High Country ramblings

Tobacco Valley hiker Keith Nemeroff and pup Winston descend from the summit of Baldy Mountain, a.k.a. Mt. Mahaney, toward Baldy Lake on July 4. Poorman Mountain in the Ten Lakes area is visible across the U.S. and Canada border to the south, on horizon right.

Marina make-over

Abayance Bay property manager Greg Hanson is a tiny speck on one of the long, 60-slip docks extending out into Lake Koocanusa at the newly remodeled marina. The marina has undergone extensive renovations since new owners began work in February, with more improvements yet to come. Eventually, the marina will harbor three such docks, along with a waterside bistro. Photo by Krista Nemeroff

Unplanned burn

A Forest Service fire crew member hoses down the grass adjacent to the county dump site’s burn pile, which was not scheduled to burn last Thursday afternoon. A dump attendant speculated that a person dumping scrap wood may have flicked a cigarette into the pile, which is only scheduled to be burned twice per year. Responding fire crews quickly contained the fire, protecting adjacent property. Photo by Krista Nemeroff

Brayden John Titchbourne

Brayden John Titchbourne, 18, passed away Saturday, May 25, 2013.

Brayden (Bubba) brought laughter and smiles wherever he and his sarcasm went. He was an animal lover, social butterfly, strong, confident, and a family-oriented young man. Not only was he a wonderful son, but brother, grandson, cousin, nephew and friend. He had a beautiful outlook on life and lived by carpe diem — seize the day. Bubba will be remembered for his witty humor, big heart and ear-to-ear grin.

He is survived by parents Jay and Julie Titchbourne; sisters Kaydi and Hope; grandparents Barb Osler of Eureka, Tom and Inis Baker of Power, Mont., and Ray Titchbourne of Mesa, Ariz., and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who will remember the joy and laughter Brayden brought to their lives.

Funeral services were Monday, June 3, at the Church of God in Eureka. A potluck reception and campfire were planned to follow the graveside service at the Osler family campground on Dickey Lake in Trego, weather permitting.

Arrangements are by Schnackenberg & Nelson Funeral Home in Eureka.
