Indian Valley & Mesa News

I had a request to ask anyone remembering Rodney Cameron to send him a note. Rodney graduated from Cambridge High School around 1954, grew up in Indian Valley, and recently lived in Council. Rodney just moved to an assisted living facility in Fruitland and would love to hear from anyone. His address is Rodney Cameron, Edgewood Spring Creek Assisted Living, 1255 North Allen Ave, Room #216 Fruitland, ID 83619.

Pat and Martha Ball and family greatly enjoyed attending the 50th anniversary for St. Jude's Catholic Church in Council on Sunday. After mass, members met at the Veterans Park Hall for a potluck.

Tuesday morning found Larry Boehm and Bev Galloway up on the mountain so Larry could check fences and survey the property. Wednesday they headed to Ontario for their physical therapy appointments and enjoyed seeing Cycle Oregon leaving Cambridge. The following day they worked out at the Council fitness center. Saturday, the couple was headed back down below to join Ken and Jennifer Galloway and extended family to watch grandson Andrew play football. After the game, the family enjoyed a lovely meal at a Chinese restaurant near the campus. Then, they all went to watch Andrew's girlfriend, Katy Robinson, play volleyball. Bev really enjoyed the intensity of college volleyball play. Sunday, they tried to visit friend John Bonner in Midvale, but didn't find him home. They did enjoy a nice visit with friend Jack Wright who was out working in his garden. They stopped at Lakey's Cafe for supper and enjoyed visiting with a multitude of friends while there.

Jack and Jill Doughton attended the Eagle

Saturday Market over the weekend, displaying Jack's craftsmanship. This is the last of Jack's shows there until spring. Now it's time for both of them to begin thinking of all the fall and Christmas shows coming up soon.

Bridget Brest is healing from her recent injury in which she broke her hand! Back around Labor Day she tried to get her horse Marley's attention by poking him with her pinky and ended up getting the doctors attention to her hand. (Proof when your horse is doing the two-step while you try to clean their hoofs, you don't try to join in!) So, with cast on her hand until around October 12th, she is going bonkers not being able to knit or go riding. She is, however, becoming quite proficient at putting together jigsaw puzzles. She did join the walk with her fellow Angel Riders, where they rode inflatable stick horses for a mile for the Angel Wings Cancer Network Walk/Run.

Don and Jackie Dowdy have been putting together a barbeque that their son from Bakersfield sent them. They had mentioned they were looking for a small gas barbeque to replace their old one, and a gigantic package arrived, containing a fully equipped, monster of a barbeque. They are proud of themselves though, as they hadn't lost a single screw, but they did have one extra nut!

Tony and. Wanda Morgensen enjoyed having daughters Marcia and Toni Lynn, along with brother Lynn, visit over the weekend. Wanda loved having her girls help with making apricot jam, and Tony really appreciated the extra help in getting the haystack covered.

Jim and Patty Shaw enjoyed an overnight visit down to Nampa and Caldwell on Wednesday for shopping and a visit with their friends Paul and Tammy.

Dave and Cathy Veselka enjoyed having daughter Helen Greer and grandson Mackade come to visit from Twin Falls this past week.

Lanae Veselka also enjoyed having Helen and Mackade come to visit her on Thursday, and playing games throughout the day. Friday, her very special friend, Marilyn Hollon, came to visit.

Tom Green enjoyed having a phone call from his old friend and co-worker, Doug Haverland of Boise. Larry Boehm and Bev also came by for a visit during the week. Saturday and Sunday, Tom enjoyed heading up to the old ranch with the Graham family to gather firewood.

Great Grandma Joan Lakey and Grandma Julie Harvey are really enjoying the fall sports this year. Thursday, they were able to watch the Cambridge Titans vs Council Lumberjacks Jr. High game and cheer on Kayden for the Titans. Then they watched the volleyball game and cheered on Sydnie for the Lumberjacks. As Grandma Julie has always said, she cheers for the good plays of each team and sits on her hands at other times, but has to admit that cheering on grandchildren is a special blessing. Volleyball time in Council had an added benefit of being able to have some special cuddling time with granddaughter, Isabella.

Craig Boll enjoyed working as part of the honor guard team at The Boise Center on the Grove on Monday. Ardis was kept busy as Cycle Oregon hit Cambridge. Craig and dad, Vic Boll, enjoyed some dove hunting time on Saturday and did well. Hayden is through with work and is off camping for nine days before heading back to school. Ardis enjoyed a nice lunch with daughter, Meagan on Saturday in Boise after taking an educational class in the morning.
