Micah Cox, the tall guy on the left who serves as commander of the Challis Unit of Custer County Search and Rescue (SAR), accepts a donation from Idaho Outfitters and Guides Association (IOGA) representatives Louise Stark and Travis Bullock of Challis. Stark, of White Cloud Outfitters and Bullock, of Mile High Outfitters, said outfitting is a big part of Custer County 's history, and a donation to Custer County SAR makes sense. Both outfitters and SAR volunteers work to keep the hunting and fishing public safe. The Salmon River Chapter of IOGA serves both Custer and Lemhi counties. The outfitters' chapter holds two fundraiser per year, a dinner in March and a barbecue at the Salmon Select Horse Sale in April. Both fundraisers did well this year, so outfitters donated to SAR units in each county and scholarships at Challis and Salmon high schools

Saturday's second Lemhi County Farmers' Market of the 2014 season was another huge success. The weather was a bit scary at times, but overall it was cooperative to the very end. 

Father’s day at the Farmers’ Market was so exciting. The Salmon Arts Council was host to “Art in the Market”. Kids were making masks and there were artists on hand for face painting. It was such a joy to watch these kids dance with excitement and interact with the other children. Lots of picture taking going on. Live music was provided by Connie Delaney, Wayne Talmadge, Eric Fross and featuring Erica Fross. It was such a pleasure to have their music in the background as we visited the vendors and we thank them for a job well done. You are welcomed any time you choose to come back and play again.

The third annual Jeff Allen and Shane Heath Memorial 5K/10K/Half-Marathon will be held this Saturday, June 15th at the Indianola Helibase located on the North Fork Ranger District of the Salmon-Challis National Forest.
