Relay for Life this Friday

June 24, 2015

It’s back with a new twist. This year’s Steven County Relay for Life (RFL) will be Fri¬day, June 26 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. in Yep Kanum (Colville City) Park. Time-honored features of the event like the Survivors’ Lap and Luminary Ceremony will still take place, but the 24-hour time frame that has marked Relay is gone, at least for now.
“There will be food, fun, and a chance to help raise money for research and study into a disease that effects a lot of people,” says long-time RFL volunteer Jerry Pechin.

Homeless in Colville

June 2, 2015

Last winter’s relative heat wave was a blessing for Romlyn Conn, 63, a homeless resident of Colville. Conn is easy to spot: her ducks faithfully waddle alongside her and her well-behaved dog, Harvey. She fondly regards her little family as her “traveling petting zoo.” Conn figures she walks around six miles a day, passing the time until she finds a spot to spend the night. After 33 years with her former roommate, it was a decidedly unfriendly parting that launched Conn on her current path of being homeless.
