White Bird News: Legion golf tourney set for Sept. 22

The weather sure is changing, you can feel it in the mornings. Fall is on its way as summer gives up its last few days of warm weather. The fire encampment that was at the rodeo arena has been sent home but the gates to the arena are still locked at this time, so there is still no riding as of now. The committee will let everyone know when you can resume riding down there.

Clearwater Valley News: Flerchinger 3-on-3 memorial tourney will be Oct. 20

Fall sports are off and running, literally. The Clearwater Valley-Kamiah (CVK) cross-country team had a good showing in Deary (Moose Creek) last week, with Melanie Gianopulos winning the girls race, 41 seconds ahead of her closest rival during the 5 kilometer (roughly 3.1 miles) course. Three CVK boys placed in the top 20 led by Kevin Hill in 9th place, Preston Amerman in 16th, followed closely by Jace Sams in 17th place. The boys placed 3rd as a team; unfortunately, the girls don’t have enough runners for a team score. Great job to all the runners. I’ve heard there’s a tough hill in this race. When I saw Melanie warming up before the McCall race she was sporting a sweatshirt with “My sport is your sports punishment.” You’ve got to love running to be willing to put in the miles.
