Summertime tradition

The Stephens siblings, McKenzie, 7, Dane, 9, and Elizabeth, 6 (left to right), got into an age-old American entrepreneurial tradition by offering fresh-squeezed lemonade along with punch at their stand in front of the family home on 10th Street in Challis recently. They are the children of Crystal and Derek Stephens. This reporter discovered the Stephens’ stand after Elizabeth crashed her bicycle near his house and ran home to her mother, leaving red-headed older sister McKenzie holding two bicycles and wondering how to get both home.
