Ephraim Brown, 35, is a conceptual, metal and assemblage artist from the Pacific Northwest. He utilizes mostly recycled materials, found objects and scrap metal for his creations, thus giving a "trash into treasure", or "beauty found within the garbage" quality to his work. The tools he uses range from a dollar-store paint brush to an oxyacetylene torch.

Itâ€™s been just over a decade since the original â€śseedâ€ť of an idea, but the dream of affordable housing for Colvilleâ€™s seniors is a large step closer to reality.

Northport senior wins three more
Northport Highâ€™s one-woman track and field team, Kassie Guglielmino, capped a brilliant high school career with a trio of titles at last weekendâ€™s State 1A/2B/1B track and field championships at Eastern Washington Universityâ€™s Roos Field.
Guglielminoâ€™s accomplishments are mind-boggling. The diminutive senior, headed to Montana Western University where she will major in Equine Studies, has captured 12 state championships in those three years. Thatâ€™s three a year for the math challenged.
two more medals
Colville High senior Joellee Buckner, in her first season throwing the javelin, proved to be a quick learner last week at the State 2A Track and Field Championships at Mt. Tahoma High School (Tacoma).
Buckner, headed to Western Washington University to play volleyball, won the State 2A javelin by exceeding her previous best by six-feet, seven-inches and uncorking a throw of 137-11 during the second day of Star Trackâ€™s XXXI in Tacoma.
Colville High (24-3) has finished another memorable fastpitch softball campaign, winning a school record 23 straight games before losing their opener in the rain-drenched State 2A softball tournament last Friday and Saturday at Carlon Park in Selah and ultimately finishing 2-2.
The Great Northern League and District 7 champion Indians didnâ€™t open the tournament until 6 p.m. last Friday night because of heavy rain in the Yakima valley that drenched softball and baseball fields and sent tournament officials scrambling for Diamond Dry and pumps.

Meet will be in
Tacoma this week
The Great Northern League had little trouble pushing through its athletes at the so-called â€śGlue Inâ€ť sub-regional meet with the Central Washington Athletic Conference (Districts 5-6-7) last Friday at Prosser High School.
A top four finish qualified GNL/CWAC athletes for the State 2A meet May 23-25 at Mt. Tahoma High School in Tacoma.
