Where have all our children gone?

   This week’s Mystery Child has resided in Clearwater County nearly all her life. We received this poem from one of her children to help you guess her identity.

This shy lady

Turned 80

Three years ago!

She didn’t roam

Stayed close to home

Rearing three kidos.

A huge garden she hoed;

Many clothes she sewed

While leading 4-Hers.

Her lemon meringue pies

Took top prizes –

Just ask a Granger.

   Can you guess this week’s Mystery Child?

   Last week’s Mystery Children were Ron and Gary Hanes.

   Ron now writes and enjoys traveling. He resides in Orofino.

   Gary is retired and lives in Boise.

   The first person to call and identify last week’s children was Teri Ploharz-Bolling, followed by Traci Telecky.

   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
