Where have all our children gone?

   We need Mystery Children again. Sorry, no photos have been submitted recently. Perhaps you can think of a Mystery Child to share with our readers?

   Last week’s Mystery Child was Aretha Chilton.

   Aretha Chilton, 96 years old (on their 100th birthday, centenarians receive a letter from the president; hence the clue about four years). She lives at Brookside Landing. She moved to Orofino in 1935. One of her kids lives in Lewiston, another in Oregon City, and the third is in Post Falls.

   Red Arave was the first to identify last week’s Mystery Child, followed by Don and Cathy Jenni, Marie Vanderpool. Loralee Brown, Gerri Lemmon, Donna Mullikin, Lin Chamberlin, Mrs. Jack Duty, Lois Galloway, Peggy Ball, and Amber Ross.

   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.
