Kamiah Fire District seeks input on proposed levy

     The Kamiah Fire District is proposing its very first tax levy in 42 years. Formed in 1974, the district has never asked for additional money operating funds, but the rising costs of everything from turnouts to trucks is prompting the request.

     The district presently operates on an annual budget of $41,489. It hopes to increase that amount permanently to $95,000.

Graves receives awards Print E-mail

Faithful volunteer makes big difference 

     For 25 years Donna Graves has given her time and a smile to area shut ins as a volunteer driver for the Kamiah Meal Site. On Monday, she was the recipient of some well-deserved praise.7-28-16-donna-graves-4770

     “The 20 years I’ve been here the most faithful person besides the personnel who works in the kitchen is Donna,” said Mel Tuttle, meal site manager. “You know how difficult it is to find drivers who take the time to visit with people. Part of our program is we have eyes on the seniors who are shut in four times a week. Over the years Donna has come upon seniors who have needed help. There’s no way to tell how great this has been.”

Mel Tuttle, manager of the senior meal site at Kamiah, presented a gift card and two thank you cards to Donna Graves, center, on behalf of the meal site and Kamiah Senior Center for her 25 years of volunteer service at the meal site. Also pictured is Patricia Baldwin of the meal site. Gina Jorgensen/Progress

     Last week’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland was simply a fantastic experience from the perspective of Idaho County Commissioner Skip Brandt.

     “It was almost surreal,” said Brandt, who was one of 32 Idaho delegates and 32 more alternates to attend the four-day event.

Teens learn work ethic through Corps jobs

     For the fourth consecutive year, 23 young people between the ages of 16 and 18 have summer employment and are gaining valuable natural resource work experience thanks to the Clearwater Basin Youth Conservation Corps (CBYCC) program.7-28-16-clwtr-basin-kooskia

     The CBYCC program builds on the familiar Youth Conservation Corps concepts of exposing youth to outdoor work opportunities. It was initiated in 2013 when the Clearwater Basin Collaborative, Nez Perce-Clearwater National Forests and Idaho Department of Labor partnered to develop a youth program responsive to legislation authorizing the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program (CFLRP).
