  • "I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down"
    Betsy and Bruce Lang, who reside in a three-story house near Peck, were awakened Tuesday morning by the beeping of the alarm system which went off when a raging windstorm cut out the power to their home and multiple others in the valley. The power went off between 1 and 2 a. m. Tuesday and was still off at the Langs 18 hours later. Lang said when the storm struck the bed started shaking and when he got out of bed he could hardly stand as the house was shaking. To read the rest of this article, subscribe or log in.

  • “State of emergency” declared for Clearwater County
    Clearwater County Commissioners declared a state of emergency, Tuesday after a devastating wind storm hit the Clearwater Valley between one and two a.m. Tuesday morning, knocking out power and downing trees and power lines. One remaining commissioner will sign the request, and it will be sent to the Governor for action. Amazing as it seems, “there were no injuries reported as a result of the storm,” according to Orofino Fire Chief Mike Lee. Though a national weather advisory for high winds had been posted Monday evening, the storm seemed to catch most people by surprise with a severity no one could have anticipated.

  • From this Chair...
    My daughter, Marcie Stanton, treated me Sunday to an early and wonderful Christmas gift. She arranged a girls’ day-out in Spokane with the two of us, her sister and my daughter, Diane Baldwin, Marcie’s daughter Ashley (Stanton) Howland and a friend, Paige Walker to have dinner at the Olive Garden and attend the Trans-Siberian Orchestra performance at the Spokane Coliseum. The four of us made the trip to Spokane in pea-soup fog but this didn’t dampen our spirits. Marcie drove both ways. She’s a trooper! To read the rest of this article, subscribe or log in.

  • One Day at a Time
    Right now I’ve got about as many leaves tracked inside my house as outside. (I try to do my part to clean up the environment.) But Hey! Where are the turkeys? No, not the ones you work with. The two-legged ones with dark greasy looking feathers; the ones with big feet, who leave large…footprints all over your lawn. I usually see them long before this, doing their turkey trot on paths they make down my hill. Coming from the Twin Falls area, I find it peculiar everyone in Orofino has their own hill.

  • Fraser community news
    The wood stove at the Fraser Community Center had a tendency to smoke and for many years that smoke had covered the walls on the inside of the building.

On Thursday, Nov. 11, Donna Brown, Marie Armitage, Mike and Linda Beard, Mark and Karen Fowler, Vern, Blanche and Elizabeth Kinney and Norma Brand spent the day washing walls, cleaning blinds and the kitchen cabinets. What a job that was and what a difference it made! To read the rest of this article, subscribe or log in.
