    It was fun and busy weekend with the Kubs Friday night victory over the Clearwater Valley Rams, the Clearwater County Fair & Lumberjack Days and Pendleton Roundup. Thank goodness the weather was nice for all the events.

     Congratulations Kamiah Kubs for your Homecoming Victory! It was so exciting to have the Kamiah bleachers overflowing with Kub supporters! You Rock KUBS!

     The Nez Perce Tribe Fall General Council will be this week, Sept. 24–27 at the Wa-a’yas building. I hope this will be a very productive meeting and that we don’t re-hash old problems and issues; we need to move forward with joyful hearts.

     The Chief Lookingglass Pow-wow has been rescheduled to Oct. 9-11, 2015 at the Wa-a’yas building here in Kamiah. The pow-wow was postponed due to the firestorm that swept through are area in August. Families that plan to have special ceremonies during the Chief Lookingglass Pow-wow should contact Thelma Oberly or Nancy Wheeler.  The Chief Lookingglass Pow-wow committee will have a fundraiser dinner Sept. 24 at 5 p.m. at the Wa-a’yas kitchen, following the General Council meeting.

     Nimiipuu Health will host Patient Appreciation at the Kamiah NMPH Front parking lot on Sept. 24 during the Nez Perce Tribe General Council.  There will be patient information, free hot dogs, fruit, vegetables and water. September is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, for more information contact Kamiah NMPH.

     Josephine Keefe will be teaching classes this fall as an adjunct professor in the Drama Department at Spokane Falls Community College. Josephine’s earliest stage roles were at Kamiah Middle School in Missoula Children’s Theater productions, and continued at Gonzaga Prep, as an undergraduate student at DePaul University in Chicago, and in the Theater, Film and Television School at UCLA where she received a master’s degree with honors. Josephine’s two children, Patrick and Nora, are her biggest fans. Josephine is the daughter of Tom Keefe and JoAnn Kauffman.

     Birthday blessings to sister Julia Davis Wheeler; Alethia McKinney; Donna Konen; Mark Broncheau and to my dear buddy, co-worker Rhonda Blegan; whom I share a special bond!
