Timberline Schools

Timberline’s final featured four seniors are Rylee Fallwell, Tyra Rebel, Devon Wentland, and Casey Heath.

Our first Senior this week is Rylee Fallwell and her future plans are to attend school at LCSC in the fall. She plans to major in Secondary English teaching.

After LCSC she plans to obtain a Master’s degree in Special Education at the University of Idaho.

When asked what Rylee’s favorite part of being a Timberline Spartan was, “Coming from a small school, some may say it’s a bad thing, but being a Spartan means every individual that attends our school has a sense of belonging, having support, and lifelong friendships. Being a Spartan has shaped me into the person I am today.”

Her best advice for the younger generation is to be yourself, know your worth, know that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Be the person you want to be. Rylee would like people to remember her as someone anyone could talk too and that she was kind.

Timberline’s second spotlight senior this week is Tyra Rebel.

Tyra’s future plans are to work as a CNA. Her favorite part of being a Timberline Spartan was that Timberline School helps you work towards your goals and achieving your goals. Her best advice for the younger generation is to keep your priorities straight. Tyra would like people to remember her big eyelashes.

The third spotlight senior is Devon Wentland.

Devon’s future plans are to join the United States Military and operate and maintain patriot missiles while pursuing a career as an electrical journeyman.

Devon’s favorite part of being a Timberline Spartan was, “the pride that I feel when I tell people what school I went to. Also, the support from the community is another huge part of what I love about Timberline.”

His best advice for the younger generation is to enjoy your time because it does go quick. Another thing is to do your work, it’s not that hard.

He would like people to remember him as one of the many guys that brought the old Timberline to winning.

Our fourth and final spotlight senior is Casey Heath. We did not have a questionnaire for Casey with his future plans and advice. Brandy, herself, would like to add how she will remember Casey.

“I only got to know Casey a short time as I was employed just this year, and after the school year already started. While working at the School I got to spend a little time around Casey. As a senior he assisted with our elementary recesses. He was always cheerful and willing to help watch the elementary students, especially during the winter months when the kids enjoyed playing on the snow hills. Helpful, cheerful, willing to help, this is how I will Remember Casey at Timberline Schools. Best of luck in the future Casey.”

Congratulations to this week’s final four seniors and best of luck to each of you and your future plans after graduation. Congratulations to ALL of Timberline’s Class of 2021 Seniors. Don’t forget they will be graduating this Friday, June 11.

The Timberline Alumni Foundation is pleased to be able to award six seniors a $350 Scholarship during the Scholarship Awards Ceremony.

Carson Sellers and Chase Hunter are the recipients of the Lineberry/Cochrell Memorial Scholarship. Congratulations to both of these young men.

Pierce News

The Pierce Library will be having Summer Reading during the entire month of July. The theme this year is “Tails and Tales”. Every Wednesday at 11 a.m. they will be having stories, crafts, games and prizes. Summer reading is for ages K-6 grade. Younger children are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult that stays with them.

Attending a summer reading program benefits children with encouragement that reading can become a lifelong habit. Reluctant readers can be drawn in by the activities, and reading over the summer helps children keep their skills up. If you have any questions, please call Kim Ward at 208-464-2823. The Summer schedule is…July 7-Wonky Donkey, July 14-Zelmgid-Diane Gerot, July 28-Sea Creatures. Aug. 4- Birds-Andy Berreth, Aug. 11- End of Summer in the Park.

The Historical Pierce Cemetery Friends is extremely pleased to announce that Guy Bonner has excepted the responsibility and caring for the Memorial Flags at the Pierce Cemetery. All other duties, such as fundraising and selling flags will remain the responsibility of Patty, Dan Sr. and Lisa Goodrich. If anybody has any questions, please call Patty or Dan Goodrich at 208-790-7303.

