The GOP Bus Tour came through Cottonwood last Thursday. In the top photo Cottonwood Mayor Denis Duman, center, meets with Congressional candidate Raul Labrador, left, and lieutenant governor Brad Little. Governor Butch Otter was supposed to be here too but was in Twin Falls trying to close the deal on the new calling center there. The lower photo shows the crew that were on the bus as well as Cottonwood's Shorty and Marge Arnzen.

A photo of Dr. Wesley Orr hangs in the hospital.  His influence prompted the Sisters of St. Gertrude to first open a hospital in 1930. See story above left.

On October 16, Troop/Pack 638 attended the Clearwater Corn Maze near the Lewiston Roundup grounds. It took us a little less than an hour to find our way through many turns and lots of dead ends. On the back of the map they gave us were 10 Idaho related questions that were posted throughout the maze for us to locate. If you haven’t been there yet, it’s worth the time to go. We all had a blast. After the amazing time we had there, we had a picnic lunch at one of the local parks.  We then were on another mission to the “Rock and Gem Show” being held at the Nez Perce County Fair Building. Our Webelos: Carson Schmidt, Anthony Karel, Hunter Chaffee and Jared Coppernoll, learned a lot about different types of rocks and gems. They brought home lots of samples and information to achieve their Webelos Geology pin.
Also attending the show were Matt Coppernoll, Caleb Butler and Juliette Girl Scout Ciara Chaffee. These scouts also benefited from this experience by working in their scouting books.
Shown above are the scouts and others at the Corn Maze.  Front from left are Caleb Butler, Aurelia Bruno, Ciara Chaffee, Hunter Chaffee, Jared Coppernoll, Travis Alfrey, Carson Schmidt, Matt Coppernoll, Cole Martin and Justin Lockett. Middle row are Della Sprute, Seth Chaffee, Spencer, Remington Sprute, Emma Butler and Ember Martin. Back from left are Shari Chaffee, Laurie Karel, Anthony Karel, Jessica and Ellie Butler, Pat & Laurine Alfrey, Morgan Butler, Keith and Aleta Coppernoll, Jeff & Summer Martin and Ashton, Cassie Lockett and friend and Dan Karel.
