Where have all our children gone?

   This week’s Mystery Children are cousins; both born in Orofino. One drove big trucks for a time, but prefers fast cars. The other worked in Pierce, 20+ years, and occasionally you may see him fishing the Clearwater. Both love being “Grandpas.”

   Can you guess this week’s Mystery Children?

   Last week’s Mystery Child was Nannie (Kelley) Carrico, who will turn 91 in July this year. She has always been a homemaker, and still has time to attend to all of her activities. You may see her anywhere at any time.

   For a gal who never did learn how to drive - she has more wheels than anyone around town!

   Janet Kingen was the first person to call and identify last week’s Mystery Child. Bev Latham also guessed correctly.

   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

   Remember to include childhood clues to share with readers the week the photo is to appear and reveal information for the week to follow, such as what the person does now, where they presently reside, who they are married to, number of children and grandchildren, hobbies, etc.
