Making It Straight: Forest Service to rearrange Crooked River

The H&H Mining Company’s dredging during the late 1930s and early 1940s rearranged Crooked River, leaving a two-mile legacy of “meanders” that the Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests now intend to undo. Public access to the area will be limited for up to six years after the work begins, during which the mine tailings will be moved to make way for 64 acres of wetlands in the floodplains astride more than 10,000 feet of channels slated for reconstruction.

    Orofino nicked Grangeville twice in the final three meetings between the Central Idaho League rivals, but only the last one counted -- and after falling to the Maniacs earlier in the tournament, GHS took the 2A District I-II consolation playoff 47-40 to set up a meeting with District III's third best team, New Plymouth, at 1 p.m. MT in McCall, Saturday, Feb. 28.

    Lapwai tops Prairie in district title game

    Seven lead changes during the first half signaled a close game, but for much of the contest, Lapwai stood firmly in control of the 1AD1 District II boys district title game Friday night at the LCSC Activity Center. During the short stretches when the Pirates' shots were falling, Prairie evened up the game -- but a bit of treachery in the Pirates' shooting touch combined with timely shooting by the Wildcats allowed Lapwai to sustain scoring runs up to double-digit leads early and late in the game.
