News Briefs

Zenergy passes benefit firefighters
    To give fellow community members a chance to get out of the smoke, Zenergy is offering $15 day passes to use the club – proceeds will be donated to the firefighters.  This day pass makes people a member for the day, giving them full access to the main workout gym, locker rooms, eucalyptus steam rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzi, and the daily lineup of group fitness classes. 
    Zenergy has installed charcoal filters throughout the club to give people the best possible air to breathe.  Zenergy is also offering discounts in the spa for massages, acupuncture and more.  To check the daily class schedule, visit or call 725-0595 for more information.

Elk hunts affected by fires
    Hunters should be aware that roughly 70 percent of the Smoky Mountain Zone—game management units 43, 44 and 48—is closed by the Forest Service due to several large wildfires burning in the Magic Valley Region.
    The archery A-tag season for elk in the Smoky Mountain Zone begins Aug. 30. Hunters may exchange Smoky Mountain Zone elk tags for another zone at any Idaho Fish and Game office before Aug. 30.
    Other hunts affected by the closure area include a controlled deer hunt in Unit 44 that opens on Sept. 15, and controlled bull elk hunts that open Sept. 25. Several additional hunts open in October. Fish and Game will continue to monitor access restrictions and fire boundaries in those areas as those hunts draw nearer.
    Fish and Game has a number of options for hunters whose hunting access is severely restricted by wildfires or closures, including exchanging controlled hunt tags for general season tags, rain checks for the following year, and in some cases refunds.
    For more information about upcoming hunts, contact the Fish and Game Magic Valley office at (208) 324-4359.

Housing forum is postponed
    Due to the Beaver Creek Fire, the Bipartisan Policy Center Regional Forum scheduled in Sun Valley on Thursday, Aug. 22, is postponed.
    If you made a reservation at the Sun Valley Resort, you may cancel your reservation without a penalty.
    Look for an updated invitation in coming weeks. If you have any questions, contact Alyssa Loy, events coordinator at or (202) 204-2400.
