Kitten rescued from library drop box

November 8, 2011

Anyone who reads the news knows it isn’t always the good tidings that make the headlines. Occasionally though, a story with a sorrowful storyline turns into one with a happy ending. Such is the case with Mushu the kitten.
Last Saturday, the Colville Police Department received a call that a kitten had been put into one of the drop boxes meant for returned items out front of the Colville Public Library.
“Someone was returning a book when they heard meowing coming from the box,” says Colville Police Chief Bob Meshishnek. “Someone had dropped a kitten in there and left it.”

Short Shots...

November 3, 2011

It’s playoff time around the Northeast Washington prep sports scene.
High school football playoffs (Crossover/so-called Play-in games) are the featured events this weekend. Colville will host Omak and their Caribou-Trail League Player of the Year, 5-9, 215-pound running back Dylan Green.
Green, who holds most of the No. 4 seeded Pioneers rushing records, including a school single game mark established earlier this season, was also named to the first team defense as a linebacker.
The burly senior is a load and is the focal point of any opposing defense.
