The top 3 Pinewood Derby contestants at Cub Scout Pack 638 of Cottonwood were recently invited by the Grangeville Cub Scouts to compete against their top 3 and Nezperce’s top 3. A Grangeville Cub Scout took first overall but placing second was Cottonwood’s Phillip Spencer, right, with Hunter Chaffee, also of Cottonwood, left, taking third. 

Shown above are those who achieved Perfect Attendance during the third quarter of the 2006-07 school year at Prairie Elementary School. 

In this picture are those achieving “outstanding” attendance for the third quarter, meaning they missed only a day or less of school. 

During the Prairie Elementary School attendance assembly on April 3, Calvin Hinkelman and Abbi Uhlenkott were selected to go to “Lunch with the Principal” for the month of March. They are shown with principal Greg Deiss. 

The monastery park along Keuterville Road recently received a spring-time trim. An Avista crew took down power lines and trimmed branches while logger Jesse Geis (on the ground) and Kevin Geis (in the loader) removed all the old, weakened trees around the park. Monastery forester, Sr. Carol Ann Wassmuth, appreciated the crews' careful work in guiding the falling trees around power poles, statuary and other trees. "It is hard to see the trees go," she said, "but they were becoming a hazard to the power lines, cars and other structures on the property."
