It was a big Christmas weekend for Ralph and Debbie Stubbers. Not only were the kids home for Christmas, they received a Century Farm certificate and plaque from the Idaho State Historical Society (ISHS), the Idaho Department of Agriculture and the Governorís office. The award is given to a family that has held its farm in the family for 100 or more years. So far they have recognized over 400 Century Farms in Idaho.  Earl Bennett of Genesee had the privilege of officiating the ceremony on behalf of the ISHS. He said it is the first such award he has given on Christmas day. IDs are 1--David Stubbers, 2--Juliana DeBlois, 3--Aidan DeBlois,  4--Jason Stubbers, 5--Heidi McRoberts , 6--Debbie Stubbers, 7--James Stubbers, 8--Rachel Stubbers, 9--Gerard DeBlois,  10--Anna DeBlois, 11--Lydia McRoberts, 12--Sydney McRoberts, 13--Ralph Stubbers, 14--Craig Stubbers.

You can get an idea how much snow weíve had by the size of the pile on the west end of The Tire Guy lot. As you can see the top of the pile isnít far from the bottom of the candy cane Christmas decoration on the pole. And despite the size of the pile there was still a good size berm down the middle of Main Street which was a good 2+ feet high and 4-5 feet wide (berm was removed by ITD on Wednesday).
