workshop the Piecemakers Too Quilting Club wanted to introduce local children to the fun of

4. Ed Corkill Memorial Trail Railroad and Science Signage:
    K-J Arts Committee Project Chair: Chris Kowrach
This committed project will provide permanent interpretive signs along the 5.3 mile paved
walking/biking trail between and through the cities of Kendrick and Juliaetta, Idaho. This path
follows the Potlatch River presently has no signage. Two types of signage information will be
provided. One group of five signs will commemorate the integral role the railroad played in the
development of this region. Four additional science related signs will relate facts concerning The
Life of Water and how it impacts this region.

The following outlines our publicity plans. Three signs, relating to railroad history, will be installed
and featured during the annual Kendrick Locust Blossom Festival, on May 29, 2004. Local paper
has expressed interest in writing lengthy articles and The Cornerstone, a newsletter of the
Moscow Historical Preservation Commission, has also requested information. Pictures will be
provided throughout this project and the North Central Idaho travel Association is being informed
of the addition of informational signs along the trail for their publications.

This project is attracting new community partners striving to have a voice in making this trail
unique. The Camas Prairie Rail net (the last railroad to own the line) is donating recognizable
tools of their trade. By using their rails, each sign becomes a memorial in two dimensions, what it
is constructed from and the information it provides. The Kendrick Railroad Depot
Restoration Committee and local railroad historians are compiling railroad facts. Kendrick
High School teachers and students are involved as follows: Welding Class will fabricate the
structure to hold each signs information, Science Club will determine the science information is
to be provided on their signs, Art Club will design the information given to them and provide a
common logo to tie all the signs together and the English Department will provide evaluations
throughout the sign making process. The high school students will interact and adhere to
guidelines set by the sign manufacturing company consultants and government entities. This
project provides a hands-on learning opportunity for up to 60 students. We are seeking advice
from Juliaetta’s Trail Beautification Committee and a person working on his Eagle Scout
Badge has discussed providing benches along the trail. The fifty-three member Friends of the
                                                                                                 7
Kendrick-Juliaetta Arts Committee will help with the sign installation. This is indeed an
example of a community working together.

A total of twenty square feet in signage is being budgeted for each of the two groups of signs.
Railroad rails will be concreted into the ground, to form the two vertical posts that hold the sin in
an H design. The signage material selected is one of the most fade resistant materials available
with an expected life of 15 years, and no maintenance is expected to the structure. Pictures are
also being used on the signs.

The benefits to the community are multifold. The entire project as each step is performed is an
educational process which continues to those reading the signs seeking area information.
Utilization of the trial will increase as people use it to partake in the signage information. Each
sign is a permanent artistic memorial to past and present influences, highlighting the similarities
of our two communities.

To launch this project, the first three signs printing expense is being provided by the Kendrick-
Juliaetta Arts Committee. All phases of this project will be completed by May 29, 2004 at which
time the first three will be installed.

                                              For Fun
   In April 2002, Zion and Cameron Emmanuel Lutheran Churches applied for a grant through the
   Evangelical Lutheran Church of American to begin a mentoring program supported by the
   churches of the communities. They were awarded a $3700.00 grant during the summer of that
   same year. Other money was made available from WELCA and individuals.

   Much of the grant money was spent on electrical upgrades at Zion, heat and electricity, safety
   equipment, storage units, school supplies, books, educational games, and other incidentals. A
   copy machine was donated through the SYNOD office by a Spokane business. Donations of books,
   games, carpet (mats), computers, and school supplies have been made to supplement the
   purchased supplies.

   Janice (Galloway) Patterson and Lorie Glenn volunteered as Program Coordinators. Students were
   accepted on a first come basis with recommendation for his/her teacher.

   High school student, junior high students and adults have volunteered to serve as mentors. All
   volunteers and mentors have attended a workshop on boundaries and first aid.

   On November 7, 2002, the Come for Fun program opened its doors to 2 students. Each week the
   numbers increase, and by March a total of 16 students were registered. Students arrive at 3:15
   every Thursday, and remain until a parent arrives at 5:30 pm. Each afternoon is begun with a
   prayer and snacks. Homework and learning skills are priority for 45 minutes to an hour, and then
   the students are given time to interact, play games, read or use the computers. Once a month a
   special activity is planned.

