Elk City News: USFS revision workshop touches on several subjects

We attended the Forest Service two-day Forest Plan Revision Public Workshop in Orofino last Wednesday and Thursday and I promised to report on the outcome. Representatives for U.S. Senators Risch and Crapo and U.S. Representative Labrador were in attendance. It was similar to the original Forest Plan Revision process where the USFS presented topics, provided some background, defined a direction for group breakouts/input and then summarized afterwards.

Riggins News: ‘Wellness Summit’ on tap for Jan. 16

My quote for the week was sent to me from my niece Erin: “I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive and everlasting. I wish you enough pain so that the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough friends to get you through the final good-bye. I wish you all enough in the New Year!”

Kamiah News: Live theater returns to Kamiah

The “Kamiah Characters,” comprised of Kamiah High School students, returns to the stage this week performing a comedic play called Let’s Hang Him and Read the Will by Pat Cook. The play, directed by teachers Jody Dow and Taylie Hopkins, includes a large group of 20 students who have practiced intently since October. Dow describes the play as “soap opera, parody, dark comedy, murder mystery.” It sounds like fun to me! Hopkins and Dow teamed up to revive the high school drama program with their first murder mystery last spring. It’s wonderful to see these two fun, enthusiastic teachers offering students a creative outlet and some midwinter entertainment for the rest of us.

The state highway snowplows are on duty and get ahead of the ice on the roads each morning before the school bus.
