Clearwater Valley News: Navajo Taco Feed set for this Friday night

I spent last Saturday afternoon amidst happy chaos at the youth zone at Kamiah Barbecue Days. I volunteered at the obstacle course, a large brightly colored inflatable feature with two lanes.

It was the first meet of the season for the combined Clearwater Valley- Kamiah High Schools. The team sports a different uniform with C-v-K instead of the usual CV Rams and Kamiah Kubs.

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. My heart goes out to the families and friends of these two young men. An account has been set up at Freedom Northwest Credit Union to help their families. Donations of any amount are welcome.
