Put Drinking with Dead Women Writers on Santa's List!

Though recommended by the tipsy authors, I never filled a glass while reading this book and my favorite chair was my morning throne, with the sun or cloud cover lighting the pages—but for a couple of weeks, this was my reveille, because my soul rises to meetings with intriguing women and intelligent literature, and I got my daily dosage each time I re-opened Drinking with Dead Women Writers.

 First of all, Elaine Ambrose and AK Turner must be commended for the concept and title—and who knows how many books never make it past the edge of the shelf because of uninspiring covers. This book looks great and feels good in the hands.

Whether contrived or not, all of AK Turner’s stories are written in the present, while Ambrose meets her spectres at a time already locked into the past. These playful rendezvoux take the reader alternately across the mist of time. Turner successfully plays with our suspension of disbelief, because we want desperately to believe that Virginia Woolf is here with us, hair still wet as though she just arrived from her dip in the river. Her women are in the flesh. We are at the table when Dorothy Parker tells Turner to drink up, and we feel woozy after the second bottle is gone.

Elaine Ambrose passes through that mist away from us and keeps her writers where they rightfully belong—dead and buried—they are shades who beckon her to a contemporary meeting place but we get the story after the curtain has closed again behind her. When Edna St. Vincent Millay tossed the cork over the banister, we could all appreciate it as we would a bard’s tale—but we didn’t get to smell the cork. When Ambrose sweated and drank margueritas with Erma Bombeck in the Old Town Tortilla Factory, the reader enjoys one funny woman with another as through an open window to a dream. Was it yesterday that Louisa May Alcott ranted about toy mice wearing Civil War costumes? Seventy-five years ago? Ambrose keeps her dead women at bay from us—she is allowed intimacy and shares it with us, but we are distanced and we have no illusions about the dead being dead. This is delightful fantasy.

Ambrose’s humor and Turner’s straight man-with-a-prod quips keep the chortles coming, and I can only holler for more. Drinking with Dead Women Writers should have a place under the Christmas tree for any lover of literature.

Holiday Deals at GV Market!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was very nice to see so many families show up to shop the small businesses here in the Valley and to visit with Santa on Saturday. If your child sat with Santa, don’t forget that we have their complimentary photo at our customer service desk for you. A big thank you to Carol Scharf for donating her time and the photos.
Just like most people, we have some Thanksgiving bakery leftovers. We have cheesecakes and cake rolls that are marked down so come on in and check them out.
Our Christmas items are all on sale and they include ornaments, tree stands, wrapping paper, gift boxes, cards, figurines, door knockers, holiday mats, artificial trees, mini trees, inflatable snowmen, wreaths, garland and more. In addition, we’ve placed our small appliances on sale as well such as bread machines, coffee urns, Panini grills, etc. When you visit next, take a few moments to look over our modest Christmas selections.
Update on Bread and Hostess products. The local Boise distributing company closed their doors when Hostess closed down so we will be supplementing their product with new items as they are made available to us.
This coming weekend the fun continues with more shopping in the local businesses. Don’t forget Christmas Trees (with better prices than Boise) are available for sale by the Contractor’s association across from the Longhorn in downtown Crouch. If you are into cutting your own, tree permits are available at the Garden Valley Chevron.
Friday is the Community Choir concert at the Community Hall. They follow it up with a Christmas Concert at the LDS church on Sunday. A display of Nativity sets is also happening this weekend at the Garden Valley LDS Church. This is a wonderful event with Nativity scenes from around the world.

Community Choir Concert This Friday!

City of Crouch Denies Deannexation

Donnie Cline has transformed the the old storage porch of the
Community Hall into a west exit.
At the November 14 City Council meeting, the deannexation of a few acres on the Middle Fork River, between Weilmunster Park and the Post Office, was denied. Last month, Mike Riley, representing Don Weilmunster and Garden Valley Cottage Resort, requested deannexation of the property, after P&Z Interim Administrator, Rora Canody, discovered the small piece of property was inside Crouch city limits.

  Boise County Commissioner, Jamie Anderson, said that if the City took the path of not deannexing, the property would have dual jurisdictions—“...part of the trailer park might have lights out at 10 p.m., the other at midnight.”

