5:00 PM Book Club in a Box with NEHMA and KUED

NEHMA will host KUED’s "Book Club in a Box" monthly. For November, we'll be reading "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime" by Mark Haddon. KUED Documentary: On the Spectrum Book discussion will be led by Bruce and Shauna Crane, and documentary discussion led by Dana Barraco, KUED Associate Producer

The stories we get from On the Spectrum and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime deal with young people with autism. While this can be a devastating disability for some, a key success factor for those with this diagnosis is often the people who care for them and teach them. In both the documentary and the book, these individuals have people who care for their basic needs. However, in On the Spectrum, the children have parents who understand their disabilities and advocate tirelessly for their well-being. In the novel, Christopher’s mother has deserted the family and while his father does the best he can, Christopher’s best hope is his teacher Siobhan who helps him understand emotions, both his own and others. While there is still no “cure” for autism, there are methods for helping those living with the disability to live full and creative lives. The difference between the people we meet in the documentary and the people in the book highlight some of these key factors. Is excellent care giving socio-economically related or is it a deep commitment to and love of the person with autism?

This box is a collaborative project between KUED and Better Days 2020.

5:30 PM Jardine Juniper Trail Work Parties

Come help us improve the upper meadow segment of Jardine Juniper with a new reroute!

Come out on select Thursday nights through August to reroute Jardine Juniper trail out of the upper, trenched, meadow. We're working with the Logan Ranger District and Cache Trails Alliance to lead and organize a few more workdays to ensure that the new trail is built well, and old trail closed off - resulting in better trails for everyone.

Please consider RSVPing through our facebook post or email trails@cachecounty.org to let us know how many tools to bring for your group. Wear long pants, closed toed shoes, and we recommend long sleeve shirts as well. Bring your own gloves, hats, sunscreen, water and snacks - we'll supply the tools. The worksite is approximately 2 miles up from the TH meeting area, and we'll leave the TH at approximately 5:45 each evening.
