  • Fiesty little girl from Kansas
    “Independent and headstrong” is how she describes herself as a child. “The only times I ever got spanked were when I sassed my mom,” said Cloann Wilkins-McNall, a little sprout who grew up on the Kansas/Colorado border. “Sometimes, with mom, I knew it was something I had to say even though I knew I was going to get paddled,” she confessed.  Cloann was the middle child, growing up between two brothers. She maintains that living with her older brother Bryce, and always trying to compete with him, was good life experience. “He liked to challenge me with words and situations. He wanted to see if I could outsmart him, which I could never do, because he was very intelligent,” she said. To read the rest of this article, please subscribe.

  • Possible ATV fee increase
    Clearwater County Sheriff Chris Goetz provided a report from the department at the Nov. 26 Clearwater County Board of Commissioners meeting. Lifeflight landed at the C-PTPA camp near Headquarters to pick up an individual who was hit by a log deck. There have been a lot of hunting issues. The issues include spot lighting, poaching and trespassing. Mr. Goetz reported there is possible legislation and the ATV registration fee may increase from $12 to $13. The additional $1 added to the fee will go to the county that is designated to be used for programs benefiting ATV use. Next week Mr. Goetz will do a presentation at the new sheriff school on recreational programs. To read the rest of this article, please subscribe. If you already subscribe, log in and read page 4B.

  • Letter to the Editor: D. Craig Anderson and Greta Anderson-DeSola
    This letter is to notify Clearwater County residents that the children of Cliff Anderson were shocked and angered to learn that the campaign of Carole Galloway used his picture and quotes (most likely out of context) in her ads. We consider using these from a person who passed away April 10, 2011 as very “shoddy” campaign practices. We are also certain that Cliff would have been angered and disappointed as well! No one will be able to verify who he would have voted for. However, as a lifelong Democrat, it is highly unlikely that he would have supported a Republican even if he was disappointed in a Democratic candidate. He probably would have left that one blank.

    Pete Kingen reported that he and his friend Peggy Steadman and daughter, Julie Woods traveled to Columbus, OH, to visit Pete’s daughter, DeAnn Sanders and her family. They left Fraser on Oct. 19, and returned three weeks later. By taking a road trip they were able to tour Yellowstone Park, the Tetons, Mount Rushmore and the Badlands, and visited Amish communities in Ohio and Michigan. They watched wolves chase coyotes in the Badlands and Pete was impressed with the size of the buffalos in Yellowstone. While in Ohio they took time to visit Pete’s grandson, colter, who lives at a home for autistic children. They had time to shop at the big stores for Christmas presents. This is the first road trip for Peggy, ask her about it the next time you see her. On Thanksgiving, Pete and Peggy invited Julie Woods, Peggy’s daughter, Rachel Steadman, and Gene Berger to their home for a big dinner with all the trimmings. Pete is waiting to go back to work for Coonts Logging. He is responsible for keeping the roads open for the loggers; the lack of snow has put the job on hold.