  City Clerk, Kim Bosse added, “That land does impact our revenue. Technically, we should have been getting a portion of the State Revenue property tax.”

  Mike Riley said if the property was not deannexed, he would sit with the county and Weilmunster and remaster the project. He disagreed with Mayor Powell’s comment that the City of Crouch is in this predicament because of the county: “You got the master plan in 2010; in January, 2011, I rented this hall to talk about the project; on January 20, 2011, I got the project approved. I spent tens of thousands of dollars to get where we are. There was ample time for the City to know what was going on.”

  City Attorney, John McFadden, responded, “99.99 percent of the time, people want to annex into the city, not the other way around. The due level of fiduciary responsibility the City did. I don’t think the City did anything wrong.”

  The Clerk announced that the Community Hall is on its way to having a usable west side door, where the wood storage used to be, thanks to a handy community service worker.

  City limit signs have been put up.

   Council is still considering the location of the sign that will commemorate the birthplace of artist James Castle, generously offered to the City by the Idaho Commission on the Arts. They would like the specially-crafted, porcelain enamel sign by impressive Boise artist and sign-maker, Mark Baltes, of Landmark Impressions, to be in a prominent location in Crouch. 

  The new museum in the Syringa Building is furnished and ready to be in use. There has been no response yet regarding the grant from the Idaho Heritage Trust, which would be used for renovation. Commissioner Anderson has helped Kim Bosse with the grant. The City received a $200 check from the GV Syringa Club, to help with the renovation of the building. The heat is running high, so the City will have it checked. Bosse is ready to start moving the city office into the building within the next month, “since we’re paying for the heat.”

  Syringa Club president, Georgianna Goetsch, requested that the club be allowed to use the Syringa Building as a meeting place. “Kim has been dealing with our memorabilia in the museum,’ said Goetsch, “It has a lot of historical significance. In 2015, the club will be celebrating its 100th anniversary—we do have an interest in the museum.” Council voted in favor of letting them make use of the building.

  The council voted to apply for a Local Rural Highway Investment grant, part of which could possibly be used for the re-design fee for the Crouch Bridge. There was discussion about the City and Boise County working together for this grant, because together, they get more points, and because the City of Crouch influenced the re-design of the bridge.

  Bosse stated that when John Cottingham returns to work on the ArtPlace Community Grant in the spring, she would be happy to work with him.

  Round two, regarding the GV Market emergency generator, got the mayor to respond, “I was here when we had the floods. It was two weeks before we had electricity. It would have been great to have that food and those refrigerators during the emergency.” The owners of the market are looking into muffling the sound. Councilmember Jackie Kraupp said, “I think we need to get with them and solve it.”

  Next council meeting is December 12, 2012, at 6:30 p.m., in Crouch Community Hall.

Register Garden Valley Snowmobiles as 8-B

   “Registration for snowmobiles can be confusing, because Garden Valley license plates are 6B, so take care to register as 8-B, if you live in Garden Valley,” says Linda Harrold, spokesperson for the GV Sno-Goers Club. “Also, we get people from out-of-town who come here to snowmobile; they register as 8-B—it brings more money to the valley.”

  The registration fees of $32.50 pay for the grooming of the trails. Harrold explains that the trail systems are divided into different areas, and Garden Valley pays Rick Woytko to do the grooming. Licenses can be purchased at the Terrace Lakes office.

  Tierney Nokes, of the Sno-Goers, encourages snowmobilers to also join the Garden Valley Sno-Goers Club, for several good reasons. The purely personal reason of making and keeping friends who share this exhilarating sport is obvious, when you show up at any Sno-Goers event. These clearly offer wholesome family fun, and jocund camaraderie abounds.

  More seriously, out of the forty-dollar membership you pay, twenty-dollars go to the Idaho Snowmobilers Association (ISSA). This is a lobbying organization that fights for the rights of snowmobilers.

  “The bigger we are, the more attention we draw from the State, to provide funding in our area,” says Nokes, “The more permits that are sold in our area of 8-B, the more money the State returns to Garden Valley for outdoor activities.”

Rick and Teresa Christensen
were happy to receive the $200 check.
  ISSA also offers discounts throughout the nation and locally.

