EXCHANGE SNOWBOARDING-GRAND TARGHEE
IDAHO FALLS, Idaho — This year’s ski season will mark the 30th anniversary of snowboarding at Grand Targhee Resort as well as the resort’s 50th anniversary. While snowboarders abound on the slopes today, it wasn’t always that way, the Post Register reports. In the 1970s and early ’80s — the early days of the sport — snowboarders were banned from using ski lifts, both at Grand Targhee Resort and many other resorts in the region.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT:
WASHINGTON — For congressional Republicans, this month’s elections ushered in the year of the woman — literally. West Virginia’s Carol Miller will be the only Republican woman entering the 435-member House as a newcomer in January. She’ll join what may be the chamber’s smallest group of female GOP lawmakers since the early 1990s — as few as 13 of at least 199 Republicans. Democrats will have at least 89. Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, will be No. 3 House GOP leader next year, that chamber’s highest-ranking Republican woman ever. By Alan Fram.
