It is the price of love.” The first Riggins Oktoberfest will be Saturday, Oct. 20, at 100 S Main Street at Rants and Raves Taphouse and Saloon from 3-7 p.m. There will be a live band, a costume contest with prizes, and a barbecue … all family friendly.

Clearwater Valley News: Carve pumpkins at park this Sunday

Great news for theater lovers! I met up with three members of the Kamiah Characters high school theater group last week at the KHS library. Octavio Spencer and sisters Laura and Kara Dow are excited about a new play they are working on this fall. It is a Star Trek spoof, called “Star Track- the Expedition Menace.” I enjoyed watching two of the Kamiah Characters’ productions last year- “Let’s Hang Him and Read the Will” and “How the West Was Won- Black Hat Optional.” They are fun and light plays that allow the students to try on new personalities and provide a creative outlet. I will keep you posted when performance dates are scheduled. You can bet I will be there!

Prop. 2: Coerced charity is not charity

Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus say that the government should pay for the needy, but He holds us accountable to help one another. If charity is coerced, whether by taxes or another way, it is not charity. Charity is a personal free choice, detailed, loving, tender.
