Area high school football teams started practice sessions one week earlier than their volleyball, cross country and soccer brethren. Practice sessions for area high school football teams started August 19. Colville High head coach Randy Cornwellâ€™s Indians have been working the â€śdaily doubleâ€ť routine every other day. Colville (3-7, 1-5 in 2012) will open the 2013 season on Friday, Sept. 6 at home against Freeman of the Northeast A League. In accompanying photos, Cornwell works with some of his linemen during a recent practice session.

Each year, society members will be granted membership based on the degree to which they satisfy the membership criteria.
After a long hiatus, the Kettle Falls Community Chest remodel has finally started. The building had housed both the Food Bank and the Thrift Store; due to lack of room, the Thrift Store had to be closed. â€śYes, we are going to re-open it. It was based on donations only, we never had a fixed price on anything, and weâ€™ve lost $4,000 in revenue per year; that doesnâ€™t seem like a lot, but those are donations. We donâ€™t pay for any of the items that we have, and we donâ€™t demand prices on anythingâ€”at all,â€ť said Director Susan Urhausen.
A little change of pace. That was what Wendy Granville was looking for when she and her family moved from Anacortes to Kettle Falls last year. But when it came to finding a job, Granville returned to what she knows---antiques. She recently opened A Kick in the Attic Antiques, located at 235 E. 3rd Kettle Falls. The store features antiques (of course), vintage items and consignment. Many of the goods Granville brought with her from the antique mall she owned and operated in Anacortes for 17 years named Days Gone By.
Itâ€™s safe to say, this lady knows â€śgreat junkâ€ť when she sees it.
