  • Once a Maniac, always a Maniac
    If you’ve been following the Clearwater Tribune’s historical articles, you will know we are celebrating, proudly our Centennial year. We have been doing so by bringing you stories of the past, people’s memories, where things were in the old days, and what the work was like in the earlier days of the Tribune. Jack Dahl was a part of that history. His father, Julian Dahl, has been mentioned in some of our anniversary tales. Julian and Elsie (Hill) Dahl moved away from Minnesota’s 40° below winters. They went to Cincinnati, OH to work in an airplane factory during the war years in the 40’s. Julian, a printer, later got a job working for the Times News, a Twin Falls paper – a job that brought them out to Idaho. “He worked at the linotype at that paper for a couple of years,” said his son Jack. Then he got recruited to come north to Orofino by Bob Werner.  Jack said his father did not even have a car in those days. Bob Werner drove to Twin Falls and brought back his new foreman.

  • Deyo Reservoir and Recreation Area update
    As the construction period of 2012 ends, we want to report the progress made throughout the summer at Deyo Reservoir. The repairs have been completed on the seepage area that occurred last winter. Those repairs required that the reservoir water level be drawn down to facilitate the repairs. We will hope for lots of moisture this winter and next spring, so the reservoir will fill again, and the reconfigured wetlands will trap and hold water for the use of birds and wildlife. Hundreds of geese, ducks, cranes, turkeys, and other game birds and song birds have already discovered their new home at Deyo. Many trees needed to be replaced that were lost during construction. Thanks to a generous donation of 11 fifteen foot Canadian Cherry trees (chokecherry) from Reggear Tree Farms, we began recovery of the site. To read the rest of this article, please subscribe.

  • Maniacs out but not down
    The Orofino Maniacs brought a lot tougher game than anyone anticipated but they were still unable to take home a win last Friday from the Marsing Huskies. What was expected by many to be a cakewalk for the Western Idaho Division champs turned out to be a fight for their lives and, if not for some questionable officiating, could easily have gone in the Maniacs’ favor. Orofino’s season came to an end though, with the “closer-than-it-sounds” 27 – 16 loss to the Marsing Huskies as Orofino got knocked out of the 2-A Idaho State Tournament. The Maniacs have no reason to hang their heads, though.

  • From this Chair
    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.
