Highway work to start Monday

The Idaho Transportation Department announced Wednesday that road resurfacing on a 3.6-mile section of state Highway 75 in the vicinity of Timmerman Junction will start next week, possibly as early as Monday.

A 10-mile resurfacing project on U.S. Highway 20 on either side of Timmerman Junction is expected to start the following week, according to ITD.

Both projects are contracted to Knife River Corporation. The work is expected to be completed in late June.

Project restores historic images

The Community Library in Ketchum today, May 11 will exhibit restored Union Pacific railroad photos of Sun Valley from the 1940s and 50s. Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served at the event beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The library's regional history department owns the collection of thousands of Kodachrome color transparencies. The Wattis Dumke Foundation and Idaho State Historical Society provided funding for the restoration and presentation. Multi-media specialist Kathleen Cameron began work on the photos in October.

St. Luke's stresses importance of checkups

St. Luke's Wood River will help valley residents celebrate National Women's Health Week by encouraging annual checkups and offering incentives to do so.

The health awareness week runs from May 14-18.

Regular checkups can help lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other serious diseases, according to a news release issued by St. Luke's.

Once patients have scheduled a checkup, they can visit to register to win prizes, including Boise Music Festival concert tickets, an overnight stay at Cactus Pete's and more.

"Taking just one week out of the year to focus on your health could add years to your life, so here's to celebrating your best health," the news release states.