  Linda Harrold adds, “The other twenty-dollars of the membership fee, and our fundraising money, go toward helping the community. We have just donated two-hundred dollars to the Food Bank.”

  Teresa Christensen, who heads up the Food Bank, says, “We don’t go through the Idaho Food Bank; it’s all community-donated. We serve probably an average of sixty families on Thanksgiving and Easter—about 200-250 people.

  “Each family gets several bags, which include a turkey, fresh vegetables and fruit, canned goods, pasta and grains. Anything that we all use, they put into the bags: shampoo, laundry and bath soaps, diapers, Baby Wipes, toilet paper and paper towels—a smattering of all.”

  Christensen continues, “We serve families with kids but also include adults without children. We find people through the other churches here in the valley.”

  Rick Christensen says, “You don’t have to be totally down and out. We’ve been doing this twenty or thirty years and have people from all the churches to help sort and load the goods. The Project Patch people—kids and adults—help distribute. We get a pretty good turn-out from them. It really helps when we get donations like this from individuals and organizations.”

  The Garden Valley Sno-Goers Club is open to everyone. Members without snowmobiles are welcome. Some members use dog-sleds. Others join for the fun events.

  Keep your ears open for the Annual Sno-Goers Fun Run, tentatively planned for January 5, 2013. If you haven’t attended this riotous event, think about going. They end it with a huge raffle of large and small items, and it’s fun to witness. Get ready to have a high-spirited day.




Order Fruit from School Science Club!

 Students of Science at Garden Valley School raise money each year for their science programs, by offering excellent fruit and vegetables for sale to the public. This year, they are offering Red Delicious, Fuji, and Granny Smith Apples; Seedless Oranges; Grapefruit; Red and Yellow Onions; and Bakers and regular-sized Potatoes.
If you and your friends would like to help maintain the science programs, call Ralph Foote, at 462-3756 x1072, or Bob Powell, at 462-3756 x1059, for prices or an order form. You may also contact them at They will be accepting orders until November 30. You may pre-pay or pay when you pick up the produce, which will arrive by the second week in December.
This has been a successful venture for the science students for many years, and they are grateful for the support the community has provided.

Thanksgiving Week at GV Market

As we enter the Thanksgiving Holiday week, all of us here at the Market wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
Each year we recognize many visitors come up to the Valley to celebrate and some will forget something important (and this happens with us locals too!), so once again, we will be open on Thanksgiving Day for 4 hours only from 10am to 2pm. This will not include liquor sales or hot deli service, but salads and cut meats will be available.
If you or someone you know is not having family and has nowhere to spend Thanksgiving, the Market and the Longhorn are teaming up for our 3rdannual free community meal. This will be at the Longhorn from 2 –5pm. On the menu is Traditional plus Salvadorean Turkey. The bar will not be open, but soft drinks will be served. If you are considering joining, please let the Longhorn know and perhaps bring a pie to share.
Speaking of pies, we’re baking plenty of fresh pies here at the Market and have a broad selection of frozen as well.
As you begin or complete your shopping for the Holiday, please consider stopping here first and check out the great values you’ll find. One example is our sale on Coke products. We have 2 liter bottles for 79 cents and 20 pack cans for only $4.99. Wow!!!! We only get 1 delivery from Coke each week, so our stock on hand is truly while supplies last. For grocery products, we will have a delivery on Sunday and on Wednesday of next week, so between the two deliveries, we hope to meet all of your needs. If something runs out this weekend, we’ll have it for you in time for the Holiday (with the exception of Coke).
When you visit, pick up a coloring sheet for the kids in your family and return the pictures so that we can display them in the market. Each child receives a small treat upon return of the competed picture. Coloring sheets are available for pick up on our Deli service Counter.
Finally, don’t forget that next Saturday, November 24th, Santa will be visiting the Market from 12noon to 4pm. He’ll be seated next to the Deli Fireplace and is expecting lots of children to visit with him. We’ll have a photographer available for your convenience!
We look forward to your next visit and hope you have a great weekend!

