Filter failing at Kamiah water plant; council says 'fix it'

     One of two filters at Kamiah’s new water plant is not performing properly.

     The cause of the problem is not known for certain, but engineers suspect it is a result of the filtering material itself.

     The Kamiah City Council discussed the issue during a regular city council meeting, March 25.

Life Center treasure hunt Print E-mail

Children invited to The Great Treasure Hunt

     Children are encouraged to join in on The Great Treasure Hunt as they celebrate the fact that Jesus was resurrected from the dead. Why? So that we gain what the Bible calls the “pearl of great price”; a treasure that is so valuable that you can’t buy it. There’s not enough money in all the world!

     Jesus came and died so that we could live forever in heaven with Him. There are many treasures hidden in the field. Each one is to remind the finder of the great price Christ paid for them. He gave His life so that we could live.

     The hunt begins Easter Sunday at noon at The Life Center at Kamiah. This event is absolutely free and all children up through 6th grade are welcome to join in the fun! Kids can bring a bag for treasure storage or one will be provided. Parents are encouraged to accompany their small children.

     Also, everyone is welcome to Easter Sunday service at The Life Center at 10:10 a.m. for a message of hope given by Associate Pastor Arby Shown and encouraging worship music led by Johny Schuster. Come be part of an uplifting event that is sure to put a smile on your face.

 
And the winner is... Print E-mail
4-2-15-kiwanis-raffle-winneThe drawing for the Kamiah Kiwanis Club/Cloninger’s $1,000 grocery giveaway raffle was held March 31. A total of 453 tickets were sold and the winner was Emergency Feeding Outreach. Pictured are Kamiah Kiwanis President Bob West and Cloninger’s office manager Rita Goodwin, who drew the winning ticket. The two were thrilled that the groceries were going to a local food bank. “I’m so happy. Look at everyone who is going to benefit from this—the whole community,” said Goodwin. “That is going to all needy families in Kamiah instead of just one. I’m sure glad that we could participate in this worthy cause,” she continued. “We are not sure who purchased the winning ticket since this was an anonymous ticket purchase in the name of the EFO (Emergency Food Outreach), so thank you for that ticket purchase and congratulations to the EFO,” said West.

Fish headed this way Print E-mail

Spring Chinook season approved

     The Fish and Game Commission has approved seasons and rules for the earliest of Idaho’s Chinook salmon fishing.

     The rules are based on a projected spring Chinook run size that is similar to 2014. As of March 28, almost 1,000 Chinook salmon were counted at Bonneville Dam, the first of eight dams salmon pass on their journey to Idaho. While this number is larger than for the same date since 2004, it is a small fraction of the number of spring Chinook salmon expected in Idaho.
