Ronnie Chandler and Rachel Kaschmitter were named Homecoming King and Queen at halftime of last Friday's game.

Sometime during the early morning hours last Wednesday, Sept. 24, Arnzen Drug was broken into. The burglars busted through the double pane window above and then busted through the window of the pharmacy. According to Joan Renshaw of the Idaho County Sheriff’s Dept. they were seeking drugs rather than money. Anyone who saw somebody around the store that morning or has any other information is asked to contact the Idaho County Sheriff’s Dept. at 983-1100. You can remain anonymous although there may be a possible reward. 

The Sophomore class float was judged the winner of the Homecoming Float Contest. See the football page for the other 3 class floats.

The "PeeWee Pirates" marched in the Homecoming Parade. In what's become a tradition many Prairie Elementary School students join the Homecoming Parade. Click on the photo for a larger version.

Prairie 6th graders visited with the Idaho County Commissioners to report on MOSS. Back from left are  Jim Rehder, Skip Brandt, and Randy Doman. Front from left are Whitney Sonnen, Ali Hoene and Dally Ratcliff.
Students from 6th grade who attended MOSS (McCall Outdoor Science School) met with the Idaho County Commissioners on September 22.  Students discussed what they learned while at MOSS and asked for help in sending next year’s 6th grade students.  When asked by Chairman Randy Doman if these students really thought next year’s class would like to attend MOSS, the reply was an enthusiastic, “YES”!  Whitney Sonnen, Ali Hoene, and Dally Ratcliff attended the meeting and made the presentation.  These students shared their inquiry project of the Mystery of the Ponderosa Pine.

The above two photos were taken on July 13, 2008. In the first, the 5 generations of Terhaars are: Freda Terhaar, Ralph Terhaar, Curt Terhaar, Beth Schumacher, and Rachael Schumacher. This was the last time Freda was photographed before her death 5 days later. In the second, the 5 generations of Carlsons are Ray Carlson, Dolores Enneking, Julie Schumacher, Adam Schumacher, and Rachael Schumacher. Ray's wife Grace was alive to know about her Great-Great-Granddaughter Rachael's birth. However, she passed away before we could get everyone together for this picture.
