Though recent strong winds havenâ€™t been much to brag about in terms of breaking any records, that hasnâ€™t stopped the weather from posing a threat to local homeowners and fire districts.
Smoke from lightning-sparked fires in areas of Central and Eastern Washington shrouded the skies over the Colville Valley last Sunday evening and Monday morning, causing some residents to experience discomfort from smoke inhalation.
â€śIt sucks, the whole being able to breathe thing,â€ť says Thomas Howard, 24. â€śI had to close all the windows in my apartment (Sunday night).â€ť
Indians move up to GNL

Colville High lost some key components off last Novemberâ€™s Class 1A state runner-up team, but the Indians certainly have enough left in the tank to make for an interesting reintroduction into the Class 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians will be led by third year varsity standout Kevin Carpenter. The junior finished eighth and got a spot on the podium at last Novemberâ€™s State 1A meet at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco.
One of strongest-ever CHS teams
If Colville High were slotted where it belonged, back in the Northeast A League, the Indians would certainly be favorites to successfully defend the 1A championship they won last November in Yakima.
That said, the Indians, who return to the Class 2A Great Northern League this fall for a two-season run, will be a force to contend with in their old league. Under longtime coach Missy Bennett, entering her 27th season at the helm, Colville was always a power in the GNL.
