The House of Music on Colvilleâ€™s Main Street has survived and thrived for over 30 years, and thatâ€™s no small feat for any small town business in this day and age.
â€śOur strength has always been in quality and customer service,â€ť says owner Ryke Dahlen, who bought the business from Gene and Margaret Graham with his father, Ivar Dahlen, in 1978.
The House of Music currently consists of three main departments, including a full-line music store featuring acoustic and electric instruments from Yamaha, Fender and Ibanez (to name a few).
Following a public meeting that announced how Stevens County law enforcement is planning to respond to wolf kills, the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) has offered to help train local deputies on recognizing wolf depredation.
The offer was made after a county plan was vocalized to provide response and investigation of wolf complaints in the county, much like the current system in Wallowa County, Oregon.
