PRESENTATION GIVEN: 2018 Glenwood High School Girls' State attendee Kinley Troh, left, with Glenwood Women's Club president Carla Dillenburg.

Kinley Troh, a Glenwood High School senior, gave an interesting and informative presentation on her Girls' State experience to a gathering of the Glenwood high school girls and the Glenwood Women's Club ladies last week. Using Powerpoint slides to illustrate her speech, she described how the "state" in which they lived and worked for a week was divided into three counties with towns in each county. The girls experienced government operation at the city, county, and state level. Kinley held various offices, the highest being prosecuting attorney.

The Glenwood Women's Club received permission from the Washington State American Legion Auxiliary to sponsor Kinley at Girls' State this year. She made many friends while in Ellensburg, and now belongs to a group of 2018 Girls' State attendees who continue to stay connected. The group is making plans to get together in the summer of 2019, before they all head off to their various colleges. Kinley made the most of her week at Girls' State and encourages other Glenwood High School girls to consider attending Girls' State if the opportunity arises.

We would like to welcome the Mitchem family to Glenwood. The new residents, Frank, Vicky, and their small daughter, Vivian, moved to Glenwood from Warrenton, Oregon so Frank could begin working for SDS Lumber Company. Frank is a forester for SDS, and his work involves nearly every aspect of managing SDS timber stands. Vicky is a consultant for Norwex, a company whose mission is to help people reduce the use of harmful chemicals in their homes and work places. Her consulting jobs takes her to various meetings and conventions around the U.S. Vivian is enjoying attending preschool this year. Welcome to our community, Mitchem family. We hope you'll enjoy living in our peaceful, beautiful valley.

Glenn and Mary Pierce, along with Ray and Linda Walker of Snowden, attended the Northwest Pro Rodeo Finals in Prineville last weekend. They enjoyed watching Johnathan Monroe, nephew of Debbie and Mike Woodward and Luann Whitmire, (and adopted nephew of the Pierces) demonstrate his great cow mugging skills as he mugged for Mike Thiele, Jim-Jack Davenport, and Jason Minor in the Wild Cow Milking. Jason won Friday night's round and finished second in the average for the NRPA Finals, first place in cow milking for the year, and third place in the all-around standings. Announcer Scott Allen gave a great shout out to Johnathan for his mugging talent that enabled Jason to have such a successful season. Jim-Jack finished in third place in the Friday night go around and well up in the final standings. Mike Thiele, brother of Toni Troh of Glenwood, finished in fifth place Friday night. It was an exciting and enjoyable rodeo.

Here's another reminder that Darryl Lloyd will be offering a free presentation on Mt. Adams and his new book, Ever Wild at the Flying L Ranch on the evening of Saturday, Oct. 13.
