Clearwater Valley News: Harpster program draws large crowd

Happy anniversary to me! It’s been a whole year since I started writing this column. It’s an honor to be a Free Press correspondent in the long tradition of historic icon Frances Zaunmiller-Salmon River and more recent “living legends”- Marie Smith- Lowell/Syringa and Jeannie Fitch- Riggins who have been correspondents for a long time. I’ve had fun going to events and new businesses in my column area- Harpster, Clearwater, Stites, Kooskia and Kamiah. I’ve met some great people along the way and learned some interesting things about the communities.

Outside lights and decorations are also important; some lighted reindeer would be special. Shop ‘til you drop, include everybody, don’t forget the trash man and the bus driver. Make some homemade gifts in your shop or kitchen. Wrap like a pro, red, green, gold and silver! Did you remember to hang the stockings and the Christmas Village? Don’t forget the cat!

White Bird News: Deer gather for snacks at Gortsema home

Well, it’s December, along with the town being decorated for the Christmas holiday, we have had an even bigger problem to contend with. That’s right, no water within the city limits. As of this writing on Sunday, they still didn’t have the problem solved. They have been trucking in bottled water to whoever needs it and a portable water truck was coming in to help fill the storage tanks. Many volunteers have helped from near and far. If you need anything you are to call city hall at 208-839-2294 or Sandy at home at 208-839-2239. Swiftwater RV has opened their showers up to the ones who would like a hot shower – thanks Anna as this is greatly appreciated!

You don’t have to go to the trouble of picking up your remote and pressing a button, let alone actually stand up and press a button on the actual TV, nope those days are over. Life is getting easier, sure glad I’m still alive to see this wonderful invention.