Weippe News

Come enjoy Rocky Railway Vacation Bible School at the Weippe Wesleyan Church from June 14-18. It’s open to children from four years to sixth grade. Start time is 9 a.m. and it runs until noon. After having to cancel last year’s program due to the Covid virus, the church is looking forward to welcoming you to a fun-filled adventure with us. We are also seeking teen and adult volunteers to act as crew leaders. For information call Ronda Rhoads at 208-435-4288.

The Hill Top Senior’s Center in Weippe is serving meals inside as of May 3. Meal days are Mondays and Thursdays at noon. This is open to EVERYONE, not just seniors. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Tressa at 208-827-6925.

The Weippe mobile food pantry provides food to those in need each month on the fourth Tuesday of the month. Because we are a drive through – we begin distribution of the food once it has been offloaded. The truck generally arrives around 9 a.m. and we are distributing food as early as 9:30. We will stay and hand out food until 11 a.m. unless we run out earlier. We are there to reach out and help our friends and neighbor in our local community. The next food distribution will be June 22.

Pierce Community Pool

We want to take this time to update everyone regarding the Pierce Community Pool. With everyone eagerly awaiting the opening of our pool we are going to do our absolute best to keep you all updated in the next few weeks as we move forward.

I will start with the #1 question, are we opening this year? YES, we have every intention of opening and within June. The removal of the entire roof begins tomorrow, Monday, June 7. We have been reassured the completion of the project will be done in a timely manner for our pool to be opened mid to latter June. This should only delay our opening by 1-2 weeks. In order to not take away from any time our pool gets used this summer, we hope to plan on staying open through the month of August, when we normally close the first part of the month.

To make sure such a large project stays on time, please stay clear of the pool area while the workers are there. The Community Center is normally not open during the day until 4 p.m., so we ask that you avoid the parking lot area while the beams are being removed with the crane. If you have an appointment at the clinic during this time, please enter furthest away from the pool area and do not approach the pool area while they are working. We hate for them to have additional distractions as they avoid things like power lines and the pool.

On Fridays, we ask that any who come to the Center do so the same as clinic visits and enter the side furthest away from the pool. Depending on what is taking place, the use of the outside basketball hoop will be limited, if at all while the contractors are working. We want to see our pool open just as much as all of you, if not more.

While the removal of the roof takes place, we will be getting things like signup sheets, the bus, swim lessons, prices, and other questions you all have inquired about addressed. At this time, we don’t have “exacts” for any of these questions but hope to within the next week as you all have vacations to plan for this summer, as do we. Hurray for not being stuck at home this year.

We will also be reaching out to businesses regarding much needed sponsors for our pool. This is not a Pierce pool, this is a community pool, a “6C Pool”, and it needs everyone’s help. There are still obstacles to clear and things to have and operate our pool this summer and every summer and we can’t do this alone. Sponsors will be recognized with a banner along a fence that will replace the existing walls. Anyone wanting to sponsor our pool for the year, please contact Brandy at the Community Center or through Facebook.

We are excited to be opening but are terribly busy preparing for this big change in our pool. For those old enough to remember, not me unfortunately, our pool is simply being brought back to its original state. Any questions or concerns you may have, please direct them to Brandy, or one of our board members, and we will do our best to answer them as soon as possible, as things can change from day to day.

Here’s to an amazing summer and come back of our beloved pool.

Any messages sent to their Facebook page will be answered typically after 4 p.m. when the Center is open. Please do not call the school regarding questions about the Center unless it is an emergency. Brandy will return all calls and questions once she arrives at the Community Center at 4 p.m. Thank you for your understanding.

Community Center is open Monday through Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Fridays from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. and closed on Saturday and Sunday. There is no one on site until 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and Friday is the only day Brandy is there all day. Summer hours will be announced within the next week.

Any events, news, or information you would like to share in the Clearwater Tribune under the Pierce/Weippe news, please be sure to contact Brandy Denison by social media or email at mrsfs24@gmail.com prior to the deadline on Monday to make the following Wednesday paper.
