After we called our daughter to tell her that no one bid against us for our home (we live here year round), she told our grandchildren and this was their reaction to the news! These jubilant children are fifth generation Priest Lake lovers at our cabin/home! Our hope is that other grandchildren and great grandchildren will jump for joy as more lessees receive the opportunity to become deeded owners. Come on, State of Idaho, make it happen ASAP!
This summer a working committee has been meeting to try and develop a plan for a memorial garden facility here at Priest Lake. The committee's vision is to "Provide a place of serenity at Priest Lake for reflecting, remembering and honoring loved ones."
There is no cemetery or any other reflection/memorial location here at the lake, and the committee believes the community would welcome such a forest/garden type facility.
We (the committee) need assistance from the community to help move this concept from an idea to a reality.
At this point in time, we need help with two items:
1) what would be an appropriate name for this serenity memorial garden, and,
2) is someone willing to make a charitable donation of property suitable for locating this facility at Priest Lake?
Thank you to all of you for responding to our post regarding improved ATT cell phone service. After several failed attempts to the Cell Tower Office and the Real Estate Office, we were able to reach the office of the ATT President. From there, we were asked to send the request for improved service, along with all of your e-mails, to the ATT Correspondence Department in Tulsa, OK. The person from the President's Office said that we could contact her if we did not hear from the Correspondence Department. The good news is that we have located the current ATT Tower on Cougar Rock (above Cavanaugh Bay) and it seems the easiest fix would be to upgrade the service in that tower from 2G to 4G. We will be in touch once we have any further information.

We were in an accident on Saturday just passed Dickensheet campground. Our beloved boat was totaled and we did not have insurance coverage on it. I was wondering if you could share this craigslist post for us to see if anyone is interested in it for parts, etc? Thank you, Jeni VIEW Craiglist post HERE
" I think we need to come to grips with the impermanence of physical things...including things we love very much...I am in favor of assembling a collection of photographs of the Tyee over the many years, but of letting her bones return to the waters of Priest Lake. Isn't that what so many of us would like to have done with our own ashes? I offer this with love."

They should rescue if possible. I've watched it deteriorate over the past 35 years.