   The Mission of this Christ-centered program will be able to provide elementary with mentoring
   and care to provide an opportunity for junior high and high school students to develop leadership,
   life and career development skills, and to provide opportunities for child-adult relationships.

                             Brief Overview of past years activities:

2003 was a full, sometimes frustrating and sometimes rewarding year at Juliaetta Elementary
School. Our merry-go-rounds were condemned by the state safety inspector, too much fun, and
funds to replace them have been hard to come by. We are writing grant proposals with hopes of
getting some help.

We survived our first full year of State mandated ISAT testing and have a great deal of data to use in
determining the strengths and weaknesses of our curriculum. In order to meet all of the new federal
and state requirements we are faced with making some significant changes. While we know that it

                                                                                                   12
can no longer be business as usual, we are net yet sure what changes will produce the results we
need.

We have invested heavily in staff development with most of it aimed at deciphering just what we are
to do with the ISAT results. Just pouring through the mountain of data to sort the pertinent from
the not so pertinent is a huge undertaking.

We ended the year with the traditional end of year field day and barbeque. Grades K-3 stayed here
at the school and was involved in a variety of enjoyable activities while the fourth grade went to
Centennial Park in Juliaetta for Ropes activities. The fifth and sixth grades were involved in their
traditional trip to the roller skating rink and the seventh grade went swimming at the water park in
Moscow. Everyone returned to the school for a barbeque organized by the PTO.

                         Brief overview of past year’s activities:

At the beginning of the school year the PTO presented honorary awards to Teacher of the Year and
Volunteer of the Year.

Our major focus this year has been to obtain funding/contributions to replace much needed
playground equipment for the Juliaetta Elementary School. As most of you are aware, the State
Safety Inspector deemed some playground equipment unsafe and mandated removal of these items.
This leaves our children with little play equipment. The JES PTO held a fund raiser this Fall with
Krispy Kreme donuts and cleared nearly $450.00. I know that this does not seem like much in the
way of meeting the goal of $15,000, but it was an easy and fun way of obtaining funds. To date we
have $4,001 of our $15,000 goal thanks to unanimous contributors, local patron contributions, a
Potlatch Corporation contribution, small grants, and funds raisers such as Cash Caps for Education
and Krispy Kreme sales.

                                     One Year Plan

   1. IN THE FALL, WITH A GRANT, 36 LARGE TREES WERE ORDERED.THEY WILL BE
      PLANTED THIS SPRING. TWELVE WILL BE PLANTED ALONG THE TRAIL, DOWN BY
      THE LAGOONS AND SEVERAL ALONG THE TRAIL, OUT BY TRAVIS
      PARK AND REPLACEMENT TREES FOR MAIN STREET.

   2. WE ARE HOPING THAT SOME OF THE GRANT MONEY CAN BE USED TO HIRE
      SOMEONE TO WATER THE TREES.

   3. WE ARE ALSO CONTEMPLATING MAKING A MULCH BED, TO HOLD TREES
     THAT CITIZEN'S CAN ADOPT.

   4. PRUNING AND UPKEEP OF EXISTING 'TREES ALSO USES SOME OF THE MONEY.

   5. WE WILL BE PLANNING A FUND RAISER PROJECT SOON TO RAISE SOME
      FUNDS, AND MAY START A "MEMORIAL" TREE PLAN, FOR PEOPLE TO
      HONOR THEIR "LOVED ONES".

                                   2003 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

      IN THE SPRING OF 2003 THE URBAN FORESTRY COMMITTEE OF KENDRICK,
      PURCHASED, WITH A GRANT, SOME 350 SMALL TREES AND SHRUBS;
      DOGWOOD, OAK, LILAC, BLUE SPRUCE, AND WILLOW.

      THESE WERE PLANTED ON THE TRAIL, IN THE CITY PARK ACROSS THE RIVER,
      AND IN THE CORNER BEHIND THE GAZEBO. THE SUMMER WAS A DRY ONE,
      AND THE SURVIVAL RATE WAS NOT GREAT.


                                Juliaetta Urban Forestry Project

       The City of Juliaetta has received a $1,000 US Forest Service Grant for Urban Forestry to put
3 benches and trees along the Ed Corkill Bike Trail.
       At least one of each kind of tree, intending them to have a permanent name tag, making
them a mini-Arboretum.
       The plants will be chosen as much as possible from native varieties that will provide food and
shelter for wildlife along with making the trail more beautiful.
