Happy birthday America, Friday, July 4! Whether you fill your day with rodeos, parades, picnics, BBQs, hiking, rafting, sleeping, or celebrating and visiting with family and friends, remember we live in a free country because of men and women who have fought for this freedom for us.

Happy Fourth of July to everyone. Have fun with your family and friends, and remember “Freedom isn’t Free.” We have to work at keeping the freedoms we have or they will be taken away. Fr.

Area ‘news’ gets exciting

White Bird News

I didn’t write last week, because there just wasn’t much to report. We did have a good White Bird Days celebration. Families and old friends came into town and got caught up with one another. That’s always the best part of it. There was a good parade and rodeos. Other than that, I didn’t hear about any of the winners of the different events.

Community yard sale is this weekend

Kooskia, Kamiah News

This is a big Saturday here in Kooskia. The community yard sale at the Kooskia Park is sure to be the highlight of the weekend.

Baseball memories

Elk City News

Speaking of Baseball… Sorry that the photo didn’t get in the article last week. I was having server problems and it was late getting in. Here it is. The Buster Mine crew and the town of Elk City were serious baseball players. Dixie had a team as well, complete with uniforms! In fact, the Dixie Community Hall and Chapel has one on display. It would be great to find ones for the other teams! Apparently, the teams would travel, even out to Grangeville. The Buster Mine and Mill sits above Elk City on the hill a little ways past the present day Forest Service. I’ll share a photo of it next week.

American Legion picnic is June 29
