John Smith gets the nod as new 7th District Senator

January 9, 2013

Colville-area farmer John Smith, 39, beat out Spokane legislative aide Josh Kerns, 27, for the position of Washington State 7th Legislative District Senator, replacing Republican Bob Morton, who announced his retirement in December.
Smith garnered 13 out of 15 votes from county commissioners of the 7th District, who met last Thursday in Colville to decide who would replace Morton to finish the last two years of his term in the Senate.
A third finalist, political consultant Doug Simpson, withdrew his name for consideration prior to the meeting.

Arden Bridge scheduled for June re-opening

January 9, 2013

The Arden Bridge technically shouldn't be called a bridge, since there is no bridge right now fording the Little Pend Oreille River. The bridge, which traverses the river along the Old Arden Highway south of Colville, hasn’t been reconstructed yet.
The historic span was closed in 2011 after sustaining an undermining of its foundation from spring runoff.
Jason Hart Assistant County Engineer for Stevens County, said that work on the bridge is has been idled for the winter. The construction site is scheduled to re-open in March.
