If you're planning to hunt the Rapid River country near Riggins, you may experience delays.
Reconstruction work continues on the trail, and stock users can expect 1-2 hour delays through Friday, which is opening day of deer season.
The trail will remain open to foot travel. Work on the trail will continue through November. The contractor will notify the Forest Service on the Friday of the week preceding anticipated trail closures.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is seeking information about the person or people responsible for the killing and wasting a bull moose.
The moose was killed on Sept. 26 or 27, north of Fairfield in the Rosetta Creek (Forest Service Rd. 471) drainage of Big Game Unit 44 near Warswick Hot Springs.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Citizen’s Against Poaching Hotline at 1-800-632-5999 or the Magic Valley Regional Office at 208-324-4359. Callers may remain anonymous and a reward may be issued for information leading to a conviction.
The Statesman editorial board sat down recently with U.S. Senate candidate Pro-Life (known formerly as Marvin Richardson, before he legally changed his name) and his wife, state Senate candidate Kirsten Faith Richardson.
The candidates, organic strawberry farmers by trade, showed up for their interviews with two flats of fresh and tasty strawberries in tow. A bit of a departure from many other candidates, who have only raspberries for the editorial board.

The extension of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self-Determination Act, brings back from the dead Resource Advisory Councils that direct a portion of the spending of the funds on projects like weed control, habitat improvement and fire prevention.
These councils, called by participants RACS , included a wide membership including labor and industry, environmentalists, recreation people, elected officials, tribal representatives and educators.

There is nothing that scares the heck out of paddlers than trees across the river and blind curves.
I mentioned the downed tree in the Boise River upstream from Glenwood Bridge that surprised some canoeists and other floaters this summer. It's in the section of river if you float from Americana Boulevard to Glenwood or from Willow Lane to Glenwood.
