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 doyouremember@meadowcrk.com.

If you would like to stay anonymous, just let us know.

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.

Your Boundary County Historical Society and Museum, 7229 Main, Bonners Ferry, Idaho sponsors this column.

During the winter, the Museum is open Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

To help maintain the buildings, a small entrance fee is requested.

It is $2 per person or $5 per family.

There is no charge for those under 14 years old or for the Boundary County Historical Society members.

Visit the website at www.boundarycountymuseum.org for a list of the latest events.

On Feb. 11., not only will the Gun Show be in town, but also another Spin-In will be taking place at the museum. If you have missed the last two, maybe we will see you at this one.

Stop in and learn more about the art of spinning, knitting, crocheting, weaving or tatting.

The participants would be more than happy to answer your questions and let you give it a try.

Mark your calendars!
