Giving peace a chance

September 14, 2011

Colville High School sophomore Chance Musselman secures a pinwheel into the ground last Friday as part of a 9/11 memorial project. Students made pinwheels and formed a peace sign out of them on the school’s lawn as a tribute to those who died 10 years ago in the terrorist attacks. CHS teachers Tracey Delyea, Ty Brown and Vicky Broden organized the project. According to Delyea, the pinwheels will be left up for 10 days, through Sept. 21, which is International World Peace Day.

City of Kettle Falls watching where it walks

September 14, 2011

The Kettle Falls City Council recently accepted a bid to help the city move forward with its efforts to install more sidewalks in and around the municipality as part of a revitalization project.
The $208,781 bid from Bauman Brothers was accepted at the Sept. 6 meeting for the two block sidewalk project that will create sidewalk and storm-water drainage from Juniper to Meyer Street.

Library gets a makeover

September 14, 2011

Colville Public Library staff and volunteers experienced a mad scramble late last month when the task of replacing the sub-flooring was added to the building’s renovation project. While new tile carpet was being installed, workers discovered that the flooring underneath was structurally compromised, which meant that books, computers, shelves, and all furniture had to be moved out so just less than 5,000 feet of flooring could be replaced.
But with determination and lots of helping hands, the library was able to reopen Sept. 6 after being closed to the public since August 20.

Omak overpowers Kettle Falls

September 8, 2011

Maybe it’s time to stop scheduling Omak High for the football season opener (hint to Kettle Falls Athletic Director, Brian Golphenee). Kettle Falls High absorbed a second straight lopsided, season-opening loss to the Pioneers last Friday night, falling 49-15 in Okanogan County. Omak, behind the running of 5-9, 216-pound bowling ball on wheels, Dylan Green, put up 49 points in the first three quarters to overpower the Bulldogs, who were able to move the ball effectively against a larger school with a roster of 20 seniors.

Lakeside rolls over Colville

September 7, 2011

Going into the season, Colville High head coach Randy Cornwell knew there would be nights like this. In one of the worst beatings a CHS football team has absorbed in many years, the decidedly inexperienced Indians dropped a 41-7 decision to visiting Lakeland High last Friday night. For the Indians, who lost some key personnel to graduation on a 2010 team that finished 9-1, the inexperience was evident against a Lakeland team that was playing its second game of the season. The Hawks opened the season with a loss in Coeur d’ Alene to Lake City.

Chewelah cross-country has fresh faces

September 7, 2011

The Jenkins High School (Chewelah) cross-country team has a bunch of fresh faces on the boys and girls teams this season to compliment returning state qualifier Christina Hall.
Head coach Pat Kostecka is still sorting out who is going to be running for his varsity, but he figures the Cougars are definitely ready for the challenge.
“We’re not a very big school, but we have 26 kids out for cross-country which I’m very happy about, and of those 26, we have 17 freshmen,” said coach Kostecka. “So the leadership aspect of having Christina back is huge.”
