Buttermilk Bowl Tourney results:

KAMIAH — There were 43 entrants in into the Buttermilk Bowl Nine-Pin No-Tap bowling tournament held Saturday, May 3, at Tamarack Lanes in Kamiah.

The idea of the “9-pin no-tap” is when you get nine pins down on your first ball it counts as a strike making a higher score easier.

Taking first place in the men’s division was Wendell Davis from Kamiah. second was Brett Kuhn from Lewiston and third to Hal Harris of Kamiah.

For the women - Rose Roberts, Kamiah came in first, second went to Joetta Kiele of Kooskia and third to Colleen Lockart of Grangeville.

This tournament started two years ago to benefit the Kiwanis Cancer Fund and has grown each year to 43 entries this year. Hopefully it will keep growing so each year we have more entries and a larger donation to some needy cause.

Last week there was a child enticing event in Kamiah near the elementary school. This might be a good time to remind you to keep a watchful eye for children heading home on the roadways, and keep a diligent eye open for strangers, or people acting strangely where children are present. If you see someone, get a description, license number, car ID, or anything that might help to catch these people, and contact local law enforcement. It is everyone’s duty to protect the children in our community. If you know or make news, give me a call.
