Bill Bacon

March 20, 2012

From birth, William “Bill” Vanis Bacon lived the cowboy life. One of nine children, he was born in Oklahoma, July 25, 1925, to Willy Alonza and Atoka (Harris) Bacon, and passed away in Colville on Sunday March 11, 2012. The 1920s and 1930s were hard times in our country and, after ranching in Oklahoma dried up, the kids were loaded into the back of a flatbed truck and they headed West, eventually settling on a ranch in Ellensburg by the mid-1930s.

Northport will be tough again

March 15, 2012

Jeremiah Johnson leads a solid mound corps

It might be difficult for Northport High to replicate last season’s 18-3 record, but since the Mustangs of coach Don Baribault have become accustomed to success on the baseball field over the years, don’t discount anything.
NHS should be strong again, once they can get out of the gym and onto their field—or any field for that matter.

Colville should make another deep softball run

March 15, 2012

Indians should battle Lakeside for NEA flag

Colville High’s high-flying softball program is certainly capable of replicating—and even improving upon—last spring’s fourth place finish at the State 1A Tournament in Spokane.
A break here or there (remember the Connell game?) and the Indians (24-7) could have been playing for a state championship late last May. Colville finished 3-2 at State and was involved in three one-run games.
But that was last year.
