Cottonwood native JR Kaschmitter is shown here with his wife Julie after his completion of the 125th Boston Marathon on Oct. 11, 2021. His time for the 26.21 mile course was 3 hours and 13 minutes. Kaschmitter started running at Prairie High School in the 1600 and 3200 under then coach Gordon Heath. After graduating in 1997, he went to North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene on a cross country scholarship, completing a 2-year program in carpentry. He then went to lineman school through Boise State University, traveled in several states, and ended up in Bozeman, MT, where he met his wife. Later, JR and Julie married and built 2 houses in Colville, WA, where he started running again after a 15 year hiatus. JR is a self-employed general contractor and has 3 children: JD, 11; Lilly, 9 and Tenny, 7. He is the son of John and Chris Kaschmitter of Cottonwood. Photo courtesy of Chris Kaschmitter.

Betty Campbell found this old photo and has no idea who is in it or when or where it was taken. With the man in the I sweater at right she thought it might be a photo of a U of I graduation. Let her know if you know the people in the photo and if there are some of your family she is willing to let you have the photo. The original photo is mounted on heavy cardboard and is about 20 inches wide. Click on the photo for a larger view.
