Crapo To Honor Magic Valley Sportsman

Senator also visits Health Awareness Booth during fair

Twin Falls â?? Idaho Senator Mike Crapo will honor Magic Valley sportsman George Warrell, III today with the Spirit of Idaho Award by noting Warrellâ??s nationally-recognized conservation efforts. Warrell and Crapo will meet with board members of Idaho Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife in Twin Falls, where Warrell will be honored for efforts including the restoration of wildlife habitat areas which were once part of a local landfill. Crapo noted Warrell has been involved with several projects, including the restoration and creation of areas where ducks, geese, moose and deer are using the area. The efforts mean thousands of acres of new habitat can be open for hunting this fall. Warrell is one of six finalists in a national competition regarding wildlife restoration efforts and will fly to New York next month as a finalist in the competition. He is the chairman of the Mini-Cassia chapter of the Idaho Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife. While in the Magic Valley, Senator Crapo will also visit the Mike Crapo Health Awareness Booth at the Twin Falls County Fair in Filer. The booth offers free or reduced-costs health screenings for prostate cancer and mammograms as well as blood pressure and cholesterol. St. Lukeâ??s Magic Valley Regional Medical Center is partnering in the project.Crapoâ??s Spirit of Idaho Award to George Warrell and family members:Wednesday, August 303:00 p.m.Crapoâ??s Twin Falls District Office 202 Falls Avenue Crapo visits the Twin Falls County Fair Health Awareness Booth:Wednesday, August 30, 2006 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.# # #
