Shown are the students of the month for March at Prairie Junior/Senior High School. From left they are Daniel Wemhoff and Sierra Latimer, high school students of the month and Allycia Hale, junior high student of the month. Dan is very respectful and gets to work as soon as he comes to class.  He is always on task and finds extra work to do if he is caught up.  Sierra works hard, is very polite and always has a smile on her face.  She came in and helped set up the quilt show for Showcase Night, and then came back in on her own time to help dismantle the whole show.  She is a credit to our school.  School is important to Ally.  She works diligently daily, is conscientious and always willing to help staff and students.  Photo by Ryan Hasselstrom.

Approximately 50 youngsters turned out for Ferdinand's Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 30, put on by the Ferdinand Community.   It was a beautiful morning and every youngster walked away with an abundance of prizes.  Thank you to everyone who donated and helped make this annual event a success.  Shown from top down are the 0-4 age group, the 5-8 age group and the 9-12 age group.

Paul Sonnen, above, a sixth grade student at Prairie Elementary School, was the first place winner of the Art Design Contest sponsored by Idaho County Farm Bureau. He is the son of Melvin and Joyce Sonnen, Cottonwood. Second place went to Paige Lenhart and third place was Cristian Armstrong, students and Clearwater Valley Middle School, Kooskia. The winners received cash prizes. This is the second year that the county has participated in the Contest. We had many entries. There was much contemplation and searching to find the entries that portrayed a clear meaning to the theme “Idaho Agriculture.” We thank every student who participated.

An NICI inmate work crew along with Leroy Perry of Kooskia and Jay Hinterlong of Cottonwood were working Monday on the new recycling station in Cottonwood located across Broadway from the old Cottonwood Elevator office. Perry built the facility at Kooskia and they are using his plans to build this one. The right hand ramp set-up will be for the commodities (cans, plastic, etc.) while the left hand one will be for cardboard. The large bins will be back in on the far side and the ramps get you up to proper height to use the bins. Hinterlong said the station should be up and running by April 20.

Jay Hinterlong in front of the she built by the Prairie High School shop class for the recycling center. This will be used as an office/overflow building and the shredded white paper will also be kept inside. Hinterlong said that Rod Behler moved the shed down from the high school. It is setting on the concrete pad from the old railroad depot. Click on the photo for a larger view.

In this photo you can see the concrete runners to the right of the framework where the bins will set. Click on the photo for a larger view.
