— A Veterans Day program is planned for Friday, Nov. 11, at 9 a.m. in the Prairie Junior Senior High School Gym. All veterans and their families are invited. The FFA will provide a free breakfast for the veterans starting at 7 a.m., on the stage in the gym. A slide show to honor veterans is being prepared. Photos from previous years are available but additional photos are sought. Email photos to Laurie Karel at KAREL@SD242.ORG by November 19th. Some veterans will be recognized with a patriotic quilt made for them by The Prairie Quilters. Those ladies are doing a great job.

The Veterans Day program at Summit Academy will be held on Dec. 1 this year. Conflicting events caused the postponement.

Camas Prairie cattle ranchers are offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who shot and wounded a cow and killed a bull on the Tram Road/Kooskia Winona grade on Friday, Oct. 28. The cow, owned by Neil Wassmuth, had to be put down because she had a broken leg. The bull was owned by Steve Sonnen and Jim Wemhoff. Contact the Idaho County Sheriff’s Department with any information. Anyone traveling that road Friday afternoon who has information that might be helpful would be appreciated. They would especially like to talk to the kind people who helped pull the pickup out of the ditch. Call 507-1843.
