Clearwater Valley News: Valley Singers set Easter cantata dates

Spring is the time for singing, dancing and theater! This week the Clearwater Valley High School is presenting a musical version of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella the Enchanted Edition. The CV theater program has performed spring musicals for the past three years since Mrs. Elizabeth Nuxoll began teaching music at the school. Nuxoll enjoys directing musicals since they are fun and lively. The larger cast sizes in musical theater allow more students to be involved. Twenty-six high school students form the cast and crew. In addition, shop and art teachers and their students constructed and painted the sets. Several parents are helping behind the scenes with costumes and props making this show a community affair.

Pastor's View: The greatest relationship need

Kari and I have been to many marriage conferences and studied many things about relationships. Sometimes it seems like relationships are so complicated! What did she mean? What does he want? Why did they do that? What did I do wrong? What should I do now? We can end up walking on egg shells for awhile. Sometimes we end up crying a lot of tears and slamming a lot of doors. It can be frustrating. Can I get an amen!

Clearwater Valley News: Kamiah looking to raise another $60k for track resurfacing

This past week I stayed up way too late watching the PyeongChang Winter Olympics. Our American athletes, brown, black, white, gay, straight, rich, poor, immigrants or native born have skated, skied, jumped, flown, flipped and spun their hearts out on the world stage. Great to see the grace and style of our athletes and their respect for their teammates and competitors. It’s about so much more than sports and watching them makes me proud to be an American.

Clearwater Valley: Art show, BrewFest liven up week in Kamiah

Last Tuesday night the Muse Media February art opening was the place to be in Kamiah! Lauren Paterson, artist and Muse Media owner, welcomed a diverse group of artists with the theme What Does Equality Mean to You? An interesting mix of people came by to enjoy the varied art pieces and to mingle, snack and meet the artists. Ashlei Ryan was on hand with a display about YWCA’s local programs to support women and to answer questions. Cameron and Amelia provided some fun live music with guitar, drumming and vocals. Maylei Ryan, at age 5 the youngest artist featured in the show, painted a colorful piece almost as tall as she is. The show will be up for the month of February at Muse Media (410 Main Street, Kamiah). Artwork is for sale and 25 percent of the sales price will go to support the YWCA. We had fun at the Febrewary Brewfest in Kamiah on Saturday seeing some old friends and meeting some new ones. This chamber of commerce event featured local and regional craft beers and hard ciders. Lots of good brews, got to sample five, five-ounce drinks. It’s great to see the Chamber recognizing the craft brewing culture that is developing in our area with beer:30 taproom owner Brian Brokop leading the event. Local band the Syndicats entertained in the afternoon until the auction started.
