  • Sally Shawley, more than a little horse sense
    “I’ve been a horse nut since I was old enough to know what they were,” says Sally Shawley, a girl who grew up in the leather and tweed set in New England. Growing up 35 miles from New York City, on the New Jersey side, her life was all about riding. She did jumping events, cross-country jumping, and competed in the Canadian Hunter. Sally began her first semester of college in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, taking her horse with her. “I was supposed to teach riding and work in the library for tuition,” she said. She switched schools after reading an advertisement in the New York Times for a concentrated course in dietetics and decided to do that for her career. She entered a school on 52nd Street in New York to complete her nine month course to become a dietician. Social networking isn’t new; they used to do it back then via letters. Sally had a friend who was writing about horses to a cowboy, Robert (Bob) Shawley way out in the west. Bob had been employed by a packing service out of Montana. Sally’s friend thought she ought to write to him also since they both had a love of horses in common. They became pen pals. Sally says she sent “one too many pictures” of herself with her horse, and the tone of his letters began to change. To read the rest of this article, please subscribe.

  • ICI-O inmate indicted in fraud scheme
    A 53-year-old Idaho inmate was doing more behind bars than paying his debt to society according to federal prosecutors.

According to his federal indictment, Brown between 2007 and this February purported to be a claimant of various bankruptcy settlements and other lawsuits.

  • A family of queens in Clearwater County
    This family brings a unique story to Clearwater County; two sisters and one cousin all crowned Queen of Orofino Lumberjack Days. The tradition began with cousin Ronatta (Rales) Norland being crowned in 2005 with her unique baking monologue entitled “Lumberjack Brownies.” Next crowned in the family was older sister, Whitney Rales who performed a monologue entitled “Dorothy the Ungrateful” and was then crowned the 2009 Queen. The recent family member crowned Queen was younger sister, Madison Parks who was the 2012 Queen. She created an original monologue entitled “The Day in a Life of a Logger.” For as long as family members can remember these three girls dreamt of one day becoming Orofino Lumberjack Days Queen and having the privilege to represent Clearwater County. Ronatta inspired her younger cousins to continue dreaming of becoming Queen because of her great experience. Along with dreaming of being Queen and being able to wear a sparkly crown on her head, Whitney loves children and wanted to influence the youth of Clearwater County to follow their dreams.

  • Janet Ward presents "Forgotten Women: Indian Wives of the Fur Traders and Mountain Men" at Weippe Camas Festival May 25
    Janet Ward will present “Forgotten Women: Indian Wives of the Fur Traders and Mountain Men” Saturday, May 25 at 2 p.m. at the Weippe Community Hall. Women were an integral part of the fur trade. Most men had Indian wives who did the camp work and dressed the beaver skins; however, as few men mentioned their Indian wives in journals and reminiscences, these women have been forgotten, their contributions unrecognized. Contrary to the popular image, most trapper-Indian marriages were stable and long lasting. After the fur trade ended, many families stayed together, enduring prejudice. Some established separate communities, while others settled with the wife’s tribe. The Indian women featured in this talk are part of Idaho’s history: Peg-leg Smith’s troubled harem.

  • Fraser news
    We worked in the garden yesterday removing a row of irises and a portion of the raspberry patch and found the ground was already drying out. The irises originally came from Doris Peterson’s garden. When she thinned her plants she generously shared rhizomes with me. The blossoms on these plants have been spectacular and we have really enjoyed them. We moved a variety of the rhizomes to a new bed. This is not the best time to move them, but I hope with tender loving care they will make it. Heather Sutton stopped by on Friday to pick up some of the raspberry, blackberry and youngberry plants and some irises. It’s always fun to share plants with friends. We hope they add a special touch to your garden, Heather. Peggy and Reggie Ball drove to Lewiston on Saturday to have breakfast with her son Randy, his wife Carrie, their daughter Chelsee Hasenoehrl and her husband Jake. They celebrated Randy and Chelsee’s birthdays and did some shopping. To read the rest of this article, please subscribe. If you already subscribe, log in and read page 11A.

  • Happenings on the Hilltop
    The snow is gone, the weather is warming, which is all to the good. However, now we can clearly see all the paper, food containers, cans and other trash along the roads. What a shame to mar the roadsides when we live in such a beautiful place. Maybe keep a bag in the car for trash? Empty in our trash cans at home? There is a recycling program at Timberline Schools. Turn in toward the school, take the bottom road to the bins. There are bins for newspaper, paper, cardboard and aluminum cans. Did you read the article about Bill Rossiter in last week’s edition? Sounds like great fun. He will be performing at the Camas Festival this year. I especially liked the bit “Bill dislikes beets, has all his teeth, and likes old weird songs. When asked his age he claims to be 69.99 plus shipping and handling.” To read the rest of this article, please subscribe. If you already subscribe, log in and read page 11A.
