Hello all and happy holidays from all of us here at the Eagle Police Department.
Thank you to those who came out and supported the festivities at Eagle Country Christmas.  We all had a great time and are looking forward to next year!
I only have a couple things to pass along. There is a new scam going around involving store employees.  When customers have large transactions, the checkers add on a $20 or $40 cash advance in hopes that it goes unnoticed.  They either pocket the cash or give it to another "customer" in line that is actually in on the scam.  If caught, they say it can't be reversed or the machine isn't working correctly or something along those lines.  Another red flag is if you are NOT given a receipt or if they ask you if you want your receipt or not.  Most store policies these days, especially in the big box stores, dictate that the cashier is required to give the customer a receipt since they are usually required for returns.  If you have been victimized by this scam, or have had something similar go on that you caught onto, please let your local police jurisdiction know so we can start looking into it.  We all get busy with our shopping this time of year, but please take the extra couple of seconds to peruse your receipt at the check-stand.
We have challenged ourselves here at the Eagle Police Department to stuff the shelves at the Eagle Foodbank and we need your help!  If you have any non-perishable food you'd like to donate, please let us know.  We will even come to your home or business to pick it up! As you all know, this time of year puts a strain on the shelves at local foodbanks, and we'd like to do our part to help ease that.  If you do not live in the City of Eagle, please still consider donating to your local foodbank as they all have the need and every little bit helps.
Again, Happy Holidays to all and I will talk to you soon.

January Artist Highlight
City Hall - Susan Guho

In my current body of work, I paint dogs in a style that references classical portraiture. My goal is to capture life and personality, attempting to give a voice to a subject that is otherwise silent. I want to capture the intangible of each subject: the personality, life, and inner essence. Dogs are an important subject matter to me because they are an essential part of my life, playing the role of a companion, a friend, and even a family member.

St. Luke's Eagle - Anne Watson Sorensen

My artwork continues to evolve as I am fueled by the possibilities ahead.  As I continue to search, ponder and paint with new eyes, exciting changes develop.  They aren't always beautiful, but lead me to upcoming breakthroughs. I trust His Hand that has led me to embrace unity, shape, movement and magic in painting and in life.  I favor watercolor because it best mirrors and expresses my inner vision of what lies between the realm of reality and possibility.

Is your ranch or farm over 100 years old?  That is no small feat in today’s economy. In the last 100 years, the United States has fought two World Wars, suffered through the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl.  We have seen farming crises in the 1920s and 1980s, and a severe economic downturn, all of which have taken their toll on the family farm. The Eagle Historical Preservation Commission, in conjunction with the Idaho Department of Agriculture and the Idaho State Historical Society, would like to recognize those Eagle farms and ranches that have made an extraordinary contribution to agriculture.   

The Century Farm and Ranch award began in 1990 and since then over 400 farms and ranches statewide have been designated Idaho Century Farms or Ranches by the Idaho Department of Agriculture and the Idaho State Historical Society. The program recognizes a farm or ranch owned and operated in Idaho by the same family for at least 100 years and at least 40 acres of the original parcel of land still maintained as part of the present holding.

The Eagle Historical Preservation Commission is currently working towards finding farms and ranches that fit the criteria.  If you feel your property may fit this standard please contact the Eagle Historical Museum at 208-939-2669 and your information will be passed on to the Preservation Commission. If you would like to fill out an application yourself, you may do so by downloading an application at or calling toll free 1-877-OLD-GEMS. Let us celebrate with you your family’s contribution to agriculture in Eagle!
