News roundup, Owen Wilson and local food are in Aug. 27's News from the Web

The big story today — and from the weekend — is that fire that is still raging in the Ketchum area.

And here’s what we have in the Idaho Statesman. As always, we have the latest in fire coverage here.

The Idaho Falls Post Register has a story with this headline “Keeping children from porn can be difficult.”

School is back in session this morning, which means that summer is winding down.

To celebrate all the good stuff the season has brought to us — and to help out with a good cause — plan on attending the BUGS 2007 Harvest Dinner.

BUGS is the Boise Urban Garden School, a summer program for junior high-aged kids that has them tending a garden.

To raise money for the program, BUGS supporters are hosting a fundraising dinner on Sept. 22.

Festivities start at 5:30 p.m. at the BUGS garden on Franklin near Orchard and end with dinner, music and an auction at the home of John and Susan Medlin.

All of the food will be locally grown, much of it from the BUGS garden.

Tickets are $50 per person and seating is limited.

For more info and to hook up with tickets, contact Becky Morgan at balancebusiness2@cableone.net or by calling 890-0782.
