  • Nicked and dinged Maniacs scratched by Panthers
    The injury plagued Orofino Maniacs did better than many expected when they traveled to meet a veteran Asotin team last Friday night. Even though the final score was a lopsided 43 (Asotin)–28 (Orofino), the Maniacs were in this one for most of the game, trailing by only six points (28 – 22) in the closing minutes of the third quarter. Having key players like starting quarterback/defensive back Seth Melton and big junior lineman Thad Goodrich joining the list of injured didn’t help the Maniacs’ cause.

  • Faith in the Valley: New Life Fellowship
    “New Life Fellowship” has a ring to it. It speaks of newness; it speaks of life, and a life connected with others. New Life Fellowship Church in Pierce is not a new church, but it has something new going on – they just invited Harv Nelson to serve as their Pastor. For the last eight or nine years, the church has been run by dedicated elders. The church is affiliated with Life Links International in Saskatchewan, Canada, and has a local affiliation (apostolic covering) with River City Church in Lewiston.

  • Fraser community news
    According to Claud Judd’s book “Judd’s in Fraser,” the Fraser community was settled in the 1860’s by homesteaders that came after gold was discovered in Pierce. A quote from his book said, “they were land squatters and they settled anywhere they could grow food and raise livestock”. Some took up parcels of the bench land, which was mostly free of timber and water was supplied by springs. The temperature was warmer on the benches so they could grow orchards and gardens and they also raised livestock. To read the rest of this article, subscribe or log in.
