Mom & two sons officiate tourney

Volleyball officiating is a family affair for the Smith clan of Chewelah.
Denise Smith, a very familiar face around Chewelah and one of that community’s most active and involved residents, has been officiating high school volleyball in northeast Washington for 27 years.
At last Saturday’s District 7 2A Tournament at Colville, Smith was joined by two of her sons—Stryker and Blaze. The Smith trio worked the tournament and was on the floor for the championship match-up between Colville and East Valley.

Making her own way

October 31, 2012

Patricia “Pat” Abbott looks out the window of her home on Corbett Creek Road. The mist outside hangs low on the hills that surround the cluster of houses that dot this rural thoroughfare, Deer make the rounds from yard to yard, starting with the weather- worn grass in Abbott’s expansive yard.
“It’s not what I would call your typical coffee clutch neighborhood,” Abbott says. “People will help you if you need help, but for the most part, we’re all pretty independent.”

Don't let leftover crops go to waste!

October 24, 2012

It occasionally happens to almost every farmer and gardener. Sometimes they plant more than they need, or more than they can use. And as the harvest season ebbs toward winter, fields or plots can still be garnished with crops that just haven’t got around to being picked.
But instead of allowing the produce to just wither on the vine, this is where the Northeast Washington Gleaners Club comes in.

Gardening in winter? Ask him how

October 23, 2012

Just because the weather is getting colder, doesn't mean gardening has to be over. That's where Good 2 Gro Hydroponics comes in. Owned and operated by Steve Michaliszyn, the business caters to those with green thumbs or amateur gardening enthusiasts. Growing lights, organic soil, microbes, planting bins---whatever is needed to get vegetation sprouting, it's here.
"So far I think I am getting a huge amount of enthusiasm for the customers that are finding me," says Michaliszyn. "A lot of people are excited not to have to drive 70 miles to Spokane to find what they need."

But Indians face
tough week

It’s Homecoming Week at Colville High School and that means fall sports’ coaches are wondering how their athletes will react to all that pomp, circumstance and distraction.
CHS volleyball coach Missy Bennett, whose Indians are unbeaten in Great Northern League action and haven’t lost a game, much less a match this fall to date, isn’t going on the record to say she has no use for Homecoming. But coaches will worry about focus and not who’s on the Homecoming royalty or who has/hasn’t got a date to the Homecoming dance.

First place in the Northeast A League football race was on the line when the Freeman Scotties (5-2, 3-1) traveled to Snyder Field to take on the Chewelah Cougars (6-1, 4-0) last Friday night. The Cougars’ opportunistic defense intercepted five passes and recovered a fumble to put a stranglehold on the high scoring Freeman offense, blanking the Scotties 21-0.
The Cougars were prepared for a hard-hitting game from beginning to end.
