Deer population is up
    Three consecutive mild winters across most of Idaho are resulting in unusually high numbers of mule deer.
    According to a news release from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, survival rates throughout the state have been higher than average in five of the past six years.
    Biologists say mild winters and good summer conditions also allow bucks to put additional energy into antler growth.
    Some of the highest survival rates are in areas close to the Wood River Valley, including Big Game Units 36A in the East Fork Salmon area, and 36B, west of Challis, as well as Units 37 and 37A, in the Pahsimeroi Valley.
    “Sportsmen should take advantage of this while it’s available—it could all change this winter,” Department Wildlife Manager Daryl Meints said.

Benefit set for Hailey woman
    Friends, family and members of the community are holding a two-day “Fight Like a Girl” benefit for Dawn Bradshaw Adams on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 15-16, in Hailey and Bellevue. Hailey resident Adams, a mother of four and wife of Nathan Adams, is fighting stage 2B breast cancer.
    The benefit includes an 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. “Cut-a-Thon” at Cari’s Hair Care in Hailey on Friday, Aug. 15, with haircuts at $20—all proceeds to go to the Adams family. A barbecue and concert featuring a silent auction and raffle is set for Saturday, Aug. 16, from 2-10 p.m. at Bellevue Memorial Park.
    Dawn, daughter of Fred and Jeannie Bradshaw of Hailey, was born and educated in Blaine County, as was Nate. Their children are Georgia, Olivia, Grace and Will.

    The project was funded by David and Trish Wilson of Wilson Construction.

Valley company goes international
    A British retailer will carry the biking clothes made by Ketchum-based business Club Ride.
