Where have all our children gone?

    This photograph was taken on Lower Fords Creek Rd. in 1965, and features four of five siblings (two girls, three boys) for this week’s Mystery Children. All were OHS graduates. Two remain in Orofino, one now resides in Nampa and two live in Oregon.

   Can you guess this week’s Mystery Children?

   Last week’s Mystery Children were Corrie and Margaret Calland, daughters of Jasper and Florence Calland.

   Corrie retired from the U.S. Forest Service and still bakes the best chocolate chip cookies around. Margaret worked for both the telephone company and at Stoddard Electric for 37 years, and wrote Crumbs from the Mealsite, a column in the Clearwater Tribune about the Orofino Senior Center Mealsite.

   Arlene Hulett was the first caller to identify the Calland sisters, followed by Tommy Thomas, Diane Tuning (Margaret’s niece) and Rose Marie Vanderpool.

   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.
