When Frank Hoyt isn’t at his job as a semi-retired credit manager for the Lewiston Tribune, the 80 year old is likely on a horse — either hunting, packing or as part of the Nez Perce County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse By Mary Tatko

Of Target Publications

Clarkston’s Frank Hoyt has a thousand stories to tell, and there probably are a thousand stories to tell about him, but when it comes to describing the Lewiston Tribune’s 80-yearold credit guru, publisher Nathan Alford can do it in just three words: “Iron cowboy grip.” Alford was a young boy when he sat around the campfire listening to Hoyt tell stories, play the ukulele and sing. Today, Alford is publisher of the newspaper where Hoyt has worked more than 30 years. One thing that hasn’t changed in all that time is Hoyt’s memorable handshake. “My favorite thing about Frank is his grip,” Alford said. “He’s got the grip of a cowboy.”

The Old West When Nathan’s father, semiretired former Tribune publisher A.L. (Butch) Alford Jr., describes Hoyt, it’s as a consummate outdoorsman. “You hear people say ‘That person should have been born in the early days of the West,’ ” Alford said. “Frank fits that in a perfect sense.” A member of the Nez Perce County Mounted Sheriff’s Posse for more than 30 years, Hoyt has — FRANK HOYT been riding horses and handling firearms most of his life. “We were raised on a ranch (near St. Helens, Ore.),” he said. “As soon as you were old enough to lift a gun, you’d start shooting.” He’s ridden hundreds of miles throughout Idaho, Washington and Oregon, including pack trips through the Bob Marshall, Selway-Bitterroot, Gospel Hump and WenahaTucannon wilderness areas with the sheriff’s posse. The posse members make a weeklong pack trip every summer to hone their training and horsemanship skills, Hoyt explained. This year, they’re going to Hoodoo Lake in the Bitterroots. One of his most memorable rides, 140 miles from Lewiston to Walla Walla through the Blue Mountains, was with the

“We were raised on a ranch. As soon as you were old enough to lift a gun, you’d start shooting.”

posse. Another was a 30-day trip through New Zealand during a vacation in 1985. Of all the places he’s ridden, Hoyt said his best memories are from Oregon’s Wallowa Mountains. “My kids and I hunted and packed that,” he said. Hoyt has a son and daughter; another son died of cancer as an adult. Butch Alford has accompanied Hoyt on many outings, including a week in the Wallowas when Nathan was a young boy, a trip they all remember well. “Frank taught me the outdoors those early years in the Wallowas,” Nathan Alford said. Hoyt can outfit a horse with a week’s worth of gear for a trip into the mountains as easily as most people fill the trunk of a car, Butch Alford said. “He can pack a horse as well as anybody in the 1850s.” Looking back on their adventures with Hoyt, both Alfords recalled his vast repertoire of jokes, stories and ukulele songs. He’s an incredible trail rider,

horse packer “and a mediocre bartender,” Butch Alford said, laughing. Hoyt points out he’s not the only skilled rider in his family. He shared this story about his wife, Carrie: “Years ago, we had the horses ready for a pack trip into the high Wallowas when Carrie’s mare started bucking. She lashed the mare on all four quarters with her romel (reins). The mare settled down, and quick. I looked at that and have never sassed that lady since.”

Posse Perfect One of the many photographs on Hoyt’s office wall at the Tribune shows him with Carrie and close friends Wayne and Jeanette Schwenne on a pack trip into the Eagle Cap Wilderness Area in the Wallowas. For years, the excursion was an annual event, first with tents, later with campers. Those are some of his fondest memories, Hoyt said. Though the couples haven’t made the trip lately, Hoyt and Schwenne, also 80, still ride together on their own from time

to time and both volunteer with the posse, of which Schwenne has been a member more than 50 years. “Frank has really been an outstanding sheriff’s posse member,” Jeanette Schwenne said. “He always comes up with these things to help out and do. He’s probably one of the best members the posse’s ever had.” Wayne Schwenne praised Hoyt not just for his riding skills, but for his abilities as an organizer. “He promotes things along that ordinarily we would never get done,” Schwenne said. Community projects have been the highlight of his years with the posse, Hoyt said. One weekend last month, for example, a crew of 40 posse members and other volunteers rebuilt the riding arena east of the Nez Perce County Fairgrounds. One of Hoyt’s favorite posse events is Operation Challenge, an annual riding day for disabled children and adults at the Lewiston Roundup Grounds. The group also participates in parades and rodeos throughout the region. This year, its members will be riding at the Pendleton Roundup for the event’s 100th anniversary.

Frank at his Clarkston home.

(Not Really) Retired Hoyt began working for Tribune Publishing full time in 1978 after spending three years as a consultant traveling from Walla Walla, where he had a credit business. “That’s when I decided to settle down and quit driving,” he said. In the 32 years since, he’s become as close to indispensable as an employee can get. He retired from his credit manager position about 10 years ago, but didn’t stop working for Tribune Publishing. Instead, the company hired him on a contract basis to continue his work part time. “I don’t know if it was because I was doing a good job or they didn’t want to clean this room

out,” Hoyt said, leaning back in his chair and surveying dozens of framed photographs of pack trips, posse members and his weimaraner hunting dog, Spike. Butch Alford would argue it’s the former. “Ever since Frank Hoyt came, we’ve run way below the industry norm on past-due accounts receivable,” he said. Hoyt handles all the advertising accounts for the Tribune and Moscow-Pullman Daily News. “Anyone who gets behind,” Hoyt said. “My job is to keep them fairly current.” Several days a week, he’s in his office at 6:30 a.m., making calls to advertising agencies on the East Coast where business already is under way.

In an economy like the country has experienced the past couple years, Hoyt said he’s thankful for the “good cash flow and low write-off,” he said is the norm at Tribune Publishing. Even so, he’s been especially

busy lately. “You have to make more deals,” he said of tracking down past-due accounts during a recession. “He establishes a relationship with customers,” Butch Alford said. “He makes it possible for them to continue to do business.” It takes a combination of “the iron fist and the velvet glove,” Hoyt said. “We try to help them

if it can be done.” It’s a job he hopes to do for at least a couple more years. “It’s been a wonderful place to work,” he said.

Old Time Religion In March, Hoyt traveled to St. Helens to attend a memorial service for his mother, Mary, who died in December at 102. She lived a good, long life, so the gathering wasn’t an entirely sad occasion, but it got Hoyt thinking. “I probably should spend some time in church,” he said. “But I probably won’t.” Raised an Episcopalian, he Tribune/Steve Hanks finds spirituality elsewhere today.

Golden Times First Monday of the Month

The Rose In memory of Tom Baskin There is a place along the roadside in Lewiston, Idaho. It’s a place where briars and thistles grow very tall, and in the middle of it all there is a single red rose. It can be seen by all who pass by, and they say, “Look at the beautiful red rose and how tall it is. How did it get in the middle of the briars and thistles?” It is unreachable by all those who pass by. They all stand in awe of the most beautiful red rose. — Yvonne Carrie, Lewiston
