So it has gone this season for the Columbia-Inchelium football team.
The Timberwolves (1-2, 2-4) couldnât take advantage of a once powerhouse Cusick team (3-1, 4-2) that because of graduation and some injuries to key players this season, is a shell of its former self. Cusick did just enough offensively to pull out a 36-28 win at Hunters last Friday afternoon in a key Northeast 1B North game.
âWe had our opportunities,â conceded C-I coach Chuck Wyborney. âThe table was set for us to knock them off. But we made too many mistakes.â
After three years of funding from the Colville Confederated Tribes (CCT), the Colville Fish Hatchery could be closing once and for all, says Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Regional Fish Program Manager John Whalen.
The facility was slated for closure under 2009 state budget cuts.
The Colville Hatchery annually provides about 409,000 trout and Kokanee salmon fry to support recreational fishing in lakes in Ferry, Stevens and Pend Oreille counties.
In a 5 to 2 vote, the Chewelah City Council approved opening city streets to off-road vehicle (ORV) use in a move they hope will help boost tourism and improve recreation opportunities in the community. Chewelah Mayor Clancy Bauman said the city is hoping to increase its appeal to recreationists who use all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles, four-wheel drive vehicles and dune buggies. Snowmobiles are not included in the ORV ordinance. âWe are hoping to draw more recreationists to our town that can ride around and stop in at our restaurants and gas stations,â Bauman said.
