Where have all our children gone?

   These brothers and sisters were all native to Orofino and three of them were 12 year Maniacs. They graduated with the classes of 1957, ‘58, ‘61, and ‘63. The older two are now gone, the younger boy lives in Idaho Falls, and the younger girl has always lived in Orofino and is in business with her husband. 

   Can you guess this week’s Mystery Children?

   No one recognized the children in last week’s photo. Last week’s Mystery Children were Ralph and Helen Palmer.

   Ralph was in law enforcement most of his life in the Seattle area and has since deceased. Helen, (now Helen Steiner) has retired and still lives in Orofino.

   Keep those photos and clues coming! We can always use more, so please mail photos for future Mystery Child columns to Clearwater Tribune, P.O. Box 71, Orofino, ID, 83544 or deliver your picture in person to our office on 161 Main St., or you may send them via email to

   Please remember to include clues to appear with the child’s photo and information to reveal the following week.
