Kubs conquer obstacles to win State

     As with all high school sports, the beginning of the season always starts with aspirations of going to state. The team plans ahead with strategies that will improve their chances at that goal. The best laid plans don’t always come to fruition, but any team member will tell you it’s not always about winning, it’s about the journey.

     For the Kamiah Kubs varsity boys track team, this past weekend produced a memorable journey en route to winning the State 1A team title by the slimmest of margins.


Last weekend the Kamiah Kubs boys’ track team brought home the first place trophy in the State competition. There were two girls who also participated in the meet and are pictured here per the boys’ request.

Cloninger recruited to play Seawolf ball

     Well known in this community for her overwhelmingly happy personality and obvious charm, Shelby Cloninger feels like a family member to many local residents. The community has watched her grow from a little kid who seemed to love basketball from the beginning, to a young woman that still solicits a smile from everyone on her return visits to town.

     Soon Shelby’s visits will bring news from a much farther distance as she has recently signed an agreement to play ball for Alaska Anchorage University. The 6’ forward was recruited by AAU Coach Ryan McCarthy to play for the Seawolves. “Alaska is the only program where girls’ basketball is bigger than boys’ basketball,” said McCarthy of AAU.

Orchid awards presented Print E-mail

Schacher, Ruklic honored with Heritage Stewardship Orchid Award

     The Fire Management Program on the Nez

5-26-16-selway-falls-cabin_Perce-Clearwater National Forests and  Cindy Schacher – Central Zone Archaeologist, were recently recognized with the prestigious Heritage Stewardship Orchid Award. On May 21 Cindy and Barry Ruklic, representing fire management, attended the awards ceremony at the Historic Ada County Courthouse in Boise, Idaho.

     The award was specifically for the extra effort they showed in the historic 2015 fire season to protect historic structures. The wrapping of the lookouts and buildings are excellent examples of that effort. Twenty-one historic cabins and lookouts were wrapped in foil to protect them during wildfires.

Progress offers online subscriptions

     The Clearwater Progress is pleased to offer a new choice in reading the local news. We now offer online newspaper subscriptions.

     So if you live in Tahiti or Texas and want to keep up on the news of the Clearwater Valley, it’s only a couple clicks away

     Online subscriptions include access to optimized pdf files of The Clearwater Progress print version, posted on our website www.clearwaterprogress.com that can be enlarged to the size that fits the reader’s eyesight.

     The online version of the paper will be viewable on Thursday morning, just as the print version is provided to local postal boxes on Thursday. In fact, thanks to the marvel of technology, online viewers, depending on when they log in, may be able to read the week’s news before all of the local papers hit mailboxes.

     Subscribers to this service will have full access to our entire website. They will be able to scroll through the paper page by page online, viewing all the news as well as the advertisements. Online subscribers will access our website via a secure password. We will also be archiving our pages so if subscribers miss an article they can always go back and find it.

     Instead of repackaging the paper in some form on the website, which can be difficult for readers to find their way around and tends to be less effective for advertising, we feel it is most beneficial for readers and advertisers to post the digital newspaper pages on our website in sequential order.

     This method gives added value to advertisers because their ad remains right next to the news copy for people to see, instead of being lost in a sea of website tab options.

     Anyone is welcome to subscribe to this service. We recognize that some people prefer to read news on a computer just as some love doing so in their favorite chair in the living room, the kitchen table, or the bathroom.

     In addition to either online and print subscription options, readers may also choose to have both.

     Online subscription rates are $16 for six months and $27 for one year. For more information, click on Online Subscription Plans on the left side of the screen.
