Sell ducks, raise money

The Ketchum-Sun Valley Rotary Club invites Blaine County nonprofit groups to generate funds for their organization through the club's annual Wagon Days Duck Race. Nonprofits are invited to take part in the race and earn money. Organizations will be given $1 for each duck sold for this year's Duck Race.

"Last year, partnered nonprofits raised several thousand dollars for themselves by selling ducks," Duck Race Director Teresa Beahen-Lipman said. "We are happy to extend this unique fundraising opportunity to all Wood River Valley non-profits again this year."

The Rotary Club holds the annual race to raise money for student scholarships and to support other local organizations. The 14th annual Wagon Days Duck Race will run from 1-4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 5, at Rotary Park in Ketchum. For more information, contact sales director Ben Varner at 721-7481 or via e-mail at rotaryben@gmail.com

Last chance for census

The U.S. Census Bureau will set up tents for people to be counted at Ketchum City Hall and the Ketchum Post Office on Friday, July 30, and Saturday, July 31, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. This measure was prompted by reports that there were people who had not been counted. People also can call a toll-free number to provide information over the phone through July 30—in English at (866) 872-6868 or in Spanish at (866) 928-2010.

Each person counted in the census brings $1,400 per year in funding for communities. This means more money for schools, highways and other valuable programs, the Census Bureau said.

Census data is also used to determine Idaho's population to increase representation.

Answers are confidential and secure.

Federal benefits extended

Thousands of Idaho's unemployed workers will see extended federal benefits restored soon after legislation to resume those benefit payments won final congressional approval.

Legislation was approved and signed last week to resume the extended benefit program through Nov. 30 and retroactive to the end of May, when the legislation authorizing the benefits expired. All four members of Idaho's congressional delegation supported extending benefits but voted against the bill because it would add to the federal debt.

Unless they have found jobs, about 11,500 unemployed Idaho workers will receive benefits backdated to the beginning of June, and they will continue receiving those benefits until they have exhausted them under the normal terms of the program. Nearly 43,000 benefit payments were made for unemployed workers the final week of May before the extended benefit program expired. Less than 27,000 were made last week.

Benefit claimants should not contact the Idaho Department of Labor. Eligible Idaho workers will be notified by the department that their benefits will resume. It will take about a week to reprogram computers to handle restoring extended benefits and then several more days to identify and contact the eligible claimants.

BCRD Day Camp presents 'Peter Pan'

The BCRD Day Camp program will present "Peter Pan" on Thursday, July 29, at 2 p.m. at the Community Campus in Hailey. The play, directed by Brita Gaeddert, stars campers ages 6-12 years old that are enrolled in the BCRD Day Camp program.

The campers have spent the past three weeks learning about all aspects of a theatre production including acting, set design and promotion. "Peter Pan," the story of a boy who refuses to grow up, is a great vehicle to showcase the talents of the BCRD campers both on and off the stage. The production is free and open to the public.

Please contact the BCRD at 578-2273 or www.bcrd.org for more information.
