It's Christmas In August at the Lemhi County Farmers' Market

Tue, 07/29/2014 - 16:04
Article Category: Event ArticlesIt’s Christmas in August this weekend at the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market.  All of the vendors are getting into the spirit as it is never too early to plan ahead of time. Stocking stuffers come to mind with items like handmade antler handle knives and antler toothpick holders found at Rustic Knives.  PhotographyByJesse.com is offering a plan for a family or individual photo session for your Christmas cards for $45.00 if booked this week.  From Diane Klich, look for her new line of felt critters as well as a new batch of antler necklaces.  Plus her herbed vinegars are priced to sale.  All her herbs are grown on her own property without pesticides or herbicides. This weekend begins our weekly launch of “From Field to Table”. The first demonstration will be presented by Loryhl Davis, owner of Herbs of the World.  Loryhl will be sharing recipes of a variety of vinegars and their varied applications at 11:30 am.  The markets’ second weekly launch “Know the Old Ways” will feature homemade laundry soap presented by Julie Parker at 10:00 am.  Bring a small container if you would like to take home a sample. The great thing about shopping at the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market is everyone has the opportunity to try the many different varieties of vegetables grown right here in the Lemhi Valley.  Even for those of us who keep our own gardens, it is always fun to try out our taste buds with something new.  For example, Lebanese Bush Marrow and Zephyr squash, Suyo Long Japanese cucumbers or Daikon radish will all be available from Swift River Farms.  Purchasing from the Farmers’ Market is also an excellent opportunity to stock up on items for canning, pickling, drying and freezing.  Tomatoes, eggplant, summer squash, cucumbers, onions and summer greens are all in high demand this week and are available right here at the Farmers’ Market. Thanks to a generous donation from the Kiwanis and private donation, the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market is able to extend a helping hand to recipients of the food stamp program.  For a limited time clients can receive an additional $10.00 of funds for shopping at the market.  Purchases of farm fresh produce, breads, eggs, jams, jelly, and meat are all available at the market.  Please stop by the market manager’s booth for more information on how you can stretch your food budget each week.   The Farmers’ Market is selling raffle tickets for the 2014 Lemhi County Farmers’ Market Gift Basket.  All proceeds are earmarked for needed equipment. Be sure to stop by Swift River Farms, booth 17, to purchase your raffle tickets for the Salmon Whitewater Park Project.  The prize is a fully loaded AIRE raft including frame, oars, and all the extras.   You can change your world and make it a better place by visiting the Lemhi County Farmer’s Market every week and supporting our local farmers and artisans.  Be sure to “like” us on Facebook.  If you would like more information on how you can participate in the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market or future Flea Markets, please contact market manager Julie Parker at 208.643.4581 or via email busy.4.juliep@gmail.com. See you at the market!

Participate in the Health and Lifestyles Survey!

Article Category: Human Interest

          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!

Article Category: Event ArticlesWith the success of our newly formed flea market, the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market is ready to launch another project.   “From Field to Table” mixed with “Know the Old Ways” we would like to share with the community tips and tricks that we have learned along the way.  And this invitation is extended to everyone in the county.  Nothing fancy, but a short demonstration to keep the knowledge flowing, for example how to make your own catsup or cleaning products.  Share a favorite recipe with a demonstration.  Something simple and easy to prepare.  All of the demonstrations will be collected and made available to the public.  Please watch our website lemhicountyfarmersmarket.org or Facebook for dates and times. Our returning guest musician for this weekend is Brian Ernst, who will be performing throughout the day.  Take a look at their website Journey4YOUth.org.  The mission statement for this nonprofit states the organization is committed to helping the poor prosper through empowerment and sustainability.  Their goal is to create a worldwide movement of people who dedicate themselves to helping their neighbor. Katie and Brian tour the US in their converted full sized school bus which the fuel source is waste vegetable oil.  Take a tour of their veggie bus. You can change your world and make it a better place by visiting the Lemhi County Farmer’s Market every week and supporting our local farmers and artisans.  Be sure to “like” us on Facebook.  If you would like more information on how you can participate in the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market or future Flea Markets, please contact market manager Julie Parker at 208.643.4581 or via email busy.4.juliep@gmail.com. See you at the market!

Date Set for CDL Training in Salmon!

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 14:48
Article Category: Education

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.

2014 Top 100 Critical Access Hospital

Fri, 07/11/2014 - 08:05
Article Category: NEWSHospital News

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.

It's "Art at the Market" This Saturday

Thu, 07/10/2014 - 11:44
Article Category: Event ArticlesThe first flea market of the Lemhi County Farms Market was nothing short of a huge success. Even the Farmers’ Market vendors brought their flea market items.  Our next flea market will be August 16 and we hope to have an even larger group of vendors.  The Market would like to thank the Student Conservation Association for being on hand to assist the vendors with the off and on loading of vendor booths.  SCA’s mission is to build the next generation of conservation leaders and inspire lifelong stewardship of the environment and communities by engaging young people in hands-on service to the land.  We would also like to thank Wilderness Ranger Rachel Kaufman for her educational booth as this is the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act.  Both of these organizations will be attending the market from time to time during the 2014 season. This coming market of July 12 is being hosted by the Salmon Arts Council’s Art at the Market.  Young artists can participate in a scrapbook “Make and Take” conducted by Sonja Sage and “Batik Quilting” presented by Ella Deutchman.  Add a note to your calendar on July 19 as Brian Ernst will be returning to Salmon and performing throughout the day.  Take a look at his website www.brianernstmusic.com and his non-profit organization www.journey4YOUth.com.  He and his wife Katie travel all over the world performing, but when traveling here in the states they drive a modified school bus driven with vegetable oil.  Definitely worth the effort to visit his YouTube posts about their journey in a veggie driven bus. You can change your world and make it a better place by visiting the Lemhi County Farmer’s Market every week and supporting our local farmers and artisans.  Be sure to “like” us on Facebook.  If you would like more information on how you can participate in the Lemhi County Farmers’ Market or future Flea Markets, please contact market manager Julie Parker at 208.643.4581 or via email busy.4.juliep@gmail.com.See you at the market!
