Editor’s note: This is the first installment of Colville physician Dr. Barry Bacon’s travelogue/report from the African continent and his ongoing work there.

Day 1: Sept. 27, 2012

My dear wife Shelley seemed a little cranky to me the past couple of days. I now know that she was missing me already. She doesn’t like being alone at night. I understand that. I don’t like it either. I would rather take her along with me. Next time?

New challenges for CHS

November 28, 2012

Indians move
up to Class 2A

BY CHRIS COWBROUGH
S-E Sports Editor

Replicating last season’s 15-12 record and a Sweet 16 finish in Class 1A will be tough for the Colville High boy’s basketball team. For one thing, the Indians are playing up and are back in the 2A Great Northern League.
The Indians can only dream about being back where they belong—in 1A…at least for the next two seasons.
CHS also lost two-thirds of a rugged front line when seniors Alex Pond (6-5) and J.R. Henry (6-6) graduated. That kind of size and athleticism will be tough to replace.

Colville could surprise in GNL

No seniors on
2012-2013 team

Never count out a Colville High girl’s basketball team.
The Indians, who graduated three All-Northeast A performers last season and move up to the 2A Great Northern League this winter for the two-year WIAA enrollment cycle, should still be formidable.
After all, while there are no seniors on this year’s roster, the 2012-2013 CHS varsity is a group that head coach Ray Clark and his daughter, assistant coach Kajsa Brons, have worked with since they were fourth graders.

Speed in spades

Yes, there is youth—and there is basketball experience.
