     Sincere condolences to the families of Maynard Holt. Maynard was laid to rest at Northfork Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Ahsahka, Wednesday, April 15. Prayers of comfort for his beloved children, his brothers, grandchildren, numerous nieces, and nephews. Maynard was always such a friendly man, always willing to give a helping hand, a real mentor for youth as they went out to the working world; his smile will be missed immensely.

     Over 200 women attended the Women’s Wellness Day last Thursday, April 16 at the Clearwater Casino Event Center. Huge thanks to Merrell (Beck) Simpson for being the Master of Ceremonies; the Renegade Drum; our Women Veterans, Tara Taylor and Kim Williams; Prayer Warriors, Dr. Rev. Mary Jane Miles and Alice Spaulding; the Women’s Wellness Committee and Irene Kipp, the goddess of icebreakers for making the Women’s Wellness Day a Himeeq’is (huge) success. The presenters shared very important health/wellness information that many of the women were very pleased to hear. Special acknowledgement to Nez Perce Tribal Officer Marty Antone, Dr. Aaron Demeyere, Julie Keller, Valerie Albert, Karen Wapato, Heidi Henson, Margret McCormack, Karee Picard, and Larry Terherst for providing the valuable information. “E-MAH-KIT’S-Nu-AAH” (Take care of yourself!)
