Region’s plastic recycling capability quietly died

A major part of the region’s recycling capability passed quietly away last month. Locally, the time of departure was marked at about 10:49 a.m. Sept. 4, when the Idaho County Commission approved a motion to discontinue collection of plastic by Lewis Clark Recyclers. The cause was a massive market failure, brought on in part by a trade war and policy changes that have seen China stop accepting plastic waste from all over the world.

Clearwater Valley News: Carve pumpkins at park this Sunday

Great news for theater lovers! I met up with three members of the Kamiah Characters high school theater group last week at the KHS library. Octavio Spencer and sisters Laura and Kara Dow are excited about a new play they are working on this fall. It is a Star Trek spoof, called “Star Track- the Expedition Menace.” I enjoyed watching two of the Kamiah Characters’ productions last year- “Let’s Hang Him and Read the Will” and “How the West Was Won- Black Hat Optional.” They are fun and light plays that allow the students to try on new personalities and provide a creative outlet. I will keep you posted when performance dates are scheduled. You can bet I will be there!

Cottonwood News: Hasselstrom named ‘Coach of the Year’

It got down to 22 degrees a few nights ago at our place, so that pretty well takes care of most of the plants, except for the fall blooming purple asters. They are blooming in all their glory now. It’s nice to have some flowers that bloom late when everything else is finished blooming.

The Summit Academy board of directors announced the new name for the school during their annual “Mystery Night” fund-raising event, which was held Saturday, Oct. 13. Summit Academy will soon begin the process of changing the name of the school to Saint John Bosco Academy. Two years ago, Bishop Peter Christensen suggested changing the name after the school’s provisional affiliation with the Diocese of Boise.
