F&G investigates poached deer
    Idaho Department of Fish and Game Officers are investigating an illegal deer kill near Lake Creek Road. The deer was found shot about three-quarters of a mile north of Lake Creek Lake.
    “It was found in an area that is just off of the main road in an area commonly used for camping,” said Conservation Officer Alex Head. “Along with finding the doe deer remains, we also found the remains of two fawns in the same area.”
    Officers believe the incident happened on June 11 or 12, and are hoping to get the help of the public to solve this case.
    People who provide information leading to a conviction on this or other wildlife crimes are eligible for a reward through Citizens Against Poaching, and callers can remain anonymous. People can either contact CAP at 800-632-5999 24 hours a day or call the Fish and Game regional office at 208-324-4359.

Interim city administrator to leave
    Ray Silver’s contract as Ketchum’s interim city administrator will expire June 26. Silver replaced former City Administrator Gary Marks on March 4.
    Silver said he plans to spend the rest of the summer in Chautauqua, N.Y., with his wife, Lynn.
    He said the city has narrowed down 84 applicants for a permanent replacement and is in negotiations with a potential candidate.

Ketchum to allow RV parking
    Ketchum will offer short-term street parking for recreational vehicles this summer in the hope of attracting visitors for lunch or shopping, the City Council has decided.
    Free parking will be available in the center lanes on First Avenue between River and First streets. Estimates are that three to four recreational vehicles and/or campers can be accommodated, per side, depending on their size.
    Signs on Main Street will be erected soon to direct drivers to the area. Parking will be restricted to daytime hours with no overnight parking allowed.
    “We see many RVs drive through Ketchum on their way to campsites north of town,” Mayor Nina Jonas said. “We’re hoping that some of them will stop for a few hours if there is a convenient place to park.”