Large Tabby Male Cat Found



Public’s Help Sought in Elk Wasting Case

November 13, 2012

    Fish and Game is asking the public for information regarding the waste of a mature bull elk dumped on Shaw Road, south off the Grandview Highway in Elmore County on or about November 8.

      Citizens Against Poaching (CAP) is offering a reward for information in the case and callers can remain anonymous. Contact CAP at 1-800-632-5999 twenty four hours a day.
      Responding to the initial report on November 9, Fish and Game conservation officer Robert Sellers found the poached bull with an orange and black rope tied around the head. Both antlers had been sawn off, with all the meat left to waste. The carcass had been skinned and cut in half.

      Evidence was collected at the scene, but Sellers hopes to learn more about the case from an eyewitness or others who have knowledge of the wasting incident. “I am very interested in visiting with anyone who has information regarding this elk,” Sellers stated.

      In addition to the CAP hotline, persons may also contact their local Fish and Game office with information regarding this case.

happen by gets done mostly by three of these
hearty volunteers. Guess who? I'll give you hints!

  If you have problems with balance, notice your strength is waning, or feel you simply need to stretch it out and move, but you don’t get outside to do it, join the group of Fit and Fall-Proof exercisers at the Center. Ione leads an effective and free class at 3:00 p.m., every Tuesday and Thursday. Everyone is welcome.

  If you don’t like eating alone, the tasty meals at the Center provide camaraderie and a good deal: Dinner is a $5 donation, for those over 60; $6, adults under 60; and $4, under 12. Breakfast costs $5, for adults under 60; $3, under 12; and for over 60, we suggest a $4 donation.

  Remember the Senior Center thrives because of our volunteer friends.

Wolverines Play in Semi-Finals

By Mike Uhl

The game will be in Garden Valley at the High School field on Saturday, November 10.
KICKOFF at 1:00 PM
Garden Valley Wolverines had a stunning 32-8 victory over the Kootenai Warriors, on a muddy field,  last Saturday, November 3, in Harrison, Idaho.
The players were extremely ecstatic after the victory. They are ready, willing and able to play last year's defending State Champions, the Lighthouse Christian Lions. They made it to the upcoming game by beating the Carey Panthers 54-14.
Your hometown Wolverines were the only team from Boise County to make it into the Idaho State Football Playoffs for 8-man 1A Division 2 this year.
If you like football and you are in Boise County, get a busload of supporters and fans. Drive your own cars and trucks, ride horses or a pack mule. Come from all over Boise County. Come to the game. Not very often does a State Championship Playoff game come to Boise County. I am sure your cheering will make a difference in the final result.
The winner will get to play in the 2012 Milk Bowl, November 16--17.
This is a State Playoff game, run for the Idaho High School Activities Association, by Garden Valley Schools.
General admission: $5; Seniors Discount: $4; Students $4; Under 6, free.

Halloween in Crouch

TRUNK OR TREAT!             
Fire-dancers blazed, even in the rain. Ghouls dripped and smeared,
making them them scarier.
Golden Eagle Radio 97.5 blasted music
over the frenzy
and we were so possessed,
no wonder some of the names got lost!
No matter--a picture is a thousand words.
 3rd Place Winner for Trunk Decoration
Not bad for first timers!

Steamer Bill "Doctor Doom" Harder,
of Eagle Radio, never scared a tyke!
 Les Bois Credit Union employees with their
 gruesome display of loggers, winning them 2nd Place.
Greg and Gerold really do have a life outside of the Market.

Dee Polley performed a sexy fire dance.
Dexter pleaded for his life and won 1st Place Trunk;
Jan Solecky and Billie Da Volt gave him treats all night
 but he's such a ham, he would have done it for free.
Fire Chief, Jon Delvalle, made no distinctions
in his candy hand-outs.

Rex LeFevre got off his horse
to help vote for Trunks.

Nathaniel Crawley was 1st Place winner.
97.5 Witch, Babe Boomer, said,
 "Simple is always best!"

Steamer Bill "Dr. Doom" Harder of Eagle Radio
was loved by all the kids.

He won 2nd Place costume but this ghoul got lost in the crowd,
after taking the bucks.

