The 2019 state football champion Prairie football team were named the North Idaho boys high school team of the year for Class 1A-3A by the North Idaho Athletic Hall of Fame (NIAHOF) Saturday. They actually shared the honor with the 1A-D2 undefeated state basketball champions from Lakeside High School in Plummer. Also honored by the NIAHOF was Cole Martin (pictured below) who was named as the Class 1A-3A football player of the year. He beat out, among others, teammate Derik Shears. Also nominated from Prairie was football coach Ryan Hasselstrom for boys high school coach of the year. He lost out to Potlatch baseball coach Jim Shepherd. Click on the photo for a larger view.

Our Lady of Consolation Hospital. From the look of the cars probably early 1950’s. The watermark on the photo shows it was taken by Len Kuther when he owned the photography studio in town. Photo courtesy of Don Kopczynski. Click on the photo for a larger view.

Another vintage photo of Main Street in Cottonwood. It appears to be looking west as that looks like the old Cottonwood Hotel on the left and the old K.C. Hall on the right. Further down the right side where the awnings are is the Simon Bros. Meat Market at the intersection with King Street. Photo courtesy of Don Kopczynski. Click on the photo for a larger view.
