February 2, 2012

It’s Groundhog Day and Donald Trump endorses Mitt “I Never Worry About The Poor” any day in the USofA Romney.
I’m so excited…I think it’s time for a nap.
Let me write this…very…slowly…for…you…Punxsutawney Phil has absolutely no credibility—shadow or no shadow. It’s kind of like the Three Stooges (maybe four) who are running for the Republican nomination for President.

Indians down Lakeside,
Riverside back-to-back

Colville High shared the Northeast A League dual meet championship last winter with Lakeside and Riverside. This time around, there is no sharing—the Indians have annexed the NEA championship over Lakeside and Riverside outright.
The Colville Road Warriors, who have seldom been home this winter on what seems like an extended road trip, annexed a league championship last week with a 48-31 win at Lakeside. The Indians, who went through the NEA unscathed this winter, followed that up one night later with a 39-29 dual match win at Riverside.
