Cheers: A great big thank you to everyone who made Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge’s Creepy Critter Encounters event a success. Despite the cold and the wind, we enjoyed sharing creepy critters with almost 300 volunteers. That wouldn’t have been possible without many Refuge volunteers, exhibitors from Idaho Herpetological Society, storytellers from Nampa Public Library, and support from Palouse-Clearwater Environmental Institute AmeriCorps members and Friends of Deer Flat Wildlife REfuge. The enthusiasm of volunteers and partners to connect people to nature made this event truly special!

Jeers to the thrift store that I donated to, a very big donation and got a 20% coupon off your next purchase. Well, you cannot use that coupon on any items that are clearance, so I said I would use my senior discount. Cannot use that either!

Cheers: A great big cheer to Nampa’s Skyview High School for their Veterans Day Assembly. Everything on the program was respectful and honored active duty and former service members. Particularly poignant was the reading of letters from children to parents who gave the last full measure of service. To not also mention the choir’s singing of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, the presentation of colors by Nampa Police Department and the playing of Taps by a band member would be a disservice. If you didn’t attend this year, strongly recommend doing so in 2020. Thanks Skyview for remembering us!

Cheers! For Nampa Rake-Up. Great people who volunteer their help to clean up your yard full of leaves.

Cheers!!! to Rake Up Nampa and all the volunteers from Idaho Power. They did an amazing job. Thank you to Russ and the whole team you are all awesome. We are feeling very Blessed. Bob and Lonnie

Jeers to a Caldwell store for always locking their doors before closing time so customers cannot get into the store, yet still allowing customers inside the store to continue shopping. This has happened several times when we have gone up to the store to grab just one or two items in the evening.

Cheers to Franklin Building Supplies on Caldwell Boulevard for making me laugh when driving by on my way to work. They have amazing jokes posted on their sign, they just crack me up and make my day. Thank you and keep the jokes coming. I’ll continue looking and reading.

Cheers to the real stars of America because they are veterans who have sacrificed more than any Hollywood star or politician who complain and never served. Cheers to veterans because so many have sacrificed so much in the name of country. ... These are real heroes who have witnessed a lot. Cheers to veterans because they are the finest in America and have fought in the air and on land and out to sea, and without them there would be no America or freedom.
