Jim was born on January 14th, 1951 to his parents, James H. Horgdal and Iris Corrienne Mills Horgdal in Centralia, and passed away on June 17, 2013 in Billings, MT. Shortly after his birth, his family moved to Colville, where he spent most of his childhood with his older sister, Shari, and his younger sister, Neila.
He married Jane Thompson, his first wife, in 1968 and she soon gave birth to his first son, Michael Shane. A daughter, Teena Marie, followed.
Later, he and Jane divorced.
Several years ago, Michelle Chingâ€™s college experience wasnâ€™t that different from milÂ¬lions of other young adults across the country---the 2008 Colville graduate was trying to pay her own way by working nights as a cocktail waitress while attending school full-time. She also took occasional work as a lifeguard at a water park on Oahu, studying fashion design during the day at University of Hawaii.
But the long nights began to take their toll on Chingâ€™s studies, and most importantly, her health.
Archers fired arrows and clay pigeons were blasted from the sky during the annual 4-H Shooting Sports Jamboree June 13 at the Republic Gun Club shotgun and rifle ranges. More than 40 youth participated in the round-robin event, developing their marksmanship with shotguns, air rifles and pistols, and bows and arrows.
Three additional stations were added to this yearâ€™s event, featuring safety and hunter education in a â€˜Jeopardyâ€™ game show format, a 4-H hunting lesson, and a Challenge activity to reinforce gun range safety and etiquette.
Eleven teams competed in the annual Wildland Firefighters Scramble Golf Tournament at Dominion Meadows Golf Course earlier this month. This yearâ€™s tournament, which raises funds for the Wildland Firefightersâ€™ Foundation, raised a record $3,800.

The last place team from this yearâ€™s tournament won a free group lesson from DM PGA pro, Andy Hite.
