Congratulations to Clearwater Valley High School student Dakota Gorges who was chosen as a student representative for District II on the Idaho High School Activities Association Student Advisory Council (SAC).

The committee serves as a liaison between students, administrators, the IHSAA staff and board of directors.


Here’s a nice note from Jerry Heidtman: “Thank you so much for the wonderful Youth in Focus 2019. What a wonderful way to spotlight young people in the area.

I especially enjoyed the last page since it highlighted my granddaughter Maddie Smith and her friend Seasha.

I live in Columbus, Ohio, and I look forward to receiving the paper each week and searching it for the Smith name.”

Lorie and her Mom

Here’s my mom and me in 1973, at my grandparents’ home in Kellogg, Idaho. I was 5, which means my mom was 38.

Happy Mother’s Day to all those women out there who help raise children whether or not they are “biological” mothers. Cherish those women. I miss my dear mama every single day.
