White Bird News: Make plans for an ATV/ UTV Killgore Adventure

Good news. The hot weather has arrived. Bad news is the fires are still raging all over! No containment on the one up by Pollock, so that means that the fire camp is still at the rodeo arena, closing it to the public until further notice. We thank all the firefighters for all they are doing to help keep us safe! Meetings coming up will be the WBARD one on the 13th at 7 p.m. The chamber will not be having one this month, but will resume in September.

Riggins News: School registration on tap for next week

My quote for the week: “Why we need best friends: Because they laugh at the same stupid things we do. Because they give us honest advice. Because they will be there for us, even if they are thousands of miles away. Because they celebrate with us when we are at our best, but still love us at our worst,” by Lilac and Lavendar…thank you to my best friends.

Lowell / Syringa News: Last Upper Selway raft trip is ‘perfect’

Marty Smith and crew, with Three Rivers Rafting, including ace guides Hunt Paddison, Gary McKinney, Sara Sweeny, Gus, and Colin Hughes, finished their last Upper Selway trip of 2018. Landing at the takeout above Selway Falls they had stories of “the Perfect Trip!” Yes, it’s hot, but the rivers all around us are perfect for rafting, fishing, and fun. No smoke in the area so far, so the month of August begins on a good note. The area upriver has been busy with locals and travelers, and last weekend with a well-attended Kooskia Days, lots of folks showed up in Lowell and Syringa to enjoy their old stomping grounds. Everyone had a good time. So now we enjoy August and all that it brings. As I always say, nobody ran off with a trucker, no cougar attacks, no dead beavers floating down the river, and the huckleberries are ripe! Life is good!

Clearwater Valley News: Wagon Road Days set for weekend

The Silver Dollar Pizzeria and Pub painted their building a sharp looking dark blue green just in time for Stites Days. With the addition of the outdoor seating and the paint job, their whole look has changed. It appears that painting buildings is catching on in downtown Stites, first City Hall, now the Silver Dollar. That’s almost half the business district. I wonder who’s next? Stites Hardware? They even sell paint.
