Chewelah eases
past Kettle Falls

The keys for the Chewelah Cougars (4-1, 2-0) coming into last Friday afternoon’s game against Kettle Falls (0-5, 0-3) were to take control early, keep mistakes to a minimum and get through the game healthy.
The Cougars accomplished all three goals, dominating the Bulldogs on both sides of the ball on their way to a 36-6 victory.
“We played up,” said head coach Jim Fisk. “You have to play at a high level all the time in our league.
“Overall, we did a good job; we didn’t make any glaring errors.”

Delayed at the bridge: An update on ongoing construction

October 3, 2012

The bridge at Kettle Falls was built in 1929 to eliminate delays, but lately, it has delayed construction deadlines, traffic, truckers, and emergency vehicles.
Work on the bridge was delayed before construction even started in August, according to Bob Hilmes, the project engineer employed by WSDOT (Washington State Department of Transportation).
The bridge needed repairs over two years ago, according to Hilmes. When two gaping holes opened on the bridge over the past winter due to abrasive snowplows, it became apparent that construc¬tion timetables needed to be pushed up.
