Coming to the aid of the addicted

June 7, 2011

In August of 2008, Scott Batten, sick and emaciated, was homeless on the streets of Spokane. Batten was a veteran, an alcoholic in the last stages, and in need of help.
Batten had abused alcohol since the age of 10; he was addicted to alcohol for over 40 years. If he tried to detox, he would experience severe withdrawals lasting over nine days.

A cupcake against cancer

Fear not, rodeo fans. The Colville Pro-West Rodeo is scheduled for its usual Father's Day weekend in June. Because of trepidation over the recent Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) outbreak in Washington State, the Colville Panorama Rodeo Board met June 2 to decide whether or not to proceed with the annual event.
According to Panorama President Dave Baskins, the rodeo will go ahead as planned.
