Indian Valley was so very blessed to have had Sandy Coates within their midst for many years. With her passing from this, world and on to her next adventure, let us all remember her strength, dedication and love that she shared with so many. When you go outside and feel an extremely warm ray of sunshine touching your cheek, or at night see that one star that beams brighter than all the" rest of the universe, remember this wonderful friend and know she will always remain in our hearts. Condolences are with her family at this time.

Wanna Belle Coriell had a wonderful weekend. She headed off to Nampa to join family in the celebration of the 50th wedding anniversary of brother Ed and Elaine Woods.

Sunday, they all headed to New Meadows for the Valley Days celebration, and, as always, had a blast together visiting and wandering around. They enjoyed lunch at the Granite Mountain Cafe.

Tony and Wanda Morgensen had a very unwelcome visitor this past week. While they were making a trip to Mountain Home for the day, a bear came to visit and tore down one half of a pear tree and broke several others. Needless to say, they knew it was a bear by the "calling cards" he left throughout the yard as he enjoyed the sweet fruit!

Bill and Ruth Reeder enjoyed having Tyler, Amanda and Tristan Hensley visit from Moscow. They arrived on Friday evening and spent the weekend with them. Ted and Pat Roland came from Ontario for a visit on Sunday afternoon.

Jim and Patty Shaw greatly enjoyed their Sunday, heading up Zim's Hot Springs for a soak. After swimming, they went back into New Meadows to check out all the happenings for the Meadows Valley Days, purchasing a huckleberry-apple pie from the senior center. Then it was up to McCall for dinner at Lardo's where Jim enjoyed a nice prime rib dinner, and Patty the grilled salmon.

Lanae Veselka enjoyed a wonderful visit from her grandson, Albin, and his family of Rexburg on Monday afternoon.

Tom and Judy Green, along with Dezi and Alex Graham, made a trip to the dentist in Weiser ori Monday. Since Tom was a good patient, they treated him to McDonald's afterward. Tuesday, Judy headed to Council to visit with her friend, Kathy, for a bit. Wednesday, Tom was craving chicken, so Judy made sure to stop off at M&W after TOPS to bring him home some for dinner. Thursday, Judy was a great blessing to a new family in Cambridge by working with friends to bring a nice dinner in for them on moving in day. Saturday, the Graham Family and Tom went up wood cutting, but gave up when the rain kept coming down harder and harder. Dried out and a bit warmer, they joined with two friends and headed back up to the old ranch on Sunday and this time succeeded in cutting and bringing home some firewood.

Julie Harvey is really enjoying lots of grandma time. Wednesday night Kayden came out and spent the night, and she had fun seeing him off to school on Thursday morning when the bus came. Friday, Michael and Adrian brought the girls, Sydnie, Cadence, Quiynn and Isabella, out to visit and there was lots of cuddling time.

Robin Stephens is settling into the back to school mode. Thursday evening she attended an officer's training meeting in Cambridge for the fire department.

Ron and Janet Meyer enjoyed having daughter Pam and granddaughter Morgan up to visit over the weekend. Of course they enjoyed watching the Bronco's pull out a win on Friday evening. Saturday, Janet and Pam had to wait for the power to come back on so grandma could make a special breakfast promised for Morgan, but as soon as it clicked on they were headed out in search of yard sales. Janet said she didn't find any great treasures, but she didn't come home with the back of the vehicle empty either!
