Great history column in this week's Kuna Melba News

As usual, the history column in the Kuna Melba News offers an interesting look back at what was happening in Kuna and Melba 50 years ago. This week's installment, though, I thought was particularly interesting.
One might notice the name Joe Aman attached to an article about the Kuna High School newspaper winning an award. Joe is the current owner of Owyhee Publishing, which does our printing of the Kuna Melba News.
Another interesting story was about the Rosses, who turned 91 in 1962. I'm not positive, but I believe Ross Elementary School is named after this couple. If you can confirm or refute that, let me know.
Finally, there was an article about Oscar (Bud) Pearson heading off to Pakistan for a canal construction job.
Lots of good stuff in this week's Kuna Melba News.

Yes, Ross Elementary School is named after those Rosses. It's in my forthcoming Arcadia Publishing book on Kuna.

It may have been before you got here, but the Art Ross house was on Linder and one of the oldest houses in town. It was torn down to build apartments; the roads in the complex are named after him. There was talk of turning it into a museum but the word was that making it ADA compliant would be too expensive. A real loss to Kuna's history.
