A bit of home anywhere

A bit of home anywhere

Some months ago, Eureka-based St. Rita's Amazing Traveling Bookstore made plans for an epic trip to bookstore events in Rock Island, IL, Brooklyn, NY, and Missoula, MT. It would be quite the journey, and owner Rita Collins realized she would need help making this adventure happen.

The Love of Fall!

The Love of Fall!

The fall season is upon us. Children have started back at school. Aspen are turning their lovely yellow. Salmon are running.

As the season shifts, you might consider starting something new. (Maybe you put off that new project until all the summer fun was over.) If so, now might be the time to pick up supplies at Eureka Hardware or, if knitting a special holiday gift is what you have in mind, to stop by Cheryl Pasque's Woolery Mammoth. With the kids in school, you might even sign up for pilates or take a yoga class at the Creative Arts Center. Foster's Fitness now offers cross training if you want to get in shape for this winter's skiing. And if with that first whiff of frost your thoughts turn to hunting, now is a good time to pick up supplies for that as well.

The Lincoln County Fair and so much more!

The Lincoln County Fair and so much more!

This weekend is the Lincoln County Fair. And yes there are other things going on over the weekend in the valley. There is the BullThing at the rodeo grounds on Saturday August 27 starting at 8:00pm. And afterwards there is the Bull Bash at Abayance Bay. Trappers is having music as well. Sunflower Moose is having a fabulous sale you won't want to miss. But really the fair is what should catch your attention in the morning whether its Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Mornings are ideal to walk through the livestock barns and see all the well-groomed 4H animals enjoying breakfast. Or stop by one of the food booths where there aren't long lines that time of day to get a breakfast burrito or biscuits and gravy. In the morning, the weather is cool, the grass still has a bit of dew on it and there are plenty of places to sit with your cup of coffee as you watch the fair unfold.

Heavens Peak Organic Grocery - Community Spotlight

Heavens Peak Organic Grocery

Community Spotlight

Running a business in a small town can be a challenge. Running a successful business can be an even bigger challenge. So when Heavens Peak Organic Grocery opened in 1996, who would have thought it would still be in business and doing a fabulous job serving the Tobacco Valley twenty years later? Heavens Peak first opened in downtown Eureka in the front of a building that used to be a five and dime (for those of you who remember what a five and dime was). The business started off a tad slow, but with good business decisions and a growing customer base interested in wholesome organic foods, it grew and grew. Soon it expanded into other parts of the original building so it could offer a wider selection, including beer and wine. And then, about two a half years ago, Heavens Peak moved north to even a larger space on Highway 93.
