Clearwater Valley News: Take mom to museum for dessert

I spent a fun Friday evening enjoying the last Kamiah Characters theater performance of the year as part of a great crowd of all ages. The play “How the West was Won or Black Hat Optional,” was a spoof on Western melodrama. It seemed a perfect play for the “Characters” since the parts encouraged them to have some fun and be over-the-top in their acting.

White Bird News: Pathfinders ride set for May 9

“And the thunder rolls.” Yes, it did Sunday evening, along with mud slides, rock and flooding during the weekend. I hope everyone is OK, and was out of harm’s way.
