Published nightly, except Sunday, in Orofino, ID

Dear Readers: You have noticed that things have been behind and a bit disconnected with the publication this week. It has been a bit chaotic with follow up doctor appointments, the funeral of a dear friend's husband and the wonderful occasion of the marriage of our son, John and his beautiful bride, Rebecca. Please, have patience with me while I catch up. P.S. I will share some wedding photos when I get a chance to download them. ncb
