to the editor from this week's Chronicle:
Letter to the Editor
We thought we would write a letter saying Thank You to Jeanette Kelly!
We want to thank you for your kind generosity to our community of picking
up the garbage along the highway from St. Gertrude’s Monastery to Cottonwood.
It goes without saying that it is such a wonderful thing that you do to
make our dive on that stretch of highway a more beautiful one!
So next time you see Jeanette walking and picking up garbage, maybe
give her a big wave or honk and let her know you appreciate it too!

Below are several of the Letters to the Editor we received this week.
We give subscribers first crack. We received several others as well and
will try to get them all in before the election.
To the Editor
I would like to ask for your support for Jim Chmelik for Idaho County
Commissioner. Jim Chmelik has stuck around and worked hard for the
people of Idaho County for a long time. Whether it is lobbying down
in the legislature, volunteering his time to the Idaho County Republican
Central Committee as precinct committee person, secretary and now as vice-chairman,
or supporting our children at the annual 4-H sale, he believes in the values
of Idaho County and it's people. He and Colleen are raising their family
here and paying taxes in Idaho County. Now he wants to go to work for you.
Let's give him a shot to put that enthusiasm to work for us. He and
the other two current commissioner would do a good job of running the county
as efficiently as possible. Join me in voting for Jim Chmelik for
Idaho County Commissioner on Nov. 2.
Idaho now faces a critical election this November 2nd. Please
join me in the battle of protecting unborn children by helping to elect
Raul Labrador to the United States Congress.
Since being elected to the Idaho House in 2006, Raul Labrador has proven
to be an effective pro-life leader; he has supported and voted for
key prolife legislation throughout his legislative career and has earned
a 100% pro-life voting record. He has voted to allow a woman the right
to view the ultrasound image of her unborn child before an abortion is
performed on her, and he was also a sponsor of the Conscience Protection
Bill for health care professionals.
Raul has and is aggressively opposing the Obama Health care law which
will provide government funding for health plans that pay for abortion
on demand and which will lead to the rationing of life saving medical treatments.
For being such a strong advocate of life, he has been endorsed by the National
Right to Life Political Action Committee.
His opponent, Walt Minnick, supports a policy of abortion on demand
and voted against an amendment that would have prohibited federal funding
of abortion on demand in all parts of the Obama health care bill. He has
also been endorsed by NARAL—National Abortion Rights Action League.
Please join me in supporting Raul Labrador, the only pro-life candidate
running for the First Congressional District for United States Congress.

When I think of a family that possesses a strong moral commitment to
God, to family and to country, I think of the Felix and Sherry Nuxoll family.
When Sherry made the decision to run for the Idaho Senate 8th District,
it was a decision that was made with the full support of her husband and
family—because that is how they do things—as a family.
As long as I have known them, they have been strong advocates of life
which is reflected in the love they have for each other and for each of
their 6 beautiful children and 3 grandchildren.
The pro-life issue is one of the things that have always been dear
to their hearts. I know with all certainty that Sherry will reflect and
aggressively defend familial and pro-life values and rights if she is elected
to the Idaho Senate.
I encourage all to support and vote for Sheryl Nuxoll for the Idaho
Senate District 8 this November 2nd.

Letter to the Editor,
To the voters of Idaho County,
In the upcoming election we have two men seeking the seat of Idaho
Jim Chmelik came to Idaho County a number of years ago. He married
a lady who is from a local family. Her forefathers came to Idaho County
over a hundred years ago and their descendants are still here.
Not only did Jim Chmelik settle here with his family, he also brought
to Idaho County his successful cabinet and furniture business. Jim knows
what it is to meet a payroll and keep his business running smoothly and
his business has added to the Idaho County tax base.
Jim has had to make his own way and is a self-made man who wants to
make a better future for our children and grandchildren.
As far as schools go, he and his wife send their children to a private
school for which they pay the tuition charge. Remember that they also pay
their share of taxes to support the public schools.
We have had enough of the politician who all he knows is how to spend
money. We need more people like Jim Chmelik who knows how to create economy
and save, who also works to make our community a better place to be.
That is why we are voting for Jim Chmelik. He will put Idaho County
and its citizens first.
Vote November 2.
In God We Trust,

No Need to Change, Re-Elect Jim Rehder for County Commissioner
I fully support Idaho County Commissioner Jim Rehder and would like
Salmon River Canyon residents to join me in voting for his reelection.
He consistently attends Riggins area meetings and offers valuable insight
and solutions to issues. Jim comes to visit our community as often
as he can, and he listens to our needs and goals, rather than us having
to travel to a commissioner meeting in Grangeville to be heard. He
is always available when we have issues or concerns--Jim represents us
well. He is interested in the progress and betterment of Idaho County
and works hard to move it forward. My motto is, "If it isn't broken,
don't fix it." He is an established and proven commissioner for Idaho
County, so please join me to re-elect Jim Rehder as our County Commissioner.
To the Editor
I have worked with Jim Rehder both personally and professionally
quite often during his service as Idaho County Commissioner. Jim is
doing an outstanding job of keeping roads and trails open to the public
and fighting off the evil entities that would further restrict public use
of the Salmon River. He understands the value and economic need for recreation
and tourism in Idaho County.
Wolves were relisted on August 5, 2010. Since then Jim, as well as
the other County Commissioners, have been dedicated to finding a means
of managing wolf populations that would minimize and /or eliminate
the economic hardships that unmanaged wolves inflict upon livestock and
wildlife of Idaho County.
The Salmon River Gun Club(SRGC) and the shooting public are very greatful
to Jim for his hard work in finding a suitable site for a gun range
and helping to have the site conveyed to the SRGC. This will provide
a proper location to conduct Hunter Safety courses as well as
provide the public with safe shooting facilities.
Jim has been doing an outstanding job as County Commissioner. Voters
should RE-ELECT JIM REHDER on November 2.
To the Editor
Will the real conservative, please stand up. I have known Jim
Chmelik now for 22 years and I will vouch for his true conservative colors.
He is the pro-life, pro-business, low tax, small government Republican
in the race. He is no Johnny come lately to the conservative cause.
He believes in growing our existing tax base through the creation of jobs
within the private sector, not raising taxes like the Democrat commissioner
advocated for in this year’s budgeting hearings. I think that it
is time for a change, please join me in supporting Jim Chmelik Nov.2.
