WINCHESTER, Idaho (AP) — After two years of severe city water restrictions because of failing wells that forced people to let their lawns go brown and gardens dry up, the city of Winchester hired two well witches.
“The residents really have a lot of faith in well witches,” said City Clerk LeAnn Trautman. “They both found water in the canyon outside of town on privately owned property. But there's no negotiating going on because we don't have any money to do negotiating or anything else.”
