Bonners Ferry Fire Chief Pat Warkentin shared with us this interesting item. As you can see, you move the handle and one end expands.
He was wondering if anyone knew what it was or how it was used.
If you have an answer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Last week was a picture of three men at a construction site. It appeared to be up in the 3 Mile area.
They may have been working on the foundation for Walt Worley’s building, as he had a meat market there at one time. However, we are not sure and did not receive any help from our readers.
