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 schoolâ€™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.

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 buildingâ€™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.
