Cold has come to Lowell and Syringa, there’s frost on the pumpkins and you don’t have to hang your deer in the cooler, it’s just fine outside hanging from a tree. So is your elk. You can set your milk out on the back porch, but watch out for raccoons, and be sure your bathroom windows are shut before you go to bed!

Clearwater Valley News: Millage is featured photographer

I’ve been watching the progress of the new construction of a log cabin in Stites for the past few months. It’s a nice looking little cabin at the downstream end of town. It’s great to see a new building going up in Stites. I’ve been curious about the fate of the Kooskia Opera House, so I stopped to see Marcia Graves at Graves Nursery and Thrift Store. She and Mike are excited to have sold it to a younger family who are in the process of moving here from out of state. I checked with Umpqua Bank about what they are planning to do with their bank building in Kooskia once they close the bank in January. They plan to sell the building as quickly as possible. Hoping that someone with deep pockets will see a future for this building.

At Syringa, Lorraine Smith is canning quince jelly and marmalade, Becky Jackson is cleaning up after coming home from hunting camp, which is harder than the actual hunting, and River Dance Lodge and Syringa Cafe are going into winter mode until early spring. In Lowell, the Ryan’s at Wilderness Inn have cut back hours to breakfast and lunch, just for a few more weeks, then they open one more night for the Lowell QRU Christmas party.

Clearwater Valley News: It’s T. Hanks month at the Kamiah Library

On Halloween I strolled through downtown Kamiah with a couple of friends to check out the cute costumed kids. Main Street closed to vehicle traffic and the children lined up on the center line for costume judging. Some clever costumes, a woman dressed as a giant M&M candy, with all her kids dressed as mini M&Ms, a ghost buster family, a dragon, Cruella.
