Mountain biking on Boundary County's west side
Long Canyon Trail (Forest Service Trail #16),

and known as one of Idaho's more popular
mountain biking trails, is now prohibited with
recent changes announced in the management of
the west side's Long Canyon area.

This upcoming school year
will be full of change for many of the schools

change will be happening at Valley View
Elementary School, as students and staff welcome
their new principal.
Girls State inspires student leaders:
Three young women from Boundary County recently
helped organize and operate the government of
Idaho Girls State. How do they work long,
late hours, study how government works, debate
legislation, run for office, and still have fun?
