Birthday includes wild leap

Posted: Sunday, September 05, 2004

CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) A woman who has six children, 35 grandchildren, 75 great-grandchildren and 10 great-great-grandchildren jumped from an airplane to celebrate her 93rd birthday.

''Because it's a new adventure,'' explained Luree Kohtz, of Burley.

After seeing a videotape of her great-granddaughter doing the same thing, Kohtz set her mind to skydive in Caldwell. Her age wasn't a concern, she said.

Age hasn't slowed down Kohtz, who celebrated her 91st birthday by riding the automated bucking bronco at the Cassia County Fair.

''She kept on telling the guy to speed it up,'' said John Price, a grandson-in-law. ''She got so mad 'cause he wouldn't do it.''

Kohtz is tightlipped about plans for her next birthday.

''I'll have to wait and see if I have one,'' she said.
