Busy schedule
this week

The Jenkins High baseball team has been scuffling to start the season with a 3-7 record. But head coach Luke Jeanneret hopes solid play during a Spring Break trip to Warden will help give his young team confidence entering the second half of the Northeast A League schedule that gets started this week.
“We played a really good team tough for two games and took one from them,” Jeanneret said of the trip to Warden. “I hope we’ve turned a corner; the kids are right there on the edge. I keep encouraging them and hope they realize how good they are.”

It’s time for folks to step up to the rows.
The Colville Community Garden (CCG) is in dire need of some volunteers to assist with planting preparation and maintenance. Whether it’s weeding, fer¬tilizing (organically, that is), watering, hauling soil, etc., and whether people rent a plot or not, assistance is much desired.
“We would really appreciate the help,” says Mike Kisman, Manager of the garden, “You don’t have to be a gardener yourself. Whether you rent a plot or not, we’re in serious need of people who are wiling to contribute their time.”
