White Bird News: White Bird gets new fire truck from McCall

What’s new in town — do you know? We had an exciting Friday evening when the new fire truck rolled through town. This fire engine was graciously donated from the McCall Fire Dept. and is now ours, as Sandy was handed the title to it. Many of the volunteer crew members were present and a lot of questions were asked.

Elk City News: Elk herd faces wolf predators

I took these two photos within a few days of each other. The Elk City elk herd looks great. But the reality is that the introduced predator, the Canada gray wolf (which were never here in the first place), is back as well. There was a large (approximately 50 lbs.) black and gray wolf spotted a half mile from downtown Elk City near (not on) this dead elk on Elk Creek Road. (See photos)

Clearwater Valley News: Presbyterian spaghetti feed set for Friday

On Friday, I’ll be in downtown Kamiah for a spring festival for Earth Day, April 20, 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. It’s a good variety of free activities geared for youth, but open to all ranging from recycling to forestry to yoga, water use, wildlife, culture and art. Hoping for nice weather, but will be mostly under tents if not. It’s a great opportunity to bring a mix of people and activities downtown, for the first outdoor event of the season.
