Kendra Bradley

Kendra Bradley has lived in our area for quite a while. Unfortunately she circulated in the drug community for much of that time.

She has pulled herself out of that situation and is clean now and living a different life.

Kendra is a hard worker and would do well in many jobs, but she lacks a car to get around. I am going to donate what I can and I urge all of you to step up and help this woman to  continue her rescue.

We cannot continue to trash drug users unless  they are beyond help. But those that have dragged themselves out of the Meth disaster, deserve our help to rehabilitate themselves.

I don't know whether she has a bank account, but if you send donations to me I will see that she gets every penny of it. Label it  "Kendra."

If I ever thought I was important or a stand out community leader, I have been truly humbled. This morning's CDA Press had a story citing a VIP preview of the new Super One store opening today in Athol.

In an act of class warfare, the store held a preview Tuesday for the 300 most influential residents. I was not invited. I now have been relegated to at least the 301st most important resident. They haven't named those that are more valuable and I'm kind of wondering who they might be.

Alas, humbled as I am, 23 year customer of Super One, back when it was Ron's Market, I will still shop there, but as a peasant, not a VIP.

Birthday Party

I didn't count them but I would guesstimate that over forty friends and relatives attended my 80th birthday party which the Captain's Wheel organized for me.

There were three of four adult children present and a ton of grandkids, great-grandkids and many friends. It was an enjoyable experience, to say the least. I want to thank everyone for the cards and gifts. Since most of them were sent through my son, I don't have return addresses to send thank you notes but be assured I know who you are, and appreciate the gesture.

Some friends couldn't make it and they were missed. Planning has started for my 90th, plan on being there.

Mike in WV if you read this please call me at my new #. 208-683-1294.

I would be remiss if I didn't say thank you to Chan for deeply discounting the motel rooms, making it possible for my family to afford for the occasion.

Gun Control???

When will leftist elitist Gun Control advocates figure out that guns do not commit crimes. The person operating it does.

Just as forks do not cause obesity, cars do not cause accidents, etc. It is the person behind all of these things that is guilty. It is called behavior.

Off on another subject, My birthday party at the Captain's Wheel will take place Saturday, March 24 starting at 4:00 pm. I'll be 80 years old. Everyone is welcome. Party time.

13 Days and Counting

In 13 days I will against all odds, reach the well seasoned age of 80. Yes, that isn't a misprint. I will reach that milestone March 23, with a community wide birthday party to follow, Saturday March 24 at around 3 or 4 pm as folks trickle in to the Captain's Wheel who is sponsoring this gathering.

I would recount many of my adventures along the way if I could only remember them.

Grandchildren, Great-Grandchildren and friends from all over will help me celebrate.

It all started when I announced to my adult children that I would much rather have a family reunion while I am still alive, than have them attend a funeral from which I wouldn't be in a position to participate. If you know me and wish to drop by please do so.

In Home Care givers

The caring of elderly people at home is dependent upon having some help of various types so that they are not force into assisted living facilities.

Currently, while authorized 6 hours per week of this service, no care giver has surfaced that has those hours to spare in the Bayview/Athol area.

If anyone is interested in part time work like this, please contact me at or call 208-683-1294.

I will turn 80 next month, which brings up another point. An open house no host birthday party will be held at the Captain's Wheel, Saturday March 24 starting at 4 pm and ending ... Come on down.

Athol Super One

This morning's CDA Press revealed that the contractor that is building the Athol Super One has been placed in receivership and all projects have ceased.

While programed to open in Mid-March, this likely will be delayed. So close to being finished, it will still likely take some time to sort out the potential liens from sub-contractors that are sure to appear.

This could be a huge disappointment to we that usually do the 50 mile round trip to Hayden.

Anyone that has good info on this situation, please leave a comment.
