A surprise from the past

July 12, 2013

Sometimes, the past comes back to us in unexpected ways. A little over two months ago, Kettle Falls resident Milles Nelson was refinishing a credenza for his daughter, Debbie, when he discovered a piece of mail hidden away in one of its drawers. However, this was no ordinary piece of mail. It was a piece of V-Mail from one-time Colville resident, Edgar Jarrett, former owner of the town's Napa Auto Parts store, to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Jarrett of Colville.The correspondence is dated Sept. 26, 1944 and sent from France.
