Dolores Shannon 926-4908

— Get Ready for Kooskia Days Celebration! It begins Aug. 5th and runs through Aug. 6, and it is sure to be the social event of the Kooskia season. Lots of games, food, live auction, parade and dance. Go to the Kooskia Chamber of Commerce Facebook page. The chamber of commerce events Calendar is not updated, yet, still showing last year’s events. I will have more next week about the happenings.

School is out and this is an excellent time to take your children to the local libraries. Learning does not need to stop just because school is out. The library has activities and books for all ages. Reading is not just fundamental it is without question the single most important gift you can give your children. If they can’t read, than all other learning is in jeopardy. More than 80 percent of the prisoners incarcerated are unable to read well enough to fill out a job application. No matter you choose as a profession, you must read or you will be relegated to a low pay no advancement job. Spend at least one day a week at the Library with your children, they should be able to read at or above grade level, and they will have a really good time.
