Pocatello’s Himalayan flavor Provides Hundreds of Free Meals to Local Community Today, July 4, 2020

July 4, 2020

Today, as we celebrate the birth of America, we remember that it is truly a melting pot, with people coming from all over the world to live in this great country and pursue their dreams.

Customers began lining up a half hour before the food give-a-way at Himalayan flavor

One fantastic benefit is that Americans are able to enjoy delicious food from all over the world.  One local Pocatello restaurant celebrated today by giving back to the community.  Himalayan flavor, a Nepali & Indian restaurant that has been open for two years now, provided hundreds of free carry out meals today.  From 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., about 400 customers stopped by to pick up a plate with an assortment of some of their favorites:  butter chicken, chicken tikka masala, plain and fried rice, mixed vegetables, and chicken biryani.

Owner Roshan Kumar said that he wanted to do something special for the community, as his business experienced tremendous support during the pandemic.  According to restaurant staff, orders during the lockdown for takeout meals exceeded those typically made for dining-in prior to the shutdown.

Delicious and flavorful entries prepared by Himalayan flavor for the July 4 Free food give-a-way

Himalayan flavor is located at 303 E. Alameda Road in Pocatello, and is currently open for carry out orders only.  However, starting this Monday, after reconfiguring the restaurant and adding new furniture for better cleaning, they plan to start their dining service this coming Monday, July 6.  The buffet will not resume, staff estimates, until August.

You can also find Himalayan flavor at the Portneuf Valley Farmer’s Market every Saturday during the season

President Trump Delivers Rousing Speech Celebrating America’s Independence at Mount Rushmore

Last night, President Donald J. Trump delivered a rousing speech as part of an Independence Day Celebration held at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota.

Held at the site of one of America’s greatest national monuments, Mount Rushmore features the likenesses of the “majestic figures of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln, surrounded by the beauty of the Black Hills of South Dakota.  Fittingly, this monument tells, “the story of the birth, growth, development and preservation” of the United States of America.  “Mount Rushmore brings visitors face to face with the rich heritage we all share.”

It was a fitting backdrop to a speech that highlighted the greatness and blessing to the world that is America.

President Trump did more than extol the virtues of our nation and our people, though.  He vowed to fight against those who would warp our history, and to stand up for our American heritage.

Southeastern Idaho Public Health Warns Public of Possible COVID-19 Exposure At Pocatello Bars

Show Your Support For America’s Truckers! Click on the Image to see all americanbreadwinner apparel!

Customers of Pub New Harmony, 134 Warren Ave., and Hooligans, 122 N. 3rd Ave., in Pocatello, may have been exposed to COVID-19.  An employee of Pub New Harmony, who was also a customer of Hooligans, has been confirmed as having COVID-19.  Southeastern Idaho Public Health is recommending that persons who had been to Pub New Harmony on June 26th, 28th, or 29th or Hooligans on June 26th monitor themselves for any of the following symptoms: fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, headache, or new loss of taste or smell.  Experts believe symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure.

If you experience any of the symptoms listed above, contact your healthcare provider.  The risk of exposure is considered small, but not zero.  “Exposure in a bar is more than casual contact like you would have at a grocery or convenience store.  Because of the nature of the contact, we believe it is important to notify the public,” said Maggie Mann, Southeastern Idaho Public Health (SIPH) District Director.

Pub New Harmony and Hooligans have cooperated fully with the investigation into the situation.  Limiting face to face interaction is still absolutely critical if we are to slow the spread of this virus in our communities.  Increased COVID-19 cases underscore the importance of practicing COVID-19 risk reduction strategies which include:

– Staying home if sick.

– Practicing physical-distancing (maintaining at least 6 feet between individuals).

– Wearing a fabric face covering or mask when in public settings where physical distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

– Covering your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your sleeve.

– Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

– Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.

If you believe you have been exposed to a confirmed case of COVID-19, make sure to self-isolate.  If you need medical attention, please call your healthcare provider in advance of a visit to discuss your symptoms and next steps.  Testing is available by calling 208-234-5875.

SIPH has a call center to field questions from the community and is open Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.  You can reach the hotline at (208) 234-5875.
