Rocket Blast-Off! - Katie Hoffman,
County Extension Agent
Salmon, Idaho is one of 25 towns in 25 states across the U.S. selected to participate in an epidemiological health study survey! In the 1990s, thousands of compounds, known as phytochemicals, were and continue to be discovered in our whole plant-based foods. These compounds have shown, in the lab and through other research studies, to have strong healing properties, affirming Hippocrates’ wisdom when centuries ago he said, “Let food be your medicine and medicine your food.”
If you are between the ages of 50 to 68 (baby boomer generation), and have resided in Salmon or Lemhi County for a minimum of five years, we invite you to participate in this nutrition and lifestyle health study survey. It is a 3-page multiple choice survey that takes an average of 10 minutes to complete, and maintains the highest level of credibility by guaranteeing complete confidentiality and anonymity (no names).
Join us on Monday, August 11th anytime between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Library to participate in this important and unique research. Copies of any publications of the combined results from all 500+ participants across the U.S. will be mailed to the City Managers and libraries of each town.
Please contact Ramona Stauffer at the library for more information or with any questions. We look forward to including the citizens of Salmon, Idaho, in our research study!
SAGE Trucking from Blackfoot, ID, is bringing CDL training to Salmon.
Start Date: October 6
Registration Deadline: September 22
Student Loans Available through a partnership between SAGE and Mountain America Credit Union.
This type of training offered locally is a rare opportunity. Don't miss out!
Contact Mr. Lynn Jorgensen at 208-782-2282 to learn more and sign up.
Consider this: Although there are other CDL programs available throughout the state, some possibly cheaper, some have waiting lists and none offer the convenience of being home every night after class. You may even be able to make arrangements at your current job in order to keep working throughout the duration of the class. So when comparison shopping for a CDL training program, be sure to consider travel costs, lodging out of town, wear and tear on your vehicle (and your family!), and you will see that local training is a better option.

STEELE MEMORIAL MEDICAL CENTER Named iVantage HEALTHSTRONG™
Top 100 Critical Access Hospital
Steele Memorial Medical Center (SMMC) in Salmon, Idaho was recently named one of the iVantage
HEALTHSTRONG Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) in the United States.
“Steele Memorial Medical Center is proud of the efforts of all our providers, volunteers and
employees who have contributed to our medical center achieving this designation,” said Dennis Lile,
SMMC’s Board Chairman. “Hospitals are being challenged like never before to maintain their
performance," said SMMC CEO, Jeff Hill. "It is an honor for SMMC to receive this award and
serve as a role model for other hospitals.”
Steele Memorial Medical Center scored in the top 100 of Critical Access Hospitals on the iVantage
Hospital Strength INDEX™. The INDEX is the industry’s most comprehensive rating of US acute
care hospitals, and the only one to include the country’s 1,300 CAHs. The results recognize that the
Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals provide a safety net to communities across rural America –
measuring them across 66 different performance metrics, including quality, outcomes, patient
perspective, affordability, population risk and efficiency. The list of the top 100 Critical Access
Hospitals and more information about the study can be found at www.iVantageHealth.com.
Rural healthcare plays a vital role for communities across America, serving nearly 80 million people.
The services provided in rural America are similar to those needed in any major metropolitan area,
yet the volumes and economic resources provide little economies of scale, making for little benefit
from scale. SMMC exhibits a focused concern for their community benefits and needs, regardless of
scale, reimbursement and people’s ability to pay.
