  • Orofino Chamber resurfaces community mural
    Last week the Orofino Chamber of Commerce completed a long overdue resurfacing job on the community mural located in the alley between Suddenlink Communications and Clearwater Realty. With the help of an Idaho Department of Corrections (ICI-O) work crew and Sergeant Higgins the project was completed in less than two days. “The inmates provided were very talented and they did an absolutely incredible job. They mixed each color individually on the scaffolding as they needed it. They chipped away the bad spots, painted over and then clear coated the entire wall,” says Stephanie Deyo, Chamber Executive Director. To read the rest of this article, please subscribe.

  • Candidate forum draws a modest but interested crowd
    Oct. 16 saw a turnout of about 45 people at the Candidate Forum sponsored by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) and students from the Advanced Government class at Orofino High School. Three candidates for the state legislature were on hand to answer questions of the student panel. But the apparent interest of the audience was focused on local candidates running for seats on the Clearwater County Commission. The audience was allowed to write their specific questions for submission; candidates were presented with the chosen questions with no foreknowledge of what issues they would tackle. The candidate responses were monitored by timekeepers, holding each to a fixed time to answer their questions.

  • Letter to the Editor: Pete Curfman
    Any combination of political parties can, and will, make good, bad and questionable decisions on what is important to “we the people.” The weed department has been devastated by lowering funding and unnecessary control by the commission. Denny has been recognized by the State of Idaho for his knowledge and work to contain noxious weeds. The trio did not seem to think this department was very important. Carole Galloway thinks it is! When a local man reached out to haul “big” rock to save the bike trail and state highway near Kendrick during high water flooding, he was bombarded by our county for driving on four miles of our county roads and was ticketed for doing so. Carole G. gathered information, and helped clear his ticket. She received a letter from Latah County highly thanking her for perseverance. If the “big” rocks had been stopped even for a short time, the bike trail and highway would have washed out at a very big expense for Latah County. It has been said that she likes to work alone? From my past experience I will just say – What? Are the other two really going to listen to her? If elected John Allen will fit right back into their pattern, just like he did before. Vote for Carole Galloway! To read the rest of this article, please subscribe. If you already subscribe, log in and read page 3B.

  • Letter to the Editor: Lori McLean
    Like many others, my vote for John Allen is not dictated by any political party affiliation. Having had the pleasure of working with John on Bald Mountain has given me a good insight into his ability to work with people. As our “leader” he helped us work more effectively as a team. He listened, taught and worked with all of us without tearing down our ideas and abilities. John worked at being more than an instructor which led to his receiving one of the highest awards in the Pacific Northwest Ski Instructors Association.

  • Maniacs laid low by Lumberjacks
    The 2012 regular season ended last Friday for the Maniacs much as it began. In both games -- the opener with McCall and last Friday’s game with St. Maries, the Maniacs led at the half and seemed to be in control, only to have things turn around on them in the later going. After trailing at the half, the St Maries Lumberjacks took advantage of the Maniacs’ mistakes to stretch a narrow, 22 – 16 lead at the end of the third quarter into a 41 – 16 bulldozing of the Maniacs in the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter. Orofino was able to make it a little more respectable when Kyle Sullings scored with  2:35 left in the game, but it still ended at a lopsided  41 – 22 and the Maniacs dropped to 4 – 4 to end the regular season.
