Good Boys, Good Boys,
Whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do when they bring presents for you?
When Kuna Police Officer Gary Miller got a call over the radio on a cold November morning that a teenage girl was hit by an SUV as she walked her little brother to school, he didn’t know then he’d be standing in her home with a Santa hat on his head and holding a bag full of presents a month later.
The girl was OK – a Chevy Blazer hit her hip and ran over her foot, but she avoided a major injury.
It was when Miller was talking to her 5-year-old brother that he found out something else was up — that the family wasn’t going to be able to celebrate Christmas this year.
So Miller — and the rest of the Kuna Police Department — decided they weren’t going to let that happen.
So they got the family a Christmas tree and decorations. They gathered enough food donations so the family could make a Christmas dinner and have enough groceries to last them through the holiday season. They also surprised the girl, her brother, and her mother with clothes, crafts, and toys for Christmas.

Boone Bartlome Update
Boone continues to make progress by leaps and bounds. On Christmas Day he was able to stand assisted for a few moments. (see video posted to KMN’s Facebook page) With about seven hours per day in therapy, he says that he’s “just getting stronger.” He is expecting to be released from Craig Hospital in late February.
2014 is Kuna’s 150th birthday… Let’s light it up!
The City is accepting donations of LED Christmas Lights for Bernie Fisher Park and Downtown.
As Kuna grows, they want to see holiday events and decorating grow also. Join them in creating a magical light display in the main city park as well as loading up their official Christmas tree with twinkling LED lights.
If you have LED light sets or those fun Christmas inflatables you aren’t using or run into one of those “can’t pass it up” sales after Christmas, they would love to accept your donation to the City. You can drop off at City Hall.
