The Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife confirmed another wolf pack in Stevens County last month, bringing the tally in the Tri-county region up to five.
WDFW confirmed the new âHuckleberry Packâ on June 29, naming the five gray wolf pups after Huckleberry Mountain near Fruitland.
The new pack is Washingtonâs seventh confirmed wolf pack, including the recently documented Ncâicn pack on the Colville Confederated Tribesâ reservation.
An additional five packs are also suspected in the state, according to WDFW.
Last Wednesday, Colville resident Krystal Anderson, 32, flexed her toes in her flip-flops and did a slow, casual spin, showing off her khaki shorts.
âI can finally wear these without worrying about being cold or wet, so in my mind, this is the first day of summer,â said Anderson. Anderson echoed a sentiment shared by many in the Colville valley and surrounding comÂŹmunities, what with record breaking amounts of rain for the area dominating the month of June.
A lot of fuss is made of Dr. William Foegeâs height. After all, the man is six-foot-seven-inches tall, so itâs safe to say he gets noticed in a crowded room.
But for a gentleman of such stature, both physically and professionally, he takes it with a grain of salt. Thatâs a laudable and venerated quality in a man who was recently awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for his work in helping to eradicate smallpox in the late 1970s.

The National Park Service (NPS) has their work cut out for them with the removal of Black Locust trees along 50 acres near Lake Roosevelt.
Currently in the planning and development stages, the project entails removing invasive black locusts that are choking out native plants and trees like pine and cottonwood. The majority of the tree removal will take place between the Kettle Falls Marina and Ski Point, which is south of Swim Beach near the Locust Grove Camp Ground.

By any estimation, a series of events last week acted as propellant for community concern and outrage in the Colville School District as cuts to teaching staff and debates about renewing the superintendentâs contract coincided with the annual âRally in the Park.â
Looking at Joe and June Machala, one might be tempted to make assumptions. The first could be that they are much younger than their actual years and the second that they have been fitness buffs their whole lives.
After all, when the couple is not enjoying fishing on Lake Roosevelt or looking after their home in Kettle Falls, they work out six days a week and run races and marathons all over the country. Both finished first in their respective age categories in the annual Bloomsday run for the masses earlier this month in Spokane.
