spawning, their bodies will infuse the stream with rich ocean nutrients, maintaining a healthy freshwater system for future fish-rearing.

Hunters: Give Us Your Jaws

If you're a big game hunter, Fish and Game would like your jaw; the jaw of your cow elk or doe mule deer that is. The jaws are needed as part of an effort to better estimate the age structure of certain elk and deer populations across Idaho. "If we can collect enough lower jaws from female elk and deer, we can estimate the age structure of the female segment of several elk and deer populations," Fish and Game wildlife research biologist Craig White said. "That information is critical to better determine the status of these big game populations." Hunters harvesting cow elk or doe mule deer from hunt units 23, 28, 32, 32A, 33, 34, 35, 36, 36A, 36B, 39, 43, 44, 45 (deer only), 48 (elk only) and 50 are asked to leave the lower jaw from their harvested animal at one of three locations: a Fish and Game check station, Fish and Game regional office or a jaw barrel. Barrels will be placed at strategic points for jaw collection, and information cards will be available at all collection points to record simple information such as the unit where the animal was harvested. Please contact the Fish and Game Nampa office (465-8465), McCall office (634-8137), Jerome office (324-4359), or Salmon office (756-2271) with questions regarding the big game age structure study.

Horsethief Reservoir to be Drained/ Treated

Horsethief Reservoir's yellow perch population, offspring of their illegally stocked descendants, will soon get the boot thanks to action taken by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. The reservoir's once robust trout fishery has suffered since the illegally planted yellow perch were first spotted in Horsethief back in 2003. "We've been monitoring the perch population since then," Fish and Game Fisheries manager Dale Allen noted. "This summer, fishing for trout has been severely impacted by the stunted perch population, and the only remedy to restore Horsethief's trout fishery is to drain the reservoir down slowly after Labor Day until it is dry, and restock the reservoir with trout next spring." Fish and Game has taken this same control action twice before at Horsethief, both times because of illegally introduced perch. Fish and Game is now requesting comments and concerns about the proposed draining of Horsethief Reservoir. Correspondence related to this project should

be sent to Dale Allen -Regional Fishery Manager at the Fish and Game McCall Office, 555 Deinhard Lane, 83638 or by phone at 208-6348137. Allen expects the removal process to take about two months, concluding sometime in late October. Some perch will be salvaged and the reservoir will be opened (sometime during the process) to fish salvage by anglers. Once the reservoir is drained, biologists will apply rotenone, a fish toxicant, to any remaining waters behind the dam. In the spring of 2007, the reservoir will be restocked with catchable rainbow trout and brown trout fingerlings. Horsethief Reservoir, a Fish and Gameowned reservoir, is managed for trout fishing, and is as popular a destination for campers as it is anglers. Illegal introductions of fish, including yellow perch at Horsethief, are extremely costly to Fish and Game, and ultimately to license buyers both in terms of direct monetary costs as well as lost recreational fishing opportunities. The action is being taken because trout and yellow perch do not co-exist well in smaller reservoirs like Horsethief. "Competition for food and the high reproductive ability of yellow perch are the main problems," Allen said. "As the perch population increases, it slows trout growth, and the large numbers of small yellow perch make fishing for trout slow." Fortunately, the project should not sideline Horsethief for too long. "The reservoir will fill with next year's spring runoff and we will restock Horsethief with trout as soon as possible," Allen said. "Trout fishing should be good in 2007, and the stocked trout will grow very well in the months following restocking." For those with a passion for yellow perch, their numbers are on the rebound in Lake Cascade, just a few miles west of Horsethief. Allen and his staff expect good fall perch fishing at Cascade, and even better winter ice fishing.

City Library Corner

As we continue to think about literacy and what it means to our children's lives, I want to share with you some skills that will help you to give your child a strong reading foundation. This information was adapted as part of the Every Child Ready to Read @ your library.® a joint project of the Public Library Association and the Association for Library Service to Children. information about early literacy skills can be found at their site, http://www.pla.org/ala/pla/plaissues/earlylit/ earlyliteracy.htm Early Literacy Skills The National Research Council recommends that children enter school with specific early literacy skills that serve as the foundation for learning to read and write. Children who enter school with more of these skills are better able to benefit from the reading instruction they receive when they arrive at school. The following was created by the Idaho Commission for Libraries' Read to Me project. Narrative Skills--Being able to tell or retell a story helps children understand what they read. To help develop narrative skills: - Listen to your child carefully when he or she talks or tells stories. - Tell stories to your child ­ family stories, stories about when your child was born or adopted, and stories about other relatives are fun starters. - Share books together and talk about the pictures. - Read wordless stories together and let your child tell the story. - Tell childhood classics together. The Three Little Pigs andThe Three Billy Goats Gruff are fun for the whole family to participate in or act out. - Add to what your child says. If your child says, "big truck" then you say, "Yes, a big red fire truck." - Tell stories with puppets or dolls. Encourage your child to pretend and write down some of the stories she tells you. - Help your child relate what is happening in the story to her own experience, for example, "What happened when we went swimming?" - Ask open-ended questions like, "What do you think is happening in this picture?" and "What was your favorite part of the story?" Studies of early readers show they come from homes where oral language is used in a variety of ways.
