Salmon Hockey's 2014 season kicked off over the weekend with two high school boy (division: Midgets) games against Butte, Montana. All ages of hockey players were able to get on the ice as of last Monday, after a crew of volunteers and rink manager Bob Barningham toiled for days to make ice for the rink.
More information about upcoming tournaments, practice times and more are available at www.salmonhockey.org.
Jeff Knudson, SHA president, says several businesses are asking him about advertising at the rink. Businesses can advertise with a small ad on the outside of the rink, a large ad inside the rink, or have an ad on the Zamboni for the entire season. Knudson said a major change for advertisers this year is that they will be listed on the organization's website, while non-advertisers will not. "The Salmon Hockey website is the go-to place for information for visiting teams so this is a huge value for businesses."

Four potential trail corridors have undergone an initial screening. These potential trail corridors include Highway 93 South to the Shoup Bridge, Highway 93 North to Carmen Bridge, Discovery Hill to Carmen Creek Road, and the Salmon River corridor from Morgan Bar to Island Park. These segments were assessed to determine what issues existed in terms of private property concerns, right-of-way boundaries and authorities, existing uses, physical constraints, and public support. Summaries of these findings will be presented at theDecember 2 meeting.
The next step of the study is to select two candidate trail segments for a more detailed analysis. Public input is being solicited to help determine which trail segments have the greatest likelihood of being constructed in the foreseeable future, and therefore prioritized for further study.
"The trail segments that are being considered are intended to be used by the public, so it's so important that members of the public chime in to let us know which trails would best serve their needs and interests," said Michelle Tucker of Salmon Valley Stewardship, one of the feasibility study team members.

Lemhi County celebrated 4-H achievement in 2014 on Saturday, September 13 with an awards picnic at the Lemhi County fairgrounds. The Achievement Awards ceremony serves to close out our fair season and the 4-H membership year. We recognize those members and leaders who have put hours of hard work into their projects and club activities.
4-H members are recognized for their accomplishments; leaders for their dedication and service. Our 4-H member Achievement Awards event was sponsored in large part by the generosity of Summit National Bank, who provided funding for our Showmanship awards, showmanship fair prizes, and Outstanding Project awards. Awards were also sponsored by the 4-H Jr. Livestock Committee and the 4-H Horsemen.
This year, the awards event began with fun and games scheduled at 11am. Each club brought a dish or lunch materials to share. Hamburgers and hotdogs, provided by Lemhi 4-H, were expertly grilled by Dallas Dupree. Lunch was followed by the Virtual Carcass Contest awards. Carcass desirability is determined using the livestock ultra-sound images taken during weigh-in at the Lemhi County Fair and the recorded animal weights to calculate carcass characteristics. The three livestock species evaluated, beef, sheep and swine, were judged on carcass quality and yield grade.
The highest quality beef carcass award went to Kyler Allen for his market steer, the quality carcass for sheep belongs to Audrey Dorony, and the quality swine carcass award went to Billy Godfrey. The reserve carcass award went to Colton Phillips for beef, the sheep award to Tristan Cooper for his market lamb, with market swine reserve going to Alexia Anders.
The Lemhi County 4-H Program would be lost without its loyal supporters. We attempt to thank our supporters by choosing individuals, who have continuously supported our 4-H programs in a positive manner, to receive the Friend of 4-H Award. This year’s Friend of 4-H certificate was awarded in honor of the memory Jim Playfair of Lemhi, for his generous and enthusiastic support of Lemhi County 4-H.
Individual Completion Awards were presented to club members, who have completed projects in the past 4-H year, by their club leaders. Clubs with members receiving project awards are Farm & Home, Leadore Trail Blazers, Barnyard Buckaroos, Busy Bees, WhiteWater, Country Canines, Salmon Sporting Clays, Carmen Coyotes, Bits & Boots, Salmon Swine, Salmon River Wranglers, Pahsimeroi Stock & Stitch and TAC Team.

This is an ongoing award for participants in the Lemhi County 4-H Style Revue, based on clothing construction scores and contestant placing in the modeling portion of the Revue.

This year, the Superior Beef Award, sponsored by Idaho Cattle Association, was awarded to Merari Ramirez for her hard work, dedication to her project and willingness to help others.
During the fair, clean stall votes were taken and awarded to individual 4-H members for three livestock species. Individual 4-H member awards are sponsored by Tom and Cari Whitson. The winners were Katarina Whitson in beef, Dakota McIntosh in sheep, and R J Foster in the swine category.
Our invaluable club leaders received a small gift of appreciation as the awards ceremony wound down. The work of leaders, the Extension Office staff and many other volunteers has made this 2013-14 4-H year a success in our county. Lemhi County 4-H truly appreciates each and every one of them.
We are ready to begin a new 4-H year. Please join us to make 2014-2015 an even better year in Lemhi County 4-H.
