Where have all our children gone?

   These two Clearwater County cuties, one born in Orofino and the other in Weippe are cousins, but were more like sisters.

   The little girl on the left attended the one school in Orofino for all 12 years. Her mother was a beautician and her father was a barber.

   The girl on the right grew up in Weippe where her father was a logger and her mother was a General Store employee.

   Can you guess this week’s Mystery Children?

   Last week’s Mystery Child was Kim Stout Seldon.

   Kim graduated from Timberline High School in 1978. She has one daughter and one grandson. She has lived in Orofino for the past twenty years.

   Carmen Rinehart was the first person to call and correctly identify last week’s Mystery Child, followed by Charolette Maki, Maria Troumbley, Bill Jared, Lee McAllister, June Cleveland, Stephanie Fox, Diane Praest, Chet Donley, Susan Gustin, Karen Hope, Barbara Grant, Denise Cole, Carol Anderson, Cookie Squires, and Ruby Lineberry Gebhart.
