COTTONWOOD — Haying is in full swing on the prairie and even in the Westlake area. This is about one month earlier than usual. The odd weather this spring is the cause of it. Lots of grandkids around to help with the haying.

Fishing for salmon has been good lately. The Little Salmon River is closed for salmon fishing as of June 21. Chinook salmon seasons continue on the Clearwater River upstream of the Orofino bridge, South Fork Clearwater, Middle Fork Clearwater, Lochsa, Snake and upper Salmon rivers. The South Fork Salmon River opened June 19. For information go to http// or call 855-287-2702.

The high mountain lakes will be available for fishing when the snow melts. This from Luke, my fishing information source.

Vacation Bible School is taking place this week at Emmanuel Baptist Church from 9 a.m. until noon each day. Their theme is “Journey off the Map!” The Tri-parish Vacation Bible School is being held at the CEC building. Their theme is “Train to be Champions for Christ.” I hope all the kids are having a lot of fun with these.

There will be no Mass at Keuterville next weekend, June 28, as Father Paul will be out of town.
