It was another good week for Colville High wrestling.

Newport, Freeman race past Bulldogs

January 16, 2014

Riverside, L-side on tap this week

Kettle Falls (5-6, 0-4) dropped a pair of Northeast A League boy’s basketball games last week at home. Back on Jan. 7 at Kettle Falls Middle School, Newport built an early 22-11 lead and made it stand up for a 70-62 win.
On Friday, the Bulldogs simply had no answers for Freeman (5-5, 3-1) on either side of the ball in a lopsided 77-39 loss.
In the loss to Newport (6-6, 2-3), defense tended to take a holiday, as the Grizzlies put up 22 first quarter points.

Kettle falls to Newport, Freeman

Riverside, L-side up next for KF

It was a rough week for Kettle Falls High (6-5, 1-3) in Northeast A League girl’s basketball.
The Lady Bulldogs fell behind 17-5 after the first quarter back on Jan. 7 against Newport. It didn’t get much better the rest of the way and KFHS dropped a 60-39 decision to the visiting Grizzlies.
Newport, like they have done all winter long, relied on two principal scoring threats—Holly Malsbury (29 points) and Jolie Frederick (16).
The hard-working Malsbury was 12 of 14 from the free throw line. As a team, Newport was 22 of 28 at the charity stripe.

Alan Wilma

January 10, 2014

“Tell my friends I’m not a wimp!” whispered a dying Alan D. Wilma into the phone to one of his friends. Then Al turned in his hospital bed and managed a smile at his wife, Saundra, and their daughter, Genevieve.
Even as Al lay dying at Holy Family Hospital in Spokane, he did not lose his courage or his wry sense of humor. Alan was a most unusual man. He was intuitive, immensely intelligent and imaginative. All who truly knew him enjoyed his wit and ironic sense of humor.

Our Artists: You can’t force creativity

January 6, 2014

One never knows the talent that could be sitting next to them at the coffee shop, or standing in line at the cash register. Brandi Pinkham is one of those unsung creative types. Owner and operator of Beaded Wing, handcrafted jewelry made only from stones, metals, glass and antiques, Pinkham works part-time as a veterinary assistant when she’s not tapping into artistic impulses and creating unique pieces. The Statesman-Examiner caught up with Pinkham to learn a little bit more about her unique individuality.
