Clearwater Valley News: Deaths of local young men sadden communities

It was a very sad week in the Clearwater Valley with the tragic deaths of two teenage boys. Spencer Flerchinger, a Kamiah High School student, from a fall at Glacier National Park and Michael Routh of Kooskia in a car accident on Highway 12 on his way back from the hospital after the birth of his daughter.