The Haunted House took over
after Trunk or Treat
Drake Roberts won 3rd Place Costume

This Family of very-like Oz characters was made up of
 Flippins, Baileys, and Atchers

The eery wagon moved like a phantom through the crowd of revelers
--no one noticed as people disappeared.

Gary Eller to Sing Songs of Early Idaho

  A night with songcatcher, Gary Eller, should thrill any connoisseur of historical Idaho music and lore. The Friends of the Garden Valley Library, in association with the Idaho Humanities Council, are presenting Eller and his program, Historical Songs of Early Idaho, at the library on Thursday, November 8, at 7:00 p.m.

  Prepare for an evening of somber event ballads, stage songs, hilarious parodies, and even operas. The singer will share anecdotes about interesting Idaho individuals, places and events. He also will discuss the techniques he used as a “songcatcher”, to collect, preserve and interpret songs based on Idaho’s heritage. Gary Eller says, “I am very familiar with Garden Valley but have never done a program there. I am looking forward to the event.”

  Eller comes here with a diverse background. Most notably, or unexpectedly, he had a career of thirty years in nuclear science and engineering at Los Alamos National Laboratory, in northern New Mexico.

  When he retired in 2004 and moved to Pickles Butte, Idaho, it appears the historical song bug gave him a serious case of tracing musical folklore traditions. Meanwhile, he picked up a First Place award at the 2005 Horseshoe Bend banjo contest, with two original compositions, and a Second Place, in 2006. He also plays guitar and bass.

  The musician has played with many different musical groups, including Atomic Grass and Crossroads. He currently performs old-time swing, country, and Idaho music in the duet, Frozen Dogs (with Rue Frisbee, who plays fiddle, guitar and mandolin); bluegrass in Chicken Dinner Road; and early Idaho songs for the Idaho Humanities Council Speakers Bureau.

  His Idaho Songs Project began in 2007, with a grant from IHC, to collect historically-based songs of the Snake and Salmon River regions. For this, he’s compiled about two-hundred Idaho-related songs that predate the coming of radio in the state, around 1923. He found forgotten songs in special university library collections and archives of tiny museums and says he also wanted songs that captured what it was like to live, work and die here—songs that didn’t get written down or recorded.

  His Idaho Songbag CD was released by IHC, and contains more than two-dozen songs from the mid-nineteenth century, to the present. It features songs about mining, murder, labor disputes, politics, protests and cowboy laments

  Of the Songbag, Executive Director of the Idaho Humanities Council, Rick Ardinger, says, “It’s a work of historical preservation in the tradition of Alan Lomax, to gather together this sampler of music unique to Idaho.” More than 1,000 of these songs have been gathered in a compilation of polished studio recordings, wax cylinder, reel-to-reels, and cassettes.

  Eller says the CD is not about Idaho’s best-known musicians: “That’s not really its purpose. Most featured on The Idaho Songbag are not professional musicians.” Two exceptions are recordings by Pete Seeger and Pinto Bennett. Idaho City’s Beth Wilson sings a song that was first put in the Idaho World news in the 1880s. Another Idaho City musician, John Thomsen, sings his song on nuclear potatoes, which we had the pleasure of hearing him sing in the Crouch Community Hall some years back.

  Let’s hope Eller includes a catchy autobiographical tune he came up with, written by an inmate of the old Idaho Penitentiary in the 1950s, and Frank Church’s 1956 Senate campaign song.

  Other programs he does for the IHC Speakers Bureau include High Tone Music of Early Idaho and Bad Asses and Disasters of Early Idaho—Songs that should have been written but weren’t. He describes an example of a bad ass song: “Cherokee Bob, about the famous gunslinger, gambler, saloon operator and ne'er do well who got his just desserts on the main street of Florence, Idaho, on New Years Day, 1863. It is said that Brett Harte used Cherokee Bob to create the icon of the slick western gunslinging gambler who was written about in numerous western novels and used in countless western movies and TV shows.”

  Eller says, “I am always looking for songs written before 1923 about specific Idaho people, places and events. It is possible that some of your readers have hand-written poems or lyrics from their early Idaho ancestors that pertain to this subject. So please mention the quest in your article.” So be it.

  There is no charge for the program. Join Gary Eller after the program for refreshments and a jam session. Plan on playing or singing or just having a good time.
